Organization and structure of thoughts and ideas is essential for strong writing. Hogan approaches writing as a building activity. Students learn the writing process and concise paragraph construction using clear, step by step building blocks. In keeping with the building theme, patterns of writing are broken into two units: formal or prescriptive paragraph structures and informal or loose paragraph structures. Each chapter builds on the skills discussed in previous chapters. The book is economically priced and offers comprehensive coverage of the paragraph. Part of the Advantage Series.

Teaching writing as part of a building activity provides students with an easy to remember image that helps them understand and apply good writing construction. This building process helps them see how each writing block sets the foundation for the next block; as a result, their confidence in writing skills grows. The first foundational block is writing correct sentences, the second, writing effective paragraphs, and finally writing effective essays. Just as actual foundations require raw materials, so does each writing building block require specific elements. For example, in grammar, to build a correct sentence, you need nouns, verbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and other grammatical elements. As the third book of the Building Better series, _Building Better Essays_ builds on students' knowledge of effective paragraph construction, covered in Building Better Paragraphs, to get them to the next step of putting paragraphs together successfully for coherent essays. Many writing books present content in too complex a manner without enough opportunities for practice or present so many topics that simply overwhelm the student. The Building Better series evolved to be flexible enough that they can also be used as a quick reference guide by all college students or writing instructors. Any student who needs help writing concise and clear essays can benefit from the pedagogy of Building Better Essays. Instructors looking for a rich focus on essay construction, simple and brief explanations that are easy to remember, and variety of practice exercises will find it in Building Better Essays.

Teaching grammar in blocks as part of a building activity provides students with an easy to remember image that helps them understand and apply good sentence construction. This building process helps students see how each grammar concept or building block sets the foundation for the next concept or building block; as a result, their confidence in writing grows the more they learn and practice. As the first book of the Building Better series, Building Better Grammar builds students' knowledge of effective sentence construction to get them to the next step of putting sentences together successfully for coherent paragraphs and essays. The Building Better series developed out of a need to help more students succeed in learning to write effectively. This technique of building writing makes the writing process a manageable one because it allows students to practice each concept or block separately, to see how it shapes subsequent blocks, and to increase their understanding and confidence along the way. Many writing books present grammar content too complexly without enough opportunities for practice, or present so many topics that simply overwhelm the student. The Building Better series evolved with developmental students in mind; the textbooks are designed to be flexible enough that all college students or writing instructors can use them as a quick reference guide. Instructors looking for a rich focus on sentence construction, simple and brief explanations that are easy to remember, and variety of practice exercises will find it in Building Better Grammar.

An international design research programme, the Portsmouth Elephant Cage (2016-17) is summarised in this report. The Elephant Cage evaluated, explored and critiqued significant issues with the current proposals for sea defences along Portsmouth's Southsea frontage. An alternative strategy for the sea defences that can further enhance the value, amenity, environment and ecology of Southsea common, whilst delivering a more sustainable future for the city of Portsmouth, is then described and illustrated. The report recommends actions forward to address the apparent shortfalls with the existing proposals in the light of the findings.

Russia's leadership in establishing the BRICS group (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) is emblematic of its desire to end US hegemony and rewrite the rules of the international system. Rachel S. Salzman tells the story of why Russia broke with the West, how BRICS came together, why the group is emblematic of Russia's challenge to the existing global order, and how BRICS has changed since its debut. The BRICS group of non-Western states with emerging economies is held together by a shared commitment to revising global economic governance and strict noninterference in the internal affairs of other countries. BRICS is not exclusively a Russian story, but understanding the role of BRICS in Russian foreign policy is critical to understanding the group’s mission. In a time of alienation from the Euro-Atlantic world, BRICS provides Russia with much needed political support and legitimacy. While the longterm cohesion of the group is uncertain, BRICS stands as one of Vladimir Putin's signature international accomplishments. This book is essential reading for scholars and policymakers interested in Russian foreign policy, the BRICS group, and global governance.

How can international aid professionals manage to deal with the daily dilemmas of working for the wellbeing of people in countries other than their own? A scholar-activist and lifelong development practitioner seeks to answer that question in a book that provides a vivid and accessible insight into the world of aid – its people, ideas and values against the backdrop of a broader historical analysis of the contested ideals and politics of aid operations from the 1960s to the present day. Moving between aid-recipient countries, head office and global policy spaces, Rosalind Eyben critically examines her own behaviour to explore what happens when trying to improve people’s lives in far-away countries and warns how self-deception may construct obstacles to the very change desired, considering the challenge to traditional aid practices posed by new donors like Brazil who speak of history and relationships. The book proposes that to help make this a better world, individuals and organisations working in international development must respond self-critically to the dilemmas of power and knowledge that shape aid’s messy relations. Written in an accessible way with vignettes, stories and dialogue, this critical history of aid provides practical tools and methodology for students in development studies, anthropology and international studies and for development practitioners to adopt the habit of reflexivity when helping to make a better world.

The transformation of the BRIC acronym from an investment term into a household name of international politics and into a semi-institutionalized political outfit (called BRICS, with a capital 'S'), is one of the defining developments in international politics in the past decades. While the concept is now commonly used in the general public debate and international media, there has not yet been a comprehensive and scholarly analysis of the history of the BRICS term. The BRICS and the Future of Global Order, Second Edition offers a definitive reference history of the BRICS as a term and as an institution--a chronological narrative and analytical account of the BRICS concept from its inception in 2001 to the political grouping it is today. In addition, it analyzes what the rise of powers like Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa means for the future of global order. Will the BRICS countries seek to establish a parallel system with its own distinctive set of rules, institutions, and currencies of power, rejecting key tenets of liberal internationalism, are will they seek to embrace the rules and norms that define today's Western-led order?

This volume records the proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Con ference of the International Simulation and Gaming Association (ISAGA), 15-19 July, 1991, Kyoto, Japan, sponsored by the Science Council of Japan and the Japanese Association of Simulation and Gaming (JASAG). The con ference theme was Global Modeling for Solving Global Problems. The first 2 days of the conference were held in the magnificent Kyoto International Conference Hall; the 3rd day was spent admiring the floats of the famous Gion Festival in the exquisite city of Kyoto and the Daibutsu (or Great Buddha) of the Todaiji Temple in Nara and visiting one of the Sharp factories. During the last 2 days of the conference we were made most welcome in the Faculty of International Relations of Ritsumeikan University. The day after the conference, a number of delegates went to Hiroshima (the Peace Memorial Hall, Museum and Park) and also to one of Japan's "Scenic Trio," the island of Miyajima with its breathtaking views and the Itsukushima Shrine. The conference was attended by some 400 delegates from over 30 different countries. Over 100 sessions, both theoretical and practical, were given: keynote speeches, round-table discussions, workshops, papers. This volume reflects most of those sessions, in the form of either a full paper or a short abstract.
