Persistence of Memory
Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Finally back to the vampires
Persistence of Memory is Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' first vampire book since the Keisha'ra series. Her writing style has matured since her last vampire book, but her ability to keep you interested has not. I do feel like I missed some things between her books though. She throws a vampire and a Triste together previous perceptions said the two don't mix. There are, of course, execptions to every rule, ...
The Persistence of Memory: A Novel
W. W. Norton & Company
"What will become of us all?"
South Africa from 1968 - 2000 is revealed in all its cultural variety and internal stresses through the life story of Paul Sweetbread, an overweight Jewish boy who is an outsider to everyone. Neither a Boer nor an Englishman, he is also not really a Jew, since his family has never been observant, leaving him without any common roots that connect him to his Caucasian countrymen. A person with a ...
The Persistence of Poverty: Why the Economics of the Well-Off Can't Help the Poor
Prof. Charles H. Karelis
Yale University Press
Economics of poverty: Redefined
In the late seventies serious attempts were made to distinguish "absolute" from "relative" poverty. In 1972 the annual speech of the President of the World Bank, then Mr Robert McNamarra, a speech delivered in Nairobi, was entirely focused on the fight on poverty. Twenty five years later there are tons of WB reports written about world poverty as well as progress reports how poverty has been ...
Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java? Persistence API (Expert's Voice in Java Technology)
By no stretch of the imagination could you believe the JPA 2.0 specification goes into detail better
With mixed feelings I'm writing the book review of "Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API" by Mike Keith and Merrick Schincariol (Apress, December 2009). On the one hand I'd highly recommend the book to anyone who is interested in the JPA 2.0 specification and doesn't anticipate reading more than a single book about JPA (to have a complete understanding of the subject), but on the other ...
Java Persistence with JPA

The book tackles the complexities of persistence technologies by quickly getting you started and then taking deep dives into the many features offered by JPA. Many different scenarios for using JPA are explored including stand alone, web/EJB containers and the application of different ...
Persistence and Change in Rural Communities:
A E Luloff
R S Krannich
In the 1930s and 1940s the US Department of Agriculture undertook detailed studies of six US rural communities representing various patterns of social and economic change that were affecting rural America. These studies became classics in the literature on rural communities, and for the past half-century have helped to develop major theoretical perspectives in community sociology.Fifty years later the same study areas were revisited by a team of ...
Java Persistence with Hibernate

Well written with comprehensive and indepth coverage of the subject. I high recommend this book.
The Persistence of Yellow: Book of Recipes for Life
Compendium Publishing & Communications
Just Plain Happy...
I found this book in a small store in Woodstock and fell in love. I am actually going to order several to give to close friends. I love the fun quirkiness of the quotes. This book just gives me warm fuzzy feelings and I love the illustrations. Some people may not think they are great but look at the amount of expression in each person drawn - the illustrator injects all of that without ever ...
Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
An Amazing and Fresh Perspective
Bonilla-Silva takes on one of the most pervasive myths in our society by effectively deconstructing and points out the FACT that we have NOT reached a TRUE pluralist (AKA multicultural) society. He also shows that the only thing that's changed when it comes to race and racism in our society is how we talk about it. (Whites have especially changed in this regard.) This is a VERY useful book, ...
Creation and the Persistence of Evil
Jon D. Levenson
Princeton University Press
Bold, persuasive, and thought-provoking
Creation and the Persistence of Evil is a startling and challenging book. Levenson makes a compelling case for the idea that the act of creation consisted (and consists!) of God's mastering preexistent forces of chaos rather than the simple, unopposed production of something out of nothing--and that these forces were not vanquished but continue to exist under restraints that are subject to ...
The Persistence of the Classical: Essays on Architecture Presented to David Watkin
Philip Wilson Publishers
In this beautifully illustrated volume, fifteen distinguished writers on architecture mark the retirement of Professor David Watkin from the University of Cambridge. Linked by the common theme of classicism, the chapters are divided into three sections. The first is concerned with architectural ideas and includes essays on Renaissance interpretations of Vitruvius, Roman Catholic Chapels in post-Reformation London, and architectural writers John ...
A Defiant Life: Thurgood Marshall and the Persistence of Racism in America
Three Rivers Press
It's never only black or white
Gut wrenching in its honesty,thought provoking in the truest sense of the word. It allowed me to take a step back from racial madness and see through another pair of eyes. No law can change people's attitudes, morality is judged by the majority, this book shows us. And yet it had a hopeful note beneath the surface. Initially I was put off by the inhuman, thesis sounding title.. do not make my ...
Pro EJB 3: Java Persistence API
Great Reference for JPA
Pro EJB3 is a great book. Having been using it for over last 6 month on my recent project, I can definitely say that this book is invaluable. Have been worked on EJB 2.x for many years and on several projects with different application servers (Weblogic, JBoss, WebSphere), I understand the basics of EJB. So I want not only understand the basic how-to in EJB3 and JPA, but also want to ...

?A seminal book?extremely challenging. The historical and political implications of the ?Mayer thesis? will be widely discussed in years to come?certainly not only by specialists.??Carlo Ginzburg In this classic work which analyzes the context in which thirty years of war and revolution wracked the European continent, the great historian Arno Mayer emphasizes the backwardness of the European economies and their political subjugation by ...
So Much Reform, So Little Change: The Persistence of Failure in Urban Schools
Charles M. Payne
Harvard Education Press
Charles M. Payne gets it right in this reflection and, to some degree exposť, of educational reform. The text interprets a breadth of research primarily from the Consortium on Chicago School Research, Catalyst Chicago, and a rich smorgasbord of the more nationally recognized reform programs and initiatives. Anyone who believes that they have some promising ideas about how to go about ...
The Cigarette Century: The Rise, Fall, and Deadly Persistence of the Product That Defined America
Warning: Smoking May Be Hazardous to ...
It is difficult to find a person who has not been touched in some way by the all-encompassing reach of the tobacco industry -- from the carefully crafted marketing manipulations to the well-documented health risks associated with smoking and second hand smoke. The cigarette has featured prominently in our culture, politics, legal system and public health debates for more than a century. In ...
Persistence Of Vision
Well worth seaching for
A friend recommended this to me, and amazingly my local used bookstore had a hardcover copy! These are some of the BEST short stories I have read! Right up there with Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. There is not one clinker in the bunch. Especially liked Phantom of Kansas, Hall of the Martian Kings, The Persistance of Vision. Overdrawn at the Memory Bank was quirky and fun. (I also saw a ...
Grails Persistence with GORM and GSQL
Excellent treatment of GORM and very helpful
This is an excellent and worthwhile purchase for the beginning and intermediate Grails developer. I especially liked the 'test-driven' style used to prove his assertions on how GORM actually works. If I do have a criticism, it's that its too short. I might suggest extended examples, especially with Criteria Builder and associations, and a good set of solutions to 'gotcha's using GORM. The ...
