¡Anda! Curso intermedio 1/e is the first Intermediate Spanish book conceptualized from the outset to meet the needs of today's language teachers and learners. It covers the last 2 semesters in the 4-semester ¡Anda! program. In the last few years, classroom contact hours have been reduced drastically, class sizes have increased and students' lives have become busier than ever. Instructors don't have time to cover everything that they feel is needed and more is being asked of them with fewer resources. At the same time, language teachers want to spend as much time exposing students to Hispanic culture and practicing communication as they do with grammar. But, there simply isn't enough time or resources. The result: Many instructors end up galloping through their elementary Spanish text at the expense of their Intermediate course to try to give students the broadest grammatical exposure possible. Now they have a new option: ¡Anda! This Books á la Carte Edition is an unbound, three-hole punched version of the textbook and provides students the opportunity to personalize their book by incorporating their own notes and taking only the portion of the book they need to class — all at an affordable price.

A practical, applied approach to "what works" in policing Based on the author's thirty-plus years of policing and academic experience, Policing America: Challenges and Best Practices, Ninth Edition, offers a problem-solving approach that emphasizes what is actually working in the field. Throughout the book, dozens of current exhibits, additional cases studies, Career Profiles, and real-world problem-solving examples bring the "what works" theme alive for the reader.

Organized to flow smoothly for the instructor and student, this edition continues to provide a penetrating view of one of the most difficult and demanding occupations in America: policing! The Ninth Edition addresses head-on the most challenging aspects of policing in our age. New emphases include methods of policing a diverse society-particularly disenfranchised minorities in the "post-Ferguson" era and a call for re-examination of police methods-as well as the fight against terrorism and applications of new information technologies. In addition, chapters examine major issues and formidable crime problems, crime prevention, changing agency culture, evaluating problem-solving initiatives, cyberbullying and cybercrime, special populations, and the future of policing.

Since its original publication in 1999, this foundational book has become a classic in its field. This second edition, Code Version 2.0, updates the work and was prepared in part through a wiki, a web site allowing readers to edit the text, making this the first reader-edited revision of a popular book. Code counters the common belief that cyberspace cannot be controlled or censored. To the contrary, under the influence of commerce, cyberspace is becoming a highly regulable world where behavior will be much more tightly controlled than in real space. We can - we must - choose what kind of cyberspace we want and what freedoms it will guarantee. These choices are all about architecture: what kind of code will govern cyberspace, and who will control it. In this realm, code is the most significant form of law and it is up to lawyers, policymakers, and especially average citizens to decide what values that code embodies.
