New Release – Green Morality

Book Description:

Green Morality, renowned environmental columnist’s Edward Flattau’s fourth book, is a thorough and timely exploration of mankind’s moral obligation to create an environmentally sustainable global society. Along the way, he confronts moral hypocrisy, failed environmental movements and policies, globally disastrous scenarios, and reckless endangerment of the world’s species. The exploration of destructive and immoral environmental behavior includes coverage of numerous often little publicized actions that have adversely affected humanity and lower life forms. To avoid ultimate wholesale, permanent environmental destruction, Flattau advocates a major realignment of our value system and economic infrastructure, all in the name of creating an environmentally, economically sustainable society. Crossing political and cultural boundaries, Flattau portrays environmentalism as a universal moral imperative that every person has a duty to uphold, not only for the salvation of the modern society, but for the entire planet. Flattau presents an analysis of environmentalism’s current situation and its history throughout the twentieth century uncovering the devastation committed by individuals, corporations and governments to the world’s species and fellow humans. In the process, he demonstrates how these destructive actions conflict with the very values that the offending parties espouse. Flattau delivers starkly eminent solutions to avert environmental destruction that require a re-alignment of modern society’s value system and economic structure, transcending historical, political or institutional obligations.

Category: POLITICAL SCIENCE Book – SOCIAL SCIENCES

Price: $9.99

Author Biography:

Ed Flattau was born in New York City and graduated from Brown University in 1958. He left Columbia Law School after two years to begin his journalist career as a general assignment reporter in the Albany, N.Y. United Press International Bureau. In 1964, he became a political correspondent for UPI in New York State where he covered the legislature and Governor Rockefeller. Three years later, he transferred to UPI’s Washington bureau where his beat included congress, various federal agencies and on occasion, the White House. In the spring of 1972, Stewart Udall, former interior secretary under President Kennedy, was impressed enough with Flattau’s freelance environmental writing to choose Ed to succeed him as author of the country’s first nationally syndicated environmental column. Flattau is the author of Tracking the Charlatans (Global Horizons Press, 1998), which received excellent reviews and has been widely circulated in environmental and academic circles. The book rebuts ultra-conservative and Libertarian critics of mainstream environmentalism. His second book, Evolution of a Columnist, was published in 2003 and also garnered excellent reviews. In 2004, his third book, Peering Through the Bushes, a cutting critique of George W Bush’s environmental record, was published and accurately anticipated the President’s future actions.
The Washington-based Flattau’s column has appeared in as many as 120 daily newspapers at various times during the past three decades. He has won ten national journalism awards, reported from five different continents, and covered the key issues and principle figures associated with modern day environmentalism. Flattau is married and the father of two children. He has lived in the nation’s capital for the past 40 years.

ISBN:  978-0-9897415-2-1

Category: MIND AND BODY

Price: $9.99

Author Biography:

Dan Rice, National VP of the Route 66 Alliance, first walked Route 66 as a child in Chicago. Since then, he’s driven it 27 times and in 2009, he opened the first Route 66 shop ever at the road’s end, “66-to-Cali” on the Santa Monica Pier. His tiny shop of US Made Route 66 products became an instant landmark, drawing fans around the world.

Rice corrected the historical oversight Santa Monica made by never placing signs referencing Route 66’s end there. After 2400 miles, a quarter million annual travelers always complained of the ultimate roadtrip’s anti-climactic end, so Rice’s shop changed that. Even moreso when he and his wife rediscovered, bought the rights to, and resurrected the historic “End of the Trail” sign that once stood at Route 66’s end but went missing from Santa Monica in the 1950’s.

Just three months after opening “66-to-Cali,” Rice resurrected that sign for the 83rd birthday of Route 66, a birthday event that according to Pollack PR, an LA Based PR company reached an estimated audience of 60 million people around the world. Rice states, “NBC showed up at 4:30 in the morning, and by 9am we had all the networks, radio stations, and newspapers. That night we made the NBC Nightly News and the next day the New York Times, LA Times, and the ‘Independent’ in the U.K. That last article got syndicated to Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa making it the largest one day event in Route 66 history, an incredible birthday present to 66.” Suddenly fans had a “finish line” to celebrate at, and with a finish finally established, things really revved up for Rice.

Rice was quickly elected President of the California Historic Route 66 Association. The California Assembly drafted a state resolution for “Route 66 Day” in Santa Monica, specifically citing 66-to-Cali as central to Route 66’s resurgence. The National Historic Route 66 Federation ensconced Rice as a new Route 66 icon for his vision, including him as a new writer to their quarterly magazine, distributed in 14 countries around the world. But Rice’s biggest compliment came just after the sign went back up. “I spoke for 3 minutes to the press and was immediately offered a book deal. It was surreal.” Rice put pen to paper, and 66-to-Cali won “New Business of the Year” at the 2010 Will Rogers Awards. Eleven documentaries and a year later, his book “End of the Trail,” was released, prompting a national book tour. In 2012, a small project with the History Channel followed, bringing a subsequent offer to develop his own TV show in 2013, “The Road Scholar.” Rice takes none of it for granted. “We’re having great discussions with several networks, but you never know what’ll happen. At the end of the day, it’s the roads and the people who build them that are the real stars anyway, not me. I just do what I love.”

Recently, Rice expanded his scope beyond Route 66 by working with CBS Radio in the Midwest to anchor Heritage Tourism there. “Our roads link us together and while Route 66 links 8 states, there are 42 others with their own stories to tell. What I’ve done with Route 66 is just the beginning. I want to tell them all. By telling them all, we can bring glory to the whole country!”

Critically Acclaimed: “Bound to Die” by Anna Flowers, Keeps on Selling

For True Crime Readers, The Numbers Tell the Story, Click Through to Buy Below!

Bound to Die is the true crime story of Florida serial killer Bobby Joe Long, who was convicted of the heinous killings of nine women in 1984 in the Tampa Bay area. The first body of 19-year-old disco dancer Lana Long was found in a field on Mother’s Day with her legs grotesquely ripped apart. Six months later, the bloody rampage ended when the ninth victim was discovered. All had been tortured with ropes and savagely beaten and raped. The killer’s confession of his crimes is haunting. The vividly rendered results of his trials and appeals are equally shocking.

First published by Kensington, NY in 1995, Bound to Die was internationally recognized. It received seven mass media printings and was issued in hardback as a Doubleday Mystery Guild Book Club selection. This second edition features a new foreword on a capital case which is still considered a definitive example of excellent police detection before DNA.

Multiple television presentations have been made based on this book, some including the author’s participation. Shortly after first publication, a documentary based on the case was shown on Medical Detective that aired sporadically for years. In 2012, this story became the pilot for the new show Killer Profile on the Biography Channel.

coverAnna Flowers is an award winning author of four true crime books: Blind Fury, Bound to Die, Murder at Wayside Antiques, and Wanton Woman: Sue Logue, Strom Thurmond and the Bloody Logue -Timmerman Feud. She has been a member of Mystery Writers of America for twenty years, where she served as Director of the Florida Chapter, and was a member of the prestigious national committee for selection of Best Novel at the Edgar Alan Poe Awards held annually in New York City.

She has a son, Dr. Benjamin Brotemarkle, Director of the Florida Historical Society and a daughter, Judge Belle Brotemarkle Schumann.
