THE CHANGING EARTH: EXPLORING GEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, Seventh Edition, is a member of a rare breed of texts written specifically for courses covering both physical and historical geology. Three interrelated themes (plate tectonics, organic evolution, and geologic time) help students understand that Earth is a complex, integrated, and continually changing system. In the new edition authors James S. Monroe and Reed Wicander integrate new content emphasizing the economic impacts of geology. Topics such as fracking, nuclear waste, and the threat of earthquakes are covered in new Geo-Impact boxes that stress real-world applications. Lauded for their clear writing style, the authors go beyond simply explaining geology and its processes; rather, they place that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing relevance, resources, and the environment. New Global Geoscience Watch activities help students learn how to use an extensive database of articles on geology that are updated several times a day and are available exclusively for users of this book.

PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH, Sixth Edition, doesn't just explain physical geology and its processes; it places that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing relevance, resources, and the environment. With this edition, the authors seek to answer two central questions, How does the planet work? and Why is this important to know? By discussing the unifying theory of plate tectonics in detail early in the text, the authors are able to link diverse material by this common thread, providing a global perspective of Earth and allowing students to recognize seemingly unrelated geologic phenomena as a continuum of interrelated events within a complete planetary system. In addition to providing students with an understanding of geology and its processes, the authors consistently demonstrate how geology relates to the human experience. By asking the question What would you do? throughout the text, students are encouraged to explore their reactions to particular situations. New Geology in Your Life sections address relevant student concerns, particularly in the areas of environment and energy. And a new penultimate chapter on Resources and the Fate of the Earth ties together many of the concepts of particular interest to students. This edition is fully integrated with the online student tutorial system Physical GeologyNow. Physical GeologyNow uses a series of chapter-specific diagnostic tests to build a personalized learning plan for each student, allowing students to focus their study time on specific areas of weaknesses. Each personalized learning plan directs students to specific chapter sections and concept-driven multimedia tutorials designed to augment their understanding.

"The movie idiom" is an apt moniker for the wide-ranging issues addressed in film studies courses and examined in Stanley's accessible volume. Organized within three parts---The Technical-Artistic, The Historical-Institutional, and The Critical-Cultural---chief concepts include technical advances, shooting and editing techniques, the collaborative aspects of production, film history and tradition, industrial developments, narrative structures, acting approaches, stereotypical representations, genre conventions, and censorship concerns. Stanley's analysis of significant movies illuminates essential points, connects readers with actual "moviemaking," and stimulates the reader's own creativity Still photographs, frame enlargements, diagrams, and publicity material directly related to the specific concepts under consideration appear throughout the text. Full explanations of key terms and concepts are contained in the glossary. "The real strength....is its conception of the "movie idiom"....bridging production, history, and textual analysis."---Amy Villarejo, Cornell University "For me, the best thing....is its readability. It deals with a wide range of material in an intelligent, literate way. Unlike other textbooks, it covers a limited number of significant films in greater depth."---Arthur Fried, Plymouth State College "The coverage of early censorship is marvelous, as good as I've read anywhere in summary form."---Robin Matthews, Golden West College "I couldn't be more impressed with this book. I especially love its scope and its ability to cover a great deal of territory in a small amount of space."---Tom Isbell, University of Minnesota, Duluth "Because of the stories, because of the writing, because of the problem solving examples, I think this book could be a loved piece of reading."---Robin Bates, St. Mary's College of Maryland
