 Textbook on Criminology    (New)
$55.25 AUD
Textbook on Criminology offers an engaging and wide-ranging account of crime and criminology, addressing the theoretical, practical, and political aspects of the subject. The clarity of approach makes it an ideal text for students wishing to gain a firm grasp of the fundamental issues, together with an appreciation of some of the complexities surrounding the study of criminology.

The author deals with the major questions of criminology, such as 'how do you define a crime?', 'why do people become criminals?', and 'how should we deal with criminals?'. Each question is studied from an objective and academic viewpoint and encourages greater social, political, and philosophical awareness of crime, criminals, and society's response to them. The text also maps out the changes in crime control and society's expectations in relation to crime control. For example, students will find the insightful chapter on terrorism and state violence to be of particular interest and relevance; established criminological theories are applied, and the author addresses issues such as political responses to terrorism and the reasons why people become terrorists.

The text is ideal both for students studying towards a degree in criminology, and students opting to study criminology as part of another subject, such as law.
 The Crystal Textbook    (New)
$23.35 AUD
The Crystal Textbook is laid out in two parts. Part I, "Working with Light and Crystals," establishes a foundation of how light works, along with asserting the need for discernment in understanding how crystals work. Part II, "Crystals" discusses individual crystals. It is set up alphabetically, thus providing the reader with an easy way to go directly to the discussion of a particular crystal. Ideally, the reader reads section one outright, then delves into crystals of interest at his leisure. Because divine light does all the work, some confusion naturally arises around which crystals contribute to which tasks. The sections on healing and negativity work toward an understanding of the qualities of light that could lead to the misconception that all crystals are healers, and that all crystals work with negativity. True enough perhaps, but crystals are specialized. A section entitled, "Crystal Specialization" is included to clarify the specific roles that crystals play by addressing the concept of specialization. Light is central to any understanding of how crystals work, so there is a section in Part I entitled, "Basic Characteristics of Light." Densification, fragmentation, and splitting are a few of the difficulties that happen to light frequencies as they take on physical density. Light has a number of basic characteristics that need to be explained before making sense of the way particular crystals work. The Crystal Textbook carries sufficient explanations of the relevant characteristics of light at the appropriate places to ensure that it stands alone. As part of "Working with Light and Crystals," there is a section on the 'Eleven-Chakra' system. Having this background information will help in synthesizing the knowledge of the Light Body layout and the roles played by Hematite, Kyanite, Calcite, and Selenite. Also included are sections on the rules of thumb for crystal colours, the nature of creativity, and the shortfall that plagues the quality of crystals. Not all aspects of crystals are so straight-forward that background information can be omitted. While most discussions of a given crystal are complete unto themselves, "Working with Light and Crystals" was placed at the front of the book because of its importance in fleshing out the reader's inventory of background knowledge. This section could have been included as an appendix, but would then have been after-the-fact. The section on cleansing, clearing, and empowering crystals is also placed in Part I to similarly elevate its importance and prevent its being missed. Unless the reader has attended my "Crystals' Light Workshop," references to the role of ions in water is likely to offer a new understanding of how crystals are cleansed. Ions are not the only topic in this section. The carpenter, politician, rocket scientist, truck driver, and biologist are highly specialized occupations. Each discipline bears its own very unique set of skills. One of the primary themes running throughout The Crystal Textbook is that crystals are also highly specialized. Each crystalline vibration is unique, and therefore, each crystal works in its own very specialized way. Each of the carpenter, politician, rocket scientist, truck driver, and biologist can very easily create new life to become a father or mother. They have a number of other common possibilities as well. Crystals, too, have common possibilities in the sense that the same light frequency can be attracted by a number of different crystals. Attributing the quality or action of the common frequency to one of the crystals, but not the others, provides only a partial truth. There is some crossover of qualities and actions because the light frequencies involved can crossover between different crystals. The complete story revolves around what else the crystals do. The complete story points to the specialization and uniqueness inherent to every different crystal.
 The De-Textbook    (New)

 Speak Mandarin, Textbook    (New)
$47.5 AUD
This is a thorough and expanded revision of Speak Chinese, by M. Gardner Tewksbury (1948), following two decades of classroom use.  The twenty-four lessons of the earlier text have been regrouped into twenty, with the original vocabulary of 750 items increased to 850.  Use of Speak Chinese disclosed a need for more exercises both for student use in preparing the lesson and for classroom use by the teacher; this revision therefore includes both a Student Workbook and a Teacher's Manual.The objective of the textbook is to present the basic structural patterns of colloquial Mandarin.  The vocabulary is used in a series of dialogues from everyday life.  No Chinese characters are used in this text; the Yale romanization is used throughout and the student's attention is concentrated on the new sounds, words, and patterns of the language.  The spoken language is written in polysyllabic "words," as they are normally spoken, and not as monosyllabic characters, which helps the student to acquire the rhythm of the phrase as well as the pronunciation of the syllable.

Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science free from value judgements; that settles disputes by testing hypotheses; that applies a pre-determined body of principles; and contains policy prescriptions supported by a consensus of professional opinion. The Economics Anti-Textbook argues that this is a myth - one which is not only dangerously misleading but also bland and boring. It challenges the mainstream textbooks' assumptions, arguments, models and evidence. It puts the controversy and excitement back into economics to reveal a fascinating and a vibrant field of study - one which is more an 'art of persuasion' than it is a science.

The Economics Anti-Textbook's chapters parallel the major topics in the typical text, beginning with a boiled-down account of them before presenting an analysis and critique. Drawing on the work of leading economists, the Anti-Textbook lays bare the blind spots in the texts and their sins of omission and commission. It shows where hidden value judgements are made and when contrary evidence is ignored. It shows the claims made without any evidence and the alternative theories that aren't mentioned. It shows the importance of power, social context and legal framework.

The Economics Anti-Textbook is the students' guide to decoding the textbooks and shows how real economics is much more interesting than most economists are willing to let on.
