Product : Buying the Right Photo Equipment: 70 Tips from the Top
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : We've all heard the saying, "Clothes make the man"; but does the photographic equipment make the photographer? One might think so when looking at new advanced cameras, dream lenses, and all the editing software out there. Others might disagree after admiring the wonderful photographs by Henri Cartier Bresson or Edward Weston, which were taken with relatively simple cameras and lenses. The real questions to ask yourself include: What kind of images would I like to make? And what are all these things that I see advertised as indispensable photo equipment really for? This book will teach you about the variety of photographic tools available and what each item is meant to accomplish. Learn about the benefits and drawbacks of various pieces of equipment and discover what kind of gear you need to realize your creative ambitions.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the story of Rick Grajirena and his efforts to import and distribute Miller Beer in a land where capitalism is as capricious and corrupt as the bureaucrats, soldiers, hustlers, and ever-present "Mafiya" he had to include in the process. It is an entertaining and highly enlightening tale of vision and persistence that has a little bit of everything -- crime, cross-cultural confusion, corruption at the highest levels -- all inter-twined with Harper's dramatic account of Grajirena's struggle to dominate the new "Wild West" of Russia.

Business and Its Environment

Product : Business and Its Environment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides a new approach to management and strategy in the business environment by addressing the issues that arise when a firm is embedded in the nonmarket environment, or the legal, political, and social context in which the firm is embedded. Its approach is a managerial one, rather than a public policy or social responsibility perspective, and focuses on issues of importance to managers of firms, emphasizing analysis and reasoning as the foundations for forming effective and responsible business strategies. The book gives conceptual frameworks for analyzing the business environment. They are: 1) understanding issues and their development, 2) strategy formulation, 3) analyzing the news media, 4) political analysis, 5) market failures, 6) the economics and politics of government intervention, 7) the economics and politics of international trade, 8) country analysis, and 9) ethics analysis and decision-making. These frameworks are based in the disciplines of economics, political science, law, and ethics and are applied to the environment of business in the United States and other countries, including China, Japan, and the European Union. The book contains 73 case studies, including Microsoft, eBay, ScheringPlough, Citigroup, DoubleClick, and British Petroleum. For managers in firms in the United States and other countries, and government employees whose jobs deal with the policy-making and business.

Seeing and Being Seen: The Q'Eqchi' Maya of Livingston, Guatemala, and Beyond

Product : Seeing and Being Seen: The Q'Eqchi' Maya of Livingston, Guatemala, and Beyond
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The practice of morality and the formation of identity among an indigenous Latin American culture are framed in a pioneering ethnography of sight that attempts to reverse the trend of anthropological fieldwork and theory overshadowing one another. In this vital and richly detailed work, methodology and theory are treated as complementary partners as the author explores the dynamic Mayan customs of the Q'eqchi' people living in the cultural crossroads of Livingston, Guatemala. Here, Q'eqchi', Ladino, and Garifuna (Caribbean-coast Afro-Indians) societies interact among themselves and with others ranging from government officials to capitalists to contemporary tourists. The fieldwork explores the politics of sight and incorporates a video camera operated by multiple people-- the author and the Q'eqchi' people themselves-- to watch unobtrusively the traditions, rituals, and everyday actions that exemplify the long-standing moral concepts guiding the Q'eqchi' in their relationships and tribulations. Sharing the camera lens, as well as the lens of ethnographic authority, allows the author to slip into the world of the Q'eqchi' and capture their moral, social, political, economic, and spiritual constructs shaped by history, ancestry, external forces, and time itself. A comprehensive history of the Q'eqchi' illustrates how these former plantation laborers migrated to lands far from their Mayan ancestral homes to co-exist as one of several competing cultures, and what impact this had on maintaining continuity in their identities, moral codes of conduct, and perception of the changing outside world. With the innovative use of visual methods and theories, the author'sreflexive, sensory-oriented ethnographic approach makes this a study that itself becomes a reflection of the complex set of social structures embodied in its subject.

The Sixth Extinction: Journeys Among the Lost and Left Behind

Product : The Sixth Extinction: Journeys Among the Lost and Left Behind
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Sixth Extinction" is a haunting account of the age in which we live. Ecologists are calling it the Sixth Great Extinction, and the world isn't losing just its ecological legacy; also vanishing is a vast human legacy of languages and our ways of living, seeing, and knowing.Terry Glavin confirms that we are in the midst of a nearly unprecedented, catastrophic vanishing of animals, plants, and human cultures. He argues that the language of environmentalism is inadequate in describing the unraveling of the vast system in which all these extinctions are actually related. And he writes that we're no longer gaining knowledge with every generation. We're losing it. In the face of what he describes as a dark and gathering sameness upon the Earth, Glavin embarks on a global journey to meet the very things we're losing (a distinct species every ten minutes, a unique vegetable variety every six hours, an entire language every two weeks) and on the way encounters some of the world's wonderful, rare things: a human-sized salmon in Russia; a mysterious Sino-Tibetan song-language; a Malayan tiger, the last of its kind; and a strange tomato that tastes just like black cherry ice cream. And he finds hope in the most unlikely places---a macaw roost in Costa Rica; a small village in Ireland; a relic community of Norse whalers in the North Atlantic; the vault beneath the Royal Botanical Garden at Kew; and the throne room of the Angh of Longwa in the eastern Himalayas. A fresh narrative take on the usual doom and gloom environmentalism, "The Sixth Extinction "draws upon zoology, biology, ecology, anthropology, and mythology to share the joys hidden within the long human struggle to conserve the world's living things. Here, we find hope in what's left: the absolute and stunning beauty in the Earth's last cultures and creatures.

Lilla's Feast: A True Story of Food, Love, and War in the Orient

Product : Lilla's Feast: A True Story of Food, Love, and War in the Orient
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At the end of her life, Frances Osborne's one-hundred-year-old great-grandmother Lilla was as elegant as ever-all fitted black lace and sparkling-white diamonds. To her great-grandchildren, Lilla was both an ally and a mysterious wonder. Her bedroom was filled with treasures from every exotic corner of the world. But she rarely mentioned the Japanese prison camps in which she spent much of World War II, or the elaborate cookbook she wrote to help her survive behind the barbed wire. Beneath its polished surface, Lilla's life had been anything but effortless. Born in 1882 to English parents in the beautiful North China port city of Chefoo, Lilla was an identical twin. Growing up, she knew both great privilege and deprivation, love and its absence. But the one constant was a deep appreciation for the power of food and place. From the noodles of Shanghai to the chutney of British India and the roasts of England, good food and sensuous surroundings, Lilla was raised to believe, could carry one a long way toward happiness. Her story is brimming with the stuff of good fiction: distant locales, an improvident marriage, an evil mother-in-law, a dramatic suicide, and two world wars. Lilla's remarkable cookbook, which she composed while on the brink of starvation, makes no mention of wartime rations, of rotten vegetables and donkey meat. In the world this magical food journal, now housed in the Imperial War Museum in London, everyone is warm and safe in their homes, and the pages are filled with cream puffs, butterscotch, and comforting soup. In its writing, Lilla was able to transform the darkest moments into scrumptious escape. "Lilla's Feast" is a rich evocation of a bygone world, the inspiring story of an ordinary woman who tackled the challenges life threw in her path with an extraordinary determination.

A Chance to Learn: The History of Race and Education in the United States

Product : A Chance to Learn: The History of Race and Education in the United States
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How - and why - have children of blacks, American Indians, Mexican-Americans, and Puerto Ricans been deprived by and often excluded from the so-called American educational system? In this classic 1977 study of a problem neglected or undervalued in most standard histories of American education, Professor Meyer Weinberg seeks the answers. Concretely and empirically, he shows that from their forebearers' first contact with dominant American society, minority children have been shockingly disadvantaged by the public schools. Instead of accepting this passively, however, minority group parents and leaders have struggled against it. Their efforts and those of others to secure the amount and quality of schooling that majority offspring get almost routinely were largely failures. Dr Weinberg claims this was inevitable but says that without a clear understanding that efforts were made, no further efforts can ever succeed.

Our Mother's War: A Biography of a Child of the Dutch Resistance

Product : Our Mother's War: A Biography of a Child of the Dutch Resistance
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Christina Radich and Daniel Fiske began dating in high school, back in 1972. This book is the unlikely result of their teen-aged romance. Christina wanted to capture her mother's story of life in Nazi-occupied Holland. She didn't know how or where to start. Dan suggested that his father, Mel, a former newspaper reporter, could steer her to the starting line. Mel advised Christina to get a recorder and tapes, and ask questions. For the next 15 or so years, she taped her mother's recollections up until her death in 1994. It took several years for Christina to find Lynette Bourne, a medical transcriber, to copy all the tapes. Then Christina brought the transcriptions to Mel Fiske more than ten years after the death of her mother. What do I do now? she asked plaintively. Mel took the unedited transcriptions. He began researching the history of the Dutch people under the Nazi occupation to place the story of Christina's mother in proper historical perspective. "Our Mother's War" is the story of Aluzia Van Dalen but also that of the Dutch people from 1940 to 1945, the darkest of times for them. Aluzia went through the war with one thought: survival. "I haven't lived yet," she told herself. "Our Mother's War" recounts her struggle to live.

The End of the Past: Ancient Rome and the Modern West

Product : The End of the Past: Ancient Rome and the Modern West
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This searching interpretation of past and present addresses fundamental questions about the fall of the Roman Empire. Why did ancient culture, once so strong and rich, come to an end? Was it destroyed by weaknesses inherent in its nature? Or were mistakes made that could have been avoided--was there a point at which Greco-Roman society took a wrong turn? And in what ways is modern society different? Western history is split into two discontinuous eras, Aldo Schiavone tells us: the ancient world was fundamentally different from the modern one. He locates the essential difference in a series of economic factors: a slave-based economy, relative lack of mechanization and technology, the dominance of agriculture over urban industry. Also crucial are aspects of the ancient mentality: disdain for manual work, a preference for transcending (rather than transforming) nature, a basic belief in the permanence of limits. Schiavone's lively and provocative examination of the ancient world, "the eternal theater of history and power," offers a stimulating opportunity to view modern society in light of the experience of antiquity.

Now Marco and Polo, the newest members of the Club of Mysteries, find they have an assignment to help Texas Jake recover from his wounds. The other cats have duties too, but somehow Marco and Polo always seem to get the worst of the deal. Could Texas Jake be a wee bit jealous of Marco, the cat who can "reeeaaad," as Texas is so fond of saying? And if he doesn't recover, who will take his place? Boots? Elvis? Marco? Polo? Which of the cats does Carlotta, the calico beauty, prefer? That's the big question.

Language and Gender

Product : Language and Gender
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is an up-to-date textbook in the growing area of language and gender. It will be popular with students for its accessibility and with teachers for the range and depth it achieves in a single volume. The book contains detailed discussion of work in the field, including recent research that has previously not been readily available to undergraduates or the general reader. A range of approaches is covered at an introductory level, presenting sometimes difficult and complex issues in an understandable way. Each chapter concludes with a list of recommended readings so that each topic can be taken further. The emphasis is on recent research, with a preliminary grounding in early 'classic' studies in the field. Talbot examines the language used by women and men in a variety of speech situations and genres. For this, she draws on studies working within the Anglo-American tradition of research on language and gender. Issues and problems addressed include the difficulties arising from accounting for gender differences in terms of dichotomies like public vs private and informational vs affective - and, not least, the trouble with looking for 'differences' at all. Another group of chapters present recent, critical perspectives on language and gender grounded in European theories of discourse and subjectivity, with particular attention to Critical Discourse Analysis. These chapters examine not gender difference but the construction of gender identities. They reflect both the high degree of interest in mass media and popular culture found in recent language and gender research and the preoccupation with discourse and social change that is central to Critical Discourse Analysis. The book will become a key textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates in linguisitics, sociolinguistics, cultural and media studies, gender and women's studies and communication studies. The book is usable by students for whom it is their first, or only, contact with sociolinguistics.

Bonnie and Clyde: A Love Story

Product : Bonnie and Clyde: A Love Story
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : She preferred guys with an edge to them. Bad boys, her mama called them.Then one night she met Clyde and knew her mama was right, for Clyde Chestnut Barrow was one of the baddest. He had that look: dark, secretive eyes that never looked directly into yours combined with a pretty face and a smooth way of talking and silk shirts that fit him just right. He liked her, too. They were destined to be star-crossed lovers who blazed across the hot Southwest in a time of drought and trouble. She wanted to be an actress, and he wanted to rob banks. In an era that gave birth to the likes of Al Capone, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie and Clyde became America's version of Romeo and Juliet---with guns Their love for each other was without rhyme or reason, their attraction and bond unbreakable. They vowed the only thing that would separate them was a bullet. A vow the Texas Rangers hoped to make come true. Bonnie, the beautiful, petite blond poet, was Clyde's equal in every respect. She was his lover and partner and was willing to die for her man. Clyde was tough and agile, a troubled soul of a man who loved only two things: robbing banks and Bonnie Parker. Whether behind the wheels of a fast-moving V-8 or in the sultry bedroom of a Texas motel, their love and lives were unparalleled in the annals of history. Theirs is more than just a story of a furious, short, and violent life---theirs is a story of unshakable love and devotion few ever experience.

Global Obscenities: Patriarchy, Capitalism, and the Lure of Cyberfantasy

Product : Global Obscenities: Patriarchy, Capitalism, and the Lure of Cyberfantasy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The New York Times devotes the cover of its magazine to America's declining interest in politics and its obsession with money, finance, and the markets. Bill Gates builds a $50 million mansion while food pantries and homeless shelters overflow with the desperate. The explosive expansion of media and cyber conglomerates creates dreamworlds while the ecology of our actual world is jeopardized. Public space and public democracy withers, as is evidenced by the fact that the closest facsimile of a town square is the local Barnes and Noble. New geographies of power are defined by sex scandals, plant closings, cyberporn, sweatshop labor, information webs, and stock market schizophrenia. Global capitalism and its cyberrelations use this chaos to construct modern forms of sexual and racial exploitation. Into this world steps Zillah Eisenstein, with a book of profound despair and yet also great hope, informed by her trademark sharp analysis and her unrelenting passion for a more humane world. Exposing the purported democratic effect of new media for the global mirage it is, Eisenstein shows how transnational capital and its patriarchal obsessions threaten us all, while at the same time creating possibilities for a new democratic society.

The Hovering Giant (Revised Edition): U.S. Responses to Revolutionary Change in Latin America, 1910-1985

Product : The Hovering Giant (Revised Edition): U.S. Responses to Revolutionary Change in Latin America, 1910-1985
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the first edition of "The Hovering Giant," Cole Blasier analyzed U.S. response to revolutions in Latin America from Madero in Mexico to Allende in Chile. He explained why U.S. leaders sponsored paramilitary units to overthrow revolutionary governments in Guatemala and Cuba and compromised their own differences with revolutionary governments in Mexico and Bolivia. The protection of private U.S. interests was part of the explanation, but Blasier gave greater emphasis to rivalry with Germany or the Soviet Union. Now in this revised edition, Blasier also examines the responses of the Carter and Reagan administrations to the Grenadian and Nicaraguan revolutions and the revolt in El Salvador. He also brings up to date the interpretation of U.S.-Cuban relations. Blasier stresses U.S. defense of its preeminent position in the Caribean Basin, as well as rivalry with the Soviet Union, to explain these later U.S. responses. Seemingly unaware of historical experience, Washington followed patterns in Central America and Grenada similar to earlier patterns in Guatemala, Cuba, and Chile even though the latter had adverse effects on U.S. security and economic interests.

Cat People

Product : Cat People
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Released in 1943, "Cat People "was the first production from the unit set up by RKO to make low-cost, high-return horror movies. Producer Val Lewton was handed the title and ordered to come up with a film to fit. He and director Jacques Tourneur created an innovative picture about a Serbian emigree in New York (Simone Simon) who's convinced she's suffering from a hereditary curse that will transform her into a panther if her passions are aroused. Kim Newman positions this 74-minute classic in terms of the horror film genre from which it emerges and against which it rebels. Through close analysis, he teases out the layers of meaning and intent that make this at once a supernatural drama and an unusual psychological study.

Product : Circle of Shaman: Healing Through Ecstasy, Rhythm, and Myth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A unique look at the healing and transformational powers that are at the heart of the shamanic ecstatic experience. "Circle of Shaman" focuses on the shamanic flight of ecstasy-- the core experience that distinguishes shamanism from other spiritual and healing practices--and how it enables the psyche to heal itself of dysfunctional patterns, allowing the Self to evolve. Based on her own experiences, Karen Berggren explores the development of rhythmic empathy to engage the ecstatic experience. Through this power the shaman seeks to maintain the community's connection between the ordinary world and the realm of the sacred. By healing themselves of dysfunctional, outworn, or egocentric patterns and beliefs shamans provide the model for the greater community to heal and transform itself. Integration of the ecstatic experience into modern culture is crucial to humanity's continued survival and unfolding destiny as partner with the earth.

Why New Systems Fail: Theory and Practice Collide

Product : Why New Systems Fail: Theory and Practice Collide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What does a Fortune 500 company implementing a multimillion dollar "off the shelf" system have in common with a 150 person firm building its own system? In each case, the organization failed to activate and utilize its system as initially conceived by senior management. These two organizations are hardly alone. On the contrary, more than three in five new systems fail. Many miss their deadlines. Others exceed their initial budgets, often by ghastly amounts. Even systems activated on time and under budget often fail to produce their expected results and almost immediately experience major problems. While the statistics are grim, there is at least some good news: This doesn't have to be the case. Organizations often lack the necessary framework to minimize the chance of system failure at three key points: before, during, and after system implementations. Why New Systems Fail provides such a framework with specific tools, tips, and questions from the perspective of a seasoned, independent consultant with more than a decade of related experience. The book examines in great detail the root causes of system failures. Case studies, examples, and lessons from actual system implementations are presented in an informative, straightforward, and very readable manner. More than a theoretical or technical text, the book offers pragmatic advice for organizations both deploying new systems and maintaining existing ones.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Through an examination of the experience of transsexuals, this book enhances understanding of how gender can and does function in powerful, complex and subtle ways. The author, who has herself been surgically reassigned, has conducted extensive interviews with transsexuals from many walks of life. Her personal experiences, which inform this book, have given her an access to her subjects that others would likely be denied. While highlighting how the gender identity of transsexuals relates to hormonal and surgical changes in the body as well as to changes in dress, the book investigates the pressures and motivations to conform to expected gender roles, and the ways in which these are affected by social, educational, and professional status. Differences in the experiences of those who change from male to female and those who change from female to male are also examined. Sex reassignment has been the focus of considerable media attention recently, as increasing numbers of people feel able to talk frankly about their personal experiences with gender dysphoria. Strides with medical technology have given transsexuals new opportunities in their lives. This book provides unique insights into how these changes are seen by those people most affected them.

Petah Coyne: Vermilion Fog

Product : Petah Coyne: Vermilion Fog
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A single sculpture by Oklahoma-born Petah Coyne might include a dozen materials ranging from the baroque to the kitsch in character-pearl-headed hatpins, ribbons, silk flowers, candies, powder, tar and feathers. Resembling enormous sentient chandeliers, they evoke a love of domestic materials, fairy tale arcana and biomorphic proliferation. "I love it when they look past maintenance," Coyne has said of her sculptures, "like a plant on somebody's porch that's kind of lost its mind." Her diverse bodies of work-from the early hanging black sand sculptures to the current works in wax and silk-share a sense of simultaneous strength and fragility. Though often unwieldy in size, they all appear vulnerable and delicate. This artist's book reflects Coyne's dialogue with organic form-whether natural or artificial, sentimental or campy. Included is an essay by critic and Art in America editor Ann Wilson Lloyd.

Most dramatically, Sacks gives us a riveting account of the appearance of a tumor in his own eye, the strange visual symptoms he observed, an experience that left him unable to perceive depth. In "The Mind's Eye, " Oliver Sacks explores some of the most fundamental facets of human experience--how we see in three dimensions, how we represent the world internally when our eyes are closed, and the remarkable, unpredictable ways that our brains find new ways of perceiving that create worlds as complete and rich as the no-longer-visible world.

Authentic Patriotism: How to Restore America's Ideals, Without Losing Our Tempers or Our Minds

Product : Authentic Patriotism: How to Restore America's Ideals, Without Losing Our Tempers or Our Minds
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "A provocative, inspiring account of our neglected American ideals and the people who are living them today--and restoring our nation's dream "Patriotism has become a loaded word: one that is wielded against people with whom we might disagree, or whose cultural origins don't match our own. But our founding fathers--Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and others--saw patriotism as a dynamic force: an act of service, in an evolving nation that defined its purpose by offering all people a better way of life. In "Authentic Patriotism, "author and award-winning journalist Stephen P. Kiernan explores the original ideals that have been lost in our current climate, where war and economic turmoil have eroded our sense of civic obligation. Kiernan describes "a nation adrift," out of touch with its origins--and then introduces a range of inspiring people who have revived our national purpose by taking action: - The out-of-work college graduate who led an economic and environmental renewal of her blighted home community. - The retired executive who pioneered a revolutionary concept in health care for people without insurance. - The minister who created a legendary choir, with the goal of uniting children of different races, genders, and classes in one voice. - The family who donated their daughter's heart, so that another might live. These and other "New Americans" are profiled in a book that offers hope, ideas, examples, and practical resources for readers who want to renew the American spirit.

Nationalism on the World Stage: Cultural Performance at the Olympic Games

Product : Nationalism on the World Stage: Cultural Performance at the Olympic Games
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Beyond the realm of sports and spectacle, states host the Olympic Games for political, social, and cultural reasons. In particular, organizers have used the Olympics as an opportunity to redefine and reassert their national identities through performance. The hosts present an artistic rendering of their national identity to domestic and international audiences through the pageantry of the opening and closing ceremonies. Nationalism on the World Stage examines the relationship between nationalism and the Olympics by weaving together current understandings of nationalism and applying these notions to displays of national identity at Olympic ceremonies from 1980 to 2006. Using tactics such as historical revision, indoctrination, and custodianship, hosts of the Games have re-told their official state identities and histories through performances. Through examples including the United States, Canada, Norway, Russia, Spain, and Japan, Philip A. D'Agati establishes a new scope of nationalism, cultural performance, and international festival and provides new insights into studies of nationalism.

Description : In her fifties, Mrs. Frances Trollope became famous overnight for her book attacking the United States. Twenty-five years later, she sharpens her pen for her most controversial work yet -- the biography of her old friend, the radical and feminist Fanny Wright. She recalls the 1820s when the young Fanny erupted into the Trollopes' sleepy English cottage like a volcano, her red hair flying, her talk aflame with utopian ideals. Before long, Wright convinced her to follow her to America, a journey of extreme penury, frontier hardships, and the most satisfying sensual romance of Frances Trollope's life. Fanny: A Fiction is a wonderful new departure for Edmund White -- a quirky, dazzling story of two extraordinary nineteenth-century women, and a vibrant, questioning exploration of the nature of idealism, the clay feet of heroes, and the illusory power of the American dream.

Description : "For the Love of It" is a story not only of one intimate struggle between a man and his cello, but also of the larger struggle between a society obsessed with success and individuals who choose challenging hobbies that yield no payoff except the love of it. "If, in truth, Booth is an amateur player now in his fifth decade of amateuring, he is certainly not an amateur thinker about music and culture. . . . Would that all of us who think and teach and care about music could be so practical and profound at the same time."--Peter Kountz, "New York Times Book Review" " T]his book serves as a running commentary on the nature and depth of this love, and all the connections it has formed in his life. . . . The music, he concludes, has become part of him, and that is worth the price."--Clea Simon, "Boston Globe" "The book will be read with delight by every well-meaning amateur who has ever struggled. . . . Even general readers will come away with a valuable lesson for living: Never mind the outcome of a possibly vain pursuit; in the passion that is expended lies the glory."--John von Rhein, "Chicago Tribune" "Hooray for amateurs And huzzahs to Wayne Booth for honoring them as they deserve. "For the Love of It" celebrates amateurism with genial philosophizing and pointed cultural criticism, as well as with personal reminiscences and self-effacing wit."--James Sloan Allen, "USA Today" "Wayne Booth, the prominent American literary critic, has written the only sustained study of the interior experience of musical amateurism in recent years, "For the Love of It," It] succeeds as a meditation on the tension between the centrality of music in Booth's life, both inner and social, and its marginality. . . . It causes the reader to acknowledge the heterogeneity of the pleasures involved in making music; the satisfaction in playing well, the pride one takes in learning a difficult piece or passage or technique, the buzz in one's fingertips and the sense of completeness with the bow when the turn is done just right, the pleasure of playing with others, the comfort of a shared society, the joy of not just hearing, but making, the music, the wonder at the notes lingering in the air."--"Times Literary Supplement"

Taliaferro: Breaking Barriers from the NFL Draft to the Ivory Tower

Product : Taliaferro: Breaking Barriers from the NFL Draft to the Ivory Tower
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : George Taliaferro was a star player on Indiana University's first great football team of 1945 -- two years before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's racial barrier. Four years later, in 1949, he became the first African American drafted by the NFL when the Chicago Bears expressed their interest in him. Rather than play for his childhood dream team, Taliaferro opted to honor the contract he had previously signed with the Los Angeles Dons of the All American Football Conference. Taliaferro would eventually go on to play in the NFL for teams such as the New York Yanks, Dallas Texans, Baltimore Colts, and Philadelphia Eagles. More than a biography of one individual, this is a story of historic achievement and inspiration.

Straddling the Border: Immigration Policy and the Ins

Product : Straddling the Border: Immigration Policy and the Ins
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "This is the single most significant new work on the multiple missions of INS (a proposed division of the new Department of Homeland Security) and the complex, highly political environment the agency operates within.... A MUST read not only for scholars and students of immigration policy and politics, but also for all concerned with the complexities of policy implementation and regulatory enforcement. Magan a has crafted a gem." -- John G. Bretting, Associate Professor, Political Science, and Director, Master of Public Administration Program, College of Charleston With the dual and often conflicting responsibilities of deterring illegal immigration and providing services to legal immigrants, the U. S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) is a bureaucracy beset with contradictions. Critics fault the agency for failing to stop the entry of undocumented workers from Mexico. Agency staff complain that harsh enforcement policies discourage legal immigrants from seeking INS aid, while ever-changing policy mandates from Congress and a lack of funding hinder both enforcement and service activities. In this book, Lisa Magan a convincingly argues that a profound disconnection between national-level policymaking and local-level policy implementation prevents the INS from effectively fulfilling either its enforcement or its service mission. She begins with a history and analysis of the making of immigration policy which reveals that federal and state lawmakers respond more to the concerns, fears, and prejudices of the public than to the realities of immigration or the needs of the INS. She then illustrates the effects of shifting and conflicting mandates throughcase studies of INS implementation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, Proposition 187, and the 1996 Welfare Reform and Responsibility Act and their impact on Mexican immigrants. Magan a concludes with fact-based recommendations to improve the agency's performance.

A Rare and Precious Thing: The Possibilities and Pitfalls of Working with a Spiritual Teacher

Product : A Rare and Precious Thing: The Possibilities and Pitfalls of Working with a Spiritual Teacher
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Never have there been so many spiritual seekers and so much readily available information about paths to self-fulfillment. Yet this book is the first in-depth exploration of how to evaluate spiritual teachers, what to expect from them, and what to be wary of, as well as whether it is necessary to study and practice with a guru or possible to achieve the same thing on your own. John Kain introduces us to teachers (and their students) from a wide range of traditions: Murat Yagan, a ninety-year-old Circassian teacher of Sufism and Kebzeh in a rural community in British Columbia; Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the nineteenth-generation keeper of the sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nation; Joan Chittister, OSB, a sister at a Benedictine monastery in Erie, Pennsylvania, an ardent advocate for peace and justice, a feminist, and a questioner of institutional thinking; Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal movement, enthusiastic teacher of Hasidism, and past holder of the World Wisdom chair at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado; Gehlek Rimpoche, a renegade but beloved Tibetan Buddhist teacher whose aim is to dispense with superficial traditions and integrate the essence of Buddhist teaching into Western culture; Sudha Puri, the American-born head of Ananda Ashram north of Los Angeles and the Vedanta Centre in Massachusetts, in the lineage of the Indian sage Ramakrishna; John Daido Loori, the abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery in New York's Catskill Mountains, who is known for using photography and the arts as bridges to awareness; and Adyashanti, a charismatic American teacher in Los Gatos, California, who has broken away from all established traditions. Woven throughout Kain's detailed profiles of the teachers themselves is information on finding a teacher, life in a spiritual community, dealing with problems like disillusionment and abuse of power, and the meeting (or lack thereof) between Western psychology and religion. A teacher's job is not actually to give us anything but to take away the unnecessary baggage we accumulate in our minds that obscures the truth. It is a rare and precious thing to work with someone whose purpose is to cajole us into opening our eyes and experiencing a saner reality. Kain offers would-be pilgrims an inside look at this relationship and what extraordinary things can result from it.
