Historians have conventionally viewed intellectual and artistic achievement as a seamless progression in a single direction, with the Renaissance, as identified by Jacob Burckhardt, as the root and foundation of modern culture. But in this brilliant new analysis William Bouwsma rethinks the accepted view, arguing that while the Renaissance had a beginning and, unquestionably, a climax, it also had an ending. Examining the careers of some of the greatest figures of the age - Montaigne, Galileo, Jonson, Descartes, Hooker, Shakespeare, and Cervantes among many others - Bouwsma perceives in their work a growing sense of doubt and anxiety about the modern world. He considers first those features of modern European culture generally associated with the traditional Renaissance, features which reached their climax in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. But even as the movements of the Renaissance gathered strength, simultaneous impulses operated in a contrary direction. Bouwsma identifies a growing concern with personal identity, shifts in the interests of major thinkers, a decline in confidence about the future, and a heightening of anxiety.

But as her scars finally begin to heal, a cop involved with her horrific case remains convinced the Watt Lake Killer is still out there. He sets a lure for the murderer, and a fresh body is discovered. Now Olivia must face the impossible--could the butcher be back, this time to finish his job? As a frigid winter isolates the ranch, only one person can help Olivia: Cole McDonough, a ranch heir, writer, and adventurer who stirs long-dormant feelings in her.

"Lanton; the Americans lived there. All the cursing, spitting, ragged tired talk of days and dollars bled into the rural streets. There was stale contentment and it was predictable. Cheap rent. Old mills. 'Day in, day out, we do this all the same. We are noble, and we work all the same.' They voted on party lines. There were mothers and fathers sleeping in separate rooms. When it was no longer enough, they slept in separate homes with separate lovers. But they still believed in their way. There were lakes, rivers, rushing waters, stagnant ponds, stones awash in currents, trees of the New England forest, mud and fields, the hum of the distant trains as they carried industry towards the plain, the factory smoke clawing at the sun's throne, the towers of steel that hung strings of rusted latter rungs, the telephone poles crooked and brushed by the feather flown wings of pine trees, the birds calling home across the horizon line echo and the sorrowed deer that lost a mother to the hunter's gun, the bridges that hung, crumbling slowly, above the steady passage of the current, the sounds of wrenches turning and falling from the stiff hands of worn men, the ragged hum of diesel engines carrying heavy machinery to a new lot, a new site, for a new home. It was all there, perfectly rural, inharmonious, everlastingly without a known purpose other than to exist, as men must, in a world that no faith or science could and never will be able to explain. It was a chaotic sight to behold and sound to hear, all somehow flowing in unison with all of the mechanics of mankind. In that sense, the great course of cities and the roaming sprawls of the Midwest were not so much different than the Lanton reality. All land, all the concrete madness of Manhattan and Chicago or Los Angeles, all the grazed prairie and the open New Mexican desert, was part of that one perfect image. It all belonged to movement and time." The Waning Sun follows protagonist Parker Edison as he journeys through the final stages of youth in search of love, truth, and compassion. He stumbles upon lust and ventures into the American West where his faith of which he is uncertain is ultimately tested.

The Crescent Empire teeters on the edge of a revolution, and the Five Daughters of the Moon are the ones to determine its future. Alina, six, fears Gagargi Prataslav and his Great Thinking Machine. The gagargi claims that the machine can predict the future, but at a cost that no one seems to want to know. Merile, eleven, cares only for her dogs, but she smells that something is afoul with the gagargi. By chance, she learns that the machine devours human souls for fuel, and yet no one believes her claim. Sibilia, fifteen, has fallen in love for the first time in her life. She couldn't care less about the unrests spreading through the countryside. Or the rumors about the gagargi and his machine. Elise, sixteen, follows the captain of her heart to orphanages and workhouses. But soon she realizes that the unhappiness amongst her people runs much deeper that anyone could have ever predicted. And Celestia, twenty-two, who will be the empress one day. Lately, she's been drawn to the gagargi. But which one of them was the first to mention the idea of a coup? Inspired by the 1917 Russian revolution and the last months of the Romanov sisters, The Five Daughters of the Moon is a beautifully crafted historical fantasy with elements of technology fuelled by evil magic.

Undoing Ties claims to offer an answer to the question of what happens when the ties between traditional political institutions and citizens are being undone. The basic aim of the book is to offer an introductory and accessible overview of those paradigms and theories that are specifically concerned with the irreducible plurality of life forms and seek to understand how this challenge should be faced. The authors adopt an interdisciplinary approach to foreground how scholars in different areas (such as political philosophy, jurisprudence, sociology and anthropology) deal with one of the key characterizing elements of today's political scenario, that is to say, the reviviscence of sub-state and supra-state groups as crucial political actors vis-Á -vis the state.

In the Barrens, a vast wilderness in northern Canada bordering the Arctic Circle, night consumes every hour of the winter. Humans are scarce; ferocious predators roam freely. Locals say spirits do, too. Rookie cop Tana Larsson doesn t mind the dark and quiet. Five months pregnant and hoping to escape the mistakes of her past, she takes a post in Twin Rivers, population 320. Maybe here she can find peace and community for her child. But with her superior out of commission, Tana becomes the sole police officer in 17,500 square miles. One bitter night, she gets a call about the fatal wolf mauling of two students, and the only way to reach the remote scene is to enlist the help of the arrogant, irritatingly handsome Cameron Crash O Halloran, a local bush pilot with a shady reputation for smuggling and a past cloaked in shadow. When the macabre scene they uncover suggests violence much more sinister than animal, Tana must trust Crash if she wants to protect the town and herself from the evil that lurks in the frozen dark."

He surfaced two years ago. Then he disappeared. But Detective Angie Pallorino hasn't forgotten the violent rapist who left a distinctive calling card--crosses etched into the flesh of his victim's foreheads. When a comatose Jane Doe is found in a local cemetery, sexually assaulted, mutilated, and nearly drowned, Angie is struck by the eerie similarities to her earlier unsolved rapes. Could he be back? Then the body of a drowned young woman, also bearing the marks of the serial rapist, floats up in the Gorge, and the hunt for a predator becomes a hunt for a killer. Assigned to the joint investigative task force, Angie is more than ready to prove that she has what it takes to break into the all-male homicide division. But her private life collides with her professional ambitions when she's introduced to her temporary partner, James Maddocks--a man she'd met just the night before in an intense, anonymous encounter. Together, Angie and Maddocks agree to put that night behind them. But as their search for the killer intensifies, so does their mutual desire. And Angie's forays into the mind of a monster shake loose some unsettling secrets about her own past. How can she fight for the truth when it turns out her whole life is a lie?
