Understanding Statistics in the Behavioral Sciences Book Excerpt:

Based on over 30 years of successful teaching experience in this course, Robert Pagano's introductory text takes an intuitive, concepts-based approach to descriptive and inferential statistics. He uses the sign test to introduce inferential statistics, empirically derived sampling distributions, many visual aids, and lots of interesting examples to promote student understanding. One of the hallmarks of this text is the positive feedback from students -- even students who are not mathematically inclined praise the text for its clarity, detailed presentation, and use of humor to help make concepts accessible and memorable. Thorough explanations precede the introduction of every formula, and the exercises that immediately follow include a step-by-step model that lets students compare their work against fully solved examples. This combination makes the text perfect for students taking their first statistics course in psychology or other social and behavioral sciences.

Terra Incognita Book Excerpt:

Boon or blight? Ann Bowman and Michael Pagano define "vacant land" broadly, to include everything from brownfields (environmentally contaminated land) through trashed lots and abandoned buildings to greenspace (parks, community gardens, etc.). Terra Incognita takes a fresh look at what they believe can be the ultimate urban resource. Beyond the common studies of the influence of market forces, it explores how these areas are affected by the decisions of local governments, and then shows how vacant land can be a valuable strategic asset for localities. Terra Incognita derives from what--until now--has been the lack of substantial information about the amount and the diversity of urban vacant land. This book is based on an unprecedented survey sent to all U.S. towns with a population greater than 50,000, and contains data previously unavailable. Three cities were studied in greater depth for detailed case studies: the greater Phoenix and Seattle areas and Philadelphia-Camden. A number of other cities are cited frequently, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Oklahoma City, among many others. Identifying the fiscal, social, and development imperatives that drive the decisions local officials make about using vacant land, Bowman and Pagano pay particular attention to the varying dynamics of sales, property, and income taxes, and conclude with a model for making strategic decisions about land use based on a city's priorities.

The Whole World s Watching Book Excerpt:

Preventing climate change need not bankrupt the world. Decarbonizing the economy will not only halt global warming, but also improve the lifestyles of all the world's people. The dynamics of industry are about to undergo a radical change. Investment is set to flow to an entirely new range of solutions that offer the world clean and reliable power and energy. The solutions to the world's most serious problems exist now. In The Whole World's Watching the authors explain how money can be channeled into the technology that will preserve the lifestyles we currently enjoy and create a new era of economic growth. This is a book that proposes real, concrete solutions. Environmentalists and politicians will not stop climate change from occurring: industry will and it will happpen a lot sooner than we think. Global warming is real and not a problem that will disappear on its own. This book explains why it is now time to mobilize the world's financial markets to work for the good of mankind. The money to finance the changes necessary to prevent climatic mutation should come from Wall Street, instead of Washington or Berlin. In order to prevent Helsinki from becoming a summer holiday destination, the world will have to ante up $500 billion a year. It is a problem that will impact on a whole range of industries and affect the lives of everyone in the industrial world. A whole new breed of investment brokers will be created and these "green bankers" will inherit the earth.

Half serious Rhymes Book Excerpt:

Byron, in Don Juan, called Pulci (1432Ã?Â?Ã?±84) Ã?Â?Ã?«sire of the half-serious rhymeÃ?Â?Ã?Â-, and modelled his style on PulciÃ?Â?Ã?Â-s major work, the Morgante. The phrase identifies the ambivalent quality of PulciÃ?Â?Ã?Â-s verse, which was his distinctive legacy to the Ã?Â?Ã?«romantic epicÃ?Â?Ã?Â- of the renaissance, a genre he effectively initiated. Half-Serious Rhymes examines the nature of that ambivalence, tracing its origins in the circumstances in which Pulci wrote and the conflicting expectations of his audience at a time of rapid cultural change; more generally, it seeks to increase our understanding of PulciÃ?Â?Ã?Â-s poetic technique, which inevitably brings it into the debate about his relation to and use of his sources (most conspicuously the anonymous Orlando Lauren-Ziano).
