The dining-room table is the seat of hospitality, and thie entire volume is devoted to the art of the table. How big should a dining table be? How do drop-leaves work, and are there better ways to make the top expand? How about plans for interesting coffee tables, a lion's paw pedestal table, trestle tables? How does a table become a desk, with pigeon-holes or a roll-top?

The growing demand for concise and factual information about the history and culture of Islam has now been met with the "Islamic Desk Reference," This handy one-volume work contains a condensation of the subject-matter of "The Encyclopaedia of Islam," the most prestigious and valuable reference work for Islamic studies published this century. In a brief, orderly and intelligible form the "Islamic Desk Reference" provides thus a unique and valuable quick reference tool for those interested in the religion, the believers and the countries of the Islamic world. All entries in the "Islamic Desk Reference" are given in English. Thus, names of Arabic origin which in the West were corrupted to another spelling, e.g. Ibn Sina to Avicenna, al-Kuhl to alcohol, are found under the latter term. The "Islamic Desk Reference" contains maps, diagrams and genealogical tables for easy reference, and illustrations.

There have been countless crime dramas written about murder mysteries, but none that delve into the life behind the shield of New York's finest. It's New York City, modern day, and things aren't quite the way they used to be. The Squad Room follows Captain William "Bill" Morrison, a man haunted by his own demons. His son is dead, gunned down in the line of duty, leaving Bill a haunted shell. Morose, a borderline alcoholic, he finds a second family among the members of his task force, the only men and women as committed to the brotherhood as he is. And with his marriage in shambles, solace comes in the arms of a dream girl, the tortured, but empathetic and caring Claudia. You may believe you know what evil looks like, but The Squad Room shows you that the face of unspeakable horror can come in many forms. A serial killer is terrorizing New York City, targeting young, helpless women. Morrison and his team are racing against time to identify and bring justice to the murderer. Meanwhile, the task force runs up against villains inside the system: a Chief and a Detective who got where they are by political maneuvering, rather than skill and merit. Here, the men and women of the badge form tight bonds that can never be understood by outsiders. Every day, the police sacrifice so much of themselves to protect an unknowing public. This is their story, born from the true life experience of the authors. Written by two actual police chiefs, The Squad Room gives you a genuine insider's view of a detective squad room in the NYPD and shows you what it is like to handle real life and death situations every day. It brings a human face to the multitude of public servants, the nameless legion we only read about in the tabloids when something horrific happens. You will never look at the police the same way again.

Author: Henry Petroski
Category: Literary Criticism
From the author of the highly praised The Pencil and The Evolution of Useful Things comes another captivating history of the seemingly mundane: the book and its storage. Most of us take for granted that our books are vertical on our shelves with the spines facing out, but Henry Petroski, inveterately curious engineer, didn't. As a result, readers are guided along the astonishing evolution from papyrus scrolls boxed at Alexandria to upright books shelved at the Library of Congress. Unimpeachably researched, enviably written, and charmed with anecdotes from Seneca to Samuel Pepys to a nineteenth-century bibliophile who had to climb over his books to get into bed, The Book on the Bookshelf is indispensable for anyone who loves books.
