    Anthropology
    Anthropology 1ewas the first introductory anthropology text to integrate a four-field perspective and address topics such as research methods, ethics, theory, globalization, gender, race and ethnicity throughout. Continuing with this tradition in Anthropology 2e, author Barbara Miller is joined by three of the brightest new scholars in archaeology and biological anthropology to provide complete and current coverage of each of the four fields of anthropology. It incorporates up-to-date research and the latest discoveries and their impact on the “classics” in anthropology. It illuminates the basics of the four fields and demonstrates how they are connected. Through carefully chosen examples and exercises it shows how anthropology is relevant to today's world.  Beautifully illustrated, it maximizes the effectiveness of the art program by building pedagogy into the captions of photos, figures, tables and maps. It is an original and unique text, which provides students with the most faithful and holistic representation of anthropology available today.

    Yoga: Discipline of Freedom

    Yoga: Discipline of Freedom
    The Yoga Sutra Attributed to Patanjali
    Dating from about the third century A.D., the Yoga Sutra distills the essence of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga into fewer than two hundred brief aphorisms. It is the core text for any study of meditative practice, revered for centuries for its brilliant analysis of mental states and of the process by which inner liberation is achieved. Yet its difficulties are legendary, and until now, no translation has made it fully accessible. This new translation, hailed by Yoga Journal for its "unsurpassed readability," is by one of the leading Sanskrit scholars of our time, whose Bhagavad Gita has become a recognized classic. It includes an introduction to the philosophy and psychology underlying the Yoga Sutra, the full text with explanatory commentary, and a glossary of key terms in Sanskrit and English.

    Music Master
    Leighton Stone, Earl of Longbridge, is used to danger. His years as a code breaker in Wellington's army have been filled with it, but all he wants at the end of the Peninsular War is to return to his estate and marry his childhood sweetheart, Maddie Westlake. Maddie is not a typical parson's daughter. She is weary of having to scheme against her parsimonious father to take care of Leighton's tenants, and she is tired of being taken for granted. When Leighton finally tracks her to the city of Bath he realizes he must woo her. Since he never trusted her with his secrets she does not trust him with her future. Music and memories draw the pair together while secret codes and conniving relatives almost split this engaging couple. Then they are drawn into a bizarre spy plot that only Maddie can solve.

He is trying to create the perfect woman with words since he has never met her until he encounters Grace. Brand and Grace are both looking for friendship and intellectual stimulation but find far more in each other. Yet Brand is afraid to even mention marriage since Grace has been hurt in the past by managing men and unwanted offers. His heart has been bruised by fortune hunters as well. A murder at the Parthenon and a disaster backstage prompts them to sacrifice their reputations to save the play and bind their two broken hearts together forever.
