A Glance Into Ottoman Bosnia

Product : A Glance Into Ottoman Bosnia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At the age of twenty-two, Matija Mauranic crossed the River Sava into Ottoman Bosnia. It was 1839, the dawn of the Ottoman reform period known as the Tanzimat. In this fascinating and sympathetic eyewitness account, Mauranic records his encounters with Ottoman Bosnian society at every level-from peasants in the fields mistaking him for a demon, to townspeople in taverns and shops and an audience at the pasha's court. Published in association with the Bosnian Institute. Matija Mauranic was the brother of the ban (governor) of Croatia. His firm was contracted to build roads, and he traveled widely throughout the region.

Under the Radar: A Conversation on Spiritual Leadership

Product : Under the Radar: A Conversation on Spiritual Leadership
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Where are the leaders like Jesus? Perhaps they are not where you think they are. In Under the Radar, Douglas Webster lays out a Scriptural challenge to recent trends in church leadership, which are quickly turning pastors into CEOs and their churches into multi-million dollar marketing machines out of touch with their biblical mission. Working from the Gospel of Luke, Doug Webster shows where we've gone wrong and what an authentic Christian leader looks like according to Scripture. Leadership in the name of Jesus, he argues, is different from any other kind of leadership in the world. Nothing the world has to offer comes even close. Jesus turns everything upside down, and inside out, and nothing comes out the same. What's more, to serve Christ often means to fly under public recognition. Here is essential reading for all who would lead the people of God. Douglas D. Webster (Ph.D., St. Michael's College, Toronto School of Theology) is pastor of First Presbyterian Church in San Diego, California. In addition to teaching courses at Bethel Seminary (San Diego) and Tyndale Seminary (Toronto), Doug has also led pastor training seminars in Ghana and Mongolia. He is the author of several books, including Soulcraft, A Passion for Christ and The Discipline of Surrender.

The Transforming Gospel: The Mission of Francois Coillard and Basuto Evangelists in Barotseland

Product : The Transforming Gospel: The Mission of Francois Coillard and Basuto Evangelists in Barotseland
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the story of the origins and growth of Protestant missions in central southern Africa. In 1833 the Paris Mission helped found the Christian Church of Lesotho; in the 1870s a second wave of French missionaries became convinced that Africans themselves could bring the good news to others on the continent. The author highlights the heroism and dedication of missionaries like Fran ois Coillard and his wife, and the fragile and often inadequate support from the minority groups of French-speaking Protestantism in Europe, caught up at the time in the throes of the church-versus-state debate. The Church of the Zambezi, in the area now known as Zambia, was firmly established by 1930 and became autonomous in 1964.

Riveting Melodrama: The Rise and Scope of the Telenovela

Product : Riveting Melodrama: The Rise and Scope of the Telenovela
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While telenovelas are of Hispanic country origin, they are not simply a Spanish language soap opera. Soap operas are designed to be never-ending and in fact extend for many decades if successful. Telenovelas are created as a type of mini-series with a defined beginning and end, normally lasting several months. This book celebrates the telenovela per Hispanic country, plus takes a look at the rise of the telenovela in the United States through both Spanish language television world and in English versions. Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.

Product : Near-Death Experiences: Afterlife, Out-Of-Body Experience, Life After Life, Pam Reynolds, Flatliners, Near-Death Studies, Dannion
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 30. Chapters: Afterlife, Out-of-body experience, Life After Life, Pam Reynolds, Flatliners, Near-death studies, Dannion Brinkley, Life review, Myth of Er, Raymond Moody, Betty Eadie, Embraced by the Light, Beyond and Back, George G. Ritchie, 90 Minutes in Heaven, International Association for Near-Death Studies, Journal of Near-Death Studies, Return from Tomorrow, Saved by the Light, Tunnel of light. Excerpt: The afterlife (also referred to as life after death, the Hereafter, the Next World, or the Other Side) is the belief that a part of, or essence of, an individual which carries with it and confers personal identity survives the death of the body of this world and this lifetime, by natural or supernatural means. In some popular views, this continued existence often takes place in a spiritual realm, and in other popular views, the individual may be reborn into this world and begin the life cycle over again. In this latter view, such rebirths and deaths may take place over and over again continuously until the individual gains entry to a spiritual realm. Major views on the afterlife derive from religion, esotericism and metaphysics. The dead are usually believed to go to a specific plane of existence after death (other than eternal oblivion), typically believed to be determined by a god or divine judge, based on their actions or beliefs during physical life. In contrast, the term afterlife refers to another life in which only the "essence" of the being is preserved, and "reincarnation" is another life on Earth or possibly within the same universe. There are three different types of views on the afterlife In metaphysical models, theists generally believe some sort of afterlife awaits people when they die. Members of some generally non-theistic religions such as Buddhism, tend to believe in an afterlife, but without reference to a...

Women and Information Technology: Research on Underrepresentation

Product : Women and Information Technology: Research on Underrepresentation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2007. Computing remains a heavily male-dominated field even after twenty-five years of extensive efforts to promote female participation. The contributors to "Women and Information Technology" look at reasons for the persistent gender imbalance in computing and explore some strategies intended to reverse the downward trend. The studies included are rigorous social science investigations; they rely on empirical evidence--not rhetoric, hunches, folk wisdom, or off-the-cuff speculation about supposed innate differences between men and women. Taking advantage of the recent surge in research in this area, the editors present the latest findings of both qualitative and quantitative studies. Each section begins with an overview of the literature on current research in the field, followed by individual studies. The first section investigates the relationship between gender and information technology among preteens and adolescents, with each study considering what could lead girls' interest in computing to diverge from boys'; the second section, on higher education, includes a nationwide study of computing programs and a cross-national comparison of computing education; the final section, on pathways into the IT workforce, considers both traditional and nontraditional paths to computing careers.

Surgical Management of Nasal Obstruction: Rhinologic Perspective, Number 2

Product : Surgical Management of Nasal Obstruction: Rhinologic Perspective, Number 2
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this 2-volume edition of Otolaryngologic Clinics of North America experts in the surgical management of the nasal airway address the range of anatomic abnormalities that contribute to nasal obstruction, and describe in detail the surgical methods available for treatment of these problems. In Volume 1, expert rhinologists address sinonasal aspects of surgery for nasal obstruction. In Volume 2, experts in rhinoplasty describe surgical interventions for nasal obstruction from a facial plastic surgery perspective. Together, these two volumes should increase the otolaryngologist's armamentarium for the comprehensive surgical management of nasal airway obstruction. Many aspects of nasal airway obstruction may be mitigated by medical management alone. For instance, swelling from allergic rhinitis typically responds well to allergy treatment. In a number of cases, however, medical intervention is insufficient. When medical management fails, and anatomic abnormalities contribute significantly to nasal obstruction, surgical intervention may be indicated. Septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy, internal and external nasal valve collapse, sinusitis, polyps, encephaloceles, and tumors are just a few of the varied sources of nasal obstruction. Equally diverse are the surgical means available to the contemporary otolaryngologist to address these anatomic abnormalities.

The Odyssey of a Middle School Teacher: I Swear I'm Not Making This "Stuff" Up!

Product : The Odyssey of a Middle School Teacher: I Swear I'm Not Making This "Stuff" Up!
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Odyssey of a Middle School Teacher is a story of one teacher's pursuit of a teaching certificate. Dr. St. Clair did not enter education by way of a teacher education program. He did it by "sticking it out" and going, when it necessitated, from one-school-to-another until he obtained a "license to teach." Anyone who has taught has stories to tell but few teachers have faced the challenges that would make them look in the mirror and ask: What am I doing here? Commute 150 miles a day? The target of an act of reckless endangerment? Bogus police charges filed? And, yes, there is much more: experiences that range from the absurd to the sublime...and all told with a keen sense of humor and wit. Who should read it? Anyone who wants to be a teacher, whether they are in a traditional Education curriculum or a "career switcher." All will find a pearl or two of wisdom, not to mention a good laugh or two, in the Odyssey. Dr. St. Clair is a retired middle school teacher who lives in Tidewater Virginia. He lives with his wife and 5 cats. He is an omnivorous reader with tastes ranging from science to history and politics. He enjoys travel, music, plays and movies. He rarely reads fiction but can recite the dialogue from the Godfather, Scent of a Woman, or Field of Dreams from memory. An avid learner (he has five college degrees including a Ph.D.) and teacher (having taught at both the college & middle school levels during his career), Dr. St. Clair recently spent 5 months teaching conversational English to college level students at the Shenyang Institute of Engineering in the Peoples Republic of China. He is planning another book about his childhood tentatively entitled: "Life on the Alligator Ditch: Growing Up in the Cornfields of Chicago." Alligators and Cornfields in Chicago, since when? Well, it was all, "Once upon a time..."

We need more like her to give us that grand plucking of the guts." - Tom Piccirilli, author of The Midnight Road and Waiting My Turn to Go Under the Knife, from his introduction "There is nothing illusory or mechanical about these poems. They take us on a marvelously eclectic journey, with a cast that includes a black hole voicing its thoughts and a dead man coming 'Home For the Holidays.' Read and be dazzled." - Christopher Conlon, author of Mary Falls: Requiem for Mrs. Surratt and Midnight on Mourn Street

Effra Verse - Poetry by Mental Health Survivors

Product : Effra Verse - Poetry by Mental Health Survivors
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Effra Verse is the product of the "Effra Poets' Project" - a creative writing poetry initiative, brought into being by a group of individuals who use Effra Resource Centre in Brixton London. The Centre's purpose and function is to provide a safe space in which mental health service users may enjoy social interaction, support and encouragement in their daily lives - A necessity for people who experience significant mental distress of one kind or another in their lives. It is a safe place in an otherwise seemingly unsafe world, a much needed asset of considerable value in the London Borough of Lambeth. It is jointly run by the Borough Council, NHS Lambeth, and the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust 'SLAM'. In 2006, a group of Effra service users piloted a small paperback version entitled the 'Effra Verse.' Using in-house resources and the services of a local printer for a modest sum, it was well-received within a small circle. In many ways it was a dry run for the present, professionally printed and published offering, which we hope will receive a sympathetic reading - amongst poetry enthusiasts and other well-disposed hearts. The publication of this present printed volume, which is accompanied by an audio disc of some of our poets speaking and singing their own verse has been generously funded by SLaM Charitable Funds. Users of mental health services, whose image has for far too long been less than positive in the eyes of the wider community, have tended not to reveal news of their own experiences of mental ill-health for fear of stigmatisation and the real hurt which may result. Many professionals all too often fear little better. Many service users can also recall some GP's referring to psychiatrists and psychiatric workers as mere quacks. Fortunately, these days there are real signs of a far more grown-up attitude emerging. Perhaps this current volume will lend support to such welcome changes regarding the real status of mental health. After all, statistics testify to the increasing prevalence of mental ill health in the community at large. Addressing and adjusting to the demands upon the individual made by modern ways of living tends to lead to a disregard of the spiritual needs of the creature. A simple spontaneous response to the unfolding events of life is what we are designed for as developing beings. Modern life, some may say 'western' life, is full of constrictions and imperatives that crowd out the natural response. The contributors hope that you, the reader, will derive some pleasure and entertainment from these pages. We are not only well-intentioned, but are also highly motivated. The writing, design and decoration are all the work of service users involved in the Effra Poets' Project. Poetry is a natural balm, so smile and feel good with this book and accompanying audio CD at hand; ideally when you are in bed, the park or by the ocean, at a moment when it is right to put away the cares of the day.

Poet in the Mall: 180 Haiku + 21 Poems

Product : Poet in the Mall: 180 Haiku + 21 Poems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ed Bremson spends a lot of time in shopping malls. Many days of the year, when the weather is not particularly nice, he goes there and walks for an hour. While he is walking he keeps all his senses open for ideas he can use to write poems or haiku. In fact, one of his college professors once called Ed "the Walt Whitman of the mall" because of all the mall poetry he wrote for class. Poet in the Mall is the result of all that time spent walking, observing, sweating, freezing, and writing. Dedicated to Federico Garcia Lorca, and somewhat reminiscent of his Poet in New York, it contains various poems, many haiku, and an abundance of images. We are all familiar with modern shopping malls, but after reading this book, and reflecting on the observations contained therein, we may never look at the mall in the same way again.

Feedback: Television Against Democracy

Product : Feedback: Television Against Democracy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : American television embodies a paradox: it is a privately owned and operated public communications network that most citizens are unable to participate in except as passive specators. Television creates an image of community while preventing the formation of actual social ties because behind its simulated exchange of opinions lies a highly centralized corporate structure that is profoundly antidemocratic. In "Feedback, " David Joselit describes the privatized public sphere of television and recounts the tactics developed by artists and media activists in the 1960s and 1970s to break open its closed circuit. The figures whose work Joselit examines--among them Nam June Paik, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Abbie Hoffman, Andy Warhol, and Melvin Van Peebles--staged political interventions within the space of television. Joselit identifies three kinds of such image-events: feedback, which can be both disabling noise and rational response--as when Abbie Hoffman hijacked television time for the Yippies with flamboyant stunts directed to the media; the image-virus, which proliferates parasitically, invading, transforming, and even blocking systems--as in Nam June Paik's synthesized videotapes and installations; and the avatar, a quasi-fictional form of identity available to anyone, which can function as a political actor--as in Melvin Van Peebles's invention of Sweet Sweetback, an African-American hero who appealed to a broad audience and influenced styles of Black Power activism. These strategies, writes Joselit, remain valuable today in a world where the overlapping information circuits of television and the Internet offer different opportunities for democratic participation. In "Feedback, " Joselit analyzes such midcentury image-events using the procedures and categories of art history. The trope of figure/ground reversal, for instance, is used to assess acts of representation in a variety of media--including the medium of politics. In a televisual world, Joselit argues, where democracy is conducted through images, art history has the capacity to become a political science.

Yoruba Legends - Illustrated Edition

Product : Yoruba Legends - Illustrated Edition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : NOTE: This book has been illustrated and published by the students of Edgbarrow School in Berkshire, England as a special project to raise funds for their Ghana Sponsorship campaign. DESCRIPTION: The Yoruba people are descendants from a variety of West African communities. They are united by Geography, History, Religion and most importantly their Language. Many years ago, before the advent of the West African slave trade, the Yoruba people inhabited an area which stretched, along the coast of West Africa, all the way inward and down to Angola in South West Africa. Today this is not the case. The legends and fairy stories in this book belong to the Yoruba. They relate the adventures of men and animals, and try to explain the mysteries of Nature-Why Women have Long Hair, How the Leopard got his Spots, the Three Magicians, the Boa-Constrictor, How the Elephant got his Trunk and more. These stories grew from the imagination of the people. We read these folk-tales for their quaintness and humour, for their sympathy with Nature, and because we find in them the ideas and ideals, not just of one man, but of a race of people. IN modern times we have begun paying close attention to folklore - old tales, not invented by one man, but belonging to the whole people; not written down, but told by parents to their children, and so handed on for hundreds of years. The legends express primitive notions of right and wrong. As a rule, the wicked are punished and the good rewarded; and that, we feel, is as it should be. We may weep at the death of rascally Tortoise, but we may also feel that he somehow has deserved his fate

Description : The term Cape Coloureds refers to the modern-day descendants of slave labourers imported into South Africa by Dutch settlers as well as to other groups of mixed ancestry originating in the present-day Western Cape. They are the predominant population group found in the Western Cape Province. Their population size is roughly 4 million. Most Cape Coloureds are mother tongue Afrikaans speakers, as a result of their cultural development in the Dutch and Afrikaans-speaking areas of South Africa; but a minority are English speaking. Slaves of Malay ancestry were brought from Indonesia, Malaysia, Madagascar, and Mozambique; and from these diverse origins they gradually developed into a grouping; along with coloured people (African and European origin); that was subsequently classified as a single major ethnical grouping under the Apartheid regime. In many cases the slaves were imported to be concubines and wives to single male Dutch settlers. People from India and the islands within the Indian Ocean region were also taken to the Cape and sold into slavery by the Dutch settlers. The Indian slaves were almost invariably given Christian names but their places of origin were indicated in the records of sales and other documents so that it is possible to get an idea of the ratio of slaves from different regions. These slaves were, however, dispersed and lost their cultural Indian identity in the course of time, hence being labelled Cape Coloureds. Much racial mixture has thus occurred over

What's New about You?

Product : What's New about You?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Not every new believer has a friend or mentor strong in the Lord who can walk alongside them in their new life. New believers have just made the most important decision in their life--to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior--but perhaps they know little or nothing about the Christian faith, and Christians might be using words they don't understand to tell them what is happening in their life. This booklet is like a mentor who explains it all using pertinent Scriptures and defining all Christian terms clearly. Then it gives suggestions of what to do next. It is a great booklet to have on hand to give out to new believers.

Ghosts at Gettysburg: An Oliver Family Adventure

Product : Ghosts at Gettysburg: An Oliver Family Adventure
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Gettysburg-Site of the epic battle that forever changed the United States. Some also say it is the most haunted place on earth. In "Ghosts at Gettysburg," the third Oliver Family Adventure, the Oliver family visits Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the three-day battle. While Tyler and Tommy participate in a re-enactment, learning about the battle and those that fought it, their sister Paige and mother Judy reluctantly learn of the town's haunted history through frightening encounters of their own. On their very first evening there they see pictures of glowing orbs on the battlefield and meet a mysterious woman who seems to be everywhere. While Tommy marches with Confederate troops and Tyler helps man the cannons atop Cemetery Ridge, the Oliver women encounter the ghosts of a grieving father and a sad young soldier, forcing them to rethink their ideas about ghosts, spirits and hauntings. When the battle reaches its climax at Pickett's Charge the boys find themselves on opposite sides of that bloody clash. There they learn what it was to be a soldier in the American Civil War.

The Radio Boys' First Wireless

Product : The Radio Boys' First Wireless
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is very appropriate at this moment when radio has taken the country by storm, and aroused an enthusiasm never before equaled, that the possibilities for boys in this art should be brought out in the interesting and readable manner shown in the first book of this series. Radio is still a young science, and some of the most remarkable advances in it have been contributed by amateurs - that is, by boy experimenters. It is never too late to start in the fascinating game, and the reward for the successful experimenter is rich both in honor and recompense. Just take the case of E. H. Armstrong, one of the most famous of all the amateurs in this ountry. He started in as a boy at home, in Yonkers, experimenting with home-made apparatus, and discovered the circuit that has revolutionized radio transmission and reception. His circuit has made it possible to broadcast music, and speech, and it has brought him world-wide fame.

Nobody's Girl: Novel Based on a True Story

Product : Nobody's Girl: Novel Based on a True Story
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is a story of a girl named Aurora whose mother was pregnant with her when the family migrated from Mexico to the United States during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and who like many other immigrants, were completely unprepared for the hardships they would have to endure. With limited skills, and no knowledge of English, they would embark in a life-changing adventure to a foreign country that would prove disastrous in many ways for her. During Aurora's formative years, most family secrets were dealt with complete silence when questioned by her. Over the years she learned that during their journey to the United States her sister had died and had been buried in the desert and that her real father had been separated from the family before they reached their destination. The lack of an adequate explanation as to why as an infant she was taken to live with total strangers for a few years, and later as a young child, was also permitted to travel to Los Angeles with her alcoholic godfather to stay with his family every summer, contributed to her feelings of not really belonging. Little did she know that when she attended a neighbor's wedding when she was eighteen years old, she would meet a total stranger that would change her life forever.

Face the Facts and Learn the Only One Way of Escape

Product : Face the Facts and Learn the Only One Way of Escape
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Face the Facts" and "Fill the Earth" were the titles of two public addresses delivered in 1938 by J. F. Rutherford, who was then President of the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society. The speeches were printed in booklet form later that year. On the second page of that booklet Judge Rutherford claims his message is from Almighty God. These lectures were described years later by the WTB&TS as "fearless, forthright," "powerful" and "striking" messages. This enlarged replica reprint of the original booklet can be examined in the light of recorded history to see if these powerful striking speeches were not also something else: completely inaccurate and false.

Yet we are so created that without something to wonder at we should find life scarcely worth living. That fact does not make igno- rance bliss, or make it folly to be wise.'' For the wisest man never gets beyond the reach of novelty, nor can ever make it his boast that there is nothing he is ignorant of; on the contrary, the wiser he becomes the more clearly he sees how much there is of which he remains in ignorance. The more he knows, the more he will find to wonder at. My professional life has been a constant record of disillusion, and many things that seem wonderful to most men are the every-day commonplaces of my business. But I have never been without some seeming marvel to pique my curiosity and challenge my investigation. In this book I have set down some of the stories of strange folk and unusual performers that I have gathered in many years of such research.

Description : The great fact, and the Eternal Fact, in the life of Jesus was his death, because of our sins, upon the Cross. This was the fact which St. Paul declared he preached to the Corinthians "first of all"; not that they were the first to hear it; not that it merely came first in the enumeration of the great truths of the Gospel; but that it was first in importance, the Eternal Fact of Redemption. The steps, therefore, by which Jesus was brought to the Cross are of great interest to Christian lawyers. Here is a careful study from a lawyer's standpoint of the trial of Jesus.

The Honest Courtesan: Veronica Franco, Citizen and Writer in Sixteenth-Century Venice

Product : The Honest Courtesan: Veronica Franco, Citizen and Writer in Sixteenth-Century Venice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Venetian courtesan has long captured the imagination as a female symbol of sexual license, elegance, beauty, and unruliness. What then to make of the "cortigiana onesta"--the honest courtesan who recast virtue as intellectual integrity and offered wit and refinement in return for patronage and a place in public life? Veronica Franco (1546-1591) was such a woman, a writer and citizen of Venice, whose published poems and familiar letters offer rich testimony to the complexity of the honest courtesan's position. Margaret F. Rosenthal draws a compelling portrait of Veronica Franco in her cultural social, and economic world. Rosenthal reveals in Franco's writing a passionate support of defenseless women, strong convictions about inequality, and, in the eroticized language of her epistolary verses, the seductive political nature of all poetic contests. It is Veronica Franco's insight into the power conflicts between men and women--and her awareness of the threat she posed to her male contemporaries--that makes her literary works and her dealings with Venetian intellectuals so pertinent today. Combining the resources of biography, history, literary theory, and cultural criticism, this sophisticated interdisciplinary work presents an eloquent and often moving account of one woman's life as an act of self-creation and as a complex response to social forces and cultural conditions. "A book . . . pleasurably redolent of Venice in the 16th-century. Rosenthal gives a vivid sense of a world of salons and coteries, of intricate networks of family and patronage, and of literary exchanges both intellectual and erotic."--Helen Hackett, "Times Higher Education Supplement" "The HonestCourtesan" is the basis for the film "Dangerous Beauty" (1998) directed by Marshall Herskovitz. (The film was re-titled "The Honest Courtesan" for release in the UK and Europe in 1999.)

Neurophilosophy of Free Will: From Libertarian Illusions to a Concept of Natural Autonomy

Product : Neurophilosophy of Free Will: From Libertarian Illusions to a Concept of Natural Autonomy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Neuroscientists routinely investigate such classical philosophical topics as consciousness, thought, language, meaning, aesthetics, and death. According to Henrik Walter, philosophers should in turn embrace the wealth of research findings and ideas provided by neuroscience. In this book Walter applies the methodology of neurophilosophy to one of philosophy's central challenges, the notion of free will. Neurophilosophical conclusions are based on, and consistent with, scientific knowledge about the brain and its functioning. Walter's answer to whether there is free will is, "It depends." The basic questions concerning free will are (1) whether we are able to choose other than we actually do, (2) whether our choices are made intelligibly, and (3) whether we are really the originators of our choices. According to Walter, freedom of will is an illusion if we mean by it that under identical conditions we would be able to do or decide otherwise, while simultaneously acting only for reasons and being the true originators of our actions. In place of this scientifically untenable strong version of free will, Walter offers what he calls natural autonomy--self-determination unaided by supernatural powers that could exist even in an entirely determined universe. Although natural autonomy can support neither our traditional concept of guilt nor certain cherished illusions about ourselves, it does not imply the abandonment of all concepts of responsibility. For we are not mere marionettes, with no influence over our thoughts or actions.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the very beginning, the North Carolina coast has been feard by mariners because of its treacherous coastline and hidden shoals.The Cape Fear in particular has haunted the nightmares of those sailors who have had the bad luck to be on its waters when the whitecaps churn or the cannons roared. James Sprunt served as purser aboard the blockade runner Lilian when just a teenager during the American Civil War. During those years he became inimately acquainted with the daring men and fast ships that challenged the might of the Union navy and its blockade of North Carolina and Cape Fear ports. There were Captains John Newland Maffitt, John Wilkinson, and Joseph Fry. Jim Billy Craig and others piloted the sleek steamers carrying the lifeblood of the Confederacy into the port at Wilmington with steady hands. Characters like Thomas Taylor, Daisy Lamb and the rebel spy Rose O'Neal Greenhow all played their parts in the drama that took place off the Cape Fear between 1861 and 1865. There were the men and ships of the U.S. Navy: Porter and Lee, Cushing and Braine, and all of the enlisted sailors and marines who stood watch on fog-slicked decks, trying to plug a bottle with two openings. Too often they were unsuccessful, but if they could close the Cape Fear and the rest of the North Carolina coast, they just might end a long and costly war. These are their stories, told by a man who saw it all happen first-hand.

The St. Louis German Catholics

Product : The St. Louis German Catholics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1827 Godfried Duden, a travel writer from Cologne, Germany, published a narrative in which he marveled at the similarities between the Mississippi and Missouri River valleys and those of the Rhine valley. He pleaded for his countrymen to take up the plow and till the rich soils of the American West, and a number of Germany's Catholics responded by moving to St. Louis. In "The St. Louis German Catholics," William Barnaby Faherty, S.J., traces the settlement, growth, and impact of one of St. Louis's most enduring communities. He covers the history of artists and athletes, politicians and priests, businessmen and philanthropists. Most importantly, Faherty provides a history of the individuals who helped shape and maintain one of St. Louis's most enduring and influential communities, complete with a profile of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, an order that came to St. Louis from Bavaria to teach in German-language Catholic schools, eventually instructing more than eight thousand children. Readers familiar with the community will revel in the mention of friends and family in Faherty's accounts, be it someone who played for one of Bob Guelker's legendary Saint Louis University soccer teams, shopped at a Winkelmann's Pharmacy or Hanneke Hardware, enjoyed polka at Strassenfest, devoted time to St. Vincent's Orphans Home or the Catholic Knights, attended services at one of the many formerly German-speaking churches, or was taught at one of the parish schools.

When You're Asked to Do the Impossible: Principles of Business Teamwork and Leadership from the U.S. Army's Elite Rangers

Product : When You're Asked to Do the Impossible: Principles of Business Teamwork and Leadership from the U.S. Army's Elite Rangers
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "When You're Asked to Do the Impossible" is a powerful guide for high-intensity, high-stakes teams in business, healthcare, government, education, and other areas of life. The first book to translate the operating principles of the U.S. Army's elite Rangers into guidelines for teams in civilian life, this book establishes that to do the "impossible" individuals and teams must be developed to the highest professional levels, must be well led, must be exceptionally well prepared and supported -- and must be able to succeed in the face of everything gone wrong. The proven principles and lesons here stand against the bureacratic inertia, power plays, mediocracy, slovenly ethics, and defense of the status quo that hobbles modern efforts in most fields. They challenge leaders and team members at all levels to develop new ways of thinking, communicating, and interacting in order to achieve the "big wins" that are out of reach of most organizations. "When You're Asked to Do the Impossible" paints a no-nonsense picture picture of just how good teams can be, as it presents the principles and characteristics of some of the highest performing teams in the world.a

A Study in Greene: Graham Greene and the Art of the Novel

Product : A Study in Greene: Graham Greene and the Art of the Novel
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bernard Bergonzi has been reading Graham Greene for many years; he still possesses the original edition of The End of the Affair that he bought when it was published in 1951. After so much recent attention to Greene's life he believes it is time to return to his writings; in this critical study Bergonzi makes a close examination of the language and structure of Greene's novels, and traces the obsessive motifs that recur throughout his long career. Most earlier criticism was written while Greene was still alive and working, and was to some extent provisional, as the final shape of his work was not yet apparent. In this book Bergonzi is able to take a view of Greene's whole career as a novelist, which extended from 1929 to 1988. He believes that Greene's earlier work was his best, combining melodrama, realism, and poetry, with Brighton Rock, published in 1938, a moral fable that draws on crime fiction and Jacobean tragedy, as the masterpiece. The novels that Greene published after the 1950s were very professional examples of skilful story-telling but represented a decline from this high level of achievement. Bergonzi challenges assumptions about the nature of Greene's debt to cinema, and attempts to clarify the complexities and contradictions of his religious ideas. Although this book engages with questions that arise in academic discussions of Greene, it is written with general readers in mind.

Wild and Wounded: Shorter Poems 2000-2003

Product : Wild and Wounded: Shorter Poems 2000-2003
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wild and Wounded' collects Michael Hamburger's shorter poems since Intersections' (2000). It is published to mark the 80th birthday of one of Britain's leading poets of the last half-century. The dominant theme in these poems is the passing of time - whether referring to the injured swan in the collection's title poem, a tree surreptitiously dying', or the poet himself, comtemplating ... difficulties with grammar now, with tense, With mood, with person, case - and, yes, the sense. As illness, frailty, absence and obsolescence become more pressing to the poet, his poems, by contrast, achieve an enthralling robustness and vigour. Michael Hamburger was born in Berlin in 1924, and came to Britain as a child. He has taught widely in America and Britain and is the outstanding contemporary translator and critic of German literature. His awards include the German Federal Republic's Goethe Medal in 1986 for services to German literature. Anvil publishes several of his translations, including editions of Goethe, Holderlin, Rilke and Poems of Paul Celan', which received the EC's European Translation Prize in 1990. His Collected Poems 1941-1994' was published in 1995 by Anvil, who also publish his seminal critical work The Truth of Poetry'. His three subsequent volumes of poetry are Late', Intersections' and From a Diary of Non-Events'.

America's Weather Warriors, 1814-1985

Product : America's Weather Warriors, 1814-1985
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "This book fills an important gap in the literature. I endorse it enthusiastically not only to those interested in an unusual aspect of science, but also to military commanders at all levels who wish to use weather as an ally, rather than to face it as a foe."--Lt. Gen. Thomas S. Moorman, USAF (Ret.) America's military weather forecasters have played a crucial role in the success or failure of military operations, such as the Normandy invasion of World War II and the aborted Iranian hostage rescue mission of April, 1980. Here is the story of America's weather warriors and their contribution to military meteorology, as well as to strategy and tactics. Based on interviews, letters, reports, and first-hand experience, the authors describe the human interplay and personalized leadership that were so important in the birth and development of the U.S. military weather services.
