Without a voice since the age of six, she is trying to work things out about the world. She and her mother have moved into a rented Pennine farmhouse in which reminders of the man who lived there previously, William Crosby, lie all around her. Fighting to hold the outside world at bay, Mouse becomes increasingly drawn to William, a man who seems to have been haunted by secrets throughout the long life he spent in this house. As Mouse's investigations lead her towards some of the people who knew him, she unearths a collection of letters about William's experience in Europe as a young officer in the chaotic final weeks of World War II. But why, as Mouse begins to uncover the mysteries of William's past life, is she so keen to eliminate all traces of her own?
Money is with us every day, in daily transactions, stores of wealth or measures of debts. It measures the comfort and security in which we live and reflects the level of development of the countries and communities we inhabit. Out of control, money engenders inflation, while hoarding causes prices to collapse, taking with them businesses and jobs. But more than this, it possesses the power to make nations and fuel wars. Money is the subject of diplomacy and the tool of statesmen seeking to overthrow hostile regimes at home and abroad. Power over the issue of money shadows the transfer of political power over the centuries: from monarch to aristocracy to elected parliaments and unelected central banks. Hostile Money looks at currencies' role in revolution, war and civil war; its early importance as a privilege of the monarch and how that was undermined; the vital part money plays in creating new nations and as a means of exerting influence short of war on other nations. This is a history money, and so much more.
Taqueria is an homage to the best of Mexican cuisine. Across four chapters (Flavor Fiestas; Salsas, Salads & Vegetables, Taqueria and Margaritas & More), it is a crash course in cooking the food of Latin America. Starting with the building blocks, Paul Wilson shows that, with quality ingredients, attitude and a little application, you can create an authentic feast. The book includes more than 80 recipes, ranging from corn, prawn and bacon tortillas to homemade chorizo and sweet potato quesadillas. The salsas, salads & vegetables chapter recognizes the ever-growing appreciation for plant-based dishes with over 20 envelope-pushing vegetarian dishes. The package is loud, punchy and a little bit retro with bold colors that will especially speak to people who have visited, or are familiar, with Taqueria's of street-side Mexico.

Wickham's marriage had dissolved and so had his cushy job as a writer and academic at an Australian university. These two losses were irretrievable, but he was determined to recover title to the condominium that he had lost to a British crook in Phuket, Thailand.

But there was a price to be paid. Wickham had to pen a feature story about the Yank, an American who had crossed the line and turned Angeles into a paedophile paradise. "e;Sin city"e; was provocatively raunchy before but now, thanks to the Yank, it was criminally nauseating, and their ex-patriot lifestyle was under threat.Set in Thailand, the Philippines and Australia this fast-paced novel is erotic, gripping and provocative. The book deliberately takes issue with the essentially negative stereotypes that surround Caucasians living in Asia and challenges the reader to do the same.
Bringing together specialists from linguistics, psychology and philosophy, the book offers an exciting collection of papers assessing the conceptual representation of emotion and the conceptual relationship between emotion and language. The specific issues addressed include the analyses, based on corpus and cross-linguistic methodologies, of emotions such as pride, guilt, hope, despair, satisfaction, fear and anger in a number of languages, and how language shapes socialisation practices, such as in bilinguals. Finally, it provides good examples of the methods - from metaphor analysis to experimental studies - used to achieve a better understanding of the complexity and multi-dimensionality of the conceptualisation of emotion and the emotion-language relationship. Researchers and advanced students are likely to find this book an important reference work. (Vanda L. Zammuner, University of Padova, Italy)
