The Fabulous Ekphrastic Fantastic!: Essays
"A river's edge, if approached too close, can sweep a body beyond itself." In The Fabulous Ekphrastic Fantastic!, Miah Jeffra perfects apostrophe as canticle, a host of heroes beckoning the reader a knee deeper into the waters of another selfhood, Madonna, Mary Shelley, Felix Gonzalez Torres, Plato, and Jeffra's mother among them. At once gossamer and gauze, Jeffra explores the nature of gender, sexuality, aesthetics, and love, taking a tiny hammer to the stability of the limits of perception, troubling the tether between perception and memory. At once memoir and cultural criticism, The Fabulous Ekphrastic Fantastic! discovers itself as a book about forgiveness, family, and the truths we find in "the lightness of a door," "the probability of a radio," the long line between one story and another.
The Helper's Journey: Empathy, Compassion, and the Challenge of Caring (2nd edition)
Dale G. Larson
The power of empathy and compassion is revolutionizing our approach to person-centered counseling and caregiving. The new edition of The Helper’s Journey builds on themes of altruism and purpose in life presented in Larson’s bestselling first edition. Drawing from the field of positive psychology, it explores the brighter side of human nature and helping. Real-world caregiver experience in hospice and palliative care, oncology, and counseling bring to light fresh perspectives. New research on empathy, altruism, resilience, the helping relationship, and empathetic counseling skills are illuminated through clinical vignettes and verbatim helper disclosures. This book charts a clear path to clinical effectiveness and personal growth for providers of compassionate, person-centered care.
The Journey Before Us: First-Generation Pathways from Middle School to College
More students are enrolling in college than ever before in U.S. history. Yet, many never graduate. In The Journey Before Us, Laura Nichols examines why this is by sharing the experiences of aspiring first-generation college students as they move from middle-school to young adulthood. By following the educational trajectories and transitions of Latinx, mainly second-generation immigrant students and analyzing national data, Nichols explores the different paths that students take and the factors that make a difference. The interconnected role of schools, neighborhoods, policy, employment, advocates, identity, social class, and family reveal what must change to address the “college completion crisis.” Appropriate for anyone wanting to understand their own educational journey as well as students, teachers, counselors, school administrators, scholars, and policymakers, The Journey Before Us outlines what is needed so that education can once again be a means of social mobility for those who would be the first in their families to graduate from college.
Travel the Holy Land
The book gives a brief description of the places I traveled during the trip to the Holy Land in Israel and Jordan. This book is different from most other books in the following ways. (1) The book contains many colorful photos, taken by myself who personally experienced these places. (2) Its description is brief for each key site and the entire order is according to a typical Holy Land route, enabling readers and travelers to use it as a quick reference alongside their travel. (3) It includes Biblical verses for almost all the sites, which helps readers to relate these sites with the events in Biblical history. (4) Names in Chinese are also provided for most of the sites for readers who read both English and Chinese.
Understanding Intellectual Property Law (4th Edition)
Tyler Ochoa, Shubha Ghosh, and Mary LaFrance
There have been a number of important developments in U.S. intellectual property law since the third edition of Understanding Intellectual Property Law was published. Congress enacted the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 to provide a federal civil cause of action for misappropriation of trade secrets for the first time. It also enacted the Music Modernization Act of 2018, which extends the compulsory license for musical works by creating a blanket license for digital music providers and provides federal protection to sound recordings fixed before February 15, 1972. And, of course, courts continue to work through the implications of earlier statutory revisions, such as the landmark America Invents Act of 2011. The Supreme Court has remained active in reviewing intellectual property cases during the past four years, deciding eighteen patent cases, four copyright cases, and five trademark cases. In addition, the federal Courts of Appeals decided more than 1000 patent cases, 230 copyright cases, and nearly 300 trademark and false advertising cases during that time. Having been updated to reflect this new material, the fourth edition of Understanding Intellectual Property Law covers all of the intellectual property areas and issues likely to be addressed in an intellectual property survey course.
Where the Time Goes
Diane Jonte-Pace and David Pace
During the many months of David’s chemotherapy and radiation, Diane Jonte-Pace turned to a long-postponed project: arranging the unlabeled and unsorted photographs, stored in shoeboxes throughout the house, that she and her husband, photographer David Pace, had taken during the five decades of their relationship. Organizing prints and slides dating from the early 1970s when the couple first met, provided an opportunity to reflect on their shared past and to grieve or mourn the losses they expected. The project led to the collection of the photographs in this book, weaving a story of aging and change, love and hope.
Technically and stylistically, this book incorporates most of the forms of photography available over the last five decades: 35mm single-lens reflex cameras, Brownie Hawkeyes, Polaroids and single-use throw-away cameras, professional cameras like the Pentax 6×7, Sinar 4×5, Deardorff 8×10, full frame digital Canons, and, more recently, iPhones.
The story told by these photographs belongs not only to Diane and David. It provides a window onto the past for an entire generation. “Where the Time Goes” recounts how the post-war generation turned the camera upon itself, and narrates a story of youth, aging, and change through illness, hope, and recovery.
Women’s Rights and Law Codes in Early India, 600 BCE–570 ACE
Sita Anantha Raman
This book looks at the first eight Sanskrit law codes written in India, between 600 BCE and 570 ACE. It focuses on the legal, religious and ethical customs which were codified in this period and their impact on the social and political life of women.
The volume analyzes texts such as the Dharma Sūtras, the Arthaśāstra, the Manu Smŗiti, the Yājňyavalkya Smŗiti, and Nārada Smŗiti, amongst others. It studies discourses on justice, conduct, virtues and duties, and how early laws were used to systematize patriarchy and the varna caste system in South Asia. It examines how patrimonial laws and male property rights highlighted social anxieties about female chastity and varna lineage, which led to the subordination of women and the lower varnas. These anxieties are most evident in codes from the late Vedic and early classical eras when diverse new settlers arrived upon the subcontinent. At this time, kings decentralized governance and allowed local groups to practice communal laws, while they meted out court justice with a specific law code. As the state became prosperous from trade conducted by merchants of diverse castes, sects, and classes, and social peace was ensured by officials from disparate backgrounds, kings began to rely upon a law code that aspired for equity above intolerance. These chapters examine heterodox Therāvada Buddhism and Jainism, their origins in the oligarchic state, their impact on the royal Sanskritic state, as seen in canonical literature. They especially focus on women’s roles in heterodox sects, and the emergence of new spaces for women, as such changes were adopted in disparate ways and degrees by other South Asian communities.
The volume will be a useful resource for students and researchers of history, women and gender studies, social anthropology, sociology, and law. It will also serve as an information guide for readers who are interested in the political, and social life of women in early India.
A brief course in modern math for programmers
The book has no theorems and almost no proofs. The purpose of the book is to expand the reader's imagination and to open the gates to the beautiful world of mathematics—at the same time keeping in mind the practical usability of its ideas and notions in our daily coding practice.
ARM Assembly for Embedded Applications (5th Edition)
This text uses the GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain for program development on Windows, Linux or OS X operating systems, and is supported by a textbook website (http://www.engr.scu.edu/~dlewis/book3/) that provides numerous resources including PowerPoint lecture slides, programming assignments and a run-time library. ARM Assembly for Embedded Applications is a text for a sophomore-level course in computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering that teaches students how to write functions in ARM assembly called by a C program. The C/Assembly interface (i.e., function call, parameter passing, return values, register conventions) is presented early so that students can write simple functions in assembly as soon as possible. The text then covers the details of arithmetic, bit manipulation, making decisions, loops, integer arithmetic, real arithmetic using floating-point and fixed-point representations, composite data types, inline coding and I/O programming. What’s new: This 5th edition adds an entirely new chapter on floating-point emulation that presents an implementation of the IEEE floating-point specification in C as a model for conversion to assembly. By positioning it just after the chapter on the hardware floating-point unit, students will have a better understanding of the complexity of emulation and thus why the use of fixed-point reals presented in the following chapter is preferred when run-time performance is important. Numerous additional material has been added throughout the book. For example, a technique for mapping compound conditionals to assembly using vertically-constrained flowcharts provides an alternative to symbolic manipulation using DeMorgan’s law. Visually-oriented students often find the new technique to be easier and a natural analog to the sequential structure of instruction execution. The text also clarifies how instructions and constants are held in non-volatile flash memory while data, the stack and the heap are held in read-write memory. With this foundation, it then explains why the address distance between these two regions and the limited range of address displacements restrict the use of PC-relative addressing to that of loading read-only data, and why access to read-write data requires the use of a two-instruction sequence.
Behavioral Finance: The Second Generation
Behavioral finance presented in this book is the second-generation of behavioral finance. The first generation, starting in the early 1980s, largely accepted standard finance’s notion of people’s wants as “rational” wants—restricted to the utilitarian benefits of high returns and low risk. That first generation commonly described people as “irrational”—succumbing to cognitive and emotional errors and misled on their way to their rational wants. The second generation describes people as normal. It begins by acknowledging the full range of people’s normal wants and their benefits—utilitarian, expressive, and emotional—distinguishes normal wants from errors, and offers guidance on using shortcuts and avoiding errors on the way to satisfying normal wants. People’s normal wants include financial security, nurturing children and families, gaining high social status, and staying true to values. People’s normal wants, even more than their cognitive and emotional shortcuts and errors, underlie answers to important questions of finance, including saving and spending, portfolio construction, asset pricing, and market efficiency.

Campaign Ethics: A Field Guide 2019
Although public service is a noble calling, the process of getting there is not always so noble. As we all know, politics can be an ugly, nasty business. Pretty much everyone who runs for public office believes that he or she is ethical, however in the heat of the battle it is easy to have ethical lapses encouraged by such rationalizations as, “If I don’t win, I won’t be able to do all of the good things that I have planned for my community” or, “That other guy is bad news and if he wins the community will suffer.” In other words, we argue, the ends justify the means. The purpose of this guidebook is to give tips and advice on how to run an ethical political campaign in order to maintain the integrity of our electoral process and the trust of the people in those who would govern. The book will cover the primary areas in which your campaign will likely have to make ethical choices. The guide will also provide nuts and bolts advice on how to create an ethical campaign organization. This book is called a field guide because it is designed to be a ready reference for when you confront the inevitable ethical dilemmas on the campaign trail.
Click2Save REBOOT: The Digital Ministry Bible
Keith Anderson and Elizabeth Drescher
Six years ago, the original Click2Save's breakthrough introduction to adopting social media for ministry energized outreach and was embraced across denominations by seminaries and churches, as well as by both graduate and undergraduate religious studies and theology programs.

Design of reinforced concrete buildings for seismic performance: practical deterministic and probabilistic approaches
Mark Aschheim, Enrique Hernández-Montes, and Dimitrios Vamvatsikos
The costs of inadequate earthquake engineering are huge, especially for reinforced concrete buildings. This book presents the principles of earthquake-resistant structural engineering, and uses the latest tools and techniques to give practical design guidance to address single or multiple seismic performance levels.
It presents an elegant, simple and theoretically coherent design framework. Required strength is determined on the basis of an estimated yield displacement and desired limits of system ductility and drift demands. A simple deterministic approach is presented along with its elaboration into a probabilistic treatment that allows for design to limit annual probabilities of failure. The design method allows the seismic force resisting system to be designed on the basis of elastic analysis results, while nonlinear analysis is used for performance verification. Detailing requirements of ACI 318 and Eurocode 8 are presented. Students will benefit from the coverage of seismology, structural dynamics, reinforced concrete, and capacity design approaches, which allows the book to be used as a foundation text in earthquake engineering.
Doing Theology as If People Mattered
Eduardo Fernandez and Deborah Ross
This book narrates a reflexive account of the "doing" of contextual theology at the Jesuit School of Theology (JST) of Santa Clara University. The collection explores practicing contextual theology in the classroom and beyond, in service, international immersions, interreligious dialogue, and mission.
This collection narrates the story of contextual theology at JST: how the School came to select this theological method and how it guides the vision and mission of the School; how contextual theology shapes pedagogy and work in the classroom; how contextual theology and education flourish in ministerial praxis in the local intercultural San Francisco Bay Area; and more.
Edward W. Blyden's Intellectual Transformations: Afropublicanism, Pan-Africanism, Islam, and the Indigenous West African Church
Harry N. K. Odamtten
Distinguished by its multidisciplinary dexterity, this book is a masterfully woven reinterpretation of the life, travels, and scholarship of Edward W. Blyden, arguably the most influential Black intellectual of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It traces Blyden’s various moments of intellectual transformation through the multiple lenses of ethnicity, race, religion, and identity in the historical context of Atlantic exchanges, the Back-to-Africa movement, colonialism, and the global Black intellectual movement. In this book Blyden is shown as an African public intellectual who sought to reshape ideas about Africa circulating in the Atlantic world. The author also highlights Blyden’s contributions to different public spheres in Europe, in the Jewish Diaspora, in the Muslim and Christian world of West Africa, and among Blacks in the United States. Additionally, this book places Blyden at the pinnacle of Afropublicanism in order to emphasize his public intellectualism, his rootedness in the African historical experience, and the scholarship he produced about Africa and the African Diaspora. As Blyden is an important contributor to African studies, among other disciplines, this volume makes for critical scholarly reading.
Federal Administrative Adjudication Outside the Administrative Procedure ActTide the Administrative Procedure Act
This project examines federal administrative adjudication that is not subject to the adjudicatory provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (i.e., non-APA adjudication) and takes the form of a sourcebook for agencies, Congress, the federal judiciary, and the public. It draws on the Federal Administrative Adjudication project and database and builds on the Evidentiary Hearings Not Required by the Administrative Procedure Act project. It provides a comprehensive overview and cross-cutting analysis of non-APA adjudication. It examines, among other things, the structure of the initial adjudication and any appeals; pre-hearing, hearing, and post-hearing procedures; the types of adjudicators used; and the case loads at individual agencies. It relies in part on case studies to flesh out the overarching findings.
Illumination of the Hidden Meaning Vol. 2: Yogic Vows, Conduct, and Ritual Praxis
David B. Gray
This is the second volume of the annotated translation of Tsong Khapa’s Illumination of the Hidden Meaning (sbas don kun gsal), a magnificent commentary on the Cakrasamvara Tantra.
This is the first English translation of this important work, which marked a milestone in the Tibetan understanding and practice of the Indian Buddhist tantras. It covers the vows, observances, and conduct of the initiated yogi, particularly in relation to the yoginis, whose favor he must cultivate. It describes in great detail the rites of the tradition, including homa fire sacrifice and the uses of the mantras of the mandala’s main deities. The author provides a trilingual English-Tibetan-Sanskrit glossary.
Together with the present author’s related publications in this series—including a translation of the Cakrasamvara root tantra (2007) and critical editions of its Sanskrit and Tibetan texts (2012), and the first volume of this master Tibetan commentary (2017)—the reader will have the first full study of this important tantra available in English.
Internet Law: Cases & Materials (2019 Edition)
This is a casebook for students learning Internet Law, but other people interested in Internet Law may find it interesting. The book covers jurisdiction, contracts, trespass to chattels, intellectual property (copyright, trademarks and domain names), pornography, defamation and other information torts (including limits on web host liability), privacy, spam and the legal issues applicable to blogs and social media. Please note that some of the printed images may be a little blurry. While I’ve done my best to make the hard copy version of the book useful to you, the hard copy is missing some features, such as color images, clickable links and keyword searching.

Journal of Moral Theology Vol. 8 Special Issue #1
James F. Keenan and Matthew J. Gaudet
This volume is intended to fill lacunae in the fields of Christian ethics and higher education studies. Prior to this volume, there were a few scattered scholarly pieces on Christian ethics and academic contingency, but the vast majority of work done on the topic limited to journalism and advocacy. Our hope is that this volume bot h engenders further conversation on the ethics of contingency and becomes the scholarly foundation of many future conversations.
Leadership in higher education
James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner
Drawing on the same pioneering research that formed the foundation of their classic bestseller The Leadership Challenge (over 2.7 million copies sold), James Kouzes and Barry Posner offer a set of leadership skills and practices that will make a significant difference in every area of higher education—faculty, administration, library services, career counseling, auxiliary services, campus safety, and more. It’s about the behaviors that leaders, regardless of their position, use to transform values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, segments into solidarity, and risks into rewards.
Kouzes and Posner tell the leadership story from the inside and move outward, describing it first as a personal journey and then as mobilizing others to want to do things they have never done before. The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership is the operating system for this adventure. Leadership in Higher Education explains the fundamental principles that support these practices and provides case examples of people in higher education who demonstrate each one.
A core theme that weaves its way through all the chapters is that, whether it’s one to one or one to many, leadership is a relationship between those who aspire to lead and those who choose to follow. We need leaders who can unite us and ignite us. This book lights the way.
lmaginación Global del Lugar y la Educación Ambiental
Sara Soledad Garcia
Este trabajo abarca mas de una década de colaboración con un numeroso grupo de investigadores y educadores en los Estados Unidos y México. Los estudios ambientales se han intensificado en la ultima década, debido a los cruciales cambios climáticos globales. Con base a la nueva critica teórica sobre esta disciplina, el presente estudio, iniciado con la sequía, y la necesidad de educar a las comunidades afectadas por los devastadores resultados, ha contribuido a profundizar los esfuerzos de la educación ambiental con la base principal de una ética colaborativa, llevada a la praxis hacia el cambio social.
Mediated Millennials Vol: 19
Jeremy Schulz, Laura Robinson, Aneka Khilnani, John Baldwin, Heloisa Pait, Apryl A. Williams, Jenny Davis, and Gabe Ignatow
Sponsored by the Communication, Information Technologies, and Media Sociology section of the American Sociological Association (CITAMS), Volume 19 of Emerald Studies in Media and Communications draws on global case studies that examine media use by millennials. By bringing together contributors and case studies from four continents to examine millennial digital media practices, the volume charts out multiple dimensions of Gen Y’s digital media engagements: smartphone use among Israelis, the activities of Brazilian youths in LAN houses, selfies in the New Zealand context, and American millennials engaged in a variety of digital pursuits ranging from seeking employment, to content creation, to gaming, to consuming news and political content. Through these case studies we see parallels in the mediated millennial experience across key digital venues including Twitter and YouTube, and MMOs. None-the-less, contributors also prompt us to keep in mind the importance of those millennials without equal access to resources who must rely on public venues such as libraries and LAN Houses. Across these venues and arenas of practice, the research provides an important collection of research shedding important light on the first generation growing up with the normative expectation to perform digital identity work, create visual culture, and engage in the digital public sphere.
Metaphysics of Morality
This is a book on metaethics—in particular, an inquiry into the metaphysical foundations of morality. After carefully exploring the metaphysical commitments, or lack thereof, of the leading versions of moral anti-realism, Kulp develops a new and in-depth theory of moral realism. Starting with the firm recognition of the importance of our common sense belief that we possess a great deal of moral knowledge—that, for example, some acts are objectively right and some objectively wrong—the book goes on to examine the metaphysical grounds of various skeptical responses to this perspective. In great part, the book is devoted to developing a version of realist metaethics: specifically, developing in detail realist theories of moral truth, moral facts, and moral properties.Concluding with the rejection of prominent contemporary forms of moral anti-realism, Kulp presents a rigorous non-naturalistic theory of moral realism, and a vindication of the basic commitments of commonsense moral thought.
