Bremner, J. Gavin
This is a clear and authoritative introduction to infant development. The book moves with logical progression through chapters on perceptual development, cognitive development, and social interaction and development.Although adopting the traditional format for infancy texts, Bremner convincingly shows how current theoretical views call for the reformation of these traditional ways of categorizing infant ability. He reviews the debate at the heart of the subject between views of Piagetian constructionism and biological "ecological" theories, elucidating the competing views and addressing the implications for future research that arise from them. This book provides an up-to-date overview of the subject for undergraduates, and serves as a post-introductory course text.Signed by author on inside cover.Slight fading to covers.257pp.

"Water in the Middle East" presents historical and cross-cultural perspectives on water and conflict, prospects for future cooperation in the water arena among Middle Eastern countries, the political economy of water and technical solutions to water shortages in the Jordan Valley, and the relationships among water, agriculture, and environmental sustainability. Through case studies and essays, natural and social scientific water experts from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and the United States examine: The role of water in Middle East conflicts and the possibility of regional solutions to water scarcity requiring cooperation among states; Long-term prospects of various aquifers and other fresh-water sources, including desalination; current and future environmental deterioration of water resources; Breakthroughs and developments increasing regional agricultural productivity, depending less on high-quality waters while turning to lower quality resources, such as recycled and brackish waters; alternatives to current water-usage patterns, particularly with regard to agriculture and the possibility of redirecting water to tourism and other economic sectors. While this book highlights the complexities pertaining to regional water scarcity and inequitable distribution, the contributors offer no definitive conclusions or facile solutions; yet there is a broad consensus that regional solutions to maximize water resources must be pursued even as desalination becomes more viable both from technical/economic standpoints. The continuing deterioration of existing water supplies in terms of quantity and quality mandate that any solution must be achieved within a political/social framework of peace, enlightened economic policies, and the application of technical solutions that take due account of environmental concerns.249pp.
