New York: Bantam Books, a division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., 1990. Light Creasing on Front, Rear Covers, Spine; Front, Rear Covers, Spine Lightly Chipped; Spine Slightly Cocked; Edges Lightly Soiled; Moderate Yellowing Due to Age. THE SEQUEL TO RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA. BOOK NUMBER: 28658-7. SYNOPSIS: THE RAMANS ARE BACK . . . Years ago, the enormous, enigmatic alien spacecraft called Rama sailed through our solar system as mind-boggling proof that life existed - or had existed - elsewhere in the universe. Now, at the dawn of the twenty-third century, another ship is discovered hurtling toward us. A crew of Earth's best and brightest minds is assembled to rendezvous with the massive vessel. They are armed with everything we know about Raman technology and culture. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to encounter on board Rama II: cosmic secrets that are startling, sensational - and perhaps even deadly. - and - SECOND RENDEZVOUS The operations manager at the great radar pulse generator Excalibur did not even inform his supervisor the first time a strange blip appeared on his data processing display. He thought it was an artifact, a bogey created by an anomalous processing algorithm. When the signature repeated several times, though, he paid closer attention. The manager called in the chief Excalibur scientist, who analyzed the data and decided that the object was a long period comet. It was another two months before a graduate student proved that the signature belonged to a smooth body at least forty kilometers in its longest dimension. By 2197 the world knew that the object hurtling through the solar system toward the inner planets was a second extraterrestrial spacecraft. The International Space Agency concentrated its resources to prepare a mission that would intercept the intruder just inside the orbit of Venus in late February of 2200. Again the eyes of humanity looked outward, toward the stars, and the deep philosophical questions raised by the first Rama were again debated by the populace on Earth. As the new visitor drew nearer and its physical characteristics were more carefully resolved by the host of sensors aimed in its direction, it was confirmed that this alien spacecraft, at least from the outside, was identical to its predecessor. Rama had returned. Mankind had a second appointment with destiny. Arthur C. Clarke is one of the most famous science fiction writers of all time. In addition to Rendezvous with Rama, he has written such million-copy bestsellers as Childhood's End, 2001: A Space Odyssey, 2010: Odyssey Two, and 2061: Odyssey Three. He cobroadcast the Apollo 11, 12, and 15 missions with Walter Cronkite and Captain Wally Schirra, and shared an Oscar nomination with Stanley Kubrick for the film version of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Arthur C. Clarke is legendary. He's a science fiction writer who imaginings reverberate outside the realm of fiction. A true visionary, he conceived of communications satellites in geostationary orbits-a speculation soon realized. No less remarkable are his literary works. His 1973 novel Rendezvous with Rama swept the Hugo, Nebula, and Campbell awards. Author of more than fifty books, Clarke has fifty million copies in print. At the heart of every Arthur C. Clarke novel lives a small puzzle with large ramifications. He is an author who takes an idea and drops it into a quiet pool of thought. There's a splash-that's the intriguing nature of Clarke's scientific genius. Then the ripples spread out, washing up on character, society, soaking the whole book in wonder. It laps around your toes as you read . . . Gentry Lee has been chief engineer on Project Galileo, director of science analysis and mission planning for NASA's Viking mission to Mars, and partner with Carl Sagan in the design, development, and implementation of the television series Cosmos. Mr. Clarke and Mr. Lee previously collaborated on the novel Cradle.. First Thus 1st Printing. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good.

Summary: April 2000 will launch a panoply of events celebrating the Library of Congress's 200th anniversary, the star of which will be the exhibition Thomas Jefferson: Genius of Liberty. Featuring more than 150 valuable and historic items and a rare public display of the Jefferson library that is the nucleus of the Library's collections, both the exhibition and its companion book will seek out the complex character, ideals, and motivations behind the mythic founding achievements of this brilliant son of the Enlightenment.The book's lively narrative, illuminated by Jefferson's own words, weaves back and forth between the public career--delegate to the Continental Congress, author of the Declaration of Independence and other calls to liberty, governor of Virginia, two-term president--and his life at his beloved plantation and house, Monticello. Commentaries on manuscripts explore the conflicts between his public ideals, political realities, and his private life, including the recent controversial evidence of a long liaison with his slave Sally Hemings. From his worldview to his family relationships, Thomas Jefferson provides a new and intimate sense of the man historians have only recently begun to extricate from the lofty abstractions that have born his name.
