BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: May 1, 1992

"Published in conjunction with the UN Conference on Environment and Development, Piel's scenario depends on much human goodwill and longer-range self-interest—and wouldn't that be nice?"
Saturated with facts but consistently engaging and readable, Piel's prescription for global salvation marshals history, anthropology, economics, and ecology to demonstrate the measures necessary to create an equitable and sustainable economy—one that's capable of absorbing a final doubling of the world's human population.

DR. MORTIMER AND THE ALDGATE MYSTERY by Gerard Williams
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 20, 2001

"Here, the good doctor attends young Lavinia Nancarrow only to discover that her influenza is less threatening than the sinister guardian who, in the best tradition of 'The Copper Beeches' and 'The Greek Interpreter,' is keeping her imprisoned in an Aldgate house."
Through a chronological accident worthy of Dr. Watson, this inaugural adventure of Dr. James Mortimer, the physician whose main claim to fame before this year was leaving a cane behind in Sherlock Holmes's rooms in The Hound of the Baskervilles, has already been preceded by his second (Dr. Mortimer and the Barking Man Mystery, p. 299).
