Conducting Terrorism Field Research: A Guide

Adam Dolnik

Conducting Terrorism Field Research: A Guide by Adam Dolnik

This book offers a detailed and practically oriented guide to the challenges of conducting terrorist fieldwork.

The past decade has seen an explosion of research into terrorism. However, field research on terrorism has traditionally been surrounded by many myths, and has been called anything from "necessary" and "crucial" to "dangerous", "unethical" and "impossible". While there is an increasing interest among terrorism specialists in conducting such research, there is no single volume providing prospective field researchers with a guideline to such work.

The Social Life of Materials: Studies in Materials and Society

Adam Drazin

The Social Life of Materials: Studies in Materials and Society by Adam DrazinMaterials play a central role in society. Beyond the physical and chemical properties of materials, their cultural properties have often been overlooked in anthropological studies: finished products have been perceived as 'social' yet the materials which comprise them are considered 'raw' or natural'. The Social Life of Materials proposes a new perspective in this interdisciplinary field. Diverting attention from the consumption of objects, the book looks towards the properties of materials and how these exist through many transformations in a variety of cultural contexts.

Greek Philosophers as Theologians: The Divine Arche

Adam Drozdek

Greek Philosophers as Theologians: The Divine Arche by Adam DrozdekConcepts of God presented by Greek philosophers were significantly different from the image of the divine of popular religion and indicate a fairly sophisticated theological reflection from the very inception of Greek philosophy. This book presents a comprehensive history of theological thought of Greek philosophers from the Presocratics to the early Hellenistic period. Concentrating on views concerning the attributes of God and their impact on eschatological and ethical thought, Drozdek explains that theology was of paramount importance for all Greek philosophers even in the absence of purely...

The Perfect Corporate Board: A Handbook for Mastering the Unique Challenges of Small-Cap Companies

The Perfect Corporate Board: A Handbook for Mastering the Unique Challenges of Small-Cap Companies by Adam Epstein

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO SMALL-CAP GOVERNANCE

At a time when the U.S. economy is relying on small- and medium-sized companies to provide more jobs, the healthy functioning of corporate boards is more critical than ever. But the dialog on corporate governance has thus far focused predominantly on large corporations. As a result of "one-size-fits-all" governance, small-cap companies are routinely stymied by unique governance issues for which there has been no objective, practical guidance--until now.

The Perfect Corporate Board offers best practices designed specifically for smaller companies. It...

Mass Informed Consent

Adam F. Simon

Mass Informed Consent by Adam F. SimonPublic opinion polling permeates today's politics, yet many seem suspicious of polls and skeptical in their prominence, fearing that overreliance on public opinion amounts to pandering or that pollsters can manipulate a feeble public. In this book Adam Simon argues that democracy requires that government listen to the public and that sample surveys are the finest democratic technology yet devised. He lays out the fundamentals of public opinion research and illustrates his discussion of the science of polling with recent political hot button issues as case studies-the decision to invade Iraq,...

The project takes an innovative approach to answering this question by bringing together critical and empirical methods as well as game theory in a sophisticated yet readable text. The answer comes in four parts. First, Simon develops the idea of dialogue as a standard for evaluating political campaigns. Second, he shows that candidates' self-interest in winning leads them to avoid...

Green Activism in Post-Socialist Europe and the Former Soviet Union

Green Activism in Post-Socialist Europe and the Former Soviet Union by Adam Fagan

Green activism played a critical role in the downfall of Soviet-style communism in Eastern Europe at the end of the 1980s. After the revolutions, environmentalists were expected to exert influence within the new democracies and to form the bedrock of the new civil societies that were predicted to flourish across the region; the prospect of EU membership provided activist networks with even greater optimism about their political opportunities. Two decades later what has been the impact of political and economic liberalisation on environmental campaigners and policy advocates? Has access to elites...

Beginning with Ida B. Wells and the campaign against lynching in the 1890s, Fairclough chronicles the tradition of protest that led to the formation of the NAACP, Booker T. Washington and the strategy of accommodation, Marcus Garvey and the push for black nationalism, through to Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Civil...

Understanding Development Economics: Its Challenge to Development Studies

Understanding Development Economics: Its Challenge to Development Studies by Adam Fforde

Important parts of development practice, especially in key institutions such as the World Bank, are dominated by economists. In contrast, Development Studies is largely based upon multidisciplinary work in which anthropologists, human geographers, sociologists, and others play important roles. Hence, a tension has arisen between the claims made by Development Economics to be a scientific, measurable discipline prone to wide usage of mathematical modelling, and the more discursive, practice based approach favoured by Development Studies.

The aim of this book is to show how the two disciplines...

In The Naked Constitution, conservative legal scholar Adam Freedman defends the controversial doctrine of originalism as the only way to restore the Founding Fathers' vision of American liberty.

A Less Perfect Union

Adam Freedman

A Less Perfect Union by Adam FreedmanOne of America's leading conservative commentators on constitutional law provides an illuminating history of states' rights, and the vital importance of reviving them today.

Liberals believe that the argument for "states' rights" is a smokescreen for racist repression. But historically, the doctrine of states' rights has been an honorable tradition—a necessary component of constitutional government and a protector of American freedoms. Our Constitution is largely devoted to restraining the federal government and protecting state sovereignty. Yet for decades, Adam Freedman contends, the federal...

Programming .NET Security

Adam Freeman & Allen Jones

Programming .NET Security by Adam Freeman & Allen Jones

With the spread of web-enabled desktop clients and web-server based applications, developers can no longer afford to treat security as an afterthought. It's one topic, in fact, that .NET forces you to address, since Microsoft has placed security-related features at the core of the .NET Framework. Yet, because a developer's carelessness or lack of experience can still allow a program to be used in an unintended way, Programming .NET Security shows you how the various tools will help you write secure applications.

The book works as both a comprehensive tutorial and reference to security issues...

The Noble Gases: Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, Radon

Adam Furgang

The Noble Gases: Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, Radon by Adam FurgangThe majority of elements on the Periodic Table are able to mingle with other, thereby forming molecules, mixtures, compounds, and new substances. Some elements, however, are "unreactive" and don't mix easily with other elements. In this latter category fall the Noble Gases, so-called because they show an almost aristocratic reserve, standing at a remove from other elements. Readers will learn that while aloof, the noble gases have many practical uses-including in lasers, blimps, hot air balloons, colorful illuminated signage, incandescent light bulbs, flourescent lights, arc welding, window...

Naturally Human, Supernaturally God: Deification in Pre-Conciliar Catholicism

Adam G. Cooper

Naturally Human, Supernaturally God: Deification in Pre-Conciliar Catholicism by Adam G. CooperNaturally Human, Supernaturally God seeks to open a small window upon an interesting case of theological convergence between three of the most important theologians of the pre-Conciliar period of Catholic theology, Réginald Garrigou-Lagrange O.P., Karl Rahner S.J., and Henri de Lubac S.J., each of whom played a vital role in the Second Vatican Council. The differences between these three figures sometimes seem to run so deep as to defy resolution. Yet Cooper argues they were strangely united in a shared conviction of the doctrine of deification.

Selling Shakespeare

Adam G. Hooks

Selling Shakespeare by Adam G. HooksSelling Shakespeare tells a story of Shakespeare's life and career in print, a story centered on the people who created, bought, and sold books in the early modern period. The interests and investments of publishers and booksellers have defined our ideas of what is 'Shakespearean', and attending to their interests demonstrates how one version of Shakespearean authorship surpassed the rest. In this book, Adam G. Hooks identifies and examines four pivotal episodes in Shakespeare's life in print: the debut of his narrative poems, the appearance of a series of best-selling plays, the publication...

Where is the Wise Man? Graeco-Roman Education as a Background to the Divisions in 1 Corinthians 1-4

Adam G. White

Where is the Wise Man? Graeco-Roman Education as a Background to the Divisions in 1 Corinthians 1-4 by Adam G. WhiteThe divisions in the Corinthian church are catalogued by Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:12: "Each of you says, 'I follow Paul,' or 'I follow Apollos,' or 'I follow Cephas,' or 'I follow Christ.'?? White shows how these splits are found in the milieu of 1st-century Graeco-Roman education. By consulting relevant literary and epigraphic evidence, White develops a picture of ancient education throughout the Empire generally, and in Roman Corinth specifically. This serves as a backdrop to the situation in the Christian community, wherein some of the elite, educated members preferred Apollos to Paul as a...

Friend and Foe: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, and How to Succeed at Both

Adam Galinsky & Maurice Schweitzer

Friend and Foe: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, and How to Succeed at Both by Adam Galinsky & Maurice SchweitzerWhat does it take to succeed? This question has fueled a long-running debate. Some have argued that humans are fundamentally competitive, and that pursuing self-interest is the best way to get ahead. Others claim that humans are born to cooperate and that we are most successful when we collaborate with others.

In FRIEND AND FOE, researchers Galinsky and Schweitzer explain why this debate misses the mark. Rather than being hardwired to compete or cooperate, we have evolved to do both. In every relationship, from co-workers to friends to spouses to siblings we are both friends and foes. It is only...

Jewcentricity: Why the Jews Are Praised, Blamed, and Used to Explain Just About Everything

Jewcentricity: Why the Jews Are Praised, Blamed, and Used to Explain Just About Everything by Adam Garfinkle

A wise and wide-ranging explanation of never-ending exaggerationâ€"by both philo-Semites and anti-Semitesâ€"about the Jews

Hamas blames the financial crisis on Jews. Mel Gibson blamed all the wars on Jews. Jews win a disproportionate number of Nobel prizes. Dishy Danish citizen Scarlett Johansson is Jewish, Madonna is into Jewish mysticism, and some claim that Abe Lincoln was Jewish. Who cares? Nearly everyone, it seems. If it's about Jews, it's news. Adam Garfinkle looks deeply into the world's obsession with Jews, positive as well as negative, to find answers about where it...

A Practical Guide to Winning the War on Terrorism

Adam Garfinkle

A Practical Guide to Winning the War on Terrorism by Adam GarfinkleThe military side of the war on terrorism, says Adam Garfinkle, is a necessary but not sufficient aspect of the solution. Weapons of mass destruction are activated by ideas of mass destruction, and these ideas arise from complex historical and social factors. A Practical Guide to Winning the War on Terrorism offers concrete steps for undermining the very notion that terrorism is a legitimate method of political struggle—and for changing the conditions that lead people to embrace it.
