This War Really Matters: Inside the Fight for Defense Dollars

Product : This War Really Matters: Inside the Fight for Defense Dollars
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Veteran military correspondent George C. Wilson paints a realistic picture of how defense budgets are constructed and approved. His fast-paced narrative interwoven with personal stories and insights from the major players gives readers an inside look at the battle between the 105th Congress and the Pentagon as they agreed on a 250 billion dollar defense budget. Accessible in level and style, Wilson's journalistic prose demystifies the Realpolitik among highly partisan members of Congress, the individual armed forces, as well as civilian and military leaders, thus giving readers a sense of the tradeoffs involved on all sides. With a critical eye, Wilson looks ahead to the wars of the 21st century and asks tough questions: are we ready for future wars or are we prepared for the last war -- the Cold War? Does the Pentagon need more money? Can it really do its job with less? Is pork barrel politics really necessary?

Product : The Seventh at St. Andrews: How Scotsman David McLay Kidd and His Ragtag Band Built the First New Course on Golf's Holy Soil in Ne
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An acclaimed Scottish golf course architect who had to go to America to make his name lands the most coveted commission in all of golf: to design the first new course in almost a century for the town of St. Andrews, the gameas ancestral home. David McLay Kidd became a wunderkind golf course architect before he was thirty years old, thanks to his universally lauded design at Bandon Dunes on the Oregon coast. When the town of St. Andrews announced in 2001 that a new championship course was in the worksathe townas first since 1914aKidd fought off all comers and earned the right to make golf history. Author Scott Gummer was there to chronicle the days in the dirt and the nights in the pubs, the politics and histrionics, all with exclusive access to David Kidd, his team, and the St. Andrews Links Trust. Unfolding in arresting you-are-there scenes, "The Seventh at St. Andrews" follows the young master at work as Kidd, with his sharp tongue, leads his accomplices in transforming a plot of flat, uninspiring farmlandasmack in the middle of which sits the townas sewage plantainto a rollicking golfing adventure and the most anticipated golf course opening in a generation. Murphyas Law seems to govern the process, however, as everything that can go wrong seemingly does: from epic wooly weather, to cattle grazing on the site, to vociferous opposition among the townsfolk, to bureaucrats so stuck in their ways they cannot be budged even with one of Kiddas bulldozers. The story chronicles the decade-long journey from the first notion of a seventh course to its official opening. Kidd & Co. exceed everyoneas expectations by building a magnificent throwback course that looks to havebeen shaped by the wind and rain and nature rather than modern machinery. "The Seventh at St. Andrews" brings the underappreciated art of golf course design to life, and along the way profiles an unforgettable cast of characters that includes Kiddas jovial father, a golf legend in his own right; Kiddas taciturn right-hand man; and the roustabout Scottish shaper, the Da Vinci in a adozer who is the heart of Kiddas crew.

One of the most recognizable names in porn, Adam Glasser has slept with more than six hundred women, on and off camera.

Next, Glasser tours every crevice of the female anatomy, with eye-opening explanations of a woman's orgasm- including female ejaculation-and surprising findings about what women really want in bed. From foreplay and oral sex to intercourse, all aspects of sex are demystified. The details of contraception, sex toys, anal sex, spanking, and the art of seduction are hammered home alongside hilarious anecdotes from Glasser's career (including one peculiar costar's climax-control technique).

Money Shot

Product : Money Shot
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The poems in Money Shot are forensic. Just as the money shot in porn is proof of the male orgasm, these poems explore questions of revelation and concealment. What is seen, what is hidden, and how do we know? Money Shot's investigation of these questions takes on a particular urgency because it occurs in the context of the suddenly revealed market manipulation and subsequent "great recession" of 2008-2009. In these poems, Rae Armantrout searches for new ways to organize information. What can be made manifest? What constitutes proof? Do we "know it when we see it"? Looking at sex, botany, cosmology, and death through the dark lens of "disaster capitalism," Armantrout finds evidence of betrayal, grounds for rebellion, moments of possibility, and even pleasure, in a time of sudden scarcity and relentless greed. This stunning follow-up to Versed--winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and a finalist for the National Book Award--is a wonderfully stringent exploration of how deeply our experience of everyday life is embedded in capitalism.

Renowned painter Lilli Niles is at home in her North London flat when she receives an unexpected call from her elder sister, Bea, who's at the family homestead in Whitehead, Massachusetts. Bea's husband has just died, and she'd like Lilli to fly home to attend the funeral. There are reasons Lilli moved all the way to England to escape her older sister, reasons that have kept them estranged for decades. But something in Bea's voice makes Lilli think it's time to return to the stately house in New England she loved as a child, to the memory of the beloved younger sister they both lost. With Bea more fragile than Lilli remembered, maybe she can finally forgive Bea for a long-ago betrayal that has simmered between them for nearly forty years.

What no one knows is that he's a full-blooded Frenchman--a double-agent for the British against the French. But there is something else no one knows about Derick. Deciding to leave behind his days of espionage, he's arrived home in Derbyshire to finish one final order of business: to find and expose a dangerous traitor. But Aveline castle holds its own share of secrets--including murder, and an unexpected lure in Emma Wallingford. Brilliant and feisty, her loyalty lies with acting as the town's magistrate, and she doesn't welcome an unanticipated, though appealing, intrusion like Derick. As the two of them are drawn closer, the sordid past of Derick's family comes to light, as does the true nature of his arrival. But when deception, however sweet, is the name of the game no one can be trusted, and every love--and every life--is at risk.

So You Think You Know Antietam?: The Stories Behind America's Bloodiest Day

Product : So You Think You Know Antietam?: The Stories Behind America's Bloodiest Day
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : September 17, 2012, marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam America's bloodiest day. To the people in the North it was Antietam, after the stream whose name translated from the Native American as the swift current. Those in the South referred to it as Sharpsburg, after the nearby town. Whatever the name, this much is undisputed: it was the bloodiest one-day battle in United States history. Following just 12 hours of combat, some 23,000 American soldiers were killed, wounded, or missing. The site of the battle of Antietam is remarkably preserved and looks much the same today as it did on that fateful day 150 years ago. Administered by the National Park Service, the Antietam National Battlefield contains nearly 100 monuments, each with its own story. So You Think You Know Antietam? honors those who took part in this darkest of days in our nation's history by telling the stories behind the monuments.

Holy Land in Maps

Product : Holy Land in Maps
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The history of the mapping of the Holy Land epitomizes the history of cartography itself. Situated at the crossroads of Africa, Asia, and Europe, the Holy Land has been the focus of intense interest for countless generations; under its various names--Canaan, The Promised Land, Palestine, or Terra Sancta--it evinces the longest unbroken sequence of mapping in the world. Two principal cartographic traditions dominate this fascinating history: the religious one, based primarily on the Bible and its exegeses; and the classical tradition, represented by Ptolemy, which laid the foundations of modern cartography. The present volume brings together for the first time an historical panorama of these maps: from a 6th-century mosaic from Jordan; through early Hebrew, Christian, and Islamic maps; to maps of the recent past. We see the 13th-century Hereford World Map, with Jerusalem at its center, and the 14th-century Catalan Atlas, drawn on vellum. Anonymous Czech and Italian maps of the 16th century are followed by German, Netherlandish, British, and French maps from the Age of Enlightenment. We arrive ultimately at cartographic representations of the 19th and 20th centuries, culminating in the advent of high-tech satellite imaging. These graphic representations manifest the geographical and political changes that have marked this region over the centuries, suggesting at one time physical realities, and at another persistence of imagination in its creative shaping of the world. Evidenced throughout, "Holy Land in Maps" is a testament to the painstaking craftsmanship and often delicate beauty that is a hallmark of the mapmaker's discipline at its best.

National Geographic Photography Field Guide: Digital Black & White

Product : National Geographic Photography Field Guide: Digital Black & White
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Veteran National Geographic photographer, photo editor, and filmmaker Richard Olsenius provides a compelling case for capturing the essence of people and landscapes through black-and-white photography and shares his secrets to mastering the craft.The ability of the black-and-white photograph to strip away the unnecessary and concentrate a message through form, shadow, and light provides its intrinsic strength. Because of its power to communicate, black and white is often chosen in the art, documentary, and commercial worlds. With 120 photographs illustrating the techniques used, this guidebook is as much about how to visualize a story in black and white as it is about the technical aspects of photography. With the popularity of digital cameras, Olsenius dedicates much time discussing the benefits of using digital technology for black-and-white photography, but he also discusses more traditional cameras and their uses. In addition to advice from Olsenius, this field guide includes the work of four other noteworthy photographers--Father Don Doll, Brian Peterson, Marion E. Warren, and Nick Kelsh--all covering a realm of different subject matter from Native Americans to commercial photography. For more than a century, National Geographic has been synonymous with expertise and excellence in photography. "National Geographic Photography Field Guide: Black & White" is a vital reference and how-to manual for photographers of all levels.

Baseball in New Orleans

Product : Baseball in New Orleans
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In July of 1859, seventy-five young New Orleanians came together to form the seven teams that comprised the Louisiana Base Ball Club. They played their games in the fields of the de la Chaise estate on the outskirts of New Orleans near present-day Louisiana Avenue. As America's population grew through immigration, so did the popularity of what the largest newspaper in New Orleans, the Daily Picayune, called in November of 1860 "the National Game." Baseball quickly replaced cricket as the city's most popular participant sport. In 1887, local businessmen and promoters secured a minor league franchise for the city of New Orleans in the newly formed Southern League, beginning the city's 73-year love affair with the New Orleans Pelicans. From Shoeless Joe Jackson, to Hall of Famers Dazzy Vance, Joe Sewell, Bob Lemon, and Earl Weaver, to today's stars such as Jeff Cirillo and Lance Berkman, the road to the majors brought many notable players through New Orleans. From these early beginnings to the present-day New Orleans Zephyrs of the AAA Pacific Coast League, local fans have continued the tradition of baseball in New Orleans.

Product : Wade Hampton Frost, Pioneer Epidemiologist 1880-1938: Up to the Mountain
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wade Hampton Frost was the first professor of epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University, in the first department of epidemiology in the United States. He began his remarkable career with the US Public Health Service, where his greatest contributions included the recognition that mild and asymptomatic childhood polio produced lifelong immunity, and the development of methods for tracking influenza epidemics. From 1919, as a professor at the School of Hygiene and Public Health at John Hopkins, he trained many future leaders of American public health programs. He also made substantial contributions to epidemiologic methodology, including developing the concept of an index case during investigations of tuberculosis in Tennessee, the use of life-table methods for estimating secondary attack rates, the use of age cohorts for longitudinal studies, and-in collaboration with Lowell Reed-the first mathematical expression of the epidemic curve. Drawing on personal papers, recorded interviews, and archival material, Thomas M. Daniel recounts the story of Frost's life and work, and elucidates his seminal contributions to epidemiology and public health. George Comstock, Emeritus Centennial Alumni Professor of Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins has provided an introduction. Thomas M. Daniel is Professor Emeritus of Medicine and International Health and Emeritus Director of the Center for International Health at Case Western Reserve University.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Kramer sets out to show that African images of Europeans--in sculpture, masquerades and above all spirit possession--are the reverse and also the counterpart of European images of the Other as savage, whether noble or ignoble. In ways which may echo 19th-century European realism, they reveal the power of the detail: a feather, a car, or the eponymous red fez which runs like a leitmotif through spirit possession cults of the early colonial period. "The Red Fez" demonstrates not only the startling likenesses to ourselves and our culture, but also reflections of forms of knowledge which this civilization has submerged.

The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child: Helping Your Child Thrive in an Extroverted World

Product : The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child: Helping Your Child Thrive in an Extroverted World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Introverted children are often misunderstood, even by their parents, who worry about them. Engaged by their interior world, they're often regarded as aloof. Easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation, they can be seen as unmotivated. Content with just one or two close friends, they may be perceived as unpopular. Parents fret that they are unhappy and maladjusted. But the truth is quite different: Introverted children are creative problem solvers. Introverted children love to learn. Introverted children have a high EQ (emotional IQ) and are in touch with their feelings. They take time to stop and smell the roses, and they enjoy their own company. They are dependable, persistent, flexible, and lack vanity. How can parents help their introverted children discover and cultivate these wonderful gifts? Help is here. Written by Dr. Marti Olsen Laney, author of The Introvert Advantage with 74,000 copies in print, The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child fully explains introversion as a hardwired temperament, not a disability, and tells just what parents need to do to help their child become the person he or she is meant to be--and succeed in an extroverted world. Beginning with a 30-question quiz that places a child on the introvert/extrovert continuum, The Hidden Gifts shows parents how to foster a climate that allows introverted kids to discover their inner strengths; schedule ways for a very young innie to recharge those batteries and teach an older child to do it for him- or herself; create a harmonious household with siblings, and parents, of different temperaments; help innies find success at school, sports, parties, and other group activities.

Biology Unmoored: Melanesian Reflections on Life and Biotechnology

Product : Biology Unmoored: Melanesian Reflections on Life and Biotechnology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Biology Unmoored "is an engaging examination of what it means to live in a world that is not structured in terms of biological thinking. Drawing upon three years of ethnographic research in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, Sandra Bamford describes a world in which physiological reproduction is not perceived to ground human kinship or human beings' relationship to the organic world. Bamford also exposes the ways in which Western ideas about relatedness do depend on a notion of physiological reproduction. Her innovative analysis includes a discussion of the advent of assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), the mapping of the human genome, cloning, the commodification of biodiversity, and the manufacture and sale of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Peter Lanyon: Modernism and the Land

Product : Peter Lanyon: Modernism and the Land
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : British painter Peter Lanyon transformed the art of landscape, rescuing it from picturesque depictions of the English countryside and resituating it as an art form capable of expressing radical ideas. The old European tradition of landscape--mostly concerned with ownership and leisure and not the daily life of the working class--was of no interest to Lanyon. His work instead reframed the consequences of war and industrialization upon a rapidly changing coastal landscape. In "Peter Lanyon," Andrew Causey sets out to explain just how this transformation occurred. Lanyon's family resided in West Cornwall for generations, and Causey asserts that the artist's concern with regional identity, along with his resistance to what he saw as a history of outsider exploitation of St. Ives and the surrounding areas, were integral to his art. Drawing on recent work by cultural geographers, anthropologists, and archeologists, Causey makes sense of Lanyon's relationship to the landscape and the pre-capitalist economy of his region. Provocative and insightful, "Peter Lanyon" is a thoroughly illuminating examination of the modern life of a landscape artist.

Welcoming the Undesirables: Brazil and the Jewish Question

Product : Welcoming the Undesirables: Brazil and the Jewish Question
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jeffrey Lesser's invaluable book tells the poignant and puzzling story of how earlier this century, in spite of the power of anti-Semitic politicians and intellectuals, Jews made their exodus to Brazil, "the land of the future." What motivated the Brazilian government, he asks, to create a secret ban on Jewish entry in 1937 just as Jews desperately sought refuge from Nazism? And why, just one year later, did more Jews enter Brazil legally than ever before? The answers lie in the Brazilian elite's radically contradictory images of Jews and the profound effect of these images on Brazilian national identity and immigration policy. Lesser's work reveals the convoluted workings of Brazil's wartime immigration policy as well as the attempts of desperate refugees to twist the prejudices on which it was based to their advantage. His subtle analysis and telling anecdotes shed light on such pressing issues as race, ethnicity, nativism, and nationalism in postcolonial societies at a time when "ethnic cleansing" in Europe is once again driving increasing numbers of refugees from their homelands.

Martyrdom & Politics of Religion: Progressive Catholicism in El Salvador's Civil War

Product : Martyrdom & Politics of Religion: Progressive Catholicism in El Salvador's Civil War
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : By examining the ways that Catholic activists responded to political violence in El Salvador during the 1970s and 1980s, this book documents the beliefs and history of an important religious community, and explores the nature of religion's role in political ideology and mobilization. Martyrdom and the Politics of Religion explores the ways that Salvadoran Catholics sought to make sense of political violence in their country in the 1970s and 1980s by constructing a theological ethics that could both explain repression in religious terms and propose specific responses to violence. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, the book highlights the ways that progressive Catholicism offered a justification and tools for political resistance in the face of extraordinary destruction. Using the case of Catholicism in El Salvador, the book explores the nature of religious responses to social crisis and the ways that ordinary believers construct and strive to live by ethical systems. By highlighting the importance of theological belief, of narrative, and of religious rationality in political mobilization, it touches questions of general interest to readers concerned with the social role of religion and ethics. "The author employs research that is both methodologically and conceptually innovative. She is working where the field of religion and politics in Latin America needs to be headed: research that focuses on the participants themselves and not just an institutional analysis of church and state". -- Michael A. Burdick, Center for the Study of Religion, University of California, Santa Barbara "This is a revelatory work. The reader is provided with fresh and unusual insights. There are popularaccounts of life and death in Central America but none, to my knowledge, that approach the subject from the theological depth which the author possesses". -- Edward L.

The Battle of Crecy, 1346

Product : The Battle of Crecy, 1346
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With additional contributions from FranAAA1/2oise Autrand, Christophe Piel, Michael Prestwich, and Bertrand Schnerb. On the evening of 26 August 1346, the greatest military power in Christendom, the French royal army with Philip VI at its head, was defeated by an expeditionary force from England under the command of Edward III. A momentous event that sent shock waves across Europe, the battle of CrAAA1/2cy marked a turning point in the English king's struggle with his Valois adversary. While the French suffered humiliation and crippling casualties, compounded by the consequential loss of Calais a year later, the self-confidence and military reputation of the English - from their king down to the lowliest of archers - soared. Well over half a century before Agincourt, the English had emerged as the most respected fighting force in Europe. This book assesses the significance of CrAAA1/2cy, and offers new interpretations of both the battle itself and the campaign that preceded it. It includes the latest research on the composition and organisation of the English and French armies, a penetrating analysis of the narrative sources and a revealing re-appraisal of the battlefield. It concludes with a fresh look at the role of the archer in Edward III's victory. Dr ANDREW AYTON is senior lecturer in history at the University of Hull; Sir PHILIP PRESTON is an independent scholar, and founding secretary of the Battle of CrAAA1/2cy Trust.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Memory is one of the few psychological concepts with a truly ancient lineage. Presenting a history of the interrelated changes in memory tasks, memory technology and ideas about memory from antiquity to the late twentieth century, this book confronts psychology's 'short present' with its 'long past'. Kurt Danziger, one of the most influential historians of psychology of recent times, traces long-term continuities from ancient mnemonics and tools of inscription to modern memory experiments and computer storage. He explores historical discontinuities, showing how different kinds of memory became prominent at different times, and examines these changes in the context of specific themes including the question of truth in memory, distinctions between kinds of memory, the project of memory experimentation and the physical localization and conceptual location of memory. Daniziger's unique approach provides a historical perspective for understanding varieties of reproduction, narratives of the self and short-term memory.

After Harm: Medical Error and the Ethics of Forgiveness

Product : After Harm: Medical Error and the Ethics of Forgiveness
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Medical error is a leading problem of health care in the United States. Each year, more patients die as a result of medical mistakes than are killed by motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS. While most government and regulatory efforts are directed toward reducing and preventing errors, the actions that should follow the injury or death of a patient are still hotly debated. According to Nancy Berlinger, conversations on patient safety are missing several important components: religious voices, traditions, and models. In After Harm, Berlinger draws on sources in theology, ethics, religion, and culture to create a practical and comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of patients, families, and clinicians affected by medical error. She emphasizes the importance of acknowledging fallibility, telling the truth, confronting feelings of guilt and shame, and providing just compensation. After Harm adds important human dimensions to an issue that has profound consequences for patients and health care providers.

Dumbstruck: A Cultural History of Ventriloquism

Product : Dumbstruck: A Cultural History of Ventriloquism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ventriloquism, the art of "seeming to speak where one is not," speaks so resonantly to our contemporary technological condition. We now think nothing of hearing voices--our own and others'--propelled over intercoms, cellphones, and answering machines. Yet, why can none of us hear our own recorded voice without wincing? Why is the telephone still full of such spookiness and erotic possibility? And why does the magician's trick of speaking through a dummy entertain as well as disturb us? These are the kind of questions which impel Dumbstruck, Steven Connor's wide-ranging, relentlessly inquisitive history of ventriloquism and the disembodied voice. Connor follows his subject from its early beginnings in ancient Israel and Greece, through the outcries of early Christian writers against the unholy (and, they believed, obscenely produced) practices of pagan divination. Surprisingly, he finds that women like the sibyls of Delphi were the key voices in these male-dominated times. Connor then turns to the aberrations of the voice in mysticism, witchcraft and possession, and the strange cultural obsession with the vagrant figure of the ventriloquist, newly conceived as male rather than female, that flourished during the Enlightenment. He retells the stories of some of the most popular and versatile ventriloquists and polyphonists of the nineteenth century, and investigates the survival of ventriloquial delusions and desires in spiritualism and the 'vocalic uncanny' of technologies like the telephone, radio, film, and the internet. Brimming with anecdote and insight, Dumbstruck is a provocative archeology of a seemingly trivial yet profoundly relevant presence in human history. Its pagesoverflow with virtuoso philosophical and psychological reflections on the problems and astonishments, the raptures and absurdities of the unhoused voice.

Imperial Bodies: The Physical Experience of the Raj, C.1800-1947

Product : Imperial Bodies: The Physical Experience of the Raj, C.1800-1947
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This innovative volume demonstrates that the body was central to the construction and maintenance of British authority in India. Imperial Bodies explores ways in which the transformation of the British presence in India between 1800 and 1947 involved and relied upon changes in the way the British in India managed, disciplined and displayed their bodies. The move from commerce to control, and then to imperialism and Empire corresponded to a shift in bodily norms. As the nineteenth century progressed, an openness and interest in India gave way to a ban on things Indian. The British rejected curries for tinned ham, cool white clothing for black broadcloth and Indian mistresses for English wives. By the twentieth century, the British official had been transformed into an upright, decent representative of British virtues whose task was to bring civilization to India. By the late nineteenth century, racial theory focused attention on the physique to such an extent that the body became a distinct category within official discourse, regarded as an instrument of rule. The body was used symbolically during Raj ceremonial, and even the pith helmet worn by officials was turned from a reminder of British vulnerability in the tropics into a symbol of British power. Through an in-depth discussion of texts and practices, the body is introduced into the historical account as an active social principle: a force in the construction of social inequalities along lines of race and class. Drawing on a wide range of sources including government records, newspapers, private letters, medical handbooks and cookery books, E.M. Collingham paints a vivid picture of the life and manners of the British in India. This important contribution to both British and imperial history will appeal to students and scholars of cultural and colonial history.

Product : The Politics of Subversion: A Manifesto for the Twenty-First Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this important book, Antonio Negri develops the key ideas that were to form the basis for the highly influential analyses of new forms of power and social struggle presented in Empire and Multitude. He shows how new technology and the break-up of the traditional factory have created new social subjects whose value is no longer tied to their skill. The spread of communication networks and the globalization of production mean that capitalism has become totalized - but not, Negri stresses, monolithic. On the contrary, the possibilities for subversion have correspondingly increased. Going beyond classical Marxism, he shows how old solidarities must be reformulated and new alliances created. The struggles which marked the political end of the twentieth century are now being repeated in a new historical conjuncture, giving rise to new forms of transnational solidarity that can challenge dominant global powers. This new paperback edition, which includes a new Preface by the author, is an excellent introduction to the work of one of the most influential political thinkers writing today and will be essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the new forms of conflict and struggle that will shape the world in the twenty-first century.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The birth of the railway in the early 1830's revolutionized the way the world waged war. From armored engines with swiveling guns, to the practice of track sabotage, to the construction of tracks that crossed frozen Siberian lakes, the "iron road" facilitated conflict on a scale that was previously unimaginable. It not only made armies more mobile, but widened fighting fronts and increased the power and scale of available weaponry; a deadly combination. In "Engines of War," Christian Wolmar examines all the engagements in which the railway played a part: the Crimean War; the American Civil War; both world wars; the Korean War; and the Cold War, with its mysterious missile trains; and illustrates how the railway became a deadly weapon exploited by governments across the world.

The Power of Denial: Buddhism, Purity, and Gender

Product : The Power of Denial: Buddhism, Purity, and Gender
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Innumerable studies have appeared in recent decades about practically every aspect of women's lives in Western societies. The few such works on Buddhism have been quite limited in scope. In "The Power of Denial," Bernard Faure takes an important step toward redressing this situation by boldly asking: does Buddhism offer women liberation or limitation? Continuing the innovative exploration of sexuality in Buddhism he began in "The Red Thread," here he moves from his earlier focus on male monastic sexuality to Buddhist conceptions of women and constructions of gender. Faure argues that Buddhism is neither as sexist nor as egalitarian as is usually thought. Above all, he asserts, the study of Buddhism through the gender lens leads us to question what we uncritically call Buddhism, in the singular. Faure challenges the conventional view that the history of women in Buddhism is a linear narrative of progress from oppression to liberation. Examining Buddhist discourse on gender in traditions such as that of Japan, he shows that patriarchy--indeed, misogyny--has long been central to Buddhism. But women were not always silent, passive victims. Faure points to the central role not only of nuns and mothers (and wives) of monks but of female mediums and courtesans, whose colorful relations with Buddhist monks he considers in particular. Ultimately, Faure concludes that while Buddhism is, in practice, relentlessly misogynist, as far as misogynist discourses go it is one of the most flexible and open to contradiction. And, he suggests, unyielding in-depth examination can help revitalize Buddhism's deeper, more ancient egalitarianism and thus subvert its existing gender hierarchy. This groundbreaking book offers a fresh, comprehensive understanding of what Buddhism has to say about gender, and of what this really says about Buddhism, singular or plural.

Remembering Santa Fe

Product : Remembering Santa Fe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Willard F. Clark was a printmaker and artist who greatly shaped the way the rest of the world views old-time Santa Fe, New Mexico. Born in 1910 in Boston, he grew up in Argentina, and studied art during the summers in New York City at Grand Central Station Art School and the Hawthorn Art Academy. In 1928, on his way to California, he stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico and fell in love with the majestic landscape of the American Southwest. There he started a small print shop and taught himself the craft of printing, cutting his own woodblocks, setting type, and binding small books. Willard Clark developed a graphic style that came to represent early Twentieth-century Santa Fe to many around the world. This collectible reprint of Recuerdos de Santa Fe, 1928-1943 includes 48 beautiful and original etchings, along with reminiscences from author Willard Clark that capture the old-time feel of Santa Fe, New Mexico. First produced as a limited edition book with 100 signed copies, this edition includes an introduction by the artist's grandson Kevin Ryan. Remembering Santa Fe makes a perfect gift for those who love Southwest art, an ideal memento of a Santa Fe vacation, or a charming souvenir for anyone interested in the art and artists of the West.

Rewriting the Renaissance: The Discourses of Sexual Difference in Early Modern Europe

Product : Rewriting the Renaissance: The Discourses of Sexual Difference in Early Modern Europe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Juxtaposing the insights of feminism with those of marxism, psychoanalysis, and deconstruction, this unique collection creates new common ground for women's studies and Renaissance studies. An outstanding array of scholars--literary critics, art critics, and historians--reexamines the role of women and their relations with men during the Renaissance. In the process, the contributors enrich the emerging languages of and about women, gender, and sexual difference. Throughout, the essays focus on the structures of Renaissance patriarchy that organized power relations both in the state and in the family. They explore the major conequences of patriarchy for women--their marginalization and lack of identity and power--and the ways in which individual women or groups of women broke, or in some cases deliberately circumvented, the rules that defined them as a secondary sex. Topics covered include representations of women in literature and art, the actual work done by women both inside and outside of the home, and the writings of women themselves. In analyzing the rhetorical strategies that "marginalized" historical and fictional women, these essays counter scholarly and critical traditions that continue to exhibit patriarchal biases.

Exercise Psychology

Product : Exercise Psychology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Awareness of the importance of exercise and physical activity to long-term health has never been greater. In the United States alone, 200,000 deaths annually are attributed to coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, colon cancer, and other diseases that result from physical inactivity. Growing evidence also suggests that inactivity is also a contributor to poor mental health. Despite this awareness, physical activity remains below recommended levels in developed countries around the world. Only one-fourth of the adult population in the United States exercises at levels high enough to maintain cardiorespiratory fitness and to reduce the risk of premature death. "Exercise Psychology" provides an in-depth examination of the psychological antecedents and consequences of physical activity relationships, helping the reader to understand the mental health benefits of exercise as well as the thought processes behind the decision to exercise or not to exercise. Features of the book include-chapters that are organized around key topics related to the mental health benefits of physical activity; -varying degrees of depth on subjects, making it easy for students at different levels of familiarity and sophistication to successfully grasp the concepts in the book; -research, ranging from biological psychology to social psychology, to give the reader a fuller understanding of the subject, which allows the book to serve as the sole source for a course; -over 100 photos and illustrations that effectively demonstrate difficult concepts; and -key points highlighted throughout the text to emphasize main ideas and to aid the reader in learning the material.Most sport and exercise psychology textbooks focus mainly on enhancing sport performance and provide minimal emphasis on mental health aspects of leisure-time physical activity and the problem of adopting and maintaining a regular exercise program. This text digs deep into the subject of exercise psychology, covering it from its beginnings in the late 1960s through the most current research. Part I, "Introduction and Basic Concepts," provides a historical look at the field, defines the basic concepts and approaches used, and offers a basic discussion of behavioral neuroscience. Part II, "Exercise and Mental Health," covers six separate topics related to mental health concerns and provides descriptive and experimental evidence of the benefits that physical activity provides in combating psychological distress. Part III, "Psychology of Physical Activity Behavior," examines the determinants of physical activity behavior, theories of behavior change, interventions used in increasing physical activity, and perceived exertion. "Exercise Psychology" fills the void left by sport psychology textbooks. It is the most up-to-date and complete textbook available on exercise psychology, and it is perfect for any sport and exercise psychology course.
