The Nature and Structure of Content

Product : The Nature and Structure of Content
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Belief in propositions has had a long and distinguished history in analytic philosophy. Three of the founding fathers of analytic philosophy, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, and G.E. Moore, believed in propositions. Many philosophers since then have shared this belief; and the belief is widely, though certainly not universally, accepted among philosophers today. Among contemporary philosophers who believe in propositions, many, and perhaps even most, take them to be structured entities with individuals, properties, and relations as constituents. For example, the proposition that Glenn loves Tracy has Glenn, the loving relation, and Tracy as constituents. What is it, then, that binds these constituents together and imposes structure on them? And if the proposition that Glenn loves Tracy is distinct from the proposition that Tracy loves Glenn yet both have the same constituents, what is about the way these constituents are structured or bound together that makes them two different propositions? In The Nature and Structure of Content, Jeffrey C. King formulates a detailed account of the metaphysical nature of propositions, and provides fresh answers to the above questions. In addition to explaining what it is that binds together the constituents of structured propositions and imposes structure on them, King deals with some of the standard objections to accounts of propositions: he shows that there is no mystery about what propositions are; that given certain minimal assumptions, it follows that they exist; and that on his approach, we can see how and why propositions manage to have truth conditions and represent the world as being a certain way. The Nature and Structure of Content also contains a detailed account of the nature of tense and modality, and provides a solution to the paradox of analysis. Scholars and students working in the philosophy of mind and language will find this book rewarding reading.

Contemporary Perspectives on Early Childhood Education

Product : Contemporary Perspectives on Early Childhood Education
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ""This innovative and challenging book offers a refreshing and vigorous response to those who seek to create childhoods that are standardized, over-regulated and framed within a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. It demonstrates how childhoods are multiple, complex and multi-faceted in a global context and outlines approaches to policy and practice that celebrate diversity and address contemporary concerns such as poverty, children's rights and quality in early childhood education. This is a book that should be read by researchers, practitioners, students and policy-makers alike: each will find important material that will change their thinking about early childhood education in the 21st century."" Professor Jackie Marsh, University of Sheffield, UK ""An important addition to the growing body of literature contesting mainstream and standardising early childhood education, offering a rich, diverse and critical menu of work about both policy and practice."" Professor Peter Moss, Institute of Education University of London, UK This book considers and interrogates a range of new and critical issues in contemporary early childhood education. It discusses both fundamental and emerging topics in the field, and presents them in the context of reflective and contemporary frameworks. Bringing together leading experts whose work is at the cutting edge of contemporary early childhood education theory and research across the world, this book considers the care and education of young children from a global perspective and deals with issues and groups of children or families that are often marginalized. The contributing authors challenge traditional views and maintain that new ways of thinking and doing are required in these new times. The chapters in this book highlight some of the most important issues as catalysts for discussion and critique. Central to the discussions is the notion that these are complex issues that warrant debate and that there are often no simple solutions to them. These theoretical perspectives are situated in practice with the use of engaging case studies. This edited collection is essential reading for anyone studying or working in early childhood education.

Facilitating Groups

Product : Facilitating Groups
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Every manager, every coach, every HR professional, every trainer, every team leader - anyone who needs to get the best out of a group needs to know how to facilitate. So what is facilitation and why is it so important? To facilitate means to make something easy, so the challenge of facilitation is to make it easier for a group to learn, to develop and succeed. Facilitation bypasses coercion, teaching or chairing. It's about how to read a group, how to challenge group members appropriately and how to name the apparently unnameable. It's about being able to design events which perfectly match what the group needs and then to run such events with aplomb. "Facilitating Groups, " in this new edition, is written by a facilitator with thirty years of experience and cuts to the heart of the practical skills that any facilitator needs.

Penrod (Gordon Grant Illustrated Edition)

Product : Penrod (Gordon Grant Illustrated Edition)
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Booth Tarkington (1869-1946) was one of the most popular writers of the early 20th Century, who first achieved acclaim with his historical romance "Monsieur Beaucaire" (1900). But his more characteristic work was found in such novels as "The Gentleman from Indiana" (1899), "The Conquest of Canaan" (1905), and the trilogy consisting of "Turmoil" (1915), "The Magnificent Ambersons" (1918) and "The Midlander" (1921). He won two Pulitzer Prizes for novels, for "The Magnificent Ambersons" and for "Alice Adams" (1921). "The Magnificent Ambersons" was memorably filmed by Orson Welles in 1942. Tarkington is also noted for several charming, idealized novels about childhood and adolescence, such as "Penrod" (1914) and "Seventeen" (1916), which occur squarely in the middle of the line of literary development that leads from Mark Twain's "Tom Sawyer" up to Ray Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine." They are classics of period Americana. This edition of Penrod also reprints Gordon Grant's charming illustrations from the 1914 edition.

Goal Setting: Confidence + Goals = Success

Product : Goal Setting: Confidence + Goals = Success
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Dr. Wicker has developed a unique approach to goal setting that is applicable for everyone. Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about changing or developing your future. This book includes real-life examples and applicable work exercises to utilize when setting goals. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. This book also uncovers 5 important reasons why people need to establish goals: 1. Goals guide and direct behavior. 2. Goals provide challenges. 3. Goals justify the performance. 4. Goals define the basis for strategy. 5. Goals serve an organizing function. Finally, the goal setting book can be summarized by utilizing the (C+G=S) philosophy. (Confidence + Goals = Success) The C + G = S philosophy tells us that goals are defined as a desired pattern or action that lead to specific successful results. C + G = S also tells us that goals need to be planned. Goals cannot begin by themselves, which is how the C + G = S philosophy started. Research has determined that confidence and planning were key factors in goal-setting techniques. The word confidence, as defined by Webster's Dictionary, is the belief in one's own ability. Success is defined as a favorable result-the gaining of wealth, fame, and accomplishments. The definitions listed in Webster's Dictionary of each key word helped develop the acronym: C + G = S

Description : As Tony Mandarich left Green Bay in February, 1993, his football career in shambles, Packer Plus staff writer, Tom Mulhern, wrote the following: "The overriding sentiment, however, is one of emptiness.

For all the sports writers, fans, coaches, friends and family, "My Dirty Little Secrets" sets the record straight. On the 20th anniversary of his draft in 1989, Tony reveals the reasons why he never achieved what the nation expected of him, and what he expected of himself.

"My Dirty Little Secrets" promises to help readers Learn about the power of addiction Discover how co-dependency and enablers affect addicts Understand why treatment for addictions is so important in recovery Realize the importance of emotional suppot systems in the lives of alcoholics Accept the role of the Higher Power's grace in recovery ""My Dirty Little Secrets" is a testament that faith in a higher power can bring us to salvation and light.

Description : After teaching for fourteen years in American universities and lecturing abroad both in Europe and the Far East, Charles Boewe took his family to live in South Asia, where he directed academic exchange programs for the U.S. government in Iran, in Pakistan, and in India during the next sixteen years. Following his retirement, he returned to his earlier interest in local history, believing that extensive foreign residence would now give added perspective to his writing about the recent past. Though he now lives in North Carolina, in this memoir the author profiles the Middle Western market town of his youth that, despite the rigors of the Great Depression, afforded a quality of life since vanished. Most small-town enterprises got spun off there to larger municipalities as an unintended consequence of post-Depression economic recovery. Since similar events occurred elsewhere, this detailed sketch of West Salem, Illinois, has relevance to many small towns in the region stretching from Wichita to Wheeling, from Minneapolis to Memphis. Ever in the interest of greater efficiency and economy of scale, the same centrifugal forces irrevocably altered village life in Middle Americaanot always for the better.

The Aristocratic Universe of Karen Blixen: Destiny and the Denial of Fate

Product : The Aristocratic Universe of Karen Blixen: Destiny and the Denial of Fate
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Karen Blixen's works are explored in the light of a passionate insistence on living out this double nature of the divine and the demonic. The "aristocratic" is examined as her depiction of a conduct of life that is faithful to destiny: The aristocratic viewpoint is in tune with eternity and places no obstructive morality between self and life. Vitality has its source in direct access to the ocean of inexhaustible opportunities with which life presents us. The "world" in her novel Out of Africa, for example, plays a key role as the consummate illustration of an aristocratic culture. The aesthetic guidelines for literary form (as well as art) as advocated by Karen Blixen are discussed, and her view of art is similarly defined and explained as "aristocratic." Her private correspondence is drawn upon to shed new light on her life and work. The Aristocratic Universe of Karen Blixen explores the confrontation between the different cultures and environments which are seen to limit and censure natural behavior while at the same time imposing upon humankind unnecessary notions of sin and guilt. Analysis of her stories (especially Babette's Feast) and of her world view show how Karen Blixen maps out hostility to destiny - this being a violation of Creation, which is viewed as both divine and demonic. Photographs and color pictures of Blixen's art work are also included.

Water

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Robin Griffiths and William Houston - the co-authors of Future Storm who in 2006 predicted the present political, economic, commodity and climatic turmoil - have turned their attention to one of the biggest challenges being faced across the globe today: Water. Up to the turn of the century the world's population had grown with water abundant in most developing countries. Then everything changed. Ocean oscillations (which affect the weather patterns) have altered, leading to droughts in areas that were expecting rain, and flooding for those previously anticipating arid conditions. The result is that around a fifth of the world's population will receive much less rain than expected What effect will this have? - A third of arable land going out of production, reducing yields and increasing prices. - A rise in seismic activity leading to more tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, which in turn cause climatic shifts. - A large increase in refugees forced to seek shelter in other countries. - Potential conflicts over water. - An immediate need to reduce the amount of water currently allowed to run to waste. - An urgent need to develop and invest in recycling, desalination and intelligent irrigation and new fuels, such as hydrogen and cold fusion. The authors address all of these issues and propose solutions to the problems we are about to face, or are already grappling with. This book sets out the power of water to enrich or destroy the lives of millions.

Species Matters: Humane Advocacy and Cultural Theory

Product : Species Matters: Humane Advocacy and Cultural Theory
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The question of the animal has preoccupied an increasing number of humanities, science, and social science scholars in recent years, and important work continues to expand the burgeoning field of animal studies. However, a key question still needs to be explored: Why has the academy struggled to link advocacy for animals to advocacy for various human groups? Within cultural studies, in which advocacy can take the form of a theoretical intervention, scholars have resisted arguments that add "species" to race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and other human-identity categories as a site for critical analysis. "Species Matters: Humane Advocacy and Cultural Theory" considers whether and why cultural studies--specifically cultural theory--should pay more attention to animal advocacy and whether or why animal studies should pay more attention to questions raised by cultural theory. The contributors to this volume focus on the "humane" treatment of animals and various human groups and the implications, both theoretical and practical, of blurring the distinction between "the human" and "the animal." This anthology addresses important questions raised by the history of representing humans as the only animal capable of acting humanely, providing a framework for reconsidering the nature of humane discourse, whether in theory, literary and cultural texts, or current advocacy movements outside of the academy.

Gurkha

Product : Gurkha
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Gurkhas remain one of the most distinctive and feared regiments of the British Army. Rumour has it that during the Falklands War, Argentinean troops lived in terror of being stalked and killed by Gurkha soldiers, reflecting the Gurkhas' well-founded fearsome reputation. Impressed by the fighting qualities of their Nepalese opponents in a short campaign in 1814, the British East India Company formed the first Regiment of Gurkhas in 1815. After the partition of India in 1947, the Gurkha Rifle Regiments were split between the Indian and British Armies, becoming an integral part of the latter.Following a brief history of the Gurkhas in the nineteenth century, the author examines their role in both World Wars and their extensive post-war active service in Malaya, Brunei and the Falklands and their more recent contributions in Bosnia, Kosovo, East Timor and Sierra Leone. The rigorous selection and training of Gurkhas in Nepal is also reported at first hand, making this book an ideal introduction to the traditions, history and future of an elite fighting force.

The twenty-first century calls us to reimagine the learning day-building partnerships that engage schools, after-school programs, businesses, and community-based organizations - and to embrace both traditional academic basics as well as small-group and project-based learning.

Description : Are they needed? To be sure. The Darwinian industry, industrious though it is, has failed to provide texts of more than a handful of Darwin's books. If you want to know what Darwin said about barnacles (still an essential reference to cirripedists, apart from any historical importance) you are forced to search shelves, or wait while someone does it for you; some have been in print for a century; various reprints have appeared and since vanished." --Eric Korn, "Times Literary Supplement" Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882) has been widely recognized since his own time as one of the most influential writers in the history of Western thought. His books were widely read by specialists and the general public, and his influence had been extended by almost continuous public debate over the past 150 years. New York University Press's new paperback edition makes it possible to review Darwin's public literary output as a whole, plus his scientific journal articles, his private notebooks, and his correspondence. This is complete edition contains all of Darwin's published books, featuring definitive texts recording original pagination with Darwin's indexes retained. The set also features a general introduction and index, and introductions to each volume.

When Rick decides to move in with Ed and begin a committed relationship, Ed believes his long-time dreams about the perfect man have come true. However, he quickly learns that the day-to-day reality of living with another man is not always the blissful fantasy he had imagined. Ed's good friend and staunch supporter, Mrs. Hilda Penfield, complicates matters further with a stunning proposal for Ed and Rick. As they make their first major decision as a couple, Ed realizes that Rick's vision of their life together isn't an exact match of his own. In addition, Ed's concerns about living openly with another man in Porterfield, Indiana-population nine thousand-continue to haunt him, and are brought into sharper focus after an unpleasant encounter with one of his clients. Ed doesn't lack for input and advice from his opinionated mother, Norma; his younger but more experienced sister, Laurie; his mouthy but lovable friend, Gordy; and the wise and wonderful Mrs. Penfield. Fortunately, Ed's practicality and his desire to make his marriage with Rick work enable him to navigate the unexpected twists and turns of his new life with the grace and humor that endeared Ed to readers of The Handyman's Dream. With another soundtrack of timeless pop classics, author Nick Poff invites you to enjoy the continuing heartwarming journey of Ed and Rick as they make the transition from romantic courtship to the realities of a life together.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the 15th century, a fabulous journey awaited those who could unlock the secrets of the Earth's geography. Beautifully written and emotionally compelling, 1492: Admiral of the Ocean-Sea tells of the famous adventures of Columbus and his men, who sailed into the almost mythical seas beyond the horizon in search of the "New World," in the hopes of attaining vast wealth and power. This brilliant book, by best-selling author Mary Johnston, traces the long route taken by explorers hoping to locate Asia. Based on their limited means and understanding of navigation, they struggle to find their position, while at the same time encountering many natural wonders and exotic peoples. Tensions build as they appear to become increasingly lost. Columbus and his crew begin to lose hope, until they finally receive the vindication of their bold vision. 1492: Admiral of the Ocean-Sea pays special attention to the conditions of the late 15th century period. It describes the competition between classes and ethnic groups in Spain, as well as the clashes that occurred when people from two very different cultures, native American and European, interact. These issues are not merely abstract, since we see them vividly through the eyes of a disenfranchised individual: a Christian sailor of Jewish background, who has been compelled to lead a secretive and solitary existence. The incidents of his life are brought to us in a handsome, elegant language, uncommon in the books of our day.

Crafting Law on the Supreme Court: The Collegial Game

Product : Crafting Law on the Supreme Court: The Collegial Game
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Crafting Law on the Supreme Court, Maltzman, Spriggs, and Wahlbeck use material gleaned from internal memos circulated among justices on the U.S. Supreme Court to systematically account for the building of majority opinions. The authors argue that at the heart of this process are justices whose decisions are constrained by the choices made by the other justices. The portrait of the Supreme Court that emerges stands in sharp contrast to the conventional portrait where justices act solely on the basis of the law or their personal policy preferences. This book provides a fascinating glimpse of how the Court crafts the law.

Description : An amazingly rich family saga fueled by an obsession-redemption. Narrated by three distinctly different Jewish women, each representing her own generation, Annie's Portion offers a candid new view of an historic story by means of wonderfully diverse characters, settings and secrets. Sarah's journey from an old-world shtetl to Manhattan's Eastside is related through the eyes of an eight-year-old. Her eventual victory over a lifethreatening illness and the indifference of an alienated family, is a testament to her courage and moral fiber, setting the standard for her progeny. Annie, Sarah's unconventional daughter, struggles with conflicting values, recounting a tale of family tradition, deprivation, promiscuity, and prosperity. Impulsively, she takes her family across a continent from New York to Hawaii where she succeeds beyond imagining. A fiftieth birthday initiates another change, more shocking and defining than any that had come before. Untouched by past tribulations of mother and grandmother, Sam, Annie's teen-age daughter, has led a carefree life in Hawaii. Her mother's abrupt pronouncement forces Sam to embark on a self-exploratory journey. She develops a passion with ill-fated consequences, and brings us to the emotional, unexpected conclusion.

Sir Long Chain Charles

Product : Sir Long Chain Charles
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The true no-holds barred story of one man's endurance on a Virginia chain gang and in the Virginia state penitentiary of the 1950's. The story follows the author from the crime of an eighteen year old - taking money that was owed to him - through his incarceration on a chain gang, his escape, return to prison, another chain gang and finally parole. Take a birds-eye view of the harsh realities of a chain gang camp where vicious, ignorant gun-wielding guards held the power of life or death over prisoners; and how the prisoners dealt with life there, sometimes cruelly, permanently disabling themselves by cutting their heel tendons to escape the severe non-stop work, and sometimes humorously. Follow along on a heart pounding escape, and then journey into a maximum-security prison where the rules are entirely different, and life was cheap. See what it took to survive and endure in order to return to the 'free' world. Long Chain Charlie was an integral part of the Virginia Department of Corrections and as such became known as Sir Long Chain Charles by my choosing - something to be respected for it's service. I knew the first time I stepped on board Long Chain that I was being taken to a rolling hell - the guard's terse introduction as he handcuffed me to the seat told me that. "You can try to escape if you want to. If you do try, I'll kill you. It's simple as that." I was an extremely youthful looking eighteen year old who could pass for fourteen, fresh from the mountainous backwoods with a brand-new ten year sentence, but I believed him, and couldn't help but think that this was just the tip of the iceberg, my introduction to the Virginia penal system: a cold, dark gray bus encased in bars and heavy wire mesh, taking me to a cold, dark gray penitentiary. It was going to be a long ten years. The Commonwealth of the state of Virginia was the only penal system to my knowledge that was fully self-sustaining. There were thirty-two chain gang camps, part of them black only, part of them white only, a huge state farm, each county had it's own farm, even most of the chain gang camps had them. The two I was in certainly did. Then there was the block plant, the lime plant, and the nearly twenty-four hundred convicts at 500 Spring Street, the penitentiary, were kept busy in the shops. There was the knitting mill for socks, underwear and t-shirts; the tailor shops for the uniforms and going-out clothes; the furniture shop, the tag shop, the machine shop. All the inmates were fed, clothed and maintained by their own hand. This same system would work in every penal institution today, or on the other hand, maybe it wouldn't work because today the jail birds would start screaming "We got rights ' and some facet of society would come along and say "Their rights were violated. Release them " thus releasing and creating more two-legged slugs onto the streets that society has to condone. I am proud to say that after everything I have endured in t

Pyrrhic Victory: French Strategy and Operations in the Great War

Product : Pyrrhic Victory: French Strategy and Operations in the Great War
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As the driving force behind the Allied effort in World War I, France willingly shouldered the heaviest burden. In this masterful book, Robert Doughty explains how and why France assumed this role and offers new insights into French strategy and operational methods. French leaders, favoring a multi-front strategy, believed the Allies could maintain pressure on several fronts around the periphery of the German, Austrian, and Ottoman empires and eventually break the enemy's defenses. But France did not have sufficient resources to push the Germans back from the Western Front and attack elsewhere. The offensives they launched proved costly, and their tactical and operational methods ranged from remarkably effective to disastrously ineffective. Using extensive archival research, Doughty explains why France pursued a multi-front strategy and why it launched numerous operations as part of that strategy. He also casts new light on France's efforts to develop successful weapons and methods and the attempts to use them in operations. An unparalleled work in French or English literature on the war, "Pyrrhic Victory" is destined to become the standard account of the French army in the Great War.

The Heart of a Pilot

Product : The Heart of a Pilot
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It was during a time when his family was financially down that the author discovered his passion. In a county fair where it was even hard for him and his mother to experience a single ride, he found himself fascinated with only one amusement-the old Curtis Robin airplane. Luckily for him, a family friend gave him the chance to ride it himself. As soon as the engine roared to life and the airplane lurched forward across the rough pasture and into the sky where he could see the beautiful view from above, he knew right then that he wanted to go flying for the rest of his life. Now in his late 70's Bangart relives his wonderful journey through the skies and life to bring inspiration to others. In this autobiography, he reminisces his adventures as a pilot during the Great Depression, treating the reader with an inside look at growing to manhood during the first half of the twentieth century. His descriptions of the early days of Alaska bush flying, and the trials and hazards of the early airline flying are given in great detail. A person does not have to be a pilot or airplane enthusiast to enjoy this book. It covers such things as driving the Alaska- Canadian highway both in summer and winter weather, making a home in Alaska with a new bride, how government has brought many changes in our lives, and many insights into life itself. If you have been a passenger on an airliner during these early years, this book will give you a perception to what went on behind the closed cabin door where the pilots were secluded.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What is being done to counter threats of maritime terrorism and how effective are the safeguards? The author presents evidence that Al-Qaeda aims to disrupt the seaborne trading system, the backbone of the model global economy, and would use a crude nuclear explosive device or radiological bomb to do so if it could obtain one and position it to go off in a port-city, shipping strait or waterway that plays a key role in international trade. Improving maritime trade is especially important for the US and Canada, member states of the EU, Australia and New Zealand and for China, Japan and South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and other East Asian economies that have extensive direct seaborne trade. It is doubly vital for places like Singapore, Hong Kong and Rotterdam that are not only very large global seaports but also giant giant container transshipment hubs. This book discusses some major threats to seaborne trade and its land links in the global supply chain, their potential impact and the new security measures in place or pending for ships, ports and cargo containers, and recommendations for preventing or handling a catastrophic terrorist attack designed to disrupt world trade.

Description : When a young woman dies three years after a brutal assault, newly arrived pathologist Elliot Morgan reluctantly agrees to perform the autopsy. Though initially of uncertain significance, the discovery of an unexpected lesion ultimately ignites a quest with surprising twists and turns as an unusual virus is traced through the community. After a chance meeting, Rachel Anderson and Dr. Morgan find themselves drawn to one another. Together, as their lives become increasingly intertwined, they unknowingly threaten the perimeter of something bigger than an isolated crime of passion. Framed in the context of the day to day practice of pathology, side stories and vignettes swirl in the background. Consequences linger long after forgiveness. No one is beyond redemption. (Adult situations/mature themes)

The Mystery of Mind: A Systematic Account of the Human Mind Toward Understanding Its Own Realization

Product : The Mystery of Mind: A Systematic Account of the Human Mind Toward Understanding Its Own Realization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Mystery of Mind is a systematic and critical introduction to the philosophy of mind. That issue is what is known as the mind-body problem. How does a body support a mind with its brain? Pivotal to the book is the author's working out of an adverbial concept of mind that is user-friendly to the materialist cause. It is upon the strength of this adverbial concept that the author has come to hold that the conceptual gap between the neurobiological and the psych-cognitive could in fact be bridged. It is also the author's contention that despite shortcomings of other materialist approaches that have been taken in our time, an intelligible case for the truth of materialism could still be made in the form of a biological emergent two-aspect scenario, i.e., when the adverbial concept of mind he advocates is also brought to bear. All in all, what The Mystery of Mind offers is a systematic introduction to one of the living philosophical issues that have engaged the human intellects for more than two thousand years. This is also the central issue that has motivated research in artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and the philosophy of mind in our time.

Romanticism at the End of History

Product : Romanticism at the End of History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Romantics lived through a turn of the century that, like our own, seemed to mark an end to history as it had long been understood. They faced accelerated change, including unprecedented state power, armies capable of mass destruction, a polyglot imperial system, and a market economy driven by speculation. In Romanticism at the End of History, Jerome Christensen challenges the prevailing belief that the Romantics were reluctant to respond to social injustice. Through provocative and searching readings of the poetry of Wordsworth; the poems, criticism, and journalism of Coleridge; the Confessions of De Quincey; and Sir Walter Scott's Waverley, Christensen concludes that during complicated times of war and revolution English Romantic writers were forced to redefine their role as artists.

The Nature Fakers Nature Fakers: Wildlife, Science, and Sentiment Wildlife, Science, and Sentiment

Product : The Nature Fakers Nature Fakers: Wildlife, Science, and Sentiment Wildlife, Science, and Sentiment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1903 John Burroughs published an Atlantic Monthly article attacking popular nature writers -- among them William J. Long and Jack London -- as "sham naturalists". The spirited "nature fakers" controversy that ensued reveals much about public attitudes toward nature at the time. Burroughs's argument that the writers invented facts and reported them as the gospel truth prompted a public literary debate, fueled by the avid participation of the nation's leading magazines and newspapers, and President Theodore Roosevelt's own denunciation of the 'faker' contingent. At issue was the conflict between science and sentiment as methods of understanding the creatures of the wild. Ultimately, as Ralph Lutts demonstrates in The Nature Fakers, the dialogue resulted in a new standard of accuracy for the responsible nature writer and reflected a new way of thinking about moral responsibilities to wildlife.

Product : Can You Pass the Acid Test?: A History of the Drug and Sex Counterculture and Its Censorship in the 20th Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The aacid testa was a name for large concerts, with groups such as the Grateful Dead, where free LSD (then legal) was available for those in attendance. The title of this book comes from a flyer advertising one such event. But the outbreak of LSD and marijuana in the 1960s was not the beginning of the drug counterculture as we know it today. This book presents examples of drug use and sex-promoting cliques around music, magazines, newspapers, clothing and other forms of culture that countered the established norms and often brought about the governmentas wrath. This book is a comprehensive look at these counterculture trends from the 1990s back through the late 1800s. Here is a comprehensive reference book to songs, publications and objects of art that reflected the last centuryas countercultures, as well as government and mainstream press attempts to censor them.

Modern Opening Chess Strategy

Product : Modern Opening Chess Strategy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : All too often chess openings books consist of reams of variations and sub-variations and bracketed sub-sub-variations, with no apparent explanation for why a move is chosen or why one path deserves precedence over another. Golombek fought tenaciously against this denigration of his art, for he considered chess an art form. The Grandmaster Emeritus always sought to explain the ideas behind the moves and give the strategic justification for any course of action. For this reason alone Golombek's chief openings manual, reprinted here, will outlive the ephemera which largely characterise rival efforts to explain the entire gamut of openings available to the ambitious player. Armed with Golombek you will understand what you are doing -not just become a performing monkey which apes the movements of the masters

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this careful analysis, Skinner explores the trial narratives of Jesus, Paul, Stephen, and others in the Gospels and Acts who found themselves brought before powerful individuals and groups, often with deadly consequences. His close study of these texts is essential for those interested in the early church's relationship to the sociopolitical structures in which Christian belief emerged. He shows how the narratives helped shape early Christian identity as these communities sought to understand both the political implications of the emerging Christian gospel as well as the dangers and opportunities their sociopolitical context presented. He also reflects on the theological resources and paradigms these texts offer to Christians today.

Description : "European Gothic: A Spirited Exchange 1760-1960" sets out to challenge the tyranny of the Anglo-American narratives that have dominated critical histories of the Gothic so far. It argues that the Gothic novel did not simply derive from "The Castle of Otranto," but that it has been forged in the crucible of translation. Focussing on Gothic writing in English, French, German, Russian and Spanish, the collection charts a rich process of cross-fertilization and, in particular, examines the importance of Anglo-French exchanges in the development of the Gothic novel within Europe and, subsequently, the US.
