"...I grew up in my father's supermarket. In the aisles, between and behind the displays, pushing a broom, at the cash register, making deliveries... seeing all the different neighbors coming in shopping, saying "hello," while patting me on the head..." Lessons From Behind the Counter is both a memoir and an inspirational business leadership guide capturing the journey of the Estevez family and their passionate pursuit of the American Dream. In his debut book, Robin Estevez, a first-generation Dominican-American, vividly shares memories of working alongside his immigrant father who taught him and his siblings important life lessons about business, family, and community. Through colorful, often humorous anecdotes and moving poetry, Robin reflects on personal experiences that shape the man, the father and the entrepreneur he becomes - which each vignette building upon the next. The reader learns how the Estevez family's humble beginnings coupled with an unwavering bond leads to their present day success as owners of a chain of grocery stores throughout the New York and New Jersey. Spanning three generations and two continents, from rural farms in the Dominican Republic to neighborhood streets of Washington Heights, this book creatively illustrates the intersection of Dominican heritage and American cultural identity that creates a distinct family legacy.

For almost twenty years, D Acres of New Hampshire has challenged and expanded the common definition of a farm. As an educational centre that researches, applies, and teaches skills of sustainable living and small-scale organic farming, D Acres serves more than just a single function to its community. By turns it is a hostel for travellers to northern New England, a training centre for everything from metal- and woodwork to cob building and seasonal cooking, a gathering place for music, poetry, joke-telling, and potluck meals, and much, much more. In Community-Scale Homesteading, author and D Acres founder Josh Trought describes not only the history of the project, but its evolving principles and practices, all rooted in the land, its inhabitants, and the joy inherent in collective empowerment. From working with oxen to working with a board of directors, no other book contains such a wealth of innovative ideas and ways to make your farm or homestead not only more sustainable, but more inclusive of, and beneficial to, the larger community.

The destruction of wildlife habitats ... organized crime ... AIDS ... illiteracy ... acid rain -- these are among the 130,000 topics documented and discussed in the new edition of the Encyclopedia. But its truly unique goal is to present this complex set of issues in ways that facilitate an organized response. To this end, the book also focuses on the complex relationship between problems and society's own ideological relationship with these problems. How do human priorities and perceptions aggravate or enable problems? What are the established and alternative responses? The Encyclopedia contains over 158,000 cross-references between entries, an extensive 91,000 practical key term index, bibliographies, and full cross-referencing to the Yearbook of International Organizations. For anyone concerned with the world community, here are the means to explore and participate in today's most crucial endeavors. A new addition to the work, Volume 3, Action -- Strategies -- Solutions, presents strategies for coping with world problems, with an emphasis on vicious self-sustaining cycles of problems.
