Taking anecdotes from history, the latest research, and insights about couples who stayed the course, writer and journalist Catherine Blyth offers an engaging tour of married life with entertaining advice on how to enjoy a successful marriage. She also shows how to deal with wandering eyes or in-laws who should be outlawed, and answers vital questions such as: Can housework improve sex life? Why should husbands argue?

Fresh Approaches to the Evaluation of Teaching: New Directions for Teaching and Learning

Product : Fresh Approaches to the Evaluation of Teaching: New Directions for Teaching and Learning
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Student ratings have long been the primary means of evaluating teaching in higher education, but are they sufficient to meet the increasing demands in public accountability and the changes in learning needs? This volume explores a wide range of alternative approaches to assessing teaching performance and presents methods for documenting and judging teaching that have often been overlooked in the sometimes acrimonious debate about the reliability and validity of student questionnaires. Contributors discuss the underlying issue and principals that affect all forms of evaluation - making links between teaching methods and learning outcomes. They explore the goals and applications of the teaching portfolio, a widely used alternative to the sole reliance on student ratings; and discuss the strength and weaknesses of evaluating teaching through teaching awards. They also examine technology and its importance in automated evaluation systems, the role of formative evaluation in the scholarship of teaching; the role of evaluation in the accreditation of university teachers; and the evaluation of teaching for entire programs, departments, and institutions. Presenting a concept of interpretive and critical evaluation that considers knowledge about teaching as communicative and emancipatory, this volume is a frank and invigorating analysis of the emerging theories and applications of teaching evaluation. This is the 88th issue of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Teaching and Learning.

The Ethics of Teaching 2nd Ed CL

Product : The Ethics of Teaching 2nd Ed CL
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Ethics of Teaching" provides a frank discussion of the most frequently encountered ethical dilemmas that can arise in educational settings, as well as tips on how to avoid these predicaments and how to deal with them when they do occur. The goal is to stimulate discussion and raise faculties' consciousness about ethical issues. Ethical dilemmas are presented as short, engaging case scenarios, most of which are based on actual situations, so as to furnish more realistic and interesting stimuli for individual reflection and group discussion. These scenarios offer the opportunity to consider the subtle complexities inherent in the social and psychological contexts in which educator-student interactions occur and the effects of those complexities on ethical decision making. Each case is followed by a detailed analysis and advice. The book's 195 cases are grouped into 22 chapters representing topics, such as the controversial classroom presentations and assignments, debatable testing and grading practices, problematic student-faculty interactions, dual-role relationships with students, collegial conflicts, managing very difficult students, and confidentiality dilemmas. "The Ethics of Teaching: A Casebook, Second Edition: " *focuses on commonly encountered ethical gray areas that have no clear solution; *includes questions to stimulate discussion of related ethical issues; *concludes with a chapter on prevention, peer mentoring, and intervention; and *serves as excellent assigned reading to stimulate group discussion in teaching workshops and faculty development programs. The first edition of this book evolved by collecting a variety of teaching situations that commonly occur in college and university settings. The authors then created responses to the situations and circulated both the cases and the responses to reviewers from a number of departments across the country. As a result, the vast majority of the cases are discipline free. The second edition features many new cases to reflect recent trends and events related to academic ethics. Questions were added to stimulate discussion and to further elaborate the issues. "The Ethics of Teaching: A Casebook" is ideal for college and university faculty, graduate assistants, and administrators involved in workshops, graduate teaching assistant courses, and faculty development and new faculty orientation programs. As a result of the book's cross-disciplinary development, it will be beneficial to faculty from a broad spectrum of disciplines.

The U.S. Supreme Court and the Electoral Process

Product : The U.S. Supreme Court and the Electoral Process
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has considered the constitutionality of a wide range of questions involving voting and elections, representation, and political participation. Yet until now, these powerful rulings that define how our political processes work have been made and analyzed only on a case-by-case basis. In this book, academics and practitioners in both law and political science examine major themes raised by the role of Supreme Court decisions in shaping the electoral process. Both challenging and supporting Court actions, these diverse viewpoints show how Court actions mold not only our electoral politics but also constitutional doctrine and fundamental concepts of democracy. Specific cases concern racial redistricting, term limits, political patronage, campaign finance regulations, third party ballot access, and state ballot initiatives limiting civil liberties -- issues that that directly affect how we choose those who govern us.

Free Magic Secrets Revealed: A Memoir

Product : Free Magic Secrets Revealed: A Memoir
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Like all great adventures, this one starts with someone trying to get a girl. After all, King Meneleaus didn't go to Troy for the baklava. Playwright, journalist, comedian and bestselling author Mark Leiren-Young recalls his teenage escapades in his hilarious new memoir and coming of age story, "Free Magic Secrets Revealed." A geeky bully-magnet, Mark was seventeen and wanted to be a playwright, but even more than that, he wanted to impress Sarah, who he'd pined for since elementary school. It's 1979 and, thanks to Doug Henning, magic is hip so Mark hooks up with Randy, a stoner magician, and Kyle, an ambitious young actor, to chase fame--and the women of their dreams. The three teenagers team up to put on a small-time magic show, attracting the attention of a big-time promoter who convinces them they have a shot at a world tour . . . except they need bigger illusions, an original soundtrack and a better supporting cast. Seeing a chance at having all their dreams come true, they sacrifice their grades, their money and eventually their dream girls to create a show they hope will be like "Star Wars" on stage. But they're not that good. Mark's script makes no sense because it's part one of a trilogy. Randy promises to build magic tricks he can't actually make. And Kyle will do anything for the show--except wear the helmet that's critical to the plot and half the illusions. And is it worth getting your head cut off to get a date? The show goes on and the guys embrace their fate--determined to show the world what they can do.

Power to the Patient: Selected Health Care Issues and Policy Solutions

Product : Power to the Patient: Selected Health Care Issues and Policy Solutions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : HOW CAN WE BEGIN TO CONTROL THE RISING COSTS OF HEALTH CARE? When calculated on a per capita basis, the United States has the costliest health care system in the world. The debate rages on over how to cope with the rising costs of medical care, with proposed solutions ranging from a single-payer system with broad government control to loosely defined market-driven plans. "Power to the Patient: Selected Health Care Issues and Policy Solutions" looks at three key elements of health care costs--third-party payment, the realities of growth in medical spending, and the medical liability system--and offers thoughtful, realistic suggestions to help stem the tide of rising expenses for everyone. Scott W. Atlas proposes changing the nature of health care insurance so that patients make direct payments to their health care providers. The critical focus, he says, should be on empowering the patient by putting consumers in charge of their money and letting them make cost-conscious decisions about spending health care dollars. Daniel P. Kessler reviews the current debate over the medical liability system, examining three areas of proposed reforms: limits on liability, "patients' bill of rights" proposals, and alternative reforms such as medical practice guidelines, dispute resolutions, and no-fault insurance. Mark V. Pauly looks at the reasons why real medical spending has increased and concludes that it is virtually impossible to lower costs without lowering quality of care.

Product : Papa's Baby: Paternity and Artificial Insemination
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Once considered nationalists, many insurgent groups are now labeled as terrorists and thought to endanger not just their own people, but the world. As the unprecedented trends in political violence among insurgents have taken shape, and as hundreds of thousands of civilians continue to be displaced, brutalized, and killed, Inside Insurgency provides startling insights that help to explain the nature of insurgent behavior. Claire Metelits draws from over 100 interviews with insurgent soldiers, commanders, government officials, scholars, and civilians in Sudan, Kenya, Colombia, Turkey, and Iraq, offering a new understanding of insurgent group behavior and providing compelling and intimate portraits of the SPLA, FARC, and PKK. The engaging narratives that emerge from her on-the-ground fieldwork provide incredibly valuable and accurate first-hand documentation of the tactics of some of the world's most notorious insurgent groups. Inside Insurgency offers the reader a timely and intimate understanding of these movements, and explains the changing behavior of insurgent groups toward the civilians they claim to represent.

Description : Paul Valent sees that the dialectic is not between "life and death" but between "life and trauma." This text theorizes that the big issues of life can now be approached through the science of traumatology. Through communication with, and observation of, people whose lives have been stretched under stress or disrupted by trauma, the fulfilling components of their lives can be defined, oriented and categorized. It introduces the theory on the back of clinical and historical material, examining the current state of such concepts as stress, trauma, defences, memories, post post-traumatic stress disorder, and other illnesses. It should be of interest to those in the healing professions or to those who work with traumatized individuals, lawyers, social workers, clergy and those in the humanities in general.

Variational Methods for Structural Optimization

Product : Variational Methods for Structural Optimization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In recent decades, it has become possible to turn the design process into computer algorithms. By applying different computer oriented methods the topology and shape of structures can be optimized and thus designs systematically improved. These possibilities have stimulated an interest in the mathematical foundations of structural optimization. The challenge of this book is to bridge a gap between a rigorous mathematical approach to variational problems and the practical use of algorithms of structural optimization in engineering applications. The foundations of structural optimization are presented in a sufficiently simple form to make them available for practical use and to allow their critical appraisal for improving and adapting these results to specific models. Special attention is to pay to the description of optimal structures of composites; to deal with this problem, novel mathematical methods of nonconvex calculus of variation are developed. The exposition is accompanied by examples.

Description : The privatization carried out under the Thatcher and Major governments in Britain has been widely (although not universally) considered a success, and has greatly influenced the privatization of state industries in the transition economies of Eastern Europe. Massimo Florio's systematic analysis is the first comprehensive treatment of the overall welfare impact of this broad national policy of divestiture. Using the tools of social cost-benefit analysis, Florio assesses the effect of privatization on consumers, taxpayers, firms, shareholders, and workers. His conclusion may be surprising to some; his findings suggest that the changeover to private ownership per se had little effect on long-term trends in prices and productivity in Britain and contributed to regressive redistribution. After historical and theoretical overviews of privatization and a look at macroeconomic trends in the Thatcher-Major era, Florio considers in detail the microeconomic effects of British privatization on several key groups. In successive chapters, he examines firms and productivity changes; shareholders' windfall gains and evidence of underpricing and outperformance in privatized companies; workers, management, and changes in industrial relations; consumers and the quantity and quality of goods after the change to public ownership; and taxpayers and the interplay between privatization and tax reform. He follows these chapters with a case study of British Telecom--significant not only because it was the largest divestiture of the period but also because of its influence on subsequent telecommunications privatization elsewhere. The final chapter considers the overall quantitative impact of the Thatcher-Major privatization on all sectors and its relationship with regulation and liberalization. "The Great Divestiture" not only offers an exhaustive analysis of the effects of the British process of privatization but also illustrates a method of inquiry and a testable research approach that could prove to be useful in similar studies of other countries.

Growing Up in Kenya: Rural Schooling and Girls

Product : Growing Up in Kenya: Rural Schooling and Girls
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Growing Up in Kenya: Rural Schooling and Girls reveals the clash between the traditional values and roles of women and the school culture and expectations. Traditionally, women were brought up to value the roles of wife, mother, and cultivator. This book shows the struggle rural girls experience as they try to fit into these traditional roles while meeting the expectations of the school curriculum. Although education is central to a woman's status, because it affects every other aspect of her life, studies indicate that parents have lower occupational aspirations for their daughters than for their sons. This is true for higher socio-economic groups as well as when the daughters' academic performance is superior to that of the sons'.

Broadway Yearbook 2000-2001: A Relevant and Irreverent Record

Product : Broadway Yearbook 2000-2001: A Relevant and Irreverent Record
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Broadway Yearbook 2000-2001 is a relevant and irreverent record of the theatrical year. A vivid album of the year on the Great White Way, Broadway Yearbook gives readers front-row seats for the phenomenon of The Producers and the rest of the season's hits and misses. Steven Suskin's acclaimed new theatre annual delivers a vibrant, candid, and thoughtful account of every show to hit the boards: exciting musicals such as The Full Monty and the revival of 42nd Street; intriguing new plays like Proof and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife; and fascinating failures, including Jane Eyre and the beleaguered Seussical. Broadway Yearbook tells us what the shows were actually like. It is an interpretive record, featuring not only dates and names but also the stories behind the statistics. Each entry is accompanied by credits and cast lists, scorecards summarizing overall critical reception for each show, a summary of each show's financial performance, and copies of the illustrative program covers and title pages. Appendices provide a roundup of the season's major awards, memorable performances of the year, obituaries, long run leaders, shows still running from prior seasons, scheduled shows that never reached Broadway, and a comprehensive index. Steven Suskin has provided a unique and detailed record of the season's memorable moments and high points (and low points as well). Written from an insider's perspective, the book is knowledgeable, intriguing, provocative, and entertaining. Broadway Yearbook brings the shows of the 2000-2001 season back for an encore.

Description : Vita Kirk is a travel writer who has never left her hometown. In fact, she rarely leaves her house. Due to deep wounds and bitter losses, Vita has chosen isolation over vulnerability. But when she stumbles across an antique chest in a hole-in-the-wall boutique, she discovers a puzzling link to her past and her physical surroundings mysteriously begin to change. Inscribed in the treasure chest are the words, "Love is the key that unlocks every portal." The power of these words prove to unlock a part of Vita she thought had died years ago. "Stories like this go by many different names-fantasy, time-shift, magical realism. Some are overtly Christian or religious in nature, others are not. But from a spiritual perspective, the common thread in all these works is the redeeming, transforming power of God's grace not only to alter the future but to change our understanding of the past."--Penelope Stokes

Description : Essays in centennial celebration of William Faulkner and his achievement With essays and commentaries by Andre Bleikasten, Joseph Blotner, Larry Brown, Thadious M. Davis, Susan V. Donaldson, Doreen Fowler, The Reverend Duncan M. Gray, Jr., Minrose C. Gwin, Robert W. Hamblin, W. Kenneth Holditch, Lothar Honnighausen, Richard Howorth, John T. Irwin, Donald M. Kartiganer, Robert C. Khayat, Arthur F. Kinney, Thomas L. McHaney, John T. Matthews, Michael Millgate, David Minter, Richard C. Moreland, Gail Mortimer, Albert Murray, Noel Polk, Carolyn Porter, Hans H. Skei, Judith L. Sensibar, Warwick Wadlington, Philip M. Weinstein, Judith Bryant Wittenberg, and Karl F. Zender William Faulkner was born September 25, 1897. In honor of his centenary the Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference of 1997 brought together twenty-five of the most important Faulkner scholars to examine the achievement of this writer generally regarded as the finest American novelist of the twentieth century. The panel discussions and essays that make up "Faulkner at 100: Retrospect and Prospect" provide a comprehensive account of the man and his work, including discussions of his life, the shape of his career, and his place in American literature, as well as fresh readings of such novels as The "Sound and the Fury," "Sanctuary," "Absalom, Absalom ," "If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem," and "Go Down, Moses." Spanning the full range of critical approaches, the essays address such issues as Faulkner's use of African American dialect as a form of both appropriation and repudiation, his frequent emphasis on the strength of heterosexual desire over actual possession, the significance of his incessant role-playing, and the surprising scope of his reading. Of special interest are the views of Albert Murray, the African American novelist and cultural critic. He tells of reading Faulkner in the 1930s while a student at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. What emerges from this commemorative volume is a plural Faulkner, a writer of different value and meaning to different readers, a writer still challenging readers to accommodate their highly varied approaches to what Andre Bleikasten calls Faulkner's abiding "singularity." At the University of Mississippi Donald M. Kartiganer fills the William Howry Chair in Faulkner Studies in the department of English and Ann J. Abadie is associate director of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.

The odd, rambling letters his father sent home before he died. The jovial mother who started dating too soon after his father' s death. A boy who appeared one night when George was lonely, then told him secrets he didn' t want to know. How no one believed this new friend was real and that he was responsible for the bad things that were happening. Terrified by all that he has forgotten, George struggles to remember what really happened in the months following his father' s death. Were his ominous visions and erratic behavior the product of a grief-stricken child' s overactive imagination (a perfectly natural reaction to the trauma of loss, as his mother insisted)? Or were his father' s colleagues, who blamed a darker, more malevolent force, right to look to the supernatural as a means to end George' s suffering? Twenty years later, George still does not know. But when a mysterious murder is revealed, remembering the past becomes the only way George can protect himself- and his young family. A psychological thriller in the tradition of Donna Tartt' s "The Secret History"- with shades of "The Exorcist"- the smart and suspenseful"A Good and Happy Child" leaves you questioning the things you remember and frightened of the things you' ve forgotten.

Cancer Biology

Product : Cancer Biology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A thorough yet concise account of cancer biology, this book emphasizes the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the transformation of normal into malignant cells, the invasiveness of cancer cells into host tissues, and the metastatic spread of cancer cells in the host organism. It also defines the fundamental pathophysiological changes that occur in tumor tissue and in the host animal or patient. The approach throughout the book is to discuss the historical development of a field, citing the key experimental advances to the present day, and to evaluate the current evidence that best supports or rules out concepts of the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating cancer cell behavior. For all the areas of fundamental cancer research, an effort has been made to relate basic research findings to the clinical disease states. The book is well illustrated with schematic diagrams and actual research data to demonstrate points made in the text, and there is an extensive, up-to-date bibliography. The Third Edition includes completely new chapters on genetic alterations in cancer cells, tumor suppresser genes, transcriptional regulation, growth factors and signal transduction mechanisms, cell cycle regulation and apoptosis, gene-targeted therapy for cancer, and cancer prevention. All other chapters have been thoroughly updated.

Why Your World Is about to Get a Whole Lot Smaller

Product : Why Your World Is about to Get a Whole Lot Smaller
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What do subprime mortgages, Atlantic salmon dinners, SUVs and globalization have in common? They all depend on cheap oil. And in a world of dwindling oil supplies and steadily mounting demand around the world, there is no such thing as cheap oil. Oil might be less expensive in the middle of a recession, but it will never be cheap again. Take away cheap oil, and the global economy is getting the shock of its life. From the ageing oilfields of Saudi Arabia and the United States to the Canadian tar sands, from the shopping malls of Dubai to the shuttered auto plants of North America and Europe, from the made-in-China products on the shelves of the Wal-Mart down the road to the collapse of Wall Street giants, everything is connected to the price of oil Interest rates, carbon trading, inflation, farmers' markets and the wave of trade protectionism washing up all over the world in the wake of various economic stimulus and bailout packages - they all hinge on the new realities of a world where demand for oil eventually outstrips supply. According to maverick economist Jeff Rubin, there will be no energy bailout. The global economy has suffered oil crises in the past, but this time around the rules have changed. And that means the future is not going to be a continuation of the past. For generations we have built wealth by burning more and more oil. Our cars, our homes, our whole world has been getting bigger in the cheap-oil era. Now it is about to get smaller. There will be winners as well as losers as the age of globalization comes to an end. The auto industry will never recover from this oil-induced recession, but other manufacturers will be opening up mothballed factories. Distance will soon cost money, and so will burning carbon - both will bring long-lost jobs back home. We may not see the kind of economic growth that globalization has brought, but local economies will be revitalized, as will our cities and neighborhoods. Whether we like it or not, our world is about to get a whole lot smaller.

Dog Tales

Product : Dog Tales
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Playful vignettes capture the hilarious antics of five spirited and individual dogs as they interact with each other and the children who care for them. Whether rolling in mud, being chased by a cat, or serenading the moon, these animals are in a constant flurry of activity. Each double page spread includes a brief rhyming description of typical canine activity, with all the ways a dog can be "dirty and smelly," "curious and clumsy," or "pleased as can be."

Any Small Thing Can Save You

Product : Any Small Thing Can Save You
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Medieval bestiaries were instructional works gathered from the fables and tales told by travelers. They described beasts and fish and fowl that few had ever seen. For the characters in Christina Adam's Any Small Thing Can Save You, each animal that passes through their world reflects a measured truth about love -- between a husband and wife, a child and a parent, a brother and sister, at a moment of danger or discovery. Like the richest classical paintings, the entries in this engaging bestiary treat those unexpected moments when we are suddenly awakened from our daily routines, surprised and restored by the beauty of the natural world and our capacity for love within it. Any Small Thing Can Save You casts a wise eye on the kinds of simple intimacies we all long for, and on the truest opportunities for real salvation. Artfully designed, Any Small Thing Can Save You is truly a gift.
