In his signature style of grand storytelling, James A. Michener transports us back thousands of years to the Holy Land. Through the discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, Michener vividly re-creates life in an ancient city and traces the profound history of the Jewish people—from the persecution of the early Hebrews, the rise of Christianity, and the Crusades to the founding of Israel and the modern conflict in the Middle East. An epic tale of love, strength, and faith, The Source is a richly written saga that encompasses the history of Western civilization and the great religious and cultural ideas that have shaped our world. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for The Source “Fascinating . . . stunning . . . [a] wonderful rampage through history . . . Biblical history, as seen through the eyes of a professor who is puzzled, appalled, delighted, enriched and impoverished by the spectacle of a land where all men are archeologists.”—The New York Times “A sweeping [novel] filled with excitement—pagan ritual, the clash of armies, ancient and modern: the evolving drama of man’s faith.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Magnificent . . . a superlative piece of writing both in scope and technique . . . one of the great books of this generation.”—San Francisco Call Bulletin

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST Kem Nunn’s “surf noir” classic is a thrilling plunge into the seedy underbelly of a Southern California beach town—the inspiration for the film Point Break. People go to Huntington Beach in search of the endless parties, the ultimate highs, and the perfect waves. Ike Tucker has come to look for his missing sister and for the three men who may have murdered her. In that place of gilded surfers and sun-bleached blonds, Ike’s search takes him on a journey through a twisted world of crazed Vietnam vets, sadistic surfers, drug dealers, and mysterious seducers. He looks into the shadows and finds parties that drift toward pointless violence, joyless vacations, and highs you may never come down from...and a sea of old hatreds and dreams gone bad. And if he’s not careful, his is a journey from which he will never return.

An examination of a number of English women novelists who portrayed the crises and conflicts in the development of the female consciousness as a response to the anomalies of the rapidly changing world of the early twentieth century when opportunities for self-expression and fulfilment were beginning to open up for women but nineteenth-century values and prejudices still widely prevailed. May Sinclair, Radclyffe Hall, Rosamond Lehmann, Antonia White and Dorothy Richardson are seen as outspoken and innovative writers often marginalised or ignored by serious criticism.

To their families and friends, they appeared to be as normal as everyday people. They were all in their late twenties, were from good families and had been educated at India's finest universities. But they were the modern-day outlaws of society. In the world of the Internet, they were cyberpunks and computer hackers. Calling themselves Doomsday, they made a pact with the Russian mafia. Their plan was to steal the source code to a critical computer program and then, using that source code, to remove $10 billion from US banks without a trace. Eight thousand miles away, Sarah Wynter, the director of a prestigious art gallery, unexpectedly became the sole heir to over $2 billion upon the death of her estranged uncle. Her rational world suddenly turned into one of terror. Using the stolen source code, Doomsday silently breached the firewalls of her banks' computers and stole the $2 billion. It then gave instructions to the mafia to kill her. In Richmond, Virginia, the identity of attorney John Ambrose is stolen by a Columbian drug cartel and used to traffic drugs.
