Energy: Markets and Regulation, Essays in Honor of M.A. Adelman

Product : Energy: Markets and Regulation, Essays in Honor of M.A. Adelman
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Energy: Markets and Regulation" is a valuable survey of current thinking on energy economics, focusing on the regulation of energy markets. It covers nearly every aspect of the energy sector, including both international and domestic U.S. markets in oil and coal and the particular U.S. conditions in natural gas and nuclear power. It deals with resource estimation and energy supply and demand, and environmental control. Economic and institutional analysis of current problems includes an exploration of their historical background. The thirteen original contributions are dedicated to MIT economist and energy analyst M. A. Adelman. Adelman is the dean of academic economists concerned with energy markets and the effects of government regulation. All who work and teach in this area have been influenced by his ideas and insightful analysis, and many of the chapters in the book draw on and expand his earlier work. The preface by Charles P. Kindleberger and foreword by the editors outline the subject and introduce the essays. Their authors and topics are Paul R. Carpenter, Henry D. Jacoby, and Arthur W. Wright on the evolution of U.S. natural gas markets; G. Campbell Watkins on the interaction of U.S. and Canadian oil policies; Richard L. Gordon on world coal development; Martin B. Zimmerman on the problem of nuclear power in the United States; Paul W. MacAvoy on the EPA's record in controlling industrial air pollution; Robert W. Crandall and Theodore E. Keeler on public policies concerning the private auto; Philip K. Verleger, Jr. on the evolution of oil as a commodity; Jeffrey K. MacKie-Mason and Robert S. Pindyck on the theory and experience of cartels in the international minerals markets; Paul Leo Eckbo on worldwide petroleum taxation; Zenon S. Zannetos on oil tanker markets; Gordon M. Kaufman on oil and gas supply assessment; Paul G. Bradley on mineral and petroleum exploration; and Ernst R. Berndt and David 0. Wood on the influence of energy price shocks on U.S. productivity growth. Richard L. Gordon is Professor of Mineral Economics, The Pennsylvania State University; Henry D. Jacoby is Professor of Management, MIT; and Martin B. Zimmerman is Associate Professor of Economics, University of Michigan.

The Language of Metaphors

Product : The Language of Metaphors
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this ambitious and wide-ranging text, Andrew Goatly explores the language of metaphor. Combining insights from relevance theory and functional linguistics, he provides a powerful model for understanding how metaphors work in real communicative situations, how we use them to communicate meaning as well as how we process them. Examining the distinction between literal and metaphorical language, Goatly surveys the means by which metaphors are realized in texts and locates the interpretation of metaphor in its social context. "The Language" "of Metaphors" is enlivened by the choice, variety and humor of its real examples which are taken from a wide variety of genres including conversation, popular science, advertising, news reports, novels and poetry. Supplemented with exercises and a suggested reading list, this book will provide students of language, psychology and literature with an invaluable guide to understanding precisely how metaphors function.

Principles of Abilities and Human Learning

Product : Principles of Abilities and Human Learning
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is about human abilities and the ways in which people acquire and extend them. It contains many useful facts about people's learning and the mental processes that make it possible. Chapter one looks at the kinds of events that create learning, and identifies some important general principles of human learning. Chapter two examines the capabilities that children gain in their early years. They acquire a number of basic capacities that they can draw upon throughout life. These include language, reading, and numerical abilities. The acceleration of early abilities is also considered. Chapter three raises a number of intriguing questions about abilities. What exactly are they? What are their most important charactersitics? How can different capabilities and items of knowledge become joined to one another? The answers are surprisingly different from what common sense predicts.; Chapter four Considers The Important Contributions Of Motivation. A Person Has To Have good reasons for engaging in learning activities. Motivation supplies incentives for doing whatever is necessary in order to make learning happen. Chapter five investigates more advanced attainments. It looks at the effects of practising and other ways in which individuals extend their expertise. The use of memory aids and learning techniques is examined. Other topics include the influence of intelligence, creativity, the possible roles of innate gifts and talents, and child prodigies and geniuses. The best way to apply discoveries concerning learning and the acquisition of abilities is to use them for our own daily activities. Chapter six addresses the question of how to learn and study more effectively. It introduces ways of reading more effectively, and gives advice on improving writing skills and studying for exams. The aim here is to help the reader to succeed better at gaining needed capabilities.

Product : Family and Other Strangers
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : These poems show a sensitivity that could only come from a life lived to the fullest. Poems about family, war, love and loss and a close connection to the "wild things" show clearly how the writer grapples with the secrets of life and that she has an understanding not only of obvious surface tensions, but as one poem states, of the "underside of things." Martina speaks directly to us in her poems, she does not leave us wondering, does not let us down. With an insight here and a question there, she has us reaching for her poems again and again.

Visual Media & the Humanities: A Pedagogy of Representation

Product : Visual Media & the Humanities: A Pedagogy of Representation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The proliferation of visual media and its technology--including film and television, videoconferencing and multimedia, the Internet and online communication--is transforming the way students encounter the humanities, both within and outside the classroom. These changes represent pedagogical challenges as well as new areas of content learning. In Humanities and the Visual Media, contributors from a variety of disciplines address the intersection of humanities education and the visual media in all its forms. The book begins with several essays addressing the impact of technology (including distance learning) and new modes of visual representation on pedagogical technique. Subsequent essays focus on the special uses of film and television in the teaching of writing, literary criticism, cultural studies, critical thinking, and foreign languages and culture. The contributors teach in a range of classroom environments, from Ivy League universities to community colleges. Their essays incorporate a sensitivity to the differing needs of their students and the varying levels of media literacy and technological competency among students as well as among educators. Rather than suggesting a universal pedagogy of media and technology, the authors instead share ideas about ways to incorporate the visual media into different subjects and methodologies. These essays offer diverse approaches to the visual media, including the exploration of new technologies and their usefulness to the humanities, case studies of individual texts and their visual adaptations, the development of new critical frameworks, and practical discussion of classroom techniques. These strategies will be helpful for teachers withintraditional humanities disciplines who seek to integrate visual media and technology within their courses.

Product : Navigating Treacherous Waters: A State Takeover Handbook
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At least 24 state legislatures have authorized state takeovers of local schools. This handbook assumes that state legislatures will continue endorsing takeovers as state policy, which begs an important question: how can takeovers be made effective? Garland argues that those who execute takeovers should expect a mess_racial, legal, political, and bureaucratic. This book serves as a first and chief resource for those interested in state takeovers of local school districts including a persuasive description of effective legislation, a strategy for implementation, and a comprehensive and well-researched compilation of takeover experiences. The main message is a warning that takeovers always cause turbulent waters but the author presses on to draft a strategy for more effectively navigating these waters. Will be of interest to parents, teachers, administrators, academics, students, and policymakers.

Product : Understanding Social Science Statistics: A Spreadsheet Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is designed for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, as well as for active and productive researchers who want to enhance their grasp of standard social science statistics. Topics covered include hypothesis testing, type I and II errors, simple and multiple correlation and regression, categorical variables coding, assessment of both statistical significance and the magnitude of effects, standard experimental designs, analysis of covariance, and power analysis.

The program allows for quick, hands-on analysis of realistic data using conceptually meaningful computations. As readers complete the exercises in this book they accumulate a set of spreadsheet templates that can be used with any appropriate data, creating, in effect, their own personal statistical package. Excellent for use in the classroom or as a self-study guide, this text is intended to entice the sort of student who is otherwise intimidated by statistics. The level of presentation is simple and straightforward; conceptual underpinnings and practical applications are stressed, whereas algebraic derivations and complex formulaic manipulations are avoided; and new material and ideas are presented in the context of concrete, running examples. This volume emphasizes basic statistical literacy. The level of presentation is straightforward and intended to entice the sort of student who otherwise feels intimidated by statistics. A series of integrated exercises (using a standard spreadsheet program) make it especially useful as a self-study guide for those who want to improve their statistical understanding while working at their own pace.

Product : Mudfog and Other Sketches (Dodo Press)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-1870), also known as "Boz," was the foremost English novelist of the Victorian era, as well as a vigorous social campaigner. Considered one of the English language's greatest writers, he was acclaimed for his rich storytelling and memorable characters, and achieved massive worldwide popularity in his lifetime. The popularity of his novels and short stories has meant that not one has ever gone out of print. Dickens wrote serialised novels, the usual format for fiction at the time, and each new part of his stories was eagerly anticipated by the reading public. Among his best-known works are Sketches by Boz (1836), The Pickwick Papers (1837), Oliver Twist (1838), Nicholas Nickleby (1839), Barnaby Rudge (1841), A Christmas Carol (1843), Martin Chuzzlewit (1844), David Copperfield (1850), Bleak House (1853), Little Dorrit (1857), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), Great Expectations (1861) and Our Mutual Friend (1865).

Memory's Frosted Pane

Product : Memory's Frosted Pane
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : I suspect Iave been a poet all of my life, but I didnat put down the words until the early Nineties. I have continued to do so ever since. To me, poetry is seeing the ordinary beyond the sight lines of everyday vision and putting words to the experience. This book of free verse is a compilation of those words, words that reflect an amalgam of personal experiences and professional experiences as a clinical social worker. Because the works emanate from my subjective understanding, they are unique in time and place, but they also mirror timeless universal themes such as relationships to self, others and nature; time and its ephemeral qualities; crisis and renewal; hope and courage; and the realization that all that was still is. It is my hope that you, the reader, will find your own communion with the poems so that our silent conversation may continue to be enriched.

After the War in Iraq: Defining the New Strategic Balance

Product : After the War in Iraq: Defining the New Strategic Balance
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the immediate aftermath of the war in Iraq, certain basic implications for the region are already apparent, though their intensity will become clear only in the future. The fall of Saddam's regime and Iraq's strategic decline have significantly weakened the group of radical countries in the Middle East and are likely to buttress the region's moderate states. Iraq has been stripped of its military power, including conventional and WMD capabilities, which not only limits the threat Iraq poses to the region, but may also slow down the Middle East arms race. The Iraqi crisis has illustrated again the weakness of the Arab world and its inter-state schisms, while at the same time dramatically increasing United States involvement in the Middle East. These regional ramifications of the war in Iraq launched in March 2003 by the United States are among the many perspectives examined in After the War in Iraq: Defining the New Strategic Balance. Focusing on different perspectives of the war, the fourteen essays included in the volume present concise and penetrating analyses that explore the principal strategic, political, and military contexts of the war. Researchers from the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies of Tel Aviv University have brought their expertise in international relations, political science, military and strategic studies, political psychology, international finance, and more to create a thoughtful, comprehensive analysis. Their vast experience in the military, government, and academic world has added to the insightful picture presented in this rich collection of timely and provocative essays.

Shakespeare's Proverbial Themes: A Rhetorical Context for the Sentenia as Res

Product : Shakespeare's Proverbial Themes: A Rhetorical Context for the Sentenia as Res
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This study analyzes the role of the sentenia (proverb, maxim, adage) in the rhetorical process of invention and, particularly, Shakespeare's use of the proverb as a master theme. The plays have a characteristic structure in which the thematic statement is initiated in the early scenes and then repeated, with variations, throughout. In Hamlet, for instance, the sententia "all that lives must die, passing through nature to eternity" is exemplified and concretized in scene after scene. Donker demonstrates that Shakespeare was a product of his schooling in Tudor England in which simple proverbial material was considered to be the substance of moral philosophy, the "subject" to be developed, varied, and amplified in school exercises. He was also following the dictate of Horace in Ars poetica that moral philosophy was the proper subject of the poet, that the adage was to be the theme of fiction, to be modulated in a wide range of registers and tones throughout the work, Shakespeare was using the adage as central to the process of invention. Previous scholars have analyzed the sententia as a hallmark of style in Shakespeare's plays, but not as the controlling theme. This is a well explicated argument that will be of interest and value to Shakespearean scholars and students of the history of rhetoric, with broader applications to the study of Greco-Roman and Elizabethan cultures, the history and theory of drama, and humanistic studies.

Worst Things First: The Debate Over Risk-Based National Environmental Priorities

Product : Worst Things First: The Debate Over Risk-Based National Environmental Priorities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Momentum is growing to improve the haphazard way in which America's environmental priorities are determined. Influential members of Congress and federal officials, among others, are asking whether regulators actually devote their greatest attention to problems presenting the greatest ecological and health risks. Priority-setting that is more rational and dispassionate, the argument goes, would provide the way out of the "ready, fire, aim" syndrome that characterizes a crisis-of-the-month approach. Increasingly, the technique of comparative risk assessment is advanced as the key to more efficient and sensible planning. Despite its growing popularity, however, serious doubts exist about the adequacy of risk assessment for setting priorities. Worst Things First? The Debate over Risk-Based National Environmental Priorities explores the controversy over selecting an approach to set he nation's environmental priorities. Even though broad agreement exists that change is necessary, some critics feel the scientific data-collecting procedures of risk assessment constitute an intolerable delay for addressing more obvious and urgent problems; others fear its widespread use in regulatory agencies would move Congress from the center of the advocacy process, replacing public participation with expert elitism. Additional major concerns are uncertainty (do we know a "bigger" risk when we see it?), commensurability (how can we compare cancers and whales?), and "asking the wrong questions" (is ranking problems an intellectual exercise when solutions are what the country ready needs?) Resources for the Future convened a major conference in November 1992 to present a forum where EPA could describeits current and future plans for pursuing risk-based planning and hear suggestions for improving its methods, process, and implementation. Advocates of paradigms that give risk assessment little or no role were also able to present their best argument Worst Things First? contains the papers of that important three-day meeting. As the papers reveal, participants generally agreed that several different, legitimate ways exist to target the nation's resources for environmental protection. Conferees clashed over whether these different approaches are complementary or at odds. Broad acknowledgment emerged that, despite EPA's emphasis on one particular paradigm to date, the nation is not yet ready to agree on how to set environmental priorities, let alone on what the priorities themselves should be.

Learning to Learn: A Study of Swedish Preschool Children

Product : Learning to Learn: A Study of Swedish Preschool Children
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book examines a preschool didactic approach to learning in which children become better learners than those enrolled in more traditional preschool programs. Seventy-six children in four groups were observed and interviewed over one year, during periods of ordinary teaching as well as during three teaching experiments. Two groups of children were taught according to the new didactic approach, where teachers were asked to plan their teaching according to what kind of understanding they wanted the children to develop, to find out what the children's conceptions were of the theme in question, to create situations around which children had to reflect, to make children reflect at different levels of generality, and to point out to the children the various ways of thinking around a theme. Two groups were subject to ordinary teaching. Children from the program were the better learners, i. e. they changed their way of thinking about several phenomena to a more advanced level of thinking. The conclusion is that teaching children must relate to the way reality is experienced by the children, and it must create situations where children have to think about their own learning and thinking. This is the first time a metacognitive approach has been developed for this age-group (5-6 year olds) in order to influence children's understanding of their own learning as well as their thinking about different aspects of reality. This book will be most useful to researchers, students and teachers in the field of early childhood education.

Morphology

Product : Morphology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Poetry. Art. "In the first image of Ruth Lepson and Walter Crump's MORPHOLOGY, the eye follows train tracks into a distant background of earth-meets-sky, the sky a near circle of light, presenting at the same time an enclosure and an eternity. The first text suggests a linkage of thinking and seeing: if I think it, it appears. Magic. The magic here concerns the relationship of verbal to visual, a relationship always lively, never predictable. The text is no less visual than the photographs, and at times even the letters take one's attention (and one's breath away); in the section in which it is stated that all men are pencils, two times the letter 'y' (why? Y chromosome? a leaning 'v' standing on one leaning leg? all these & more) is separated from its word and enlarged to become a visual presence, an occupier of space on the page, in the eye, in the mind...If you're looking for something, you will find it here. If you're not looking for something, you will find it here, where 'someone else is standing at the other end of that sentence,' a thought you hear while looking at a dimmed and timeless photograph of water meeting earth meeting clouds, and you gain a sense that the sentence is ongoing and connects everything that you are with everything you have seen, and that it will go on for miles and miles and miles without ending. This book is magic. I want to read it a thousand times"--Charles Alexander.

Laser-Enhanced Ionization Spectroscopy

Product : Laser-Enhanced Ionization Spectroscopy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Laser-enhanced ionization (LEI) is a type of optical spectrometry that employs photoexcitation to ionize atoms selectively. Over the past two decades, this method--originally known as the optogalvanic effect--has been the object of extensive worldwide research and the subject of numerous papers and published articles. Until now, however, no single volume has presented this wealth of theory and data in a cohesive and accessible form. Laser-Enhanced Ionization Spectrometry fills this gap in the literature. It synthesizes vast amounts of information previously available only through scattered research papers and covers every aspect of the technology, from underlying principles and theory to methodology and applications. This book examines the state of the art of LEI, compares it with other methods, and demonstrates how laser-enhanced collisional ionization is especially well suited to analytical atomic spectrometry. The contributors to this collaborative effort--from Russia, Australia, Europe, and the United States--clarify terminology, explain the inner workings of LEI, and offer derivations for both idealized forms and realistic approximations. They also analyze the capabilities and limitations of this technique as an analytical method, including instrumentation, sources of noise, limits of detection, interferences, and applications. After concentrating largely on flame LEI as the most commonly used method to derive LEI measurements, the discussion moves to the development of nonflame technologies for LEI. There is also extended coverage of the relationship between LEI and laser-induced fluorescence, including an examination of the interplay of laser-induced ionization and fluorescence techniques in different atomic and molecular reservoirs. Laser-Enhanced Ionization Spectrometry places understanding, usefulness, and practical applications ahead of detailed derivations. For practicing analytical chemists and spectroscopists, it offers a clear and uncluttered approach to a complex subject, as well as a fresh perspective on a still-emerging technology. This book sums up the present understanding and state of the art of laser-enhanced ionization (LEI)-a unique but underutilized tool for analytical atomic spectrometry. LEI possesses the special ability to ionize atoms selectively. The text focuses on the role of this technology in analytical chemistry, and covers both theory and applications in one complete, self-contained volume. Carefully crafted by leading experts from around the globe, with contributions under six key headings, Laser-Enhanced Ionization Spectrometry * Draws on hundreds of research papers to create a comprehensive reference for LEI * Describes in depth how ions are produced, and how a signal is generated and detected * Provides an extensive and up-to-date compilation of published LEI detection limits * Emphasizes basic understanding and practical applications rather than detailed derivations

Pensions, Labor, and Individual Choice

Product : Pensions, Labor, and Individual Choice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In recent years a decline in the labor force participation of older workers has combined with rapid current and projected increases in the number of older Americans, producing major policy debates over looming "crises" in social security and, to a lesser extent, in the private pension system. That private system is playing an increasing role in the support of retired workers and promises to be the subject of increasing scrutiny by economists and policymakers alike. Previous books on private pensions have largely neglected behavioral implications of the features of pension plans. The papers in this volume, developed from material presented at a recent National Bureau of Economic Research conference, address two aspects of the relation between varieties of labor coverage and participation in the labor force. First, age at retirement may be correlated with kind of pension coverage. The papers, in fact, provide strong evidence that individual decisions about when to retire are directly influenced by pension options. Second, pension plans usually impose a high cost on workers who change jobs, which suggests that pension coverage reduces instances of job change. "Pensions, Labor, and Individual Choice "quantifies these correlations and proposes a conceptual framework within which to view them.

Lake of the Prairies

Product : Lake of the Prairies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Powerful, funny, moving and personal, "Lake of the Prairies" is a richly layered exploration of the ubiquitous childhood question: where do I come from? Warren Cariou's story of origin begins in the boreal Saskatchewan landscape of rock, water and muskeg that is Meadow Lake -- ensconced in the ethos of the north, where there is magic in a story and fiction is worth much more than fact. Grounded in the fertile soil of Meadow Lake are two historical traditions -- Native and settler. Warren Cariou's maternal grandparents were European immigrants who cleared acres of dense forest and turned it into pasture. This land also held traces of centuries of Cree settlement --arrowheads, spear points and stone hammers, which Cariou stumbled upon as a boy. Though the tragic story of how these traditions came to share the same home would remain buried from Warren until much later, history's painful legacy was much in view. In the schoolyard and on the street corners Warren witnessed the discrimination, anger and fear directed at the town's Cree and Metis populations -- prejudices he absorbed as his own. As an adult, Warren Cariou has been forced to confront the politics of race in Meadow Lake. He learned that a rambunctious Native schoolmate could be involved in a torture and murder that would shock the world. And then Warren discovered family secrets kept hidden for generations, secrets that would alter forever Warren's sense of identity and belonging in Meadow Lake. In the tradition of Wallace Stegner's classic "Wolf Willow," "Lake of the Prairies" is an intimate and provocative memoir.

Gene Cloning and Manipulation

Product : Gene Cloning and Manipulation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This text gives a broad, but concise, coverage of gene cloning and manipulation, suitable for undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Assuming only general biochemical knowledge, it stresses the concepts underlying particular types of cloning vector, and uses examples to illustrate them, rather than simply presenting a mass of detailed lists and vector maps. The book starts by describing the principles behind cloning DNA in E. coli, the enzymes used, the range of cloning vectors available, and how to screen libraries to find particular clones. The author shows how PCR can be used as an alternative, or complementary, approach. He then goes on to describe how sequences can be exploited, after cloning and identification, by site-directed mutagenesis and over-expression. The book finishes with a detailed presentation of the genetic manipulation of other organisms, including other bacteria, yeast, plants, insects, and mammals.

Sisters of Liberty: Marseille, Lyon, Paris and the Reaction to a Centralized State, 1868-1871

Product : Sisters of Liberty: Marseille, Lyon, Paris and the Reaction to a Centralized State, 1868-1871
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although the Paris Commune of 1871 has been the subject of voluminous writing, especially on the place of the uprising in the development of socialist thought and practice, little was previously done on provincial communal movements. First published in 1971, this book offers an exploration of the insurrection as part of the nationwide struggle for municipal and departmental liberties, bringing to the fore the Commune's relationship to the broader historical problem of the consolidation and future character of the Third Republic, especially in the provinces. Greenberg thus sees the event as part of a long developing effort to decentralize political power in France.

A Dictionary of Art Titles: The Origins of the Names and Titles of 3,000 Works of Art

Product : A Dictionary of Art Titles: The Origins of the Names and Titles of 3,000 Works of Art
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The titles of artworks can often be misleading, and their relationship to a painting or sculpture difficult to discern. Often, a title requires previous knowledge of history, religion or mythology. Sometimes, the title reflects the ownership or history of the painting, its subjects or patrons, but does not explain them. Many titles are allusive and by their nature open ended. Finally, some titles defy all logic and seem to have little to do with the artwork. This dictionary of 3,000 works of art explains the meaning behind the titles. The titles, mostly of paintings and sculpture, but also of some less traditional media, are arranged alphabetically by original title or English title; each entry provides an English title when necessary, the artist's name, when known, the date of creation, the present location unless a work is not extant, and an explanation of the title.

Description : The world is full of germs, and news about outbreaks of infectious diseases and antibiotic-resistant superbugs is an almost daily occurrence. What can concerned parents do to protect their children? "Keeping Your Child Healthy in a Germ-Filled World" gives parents the tools and information they need to shield their kids from infections and keep their family healthy. Infections are harmful, but not all germs are bad. Dr. Athena P. Kourtis, a pediatrician and infectious disease specialist -- and a mother -- teaches parents how to protect their kids without going overboard. She helps parents sort through the latest information about germs, antibiotics, vaccines, hygiene, health foods, and home remedies and recommends what rules to follow -- and which ones to ignore. She says: - "No" to overprotecting your children from germs- "No" to antimicrobial soaps and cleaning products at home- "No" to over-prescribed antibiotics- "Yes" to strategic hand washing- "Yes" to being conscious of germs and how they replicate- "Yes" to vaccines She offers tips for protecting your children wherever they go -- at home or school, on the playground, even while traveling -- and whatever they are doing -- playing sports, camping, visiting the beach -- and answers questions that commonly worry parents. How many times should you wash prewashed spinach? (At least twice.) Does getting enough sleep help fight infection? (Yes.) Are pre-sliced foods more likely to spread infection? (They are.) Reading this comprehensive, illustrated guide is the first step to keeping your family healthy. Up-to-date, accurate information and a clear understanding of how germs and our bodies work will help you and your child stay afloat in the microbial sea.

Though he perversely pursued figurative work in the era of Abstract Expressionism, the influence of his stylized portraits of New York's artworld demimonde, as well as his unmistakable Maine landscapes, can now be seen in the work of countless younger artists. This concise and affordable publication, which showcases Katz's work from the Banca della Svizzera Italiana (BSI) collection, contains images from throughout his career. What makes this volume notable is not only the opportunity to consider these rarely-seen pieces and commissions, but also the technical and anecdotal commentary that Katz has provided for each work.

Product : The Tavern Lamps Are Burning: Literary Journeys Through Six Regions and Four Centuries of NY States
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : New York State has had its share of writers who have, at some point in their careers, taken New York as their subject. The writings compiled here by Carl Carmer, a native of New York State and one of its finest folklorists, celebrate what he calls the "undefined gleanings" of this great state, spanning four centuries and six regions of its upstate region.Carmer writes in his foreword: "I have long held that "York State" is a country, that its people have specific characteristics that make it distinctive." Tavern Lamps gives us 98 British and American authors (with a biographical listing of the authorship in the back of the book) and over 150 selections celebrating the ruch culture and heritage of the state. In the collection, we read Rudyard Kipling on Buffalo's grain elevators, Edith Wharton in the Hudson River Country, Theodore Dreiser on Owego, Herman Melville on the Erie Canal, Henry James on Saratoga, Washington Irving on Knickerbocker, Samuel L. Clemens, De Witt cLinton, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and many more. This collection, complemented by 40 paintings from the collection of the New York State Historical Association gives us upstate New York from a myriad of its inhabitants and visitors, a multi-faceted portrait of an area about which Carmer hopes "the peppered reader will be convinced that there is an over-all one of a kind nonesuchness that separates upstate from the rest of the world."

Description : For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic "The Age of Spiritual Machines," he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.

The Will to Truth, which is to tempt us to many a hazardous enterprise, the famous Truthfulness of which all philosophers have hitherto spoken with respect, what questions has this Will to Truth not laid before us What strange, perplexing, questionable questions It is already a long story; yet it seems as if it were hardly commenced. Is it any wonder if we at last grow distrustful, lose patience, and turn impatiently away? That this Sphinx teaches us at last to ask questions ourselves? WHO is it really that puts questions to us here? WHAT really is this "Will to Truth" in us? In fact we made a long halt at the question as to the origin of this Will - until at last we came to an absolute standstill before a yet more fundamental question. We inquired about the VALUE of this Will. Granted that we want the truth: WHY NOT RATHER untruth? And uncertainty? Even ignorance? The problem of the value of truth presented itself before us - or was it we who presented ourselves before the problem? Which of us is the Oedipus here? Which the Sphinx? It would seem to be a rendezvous of questions and notes of interrogation. And could it be believed that it at last seems to us as if the problem had never been propounded before, as if we were the first to discern it, get a sight of it, and RISK RAISING it? For there is risk in raising it, perhaps there is no greater risk.

Condemned to Repetition?: The Rise, Fall, and Reprise of Soviet-Russian Military Interventionism, 1973-1996

Product : Condemned to Repetition?: The Rise, Fall, and Reprise of Soviet-Russian Military Interventionism, 1973-1996
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Why did the Soviet Union use less force to preserve the Soviet empire from 1989 to 1991 than it had used in distant and impoverished Angola in 1975? This book fills a key gap in international relations theories by examining how actors' preferences and causal conceptions change as they learn from their experiences. Andrew Bennett draws on interviews and declassified Politburo documents as well as numerous public statements to establish the views of Soviet and Russian officials. He argues that Soviet leaders drew lessons from their apparent successes in Vietnam and elsewhere in the 1970s that made them more interventionist. Then, as casualties in Afghanistan mounted in the 1980s, Soviet leaders learned different lessons that led them to withdraw from regional conflicts and even to abstain from the use of force as the Soviet empire dissolved. The loss of this empire led to exaggerated fears of "domino effects" within Russia and a resurgence of interventionist views, culminating in the Russian invasion of Chechnya in 1994. Throughout this process, Soviet and Russian leaders and policy experts were divided into competing schools of thought as much by the information to which they were exposed as by their apparent material interests. This helps explain how Gorbachev and other new thinkers were able to prevail over the powerful military-party-industrial complex that had dominated Soviet politics since Stalin's time.
