Randomized Response and Indirect Questioning Techniques in Surveys

Product : Randomized Response and Indirect Questioning Techniques in Surveys
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A long-standing problem in survey research is that respondents are often reluctant to give truthful answers to sensitive questions. The randomized response technique (RRT) addresses this problem by guaranteeing respondentsa (TM) anonymity and minimizing their discomfort. The key to this is that respondents determines which question they answer using some probability device, such as a coin flip or a roll of the dice. In this book, one of the worlda (TM)s leading experts on the subject summarizes the current state of the theory and practice of RRT. He examines how to extend the theory to situations employing unequal probability sampling.

The Internal Triangle: New Theories of Female Development

Product : The Internal Triangle: New Theories of Female Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book presents the first new theory of female development based on drive theory since Helene Deutsch's iPsychology of Womeni in 1945. Holmes posits an internal triangle--an intrapsychic structure unique to female development. Consisting of mother and father introjects in relation to the self, it is set up on a fantasy level to help girls separate from and gain control over early objects. In this way, it functions for the girl like the penis does for the boy. Integration and realignment of the triangle, Holmes argues, occur at adolescence, during pregnancy and childbirth, at menopause and even in old age.

Writing Art History: Disciplinary Departures

Product : Writing Art History: Disciplinary Departures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Faced with an increasingly media-saturated, globalized culture, art historians have begun to ask themselves challenging and provocative questions about the nature of their discipline. Why did the history of art come into being? Is it now in danger of slipping into obsolescence? And, if so, should we care? In "Writing Art History," Margaret Iversen and Stephen Melville address these questions by exploring some assumptions at the discipline's foundation. Their project is to excavate the lost continuities between philosophical aesthetics, contemporary theory, and art history through close readings of figures as various as Michael Baxandall, Martin Heidegger, Jacques Lacan, and Alois Riegl. Ultimately, the authors propose that we might reframe the questions concerning art history by asking what kind of writing might help the discipline to better imagine its actual practices--and its potential futures.

On Privacy

Product : On Privacy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From celebrity-snapping paparazzi to workplace surveillance, privacy is a very public issue. In this volume, Annabelle Lever examines privacy from all perspectives, and shows how the very concept of privacy is far more complex than at first it seems. Arguing that the central question is whether privacy is sufficiently important to be considered a legal right, Lever examines the problems of defining privacy before considering the threats privacy can pose to freedom, equality and social solidarity. She looks at the way protection of privacy - through anonymity and confidentiality - can promote freedom of expression, and identifies three areas where protection of privacy is particularly controversial: the family (particularly issues of sex and sexuality), the workplace and government. Drawing on government reports and legal decisions from the US and around the world, as well as anthropological, philosophical and political literature from a variety of perspectives, On Privacy asks if privacy is an entitlement that protects us from oppression and exploitation, or whether we are too quick to overlook its costs in the concealment of irresponsible and dangerous behavior.

LOGO Recognition: Theory and Practice

Product : LOGO Recognition: Theory and Practice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book presents a logo recognition system based on line pattern features. To achieve the desired accuracy and efficiency, the system employs a conceptually simple three-stage hierarchy: polygonal approximation, indexing, and matching. In the first stage, raw logos are transformed into normalized line segment maps. In the second stage, effective line pattern features are used to index the database in order to generate a moderate number of likely models. The third stage, an improved line segment Hausdorff distance (LHD) measure, screens and generates the best matches.

Nuclear Risk in Central Asia

Product : Nuclear Risk in Central Asia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There are a significant number of nuclear and radiological sources in Central Asia, which have contributed, are still contributing, or have the potential to contribute to radioactive contamination in the future. Key sources and contaminated sites of concern are: (1) The nuclear weapons tests performed at the Semipalatinsk Test Site (STS) in Kazakhstan during 1949-1989; (2) Safety trials at STS, where radioactive sources were spread by conventional explosives; (3) Peaceful nuclear explosions (PNEs) within STS and outside STS in Kazakhstan, producing crater lakes and waste storage facilities etc.; (4) Technologically enhanced levels of naturally occurring radionuclides (TENORM) due to U mining and tailing. As a legacy of the cold war and the nuclear weapon programme in the former USSR, thousands of km2 in the Central Asia countries are contaminated; (5) Large amounts of scale from the oil and gas industries contain sufficient amounts of TENORM; (6) Nuclear reactors, to be decommissioned or still in operation; (7) Storage of spent nuclear fuel and other radioactive wastes. The NATO Environmental Security Panel has recognized key hazards of concern: Natural Hazards, Human Induced Environmental Hazards, and the Degradation of the World's Natural Resource Base. Thus, nuclear and radiological risks are well within the scope of NATO ESP. Nuclear and radiological risks and potential transboundary contamination represent an international challenge, and are highly relevant for Central Asia. Therefore, the NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW): a oeNuclear Risks in Central Asiaa was organized as a top-down initiative, and the papers from this ARW are compiled in this book.

Product : Prison Writings Volume II: The Pkk and the Kurdish Question in the 21st Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his second book, Abdullah Ocalan applies the political and historical philosophy that was developed in the first volume of his Prison Writings to the Kurdish question. The book addresses the concrete political issues at the center of the Kurdish question. Ocalan calls for a "Renaissance of the Middle East" where the integration of democratic Western values and universal human rights with the deeply rooted cultural values of the Middle Eastern societies, especially the Kurdish, will form a new synthesis of civilizations. Abdullah Ocalan was the leader of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK). He was eventually kidnapped while in Kenya in 1999, and has been in prison in Turkey ever since. Ocalan was the most wanted man in Turkey for almost two decades until his kidnapping. From 1984, under his leadership, the PKK fought for an independent Kurdish state in the southeast of Turkey. In a sustained popular uprising, tens of thousands of PKK guerrillas took on the second largest army in NATO. The book begins with Preliminary Notes by Cemil Bayik, military commander of the PKK.

The Unity of the European Constitution

Product : The Unity of the European Constitution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The book contains the contributions to a conference of young Polish and German public law scholars on the Constitutional Law of the European Union. The articles explore from different angles and in different fields the concept of the unity and its (limited) realization in the primary/constitutional law of the European Union. They analyze the coherence of the EU's constitutional structure in the face of diversity, and the EU law's independence from ordinary public international law. They also deal with "unity versus differentiation," i.e. the horizontal, cross-sectoral homogeneity of European constitutional law and, finally, examine the territorial and temporal aspects of unity. The topic is expedient for several reasons, and its contributors are promising, as they are nationals from two Member States, Poland and Germany, "new" and "old," who teach and research in four different European countries. The diversity of that group itself offers enriching perspectives on the given topic.

Description : iBeyond Yahweh and Jesusi constitutes the first in-depth psychoanalytic study of the Old and New Testaments in terms of God's role in enabling humans to cope with death and the anxiety it evokes. The journey on which this study embarks leads through an examination of the related topics of knowledge acquisition; divine wisdom; conscious and unconscious morality; what the author argues is the failure of psychoanalysis to ally itself with religion and the failure of religion to bring peace to the world; and a proposition for how to enhance both religious and secular forms of morality and adaptation to death anxiety.

Product : Ordines Coronationis Franciae, Volume 1: Texts and Ordines for the Coronation of Frankish and French Kings and Queens in the Middl
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The "ordines coronationis" are essentially the scripts for the coronation of Frankish and French sovereigns. Combining detailed religious, ceremonial, and political material, they are an extraordinarily important source for the study of individual rulers or dynasties, as well as for the study of kingship, queenship, and the evolution of political institutions. Complete in two volumes, Richard A. Jackson's is the first full edition of these texts, including all the "ordines" from the early thirteenth century through the end of the fifteenth century, a period during which the texts shift from Latin to the vernacular, and the institutions of kingship become distinctively French.

Domestic Violence and International Law

Product : Domestic Violence and International Law
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book argues that certain forms of domestic violence between cohabitants are a violation of international human rights law. The argument is based on the international law principle that, where a state fails to protect a vulnerable group of people from harm, whether perpetrated by the state or private actors, it has breached its obligations to protect against human rights violation. The book provides a comprehensive legal analysis for why a state should be held accountable in international law for allowing women to suffer extreme forms of domestic violence and how this can help individual victims. The author pushes the boundaries of the doctrine of states' 'Responsibility to Protect, ' a developing area of international law which holds states responsible for the failure to protect vulnerable groups from political violence, such as ethnic cleansing, mass rape, sexual slavery, or torture. Where the violence is equivalent, this obligation ought to extend to victims of private violence. It is irrelevant that the violence is perpetrated by individuals and not state actors, such as soldiers or the police. The state's breach of its responsibility is in its failure to act effectively in domestic violence cases. With its silent endorsement of the violence, it becomes complicit. The book reformulates the academic and political debate on domestic violence and the responsibility of states under international law. It is based on empirical data combined with an honest assessment of whether or not domestic violence is recognized by the international community as a human rights violation

Creating the Cult of St. Joseph: Art and Gender in the Spanish Empire

Product : Creating the Cult of St. Joseph: Art and Gender in the Spanish Empire
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : St. Joseph is mentioned only eight times in the New Testament Gospels. Prior to the late medieval period, Church doctrine rarely noticed him except in passing. But in 1555 this humble carpenter, earthly spouse of the Virgin Mary and foster father of Jesus, was made patron of the Conquest and conversion in Mexico. In 1672, King Charles II of Spain named St. Joseph patron of his kingdom, toppling St. James--traditional protector of the Iberian peninsula for over 800 years--from his honored position. Focusing on the changing manifestations of Holy Family and St. Joseph imagery in Spain and colonial Mexico from the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, this book examines the genesis of a new saint's cult after centuries of obscurity. In so doing, it elucidates the role of the visual arts in creating gender discourses and deploying them in conquest, conversion, and colonization. Charlene Villasenor Black examines numerous images and hundreds of primary sources in Spanish, Latin, Nahuatl, and Otomi. She finds that St. Joseph was not only the most frequently represented saint in Spanish Golden Age and Mexican colonial art, but also the most important. In Spain, St. Joseph was celebrated as a national icon and emblem of masculine authority in a society plagued by crisis and social disorder. In the Americas, the parental figure of the saint--model father, caring spouse, hardworking provider--became the perfect paradigm of Spanish colonial power. "Creating the Cult of St. Joseph" exposes the complex interactions among artists, the Catholic Church and Inquisition, the Spanish monarchy, and colonial authorities. One of the only sustained studies of masculinity in early modern Spain, it also constitutes a rare comparative study of Spain and the Americas.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Set at the time of the Third Crusade (1189 - 92), "The Betrothed" is the first of Scott's "Tales of the Crusaders." The betrothed is Eveline, daughter of a Norman noble, who is a victim of the Crusade in that her intended husband is required by the Church to fulfil his vow to join the war and departs for three years. The full horror of an arranged marriage, and of being a possible prize as men seek to gain possession of her is vividly realised -- the heroine is never free; her fate is always determined by the agency of men. And being set on the Marches of Wales, it is not just men but differing cultures that strive for mastery over her.

Marshall of Singapore: A Biography

Product : Marshall of Singapore: A Biography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : David Marshall (1908-1995) was one of Singapore's most remarkable sons. The eldest son of migrant Sephardic Jews, Marshall's brilliant academic career at Raffles Institution was brought to an abrupt end when he collapsed from tuberculosis. Sent away to recuperate in Switzerland, Marshall not only learnt the French language but also imbibed the French ideals of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity and returned a strong opponent of colonialism. Qualifying as a barrister in half the normal time, he rose to become Singapore's greatest criminal and constitutional lawyer. In 1955, he unexpectedly found himself the leader of the Labour Front and Singapore's first Chief Minister. His fourteen tumultuous months in office led to the eventual withdrawal of the British from Singapore but his emotional personality and impatience made him an unlikely politician. In the twilight of his career, Marshall was appointed Singapore's first ambassador to France. This is the story of this extraordinary man who was, for many, Singapore's "missionary of democracy." Using previously unavailable sources, author Kevin Tan chronicles the remarkable life, times and achievements of the man many regarded as "Singapore's Conscience."

Influenza and Public Health: Learning from Past Pandemics

Product : Influenza and Public Health: Learning from Past Pandemics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Major influenza pandemics pose a constant threat. As evidenced by recent H5N1 avian flu and novel H1N1, influenza outbreaks can come in close succession, yet differ in their transmission and impact. With accelerated levels of commercial and population mobility, new forms of flu virus can also spread across the globe with unprecedented speed. Responding quickly and adequately to each outbreak becomes imperative on the part of governments and global public health organizations, but the difficulties of doing so are legion. One tool for pandemic planning is analysis of responses to past pandemics that provide insight into productive ways forward.This book investigates past influenza pandemics in light of today's, so as to afford critical insights into possible transmission patterns, experiences, mistakes, and interventions. It explores several pandemics over the past century, from the infamous 1918 Spanish Influenza, the avian flu epidemic of 2003, and the novel H1N1 pandemic of 2009, to lesser-known outbreaks such as the 1889-90 influenza pandemic and the Hong Kong Flu of 1968. Contributors to the volume examine cases from a wide range of disciplines, including history, sociology, epidemiology, virology, geography, and public health, identifying patterns that cut across pandemics in order to guide contemporary responses to infectious outbreaks.

Handbook of Public Sociology

Product : Handbook of Public Sociology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Public sociology--an approach to sociology that aims to communicate with and actively engage wider audiences--has been one of the most widely discussed topics in the discipline in recent years. The Handbook of Public Sociology presents a comprehensive look at every facet of public sociology in theory and practice. It pays particular attention to how public sociology can complement more traditional types of sociological practice to advance both the analytical power of the discipline and its ability to benefit society. The volume features contributions from a stellar list of authors, including several past presidents of the American Sociological Association such as Michael Burawoy, a leading proponent of public sociology. The first two sections of the Handbook of Public Sociology look at public sociology in relation to the other three types of practice--professional, policy, and critical--with an emphasis on integrating the four types into a holistic model of theory and practice. Subsequent sections focus on issues like teaching public sociology at various levels, case studies in the application of public sociology, and the role of public sociology in special fields in the discipline. The concluding chapter by Michael Burawoy, a past president of the American Sociological Association and a leading proponent of public sociology, addresses current debates surrounding public sociology and presents a constructive vision for the future that embraces and improves upon all four types of sociology. The Handbook of Public Sociology with its examination not only of public sociology but also of how it can enhance and complement other types of practice, transcends differences in the field and will appeal to a wide range of academics, students, and practitioners.

Product : Ismail Kadare: The Writer and the Dictatorship 1957-1990
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ismail Kadare has experienced a life of controversy. In his own country and internationally, he has been both acclaimed as a writer and condemned as a lackey of the Albanian socialist dictatorship. Coming of age after occupation and war, Kadare (b. 1936) belonged to the first generation of new Albanians. In a land where writers were routinely imprisoned, Kadare produced the most brilliant and subversive works to emerge from socialist Eastern Europe. His work brings to an end the century whose literary beginnings were marked by the terror to which Kafka gave his name. The inaugural award of the International Man-Booker Prize for Literature in 2005 marked an important milestone in the global recognition of Kadare. Ironic, multi-layered and imaginative, Kadare's writing is profoundly opposed to ideology. Through critical analysis of a representative selection of Kadare's works, Peter Morgan explains for a wide audience how Kadare survived and wrote in the repressive Albanian Stalinist environment.

Evolving Methods for Macromolecular Crystallography: The Structural Path to the Understanding of the Mechanism of Action of CBRN A

Product : Evolving Methods for Macromolecular Crystallography: The Structural Path to the Understanding of the Mechanism of Action of CBRN A
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : X-ray crystallography is the pre-eminent technique for visualizing the structures of macromolecules at atomic resolution. These structures are central to understanding the detailed mechanisms of biological processes, and to discovering novel therapeutics using a structure-based approach. As yet, structures are known for only a small fraction of the proteins encoded by human and pathogenic genomes. To counter the myriad modern threats of disease, there is an urgent need to determine the structures of the thousands of proteins whose structure and function remain unknown. This volume draws on the expertise of leaders in the field of macromolecular crystallography to illuminate the dramatic developments that are accelerating progress in structural biology. Their contributions span the range of techniques from crystallization through data collection, structure solution and analysis, and show how modern high-throughput methods are contributing to a deeper understanding of medical problems.

Ordering the World in the Eighteenth Century

Product : Ordering the World in the Eighteenth Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Eighteenth century is often represented, applying Tom Paine's phrase, as "The Age of Reason": an age when progressive ideals triumphed over autocracy and obscurantism, and when notions of order and balance shaped consciousness in every sphere of human knowledge. Yet the debates which surrounded the development of eighteenth-century thought were always open to troubling doubts. Was nature itself truly an ordered entity, as Newton had argued, or was it a mass of chaotic, randomly moving atoms, as some materialist thinkers believed? This book explores the tensions and conflicts in these debates through a series of interdisciplinary essays from leading international scholars, each challenging the idea that the eighteenth century was an age of order.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The book examines the rise of the amalgam of economic and political ideas we know as neo-liberalism and how these became the defining orthodoxy of our times. It investigates the inexorable global spread of market economies and how neo-liberal agendas are accommodated or hijacked in collisions with authoritarian states and populist oligarchies. The contributors address conflicts within the neo-liberal camp itself, and ask whether neo-liberalism, with its inherent distrust of politics and fear of society, requires an illiberal state defined by techno-managerial rule, or whether it invites descent into populist social contracts.

Gothic and the Comic Turn

Product : Gothic and the Comic Turn
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although Gothic writing is now seen as significant for an understanding of modernity, it is still largely characterized as a literature of fear and anxiety. Gothic and the Comic Turn argues that, partly through its desire to be taken seriously, Gothic criticism has neglected the comic doppelganger that has always inhabited the Gothic mode and which in certain texts emerges as dominant. Tracing an historical trajectory from the late Romantic period through to the present day, this book examines how varieties of comic parody and appropriation have interrogated the complexities of modern subjectivity.

Description : The interaction between mathematics and mechanics is a never ending source of new developments. This present textbook includes a wide a "ranging spectrum of topics from the three body problem and gyroscope theory to bifurcation theory, optimization, control and continuum mechanics of elastic bodies and fluids. For each of the covered topics the reader can practice mathematical experiments by using a large assortment of Matlab-programs which are available on the authora (TM)s homepage. The self-contained and clear presentation including Matlab is often useful to teach technical details by the program itself (learning by doing), which was not possible by just presenting the formula in the past. The reader will be able to produce each picture or diagram from the book by themselves and to arbitrarily alter the data or algorithms. Recent Review of the German edition "This book introduces the engineering-oriented reader to all the mathematical tools necessary for solving complex problems in the field of mechanics. The mathematics- oriented reader will find various applications of mathematical and numerical methods for modelling comprehensive mechanical-technical practical problems. Therefore this book will be interesting not only for students of various fields but also for practitioners, development engineers or mathematicians" (Hans Bufler, in: Zentralblatt MATH, 2007, Vol. 1100, Issue 2)

High-Value Natural Resources and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

Product : High-Value Natural Resources and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For most post-conflict countries, the transition to peace is daunting. In countries with high-value natural resources, the stakes are unusually high and peacebuilding is especially challenging. Paradoxically, resource-rich post-conflict countries face both unique problems and opportunities. They enter peacebuilding with an asset that distinguishes them from other war-torn societies-access to natural resources that can yield substantial revenues for alleviating poverty, compensating victims, creating jobs, and rebuilding the country and economy. Evidence shows, however, that this opportunity is often wasted. Resource-rich countries do not have a better record in sustaining peace. In fact, they are more likely to relapse into conflict than their less resource-rich counterparts. This book examines experiences from over a dozen countries in post-conflict management of high-value resources and its effect on peacebuilding. It provides a concise theoretical and practical framework for policymakers, researchers, practitioners, and students. Covering resource extraction, revenue sharing and allocation, institution building, and other key issues, it identifies lessons and opportunities for converting resource revenues to a peaceful future.High-Value Natural Resources and Post-conflict Peacebuilding is part of a global initiative to identify and analyze lessons in post-conflict peacebuilding and natural resource management. The project has generated six volumes of case studies and analyses, with contributions by practitioners, policymakers, and researchers. Other volumes address land; water; livelihoods; restoration, remediation, and reconstruction; and governance.

This fine translation is very welcome and I strongly recommend it as an introduction to an important subject. In Chapter I, which is self-contained, the pace is fairly gentle. The author proves the fundamental theorem for the special cases of free groups and tree products before dealing with the (rather difficult) proof of the general case." (A.W.

Description : While much media attention has been devoted to the Tea Party and its followers, little political analysis has been undertaken to assess their effects in different contexts throughout the country. "Tea Party Effects on 2010 U.S. Senate Elections" offers readers an insightful, comprehensive analysis of Tea Party's impact on the 2010 campaigns for United States Senate through chapters written by experts in their respective states. By describing the context and happenings of each race while analyzing all the campaigns decisions, the editors offer a timely and critical assessment of the impact the Tea Party played in shaping the 112th Congress' Senate.The 2010 season presented Americans in affected states with an election cycle that is relatively unrivaled in history. At least fourteen states have seen primary and general elections impacted to some extent by the presence of a movement that has the potential to be both broad and deep across the country. It is imperative to assess the strategies utilized by Tea Party candidates in primary and general elections along with the strategies employed by their opponents in both.

Index and Stability in Bimatrix Games: A Geometric-Combinatorial Approach

Product : Index and Stability in Bimatrix Games: A Geometric-Combinatorial Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The index of an equilibrium in a game gives information about the "stability" of the equilibrium, for example with respect to game dynamics. Unfortunately, index theory is often very technical. This book presents a new geometric construction that visualises the index in an intuitive way. For example, a 3A-n game, for any n, can be represented by a figure in the plane, from which one can read off any equilibrium, and its index as a geometric orientation. With this insight, the index can be characterised in strategic terms alone. Moreover, certain "hyperstable" equilibrium components are seen to have nonzero index. The construction gives an elementary proof that two-player games have a Nash equilibrium, and, in an unusual direction, the powerful fixed point theorem of Brouwer.

Description : "Atlanta and Environs" is, in every way, an exhaustive history of the Atlanta Area from the time of its settlement in the 1820s through the 1970s. Volumes I and II, together more than two thousand pages in length, represent a quarter century of research by their author, Franklin M. Garrett--a man called "a walking encyclopedia on Atlanta history" by the "Atlanta Journal-Constitution." With the publication of Volume III, by Harold H. Martin, this chronicle of the South's most vibrant city incorporates the spectacular growth and enterprise that have characterized Atlanta in recent decades. The work is arranged chronologically, with a section devoted to each decade, a chapter to each year. Volume I covers the history of Atlanta and its people up to 1880--ranging from the city's founding as "Terminus" through its Civil War destruction and subsequent phoenixlike rebirth. Volume II details Atlanta's development from 1880 through the 1930s--including occurrences of such diversity as the development of the Coca-Cola Company and the Atlanta premiere of "Gone with the Wind." Taking up the city's fortunes in the 1940s, Volume III spans the years of Atlanta's greatest growth. Tracing the rise of new building on the downtown skyline and the construction of Hartsfield International Airport on the city's perimeter, covering the politics at City Hall and the box scores of Atlanta's new baseball team, recounting the changing terms of race relations and the city's growing support of the arts, the last volume of "Atlanta and Environs" documents the maturation of the South's preeminent city.

Product : Sociology: A Biosocial Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In an era of human genome research, environmental challenges, new reproductive technologies, and more, students can benefit from an introductory sociology text that is a biologically informed. This innovative text integrates mainstream sociological research in all areas of sociology with a scientifically-informed model of an evolved, biological human actor. The goal for students is to help them understand that all social phenomena are a product of the interaction of the nature of individuals with the social context and group-level phenomena. This better enables students to understand their emotional, social, and institutional worlds.The text also illustrates how biological understanding naturally enhances the sociological approach and how this inclusion can be done effortlessly, with little change to sociological theories and the traditional sociological foci on the importance of group dynamics, roles, norms, and culture. Tables, Figures, Photos, and the author s concise and remarkably lively writing style make this a truly enjoyable book to reach and teach.

Nuclear Medicine Radiation Dosimetry: Advanced Theoretical Principles

Product : Nuclear Medicine Radiation Dosimetry: Advanced Theoretical Principles
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Complexities of the requirements for accurate radiation dosimetry evaluation in both diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine (including PET) have grown over the past decade. This is due primarily to four factors: Growing consideration of accurate patient-specific treatment planning for radionuclide therapy as a means of improving the therapeutic benefit, development of more realistic anthropomorphic phantoms and their use in estimating radiation transport and dosimetry in patients, Design and use of advanced Monte Carlo algorithms in calculating the above-mentioned radiation transport and dosimetry which require the user to have a thorough understanding of the theoretical principles used in such algorithms, their appropriateness and their limitations, increasing regulatory scrutiny of the radiation dose burden borne by nuclear medicine patients in the clinic and in the development of new radiopharmaceuticals, thus requiring more accurate and robust dosimetry evaluations. An element common to all four factors is the need for precise radiation dosimetry in nuclear medicine, which is fundamental to the therapeutic success of a patient undergoing radionuclide therapy and to the safety of the patients undergoing diagnostic nuclear medicine and PET procedures. As the complexity of internal radiation dosimetry applied to diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine increases, this book will provide the theoretical foundations for: enabling the practising nuclear medicine physicist to understand the dosimetry calculations being used and their limitations, allowing the research nuclear medicine physicist to critically examine the internal radiation dosimetry algorithms available and under development; and providing the developers of Monte Carlo codes for the transport of radiation resulting from internal radioactive sources with the only comprehensive and definitive.

Discretionary Justice

Product : Discretionary Justice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Juvenile drug courts are on the rise in the United States, as a result of a favorable political climate and justice officials' endorsement of the therapeutic jurisprudence movement--the concept of combining therapeutic care with correctional discipline. The goal is to divert nonviolent youth drug offenders into addiction treatment instead of long-term incarceration. Discretionary Justice overviews the system, taking readers behind the scenes of the juvenile drug court. Based on fifteen months of ethnographic fieldwork and interviews at a California court, Leslie Paik explores the staff's decision-making practices in assessing the youths' cases, concentrating on the way accountability and noncompliance are assessed. Using the concept of "workability," Paik demonstrates how compliance, and what is seen by staff as "noncompliance," are the constructed results of staff decisions, fluctuating budgets, and sometimes questionable drug test results. While these courts largely focus on holding youths responsible for their actions, this book underscores the social factors that shape how staff members view progress in the court. Paik also emphasizes the perspectives of children and parents. Given the growing emphasis on individual responsibility in other settings, such as schools and public welfare agencies, Paik's findings are relevant outside the juvenile justice system.

Wave Propagation and Time Reversal in Randomly Layered Media

Product : Wave Propagation and Time Reversal in Randomly Layered Media
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wave propagation in random media is an interdisciplinary field that has emerged from the need in physics and engineering to model and analyze wave energy transport in complex environments. This book gives a systematic and self-contained presentation of wave propagation in randomly layered media using the asymptotic theory of ordinary differential equations with random coefficients. The first half of the book gives a detailed treatment of wave reflection and transmission in one-dimensional random media, after introducing gradually the tools from partial differential equations and probability theory that are needed for the analysis. The second half of the book presents wave propagation in three-dimensional randomly layered media along with several applications, primarily involving time reversal. Many new results are presented here for the first time.

Eta Products and Theta Series Identities

Product : Eta Products and Theta Series Identities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This monograph deals with products of Dedekind's eta function, with Hecke theta series on quadratic number fields, and with Eisenstein series. The author brings to the public the large number of identities that have been discovered over the past 20 years, the majority of which have not been published elsewhere. The book will be of interest to graduate students and scholars in the field of number theory and, in particular, modular forms. It is not an introductory text in this field. Nevertheless, some theoretical background material is presented that is important for understanding the examples in Part II of the book. In Part I relevant definitions and essential theorems -- such as a complete proof of the structure theorems for coprime residue class groups in quadratic number fields that are not easily accessible in the literature -- are provided. Another example is a thorough description of an algorithm for listing all eta products of given weight and level, together with proofs of some results on the bijection between these eta products and lattice simplices.
