Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader by Edited by John Bradley (£13.00)Publisher: University of Arizona Press — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816519560]Condition: Good+. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal: Exploring the Ghost Fleet of the South Pacific by Robert D. Ballard with Rick Archbold (£12.50)Publisher: New York: Warner Books — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0446516368]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily to the top corners which are near frayed, which is sunned at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “IRON BOTTOM SOUND… IT GETS ITS NAME FROM ALL the ships that sank there. From August to November of 1942 the tropical waters off the small island of Guadalcanal were the scene of some of the fiercest sea battles of World War II. Fifty years later, Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic and the Bismarck, took his exploration team to Guadalcanal. Their goal was not one ship but an entire naval battlefield. On board were some of the men who had served on those ships that now lay beneath Iron Bottom Sound. The memories of these survivors help tell a powerful, poignant story of men and ships and war.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal re-creates the whole story of the campaign that changed the course of the Pacific war. For all the fame of its air and land battles, Guadalcanal is also a compelling story of sailors and warships. In fact, more Americans died in Guadalcanal waters than on land. The terror and confusion of night naval action is conveyed here in gripping chapters that describe first the bitter American defeat in the Battle of Savo Island and then the struggle to eventual victory in the climactic Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. We then descend in Ballard’s submarine to view scenes of American, Australian, and Japanese ships lying together on the ocean floor, their guns still eerily pointing at each other.

With over 300 illustrations, this book has all the pictorial richness that helped make bestsellers of Robert Ballard’s two previous books, The Discovery of the Titanic and The Discovery of the Bismarck. Haunting pictures of the wrecks are paired with photographs of the ships in their prime; a spectacular full-page foldout reveals the USS Quincy and the Canberra, painted in accurate detail by maritime artist Ken Marschall. Full-colour maps and diagrams plus a host of paintings and present-day photographs help to both re-create this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Pacific war and convey the excitement of modern underwater exploration.”

Stalin's Silver by John Beasant (£11.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780747523444]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the upper panel notably ruffled otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “On the night of 28 August 1944 three torpedoes from the German submarine U-859 sank the American merchant ship USS John Barry in the Arabian Sea off the eastern seaboard of Oman. The holds of the Barry contained 3 million silver Saudi riyals worth $80 million and over $300 million in silver bullion. The 7200-ton ship broke into two pieces and sank to a depth of 8500 feet, more than one and a half miles. For forty-five years the great depth of the wreck ruled out any thoughts of salvage. However, in 1989 salvage rights were acquired by Sheikh Ahmed Farid al Aulaqi who engaged the French International Maritime Institute and Jean Roux, leader of the team which recovered artefacts from the Titanic. Roux and his team have developed technology which has resulted in an operation of deep-sea recovery never before possible. In Stalin’s Silver the story of the USS John Barry is recreated with the help of living survivors, including one of the German U-boat officers, and the mystery of the intended destination of $300 million in silver is resolved. Stalin’s Silver is as much a sensational story of politics and intrigue between governments during World War II as it is the story of the salvage of the world’s most valuable and mysterious sunken treasure.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". 216 pages.

It's a Matter of Survival by Anita Gordon & David Suzuki (£10.50)Publisher: Toronto: Stoddart Publishing Co. — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0773724214]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author (Suzuki) on the half-title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “This is a call to action. No longer can we afford the luxury of avoiding reality: much of the planet is dying, and we are, all of us, the cause. Our explosive population growth, our voracious consumption of natural resources, our reckless polluting of the world have created an unprecedented threat to civilization.

Scientists tell us we have the next decade to avert disaster, to salvage our children’s future; that if we are to prevent massive famine, disease, and war, we must radically transform society and our lives.

We have reached this point because we cling to beliefs that are called in this book sacred truths, but they are neither sacred nor true. They include the notion that nature is infinite, growth is progress, science and technology will solve our problems, all of nature is at our disposal, and we can manage the planet. To continue to subscribe to these sacred truths is to ensure the destruction of civilization as we know it.

The task that lies ahead of us is great, and it demands more of each of us than recycling our newspapers and composting our food scraps. We must reassess our priorities and reconsider our values.”
