1 "Yellow Kid" Weil: The Autobiography of America's Master Swindler

Weil, J.R. "Yellow Kid"ť & Brannon, W.T. 1849350213 / 9781849350211 Paperback

Brand New 

Bilked bankers, grifted gamblers, and swindled spinsters. Welcome to the world of confidence men. You'll marvel at the elaborate schemes developed by The Yellow Kid and cry for the marks who lost it all to his ingenuity $8,000,000 by some estimations. Fixed horse races, bad real-estate deals, even a money-making machine, were all tools of the trade for the Kid and his associates: The Swede, The Butterine Kid, The Harmony Kid, Fats Levine, and others. Dozens of his schemes are laid out in full detail, told with wit and style. A fantastic, engaging read-you won't be able to put it down! Joseph Yellow Kid Weil was born in 1877 to German immigrant grocers in Chicago. He worked a number of odd jobs before executing a startling number of scams, primarily in the Chicago area but all over the world. He lived to be 101, and is said to have stolen over eight million dollars in total. I never cheated an honest man, only rascals. They wanted something for nothing. I gave them nothing for something.-Joseph Yellow Kid Weil

4 , Said the Shotgun to the Head

Williams, Saul MTV Books 2003 743470796 Trade paperback

New 

Williams co-wrote and starred in the film Slam, was featured in the documentaries Slam Nation and I'll Make Me a World, and rapped to Rick Rubin-produced tracks on his hybrid album Amethyst Rock Star. Following The Seventh Octave (1998) and S/he (1999), Williams's third print collection (this time with no CD), is described as an epic, and begins with a chilling epigraph from Paul Robeson on the warped combine of Western values, creativity, star power and suicide. It prefigures the set of toxic contradictions Williams attempts to negotiate, moving quickly into big-fonted oracular mode, channeling those ships that never sailed/ the ones with their seacocks open/ that lied scuttled in their stalls/ TODAY/ i bring them back/ HUGE AND INTRANSITORY-simultaneously invoking thwarted ambition, sexual exposure, the Middle Passage, and attempts to lie (dissimulate as well as collapse) through it all. Throughout the book, Williams draws on messianic postures and pronouncements that are non-starters, dragging out the most shopworn heresies and tropes: we will wait through the degenerate course/ of your repeated history/ we will wait for the past to die. Yet such moments are repeatedly undercut by brief, understated bouts of lyrical intimacy and self-scrutiny: i cannot make/ your past disappear/ only rabbits, my love/ only rabbits. It is through their juxtaposition that readers glimpse the pathos of a poet struggling with a literally unspeakable historical past, and deeply unworkable present-as well as levity in the futility of trying to dispel it all with corporate-backed, art-based bunnies. (A mock interview between a Journalist and Maned Character delves into the contradictions of being published by MTV. ) The end result is an oblique attempt at moving past flawed concepts of gender, violence, race, religion and exchange, proceeding by sheer will and sometimes a turn the music up determination. Despite an absurdly overblown conclusion, it works-almost despit

7 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military



New 

A short, snappy handbook detailing why the military may need you, but you really don't need it. "The Army's top recruiter, already struggling to meet his quotas this year, said ….that 2006 would be even harder, and perhaps the toughest year for recruiting since the all-volunteer force began in 1973."—The New York Times, May 13, 2005 So you're walking out of school and parked at the gate is a new, bright red Ford Mustang with a hulk of a man in the front seat. He's sporting a razor cut and wraparound shades. Before you can pass he's out of the car and blocking your path. "Mind if I take a minute"—he has you by the arm now—"to tell you about the great life in today's Army and why you should seriously think about signing up?" The armed forces are having a tough time attracting new recruits lately, in no small part due to the mess in Iraq. Young people are getting wise to the many excellent reasons not to join the U.S. Military, and this handy book brings them all together, combining accessible writing with hard facts and devastating personal testimony. Contributors with firsthand experience point out the dangers facing soldiers, describe the tricks used by recruiters, and emphasize that there really are other options, even in a sluggish economy. It's essential reading for anyone thinking of signing up. Over 2,000 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and over 14,000 have been wounded. • Nearly 100,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq as a result of the U.S. invasion. • One in six soldiers returning from Iraq experiences mental health problems. • Two-thirds of all recruits receive no college funding from the military, and only 15 percent graduate with a four-year degree. • According to the VA, 90 percent of recent women veterans reported experiencing sexual harassment; a third were raped.

8 10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank

Danaher, Kevin Paperback

Brand New 

A veritable “Globalization for Dummies,” 10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Banklays bare the most common myths of globalization in a clear and understandable way.Looking with hope to grassroots movement-building on a global scale, Danaher presents ten arguments for abolishing the IMF and World Bank and replacing them with democratic institutions that would make the global economy more accountable to an informed and active citizenry. Conceived as an effort to educate the public about how international institutions of “free trade” are widening the gap between the rich and poor globally, Danaher reveals how the lending policies of the IMF and the World Bank fail to benefit Third World peoples, and instead line the pockets of undemocratic rulers and western corporations while threatening local democracies and forcing cuts to social programs. Through anecdotes, analysis, and innovative ideas, Danaher argues that the IMF and the World Bank undermine our most basic democratic values, and calls for reframing the terms on which international economic institutions are operated using the principles of environmental sustainability, social justice, and human rights.

13 12 Steps to Raw Foods: How to End Your Dependency on Cooked Food

Boutenko, Victoria, and Cousens, Gabriel, M.D. (Foreword by) North Atlantic Books 2007 9.78E+12 Revised ed. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 267 p. Audien 

Why do we overeat time and time again? Why do we make poor diet choices while we want to be healthy? What makes losing weight so difficult? These and many other vital questions are addressed in 12 Steps to Raw Foods in an open and sincere dialogue. Based on the latest scientific research, Victoria Boutenko explains the numerous benefits of choosing a diet of fresh rather than cooked foods. This book contains self-tests and questionnaires that help the reader to determine if they have hidden eating patterns that undermine their health. Using examples from life, the author explores the most common reasons for people to make unhealthy eating choices. Rather than simply praising the benefits of raw foods, this book offers helpful tips and coping techniques to form and maintain new, healthy patterns. Learn how to make a raw food restaurant card that makes dining with co-workers easy and enjoyable. Discover three magic sentences that enable you to refuse your mother-in-law s apple pie without offending her. Find out how to sustain your chosen diet while traveling. These are only a few of the many scenarios that Boutenko outlines. Written in a convenient 12-step format, this book guides the reader through the most significant physical, psychological, and spiritual phases of the transition from cooked to raw foods. Embracing the raw food lifestyle is more than simply turning off the stove. Such a radical change in the way we eat affects all aspects of life. Boutenko touches on the human relationship with nature, the value of supporting others, and the importance of living in harmony with people who don t share the same point of view on eating. Already a classic, this enhanced second edition is aimed at anyone interested in improving their health through diet.

16 1492-1992: The Legacy of Columbus

Zinn, Howard 1604865016 / 9781604865011 Audio CD

Brand New! 

Discussing the legacy of Columbus, including 500 years of indigenous resistance, “bothers the defenders of Western civilization, those people who have benefited from Western civilization, or who think they will benefit from it in some way. They are bothered by the fact that more and more Americans want to look at what happened then from a different point of view. Because we’ve been looking at it from one point of view for all these hundreds of years, looking at slavery from a white point of view, at Columbus from a white point of view, at women and the issue of sexual equality from the male point of view, looking at history from very specific, limited points of view. People have begun to look at history from the point of view of those people who have been invisible, overlooked, oppressed.” —Howard Zinn, from the CD. In this instant classic, recorded on the eve of the quincentennial, legendary historian Howard Zinn returns to the themes he popularized in his masterful A People’s History of the United States—how we interpret history, and what that tells us about the struggles of the vast majority of folks typically written out of the narrative. With his trademark wit, erudition, and generosity, he stands history on its head, to better illuminate, understand, and act upon the past, present, and future.

22 1” Anonymous Button

Last Word Press Button



A 1” button featuring Anonymous' logo. Anonymous (used as a mass noun) is an Internet meme that originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. It is also generally considered to be a blanket term for members of certain Internet subcultures, a way to refer to the actions of people in an environment where their actual identities are not known. In its early form, the concept has been adopted by a decentralized online community acting anonymously in a coordinated manner, usually toward a loosely self-agreed goal, and primarily focused on entertainment. Beginning with 2008, the Anonymous collective has become increasingly associated with collaborative, international hacktivism, undertaking protests and other actions, often in retaliation against anti-digital piracy campaigns by motion picture and recording industry trade associations. Actions credited to Anonymous are undertaken by unidentified individuals who apply the Anonymous label to themselves as attribution. Although not necessarily tied to a single online entity, many websites are strongly associated with Anonymous. This includes notable imageboards such as 4chan, their associated wikis, Encyclopædia Dramatica, and a number of forums. After a series of controversial, widely-publicized protests and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks by Anonymous in 2008, incidents linked to its cadre members have increased. In consideration of its capabilities, Anonymous has been posited by CNN to be one of the three major successors toWikiLeaks.

23 1” D.B. Cooper Button

Last Word Press Button



A 1” button featuring a sketch of D.B. Cooper from an old FBI Most Wanted poster. D. B. Cooper is the name popularly used to refer to an unidentified man who hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft in the airspace between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington on November 24, 1971. He extorted $200,000 in ransom and parachuted to an uncertain fate. Despite an extensive manhunt and an exhaustive (and ongoing) FBI investigation, the perpetrator has never been located or positively identified. The case remains the only unsolved air piracy in American aviation history. The suspect purchased his airline ticket under the alias Dan Cooper, but due to a news media miscommunication he became known in popular lore as D. B. Cooper. Hundreds of leads have been pursued in the ensuing years but no conclusive evidence has ever surfaced regarding Cooper's true identity or whereabouts, and the bulk of the ransom money has never been recovered. Numerous theories of widely varying plausibility have been proposed by experts, reporters, and amateur enthusiasts. While FBI investigators have insisted from the beginning that Cooper probably did not survive his risky jump, the agency maintains an active case file—which has grown to more than 60 volumes—and continues to solicit creative ideas and new leads from the public. Maybe a hydrologist can use the latest technology to trace the $5,800 in ransom money found in 1980 to where Cooper landed upstream, suggested Special Agent Larry Carr, leader of the investigation team since 2006. Or maybe someone just remembers that odd uncle.

This full-color book captures the power and beauty of 30 million people making history. One hundred, thirty-one photographs of the demonstrations from 30 cities—including Amsterdam, Baghdad, Tehran, Santiago de Chile, Tokyo, New York, Dhaka, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Tel Aviv, Glasgow, Paris, Rome, Sydney, Cairo, and San Francisco—coupled with selected quotes from numerous notables and supporters, including Koki Annan, Uri Avnery, Leslie Cagan, Yuri Dojc, Gunter Grass, A.L. Kennedy, Michael Moore, Camille Paglia, Tim Robbins, Arundhati Roy, Jose Saramago, Susan Sontag, Thabo Mbeki, and Noam Chomsky. This beautiful hardcover edition—created by Hello [NYC]—includes an introductory essay from Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and founder of the Gandhi Institute For Non-Violence. If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that's one thing, but the people in power can live with that. What they can't live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organizations that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time. —Noam Chomsky
