Cultural Semiotics, Spenser, and the Captive Woman

Product : Cultural Semiotics, Spenser, and the Captive Woman
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book uses concepts from A.-J. Greimas to analyze Spenser's Shepheardes Calendar as a discourse and as a definitive text for the Elizabethan "political unconscious." It reveals, along with an explanation of the libidinal and political functioning of the Calender, an "ideologeme" widely observable in the 1580s and 1590s, that of the captive/capturing woman.

Subtypes of Learning Disabilities: Theoretical Perspectives and Research

Product : Subtypes of Learning Disabilities: Theoretical Perspectives and Research
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although experts agree that various types of learning disabilities do exist, few attempts have been made to classify learning disabled children into subtypes. The editors of this collection feel that the lack of subcategorization has frustrated previous research efforts to obtain a generalizable body of knowledge in the field. To meet this critical need for definitive information, this book presents basic reviews and theoretical approaches used to subtype learning disabled children -- ranging from a behavior genetics approach to a dimensional approach. It also demonstrates actual research methods utilizing theoretical approaches.

Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894)

Product : Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This rollicking adventure novel brings back Twain's best-loved characters -- Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and the freed slave Jim -- for a balloon trip around the world. Escaping civilization and Aunt Polly once again, this exhilarating tale of far-off exploits is, as Twain wrote, "a story that will not only interest boys but any man who has ever been a boy, which immensely enlarges the audience." Ranging from comic tall tales and bold escapades, as when Tom rescues a child from brigands, to a series of lively conversations among the three friends on topics from the Crusades and the limitations of maps, to religious toleration and racial discrimination, to the fine art of cursing, Tom Sawyer Abroad is a truly delightful book. At the same time, it is an often moving and serious story, as when the trio finds a caravan of corpses -- victims of a sandstorm -- or observes a bloody battle from the air. "There's a good deal more to Mark Twain than laughs," as Nat Hentoff observes in his thoughtful introduction. Tom Sawyer Abroad is sure to provide plenty of laughs, and a good deal more as well.

Comparative Media History: An Introduction: 1789 to the Present

Product : Comparative Media History: An Introduction: 1789 to the Present
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Comparative Media History is a unique thematic textbook which introduces students to the key ideas underpinning media development. It is an essential first step to a better understanding of both the media industry today and the way in which it evolved over time. The textbook compares developments and influences from a broad perspective, highlighting and contrasting different countries, industries and periods of history in order to encourage an understanding of cause and effect. In a style which is clear, accessible and provocative, Jane Chapman argues that most of the roots of today's media - even the globalizing impulse - lie in the late 18th and 19th centuries. The book emphasises continuity and certain decisive factors such as the social use of technology, the character of the institutions in which it is applied and the political approach of the specific countries involved. The comparative element to this book, both across countries and industries, will enable students to reflect on key issues in media studies, including those of diversity, form, method and choice, both past and present. It will become an essential text for any student of the media and its history. For more information about the book and the author, please see www.janechapman.co.uk

Description : The life and career of the Nobel Prize winning dramatist Luigi Pirandello is the subject of this important new reference companion. Designed to improve the general understanding of this major literary figure, the book focuses not only on Six Characters in Search of an Author, Pirandello's most famous work, but also on other plays, novels, short stories, and even translations of his poems. In addition to essays by some of the best-known Pirandello experts and drama scholars, the volume contains background information on Pirandello and a complete bibliography of his works and books and articles about him. Working within a structured set of categories, the contributors adopt a variety of styles in exploring significant aspects of Pirandello and his work. The six essays under Pirandello's world include his philosophy, his journey toward the modern stage, feminine conditions in his work, and his treatment of medical ethics. A section on background information includes surveys of theater in Italy before Pirandello and surrealism in his work, while the seven contributions on his plays focus on Six Characters in Search of an Author, Henry IV, and Tonight We Improvise. Subsequent sections address Pirandello's influence, his work in production, and his non-theatrical works. The book concludes with a set of three appendixes, providing a production history of Six Characters and Henry IV, a Pirandello bibliography, and a list of his publications. This major new work will be especially useful for courses in modern drama, modern literature, and Italian literature, and a significant reference tool for public, college, and university libraries.

Countryside in Trust: Land Management by Conservation, Recreation and Amenity Organisations

Product : Countryside in Trust: Land Management by Conservation, Recreation and Amenity Organisations
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The development of agriculture has caused rapid changes to the rural environment. Today, with growing awareness and concern for environmental issues, there is a movement to stem further damage to the countryside and replace some of the values which have been lost. Voluntary non-profit organisations which own and manage land for countryside conservation are playing an increasingly important role in this movement. These are called CARTs Conservation, Amenity and Recreation Trusts. Countryside in Trust explores the principles behind this movement and investigates the activities of the wide range of organisations involved, both large and small, including the National Trust, The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and the Scottish Tree Trust. The origins and experiences of CARTs are traced in a series of chapters which examine the different types of organisation, their land management activities and finances, and their close relationship with government agencies at all levels. Finally, the authors describe the role of public policy towards CARTs and assess the implications for the future. This is the first book to examine the large numbers of landholding environmental and amenity trusts in the UK, and is essential reading for students, voluntary organisations, conservation groups, land owners and local authorities.

Our Fire Survives the Storm: A Cherokee Literary History

Product : Our Fire Survives the Storm: A Cherokee Literary History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Once the most powerful indigenous nation in the southeastern United States, the Cherokees survive and thrive as a people nearly two centuries after the Trail of Tears and a hundred years after the allotment of Indian Territory. In "Our Fire Survives the Storm," Daniel Heath Justice traces the expression of Cherokee identity in that nation's literary tradition. Through cycles of war and peace, resistance and assimilation, trauma and regeneration, Cherokees have long debated what it means to be Cherokee through protest writings, memoirs, fiction, and retellings of traditional stories. Justice employs the Chickamauga consciousness of resistance and Beloved Path of engagement--theoretical approaches that have emerged out of Cherokee social history--to interpret diverse texts composed in English, a language embraced by many as a tool of both access and defiance. Justice's analysis ultimately locates the Cherokees as a people of many perspectives, many bloods, mingled into a collective sense of nationhood. Just as the oral traditions of the Cherokee people reflect the living realities and concerns of those who share them, Justice concludes, so too is their literary tradition a textual testament to Cherokee endurance and vitality. Daniel Heath Justice is assistant professor of aboriginal literatures at the University of Toronto.

System-Wide Efforts to Improve Student Achievement (PB)

Product : System-Wide Efforts to Improve Student Achievement (PB)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Strong system-wide support is increasingly being identified as playing an important role in policy efforts aimed at increasing student achievement (Hightower, Knapp, March, and McLaughlin: 2002). Yet current research often views district and other system-wide support as largely governance changes without substantive linkage to school improvement outcomes (Cuban and Usdan: 2003). In this volume we seek to deepen our understanding of the role of school districts and system-wide initiatives through a series of case studies that focus on how school districts and system-wide actors facilitate policy innovation and reform initiatives that are designed to improve student achievement. Through both quantitative and qualitative studies from diverse settings across the country, chapters in this volume examine the role of instructional technology, alternative accountability practices, management and partnership reforms, and school improvement efforts through new incentive and support practices. While challenges remain, these case studies demonstrate how districts support and facilitate school change aimed at improving student achievement.

Description : This deeply informed text sets the government and politics of Britain firmly in the context of Britain's enduring membership in the European Union. Michael Mannin thoroughly applies the concept of _Europeanization_ across the political system to explore how far change is a product of Britain's interdependent relationship with the EU. He shows how the EU's treaty relationships present new challenges to sovereign states, especially Britain, whose psyche has long revolved around iconic notions of Parliamentary sovereignty, imperial power, national independence, and an assumed cultural homogeneity.

Latin American Economic Outlook 2011: How Middle-Class Is Latin America?

Product : Latin American Economic Outlook 2011: How Middle-Class Is Latin America?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This year's Latin American Economic Outlook focuses on those in the middle of the income distribution in Latin America. If these middle sectors have stable employment and reasonably robust incomes, then, arguably, they provide a solid foundation for economic progress. Moreover, following the political role often attributed to the middle classes by historians and sociologists, they might also support moderate but progressive political platforms in Latin America's democracies. In fact, this report shows that, contrary to expectations, in Latin America this group is still economically vulnerable, few have university degrees and many work in informal employment. This is a "middle class" quite different from the group that became the engine of development in many OECD countries. In Latin America, what are the economic characteristics of these vulnerable middle sectors? How do they perceive inequality, public policies and democracy? How can public policies protect the livelihoods of these middle-sector households? These questions guide the Outlook to discuss why and how upward mobility should and can be promoted, and how safety nets can be put in place to protect the most vulnerable segments of people within those middle-income groups, as well as the poorest and most disadvantaged households in the economy at large. The report tackles policies such as social protection and education that promote upward mobility, and underscores the importance of fiscal policy as a tool to finance the required reforms and programmes that can engage the Latin American middle sectors in a renewed social contract."Latin America is undergoing a rapid transformation and the middle classes are one of the most powerful motors of this change. This edition of the Latin American Economic Outlook analyses the process of expansion of the region's middle sectors through innovative statistical methods and from a refreshing perspective. The middle classes are dynamic but also vulnerable; they are not poor but they are nevertheless far from enjoying a comfortable and secure economic situation. Their future depends on their own actions, and on the economic and social policies that the region's governments will adopt over the next decade." Eduardo Lora, Chief Economist, Inter-American Development Bank."This new report from the OECD Development Centre touches upon a theme that is not often studied but which is of vital importance for the development of our countries: middle-income groups in Latin American societies. The report's recommendations should be used as a basis for economic policy in the region, with the objective of promoting policy actions in favour of a sector that in advanced economies has been a pillar of development and democratic harmony - in contrast to what has happened in Latin America and the Caribbean." Juan Temistocles Montas, Minister of Economy and Planning, Dominican Republic."This excellent report leads us to conclude that only

Beyond the Natural Body: An Archaeology of Sex Hormones

Product : Beyond the Natural Body: An Archaeology of Sex Hormones
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Beyond the Natural Body" presents an episode in the history of life sciences that is essential to our current understanding of sex and the body and the relations between gender and science. Since the early decades of this century, the notion of the hormonally-constructed body has become the dominant mode of conceptualizing bodies, particularly female bodies, to such an extent that we now assume that it is a natural phenomenon. This book challenges the idea that there is such as thing as a "natural" body, and demonstrates that it is the process by which scientific claims achieve universal status that constructs such discourses as natural facts. "Beyond the Natural Body" tells the fascinating story of scientists' search for the many tons of ovaries, testes and urine that were required in experiments to develop the hormonal body concept. It traces the origins of sex hormones and follows their development through mass-production as drugs to their eventual transformation into the contraceptive pill. Nelly Oudshoorn argues that the power to control sex and the body is not restricted to the domain of texts and ideologies. In addition, she discusses the chasm that exists between the scientific ideal of universal knowledge and the feminist recognition of cross-cultural differences among women, making the case for localized and user-specific applications of science and technology.

Sickness, Disability and Work: Breaking the Barriers: A Synthesis of Findings Across OECD Countries

Product : Sickness, Disability and Work: Breaking the Barriers: A Synthesis of Findings Across OECD Countries
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Too many workers leave the labour market permanently due to health problems or disability, and too few people with reduced work capacity manage to remain in employment. This is a social and economic tragedy common to virtually all OECD countries. It also raises an apparent paradox that needs explaining: Why is it that the average health status is improving, yet large numbers of people of working age are leaving the workforce to rely on long-term sickness and disability benefits? This report, the last in the OECD series Sickness, Disability and Work: Breaking the Barriers, synthesises the project's findings and explores the possible factors behind the paradox described above. It highlights the roles of institutions and policies and concludes that higher expectations and better incentives for the main actors - workers, employers, doctors, public agencies and service providers - are crucial. Based on a review of good and bad practices across OECD countries, this report suggests a series of major reforms are needed to promote employment of people with health problems.The report examines a number of critical policy choices between: tightening inflows and raising outflows from disability benefit, and promoting job retention and new hiring of people with health problems. It questions the need for distinguishing unemployment and disability as two distinct contingencies, emphasises the need for a better evidence base, and underlines the challenges for policy implementation.

Queer Mythologies: The Original Stageplays of Pam Gems

Product : Queer Mythologies: The Original Stageplays of Pam Gems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book on Gems has a thesis or a 'backbone' which elicits the title "Queer Mythologies." Pam Gems has written over 25 plays, and has not had adequate detailed analysis of her plays to date. She is a popular playwright produced often at the West End and has a widespread appeal by being on the pulse of cultural iconology. Gems writes strong central characters for both male and female actors, and often writes almost cinematically, with time shifts in a non-linear narrativization. Her characters are metaphors for contemporary women and men and she often herstoricizes, thus righting the balance of dramatic history by creating parts for women in British drama. Her dramaturgy brings to the mainstream theatre the identities and subcultures of class, race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality making her plays queer mythologies.

Mothering, Education, and Ethnicity: The Transformation of Japanese American Culture

Product : Mothering, Education, and Ethnicity: The Transformation of Japanese American Culture
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This postmodern feminist study explores changes in Japanese American women's perspectives on child rearing, education, and ethnicity across three generations-Nisei (second), Sansei (third), and Yonsei (fourth). Shifts in socio-political and cultural milieu have influenced the construction of racial and ethnic identities; Nisei women survived internment before relocating to the midwest, Sansei women grew up in white suburban communities, while Yonsei women grew up in a culture increasingly attuned toward multiculturalism. In contrast to the historical focus on Japanese American communities in California and Hawaii, this study explores the transformation of ethnic culture in the midwest. Midwestern Japanese American women found themselves removed from large ethnic communities, and the development of their identities and culture provides valuable insight into the experience of a group of Asian minorities in the heartland. The book explores central issues in studies of Japanese culture, the Japanese sense of self, and the Japanese family, including amae (mother-child dependency relationship), gambare (perseverance), and gaman (endurance).

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Has your ship come in? The author of this workbook felt that there were more people in this world trying to make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck than what statistics were saying. She refers to them as "closet budgeters." How many of us really would admit to others that we are having financial difficulties? Your personal household finances are not a normal topic of conversation. In the world of keeping up with the Joneses, she took it upon herself to try to tutor others in what she had discovered to be a simple process to be proactive to their financial needs rather than being reactive after the fact. She felt no one should have to follow the "Joneses'," after all, the Jones's way may not be for everyone. A true believer that Social Security will not be available for her and her husband, she sought out other options to ensure her family's future would be financially healthy. Thus "Money Tutor, LLC" was born to help others achieve a better quality of life with a "Sailing through Life" approach.

Caring for Cambodian Americans: A Multidisciplinary Resource for the Helping Professions

Product : Caring for Cambodian Americans: A Multidisciplinary Resource for the Helping Professions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This comprehensive compilation of information on virtually every aspect of Cambodian culture is a practical resource for health care and social service providers, hospitals, agencies, and students of intercultural studies. Comparatively researched in rural Cambodian villages and among refugees in the United States, this work is unique in its scope and detail about this American subculture. Significant challenges to traditional attitudes, beliefs, values, and expectations impact Cambodian refugees differentially according to generation, former family situation, and opportunities or barriers experienced in the United States. The horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime are reflected in Cambodians' frequent inability to adapt successfully to an alien environment. This work highlights the dynamic but stressful transitions currently experienced by this resilient people. The book first explores the Cambodian religious spectrum both in Cambodia and in the United States, and provides insight into values, ethics, norms, affect, etiquette, and a framework for negotiating ethical issues. It also illuminates everyday life and life passages, including language use, habitat, family structure and roles, hygiene and grooming, child and adolescent development, courtship and marriage, and issues at the end of life. A section is devoted to health issues, describing traditional healing techniques and Cambodian attitudes about biomedicine both in Cambodia and in the United States. Findings from the medical literature are also summarized. The work also features chapters on finding and effectively using interpreters and conducting an adequate cultural assessment. An appendix provides specific need to know areas for nine professional groups.

Getting Results with the Object-Oriented Enterprise Model

Product : Getting Results with the Object-Oriented Enterprise Model
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Enterprise modeling is the primary tool used in business re-engineering. Historically, the number one problem with enterprise modeling has been the lack of formalism. Getting Results with the Object-Oriented Enterprise Model tackles this dilemma head-on and prescribes a formal methodology based on object technology. This book will help create a reliable enterprise model by assessing the enterprise's current operations as well as its future operations. Developing the model within the context of object-orientation will provide an ideal framework as each object will represent a behavior that is analogous to the issues addressed within the model and the enterprise itself. Getting Results with the Object-Oriented Enterprise Model will then help the reader prioritize and execute the changes suggested by the model. The authors synthesize paradigms from conceptual modeling, information theory, computer theory and business theory to develop a comprehensive and formal description of the enterprise that works. By combining their considerable expertise in both IT and business theory, the authors are able to define the rigorous methodology needed to successfully model any enterprise.

All Work & All Play: A Life in the Outrageous World of Sports

Product : All Work & All Play: A Life in the Outrageous World of Sports
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Have you ever had a friend, or a colleague at work, that you could listen to all day long? One who sees life as an anecdote, who finds a story in everything, who speaks with such unbridled passion, and sometimes crazy enthusiasm, that you don't want to miss a single syllable of their stream of consciousness? That's what it was like to work with or around Jim. We had a front seat on a most enjoyable class act, but we may not have taken the time to appreciate everything about him: where he has been, to whom he has spoken, the way in which he relates the tales that have been his life....We know the stories, he lived them." -- "From the Foreword, by Steve Simmons, Columnist, the Toronto Sun" Jim "Shaky" Hunt is one of Canada's best-known and most revered sports reporters. In his fifty years of sports journalism, he has covered everything from boxing to baseball, hockey, golf, and the Olympics. He has been arrested in the line of duty, interviewed a talking horse, and is a veteran of over fifty consecutive Grey Cup games. Hunt had to pinch himself often to see if the life he was living was all a dream. His work was play and his play was work. And all of it was fun. "All Work and All Play" is Jim Hunt's colourful, rollicking memoir of a life lived in the outrageous world of sports. Written in his inimitable voice, it is entertaining, funny, insightful, and sprinkled with stories of some of the best-known names in sports, including Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe, Wayne Gretzky, Jackie Robinson, Jessie Owens, Jack Dempsey, Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods, and many more. From "the most unusual interview" he ever conducted, with the young Muhammad Ali; to covering the legendary 1972 hockey series between Canada and the USSR; and sparring with the infamous Harold Ballard, Hunt takes us behind the scenes and right into the wild world of sports.

Promoting Sustainable Economies in the Balkans: Independent Task Force Report

Product : Promoting Sustainable Economies in the Balkans: Independent Task Force Report
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Less than four years after brutal civil war in Bosnia, the Balkans again erupted in violence during the Kosovo conflict, severely damaging already fragile, regional economies. This task force report recognizes that, while economic reconstruction alone will not be sufficient to bring long-term peace and stability to the region, rising living standards could foster sustainable economic growth and reduced political tensions. Among the reports conclusions are the impending donor fatigue, which will lead the international community to turn its focus away from the region, and the difficulties and necessity of internal reform, without which foreign financial assistance will be of only limited utility. Bringing together top executives in private investment firms, renowned scholars, leaders in the nonprofit field, and key government officials, the report synthesizes the views of all the players involved in economic development. The result is a balanced assessment of what both the international community and the Balkan countries must do to build sustainable economies in the region.

The Real Worlds of Canadian Politics: Cases in Process and Policy

Product : The Real Worlds of Canadian Politics: Cases in Process and Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Fifteen years ago the first edition of "The Real Worlds of Canadian Politics" was published to wide acclaim in university classrooms across the country. Its case study approach to Canadian politics and public policy was a unique contribution, and its enormous popularity resulted in two more editions in the following five years. In all three editions, interesting and compelling contemporary cases presented policy issues in a deliberately dramatic narrative style, emphasizing the passions, personalities, and unpredictability of Canadian politics. "Real Worlds" was a widely read companion volume to more traditional textbooks, illustrating the "real worlds" of Canadian politics while offering students opportunities for discussion and debate. This new edition of "The Real Worlds of Canadian Politics" renews this tradition and the case study approach established by the earlier editions. It zeroes in on five key areas of policy activity at the federal level during the late stages of the Chretien government and the beginning of the Paul Martin era. The volume considers the political and policy implications of deregulation in two vital industries -- airlines and banking -- whose claims that "bigger is better" in the globalized environment defied the general political desire for increased competition. And the hard politics of trade that have dogged governments since the Free Trade Agreement was signed is covered in a case study of the controversial Canada-US softwood lumber dispute. Highly charged and emotional issues that defy easy or traditional solutions are also addressed, such as those affecting First Nations and women. Case studies examine the real worlds of First Nations land claims as illustrated in one of the most dramatic accomplishments to date -- the Nisga'a settlement -- and the explosive issue of gun control after the Montreal massacre. The fourth edition of "The Real Worlds of Canadian Politics" is a collaborative enterprise, combining an editorial team and a superb research group comprising Karen Lochead, Andrea Migone, and Russell Williams of Simon Fraser University, and Samuel Bottomley of Carleton University.

AIDS in Nepal

Product : AIDS in Nepal
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1993, the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR) began a three-year, community-based AIDS prevention program in 17 sites scattered throughout the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, with the objective of enabling people to protect themselves and their sexual partners against HIV/AIDS through information, education, and access to means of prevention. The program also aimed to reduce people's individual and collective vulnerability to HIV/AIDS through the teaching of literacy and other sklls needed for alternate income generation. In AIDS in Nepal: Communities Confronting An Emerging Epidemic, Jill Hannum presents the voices of people who are at the forefront of the response to HIV/AIDS in Nepal. She reveals the many discoveries that the community-based organizations made through their interaction with young people and adults across the country, as they opened a dialogue on sexuality and disseminated information on safer sexual behavior in culturally appropriate ways. This book is a powerful resource for individuals and organizations concerned with community-based health and social development programs, both within and outside Nepal. It carries a message of hope as communities and those who support them demonstrate how they can respond effectively to an emerging epidemic.

His work was displayed to great effect in the 1997 "Comme des Garcons" collection -- where designer Rei Kawakubo attached bulging pads to dresses (dubbed "collection Quasimodo"). Thus, the title, Professional Deformation, is apt indeed.

Small Business Policy and the American Creed

Product : Small Business Policy and the American Creed
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Sandra M. Anglund examines the American national government's small business assistance policy from the passage of the Small Business Act of 1953 onward. She traces the heritage of the policy and shows how American core values, those often referred to as the American Creed, contributed to shaping that policy. Anglund points out that the American national government is in the business of promoting small business. Government agencies help entrepreneurs develop small businesses through a wide range of programs providing financial assistance such as loans, government contract assistance including set-asides, and management and technical support. Unlike government programs for farmers and big businesses, which are usually invisible to the citizenry, small business aid programs are extremely and intentionally visible. Congress declared the policy of aiding small business and launched the contemporary era of small business assistance programs in the Small Business Act of 1953. In this study, Anglund traces the heritage of the Small Business Act, probes influences on small business and enactments of the 1953-1997 period, and show how American core values, those often referred to as the American Creed, contributed to shaping small business policy and to the support it received. Scholars, students, and researchers involved with public policy, political culture, business politics and history, and economic development will find this study of particular interest.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Cinema of Robert Lepage" is the first critical study of one of the most striking artists of Quebecois and Canadian independent filmmaking. The book examines Lepage's creative methods of filmmaking in their cultural and social context and argues that his work cannot be seen separately from his oeuvre as a multidisciplinary artist. Further, this study demonstrates that like Jean Cocteau, Mike Leigh, and Alain Resnais, Lepage is a multifaceted artist who works with a group of actors on very personal themes, building his films, such as "Le Confessionnal" and "Possible Worlds," during months or years of a perpetual rehearsal process; thus it challenges the notions that Lepage should be considered only in the terms of Quebecois film tradition. The author explores such themes with Lepage in a new exclusive and detailed interview.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Nuclear Muse urges its readers to cross the boundary between the humanities and the sciences. John Canaday dives deep into the volumes of discourse involved in the construction of the first atomic bombs in Los Alamos, New Mexico, to discover the role rhetoric plays in the formulation and expression of scientific ideas. Using techniques of literary criticism, Canaday analyzes a variety of texts produced by physicists before, during, and after the Second World War. These include Niels Bohr's presentations of complementarity in "The Quantum Postulate"; the Blegdamsvej Faust, a dramatic production in which a group of physicists rewrote Goethe's Faust with themselves as the main characters; The Los Alamos Primer, the technical lectures used for training newcomers to Los Alamos; the Los Alamos scientists' descriptions of their work and of the Trinity test; and Leo Szilard's post-war novella, The Voice of the Dolphins. By refusing to give in to the common notion that science is a language foreign to non-scientists, The Nuclear Muse offers new insights into the methods of nuclear physics and underscores the relation of physics to other social forms of knowledge.

Description : Sculthorpe is one of Australia's most prominent composers and is among the most important composers on the international scene. Although he is a distinguished academic and popular lecturer, Sculthorpe does not fit any ready-made category of composer or teacher. In a body of work that so far includes orchestral and chamber music in many genres and mediums, opera and other theater music, songs and choral music, and music for documentary and commercial films, radio, and television, he has established a personal musical style and public presence that have shaped the history of 20th-century music in Australia and the world. Owing to circumstances of place and time--Australia in the 20th century--he has been defining, or redefining, the role of composer for himself and his audiences. This book is a record of Sculthorpe's work and of its reception by composer colleagues, performers, critics, and audiences.

El Anatomista = The Anatomist

Product : El Anatomista = The Anatomist
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The sensational #1 bestseller from Argentina comes to America with a dash of period detail and a twist of eroticism -- and intoxicating blend that is sure to be the toast of the literary season. Published to critical acclaim in his native Argentina, Federico Andahazi's "The Anatomist" instantly transports readers to Venice in the sixteenth century. For it is in that place and time that the anatomist, Mateo Colon, is on the verge of making a most earthshaking discovery: the center of the female's erotic universe. Colon has always thought of himself as a man of science and reason in all age of stubborn superstition. But even he is tempted to alchemy when he faces the age-old problem that could defeat the greatest of male minds: how to make a woman deeply, deliciously happy. When an encounter with a beautiful, ailing patient leads to his astonishing discovery, Colon realizes that this "sweet newly found land" is indeed the key to the intimate mystery of feminine pleasure. His sudden, skillful knowledge wins him the attention of Mona Sophia, the loveliest prostitute in all of Venice... and of the authorities, who soon bring the wrath of the Inquisition upon his head. Calling to mind the lush historical scope of Umberto Eco and the earthy wit and sensuality of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "The Anatomist" is now available in America. In prose as delicate and flowing as a satin slip, Federico Andahazi takes readers on a provocative journey and reminds them of the territory that can never be completely conquered, whose exploration and discovery provide an endlessly renewable delight.

Description : Financial analysis, based on ratio analysis, has been used as a tool for analyzing the financial strength of corporations. Although ratio analysis is generally used as a univariate strategy, the accounting and finance literature has evolved to include multivariate-based models in financial analysis, and these models can be used to explain important economic events and often predict them. Thus, in an exhaustive coverage of the economic events to which they can be applied, Riahi-Belkaoui discusses these models in a way that will have special value to corporate management, financial planners, and to their colleagues in the academic community who specialize in business and economic analysis.

Inside Out

Product : Inside Out
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Inside Out is a fast-moving story filled with surprises, biting humor, and the manipulations of a breakaway member in a fabulously oil-rich royal Middle Eastern family. In this noveau politique, Lawrence Dallek, a freelance writer, is sent on assignment to Las Vegas to study the locality. Exactly who hired him and to what end is not immediately clear but the pay is more than adequate. In Las Vegas he is introduced to "Jimmy," an Arab prince well spoken in English who can pontificate on Moslem teachings as easily as he can lay out plans to buy out American casinos. The U.S. State Department assigns a young woman to protect him from being assassinated while on U.S. soil. Caught between the rival factions of Moslems who disapprove of the proposed investment in vice and local toughs who don't want to give up the mob stronghold on Las Vegas, Lawrence Dallek is kidnapped in Las Vegas, marooned in a pleasure boat on Lake Meade, swimming through frigid waters, and faces a good bashing from the local mob anxious to maintain their hold against the raging tide of Arab wealth. He unwittingly finds himself becoming their "front man." A campaign of ferocious resistance follows from both the Wahabist members of the royal family and an existing power structure in Las Vegas desperate to preserve their exclusive turf.

Poems of Life

Product : Poems of Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : These poems were written by a retired physician who had never had any experience as a professional writer. He had always had a love of poetry, but didn't have the time to pursue this endeavor. He learned early on that he had an aptitude for poetic writing. He was encouraged by his wife and many close friends who read some of his first poems. These poems cover a large range of events which could be encountered in life. The poems are encompassing enough that people from many cultural and ethnic backgrounds should be able to find them quite interesting. They are not based in totality on any specific occurrences which the author encountered. His life as an Afro- American, growing up in the South during the era of Segregation and during the Great Depression did have a great influence on his writing.

Fundamentals of Business Marketing Research

Product : Fundamentals of Business Marketing Research
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Get a thorough review of vital research issues Fundamentals of Business Marketing Research examines recent industrial/business research, evaluates its current effectiveness, and offers suggestions for future use. This unique book includes and is based on "Business Marketing: A Twenty Year Review," a thorough study of industrial/business research from 1978-1997 with critical commentary from a distinguished panel of business academics and the response of the study's authors. The combination of critiques, insights, and viewpoints will challenge you to think beyond the traditional role of B2B marketing into a future that's anything but business as usual. Through an unusual format that gives you access to critical academic analysis, Fundamentals of Business Marketing Research presents a comprehensive review of vital research areas, including marketing to businesses/institutions/governments; buyer-seller relationships; computer use for business marketing; industrial segmentation; channel management and development; physical distribution; advertising; and public relations. The book's give-and-take is equally focused on areas that have traditionally received a larger share of the research effort (organizational buyer behavior, business marketing strategy and planning, industrial selling and sales management) and those that have taken a back seat in terms of research attention (computers and ethical business marketing). The original study, its criticisms, and the authors' subsequent assessment spotlight major themes, individual contributions, and future trends in major topic areas, including: business marketing strategy organizational buying behavior and purchasing management business marketing research methodology products/services pricing management issues distribution/logistics and supply chain management promotion Fundamentals of Business Marketing Research is equally effective as a practical guide for professionals and researchers, and as an academic text for doctoral studies.

The Economics of Industrial Location: A Logistics-Costs Approach

Product : The Economics of Industrial Location: A Logistics-Costs Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book explores the relationship between the location of the firm, the location of its markets and suppliers, and the inventory holding behaviour of the firm. Space costs and time costs are manifested in inventory costs. The examination of these inventory costs allows new insights into the reasons for observed industrial location behaviour. In particular, we see that transport costs are only a small part of total distance costs, and that the values of the goods being shipped and the value-added by the firm, are crucial location determinants. This approach is then extended to an analysis of Just-In-Time (JIT) production.

Product : Competition and Ownership in Land Passenger Transport: Selected Papers from the 8th International Conference (Thredbo 8), Rio de J
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1989 the late Prof Michael Beesley and Prof David Hensher convened a workshop of an invitational group of academics, transport operators and government regulators to review and report on the recent reforms in the British bus sector. The workshop was held in Thredbo, Australia. At the time this was a once off activity. Its success was such that it spawned a series of biannual conferences (now known as the Thredbo series) held in Finland (1991), Canada (1993), New Zealand (1995), England (1997), South Africa (1999), Norway (2001), Brasil (2003) and Portugal (2005). The conference series attracts a unique mix of researchers and practitioners with the common aim to share their experiences throughout the world on topics related to the institutional reform of land passenger transport (especially bus, rail and ferry). The focus is on workshops and plenary sessions in which participants are engaged in intense discussions that lead to the production of workshop reports that set the agenda for reform for the next period between the conferences. In the past workshop reports have been published in a major international journal and selected papers in special issues of journals. The growing number of citations of the material from the thredbo series has motivated this book, providing an opportunity to bring together in one volume the best papers from the conference plus the workshop reports. All chapters have been peer refereed. The themes in this volume (the first in a new series) include competition and regulation, contract specifications (especially performance-based contracts), regulatory and planning tools, institutional frameworks, service quality and pricing and performance data andmeasurement. Within one volume we provide a comprehensive update and review of the reform programs throughout the world in the land passenger transport sector. The Volume is edited by Professor David Hensher, co-founder of the series and a recognized world authority in the field. * The most current global assessment of reforms in land passenger transport * Papers written by those who influence policy and institutional reform in over 20 countries * A comprehensive statement of the successes and failures in public transport reform * Many of the authors are regarded as the leading authorities in the field * The case studies throughout the world are not available in any other single source

Health Related Counseling with Families of Diverse Cultures: Family, Health, and Cultural Competencies

Product : Health Related Counseling with Families of Diverse Cultures: Family, Health, and Cultural Competencies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume focuses on the necessity of family health counseling in providing effective, efficient health care in our technologically advanced, diverse, and complex society. Clinicians must have a broad understanding of all factors that affect individuals and families at all levels to provide culturally competent, collaborative care. Theoretical framework/paradigms are presented that guide clinical practice. A postmodern perspective provides skills for dialogical conversations and collaborative relationships with families. The book widens the health-care perspective by providing a foundational view incorporating both the family within its cultural/ethnic context and the multiple systems with which they interact as resources for health. The goal is to provide a foundation in the concepts and skills of health-related counseling with families from diverse cultures, to learn how these concepts are used in clinical practice, to learn how to work with families and communities during and after disasters, and to see how these concepts affect political decisions at the local, state, and federal level, as well as how these concepts drive family social policy or predict the future of family health care. The book also provides information on common psychiatric medications, the types, ranges, uses, side effects, interactions with other drugs, effects on counseling, and the collaboration needed among health professionals. This will be a valuable resource for those in the fields of counseling, clinical and family psychology, family therapy, psychiatry, family and primary-care medicine, social work and nursing.

Pleasure, Preference and Value: Studies in Philosophical Aesthetics

Product : Pleasure, Preference and Value: Studies in Philosophical Aesthetics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Philosophical aesthetics is an area in which many strands of contemporary philosophical thinking meet. The contributors to this volume are aware of the wider logical, epistemological, moral and metaphysical implications raised by conceptual problems specific to aesthetics. Three themes recur and are taken up from different angles in several of the papers: pleasure - its nature and role in the experience of art and beauty; preference - figuring prominently in aesthetic appraising, appreciating and judging; and value - aesthetic value in particular, and the status of value in general. As these themes interweave, the complexities of aesthetics bring into focus some of the central issues in the philosophy of mind. The authors argue their cases with professional expertise and perceptive understanding of the arts, making significant and original contributions. This book should be of interest not only to philosophers but also to the readers who know, care and theorise about the arts. All the essays were commissioned for this volume, which is part of an informal series of books emerging from meetings sponsored by the Thyssen Foundation.

A Word That Sets Free: First Lesson Sermons for Sundays After Pentecost (Last Third) Cycle C

Product : A Word That Sets Free: First Lesson Sermons for Sundays After Pentecost (Last Third) Cycle C
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Inspired by the heritage of African-American churches, Mark Ellingsen has created innovative, visionary sermons on Old Testament texts from the Revised Common Lectionary. His messages reflect his unique vantage point as a Lutheran of Norwegian heritage teaching at a historically black seminary, and they are a model for anyone who wants to learn how to relate the Bible to the cutting-edge social issues of our day. Ellingsen suggests that many American Christians have abdicated their responsibility to advocate justice in our society or to talk about what the gospel can do in our lives and society as a whole from Monday through Saturday. Ellingsen believes these Old Testament texts are relevant to our contemporary lives. An all-too-common view of many Christians is look to the New Testament to find the liberating word of God, while viewing the Old Testament as being about the law and the confining demands of tradition. But Ellingsen says that the history of Christianity proves this is not true. He observes that Martin Luther was primarily an Old Testament scholar, and that African-American churches have based many of their traditions of liberation on Old Testament stories and prophetic traditions. "Mark Ellingsen's offering of sermons based on Old Testament texts reflects his usual thorough biblical scholarship and his readable, down-to-earth style that consistently render his material useful to both scholars and those seeking the inspiration of a faithful Christian." Richard H. Stough, Publisher King Publications Mark Ellingsen has had a rich and varied career as a parish pastor and a seminary professor. In addition to serving several Lutheran congregations in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, he has held teaching positions at Luther-Northwestern Seminary and the Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg, France. Ellingsen currently is on the faculty of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, the largest historic African-American seminary in the United States. A regular contributor to several homiletics periodicals, Ellingsen is also the author of ten books, some of which have been used as homiletics texts in many American and Canadian seminaries.

Sensory Research Pod

Product : Sensory Research Pod
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume is a record of the proceedings of a festspiel held to honor Jozef F. Zwislocki for his outstanding contributions to science and to Syracuse University. His contributions to the knowledge of the hydromechanical, neurophysiological, and perceptual mechanisms of the auditory system are truly monumental. In addition, his contributions to the comprehension of the mammalian auditory system include not only landmark ideas, but also many of the experimental findings in psychoacoustics and peripheral auditory physiology that constitute the database which has provided a springboard for research in laboratories throughout the world. His efforts to link physics, biology, and psychophysics to create a basis for our understanding of the nervous system have had an influence that extends far beyond the science of acoustics. Although the purpose of this conference was to recognize the many achievements of Professor Zwislocki, the spirit of the participants was to honor him in a manner that best characterized his lifetime dedication to research, that is, to report the results of their own work. Consequently, this volume is first and foremost a compilation of scientific papers in the area of sensory research. Some are reports of recent experiments and some present an overview of research efforts extending from the past up to ongoing work. His influence can be recognized in all of the contributions and some explicitly describe the ties between their own work and the germinal ideas planted by him. This volume, in reflecting the rapid progress being made in sensory science and written by those who are making it, is a fitting tribute to Zwislocki, who always stood at the forefront of his science.

Spider's House

Product : Spider's House
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Set in Fez, Morocco, during that country's 1954 nationalist uprising, "The Spider's House" is perhaps Paul Bowles's most beautifully subtle novel, richly descriptive of its setting and uncompromising in its characterizations. Exploring once again the dilemma of the outsider in an alien society, and the gap in understanding between cultures--recurrent themes of Paul Bowles's writings--"The Spider's House" is dramatic, brutally honest, and shockingly relevant to today's political situation in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Indians, Markets, and Rainforests: Theoretical, Comparative, and Quantitative Explorations in the Neotropics

Product : Indians, Markets, and Rainforests: Theoretical, Comparative, and Quantitative Explorations in the Neotropics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book addresses two important and related questions: does participation in a market economy help or hurt indigenous peoples and how does it affect the conservation of tropical rainforest flora and fauna? Oddly, there have been few quantitative studies that have addressed these issues. Ricardo Godoy's research takes an important step toward rectifying this oversight by investigating five different lowland Amerindian societies of tropical Latin America -- all of which are experiencing deep changes as they modernize. Godoy examines the effect of markets on a broad range of areas including health, conservation of flora and fauna, leisure, folk knowledge, reciprocity, and private time preference. He concludes that, contrary to considerable anthropological theory, the effect of markets on the quality of life and the rainforest are often unclear or benign. Godoy uses multivariate techniques to examine the changes modernization has had on many indicators of the quality of life and the environment and concludes that the seeds of socioeconomic differentiation may already lie dormant in simple economies. The impact of modernization on lowland Amerindians is a topic of great concern to anthropologists, researchers, and policymakers in developing nations, and this book is a significant contribution to the debate about the likely future of indigenous people.

Regenerative Inventory Systems: Operating Characteristics and Optimization

Product : Regenerative Inventory Systems: Operating Characteristics and Optimization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is a renewal-theoretic analysis of a class of single-item inventory systems; included in a unified exposition are both continuous and periodic review systems. The book starts from the derivation of the time-dependent and stationary distributions of basic stochastic processes related to these systems and concludes with the construction and testing of simple, distribution-free approximations for optimal control policies. Its main focus is on systems with full backlogging of unfilled demand and constant lead times. Extensions to two-shipment order arrivals, ordering delays, and random lead times are also considered. The book is written both for researchers and practitioners. It can also be used as a textbook to support a graduate course in inventory theory. The level is intermediate and the style is informal. Some prior knowledge of probability theory and inventory control is assumed on the part of the reader.

Energy-Transducing Atpases - Structure and Kinetics

Product : Energy-Transducing Atpases - Structure and Kinetics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : First published in 1986, Professor Tonomura's book explains at the molecular level how cells use energy harnessed as adenosine triphosphate to perform the fundamental physiological functions such as muscle contraction and the active transport of cations. In all cases, ATPases enzymes are involved and the detailed reaction mechanisms are carefully described. Young collaborators helped Professor Tonomura to put together the first draft of the book, for he was particularly anxious that the text should be accessible to students who were less familiar with the intricacies of the field than he himself, and should reflect their needs. After his sudden, untimely death, Professor Ebashi and his colleagues at the National Institute of Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, updated and completed the text. The result is a well-written, interesting account of the field and this volume forms a worthy memorial to one of the foremost workers in this area of biochemical research.

Explaining Illness: Research, Theory, and Strategies

Product : Explaining Illness: Research, Theory, and Strategies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Understanding one's health conditions plays a key role in a patient's response to illness, influencing stress levels and the likelihood of following treatment regimens and advice. Thus, the explanation of illness is a critical component of the interactions between health care providers and their patients. Emphasizing these exchanges and their potential for improving health and well being, Bryan B. Whaley has assembled this collection to serve both as a foundation for further research on explaining illness and as a resource for provider-patient interaction. Contributors from the communication and health care disciplines examine the purpose and methods of explaining illness, as well as the role that illness explanations play in framing and reframing meaning and uncertainty regarding one's health welfare. Including theoretical, developmental, and cultural factors, the elegance of this book is the richness in the differences among populations and communication strategies, and the articulation of the intricacies of language, illness, and culture in the explanations. As a resource for scholars and students of communication, medicine, nursing, public health, social work, and related areas, this volume establishes a benchmark from which to examine and evaluate current theory and strategies in explaining illness, and to launch systematic research endeavors. Health practitioners will also find the book invaluable in their exchanges with their patients, as a unique source of information on the factors influencing the explanation of illness.

The Press and the Constitution, 1931-1947

Product : The Press and the Constitution, 1931-1947
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Press and the Constitution, 1931-1947 " was first published in 1948. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Sixteen dramatic years--from the Minnesota gag law case in 1931 to the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947. Sixteen years in which the American system of freedom developed new strength and conferred new benefits on the common man. In "The Press and the Constitution " J. Edward Gerald has told the story of these years as they have influenced the development of freedom of the press. During this turbulent time American newspapers, in spite of their claims to protection under the First and Fourteenth amendments, have found themselves subjected to increasing legal restraints. The guarantee of freedom of the press affects the lives of a wide range of individuals--from publishers to pickets, from Big Business leaders to itinerant evangelists. To show this, Mr. Gerald includes in his discussion the anti-trust laws, newspaper taxes, wage and hour legislation, censorship, picketing, licensing, and the contempt power. The book analyzes a series of cases decided by the United States Supreme Court from 1931 to 1947. Among the more celebrated are the Chicago "Sun"-Chicago "Tribune "antitrust case, the "Esquire "case, in which the powers of the Postmaster General were limited, and the Jehovah's Witnesses cases, in which the line between religion and commerce was defined. The author concludes that American law definitely establishes--and carries out--the concept of the common welfare, even to the point of government intervention to increase freedom of the press for some while restricting it for others.

Product : Message for the Week: Getting Through the First Year of Grieving
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Initially, I wanted to reach out for help for myself when I found myself reaching out to help other people. After my son Christopher's death I faced obstacles and challenges beyond belief. I would think about my son and how he must have felt when he had troubling thoughts on his mind, and couldn't explain what he was going through. On the day that he died I thought to myself, "What didn't I say that could have made a difference?" That was my starting point and I made a promise to myself that I would try to be open and truthful. For almost a year, I would send text messages via my cell phone, once a week to family members and friends with a little something to keep them going and to let them know that life isn't so bad. Ironically as I pursued this mission of helping others through God's word, I felt enormous healing myself. I received a lot of great reviews and compliments in return. But more importantly, reaching out to others in my worst time of trouble helped me to heal and understand that I did not grieve alone.
