Can State Universities Be Managed?: A Primer for Presidents and Management Teams

Product : Can State Universities Be Managed?: A Primer for Presidents and Management Teams
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "Can State Universities Be Managed?" Duane Acker focuses on perspectives, the crtitical knowledge base, early actions, and management practices for presidential or other university officer aspirants or appointees. Chapters on specific issues, such as money sources, athletics, research parks, state-wide programs, and student enrollment, will help leaders achieve effective and rewarding management. This book responds to questions the reader should ask, such as: How are 21st-century state universities perceived? How would I fit into a specific university and its leadership position? What should I expect in the selection process? What should I be sure to know - - about the university's programs, key people, money, priorities? There are many other issues the reader will need to deal with once appointed and these are addressed here too. Among the topics covered are critical first steps, and when, where, and how to take them; steps the appointing authority or one's predecessor can take that will help ease the transition; and other issues one will surely face. The book explores management concepts and practices specifically applicable to universities, offers examples that will help the reader prepare, and outlines the relationships that are most critical to success--and how one keeps them positive and helpful. Equally important, it explains where state university money comes from, and in what proportions, as well as ways to manage those sources to get needed funds. Finally, it covers ways in which one can handle a demanding management job and still enjoy good family relationships and good health.

The Ethics of Fetal Research

Product : The Ethics of Fetal Research
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Ethics of Fetal Research" distinguishes between the legal and ethical questions raised by experimentation on still-living human fetuses. Paul Ramsey first outlines the various types of fetal research now being done and grants their potential benefits. He then describes the development of proposed American guidelines up to the National Research Act, passed by Congress in 1974, and compares these guidelines with England's recent "Peel Report." In considering the moral and ethical problems involved in fetal research, Ramsey deals with ways in which medical policy is formulated in the United States.

The Great Brain Debate: Nature or Nurture?

Product : The Great Brain Debate: Nature or Nurture?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Whether the development of our brain, our personality, intelligence, and behavior, and ultimately the demise of brain function as we age, are more likely to be shaped and affected by our environment or our genetic coding is not simply an idle question for today's researchers. There are tremendous consequences to understanding the crucial role that each plays. How we raise and educate our children, how we deal with abnormal behavior or various mental diseases, how we care for our elderly--these are just some of the issues that can be informed by a better and more complete understanding of brain development. John E. Dowling, eminent professor and famed neuroscience researcher, looks at these and other important issues. The work that is being done by scientists on neurodegenerative diseases, the connection between the brain and vision, as well as the ways in which our brains help us learn new things, are particularly revealing. From this groundbreaking research we are able to gain startling new insights into how the brain functions and how it can (or cannot) be molded and changed. By studying the brain across the spectrum of our lives, from infancy through adulthood and into old age, we see how the brain develops, transforms, and adjusts through the years. Looking specifically at early development and then at the opportunities for additional learning and development as we mature and, eventually, the changes that occur as we age, we learn more about the ways in which both nature and nurture play key roles during the course of a human lifetime.

The Persian Gulf at the Millennium: Essays in Politics, Economy, Security, and Religion

Product : The Persian Gulf at the Millennium: Essays in Politics, Economy, Security, and Religion
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, the Gulf has been the scene - and sometimes the source - of international political and economic turmoil. Blatant intervention on the part of the Western powers in the domestic affairs of the eight regional states was a familiar feature from World War II until the British withdrawal in 1971, when it assumed more subtle forms. In addition, the oil shocks of the 1970s, followed closely by the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis, triggered economic dislocations across the globe, as well as political upheaval and the disruption of a long-established security structure. In The Gulf at the Millennium, the most prominent Gulf specialists from both the Western world and the Gulf are brought together to look at this extraordinarily active and influential part of the world. The scholars identify and examine the issues that have the potential to affect future developments in the region, including the rapid demographic changes which are taking place, the relationship of the oil market to political stability and progress, the resurgence of Islam as a political force, the often heavy expenditures on defence, and new geostrategic realities after the end of the Cold War. A dynamic, crucial volume, The Gulf at the Millennium provides an unprecedented view beyond the media hype into what is perhaps the most volatile and controversial region of the world today.

Alexandra

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Taking advantage of material unavailable until the fall of the Soviet Union, Erickson portrays Alexandra's story as a closely observed, enthrallingly documented, progressive psychological retreat from reality. The lives of the Romanovs were full of color and drama, but the personal life of Alexandra has remained enigmatic. Under Erickson's masterful scrutiny the full dimensions of the Empresses' singular psychology are revealed: her childhood bereavement, her long struggle to attain her romantic goal of marriage to Nicholas, the anguish of her pathological shyness, her struggles with her in-laws, her false pregnancy, her increasing eccentricities and loss of self as she became more preoccupied with matters of faith, and her increasing dependence on a series of occult mentors, the most notorious of whom was Rasputin. With meticulous care, long practiced skill, and generous imagination, Erickson crafts a character who lives and breathes.

Description : This is the first book to cover not only the economics of the fine arts and performing arts in the United States but also public policy toward the arts at federal, state, and local levels. The book will interest academic readers seeking a core text on the economics of the arts and arts management and a supplementary text on the sociology of the arts, as well as general readers seeking a systematic analysis of the arts in America. Theoretical concepts are developed from scratch so that readers with little background in economics can follow arguments. The authors look at the arts' historical growth and then examine consumption and production of art in the public and private sectors, the functioning and financial problems of arts markets, the financial problems of performing arts companies and museums, and the key role of public policy. A final chapter speculates about the future of art and culture in the United States.

Description : It wouldn't be the first time that identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd switched identities, yet it's the first time as adults that they've even considered the prank. Melina, the more impetuous twin, proposes that her circumspect sister take her place as media escort to NASA astronaut and national hero Colonel Christopher "Chief" Hart. Gillian declines for a very personal reason -- she's preoccupied with whether or not the artificial insemination she underwent that day will be successful. Besides, she warns Melina, such a switch could have unexpected consequences . . .

Grand Excursions on the Upper Mississippi River: Places, Landscapes, and Regional Identity After 1854

Product : Grand Excursions on the Upper Mississippi River: Places, Landscapes, and Regional Identity After 1854
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : IN June 1854 the Grand Excursion celebrated in festive style the completion of the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad to the Mississippi River. Hundreds of dignitaries including newspaper editors and other journalists, politicians, academics, writers, artists, business and industry leaders, and railroad officials were among those who traveled by rail from Chicago to Rock Island, Illinois, then by steamboat to St. Paul in Minnesota Territory. The travelers were shown a region undergoing rapid settlement by Europeans--an area of great natural beauty that offered much promise for additional development. One hundred and fifty years later, the thirteen essays in this volume examine the activities and environments of the 1854 Grand Excursion and place them in the context of an evolving regional identity for the Upper Mississippi River Valley based on the economy, culture, geography, and history of the area. In a series of "excursions," the contributors explore the building of the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad, eastern newspaper accounts of the 1854 excursion, steamboating, the area's pictorial landscape, passenger trains along the scenic river, the genesis and features of river towns, the control of the river for navigation, the development of preserves, parks, and recreation areas, the lumber industry, and commercial fishing. The book concludes by examining the resurgence of river-oriented development, as river towns are once again embracing the Mississippi. Generously illustrated with maps, engravings, ephemera, and historic and present-day photographs, "Grand Excursions on the Upper Mississippi River will be appreciated by tourists and residents of the area, river aficionados, andrailroad and steamboat history buffs as well as academics interested in the history, geography, and regional development of the area.

The Boy on the Green Bicycle

Product : The Boy on the Green Bicycle
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Memory can distort, diffuse, simply omit. Or it can clarify, confirm, preserve forever fragments from the flow of our lives. From such pieces, Margaret Diehl has re-created the enchantment of her large Southern family settled in the North whose four siblings are exquisitely joined: "We each had our place in the family, each of us a different age, like a step, connected, and nobody else anywhere related to us as we were to each other. It was a metaphysical pleasure". They are by turns innocent, naive, joyous, bumptious, young, then suddenly slashed, stricken by a reality that attaches permanently, especially to her, body and soul: "My book of hours". Her older brother, the most exceptional, the best-loved, the bright shining light of the family -- and her absolute champion and hero -- is killed. He is fourteen, she nine, and her small young sour is sent careening through the world in some entirely new and frightening way, imbued with an overwhelming sense of his absence from her enternity on earth.

Product : Through the Eyes of My Heart: Witness, Poetry, and Prophesy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Through the Eyes of My Heart" is about the response of the beloved to the awakening light of Jesus. The poetry within reflects the connection of Dr. Shirley Anne Cox, who came late in life to the Kingdom, to her Lord. In some of the poems, she pours out her love and gratefulness to the Lord. In others she bemoans her sinful nature and admits to its unrelenting presence in her life. The rest of her poems are endearing and amusing. The poetry is preceded by the author's witness, which gives her love of Jesus a personal historical perspective. The final few pages of this book recount some prophetic words the author has received. These are included to show the Lord's willingness to use all His people as vessels of His wisdom and love. The reader is left with the assurance that the author loves her Lord in a very real way. She expresses the full spectrum of human experiences in her poetry: anger to gratitude, despair to joy, and isolation to passionate connection.

On Paper: New Paper Art

Product : On Paper: New Paper Art
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Paper is one of the most versatile of all media. Whether folded, cut, or molded as pulp, its role need not be restricted to that of support for other media. However, until the mid-twentieth century such techniques as papier mache and origami were accorded the status of little more than curiosities, certainly not to be regarded as vehicles for serious creative endeavor. Attitudes changed after artists of the standing of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque began to explore the nature of paper, taking it from the flatness of collage toward the three-dimensionality of sculpture. Over the last fifty years, a growing number of practitioners from disciplines as diverse as textiles, ceramics, sculpture, painting, and design have used paper as their principal material. On Paper explores the development of paper as a medium of expression, combining personal recollection with historical overview, and comprehensively illustrated with a whole range of the different creative uses to which paper has been put by artists from all over the world.

Alternative American Religions

Product : Alternative American Religions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Through their role in the development of the First Amendment and their exercise of the freedoms it grants, alternative religious groups have had a profound influence on American history. As Stephen J. Stein points out in this vivid overview, the history of alternative religion--from colonial Puritans to late-20th-century Branch Davidians--runs parallel to that of dissent in America. Committed to fairness of representation, Stein describes the evolution and structure of alternative religious movements from both sides: the critics and the religious dissenters themselves. He investigates obscure groups such as the 19th-century Vermont Pilgrims, who wore bearskins and refused to bathe or cut their hair, alongside better-known alternative believers, including colonial America's largest outsider faith, the Quakers; 17th- and 18th-century Mennonites, Amish, and Shakers; and the Christian Scientists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Black Muslims, and Scientologists of today. The book also covers the milestones in the history of alternative American religions, from the infamous Salem witch trials and mass suicide/murder at Jonestown to the positive ways in which these religions have affected racial relations and the empowerment of women. Religion in American Life explores the evolution, character, and dynamics of organized religion in America from 1500 to the present day. Written by distinguished religious historians, these books weave together the varying stories that compose the religious fabric of the United States, from Puritanism to alternative religious practices. Primary source material coupled with handsome illustrations and lucid text make these books essential in any exploration of America's diverse nature. Each book includes a chronology, suggestions for further reading, and index.

Building Systems from Commercial Components

Product : Building Systems from Commercial Components
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Commercial software components can dramatically reduce the cost and time required to develop complex business-critical systems. However, integrating them offers stiff challenges that are not well understood by most software practitioners, and there have been many spectacular failures. Now, a team of authors from the Software Engineering Institute draws upon the lessons presented by both the failures and the successes, offering a start-to-finish methodology for integrating commercial components successfully. The authors examine failed integration projects, identifying key lessons and early warning signs, including the failure to account for loss of control over engineering design and production. Drawing upon both successes and failures, they present proven solutions for establishing requirements, evaluating components, creating flexible system designs that incorporate commercial components; and managing multiple concurrent design options linked to external market events and feasibility proofs. They also show how to build "just-in-time" competency with commercial components and integration.

Neural Network Design and the Complexity of Learning

Product : Neural Network Design and the Complexity of Learning
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Using the tools of complexity theory, Stephen Judd develops a formal description of associative learning in connectionist networks. He rigorously exposes the computational difficulties in training neural networks and explores how certain design principles will or will not make the problems easier. Judd looks beyond the scope of any one particular learning rule, at a level above the details of neurons. There he finds new issues that arise when great numbers of neurons are employed and he offers fresh insights into design principles that could guide the construction of artificial and biological neural networks. The first part of the book describes the motivations and goals of the study and relates them to current scientific theory. It provides an overview of the major ideas, formulates the general learning problem with an eye to the computational complexity of the task, reviews current theory on learning, relates the book's model of learning to other models outside the connectionist paradigm, and sets out to examine scale-up issues in connectionist learning. Later chapters prove the intractability of the general case of memorizing in networks, elaborate on implications of this intractability and point out several corollaries applying to various special subcases. Judd refines the distinctive characteristics of the difficulties with families of shallow networks, addresses concerns about the ability of neural networks to generalize, and summarizes the results, implications, and possible extensions of the work. "Neural Network Design and the Complexity of Learning "is included in the Network Modeling and Connectionism series edited by Jeffrey Elman.

Beyer on Speed

Product : Beyer on Speed
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Critics and handicappers adore him. The Boston Globe once called him "the manic evangelist, grand guru, and scholarly professor of handicapping." His books espouse strategies and betting philosophies that have shaped the sport. But the true measure of Andrew Beyer's impact on handicapping is that his very name has become part of the horseplayer's terminology. Beyer's speed figures, first introduced almost twenty years ago in Picking Winners, revolutionized racetrack betting. But not until 1992, when the Daily Racing Form included Beyer Speed Figures in past performances, did they become widely available. Now, in Beyer on Speed, the author shows how to make speed figures the focal point of an effective betting strategy. Written in Beyer's clean, rapid-fire prose, Beyer on Speed explains how to relate speed figures to such factors as pace, track bias, and track conditions.

This book is an important entry in a distinctive new series from Routledge: "The Great Philosophers." Breaking down obstacles to understanding the ideas of history's greatest thinkers, these brief, accessible, and affordable volumes offer essential introductions to the great philosophers of the Western tradition from Plato to Wittgenstein. In just 64 pages, each author, a specialist on his subject, places the philosopher and his ideas into historical perspective. Each volume explains, in simple terms, the basic concepts, enriching the narrative through the effective use of biographical detail. And instead of attempting to explain the philosopher's entire intellectual history, which can be daunting, this series takes one central theme in each philosopher's work, using it to unfold the philosopher's thoughts.

GPS Satellite Surveying

Product : GPS Satellite Surveying
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With the advent of the Global Positioning System (GPS), a new age has dawned for surveying and navigation. Using a network of orbiting satellites, GPS now makes it possible for ground-based technicians with hand-held monitors to determine their positions with a degree of precision previously unachievable by traditional surveying methods. GPS has the potential to revolutionize the entire practice of surveying, to give increased significance to the numerical records of surveyors, and to make available to many practicing surveyors measurement techniques that until recently were available to very few. To meet the needs of surveyors, engineers, and others for the latest, most complete information on this breakthrough technology, Alfred Leick has updated his classic introduction to the field. GPS Satellite Surveying, Second Edition, includes all the material that made the first edition the standard work on the subject and provides up-to-date information on the most recent developments. Comprehensive and thorough in its presentation, GPS Satellite Surveying is designed to help the modern land information specialist gain full use of GPS surveying techniques and a firm understanding of the resulting measurements. The range of its coverage includes: * Complete and mathematically rigorous theory of positioning with GPS that integrates astronomy, time, statistics, geodesy, and electronics * Explanation of the geodetic foundations of GPS positioning * Latest techniques of GPS positioning, such as ambiguity fixing on-the-fly (OTF) and rapid static * Differential GPS (DGPS), with applications for aircraft navigation * Full treatment of least-squares adjustment, including anextended discussion of the reliability of geodetic networks-material found in no other text * Emphasis on elements common to surveying and precise navigation in order to provide a unified-theory perspective on GPS positioning Of related interest... GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS: Principles and Applications, Volume 1: Principles, Volume 2: Applications Edited by David J. Maguire, Michael F. Goodchild, and David W. Rhind Featuring the work of internationally renowned specialists, this benchmark reference is the most thorough synthesis of the concepts, viewpoints, and issues underlying GIS.

Product : Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation: An Introduction to Applied Linguistics and Sociolinguistics for Nons
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Written in an engaging tone that keeps technical language to a minimum," Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation is truly unique in that it provides a broad intro-duction to applied linguistics specifically for nonspecialists. Using clear, easy-to-understand explanations and examples, the text avoids the in-depth theoretical coverage found in texts written for those who plan to continue on in the field, while also avoiding the superficiality of linguistics books written for the general reader. As a result, students, most of whom will be prospective ESL/EFL or English teachers, learn about how language works in ways that will directly serve them when teaching. The text is organized so that students first get a broad overview of the structure of language in the first four chapters (e.g. morphology, syntax, phonology, pragmatics, etc.) and then capitalizes on this knowledge by applying it to the topics of "applied" linguistics, such as language and gender, language policy, first and second language acquisition, literacy, and dialects. The text includes questions for review, research topics, extensive cross-referencing, and an extensive glossary of technical terms." Understanding Language Structure, Interaction, and Variation is versatile enough to be used in any introductory class (even for majors) and also serves as a great reference book for teachers.
