185 Cities Of Gold: A Journey Across The American Southwest.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: s Softcover. Brand new book. 
'This riveting true story recounts the author's journey on horseback across Arizona and New Mexico, retracing Coronado's desperate search for the legendary Seven Cities of Gold. First published in 1992 and now available only from UNM Press, this classic adventure tale reveals the Southwest as it was when Europeans first saw it and shows how much, and how little, it has changed. "The great myth of the American West," Preston writes, "is that there was a winning of it." Douglas Preston has written several books on the Southwest. He is also the coauthor of the novels Relic, Riptide, and Thunderhead (1999). 6 x 9.25 in., 480 pages, 1 map. "The Old West's last glimmers flicker through this piercingly beautiful adventure, an unforgettable saga in which Preston, astride his horse Popeye, traverses the desert and mountain wilderness of Arizona and New Mexico, retracing the trailblazing 1540-1541 expedition of Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. . . . In place of the mythical winning of the West, Preston unfolds a harrowing tale of loss." -- Publishers Weekly "A vivid, often witty, account of riding through some of the most difficult terrain in the Southwest, and of some of the people, including Indians, who still live there. . . . the entire book is sheer pleasure to read." -- San Diego Union-Tribune "A fearful, fascinating tale." -- Los Angeles Times

199 Cool: How Air Conditioning Changed Everything.
Fordham University Press, New York: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
It's a contraption that makes the lists of "Greatest Inventions Ever"; at the same time, it's accused of causing global disaster. It has changed everything from architecture to people's food habits to their voting patterns, to even the way big business washes its windows. It has saved countless lives . . . while causing countless deaths. Most of us are glad it's there. But we don't know how, or when, it got there. It's air conditioning. For thousands of years, humankind attempted to do something about the slow torture of hot weather. Everything was tried: water power, slave power, electric power, ice made from steam engines and cold air made from deadly chemicals, "zephyrifers," refrigerated beds, ventilation amateurs and professional air-sniffers. It wasn't until 1902 when an engineer barely out of college developed the "Apparatus for Treating Air"—a machine that could actually cool the indoors—and everyone assumed it would instantly change the world. That wasn't the case. There was a time when people "ignored" hot weather while reading each day's list of heat-related deaths, women wore furs in the summertime, heatstroke victims were treated with bloodletting . . . and the notion of a machine to cool the air was considered preposterous, even sinful. The story of air conditioning is actually two stories: the struggle to perfect a cooling device, and the effort to convince people that they actually needed such a thing. 80 Black and White Illustrations. Salvatore Basile was educated at the Boston Conservatory and The Juilliard School and began his career as a professional musician. After penning various music-related articles, he entered the field of social commentary with his history Fifth Avenue Famous: The Extraordinary Story of Music at St. Patrick's Cathedral (Fordham). "Basile's conversational style and knack for turning a phrase make Cool a brisk and delightful read."—Christopher Dietrich, Fordham University "Cool offers a fascinating glimpse into what life was like before the advent of air conditioning and how its acceptance changed society. Well researched and with fascinating stories on every page, Cool is a fast-paced chronicle of one of history's behind-the-scenes stories that many of us take for granted: how air conditioning changed the way we live."—Chuck Campbell, President/CEO, Friedrich Air Conditioning Co. "A look at our love affair with air conditioning . . . In his breezily anecdotal book, Mr. Basile reminds readers that . . . air-conditioning was not just about comfort. It triggered a cultural and demographic revolution."—Sam Roberts, The New York Times "The technically minded reader might feel a little short-changed by Basile's short, sharp micro-history, but the essentials are all here: the problem of humidity, the risks posed by different refrigerants, and so on."—New Scientist "This will come as a relief to readers more inclined to lively, well-researched nonfiction narratives than scientific manuals. Nevertheless, Basile offers enough information about mechanics to be able to explain cogently, and in layman's terms, why predecessors to the modern air conditioner were ineffective, and why the invention as we know it today succeeded where its forebears had failed."—The Weekly Standard

200 Copyfraud And Other Abuses Of Intellectual Property Law.
Stanford University Press, Palo Alto: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Intellectual property law in the United States does not work well and it needs to be reformed—but not for the reasons given by most critics. The issue is not that intellectual property rights are too easily obtained, too broad in scope, and too long in duration. Rather, the primary problem is overreaching by publishers, producers, artists, and others who abuse intellectual property law by claiming stronger rights than the law actually gives them. From copyfraud—like phony copyright notices attached to the U.S. Constitution—to lawsuits designed to prevent people from poking fun at Barbie, from controversies over digital sampling in hip-hop to Major League Baseball's ubiquitous restriction on sharing any "accounts and descriptions of this game," overreaching claims of intellectual property rights are everywhere. Overreaching interferes with legitimate uses and reproduction of a wide variety of works, imposes enormous social and economic costs, and ultimately undermines creative endeavors. As this book reveals, the solution is not to change the scope or content of intellectual property rights, but to create mechanisms to prevent people asserting rights beyond those they legitimately possess. While there are many other books on intellectual property, this is the first to examine overreaching as a distinct problem and to show how to solve it. Jason Mazzone makes a series of timely proposals by which government, organizations, and ordinary people can stand up to creators and content providers when they seek to grab more than the law gives them. Jason Mazzone has taught intellectual property law and constitutional law at Brooklyn Law School since 2003; he is the youngest faculty member in the school's history to hold an endowed chair. A renowned legal scholar, Mazzone has written about legal issues for the New York Times and other national newspapers, and he is a regular media commentator and a blogger at the popular legal blog, Balkinization. He received his undergraduate and law degrees from Harvard University, a master's degree from Stanford University, and a master's and doctorate from Yale University. Before entering academia, he was a law clerk to two federal judges and he practiced intellectual property law in New York City. "Yo, this engaging book isn't afraid to expose some of the music industry's most widespread 'dirty little secrets.' Although the Copyright System has its roots in the U.S. Constitution and is designed to promote and reward creativity on an 'honor' system, the Copyright Laws themselves have been hijacked and exploited by less than honorable people. If you are a musician or songwriter, read this book to avoid becoming yet another victim."—George Clinton "Jason Mazzone powerfully crystallizes a set of digital copyright problems not focused on infringement by the public, but rather overreaching by copyright holders. He makes a crucial contribution to a framework for shoring up the governance of bits in the digital age: the formidable powers of intellectual property should be matched by proper policing of its boundaries."—Jonathan Zittrain, Harvard University, author of The Future of the Internet—And How to Stop It "Jason Mazzone masterfully shows the astonishing ways in which content industries misuse their intellectual property rights-and how to rein them in. This book will transform debates about balancing private property with public access to information in the digital age. A must read for anyone who cares about the future of creativity."—Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia
