Size Exclusion Chromatography

Product : Size Exclusion Chromatography
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Although size exclusion chromatography (SEC) is perhaps the most popular and widely used technique for determining the molecular weight distribution of polymeric materials, there have been very few texts written on this topic. During the past decade, SEC has experienced a considerable amount of growth in regard to column and detector technology and new applications. With these advances, SEC can now be used for determining absolute molecular weight, polymer chain conformation and size, and branching, as well as polymer solution properties. This book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of SEC with emphasis on practical aspects of the technique, such as column and mobile selection, calibration, new detector capabilities and guidelines for performing SEC on most types of polymers, especially those of industrial importance. This book is intended for either those new to the field of SEC, or for those research workers who require a more comprehensive background.

Josep Lluís Sert:  Joan Miró Foundation: Museum Buliding Guides

Product : Josep Lluís Sert: Joan Miró Foundation: Museum Buliding Guides
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The Joan Miró Foundation opened in 1975, becoming Barcelona''s first public institution to focus entirely on contemporary art. The architect Josep Lluís Sert designed the Foundation''s building with clean, airy white shapes of curves and corners and multiple skylights, creating a decidedly Mediterranean-flavored complex arranged around a central patio, with expansive roof terraces above. (Two subsequent expansions to the building were designed by Jaume Freixa, a pupil and longtime colleague of Sert''s.) After the first major retrospective of Miró''s work occurred in Barcelona in 1968, the artist decided to set up a building to make his work and the work of other contemporary artists permanently accessible to the public. To design the foundation''s home, he tapped his old friend Sert, a pioneer in the introduction of modern architecture in Catalonia, who had first met Miró in 1932 and worked with him on the Spanish (Republican) Pavilion at the Paris World Fair in 1937. This volume, one of a series of monographs on new museum architecture, provides a careful look at the design of one of Europe''s premier art institutions, and includes an interview with the architects responsible for the recent expansions.

Infancia de jesus

Product : Infancia de jesus
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Tras cruzar el océano, un hombre y un niño llegan a un nuevo país donde se les asigna nombre y edad, y se les anima a olvidar su pasado. Extraños en una tierra extraña, aprenden español, el idioma del lugar, mientras aguardan a ser trasladados a la ciudad de Novilla, donde tienen la esperanza de encontrar a la madre del niño.  Ya con sus nuevos nombres, Simón y David llegan al centro de reubicación de la ciudad. Allí, el funcionariado los trata con educación, pero no son muy serviciales. Tras mucha confusión, Simón consigue un alojamiento para ambos, y encuentra un trabajo en el puerto. Las tareas de estibador le resultan tremendamente agotadoras, pero enseguida se gana el aprecio de sus compañeros, que durante los descansos mantienen diálogos filosóficos sobre la dignidad del trabajo.  En este país nadie parece particularmente feliz o infeliz. Todos cumplen sus funciones, pero no van más allá y no parecen esperar ni querer más de lo que tienen. En medio de la extrañeza que le produce esta actitud, Simón decide retomar la misión de encontrar a la madre del niño, con una dificultad añadida: todos los que llegan al nuevo país parecen haber dejado atrás sus recuerdos. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The Good Story is a fascinating dialogue about psychotherapy and the art of storytelling between a writer with a long-standing interest in moral psychology and a psychotherapist with training in literary studies. Coetzee and Kurtz consider psychotherapy and its wider social context from different perspectives, but at the heart of both of their approaches is a concern with narrative. Working alone, the writer is in control of the story he or she tells. The therapist, on the other hand, collaborates with the patient in developing an account of the patient''s life and identity that is both meaningful and true. In a meeting of minds that is illuminating and thought-provoking, the authors discuss both individual psychology and the psychology of the group: the school classroom, gangs and the settler nation, in which the brutal deeds of ancestors are accommodated into a national story. Drawing on great writers like Cervantes and Dostoevsky and psychoanalysts like Freud and Melanie Klein, Coetzee and Kurtz explore the human capacity for self-examination, our wish to tell our own life stories and the resistances we encounter along the way.

Description : Francisco Díaz de León (1897-1975) looms large over the history of modern Mexican art: an outstanding engraver, illustrator, book designer, photographer, professor, founder of the Open-Air Painting School in Tlalpan and director of the School of Book Arts, the energy he brought to all of these activities has influenced several generations of Mexican artists. As a printmaker, Díaz de León''s style married a bold modernist graphic pop with warmth and intimacy of lineation, and he developed this style across a vast body of work, comprising some 1,500 printworks. This monograph paints a general panorama of Díaz de León''s output and career, and presents for the first time his hitherto little-known work as a photographer, as well as spreads from the many books he illustrated, previously unpublished writings and of course a wide sampling of his much-loved works in printmaking.

Taken from 1998 to 2012, Cuba offers a series of poignant interiors that display the changing fortunes of the country over its five-hundred-year history, with portraits and landscapes that hint at changes coming to this island nation. Originally published as Inside Havana in 2002 to wide acclaim, this new version expands that book with a reconfigured layout, finer and larger reproductions, older photographs never before seen or published, as well as new work made specifically for this edition. One of the themes introduced in this version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes versus the great, unspoiled beauty of the island''s nature itself. It is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing in remarkable riches.

Lough Neagh: The Ecology of a Multipurpose Water Resource

Product : Lough Neagh: The Ecology of a Multipurpose Water Resource
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Lough Neagh is the largest lake in the British Isles. It covers an area of 383 km2 being 30 km along its longest axis. From pre-historic times the lake and its rivers influenced the settlements of man in the role of a fishery and communication link with the interior of Ireland. Ireland''s first canal, completed in 1787, linked the small but significant coal deposits of Tyrone to Dublin by way of the lough and later the Lagen Canal became an important commercial route to the new city of Belfast. Today, only sand barge transport persists but the lough supports Europe''s largest eel fishery and provides commercial salmon, trout and perch catches, besides acting as an important centre for recreational pursuits. Increasingly it has become the major water resource for Northern Ireland supplying much of the demand for the heavily populated Belfast area. Biologically the lough is rich, sustaining enormous invertebrate populations of, for example, chironomids and gammarids alongside the comparatively exotic glacial relict, Mysis relicta. Its bird life makes the lough an area of very special conservation interest as a Ramsar site. The book describes the basic ecology of the lough with particular emphasis on both the interaction of the physical, chemical and biological components and the role of ecology in resource management. Extensive recent researches are set in geological, geographical and historical context and together with palaeolimnological studies of the sediments are used to trace major changes in the ecology of the lough under man''s influence, especially in the past 100 years.

Academic Units in a Complex, Changing World: Adaptation and Resistance

Product : Academic Units in a Complex, Changing World: Adaptation and Resistance
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book uses case studies of academic units from Australian public universities to explore the reasons why those units respond in different ways to similar contemporary challenges. The ''academic units''-departments, schools and faculties-in the world''s public universities may be their own administrative fiefdoms, but the wider environment within which they operate is both complex and dynamic. In fact, today''s academic landscape is barely recognizable from what it was like two decades ago. The globalization of higher education markets for students, faculty and research funding has expanded the challenges and opportunities for academic units beyond the boundaries of nation states. However, academic units must also deal with the diverse needs and expectations of national and local stakeholders, as well as operate within government regulatory and policy frameworks. In addition, they are required to adhere to policy and operational directives from institutional executives and consider the often-competing needs and expectations of other stakeholders such as faculty, students, employers, funding bodies and professional associations. As public funding slowly evaporates some university faculties have embraced the imperative to be more business-oriented. Others have shrunk from congress with Mammon.The milieu of tertiary education is having to adapt to fresh trends in this domain, such as the advocacy of marketization, entrepreneurialism and corporatization, the three pillars of so-called ''new public management''. With its case studies from different academic disciplines and types of university, this book asks some key questions: Why do some units adapt to environmental challenges and others resist change? How and why do academic units adopt different modes and processes of adaptation or resistance? Along with its new conceptual framework for the wider context, the text makes an important contribution to scholarship on leading and managing change in universities, while at the same time offering those in academic leadership positions relevant advice and practical suggestions to guide their units through these complex challenges. Where other academic studies have examined the university as an institution in its entirety, this focused study compares the decision-making on a lower rung of the administrative ladder.

Animals and Humans: Recurrent Symbiosis In Archaeology And Old Norse Religion

Product : Animals and Humans: Recurrent Symbiosis In Archaeology And Old Norse Religion
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Exploring the relationship between animals and humans in Scandinavia from the Roman Iron Age to the Viking Period, this book interprets Old Norse mythology—in which imaginary creatures with strong characters were invented—and examines the importance of animals in the human world. According to Old Norse perceptions, real and fantasy animals in Midgard became mouthpieces for human characteristics and reflections of people’s social position. With the aid of animals, humans could also show who they really were as well as control higher powers. Combining results from archaeology and Old Norse texts, this account discusses the functional, symbolic, and cognitive meanings of animals and the implications of animal rights.

Supplemental Ways For Improving International Stability 1998

Product : Supplemental Ways For Improving International Stability 1998
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Over recent years, a number of people actively involved in engineering, but also in other fields, have worked on the topic of international stability. Workshops have been held in various places and organized by different people and institutions.This conference, the sixth event in the SWIIS series, continued the tradition set in the earlier five SWIIS meetings. The goal was the beneficial application of systems engineering methods onto description of conditions, in which nations or groups interact with one another. Scientists from other fields such as political science, economics, social science, and international studies also had a platform to present and discuss their ideas.In the technical program of this conference, 2 survey papers and 19 regular papers - grouped into 8 sessions - were presented. Papers were given in the following areas: Methodological analysis; Investigation of development: stability, sustainable development; Modelling of stability; Application of control principles to international stability; International policy co-operation; Cultural and educational aspects in international stability; East/West/North/South relationships; Global development - regional impact; and Negotiation and mediation in conflict.

On-line Fault Detection And Supervision In The Chemical Process Industries 1998

Product : On-line Fault Detection And Supervision In The Chemical Process Industries 1998
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The field of On-Line Fault Detection and Supervision in the Chemical Process Industries is relatively young. Major activity in this area has taken place only in the last fifteen years. The goals of the first workshop in Delaware were to discuss various methodologies necessary for solving industrial problems in fault diagnosis/supervision and to encourage interactions between academia and industry. This workshop also focused on development and evaluation of methodologies for on-line fault detection and supervision in the chemical process industries. It addressed theory, application, validation, performance and evaluation of methodologies such as parameter estimation, observers, parity equations, signal analysis methods, classification, rule-based systems with probabilistic approaches, fuzzy logic and neural networks.There are several trends that make the topic of this workshop especially relevant in today''s world. The first is the tremendous advances made in automation and information technology that can potentially bring in an ever-increasing amount of information on to computer screens in the operating room of a plant. Avoiding problems of information overload and converting plant data to on-line useful knowledge is a key challenge. In some respects, one can draw parallels here to biological evolution where, over billions of years, human beings have evolved mental models to interpret the huge amount of information received through their senses. In the absence of the time advantage that evolution has had, we have to rely on methodologies such as those presented in this workshop to provide assistance to operators and engineers in interpreting plant information.A second trend that makes this field relevant in today''s world is the increasing emphasis on environment and safety. Community activism and accidents such as those in Bhopal, India have caused media spotlights to be turned on the smallest of toxic releases or loss of life due to chemical accidents. The negative publicity generated by such events as well as the need to maintain the image of an environmentally conscious company make industry more sensitive to the issues of early detection of faults.The third trend that makes this field very relevant is that of the globalization of the world economy. Increasing globalization of the chemical process industry puts pressure on economic competitiveness and higher productivity. This implies reduced down-time due to faults, quick and flexible response of production to supply and demand changes, increasing reliance on automation and reduced personnel.

Underneath The Bragg Peaks: Structural Analysis Of Complex Materials

Product : Underneath The Bragg Peaks: Structural Analysis Of Complex Materials
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book focuses on the structural determination of crystalline solids with extensive disorder. Well-established methods exist for characterizing the structure of fully crystalline solids or fully disordered materials such as liquids and glasses, but there is a dearth of techniques for the cases in-between, crystalline solids with internal atomic and nanometer scale disorder. Egami and Billinge discuss how to fill the gap using modern tools of structural characterization. This problem is encountered in the structural characterization of a surprisingly wide range of complex materials of interest to modern technology and is becoming increasingly important.Takeshi Egami received the 2003 Eugene Bertram Warren Diffraction Physics Award for the work described in the book.The authors received 2010 J. D. Hanawalt Award from the International Union of Crystallography largely based on the success of this book.Introduces a unique method to study the atomic structure of nanomaterialsLays out the basic theory and methods of this important emerging techniqueThe first edition is considered the seminal text on the subject

Personality Judgment: A Realistic Approach To Person Perception

Product : Personality Judgment: A Realistic Approach To Person Perception
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Accuracy in judging personality is important in clinical assessment, applied settings, and everyday life. Personality judgments are important in assessing job candidates, choosing friends, and determining who we can trust and rely on in our personal lives. Thus, the accuracy of those judgments is important to both individuals and organizations.In examining personality judgment,Personality Judgmenttakes a sweeping look at the field''s history, assumptions, and current research findings. The book explores the construct of traits within the person-situation debate, defends the human judge in the face of the fundamental attribution error, and discusses research on four categories of moderators in judgment: the good judge, the judgeable target, the trait being judged, and the information on which the judgment is based.Spanning two decades of accuracy research, this book makes clear not only how personality judgment has come to its current standing but also where it may move in the future.Covers 20 years worth of historical, current and future trends in personality judgmentIncludes discussions of debatable issues related to accuracy and error. The author is well known for his recently developed theoy of the process by which one person may render an accurate judgment of the personality traits of another

Sound And Structural Vibration: Radiation, Transmission and Response

Product : Sound And Structural Vibration: Radiation, Transmission and Response
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The first edition ofSound and Structural Vibrationwas written in the early 1980s. Since then, two major developments have taken place in the field of vibroacoustics. Powerful computational methods and procedures for the numerical analysis of structural vibration, acoustical fields and acoustical interactions between fluids and structures have been developed and these are now universally employed by researchers, consultants and industrial organisations. Advances in signal processing systems and algorithms, in transducers, and in structural materials and forms of construction, have facilitated the development of practical means of applying active and adaptive control systems to structures for the purposes of reducing or modifying structural vibration and the associated sound radiation and transmission.In this greatly expanded and extensively revised edition, the authors have retained most of the analytically based material that forms the pedagogical content of the first edition, and have expanded it to present the theoretical foundations of modern numerical analysis. Application of the latter is illustrated by examples that have been chosen to complement the analytical approaches to solving fairly simple problems of sound radiation, transmission and fluid-structural coupling that are presented in the first edition. The number of examples of experimental data that relate to the theoretical content, and illustrate important features of vibroacoustic interaction, has been augmented by the inclusion of a selection from the vast amount of material published during the past twenty five years. The final chapter on the active control of sound and vibration has no precursor in the first edition.Covers theoretical approaches to modeling and analysisHighly applicable to challenges in industry and academiaFor engineering students to use throughout their career

Workplace Communications: The Basics, Mla Update

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For courses in Professional Communication and Workplace Writing. This version of The Curious Writer has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* After teaching a course to college students pursuing trade careers, George Searles realized his students needed a book that focused on practical applications, rather than theory—and that explored workplace communication in a user-friendly tone. Workplace Communications: The Basics takes a down-to-earth approach to writing and communicating on the job, teaching the essentials in an accessible style appropriate for any student or course. The clear, concise nature of the book meets the needs of not only its originally intended audience, but the needs of students taking technical communication at a wide range of institutions for any major as well. The Seventh Edition retains and enhances the text’s pedagogical aids, rich examples, and practical exercises, preparing students to communicate successfully in any workplace environment. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

The Bilingual Courtroom: Court Interpreters In The Judicial Process, Second Edition

Product : The Bilingual Courtroom: Court Interpreters In The Judicial Process, Second Edition
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Susan Berk-Seligson’s groundbreaking book draws on more than one hundred hours of audio recordings of Spanish/English court proceedings in federal, state, and municipal courts—along with a number of psycholinguistic experiments involving mock juror reactions to interpreted testimony—to present a systematic study of court interpreters that raises some alarming, vitally important  concerns. Contrary to the assumption that interpreters do not affect the dynamics of court proceedings, Berk-Seligson shows that interpreters could potentially make the difference between a defendant being found guilty or not guilty of a crime. This second edition of the The Bilingual Courtroom includes a fully updated review of both theoretical and policy-oriented research relevant to the use of interpreters in legal settings, particularly from the standpoint of linguistic pragmatics. It provides new insights into interpreting in quasi-judicial, informal, and specialized judicial settings, such as small claims court, jails, and prisons; updates trends in interpreter certification and credentialing, both in the United States and abroad; explores remote interpreting (for example, by telephone) and interpreter training programs; looks at political trials and tribunals to add to our awareness of international perspectives on court interpreting; and expands upon cross-cultural issues. Also featuring a new preface by Berk-Seligson, this second edition not only highlights the impact of the previous versions of The Bilingual Courtroom, but also draws attention to the continued need for critical study of interpreting in our ever diversifying society.

Product : Princess Margaret
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : One of the most controversial royal figures of the twentieth century, Princess Margaret was admired as well as vilified for most of her adult life. Described by the designer and hotelier, Anouska Hempel, as Witty, wicked and wonderful, this charismatic Princess not only brought colour and sex appeal into the Royal Family, but did much to help bring the monarchy and its attitudes into the modern world.Adored younger daughter of King George VI and only sister of Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret was a pre-war princess whose world was hugely circumscribed by the strictures and protocol of another age, leading to conflict and misunderstanding in both her private and public life.In his biography, Princess Margaret: A Life of Contrasts, Christopher Warwick redresses the balance. Whilst giving the full, insider story of the Princess''s many love affairs, he also looks at her tireless work for charity, breaking many taboos along the way - Princess Margaret, not Diana, was the first Royal to champion HIV and AIDS awareness.

The Economics Of International Development: Foreign Aid Versus Freedom For The World's Poor 2016

Product : The Economics Of International Development: Foreign Aid Versus Freedom For The World's Poor 2016
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Foreign aid and overseas military intervention have been important and controversial political topics for over a decade. The government''s controversial target to spend 0.7 per cent of national income on foreign aid has been widely welcomed by some, but strongly criticised by others. Furthermore, the controversy of the Iraq war rumbles on, even today. This is all happening amongst much instability in many parts of the world. In this short book, a number of authors challenge the assumption that we can bring about economic development and promote liberal democracies through direct foreign intervention - whether economic or military intervention. The lead author, William Easterly, drawing on his wide experience at the World Bank and as an academic, is a renowned sceptic of intervention. He points out that solutions proposed now to the problem of poverty are identical to solutions proposed decades ago - but the plans of rich governments simply do not successfully transform poor countries. Academics Abigail Hall-Blanco and Christian Bjornskov add further context and put forward empirical evidence that backs up Easterly''s argument. Syvlie Aboa-Bradwell draws upon her own practical experience to give examples of how people in poor countries can be assisted to promote their own development. This book is essential reading for students, teachers and all interested in better understanding how to help - and how not to help - the world''s most disadvantaged peoples.

Phantasmal Media: An Approach To Imagination, Computation, And Expression

Product : Phantasmal Media: An Approach To Imagination, Computation, And Expression
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In Phantasmal Media, D. Fox Harrell considers the expressive power of computational media. He argues, forcefully and persuasively, that the great expressive potential of computational media comes from the ability to construct and reveal phantasms -- blends of cultural ideas and sensory imagination. These ubiquitous and often-unseen phantasms -- cognitive phenomena that include sense of self, metaphors, social categories, narrative, and poetic thinking -- influence almost all our everyday experiences. Harrell offers an approach for understanding and designing computational systems that have the power to evoke these phantasms, paying special attention to the exposure of oppressive phantasms and the creation of empowering ones. He argues for the importance of cultural content, diverse worldviews, and social values in computing. The expressive power of phantasms is not purely aesthetic, he contends; phantasmal media can express and construct the types of meaning central to the human condition.Harrell discusses, among other topics, the phantasm as an orienting perspective for developers; expressive epistemologies, or data structures based on subjective human worldviews; morphic semiotics (building on the computer scientist Joseph Goguen''s theory of algebraic semiotics); cultural phantasms that influence consensus and reveal other perspectives; computing systems based on cultural models; interaction and expression; and the ways that real-world information is mapped onto, and instantiated by, computational data structures.The concept of phantasmal media, Harrell argues, offers new possibilities for using the computer to understand and improve the human condition through the human capacity to imagine.

Dreamworld and Catastrophe: The Passing of Mass Utopia in East and West

Product : Dreamworld and Catastrophe: The Passing of Mass Utopia in East and West
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The dream of the twentieth century was the construction of mass utopia. As the century closes, this dream is being left behind; the belief that industrial modernization can bring about the good society by overcoming material scarcity for all has been challenged by the disintegration of European socialism, capitalist restructuring, and ecological constraints. The larger social vision has given way to private dreams of material happiness and to political cynicism.Developing the notion of dreamworld as both a poetic description of a collective mental state and an analytical concept, Susan Buck-Morss attempts to come to terms with mass dreamworlds at the moment of their passing. She shows how dreamworlds became dangerous when their energy was used by the structures of power as an instrument of force against the masses. Stressing the similarities between the East and West and using the end of the Cold War as her point of departure, she examines both extremes of mass utopia, dreamworld and catastrophe.The book is in four parts. Dreamworlds of Democracy asks whether collective sovereignty can ever be democratic. Dreamworlds of History calls for a rethinking of revolution by political and artistic avant-gardes. Dreamworlds of Mass Culture explores the affinities between mass culture''s socialist and capitalist forms. An Afterward places the book in the historical context of the author''s collaboration with a group of Moscow philosophers and artists over the past two tumultuous decades. The book is an experiment in visual culture, using images as philosophy, presenting, literally, a way of seeing the past. Its pictorial narratives rescue historical data that with the end of the Cold War are threatened with oblivion and challenge common conceptions of what this century was all about.

A Framework For The Good

Product : A Framework For The Good
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book provides an ethical framework for understanding the good and how we can experience it in increasing measure. In Part 1, Kevin Kinghorn offers a formal analysis of the meaning of the term "good," the nature of goodness, and why we are motivated to pursue it. Setting this analysis within a larger ethical framework, Kinghorn proposes a way of understanding where noninstrumental value lies, the source of normativity, and the relationship between the good and the right. Kinghorn defends a welfarist conception of the good along with the view that mental states alone directly affect a person's well-being. He endorses a Humean account of motivation—in which desires alone motivate us, not moral beliefs—to explain the source of the normative pressure we feel to do the good and the right. Turning to the place of objectivity within ethics, he concludes that the concept of "objective wrongness" is a misguided one, although a robust account of "objective goodness" is still possible.  In Part 2, Kinghorn shifts to a substantive, Christian account of what the good life consists in as well as how we can achieve it. Hume's emphasis of desire over reason is not challenged but rather endorsed as a way of understanding both the human capacity for choice and the means by which God prompts us to pursue relationships of benevolence, in which our ultimate flourishing consists. This original, carefully argued book will interest scholars and graduate students in moral philosophy and philosophy of religion.   "This is a terrific work, in many respects. It is ambitious, clear, engaging, and energetic. The better part of the second half of the book makes some original, positive moves in thinking about values from the standpoint of Christian theism. The material is nuanced, well-illustrated with analogies and thought experiments." —Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College

Category : Books>Family and Relationships
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards increased communication among members of the adoption triad. Although many adoption agencies are moving towards increased information sharing, there is little research evidence available concerning the consequences of this practice. This unique study investigates the consequences of openness in adoption, as practiced by several adoption agencies. Seventeen adoptive families and their corresponding birth parents were interviewed. The effects of the open adoption procedures on family life and attitudes were assessed. Included are a review of the literature on openness in adoption; a review of relevant theoretical perspectives; a discussion of agency practices; and a description of strengths and weaknesses of current research methods.

Stumbling Giant: The Threats To China's Future

Product : Stumbling Giant: The Threats To China's Future
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Can anything prevent China surpassing the United States and becoming the world’s superpower? While dozens of recent books and articles have predicted the near-certainty of China’s rise to global supremacy, this book boldly counters such widely-held assumptions. Timothy Beardson brings to light the daunting array of challenges that today confront China, as well as the inadequacy of the policy responses. Threats to China come on many fronts, Beardson shows, and by their number and sheer weight these problems will thwart any ambition to become the world’s “Number One power.” Drawing on extensive research and experience living and working in Asia over the last 35 years, the author spells out China’s situation: an inexorable demographic future of a shrinking labor force, relentless aging, extreme gender disparity, and even a falling population. Also, the nation faces social instability, a devastated environment, a predominantly low-tech economy with inadequate innovation, the absence of an effective welfare safety net, an ossified governance structure, and radical Islam lurking at the borders. Beardson’s nuanced, first-hand look at China acknowledges its historic achievements while tempering predictions of its imminent hegemony with a no-nonsense dose of reality.

Planning Democracy: Agrarian Intellectuals And The Intended New Deal

Product : Planning Democracy: Agrarian Intellectuals And The Intended New Deal
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Late in the 1930s, the U.S. Department of Agriculture set up a national network of local organizations that joined farmers with public administrators, adult-educators, and social scientists. The aim was to localize and unify earlier New Deal programs concerning soil conservation, farm production control, tenure security, and other reforms, and by 1941 some 200,000 farm people were involved. Even so, conservative anti–New Dealers killed the successful program the next year. This book reexamines the era’s agricultural policy and tells the neglected story of the New Deal agrarian leaders and their visionary ideas about land, democratization, and progressive social change.

The Racial Glass Ceiling: Subordination In American Law And Culture

Product : The Racial Glass Ceiling: Subordination In American Law And Culture
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : A compelling study of a subtle and insidious form of racial inequality in American law and culture. Why does racial equality continue to elude African Americans even after the election of a black president? Liberals blame white racism while conservatives blame black behavior. Both define the race problem in socioeconomic terms, mainly citing jobs, education, and policing. Roy Brooks, a distinguished legal scholar, argues that the reality is more complex. He defines the race problem African Americans face today as a three-headed hydra involving socioeconomic, judicial, and cultural conditions. Focusing on law and culture, Brooks defines the problem largely as racial subordination—“the act of impeding racial progress in pursuit of nonracist interests.” Racial subordination is little understood and underacknowledged, yet it produces devastating and even deadly racial consequences that affect both poor and socioeconomically successful African Americans. Brooks addresses a serious problem, in many ways more dangerous than overt racism, and offers a well-reasoned solution that draws upon the strongest virtues America has exhibited to the world.
