With more than three-quarters of a million copies sold since its first publication, <i>The Craft of Research</i> has helped generations of researchers at every level鈥攆rom first-year undergraduates聽to advanced graduate students聽to research reporters in business and government鈥攍earn how to conduct effective and meaningful research. Conceived by seasoned researchers and educators Wayne C. Booth, Gregory G. Colomb, and Joseph M. Williams, this fundamental work explains how to find and evaluate sources,聽anticipate and respond to reader reservations, and聽integrate these pieces into an argument that stands up to reader critique.<br /><br /><br /><br />The fourth edition has been thoroughly but respectfully revised by Joseph Bizup and William T. FitzGerald. It retains the original five-part structure, as well as the sound advice of earlier editions, but reflects the way research and writing are taught and practiced today. Its chapters on finding and engaging sources now incorporate recent developments in library and Internet research, emphasizing new techniques made possible by online databases and search engines. Bizup and FitzGerald provide fresh examples and standardized terminology to clarify concepts like <i>argument</i>, <i>warrant</i>, and <i>problem</i>.<br /><br /><br /><br />Following the same guiding principle as earlier editions鈥攖hat the skills of doing and reporting research are not just for elite students but for everyone鈥攖his new edition retains the accessible voice and direct approach that have made <i>The Craft of Research</i> a leader in the field of research reference. With updated examples and information on evaluation and using聽contemporary sources, this beloved classic is ready for the next generation of researchers.

<b>"If one book was all that could be passed on to the next generation of scientists it would undoubtedly have to be <i>Six Easy Pieces.</i>"- John Gribbin, <i>New Scientist</i></b><br />It was Richard Feynman's outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman delivered a series of lectures at the California Institute of Technology that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world. <i>Six Easy Pieces</i>, taken from these famous Lectures on Physics, represent the most accessible material from the series.<br />In these classic lessons, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, basic physics, energy, gravitation, quantum mechanics, and the relationship of physics to other topics. With his dazzling and inimitable wit, Feynman presents each discussion with a minimum of jargon. Filled with wonderful examples and clever illustrations, <i>Six Easy Pieces</i> is the ideal introduction to the fundamentals of physics by one of the most admired and accessible physicists of modern times.

<p><strong>A <em>New York Times</em> / National Bestseller<br /><br /><br /><br />"America's funniest science writer" (<em>Washington Post</em>) Mary Roach explores the science of keeping human beings intact, awake, sane, uninfected, and uninfested in the bizarre and extreme circumstances of war.</strong></p><br /><p><em>Grunt</em> tackles the science behind some of a soldier's most challenging adversaries鈥攑anic, exhaustion, heat, noise鈥攁nd introduces us to the scientists who seek to conquer them. Mary Roach dodges hostile fire with the U.S. Marine Corps Paintball Team as part of a study on hearing loss and survivability in combat. She visits the fashion design studio of U.S. Army Natick Labs and learns why a zipper is a problem for a sniper. She visits a repurposed movie studio where amputee actors help prepare Marine Corps medics for the shock and gore of combat wounds. At Camp Lemmonier, Djibouti, in east Africa, we learn how diarrhea can be a threat to national security. Roach samples caffeinated meat, sniffs an archival sample of a World War II stink bomb, and stays up all night with the crew tending the missiles on the nuclear submarine USS Tennessee. She answers questions not found in any other book on the military: Why is DARPA interested in ducks? How is a wedding gown like a bomb suit? Why are shrimp more dangerous to sailors than sharks? Take a tour of duty with Roach, and you鈥檒l never see our nation鈥檚 defenders in the same way again.</p>

<P><B>How technology and bureaucracy shape collaborative scientific research projects: an empirical study of multiorganizational collaboration in the physical sciences.</B></P><P>Collaboration among organizations is rapidly becoming common in scientific research as globalization and new communication technologies make it possible for researchers from different locations and institutions to work together on common projects. These scientific and technological collaborations are part of a general trend toward more fluid, flexible, and temporary organizational arrangements, but they have received very limited scholarly attention. Structures of Scientific Collaboration is the first study to examine multi-organizational collaboration systematically, drawing on a database of 53 collaborations documented for the Center for History of Physics of the American Institute of Physics. By integrating quantitative sociological analyses with detailed case histories, Shrum, Genuth, and Chompalov pioneer a new and truly interdisciplinary method for the study of science and technology. Scientists undertake multi-organizational collaborations because individual institutions often lack sufficient resources鈥昳ncluding the latest technology鈥晅o achieve a given research objective. The authors find that collaborative research depends on both technology and bureaucracy; scientists claim to abhor bureaucracy, but most collaborations use it constructively to achieve their goals. The book analyzes the structural elements of collaboration (among them formation, size and duration, organization, technological practices, and participant experiences) and the relationships among them. The authors find that trust, though viewed as positive, is not necessarily associated with successful projects; indeed, the formal structures of bureaucracy reduce the need for high levels of trust鈥昦nd make possible the independence so valued by participating scientists.</P>
