Butterflies of Suriname [OP]
Hajo B.P.E Gernaat
Borgesius G. Beckles
Tinde van Andel
"This is truly an extraordinary book! I have seen few regional guides on butterflies that are packed so full of information and so beautifully illustrated. Color images grace nearly every page, and the various tables and color plates makes information easy to access. Related sections withing the book
are even cross referenced, making the book easier to use.... This volume goes far above and beyond most introductory texts on butterflies, and can easily be used as an introductory text anywhere in the neotropics. It is no exaggeration to say this is on of the finest books on butterflies I've seen published in recent years. The authors are to be congratulated on their impressive accomplishment, and thanked for their generous contribution."

The United Nations of the Future
Willem van Genugten
"There is no shortage of books criticizing the UN. This well-written, carefully documented book offers more than that. The contributors show their confidence in the future of the UN to act as a "center" for turning globalization into the famous "four freedoms" idealized by Franklin D. Roosevelt for everyone
everywhere in the world. The book offers succinct discussions about Roosevelt's "four freedoms" speech and its connection to the original UN charter of 1945. the book's main focus is on the areas of human security, human development, and problems dealing with individuals rather than traditional concentration on states. The authors effectively argue that the UN has played and should play a central role in human development, human security, and human rights for all. They argue that the UN is an invaluable institution, necessary in a world full of conflicts and challenges to human development. The book is excellent and tightly focused; it contains extensive footnotes, 12 annexes, and a selected bibliography. It is on of the most thoughtful books this reviewer has read in a decade.

"The ancients embraced silver just as much as gold for their decorative needs.
Desert Silver: Nomadic and Traditional Silver Jewelry from the Middle East and North Africa
investigates the styles used throughout the southern half of the Mediterranean sea through some of Humanity's oldest civilizations.
This jewelry proves to have practical value and comfort for the peoples of the desert life that managed to tell their status without being too clunky.
is a must for anyone with a taste for the ancient classical styles of history.
