Series Description: Today the city, tomorrow the world! That's the plan of II Palazzo, the haughty, pretty-boy leader of ACROSS, a secret society based somewhere deep beneath the streets and sewers of Fukuoka, Japan.

The women -- two human, one puppy -- of ACROSS continue their quest to part-time their way to power, temping for the greater glory of their prettyboy lord, II Palazzo. Meanwhile, Excel and Hyatt are determined to shape the future of Fukuoka while hoping to make enough money to avoid having to eat their dog Mince! But normal-guy neighbors Watanabe, Iwata, and Sumiyoshi plan to break into ACROSS headquarters. Will this end up another Watergate, or just the worst game of AD&D ever?
A "New York Times" Notable Book for 2011 Sometime around 1750, English entrepreneurs unleashed the astounding energies of steam and coal, and the world was forever changed. The emergence of factories, railroads, and gunboats propelled the West's rise to power in the nineteenth century, and the development of computers and nuclear weapons in the twentieth century secured its global supremacy. The Story of Scotland download PDF Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, many worry that the emerging economic power of China and India spells the end of the West as a superpower. In order to understand this possibility, we need to look back in time. Why has the West dominated the globe for the past two hundred years, and will its power last?Describing the patterns of human history, the archaeologist and historian Ian Morris offers surprising new answers to both questions. It is not, he reveals, differences of race or culture, or even the strivings of great individuals, that explain Western dominance. It is the effects of geography on the everyday efforts of ordinary people as they deal with crises of resources, disease, migration, and climate. As geography and human ingenuity continue to interact, the world will change in astonishing ways, transforming Western rule in the process.Deeply researched and brilliantly argued, "Why the West Rules for Now "spans fifty thousand years of history and offers fresh insights on nearly every page. The book brings together the latest findings across disciplines from ancient history to neuroscience not only to explain why the West came to rule the world but also to predict what the future will bring in the next hundred years."
