Birds do it, and bees do it, so do all animals, some of them in weird and wonderful ways. Quirks & Quarks' latest book explores the more bizarre behaviours of more than 100 creatures, from barnacles to Panda bears. The tiny spider that has to tear off one of its two huge sex organs just to be able to get around; the sea slug that produces a powerful love drug and mates with both males and females; the bedbug that stabs its penis into the female's abdomen — the range of animal sexual practices is mind-boggling. And it's not only reproduction that has them doing very strange things. There's a beetle that shoots a stream of boiling hot, toxic liquid when it's threatened; a lizard that can run on water; a shrimp that explodes its prey. Quirks & Quarks' latest guide is much more than a catalogue of peculiar practices, it's an engrossing look at the astonishing behaviours different animals have evolved in order to survive and reproduce. With an introduction by Bob McDonald, host of Quirks & Quarks. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Conceived to be a practical reference grammar for those who may have basic skills in Moroccan Arabic, this classic volume teaches the phonology, morphology, and syntax of the dialect. Originally published in 1962, A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic features the spoken language of the urban speakers of the northwestern part of Morocco, especially Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. The Arabic has been transcribed for the English-speaking student. The accompanying audio files, keyed to the text, demonstrate the pronunciation of the Arabic transcribed in the book. These mp3 files are available for free online at www.press.georgetown.edu.

يروى الكاتب فى هذا الكتاب أنه حدث فى تلك الايام التى كنت فيها مشردا أتضور جوعا فى مدينة كريستيانا,تلك المدينة العجيبة التى لا يغادرها أحد قبل أن تسمه بسماتها وتترك عليه آثارها.كنت راقدا متيقظا فى مخدعى الحقير الواقع تحت سند السقف, فسمعت تحتى فى الدور الأول ساعة تدق ست دقات,وكان الصبح قد تنفس وأخذ الناس يصعدون السلم ويهبطون.
