Food, economics and health / Alok Bhargava. - Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2008. - XI, 221 s. : il. ; 25 cm.
Bibliogr. s. 188-203. Indeks.
Drawing on the author's extensive and varied research, this book provides readers with a firm grounding in the concepts and issues across several disciplines including economics, nutrition, psychology and public health in the hope of improving the design of food policies in the developed and developing world. Using longitudinal (panel) data from India, Bangladesh, Kenya, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Pakistan and extending the analytical framework used in economics and biomedical sciences to include multi-disciplinary analyses, Alok Bhargava shows how rigorous and thoughtful econometric and statistical analysis can improve our understanding of the relationships between a number of socioeconomic, nutritional, and behavioural variables on a number of issues like cognitive development in children and labour productivity in the developing world. These unique insights combined with a multi-disciplinary approach forge the way for a more refined and effective approach to food policy formation going forward. A chapter on the growing obesity epidemic is also included, highlighting the new set of problems facing not only developed but developing countries. The book also includes a glossary of technical terms to assist readers coming from a variety of disciplines.

Focus on Britain today : cultural studies for the language classroom / Clare Lavery. - Ed. 1, repr. - London, Basingstoke : Macmillan Publishers Ltd, 1994. - 122 s. : il., fot. (w tym kol.) ; 28 cm.
(Macmillan Focus Series)
The "Macmilllan Focus" series provides background material which is designed to present a series of "insiders' views" of that world. "Focus on Britain Today" has been developed especially for students at secondary level, who are required to learn about British "civilisation" as part of their language studies. It uses up-to-date information and communicative methodology to provide motivating practice based on those aspects of the country in the 1990s which are relevant to learners of today. The topic-based language practice involves the input of information from textual, diagrammatic and visual sources. Specific language items are clearly presented and practised, and unfamiliar language carefully glossed. The emphasis throughout is on the exploration of and discovery about the target society in relation to the student's own - and, above all, those aspects of both which are relevant, and of interest to adolescents today.
