The Rise of the West, winner of the National Book Award for history in 1964, is famous for its ambitious scope and intellectual rigor. In it, McNeill challenges the Spengler-Toynbee view that a number of separate civilizations pursued essentially independent careers, and argues instead that human cultures interacted at every stage of their history. The author suggests that from the Neolithic beginnings of grain agriculture to the present major social changes in all parts of the world were triggered by new or newly important foreign stimuli, and he presents a persuasive narrative of world history to support this claim. In a retrospective essay titled "The Rise of the West after Twenty-five Years," McNeill shows how his book was shaped by the time and place in which it was written (1954-63). He discusses how historiography subsequently developed and suggests how his portrait of the world's past in The Rise of the West should be revised to reflect these changes. "This is not only the most learned and the most intelligent, it is also the most stimulating and fascinating book that has ever set out to recount and explain the whole history of mankind. . . . To read it is a great experience. It leaves echoes to reverberate, and seeds to germinate in the mind."—H. R. Trevor-Roper, New York Times Book Review

One Health (OH) is the conceptual and operational framework that links environment, food-producing organisms and human health. OH is a developing field, that deals with the multifaceted web of feed-backs and interactions among its components. In order to avoid “drowning into complexity”, priority issues should be identified, either for research and for risk analysis. To date OH approaches have frequently pivoted on infectious agents shared among animals and humans and the related problems, such as antibiotic resistance. Nevertheless, the OH scenarios include, and should increasingly include, environment-and-health problems. Food and environment do interact. Environment influences the living organisms that produce human food and, in the meanwhile, food production outputs influence the environmental quality; as for foods of animal origin, feed materials and practices are driving components of the environment-food interactions. In this book, we aimed at highlighting the importance of environment, chemical exposures and toxicological issues in the field of OH, as well as the need for multidisciplinary integration in order to support OH approaches into diseases prevention and health promotion.

In Europe’s Steppe Frontier, acclaimed historian William H. McNeill analyzes the process whereby the thinly occupied grasslands of southeastern Europe were incorporated into the bodies-social of three great empires: the Ottoman, the Austrian, and the Russian. McNeill benefits from a New World detachment from the bitter nationality quarrels of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century which inspired but also blinded most of the historians of the region. Moreover, the unique institutional adjustments southeastern Europeans made to the frontier challenge cast indirect light upon the peculiarities of the North American frontier experience.

"Refreshingly unpolemical and at times even witty, McNeill's book brims with carefully sifted statistics and brilliant details."—Washington Post Book World The history of the twentieth century is most often told through its world wars, the rise and fall of communism, or its economic upheavals. In his startling new book, J. R. McNeill gives us our first general account of what may prove to be the most significant dimension of the twentieth century: its environmental history. To a degree unprecedented in human history, we have refashioned the earth's air, water, and soil, and the biosphere of which we are a part. Based on exhaustive research, McNeill's story—a compelling blend of anecdotes, data, and shrewd analysis—never preaches: it is our definitive account. This is a volume in The Global Century Series (general editor, Paul Kennedy).

A much-needed look at innovative and effective methods for creating virtual learning environments for human services Web-Based Education in the Human Services reflects the vitality and diversity of Web-based courses currently delivered within human services. Unlike previous texts that have combined technologies such as Interactive Television (ITV) and two-way audio where Web involvement was minimal, this unique book focuses on Web-based models, tools, and techniques used in courses where the majority of the content is delivered online. The book’s contributors emphasize the social aspects of learning, examining topical areas not usually associated with Web-based education as they remind us of the need to move beyond the similarities between WBE and face-to-face (FTF) approaches. Web-Based Education in the Human Services documents a course delivery method coming of age in its desire to create virtual learning environments that incorporate a variety of techniques and strategies. These environments use concepts and tools beyond what packages such as WebCT currently offer, highlighting the power of designing a complete Web-based curriculum, rather than viewing each course separately. Many of the most successful approaches presented in this invaluable book don’t involve sophisticated tools or programming, but the creative design of interactive scenarios, emotional content, and feedback mechanisms that reinforce the instructor’s role as the crucial ingredient for success. Web-Based Education in the Human Services examines: adult learning theories teaching practice skills through Web-based technology how to bridge the gap between theory and practice faculty perceptions of the effectiveness of Web-based instruction compared to face-to-face instruction the accessibility of Web-based education the significance of emotion in learning Web-based delivery of a graduate professional training program the creation, delivery, and evaluation of a pilot course using Blackboard 6™ the development of a Web-based undergraduate child welfare course the use of Web-based video clips for counselor skills training the design, development, pilot, and revision of a Web-based social work practice course an online format for agency-based field instruction the design of a Web-based graduate program in counseling psychology and much more! Web-Based Education in the Human Services is an invaluable resource for social work and human services educators, including education, nursing, and psychology, Web-course developers, and college and university administrators.

Few things are more important to human survival than the fertility of the soils from which so much of our food comes. Yet few aspects of the relationship between human society and the environment get so little attention. This book, an environmental history of soils, explores some of the enormous variety in the ways that people have worked with, thought about, damaged, and restored soils. It also shows some of the ways in which soils, their properties and their histories, have influenced human affairs.Unfairly regarded as lacking charisma, soils are the substrate of human society. As this book shows, from northern Europe to southern Africa, and from Australia to Mesoamerica, from the palaeolithic to the present, their history is our history.
