Born in Vermont while Thomas Jefferson was president, and dying in Detroit while Rutherford B. Hayes was president, Orestes Brownson knew practicially everybody and wrote about practically everything in the nineteenth century. Called by some a "Marxist before Marx," he travelled from various forms of radicalism and religion to political conservatism and religious orthodoxy. His socialist roots made him a formidable adversary to Marxist thought in his maturity. In his first principles, Brownson came to stand at the opposite pole from Ralph Waldo Emerson; among his friends was John C. Calhoun. He set himself against both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, arguing that authority and liberty both are necessary for a commonwealth. Brownson maintained that pure democracy and social equality are death to civilization and liberty; that the moral principles taught by the Church deny the rectitude of leveling egalitarianism; and that those who would preserve the justice and freedom of the American Republic must resist the degradation of the democratic dogma. With force and penetrating intellect, Brownson reminded Americans that they must respect the wisdom of traditional values. By calling for restraints on American materialism and individualism, he did not make himself popular in his time. But as Russell Kirk makes clear in his new introduction, Brownson's ideas ' have had continuing influence, just as his thought has reentered American political discourse. Publication of his essays as part of the Library of Conservative Thought is particularly timely.
Elementary Statistics: A Step By Step Approach is for introductory statistics courses with a basic algebra prerequisite. The text follows a nontheoretical approach, explaining concepts intuitively and supporting them with abundant examples. In recent editions, Al Bluman has placed more emphasis on conceptual understanding and understanding results, which is also reflected in the online homework environment, Connect Math Hosted by ALEKS. Additionally step-by step instructions on how to utilize the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator, Excel, and Minitab, have also been updated to reflect the most recent editions of each technology.

Paul Tillich, more than any other theologian of the twentieth century, maintained an energetic dialogue with psychology, and especially psychotherapy. This book explores what Tillich's theology has to offer psychologists and others working in the field of mental health, spiritual development, and pastoral counseling. Tillich's interaction with Carl Rogers, Erich Fromm, Rollo May, and other famous psychologists became an important part of his thinking. Tillich frequently pushed psychologists to see the underlying philosophical assumptions of their work. This investigation of the underpinnings of psychotherapy then encouraged psychotherapists to become more aware of the ultimate questions about meaning, purpose, and ethics that informed their work. Perhaps the greatest contribution this book offers is a careful narrative and analysis of the meetings of the New York Psychology Group, which involved such figures as Tillich, Fromm, May, Rogers, Seward Hiltner, Ruth Benedict, and David Roberts, to name just a few. This important group, which met from 1941 to 1945, dealt with issues that are very much with us today, such as whether faith can be psychologically explained, the meaning of transcendence, the relationship between psychotherapy and ethics, the appropriateness of self-love, and whether human love is parallel with Divine love.

The Longman Anthology of World Drama and Theatre is a fully-integrated text/anthology of drama with a global emphasis for the Introduction to Drama course. Divided into two parts: Part One covers the origins of drama: genres, conventions, styles and descriptions of roles, and Part Two is a six chapter anthology of plays, including plays from around the world with a solid core of western plays. Each chapter in Part Two includes visuals, maps, timelines, biographical and contextual headnotes, and an overview of the history and conventions of each period that help students gain a better understanding of the drama and theater being presented.
Introductory Statistics is designed for the one-semester, introduction to statistics course and is geared toward students majoring in fields other than math or engineering. This text assumes students have been exposed to intermediate algebra, and it focuses on the applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it. The foundation of this textbook is Collaborative Statistics, by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean. Additional topics, examples, and ample opportunities for practice have been added to each chapter. The development choices for this textbook were made with the guidance of many faculty members who are deeply involved in teaching this course. These choices led to innovations in art, terminology, and practical applications, all with a goal of increasing relevance and accessibility for students. We strove to make the discipline meaningful, so that students can draw from it a working knowledge that will enrich their future studies and help them make sense of the world around them.

Rather, it lays out a series of standard preparatory questions that the user (s) must work to find answers for, thereby learning the material in the process. If in a time crunch, use a group strategy to take down sections and share with one another.
This classic table of random numbers for use in statistical probability experiments, one of the first, was prepared in the precomputer days of 1947 using the specially built electronic equivalent of a 32-place roulette wheel. Fourteen RAND mathematicians, engineers, and computing pioneers participated in the planning, testing, and rerandomizing of the tables and in preparing for publication. The two tables, one of a million random digits and one of 100,000 Gaussian deviates, were photoreproduced from IBM 856 Cardatype printout. An introduction explains their derivation and statistical properties and gives directions for use. Although large simulation studies now generate their own random numbers, the RAND tables remain useful for smaller-scale work and hand calculations; they are much used in agricultural research. As of September 1971, [A Million Random Digits] was in its third printing, and nearly 7000 copies had been sold. (Published by The Free Press, 1955. Available only from booksellers or the publisher, or as a RAND Reprint.) 225 pp.
