The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years -- except Biff, the Messiah's best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in the divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work "reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more -- except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdala -- and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

Описание: "One July day four hundred years ago, Samuel de Champlain stepped out of a small boat at Quebec and began a great adventure." So begins Christopher Moore's riveting account of the life of the extraordinary, daring "father of New France." Samuel de Champlain helped found the first permanent French settlement in the New World; he established the village that eventually became the great city of Quebec; he was a skilled cartographer who gave us many of our first accurate maps of North America; he forged alliances with Native nations that laid the foundations for vast trading networks; and as governor, he set New France on the road to becoming a productive, self-sufficient, thriving colony. But Champlain was also a man who suffered his share of defeats and disappointments. That first permanent settlement was abandoned after a disastrous winter claimed the lives of half the colonists. His marriage to a child bride was unhappy and marked by long separations. Eventually Quebec had to be surrendered temporarily to the English in 1629. In this remarkable book, illustrated entirely with paintings, archival maps, and original artifacts, Christopher Moore brings to life this complex man and, through him, creates a portrait of Canada in its earliest days. Champlain is illustrated with archival maps and paintings. Additional artwork has been provided by Francis Back.

Описание: In 1864, thirty-three delegates from five provincial legislatures came to Quebec City to pursue the idea of uniting all the provinces of British North America. The American Civil War, not yet over, encouraged the small and barely defended provinces to consider uniting for mutual protection. But there were other factors: the rapid expansion of railways and steamships spurred visions of a continent-spanning new nation.
Federation, in principle, had been agreed on at the Charlottetown conference, but now it was time to debate the difficult issues of how a new nation would be formed. The delegates included John A. Macdonald, George Etienne-Cartier, and George Brown. Historian Christopher Moore demonstrates that Macdonald, the future prime minister, surprisingly was not the most significant player here, and Canada could have become a very different place.
The significance of this conference is played out in Canadian news each day. The main point of contention at the time was the issue of power--a strong federal body versus stronger provincial rights. Because of this conference, we have an elected House of Commons, an appointed Senate, a federal Parliament, and provincial legislatures. We have what amounts to a Canadian system of checks and balances. Did it work then, and does it work now?

Описание: Retailing is one of the biggest and most important sectors in today's economy. Graduates who are seeking a career in the sector will therefore require a solid knowledge of its core principles. The Principles of Retailing Second Edition is a topical, engaging and authoritative update of a hugely successful textbook by three leading experts in retail management designed to be a digestible introduction to retailing for management and marketing students. The previous edition was praised for the quality of its coverage, the clarity of its style and the strength of its sections on operation and supply chain issues such as buying and logistics, which are often neglected by other texts. This new edition has been comprehensively reworked in response to the rapid changes to the industry, including the growth of online retail and the subsequent decline of physical retail space and new technologies that improve customer experience and help track consumer behaviour. It also builds upon the authors' research over the last decade with new chapters on offshore sourcing and CSR and product management in addition to considerable revisions to existing chapters to highlight changes in online retailing and e-tail logistics, retail branding, retail security, internationalisation and the fashion supply chain. This edition will also be supported by a collection of online teaching materials to help tutors spend less time preparing and more time teaching.

The book is lavishly illustrated with more than 140 photographs and 110 original pieces by award-winning artist Bill Slavin.
