Fair Trade and Harmonization: Economic Analysis

Product : Fair Trade and Harmonization: Economic Analysis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The original contributions in "Fair Trade and Harmonization" investigate the growing conflict between free trade policies and the domestic environmental, labor, and antitrust policies of individual nations. They clarify the issues and offer a critical economic and legal analysis of the contending positions along with a series of proposals for resolving or reconciling them. Taken together, the two volumes present a comprehensive catalog of the government actions that are causing conflict in these areas and a critique of the existing scholarly literature on the subject. In each area, the contributors extensively discuss and analyze forms of policy harmonization and the arguments for and against it, with a goal of better understanding as a constant throughout. A more particular goal, however is to take a sober second look at, and impose some restraint upon, the growing chorus of demands to push aside the existing trade institution (the World Trade Organization) in the name of social policies, especially those regarding environmental and labor rights.

Economics of Industrial Ecology: Materials, Structural Change, and Spatial Scales

Product : Economics of Industrial Ecology: Materials, Structural Change, and Spatial Scales
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The use of economic modeling techniques in industrial ecology research provides distinct advantages over the customary approach, which focuses on the physical description of material flows. The thirteen chapters of "Economics of Industrial Ecology" integrate the natural science and technological dimensions of industrial ecology with a rigorous economic approach and by doing so contribute to the advancement of this emerging field. Using a variety of modeling techniques (including econometric, partial and general equilibrium, and input-output models) and applying them to a wide range of materials, economic sectors, and countries, these studies analyze the driving forces behind material flows and structural changes in order to offer guidance for economically and socially feasible policy solutions. After a survey of concepts and relevant research that provides a useful background for the chapters that follow, the book presents historical analyses of structural change from statistical and decomposition approaches; a range of models that predict structural change on the national and regional scale under different policy scenarios; two models that can be used to analyze waste management and recycling operations; and, adopting the perspective of local scale, an analysis of the dynamics of eco-industrial parks in Denmark and the Netherlands. The book concludes with a discussion of the policy implications of an economic approach to industrial ecology.

Fair Not Flat: How to Make the Tax System Better and Simpler

Product : Fair Not Flat: How to Make the Tax System Better and Simpler
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Everyone knows that the current tax system is unfair. Some of the richest people in America pay no tax, while a huge share of the tax burden falls on the rest of us. A mere glance at the tax code confirms that it is far too complex, with volumes of rules that no ordinary person could possibly comprehend. What is to be done? Some conservatives have called for a so-called flat tax. But a flat tax is not necessarily a simple tax, and "flat" means "more" for most taxpayers: a rise in middle-class taxes to finance tax cuts for the rich. Is there another choice? In clear, easy-to-understand language, Edward J. McCaffery proposes a straightforward and fair alternative. A "fair not flat" tax that is consistent and progressive would tax spending, not income and savings. And if it were collected at its lower levels through a national sales tax, most people would not have to file a return. A supplemental tax on spending for the wealthiest individuals would make the national sales tax progressive. Under McCaffery's system, a family of four would pay no tax on their first $20,000 in spending, and 15 percent on the next $60,000. Only the few families who spend more than $80,000 a year would be subject to the supplemental tax. Necessities would be taxed less than ordinary and luxury items. No one would be taxed directly on savings. The estate and gift or so-called death tax would be abolished, for the simple reason that dead people don't spend. The "fair not flat" tax would fall on heirs when and as they spend their good fortune. Perhaps best of all, most Americans would not have to fill out tax returns. Simpler, more efficient, fairer, and more reflective of America's current social values, McCaffery's "fair not flat" tax could help get us out of the tax mess that politicians and special interests have gotten us into, improving the whole country in the process. Read "Fair Not Flat" to find out how. "In "Fair Not Flat," Mr. McCaffery lays out the case for a consumption tax. He does so in a reader-friendly way, presenting his argument with very few footnotes, equations or technical terms. The consumption of the book, so to speak, is not at all taxing. And its argument is well worth pondering."--Bruce Bartlett, "Wall Street Journal "

Legalizing Marijuana: Drug Policy Reform and Prohibition Politics

Product : Legalizing Marijuana: Drug Policy Reform and Prohibition Politics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is a frontal assault on the federal government's almost century-long campaign against marijuana in all its forms-cultivation, growing, selling, and recreational and medicinal use. Beginning with the anti-pot campaign of the first unofficial drug czar, Harry Anslinger, in the 1930s and continuing with only minor differences in emphasis through the recent Reagan, Clinton, and two Bush administrations, federal efforts to stamp out every form of marijuana use involve ignoring the independent reports of numerous federal commissions; supporting provably false claims about marijuana's effects; acquiescing to conservative law enforcement and religious groups' condemnatory agendas; generating a climate of fear in the electorate in order to cultivate messianic images for politicians; and ultimately governing in a way that does a disservice to all involved.

Nonverbal Learning Disability

Product : Nonverbal Learning Disability
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nonverbal Learning Disabilities systematically identifies, describes, and explains the elements and dynamics of the nonverbal learning disabilities (NLD) syndrome. In addition, this groundbreaking work explores the ramifications of the NLD syndrome for both the theoretical and applied aspects of the neuropsychology of learning disabilities in particular, and for the field of child-clinical neuropsychology in general. Following an introductory overview, in which the development of a theory of the NLD syndrome is placed in its historical context, there is an informative survey of the different approaches that have been employed to determine the neuropsychological characteristics of various learning-disability subtypes. Examined here are criteria for the designation of children as nonverbal learning disabled. Also highlighted is another important focus of recent investigative efforts: the socio-emotional disturbances of learning-disabled children. To better understand the clinical implications of the NLD syndrome, several case studies of children and adolescents are presented, along with the results of their comprehensive neuropsychological examinations. Subsequent chapters are all devoted to an in-depth examination of the NLD syndrome - its characteristics (both assets and deficits), dynamics, and manifestations. Also discussed are the theoretical principles, developmental mechanisms, theoretical and clinical implications, and empirical tests of the Rourke (1987) NLD model. For child-clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, school psychologists, child psychiatrists, paediatric neurologists, and others involved with the learning impaired, this book provides a complete and authoritative account of the identification and classification of the NLD syndrome.

The House

Product : The House
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The restoration of a majestic old home provides the exhilarating backdrop for Danielle Steel's 66th bestselling novel, the story of a young woman's dream, an old man's gift, and the surprises that await us behind every closed door.... Perched on a hill overlooking San Francisco, the house was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. For her and for this house, he would spare no expense and overlook no detail, from the endless marble floors to the glittering chandeliers. Almost a century later, with the once-grand house now in disrepair, a young woman walks through its empty rooms. Sarah Anderson, a perfectly sensible estate lawyer, is about to do something utterly out of character. An elderly client has died and left her two gifts. One is a generous inheritance. The other, a priceless message: to use his money for something wonderful, something daring. And in this old house, surrounded by crumbling grandeur, Sarah knows just what it is. A respected attorney and self-described workaholic, Sarah had always lived life by the book. With a steady, if sputtering, relationship and a tiny apartment that has suited her just fine, Sarah cannot explain the force that draws her to the mansion and its history-to the story of a woman who once lived in the house, then mysteriously left it, to a child who grew up there, and a drama that unfolded in war-torn France...and to a history she never knew she had. Taking the biggest risk of her life, Sarah enlists the help of architect Jeff Parker, who shares Sarah's passion for bringing the exquisite old house back to life. As she and Jeff work to restore the home's every detail, as one relationship shatters and another begins, Sarah makes a series of powerful discoveries: about the true meaning of a dying man's last gift...about the extraordinary legacies that are passed from generation to generation...and about a future she's only just beginning to imagine. In a novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances, Danielle Steel brilliantly captures one woman's courageous choice to pour herself into a dream-and receive its gifts in return.

The Captain Departs: Ulysses S. Grant's Last Campaign

Product : The Captain Departs: Ulysses S. Grant's Last Campaign
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Early in 1885 Americans learned that General Grant was writing his "Memoirs "in a desperate race for time against an incurable cancer. Not generally known was the General's precarious personal fi-nances, made so by imprudent invest-ments, and his gallant effort to provide for his family by his writing. For six months newspaper readers followed the dramatic contest, and the hearts of Americans were touched by the General's last battle. Grant's last year was one of both per-sonal and literary triumph in the midst of tragedy, as Thomas M. Pitkin shows in this memorable and inspiring book. The "Memoirs "was completed; its remarkable literary quality made it a triumph. Ultimately more than 300,000 sets of the two-volume work were sold. And Grant accepted the inevitable with quiet courage, and faded away in a manner sadly familiar to many American families. Though told without maudlin touches, the story of Grant's last year will leave few readers emotionally uninvolved, for it is an account of pain and suffering as well as mighty deeds, and truly deserves to be considered the General's final victory.

A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven: The Jewish Life-Spiral as a Spiritual Path

Product : A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven: The Jewish Life-Spiral as a Spiritual Path
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A new book that celebrates the Jewish life-spiral, fusing ancient teachings of the Bible and rabbis with new rituals for the twenty-first century More than twenty years ago, Arthur Ocean Waskow published a book, "Seasons of Our Joy," that followed the flow of Jewish festivals through the year. It became a classic. Now, in "A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven," Rabbi Waskow and his wife, Phyllis Ocean Berman, have brought us a book for the other great cycle of Jewish life--from birth to death. They have woven handbook and history, spiritual guide and their own personal experience, ancient ceremonies and those brought forward by Jewish women today, into the single pattern of a well-lived life--a unity. The book moves from a new "covenant of washing"--the ritual act of parents washing a newborn daughter's feet to celebrate her arrival--to an examination of how "k'tubot," or marriage contracts, could be revised to affirm the commitments partners today need to make with each other, to ceremonies that celebrate the transformations of midlife, to enriching the rituals of grief in order to walk mourners through their own next spiral in the path of their lives.

Disinheriting the Jews: Abraham in Early Christian Controversy

Product : Disinheriting the Jews: Abraham in Early Christian Controversy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Disinheriting the Jews" is a scholarly work of great interest and significance for both Christians and Jews. Jeffery Siker shows how strongly the figure of Abraham has shaped our religious identities. He also uses the portrayals of Abraham by early Christians as a new means of understanding the dynamics involved in the church's separation and estrangement from Judaism. Siker argues that the separation was precipitated by historical contingencies more so than by Christian identity, and in so doing suggests self-corrections that could mend the rift between Christianity and Judaism.

English Society 1688 1832: Ideology, Social Structure and Political Practice During the Ancien Regime

Product : English Society 1688 1832: Ideology, Social Structure and Political Practice During the Ancien Regime
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is the first survey of the period between the Glorious Revolution and the Reform Bill to attempt to outline some general explanations of England as an ancien-regime state, dominated politically, culturally and ideologically by the three pillars of an early-modern social order: monarchy, aristocracy, church. In this schematic study, which stems from his earlier work on party-politics in these years, Dr Jonathan Clark combines techniques of analysis, historiographical review and narrative to produce a new and challenging synthesis of political ideology, religion, psephology, social structure and cultural hegemony. In its major reinterpretations of such diverse subjects as the wider impact of economic growth, the nature of the social hierarchy, Jacobitism, the Church of England, radicalism, Edmund Burke and the Reform Bill, this study has much to offer to students and senior historians alike.

Golf Without Tears: Stories of Golfers and Lovers

Product : Golf Without Tears: Stories of Golfers and Lovers
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Golf and love-the two primal obsessions. P. G. Wodehouse displays his most uproarious storytelling and never-ending jollity in these tales of lovers on the links. -Cuthbert Banks, champion golfer, wins the heart of his beloved Adeline, who won't give him the time of day until a visiting Russian author ignores everyone to fawn over Cuthbert's golfing prowess. -One man loses his fiance when he discovers golf late in life (on the eve of his wedding) and just can't stop thinking about it. -One golfing woman attempts to kill (with her niblick) her golfing husband who just won't stop talking during the game (he survives, cured of his garrulity). -One golf fanatic discovers, to his horror, that he has married a croquet player; their union is nearly sundered, until she takes up the ancient and royal game and matches his handicap. -Two men play a single hole sixteen miles long, requiring over eleven-hundred strokes, in a grudge match over the love of one woman. Other loves stand and fall by the vagaries of that infuriating tiny white ball. The end result is a collection of sublimely funny stories, dear to all golfers, and those who love them. Praise for P. G. Wodehouse "One of Britain's most talented comic writers."-"Time "Wodehouse on golf: a delight. He may have been a hacker on the course, but Wodehouse's drives, putts, and mashie shots were deadly accurate when it came to writing about the game."-The Boston Globe "Mr. Wodehouse's world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in."-Evelyn Waugh "A master, a genius of inventiveness and versatility, brilliant in his use of language, more adroit than almost any novelist since Dickens."-"The Daily Telegraph" "A brilliantly funny writer-perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has produced."-"The Times" "Mr. Wodehouse is a creature of pure light and joy."-"The New Statesman" Contents The Clicking of Cuthbert A Woman Is Only a Woman A Mixed Threesome Sundered Hearts The Salvation of George Mac

Description : "The Upanishads, " the sacred writings of Hinduism, predate recorded history. Since they were revealed to the Rishis of the Vedic civilization some 5,000 to 10,000 years ago, many have come to regard them as perhaps the greatest of all the books in the history of world religions: the work that contains the kernel of the mystical and philosophical truths that form the basis of all religious thinking today. Alan Jacobs has used free modern verse to convey the essential meaning and poetry of the original text, omitting Sanskrit words as much as possible and providing a clear, contemporary commentary.

Wi-Fi and the Bad Boys of Radio: Dawn of a Wireless Technology

Product : Wi-Fi and the Bad Boys of Radio: Dawn of a Wireless Technology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At 36,000 feet, Wi-Fi converts our airline seats to remote offices. It lets us read email in airports, watch video in coffee shops, and listen to music at home. Wi-Fi is everywhere. But where did it come from? Wi-Fi and the Bad Boys of Radio takes us back to when the Internet was first gaining popularity, email took ten minutes to load up, and cell phones were big and unwieldy. But Alex Hills had a vision: people carrying small handheld devices that were always connected. His unwavering purpose was to change the way we use the Internet. After being a teenage "ham operator" and bringing radio, TV and telephone service to the Eskimos of northern Alaska, Dr. Hills led a small band of innovators to overcome "the bad boys of radio" - the devilishly unpredictable behavior of radio waves - and build the network that would become the forerunner to today's Wi-Fi. "I know of no one so capable of telling the Wi-Fi story and explaining so clearly how the technology works. Alex Hills is certain to capture the public imagination with this new book." Jim Geier, Principal Consultant, Wireless-Nets, Ltd. and Wi-Fi author "Alex Hills has contributed to the developing world and to developing advanced wireless technology at one of the world's most tech-savvy universities. Working on both frontiers, Dr. Hills pioneered wireless Internet and launched a revolution in the way the world communicates. His story of how we "cut the cord" begins in a place where there were no cords to begin with -- remote Alaska." Mead Treadwell, Lieutenant Governor of Alaska and former Chair, United States Arctic Research Commission Alex Hills is Distinguished Service Professor of Engineering & Public Policy and Electrical & Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Hills is frequently invited to speak at conventions, conferences, university seminars, corporate training sessions, and community events. His talks, with their vivid stories and clear explanations of technology, have been well-received by audiences throughout the United States and in more than twenty foreign countries. An inventor with eleven patents, Dr. Hills can write and speak in technical jargon. But in his writing, as in his talks, he speaks to everyone -- technical specialists and the public alike. People of all backgrounds have been fascinated by his contributions to Scientific American and IEEE Spectrum magazines -- articles that explain technology in a style that is clear to any reader.

Description : Using surfing as a metaphor for motivational and self-improvement concepts and written in accessible, everyday language peppered with surfer slang, "Staying on Top "proves that the good life is available right now. Making these essential lessons fun, cartoon character Surf Master Alva appears throughout the book to dispense nuggets of wisdom that point the way to the good life, illustrating in a humorous and wise way that experts and gurus are not needed to understand and make the most of life.

Assessing their understanding of prevailing societal values portrayed through surfing metaphors and Surf Master Alva's quirky wisdom, Staying on Top will awaken people to the reality that living life to the fullest requires living in the present. Life right now is all anyone can truly be sure of: The secret to achieving and maintaining balance and serenity lies in accepting and embracing that truth.

Stars and Stardom in French Cinema

Product : Stars and Stardom in French Cinema
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : French cinema is second only to Hollywood in the number of its movie stars who have emerged to achieve international fame. France is, in fact, arguably the only country other than the United States to have an international "star system." Yet these glamorous and charismatic stars differ from their U.S. counterparts in that they maintain more freedom to control their own images and often straddle both mainstream and auteur cinema.Ginette Vincendeau, a leading authority on French cinema, analyzes the phenomenon of French film stardom and provides brilliant in-depth studies of the major popular stars of the French cinema: Max Linder, Jean Gabin, Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, Louis de FunFs, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, GTrard Depardieu, and Juliette Binoche. This volume analyzes these stars' images and performance styles in the context of the French film industry, but also in relation to national culture and society. In the country where Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve have modeled for Marianne (the effigy of the Republic) and left-wing politicians have held up Jean Gabin as a role model, Vincendeau examines the unusual relationship between French film stars and national identity.Ginette Vincendeau is professor of film studies at the University of Warwick. She is the author and editor of a number of books on cinema.>

Engels: A Very Short Introduction

Product : Engels: A Very Short Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It is by no means absurd to say that Engels invented Marxism. His work did more than Marx's to attract and make converts to the most influential political movement of modern times. He was not only the father of dialectical and historical materialism--the official philosophies of history and science in many communist countries--but was also the first Marxist historian, anthropologist, philosopher, and commentator on early Marx. In his later years Engels developed his materialist interpretation of history, his chief intellectual legacy, which has had revolutionary effects on the arts and social sciences. Terrell Carver traces its source and its effect on the development of Marxist theory and practice, assesses its utility, and discusses the difficulties which Marxists have encountered in defending it.

Discovery Passages

Product : Discovery Passages
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With breathtaking virtuosity, Garry Thomas Morse sets out to recover the appropriated, stolen and scattered world of his ancestral people from Alert Bay to Quadra Island to Vancouver, retracing Captain Vancouver's original sailing route. These poems draw upon both written history and oral tradition to reflect all of the respective stories of the community, which vocally weave in and out of the dialogics of the text. A dramatic symphony of many voices, "Discovery Passages" uncovers the political, commercial, intellectual and cultural subtexts of the Native -language ban, the potlatch ban and the confiscation and sale of Aboriginal artifacts to museums by Indian agents, and how these actions affected the lives of both Native and non-Native inhabitants of the region. This displacement of language and artifacts reverberated as a profound cultural disjuncture on a personal level for the author's -people, the Kwakwaka'wakw, as their family and tribal possessions became at once both museum artifacts and a continuation of the -tradition of memory through another language. Morse's continuous poetic dialogue of "discovery" and "recovery" reaches as far as the Lenape, the original Native inhabitants of Mannahatta in what is now known as New York, and on across the Atlantic in pursuit of the European roots of the "Voyages of Discovery" in the works of Sappho, Socrates, Virgil and Frazer's The Golden Bough, only to reappear on the American continent to find their psychotic apotheosis in the poetry of Duncan Campbell Scott. With tales of Chiefs Billy Assu, Harry Assu and James Sewid; the -family story "The Young Healer"; and transformed passages from Whitman, Pound, Williams and Bowering, "Discovery Passages" links Kwakwaka'wakw traditions of the past with contemporary poetic -tradition in B.C. that encompasses the entire scope of -relations between oral and vocal -tradition, ancient ritual, historical -contextuality and our continuing rites.

Crackers in the Glade: Life and Times in the Old Everglades

Product : Crackers in the Glade: Life and Times in the Old Everglades
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Crackers in the Glade is a visually stunning account of bygone days in the Everglades. The largest remaining subtropical wilderness in the United States, the Everglades holds a unique place among all the world's wetlands. Through his writings and illustrations, fisherman, guide, and self-taught artist Rob Storter transports us to the remote, half-wild frontier of southwest Florida in the early part of the twentieth century. There, the events cfa day could range from a hurricane to a face-to-face encounter with a panther to the arrival of the latest packet from Key West. As Storter recalls his travels through the great swamp and its estuaries, he imparts an old-timer's grasp of the fantastic array of plant and animal life the Everglades once supported. Looking back over a life closely linked to the water, he chronicles how mechanized methods eclipsed the more sustainable approach of fishing as the livelihood of locals who were attuned to natural cycles and worked by necessity on a small scale. Crackers in the Glade is also a story of family and community, of daily joys and setbacks. Here, Marilea Storter's recollections, some of which are included in the book, add depth and detail. By turns the family doctor, cook, teacher, and moral anchor, Marilea held husband Rob and their children together through times when the best house they had was a tent and medical care consisted of castor oil and prayers. Rob Storter knew the Everglades before commercial fishing, real estate development, drainage projects, and tourism changed the region forever. Through his illustrations we can celebrate its wonders; through his writings we can contemplate the mixed benefits of progress and theresponsibilities of stewardship.

On Friendship

Product : On Friendship
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Friends can help to form the basic structure of our lives but we very often take them for granted. Friends can sometimes be regarded as an oppressive burden when they appear to be greedily demanding too much of us. How to get the balance right is a perennial concern and the subject of much fiction and drama. But has this always been the case or is the nature and meaning of friendship changing in contemporary society? Ray Pahl explores these issues as well as discussing who needs friends most and when, how friends make us the people that we are and whether friendship is a new metaphor for morality. Pahl brings refreshing new insights to a form of relationship that has changed in its meaning and significance since the classical discussion by Aristotle. Drawing on a wide range of material, including history, philosophy, psychology and sociology, he focuses it into distinctive shafts of light which illuminate different aspects of this rich and multi-faceted topic. Understanding friendship is important at the private level, as we struggle with the problem of personal identity in a kaleidoscopic world, and also at the public level where inappropriate friendship emerges as cronyism or subtle varieties of political corruption. This accessible jargon-free book will appeal to a wide readership, since it does much to illuminate a fascinating topic at many different levels.

On the surface, Delia appeared to be a quite ordinary middle-aged Englishwoman content to spend her evenings with her sisters and mother and her days with her beloved horses. But Delia led a secret life -- and Guy turns up more than one person who would like to see Delia dead. Except Delia wasn't the only person with a secret....

Monumental: The Reimagined World of Kevin O'Callaghan

Product : Monumental: The Reimagined World of Kevin O'Callaghan
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Kevin O'Callaghan is a design wizard and "Monumental "is his manifesto, featuring hundreds of beautiful and useful design objects made out of obsolete, useless, cast-off technology. Since 1985, O'Callaghan has taught a now-legendary 3-D design class at New York's School of Visual Arts, where students solder, rivet, and weld the flotsam of mass-produced consumer culture into new, different, and, most importantly, functional objects. For "Yugo Next," an exhibition that toured the United States--and mesmerized the media wherever it went--students transformed so-called "useless" Yugo automobiles into a piano, a barbecue, a shower, a confessional, an accordion, a gigantic telephone, and a toaster that actually popped, among other things. O'Callaghan is a philosopher, comedian, entrepreneur, and social critic who shows how design can make the world a better place.

Empire and Others: British Encounters with Indigenous Peoples, 1600-1850

Product : Empire and Others: British Encounters with Indigenous Peoples, 1600-1850
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Much has been written about the forging of a British identity in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The process, unconfined to the British Isles, ran across the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean and was played out in North America and the Caribbean. The identities of Irish Catholics or Highland Scots who took part in the imperial venture abroad were subject to constant renegotiation. In the process, the indigenous peoples of North America, the Caribbean, the Cape, Australia, and New Zealand were forced to redefine their own identities. Although the encounter was far from equal, it was by no means simple or monolithic This collection explores the many complex ways in which identities were forged within Britain and among indigenous peoples through a process of collision and compromise. Contributions from Africa, Australia, and both sides of the Atlantic deal with different aspects of these encounters-for example, "Native Americans and Early Modern Concepts of Race" and "Hunting and the Politics of Masculinity in Cherokee Treaty-making, 1763-1775." "Empire and Others" provides a valuable study that will be of particular interest to students of Colonial American history and early modern British history. Contributors to the volume include Philip Morgan, Christopher Bayly, Andrew Porter, Hilary Beckles, and Peter Way.

New Kinds of Smart: How the Science of Learnable Intelligence Is Changing Education

Product : New Kinds of Smart: How the Science of Learnable Intelligence Is Changing Education
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ""New Kinds of Smart is an intelligent book about intelligence, the many things that go into it, and how educators can help students to get more of the cornucopia." Professor David Perkins, Harvard University, USA "This is an important and welcome book. It cuts through the hype about what the latest findings from cognitive neuroscience can, and more important, cannot tell us, and provides a comprehensive overview of what we know about learning." Professor Dylan Wiliam, Institute of Education, University of London "This immensely readable book explains the developments of learning theory and then applies those developments to classroom practice and takes that next vital step of explaining what that means for a learner." Professor Mick Waters, Chairman of The Curriculum Foundation " 20th Century schools presumed that students' intelligence was largely fixed. 21st century science says that intelligence is expandable - and in a variety of ways. "New Kinds of Smart" argues that this shift in the way we think about young minds opens up hitherto unexplored possibilities for education. For the first time ever, "New Kinds of Smart" brings together all the main strands of research about intelligence in one book and explains these new ideas to practising teachers and educators. Each chapter presents practical examples, tools and templates so that each new strand of thinking can be woven into their work as teachers and into their lives as learners. Topics covered include: Composite intelligence Distributed intelligence Expandable intelligence Social intelligence Practical intelligence Strategic intelligence Intuitive intelligence Ethical intelligence

Eating Apes

Product : Eating Apes
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Eating Apes "is an eloquent book about a disturbing secret: the looming extinction of humanity's closest relatives, the African great apes--chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas. Dale Peterson's impassioned expose details how, with the unprecedented opening of African forests by European and Asian logging companies, the traditional consumption of wild animal meat in Central Africa has suddenly exploded in scope and impact, moving from what was recently a subsistence activity to an enormous and completely unsustainable commercial enterprise. Although the three African great apes account for only about one percent of the commercial bush meat trade, today's rate of slaughter could bring about their extinction in the next few decades. Supported by compelling color photographs by award-winning photographer Karl Ammann, "Eating Apes "documents the when, where, how, and why of this rapidly accelerating disaster. "Eating Apes "persuasively argues that the American conservation media have failed to report the ongoing collapse of the ape population. In bringing the facts of this crisis and these impending extinctions into a single, accessible book, Peterson takes us one step closer to averting one of the most disturbing threats to our closest relatives.

Matrix Analysis

Product : Matrix Analysis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Linear algebra and matrix theory have long been fundamental tools in mathematical disciplines as well as fertile fields for research. In this book the authors present classical and recent results of matrix analysis that have proved to be important to applied mathematics. Facts about matrices, beyond those found in an elementary linear algebra course, are needed to understand virtually any area of mathematical science, but the necessary material has appeared only sporadically in the literature and in university curricula. As interest in applied mathematics has grown, the need for a text and reference offering a broad selection of topics in matrix theory has become apparent, and this book meets that need. This volume reflects two concurrent views of matrix analysis. First, it encompasses topics in linear algebra that have arisen out of the needs of mathematical analysis. Second, it is an approach to real and complex linear algebraic problems that does not hesitate to use notions from analysis. Both views are reflected in its choice and treatment of topics.

No Right Turn: Conservative Politics in a Liberal America

Product : No Right Turn: Conservative Politics in a Liberal America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few question the "right turn" America took after 1966, when liberal political power began to wane. But if they did, No Right Turn suggests, they might discover that all was not really "right" with the conservative golden age. A provocative overview of a half century of American politics, the book takes a hard look at the counterrevolutionary dreams of liberalism's enemies--to overturn people's reliance on expanding government, reverse the moral and sexual revolutions, and win the Culture War--and finds them largely unfulfilled. David Courtwright deftly profiles celebrated and controversial figures, from Clare Booth Luce, Barry Goldwater, and the Kennedy brothers to Jerry Falwell, David Stockman, and Lee Atwater. He shows us Richard Nixon's keen talent for turning popular anxieties about morality and federal meddling to Republican advantage--and his inability to translate this advantage into reactionary policies. Corporate interests, boomer lifestyles, and the media weighed heavily against Nixon and his successors, who placated their base with high-profile attacks on crime, drugs, and welfare dependency. Meanwhile, religious conservatives floundered on abortion and school prayer, obscenity, gay rights, and legalized vices like gambling, and fiscal conservatives watched in dismay as the bills mounted. We see how President Reagan's melange of big government, strong defense, lower taxes, higher deficits, mass imprisonment, and patriotic symbolism proved an illusory form of conservatism. Ultimately, conservatives themselves rebelled against George W. Bush's profligate brand of Reaganism. Courtwright's account is both surprising and compelling, a bracing argument against some of our most cherished cliches about recent American history.

Description : Building the customer-centered company: systems, structures, metrics, and hard work. -- Customer focus: Beyond happy talk to action -- Identifying, inculcating, and strengthening every aspect of a customer-focused business culture. Everyone talks about creating a "customer-centered culture." In CustomerCulture, the executive who pioneered FedEx's legendary customer culture shows exactly how to go beyond talk and make it happen -- for real Michael Basch identifies the key cultural obstacles and leadership failures that dilute customer focus, and demonstrates how to build systems and structures that help good people deliver great customer service.

Step by step, he identifies the crucial decisions companies must make -- and the hard work they can't avoid -- if they're going to "walk the walk" instead of just talking a good game about customer focus. Endorsed by Fred Smith, the principal founder of FedEx, and current CEO. For every executive, manager, and business strategist.

At the center of the novel is Carol Kennicott, the wife of a town doctor, who dreams of initiating social reforms and introducing art and literature to the community. The range of reactions to Main Street when it was published in 1920 was extraordinary, reflecting the ambivalence in the novel itself and Lewis's own mixed feelings about his hometwon of Sauk Centre, Minnesota, the prototype for Gopher Prairie.

Globalized Islam: The Search for a New Ummah

Product : Globalized Islam: The Search for a New Ummah
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The spread of Islam around the globe has blurred the connection between a religion, a specific society, and a territory. One-third of the world's Muslims now live as members of a minority. At the heart of this development is, on the one hand, the voluntary settlement of Muslims in Western societies and, on the other, the pervasiveness and influence of Western cultural models and social norms. The revival of Islam among Muslim populations in the last twenty years is often wrongly perceived as a backlash against westernization rather than as one of its consequences. Neofundamentalism has been gaining ground among a rootless Muslim youth -- particularly among the second- and third-generation migrants in the West -- and this phenomenon is feeding new forms of radicalism, ranging from support for Al Qaeda to the outright rejection of integration into Western society. In this brilliant exegesis of the movement of Islam beyond traditional borders and its unwitting westernization, Olivier Roy argues that Islamic revival, or "re-Islamization," results from the efforts of westernized Muslims to assert their identity in a non-Muslim context. A schism has emerged between mainstream Islamist movements in the Muslim world -- including Hamas of Palestine and Hezbollah of Lebanon -- and the uprooted militants who strive to establish an imaginary ummah, or Muslim community, not embedded in any particular society or territory. Roy provides a detailed comparison of these transnational movements, whether peaceful, like Tablighi Jama'at and the Islamic brotherhoods, or violent, like Al Qaeda. He shows how neofundamentalism acknowledges without nostalgia the loss of pristine cultures, constructing instead a universal religious identity that transcends the very notion of culture. Thus contemporary Islamic fundamentalism is not a single-note reaction against westernization but a product and an agent of the complex forces of globalization.

Product : Ukraine's Orange Revolution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The remarkable popular protest in Kiev and across Ukraine following the cooked presidential election of November 2004 has transformed the politics of eastern Europe. Andrew Wilson witnessed the events firsthand and here looks behind the headlines to ascertain what really happened and how it will affect the future of the region. It is a dramatic story: an outgoing president implicated via secret tape-recordings in corruption and murder; a shadowy world of political cheats and manipulators; the massive covert involvement of Putin's Russia; the poisoning of the opposition challenger; and finally the mass protest of half a million Ukrainians that forced a second poll and the victory of Viktor Yushchenko. As well as giving an account of the election and its aftermath, the book examines the broader implications of the Orange Revolution and of Russia's serious miscalculation of its level of influence. It explores the likely chain reaction in Moldova, Belarus, and the nervous autocracies of the Caucasus, and points to a historical transformation of the geopolitics of Eurasia.

Description : When Lynn Darling met Lee Lescaze at the "Washington Post," they could not have been more different. He was older, married, more "establishment," a celebrated foreign correspondent and editor. She, who entered Harvard at age sixteen, was a brilliant wild child of the sixties. She lived life in the present tense, where every affair was an adventure. Then Darling fell in love and everything changed. This is a story of the many lessons love can teach us, of a marriage turned upside down and inside out, and all the tenderness, thrills, comfort, and yes, even disappointment, that comes with the territory. Lynn Darling thought she knew the narrative of her own life, until it really began with her "one true north," and now, ten years after his death, her story is still unfolding. "From the Hardcover edition."

Description : HAI HAS ALWAYS been an outsider. With a falcon mother and a deceased cobra father, she is considered a mongrel by most, an ally by some, and a friend by few. Hai's broken falcon wings are a painful reminder of the life she once led on the island of Ahnmik. And here in Wyvern's Court, the avian and serpiente royal family keep their distance, refusing to acknowledge her cobra bloodline. They know that Hai's magic is so volatile, she can barely control it, and images of the past and future threaten to overwhelm her. When Hai's cousin, Oliza Shardae Cobriana, abdicates the throne of Wyvern's Court, Hai has visions only of destruction: the serpiente king Salem, dying in her arms; the dutiful guard, Nicias, unable to save a generation of children; and Wyvern's Court engulfed in flames. Now Hai will do anything to protect her new home - even if it means betraying the very people who need her most.

The Guilt of Nations: Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices

Product : The Guilt of Nations: Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : How do nations and aggrieved parties, in the wake of heinous crimes and horrible injustices, make amends in a way that acknowledges wrongdoing and redefines future interactions? How does the growing practice of negotiating restitution restore a sense of morality and enhance prospects for world peace? Where has restitution worked and where has it not? The Guilt of Nations explores this increasingly important dynamic in world politics today. Beyond its moral implications, restitution reflects a critical shift in political and economic bargaining. While preserving individual rights, restitution also enables victimized groups to receive growing recognition as groups. Elazar Barkan traces instances of historical crimes, such as the incarceration of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II, the sexual abuse of "comfort women" by Japanese soldiers, and the recent controversy over the financial dealings between Swiss banks and Nazi Germany. He argues that, as countries including the United States, Australia, and New Zealand come to recognize past injustices toward indigenous peoples within their borders, both governments and minority groups are compelled to redress the history of colonialism and redefine national identity. While restitution is not a panacea, this ever-spreading trend represents a new moral order in world politics.

Travels in Alaska

Product : Travels in Alaska
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : John Muir first saw Alaska in 1879, only twelve years after it was purchased from Russia by the United States. Four more times, in 1880, 1881, 1890, and 1899, he was drawn back to this land of rivers and glaciers, sunsets and northern lights, campfires and Arctic stars. Few people have lived so many adventures, yet Muir was not a mere collector of adventure; the hazards he encountered - and many were spine-tingling - came as a result of his intense desire to examine new aspects of the natural world.

The Dead Republic

Product : The Dead Republic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The triumphant conclusion to the trilogy that began with "A Star Called Henry" Roddy Doyle's irrepressible Irish rebel Henry Smart is back-and he is not mellowing with age. Saved from death in California's Monument Valley by none other than Henry Fonda, he ends up in Hollywood collaborating with legendary director John Ford on a script based on his life. Returning to Ireland in 1951 to film "The Quiet Man"- which to Henry's consternation has been completely sentimentalized-he severs his relationship with Ford. His career in film over, Henry settles into a quiet life in a village north of Dublin, where he finds work as a caretaker for a boys' school and takes up with a woman named Missus O'Kelly, whom he suspects- but is not quite sure-may be his long-lost wife, the legendary Miss O'Shea. After being injured in a political bombing in Dublin in 1974, Henry is profiled in the newspaper and suddenly the secret of his rebel past is out. Henry is a national hero. Or are his troubles just beginning? Raucous, colorful, epic, and full of intrigue and incident, "The Dead Republic" is also a moving love story-the magnificent final act in the life of one of Roddy Doyle's most unforgettable characters.

Beyond the updated recipes, master baker Bernard Clayton also includes 100 new recipes, which are the result of ongoing research, further travels, and the generosity of fans and friends. For each recipe, Clayton also gives instructions for using either the mixer or the food processor and takes into account the shorter time needed for fast-acting yeasts. The "New Complete Book of Breads" offers an incredible range of variety, nearly, enough to supply a different kind of bread for a year of baking days. Here are wheat breads -- Honey-Lemon, Walnut, Buttermilk; a variety of sourdough breads; all manner of corn breads; breads flavored with herbs and spices or enriched with cheeses; and all the favorite "little" breads -- Kaiser Rolls, Mother's Biscuits, English Muffins, and Popovers.

The Populist Paradox: Interest Group Influence and the Promise of Direct Legislation

Product : The Populist Paradox: Interest Group Influence and the Promise of Direct Legislation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Do small but wealthy interest groups influence referendums, ballot initiatives, and other forms of direct legislation at the expense of the broader public interest? Many observers argue that they do, often lamenting that direct legislation has, paradoxically, been captured by the very same wealthy interests whose power it was designed to curb. Elisabeth Gerber, however, challenges that argument. In this first systematic study of how money and interest group power actually affect direct legislation, she reveals that big spending does not necessarily mean big influence. Gerber bases her findings on extensive surveys of the activities and motivations of interest groups and on close examination of campaign finance records from 168 direct legislation campaigns in eight states. Her research confirms what such wealthy interests as the insurance industry, trial lawyer associations, and tobacco companies have learned by defeats at the ballot box: if citizens do not like a proposed new law, even an expensive, high-profile campaign will not make them change their mind. She demonstrates, however, that these economic interest groups have considerable success in using direct legislation to block initiatives that others are proposing and to exert pressure on politicians. By contrast, citizen interest groups with broad-based support and significant organizational resources have proven to be extremely effective in using direct legislation to pass new laws. Clearly written and argued, this is a major theoretical and empirical contribution to our understanding of the role of citizens and organized interests in the American legislative process.
