Providing a streamlined, clear pathway through A&P Anatomy & Physiology, Sixth Edition answers the demand for a leaner version of Elaine Marieb and Katja Hoehn's best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology while maintaining its trusted, accurate approach. This streamlined text excludes coverage of pregnancy & human development, heredity, and the developmental aspects of body systems, while providing coverage of key A&P concepts. With the newly revised Sixth Edition, Marieb and Hoehn introduce a clear pathway through A&P that helps students and instructors focus on key concepts and make meaningful connections. The new modular organization makes key concepts more readily apparent and understandable to students, and new "Why This Matters" videos help students see why the content is important not only for their course, but also for their future careers. An expanded suite of learning tools in the book and in MasteringA&P guide students through important concepts. Also available with MasteringA&P. MasteringA&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics(TM). Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringA&P does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MasteringA&P, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

The Arab Spring unexpectedly developed in late 2010 with peaceful protests in a number of Arab countries against long-standing, entrenched regimes, and rapid political upheaval across the region ensued. With contributions from noted scholars, The Arab Spring: Change and Resistance in the Middle East provides a comprehensive overview of the causes, the key events, and the aftermath of these revolutions. Divided into two parts, the book first examines on the Arab countries directly involved and most dramatically impacted by the uprisings, as well as why some of their Arab neighbors avoided large-scale revolutions. The second part explores other countries--both in and outside of the region--that have a stake and interest in the uprisings. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include coverage of events since 2012 and how those changes have altered initial assessments of Arab Spring's effects, and a brand-new chapter on Iraq. New part introductions and a revised concluding chapter provide better contextualization and comparative analysis of the key themes and broader questions. This is an essential volume for students and scholars of the Middle East seeking the fullest understanding of how the uprisings continue to impact the region and the world.

How do we understand the evolution of central-local relations in China during the reform period? This book addresses this question by focusing on eight separate issues in which the central-local relationship has been especially salient - government finance, investment control, regional development, administrative zoning, implementation, culture, social welfare and international relations. Each chapter introduces a sector and the way the center and various local governments have shared or divided power over the different periods of China's reform era. The balance of power is gauged dynamically over time to measure the extent to which one level of government dominates, influences or shares power in making decisions in each of these particular domains, as well as what is likely to occur in the foreseeable future. The authors assess the winners and losers of these changes among key actors in China's society. The result provides a dynamic view of China's changing power relations.

" Battering States explores the most personal part of people's lives as they intersect with a uniquely complex state system. The book examines how statecraft shapes domestic violence: how a state defines itself and determines what counts as a family; how a state establishes sovereignty and defends its borders; and how a state organizes its legal system and forges its economy. The ethnography includes stories from people, places, and perspectives not commonly incorporated in domestic violence studies, and, in doing so, reveals the transformation of intimate partner violence from a predictable form of marital trouble to a publicly recognized social problem. The politics of domestic violence create novel entry points to understanding how, although women may be vulnerable to gender-based violence, they do not necessarily share the same kind of belonging to the state. This means that markers of identity and power, such as gender, nationality, ethnicity, religion and religiosity, and socio-economic and geographic location, matter when it comes to safety and pathways to justice. The study centers on Israel, where a number of factors bring connections between the cultural politics of the state and domestic violence into stark relief: the presence of a contentious multinational and multiethnic population; competing and overlapping sets of religious and civil laws; a growing gap between the wealthy and the poor; and the dominant presence of a security state in people's everyday lives. The exact combination of these factors is unique to Israel, but they are typical of states with a diverse population in a time of globalization. In this way, the example of Israel offers insights wherever the political and personal impinge on one another. "-- Provided by publisher.
