Product : The Federal Reserve ACT: Making the American Banking System Stronger

Description : The American banking system after the Civil War was not centralized but rather functioned independently in different geographical areas. Policies were not coordinated to insure that the money supply was sufficient to keep governments and businesses running properly. Through the efforts of the progressives, the Federal Reserve Act was passed to devise and implement a plan to stave off problems in currency, policies, and the money supply.

Description : InWhere Thousands Fell, Fr. William J. Leonard recounts his experiences as a priest-professor who left his books and put on a uniform so that fighting men might not be without the support of religious faith and practice. He tells the story of indoctrination in Chaplain School, of his first awkward beginnings in a stateside camp, of life aboard a transport threatened by enemy submarines, of heat and malarial mosquitoes and incessant rain in a rear-echelon base deep in the jungles of New Guinea, of the bloody beach-head in the Philippines and the immense effort to mount in Manila the assault on the Japanese homeland, of peace at last and a grateful return to civilian life.

The Young Christian

Product : The Young Christian
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The books in this series are copies of 18th and 19th century books. The stories have the original language, sentence structure, and art. The stories present problems people faced, and the principles they preached are as relevant today as they were then. May God be pleased to bless the contents of our "Children's Heritage Series" to the lives of each reader. Webster's warning was given many years ago; times have changed, but not in a Godly manner. The mission of Triangle Press is to furnish concerned parents tools to help teach children the truth. This "Children's Heritage Series" has not been rewritten as the Character Building Series was, but the books are reproduced in their original form; a form which some feel is antiquated. True. However, they represent not only the teachings of Godly principals, but they also represent a piece of our history and heritage. The vocabulary contained in these books is rich and varied; it is a far cry from the usual limited and bland use of words found in much of today's children's literature. Some children may even be challenged to rewrite a story in modern grammar; the stories may also be used as a springboard for family study and discussion. There are many aspects of this "Children's Heritage Series" to be cherished. There was sorrow in the home of wealthy Mr. Howe. His wife had been called away in death, and he was left with two small sons. Johnny, the younger of the two boys, could be very easily managed; but Freddie, though very amiable and winning, had always been an erring child. The father could have coped better if he could have had the counsel of his Christian wife, who had always made her decisions by prayer. His father sends Freddieaway to school in the country, where he meets many new friends. His best friend, Joe, sees the erring heart in his little friend, and prays for guidance when he suspects Freddie had stolen the money. Follow Freddie through the pages of this book, and see his transformation from a very self-willed child to a true witness to all his friends for his Saviour.

Open for Business: Migrant Entrepreneurship in OECD Countries

Product : Open for Business: Migrant Entrepreneurship in OECD Countries
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Migrants contribute to the economic growth of their host countries in many ways, bringing new skills and competencies with them and helping to reduce labour shortages. An aspect that has received only limited attention up to now is migrants' contribution to entrepreneurial activity and employment creation in their host countries. In OECD countries, entrepreneurship is slightly higher among immigrants than natives and the total number of persons employed in migrant businesses is substantial, although the survival rate of these businesses is often lower than that of their native counterparts. Migrant entrepreneurship has gone beyond traditional ethnic businesses, into a wide range of sectors and innovative areas. Greater knowledge of migrant entrepreneurship is essential if policy makers are to better support migrant enterprises and their role in economic growth and job creation. In addition, increasing awareness of the positive role that migrants can play as entrepreneurs could contribute to a more balanced public debate on immigration. Taking a cross-country perspective, this publication sheds light on these issues and more, discussing policy options to foster the development and success of migrant businesses. It is a compilation of papers presented at a June 2010 conference organised by the OECD Secretariat, with the financial support of the Swedish and Turkish authorities, and the Dutch-Turkish Businessmen Association (HOTIAD).http: //www.oecd.org/els/migration/entrepreneurship

When the Angels Have Risen

Product : When the Angels Have Risen
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jerry Fletcher is a down-on-his luck Los Angeleno who relocated to Las Vegas after a run-in with the authorities in Los Angeles. After one year of living in Las Vegas, he decides to take a one-day hiking trip with some of his co-workers in a secluded canyon on the outskirts of Las Vegas, but he is mysteriously transported to an alien spaceship. There he learns that much of Judeo-Christian religion was actually provided by the helping hand of alien angels. Fletcher is also told that there is ongoing alien war between two factions for control of Earth and that this war has been going on for thousands of Earth years. With this explanation, pondering the confusing dilemma between what the prophets have said and what the past and present clerics interpreted, Fletcher is subsequently sent back to Earth to prophetically explain his new knowledge of our present politics and religion. The government gets wind of Fletcher's attempt to speak about the aliens, so when the government tries to stop his speech, a riot breaks out which then quickly leads to a revolt by the American people against the corrupt government of President Halliburton and the Christian Right. The revolt erupts into a civil war. And because of Fletcher's speech in Las Vegas, which was carried via the Internet, uprisings and massive change suddenly take on a global scale. The Civil War in America becomes a war between the so-called "Blue and Red" states with the government allied with the "Red" and the "Blue" supported by the Liberators allied by the Canadians. The war comes to an end with major battles in Las Vegas near Nellis Air Force Base and Pennsylvania. The United States is split into two with the Southern States cedingfrom the Union. After liberation of America with the help of Canada, Fletcher becomes a Senator from California. A year later during a Fletcher's commemorative speech in Las Vegas, the Aliens of the LIGHT descend upon the stage establishing and acknowledging a new order of peace,

Uvajuq: The Origin of Death

Product : Uvajuq: The Origin of Death
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The story of Uvajuq (oo-va-yook) is rooted in a time when people and animals lived in such harmony and unity that they could speak to each other. For Inuit, as for people whose traditions include the story of the Garden of Eden, this idyllic existence came to an abrupt end a long time ago. The story told here, in words and pictures, speaks of that ancient event and of the transition to an existence where a different kind of sharing prevails. This old Inuit legend has recently taken on an entirely new dimension in Cambridge Bay, with the uncovering of a unique array of artifacts during an archaeological survey of the hill known as Uvajuq. The mysterious find offers a compelling confluence of myth and reality. The legend of Uvajuq, as told here, was collected from a group of Inuit elders in the Nunavut community of Cambridge Bay, 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. On the surface, it is the story of how three prominent hills near the community were formed. Underlying that is a tale of much deeper significance.

Milton in Government

Product : Milton in Government
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For students of the poet, Robert Fallon's Milton in Government fills a gap in modern knowledge of his life, the ten years he labored as Secretary for Foreign Languages to the English Republic. For Interregnum historians, the book offers a study of the international affairs of the Republic from a unique perspective, as well as a detailed analysis of the government bureaucracy that conceived and articulated foreign policy during the 1650s. Milton's decade of public service to the English Republic, and the collection of State Papers which are the product of those years, have been either misunderstood or largely ignored by Miltonists, and their influence upon his poetry all but dismissed. Making extensive use of the State Papers Foreign in the Public Record Office, hitherto overlooked by literary scholars, and the Calendar of State Papers Domestic, Fallon offers the first definitive description of the poet's place in government. He finds Milton to be an indefatigable and highly knowledgeable public servant, closely involved in the expression of foreign policy, and responsible for many more documents than have been previously ascribed to him. His State Letters reveal him as a man intimately aware of international events, a consideration which leaves little doubt that his experience in government had a significant influence on his creative imagination. Fallon also provides a reading of Milton's tracts of 1659-1660, tracing the influence of a decade of public service in his political philosophy and questioning historians' conclusions that he was repudiating Cromwell's Protectorate in his appeal to stave off the Restoration.

The Book of Tea

Product : The Book of Tea

Description : ""The long isolation of Japan from the rest of the world, so conducive to introspection, has been highly favourable to the development of Teaism. Our home and habits, costume and cuisine, porcelain, lacquer, painting-our very literature-all have been subject to its influence. No student of Japanese culture could ever ignore its presence. It has permeated the elegance of noble boudoirs, and entered the abode of the humble. Our peasants have learned to arrange flowers, our meanest labourer to offer his salutation to the rocks and waters. In our common parlance we speak of the man ""with no tea"" in him, when he is insusceptible to the serio-comic interests of the personal drama. Again we stigmatise the untamed aesthete who, regardless of the mundane tragedy, runs riot in the springtide of emancipated emotions, as one ""with too much tea"" in him."" -The Book of Tea 1906

While Mortals Sleep

Product : While Mortals Sleep
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : NATIONAL BESTSELLER Foreward by Dave Eggers These previously unpublished, beautifully rendered works of fiction are a testament to Kurt Vonnegut's unique blend of observation and imagination. Here are stories of men and machines, art and artifice, and how ideals of fortune, fame, and love take curious twists in ordinary lives. An ambitious builder of roads fritters away his free time with miniature trains--until the women in his life crash his fantasy land. Trapped in a stenography pool, a young dreamer receives a call from a robber on the run, who presents her with a strange proposition. A crusty newspaperman is forced onto a committee to judge Christmas displays--a job that leads him to a suspiciously ostentatious ex-con and then a miracle. Featuring a Foreword by Dave Eggers, "While Mortals Sleep" is a poignant reflection of our world as it is and as it could be.

News Online: Transformations and Continuities

Product : News Online: Transformations and Continuities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : News matters. It is still the main forum for discussion of issues of public importance. It is where we come together to inform, persuade, influence, endorse or reject one another in a collaborative process of making meaning from events. But the news is changing--content, distribution channels, geographical constraints, production values, business models, regulatory approaches and cultural habits are all in flux, as new media technologies are adopted and adapted by users. Established media organisations are in many cases struggling to adapt to a changed environment--even though they have driven many of the changes themselves. This book charts a course through these upheavals. It ranges over a broad terrain--from the BBC to experimental videogames, from Latin American newsrooms to Northeast Asian blogs, from the crisis in US newspapers to Twitter users in Iran. Its chapters are written by leading international scholars, who question established understandings of news in the light of change. They consider the shifting boundaries between the popular and the professional made possible by the redistribution of news functions. They analyse how popular digital communications change relations of production and consumption, and of cultural and political participation.

These are among the many important and fascinating questions examined in this book, the first thorough historical survey of the multi-layered connections between religion and politics in the United States. This unique collection presents previously unpublished essays by seventeen of America's leading historians and social scientists, including John Murrin, Harry Stout, John F. Wilson, Daniel Walker Howe, Bertram Wyatt-Brown, Robert Swierenga, Martin Marty, Robert Wuthnow, and George Marsden. Together, these distinguished contributors provide comprehensive coverage of the historical interaction between religion and politics in America, from the colonial and Revolutionary periods, with intense commitments to and disagreements over religion, through the evangelical Protestant ascendency that marked the nineteenth century, to the growing pluralism and heightened antagonism between liberal and conservative factions that typify our own era.

Marac: The Biodiversity and Environment of an Amazonian Rainforest

Product : Marac: The Biodiversity and Environment of an Amazonian Rainforest
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few tropical ecosystems have been subjected to multi-disciplinary investigations as broad and exhaustive as those carried out on the Ilha de Maraca, a riverine island in the Brazilian Amazon. This diverse and remarkable ecological reserve, in Brazil s northernmost Amazon state of Roraima, includes environments and habitats ranging from rainforests and semi-deciduous forests to natural savannas, lakes, rivers and palm swamps. These have been subjected to an in-depth international scientific study whose primary aim was to undertake one of the most detailed ecological surveys ever conducted in Amazonia. The results of this enormous body of research, involving the collaborative fieldwork of some 200 workers, span the reserve s geology, geomorphology, botany, zoology, phenology, soils, limnology, ecology and historical human occupation. These have been carefully drawn together in this volume in such a manner as to provide not only a coherent and scholarly picture of an unique and fascinating environment, but also an important and enduring source of reference for a broad spectrum of disciplines to the Amazon environment. This book is a timely reminder of the crucial importance of our understanding of rainforest components and their interrelationships, appearing as it does at a period when there is an intense interest in this extremely endangered ecosystem.

Non-Regular Statistical Estimation

Product : Non-Regular Statistical Estimation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In order to obtain many of the classical results in the theory of statistical estimation, it is usual to impose regularity conditions on the distributions under consideration. In small sample and large sample theories of estimation there are well established sets of regularity conditions, and it is worth while to examine what may follow if any one of these regularity conditions fail to hold. "Non-regular estimation" literally means the theory of statistical estimation when some or other of the regularity conditions fail to hold. In this monograph, the authors present a systematic study of the meaning and implications of regularity conditions, and show how the relaxation of such conditions can often lead to surprising conclusions. Their emphasis is on considering small sample results and to show how pathological examples may be considered in this broader framework.

Plantation Silviculture in Europe

Product : Plantation Silviculture in Europe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As pressures to preserve natural forest resources have increased, plantation forestry and its study have gained in importance. Plantation Silviculture in Europe is an up-to-date, timely, and comprehensive exploration of the principles that underlie the planting and maintaining of forest resources. Based on the excellent reception of Savill and Evans' Plantation Silviculture in Temperate Regions (OUP, 1986), which was largely UK-based, the inclusion of two European authors ensures that the scope of this new book extends across the entire continent. Plantation Silviculture in Europe provides a thorough overview of the central aspects of conventional plantation forestry, covering site preparation, choice of species, establishment and maintenance, nutrition, spacing, thinning and pruning, and protection. In addition, it acknowledges the changing emphasis and increasing diversity of contemporary forestry, and includes chapters on community woodlands, urban forests, plantings for amenity and sport, and energy crops. Throughout, an attempt is made to setpractices in the context of the ecological and biological forest processes which underpin them. Plantation Silviculture also incorporates discussion of the many environmental, social and policy issues that surround forestry today. Concise and clearly written, this will be essential reading for graduate and undergraduate forestry students and forestry professionals alike. Likely to become the standard text throughout Europe, it also contains much material of relevance to foresters in North America, East Asia, and Australasia.

Invariant Theory and Tableaux

Product : Invariant Theory and Tableaux
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume stems from a workshop held for the Applied Combinatorics program in March 1988. The central idea of the workshop was the recent interplay of the classical analysis of q-series, and the combinatorial analysis of partitions of integers. Many related topics were discussed, including orthogonal polynomials, the Macdonald conjectures for root systems, and related integrals. Those people interested in combinatorial enumeration and special functions will find this volume of interest. Recent applications of q-series (and related functions) to exactly solvable statistical mechanics models and to statistics makes this volume of interest to non-specialists. Included are several expository papers, and a series of papers on new work on the unimodality of the q-binomial coefficient.

Logic Synthesis of Asynchronous Controllers and Interfaces

Product : Logic Synthesis of Asynchronous Controllers and Interfaces
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is devoted to logic synthesis and design techniques for asynchronous circuits. It uses the mathematical theory of Petri Nets and asynchronous automata to develop practical algorithms implemented in a public domain CAD tool. Asynchronous circuits have so far been designed mostly by hand, and are thus much less common than their synchronous counterparts, which have enjoyed a high level of design automation since the mid-1970s. Asynchronous circuits, on the other hand, can be very useful to tackle clock distribution, modularity, power dissipation and electro-magnetic interference in digital integrated circuits. This book provides the foundation needed for CAD-assisted design of such circuits, and can also be used as the basis for a graduate course on logic design.

Description : Pretty girls in pretty dresses, partying until dawn. Irresistible boys with mischievous smiles and dangerous intentions. White lies, dark secrets, and scandalous hookups. This is Manhattan, 1899. Beautiful sisters Elizabeth and Diana Holland rule Manhattan's social scene. Or so it appears. When the girls discover their status among New York City's elite is far from secure, suddenly everyone--from the backstabbing socialite Penelope Hayes, to the debonair bachelor Henry Schoonmaker, to the spiteful maid Lina Broud--threatens Elizabeth's and Diana's golden future. With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders, Elizabeth must choose between family duty and true love. But when her carriage overturns near the East River, the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current. As all of New York grieves, some begin to wonder whether life at the top proved too much for this ethereal beauty, or if, perhaps, someone wanted to see Manhattan's most celebrated daughter disappear... In a world of luxury and deception, where appearance matters above everything and breaking the social code means running the risk of being ostracized forever, five teenagers lead dangerously scandalous lives. This thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent.

Description : War has been a fact of human life as long as history itself, and has often been its determining factor. But what makes a military encounter "decisive?" For military historian John Colvin, it is when the outcome can be measured on a scale far wider than simple victory or defeat, when it can be seen to affect immediate history. Here, he discusses more than 20 battles that are recognizable turning points, from Salamis in 480 BC, through Hastings and Yorktown, to some of the major conflicts of the 20th century. Written with elegance and expertise, this is a work that illuminates a complex area of history.

Rethinking Unionism: An Alternative Vision for Northern Ireland

Product : Rethinking Unionism: An Alternative Vision for Northern Ireland
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this stimulating work Norman Porter tackles the all-important question: How can the divisiveness of the Northern Ireland situation be overcome? Is there a unionist vision of the future capable of inspiring confidence among citizens and encouraging reconciliation with non-unionists? He thinks there is, and it requires a dramatic rethinking of what unionism means and stands for. Porter proposes a new position, a "civic unionism". It anticipates a way of life in which both the Britishness and the Irishness of Northern Ireland are recognized and structures of democracy and justice are established. In a thoughtful argument which draws on a wide range of political theorists and history (including Habermas, Fukuyama, Rawls, and Charles Taylor), he proposes a new union which will accommodate all questions off cultural identity. A rare internal critique of unionism, this book has attracted much interest and critical response throughout Ireland.

Decorating Your Garden: Creative Ideas for Transforming Your Outdoor Living Space

Product : Decorating Your Garden: Creative Ideas for Transforming Your Outdoor Living Space
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As an extension of the home, the garden offers endless scope for decoration, yet the possibilities beyond gardening and planting are often left unexplored. "Decorating Your Garden" gives a unique angle to the design potential of the outdoor living space, with original creative projects to help reinvent the garden with beautiful decorative features and non-planting ideas. With a novel and practical approach, this book takes the principle of home decoration outside, and suggests ways to add atmosphere and style to the garden room whatever its shape or aspect. Outdoor floors are given innovative treatments using shells, pebbles or mosaic while walls and fences respond beautifully to paint effects and creative plasterwork. Fixtures and fittings such as trellises, archways and pergolas can add a new dimension to the garden, and an inspired look at garden furniture -- from elegantly draped awnings to weathered-effect painted chairs -- brings immediate results. A clever use of easy-to-make accessories can enhance even vegetable plots and practical elements, while exciting ideas and treatments for boxes, baskets, pots and planters show how to develop a decorative theme with color and charm. All the ideas in this stimulating book are inexpensive and easily achieved, and will provide inspiration for unique creative projects. Richly illustrated with beautiful color photographs, "Decorating Your Garden" shows how to create a visually stunning outdoor retreat with a true sense of personal style.

The Slovak Dilemma

Product : The Slovak Dilemma
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Slovak Dilemma is a case-study in nationalism. Accepting the view that the four and a half million Slovaks who inhabit the eastern part of Czechoslovakia are a separate Slav ethnic group, Dr Steiner describes their position in Czechoslovak history, their role in political life, the extraordinary persistence and continuing frustration of their national aspirations. After a brief survey of the history of the Slovaks under Hungarian rule, Dr Steiner examines their position in the democratic Czechoslovak Republic which was established in 1918. He analyses the causes of Slovak discontent and shows that although the new constitution granted full expression to Slovak culture, it limited complete development of Slovak national rights. Nevertheless he suggests that Slovak separatism played little part in the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia in 1938 and that the real attitude of the people towards Hitler's puppet Slovak State was eloquently expressed in their tragic rising against it in August 1944.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As the nineteenth president of the United States, Rutherford B. Hayes brought an end to Reconstruction and returned order to the White House. But it was his service as a volunteer officer in the Union army during the Civil War that provided the most glorious years of his life and made his post-war political accomplishments possible. Although he spent much of the war on the periphery, away from the major centers of activity, Hayes performed conspicuously whenever called upon. He participated in the repulse of dreaded Confederate raider John Hunt Morgan's Ohio Raid and, although only a colonel, commanded a division in General Philip Sheridan's devastating Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864. No professional soldier, Hayes was nonetheless a natural warrior. Another future president, William McKinley, wrote of his fellow Ohioan, "His whole nature seemed to change when in battle." Normally kind and agreeable, Hayes grew "intense and ferocious" during a fight. In all, he was wounded five times and had four horses shot from under him. And while he ended the war as a brevet major general, Hayes noted that he "never fought a battle as a general." He was, by his own reckoning, simply "one of the good colonels in the great army."

Jazz Generations: A Life in American Music and Society

Product : Jazz Generations: A Life in American Music and Society
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Until recently, the West Coast jazz scene occupied an unjustifiably obscure place in jazz history. Yet, in the heyday of jazz, the Los Angeles Central Avenue scene was a mecca for Hollywood stars and other jazz buffs who wanted to hear the music of people like Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Mingus, and Chico Hamilton. The Central Avenue Sounds Research Project at UCLA has done much to ensure that Central Avenue is recognized, along with Harlem and New Orleans, as the birthplace of jazz. Buddy Collette -- a key figure in American jazz since the early 1940s -- is unusual in that, while based on the West Coast, he won a truly international following. Collette worked closely with Mingus, went on to join the Chico Hamilton Quartet, and later played with Thelonious Monk and Gil Evans. He has run his own quartet for thirty years while also writing, arranging, and playing film scores. In Jazz Generations, Collette recounts his close friendships with other jazz greats and gives brief but illuminating portraits of Parker, Paul Robeson, and Frank Sinatra. He also shares an insider's look at the world of the studio musician -- particularly his years on the "Groucho Marx Show" -- and gives important accounts of the racial integration of the musicians' union and of the watts riots in the 1960s.

Secondary Breadwinners: Israeli Women in the Labor Force

Product : Secondary Breadwinners: Israeli Women in the Labor Force
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The first comprehensive account of women's participation in the Israeli labor force, Kraus's book analyzes the trends in the status of women in paid employment since the 1960s. Covering all aspects of labor force participation, she fully integrates, and tracks over time, the many facets of social stratification by gender in Israeli society. Though founded as an egalitarian society, Kraus's research clearly shows that traditional attitudes toward women in the Israeli workplace have prevailed over those more progressive. Consequently, the widely held impression that the status of women in Israel differs from that of their counterparts in other liberal democratic societies, is shown to be more myth than reality. Though focusing on Israel, comparisons are made with other modern industrial societies, adding to the evidence accumulating on the changing trends in the status of women in the labor force that will interest scholars and students concerned as to how gender intersects with matters of political economy. Furthermore, the unique spectrum of communities in Israel, ranging from traditional Muslim Arab-Palestinians, through Christian Arab-Palestinians and Jews of African American origin, through to the more modernized Jews of European-American origin, enables simultaneous examinations of the various stages of women's integration in the labor force.

New to the band, Flo finds herself the only girl in a man's world, and she kept this diary to deal with her changing life. She captures the band's plight as they tour North America, living on stranger's couches, fighting among themselves, getting and losing record deals, and performing for just enough cash to make it to the next town. In addition to the pursuit of rock stardom, Flo also seriously studied the pagan religion of Wicca, and her spiritual life grows and changes as the pages turn. You will laugh at the idiocy, experience the raging, energetic crowds from the view of a drummer playing on stage, and recognize the struggle bands go through to meet their definition of success. Full of the drugs, the drama, and the dreams of rock and roll, "Diary of a Redneck Vampire" pushes limits and exposes the ugly truth of the beginning stages of a band in their struggle to make it in the music industry, shared uniquely from the perspective of a female participant.

Beyond the Graven Image: A Jewish View

Product : Beyond the Graven Image: A Jewish View
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the archetypical story of Abraham smashing his father's household idols to God's commandment at Mount Sinai that "You shall have no other gods before Me," the prohibition in Judaism against the worship of idols has been unyielding. Idolatry is conceived as the antithesis to the worship of the invisible, unnamed, and articulate God. The proscription against using images in worship sets Judaism, together with Islam, apart from all other religious systems. In "Beyond the Graven Image, " Lionel Kochan sets out to explain the reasons for this prohibition and to demonstrate how influential this image-ban has been in determining key aspects of Jewish thinking. The Jewish conceptions of holiness and symbolism, our relationship with God, and the role of memory in religion, he argues, as well as the preference for non- material arts such as music over visual modes of artistic expression within Judaism, have all been profoundly shaped by the prohibition against physical representations of God.

Reconstructing Camelot: French Romantic Medievalism and the Arthurian Tradition

Product : Reconstructing Camelot: French Romantic Medievalism and the Arthurian Tradition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : French Romanticism was a widespread movement, as apparent in the works of historians and scholars as in the works of creative writers. One of its principal characteristics was the cult of the middle ages, and this book examines the treatment of the Arthurian legends in French Romantic medievalism. Taking into account works of historiography and literary history, as well as literary texts proper, it assesses the place of the Arthurian material in French culture in the period up to 1860, the date of publication of Edgar Quinet's Merlin l'enchanteur. In so doing, it reveals key features of French Romanticism and traces the origins of some of the problems and contradictions which still affect the practice of medieval studies. The authorargues that the depiction of Arthurian legends in French Romantic writing discloses some of the underlying ideological positions of the movement and the developing tensions between the interests of a general literary public and the ambitions of scholars seeking to define and promote medieval literature as an emerging field of study. In addition to scholars such as Claude Fauriel, Paulin Paris and Francisque Michel, other important figures in French Romanticism are considered, including Quinet and Michelet.MICHAEL GLENCROSSis Senior Lecturer in French at the University College of Ripon & York St John.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : 1907. English novelist and playwright, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932, Galsworthy became known for his portrayal of the British upper middle class and for his social satire. The novel begins: The year was 1891, the month October, the day Monday. In the dark outside the railway station at Worsted Skeynes Mr. Horace Pendyce's omnibus, his brougham, his luggage-cart, monopolized space. The face of Mr. Horace Pendyce's coachman monopolized the light of the solitary station lantern. Rosy-gilled, with fat close-clipped grey whiskers and inscrutably pursed lips, it presided high up in the easterly air like an emblem of the feudal system.

Description : In an autobiographical novel that reads like memoir, Ngovan Rajic recounts the final years of the Second World War and the year immediately afterwards from the viewpoint of a young resistance fighter in the former Yugoslavia. But this is not a war memoir, replete with grim details and grand, heroic gestures; the older Ngovan's life experiences " and his distance from the story " have given him a strong sense of irony. Having survived the war, the young narrator of the novel returns to the country's capital and enrolls in the Faculty of Engineering in the University of Belgrade only to discover that the political movement sweeping his country " and its leader, Tito, known in To the Far Shore as The Grand Master and The Master of the Keys " is undermining his education and the entire society in which he grew up. Realizing that his future was not to be found in his homeland, the young narrator takes a trip to see his father, explains himself, and then, together with a friend, plans his defection to Austria.

Mitochondrial Disorders: From Pathophysiology to Aquired Defects

Product : Mitochondrial Disorders: From Pathophysiology to Aquired Defects
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The concept of mitochondrial diseases originated in 1962 with the description by Luft and coworkers of a patient with nonthyroidal hypermetabolism due to loose coupling of oxidation and phosphorylation in muscle mitochondria. Over the following quarter of a century, thanks to W. King Engel's "ragged-red fibres" as convenient markers for mitochondrial pathology, numerous papers described clinical, morphological, and biochemical features of "mitochondrial myopathies." In 1988 the discovery of mutations in mitochondrial DNA led to an explosive expansion of research into mitochondrial disorders. Throughout the 1990s the rapid identification of multiple mitochondrial gene defects associated with clinically diverse disorders has left practitioners puzzled about diagnosing such heterogeneous and complex syndromes. Through updated data, this book discusses now what Luft aptly called "mitochondrial medicine." In so doing, it considers the pivotal role of mitochondria in drug sensitivity, their key roles in ageing, apoptosis, and neurodegeneration along with primary mitochondrial diseases due to mutations in the nuclear genome, in the mitochondrial genome, or in the cross-talk between the two genomes.

Information Theory of Molecular Systems

Product : Information Theory of Molecular Systems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As well as providing a unified outlook on physics, Information Theory (IT) has numerous applications in chemistry and biology owing to its ability to provide a measure of the entropy/information contained within probability distributions and criteria of their information "distance" (similarity) and independence. Information Theory of Molecular Systems applies standard IT to classical problems in the theory of electronic structure and chemical reactivity. The book starts by introducing the basic concepts of modern electronic structure/reactivity theory based upon the Density Functional Theory (DFT), followed by an outline of the main ideas and techniques of IT, including several illustrative applications to molecular systems. Coverage includes information origins of the chemical bond, unbiased definition of molecular fragments, adequate entropic measures of their internal (intra-fragment) and external (inter-fragment) bond-orders and valence-numbers, descriptors of their chemical reactivity, and information criteria of their similarity and independence. Information Theory of Molecular Systems is recommended to graduate students and researchers interested in fresh ideas in the theory of electronic structure and chemical reactivity. -Provides powerful tools for tackling both classical and new problems in the theory of the molecular electronic structure and chemical reactivity -Introduces basic concepts of the modern electronic structure/reactivity theory based upon the Density Functional Theory (DFT) -Outlines main ideas and techniques of Information Theory

Product : Woldemar Neufeld's Canada: A Mennonite Artist in the Canadian Landscape 1925-1995
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Woldemar Neufeld (19092002) emigrated with his Mennonite parents from Ukraine to Canada in 1924. By the late 1920s, he had begun his lifelong project as documentarist, responding especially to the built environment, whether close to his home in southern Ontario or farther afield: northern Ontario, the prairies and the west coast, the Maritimes and Quebec. His work passed through a number of styles, from the coolly abstract to the vividly realistic. Although he never abandoned oils, he produced a substantial body of watercolours and block printsthe latter influenced by German Expressionist and Japanese-Canadian printmaking approaches. "Woldemar Neufelds Canada," a record of Neufelds Canadian paintings and block prints, explores influences that shaped Neufelds career as it developed in Canada during the 1920s and 1930s and came to fruition from 1940s to the 1990s. Early on, Neufeld came into contact with leading Canadian artists, from Homer Watson to members of the Group of Seven. During the 1930s, he began to participate in group and solo exhibitions, including a one-man show at the Vancouver Art Gallery. After studies in Cleveland, he settled in New York City (1945) and New England (1949). Until the 1990s, however, he continued to work in Canada, returning especially to document, in various media, urban and rural landscapes in southern Ontario.

Description : Besieged in Lucknow - The full account of a famous siege from a man at the heart of every event. For those who have read anything of the Residency at Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny the name Gubbins is as familiar as that of Kavanagh or Lawrence. Gubbins' Post is as memorable a bastion as Lone Pine was on the Gallipoli Peninsula. This is the story of Martin Gubbins himself, whose house became Gubbins' Post and who, among other duties, manned and defended it throughout the siege. No-one was better qualified than Gubbins to record the Siege of the Lucknow Residency. Not only was he present from the rumours of mutiny to the relief, but he was central to the command structure, most of the time responsible for intelligence and communications.

Journalism: State of the Art

Product : Journalism: State of the Art
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A necessity for the professional journalist's library, Journalism: State of the Art will prove a valuable resource for the student journalist as well. This book summarizes some 200 media studies many from the most prestigious journal in the trade, Journalism Quarterly. In a paraphrased-synthesis format, and using informal terms, the author arranges some of the most interesting studies of the 1980s into eight subject headings including: Ethics Law, and the Journalist; Advertising in the 1980s; Polling and Precision Journalism; and Predictors of Readership and Viewship. For many years there has been a gap between media researchers and the practicing journalist. Published research about journalism as a discipline may receive attention in the classroom but seldom gets in the newsroom. Viewing the gap between the researcher and practitioner, Willis offers comments from both sides. He surveys nearly 150 news executives on media research and gives an insightful look at what factors cause readers or viewers to pay attention to the news media. From trends in the industry to types of audiences, Journalism: State of the Art uses practical research studies presented in an accessible style. Offering the most current data available on media research, this book will prove a great instructional as well as reference tool. It is a must for college journalists, working press, and media marketers.

Heavenly Father My Father: A Personal Quest to Know My Creator

Product : Heavenly Father My Father: A Personal Quest to Know My Creator
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Heavenly Father My Father is my personal testimony of my quest to find God. I started this quest in the fall of 1992. It was during the year of 1987, while at work. One day I heard, "What would you do if anything were possible, bar cost, bar anything?" Again, I heard, "Just what would you do?" I said, "I would like to spend the rest of my life bringing healing to people and have them quit killing each other because of race, creed, or color." Nothing else was said and at the time I thought the question was from my own mind. In this book, I cover my awakening and initiation by spirit to the light and my understanding of the path to enlightenment. Over the last thirteen years, I have been filled with the Word. I have shared my truth of what I have gleaned from all that was brought to me. I cover what was my major life's lesson, and some of the minor lessons that were brought to me. I now know why we are here and why we have problems in our lives. In 1994, after being initiated into the light by those from the other side of the veil, I counted eighteen personal health problems.; some of them, I felt, could have taken my life. Some of these problems might have become life threatening within a very short time. My guides on the other side of the veil worked with me in resolving the issues that were causing my health problems. My guides one day said that all my problems were just going to melt away - and indeed, they have. Today, at the age of sixty-four, I am totally pain free. I was also told I was going to live a lot longer and the Lord has granted my request to become a facilitator in bringing healing to others. The healing energy that flows through me over the last thirteen years has indeed become much stronger. The most important thing, however that came from this spiritual quest is that I no longer have a distance between my Heavenly Father and myself. I can now say without any reservation, "I and my Heavenly Father are one."

Long Term Control of Exhaustable Resources

Product : Long Term Control of Exhaustable Resources
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is concerned with the modern theory of non-renewable resource exploitation and its empirical implications. Its approach is analytical and formalised but technical details are left out wherever they do not contribute to the understanding of a question. The main part of the exposition is devoted to the encironment, trade, macroeconomy and taxation. The management of the encoronment, for example, wtih its finite capacity to absorb pollution, is the mirror image of a mining problem complicated by market failure. The analysis of the macroeconomy, trade or taxation, involves further considerations of disequilibrium, general equilibrium and complex dynamics.

Blessing the House

Product : Blessing the House
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his fourth book of poems, Jim Daniels visits the sites of domestic faith -- Catholic schools, sex and marriage, childbirth -- in an attempt to witness a world worth believing in. A sense of search unites these poems, whether they take place on the cement slabs of a 1950s Detroit suburb or on the hillside cemetery of an Italian village. In their search for hope, grace, and decency in the small dramas of an individual life, the poems of Blessing the House become larger, more overtly political. They are, as Daniels writes, "prayers for this world, with their clear consequence".

Locality: A Theory and Some of Its Empirical Consequences

Product : Locality: A Theory and Some of Its Empirical Consequences
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this ambitious monograph, Manzini organizes and clarifies the voluminous evidence that exists on local dependencies according to a single, unified theory of Locality. Locality is a simpler and more comprehensive alternative to the barriers approach, the antecedent-based approach, and the connectedness approach, subsuming all the major locality principles (Subjacency, ECP, and binding theory) invoked in the other approaches and explaining a set of islands that remain refractory to those approaches. The first chapter defines the empirical problem and provides an overview of the solution; it also introduces the three main alternatives to Locality theory. The second chapter presents Manzini's theory in detail and includes a unification of Subjacency and the antecedent-government clause of the ECP and a unification of the ECP internal disjunction between the antecedent-government and the head-government clause. In chapter 3, Manzini argues for the empirical superiority of Locality, offering data predicting that Complex NP islands, Tense islands, and Definiteness islands all belong to the same fundamental type while multiple WH-islands reflect the fact that at most two overlapping extraction paths are available at any given point in a derivation. The final chapter looks at binding, showing that it can be accounted for under the same Locality principle as movement but without the need for anaphors to move at any level of representation.
