In spite of a cascade of criticism launched against the social sciences, they have brought a qualitative improvement in method and theory to the study of human beings and human relations. In the process of developing now commonplace foundations of social research few individuals have exercised a greater role in justifying and enriching social scientific thought and practice than Harold D. Lasswell. Originally published in 1945 as The Analysis of Political Behaviour, this extraordinary volume has been re-titled Legal Education and Public Policy. The selections acknowledge Lasswell's growing anxieties about a world of revolution, violence, and terror, and the frailties of law in addressing such matters. That he did so without recourse to vague and fatuous appeals to world law and world order is an indication of how close to empirical realities he remained. Lasswell's essays fuse the legal and moral in the conduct of public policy. This did not deter him from arguing the case for and ultimate benefits of democratic values as a ground for legal thought. Lasswell singles out the interviewing technique of the psychiatrist, what he calls -the insight interview- in many of these essays. The Freudian world opened up the possibilities of analysis to political scientists who, prior to Lasswell, viewed neuroses in the leaders they studied but without normative points to measure their own biases. Lasswell's essays serve as a landmark in accelerating rapid advance in social science research. It allowed for the evolution of political behavior that has catapulted the field to a major dimension of political science studies in leadership and mass persuasion.

Find out more about convenient immunoassays you can implement in your own research! From the Foreword, by M. S. Swaminathan, Chairman of the M. S. Swaminathan Research Foundation: “The book provides remedies to the common maladies relating to quality and safety of dietary material. Professor Narayanasamy has compiled and presented with great clarity the latest information on all aspects relating to immunology in plant health and food safety. We owe Professor Narayanasamy a deep debt of gratitude for this labor of love in the cause of improving food and feed quality and safety.” Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety suggests cost-effective, simple, and sensitive immunological techniques to assess plant health and food safety for the production of desirable foods, feeds, and timbers. This book explores the structure and biochemical constituents of healthy plants and the abiotic and biotic stresses that can cause a marked reduction in quantity and quality of agricultural produce. Researchers, faculty members, and graduate scholars in plant pathology, microbiology, biochemistry, environmental sciences, and food technology will find this text useful for producing healthy plants while maintaining a pollution-free environment. In Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety, methods to develop stress-resistant cultivars are discussed to enable you to select the most suitable strategies for maintaining production and quality without the use of chemicals. This valuable resource provides detailed instructions for employing immunoassays that are rapid, reproducible, and amenable for large-scale application in place of cumbersome and expensive methods currently in use. With this important tool, you will be able to plan and develop programs to obtain agricultural produce of high quality acceptable for human and animal consumption. With Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety, you’ll learn more about: agrosystems immunological reactions preparations of antisera immunodetection techniques plant-stress interactions genetic manipulations disease resistance and the production of disease-free plants mycotoxins chemical residues This essential guide provides you with access to a wide spectrum of information never before encompassed in a single book, saving you time and energy. Figures, photographs, and tables with appropriate data supply visual and factual support for the points discussed in the text. Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety includes a large number of citations (over 1000) for further research and development in your chosen field of study.
