More than ever, libraries must seek taxpayer dollars to expand or even maintain their services. Even in the best financial times, persuading voters to back new taxes for libraries is difficult. It’s best to get professional help, since the grassroots approach, on a shoestring budget, is increasingly unlikely to work. Written for library directors, staff, board members and Friends who want to know how to achieve victory with a ballot measure, this guide covers the entire process—from beginning steps, organization and fundraising to knowing and challenging the opposition. Advice is offered even on what to do if the campaign fails. This book will provide familiarity with both political concepts, like bonds and swing voters, and jargon, such as ELAW (Everybody loves a winner) and WIFM (What's in it for me?) and it’s full of easy-to-follow advice and examples from actual campaigns. Learning politics and going into action can be fun—as well as beneficial to the library and the community. A list of sources provides further assistance.

The result of over forty years of passionate research, Montcalm and Wolfe is the epic story of Europe's struggle for dominance of the New World. Centuries of rivalry and greed between the great imperial powers culminated in five brutal years of war; resulted in the death of both generals, Louis de Montcalm and James Wolfe; and ultimately sowed the seeds of the American Revolution, fought a scant seventeen years later. A brilliant work of scholarship as well as a riveting read, Montcalm and Wolfe was thought by many, including the author, to be Parkman's greatest work. It is an essential part of any military history collection. The books in the Modern Library War series have been chosen by series editor Caleb Carr according to the significance of their subject matter, their contribution to the field of military history, and their literary merit.

How insights from the social sciences, including social psychology and economics, can improve the design of online communities. Online communities are among the most popular destinations on the Internet, but not all online communities are equally successful. For every flourishing Facebook, there is a moribund Friendster—not to mention the scores of smaller social networking sites that never attracted enough members to be viable. This book offers lessons from theory and empirical research in the social sciences that can help improve the design of online communities. The authors draw on the literature in psychology, economics, and other social sciences, as well as their own research, translating general findings into useful design claims. They explain, for example, how to encourage information contributions based on the theory of public goods, and how to build members' commitment based on theories of interpersonal bond formation. For each design claim, they offer supporting evidence from theory, experiments, or observational studies.
