52. Animal Domestication and Behaviour
This book is the culmination of a career-long search for information on the process of domestication and its biological effect on captive animals. The book is conveniently divided into six parts. The first part, titled ‘General Aspects’, discusses when and reasons why certain species were first domesticated, definitions of domestication, approaches to the study of domestication and pre-adaptations for life in captivity. The second part, ‘Genetic Mechanisms Influencing Domestication’, provides an overview of the mechanisms influencing changes in the gene pool during domestication. Part III, ‘Variation Under Domestication’, discusses the effects of domestication on genetic variability and phenotypic variation in behavior, structural traits and physiology. Part IV, ‘Adaptation to the Biological Environment’, concerns the many ways captive animals adapt to provision of food and water, the lack of predation, infectious diseases and parasites, the presence of humans and other animals. Part V, ‘Adaptation to the Physical Environment’, discusses the adaptations of animals to selected physical aspects of their captive environment, namely temperature, provision or absence of shelter and their use of space, which is sometimes severely limited. The last part deals with aspects of behavioral development in the captive environment not discussed in Parts IV and V, and how certain developmental processes influence their ability to survive and reproduce, both in captivity and when reintroduced into nature. The book ends with an overview of how the welfare of animals is affected by domestication and selected management techniques associated with captive animal husbandry.

54. A study of culture, belief and social structure
The purpose of this collection of essays is to create a framework for interdisciplinary analysis of social science. This begins with philosophy, which we take to be considered examination of the most simple of issues and definitions, though we construct a narrative of one social science, economics, and discuss the problems and difficulties it faces in the strength of supposedly reasoned thinking within it. We discuss a number of frameworks based on our methodology that springs from our criticisms of economic theory; debate structure and projected narrative, idea maps, conversation dynamics (both in terms of interaction as a game, e.g. through blocking strategies in conversation, and in terms of extensive form game theory as the multiple interaction of discussion), non-reductionist memetic-network life-world theory.

76. 2012 and the end of the world
Falsehoods are more powerful than facts. Matthew Restall and Amara Solari’s ingenious reconstruction of an amazing story—how Maya mathematics morphed into modern millenarianism—tells us a lot about the Maya. Their book tells us even more about ourselves: how and why, with every emotion from solemnity to derision, we respond to prophets who claim to foresee the end of time. Witty, scholarly, insightful, and fast-paced—this is the thinking person’s guide to the next pop-apocalypse. (Felipe Fernández-Armesto )
Well, here’s a much-needed breath of fresh, rational air. A welcome counterpoint to the seemingly endless end-of-the-world tomes, this well-documented, well-presented book (written by a pair of history professors) explores the origins of the alleged Mayan prediction that the world will end on December 21, 2012. For conspiracy buffs, the authors’ conclusions will prove decidedly disheartening. For example: they show that there is no hard evidence that the Mayan calendar has any predictive function; the Long Count calendar (which is key to the 2012 date) has a purely arbitrary start date, rendering the 2012 date meaningless; and (despite common misperception) the Mayans were not especially apocalyptic in outlook. The authors have a simple mission, ‘to explain what the 2012 fuss is all about,’ and they do it admirably. They don’t go as far as saying the world won’t end in December 2012, but they do say this: there is no evidence, either historical or textual, that the Mayans were predicting the end of the world in 2012 or any other year. (Booklist )
Media are full of doomsday predictions related to the Maya Long Count calendar end date, December 21, 2012, in today’s Western calendar. Restall and Solari take a serious look at Maya calendar development, archaeology, and history to seek the truth behind the so-called Maya doomsday prophecy, which adherents believe may forecast the end of the world. The authors see no evidence that Long Count calendar dates for the future, carved on stone monuments at Maya archaeological sites in Mexico and Central America, indicate predictions of doom. Their thorough examination of Maya carvings, images, and writings leads them to the conclusion that the preconquest Maya were not particularly millenarian. By contrast, their Spanish conquerors came from a culture steeped in eschatological thinking. The authors effectively provide scholarly evidence to back up their hypothesis that millenarianism probably came via the Spanish and is not intrinsic to the traditional Maya worldview and to debunk prophecies of doom. VERDICT This readable analysis based on credible scholarship is a needed and balanced counterpoint to the many sensationalist works on the Maya doomsday prophecy as 2012 approaches. Highly recommended for all seeking a reasoned perspective on Maya calendar systems. This e-book contains 161 pages.

77. Architecture of Thought
In Architecture of Thought, Andrzej Piotrowski maps and conceptually explores material practices of the past, showing how physical artifacts and visual environments manifest culturally rooted modes of thought and participate in the most nuanced processes of negotiations and ideological exchanges. According to Piotrowski, material structures enable people to think in new ways—distill emerging or alter existing worldviews—before words can stabilize them as conventional narratives.
Combining design thinking with academic methods of inquiry, Piotrowski traces ancient to modern architectural histories and—through critical readings of select buildings—examines the role of nonverbal exchanges in the development of an accumulated Western identity. Unlike studies that organize around the traditional scheme of periodization in history, Architecture of Thought uses an interdisciplinary approach to investigate a wide spectrum of cultural productions in different times and places.
Operating from the assertion that buildings are the most permanent record of unself-conscious beliefs and attitudes, it discusses Byzantium and the West after iconoclasm, the conquest and colonization of Mesoamerica, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation in Eastern Europe, the rise of the culture of consumerism in Victorian England, and High Modernism as its consequence. By moving beyond the assumption that historical structures reflect transcendental values and deterministic laws of physics or economy or have been shaped by self-conscious individuals, Piotrowski challenges the traditional knowledge of what architecture is and can be.

82. Brains: How They Seem to Work
For 50 years, the world’s most brilliant neuroscientists have struggled to understand how human brains really work. Today, says the author, the dominant research agenda may have taken us as far as it can–and neuroscientists may be approaching a paradigm shift.
In this highly personal book, the author reveals how we got to this point and offers his notion of where neuroscience may be headed next. Purves guides you through a half-century of the most influential ideas in neuroscience and introduces the extraordinary scientists and physicians who created and tested them.
The author offers a critical assessment of the paths that neuroscience research has taken, their successes and their limitations, and then introduces an alternative approach for thinking about brains. Building on new research on visual perception, he shows why common ideas about brain networks can’t be right and uncovers the factors that determine our subjective experience. The resulting insights offer a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
Why we need a better conception of what brains are trying to do and how
they do it
Approaches to understanding the brain over the past several decades may be at an impasse

85. Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings
We have personally investigated many of the cases in this book and have
talked to the witnesses for hours on end, probing for discrepancies in their
stories and trying to uncover emotional or psychological aberrations. It is our
studied conclusion that the great majority of these people are telling the
truth. Any one of them would make an acceptable and credible witness in a court
of law if called upon to testify about a more mundane matter. We are not
dealing with wild-eyed crackpots and publicity seekers. These are people very
much like yourself and, contrary to the hardboiled cynicism of New York
editors, most people are honest and they are particularly truthful when trying
to describe an unusual but possibly important event to police officers, newsmen, and scientific investigators. Many of these witnesses will be named in this book. They are real people, they exist, and you can check them out if you wish, although by now most of them are weary of the ridicule and nonsense that usually follows the act of reporting an unusual event. We have a theory. It is not very scientific but it is based upon the known facts. These creatures and strange events tend to recur in the same areas year after year, even century after century. This, in itself, indicates that the creatures somehow live in those areas which we call ”windows.” No matter what the source, something strange is engulfing our planet. It does not matter if these Unbelievables are coming from some distant star or from the fourth dimension. They are here. They
have been seen by many. Perhaps one day the Bronx Zoo will have a ”Mothman” and an
Abominable Snowman in cages next to the Komodo dragon. But until that day arrives, we must consider every possibility and every explanation. This e-book contains 154 pages

89. EFFECTIVE HUMAN RELATIONS - Interpersonal and Organizational Applications
This book is divided into six parts.
Part 1, “Human Relations: The Key to Personal Growth and Career Success,” provides a strong rationale for the study of human relations and reviews the historical development of this field. One important highlight of Chapter 1 is a detailed discussion of the major developments influencing behavior at work. This material helps students develop a new appreciation for the complex nature of human behavior in a work setting. The communication process—the basis for effective human relations—is explained from both an individual and organizational level in Chapter 2.
Part 2, “Career Success Begins with Knowing Yourself,” reflects the basic fact that our effectiveness in dealing with others depends in large measure on our self awareness and self-acceptance. We believe that by building high self-esteem and by learning to explore inner attitudes, motivations, and values, the reader will learn to be more sensitive to the way others think, feel, and act. Complete chapters are devoted to such topics as communication styles, building high self-esteem, personal values and ethical choices, attitude formation, and motivation.
Part 3, “Personal Strategies for Improving Human Relations,” comprises four chapters that feature a variety of practical strategies that can be used to develop and maintain good relationships with coworkers, supervisors, and customers. Chapters on constructive self-disclosure, learning to achieve emotional control, building stronger relationships with positive energy, and developing a professional presence are featured in this part of the text.
In Part 4, “If We All Work Together …,” the concepts of team building and conflict resolution are given detailed coverage. Because employers are increasingly organizing employees into teams, the chapter on team-building leadership strategies (Chapter 12) takes on major importance. The chapter on conflict resolution (Chapter 13) describes several basic conflict resolution strategies, discusses ways to deal with difficult people, and provides an introduction to the role of labor unions in today’s work force.
Part 5, “Special Challenges in Human Relations,” is designed to help the reader deal with some unique problem areas—coping with personal and work related stress, working effectively in a diverse work force, and understanding the changing roles of men and women. The reader is offered many suggestions on ways to deal effectively with these modern-day challenges.
Part 6, “You Can Plan for Success,” features the final chapter, which serves as a capstone for the entire text. This chapter offers suggestions on how to develop a life plan for effective human relations. Students will be introduced to a new definition of success and learn how to better cope with life’s uncertainties and disappointments. This chapter also describes the nonfinancial resources that truly enrich a person’s life.

91. Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of near death experience
The Most Compelling Scientific Evidence for Life Beyond Death Ever Compiled Evidence of the Afterlife shares the firsthand accounts of people who have died and lived to tell about it. Through their work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, radiation oncologist Jeffrey Long and his wife, Jody, have gathered thousands of accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world. In addition to sharing the personal narrative of their experiences, visitors to the website are asked to fill out a one hundred–item questionnaire designed to isolate specific elements of the experience and to flag counterfeit accounts. The website has become the largest NDE research database in the world, containing over 1,600 NDE accounts. The people whose stories are captured in the database span all age groups, races, and religious affiliations and come from all over the world, yet the similarities in their stories are as awe-inspiring as they are revealing. Using this treasure trove of data, Dr. Long explains how medical evidence fails to explain these reports and why there is only one plausible explanation—that people have survived death and traveled to another dimension. By scientifically studying the more than 1,300 cases shared with NDERF, I believe that the nine lines of evidence presented in this book all converge on one central point: There is life after death. The convergence of several lines of evidence— like the nine presented in this book—builds a much stronger case than only a single line of evidence.

enhance your life in all aspects and thus realize the genius of your instincts.
