Product Description

Review

"This book offers an introduction to the broad perspective of the expanding field of ocean economics together with standard economic theory. It provides a comprehensive and clear account of marine natural resources issues such as fisheries, mining, offshore oil and gas, renewable energy and biogenetic resources. The clear explanations and basic principles that underpin the text make it readily accessible to non-economists coming from diverse programs of study." -- Domenico da Empoli, University of Rome "In this extensive review of the economics of the world's oceans, Colazingari (Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies) provides a detailed examination of the convergence of technology, politics, policy, and natural resource conservation as it relates to the marine environment... highly recommended." -- J.A. Hewlett, Choice, July 2008

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book that covers many aspects of sexuality often overlooked by researchers and academics. Often writers are afraid of writting about the diversity of sexual relationships that we can find around the world, due to fear of looking bad or being 'shuned' by their research communities.

I think the authors that participated in compiling this book were very brave and achieved a great work by providing insight into one of the most misunderstood human activities - non-monogamy.

I am proud to own and recommend this book to any academic, researcher and clinician working in the area of human aspects of behaviour, sexuality, society and so on.

I abolutely love the deconstruction of the tabu surrounding this topic, especially with the atmosphere of the possible 'illegality' of engaging into such consented seuxal activities. Especially in the USA, where many polyamourous families subsist by pretending to be monogamous families, so that their local communities do not discriminate against children of polyamorous parents who have a lot to gain in keeping in touch with the rest of human society.

I hope this topic opens up our minds, because at the end of the day we are all humans, and we need to be treated as such, independently of one's legitimous choices and desires.
