Arabian Plights
The Future Middle East
Peter Rodgers
Examining the Arab footprint throughoutthreads of a shared language, a mostlyshared religion, and overlapping historicalexperience, this discussion of cause andeffect—huge population growth, demandfor food, water, education, and jobs, inaddition to issues of global warming andnational and regional security—is the chal-lenge as Arabs prepare to meet the intensepressures of the 21st century. Arguing thatthe most direct way of cleaning up themess in today’s Middle East is to removethe Israeli–Palestinian conflict as the propboth for Arab illiberalism and for foreignmeddling, this exposé suggests that per-haps the real problem of the Arab world isthat it too closely mirrors the hypocrisiesalready present in the world.

Boom Bust
House Prices, Bankingand the Depression of 2010Second edition
Fred Harrison
“Those warnings were . . . well thought out and calculated.” —Marc Coleman,
Irish Independent
Author’s previous books sold more than20,000 copies
Using the United Kingdom as a casestudy, this well-researched accountshows how, for more than 200 years, aremarkably regular 18-year cycle of boom and bust can be traced to thepeaks and troughs in land prices. Thisexploration reveals how governments,during the upswing of the cycle, are com-plicit in encouraging a belief that proper-ty prices will continue upwards indefi-nitely because of their skilled manage-ment of the economy and attributes thecurrent crises to public policy on bothsides of the Atlantic. An alternative planto neutralize the next boom—one thatwould lead to a more stable and environ-mentally friendly economy with a moreequitable distribution of wealth—isalso presented.

Independent on Sunday
“A bold idea.” — 
GuardianPerforming a deft metaphorical eviscera-tion of Sigmund Freud’s classic 1919 essaythat delved deeply into the tradition of hor-ror writing, this freshly contemporary col-lection of literary interpretations reintro-duces to the world Freud’s compelling the-ory of 
das unheimliche
—or, the uncanny.Specifically designed to challenge the cre-ative boundaries of some of the mostfamed and respected horror writers work-ing today—such as A. S. Byatt, ChristopherPriest, Hanif Kureishi, Frank CottrellBoyce, Matthew Holness, and the indom-itable Ramsey Campbell—this anatomical-ly precise experiment encapsulates whatthe uncanny represents in the 21st century.Masterfully narrated with the benefit of unique perspectives on what exactly it isthat goes bump in the night, this chillingmodern collective is not only an essentialread for fans of horror but also an insight-ful and intriguing introduction to thegreats of the genre at their gruesome best.
