Within the past four decades a powerful scientific methodology has emerged that promises to dramatically recast our concept of nature and mankind's place in it. Unlike the traditional analytical approach which breaks nature down into smaller and smaller constituent parts, chaos theory, the theory of self-organization, and other so-called sciences of complexity, explore dynamic systems in their totalities, so as to lay bare the great constants governing their emergence, organization, and evolution. Using the tools of complexity, researchers recently have made breakthroughs in the understanding of such divers phenomena as weather systems, economies, and even the most daunting scientific mystery of all, the mind as an emergent property of the brain's dense neuronal mazes.

This book raises students' awareness and understanding of global trends, forces, and events by showing them how to think about the world systematically. Based on more than a decade of teaching about global issues to university undergraduates, the book focuses on understanding globalization and its effects on our lives. The book's seven chapters cover important principles and concepts from the systems perspective, such as what a system is, what global systems are, how and why systems grow and decline, what makes global systems invisible, how global issues are addressed as political questions, and others. Seven case studies apply these principles to global issues, such as the AIDS pandemic, endangered species and endangered languages, global energy systems and gasoline prices, contaminated food, and the consequences of the terrorist attacks of 9-11. The book includes two appendices: a glossary of important global system terms, and a description of global systems and cyberspace, including the structure and governance of the Internet.

Ein neuer Blick auf alte Freunde Erstaunliche Dinge geschehen im Wald: Bäume, die miteinander kommunizieren.

Aber wahr! – Der Förster Peter Wohlleben erzählt faszinierende Geschichten über die ungeahnten und höchst erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten der Bäume. Dazu zieht er die neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse ebenso heran wie seine eigenen unmittelbaren Erfahrungen mit dem Wald und schafft so eine aufregend neue Begegnung für die Leser: Wir schließen Bekanntschaft mit einem Lebewesen, das uns vertraut schien, uns aber hier erstmals in seiner ganzen Lebendigkeit vor Augen tritt.

In this classic study, Henri Parens and Leon J. Saul provide a comprehensive review of Freud's writings on the subject of dependence, drawing attention to the fact that Freud said much more about dependence than is generally recognised. The authors proceed to supplement the theory of dependence from their own perspective, drawing on the formulations of Rene Spitz and the findings of ethologists (especially in imprinting and primary socialization) in order to shed further light on the singularity of early human development. They postulate the libidinization of dependence and trace the effects of this on psychic development, and also consider the dependence continuum in dynamic and economic terms ("inner sustainment"), which reflects the equilibrium between dependency and self-reliance. Utilising Anna Freud's developmental lines and Margaret Mahler's subphases of separation and individuation, they trace the epigenesis of dependence and provide illuminating clinical examples.In both its theoretical formulations and its clinical implications, this book will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, and to clinicians in allied fields. The recognition of normative dependence brings pathological dependence into clearer focus, thus refining assessments of dependence in treatment and offering a more discriminating frame of reference for teaching and research. Because it focuses on normative aspects of dependence, this book will provide a fresh orientation for all students of human behavior and will undoubtedly raise many questions and stimulate further research.

A sourcebook of historical written texts, video documentation, and working programs that form the foundation of new media. This reader collects the texts, videos, and computer programs--many of them now almost impossible to find--that chronicle the history and form the foundation of the still-emerging field of new media. General introductions by Janet Murray and Lev Manovich, along with short introductions to each of the texts, place the works in their historical context and explain their significance. The texts were originally published between World War II--when digital computing, cybernetic feedback, and early notions of hypertext and the Internet first appeared--and the emergence of the World Wide Web--when they entered the mainstream of public life. The texts are by computer scientists, artists, architects, literary writers, interface designers, cultural critics, and individuals working across disciplines. The contributors include (chronologically) Jorge Luis Borges, Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, Ivan Sutherland, William S. Burroughs, Ted Nelson, Italo Calvino, Marshall McLuhan, Jean Baudrillard, Nicholas Negroponte, Alan Kay, Bill Viola, Sherry Turkle, Richard Stallman, Brenda Laurel, Langdon Winner, Robert Coover, and Tim Berners-Lee. The CD accompanying the book contains examples of early games, digital art, independent literary efforts, software created at universities, and home-computer commercial software. Also on the CD is digitized video, documenting new media programs and artwork for which no operational version exists. One example is a video record of Douglas Engelbart's first presentation of the mouse, word processor, hyperlink, computer-supported cooperative work, video conferencing, and the dividing up of the screen we now call non-overlapping windows; another is documentation of Lynn Hershman's Lorna, the first interactive video art installation.

Involvement by men, especially African American men, in the Christian church has always been notoriously sparse. Pastors, seminary scholars, and Christian leaders, male and female, have pondered the problem, but it remains a question. The women ask, “What is wrong with the brothers?” My response is, “Why does it have to be something wrong with the brothers?” Could it be that as African American males want to hear something other than what is being preached? Have we considered preaching the Gospel of Christ from a masculine perspective? Is it possible that because the majority of churches are 70% female, that the Good News is inadvertently preached by male and female preachers from an implicit female perspective? Perhaps preachers are subconsciously more concerned with maintaining the satisfaction of the bulk of the tithing parishioners, who are women? Let the Men Fight challenges the notion that the fault resides with African American men, and strives to provide a “male sensitive” Word. However, there is a caveat. The warning is, upon learning and accepting the truth, God expects us to go tell and teach others. Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. 20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.”

Animal Products in Human Nutrition evaluates the contributions of food derived from animals to a balanced diet. The individual chapters in this book are organized into two major sections. The first section begins with a history of the use of animal-derived foods from the early ages of mankind, followed by a treatise of economic and resource costs of animal foods, including use of industrial and agricultural by-products and fish. Trends in the changes in the composition of American diets and the metabolism and disposition of common environmental toxins within animal tissues are also included in this section. The second section details the essential nutrients provided by animal products, as well as the possible effects of consumption of animal products on the development of hypertension, milk intolerance, infections from food-borne bacteria, cancer, and atherosclerosis. This book will be useful to agricultural scientists, journalists, professionals that deal with human nutrition, and human nutritionists and dietitians.

Auftritt für einen Superhelden der besonderen Art Giftiger Regen, der den Kindern die Stimme raubt. Ein unterirdisch brodelndes toxisches Gemisch, das an die Oberfläche drückt – das Ökosystem der Insel Mancreu ist dank skrupelloser Chemiekonzerne komplett verseucht. Die internationale Gemeinschaft beschließt die Zerstörung der Insel, was allerlei Gesindel auf der Jagd nach schnellem Profit anzieht. Eine echte Herausforderung für Ordnungshüter Lester Ferris. Und dann ist da noch der Junge: ein Comicbuch-verrücktes Straßenkind, das Lester als Herz gewachsen ist. Er hat sich geschworen, ihn zu beschützen – und muss zu einem außergewöhnlichen Helden werden. Auch in Nick Harkaways neuem Roman spielt wieder ein Ensemble skurriler, fein gezeichneter Figuren auf, angeführt von einem ziemlich angekratzten Superhelden, der der Grenze zwischen Gut und Böse mehr als einmal gefährlich nahe kommt.

Contemporary Indian Houses discusses fifty-one architect-designed built-up houses selected from different parts of India. They display the diversity of needs, tastes and building materials in the context of different weather conditions and social trends. Different architectural appearances or external expressions have determined the classification of the houses into five sections. This grouping keeps the reader’s growing interest in the external aspect of a residential structure. The emphasis is on the built-form rather than on the interior and its decor. Each house is accompanied by an explanatory text and supplemented by appropriate drawings and photographs to present a comprehensive picture of India's many-splendoured domestic architecture. Contemporary Indian Houses is a well illustrated document of changing trends in architectural tune. It is not only a reflection of contemporary Indian architecture but also source of reference material for architecture historians. Moreover, it fulfills the needs of architects and other professionals engaged in house construction activity along with those general readers who wish to keep themselves informed of what is happening in the field of creative design.

The world is currently in the middle of the most significant societal, social and cultural revolution in its history. Old leadership and social patterns are not yielding the expected results of fiscal growth and prosperity throughout the world and the widening gap between upper and lower income levels has resulted in an increased level of social unrest. The activities of various citizen's groups and anti-establishment organizations such as Wikileaks are expanding an ever-widening chasm between traditional political and societal structures and the population at large. Politicians world-wide are facing never before seen challenges - socially, economically and environmentally. Taken individually, these trials might seem manageable. Taken collectively, however, they reveal the metamorphosis of the social and political structure of society at large from one dominated by capitalism in all of its forms, to one dominated by a new and emerging social order - Inclusivism.
