Bearing Across: Studies in Literature and Science

Product : Bearing Across: Studies in Literature and Science
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Highly original and insightful, Bearing Across explores the complex interrelationships between American literature and science in the 20th century. Steven Carter begins this unprecedented work by examining the influence that science and scientific thinking has had on the creative processes of several postmodern writers. Focusing on the literary works of Charles Olson, Robert Duncan and Jack Spicer, he investigates the philosophical impact that field and quantum theories have had on these imaginative writers. The second section of the book features radical re-readings of six of Hemingway's best-known short stories as it explores the features of an epistemological model that not only inform literature and science but art and philosophy as well. Carter's interdisciplinary approach allows him to offer a unique perspective that is sure to intrigue scholars seeking an innovative approach to understanding modern literature.

Convergence or Divergence in Europe?: Growth and Business Cycles in France, Germany and Italy

Product : Convergence or Divergence in Europe?: Growth and Business Cycles in France, Germany and Italy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Against the background of the introduction of the euro in 1999, France, Germany and Italy have recently experienced higher divergence in terms of GDP growth. Indeed, there is no consensus among economists regarding the effects of monetary union, which can lead either to more specialisation as in the United States, or to increasing intra-industry trade, hence higher co-movements. Based on a set of original papers produced by a team of economists from the three main National Central Banks of the euro area, presented to an International Conference held in Paris as well as the contributions of panel of leading economists, the book analyses the latest developments in three largest European economies in a broad perspective, using modern econometric techniques. One of the conclusions is that, while business cycles are more strongly correlated across the three countries, as evidenced by the common reaction to the 2001 slowdown, the three countries still exhibit differences in terms of long term growth.

Animal Behavior and Wildlife Conservation

Product : Animal Behavior and Wildlife Conservation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Efforts to conserve wildlife populations and preserve biological diversity are often hampered by an inadequate understanding of animal behavior. How do animals react to gaps in forested lands, or to sport hunters? Do individual differences--in age, sex, size, past experience--affect how an animal reacts to a given situation? Differences in individual behavior may determine the success or failure of a conservation initiative, yet they are rarely considered when strategies and policies are developed. "Animal Behavior and Wildlife Conservation" explores how knowledge of animal behavior may help increase the effectiveness of conservation programs. The book brings together conservation biologists, wildlife managers, and academics from around the world to examine the importance of general principles, the role played by specific characteristics of different species, and the importance of considering the behavior of individuals and the strategies they adopt to maximize fitness.Each chapter begins by looking at the theoretical foundations of a topic, and follows with an exploration of its practical implications. A concluding chapter considers possible future contributions of research in animal behavior to wildlife conservation.

The National Weather Service Modernization and Associated Restructuring: A Retrospective Assessment

Product : The National Weather Service Modernization and Associated Restructuring: A Retrospective Assessment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Modernization and Associated Restructuring (MAR) of the National Weather Service (NWS) was a large and complex re-engineering of a federal agency. The process lasted a decade and cost an estimated $4.5 billion. The result was greater integration of science into weather service activities and improved outreach and coordination with users of weather information. The MAR created a new, modernized NWS, and, significantly, it created a framework that will allow the NWS to keep up with technological changes in a more evolutionary manner. The MAR was both necessary and generally well executed. However, it required revolutionary, often difficult, changes. The procurement of large, complex technical systems presented challenges in and of itself. The MAR also affected the career paths and personal lives of a large portion of the field office workforce. The MAR created a new, modernized NWS, and, significantly, it created a framework that will allow the NWS to keep up with technological changes in a more evolutionary manner. "The National Weather Service Modernization and Associated Restructuring" presents the first comprehensive assessment of the execution of the MAR and its impact on the provision of weather services in the United States. This report provides an assessment that addresses the past modernization as well as lessons learned to support future improvements to NWS capabilities.

Product : The Colour of Gold
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cree Adelaide McCauley and her two children witness the shooting of their Metis husband/ father by a crazed white miner. She attempts to nurse him back to life but he dies after several painful days. This tragedy takes place in the Robson Valley and the nearest court of justice is 300 miles away, over treacherous mountain trails, in Golden, BC. Adelaide is convinced by friends of her late husband to travel south to Golden to testify at the trial of her husband's murderer. Accompanied by her children and several other witnesses - including the accused - she makes the journey, testifies and hopes to leave. Unfortunately a mistrial is called. During the first trial, she at least has the advantage of a sympathetic interpreter, but the second trial is dominated by men who take the side of the white miner accused of the crime. Indians, particularly Indian women, are not treated with much respect. The murderer goes free and Adelaide, impatient with a white justice system she wanted no part of in the first place, disappears into the northern wilderness from which she came.

A partir del analisis de casos de empresas familiares, el autor revela las claves que garantizan el exito y las directrices que permiten obtener ventajas competitivas sobre los competidores. "Tanto en las empresas familiares exitosas como en las fracasadas buscamos demostrar la relacion que existe entre la importancia que dan los familiares a contar con gestiones solidas, reglas claras de funcionamiento y resultados economicos," senala el especialista.

European Socialism and the Conflict in Central America

Product : European Socialism and the Conflict in Central America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The crisis in Central America has afforded numerous transnational, regional, and extracontinental actors the opportunity to become involved in an area traditionally considered a reserve and special zone of influence for the United States. One notable example of this phenomenon has been the engagement of European Socialist and Social Democratic parties in the region. Their active involvement in Central American issues (and the opposition many of their leaders have expressed toward American policy in the region) has represented a significant departure for parties which have been broadly supportive of U.S. foreign policy initiatives and objectives since the late 1940s. The monograph analyzes the Central American policies and perspectives of the three European Socialist and Social Democratic parties--the Spanish PSOE, the French PS, and the West German SPD--which have been most active in the region. Chapter 1 explores the sources of European Socialist interest in Central America, seeking to place this concern in a historical context which takes into account developments both in Western Europe and in the international Social Democratic movement over the last two decades. Chapters 2 through 4 focus on the parties individually, providing case studies of the initiatives undertaken by the PSOE, PS, and SPD with respect to Central America. Each of these chapters places the Central American issue in the context of national foreign policy, assessing its relative importance and identifying those factions and personalities within each party who have shaped policy toward that region. The conclusion discusses the impact and significance of Europan Socialist engagement in Central America.

Description : From the acclaimed Booker Prize-winning author of Last Orders, this highly personal book is a singular and open-spirited account of a writer's life. In Making an Elephant, Swift brings together richly varied essays, portraits, poetry and interviews, full of insights into his passions and motivations, and wise about the friends, family and other writers who have mattered to him over the years.

There are private moments, too, with long-dead writers, as well as musings on history and memory that readers of Swift's novels will recognize and love.

It brims with charm and candour, and reveals Swift's alertness to experience and his true engagement with words.

The Liberation Movement in Russia, 1900-1905

Product : The Liberation Movement in Russia, 1900-1905
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Historians of the Russian Revolution naturally tend to concentrate their attention upon the Bolshevik 'victors' and on the Mensheyiks - ideologically the closest of their rivals, - and to neglect other political movements. For the Russian Liberals at least, Dr Galai redresses this imbalance. This book traces the nineteenth-century origins of the Liberation Movement (also known as the Liberal Movement), the social and historical conditions which led to its formation in the first years of the twentieth century, its policies, influence, initial success and ultimate failure. Against the background of the political and social crisis culminating in the 1905 Revolution, Dr Galai traces the stages by which the Liberation Movement became supreme among the forces of opposition but ultimately was defeated and disintegrated. It failed to fulfil its aim of replacing Tsarist autocracy by a constitutional-democratic regime and to demonstrate effectively that there was an alternative to the extremes of Tsarism and Bolshevism.

Product : Globalisation, Regionalism and Economic Interdependence
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How has increasing economic integration at regional and global level affected the functioning of the global economy? What are the consequences of globalisation and regionalism for world trade, production processes and domestic economies? What kind of economic adjustments do these phenomena imply in terms of factor mobility and relative costs? Globalisation, Regionalism and Economic Interdependence answers these and other questions by exploring the relationship between globalisation and regionalism from both academic and policy-making perspectives. It assesses the extent to which increased global and regional integration has changed the functioning of the world economy and analyses the implications for global trade, relocation of production, structural changes and the international transmission of shocks. With contributions from both academics and professionals, this book is an invaluable guide to the increasingly important effects of the interaction between globalisation and various different forms of regional integration.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The "new" security agenda, which has emerged fully in the post-cold war international system, forces a reconsideration of the interrelationships between the EU and NATO, the two most important institutions of European economic and military security. This book considers four issues attending enlargement that could conceivably defer or even derail the first enlargement of the EU and a second enlargement of NATO. NATO enlargement has been a relatively swift and painless process because there have been no compelling reasons not to proceed; and EU enlargement will remain a tortuous process with an uncertain outcome owing to an array of institutional, financial, and political liabilities of the accession states and constraints within the EU.

Research Review for School Leaders: Volume III

Product : Research Review for School Leaders: Volume III
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Research Review for School Leaders, Volume III" is specifically designed as a practical resource for school leaders whose schedules preclude opportunities to locate and review key research on every issue they must address. It places comprehensive, current, and accessible reviews of educational research at their fingertips, and is organized to make the research and practices it summarizes useful to them in their professional endeavors. This is the third volume of the "Review." Although the title has changed, its purpose and substance is continuous with the work of the earlier volumes. The first "Annual Review of Research for School Leaders" (1996) summarized research on the status of public schooling, interdisciplinary curriculum, and educational applications of computers. The second volume (1998) addressed the topics of middle-level education, the extracurriculum, mathematics education reform, and drop outs. The present "Volume III" offers educational leaders reviews of research on five timely educational issues: * citizenship education; * multicultural education; * gifted and talented education; * classroom assessment; and * scheduling. A basic premise of this volume is that, to make sound decisions, professionals need to be up to date on current research related to the problems with which they grapple. A second premise is that research cannot simply be imposed in a formulaic way on a local setting; the nature of the particular problem to be solved will always bear upon the relevance of research to a specific context. Thus, this volume is envisioned as a helpful resource for school leaders as they engage in important discussions of the research with teachers, school board members, parents, and other interested parties as they collaboratively seek effective resolutions to local educational problems.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Throughout history, tyrants, totalitarian states, church institutions, and democratic governments alike have banned books that challenged their assumptions or questioned their authority. Even today, attempts by school boards, local governments, and religious fanatics to restrict our freedom to read continue. The four-volume Banned Books collection focuses on more than 400 works that have been censored for their political, social, religious, or erotic content -- in the United States and around the world -- from biblical times to the present day. Works have been chosen for their literary or historical significance, including their role in the history of censorship. Most are read in middle- and high-school curricula as well as in university courses; some have been the focus of major national or international campaigns; and all were either written in English or are available in English translations. Banned Books: Literature Suppressed on Social Grounds discusses writings that have been banned over the centuries because they offended or merely ignored official truths; challenged widely held assumptions; or contained ideas or language unacceptable to a state, religious institution, or private moral watchdog. Works covered include: -- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain -- The adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll -- As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner -- Being There, Jerzy Kosinski -- Camille, Alexandre Dumas, Jr. -- The Color Purple, Alice Walker -- Deliverance, James Dickey -- East of Eden, John Steinbeck -- Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury -- A Farewell to Arms, ErnestHemingway -- Gargantua and Pantagruel, Francois Rabelais -- Howl and Other Poems, Allen Ginsberg -- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou -- Jaws, Peter Benchley -- Junky, William S.

The flavor of the original is retained by the use of iambic pentameter and rhyme, but higher flights of symbolism and poetic allusion are omitted and Elizabethan usage is stripped away altogether. Making the plays unfold as if they were novels, the books in this series are carried along by the intensity of Shakespeare's page-turning plots and the rich development of character, mood, and setting.

Passport 2 Purpose: Journeys of Self-Discovery

Product : Passport 2 Purpose: Journeys of Self-Discovery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Do you ever wonder "What do I want to do?" or "What's wrong with me?" or "Where did I go wrong?" or "Now what?" Sometimes we can feel as if we are at sea, drifting through life without direction. We tried to do everything right, but it hasn't worked out as expected. Perhaps we even achieved important goals but then found them unsatisfying or not worth the cost. Or an unexpected loss wrought havoc on our carefully laid plans.Are you searching for life's meaning and path, or feeling uprooted from home, family, marriage, or job? This book provides no answers. We believe that what you are searching for was always there, inside you, and that only you can find your personal answers. There is no easy recipe to follow. It will take time and introspection to uncover exactly who you are and were meant to become.Passport 2 Purpose is intended as a sort of guidebook on your life journey. Instead of telling you what sights to see, it leads you through short, personal explorations that will help you to better set and adjust your own course. We will guide you through discovering your hidden motivations - subconscious emotional drivers rooted in your past. Many of our instinctive reactions stem from painful experiences earlier in life, so we don't really like to bring them into conscious awareness. But growth usually comes from pain: that is when we are receptive to learning because we realize that we don't know everything. Recognizing, understanding, and managing our feelings can put us back in control of our lives.At times, life can feel like an arduous trek or an effortless voyage, but much depends on the destination, the route, and-especially-the companions you choose. And never forget that all of these are your choices We believe each person is unique, precious, worthy, and has a destiny. Find Yours

Elena is as stubborn as she was ten years ago, when their love seemed limitless--until circumstances tore them apart. Now that he's back, Matt has no intention of allowing Elena to face her troubles alone. But the passion that still burns between them is as tempting--and dangerous--as uncovering the truth.

Thanks to an ex-girlfriend who robbed him blind, and another who nearly bit off his trigger finger, he's not too high on women in general right now. Desperate for funds to refill his retirement coffers, he jumps at a very lucrative contract: to bring in the doctor who created the Tyaa plague. Except his voluptuous target doesn't behave like a criminal. Instead of rattling the bars, she accepts her fate with cool, cultured aplomb. Jynx Brennan toiled for three years to save humanity from a disease she's now blamed for creating. Since she refuses to use her psi ability as a weapon, it doesn't help her escape Never-Fail Nash. In a moment of clarity, she decides there's no point in denying herself a last fling with a living, breathing erotic fantasy. After he recovers his surprise, Nash indulges the full depth of his physical needs upon her body--often, and to their mutual pleasure. But when it leads to unexpected emotional intimacy, he finds himself willing to risk everything to break a contract that will force him to deliver her to certain execution. "Warning: This futuristic contains one bad-ass bounty hunter, a refined lady doctor, a ship with a vile history, a villain with a viler history, and a wide black leather belt, slung low."

Description : Marriage counselor Eli Fox has always been led by his commander-a persona inside his mind who speaks to him through his waking thoughts. Eli trusts his commander implicitly, for he is, and always has been, his protector and master strategist. At the historic Stoneport Institute of Psychiatry, Eli supervises psychiatric resident, Meagan Rush, as she leads sessions with troubled couples. As a cotherapy team, Eli and Meagan study intimacy between the sexes and debate the interplay of Eastern and Western psychology. But when they decide to become their own interpersonal experiment, honesty gives rise to passion and reopens childhood wounds in both of them, triggering a devastating chain of events. Worse yet, the Institute is in the midst of a takeover led by the greasy Clayton Beauregard, whose main interest is in maximizing company profits. In an effort to reduce claims, his company engages in unethical practices with innocent patients as its victims. As chaos swirls around him, Eli is forced to rely on the wisdom of his commander more than ever before. "Stoneport" is a contemporary psychological drama that shares a story of love between two psychotherapists as well as an intriguing glimpse inside the behavioral health industry.

Analysis and Synthesis of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems

Product : Analysis and Synthesis of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Embedded computer systems are now everywhere: from alarm clocks to PDAs, from mobile phones to cars, almost all the devices we use are controlled by embedded computers. An important class of embedded computer systems is that of hard real-time systems, which have to fulfill strict timing requirements. As real-time systems become more complex, they are often implemented using distributed heterogeneous architectures. Analysis and Synthesis of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems addresses the design of real-time applications implemented using distributed heterogeneous architectures. The systems are heterogeneous not only in terms of hardware components, but also in terms of communication protocols and scheduling policies. Regarding this last aspect, time-driven and event-driven systems, as well as a combination of the two, are considered. Such systems are used in many application areas like automotive electronics, real-time multimedia, avionics, medical equipment, and factory systems. The proposed analysis and synthesis techniques derive optimized implementations that fulfill the imposed design constraints. An important part of the implementation process is the synthesis of the communication infrastructure, which has a significant impact on the overall system performance and cost. Analysis and Synthesis of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems considers the mapping and scheduling tasks within an incremental design process. To reduce the time-to-market of products, the design of real-time systems seldom starts from scratch. Typically, designers start from an already existing system, running certain applications, and the design problem is to implement new functionality on top of this system. Supporting such an incremental design process provides a high degree of flexibility, and can result in important reductions of design costs. Analysis and Synthesis of Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems will be of interest to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, researchers and designers involved in the field of embedded systems.

Practical Work in School Science: Which Way Now?

Product : Practical Work in School Science: Which Way Now?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Practical work has been part of science education for just over 100 years and is accepted as an essential and exciting part of understanding this discipline. Although it can be costly and sometimes messy, it simply has to be done if students and teachers are to progress in their understanding. Schools and universities invest millions of pounds in it and the National Curriculum reveres it - but what exactly is going on in classrooms around the country and how are the leading practitioners moving with the times? This book attempts to reflect on the value and purpose of practical work as part of the scientific curriculum. Why are practical exercises so necessary and what do they contribute to the learning process? The chapters examine many issues such as: * how practical work is perceived by students and teachers * whether we will move on to the 'virtual lab' * the limitations of current 'hands-on' work and valuable alternatives to it * the connections between practical work in science education and 'authentic' science * what role experimentation plays in current educational practice. Jerry Wellington is Reader in Education at Sheffield University, and has taught science at all academic levels.
