Cambridge, MA: MIT Press. 319 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Game theory models are ubiquitous in economics, common in political science, and increasingly used in psychology and sociology. In evolutionary biology, they offer compelling explanations for competition in nature. But game theory has been only sporadically applied to the humanities: literature, history, and philosophy. It can illuminate the rational choices made by characters in texts ranging from the Bible to Joseph Heller's Catch-22, and can explicate strategic questions in law, history, and philosophy. Much of Brams's analysis is based on the theory of moves (TOM), which is grounded in game theory, and which he develops gradually and applies systematically throughout. ISBN: 9780262015226.

Oxford: Berg Publishers. 204 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, figures, minor edgewear, bottom corners few pages little creased. A critical look at the latest developments and key issues in anthropological fieldwork. Are reports of the death of conventional fieldwork in anthropology exaggerated? From the social space of a cybercafe to cities in India, the UK and South Africa among others, this book features ethnographic studies that provide new ways of looking at the concepts of 'locality' and 'site'. The nature of 'locality' itself is problematic for both participants and fieldworkers: it must now be maintained and represented in relation to widening and fragmenting social frames and networks. Such developments have raised questions concerning the nature of ethnographic presence and scales of comparison. Rather than taking key fieldwork processes such as globalization and mobility for granted, anthropologists are well-placed to examine and critique the totalizing assumptions behind the notions of 'locality' and 'site'.

Newbury Park, CA: Sage Publications. 120 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), minor edgewear jacket (small edge tears), old price marks. Fills a gap in the statistics literature, and provides researchers with the means to quickly determine the sample size for a particular study. Clearly illustrates why sample sizes need to be sufficiently large, so that the experiment has good power properties and hence low Type II error rates. Introduces a simple technique of statistical power analysis that allows researchers to compute approximate sample sizes and power for a wide variety of research designs. Because the same technique is used with only slight modifications for different statistical tests, researchers can easily compare the sample sizes required by different designs and tests to make cost-effective decisions in planning a study. These comparisons demonstrate important principles of design, measurement and analysis that are rarely discussed in textbooks. Therefore serves not merely as a "how-to" reference for sample size calculations but also as a guide to general principles of cost-effective research. ISBN: 0803929498. Our Book No: 14252. $15 AUD.

New York: Wiley Science. 270 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, figures, black & white text-photos, edges faintly foxed, minor edgewear. Many of the technologies discovered by accident are important in our everyday lives: Teflon, Velcro, nylon, X-rays, penicillin, safety glass, sugar substitutes and polyethylene. We also owe a debt to chance for some of our deepest scientific insights, including Newton's theory of gravitation, the big bang theory of creation, and the discovery of DNA. Even the Rosetta Stone, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the ruins of Pompeii came to light through chance. This book tells the fascinating stories of these and other discoveries and reveals how the inquisitive human mind turns accident into discovery. Written for the layman, yet scientifically accurate, this illuminating collection of anecdotes portrays invention and discovery as quintessentially human acts, due in part to curiosity, perseverance and luck.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 107 pp. Paperback trade, very good plus condition, minimal edgewear, rubber stamp. Contrast analysis permits us to ask more focused questions of our data. In return for a small amount of simple computation, we get greater statistical power, and can make clearer substantive interpretations of the research results. Contrast analysis is employed in the context of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) whenever the numerator degrees of freedom are greater than one (which is most of the time). Unfortunately, it is employed rarely by behavioural and social scientists. A non-mathematical account enabling researchers to address focused questions posed by theories, hypotheses, and hunches. Many researchers in the behavioural and social sciences, education and business should find this book useful. ISBN: 0521317987. Our Book No: 15181. $20 AUD.

Examines contrasts, which are statistical procedures for asking focused questions of data. Compared to diffuse or omnibus questions, focused questions have greater conceptual clarity and greater statistical power. If an effect truly exists, we are more likely to discover it when asking focused (rather than omnibus) questions. Researchers and teachers of research methods will be introduced to the principles and procedures of contrast analysis, and also to a series of newly developed concepts, measures, and indices that permit a wider and more useful application of contrast analysis.
