In Fire Birds--Valuing Natural Wildfires and Burned Forests, award-winning science author Sneed B. Collard III challenges society's negative views toward natural forest fires. By focusing on the research of biologist Richard Hutto, Collard reveals the complex relationships between fire and thriving plant and animal communities. The book especially focuses on the heavy use of burned forests by dozens of bird species--and debunks the idea that burned forests are worthless wastelands.
Besides delivering a powerful environmental message, Fire Birds couldn't be more timely. With record numbers of acres burning every year, pressure to suppress wildfires and "salvage log" burned forests has never been greater. Stunning photographs and clear text deliver the message that recent fire policies have been backfiring badly.
Guatemala is a society of fear. Whilst events in Chile have outraged international opinion, the widespread political violence in Guatemala has gone unnoticed. Over the past ten years there have been an estimated 20,000 political killings, a death toll as high as that inflicted by the savage earthquake which struck the country in 1976. Those who protest against the country's unjust social and economic system and take a stand against the government and land-oqning elite simply 'disappear' or their bodies are found horribly mutilated, the victims of right-wing death squads whose activities are officially condoned. Guatemala: Unnatural Disaster looks behind the immediate effects of the earthquake to the nature of the sociey which was struck by it. It documents the violations of human rights and analyses the grossly inegalitarian structures of Guatemalan society which have given rise to such violence, dealing with the repression of the trade union and peasant movements. The report also critically examines current initiatives to link foreign aid with human rights issues and looks at the questions to be faced if international pressure is to have any effect on one of the most repressive countries in contemporary Latin America.

Dante's putative subject is Beatrice/Love--but the Vita Nuova is really an exercise in poetry: Dante sets the emotional scene for a poem, then he writes the poem, then he explains the poem's structure, part by part. The work shows what we recognize today as a literary attitude, a critical stance on a piece of writing. His precision in thinking about how thoughts ought to be organized may seem pedantic, yet this is the mind that later engaged the question of what Hell might look like, and why and how, not from a religious point of view but as an extended imaginative venture.
