The A.B.C. Of The Rock Garden And Pool - PREFACE - YEARS ago I was asked to write a book on Rock Gardens and another on Garden Pools and I did so. I am glad to say they both sold well but then the 1939 War came and it proved impossible to reprint them.

In Europe, particularly in England, the rock garden is an established institution with a distinct following. The English works on the subject alone form a considerable bibliography. On this side of the Atlantic, the rock garden is so little understood that it is an almost unconsidered factor in the beautifying of the home grounds.
The Red Rockets' Glare is the first academic study on the birth of the Soviet space program and one of the first social histories of Soviet science. Based on many years of archival research, the book situates the birth of cosmic enthusiasm within the social and cultural upheavals of Russian and Soviet history. Asif A. Siddiqi frames the origins of Sputnik by bridging imagination with engineering - seeing them not as dialectic, discrete, and sequential but as mutable, intertwined, and concurrent. Imagination and engineering not only fed each other but were also co-produced by key actors who maintained a delicate line between secret work on rockets (which interested the military) and public prognostications on the cosmos (which captivated the populace). Sputnik, he argues, was the outcome of both large-scale state imperatives to harness science and technology and populist phenomena that frequently owed little to the whims and needs of the state apparatus.
LISA ACOR LAUREL knows firsthand the necessity of letting go of relationships that aren't working-letting go and moving on to mystery, adventure, and fulfillment. In this memoir, she narrates her escape from an abusive relationship and how she found healing and self-discovery through her faith and trust in God.
"Love in the Gardens of Macantar" delivers a series of personal journal entries chronicling Laurel's journey from codependency, addiction, self-pity, and blame to a life of happiness, contentment, and taking responsibility for her actions. It captures her progress through one year of healing, and it sheds light on Laurel's inner-self, the great significance of her journey, and how she found her true passion in gardening.
Inspiring and uplifting, Laurel's testimony offers hope for a prosperous, productive, and fulfilling life after leaving an abusive relationship. Realizing that happiness is not a luxury, it is a responsibility, "Love in the Gardens of Macantar" shows there is a new beginning after the end.
