Part memoir, part study, The Making of a Philosopher is the self–portrait of a deeply intelligent mind as it develops over a life on both sides of the Atlantic. The Making of a Philosopher follows Colin McGinn from his early years in England reading Descartes and Anselm, to his years in the states, first in Los Angeles, then New York. McGinn presents a contemporary academic take on the great philosophical figures of the twentieth century, including Bertrand Russell, Jean–Paul Sartre, and Noam Chomsky, alongside stories of the teachers who informed his ideas and often became friends and mentors, especially the colorful A.J. Ayer at Oxford. McGinn's prose is always elegant and probing; students of contemporary philosophy and the general reader alike will absorb every page.

The sets of landscape etchings produced in the second decade of the seventeenth century by Claes Jansz. Visscher, Esaias van den Velde, Willem Buytewech, and Jan van de Velde drew on and contributed to a print culture that played a key role in defining "Dutch" landscape. Examination of these printed landscape series as part of a wide-ranging print culture underscores the consistent interrelationship of landscape, history, and politics. To varying degrees, the contemporaneous descriptive geographies, histories, allegorical tableaux, didactic prints, and poetic anthologies considered in this study provide parallels for the prints' serial structure, journey theme, and commemorative motifs. Moreover, as part of a wider enterprise of Dutch self-definition, they provide cultural guidelines for the interpretation of landscape in prints and paintings. Levesque's study of the Dutch seventeenth-century experience of place is two-tiered. She addresses the journey through landscape as an interpretive framework, the spatial structure of knowledge, the benefits of travel from the point of view of humanists, and the growth of a Dutch national self-consciousness expressed through landscape. She also provides a close reading of the structure and motifs in the print series of Claes Jansz. Visscher, Esaias van den Velde, Willem Buytewech, and Jan van de Velde.

One Woman's Journey through a Challenging Century is the beautiful, true story of a strong, resilient woman. Born six days before WWI ended, Edrel grew up in the heart of that century and shares ninety years of her experiences. Edrel was one of eight children, whose parents instilled in them the need to have faith and trust in God. This is the story of a little timid girl who took more than twenty years to come out of her shell. But when she did, she accepted every challenge that came her way. The challenges ranged from initiating the first anti-drug club for children in the 1960s to serving on various national committees. The club, called Help Dan, grew in popularity and was implemented in thirty-eight states. This, and other accomplishments, earned her several major awards including Alaska Mother of the Year and also Military Wife of the Year for all five branches of the military. Edrel toured with Art Linkletter and his entourage across the United States, was twice an honored guest in the White House, and is an honoree in the National Women's History Museum. Inspiring and bold, One Woman's Journey through a Challenging Century takes you along on a remarkable life journey that spans the twentieth century, two continents, and seven states.
