Invasive nonindigenous species -- plants and animals that have been introduced to an ecosystem from someplace else -- are wreaking havoc around the globe. Because they did not co-evolve with species already in the ecosystem, they can profoundly disturb species interactions and ecosystem function.The state of Florida has one of the most severe exotic species problems in the country; as much as a quarter of many taxa in Florida are nonnative, and millions of acres of land and water are dominated by nonindigenous species. Strangers in Paradise provides an in-depth examination of the Florida experience and of the ongoing efforts to eradicate or manage introduced species. Chapters consider: natural disturbance and the spread of nonindigenous species case studies of insects, freshwater invertebrates, fishes, amphibians and reptiles, birds, marine invertebrates and algae, and mammals methods of managing nonindigenous species including ecological restoration, eradication, "maintenance control," and biological control management on public lands the regulatory framework including the role of the federal government as well as state authorities and responsibilities Strangers in Paradise is the first comprehensive volume to address a large, diverse region and the full range of nonindigenous species, the problems they cause, and the methods and impediments to dealing with them. Throughout, contributors emphasize solutions and relate the situation in Florida to problems faced by other states, making the book an important guide for anyone involved with control and management of invasive species.

The literature on the Kibbutz is large and sprawling. This stands in marked contrast to the intimacy and proximity of the individuals who have actually participated in the life of the Kibbutz. In this quite remarkable work, David Mittelberg succeeds in capturing the specific life styles and aspirations of the Kibbutzniks. And he does so by integrating this within the broad and rich traditions of the sociology of culture and religion. Strangers in Paradise provides a massive amount of current data on Jewish and non-Jewish volunteers, division of labor by sex and language of origins, demographic characteristics of Kibbutz hosts and recruits, and a variety of attitude measures far beyond any other work in the literature. But what gives special value to this effort is its unusual utilization of the phenomenological tradition - from Simmel to Schutz, to Berger and Luckmann - along with recent efforts in organization and negotiation theory - from Blau to Goffman - in order to explicate this massive data. A special element in this volume is the central place accorded to voluntarism in an open culture. For Mittelberg, membership in the Kibbutz is at its core a voluntary act of individuals who commit their lives, or a portion thereof, to a collective movement in a strange land. This is a study then in "intentional communities" rather than Utopian organizations. The synthesis of the concrete and the abstract, the empirical and the theoretical, will establish Mittelberg's volume as a new standard in Kibbutz studies.

Lernen Sie die Radleys kennen, eine total verbissene Familie Auf den ersten Blick wirken sie wie eine ganz normale Familie: Vater Peter ist Arzt, Mutter Helen kümmert sich um die beiden pubertierenden Kinder Clara und Rowan. Doch warum erstickt Peter fast am thailändischen Salat, warum nimmt jedes Tier vor Clara Reißaus und warum kann Rowan nachts nicht schlafen und hat trotz Lichtschutzfaktor 60 Probleme mit der Haut? Das Geheimnis der Radleys ist so unfassbar wie offensichtlich: Sie sind abstinente Vampire! Vor diesem Augenblick hat sich Helen Radley ein Leben lang gefürchtet: Sie und ihr Mann müssen ihren Kindern endlich sagen, was mit ihnen los ist, nachdem ihre Tochter Clara in Notwehr kräftig zugebissen hat – jetzt gibt es eine Leiche und ein dickes Problem. Ihr Mann Peter ruft gegen ihren Willen seinen Bruder, den charismatischen und ganz und gar nicht abstinenten Will zur Hilfe. Während die Kinder noch zu verstehen versuchen, was diese Enthüllung für ihr weiteres Leben bedeutet, sich Helen um Schadensbegrenzung bemüht und Peter darüber nachdenkt, ob nicht doch ein gelegentlicher Tropfen Blut dem Wohlbefinden förderlich ist, bricht Will in die ländliche Idylle ein und stiftet zusätzlichen Unfrieden. Zwar kann er zunächst die Polizei von der Unschuld Claras überzeugen, doch dann erwachen neue Lüste, die die ganze Familie an den Rand der Katastrophe bringen ... Matt Haig hat ein Kunststück vollbracht: Er hat einen intelligenten, witzigen und spannenden Vampirroman geschrieben, der selbst diejenigen, die nicht zu den Fans dieses Genres zählen, von der ersten Seite an in den Bann zieht und durch die Kapitel jagen lässt wie weiland Christopher Lee als Graf Dracula auf einem Pferd durch Transsilvanien.

New Strangers in Paradise offers the first in-depth account of the ways in which contemporary American fiction has been shaped by the successive generations of immigrants to reach U.S. shores. Gilbert Muller reveals how the intersections of peoples, regions, and competing cultural histories have remade the American cultural landscape in the aftermath of World War II. Muller focuses on the literature of Holocaust survivors, Chicanos, Latinos, African Caribbeans, and Asian Americans. In the quest for a new identity, each of these groups seeks the American dream and rewrites the story of what it means to be an American. New Strangers in Paradise explores the psychology of uprooted peoples and the relations of culture and power, addressing issues of race and ethnicity, multiculturalism and pluralism, and national and international conflicts. Examining the groups of immigrants in the cultural and historical context both of America and of the lands from which they originated, Muller argues that this "fourth wave" of immigration has led to a creative flowering in modern fiction. The book offers a fresh perspective on the writings of Vladimir Nabokov, Sual Bellow, William Styron, Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, Oscar Hijuelos, Jamaica Kincaid, Bharati Mukherjee, Rudolfo Anaya, and many others.
