"This is a superb book. By presenting basic sociological topics in terms of the paradoxes they contain, O'Brien situates the discipline and its subject matter in historical and intellectual context, while using examples that are contemporary, accessible, and of interest and relevance to students. I look forward to using Social Prisms in my sociology courses and to the animated class discussions that I'm sure her book will engender." --Anita Ilta Garey, University of New Hampshire "Pine Forge Press has done it again! Social Prisms bolsters the well-deserved reputation of Pine Forge Press for publishing serious and innovative yet interesting and accessible works for undergraduate sociology courses. Students will enjoy O'Brien's frequent references to the popular culture (sports, television, movies) which is so central to their existence outside the classroom, and be challenged by her call to embrace rather than resolve the many paradoxes of contemporary social life in America." --David Yamane, University of Notre Dame

In sharp contrast to today's foreboding, politically correct posturing, there is a formula that measures "all things"-in the same precise way that we know with certainty that two plus two equals four. However, the world continues to search for this universal truth until it faces its old enemy head on and looks him straight in the eye.Paradox: The Rejected Cornerstone vindicates this marvelous prototype, proving emphatically, once and for all, that a paradox is not a contradiction, as it so easily appears. Author Jane Weir details the composition of the paradox and, for the first time, discloses its incredible logistical and mathematical laws. Embark on an eye-opening journey into the mysterious and obscure realm of truth. Understanding will be yours, once you observe this ubiquitous equation, revealing life's universal blueprint. Therefore, it is with great hope that the educated and uneducated alike will come to see that life is not a contradiction, as is commonly perceived. It is instead, a paradox, not an accidental and misfortunate stumbling block, but a magnificently complex, creatively designed information source.

A Classroom-Tested, Alternative Approach to Teaching Math for Liberal Arts Puzzles, Paradoxes, and Problem Solving: An Introduction to Mathematical Thinking uses puzzles and paradoxes to introduce basic principles of mathematical thought. The text is designed for students in liberal arts mathematics courses. Decision-making situations that progress from recreational problems to important contemporary applications develop the critical-thinking skills of non-science and non-technical majors. The logical underpinnings of this textbook were developed and refined throughout many years of classroom feedback and in response to commentary from presentations at national conferences. The text’s five units focus on graphs, logic, probability, voting, and cryptography. The authors also cover related areas, such as operations research, game theory, number theory, combinatorics, statistics, and circuit design. The text uses a core set of common representations, strategies, and algorithms to analyze diverse games, puzzles, and applications. This unified treatment logically connects the topics with a recurring set of solution approaches. Requiring no mathematical prerequisites, this book helps students explore creative mathematical thinking and enhance their own critical-thinking skills. Students will acquire quantitative literacy and appreciation of mathematics through the text’s unified approach and wide range of interesting applications.
