The Emergence of Probability: A Philosophical Study of Early Ideas about Probability, Induction and ...
Cambridge University Press
excellent historical account of probability theory at its infancy
This is the second edition of a book originally published in 1975. The main addition seems to be a large chapter-like section titled "Introduction 2006: The Archaeology of probable reasoning" that puts the work in contect with the thinking, research and publications from 1975-2006 that relate to the topic of the book. The main premise of the book is that although probabilistic ideas may have ...
Emergence: Labeled Autistic
Margaret M. Scariano
I work with autistic children and this book was very helpful to me in understanding them better. I think the book "Thinking In Pictures" was the most helpful of these books.
The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why (emersion: Emergent Village resources for ...
Whither the Church
Although a real historian would run screaming from her quick and superficial run through 2000 years of history, her thesis merits thought. It provides a helpful context to understand what is happening in and around Christianity in these times and in "organized religion" generally. The broad perspective she offers helps those of us who care about the future of the Church a broader vision of the ...

The Christian Tradition: A History of the Development of Doctrine, Vol. 1: The Emergence of the Catholic ...
University Of Chicago Press
An absolute and unequivocal must-read for any Christian
Seldom does a book capture such breadth in its scope while nonetheless maintaining a profundity of depth as does this initial volume in Pelikan's monumental 5 volume series on the history of the development of doctrine. The reader should know going into this (and Pelikan himself makes this abundantly clear in his intro, and numerous times throughout this book and the other 4 volumes) that this ...
The Shaping of American Higher Education: Emergence and Growth of the Contemporary System
Arthur M. Cohen
Carrie B. Kisker
5 star rewiew for Cohen & Kisker's 2nd edition of The Shaping of American Higher Education
As the saying goes, "those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it." I feel it is essential for anyone involved in higher education to understand its history, its great leaps forward, and its mistakes so that they can build on prior successes and avoid making similar errors. Cohen and Kisker's second edition of The Shaping of American Higher Education: Emergence and Growth of the ...
Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
the interesting thing about this book is the constant epiphanies you'll get. in many cases you will find yourself thinking, "my god, why didn't i notice that?" furthermore, it will change your perceptions of everyday actions and motions of yourself and others. rarely has a single book provided such insight into such a wonderfully simple and mystifying aspect of our existence. brilliant. stu
Emergence: From Chaos To Order (Helix Books)
John H. Holland

Expands on Holland's previous book Hidden Order. It presents an interesting method for understanding complexity and emergence. Highly recommended for those attempting to understand complex adaptive systems.
The Great Game: The Emergence of Wall Street as a World Power: 1653-2000
John Steele Gordon
Some very helpful context for citizens
It's useful to point out to a potential reader how well the author lays out the background and context surrounding Wall Street and Washington DC. I think a couple of things deserve mentioning from my own reading that I feel will be useful to Americans trying to understand current economic and political events: 1) Wall Street and Washington have both had a hand in the financial affairs of the ...

The modern states of Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Brunei, and East Timor were once a tapestry of kingdoms, colonies, and smaller polities linked by sporadic trade and occasional war.

The Emergence of Sociological Theory
Jonathan H. Turner
Good and succinct, structured textbook
J. Turner has been famous for his textbook on sociological theory. for example his 'The Structure of Sociological Theory' was now out of print for its content is so out of date that it would rather write whole other book than update. to keep up with the current, the volume of book should be too bulky to be used on class. but it was very concise and adaquately structured account on theoretical ...

The Emergence of the American University
Laurence R. Veysey

The invention of the modern university
By around 1910,according to Veywey, the Old Time College had been reinvented and the modern graduate school tacked onto it. The three functions of the new hybrid were to be teaching, research, and public service. This book is as scholarly and as delightful to read as Samuel Eliot Morison's histories of Harvard.
Russia's Wars of Emergence 1460-1730
Scooped by Davies
Unfortunately for the author, Brian L Davies produced a book (Warfare, State and Society on the Black Sea Steppe, 1500-1700) that covers the same topic in much more detail. Steven's prose is better and either can be read.
Social Emergence: Societies As Complex Systems
R. Keith Sawyer
Cambridge University Press
Overview of Complex Social Systems
This book is a great overview of the state of understanding and research in and around complex social systems. I found this a good foundation for deeper digging, particularly understanding what happens in some of the social networks on the web as they scale. As it is academic in nature (although rather accessible for non-accademics) it is well footnoted and annotated, making it easy to dig ...
