Crowdsourced Health: How What You Do On The Internet Will Improve Medicine

Product : Crowdsourced Health: How What You Do On The Internet Will Improve Medicine
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Most of us have gone online to search for information about health. What are the symptoms of a migraine? How effective is this drug? Where can I find more resources for cancer patients? Could I have an STD? Am I fat? A Pew survey reports more than 80 percent of American Internet users have logged on to ask questions like these. But what if the digital traces left by our searches could show doctors and medical researchers something new and interesting? What if the data generated by our searches could reveal information about health that would be difficult to gather in other ways? In this book, Elad Yom-Tov argues that Internet data could change the way medical research is done, supplementing traditional tools to provide insights not otherwise available. He describes how studies of Internet searches have, among other things, already helped researchers track to side effects of prescription drugs, to understand the information needs of cancer patients and their families, and to recognize some of the causes of anorexia. Yom-Tov shows that the information collected can benefit humanity without sacrificing individual privacy. He explains why people go to the Internet with health questions; for one thing, it seems to be a safe place to ask anonymously about such matters as obesity, sex, and pregnancy. He describes in detrimental effects of pro-anorexia online content; tells how computer scientists can scour search engine data to improve public health by, for example, identifying risk factors for disease and centers of contagion; and tells how analyses of how people deal with upsetting diagnoses help doctors to treat patients and patients to understand their conditions.

In The Name Of Rome: The Men Who Won The Roman Empire

Product : In The Name Of Rome: The Men Who Won The Roman Empire
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : A definitive history of the great commanders of ancient Rome, from bestselling author Adrian Goldsworthy.   “In his elegantly accessible style, Goldsworthy offers gripping and swiftly erudite accounts of Roman wars and the great captains who fought them.  His heroes are never flavorless and generic, but magnificently Roman.  And it is especially Goldsworthy's vision of commanders deftly surfing the giant, irresistible waves of Roman military tradition, while navigating the floating logs, reefs, and treacherous sandbanks of Roman civilian politics, that makes the book indispensable not only to those interested in Rome and her battles, but to anyone who finds it astounding that military men, at once driven and imperiled by the odd and idiosyncratic ways of their societies, can accomplish great deeds.” —J. E. Lendon, author of Soldiers and Ghosts: A History of Battle in Classical Antiquity

Grant's Final Victory: Ulysses S. Grant's Heroic Last Year

Product : Grant's Final Victory: Ulysses S. Grant's Heroic Last Year
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Shortly after losing all of his wealth in a terrible 1884 swindle, Ulysses S. Grant learned he had terminal throat and mouth cancer. Destitute and dying, Grant began to write his memoirs to save his family from permanent financial ruin.As Grant continued his work, suffering increasing pain, the American public became aware of this race between Grant's writing and his fatal illness. Twenty years after his respectful and magnanimous demeanor toward Robert E. Lee at Appomattox, people in both the North and the South came to know Grant as the brave, honest man he was, now using his famous determination in this final effort. Grant finished Memoirs just four days before he died in July 1885.Published after his death by his friend Mark Twain, Grant's Memoirs became an instant bestseller, restoring his family's financial health and, more importantly, helping to cure the nation of bitter discord. More than any other American before or since, Grant, in his last year, was able to heal this—the country's greatest wound.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Is loving yourself really the solution to all your problems?In the world of popular psychology, there are few things more protected or indulged than that fragile little trait known as self-esteem. Today, it''s not the sin of pride we worry about, but the sin of not liking ourselves enough.In Ego Trip, psychiatrist Glynn Harrison takes aim at what has become one of Western society''s most entrenched ideologies. He charts the rise of this ubiquitous value, arguing that the science underlying it is flawed, that there is little evidence efforts to promote self-esteem work, and that, in its popular form of boosterism, self-esteem promotion comes with hazardous and unwanted side effects.Is there a more biblically and psychologically secure approach to big questions of significance and worth? Dr. Harrison asks.You will be intrigued, challenged, and quite possibly freed by his conclusion: compared with the failed ideology of self-esteem, the gospel offers the foundation for personal significance and meaning.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : In this six-session women's small group Bible study DVD, Let. It. Go., Karen Ehman provides practical, biblically based steps for letting go of the need to control. Let's face it: many women are wired to control. We make sure that the house is clean, the meals are prepared on time, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time. And trying to control it all is not only exhausting, but can also cause us to lose friends and sometimes, the affection of our families. It can earn wives and mothers the label of control freak and send those within our sphere of influence packing. In this humorous, yet thought-provoking small group Bible study you'll find the freedom and reward of living 'out of control' -- putting God in the rightful place he deserves in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, this study will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust. This DVD is designed for use together with the Let. It. Go. Participant Guide (sold separately). When used together, the small group study Participant Guide and DVD provide you with a practical tool that can strengthen your faith. Sessions include:1. God Called and He'd Like His Job Back 2. Combating the 'Me First' Mentality3. Pursuing the Appearance of Perfection 4. Practicing the Art of Soul Control 5. When Comparisons Lead to Over-Control6. Fixing Your Eyes on the Attitude Indicator

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : With the same clarity and accessibility as the classic On Solid Ground and Comprehension from the Ground Up , Sharon Taberski shares her latest thinking on how to use a variety of reading, writing, and talking experiences to help young students grow to be fluent readers. 105-minutes of succinct video clips of whole-class lessons, small-group instruction, and one-on-one conferences help teachers see that improving student’s comprehension happens in the course of excellent reading and writing instruction and that strategy instruction should play a supporting role–not a starring role–in children's reading development. To help facilitate staff-development sessions, the 64-page facilitator's guide contains: Session Plans that provide an organizing structure for your work with teachers divided into three parts: Access Knowledge, Develop Knowledge, and Synthesize Knowledge. Strand Overview handouts highlight key points of the strand and are more detailed than video overviews. Lesson in Action handouts provide a brief description of the lesson, the lesson focus, and highlight key student reading behaviors and teaching strategies. Noticing, Thinking, and Wondering handouts focus teachers’ video-viewing experience.

But she cannot hide from the formidable new power threatening to seize control of France from the dread “Dark Queen,” Catherine de Medici–a diabolical woman known only as the Silver Rose. Miri has no choice but to turn to the one man she distrusts as much as she desires: Simon Aristide, the charismatic witch-finder who is now himself the hunted, and who has reluctantly made an unholy pact with Catherine. Miri must defy throne and family to save all that she loves most–and command a future greater than she could ever imagine.Vibrant with stunning historical detail, alive with characters as richly passionate as they are compelling, The Silver Rose is a sweeping, exquisitely wrought tale from a mesmerizing storyteller.

Description : One of The Washington Post''s Best Poetry Collections of 2015One of NPR''s Best Books of 2015One of Flavorwire''s Best Poetry Books of 2015Long-listed for the National Book Award in poetryLong-listed for the 2016 PEN Open Book AwardWho the hell''s heaven is this? Rowan Ricardo Phillips offers many answers, and none at all, in Heaven, the piercing and revelatory encore to his award-winning debut, The Ground. Swerving elegantly from humor to heartbreak, from Colorado to Florida, from Dante''s Paradise to Homer''s Iliad, from knowledge to ignorance to awe, Phillips turns his gaze upward and outward, probing and upending notions of the beyond. Feeling, real feeling / with all its faulty / Architecture, is / Beyond a god''s touch-but it does not elude Phillips. Meditating on feverish boyhood, on two paintings by Chuck Close, on Shakespeare''s Measure for Measure, on a dead rooster by the side of the road in Ohio, on an elk grazing outside his window, his language remains eternally intoxicating, full of play, pathos, and surprise. The end, he writes, like / All I''ve ever told you, is uncertain. Or, elsewhere: The only way then to know a truth / Is to squint in its direction and poke. Phillips-who received a 2013 Whiting Writers'' Award as well as the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award-may not be certain, but as he squints and pokes in the direction of truth, his power of perception and elegance of expression create a place where beauty and truth come together and drift apart like a planet orbiting its star. The result is a book whose lush and wounding beauty will leave its mark on readers long after they''ve turned the last page.

Love For Sale: Pop Music In America

Product : Love For Sale: Pop Music In America
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : A personal, idiosyncratic history of popular music that also may well be definitive, from the revered music criticFrom the age of song sheets in the late nineteenth-century to the contemporary era of digital streaming, pop music has been our most influential laboratory for social and aesthetic experimentation, changing the world three minutes at a time. In Love for Sale, David Hajdu-one of the most respected critics and music historians of our time-draws on a lifetime of listening, playing, and writing about music to show how pop has done much more than peddle fantasies of love and sex to teenagers. From vaudeville singer Eva Tanguay, the I Don''t Care Girl who upended Victorian conceptions of feminine propriety to become one of the biggest stars of her day to the scandal of Blondie playing disco at CBGB, Hajdu presents an incisive and idiosyncratic history of a form that has repeatedly upset social and cultural expectations. Exhaustively researched and rich with fresh insights, Love for Sale is unbound by the usual tropes of pop music history. Hajdu, for instance, gives a star turn to Bessie Smith and the blues queens of the 1920s, who brought wildly transgressive sexuality to American audience decades before rock and roll. And there is Jimmie Rodgers, a former blackface minstrel performer, who created country music from the songs of rural white and blacks . . . entwined with the sound of the Swiss yodel. And then there are today''s practitioners of Electronic Dance Music, who Hajdu celebrates for carrying the pop revolution to heretofore unimaginable frontiers. At every turn, Hajdu surprises and challenges readers to think about our most familiar art in unexpected ways. Masterly and impassioned, authoritative and at times deeply personal, Love for Sale is a book of critical history informed by its writer''s own unique history as a besotted fan and lifelong student of pop.

Hogs Wild: Selected Reporting Pieces

Product : Hogs Wild: Selected Reporting Pieces
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Essays and Letters
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : A master of both distilled insight and utter nonsense (The Believer), Ian Frazier is one of the most gifted chroniclers of contemporary America. Hogs Wild assembles a decade''s worth of his finest essays and reportage, and demonstrates the irrepressible passions and artful digressions that distinguish his enduring body of work.Part muckraker, part adventurer, and part raconteur, Frazier beholds, captures, and occasionally reimagines the spirit of the American experience. He travels down South to examine feral hogs, and learns that their presence in any county is a strong indicator that it votes Republican. He introduces us to a man who, when his house is hit by a supposed meteorite, hopes to leverage the space object into opportunity for his family, and a New York City police detective who is fascinated with rap-music-related crimes. Alongside Frazier''s delight in the absurdities of contemporary life is his sense of social responsibility: there''s an echo of the great reform-minded writers in his pieces on a soup kitchen, opioid overdose deaths on Staten Island, and the rise in homelessness in New York City under Mayor Bloomberg.In each dizzying discovery, Hogs Wild unearths the joys of inquiry without agenda, curiosity without calculation. To read Frazier is to become a kind of social and political anthropologist--astute and deeply engaged.

Love Goes to Buildings on Fire: Five Years in New York That Changed Music Forever

Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Punk rock and hip-hop. Disco and salsa. The loft jazz scene and the downtown composers known as Minimalists. In the mid-1970s, New York City was a laboratory where all the major styles of modern music were reinvented-block by block, by musicians who knew, admired, and borrowed from one another. Crime was everywhere, the government was broke, and the infrastructure was collapsing. But rent was cheap, and the possibilities for musical exploration were limitless.Love Goes to Buildings on Fire is the first book to tell the full story of the era''s music scenes and the phenomenal and surprising ways they intersected. From New Year''s Day 1973 to New Year''s Eve 1977, the book moves panoramically from post-Dylan Greenwich Village, to the arson-scarred South Bronx barrios where salsa and hip-hop were created, to the lower Manhattan lofts where jazz and classical music were reimagined, to ramshackle clubs like CBGB and the Gallery, where rock and dance music were hot-wired for a new generation.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : A generous selection that shows the poet James Lasdun at his lyrically inventive bestTwo men grapple with jumper cables, trying to make a stand // in this last corner of our realm; machinery . . . A man on his way to see his therapist encounters a female police officer in an elevator and feels himself regressing to the original essence, the masculine / criminal salt. A teenager is tricked into eating a spoonful of lime pickle by his girlfriend''s father. An Englishman in the Catskills ponders the nature of exile, is chased by yellow jackets, gets a haircut. James Lasdun''s subjects are often quotidian-but his treatment of them never is. Under his transformative gaze, the familiar becomes strange, the local becomes foreign, and the minor becomes epic. Lasdun has been winning acclaim since his first collection, 1988''s A Jump Start-Helen Vendler has lauded his ability to give brisk shape to contemporary and classical events; The New York Times has praised the sharp, slicing imagery of his work. Now, in Bluestone, which selects from all three of his previous collections and includes poems from his fourth, Water Sessions, previously available only in the U.K., readers will be able to appreciate the full sweep of this capacious talent: his delicate wit, his gift for invention, his keen observational eye. It is a gathering that affirms Lasdun''s position as, to quote Anthony Hecht, one of the most gifted, vivid, and deft poets now writing in English.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : A shocking exposé of sexual abuse and the struggle for justice at one of America''s most prestigious schoolsIn June 2012, Amos Kamil''s New York Times Magazine cover story, Prep-School Predators, caused a shock wave that is still rippling. In his piece, he detailed a decades-long pattern of sexual abuse at the highly prestigious Horace Mann School in the Bronx. After the article appeared, Kamil closely observed the fallout. While the article revealed the misdeeds of three teachers, this was just the beginning: An extraordinary twenty-two former Horace Mann teachers and administrators have since been accused of abuse.In Great Is the Truth, Kamil and his coauthor, Sean Elder, tell the riveting story of how one of the country''s leading schools was beset by scandal. They relate what happened as survivors of abuse came forward and sought redress. We see the school and its influential backers circle the wagons. We meet Horace Mann alumni who work to change New York State''s sexual abuse laws. And we encounter a former teacher who candidly recalls his inappropriate relationships with students.Great is the truth and it prevails may be the motto of Horace Mann, but for many alumni the truth remains all too hard to come by. This book is essential reading for anyone trying to understand how an elite institution can fail those in its charge, and what can be done about it.

Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life

Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : From Graham Nash—the legendary musician and founding member of the iconic bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies—comes a candid and riveting autobiography that belongs on the reading list of every classic rock fan. Graham Nash''s songs defined a generation and helped shape the history of rock and roll—he’s written over 200 songs, including such classic hits as Carrie Anne, “On A Carousel,” Simple Man, Our House, “Marrakesh Express,” and Teach Your Children. From the opening salvos of the British Rock Revolution to the last shudders of Woodstock, he has rocked and rolled wherever music mattered. Now Graham is ready to tell his story: his lower-class childhood in post-war England, his early days in the British Invasion group The Hollies; becoming the lover and muse of Joni Mitchell during the halcyon years, when both produced their most introspective and important work; meeting Stephen Stills and David Crosby and reaching superstardom with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and his enduring career as a solo musician and political activist.  Nash has valuable insights into a world and time many think they know from the outside but few have experienced at its epicenter, and equally wonderful anecdotes about the people around him: the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Dylan, and other rock luminaries. From London to Laurel Canyon and beyond, Wild Tales is a revealing look back at an extraordinary life—with all the highs and the lows; the love, the sex, and the jealousy; the politics; the drugs; the insanity—and the sanity—of a magical era of music.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Comet nuclei are the most primitive bodies in the solar system. They have been created far away from the early Sun and it is supposed that their material has been altered the least since their formation.This volume presents the results of a scientific workshop on comet nuclei and is written by experts working on interstellar clouds, star-forming regions, the solar nebula, and comets. The articles formulate the current understanding and interconnectivity of the various source regions of comet nuclei and their associated compositions and orbital characteristics. This includes a discussion on the transport of materials into the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud regions of the solar system. The distinction between direct measurements of cometary material properties and properties derived from indirect means are emphasized with the aim to guide future investigations.This book serves as a guide for researchers and graduate students working in the field of planetology and solar system exploration. It should also help to influence the planning of scientific strategies for the encounter of the Rosetta spacecraft with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

InSocial Action with Children and Familiesthe authors argue that ways must be found to work together to promote environments in which children can flourish, and to develop forms of public life which are friendly to children and their parents.Recent changes in child care systems have put more pressures on those working in it. Social workers have become more open to public scrutiny and are expected to respond to problems rooted in social and economic aspects of their clients'' or services users'' lives. Legislation stresses working in partnership with parents, other professionals, and community groups.The central aim ofSocial Action with Children and Familiesis to help those working in this field to find a new, more positive sense of direction and purpose. It will be invaluable reading to those studying social work, social policy and public administration as well as to all professionals working in these areas.

Rethinking third Cinema

Product : Rethinking third Cinema
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This important anthology addresses established notions about Third Cinema theory, and the cinema practice of developing and postcolonial nations. The ''Third Cinema'' movement called for a politicised film-making practice in Africa, Asia and Latin America, one which would take on board issues of race, class, religion, and national integrity. The films which resulted from the movement, from directors such as Ousmane Sembene, Satyajit Ray and Nelson Pereira dos Santos, are among the most culturally signficant, politically sophisticated and frequently studied films of the 1960s and 1970s. However, despite the contemporary popularity and critical attention enjoyed by films from Asia and Latin America in particular, Third Cinema and Third Cinema theory appears to have lost its momentum.Rethinking Third Cinemaseeks to bring Third Cinema and Third Cinema theory back into the critical spotlight. The contributors address the most difficult and challenging questions Third Cinema poses, suggesting new methodologies and redirections of existing ones. Crucially, they also re-examine the entire phenomenon of film-making in a fast-vanishing ''Third World'', with case studies of the cinemas of India, Iran and Hong Kong, among others.

The Responsibility To Protect And The International Criminal Court: Protection And Prosecution In Kenya

Product : The Responsibility To Protect And The International Criminal Court: Protection And Prosecution In Kenya
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book provides an account of how the responsibility to protect (R2P) and the International Criminal Court (ICC) were applied in Kenya.In the aftermath of the disputed presidential election on 27 December 2007, Kenya descended into its worst crisis since independence. The 2007-08 post-election crisis in Kenya was among the first situations in which there was an appeal to both the responsibility to protect and a responsibility to prosecute. Despite efforts to ensure compatibility between R2P and the ICC, the two were far from coherent in this case, as the measures designed to protect the population in Kenya undermined the efforts to prosecute perpetrators. This book will highlight how the African Union-sponsored mediation process effectively brought an end to eight weeks of bloodshed, while simultaneously entrenching those involved in orchestrating the violence. Having secured positions of power, politicians bearing responsibility for the violence set out to block prosecutions at both the domestic and international levels, eventually leading the cases against them to unravel. As this book will reveal, by utilising the machinery of the state as a shield against prosecution, the Government of Kenya reverted to an approach to sovereignty that both R2P and the ICC were specifically designed to counteract.This book will be of interest to students of the Responsibility to Protect, humanitarian intervention, African politics, war and conflict studies and IR/Security Studies in general.

Conservatism In The Black Community: To The Right And Misunderstood

Product : Conservatism In The Black Community: To The Right And Misunderstood
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Conservatism in the Black Community examines the contemporary meanings of Black Conservatism and its influence on black political behavior, providing a basis for understanding the impact this phenomenon has on black political behavior. Lewis analyzes conservatism within the black ideological framework, while also explaining the meaning of conservatism in the black community. While scholars have argued that the level of support for conservatism among blacks is minimal because conservatism is antithetical to black interest, there are a cadre of conservative political intellectuals and political elites in America. Do their views influence those of the wider Black population? Or does the media merely amplify their voices but with little support? What part of contemporary Black conservatism has found a home in the Tea Party movement? Focusing on what conservatism means to Blacks at the grassroots level and in what issue areas Blacks as a whole tend to have more conservative views, this work neither critiques nor praises Black Conservatism. The results of Lewis?s mix of quantitative and qualitative methodologies will be of strong interest to students and scholars of Black politics, Black studies, and political behavior more generally.

Re-thinking Intellectual Property: The Political Economy of Copyright Protection in the Digital Era

Product : Re-thinking Intellectual Property: The Political Economy of Copyright Protection in the Digital Era
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Copyright laws, along with other Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), constitute the legal foundation for the global knowledge-based economy and copyright law now plays an increasingly important role in the creation of business fortunes, the access to and dissemination of knowledge, and human development in general.This book examines major problems in the current IPR regime, particularly the copyright regime, in the context of digitization, knowledge economy, and globalization. The book contends that the final goals of IP law and policy-making are to enhance the progress of science and economic development, and the use and even-distribution of intellectual resource at the global level. By referring to major international IP consensus, recent developments in regional IP forums and the successful experiences of various countries, YiJun Tian is able to provide specific theoretical, policy and legislative suggestions for addressing current copyright challenges. The book contends that each nation should strengthen the coordination of its IP protection and development strategies, adopt a more systematic and heterogeneous approach, and make IP theory, policy, specific legal mechanisms, marketing forces and all other available measures work collectively to deal with digital challenges and in a way that contributes to the establishment of a knowledge equilibrium international society.

Climate Change And Armed Conflict: Hot And Cold Wars

Product : Climate Change And Armed Conflict: Hot And Cold Wars
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book examines the evolution of the relationship between climate change and conflict, and attempts to visualize future trends. Owing to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, current trends in climate change will not appreciably alter over the next half century even if drastic action is taken now. Changes in climate will produce unique types and modes of conflict, redefine the value of important resources, and create new challenges to maintaining social order and stability. This book examines the consequences of climate change and argues that it has and will produce two types of different types of conflict: ''cold wars'' and ''hot wars''. Cold wars will occur in northern and southern latitudes as warming draws countries into possible conflict due to expanding interests in exploiting new resources and territories (inter-state conflict). Hot wars will break out around the equator as warming expands and intensifies dry areas, increasing competition for scarce resources (intra-state conflict). Conflict is not inevitable, but it will also be a consequence of how states, international institutions and people react to changes in climate. Climate change and conflict have always shaped human experiences. This book lays out the parameters of the relationship, shows its history, and forecasts its trends, offering future conditions and opportunities for changing the historical path we are on. This book will be of great interest for students of climate change and environmental security, peace and conflict studies, and IR/security studies in general. James R. Lee is a Professor in the School of International Service, American University, Washington, DC and Associate Director of American University''s Center for Teaching Excellence. He is author of several books on international relations, including, most recently, Exploring the Gaps: Vital Links Between Trade, Environment and Culture (2000).

Contradictions Of Terrorism: Security, Risk And Resilience

Product : Contradictions Of Terrorism: Security, Risk And Resilience
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Over the last fifteen years there has been a significant growth in literature dealing with terrorism. Nevertheless, scholars within mainstream criminology have only recently begun to grapple with the problem of terrorism in a sustained fashion. In this provocative book the authors provide both an exposition of the contradictions that have emerged around the regulation of terrorism and an incisive analysis of the questions that the management of terrorism poses for the discipline. Focusing primarily on the processes and practices that have emerged in the United States and the United Kingdom, the book provides a critical account of the political construction, mediation and regulation of terrorist threat since the events of 9/11. The authors explore the ways in which new institutional modes of risk assessment based on the principle of pre-emption have impacted on individuals targeted by them. Noting the dilemmas produced by the pre-emptive turn, the authors also elucidate more recent moves to develop the idea of resilience in counter-terrorism and security policy. This book will be suitable for academics and students interested in political violence, terrorism, geopolitics and risk, as well as for practitioners and experts working in the security industries.

Public Relations And The History Of Ideas

Product : Public Relations And The History Of Ideas
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This innovative book explores ten great works, by well-known thinkers and orators, whose impact has been intellectual, practical and global. Most of the works significantly precede public relations as a phrase or profession, but all are in no doubt about the force of planned public communication, and the power that lies with those managing the process. The works are stimulating and diverse and were written to address some of society?s biggest challenges. Although not traditionally the focus of public relations research, they have all had a global impact as communicators and as the foundation for fundamental ideas, from spirituality to war and economics to social justice. Each addresses the implications of structured communication between organizations and societies, and scrutinizes or advocates activities that are now central to PR and its morality. They could not ignore PR, and PR cannot ignore them. This book will be essential reading for researchers and scholars in public relations and communication and will also be of inter-disciplinary interest to study in sociology, literature, philosophy, politics and history.

Museums And Social Activism: Engaged Protest

Product : Museums And Social Activism: Engaged Protest
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Museums and Social Activism is the first study to bring together historical accounts of the African American and later American Indian civil rights-related social and reform movements that took place on the Smithsonian Mall through the 1960s and 1970s in Washington DC with the significant but unknown story about museological transformation and curatorial activism that occurred in the Division of Political and Reform History at the National Museum of American History at this time. Based on interdisciplinary field-based research that has brought together cross-cultural and international perspectives from the fields of Museum Studies, Public History, Political Science and Social Movement Studies with empirical investigation, the book explores and analyses museums? ? specifically, curators? ? relationships with political stakeholders past and present. By understanding the transformations of an earlier period, Museums and Social Activism offers provocative perspectives on the cultural and political significance of contemporary museums. It highlights the relevance of past practice and events for museums today and improved ways of understanding the challenges and opportunities that result from the ongoing process of renewal that museums continue to exemplify.

Anglo-american Relations: Contemporary Perspectives

Product : Anglo-american Relations: Contemporary Perspectives
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book provides an examination of contemporary Anglo-American relations. Sometimes controversially referred to as the Special Relationship, Anglo-American relations constitute arguably the most important bilateral relationship of modern times. However, in recent years, there have been frequent pronouncements that this relationship has lost its ¿specialness¿.This volume brings together experts from Britain, Europe and North America in a long-overdue examination of contemporary Anglo-American relations that paints a somewhat different picture. The discussion ranges widely, from an analysis of the special relationship of culture and friendship, to an examination of both traditional (e.g. nuclear relations) and more recent (e.g. environment) policies. Contemporary developments are discussed in the context of longer-term trends and contributing authors draw upon a range of different disciplines, including political science, diplomacy studies, business studies and economics. Coupled with a substantive introduction and conclusion, the result is an insightful and engaging portrayal of the complex Anglo-American relationship.The book will be of great interest to students of US and UK foreign policy, diplomacy and international relations in general.

Social And Cultural Change In Central Asia: The Soviet Legacy

Product : Social And Cultural Change In Central Asia: The Soviet Legacy
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Focusing on Soviet culture and its social ramifications both during the Soviet period and in the post-Soviet era, this book addresses important themes associated with Sovietisation and socialisation in the Central Asian states of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.The book contains contributions from scholars in a variety of disciplines, and looks at topics that have been somewhat marginalised in contemporary studies of Central Asia, including education, anthropology, music, literature and poetry, film, history and state-identity construction, and social transformation. It examines how the Soviet legacy affected the development of the republics in Central Asia, and how it continues to affect the society, culture and polity of the region. Although each state in Central Asia has increasingly developed its own way, the book shows that the states have in varying degrees retained the influence of the Soviet past, or else are busily establishing new political identities in reaction to their Soviet legacy, and in doing so laying claim to, re-defining, and reinventing pre-Soviet and Soviet images and narratives.Throwing new light and presenting alternate points of view on the question of the Soviet legacy in the Soviet Central Asian successor states, the book is of interest to academics in the field of Russian and Central Asian Studies.

Climate Change And Anthropos: Planet, People And Places

Product : Climate Change And Anthropos: Planet, People And Places
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Anthropos, in the sense of species as well as cultures and ethics, locates humans as part of much larger orders of existence ¿ fundamental when thinking about climate change. This book offers a new way of exploring the significance of locality and lives in the epoch of the Anthropocene, a time when humans confront the limits of our control over nature. Many scholars now write about the ethics, policies and politics of climate change, focussing on global processes and effects. The book¿s innovative approach to cross-cultural comparison and a regionally based study explores people¿s experiences of environmental change and the meaning of climate change for diverse human worlds in a changing biosphere.The main study site is the Hunter Valley in southeast Australia: an ecological region defined by the Hunter River catchment; a dwelling place for many generations of people; and a key location for transnational corporations focussed on the mining, burning and export of black coal. Abundant fossil fuel reserves tie Hunter people and places to the Asia Pacific ¿ the engine room of global economic growth in the twenty-first century and the largest user of the planet¿s natural resources. The book analyses the nexus of place and perceptions, political economy and social organisation in situations where environmental changes are radically transforming collective worlds.Based on an anthropological approach informed by other ways of thinking about environment-people relationships, this book analyses the social and cultural dimensions of climate change holistically. Each chapter links the large scales of species and planet with small places, commodity chains, local actions, myths and values, as well as the mingled strands of dystopian imaginings and strivings for recuperative renewal in an era of transition.

Detection And Prevention Of Identity-based Bullying: Social Justice Perspectives

Product : Detection And Prevention Of Identity-based Bullying: Social Justice Perspectives
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Bullying in schools has become the focus of a growing body of literature; however, much of that work diminishes the role of social context, social identities, and prejudices despite extensive research evidence suggesting that many victims of bullying are targeted because of an aspect of their social identity. This book demonstrates how the prevention and intervention of this phenomenon, termed identity-based bullying, is a social justice issue.Expanding beyond bullying prevention that focuses on individual perpetrators, the book examines identity-based bullying in schools as a microcosm of larger systemic tensions and conflicts. The author utilizes a social constructivist perspective to understand the experiences of children as active agents in their own lives. She also provides an international framework to describe the impact of culture, social structures, and politics from the US and the UK. Challenges and barriers to addressing identity-based bullying are explored and recommendations are made for best practices for teachers, administrators, and mental health professionals to prevent and respond to identity-based bullying.

Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis And Counselling: Appraisals And Reappraisals

Product : Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis And Counselling: Appraisals And Reappraisals
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Is therapy?s relational turn only something to celebrate? It is a major worldwide trend taking place in all the therapy traditions. But up to now appreciation of these developments has not been twinned with well-informed and constructive critique. Hence practitioners and students have not been able to engage as fully as they might with the complex questions and issues that relational working presents. Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and Counselling: Appraisals and reappraisals seeks to redress this balance. In this unique book, Del Loewenthal and Andrew Samuels bring together the contributions of writers from several countries and many therapy modalities, all of whom have engaged with what ?relational? means ? whether to espouse the idea, to urge caution or to engage in sceptical reflection. Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and Counselling: Appraisals and reappraisals presents clinical work of the highest standard in a way that is moving and draws the reader in. The more intellectual contributions are accessible and respectful, avoiding the polarising tendencies of the profession. At a time when there has been a decline in the provision and standing of the depth therapies across the globe, this book shows that, whatever the criticisms, there is still creative energy in the field. It is hoped that practitioners and students in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy counselling and counselling psychology will welcome this book for its cutting edge content and compassionate tone.

Description : Through candid discussions and personal counter-narrative stories,Black Faculty in the Academyexplores the experiences and challenges faced by faculty of color in academe. Black faculty in predominantly White college and university settings must negotiate multiple and competing identities while struggling with issues of marginality, otherness, and invisible barriers. This important book illuminates how faculty can develop a professional identity that leads to success in academe, while at the same time remaining true to cultural and personal identities. Through rich narratives, chapter authors situate race-related encounters at the center of their experience in an effort to deconstruct and challenge commonly held assumptions about life in academe. They also provide key recommendations and strategies to help faculty of color ensure their continued professional success. Framed by critical race theory, these stories show how faculty can successfully maneuver through all stages of a career in academe, including tenure and promotion, publication, mentoring, networking, teaching, and dealing with institutional climate issues. This valuable book is for faculty and administrators seeking to create an environment that nurtures professional growth and fosters success among Black faculty.

Because of their position, Live Projects as vehicle for simultaneously providing teaching and service has the potential to recalibrate the contesting claims that both academia and profession make to architecture.This collection of essays and case studies consolidates current discussions on theory and learning ambitions, academic best practices, negotiation with licensure and accreditation, and considerations of architectural integrity. It is an invaluable resource to current and future Live Projects advocates ¿ whether they aim to move from pedagogy into practice or practice into pedagogy.

Africans And Britons In The Age Of Empires, 1660-1980

Product : Africans And Britons In The Age Of Empires, 1660-1980
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Africans and Britons in the Age of Empires, 1660-1980tells the stories of the intertwined lives of African and British peoples over more than three centuries. In seven chapters and an epilogue, Myles Osborne and Susan Kingsley Kent explore the characters that comprised the British presence in Africa: the slave traders and slaves, missionaries and explorers, imperialists and miners, farmers, settlers, lawyers, chiefs, prophets, intellectuals, politicians, and soldiers of all colors.The authors show that the oft-told narrative of a monolithic imperial power ruling inexorably over passive African victims no longer stands scrutiny; rather, at every turn, Africans and Britons interacted with one another in a complex set of relationships that involved as much cooperation and negotiation as resistance and force, whether during the era of the slave trade, the world wars, or the period of decolonization. The British presence provoked a wide range of responses, reactions, and transformations in various aspects of African life; but at the same time, the experience of empire in Africa ¿ and its ultimate collapse ¿ also compelled the British to view themselves and their empire in new ways.Written by an Africanist and a historian of imperial Britain and illustrated with maps and photographs,Africans and Britons in the Age of Empires, 1660-1980provides a uniquely rich perspective for understanding both African and British history.

Allure Of The Incomplete, Imperfect, And Impermanent: Designing And Appreciating Architecture As Nature

Product : Allure Of The Incomplete, Imperfect, And Impermanent: Designing And Appreciating Architecture As Nature
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Architects have long operated based on the assumption that a building is ''complete'' once construction has finished. Striving to create a perfect building, they wish for it to stay in its original state indefinitely, viewing any subsequent alterations as unintended effects or the results of degeneration. The ideal is for a piece of architecture to remain permanently perfect and complete. This contrasts sharply with reality where changes take place as people move in, requirements change, events happen, and building materials are subject to wear and tear. Rumiko Handa argues it is time to correct this imbalance. Using examples ranging from the Roman Coliseum to Japanese tea rooms, she draws attention to an area that is usually ignored: the allure of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent architecture. By focusing on what happens to buildings after they are ?complete?, she shows that the ?afterlife? is in fact the very ?life? of a building. However, the book goes beyond theoretical debate. Addressing professionals as well as architecture students and educators, it persuades architects of the necessity to anticipate possible future changes and to incorporate these into their original designs.

Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Targeting regional economic development (TRED) has a long and rich tradition among academic economists and in the world of economic development practitioners. This book builds on a series of workshops and papers organized by The Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development (NERCRD) at the Pennsylvania State University and the Rural Policy Research Centre (RUPRI) at the University of Missouri. Through the coordinated efforts of NERCRD and RUPRI, a network of university based researchers and Extension education specialists was developed and provides the foundation of this new edited volume.For the first time in a single book, Goetz, Deller and Harris present an innovative approach through a collection of chapters discussing industry targeting and the relevance of TRED as an important analytical tool for practical targeting purposes. The papers present issues surrounding community economic development, clusters in industry and rural communities and the role of agglomeration economies. The book provides the reader with insights into not only the theoretical foundations of targeting as well as empirical methods, but also approaches for using the community-level analysis to affect policy directions.

Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This volume draws together scholarship across a number of disciplines ? history, sociology, media and cultural studies, political science, Slavonic studies ? to examine the significance of the sport of football within Southeastern Europe, with an especial focus on countries of the former Yugoslavia. The volume is timely as there is growing recognition inside and beyond the academy that football is a key cultural site in which the tensions within the region have been, and continue to be, reflected. Important issues such as resurgent nationalism, ethno/religious identity construction, and collective masculine identity are played out in relation to the sport of football. The papers within the volume explore these and other themes in detailed case studies that will be of interest to academics and policy makers concerned with wanting to know more about how football should be considered within agendas focused on reconciliation and a socially inclusive future.

Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Sandplay in Three Voicesprovides a unique and engaging understanding of sandplay - a growing modality of psychotherapy. Emerging out of informal conversations among three senior therapists, it examines the essential aspects of sandplay therapy as well as the depth and breadth of the human psyche.The book is organized into eight sections covering eight of the most important topics in sandplay - Therapist, Silence, Child, Mother, Self, Shadow, Chaos, and Numinous. Each section begins with a trialogue discussing theory, history and practice of sandplay in that area. The trialogues allow the reader to witness three senior therapists addressing and attempting to understand the many layers of each topic, and reflect their agreements and disagreements as they reveal their individual thoughts on, and personal experiences of, the themes they discuss. Each trialogue is followed by a set of solo presentations in which each author focuses on her contribution, and on the role of each topic in sandplay.Illustrated by original clinical examples, this unique approach addresses issues of concern to analysts and other psychotherapists. Its basic orientation makes it of particular value in the study, practice and teaching of sandplay therapy.

Olympic Media: Inside the Biggest Show on Television

Product : Olympic Media: Inside the Biggest Show on Television
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Located in the United States, NBC (National Broadcasting Company) is the biggest and most powerful Olympic network in the world, having won the rights to televise both the Summer and the Winter Olympic Games. By way of attracting more viewers of both sexes and all ages and ethnicities than any other sporting event, and through the production of breathtaking spectacles and absorbing stories, NBC¿s Olympic telecasts have huge power and potential to shape viewer perceptions.Billings¿s unique text examines the production, content, and potential effects of NBC¿s Olympic telecasts. Interviews with key NBC Olympic producers and sportscasters (including NBC Universal Sports and Olympics President Dick Ebersol and primetime anchor Bob Costas) outline the inner workings of the NBC Olympic machine; content analyses from ten years of Olympic telecasts (1996-2006) examine the portrayal of nationality, gender, and ethnicity within NBC¿s telecast; and survey analyses interrogate the extent to which NBC¿s storytelling process affects viewer beliefs about identity issues. This mixed-method approach offers valuable insights into what Billings portrays as the biggest show on television.

Deleuze & Guattari: Emergent Law

Product : Deleuze & Guattari: Emergent Law
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Deleuze & Guattari: Emergent Lawis an exposition and development of Deleuze & Guattari''s legal theory. Although there has been considerable interest in Deleuze & Guattari in critical legal studies, as well as considerable interest in legality in Deleuze & Guattari studies, this is the first book to focus exclusively on Deleuze & Guattari and law. Situating Deleuze & Guattari''s engagement with social organisation and legality in the context of their theory of ''abstract machines'' and ''intensive assemblages'', Jamie Murray presents their theory of law as that of a two-fold conception of, first, a transcendent molar law and, second, an immanent molecular emergent law. Transcendent molar legality is the traditional object of legal theory. And, as explicated here, immanent molecular emergent law is the novel juridical object that Deleuze & Guattari identify. Developing this conception, Deleuze & Guattari: Emergent Law draws out its implications for current and for future legal theory; arguing that it provides the basis for a new jurisprudence capable of creating new concepts of legality.

Development And Welfare Policy In South Asia

Product : Development And Welfare Policy In South Asia
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This book sheds light on social policies in six South Asian countries introduced between 2003 and 2013, examining the ways in which these policies have come about, and what this reflects about the nature of the state in each of these countries. It offers a detailed analysis of the nature of these policies introduced in recent years in Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and illustrates the similarities and differences in policy approaches amongst the six countries. Through this analysis, the book explores the thesis of whether there is a particular type of ¿developmental welfare state¿ that can be observed across South Asia. The focus is on social policies or policies designed to address poverty and deliver welfare at the level of programming and design, i.e. the stated intent of these policies. The book also presents an analysis of the fiscal space available in each of the six countries, thereby drawing conclusions about the financial feasibility of a ¿developmental welfare state¿ model in the region.This comprehensive book uniquely explores critical aspects of policy debates on a possible move from welfare to ¿rights¿. It introduces students and researchers in development studies, social policy and South Asian studies to innovative welfare programmes in South Asia and gives a new perspective on the nature and patterns of welfare in South Asia with the view of tackling inequality and promoting well-being.

Sites Of Popular Music Heritage: Memories, Histories, Places

Product : Sites Of Popular Music Heritage: Memories, Histories, Places
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : This volume examines the location of memories and histories of popular music and its multiple pasts, exploring the different ¿places¿ in which popular music can be situated, including the local physical site, the museum storeroom and exhibition space, and the digitized archive and display space made possible by the internet. Contributors from a broad range of disciplines such as archive studies, popular music studies, media and cultural studies, leisure and tourism, sociology, museum studies, communication studies, cultural geography, and social anthropology visit the specialized locus of popular music histories and heritage, offering diverse set of approaches. Popular music studies has increasingly engaged with popular music histories, exploring memory processes and considering identity, collective and cultural memory, and notions of popular culture¿s heritage values, yet few accounts have spatially located such trends to focus on the spaces and places where we encounter and engender our relationship with popular music¿s history and legacies. This book offers a timely re-evaluation of such sites, reinserting them into the narratives of popular music and offering new perspectives on their function and significance within the production of popular music heritage. Bringing together recent research based on extensive fieldwork from scholars of popular music studies, cultural sociology, and museum studies, alongside the new insights of practice-based considerations of current practitioners within the field of popular music heritage, this is the first collection to address the interdisciplinary interest in situating popular music histories, heritages, and pasts. The book will therefore appeal to a wide and growing academic readership focused on issues of heritage, cultural memory, and popular music, and provide a timely intervention in a field of study that is engaging scholars from across a broad spectrum of disciplinary backgrounds and theoretical perspectives.

An Archaeology Of The Immaterial: The Ascetic Object, Disengaging The Material World

Product : An Archaeology Of The Immaterial: The Ascetic Object, Disengaging The Material World
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : An Archaeology of the Immaterialexamines a highly significant but poorly understood aspect of material culture studies: the active rejection of the material world. Buchli argues that this is evident in a number of cultural projects, including anti-consumerism and asceticism, as well as other attempts to transcend material circumstances. Exploring the cultural work which can be achieved when the material is rejected, and the social effects of these ¿dematerialisations¿, this book situates the way some people disengage from the world as a specific kind of physical engagement which has profound implications for our understanding of personhood and materiality.Using case studies which range widely in time over Western societies and the technologies of materialising the immaterial, from icons to the scanning tunnelling microscope and 3-D printing, Buchli addresses the significance of immateriality for our own economics, cultural perceptions, and emerging forms of social inclusion and exclusion.An Archaeology of the Immaterialis thus an important and innovative contribution to material cultural studies which demonstrates that the making of the immaterial is, like the making of the material, a profoundly powerful operation which works to exert social control and delineate the borders of the imaginable and the enfranchised.

Vulnerabilities, Care And Family Law

Product : Vulnerabilities, Care And Family Law
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : While in the past family life was characterised as a haven from the harsh realities of life, it is now recognised as a site of vulnerabilities and a place where care work can go unacknowledged and be a source of social and economic hardship. This book addresses the strong relationships that exist between vulnerability and care and dependency in particular contexts, where family law and social policy have a contribution to make.A fundamental premise of this collection is that vulnerability needs to be analysed in a way that gets at the heart of the differential power relationships that exist in society, particularly in respect of access to family justice, including effective social policy and law targeted at the specific needs of families in mutually dependent caring relationships. It is therefore crucial to critically examine the various approaches taken by policy makers and law reformers in order to understand the range of ways that some families, and some family members, may be rendered more vulnerable than others.The first book of its kind to provide an intersectional approach to this subject,Vulnerabilities, Care and Family Lawwill be of interest to students and practitioners of social policy and family law.

Ethics In Islam: Friendship In The Political Thought Of  Al-tawhidi And His Contemporaries

Product : Ethics In Islam: Friendship In The Political Thought Of Al-tawhidi And His Contemporaries
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 6
Description : Offering a new reading of Islamic ethical and political thought in the B¿yid period (334-440/946-1048), this book focuses particularly on the philosopher Ab¿ Hayy¿n al-Tawh¿d¿ who lived in Baghdad and what is now western Iran.Ethics in Islamprovides the first major treatment of al-Tawh¿d¿''s ethics, political thought, and social idealism, investigating the complex influences that shaped this thought and especially his concept of friendship, which is analysed in the unique context of B¿yid society. Al-Tawh¿d¿ revives the value of friendship in politics. He introduces it as the best way to reform social and political order and as a means to the good life, to restrain passion and self-interest, to bring about cooperation and promote reason, and for action in opposition to religious zeal. Instead of seeing him as alienated from society, supposedly rejecting traditional Muslim beliefs, this book places him in his historical and intellectual contexts, and shows that while he was original in many ways, his outlook was firmly rooted in the Islamic culture in which he was educated.Contributing to modern discussions of Islam and political ethics, this book is of interest to scholars and researchers of political philosophy, comparative ethical thought and Islamic studies.
