Tibetan Lives: Three Himalayan Autobiographies

Product : Tibetan Lives: Three Himalayan Autobiographies
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In the early years of the 20th century, control over Tibet was contested by three major empires: those of China, Russia and Britain. The imperial powers and those who came in their wake - missionaries, scholars, traders and soldiers - employed local staff to assist in their dealings with the Tibetans, and these employees were in the vanguard of Tibet''s encounter with the outside world. Yet they have been largely forgotten by history and most of the knowledge and understandings that they gained have been lost.It was left to a Dutchman, Johan van Manen, and hence an outside observer of the British imperial system, to preserve the impressions of three who served on the periphery of the imperial system. The three autobiographies that make up this book, crowded with ethnographical, sociological and historico-religious data, offer a unique insight into the world of the intermediary class. In addition to being interesting and entertaining, they are an important contribution to our understanding of the history of Tibet and its opening up to cultures beyond its own.

God, Muhammad And The Unbelievers

Product : God, Muhammad And The Unbelievers
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This study of the Qur''an arises from an interest in a pressing contemporary issue, the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims (''the Ummah and the Other''). This text explores how the Qur''an comments on this relationship as it changed in the course of Muhammad''s ministry. Particular attention is paid to the portrayal in the Meccan ''punishment-narratives'' of a fascinating and complex triangular relationship between God, the powerless and persecuted believing community with Muhammad at its centre, and the unbelieving Meccans who rejected Muhammad''s preaching. The text raising questions about the possible contemporary relevance of this analysis, focusing firstly on discussions about the appropriate models for Islamic society today, and secondly on dialogue between Christians and Muslims. This book presents a detailed and illuminating analysis of many important Qur''anic themes and passages, and offers a coherent and original account of significant developments within the thought of the Qur''an as a whole.

Organisational Capital: Modelling, Measuring And Contextualising

Product : Organisational Capital: Modelling, Measuring And Contextualising
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : There is much debate as to how companies carry out their activities in the context of new information and communication technologies influencing organizations to decentralize and develop new managerial practises including outsourcing and networking. Recent theories have emphasized the importance of organization as a key component for building corporate competitive advantage and scholars have looked at this from a range of perspectives including in relation to intangible assets, human capital, work training and the process dimension. Yet the concept of organisational capital as such ¿ in spite of its indubitable relevance and attractiveness- is still to be clarified until now.In this book the subject is approached in four ways. Firstly from an analytical perspective: what is the status of organisational capital as a concept and how is the defined; secondly from a ontological perspective: what type of (implicit) orders can be designed and implemented around organisations; thirdly from the measurement perspective: what kind of frameworks and what type of metrics can be prototyped; and finally the implementation perspective: how should organizations integrate the organisational capital perspective in the definition and implementation of their strategies for resources¿ allocation. The book provides the first multifaceted and international effort from a broad perspective, aiming at clarifying the concept of organisational capital and determining its analytical and operational implications.

Reading And Mapping Hardy's Roads

Product : Reading And Mapping Hardy's Roads
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book examines Thomas Hardy''s representations of the road and the ways the archaeological and historical record of roads inform his work. Through an analysis of the uneven and often competing road signs found within three of his major novels -The Return of the Native,Tess of the D''Urbervilles, andJude the Obscure- and by mapping the road travels of his protagonists, this book argues that the road as represented by Hardy provides a palimpsest that critiques the Victorian construction of social and sexual identities. Balancing modern exigencies with mythic possibilities, Hardy''s fictive roads exist as contested spaces that channel desire for middle-class assimilation even as they provide the means both to reinforce and to resist conformity to hegemonic authority.

Speculative Grammar And Stoic Language Theory In Medieval Allegorical Narrative: From Prudentius To Alan Of Lille

Product : Speculative Grammar And Stoic Language Theory In Medieval Allegorical Narrative: From Prudentius To Alan Of Lille
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In hisPlaint of Nature (De planctu Naturae), Alan of Lille bases much of his argument against sin in general and homosexuality in particular on the claim that both amount to bad grammar. The book explores the philosophical uses of grammar that were so formative of Alan¿s thinking in major writers of the preceding generations, including Garland the Computist, St. Anselm, and Peter Abelard. Many of the linguistic theories on which these thinkers rely come from Priscian, an influential sixth-century grammarian, who relied more on the ancient tradition of Stoic linguistic theory than the Aristotelian one in elaborating his grammatical theory.Against this backdrop, the book provides a reading of Prudentius¿Psychomachiaand presents an analysis of allegory in light of Stoic linguistic theory that contrasts other modern theories of allegorical signification and readings of Prudentius. The book establishes that Stoic linguistic theory is compatible with and likely partially formative of both the allegorical medium itself and the ideas expressed within it, in particular as they appeared in the allegories of Prudentius, Boethius, and Alan.

Entrepreneurship and Economic Progress

Product : Entrepreneurship and Economic Progress
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Entrepreneurship is the engine of economic progress, but mainstream economic models of economic growth tend to leave out the entrepreneurial elements of the economy. This new book from Randall Holcombe begins by identifying areas in which evolutionary and Austrian approaches differ from the academic mainstream literature on economic growth, before moving on to distinguish growth from progress. The author then analyzes economic models of the firm based on the idea that it is entrepreneurship that drives economic progress. The book should prove to be a natural successor to recent Routledge books by Frederic Sautet and David Harper.

The Moral Rhetoric of Political Economy: Justice and Modern Economic Thought

Product : The Moral Rhetoric of Political Economy: Justice and Modern Economic Thought
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book examines the effects of the moral rhetoric of the market concept of justice on our understanding of justice. Market theory?s elevation of the role of commutative justice, or justice in exchange and property, is often taken as liberalism?s revolutionary change in priorities of justice in parting from the feudal world. This change has come at the expense of diminishing the role of distributive justice, or justice in what the community owes its members. This diminishment rules out discussion in the public sphere of any questions about our obligations to each other outside the market, relegating such questions instead to the purview of social decorum; so at the very historical moment in which equality of persons becomes the foundational condition for political liberty, the implications of that equality for how we should treat each other cease to be admissible as live political issues ? that is, discussable as justice. This shift in elevating commutative justice is traced through the moral rhetoric of praise and blame in the political economy of Adam Smith and Milton Friedman. Their theories of the market serve to implicitly position social and market decorum alongside an explicit commutative framework as the condition for a naturally self-regulating market. Their appeal to decorum is presented as a naturally occurring source of social stability. The book examines how these fundamental features of the economic argument represented by Smith and Friedman appear influentially in moral and political philosophy, among critics as well as supporters of the market system. The consistent problem is the persistent neglect of the genesis of individual identity?s constitution in community, resulting in an overvaluation of individualism and an under-acknowledgement of the significance of belonging. Resolving this problem must necessarily focus on making relational complaints about justice part of public discussion again. This book should be of interest to graduate students and researchers looking at communication or rhetoric in the history of economic thought, political thought as well as moral philosophy and ethics.

US Military Innovation since the Cold War: Creation Without Destruction

Product : US Military Innovation since the Cold War: Creation Without Destruction
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book explains how the US military reacted to the ''Revolution in Military Affairs'' (RMA), and failed to innovate its organization or doctrine to match the technological breakthroughs it brought about.Many called for the transformation of the US military in the years after the end of the Cold War, seeking the changes in organization and doctrine that would complete the RMA innovation and a commitment to counter-insurgency, peace keeping and nation building missions. This volume describes the origins, uses, and limits of the RMA technologies, examines how each of the five US armed services (categorising the Special Operations as a separate service) made their adjustments both to the technologies and the use of force, and how the role of the civilian officials and the defense industry altered in this process of change and avoidance of change.The book examines the internal politics of the services as well as civil/military relations to identify the external pressures on the services for significant change in their doctrine and weapons. Many have noted the failure of the services to innovate in what can be called the ''Second Inter-war Period'' (the years after the Cold War). This book offers explanations for this failure and arguments about the possible range and desirability of military innovation in the post-Cold war era.This book will be of great interest to students of strategic studies, US defence politics, military studies, and US politics.Harvey M.

Biology and Criminology: The Biosocial Synthesis

Product : Biology and Criminology: The Biosocial Synthesis
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Numerous criminologists have noted their dissatisfaction with the state of criminology. The need for a new paradigm for the 21st century is clear. However, many distrust biology as a factor in studies of criminal behavior, whether because of limited exposure or because the orientation of criminology in general has a propensity to see it as racist, classist, or at least illiberal. This innovative new book by noted criminologist Anthony Walsh dispels such fears, examining how information from the biological sciences strengthens criminology work and both complements and improves upon traditional theories of criminal behavior. With its reasoned case for biological science as a fundamental tool of the criminologist, Walsh''s groundbreaking work will be required reading for all students and faculty within the field of criminology.

The Politics of Melancholy from Spenser to Milton

Product : The Politics of Melancholy from Spenser to Milton
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : During the so-called Age of Melancholy, many writers invoked both traditional and new conceptualizations of the disease in order to account for various types of social turbulence, ranging from discontent and factionalism to civil war. Writing about melancholy became a way to explore both the causes and preventions of political disorder, on both specific and abstract levels. Thus, at one and the same moment, a writer could write about melancholy to discuss specific and ongoing political crises and to explore more generally the principles which generate political conflicts in the first place. In the course of developing a traditional discourse of melancholy of its own, English writers appropriated representations of the disease - often ineffectively - in order to account for the political turbulence during the civil war and Interregnum periods.

Postmodernism and its Others: The Fiction of Ishmael Reed, Kathy Acker, and Don DeLillo

Product : Postmodernism and its Others: The Fiction of Ishmael Reed, Kathy Acker, and Don DeLillo
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The book analyzes Ishmael Reed [Mumbo Jumbo], Kathy Acker [The Adult Life of Toulouse Lautrec by Henri ToulouseLautrec], and Don Delillo [White Noise], three authors whom critics cite as quintessentially postmodern. For these critics such works possess formal narrative and/or content qualities at odds with modernism. In particular, according to influential thinkers like Fredric Jameson, postmodern works possess narrative form and/or content which eschews reality, and embody a fundamental paradigm shift from the politically committed ideology of modernity and modernism to the politically relativistic ideology of postmodernity and postmodernism.The book contends that while the above authors do possess numerous so-called postmodern qualities, their critical forms and/or contents remain ethically and politically grounded. As most postmodern theory rejects such grounding, its discovery in these prototypical postmodern novels suggests problems with the postmodern category itself.

Indian Ocean Studies: Cultural, Social, and Political Perspectives

Description : The Indian Ocean is famously referred to as the cradle of globalization, as it facilitated cultural and economic exchanges between Africa, the Arab world, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and China, for 5000 years prior to European presence in the region. As this ocean''s significance has gained increasing attention from scholars in recent years, few have examined the ''human'' dimensions in Indian Ocean exchanges. Including the work of historians, geographers, anthropologists and literary analysts, each essay in this volume addresses a specific human factor, such as the fate of the creole in the Bay of Bengal, creolization as a globalized phenomenon, migrancy and diaspora, the lives of seafarers then and now, and the lives of those who inhabit the ocean''s littoral. This volume is a necessary addition to the field of Indian Ocean studies.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Despite variations of educational systems, when transitions in education occur, the pedagogical challenges that teachers and pupils undergo are quite similar across the globe. Transitions are phases in which pupils, peer groups and teachers have to renegotiate and rebuild their learning environment in the educational context. These various transitions in students'' learning paths significantly impact on schools'' everyday life. This volume explores transitions at all stages of educational progression, i.e., nursery to primary, primary to secondary, and secondary to post-school. It also examines these transitions across a variety of countries and types of schools. Educational Transitions provides up-to-date literature, research and theoretical constructs that help readers understand the issues, social-emotional-psychological dimensions, and evidence-based possible interventions to support an individual through these educational transitions. It also allows scholars, teachers, and students to critically analyse how lessons learned from one country can be adapted for other countries'' educational systems.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book offers a full history of a homeless movement in Tokyo that lasted nearly a decade. It shows how homeless people and their external supporters in the city combined their scarce resources to generate and sustain the movement. The study advocates a more nuanced analysis of movement gains to appreciate how poor people can benefit by acting collectively. It also draws attention to potential difficulties faced by lower-stratum movements aided by external allies. In particular, the study highlights how actions of the state can undermine the relations between aggrieved allies in such a way as to limit gains. The book is the first in English to detail homeless mobilization in Japan. It also addresses the origins of increased homelessness and development of homelessness policy in the country. Besides homelessness, it covers a number of current social issues, including economic globalization, social exclusion, and politics over space.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book investigates, from a sociocultural, linguistic, and pedagogical perspective, the conceptual and pragmatic frameworks that characterize secondary language learning in a Northeast Asian context. Hadzantonis contextualizes these salient domains through an engagement with social and cultural themes such as the familial, political, as well as cultural commodities and socioeducational structures. In this way, the text employs tools such as transnational theory and performativity and develops a model that contributes to the resolution of one of the greatest economic issues of the time, that of ineffective secondary language learning.

The Place Of Lewis Carroll In Children's Literature

Product : The Place Of Lewis Carroll In Children's Literature
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In this volume, Jan Susina examines the importance of Lewis Carroll and his popular Alice books to the field of children¿s literature. From a study of Carroll¿s juvenilia to contemporary multimedia adaptations of Wonderland, Susina shows how the Alice books fit into the tradition of literary fairy tales and continue to influence children¿s writers. In addition to examining Carroll¿s books for children, these essays also explore his photographs of children, his letters to children, his ill-fated attempt to write for a dual audience of children and adults, and his lasting contributions to publishing. The book addresses the important, but overlooked facet of Carroll¿s career as an astute entrepreneur who carefully developed an extensive Alice industry of books and non-book items based on the success of Wonderland, while rigorously defending his reputation as the originator of his distinctive style of children¿s stories.

Complementary And Alternative Medicine For Nurses And Allied Health Professionals: A Guide To The Evidence And Clinical Applicatio

Product : Complementary And Alternative Medicine For Nurses And Allied Health Professionals: A Guide To The Evidence And Clinical Applicatio
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has become increasingly popular over the last twenty years for both health promotion and the symptomatic management of many chronic medical conditions. However, while many people already use CAM interventions alongside conventional medicine, more and more health professionals are beginning to incorporate them into their clinical practice.This introductory text provides an overview of the most commonly used CAM modalities - including mind/body approaches, body based treatments and herbal/dietary therapies - and is designed to ensure that nurses and allied health professionals are familiar with the up-to-date evidence base and best potential use of CAM interventions in clinical practice. Often hampered by a lack of good quality research or compelling evidence, it identifies where there is good emerging evidence to support therapies. The book also explores important questions in relation to how you can safely, professionally and ethically integrate CAM into your practice, before looking at common uses of CAM in relation to cancer, chronic illness and vulnerable groups such as children, older people and those with mental health difficulties.Presenting the best available clinical evidence to ensure the most effective and safe use of CAM interventions for our patients, this is an invaluable reference work for nursing and allied health students and professionals with an interest in the area.

Barack Obama And The Myth Of A Post-racial America

Product : Barack Obama And The Myth Of A Post-racial America
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The 2008 presidential election was celebrated around the world as a seminal moment in U.S. political and racial history. White liberals and other progressives framed the election through the prism of change, while previously acknowledged demographic changes were hastily heralded as the dawn of a post-racial America. However, by 2011, much of the post-election idealism had dissipated in the wake of an on-going economic and financial crisis, escalating wars in Afghanistan and Libya, and the rise of the right-wing Tea Party movement. By placing Obama in the historical context of U.S. race relations, this volume interrogates the idealized and progressive view of American society advanced by much of the mainstream literature on Obama. Barack Obama and the Myth of a Post-Racial America takes a careful look at the historical, cultural and political dimensions of race in the United States, using an interdisciplinary analysis that incorporates approaches from history, political science, and sociology. Each chapter addresses controversial issues such as whether Obama can be considered an African-American president, whether his presidency actually delivered the kind of deep-rooted changes that were initially prophesised, and whether Obama has abandoned his core African-American constituency in favour of projecting a race-neutral approach designed to maintain centrist support. Through cutting edge, critically informed, and cross-disciplinary analyses, this collection directly addresses the dimensions of race in American society through the lens of Obama?s election and presidency.

Carbon Governance, Climate Change And Business Transformation

Product : Carbon Governance, Climate Change And Business Transformation
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Transformation to a low carbon economy is a central tenet to any discussion on the solutions to the complex challenges of climate change and energy security. Despite advances in policy, carbon management and continuing development of clean technology, fundamental businesstransformationhas not occurred because of multiple political, economic, social and organisational issues.Carbon Governance, Climate Change and Business Transformationis based on leading academic and industry input, and three international workshops focused on low carbon transformation in leading climate policy jurisdictions (Canada, USA and the UK) under the international Carbon Governance Project (CGP) banner. The book pulls insights from this innovative collaborative network to identify the policy combinations needed to create transformative change. It explores fundamental questions about how governments and the private sector conceptualize the problem of climate change, the conditions under which business transformation can genuinely take place and key policy and business innovations needed.Broadly, the book is based on emerging theories of multi-levelled, multi-actor carbon governance, and applies these ideas to the real world implications for tackling climate change through business transformation. Conceptually and empirically, this book stimulates both academic discussion and practical business models for low carbon transformation.

Challenging Professional Learning

Product : Challenging Professional Learning
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Teachers and trainers are dual-professionals ¿ they are required to have up-to-date industry skills and also skills in teaching and learning. The issue of professional identity, and the promotion of maintaining and building pedagogic expertise in relation to their vocational work, is therefore an extremely important one. This book argues that quality teaching and learning is very much dependent upon teachers and trainers undergoing continuing professional development (CPD), engaging actively in professional learning activities, generating professional learning communities and building their level of professionalism to meet increasing teaching standards. Unfortunately, CPD is battling a context of intensification of work, pressure of time and economic restrictions. The completion of CPD under such conditions can often become tokenistic and hitherto there has been very little research or evidence base for determining what approaches to CPD are most effective and efficient.Challenging Professional Learningdraws on a wealth of recent research and evidence on what ingredients are necessary for effective and efficient (crucial at a time of such fiscal constraints) professional learning. It also explores the wider implications of these findings and the concept of learning as a collective activity. It argues that real professionalism cannot be achieved in isolation but instead takes place in a context that has political, social and cultural influences.The book brings together research from the Institute for Learning and practice around professional learning to link both individual and collective professional learning to organisational learning, leadership and the management of change whilst offering practical suggestions for improving these practices. It will be of great interest to teacher educators and their students at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, as well as anyone who works in higher education and with professional development.

Resilient Teachers, Resilient Schools: Building And Sustaining Quality In Testing Times

Product : Resilient Teachers, Resilient Schools: Building And Sustaining Quality In Testing Times
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book unpicks the complex, dynamic blend of individuals¿ psychological and professional assets, workplace conditions and leadership support which enable teachers who stay in teaching to continue to make a difference in their careers, regardless of shifts in policy, workplace, professional and personal circumstances.Whilst much has been written over the years about teacher stress and burnout, there is very little research which reports on the conditions which are essential for teachers to sustain their commitment and effectiveness over their professional lives, in contexts of challenge and change. Drawing upon a range of educational, psychological, socio-cultural and neuro-scientific research, together with vivid accounts from teachers in a variety of primary and secondary schools internationally, and from their own research on teachers¿ work and identities, the authors discuss the dynamic nature, forms and practices of teacher resilience. They argue that resilience in teachers is not only their ability to bounce back in extremely adverse circumstances but that it is the capacity of teachers for everyday resilience which enables them to sustain their commitment and effectiveness in responding positively to the unavoidable uncertainties inherent of their professional lives.The authors conclude that resilience in teachers can be nurtured by the intellectual, social and organisational environments in which teachers work and live, rather than being simply a personal attribute or trait, determined by nature.Resilient Teachers, Resilient Schoolswill be of key interest to policy makers, head teachers, teachers and training and development organisations who wish to improve quality and standards in schools.

Using Statistics In Small-scale Language Education Research: Focus On Non-parametric Data

Product : Using Statistics In Small-scale Language Education Research: Focus On Non-parametric Data
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Assuming no familiarity with statistical methods, this text for language education research methods and statistics courses provides detailed guidance and instruction on principles of designing, conducting, interpreting, reading, and evaluating statistical research done in classroom settings or with a small number of participants. While three different types of statistics are addressed (descriptive, parametric, non-parametric) the emphasis is on non-parametric statistics because they are appropriate when the number of participants is small and the conditions for use of parametric statistics are not satisfied. The emphasis on non-parametric statistics is unique and complements the growing interest among second and foreign language educators in doing statistical research in classrooms. Designed to help students and other language education researchers to identify and use analyses that are appropriate for their studies, taking into account the number of participants and the shape of the data distribution, the text includes sample studies to illustrate the important points in each chapter and exercises to promote understanding of the concepts and the development of practical research skills. Mathematical operations are explained in detail, and step-by-step illustrations in the use of R (a very powerful, online, freeware program) to perform all calculations are provided. A Companion Website extends and enhances the text with PowerPoint presentations illustrating how to carry out calculations and use R; practice exercises with answer keys; data sets in Excel MS-DOS format; and quiz, midterm, and final problems with answer keys.

Wish-fulfilment In Philosophy And Psychoanalysis: The Tyranny Of Desire

Product : Wish-fulfilment In Philosophy And Psychoanalysis: The Tyranny Of Desire
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Wish-fulfilment as a singular means of satisfying ineluctable desire is a pivotal concept in classical psychoanalysis. Freud argued that it was the thread that united dreams, daydreams, phantasy, omnipotent thinking, neurotic and some psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions, art, myth, and religious illusions. The concept''s theoretical exploration has been largely neglected within psychoanalysis since, but contemporary philosophers have recognised it as providing an explanatory model for much of the kind of irrational behaviour so problematic for psychiatry, social psychology and the philosophy of mind. ? Although critically neglected in contemporary psychological and psychoanalytic thought, the concept remains clinically fundamental, under different labels: it encompasses the processes of omnipotent phantasy, symbolic or substitutive satisfaction, actualisation in transference and acting out, symptom formation and defenses such as projective identification. Wish-fulfilment can be shown to be a specifically psychoanalytic compartment of a common-sense psychological theory of action that illuminates not just clinical material but also the paradoxes of irrationality ? such as weakness of will and self-deception ? that preoccupy philosophers. ? The first half of this book develops a comprehensive and novel theory of wish-fulfilment, explores its radical implications for the structure of mind, and locates it against the backdrop of both contemporary psychoanalytic and philosophical thought. In the second half, the book applies the theory to illuminate important features of self-deception and delusion, religion, insanity defences, creative writing and the exclusion of mind and intention in the biological drift of modern psychiatry. ? The book will be essential to philosophers of mind, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social theorists, and students in these disciplines; as well as readers interested in understanding how the mind works in mental illness, self-deception, religion, and creative writing.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Examining the water, development and security linkages in Central Asia can feel a bit like solving a Rubik?s cube. The Rubik?s cube starts to usually find structure and the different pieces find their places when its solver adopts a systematic approach. Still, solving the whole cube takes time and perseverance. This is also the case with water and security in Central Asia as demonstrated by the chapters in this book. In the case of water and security in Central Asia, there are many faces, including not only the Central Asian states but also the neighbouring countries and other players of global geopolitics; stickers such as policies, practices, causes, and impacts; and colours such as the different stakeholders, ranging from the micro and meso levels to the macro level. Understanding all these, or getting clarity on the nexus, can seem extremely challenging. Even though none of the chapters alone answers the question of what constitutes water and security in Central Asia, each of them gives thoughtful ideas and information on the complexity of the issue. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of Water Resources Development.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Clinical psychology is a quickly growing profession, yet it is a challenging one: the preparation is arduous, the training is highly selective, and the results ¿ an established and financially successful practice ¿ are not easy to achieve. This book explains how to prepare for and surmount all of the hurdles presented to those who hope to eventually develop a lucrative and rewarding practice in clinical psychology. It is the first of its kind to focus primarily on financial success, though it does also look at the personal stresses and rewards of the profession. The author provides tips from his own experience and from other financially successful private practice psychologists and offers business techniques and pointers that are not explained in training programs. Undergraduate students contemplating a career in psychology will find advice on preparing for the GRE, applying to graduate schools, and getting involved in research and clinical work. For graduate students, an overview of a graduate clinical psychology program, preparing and completing a dissertation, and gaining experience in psychological testing are provided. Chapters then focus on how to build and manage a private practice, the best ways to manage personal and business finances, and how to practice good self-care. Additionally, the book includes a chapter by an expert on student-loan repayment that examines how to best work through the process of paying back student loans while building a practice.

Personal Consultancy: A Model For Integrating Counselling And Coaching

Product : Personal Consultancy: A Model For Integrating Counselling And Coaching
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Making the case for an integrated approach to the practices of counselling, psychotherapy and coaching, Personal Consultancy provides a coherent and systematic framework for working with clients. Nash Popovic and Debra Jinks use their experience in the area of integrative practice to demonstrate how this wider approach can be a more comprehensive way of helping clients than coaching or counselling on its own. The authors explain how a range of techniques and approaches from various one-to-one practices can be brought together under the framework of Personal Consultancy, creating a method that is systematic, ethical and professional but not limited by any particular theoretical bias or preconceptions. With chapters by guest authors who discuss their perspectives on the approach and its application across various contexts, Personal Consultancy demonstrates that it is possible to combine the reparative work normally associated with counselling with the more proactive, goal-oriented approach of coaching. The result is a method that allows clients to have their counselling and their coaching needs met within one relationship and which allows the practitioner more flexibility and freedom than when using a single approach. Personal Consultancy will be essential reading for practicing coaches and counsellors, especially those already integrating the two approaches or those looking to do so, as well as students and those in training.

Discourses Of Imperialism In The Pacific: The Anglo-american Encounter

Product : Discourses Of Imperialism In The Pacific: The Anglo-american Encounter
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This interdisciplinary collection explores the confluence of American and British (neo)imperalism in the Pacific, as represented in various forms of Pacific discourse including literature, ethnography, film, painting, autobiography, journalism, and environmental discourse. It investigates the alliances and rivalries between these two colonial powers during the crucial transition period of the early-to-mid twentieth century, also exploring indigenous Pacific responses to Anglo-American imperialism during and beyond the decolonization period of the late twentieth century. While the relationship between Britain and the US has been analyzed through prominent forms of economic and cultural exchange between Europe, Africa, and the Americas, there is to date no sustained study of the relationship between British and US colonial expansion into the Pacific, which became central to ideas of developing ¿European¿ modernity in the late eighteenth century and has played a pivotal in the history of Anglo-American colonialism, from the establishment of plantation economies and settler colonies in the nineteenth century to various forms of military imperialism during and beyond the twentieth century. The wide range of discursive and expressive modes explored in this collection makes for a rich and multifaceted analysis of representations of, and responses to, Anglo-American imperialism, and is in keeping with the current interdisciplinary turn in postcolonial studies.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach creates a fresh approach to learning land law through the use of real-life scenarios which bring what is often perceived to be a dry and difficult subject to life. This helps both to engage the student and make the subject more accessible as well as placing land law in it''s real world context. With Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach, context is placed at the heart of learning and guides students through application rather than via an abstract set of rules and can therefore gain a deeper understanding of how land law works, not just what it is. This new textbook creates a fresh approach to learning land law through the use of scenarios found in real-life which bring what is often perceived to be a dry and difficult subject to life. This helps both to engage the student and make the subject more accessible as well as demonstrating to students how land law actually operates in the real world. Land Law is often seen as an esoteric subject with lots of technicalities and complex vocabulary and students often forget the context in which it operates. With Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach, context is placed at the heart of learning. Students are learning through application rather than via an abstract set of rules and can therefore gain a deeper understanding of how land law works, not just what it is. Unlike other textbooks, Land Law: A Problem-Based Approach integrates a thorough exposition of the law with practice, facilitating a more active learning approach and helping students to engage directly with the key cases and statutes to develop key skills of analysis, problem-solving and application. Written in a clear and concise style but without sacrificing detail or analysis, the book guides the reader towards a deeper understanding of the land law curriculum. Key features include:? An introductory chapter outlining the problem-based learning approach and how to use the book.? Content overviews at the start of each chapter which provide a useful outline of the chapter?s content and the key principles? PBL scenarios at the start of each chapter which provide the real-life context to each topic and help to familiarise readers with the legal language and style they will encounter. Together with the relevant supporting documents, these scenarios are referenced and integrated throughout the chapter? ?let?s put this into context? boxes which require students to apply the law that they have learnt back to the problem scenario and offer opportunites to reflect and consolidate on the content covered ? Essential Cases and Esential Statutes boxes reinforce the essential role of cases and legislation in the development and application of land law and help students identify key cases and legislation for revision purposes? Understanding Terminology boxes and an online glossary help students to get to grips with the technical terms and vocabulary unique to land law? Tables and diagrams explain difficult concepts and rules, ideal for visual learners? Tips and notes highlight key issues and make links between different aspects of the law without interrupting the flow of the text.? Specimen exam-style questions are ideal for revision and help to provide opportunities to apply learning and practice exam technique

Contested Objects: Material Memories Of The Great War

Product : Contested Objects: Material Memories Of The Great War
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Contested Objects breaks new ground in the interdisciplinary study of material culture. Its focus is on the rich and varied legacy of objects from the First World War as the global conflict that defined the twentieth century. From the iconic German steel helmet to practice trenches on Salisbury Plain, and from the ?Dazzle Ship? phenomenon through medal-wearing, diary-writing, trophy collecting, the market in war souvenirs and the evocative reworking of European objects by African soldiers, this book presents a dazzling array of hitherto unseen worlds of the Great War. The innovative and multidisciplinary approach adopted here follows the lead established by Nicholas J. Saunders? Matters of Conflict (Routledge 2004), and extends its geographical coverage to embrace a truly international perspective. Australia, Africa, Italy, Germany, France, Belgium and Britain are all represented by a cross-disciplinary group of scholars working in archaeology, anthropology, cultural history, art history, museology, and cultural heritage. The result is a volume that resonates with richly documented and theoretically informed case studies that illustrate how the experiences of war can be embodied in and represented by an endless variety of artefacts, whose ?social lives? have endured for almost a century and that continue to shape our perceptions of an increasingly dangerous world.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Wired Citizenshipexamines the evolving patterns of youth learning and activism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). In today¿s digital age, in which formal schooling often competes with the peer-driven outlets provided by social media, youth all over the globe have forged new models of civic engagement, rewriting the script of what it means to live in a democratic society. As a result, state-society relationships have shifted¿never more clearly than in the MENA region, where recent uprisings were spurred by the mobilization of tech-savvy and politicized youth.Combining original research with a thorough exploration of theories of democracy, communications, and critical pedagogy, this edited collection describes how youth are performing citizenship, innovating systems of learning, and re-imagining the practices of activism in the information age. Recent case studies illustrate the context-specific effects of these revolutionary new forms of learning and social engagement in the MENA region.

Model Estate (routledge Revivals): Planned Housing At Quarry Hill Leeds

Product : Model Estate (routledge Revivals): Planned Housing At Quarry Hill Leeds
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Quarry Hill Flats, once both the pride and shame of its city of Leeds, was an iconic Modernist symbol of the 1930s. It marked the first use of a prefabricated building system for a large-scale council estate, replacing a notorious slum. But it lasted barely a generation ? its complete demolition was announced as Alison Ravetz was finishing this study. First published in 1974, this book is unique in its use of all estate records from conception to destruction, as well as in its comprehensive approach, including aspects usually missing in council housing studies ? notably the intimate experience of residents, and a fraught, long-drawn-out building period. Ravetz argues that the Flats? ?failure? was due not to social breakdown, as repeatedly alleged, but rather to a rigidity of design and management unable to accommodate gradual, incremental change. This has continuing implications for the operation of bureaucratically designed and controlled ?social housing? today.

Spelling For Life: Uncovering The Simplicity And Science Of Spelling

Product : Spelling For Life: Uncovering The Simplicity And Science Of Spelling
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : A recent survey of 200 teachers asking the question ?spelling is??? resulted in the following adjectives: ?difficult?, ?complex?, ?confusing?, ?random?, ?confounding?. Spelling for Life offers lucid, accessible tools which help to reveal that, when explicitly and systematically taught, spelling is scientific, law-abiding and even elegant. It explains that spelling is the manipulation of symbols according to agreed-upon patterns that produce predictable results. Spelling errors also fall into sets of predictable patterns. Success in spelling is not a product of intelligence. Many people struggle to spell due to coping strategies developed in place of explicit instruction. What gives spelling its ?complex? veneer is the fact that different ways of thinking are required at different levels from word to word. Some words can be spelt as they sound, others have to be visually memorised and some rely on knowledge of core rules about word-structure. A lot of words require more than one strand of knowledge. This book makes clear which strand needs to be applied in different situations. Often pupils who can read and express themselves competently nevertheless find spelling difficult. False assumptions about spelling, such as believing the English language is complex and/or irregular, damage confidence and lead to reluctance to even attempt to spell correctly. Spelling For Life enables teachers and pupils to: learn what the common spelling coping strategies are gain insights into undoing poor spelling habits work together to notice patterns not only in regular spelling, but also in words which on the surface seem to break the spelling rules practise successful spelling strategies, progressing from simple to complex words rapidly and with confidence. Using a synthesis of theory, research and teaching experience, the fascinating nature of English spelling is systematically teased out. The examples and exercises offer an encouraging, accessible way to implement the programme of study and strive to reveal the beauty of spelling. Aided by example lessons, progressive assessments, unique tools and extensive practice lists, this highly acclaimed overview of spelling succeeds in developing critical thinking and confidence when reading and spelling. It can be used in conjunction with any established phonics programme.

The Economic Crisis And Governance In The European Union: A Critical Assessment

Product : The Economic Crisis And Governance In The European Union: A Critical Assessment
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book explores the way in which the financial crisis that began in the US spread to the economy of the European Union. It takes a critical look at the measures adopted by EU institutions in response to that crisis, seeking to explain the rationale behind them, their context, their development and why different exit strategies were not adopted. In doing this, the book makes comparisons with the measures adopted by institutions in the US and the UK.As the crisis has shown that the financial supervision frameworks prevailing in 2007 were not fully able to deal with the largest financial crisis in history, this volume also reviews the proposals that have been designed to reform the supervisory architecture in financial services in the EU.The book concludes that the EU member states under most pressure from financial markets do suffer from intrinsic problems, but that the economic effects of the crisis have been exacerbated by shortcomings in economic governance within the EU.This work will be highly relevant to policy makers and scholars looking at EU integration, finance and market regulation.

Description : Managing Transitionsexamines the history and roles of China''s minor parties and groups (MPG''s) in the Chinese Communist Party''s (CCP) united front between the 1930''s and 1990''s using Antonio Gramsci''s principles for the winning and maintaining of hegemony. Gramsci advocated a war of position, the building of political alliances to isolate existing state powers and win consent for revolutionary rule and transform society. Economic reform is now creating new socio-economic groups and the CCP is adjusting the united front and the MPGs to co-opt their representatives and deliberately forestall the evolution of an autonomous civil society and middle class which could challenge CCP rule. This has resulted in a new and expanding role for the united front, the MPGs and organisations representing the new interest groups.

Product : The Price Of Freedom: A History Of East Central Europe From The Middle Ages To The Present
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The Price of Freedomsurveys and explains the fascinating and intricate history of East Central Europe - the present day countries of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Taking a thematic approach, the author explores such issues and controversies as the tension between the industrial developed West and the agrarian East Central Europe, the rise of modern nationalism, democracy and authoritarianism and Communism.While the countries of East Central Europe have differed dramatically from one another, the author asserts that they have been bound by a certain community of fate. These comparisons are traced through the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This exploration reveals that it is no accident that the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland were the first among the former Soviet bloc nations to be admitted to NATO, and are likely to become the first members of the expanded European Union. Thus an understanding of their experiences, contributions and their place within the European community of nations vastly enriches our knowledge of Europe''s past and present.The second edition of this distinguished book brings the history of the region up to date. It discusses the events of the post-communist decade of the 1990s and the problems resulting from the transition to democracy and market economy.

Description : This inexpensive paperback provides a brief, simple overview of statistics to help readers gain a better understanding of how statistics work and how to interpret them correctly.

Asian American Athletes In Sport And Society

Product : Asian American Athletes In Sport And Society
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : For more than a century, sporting spectacles, media coverage, and popular audiences have staged athletics in black and white. Commercial, media, and academic accounts have routinely erased, excluded, ignored, and otherwise made absent the Asian American presence in sport. This book seeks to redress this pattern of neglect, presenting a comprehensive perspective on the history and significance of Asian American athletes, coaches, and teams in North America. The contributors interrogate the sociocultural contexts in which Asian Americans lived and played, detailing the articulations of power and possibility, difference and identity, representation and remembrance that have shaped the means and meanings of Asian Americans playing sport in North America. This volume will be of interest to students and scholars of the Asian American experience, ethnic relations, and the history of sport.

Divine Intervention: Metaphysical and Epistemological Puzzles

Product : Divine Intervention: Metaphysical and Epistemological Puzzles
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This study is a new look at the question of how God can act upon the world, and whether the world can affect God, examining contemporary work on the metaphysics of causation and laws of nature, and current work in the theory of knowledge and mysticism. It has been traditional to address such questions by appealing to God¿s omnipotence and omniscience, but this book claims that this is useless unless it can be shown how these two powers work. Instead of treating the familiar problems associated with omnipotence and omniscience, this book asks directly whether, and how, causal interactions between God and His world could occur: both between God and the physical world (miracles) and between God and other minds (mystical experience), as well as between the world and God (divine perception). Fales examines current thinking (which is diverse) about the very nature of causation, laws of nature, and agency.

Nancy Cartwright?s Philosophy Of Science

Product : Nancy Cartwright?s Philosophy Of Science
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Nancy Cartwright is one of the most distinguished and influential contemporary philosophers of science. Despite the profound impact of her work, there is neither a systematic exposition of Cartwright?s philosophy of science nor a collection of articles that contains in-depth discussions of the major themes of her philosophy. This book is devoted to a critical assessment of Cartwright?s philosophy of science and contains contributions from Cartwright''s champions and critics. Broken into three parts, the book begins by addressing Cartwright''s views on the practice of model building in science and the question of how models represent the world before moving on to a detailed discussion of methodologically and metaphysically challenging problems. Finally, the book addresses Cartwright''s original attempts to clarify profound questions concerning the metaphysics of science. With contributions from leading scholars, such as Ronald N. Giere and Paul Teller, this unique volume will be extremely useful to philosophers of science the world over.

Individuals, Groups, and Business Ethics

Product : Individuals, Groups, and Business Ethics
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Business Reference>Business Ethics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Corporate social responsibility has become a heavily discussed topic in business ethics. Identifying some generally accepted moral principles as a basis for discussion,Individuals, Groups, and Business Ethicsexamines ethical dimensions of our relationships with families, friends and workmates, the extent to which we have obligations as members of teams and communities, and how far ethics may ground our commitments to organisations and countries. It offers an innovative analysis that differentiates amongst our genuine ethical obligations to individuals, counterfeit obligations to identity groups, and complex role-based obligations in organised groups. It suggests that often individuals need intuitive moral judgment developed by experience, reflection and dialogue to identify the individual obligations that emerge for them in complex group situations. These situations include some where people have to discern what their organisations¿ corporate social responsibilities imply for them as individuals, and other situations where individuals have to deal with conflicts amongst their obligations or with efforts by other people to exploit them. This book gives an integrated, analytical account of how our obligations are grounded, provides a major theoretical case study of such ethical processes in action, and then considers some extended implications.

Inclusive Masculinity: The Changing Nature of Masculinities

Product : Inclusive Masculinity: The Changing Nature of Masculinities
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Drawing on qualitative studies of teamsport athletes and fraternity members, this book describes the rapidly changing world of masculinities among men in both the United States and Great Britain. As cultural homophobia decreases, university-aged men are influenced to construct a softer version of masculinity ? one that is not predicated in homophobia. Inclusive Masculinity shows that today''s youth express decreased sexism, racism and masculine bullying. As Eric Anderson demonstrates, men who value inclusive masculinities are also shown to be more likely to bond in emotional relationships with other men and to embrace a variety of behaviors once coded as feminine, including certain same-sex sexual behaviors. Now available in paperback, this groundbreaking analysis of masculinity and young men will be of interest to students and faculty members within Sociology, Gender Studies, and Sport Studies.

The Design Of Future Educational Interfaces: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Product : The Design Of Future Educational Interfaces: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The Design of Future Educational Interfaces provides a new multidisciplinary synthesis of educational interface research. It explains how computer interfaces can be redesigned to better support our ability to produce ideas, think, and solve problems successfully in national priority areas such as science and mathematics. Based on first-hand research experience, the author offers a candid analysis of emerging technologies and their impact, highlighting communication interfaces that stimulate thought. The research results will surprise readers and challenge their assumptions about existing technology and its ability to support our performance. In spite of a rapid explosion of interest in educational technologies, there remains a poor understanding of what constitutes an effective educational interface for student cognition and learning. This book provides valuable insights into why recent large-scale evaluations of existing educational technologies have frequently not shown demonstrable improvements in student performance. The research presented here is grounded in cognitive science and experimental psychology, linguistic science and communications, cross-cultural cognition and language, computer science and human interface design, and the learning sciences and educational technology.

Human Resource Management And The Institutional Perspective: A Comparative Study of the Relationship between the Context and the F

Product : Human Resource Management And The Institutional Perspective: A Comparative Study of the Relationship between the Context and the F
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : One of the most influential debates across business and management studies has centered on the relative impact of institutions on the fortunes of firms and nations. However, analyses have primarily focused on institutional effects on societal features, rather than actual firm practices. This volume brings together recent trends in comparative institutional analysis with a rich body of data on firm-level human resource management practice, consolidating and extending more than a decade of research on the topic. Human Resource Management and the Institutional Perspective explores the overlapping and distinct elements in work and employment relations both within and across country lines. The authors focus on intra-firm relations, internal diversity within varieties of capitalism, and the uneven and experimental nature of systemic change, all the while employing an impressive level of theoretical rigor and empirical evidence. In a single volume, this text unites soundly based, theoretically strong and empirically new chapters that bring advances in institutional theory to bear on the subject of international and comparative human resource management. This book is a valuable resource for students and scholars interested in contemporary developments in institutional theory, the relationship between regulation and practice, and innovation and continuity in human resource management.

Contemporary Feminist Pragmatism

Product : Contemporary Feminist Pragmatism
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The notion of feminist pragmatism or pragmatist feminism has been around since Charlene Haddock Seigfried introduced it two decades ago. However, the bulk of the work in this field has been directed toward recovering the feminist strain of classical American philosophy, largely through renewed interest in the work of Jane Addams. This exploration of the origins of feminism and pragmatism has been fruitful in building a foundation for theoretical considerations.The editors of this volume believe the next logical step is the contemporary application to both theory and experience. Contemporary Feminist Pragmatism is the first book to address the modern significance of the nexus of feminism and pragmatism. The issues explored here include the relationship between community and identity, particularly around the impact of gender and race; reframing political practice regarding feminist pragmatist commitments including education, sustainability movements, and local efforts like community gardens; and the association between ethics and inquiry including explorations of Buddhism, hospitality, and animal-human relationships.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Fiction
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In this unique collection, Yale literary critic Shoshana Felman and psychoanalyst Dori Laub examine the nature and function of memory and the act of witnessing, both in their general relation to the acts of writing and reading, and in their particular relation to the Holocaust. Moving from the literary to the visual, from the artistic to the autobiographical, and from the psychoanalytic to the historical, the book defines for the first time the trauma of the Holocaust as a radical crisis of witnessing the unprecedented historical occurrence of...an event eliminating its own witness. Through the alternation of a literary and clinical perspective, the authors focus on the henceforth modified relation between knowledge and event, literature and evidence, speech and survival, witnessing and ethics.
