In the Dark

Product : In the Dark
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When you live forever, you're bound to make a few mistakes. "Children of Night, Book 1" "1969 San Francisco." World-weary Conrad Quintano should have known better than to fall in love with a human--much less Suzanne Fischer, the barely legal, adventure-seeking hippie beauty known as Desert Rose. And the very last thing he should have agreed to do was to raise her babies and protect them with his life. But even twelve-hundred-year-old master vampires can find it hard to reject a deathbed request--especially when issues of love, guilt and blood are involved. "Present day." Raised in virtual isolation, twins Marc and Julie Fischer have always known they are vampires. But they never knew their parentage--or their unique status in the vampire world--until their "uncle" Damian comes to fetch them home. The family reunion, however, isn't what they expect. They're thrust into a world for which they're totally unprepared. And the father they expected to see, Conrad, is missing. How to find him...and whom to trust? Solving the mystery of betrayal and vampire family values will prove the Beatles had it right. All you need "is" love...and an occasional side of blood. "Warning: While reading this book you may experience any of the following, an increased desire to wear flowers in your hair, dress in tie-dye or nap during the day. Other symptoms may include an intolerance to sunlight, an aversion to garlic-flavored tofu and a pronounced urge to bake...or get baked."

An explosion in Cairo propels professional aid worker, Jorja Himmermann, into a whirlwind of suspense when she shockingly discovers a mysterious ancient Egyptian ring in her purse. Who put it there? Is the person coming back for it? Is the ring a fortunate omen that will lead to true love, or is it cursed? Follow Jorja into remote and isolated regions of Sudan on her next assignment where her colleague, a Sudanese Lost Boy returning to his country after twenty years of exile, believes he is cursed. Is he the only one? Perhaps Jorja is too - as she is exposed to disasters, disease and death. The Sudan Curse is an electrifying action-packed drama. It brings Sudan's and Jorja's hardships to vivid life providing an expose of idealism, inequality, conflict, despair, and the delusion of love amid the ruggedness of a country emerging from civil war. Martina Nicolls writes from her own experiences as an independent aid worker who travels overseas to developing countries in crisis. She advises and evaluates programs on education, peace-building, democracy, community development, and child labor for the American government and the European Commission.

The Evolution of Inanimate Objects: The Life and Collected Works of Thomas Darwin (1857-1879)

Product : The Evolution of Inanimate Objects: The Life and Collected Works of Thomas Darwin (1857-1879)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While carrying out historical research at Ontario's London Asylum, psychiatrist Harry Karlinsky comes across a familiar surname in the register: one "Thomas Darwin of Down, England." Could this Thomas be a relation of the eminent scientist Charles Darwin? In a narrative woven from letters, memoir abstracts, photographs, and illustrations, what emerges is a sketch of Thomas's life - the last of eleven children born to Charles Darwin.In this stunning factitious biography, Karlinsky gives us a subtle parody and a Nabokovian tale of Darwinian theory gone wrong. Through the sometimes doctored, sometimes invented writings, we see the tragically short life of Thomas Darwin, a young scientist in his own right, whose novel application of evolutionary theory centres on knives and forks and spoons. Although decisively a work of fiction, The Evolution of Inanimate Objects invites sustained uncertainty as to whether Thomas Darwin is a character of pure invention or simply a heretofore little-known figure.

Elements of Sociology: A Critical Canadian Introduction, with Companion DVD

Product : Elements of Sociology: A Critical Canadian Introduction, with Companion DVD
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Elements of Sociology: A Critical Canadian Introduction has become a cornerstone of Oxford's domestic sociology list. The first edition, published in 2007, stood out in a crowded market and earned followers in both the college and university markets. The factors contributing to the success of the first edition of Elements of Sociology have been preserved in this new edition. First and foremost of these is the authors' narrative. The tone-conversational, direct, shot through with anecdotes that make the subject matter real and engaging for students-remains lively and uniquely Steckley/Letts. The reading level continues to be accessible and approachable for first-year students entering both college and university, and John Steckley's extensive and intimate knowledge of First Nations issues once again allows Elements to cover this perspective with an authority and sensitivity not found in competing texts. New to this second edition are three chapters covering Social Interaction and Organization, Education, and Religion, as well as a 'Going Global' box in each chapter that weaves globalization issues throughout the text. Updated statistics, coverage of current events and their relationship to sociological principles, an accompanying DVD with clips chosen specifically for its correlation with the text's content, and an updated art program as well as a completely new and fresh design guarantee that Elements of Sociology will remain a definitive critical introduction for students studying sociology at the introductory level.

In this short book, Richard Barbrook presents a collection of quotations from authors who in different ways attempt to identify an innovative element within society - 'the class of the new'. Announcing a new economic and social paradigm, this class constitutes a 'social prophecy' of the shape of work to come. From Adam Smith's 'Philosophers' of the late 18th century, down to the 'Creative Class' celebrated by sociologist Richard Florida today, the class of the new represents the future of production within and beyond capitalism.

For anyone without any background in kung-fu, but with an abiding interest in its traditional artistry, philosophy, and fundamental skills, Five Element Fist is an excellent introduction that I could not recommend more strongly.

Product : Blood in the Sand - The Holden Beach Incident
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : During the early days of WWII, the German high command orchestrated a daring plan to send three saboteurs to a large army base on the eastern coast of the U.S. Their plan was to blow up a munitions plant at Fort Bragg, N.C. The attack, code name "Base Bust," would have no military value but was designed only as a propaganda scheme to incite fear and panic among the residents living along the coast. During the week of the planned attack, the Edwards family found themselves vacationing on the beautiful strip island of Holden Beach, but little did they realize Nazi saboteurs had set up their base of operation in a cottage next to theirs. One of the agents, Karl Hess, made a decision to betray his comrades and expose the mission, after which he found refuge with the Edwards family. When the other agents learned one of their own had betrayed them, the situation quickly became dangerous for Karl and his new found friends. The turncoat became a hunted man who would have to pay for betraying the Nazi cause. The events would lead to a struggle and a terrifying shootout which caught nationwide attention.

A Population-Based Policy and Systems Change Approach to Prevent and Control Hypertension

Product : A Population-Based Policy and Systems Change Approach to Prevent and Control Hypertension
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hypertension is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, affecting nearly one in three Americans. It is prevalent in adults and endemic in the older adult population. Hypertension is a major contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and disability. Although there is a simple test to diagnose hypertension and relatively inexpensive drugs to treat it, the disease is often undiagnosed and uncontrolled. "A Population-Based Policy and Systems Change Approach to the Prevention and Control Hypertension" identifies a small set of high-priority areas in which public health officials can focus their efforts to accelerate progress in hypertension reduction and control. It offers several recommendations that embody a population-based approach grounded in the principles of measurement, system change, and accountability. The recommendations are designed to shift current hypertension reduction strategies from an individual-based approach to a population-based approach. They are also designed to improve the quality of care provided to individuals with hypertension and to strengthen the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's leadership in seeking a reduction in the sodium intake in the American diet to meet dietary guidelines. The book is an important resource for federal public health officials and organizations, especially the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as medical professionals and community health workers.

The Human Embryo Research Debates: Bioethics in the Vortex of Controversy

Product : The Human Embryo Research Debates: Bioethics in the Vortex of Controversy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Research on the early human embryo has long been recognized as essential to progress in a host of biomedical areas from reproductive medicine to the treatment of pediatric cancers. Now, with the possibility of stem cell research and cell replacement therapies, embryo research holds out the promise of cures for many serious disease conditions such as diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. Despite its importance, however, human embryo research has met powerful opposition. Drawing on his experience as a member of the NIH's Human Embryo Research Panel, Green offers a first-hand account of the embryo research debates. In telling this story, he periodically pauses to reflect on some of the leading philosophical challenges posed by embryo research and new interventions at the start of life. Among the questions he examines are: What is the impact of new biological information on our thinking about life's beginning? May parents risk injuring a child in order to have it? What role should religion play in shaping biomedical policy in a controversial area like this? This is a fascinating insider's account of one of the most important, if unsuccessful, recent efforts to come to terms with a controversial area of scientific research.

Beyond the Body Farm: A Legendary Bone Detective Explores Murders, Mysteries, and the Revolution in Forensic Science

Product : Beyond the Body Farm: A Legendary Bone Detective Explores Murders, Mysteries, and the Revolution in Forensic Science
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There is no scientist in the world like Dr. Bill Bass. A pioneer in forensic anthropology, Bass created the world's first laboratory dedicated to the study of human decomposition--three acres of land on a hillside in Tennessee where human bodies are left to the elements. His research at "the Body Farm" has revolutionized forensic science, helping police crack cold cases and pinpoint time of death. But during a forensics career that spans half a century, Bass and his work have ranged far beyond the gates of the Body Farm. In this riveting book, the bone sleuth explores the rise of modern forensic science, using fascinating cases from his career to take readers into the real world of C.S.I. Some of Bill Bass's cases rely on the simplest of tools and techniques, such as reassembling--from battered torsos and a stack of severed limbs--eleven people hurled skyward by an explosion at an illegal fireworks factory. Other cases hinge on sophisticated techniques Bass could not have imagined when he began his career: harnessing scanning electron microscopy to detect trace elements in knife wounds; and extracting DNA from a long-buried corpse, only to find that the female murder victim may have been mistakenly identified a quarter-century before. In "Beyond the Body Farm," readers will follow Bass as he explores the depths of an East Tennessee lake with a twenty-first-century sonar system, in a quest for an airplane that disappeared with two people on board thirty-five years ago; see Bass exhume fifties pop star "the Big Bopper" to determine what injuries he suffered in the plane crash that killed three rock and roll legends on "the day the music died"; and join Bass as he works to decipher an ancient Persian death scene nearly three thousand years old. Witty and engaging, Bass dissects the methods used by homicide investigators every day, leading readers on an extraordinary journey into the high-tech science that it takes to crack a case.

The English Novel, 1660-1700: An Annotated Bibliography

Product : The English Novel, 1660-1700: An Annotated Bibliography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Restoration was a period surprisingly rich in fiction, and the period between 1660 and 1700 witnessed the decline of the epic and the birth of the English novel. Literature of the period became increasingly secular in response to advancements in science, philosophy, and exploration. With growing recognition of the power of print, literary works became increasingly targeted to the masses, rather than just to the educated members of the upper class. John Bunyan's classic tale of salvation, IThe Pilgrim's ProgressR, became one of the most widely read works of the last few centuries and has been translated into scores of languages around the world. In recent years, the writings of Aphra Behn have elicited a growing critical response and have led scholars to reassess the place of women in early modern England. But with the exception of Bunyan and Behn, the English novel written between 1660 and 1700 remains a comparatively neglected area. Nonetheless, many other authors produced works of fiction in genres such as the criminal biography, the Utopian novel, the scientific voyage to another world, and the heroic romance. This reference book establishes a list of novels that appeared between 1660 and 1700 and provides a comprehensive annotated bibliography of critical and scholarly studies. The first part of the book presents overviews of existing bibliographies, anthologies, and general contextual works on the early English novel. The second part of the book includes alphabetically arranged sections for individual authors of the period, listing editions and scholarly studies of particular works. A chronology lists the novels according to year of publication, and detailed indexes conclude the volume.

Cosmopolitan Culture and Consumerism in Chick Lit

Product : Cosmopolitan Culture and Consumerism in Chick Lit
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cosmopolitan Culture and Consumerism in Chick Lit focuses on the literary phenomenon popularly known as chick lit, and the way in which this genre interfaces with magazines, self-help books, romantic comedies, and domestic-advice publications. This recent trend in women's popular fiction, which began in 1996 with the publication of British author Helen Fielding's novel Bridget Jones's Diary, uses first person narration to chronicle the romantic tribulations of its young, single, white, heterosexual, urban heroines. Critics of the genre have failed to fully appreciate chick lit's complicated representations of women as both readers and consumers. In this study, Smith argues that chick lit questions the consume and achieve promise offered by advice manuals marketed toward women, subverting the consumer industry to which it is so closely linked and challenging cultural expectations of women as consumers, readers, and writers, and of popular fiction itself.

The Two Intellectual Worlds of John Locke: Man, Person, and Spirits in the "Essay"

Product : The Two Intellectual Worlds of John Locke: Man, Person, and Spirits in the "Essay"
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Using his intimate knowledge of John Locke's writings, John W. Yolton shows that Locke comprehends "human understanding" as a subset of a larger understanding of other intelligent Beings-angels, spirits, and an omniscient God. Locke's books on Christianity (The Reasonableness of Christianity and Paraphrases of St. Paul's Epistles) have received extensive analysis and commentary, but little attention has been given to the place of his Essay concerning Human Understanding in his religious and theological beliefs. Yolton shows that Locke's account of what it is to be human in that work is profoundly religious.Yolton's book opens with an attempt to sort out several important terms basic to Locke's account of identity: man, self, person, and soul. A number of rarely examined components of Locke's thought emerge: the nature of man, the nature of a human being, and the place of man in the universe among the other creatures. Some will be surprised to learn that the domain of God, angels, and spirits is a part of Locke's universe, where it is considered the hoped-for destination of the just.The Two Intellectual Worlds of John Locke also includes Yolton's exploration of Locke's commitment to immaterial principles for understanding the world; his obsession with happiness; the dialectical tensions between man, person, and soul; several interesting conjectures about spirits; and the notion of natural philosophy that includes speculation about spirits as well as bodies.

Peers, Pirates, and Persuasion: Rhetoric in the Peer-To-Peer Debates

Product : Peers, Pirates, and Persuasion: Rhetoric in the Peer-To-Peer Debates
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : PEERS, PIRATES, AND PERSUASION: RHETORIC IN THE PEER-TO-PEER DEBATES investigates the role of rhetoric in shaping public perceptions about a novel technology: peer-to-peer file-sharing networks. While broadband Internet services now allow speedy transfers of complex media files, Americans face real uncertainty about whether peer-to-peer file sharing is or should be legal. John Logie analyzes the public arguments growing out of more than five years of debate sparked by the advent of Napster, the first widely adopted peer-to-peer technology. The debate continues with the second wave of peer-to-peer file transfer utilities like Limewire, KaZaA, and BitTorrent. With PEERS, PIRATES, AND PERSUASION, Logie joins the likes of Lawrence Lessig, Siva Vaidhyanathan, Jessica Litman, and James Boyle in the ongoing effort to challenge and change current copyright law so that it fulfills its purpose of fostering creativity and innovation while protecting the rights of artists in an attention economy. Logie examines metaphoric frames-warfare, theft, piracy, sharing, and hacking, for example-that dominate the peer-to-peer debates and demonstrably shape public policy on the use and exchange of digital media. PEERS, PIRATES, AND PERSUASION identifies the Napster case as a failed opportunity for a productive national discussion on intellectual property rights and responsibilities in digital environments. Logie closes by examining the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the "Grokster" case, in which leading peer-to-peer companies were found to be actively inducing copyright infringement. The Grokster case, Logie contends, has already produced the chilling effects that will stifle the innovative spirit at theheart of the Internet and networked communities.

Mighty Peculiar Elections: The New South Gubernatorial Campaigns of 1970 and the Changing Politic

Product : Mighty Peculiar Elections: The New South Gubernatorial Campaigns of 1970 and the Changing Politic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Mighty Peculiar Elections, Randy Sanders captures a moment in a time of transition when four gubernatorial races in 1970 revealed a great deal about the politics of race and changing attitudes in the South as well as the nation. He shows that even as southerners grappled with desegregation, voters in Arkansas, Florida, South Carolina and Georgia elected a group of governors who reflected a newfound attitude of racial moderation. In the first significant exploration of the gubernatorial races of Dale Bumpers, Reubin Askew, John West and Jimmy Carter, Sanders tells exactly what was going on in each state and in each election campaign. Incorporating evidence from archives, media records, personal papers and author interviews, Sanders' approach focuses not only on the intrinsically interesting details of the campaigns, but on important developments. The 1970 elections marked the first time that large numbers of African-Americans voted in the South, resulting in black-white coalitions that discouraged campaigns dominated by racial harangues. In turn, candidates eschewed the traditional politics of racial discord and demagoguery to appeal to hope rather than fear, and the harmonious tone of moderation began to resonate in a region long beleaguered by the cacophony of racial discord. Although other astute political observers have noted this group of successful governors and their departure from the prevailing form of racial politics, Mighty Peculiar Elections is the first book to detail their efforts to gain office and the reactions of the southern electorate to their new approach. Scholars, historians and political scientists interested in southern politics and race relations, as wellas anyone interested in the candidates and participants involved in these four states, will relish a campaign study of this pivotal election year.

Segundo's method of deideologization is appropriated to argue that relevant theological reflection must depart from the exposing of religio-political ideologies that justify human opression in the name of God and their need to be effectively countered by the creation of new theological presuppositions rooted in liberation. Singleton then contextualizes Segundo's method by offering Cone's theological perspective as the best example of such an approach in America insofar as it is able to discern the link between religio-political ideologies and black oppression.

Islam, Liberalism and Human Rights: Implications for International Relations

Product : Islam, Liberalism and Human Rights: Implications for International Relations
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This timely book, newly revised for this edition, addresses the question of human rights in the international context, focusing in particular on the interaction between human rights as a value and norm in international relations and Islam as a constituent of political culture in particular societies. Katerina Dalacoura's argument proceeds at two levels. Firstly, it reaches a consistent normative position on the question of human rights. Secondly, the theoretical argument is reinforced through a detailed study both of the precepts of Islam and the role of Islam in the political process of 20th century Egypt and Tunisia. Dalacoura demonstrates that the interpretation of Islam in relation to human rights principles is not static, but is subject to reformulation.

Description : The Gambardier: the Experiences of a Battery of Heavy Artillery on the Western Front During the First World War The First World War with the big guns Gambardier is a title-not completely complimentary-for a heavy or siege artilleryman. It was bestowed most usually by his comrade (but rival) of the field artillery. This is the story of a young officer-a Gambardier-from the outbreak of the Great War to its end on the Western Front. In this compelling and unusual book, we experience life on campaign, the tension and danger of Observation Posts (O. Ps), the brutality of counter barrages from the enemy-the German artillery, and the humour and incident of life amongst a small group of men thrown together in adversity. The big guns themselves are the real characters of this book, and the author provides a fascinating and compelling detail about their various types, their rate of fire, their ammunition, transportation and maintenance.

Bridging the Gap: The Christian Sacraments and Human Belonging

Product : Bridging the Gap: The Christian Sacraments and Human Belonging
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Bible and the sacraments go together as the cornerstone of Christian identity. Wherever Christianity is practiced in traditional ways, converts are baptized and bread is broken together. Countless books have been written about the theological significance of these events, but their strictly human meaning and value - as ways of helping people to make sense of themselves and enjoy their lives together - has sometimes been overlooked. The sacraments are, first and foremost, signs of belonging, to God and with one another. They are sacramental not only because of the circumstances surrounding their origin, but also because of their function in incorporating the personal belonging to which they point. Bridging the Gap explores the human side of sacrament - the emotional hunger which it addresses, what this means from a theological point of view, and what it still means for us today, despite all the changes which have taken place over the ages in the world in which we live. By looking at the way human beings relate to one another, we can begin to see the amazing relevance of these traditional ceremonies - their God given ability to heal our personal woundedness and bring to the forefront the reality of belonging together in community. The significance of sacramental worship for human growth and development is examined, using insights gained from the anthropological study of religion. The contribution to psychological health and the establishment of individual identity through personal relationship is identified as the basis of our sense of belonging. Bridging the Gap proceeds from the conviction that a better understanding of the dynamics of our belonging would contribute to the Church's mission within a fragmented society.

Exchange and the Maiden: Marriage in Sophoclean Tragedy

Product : Exchange and the Maiden: Marriage in Sophoclean Tragedy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Marriage is a central concern in five of the seven extant plays of the Greek tragedian Sophocles. In this pathfinding study, Kirk Ormand delves into the ways in which these plays represent and problematize marriage, thus offering insights into how Athenians thought about the institution of marriage. Ormand takes a two-fold approach. He first explores the legal and economic underpinnings of Athenian marriage, an institution designed to guarantee the legitimate continuation of patrilineal households. He then shows how Sophocles' plays Trachiniae, Electra, Antigone, Ajax, and Oedipus Tyrannus both reinforce and critique this ideology by representing marriage as a homosocial exchange between men, in which women are objects who may attempt--but always fail--to become self-acting subjects. These fresh readings provide the first systematic study of marriage in Sophocles. They draw important connections between drama and marriage as rituals concerned with controlling potentially disruptive female subjectivities.

Game Design Complete

Product : Game Design Complete
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Most books on game design and development treat the topic as if designers worked in a vacuum. But in the real world, game design almost always needs to work within the constraints of time, money, hardware and software limitations, marketing issues, sales potential, and other challenges. Anyone who views this as an opportunity rather than a problem can learn to create exciting and truly original titles that become highly successful. The "complete" approach to game design is all about getting into the trenches and uncovering the real-world constraints and issues and providing design solutions that really work. This highly practical and informative guide shows that designing successful games involves critical factors such as how to design for licenses when a game is based on a film, book, or TV show; how to design for technology that has significant limitations such as limited memory, smaller displays, and limited CPU capacity; how to create designs that are compelling and really hook the player; and how to spot and take advantage of key design trends that are leading the industry. No other book like "Game Design Complete" brings together the amazing insight of today's top minds to cover topics like designing unique characters, dealing with strange and challenging environments like Mars or the artic, designing a game around famous people, designing a game to stand out as a brand, designing for different demographics, and much more. Throughout, the book is jam-packed with design related war stories, tips, and techniques that really work.

Democracy Without Enemies

Product : Democracy Without Enemies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Up to now, modernization has always been conceived of, in contrast to the worlds of tradition and religion, as a liberation from the constraints of nature. What happens, however, if industrial society becomes a 'tradition' to itself? What if its own necessities, functional principles and fundamental concepts are undermined, broken up and demystified with the same ruthlessness as were the supposedly eternal truths of earlier epochs? These questions are the focus of Ulrich Beck's Democracy without Enemies. The conflict of the future, he argues, will no longer be between East and West, between communism and capitalism, but between the countries, regions and groups involved in primary modernization and those that are attempting to relativize and reform the project of modernity self-critically, based on their experience of it. The conflict of the future will be between the two modernities which will battle over the compatibility of survival and human rights for all citizens of the earth.

The Psychology of Associative Learning

Product : The Psychology of Associative Learning
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is hard to think of any significant aspect of our lives that is not influenced by what we have learned in the past. Of fundamental importance is our ability to learn the ways in which events are related to one another, called associative learning. This book provides a fresh look at associative learning theory and reviews extensively the advances made over the past twenty years. The Psychology of Associative Learning begins by establishing that the human associative learning system is rational in the sense that it accurately represents event relationships. David Shanks goes on to consider the informational basis of learning, in terms of the memorization of instances, and discusses at length the application of connectionist models to human learning. The book concludes with an evaluation of the role of rule induction in associative learning. This will be essential reading for graduate students and researchers in psychology and the behavioral sciences.

The Social Structures of the Economy

Product : The Social Structures of the Economy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Much orthodox economic theory is based on assumptions which are treated as self-evident: supply and demand are regarded as independent entities, the individual is assumed to be a rational agent who knows his interests and how to make decisions corresponding to them, and so on. But one has only to examine an economic transaction closely, as Pierre Bourdieu does here for the buying and selling of houses, to see that these abstract assumptions cannot explain what happens in reality. As Bourdieu shows, the market is constructed by the state, which can decide, for example, whether to promote private housing or collective provision. And the individuals involved in the transaction are immersed in symbolic constructions which constitute, in a strong sense, the value of houses, neighbourhoods and towns. The abstract and illusory nature of the assumptions of orthodox economic theory has been criticised by some economists, but Bourdieu argues that we must go further. Supply, demand, the market and even the buyer and seller are products of a process of social construction, and so-called 'economic' processes can be adequately described only by calling on sociological methods. Instead of seeing the two disciplines in antagonistic terms, it is time to recognize that sociology and economics are in fact part of a single discipline, the object of which is the analysis of social facts, of which economic transactions are in the end merely one aspect. This brilliant study by the most original sociologist of post-war France will be essential reading for students and scholars of sociology, economics, anthropology and related disciplines.

Ecology, the Ascendent Perspective

Product : Ecology, the Ascendent Perspective
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ecology, Ulanowicz argues, needs a more robust central paradigm, and this book presents one derived from current work in information theory, ecosystem energetics, and complexity theory; the result is a theoretical and empirical tool kit better able to measure the developmental status of any living community. Ranging widely to explore critical issues in the history of science -- order, causality, progress, laws -- Ulanowicz sets forth a coherent theoretical framework for ecology. He demonstrates that mechanical models can capture behavior of relatively simple, isolated populations, but fail to explain the rich, complex, and sometimes unpredictable mix of order and disorder that characterizes larger systems. A challenge to existing Newtonian and Darwinian paradigms, this book suggests ways to bring ecology from the fringes to the center of science.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The profound changes wrought by the feminist movement were by no means restricted to women. In the years since feminism has taken root, the role of men and masculinity has begun to undergo its own redefinition. Michael A. Messner provides a sociological framework to understand the responses of men to the changes, challenges, and crises in the social organization of gender. By examining not only what certain groups of men say about gender but what they do, Messner helps to illuminate the various social movements engaged with the politics of masculinity. Politics of Masculinities is one of the first books in the new Gender Lens series, which will look at the social world through the lens of gender. The mission of the series is to unpack the assumptions about gender that pervade social life, and to examine the centrality of these assumptions to the way we perceive and interpret our world. Politics of Masculinities is an ideal introduction to the discussion of gender roles and masculinity. This book will be of interest to students and professionals involved in gender studies, sociology, and menAEs studies. This product is now available from: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Due to unusually high operating temperatures, intense radiation, viscous slags, dense metals, and other factors, the design and operation of metallurgical processes is an especially demanding task. This volume describes the engineering principles involved in this industry, beginning with an introduction to the basic mechanisms of heat, mass, and fluid flow, while showing the origin of associated transport coefficients: diffusivity, conductivity, and viscosity. The discussions are supplemented with examples and exercises. Empirical techniques for modelling and process design are presented, followed by numerical techniques and computer programs needed for "ground-up" quantitative descriptions of typical metallurgical processes. A generous appendix provides a wealth of detail on the thermodynamic and physical properties of substances commonly encountered by metallurgists, while a short section on metallurgical thermodynamics illustrates the way these tabulations should be used. The paperback edition has been corrected and updated, while a new section on the numerical simulation of flow processes has been added. A key text for engineers, scientists, and students, this book offers a unique look at the rich variety of phenomena that govern the behavior and kinetics of metallurgical processing operations.

Easily Missed Fractures and Corner Signs in Radiology

Product : Easily Missed Fractures and Corner Signs in Radiology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The rise of malpractice litigation has placed pressure on the radiologist, ultimately responsible for the detection of any pathology evident on the film. In most cases, it is easy to recognize an abnormality, however, it is somewhat harder to identify pathology out of the primary field of view and to locate subtle abnormalities in the margins and dark areas of films. Many such misses are preventable, either by improving radiological technique or by learning to sharpen powers of observation. This book attempts to acheive the latter.By providing a collection of potential errors and oversights, this text encourages the reader to identify easily missed fractures and corner clues, using all possible information on the film. Presenting the author's most challenging and instructive cases in atlas style, each chapter tests the radiologist's expertise by addressing a particular organ system. Whether a seasoned expert or a novice, this is an essential learning experience that will considerably refine the radiologist's diagnostic acumen.

Indian Mounds of Wisconsin

Product : Indian Mounds of Wisconsin
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : More mounds were built by ancient Native American societies in Wisconsin than in any other region of North America -- between 15,000 and 20,000 mounds, at least 4,000 of which remain today. Most impressive are the effigy mounds, huge earthworks sculpted into the shapes of birds, animals, and other forms, not found anywhere else in the world in such concentrations. This book, written for general readers but incorporating the most recent research, offers a comprehensive overview of these intriguing earthworks and answers the questions, Who built the mounds? When and why were they built? Using evidence drawn from archaeology, ethnography, ethnohistory, linguistics, and the traditions and beliefs of present-day Native Americans in the Midwest, archaeologists Birmingham and Eisenberg offer an important new interpretation of the effigy mound groups as "cosmological maps" that model ancient belief systems and social relations. Although the archaeological record indicates that most ancient Native American societies in the upper Midwest built mounds between about 800 B.C. and A.D. 1200, the effigy mounds bear such similarity to the beliefs and clan structures of the Ho-Chunk, Ioway, and closely related nations that it is extremely likely that these people are descendants of the effigy mound builders. Indian Mounds of Wisconsin includes a travel guide to sites in Wisconsin that can be visited by the public, including many in state, county, and local parks.

Computational Welding Mechanics

Product : Computational Welding Mechanics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Computational Welding Mechanics (CWM) provides readers with a complete introduction to the principles and applications of computational welding including coverage of the methods engineers and designers are using in computational welding mechanics to predict distortion and residual stress in welded structures, thereby creating safer, more reliable and lower cost structures. Drawing upon years of practical experience and the study of computational welding mechanics the authors instruct the reader how to: - understand and interpret computer simulation and virtual welding techniques including an in depth analysis of heat flow during welding, microstructure evolution and distortion analysis and fracture of welded structures, - relate CWM to the processes of design, build, inspect, regulate, operate and maintain welded structures, - apply computational welding mechanics to industries such as ship building, natural gas and automobile manufacturing. Ideally suited for practicing engineers and engineering students, Computational Welding Mechanics is a must-have book for understanding welded structures and recent technological advances in welding, and it provides a unified summary of recent research results contributed by other researchers.

In Another Country

Product : In Another Country
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : 'In Another Country' tells the dramatic story of one woman's experience of war and love. Her passion for Italy, coupled with a desire to escape family pressures, drew Margaret Roosevelt into an abusive, constrictive marriage to an Italian, and a precarious situation in the war-torn Italy of the 1930s. Wanted by the S.S. and forced into hiding with a young child during the war, Margaret was to go to work for an Allied Intelligence group after the liberation, and embark on a passionate, tangled affair that would awaken previously unkown feelings of love, of belonging, of loss and of desolation. Margaret Roosevelt's vividly drawn, engaging recollections share the most intimate of feelings and provide a precious glimpse of a time, for many, assigned to the history books but which should never be forgotten.

Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea

Product : Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1857 the SS Central America foundered in a hurricane and sank 200 miles off the coast of the Carolinas. More than 400 lives and 21 tons of gold were lost. It was the worst peacetime disaster at sea in American history - and a story lost to legend for over a century. In 1989, Tommy Thompson locates the Central America and does what no one - including the U.S. Navy - has ever done before: establish a working presence on the deep-ocean floor. This is a true story of history, science and old-fashioned American grit.

Elizabeth Stoddard: Stories

Product : Elizabeth Stoddard: Stories
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Most widely known today as the author of 'The Morgesons' (1862), her first of three novels, Elizabeth Stoddard was also a prolific writer of short stories, children's tales, poems, essays, travel writing, and journalism pieces. Originally published between 1859 and 1890 in such magazines as 'Harper's Monthly, ' 'Harper's Bazaar, ' and the 'Atlantic Monthly, ' the sixteen stories included here demonstrate the versatility of a fascinating writer who was one of the most original and unique voices in nineteenth-century American literature. A pioneering predecessor of regionalist authors Mary Wilkins Freeman, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Kate Chopin, as well as a precursor of American modernism, Stoddard's writing is remarkable for its almost total lack of sentimentality, pervasive use of irony, psychological depth of richly drawn characters, intense atmospheric descriptions of New England, concise language, and innovative use of narrative voice and structure. Her investigation of relations between the sexes, a dominant focus of her fiction, analyzes emotions ranging from love and desire to disdain, aggression, and depression. Grouped by thematic sections that represent the full scope of Stoddard's work in terms of tone, topic, and style, these complex and entertaining stories have lost none of their immediacy and freshness. This invaluable collection will reintroduce an overlooked yet major woman writer to a new generation of readers.

The Recruiting Officer

Product : The Recruiting Officer
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Farquhar's last two plays, The Recruiting Officer and The Beaux' Stratagem, have been called 'the last worthwhile comedies of the Restoration tradition'. Written during Farquhar's stint in Shrewsbury as part of a recruiting mission in 1704-5, The Recruiting Officer is a buoyant, whimsical piece stocked by a fairly conventional cast of characters: the rake-hero and his spirited lady (who dons breeches in the course of the action), his sober friend and the heroine's serious friend, the buffoon/coxcomb and his ill-fated amorous or heroic ventures. What makes the play entertaining is Farquhar's light, humane touch; what makes it original is his depiction of a real-life provincial town and the impact that ongoing warfare (in this case the War of the Spanish Succession) had on its civilian society.

Leopoldo Lugones: Selected Writings

Product : Leopoldo Lugones: Selected Writings
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Argentina's best-known writer during his lifetime, Leopoldo Lugones's work spans many literary styles and ideological positions. He was influential as a modernist poet, as a precursor of the avant-garde, and also as the poet of Argentine nature. His short stories (Las Fuerzas Extranas: 1906) were early examples of the fantastic in Latin American fiction and influenced Borges, Quiroga, and others. They reflect an interest in the uncanny and inspired contemporary interest in animism and occultism because the protagonists of many the stories were scientists and doctors experimenting in the transmutation of thought. His prose works include La Guerra Gaucha (1905) and the essay El Payador (1916) in which he idealized the gaucho as a heroic figure, popular poet, and a symbol of Argentine identity. Lugones altered his political views many times, adopting radical anarchism, and later in life, fascism. He was therefore a controversial figure, both accalimed and scorned by his contemporaries. His adherence to the importance of literary form drew criticism from the new generation of writers, such as Borges, but Borges later stated in 1955 that "Lugones was and continues to be the greatest Argentine writer."

Meet Me on the Paisley Roof

Product : Meet Me on the Paisley Roof
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Trussell Jones has a problem. He is crazy in love with a beautiful girl named Ellen. The problem? He has no car. His stepmother, who believes that she is spiritually connected to Queen Victoria, won't let him drive. Furthermore, she is afraid Trussell is trying to kill her. Not to be overlooked is the fact that Trussell is being pursued by a gang of armed redneck motorcycle hoods, while his neighbors are preoccupied with changing visions of St. Francis. Just another heartwarming tale of a boy in love with a girl? Hardly. This delightfully quixotic coming-of-age story, set in Columbus, Georgia in the 1950s, truly has something to shock and beguile even the most jaded reader. Its irreverent protagonist will take you on a road trip of hits, near misses, twists, and sudden turns that'll set you on your ear. You'll be unable to put the book down, until you reach its charming yet totally unpredictable conclusion.

Remembering Charlotte: Postcards from a New South City, 1905-1950

Product : Remembering Charlotte: Postcards from a New South City, 1905-1950
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From early hand-colored cards printed in Germany to photographic views in both color and black and white, Mary Boyer's extensive collection of postcards yields a unique glimpse of Charlotte, North Carolina, during the time of extraordinary growth that underpins today's dynamic city. The postcards--many of them rare and valuable--portray people, hotels, parks, city and street views, residences, schools, sports venues, government buildings, churches, theaters, and more. Many of the buildings portrayed in the cards were subsequently demolished to make way for larger, more modern structures. The extensive captions go well beyond simply describing the scene on each postcard, offering little-known details of Charlotte's diverse social history and lore. The resulting pictorial history forms a charming visual record of a Charlotte that has largely vanished, one that will be treasured by long-term and new residents of the city and welcomed by the legions of postcard collectors all over the world.

Columbus:: 1860-1910

Product : Columbus:: 1860-1910
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1798, a settlement named Franklinton sprouted up on the west bank of the Scioto River, just below the Olentangy River. The Ohio legislature accepted a proposal in 1812 for the high bank east of the Scioto River, across the river from Franklinton, to be the site of the capital city. The location was given the name Columbus, even though it had no inhabitants at the time. Columbus grew quickly and became the county seat. The arrival of the National Road, the Ohio Canal, and the railroads contributed greatly to Columbus's growth. This capital city developed first as a transportation hub, then as a manufacturing center, and finally as the commerce, education, and government center that it is today. Columbus: 18601910 explores the rich history of this amazing city through vintage images of its citizens, businesses, organizations, and historic events.
