The Science Education of American Girls provides a comparative analysis of the science education of adolescent boys and girls, and analyzes the evolution of girls' scientific interests from the antebellum era through the twentieth century. Kim Tolley expands the understanding of the structural and cultural obstacles that emerged to transform what, in the early nineteenth century, was regarded as a "girl's subject." As the form and content of pre-college science education developed, Tolley argues, direct competition between the sexes increased. Subsequently, the cultural construction of science as a male subject limited access and opportunity for girls.

The Maison de Verre (literally "House of Glass") is a rarely seen modernist masterpiece in the center of Paris. Here, for the first time, is the inside story of its birth and character. In 1927 Annie and Jean Dalsace acquired an eighteenth-century town house and commissioned their friend, the architect and designer Pierre Chareau, to turn it into a modern dwelling. What he did was without precedent. Underpinning the top story, he removed everything beneath it, replaced the walls with translucent glass bricks, installed remotely controlled swiveling windows and divided the interior by perforated metal screens that rotate or slide silently. He built galleried balconies and open-topped staircases that permit the eye to rove freely through the space and to appreciate works of art collected by the modern-spirited Annie Dalsace, and the unique collection of furniture designed by the architect, some covered with tapestry by the artist Jean Lurcat. The text is by Dominique Vellay, granddaughter of the original clients, who has known the house ever since her childhood, and makes us experience it at first hand. The photographs are by the internationally renowned Francois Halard.

Written by Peter Moon and Radu Cinamar, a highly placed Romanian intelligence operative, this book heralds the most remarkable archaeological find in the annals of Mankind. Unbeknownst to most, there is an ancient sphinx located in the Bucegi Mountains of Romania. In 2003, the Pentagon discovered, through the use of satellite technology, an anomaly beneath this ancient sphinx. Through the highest levels of Freemasonry, the Pentagon was able to secure an alliance with the most secret department of the Romanian Intelligence Service which is known as Department Zero. Together, the Romanians and the Americans utilised the Pentagon's secret technology to penetrate a hidden chamber beneath the sphinx which was otherwise inaccessible to humans. What was discovered eventually was a holographic Hall of Records left by an advanced civilisation near three mysterious tunnels leading into the Inner Earth. The book chronicles the discovery of these modern day artefacts which represent the dawn of a new era for Mankind. Peter Moon is brought into the fold through his friend, Dr David Anderson, the mysterious scientist who founded the Time Travel Research Center on Long Island and also maintains a similar facility in Romania. Recognising that such satellite technology would had to have utilised Dr Anderson's proprietary space-time technology for maintaining satellites in orbit, Peter Moon pursues these matters further and accepts Dr Anderson's invitation to Romania where he visits the Romanian Sphinx and learns of a mysterious association between the mysterious time travel scientist and Radu Cinamar.
