Quality in Frozen Food

Product : Quality in Frozen Food
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book presents a comprehensive, integrated view of quality in frozen foods. It addresses quality from a number of perspectives: technological (mechanical and cryogenic methods of freezing); categorical (classification of quality loss); analytical (measurement of quality); theoretical (model building); applied (preventative treatments), and administrative (policy). The book focuses on the principles of freezing and the concepts of quality, and is therefore applicable to research and development of all types of products. Features include: technological and fundamental features of freezing; types of deterioration that occur in frozen foods; treatment to minimize quality losses during freezing and storage; methods to assess quality losses; strategies that impact a frozen product's quality and ultimate consumer acceptance.

American Business: A Two-Minute Warning: Ten Changes Managers Must Make to Survive Into the 21st Century

Product : American Business: A Two-Minute Warning: Ten Changes Managers Must Make to Survive Into the 21st Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In less than two decades -- about "two minutes" in world history time -- Japan will succeed the United States as the world's productivity leader, and in the twenty-first century this Pacific nation will become the world's economic leader. The United States will drop back to number two or three in the global economy, burdened with a large foreign debt, and faced with a relatively lower standard of living, following the path of decline of Great Britain and other former world leaders. So predict C. Jackson Grayson, Jr., and Carla O'Dell, two of the world's leading authorities on productivity, "unless" American government, management, and labor can work together-and soon -- to revive American productivity growth and bolster the quality of American products and services. Showing how hundreds of companies including Xerox, Federal Express, Ford, IBM, and Motorola are successfully responding to the competitive challenge, the authors make a compelling case that American industry can benefit from the lessons of history, learn to adjust, and thus retain its world economic leadership. Speaking directly to managers, Grayson and O'Dell offer a wealth of practical suggestions for American business in their specific ten-part "Agenda for Adjustment." Based on their experience with successful firms, the Agenda spells out workable recommendations for improvement -- from operating systems and organization structure, to employment stability and compensation systems. "American Business: A Two-Minute Warning" also addresses the role of government in industrial revitalization. Grayson and O'Dell contend that much of what is recommended for government action tackles the wrong problems. Not onlywill such proposed responses fail, they argue, but they will make the situation worse. They then make specific suggestions for what government should -- and should not -- do. The stakes are enormous. Few single issues will have a greater impact than productivity and quality on the everyday lives, aspirations, and futures of Americans and their children. Grayson and O'Dell's message' grow or decline. A two-minute warning. And there are no timeouts left.

Product : Friend Is Not a Verb
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : You know things are bad when your dreams come with a washed-up '80s soundtrack Henry "Hen" Birnbaum's sister, Sarah, missing for over a year, has come home unexpectedly, with no explanation at all. But he can't leave well enough alone; Hen needs to figure out why she disappeared, even if she won't tell him. It's not like he has anything better to do. His girlfriend just dumped him and kicked him out of their band. He can't play the bass worth crap anyway. His social life consists of night after night of VH1 marathons with his best friend and next-door neighbor, the neurotic Emma Wood. Hen's sure the answers to Sarah's lost year lie with Gabriel Stern--Sarah's friend from college who also happens to be a twenty-two-year-old fugitive from the law and Hen's bass teacher . . . too bad he can't play bass worth crap either. A month into his quest, Hen has had countless consultations with Emma, watched approximately fifty-three reruns of "Behind the Music," and made one new Facebook friend. Unfortunately, he's no closer to any revelations about his sister. The thing is, he's too distracted to notice it, but while Hen's been looking for all the answers, something mind-blowing happened: He got a life.

Renewable Energy Systems: The Choice and Modeling of 100% Renewable Solutions

Product : Renewable Energy Systems: The Choice and Modeling of 100% Renewable Solutions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this practical guide, globally recognized renewable energy researcher and professor Henrik Lund describes the modeling and simulation techniques that can be utilised to ensure at the outset of any renewable energy project that the resources available will meet supply demands. A clear, comprehensive methodology is set forth for comparing different energy systems' abilities to integrate fluctuating and intermittent renewable energy sources. Dr. Lund offers a freely available accompanying software tool, EnergyPLAN, that automates and simplifies the calculations supporting such detailed comparative analysis. The book further presents concrete design examples derived from a dozen successfully implemented renewable energy systems around the globe. It makes recommendations on the first steps of large-scale integration, focusing on the more immediate issue of conversion, rather than storage technologies. The text also undertakes the socio-political realities governing the implementation of renewable energy systems. Dr. Lund makes clear that it is the work of professionals in the renewables field to raise awareness that alternatives DO exist and that it is indeed economically and technically viable to choose renewable energy systems. To aid readers in that task, the book presents key strategies on how to overcome the inherent lethargy of entrenched institutions that seek to reinforce the status quo when confronted with objectives implying the need for radical technological change. After all, knowing there IS a choice is half the battle. Provides an introduction to the technical design of renewable energy systems Demonstrates effective methodologies for analyzing the feasibility and efficiency of large-scale renewable energy systems to help implementers avoid costly trial and error Contextualizes renewable energy design efforts by addressing the socio-political challenge of implementing the shift to renewables Free companion analysis software empowers energy professionals to crunch data for their own projects Features a dozen extensive case studies from around the globe that provide successful real-world templates for new installations

The National Security: Its Theory and Practice, 1945-1960

Product : The National Security: Its Theory and Practice, 1945-1960
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Based on a conference at West Point, this volume explores the national security policies developed by the Truman and Eisenhower administrations in response to the threat of Soviet expansionism. More pointed and analytic than any other book on the subject, it shows clearly that the makers of Cold War policy were motivated by fear. It also examines the nature of U.S. security policy and points to the growing gap between the ends and the means of global security policy--the goal of protecting Western democracy from the "Red Menace" by using a nuclear strategy with limited applications. The contributors, including David Alan Rosenberg, Lloyd C. Gardner, Martin J. Sherwin, and Gary W. Reichard explore such issues as how dependence on nuclear weapons became the central doctrine of American foreign policy, the bureaucratic and political context of U.S. security, Eisenhower's ongoing disputes with Army and Navy leaders over the security issue, the objections of Democrats to the evolving security strategy, and the limits of Cold War policy, particularly how the viewing of the Third World through a U.S.-Soviet prism impeded us from developing a truly global security policy. Written in an accessible, journalistic style, The National Security makes available a wealth of information on the Cold War period and offers insights into fears that dominate political thinking to this day.

American Skinheads: The Criminology and Control of Hate Crime

Product : American Skinheads: The Criminology and Control of Hate Crime
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : American Skinheads is the first criminological analysis of organized hate crime violence. Mark Hamm presents historical specificity for a modern theory of hate crime, then rigorously tests the theory with interview data derived from skinheads who have committed an array of violent acts against persons because of their race, religion, or sexual preference--people who are members of the classic "outgroups" of American society. Part One traces the roots of the Skinhead Nation through the Beats, Mods, Hippies, and Punks in London, and then examines the rise of the Neo-Nazi Skinheads in the United States, including a look at Neo-Nazi offshoots (Romantic Violence, The Aryan Youth Movement), recruiters (Tom Metzger), and recruitment tools (W.A.R. Magazine and Hotline, electronic mail, Race and Reason), and appearances on the Oprah Winfrey and Geraldo Rivera shows. In Part Two, Hamm discusses the accepted sociological perspectives on terrorist youth subcultures (not "gangs"), then presents findings of his own study of 36 skinheads, including social and economic characteristics, psychological profiles, the role of skinhead "girls," use of drugs and weapons, satanism, and neo-fascism. Part Three assesses the future for American Neo-Nazism and recommends steps for preventing skinhead terrorism.

Everybody Is Sitting on the Curb: How and Why America's Heroes Disappeared

Product : Everybody Is Sitting on the Curb: How and Why America's Heroes Disappeared
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The traditional American hero has disappeared and is unlikely to return. Dr. Edelstein explains in fascinating detail how and why that disappearance occurred and the consequences for the nation. Using a sociological approach, he examines the changes that have taken place within American society since World War II to bring about the demise of heroes. The United States has run out of heroes. Hero refers to a national hero, a Universal American around whom we all would rally if called. The hero is the man-rarely the woman-who inspires children and adults, and reflects the finest qualities of the American people. He is recognized as an inspiration, seen as someone engendering our best qualities. It is not that the hero represents most if not all Americans; it is that most if not all Americans are happy to have him as their representative. This is the man, the role, gone from our lives, permanently. Edelstein gives a vivid description of heroes of America's past, and offers an explanation of the national appeal of such men as Billy the Kid, Babe Ruth, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Jr. He describes how many of the fields from which Americans once drew their heroes have disappeared, and how the structures of other fields that were once sources of heroes have been altered, thereby obstructing the creation of new heroes. Not that heroism is dead. To the contrary, many Americans are often found performing heroic acts: police officers and fire fighters, federal agents and everyday people are regularly commended for committing acts above and beyond the call of duty. But these heroic actions are usually noted only on a local level. To be an American hero is to be a national hero. This is accomplished by an act of an individual that demands and receives national attention. But that doesn't seem to happen anymore. It is difficult to recall the last ticker-tape parade for an individual American hero. Parades now celebrate groups: freed hostages, winning sports teams, returning service personnel. The book concludes with a discussion on the ramifications of the disappearance of the American hero.

Tejano Religion and Ethnicity: San Antonio, 1821-1860

Product : Tejano Religion and Ethnicity: San Antonio, 1821-1860
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While the flags of Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, and the United States successively flew over San Antonio, its Tejano community (Texans of Spanish or Mexican descent) formed a distinct ethnic identity that persisted despite rapid social and cultural changes. In this pioneering study, Timothy Matovina explores the central role of Tejano Catholicism in forging this unique identity and in binding the community together. The first book-length treatment of the historical role of religion in a Mexican-origin community in the United States, this study covers three distinct periods in the emergence of Tejano religious and ethnic identity: the Mexican period (1821-1836), the Texas Republic (1836-1845), and the first decade and a half after annexation into the United States (1845-1860). Matovina's research demonstrates how theories of unilateral assimilation are inadequate for understanding the Tejano community, especially in comparison with the experiences of European immigrants to the United States. As residents of the southwestern United States continue to sort out the legacy of U.S. territorial expansion in the nineteenth century, studies like this one offer crucial understanding of the survival and resilience of Latino cultures in the United States. Tejano Religion and Ethnicity will be of interest to a broad popular and scholarly audience.

Description : Whitechapel, 1888. Grace Hammer and her children live comfortably in Bell Lane, their home a little oasis in the squalor of London's East End. They make their living picking the pockets of wealthy strangers foolish enough to venture there. But Grace's history is about to catch up with her. Out in the countryside Mr. Blunt rocks in his chair, vowing furious retribution. He has never forgotten his scarlet treasure, or the coquettish young woman who stole it from him. Fast-paced, racy, and reminiscent of Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist, Grace Hammer depicts nineteenth-century London amid corruption and a plague of poverty, peopled by orphans, harlots, and petty thieves. Sara Stockbridge introduces an unlikely heroine in Grace Hammer, a captivating young matriarch in a complicated web of intrigue, deceit, loyalties, and betrayal.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is a historical critique of Henry James in relation to nineteenth-century feminism and women's fiction. Habegger has brought to light extensive new documentation on James's tangled connections with what was thought and written about women in his time. The emphasis is equally on his life and on his fictions. This is the first book to investigate his father's bizarre lifelong struggle with free love and feminism, a struggle that played a major role in shaping James. The book also shows how seriously he distorted the truth about the cousin, Minnie Temple, whose self-assertive image inspired him; and how indebted he was to certain American women writers whom he attacked in reviews but whose plots and heroines he appropriated in his own fiction.

Now a chance encounter between what's left of the once-mighty human military and an inexplicable alien force has brought an armed expedition to the third planet of the Three Kings, Kaspar. They will join forces with the survivors of the two earlier expeditions, who have been marooned both by alien powers and by human treachery, as they at last encounter the alien minds behind the mysterious triple planetary system -- and they will face a decision that may determine the fate of the entire human race

Memory Trees--Family Trees for the Scrapbooker

Product : Memory Trees--Family Trees for the Scrapbooker
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On one level, of course, the work is an ably told personal political biography of Thomas, 6th Lord Fairfax, the Baron of Cameron (1693-1781). Fairfax was heir to his grandfather Lord Culpeper's share of the Virginia Northern Neck proprietary, an inheritance that ultimately enabled him to claim over five million acres. On another level, the book also furnishes a bird's eye view of daily life and culture, as well as political machinations, on both sides of the Atlantic. Because of the circles Fairfax walked in, his story brims with a cast of supporting characters like Robert "King" Carter, William Byrd, Governor William Gooch, and even George Washington. By the time of Fairfax's death in 1781, only months after Cornwallis' defeat at Yorktown, we come away with a complex picture of the rise and fall of a Virginia aristocrat and the social and political evolution that led the way to the American Revolution/

Life Counts: Cataloging Life on Earth

Product : Life Counts: Cataloging Life on Earth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Six billion people live on earth, but we share the planet with trillions of other life-forms, ranging from bacteria to whales. They make up life's infrastructure and are in effect the underpinnings of human existence. The internationally acclaimed Life Counts shows why we must preserve this biodiversity: if we don't, scientists predict, the earth may lose the ability to support its inhabitants within the next fifty years. Through breathtaking color illustrations and lively narration, readers learn that each animal on earth -- whose numbers are greater than our galaxy's stars -- as well as each plant and each microbe, plays a role essential to the life of the planet and, in surprising ways, human economies and health. How can we protect these living things and hence our world? The authors weigh scientist's and international governments' best ideas. Life Counts: A Worldwide Balance Sheet, winner of the 2000 Scientific Book of the Year award in Germany and recipient of a Distinctive Merit award from the Art Directors Clubs of both New York and Germany, is part of the larger Life Counts Project, designed to raise awareness across the globe of the importance of the world's biodiversity.

Marketing to Older Consumers: A Handbook of Information for Strategy Development

Product : Marketing to Older Consumers: A Handbook of Information for Strategy Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Marketers interested in designing effective strategies to tap the increasingly lucrative mature market presently must look for relevant information in several disciplines and need the background to translate it into a decision-making framework. This book systematically organizes information scattered among various fields of scientific inquiry; it interprets and presents information, making it easier for the busy decision maker to find out how older consumers behave and why. By presenting and interpreting relevant information in a marketing decision-making context, the book provides the bases for developing effective marketing strategies. Next, the author discusses both specific and general aspects of behavior that have implications for marketing strategy. Specifically, the book helps the reader understand how changes in mental processes in late life might affect the way an older person responds to marketing stimuli, and how lifestyles of mature persons can form the bases for designing effective marketing strategies. Finally, the author discusses specific aspects of older consumers' consumption and behavior in the marketplace, including mass media use, expenditure and consumption patterns, shopping habits, product/service acquisition process, as well as behaviors following purchase. At the end of each chapter, the author outlines several implications of the material presented that will be of interest to marketers, retailers, advertisers, social workers, public policy makers, and students of human behavior. The book ends by summarizing key points, drawing conclusions, and making recommendations to various groups interested in serving the mature market. The results of hundreds of studiesare reviewed and presented in such a way that they can be used by practitioners. The book begins with an examination of the older consumer market and its characteristics. Age-related changes in late life and theoretical explanations for them are discussed next to help the reader understand human behavior in general and consumer behavior in particular.

The tough-talking, twenty-pound, tomcat PI is as feisty as ever as he and his gang try to keep his favorite roommate from losing her man. PR honcho Temple Barr's romance novelist aunt Kit has wound up in a romantic plot of her own. She's snagged one of the most eligible bachelors on the Strip, one of the elder Fontana brothers, a silver-tongued reputed ex-mobster with a heart of gold. There is to be a wedding...and where there is a wedding there is usually a bachelor party.

None other than Temple's own Matt, an ex-priest. Truly a fish out of water, he soon comes upon a beautiful young woman who is quite naked and most thoroughly dead. Given the remoteness of the location with very few suspects on hand (plus the Fontanas' shady reputation) this could be a very bad thing indeed. And Louie? Well, he managed to go along for the ride and once again it's up to that big old tomcat to bail out his humans and save the day.

Cowboy Up

Product : Cowboy Up
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After reading a front-page article in The New York Times about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, Arthur Frank took a week off from work to travel around Wyoming, photographing whatever rodeos he could find. Once there, he found the culture of the American cowboy very much alive and kicking. Although their practical skills remain essential to modern ranching, it is the rodeo where their trade is praised, perpetuating the myth and mystique of America's rough and rugged icon--the cowboy. Cowboy Up, Frank's first monograph, presents photographs taken at more than fifty rodeos--including high school, college, and women's competitions in addition to professional rodeos--in Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, Nevada, Arizona, Calgary, Alberta, even Binghamton, New York. As a former football and rugby player from New York City, Frank approached the roundup with an athlete's understanding, while his profession provided distance from the cliches associated with the sport. With photographs that capture the vigorous physicality of one of the world's most erratic and dangerous sports, Cowboy Up delves deeply into the modern cowboy's life, capturing riders during the jittery wait before the roundup, and back at the ranch, engaging in work that tamed the Wild West. Frank's outsider perspective and insider access combine to provide a humanistic yet dynamic and inspiring view into a lifestyle that has become an American legend.

It provides an authentic and revealing account of the illnesses, poignant experiences and extraordinary behavior by individuals in this unique community.

There is a liberal sprinkling of humorous anecdotes about the antics of rich persons. For example, a Palm Beacher collapsed at an "exclusive" club while playing bridge, and was taken to the author's office by ambulance.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Brimming with atmosphere and edgy suspense, "The Rebel Wife "presents a young widow trying to survive in the violent world of Reconstruction Alabama, where the old gentility masks a continuing war fueled by hatred, treachery, and still-powerful secrets. Augusta Branson was born into antebellum Southern nobility during a time of wealth and prosperity, but now all that is gone, and she is left standing in the ashes of a broken civilization. When her scalawag husband dies suddenly of a mysterious blood plague, she must fend for herself and her young son. Slowly she begins to wake to the reality of her new life: her social standing is stained by her marriage; she is alone and unprotected in a community that is being destroyed by racial prejudice and violence; the fortune she thought she would inherit does not exist; and the deadly blood fever is spreading fast. Nothing is as she believed, everyone she knows is hiding something, and Augusta needs someone to trust. Somehow she must find the truth amid her own illusions about the past and the courage to cross the boundaries of hate, so strong, dangerous, and very close to home. Using the Southern Gothic tradition to explode literary archetypes like the chivalrous Southern gentleman, the good mammy, and the defenseless Southern belle, "The Rebel Wife "shatters the myths that still cling to the antebellum South and creates an unforgettable heroine for our time.

Megan has found the perfect seamstress, Zoe Yeager, to create the dresses for Kelly and the other bridesmaids.

The Collapse of Middle East Peace: The Rise & Fall of the Oslo Peace Accords

Product : The Collapse of Middle East Peace: The Rise & Fall of the Oslo Peace Accords
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this fast-paced, well-researched work, author Dennis "D.J." Deeb objectively traces the rise and fall of the Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and the Palestinians. What went wrong with peace?This work analyzes Israeli leader Ariel Sharon's statements and past record as a military and government leader with regards to the Peace Process. Deeb also discusses the corruption within the Palestinian Authority that has hindered the peace process, including the mismanagement of Palestinian Authority President Yasir Arafat. The author examines and supports what has become known as "The Mitchell Report," released in the spring 2001, in offering a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. He also considers and evaluates the recent Road Map To Peace proposal offered by President George W. Bush in the spring of 2003. Since 1993, both Israeli and Palestinian leaders have failed to implement and have violated provisions of the Oslo Accords. As the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who gave his life in the name of peace, and to whom this writing is dedicated, articulated so clearly during the signing of the Oslo Accords, "enough blood and tears."Finally, Deeb argues that the intent behind the Oslo Accords encompass the link between the end of war and the era of peace, that the Israelis and Palestinians should both return to the table for negotiations based upon the recommendations of "The Mitchell Report" and the Quartet Road Map To Peace to negotiate a final and lasting settlement rooted in the Oslo Peace Accords.

Religion and Critical Psychology: Religious Experience in the Knowledge Economy

Product : Religion and Critical Psychology: Religious Experience in the Knowledge Economy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jeremy Carrette argues that the psychology of religion is no longer sustainable without a social critique, and that as William James predicted, the project of the modernist psychology of religion has failed. Controversially he champions greater social and philosophical analysis within the field to challenge the political naivety and disciplinary illusions of the traditional approaches to psychology of religion. Carrette discusses the relevance of the social and economic factors surrounding the debates of psychology and religion, through three critical examples:
  • psychoanalysis
  • humanistic psychology
  • cognitive neuroscience.
A Critical Psychology of Religion provides a new dimension to the debates surrounding religious experience. It will be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of critical psychology, religious experience and the psychology of religion and extends an interdisciplinary challenge to the separation of psychology, sociology, politics, economics and religion.

The Poetics of Disappointment Poetics of Disappointment: Wordsworth to Ashbery Wordsworth to Ashbery

Product : The Poetics of Disappointment Poetics of Disappointment: Wordsworth to Ashbery Wordsworth to Ashbery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Poetics of Disappointment offers nothing less than a complete revision of our understanding of romantic poetry. By examining the lineage of Wordsworth, Shelley, Stevens, and Ashbery, Quinney challenges Harold Bloom's identification of major romantic poems as "crisis lyrics" and questions his idea that the disappointment these poets explore is compensated by their celebration of a heroic self. Rather, Quinney argues, the form of disappointment examined by the romantic poet often finds him bewildered and oppressed, in a state beyond the simple failure of literary ambition or romantic love. Beginning with Wordsworth's major autobiographical poems, including "Tintern Abbey" and the Intimations Ode, Quinney identifies a strain of romantic and postromantic lyric that devotes itself to capturing a disoriented sadness, a disappointment in which the self is isolated and frozen. She considers poems by Shelley, Stevens, and Ashbery, which she argues concern not specific disappointments but a psychic state of being disappointed. According to Quinney, an experience of loss has fractured and paralyzed the formerly hopeful self because that self seems in retrospect arrogant and naive -- or, as Ashbery puts it, the dream sustaining all other dreams dies. Quinney's critical prose is wonderfully fluent, conversant with theory but never relying on jargon to make her complex and sensitive argument. Drawing on the psychological insights of Freud and Klein and on the philosophy of Kierkegaard, Quinney sees in her paradigm of disappointment a sophisticated representation of self that goes beyond mere pathos or melancholia. The history of romantic and postromantic poetry, she finds, is not a history ofambitious self-assertion but a collective testimony of chagrin over the broken promises of the self.

Description : Although a diagnosis of breast cancer is certain to be frightening and life-changing, with the help of supportive family and friends, it's possible to come through triumphant on the other side. In her new memoir, I Forgot to Cry, Claudean Nia Robinson shares the history of her personal breast cancer journey in 2008. Her story is about embracing the journey-despite the heartache and challenges that developed along the way. Learning and growing from those challenges was an integral part of the healing process for her, and it also allowed her to trust and have more faith in herself and God at a much deeper level. Being surrounded by her loving family and friends, day in and day out, was also an important part of her recovery. Having come through such an experience, Claudean decided to use her passion and purpose to inspire and encourage cancer patients and survivors as they were working to achieve their wellness. Through this journey, she learned that it's not the years in your life but the life in your years that creates a brighter tomorrow.

Black Children: Social, Educational, and Parental Environments

Product : Black Children: Social, Educational, and Parental Environments
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Experiences and situations unique to black children and their parents are the focus of this comprehensive collection of current empirical research. "Afro-American children develop a duality for their existence," the editors emphasize. "To be fully functional, they must develop the skills to do well simultaneously in two different cultures, both black and non-black." This volume explores the meaning of this duality in four distinct environments: socioeconomic, educational, parental, and internal. The complex resulting picture explodes many of the myths that surround black childhood development. For example, although it is generally assumed that the harsh socioeconomic realities faced by most black children reduce their sense of self-worth, the studies in this collection show that black children have about the same distribution of self-esteem as other children, only deriving their self-esteem from different sources. The findings in this study confirm the contributors' two fundamental assumptions: first, despite the economic mobility of some blacks, most black children live in an environment that threatens their physical existence; and second, much of the child development research and literature has viewed black children negatively. Black Children, which is largely an outgrowth of meetings of the Empirical Conference of black Psychology held over the last nine years, will interest researchers and practitioners in several different fields, including black studies, family studies, education, and child psychology and development. "A valuable and welcome contribution to dispelling the kinds of myths and generalizations that abound in this area of study." --Ethnic Minority Digest "This finebook will be of particular interest to researchers, both for the issues that appear to be laid to rest and for the compelling and nagging questions that emerge: the differential influence of ecological systems on Black males and females, and what environmental characteristics may account for these differences. But this book will also be of great interest to practitioners and graduate students in education, social work, nursing, and mental health." --The Journal of Negro Education

Product : The Foster Care Crisis: Translating Research Into Policy and Practice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The inadequacy of the foster care system has long been recognized. One of the biggest obstacles to reforming the system is the relative unavailability of research data from the field, information that would shed light on key empirical trends and pressing issues. This long overdue volume provides a much-needed overview of the current state of foster care.

Chaucer Among the Gods

Product : Chaucer Among the Gods
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A description of Chaucer's adaptation of classical materials to various uses--comedy, tragedy, and allegory; theme, action, and character--this book is also an analysis of Chaucer's poetics. Chaucer's creative use of the classical past is shown as a central part of his virtuosity. The book begins with a general discussion of the medieval traditions of classical myth, showing how Chaucer made himself the first humanist of English literature--opening to England both the ancient world of Virgil, Ovid, and Lucan and also the contemporary perceptions of that world by such continental masters as Dante, Graunson, Boccaccio, and Froissart. Succeeding chapters move through the categories of Chaucer's aesthetic uses of classical materials in specific poems: brief allusions, adaptations of myth to moral allegory, references to places, and lampoons of classical divinities. Professor McCall concludes by contrasting Chaucer's "rhetorics of fragmentation and discontinuity" with those of modern writers. Today such rhetorics have a despairing or apocalyptic tone. For Chaucer they conveyed "patient acceptance of the world and one's own self."

Music Drama at the Paris Odeon, 1824-1828

Product : Music Drama at the Paris Odeon, 1824-1828
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Parisian theatrical, artistic, social, and political life comes alive in Mark Everist's impressive institutional history of the Paris Odeon, an opera house that flourished during the Bourbon Restoration. Everist traces the complete arc of the Odeon's short but highly successful life from ascent to triumph, decline, and closure. He outlines the role it played in expanding operatic repertoire and in changing the face of musical life in Paris. Everist reconstructs the political power structures that controlled the world of Parisian music drama, the internal administration of the theater, and its relationship with composers and librettists, and with the city of Paris itself. His rich depiction of French cultural life and the artistic contexts that allowed the Odeon to flourish highlights the benefit of close and innovative examination of society's institutions.
