Scientific endeavor begins with asking questions about the nature of the world around us and gathering data, but this work cannot be complete without effectively communicating the conclusions and data found. Communicating Rocks: Writing, Speaking, and Thinking about Geology not only makes the case for balancing science with writing and speaking, but makes the case that one cannot have the former without the latter. Instruction concerning the rules and styles of writing and speaking are addressed in relation to technical concerns specific to the Earth sciences, illustrating the importance of effective communication in geologic investigations. The book includes guidance on how to write an effective research paper, and the creation of PowerPoints, posters, a thesis, funding proposals, and more is covered in detail.

Arguing for a paleocybernetic approach to current media studies debates, Nicolas Salazar Sutil develops an original framework for a new media ecology that embraces the primitive, the prehistoric, and the brute. Paying serious attention to materials used for cultural mediation that are unprocessed, unexplained, and raw such as bones and limestones, Salazar Sutil posits that advanced industrialisation of new media technology has prompted countercultural movements that call for radical new ways of transmitting culture, for instance through an experiential and high-tech appreciation of prehistoric landscape heritage. The future calls for a Palaeolithic awareness of living landscape as medium for the embodied transmission of cultural imaginaries and memories. The more media technology spurs mass forms of instantaneous media communication, the greater the need for primitive knowledge of earthling body and earthly landscape, our prime media for sustainable cultural transmission.

THE RHETORICAL ACT: THINKING, SPEAKING AND WRITING CRITICALLY, Fourth Edition, teaches liberal arts students how to craft and critique rhetorical messages that influence, inviting and enabling them to become articulate rhetors and critics of their symbolic universe. The new edition maintains a traditional humanistic approach to rhetoric, while extending the scope and relevance of the text. THE RHETORICAL ACT reaffirms the ancient Aristotelian and Ciceronian relationships between art and practice -- one cannot master rhetorical skills without an understanding of the theory on which such skills are based. The text combines thorough coverage of rhetorical criticism, media literacy, and strategic public speaking, providing a solid grounding in essential concepts while helping students hone their skills in each area.

There are moments in life when the everyday is touched by something more glorious than we usually encounter. The beauty of a summer dawn, the kindness of a stranger, the comfort of feeling held during a time of great personal difficulty - perhaps an experience like this has got us wondering. Perhaps it has got us thinking about God. Is God for Real? is the question many struggle with. So Chris Leonard spoke to people from all kinds of backgrounds and asked them to explain how their relationship with God works out in practice, during crises, but mainly in normal, everyday life. The stories she has gathered together - of real personal experience - will be an encouragement to us whether we have know God for many years, or are just feeling our way to a trusting relationship with him.

Acknowledged internationally for his ground-breaking scientific research in the field of magnetic resonance, Sir Paul Callaghan was a scientist and visionary with a rare gift for promoting science to a wide audience. He was named New Zealander of the Year in 2011. His death in early 2012 robbed New Zealand of an inspirational leader. Paul Callaghan: Luminous Moments brings together some of his most significant writing. Whether he describes his childhood in Wanganui, reflects on discovering the beauty of science, sets out New Zealand’s future potential or discusses the experience of fatherhood, Sir Paul Callaghan offers eloquent narratives that will endure in this country’s literature. Meeting with the cancer that ended his life, he documents for us all ways of living well in the face of illness. As his daughter Catherine writes in her moving foreword: 'He became his own scientific experiment.'
