代理商:大苹果 HUMAN IN DEATH: MORALITY AND MORTALITY IN J. D. ROBB’S NOVELS
by KECIA ALI
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:200    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: Fiction, by effectively combining profit with delight, creates a world for entertainment and moral reflection. This book explores the best-selling futuristic suspense series In Death, written by romance legend Nora Roberts under the pseudonym J D Robb. Centring on troubled NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her billionaire tycoon husband Roarke, the In Death novels offer a compelling model for human flourishing. Through close readings of over fifty novels and novellas published over two decades, Ali analyses the ethical world of Robb’s New York circa 2060. Ali explores Robb’s depictions of egalitarian relationships, satisfying work, friendships built on trust, and an array of models of femininity and family. At the same time, the series’ imagined future replicates some of the least admirable aspects of contemporary society. Sexual violence, police brutality, structural poverty and racism, and government surveillance persist in Robb’s fictional universe, raising urgent moral challenges. So do ordinary ethical quandaries around trust, intimacy, and interdependence in marriage, family, and friendship. Ali celebrates the series’ ethical successes, while questioning its critical moral omissions. She probes the limits of Robb’s imagined world and tests its possibilities for fostering identity, meaning, and mattering of human relationships across social difference. Ali capitalises on Robb’s futuristic fiction to reveal how careful and critical reading is an ethical act -- the happy confluence of profit and delight.

Obadiah Stark aka The Tally Man, is executed at ADX Absolom, his death sentence watched by the world’s media, victim relatives and one investigative reporter, Joe O Connell.

While this is happening in the real world, Obadiah Stark awakens to an afterlife where he has a wife and daughter bound to his childhood hometown. Following his natural predatory instinct, Obadiah proceeds to torment the town, committing multiple murders before being gunned down by the police. He awakens to find that everything has reset, with no one recalling his murderous spree a reality which offers no escape.

代理商:大苹果 THE BIG CAT MAN: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
by JONATHAN SCOTT
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:336    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: This new autobiography by wildlife celebrity Jonathan Scott celebrates the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most popular wildlife presenters and photographers. From his childhood on a Berkshire farm in the UK to his rise to international fame as a presenter on the Big Cat Diary, one of the BBC Natural History Unit’s most popular and long-running wildlife series, Jonathan Scott has lived a life that many people can only dream about. Following a degree in Zoology he travels 6,000 miles overland to Africa, where he becomes first a wildlife artist and then a safari guide in the Maasai Mara. His experience allows him to write his first major book The Marsh Lions, followed by The Leopard’s Tale. At the same time, his TV career is launched when he becomes a presenter on the long-running American series Wild Kingdom. Over the years Jonathan’s observations of wildlife prompt him to reflect on his own life, revealing a side to his character that he has struggled to overcome since childhood. Aged nearly forty, he finally finds peace through meeting and marrying his wife, Angela, and together with her two children they go on to prove you can mix domestic life and an adventurous career when you share a love of family and wilderness, art and photography. From their base in Kenya Jonathan and Angela travel to Antarctica, a continent which grips them no less than their adopted homeland, followed in later years by travels to India and Bhutan. Throughout, the call of Africa always draws them home, but Africa and the rest of the world are under siege from the tide of humanity that threatens to snuff out the last wild places. Having travelled the globe in search of award-winning photographs and lived a life of adventure, Jonathan and Angie find their world changes forever the day she is diagnosed with a cranial aneurism requiring urgent brain surgery. Facing up to that challenge draws them even closer together and forces them to examine the meaning of life, leading them on a spiritual journey to rival anything they have undertaken before. Ultimately, The Big Cat Man is a love story: one man’s infatuation with Africa and his unfailing devotion to the woman who shares his passion. Jonathan’s writing makes for a fascinating safari through a life lived in the world’s most spectacular wilderness area. His book raises uncomfortable questions about the future of wildlife on a continent where the needs of the people sometimes seem overwhelming; it will bring hope to those who have struggled with their own demons and been afraid to seek help; but most of all it will be an inspiration for those who, like Jonathan and Angie, long to follow their dream, whatever it may be.

代理商:大苹果 SOCIAL MEDIA: LEGAL RISK AND CORPORATE POLICY
by COHEN
页数:534    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: Lawyers and jurists, corporate policymakers, and government regulatory agencies have only just begun to address the practical business and legal risk issues raised by the proliferation of social media channels and content.

Social Media: Legal Risk and Corporate Policy explores the implications suggested by the precursors of a forthcoming tidal wave of social media-related civil litigation, the spectrum of potential corporate policy approaches to reducing the risks inherent in social media use, and the social media service privacy policy minefield that all social media participants, corporate and individual, will have to navigate if they want to optimize what little control they have over information shared by using social media.

Social Media: Legal Risk andamp; Corporate Policy is intended for professionals in various roles within the business enterprise that include responsibility for social media, or for those who seek to understand the subject matter for other reasons. Lawyers can learn about social media in litigation; corporate policymakers can identify social media risks and learn how to craft policy in response to these risks; and social media specialists within the business enterprise can understand what information is at stake in their forays into social media and what risks can threaten the opportunities that abound online. Corporate executives with overarching responsibility for steering the enterprise should also have an understanding of these issues, because social media is only going to become a more important influence in the success of their businesses.

英文概要: The only other option de Venise has is to stage a big-money heist planned by his crooked lawyer friend Arnie, but he’s already turned down that particular deal. Arnie’s plan was too risky, and besides, de Venise knew Arnie long enough and well enough not to trust him. De Venise doesn’t trust anyone to torch the business either. Wanting it done right, he plans to do it himself, then set up an ironclad alibi.

Everything goes like clockwork until the insurance company refuses to pay off on de Venise’s policy, leaving him with no business and no money to buy off his wise guy creditors.

With no more cards to play at this point, de Venise agrees to do the heist for Arnie. If nothing else, it will get him out of the country, and if de Venise is really lucky and really smart, there’s even an outside chance of him scoring the bucks he needs to get him straight with the mob and put him back in action as the King of West Brooklyn.

代理商:大苹果 LITERACY WORK IN THE REIGN OF HUMAN CAPITAL
by EVAN WATKINS
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:184    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: In recent years, a number of books in the field of literacy research have addressed the experiences of literacy users or the multiple processes of learning literacy skills in a rapidly changing technological environment. In contrast to these studies, this book addresses the subjects of literacy. In other words, it is about how literacy workers are subjected to the relations between new forms of labor and the concept of human capital as a dominant economic structure in the United States. It is about how literacies become forms of value producing labor in everyday life both within and beyond the workplace itself.

As Evan Watkins shows, apprehending the meaning of literacy work requires an understanding of how literacies have changed in relation to not only technology but also to labor, capital, and economics. The emergence of new literacies has produced considerable debate over basic definitions as well as the complexities of gain and loss. At the same time, the visibility of these debates between advocates of old versus new literacies has obscured the development of more fundamental changes. Most significantly, Watkins argues, it is no longer possible to represent human capital solely as the kind of long-term resource that Gary Becker and other neoclassical economists have defined. Like corporate inventory and business management practices, human capital―labor―now also appears in a “just-in-time” form, as if a power of action on the occasion rather than a capital asset in reserve.

Just-in-time human capital valorizes the expansion of choice, but it depends absolutely on the invisible literacy work consigned to the peripheries of concentrated human capital. In an economy wherein peoples’ attention begins to eclipse information as a primary commodity, a small number of choices appear with an immensely magnified intensity while most others disappear entirely. As Literacy Work in the Reign of Human Capital deftly illustrates, the concentration of human labor in the digital age reinforces and extends a class division of winners on the inside of technological innovation and losers everywhere else.

代理商:大苹果 ARCHBISHOP JUSTIN WELBY: RISK-TAKER AND RECONCILER
by ANDREW ATHERSTONE
页数:256    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: When the search for a new Archbishop of Canterbury began, Justin Welby had been a bishop for only four and a half months. He had little media profile and barely figured in the early speculations about Rowan Williams’ successor. Welby claimed that it would be ’a joke’ and ’perfectly absurd’ to appoint him because he had such little episcopal experience. The Crown Nominations Commission disagreed and in March 2013 he was enthroned as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury. This, the first major biography of Welby, critically examines the words, actions and impact of his first year as head of the Anglican Communion, including his active political engagement and his tackling of controversial issues such as same-sex marriage, women bishops and the emergence of GAFCON. Biographer Andrew Atherstone also analyses Welby’s theological, strategic and pastoral qualities and, through extensive archival research and interviews with the archbishop’s friends and colleagues, presents in-depth accounts of his unsettled childhood, the experiences that influenced his conversion to Christianity at Cambridge University, his successful career in the oil industry, his personal and professional links to Africa and his rapid rise through the ranks of the Church of England. What emerges is a portrait of a global Christian leader deeply motivated by gospel values, unafraid of risk and committed to tackle issues of division within both church and society. -- Archbishop Justin Welby: Risk-taker and Reconciler is more than twice the length of Atherstone’s award-winning 2013 biography, Archbishop Justin Welby: The Road to Canterbury. It contains four new chapters that examine Welby’s first year at Lambeth, sixteen pages of photographs and incorporates much of the text of the earlier book, substantially expanded, revised and updated.

< /td>
英文概要: How did life evolve on Earth? The answer to this question can help us understand our past and prepare for our future. Although evolution provides credible and reliable answers, polls show that many people turn away from science, seeking other explanations with which they are more comfortable. In the book Science, Evolution, and Creationism, a group of experts assembled by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine explain the fundamental methods of science, document the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, and evaluate the alternative perspectives offered by advocates of various kinds of creationism, including "intelligent design." The book explores the many fascinating inquiries being pursued that put the science of evolution to work in preventing and treating human disease, developing new agricultural products, and fostering industrial innovations. The book also presents the scientific and legal reasons for not teaching creationist ideas in public school science classes. Mindful of school board battles and recent court decisions, Science, Evolution, and Creationism shows that science and religion should be viewed as different ways of understanding the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other and that the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policy makers, and parents who seek to understand the basis of evolutionary science, this publication will be an essential resource.

代理商:大苹果 FORMING AND CENTERING: FOUNDATIONAL ASPECTS OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
by KENNETH M. MOFFETT
页数:312    定价:美元   上传日期:2017-6-23
< /td>
英文概要: Nearly every work of architecture can be characterized by specific approaches to forming and centering. An awareness of these “underpinnings” would facilitate a more informed approach to architectural design problems, as well as a deeper understanding of the central issues (and flaws) embodied by completed works of architecture. But the addressing of such topics has generally remained multifarious and diverse: more in the nature of a collection of independent issues than an overarching analytical argument. In this book, fresh looks at such issues are assembled and recast into a fully integrated narrative, based on two foundational and complementary aspects of architectural design: those that give shape and those that give focus―forming and centering.

The author uses an equally weighted interplay of discussion and diagram, with over 450 illustrations throughout the book. In addition, the text includes many links to further information online in the form of narratives, photographs, delineations, and contextual views.
