The purpose of this book is to propose a legal regime to govern the exploitation of natural resources of the moon and other celestial bodies. Considering, on the one side, the interest shown by states and private operators to extract and use extraterrestrial natural resources and, on the other, the absence of specific rules dealing with such an option, the establishment of a legal framework to regulate the exploitation of natural resources of the moon and other celestial bodies is needed so as to ensure its peaceful, safe and orderly development.

A distinguished dance critic offers an enchanting introduction to the art of ballet As much as we may enjoy Swan Lake or The Nutcracker, for many of us ballet is a foreign language. It communicates through movement, not words, and its history lies almost entirely abroad -- in Russia, Italy, and France. In Celestial Bodies, dance critic Laura Jacobs makes the foreign familiar, providing a lively, poetic, and uniquely accessible introduction to the world of classical dance. Combining history, interviews with dancers, technical definitions, descriptions of performances, and personal stories, Jacobs offers an intimate and passionate guide to watching ballet and understanding the central elements of choreography. Beautifully written and elegantly illustrated with original drawings, Celestial Bodies is essential reading for all lovers of this magnificent art form.

The thirteen full moons that make up a full calendar year each have various names assigned by native people, farmers, pagans and mystics. These names often reflect the seasonal schedule for hunting, planting and harvesting; they evoke and invoke plants, animals, weather, human activities, and gods. Celestial Bodies draws from these lunar labels. The cycle of poems begins and ends with July, and traces a year of full moons that parallel and illuminate a new and unfolding relationship.

Private investigator Nick Tremain had accepted this case as a last-ditch effort save his floundering agency. His prime suspects turned out to be a dotty astrologer and his daughter -- an emerald-eyed beauty of a daughter! How could he maintain his last shred of professional dignity when all he could think about was getting Diana Stewart into his arms? . . . What was the mysterious, and obviously overqualified, young man doing looking for employment in Diana's shop? Diana just couldn't believe Nick was really interested in her father's footsteps. He did seem harmless with that engaging smile and those turquoise-blue eyes, but why was her father suddenly predicting doom?
