Product : The Making of an American
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the warmth of an extended family to the streets of New York;from "patsy" to street-smarts; from being a devout religious observer (with an atheist father) to the depths of despair, when my religion failed me; from the receiving end of the abuse of power from a politically appointed colonel, while serving overseas in World War II, to fair play from an old-time sergeant; from anti-Semitism while seeking employment in the Federal Government after the war to social justice; from the struggle to join the mainstream of American life to ultimate success as a practicing professional with conscience intact, all the while seeking for the way to make sense of, and a meaning to, life; this is the story of the son of immigrant parents, or- "the making of an American."

H.G. Wells: Traversing Time

Product : H.G. Wells: Traversing Time
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The English writer Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) is one of the giants of science fiction. His early novels, The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, invented a number of themes now classic in science fiction. But he also wrote mainstream novels, journalism, political tracts, a memoir, and purely didactic fiction designed to support his various causes. In this comprehensive new critical study, W. Warren Wagar traces Wells's obsession with the unfolding of public time--in short, with the history and future of humankind--to show the persisting and provocative relevance of Wells's work. Most interest in Wells today centers on his science fiction, but Wagar contends that one cannot fully understand or enjoy the science fiction without exploring the mind that produced it. This accessible overview takes the reader through dozens of Wells's most important works, following the twists and turns of his thought as he struggled with the great issues of human provenance and destiny.

Blasphemy: Impious Speech in the West from the Seventeenth to the Nineteenth Century

Product : Blasphemy: Impious Speech in the West from the Seventeenth to the Nineteenth Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Our world is steeped in attitudes and concepts derived from a sacred worldview, and this book helps us understand why. Alain Cabantous shows that blasphemy is a battlefield where religious dogma and secular rule clash, with their respective agents (the priest and the judge) competing for the proper reaction to a variety of curses. The book takes us on a journey through the Christian West with braggarts, craftsmen, soldiers, sailors, and their coarse, forbidden exchanges. More than simply an exhaustive inventory of the uses of and bans on blasphemy, the book is a lively analysis of the relationship between the blasphemer, the machinery of language, and that of repression. Beginning with a review of acts and crimes of blasphemy in biblical times, including the second commandment's injunction against taking God's name in vain, Cabantous reviews the close relationship between religious authority and royal authority in the sixteenth century, when the king ruled by divine right and attacks against God were implicit attacks on the nature of kingship. Punishing blasphemy was a way for the king to rule as God's representative and an occasion for the church to take control of language. The narrative continues with an exploration of acts of blasphemy, as well as related acts of desecration and profanation, which were regarded as civil and religious offenses up to the French Revolution of 1789 and afterward. The book then explores blasphemy through the mid-nineteenth century, when Catholic opponents of the French Revolution claimed that revolution itself was a blasphemy and a profanation.

Behavioral Decision Theory: A New Approach

Product : Behavioral Decision Theory: A New Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book discusses the well-known fallacies of behavioral decision theory. It shows that while an investigator is studying a fallacy, he or she may introduce without realizing it, one of the simple biases that are found in quantifying judgments. The work covers such fallacies as the apparent overconfidence that people show when they judge the probability of correctness of their answers to two-choice general knowledge questions using a one-sided rating scale; the apparent overconfidence in setting uncertainty bounds on unknown quantities when using the fractile method; the interactions between hindsight and memory; the belief that small samples are as reliable and as representative as are large samples; the conjunction fallacy for Linda and Bill; the causal conjunction fallacy; the regression fallacy in prediction; the neglect of the base rate in the Cab problem, in predicting professions, and in the Medical Diagnosis problem; the availability and simulation fallacies; the anchoring and adjustment biases; Prospect theory; and bias by frames. The aim of this book is to help readers to learn about the fallacies and to avoid them.

Zouping in Transition: The Process of Reform in Rural North China

Product : Zouping in Transition: The Process of Reform in Rural North China
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Zouping offers important general lessons for the study of China's rural transformation. The authors in this volume, all participants in a unique field research project undertaken from 1988 to 1992, address questions that are far from simple and about which there is some controversy. The questions are grouped around two issues. The first is the role of local governments as economic actors. What is this role, how have they played it, and how can we explain their behavior? Have they dominated rural economies through public ownership of industry and local planning, or has the role of local governments diminished with the rise of market transactions and private ownership? The second issue is market reform and inequality. Have rural cadres enjoyed income advantages in the new market environment? Has the provision of such collective services as education and health care declined, leading to new forms of inequality? The chapters on the role of local government all point to a single conclusion: one cannot explain the rapid development of Zouping without reference to the role of local governments and of local government officials as economic actors. Scholarly writings about the "transitional economies" have often ignored or distorted this aspect of China's reform experience. On the second issue, changes in inequality owing to market reform, the authors present mixed findings but contribute rich new data to the research on this issue.

Masculinities in Organizations

Product : Masculinities in Organizations
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Most popular discussions of men and gender treat masculinity as an entirely psychological issue. This book edited by Cliff Cheng, part of a new wave of research on masculinity, shows the issues are much wider. Gender is an aspect of organizational life, workplace culture, and business politics. Vivid and sometimes surprising case studies--including the space shuttle disaster, an all-male military collage, and the ethnically mixed management of a Japanese-American firm--show different forms of masculinity in the making and under challenge. Conceptual and empirical chapters in the book both enrich our understanding of hegemonic masculinity, and raise intriguing questions about non-hegemonic masculinities. The issues explored in the book are important for organizational studies, for the social science of gender, and for all concerned with the future patterns of power in our business-dominated world." --R.W. Connell, Univeristy of Sydney, Australia, and author of Masculinities "Cliff Cheng's newest contribution to the study of men and masculinities as a gender within and outside other group memberships is a welcome addition to embedded intergroup relations theory." --Clayton P. Alderfer, "This volume fills a gap in our knowledge by providing empirical studies of the role masculine genders play in various, diverse organizations. Studies of the Challenger disaster and American managers in Japanese-owned firms were especially fascinating because they show so clearly the multiple masculinities that arise in different occupations and racial groups. Studies of the Citadel and law firms provide interesting insights into how hegemonic masculinities operate. Still, other chapters present newtheorizing and quantitative results. Overall, an impressive collection of work that offers a wealth of ideas for future research and informed teaching and practice." --Janice M. Beyer, Graduate School of Business, The University of Texas, Austin The latest volume in the Research on Men and Masculinities series, Masculinities in Organizations provides an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural study of masculinities in organizational settings. Editor Cliff Cheng sheds light on misconceptions that have plagued the study of organizations and discusses workplace roles and the ways they relate to and affect masculinity. This book makes an effective case both that sex and gender are not synonymous and that masculinity is not homogeneous. The book will add to a growing literature that calls for pro-social change in groups and organizations to overcome the problem of hegemonic masculinity. Timely and provocative, Masculinities in Organizations will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in organizational behavior, organizational studies, gender roles, and men's studies.

Big City Politics in Transition

Product : Big City Politics in Transition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Big City Politics in Transition is a good reference volume packed with much important and up-to-date information." --Environment and Planning "A timely book that revisits the field so well described by Edward Banfield (Big City Politics, 1965) as of the early 1960s but which has changed greatly since then. . . . Each profile shows a high level of research, and the notes provide a thorough bibliography of the literature. A tremendously useful book for readers at all levels." --Choice "This book was inspired by Edward Banfield's Big City Politics of 1965. In Big City Politics in Transition] the introduction amply justifies the need for a new volume. . . . This multiauthored volume examines thirteen cities: Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Saint Louis, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. Each chapter traces the economic, social, and political changes since 1965 and current political problems. . . . It is impossible to do justice to all thirteen studies in a short review but this book represents a very useful summation of the current state of the major US cities." --Environment and Planning C In 1965 Big City Politics ambitiously attempted to describe the workings of America's big cities, using nine large U.S. cities as examples. By the time it was published, urban racial conflict, declining economic power, and growing concentrations of low-income populations had changed the face of the urban political scene. Big City Politics in Transition examines how government and administration in America's largest cities have changed between 1960 and 1990. The contributors to this intriguing volume trace demographic and economic change overthis vital and, at times, turbulent period, explaining what those changes mean for politics, policies, and the general quality of life. The chapters address the demographics and economic base of the cities under consideration, the role and structure of city government, including interaction with state houses, suburbs and Washington, DC, and the roles played by interest groups and political influentials. The cities profiled include: Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. Underlying these concerns is an examination of the political character of the city, (the composition and cohesion of the coalitions, groups, organizations, and individual actors that shape major decisions). A balanced and insightful look at urban politics in the late 20th century, this volume will enlighten academics and professionals in urban studies, policy studies, and political science.

The Warrior's Daughter

Product : The Warrior's Daughter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : I never did leap the coals of the Beltane fire and complete my journey to womanhood. Dawn found me standing on the strand beside my mother. We watched as my father, waist-deep in the ocean, raged and wept and thrashed his sword wildly against the tireless waves. It was a sight to make the sternest heart break and the pain and pity of it a thing I still cannot bear to recall. Luaine is daughter to the greatest of Irish warriors, the legendary Cuchulainn. Although known throughout Ireland as the most fearsome of killers, to Luaine he is a loving playful father who amuses her with his exciting tales and marvelous feats. When the unthinkable happens--Cuchulainn returns from war injured nearly to the death--it is the first intimation of the hero's downfall, and Luaine's first painful step toward an adult life unlike anything she has imagined. As she faces loss, betrayal, suffering and fear, Luaine must find a strength that comes neither from the sword nor from her proud parentage, but from her own courageous spirit. Holly Bennett is the author of The Bonemender, The Bonemender's Oath, and the forthcoming The Gray Veil, all published by Orca. In her "real" life she works as editor-in-chief of Today's Parent Special Editions. Born in Montreal, Quebec, she lives in Peterborough, Ontario, with a houseful of musicians (three sons and husband John) and a nice quiet dog.

Description : Readers will feel the bite of icy waters as Jon Bowermaster careens down the most dangerous sections of the Yangtze River-so treacherous the Chinese government has closed it to boaters-and descends for the first time Chile's Futaleufu, one of the most beautiful--and dangerous--rivers in the world. Bowermaster stands witness to some of the greatest expeditions of our time, forming lasting friendships with, among others, polar man Will Steger, first to the North Pole and across Antarctica by dogsled, and Peter Beard, an outsized character still living on the edge of the wild. He sits on the deck with French sailors as they prepare to race around the world single-handedly, each of them knowing few will finish, and some will not come back. He accompanies a pair of expatriate "shagbags" as they head out on a last safari, and is conned on the streets of Baja by a tall-tale-telling fishing guide. Bowermaster's worldwide travels--set against a backdrop of politics, environmental laws, and governments gone awry--have a common goal: to inform himself, and readers, as best he can about how the world really works. This book is an important addition to the adventurer's library.

Urban Governance, Voice and Poverty in the Developing World

Product : Urban Governance, Voice and Poverty in the Developing World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : * Authored by an international team of researchers* Marshals a wealth of evidence to expose the little-examined links between urban governance and poverty * Provides policy guidance for cities, governments, practitioners, and the poor for alleviating the growing problem of urban poverty In this book an international team of researchers examines the hitherto little-examined relationship between urban governance and growing poverty. The core of the book is the result of three years of research in ten cities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America including interviews with key actors both within and outside city governments, discussions with poverty groups, community organizations, and NGOs, as well as analyses of data on poverty, services, and finance. Ultimately the evidence demonstrates that in many countries the global trend towards decentralization and democratization offers exciting new opportunities for the poor to have an influence on the decisions that affect them. It proves that the extent of that influence depends on the nature of those democratic arrangements and decisionmaking processes at the local level. The book presents insights, conclusions, and practical examples that are of relevance for all cities, and it outlines policy implications for national and local governments, NGOs, and donor agencies.

Real Resumix & Other Resumes for Federal Government Jobs

Product : Real Resumix & Other Resumes for Federal Government Jobs
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is designed to help people who seek their first federal government job as well as federal employees who want to advance in the system. The process of getting a government job often involves preparing complex applications or specialized resumes which include the "resumix." One complication of the federal hiring process is that the resume used for federal employment is not the same as the resume used to obtain civilian employment. This book shows examples of effective federal resumes and "resumix" that have worked for real people. The book doesn't simply "tell how" to write the resumix or federal resume; it actually "shows how" to write effective federal resumes in sample after sample related to multiple fields. This book will do a great deal to make the federal hiring process understandable as it illuminates one of the most complex features of getting a government job: writing the federal resume or resumix. In addition to the federal resume, application for federal employment can be made by preparing the Optional Form 612 (OF 612). This book also contains examples of the 612 application.

Songs for the New Depression

Product : Songs for the New Depression
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Kergan Edwards-Stout infuses reality and hopefulness into a bittersweet story about compassion and personal growth. A distinctively entertaining novel written with moxie and bolstered by pitch-perfect perspectives." Kirkus Discoveries Gabriel Travers knows he's dying; he just can't prove it. Despite his doctor's proclamations to the contrary and rumors of a promising new HIV drug cocktail, all it takes is one glance into the mirror to tell Gabe everything he needs to know. His ass, once the talk of West Hollywood, now looks suspiciously like a Shar-Pei, prompting even more talk around town. Back in his 20's, life had been so easy. Caught up in the 1980's world of LOVE MONEY SEX , Gabe thought he'd have it all. But every effort to better himself ended in self-sabotage, and every attempt at love left him with only a fake number, scrawled on a realtor's notepad. The only happiness he could remember was in high school, where he'd met Keith, his first love. Only Keith had recognized the goodness within, and knew of the brutal attack Gabe had faced, the effects of which still rule his life today. Now almost 40, and with the clock ticking, Gabe begins to finally peel back the layers and tackle his demons - with a little help from the music of the Divine Miss M and his mom's new wife, a country music-loving priest. "Kergan Edwards-Stout has crafted a work of fiction reminiscent of some classic tales in Songs for the New Depression. Even better, Edwards-Stout's debut boasts the kind of dark humor that made Augusten Burroughs a household name." Advocate.com "Kergan Edwards-Stout's Songs for the New Depression is a bold reminder that life, especially in its most difficult moments, is worth living. His characters are real and poignant, his writing is magical, and his message is timeless. Life is at its most precious when we are faced with our own mortality. It is an important book." Charles Perez, journalist, author of Confessions of a Gay Anchorman, and founder of the No Shame Project "Songs for the New Depression carries you away on waves of humor and sadness as we follow the protagonist as he deals with his search for love, acceptance and his battle with AIDS. Far from being maudlin, it is extremely sensitive and ennobling. A fine work that will leave you wanting more." Robert Michael Morris, star of TV's The Comeback and author of An American Scrapbook

The Two Cities: Medieval Europe 1050?1320

Product : The Two Cities: Medieval Europe 1050?1320
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : First published to wide critical acclaim in 1992, The Two Cities has become an essential text for students of medieval history. For the second edition, the author has thoroughly revised each chapter, bringing the material up to date and taking the historiography of the past decade into account. The Two Cities covers a colourful period from the schism between the eastern and western churches to the death of Dante. It encompasses key topics such as:
  • the Crusades
  • the expansionist force of the Normans
  • major developments in the way kings, emperors and Popes exercised their powers
  • a great flourishing of art and architecture
  • the foundation of the very first universities.
Running through it all is the defining characteristic of the high Middle Ages: the delicate relationship between the spiritual and secular worlds, the two 'cities' of the title. This survey provides all the facts and background information that students need, and is defined into straightforward thematic chapters. It makes extensive use of primary sources, and makes new trends in research accessible to students. Its fresh approach gives students the most rounded, lively and integrated view of the high Middle Ages available.

The Book of Proverbs

Product : The Book of Proverbs
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Dr Whybray's volume, like the others in the series, contains the text in the New English Bible translation, with introductory material preceding, and a commentary directly following, each section of text. Dr Whybray describes the ancient Near Eastern tradition of producing collections of 'wisdom': instructions in the form of aphorisms and proverbs, for the education of the young for a happy and successful career. He indicates the dependence of Proverbs on this tradition, but also points out how the Israelite authors modified it. The book contains three kinds of material: sections whose form and character are hardly distinguishable from the instructions of Egypt and Mesopotamia; others where, in spite of a more specifically Israelite dress, the aim remains the achievement of a successful life; and finally passages in which the main purpose has now become the pursuit of a wisdom conforming entirely with the 'fear of the Lord'.

The Earthscan Reader in Poverty and Biodiversity Conservation

Product : The Earthscan Reader in Poverty and Biodiversity Conservation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The role and value of biodiversity conservation in supporting the livelihoods of poor people has been widely debated during the last two or three decades. Within the last few years, however, the debate on the link between nature conservation and poverty reduction appears to have become more vociferous, and, at times, acrimonious. The contemporary debate on conservation and poverty appears to revolve around four key themes: 'The apparent lack of attention to biodiversity concerns in international development policy 'The apparently increasing protectionism of conservation policy 'The roles and responsibilities of conservation NGOs towards local communities'The links between climate change, biodiversity and poverty reduction, and in particular the implication of discussions around reduced emissions from deforestation (REDD). This book is thus timely and important because understanding the origins and evolution of this debate is critical to understanding and resolving the current claims and counter-claims that are being made, and moving beyond polarizing debate to constructive solutions. The recent focus of the climate change agenda on reduced emissions from deforestation makes this search for solutions particularly important because of the implications for conservation and, subsequently, for its impacts on poor and vulnerable people.The "Reader" is an edited compilation of the most important previously-published material, which provides a guide to and commentary on the key literature on current debates on poverty-conservation linkages. The book will help readers, including both students and professionals, to locate current debates within their wider contexts.

Description : On a December day in 1957, schoolteacher Louise Copeland and her six-year-old daughter, Lyra, come home to discover that Louise's gentle war-hero husband has suddenly become psychotic and has slashed his wrist with a razor blade. From that moment on, everything Louise has believed in unravels. In their inner-city Southern neighborhood, situated between a cemetery and a madhouse, a place of leafy oak trees and ghosts, three other people become involved in Louise's crisis: Rosa, the scandalous divorcee who entertains men for a living; Uta, the mysterious elderly lady who casts spells; and Max, the clairvoyant gravedigger. In 2004, as Louise is dying, her daughter returns home, and she and her mother confront how the family was torn asunder in 1957. Louise finally reveals the long-held secret that haunted the family for the next fifty years. This poignant novel is a gripping drama of madness and prejudice in which a mother leaves her daughter, ultimately, with hope.

The Bag of Broken Glass

Product : The Bag of Broken Glass
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Yerra Sugarman's first book Forms of Gone marked the appearance of a mature poet with an invaluable world-view, that of a daughter of Shoah survivors settled in Canada interrogating and recreating a vanishing palimpsest of experience. The Bag of Broken Glass, with a mastery of form and of the multi-vocal sequence, enlarges on the poet's project: investigates the permutations of the erotic in the quotidian and the ways the past permeates the present; examines the natural world in its intersections with memory; examines Scripture with a contemporary exile's eye on history, psychology and language. This new book establishes Yerra Sugarman as an important poet on the North American literary landscape, as a "world" poet whose concerns have no borders."--Marilyn Hacker "Standing at prayer, mourning and grieving, preoccupied with suffering, somehow the poetry of Yerra Sugarman breaks through, functions something like a solar system--around a sun that is Beauty and constant, there moves a planet Clarity of Utterance, there are the planets History and Holocaust, and the twin planets Passion and Eye whose gravitational pulls keep it all in motion, then there is Music (a voice distantly related to a cello), and the planet Language (that like our Venus is the brightest of all), finally there is Decency, which is made of iron and has its own star. This extraordinary display in the literary heavens appears in every poem."--Stanley Moss The prize-winning selection, a "day" from Yerra Sugarman's "Journal: Rai'ut Coma Ward, Tel Aviv-Yaffo, July 2003," begins with the question, "What to call it..." and ends with a related, apposite question: "But what happens when language can no longer bear us?" The poem articulates grief and loss by indirection, accumulating sharply etched details of the quotidian to evoke absence and silence; to evoke, in other words, the unsayable. The darkness of the confrontation and its final cri de coeur stand in paradoxical balance with a poetic language almost overcharged in its sensuous appeal.... The free-verse lines are deployed with great skill, and the lyric-elegiac tone eloquently encounters the dust storm (sand storm?) of history."--Michael Palmer, Awarding Yerra Sugarman PSA's 2007 Cecil Hemley Memorial Award

Zhang Yimou: Interviews

Product : Zhang Yimou: Interviews
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ranging from 1988 to 1999, this book includes interviews with the acclaimed Chinese director of such films as "Red Sorghum" (1987), "Shanghai Triad" (1995), and "Not One Less" (1999) and the trilogy "Ju Dou" (1990), "Raise the Red Lantern" (1992), and "The Story of Qiu Ju "(1992). Several of these interviews appear in English for the first time. Some come from Chinese-language periodicals, and a few have never been published until now. In these conversations with such notable critics as Michel Ciment, Robert Sklar, and Tam Kwok-Kan, Zhang Yimou discusses all his films and speaks candidly about his work both as a cinematographer and an actor. Certain topics-the symbolism in his use of color, the use of women protagonists in most of his films, his working relationships with the Taiwanese filmmakers Hou Hsiao-Hsien and Edward Yang-emerge many times in the interviews. He shows strong interests in literature and film adaptations of texts. Zhang speaks too of his work with the actress Gong Li and of her roles in six of his films, most of which depict the role of a woman living in feudal patriarchal society. Zhang was one of the 1982 Beijing Film Academy graduates-the so-called Fifth Generation of filmmakers, who were the first generation of Chinese directors trained after the Cultural Revolution. He discusses the Academy's impact on him and his peers. He often mentions that many of his fellow graduates now work in television because the state did not deem their films successful. "If a film does not recoup its costs in China," he told the New York Times in 2000, "you're not going to make another one. And you're not going to make a film without attracting investors." Using his art as a means of exploring oppression and its devastation of human relationships, Zhang talks openly about the effects of mainland China's codes of censorship on his work. He often bemoans his lack of access to films, especially international films, during his youth. As he discusses his filmmaking style and compares it to the current state of Chinese filmmaking, he is revealed as open and modest, yet deeply passionate about his art. Readers meeting him through these interviews will see him to be complex, serious, and as quietly unassuming as his movies. Frances Gateward is an assistant professor of film studies and in the center for African and Afro-American Studies at the University of Michigan.

Encyclopedia of Women and Gender, Two-Volume Set: Sex Similarities and Differences and the Impact of Society on Gender 1-2

Product : Encyclopedia of Women and Gender, Two-Volume Set: Sex Similarities and Differences and the Impact of Society on Gender 1-2
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The study of gender differences began in earnest in the 1970s and has since increased dramatically to infiltrate virtually all fields of study in the social and behavioral sciences. Along the way, it was discovered that while women very often think and behave differently than do men, industrialized societies cater to masculine perspectives. The "Psychology of Women" emerged as a field of study focusing on just those areas in which women most often butted against assumed roles. And similarly, in the 1990s, the "Psychology of Men" emerged to focus on the same issues for men. The Encyclopedia of Gender covers all three areas under one cover, discussing psychological differences in personality, cognition, and behavior, as well as biologically based differences and how those differences impact behavior. Coverage includes studies of these differences in applied settings such as education, business, the home, in politics, sports competition, etc. Key Features * Over 100 In-depth chapters by leading scholars in the psychology of women and gender * Addresses critical questions of similarities and differences in gendering across diverse groups, challenging myths about gender polarization and the "Venus/Mars" distinction * Broad coverage of topics from theory and method to development, personality, violence, sexuality, close relationships, work, health, and social policy * Sensitive attention to multicultural and cross-cultural research * Clearly written, readable, comprehensive, with helpful guides (outline, glossary, reference list) * Raises difficult questions related to power, inequality, ethics, and social justice * Challenges the reader to revise established "truths" and to seek further information * Maintains a feminist and woman-centered focus

Scientific Evidence for Musculoskeletal, Bariatric, and Sports Nutrition

Product : Scientific Evidence for Musculoskeletal, Bariatric, and Sports Nutrition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nutrition has long been the missing ingredient in the treatment of the various musculoskeletal conditions seen daily by the health professionals. The often-stated reason for giving nutrition short shrift is the lack of evidence. Responding to this need, Scientific Evidence for Musculoskeletal, Bariatric, and Sports Nutrition provides clinicians with an evidence-based integration of nutrition into medical treatment. Gathering biochemical information and presenting it in clinical terms, the book explores the link between fat, muscle, and bone tissue, and how nutrition can be used to enhance their metabolism and performance. Written by doctors for doctors, the book offers a biological rationale supported by animal studies, clinical trials, ongoing research initiatives, and epidemiological findings. It provides discussions of body composition, nutrigenomics, and fetal origins of adult-onset musculoskeletal conditions. The contributors identify macronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and even water for optimal muscle, bone and fat metabolism. They also delineate how new technology can be incorporated into practice and highlight foods and nutraceuticals with effects similar to medications. The international, multidisciplinary panel of contributors, many of them practicing clinicians, attests to the multifaceted nature of treating musculoskeletal conditions. The book includes pearls from clinicians renowned for their innovative work in fibromyalgia, sports medicine, sarcopenia, osteoporosis, obesity, and environmental medicine. Additional clinical chapters summarize the evidence for nutritional interventions for muscle hypertrophy from steroid use, anorexia, metabolic syndrome, strained muscles, osteoarthritis, gout, fractures, perioperative muscle loss, bariatric surgery, and high body stores of xenobiotics. Approximately 100 charts, tables, and protocols allow easy access and cross-referencing. The text presents approaches to clinical management that foster more predictive, cost-and outcome-effective, integrative, and comprehensive clinical care.

Why People Don't Trust Government: ,

Product : Why People Don't Trust Government: ,
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Confidence in American government has been declining for three decades. Three-quarters of Americans said they trusted the Federal government to do the right thing in 1964. Today, only a quarter do. Why the decline? Is this mistrust a healthy reflection of America's long-lasting skepticism of a strong state? Is mistrust a problem for the future of governance? Bringing together essays by leading Harvard scholars, this book explores the roots of mistrust. It first examines government's current scope, its actual performance, and citizens' perceptions of its performance. It then assesses many possible explanations that have been offered for the decline of trust, including the end of the Cold War, elevated expectations following World War II, a weakened economy, the effects of globalization, resentment over political scandals, and incompetence of bureaucrats. The book clarifies thinking about the sources of public disaffection. Mistrust, the contributors find, is largely unrelated to national economic conditions, to challenges of a global economy, to the Cold War, or to bumbling bureaucrats and venal politicians. Rather, they show that the most likely culprits are all around us--an interacting blend of cultural and political conflicts stirred by an increasingly corrosive news media.

The Emergence of Britain's Global Naval Supremacy: The War of 1739-1748

Product : The Emergence of Britain's Global Naval Supremacy: The War of 1739-1748
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although it was the Seven Years War (1756-63) that confirmed Britain as the leading maritime power, this book argues and demonstrates that it was the thinking through of military strategy, planning and operations in the war of 1739-48 that laid the foundations for Britain's subsequent supreme position. The book provides a detailed, modern operational and analytical history, integrating a history of the campaigns in Flanders and Germany with the naval and colonial war, where there was much action in the Caribbean, North America, the Mediterranean and at sea in the eastern Atlantic. It shows how British military capability and planning changed over the period, the impact this had on British political attitudes, and how lessons were learned that brought greater success in future conflicts. Richard Harding is Professor of Organisational History at the University of Westminster. He is Chairman of the Society for Nautical Research and a councillor of the Naval Records Society, and was Editor of The Mariner's Mirror 2001-2005. He is the author or editor of seven books, including Amphibious Warfare in the Eighteenth Century (Boydell, 1991).

Dynamic Fleet Management: Concepts, Systems, Algorithms & Case Studies

Product : Dynamic Fleet Management: Concepts, Systems, Algorithms & Case Studies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : DYNAMIC FLEET MANAGEMENT will focus on real time management of a distribution system. This means that when a dynamic event occurs within the distribution chain, action must be taken in "real-time." The book will integrate the latest results in system design, algorithm development and system implementation, to capture the state-of-the art research and application trends. While much of the research in this area of transportation problems have almost exclusively concentrated on carrying out static plans on optional distribution conditions, this book will examine those problems when some dynamic or unplanned even occurs within the transport or network system. It will focus specifically on these cases and integrate the latest results in systems, routing algorithms and case studies where information (a dynamic event) is revealed to the decision maker in a real-time manner. The book's purpose is to investigate and analyze the emerging field of Dynamic Fleet Management from several perspectives. The book includes chapters that present the systemic background of important dynamic fleet management areas such as goods dispatching, couriers, rescue and repair services, taxi cab services, etc. Algorithmic approaches are outlined that are able to process real time information and produce acceptable-quality solutions in modest computing times. In addition, the book includes real-life case studies that describe the solution to actual distribution problems by combining systemic and algorithmic approaches.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Interest in Theophrastus, Aristotle's pupil and successor as head of the Peripatetic School, has increased considerably since the 1992 publication of "Theophastus of Eresus: Sources for his Life, Works, Thought and Life." Now comes an extensive commentary on the ethical sources. It considers Theophrastus in relation to Aristotle, to other members of the Peripatos and to the Stoic philosophers who became Theophrastus' rivals. Special attention is given to Theophrastus' insistence that virtue by itself cannot guarantee happiness. Also to the difference between manners and moral virtue, the relation between innate character and fate, the value of marriage and how animal behavior relates to that of human beings.

Scenes of Sympathy: Identity and Representation in Victorian Fiction

Product : Scenes of Sympathy: Identity and Representation in Victorian Fiction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Scenes of Sympathy, Audrey Jaffe argues that representations of sympathy in Victorian fiction both reveal and unsettle Victorian ideologies of identity. Situating these representations within the context of Victorian visual culture, and offering new readings of key works by Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Ellen Wood, George Eliot, Oscar Wilde, and Arthur Conan Doyle, Jaffe shows how mid-Victorian spectacles of social difference construct the middle-class self, and how late-Victorian narratives of feeling pave the way for the sympathetic affinities of contemporary identity politics. Perceptive and elegantly written, Scenes of Sympathy is the first detailed examination of the place of sympathy in Victorian fiction and ideology. It will redirect the current critical conversation about sympathy and refocus discussions of late-Victorian fictions of identity.

The Celestina: A Fifteenth-Century Spanish Novel in Dialogue

Product : The Celestina: A Fifteenth-Century Spanish Novel in Dialogue
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Celestina" is the first European novel, a fifteenth-century Spanish masterpiece remarkable for its originality, depth, handling of dialogue, and drawing of character. The plot is simple. A young nobleman enlists the services of Celestina, an old bawd, to help him seduce a girl; the seduction ends in tragedy. It is not, however, the love story that is important. It is Celestina who dominates the scene. She is a frank and lusty old pagan of the Renaissance, brimming over with classical lore and a salty wisdom gained in the course of a vigorous and sinful life, which she still loves with a wonderful heartiness. Her greatest regret, indeed, is that in her remote youth she neglected some few opportunities to enjoy herself. In her old age her pleasure is in purveying pleasures to others. She is one of the great creations of all literature and has a secure place beside her two compatriots, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. This Spanish classic, the greatest of the forebears of Cervantes, was originally published anonymously, in 1499; later editions bear the name of Fernando de Rojas as author, in acrostics. Readers familiar with Lesley Byrd Simpson's translations of "Two Novels of Mexico" by Manuel Azuela, "The Poem of the Cid, " and "Little Sermons on Sin: The Archpriest of Talavera" will not be surprised that he has preserved the vigor and colloquial flavor of the original.

Philosophy, Social Theory, and the Rule of Law

Product : Philosophy, Social Theory, and the Rule of Law
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In pluralistic societies that lack common ethical, social, and political values, legal interpretation is constantly under siege. Just interpretations--that is, interpretations that reflect a shared vision of justice--may become just interpretations in the sense of mere interpretations, rooted in the orientations and interests of different groups. Confronting this crisis in legal interpretation, "Just Interpretations" offers a critical appraisal of the principal theoretical trends in contemporary American and European jurisprudence and proposes an alternative approach. Michel Rosenfeld's critique focuses on neoformalism, pragmatism, discourse theory, and legal autopoiesis, and includes discussions of such authors as Habermas, Rorty, Posner, Luhmann, Dworkin, Fish, and Weinrib. To overcome the drawbacks of these theories, Rosenfeld elaborates a theory of "comprehensive pluralism," based on a substantive vision of pluralism. This approach, building on the insights of deconstruction, turns the fact of pluralism into a guiding normative imperative. "Just Interpretations" will attract the attention of constitutional scholars, political scientists, and critical theorists, and will also address an interdisciplinary audience interested in texts, interpretations, and postmodern concerns with justice.

The Beautiful Catastrophe of Wind

Product : The Beautiful Catastrophe of Wind
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : No one ever chooses to stop at Black Rock Mesa, it's too desolate. The brutal wind, ever-present and temperamental, tests the willpower of the most stalwart residents. So, when a mysterious woman impulsively disembarks from a bus and gets blown into the town's general store, her presence causes quite a stir. She says little, but her Asian features earn her the nickname "Tokyo." Deciding to stay in town, she reveals little about her past, and is comforted to find little is asked. Slowly she comes to see that Black Rock is not like other towns -- due to the wind, everything, even time, works a bit differently. Black Rock, she learns, was founded by three prospectors looking for gold -- Noah, Shlomo and Apie. Noah, the most charismatic of the three, attracted quarrymen to this unforgiving place to tirelessly chip and haul the slate down from the mesa. But the big gaps left in the stories of the past hint to Tokyo that the town folk have secrets bigger than her own. No one is talking, not even the man Tokyo takes up with, Luke, Noah's son. This reticence suits Tokyo just fine, until one day a strange man shows up in Black Rock with revelations. Ultimately, no secret is immune.

Meeting Evil

Product : Meeting Evil
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "I envy your first encounter, if that is what it is, with "Meeting Evil, " one of Berger's most relentless and ingenious 'contraptions.'" --Jonathan Lethem, from the Introduction "Meeting Evil" tells an adrenaline-pumped, genuinely frightening tale of malevolence that swerves swiftly and irrevocably to a catastrophic climax. John Felton meets evil late one Monday morning when the doorbell rings. Standing on the front porch is a stranger. He wears expensive running shoes and a baseball cap and calls himself Richie. He tells John his car has stalled and asks for help. An altercation at the gas station leads to a shocking crime as violence begets violence. At the end of this harrowing day, John returns home to find Richie ensconced in his living room, chatting up his wife. The evil has somehow seeped into his life. Thus begins the transformation of an unremarkable husband and father of two into a desperate man willing to go to any length to protect his family from the darkness that threatens them. This is an extraordinary masterpiece and a chilling portrait of mounting menace played out against an everyday world of domestic routine, personified in a protagonist of basic decency grappling with both the immediate and existential meaning of true evil.

Making of the Mosaic

Product : Making of the Mosaic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Immigration policy has always been and continues to be a subject of intense political and public debate. This book examines the ideas, interests, institutions, and rhetoric that have shaped Canada's immigration history. Beginning in the pre-Confederation period, the authors tell of the dramatic transformations that have characterized our attitudes towards immigrants. While, at first, few obstacles were placed in the way of newcomers to Canada, the turn of the century brought policies of increasing selectivity. The massive deportations of the First World War and Depression eras were exceeded in harshness only by the tactics implemented during World War II, when nearly the entire Canadian population of Japanese descent was incarcerated, and when Jewish refugees fleeing from mass extermination abroad were turned away from our shores. Bringing us right up to date with the more expansionary policies of the 1990s, the authors clarify the central issues and attitudes underlying each phase and juno tune of policy decision. Their thoughtful study reveals a set of core normative and ethical values that have been fundamental in the making of the Canadian mosaic.

The Nature of Value: Axiological Investigations

Product : The Nature of Value: Axiological Investigations
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Timelessly valuable. . . . An original, systematic treatment of some important issues in moral philosophy that have been neglected in recent years. . . . A splendid book of general interest to philosophers."--James Rachels, University of Alabama at Birmingham "A major contribution to the general theory of value and moral philosophy. Its thoroughness is unsurpassed in recent philosophy."--Panayot Butchvarov, University of Iowa Ramon Lemos develops and vindicates a view of "the irreducibility, rationality, and objectivity of value as an alternative to reductionist, skeptical, relativist, and subjectivist treatments of value." While traditional in his approach, Lemos concentrates mainly on developing his own views rather than on presenting criticism of the views of others. One of the central theses of his book is that value is neither identical with nor reducible to psychological phenomena such as liking or disliking, preferring, evaluating, and valuing or disvaluing. He examines various kinds of value, the place of moral value within them, the ontological status of the bearers of value, and the relationship between morality and rationality. In clear writing he defines the issues he considers, sets out his position, and supports his views with original arguments that display his awareness of the history of moral philosophy. He also discusses some of the implications for higher education of his view of the complete human good, arguing that the task of higher education is to assist students in acquiring their complete good, not merely to increase their understanding of arts and sciences. Ramon M. Lemos is professor of philosophy at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. He is the author of "Metaphysical Investigations; Rights, Goods, and Democracy; Hobbes and Locke: Power and Consent; Rousseau's Political Philosophy: An Exposition and Interpretation; "and "Experience, Mind, and Value: Philosophical Essays "and of essays and reviews in philosophical journals.
