Ethiopia's Agrifood System: Past Trends, Present Challenges, and Future Scenarios by Paul Dorosh 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Ethiopia has experienced impressive agricultural growth and poverty reduction, stemming in part from substantial public investments in agriculture. Yet, the agriculture sector now faces increasing land and water constraints along with other challenges to growth. In Ethiopia's Agrifood System: Past Trends, Present Challenges, and Future Scenarios, researchers from the International Food Policy Research Institute and other experts present a forward-looking analysis of Ethiopia's agrifood system in the context of a rapidly changing economy. Growth in the agriculture sector remains essential to continued poverty reduction in Ethiopia and will depend on sustained investment in the agrifood system, especially private sector investment. Many of the policies for a successful agricultural and rural development strategy for Ethiopia are relevant for other African countries, as well. Ethiopia's Agrifood System should be a valuable resource for policymakers, development specialists, and others concerned with economic development in Africa south of the Sahara.

An American Legacy: Racism, Nativism, and White Supremacy by David R. Morse (PYP Academy Press) 5.0 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

For many Americans, the rise of white supremacy is a recent phenomenon. The truth is quite the contrary. In this book, David R. Morse details how racism and nativism have been constants in America, from the founding of Jamestown to the administration of Donald Trump. The most egregious example of racism has been directed at African Americans, who came to this country not of their own free will, but as slaves. From the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, to Black Lives Matter, the struggle for equality has been ongoing and so often contested by Whites. Additionally, as various immigrant groups have come to the U.S., the public and the government have responded by vilifying them, often with violence, once they arrive. This book makes a cogent argument that people who are, or were, different from the country's white Anglo founders have always been viewed with suspicion. At the same time, Blacks and immigrant groups have contributed to the nation's growth and the development of a national identity. With individual chapters for specific ethnic groups, this book explores the implications of race and ethnicity on science and the Census, and how racial classifications and theories have changed over time. Morse also looks to the future and examines various evidence that points to the role of race in the coming decades, as America's White population approaches less than half the U.S. population.

The Critique of Judgment (Theory of the Aesthetic Judgment & Theory of the Teleological Judgment): Critique of the Power of Judgment from the Author ... by Immanuel Kant (e-artnow ebooks) 4.3 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

The Critique of Judgment, also translated as the Critique of the Power of Judgment and more commonly referred to as the third Critique, is a philosophical work by Immanuel Kant. Critique of Judgment completes the Critical project begun in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of Practical Reason (the first and second Critiques, respectively). The book is divided into two main sections: the Critique of Aesthetic Judgment and the Critique of Teleological Judgment, and also includes a large overview of the entirety of Kant's Critical system, arranged in its final form. The end result of Kant's Critical Project is that there are certain fundamental antinomies in human Reason, most particularly that there is a complete inability to favor on the one hand the argument that all behavior and thought is determined by external causes, and on the other that there is an actual "spontaneous" causal principle at work in human behavior. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) was a German philosopher, who, according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is "the central figure of modern philosophy." Kant argued that fundamental concepts of the human mind structure human experience, that reason is the source of morality, that aesthetics arises from a faculty of disinterested judgment, that space and time are forms of our understanding, and that the world as it is "in-itself" is unknowable. Kant took himself to have effected a Copernican revolution in philosophy, akin to Copernicus' reversal of the age-old belief that the sun revolved around the earth.

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Ethics of Immanuel Kant: Metaphysics of Morals - Philosophy of Law & The Doctrine of Virtue + Perpetual Peace + The Critique of Practical Reason: Theory of Moral Reasoning" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysics of Morals, also known as the Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals, is the first of Immanuel Kant's mature works on moral philosophy and remains one of the most influential in the field. Kant conceives his investigation as a work of foundational ethics -- one that clears the ground for future research by explaining the core concepts and principles of moral theory and showing that they are normative for rational agents. Kant aspires to nothing less than this: to lay bare the fundamental principle of morality and show that it applies to us. The Metaphysics of Morals is a work of political and moral philosophy by Immanuel Kant. The work is divided into two main parts, "The Science of Right, which deals with the rights that people have or can acquire, and the Doctrine of Virtue, which deals with the virtues they ought to acquire." The Critique of Practical Reason is the second of Immanuel Kant's three critiques and deals with his moral philosophy. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) was a German philosopher, who, according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is "the central figure of modern philosophy."

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Humanness of Women: Theory and Practice of Feminism (Essays and Sketches)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prominent American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis. Women and Economics - A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman's writing, the book touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument: "the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement.

The History of Eternity by James E. Winder 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

You cannot help but wonder what and why you are. The History of Eternity is a book that again and again answers these questions, as it celebrates the tragic joy of wonder at the enigma of your existence. There will always be a clamoring after elusive fact. There will always be a hankering for some durable theory that will explain the fact. There will always be an inability to match the one wholly with the other. Because something is always left out, there will always persist a stubbornly invisible and intractable remainder. And this remainder, this dark matter behind every thought, behind every desire, behind every joy, behind every sorrow, will continue to populate your universe with wonder. Read this book, if you will, and share that wonder. You are born into a conspiracy of significance, already entangled with your equally lonely others. The history of eternity, the tension between nowhere and now here, defines the struggle between the life you are living now and whatever there may be of the life to come. The History of Eternity is a series of broken elegies to those who have mattered, to their moments and your moments, to their sanity and your sanity, to their madness and your madness. The History of Eternity is one man's meditation on the reverberating shock of his encounter with Henry Adams, Aristotle, Augustine, Bach, Balzac, Beckett, Bergson, Bloch, Boehme, Bonhoeffer, Cervantes, Chekhov, Cicero, Claudel, Dante, Darwin, Derrida, Emily Dickinson, Dostoevsky, Eckhart, Emerson, Ezekiel, Faulkner, Gide, Goethe, Heraclitus, Herodotus, Hume, Isaiah, Henry James, Jeremiah, Samuel Johnson, Kafka, Kierkegaard, D.H.

Faith In Doubt: Do You Question Your Faith? by Jarin Jove 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

If you are a religious believer, have you ever had doubts about your religious faith? Have you found yourself questioning your faith sometimes and finding yourself unable to let go of such questions? Have you found responses by others to your questions to be dissatisfying? Then, please consider reading Faith In Doubt. If you're unsure, ask yourself: would you prefer to live your life with honesty and integrity or would you instead prefer to possibly keep living a lie because questioning your faith feels uncomfortable to you? This book is the completion of a four-year project that attempts to critique religion using a multifaceted approach. It is broken up into Two Parts. In the first portion of this book is a critique of the general issues of religion by using cognitive and social psychology, logical fallacies, a Nietzschean philosophical perspective on different aspects of religion, and relevant Political Science subjects pertaining to religion. Part II consists of his refutation of the theological concept of Original Sin and critiques of each of the major world religions through diverse approaches specifically made for each religion: all religions contain different internal structures within their theology and therefore different approaches are needed. Faith in Doubt challenges the historical record of Judaism and its impact on contemporary Jewish societies across the world. He critiques Christianity through a similar approach as Part I. He examines and repudiates Islamic theology by exposing the fallacies of its theological conceptualization of the world and the dangers that it poses to the West's Enlightenment values, to the progress made by Feminism, and to Secular Republics from the US to India. Lastly, the two major Dharmic faiths are explored and why they need either reform or rejection. The original intent of Faith in Doubt was to critique religions between their positive and negative aspects, but because of the findings of four years of research and ...
