Could you tell me if the film/TV/streaming rights are currently available for "The Thread of the Silkworm"? If not, who owned or optioned it? Many thanks.

How do I order book "Shame?"
I bought the book "shame" from Basic Books; an e-book; but where did it go. I can't find it on kindle or nook. [email protected]
I´m an author at Basic Books and for the past two weeks have been trying to reach your office by phone. I need a pdf copy of my book. Who should I write or talk to obtain it? Thanks, Hector Feliciano, The Lost Museum
Quick question, Basic Books. I've seen availability for Roger Moorhouse's At First Fight, and Poland 1939. Are they the same book, the first published by Bodley Head, and the second by you? Much thanks.
When Smoke Ran Like Water Tales Of Environmental Deception And The Battle Against Pollution by Devra Davis In When Smoke Ran Like Water, the world-renowned epidemiologist Devra Davis confronts the public triumphs and private failures of her lifelong battle against environmental pollution. She documents the shocking toll of a public-health disaster-300,000 deaths a year in the U.S. and Europe from the effects of pollution-and asks why we remain silent. For Davis, the issue is personal: Pollution is what killed many in her family and forced some of the others, survivors of the 1948 smog emergency in Donora, Pennsylvania, to live out their lives with impaired health. She describes that episode and also makes startling revelations about how the deaths from the London smog of 1952 were falsely attributed to influenza; how the oil companies and auto manufacturers fought for decades to keep lead in gasoline, while knowing it caused brain damage; and many other battles. When Smoke Ran Like Water makes a devastating case for change. data : Genre: Nonfiction / Social Science / Anthropology On Sale: December 25th 2003 Price: $18.99 / $22 (CAD) Page Count: 352 ISBN-13: 9780465015221 sadar atau tidak, hidup berdampingan dengan polusi asap (aneka sumber), meng gadai kan kesehatan di tukar sakit & penyakit dari @Anda untuk @Anda dan oleh ulah @Anda tanpa bisa Undo / Skip / Scroll tan bisa Enda (jawa) / hindarie isi dan pemikiran detail nya, silah kan baca buku ini (diatas) jadi jangan sekali kali salah kan orang lain namun suluh kan @diri Anda sendiri kawan
