The Disenchantment of the Orient: Expertise in Arab Affairs and the Israeli State

Product : The Disenchantment of the Orient: Expertise in Arab Affairs and the Israeli State
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this historical study, Gil Eyal argues that before the formation of Israel, Jewish experts participated in constructing the Orient as both a metaphor for the rejuvenation of the Jewish nation, and an enchanted space populated by hybrid figures that mixed Jewish and Arab elements. But following the creation of the state, these experts took up a new role: creating boundaries (both external and internal) between Jews and Arabs, purifying the hybrids that inevitably exist on the margins of boundaries. The enchanted space of the Orient was destroyed, and its place was taken by expert discourses that reinforce the cultural separation between Jews and Arabs.

Plants and Microclimate: A Quantitative Approach to Environmental Plant Physiology

Product : Plants and Microclimate: A Quantitative Approach to Environmental Plant Physiology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book attempts to provide a soundly based introduction to those features of the atmospheric environment of particular relevance to plants; it also describes the physical and physiological principles required for understanding how these factors affect plants. The underlying biophysics and biochemistry are explained in the context of plants growing in their natural environment. For example, gas exchange and diffusion are considered in relation to the control both of evaporation from vegetation and of photosynthesis and productivity, while energy exchanges are examined in relation to plant temperature regulation. Throughout the text a quantitative approach is adopted and the use of mathematical models is described with some examples. Physiological and ecological aspects of adaptation to different natural environments, including mechanisms of drought tolerance, are considered, as are possible ways in which this information can be used for improving crop plants for selective breeding. Practical aspects of important measurement techniques are discussed. There is a comprehensive reference list giving an introduction to recent literature, together with appendixes listing useful physical qualities. The presentation adopted is designed to emphasize the close relationship among the biophysical, physiological, and ecological aspects of the adaptation of higher plants to their aerial environment. This second edition has been fully updated and includes information on novel techniques such as chlorophyll-a fluorescence and carbon isotope discrimination, which can be applied to plants in the field, as well as coverage of topics of current concern such as global warming and atmospheric pollution.

Chernobyl - What Have We Learned?: The Successes and Failures to Mitigate Water Contamination Over 20 Years

Product : Chernobyl - What Have We Learned?: The Successes and Failures to Mitigate Water Contamination Over 20 Years
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Twenty million people have been exposed to Chernobyl radionuclides through the Dnieper River aquatic pathways. This book presents a 20-year historical overview and comprehensive study results of the aquatic environment affected by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. During this time, many water quality management practices and countermeasures were enacted. The book presents in-depth analyses of these water remediation actions, using current science and mathematical modeling, and discusses why some were successful, but many others failed. The chapter entitled Where Do We Go From Here? incorporates a comprehensive discussion of the planned New Safe Confinement (NSC) structure to cover the Chernobyl plant. The book closes with a summary and conclusions drawn from these analyses, making it a valuable reference tool for the future. This book will be of interest to engineers, scientists, decision-makers, and those involved in radiation protection and radioecology, environmental protection and risk assessment, water remediation and mitigation measures, and radioactive waste disposal. In addition, the detailed, almost day-to-day, emergency responses to the Chernobyl accident described in this book will also be useful to people developing emergency and long-term responses to accidental or intentional (by terrorists) releases of radionuclides, toxic chemicals and biological agents.

Constructing 21st Century U.S. Foreign Policy: Identity, Ideology, and America's World Role in a New Era

Product : Constructing 21st Century U.S. Foreign Policy: Identity, Ideology, and America's World Role in a New Era
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the years since the 9/11 attacks, socially constructed understandings of the identity of the United States and its friends and enemies in the world have played a critical role in determining the course of U.S. foreign policy. "Constructing Twenty-First Century U.S. Foreign Policy" argues that American foreign relations under the Bush administration were driven by an ideological agenda derived from a particular interpretation of long-standing ideas about national identity. Drawing on constructivist and social-psychological IR theory, it suggests that these ideas led directly to the administration's choice to invade Iraq, its misunderstanding the kind of war the United States would face there, and its failure to quickly establish a stable democratic government following the invasion.

An insightful foreword by artist and curator Ryan Rice, a Mohawk from the Kahnawake First Nation in Quebec, and Littlechild's reflections on each piece build a broad understanding of Littlechild's work, his life and his views on the role of art within all cultures.

Late Shakespeare: A New World of Words

Product : Late Shakespeare: A New World of Words
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Palfrey presents a new vision of character, metaphor, and politics in late Shakespeare. Closely analyzing Shakespeare's use of language and genre, he shows how the plays revamp theatrical decorums. The plays are not courtly, sober, and escapist, as their reputation suggests; rather, they are peculiarly sensitive to the turbulent, unfinished quality of Shakespeare's historical moment. In both court and wilderness, Shakespeare analyzes the violence of authority, the tensions in language, and the origin and prospects of both. Palfrey argues against a conventional sense of the plays' movement towards divinely sanctioned closure; mischief, irony, polysemy remain; romance's political problems are competitive, multiple, and tumescently unpredictable.

Description : By The Acclaimed Author Of "Like This," A Finalist For The Giller Prize Leo McKay Jr.'s bestselling novel is set in a small Nova Scotia town, where a family is changed forever after a devastating mining accident claims the lives of twenty-six men. As the story shifts back and forth in time and between characters, we meet the men and women of the Burrows family: brothers Ziv and Arvel, drawn to the mine for different reasons; their father, a former union organizer; Ziv's ex-girlfriend, now living in Japan; and Arvel's wife, who hopes for a better life for herself in the city. In the aftermath of the explosion, and as the investigation into its causes unfolds, the members of the Burrows family are forced to confront each other - and themselves - bringing the novel to its moving and redemptive conclusion. Written in spare, hard-hitting prose, and inspired in part by the Westray mining disaster, "Twenty-Six" is a novel of universal human struggle and understanding that evokes in all its drama and pathos a community transformed by tragedy.

Butrinti Helenistik Dhe Romak/Hellenistic and Roman Butrint

Product : Butrinti Helenistik Dhe Romak/Hellenistic and Roman Butrint
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Hellenistic city of Butrint, with its flourishing sanctuary of Asclepius, was transformed when it was made a Roman colony, first by Caesar then Augustus. Being able to deploy its heroic ancestry linked to Aeneas and Troy, the city articulated its special relationship with the imperial family in fine portrait dedications and drew inspiration from Augustus' own city of Nicopolis. Drawing on the latest archaeological research from Butrint, this richly illustrated book presents a new understanding of the making and development of the ancient Epirote city - from colonial provisions, to public benefactions, to spacious villas and townhouses - and discusses the impact of patronage bestowed on it by the emperor and elite families in Rome.

Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering

Product : Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering presents a systematic and pragmatic approach to building quality into' software systems. Systems must exhibit software quality attributes, such as accuracy, performance, security and modifiability. However, such non-functional requirements (NFRs) are difficult to address in many projects, even though there are many techniques to meet functional requirements in order to provide desired functionality. This is particularly true since the NFRs for each system typically interact with each other, have a broad impact on the system and may be subjective. To enable developers to systematically deal with a system's diverse NFRs, this book presents the NFR Framework. Structured graphical facilities are offered for stating NFRs and managing them by refining and inter-relating NFRs, justifying decisions, and determining their impact. Since NFRs might not be absolutely achieved, they may simply be satisfied sufficiently (satisficed'). To reflect this, NFRs are represented as softgoals', whose interdependencies, such as tradeoffs and synergy, are captured in graphs. The impact of decisions is qualitatively propagated through the graph to determine how well a chosen target system satisfices its NFRs. Throughout development, developers direct the process, using their expertise while being aided by catalogues of knowledge about NFRs, development techniques and tradeoffs, which can all be explored, reused and customized. Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering demonstrates the applicability of the NFR Framework to a variety of NFRs, domains, system characteristics and application areas. This will help readers apply the Framework to NFRs anddomains of particular interest to them. Detailed treatments of particular NFRs - accuracy, security and performance requirements - along with treatments of NFRs for information systems are presented as specializations of the NFR Framework. Case studies of NFRs for a variety of information systems include credit card and administrative systems. The use of the Framework for particular application areas is illustrated for software architecture as well as enterprise modelling. Feedback from domain experts in industry and government provides an initial evaluation of the Framework and some case studies. Drawing on research results from several theses and refereed papers, this book's presentation, terminology and graphical notation have been integrated and illustrated with many figures. Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering is an excellent resource for software engineering practitioners, researchers and students.

A Century of Welsh Myth in Children's Literature

Product : A Century of Welsh Myth in Children's Literature
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Myth, legend, and folklore have been entrenched in children's literature for several centuries and continue to be popular. Some of the most ancient traditional tales still extant come from the Celtic cultures of France and the British Isles, whose languages are among the oldest in Europe. Among these tales are four native Welsh legends collectively known as the Mabinogi, which were first translated into English in 1845 by Lady Charlotte Guest. Numerous children's books have been based on the Mabinogi since then, and many have received awards and critical acclaim. Because these books are written for children, they are not necessarily faithful retellings of the original tales. Instead, authors have had to select certain elements to include and others to exclude. This book examines how authors of children's fantasy literature from the 19th century to the present have adapted Welsh myth to meet the perceived needs of their young audience. The volume begins with a summary of the four principle tales of the Mabinogi: Pwyll Prince of Dyfed, Branwen Daughter of Llyr, Manawydan Son of Llyr, and Math Son of Mathonwy. Books based on the Mabinogi generally fall into two categories: retellings of the myths, and original works of fantasy partially inspired by the Welsh tales. Beginning with Sidney Lanier's The Boy's Mabinogion, the first part of this book examines versions of the myths published for children between 1881 and 1988. The second part discusses imaginative literature that borrows elements from the Mabinogi, including Alan Garner's The Owl Service, which won a Carnegie medal, and Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain, the final volume of which received the ALA Newbery Award foroutstanding children's book.

Trollope and Comic Pleasure Trollope and Comic Pleasure Trollope and Comic Pleasure

Product : Trollope and Comic Pleasure Trollope and Comic Pleasure Trollope and Comic Pleasure
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Challenging the sentimentalized and moralized view of comedy that prevails in modern criticism, Christopher Herbert outlines a theory of comedy as a mode whose dominant motive and function is the glorification of pleasure. Using this model, he presents a detailed study of Anthony Trollope that sharply contradicts the persistent image of this novelist as a conventional writer and complacent spokesman for middle-class pieties. The comic mode as Herbert describes it was antagonistic to the repressive moral ethos widely prevalent in Victorian England. Herbert shows how Trollope, under a mask of self-proclaimed conventionality, employed this mode in a steady, sometimes scandalous critique of the Victorian subversion of pleasure. Drawing on Trollope's unpublished notes on seventeenth-century drama and bringing to light many instances in the novels of direct borrowings from old plays, Herbert demonstrates the inventiveness and subtlety of Trollope's deployment of comic materials. Thematically organized around such subjects as Trollope's investigations of sex, his formal structures, and his principles of "realism," Herbert's study includes detailed readings of two of the nineteenth century's most ambitious exercises in comedy: "The Way We Live Now" and Trollope's neglected masterpiece, "Ayala's Angel." Of primary importance for readers of Trollope and students of comedy, Herbert's study will also prove valuable to those interested more generally in Victorian and modern fiction and the cultural history of the Victorian age.

Description : No Canadian city has been exposed, cinematically speaking, more often than Toronto. In the century since cinema began, countless hundreds of kilometres of film have recorded the growth and dramatic development of one of North America's most dynamic urban environments. Today, more film is shot in Canada's largest city than almost anywhere on the continent outside of Los Angeles and New York. This is a book about Toronto's motion picture history--not a history of the city or its industry but of the city as it has appeared on screen: Toronto as a moving image, from the first documentary films of an apocalyptic conflagration of the city's downtown core to the high-stepping, multicultural musical exuberance of "Bollywood/ Hollywood. And, just like the real city, the reel city of Toronto is a place of fascinating complexity, rich contradiction, and radical transformation. You can fly there--as in "I've Heard the Mermaids Singing--but you can also "Crash.Toronto on Film is a fascinating account of a city screened. What kind of city is Toronto the Movie? How has the city changed, and what does this reveal of a place's dreams, fears, and hopes? And what relationship does the real place have to its motion picture ideal?

Product : Psychoanalysis and Black Novels: Desire and the Protocols of Race
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although psychoanalytic theory is one of the most important and influential tools in contemporary literary criticism, to date it has had very little impact on the study of African-American literature and culture. Now, Claudia Tate argues that psycholanalytic paradigms can produce rich readings of African-American desire, alienation, and subjectivity. Tate summarizes the work of such figures as Freud and Lacan, with references to their contemporary literary proponents, and examines a series of texts by Emma Kelly, W.E.B. Du Bois, Richard Wright, Zora Neale Hurston, and Nella Larsen. This provocative new book will serve as an introduction to psychoanalytic theory and its application for African-American literature and culture. Tate strikes unchartered territory, and her work will be of great interest to scholars and students in African-American studies.

Margins of Conflict: The Echr and Transitions to and from Armed Conflict

Product : Margins of Conflict: The Echr and Transitions to and from Armed Conflict
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The European Convention on Human Rights was drafted in the wake of World War II. However, the dark shadows of that war have never fully receded from Europe. Armed conflicts have resurged time and again, from Northern Ireland to Cyprus and Turkey, and from the former Yugoslavia to the Caucasus. This book focuses on the margins of conflict - human rights aspects of transitions from peace to armed conflict and vice versa. First, it explores what limits human rights put on European societies which are on the brink of armed conflict. Second, it surveys the consequences of human rights violations committed during the armed conflict by looking at the aftermath of war. The book offers stimulating thought on a broad range of materials, especially procedural issues, such as the territorial scope of the Convention, states of emergency, freedom of expression and conflict escalation, obligations relating to enforced disappearances, interim measures, and pilot judgments. Taken together, they reflect both the potential and limitations of human rights in the run-up to conflicts, as well as their aftermath.

British Television: A Reader

Product : British Television: A Reader
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : OXFORD TELEVISION STUDIES General Editors: Charlotte Brunsdon and John Caughie Oxford Television Studies offers international authors--both established and emerging--an opportunity to reflect on particular problems of history, theory, and criticism which are specific to television and which are central to its critical understanding. The perspective of the series will be international, while respecting the peculiarities of the national; it will be historical, without proposing simple histories; and it will be grounded in the analysis of programs and genres. The series is intended to be foundational without being introductory or routine, facilitating clearly focused critical reflection and engaging a range of debates, topics, and approaches which will offer a basis for the development of television studies. This book attempts to give a broad overview of British television by examining both the institutional framework and the programs that it has produced. A range of reprinted writings from the work of acknowledged experts is supplemented by specially commissioned essays on such key topics as sport and British television in the global context. It will be a key text for all students taking courses on British television and broadcasting.

Description : Nice Boy is as fast-paced and intoxicating as the drugs that dominate the lives of its characters. Excitement and unexpected complications enter Gregory's life as he begins to move away from his stable working-class neighborhood in Queens and into the hazardous underbelly of New York street life. Through a series of savage and humorous vignettes, Veltri creates the unforgettable pageant of Gregory's large Italian-American family, his friends, addicts, hustlers, sadistic cops, and the denizens of rehab. This is not the story of a young drug addict trying to kick heroin, but is an incantatory tale about ordinary people in the urban world, some who suffer and die and some who survive.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cambridge University is famed for the resourcefulness and innovation of its students. However, not all the undergraduates have devoted their talents to academia; instead they spent their time devising ingenious and hilarious pranks to play on the unsuspecting dons. This fascinating volume recalls some of the greatest stunts and practical jokes in the university's history, including; the story of how a group of students disguised themselves as Abyssinian dignitaries and duped the Royal Navy into allowing them to inspect HMS Dreadnought, how another group fooled the art world with their Post-Impressionist Exhibition, and of course the most famous prank of all--the Austin Seven on the roof of Senate House. This enthralling work will amaze and entertain in equal measure--and may well prove a source of inspiration for current students wishing to enliven their undergraduate days.

Brian Friel, Ireland, and the North

Product : Brian Friel, Ireland, and the North
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After nearly five decades as one of Ireland's most celebrated playwrights, Brian Friel has been the subject of ten books and dozens of articles. This study expands Friel criticism into a sizeable body of material and into a fresher interpretative direction. Along with considering Friel's more recent plays, the book analyzes his interviews and essays to chart the author's ideological evolution throughout a career of more than forty years. Moreover, a chapter is devoted to his often ignored articles for The Irish Press (1962-1963), a series that reveals unsuspected insights into Friel's disposition towards the Irish Republic. Refining our understanding of Friel's relationship to Republicanism is central to the argument; rather than assuming that the author embraces nationalist ideology, the book relocates the conceptual concerns of his work away from Dublin and to 'The North', this bridge between Ireland and the British province of Northern Ireland.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A sort of "Fruits" of China's best dressed kids, this volume defines the new Chinese cool through the eyes of its hippest generation, in 300 pages of photos and illustrations from the ultracool Beijing-based magazine "+0086." The first generation to enjoy the economic accelerations--the foremost of the so-called "Tiger Economies"--of the past ten years, China's youth culture is media-savvy and globalized, their eyes beaming in the glow of perhaps becoming the next Internet It Girl or Cory Kennedy. These kids may watch "Skins" and "Gossip Girl," but, as the book demonstrates, they aren't blindly miming some bland digest of global pop culture, rather, they are developing a new style that is specific to contemporary China, which is taking root by itself. This publication marks the beginning of a documentary work in progress, as "+0086" continues to report on the situation from the streets of Beijing. Though this book can't tell the future, it does predict that Chinese youth will just keep getting cooler.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The book contains a practical approach and real actions that can transform the credibility and alignment of IT to the business." --Myron Hrycyk, CIO, NYK Logistics UK & Eire "A significant addition to the Enterprise Architect's bookshelf." --Rupert Brown, Principal Architect, Merrill Lynch Global Business Technology EMEA Many IT deployments fall short of delivering value to the businesses that pay for them. On top of this, the combined forces of rapid business change and technology innovation frequently outpace the ability of IT organisations to make sense of their implications. With business activity and IT now so intimately intertwined, organizations urgently need a framework which allows them to align IT capabilities with business strategies and priorities in a way that is sustainable. A team of IT-expert authors with more than 80 years' combined experience have interviewed dozens of CIOs, IT directors and other senior technical and business decision makes to find out what works and what doesn't. The result is a handbook for organizations of all sizes that want to improve the value of their IT investments, thus enabling their IT capabilities to play a more pivotal business role. Written in plain English that does not descend into technical detail, The Technology Garden provides practical advice for organizations looking to achieve sustainable IT-business alignment. To do so, it defines: * Six key principles - a distillation of best practice that readers can apply directly to the domain of IT-business alignment * A framework for their application - a pragmatic roadmap for the application of the principles * Adoption guidelines - a set of self-assessment checklists that readers can use to understand where they are on the IT-business alignment roadmap and how to progress. With groundbreaking research and proven approaches, this blueprint enables readers to understand what is at the heart of IT-business alignment. Combining IT research, analysis and real-world insight, The Technology Garden is the ultimate no-nonsense guide.

New York Sluggers: The First 75 Years

Product : New York Sluggers: The First 75 Years
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : New York City was the original hotbed of baseball, so it is not surprising that fans in the five boroughs are very knowledgeable about the game. It did not take long after baseball was established in the city in the late 1850s for heavy hitters to rise in popularity. New York has continued to set the standard. When thinking about hitting, or better yet, smashing or crushing a baseball, the first team to come to mind is always the New York Yankees. Slugging was actually invented by the Yanks and was most prominently demonstrated by Babe Ruth. When Lou Gehrig joined the team in 1923, a one-two punch was established that set a standard seldom equaled in major-league history. Meanwhile, across the East River, the Giants manufactured lots of hitting, and the New York Nationals rattled the walls in the Polo Grounds. This book is a pictorial story of the sluggers that made history in New York, in both the American and National Leagues.

Product : Romero's Legacy: The Call to Peace and Justice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Pilar Hogan Closkey and John Hogan have brought together the annual Archbishop Oscar Romero Lectures (2001-2007) to consider the life and death of Archbishop Romero and the daily struggles of the poor in our world, especially in the city of Camden, New Jersey-one of America's poorest cities. Romero's 'dangerous memory' provides the background, while urban poverty and the option for the poor are the foreground. Romero's commitment to the poor compels us to look at ourselves, and the authors of each chapter remind us of Romero's dangerous memory and his undying hope in the promised future. Taken as a whole, the book reminds us of the tough questions behind the real meaning of the 'option for the poor.' Can we as a faith community and institution move beyond high-sounding slogans and really opt for the poor? What are the costs? What are the risks? Especially in these difficult times of war, terrorism, and scandal, can we in the Church rebuild trust and be a sign of a future of justice and peace announced by Jesus?

Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse: Education Manual for Medical Professionals [With Video Included]

Product : Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse: Education Manual for Medical Professionals [With Video Included]
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Children who have been sexually abused can be very challenging patients. In addition to medical examination and treatment, their needs include emotional, psychological, social, and legal support. Because every child suspected of having been sexually abused should have access to a skilled medical provider, this workbook and its accompanying videotape are designed to offer a learning experience for medical professionals (particularly physicians and nurse practitioners) who are beginning to work in the area of child sexual abuse. The manual is divided into four sections: Decision Points in the Evaluation of Child Sexual Abuse The Medical History for Child Sexual Abuse The Medical Examination for Child Sexual Abuse Medical-Legal Issues in Child Sexual AbuseBased on clinical cases, each section of the text sets out learner objectives, presents cases, asks specific study questions, and then provides answers and discussion. Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse can be used as a quick home-based self-study training program and as a continuing reference, as well as in residency training for pediatric, obstetric/gynecology, family practice, or emergency medicine, and in postresidency child abuse fellowship training. Botash recognizes that the role of skilled medical providers goes beyond examining children and referring them to multiple services. It also involves talking to the children, working with their families, and coordinating the efforts of various community and private services. In addition, medical providers must be advocates for the children, working with human service agencies and the legal system, as well as teachers who help educate families and other service providers. This manual was written to help medical providers improve their skills in all these areas.

The answer will depend on the visual acuity of your heart. The adventure you find may not be the adventure you seek; it wasn't for Luisa Adams in Woven of Water. And yet - like a water lily rising from the muddy bottom of the lake - for you as for her, whatever life brings can blossom forth into the splendor of grateful living."

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Fred Taylor, a veteran of unspecified clandestine services that have caused him to spend hard times in Southeast Asia, finds himself at loose ends in Boston. A late-night chance encounter in the city's Beacon Hill area throws his lot in with eccentric art collector Clayton Reed. Reed has been tricked by a young man as unscrupulous as he is ignorant into examining and considering for purchase a collection of paintings whose presence in the U.S. seems, at best, informal. Fred, sensing Reed's naivetAA(c) in matters of personal security, volunteers to guarantee that security at the same time as Reed's acumen as a connoisseur astounds Fred. How could Reed just walk away from the situation with what he later gloatingly describes as "a prize worth more than the gross domestic product of Bulgaria." What Reed has purchased appears to be a painting by one of the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance. But is it what it seems Can The Madonna of the Apes be a forgery How did it come to be, so quietly, in Boston These questions propel Reed and Fred into an increasingly murderous tangle, guided only by the assurances of a sequence of art dealers who lie as easily as they withhold the truth about the painting, its true nature, and its history. Nicholas Kilmer is the author of five previous Fred Taylor art mysteries.

Theatre Cafe: Plays One

Product : Theatre Cafe: Plays One
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Three exciting European plays from Theatre cafe, the European theatre project curated by Company of Angels. Swedish writer Jonas Hassen Khemiri's deeply subversive play "Invasion " is a tornado of words, images and ideas: this comic masterpiece deals with the lives of young immigrants in Stockhlom. Funny and irreverant, often deeply moving "Invasion " succeeds in tearing down the walls between 'us' amd 'them'. "" "This Child" is one of the most talked about plays in France in recent years. Joel Pommerat's play explores the feelings, from the noblest to the most shameful, that bind parents and children together. Lutz Hubner's hard-hitting play "Respect," about sexual attitudes, provocation and intercultural confusion, is based on the true story of an honour killing.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A smart, sexy, feisty, European religious history lecturer, Jena Van Rooykens, finds herself caught up in a roller coaster of a ride with the American academic system where the boundaries of education and commercialism are no longer recognised. The theft of the Christian relic - The Holy Blood of Bruges, allows an Okalahoma University to conduct authenticity testing and leads to the ultimate 'what if'. Cloning the DNA structure of 'The Holy Blood' is the logical next step, isn't it? God doesn't play dice, but is he playing Chess?

Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.

Product : Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For Jane Jones, being a vampire is nothing like you read about in books. In fact, it kind of sucks. She's not beautiful, she's not rich, and she doesn't "sparkle." She's just an average, slightly nerdy girl from an ordinary suburban family (who happens to be vampires.) Jane's from the wrong side of the tracks (not to mention stuck in the world's longest awkward phase), so she doesn't fit in with the cool vampire kids at school or with the humans kids. To top it all off, she's battling an overprotective mom, a clique of high school mean girls (the kind who really do have fangs), and the most embarrassing allergy in the history of the undead, she's blood intolerant. So no one's more surprised than Jane when for the first time in her life, things start to heat up (as much as they can for a walking corpse, anyway) with not one, but two boys. Eli's a geeky, but cute real-live boy in her history class, and Timothy is a beautiful, brooding bloodsucker, who might just hold the key to a possible "cure" for vampirism. Facing an eternity of high school pressure, fumbling first dates, or a mere lifetime together with Timothy, what's a 90-something year-old teen vampire to do? Fans of the "Vladmir Tod Chronicles, You are So Undead to Me, " and Jessica's "Guide to Dating on the Dark Side" will feast on this deliciously readable, smart, and fantastically funny debut. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

The End-Of-The-World Delusion: How Doomsayers Endanger Society

Product : The End-Of-The-World Delusion: How Doomsayers Endanger Society
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ""The End-of-the-World Delusion" is a well-written, thoroughly researched, and very readable book. Deering's lively narrative makes complex and complicated topics accessible to the average reader. He certainly pulled me into his book despite my cynical view of the topic. Deering offers the reader riveting histories of end-of-the world beliefs and covers an extraordinary array of ground in this well-researched book, discussing everything from the Mayan end-of-times predictions, Christian rapture beliefs, pandemics, economic doomsday scenarios, and other apocalyptic predictions." -Robert Watson, PhD, author/editor of thirty-four books, including "The Presidents' Wives" and "America's War on Terror" People from many different corners of civilization seem to be saying the same thing: the end is near. In The End-of-the-World Delusion, author Justin Deering explores such scenarios, discussing why they are not likely to occur or have any visible impact on this planet within our lifetime. Providing a thorough analysis, Deering chronicles the numerous instances of such predictions throughout history, examines frequent religious and cultural sources of these end-of-world claims, analyzes the sociological and psychological dynamics and dangers, and outlines other forms of end-times beliefs, ranging from religious to pop culture in nature. The End-of-the-World Delusion provides concrete information that helps evaluate these dubious assertions, relates how such beliefs have harmed individuals and society, and talks about why people are inclined to nurture such beliefs in the first place. Setting the record straight by detailing the history of failed doomsdays, Deering shows that nothing can be gained by worrying about the end of time, and that we must learn a lesson from the past, live in the present, and plan for the future.

Aidan Higgins: The Fragility of Form

Product : Aidan Higgins: The Fragility of Form
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Authors like Annie Proulx, John Banville, Derek Mahon, Dermot Healy, and Higgins himself, represented by a previously uncollected essay, offer a variety of critical and creative commentaries, while scholars such as Keith Hopper, Peter van de Kamp, George O'Brien, and Gerry Dukes contribute exciting new perspectives on all aspects of Higgins's writing, including his radio plays, his critical work, and the Harold Pinter film adaptation of Langrishe, Go Down. Langrishe too is revisited, while convincing cases are made for the major significance of later novels such as Bornholm Night-Ferry and Lions of the Grunewald, as well as Higgins's unorthodox trilogy of autobiographies. This collection confirms the enduring significance of Aidan Higgins as one of the major writers of our time, and also offers testament that Higgins's work is being rediscovered by a new generation of critics and writers.

Politics of Marxism: The Critical Debates

Product : Politics of Marxism: The Critical Debates
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Central to this volume is the collapse of the so-called Marxist regimes of Eastern Europe. This volume, written in the light of the apparent complete failure of the Marxian political project, aims to present, in an accessible way, a thematic synthesis of the critical debates. The emphasis is placed on Marxist politics in practice, looking at questions of class alliances, parliamentary forms of democracy, nationalism and the future of Marxism. Debates are set within their historical context; their significance for contemporary politics, both in Eastern Europe and the rest of the world, is evaluated and they are related to the problems found in Marx's original project.
