The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe Summary

When Edgar Allan Poe’s only novella was first published in 1838, the reviews were slow in coming and dismissive when they arrived. The book’s failure left Poe in such dire financial straits that he even accepted a job at one of the magazines that had panned it. But The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket has since become one of his most influential works: Baudelaire translated it, Paul Theroux read it out loud to Jorge Luis Borges, Jules Verne wrote a sequel to it, H. P. Lovecraft drew on it in creating his own tales of the Antarctic . . . Ostensibly, it’s a classic adventure story about a young boy who runs away to sea and encounters all the classic scenarios: mutinies, storms, shipwrecks, ravenous sharks, hostile natives. And Poe drew on many contemporary accounts of exploration in the South Seas to give his story a sense of verisimilitude. But there are far deeper currents at work in the book than mere adventure: elements of the supernatural as they near the South Pole, evocations of the protagonists’ experiences at sea that rival Poe’s best tales of horror, and a disturbing ending that continues to stir debate.

The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson Summary

With the same unique vision that brought his now classic Mars trilogy to vivid life, bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson boldly imagines an alternate history of the last seven hundred years. In his grandest work yet, the acclaimed storyteller constructs a world vastly different from the one we know. . . . “A thoughtful, magisterial alternate history from one of science fiction’s most important writers.”—The New York Times Book Review It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur—the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe’s population was destroyed. But what if the plague had killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? This is a look at the history that could have been—one that stretches across centuries, sees dynasties and nations rise and crumble, and spans horrible famine and magnificent innovation. Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson navigates a world where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practiced religions, while Christianity is merely a historical footnote. Probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power—and even love—in this bold New World. “Exceptional and engrossing.”—New York Post “Ambitious . . . ingenious.”—Newsday

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga Summary

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE The stunning Booker Prize–winning novel from the author of Amnesty and Selection Day that critics have likened to Richard Wright’s Native Son, The White Tiger follows a darkly comic Bangalore driver through the poverty and corruption of modern India’s caste society. “This is the authentic voice of the Third World, like you've never heard it before” (John Burdett, Bangkok 8). The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai, a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the zenith of Indian business culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of China’s impending trip to Bangalore, Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant to a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society. Recalling The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition, scope, The White Tiger is narrative genius with a mischief and personality all its own. Amoral, irreverent, deeply endearing, and utterly contemporary, this novel is an international publishing sensation—and a startling, provocative debut.

Dispelling the Darkness by John van Wyhe Summary

“The facts of variability, of the struggle for existence, of adaptation to conditions, were notorious enough; but none of us had suspected that the road to the heart of the species problem lay through them, until Darwin and Wallace dispelled the darkness.”T H Huxley (1887) Darwin is one of the most famous scientists in history. But he was not alone. Comparatively forgotten, Wallace independently discovered evolution by natural selection in Southeast Asia. This book is based on the most thorough research ever conducted on Wallace's voyage. Closely connected, but worlds apart, Darwin and Wallace's stories hold many surprises. Did Darwin really keep his theory a secret for twenty years? Did he plagiarise Wallace? Were their theories really the same? How did Wallace hit on the solution, and on which island? This book reveals for the first time the true story of Darwin, Wallace and the discovery that would change our understanding of life on Earth forever.

Keywords:Evolution;Natural Selection;Biology;Biography;Alfred Russel Wallace;Charles Darwin;History of Science;Malay ArchipelagoKey Features:The book provides a thorough revision of Wallace in Southeast Asia and his discoveries. Numerous current understandings of Wallace are shown to be mythsThe book reveals the details of Wallace's steamer trip to AsiaHis Singapore stay is revealed for the first time — with many surprising new detailsHis famous Sarawak law paper is shown to be radically different from existing interpretationsIt includes a previously unknown component of his theorising — Wallace's deep lawThe book solves the mystery of what led to Wallace's eureka moment of discovering natural selectionThe book solves the long-standing mystery of whether he discovered evolution on Ternate or GiloloThe book is the first to show what Wallace's original evolution theory really was — it was rather different from Darwin's. This settles the old debate about the differences between the theories of Wallace and DarwinThe book solves the old mystery of when Wallace sent his theory to Darwin — and WHY he did not send it straight for publicationThe book corrects scores of dates and names never given or given wrong by WallaceReviews: “The story of Wallace will never be the same again. John van Wyhe has delved deeply into archives and brings Wallace's travels wonderfully back to life by discovering new facts about his voyage and theories. Without downplaying the impact of Darwin, van Wyhe's book reveals Wallace as a great evolutionary thinker in his own right, who truly deserves to be considered in context.” Janet Browne Aramont Professor of the History of Science Harvard University “This book greatly advances our knowledge of Wallace by correcting a plethora of misleading myths, by reconstructing Wallace's travels, experiences and reflections with authoritative precision, interpretive sophistication, archival documentation and by insightful clarifications of Wallace and Darwin's interactions, divergences and convergences. The overall result is a major scholarly contribution to the intellectual and social history of Wallacean science and of Darwinian science in their original, distinctive cultural contexts.” Jonathan Hodge Honorary Fellow, History and Philosophy of Science University of Leeds “The first published notebook of Wallace's travel to the Malay Archipelago is a long-awaited addition to all the biographies and studies, as they offer the unique insight into the development of Wallace's thinking during his long journey. John van Wyhe makes extensive use of Wallace's notes, but only in their totality they make an impact and give way to emergence of Wallace's personality in many sides.” Thomas Weber Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung “Van Wyhe is not guilty of any such bias against Wallace and in fact deserves these reviewers' thanks for elucidating for the first time exactly how these two fascinating men discovered the way life on Earth evolves.” Gordon Chancellor, author of The Dispersal of Darwin “The book has marvelous illustrations of the flora and fauna observed by Wallace, as well as other images of the period, and is ideal for historian as well as naturalists.” CHOICE “This book is certainly one of the best resources for documenting Wallace's time in the Malay archipelago, as well as giving a good and balanced overview of his life. It also achieves what the author sets out to do: putting the record straight.” Biological Journal of the Linnean Society

The Mad Voyage of Prince Malock (Fantasy) by Timothy L. Cerepaka Summary

No mortal has ever sailed to the end of the world and returned to tell the tale. Legend says that the southern seas are full of monsters, lethal storms, and monstrous entities even the gods cannot conceive. Only a brave hero or a reckless fool would ever willingly venture into these deadly waters. Prince Tojas Malock travels to the southern seas in response to the summons from a goddess he has never met. To conquer these seas, Malock recruits the finest crew money can buy: An intelligent but haughty mage, an old fisherman with a mysterious past, a young female assassin, and a woman who knows far more than she lets on. With his ragtag crew of sailors behind him, Malock heads to the end of the world, ready for whatever the seas have to throw at him. But with mortal-eating gods, murderous pirates, and a traitor within the crew itself, Malock's voyage may end in tragedy.

The Meaning of Truth by Dr. William James Summary

Preeminent American philosopher and educator John Dewey (1859-1952) rejected Hegelian idealism for the pragmatism of William James. In this collection of informal originally published between 1897 and 1909, Dewey articulates his now classic philosophical concepts of knowledge and truth and the nature of reality. Here Dewey introduces his scientific method and uses critical intelligence to reject the traditional ways of viewing philosophical discourse. Knowledge cannot be divorced from experience; it is gradually acquired through interaction with nature. Philosophy, therefore, has to be regarded as itself a method of knowledge and not as a repository of disembodied, pre-existing absolute truths.

The Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin Summary

In 1831, Charles Darwin embarked on an expedition that, in his own words, determined my whole career. The Voyage of the Beagle chronicles his five-year journey around the world and especially the coastal waters of South America as a naturalist on the H.M.S. Beagle. While traveling through these unexplored countries collecting specimens, Darwin began to formulate the theories of evolution and natural selection realized in his master work, The Origin of Species. Travel memoir and scientific primer alike, The Voyage of the Beagle is a lively and accessible introduction to the mind of one of history's most influential thinkers.
