Description:
CRC Press, 2016. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Chandrasekharam and other Earth scientists survey the resources in and around the Red Sea that have potential to generate geothermal electric power, not only to try to convince policy makers in both oil-rich and oil-poor countries to take advantage of the resources, but also to encourage young people to make a career in geothermal power, saying there are too few people and too little expertise to develop the technology. They cover electricity demand and energy sources, carbon dioxide emissions, geothermal provinces, carbon dioxide mitigation strategy, geothermal exploration techniques, power generation systems, direct applications, enhanced geothermal systems, and economics.

Connor compares the ways in which cultural and political institutions have responded to the Great Recession and explores how the movie industry has undergone reshuffling and recentered itself in new emblems of the process of social integration such as protocol violation and ostension. The second half of the book identifies four forms in which the process of managing abstraction has come apart and subsequently been renormalized as the results of a new quasi-digital process. Black and white movie stills are provided. (2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Among specific topics are what it takes to become a Nobel laureate, the University of Macau: the creation of a new Asian university, whether the University of Nottingham Ningbo China is a game-changing model for higher education, why Russians are so good at science, and a thank you note to Iris Chang.

Description:
De Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2017. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. The considerable academic study of the 1980 Carter Doctrine, which shifted the focus of US power projection from Europe and East Asia to the Middle East, has mostly focused on the reasons for the shift, but de Vinha is more interested in how it changed the thinking and actual conduct of American foreign policy. He considers traditional approaches to mapping the Carter Doctrine, geographic mental maps and foreign policy change; and re-mapping the Carter Doctrine: the Carter administration's geographic mental maps. His findings challenge previous studies based on punctuated equilibrium and planned change models. (2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Description:
Praeger, 2017. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. The author challenges the idea that US Congress members serve special interest groups in return for high-paying jobs in industry once they leave office and that they become lax in their final terms when providing representation to citizens. He claims that special interests help to constrain them instead by judging poor last-period performance and refusing to hire politicians who deviated from constituents¬í expectations in their last term, so that they take their representation seriously. He examines the relationship between the last-period behaviors and post-legislative careers of senators and representatives who left Congress between 2001 and 2011 and describes how elections compel legislators to behave loyally toward constituents, how exiting members thwart their constituents interests in the absence of this constraint, and motivational differences between retiring and job-seeking legislators; what senators and representatives do after leaving… Read more

Edward Elgar, 2010. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. D'Agostino (Osgoode Hall Law School, York U., Canada) evaluates the efficacy of copyright law in common law jurisdictions to address the exploitation of freelance authors' works in the digital era. He argues that there is an imbalance favoring publishers over authors that allows for over-exploitation of authors' works in new media. In the face of the lack of adequate legislation, he proposes an equilibrated copyright theory that would justify legislative restrictions such as a pro-author default rule to be codified and applied by the courts, as well as other judicial interpretive principles and industry mechanisms in order to address the inadequacies of copyright treatment of freelance work.

The handbook is divided into sections on collaboration, the idea and problem analysis phases, and dissemination, communication, and evaluation. One chapter offers details on all of the report's elements, from the cover and title page to the conclusion and appendices. There is also material on print and live presentations and using visual aids. The handbook's open layout offers many checklists, examples, and summary… Read more

Pasquier (1529-1615) was a renowned lawyer and magistrate who carefully worked to construct his persona as a moral and cultural center of the parliament of Paris, says Dahlinger, and thus sought to place his stamp on French law and public life. He discusses Pasquier's self-fashioning as the ideal public servant; law, custom, and the individual revisited in the pourparlers sub-genre; law and the Christian tradition in France; and Pasquier's reception in posterity.

Emerald, 2013. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. This volume contains eight essays and two review essays by US, Australian, and UK scholars, who examine the relationship between social theory and history. They consider the work of classical theorists like Weber, including his ideas on the Protestant ethic thesis and charisma; the work of T√∂nnies, Veblen, Durkheim, Simmel, and Weber on the idea that progress is inevitable; and the challenge of identifying the nature of the central subject matter of social science, focusing on Durkheim's theory of collective representations. They also discuss the regional and historical forms that require a paradigmatic reassessment of concepts used for comparative mapping of human societies; the shared premises of structuration and morphogenesis approaches in social theory and the benefits of testing social theories through eventful historical analysis; the integration of classical institutionalism, neo-evolutionary sociology, and other related traditions into a… Read more

In a book on differential geometry, Cui and Dai apply the moving-frame method to the adjoint approach to study the kinematics of two surfaces subject to rolling contact and sliding-rolling contact in robot's interaction with the world. This book differs from others, they say, by dealing with two surfaces, so the geometry of both comes into play, and by focusing on the geometry of the two surfaces within the encompassing space (extrinsic) rather than within the surfaces (intrinsic) because they are concerned with the kinematics of one surface in three-dimensional Euclidean space-the world.

Daianu (the former chief economist of the Romanian Central Bank, now a professor of economics at Romania's National School for Political Studies and Public Administration) brings together eight pieces of economic analysis authored or co-authored over the past decade. Topics include the prerequisites of economic development, including the role of ethics; the current financial crisis; the European economic model and challenges facing the European Union; the crisis of the international economic regime within the context of the diminishing power of the West, and a looming "clash of capitalisms." Overall, he argues that modern economies need regulations and public policies so that public goods are in adequate supply and negative externalities are prevented or constrained.
