For more than 50 years, Leslie Fiedler played a pivotal role in the development of American literary culture. Despite his often unacknowledged influence, the academy, intellectuals, and the general audience in America and abroad still read his work and draw on its concepts. The essays in The Devil Gets His Due reacquaint readers with the depth and breadth of Fiedler’s achievements. Tackling subjects ranging wildly from Dante, Ezra Pound, and Mary McCarthy to Rambo, Iwo Jima, and Jerry Lewis, these writings showcase Fiedler’s pioneering of an egalitarian canon that encompassed both “high” and popular literature, cinema, and history. As such, they show a powerful mind critiquing whole aspects of a culture and uncovering lessons therein that remain timely today. A lengthy introduction by Professor Samuele F. S. Pardini offers both context and history, with an in-depth profile of Fiedler and his career as both a literary critic and a public intellectual.

This new text provides a contemporary approach to college algebra, ideal for the many skeptical or apprehensive students who ask, When am I ever going to use this? The key phrase is Make It Real since the goal is to make the material relevant and understandable to today's college students. But many books make this claim--so how is COLLEGE ALGEBRA: MAKE IT REAL different? In other texts, which simply wrap real-world situations around problems, the context isn't needed to do the mathematics. Written by skilled and passionate teachers, this text uses real-world data sets and situations to draw out mathematical concepts. Students are immersed in familiar contexts--from golf course ratings to Egyptian pyramids--from which concepts emerge naturally, and then guided in using their understanding of those ideas to make sense of the mathematics. The real-world contexts are not only helpful for understanding procedures--they're necessary. The concept of a function, the use of modeling, and the thorough integration of real-world applications are integral to the text. If there's one new college algebra text crafted to stand up to a reality check comparison with your current book, this is it.

For one-semester courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry A friendly, engaging text that reveals connections between chemistry, health, and the environment Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition is the ideal resource for today's allied health students. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake engages students with her friendly presentation style, revealing connections between the structure and behaviour of matter and its role in health and the environment. Aiming to provide a better teaching and learning experience for instructors and students, the text highlights the relevance of chemistry through real-world examples. Activities and applications throughout the program couple chemistry concepts with health and environmental career applications to help students understand why course content matters. The text also fosters development of problem-solving skills, while helping students visualise and understand concepts through its engaging figures, sample problems, and concept maps. The 13th Edition expands on Karen Timberlake's main tenets: relevance, a clinical focus, educational research, and learning design. New applications added to questions and problem sets emphasise the material's relevance, while updated chapter openers with follow-up stories help students form a basis for making decisions about issues concerning health and the environment. New problem-solving tools in this edition, including Try It First and Connect, urge students to think critically about problem-solving while learning best practices.

Interpreting Basic Statistics gives students valuable practice in interpreting statistical reporting as it actually appears in peer-reviewed journals. New to the eighth edition:? A broader array of basic statistical concepts is covered, especially to better reflect the New Statistics.? Journal excerpts have been updated to reflect current styles in statistical reporting. A stronger emphasis on data visualizations has been added. The statistical exercises have been re-organized into units to facilitate ease of use and understanding. About this book Each of the 64 exercises gives a brief excerpt of statistical reporting from a published research article, and begins with guidelines for interpreting the statistics in the excerpt. The questions on the excerpts promote learning by requiring students to interpret information in tables and figures, perform simple calculations to further their interpretations, critique data-reporting techniques, and evaluate procedures used to collect data. Each exercise covers a limited number of statistics, making it easy to coordinate the exercises with lectures and a main textbook. The questions in each exercise are divided into two parts: (1) Factual Questions and (2) Questions for Discussion. The factual questions require careful reading for details, while the discussion questions show that interpreting statistics is more than a mathematical exercise. These questions require students to apply good judgment as well as statistical reasoning in arriving at appropriate interpretations.
