Archaeology has always been marked by its particular care, obligation, and loyalty to things. While archaeologists may not share similar perspectives or practices, they find common ground in their concern for objects monumental and mundane. This book considers the myriad ways that archaeologists engage with things in order to craft stories, both big and small, concerning our relations with materials and the nature of the past. Literally the "science of old things," archaeology does not discover the past as it was but must work with what remains. Such work involves the tangible mediation of past and present, of people and their cultural fabric, for things cannot be separated from society. Things are us. This book does not set forth a sweeping new theory. It does not seek to transform the discipline of archaeology. Rather, it aims to understand precisely what archaeologists do and to urge practitioners toward a renewed focus on and care for things.
For thousands of years, the geography of Eurasia has facilitated travel, conquest and colonization by various groups, from the Huns in ancient times to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the past century. This book brings together archaeological investigations of Eurasian regimes and revolutions ranging from the Bronze Age to the modern day, from Eastern Europe and the Caucasus in the west to the Mongolian steppe and the Korean Peninsula in the east. The authors examine a wide-ranging series of archaeological studies in order to better understand the role of politics in the history and prehistory of the region. This book re-evaluates the significance of power, authority and ideology in the emergence and transformation of ancient and modern societies in this vast continent.

Perhaps more than ever before, today's art therapists are being encouraged to apply their knowledge base to the development of strategies for community building, and art-based approaches to preventing and treating emotional problems. In many settings, individual counseling or psychotherapy is no longer financially feasible. Art-based group therapy allows art therapists to work with many more clients than would be possible in individual sessions. Moreover, art-based group process also has unique qualities that can often serve as the treatment of choice for many clients.

Biological control, the management of pests by the use of living organisms, has a long history of application to agriculture around the world. However, the effective use of beneficial organisms is constrained by environmental, legal, and economic restrictions, forcing researchers to adopt increasingly multi-disciplinary techniques in order to deploy successful biological control programs. It is this complex process, including the mindset and the social environment of the researcher as well as the science being pursued, that this book seeks to capture. Chapters reveal the experiences of scientists from the initial search for suitable control agents, to their release into ecosystems and finally to the beneficial outcomes which demonstrate the great success of biological control across diverse agro-ecosystems. Drawing together historical perspectives and approaches used in the development of biological control as well as outlining current debates surrounding terminology and differential techniques, Biological Control: A Global Perspective will be a valuable resource.
Braille Literacy Curriculum presents strategies for incorporating braille into the total curriculum. The book is an outcomes based curriculum, which emphasizes learning media assessments and supplies an extensive list of practical resources. It has been tested in the classroom by experienced braille teachers and reviewed by independent readers. It has been used successfully with students who are blind, students who have low vision, and students who have multiple impairments. The book provides lots of new ideas for experienced teachers as well as practical tips and techniques for new teachers. Braille Literacy Curriculum is attractively bound in a sturdy and easy-to-use ring binder with space for teachers to add their own notes and student information. Braille Literacy Curriculum by Diane P. Wormsley speaks directly to teachers. It is the product of a collaborative effort, which began when the teachers at Overbrook School for the Blind said they wanted a curriculum that would address the challenges faced by all of their students. The collaboration continued through the writing and editing phases, as Overbrook teachers used the curriculum in their classrooms and other braille experts reviewed the manuscript and shared their suggestions with the author. The book is a primary resource for meeting the braille requirements set forth in reauthorization of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and has a philosophical grounding in the National Agenda for the Education of Children and Youths with Visual Impairments, Including Those with Multiple Disabilities. Mostly, however, it is a curriculum of resources, references, and tips and techniques for making braille come alive for the student.
Wormsley (program director, Professional Preparation Program in Education of Children with Visual and Multiple Disabilities, Pennsylvania College of Optometry) describes an approach to braille reading and writing instruction based on students' individual interests, needs, and goals. She offers general guidelines for a functional approach to braille literacy, then offers case studies of how the program can be modified for at-risk learners. The approach works with children and adults learning braille for the first time. B&w photos of instructional materials are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The fundamental challenge facing business leaders is to drive performance into the future--the dynamics of strategy. To tackle this effectively, they need a clear understanding of what causes performance to improve or deteriorate and what power they have to change this trajectory for the better. Without this understanding, they risk making poor choices about their future--failing to exploit promising opportunities, pursuing unachievable aims, or falling victim to competitive and other threats. Building Strategy and Performance Through Time sets the agenda for building business strategy in powerful, actionable, and accessible terms. It gives executives clear frameworks for answering three fundamental questions: * Why is our business performance following its current path? * Where is it going if we carry on as we are? * How can we design a robust strategy to transform this future? The existing strategy tools most widely used help guide management's choices about where to compete--which customers to serve, with what products and services, and how to deliver those products and services to those customers effectively and profitably. While this choice is important, it is not often changed in any fundamental way; having found a reasonably strong and profitable position on these issues, few firms will, or should, set off in a new direction. But there is still much to be done to deliver that strategy, powerfully and sustainably over time. Many decisions need to be made, continually and holistically, across all functions of the business and adapted as conditions change from month to month and year to year. Pricing, product development, marketing, hiring, service levels, and other decisions cannot be made in isolation but must take into account other choices being made, elsewhere and at different times. Building Strategy and Performance Through Time explains a reliable, practical method, known as strategy dynamics, that creates a living picture of how an enterprise actually works and delivers performance. This picture shows exactly where the levers are that management controls and how to choose what to do, when, and how much, to accomplish your specific goals. It shows, too, how the same approach can be used to defeat competitors, cope with other outside forces, and keep delivering performance.

On a good day in the business ethics classroom discussion charges forward; students have read the assigned case study, they're engaged by the conflict and want to work through it. Then, there's a bad day: students didn't bother to do the reading and the hour sags listlessly. The key to going the first way is case studies that students want to read, and The Business Ethics Workshop by James Brusseau provides them with reality and engagement.
