New Books and DVDs in February


This month the University Library has added over 250 books and DVDs to our collection! Here are some highlights:  

Humans of New York: Stories by Brandon Stanton.

"In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project -- to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took and the accompanying interviews became the blog Humans of New York. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of people in stunning photographs, with a rich design and, most importantly, longer stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor."

Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James can teach you about economics by John Tamny. 

"John Tamny uses entertaining stories from sports, movies, popular culture, and famous businesses to explain the basic principles of economics. His Dollars and Sense is an everyman's guide to how money really works-a lesson politicians try (and fail) to grasp every day."

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. "What if you could live again and again, until you got it right? On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war. Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she? Darkly comic, startlingly poignant, and utterly original -- this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best."

Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world."

He Named Me Malala, a film by Davis Guggenheim. "An intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her in Pakistan's Swat Valley. The shooting of the then fifteen-year-old teenager sparked international media outrage. An educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate."
