Cave Dwellers from the Author: Richard Grant. A gripping novel of historical espionage, about an eleventh-hour attempt by members of the German elite to unseat Adolf Hitler, and its endlessly complex consequences. In late 1937, the young lieutenant Oskar Langweil is recruited to this cause while attending a party at the lavish home of a baroness. A high-ranking officer in Germany's counterintelligence agency brings Oskar into the fold because of their mutual involvement in a patriotic youth league, and soon dispatches him to Washington, D.C., on a perilous mission. Despite his best efforts, Oskar is compromised, and must immediately find a way to sneak back into Germany unnoticed. A childhood friend introduces him to Lena, a Socialist and fellow expat, and they hatch a plan to have Oskar pose as her husband as they cross the Atlantic on a cruise ship filled with Nazis and fellow travelers. But bad luck follows them at every turn, and they find themselves messily entangled with the son of a U.S. Senator, a White Russian princess, a disgraced journalist, an aging brigadier, and a gay SS officer as the novel races toward an explosive conclusion. From the Hardcover edition.

Art Of Learning The from the Author: Katherine M. Ramsland. Students who know how to tap their own resources have a better chance at success. The skills necessary to do this can be learned and it is the primary purpose of The Art of Learning to take them through the steps. Beginning with the importance of self-motivation, students are introduced to concrete methods for becoming responsible for their education and for moving beyond passive “information processing” to active involvement with classroom material. The book combines insights from philosophy, psychology, education, and studies in creativity and peak performance in a handbook on the art of being a student. Focusing on motivation, learning blocks, self-examination, and concentration, Ramsland teaches students how to utilize inner instruction to achieve thinking, creativity, and maximum personal and academic benefits. The art of being a student has been taken for granted. Students today need basic advice, and that advice should begin with the personal dynamics of the learning process.
