In today's pop culture, many use Darwin's teachings in an attempt to explain away the profound marvel of our existence as nothing more than the product of random accident. The Gilligan Principle by Steve Lee offers a critical rebuff to this philosophy, detailing both the impossible technical problems facing the formation of the many complex components of life by random means, while also discussing the detrimental effects this modern philosophy has had on society as a whole. Drawing upon fundamental scientific principles, hard logic and a range of discoveries that demonstrate the remarkable sophistication and elegance found in a living cell (e.g. DNA, "the world's smallest motor", hemoglobin, etc.), Lee underscores the impossibility of this oft quoted, yet vacuous "explanation" for life. Blending Scientific research with social commentary, The Gilligan Principle goes beyond the technical problems confronting Darwinism, focusing on the alarming rise in social dysfunction precipitated by a culture that embraces the "me-first", animal impulse paradigm for society. The Gilligan Principle is a must read for those interested in both the technical problems that sharply challenge the random accident explanation for life, as well as the alarming rise in social dysfunction now tearing our societies apart, and which now threatens to push modern civilization to a very dark end.

Civilizations rise, and they fall, often by their own hand. Ours, is no different... And this is how it happened. Living near a small town in Iowa, a young farm boy named Josh Peterson finds his life rocked by a series of reoccurring dreams. Considering them to be little more than the product of an overactive imagination, Josh finds himself jolted from reality one day as two figures suddenly emerge from these dreams in an effort to save his life. As the years pass, this event comes to shape Josh's life, preparing him for a crisis far beyond anything he had ever thought possible. In a world growing more dysfunctional with each passing year, he watches as greed and political corruption push civilization to the lip of an abyss, drawing him into the heart of this sweeping crisis. As things devolve to the point of no return, Josh discovers the men from his dreams are but messengers for something far beyond us which had anticipated this culminating event in all its misery, eons before the advent of modern man.

Deficit thinking refers to the notion that students, particularly low income minority students, fail in school because they and their families experience deficiencies that obstruct the leaning process (e.g. limited intelligence, lack of motivation, inadequate home socialization). Tracing the evolution of deficit thinking, the authors debunk the pseudo-science and offer more plausible explanations of why students fail.

The increasing resistance of bacteria to antibiotics, and pests to pesticides, threatens to undo some of the most remarkable advances made in public health and agriculture during the past century. Though the potential consequences of increased antibiotic and pesticide resistance are far reaching, regulatory efforts to address the problem are at a very early stage. Battling Resistance to Antibiotics and Pesticides moves such discussions forward by presenting cutting edge research and the first comprehensive application of economic tools to analyze how antibiotics and pesticides should be used to maximize their value to society. Laxminarayan and his contributors explore lessons from past experiences with resistance, especially in agriculture. They consider what incentives would be ideal for the individuals who prescribe or apply antibiotics and pesticides, and what would be ideal for the firms engaged in developing and producing these products. The chapters in this groundbreaking book reflect the fact that efforts to combat resistance will require contributions from a broad range of scholars and professionals, representing a broad range of expertise. The analysis demonstrates that, for all these participants, an understanding of economic issues is an essential complement to knowledge of medical or biological factors. The book provides economists with an overview of relevant scientific issues, as well as a variety of analytical approaches to studying the economics of resistance. It offers policymakers detailed analyses of the multiple dimensions of resistance and discusses the future strategies to combat and manage resistance. For professionals in medicine, public health, and agriculture, the book translates the economic approaches into usable guidance for daily practice and decisionmaking.

In this book Judith M. Hughes makes a highly original case for conceptualizing gender identity as potentially multiple. She does so by situating her argument within the history of psychoanalysis. Hughes traces a series of conceptual lineages, each descending from Freud. In the study Helene Deutsch, Karen Horney, and Melanie Klein occupy prominent places. So too do Erik H. Erikson and Robert J. Stoller. Among contemporary theorists Carol Gilligan and Nancy Chodorow are included in Hughes's roster. In each lineage Hughes discerns an evolutionary narrative: Deutsch tells a story of retrogression; Erikson names his epigenesis, and Gilligan continues in that vein; Horney's discussion recalls sexual selection; Stoller's and Chodorow's theorizing brings artificial selection to mind; and finally in Klein's work Hughes sees a story of natural selection and adds to it her own notion of multiple gender identities.

`Zeig and Munion have provided us with a lucid insight into the life and work of a 20th century giant, and it is a book full of human warmth and humour. I congratulate you who still have the adventure of exploring Milton H Erickson's story ahead of you' - Hypnos `This offering on Erickson does not set out to uncover new ground, but more to introduce one to Erickson (and the cases are so extraoridinary they are worth repeating anyway). It does this in a number of easy to read sections' - New Therapist `This book is an easily accessible primer for those who are new to studying Ericksonian methods.... its depth provides the reader with the experience of learning about the man, as well as the method' - Milton H Erickson Foundation Newsletter Milton H Erickson provides a unique insight into the life and experiences of this influential figure, and a clear account of his specific contributions to psychotherapy, both theoretical and practical. Erickson was the dominant force in legitimizing the use of clinical hypnosis. Through his research and practice, he developed a scientific understanding of hypnotic phenomena and devised many novel clinical applications. He took the view that psychotherapy should be formulated to meet the uniqueness of an individual's strengths and needs, rather than tailoring the person to fit a particular theoretical approach. His directive and strategic interventions contributed substantially to the development of brief therapy approaches such as strategic therapy, solution-focused therapy, and the interactional approach.
