The United States has long exploited Earth's orbits to enhance security, generate wealth, and solidify its position as a world leader. America's ambivalence toward military activities in space, however, has the potential to undermine our future security. Many in Washington possess a peculiar regard for space and warfare. Some perceive space as a place to defend and fight for America's vital interests. Others -- whose voices are frequently dominant and manifested in public rhetoric, funded defense programs, international diplomacy, and treaty commitments -- look upon space as a preserve not to be despoiled by earthly strife. After forty years of discussion, the debate over America's role in space rages on. In light of the steady increase in international satellite activity for commercial and military purposes, American's vacillation on this issue could begin to pose a real threat to our national security. Steven Lambakis argues that this policy dysfunction will eventually manifest itself in diminished international political leverage, the forfeiture of technological advances, and the squandering of valuable financial resources. Lambakis reviews key political, military, and business developments in space over the past four decades. Emphasizing that we should not take our unobstructed and unlimited access to space for granted, he identifies potential space threats and policy flaws and proposes steps to meet national security demands for the twenty-first century.

In this extraordinary naturalist adventure saga, Alan Tennant, a passionate student of wildlife and of the peregrine falcon in particular, endeavours to radio-track the bird's transcontinental migration - something no one before him had ever attempted. At the time of his flight, in the mid-1980s, researchers were still unsure of the peregrine's transcontinental path: chicks hatched in the Arctic have hardly been taught how to fly and kill their food when they make their first migration, alone, following some mysterious internal call to go south. On The Wing, which begins on the windswept flats of the Texas barrier islands, ferries us across multiple continents, and is loaded with historical and scientific lore and rich characters. Chief among them is George Vose, the septugenarian Second World War vet and former stunt pilot who becomes Tennant's partner in falcon-chasing when they borrow some US Army radio-tracking equipment and set off after a bird Alan has managed to trap and tag with a feather-mounted transmitter. George, who trusts his instincts more than his instruments, is as obsessed with the mystery of flight as Tennant is and the book charts the story of their friendship. As they journey to the Arctic, following their first bird, and then way down South, through Mexico and into Belize, nearly losing their lives, running foul of the law (and, at times, at each other's throats) in the race to keep their birds in view and their rattletrap Cessna gassed up and running. But the falcons dominate this odyssey, these majestic birds - the icons of pharaohs, oriental emperors, and European nobility - whose fierce mien, speed at the kill and solitary habits have fired the human imagination for centuries. In this mesmerising narrative Alan Tennant offers us an unforgettable and moving tale that speaks to all our dreams of flight.

"The sky rained fire..." Thus began a decades long struggle for the people of ni'ewn. Deceived and enslaved by a cruel dictator, it seemed that all hope was lost; freedom and peace became ideals of a bygone era seemingly overnight. Until the stories began-stories of one who would come from across the stars to liberate them. Little did Jack Chase know that he had been chosen to lead this rebellion on an alien world for a people not so very different than his own. Haunted by otherworldy dreams since his childhood, dreams he believes to be connected somehow, Jack agrees to help the daring band of rebels when at last they find him. Far from home and facing not only enemy forces that are better trained and better armed but also a traitor within and doubts from other revolters, Jack soon realizes that things are much more complicated than he could have ever imagined. And if he fails, not only will his new friends be shattered, but he might also lose his own family.

Increasingly and forebodingly, contemporary artists are turning their attention to the subject of climate change, in poignant and often confrontational ways. The Edge of the Earth: Climate Change in Photography and Video explores recent and historic work in the context of present-day environmental concerns, considering the future consequences of the age of the anthropocene, and humanity’s harsh imprint on our planet. The Edge of the Earth accompanies a major exhibition at the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto, and includes works by pioneering and renowned artists such as Edward Burtynsky, Naoya Hatakeyama, Richard Misrach and Robert Rauschenberg; critical propositions on present situations by Chris Jordan, Gideon Mendel and Brandi Merolla; plus visionary works by Jean-Pierre Aub�, Adrien Missika, Evariste Richer and Andreas Rutkauskas. Photojournalism from the RIC’s Black Star Collection is also included, contextualising artistic reflections within half a century of historical reportage on the environment. Produced as a large-format book with high-quality reproductions throughout, The Edge of the Earth includes critical texts by B�n�dicte Ramade and TJ Demos, an interview with Lucy Lippard, and an introduction by Paul Roth. This critical overview offers the insight of artists into the present climate crisis, with the motive of prompting reconsideration of our increasingly perilous relationship to our planet. Published in partnership with Ryerson Image Centre.

Tyler Bane, a legendary rock idol, is dead-shot down outside his New York City apartment by a mysterious killer. The musician left behind a treasury of cryptic journals and oddities in an old house on Talbot's Bay, a city of secrets, where legends about strange sea creatures and enigmatic cat-beings have been passed down for generations. And the mysterious Hotel LaNeau stands like a darkened sentinel on the city's highest hill. Wanderers travel in olden caravans to worship the massive structure each winter. They are grifters, cons, thieves...and so much more, because that's when people go missing and when the darkest forces are said to claim their souls. Tyler's widow, Diana, returns to Talbot's Bay to bury her husband and to settle his estate. Plagued by agonizing headaches and fever dreams, she goes on to a trek through time, which unravels her husband's darkest deeds, and his deadly alignment with her father, Nicky Bernardo, a ruthless businessman. Will she be consumed by creatures that have roamed Talbot's Bay for centuries....or will she remain adrift forever in the turbulent threads of time? Black and white illustrations by the author are also included within this dark urban fantasy.
