Paperback

Book Description
In 1937 the Supreme Court revolutionized American constitutionalism, sharply restricting the states' powers and expanding those of the national government. In following years the civil rights movement caused further change, challenging American life with its demands for equal rights under the Constitution and protection by the federal government. The Vietnam War expanded and then contracted presidential power. In 2001, attacks organized by followers of Osama bin Laden on American cities revived presidential power, leading to new challenges to America's constitutional heritage. This volume assembles the most important documents from American constitutional history from the depths of the Great Depression to the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001. Through these important documents,...

Book Description
The rapid acceleration of industrialization and the transformation of market capitalism that followed the Civil War provided new opportunities for employment and wealth for many Americans. But these opportunities came at a cost: overcrowded and unsanitary housing, long work hours in dangerous conditions, and child labor in factories and mines. At the nineteenth century's end, Progressivism emerged as a national movement to redress the extreme imbalances in wealth and power that had come to characterize American life and to ameliorate some of the worst consequences of industrialization. The United States Supreme Court struggled with questions of preserving individual and property rights versus government regulation on behalf of the public interest. Following the stock market crash of 1929, President Franklin D....

From AudioFile
Uniquely British, this guide takes listeners on a quirky ride from the origins of postmodernism to its present state of influence. Two young British socialites are alternately excited and scandalized by the production's sound-effects-and-music-laden tour of postmodern art, which includes discussion of the artists' motivations and eccentricities, as well as their ground-breaking work. Narrator and cast careen through the philosophy and practice of postmodernism, negotiating humorous twists and audio jokes with flair and clarity. While the young Brits sometimes claim that they'd prefer a nice cup of cocoa to looking at Marcel Duchamp's startling creations, this audiobook manages to entertain and instruct in a distinctly theatric postmodern style.

Book Description
In Out of Innocence, ten-year-old Chris Curry, the eldest of Audie Curry’s four children—all by different fathers—struggles to maintain some sense of normalcy for himself and his three siblings. This is no easy job as audacious Audie, a planet without orbit, free-falls through the universe, dragging her four little moons in the wake of her destruction. Each dalliance with a new man and a new life in a new town for a new beginning ends up in the same sort of emotional rubble. The town of Halion and her latest “one true love,” Ricky Lee Steed, are exceptions only in the sense that they precipitate the most ruinous destruction. If not for Halion psychic Faye Louise Jacobs and her husband, J.Y., Chris would be doomed; however, with their help, he has a fighting chance to rise above the booze and...


Foundations of Intensional Semantics

August 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book provides a systematic study of three foundational issues in the semantics of natural language that have been relatively neglected in the past few decades. It focuses on the formal characterization of intensions, the nature of an adequate type system for natural language semantics, and the formal power of the semantic representation language. The theory proposed offers a promising framework for developing a computational semantic system that is sufficiently expressive to capture the properties of natural language meaning while remaining computationally tractable.Written by two leading researchers in the field, Foundations of Intensional Semantics will be of interest to students and researchers in formal semantics, computational linguistics, logic, artificial intelligence, and the philosophy of language. ...
