Handbook of the Sociology of Racial and Ethnic Relations
Publisher: Springer | ISBN: 0387708448 | edition 2007 | PDF | 494 pages | 11,9 mbThe study of racial and ethnic relations has become one of the most studied aspects in sociology and sociological research. In both North America and Europe, many traditional cultures are feeling threatened by immigrants from Latin America, Africa and Asia.Sociology is at the hub of the human sciences concerned with racial and ethnic relations. Since this discipline is made of multiple paradigms and methodological orientations it has been able to make relevant contributions to disciplines ranging from individual psychology, social psychology, and psychiatry, to economics, anthropology, linguistics, cultural studies, health care delivery and education.

Ivan Dole, Leslie Taggart, "Activate: College Reading"
W,,worth P...ng | 2011 | ISBN: 1413033156 | 736 pages | PDF | 21 MB Taking a holistic approach to developmental reading, ACTIVATE: COLLEGE READING is the first book in a 3-book series. It guides students through a stepped and incremental approach, activating background or prior knowledge as many of the skills students need to become stronger readers are skills they already possess and use on a daily basis. Often using popular media as a springboard, Dole and Taggart show students how the skills used when watching television or movies can easily transfer to their reading. Reviewers have lauded the inclusion of varied, interesting readings that will stimulate students' interest in reading and will provide them with background knowledge needed for future college courses.

C. M. Woolgar, Dale Serjeantson, Tony Waldron - Food in Medieval England: Diet and Nutrition
Publisher: Oxf??rd Univ?µrsity Pr?µss | 2006-09-14 | ISBN: 0199273499 | PDF | 368 pages | 7.07 MBFood and diet are central to understanding daily life in the middle ages. In the last two decades, the potential for the study of diet in medieval England has changed markedly: historians have addressed sources in new ways; material from a wide range of sites has been processed by zooarchaeologists and archaeobotanists; and scientific techniques, newly applied to the medieval period, are opening up possibilities for understanding the cumulative effects of diet on the skeleton. In a multi-disciplinary approach to the subject, this volume, written by leading experts in different fields, unites analysis of the historical, archaeological, and scientific record to provide an up-to-date synthesis. The volume covers the whole of the middle ages from the early Saxon period up to c .1540, and while the focus is on England wider European developments are not ignored. The first aim of the book is to establish how much more is now known about patterns of diet, nutrition, and the use of food in display and social competition; its second is to promote interchange between the methodological approaches of historians and archaeologists. The text brings together much original research, marrying historical and archaeological approaches with analysis from a range of archaeological disciplines, including archaeobotany, archaeozoology, osteoarchaeology, and isotopic studies.
John R. Wolberg - Data Analysis Using the Method of Least Squares: Extracting the Most Information from Experiments
Publisher: S??ringer | 2006-02-10 | ISBN: 3540256741 | PDF | 264 pages | 6.55 MBThe preferred method of data analysis of quantitative experiments is the method of least squares. Often, however, the full power of the method is overlooked and very few books deal with this subject at the level that it deserves. The purpose of Data Analysis Using the Method of Least Squares is to fill this gap and include the type of information required to help scientists and engineers apply the method to problems in their special fields of interest. In addition, graduate students in science and engineering doing work of experimental nature can benefit from this book. Particularly, both linear and non-linear least squares, the use of experimental error estimates for data weighting, procedures to include prior estimates, methodology for selecting and testing models, prediction analysis, and some non-parametric methods are discussed.
