Jose Luis Bermudez introduces the philosophy of
psychology as an interdisciplinary exploration of the
nature and mechanisms of cognition. Philosophy of
Psychology charts out four influential -pictures of the
mind- and uses them to explore central topics in the
philosophical foundations of psychology, including the
relation between different levels of studying the
mind/brain, the nature and scope of psychological
explanation, the architecture of cognition, and the
relation between thought and language.

The book considers issues relating to accountability in
social research by juxtaposing seven ways of approaching
the issues and by moving toward the development of a
particular approach to the earning of trust on the part
of researchers. A conception of the practice and
assessment of discursive accountability is presented as
an option for consideration. The book grapples with the
issue of accountability in social research by considering
the extent to which and ways in which it is addressed in
a number of different positions regarding the practice of
social science. The focus of the book is on reviewing
discourses around the practice of `professional- inquiry,
with a view to highlighting differing arguments around
the question of what it might mean to assess researchers-

Empire identifies a radical shift in concepts that form
the philosophical basis of modern politics, concepts such
as sovereignty, nation, and people. Hardt and Negri link
this philosophical transformation to cultural and
economic changes in postmodern society-to new forms of
racism, new conceptions of identity and difference, new
networks of communication and control, and new paths of
migration. More than analysis, Empire is also an
unabashedly utopian work of political philosophy, a new
Communist Manifesto. Looking beyond the regimes of
exploitation and control that characterize today-s world
order, it seeks an alternative political paradigm-the
basis for a truly democratic global society.

In this portrait of world trade before the age of
European Hegemony, Janet Abu-Lughod examines global
commercial connections among a large number of cities
between the years 1250 and 1350. The work offers a
reinterpretation of global economic evolution, arguing
that the European world system of the sixteenth century
had its origins in an earlier system dominated by Middle
Eastern, Indian, and Chinese trade. Abu-Lughod argues
that there was no inherent historical necessity shifting
the system in favour of the West or preventing eastern
societies from becoming the progenitors of a modern world
system. To support her thesis, she explores the gradual
articulation of the thirteenth century-s incipient world
system, its slow demise in the early to mid-fourteenth
century and the reticulation of its fragments into an
emerging European world system in the 1500s.

This is the first book to document the origins and early
history of environmentalism, concentrating especially on
its hitherto unexplained colonial and global aspects. It
highlights the significance of Utopian, physiocratic and
medical thinking in the history of environmental ideas.
The book shows how the new critique of the colonial
impact on the environment depended on the emergence of a
coterie of professional scientists, especially in the
Dutch, French and English maritime empires. The prime
importance of the oceanic island -Eden- as a vehicle for
new conceptions of nature is emphasised, and the
significance of colonial island environments in
stimulating conservationist notions is underlined,
revealing how, for the first time, the limitability of
local and global resources could be recognised.

Beginning with a fascinating, concise history of
technological progress, Mokyr sets the background for his
analysis by tracing the major inventions and innovations
that have transformed society since ancient Greece and
Rome. What emerges from this survey is often surprising:
the classical world, for instance, was largely barren of
new technology, the relatively backward society of
medieval Europe bristled with inventions, and the period
between the Reformation and the Industrial Revolution was
one of slow and unspectacular progress in technology,
despite the tumultuous developments associated with the
Voyages of Discovery and the Scientific Revolution.

Theorists have attributed unequal growth rates among
nations to political factors or to the unequal
distribution of land. In "Favorites of Fortune", a group
of international economists and historians pit economic
history against the assumptions of the classical economic
theory of natural growth. Their explanations consider the
factors of technology, entrepreneurialism, and paths to
economic growth, but each reflects an ideological wave of
explanation that has marked the last 200 years. These
studies approach a common concern with assurance and a
variety of techniques, all interrelated, all leaving room
for amendment and contradiction.

The Industrial Revolution brought into being a distinct

great surge of economic growth was balanced against
severe constraints on the opportunities for expansion,
revealing an intriguing paradox. This book, published to

The visual elements in a workplace have a profound effect
on its employees. Most organizations, however, do not
recognize the power of design, art, sculpture, and
graphics to create the vibrancy and energy that can drive
productivity and innovation. "Seeing Is Believing"
explains how to use these elements to improve
communications, connect individual tasks to
organizational goals, and greatly enhance employee
commitment and job satisfaction.

In this book, Anne Porter explores the idea that mobile
and sedentary members of the ancient world were integral
parts of the same social and political groups in greater
Mesopotamia during the period 4000 to 1500 BCE. She draws
on a wide range of archaeological and cuneiform sources
to show how networks of social structure, political and
religious ideology, and everyday as well as ritual
practice, worked to maintain the integrity of those
groups when the pursuit of different subsistence
activities dispersed them over space.

your foreign investment policy so restrictive? How come
your hotels are world class, but the roads leading to
them are so potholed? Why don-t you lower your voice when
you make fun of your politicians? And why do you control
the price of oil and cable TV?

America has a huge problem. It faces four major
challenges, on which its future depends, and it is
failing to meet them. In What-s Wrong with America?,
Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum analyze those
challenges - globalization, the revolution in information
technology, the nation-s chronic deficits, and its
pattern of energy consumption - and spell out what needs
to be done now to rediscover America-s power and prowess.
They show how America-s history, when properly
understood, provides the key to coping successfully and
explain how the paralysis of the US political system and
the erosion of key American values have made it
impossible to carry out the policies the country needs.
What-s Wrong with America? is both a searching
exploration of the American condition today and a rousing
manifesto for American renewal.
