Mankind may be on the brink of extinction. This story begins with a family living in an underground bunker in the year 2052, while the world above is in total chaos. Nicholas and his family escaped their home in Denver and are now in New Mexico trying to survive an apocalyptic event caused by an approaching comet. The earth has been subject to natural and man-made disasters never before experienced by man. In the bunker, Nicholas reflects back on the past forty years of his life. He remembers the joyful times and the tragic events that changed everything. He relives the taking down of America by terrorist groups, the battle of Armageddon in the Middle East, natural disasters caused by great earthquakes and asteroids that changed the landscape around the world, and the great plague that killed a third of the world's population. In this doomsday scenario, 2052 Prophecies: The Last 40 Years puts readers in the bunker alongside Nicholas and his terrified family huddled together as the earth shakes violently from the comet's approach. Is it in the Prophecies that mankind will survive? Originally from Massachusetts,

When a ship ran aground more than 60 years ago on beautiful Lord Howe Island in the south-west Pacific rats escaped and attacked the unique Lord Howe Island stick insect, also known as a "land lobster." But more than 40 years later a minute colony was amazingly discovered on Balls Pyramid, a barren 500 metre tall pinnacle of rock just 23 km away from the island. This is the story of how Australian scientists and environmentalists have worked to save it from extinction and, possibly, return it to its original environment.

The story of the Olympic Games contains some remarkable business lessons. It is the story of how the nearly-bankrupt Olympic movement edged away from the abyss through visionary, and sometimes hard-headed leadership and the creation of a unique corporate marketing platform. Olympic Turnaround tells for the first time how the future of one of the world’s iconic institutions was secured. It is the story of a fine balancing act as an amateur organization struggled with and eventually embraced the business world. But it did so on its own terms, maintaining its identity, not compromising its core values and, in the process, establishing many of the ground rules of today’s sports marketing industry. Olympic Turnaround is also the story of the broadcast industry’s love affair with sport. It charts how companies began to understand the power of sport as a marketing and promotional tool. It is also a cautionary tale of success and failure – about how some nations learned to embrace the potential of hosting the world, while others, because of short-sighted political agendas, failed to see the opportunity. Packed with previously untold stories and case studies, this is the commercial story of the world’s most valuable and important franchise, the largest event in the world, the Olympic Games.

The Great New Wilderness Debate is an expansive, wide-ranging collection that addresses the pivotal environmental issues of the modern era. This eclectic volume on the varied constructions of “wilderness” reveals the recent controversies that surround those conceptions, and the gulf between those who argue for wilderness "preservation" and those who argue for "wise use." J. Baird Callicott and Michael P. Nelson have selected thirty-nine essays that provide historical context, range broadly across the issues, and set forth the positions of the debate. Beginning with such well-known authors as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Aldo Leopold, the collection moves forward to the contemporary debate and presents seminal works by a number of the most distinguished scholars in environmental history and environmental philosophy. The Great New Wilderness Debate also includes essays by conservation biologists, cultural geographers, environmental activists, and contemporary writers on the environment.
