Description : This inaugural volume of a projected annual provides a forum for the new academic research field of green politics.

The contributors include sociologists, political scientists, business analysts, and language specialists. Among the American contributors are Anthony D. Affigne of Brown University and Herbert Kitschelt from Duke. Each of the articles reports original social-scientific research.

Product : Encoded Archival Description on the Internet
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Archivists and librarians: here is the perfect introduction to archival description and its latest technological applications Encoded Archival Description on the Internet introduces a variety of perspectives that will assist you in deciding whether EAD is an appropriate tool in a given context and, if it is, provides the knowledge you need to begin planning, organizing, and implementing projects and programs in your library. This informative book: shows how archival description differs from bibliographic description presents EAD as a standard and shows its relation to the MARC format and other standards discusses implementation issues examines museum use of EAD gives you an overview of the history of the development of EAD explores the reference implications of EAD discusses implications for nontraditional users examines the concept of union-universal access to archivesEAD version 1.0 was formally released by the Society of American Archivists and the Library of Congress Network Development and MARC Standards Office in autumn 1998. Since then, a great number of institutions have invested significant time and money to prepare for implementation of EAD programs. The most compelling reason for EAD's success is that, in the words of Editors Pitti and Duff, "Archivists recognize in EAD their shared principles and practice, and have embraced EAD not as a full realization of all of their expectations, but as common ground upon which they can negotiate and realize the future of one of the profession's central responsibilities."Encoded Archival Description on the Internet shows how EAD will not only benefit the public, but also librarians and archivists. It describes how information professionals will now be able to easily share information about complementary records and collections and to "virtually" integrate collections related by provenance but dispersed administratively or by geographic distance.

Overexpression and Knockout of Cytokines in Transgenic Mice

Product : Overexpression and Knockout of Cytokines in Transgenic Mice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cytokines are a steadily growing family of molecules which play a major role in intercellular communication. Key questions for the cytokine researcher today include 'which cytokines are involved in the pathophysiology of a disease or immune response', 'when do these cytokines function' and 'which of their many activities are relevant "in vitro." The intricate ways in which they act, often with the exhibition of pleiotropic or synergistic effects, make the study of cytokine biology complicated, and the results potentially ambiguous using conventional systems. As a consequence, many investigators are now utilizing the powerful tools of transgenic technology to address some of these questions. Written by the leading authorities in the field, this book describes the achievements realized so far, and clearly demonstrates the feasibility of using this approach to study the expression of this group of biologically important substances.

Statius: Silvae

Product : Statius: Silvae
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this delightful homage to the now unfashionable Neapolitan poet, two contemporary poets who share a fascination with his work present their selection of fresh versions from his best-known collection. In their introductions they explore the background to his work and the qualities, literary and human, which drew them to him. Publius Papinius Statius (c. 45-96 AD) was a prize-winning poet whose reputation remained high until well into the Middle Ages. He featured both in Chaucer's House of Fame (as Stace') and in Dante's Divine Comedy, where he is called il dolce poeta'. Anthony Howell, born in 1945, is well known as a performance artist and as poet. He has published eleven collections of poetry, several - including his Selected Poems (2000) and Dancers in Daylight (2003) - with Anvil, as well as a novel and other prose works. Bill Shepherd, born in 1935, is a therapeutic counsellor. His Horace: The Complete Odes and Epodes and Propertius: The Poems were published as Penguin Classics in the 1980s. Several collections of his poetry have appeared, including three from Anvil. His most recent is Mother's Milk (Menard, 2006).

The International Law on Ballast Water: Preventing Biopollution

Product : The International Law on Ballast Water: Preventing Biopollution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The introduction of invasive marine species into new environments, whether by ships' ballast water, attached to ships' hulls or via other means has been identified as one of the four main threats to the world's oceans, along with land-based sources of marine pollution, over-exploitation of living marine resources and the physical alteration or destruction of marine habitat. Increased trade and the consequent greater volumes of maritime traffic over the last few decades have served to fuel the problem. The effects in many areas of the world have been serious and significant. Quantitative data show that the rate of bio-invasions is continuing to increase, in some cases exponentially, and new areas are being found to be invaded all the time. As volumes of seaborne trade continue overall to increase, the problem may not yet have reached its peak. In response, IMO first adopted Guidelines for Preventing the Introduction of Unwanted Organisms and Pathogens from Ships' Ballast Water and Sediment Discharges in 1991; while the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, recognized the issue as a major international concern. The IMO Guidelines have since been kept constantly under review and updated. Subsequently, in February 2004, the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments was adopted. In providing a broad overview of the legal aspects related to marine pollution caused by ballast water and tank sediments, this book offers a pragmatic analysis of the current international legal system, and includes principles of international customary law and also references to a comprehensiveenvironmental treaty law framework which relates the Ballast Water Convention to other treaties, such as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), MARPOL and the Convention on Biological Diversity. With such a wide-ranging approach, this book will certainly provide a source of valuable information for all those with a requirement to pursue the subject in depth."

Product : Paediatric Neoplasia: An Atlas and Text
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This atlas is a practical approach to problems commonly encountered in paediatric tumour diagnosis. It comprehensively covers a wide range of common and unusual entities. Over 300 full-colour illustrations are complemented by a text which is pragmatic and succinct. References have been carefully selected to reflect current thought and well-written reviews. New treatment strategies have led to considerable improvement in the salvage rate and prognosis in childhood neoplasia. Histological diagnosis in this area is fraught with problems and the demand invariably has been for a prompt and accurate histological reporting. The problems although wide-ranging, are particularly manifest in the area of the small round-cell tumours which constitute an important proportion of paediatric cancers. This atlas will be invaluable as a bench manual for the practising pathologist and as a study aid for the trainee. It will also be of interest to all oncologists and paediatricians.

Description : In an era of ever-increasing national consciousness combined, paradoxically, with pressures for regional economic integration, this thought-provoking and exhaustively researched volume will challenge readers' assumptions about optimal paths to national economic development.Drawing on archival sources as well as published materials in eight languages, Jan Kofman analyzes both the intent and the efficacy of nationalist policies and economic protectionism in Europe's central and eastern regions--traditionally, its weaker and less industrialized states. He concludes that such policies, where implemented, generally succeeded in promoting individual state's economic growth and modernization during the interwar period.

Money and Value: A Reconsideration of Classical and Neoclassical Monetary Theories

Product : Money and Value: A Reconsideration of Classical and Neoclassical Monetary Theories
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book addresses one of the major theoretical issues that underlies, implicitly or explicitly, some recurrent controversies in macroeconomics - namely, whether a competitive monetary economy has built-in mechanisms that are strong enough to remove excess demands and supplies on all markets, through an automatic adjustment of the price system. Jean-Michel Grandmont sheds light on this complex subject by using the analytical techniques of general equilibrium theory alongside the methods of monetary analysis. The book warns against the indiscriminate use of the rational expectations hypothesis when approaching this topic, and conversely stresses the common-sense observation that short-run learning processes are among the most important characteristics of economic agents. Grandmont argues that such processes are deserving of careful theoretical study, and the result is a clear and rigorous analysis of all the issues involved.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The latest magical mystery tour de force from one of Britain's most original novelists - winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award for "Behind the Scenes at the Museum," On a peat and heather island off the West Coast of Scotland, Effie and her mother, Nora, take refuge in the large mouldering house of their ancestors and tell each other stories. Nora, at first, recounts nothing that Effie really wants to hear, such as the identity of her real father - variously Jimmy, Jack, or Ernie. Effie tells of her life at college in Dundee, the land of cakes and William Wallace, where she lives in a lethargic relationship with Bob, a student who never goes to lectures, seldom gets out of bed, and to whom the Klingons are as real as the French and the Germans. But strange things are happening. Why is Effie being followed? Is someone killing the old people? And where is the mysterious yellow dog? In a brilliant comic narrative which explores the nonsensical nature of language and meaning, Kate Atkinson has created another masterpiece.

Key Concepts in Mental Health

Product : Key Concepts in Mental Health
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mental Health is a highly contentious concept and an area of study which is often bewildering to new students and trainee practitioners. In this context, Key Concepts in Mental Health provides a much needed guide to the central topics and debates which shape contemporary views about mental health and illness and which govern the provision of services for people with mental health problems. The fifty concepts featured in this book are examined through a multidisciplinary lens, drawing together perspectives from sociology, psychology, psychiatry and ethics. Part One examines the contested nature of mental health and mental health problems and includes traditional psychiatric descriptions, as well as rehearsed criticisms of them. Part Two focuses on mental health services, the ways in which mental health work is organized and the professional interests involved in service delivery. Part Three addresses a range of topics related to mental health and society, and places mental health within its social context. Key Concepts in Mental Health is an ideal text for those studying mental health in a range of disciplines as well as those training to work in mental health settings.

Advancing Quality Improvement Research: Challenges and Opportunities - Workshop Summary

Product : Advancing Quality Improvement Research: Challenges and Opportunities - Workshop Summary
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Institute of Medicine's Forum on the Science of Health Care Quality Improvement and Implementation held a workshop on January 16, 2007, in Washington, DC. The workshop had its roots in an earlier forum meeting when forum members discussed what is meant by the terms "quality improvement" and "implementation science" and became convinced that they mean different things to different people. At the time, the members also discussed the need to identify barriers to quality improvement research and to implementation science. Thus the purpose of this workshop was to bring people together from various arenas to discuss what quality improvement is, and what barriers exist in the health care industry to quality improvement and also to research about quality improvement. The summary that ensues is thus limited to the presentations and discussions during the workshop itself. We realize that there is a broader scope of issues pertaining to this subject area but are unable to address them in this summary document. The workshop's first session was devoted to experiences that various institutions have had with quality improvement. Recognizing the wealth of experiences available outside of health care services, the workshop included presenters from outside the health care service industry as well as from inside. This includes discussions from a variety of perspectives: non-health care services, health plans, hospitals, and nursing. Advancing Quality Improvement Research: Challenges and opportunities - Workshop Summary describes the events of the workshop.

Reforming Health and Education: The World Bank, the IDB, and Complex Institutional Change

Product : Reforming Health and Education: The World Bank, the IDB, and Complex Institutional Change
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : During the 1990s, far-reaching reforms in the health and education sectors have become a high priority in much of the developing world. The surge of attention reflects three sets of pressures: the need to consolidate hard-won fiscal and market-oriented reforms; new or renewed attention to poverty reduction; and the requirements of democratic consolidation. Multilateral organizations, especially the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank, encourage and support the new emphasis on health and education reforms. They have dramatically increased their lending in these areas since the mid-1980s and work closely with reform-minded officials in many countries. But with few exceptions, reforms in these fields have proved slow, modest, and subject to erosion or reversal. Reforming health and education entails institutional changes and political challenges even more complex and formidable than earlier macroeconomic shifts or the re- structuring offinancial sectors. Dr. Nelson explores the obstacles to reform and the potential and limits of the Banks' roles in helping to overcome these obstacles. She reviews the substantial changes already made in lending instruments and approaches, and identifies constraints within the Banks themselves that are yet to be effectively addressed.

Field Days: An Anthology of Poetry

Product : Field Days: An Anthology of Poetry
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Meadows and fields exist at the boundary where human endeavors meet the natural world. The poems in this collection are drawn from across centuries of a literary tradition that uses the pastoral landscape as setting for exploring complex and timeless questions about that encounter between human and non-human existence.The poems were chosen as lyrical celebrations-or in some instances, eulogies-for fields, and for the old way of life that fields represent. Some of the poets evoke lullabies out of childhood memory; others beat archetypal time to the rhythm of work: plowing and sowing, haying and threshing. More recent poems document the increasingly uneasy coexistence of people and fields, witnessing the grim effects of development and careless use of once fertile hillsides and meadows.This anthology brings together the work of more than ninety poets, ancient and modern, including: Wendell BerryWilliam BlakeRobert GravesSeamus HeaneyJohn KeatsDenise LevertovSylvia PlathChristina RossettiWalt Whitman

Recent Developments in Alcoholism: Volume 4

Product : Recent Developments in Alcoholism: Volume 4
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It was once taken for granted that peer-assisted groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous had no real value in recovery from addiction. More recently, evidence-based medicine is recognizing a spiritual component in healing especially when it comes to addiction. The newest edition of Recent Developments in Alcoholism reflects this change by focusing on the 12-step model of recovery as well as mindfulness meditation and other spiritually oriented activity. More than thirty contributors bring together historical background, research findings, and clinical wisdom to analyze the compatibility of professional treatment and nonprofessional support, day-to-day concepts of relapse prevention, the value of community building in recovery, and much more. Among the topics covered: (1) How and why 12-step groups work. (2) The impact of the spiritual on mainstream treatment. (3) The impact of AA on other nonprofessional recovery programs. (4) AA outcomes for special populations. (5) Facilitating involvement in 12-step programs. (6) Methods for measuring religiousness and spirituality in alcohol research. Whether one is referring clients to 12-step programs or seeking to better understand the process, this is a unique resource for clinicians and social workers. Developmental psychologists, too, will find Volume 18 Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery a worthy successor to the series.

Child Development & Behavioral Ped Pod

Product : Child Development & Behavioral Ped Pod
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Being sick is a normal part of childhood, and being seriously ill is the unfortunate lot of many children. Every child in the United States has some contact with the healthcare system at some time, and it is estimated that one of every two children or adolescents is hospitalized as a result of illness or injury. Being injured, undergoing routine medical procedures, getting sick, or being hospitalized confront children with challenges on many levels--physical, mental, emotional, and social. The premise of this volume is that developmental and psychological factors are central elements in many current problems in child health such as persistent crying in infants, sources of children's injury and respiratory illness, children's coping with medical procedures, childhood trauma, and physical and mental well-being in adolescence. Understanding, promoting, and maintaining children's health, therefore, depend to a great extent--and are likely to depend even more in the future--on elucidating the determinants and consequences of children's and parents' health-related behaviors and attitudes. Chapter contributors include physicians and psychologists who apply principles of developmental and social psychology to their research on specific problems in children's health. Their offerings delineate current areas of collaboration between developmental psychology and behavioral pediatrics. These perspectives should prompt researchers and practitioners to explore additional ways in which more extensive endeavors at the interface of these two disciplines will facilitate efforts to understand children's health behaviors and foster children's well-being. Attention to this work should lead to more direct clinical applicability and translation for preventive policy strategies as well as therapeutic interventions.

Atomic Winter

Product : Atomic Winter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Get ready for nonstop action. Schuss down slopes with two drunken anti-heroes: Samuel, the rugged Colorado skier, and Erik, a Norwegian ski bum. The men are given a mission that exceeds their integrity: to capture secret weapon plans from the Nazis. They are challenged not only by a mystic shaman of the woods who is the best skier in Norway and protector of the Sami, but also by the Nazis. Atomic Winter most certainly is the very first ski suspense thriller Rating - Excellent Atomic Winter, by Travis Godbold is a concise, fast-paced little thriller with surreal overtones. Set largely in Norway in January of 1943, Atomic Winter has all the action you might expect from a WWII action thriller, but also has a supernatural flavor served up by the character of the wonderfully weird Lapp shaman who seems to be a perfect manifestation of the forbidding and spookily beautiful Norwegian winter landscape, ornamented with dazzling sunsets and shaggy pines. Caught between duplicitous allies and evil Nazis, alcoholic American skier Samuel and Norwegian ski bum Erik become inadvertently entangled in a plot to steal vital papers on a horrifying secret weapon from a Nazi outpost. After making a clumsy attempt to steal the papers from the Nazis, Samuel and Eric are captured after discovering that the papers have already been stolen by someone else. Shortly afterward, they are rescued by a strange blue-faced Lapp shaman that Samuel nicknames the ablue devil, a and a stampede of graceful yet murderous reindeer. After they escape, the ablue devila hides Samuel and Erik with his wandering Lapps, the people he calls the Sami. During their flight from the Nazis and time spent with the Lapps, Samuel discovers that the Shaman has the secret papers stolen from the Nazisaand conspires with Erik to steal them from his mysterious host and return them to the allied forces in exchange for a rich reward. The subsequent action, which encompasses a colorful mix of winter warfare and weird, semi-magical events is fast, fun and furious. In less than a hundred pages, Godbold creates a terrific action thriller with haunting overtones and magical highlights in a breathtaking setting that includes many fantastic ski chases in the Norway snows. This will be a perfect book to read on a winter evening by a roaring fire. If you stick close by the fire, maybe the blue devil wonat get you Book Review.com

What Happened to the Soviet Union?: How and Why American Sovietologists Were Caught by Surprise

Product : What Happened to the Soviet Union?: How and Why American Sovietologists Were Caught by Surprise
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Xenakis examines the responses of Soviet experts in American academia-primarily political scientists, but also economists and defense scholars who specialized in the USSR-to the unfolding evidence of Soviet reform during the 1970s and 1980s and to its ultimate collapse. He concludes that American Sovietologists and other political scientists were more responsive to the Cold War consensus-to the needs of the State Department, Defense, and CIA policy makers and to the official Washington line of the moment-than to the changing face of the Soviet Union. As Xenakis makes clear, many of the Cold War ideas and attitudes shared by Sovietologists-the notion that the USSR was an evil empire; the idea that Soviet society was irredeemably xenophobic and indolent; that the Soviet political and economic system could not be fixed or reformed; and the view that the best way for Washington to deal with Moscow's influence was to contain the USSR through arms races, global, and proxy wars-were reminiscent of the policies and arguments of the Truman and Eisenhower administrations, not to the facts on the ground in the 1970s and 1980s. An important work for scholars, students, and researchers involved with Soviet and Russian studies, international political and military affairs, intellectual history, and the relationship between academia and the government.

The First Texas News Barons

Product : The First Texas News Barons
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Those interested in how power is used& #151as well as who gets to wield it-- will enjoy this contribution to the study of journalism, often called the rough draft of history." -- East Texas Historical Association Newspaper publishers played a crucial role in transforming Texas into a modern state. By promoting expanded industrialization and urbanization, as well as a more modern image of Texas as a southwestern, rather than southern, state, news barons in the early decades of the twentieth century laid the groundwork for the enormous economic growth and social changes that followed World War II. Yet their contribution to the modernization of Texas is largely unrecognized. This book investigates how newspaper owners such as A. H. Belo and George B. Dealey of the Dallas Morning News, Edwin Kiest of the Dallas Times Herald, William P. Hobby and Oveta Culp Hobby of the Houston Post, Jesse H. Jones and Marcellus Foster of the Houston Chronicle, and Amon G. Carter Sr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram paved the way for the modern state of Texas. Patrick Cox explores how these news barons identified the needs of the state and set out to attract the private investors and public funding that would boost the state's civic and military infrastructure, oil and gas industries, real estate market, and agricultural production. He shows how newspaper owners used events such as the Texas Centennial to promote tourism and create a uniquely Texan identity for the state. To balance the record, Cox also demonstrates that the news barons downplayed the interests of significant groups of Texans, including minorities, the poor and underemployed, union members, and a majority of women.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : International Capital Flows in Calm and Turbulent Times analyzes the financial crises of the late 1990s and draws attention to the type of lenders and investors that triggered and deepened the crises. It concentrates on institutional investors and banks and provides detailed analysis of the countries most affected by the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis as well as the Czech Republic and Brazil. It also suggests necessary international financial reforms to make crises less likely. The book is unique in its scrutiny of the type of lenders and investors that triggered and deepened the crises, focusing particularly on institutional investors and banks; allocation of their assets; the criteria used in this process; and the impact of the nature of the investor on the volatility of different types of capital flow. It addresses such questions as: What determines or triggers massive changes in perceptions and sentiment by different investors and leaders? To what extent does contagion spread not just among countries but between actors? What are the policy implications of this analysis? The book concludes by examining the asymmetries in the financial architecture discussions and implementation and by offering policy proposals.

Description : Polly Tidd, a squatter's daughter, and her sister, Rebecca, are kidnapped, their brother scalped by Delaware Indian marauders. The sisters are dragged off their homestead, carried across the Hudson to a Lenape village on the Delaware. Through her strong religious beliefs and sheer grit, Polly survives to be adopted by the sachem, Black Turtle, and the matriarch, She Bear. Assuming a native identity and name, (Mockwasaka), Polly takes on the ways of the Lenape, wedding the couple's son and future sachem, Red Hawk (Mechkalanne), a skillful hunter. Polly, now Mockwasaka, follows Red Hawk and the clan as they journey west in pursuit of scarce game and fertile soil for the planting of their sacred corn. They are soon swept up in the turmoil of the Indian Wars on the Western Frontier during the Revolutionary War period. Mockwasaka and her adoptive people struggle to survive drought, starvation, smallpox and the constant threat of massacre at the hands of battling American militia, the British and their Indian allies roaming the region. Woven throughout the novel are Indian tales which enhance the narrative and create dramatic relief to the harrowing experiences of Polly and her Lenape family.

Hope and Despair: My Struggle to Free My Husband, Maher Arar

Product : Hope and Despair: My Struggle to Free My Husband, Maher Arar
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The inspiring story of Monia Mazigh's courageous fight to free her husband, Maher Arar, from a Syrian jail. On September 26, 2002, Maher Arar boarded an American Airlines plane bound for New York, returning early from vacation with his family because a work project needed his attention. He was a Canadian citizen, a telecommunications engineer and entrepreneur who had never been in trouble with the law. His nightmare began when he was pulled aside by Immigration officials at JFK airport, questioned, held without access to a lawyer, and ultimately deported to Syria on the suspicion that he had terrorist links. He would remain there, tortured and imprisoned for over one year. Meanwhile his wife, Monia, and their two children stayed on visiting family in Tunisia, unaware that their lives were about to be torn apart. Upon her return to Canada, Monia was horrified at the media's and public's willingness to assume that the Canadian police and intelligence agencies, and their American counterparts, take on her husband as a terrorist was correct. She began a tireless campaign to bring public attention and government action to her husband's plight, eventually turning the tide of public opinion in Arar's favour, and gaining his release and return to Canada. Of her willingness to speak out, she has said that she was never afraid: "I had lost my life. I didn't have more to lose." This is a remarkable story of personal courage, and of an extraordinary woman who lets us into her life so that other Canadians can understand the denial of rights and the discarding of human rights her family suffered. Candid, poignant, and inspiring, this is the most important book of the season. "From the Hardcover edition."

Product : Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family: A Pastoral Care Approach enables grief counselors, pastors, hospice specialists, hospital chaplains, mental health practitioners, educators, and seminary students to bring an understanding of faith development, family systems, and gender and ethnic differences into their professional practice as they work with dying and grieving persons. No other book covers all these themes. Not only a great resource for practical guidance, this book is also meant to be provocative, suggestive, and stimulating to professionals and educators charged with working with and teaching about dying and grieving persons.With 50 years of providing pastoral care to dying and grieving persons and 30 years as a pastoral educator, George Bowman understands the nature and concerns of dying and grieving persons. In Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family he answers the questions you should be asking yourself--including: How does faith development affect relationships of the dying person and family and friends? How does faith development affect grief management by the survivors? How does the family systems approach help the pastor or counselor work with dying persons and their survivors? What gender and ethnic issues are important to remember in helping to minister and serve persons in crises of dying and grieving?The value of Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family lies in its approach to dying and grieving from the perspectives of faith development, family systems theory, gender, and ethnicity. Bowman's unique work proposes that personal development and faith development influence the way one deals with the crises of dying and grief work.

The World Economy: A Global Analysis

Product : The World Economy: A Global Analysis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As globalization continues apace, market segmentations are diminishing, distance is shrinking and the boundaries between nation states are becoming increasingly blurred. National economies are closely interlinked through manychannels and we rarely view things from a single country's view, adopting a global perspective instead. It is therefore imperative to understand how the world economy functions. This book utilizes up to date empirical evidence to illuminate the mechanics of the world as a single entity. The author explores the properties of the world economy, the diverse mechanisms of interdependence, shocks and disturbances, economic processes and structures, and the institutional arrangements that guide these processes. Key topics covered include:
  • world GDP, growth and global product and factor markets
  • China as a new global player
  • the roots and impact of financial and currency crises
  • the performance of the developing countries over time (which have gained, which have lost?)
  • conflicts between the national interest and global concerns (protectionism, locational competition for mobile factors of production, environmental issues)
  • the institutional arrangements for the world economy (IMF, WTO).
The World Economy: A Global Analysis will be essential reading for students studying the world economy from the perspective of economics, finance, business and politics.

Sexology in Culture: Labelling Bodies and Desires

Product : Sexology in Culture: Labelling Bodies and Desires
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The key founders of sexology, the "science of desire," were Havelock Ellis, Richard von Krafft-Ebing, and Magnus Hirschfeld. This volume examines the impact of their writings on English-speaking culture from the 1880s to the early 1940s. How influential a field was sexology during this period, and how much power did sexologists wield? What was the impact of their work on popular and official attitudes to sex? Lucy Bland and Laura Doan have brought together leading historians of sex, cultural and literary critics, and scholars in gay, lesbian, and queer studies, to reassess current debates on sexology in light of its history. They address issues such as the relation of "sexual science" to the law, government policy, journalism, eugenics programs, marriage and sex manuals, and literary representation. They also map out new readings of transsexuality and bisexuality, and the centrality of race within sexology. "Sexology in Culture" and its companion "Sexology Uncensored" will interest all those concerned with understanding modern sexual discourse in its historical context.

Political Capacity and Economic Behavior

Product : Political Capacity and Economic Behavior
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Given today's heightened competition between national economies in the global marketplace, many have come to believe that government intervention is needed in order for a country to maximize its economic well-being. But to what extent can even the most capable government act to attract investment and enhance economic growth without creating or exacerbating conflicts in society--especially when unpopular measures, such as those aimed at controlling inflation and population growth, must be implemented?This timely book by an international team of economists and political scientists tackles that question head on. The contributors draw on theory and empirical data to provide a framework for measuring governments' ability to gather material resources and mobilize populations. They analyze a variety of policy choices made in the United States and in other nations around the world during the past fifty years, showing how states can increase their political capacity and thereby reduce economic transaction costs and domestic resistance to government goals.

Jammin' at the Margins: Jazz and the American Cinema

Product : Jammin' at the Margins: Jazz and the American Cinema
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : American cinema has long been fascinated by jazz and jazz musicians. Yet most jazz films aren't really about jazz. Rather, as Krin Gabbard shows, they create images of racial and sexual identity, many of which have become inseparable from popular notions of the music itself. In "Jammin' at the Margins," Gabbard scrutinizes these films, exploring the fundamental obsessions that American culture has brought to jazz in the cinema. Gabbard's close look at jazz film biographies, from "The Jazz Singer" to "Bird," reveals Hollywood's reluctance to acknowledge black subjectivity. Black and even white jazz artists have become vehicles for familiar Hollywood conceptions of race, gender, and sexuality. Even Scorsese's "New York, New York" and Spike Lee's "Mo' Better Blues" have failed to disentangle themselves from entrenched stereotypes and conventions. Gabbard also examines Hollywood's confrontation with jazz as an elite art form, and the role of the jazz trumpet as a crucial signifier of masculinity. Finally, he considers the acting careers of Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and Hoagy Carmichael; Duke Ellington's extraordinary work in films from 1929 until the late 1960s; and the forgotten career of Kay Kyser, star of nine Hollywood films and leader of a popular swing band. This insightful look at the marriage of jazz and film is a major contribution to film, jazz, and cultural studies.

Principles for Living: Inspiring and Motivating Stories for Overcoming Life's Storms

Product : Principles for Living: Inspiring and Motivating Stories for Overcoming Life's Storms
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ahead of us lies the future like a road stretching into the distance. Along that road are hopes and dreams we wish to accomplish, assignments we hope to finish, and goals we desire to attain. To realize our aspirations in life, we must understand that mere 'wishing' can only get us nowhere. A thorough understanding of principles that evoke a sequence of positive events in life is inevitable. Nowadays, young men and women go through life with zero morals, culture, diligence, and focus. They hope to accomplish their goals by luck or sheer stroke of coincidence. They expect everything they desire to fall into place at once. Unable to figure out why they have to endure for a while, their untamed passion for success lights up the sky with blazes of anxiety, instant achievements, and material aggrandizement. Sustained growth in life is not about big initiative, but about habits, principles, mindset, and process. Sadly today, the mainstream of people in various strata of societal divide are thrown into frenzied state of despair as a result of ignorance and total neglect of how these laws or principles work. This book is an adapted compilation of previous articles that I have written for publication in the peninsula Newspaper (an English daily newspaper in Qatar) over a two-year period. The emphasis in this book is not only on self-development, but also on spiritual illumination and progress. It offers a healthy reading for every section of our society. I wrote this book in such a reader-friendly style so that people from diverse denominational construct, religious background and social standing can easily relate with the context of the messages embedded in the stories that follow.

Key Communication Techniques for Underground Sensor Networks

Product : Key Communication Techniques for Underground Sensor Networks
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wireless Underground Sensor Networks (WUSNs) are the networks of wireless sensors that operate below the surface of the ground. The networks of wireless nodes are buried underground and communicated through soil. WUSNs can enable many novel and important applications, such as in-situ oil reservoir monitoring, concealed border patrol, underground power grid and pipelines maintenance, intelligent irrigation, earthquake and landslide forecast, mine disaster prevention and rescue, among others. Despite the potential advantages, the underground soil medium brings distinctive and significant challenges, which prevent the direct usage of most, if not all, existing communication and networking techniques. In Key Communication Techniques for Underground Sensor Networks, two enabling techniques are developed to realize reliable and efficient WUSNs, namely the EM wave-based WUSNs and the MI-based WUSNs. The monograph provides principles and guidelines for readers who are interested in WUSN designs. Specifically, for EM wave-based WUSNs, the dynamic network connectivity is first investigated based on a comprehensive channel model in the soil medium. Then, a spatio-temporal correlation-based data collection scheme is developed to reduce the sensor density while keeping high monitoring accuracy. For MI-based WUSNs, the MI waveguide technique is first developed to significantly enlarge the underground transmission range. Then, the optimal deployment algorithms are analyzed to construct the WUSNs with high reliability and low costs. Finally, the mathematical models are developed to evaluate the channel and network capacities of MI-based WUSNs. Key Communication Techniques for Underground Sensor Networks is the perfect reference for anyone interested in the research contributions, design challenges and considerable potential of WUSNs.

Post Traumatic Stress Theory: Research and Application

Product : Post Traumatic Stress Theory: Research and Application
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few phenomena are as widely experienced across different individuals, cultures, and contexts as that of traumatic stress. Whether as victims, perpetrators, supporters or simply observers, most people can identify to some extent with the psychological and physical consequences produced by traumatic events. This new text examines the nature of traumatic stress, the contexts in which it occurs, and the needs and coping strategies of its survivors. Topics include the survivors of rape, soldiers of war, and the nature of coping with loss or trauma in old age. Furthermore, the roles of culture, social support, and more formal organizations in the ongoing process of overcoming trauma are explored as the text details the nature of traumatic experiences, the needs of its survivors, and the challenges faced by those who wish to support and help those survivors.

The Concept of Political Judgment

Product : The Concept of Political Judgment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What is good political judgment? Is it a science subject to strict standards of logic and inference, or is it more like an art, the product of intuition, feeling, or even chance? Peter J. Steinberger shows how the seemingly contradictory claims of inference and intuition are reconciled in the concept of political judgment. Resting his argument on the larger notion of judgment itself, Steinberger develops an original model of how political judgments are made and how we justify calling some of them "good." His systematic analysis of such thinkers as Machiavelli, Kant, Gadamer, Wittgenstein, and Oakeshott introduces an original notion of judgment as "intelligent performance," incorporating both intuition and rational reconstruction. Steinberger's conclusion--that a coherent political society must also be a judgmental one--flies in the face of much contemporary thinking.

Mechanics of Independence: A Study in Political and Economic Transformation

Product : Mechanics of Independence: A Study in Political and Economic Transformation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : If any doubt still remains, the story of Trinidad and Tobago will dispel the last illusion that money and technical assistance alone can launch a new nation into the world community. "The Mechanics of Independence" probes the interplay of political and social factors on national development both with commitment and detachment: The author, who has been Minister of External Affairs for this newly independent nation, is also a political scientist whose perceptions have been sharpened by the demands of his office. Thus, the story of one small, one-time British colony whose history as a nation roughly parallels the UN "Decade of Development" (independence came in 1962) is presented as a case study of the probable course of events in developing countries around the world now and in the years to come.As background for reforms and a new constitution, the author traces the political development of the colony under Spanish and British imperial rule, fixing the origin and evolution of the idea that led to the rise of nationalism. Valuable and practical information, supported by charts and statistics, emerges from his account of measures devised to cope with a legacy of economic problems--the tax structure, monetary policy, and international trade arrangements among them. But inevitably he moves on to the unanswered questions for new nations, which now occupy world attention, from that of their survival in a climate of conflicting international pressures to the kind of economic aid compatible with their objectives. The dilemma is internal as well as external, the author observes, questioning the possibility of "freedom" when economic opportunity requires the destruction of traditions separating the rich from the poor, questioning even the possibility of achieving that high degree of social justice viewed so optimistically just a decade ago.

Still Life: National Gallery Pocket Guide

Product : Still Life: National Gallery Pocket Guide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Virtually everyone knows what kinds of things are represented in still life, but we all have difficulty explaining precisely what still life is. We are familiar enough with the subject matter -- flowers, fruit, vegetables, pots and pans, tableware, books, and musical instruments. Sometimes these are beautiful and ornate; often they are commonplace household items -- but it is their re-presentation in paint that makes them seem remarkable and a source of special enjoyment. In this Pocket Guide Erika Langmuir examines the special fascination of still life and what distinguishes it from other categories of painting. She discusses its evolution from the trompe I'oeil wall paintings of ancient Rome, through its revival in the age of Caravaggio and Velazquez, and again in the works of Cezanne and Picasso. The subject is more complex than it seems, going to the very heart of the relationship between art and reality and perception and representation and touching on how artists view their role in society.
