The Projection of Arguments: Lexical and Compositional Factors

Product : The Projection of Arguments: Lexical and Compositional Factors
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is becoming increasingly clear that the standard approach to argument linking in terms of 'thematic roles', which are determined by the lexical meaning of verbs, has some serious shortcomings. This volume sets out to explore alternatives to a rigid model of lexical projection. It brings together a set of papers from different backgrounds that converge on the general hypothesis that the many semantic factors which influence the projection of arguments should be attributed to compositional processes rather than to the fixed contents of lexical entries. Proposals for a reassessment of the lexicon-syntax interface are included, as well as topics addressing questions of argument hierarchies and adicity of predicates, and the syntax and semantics of argument alternations in a set of very diverse languages.

Product : Mycotoxins in Plant Disease: Under the Aegis of Cost Action 835 "Agriculturally Important Toxigenic Fungi 1998-2003," Eu
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The accumulation of mycotoxins in plants and plant products is one of the most important consequences of plant diseases, especially those caused by species of Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium. It has been estimated that 25% of world food crops, including many basic food crops, are affected by mycotoxins. The toxins are responsible for various toxicities in animals and humans, including carcinogenic and teratogenic effects, and digestive, blood and nerve disorders. There is thus an urgent need to understand the nature of the toxigenic fungi that are widespread on economically important plant products and the role of these toxic secondary metabolites in the development of disease, i.e. as virulence or pathogenicity factors, in order to minimise the accumulation of these products in a range of food products. This volume has gathered together specialist reports compiled through EU-COST Action 835: Agriculturally Important Toxigenic Fungi. The contents should be of particular value to scientists interested in the occurrence and nature of mycotoxins, their importance in the development of disease and the molecular nature of plant-pathogen interactions. The information will also be invaluable to those responsible for determining the levels of mycotoxins in human and animal food and deciding upon regulatory limitations on the levels of mycotoxins in agricultural products.

Subterranean Cities: The World Beneath Paris and London, 1800-1945

Product : Subterranean Cities: The World Beneath Paris and London, 1800-1945
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The underground has been a dominant image of modern life since the late eighteenth century. A site of crisis, fascination, and hidden truth, the underground is a space at once more immediate and more threatening than the ordinary world above. In Subterranean Cities, David L. Pike explores the representation of underground space in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a period during which technology and heavy industry transformed urban life.The metropolis had long been considered a moral underworld of iniquity and dissolution. As the complex drainage systems, underground railways, utility tunnels, and storage vaults of the modern cityscape superseded the countryside of caverns and mines as the principal location of actual subterranean spaces, ancient and modern converged in a mythic space that was nevertheless rooted in the everyday life of the contemporary city. Writers and artists from Felix Nadar and Charles Baudelaire to Charles Dickens and Alice Meynell, Gustave Dore and Victor Hugo, George Gissing and Emile Zola, and Jules Verne and H. G. Wells integrated images of the urban underworld into their portrayals of the anatomy of modern society. Illustrated with photographs, movie stills, prints, engravings, paintings, cartoons, maps, and drawings of actual and imagined urban spaces, Subterranean Cities documents the emergence of a novel space in the subterranean obsessions and anxieties within nineteenth-century urban culture. Chapters on the subways, sewers, and cemeteries of Paris and London provide a detailed analysis of these competing centers of urban modernity. A concluding chapter considers the enduring influence of these spaces on urban culture at the turn of thetwenty-first century.

Insider's Guide to Library Automation: Essays of Practical Experience

Product : Insider's Guide to Library Automation: Essays of Practical Experience
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Libraries are becoming increasingly automated. Many libraries have already become automated, and librarians have had to confront a new set of problems in their jobs. Many other libraries are not yet automated, but will soon be acquiring new technology and new problems. This book provides detailed techniques for coping with the problems inherent in automation. While other works offer thorough coverage of the library automation process, this volume provides case studies of the personal experiences of librarians who have had to solve problems related to automation. Included are case studies from large academic libraries, special libraries, public libraries, and smaller libraries. The first section of the book includes chapters on locally developed library automation systems and how those systems have adapted to change. The second section contains chapters on selecting, buying, and installing automation systems. The third section includes chapters on the sharing of automated systems by different libraries. The fourth section, on database maintenance and conversion, contains chapters important to all librarians. The fifth section discusses the management of automated systems. The book concludes with a bibliographic essay that overviews developments in library automation technology and lists sources for further information.

Foreign Teachers in China: Old Problems for a New Generation, 1979-1989

Product : Foreign Teachers in China: Old Problems for a New Generation, 1979-1989
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since 1979, thousands of Westerners have been entering China. These include numbers of foreign teachers who have been invited by the Chinese to observe and participate in the educational system. Why were they invited? And just what did the foreign teachers expect to contribute? In Foreign Teachers in China, Edgar A. Porter addresses and explores these and other questions. Although the events surrounding June 4, 1989 have brought many more issues and realities to light, the book seeks to present the ten-year period of East-West relationships, beginning in 1979, and tests Jonathan Spence's argument in his book To Change China that Chinese invite foreigners only for their technical expertise and that foreigners enter China primarily to change it in their own image. Porter sums up both Chinese and foreign perceptions regarding the role of foreign teachers in China's colleges and universities during 1979 (post-Mao years) and up until the events in Beijing in June of 1989. Divided into three sections, the first presents the history of the role of foreigners in China's institutions of higher learning. The second section is drawn from interviews conducted during 1987-1989. It is here that the role, the motivation, and the future of the modern involvement between the Chinese and foreign teachers is placed in the context of Chinese history. The third section presents supporting documents, agreements between various U.S. and Chinese programs, and an internal document from China describing how Chinese should relate to foreign teachers and other experts. Students of Chinese culture and society--from history to foreign policy to Chinese modernization--will find this book helpful and fascinating. Thebook is also highly appropriate for colleges and universities offering courses in International Education, American Studies, and Asian Studies.

Description : Thereas a shortage of seniors these days. First there was the fiasco with AR-1 until it became illegal to possess. The promise to reverse aging was too wonderful to wait for more studies. A painful death made the drug illegal. Next came The Treatment for those in their prime, to slow aging. The price it extracted was the inability to reproduce. A fertilized egg was frozen first, hoping for a change. Robert Thursby, the money-hungry, upscale nursing home director, and an electromagnetic storm change the lives of all the seniors, especially Peg Waltz, a 106-year-old surrogate mother. Was she killed during the storm and then Dark Sided? She certainly has changed. Only the Brain Trust can help find the answers.

Summer Gone

Product : Summer Gone
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The admired, bestselling author of The Danger Tree joins Knopf Canada with his masterful first work of fiction: a haunting novel about love experienced and love remembered that is also an unforgettable celebration and evocation of the brief beauty of a northern summer. Summer Gone is about that moment when everything stops. Like skilled canoeists, we briefly hold a perfect balance - poised between innocence and experience, life and death, discovery and loss, the promise of spring and the sadness of autumn - and we believe, foolishly, that those perfect days will last forever. Set among the islands and lakes of "cottage country," this major first novel from one of Canada's premier writers explores the stories of three generations of lost summers. But Summer Gone is primarily the story of a divorced father and a young son separated by the silence of estrangement, and how during one extraordinary night on an ill-fated canoe trip the silence is broken. Yet, as the novel unfolds, tragedy looms over father and son in ways they could never have imagined, and leads to the book's gripping and startling conclusion. Summer Gone is an exquisite novel, beautifully written and powerfully told.

Description : In contemporary health care ethics, respect for patient autonomy is often considered the primary ethical principle, trumping all others. Many health care ethicists and clinicians alike presume that it is impossible to make judgement about patients' best interests. Patients and their health care providers meet as moral strangers. Hence, the conventional wisdom is that clinical interactions should be based on a contractual relationship between two respectful but estranged people.

As a junk bond salesman with the investment bank Whorman Skeller & Co., he has a chance to prove his worth when the firm plans to launch a major high yield bond deal for a satellite communications company called Lodestar. Because Lodestar has important connections to the US Department of Defense, Martin and the other junk bond salespersons know their jobs are on the line if they don't sell the deal. Their desperation to do so leads to an act of espionage and murder. Martin somehow finds himself as the accused perpetrator of both. Both the cops and a gang of Chinese thugs under the command of a rogue hedge fund trader are hot on his trail. "Junk" combines a satirical send-up of a typical investment bank with elements of a fast-paced thriller.

Community Involvement in Health Development

Product : Community Involvement in Health Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A wide-ranging analysis of community involvement in health development (CIH) as a concept, a strategy, and an ongoing experiment in the search for ways to improve health care for the majority of the world's population. Noting that discussions of health-sector reform have given CIH greater prominence, the book aims to provide a resource of ideas and practical methods for all health professionals interested in applying a participatory approach to development work. The book has seven chapters. The first traces the historical evolution of the concept of CIH and discusses its place within the broader areas of development theory and practice. The next three chapters provide detailed case studies of recent experiences with CIH in Bolivia, Nepal, and Senegal. Chapter five, on health development structures, draws on data from nine countries included in a study, which explored the potential of civil society organizations to promote and facilitate CIH. Results of the study confirm the considerable potential of health development structures to bring together both different sectors and different levels of government. Chapter six discusses the need to develop an appropriate methodology of participatory development. Lessons from the case studies are used to identify a set of operational principles for community action for health. The final chapter draws a number of important conclusions concerning ways in which the concept of CIH can move closer to practical reality. Many past failures are attributed to the unrealistic expectation that participatory efforts would make it possible to achieve more with less money.

The Paramaters of Postmodernism

Product : The Paramaters of Postmodernism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "The Parameters of Postmodernism, "Nicholas Zurbrugg demonstrates how contemporary artistic creativity discredits popular apocalyptic theories. "The Parameters of Postmo""dernism "offers a highly polemical discussion of the conflict between what Zurbrugg presents as the misleading assumptions of many of the more negative theoretical accounts of postmodern culture and the positive creativity of most leading postmodern artists, writers, and performers. Zurbrugg challenges what he considers the fictions of popular crisis theories by demonstrating that the so-called crises are only theoretical constructs at odds with current artistic practice. Based on Zurbrugg's extensive interviews with a number of the leading postmodern artists, writers, and performers (Anderson, Baudrillard, Beckett, Cage, Glass, Rainer, and Wilson, among them), this book presents a challenging, positive view of postmodern culture. Zurbrugg names the condition caused by the prevailing negative theories about postmodern culture the "B-effect, "a term derived from the work of a number of influential European writers and theorists (Brecht, Beckett, Barthes, Baudrillard, Bourdieu, and others) who have insisted on the lack of valid avant-garde innovation, the "death" of artistic creativity, and the lack of a permanent reality. In the first section of "The Parameters of Postmodernism, "Zurbrugg considers the contradictions in the arguments of the B-effect writers and points to later writings in which they qualify their earlier, most infamous assertions. In the second section of the book, Zurbrugg introduces the offsetting "C-effect" of postmodern culture, an effect based on those more positive creative practices and theories best exemplified, he feels, by the work of the late American composer John Cage. Zurbrugg identifies additional aspects of the C-effect in the multimedia experiments of other Americans, such as Anderson, Ashley, Glass, Monk, Rainer, and Wilson, who interweave various postmodern media with confidence and invention and those European artists and writers like Beuys, Carrington, Eco, Grass, Muller, and Wolf who revive, modify, and reanimate mythological, medieval, neoclassical, and folk traditions. Zurbrugg argues that in each case--high-tech or revivalist--postmodern creativity culminates in highly positive syntheses of past, present, and futuristic materials." The Parameters of Postmodernism "will interest scholars and students of postmodern culture, especially those working in English, comparative literature, French, performance studies, art history, and interdisciplinary humanities.

Description : This book surveys US achievements and failures in the world across the 20th century. The analysis builds upon surveys of experts at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and several universities conducted over the last 25 years. The reasons for success and failure are subject to hot dispute. Walter Clemens argues that the individual traits of US leaders account for far more variation in outcomes than the domestic or international contexts. He concludes that the policy outcomes of the past century confirm the assumptions of mutual gain theory, complexity theory, and liberal peace theory. Clemens then uses his analysis to sketch alternative futures that could face planners in the early 21st century.

Description : The global movement toward democracy, spurred in part by the ending of the cold war, has created opportunities for democratization not only in Europe and the former Soviet Union, but also in Africa. This book is based on workshops held in Benin, Ethiopia, and Namibia to better understand the dynamics of contemporary democratic movements in Africa. Key issues in the democratization process range from its institutional and political requirements to specific problems such as ethnic conflict, corruption, and role of donors in promoting democracy. By focusing on the opinion and views of African intellectuals, academics, writers, and political activists and observers, the book provides a unique perspective regarding the dynamics and problems of democratization in Africa.

Sophisticated in its analysis of the underlying processes leading to this development, the book provides detailed case studies of the evolution and powers of the meso level in different European countries, and of the political, social and econ

Multiple Risk Factors in Cardiovascular Disease: Strategies of Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease, Cardiac Failure, and Stroke

Product : Multiple Risk Factors in Cardiovascular Disease: Strategies of Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease, Cardiac Failure, and Stroke
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The issue of interaction of risk factors in cardiovascular disease is timely and of clinical relevance. This book is a collection of the scientific contributions to the 4th International Symposium on Multiple Risk Factors and Cardiovascular Disease: Strategies of Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease, Cardiac Failure, and Stroke, and addresses the role of simultaneous risk factors in patients. Because patients with two or more risk factors are at very high risk for developing cardiovascular diseases, special care should be taken in the choice of appropriate therapeutic intervention. Risk factors are also discussed from the point of view of the biochemist and the pharmacologist by addressing the mechanisms underlying the onset of hypertension, hyperlipoproteinemia, hypercoagulability, and the possibility of therapeutic intervention. This book will therefore be of value to the biochemist, pharmacologist, and clinical pharmacologist, as well as to specialists in the field of cardiovascular medicine in order to keep up-to-date with current knowledge in this fast moving field of research.

Sexual Interactions and HIV Risk: New Conceptual Perspectives in European Research

Product : Sexual Interactions and HIV Risk: New Conceptual Perspectives in European Research
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How sexual risk is negotiated betwen partners is an area of considerable theoretical interest, with the dominant models of analysis focusing on individual decisions to engage in sexual behaviour and relying on rational decision-making. This work, based on the findings from work coordinated by the Centre d'Etudes Sociologiques in Brussels, offers a social critique of the theories and perspectives which have currently been brought to bear in the study of sexual risk behaviour and HIV. Leading European researchers offer a conceptual framework for analysis based on sexual interactions and their social context. The practical relevance of new perspectives on sexual behaviour in the context of HIV/AIDS prevention is also discussed.

The Adelphi Players: The Theatre of Persons

Product : The Adelphi Players: The Theatre of Persons
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cecil Davies' The Adelphi Players: The Theatre of Persons represents a uniquely interesting contribution to our understanding of touring British theatre in the mid-twentieth-century, post-war period. This book will interest everyone - whether student, academic or general reader - who wants to know more about issues concerning the recent history of British theatre. In their values and aims, the Adelphi Players pre-empted many of the post-war developments that we associate with the non-commercial, fringe and community theatre movement. In Richard Heron Ward founder of the Adelphi-Players, we encounter a dramatist, novelist, essayist and poet who has been unusually neglected in terms of our appreciation of the English literature of the broad left in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The Adelphi Players has been edited by Peter Billingham, who has also provided an introduction placing Ward and the Adelphi players in the wider social, cultural and ideological context.

The Policy Partnership: Presidential Elections and American Democracy

Product : The Policy Partnership: Presidential Elections and American Democracy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The presidency was neither designed nor expected to act in concert with the American people; the Framers intended Congress to represent the popular will. Thanks in part to public outrage at Congressional abuses of power, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson led mass movements that forced major changes in the presidency, electoral politics, and national policy. Contemporary presidents are elected on the promise of being the direct representative of the people. There is an implicit deal between the president and voters: election to office in return for responsiveness to voter concerns. As "The Policy Partnership" shows, this relationship has been crumbling for some time. Presidents frequently break campaign promises and make unpopular decisions, while the public rarely bands together to demand attention to policy concerns. Many people simply do not vote; political elites take advantage of this indifference to advance their own agendas. Bruce Buchanan explores the presidential elections of the last half-century to answer pressing questions created by this situation: What has become of the policy relationship potential created by presidential elections? To what degree do candidates and presidents take voter policy concerns into account before and after elections? How much influence do voters really have on presidential policy? What can be done to increase voter participation and presidential responsiveness? The central question of democratic politics comes down to the relationship between popular electoral choices and public policy: if voters can't influence what government does, then what is the point of democracy?

Crucibles of Crisis: Performing Social Change

Product : Crucibles of Crisis: Performing Social Change
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Crucibles of Crisis" gathers together critical essays that consider the potential of theater and dance to encourage and participate in social and political change. The authors address a variety of questions about the relationship between politics and culture, and examine the impact of the performing arts, as both catalyst and respondent, on twentieth-century society. International in scope, yet at the same time sensitively grounded in the specific histories and geographies of their subjects, the collection discusses theater and performance in Northern Ireland, Mexico, East Germany, South Africa, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and the United States during the periods of the Harlem Renaissance and the 1960s. The book confronts fundamental questions about the relevance of the performing arts to issues of gender, race, and colonialism by examining specific examples from 1930s New York to the 1960s South, from Berlin to Johannesburg to Buenos Aires. "Crucibles of Crisis" documents a wide variety of instances when the performing arts participated vigorously in social struggle, contributing to new social formations and leaving rich legacies for future artists and scholars. It argues for the renewed viability and vitality of performance as a tool for social transformation. At the same time, it reveals the limits on the claim of the performing arts to any privileged role in the production of culture--the boundaries of their potential to effect meaningful change. "Crucibles of Crisis" should interest not only performance specialists but also historians, social theorists, and those engaged in seeking patterns of meaning in the production of culture. The contributors are Lynne Conner, GreggDion, Harry Elam Jr., Loren Kruger, Anthony O'Brien, Patricia R. Schroeder, Katrin Sieg, Diana Taylor, Mary Trotter, Adam Versenyi, and W. B. Worthen. Janelle Reinelt is Chair of the Department of Dramatic Art and Dance, University of California-Davis, and has been coeditor of "Theatre Journal." She is the author of After Brecht and coeditor of "Critical Theory and Performance" (with Joseph Roach) and "The Performance of Power "(with Sue-Ellen Case).

The Provenance of Murder

Product : The Provenance of Murder
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Murder in the small town of Mud Creek, Ohio, turns out to be a blessing for the retail antique business. The owners of the Tulley Antiques and Collectibles Shoppe might abide the apparently coincidental uptick if not for the tourists whose morbid curiosity about the murder weapons-antiques-didn't keep reminding them that they're profiting in blood antiques. The crimes are all too strange, and complicated, for Sheriff Joe Donovan, a man perfectly adequate at his job when it comes to patrolling the grounds at tractor shows. The well-intentioned Sheriff has several suspects, among them Tap Tippler, a Gulf War veteran who's in love with a Buddhist belly dancer known for her shaky reputation. The Sheriff can't bring himself to impose on such a beautiful romance. For the local war hero, commerce with belly dancer Kylie quickly turns to love and a need to rescue her from her questionable, yet independent, life of indulgence. If only he could reconcile his moral ambivalence about loving a.professional. As if building trust weren't hard enough, Tap faces other obstacles. Like convincing Sheriff Donovan that he's not a murderer. Or sending a message to a certain criminal who wants a piece of Kylie's earnings. Or fighting the Mayor in a land grab through eminent domain. Or, most difficult, defending himself against sexual misconduct accusations by Toni Yates, a promiscuous-and treacherously vengeful-teenage girl who's developed a crush on him. Any, or a combination, of these problems would crush a lesser man.

Jericho

Product : Jericho
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Vividly conjured out of the hustle and crime of Canada's poorest neighbourhood, this poetic and picaresque novel stakes a new claim on the fictional territory of Don DeLillo and Chuck Palahniuk. Bishop isn't a man most women would find attractive: a middle-aged marijuana dealer who owes his ponytail to hair transplants, and his twisted knowledge of books to the reading he's done in rehab. But for one brief moment he catches the eye of Beth, an innocent from rural Alberta -- who, at that same instant, excites the self-destructive lust of Theresa, a social worker and therapist wannabe. These strange comings-together in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside propel the three characters on a wild race through British Columbia's mountainous interior, headed toward Bishop's self-invented city on a hill. It turns out they are also on a journey through concepts of family, urban dislocation, gender identity and the disconnections of language itself. "From the Hardcover edition."

Smugglers' Nest

Product : Smugglers' Nest
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Javier and Lucas, best friends, live in a little village in the mountains of Mexico. Javier learned to capture and tame birds from his father, now deceased. Javier is "the man of the house" and helps his mother and little brothers by selling birds at the market. This leads to his unwitting involvement with a ring of bird smugglers. Diego Vargas, the ring leader, is also exploiting the townspeople of Santa Elena over their water rights. Javier refuses to listen to warnings about Diego, wanting to believe him a bird fancier and friend. But, when Javier's own beloved parrot, Clown, is taken by the smugglers and almost lost forever, Javier sees clearly his mistake and what he must do to rectify it. Events lead Javier and Lucas to a wild ride in a pickup truck and assisting the police in a raid at the smuggler's nest. The boys play a major role in smashing the smuggling ring. With Diego's imprisonment, the town gets back its rights to the water source that Diego has controlled. Thousands of exotic birds like macaws and parrots are brought into the United States yearly and fetch large sums at specialty pet stores. Many of these birds are brought across the border illegally. Who catches the birds? How are they smuggled? This story is based on some of the answers the author discovered in her research.

Blonds on Bikes

Product : Blonds on Bikes
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Blonds on Bikes is George Bowering's first book of poetry since Urban Snow was published by Talonbooks in 1992. Like that one and others, it is largely made up of sequences. The longest one, the title poem, is a composition of daily riffs during an autumn in Denmark and Italy. "Pictures" is an album of verbal portraits by a husband and wife who see differently. There is a series of tributes to other writers on special occasions. Sometimes a short lyric sticks its head up. Whatever the form, Bowering is more interested in sound than he is in ground, more interested in wit than he is in shovels. If you read carefully, you might get a little scared. If you want "one of the last great masters who can use language to impose an individual yet universal order on the perceived world",

Out of the Blue Writers Unite

Product : Out of the Blue Writers Unite
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This anthology "Out of the Blue Writers Unite" was conceived based on our hope to directly introduce to you some of the well received written works that we have heard in the literary venue of The Out of the Blue Art Gallery, be it poetry or prose. Along with being entertaining, we hope that this selection demonstrates the number of ways in which human beings bond, struggle and prevail in life. The voice of each writer is unique because each reflects a wide range of emotions and beliefs. The writers come from a hodge-podge of backgrounds, reflecting different social, educational, and geographical influences. Challenging topics were ventured into due to diversity in age, gender, sexuality, and mental or physical capacities. Some writers chose very brave subjects to write about such as surviving traumas like homelessness, incest, and living with physical challenges such as being blind or wheel chair dependent. Many of the pieces were selected because of their style of presentation as well as the enthusiasm in which they were received in readings or from the various publications in which they were previously published. Other writers chose selections of a lighter nature for consideration. Please enjoy the amalgamation of creative voices presented here. It's with our sincere gratitude to the Cambridge Arts Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, that the Out of the Blue Art Gallery is able to present the "Out of the Blue Writers Unite." Many of the authors are Cambridge residents, some well known, others new. So it is our hope that you will indulge in these selections and that they might inspire you to write and to share your work with us at our Gallery.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There are now two superpowers in the world: the United States of America and public opinion. While the Americans may dominate the world economy, they do not dominate global public opinion. To succeed today, world leaders must routinely take public opinion into account and deal with the fact that the public trusts them less and less. Every day, on every continent, citizens are expressing their choices and preferences, thus directly or indirectly influencing the future of our planet. This book presents the results of the largest worldwide survey ever conducted. It includes the opinions of 53,749 citizens from 68 countries and five continents, who were polled by members of the Gallup International Association. Using photos, tables, graphs and maps, the authors have endeavoured to convey these people's opinions and feelings about the most significant issues in the world today. Voice of the People" "provides answers to questions of genuine importance: Do we have our priorities straight? Do we pray on an empty stomach? Do we live in a democratic society? Ecology or economy? The Gallup International Association, the most prestigious association of polling firms in the world, introduces the world's first book on global public opinion. Voice of the People" "will correlate the perceptions, attitudes and behaviours of citizens from all over the globe with several key factors that influence their lives -- such as religion, the environment, terrorism, AIDS, immigration, human rights, world hunger, democracy and social solidarity. Based on the renowned worldwide survey " Voice of the People" -- conducted for more than 20 years in 75 countries -- thisnew annual reference, researched and written by top fact-finders from across the globe, will analyze major public opinion trends on global issues by region and by country. The book will be divided into chapters by theme, and will include easy-to-understand analyses of major trends and characteristics by country, region, religion, gender and age. This fascinating and accessible book for the general public will quickly become an indispensable annual reference.The data for the book are derived from a scientific survey conducted during the months of June, July and August 2005 among a representative sample of at least 500 respondents by country (i.e., more than 50,000 respondents worldwide) according to the GIA's rigorous professional standards.

A Heart Divided

Product : A Heart Divided
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Set in 1891, A Heart Divided is based on 47 original letters written by a beautiful young woman while traveling on a three month excursion. This woman, my great-grandmother Mary, boarded a train in Washington, DC, enroute to California with her Aunt Emily, leaving behind her husband and young daughter. In Hays, Kansas, the two women are joined by Maryas beloved cousin Fred who will travel with them for the next ten weeks. A Heart Divided reveals one womanas sense of adventure, deeply entangled emotions, and her struggle to make the right choices. It is a story of American history, of spiritual battles as old as the Garden of Eden, and a reflection of a very different time in the traditional roles of women. Mary challenged those traditions, followed the lure of travel, and pushed the limits until she was able to reconcile all the pieces of a heart divided.

Many Pathways to Literacy: Young Children Learning with Siblings, Grandparents, Peers, and Communities

Product : Many Pathways to Literacy: Young Children Learning with Siblings, Grandparents, Peers, and Communities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This unique and visionary text is a compilation of fascinating studies conducted in a variety of cross-cultural settings where children learn language and literacy with siblings, grandparents, peers and community members. Focusing on the knowledge and skills of children often invisible to educators, these illuminating studies highlight how children skilfully draw from their varied cultural and linguistic worlds to make sense of new experiences. The vastly experienced team of contributors provide powerful demonstrations of the generative activity of young children and their mediating partners - family members, peers, and community members - as they syncretise languages, literacies and cultural practices from varied contexts. Through studies grounded in home, school, community school, nursery and church settings, we see how children create for themselves radical forms of teaching and learning in ways that are not typically recognised, understood or valued in schools. This book will be invaluable reading for teachers, teacher educators, researchers and policy-makers who seek to understand the many pathways to literacy and use that knowledge to affect real change in schools.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is clear that our society must become a more sustainable one. To that end, we must change both our production and our consumption patterns. Some argue that this implies the abolition of democratic processes, and thus of citizens' participation in environmental policy. Others argue the opposite: the only way to avoid impending environmental disaster is by engaging in common deliberation and contemplation. Is participation, then, a negative force or not? This volume is one of the first coordinated attempts to study the relationship between democratic, participatory forms of decision making and the quality of environmental decisions. The central question is how can the normatively desirable practice of participatory decision making be combined with an effective approach to environmental issues?Guided by a theoretical introduction by the editors, the 15 chapters deal with topics ranging from the scale of environmental problems, local agenda 21, infrastructural decisions, strategic planning, to environmental policy in developing countries. Three chapters are devoted to each of these broad themes. Each presents either a theoretical or an empirical argument about the central research question, shedding light on such issues as the measurement of decision quality, participation techniques, and the link between participation and decision quality, drawing on experience gained in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Africa. The introductions to the individual parts of the book have been collectively written by the contributors, who represent a range of professional disciplines, including political science, public policy and planning.

Nebraska Symposium on Motivation, 1985, Volume 33: The Law as a Behavioral Instrument

Product : Nebraska Symposium on Motivation, 1985, Volume 33: The Law as a Behavioral Instrument
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The effect of the law on human behavior is contemporary society--nothing less is the concern of this important book. It is curious that scholars in psychology and law have largely neglected this topic because studies of the effects of law on behavior may have much to teach about the role of social regulation in human motivation more generally. Similarly, such studies may offer jurisprudential scholars new ways of thinking about the role of law in human experience. Here seven leading experts on law and the social sciences discuss the contributions their research c an make to the legal system. Concerned with the relationship between the law and both individual and group behavior, they examine the law as an instrument of social stasis and social change and as an element of personal motivation. The result is a major step toward the development of a psychology of jurisprudence. The scope of this book is in the best tradition of the Nebraska Symposium on Motivation and a fitting celebration of the tenth anniversary of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Law/Psychology Program, the first integrated graduate training program in psycho-legal studies. Drawing from law, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and philosophy, the contributors take a truly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the instrumentality of law.

Eleazar, Exodus to the West

Product : Eleazar, Exodus to the West
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Michel Tournier's "Eleazar, Exodus to the West" is a modern successor to two seemingly disparate myths-the biblical adventure of the Exodus and the nineteenth-century myth of the American frontier. The setting is 1845. Eleazar, a Protestant minister, leaves his native Ireland with his wife and two children to emigrate to America. Like the Old Testament Moses, with whom Eleazar comes to identify through the course of the novel, Eleazar has committed a justifiable murder and is forced to leave his home. After landing in Virginia, the family travels west toward what Eleazar believes is the Promised Land of California. While in the Colorado desert, however, he experiences a profound epiphany. He understands for the first time how the prophet Moses was tragically torn between fire and water: between the burning bush, with its power to bring him into contact with the voice of Yahweh, and the banal demands of the Hebrew people in exile, who depended on him to touch his stick to the rock and bring forth water. "Eleazar, Exodus to the West" parallels the lives of the two misfits-the Irish minister in the American West and the Hebrew Moses in exile in the desert after leaving Egypt. Tournier sets before us timeless issues and tantalizing questions from our mythological past: Moses' personality and peculiar relationship with God, fundamental contradictions between the Old and the New Testaments, and our own intimate bond with the eternal symbols of fire and water.

Christianity's Degrees of Insanity

Product : Christianity's Degrees of Insanity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The seeds of Lynn E. Rhoderick's religious insanity were sown in childhood, when he became aware of a conflict between his mother's biblical theology and his father's "cowboy religion." In 1953, Rhoderick began a religious quest to determine the direction of his life. He was torn between becoming a Baptist minister to please his mother and his father's desire for him to remain on the farm. The author's quest led him to a tour of military duty in Korea before pursuing a college degree. However, Rhoderick's military and college experiences caused him to question traditional Christian beliefs and the virtues of capitalism. In 1963, he converted to Mormonism, hoping he had found answers to his unresolved theological conflicts. His intense study of Mormon history and theology, however, convinced him otherwise. In 1977, Rhoderick was introduced to a mysterious book claiming to be "the most recent presentation of truth" to Earth. His attempt to interest others in the book set his feet upon the "sure pathway to trouble." The author's story about his degree of religious insanity provides an interesting psychological case study.
