Street-level bureaucracy concerns a vital part of the ways in which public policy programmes are implemented, particularly through the relationship between public officials and individual citizens. Addressing the state of the art and providing a systematic exploration of the theoretical and methodological issues at stake, this Research Handbook is a crucial contribution to the analysis of public policy from the perspective of the ground floor of government. The Research Handbook covers theoretical themes in current research such as institutional theory, social inequality, national culture, discrimination and representation, digitalization, and accountability. Analyzing the role of teachers, police officers and other street-level bureaucrats, chapters explore how these individuals implement policies through their daily contact with citizens. Further sections investigate the methodological tools for research, as well as the future challenges facing the area. Peter Hupe concludes with lessons for the study of street-level bureaucracy and a significant research agenda for the topic. Essential reading for researchers of government, politics, public administration, public management, public policy and social policy, the Research Handbook on Street-Level Bureaucracy is the defining reference for understanding public policy in action in everyday life.

A new and important bibliographical addition to travel and adventure in the American West, this work expands on the basic reference work in the field, "The Plains and the Rockies: A Critical Bibliography of Exploration, Adventure and Travel in the American West, 1800-1865, " begun by Henry R. Wagner and continued by Charles L. Camp and Robert H. Becker.
A direct but independent outgrowth of David A. White's 8-volume series, "News of the Plains and Rockies, 1803-1865" (Spokane, Washington, 1996-2001), this bibliography contains accounts discovered during the series' development and production which fit the guidelines of Wagner-Camp and Becker, but that were not included in their listings.
Wagner's basic bibliography expanded from 349 items to 700 from its first issue in 1920 to the Becker revision of 1982. This new work adds 120 items to the catalog. The additions proposed emphasize genuine travels, but also include a few historic armchair documents and one piece of fiction. Many are from government documents, some from magazine articles, and a few from the more important and early newspaper accounts. Some promotional tracts are added, as well.
The names of those whose sources are listed include Ezekiel Williams (his pioneering journeys to Colorado), John Ball (his earliest printed account of Oregon settlers), William Walker (the 1833 letter that touched off the Oregon missionary movement), Virginia E.B. Reed (her account of the Donner Party, 1847), Julia Archibald Holmes (her letter on her 1858 ascent of Pike's Peak), Gov. James Douglas (his 1858-62 first reports of the Fraser River and Cariboo gold rushes), Theodore Judah (his 1860 defining document for the Central Pacific Railroad), Charles Farrar Browne (humorist Artemus Ward's 1864 travels among the Mormons), and Lucinda Eubank and Nancy Morton (their 1864-65 captivities).
The Reprints: A sampling of 33 of the 120 additions to the bibliography, judged to be the more important or appealing, is reprinted here in the format adopted by the News of the Plains series, with detailed introductions by the editor. The items reprinted are the best of the shortest accounts. Many of these short items are also of the greatest historical interest, including the first good record of fur hunting in the Rocky Mountains, the first enunciation of the Great American Desert concept, the first government report on the Missouri fur trade, the first tribute to the explorations of Jedediah Smith, the first article on white women crossing the Rockies, the first notice of Whitman's famous winter ride, the first official Mormon confirmation of their intended Western haven, the first word on Aubry's record horseback ride, the first news of the Gunnison and Grattan massacres, and the first reports of American scientific explorations overland to Alaska.
Though independent of the "News of the Plains and Rockies" series, this volume offers a fine conclusion to the eight volume set, and is designed to complement the series.
The book contains an introduction, annotated bibliography, reprints, appendix listings and index, as well as facsimiles and illustrations. Printed on acid-free paper and bound in maroon linen cloth with foil stamped spine and front cover. Issued in an edition of 1000 copies.
Offering a regular and accessible source of longitudinal information that emphasizes the previous year??'s developments, "Brassey's Eurasian Security Yearbook" details trends in security policies and shifts in personnel responsibilities and strategic emphases.

Additionally, the reference emphasizes the role of GIS in business and mobile intelligence. By offering more diversified GIS-related topics from theory and research than most of the other available literature, the authors equip newcomers to the field with principles as well as applications. With an accessible breadth of content and intuitive A-Z organization, this new edition of the encyclopedia is an invaluable reference for newcomers to the field of GIS, as well as researchers, students, developers and professionals who are interested in exploring this new dynamic area. Praise For The First Edition: "The focus here, however, is on the mathematical and computational aspects of GIS ... .

This is also very welcome to the researcher or graduate student within any of the interdisciplinary areas that use GIS. ... I highly recommend it." (Pascal V.

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division geography students through professionals." (C. E. Smith, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008) "The encyclopedia is divided into 41 fields, each one an important sub-area within GIS. ... the editors' organization of the material and comprehensive and systematic approach are superb and shall give students, eager readers as well as researchers an understanding of the topics in quite full depth and breadth. ... is lavishly illustrated with figures, graphs and tables, the design and execution of which are as perfect as the material they illustrate. ... it is sturdy and opens out nicely for study and reference."

From David and Goliath in biblical times to the recent military actions in Iraq, great battles have an enormous impact on the shaping of history. Now, in this beautifully illustrated reference work, one hundred of the world's most important military confrontations from 1469 BC to 1991 are described in detail. 100 Decisive Battles gives us not only the cold, hard facts about each battle but also their historical context.

Among the battles presented are the Battle of Thymbra (546 BC), the Battle of Chalons (451 AD), the Battle of Cajamarca (1532), the Battle of Dien Bien Phu (1954), and the Tet Offensive (1968). And, accompanying maps and interesting sidebars help orient us to each military action.

It is also essential for all military buffs with its stirring entries on familiar battles as well as many lesser known, yet still exciting, military conflicts.
