Lawrence Lessig - "a brilliant agile mind - absolutely extraordinarily prolific writer and speaker and above all an advocate for all the right things"
"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of a thinking power called an idea ... no one possesses the less of it because every other possesses the whole of it ... as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening mine" -- Thomas Jefferson

What might a young boy living with his parents in a sleepy seaside town in 18th century England fancy? An adventure in search of buried treasure in exotic locations might seem like just the thing. But what young Jim Hawkins doesn't realise is that there is much more to this horrifying adventure when the buccaneering pirate Long John Silver and his band are involved. A gripping tale and a marvellous coming-of-age story.
In an age where global travel within a limited time frame was unusual and reserved for heroic adventurers, Phileas Fogg bets his companions at the Reform Club 20,000 pounds that he can circumnavigate the world in only eighty days. Accompanied by his valet Passepartout, they attempt this feat. Despite obstacles thrown at them by man and nature, Fogg is determined that he will not be defeated. Gripping reading.
The Iliad is one of the two major ancient Greek epic poems of Homer and the first and greatest achievement of Classical Greek civilization. It tells of the last years of the siege of the city of Ilion (Troy) by the Greeks under King Agamemnon. It explores the conflict between love and honour, rage and control, a long life and a glorious life; all under the watchful and meddling Gods.
