Media Studies
While our fascination with fame intensified throughout the
twentieth century, the rise of the weekly gossip
magazine in the early 2000s confirmed and fueled our
popular culture’s celebrity mania. After a decade of diets
and dates, breakups and baby bumps, celebrity gossip
magazines continue to sell millions of issues each
week. Why are readers, especially young women, so
attracted to these magazines? What pleasures do they
offer us? And why do we read them, even when we
disagree with the images of femininity that they splash
across their hot-pink covers?
Andrea McDonnell answers these questions with the
help of interviews from editors and readers, and
her own textual and visual analysis.

In this first-ever biography of the woman many have
called our greatest living actress, the formidable
Vanessa Redgrave is at last revealed to us in all of her
different personas.
Who isn’t in awe of Vanessa Redgrave? Her career
on stage and screen remains vital and her
extreme-left political stands are still quite
controversial. This is the moment, and this is the
biography, to take stock of Vanessa Redgrave both
as actress and as political activist with a critical,
objective study of her life and career. It is also time
to account for her unparalleled achievements as an
empathetic actress of considerable genius.
Connected By Design: Seven Principles of
& Schools
Tackling an all-too-prevalent problem among kids with
8 smart, practical strategies.
Groundbreaking books have peered into the
psychology of bullying and the cultural climate
that—seemingly now more than ever—gives rise
to such cruelty and aggression. But few have been
able to synthesize what we know into 8 simple,
targeted “keys” that equip educators, professionals,
and parents with practical strategies to tackle the
issue head-on. This book answers that call.
Climate change seems to be an insurmountable
problem. Political solutions have so far had little impact.
Some scientists are now advocating the so-called ‘Plan
B’, a more direct way of reducing the rate of future
warming by reflecting more sunlight back to space,
creating a thermostat in the sky.
In this book, Mike Hulme argues against this kind of
hubristic techno-fix. Drawing upon a distinguished career
studying the science, politics and ethics of climate
change, he shows why using science to fix the global
climate is undesirable, ungovernable and unattainable.

Strategic Management
Nearly all of the members of the Fortune 500 followed a
similar plan and model to become the diversified
behemoths they are today: “horizontal integration,”
adding brands to dominate a category; or “vertical
integration,” investing in—and controlling—all stages of
the supply chain. But this growth formula has largely run
its course and is perhaps even counter-productive, in
this age of overabundant options in any product
category. What is the new growth strategy for the 21st
century? The book will show how to conceive of new
functionally-integrated products and services and
delineate their business strategy.

Optimize Exploration and Production with Data
Driven Models
Use big data analytics to efficiently drive oil and gas
exploration and production
Harness Oil and Gas Big Data with Analytics provides a
complete view of big data and analytics techniques as
they are applied to the oil and gas industry. Including a
compendium of specific case studies, the book
underscores the acute need for optimization in the oil
and gas exploration and production stages and shows
how data analytics can provide such optimization. This
spans exploration, development, production and
rejuvenation of oil and gas assets.
Explicitly, it is a nuts and bolts instruction on the market
approach that first and foremost teaches the
methodology from a practical perspective, showing step
by step how to (i) apply the approach in “real life”, i.e.
how to implement the market approach properly on a
standalone basis, but that also (ii) brings order into its
relationship with the established theory, that is, how to
reconcile the market approach with the discounted cash flow
approach (DCF), should that be required.

An exposé on how the rise of China will affect the
American way of life
The End of Cheap China is a fun, riveting, must-read book
not only for people doing business in China but for
anyone interested in understanding the forces that are
changing the world.
Many Americans know China for manufacturing cheap
products, thanks largely to the country's vast supply of
low-cost workers. But China is changing, and the glut of
cheap labor that has made everyday low prices possible
is drying up as the Chinese people seek not to make
iPhones, but to buy them.

In the last 20 years, the need for a financial expert to
act as a witness and consultant to litigating attorneys
has grown even more than litigation itself. Twenty years
ago, few certified public accountants or economists
offered litigation-related services; now, a large number
devote much of their practice to this area. To be
litigation service practitioners and accountants need to
learn or enhance their litigation skills, including the fine
points of their roles in trial preparation and testimony
presentation, testimony presentation, deposition, direct
examination, cross examination, understanding
Sarbanes-Oxley rulings, and fraud investions.
Auditing has hit the headlines over recent years, and for
all the wrong reasons, and in today’s environment, the
result of negligent auditing can be serious resulting in
sizeable fines and even withdrawal of audit registration
which can be costly in terms of fee income.

Made by Robots: Challenging Architecture at
Salvage Secrets Design & Decor: Transform
Matthias Kohler
Joanne Palmisano, Susan Teare
Although highly ambitious and sophisticated, most
attempts at using robotic processes in architecture
remain the exception; little more than prototypes or
even failures at a larger scale. This is because the
general approach is either to automate existing manual
processes or the complete construction process.
However, the real potential of robots remains
unexploited if used merely for the execution of highly
repetitive mass-fabrication processes: their capability for
serial production of non-standard elements as well as
for varied construction processes is mostly wasted.
A visually sumptuous idea book, showcasing an eclectic
array of interior design possibilities using salvaged
goods. Following up on her celebrated first Salvage
Secrets book, which Fine Homebuilding called "An
invaluable first step in the salvage-for-design journey,"
here salvage design guru Joanne Palmisano takes
readers further, exploring a wealth of smaller-scale
interior design and decor concepts. Bottle caps turned
into a kitchen backsplash, old bed springs reinvented
as candle holders, and a recycled shipping containerturned-guesthouse are just a few examples of the
innovative repurposing of second-hand items that
readers will discover.

Governance Reconsidered: How Boards,
How to Teach Adults: Plan Your Class, Teach
Susan R. Pierce, Stephen Trachtenberg
Dan Spalding
This book explores the topic of governance both as it is
being practiced in the current educational and economic
environment and how it might more effectively function.
It identifies key challenges facing trustees, presidents,
senior administrators and faculty and specify their
responsibilities. The book is grounded in the notion that
both the external and internal pressures facing colleges
and universities today demand that boards do more
than just come for lunch and bask in the prestige that
being a trustee brings to them, but rather that they
must add genuine value to the institution and must be
the president’s strategic partner.
How to Teach Adults provides a guide for new instructors
studying on their own and helps teacher-trainers in
college and graduate school programs cover what their
students need to know to effectively manage a
classroom. Examples of practical topics covered include
making sure new faculty include everything they need to
put in their class syllabus, or helping them write a quiz.
This reader-friendly book gives down-to-earth tips and
checklists on such topics as facilitating discussions and
connecting with adult students, includes a glossary on
teaching vocabulary, and covers administrative topics
such as choosing the right textbook.

New York City, 1964. A young woman is stabbed to death on
her front stoop-a murder the New York Times called "a frozen
moment of dramatic, disturbing social change." The victim,
Catherine "Kitty" Genovese, became an urban martyr,
butchered by a sociopathic killer in plain sight of thirty-eight
neighbors who "didn't want to get involved." Her sensational
case provoked an anxious outcry and launched a sociological
theory known as the "Bystander Effect."
The Scorpion's Sting: Antislavery and the
Surrounded by a ring of fire, the scorpion stings
itself to death. The image, widespread among
antislavery leaders before the Civil War, captures
their long-standing strategy for peaceful abolition:
they would surround the slave states with a cordon
of freedom. They planned to use federal power
wherever they could to establish freedom: the
western territories, the District of Columbia, the
high seas.
In Teaching with Heart: Poetry that Speaks to the Courage to
Teach a diverse group of ninety teachers describe the
complex of emotions and experiences of the teaching
life – joy, outrage, heartbreak, hope, commitment and
dedication. Each heartfelt commentary is paired with a
cherished poem selected by the teacher.
Kitty Genovese: The Murder, the Bystanders,
An irreverent trip through American culture by a critic
who "cracks jokes as easily as one would crack walnut
shells" (Washington Post).
Americans have long been fascinated with the
oddness of the British, but the English, says literary
critic Terry Eagleton, find their transatlantic
neighbors just as strange. Only an alien race would
admiringly refer to a colleague as "aggressive,"
use superlatives to describe everything from one's
pet dog to one's rock collection, or speak frequently
of being "empowered." In this pithy, warmhearted,
and very funny book, Eagleton melds a good
old-fashioned roast with genuine admiration for
his neighbors "across the pond."
Each and every day teachers show up in their
classrooms with a relentless sense of optimism. Despite
the complicated challenges of schools, they come to
and remain in the profession inspired by a conviction
that through education they can move individuals and
society to a more promising future.

Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks
George Green, Lizzy E. Kremer
David Downie
Turn your aspirations into reality.
Part adventure story, part cultural history, an
exploration of the phenomenon of pilgrimage along the
age-old Way of Saint James in France.
Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises,
David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk
across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue
Saint-Jacques and trekking 750 miles south to
Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes
seventy-two days on Roman roads and pilgrimage
paths-a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to
the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater. For Downie,
the inward journey met the outer one: a combination
of self-discovery and physical regeneration.
Want to take that idea or rough draft and turn it into a
brilliant novel? Writing a Novel & Getting Published For
Dummies, 2nd Edition, provides you with concept-tocontract advice you need to get it done. Our author
team — a creative writing lecturer (and published
author) and a top literary agent — provide you with the
