Investigating the brain "from the outside" using brain scanning technology, such as PET and fMRI, bring great precision to results. However, examining the "view from within" the brain isn't so easy. This book presents results of investigations, that examines the conscious mind "from the inside."
This is a neutral and up-to-date review of a variety of Iranian issues--from democracy and freedom and their application in Iran, to the issue of legitimacy and Iran's regime ideology, to economic preference and support for terrorism. Important questions are raised about whether Iran is supporting international terrorism and if so, to what extent is it doing so. Issues of international and ethnonationalist terrorism, politics, and economics are discussed and analyzed in the context of the Middle East, Latin America, and Latin Europe. Using socioeconomic and political theory and personal anecdotes, this book delivers a fascinating insight into present-day Iran.
As Eurasia and the adjacent territories become more important to the world, there is increasing interest from international powers, accompanied by attempts to give institutional form to traditional economic and security links within the region. This book includes a range of substantive work from scholars based in the region, offering contrasting perspectives on the process of Eurasian integration and its place in the world. Chapters consider economic, political, social and security developments, with notable studies of the major countries involved in the development of the Eurasian Economic Union. The work also examines the connections between the region and China, greater Asia and the European Union. It outlines the varying dynamics, with populations growing in Central Asia while at best stagnant elsewhere. The book discusses the increasing strategic significance of the region and explores how the new post-Soviet states are growing in national cohesion and political self-confidence. Above all, the book examines the concept of ’Eurasia’, outlining the debates about the concept and how various aspects of the legacy of ‘Eurasianism’ contribute to contemporary plans for integration. The book argues that although regional integration is very much a popular idea in our age, with the potential for economic benefits and increased international influence, in practice contemporary projects for Eurasian integration have been highly ambiguous and contested. Nevertheless, significant steps have been taken towards the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union. The book analyses developments to date, noting the achievements as well as the challenges.

Providing a definitive explanation of modern history in Ethiopia, this book covers the last century up until 1994. It attempts to explain for the hundreds of thousands Ethiopians who emigrated to the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe what happened in Ethiopia after the deposition of Emperor Haile Selassi. The changes that have taken place in Ethiopia over the past century are described, and a range of issues of historical importance as well as issues still important in Ethiopia today--the flora and fauna, the wildlife, and customs of Ethiopia now and in the past--are examined in great detail.

This book represents an effort to assess the unprecedented political, economic, and social reforms that have swept through Central and Eastern Europe in the five years since the collapse of Communism. The dismantling of the Warsaw Pact, the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, the Communist Party apparatus, and the various manifestations of the nomenklatura' political control system have meant different things in different countries, but throughout the region we have witnessed a struggle to replace an authoritarian, one-party political system and a command economy with something resembling Western-style constitutional democracy and market economics. Accompanying this struggle have been attempts to transform the legal structure of these countries. It is no exaggeration to claim that lawyers, and particularly legal scholars, have played a central role in the struggle for reform in post-communist Europe. As conceived by its principal organizer and editor (Stanislaw Frankowski), this study gives these scholars an opportunity to express their perceptions of the success achieved to date and the work still remaining. A secondary goal is to expose a Western audience to the views and insights of legal scholars who have worked within the Central and Eastern European traditions. The four parts of this book reflect the principal areas in which legal reform seemed essential. First comes the reconstitutionalization of the societies in question, which means above all else the elimination of single-party politics and the notion of unity of powers. Then comes the creation of the legal institutions that would make possible a civil society under law. Then the institutions that moderate and control theuses of state power to discipline and punish persons that have transgressed the society's norms. Finally there is the question of how law reform had dealt with industrial democracy and the anticipated transformation of the workplace.

Almost all of the messages that are received by the cerebral cortex from the environment or from the body's internal receptors come through the thalamus and much current thought about perceptual processing is based on sensory pathways that relay in the thalamus. This volume focuses on three major areas: the role of thalamocortical communication in cognition and attention; the role of the thalamus in communication between cortical areas; the hypothesis that much or all of the information relayed by thalamus, even to classical, pure "sensory" areas of cortex, represents a corollary message being sent simultaneously to motor centers. It presents a broad overview of important recent advances in these areas. * Provides a look at brain structures involved in perception and action * Includes summaries by leading investigators in the field * Presents recent advances in our understanding of brain functions
"In Nature from Within, Michael Heidelberger examines Fechner and his work from three perspectives: history, philosophy, and what Fechner called his "day view" approach to study across fields. Along with biographical information and a characterization of Fechner's writings, Heidelberger begins by describing Fechner's background with respect to intellectual history. He then focuses on Fechner's philosophy of science and on the philosopher's efforts to demonstrate that science could accept the identity of the psychical and the physical in an empirically clear and phenomenological interpretation. The book closes with a discussion of the significance of Fechner's philosophical methodology for branches of natural science and their respective underlying philosophies."--BOOK JACKET.
This book puts the underlying methodology of socioeconomic statistics on a firmer footing by placing it within the ambit of inferential and predictive games. It covers such problems as learning, publication, non-response, strategic response, the nature and possibility of rational expectations, time inconsistency, intrinsic nonstationarity, and the existence of probabilities.

This book is a humorous satire about the inner fumbling, bumbling and sometimes just plain chaos which the Internal Revenue Service would like to keep away from the public eyes. A few of the things which this book illustrates are a failed equal employment opportunity program; an antiquated payroll system which kept the employees in turmoil; an awards program which gave away hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars, just because employees came to work or because of the color of their skin; failed management development programs which cost the taxpayers millions of dollars; and the whimsical expensive penchant the IRS has for chasing today's fads and abandoning them when the new ones come along. These are a few items in the book, but there are many more which will leave the readers shaking their heads in disbelief. There are no technical tax matters in the book. The author describes the events in an easy going conversational style. It is guaranteed to make the readers laugh at the inept IRS management system and at times it might make the readers a little bit angry when they see how their hard earned tax dollars are foolishly squandered.
