Siberian education : growing up in a criminal underworld by Nicolai Lilin( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in a small and tight-knit community of 'honest criminals' in a remote part of the former Soviet Union, this is a tale of an extreme childhood, exotic, violent and completely unique. Nicolai Lilin gained his 'education' as a member of the Siberian Urkas - a self-contained criminal fraternity - in a forgotten corner of Eastern Europe. It was a remarkable upbringing, defined by an elaborate set of rituals and strict codes of honour. Crime was all pervasive. The community had a deep distrust of outsiders, especially the police and state authorities, and split itself into 'honest' and 'dishonest' criminals. Even their youngest children were taught to understand violence and when it was appropriate to use it. By the age of six Nicolai had been given his first 'pike knife' by an uncle, and by the age of twelve he had been convicted of attempted murder

To their minds, the terrorists are warriors, striking a blow at the stifling conformity and propriety of everyday Italian life"--Page 4 of cover

Slow food nation : why our food should be good, clean, and fair by Carlo Petrini( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By now most of us are aware of the threats looming in the food world. The best-selling Fast Food Nation and other recent books have alerted us to such dangers as genetically modified organisms, food-borne diseases, and industrial farming. Now it is time for answers, and Slow Food Nation steps up to the challenge. Here the charismatic leader of the Slow Food movement, Carlo Petrini, outlines many different routes by which we may take back control of our food. The three central principles of the Slow Food plan are these: food must be sustainably produced in ways that are sensitive to the environment, those who produce the food must be fairly treated, and the food must be healthful and delicious. In his travels around the world as ambassador for Slow Food, Petrini has witnessed firsthand the many ways that native peoples are feeding themselves without making use of the harmful methods of the industrial complex. He relates the wisdom to be gleaned from local cultures in such varied places as Mongolia, Chiapas, Sri Lanka, and Puglia. Amidst our crisis, it is critical that Americans look for insight from other cultures around the world and begin to build a new and better way of eating in our communities here
The triumph of the Baroque : architecture in Europe, 1600-1750 by Henry A Millon( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The baroque style of architecture rose up from the Mannerism of the turn of the seventeenth century, and evolved into the lighter rococo around 1750. At its height, the baroque encompassed all the arts, and the style was freighted with the message of the Counter-Reformation."--BOOK JACKET. "This catalogue explores every facet of baroque architecture in Europe. An international team of scholars examines such subjects as the political and religious use of architecture, the birth of the baroque in Rome, landscape, fantasies, and the education of the architect. The second part of the book, a catalogue of works exhibited, illustrates the types of baroque construction: villas and chateaux, military architecture, royal palaces, and gardens."--Jacket
