  • Baconi, Tareq.
    HAMAS CONTAINED: The Rise and Pacification of Palestinian Resistance.
    Edition: First printing.

    Palo Alto, CA: Stanford University Press, (2018) dj. Hardcover first edition - A title in the Stanford Studies in Middle Eastern and Islamic Societies and Cultures series, and the first comprehensive look at the history of Hamas. "Neither a democratic political party nor a terrorist group, Hamas is a multifaceted liberation organization, one rooted in the nationalist claims of the Palestinian people. . . Drawing on interviews with organization leaders, as well as publications from the group, Tareq Baconi maps Hamas's thirty-year transition from fringe military resistance towards governance. He breaks new ground in questioning the conventional understanding of Hamas and shows how the movement's ideology ultimately threatens the Palestinian struggle and, inadvertently, its own legitimacy." Notes, bibliography, index. xxiv, 336 pp. ISBN: 978-0804797412.

I now found myself in a loathsome prison, among a collection of the most wretched and disgusting looking objects that I ever beheld in human form. Here was a motley crew, covered with rags and filth; visages pallid with disease; emaciated with hunger and anxiety; and hardly retaining a trace of their original appearance."

    Adams, Richard.
    THE GIRL IN A SWING.
    Edition: Uncorrected proof (trade paperback format. )

    London: Allen Lane, (1980.). SIGNED first edition - A very different novel by the author best known for 'Watership Down.' A love story with a steadily growing undertone of horror. It is ironical - in light of the fact that in the preface to this book, Adams says that he "cannot be sure of unraveling the experienced from the imagined" - that this novel was the subject of a libel suit, and the first printings were suppressed and the name of the main character - Kathe - was changed (this proof copy is, of course, the first state with the original name.) INSCRIBED by Adams on the first page "To - yours sincerely." 397 pp.

    Condition: Very good in printed blue covers - an uncommon advance issue.

    BRAIN WAVES AND DEATH.
    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1940. dj. Hardcover first edition - A locked room mystery with a twist: a scientist under observation in a sealed room is killed during an experiment in a laboratory where a research team is studying electroencephalography. The author's only novel, this was published posthumously under the pseudonym "Willard Rich" a few weeks after its author, William T. Richards, took his own life. Although the setting was moved to the Boston area, this novel was a thinly veiled account of the secret laboratory founded in New York by Alfred Lee Loomis, and nicknamed "Tuxedo Park." Loomis went on to establish the MIT Rad Lab and later was instrumental in setting up the Manhattan Project. When this novel appeared, Loomis threatened to sue, and Patty Conant, Richards's sister, urged her husband, Harvard President James B. Conant, to recall all the copies (although he apparently refused to do, this is still a remarkably scarce book) 244 pp.
