The Urban South: A Bibliography

Product : The Urban South: A Bibliography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This new bibliography provides scholars and students with a comprehensive reference guide to the literature on southern cities. Brown accepts the U.S. Census Bureau's definition of southern as including the District of Columbia, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Her definition of urban is much broader and more comprehensive so as to include American Indian settlements, ethnic communities, ghost towns, and other combinations of people and buildings. The book brings together material from many disciplines in the sciences, social sciences, the arts, and humanities. Items cited include professional journals, books, theses, and dissertations. The bibliography is divided into three sections by type of literature covered. Each section is in turn divided into broad subject categories. The individual entries are numbered and cross-referenced by subject, and are also included in a geographical index. Research libraries, southern college libraries, public libraries in larger southern cities, and southern city and state historical societies will want to acquire this unique bibliography for their reference collections.

Violent Politics: Strategies of Internal Conflict

Product : Violent Politics: Strategies of Internal Conflict
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Violent politcs in Northern Ireland has lasted thirty years and cost four thousand lives and billions of pounds. Many such conflicts afflict the world. This book describes the search for causes and solutions. It identifies the key factors driving violent politics and the range of counter-strategies. It analyzes the course of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and the results of the counter-measures used. The conclusions are disturbing. The recommendations are controversial, but difficult to escape. Politics is one method of solving conflicts. War is another. Violent politcs - lying in the zone between peace and war - is a third, used increasingly to trump conventional politics. Michael Addison, soldier and scholar, explores the history and myths of terrorism; he describes the search for causes and solutions; he identifies the key factors driving violent politics and the range of counter strategies. In particular, he challenges conventional thinking on thirty-three years of conflict in Northern Ireland, through battle, tribal warfare, stalemate then peace process. With thousands dead, tens of thousands injured or maimed and bilions spent, "Violent Politics"asks: Could the people of Northern Ireland have been better served? Should the Peace Process fail, what next?

A Descriptive Approach to Language-Theoretic Complexity

Product : A Descriptive Approach to Language-Theoretic Complexity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Early formal specifications of natural language syntax were quite closely connected to the notion of abstract machines for computing them. More recently, this approach has been superseded by one in which languages are specified in terms of systems of constraints on the structure of their sentences. This has made complexity results difficult to obtain. This book introduces a way of obtaining such results. It presents a natural and quite general means of expressing constraints on the structure of trees and shows that the languages that can be specified by systems of such constraints are exactly those computable by a particular standard class of abstract machines. Thus the difficulty of processing a construction can be reduced to the difficulty of expressing the constraints that specify it.

Ladonian Magnitudes

Product : Ladonian Magnitudes
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is an experimentalist, gourmet poetic 'cook book, ' full of bratwurst, currywurst, "perfect ripe tomatoes, soft white mozzarella in tiny bags like water balloons... lightly-frosted beer"- a mind feast, an epicurean smorgasbord, where, as Peter Dale Scott puts it, "vignettes of a drunken world from Europe to Saskatoon vie with a fine rendition from the Lyra Graeca." In 1996, Swedish sculptor Lars Vilks founded the one square kilometre micro-nation Ladonia to protect his piece 'Nimis' from demolition by local authorities. Inspired by the same 'anarchaesthetic' spirit, Ladonian Magnitudes morphs the topography where poetic imagination meets realpolitik to inaugurate "a change of dimension / not just locale." Critical Comment "Bryan Sentes is a heroic Pound-Joyce of the Google era. Polyglot, polymath, his imagination leaps in macaronic shifts from language to L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E. Vignettes of a drunken world from Europe to Saskatoon vie with a fine rendition from the Lyra Graeca, and far-out explorations of internet virtual space. At his best Sentes is brilliant, and the tone and the range of the whole book, from demotic to encyclopaedic, are a most welcome addition to Canadian letters." -Peter Dale Scott "Fun, erudite, euphonious, and very engaging. A pleasure to read " -Robert Priest

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the reviews: ""Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts" has appeared in semi-annual volumes since 1969 and it has already become one of the fundamental publications in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics and neighbouring sciences. It is the most important English-language abstracting journal in the mentioned branches. ...The abstracts are classified under more than a hundred subject categories, thus permitting a quick survey of the whole extended material. The "AAA" is a valuable and important publication for all students and scientists working in the fields of astronomy and related sciences. As such it represents a necessary ingredient of any astronomical library all over the world." "Space Science Reviews"#1 "Dividing the whole field plus related subjects into 108 categories, each work is numbered and most are accompanied by brief abstracts. Fairly comprehensive cross-referencing links relevant papers to more than one category, and exhaustive author and subject indices are to be found at the back, making the catalogues easy to use. The series appears to be so complete in its coverage and always less than a year out of date that I shall certainly have to make a little more space on those shelves for future volumes."

Integration of Spatial Information for Geo-Information Systems

Product : Integration of Spatial Information for Geo-Information Systems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book presents a model for the integration of spatial information for 3D Geo-Information Systems (3D-GISs). Former Geo-Information Systems are restricted to 2D space. They execute the integration of spatial information by conversion of vector and raster representations. This, however, leads to conceptual difficulties because of the totally different paradigms. After an introduction to the history and architecture of Geo-Information Systems this book examines spatial representations in 2D and 3D space regarding their suitability in 3D-GISs. A three-level notion of space serves as a basis of a model for the integration of spatial information. It likewise takes into account the geometry, metrics and the topology of geo-objects.

Safety Evaluation of Certain Food Additives and Contaminants

Product : Safety Evaluation of Certain Food Additives and Contaminants
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book evaluates the design and findings of studies relevant to the safety assessment of selected food additives and contaminants. The book, which is part of a long-running series prepared by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), gives toxicologists, the food industry, and regulatory agencies a record of the scientific evidence considered when the Committee allocates or revises acceptable daily intakes and other endpoints. Emphasis is placed on studies that relate specific exposure levels to specific toxic effects or guide the meaningful extrapolation of animal data to the human condition. Through its careful attention to questions of study design, methodology, and the validity of reported data, the book also demonstrates the strict safety standards used by JECFA in its efforts to protect consumers from any possible toxicological or pharmacological hazard linked to the use of food additives.Separate toxicological monographs are presented for one glazing agent (hydrogenated poly-1-decene), one sweetening agent (erythritol), one thickener (curdlan), and three miscellaneous substances ( g-cyclodextrin, sodium iron ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), and sodium sulfate). The volume also includes monographs on two groups of related substances evaluated according to the Procedure for the Safety Evaluation of Flavouring Agents, and on the allergenicity potential of peanut and soya bean oils. Subsequent monographs summarize the toxicological and intake data available for three food contaminants (lead, methylmercury, and zearalenone), and the intake data available for four food additives (annatto extracts (bixin), canthaxanthin, erythrosine, and iron oxides).

Ransom

Product : Ransom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "Ransom", Ann Hagedorn Auerbach explores two years in the high-stakes realm of international kidnapping, beginning with the stunning 1995 kidnapping of an American couple on the banks of a Himalayan river in Kashmir. Seamlessly moving between this story and others equally heart-wrenching, the book shows how the post-Cold War global economic climate has encouraged the increasingly lucrative criminal enterprise of kidnapping for ransom. Exposing a shadowy underworld inhabited by private kidnap negotiators, unsuspecting travelers, and an array of professional kidnappers including former rebels, former terrorists, and even former soldiers, Auerbach uses hundreds of never-before-reported facts culled from interviews worldwide to disclose one shocking detail after another about this global crime, including trends that potentially threaten every businessperson and tourist.

Over the Edge

Product : Over the Edge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An eight-grade class trip from a supposedly perfect and affluent little town to a state forest ends in a horrifying moment when a revered teacher plunges to her death from a towering cliff. If the students present witnessed the events leading up to the accident, they' re not telling. No one in the elite and tight-knit suburb of Knollwood, New Jersey, seems to know what really happened to the teacher. Worse yet, no one seems to care. Except Meg Foley. A young, single woman used to instructing inner-city kids, Meg gladly accepts a replacement position in this cushioned community. But in the eyes of her new students she sees a chilling hint of past terrors, and Meg is determined to find out the cause. In her search for the truth, Meg raises painful questions that the people in the town would rather not answer: Was the teacher not what she seemed, not even close? Did a rebellious clan of teenagers take their revenge on a tough, critical authority? Or was it some greater evil that no one dares to acknowledge? The hornet' s nest Meg stirs quickly results in antagonism from school and local officials, as her quest probes a lot more than just a tragic but isolated incident. When unseen forces in the community target her as their enemy, first with threats, then with violence, Meg can no longer handle the danger alone. At her request, Meg is joined by maverick Los Angeles police detective Dan Jarrett, her father' s partner before his death in the line of duty. Jarrett must protect Meg and discover the truth about a teacher who never expected the result of her last assignment and a town that fiercely protects its own. Mrs. Wilkens prayed silently for someone to helpher. She looked over her shoulder as she continued to flee. She couldn' t see or hear them any longer but was certain they were still behind her, somewhere. By the time she saw what was just ahead of her, it was too late to stop, and she let out a blood-curdling scream that pierced the quiet at the edge of the earth.

Description : As the title of this book states, this is a collection of articles I have written over the years that have no particular relationship to each other. The articles are attempts to answer the following questions: Are there translation difficulties in the KJV? Was Matthias really the replacement for Judas? Are non-overcomers going to spend 1000 years in purgatory? When did Sunday replace the Sabbath? Was James really an incurable legalist who disagreed with Paul? Are modern translations better than the KJV? When you deal with the translation of biblical terms, do you know what you're talking about? How does the 1611 KJV differ from the version of the KJV we read today? These are issues that interested me at one point or another, and maybe others will be intrigued by them as well.

Opera Houses of Europe

Product : Opera Houses of Europe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The artist, Andras Kaldor, has been a lover of opera since childhood. He trained as an architect, then took to painting but his love of the opera finally proved the strongest influence and he has spent the last twelve years painting all the major opera houses in Europe. The facade of each opera house is illustrated in all its magnificent detail without the distractions of surrounding buildings and street scenes which often detract from even the best photographs. Each opera house has been personally visited by the artist. The drawings are first done in pen and ink in an architectural style with scrupulous attention to detail, and are then coloured in in gouache. The effect is stunning and allows the viewer to experience fully the complexity and exuberance of these flamboyant 18th and 19th century buildings. In addition to the facades Andras Kaldor has added many detailed drawings of particular aspects of both the exteriors and interiors of the buildings. The accompanying text is written, in many cases, by celebrities such as David Hockney, Bernard Levin and Sir Georg Solti. Background details of the history, architecture, composers, operas, and singers are given and, where appropriate, there are personal anecdotes.

But what are the factors that most people remember about this statement? Bill Clinton. Sexual relations. Ms Lewinsky. Almost all of us fall into the deadly trap of allowing poor communication skills to obscure our meanings, reduce our effectiveness and highlight our stupidity. According to author Bill McFarlan, most of us tend to talk in these negatives, which he terms 'pink elephants'. By drawing on personal and well-known examples, McFarlan provides a host of classic ?pink elephants? and the ways and means to avoid them. Bill McFarlan has been at the forefront of British media for over 25 years, starting with local newspaper reporting and ending up as a BBC and Sky Sports presenter. He has worked on many prestigious programmes, including Breakfast News with Jill Dando and Nicholas Witchell and The World's Strongest Man.
