What do we really want from schools? Only everything, in all its contradictions. Most of all, we want access and opportunity for all children—but all possible advantages for our own. So argues historian David Labaree in this provocative look at the way “this archetype of dysfunction works so well at what we want it to do even as it evades what we explicitly ask it to do.”

Drug discovery increasingly requires a common understanding by researchers of the many and diverse factors that go into the making of new medicines. The scientist entering the field will immediately face important issues for which his education may not have prepared him: project teams, patent law, consultants, target product profiles, industry trends, Gantt charts, target validation, pharmacokinetics, proteomics, phenotype assays, biomarkers, and many other unfamiliar topics for which a basic understanding must somehow be obtained. Even the more experienced scientist can find it frustratingly difficult to get an overview of the many factors involved in modern drug discovery and often only after years of exploring does a whole and integrated picture emerge in the mind of the researcher. Real World Drug Discovery: A Chemist’s Guide to Biotech and Pharmaceutical Research presents this kind of map of the landscape of drug discovery. In a single, readable volume it outlines processes and explains essential concepts and terms for the recent science graduate wondering what to expect in pharma or biotech, the medicinal chemist seeking a broader and more timely understanding of the industry, or the contractor or collaborator whose understanding of the commercial drug discovery process could increase the value of his contribution to it. Interviews with well-known experts in many of the fields involved, giving insightful comments from authorities on many of the sub-disciplines important to cutting edge drug discovery. Helpful suggestions gleaned from years of experience in biotech and pharma, which represents a repository drug discovery "lore" not previously available in any book. "Periodic Table of Drugs" listing current top-selling drugs arranged by target and laid out so that structural similarities and differences are plain and clear. Extensive use of diagrams to illustrate concepts like biotech startup models, preteomic profiling for target identification, Gantt charts for project planning, etc.

The Ninja Murders Commodore Matthew Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853 was one of history's defining moments. His visit ended over two-hundred years of self-imposed isolation and precipitated the fall of the Shogunate. It was also the moment that gave birth to Japanese ambitions to rule East Asia and the Western Pacific. America's desire to increase its international standing inadvertently opened a Pandora's Box that would lead to no less than five wars, including World War II. However, The Ninja Murders is not a history book. It's a novel of historical fiction. And as every fan of the genre knows, behind every great historical event, there is a hero deeply enmeshed in intrigue, danger and romance. Samurai, swords and sex!

Followers of Christ yearn to see the world changed in compassionate, positive, effective ways. As prophetic voices, Shane Claiborne and John Perkins lead the way in this move to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus. One is young; the other is decades older. One is a self - proclaimed reformed redneck who grew up in the hills of Tennessee and now lives in inner - city Philadelphia; the other is an African - American civil rights leader who was almost beaten to death by police in Mississippi, and went on to found a reconciliation movement and counsel three American presidents. Claiborne and Perkins draw on more than a century of combined following and learning, activating and leading. Together they craft a timely message for ordinary people willing to take radical steps to see real change happen. They start with Moses as a model and proceed to re - imagine the roles of leading and following in a world desperate for freedom.

In the midst of China’s post-Mao market reforms, the old status hierarchy is collapsing. Who will determine what will take its place? In Creating Market Socialism, the sociologist Carolyn L. Hsu demonstrates the central role of ordinary people—rather than state or market elites—in creating new institutions for determining status in China. Hsu explores the emerging hierarchy, which is based on the concept of suzhi, or quality. In suzhi ideology, human capital and educational credentials are the most important measures of status and class position. Hsu reveals how, through their words and actions, ordinary citizens decide what jobs or roles within society mark individuals with suzhi, designating them “quality people.” Hsu’s ethnographic research, conducted in the city of Harbin in northwestern China, included participant observation at twenty workplaces and interviews with working adults from a range of professions. By analyzing the shared stories about status and class, jobs and careers, and aspirations and hopes that circulate among Harbiners from all walks of life, Hsu reveals the logic underlying the emerging stratification system. In the post-socialist era, Harbiners must confront a fast-changing and bewildering institutional landscape. Their collective narratives serve to create meaning and order in the midst of this confusion. Harbiners collectively agree that “intellectuals” (scientists, educators, and professionals) are the most respected within the new social order, because they contribute the most to Chinese society, whether that contribution is understood in terms of traditional morality, socialist service, or technological and economic progress. Harbiners understand human capital as an accurate measure of a person’s status. Their collective narratives about suzhi shape their career choices, judgments, and child-rearing practices, and therefore the new practices and institutions developing in post-socialist China.

What is it that makes you move through life from opportunity to opportunity? Is it faith that inspires you to do things out of the ordinary, or is it fear? Fear is a scary force indeed. If you’re standing on a railroad track with a speeding train closing in, what is your reaction? Is it fear that you might die that forces you to move? Is it faith that the train is on a destructive path that causes you to move? Or is it just simple instinct born out of self-preservation? This is not a philosophical book, and I do not want to waste time sorting out the differences. The most important thing I have found in life is that faith makes me do things I thought I could never do, and fear does likewise. In this book, we’ll sort out many individuals in the Old Testament who were moved by both forces and yet were still called righteous. They were all on an incredible journey. But where were they going? What were they really seeking? Living by faith is probably the scariest thing you could ever choose to do. Some would say it’s the most foolish. In his book, By Faith And Fear, Elie takes you through conversations and questions of faith that are designed to challenge, stretch, and inspire. Focusing on contemporary issues and Biblical characters, Elie explains what living a life of faith can cost, but also how it can reap the biggest rewards. By Faith and Fear is an excellent read, one that will equip you for your personal faith journey. —Rev. Liz Linssen, pastor of Bethel Community Church, Port Talbot, UK, and author of Running with God.

A powerful book for men's groups and for personal growth. Failsafe reconnects men to their identity in Christ: made in the image of a loving God and remade as new creations no longer bound to the patterns of this world, thanks to the saving work of Jesus. As this connection with God is strengthened, men are reborn. Their emotional lives realign. Their character, spirituality, and emotional health come back into congruence, and they can face the hard things of the world with bold assurance, knowing that they are no longer slaves to their fear, their pain, or the expectations of others. They belong to the Lord, and he has overcome the world. Veteran men's ministry leader Kenny Luck helps men courageously face their insecurities and unlearn their unhealthy attachments to broken, worldly markers of significance: their jobs, their standing in the community, their physique, etc. Kenny teaches that it is impossible to be spiritually mature when you are emotionally immature and points men to Christ as a model for masculinity and an anchor for their identity. This book is a rallying cry for men to become grounded in Christ so they can be set loose to serve a hurting world.

I believe that every man is sacred, and when he realizes his individual worth, he cannot help but strive for perfection, and though he cannot find it in his own strength, will realize that the God who made him loves him and will give him the strength he needs to overcome all tribulation and failure, that we were made to be happy and excited about our existence, and that we should live and learn to love life and embrace all it has to offer passionately, eliminating the bad and enhancing the good, for ourselves and our fellow man. It is our God-given responsibility to take this gift of life and the earth upon which we were given to live to learn to love God and our fellow man, and that our journey is solely our own, and affects all of us for the worse or the better according to the choices we make guided by our character. And whether we like it or not, all of our chosen activities affect each other, and should lift up our fellow man as sacred and special as we lift ourselves up individually, and to never forget that we are not here alone, that God is watching every step we take and every action in our lives, and we are held in judgment for how we treat ourselves, our fellow man, and our relationship with our Heavenly Father.”

We hear it all the time: Americans need to have a conversation about race. But as far as Anthony M. D’Agostino, M.D., can tell, these conversations usually just reinforce our existing attitudes and prejudices. Is it actually possible for white people to have fruitful conversations with each other about prejudice and race? His answer: a definite maybe. In Prejudice, Racism, Tribalism: A Primer for White People, he offers a discussion of these beliefs and attitudes from the point of view of a prejudice-prone white person. He writes how these terms are similar and how they are different. Consider questions such as: • Who are victims of racism and why should we care? • Who benefits from tribal prejudices and why are they so enduring? • How do our prejudices influence our social and political opinions? • Just what is “white privilege” and why would I want to lose it? The author also examines topics such as attitudes about immigration, language, and other prejudices of white people about religion, women, Hispanics, and politics.
