The Economics of Contracts: A Primer

Product : The Economics of Contracts: A Primer
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although it is one of the major achievements in the history of economic thought, the general equilibrium model is not completely satisfactory as a descriptive tool. In the 1970s several economists settled on a new way to study economic relationships that is often called the "economics of information." The theory of contracts is one of its main building blocks. The theory of contracts uses partial equilibrium models that take into account the full complexity of strategic interactions between privately informed agents in well-defined institutional settings. The models sum up the constraints imposed by the prevailing institutional setting through a contract, either explicit or implicit. They make intensive use of noncooperative game theory with asymmetric information. "The Economics of Contracts" introduces graduate students and nonspecialist professional economists to the theory of contracts. It grew out of a course Professor Salanie gave to third-year Stanford graduate students and third-year students at the Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l'Administration Economique. The book focuses on the methods used to analyze the models, but also discusses a few of the many applications the theory has generated in various fields of economics. The author's goal is to give readers the basic tools to create their own applications.

Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences

Product : Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences" is a brief, informative yet informal guide to recent developments in the cognitive neurosciences by the scientists who are in the thick of things. "Getting a fix on important questions and how to think about them from an experimental point of view is what scientists talk about, sometimes endlessly. It is those conversations that thrill and motivate," observes Michael Gazzaniga. Yet all too often these exciting interactions are lost to students, researchers, and others who are "doing" science. "Conversations in the Cognitive Neurosciences" brings together a series of interviews with prominent individuals in neuroscience, linguistics, philosophy, and psychology that have appeared over the past few years in the "Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience." The ten interviews are divided into five sections: basic neuroscience approaches to cognition ("Floyd Bloom" and "Mark Raichle"), attentional and perceptual processes ("Michael I. Posner" and "William T. Newsome"), neural basis of memory ("Randy Gallistel" and "Endel Tulving"), language ("Steven Pinker" and "Alfonso Caramazza"), and imagery and consciousness ("Stephen M. Kosslyn" and "Daniel C. Dennett"). "A Bradford Book"

Simpson, and all the high and low points in between. Marcus on Al Davis: "I could neither understand nor determine why Al Davis had declared war against me. But for all the motives suggested, none involved the possibility that the issue might be racial. Al Davis was many things that I didn't admire, but he was no bigot." Marcus on O.J. Simpson: "I am and forever will be forever be tortured by the loss of two people who were my friends; one murdered, one now forced to live a lifetime being blamed for tragedy."

Description : Diversifications is a collection of shorter poems by the poet whose Collected Poems won the National Book Award. The poems are on a diversity of subjects, but through them all runs the strong unity of vision that has led critic Geoffrey Hartman to acclaim Ammons as "a major American poet" (New York Times Book Review). "If his importance was suspected before," wrote the poet John Ashbery in The New York Review of Books, "it is now confirmed." Ammons came late to poetry, and has come even more lately into national recognition. That recognition is solid, however, and can only be increased by this, his latest volume.

"Advances in Exercise Immunology" explores-whether athletes are more susceptible to illness than the general public; -the effects of exercise on resistance to infectious disease and whether infection adversely influences exercise performance; -the effects of exercise on immune cell function and other mediators of immunity; -the effects of exercise on specific aspects of immune function; -the potential clinical applications of exercise immunology; and -the current state of knowledge and future directions of the field. The book's organizational structure makes it accessible to readers of differing backgrounds and interests. Researchers and graduate students will appreciate that each chapter is a separate, detailed review of a specific topic. Those new to the field will benefit from the comprehensive overview of all areas of exercise immunology. Summaries of research findings, practical applications, and areas yet to be explored conclude each chapter and serve as useful review material and thought-provoking guideposts to future study. Introductory readers will find these features helpful in understanding key issues in the field, and graduate students and researchers can use them to extend their own research. Research efforts in the field of exercise immunology have expanded and intensified as more exercise scientists and health care professionals recognize the importance of this discipline. "Advances in Exercise Immunology" is the vital resource you need to keep abreast of this flourishing field of study.

Now sixties historian and rock journalist Alan Clayson offers up a biography that spans Richards's career: from his early days in art school, to the takeoff of the Stones' first single in 1963, to turbulent times in the swinging sixties and his battle with heroin addiction, and finally to what this distinguished old rock-and-roller is up to today.

Latina Legislator: Leticia Van de Putte and the Road to Leadership

Product : Latina Legislator: Leticia Van de Putte and the Road to Leadership
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In late 2003, Texas State Senator Leticia Van de Putte led ten other Texas Senate Democrats to New Mexico as part of a protest against a Republican redistricting plan. The walkout of the "Texas Eleven" made national headlines; it also deprived the state senate of a quorum and temporarily froze all legislative action. As Sharon A. Navarro shows in Latina Legislator, the dramatic boycott is a fitting image for Van de Putte's life and career. Though she initially ran for office on a shoestring budget, Senator Van de Putte has successfully authored and sponsored legislation that has reformed the state welfare system, revamped the Juvenile Code, and provided a healthcare safety net for children in Texas. Multiple civic and community groups have recognized her as one of the most effective and influential lawmakers in Texas. With Van de Putte as her central case study, Navarro assesses the possibilities for other Latina and all female legislators. Further, her analysis of Van de Putte's record provides a context for judging legislative effectiveness and productivity. This book is invaluable for those interested in Texas and regional politics as well as women's and ethnic studies.

Year One

Product : Year One
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Swedish photographer Tobias Faldth, born in 1978, is a collector of images. He compiles photographs, like notes in a diary, into stories and narratives. It is never clear whether they are his images and experiences or simple collections of found imagery. Together they culminate in one fictional year of a life, "Year One." What these disparate images have in common is a reliance on unnatural lighting--often a flash is used, and even when taken during daylight, the images tend to be washed out, a bit dreamlike. Faldth is as interested in raising questions of authorship as he is in constructing a narrative, yet the photographs have a visual congruency that is rare among artists who trade in found imagery. Highly prolific as an image-maker, this is Faldth first book.

Product : External Intervention and the Politics of State Formation: China, Indonesia, and Thailand, 1893 1952
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book explores ways in which foreign intervention and external rivalries can affect the institutionalization of governance in weak states. When sufficiently competitive, foreign rivalries in a weak state can actually foster the political centralization, territoriality, and autonomy associated with state sovereignty. This counterintuitive finding comes from studying the collective effects of foreign contestation over a weak state as informed by changes in the expected opportunity cost of intervention for outside actors. When interveners associate high opportunity costs with intervention, they bolster sovereign statehood as a next best alternative to their worst fear domination of that polity by adversaries. Sovereign statehood develops if foreign actors concurrently and consistently behave this way toward a weak state. This book evaluates that argument against three least likely cases China, Indonesia, and Thailand between the late nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries.

Textual and Literary Criticism

Product : Textual and Literary Criticism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The literary critic tends to think that the textual scholar or bibliographer, happily occupied in his travel drudgery, has not much to say that he would care to hear, so there is a gulf between them. Professor Bowers advances to the edge of this gulf and says several forceful things across it; they turn out to be important and interesting, though occasionally scathing. The first chapter reminds us that the literary critic can only criticise with confidence when the textual critic has established what the author wrote; Professor Bowers indicates how very much has yet to be done. The second chapter takes a particular case, Walt Whitman's copy' for the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass, and shows how the bibliographer can, by ingenious but rigourous deduction, give an insight into the growth of an author's conception of the nature and aim of his work. The other two lectures, on Shakespeare and other early dramatic texts, will show non-specialists the striking advances in editorial technique, and the growth of standards of scholarship in these studies.

Contemporary African American Female Playwrights: An Annotated Bibliography

Product : Contemporary African American Female Playwrights: An Annotated Bibliography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun" (1959) was a major dramatic success and brought to the world's attention the potential talent of African American women playwrights. But in spite of Hansberry's landmark contribution, both the theater and the literary world have often failed to include contemporary African American female playwrights within the circle of production, publication, and criticism. In African American drama anthologies, female playwrights are seldom given the degree of attention that is accorded their male counterparts. And because of space constraints, anthologies of works by women playwrights are forced to exclude numerous female dramatists, including African Americans. Meanwhile, some scholars have argued that the works of African American female playwrights are seldom produced in the mainstream theater because these plays frequently challenge the views of white America. But as "A Raisin in the Sun" demonstrates, plays by African American women dramatists can have a powerful message and are worthy of attention. A comprehensive research tool, this annotated bibliography sheds light on the often neglected works of contemporary African American female playwrights. Included within its scope are those dramatists who have had at least one work published since 1959, the year of Hansberry's monumental achievement. The first section provides a listing of anthologies that include one or more plays written by an African American female dramatist. The second gives entries for reference works and for scholarly and critical studies of the dramatists and their plays. The third presents a listing of published plays by individual dramatists, along with a summary of each drama; the works of each playwright that are related to drama; and secondary sources that treat the dramatists and their plays. Entries are accompanied by concise but informative annotations, and the volume closes with a list of periodicals that frequently publish criticism of African American female playwrights, a section of brief biographical sketches of the dramatists, and extensive indexes.

The essays in this volume are organized around three themes: the histories, narratives, and ethics of evil. In each section, the first essay illustrates theoretical difficulties thinking about evil faces in the postmodern age, while the second offers a constructive response to that difficulty.

The Classical Foundations of the American Constitution: Prevailing Wisdom

Product : The Classical Foundations of the American Constitution: Prevailing Wisdom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Framers of the American Constitution were substantially influenced by ancient history and classical political theory, as exemplified by their education, the availability of classical readings, and their inculcation in classical republican values. This volume explores how the Framing generation deployed classical learning to develop many of the essential structural aspects of the Constitution: federalism, separation of powers, a bicameral legislature, independent courts, and the war and foreign relations powers. Also examined are very contemporary constitutional debates, for which there were classical inspirations, including sovereign immunity, executive privilege, line-item vetoes, and the electoral college. Combining techniques of intellectual history, classical studies, and constitutional interpretation, this book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of contemporary constitutionalism.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although Western societies cannot escape from images of famine in the present world, their direct experience with widespread hunger has receded into the past. England was one of the very first countries to escape from the shadow of famine and in this volume, a team of distinguished economic, social, and demographic historians analyze why. The contributors combine detailed local studies of individual communities, broader analyses of the impact of hunger and disease, and methodological discussions that explore the effect of crisis mortality on early modern societies. The essays examine the complex interrelationships among past demographic, social, and economic structures, and demonstrate that the impact of hunger and disease can provide a unique vehicle for an exploration of early modern society.

Western Plainchant: A Handbook

Product : Western Plainchant: A Handbook
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Plainchant is the oldest substantial body of music that has been preserved in any shape or form. It was first written down in Western Europe in the eighth to ninth centuries. Many thousands of chants have been sung at different times or places in a multitude of forms and styles, responding to the differing needs of the church through the ages. This book provides a clear and concise introduction, designed both for those to whom the subject is new and those who require a reference work for advanced study. It begins with an explanation of the liturgies that plainchant was designed to serve. It describes all the chief genres of chant, different types of liturgical book, and plainchant notations. After an exposition of early medieval theoretical writing on plainchant, Hiley provides a historical survey that traces the constantly changing nature of the repertory. He also discusses important musicians and centers of composition. Copiously illustrated with over 200 musical examples, this book highlights the diversity of practice and richness of the chant repertory in the Middle Ages. It will be an indispensable introduction and reference source on this important music for many years to come.

Description : To age is to embrace a slow hurt inside and out, to collect scars like rings on a tree, dark and weathered and sometimes only visible if someone cuts deep enough. Scars keep the past just close enough to touch, but healing is forgetting. Healing invites another cut. Healing is the tide that smoothes away our line in the sand. For life to begin, the damage must be permanent. - Dale Sampson, The SamaritanDale Sampson is a nobody. A small town geek who lives in the shadow of his best friend, the high school baseball star, it takes him years to even gather the courage to actually talk to a girl. It doesn't go well. Then, just when he thinks there's a glimmer of hope for his love life, he loses everything.When Dale runs into the twin sister of the girl he loved and lost, he finds his calling--he will become a samaritan. Determined to rescue her from a violent marriage, and redeem himself in the process, he decides to use the only "weapon" he has--besides a toaster. His weapon, the inexplicable ability to regenerate injured body parts, leads him to fame and fortune as the star of a blockbuster TV reality show where he learns that being The Samaritan is a heartbreaking affair.

A Military History of Italy

Product : A Military History of Italy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book follows Italy's military history from the late Renaissance through the present day, arguing that its leaders have consistently looked back to the power of Imperial Rome as they sought to bolster Italy's status and influence in the world. As early as the late 15th century, Italian city-states played important roles in European conflicts. After unification in 1861, the military would become the nation's unifying force, the melting pot of the state. Italy's industrial and then colonial expansion brought it into the wars of the 20th century. The rise of fascist movement was the disastrous consequence of Italy's desire for colonial and military power, a history that the nation still confronts as it seeks to play a role in world politics. Wealthy, urban Italy has always had great political, cultural, and strategic importance for Europe. The leaders of its independent city-states intervened militarily in struggles among the European powers to its north and west but also against the expanding Muslim empires to its south and east. Italian culture supported military innovation, developing (for instance) new fortifications and naval organizations. After centuries of division, which limited Italy's power against the larger, unified European nations, the military played an important role in the nationalist unification of the entire country. Rapid industrialization followed, and along with it Italy's forays into overseas colonialism. Italy became a major power, but its turn to militant fascism during its expansionist era continues to haunt its state and military.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How do the people of a village that is both Chinese and Christian reconcile the contradictions between their religious and ethnic identities? This ethnographic study explores the construction and changing meanings of ethnic identity in Hong Kong. Established at the turn of the century by Hakka Christians who sought to escape hardships and discrimination in China, Shung Him Tong was constructed as an "ideal" Chinese and Christian village. The Hakka Christians translate "traditional" Chinese beliefs--such as ancestral worship and death rituals--that are incompatible with their Christian ideals into secular form, providing a crucial link with the past and with a Chinese identity. Despite accusations to the contrary, these villagers maintain that while they are Christian, they are still Chinese.

For the average birder who wants to identify a good number of species, this book is a useful and convenient way to go." -- Robin W. Doughty, author of The Return of the Whooping Crane More than a thousand species of birds occur in Mexico and in the adjacent countries of Belize, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

This practical field guide contains detailed annotations for easy identification of all of Mexico's regular species. The descriptions include the English, Spanish, and Latin names; a general range statement for each bird, along with its specific occurrences in the region; its typical habitat(s) and abundance; and its physical characteristics, including size and plumage. Excellent color plates with drawings of over 850 species make this the most fully illustrated guide to the region.

Product : In Their Own Interests: Race, Class and Power in Twentieth-Century Norfolk, Virginia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since the Civil War, African Americans have made great efforts to empower themselves. Focusing on Norfolk, Virginia, Earl Lewis shows how blacks have had to balance competing inclinations for conscious inaction and purposeful agitation as they sought to promote their own interests at home and in the workplace. "In Their Own Interests" presents a cross-section of southern urban blacks--the power-brokers and lesser-knowns, Garvey followers and communist enthusiasts--who came to live in Norfolk between the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement. Lewis seeks to recreate the texture of African-American life by examining the lives of the people after they moved to the city--the jobs and assistance they secured, the houses, families, and institutions they built, the battles they waged, and the culture they shared. "In Their Own Interests" moves African-American urban and social history beyond the current intellectual crossroads. Drawing on a variety of sources, Lewis tells the interconnected story of race, class, and power in twentieth-century Norfolk. His study has far-reaching implications and should be of wide interest.

Some common motivating themes emerge: the importance of real world events and a desire for relevance--as seen in James Tobin's decision to enter economics in order to understand the ruin caused by the Great Depression and in Gary Becker's recourse to economics to help him understand inequality, race, and class; the influence of great teachers-- several cite the charismatic Milton Friedman; the right conditions for creativity and intellectual discovery--as found at the University of Chicago starting in the late 1940s, and the Rand Corporation in the 1950s; and the role of chance in their careers--the "lucky accidents" that set them on one path rather than another. Together, these individual accounts give what the editors call a "comprehensive picture of the diverseness, richness, and profundity that is the hallmark of contemporary economic thought in America."

The Protestant Voice in American Pluralism

Product : The Protestant Voice in American Pluralism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For 350 years, Protestantism was the dominant religion in America--and its influence spilled over in many directions into the wider culture. Religious historian Martin E. Marty looks at the factors behind both the long period of Protestant ascendancy in America (initiated by the founding of Jamestown in 1607) and the comparatively recent diffusion and diminution of its authority (first covered in-depth by Will Herberg's 1955 landmark book "Protestant Catholic Jew.) To discover what is particularly "American" about Protestantism in this country, Marty looks at Protestant "creencias, or beliefs that complement or supplement pure doctrine. These include the notion of God as an agent of America's destiny and the impact of the biblical credos of mission, stewardship, and vocation on innumerable nonreligious matters of daily life. Marty also discusses "vigencias, or the binding (though unwritten) customs, of Protestantism. They include the tendencies to interpret matters of faith in market terms and to conflate biblical and enlightenment ideology into "civic faith." Challenges to Protestant hegemony came and went over the centuries, says Mary, but never in such force and to such effect as in the twentieth century. Today, our Protean spirituality is the topic of everything from sermons to bumper stickers. All in all, this is good, reassures Marty, for to debate our spirituality is to sustain the life of a functioning, thinking, believing republic. Those who pine for some golden age of Protestantism are misled by nostalgia or resentment. The real work to be done by Protestants now is to serve, partner, and corporate where they once managed, controlled, and directed.

The Halifax Citadel: Portrait of a Military Fortress

Product : The Halifax Citadel: Portrait of a Military Fortress
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Halifax Citadel was a great bastion of the British Empire, the impregnable shield of the "Warden of the North." Today it is one of Canada's most famous landmarks: every year thousands visit the star-shaped fortress, watch the traditional firing of the noon-day gun and roam the ramparts and the fortified buildings where British soldiers were once garrisoned. They watch the re-enactment of military exercises by men and women in authentic 19th-century military uniforms, and enjoy the music of the pipe band in the Parade. This richly-illustrated history conveys the lively martial pageantry of this unparalleled attraction. This book offers background on the Halifax Citadel and its history, exploring the lives of soldiers and their families stationed in Hailfax in the 19th century.

Children in Time and Place: Developmental and Historical Insights

Product : Children in Time and Place: Developmental and Historical Insights
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Each generation of American children across the tumultuous twentieth century has come of age in a very different world and under the influence of different major historical events such as war or the depression. Now in paperback, Children in Time and Place brings together social historians and developmentalists to explore the implications of a changing society for children's growth and life chances. Transitions provide a central theme, from historical transitions to the social transitions of children and their developmental experiences. Children in Time and Place begins with studies that link historical life transitions in children's lives with emphasis on wartime experience. It turns to studies of historical variation in the effect of life transitions, from the onset of sexual experience to the transition to fatherhood, and it concludes by introducing the reader to the collaborative efforts involved in the workshop that led to the volume. This book will be of interest to developmental psychologists, sociologists, and historians.

The Medical Library Association Guide to Health Literacy

Product : The Medical Library Association Guide to Health Literacy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nearly a quarter of the U.S. population struggles with low literacy -- and low health literacy. The inability to read, understand, and effectively utilize health information is linked to higher levels of chronic disease, more frequent emergency room visits, and early mortality. The cost and quality of care implications are enormous, and health literacy is a hot topic for policy makers and researchers -- and for libraries struggling to respond to patrons' unmet health information needs. This authoritative MLA guide will help you understand the vital role that medical, hospital, public, and health libraries are uniquely qualified to play in improving health literacy. You will learn innovative ways to use collection development, the reference interview, community health information, and Web resources, as well as strategics for working with special needs populations, including seniors, the disabled, ESL groups, and people of diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Case studies illustrate best practices, including ways to partner with health care providers and other organizations to create and fund health literacy programming in your community and make your library a vital player in this increasingly important information needs area.
