The Endangered Species Act (ESA) may be the most powerful environmental law in the United States. Enacted in 1973, the ESA prohibits any actions that may cause harm to endangered plants and animals or the ecosystems upon which they depend. But although more than 1,­200 species are protected under the Act, most remain in peril. The ESA may have saved some species from the brink of extinction, but there is little evidence it is working as intended to recover endangered and threatened species. In some cases, the Act's extensive regulatory requirements may actually discourage conservation efforts.­In Rebuilding the Ark: New Perspectives on Endangered Species Act Reform, Jonathan H. Adler leads a group of environmental law experts in evaluating the ESA's successes and failures and exploring multiple avenues for reform. The authors examine methods for incentivizing conservation on private land and water, for revising and standardizing the ESA's regulatory framework, and for increasing . . .

As religiously grounded moral arguments have become ever more influential factors in the national debate-­particularly reinforced by recent presidential elections and the creation of the faith-­based initiative office in the White House-­journalists' ignorance about theological convictions has often worked to distort the public discourse on important policy issues. Pope John Paul II's pronouncements on stem-­cell research, the constitutional controversies regarding faith-­based initiatives, the emerging participation of Muslims in American life-­issues like these require political journalists in print and broadcast media to cover religious contexts that many admit they are ill-­equipped to understand. Put differently, these news events reflect subtle theological nuances and deep faith commitments that shape the activities of religious believers in the public square. Inasmuch as a faith tradition is an active or significant participant in the public arena, journalists will need to better . . .

This graduate-­level textbook and monograph defines the functions of a real variable through consistent use of the Daniell scheme, offering a rare and useful alternative to customary approaches. The treatment can be understood by any reader with a solid background in advanced calculus, and it features many problems with hints and answers. "The exposition is fresh and sophisticated,­" declared Sci-­Tech Book News, "and will engage the interest of accomplished mathematicians.­" Part one is devoted to the integral, moving from the Reimann integral and step functions to a general theory, and obtaining the "classical" Lebesgue integral in n space. Part two constructs the Lebesgue-­Stieltjes integral through the Daniell scheme using the Reimann-­Stieltjes integral as the elementary integral. Part three develops theory of measure with the general Daniell scheme, and the final part is devoted to the theory of the derivative.

Intelligence professionals are employees of the government working in a business that some would consider unethical_­the business of spying. This book looks at the dilemmas that exist when one is asked to perform a civil service that is in conflict with what that individual believes to be 'ethical.­' This is the first book to offer the best essays, articles, and speeches on ethics and intelligence that demonstrate the complex moral dilemmas in intelligence collection, analysis, and operations that confront government employees. Some are recently declassified and never before published, and all are written by authors whose backgrounds are as varied as their insights, including Robert M. Gates, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency; John P. Langan, the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Professor of Catholic Social Thought at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University; and Loch K.

This volume offers very specific illustrations of psychoanalytic ways of thinking and working in both clinical and pedagogical contexts with children. It is designed for professionals who work with infants, children, and adolescents, and who are seeking modes of working that respects emotions, that embrace context, and that privilege imagination and possibility. For professionals who already practice in ways that are sympathetic to these modes of working, the scholarly underpinning of this work offers a rationale for taking a stand in favor of emotionally focused, child-­centered work and in opposition to systems that negate the lives of children. This book is for caring professionals who devote their lives to creating spaces for children to find their own paths and is intended to serve as a source of sustenance and support for such work.
