Such Men are Dangerous

Such Men are Dangerous

The Fanatics of 1692 and 2004

By Frances Hill

Most Americans, of course, would like to think that our modern-day leaders are more enlightened than the witch-hunting Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. But are they? This classic book, published in 2004, posits that leaders such as Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, and even George W. Bush are just the modern-day equivalents of Cotton Mather, John Hathorne, and William Phips. Frances Hill finds a frightening resemblance, and hopes that by remembering the past we can avoid repeating it. Hardcover $22.95 Reduced Price Scuffed Cover $10.95

Nurturing Your ADHD Child with Exercise

By Stephen C. Putnam

ADHD is a childhood epidemic. By some estimates, 5 percent or more of the school-age children in the U.S. have been diagnosed, and most of them are being treated with powerful prescription drugs.

Signs of Life

Signs of Life

A Memoir of Dying and Discovery

By Tim Brookes

“For a nation obsessed with the happy ending, we give remarkably little thought to our own,” writes Tim Brookes. “Our fictions are full of the desire to shape these final mythic moments — the good dying peacefully, or tragically, the bad falling from a great height onto sharp objects, the death perfectly or ironically illustrating the quality and virtue of the life. Yet in real life we’ll do anything to avoid even mentioning death, let alone anticipating it. The only encouragement we get to plan for our death is from life insurance companies who will go bankrupt if we don’t.”
