This book presents the Proceedings of the Fourth High Point Hospital Symposium on Attention Deficit Disorder. This symposium was characterised by both current and retrospective reviews of several existing research programs in ADD, and focused on the very recent history of ADD, paralleling the thrust towards preeminence of the clinical neurosciences. The format of the Symposium was designed to link emerging trends in the area to their immediate historical background. Several young researchers were invited to give their status reports on their current research programs. Each of these individuals was also asked to nominate a mentor, who had exerted a career directing influence, to comment on the status report. Taken together, these presentations, along with the retrospective commentaries of the mentors will give the reader a comprehensive breakdown of the ADD field.

Investing legend Warren Buffett once said that “success in investing doesn’t correlate with I.Q. once you’re above the level of 125. Once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.” In an attempt to understand exactly what kind of temperament Buffett was talking about, Ronald W. Chan interviewed 12 value-investing legends from around the world, learning how their personal background, culture, and life experiences have shaped their investment mindset and strategy. The Value Investors: Lessons from the World’s Top Fund Managers is the result. From 106-year-old Irving Kahn, who worked closely with “father of value investing” Benjamin Graham and remains active today, and 95-year-old Walter Schloss (described by Warren Buffett as the “super-investor from Graham-and-Dodsville”), to the co-founders of Hong Kong-based Value Partners, Cheah Cheng Hye and V-Nee Yeh, and Francisco García Paramés of Spain’s Bestinver Asset Management, Chan chose investment luminaries to help him understand the international appeal – and success – of value investing. All of these men became strong advocates of the approach despite considerable age and cultural differences. Chan finds out why. In The Value Investors, readers will also discover how these investors, each of whom has a unique value perspective, have consistently beaten the stock market over the years. Do they share a trait that allows this to happen? Is there a winning temperament that turns the ordinary investor into an extraordinary one? This book answers these questions and more.

"Far from a dictionary, the concepts are portrayed as complex, and conflicting definitions and usages are both noted and evaluated... Each article includes a (necessarily selective) set of references, and cross-references to other concepts included in the book... Moreover, the coverage and evaluation of the concepts is right at the current leading edge in a rapidly moving field." - Victor Marshall, Department of Sociology and Institute on Aging, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "The concepts are very clear and very relevant, and fantastic for my group of undergraduate students... I found each concept to be succinctly and simply captured, holding enough information to satisfy initial cravings and complex enough to tempt further reading... I had originally thought that this book would provide supplementary reading as part of my 'Healthy Ageing' course, but have changed my mind to essential reading now I have had the opportunity to read the entire book." - Dr Meredith Tavener, Groningen University Social gerontology is a new and dynamic field reflecting the increasing interest in ageing across the world. This book provides a readily accessible guide to well established and contested issues, as well as new concepts emerging through cutting edge research in the discipline. The entries give concise, lucid knowledge on what constitutes the 'building blocks' of social gerontology and sets out a clear review of the core concepts, both classic and emerging, in this subject area. Each concept is explored in terms of its history, application, usefulness to theory and research, and significance in practice. They go beyond simple definitions of the concepts to look at how each issue has shaped the discipline of social gerontology today. This book is authored by social gerontologists from the UK and the USA. Together they present an interdisciplinary perspective and reflect a global approach to the presentation of key concepts in social gerontology.

For decades there has been considerable interest in the ways that interactions between children can provide a beneficial context for the study of cognitive and social development. In this book Psaltis and Zapiti use both theoretical and empirical research to build on the perspectives of Piaget, Vygotsky, Moscovici, and others including the legacy of Gerard Duveen, to offer a state of the art account of research on the themes of social interaction and cognitive development. Interaction Communication and Development discusses the significance of social identities for social interaction and cognitive development. The empirical set of studies presented and discussed focus on patterns of communication between children as they work together to solve problems. Communications are examined in detail with a focus on: Socio-cognitive conflict, conversational moves and conversation types The way the different forms of the interactions relate to different sources of asymmetry in the classroom The way social representations and social identities of gender are negotiated in the interaction This book provides an important account of how children develop through different kinds of social interactions. It will have considerable appeal for researchers in the fields of developmental psychology, socio-cultural psychology, social representations theory and education who wish to gain a deeper understanding of development and its relation to socio-cultural processes.
