Without much effort at all, he can turn a school folk dance fiesta into a circus.

Data Mining for Scientific and Engineering Applications

Product : Data Mining for Scientific and Engineering Applications
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Advances in technology are making massive data sets common in many scientific disciplines, such as astronomy, medical imaging, bio-informatics, combinatorial chemistry, remote sensing, and physics. To find useful information in these data sets, scientists and engineers are turning to data mining techniques. This book is a collection of papers based on the first two in a series of workshops on mining scientific datasets. It illustrates the diversity of problems and application areas that can benefit from data mining, as well as the issues and challenges that differentiate scientific data mining from its commercial counterpart. While the focus of the book is on mining scientific data, the work is of broader interest as many of the techniques can be applied equally well to data arising in business and web applications. Audience: This work would be an excellent text for students and researchers who are familiar with the basic principles of data mining and want to learn more about the application of data mining to their problem in science or engineering.

Candles Burned in Chicago: A History of 53 Memorial Commemorations of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Product : Candles Burned in Chicago: A History of 53 Memorial Commemorations of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book tells the amazing story of 54 years of effort by a group of Jewish Chicagoans to commemorate the murder of 350,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. In 1944, when these Chicagoans learned of the murder and of the heroic resistance by the last Warsaw Ghetto residents, they determined that the events must be made known to all America so that they might never be forgotten. Except for the fact of past emigration from Europe, these Chicagoans would have been part of the resistance bands. But for their presence in America, they would have lost their lives in the Warsaw slaughter. They determined that they must do all within their power to mobilize the world to prevent a recurrence. So, for 54 years, they undertook to publicize the Warsaw events dramatically and to point out to society the lesson of the events, namely, that humanity must work unceasingly for a just world in which evil cannot triumph as it did. From 1944 to 1996, this group of Jewish Chicagoans and their friends mounted stirring national meetings, candlelight commemorations, dramatic presentations, and gifted discussions so that the heroism of the Warsaw Ghetto fighters and the tragedy of the victims might never be forgotten. This book tells the story of the annual meetings and their organization. The reader can only be deeply impressed that the thrust of these was not merely to rehearse the past lest it be forgotten, but also to look to the future. For 54 years, speakers at the Commemorations stressed the need for present and future action to build a society in which a Warsaw Ghetto slaughter could not take place. The major Commemoration, year after year required cooperation and organization, which were not always easy toachieve. Since the effort was open to everyone to support and participate, it attracted also its share of radicals and dissenters. If such individuals were also among the residents of the Warsaw Ghetto, why not in Chicago? Creative differences of opinion had to be ironed out with tact and firmness. They attracted the attention of the Chicago Police Department espionage unit, which describe some of the participants as Communist Party sympathizers or members. The Jewish Chicagoans who carried forward the Commemoration, effort had, in themselves, all the elements of heroism and tragedy of the Warsaw Ghetto. So, year after year, they resolutely continued their effort and achieved effectiveness and prestige for what they were doing. In part their effort was sustained by a pride in the bravery and resistance of the last units in the Ghetto. The reader of this book will note the continuing emphasis on youth. It was not enough that contemporaries of the Warsaw fighters remember what happened. They believed it was essential that their new generation know what occurred and forestall repetition. At the end of the 54 years, the story became well known. Although it is still necessary to retell the story, remind the world what happened, and impress the need to prevent a repetition

Encouraging Diversity: Crop Development and Conservation in Plant Genetic Resources

Product : Encouraging Diversity: Crop Development and Conservation in Plant Genetic Resources
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book presents around 80 briefly described cases which illuminate the accumulated experience in utilizing and managing crop genetic diversity in farmers' fields both in the South and the North. These experiences illustrate the conflict which has been thought to exist between crop conservation and development, and contribute to the understanding of the opportunities that are offered by new approaches and activities in this field. There are frequent similarities between problems in the South and the North, and the book presents the experiences and perspectives of farmers, genebanks, plant breeders, seed programs and NGOs involved in crop development and conservation. The authors analyze the experiences in the context of new approaches in local and global Plant Genetic Resource (PGR) management being tried by both the formal and informal sector.The last part of the book suggests guidelines for future development in PGR management. It discusses the implications of integrated and adaptive management approaches in PGR management, and the need to rethink the institutional organization required to bring about changes which can help farmers and professionals in PGR management to resist the pressures of a range of global forces.This book presents a very diverse and rich array of experiences and in effect proposes a synthesis of what have been taken to be conflicting views of conservation and development.

Breaking the Chains: A Catholic Memoir

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Raised in a Catholic family in the Pacific Northwest, author Robert Willis learned to obey two judges: his father, a county superior court judge, and God. He joined the Jesuits, hoping to please both. The 1960s revolution tested his unthinking obedience to authorities-paternal, religious, and political-as the immorality of the Vietnam War troubled his conscience and the Second Vatican Council challenged his position in the modern world. When his efforts to stop the war led him to Vietnam, he knew he had to break the chains that bound him to the past. Willis's path took him to the nascent human potential movement in California. Experiencing its healing power, he joined Carl Rogers and colleagues at the Center for Studies of the Person in La Jolla while simultaneously pursuing a doctorate in psychology at San Diego's United States International University. In his teaching and practice of psychotherapy, Willis emphasized the crucial importance of the healing relationship. In its depths, he felt the presence of the Spirit of God. In his personal life, together with a woman who touches his soul, he meets the God of love. The chains, at last, lie broken.

Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths

Product : Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The rise of authoritarian Hindu mass movements and political formations in India since the early 1980s raises fundamental questions about the resurgence of chauvinistic ethnic, religious and nationalist movements in the late modern period. This book examines the history and ideologies of Hindu nationalism and ]i]Hindutva]/i] from the end of the last century to the present, and critically evaluates the social and political philosophies and writings of its main thinkers.Hindu nationalism is based on the claim that it is an indigenous product of the primordial and authentic ethnic and religious traditions of India. The book argues instead that these claims are based on relatively recent ideas, frequently related to western influences during the colonial period. These influences include eighteenth and nineteenth century European Romantic and Enlightenment rationalist ideas preoccupied with archaic primordialism, evolution, organicism, vitalism and race. As well as considering the ideological impact of National Socialism and Fascism on Hindu nationalism in the 1930s, the book also looks at how Aryanism continues to be promoted in unexpected forms in contemporary India.Using a wide range of historical and contemporary sources, the author considers the consequences of Hindu nationalist resurgence in the light of contemporary debates about minorities, secular citizenship, ethics and modernity.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The only book that explores the vaccination issue from political, ethical, psychological, aesthetic, and spiritual perspectives. Using principles of general semantics to recognize propaganda, particularly medical propaganda, it points to the power of the media to create our reality. James suggests an unusual consciousness-raising plan of action to insure freedom of choice and non-harrassment of persons who choose to stay off the vaccine bandwagon. The author's controversial position is supported throughout the book by the scientific discoveries of researchers who have received little recognition in orthodox medical literature. This new, completely revised edition shows: how vaccinations damage the immune and nervous systems, the vaccine-drug-AIDS connection, how to become propaganda-proof, and how to develop new paradigms of health and preventive medicine.

A Woman's Place Is in the House: Campaigning for Congress in the Feminist Era

Product : A Woman's Place Is in the House: Campaigning for Congress in the Feminist Era
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this first comprehensive examination of women candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, Barbara Burrell argues that women are as successful at winning elections as men. Why, then, are there still so few women members of Congress? Compared to other democratically elected national parliaments, the U.S. Congress ranks very low in its proportion of women members. During the past decade, even though more and more women have participated in state and local governments, they have not made the same gains at the national level. "A Woman's Place Is in the House" examines the experiences of the women who have run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1968 through 1992 and compares their presence and performance with that of male candidates. The longitudinal study examines both general and primary elections and refutes many myths associated with women candidates including their ability to raise money and garner support from both interest groups and political parties. According to Burrell, election year 1992 was correctly dubbed the "Year of the Woman" in American politics--not so much because women overcame perceived barriers to being elected but because for the first time a significant number of women chose to run in primaries. Burrell's study examines the effects women are having on the congressional agenda and offers insight on how such issues as term limitations and campaign finance reform will impact on the election of women to Congress. Barbara C. Burrell is a researcher at the Wisconsin Survey Research Laboratory

Anoxic Zone

Product : Anoxic Zone
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Synopsis of anoxic zone by john g rees 2009 Towards the end of the first century of the second millennium, the true end of the Industrial age, a workingman with skills was rare. And so, being one was vital. Having the unfortunate opportunity to be alive at this time, when the infrastructure of the previous age was falling apart, operatives were much needed. Chosen for their aptitude, whether skilled in labor or in the sciences, these men were brought back to life again and again to become reuseables for Megacorp. Society at large never knew the making or means of this rekindling of life. Nor did the ones it was perpetrated on. At least that was the way it was supposed to be. Megacorp was what its name implied: a massive worldwide organization that owned almost everything and everyone. Its decisions were paramount and capitalistic. It did whatever it had to do to increase shareholder dividends. Whatever would make money. It made most of its profits from the seas, filled with errant shipwrecks from thousands of years and all that they held. Metal of all kinds were the real currency in this world. Most of it was underwater. Jake, a commercial diver and Johnny, a scientist, were regenerated as reuseables to serve this narcissistic, apathetic society. They have remained friends for over 100 years, through many lives and deaths, so to speak... A combination of human curiosity and inhuman nature conspire to have them discover just what they are. By finding out, they inadvertently release the evil that spawned them. Darkly charismatic, this evil befriends Jake and Johnny who are now fugitives from Megacorp for unleashing their dividend maker. In time, the two realize that his forged charisma belies a ruthless, pathological psychopath that has been alive for over a thousand years. Myth and reality coalesce as the two struggle to deal with what they have become, along with the legacy that comes with it. Their nightmare takes them from deep in the Pacific Ocean to the Black Sea. The darkest phantom of our subconscious surfaces to mete out his own brand of persecution to those betrayed him. Everything goes wild as the storm builds, reaching a fevered pitch. Not realizing the dissonant harmony that was happening, they release even more evil. The book comes to its tornado-like ending, leaving you, the reader, along with the guys, thrashed in the whirlwind.

Standing Next to History: An Agent's Life Inside the Secret Service

Product : Standing Next to History: An Agent's Life Inside the Secret Service
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Joseph Petro served for 23 years as a special agent in the United States Secret Service; eleven of them with presidents and vice presidents. For four of those years he stood by the side of Ronald Reagan. Following his career as a Navy Lieutenant, during which he patrolled the rivers and canals along the Vietnamese-Cambodian border, he worked his way up through the Secret Service to become one of the key men in charge of protecting the President. That journey through the Secret Service provides an individual look inside the most discreet law enforcement agency in the world, and a uniquely intimate account of the Reagan presidency. Engagingly, Joseph Petro tells "first hand" stories of: riding horses with the Reagans; eluding the press and sneaking the President and Mrs. Reagan out of the White House; rehearsing assassination attempts and working, then re-working every detail of the president's trips around the world; negotiating the president's protection with the KGB; diverting a 26 car presidential motorcade in downtown Tokyo; protecting Vice-President Dan Quayle at Rajiv Gandhi's funeral where he was surrounded by Yassir Arafat's heavily armed bodyguards; taking charge of the single largest protective effort in the history of the Secret Service-Pope John Paul II's 1987 visit to the United States; and being only one of three witnesses at the private meeting between President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that ushered in the end of the Cold War. Joseph Petro provides an original and fascinating perspective of the Secret Service, the inner workings of the White House and a little seen view of world leaders, as a man who stood next to history.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of the more successful innovations of the last six years in the area of U.S.-Japanese and U.S.-South Korean alliance management has been the establishment and use of the Trilateral Coordination and Oversight Group for developing common policies toward North Korea. This book examines how the TCOG process can and should be strengthened and expanded (or simply copied) to encourage trilateral coordination beyond that of North Korean policy and, by means of such coordination, to strengthen the two bilateral alliances. In this collaborative effort, U.S., Japanese, and South Korean scholars conducted dozens of interviews with past and current policymakers and identify crisis contingency planning and response as providing important opportunities to enhance trilateral cooperation. The book also includes a report of a simulated joint crisis management planning exercise.

Here are lively and witty accounts of exploring the outdoors with his father and with black playmates; making furniture; painting; pursuing new adventures and going places with children, grandchildren, and friends. He describes how he learned to share life with his wife, Rosalynn -- and how they both learned how to grant each other personal space -- and to compete with her on the tennis court, high mountains, trout streams, and ski slopes. These lifetime experiences can be an inspirational guide to anyone desiring to stretch mind and heart and to combine work and pleasure.

Description : This new edition traces the history and development of Blenheim Park from its prehistoric origins to its use as a royal hunting domain of the English medieval kings, to the gift by Queen Anne to John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough (victor of Blenheim). The subsequent development of Blenheim Park provides a microcosm of the main developments in English landscape gardening -first the formal parterres of Henry Wise around Vanbrugh's new palace, then the transformations wrought by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown in what is justly one of his most famous works, centred around the newly created Grand Lake. The scale and subtleties of this vision are further examined in the context of conserving and preserving a legacy and this edition has been updated to take account of recent research.

The car he steals belongs to the boss of the neighborhood's shadiest operations... and carries a nasty surprise in the trunk. His best friend and partner-in-crime, Colly, tends to fly off the handle at the slightest provocation... and now he's got a gun.

No Child Left Behind?: The Politics and Practice of School Accountability

Product : No Child Left Behind?: The Politics and Practice of School Accountability
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The 2002 No Child Left Behind Act is the most important legislation in American education since the 1960s. The law requires states to put into place a set of standards together with a comprehensive testing plan designed to ensure these standards are met. Students at schools that fail to meet those standards may leave for other schools, and schools not progressing adequately become subject to reorganization. The significance of the law lies less with federal dollar contributions than with the direction it gives to federal, state, and local school spending. It helps codify the movement toward common standards and school accountability. Yet NCLB will not transform American schools overnight. The first scholarly assessment of the new legislation, No Child Left Behind? breaks new ground in the ongoing debate over accountability. Contributors examine the laws origins, the political and social forces that gave it shape, the potential issues that will surface with its implementation, and finally, the laws likely consequences for American education.

Transitions in Context: Leaving Home, Independence and Adulthood

Product : Transitions in Context: Leaving Home, Independence and Adulthood
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ""Social scientists are gradually responding to the challenge of re-theorizing youth transitions in the face of social change, and this book makes an important contribution to the literature in this respect. It provides absorbing insights into intergenerational change and its effect on intergenerational relationships, and will be of interest to students of family studies as well as youth studies." Gill Jones, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Keele University" How do young people experience leaving home? What is the relationship between leaving home, independence and adulthood? How important are family, friends and other sources of support in young people's lives? This book addresses important aspects of youth transitions. It uses the experiences of leaving or planning to leave the parental home as an example of an increasingly complex transition, one which provides the opportunity to reflect upon the meanings of home, independence and adulthood. It explores cross-cultural differences, as well as the interrelationships between transitions to adulthood, the achievement of independence, and leaving home. The role of significant others, particularly parents, on young people's decisions is a key theme, as well as considering how young people's practices impact on others. The book places the processes of leaving the parental home in a wider perspective, theoretically and in terms of policy concerns. Throughout the text, different international contexts are used for comparison. Drawing on a broad range of disciplines including sociology, geography, social policy, youth studies and cultural studies, this is a key text for researchers, post-graduate students and final year undergraduates interested in issues related to the family, youth studies and comparative social sciences.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Burmese Days, by George Orwell - Akasha Classics, AkashaPublishing.Com - U Po Kyin, Sub-divisional Magistrate of Kyauktada, in Upper Burma, was sitting in his veranda. It was only half past eight, but the month was April, and there was a closeness in the air, a threat of the long, stifling midday hours. Occasional faint breaths of wind, seeming cool by contrast, stirred the newly drenched orchids that hung from the eaves. Beyond the orchids one could see the dusty, curved trunk of a palm tree, and then the blazing ultramarine sky. Up in the zenith, so high that it dazzled one to look at them, a few vultures circled without the quiver of a wing. Unblinking, rather like a great porcelain idol, U Po Kyin gazed out into the fierce sunlight. He was a man of fifty, so fat that for years he had not risen from his chair without help, and yet shapely and even beautiful in his grossness; for the Burmese do not sag and bulge like white men, but grow fat symmetrically, like fruits swelling. His face was vast, yellow and quite unwrin-kled, and his eyes were tawny. His feetsquat, high-arched feet with the toes all the same lengthwere bare, and so was his cropped head, and he wore one of those vivid Arakanese longyis with green and magenta checks which the Burmese wear on informal occasions. He was chewing betel from a lacquered box on the table, and thinking about his past life.

Mason here contends that the effect cannot be properly described in the terms used by philosophers, psychologists, or theologians: tragedy occurs on its own plane on which the characters in the plays are seen at once as agents and pasive sufferers in an action where the human and the divine come together in a unique way to produce the tragic act.

Description : Scientists from management and strategy, information systems, engineering and telecommunications have discussed a novel concept: Smart Business Networks. They see the future as a developing web of people and organizations, bound together in a dynamic and unpredictable way, creating smart outcomes from quickly (re-)configuring links between actors. The question is: What should be done to make the outcomes of such a network 'smart', that is, just a little better than that of your competitor? More agile, with less pain, with more return to all the members of the network, now and over time? The technical answer is to create a 'business operating system' that should run business processes on different organisational platforms. Business processes would become portable: The end-to-end management of processes running across many different organizations in many different forms would become possible. This book presents you the outcomes of an energizing and new direction in management science.

International Views on Disability Measures: Moving Toward Comparative Measurement

Product : International Views on Disability Measures: Moving Toward Comparative Measurement
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Disability policy has become an increasingly important issue in countries around the world. More and more, as populations are exposed to war and civil conflicts, natural disasters, environmental poisons along with the effects of normal aging, accidents and poverty, disability has become a growing public health and civil rights problem. In order to develop reasonable policy solutions, countries need accurate, reliable estimates of the size and make up of their disabled population. Comparisons of policy solutions cross-nationally require that the data that is used as the basis for the policy decisions is comparable. At the same time that the world has determined an important need for data on populations with disability, the data that is available is still haphazard and not comparable. The UN has begun to address this need with a publication, the "Guidelines and Principles for the Development of Disability Statistics in 2001," and through the authorization of the formation of the Washington Group, an informal, temporary organization in the mode of a City Group. As a voluntary organization of National Statistical Office representatives, the purpose of the Washington Group is to address selected problems in statistical methods associated with the measurement of disability internationally. The papers in this volume reflect a sampling of the work done to this point by the Washington Group to address this important public health problem. The collection describes the background of disability measurement as the work of the group started from an international perspective and identifies other work being done in this area. It also provides snapshots of the data that is currently available and inuse along with how the data is used in a variety of countries. Finally, a section on methodological issues identifies some insight as well as suggested solutions to key problems that will need to be addressed if the Group is to accomplish its task. *Volume includes papers that examine the statistical problems associated with the measurement of disability internationally *Looks at country specific issues as well as overarching methodologies *An important contribution to disability and public policy

Product : B2: 252-Edward Said
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume begins to show why the current period in humanistic studies could be known as "The Age of Edward Said." The collection brings together outstanding intellectuals from the wide variety of fields to which Edward Said, the most important humanist of his generation, has made contributions: literary criticism, postcolonial studies, musicology, Middle Eastern Studies, anthropology, and journalism. Featured is a new interview with Said, conducted by W. J. T. Mitchell, in which Said discusses the importance of the visual to his thinking, specifically the works of Goya and Caravaggio, which in turn made possible Said's valuable contributions to our understanding of photography and painting. Other contributions reflect on Said's influences on the American public sphere; the subtle personal politics that inform the relationship between music and emotion; Said's importance to a thinking about "race before racism" and the disappearance of the American; and jazz man Jim Merod reflects on Said's "sublime lyrical abstractions." Covering with insight the many debates Said so deftly entered and formed, the distinguished contributors to this volume reflect upon his oeuvre to create an atmosphere of thoughtfulness, questioning, and interactivity.

Communication Qualities: A Psychological Perspective

Product : Communication Qualities: A Psychological Perspective
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Every day, in many situations, we use expressions which seem only vaguely to provide us with information. The weather forecaster tells us that some showers are likely in Northern regions during the night, a statement which is vague with respect to number of showers, location, and time. Yet such messages are informative, and often it is not possible for the producer of the message to be more precise. A tutor tells his students that only a few students fail their exams outright. This does not give a precise incidence. Yet it might be equally misleading to do so. For example, to say that 12% failed outright last year says nothing about other years, while to say an average of 8% over the last five years says nothing about variability. We argue that a precise, numerical statement can be sometimes more misleading in reality than a vague statement. Many researchers in psychology have attempted to capture the meaning of quantities by relating them to scales of quantity. The book explores this idea in detail and shows with original studies how these expressions also serve to control attention and to convey information about the expectations held by those involved in the communication. The book works towards a psychological theory of the meaning of quantifiers and similarly vague terms. New links are drawn between formal theories of quantification and psychological experimentation.

Product : Client Workbook for Agoraphobia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : MAP-3 is a systematic cognitive-behavioral program, which uses behavioral self-monitoring to increase awareness of circumstances that trigger panic symptoms. Clients learn specific intervention skills, including how to slow down physiological reactivity through breathing retraining and muscle relaxation training; how to decatastrophise through actual prediction testing; and how to lessen fearfulness through exposure to feared sensations in safe settings. MAP-3 program revisions result from feedback from skilled clinicians who have used the MAP-II program as a clinical tool for treating anxiety, panic, and agoraphobia. Revisions reflect the most cutting-edge knowledge and empirical findings. The new MAP-3 program offers a deeper exploration of the origins of anxiety and panic and an explanation of how the physiology of breathing affects symptoms and treatment. MAP-3 includes recent findings on the integration of medication and treatment, particularly the enduring effect of the MAP-3 program, and has more explanations of the interrelationship of thoughts and feelings. The client workbook for treatment of agoraphobia has been significantly expanded with recent findings.

Industrial Application of Enzymes on Carbohydrate Based Materials

Product : Industrial Application of Enzymes on Carbohydrate Based Materials
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides an overall increase in awareness, understanding and implementation of the recent great advances in the production and application of industrail enzymes on carbohydrate materials. The field of industrial enzyme application has grown tremendously in the last ten years, because of the high specificity of enzymes to catalyze industrial processing reactions,the availablity of thousands of enzymes, and ,especially, the rapid growth of protein engineerign and genetically modified organismsto dramatically reduce production times and costs for new enzymes. Industrial enzymes also offer more environmentally friendly and scaleable industrial processes for the conversion of carbohydrate based materials into a diversity of value-added products, inculding the new 'biofuels'. The book focuses on carbohydrate materials as they are renewable, and the most abundant and relatively low cost organic materials in nature such as lignocellulosic waste biomass, especially compared to traditional petroleum and gas feedstocks of ever increasing costs. Multiple industries are purposely highlighted so that various viewpoints can be exchanged. The chapters are arranged into four particularly fast-growing areas: (1) biofuel and industrial chemicals, (2) food industry, (3) textile industry sector, and (4) basic research to underpin future advances. With contributing authors from industry, government, and academia, worldwide, the book provides an up-to-date review of this exciting and rapidly developing field.

Raw Life: Cameos of 1890s Justice from a Magistrate's Bench Book

Product : Raw Life: Cameos of 1890s Justice from a Magistrate's Bench Book
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Rare views of human lives in turmoil are detailed by recently recovered records of the trials conducted in the 1890s by Magistrate James Boyer in Bracebridge and central Muskoka. What become clear is just how "Raw Life" really was beneath the glitter of the so-called "Gay Nineties." While dispensing speedy justice, Boyer, who was also editor of "The Northern Advocate," the first newspaper in Ontario's northern districts, also kept a careful record in his hand-written "bench book" of all these cases. The bench book, found by his great-grandson, lawyer J. Patrick Boyer, forms the basis of "Raw Life." In publishing the human stories behind these cases for the first time, the two Boyers team up across the generations to show how, at the lower edges of Canadian society, how some things have not changed much over time--from early road rage to the plight of abused women, environmental contamination to punitive treatment of the poor. "Raw Life" provides human portraits of those involved--the justices of the peace, the constables, game wardens, and also the large cast of rioting loggers, illegal hunters, unpaid workers, delinquent boys, brawling drunks, quack doctors, and desperate thieves. The book describes the rough-hewn society in which they lived, and explains the all-important role justices of the peace had in providing speedy, ground-level justice for Canada's early communities. Preface by Edward L. Greenspan. Foreword by Ontario's former Attorney General and Chief Justice, R. Roy McMurtry.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Humans and animals live together on earth, but as we increasingly reshape ecosystems to accommodate larger populations, technology, and increased consumption, animals are greatly affected. The history of civilization shows that humans have used animals for food, clothing, transportation, making a living, and even companionship, as well as subjects for the arts, literature, and within religious beliefs. Renowned animal behaviorist Marc Bekoff and 300 experts from around the globe provide more than 350 essays that discuss such topics as animals and ecology; animals and global warming; animals as food; animals as pets; animals and diseases; animals in research and in education; animals providing assistance; and the influence of animals in art, religion and philosophy, literature, music, dance, and entertainment. Students and all those wanting a better understanding of the reciprocal connections and interdependence of organisms on the planet will benefit from this fascinating and instructive reference work. Bekoff and contributors ranging from scientists and researchers in other disciplines to teachers, writers, and artists along with those who work with animals in service, rescue, and training have provided engaging and thought-provoking entries ranging in length from 500 to more than 5,000 words. Each entry in the encyclopedia ends with recommended further resources, which may include books, articles, Web sites, and videos.

Issues in Cultural Tourism Studies

Product : Issues in Cultural Tourism Studies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Combining a rigorous and academic theoretical framework with practical case studies and real-life examples, initiatives and projects from both the developed and developing world, this wide-ranging yet detailed book examines the phenomenon of cultural tourism in its broadest sense. It explores many issues including, amongst others:
  • the development of cultural tourism and its impacts
  • sustainable cultural tourism policies
  • the role of cultural tourism in urban regeneration
  • the organizational framework of European cultural tourism.
In addition, individual chapters make reference to the problems of exclusion and discrimination. Drawing on post-modern perspectives, this informative text emphasizes the importance of popular cultural tourism, alternative or ethnic tourism, and that of working class heritage and culture. It focuses on the role cultural tourism plays in the globalization process and the impacts of global development on culture, traditions and identity, especially for regional, ethnic and minority groups. It argues that the future development and management of cultural tourism relies on a greater degree of mutual understanding between the sectors involved in its development, and on further communication, if it is to be sustainable, integrative and democratic.
