For eighteen years, Bruce Bueno de Mesquita and Alastair Smith have been part of a team revolutionizing the study of politics by turning conventional wisdom on its head. They start from a single assertion: Leaders do whatever keeps them in power. They don't care about the national interest",or even their subjects,unless they have to. This clever and accessible book shows that the difference between tyrants and democrats is just a convenient fiction. Governments do not differ in kind but only in the number of essential supporters, or backs that need scratching. The size of this group determines almost everything about politics: what leaders can get away with, and the quality of life or misery under them. The picture the authors paint is not pretty. But it just may be the truth, which is a good starting point for anyone seeking to improve human governance.

Why are America's most beloved presidents also our most dangerous?It's striking how many of the presidents Americans venerate- Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy, to name a few- oversaw some of the republic's bloodiest years. Perhaps they were driven by the needs of the American people and the nation. Or maybe they were just looking out for themselves.This revealing and entertaining book puts some of America's greatest leaders under the microscope, showing how their calls for war, usually remembered as brave and noble, were in fact selfish and convenient. In each case, our presidents chose personal gain over national interest while loudly evoking justice and freedom. The result is an eye-opening retelling of American history, and a call for reforms that may make the future better.Bueno de Mesquita and Smith demonstrate in compelling fashion that wars, even bloody and noble ones, are not primarily motivated by democracy or freedom or the sanctity of human life. When our presidents risk the lives of brave young soldiers, they do it for themselves.

Neuropsychology is a vast field, overlapping with psychiatry, medicine and neuroscience. It essentially addresses the relationship between mind and brain through the study of dysfunction, with a range of research paradigms drawing from cognitive, clinical, neurological and neuroscientific perspectives. Neuropsychology has a long history, but newer methods for analyzing the brain (neuroimaging) have taken the field on an exciting new trajectory in the past 10 years. This six-volume collection provides a set of original sources that have proved to be popular, influential and enduring, and explicitly integrates modern neuroscience into neuropsychological endeavours. It represents the historical evolution of the field by presenting a set of papers which guide the reader from early thinking, often at a theoretical level, through the core empirical experiments and case studies which represent the advances of the field, up to more modern perspectives provided by neuroscientific accounts of brain and behaviour. Volume One: Conceptual and Historical Issues revisits early works to provide a context for key topics that are still being investigated by a range of neuropsychological methods. Volume Two: Cognitive Neuropsychology presents some of the "natural experiments" that are brought about by various injuries and diseases. Volume Three: Clinical and Applied Neuropsychology explores how neuropsychological assessment is used in clinical and applied settings. Volume Four: Cognitive Neuropsychiatry shows how neuropsychological paradigms can further our understanding of cognitive impairments traditionally associated with psychiatric disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, and developmental conditions. Volume Five: Imaging Brain and Behaviour describes the key techniques that are used to measure the activity of the brain in typical and atypical circumstances. Volume Six: Stimulating and Disrupting the Brain illustrates how various interventions can be used to affect brain function.

When the United States invaded Iraq, President Bush made it clear: the U.S. was not fighting the Iraqi people. Rather, all quarrels were solely with Iraq's leadership. This kind of assertion remains frequent in foreign affairs--sanctions or military actions are imposed on a nation not because of its people, but because of its misguided leaders. Although the distinction might seem pedantic since the people suffer regardless, "Punishing the Prince" reveals how targeting individual leaders for punishment rather than the nations they represent creates incentives for cooperation between nations and leaves room for future relations with pariah states.

"Punishing the Prince" demonstrates that theories of leader punishment explain a great deal about international behavior and interstate relations. The book examines the impact that domestic political institutions have on whether citizens hold their leaders accountable for international commitments and shows that the degrees to which citizens are able to remove leaders shape the dynamics of interstate relations and leader turnover. Through analyses of sovereign debt, international trade, sanctions, and crisis bargaining, Fiona McGillivray and Alastair Smith also uncover striking differences in patterns of relations between democratic and autocratic states. Bringing together a vast body of information, "Punishing the Prince" offers new ways of thinking about international relations.

"Medical Care of the Liver Transplant Patient" looks at monitoring and maintaining the health of organ recipients and donors, pre, during and post-operatively.

There are twenty-nine chapters containing practical advice on total patient management. They are arranged into 8 sections and follow the stages of transplantation from first indication and selection of potential recipient, through to acute recovery, long-term follow-up and continued health.

In this edition there are new chapters on special considerations in liver transplant patients such as viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease and live donor liver transplantation. It also contains the very latest information concerning complications and recurring problems after transplantation. Another new chapter considers fresh approaches and developments in the future.

This is a vital reference to all members of the medical team involved at different stages in the care of liver transplantation patients including hepatologists, gastroenterologists, transplant surgeons, specialist nurses, and nutritionists.

This collection brings together the major papers in the field of Perception. This is a rich area, both in terms of history, and the breadth of the subject, which covers all five sensory modalities. The articles included range from recent influential reviews to introduce an area and historical and classic material to leading-edge recent work which may challenge accepted practice. The aim is to provide a feel for the dynamism of the field - this is often illustrated by major debates between various positions. Perception begins with an introduction by the editors. Tom Troscianko has been Executive Editor of the journal Perception for twenty years, and has published widely in the area. Alastair Smith is a researcher who has published influential papers and whose interests lie at the intersection of several of the sets making up this work. The introductory chapter serves as a navigation guide through the rest of the collection, and summarises the major debates and advances from what was, initially, a topic within philosophy through to the present neuroscientific basis of the field. Volumes One and Two focuses on visual perception as vision is the most widely-researched modality, and these volumes include classic readings on the topic, from the perception of form, colour, and motion, to the grouping of these elements to facilitate the recognition. Volume Three covers hearing and touch; papers on hearing cover basic perception of acoustic signals, typified by the fundamental research carried out by Bell Laboratories, and continue this through to work by Bregman that describes auditory stream segregation and auditory illusions. Touch is represented by research on low-level perception of physical stimuli through to the feeling of pain. Volume Four looks the chemical senses of taste and smell - two closely-related systems. Furthermore, this volume illustrates how theorists have characterised the integration of perceptual systems, and how they interact in the multi-modal world. This major work will prove to be a valuable resource for scholars in Psychology and related disciplines who wish to access this body of knowledge.

Political Economy of Institutions and Decisions - Election Timing (Hardcover): Alastair Smith Political Economy of Institutions and Decisions - Election Timing (Hardcover)
Alastair Smith
R1,631 Discovery Miles 16 310 Special order

Endogenous election timing allows leaders to schedule elections 'when the time is right'. The author proposes and tests an informational theory of endogenous election timing that explains when leaders call for elections and the consequences of their decisions. In particular, he argues that, if all else is equal, leaders announce elections when they anticipate a decline in their future performance. As a consequence, early elections signal a leader's lack of confidence in future outcomes. The earlier elections occur, relative to expectations, the stronger the signal of demise. Using data on British parliaments since 1945, the author tests hypotheses related to timing of elections, electoral support and subsequent economic performance. Leaders who call elections early (relative to expectations) experience a decline in their popular support relative to pre-announcement levels, experience worse post-electoral performance, and have shorter campaigns.
