Fractals, Scaling and Growth Far from Equilibrium

Product : Fractals, Scaling and Growth Far from Equilibrium
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book describes the progress that has been made towards the development of a comprehensive understanding of the formation of complex, disorderly patterns under conditions far from equilibrium. The application of fractal geometry and scaling concepts to the quantitative description and understanding of structure formed under non-equilibrium conditions is described. Self-similar fractals, multi-fractals and scaling methods are discussed, with examples, to facilitate applications in the physical sciences. Computer simulations and experimental studies are emphasised, but the author also includes discussion of theoretical advances in the subject. Much of the book deals with diffusion-limited growth processes and the evolution of rough surfaces, although a broad range of other applications is also included. The techniques and topics will be relevant to graduate students and researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering and the earth sciences, interested in applying the ideas of fractals and scaling.

French Paintings of the Fifteenth Through the Eighteenth Century

Product : French Paintings of the Fifteenth Through the Eighteenth Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Georges de La Tour's haunting depiction of a repentant Mary Magdalen gazing into a mirror by candlelight; Jean Simeon Chardin's perfectly balanced image of a young boy making a house of cards; Jean Honore Fragonard's monumental suite of landscapes showing aristocrats at play in picturesque gardens--these are among the familiar and beloved masterpieces in the National Gallery of Art, which houses one of the most important collections of French old master paintings outside France. This lavishly illustrated book, written by leading scholars and the result of years of research and technical analysis, catalogues nearly one hundred paintings, from works by Francois Clouet in the sixteenth century to paintings by Elisabeth Louise Vigee Le Brun in the eighteenth. French art before the revolution is characterized by an astonishing variety of styles and themes and by a consistently high quality of production, the result of an efficient training system developed by the traditional guilds and the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, founded in 1648 by King Louis XIV. The National Gallery collection reflects this quality and diversity, featuring excellent examples by all the leading painters: ideal landscapes by Claude Lorrain and biblical subjects by Nicolas Poussin, two artists who spent most of their careers in Rome; deeply moving religious works by La Tour, Sebastien Bourdon, and Simon Vouet; portraits of the grandest format (Philippe de Champaigne's "Omer Talon") and the most intimate (Nicolas de Largillierre's "Elizabeth Throckmorton"); and familiar scenes of daily life by the Le Nain brothers in the seventeenth century and Chardin in the eighteenth. The Gallery's collection is especially notable for its holdings of eighteenth-century painting, from Jean Antoine Watteau to Hubert Robert, and including marvelous suites of paintings by Francois Boucher and Fragonard. All these works are explored in detailed, readable entries that will appeal as much to the general art lover as to the specialist.

Product : Rostock, City by the Sea: The Story of a Young German
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the account of a young man who grew up in Germany during the period of the Third Reich. Under the doctrine of the Nazi regime and the influence it had especially for the young, the author nevertheless kept his sense of right and wrong. In vivid detail Peter Haase describes the war years and how they affected him and his family. He records Nazi propaganda, shortages, air raids and the descent toward final defeat, as seen by an adolescent between the ages of eleven and seventeen. Ten years of post war restlessness and struggle follow in the wake of the destruction of the German economy. The rebirth of his homeland does not give Peter the opportunity to build a prosperous future for himself. He decides to seek his fortune in a far-away land.

The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability

Product : The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Designing for sustainability is an innovation shaping both the design industry and design education today.Yet architects, product designers, and other key professionals in this new field have so far lacked a resource that addresses their sensibilities and concerns. "The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability" now explores the basic principles, concepts, and practice of sustainable design in a visually sophisticated and engaging style. The book tackles not only the ecological aspects of sustainable design-designers' choice of materials and manufacturing processes have a tremendous impact on the natural world-but also the economic and cultural elements involved. The" Atlas" is neither a how-to manual nor collection of recipes for sustainable design, but a compendium of fresh approaches to sustainability that designers can incorporate into daily thinking and practice. Illuminating many facets of this exciting field, the book offers ideas on how to harmonize human and natural systems, and then explores practical options for making the business of design more supportive of long-term sustainability. An examination of the ethical dimensions of sustainable development in our public and private lives is the theme present throughout. Like other kinds of atlases, "The Designer's Atlas of Sustainability" illustrates its subject, but it goes far beyond its visual appeal, stimulating design solutions for "development that cultivates environmental and social conditions that will support human well-being indefinitely."

Albert Camus the Algerian: Colonialism, Terrorism, Justice

Product : Albert Camus the Algerian: Colonialism, Terrorism, Justice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In these original readings of Albert Camus' novels, short stories, and political essays, David Carroll concentrates on Camus' conflicted relationship with his Algerian background and finds important critical insights into questions of justice, the effects of colonial oppression, and the deadly cycle of terrorism and counterterrorism that characterized the Algerian War and continues to surface in the devastation of postcolonial wars today. During France's "dirty war" in Algeria, Camus called for an end to the violence perpetrated against civilians by both France and the Algerian National Liberation Front (FLN) and supported the creation of a postcolonial, multicultural, and democratic Algeria. His position was rejected by most of his contemporaries on the Left and has, ironically, earned him the title of colonialist sympathizer as well as the scorn of important postcolonial critics. Carroll rescues Camus' work from such criticism by emphasizing the Algerian dimensions of his literary and philosophical texts and by highlighting in his novels and short stories his understanding of both the injustice of colonialism and the tragic nature of Algeria's struggle for independence. By refusing to accept that the sacrifice of innocent human lives can ever be justified, even in the pursuit of noble political goals, and by rejecting simple, ideological binaries (West vs. East, Christian vs. Muslim, "us" vs. "them," good vs. evil), Camus' work offers an alternative to the stark choices that characterized his troubled times and continue to define our own. "What they didn't like, was the Algerian, in him," Camus wrote of his fictional double in "The First Man." Not only should "the Algerian" in Camus be "liked," Carroll argues, but the Algerian dimensions of his literary and political texts constitute a crucial part of their continuing interest. Carroll's reading also shows why Camus' critical perspective has much to contribute to contemporary debates stemming from the global "war on terror."

Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature

Product : Dwarfism: Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Profound Short Stature
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This landmark volume is the first to trace the exciting developments in the field of dwarfism research and treatment over the past century -- particularly during the past fifty years. Dr. Betty M. Adelson, a psychologist, has unearthed and synthesized the most significant information about dwarfing conditions, from articles written a century ago to current books and specialized databases. Highlighting the outstanding contributions of Dr. Victor McKusick and several of his colleagues, Dr. Adelson reveals how dwarfism specialists have helped redefine the nature of medical care -- transforming it from an authoritarian enterprise into a holistic, collaborative venture among physicians, affected individuals, and their families. The parent of an adult dwarf daughter, Adelson examines the social forces that affect the dwarfism community. She offers personal descriptions of the day-to-day challenges dwarf individuals face and portrays their accomplishments. Insightful and accessible, this work will prove a valuable resource for affected individuals, their families, and medical professionals -- physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, social workers, psychologists, and medical students.

The book features a host of international regattas and glamorous yachting circuits that bear witness to a prolific number of admiring eyes on polished brass, varnished teak, and hand-stitched canvas.

Product : Tonto's Revenge: Reflections on American Indian Culture and Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How do Native Americans maintain their identity and culture in a hostile society, and to what end? "Tonto's Revenge" is a passionate attempt by a leading Native American scholar to reassess the Indian world view and its importance to all Americans. His deeply felt essays project a vision of how Native Americans can recapture the power of their cultural legacies. "What we have witnessed over the last five hundred years," states Rennard Strickland, "is the domination of an ideologically superior world view (that of the Native Americans) by a technologically advanced but spiritually bankrupt civilization (that of the discoverers)." He proposes a reversal of this pattern, arguing that "values must prevail over technology," especially if people are to attain balance and peace with themselves and their surroundings. He delineates the enduring cultural heritage of Indians in essays on law, literature, history, art, film, and culture.

Seeing the Unseen: Dr. Harold E. Edgerton and the Wonders of Strobe Alley

Product : Seeing the Unseen: Dr. Harold E. Edgerton and the Wonders of Strobe Alley
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For over 60 years, the ultra high-speed photography of Harold E. "Doc" Edgerton has stopped time. His work makes visible the elusive gestures and trajectories of our world in action: from the dripping of water to a bullet's path. His experiments with stroboscopic flashes resulted in hundreds of--and not incidentally beautiful--images of a realm beyond human vision. Edgerton, a lifelong teacher and researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is today celebrated as both a scientific innovator, and also as an astonishing photographer. "Seeing the Unseen" is an engaging new study of Edgertons's life and science. Designed to look like one of Doc's own laboratory notebooks, the book places his work in its historical technological context, and clarifies his motivations and methods. Edgerton, with his own plain-spoken and witty brand of genius, is vividly portrayed in a biographical essay by Douglas Collins. It covers Edgerton's early years in Nebraska, his beginnings at MIT as a graduate student in electrical engineering in 1926, the decades of inspired research and teaching in"Strobe Alley" (his MIT lab), and his fruitful collaborations with everyone from Hollywood filmmakers to Jacques Cousteau, until his death in 1990. "Seeing the Unseen" is profusely and colorfully illustrated with photographs of and by Harold Edgerton, and well as easily-understood technical diagrams of his methods. Included in the book is a Portfolio Photo CD, produced by George Eastman House and curator James Sheldon, which contains a gallery of 150 of Edgerton's most striking images, and is compatible with any CD-ROM player. "Seeing the Unseen: Dr. Harold E. Edgerton and the Wonders of Strobe Alley" is the official catalog for an exhibition of the same name currrently on display at George Eastman House in Rochester, and traveling to Winston-Salem NC, Seattle, Boston, Middlebury VT, and San Diego through 1997.

The Dynamics of the Language Classroom

Product : The Dynamics of the Language Classroom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Traditionally, the classroom has been seen as a place where language learning takes place in a linear manner on a fairly predictable input-output model. Recent research, however, has portrayed the classroom as a complex environment which is influenced by a wide range of attitudinal and contextual factors. The Dynamics of the Language Classroom seeks to explore the dynamic and frequently unpredictable nature of the language classroom. It does this by examining the various conceptions of language, learning, and of the classroom which influence participants' attitudes and actions. The interaction between methodology and context and the role of local cultures of learning is also examined. It then concludes with a number of recommendations as to how language educators may work constructively with the complex dynamics of classroom teaching and learning.

War and Press Freedom: The Problem of Prerogative Power

Product : War and Press Freedom: The Problem of Prerogative Power
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : War and Press Freedom: The Problem of Prerogative Power is a groundbreaking and provocative study of one of the most perplexing civil liberties issues in American history: What authority does or should the government have to control press coverage and commentary in wartime? First Amendment scholar Jeffery A. Smith shows convincingly that no such extraordinary power exists under the Constitution, and that officials have had to rely on claiming the existence of an autocratic "higher law" of survival. Smith carefully surveys the development of statutory restrictions and military regulations for the news media from the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791 through the Gulf War of 1991. He concludes that the armed forces can justify refusal to divulge a narrow range of defense secrets, but that imposing other restrictions is unwise, unnecessary, and unconstitutional. In any event, as electronic communication becomes almost impossible to constrain, soldiers and journalists must learn how to respect each other's obligations in a democratic system.

Beyond Architecture: Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin--America, Australia, India

Product : Beyond Architecture: Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin--America, Australia, India
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A lasting record of the creativity and the legacy of a remarkable pair of architects, Beyond Architecture presents a holistic view of the lives and work of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney. Encompassing the disciplines of town planning, landscape architecture, interior design, and building design, the Griffins' work spanned thirty years and three continents. These essays by American and Australian scholars address the Griffins' architectural oeuvre -- more than 350 built and unbuilt projects -- as well as the philosophical, ae sthetic, and ideological convictions that shaped their vision. The Griffins' contribution to architecture, particularly in America, has always been somewhat eclipsed by the reputation of Frank Lloyd Wright, for whom they both worked in Chicago. This book, which doubles as an exhibition catalog, consolidates their status as two of the twentieth century's most important American architects.

The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders: An Integrative Perspective

Product : The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders: An Integrative Perspective
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There is a large body of research that provides guidance for those working with offenders on how they should be treated once they are in the correctional system. The problem is that most, if not all this research has been conducted on all male populations and it is assumed that women offenders are the same. However, women have different needs and support systems than men in some areas of their lives and it is unclear whether all research based on men can be generalized in this way. The book provides a review of the research literature to guide evidence-based practice in the assessment and treatment of adult female offenders. An historical overview of women's crime and imprisonment will be followed by a global review of various theories of female criminality. The remainder of the book reviews the psychology of criminal conduct, with a specific focus on three psychological principles of effective intervention: risk, need and responsivity. Respectively, these principles set the "who," "what" and "how" for correctional intervention.

Verstehen: The Uses of Understanding in the Social Sciences

Product : Verstehen: The Uses of Understanding in the Social Sciences
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In late nineteenth-century German academic circles, the term verstehen (literally, understanding or comprehension) came to be associated with the view that social phenomena must be understood from the point of view of the social actor. Advocates were opposed by positivists who stressed the unity of method between the social and natural sciences and an external, experimental, and quantitative knowledge. Although modified over time, the dispute has persisted and still defines many debates in the field of philosophy of social sciences. In this volume, Michael Martin offers a critical appraisal of verstehen as a method of verification and discovery as well as a necessary condition for understanding. In its strongest forms, verstehen entails subjectively reliving the experience of the social actor or at least rethinking his or her thoughts. Martin's opening chapter offers a reconsideration of the debate between the classical verstehen theorists -- Wilhelm Dilthey, Max Weber, R.G. Collingwood -- and the positivists. Chapters 2 and 3 deal with positivist critiques of verstehen as a method of social scientific verification and understanding. In the subsequent chapters, Martin considers contemporary varieties of the verstehen position and argues that they conflict with the pluralistic nature of social science. Chapter 4 discusses Peter Winch's and William Dray's variants of verstehen, while chapters 5 through 9 consider recent theorists -- Karl Popper, Charles Taylor, Clifford Geertz -- whose work can be characterized in verstehenist terms. In his conclusion Martin defines the limitations of the classical and recent verstehen positions and proposes methodological pluralism. This volume is theonly comprehensive and sustained critique of verstehen theory currently available. It will be of interest to sociologists, philosophers, political scientists, and anthropologists.

Beyond Listening: Learning the Secret Language of Focus Groups

Product : Beyond Listening: Learning the Secret Language of Focus Groups
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A groundbreaking guide to making one of marketing's most important resources more effective When kids in a Nabisco focus group told researchers that they always separated their Oreos before they ate them, the researchers recommended that the company develop a cookie that couldn't be taken apart. Fortunately, in this case, Nabisco didn't heed the researchers' advice. Each year, companies spend a billion dollars on focus groups designed to ferret out consumer motivation, and, according to expert Bonnie Goebert, in many cases they're throwing their money away. In this fascinating book, Goebert, a highly respected moderator with three decades of experience with focus groups, explains what's wrong with how companies use the information. More importantly, she draws on her own experiences with clients like the "New York Times," Tropicana, Maxwell House, Colgate, Maybelline, Lipton, Federal Express, and scores of other prestigious accounts to provide simple clear-cut guidelines on how companies of just about any size can use focus groups to capture the hearts and minds of consumers. Bonnie Goebert (Southampton, NY) heads her own focus group consulting firm.

Professor Danielson builds moral robots that do better than amoral competitors in a tournament of games like the Prisoners Dilemma and Chicken. The book thus engages in current controversies over the adequacy of the received theory of rational choice. It sides with Gauthier and McClennan, who extend the devices of rational choice to include moral constraint. Artificial Morality goes further, by promoting communication, testing and copying of principles and by stressing empirical tests.

Product : Feminist Interp. Mary Daly -Ppr
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This open-ended anthology is a journey into the very canon that Mary Daly has argued to be patriarchal and demeaning to women. This volume deauthorizes the official canon of Western philosophy and disrupts a related story told by some feminists who claim that Daly's work is unworthy of re-reading because it contains fatal errors. The editors and contributors attempt to prove that Mary Daly is located in the Western intellectual tradition. Daly may be highly critical of conventional Western epistemological and theological traditions, but she nevertheless appropriates themes "out-of-context" for the building of her own systematic philosophy. The following are just a few of the many themes explored in this volume: -- the question of subjectivity understood as an ongoing process of be-coming -- the ambiguity of the need for feminists of colonial nations to speak out about violence against women in other parts of the world while that speaking carries with it the stamp of a colonial location -- the territoriality of lesbian and women's space -- the theological dimensions of twentieth-century Western philosophy.

Hannibal: Rome's Greatest Enemy

Product : Hannibal: Rome's Greatest Enemy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hannibal's enduring reputation as a man and as a general is due to his enemies' fascination with him. The way his legend was shaped and became ingrained in Greek and Roman awareness is one of the main themes of this book. Under Hannibal's leadership, Carthage came close to dominating the western Mediterranean; his total victory would have changed the course of history. That he was a brilliant general is unquestioned and his strategy and tactics have been studied as real-life lessons in war even into the modern era (Norman Schwartzkopf is a fan). And yet on at least three occasions (in 217, 216 and 207 BC) a different strategic choice might have brought that elusive overall victory. This book examines the inherent contradictions here, as well as the puzzle of the final battle of Zama. Hannibal's political career, as third leader of a highly successful republican dynasty, tends to be less appreciated than his military prowess. His achievements as civilian leader (suffete) of Carthage in 196-5 BC have been virtually overlooked. The issue of whether he might indeed have changed history had he avoided conflict with Rome by postponing it - as the Greek historian Polybius believed he should have - and concentrating first on Carthage's own prosperity and safety, is explored in this volume as vigorously as the military questions. Dexter Hoyos is Professor of Classics and Ancient History in the University of Sydney and author of Unplanned Wars: the Origins of the First and Second Punic Wars (1998) and Hannibal's Dynasty: Power and Politics in the Western Mediterranean, 247-183 BC (2003).

It is the story of how Joe's battles with racism, sexism, poverty, and personal demons became the catalyst for her first poems and allowed her to reclaim her aboriginal heritage. Today, her story continues: as she moves into old age, Joe writes that her lifelong spiritual quest is ever deepening.

Description : .,."represents a thought-provoking contribution to the burgeoning literature on adoption, and will be a valuable resource for any who are currently working in this area, or in the fields of kinship or transnationalism in general." Melissa Demian in JRAI "Transnational adoption is growing phenomenon and Norway has led the way in its legal and social development. In this pioneering study, Norwegian scholar, Signe Howell, brings to the subject not only anthropological insight but the personal experience of an adoptive parent. Her remarkable book is based on comprehensive research both in Norway and in the countries of origin of adopted children, throwing new light on the way that the children identify as Norwegians despite the tendency of adults to associate with their birth places...." John R. Gillis, Rutgers University "Howell's fascinating work on transnational adoption provides real insight into its experiential, cultural, psychological and legal complexities worldwide and has important implications for our theories of kinship and personhood.... The book deserves to be read not only by anthropologists interested in kinship, but by everyone who wants to understand children and to do what is best for them, including policy-makers, developmental and child psychologists, educators and social workers." Christina Toren, Director, iFAR, Brunel University "The Kinning of Foreigners takes the literature on adoption into an entirely new realm by linking theories of identity and of kinship to changes in the practices and ideologies of moving children from one nation to another. ... T]he book shows how rhetoric developed in the West forms understandings of the child, of family, and of kinshipthroughout the world-a modern version of imperialism. Throughout her scrupulous discussion of national and international policies, laws, and competing interests, Howell never loses sight of the intimate individual aspect of adoption.... The book should be on the shelves of experts, scholars, lawyers, politicians-and, of course, any person who has ever had the exhilarating experience of kinning, or creating a relationship that permanently, transforms the self."

Approaches to Global Governance Theory

Product : Approaches to Global Governance Theory
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As the debate over global governance heats up, Approaches to Global Governance Theory offers a guide to this new terrain. The contributors advocate approaches to global governance that recognize fundamental political, economic, technological, and cultural dynamics, that engage social and political theory, and that go beyond conventional international relations theory. We are offered here a guide to this new terrain. Beginning with a chapter tracing the emergence of global governance analysis in the 1990s, Approaches to Global Governance Theory also responds to alternative theoretical conceptions. James N. Rosenau explores the ontology of global governance. In addition, Robert Latham develops a critique of Rosenau's thinking, while Michael G. Schechter examines the limits of the Commission for Global Governance's widely publicized 1995 report and Ronen Palan asks critically, "Who is to be governed by global governance?"

Daring to Find Our Names: The Search for Lesbigay Library History

Product : Daring to Find Our Names: The Search for Lesbigay Library History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Outlines theoretical and methodological problems in documenting lesbigay history generally (and specifically, the history of lesbigay professionals, particularly those in the feminized professions like librarianship). This book will appeal especially to historians of traditionally underrepresented populations (women, Native Americans, African Americans, lesbigays). In particular, chapters on methodological problems in lesbigay research, separatism, and biases created by gender bias will pull together for the first time integrated feminist/radical perspectives on library history. The authors call for more responsible treatment of such subjects as the outing of historical figures, and conversely, a more open approach to research on gender outlaws in the workplace. Heralds a new era in historical research in which the collective subjective of a particular group of hidden minority voices is given front stage. Leading scholars from a variety of disciplines examine the theoretical and methodological problems of lesbigay history and apply them to librarianship, one of the despised feminine professions. Founders and early leaders of the Task Force for Gay Liberation of the American Library Association, the oldest professionally endorsed gay task force in the world, reflect on their early struggles to gain recognition, and describe how sexism, homophobia, and discrimination have taken a toll in their personal and professional lives. These stories challenge the notion that libraries have unequivocally defended the intellectual freedom and integrity of all their citizens, and provide a poignant counterpoint to the culture wars and political correctness debates within the lesbigay community. Because of societal taboos, until recently, lesbigay history has been invisible to the majority of its participants. Directors and workers in some of the world's leading gay and lesbian archives also share their experiences in collecting and making acccessible ephemera and other partial historical remains to restore a heritage and identity to lesbigay citizens.

The Neutral French: The Exiles of Nova Scotia

Product : The Neutral French: The Exiles of Nova Scotia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many scholars believe that The Neutral French: The Exiles of Nova Scotia, published in 1841, inspired Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to write his famous poem Evangeline, which was published six years later. Indeed, the author, Mrs. Williams, longed for such an event and even hoped that someone might "drag forth from the lumber of ages some important facts connected with them, as yet unsung, and present them in a fairer form." Certainly, Longfellow succeeded; yet Mrs. Williams did not fail. She, too, presents an emotional examination of the plight of the Acadians and their exile from Nova Scotia. Drawing from various primary sources, including the archives of the Massachusetts Historical Society, Mrs. Williams deftly weaves facts with fiction to create a compelling tale of the tumultuous life of Pauline St. Pierre . . . a tale made all the more striking for its truthfulness. Also available are the original poem Evangeline, the renowned Pamphile Le May French translation Evangeline, and the 1929 Finis Fox adaptation, Evangeline: A Novel . All are published by Pelican.

Most of the guides are devoted to a single opera, which is described in detail--with many articles that cover its history and information about the composer and his times. The complete libretto is included in both the original language and in a modern singing translation--except where the opera was written in English. Each has a thematic guide to the most important musical themes in musical notation and each guide is lavishly illustrated. They also contain a bibliography and a discography which is updated at each reprint. The ENO guides are widely regarded as the best series of their kind and excellent value.

Product : Quo Vadis, Evangelicalism?: Perspectives on the Past, Direction for the Future: Presidential Addresses from the First Fifty Years
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An invaluable documentation of evangelical heritage and vision that leaves a vital legacy for present and future generations of thinkers and leaders. Quo vadis?-Where are you going?-is an appropriate question to ask of the current evangelical movement. To get a bearing on evangelical thought and assess future directions, the editor of the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Andreas J. Kostenberger, has gathered selected addresses from past presidents of the ETS and contributed a thorough introduction and probing epilogue of his own. Covering the early years, the maturing movement, and recent times, the addresses-which span JETS' first fifty years-include discussions of foundational doctrinal issues, exegetical and theological practice and methodology, and current concerns delivered by some of evangelicalism's most distinguished leaders. These presidential addresses give today's scholars a much fuller and deeper appreciation of the history of evangelicalism and their place within it. Readers will also experience great hope for the future of a movement whose best days, by God's grace, are yet to come.

Description : The significance of shame as a critical human emotion has come to be recognized in the fields of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and psychology. Scenes of Shame brings this body of theory to bear on literary and philosophical representations of shame. The contributors explore the role of shame as an important affect in the psychodynamics of a wide range of literary and philosophical works, including essays on Kierkegaard, Hawthorne, George Eliot, Nietzsche, Lawrence, Faulkner, Sexton, and Toni Morrison. The book also includes an analysis of the problem of shame in student lifewriting in the classroom, and testifies to the importance of affect in philosophy and literature, as well as to the way in which imaginative writers can clarify and enrich our understanding of an emotion that, as Sylvan Tomkins claims",strikes deepest" into the human heart.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Beginning in 1882, many Russian and Eastern-European Jews who fled to the United States settled in the "West Side Flats" in St. Paul, Minnesota. The area once stretched from the banks of the Mississippi River to the cliffs of the West Side Hills, about 320 acres in all, but has since fallen victim to the vagaries of the mighty river and the progress of "urban renewal." The Lost Jewish Community of the West Side Flats: 1882-1962 takes the reader on a pictorial tour down memory lane. The families, houses, businesses, streets, and synagogues-all vanished now-are brought back to life through vintage photographs from the archives of the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest, the Minnesota Historical Society, and the private collections of many former residents. This is a memoir of a historic neighborhood that can no longer be visited.

Product : sendmail 8.13 Companion
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : If you had a list of the words used to describe sendmail, they'd probably include reliable, flexible, configurable, complex, monolithic, and daunting. But you're not likely to find the word easy. Even seasoned sendmail pros are sometimes frustrated by the intricacies of sendmail's configuration files. With a little determination and the help of a good reference book, like "sendmail," Third Edition, you can master this demanding program. But when there's a significant point release, like sendmail V8.13, where do you turn? An excellent companion to our popular "sendmail," Third Edition, the "sendmail 8.13 Companion" provides a timely way to document the improvements in V8.13 in parallel with its release. The book highlights the important changes in the latest update to sendmail, pointing out not just what is handy or nice to have, but what's critical in getting the best behavior from sendmail. This is especially important now that spam is on the rise, and because mobile technology requires roving laptops to use encrypted connections. Not surprisingly, many of the changes and additions to V8.13 have been driven by the ongoing fight against spam. Anyone concerned about spam--and who isn't?--will benefit greatly by upgrading to V8.13 sendmail. Among its many enhancements, V8.13 includes new routines that support the SPF sending site authentication standard (in the Milter library), simultaneous connection control, high connection rate control, and finer tuning of SASL parameters. The additions to the Milter library, alone, make upgrading worthwhile, but sendmail's connection control makes it a no-brainer. The key to understanding them is the "sendmail 8.13 Companion," The book isdivided into twenty-five chapters that parallel the chapters in the third edition of the "sendmail" book. For instance, if you're interested in Options configuration (Chapter 24 in sendmail), you'll turn to Chapter 24 in your companion volume to find out what's new in V8.13. For a simple dot release (8.12 to 8.13), V8.13 sendmail has added more features, options, and fundamental changes than any other single dot release has included. If you need to set up or manage sendmail, you'll want this companion volume close at hand. Even if you aren't ready to upgrade to V8.13, you'll find the key to understanding them is the "sendmail 8.13 Companion" a useful guide to understanding and staying current with the latest changes in sendmail.

The Fields of Electronics: Understanding Electronics Using Basic Physics

Product : The Fields of Electronics: Understanding Electronics Using Basic Physics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A practical new approach that brings together circuit theory and field theory for the practicing engineer To put it frankly, the traditional education of most engineers and scientists leaves them often unprepared to handle many of the practical problems they encounter. The Fields of Electronics: Understanding Electronics Using Basic Physics offers a highly original correction to this state of affairs. Most engineers learn circuit theory and field theory separately. Electromagnetic field theory is an important part of basic physics, but because it is a very mathematical subject, the connection to everyday problems is not emphasized. Circuit theory, on the other hand, is by its nature very practical. However, circuit theory cannot describe the nature of a facility, the interconnection of many pieces of hardware, or the power grid that interfaces each piece of hardware. The Fields of Electronics offers a unique approach that brings the physics and the circuit theory together into a seamless whole for today's practicing engineers. With a clear focus on the real-world problems confronting the practitioner in the field, the book thoroughly details the principles that apply to: * Capacitors, inductors, resistors, and transformers * Utility power and circuit concepts * Grounding and shielding * Radiation * Analog and digital signals * Facilities and sites Written with very little mathematics, and requiring only some background in electronics, this book provides an eminently useful new way to understand the subject of electronics that will simplify the work of every novice, experienced engineer, and scientist.

Socialism Revised and Modernized: The Case for Pragmatic Market Socialism

Product : Socialism Revised and Modernized: The Case for Pragmatic Market Socialism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume advocates pragmatic market socialism and offers a penetrating critique of the entire range of capitalist apologetics. As James A. Yunker envisions it, pragmatic market socialism would virtually duplicate the everyday economic functions of market capitalist economies, such as the United States' economy. However, public ownership of large, established corporations would enable profits to be distributed among the entire labor force rather than going largely to a class of inheriting rentiers. Pragmatic market socialism would be a means of enhancing economic justice and fairness without sacrificing the efficiency advantages of free enterprise and the market economy. Yunker presents both theoretical and empirical evidence countering various widely-accepted justifications for capitalism. He argues that much of what passes for "anti-socialist thought" does not actually address socialism at all but rather the various adverse historical correlates of socialism such as the Communist one-party state, Soviet-style central planning, and the Scandinavian welfare state. This book will be of great interest to economists specializing in comparative economic systems to political scientists with an interest in the evolution of political/economic systems.

American Magic and Dread: The Fiction of Don Delillo

Product : American Magic and Dread: The Fiction of Don Delillo
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Don DeLillo once remarked to an interviewer that his intention is to use "the whole picture, the whole culture," of America. Since the publication of his first novel Americana in 1971, DeLillo has explored modern American culture through a series of acclaimed novels, including White Noise (1985; winner of the American Book Award), Libra (1988), and Underworld (1997). For Mark Osteen, the most bracing and unsettling feature of DeLillo's work is that, although his fiction may satirize cultural forms, it never does so from a privileged position outside the culture. His work brilliantly mimics the argots of the very phenomena it dissects: violent thrillers and conspiracy theories, pop music, advertising, science fiction, film, and television. As a result, DeLillo has been read both as a denouncer and as a defender of contemporary culture; in fact, Osteen argues, neither description is adequate. DeLillo's dialogue with modern institutions, such as chemical companies, the CIA, and the media, respects their power and ingenuity while criticizing their dangerous consequences. Even as DeLillo borrows from their discourses, he maintains a tenaciously opposing stance toward the sources of collective power.

Product : Culture and the Child: A Guide for Professionals in Child Care and Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This, the first book in the Wiley Series in Culture and Professional Practice, is designed as a practical guide for professionals who work with children from differing cultural backgrounds. It relates cultural differences in development to the problems and practice of child care with a special contribution from cross-cultural psychology. The book includes the main issues which professionals are likely to encounter, for example: * how individual differences in temperament and behaviour interact with cultural traditions * how a sense of mixed identity develops and how this conflict affects many young people in different cultural settings * how the anxieties and motivations of children are influenced by their cultural backgrounds The book draws upon a theoretical and research base in cross-cultural psychology but presents the issues in practical terms leading to appropriate action. This book is unique with its focus on promoting the well-being of the children and those who care for them. Theory and practice are combined in a convenient volume intended for everyday use by professionals in the field, including pre-school teachers, child care workers and psychologists working with children and adolescents in multicultural environments. Culture and the Child concludes with a discussion of the effects of multicultural interaction and cultural change into the 21st century.

The British Soldier of the First World War

Product : The British Soldier of the First World War
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The First World War affected the lives of a whole generation of people in Britain and the Commonwealth. Most people living today will have an ancestor who fought or died in the conflict, and as the 90th anniversary of the conclusion of the war approaches, there has been a rush of people trying to trace their ancestors and understand what life for them was like during World War I. While the familiar images - the photographs, film, poetry and prose of the First World War focus on the hellish trenches, mud and death, there is another dimension to the soldiers life in the war - that of everyday life at the front. The Tommy was only in the trenches for at most one-quarter of his time overseas, and when away from the front, vigorous routine, training and order soon took over. Peter Doyle addresses this, describing the lives of British soldiers while not in the trenches at the front, exploring the life of the average soldier of the First World War and answering the question: what was it really like to be a soldier in the trenches on the frontline.

Good Wars Greatest Hits

Product : Good Wars Greatest Hits
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A fascinating guided tour of America's pop culture archives of World War II books, films, musicals, and more The glow of 1945 persists as a kind of beacon for American society, symbolic of an era when good and evil were easily defined. This image is at the center of Philip D. Beidler's entertaining look at the way World War II reshaped American popular culture. The legend of the "Good War" was fostered by wartime propaganda and reinforced in the aftermath of victory through books, the news media, movies, songs, and television. Beidler captures the aura of the times as he chronicles the production histories of more than a dozen projects with wartime themes, examining how books and plays evolved into films, how stars were considered and selected, technical problems and personality conflicts during production, and the public's reactions. From the upbeat tempo of the musical South Pacific to the weary disillusionment of The Best Years of Our Lives, from the patriotic nostalgia of Life's Picture History of World War II to the moral ambiguity of From Here to Eternity, a powerful mythology of the war developed. As a consequence, the line between fact and fiction has blurred for the war generation and its inheritors, and Hollywood's version of the Good War has become enshrined as historical fact in the nation's collective memory. "The Good War's Greatest Hits is a fascinating production. It is a book that can make us see the cultural significance of WWII in the way Paul Fussell's The Great War and Modern Memory opened our eyes to WWI". -- Joseph T. Cox, author of The Written Wars

Describing Inner Experience?: Proponent Meets Skeptic

Product : Describing Inner Experience?: Proponent Meets Skeptic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Can conscious experience be described accurately? Can we give reliableaccounts of our sensory experiences and pains, our inner speech and imagery, ourfelt emotions? The question is central not only to our humanistic understanding ofwho we are but also to the burgeoning scientific field of consciousness studies. Thetwo authors of Describing Inner Experience disagree on the answer: Russell Hurlburt, a psychologist, argues that improved methods of introspective reporting makeaccurate accounts of inner experience possible; Eric Schwitzgebel, a philosopher, believes that any introspective reporting is inevitably prone to error. In this bookthe two discuss to what extent it is possible to describe our inner experienceaccurately. Hurlburt and Schwitzgebel recruited a subject, "Melanie," toreport on her conscious experience using Hurlburt's Descriptive Experience Samplingmethod (in which the subject is cued by random beeps to describe her consciousexperience). The heart of the book is Melanie's accounts, Hurlburt andSchwitzgebel's interviews with her, and their subsequent discussions while studyingthe transcripts of the interviews. In this way the authors' dispute about thegeneral reliability of introspective reporting is steadily tempered by specificdebates about the extent to which Melanie's particular reports are believable.Transcripts and audio files of the interviews will be available on the MIT Presswebsite. Describing Inner Experience? is not so much a debate as it is acollaboration, with each author seeking to refine his position and to replacepartisanship with balanced critical judgment. The result is an illumination of majorissues in the study of consciousness--from two sides at once.Russell T. Hurlburt isProfessor of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Eric Schwitzgebel isAssociate Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Riverside.

Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture

Product : Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : JFK, Karl Marx, the Pope, Aristotle Onassis, Queen Elizabeth II, Howard Hughes, Fox Mulder, Bill Clinton -- all have been linked to vastly complicated global (or even galactic) intrigues. In this enlightening tour of conspiracy theories, Mark Fenster guides readers through this shadowy world and analyzes its complex role in American culture and politics. Fenster argues that conspiracy theories are a form of popular political interpretation and contends that understanding how they circulate through mass culture helps us better understand our society as a whole. To that end, he discusses Richard Hofstadter's The Paranoid Style in American Politics, the militia movement, The X-Files, popular Christian apocalyptic thought, and such artifacts of suspicion as The Turner Diaries, the Illuminatus trilogy, and the novels of Richard Condon. Fenster analyzes the "conspiracy community" of radio shows, magazine and book publishers, Internet resources, and role-playing games that promote these theories. In this world, the very denial of a conspiracy's existence becomes proof that it exists, and the truth is always "out there." He believes conspiracy theory has become a thrill for a bored subculture, one characterized by its members' reinterpretation of "accepted" history, their deep cynicism about contemporary politics, and their longing for a utopian future. Fenster's progressive critique of conspiracy theories both recognizes the secrecy and inequities of power in contemporary politics and economics and works toward effective political engagement. Probing conspiracy theory's tendencies toward scapegoating, racism, and fascism, as well as Hofstadter's centrist acceptance of a postwar American"consensus, " he advocates what conspiracy theory wants but cannot articulate: a more inclusive, engaging political culture.

White Men Can't Hump (as Good as Black Men): Volume II: Sex & Race in America

Product : White Men Can't Hump (as Good as Black Men): Volume II: Sex & Race in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : White Men Can't Hump is a book of hope. The hope is that one day Black Men in America will no longer be viewed as unintelligent, unattractive, undesirable, uncivilized, and just plain old worthless. White Men Can't Hump will address why Black Men in America are perceived in such a negative way, and will also explore the origins of this negativity. White Men Can't Hump will also explore how this negativity has been spread for the last four centuries (a la stereotypes), and why this negativity has been spread (a la "Fear of the Black Penis"). Several of these so-called negative Stereotypes will be closely examined and shown in a new light. White Men Can't Hump will ask why two well known Stereotypes that have been historically assigned to Black Men, are only considered negative when applied to Black Men. Most men desire a large Penis and an elevated sexual prowess, but all across America (in offices, bars and locker rooms) the Black Penis and Black Prowess are routinely the Punch Line to jokes. White Men Can't Hump will ask why, and will also ask a question that will create a debate for the ages: "Who's better in bed, Black Men or White Men?" White Men Can't Hump will take you the reader on an educational and enlightening journey through America's past and present with the hope of changing America's future. So sit back and enjoy or cuss, agree or disagree, and most importantly think with an open mind. Because whether you like it or not, White Men Can't Hump tells the story of who all of us are, where we've come from, and where we're going. White Men Can't Hump is divided into two VOLUMES. VOLUME I focuses on how Sex has historically affected Race relations in America, and VOLUME IIfocuses on how Race has affected Sex relations in America. Don't be confused by the similar titles because both VOLUMES pack a different Sexual, Racial, Political, and Social punch.
