  1. Centuries of Genocide

    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has recently published a poll that has found that 78% of Americans support the US taking military action to stop genocide or mass atrocities. Commissioned 67 years after the Holocaust, the poll shows that Americans believe genocide is still very possible yet preventable. It also found Americans want the US government to play a major role in stopping genocide from happening around the world.

  2. Principles of Sustainable Aquaculture by Stuart Bunting

    Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, principally fish, molluscs, crustaceans and marine algae. It has seen phenomenal worldwide growth in the past fifty years and many people view it as the best solution for the provision of high quality protein to feed the world's growing population, particularly with the rapid decline in wild marine fish populations. Focused on developing more sustainable aquaculture practices, this book provides an ideal advanced-level textbook.

  3. Diversifying Food and Diets by Jessica Fanzo, Danny Hunter, Teresa Borelli and Federico Mattei

    Currently 925 million people are undernourished and 195 million children under five years of age are stunted. At the same time, over 1 billion people are overweight and obese in both the developed and developing world. This book explores the current state of knowledge on the role of agricultural biodiversity in improving nutrition and food security through improved dietary quality.

  4. Transforming Health Markets in Asia and Africa

    by Gerald Bloom, Barun Kanjilal, Henry Lucas, David Peters

    There has been a dramatic spread of health markets in much of Asia and Africa over the past couple of decades. This has substantially increased the availability of health-related goods and services in all but the most remote localities, but it has created problems with safety, efficiency and cost. This book documents the problems associated with unregulated health markets and presents innovative approaches that have emerged to address them.

  5. Desert Energy by Alasdair Cameron

    This book examines the key technologies being deployed in an effort to faucet the potential presented by world's deserts for siting large-scale solar power applications, and surveys the feasibility of such projects given the remoteness and the hostility of these environments.

  7. Social and Motivational Compensatory Mechanisms for Age-Related Cognitive Decline

    Although many aspects of fluid cognition decline with advancing age, simple observation in the wild suggests that older adults, generally speaking, do very well in their day-to-day life. The study of the orchestration of cognitive, social, and motivational compensatory mechanisms in the service of effective and healthy aging provides a meaningful challenge to traditional ways of examining developmental changes in cognitive performance.

  9. The No-Growth Imperative by Gabor Zovanyi

    More than two decades of mounting evidence confirms that the existing scale of the human enterprise has surpassed global ecological limits to growth. Based on such limits, The No-Growth Imperative discounts current efforts to maintain growth through eco-efficiency initiatives and smart-growth programs, and argues that growth is inherently unsustainable and that the true nature of the challenge confronting us now is one of replacing the current growth imperative with a no-growth imperative.

  10. Transforming Urban Transport by Nicholas Low

    Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world wedded to mobility: the danger of continuing along the fossil-fueled path and the real paucity of viable technological alternatives which can be deployed in time. To respond to the dilemma, the ideal of urban transportation must be changed from auto-based mobility to systems of sustainable transportation in which public transportation, and non-motorised transportation work together to reduce climate change pressures, enhance urban quality and preserve life and health.
