Governing Health: The Politics of Health Policy

Product : Governing Health: The Politics of Health Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the first edition of the acclaimed Governing Health, Carol S. Weissert and William G. Weissert examined health care policy making from a long-term political perspective, describing how Congress, the president, special interest groups, bureaucracy, and state governments helped define health policy problems and find politically feasible solutions. Now, in this second edition, the authors have expanded their coverage and analysis to demonstrate their themes in four key time periods: 1965, when Medicaid and Medicare were passed; 1981, when OBRA came into being; 1994, when health care reform was at the forefront of President Clinton's agenda; and 2000, when health care reform formed a part of the presidential campaign platforms.

Remaking the Godly Marriage: Gender Negotiation in Evangelical Families

Product : Remaking the Godly Marriage: Gender Negotiation in Evangelical Families
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While religious leaders often have enormous influence over their members' beliefs and how they translate their beliefs into action in everyday life, the individual family remains the place where religious values are practiced and ultimately transferred to the next generation. As such, the family is an extremely important, though freQuently overlooked, topic of study for sociologists of religion. In Remaking the Godly Marriage, John Bartkowski studies evangelical Protestants and their views on marriage and gender relations and how they are lived within individual families. The author compares elite evangelical prescriptions for godly family living with the day-to-day practices in conservative Protestant households. He asks: How serious are the debates over gender and the family that are manifested within contemporary evangelicalism? What are the values that underlie this debate? Have these internecine disputes been altered by the emergence of new evangelical movements such as biblical feminism and the Promise Keepers? And given the fact that leading evangelicals advance competing visions of godly family life, how do conservative religious spouses make sense of their own family relationships and gender identities? Through in-depth interviews with evangelical married couples and an exhaustive study of evangelical family advice manuals, Bartkowski explores the disputes and ambivalence concerning traditional gender roles and patriarchal models of family life, which derive from the tension between evangelical Protestantism as a religious subculture and the broader American secular culture in which it is embedded. Bartkowski reveals how evangelical men and women jointly negotiate genderroles within their families and selectively appropriate values of the larger culture even as they attempt to cope with the conflicting messages of their own faith.

Identifying Race and Transforming Whiteness in the Classroom

Product : Identifying Race and Transforming Whiteness in the Classroom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As educators, how do we challenge and interrupt the social construction of whiteness in ourselves, in the classroom, in schools, and in the wider society? Coming from diverse backgrounds, the contributors in this volume draw on their own well-examined experiences of race, racism, and whiteness in developing effective antiracist pedagogies and classroom activities that interrupt and contest whiteness. They have explored their own lives from the selective position of their own memories and have traced the ways in which their assumptions - which they use to mediate and interpret the world around them - have been constituted by public ideological forces. They have collaborated with others in building alternative pedagogies and support systems, enabling them to teach, and at the same time, reflect on the assumptions behind and the effects of their teaching. The result is the work collected here.

Conversations with John Gardner

Product : Conversations with John Gardner
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This collection, selected from more than 140 interviews Gardner granted, presents a wealth of information on the life and art of one of America's foremost novelists. These interviews show him as a novelist, a charismatic teacher of creative writing, and a widely published scholar who has vast knowledge and who generated much literary information in his lectures and interviews. After the publication of such popular and critical successes as "Grendel" (1971) and "The Sunlight Dialogues" (1972), this philosophical writer with an enviable talent for storytelling was regarded as "a major contemporary writer." After Gardner had demonstrated that he was one of America's most prolific, versatile, and imaginative authors, he became one of its most controversial when he attacked the literary establishment in his book "On Moral Fiction" and in his interviews. These candid conversations reveal a man of contrasts and contradictions, a writer who, as one of his interviewers remarks, "brought to everything he did a passion that at times bordered on madness."

Freedom for a Change

Product : Freedom for a Change
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many Americans claim that they know what it means to be free, yet sit idly by as their duly elected officials take their freedoms away. Do we really know what it means to be free? Freedom does not simply exist; it takes the active understanding and participation of society to secure it. Thomas Jefferson observed this fact stating, quot;The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.quot; Simply knowing that individuals should be left alone and not subjected to government oppression is not enough. Without a clear understanding of the tenets of freedom and their application in society, the word freedom will simply become a pretense to convince citizens that all is well and no real action is required on their part. The time has come for Americans to return to the ideals that made our country free and reinforce the safeguards that secure it for our posterity. Otherwise, tyranny will prevail and our children will know even less freedom than we do today,if not complete slavery. In this groundbreaking new book, Timothy Baldwin outlines how the quot;Land of the Freequot; is rapidly becoming the quot;Land of Enslavement.quot; Drawing from biblical and historical sources, Baldwin shows readers what freedom truly is, how we are losing it, and most importantly, how we can reclaim it before it's too late.

With a Woman's Voice: A Writer's Struggle for Emotional Freedom

Product : With a Woman's Voice: A Writer's Struggle for Emotional Freedom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Having written a bestselling book at 22, survived a harrowing battle with anorexia nervosa, and pursued a successful career as a clinical psychologist, Lucy Daniels has led a remarkable life. In With a Woman's Voice: A Writer's Struggle for Emotional Freedom, her first book in 40 years, Daniels shares the experience of overcoming emotional hardships and gaining valuable insights from them, through psychoanalysis, that has enabled her to help others. With a Woman's Voice is Daniels' memoir of the struggles she faces as a writer and a doctor of psychology, struggles that began at a very young age and continued long after the success of her two novels. As the child of a wealthy newspaper family, Daniels was emotionally deprived by her demanding parents and plagued by her own feelings of inadequacy and helplessness. Sent to a mental hospital for treatment of her anorexia, she spent years enduring brutal regimens of electroshock therapy, insulin injections, and force-feedings. It was during this time that she wrote Caleb, My Son. Caleb, My Son became a national bestseller, earning accolades for its portrayal of racial and generational conflict in the South of the 50s. Her second book, High on a Hill, was a fictional account of the time she spent in the hospital. Her novels won her a Guggenheim fellowship and extensive praise. After this early success, Daniels succumbed to writer's block that lasted several decades. She tells in her memoir of her decision to examine and resolve her problems, leading her to seek psychoanalytic treatment while pursuing a doctorate in clinical psychology. After years of examining her difficulties and learning how they could be treated, she created a foundation that helps artists overcome emotional disorders and gain creative insight from both self-examination and psychotherapy. With a Woman's Voice recalls these achievements, and the difficult years that led up to them, with insight, humor, and wisdom. Daniels provides a moving account of

If We're Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, What Are We Reaching For?

Product : If We're Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, What Are We Reaching For?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this second issue of Emigre presented in our new book format we return to some topics that are close to our hearts. We look at the phenomenon of Helvetica, and the fact that this nearly 50 year-old sans serif is currently one of the three best selling fonts at many of the world's largest font distributors. But, as ten different designers tell us, not everybody is using it for the same reasons. Featuring interviews with Experimental Jetset, Michael Bierut, Ian Anderson, Michael Cina and others. We are reprinting the article "Legible?" which was published in Emigre No. 23 and written by the well-known Dutch type designer Gerard Unger. This is the first reprint from a previous issue ever. Rudy VanderLans explains why. Elliott Earls, who is not your garden-variety type designer and has some very specific ideas about how to draw type, gives us his unique outlook on what matters most when designing a typeface. We interviewed Rob Giampietro, who has coined the term "Default Systems Design" to describe a particular type of design that is rapidly spreading and is begging to be put under a microscope. Meanwhile Cranbrook design graduate Joshua Ray Stephens suggests that design styles are not where the action is. Also, we are featuring four short essays written in reply to our previous issue: Mike Kippenhan addresses graphic design's aversion to criticism and suggests we look at "American Idol" as a model to kick-start the comatose state of design inquiry; Patrick Fox tells us how pro bono work can keep an out-of-work graphic designer from committing desperate acts; Anthony Inciong ponders the responsibilities of graphic design education in an age defined by style and technology; and, finally, Armin Vit fires off a short essay in reply to the challenge put forth by the "old cranks" in "Rant." He may not be speaking for an entire generation of young and upcoming graphic designers, but we have a suspicion many of his contemporaries will agree with what he has to say.

Product : Sex According to God
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Bible isn't shy at all about speaking to this crucial issue of sex. It is my prayer that God might use this study guide to enlighten, heal, and liberate you. Because if your sex life is going to be all that it should be, then you must seek to understand God's mind on the subject. God's will is always good, acceptable, and perfect. Let's trust God to show us the best and most bountiful way to experience His blessed gift of sex."--Kay Arthur " "In this companion study guide to her groundbreaking book and video, "Sex...According to God," Kay Arthur approaches this vital topic not to shock or offend, but to boldly equip you to experience God's absolute best for your life-whether you're married or single-by understanding and obeying His will regarding sex. This" "practical, powerful guide will take you through the Scriptures to answer the questions you're most likely struggling with: -Why do we have sex anyway? -What does God allow when it comes to sex-when, where, and with whom? -If we both want it, who are we hurting? -Are homosexuals born that way, or can they change? -Why does God restrict my freedom-doesn't He want me to be happy? -Are these feelings that seem so uncontrollable normal? -What do I do if I've messed up? -And much more Experience the ultimate liberation by understanding and living according to God's will for sex. As Kay explains, "Sex really is beautiful. Yet the beauty of sex shines all the more brilliantly when seen in the pure light of God's Word."

Deckscaping: Gardening and Landscaping on and Around Your Deck

Product : Deckscaping: Gardening and Landscaping on and Around Your Deck
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Decks are popular in North American landscapes because they serve as outdoor sanctuaries. They are in the back yard, where life is quiet and less hectic. The deck is the perfect place to read the Sunday paper, listen to a ballgame, or entertain when the weather's nice. But a large, flat expanse of deck isn't all that exciting. Often, decks look bare and uninviting and can take up valuable gardening space. With DECKSCAPING, learn to landscape on and around your deck. Landscaping and planting techniques help create the feeling that the deck is surrounded by the garden while hiding the deck's unsightly undercarriage. Add structure and privacy to the deck by building a lattice-covered pergola and growing climbing vines on it for shade. Containers planted with flowers, herbs, or vegetables bring the garden, with its fragrances, butterflies, birds, and wildlife, right up onto the deck. Running low on space? Attach hanging baskets and planter boxes to the railing. What you plant around your deck is just as important as what you plant around your house. In addition to teaching landscaping and planting techniques, DECKSCAPING provides decorating tips on furniture, ornaments, and water features that strengthen the link between indoor and outdoor rooms. Homeowners will also learn how to evaluate a deck, analyze its usefulness and effectiveness, and identify options to improve it so that it is comfortable, safe, and appealing.

Aikido in America

Product : Aikido in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Aikido in America" is made up of first person narratives from a number of senior American Aikido practitioners. These are in-depth interviews which the subjects have participated in rewriting, and they give the broad scope of aikido. These interviews with two generations of American martial artists describe how aikido translated from Japan into an American art--integrating some Amercan values, yet remaining an essentially Japanese cultural tradition. The book is as much a history of Aikido in the United States as it is a philosophical treatise that is tongue-in-cheek at appropriate junctures. It is a nice contrast to the technical manuals out there, and it should appeal to the seasoned practitioner and beginner alike.

Decoding Doomsday: The 2012 Prophecies, the Apocalypse, and the Perilous Days Ahead

Product : Decoding Doomsday: The 2012 Prophecies, the Apocalypse, and the Perilous Days Ahead
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Do megalithic monuments and books of ancient wisdom predict the date the world ends? Dozens of books have been published on the topic of 2012, mostly reflecting a "new age" perspective, proposing that their "pop" point of view is authoritative and reliable. This opinion is shaped by Mayan scholars, pseudo-archeologists, channelers, mediums, shamans, and alternative historians. Likewise, these pundits draw upon ancient sources which range from the Mayan calendar, the I Ching, The Kolbrin Bible, to Plato's Atlantis. The key to our future appears connected to the study of the past. However, upon a deeper look, today's pop apocalyptic writers continue an esoteric tradition thousands of years in the making. Is there a common thread running through the meaning of monuments, alien abductions, UFOs, crop circles, the New Age Movement, conspiracy theories, Freemasonry, and Pyramidology? Decoding Doomsday argues that by studying the claims of the 2012 enthusiasts in light of apocalyptic history, we can make sense of the current clamor. Furthermore, flying in the face of conventional wisdom, the author asserts that the expectation of the Apocalypse can actually be a healthy concern, essential to the position of authentic Christianity. Finally, he maintains Doomsday is already decoded. History's last day is plainly disclosed in the Bible.

Description : Going behind the scenes with Ozzie Guillen, baseball's most colorful and irrepressible manager, to reveal the hidden factors that create a winning team When Ozzie Guillen opens his mouth, nobody knows what's going to come out. And that has made the manager of the Miami Marlins endlessly entertaining to legions of baseball fans. In language that is often as profane as it is colorful, he will lash out not only at his team's opponents but also at his own players, reporters, fans, and most of all, himself. He is always getting himself in hot water, and he loves every minute of it. Yet for all the antics and controversy, Guillen is also one of the game's best managers--a World Series champion and a perennial contender. This book opens the door on the secrets to his success. "Ozzie's School of Management" distills the ten commandments of managing, Guillen-style, which means no-holds-barred and leave your squeamishness at the door. The "Chicago Sun-Times" sports columnist Rick Morrissey, who built a strong rapport with Guillen during his eight years with the Chicago White Sox, takes us on a rollicking ride through Ozzie's world, shining a light on his sharp intellect, organizational insights, and changing moods, and showing that the most important part of managing occurs before the first pitch and after the last out.

Mrs. Winterson, a thwarted giantess, loomed over the novel and the author's life: when Jeanette left home at sixteen because she was in love with a woman, Mrs. Winterson asked her: Why be happy when you could be normal? This is Jeanette's story--acute, fierce, celebratory--of a life's work to find happiness: a search for belonging, love, identity, a home. About a young girl locked out of her home, sitting on the doorstep all night, and a mother waiting for Armageddon with two sets of false teeth and a revolver in the duster drawer; about growing up in a northern industrial town; about the Universe as a Cosmic Dustbin. She thought she had written over the painful past until it returned to haunt her and sent her on a journey into madness and out again, in search of her biological mother. It is also about other people's stories, showing how fiction and poetry can form a string of guiding lights, a life raft that supports us when we are sinking. "From the Hardcover edition."

Apostle Islands

Product : Apostle Islands
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Tommy Zurhellen continues his rollicking present-day retelling of Jesus' life in Apostle Islands, his much-anticipated sequel to the story of the modern Messiah begun in Nazareth, North Dakota. Zurhellen says setting his playful take on the New Testament in the upper Midwest was a natural move. Inspired by the Apostle Islands of the novel's title, Zurhellen picks up Sam's story as he emerges from forty days and nights in the North Dakotan Badlands. Supported by his loyal band of rough-and-ready bikers, Sam struggles to find his way and fulfill his mission on the shores of Lake Superior. His popularity spreads as he saves wedding receptions and cures cancer patients, but as he soon finds out, radical ideas and a diehard following are two easy ways to make enemies. Especially with the FBI. With its fresh and irreverent perspective on some familiar faces, Apostle Islands tells a new story, all its own, that unabashedly asks just how much we're willing to sacrifice for the ones we love.

The Eclipse of Equality: Arguing America on Meet the Press

Product : The Eclipse of Equality: Arguing America on Meet the Press
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Red state vs. blue state. Republican vs. Democrat. Fox News vs. "The Daily Show." The so-called culture wars have become such a fixture of American politics that dividing the country into rival camps seems natural and political gridlock seems inevitable. Entering the fray, Solon Simmons offers an intriguing twist on the debate: Our disagreements come not from unbridgeable divides, but from differing interpretations of a single underlying American tradition--liberalism. Both champions of traditional liberal values, Republicans have become the party of individual freedom while Democrats wear the mantle of tolerance. Lost in this battle of sides is the third pillar of liberalism--equality. Simmons charts the course of American politics through the episodes of "Meet the Press." On the air since 1945, "Meet the Press" provides an unparalleled record of living conversation about the most pressing issues of the day. In weekly discussions, the people who directly influenced policy and held the reins of power in Washington set the political agenda for the country. Listening to what these people had to say--and importantly how they said it--"Meet the Press" opens a window on how our political parties have become so divided and how notions of equality were lost in the process. Telling the story of the American Century, Simmons investigates four themes that have defined politics and, in turn, debate on "Meet the Press"--war and foreign affairs, debt and taxation, race struggles, and class and labor relations--and demonstrates how political leaders have transformed these important political issues into symbolic pawns as each party advocates for their own understanding of liberty, whether freedom or tolerance. Ultimately, with "The Eclipse of Equality," he looks to bring back to the debate the question lurking in the shadows--how can we ensure the protection of a peaceful civil society and equality for all?

Sewing Women: Immigrants and the New York City Garment Industry

Product : Sewing Women: Immigrants and the New York City Garment Industry
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many Latino and Chinese women who immigrated to New York City over the past two decades found work in the garment industry-an industry well known for both hiring immigrants and its harsh working conditions. Today the garment industry is one of the largest immigrant employers in New York City and workers in Chinese- and Korean-owned factories produce 70 percent of all manufactured clothing in New York City. Based on extensive interviews with workers and employers, Margaret M. Chin, offers a detailed and complex portrait of the work lives of Chinese and Latino garment workers. Chin, whose mother and aunts worked in Chinatown's garment industry, also explores how immigration status, family circumstances, ethnic relations, and gender affect the garment industry workplace. In turn, she analyzes how these factors affect whom employers hire and what wages and benefits are given to the employees. Chin's study contrasts the working conditions and hiring practices of Korean- and Chinese-owned factories. Her comparison of the two practices illuminates how ethnic ties both improve and hinder opportunities for immigrants. While both sectors take advantage of workers and are characterized by low wages and lax enforcement of safety regulations-there are crucial differences. In the Chinese sector, owners encourage employees, almost entirely female, to recruit new workers, especially friends and family. Though Chinese workers tend to be documented and unionized, this work arrangement allows owners to maintain a more paternalistic relationship with their employees. Gender also plays a major role in channeling women into the garment industry, as Chinese immigrants, particularly those with children, tend to maintain traditional gender roles in the workplace. Korean-owned shops, however, hire mostly undocumented Mexican and Ecuadorian workers, both male and female. These workers tend not to have children and are thus less tied to traditional gender roles. Unlike their Chinese counterparts, Korean employers hire workers on their own terms and would rather not allow current employees to influence their decisions. Chin's work also provides an overview of the history of the garment industry, examines immigration strategies, and concludes with a discussion of changes in the industry in the aftermath of 9/11.

Civil War Journalism

Product : Civil War Journalism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Civil War was the first American war widely covered by the press, with an estimated 500 reporters from the North and South covering the conflict. Thousands of photographs were taken during the war, and more than 3,000 illustrations and cartoons were published in magazines, along with daily articles and editorials about the conflict as well. As a result, the press played a significant role in the war, just as the war played an important role in the development of the press. "Civil War Journalism" presents a unique synthesis of the journalism of both the North and South during the war. It features a compelling cast of characters, including editors Horace Greeley and John M. Daniel, correspondents George Smalley and Peter W. Alexander, photographers Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner, and illustrators Alfred Waud and Thomas Nast. Written to appeal to those interested in the Civil War in general and in journalism specifically, as well as general readers, the work provides an introductory overview of journalism in the North and South on the eve of the Civil War. The following chapters examine reporting during the war, editorializing about the war, photographing and illustrating the war, censorship and the government relations, and the impact of the war on the press.

Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models

Product : Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest and activity in the general area of nonparametric smoothing in statistics. This monograph concentrates on the roughness penalty method and shows how this technique provides a unifying approach to a wide range of smoothing problems. The method allows parametric assumptions to be realized in regression problems, in those approached by generalized linear modelling, and in many other contexts. The emphasis throughout is methodological rather than theoretical, and it concentrates on statistical and computation issues. Real data examples are used to illustrate the various methods and to compare them with standard parametric approaches. Some publicly available software is also discussed. The mathematical treatment is self-contained and depends mainly on simple linear algebra and calculus. This monograph will be useful both as a reference work for research and applied statisticians and as a text for graduate students and other encountering the material for the first time.

An Ethic of Care: Feminist and Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Product : An Ethic of Care: Feminist and Interdisciplinary Perspectives
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the 1970s a student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education undertook a study of moral decision-making in real-life situations. Her results contested a widely accepted model which saw the goal of moral development as the autonomous self speaking in the voice of justice. Published in 1982, Carol Gilligan's "In A Different Voice" proposed a new model of moral reasoning based on care, arguing that it better described the moral life of women. An immediate center of controversy and one of the most widely discussed books of our time, "In A Different" "Voice" launched the ethic of care as a field of study. "An Ethic of Care" is the first volume to bring together key contributions to the extensive debate engaging Gilligan's work. It provides the highlights of the often impassioned discussion of the ethic of care, drawing on the literature of the wide range of disciplines that have entered into the debate. The contributors examine a range of topics from the early claims of brilliance made for Gilligan's break from established developmental theory and the questions raised concerning her methodology, to more recent attempts to address underlying issues that function as uncritical assumptions in her work issues dealing with notions of autonomy and independence in contrast to the connectedness she championed, and the dangers of her focus on the virtues that have traditionally served to keep women in the private sphere. The volume gives particular attention to the debates in moral philosophy, as a new feminist ethics addresses the reality of women's lives; empirical studies within psychology that examine Gilligan's allegations of sex differences in moral reasoning; and challenges to Gilligan's work that claim it leaves African American and other cultures out of account. "An Ethic of Care" is intended for all readers interested in major feminist issues. Contributors: Annette Baier, Diana Baumrind, Lawrence A. Blum, Mary Brabeck, John Broughton, Owen Flanagan, Marilyn Friedman, Carol Gilligan, Catherine G. Greeno, Catherine Jackson, Linda K. Kerber, Mary Jeanne Larrabee, Zella Luria, Eleanor E.

Description : A distinguished political philosopher with years of experience teaching in undergraduate liberal arts programs, Anderson shows how the ideal of practical reason can reconcile academia's research aims with public expectations for universities: the preparation of citizens, the training of professionals, the communication of a cultural inheritance. It is not good enough, he contends, to simply say that the university should stick to the great books of the classic tradition, or to denounce this tradition and declare that all important questions are a matter of personal or cultural choice. By applying the methods of practical reason, instead, teachers and students will think critically about the essential purposes of any human activity and the underlying arguments of any text.

You'll Be Scared. Sure-You'll Be Scared - Fear, Stress, and Coping in the Civil War

Product : You'll Be Scared. Sure-You'll Be Scared - Fear, Stress, and Coping in the Civil War
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Fear is contagious, but so is courage." Fear-it's merely a warning to the senses of potential injury or threat. It directs actions away from danger and increases the chances of survival. It grips every soldier's heart as he draws near the enemy. But before that happens, this emotion has been altered by a concoction of physical and mental stresses that affect the reaction to danger and the ability to manage fear. Stressors such as physical fatigue, lack of sleep, hunger, conflict of values, the clash between self-preservation and the obligations to duty and fellow soldiers all shape responses to actions. How did they struggle through combat yet still manage to perform? Proper motivation, morale, discipline, and training all helped. Diversions aided soldiers by directing their attention away from fear. Some managed fear through denial, others by acclimation, or some simply accepted their destiny as fate. This work explores how fear and stress challenged soldiers in the Civil War and the means used to cope through their desperate situations. It includes many eyewitness accounts and observations of what soldiers experienced as they approached battlefields, engaged in combat, and the impressions stamped into their minds that lasted a lifetime.

Infinite Bonds of Family

Product : Infinite Bonds of Family
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The history of the family is a relatively new, yet rapidly developing area of academic study. With this book, Cynthia Comacchio presents lithe first historical overview of domestic life in Canada. According to Comacchio, the sense of families being 'in crisis' has been a perpetual source of social anxiety that has had significant influence on evolving social policy. Comacchio shows how families have both changed and remained the same, given the impact of urbanization, industrialization, and war. Her many stories of individual families highlight both historical trends and more intimate issues related to race, gender, class, region, and age. This is the only synthesis to date of the historical literature on Canadian families. Designed for students at graduate and undergraduate levels, it not only introduces the key concepts and approaches of a developing field of study but also summarizes the major issues and trends that have affected Canadian families over the near-century between 1850 and 1940.

Aesthetics of the Natural Environment

Product : Aesthetics of the Natural Environment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A new statement of how "beauty" in nature is understood and appreciated. Aesthetic experience is one of the fundamental ways that we develop a relationship to our natural surroundings. Emily Brady provides a comprehensive study of this type of experience and the central philosophical issues related to it, developing her own original theory of aesthetic appreciation of nature. She provides useful background to the current debate and an up-to-date critical appraisal of contemporary theories. The context of the contemporary debate is laid out through a discussion of aesthetic experience and aesthetic qualities; early theories of aesthetic appreciation of nature, including the beautiful, the sublime, and the picturesque; and differences between artistic and environmental appreciation and interpretation. Brady situates her own approach in relation to a set of noncognitive accounts of appreciation. Her "integrated aesthetic" brings together various features of appreciation, including the senses, emotion, and imagination, with a reappraisal of the concept of disinterestedness. These ideas are further developed within the more practical domains of aesthetic judgment and education of the environment and through an examination of the role of aesthetic value in environmental conservation. Arnold Berleant of Long Island University, a pioneer in this area of research, has declared Brady's work, "admirably comprehensive coverage of the subject." Julie C. Van Camp of California State University, Long Beach, has said, "The bibliography is priceless.... The discussions of such philosophers as Kant and Dewey seem plausible and understandable to an audience of students and the educated public." This bookwill be valuable to readers interested in such wide-ranging subjects as philosophy, aesthetics, ethics, ecology, conservation, environmental policy-making, geography, and landscape architecture.

The Kabbalist: A Cinematic Novel

Product : The Kabbalist: A Cinematic Novel
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At the dawn of the deadliest era in human history, the 20th century, a mysterious man appeared on the socio-political scene carrying a stern warning for humanity and an unlikely solution to its suffering. In his writings, Kabbalist Yehuda Ashlag described in clarity and great detail the wars and upheavals he foresaw, and even more strikingly, the current economic, political, and social crises we are facing today. His deep yearning for a united humanity has driven him to unlock The Book of Zohar and make it-and the unique force contained therein-accessible to all. The Kabbalist is a cinematic novel that will turn on its head everything you thought you knew about Kabbalah, spirituality, freedom of will, and our perception of reality. It is the first book of its kind to try to convey the inner workings and sensations of a Kabbalist who reached the highest level of attainment, a person who is in direct contact with the singular force governing all of reality. The Kabbalist carries a surprising message of unity with scientific clarity and poetic depth. It transcends religion, nationality, mysticism, and the sheer fabric of space and time to show us that the only miracle is the one taking place within, when we begin to act in harmony with Nature and with the entire humanity. It shows us that we can all be Kabbalists.

The Provincials: A Personal History of Jews in the South

Product : The Provincials: A Personal History of Jews in the South
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this classic portrait of Jews in the South, Eli N. Evans takes readers inside the nexus of southern and Jewish histories, from the earliest immigrants to the present day. Evoking the rhythms and heartbeat of Jewish life in the Bible belt, Evans weaves together chapters of recollections from his youth and early years in North Carolina with chapters that explore the experiences of Jews in cities and small towns across the South. He presents the stories of communities, individuals, and events in this quintessential American landscape that reveal the deeply intertwined strands of what he calls a unique "Southern Jewish consciousness." First published in 1973 and updated in 1997, "The Provincials" was the first book to take readers on a journey into the soul of the Jewish South, using autobiography, storytelling, and interpretive history to create a complete portrait of Jewish contributions to the history of the region. No other book on this subject combines elements of both memoir and history in such a compelling way. This new edition includes a gallery of more than two dozen family and historical photographs as well as a new introduction by the author.
