According to recent market research, students are less academically engaged than ever before--a downward trend that has nothing to do with intellect, but everything to do with motivation, focus, and discipline. Visually appealing, research-based, and highly motivational, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, completely engages students with direct applications and immediate results. Thoroughly researched, the text covers the topics most important to student success and incorporates underlying themes of motivation and self-discipline throughout. Rather than talking down to students or speaking over their heads, FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, CONCISE EDITION, initiates a personal and informal conversation with readers--directly connecting with and drawing them into text discussions. Like FOCUS ON COLLEGE SUCCESS, this concise version of the text addresses the needs of today's college students. In this smaller version, chapters on information literacy, writing, speaking skills, and wellness have been removed to concentrate on the core elements of the college success class. By holding to one good example for each chapter, Staley allows for the hands-on learning at which she excels, while creating a concise, student-focused option for the classroom.

The Handbook provides a comprehensive statement and reference point for hazard and disaster research, policy making, and practice in an international and multi-disciplinary context. It offers critical reviews and appraisals of current state of the art and future development of conceptual, theoretical and practical approaches as well as empirical knowledge and available tools. Organized into five inter-related sections, this Handbook contains sixty-five contributions from leading scholars. Section one situates hazards and disasters in their broad political, cultural, economic, and environmental context. Section two contains treatments of potentially damaging natural events/phenomena organized by major earth system. Section three critically reviews progress in responding to disasters including warning, relief and recovery. Section four addresses mitigation of potential loss and prevention of disasters under two sub-headings: governance, advocacy and self-help, and communication and participation. Section five ends with a concluding chapter by the editors. The engaging international contributions reflect upon the politics and policy of how we think about and practice applied hazard research and disaster risk reduction. This Handbook provides a wealth of interdisciplinary information and will appeal to students and practitioners interested in Geography, Environment Studies and Development Studies.
