Stover and Erdmann deal with the crises confronting today's world and argue that solutions will come not from new technology nor in retreating to an idealized agrarian past, but by overhauling the beliefs that structure society. They link the dilemmas facing civilization to a fundamental rift running through society-one between religion and the humanities, rooted in subjective experience, and science, which emphasizes objective knowledge. They suggest a promising way of closing this rift found in the work of Nobel Laureate and neuroscientist Roger W. Sperry.

They examine Sperry's lifework, including his famous split- brain research and show how it led him to propose a theory of consciousness that challenged science's dismissal of subjective experience as irrelevant. By seeing consciousness as an emergent, causal property of brain function, Sperry reinstated subjective experience into the scientific worldview, laid the foundation for the cognitive revolution that has since swept through psychology, and created a means by which science can help create ethical systems better able to deal with today's challenges. Stover and Erdmann conclude by looking at ways in which others have built upon Sperry's ideas, and they hold out the hope that, with the creation of belief systems more compatible with science, a way out of humanity's current troubles may indeed be found. The result is an excursion through a world of exciting ideas, and a book sure to absorb anyone interested in the fate of our species-and how that fate might be influenced for the better. Students, researchers, scholars, and concerned citizens particularly interested in cognitive psychology, science and society, and futures studies will find the book intriguing.

From the Foreword.
IN writing this little monograph on factors that govern the value of diamonds the author has attempted to put, within limits not too wide to be covered by the busy diamond merchant, much of the experience he has gained during the past fifteen years, as a student of diamonds. Some of the information contained in this volume is the common property of all who have given attention to the subject. Part of it is to be found already in print, in larger and more pretentious works. A modest portion of the material is the result of original study at first hand, especially such part as attempts to analyse various effects and to determine and explain their causes. While most of the technical information contained in the following chapters might be learned of men who are now in the business, many such have no time or taste for writing down what they have learned, and others, unfortunately, regard some of these matters as trade secrets to be kept from the buying public. The writer therefore feels that there is a place for such an essay, and hopes that many who are serving their apprenticeship in the jewelry business and perhaps a few who are already recognized as diamond merchants may profit by the close study of this handbook.
In preparing these pages, the author has also had the great American diamond-buying public in mind and has even given over a short chapter to advice to the intending buyer of a diamond. No other people buy diamonds so largely as Americans. They buy the best and are usually at pains to inform themselves more thoroughly than other nationalities as to the points that determine the value of diamonds. There is nothing within the pages of this book which a merchant who is conducting an honest business in diamonds need fear to have become the property of the public. The more discerning and intelligent the buying public becomes, the better customer it will be, in the long run. In conclusion, the author would extend his thanks to the many jewelers and diamond men who have courteously extended to him opportunities to study diamonds at first hand. Most of the jewelers of Indianapolis should be included and, in addition, the author wishes gratefully to acknowledge much assistance from Mr. Edward E. Stone and Mr. John O'Hanion of Boston and Mr. John H. Baker of New York. The admirable treatise on diamonds by W. R. Cattelle has also furnished much interesting information and confirmed much that was gathered at first hand.


Intellectual Property In Global Governance

Intellectual Property in Global Governance critically examines the evolution of international intellectual property law-making from the build up to the TRIPS Agreement, through the TRIPS and post-TRIPS era. The book focuses on a number of thematic intellectual property issue linkages, exploring the formal and informal institutional interactions and multi-stakeholder holder intrigues implicated in the global governance of intellectual property. Using examples from bio-technology, bio-diversity, bio-prospecting and bio-piracy it investigates the shift or concentration in the focus of innovation from physical to life sciences and the ensuing changes in international intellectual property law making and their implications for intellectual property jurisprudence. It examines the character of the reception, resistance and various nuanced reactions to the changes brought about by the TRIPS Agreement, exploring the various institutional sites and patterns of such responses, as well as the escalation in the issue-linkages associated with the concept and impact of intellectual property law.

Drawing upon multiple methodological approaches including law and legal theory; regime theory, globalization and global governance Chidi Oguamanam explores the intellectual property dynamics in the "Global Knowledge Economy" focusing on digitization and information revolution phenomenon and the concept of a post-industrial society. The book articulates an agenda for global governance of intellectual property law in the 21st century and speculates on the future of intellectual property in North-South relations.


Birds As Useful Indicators Of High Nature Value Farmlands

This book helps to establish a simple framework to identify and use bird species as bioindicator for high nature values (HNV) farmlands. HNV farming is present in all European countries, with a diversity of types and extensions. The need for measures to prevent the loss and monitoring in real time of the quality of HNV areas and to mitigate the loss of biodiversity is widely recognized, but requires urgent attention. One of the reasons is due to the deep differences between agro ecosystems of Central-Eastern and Western Europe, differences that can explain the lack of achievements of several conservation policies, and later also in practice. Some recent studies showed how agri-environmental measures adopted in the countries of European Community may be ineffective in order to guarantee the stop on biodiversity in some intensive farmland. However more studies focusing strategies to increase the effectiveness of agri-environmental measures for conservation are necessaries.

We focus our studies on suitable methods for monitoring the HNV areas, presenting the results of some case studies. This book proposes to integrate ecosystems assessment, geographical information systems (GIS) and strategies for conservation of local biodiversity. The proposed framework is focused on the use of species distribution models (SDMs) in order to explore the importance of each characteristic of HNV farmlands. Additionally, we examine the relationships among bird species richness, land use diversity and landscape metrics at a local scale in the farmlands.

An innovative framework is suggested to develop models, using the HNV farmlands as response variable and the presence or abundance of a set of few common bird species as covariates. Finally, by performing traditional SDMs on the bird species selected during the first step it becomes possible to study which characteristics of farmlands are driven the distribution of these species indicators. These results encourage the possibility to accurately identify the HNV farmland by the presence of just few common bird species, and then the possibility to monitor it with a cost-effective instrument, even linking lay people to programs based on citizen science.
