Schumann

Product : Schumann
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Robert Schumann, one of the most beloved composers of the Romantic movement, embodied the passion and imaginative spirit of his age. Known for his musical and literary genius and his legendary romance with his wife Clara, Schumann was also plagued with debilitative bouts of depression that led him to live his last days in a German mental asylum. This important new biography recreates the dynamics of this man and his music with unprecedented range, offering new insight into his final years and his lasting musical achievements. Drawing on Schumann's recently published journals, letters, and new research, author Eric Jensen renders a balanced portrait of the composer with both scholarly authority and engaging clarity. Biographical chapters alternate with commentary on Schumann's piano, choral, symphonic, and operatic works, demonstrating how the circumstances of his life helped shape the music he wrote at various periods. Chronicling the forbidden romance of Robert and Clara, Jensen offers a nuanced look at the evolution of their relationship. He also follows Schuman's creative musical criticism, which championed the burgeoning careers of Chopin, Liszt, and Brahms and challenged the musical tastes of nineteenth-century Europe. Most importantly, he presents new evidence that Schumann--locked away in the asylum at Endenich--had returned sufficiently to health to justify his removal from confinement a year before his death. Like the innovations of his final compositions from 1845-1854, his sanity was overlooked and misunderstood by his contemporaries. Jensen corrects the historical record, illuminating the tragedy of Schumann's final days and refuting the common dismissal of his finalworks as the result of an unstable mind. A significant addition to music literature, Schumann is the first authoritative biography of the composer written for general readers as well as music students and historians.

Am Ind Persistence-C

Product : Am Ind Persistence-C
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This collection celebrates the resurgence of Native Americans within the cultural landscape of the United States. During the past quarter century, the Native American population in the United States has seen an astonishing demographic growth reaching beyond all biological probability as increasing numbers of Americans desire to admit or to claim Native American ancestry. This volume illustrates a unique moment in history, as unprecedented numbers of Native Americans seek to create a powerful, flexible sense of cultural identity. Diverse commentators, including literary critics, anthropologists, ethnohistorians, poets and a novelist address persistent issues facing Native Americans and Native American studies today. The future of White-Indian relation, the viability of Pan-Indianism, tensions between Native Americans and North American anthropologists, and new devlopments in ethnohistory are among the topics discussed. The survival of Native Americans as recorded in this collection, an expanded edition of a special issue of "boundary 2, " brings into focus the dynamically adaptive values of Native American culture. Native Americans' persistence in U.S. culture--not disappearing under the pressure to assimilate or through genocidal warfare--reminds us of the extent to which any living culture is defined by the process of transformation.

Virgil's Cow

Product : Virgil's Cow
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Poetry. Twenty years in the making, VIRGIL'S COW is the debut collection by apocalyptic American poet and former hardcore vocalist Frederick Farryl Goodwin, whose poetry has been described as a "strange mix of Grand Guignol and lyricism ... a potent brew of fractured pastoral and seedy cityscapes, fragile confessionalism and Shakespearean film noir ... The workings of some Spicerian angel ... teetering on the brink of some ghastly void" (Signal to Noise Magazine). Improbably fusing the best of what tradition has to offer this "Oxbridge" educated poet with attention to recombinatory energies, VIRGIL'S COW presents a luminous voice for today's brave new linguistic world of "hybridized" possibility. "There is a genuine trance-vibe in Frederick Farryl Goodwin's voice. As if he's standing upon a suburban rooftop with a blue ribbon tied to his pinkie holding it in the air, eyes closed, divining the sounds and characters of mytho-loves past and future. His lines are alive, they must be, his breath so desires it. They delight in simple flux with fonts not afraid of sex. Frederick is a beautiful poet, authentic and undone, loving the page only to whisper in your year while clutching noise cassettes to his heart"--Thurston Moore, co-founder, Sonic Youth.

Wilhelm Tell (Dodo Press)

Product : Wilhelm Tell (Dodo Press)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805) was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and dramatist. Schiller wrote many philosophical papers on ethics and aesthetics. He developed the concept of the Schne Seele (beautiful soul), a human being whose emotions have been educated by his reason, so that Pflicht und Neigung (duty and inclination) are no longer in conflict with one another; thus "beauty," for Schiller, is not merely a sensual experience, but a moral one as well: the Good is the Beautiful. His philosophical work was also particularly concerned with the question of human freedom, a preoccupation which also guided his historical researches. Schiller is considered by most Germans to be Germany's most important classical playwright. Critics have noted his innovative use of dramatic structure and his creation of new forms, such as the melodrama and the bourgeois tragedy. Amongst his famous works are Love and Intrigue (1784), Don Carlos (1787), The Minister (1796), The Death of Wallenstein (1799), The Piccolomini (1800) and Mary Stuart (1800).

Digital Diversity: Youth, Equity, and Information Technology

Product : Digital Diversity: Youth, Equity, and Information Technology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Digital Diversity: Youth, Equity, and Information Technology" is about youth, schools, and the use of technology. Youth are instrumental in finding novel ways to access and use technology. They are directly affected by changes such as the proliferation of computers in schools and elsewhere, and the increasingly heavy use of the Internet for both information sharing and for communication. The contributors to this volume investigate how the resources provided by information and communication technology (ICT) are made available to different groups of young people (as defined by gender, race, rural location, aboriginal status, street youth status) and how they do (or do not) develop facility and competence with this technology. How does access vary for these different groups of youth? Which young people develop facility with ICT? What impact has this technology had on their learning and their lives? These are among the issues examined. Youth from a wide variety of settings are included in the study, including Inuit youth in the high arctic. Rather than mandate how youth should/could better use technology (as much of the existing literature does) the contributors focus on how youth and educators are actually using technology. By paying attention to the routine use and understandings of ICTs by youth and those teaching youth, the book highlights the current gaps in policy and practice. It challenges assumptions around the often taken-for-granted links between technology, pedagogy, and educational outcomes for youth in order to highlight a range of important equity issues.

Imago Hominis: Studies in the Language of Art

Product : Imago Hominis: Studies in the Language of Art
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his latest book, renowned art historian Moshe Barasch turns his attention to the image of the human figure in the history of European art from antiquity through the twentieth century. With the assistance of almost 200 illustrations, Barasch shows how images of humanity, far from being mere reflections of nature, are the product of cultural traditions and religious vision. In all cultures, artists and viewers of art have projected onto the human figure their hidden thoughts and emotions, thereby making it a vessel of symbolic images. "Imago Hominis" demonstrates how cultural and religious attitudes and beliefs are revealed in individual artistic motifs. Barasch constructs his study around three broad subjects: the human face; the human body; and a specific example of man in one of his social roles. Part One examines Greek masks as articulations of character and states of mind, and traces the afterlife of their physiognomic patterns in European art and aesthetic theory. In the second section, on the human figure as a pathos formula, movements and gestures are analyzed for the manner in which they express the language of art. The final section has as its focus images of the ruler as found in various art forms ranging from late- antique mosaics to equestrian monuments of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

A Thousand Years of Love

Product : A Thousand Years of Love
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A THOUSAND YEARS OF LOVE is a historical novel set in ancient Kyoto, Japan, and Hangzhou, China, a city described by Marco Polo as "the greatest in the world." Join Lady Kaishi, a noblewoman of the Heian Court, as she tries to find her mother's grave site, somewhere across the East China Sea. Her search takes her from the ancient city of Kyoto, to the Temple of the Purple Clouds, on the shores of the West Lake in China. Along the way her journey becomes an inner one as well, as she begins to see the people closest to her in a new light. She is both observer and participant in the romantic encounters of the Heian nobility, struggling to maintain her identity, transcending gender and blood in a display as passionate and brilliant as the silver waves glittering on her layered kimono. THE HEIAN PERIOD (794-1185), was a fascinating era in world history. It was Japan's aristocratic age, dominated by the "cult of beauty," and the pursuit of aesthetic ideals. Heian Kyo (City of Peace and Tranquility), was located in Kyoto, surrounded by hills, rivers, and mountains. Within this natural setting lived the Heian nobility, in an atmosphere of elegance, mystery, and androgyny. It was a time when the air was filled with the sound of Buddhist priests chanting sutras, and the fragrance of the finest incense...where elements of Chinese astrology, such as The Book of Changes ("I Ching"), the "yin" and "yang," Taoism, and "Feng Shui" were studied and practiced in daily life. Heian society is perhaps best described by the most famous literary women of the Heian Period, Lady Murasaki Shikibu, in "The Tale of Genji," and Sei Shonagon, in "The Pillow Book."

Witness: The Reign of God and Missional Churches Today

Product : Witness: The Reign of God and Missional Churches Today
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ron Lavin maintains that today's Christian believers face the same critical challenge as did the first-century apostles -- the call to witness to people in a corrupt culture by declaring and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Using the book of Acts as a model, Witness takes readers on an in-depth exploration of exactly what it means to be a missional church. Lavin examines the vital importance of witnessing, and discusses how we can become vessels for God's work through prayer, repentance, hospitality, koinonia, hope, and encouragement. The call to witness can be difficult (and sometimes even dangerous) -- but planting the seeds of faith often leads to amazing results. Witness is an excellent group study resource that will stimulate discussion, group interaction, and Christian outreach.

Grasping the Nettle of Peace: A Senior Palestinian Figure Speaks Out

Product : Grasping the Nettle of Peace: A Senior Palestinian Figure Speaks Out
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Khaled al-Hassan is a veteran figure within the Palestinian movement. With Yasser Arafat, he co-founded Fateh-the main within the PLO-over thirty years ago. Today, as chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the Palestine National Council (the PLO parliament-in-exile), he is an outspoken moderate who is not afraid of courageous initiatives. In Grasping the Nettle of Peace he spells out a bold plan for Middle East peace, advocating a radical new strategy based on a Swiss-style confederation of Israel, Palestine and Jordan. Al-Hassan's views are not official PLO policy: they are an appeal for greater vision from the Palestinian leadership carrying the weight of a man whose commitment to peace is long-standing. Following the start of the Arab-Israeli dialogue, this blueprint for the future could not be more timely. An invaluable section of the book includes important documents and UN resolutions relating to the question of Palestine.

U.S. Business and Today's Germany: A Guide for Corporate Executives and Attorneys

Product : U.S. Business and Today's Germany: A Guide for Corporate Executives and Attorneys
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : U.S. firms doing business in Germany are succeeding far better than usually reported. Indeed, 14 of the top 1,700 American companies with direct investment in Germany placed among the top 100 German industrial firms in sales in 1994, a fact that made big news in Germany but was never mentioned in the U.S. press. Here now, in one succinct, readable volume, is all of the vital information that American companies, and companies elsewhere, will need to enter and succeed in this lucrative German market. Certainly there are drawbacks, but attorneys James A. Hart and Dieter Schultze-Zeu make clear there are significant advantages as well, and in certain important ways it may be even easier to do business there than in other major industrial countries such as Japan. The authors look carefully at the scope of U.S.-German business, and then compare the three economic superpowers - Germany, Japan, and the United States - in terms of such variables as gross domestic product, economic growth, and industrial production. They review the political, economic, and social considerations that have emerged from the unification of West and East Germany, and show their effects on the ways in which business in Germany is now done. They examine the principle methods of selling to Germany, the impact of the German government and legal system on American businesses. Then they discuss in detail specifics such as the legal forms of business, Germany's accounting and tax laws, and laws relating to product liability, anti-trust, labor, and social security. Also covered are the German banking and accounting systems, stock markets, and the presence of U.S. commercial banks in Germany. Of special interest are case histories of several important U.S. companies doing business there. An exceptionally useful guide for corporate executives, attorneys, and a cogent introduction to the German business environment for students, researchers, and analysts in the academic community.

Description : Resisting alien invaders is easy. Protecting her heart is another story. Leah's plans for the weekend didn't include dealing with an alien invasion in her kitchen. But there's something about the wary, vulnerable, refugee half-breed Gabriel that compels her to hide him when the authorities come knocking on her door. Gabriel has good reason to be suspicious of both humans and his own kind alike. He's a halfling-half human, half Dar-the product of a breeding program undertaken for one purpose. To use the offspring's inbred powers to influence humans on a deeply emotional level. So deep, they won't know until too late that the Dar have gained more than a toehold on Earth. Raised in subhuman conditions, all Gabriel knows of life is how to endure it. Then Leah opens his eyes to a life richer than any he's ever known. Suddenly he's not so sure he wants to be a pawn in the Dar's non-violent, but no less insidious, plans. Leah and Gabriel go on the run to seek help from the government, only to discover the invasion's tentacles have gotten there ahead of them. In the final confrontation, the bond Leah and Gabriel have forged may be more than an emotional haven. It could save her world. Warning: contains explicit sex, alien encounters

That's enough. Remo is a company man though, a trained killer who works for CURE, the top-secret agency that doesn't exist, and if they don't want Smith to exist any longer, it is his job to murder him. Orders are orders. But who is the new director? Who hired him and who fired Smith? Could there be another infiltrator? CURE's security has been violated before, and there is always that possibility. There are a lot of questions to be answered before judgment day arrives.

Transference and Empathy in Asian American Psychotherapy: Cultural Values and Treatment Needs

Product : Transference and Empathy in Asian American Psychotherapy: Cultural Values and Treatment Needs
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Asian American population is increasing rapidly and, not unpredictably, so are its mental health needs. A number of cultural factors and stressors common to Asian Americans pose obstacles to the successful employment of Western psychotherapy approaches and counseling---for example, the central role of the family in Asian life and the culturally based, traditional stigma associated with mental health problems. The authors, all practicing psychotherapists, focus on the critical aspects of transference and empathy in their consideration of the mental health approaches and therapies appropriate to ethnic minority population. The work has value as a resource for professionals and as a training guide for those intending to practice as psychotherapists and counselors in minority communities. It offers extraordinary insights and practical guidance through the use of case studies. Not only do these identify problems stemming from the racial differences between client and therapist, but they also provide rich clinical examples of case diagnosis, treatment plans, and client status statements. This is an important book that will further both the theory and practice of psychotherapy among minority populations.

A Field Guide to the Acacias of Kenya

Product : A Field Guide to the Acacias of Kenya
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There are 44 species of acacia in Kenya, out of 1200 species globally. In Kenya, these distinctive trees are of particular interest because they are both used by the local people and eaten by wildlife. Acacias are also suited to commercial farming in arid conditions, which may be important if warming trends continue. This outstanding field resource provides a comprehensive guide -- in pictures and words -- to all the different types of acacia trees. It shows both floral and vegetative characteristics, - bark, leaves, pods, seeds - so that identification can easily be made even when the trees are not in flower. The authors provide clear explanations of botanical terms, detailed field keys, and instructions for using the keys. No previous knowledge of plant sciences is required to enjoy this authoritative guide, and it will be valuable to visitors and local inhabitants as well as to professional botanists, foresters, and ecologists.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book focuses on present knowledge of the biologic - in contrast to the psychologic - aspects of drug addiction and addictive behavior. It brings forth new lines of research in a subject that traditionally has been regarded as the domain of psychology and sociology. The individual predisposition to use addictive drugs repeatedly, and thus become addicted, varies strikingly from person to person. This implies important biological or even genetic differences, perhaps related to differences in structure and function of the reward systems of the brain. These and other biological, chemical, and genetic aspects are explored.

Sexuality in Adolescence

Product : Sexuality in Adolescence
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Sexuality in Adolescence: Current Trends considers the latest theory and research on adolescent development, focusing on sexuality as a vital aspect of normal, healthy maturation. Biological changes are discussed within a social context, and the latest research is presented on key issues of our time, including changes in teenage sexual behaviours and beliefs, sexual risk-taking, body dissatisfaction, sex education, teen pregnancy and abortion. Susan Moore and Doreen Rosenthal explore the roles of parents, peers, the media, social institutions and youth culture in adolescent sexual adjustment. This volume covers topical issues ranging from the role of the internet in adolescent romance to the pros and cons of abstinence education versus harm minimization. Issues, such as whether there are male-female differences in desire, sexuality, motives for sex, and beliefs about romance are examined, along with the question of whether a sexual double standard still exists. Maladaptive aspects of sexual development, including sexual risk-taking, disease, unplanned pregnancy, and sexual coercion are also covered. This fully revised and updated second edition also addresses the crucial issues of:
  • Sexual minority adolescents
  • The social determinants of adolescent sexuality
  • Sexual health as opposed to sexual illness.
This book aims to promote sexual well-being, and argues for the importance of the adolescent period as a time for engendering healthy sexual attitudes and practices. It will be valuable reading for students in the social and behavioural sciences interested in adolescent development and the topic of sexuality and for professionals working with young people.

The Names of Plants

Product : The Names of Plants
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides both a handy reference to the scientific names of plants and a clearly written account of the ways in which the naming of plants has changed with time and why these changes were necessary. It deals with the problems of using common names for plants against the historical background of our increasing discrimination of kinds of plants. It then goes on to consider landmarks in the standardization of both common and 'scientific' names and the development of internationally agreed principles governing the format and use of names in botany, sylviculture, agriculture and horticulture. From the alphabetical list the reader may interpret the scientific names of plants from any part of the world. For this second edition a number of changes and corrections in both parts have been made. The author has attempted to keep the first part acceptable to the amateur gardener by resisting a temptation to make it a definite guide to the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. Others have done this already and with great clarity. Revision has allowed the inclusion of a brief comment on both synonymous and illegitimate botanical names and reference to recent attempts to accommodate the various traits and interests in the naming and names of cultivated plants.

Description : In light of the ensuing difficulties in Iraq, post-conflict reconstruction planning and implementation is clearly a significant factor in the eventual success or failure of a military intervention. This report explains that specific post-conflict operation taskssuch as achieving and maintaining public security, establishing a process for political transition, and initial infrastructure repair and economic rehabilitation effortsare of vital interest to the parties of a conflict and the international community. The U.S. government currently is not organized properly to facilitate the successful implementation of these critical post-conflict activities. After assessing the current capabilities and operational structure of the government, this report recommends ways to more efficiently organize and allocate U.S. resources to manage post-conflict activities, and proposes mechanisms to leverage the capabilities of other international institutions.

Sex and the Citadel: Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World

Product : Sex and the Citadel: Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the political unrest that swept across the Arab region in 2011, all eyes were on the streets and squares erupting in protest. But for the past four years, Shereen El Feki has been looking at upheaval a little closer to home -- in the sexual lives of men and women across the Arab world. The result is "Sex and the Citadel, " an informative, insightful and engaging account of a highly sensitive and still largely secret aspect of Arab society. Sex might seem a strange lens with which to examine change in the Arab world; it is, in fact, a prism with which to refract the region's complex social spectrum. Sexual attitudes and behaviours are intimately bound up in religion, culture, politics and economics. As such, they are not only a reflection of the conditions that led to the recent uprisings, as well as one of the engines of revolt, but will also be a measure of hard-won reforms in the years to come. "Sex and the Citadel" is no peep show. By linking sexuality to political, economic, social and religious trends, it opens a window on the greater landscape of the Arab world, both for readers new to the region whose interest has been sparked by recent events, and for old hands familiar with the Arab world. Nor is the book an academic treatise: this is a highly personal account, rich with original research and first-person stories, that gives us unprecedented and timely insight into a part of the world that is transforming in front of our very eyes.

Literature and Domination: Sex, Knowledge, and Power in Modern Fiction

Product : Literature and Domination: Sex, Knowledge, and Power in Modern Fiction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Employing the theoretical resources provided by cultural critics such as Adorno, Jameson, Althusser, and Foucault, M. Keith Booker examines the treatment of issues of power and domination in modern literature. Discussing texts such as Virginia Woolf's The Waves, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, Thomas Pynchon's V., and Italo Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, Booker focuses on gender relations as a locus of struggles for power in human relations generally. He also pays special attention to the work of Samuel Beckett, reading the novels Watt and The Lost Ones to explore the issues of power and domination in an Irish cultural context.

Women/Men/Management (2nd Edition)

Product : Women/Men/Management (2nd Edition)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book looks at the real and perceived differences between women and men in organizations. Unlike most books on organizations, it attempts to integrate the theories of feminism and organizational behavior. In so doing it demonstrates why the issues of sex and gender are central to understanding organizational behavior. It finds that despite advances made in recent years, women and men still work in sex-segregated occupations. Women workers on the average earn lower pay than men and have fewer opportunities to acquire power and status. Men workers, on the other hand, receive less support than women in their efforts to balance work and family conflicts. Efforts to help women to adapt to a work environment dominated by masculine values have proved less than successful because they fail to address the broader issues. Organizations that hope to maximize their use of all employees must bring about cultural change through a broad, top down approach.

Assessment: Social Practice and Social Product

Product : Assessment: Social Practice and Social Product
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Assessment has become one of the most significant areas of interest in educational policy development, as well as the focus of complex political, economic and cultural expectations for change. Increasingly, governments worldwide have become aware that curricula and teachers can be indirectly controlled through programs of assessment. Opponents of centralized systems of mass assessment claim they are ill-suited to the diverse and changing needs of learners and users of assessment. In "Assessment" the UK and US writers take the reader beyond the obvious functions of assessment, and focus upon the roles it performs in the social structuring of society. They examine the myths and assumptions that underpin assessment and testing and draw attention to its cultural context. This collection is the first devoted explicitly to socio-cultural studies of assessment and the first to attempt to map the terrain of some thirty years of study in the field. Chapters are organized thematically, with background text providing comparative perspectives, key issues and further reading. The book therefore, provides a wide-ranging, structured and accessible approach to the study of socio-cultural origins and impacts of assessment.

Astrobiology: A Brief Introduction

Product : Astrobiology: A Brief Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Astrobiology -- the study of the intimate relationship between life and the cosmos -- is a fast-growing field that touches on aspects of cosmology, astrophysics, and chemistry. In the first scholarly overview of this dynamic field, biochemists Kevin W. Plaxco and Michael Gross tell the story of life from the Big Bang to the present. Emphasizing the biochemical nature of astrobiology, Plaxco and Gross examine the origin of the chemical elements, the events behind the developments that made the Universe habitable, and the ongoing sustenance of life. They discuss the formation of the first galaxies and stars, the diverse chemistry of the primordial planet, the origins of metabolism, the evolution of complex organisms, and the feedback regulation of Earth's climate. They also explore life in extreme habitats, potential extraterrestrial habitats, and the search for extraterrestrial life. This broadly accessible introduction captures the excitement, controversy, and evolution of the dynamic young field of astrobiology. It shows clearly how scientists from different disciplines can combine their special knowledge to enhance our understanding of the Universe.

Illusions of Safety: Culture and Earthquake Hazard Response in California and Japan

Product : Illusions of Safety: Culture and Earthquake Hazard Response in California and Japan
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Illusions of Safety" surveys the cultural influences on responses to earthquake risk in both the United States and Japan. The attitudes of Japanese and Californian respondents are compared and analyzed for their shaping of individual responses to earthquakes. Survey responses and the authors' firsthand experience of the reactions to the Kobe, Japan, earthquake in 1995 and the Northridge, California, earthquake are presented and show that the Japanese generally prefer a communal approach to earthquake response whereas Americans (more specifically Californians) place more emphasis on household self-sufficiency. The authors examine how these reactions influence public policy for earthquake preparedness and response in each country.

Advancing Research on Minority Entrepreneurship

Product : Advancing Research on Minority Entrepreneurship
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although minorities are more likely to engage in start-up businesses than Caucasians, minority entrepreneurs are less likely to get their enterprises off the ground or succeed in growing their businesses. Why do minority-owned businesses have higher failure rates, lower sales, lower profits, and less employment? The papers in this volume of "The ANNALS" review the three ingredients to creating a successful business: o Skill level and capability of the entrepreneur or the management teamo Access to financial resources and venture capitalo Market accessibility for the products or services provided by the enterprise Examining each of these vital factors, the authors address the effects of discriminatory barriers faced by minority business enterprises (MBEs) and examine whether the entrepreneurial process is more difficult for minorities than it is for whites. By focusing on the relationship between MBEs and each of these fundamental building blocks of business, this volume of "The ANNALS" offers explanations as to "why" it has been more difficult for minorities than for whites to succeed at entrepreneurial enterprises. Despite higher barriers for minorities, the nature of minority business has grown, and the size and scope has expanded as business diversity continues to flourish. The pioneering research in this volume of "The ANNALS" reflects the current diverse business environment by including research papers on the experiences of Latino entrepreneurs, as well as those of African-Americans. To date there has been a lack of substantial research and analysis on Hispanic entrepreneurship, but two intriguing studies included in this volume address thatvoid. Scholars, students, and researchers from a wide range of disciplines will gain valuable insights and understanding into this vibrant field of research, presented in a volume that propels the study of entrepreneurship forward. Those involved in the disciplines of business, organization studies, small business/entrepreneurship, strategic management and business policy, economic and development studies, and ethnic studies will find this volume of "The ANNALS" to be an important and fitting collection of substantial and relevant research as well as a springboard for future research in this growing area of study.

African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective

Product : African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : African Urban Spaces in Historical Perspective presents new and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of African urban history and culture. It presents original research and integrates historical methodologies with those of anthropology, geography, literature, art, and architecture. Moving between precolonial, colonial, and contemporary urban spaces, it covers the major regions, religions, and cultural influences of sub-Saharan Africa. The themes include Islam and Christianity, architecture, migration, globalization, social and physical decay, identity, race relations, politics, and development. This book elaborates on not only what makes the study of African urban spaces unique within urban historiography, it also offers an-encompassing and up-to-date study of the subject and inserts Africa into the growing debate on urban history and culture throughout the world. . The opportunities provided by the urban milieu are endless and each study opens new potential avenues of research. This book explores some of those avenues and lays the groundwork on which new studies can build.

Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice

Product : Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Understanding how ecosystems are assembled -- how the species that make up a particular biological community arrive in an area, survive, and interact with other species -- is key to successfully restoring degraded ecosystems. Yet little attention has been paid to the idea of assembly rules in ecological restoration, in both the scientific literature and in on-the-ground restoration efforts. Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology, edited by Vicky M. Temperton, Richard J. Hobbs, Tim Nuttle, and Stefan Halle, addresses that shortcoming, offering an introduction, overview, and synthesis of the potential role of assembly rules theory in restoration ecology. It brings together information and ideas relating to ecosystem assembly in a restoration context, and includes material from a wide geographic range and a variety of perspectives. Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology contributes new knowledge and ideas to the subjects of assembly rules and restoration ecology and represents an important summary of the current status of an emerging field. It combines theoretical and practical aspects of restoration, making it a vital compendium of information and ideas for restoration ecologists, professionals, and practitioners.

Selecting a Godly Spouse

Product : Selecting a Godly Spouse
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Are you seeking a Godly spouse? Your spouse is the only family member of choice you will ever have, so setting a solid and godly foundation of marriage is critical. This is especially true when you know that conflicts are inevitable in marriage (1 Corinthians 7:28). "Selecting a Godly spouse" gives the biblical recipe for what characteristics to look for in a spouse and shows how to recognize these when you see them. While attraction and compatibility issues cannot be discarded when seeking a spouse, marrying solely for these two reasons often brings disenchantment with the marriage and, sadly, eventual divorce. The perfect will of God for marital foundation is that we not be unequally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14, Genesis 24:4). If you truly desire setting a solid foundation for your marriage, then this book is a must-read.

Description : Nationalism, cultural identity, the politics of representation, culture wars, cultural globalization -- these are some of the themes explored in this collection of essays on Southeast Asia. Instances of cultural identity formation in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are examined by authors from the region as well as Australia and Canada. They draw on insights developed in the relatively new fields of cultural and post-colonial study, but at the same time attuned to the rather specific histories of Southeast Asian cultures and society. At the same time, by making the very notion of "culture" upon which such identities are based problematic, these essays offer important criticisms of those regimes of power that point to the unique cultural features of the region in order to ward off all challenges to their authority.

Regulatory Politics in Transition

Product : Regulatory Politics in Transition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Regulatory Politics in Transition Marc Eisner argues that to understand fully the importance of regulatory policy we need to survey the critical policy shifts brought about during the Progressive period, the New Deal, and the contemporary period. Eisner adopts a regulatory regime framework to address the combination of policy change and institutional innovation in each period. The Progressive period, Eisner explains, saw the creation of a market regime in which new policies were created to preserve markets or create marketlike results. The New Deal brought an associational regime, one in which power was vested in economic associations that were integrated into a regulatory system designed to promote stability. The late 1960s and early 1970s brought a new societal regime, in which policies addressed the social consequences of economic activities in the areas of environmental protection and occupational health. But it was displaced by the efficiency regime, a response to the poor economic performance of the 1970s and the growing faith in the market as an alternative to regulatory policies. For each of these periods Eisner examines economic structural changes and the prevailing political economic and administrative theories that conditioned the design of new policies and institutions. Throughout, Eisner adds a valuable historical dimension to the discussion of regulation by showing how policies and institutions were shaped by particular historical and political circumstances.

The Making of a Modern Indian Artist-Craftsman: Devi Prasad

Product : The Making of a Modern Indian Artist-Craftsman: Devi Prasad
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Making of the Modern Indian Artist-Craftsman is intended to be a biographical and critical insight into the work of the potter, painter and photographer Devi Prasad. Apart from the making of his personal history and his times, it leads us to why the act of making (art) itself takes on such a fundamental philosophical significance in his life. This, the author explains, derives directly from his absorption of Gandhia (TM)s philosophy that looked at the act of making or doing as an ethical ideal, and further back to the impact of the Arts and Crafts Movement on the ideology of a Swadeshia (TM) and on the milieu of Santiniketan. This book examines his art along with his role in political activism which, although garnered on Indian soil made him crisscross national borders and assume an important role in the international arena of war resistance. Devi Prasad graduated from Tagorea (TM)s Santiniketan in 1944 when he joined the Hindustani Talimi Sangh (which promulgated Nayee Taleem) at Gandhia (TM)s ashram Sevagram as Art a Teachera (TM). His political consciousness saw him participate actively in the Quit India Movement in 1942, in Vinoba Bhavea (TM)s Bhoodan and later from 1962 onward as Secretary General (later Chairman) of the War Resistersa (TM) International, the oldest world pacifist organisation based in London. From there he was able to extend his Gandhian values internationally. All of this, while continuing with his life as a prolific artist. Rather than view them as separate worlds or professions, Devi harmonises them within an ethical and conscionable whole. He has written widely on the inextricable link between peace and creativity, on child /basic education, Gandhi and Tagore, on politics and art, in English, Hindi and Bangla. In 2007 he was awarded the Lalit Kala Akademi Ratna and in 2008, the Desikottama by Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan.

Redemption: The Story of Jonah

Product : Redemption: The Story of Jonah
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is the eighth century BC. No Hebrew will purposely venture into the Assyrian Empire, whose practice of barbarous slaughter casts a shadow of fear over all of Israel. But God calls Jonah, an Israelite prophet, to cry repentance to the evil empire's capital--the great and terrible city of Nineveh. Fearing the Assyrians and doubting the wisdom of the divine call, Jonah flees in the opposite direction. But in a series of miracles, God gives Jonah a second chance to obey. Journey with Jonah in a wealth-laden ship of Tarshish, hear his prayers inside the belly of a great fish, witness his struggles working in a desert caravan, and feel his terror as he finally arrives in Nineveh. And while Jonah does eventually preach in the great city, the prophet still has some lessons to learn...
