Lincolnology: The Real Abraham Lincoln Revealed in His Own Words

Product : Lincolnology: The Real Abraham Lincoln Revealed in His Own Words
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There are two Abraham Lincolns: Lincoln the political celebrity, whose image has been carefully crafted by Lincoln scholars, biographers, and mythographers, and the true Lincoln, whose actual words are almost completely unknown to the general public. Why are they not known? Because they have been concealed, ignored, or misconstrued by Lincoln apologists. In some cases they have even been destroyed. Lincoln's business associates, family members, and personal friends, for example, intentionally burned many of his writings.What is it that Lincoln devotees are so afraid of, and why have they been so careful to bury all traces of the real man? The reason is simple. Exposing the hidden but authentic Lincoln would uncover both his felonious behavior and the illegalities of his war on the South in 1861. In his stunning 1,050-page work, "Lincolnology" - the only study ever undertaken on the president's suppressed, misinterpreted, and forgotten writings and speeches - Southern historian Lochlainn Seabrook seeks to replace these pages so nefariously torn from our American history books.With nearly 2,000 footnotes and a 1,000-book bibliography, this well documented 400,000-word volume will forever alter the way America views its sixteenth chief executive. This special Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition includes an exhaustive index and provocative in-depth chapters on everything you need to know about so-called "Honest Abe," from his war crimes, political outrages, anti-South Reconstruction plans, black colonization efforts, and atheism, to his real views on race, secession, the Constitution, and abolition. Also included are photographs of Lincoln, his cabinet, and his military chiefs.Introduction by Dr. J. Michael Hill, President of the League of the South, former Professor at Stillman College, former Professor of British History, University of Alabama, and author of Celtic Warfare. Foreword by Robert Lovell, M.A., five-term mayor of Leesburg, Florida, ten-year Republican State Committee Representative, Lieutenant Colonel in Hardee's Corps, and author of Cracker Outlaw.Lochlainn Seabrook, the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford and a cousin of Robert E. Lee, is a Southern historian and the author of over thirty books, including the popular "Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner ," "A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest," and "Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories." His first work on Lincoln, "Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View," is a companion book to "Lincolnology." Known as the "American Robert Graves" after the celebrated English writer and poet, Seabrook is a seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage with a twenty-five year background in the American Civil War, pro-South studies, anthropology, etymology, comparative religion and mythology, the paranormal, and thealogy (female-based religion).

Cross-Cultural Research Methods in Psychology

Product : Cross-Cultural Research Methods in Psychology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Cross-cultural research is now an undeniable part of mainstream psychology and has had a major impact on conceptual models of human behavior. Although it is true that the basic principles of social psychological methodology and data analysis are applicable to cross-cultural research, there are a number of issues that are distinct to it, including managing incongruities of language and quantifying cultural response sets in the use of scales. Cross-Cultural Research Methods in Psychology provides state-of-the-art knowledge about the methodological problems that need to be addressed if a researcher is to conduct valid and reliable cross-cultural research. It also offers practical advice and examples of solutions to those problems and is a must-read for any student of culture.

Constitutional Democracy: Creating and Maintaining a Just Political Order

Product : Constitutional Democracy: Creating and Maintaining a Just Political Order
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Constitutional democracy is a political hybrid, the product of an uneasy union between, on the one hand, the normative theories of constitutionalism and democracy and, on the other, the desire to live under what James Madison called "free government." In this engaging and provocative work, Walter F. Murphy combines a lifetime's study of constitutions and democracy with traditional storytelling to answer fundamental questions about constitutional democracy: How is it created? How is it maintained? How can it be adapted to changing circumstances? Murphy begins with a definitional section on constitutions, constitutional texts, constitutionalism, and democracy. Next, he tells the story of how a democracy is established within the context of a fictional constitutional convention for a fictional country. He follows delegates -- many of whose arguments track those of real-life political, economic, and legal theorists -- as they debate and draft the components of a constitution. Here, the reader comes to understand and appreciate the components of a constitutional text and the contingency and potential of the constitution-making process. Murphy then offers an expository analysis of constitutional maintenance, adaptation, and, essentially, constitutional change.

Food Policy for Developing Countries: The Role of Government in Global, National, and Local Food Systems

Product : Food Policy for Developing Countries: The Role of Government in Global, National, and Local Food Systems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Despite technological advances in agriculture, nearly a billion people around the world still suffer from hunger and poor nutrition while a billion are overweight or obese. This imbalance highlights the need not only to focus on food production but also to implement successful food policies. In this new textbook intended to be used with the three volumes of Case Studies in Food Policy for Developing Countries (also from Cornell), the 2001 World Food Prize laureate Per Pinstrup-Andersen and his colleague Derrill D. Watson II analyze international food policies and discuss how such policies can and must address the many complex challenges that lie ahead in view of continued poverty, globalization, climate change, food price volatility, natural resource degradation, demographic and dietary transitions, and increasing interests in local and organic food production. Food Policy for Developing Countries offers a "social entrepreneurship" approach to food policy analysis. Calling on a wide variety of disciplines including economics, nutrition, sociology, anthropology, environmental science, medicine, and geography, the authors show how all elements in the food system function together.

Mechanism, Experiment, Disease: Marcello Malpighi and Seventeenth-Century Anatomy

Product : Mechanism, Experiment, Disease: Marcello Malpighi and Seventeenth-Century Anatomy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A leading early modern anatomist and physician, Marcello Malpighi often compared himself to that period's other great mind -- Galileo. Domenico Bertoloni Meli here explores Malpighi's work and places it in the context of seventeenth-century intellectual life. Malpighi's interests were wide and varied. As a professor at the University of Bologna, he confirmed William Harvey's theory of the circulation of blood; published groundbreaking studies of human organs; made important discoveries about the anatomy of silkworms; and examined the properties of plants. He sought to apply his findings to medical practice. By analyzing Malpighi's work, the author provides novel perspectives not only on the history of anatomy but also on the histories of science, philosophy, and medicine. Through the lens of Malpighi and his work, Bertoloni Meli investigates a range of important themes, from sense perception to the meaning of Galenism in the seventeenth century. Bertoloni Meli contends that to study science and medicine in the seventeenth century one needs to understand how scholars and ideas crossed disciplinary boundaries. He examines Malpighi's work within this context, describing how anatomical knowledge was achieved and transmitted and how those processes interacted with the experimental and mechanical philosophies, natural history, and medical practice. Malpighi was central in all of these developments, and his work helped redefine the intellectual horizon of the time. Bertoloni Meli's critical study of this key figure and the works of his contemporaries -- including Borelli, Swammerdam, Redi, and Ruysch -- opens a wonderful window onto the scientific and medical worlds of the seventeenth century.

War and Drugs: The Role of Military Conflict in the Development of Substance Abuse

Product : War and Drugs: The Role of Military Conflict in the Development of Substance Abuse
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "War and Drugs" explores the relationship between military incursions and substance use and abuse throughout history. For centuries, drugs have been used to weaken enemies, stimulate troops to fight, and quell post-war trauma. They have also served as a source of funding for clandestine military and paramilitary activity. From the Opium Wars through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, themes of colonialism, capitalism, and anticommunism have constructed the foundation for the current crisis of international drug trafficking and addiction. In addition to offering detailed geopolitical perspectives, this book explores the intergenerational trauma that follows military conflict and the rising tide of substance abuse among veterans, especially from the Vietnam and Iraq-Afghan eras. Addiction specialist Bergen-Cico raises important questions about the past and challenges us to consider new approaches in the future especially to that longest of U.S. wars: the erstwhile War on Drugs.

Going beyond that, however EDNT also serves as a guide to the usage of every New Testament word in its various contexts, and it makes a significant contribution to New Testament exegesis and theology. EDNT's thorough, lengthy discussions of more significant words and its grouping of words related by root and meaning (with alphabetical cross-references) distinguish it from simpler Greek-English lexicons. Advancing the discussion of the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament, EDNT summarizes more recent treatments of numerous questions in New Testament study and takes into consideration newer viewpoints of linguistics.

Operational Naval Logistics

Product : Operational Naval Logistics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Operational Naval Logistics is devoted to the thesis that while we must expect to make new mistakes in the logistics of a future war, we should not repeat the old ones. It is a philosophical approach to the study of logistics as a command responsibility and it is dedicated to the principle that the cost of military operations can be reduced by the avoidance of past mistakes, by the adherence to proven methods and techniques, and by the conscious, unremitting effort on the part of everyone to improve the operating efficiency of our logistic support systems. In peace or war, or in the shadowy vale which lies between the two, the answer to the question of how much logistic support should be provided for an operation must always be "No more than absolutely necessary.""The object of Operational Naval Logistics is to challenge its readers to find better, cheaper, more efficient ways of supporting military operations. If it results in a single worthwhile saving being made, or a single better, more efficient technique being devised, it will have been well worth the effort and expense of its publication."D. B.

Eternal Slum

Product : Eternal Slum
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The problem how, where, and on what terms to house the urban masses in an industrial society remains unresolved to this day. In nineteenth-century Victorian England, over-crowding was the most obvious characteristic of urban housing and, despite constant agitation, it remained widespread and persistent in London and other great cities such as Manchester, Glasgow, and Liverpool well into the twentieth century. The Eternal Slum is the first full-length examination of working-class housing issues in a British town. The city investigated not only provided the context for the development of a national policy but also, in scale and variety of response, stood in the vanguard of housing reform. The failure of traditional methods of social amelioration in mid-century, the mounting storm of public protest, the efforts of individual philanthropists, and then the gradual formulation and application of new remedies, constituted a major theme: the need for municipal enterprise and state intervention. Meanwhile, the concept of overcrowding, never precisely defined in law but based on middle-class notions of decency and privacy, slowly gave way to the positive idea of adequate living space, with comfort, as much as health or morals, the criterion. Not just dwellings but people were at issue. There is little evidence in this period of the attitude of the worker himself to his housing. Wohl has extensively researched local archives and, in particular, drawn on the vestry reports which have been relatively neglected. Profusely illustrated with contemporary photographs and drawings, this book is the definitive study of the housing reform movement in Victorian and Edwardian London and suggests what itwas really like to live under such appalling conditions. This important study will be of interest to social historians, British historians, urban planners, and those interested in how social policies developed in previous eras.

When Leadership Goes Wrong Destructive Leadership, Mistakes, and Ethical Failures (PB)

Product : When Leadership Goes Wrong Destructive Leadership, Mistakes, and Ethical Failures (PB)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The leadership landscape has begun to shift. Researchers have started to realize that previous conceptualizations of leadership that focus only on the positive aspects of leadership are too narrow and may represent a romantic notion of leadership. A growing body of inquiry has emerged with a focus on the darker side of leadership. Allowing for the possibility that leaders can also do harm, either intentionally or unintentionally, broadens the scope of leadership studies and serves to increase the practical implications of leadership research. This book brings together contributions by scholars from several different countries addressing topics such as narcissistic and destructive leadership, ethical leadership and leader errors. Endorsement: "Most leadership research has been dominated by a positive, constructive perspective: namely, that leaders are a source of good, and that their efforts, when effective, produce positive outcomes. This book is perhaps the most comprehensive effort to date that challenges this perspective. I cannot think of a topic more deserving of a book, nor of a book better suited to address this vital topic. I recommend it not only to every researcher interested in leadership, but to all those interested "dark side" processes that operate in all organizations." --Timothy A.

Neurofeedback and State Regulation in ADHD: A Therapy Without Medication

Product : Neurofeedback and State Regulation in ADHD: A Therapy Without Medication
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ADHD is the most common behavioral problem in children, and at least half of those diagnosed with this disorder will experience continued difficulties into adulthood. New scientific insights have emerged, especially in the last decade, into state regulation deficits and abnormal electrical brain activity in ADHD. Werner Van den Bergh, M.D. provides an expert analysis of these important developments that reveals novel explanations for the limited self-control and suboptimal adaptation in daily life that typifies ADHD, which family and teachers often perceived as a matter of poor will.Neurofeedback is a psychophysiological treatment that attempts to normalize the deviant brainwave activity and weakened state regulation in ADHD. The author synthesizes this revealing research from diverse scientific disciplines, which until now was lacking. The result provides readers with an insightful understanding of ADHD and neurofeedback along with an in-depth exploration of normal state regulation, self-control, and "free will." This advanced look at ADHD and its treatment through neurofeedback is essential reading for psychologists, neurotherapists, psychiatrists, physicians, neurologists, and anyone interested to learn more about this complex disorder and its treatment.Originally published in Dutch, this newly translated English edition has been revised and updated with the latest research developments.Dr. Van den Bergh is a neurologist and psychiatrist in Leuven, Belgium where he founded "Centrum Vigilant." He has specialized in a clinical-behavioral-neurological approach to the understanding and treatment of ADHD since 1995, and he has published a number of books and articles on the topic. Dr. Van den Bergh teaches QEEG for the Flemish Psychiatric Association in Belgium and is co-founder of the Flemish self support association for adults with ADHD.

English Diplomatic Practice in the Middle Ages

Product : English Diplomatic Practice in the Middle Ages
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is wrong to date the practice of diplo-macy to the Renaissance. Medieval kings relied on a network of diplomats and special envoys to conduct interna-tional relations. War, peace, marriage agreements, ransoms, trade and many other matters all had to be negotiated. To do this a remarkably sophisticated system of diplomacy developed during the mid-dle ages. Pierre Chaplais, the eminent historian of medieval England's relations with its neighbours, describes how diplomacy worked in practice: how ambassadors and other envoys were chosen; how and where they travelled; and how the authenticity of their messages was known in a world before passports and photographs. Safe-conducts, audiences, gifts and meetings between rulers all played their part. English Diplomatic Practice in the Middle Ages is an important and fascinating contribution to the early history of England's role in Europe.

Description : Since the publication of Robert Putnam's" Bowling Alone, " there has been much scholarly literature devoted to the concept of social capital. However, only a small portion of that literature is devoted to its relationship with gender. In Gender and Social Capital, leading scholars-including Pippa Norris, Ron Inglehart, and Theda Skocpol-provide an in-depth analysis of two fundamental and hitherto neglected questions: What can gender tell us about social capital? And what can social capital tell us about women and politics? "Gender and Social" "Capital "is essential reading for anyone interested in the relationship between gender and civic engagement.

Routine Activity and Rational Choice

Product : Routine Activity and Rational Choice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Two new criminological approaches are defined and applied to categories of crime in Routine Activity and Rational Choice, now available in paperback. Routine activity analyzes the criminal event, and avoids motivations and psychology as topics for discussion, whereas rational choice approaches crime as purposive behavior designed to meet the offender's commonplace needs, such as money, status, sex, and excitement. These conceptual models are both employed to analyze such crimes as drunk driving, gun use, kidnapping, and political violence. This volume discusses the relationship of these theories to more traditional approaches to crime studies. The Advances in Criminological Theory series encourages theory construction and validation in the articles and themes selected for publication. It also furthers the free exchange of ideas, propositions, and postulates. Following publication of the first volume, Michael J. Lynch of Florida State University asserted that "Advances in Criminological Theory is to be applauded as an attempt to revive criminological theory by providing an accessible outlet."

Description : As the plump sausages were beginning to brown, there was a knock on the door. Chicago Mob Boss Sam Giancana showed no fear as he turned back the double locks on the heavy steel door of his fortress like home that protected him from the outside world. Sam looked his old friend Johnny Rosselli in the eye and invited him in. The men kissed on the cheek, exchanged pleasantries and shared a laugh. Then "Mooney," as Johnny affectionately called Sam, heard the sausages sizzling in their pan and ran back to the stove to keep them from burning. While he was rolling them over, Johnny quietly crept up behind him and placed the muzzle of a .22 caliber handgun equipped with a silencer at the base of his skull and said "Sam, this is for Marilyn." Sam hesitated a moment as he tended to the sausages. A split second passed. In that moment, an image of Marilyn Monroe, the quintessential Hollywood Goddess, platinum blond bombshell, orphaned child, cheesecake pin up girl, fantasy lover to thousands of men, supposed tragic suicide victim and lover of President John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby, filled Sam's head. Then Johnny pulled the trigger.

Product : Letters from a Life: The Selected Letters of Benjamin Britten, 1913-1976: Volume Five: 1958-1965
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The fifth volume of the annotated selected letters of Benjamin Britten - edited by Philip Reed and Mervyn Cooke - covers the years 1958-65, during which he wrote two major operatic works, A Midsummer Night's Dream and the ground-breaking Curlew River, and his pacifist choral masterpiece, War Requiem. Other significant compositions from the period include the orchestral song-cycle Nocturne, the first of the cello pieces for Rostropovich, and settings of poems by Blake and Pushkin. Correspondents include friends, fellow artists and collaborators such as William Plomer (librettist of Curlew River), Edith Sitwell, E. M. Forster, Christopher Isherwood, Robert Graves, the Earl of Harewood, Yehudi Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovich, Galina Vishnevskaya, Dmitri Shostakovich, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Barbara Hepworth and Duncan Grant, as well as Britten's partner and principal interpreter, Peter Pears. The volume charts the peak of Britten's position as one of the leading figures of the international musical establishment as composer, conductor and pianist, and his continuing involvement with the Aldeburgh Festival and the English Opera Group. The deterioration in Britten's relationship with Boosey & Hawkes, his publishers since the mid-1930s, is closely documented, as is the founding, at the composer's instigation, of the new publishing house of Faber Music in 1964. Central to the period is the composer's warm friendship with musicians from the Soviet Union, and Britten and Pears's visits to Moscow, Leningrad and Armenia are charted in detail.

The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic

Product : The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mathematics and logic have been central topics of concern since the dawn of philosophy. Since logic is the study of correct reasoning, it is a fundamental branch of epistemology and a priority in any philosophical system. Philosophers have focused on mathematics as a case study for general philosophical issues and for its role in overall knowledge- gathering. Today, philosophy of mathematics and logic remain central disciplines in contemporary philosophy, as evidenced by the regular appearance of articles on these topics in the best mainstream philosophical journals; in fact, the last decade has seen an explosion of scholarly work in these areas. This volume covers these disciplines in a comprehensive and accessible manner, giving the reader an overview of the major problems, positions, and battle lines. The 26 contributed chapters are by established experts in the field, and their articles contain both exposition and criticism as well as substantial development of their own positions. The essays, which are substantially self-contained, serve both to introduce the reader to the subject and to engage in it at its frontiers. Certain major positions are represented by two chapters--one supportive and one critical. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Math and Logic is a ground-breaking reference like no other in its field. It is a central resource to those wishing to learn about the philosophy of mathematics and the philosophy of logic, or some aspect thereof, and to those who actively engage in the discipline, from advanced undergraduates to professional philosophers, mathematicians, and historians.

Design, Analysis and Optimization of Supply Chains: A System Dynamics Approach

Product : Design, Analysis and Optimization of Supply Chains: A System Dynamics Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : If you're an executive dealing with extended supply chains, you live with stressand worry. Almost everything made today is manufactured by large networksof companies. Hundreds, if not thousands, of companies provide components, subassemblies, and major assemblies to a final manufacturer or integrator.These large distributed supply chains have created problems and headachesfor many industries.This book can help you prevent lost sales due to inventory shortages, highcosts due to large inventories, work stoppage due to loss of a key supplier, andsupply problems that may be causing a late introduction of a new product.Today's supply chains are not only highly complex in terms of the number ofcompanies involved but also dynamically complex in that their behavior andperformance variations over time range from "hard to comprehend" to baffling.It's no wonder that management is so difficult and challenging. Developing anintuitive grasp of supply chain dynamic behavior is the first step in drivingperformance improvement.In this book, a system dynamics framework for analyzing complex supplychain performance is presented. The feedback nature of supply chains is demonstrated and dynamic simulation models are used to examine the counterintuitive behavior that arises from time delays, lack of information, and incorrect planning assumptions. The benefits of establishing push-pull boundaries in supply chains are shown to provide increased customer service levels with reduced costs. Dynamic supply chain models are used to determine product lifecycle costs and the impacts of improved reliability on lifecycle costs. A basic system dynamics model is used to show that the goal of a "lean and mean" supply chain can be dangerous in periods of economic, political, and climatic volatility, and strategies are developed for improved supply chain management and performance.

The Incarnation of the Word: The Theology of Language of Augustine of Hippo

Product : The Incarnation of the Word: The Theology of Language of Augustine of Hippo
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An exploration of three of Augustine's central texts, the De Trinitate, the De Doctrina Christiana, and the Confessions elucidate the principles of Augustine's theology of language. This is done in a systematic manner, which previous scholarship on Augustine has lacked. Augustine's principles are revealed through a close reading of these three core texts. Beginning with the De Trinitate, the book demonstrates that Augustine's inquiry into the character of the human person is incomplete. For Augustine, there is a void without reference to the category of human speech, the very thing that enables him to communicate his theological inquiry into God and the human person in the De Trinitate. From here, the book examines a central work of Augustine that deals with the significance of divine and human speech, the De Doctrina Christiana. It expounds this text carefully, showing three chief facets of Augustinian thought about divine and human communication: human social relations; human self-interpretation using scripture; and preaching, the public communication of God's word. It accepts the De Doctrina Christiana as laying theoretical foundations for Augustine's understanding of the task of theology and language's meaning and centrality within it. The book then moves to Augustine's Confessions to see the principles of Augustine's theology of language enacted within its first nine books. Augustine's conversion narrative is analysed as a literary demonstration of Augustine's description of human identity before God, showing how speech and human social relations centrally mediate God's relationship to humanity. For Augustine, human identity properly speaking is confessional'. The book returns to the De Trinitate to complete its analysis of that text using the principles of the theology of language uncovered in the De Doctrina Christiana and the Confessions. It shows that the first seven books of that text, and its core structure, move around the principles of the theology of language that the investigation has uncovered. To this extent, theological inquiry for Augustine the human task of looking for God is bound up primarily within the act of human speech and the social relations it helps to compose. The book closes with reflection on the significance of these findings for Augustinian scholarship and theological research more generally.

Product : An Introduction to Optimal Control Problems in Life Sciences and Economics: From Mathematical Models to Numerical Simulation with
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Combining two important and growing areas of applied mathematics-control theory and modeling-this textbook introduces and builds on methods for simulating and tackling problems in a variety of applied sciences. Control theory has moved from primarily being used in engineering to an important theoretical component for optimal strategies in other sciences, such as therapies in medicine or policy in economics. Applied to mathematical models, control theory has the power to change the way we view biological and financial systems, taking us a step closer to solving concrete problems that arise out of these systems. Emphasizing "learning by doing," the authors focus on examples and applications to real-world problems, stressing concepts and minimizing technicalities. An elementary presentation of advanced concepts from the mathematical theory of optimal control is provided, giving readers the tools to solve significant and realistic problems. Proofs are also given whenever they may serve as a guide to the introduction of new concepts. This approach not only fosters an understanding of how control theory can open up modeling in areas such as the life sciences, medicine, and economics, but also guides readers from applications to new, independent research. Key features include: * An introduction to the main tools of MATLAB(R), as well as programs that move from relatively simple ODE applications to more complex PDE models; * Numerous applications to a wide range of subjects, including HIV and insulin treatments, population dynamics, and stock management; * Exploration of cutting-edge topics in later chapters, such as optimal harvesting and optimal control of diffusive models, designed to stimulate further research and theses projects; * Exercises in each chapter, allowing students a chance to work with MATLAB and achieve a better grasp of the applications; * Minimal prerequisites: undergraduate-level calculus; * Appendices with basic concepts and results from functional analysis and ordinary differential equations, including Runge-Kutta methods; * Supplementary MATLAB files are available at the publisher's website: http: //www.birkhauser-science.com/978-0-8176-8097-8/. As a guided tour to methods in optimal control and related computational methods for ODE and PDE models, An Introduction to Optimal Control Problems in Life Sciences and Economics serves as an excellent textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in mathematics, physics, engineering, computer science, biology, biotechnology, and economics. The work is also a useful reference for researchers and practitioners working with optimal control theory in these areas.

The Power of Tests: A Critical Perspective on the Uses of Language Tests

Product : The Power of Tests: A Critical Perspective on the Uses of Language Tests
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Language in Social Life is a major series which highlights the importance of language to an understanding of issues of social and professional concern. It will be of practical relevance to all those wanting to understand how the ways we communicate both influence and are influenced by the structures and forces of contemporary social institutions. In all modern societies individuals are subject to tests, whether to enter educational programs, to pass from one level to the next or to grant certificates to practice. Yet, tests are powerful tools which are often introduced in undemocratic and unethical ways as disciplinary tools for carrying out various policy agendas. Tests can be detrimental to people's lives as they are capable of affecting and defining the knowledge and behaviour of those who are being tested. The Power of Tests applies a critical perspective of language tests by examining their uses and consequences in education and society and by viewing tests not as isolated events but rather as embedded in social, educational and political contexts. The book is divided into four parts: the first part establishes the power of tests through echoing the voices of test takers, describing the features of the power of tests, and the temptations that tests offer to bureaucrats who use them for power and control. The second part reports on studies that provide empirical evidence about intentions and effects of a number of large scale language tests. The third part interprets the results by examining their consequences on education and society, arriving at a model of tests' use. The final section of the book offers strategies for controlling and minimising the misuses of tests byintroducing the notion of Critical Language Testing which calls for the examination of the consequences and misuses of tests, monitoring of power and pointing to their unethical uses. It also provides a comprehensive discussion of the responsibilities of language testers, including a new Code of Ethics, as well as strategies for guarding and protecting the rights of test takers.

Basic Concepts of Aristotelian Philosophy

Product : Basic Concepts of Aristotelian Philosophy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Volume 18 of Martin Heidegger's collected works presents his important 1924 Marburg lectures which anticipate much of the revolutionary thinking that he subsequently articulated in Being and Time. Here are the seeds of the ideas that would become Heidegger's unique phenomenology. Heidegger interprets Aristotle's Rhetoric and looks closely at the Greek notion of pathos. These lectures offer special insight into the development of his concepts of care and concern, being-at-hand, being-in-the-world, and attunement, which were later elaborated in Being and Time. Available in English for the first time, they make a significant contribution to ancient philosophy, Aristotle studies, Continental philosophy, and phenomenology.

Marx's Political Writings Three Volume Set: The Revolutions of 1848, Surveys from Exile, the First International and After

Product : Marx's Political Writings Three Volume Set: The Revolutions of 1848, Surveys from Exile, the First International and After
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Karl Marx was not only the great theorist of capitalism, he was also a superb journalist, politician and historian. In these brand-new editions of Marx's Political Writings we are able to see the depth and range of his mature work from 1848 through to the end of his life, from The Communist Manifesto to The Class Struggles in France and The Critique of the Gotha Programme. Each book has a new introduction from a major contemporary thinker, to shed new light on these vital texts. Volume 1: The Revolutions of 1848: Marx and Engels had sketched out the principles of scientific communism by 1846. Yet it was from his intense involvement in the abortive German Revolution of 1848 that Marx developed a depth of practical understanding he would draw on in Capital and throughout his later career. This volume includes his great call to arms-The Communist Manifesto-but also shows how tactical alliances with the bourgeoisie failed, after which Marx became firmly committed to independent workers' organizations and the ideal of "permanent revolution." The articles offer trenchant analyses of events in France, Poland, Prague, Berlin and Vienna, while speeches set out changing communist tactics. In a new introduction the major socialist feminist writer Sheila Rowbotham examines this period of Marx's life and how it shaped his political perspective. Volume 2: Surveys from Exile: In the 1850s and early 1860s Marx played an active part in politics, and his prolific journalism from London offered a constant commentary on all the main developments of the day. During this time Marx began to interpret the British political scene and express his considered views on Germany, Poland and Russia, the Crimean War and American Civil War, imperialism in India and China, and a host of other key issues. The Class Struggles in France develops the theories outlined in The Communist Manifesto into a rich and revealing analysis of contemporary events, while The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte contains equally stimulating reflections on Napoleon III's coup d'etat of 1851. In a new introduction activist and writer Tariq Ali examines the texts that have become essential works in Marx's canon. Volume 3: The First International and After: The crucial texts of Marx's later years-notably The Civil War in France and Critique of the Gotha Programme-count among his most important work. These articles include a searching analysis of the tragic but inspiring failure of the Paris Commune, as well as essays on German unification, the Irish question, the Polish national movement and the possibility of revolution in Russia. The founding documents of the First international and polemical pieces attacking the disciples of Proudhon and Bakunin and the advocates of reformism, by contrast, reveal a tactical mastery that has influenced revolutionary movements ever since. In a new introduction the renowned Marxist David Harvey sheds light on the evolution of Marx's notions of democracy and

Glass Structures: Design and Construction of Self-Supporting Skins

Product : Glass Structures: Design and Construction of Self-Supporting Skins
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Flat glass opens up more possibilities for the planner than virtually any other material. Because of the technological complexity of using it, however, no specific structural forms have been developed for glass supporting frameworks as they have been for wood, concrete, and steel. This book is thus the first to present a coherent guide to the planning and design of glass supporting frameworks. The focus is on the pressure-resistant, flat supporting element as a basic building block for broad supporting structures. The spatial and constructive forms of multifunctional, self-supporting glass envelopes are vividly illustrated and systematically explained. The constructions presented exhibit new aesthetic qualities, based not on the dictum of "dematerializationa but on the poetry of gleaming and transparent planes. They ring in a new chapter in the history of glass architecture.

Each of the twelve individual books--Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi--begins with its own narrative introduction that identifies the prophet and provides details concerning the historical setting and literary characteristics. In this manner each book is clearly distinguished from the others within the overall framework of the Twelve.

Appalachian Dulcimer Traditions

Product : Appalachian Dulcimer Traditions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Appalachian dulcimer is one of America's major contributions to world music and folk art. Homemade and handmade, played by people with no formal knowledge of music, this beautiful instrument entered the post-World-War-II Folk Revival with virtually no written record. Appalachian Dulcimer Traditions tells the fascinating story of the effort to recover the instrument's lost history through fieldwork in the Southern mountains, finding of old instruments, and listening to the tales of old folks.After reviewing the instrument's distinctive musical features, Ralph Lee Smith presents the dulcimer's story chronologically, tracing its roots in a Renaissance German instrument, the scheitholt; describing the early history of the scheitholt and the dulcimer in America; and outlining the development of distinctive dulcimer styles in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Kentucky. The story continues into the 20th Century, through the final group of tradition-based Appalachian makers whose work flowed into the national scene of the Folk Revival.This fully revised edition provides expanded information about the history of the scheitholt and the dulcimer before the Civil War and discusses traditions and types that are still being discovered and documented. Smith also adds his personal adventures in searching for the dulcimer's history. A new final chapter describes types and styles that do not fit conveniently into the mainstream development of the instrument. The book concludes with several appendixes, including measurements of representative dulcimers and listings of dulcimer recordings in the Archive of Folk Culture of the Library of Congress.

Cognitive Therapy for Personality Disorders: A Guide for Clinicians

Product : Cognitive Therapy for Personality Disorders: A Guide for Clinicians
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is increasingly recognized that a significant number of individuals with personality disorders can benefit from therapy. In this new edition - based on the treatment of over a hundred patients with antisocial and borderline personality disorders - Kate Davidson demonstrates that clinicians using cognitive therapy can reduce a patient's tendency to deliberately self-harm and to harm others; it also improves their psychological well-being. Case studies and therapeutic techniques are described as well as current evidence from research trials for this group of patients. Cognitive Therapy for Personality Disorders provides a thorough description of how to apply cognitive behavioural therapy to patients who are traditionally regarded as being difficult to treat: those with borderline personality disorders and those with antisocial personality disorders. The book contains detailed descriptions and strategies of how to:
  • formulate a case within the cognitive model of personality disorders
  • overcome problems encountered when treating personality disordered patients
  • understand how therapy may develop over a course of treatment.
This clinician's guide to cognitive behavioural therapy in the treatment of borderline and antisocial personality disorder will be essential reading for psychiatrists, clinical and counselling psychologists, therapists, mental health nurses, and students on associated training courses.

Witches, Wife Beaters, and Whores: Common Law and Common Folk in Early America

Product : Witches, Wife Beaters, and Whores: Common Law and Common Folk in Early America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The early American legal system permeated the lives of colonists and reflected their sense of what was right and wrong, honorable and dishonorable, moral and immoral. In a compelling book full of the extraordinary stories of ordinary people, Elaine Forman Crane reveals the ways in which early Americans clashed with or conformed to the social norms established by the law. As trials throughout the country reveal, alleged malefactors such as witches, wife beaters, and whores, as well as debtors, rapists, and fornicators, were as much a part of the social landscape as farmers, merchants, and ministers. Ordinary people "made" law by establishing and enforcing informal rules of conduct. Codified by a handshake or over a mug of ale, such agreements became custom and custom became "law." Furthermore, by submitting to formal laws initiated from above, common folk legitimized a government that depended on popular consent to rule with authority. In this book we meet Marretie Joris, a New Amsterdam entrepreneur who sues Gabriel de Haes for calling her a whore; peer cautiously at Christian Stevenson, a Bermudian witch as bad "as any in the world;" and learn that Hannah Dyre feared to be alone with her husband-and subsequently died after a beating. We travel with Comfort Taylor as she crosses Narragansett Bay with Cuff, an enslaved ferry captain, whom she accuses of attempted rape, and watch as Samuel Banister pulls the trigger of a gun that kills the sheriff's deputy who tried to evict Banister from his home. And finally, we consider the promiscuous Marylanders Thomas Harris and Ann Goldsborough, who parented four illegitimate children, ran afoul of inheritance laws, and resolved matters only with the assistance of a ghost. Through the six trials she skillfully reconstructs here, Crane offers a surprising new look at how early American society defined and punished aberrant behavior, even as it defined itself through its legal system.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Before establishing himself as the "master of disaster" with the 1970s films The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, Irwin Allen created four of television's most exciting and enduring science-fiction series: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants. These 1960s series were full of Allen's favorite tricks, techniques and characteristic touches, and influenced other productions from the original Star Trek forward. Every science-fiction show owes something to Allen, yet none has equaled his series' pace, excitement, or originality. This detailed examination and documentation of the premise and origin of the four shows offers an objective evaluation of every episode. A close-up look at these television landmarks demonstrates that when Irwin Allen's television episodes were good, they were great--and when they were bad, they were still terrific fun.

Positivity in Algebraic Geometry I: Classical Setting: Line Bundles and Linear Series

Product : Positivity in Algebraic Geometry I: Classical Setting: Line Bundles and Linear Series
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This two volume work on "Positivity in Algebraic Geometry" contains a contemporary account of a body of work in complex algebraic geometry loosely centered around the theme of positivity. Topics in Volume I include ample line bundles and linear series on a projective variety, the classical theorems of Lefschetz and Bertini and their modern outgrowths, vanishing theorems, and local positivity. Volume II begins with a survey of positivity for vector bundles, and moves on to a systematic development of the theory of multiplier ideals and their applications. A good deal of this material has not previously appeared in book form, and substantial parts are worked out here in detail for the first time. At least a third of the book is devoted to concrete examples, applications, and pointers to further developments. Volume I is more elementary than Volume II, and, for the most part, it can be read without access to Volume II. Both volumes are also available as hardcover editions as Vols. 48 and 49 in the series "Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete."

Welfare Warriors: The Welfare Rights Movement in the United States

Product : Welfare Warriors: The Welfare Rights Movement in the United States
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In her study of the welfare rights movement, Premilla Nadasen breaks new ground by tracing the history of a distinctive brand of feminism that emerged in the 1960s. Comprising almost exclusively single mothers on welfare, the welfare rights movement sought to organize the poor to make demands upon the system and in the process create a more humane welfare program. By recovering the voices of movement women and their experiences as mothers, racial minorities, welfare recipients, tenants, consumers, community members, feminists and activists, this book demonstrates how race, class, gender, and other identities continually reshape and redefine one another.

Boll Weevil Blues: Cotton, Myth, and Power in the American South

Product : Boll Weevil Blues: Cotton, Myth, and Power in the American South
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Between the 1890s and the early 1920s, the boll weevil slowly ate its way across the Cotton South from Texas to the Atlantic Ocean. At the turn of the century, some Texas counties were reporting crop losses of over 70 percent, as were areas of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi. By the time the boll weevil reached the limits of the cotton belt, it had destroyed much of the region’s chief cash crop—tens of billions of pounds of cotton, worth nearly a trillion dollars.  As staggering as these numbers may seem, James C. Giesen demonstrates that it was the very idea of the boll weevil and the struggle over its meanings that most profoundly changed the South—as different groups, from policymakers to blues singers, projected onto this natural disaster the consequences they feared and the outcomes they sought. Giesen asks how the myth of the boll weevil’s lasting impact helped obscure the real problems of the region—those caused not by insects, but by landowning patterns, antiquated credit systems, white supremacist ideology, and declining soil fertility. "Boll Weevil Blues" brings together these cultural, environmental, and agricultural narratives in a novel and important way that allows us to reconsider the making of the modern American South.

Early Recollections: Interpretive Method and Application

Product : Early Recollections: Interpretive Method and Application
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Our present and our past are manifestly intertwined. Memories are not identical simulations of the past, but are stories shaped by our current perspectives of others, the world, and ourselves. As a result, the gathering of early recollections can be used as a projective technique that indicates our strengths, goals, lines of movement, fears, and a host of other relevant psychological data. Early Recollections are a quick, accurate, and cost-effective personality assessment demonstrated to have similar reliability and validity to other personality measures. Both a comprehensive and accessible text, Early Recollections: Interpretative Method and Application presents a constructivist approach and systematic development of early recollection theory. Mosak and Di Pietro invite students to think and actively engage in problem solving rather than merely read for content. Supported by step-by-step examples, this book also offers a perspective suitable for application by Adlerian practitioners, non-Adlerian clinicians, and all other mental health professionals and students seeking a new framework for evaluating personality.

A Government Out of Sight: The Mystery of National Authority in Nineteenth-Century America

Product : A Government Out of Sight: The Mystery of National Authority in Nineteenth-Century America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While it is obvious that America's state and local governments were consistently active during the nineteenth century, a period dominated by laissez-faire, political historians of twentieth-century America have assumed that the national government did very little during this period. A Government Out of Sight challenges this premise, chronicling the ways in which the national government intervened powerfully in the lives of nineteenth-century Americans through the law, subsidies, and the use of third parties (including state and local governments), while avoiding bureaucracy. Americans have always turned to the national government - especially for economic development and expansion - and in the nineteenth century even those who argued for a small, nonintrusive central government demanded that the national government expand its authority to meet the nation's challenges. In revising our understanding of the ways in which Americans turned to the national government throughout this period, this study fundamentally alters our perspective on American political development in the twentieth century, shedding light on contemporary debates between progressives and conservatives about the proper size of government and government programs and subsidies that even today remain "out of sight."

A First Course in Bayesian Statistical Methods

Product : A First Course in Bayesian Statistical Methods
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides a compact self-contained introduction to the theory and application of Bayesian statistical methods. The book is accessible to readers having a basic familiarity with probability, yet allows more advanced readers to quickly grasp the principles underlying Bayesian theory and methods. The examples and computer code allow the reader to understand and implement basic Bayesian data analyses using standard statistical models and to extend the standard models to specialized data analysis situations. The book begins with fundamental notions such as probability, exchangeability and Bayes' rule, and ends with modern topics such as variable selection in regression, generalized linear mixed effects models, and semiparametric copula estimation. Numerous examples from the social, biological and physical sciences show how to implement these methodologies in practice. Monte Carlo summaries of posterior distributions play an important role in Bayesian data analysis. The open-source R statistical computing environment provides sufficient functionality to make Monte Carlo estimation very easy for a large number of statistical models and example R-code is provided throughout the text. Much of the example code can be run a oeas isa ' in R, and essentially all of it can be run after downloading the relevant datasets from the companion website for this book.

Secondary Algebra Education

Product : Secondary Algebra Education
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nowadays, algebra education is subject to worldwide scrutiny. Different opinions on its goals, approaches and achievements are at the heart of debates among teachers, educators, researchers and decision makers. What should the teaching of algebra in secondary school mathematics look like? Should it focus on procedural skills or on algebraic insight? Should it stress practice or integrate technology? Do we require formal proofs and notations, or do informal representations suffice? Is algebra in school an abstract subject, or does it take its relevance from application in (daily life) contexts? What should secondary school algebra education that prepares for higher education and professional practice in the twenty-first century look like? This book addresses these questions, and aims to inform in-service and future teachers, mathematics educators and researchers on recent insights in the domain, and on specific topics and themes such as the historical development of algebra, the role of productive practice, and algebra in science and engineering in particular. The authors, all affiliated with the Freudenthal Institute for Science and Mathematics Education in the Netherlands, share a common philosophy, which acts as a sometimes nearly invisible backbone for the overall view on algebra education: the theory of realistic mathematics education. From this point of departure, different perspectives are chosen to describe the opportunities and pitfalls of today's and tomorrow's algebra education. Inspiring examples and reflections illustrate current practice and explore the unknown future of algebra education to appropriately meet students' needs.

Homer and the Odyssey

Product : Homer and the Odyssey
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Who was Homer? This book takes us beyond the legends of the blind bard or the wandering poet to explore an author about whom nothing is known, except for his works. It offers a reading of the ancient biographies as clues to the reception of the Homeric poems in Antiquity and provides an introduction to the oral tradition which lay at the source of the Homeric epics. Above all, it takes us into the world of the Odyssey, a world that lies between history and fiction. It guides the reader through a poem which rivals the modern novel in its complexity, demonstrating the unity of the poem as a whole. It defines the many and varied figures of otherness by which the Greeks of the archaic period defined themselves and underlines the values promoted by the poem's depictions of men, women, and gods. Finally, it asks why, throughout the centuries from Homer to Kazantzakis and Joyce, the hero who never forgets his homeland and dreams constantly of return has never ceased to be the incarnation of what it is to be human. This translation is a revised and much expanded version of the original French text, and includes a new chapter on the representation of women in the Odyssey and an updated bibliography.

The A to Z of Jainism

Product : The A to Z of Jainism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jain is the term used for a person who has faith in the teachings of the Jinas (_Spiritual Victors_). Jinas are human beings who have overcome all passions (kasayas) and have attained enlightenment or omniscience (kevala-jnana), who teach the truths they realized to others, and who attain liberation (moksa) from the cycle of rebirth (samsara). At the core of these teachings is nonviolence (ahimsa), which has remained the guiding principle of Jain ethics and practices to this day. In comparison with other religious traditions of South Asia, Jains are few in number, comprising less than one percent of India's population. The lay and mendicant communities of the Jain, however, have maintained an unbroken presence in India for more than 2,500 years and have influenced its culture throughout this time. The A to Z of Jainism covers the history of Jainism that spans a period of more than 2,500 years. The history, values, concepts, and scriptures; eminent mendicant, lay leaders, and scholars; and places, institutions, social, and cultural factors are covered in over 450 dictionary entries. This comprehensive reference work also includes an introductory essay, explanation of the Jain scriptures, chronology, appendixes, and bibliography. This book provides an excellent introduction and overview to Jainism for scholars, students, and general readers.

Bounded Rationality and Industrial Organization

Product : Bounded Rationality and Industrial Organization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Consumers can act rationally only to a certain extent. They may have inconsistent, context-dependent preferences, or simply not enough brain-power to evaluate and compare complicated products. Thus the standard model of consumer behavior-which depends upon an ideal market in which consumers are boundlessly rational-is outdated. While behavioral economists have for some time confirmed and characterized these inconsistencies, the logical next step is to look at the implications they have in markets. This is the objective of Bounded Rationality and Industrial Organization. Grounded in key observations in consumer psychology, the book develops non-standard models of "boundedly rational" consumer behavior and embeds them into familiar models of markets. It then rigorously analyzes each model in the tradition of microeconomic theory, leading to a richer, more realistic picture of consumer behavior. The book is structured as a collection of lectures for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, but will also appeal to readers familiar with the topic, as it advances the current literature in the field. Ran Spiegler's contribution will be a welcome and fresh insight into why real consumers act the way they do, and what this means for the markets they inhabit.

Description : Fifteen years and roughly 60,000 hours of research are included in this book. For the most part this book is a reference material. Also included are details of ancestor voyages, accounts of major incidents, the impacts those incidents had on these families, and more. There are steamer ship voyages documented for 27 families and for 795 individuals. There are 32 family trees presented. The Index includes 731 unique surnames and 2948 individuals documented in the family trees presented. Many families have their own hopes and dreams of being descended from royalty, from someone famous, or simply having one "interesting" story about their ancestors. Frank had an early interest in his family history, starting when he was old enough to take part in family discussions about their suspicions of mafia involvement in their family's past. There were many such discussions, but Frank just knew there had to be more, especially since the older family members would staunchly avoid taking part in all such discussions. Sure enough, there was more-a lot more. Frank ("Frankie") Palisi was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. His father's family is Sicilian, and his mother's heritage is Cajun French. Frank is the third generation of his Sicilian line to be born in New Orleans. He graduated from the University of Houston at Clear Lake, and works as a Sr. Project Manager in the technology field.

Enabling Praxis: Challenges for Education

Product : Enabling Praxis: Challenges for Education
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a range of professions, professional practice today is under threat. It is endangered, for example, by pressures of bureaucratic control, commodification, marketization, and the standardisation of practice in some professions. In these times, there is a need for deeper understandings of professional practice and how it develops through professional careers. Enabling Praxis: Challenges for education explores these questions in the context of the initial and continuing professional education of teachers. It presents a theory of the development of praxis - morally committed action oriented by tradition - to show the ways praxis is enabled and constrained by the cultural-discursive, material and social-political conditions under which professional practice occurs. It introduces the notion of 'practice architectures' to show how particular conditions for practice shape the possibilities of praxis. The way these processes work is illustrated by detailed exploration of a number of cases of praxis development in a variety of educational settings, at a variety of levels - in teacher education for schools and for vocational education and training, in the continuing professional education of teachers, in educational administration, and in informal, community-based education for sustainability initiatives. The book provides conceptual resources that permit deeper analysis of the character, conduct and consequences of professional practice. It concludes with challenges for education, and for initial and continuing teacher education, suggesting that the contemporary threats to education as a professional practice call for revitalisation of the profession, professional bodies and the intellectualtraditions that orient and guide educational practice.

Global Value Chains in a Postcrisis World: A Development Perspective

Product : Global Value Chains in a Postcrisis World: A Development Perspective
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For the first time since World War II, global output will drop (-1.7%); per capita income will fall in more than 50 developing countries; net private capital flows will likely turn negative a more than $700 billion drop from the 2007 peak; and trade is expected to decline by 6.1% in 2009 the worst decline in 80 years. In response to this global downturn, a number of governments have passed stimulus packages and other measures that aim to preserve domestic industries and jobs, and sometimes discriminate against foreign producers (e.g. buy local laws). The most recent forecasts announce a re-bound of trade in 2010 (+3.8%) and 2011 (+6.9%), primarily driven by developing countries.All three elements (dropping demand on major markets, policy responses to the crisis, and developing countries-led recovery) potentially have significant implications for global production, trade, and value chains. How have lead firms responded? Have they changed their traditional supply chain strategy and relocated and/or outsourced part of their production? How will those changes affect developing countries? What should be the policy responses to these changes? How to best prepare developing countries for recovery and integration in the new global production chains?

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this second volume of his history of naval power in the 20th century, H. P. Willmott follows the fortunes of the established seafaring nations of Europe along with two upstarts -- the United States and Japan. Emerging from World War I in command of the seas, Great Britain saw its supremacy weakened through neglect and in the face of more committed rivals. Britain's grand Coronation Review of 1937 marked the apotheosis of a sea power slipping into decline. Meanwhile, Britain's rivals and soon-to-be enemies were embarking on significant naval building programs that would soon change the nature of war at sea in ways that neither they nor their rivals anticipated. By the end of a new world war, the United States had taken command of two oceans, having placed its industrial might behind technologies that further defined the arena of naval power above and below the waves, where stealth and the ability to strike at great distance would soon rewrite the rules of war and of peace. This splendid volume further enhances Willmott's stature as the dean of naval historians.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This collection of new studies in ethnomethodology addresses sociology's classical questions by developing that strand of ethnomethodological inquiry dealing with membership categorization. This book provides detailed studies of members' use of membership categories across various settings from the O.J. Simpson trial, via TV commercials and news headlines, to school staff and referral meetings. The studies show that category use is occasional, that culture is always internal to action; accordingly sociology's key theoretical problems and substantive areas are re-specified in terms of members' methods of membership categorization. This is the first collection of original, unpublished studies by internationally renowned practitioners of ethnomethodology of members' uses of the descriptive resources of language to describe persons.

Twenty years in the making, this epic artist's project features carefully selected young men -- not big or overly built -- who exemplify for Gorman a perfected state, allowing him to frame grace, beauty, and elegance in the form of the male nude. Included amongst the 240-plus portraits are many of Gorman's friends and acquaintances, as well as professional models, many of whom had never posed nude before. The cumulative effect of "As I See it" creates a pleasurable zone of contemplation, allowing one to reexamine the precepts of beauty within a refreshing framework of exalted maleness. According to Gorman, "As I see it, they're not really boys, yet they're not really men. They are caught somewhere in between -- almost at that point of maturity that defines masculinity".
