Product : Supporting Reading in Grades 6-12: A Guide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Supporting Reading Grades 6-12: A Guide"addresses head-on the disturbing trend of declining leisure reading among students and demonstrates how school librarians can contribute to the development of lifelong reading habits as well as improve students' motivation and test scores. The book provides a comprehensive framework for achieving this: the READS curriculum, which stands for Read as a personal activity; Explore characteristics, history, and awards of creative works; Analyze structure and aesthetic features of creative works; Develop a literary-based product; and Score reading progress. Each of these five components is explained thoroughly, describing how school librarians can encourage students to read as individuals, in groups, and as school communities; support classroom teachers' instruction; and connect students to today's constantly evolving technologies. Used in combination with an inquiry/information-skills model, the READS curriculum enables school librarians to deliver a dynamic, balanced library program that addresses AASL's Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.

Emotions, Cognition and Behaviour

Product : Emotions, Cognition and Behaviour
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The seventeen contributions to this volume demonstrate the enormous progress that has been achieved recently in our understanding of emotions. Current cognitive formulations and information-processing models are challenged by new theory and by a solid body of empirical research presented by the distinguished authors. Addressing the problem of the relationship between developmental, social and clinical psychology, and psychophysiology, all agree that emotion concepts can be operationally defined and investigated as both independent and dependent variables. Cognitive and affective processes can no longer be studied in isolation; taken together, the chapters provide a useful map of an increasingly important and active boundary.

The Control of Childbirth: Mothers Versus Medicine Through the Ages

Product : The Control of Childbirth: Mothers Versus Medicine Through the Ages
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When childbirth moved from women's homes into hospitals, women lost more than they had bargained for. As the event became increasingly male-dominated and medically oriented, women's control of the experience all but vanished. Worse, recent clinical trials have demonstrated that most modern interventions and technological practices have not improved delivery outcomes and are not necessary in normal labor and birth. From pre-classical to present times, this work describes childbirth practices as they have developed through the ages. The author describes and critiques the evolution of modern midwifery and obstetrics, focusing especially on how, why, and when the process of childbirth became an increasingly sterile, male-dominated, and medically oriented event. Each chapter focuses on a different period, from the age of the female midwife (who oversaw the childbirth process for several centuries), through the origins of modern obstetrics and gynecology, and finally, to the increasing influence of technology in the practices that have prevailed for most of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The introduction contrasts dominant utilitarian and functionalist conceptions of management education with various alternatives. It argues the need for a critical and pluralistic form of management education whereby participants are introduced to the full diversity of appropriate perspectives and debates. The remainder of the book echoes this commitment by exploring a range of approaches, including those based in psychoanalysis, critical theory and poststructuralism. Throughout t

The Short Story Cycle: A Genre Companion and Reference Guide

Product : The Short Story Cycle: A Genre Companion and Reference Guide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : During the 1970s many distinguished writers began experimenting with the short story cycle, a literary form that achieved prominence in the early decades of the century through such works as James Joyce's Dubliners and Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio. Despite the growing interest of both writers and readers, no theoretical work has been done on this genre in the past ten years. The Short Story Cycle provides a wide-ranging survey of the subject, offering detailed analyses of nine "classic" short story cycles and an annotated listing of over 120 others, many by contemporary authors. In addition, the introduction includes a history of the genre and its related forms as well as a discussion of conventions associated with the cycle. Short story cycles by Joyce, Anderson, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Faulkner, Welty, O'Connor, and Updike are described in individual chapters. These works illustrate the genre's diversity and vitality, ranging from cycles that are explicitly related through chronology, plot, and character to collections that reveal subtler, implicit unities. The author looks at the ways different writers use repeated or developed characters, themes, myth, imagery, setting, point of view, and plot or chronology to create the sense of a larger whole. Chapter bibliographies supply information on relevant critical writings as well as biographical and autobiographical materials. The volume concludes with an annotated listing of important twentieth-century short-story cycles by American, British, European, Canadian, Australian, Polish, Soviet, and Latin American writers.

Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey: Volume 2, Linguistic Theory: Extensions and Implications

Product : Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey: Volume 2, Linguistic Theory: Extensions and Implications
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey is a comprehensive introduction to prevalent research in all branches of the field of linguistics, from syntactic theory to ethnography of speaking, from signed language to the mental lexicon, from language acquisition to discourse analysis. Each chapter has been written by a specialist particularly distinguished in his or her field who has accepted the challenge of reviewing the current issues and future prospects in sufficient depth for the scholar and with sufficient clarity for the student. Each volume can be read independently and has a particular focus. Volume I covers the internal structure of the language faculty itself, while Volume II considers the evidence for, and the implications of, a generativist approach to language. Psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics are covered in Volume III, and Volume IV concentrates on sociolinguistics and the allied fields of anthropological linguistics and discourse and conversation analysis. Several of the chapters in the work concentrate on the interface between different aspects of linguistic theory or the boundaries between linguistic theory and other disciplines. Thus in both its scope and in its approach the Survey is a unique and fundamental work of reference. It undoubtedly fulfils the editor's principal aim of providing a wealth of information, insight and ideas that will excite and challenge all readers with an interest in linguistics.

Essays on Pedagogy

Product : Essays on Pedagogy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Seven authoritative contributions to the emerging field of pedagogy and to comparative, cultural and policy studies in education. A must for those who want to do more than merely comply with received versions of 'best practice'. Pedagogy is at last gaining the attention in English-speaking countries which it has long enjoyed elsewhere. But is it the right kind of attention? Do we still tend to equate pedagogy with teaching technique and little more? Now that governments, too, have become interested in it, is pedagogy a proper matter for public policy and official prescription? In Essays on Pedagogy, Robin Alexander brings together some of his most powerful recent writing, drawing on research undertaken in Britain and other countries, to illustrate his view that to engage properly with pedagogy we need to apply cultural, historical and international perspectives, as well as evidence on how children most effectively learn and teachers most productively teach. The book includes chapters on a number of themes, expertly woven together:
  • the politicisation of school and classroom life and the trend towards a pedagogy of compliance;
  • the benefits and hazards of international comparison;
  • pedagogical dichotomies old and new, and how to avoid them;
  • how education and pedagogy might respond to a world in peril;
  • the rare and special chemistry of the personal and the professional which produces outstanding teaching;
  • the scope and character of pedagogy itself, as a field of enquiry and action.
For those who see teachers as thinking professionals, rather than as technicians who merely comply with received views of 'best practice', this book will open minds while maintaining a practical focus. For student teachers it will provide a framework for their development. Its strong and consistent international perspective will be of interest to educational comparativists, but is also an essential response to globalisation and the predicaments now facing humanity as a whole.

The Handbook of Manufacturing Engineering

Product : The Handbook of Manufacturing Engineering
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Today's fast-paced manufacturing culture demands a handbook that provides how-to, no-holds-barred, no-frills information. Completely revised and updated, the Handbook of Manufacturing Engineering, Second Edition is now presented in four volumes. Keeping the same general format as the first edition, this second edition not only provides more information but makes it more accessible. Each individual volume narrows the focus while broadening the coverage, giving you immediate access to the information you need. This four-volume set includes: Product Design and Factory Development - reveals how human factors affect productivity, cost, and safety in the workplace and why the modern manufacturing engineer must be well versed in these areas to maximize profit and minimize product liability. Factory Operations: Planning and Instructional Methods - covers practical cost estimating for manufacturing as well as workflow of production and materials and examines current manufacturing trends. Parts Fabrication: Principles and Process - discusses efficient deductive and systematic approaches to machine debugging and product manufacturing techniques while providing a refresher on the principles of structural mechanics. Assembly Processes: Finishing, Packaging, and Automation - deals exclusively with the surface finishing and coating of a product, exploring the varied options available for assembly processes, and emphasizes the importance of proper selection. The challenges presented by the fiercely technical world in which we live and work are met by the manufacturing engineer. Companies can no longer afford to allow the manufacturing engineer to learn on the job. Therefore, the manufacturing engineer must gain as much knowledge from as many credible sources as possible. Covering the global picture of manufacturing, this handbook shows you how to successfully apply manufacturing engineering skills on the job.

Wavelets in Physics

Product : Wavelets in Physics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book surveys the application of the recently developed technique of the wavelet transform to a wide range of physical fields, including astrophysics, turbulence, meteorology, plasma physics, atomic and solid state physics, multifractals occurring in physics, biophysics (in medicine and physiology) and mathematical physics. The wavelet transform can analyze scale-dependent characteristics of a signal (or image) locally, unlike the Fourier transform, and more flexibly than the windowed Fourier transform developed by Gabor fifty years ago. The continuous wavelet transform is used mostly for analysis, but the discrete wavelet transform allows very fast compression and transmission of data and speeds up numerical calculation, and is applied, for example, in the solution of partial differential equations in physics. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in many fields of physics, and to applied mathematicians and engineers interested in physical application.

Description : The advent of rare-earth permanent magnets (REPMs) has brought the realization of novel magnetic structures that are not practicable otherwise. So different are these remarkable materials from the earlier magnets that conventional design wisdom is inadequate to fully exploit their unique characteristics. Indeed, the conventional wisdom can lead to error or to the employment of cumbersome procedures that are quite unnecessary for REPMs. The salutary characteristics stem from two basic attributes of the rare-earth materials: 1) large intrinsic moments per unit volume; 2) extraordinarily high resistance to demagnetization by external or internal demagnetization fields.

Immigrants and Social Work: Thinking Beyond Borders of the United States

Product : Immigrants and Social Work: Thinking Beyond Borders of the United States
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Explore an understudied but vital aspect of the immigration experience Until now, the American social work literature on immigration has emphasized one part of the migration process--the experiences of immigrants in this country. Country-of-origin experiences that lead to emigration have received limited attention. Immigrants and Social Work: Thinking Beyond the Borders of the United States expands the focus of the literature, drawing clear connections between immigrants' situations in their countries of origin and how they adapt to their new country.This book presents a two (or more)country perspective on immigration, looking at migration as a process that requires an understanding of phenomena that occur in immigrants' country of origin and that impact their lives in the United States. It also looks at immigrants' back-and-forth movements between their home and new countries, and examines the immigration process when it involves movement to a third or fourth country--or, as in the case of the Armenian diaspora, a return to the home country after years of settlement in a new land.To provide immigrants with effective social services, it is essential to understand the situations that prompted them to uproot their lives and start over in a new country. Immigrants and Social Work: Thinking Beyond the Borders of the United States provides an unflinching look at many of these country-of-origin issues, examining: mental health issues that result from the traumatic experiences of undocumented Mexican immigrants the essential link between international social work and social work with immigrants and refugees in the United States cross-national collaboration between educators in the United States and Armenia that is helping to provide vital services to Armenian refugees the phenomenon of return migration the migration experiences of women living in towns along the United States/Mexico border culturally competent mental health service delivery for Chinese immigrants circular migration between Puerto Rico and the United States the challenges facing impoverished Dominican immigrants to the United States--and a look at the relationship between the two countries' policies regarding migrationImmigrants and Social Work: Thinking Beyond the Borders of the United States is important reading for social work professionals who serve immigrant populations. It is also an ideal ancillary text for courses in international social work, family policy, social work with immigrants and refugees, child welfare, and social work practice with families, as well as any social work course that covers Chinese, Mexican, Armenian, Puerto Rican, or Dominican immigrant populations. Make it a part of your teaching/professional collection today.

Description : Em Habanim Semeha, written in Hebrew while Rabbi Teichthal was in hiding in Budapest in 1943, and perhaps the last substantial work of Judaica published in Holocaust Europe, marks the author's break with the ultra-Orthodox theology he had espoused before the war. A well-known Hasidic rabbi who was murdered by the Nazis in 1945 he castigates his colleagues for rejecting all initiatives for redemption as represented by the Zionist enterprise. Based on an encyclopedic knowledge of the sources of Jewish law and thought Rabbi Teichthal argues for the legitimacy of such an involvement.

The Margins of Society in Late Medieval Paris

Product : The Margins of Society in Late Medieval Paris
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book discusses the 'marginal' people of late medieval Paris, the large and shifting group of men and women who existed on the margins of conventional organized society. Professor Geremek examines the various groups which made up the marginal world - beggars, prostitutes, procuresses and pimps, petty criminals, casual workers and the unemployed - their haunts in and around Paris, their way of life, and their relation to 'normal' society. Professor Geremek has made with this book a major contribution to the study of late medieval society which illuminates the little-known area of the medieval underworld in a fascinating and very accessible manner. Translated by Jean Birrell from the French edition of 1976, this edition includes a new introduction by Jean-Claude Schmitt, which offers a frank appraisal of the author's life and career to date.

The Progressive Assault on Laissez Faire: Robert Hale and the First Law and Economics Movement

Product : The Progressive Assault on Laissez Faire: Robert Hale and the First Law and Economics Movement
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Law and economics is the leading intellectual movement in law today. This book examines the first great law and economics movement in the early part of the twentieth century through the work of one of its most original thinkers, Robert Hale. Beginning in the 1890s and continuing through the 1930s, progressive academics in law and economics mounted parallel assaults on free-market economic principles. They showed first that "private," unregulated economic relations were in fact determined by a state-imposed regime of property and contract rights. Second, they showed that the particular regime of rights that existed at that time was hard to square with any common-sense notions of social justice. Today, Hale is best known among contemporary legal academics and philosophers for his groundbreaking writings on coercion and consent in market relations. The bulk of his writing, however, consisted of a critique of natural property rights. Taken together, these writings on coercion and property rights offer one of the most profound and elaborated critiques of libertarianism, far outshining the better-known efforts of Richard Ely and John R. Commons. In his writings on public utility regulation, Hale also made important contributions to a theory of just, market-based distribution. This first, full-length study of Hale's work should be of interest to legal, economic, and intellectual historians.

Product : Professional Issues in Child and Youth Care Practice. Edited by Kiaras Gharabaghi
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides an overview of the core professional issues in the field of child and youth care practice. The author explores themes ranging from relationships and the exploration of Self to career building and field-specific approaches to management. The book is written from a pragmatic perspective, and serves both to advance current thinking in the field about professional issues as well as to provide the student of child and youth care practice and practitioners with practical and accessible approaches to developing a strong and sustainable professional identity. All of the themes in this book are explored within a context of ethical decision-making and practice approaches informed by a commitment to children's rights and empowerment. Throughout the discussions, concepts and themes are considered in relation to four specific lenses: the power lens, the diversity lens, the language lens and the transitioning from theory to practice lens. These lenses serve to ensure that the reader adopts a critical understanding of the professional issues in the field and is able to develop his or her own professional identity while mitigating the power and identity issues necessarily associated with being a practitioner in a helping profession.

Dub: Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae

Product : Dub: Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When Jamaican recording engineers Osbourne "King Tubby" Ruddock, Errol Thompson, and Lee "Scratch" Perry began crafting "dub" music in the early 1970s, they were initiating a musical revolution that continues to have worldwide influence. Dub is a sub-genre of Jamaican reggae that flourished during reggae's "golden age" of the late 1960s through the early 1980s. Dub involves remixing existing recordings--electronically improvising sound effects and altering vocal tracks--to create its unique sound. Just as hip-hop turned phonograph turntables into musical instruments, dub turned the mixing and sound processing technologies of the recording studio into instruments of composition and real-time improvisation. In addition to chronicling dub's development and offering the first thorough analysis of the music itself, author Michael Veal examines dub's social significance in Jamaican culture. He further explores the "dub revolution" that has crossed musical and cultural boundaries for over thirty years, influencing a wide variety of musical genres around the globe.

A Million and One Ways to Be One-In-A-Million: How to Separate Yourself from the Herd.

Product : A Million and One Ways to Be One-In-A-Million: How to Separate Yourself from the Herd.
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The title grabs you, doesn't it? Of course everyone wants to set themselves apart from the herd. But how do you do that? And can just about anybody do that? A Million and One Ways to be One-in-a-Million answers those questions. It contains and conveys a set of lessons and examples of behavior that, if practiced, allow us to be different-different in very positive ways. Is there anyone who wakes up in the morning and says, "Today I want to go out and be part of the herd," or, "Today I think I'll just blend in with the masses"? However, doing your job well in today's business environment is the price of entry. Just doing a good job doesn't ensure success and it isn't the attribute that sets us apart. The differentiating factor really lay in being different. So in today's business culture, whether you work in a mega-multinational company, a small business venture, or even if you work on your own for yourself, in order to be most successful, we must find a way to distinguish ourselves from the rest of the pack. Companies have strived to do this with their brands and products since the birth of consumerism. But, just like with products, it's not about being gimmicky or superficial; the old "dress for success" isn't good enough and isn't where we've evolved. What this book is about is providing ways for you to differentiate yourself in a manner that is valued and appreciated, and in a way that should produce a meaningful impact to your success. Most of these observations transcend business, and actually have broad appeal and relevance that can be applied in our personal lives, thereby developing ways to become one-in-a-million with our spouses, children, friends, and colleagues. * * * * * * * * A Million and One Ways to be One-in-a-Million is specifically constructed to be a quick read catering to the needs of the target audience: a generation of Americans who, at this time in their lives, work hard and play hard, and are looking for the best bang for the buck in all that they do. As the author explains, some of the most important and impactful advice he has ever received was given in a sentence or two. A Million and One Ways to be One-in-a-Million delivers this bang for the buck.

Mental Spaces: Aspects of Meaning Construction in Natural Language

Product : Mental Spaces: Aspects of Meaning Construction in Natural Language
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book offers a highly original, integrated treatment of issues that play a central role in linguistic semantics, philosophy of language, and cognitive approaches to meaning. It is based on the idea that expressions of language are not interpreted directly via truth conditions; rather, at a certain cognitive level they help to build up mental spaces, internally structured and linked to one another. Because the construction of spaces is typically underdetermined by the expressions, simple principles yield multiple possibilities and apparently complex ambiguities. Focusing on the mental constructions that can be associated with expressions rather than merely on the expressions themselves, Fauconnier reveals a general, uniform, and elegant organization that is responsible for superficially diverse and complex phenomena. A finding that challenges several traditional and widespread views on meaning and natural language, with far-reaching implications: adequate theories of truth and reference cannot bypass the cognitive space-construction process, and standard linguistic arguments for hidden structural levels are invalidated. Gilles Fauconnier is director of studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and Professor of Linguistics at the University of Paris VIII. A Bradford Book.

In the Name of War: Judicial Review and the War Powers Since 1918

Product : In the Name of War: Judicial Review and the War Powers Since 1918
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For more than a century, in settings where the political branches of government were unable or unwilling to exercise self-restraint, the Supreme Court was disposed to treat federal war powers legislation as exempt from judicial review, an attitude that permitted numerous abuses from Prohibition to press censorship. Though the First World War officially ended in 1918, the Senate's rejection of the Versailles Treaty kept the United States in a legal state of war until late 1921. Exploring the interplay between political and social events and the evolution of legal theory Christopher May tells how during this challenging three-year period, the government invoked the war powers to pursue ends otherwise beyond its reach: with the backing of Congress and seemingly free from judicial scrutiny, the Wilson administration took over the country's rail and communications systems, outlawed profiteering, prosecuted strikers, suppressed "radicals' and censored the leftist press. None of these measures bore any true relation to the war, says the author, who then describes the course through which the Supreme Court, confronted by this pattern of abuse, finally abandoned its long-standing refusal to review the constitutionality of war powers legislation. "In the Name of War" explores the roles played by Woodrow Wilson, Joseph Tumulty, Albert Burleson, and A. Mitchell Palmer--men whose personal ambitions frequently shaped official policy in the late Progressive Era. After analyzing the Court's more recent record, including the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II, May draws some practical conclusions about the use of judicial intervention in time of crisis that are sure to attract the attention of lawyers, legal scholars, historians, and students of the Constitution.

Description : There is a saying in Darujhistan, the city of blue fire, that love and death shall arrive together, dancing . . . It is summer and the heat is oppressive. However the discomfiture of the small round man in the faded red waistcoat is not entirely due to the sun. Dire portents plague his nights and haunt the city's streets like fiends of shadow. Assassins still skulk in alleyways, but the hunters have become the hunted. Hidden hands pluck the strings of tyranny like a fell chorus, and strangers have arrived. While the bards sing their tragic tales, somewhere in the distance can be heard the baying of hounds. All is palpably not well. And in Black Coral, where Anomander Rake, Son of Darkness rules, memories of ancient crimes are stirring, intent on revenge. Could it be that Love and Death are about to arrive . . . hand in hand, and dancing? This new chapter in Erikson's monumental series is epic fantasy at its most imaginative, and storytelling at its most exciting. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

The Spirit of Notre Dame: Legends, Traditions, and Inspiration from One of America#S Most Beloved Universities

Product : The Spirit of Notre Dame: Legends, Traditions, and Inspiration from One of America#S Most Beloved Universities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Finally, a book that captures the spirit of Notre Dame. One of the most famous universities in the world, Notre Dame has come to symbolize excellence and faith in action, which sets it apart as an institution and a place that has deeply influenced millions of people. Call it a mystique or grace; there is something about the lure and lore of Notre Dame that evokes admiration and respect. THE SPIRIT OF NOTRE DAME marks the first time that a single book collects the stories that personify the character that is uniquely Notre Dame. Notre Dame is the Golden Dome, the Victory March, the Basilica, the Grotto, playing fields, dorms, chapels, the library, classrooms, and research centers. But most of all, it is people: from faith-filled visionaries and world-renowned scholars to celebrated coaches and athletes to professors, students, janitors and cooks, volunteers and friends. From the university's bold founder, Rev. Edward Sorin, to American legends of the football field (and silver screen) Knute Rockne, the Gipper, and Rudy, Notre Dame is the setting for some of our culture's most uplifting stories of perseverance in the face of tremendous odds. THE SPIRIT OF NOTRE DAME tells these stories and more . . . of miraclulous athletic comebacks and incredible victories against the odds, of the Notre Dame graduate who survived the Bataan Death March by focusing on the university, of football stars like Chris Zorich who overcame tough circumstances, and of walk-on players who realized their dreams of playing for the Fighting Irish. Included in these pages are stories of the women's teams who have won national championships in basketball and soccer, and dedicated leaders such as Fathers Corby, Hesburgh, and Malloy; professors Frank O'Malley, Emil T. Hofman, and a line of great teachers whose blood is in the bricks; coaches Leahy, Ara, Holtz, Willingham, and McGraw; and a host of graduates like Dr. Tom Dooley and Judge Ann Williams who have devoted themselves to serving others both on the campus and in the world. Engaging, amusing, and inspiring, THE SPIRIT OF NOTRE DAME is the absolute essential title for the millions of people who have a place in their heart for the Fighting Irish.

From the Other Shore: Russian Social Democracy After 1921

Product : From the Other Shore: Russian Social Democracy After 1921
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is an inquiry into the possibilities of politics in exile. Russian Mensheviks, driven out of Soviet Russia and their party stripped of legal existence, functioned abroad in the West--in Berlin, Paris, and New York--for an entire generation. For several years they also continued to operate underground in Soviet Russia. Bereft of the usual advantages of political actors, the Mensheviks succeeded in impressing their views upon social democratic parties and Western thinking about the Soviet Union. The Soviet experience through the eyes of its first socialist victims is recreated here for the first time from the vast storehouse of archival materials and eyewitness interviews. The exiled Mensheviks were the best informed and most perceptive observers of the Soviet scene through the 1920s and 1930s. From today's perspective the Mensheviks' analyses and reflections strikingly illuminate the causes of the failure of the Soviet experiment. This book also probes the fate of Marxism and democratic socialism as it tracks the activities and writings of a remarkable group of men and women--including Raphael Abramovitch, Fedor and Lidia Dan, David Dallin, Boris Nicolaevsky, Solomon Schwarz, and Vladimir Woytinsky--entangled in the most momentous events of this century. Their contribution to politics and ideas in the age of totalitarianism merits scrutiny, and their story deserves to be told.

Description : "The English Novel In History" describes and analyses the most striking features and developments in British prose fiction since the Second World War. Steven Connor focuses on the characteristic power of the novel's address--its power to project, sustain and diversify its audience. "The English Novel In History" develops richly particularised analyses of a number of key areas of postwar fiction. Connor discusses works which inherit and adapt the tradition of the "condition of England" novel, both from the inside perspective of British-born writers such as Angus Wilson and Margaret Drabble and the "outside in" perspectives of novelists such as Hanif Kureishi, Kazuo Ishiguro and Salman Rushdie. He examines novels' treatment of history as well as the self-conscious re-writing of the novel's own history, and concludes with an analysis of the complex meditations on the nature of narrative ending offered by such authors as George Orwell and Julian Barnes, posing various kinds of political, economic and military catastrophe in the postmodern world.

Description : Did God create life, or did the world spontaneously appear? Drawing on meticulous research into the scientific and religious realms, "Our Universe" is a detailed study of the origin of the universe, life on Earth, and the destiny of mankind. Biophysics professor Faiz M. Khan combines both faith and science to present a balanced overview of a highly controversial topic. Khan explores the scientific analysis of creation with knowledge-based dialogue about the most modern scientific thought on the beginnings of the universe, cosmic evolution, and biologic evolution; and he contrasts these with the creationist view held by the world's major religions. Concise and compelling, "Our Universe" provides an unbiased and comprehensive view of some of philosophy's most debated topics and serves as a thoughtful springboard for further discussion. Khan's discourse also reflects one man's painstaking quest for an answer to a fundamental question at the very core of our existence.

Approaches to Teaching Scott's Waverley Novels

Product : Approaches to Teaching Scott's Waverley Novels
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Scott's Waverley novels, as his fiction is collectively known, are increasingly popular in the classroom, where they fit into courses that explore topics from Victorianism and nationalism to the rise of the publishing industry and the cult of the author. As the editors of this volume recognize, however, Scott's fictions present unusual challenges to instructors. Students need guidance, for instance, in navigating Scott's use of vernacular Scots and antique styles, sorting through his historical and geographical references, and distinguishing his multiple authorial personas. The essays in this volume are designed to help teachers negotiate these and other intriguing features of the Waverley novels. Part 1, "Materials," guides instructors in selecting appropriate editions of the Waverley novels for classroom use. It also categorizes and lists background and critical studies of Scott's novels and recommends additional readings for students, as well as multimedia instructional resources. The essays in part 2 examine the novels' relation to Scottish history, Scott's use of language, and concepts of Romantic authorship; consider gender, legal, queer, and multicultural approaches; recommend strategies for teaching Scott alongside other authors such as Jane Austen; and offer detailed ideas for introducing individual novels to students--from imagining Ivanhoe in the context of nineteenth-century medievalism to reconsidering how the ethical issues raised in "Old Mortality" reflect on religion and violence in our own day.

Does Consciousness Cause Behavior?

Product : Does Consciousness Cause Behavior?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Our intuition tells us that we, our conscious selves, cause our own voluntary acts. Yet scientists have long questioned this; Thomas Huxley, for example, in 1874 compared mental events to a steam whistle that contributes nothing to the work of a locomotive. New experimental evidence (most notable, work by Benjamin Libet and Daniel Wegner) has brought the causal status of human behavior back to the forefront of intellectual discussion. This multidisciplinary collection advances the debate, approaching the question from a variety of perspectives. The contributors begin by examining recent research in neuroscience that suggests that consciousness does not cause behavior, offering the outline of an empirically based model that shows how the brain causes behavior and where consciousness might fit in. Other contributors address the philosophical presuppositions that may have informed the empirical studies, raising questions about what can be legitimately concluded about the existence of free will from Libet's and Wegner's experimental results. Others examine the effect recent psychological and neuroscientific research could have on legal, social, and moral judgments of responsibility and blame--in situations including a "Clockwork Orange"-like scenario of behavior correction.

Belief in Psychology: A Study in the Ontology of Mind

Product : Belief in Psychology: A Study in the Ontology of Mind
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Belief in Psychology "tackles the knotty problem of how to treat the propositional attitudes states such as beliefs, desires, hopes and fears within cognitive science. Jay Garfield asserts that the propositional attitudes can and must play useful theoretical roles in the science of the mind and stresses the importance of their social context in this sophisticated and original argument. Garfield proposes his own alternative to the apparent dilemma of either scrapping the propositional attitudes or of making room for them within a dimly foreseen, futuristic cognitive science. He provides a characterization of the nature of propositional attitudes conceived as psychological states, and of their role in cognitive science. They must, he argues, be understood as relations between their bearers and their environments, including, in the case of persons, their social and linguistic environments. Understanding them in this way is consonant with current practice in empirical cognitive science and provides a philosophically useful analysis of mental representation. Along the way, Garfield discusses the relationship between the enterprise of science and our commonsense conception of ourselves and the world, and the ways in which this relation constrains our understanding of the propositional attitudes, and illuminates a realistic interpretation of a psychology of representational states and processes. Belief in Psychology is the only book that adopts such a view, and it is unique in providing a sustained critique of eliminativism, instrumentalism, and computational individualism - the main competing proposals within philosophy of cognitive science for eliminating or reconciling propositional attitudes.

Best of the West: New Stories from the Wide Side of the Missouri

Product : Best of the West: New Stories from the Wide Side of the Missouri
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "My sense in reading the assemblage of stories collected here is that the Western short story is still very much finding its way--which is, I think, as it should be. Only miracles--like Annie Proulx's] Sagebrush Kid--can be expected to leap fully formed from the soil, ready, in an instant, to meet our every expectation. The form and essence of a Western short story seems to be a work in progress, one which, if I were to place my bets, will continue to be sculpted by the extremes of geography and by immigration: by a ceaseless procession of strangers riding into town, even as other strangers--often magnificent strangers--are going rapidly extinct. Future Western short stories will also continue to be shaped by the yet undefinable and probably always undefinable thing--a certain largeness of spirit. The best and strongest of these stories shimmer with that thing, which, though invisible, somehow yet makes itself known powerfully." --Rick Bass, from the foreword Best of the West: New Stories from the Wide Side of the Missouri, an annual anthology of exceptional short fiction rooted in the western United States, debuted in 1988 and continued publication until 1992. Recognizing that the West remains rewarding territory for literary explorations, James Thomas and Seth Horton are now reviving the series in Best of the West 2009. Thomas and Horton combed some 250 literary journals and magazines to gather these eighteen stories published since the fall of 2007. They come from both emerging and established writers, including Lee K. Abbott, Louise Erdrich, Dagoberto Gilb, Antonya Nelson, Joyce Carol Oates, and Annie Proulx. Like Bass, the editors believe "the Western short story" inhabits a wide territory; the subjects in this collection range from illegal immigrants tending illegal crops in California's national forests, to mismatched Mormon missionaries on the conversion trail in Nevada, to a Native American college student exploring her sexuality, to Papa Hemingway's meditations as he loads the shotgun in his Idaho cabin. As these stories make clear, the West continues to shape our literary landscape. Thomas and Horton have preserved the best of that work in this vital anthology.

Pathological Gambling

Product : Pathological Gambling
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As states have moved from merely tolerating gambling to running their own games, as communities have increasingly turned to gambling for an economic boost, important questions arise. Has the new age of gambling increased the proportion of pathological or problem gamblers in the U.S. population? Where is the threshold between "social betting" and pathology? Is there a real threat to our families, communities, and the larger society? Pathological Gambling explores America's experience of gambling, examining: -- The diverse and frequently controversial issues surrounding the definition of pathological gambling. -- Its co-occurrence with disorders such as alcoholism, drug abuse, and depression. -- Its social characteristics and its economic consequences, both good and bad, for communities. -- The role of video gaming, Internet gambling, and other technologies in the development of gambling problems. -- Treatment approaches and their effectiveness, from Gambler's Anonymous to cognitive therapy to pharmacology. This book provides the most up-to-date information available on the prevalence of pathological and problem gambling in the United States, including a look at populations that may have a particular vulnerability to gambling: women, adolescents, and minority populations. The committee describes the effects of problem gambling on families, friendships, employment, finances, and propensity to crime. How do pathological gamblers perceive and misperceive randomness and chance? What are the causal pathways to pathological gambling? What do genetics, brain imaging, and other studies tell us about the biology of gambling? Is there a bit of sensation-seeking in all of us? Whoneeds treatment? What do we know about the effectiveness of different policies for dealing with pathological gambling? The book reviews the available facts and frames the intriguing questions yet to be answered. Pathological Gambling will be the odds-on favorite for anyone interested in gambling in America: policymakers, public officials, economics and social researchers, treatment professionals, and concerned gamblers and their families.

The Agricultural Systems of the World: An Evolutionary Approach

Product : The Agricultural Systems of the World: An Evolutionary Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is about the prevalent characteristics and distribution of the major agricultural systems of the world - shifting cultivation, wet rice cultivation, pastoral nomadism, Mediterranean agriculture, mixed farming, dairying, plantations, ranching and large-scale grain production. In Part One some major periods and processes that have affected agriculture are discussed. Chapter 2 deals with the origins and early diffusion of agriculture and its significance. Chapter 3 deals with the subsequent diffusion of crops and livestock, particularly since the discovery of the New World, and Chapter 4 with the effect upon agriculture of industrialisation and urbanisation since 1850. In Part Two of the book some description of each type of agriculture is given. It is the author's belief that there can be no adequate account of the prevailing character of world agriculture without recourse to the evolution of agricultural systems. Thus each chapter in Part Two is an essay on the historical development of each of the major systems.

The West Window

Product : The West Window
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The West Window" tells a heartwarming story of survival, change, and friendship. The lives of a sixty year old farmer, Harold, and a nineteen year old orphan, Shirley, come together in a struggle to find compatibility on a Vermont hill farm. Shirley is eager to move forward with the onrush of new agricultural technology, and Harold is determined to fight change. Shirley is haunted by her violent past involving a kid now grown into a maniacal character who has vowed revenge. She also struggles to free herself of the haunts of rape that resulted in pregnancy. A romance with Joe Iverson, Agricultural Agent, blooms and then fails, leaving her devastated. The author vividly portrays life on a small farm in the spring, summer, and fall of 1948 when Vermont was intensely agricultural. This is a story of two people finding wholeness, healing, and redemption. The author is a graduate of the University of Vermont majoring in Agricultural Economics. He has been a dairy farmer for forty years in East Montpelier, Vermont. His wife, Donna and he have raised four children and have twelve grandchildren, most of who continue to be involved in the dairy infrastructure, from the hobby level to commercial dairying. Prior to farming in East Montpelier, he spent five years employed by the University of Vermont Extension Service. "The West Window is a fine novel of personal evolution and the loving embrace of circumstance. What a pleasure to read someone who clearly knows what he is talking about from his long farming experience." Christopher Noel author of A Frail House (stories) and In the Unlikely Event of a Water Landing (memoir). "This is a good story, full of action and character, aboutthe clash of the old ways with the new. There are plenty of characters here too, and the best one is Harold, the old man that owns the farm. Everyone who lives in Vermont will recognize him with affection, and everyone else will be glad to have met him." Ruth Porter, editor of Father to Daughter, and the author of The Simple Life, a novel.

Product : Wildfire and Americans: How to Save Lives, Property, and Your Tax Dollars
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Wildfire and Americans" is a passionate, deeply informed appeal for us to acknowledge that wildfire is not a fire problem but a people problem. There are no natural disasters, only people in disastrous circumstances. Many Americans are in the wrong places, channeled there by wrong policies. Roger G. Kennedy has pieced together the untold history of the Cold War-era policies that deliberately emptied America's cities and subsidized the suburban and exurban encroachment into a dangerous landscape that is becoming increasingly precarious with global warming. Kennedy's understanding of the United States' history of transgressing nature's limits, his grasp of how politicians and industries stand to gain by leaving the problem unsolved, his familiarity with the science of fire, and, finally, his faith-grounded conviction regarding our moral responsibility toward both our environment and our fellow human beings make "Wildfire and Americans" more than a history of policies gone terribly awry--it is also a plan of action to reverse more than fifty years of wrong-headed and misguided policy.

Neurobiology Comparatve Cognition P Pod

Product : Neurobiology Comparatve Cognition P Pod
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book represents a unique and elaborate exposition of the neural organization of language, memory, and spatial perception in a wide variety of species including humans, bees, fish, rodents, and monkeys. The editors have united the comparative approach with its emphasis on evolutionary determinants of behavior, the neurobiological approach with its emphasis on the neural determinants of behavior, and the cognitive approach with its emphasis on understanding higher-order mental functions. The combination of these three approaches provides an unusual look at the neurobiology of comparative cognition, and should stimulate increased investigations in this field and related disciplines.

Product : The Face of a Woman: Images from Around the World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "In the spring of 1978, nearing my thirty-seventh year and determined to bring a deeper sense of fulfillment into my life, I sold my house and land in northern Vermont and began spending as much time as possible with rural and indigenous people. "The different cultures proved to be empowering teachers.... Each village, each family, reflected new ways of living.... The Inuit, who gave their babies away to those with none, taught me unconditional love. The Native Americans held a reverence for the natural world, Grandfather Sky and Mother Earth. The Maoris knew the joy of singing. The Australian Aborigines believed that the dream world was more real than the ordinary world.... The Samoans believed that whoever appeared on their doorstep became family". -- from the Preface Peaceful, wise, filled with life and love in a world fraught with strife and despair -- such are the faces you will meet in these two volumes. With his eloquent pairings of image and word, each telling its own rich story, Ethan Hubbard brilliantly captures the connectedness of people from the farthest reaches of the world. Uplifting, refreshing, enlightening, these books reveal gentleness and strength, laughter and hope -- the true face of humanity.

Imagine how much harder it would be if your mother told you that your biological father--whom you'd never met--was a Nobel prize-winning genius?

What if you found out that you'd been living a lie, and that the truth was darker than you could have imagined? Does it matter who you come from? Or are we all just made from dust? In Rune Michaels's most powerful novel yet, she examines the fragile emotions surrounding finding out who we are and what we're made of.

The Construction and Rearticulation of Race in a Post-Racial America

Product : The Construction and Rearticulation of Race in a Post-Racial America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : n my view, The Negro Problem in 2008 is part law, part politics, part oppression, part internalized oppression and part ideology. As America becomes more polarized into red states and blues states, into liberals and conservatives, into right, left, and even further into black and white, racism has become even more pronounced if not more difficult to identify. The Negro Problem of 2008 is helped along willingly by blacks whose sense of inferiority and internalized oppression so blind them that they too deal in oppressive and denigrating images for profits. Working hand in hand with the white executives who profit from those images and the white liberals who justify this denigration, they too add grist to the mill of oppression and exclusion. Members of the American media have moved from reporting the news to advancing their opinions and discussing race in a roundabout way, which they claim is race neutral, but which is in fact race conscious. How has their unfettered power defined the coverage of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary? What role does rap music, with its revival of the most vile and base stereotypes of black men from slavery and the Jim Crow era and its attendant culture of debauchery, play in stoking racial subordination and domination? Does the fact that so many rap artists are black provide them with the veritable black pass to lyrically and virtually debase and defile black women and themselves that whites, by virtue of their whiteness, are denied?

Description : Uncle Jean did the one thing you're never supposed to do in a kayak. He leaned over hard, so that all his weight bore down on one side of the kayak. And Uncle Jean is big. We were about to capsize. Aunt Daisy's words rang in my head, like a song you can't forget, no matter how hard you try. "Three minutes until you lose sensation in your extremities." I wriggled my fingers and toes. While I still could. Pete likes to play pranks. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it gets a laugh. When he impersonates his vice-principal on a radio call-in show, he goes too far and is suspended from school. Pete's parents send him to spend the summer working with his uncle, a whale-watching guide in a tourist town far from the city. When a whale is injured by a reckless tour guide, Pete struggles to save the animal. Then Pete has to pull the most important prank of his life to bring the guide to justice. This is Monique Polak's first entry in the Orca Soundings series. She teaches writing and English literature.
