In this, his first book on the subject of investigations, Ragnar offers readers two books in one. He reveals how PIs, cops and military interrogators conduct interviews, investigations and interrogations, and he also shows prospective witnesses how to survive them. For investigators, he shares his professional secrets and real-life scenarios for creating effective pretexts for any situation, opening up a witness and keeping him talking, recognizing and listening to nonverbal clues and deciding whether to use honey or vinegar to get the desired results. Then he turns the tables on his fellow investigators and gives potential witnesses specific tips for avoiding or at least surviving the tactics, techniques and tricks favored by skilled investigators. Whether you want to be an investigator or avoid one, you won't want to miss this book. Ragnar Benson is America's most-esteemed survival expert.

 810.  GUERRILLA GUNSMITHING Quick and Dirty Methods for Fixing Firearms in Desperate Times

Benson, Ragnar Paladin Press 2000 Trade Paperback

New 

There may come a time when government restrictions severely limit not only access to firearms but the tools and means to repair and maintain them, or you may someday find yourself in the boondocks with a busted weapon. That's where the guerrilla gunsmith comes in. Ragnar Benson has had experience fixing "junk" guns in some tough places around the world, and here he shares some innovative ways to patch up, cobble together and otherwise make operational everything from antique rifles still found in remote war zones to modern firearms suffering from appalling abuse. Drawing on lessons and stories from backwoods experts he's worked with under desperate conditions in Africa, the Philippines, Thailand, Pakistan and beyond, Ragnar tells how to employ last-resort but effective techniques to remove hopelessly stuck rounds and other barrel obstructions, straighten bent barrels, replace lost parts, smooth out dented magazines, make repairs to some pretty hopeless stocks, scrounge up workable ammo and more. These are last-ditch, do-it-yourself methods, but they may be all you'll have to fall back on deep in the bush or with your back to the wall, when the only things between you and the enemy are a rifle and the know-how to make it work. Warning: Actual construction of the firearms described in these books and videos may be illegal under federal law. The BATF actively pursues and prosecutes anybody who violates firearm statutes. Ragnar Benson is America's most-esteemed survival expert. He has written more than 20 books for Paladin throughout the years on a variety of topics covering everything from weapons to politics to survival medicine.

Benyus, Janine M Harper Perennial 2002 60533226 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 320 p. Audien 

This profound and accessible book details how science is studying nature s best ideas to solve our toughest 21st-century problems. If chaos theory transformed our view of the universe, biomimicry is transforming our life on Earth. Biomimicry is innovation inspired by nature taking advantage of evolution s 3.8 billion years of R&D since the first bacteria. Biomimics study nature s best ideas: photosynthesis, brain power, and shells and adapt them for human use. They are revolutionising how we invent, compute, heal ourselves, harness energy, repair the environment, and feed the world. Science writer and lecturer Janine Benyus names and explains this phenomenon. She takes us into the lab and out in the field with cutting-edge researchers as they stir vats of proteins to unleash their computing power; analyse how electrons zipping around a leaf cell convert sunlight into fuel in trillionths of a second; discover miracle drugs by watching what chimps eat when they re sick; study the hardy prairie as a model for low-maintenance agriculture; and more.

 817.  After the Future

Berardi, Franco “Bifi” AK 1849350590 Paperback

Brand New! 

After the Future explores our century-long obsession with the concept of the future. Beginning with F. T. Marinetti's Futurist Manifesto and the worldwide race toward a new and highly mechanized society that defined the Century of Progress, highly respected media activist Franco Berardi traces the genesis of future-oriented thought through the punk movement of the early '70s and into the media revolution of the '90s. Cyberculture, the last truly utopian vision of the future, has ended in a clash, and left behind an ever-growing system of virtual life and actual death, of virtual knowledge and actual war. Our future, Berardi argues, has come and gone; the concept has lost its usefulness. Now it's our responsibility to decide what comes next. Drawing on his own involvement with the Autonomia movement in Italy and his collaboration and friendship with leading thinkers of the European political left, including Félix Guattari and Antonio Negri, Berardi presents a highly nuanced analysis of the state of the contemporary working class, and charts a course out of the modern dystopian moment. Franco Berardi, better known in the United States as Bifo, is an Italian autonomist philosopher and media activist. One of the founders of the notorious Radio Alice, a pirate radio station that became the voice of the autonomous youth movement of Bologna in the late 1970s, Bifo is the author of multiple works of theory, including the recently published The Soul at Work and The Post-Futurist Manifesto.

 844.  The Left Left Behind

Bisson, Terry Paperback

Brand New 

Hugo and Nebula award-winner Terry Bisson is best known for his short stories, which range from the southern sweetness of Bears Discover Fire to the alienated aliens of Theyre Made Out of Meat. He is also a 1960s New Left vet with a history of activism and an intact (if battered) radical ideology. The Left Behind novels (about the so-called Rapture in which all the born-agains ascend straight to heaven) are among the bestselling Christian books in the US, describing in lurid detail the adventures of those left behind to battle the Anti-Christ. Put Bisson and the Born-Agains together, and what do you get? The Left Left Behind--a sardonic, merciless, tasteless, take-no-prisoners satire of the entire apocalyptic enterprise that spares no one--predatory preachers, goth lingerie, Pacifica radio, Indian casinos, gangsta rap, and even art cars at Burning Man. Plus: Special Relativity, a one-act drama that answers the question: When Albert Einstein, Paul Robeson, and J. Edgar Hoover are raised from the dead at an anti-Bush rally, which one wears the dress? As with all Outspoken Author books, there is a deep interview and autobiography: at length, in-depth, no-holds-barred and all-bets off: an extended tour though the mind and work, the history and politics of our Outspoken Author. Surprises are promised.

 857.  When Miner's March

Blizzard, William C. Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

In the first half of the 20th century, strikes and Union battles, murders and frame-ups, were common in every industrial center in the U.S. But none of these episodes compared in scope to the West Virginia Mine Wars. The uprisings of coal miners that defined the Mine Wars of the 1920s were a direct result of the Draconian rule of the coal companies. The climax was the Battle of Blair Mountain, the largest open and armed rebellion in U.S. history. The Battle, and Union leader Bill Blizzards quest for justice, was only quelled when the U.S. Army brought guns, poison gas and aerial bombers to stop the 10,000 bandanna-clad miners who formed the spontaneous Red Neck Army. Over half a century ago, William C. Blizzard wrote the definitive insiders history of the Mine Wars and the resulting trial for treason of his father, the fearless leader of the Red Neck Army. Events dramatized in John Sayles film Matewan, and fictionalized in Denise Giardinas stirring novel Storming Heaven, are here recounted as they occurred. This is a people's history, complete with previously unpublished family photos and documents. If it brawls a little, and brags a little, and is angry more than a little, well, the people in this book were that way.

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 596 p. Contai 

A LITTLE HISTORY In 1983, David Blume wrote and hosted a 10-part how-to television series called Alcohol as Fuel for KQED, the San Francisco PBS affiliate. He also wrote the definitive how-to book on ethanol, Alcohol Can Be A Gas! , which was going to be sold on the air. The book was at the printer preparing to go to press, and the first airing of the television series in San Francisco was underway, to be followed by release to 140 PBS stations nationwide. Big Oil got wind of the project and convinced KQED to halt the printing and cancel the release of the series to the rest of PBS. Although there were lawsuits, KQED's oil-funded lawyers crushed Blume, and the series ended up locked in KQED's vault, while the rights to the book went back to Blume. The book sat on the shelf for the past 20 years. Beginning in 2003, Dave Blume set about updating the book in a big way. He raised money from individuals (not institutions or corporations) to fund his research into the current state of the art in alcohol fuels. He traveled extensively in both the US and Brazil, collecting and documenting innovations and the success of Brazil's alcohol fuel program. Four years of full-time work with a team of researchers has resulted in a completely new and greatly expanded version of the book. THE NEW BOOK Alcohol Can Be a Gas! (subtitled Fueling an Ethanol Revolution for the 21st Century) is an information-dense, highly readable, profusely illustrated manual, covering every aspect of alcohol fuel from history through crops, hands-on fuel production, and vehicle conversion. It's the first comprehensive book on small-to farm-scale alcohol production and use written in over 90 years. Internally divided into six books, the single volume contains 640 8.5 x 11 pages, with more than 500 illustrations, charts, and photos. It sports a 700-word glossary and a full index. It retains the original 1983 foreword by R. Buckminster Fuller. Alcohol Can Be A Gas! is a complete toolbox for farmers, green e

This new edition of "Theater of the Oppressed" brings a classic work on radical drama fully up to date and includes a new introduction by the author Augusto Boal. Boal restores theatre to its proper place as a popular form of communication and expression. He demonstrates the ways in which theatre has come to reflect ruling-class control, drawing on the theories of Aristotle and Machiavelli. He then shows the process reversed in Brechtian/Marxist poetics to the revolutionary potential of transforming the spectator into the actor. Throughout, Boal draws on his own experience in Latin America and illustrates his theory with practical examples.

 863.  West of Eden: Communes and Utopia in Northern California

Boal, Iain & Others 1604864273 Trade Paperback



In the shadow of the Vietnam War, a significant part of an entire generation refused their assigned roles in the American century. Some took their revolutionary politics to the streets, others decided simply to turn away, seeking to build another world together, outside the state and the market. West of Eden charts the remarkable flowering of communalism in the 60s and 70s, fueled by a radical rejection of the Cold War corporate deal, utopian visions of a peaceful green planet, the new technologies of sound and light, and the ancient arts of ecstatic release. The book focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area and its hinterlands, which have long been creative spaces for social experiment. Haight-Ashbury's gift economy—its free clinic, concerts, and street theatre—and Berkeley's liberated zones—Sproul Plaza, Telegraph Avenue, and People's Park—were embedded in a wider network of producer and consumer co-ops, food conspiracies, and collective schemes. Using memoir and flashbacks, oral history and archival sources, West of Eden explores the deep historical roots and the enduring, though often disavowed, legacies of the extraordinary pulse of radical energies that generated forms of collective life beyond the nuclear family and the world of private consumption, including the contradictions evident in such figures as the guru/predator or the hippie/entrepreneur. There are vivid portraits of life on the rural communes of Mendocino and Sonoma, and essays on the Black Panther communal households in Oakland, the latter-day Diggers of San Francisco, the Native American occupation of Alcatraz, the pioneers of live/work space for artists, and the Bucky dome as the iconic architectural form of the sixties. Due to the prevailing amnesia—partly imposed by official narratives, partly self-imposed in the aftermath of defeat—West of Eden is not only a necessary act of reclamation, helping to record the unwritten stories of the motley generation of communards and antinomians now passing, but is also intended as an offering to the coming generation who will find here, in the rubble of the twentieth century, a past they can use—indeed one they will need—in the passage from the privations of commodity capitalism to an ample life in common.

An activist launches an outlaw campaign to stop animal abusers for good, in a militant effort to spark a vegan revolution. In 1858, Abraham Lincoln stated that slavery would not end for at least a century. In 1859, abolitionist John Brown waged a war of weapons against slaveholders, shortening this time to seven years. He is now recorded in history as “the man who killed slavery”. Today, animals are killed by the billions for food and science, while activists who lawfully protest this cruelty are vilified and imprisoned as “terrorists”. In time, those responsible for this violence may very well reap what they have sown. This is the story of one such future. It is a story of a present-day John Brown, bringing the war against animals home to their abusers – a last recourse that may finally bring about a vegan nation.

 871.  Sacred Mushrooms and the Law

Boire, Richard Glen & McKenna, Terence (foreword) Paperback

Brand New 

SACRED MUSHROOMS were used to assist in visionary states as early as 4000 BC and in religious ceremonies long before the Aztec civilization. Many believe that the mushrooms talk to them, opening up channels of communication with animals and spirit entities. The First Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed each of us freedom of religious expression. Yet, for all practical purposes, the entheogenic experience?finding God within?has been outlawed in the United States, even among indigenous people. In Sacred Mushrooms & the Law attorney Richard Glen Boire, author of the best selling Marijuana Law , provides a much needed review of federal and state law (with cases) regarding the possession and use of sacred mushrooms. The law is an arcane mish-mash that renders nature an illicit drug-lab. Boire offers a fascinating discourse on cognitive liberty in which he compares the laws criminalizing the use of entheogenic mushrooms to a kind of Newspeak. In George Orwell?s dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, the Oceania government established Newspeak, a carefully crafted language designed by the government for the purpose of making unapproved modes of thought impossible. Our modern laws that criminalize sacred mushrooms effectively outlaw unapproved states of consciousness?including certain religious ecstatic experiences. Sacred Mushrooms & the Law reviews federal and state laws relative to psilocybin and psilocin mushrooms, tells how to determine punishments, reveals the profile postal workers use to identify a drug package, explores possible defenses, and much more.

 872.  Between Parentheses

Bolano, Roberto 0811218147 Hardcover

Brand New! 

Between Parenthesescollects most of the newspaper columns and articles Bolano wrote during the last five years of his life, as well as the texts of some of his speeches and talks and a few scattered prologues. Taken together, as the editor Ignacio Echevarra remarks in his introduction, they provide a personal cartography of the writer: the closest thing, among all his writings, to a kind of fragmented autobiography. Bolano's career as a nonfiction writer began in 1998, the year he became famous overnight forThe Savage Detectives; he was suddenly in demand for articles and speeches, and he took to this new vocation like a duck to water. Cantankerous, irreverent, and insufferably opinionated, Bolano also could be tender (about his family and favorite places) as well as a fierce advocate for his heroes (Borges, Cortzar, Parra) and his favorite contemporaries, whose books he read assiduously and promoted generously. A demanding critic, he declares that in his “ideal literary kitchen there lives a warrior”: he argues for courage, and especially for bravery in the face of failure. Between Parenthesesfully lives up to his own demands: ask for creativity from literary criticism, creativity at all levels.

 873.  The Third Reich

Bolano, Roberto 0374275629 Hardcover

Brand New! 

On vacation with his girlfriend, Ingeborg, the German war games champion Udo Berger returns to a small town on the Costa Brava where he spent the summers of his childhood. Soon they meet another vacationing German couple, Charly and Hanna, who introduce them to a band of locals—the Wolf, the Lamb, and El Quemado—and to the darker side of life in a resort town. Late one night, Charly disappears without a trace, and Udo’s well-ordered life is thrown into upheaval; while Ingeborg and Hanna return to their lives in Germany, he refuses to leave the hotel. Soon he and El Quemado are enmeshed in a round of Third Reich, Udo’s favorite World War II strategy game, and Udo discovers that the game’s consequences may be all too real. Written in 1989 and found among Roberto Bolaño’s papers after his death, The Third Reich is a stunning exploration of memory and violence. Reading this quick, visceral novel, we see a world-class writer coming into his own—and exploring for the first time the themes that would de?ne his masterpieces The Savage Detectives and 2666.

 876.  The Anarchist Tension

Bonanno, Alfred Elephant Editions 2004 

New 32 p. photocopied stapled pamphlet 

Anarchism is not a concept that can be locked up in a word like a gravestone. It is not a political theory. It is a way of conceiving life. And life, young or old as we may be, is not something definitive: it is a stake we must play day after day. When we wake up in the morning and put our feet on the ground we must have a good reason for getting up. If we don't it makes no difference whether we are anarchists or not. We might as well stay in bed and sleep. Writings about insurrectionary anarchism by Alfredo M. Bonanno, an Italian anarchist currently serving six years for charges related to the famous Marini Trial.

 883.  Deadly Harvest: The Intimate Relationship Between Our Health and Our Food

Bond, Geoff Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

With a record number of overweight people and an alarming increase in degenerative diseases, many of us find ourselves turning to meds or fad diets in an effort to drop excess pounds or recover our health. Since most drugs come with dangerous side effects, modifying our diet would seem relatively safe and simple. But what if our foods were doing more harm than good, and fad diets only made matters worse? Deadly Harvest is a groundbreaking book that carefully examines how the foods we eat today have little in common with the foods of our ancestors, and why this fact is so important to our health. It also offers a proven program to enhance health, combat illness, and improve longevity. Author Geoff Bond is a nutritional anthropologist who has for years investigated both foods of the past and our prehistoric eating habits. Using the latest scientific research and studies of primitive tribal lifestyles, Bond first explains the actual diet that our ancestors followed--a diet that was and still is in harmony with the human species. He then describes how the foods in today's diets disrupt our biochemistry and digestive system, leading to health disorders such as allergies, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity, and more. Most important, he explains the appropriate measures we can take to avoid these diseases--and even beat them back--through healthy eating. Contrary to what many people believe, the disorders that plague our society are not inevitable, but are the unfortunate result of modern dietary choices. Deadly Harvest not only explains why these problems have arisen, but offers a blueprint for improving our diet, our health, and our quality of life.

 886.  Social Ecology and Communalism

Bookchin, Murray AK Press 2007 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 118 p. Audien 

We are standing at a crucial crossroads. Not only does the age-old 'social question' concerning the exploitation of human labor remain unresolved, but the plundering of natural resources has reached a point where humanity is also forced to politically deal with an 'ecological question. ' Today, we have to make conscious choices about what direction society should take to properly meet these challenges...This is a highly accessible introduction to Social Ecology and Communalism, as it has been developed by one of the most exciting and pioneering thinkers of the twentieth century. Murray Bookchin's political philosophy suggests that the solution to the enormous social and ecological problems we face today fundamentally lies in the formation of a new citizenry, its empowerment through new political institutions, and a new political culture. Eirik Eiglad, from the Introduction These four essays, written between 1989 and 2002 and collected here for the first time in this volume, provide an excellent overview of Murray Bookchin's political philosophy. Murray Bookchin (1921 2006) was a life-long radical a trade unionist in the 1930s and 1940s, an innovative social theorist through the 1960s, a leading participant in the anti-nuclear wing of the Greens in the 1970s and 1980s, and co-founder of the Institute for Social Ecology. He was a prolific author and important thinker. Editor Eirik Eiglad has been involved with the ideas and politics of social ecology for more than fifteen years. He edits the journal Communalism.

Bookchin, Murray AK Press 2005 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 491 p. Audien 

Bookchin's crowning work. Now with a new preface by the author. The most systematic articulation of ideas. San Francisco Review of Books ...a confirmation of his [Bookchin's] status as a penetrating critic not only of the ways in which humankind is destroying itself, but of the ethical imperative to live better. The Village Voice Elegantly written, and recommended for a wide audience. Library Journal Bookchin offers a radical critique of this society, one I wanted very much to hear. The Nation His (Bookchin's) newest book is perhaps the most ambitious; the topic and the scope are tremendous. But his energy and the vigor of his intelligence are commensurately broad. Sierra The Ecology of Freedom is an eloquent, erudite, and highly ambitious work...Whatever one's perspective, one is likely to find in it much material for worthwhile reflection on the human condition. For many who are disillusioned with the reigning traditions of materialism, idealism, and dualism...the work will be of major significance. Telos The very notion of the domination of nature by man stems from the very real domination of human by human. With this succinct formulation, Murray Bookchin launches his most ambitious work, The Ecology of Freedom. An engaging and extremely readable book of breathtaking scope, its inspired synthesis of ecology, anthropology, and political theory traces our conflicting legacies of hierarchy and freedom, from the first emergence of human culture to today's globalized capitalism, constantly pointing the way to a sane, sustainable ecological future. On a college syllabus or in an activist's backpack, this book is indispensable reading for anyone who's tired of living in a world where everything is an exploitable resource. Murray Bookchin, cofounder of the Institute for Social Ecology, has been an active voice in the ecology and anarchist movements for more than forty years. The author of numerous books and articles, he lives in Burlington, Vermont.

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.

 897.  Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation

Bradbury, Ray & Hamilton, Tim Paperback

Brand New 

Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn 'em to ashes, then burn the ashes. For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume, this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous and books are forbidden. In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world's most unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. As could only occur with Bradbury's full cooperation in this authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art that uniquely captures Montag's awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature. Including an original foreword by Ray Bradbury and fully depicting the brilliance and force of his canonic and beloved masterwork, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is an exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature. Color. Since the original expounds the importance of valuing and preserving books and knowledge, adapting it into the comics form emphasizes the growth of the medium, as well as its potency across genres and subjects. -Publishers Weekly

New 175 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/ 

When a disaster or civil disturbance occurs, firefighters, police officers and paramedics quickly become overburdened with requests to handle simple emergencies--emergencies that every one of us should be able to handle as they occur. This book will give you the knowledge to handle nine basic crises that typically follow a disaster and motivate you to assist your family and neighbors should a large-scale catastrophe strike your community.

It is a crash course in the types of tasks normally handled by professional emergency-response personnel, written by a retired fire department captain with decades of experience training citizens in these skills. It is packed with hundreds of hands-on techniques and tips for disaster firefighting on your own, civilian search and rescue with light tools, vehicle rescue and firefighting, controlling utilities to prevent new problems, salvage and decontamination for home and business owners, and evacuation do's and don'ts. Just some of the specific skills you will learn include how to rescue people from building rubble and wrecked vehicles using only common tools, fight fires with an ordinary garden hose, shut off gas and electricity quickly and safely, set up emergency sanitation systems, seek refuge from an out-of-control fire, make contact with family and friends when standard communications are disrupted and much, much more. Throughout the book, the author shows you how to evaluate each situation rationally and confidently and decide when to handle the emergency yourself and when to call the authorities for help.

Bradley, Arthur T. 1463531109 Paperback

Brand New! 

Right out of the gate let me tell you what the book is NOT. It is not a book about fighting off hordes of flesh-eating zombies, should they ever rise from the grave. Nor will it describe how to survive a shipwreck by feasting on coconuts and roasted iguana.

This book IS designed to help your family prepare for more commonplace, yet still equally deadly ­disasters. The list is long and varied, and includes hurricanes, tornados, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, pandemics, financial collapse, floods, widespread blackouts, food shortages, airborne contamination, radiation exposure, and much more. The 430-page, 8″ x 10″ handbook is clear and easy to read with more than a hundred photos, illustrations, and worksheets. What makes this book different is that it focuses on practical steps that you and your family can take to become better prepared. At the end of your efforts, you will be rewarded with knowing that your family is far better prepared to handle real world challenges.

 900.  A Practical Treatise on Raw Materials and the Distillation and Rectification of Alcohol and the Preparation of Alcoholic Liquors, Liqueurs, Cordials & Bitters

Brannt, William T. 1559183179 Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

Chiefly edited from the German of Stammer, Elsner & Schubert. 1885. This is about making booze. It's not the only alcohol cookbook in our catalog, but this has something to offer the others don't. Chapters include alcohol, alcoholometry, raw materials, formation of alcohol, preparation of vinous mashes, preparation of alcohol from amylaceous raw materials (starch), distillation of the vinous mash, rectification and purification of spirit, preparation of liquors, preparation of liqueurs or cordials, receipts of liqueurs (what you know as recipes), and liqueurs prepared in the warm way. You get an early industrial handbook on booze. It's all about making that nasty stuff you so love from grapes, malt, potatoes, rice, corn, and more. I'm not sure I'd want to drink something I distilled myself, but I think my automobile or motorbike might like it when the gas stations are closed due to shortages. Here you get details on how rum was (and probably still is) distilled in the West Indies, how Scotch is made, corn whiskey, and dozens of other potions. And you get the most complete instructions I've ever seen on turning potatoes into alcohol. All the details, tricks and tips. Just about anyone should be able to grow corn or potatoes and turn it into white lightning. And! Here are the only instructions I've ever seen, five pages in fact, on turning wormwood into absinthe. Along with recommended still modifications. Never heard of it? Well, absinthe is so nasty that it's illegal almost everywhere, although I hear it is still bootlegged out of Switzerland. This liquor was consumed a hundred years ago in Europe (and at least one saloon in New Orleans) in astonishing quantities. The 160 proof liquor was drizzled through a slotted spoon holding a sugar cube into a glass with a little water and turned an emerald green. In addition to the alcohol, the drink contained a chemical related to the active ingredient in mirajuana. Parisian artists, among others, got REALLY messed up on the stuff. It caused so much damage that it was outlawed, and today the drink is associated with decadence. So if you really want to risk your life and limb, here are the secrets to making the stuff. If nothing else, turn your motorscooter into an alcoholic. Or make gin, vodka, or blackberry brandy for your self-righteous Aunt Abstemious. (She'll never know what hit her!). Need to make a few bucks on the side? Have you considered selling illegal whiskey? The Feds will get you. Don't say I didn't warn you. Great book on the secrets of making ethanol. Wood engravings of stills and other hardware. One of the best I've seen. Scarce book. You'll pay many times more to get an original copy. Get this reprint for your library. 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 softcover 330 pages.
