NLGR: Mandarin book recommendation

This is Not Latin or Greek Related. Just wondering whether anyone can recommend a good book for learning Mandarin. Preferably one that focuses more on pinyin rather than script. I would like to learn how to speak Mandarin first, and then work on characters later.

Final exam question

Anyway, the band is Alexisonfire and the song is "waterwings". Has anyone ...

Theocracy and other misnomers

I was irritated to hear yet again the term "theocracy" being used in connection with new government options in Iraq.Even regarded with the most generous optimism a rule by god is not quite feasible in this dark age but I'm stumped for the right word to describe what is meant-namely, a rule by clerics or priests - hierocracy? presbyocracy?
Any ideas?

And I found that it was a)mugda/loj which was very close to the name of Queen of Nabu in Starwars Ep. I., Amidala. Do you guys think Lukas had that in ...
