We all have more knowledge than we use; even so, say the editors of this book, ignorance often governs our actions. Society continues to find ways to misuse knowledge–from manipulating information to gain political power to restricting what ideas are explored on university campuses. Thus, when some of the best minds in the country met to focus on the optimum utilization of knowledge, it was not an idle academic inquiry. In these proceedings from that conference, which was sponsored by the Academy of Independent Scholars, the contributors examine several of the key aspects of learning: the importance of knowledge in decision making, the role of our educational system and other systems in producing and disseminating knowledge, and the relationship between knowledge and the physiological, psychological, and cultural bases of the learning process. The misuse of knowledge–or the overuse of ignorance–the authors note, could threaten the existence of the entire planet, if the kind of thinking exemplified by the nuclear arms race prevails.

Education is as old as the evolution of the human race. Right from the time of its progression, education began from gaining knowledge and skills related to the fulfillment of basic human needs. These were passed on to the next generations in an informal manner. With the growth of civilization, the need of formal education for the development of the individual as well as the society was realized and gradually education got institutionalized. Ever since, education has not remained stagnant but it has undergone wider transformation through the course of time. Expansion of education has helped in the intensification in the ability of our educational system. This includes the increasing number of aspirants, expansion of physical facilities for imparting education, and diverse forms and types of education taking place due to rapidly expanding knowledge base, resulting in new specialized areas of knowledge. This growth is in response to the rapidly changing socio-economic changes in the present world.

This title was first published in 2002: This important collection of international research on fisheries economics offers a comprehensive source of contemporary research on key topics in the field, as well as presenting the history of how the economic theory of fisheries exploitation has developed. Bringing into focus a wide range of inquiry, this volume concentrates most particularly on the traditional economic problem of optimal resource allocation. Individual papers examine fundamental issues including, the lack of efficiency of open access and the specification of exactly what dynamic efficiency entails. Fisheries Economics is an invaluable research reference collection for the libraries of academic and other professional economists, as well as an indispensable resource for those studying across the fields of natural resources, fisheries economics and particularly fisheries management.
