Wonders of the Sky

Product : Wonders of the Sky
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Examining natural phenomena through the lens of ancient mythology and from the perspective of modern day science, this unique book encourages students to appreciate the magic in both myth and science. This twofold approach helps to clarify the commonality of all human experience with nature, across cultures and throughout time. Eight myths, each from a different cultural background, are accompanied by scientific explanations. By comparing the different explanations for such occurrences as comets, meteors, and eclipses, students will learn to appreciate the similarities in experiences of these phenomena, as well as the contrast between ancient and current comprehensions of the world. Grades 4-8. Helpful diagrams and engaging illustrations enhance student interest and understanding. Ideas for activities, projects, and field trips, along with lists of recommended bibliographies and Web sites, serve as springboards for further study. An invaluable resource for studies of science and ancient history, Wonders of the Sky provides a refreshing approach for students in school library, public library, and classroom settings. Grades 4-8

Handbook on Women and Aging

Product : Handbook on Women and Aging
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Statistics show that women live longer than men, and that they constitute a substantial majority of the North American population over age 50. But more research has been done on the lives of older men, and the lack of empirical data on aging women has perpetuated a number of myths and stereotypes. Twenty years ago, for example, there was a presumption that only males worked and only males retired, though women often held jobs outside the home and these jobs were sometimes their only source of income. Studies of retirement, therefore, rarely treated the experience of women. Many fallacies still remain, despite a growing body of research conducted by women investigators. This reference provides a comprehensive overview of current research on women and aging and helps correct many mistaken assumptions. Chapters are written by expert contributors and are grouped in several broad sections. The first section provides a historical and theoretical perspective on women and aging and covers topics such as sexism and ageism, representations of older women in the arts, and the attitudes of society toward aging women. The second section treats economic issues related to employment and retirement. The third section explores the psychological and physical health of women and includes related information on topics such as voluntarism and religious activity. The fourth section looks at the particular concerns of women from diverse racial and ethnic groups. It also includes a chapter on the special needs of the rural elderly. The final section studies the relationships of older women, including the impact of widowhood and the significance of friendship patterns. Each chapter cites current research and the volume closes with a selected bibliography of major studies.

The Russian Parliament: Institutional Evolution in a Transitional Regime, 1989-1999

Product : The Russian Parliament: Institutional Evolution in a Transitional Regime, 1989-1999
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the first free elections in post-Soviet Russia in 1989 to the end of the Yeltsin period in 1999, Russia's parliament was the site of great political upheavals. Conflicts between communists and reformers generated constant turmoil, and twice parliamentary institutions broke down in violence. This book offers the first full account of the inaugural decade of Russia's parliament. Thomas F. Remington, a leading scholar of Russian politics, describes in unique detail the Gorbachev-era parliament of 1989-91, the interim parliament of 1990-93, and the current Federal Assembly. Focusing particularly on the emergence of parliamentary parties and bicameralism, Remington explores how the organization of the Russian parliament changed, why some changes failed while others were accepted, and why the current parliament is more effective and viable than its predecessors. He links the story of parliamentary evolution in Russia to contemporary theories of institutional development and concludes that, notwithstanding the turbulence of Russia's first postcommunist decade, parliament has served as a stabilizing influence in Russian political life.

The Cosmopolitan Screen: German Cinema and the Global Imaginary, 1945 to the Present

Product : The Cosmopolitan Screen: German Cinema and the Global Imaginary, 1945 to the Present
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Cosmopolitan Screen" investigates the extent to which German filmmakers throughout the last sixty years have engaged with the ever more fluid trade of images, meanings, and identities in a globalizing world. The volume traces German cinema's negotiation of the global as a multilayered story in which the hopes and the fears about the prospect of a more cosmopolitan culture often go hand in hand. Featuring original work from some of the foremost scholars in German film studies from either side of the Atlantic, "The Cosmopolitan Screen" makes a persuasive case for rethinking the place of the "national" within an increasingly cosmopolitan and global economy of images and sounds. "Offering fresh paradigms, perspectives and cross-connections, this volume pushes German film scholarship far beyond its old national framework." --Katie Trumpener, Professor of Comparative Literature, English and Film Studies, Yale University "Each of the essays, like the volume as a whole, offers new insights into the circulation of German images, sounds, stories, and texts, precisely by considering them beyond the narrow confines of a 'uniquely German' national identity. Schindler and Koepnick have envisioned a new future for both German Studies and Film Studies by locating postwar German cinema within global networks of production, reception, and technological innovation and change." --Patrice Petro, Professor of English and Film Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "Schindler and Koepnick's formulation of the 'cosmopolitan gaze' as a vehicle for the constitution of a postnational German film studies is both cogent and charged with fruitful possibilities for future work in the field. The admirable mix of lucidity and critical sophistication which this array of scholars bring to their subject will make "The Cosmopolitan Screen" essential reading for students, scholars, and researchers." --Erica Carter, Professor and Chair of German Studies, University of Warwick Lutz Koepnick is Professor of German, Film and Media Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Stephan K. Schindler is Professor of German, Comparative Literature and Film Studies at Washington University in St. Louis.

Face, Harmony, and Social Structure: An Analysis of Organizational Behavior Across Cultures

Product : Face, Harmony, and Social Structure: An Analysis of Organizational Behavior Across Cultures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Face, Harmony, and Social Structure continues author P. Christopher Earley's investigations of the differences among people within organizations in different cultures. The concept of "face," as set forth by Earley, is a reflection of the individual's struggle for self-definition and understanding, of which a key component is a positioning of self relative to others is a social setting. Face is at the heart of social behavior and provides a consistent linking mechanism to understand behavior across cultures. Earley uses this concept of face as a basis for examination of cross-cultural organizational behavior from an individual's personal perspective. In this work, he develops a mid-range theory of individual behavior, self-concept, and interpersonal process in an effort to explain cultural differences in organizational settings. He sets up a cross-level model, and then attempts to provide a single coherent force--"face"--as an engine driving the entire system that can be used to integrate various social and organizational mechanisms in predicting people's behavior. This understanding of how and why people behave certain ways is a critical tool for studying the impact of individual behavior on the functioning of organizations. Earley's work represents a new theory of self-presentation and face within a cross-cultural context, integrating a cross-level approach ranging from the individual to the organization and to the societal levels of discussion. Face, Harmony, and Social Structure is a truly interdisciplinary work that brings elements of psychology, sociology, and anthropology to organizational studies. It will be illuminating reading for professionals and scholars ofmanagement and organizational behavior, as well as to academics in cross-cultural psychology and anthropology.

Safety of Tourist Submersibles

Product : Safety of Tourist Submersibles
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Over the past four years more than three-quarters of a million tourists have viewed the colorful coral-lined seas off the U.S. coasts while sitting comfortably in submersibles designed to carry over 40 passengers. Seven tourist submersibles have been operating in U.S. waters, and their safety record has been good. The primary concern, however, is that regulations and procedures will ensure that future submersibles builders and operators meet the same or better standards than are found in present operations. This volume examines the development of the tourist submarines industry throughout the world and explores the problems involved with strengthening the Coast Guard's capability of providing the oversight and expertise needed to certify and inspect tourist submersibles. It identifies the needs for system redundancy, hazards analysis, and quality control and recommends ways to enhance emergency rescue capabilities and management of passenger safety. The book also addresses concerns about small two- or three passenger submarines that do not now fall under the Coast Guard's safety purview.

Streams of Cultural Capital

Product : Streams of Cultural Capital
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This anthology examines the questions arising from the transpositions and recontextualizations of cultural objects across and between national borders: How is culture recognized, reconfigured, disseminated, appropriated, and practiced? How is cultural hegemony refused, diffused, absorbed, reproduced, and reconfigured, given the particularities of its interpolation into multiple contexts and under different pretexts by various agents? How is the materiality of culture correlated (or not) with the materiality of the economic? And how are these questions complicated by the fact that radically new technologies and modes of production have made the mass (and often illegal) (re)production and circulation of cultural objects less and less controllable and predictable and their points of origin more and more difficult to discern? Transnational movements of cultural objects challenge the notion of a simply produced, disseminated, absorbed, and practiced universal world culture that is often understood simply as an amplified single-nation model. Instead, the essays in this book focus on uneven flows of culture, multidirectional currents of cultural objects, the relative value of these objects determined by the specificity of each transaction, and, perhaps most important, the indeterminate, syncretic nature of culture as capital even as its investment evinces the desire for a particular positionality. This anthology presents both theoretical and highly empirical studies as an initial attempt to address precisely such issues regarding contemporary cultural formations and their functions. Though acknowledging the need to begin to theorize the impact of flows of cultural objects across diverse spaces, the essayists argue that these phenomena must be recognized as particular, historicized materializations of transnational movements that penetrate specifically constructed localities and demand particular scrutiny of unruly and as yet undisciplined practices. All the essays, save two, originally appeared in 1993 as a special issue of "Stanford Literature Review." For this volume, the editors have written completely new essays, an Introduction by David Palumbo-Liu and an Epilogue by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht.

Spiritual Power

Product : Spiritual Power
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Yogic Mystic, Mark Griffin, the founder of Hard Light Center of Awakening, was a student of Swami Muktananda of the Siddha Lineage, who in turn, was a disciple of Bhagawan Nityananda. Griffin, who teaches in Malibu, CA, exists in states of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and identifies meditation as the core of his teaching. He presents ancient knowledge of the various strands of Yoga dating back to the Vedas in contemporary terms, both mystical and scientific. In the summer of 2008, Mark offered a series of teachings centered around Spiritual Power -its importance in the pursuit of enlightenment, its acquisition and its use, which are presented in this book. "Power is possibility. All possibilities are related to the presence or absence of power. There's different kinds of power. There is the power of the City, which is social power, higher and lower classes, economic power, having a lot or having a little. That's one kind of power. There's also a kind of power that is just sheer force. Sometimes it's quiescent, sometimes it's wrathful and swift. We will be studying the unseen power of spirit. It is the true power. It is awesome. It is terrifying. And it is exact. When you get involved with power, everything that you bring to the situation is manifest. You come to understand who and what you truly are. This is why it's a little bit dangerous, and why you want to have as much training as possible when you come in to more and more access with power. There are deep challenges to attracting, gaining, storing and integrating power. This is what spiritual training is about, and this is the basis of our work." Mark Griffin

Focusing on modern economics, Boyes and Melvin have revised the text to integrate contemporary coverage of the "new economy" and global issues.

Purple Dots

Product : Purple Dots
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Washington, D.C., is a town full of powerful people with powerful, often conflicting agendas, and no one knows this better than Jim Lehrer, the capital's preeminent newscaster. His new novel is a provocative, only slightly tongue-in-cheek story about Joshua Bennett, the president's nominee to be the next CIA director, whose confirmation process turns into a political nightmare. Unfortunately for Bennett, someone's political agenda hinges on his confirmation being vetoed, but he's damned if he can find out whose. In need of good covert help he can trust, Bennett turns to a little-known but highly efficient cadre of ex-CIA spies living in semiretirement in nearby West Virginia. This odd team of sixty-plus-year-old spooks, boasting a combined army of exceptional if eccentric and largely illegal talent, embarks upon a wildly unorthodox Washington power struggle that is no less earnest for being conducted in absolute secrecy. Purple Dots will confirm all your worst fears about how our government really operates.

Description : January, 1951, while the country is in the grip of war in Korea, the threat of nuclear annihilation, and Senator Joe McCarthy, the residents of St. Adele, Michigan are more concerned with staying warm and shoveling snow, until a bizarre ice storm brings down a towering pine. Entangled in its roots is evidence that leads Constable John McIntire to the abandoned farmstead of a young couple who had supposedly left the community years before, part of an exodus of Finnish-Americans gone off to build a workers' Utopia in the Soviet republic of Karelia. McIntire's fears are realized when he discovers two bodies, buried sixteen years in an unused cistern. In his zeal to uncover the truth, McIntire brings the scrutiny--and the suspicion--of a Red-hunting government agent upon his neighbors and himself. It is only the beginning of his mis-calculations. Each step in investigating the deaths seems only to bring more misery to the living. Old wounds are opened, old terrors rekindled, and old wrongs exposed. McIntire himself is not immune. He struggles to solve the two-decades old murders, while a part of the past he hoped to bury forever threatens to destroy his new life.

Aunque el autor estrella de la llamada generacion perdida escribio Al romper el alba por los mismos anos en que sucedian las aventuras que nos cuenta, el manuscrito se perdio entre sus papeles hasta que, casi por casualidad, aparecio muchos anos despues de su tragica e inesperada muerte.Al romper el alba, una novela que tiene mucho de diario personal, es puro Hemingway, y en ella aflora el enamorado de lo autentico, el individualista, heroico y solidario autor aclamado y admirado en el mundo entero. Porque en realidad es el propio Hemingway quien se cuenta a si mismo en estas hermosas paginas de aventura y accion, de camaraderia, amistad, politica, amor, alcohol y caza en el incomparable marco de las cercanias del Kilimanjaro.

There is something about the deftness with which he speaks of books, family--especially his father--and the changing light and passing qualities of the natural world that is a great comfort to read. In this miniature space he's created that is both private and public, both a physical space and a mental space, I feel welcomed"--Matthew Rohrer.

Description : 1845. New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland. These two seemingly disparate events will change New York City. Forever. Timothy Wilde tends bar near the Exchange, saving every dollar and shilling in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams. But when his dreams literally incinerate in a fire devastating downtown Manhattan, he finds himself disfigured, unemployed, and homeless. His older brother obtains Timothy a job in the newly minted NYPD, but he is highly skeptical of this untested "police force." And he is less than thrilled that his new beat is the notoriously down-and-out Sixth Ward-at the border of Five Points, the world's most notorious slum. One night while returning from his rounds, heartsick and defeated, Timothy runs into a little slip of a girl--a girl not more than ten years old--dashing through the dark in her nightshift . . . covered head to toe in blood. Timothy knows he should take the girl to the House of Refuge, yet he can't bring himself to abandon her. Instead, he takes her home, where she spins wild stories, claiming that dozens of bodies are buried in the forest north of 23rd Street. Timothy isn't sure whether to believe her or not, but, as the truth unfolds, the reluctant copper star finds himself engaged in a battle for justice that nearly costs him his brother, his romantic obsession, and his own life.

Description : For years Julie Welch edited the magazine of the Long Distance Walkers Association, a large group of people who meet up most weekends to accomplish arduously long walking challenges of 30, 40, and 50 miles long.

Eventually she decided she had to try it. This is the story of the 50-mile walks she took part in to build up to the big day; the singular, admirable, sometimes eccentric, and above all tough members of the long-distance fraternity; and of the full wonder, pain, horror, exhilaration, and even hallucination (from groups of nuns to children's roadside picnics at 4 in the morning) of walking the Hundred.

Description : An unputdownable thriller from South Africa's #1-bestselling crime writer. Some would call Detective Benny Griessel a legend. Others would call him a drunk.

But when an American backpacker disappears in Cape Town, panicked politicians know who to call: Benny has just thirteen hours to save the girl, save his career, and crack open a conspiracy, which threatens the whole country. A potent, suspenseful thriller, and a brilliant portrait of life in the country that will host the 2010 World Cup.

American Policy Toward Israel: The Power and Limits of Beliefs

Product : American Policy Toward Israel: The Power and Limits of Beliefs
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book explains the institutionalization of nearly unconditional American support of Israel during the Reagan administration, and its persistence in the first Bush administration in terms of the competition of belief systems in American society and politics. Michael Thomas explains policy changes over time and provides insights into what circumstances might lead to lasting changes in policy. The volume identifies the important domestic, social, religious and political elements that have vied for primacy on policy towards Israel, and using case studies, such as the 1981 AWACS sale and the 1991 loan guarantees, argues that policy debates have been struggles to embed and enforce beliefs about Israel and about Arabs. It also establishes a framework for better understanding the influences and constraints on American policy towards Israel. An epilogue applies the lessons learned to the current Bush administration. American Policy toward Israel will be of interest to students of US foreign policy, Middle Eastern politics and international relations.

Enforcing the Peace: Learning from the Imperial Past

Product : Enforcing the Peace: Learning from the Imperial Past
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Anarchy makes it easy for terrorists to set up shop. Yet the international community has been reluctant to commit the necessary resources to peacekeeping -- with devastating results locally and around the globe. This daring new work argues that modern peacekeeping operations and military occupations bear a surprising resemblance to the imperialism practiced by liberal states a century ago. Motivated by a similar combination of self-interested and humanitarian goals, liberal democracies in both eras have wanted to maintain a presence on foreign territory in order to make themselves more secure, while sharing the benefits of their own cultures and societies. Yet both forms of intervention have inevitably been undercut by weak political will, inconsistent policy choices, and their status as a low priority on the agenda of military organizations. In more recent times, these problems are compounded by the need for multilateral cooperation -- something even NATO finds difficult to achieve but is now necessary for legitimacy. Drawing lessons from this provocative comparison, Kimberly Zisk Marten argues that the West's attempts to remake foreign societies in their own image -- even with the best of intentions -- invariably fail. Focusing on operations in Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and East Timor in the mid- to late 1990s, while touching on both post-war Afghanistan and the occupation of Iraq, "Enforcing the Peace" compares these cases to the colonial activities of Great Britain, France, and the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. The book weaves together examples from these cases, using interviews Marten conducted with military officers and other peacekeeping officials at the UN, NATO, and elsewhere. Rather than trying to control political developments abroad, Marten proposes, a more sensible goal of foreign intervention is to restore basic security to unstable regions threatened by anarchy. The colonial experience shows that military organizations police effectively if political leaders prioritize the task, and the time has come to raise the importance of peacekeeping on the international agenda.

Voluntary Regulation of NGOs and Nonprofits: An Accountability Club Framework

Product : Voluntary Regulation of NGOs and Nonprofits: An Accountability Club Framework
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How can nonprofit organizations and NGOs demonstrate to stakeholders that they are using funds appropriately and delivering on their promises? Many nonprofit stakeholders, including funders and regulators, have few opportunities to observe nonprofit internal management and policies. Such information deficits impede outside 'principals' from differentiating credible nonprofits from the less credible ones. This volume examines a key instrument employed by nonprofits to respond to these challenges: voluntary accountability clubs. These clubs are voluntary, rule-based systems created and sponsored by non governmental actors. Through these clubs, nonprofits agree to abide by certain rules regarding internal governance and send a signal of quality to key principals. Nonprofit voluntary programs are relatively new but are spreading rapidly across issue areas. This book investigates how the emergence, design and success of such initiatives vary across a range of sectors and institutional contexts in the United States, the Netherlands, Africa, and Central Europe.

Whose Backyard, Whose Risk: Fear and Fairness in Toxic and Nuclear Waste Siting

Product : Whose Backyard, Whose Risk: Fear and Fairness in Toxic and Nuclear Waste Siting
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "Whose Backyard, Whose Risk," environmental lawyer, professor, and commentator Michael B. Gerrard tackles the thorny issue of how and where to dispose of hazardous and radioactive waste. Gerrard, who has represented dozens of municipalities and community groups that have fought landfills and incinerators, as well as companies seeking permits, clearly and succinctly analyzes a problem that has generated a tremendous amount of political conflict, emotional anguish, and transaction costs. He proposes a new system of waste disposal that involves local control, state responsibility, and national allocation to deal comprehensively with multiple waste streams. Gerrard draws on the literature of law, economics, political science, and other disciplines to analyze the domestic and international origins of wastes and their disposal patterns. Based on a study of the many failures and few successes of past siting efforts, he identifies the mistaken assumptions and policy blunders that have helped doom siting efforts. Gerrard first describes the different kinds of nonradioactive and radioactive wastes and how each is generated and disposed of. He explains historical and current siting decisions and considers the effects of the current mechanisms for making those decisions (including the hidden economics and psychology of the siting process). A typology of permit rules reveals the divergence between what underlies most siting disputes and what environmental laws actually protect. Gerrard then looks at proposals for dealing with the siting dilemma and examines the successes and failures of each. He outlines a new alternative for facility siting that combines a political solution and a legal framework for implementation. A hypothetical example of how a siting decision might be made in a particular case is presented in an epilogue.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The "AAAS Atlas of Population and Environment "is an important analysis of the relationships between human population and the environment. Illustrating through text, maps, and diagrams how population factors such as rates of growth, density, movement, and resource consumption, along with the use of certain technologies, affect the world's ecosystems and natural resources both in the short and long term, the "Atlas "brings together a wealth of information from the most up-to-date sources. In view of the profound significance of these issues as we enter the new century, this accessible resource will be an invaluable tool for individuals, academics, governments, and corporations. The "Atlas "draws on research and data from a number of academic institutions and international organizations, including the United Nations, its specialist organizations and agencies; the World Resources Institute; the Center for International Earth Sciences Information Network; Oak Ridge National Laboratory; U.S. Geological Survey; and the UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre. Using sophisticated mapping and graphic techniques, it provides quantitative analyses of the important links between such factors as human population density, rates of growth, migration, resource consumption, and technologies, and the state of the global environment. While the impact of people on the environment may have seemed intuitively obvious in the past, the "Atlas "makes accessible a wealth of badly needed empirical evidence that will be invaluable for both specialists and general readers. This pathbreaking book tackles the difficult job of connecting the social and natural sciences to provide a thorough analysis of the interplay between population and the environment. Its interdisciplinary approach brings a unique comparative perspective to the discussion and makes it pertinent to a broad range of disciplines.

Exit A

Product : Exit A
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Anthony Swofford follows his international bestseller, "Jarhead," with an unforgettable first novel -- a powerful story about a youth spent on a U.S. air base in Japan and the gritty neon streets just outside it, where the Japanese underworld lurks and a rebellious young girl finds herself in great danger. Anthony Swofford took the literary world by storm with "Jarhead," his electrifying memoir of serving as a U.S. marine in the Gulf War. Celebrated for its visceral candor and profane lyricism, "Jarhead" stands today as a landmark contribution to the literature of war. Now, in his bold fiction debut, Swofford demonstrates the same audacious vision as he plumbs the legacies of war, the wish for redemption, and the danger of love. Seventeen-year-old Severin Boxx lives on Yokota, an enormous American air force base on the outskirts of Tokyo that is home to fourteen thousand U.S. soldiers and a large contingent of long-range nuclear bombers. Just outside the base lies the busy Haijima rail station. Exit A is one of the many doorways into this place of movement, anonymity, and sudden disappearance. Much of the novel's action transpires in the netherworld around Exit A, a mad neon landscape of noodle shops, strip clubs, sushi joints, pawnshops, whorehouses, sake fountains, military surplus stores, tattoo parlors, hash bars, comic book stores, pachinko parlors, fish shops, and alleys -- "the alleys that all lead somewhere, usually down." It's here, not long before the Gulf War begins, that we first meet Severin, an earnest, muscular high-school-football star and son of a base colonel. Like most of the other young American men on the air base, Severin is mad for Virginia Kindwall, the base general's daughter, who is a hafu -- half American and half Japanese. Beautiful, smart, and utterly defiant of a father who wields godlike military power, Virginia has become a petty criminal in the Japanese underground. Severin is soon caught up in Virginia's world. But theirs is not a typical high school romance; they fall into trouble way over their heads and are quickly subjected to the enormous, unforgiving tensions between America and Japan -- a relationship still informed by the long shadows of World War II and America's use of the atomic bomb. Years later, Severin and Virginia remain lost to each other -- until an emotionally frayed, thirtysomething Severin embarks on a quest to find Virginia and, in so doing, the part of himself taken from him when his boyhood abruptly ended. Like "Jarhead" before it, Anthony Swofford's "Exit A" is darkly irreverent, frankly erotic, and more than a little wicked, a tale told in a brooding, pained voice filled with the simple human fury of being alive. It is, in sum, a first novel in full. Building inexorably toward a climax that is at once suspenseful and emotionally overwhelming, Anthony Swofford's fiction debut is a triumph.
