Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Fiction
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he''d seen it all. But he''s never met a cricket before, which really isn''t surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York City-the Times Square subway station. Chester Cricket never intended to leave his Connecticut meadow. He''d be there still if he hadn''t followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someone''s picnic basket. Now, like any tourist in the city, he wants to look around. And he could not have found two better guides-and friends-than Tucker and Harry. The trio have many adventures-from taking in the sights and sounds of Broadway to escaping a smoky fire. Chester makes a third friend, too. It is a boy, Mario, who rescues Chester from a dusty corner of the subway station and brings him to live in the safety of his parents'' newsstand. He hopes at first to keep Chester as a pet, but Mario soon understands that the cricket is more than that. Because Chester has a hidden talent and no one-not even Chester himself-realizes that the little country cricket may just be able to teach even the toughest New Yorkers a thing or two.Spanish language edition.

Family Life: A Novel

Product : Family Life: A Novel
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Fiction>Literary
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Hailed as a supreme storyteller (Philadelphia Inquirer) for his cunning, dismaying and beautifully conceived fiction (New York Times), Akhil Sharma is possessed of a narrative voice as hypnotic as those found in the pages of Dostoyevsky (The Nation). In his highly anticipated second novel, Family Life, he delivers a story of astonishing intensity and emotional precision. We meet the Mishra family in Delhi in 1978, where eight-year-old Ajay and his older brother Birju play cricket in the streets, waiting for the day when their plane tickets will arrive and they and their mother can fly across the world and join their father in America. America to the Mishras is, indeed, everything they could have imagined and more: when automatic glass doors open before them, they feel that surely they must have been mistaken for somebody important. Pressing an elevator button and the elevator closing its doors and rising, they have a feeling of power at the fact that the elevator is obeying them. Life is extraordinary until tragedy strikes, leaving one brother severely brain-damaged and the other lost and virtually orphaned in a strange land. Ajay, the family’s younger son, prays to a God he envisions as Superman, longing to find his place amid the ruins of his family’s new life. Heart-wrenching and darkly funny, Family Life is a universal story of a boy torn between duty and his own survival.

T.s. Eliot's Civilized Savage: Religious Eroticism And Poetics

Product : T.s. Eliot's Civilized Savage: Religious Eroticism And Poetics
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : T. S. Eliot''sCivilized Savagerevisits this poet''s drafts and canonical poetry in a sometimes dismissive critical arena . While contemporary readers emphasize Eliot''s charged personal life, his anti-Semitism, his political conservatism, and his misogyny, Laurie MacDiarmid argues that although Eliot''s poetics are shaped by private fears and fantasies, in many ways these are the ghosts of a culture that accepts and celebrates him.Comparing early versions with finished poems, this book explores the development and ramifications of Eliot''s ''impersonal'' poetic without losing sight of his influential, haunting work. Examining Eliot''s neurotic relationship with women and his escape into women and his escape into spirituality, this book observes how Eliot conceived and eroticized poetry of worship and a poetic that dictated a sacrificial relationship to a savage God.

Phenomenology, Uncertainty, And Care In The Therapeutic Encounter

Product : Phenomenology, Uncertainty, And Care In The Therapeutic Encounter
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Phenomenology, Uncertainty and Care in the Therapeutic Encounter is the latest in a series of books where Mark Leffert explores the therapeutic encounter as both process and situation; looking for evidence of therapeutic effectiveness rather than accepting existing psychoanalytic conceptsof theory or curewithout question.Mark Leffertfocuses on the uncomfortable fact that analysts and therapists can and do make many mistaken assumptions and false moves within their clinical practice, and that there is a tendency to ignore the significant levels of uncertainty in what they do. Beginning with a discussion of the phenomenology of the self and its relations with the world, the book moves on to ¿explore the notion that interdisciplinary discourse both opens up possibilities in the therapeutic encounter but also imposes healthy constraints on what can be thought or theorized about psychoanalytically.Phenomenology, Uncertainty and Care in the Therapeutic Encountercontributes a new understanding of familiar material and brings a new focus to the care-giving and healing aspects of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy leading to a shift in the analyst¿s identity from that of one who analyses to one who cares for and heals. This book will be of interest toPsychoanalysts and psychotherapists, neuroscientists and academics in the fields of psychiatry, comparative literature and literature and the mind.

This time, the murders of two African Americans, a little girl and an old woman, bear all the signs of a serial killer for Lindsay Boxer, newly promoted to lieutenant of San Francisco''s homicide squad. But there''s an odd detail she finds even more disturbing: both victims were related to city cops. A symbol glimpsed at both murder scenes leads to a racist hate group, but the taunting killer strikes again and again, leaving deliberate clues and eluding the police ever more cleverly. In the meantime, each of the women has a personal stake at risk--and the killer knows who they are.

Parodies of Ownership: Hip-Hop Aesthetics and Intellectual Property Law

Product : Parodies of Ownership: Hip-Hop Aesthetics and Intellectual Property Law
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Richard Schur offers a provocative view of contemporary African American cultural politics and the relationship between African American cultural production and intellectual property law.---Mark Anthony Neal, Duke UniversityWhites used to own blacks. Now, they accomplish much the same thing by insisting that they ''own'' ownership. Blacks shouldn''t let them. A culture that makes all artists play by its rules will end up controlling new ideas and stifling change. Richard Schur''s fine book explains why.---Richard Delgado, Seattle UniversityWhat is the relationship between hip-hop and African American culture in the post--Civil Rights era? Does hip-hop share a criticism of American culture or stand as an isolated and unique phenomenon? How have African American texts responded to the increasing role intellectual property law plays in regulating images, sounds, words, and logos? Parodies of Ownership examines how contemporary African American writers, artists, and musicians have developed an artistic form that Schur terms hip-hop aesthetics. This book offers an in-depth examination of a wide range of contemporary African American painters and writers, including Anna Deavere Smith, Toni Morrison, Adrian Piper, Colson Whitehead, Michael Ray Charles, Alice Randall, and Fred Wilson. Their absence from conversations about African American culture has caused a misunderstanding about the nature of contemporary cultural issues and resulted in neglect of their innovative responses to the post--Civil Rights era. By considering their work as a cross-disciplinary and specifically African American cultural movement, Schur shows how a new paradigm for artistic creation has developed.Parodies of Ownership offers a broad analysis of post--Civil Rights era culture and provides the necessary context for understanding contemporary debates within American studies, African American studies, intellectual property law, African American literature, art history, and hip-hop studies. Weaving together law, literature, art, and music, Schur deftly clarifies the conceptual issues that unify contemporary African American culture, empowering this generation of artists, writers, and musicians to criticize how racism continues to affect our country.Richard L. Schur is Director, Interdisciplinary Studies Center, and Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Drury University.

Movies, Censorship, And The Law

Product : Movies, Censorship, And The Law
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Who decides what movies we should see? In some of the nation''s largest cities motion pictures are screened by review boards meeting in secret. Their files are seldom open to inspection, and they often wield a nearly absolute power over what the public is shown. This is the story of motion-picture censorship in America. It begins in 1915 when the Supreme Court denied freedom of the press to movies. In a fast-moving account of court cases and behind-the-scenes skirmishes, Ira Carmen follows the history of movie censorship to the present day. He shows how very recent court decisions reflect new thinking on censorship and the nature of obscenity. Today, forty-seven states and countless cities and towns have obscenity laws on their statute books. Are the censors stout guardians of the public morality . . . or witch-hunters? In a series of dramatic interviews with film censors in major cities, Carmen captures the flavor of the struggle between censor and exhibitor. The interviews reveal how censors think—what kinds of films they suppress and for what reasons, how they feel about foreign films as opposed to American, how they are influenced by court decisions, and how well they abide by those decisions. This pioneering book reveals what effect court decisions really have at the grassroots level. It examines the role of the constitution in the censorship debate and asks how effective the American political and judicial systems have been in coping with the problem. Finally, it offers a challenging analysis of what kind of censorship, if any, is needed in a free society.

World Of Art Series Black Art 2e: A Cultural History

Product : World Of Art Series Black Art 2e: A Cultural History
Category : Books>Home and Garden
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The African diaspora—a direct result of the transatlantic slave trade and Western colonialism—generated a wide array of artistic achievements in the past century, from blues to reggae, from the paintings of Henry Ossawa Tanner to the video installations of Keith Piper. Richard Powell''s study concentrates on the works of art themselves and on how these works, created during a time of major social upheaval and transformation, use black culture as both subject and context. From musings on the the souls of black folk in early twentieth-century painting, sculpture, and photography to questions of racial and cultural identities in performance, media, and computer-assisted arts in the 1990s, the book draws on the works of hundreds of artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Lois Mailou Jones, Wifredo Lam, Jacob Lawrence, Spike Lee, Archibald Motley, Jr., Faith Ringgold, and Gerard Sekoto. This revised edition includes expanded coverage of video art and a new chapter that discusses work by a number of artists who have newly risen to prominence, such as Chris Ofili, Kara Walker, and Renée Cox. Biographies of more than 170 key artists provide a unique art-historical reference. Placing its emphasis on black cultural themes rather than on black racial identity, this groundbreaking book is an important exploration of the visual representations of black culture throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first.

Beliefs in Action: Economic Philosophy and Social Change

Product : Beliefs in Action: Economic Philosophy and Social Change
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book is concerned with the role of economic philosophy (ideas) in the processes of belief-formation and social change. Its aim is to further our understanding of the behavior of the individual economic agent by bringing to light and examining the function of non-rational dispositions and motivations (passions) in the determination of the agent''s beliefs and goals. Drawing on the work of David Hume and Adam Smith, the book spells out the particular ways in which the passions come to affect our ordinary understanding and conduct in practical affairs and the intergenerational and interpersonal transmission of ideas through language. Concern with these problems, it is argued, lies at the heart of an important tradition in the British moral philosophy. This emphasis on the non-rational nature of our belief-fixation mechanisms has important implications: it helps to clarify and qualify the misleading claims often made by utilitarian, Marxist, Keynesian, and neo-liberal economic philosophers, all of whom stress the overriding power of ideas to shape conduct, policy, and institutions.

Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Derek Jeter walks in the footsteps of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle, and became the first Yankee to reach 3,000 hits. Yet he has never been the best player in baseball. In fact, he hasn''t always been the best player on his team. But what he does have is an intangible grace that makes him the face-and the hero-of the modern Yankee dynasty, and of America''s game. In The Captain, Ian O''Connor draws on unique access to Jeter and more than 200 new interviews to reveal how a biracial kid from Michigan became New York''s most beloved sports figure and the face of the steroid-free athlete. O''Connor takes us behind the scenes of a legendary baseball life and career, from Jeter''s early struggles in the minor leagues, when homesickness and errors threatened a stillborn career, to the heady days of Yankee superiority and nightlife, to the battles with former best friend A-Rod. All along the way, Jeter has made his Hall of Fame destiny look easy. But behind that leadership and hero''s grace there are hidden struggles and complexities that have never been explored, until now.

Just Mercy: A Story Of Justice And Redemption

Product : Just Mercy: A Story Of Justice And Redemption
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : #1 New York Times Bestseller | Named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Seattle Times • Esquire • Time   Winner of the Carnegie Medal for Nonfiction | Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction | Winner of a Books for a Better Life Award | Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize | Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize | An American Library Association Notable BookA powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time   Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.   Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.   Praise for Just Mercy  “Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books   “Searing, moving . . . Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela.”—Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times   “You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”—Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review   “Inspiring . . . a work of style, substance and clarity . . . Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.”—The Washington Post   “As deeply moving, poignant and powerful a book as has been, and maybe ever can be, written about the death penalty.”—The Financial Times   “Brilliant.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer   “Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing God’s work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope. Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story.”—John Grisham   “Bryan Stevenson is one of my personal heroes, perhaps the most inspiring and influential crusader for justice alive today, and Just Mercy is extraordinary. The stories told within these pages hold the potential to transform what we think we mean when we talk about justice.”—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

1966: The Year The Decade Exploded

Product : 1966: The Year The Decade Exploded
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The pop world accelerated and broke through the sound barrier in 1966. In America, in London, in Amsterdam, in Paris, revolutionary ideas slow-cooking since the late ''50s reached boiling point. In the worlds of pop, pop art, fashion and radical politics -- often fueled by perception-enhancing substances and literature -- the ''Sixties'', as we have come to know them, hit their Modernist peak. A unique chemistry of ideas, substances, freedom of expression and dialogue across pop cultural continents created a landscape of immense and eventually shattering creativity. After 1966 nothing in the pop world would ever be the same. The 7 inch single outsold the long-player for the final time. It was the year in which the ever lasting and transient pop moment would burst forth in its most articulate, instinctive and radical way. Jon Savage''s 1966 is a monument to the year that shaped the pop future of the balance of the century. Exploring canonical artists like The Beatles, The Byrds, Velvet Underground, The Who and The Kinks, 1966 also goes much deeper into the social and cultural heart of the decade through unique archival primary sources.

Product : Stronger Than The Day Before: Finding Peace In My Mental Illness
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : MeChale Fisher-Gilmore grew up in “The Hole" in Duarte, California, a cul de sac community of twenty three families that gives true meaning to the African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” At first glance, the Fisher’s beautifully manicured lawn, rose garden, and swimming pool make passersby wish they lived there. However, once inside, you bear witness to the family’s dysfunction. Her mother Rose, a well respected member of the local Baptist church, retired school aide, and the best baker in town, struggled with alcoholism. Her father George, a hard-working, yet care-free man, never saw a horse that couldn’t win. Her older brother Ronnie, committed suicide with a gunshot wound to the head in the family driveway. Her brother Charles has battled drug and alcohol addiction for over 30 years and counting. Through it all, she has dealt with abusive relationships in her teenage years, later in marriage, and betrayal on the dating scene. A few years ago MeChale knew something terrible was going on inside her mind and body. After her first institutionalization she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Seven institutionalizations later she has come to grips with the stigma of mental illness and God has given her the strength to move forward. Her journey is the motivation for this project which she hopes will heal others facing similar family challenges and demonstrate that mental illness is not the end all, but the beginning of a new life lived differently. MeChale is an overcomer in every sense of the word and is on a mission to spread her message, “There is no shortcut to bipolar disorder, yet with God all things are possible.”

Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss: The Revolutionary Fat-Burning Diet for Peak Mental and Physical Performance and Optimum Health

Product : Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss: The Revolutionary Fat-Burning Diet for Peak Mental and Physical Performance and Optimum Health
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : In the 1980s, Robert Haas fueled a diet revolution with his number one bestseller Eat to Win. Now, with Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss, he shows you not only how to lose weight and dramatically improve your performance in all areas of life, but also how to keep the fat off--forever. Based on cutting-edge research on how and why our bodies use carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, Haas created a "Mediterrasian" diet that combines the best and healthiest aspects of diets from the regions where people live the longest. His approach features a ratio of 50 percent carbohydrates, which includes grains, fruits, and vegetables; 25 percent protein; and 25 percent fat. Haas also provides the specific reasons why this is the ultimate ratio for maximum energy, fitness, and permanent fat loss. Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss offers a remarkably flexible, healthy food plan that encourages both the use of the new "functional" foods, such as tofu hot dogs and soy-chicken nuggets, and treats that most diet plans forbid entirely, such as chocolate, wine, and coffee. In fact, Haas tells you why enjoying chocolate and coffee every day could actually make you healthier, providing both satisfaction and valuable phytonutrients that prevent illness. It''s the kind of eating plan that works for the entire family. As for exercise, Haas''s recommendation is just as simple: Burn a minimum of 300 calories--the equivalent of 45 minutes of walking--throughout the day, through any activity you choose. Haas’s combined diet and exercise program changes lives.

A Doctor of Their Own: The History of Adolescent Medicine

Product : A Doctor of Their Own: The History of Adolescent Medicine
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Parents have known since time immemorial, and social scientists have agreed since the turn of the century, that adolescents are a people unto themselves--a distinct developmental category. Yet it was not until the 1950s that a medical specialty specifically for teenagers came into being. In this book, Heather Munro Prescott shows how the mid-twentieth-century emergence of adolescent medicine resulted from a combination of social changes that reached far beyond the field of medicine--changes that placed teenagers themselves at the center of the national agenda.The first book to trace the history of adolescent medicine, A Doctor of Their Own draws on oral histories of physicians in the field, patient records from adolescent medical facilities, medical and popular advice literature, and letters from teenagers and their parents. Prescott examines the interplay between the emergence of adolescent medicine and changes in American family relationships, youth culture, popular perceptions about young people, and the social experience of adolescence. With special attention to the role of young people themselves in the shaping of this new discipline, her book follows the development of adolescent medicine from its origins in the work of J. Roswell Gallagher at Boston Children''s Hospital in the 1950s to its uncertain prospects today, when, despite heightened recognition of their specific medical needs, most teenagers still receive inadequate health care.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : If you want to know the truth... Sometimes I''m not sure who I am anymore. Thirteen. It''s an age of wonder...or dread. The best year of your life...or maybe the worst ever. You''ve just become an official teenager, even though you''re not quite sure you feel like one, but you''re no longer a kid, either. Here, from fourteen different points of view, are stories about that wonderful, terrible time. The big bar mitzvah that goes suddenly, wildly, hilariously out of control. A first kiss -- and a realization about one''s sexual orientation. A crush on a girl that ends up putting the boy who likes her in the hospital. A pair of sneakers that a kid has to have, no matter what. Written by some of today''s finest writers for young adults, these stories -- by turns funny and sad, wrenching and moving -- truly capture the agony and ecstasy of being thirteen.

American Pulp: How Paperbacks Brought Modernism to Main Street

Product : American Pulp: How Paperbacks Brought Modernism to Main Street
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : There is real hope for a culture that makes it as easy to buy a book as it does a pack of cigarettes.-a civic leader quoted in a New American Library ad (1951)American Pulp tells the story of the midcentury golden age of pulp paperbacks and how they brought modernism to Main Street, democratized literature and ideas, spurred social mobility, and helped readers fashion new identities. Drawing on extensive original research, Paula Rabinowitz unearths the far-reaching political, social, and aesthetic impact of the pulps between the late 1930s and early 1960s.Published in vast numbers of titles, available everywhere, and sometimes selling in the millions, pulps were throwaway objects accessible to anyone with a quarter. Conventionally associated with romance, crime, and science fiction, the pulps in fact came in every genre and subject. American Pulp tells how these books ingeniously repackaged highbrow fiction and nonfiction for a mass audience, drawing in readers of every kind with promises of entertainment, enlightenment, and titillation. Focusing on important episodes in pulp history, Rabinowitz looks at the wide-ranging effects of free paperbacks distributed to World War II servicemen and women; how pulps prompted important censorship and First Amendment cases; how some gay women read pulp lesbian novels as how-to-dress manuals; the unlikely appearance in pulp science fiction of early representations of the Holocaust; how writers and artists appropriated pulp as a literary and visual style; and much more. Examining their often-lurid packaging as well as their content, American Pulp is richly illustrated with reproductions of dozens of pulp paperback covers, many in color.A fascinating cultural history, American Pulp will change the way we look at these ephemeral yet enduringly intriguing books.

The Seduction of Culture in German History

Product : The Seduction of Culture in German History
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : During the Allied bombing of Germany, Hitler was more distressed by the loss of cultural treasures than by the leveling of homes. Remarkably, his propagandists broadcast this fact, convinced that it would reveal not his callousness but his sensitivity: the destruction had failed to crush his artist''s spirit. It is impossible to begin to make sense of this thinking without understanding what Wolf Lepenies callsThe Seduction of Culture in German History.This fascinating and unusual book tells the story of an arguably catastrophic German habit--that of valuing cultural achievement above all else and envisioning it as a noble substitute for politics. Lepenies examines how this tendency has affected German history from the late eighteenth century to today. He argues that the German preference for art over politics is essential to understanding the peculiar nature of Nazism, including its aesthetic appeal to many Germans (and others) and the fact that Hitler and many in his circle were failed artists and intellectuals who seem to have practiced their politics as a substitute form of art.In a series of historical, intellectual, literary, and artistic vignettes told in an essayistic style full of compelling aphorisms, this wide-ranging book pays special attention to Goethe and Thomas Mann, and also contains brilliant discussions of such diverse figures as Novalis, Walt Whitman, Leo Strauss, and Allan Bloom.The Seduction of Culture in German Historyis concerned not only with Germany, but with how the German obsession with culture, sense of cultural superiority, and scorn of politics have affected its relations with other countries, France and the United States in particular.

Description : Being a politician’s wife is all about appearances, and as the spouse of Washington State’s attorney general, Marilyn McKenna was expected to be by her husband’s side through thick and thin. After decades of being morbidly obese, she chose thin – and started a weight-loss journey that would change her life. From hitting rock bottom to finding a path to recovery, Marilyn honestly describes her public life and her very private pain: her lifetime battle with food, her attempt to be the perfect wife and mother, and the breaking point that forced her to ask herself hard questions. Now, after facing her demons and losing 120 pounds, Marilyn reveals how she transformed her body and her life and shares strategies with readers who want to unleash their own hidden potential and change the trajectory of their health. Eat Like It Matters works alongside any diet or weight-loss program or as a stand-alone story that will inspire and motivate readers to find their best selves (or their “inner badass,” as Marilyn puts it) every day.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Literature is not only about aesthetics, but also almost equally about economics. The successful marketing of an author and his literary works is more dependent on the activities of cultural merchants than on the particular words and phrases found in the author''s prose. Marketing Literature and Posthumous Legacies focuses on the creation of symbolic capital for the literary legacies of Leonid Andreev and Vladimir Nabokov that was eventually exchanged by cultural merchants for financial and ideological profit. Yuri Leving and Frederick H. White discuss the ways in which certain cultural merchants created symbolic meaning for these two authors through a process of collusion, consecration, and the marketing of tangible and intangible products that lead to some sort of transaction. The promotion and maintenance of posthumous legacies involves an intricate network of personal interests that drive the preservation of literary reputations.

The Politics of Expertise in Congress: The Rise and Fall of the Office of Technology Assessment

Product : The Politics of Expertise in Congress: The Rise and Fall of the Office of Technology Assessment
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Nowhere in the U.S. government is the marriage between expertise and politics more normatively troublesome and empirically obscure than in Congress. The legislature is asked to be both expert and representative, to act on the best available information and judgment about policy problems while being responsive to, and reflective of, constituents'' demands. This book examines the relationship betweentechnical experts and elected officials, challenging the prevailing view about how experts become politicized by the policy process.Bimber presents a theory about the connections between institutional structure and the strategies of experts who participate in politics. He tests this theory by tracing the interaction between Congress and the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA), a recently abolished legislative branch agency created in 1972 to estimate the consequences of new technologies and free Congress from complete dependence on the executive branch for information and policy analysis. In addition, he provides comparative portraits of Congress''s remaining support agencies--the Congressional Budget Office, the Congressional Research Office, and the General Accounting Office--and argues that the legislative context for the politics of expertise reveals patterns that have been overlooked in studies of expert knowledge and executive-branch policymaking.

Indian Philosophy of Language: Studies in Selected Issues

Product : Indian Philosophy of Language: Studies in Selected Issues
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book examines some of the more important theories to be found in classical Indian philosophy that bear directly on current concerns in philosophy of language. The issues discussed are three: the problem of sentential unity, the sense-reference distinction, and our talk about the non-existent. In each case the author presents the views of selected Indian philosophers on the issue -- views that differ in significant ways from those that are usually considered in contemporary debates in philosophy of language. The intention throughout is to add the voices of classical Indian theorists to these contemporary debates. Thus Indian approaches to such issues as the relation of word meaning to sentence meaning and the problem of negative existentials are not only explicated but also assessed for their adequacy relative to the approaches of classical and contemporary analytic philosophers of language. No background knowledge of Indian philosophy is presupposed; the book should thus prove of interest to specialists in philosophy of language, semantics, as well as to those working in Indian and comparative philosophy.

What Robots Can and Can't Be

Product : What Robots Can and Can't Be
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : What Robots Can and Can''t Be is a self-contained, rigorous, sustained argument for the unique, two-sided position that: (side one) Al will continue to produce machines with greater and greater capacity to pass stronger and stronger versions of the Turing Test; but that (side two) the `Person Building Project'' (the attempt by cognitive engineers to build a machine which is a person) will inevitably fail. The defense of side two rests in large part on a refutation of the proposition that persons are automata -- a refutation involving an array of issues, from free will to Gödel to introspection to Searle and beyond. The defense of side one brings the reader face to face with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson as they tackle perhaps their toughest case (`Silver Blaze''); the upshot of this visit with Conan Doyle''s duo is an algorithm-sketch for the solving of murder mysteries. Side two also involves a look at the author''s mechanical'' approach to writing fiction, and the philosophical side of computerized story generation. The volume is peppered with numerous illustrations, all quite professionally done.

Philosophie asiatique/Asian philosophy

Product : Philosophie asiatique/Asian philosophy
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This volume on Asian philosophy is the 7th volume in the series Contemporary Philosophy. The main objective of the series is to review the philosophical research over the last 20-30 years in the countries concerned. Quite a few surveys in the present volume also contain original contributions to the discussion of the various topics. The bulk of the contributions are written by scholars from India, Japan, and Korea. A main tenet in nearly all articles is the deep interest in classical philosophy and religious movements. Central topics in Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and also Shamanism are discussed. These traditions are certainly distinct from classical metaphysics in the European philosophy, as is extensively shown by Panikkar in the case of classical Indian thinking. At the same time it is well known that, for instance, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism have exerted a significant influence on many European philosophers, particularly from Plotinus onwards. Spinoza, Leibniz and Hegel are great mediators between Asian and European philosophical traditions. Besides metaphysical issues, the authors discuss well known topics in moral and political philosophy as well as philosophy of logic and language. The volume no doubt invites to a crosscultural philosophical discussion.

Product : Instabilities and Turbulence in Engineering Flows
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book contains contributions by colleagues, former students and friends of Professor Eli Reshotko in celebration of his 60th birthday. Since Professor Reshotko''s scientific and engineering contributions have been in the areas of hydrodynamic stability, transition to turbulence, and boundary layer flows, it is only appropriate that the articles in this volume be devoted to these and related topics. The first two sections focus on instabilities and transition in subsonic and supersonic flows, respectively. The third section deals with developing turbulence, while the final section treats related problems in engineering fluid mechanics. The diversity and scope of the articles contained herein exemplify the insight and expertise required in the study of transitional and turbulent flows today -- traits which also exemplify Eli Reshotko''s contributions to these fields.

Computational Methods in Solid Mechanics

Product : Computational Methods in Solid Mechanics
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This volume presents an introduction to the three numerical methods most commonly used in the mechanical analysis of deformable solids, viz. the finite element method (FEM), the linear iteration method (LIM), and the finite difference method (FDM). The book has been written from the point of view of simplicity and unity; its originality lies in the comparable emphasis given to the spatial, temporal and nonlinear dimensions of problem solving. This leads to a neat global algorithm. Chapter 1 addresses the problem of a one-dimensional bar, with emphasis being given to the virtual work principle. Chapters 2--4 present the three numerical methods. Although the discussion relates to a one-dimensional model, the formalism used is extendable to two-dimensional situations. Chapter 5 is devoted to a detailed discussion of the compact combination of the three methods, and contains several sections concerning their computer implementation. Finally, Chapter 6 gives a generalization to two and three dimensions of both the mechanical and numerical aspects. For graduate students and researchers whose work involves the theory and application of computational solid mechanics.

Artificial Intelligence and Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach

Product : Artificial Intelligence and Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Creativity is one of the least understood aspects of intelligence and is often seen as `intuitive'' and not susceptible to rational enquiry. Recently, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in the area, principally in artificial intelligence and cognitive science, but also in psychology, philosophy, computer science, logic, mathematics, sociology, and architecture and design. This volume brings this work together and provides an overview of this rapidly developing field. It addresses a range of issues. Can computers be creative? Can they help us to understand human creativity? How can artificial intelligence (AI) enhance human creativity? How, in particular, can it contribute to the `sciences of the artificial'', such as design? Does the new wave of AI (connectionism, geneticism and artificial life) offer more promise in these areas than classical, symbol-handling AI? What would the implications be for AI and cognitive science if computers could not be creative? These issues are explored in five interrelated parts, each of which is introducted and explained by a leading figure in the field. - Prologue (Margaret Boden) - Part I: Foundational Issues (Terry Dartnall) - Part II: Creativity and Cognition (Graeme S. Halford and Robert Levinson) - Part III: Creativity and Connectionism (Chris Thornton) - Part IV: Creativity and Design (John Gero) - Part V: Human Creativity Enhancement (Ernest Edmonds) - Epilogue (Douglas Hofstadter) For researchers in AI, cognitive science, computer science, philosophy, psychology, mathematics, logic, sociology, and architecture and design; and anyone interested in the rapidly growing field of artificial intelligence and creativity.

The Modern Era of Coronary Thrombolysis

Product : The Modern Era of Coronary Thrombolysis
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Coronary heart disease remains the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States and other industrialized nations. Acute myocardial infarction accounts for a majority of these deaths, approaching 750,000 yearly. Thrombolytic therapy has revolutionized the treatment of myocardial infarction, saving lives to a greater extent than any treatment developed to date. The identification of patients best suited for thrombolytic therapy has been a challenging task, as has the ideal adjuvant strategy. Further, the noninvasic diagnosis of treatment successes and failures, as well as the expeditious triaging of patients requiring mechanical/surgical revascularization have been difficult to define, but progress has been made recently. The emergence of information vital for patient care has appeared at an extraordinary pace, with hundreds of articles being published yearly. Unfortunately, a resource devoted to the area of thrombolysis does not exist, making the dissemination of information to physicians, scientists and health care providers problematic. The Modern Era of Coronary Thrombolysis is designed to bring the medical and scientific communities up to date. It will serve as a foundation for future investigation, as well as a resource which can be referred to for many years to come.

Product : Encyclopedia and Utopia: The Life and Work of Otto Neurath (1882-1945)
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The present Volume 4 of the Vienna Circle Yearbook is dedicated to Otto Neurath, one of the leading figures of the Vienna Circle and one of last polymaths representative of the vanished culture from which the Circle emerged. Situating Neurath''s work between the topoi of Encyclopedism - as a theoretical, scientific tool of the `unfinished'' project of (post-) enlightenment - and Utopianism - as the resolve to work for the systematic improvement of society and science - this volume presents the most recent research as well as critical and updated surveys and assessments of Neurath''s many-faceted and impressive life work. The contributions range from history and philosophy of science, epistemology, sociology and economics to pictorial statistics (ISOTYPE) and museology. Special attention is given to Neurath''s methodological holism and epistemological naturalism, as well as to the interrelations of the different disciplines in Neurath''s conception of the Unity of Science. Most contributors agree that the historical and systematic reconstruction of Neurath''s conception of science leads to issues of crucial relevance to the ongoing task of sharpening the instrument that is science for its responsible application in the natural and social world. The volume also includes Neurath''s previously unpublished full manuscript on visual education, a report on archival holdings concerning Neurath''s work and a review section focusing on recent publications on Neurath and Logical Empiricism. An overview of the activities of the Institute Vienna Circle 1996/97 concludes the volume. Audience: Philosophers in general, philosophers of science and historians of science, and sociologists. The book will also interest scholars specialized in adult education, museology and economics.

Morphosyntax of Verb Movement: A Minimalist Approach to the Syntax of Dutch

Product : Morphosyntax of Verb Movement: A Minimalist Approach to the Syntax of Dutch
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Morphosyntax of Verb Movement discusses the phenomenon of Dutch, present in many Germanic languages, that the finite verb is fronted in main clauses but not in embedded clauses. The theoretical framework adopted is the so-called Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995), the latest developmental stage of generative grammar. Taking issue with previous analyses, the author argues that phrase structure in Dutch is uniformly head initial, and that the finite verb moves to different positions in subject initial main clauses and in inversion constructions. The book contains lucid and detailed discussion of many theoretical issues in connection with the Minimalist Program, such as the relation between syntax and morphology, the nature of syntactic licensing, and the structure of the functional domain. At the same time, it offers a survey of the properties of Dutch syntax, a discussion of previous analyses of Dutch syntax and a wealth of material from dialects of Dutch and other Germanic languages.

Such problems have often been seen in isolation, but it is clear that the problem of encouraging successful transfer is complex, requiring an interdisciplinary approach. The collection of papers in this volume is deliberately diverse, offering perspectives from economics, sociology, science, engineering and public administration, drawn both from within and outside academic life, from those at the sharp end of technology licensing and the administration of government research programmes. The range of national backgrounds of the writers encompasses ten countries. Audience: Those seeking to sell and acquire new ideas, particularly across national boundaries; policy makers and strategic planners in business and universities; academics in a range of science, technology and social science disciplines.

Defense Conversion Strategies

Product : Defense Conversion Strategies
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The world situation has witnessed dramatic changes in the recent past and defense-related science and technology are coming under increasing pressure to demonstrate their ability to contribute added value to national and international economies. But defense conversion is complicated by the absence of tested principles and there is no formal training to facilitate the conversion process. As a result, such factors as long-term implications for defense together with a broad range of issues related to economic, political and social questions are not being adequately addressed. Governments and industries are searching for optimum strategies to guide the defense conversion process without benefit of either historical precedents as models or a complete understanding of the process itself. The present book identifies and studies the elements of successful defense conversion strategies through a systematic analysis of the factors influencing them and the common features of specific national efforts. The book reflects a combination of theory and practical experience. International strategies are explored that stimulate the conversion of defense technologies to industrial capacity, global economic growth and stability, the preservation and enhancement of defense technology options, and the ability to capitalize on unique economic, political and social opportunities afforded by defense technology conversion. The nations of the former Soviet Union present a particular problem. In Russia, for instance, from 1990 to 1993 there was a 47% decline in industrial production and a 38% decrease in GNP. This clearly needs immediate action, but there are difficulties with the conversion processes, technology transfer and implementation of dual-use strategies. While many of these issues are generic to the process, there are national and cultural difficulties. At a time of unprecedented global political and economic instability, the collective knowledge and experience of NATO and its Cooperation Partners will be essential to the successful conversion of defense production capabilities to economic tools that can contribute to universal economic equilibrium and prosperity.

Granite:  From Segregation of Melt to Emplacement Fabrics

Product : Granite: From Segregation of Melt to Emplacement Fabrics
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This book, in which the term granite is taken in its broadest sense, collates the most innovative contributions that were presented at the EUG 8 Meeting, X12 Symposium, held in Strasbourg during April 1995. It covers a broad range of topics related to the physical aspects of granite magmatism, which are largely under-represented in comparison with chemical-oriented approaches. Nineteen papers span the range from physical properties of granitic material to several pluton case studies. The first part, `Melt and Magmas: Properties and Segregation'', deals mainly with the physical properties and segregation of melts and magmas, including laboratory and field data. The second part, `Fabrics in Granites'', develops some lively aspects of present-day granite geology, such as magmatic fabrics at all scales, and analogue and numerical experiments aimed at modelling magmatic fabrics. The third part, `Emplacement of Granite Plutons: Case Studies'', begins with a general consideration of syntectonic granites, includes a review of the shape of plutons as inferred from combined fabric and gravity data, and comprises some spectacular examples of plutons emplaced along shear zones, in Spain, Sierra Nevada -California- (see the cover page), Nigeria, and Brazil, or emplaced along subduction zones, in Japan. Granite is the most abundant rock on the continental crust, and this unique text is devoted entirely to the understanding of its origins and emplacement by studying its internal structures. The book is particularly well-illustrated, and almost all the illustrations are original. It will serve as an invaluable reference for geologists, petrologists, geophysicists interested in the development of the continental crust and, more generally, for earth scientists.

Key Qualifications In Work And Education

Product : Key Qualifications In Work And Education
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : In today''s rapidly changing world a constant renewal of knowledge and skills in every human endeavour can be observed. The characteristics of workers and the jobs that they perform have been attended by technological, social, and political change on a global scale. New forms of employment have made work more mobile to an extent never experienced before. An increasing proportion of workers no longer need come to their employer''s job site in order to do their work. The instability of employment is creating a new breed of workers who know how to move efficiently from one job to another. As a consequence workers need flexible qualifications to perform jobs. Key qualifications are the answer! Key qualifications provide the key to rapid and effective acquisition of new knowledge and skills. First, qualifications enable workers to react effectively to, and exercise initiative in, changes to their work. Second, qualifications enable workers to shape their own career in a time of diminishing job security, nowadays frequently defined as `employability''.

International Manufacturing Strategies: Context, Content and Change

Product : International Manufacturing Strategies: Context, Content and Change
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership>Production and Operations Management
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Over the last twenty years, there has been an increasing number of factors that have placed the manufacturing strategies of companies and countries in a global context. This book reviews and addresses the global manufacturing strategy area through research in the four major economic areas of the world: Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia. International Manufacturing Strategies: Context, Content and Change is the result of a single major research project undertaken in twenty countries, focusing on the manufacturing strategies and practices in each, and uses research data to focus on factors specific to industrial countries or regions and those which are common across the group of countries or the entire sample The core of this book is a set of chapters reviewing individual countries. Each country is reviewed in a format with an overall common approach: the socio-economic background; the distinctive results for that country from the research and the link between the two. Most will be illustrated by a small case study of a company. Following this is an integrating review of the findings from various countries, the different trajectories followed, and the impact on external variables and the socioeconomic context on those. The final part of the book is devoted to new ideas and developments in functional areas and in manufacturing strategy that have been developed from the analysis conducted during the research.

Strategic Risk: A State-Defined Approach

Product : Strategic Risk: A State-Defined Approach
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership>Operations Research
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Strategic Risk examines a fundamental issue in the field of strategic management and organizations: how to study changes in the competitive outcomes of firms. Collins and Ruefli develop the concept of ordinal risk and extend this concept and its associated measures to the more general framework of state-defined systems. The book makes the state-defined risk methodology more accessible to strategic management researchers, and to social scientists in general. The need for quantitative frameworks with which to analyze the dynamics of strategic management has been apparent for some time. The state-defined risk methodology has the advantage of being based on a common usage definition of risk, and is also based on a mathematically well-behaved function. It permits investigation of the chance of gain while yielding a measure of environmental uncertainty. Finally, the development is general and permits applications employing a variety of performance dimensions over a range of entities in a diversity of contexts. The authors demonstrate the practicability and reliability of this approach by applying the model to mutual funds, large mining and manufacturing firms, and public firms on an industry by industry basis.
