Mathematics for the Environment shows how to employ simple mathematical tools, such as arithmetic, to uncover fundamental conflicts between the logic of human civilization and the logic of Nature. These tools can then be used to understand and effectively deal with economic, environmental, and social issues. With elementary mathematics, the book seeks answers to a host of real-life questions, including: How safe is our food and will it be affordable in the future? What are the simple lessons to be learned from the economic meltdown of 2008–2009? Is global climate change happening? Were some humans really doing serious mathematical thinking 50,000 years ago? What does the second law of thermodynamics have to do with economics? How can identity theft be prevented? What does a mathematical proof prove? A truly interdisciplinary, concrete study of mathematics, this classroom-tested text discusses the importance of certain mathematical principles and concepts, such as fuzzy logic, feedback, deductive systems, fractions, and logarithms, in various areas other than pure mathematics. It teaches students how to make informed choices using fundamental mathematical tools, encouraging them to find solutions to critical real-world problems.

The Radical Wrong Lies Our Founding Fathers Never Told Us

This is a hard-hitting response to false statements about our nations values and ideals by rigid radical right-wing extremists. It unmasks their deceptions by using the actual words of the founding fathers—both brief quotations and longer passages. It pays tribute to the America you always knew was hidden behind smokescreens of rigid partisan ideological rhetoric and tells how to get it back. The spirits of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Samuel Adams and others walk through these pages, telling you what they themselves said and meant. Throughout, the author asks you to think for yourself rather than accept his views or those of any party or partisan. This engaging work bares the origins of the widening gap between rich and poor, tells how religious imperialists are imposing their views on everyone, and lets the founding fathers speak directly to all that. It moves through the years to let you hear the thoughts and sentiments of notable Americans of the 19th and 20th Centuries. It examines the Warfare State’s never-ending aggression and beggaring of our nation’s treasury, and the twisted view of liberty that places freedom for corporations above freedom for people. It reviews women’s and African-American’s past and present struggles for freedom. Remarks by historic and contemporary humorists lend a lighter touch. The book’s three parts are: Democracy in Crisis; Dimensions of Our Concerns; and Heal Yourself, Heal the Nation, Heal The World. Each chapter is arranged around a topic such as liberty, justice, equality, and other foundation-stones of democracy that are under siege today. Each starts with an orienting paragraph, moves into the quotations that are its central feature, then provides the author’s comments and solutions. It challenges you to help rescue the America that most of us know and loved from the quicksands of right-wing ideology that threaten it today.

The power of political blogs in American politics is now evident to anyone who follows it. In Typing Politics, Richard Davis provides a comprehensive yet concise assessment of the growing role played by political blogs and their relationship with the mainstream media. Through a detailed content analysis of the most popular political blogs--Daily Kos, Instapundit, Michelle Malkin, and Wonkette--he shows the degree to which blogs influence the traditional news media. Specifically, he compares the content of these blogs to four leading newspapers noted for their political coverage: The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Times. He explains how political journalists at these papers use blogs to inform their reportage and analyzes general attitudes about the role of blogs in journalism. Drawing on a national survey of political blog readers, Davis concludes with a novel assessment of the blog audience. Compact, accessible, and well-researched, Typing Politics will be an invaluable contribution to the literature on a phenomenon that has reshaped the landscape of political communication.

The Death And Life Of The Great American School System

A passionate plea to preserve and renew public education, The Death and Life of the Great American School System is a radical change of heart from one of America’s best-known education experts. Diane Ravitch—former assistant secretary of education and a leader in the drive to create a national curriculum—examines her career in education reform and repudiates positions that she once staunchly advocated. Drawing on over forty years of research and experience, Ravitch critiques today’s most popular ideas for restructuring schools, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and the feckless multiplication of charter schools. She shows conclusively why the business model is not an appropriate way to improve schools. Using examples from major cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, and San Diego, Ravitch makes the case that public education today is in peril. Ravitch includes clear prescriptions for improving America’s schools: leave decisions about schools to educators, not politicians or businessmen devise a truly national curriculum that sets out what children in every grade should be learning expect charter schools to educate the kids who need help the most, not to compete with public schools pay teachers a fair wage for their work, not “merit pay” based on deeply flawed and unreliable test scores encourage family involvement in education from an early age The Death and Life of the Great American School System is more than just an analysis of the state of play of the American education system. It is a must-read for any stakeholder in the future of American schooling.
