They're Gen Xers, twenty and thirtysomethings, recent college graduates on their own for the first time, newlyweds, or brand-new parents. And whether they're slackers or strivers, many are clueless about politics, politicians, and the issues that truly matter to their generation. Maybe they just don't care. Or maybe no one is speaking to their issues. Meredith Bagby knows what that's like and has put together a survival manual to show them the ropes to the 2000 Election. Bagby, herself only twenty-six, reaches young readers by speaking their language. She's perfectly atuned to her generation and to the frustration, confusion, and apathy they feel toward Washington. Do politicians care about Generation X? Does Gen-X care about politics? In We've Got Issues Bagby tackles the political issues that should truly matter to young voters. She asks the important questions: How is the government spending your tax money? Whatever happened to welfare? What did you get from your public education? Is your neighborhood safe? Should you worry about retirement? And most importantly, who are you going to VOTE for? While rock-solid on the facts and stats (budget issues, crime rates, social security reform, etc.), Bagby presents readers with a no-nonsense account of the issues that matter to young people today and that will affect their not-so-distant futures.

This book deals with uncertainty and graphing in scientific discovery work from a social practice perspective. It is based on a 5-year ethnographic study in an advanced experimental biology laboratory. The book shows how, in discovery work where scientists do not initially know what to make of graphs, there is a great deal of uncertainty and scientists struggle in trying to make sense of what to make of graphs. Contrary to the belief that scientists have no problem “interpreting” graphs, the chapters in this book make clear that uncertainty about their research object is tied to uncertainty of the graphs. It may take scientists several years of struggle in their workplace before they find out just what their graphs are evidence of. Graphs turn out to stand to the entire research in a part/whole relation, where scientists not only need to be highly familiar with the context from which their data are extracted but also with the entire process by means of which the natural world comes to be transformed and represented in the graph. This has considerable implications for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education at the secondary and tertiary level, as well as in vocational training. This book discusses and elaborates these implications.

James Jones’s saga of life in the American Midwest, newly revised five decades after it was first published and including a new foreword by his daughter, Kaylie Jones After the blockbuster international success of From Here to Eternity, James Jones retreated from public life, making his home at the Handy Writers’ Colony in Illinois. His goal was to write something larger than a war novel, and the result, six years in the making, was Some Came Running, a stirring portrait of small-town life in the American Midwest at a time when our country and its people were striving to find their place in the new postwar world. Five decades later, it has been revised and reedited under the direction of the Jones estate to allow for a leaner, tighter read. The result is the masterpiece Jones intended: a tale whose brutal honesty is as shocking now as on the day it was first published. This ebook features an illustrated biography of James Jones including rare photos from the author’s estate.

"In Mingering Mike, Hadar recounts the heartfelt story of Mike's life and collects the best of his albums and 45s, presented in full color, finally bringing to the star the adoring audience he always imagined he had."--BOOK JACKET.

Since the time of Aristotle, various approaches have been offered to tackle what makes language stronger. Some approaches have focused on rhetoric, while others have given attention to logic. Still others have concentrated on dialectics. This book takes into account a full-fledged comprehensive model of analysis that brings these three perspectives together. Throughout, it investigates the presence of pragmatic criteria and the utilization of pragmatic strategies that make language stronger in the context of argumentation. Cogent argumentation is a pragmatic communicative interactional process that goes through stages, and is regarded as a communicative exchange of arguments. The cogency of these arguments is attained according to the availability of pragmatic criteria and the utilization of pragmatic strategies, and determined throughout the whole process of argumentation. The book will be of interest to anyone interested in the fields of pragmatics, communication, and politics, and will widen their understanding of the pragmatic structure and criteria which constitute cogent argumentation.
