    The scientific and social history surrounding the 1880 incident of a foul odor in Paris and the development of public health culture that followed. 
     
    Late in the summer of 1880, a wave of odors enveloped large portions of Paris. As the stench lingered, outraged residents feared that the foul air would breed an epidemic. Fifteen years later—when the City of Light was in the grips of another Great Stink—the public conversation about health and disease had changed dramatically. Parisians held their noses and protested, but this time few feared that the odors would spread disease. 
     
    Historian David S. Barnes examines the birth of a new microbe-centered science of public health during the 1880s and 1890s, when the germ theory of disease burst into public consciousness. Tracing a series of developments in French science, medicine, politics, and culture, Barnes reveals how the science and practice of public health changed during the heyday of the Bacteriological Revolution. 
     
    Despite its many innovations, however, the new science of germs did not entirely sweep away the older “sanitarian” view of public health. The longstanding conviction that disease could be traced to filthy people, places, and substances remained strong, even as it was translated into the language of bacteriology. Ultimately, the attitudes of physicians and the French public were shaped by political struggles between republicans and the clergy, by aggressive efforts to educate and “civilize” the peasantry, and by long-term shifts in the public’s ability to tolerate the odor of bodily substances. 
     
     
     
    “A well-developed study in medically related social history, it tells an intriguing tale and prompts us to ask how our own cultural contexts affect our views and actions regarding environmental and infectious scourges here and now.” —New England Journal of Medicine 
     
    “Both a captivating story and a sophisticated historical study. Kudos to Barnes for this valuable and insightful book that both physicians and historians will enjoy.” —Journal of the American Medical Association

    Bestselling author and father of the Ancient Alien Theory Erich von Däniken explores what drove ancient humans to build city-sized places underground around the world and its connection to conflicts in the sky.War of the Gods examines ancient scriptures from India, Siberia, Tahiti, and many other regions of the world independently on reports of battles in the stars. Weapons of unimaginable destructive power were used in the battle. Use of one of these weapons destroyed a planet completely.   Traditions from all over the world depict the gruesome effects of the battle in space. Many ancient stories speak of it raining fire from the sky for years. The people of the time tried to protect themselves from this, and thus created more testimonies that prove the star war and contact with beings from other planets.   With impressive examples von Däniken illustrates some of the numerous cities that were dug underground as safe harbors from the destructive boulders. Miles and miles of underground passageways have been discovered around the world as they made space for villages and entire cities.   To end the book, von Däniken presents his newest discoveries of an event that can only be described as shocking: In 2017, the author was informed that strange mummified creatures were found near the Peruvian village of Nazca. They lived several thousand years, had three fingers and three toes, and had exceptionally long heads. One of the mummies, apparently several thousand years ago, had been implanted with a metal plate under the skin. Scientists agree: These creatures are not from Earth!

    An engaging conversation with our most respected public intellectual around how a global Green New Deal has the potential to save humanity and the planetThe environmental crisis under way is unique in human history. It is a true existential crisis. Those alive today will decide the fate of humanity. Meanwhile, the leaders of the most powerful state in human history are dedicating themselves with passion to destroying the prospects for organized human life. At the same time, there is a solution at hand, which is the Green New Deal. Putting meat on the bones of the Green New Deal starts with a single simple idea: we have to absolutely stop burning fossil fuels to produce energy within the next thirty years at most; and we have to do this in a way that also supports rising living standards and expanding opportunities for working people and the poor throughout the world. This version of a Green New Deal program is, in fact, entirely realistic in terms of its purely economic and technical features. The real question is whether it is politically feasible. Chomsky and Pollin examine how we can build the political force to make a global Green New Deal a reality.

    New: removable dosage table 
    
    The publication of Homeopathy for Plants heralded the start of a truly green revolution. The book has sold over 76.000 copies and been translated into many different languages. 
    
    It’s a handy guide to the most common plant diseases, pests and types of damage with information on how to treat your plants with homeopathy. Christiane Maute® is one of the pioneers who has been using homeopathy on ornamental and edible plants for many years. 
    
    Whether leaf spot on roses, brown rot on tomatoes, fire blight on fruit trees, aphids, leaf curl, cancer, mildew, monilia fruit rot, snail and slug damage, black spot or just poor growth – Ms Maute explains the tried-and-tested remedies for the most common diseases. 
    
    Clear and precise instructions are also given for the layperson to treat plants for the effects of frost, hail, damage, wounds following pruning of trees or bushes, heat damage and the effects of repotting.
    
    Most diseases are illustrated with pictures, making it easy for you to recognise the disease and quickly find the correct remedy. The recommendations on dosage and application have been revised and are very clearly described with a handy removable table. A compact materia medica of the remedies rounds off the book. 
    
    The numerous real-life examples added for this comprehensively updated edition demonstrate that homeopathy for plants has now come of age. The chapter on houseplants covers the homeopathic treatment of typical problems such as fungal infestation, temperature damage or waterlogging. 
    
    A great guidebook specially for amateur gardeners which will surely convince even those unfamiliar with homeopathy to give it a go!
    
    Sets of Remedy Preparations Mentioned in the Book by Christiane Maute
    
    "Treating plants with homeopathy requires time and patience, but it is well worth it, as indicated by its effects: aphids literally fall from the leaves. After just a few hours there were only a few aphids remaining." - from Demeter Rundbrief, April, 2011
    
    "It is often said that one must believe in Homeopathy for it to work. As plants cannot do that, there must be something real at work here." - from the article 'Globuli für den Garten', Country, April 2011

    A thorough history of the weapons and tools our prehistoric ancestors used to survive, this book reveals a world that will fascinate anyone interested in outdoor skills, ancient weapons, or anthropology.

    Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of drawings, including images of the tools themselves as well as microscopic details of the flint and other stones from which they were crafted, this is a rare look into mankind's distant—yet not-so-distant—past.
