Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises
In the 'Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises', award-winning author and whale researcher Erich Hoyt takes readers into the field for an intimate encounter with some 90 species of cetaceans that make their homes in the world's oceans. Drawing on decades of firsthand experience and a comprehensive familiarity with the current revolution in cetacean studies, Hoyt provides unique insights into the life histories of these compelling marine mammals. Join the author and his fellow researchers as they share their discoveries about cetacean biology and behaviour, from the physical differences and adaptations among the baleen and toothed whales to their highly intelligent hunting and feeding methods. Learn about courtship and mating practices, family relationships and the lifelong bonds among some family members. Meet the symphonic composer of the whale world - the humpback whale, whose complex 30-minute songs reverberate across the liquid universe of the ocean. Find out how some cetaceans survive deep diving and negotiate lengthy migrations across oceans. Hoyt's latest book is not only a fascinating compilation of the latest data on cetaceans but an impassioned argument for the ongoing need for international protection of at-risk populations and their increasingly damaged habitat. Join the discussion about how best to make a future for these remarkable marine creatures. 'Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises' includes: * detailed profiles of some 90 current species of cetaceans; * a report on the newly discovered species in the genus Berardius, a small black form related to the Baird's beaked whale; * fascinating sidebars that bring to life cetacean society and culture; * an enlightening discussion of the differences between dolphins and porpoises; * new information on the history and impact of whaling; * illustrations of each species by renowned artist Uko Gorter; * colour photographs by world-famous marine photographer Brandon Cole, among others.

With the recent declassification of secret documents new light has been shed on old mysteries. For example, we now know that what might be termed the JFK assassination conspiracy industry was deliberately fueled and manipulated by the KGB so as to distract the CIA and undermine confidence in successive U.S. administrations. Also, new evidence continues to emerge of Vladimir Putin's commitment to the extra-judicial elimination of 'extremists' overseas, as legitimized by the Duma in July 2006. Controversially, the legislation included one definition of extremists as 'those slandering the individual occupying the post of president of the Russian Federation . The Encyclopedia of Political Assassinations contains a chronology, an introduction, and appendixes. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on assassinations, intelligence agencies, politics and foreign relations.

The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball
More than any other sport, baseball has developed its own niche in America's culture and psyche. Some researchers spend years on detailed statistical analyses of minute parts of the game, while others wax poetic about its players and plays. Many trace the beginnings of the civil rights movement in part to the Major Leagues' decision to integrate, and the words and phrases of the game (for example, pinch-hitter and out in left field) have become common in our everyday language. From AARON, HENRY onward, this book covers all of what might be called the cultural aspects of baseball (as opposed to the number-rich statistical information so widely available elsewhere). Biographical sketches of all Hall of Fame players, owners, executives and umpires, as well as many of the sportswriters and broadcasters who have won the Spink and Frick awards, join entries for teams, owners, commissioners and league presidents. Advertising, agents, drafts, illegal substances, minor leagues, oldest players, perfect games, retired uniform numbers, superstitions, tripleheaders, and youngest players are among the thousands of entries herein. Most entries open with a topical quote and conclude with a brief bibliography of sources for further research. The whole work is exhaustively indexed and includes 119 photographs.
