Watchin' The Detective

RRP $18.99

Have you ever wanted to go to a mystery dinner theater where the audience has to figure out whodunit? That is where two lovers meet in this humorous and sexy romance novel. Isabella, a librarian in her early thirties, goes with her friends to a performance where an actual murder takes place. She falls in love with the handsome investigating detective, who bears a striking resemblance to Don Draper in Mad Men, and gets herself mixed up with some dangerous people when she goes undercover-in spite of his warnings-to help him solve the crime. This book is not just "chick lit": written by a man and a woman, it appeals to both sexes. For readers 18 years old and above.


Shakespeare's Watch

RRP $635.99

William Shakespeare has gotten a bum rap from scholars on his use of time and location in his plays. Almost from the first, commentators determined that the Bard was indifferent to such mundane matters. With near glee, early critics pointed at apparent blunders like clocks appearing in Julius Caesar or the two gentlemen of Verona sailing to landlocked Milan. Yet, as any thespian knows, considerations of place and time are primary building blocks of their art. In Shakespeare's Watch: A Guide to Time and Location in the Plays, Buzz Podewell provides the location and designates the time of each scene in the playwright's comedies, tragedies, and histories. Working scene-by-scene, Podewell provides a brief synopsis of the action to first situate the story. A discussion of the location of each scene and its significance to the action follows, along with a designation of the time of the action (i.e. the play's time scheme) and the time-intervals between scenes. Additionally, both real and conjectural maps of the plays are included to give a sense of the geographical scope of each play. When relevant, maps of the actual historical battles referred to in the texts are also provided. Actors, designers, directors, scholars, and students will all find value in this unique and valuable resource.


Small Town And Rural Economic Development

RRP $402.99

Similar to large cities, rural towns have undergone dramatic change since mid-century. The decline in retailing, changes in manufacturing, and jobs moving abroad have had a tremendous impact. Yet while rural and industrial areas have similar concerns about adjusting to a changing economy, successful urban strategies cannot be blindly transferred to rural areas. Nor can rural areas be considered homogeneous. They differ in ethnic makeup, industrial structure, topography, and natural and human resources. Appreciating the diversity of rural areas, this book presents case studies from different industries, regions, and cultures, providing examples of the activity in small town and rural development, and reflecting on how these strategies might be pursued elsewhere. This collection provides examples of communities that have attempted to affect their future. Telling the stories of small towns that do not attract the attention of national media, this book celebrates the success, creativity, and vision of rural residents. Also included are examples of less effective rural development initiatives, which can be lessons to analyze and avoid mistakes. Ultimately, what is best in small town and rural development is the result of community engagement. This volume will help people to begin, or strengthen, that process of engagement.
