The Qualls Concise English Grammar (2nd Edition)is a text that treats specifically of North American English. American-Canadian English-ACE-is both the native dialect of the predominant majority (almost 74%) of native English speakers, and is the standard for International Business. ACE is the oldest dialect of English, preserving capabilities and distinctions of vocabulary that have been lost in British English and other dialects. ACE is, in fact, closer (particularly in grammar and pronunciation) to the language of Shakespeare than is modern British English. This grammar is written to the traditional standards of English teaching, in which understandability and correctness took precedence over the pseudo-psychology of undisciplinable self-esteem-ism. The grammar starts with a quick, high-level survey of the English language, aspects of its history and dialects. Then it presents schemas of the parts of speech and aspects of each that will be treated in the text. The grammar itself proceeds through each part of speech, starting with general descriptions and progressing to more detailed points and explanations. After this, aspects of the sentence are covered, followed by concise rules for capitalization and punctuation. Within the section for each part of speech and for the sentence are given points of correct or suggested usage. Copious examples are given for each description, rule or suggestion. The final part of the text covers Structural analysis of sentences and the clauses of which they are constructed. Parsing is treated first, with parsed selections taken from the examples given in the Grammar portion of the text. After that, extensive instructions are given for traditional diagramming and for an updated adaptation of traditional diagramming called Qualls Concise Diagramming. QCD is built on the constructs of Reed/Kellogg diagramming, but incorporates improvements, in particular to representation of compound and complex components that too often resulted in indistinct representation or in spaghettification of the traditional diagrams. This book is an excellent study aid for the higher levels of grade school, for middle school, high school and even college students. It is vital for anyone whose job depends on the quality and effectiveness of their use of English, that is, all those in business, in broadcasting and those involved in writing, whether that be informal, commercial or literary. The book's extremely thorough presentation of diagramming will please those Americans who have become frustrated with the horrible decline both in standards of teaching materials and in the thoroughness of grammatical instruction. These will want to get copies to give to those friends and family members preparing for college entrance tests or for jobs that are highly language influenced or dependent.

Community Capitalism

"Vexed!" Every American's "Bitch List", "Community Capitalism"—market-driven, community-centric, entrepreneurial capitalism—lays out the problems confronting Capitalism, those threatening once again to destroy the economic well-being of the American Nation and all of its allies and associates in Western and World Civilization. From "the Stock Market" to derivatives to banks to lawyers in politics to patenting intangibles to educational failures to unions, "Community Capitalism" lays bare the issues: the internals, the problems and the illogical, human-destructive hubris of profit-before market, divine-right "Greed Capitalism." All American legislation (and that of Western Europe, too) of the past couple of decades has favored the big corporations while putting ever more insufferable demands on small businesses. At the same time, the programs of the first eight years of the century have helped to destroy American education by forcing it into what can only be called Stalinist regimentation. No one is taking responsibility for the multi-billion dollar (and euro) financial fiascos forced on the taxpayers. This has hit the American and the Greek people with taxation imposed without their consent for actions they never agreed to-the gambling that resulted in those horrendous fees. To get the world out of this condition, "Community Capitalism" proposes a basic rethinking, and redirected application of the strengths of Capitalism, to return to community-enriching, stable, progressive commerce allied with the human-centered methods of traditional, pre-"Spreadsheet-Capitalism," pre-derivative-deranged business sensibilities. The primary concept around which this is based is that of "Fiducium," a name coined to encapsulate the spirit of fiduciary responsibility, extended into all aspects of human endeavor. Eduard Qualls calls not only on his advanced business degree, but on his extensive Humanities, historical and linguistic/cultural education, heightened and honed by the experience bestowed by his almost 30 successful years within the computer science industry. Yet it was also his experience of being misused and mal-used by the mindless machinations of fatally financial-operative, mindless mega-corporate America that spurred him to organize within this volume an exposition of that damnable, destructive dysfunction he has been witnessing as it has metastasized during these past 12+ years into the consumptive calamity we must all now contend against. This book will please neither the ultra-conservative nor the ultra-liberal. But it will ring true to all those who in free and generous equanimity love their families, their neighbors and neighborhoods, their commmunities, and their Nation-indeed, all those who cherish the fond hope of a more human, more humane world of opportunity for themselves, their children, and the future of their communities. In this book Mr. Qualls gives voice to all the people in the Western World who are utterly, angrily exasperated with the way the economy and sociable life are being wrecked by wantons, gamblers and wastrels, yet who must remain quiet, silently feeding that frustration because of fear of losing their jobs if they speak out. Yes, he's "Vexed!" And you should be, too!

In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials. Innovative, authoritative and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature has established itself as a leader in the field. The full anthology comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes. The two-volume Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Concise Edition provides an attractive alternative to the full six-volume anthology. Though much more compact, the concise edition nevertheless provides instructors with substantial choice, offering both a strong selection of canonical authors and a sampling of lesser-known works. With an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, accessible and engaging introductions, and full explanatory annotations, the concise edition of this acclaimed Broadview anthology provides focused yet wide-ranging coverage for British literature survey courses. The second edition of this volume includes Chaucer’s “To Rosamond,” an expanded selection from Sidney’s Astrophil and Stella, and additional material from Elizabeth I. The new edition also offers an expanded selection from Paradise Lost as well as Pope’s Essay on Criticism and a new Contexts section on transatlantic literary currents.

Among the works now included for the first time in the concise edition are Chaucer’s The Prioress’s Tale; the York Crucifixion play; more poems from Sidney’s Astrophil and Stella; an expanded section of writings by Elizabeth I, more poems by Lady Mary Wroth, and an expanded selection of work by Margaret Cavendish. The literatures of Ireland, Gaelic Scotland, and Wales are now much better represented, and a selection of work by Laboring Class Poets is now included. There are also new contextual materials—including a substantial section on “Transatlantic Currents.” In the case of several authors and texts (among them The Four Branches of the Mabinogi, Julian of Norwich, Sir Thomas Malory, and Phillis Wheatley), the new edition will incorporate substantial improvements that have been made in the new editions of the period volumes published in recent years. As before, the Concise edition includes a substantial website component, providing instructors with a great degree of flexibility. For the first time, a selection of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales will be available online in facing-column format (with versions in modern English included opposite the original text).
