Succeeding as an international student in the United States and Canada by Charles Lipson( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each year, 700,000 students from around the world come to the United States and Canada to study. For many, the experience is as challenging as it is exciting. Far from home, they must adapt to a new culture, new university system, and in many cases, a new language. The process can be overwhelming, but as Charles Lipson's "Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada" assures us, it doesn't have to be. "Succeeding" is designed to help students navigate the myriad issues they will encounter--from picking a program to landing a campus job. Based on Lipson's work with international students as well as extensive interviews with faculty and advisers, "Succeeding" includes practical suggestions for learning English, participating in class, and meeting with instructors. In addition it explains the rules of academic honesty as they are understood in U.S. and Canadian universities. Life beyond the classroom is also covered, with handy sections on living on or off campus, obtaining a driver's license, setting up a bank account, and more. The comprehensive glossary addresses both academic terms and phrases heard while shopping or visiting a doctor. There is even a chapter on the academic calendar and holidays in the United States and Canada. Coming to a new country to study should be an exciting venture, not a baffling ordeal. Now, with this trustworthy resource, international students have all the practical information they need to succeed, in and out of the classroom. This book is divided into three parts: (1) Moving Here; (2) Succeeding at Your University; and (3) Living in the United States and Canada. Appended are: (1) a Glossary of Words and Phrases for International Students; and (2) Abbreviations, Acronyms, Nicknames, Holidays, Floor Numbering, and Clothing Sizes. An index is included.

Standing guard : protecting foreign capital in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by Charles Lipson( Book )

Reliable partners : how democracies have made a separate peace by Charles Lipson( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democracies often go to war but almost never against each other. Indeed, "the democratic peace" has become a catchphrase among scholars and even U.S. Presidents. But why do democracies avoid fighting each other? Reliable Partners offers the first systematic and definitive explanation. Examining decades of research and speculation on the subject and testing this against the history of relations between democracies over the last two centuries, Charles Lipson concludes that constitutional democracies have a "contracting advantage"--a unique ability to settle conflicts with each other by durable agreements. In so doing he forcefully counters realist claims that a regime's character is irrelevant to war and peace. Lipson argues that because democracies are confident their bargains will stick, they can negotiate effective settlements with each other rather than incur the great costs of war. Why are democracies more reliable partners? Because their politics are uniquely open to outside scrutiny and facilitate long-term commitments. They cannot easily bluff, deceive, or launch surprise attacks. While this transparency weakens their bargaining position, it also makes their promises more credible--and more durable, for democracies are generally stable. Their leaders are constrained by constitutional rules, independent officials, and the political costs of abandoning public commitments. All this allows for solid bargains between democracies. When democracies contemplate breaking their agreements, their open debate gives partners advance notice and a chance to protect themselves. Hence agreements among democracies are less risky than those with nondemocratic states. Setting rigorous analysis in friendly, vigorous prose, Reliable Partners resolves longstanding questions about the democratic peace and highlights important new findings about democracies in world politics, from rivalries to alliances. Above all, it shows conclusively that democracies are uniquely adapted to seal enduring bargains with each other and thus avoid the blight of war

Doing honest work in college : how to prepare citations, avoid plagiarism, and achieve real academic success by Charles Lipson( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As college deans and faculty are well aware, cheating and plagiarism have become an epidemic. Some students deliberately download papers, while others break rules they simply don't understand. Unfortunately, there have been no reliable guides to aid students, faculty, and teaching assistants in navigating these challenging issues. Now, there's help. [In this book, the author provides] advice on all aspects of college studies, from papers and exams to study groups and labs. In the first part of the book, [he] outlines three core principles of academic honesty and explores how these principles inform all aspects of college work. He discusses plagiarism in detail, outlining an ingenious note-taking system and offering guidelines for quoting and paraphrasing. Careful attention is paid to online research, including the perils of "dragging and dropping" text without proper citation. These chapters include numerous tips ... on how to work honestly and study effectively. The second part of the book gives a full account of citation styles in the humanities, social sciences, and physical and biological sciences, as well as in pre-professional studies. Filled with examples, these chapters show students exactly how to cite books, journals, edited volumes, Web sites, online publications, and much more - in every citation style imaginable.-http://www.uchicago.edu
