The Moé Manifesto: An Insider's Look at the Worlds of Manga, Anime, and Gaming

Characters like Suzumiya Haruhi have cult followings, and fans of Hatsune Miku, a "virtual idol", have made her one of the biggest stars in Japan today. Moé is one of the driving forces behind the success of Japanese anime and manga throughout the world.

I'm So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had on : A Narrative

I'm So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had on : A Narrative
Queen, Khadijah

"Part 1980s and 1990s nostalgia, part exuberant storytelling, I'm So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had On turns a sharply humorous magnifying glass onto gendered interactions in daily life, framed primarily by random celebrity encounters in Los Angeles. Far from a narrative of fame-chasing or conceit, however, I'm So Fine breathlessly addresses what it means for a woman to fight for dignity and survival in an often hostile environment, to come into her own power as she decides what she wants for herself '& mostly gets its every fineness.'"--Author's website.

Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines

Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines
Fleischman, Paul

"We're living in an aha moment. Take 250 years of human ingenuity. Add abundant fossil fuels. The result: a population and lifestyle never seen before. The downsides weren't visible for centuries, but now they are. Suddenly everything needs rethinking - suburbs, cars, fast food, cheap prices. It's a changed world. This book explains it. Using politics, psychology, and history for attitude, Eyes Wide Open shows how to see the principles driving events and attitudes, from vested interests to denial to big-country syndrome. Here's the briefing you need to comprehend the twenty-first century"--Page [4] of cover.
