Research for Effective Social Work Practice with Student CD-ROM and Ethics Primer [With CDROM]

Product : Research for Effective Social Work Practice with Student CD-ROM and Ethics Primer [With CDROM]
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the fifth and final text in McGraw-Hill's new series NEW DIRECTIONS IN SOCIAL WORK. The text covers the basics of using and conducting social work research in a user-friendly, practical way, and provides many examples of social work research drawn from the literature as well as the authors' many years as social work educators, researchers, and evaluation consultants. "Research for Effective Social Work Practice" addresses all the basic topics such as formulating research questions, sampling, research design, measurement, and analysis; unlike other texts in the field, however, this book logically links the chapters so that, based on the research question that the social worker selects, she or he will be able to (a) make a reasoned judgment about the best research methods to apply, (b) articulate the strengths and weaknesses of her or his choices, and (c) critique the research methods used in other studies.

Job the Silent: A Study in Historical Counterpoint

Product : Job the Silent: A Study in Historical Counterpoint
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Offering an original reading of the book of Job, one of the great literary classics of biblical literature, this book develops a new analogical method for understanding how biblical texts evolve in the process of transmission. Zuckerman argues that the book of Job was intended as a parody protesting the stereotype of the traditional righteous sufferer as patient and silent. He compares the book of Job and its fate to that of a famous Yiddish short story, "Bontsye Shvayg," another covert parody whose protagonist has come to be revered as a paradigm of innocent Jewish suffering. Zuckerman uses the story to prove how a literary text becomes separated from the intention of its author, and takes on quite a different meaning for a specific community of readers.

AIDS in the World II

Product : AIDS in the World II
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : AIDS in the World, Vol. 1, published in 1992, was the first full analysis of mankind's global confrontation with this disease. The AIDS scene, however, has been changing so rapidly that the need for a second volume was felt much earlier than expected. In AIDS in the World II, the authors extend the international comparisons from 38 countries to the entire world, and show that the AIDS pandemic has become increasingly fragmented within the world population. They present data that takes the discussion beyond the current understanding of the vulnerability of nations and communities to the worldwide spread of HIV, engaging in a detailed exploration of the social strategies that have enabled individuals to avoid infection. Mann and Tarantola chart a course into the future based on an incisive investigation of the global pandemic and response, the crucial lessons learned from the first decade, and their expert understanding of the scientific and social dimensions of the HIV challenge. The authors explain how the variety of reactions to the pandemic has contributed to a more advanced awareness of our vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, and offer a blueprint for an expanded global prevention effort. Intended to serve the information needs of all professionals involved in AIDS research and care, this volume's accessibility and clarity of writing make it highly suitable for the general reader as well.

A Mother's Footprints of Faith: Stories of Hope and Encouragement for Mothers

Product : A Mother's Footprints of Faith: Stories of Hope and Encouragement for Mothers
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As she stands at the mid-point of her life, Carol Kuykendall looks over her shoulder and clearly sees a pattern of footprints where she took a step of growing faith in God, particularly as a wife and mother in the early days of marriage. In A Mother's Footprints of Faith, Kuykendall offers a collection of warm personal stories and ends each story with a reflective look back from her more mature perspective today. She describes how she now recognizes God's hand -- even when the most difficult or humorous situations left her feeling disillusioned at the time. This book of stories and reflections will encourage all mothers, especially those with young children, to recognize God's now-ness and the reality of His love. A Mother's Footprints of Faith includes stories about longings, transitions, obstacles, and temptations. Each chapter contains a Scripture that is illuminated by the personal experience, a summary of "Footprint Lessons", and some reflective questions, and the book concludes with a "Collection of Promises" from the Bible.

3 Quarters

Product : 3 Quarters
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Explosive, street-savvy, and authentic, acclaimed columnist Denis Hamill's novels are drawn in the gritty ink that can only flow from the pen of a native New Yorker...and a superbly talented writer. Now, blending sinuous prose with a hair-trigger delivery, Hamill etches a novel set in a mercenary New York--where friends become enemies, cops are corrupted, and some must die, all for the sake of Bobby Emmet was a desperate man, an honest New York City cop, framed for the murder of his fiancee, and given one last chance to save himself--by an unlikely benefactor. Bobby didn't murder his fiancee, Dorothea Dubrow, and then cremate the body--but he has an idea who is responsible. His murder trial interrupted his investigation of a police medical pension scam--and revealed how little he really knew about Dorothea. Now suddenly free, he is imprisoned in a web of corruption, lies, and the kind of secrets people kill for. Beginning his search for the truth at a shady security firm that employs able-bodied ex-cops, all of whom have mysteriously qualified for medical pensions--equal to a cool three-quarters of their salaries--he stumbles upon a startling discovery: the cremated remains that led to his conviction didn't really belong to Dorothea. Bobby has a few allies: his policeman brother, his hacker daughter, his flamboyantly unprincipled lawyer, a cop or two who stood by him through the trial. But the same forces that landed him in jail more than a year before are putting a smothering squeeze on him now--and all roads lead to a powerful politician who will let nothing get between himself and the governor's mansion. As the struggle to find the truth--and Dorothea--intensifies, Bobbybegins to suspect that those around him are not as loyal as they appear. His liberty and very life depend on whether or not he can discover how high--and how near--the conspiracy goes before the trap closes on him. At once lyrical and riveting, "Three Quarters" crackles in its electric setting, reverberating with a "relentless energy" (Lawrence Block) fueled by Hamill's intimate knowledge of and intense passion for New York City.

Oedipus at Fenway Park: What Rights Are and Why There Are Any

Product : Oedipus at Fenway Park: What Rights Are and Why There Are Any
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : We speak of rights as though they are objective matters of fact that have a crucial bearing on how we ought to behave. Yet few, if any, rights are universally acknowledged without wide differences of meaning. Instead, they usually represent the particular ideals of the individuals or groups that claim them. Theories of rights have always grappled with this central problem, but none of the literature on the subject has offered a satisfactory solution. Lloyd Weinreb makes the first significant advance toward an understanding of what rights are, how they function in our lives, and why we need them. Weinreb's central argument is that rights are tightly connected to responsibility. They are the normative constituents of persons, attributes that we have rightly, as our due. As such, they enable us to overcome the antinomy of moral freedom and natural causal order. Without them, we could not regard human beings as persons, that is, as free and responsible, or autonomous. Since responsibility is a structural feature of our experience and a matter of fact, rights too are matters of fact. Against a review of the current debates on the subject, Weinreb fully elaborates his original argument on the nature of rights and finds the source of concrete rights in the "nomos," or deep conventions, of a community. Applying his theory, he shows how it helps to answer specific questions about animal rights, human rights-including, in the context of abortion and capital punishment, the right to lifeand civil rights, including particularly rights of the handicapped, gay rights, and affirmative action in contemporary American society. Along the way, Weinreb shows that Oedipus and Roger Clemens have more in common than either would probably have supposed. This highly original work will significantly redirect the study of rights. It will be especially valuable to those who practice or study law, philosophy, politics, and public policy.

The Rendezvous

Product : The Rendezvous
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Rendezvous" is a beautiful and evocative first novel that blurs all lines between memoir and fiction. In a painfully sentimental journey, Louise, a sophisticated eighteen-year-old Parisian student, sits in a cafe awaiting the arrival of her long-absent mother, an aging hippie and former fashion model. As the hours pass and Louise waits, she reaches deeper and deeper into her store of memory, recalling the early failure of her parents' marriage. Louise remembers how brief and unfulfilling meetings with her mother have punctuated her safe and secure life with her father, a world-renowned conductor. Carefully walking the balance between anticipation and fear, Louise meditates upon the chaos of her mother's life, a life of decadence, drugs, and irresponsibility. Coming face-to-face with the powerful love she feels for her mother, Louise wryly acknowledges the complexity of a relationship filled with countless letdowns and unwavering devotion. Written with a wisdom that transcends age and the wit and savvy of a true survivor, "The Rendezvous" is a poignant examination of the transition to young adulthood and the often startling awareness of a parent's fallibility.

The last place she expects to die, however, is in a hotel room in Dallas, Texas. But she's not ready to die--and she'll do whatever it takes to survive. Escaping from the thugs in the hotel who are holding her captive, Fallon knows her only chance is to barge into a stranger's hotel room and pretend to be someone she's not--namely, the naked lover of the sexy stranger she's holding at gun point. Getting more than she bargained for with one Wade Tanner, Fallon becomes even more surprised when their staged attempt at love making suddenly becomes a little too real. Once Fallon is out of immediate danger, she's got a lot of questions to answer, and Wade--who wants to protect her and senses a lot of pain underneath her rough veneer--offers her a hiding place until she can find out who at the DEA betrayed her and tried to have her killed. As Wade tries to pull her closer and nearer to his heart, Fallon learns that it's not so bad trusting the ones you love...

In My Shadow, the narrator muses about her constant, airy companion with equal parts wonder, mischief, and wit, weaving a seamless fabric of childish whimsy. Penny Dale has illustrated Stevenson's classic poem with a lively crew of children, chasing and watching their shadowy twins. This is a picture book that promises to have children marveling over their own mysterious sidekicks.

Access to the Genome: The Challenge to Equality

Product : Access to the Genome: The Challenge to Equality
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Completion of the Human Genome Project will make possible a staggering array of new medical technologies, including new diagnostic and screening tests for inherited disorders, gene therapies, and the ability to manipulate a person's inherited, non-disease traits. Most of the attention given to the social implications of these technologies has focused on their potential to harm the individual, for example, by denying employment or insurance. This book explores instead the potential harm to society if we unfairly distribute the enormous benefits of genetic technologies. The resulting division of society into genetic haves and have-nots would undermine the basic foundation of Western democratic society -- the belief in equality of opportunity. This book explains, in terms that can be understood by the general reader, how DNA works, what the Human Genome Project is, what these genetic technologies are and what they promise, and how they could disrupt our democratic society. In an original contribution to the literature, the book then discusses the alternatives for avoiding the creation of a genetic underclass, ranging from halting the Human Genome Project itself to making genetic technologies available without regard to ability to pay. The authors' provocative conclusion is that a lottery in which everyone has a chance to obtain access to these technologies is the only feasible option. This book will be of interest to anyone who wishes to learn more about the Human Genome Project and the genetic revolution that it will create, as well as those who already are familiar with the project and are concerned about the social consequences of its scientific developments.

Product : Psychic Children: Revealing the Intuitive Gifts and Hidden Abilities of Boys and Girls
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The respected, world-renowned New York Times bestselling psychic takes on an intriguing new subjectthe psychic abilities of children. Sylvia Browne shares profound stories of how children can be channels to the Other Side. A childs world is comprised of extraordinary thingsvivid imaginations, imaginary friends, Zen-like navet, and a heightened sense of good and evil. In fact, it is now in vogue to proclaim that certain children are a direct channel to God, calling them Indigo Children or Crystal Children. But psychic Sylvia Browne knows these are merely fashionable labels. She recognizes that all children have unusual psychic gifts and abilitiesincluding each one of usbut society has been conflicted about those gifts, at times cherishing them and often stifling them over the centuries. Sylvia Browne writes from personal experience. After her own psychic abilities were revealed at age three, her mother tolerated but never encouraged her startling talent. Brownes own son would exhibit psychic abilities of his own as a toddler, which she fully embraced and supported. What Browne has learned over a lifetime is that psychic gifts are present at incredibly tender ages; they are, in her view, special blessings from God. Some children learn to develop them while others are pressed to ignore them. In Psychic Children she illuminates the phenomenon, issuing a call to society for more understanding and acceptance of these remarkable children.

Product : Turning Point: A Compelling Vision of America Today Had the Supreme Court Recounted the Florida Votes in the 2000 Presidential Ele
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Turning Point, an action-packed love story, takes us through the political looking-glass of America in the decade following the 2000 election -- providing an alternative scenario of progressive leadership in the face of daunting challenges to national security, counter-terrorism, economic policy, and environmental protection. Much of the story is told by Captain John "Rawhide" Cunningham, a decorated Air Force pilot turned Secret Service agent and military advisor to the president. The captain, who gets his thrills flying an F-16 at Mach 2, falls in love with the president's daughter, Karen Farnesworth. But there's one problem. She's a liberal, environmental studies graduate student at Georgetown and he's the grandson of a conservative swing-vote Supreme Court Justice. Can Captain Cunningham and Karen overcome the ideological chasm that divides Americans in the 21st century to find happiness? Cunningham's hair-raising encounter with an Iraqi surface-to-air missile and a helicopter tour near the Arctic Circle will keep readers glued to their seats, even if his passengers wish they were. The new president, too, is in for the ride of his life - with enemies ranging from conservative media to corrupt state officials, and from terrorist groups to Wall Street financiers. Enter Andy Jackson, an eloquent African-American voting rights lawyer who unearths a plot to steal the 2004 presidential election in Ohio. But can Andy save the popular Democratic president? And if not, where will a conservative Republican president take the country? Turning Point finally provides an entertaining and compelling answer to the decade-old question: How would the world be different today if the Supreme Court had allowed the votes in Florida to be counted, and a Democrat had been elected president? And what lessons can America learn in this new decade from the turmoil of the last?

I'll Tell Me Ma: A Childhood Memoir

Product : I'll Tell Me Ma: A Childhood Memoir
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The story of an ordinary boy growing up in Belfast who would go on to become world-famous as a hostage in Beirut, and author of the extraordinary testimony of imprisonment and survival that was "An Evil Cradling" In this remarkable and equally moving act of retrieval, Brian Keenan has captured the vanished world of 1950s Belfast in all its vivid vernacular and grey, post-war austerity. This is a a city where westerns were showing every afternoon at the Picture Theatre, where livestock was still herded onto the docks and the shipyards flourished. It was also a place of ghosts: the plague dead in the cemeteries, the family dead in the scrapbooks, a witch's box discovered under the stairs, the giant street bonfires every 12th of July to commemorate the Battle of the Boyne. By the end of the book, after his father's death and his mother's Alzheimer's, Belfast itself becomes a ghost city to Brian Keenan, the boy who leaves to become a man. Rich in detail and atmosphere, this is an affectionate story of a disaffected childhood. At the center is a shy, self-conscious boy of unusual moral integrity; a boy puzzled by religion and sectarianism, in love with books and music and full of curiosity about the world outside.

Description : Felix, a Jewish boy in Poland in 1942, is hiding from the Nazis in a Catholic orphanage. The only problem is that he doesn't know anything about the war, and thinks he's only in the orphanage while his parents travel and try to salvage their bookselling business. And when he thinks his parents are in danger, Felix sets off to warn them--straight into the heart of Nazi-occupied Poland. To Felix, everything is a story: Why did he get a whole carrot in his soup? It must be sign that his parents are coming to get him. Why are the Nazis burning books? They must be foreign librarians sent to clean out the orphanage's outdated library. But as Felix's journey gets increasingly dangerous, he begins to see horrors that not even stories can explain. Despite his grim surroundings, Felix never loses hope. Morris Gleitzman takes a painful subject and expertly turns it into a story filled with love, friendship, and even humor.

Black Market Truth

Product : Black Market Truth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A secret concealed for centuries, shrouded in myth, silenced by stone. A secret that if unleashed threatens to shake the very foundation of Western civilization. A secret that can remain hidden no longer. The quest begins in Rome, where a grizzly murder and a plundered tomb serve to ignite perhaps the most controversial conflict in human history. Inspector Domenico Conti is charged with the task of recovering the contents of the tomb, but as he delves deeper into the investigation, he is thrust into the center of a centuries-old struggle between truth and those who would stop at nothing to conceal it. But he is not alone. Dr. Dana McCarter, newly appointed director of the Advanced Institute for the Study of Antiquity, finds herself at the heart of the mystery when her considerable expertise in ancient Greek philosophy and her suspect involvement with the black market take her on a journey beginning in her New York University offices and sweeping around the globe--from the dark alleys of Moscow, to the rolling hills of the Italian countryside and the enigmatic relics of an ancient civilization, alive with long-kept secrets. As the search for answers leads them through a labyrinth of conspiracy and intrigue, Dana and Domenico must question everything they believe in and decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to know the truth.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Warlpiri women have a strength and resilience that comes from lives lived on the land. Their knowledge of country is handed down from generation to generation through story, ceremony, song and dance - women's business. This relationship to country has supported them through the hardship of desert life, the trauma of early European contact and the rapid changes of recent times. In Warlpiri Women's Voices Aboriginal women tell the stories of their lives and history on the Lander River in Central Australia. They speak of growing up in the days before Europeans arrived in their country; of learning about social relationships and religious ceremony; of hunting and gathering with the older women. Then come stories about their early encounters with Europeans and the changes that followed.

Serpents in the Sand: Essays in the Nonlinear Nature of Politics and Human Destiny

Product : Serpents in the Sand: Essays in the Nonlinear Nature of Politics and Human Destiny
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For decades, social scientists have worked with models that have sought to quantify and explain human behavior. The common foundation for nearly all of these mathematical applications is the assumption of linear progression, equilibrium, and stability. "Serpents in the Sand" not only argues that political life is fundamentally nonlinear but thoroughly analyzes specific instances of extreme nonlinearity in politics. By so doing, Courtney Brown offers a guide to the reader on how to apply nonlinearity, including chaos theory, to real-world situations. The author develops his argument by in-depth analysis of four examples covering a broad spectrum of political life. He considers, first, the relationship between individual rationality and the influence of a voter's political milieu. He then turns to look at the dynamics behind the Johnson vs. Goldwater landslide presidential election of 1964. The fall of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazi Germany provide a third case study, followed, by an analysis of the relationship between democratic electoral politics and the ecological environment. Highly original in its finding, "Serpents in the Sand" resembles no other work on politics. It is the first study of nonlinearity in political behavior to base its argument on specific examples rather than on analogies to physical and ecological systems. Substantively, the book draws provocative conclusions from the test cases, examining for instance the potential for disaster in the oscillatory relationship between the way U.S. presidents are elected and the management of the country's environment. In the end, "Serpents in the Sand" extends its argument to the philosophy of human existence, showing that human behavior is as nonlinear as all other processes in the universe. Courtney Brown is Associate Professor of Political Science, Emory University.

The Apostle of God: Paul and the Promise of Abraham

Product : The Apostle of God: Paul and the Promise of Abraham
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Most interpreters of Paul emphasize that for Paul, God, as universal lawgiver and judge, effects righteousness through Christ's saving death, that is, along lines entirely compatible with Paul's previously Pharisaic understanding of God. But since for Paul the power of Torah and tradition to save had in essence its legs kicked out from under it, the questions need to be asked, What made it possible for Gentiles to be saved? What effect did Paul's conversion have on his understanding of God? Loyola University Professor John L. White contends that to understand the Christ-event in accordance with Torah and Jewish tradition, Paul" the Apostle to the Gentiles" recognized in Abraham and Sarah (as neither ethnically Jewish nor Torah-bound) the explanation for the new status of Gentiles. Because of Christ, the promised seed of Abraham, the Gentiles receive the blessing of Abraham. For the apostle of God, this revelation came not from others or from human teaching, but from his encounter with the God of Abraham and Sarah. "In this unique study White proposes that Paul believed in a creator God who started spiritual creation with Abraham and continued with the resurrected Christ. The procreative God can be seen in Paul's use of analogies and rhetoric. Because of the new creation Paul expects a world in which God is the universal Father and in which Christ is Lord of God's universe and head of the family of faith. To demonstrate his thesis White includes extensive discussion of the Greco-Roman ruler cult and its impact on the readers of Paul's letters, as well as Paul himself. White's assertion that Paul's theology stems from a God of creation rather than a redeemer God will undoubtedlystimulate considerable discussion." " Graydon F.

Corporate Power and Ownership in Contemporary Capitalism: The Politics of Resistance and Domination

Product : Corporate Power and Ownership in Contemporary Capitalism: The Politics of Resistance and Domination
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Despite the influence corporations wield over all aspects of everyday life, there has been a remarkable absence of critical inquiry into the social constitution of this power. In analysing the complex relationship between corporate power and the widespread phenomenon of share ownership, this book seeks to map and define the nature of resistance and domination in contemporary capitalism. Drawing on a Marxist-informed framework, this book reconnects the social constitution of corporate power and changing forms of shareholder activism. In contrast to other texts that deal with corporate governance, this study examines a diverse and comprehensive set of themes, from socially responsible investing to labour-led shareholder activism and its limitations. Through this ambitious and critical study, author Susanne Soederberg demonstrates how the corporate governance doctrine represents an inherent feature of neoliberal rule, effectively disembedding and depoliticising relations of domination and resistance from the wider power and paradoxes of capitalism. Examining corporate governance and shareholder activism in a number of different contexts that include the United States and the global South, this important book will be of interest to students and scholars of international political economy, international relations and development studies. It will also be of relevance to a wider range of disciplines including finance, economics, and business and management studies.

High Stakes Accountability: Implications for Resources and Capacity (PB)

Product : High Stakes Accountability: Implications for Resources and Capacity (PB)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A volume in Research in Education Fiscal Policy and Practice Edited by Jennifer King Rice, University of Maryland and Christopher Roellke, Vassar College In this third volume of Research in Education Fiscal Policy and Practice, editors Jennifer King Rice and Christopher Roellke have assembled a diversity of research studies focused on the current policy environment of high stakes accountability and how this context has impacted educators and students at multiple levels of the system. This effort to leverage student performance through high stakes reform has accelerated and intensified considerably since the 2002 reauthorization of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB).In order for high stakes accountability reforms to realize their stated aims, targeted schools must have or acquire the resources and capacity to meet prescribed performance standards (Hess, 1999; Malen & Rice, 2005; Mintrop, 2003, 2004; Wong, et al., 1999), yet little systematic research has been assembled to document the implications of high stakes accountability systems on the resources and capacity of schools and school systems. This book aims to fill that gap. With this in mind, authors were asked to pay specific attention to challenges school systems confront as a result of NCLB and other high stakes reforms. The contributing authors were asked to think of policymakers and practitioners at local, state, and national levels as the intended audiences for their work. Our contributors responded with a collection of studies examining the relationship between high stakes reform and school district staffing, the recruitment and distribution of high qualityteachers, curriculum making, and the provision of supplemental educational services to children. Our book is organized into three sections. The first provides a framework for assessing the impact of high stakes accountability policy on school capacity and also addresses implementation challenges at both state and local levels. The second section focuses on the impact of federal and state policymaking on teacher staffing and workplace conditions. The final section includes three chapters that provide a range of critiques on federal policymaking, including legal challenges to NCLB.

Description : The oceans are vitally important to an understanding of how the Earth works as an integrated system because its chemical composition records transfer of elements through the Earth's geochemical reservoirs as well as defining how physical, biological and chemical processes combine to influence issues as diverse as climate change and the capacity of the oceans to remove toxic metals. Much modern marine geochemistry aims to link and integrate studies of the modern oceans with work using proxies to define how ocean chemistry and the ocean/atmospheric system has changed through time on a number of different timescales. Special focus in such work is the carbon cycle and its link to changes in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Volume 6 covers all the important topics needed for such an integrated approach, ranging from the contemporary ocean composition, transport processes in the ocean, paleoclimatology and paleo-oceanography from marine deposits, to the evolution of seawater composition.

Negotiated Settlements: Andean Communities and Landscapes Under Inka and Spanish Colonialism

Product : Negotiated Settlements: Andean Communities and Landscapes Under Inka and Spanish Colonialism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This multidisciplinary--indeed, transdisciplinary--combination of archaeological, historical, and ethnographic research reveals how the Andean people of southern Peru's Colca Valley experienced and responded to successive waves of colonial rule by the Inka and Spanish empires from the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries.While most research splits the prehispanic and post-conquest eras into separate domains of study, Steven Wernke's perspective explicitly combines archaeological and documentary sources to bridge the Spanish conquest of the Andes. He integrates GIS-based spatial analyses of documentary sources with archaeological survey and the only excavations of an early Spanish doctrinal settlement in the highland Andes to present a local perspective on how new communities and landscapes emerged as part of a continuous process of adapting to consecutive imperial occupations. Wernke's findings show how Spanish ideals of urban order penetrated this rural provincial setting as early as the first generation after the conquest, as well as the ways the integration of Spanish ideals depended on their resonance with prehispanic Andean precedents.Through integration of empirical research and social theory, this volume contributes to current debates on colonial and postcolonial theory, historical anthropology, and the growing field of colonial archaeology. At ease whether examining religious practice at early Franciscan mission settlements or reconstructing prehispanic Andean land use, Wernke argues that we should avoid thinking of relations within the Inka and Spanish states as a dichotomy between colonizers and colonized; instead he traces how new kinds of communities and landscapes were co-produced at the local scale.

The Forgotten Explorer: Samuel Prescott Fay's 1914 Expedition to the Northern Rockies

Product : The Forgotten Explorer: Samuel Prescott Fay's 1914 Expedition to the Northern Rockies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : North of Jasper, in the Canadian Rockies, is a large, roadless and spectacular wilderness of alpine flower meadows, glaciated peaks, canyons, waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Compared to the millions each year who visit Banff and Jasper national parks immediately to the south, this northern area sees few visitors. Fewer still have ever attempted to travel through this wilderness in one continuous trip. The first to do so was Samuel Prescott Fay in 1914. To this day, his exact route has never been duplicated. Fay and his party set out from Jasper on June 26, 1914, with five saddle horses and 16 pack horses. After a treacherous, slogging journey of 1,200 kilometres through wild, uncharted country they reached their destination on October 15, 1914, with the outfit completely intact. During his expedition, Fay kept a detailed journal (currently held at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC), which he provided to the US Biological Survey (now known as the US Fish & Wildlife Service) and to various Canadian government authorities. He also published several magazine articles about his discoveries. However, the journal in its entirety, with all his day-to-day observations, struggles and concerns, has never been published. Similarly, his maps, photographs and wildlife records have been preserved in various Canadian and US archives but never exhibited to a wider audience. Brought together for the first time in book form, they provide an early and dynamic record of an area that remains little known to this day. Complete with a large selection of never-before published photos and maps, "The Forgotten Explorer" is destined to become a classic of North American exploration history.

Economics and Development Studies

Product : Economics and Development Studies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Economics and Development Studies makes the economic dimension of discourse around controversial issues in international development accessible to second and third year undergraduate students working towards degrees in development studies. It also provides background reading for sixth formers, other undergraduate and postgraduate students and the informed general reader. Following an introductory chapter outlining the connections between development economics and development studies the book consists of eight substantive chapters dealing with the nature of development economics, economic development and structural change, economic growth and developing countries, development experience since the second world war, globalization, developing countries and international trade, economics and development policy, and economics and poverty analysis. The concluding chapter rounds off the book, reflecting on future prospects for developing countries within the world economy. The authors synthesize existing development economics literature, much of it very contemporary, in order to identify the salient issues and controversies and to make them accessible and understandable. It distinguishes differences within the economics profession, and between economists and non-economists, so that the reader is able to make informed judgments about the sources of these differences, and about their impact on policy analysis and policy advice. The book includes case studies, suggestions for further reading, and an explanation of the economic concepts used in the body of the chapters.
