A People & A Nation: A History of the United States

by Carol Sheriff David M. Katzman Mary Beth Norton

Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, this text is an economically priced version of A People and a Nation, 7/e (copy;2005). The Dolphin Edition offers readers the complete text while limiting the number of photos and maps. All volumes feature a paperback, two-color format that appeals to those seeking a comprehensive, trade-sized history text. Like its hardcover counterpart, the Dolphin Edition preserves the text's basic approach to American history as the story of all Americans. The text is known for its emphasis on social history, well-respected author team, attention to race and racial identity, and balanced and engaging narrative. Significant revisions to the Seventh Edition of A People and a Nation are reflected in the Dolphin Edition. Co-authors Fredrik Logevall and Beth Bailey bring new scholarship on international relations and American culture to Volume II. Both authors contribute significant content on diversity, environmental issues, and other matters specific to the western United States. Volume II has been reorganized-with particular attention to Chapters 30-33-so that world and domestic events are treated in the same chapter. For example, coverage of the Vietnam War and protests against it are now addressed in Chapter 30. This reorganization allows for a more chronologically organized text and the integration of new scholarship. Chapter-based Links to the World connect American history to global events and provide web links for further research on topics such as international treaties and the AIDS epidemic. All chapters have been thoroughly updated to incorporate cutting-edge scholarship and recent events. For available instructor and student supplements, see catalog entry for Norton et al. , A People and a Nation, Seventh Edition.

Pepito The Brave

by Scott Beck

"Huge sums have been spent on water and sanitation services in Tanzania, but much of that investment is standing idle in the country, producing little or no water for the intended beneficiaries. A major question is whether any of the investment can be salvaged to reduce the burden of water gathering on the population. " --From Tanzania: Social Sector Review Tanzania's social indicators remain among the poorest in the world. This report describes the trends in the social sectors and analyzes the factors that influence these trends. These trends include the performance of the economy, government social sector spending and policy, household behavior and incomes, and demographic trends. Findings from the surveys and case studies are synthesized to provide a comprehensive picture of the demand for and supply of education, health, water and sanitation, nutrition, and family planning services. The report discusses the situation and trends in the social sector and identifies ways that the government, the private sector, and households can use their respective resources most effectively.

Perrine's Literature: Structure, Sound, and Sense

by Greg Johnson Thomas R. Arp Donna Carlson Tanzer

An authoritative bestseller for over fifty years, PERRINE'S LITERATURE: STRUCTURE, SOUND, AND SENSE continues to be an essential and highly effective introduction to literature for today's students. Written for students beginning a serious study of literature, the text introduces the fundamental elements of fiction, poetry, and drama in a concise and engaging way, addressing vital questions that other texts tend to ignore, such as "Is some literature better?" and "How can it be evaluated?" A remarkable selection of classic, modern, and contemporary readings serves to illustrate the elements of literature and ensure broad appeal to students of diverse backgrounds and interests. Updated with new stories, poems, and plays by some of the finest authors of any era, the twelfth edition remains true to Perrine's original vision while addressing the needs of a new generation of students.

Perrine's Sound and Sense: An Introduction to Poetry (12th Edition)

by Greg Johnson Thomas R. Arp

The book works to balance the classic with the contemporary, to represent a wide diversity of poets, and to emphasize the importance of the close reading of poetry as the avenue to enjoy and appreciate it. Although there are many flourishing approaches to poetry and its effects, we believe that the initial step must be understanding the elements of poetry through which it presents itself. This book is addressed to the student who is beginning a serious investigation of poetry. We have attempted to offer that student a sufficient grasp of the nature and variety of poetry, some reasonable means for reading it with appreciative understanding, and a few primary ideas of how to evaluate it. One important principle established in the earliest editions is the need for conciseness and compactness, so that the book will have a friendly, welcoming appeal and will not seem daunting in its comprehensiveness. In matters of theory, in an introductory textbook some issues are undoubtedly simplified, but none we hope seriously so, and some more sophisticated theoretical approaches have had to be excluded in the interests of space. Another principle is that the elements of poetry are presented in a progression in which each new topic builds on what preceded it. The separate chapters gradually introduce the student to the elements of poetry, putting the emphasis always on how and why: How can the reader use these elements to get at the meaning of the poem, to interpret it sensibly, and to respond to it adequately? Why does the poet use these elements? What values have they for the poet and reader?
