Made when the director was almost 80, Robert Bresson's "L'Argent" (1983) is a study of murder and motive adapted from Tolstoy. The author compares "L'Argent" to Bresson's other work and places the film at the crossroads of recent cinema trends - those of the vigilante and serial killer films.

Since 1990, the number of mandated vaccines has increased dramatically. Today, a fully vaccinated child will have received nearly three dozen vaccinations between birth and age six. Along with the increase in number has come a growing wave of concern among parents about the unintended side effects of vaccines. In Vaccine, Mark A. Largent explains the history of the debate and identifies issues that parents, pediatricians, politicians, and public health officials must address. Nearly 40% of American parents report that they delay or refuse a recommended vaccine for their children. Despite assurances from every mainstream scientific and medical institution, parents continue to be haunted by the question of whether vaccines cause autism. In response, health officials herald vaccines as both safe and vital to the public's health and put programs and regulations in place to encourage parents to follow the recommended vaccine schedule. For Largent, the vaccine-autism debate obscures a constellation of concerns held by many parents, including anxiety about the number of vaccines required (including some for diseases that children are unlikely ever to encounter), unhappiness about the rigorous schedule of vaccines during well-baby visits, and fear of potential side effects, some of them serious and even life-threatening. This book disentangles competing claims, opens the controversy for critical reflection, and provides recommendations for moving forward. -- Jonathan D. Moreno, Ph.D., Center for Bioethics, University of Pennsylvania, and author of The Body Politic: The Battle over Science in America

Cooper Madison was the best pitcher in baseball after being drafted number one overall in 1996 from the small Gulf Coast town of Pass Christian, Mississippi. One year after announcing his sudden and shocking retirement, he finds himself seeking anonymity in Cleveland, Ohio. Cara Knox is the youngest sibling to three older brothers. After a tragic work accident to her closest relative, she has built up a tough exterior as she begins her final year of college at Cleveland State University. Jason Knox, Cara's oldest brother, is the lead detective on Cleveland's Edgewater Park Killer case. After months without a suspect, he is feeling the heat from his media-hungry chief. Serendipity intervenes, and all three learn that perception and reality are paths that rarely ever intersect.

From the Publisher: Most closely associated today with the Nazis and World War II atrocities, eugenics is sometimes described as a government-orchestrated breeding program, other times as a pseudo-science, and often as the first step leading to genocide. Less frequently is it depicted as a movement having links to America-a nation that has historically prided itself for its scientific rationality. But eugenics does have a history in the United States-a history that is largely the story of biologist Charles Davenport. Davenport, who led the Eugenics Records Office in the late nineteenth century, provided physicians, social scientists, and lawmakers with the scientific data and authority that enabled them to coercively sterilize men and women who were thought to be socially deviant, unfit to pass on their genes, and unable to raise healthy children. Moreover, Mark A. Largent shows how even in modern times, remnants of eugenics philosophies persist in this country as certain public figures advocate a brand of birth control-such as progesterone shots for male criminals-that are only steps away from the castrations that were once performed.

One of the most influential directors in the history of French cinema, Robert Bresson never strayed from his iconoclastic ways, insisting on the use of nonprofessional actors, shunning the oadvanceso of Cinerama and CinemaScope (and the work of most of his predecessors and peers), mincing no words about the damaging influence of capitalism and the studio system on the still-developing-in his view-art of film. Organized chronologically, this collection of interviews and testimonials reveals the development of Bresson's thought over the course of forty years, punctuated by recurring mantras such as oSound cinema invented silence,o oCharacters don't make a film; a film makes its characters,o oCinema is a form of writing,o and (paraphrased from the Bible) oEvery idle word shall be counted.o His integrity and originality earned him the respect of younger innovators, notably the filmmakers of the French New Wave, whose importance he recognized from the start. Perhaps the most striking cumulative effect of this palimpsest of self-interpretation is the revelation, beneath the apparently hyper-controlled aesthetic of Bresson's films, of a near-religious belief in the value of intuition, not only that of the creator but that of the general public, which he claims to deeply respect- oPeople are always ready to feel before they understand. And that's how it should be.o
