Marsha de la O's voice is a kind of free jazz, musically rich with LA noir and the vastness of metropolitan Southern California. Marsha de la O's Black Hope won the New Issues Prize from the University of Western Michigan and an Editor's Choice Award. She has taught Spanish-speaking children in Los Angeles and Ventura County for thirty years.

This book shows, from start to finish, how microeconomics can and should be used in the analysis of public policy problems. It is an exciting new way to learn microeconomics, motivated by its application to important, real-world issues. Lee Friedman's modern replacement for his influential 1984 work not only brings the issues addressed into the present but develops all intermediate microeconomic theory to make this book accessible to a much wider audience. Friedman offers the microeconomic tools necessary to understand policy analysis of a wide range of matters of public concern--including the recent California electricity crisis, welfare reform, public school finance, global warming, health insurance, day care, tax policies, college loans, and mass transit pricing. These issues are scrutinized through microeconomic models that identify policy strengths, weaknesses, and ideas for improvements. Each chapter begins with explanations of several fundamental microeconomic principles and then develops models that use and probe them in analyzing specific public policies. The book has two primary and complementary goals. One is to develop skills of economic policy analysis: to design, predict the effects of, and evaluate public policies. The other is to develop a deep understanding of microeconomics as an analytic tool for application--its strengths and extensions into such advanced techniques as general equilibrium models and pricing methods for natural monopolies and its weaknesses, such as behavioral inconsistencies with utility-maximization models and its limits in comparing institutional alternatives. The result is an invaluable professional and academic reference, one whose clear explanation of principles and analytic techniques, and wealth of constructive applications, will ensure it a prominent place not only on the bookshelves but also on the desks of students and professionals alike.

For centuries, settled peoples have contemplated nomads with fascination and envy, or with disdain and fear. Both Americans and the British have had an obsession with nomadic peoples, stemming from their own wanderlust and admiration for the unfettered life. In Search of Nomads centers on four regions that are rich in nomadic culture—the Arabian peninsula with its Bedouin, the Sahara with its Moors and Tuareg, the mountain ranges of southern Iran with its migratory pastoral tribes, and the steppes of Central Asia with its Mongol horsemen and Tartar descendants. Author John Ure has traveled with all of these peoples and provides a brief account of the special characteristics and history of each group. However, one of the most appealing aspects of the book is the insight it provides into the often-eccentric British and American observers who chose to seek out and travel with nomads. Some were exiles from nineteenth-century high society, some were footloose adventurers like T. E. Lawrence; some were distinguished literary figures like Vita Sackville-West, while others were notable scholars like Gertrude Bell. In short, the visitors were often odder than the exotic peoples they visited, and John Ure brings both to life with skill and humor.
Das Buch ist eine problemorientierte Einführung in die (nicht nur germanistische) Literaturwissenschaft; kein positivistisches Lernbuch, aber auch keine bloße Methodenrevue. Gestützt auf Erfahrungen aus langjähriger Lehre versucht der Autor, anhand anschaulicher Beispiele grundsätzliche Perspektiven und Fragestellungen der Literaturwissenschaft zu entfalten. Das Spektrum der Themen reicht von der antiken Rhetorik und Poetik über Begründungsfragen der modernen Literaturwissenschaft und exemplarische Strukturanalysen zu epischen, lyrischen und dramatischen Texten bis hin zu aktuellen Fragestellungen wie Lesesozialisation und "Literatur in der Medienkonkurrenz". Die leserfreundliche Anlage des Textes, mit erläuternden Marginalien, Begriffsdefinitionen, Schaubildern und Abbildungen soll den Studienanfängern den Einstieg erleichtern und sie ermuntern, die vielfältigen weiterführenden Anregungen und Hinweise selbständig zu verfolgen. Diesem Ziel dient (als Ergänzung zum Buch) dieses "Vertiefungsprogramm zum Selbststudium".
