Summary

Somewhere in this great nation is Skin Horse, a top-secret government agency in charge of providing aid to America's nonhuman citizenry.  Perpetually overworked and underpaid, these dedicated civil servants soldier on with a dedication exceeded only by their respective passions for heavy rifles, stylish footwear, and good sturdy squeaky toys.  They're not our country's best, nor our country's brightest, but to all the lost and lonely creations of misguided science wandering the wild places of this country, they are a beacon of minimum-wage hope.  This is one of their stories.

    As we find ourselves at the cusp of an economic downturn, there has been a clear reinvigoration of Keynesian economics as governments are attempting to stimulate the market through public funds. Forming his economic theories in the wake of the Great Depression, John Maynard Keynes argued that a healthy economy depended on the total spending of consumers, business investors and, most importantly, governments too. Keynes formulated that governments should take control of the economy in the short term, rather than relying on the market, because, as he eloquently put it 'in the long run, we are all dead'. This graphic guide is the ideal introduction to one of the most influential economists of the 20th century, at a time when his theories may be crucial to our economic survival. Through a deft mixture of words and images, "Introducing Keynes" is a timely, accessible and enjoyable read.

    Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New                 Adventures              
    In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey                 protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the                 weapons of wisdom, wit, and a bit of trickery. These adventures                 combine Jewish and American folklore by creatively retelling                 comic Jewish folktales and setting them loose on the western                 frontier of the 1870s.              
    As his fame grows throughout the Rocky                 Mountains, Rabbi Harvey meets new characters—including                 the luckless gold miner Abigail—and faces a slew of new                 challenges. He encounters the return of “Big Milt”                 and Wolfie Wasserman (the most feared father-and-son outlaw                 team east of Nevada), and investigates another bold crime by                 the sweet-faced Bad Bubbe. And, as ever, the Rabbi is the quickest draw in the West—when it comes to pulling out bits of Talmudic                 insight to fit any occasion, that is. Like any great collection                 of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and                 timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially,                 make you laugh.

    Artist-drawn humorous postcards were growing considerably in popularity at the start of the 20th century. When war broke out in 1914 trade in them soared as the government utilised them as a widespread means of communication, to bolster morale, stiffen resolve and lift up the spirits in the field, at sea and on the home front from 1914 to 1919.  
      
    They were also an excellent tool for recording and commenting on military and civilian events as they unfolded. Although the conflict was no laughing matter, humour helped to bring people together and feel stronger during a time of suffering; these postcards helped achieved this and they are therefore considered as significant historical documents.  
      
    Pack Up Your Troubles is the first book of this kind to focus exclusively on the impact of British humour in the art of the picture postcards of World War One, both in the field and on the home front. The book is divided into themed chapters of the era, from Camp Life and Training to The Western Front through to Women at War and many more in between. Each section shows approximately 20 postcards within that theme, each with an explanatory caption. 
     
    This book would be an ideal gift for anyone with an interest in war and military history, art and design, cartoons,  and anyone who enjoys humour and laughing.
