Meeting the challenge of attaining overall development has for a long time been the
preoccupation of all nations of the world. Because of the multi-faceted and allencompassing
nature of ‘development’, even the most advanced nations of the world
today are battling with many ‘developmental’ challenges. Suffice it to agree with the
notion that development is a process and not a destination.
As a long-standing advocate for understanding issues of cultural and ethnic
diversity, I have served as President of APA Division 45, Society for the
Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues, and currently chair the
American Psychological Association’s Commission for the Recruitment,
Retention and Training of Ethnic Minorities implementation task force
(CEMRRAT2). Both of these organizations were instrumental in the approval
of the APA Multicultural Guidelines for Practice and the promotion of empirical
research addressing mental health issues of ethnic minority clinical populations.

the Cultural Heritage Research Centre, University of Canberra).
Do Alaska Native People Get Free Medical Care?* (and other frequently asked questions about Alaska Native issues and cultures) has been prepared by UAA/APU faculty and Anchorage community members as a companion to the Books of the Year.

The Perl Journal (TPJ) did something most print journals aspire to, but few succeed. Within a remarkable short time, TPJ acquired a cult-following and became the voice of the Perl community. Every serious Perl programmer subscribed to it, and every notable Perl guru jumped at the opportunity to write for it. Back issues were swapped like trading cards. No longer in print format, TPJ remains the quintessential spirit of Perl--a publication for and by Perl programmers who see fun and beauty in an admittedly quirky little language....
As discussed in the Introduction to Volume One, Jennifer Simon, who was at Wiley
at the time, was instrumental in convincing me to edit the two-volume reference
Handbook on Racial-Cultural Psychology and Counseling. I agreed to take the project
through her persistence and encouragement. She prompted me to think about
what type of material would help advance the field and at the same time build on existing
research and scholarship. It was also her belief that conceptual and research
issues combined into one volume with training and practice would not be practical.
This book offers a contribution to current debates over child labor. It also
presents child labor as a problem to which various branches of international
law have made a response. Because of the broad range of international law sub-
disciplines treated in this book, and because of the necessity of understanding
the context of child labor as a social, economic and cultural issue, I have ben-
efited from the contributions and support of many individuals and organiza-
tions throughout the research and writing of this book....

There is a fundamental law of attraction in the
universe that guides people’s lives and is the
underlying power behind all things. This law was expressed
by Napoleon Hill when he said, “We become what we think
about.” This profound truth has been stated in many different
languages and cultures throughout history. In the second
century of the Common Era, the Roman emperor and Stoic
philosopher Marcus Aurelius said “Our life is what our
thoughts make it.” This idea has been developed over time
and has now become a central tenet in many spiritual traditions....

ostensibly a guide to cracking the cult of the puzzle in
Microsoft's hiring practices, Poundstone manages to sneak in a
wealth of material on the crucial issue of how to hire in
today's knowledge-based economy. How Would You Move
Mount Fuji? delivers on the promise of revealing the tricks to
Microsoft's notorious hiring challenges. But, more important,
Poundstone, an accomplished science journalist, shows how
puzzles can — and cannot — identify the potential stars of a
These cultural grids determine how reality is constructed in both
source and target texts, and the skill of the translator in manipulating
these grids will determine the success of the outcome. Lefevere
argues that these cultural grids, a notion deriving from Pierre
Bourdieu’s notion of cultural capital, highlight the creativity of the
translator, for he or she is inevitably engaged in a complex creative
This chapter presents globalization aspects of electronic commerce, describes the key issues in each area, and
then analyzes approaches that could be Used to address these issues. Globalization is the marketing and
selling of a product outside a companys home country, and the most effective way to do that on the Internet is
via localization of Web content. Localization is the process and product of customizing Web content so that it
