Scholars in the field have started to address critical questions such as: - Why do family firms deserve special research attention? - Are family firms really different from other business organizations? - Is there a shared definition of family firms? This four-volume work addresses these key concerns and provides a rich picture of what we know about family businesses and enterprising families, as well as including critical reflections on major areas and contributions.

Leadership Development & PracticeFour-Volume Set"Richard Hall, David Grant and Joseph Raelin"27-Dec-14"Emerging complexities have arisen regarding leadership, leadership studies and leadership development requiring new approaches and new styles of organizational leadership. Changing environmental conditions including globalisation, climate change, increased market volatility, and shifts in the balance of power in the global political economy suggest the need for more creative, interactive and longer-term strategic leadership. In order to address and react to these shifts in understanding, one must review some essential questions: what constitutes leadership in the organisation, what is it that leaders actually do, or should do, and what can leadership achieve? Once confronted, the critical question addressed in this work is: how do we develop leadership to be more responsive to contemporary organizational conditions. This Major Work on Leadership Development and Practice engages this question by drawing together some of the most important and influential research from the related domains of leadership practice and leadership development. The first volume opens with a newly-written introduction, which explains the rationale for the Major Work, addresses the key questions set out above and outlines its structure, providing the reader with a clear, concise roadmap for all four volumes.

Emerging Approaches to LeadershipFour-Volume SetBoas Shamir11-Nov-14"For many years, traditional approaches to the study of leadership have reflected three common assumptions: First, leadership is a property of the leaders; second, there is a clear distinction between leaders and followers; and third, leadership is associated with a position in some traditional or formal hierarchy. It is only in the last decade or so that new approaches have started to emerge with the purpose of replacing the dominant leader-centered approach to studying, developing and practicing leadership. This four-volume major work for the first time brings together the key literature charting these developments - including theoretical perspectives, studies and research methods - and which represent new approaches as well as providing an overview of the emerging, exciting, and promising trends in the field of leadership studies. Volume One: Collective Leadership and/or Leadership as a Property of the Group Volume Two: Leadership in Emerging Contexts: Complexity, Virtuality, and Intergroup Situations Volume Three: Leadership in Social Networks Volume Four: Other Emerging Issues: The Role of Followers in the Leadership Process, Relational and Social Constructionist Approaches, and the Neuroscience Approach to Leadership""VOLUME ONE: COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP \ Collective Leadership with Power Symmetry: Lessons from Aboriginal PrehistoryKarl-Erik Sveiby \ All Those Years Ago: The Historical Underpinnings of Shared LeadershipCraig Pearce and Jay Conger \ The future of leadership: Combining vertical and shared leadership to transform knowledge workCraig Pearce \ Shared Leadership: Paradox and PossibilityJoyce Fletcher and Katrin Kaufer \ Distributed Leadership as a Unit of AnalysisPeter Gronn \ The Future of Distributed LeadershipPeter Gronn \ Leadership ConfigurationsPeter Gronn \ Leadership in Teams: A Functional Approach to Understanding Leadership Structures and ProcessesFrederick Morgeson, D.

"Democracy, Crime & Justice"Susanne Karstedt30-Jan-15"How do democratic values and institutions impact upon crime and justice? Civic values are promoted in rehabilitation programmes, civil society is emphasised by the government as a crime prevention strategy, and the democratic accountability of policing is often the forefront of the political agenda. How can an understanding of democracy illuminate our understanding of the key issues in the study of criminology and criminal justice? In this exciting and thought-provoking new book, Susanne Karstedt looks at the common link between these issues - democracy - and provides a systematic and accessible analysis of the relationship between our democratic values and how crime and justice is played out in both national and international arenas. Forging new interdisciplinary links between political science and criminology, the book looks at topics from terrorism, violent crime, and corruption, to citizenship, the death penalty and punitiveness. Written for advanced students in criminology, politics, international relations and sociology, this is a compelling text on a growing area of the criminology discipline.""With civic values promoted in rehabilitation programmes, civil society emphasized by the government as a crime-prevention strategy, and the democratic accountability of policing often at the forefront of the political agenda, an understanding of democracy can illuminate key issues in criminology and criminal justice in new and thought-provoking ways.

Understanding Working MemorySecond EditionTracy Packiam Alloway and Ross G. Alloway29-Nov-14"Working memory is our ability to hold information in the mind for brief periods of time, and hugely influences how well children do at school and beyond. Providing both an introduction to this topic, as well as suggested strategies to help support the development of working memory in the classroom, this is a key text for anyone studying or working in education. Understanding working memory can be particularly useful when working with children with conditions such as dyslexia, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders, where poor working memory is thought to be an underlying factor. Previously titled Improving Working Memory, this fantastic new edition now includes: a new chapter looking at the earliest years of learning a new chapter on emotional difficulties and working memory a clear chapter structure which looks at the what, where, why and how for every difficulty.

Student VoiceThe Instrument of ChangeRussell J. Quaglia and Michael J. Corso31-Oct-14"Meaningful school reform starts with your most powerful partner - your students! Students have plenty of opinions when it comes to school, and they're not all about free ice cream in the cafeteria.

It makes the abstract ideas explicit and connects theory with the real practices of geographical research and knowledge. Uniformly structured chapters: - explain the key ideas: scientific realism, anti-realism and idealism / positivism / critical rationalism / Marxism and critical realism / social constructionism and feminism / phenomenology and post-phenomenology / postmodernism and post-structuralism / complexity / moral philosophy - use examples that address both physical geography and human geography, making the ideas accessible to students of both - use a familiar and real-world example - 'the beach' - as an entry point to basic questions of philosophy, returning to this to illustrate and to explain the links between philosophy, theory, and methodology All of the chapters end with summaries and sources of further reading; a glossary explains key terms; exercises with commentaries are provided; and web resources of key articles from Progress in Human Geography and Progress in Physical Geography relating to each chapter are provided.

An Introduction to R for Spatial Analysis and MappingChris Brunsdon and Lex Comber27-Dec-14"This book provides an introduction to the use of R for spatial statistical analysis, geocomputation and the analysis of geographical information for researchers collecting and using data with location attached, largely through increased GPS functionality. Brunsdon and Comber take readers from 'zero to hero' in spatial analysis and mapping through functions they have developed and compiled into R libraries. This enables practical R application in GIS, spatial analyses, spatial statistics, mapping, and web-scraping.

It is gaining increasing importance in the era of the 'big data' revolution, of 'smart cities', of crowdsourced data, and of associated applications for viewing and managing data geographically - like Google Maps. This text provides a selection of practical examples of geocomputational techniques and 'hot topics' written by world leading practitioners. It integrates supporting materials in each chapter, such as code and data, so that readers can work through the examples themselves. Brunsdon and Singleton provide highly applied and practical discussions of visualisation and exploratory spatial data analysis, space time modelling, spatial algorithms, spatial regression and statistics, and enabling interactions through the use of neogeography. This accessible text has been specifically designed for those readers who are new to geocomputation as an area of research, showing how complex real-world problems can be solved through the integration of technology, data, and geocomputational methods. This is the applied primer for geocomputation in the social sciences.""Introduction \ Describing how the world looks \ Spatial Data Visualisation with RJames Cheshire and Robin Lovelace \ Geographical Agents in Three DimensionsPaul Torrens \ Scale, Power Laws, and Rank Size in Spatial AnalysisMichael Batty \ Exploring movements in space \ Agent-Based Modelling and Geographical Information SystemsAndrew Crooks \ Microsimulation Modelling for Social ScientistsKirk Harland; and Mark Birkin \ Spatio-Temporal Knowledge DiscoveryHarvey Miller \ Circular StatisticsDavid Rohde and Jonathan Corcoran \ Making geographical decisions \ Geodemographic AnalysisAlexandros Alexiou and Alexander Singleton \ Social Area Analysis and Self Organizing MapsSeth Spielman and David Folch \ Kernel density estimation and Percent Volume ContoursDaniel Lewis \ Location-Allocation ModelsMelanie Tomintz, Graham Clarke and Nawaf Alfadhli \ Explaining how the world works \ Geographically Weighted Generalised Linear ModellingTomoki Nakaya \ Spatial Interaction Models: A PrimerKaryn Morrissey \ Python Spatial Analysis Library (Pysal): An Update And IllustrationSergio Rey \ Reproducible Research: Concepts, Techniques and IssuesChris Brunsdon and Alex Singleton \ Enabling interactions \ Using Crowd-Sourced Information to Analyse Changes in the Onset of the North American SpringChris Brunsdon and Lex Comber \ Opensource GIS softwareOliver O'Brien \ Public Participation in Geocomputation to Support Spatial Decision Making Richard Kingston \ Conclusion"SAGE Publications Ltd416Core TextE978-1-4462-7292-3100978-1-4462-7293-034.99978-1-4739-0631-034.99

The Data Revolution"Big Data, Open Data, Data Infrastructures and Their Consequences"Rob Kitchin23-Aug-14"""Carefully distinguishing between big data and open data, and exploring various data infrastructures, Kitchin vividly illustrates how the data landscape is rapidly changing and calls for a revolution in how we think about data."" - Evelyn Ruppert, Goldsmiths, University of London ""Deconstructs the hype around the 'data revolution' to carefully guide us through the histories and the futures of 'big data.' The book skilfully engages with debates from across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences in order to produce a critical account of how data are enmeshed into enormous social, economic, and political changes that are taking place."" - Mark Graham, University of Oxford Traditionally, data have been a scarce commodity which, given their value, have been either jealously guarded or expensively traded. In recent years, technological developments and political lobbying have turned this position on its head. Data now flow as a deep and wide torrent, are low in cost and supported by robust infrastructures, and are increasingly open and accessible. A data revolution is underway, one that is already reshaping how knowledge is produced, business conducted, and governance enacted, as well as raising many questions concerning surveillance, privacy, security, profiling, social sorting, and intellectual property rights. In contrast to the hype and hubris of much media and business coverage, The Data Revolution provides a synoptic and critical analysis of the emerging data landscape. Accessible in style, the book provides: A synoptic overview of big data, open data and data infrastructures An introduction to thinking conceptually about data, data infrastructures, data analytics and data markets Acritical discussion of the technical shortcomings and the social, political and ethical consequences of the data revolution An analysis of the implications of the data revolution to academic, business and government practices""Chapter 1: Conceptualising Data \ What are data? \ Kinds of data \ Data, information, knowledge, wisdom \ Framing data \ Thinking critically about databases and data infrastructures \ Data assemblages and the data revolution \ Chapter 2: Small Data, Data Infrastructures and Data Brokers \ Data holdings, data archives and data infrastructures \ Rationale for research data infrastructures \ The challenges of building data infrastructures \ The challenges of building data infrastructuresData brokers and markets \ Chapter 3: Open and Linked Data \ Open data \ Linked data \ The case for open data \ The economics of open data \ Concerns with respect to opening data \ Chapter 4: Big Data \ Volume \ Exhaustive \ Resolution and indexicality \ Relationality \ Velocity \ Variety \ Flexibility \ Chapter 5: Enablers and Sources of Big Data \ The enablers of big data \ Sources of big data \ Directed Data \ Automated data \ Volunteered data \ Chapter 6: Data Analytics \ Pre-analytics \ Machine learning \ Data mining and pattern recognition \ Data visualisation and visual analytics \ Statistical analysis \ Prediction, simulation and optimization \ Chapter 7: The Governmental and Business Rationale for Big Data \ Governing people \ Managing organisations \ Leveraging value and producing capital \ Creating better places \ Chapter 8: The Reframing of Science, Social Science and Humanities Research \ The fourth paradigm in science? \ The re-emergence of empiricism \ The fallacies of empiricism \ Data-driven science \ Computational social sciences and digital humanities \ Chapter 9: Technical and Organisational Issues \ Deserts and deluges \ Access \ Data quality, veracity and lineage \ Data integration and interoperability \ Poor analysis and ecological fallacies \ Skills and human resourcing \ Chapter 10: Ethical, Political, Social and Legal Concerns \ Data shadows and dataveillance \ Privacy \ Data security \ Profiling, social sorting and redlining \ Secondary uses, control creep and anticipatory governance \ Modes of governance and technological lock-ins \ Chapter 11: Making Sense of the Data Revolution \ Understanding data and the data revolution \ Researching data assemblages \ Final thoughts"SAGE Publications Ltd240Supplementary TextIC978-1-4462-8747-765978-1-4462-8748-422.99978-1-4739-0826-022.99

Encyclopedia of TransportationSocial Science and PolicyMark Garrett30-Nov-14"Viewing transportation through the lens of current social, economic, and policy aspects, this four-volume reference work explores the topic of transportation across multiple disciplines within the social sciences and related areas, including geography, public policy, business, and economics. The book's articles, all written by experts in the field, seek to answer such questions as: What has been the legacy, not just economically but politically and socially as well, of President Eisenhower's modern interstate highway system in America? With that system and the infrastructure that supports it now in a state of decline and decay, what's the best path for the future at a time of enormous fiscal constraints? Should California politicians plunge ahead with plans for a high-speed rail that every expert says - despite the allure - will go largely unused and will never pay back the massive investment while at this very moment potholes go unfilled all across the state? What path is best for emerging countries to keep pace with dramatic economic growth for their part? What are the social and financial costs of gridlock in our cities? Features: Approximately 675 signed articles authored by prominent scholars are arranged in A-to-Z fashion and conclude with Further Readings and cross references. A Chronology helps readers put individual events into historical context; a Reader's Guide organizes entries by broad topical or thematic areas; a detailed index helps users quickly locate entries of most immediate interest; and a Resource Guide provides a list of journals, books, and associations and their websites. While articles were written to avoid jargon as much as possible, a Glossary provides quick definitions of technical terms. To ensure full, well-rounded coverage of the field, the General Editor with expertise in urban planning, public policy, and the environment worked alongside a Consulting Editor with a background in Civil Engineering. The index, Reader's Guide, and cross references combine for thorough search-and-browse capabilities in the electronic edition. Available in both print and electronic formats, Encyclopedia of Transportation is an ideal reference for libraries and those who want to explore the issues that surround transportation in the United States and around the world. Key Themes: Administration, Operations, and Evaluation Air Transportation Systems Economics of Transportation Energy, Environmental, and Health Impacts Facilities and Infrastructure Intermodal Transportation Systems International Transportation and Policy Labor Issues/Employee Relations Planning and Policy Safety and Security Social Issues in Transportation Surface Transportation Systems Technology, Design, and Engineering Transportation, Finance of Transportation Legislation Transportation Modeling Transportation Organizations and Agencies Travel Behavior and Research Water Transportation Systems""Existing reference works on the topic of transportation tend to focus on historical or on technical aspects. This is an academic work viewing transportation via the lens of current social, economic, and policy aspects. It explores the following questions and more: - What path is best for emerging countries to keep pace with the dramatic economic growth in transportation across the globe? - Should the best-and-brightest engineers be developing rocket systems for space tourism - or should they be focussing on the development and distribution of the electronic car for the masses? - How are decisions about transportation priorities and policies made? - What are the economic realities behind systems of various sorts? - What are the social costs when highways divide communities or leave them behind, or when an airport is expanded near a poor neighbourhood? - In an age of indiscriminant terrorism, how do we secure key nodes on transport systems in ways that don't unreasonably constrict those very systems? - Should transportation systems be publicly or privately funded and run? What are the social and financial costs of gridlock in our cities?""SAGE Publications, Inc"2016978-1-4522-6779-1370335

Health Intervention ResearchUnderstanding Research Design and MethodsSouraya Sidani29-Nov-14"At a time when evidence-based practice is the standard bearer for understanding health behaviour, problems and interventions, ensuring that researchers know the appropriate designs and methods for their research is more paramount than ever. Health Intervention Research will equip those doing research in these communities with the knowledge and tools they need to inform their methodological decisions when planning and conducting studies. This book describes both commonly used (e.g., randomized clinical trials) and advanced (e.g. preference trials, pragmatic trials) designs and methods for health intervention research. It outlines the theoretical reasoning underlying these different approaches, and synthesizes the evidence which supports or disputes different designs and methods. To achieve its aims, the book is divided into three main sections. The first section points to the need to base methodological decisions on evidence and highlights the importance of carefully selecting research designs and methods to maintain validity. The second section focuses on designs to determine the effects of intervention on outcomes, outlining their features and discussing how these can be used to evaluate interventions. The last section covers methods used in conducting intervention evaluation research. For each design and method, the following is covered: what it is, what the logic underlying it is, what the evidence supporting its effectiveness is, and also includes its advantages, its limitations, and how can it be implemented. This will be key reading for postgraduates and novice researchers in health and clinical psychology, health sciences and nursing."An Overview of Health Intervention Research \ Validity in Intervention Research \ Phases of Intervention Evaluation Research \ Experimental Designs or Randomized Controlled Trials: Characteristic Features \ Experimental Designs or Randomized Controlled Trials: Limitation \ Advances in Intervention Evaluation Designs: Extentions of Experimental Designs \ Advances in Intervention Evaluation Designs: Pragmatic and Preference Trials \ Selection of Participants \ Retention of Participants \ Assignment of Participants to Study Groups \ Implementation of the Intervention \ Principles of Outcome Measurement and AnalysisSAGE Publications Ltd264Core Text978-1-4462-5616-975978-1-4462-5617-626.99978-1-4739-0923-626.99

Child MaltreatmentThree Volume-SetEileen Munro and Trish Hiddlleston15-Mar-15"The protection of children from maltreatment is a worldwide challenge. Social context plays a significant role in both the definition and society's responses to child maltreatment. The core concept of child maltreatment is socially constructed with variations in its meaning over time and between cultures, creating significant challenges and resulting in a tension between respecting different cultures yet having one law or standard applicable for all children. This Major Work serves a significant function in pulling together literature demonstrating the different lessons that have been learned, pulling out common elements where possible, and helping to clarify the nature of the differences."Sage Library of Health and Social Welfare SeriesSAGE Publications Ltd1056Boxed Set978-1-4739-0394-4450

Media ImperialismOliver Boyd-Barrett27-Dec-14"How does control of media resources serve political and economic ends? What is the impact of media concentration and monopoly in the era of technology convergence, with not just traditional and 'new' media but also consumer electronics, telephony and computing industries? Revisting the classic idea of media imperialism, Oliver Boyd-Barrett presents a thorough retake for the 21st century, how structures of power and control still regulate our access to and consumption of the media. It's no longer just Disney and Dallas - it's also now Facebook and Google. Exploring how media corporations and platforms rework economic, business and social questions about the media landscape, the book explains: the historical context of the relationship between media and imperialism; contestation and collaboration among new media empires the passion for social justice that inspired the original theories of media and cultural imperialism, and how it has been embraced by a new generation. Digging deeply into the global landscape and emerging media markets to explore how media power works across transnational boundaries, this book gives a clear and sophisticated argument for why media imperialism still matters.""Redefining the Field \ Territorial and 'Free Trade"" Empire Building: War by Media-Sanctioned Pretext \ Classic Approaches to Media Imperialism: Three Models \ Colonial Communication Reframed \ Selling Pretexts for Imperial War \ Media and the Hybrid Pretexts for War in Libya and Syria \ Western Media Propaganda and Iran's Non-Existent Nukes \ Towards Digital Media Empires \ Other Media Empires \ Media Resisting Imperialism"SAGE Publications Ltd224Supplementary TextIC978-1-4462-6870-470978-1-4462-6871-123.99978-1-4739-1144-423.99
Understanding Media EthicsDavid Horner27-Dec-14"Our new media landscape of social networking, blogging, and interactivity has forever changed how media content is produced and distributed. Choices about how to gather, evaluate and publish information are ever more complex. This blurring of boundaries between general public values and the values of media professionals has made media ethics an essential issue for media professionals, but also demonstrates how it must be intrinsically part of the wider public conversation. This book teaches students to navigate ethical questions in a digital society and apply ethical concepts and guidelines to their own practice. Using case studies, judgement call boxes and further reading, Understanding Media Ethics clarifies the moral concepts in media contexts, and enables students to apply them to practical decision making through real-life worked examples. Covering key topics such as media freedoms, censorship, privacy, standards, taste, regulation, codes of practice and the ethics of representation, this is an essential guide for students in journalism, media, communication and public relations.""Relating Media Ethics to Media Studies \ Foundations: Methods in Media Ethics \ Truth, Representation and Narrative \ Solidarity, Sympathy and Neutrality \ Valuing Images: Morality in Pictures \ Liberty and Censorship: Politics, Religion and Sex \ Morality, Taste and Violence \ Regulating Media Content \ Rights and Persons: the Boundaries of Privacy \ Media Institutions: Morality and Markets \ Professionalism and Codes of Practice \ The New Media Landscape: Digital Media Ethics"SAGE Publications Ltd264Core TextE978-1-84920-787-460978-1-84920-788-119.99978-1-4739-1168-019.99

Strategic CommunicationFour-Volume SetRobert L Heath and Anne Gregory27-Dec-14"The roots of strategic communication lie in public relations, which has been a well-established concept in countries around the globe for more than 100 years. In the United States, for instance, this concept has been associated with publicity, promotion, and public policy battles. At times, especially in the early years of the 20th Century, it was seen as inseparable from propaganda and a means for promoting and protecting democracy. The field has developed immeasurably in the past few decades, but strategic communication is still a topic with strong, influential links to a variety of different disciplines, and increasingly relevant in both a professional and academic capacity. This Major Work captures the definitions, key developments and future of the field through a carefully-selected collection of seminal papers on the topic.

International Relations of ChinaEight-Volume Set"Shaun Breslin, Carla Freeman and Simon Shen"27-Sep-14"To say that the rise of China has captured the popular attention is something of an understatement. Hardly a day goes by without the publication of a new study that confidently predicts China's future - be that a focus on internal challenges and potential collapse, or China's rise to inevitable global dominance. The aim of this eight-volume collection is to provide, in a single resource, an overarching view of the totality of China's place in the world. In this new major work, the international team of editors have created a carefully balanced collection of seminal publications from leading scholars from both inside and outside of China, introduced by a newly-written chapter contextualizing the diverse perspectives on China's changing global role they represent.

International Relations of the Middle EastMorten Valbjorn and Fred Lawson31-Mar-15"The articles in this important and essential Major Work are framed by an introductory essay written by the editors, which helps to guide the reader through the volumes by providing further context and explaining the rationale behind the selection of literature. The work's esteemed editorial team has structured the volumes thematically, to allow for ease of navigation and clear understanding of the different key aspects: Volume One addresses the more fundamental and (meta)theoretical issues relating to the debate about the study of Middle East international relations Volume Two looks at the history of the field, addressing the debate about the emergence and evolution of the modern Middle East state system. Volume Three examines more recent debates, and primarily the issue about the role of identity politics in international relations. Volume Four engages with more classic and well-known issues from the general IR debate and explores to what extent assumptions and approaches from these debates are also useful in the study of Middle East international relations. This interdisciplinary resource brings together important works from the fields of international relations theory and Middle East studies - it promotes a stronger dialogue and cross-fertilisation between the two areas of study."SAGE Publications LtdBoxed Set978-1-4739-0274-9695625

Water SecurityFour-Volume Set"Anders Jägerskog, Ashok Swain and Joakim Öjendal"25-Oct-14"During the past two decades, environmental security and more specifically the security of water as a natural resource has come to the forefront of research and discussion. Many regions have experienced an increased water scarcity due to climatic variability and climate change, and the uncertain impacts of climate change to the supply has brought the issue to the centre of political debates. Indeed it has been raised by both the EU and the US national governments as a major issue of concern globally and has also been highlighted by the Security Council of the UN. The four volumes of this collection broadly outline the debate as it has developed, both from a policy as well as an academic perspective, bringing conceptual clarity as well as providing an account of how the water security discourse has emerged and developed.""VOLUME ONE: WATER SCARCITY EMERGING \ Securitizing WaterÚrsula Oswald Spring and Hans Günter Brauch \ Global Water Issues Confronting HumanityMalin Falkenmark \ The New Blue and Green Water Paradigm: Breaking New Ground for Water Resources Planning and ManagementMalin Falkenmark and Johan Rockström \ Transitions towards Adaptive Management of Water Facing Climate and Global ChangeClaudia Pahl-Wostl \ Global Water ResourcesI.

Environmental SecurityFour-Volume SetRichard Matthew29-Nov-14"The literature compiled in this four-volume collection explores the real and potential linkages between environmental change and security. Early formulations of environmental security date to antiquity, whilst contemporary formulations of environment-conflict-peace linkages grew in part from the environmental movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The ensuing flood of academic enquiry has been diverse and extensive, and the objective of this major work is to organize this important but polysemous literature in order to provide a comprehensive, historically rich and global overview of its key concepts, findings, contributors and methodologies.

Food SecurityFour-Volume SetMark Rosegrant16-Dec-14"Following years of complacency about food security and agriculture, world food prices began increasing in 2000 and currently remain well above long run trends. Research into this phenomenon reveals a highly complex and cross-disciplinary issue, which is fast becoming a defining feature of our times. Fuelled by a huge variety of interlinking factors, including rapid or improved economic growth -particularly in Asia and Africa - as well water scarcity, climate change, and the increasing demand for biofuels, the renewed urgency due to recent high food prices has focused much-needed attention on the challenges of food security. The articles in these volumes address the major challenges and debates around food security and the policies, investments, and technologies required to reduce or eliminate food insecurity. Organised thematically, each volume is introduced by an essay that synthesizes the topics covered therein, including the following: Volume One: Food Demand, Access and Utilization Volume Two: Producing Enough Food Volume Three: Markets, Value Chains, Trade and Macroeconomic Policy Volume Four: Food Policy for Food Security""VOLUME ONE -

The SAGE Handbook of European Foreign PolicyTwo-Volume Set"Aasne Kalland Aarstad, Edith Drieskens, Knud Erik Jorgensen, Katie Laatikainen and Ben Tonra"30-Jan-15"During the last two decades, the study of European foreign policy has experienced remarkable growth, presumably reflecting the more significant international role of the European Union. The Union has greatly expanded its policy portfolio and though empty symbolic politics still exists, the Union's international relations have become more substantial and its foreign policy more focused. European foreign policy has become a dynamic policy area, being adapted to changing challenges and environments, such as: the Arab Spring; new emerging economies/powers; the crisis of multilateralism; and much more. The SAGE Handbook of European Foreign Policy, two-volume set, is a major reference work for foreign policy programmes around the world. The Handbook is designed to be accessible to graduate and postgraduate students in a wide variety of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. Both volumes are structured to address areas of critical concern to scholars at the cutting edge of all major dimensions of foreign policy. The volumes are composed of original chapters written specifically to the following themes: - research traditions and historical experience - theoretical perspectives - EU actors - state actors - societal actors - the politics of European foreign policy - bilateral relations - relations with multilateral institutions - individual policies - transnational challenges.""Part I: Introduction \ Chapter 1: The Study of European Foreign Policy \ Chapter 2: FPA \ Chapter 3: The Geopolitics of Foreign Affairs \ Chapter 4: The Cold War and Post-Cold War Eras \ Part II: Introduction \ Chapter 5: Liberalism \ Chapter 6: Realism \ Chapter 7: Critical Theories \ Chapter 8: Constructivism \ Chapter 9: New Institutionalism \ Chapter 10: Theories of European Integration \ Chapter 11: Europeanization \ Chapter 12: Normative theories \ Part III: Introduction \ Chapter 13: Presidencies \ Chapter 14: The EEAS \ Chapter 15: The Governance of Defence \ Chapter 16: European Security Intelligence \ Chapter 17: The Foreign Economic Directorate (DG Trade), ECB \ Chapter 18: The European Parliament \ Chapter 19: Law and Courts \ Part IV: Introduction \ Chapter 20: Ministries of Foreign Affairs \ Chapter 21: Heads of State and Government \ Chapter 22: National Parliaments \ Chapter 23: Line Ministries \ Part V: Introduction \ Chapter 24: Public Opinion \ Chapter 25: News Media \ Chapter 26: Parties and Interest Groups \ Chapter 27: Think Tanks \ Chapter 28: Intellectuals \ Part VI: Introduction \ Chapter 29: Changing Policy Paradigms \ Chapter 30: Liberal Internationalism \ Chapter 31: Commercial Internationalism \ Chapter 32: Conservative Internationalism \ Chapter 33: Nationalism and Populism \ Chapter 34: The Use of Military Force and Economic Sanctions \ Part VII: Introduction \ Chapter 35: United States \ Chapter 36: Japan \ Chapter 37: Russia \ Chapter 38: China \ Chapter 39: India \ Chapter 40: Brazil \ Chapter 42 Middle East \ Chapter 43: ACP \ Part VIII: Introduction \ Chapter 44: United Nations \ Chapter 45: Economic Institutions \ Chapter 46: Security and Defence Institutions \ Chapter 47: Regional Institutions \ Chapter 48: In the Eyes of Others \ Part IX: Introduction \ Chapter 49: Security \ Chapter 50: Value Promotion \ Chapter 51: Trade \ Chapter 52: Enlargement \ Chapter 53: Neighbourhood \ Chapter 54: Environment and Climate \ Chapter 55: Development and Foreign Aid \ Chapter 56: Energy \ Chapter 57: Defence \ Chapter 58: Non-Proliferation Policies \ Part X: Introduction \ Chapter 59: The Balance of Power \ Chapter 60: Terrorism, Civil Wars and Uprisings \ Chapter 61: Global Markets \ Chapter 62 Environmental Challenges \ Chapter 63: The Multilateral System"SAGE Publications Ltd1200Handbook978-1-4462-7609-9245220
Public AdministrationSix-Volume SetB Guy Peters and Jon Pierre2-Dec-14"This new six- volume collection brings together a number of the major statements in the literature surrounding public administration and its role in government. Public administration is essential to the effective functioning of governments, as it involves not only implementing public policies but also providing policy advice to political leaders. While the recent emphasis on public management in the academic literature, as well as in the 'real world"" of governing, has tended to de-emphasize the significance of public administration, this collection examines the vital importance of the public bureaucracy in producing public services and in serving the public. Efficiency is not the only important value for public administration. Service, effectiveness, responsiveness, probity and accountability are equally as crucial. The readings in this major work cover the wide array of topics in public administration, blending classics in the field with more recent scholarship. Comparative in its approach, this collection is designed for both academics and practitioners across the world.

Hindu Spirituality and Virtue PoliticsVasanthi Srinivasan4-Mar-14"Hindu Spirituality and Virtue Politics analyzes the writings of four distinguished thinkers of India: S. Radhakrishnan, Vinoba Bhave, C. Rajagopalachari and A. K. Coomaraswamy. The author argues that there are two distinct visions of how Hindu spirituality is linked to modern liberal politics. The first and more popular vision draws from Vedanta ideals and moves toward a tight fit between spirituality and politics. The second and alternative vision, present in the writings of these four thinkers, is what this book analyzes in detail. Drawing upon myths, symbols and epics rather than the abstract theology of Vedanta, the book explores a subtler and more realistic fit between spirituality and politics. The book highlights that not all thinkers and statesmen who plumbed Hindu spirituality were fanatics or fundamentalists; some of them were inspired by the desire to theorize from indigenous sources."Preface and Acknowledgements \ Introduction \ Monistic Vedanta and Cosmic Evolution: S.

Perspectives on International Relations"Power, Institutions, and Ideas"Fourth EditionHenry R. Nau22-May-14"Henry R. Nau's bestselling book is admired for its even-handed presentation of realism, liberalism, constructivism, and critical theory - and for expertly applying those perspectives in every chapter, training students to think critically about the world's most urgent issues. This hallmark of the book hasn't changed; it highlights different causal perspectives from various levels of analysis to illuminate historical and current controversies in world affairs. But the overall length of the book has. With significantly briefer and more focused chapters, students can better grasp the causal logic and strong explanatory power of each of the perspectives as they explore the roots of major world events and approaches to critical issues.""Henry R.

But now, with significantly briefer and more focused chapters, students can better grasp the causal logic and strong explanatory power of each of the perspectives as they explore the roots of major world events and approaches to critical issues.""Introduction: Why We Disagree About International Relations \ The Role of Perspectives, Levels of Analysis and Casual Arrows \ The Role of History \ Contemporary Foreign Policy Disputes: the 9/11 Attacks \ The Role of Methods \ Is One Perspective or Method Best? \ The Role of Judgement \ The Role of Ethics and Morality \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Chapter 1: How to Think About International Relations: Perspectives and Levels of Analysis \ Prisoner's Dilemma \ The Realist Perspective \ The Liberal Perspective \ The Identity Perspective \ Critical Theory Perspectives \ Levels of Analysis \ Summary: Causes of World War I \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Part I: Historical Patterns \ Chapter 2: World War I: World on Fire \ Europe in 1914 \ Realist Explanations \ Liberal Explanations \ Identity Explanations \ Critical Theory Explanations \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Chapter 3: World War II: Why Did War Happen Again? \ Causes of Madness \ Liberal Accounts \ Realist Accounts \ Identity Matters \ Critical Theory Perspective \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Chapter 4: The Origins and End of the Cold War \ The Long Telegram \ Snapshot of the Cold War \ Realist Explanations of the Origins and End of the Cold War \ Identity Explanations of the Origins and End of the Cold War \ Liberal Explanations of the Origins and End of the Cold War \ Critical Theory Perspectives \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Part II: The Contemporary International System \ Chapter 5: Realist Aspects of Today's World: Dominance, Balance of Power, and State Institutions \ American Dominance \ Counterbalancing \ Domestic Power Struggles \ State Institutions and Foreign Policy \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Chapter 6: Liberal Aspects of Today's World: Collective Goods, International Negotiations, Institutions and Law \ Asia \ Economic Miracle \ Stable Governments/Unstable Region \ Sound Domestic Policies \ Latin America \ Sub-Saharan Africa \ Middle East and North America \ Environment \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Chapter 10: Critical Theory Perspectives on Global Inequality, Imperialism, and Injustice \ Mainstream Perspectives \ A Critical Theory Perspective \ Colonialism and Imperialism \ Dependency \ World Systems \ Multinational Corporations and Exploitation of Labor \ Marginalized Minorities: Global Injustice \ Persisting Global Inequality \ Summary \ Key Concepts \ Study Questions \ Conclusion: Applying Perspectives, Levels of Analysis and Causal Arrows: The Case of the Democratic Peace \ Evidence \ Explanations \ Summary \ Coda"CQ Press576E978-1-4522-4148-761
International ConflictLogic and EvidenceStephen L. Quackenbush31-Oct-14"International Conflict: Logic and Evidence is based on the premise that proper understanding of international conflict - a necessary prerequisite for achieving peace - can come only from logic and evidence, not from opinion and anecdote.

An Introduction to Civil Wars"Karl DeRouen, Jr."31-Dec-14"There are currently more than 30 active civil wars worldwide. An Introduction to Civil Wars provides a comprehensive overview of the civil wars that have taken place globally since World War II. The text opens with a discussion of the human and economic costs of civil war, and then systematically examines all aspects of civil wars: civil war patterns, types, and causes; the effect of natural resources; conflict duration, outcomes, and termination; peace agreements; counterinsurgency; terrorism; international intervention; and post-conflict issues. Author Karl DeRouen, Jr. draws on the latest empirical research and major theoretical debates and connects them to extended case studies of current conflict. Pedagogical features -- tables, figures, maps, photos, a comprehensive bibliography, lists of suggested readings, and an Appendix listing all civil wars since 1946 -- make the book an especially useful research tool for undergraduates and graduate students in political science and public policy.""Chapter 1: Introduction \ Theme of the Book \ The Basics of Civil War \ Civil War Onset \ The Duration of Civil Wars \ Outcome and Termination of Civil Wars \ Civil War Recurrence \ Civil War Patterns \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 2: Costs of Civil War \ Casualties \ Displacement \ Economic Costs \ Crime and Violence \ Education \ Environment \ Conflict Management Implications \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 3: Civil War Dynamics \ Civil War Types and Trends \ Civil War Tactics \ Conflict Management Implications \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 4: What Causes Civil War? \ Approaches to Civil War Onset \ Ethno-Religious Civil War \ Conflict Management Implications \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chaper 5: Natural Resources and Civil War \ Natural Resources and the Resource Curse \ Resources and Conflict \ Oil, Diamonds, Illicit Drugs, and Timber \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 6: The Termination of Civil War and Post-Conflict Issues \ Types and Trends in Civil War Outcomes \ Types of Peace Agreements \ Post-Conflict Issues \ Implications for Conflict Management \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 7: International Intervention \ Types of International Interventions \ Mediation \ Peace Agreements and Military Provisions \ Peacebuilding \ Humanitarian Law \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chapter 8: Terrorism and Civil War \ What is Terrorism? \ Incidence of Terrorism \ Tactics, Targets, and Means \ Terrorism During Civil War \ Causes of Terrorism \ Characteristics and Structure of Terrorist Groups \ Islam, Civil War, and Terrorism \ Conflict Termination and Terrorist Spoilers \ Case Studies \ Implications for Conflict Management \ Conclusion \ Suggested Reading \ Chaper 9: Conclusion \ Civil War Costs and Trends \ Overview of Conclusions and Policy Implications \ Final Words"CQ Press334978-1-4522-4432-734.99

Steiner30-Sep-14"In the post-9/11 era, federal homeland security professionals rely heavily on intelligence to perform their tasks in all mission areas - prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery. Homeland Security Intelligence is the first single-authored, comprehensive treatment of intelligence. It is geared toward the full range of homeland security practitioners, which includes hundreds of thousands of state and local government and private sector practitioners who are still exploring how intelligence can act as a force multiplier in helping them achieve their goals. With a focus on counterterrorism and cyber-security, author James E. Steiner provides a thorough and in-depth picture of why intelligence is so crucial to homeland security missions, who provides intelligence support to which homeland security customer, and how intelligence products differ depending on the customer's specific needs and duties."CQ Press312E978-1-4522-5866-938.99

Public Human Resource ManagementStrategies and Practices in the 21st CenturyR. Paul Battaglio Jr.30-Nov-14"Public Human Resource Management: Strategies and Practices in the 21st Century offers a novel take on public human resource management (PHRM) by providing practical guidance for practitioners operating in a drastically reformed HR environment. A comprehensive introduction to contemporary public HR management, this text incorporates analysis of the impact of the private sector-oriented reforms over the last few decades that have aimed to bring greater efficiency and productivity to the public sector. Reviewing foundational topics like recruitment and retention, pay and benefits, equal employment opportunity, and performance appraisal in light of five key reforms (decentralization, deregulation, declassification, privatization, and performance-based pay), author R. Paul Battaglio assesses how the traditional practice of public HR has changed - and not necessarily for the better. New material on human resource information systems, managing motivation in the public sector, and public HR management education is included - a topic rarely found in contemporary PHRM texts. Public Human Resource Management is an essential guide to public HR management and navigating the challenges and opportunities posed in the changing landscape of HR reform.""This book takes a contemporary approach that integrates discussion of reform, from decentralizing and deregulating decision-making to performance based pay, privatization, and an employment at will (EAW) system. It provides readers with a means of navigating the public human resource management landscape, whislt anchoring the topic within current research and scholarship.

By providing a consistent theoretical grounding and a clear focus on post-traditionalist thinking, the text gives students the background they need to analyze organizational settings and take effective action in the unique setting of contemporary governance.""Chapter 1: An Introduction and Orientation to Organization Theory \ The Complex World of Public Organizations: A Primer \ Sociology of Knowledge:Ways of Knowing about Organizations \ Influential theories and paradigms in the social sciences \ Levels of analysis \ The Book's Approach \ Organization and Content of the Book \ Diving In \ Part I: Theories of Organization \ Chapter 2: Classical Foundations: The Historical Context of a New Field of Study \ Max Weber - Authority and Bureaucracy \ Henri Fayol \ Frederick Winslow Taylor \ Luther Gulick \ Woodrow Wilson \ Other Voices \ Case 2.1 The President's Committee on Administrative Management (The Brownlow Committee and Report) \ Summary and Commentary \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 3: Behavioral Revolution \ Historical Context - Pre-War Hints and Post-War Proliferation \ Chester Barnard \ Elton Mayo, Fritz Rothlisburger and the Hawthorne Experiments \ Systems Theory \ Human Relations Theory \ Empirical Work - Kurt Lewin & Rensis Likert \ Conceptual Work - Abraham Maslow \ Douglas McGregor \ Chris Argyris \ Robert Merton \ Herbert Simon \ Other Voices: Dwight Waldo \ Case 3.1 The New York Department of Sanitation - Bureau of Motor Equipment \ Summary and Commentary \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 4: Life after Berger and Luckman: A Theoretically Diverse World \ Social and Historical Climate - Things get more complicated \ Economic Theories of Organization - Transaction Costs Economics and Agency Theory \ Network Theory \ Contingency Theory \ Chaos and Complexity Theories \ Structural-Functionalism & Structuration Theory \ Cognitive and Psychological Models - Sensemaking \ Case 4.1 The Tennessee Valley Authority: An examination of parallel theories \ Summary and Commentary \ Discussion Questions \ Part II: Issues, Strategies and Tactics \ Chapter 5: Managing Individual Behavior \ The Management Attribute \ Classical and Rationalist Approaches \ Case 5.1 Current Expressions: Classical and Rationalist Approaches at the Department of Homeland Security \ Hawthorne Reprised: From Rationalism to Behavioralism \ Case 5.2 Current Expressions: Behaviorist Alternatives \ Foreshadows of Postmodernism \ Conclusion \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 6: Understanding and Shaping Group Dynamics \ The Management Attribute \ Human and Group Relations Theories \ Case 6.1 Current Expressions : Control and Expanding the Area Under the Curve at St. John's Health System \ Systems Theories \ Case 6.2 Current Expressions : TQM and Local Government \ Organization Culture \ Case 6.3 Current Expressions: Organizational Culture and Management at Continental Airlines \ Foreshadows of Postmodernism \ Summary and Commentary \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 7: Affecting Organization Change \ The Management Attribute \ Key Theories of Change \ Business Process Reengineering \ Case 7.1 Current Expressions: Business Process Reengineering at the Jefferson County Alabama \ The Burke-Litwin Change Model \ Case 7.2 Current Expressions: Burke-Litwin in Texas Public Schools \ Organization Development \ Case 7.3 Current Expressions: OD in the Montana State University Research Library \ New Sciences and Organizations \ Chaos and Complexity theories \ Foreshadows of postmodernism \ Conclusions \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 8: Managing Organization - Environment Relations \ The Management Attribute \ Resource Dependence Theory \ Case 8.1 Current Expressions: Resource Dependence Theory at Brigham Young University \ Network Theory \ Case 8.2 Current Expressions: Networks and Municipal Housing in the Phoenix-Mesa Area \ Neo-Institutionalism \ Case 8.3 Current Expressions: Isomorphic and Governance Organizations \ Links to Post-traditionalism/Postmodernism \ Summary and Commentary \ Discussion Questions \ Part III: Towards Post-Positivist Organizations \ Chapter 9: Escaping the Void: History of Post-Positivism \ History and Genealogy \ Intellectual development \ Post-positive Concepts appearing in the social sciences \ Power-Knowledge \ Summary and Conclusions \ Chapter 10: Learning to Fly: Applying Post-Traditional Theory \ Organizational Activities \ Ethics \ Conclusions \ Chapter 11: Conclusion: This is the Beginning \ Top 10 Things You're Tired of Reading (but should remember anyway) \ Historical and Conceptual Review \ Organizations and Theory Competence \ Governance Redux"CQ Press401E978-1-60426-984-044.99

Latin American Political CulturePublic Opinion and DemocracyJohn A. Booth and Patricia Bayer Richard31-Jan-15"Latin American Political Culture: Public Opinion and Democracy presents a genuinely pan-Latin American examination of the region's contemporary political culture. This is the only book to extensively investigate the attitudes and behaviors of Latin Americans based on the Latin American Public Opinion Project's (LAPOP) AmericasBarometer surveys. Through its analysis of data on eighteen countries, the book systematically and comparatively evaluates norms, attitudes, and opinions concerning democracy and its consolidation. Beginning with an introduction of political culture and its scholarship, it examines democratic and authoritarian norms, explores how citizens relate to the political world, and considers implications for democratic stability. It then examines key behavioral outcomes in politics, such as in attitudes toward gays and fear of crime, and how political culture changes over time. Case studies highlight how these factors come together in particular cases. The findings reveal a complex Latin America with distinct political cultures. This book joins rigorous analysis with clear graphic presentation and extensive examples. Readers learn about public opinion research, engage with further questions for analysis, and have access to data, an expansive bibliography, and links to appendices.""Part I: Introduction \ Chapter 1: Latin American Political Culture and Democracy: Introduction \ What is Political Culture?

Social Psychology of EmotionDarren Ellis and Ian Tucker27-Feb-15"The study of emotion tends to breach traditional academic boundaries and binary linguistics. It requires multi-modal perspectives and the suspension of dualistic conventions to appreciate its complexity. This book analyses historical, philosophical, psychological, biological, sociological, post-structural, and technological perspectives of emotion that Ellis argues are important for a viable social psychology of emotion. It begins with early ancient philosophical conceptualisations of pathos and ends with analytical discussions of the transmission of affect which permeate the digital revolution."Introduction \ Two Ancient Theories of Emotion \ Medievil Theologies and Emotion \ Enlightenment Philosophies of Emotion \ The History and Development of 20th Century Psychology of Emotion \ Group Psychology and Emotion \ Biological Understandings of Emotion \ Sociological Understandings of Emotion \ Emotion Talk: Theories and Analysis \ Affect Theory: Post-Structuralist Accounts \ Digital EmotionSAGE Publications Ltd208Supplementary TextE978-1-4462-5478-375978-1-4462-5479-024.99978-1-4739-1184-024.99

EmotionAnnett Schirmer30-Sep-14"Emotion is a comprehensive text that integrates traditional psychological theories and cutting-edge neuroscience research to explain the nature and role of emotions in human functioning. Written in an engaging style, the book explores emotions at the behavioral, physiological, mental, and neurofunctional (i.e., chemical, metabolic, and structural) levels, and examines each in a broad context, touching on different theoretical perspectives, regulatory processes, development, and culture, among others. Providing greater insight and depth than existing texts, the book offers a holistic view of the field, giving students a broader understanding of the mechanisms underlying emotions and enabling them to appreciate the role emotions play in their lives. In dedicated chapters, the text covers past and current theories of emotion, individual emotions and their bodily representation, the role of emotions for behavior and cognition, as well as interindividual differences.""Emotion provides a holistic and conceptual view of the field to give students a broader understanding of the mechanisms underlying emotions.

Quantitative PsychologyFive-Volume SetJeremy Miles and Brian Stucky9-Dec-14"Quantitative psychology is a branch of psychology developed using certain methods and approaches which are designed to answer empirical questions, such as the development of measurement models and factor analysis. While quantitative psychology is often associated with the use of statistical models and psychological measurement research methods, this five volume set draws together the key conceptual and methodological techniques and addresses each research question at length. Each volume is accompanied by an introduction which contextualises the subject area, giving an understanding of established theories and how they are continuing to develop in one of the most fundamental and broadly researched psychological fields. These volumes are an excellent resource for academics and scholars who will benefit from the framing provided by the editorial introduction and overview, and will also appeal to advanced students and professionals studying or using quantitative psychological methods in their research.

Approaches to FieldworkFour-Volume SetSam Hillyard27-Sep-14"These four volumes map how the fieldwork approach to research has developed and matured over the past decades. Following on from the success of 2004's major work, Fieldwork (ed. Christopher Pole), the aim of this collection is to acknowledge the legacy and the traditions from which fieldwork emerged, but moreover to critically discuss how best fieldwork can move look to engage with the lives as they are now lived. Though the generic task of fieldwork remains as it was - the challenge to 'get inside' and seek understanding about the social world - the literature included in these volumes also engages with the whys, whats and hows of using 'new' digital data, placing current debates in context. The seminal articles included in this collection are further discussed and contextualised through the editor's introduction, which outlines the rationale for selection and provides an illuminating overview of the field.

Fieldwork in South Asia"Memories, Moments, and Experiences"Sarit K Chaudhuri and Sucheta Sen Chaudhuri30-Apr-14"Fieldwork in South Asia is a valuable attempt to listen and learn from the memories and significant moments of fieldwork done by anthropologists, sociologists, and even historians from South Asia. The essays lead towards a deeper understanding of concerns of fieldwork located in various field sites across South Asia without assuming or applying fixed normative rules for the whole region. In the process, the volume allows the reader to have an option to locate or relocate ethnographic or other forms of texts in the context of growing methodological contours and dilemmas in the social science.

Thinking QualitativelyMethods of MindJohnny Saldaña30-Nov-14"Thinking Qualitatively: Methods of Mind boldly pursues the challenge to teach researchers not just how to collect and analyze data but how to actively think about them. Nine modules of mental processing for the qualitative researcher are profiled: thinking analytically, realistically, symbolically, ethically, multidisciplinarily, artistically, summarily, interpretively, and narratively. The book also explores how qualitative research designs, data collection, data analyses, and write-ups can be enriched through over sixty different lenses, filters, and angles on social life. Thinking Qualitatively first explains the often used but sometimes misused terms for inquiry, followed by a review of traditional analytic basics. The book then ventures into more evocative and multidimensional ways to examine the complex patterns of daily living. Research genres such as grounded theory, phenomenology, ethnography, case study, narrative inquiry, mixed methods, and arts based research in education, the social sciences, and health care are addressed. Recent research is also cited on how the brain works and how cognitive methods harmonize with the goals of qualitative inquiry. Written in Saldaña's elegant and accessible style, Thinking Qualitatively reveals how the researcher's mind thinks heuristically to transcend the descriptive and develop ""highdeep"" insights about the human condition.""Teaching researchers not just how to collect and analyze data but how to actively think about them, nine modules of mental processing for the qualitative researcher are profiled: thinking analytically; realistically; symbolically; ethically; multidisciplinarily; artistically; summarily; interpretively; and narratively.

Social Theory for TodayMaking Sense of Social WorldsAlex Law27-Dec-14"Social Theory for Today guides students through the key thinkers and key ideas of the contemporary social world. The book asks what continuing use do theories of the Enlightenment, classical German sociology, Marxism and phenomenology have for making sense of our social world. Drawing on both on classical and contemporary sources, this book is both accessible and meaningful for students working to grasp a firm understanding of the competing perspectives in social theory. The book is organized around two contrasting conceptions of common sense social worlds. On one side, common sense is understood as a precondition of solidarity and social action. Here social theory is viewed as continuous with and an extension of the social world, an 'umbilical cord' that can never be cut but simply needs to be more systematically ordered and controlled (realism, positivism, Weber, empiricism, phenomenology, social constructionism, feminism). On the other side, common sense is reproached as a constraint on reason and autonomy. Here, sociology strives for a discontinuous 'break' with the spontaneously self-evident truths and pre-judgments of ordinary social worlds (skepticism, Durkheim, Simmel, structuralism, Marxism, Critical Theory, Bourdieu). Social Theory for Today is a must read for upper level undergraduate and graduate sociology students looking for a vibrant and extended understanding of social theory in today's society.""Introduction: The Narcissism of Minor Differences \ Social Theory and Crisis \ Positivist Turn: Auguste Comte \ Marx's Turn \ Nietzsche's Turn: Max Weber and Georg Simmel \ Ideological Turn: Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs \ Reflexive Turn: Otto Neurath and Empirical Sociology \ Modernist Turn: Walter Benjamin and Siegfried Kracauer \ Critical Turn: The Frankfurt School \ Negative Turn: Horkheimer, Adorno and Habermas \ Quotidian Turn: Henri Lefebvre \ Corporeal Turn: Maurice Merleau-Ponty \ Pragmatic Turn: Social theory in the US \ Cultural Turn: Social Theory in France and Britain \ Relational Turn: Norbert Elias and Pierre Bourdieu \ Conclusion"SAGE Publications Ltd342Core TextE978-1-4462-0901-185978-1-4462-0902-828.99978-1-4739-1113-028.99

Critical Social TheoryCraig Browne16-Jan-15"An accomplished, sophisticated and up-to-date account of the state of critical social theory today. Craig Browne explores the key concepts in critical theory (like critique, ideology, and alienation), and crucially, goes on to relate them to major contemporary developments such as globalisation, social conflict and neo-liberal capitalism. Critical theory here is not solely the work of Adorno, Horkheimer, Marcuse and Habermas. The book begins with the Frankfurt School but uses this as a base to then explore more contemporary figures such as Nancy Fraser, Axel Honneth, Luc Boltanski, Cornelius Castoriadis, Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens, Pierre Bourdieu and Hannah Arendt. A survey of critical social theory for our times, this is an essential guide for students wishing to grasp a critical understanding of social theory in the modern world.""Introduction \ A New Nexus of Social Change? \ System Integration and Social Disintegration \ From the Critique of Objectification to a New Conception of Alienation \ Postmodernism, Ideology and Rationality \ The End of Immanent Critique? \ Hope, Critique and Utopia \ Civil Solidarity and Social Struggles \ Positive Liberty and Social Justice \ Conclusion"SAGE Publications Ltd256Supplementary Text978-1-4462-4692-475978-1-4462-4693-124.99978-1-4739-1180-224.99

Identity and CapitalismMarie Moran27-Dec-14"This book explores the relationship between the contemporary importance of identity and the political economy of capitalism. It goes beyond prevailing theories of the 'post-industrial', 'network' or 'risk' society, which identify an emphasis on identity as characteristic of late modern societies but fail to explain how identity relates to neoliberal capitalism. Marie Moran offers a new perspective on the standard story about the emergence of identity politics, arguing, perhaps surprisingly, that the category of identity became prominent only recently. Against the common assumption that identity 'always mattered', she shows that what we now think of routinely as 'personal identity' actually only emerged with the explosion of consumption in the late-twentieth century. She also makes the case that what we now think of as different social and political 'identities' only came to be framed as such with the emergence of identity politics, new social movements and the politics of multiculturalism from the 1960s and 1970s. The book directly addresses the connections between the political economy of contemporary capitalism and the new social, cultural and political formations that are articulated via the idea of identity."Introduction \ Chapter 1.

The Social Thought of Erving GoffmanMichael Hviid Jacobsen and Soren Kristiansen31-Dec-14"Part of the SAGE Social Thinker series, this book serves as a concise and inviting introduction to the life and works of Erving Goffman, one of the most prominent social theorists in postwar sociology. Goffman's ideas continue to influence scholars in various fields and have also attracted many readers outside conventional academia. Goffman's overall research agenda was the exploration of what he termed the interaction order - that is, the micro social order that regulates the co-mingling of people in each other's immediate presence. He coined several new concepts (face-work, impression management, role distance, civil inattention, etc.) with which to grasp and understand the complexities and basic social restructuring of everyday life, many of which are now part of sociology's standard vocabulary.""Introduction \ Chapter 1: The Life and Times of Erving Goffman \ Chapter 2: Reading Goffman 'Backwards' \ Chapter 3: Goffman's 'Mixed Methods' \ Chapter 4: Goffman's Sociology of Everyday Life Interaction \ Chapter 5: Goffman's Sociology of Deviance \ Chapter 6: Goffman and the Self \ Chapter 7: Goffman on Frames, Genderisms and Talk \ Chapter 8: Reading Goffman 'Forwards' \ Chapter 9: The Legacy of Erving Goffman \ Chapter 10: Further Readings \ Glossary"Social Thinkers Series"SAGE Publications, Inc"248978-1-4129-9803-115.99

Second ThoughtsSociology Challenges Conventional WisdomSixth EditionJanet M. Ruane and Karen A. Cerulo31-Oct-14"Co-authored by Karen A. Cerulo, the Eastern Sociological Society's Robin L.

Atkinson provides guidance on the appropriate objects of the ethnographic gaze, insisting on ethnographic work that is faithful to the intrinsic and complex organization of everyday life.

Youth and GenerationRethinking change and inequality in the lives of young peopleDan Woodman and Johanna Wyn27-Dec-14"""Woodman and Wyn have produced a student text that offers conceptual clarity and real depth on debates in youth studies. The authors skilfully guide us through the main sociological theories on young people and furnish us with sophisticated critiques from which to rethink youth and generation in the contemporary moment."" - Professor Anoop Nayak, Newcastle University The promise of youth studies is not in simply showing that class, gender and race continue to influence life chances, but to show how they shape young lives today. Dan Woodman and Johanna Wyn argue that understanding new forms of inequality in a context of increasing social change is a central challenge for youth researchers. Youth and Generation sets an agenda for youth studies building on the concepts of 'social generation' and 'individualisation' to suggest a framework for thinking about change and inequality in young lives in the emerging Asian Century.""Chapter 1: Continuity and Change \ Individualisation \ Generation \ New Life Patterns \ Structure of the Book \ Chapter 2: Global Change and Inequality \ Education, Urbanisation and Employment \ Inequality \ Australia in a Changing World \ The Failure of the Neoliberal Promise \ Theory in Youth Studies \ Conclusion \ Chapter 3: Individualisation \ Understanding Changing Patterns \ Bringing Zombie Categories Back to Life \ The Creation of the Choice Biography \ Holding Lives Together \ Researching the Making of Inequality in New Times \ Conclusion \ Chapter 4: Generations \ The Emergence and Marginalisation of the Sociology of Generations \ What is a Generation? \ Intergenerational Relationships \ When does a Generation Emerge? \ Conclusion \ Chapter 5: Transitions \ Youth Transitions and Development \ Transition Regimes and the Making of a Generations \ Research and Reflexivity \ Conclusion \ Chapter 6: Cultures \ Concepts of Subculture \ Post-subcultures \ Continuity and Change in Cultures Research \ Generational Change, Cultures and Divisions \ Blurring Boundaries \ Conclusion \ Chapter 7: Time \ Social Change and Synchronisation 119 \ Sociality and the Digital Revolution \ Time, Youth Cultures and Inequality \ The Present, Past and Future \ Conclusion \ Chapter 8: Place \ The Invisibility of Place \ Theorising Young People and Place \ Mobilities, Cultures and Place \ Making Place Visible \ Place and Global Generations \ Young People Making a Place for Themselves \ Conclusion \ Chapter 9: Conclusion \ Generations, Transitions, Cultures \ Time, Place and the Future"SAGE Publications Ltd224Supplementary TextE978-1-4462-5904-775978-1-4462-5905-424.99978-1-4739-1112-324.99

Sociological Theory in the Classical EraText and ReadingsThird EditionLaura Desfor Edles and Scott Appelrouth31-Jan-15"Trained at UCLA and at NYU respectively, Laura Desfor Edles and Scott Appelrouth were frustrated by their inability to find a sociological theory text that could inspire enthusiasm in undergraduate students while providing them with analytical tools for understanding theory and exposing them to original writings from pivotal theorists. They developed this widely used text/reader to fill that need. Sociological Theory in the Classical Era introduces students to original major writings from sociology's key classical theorists. It also provides a thorough framework for understanding these challenging readings. For each theorist, the authors give a biographical sketch, discuss intellectual influences and core ideas, and offer contemporary examples and applications of those ideas. Introductions to every reading provide additional background on their structure and significance. This book also makes frequent use of photos, diagrams, tables, and charts to help illustrate important concepts."Chpater 1: Introduction \ WHAT is Sociological Theory? \ WHY Read Original Works? \ WHO are Sociology's Core Theorists? \ HOW Can We Navigate Sociological Theory? \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 2: Karl Marx (1818 - 1883) \ A Biographical Sketch \ Intellectual Influences and Core Ideas \ Marx's Theoretical Orientation \ Readings \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 3: Émile Durkheim (1858-1917) \ A Biographical Sketch \ Intellectual Influences and Core Ideas \ Durkheim's Theoretical Orientation \ Readings \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 4: Mac Weber (1864 - 1920) \ A Biographical Sketch \ Intellectual Influences and Core Ideas \ Weber's Theoretical Orientation \ Readings \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 5: Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 - 1935) \ A Biographical Sketch \ Intellectual Influences and Core Ideas \ Gilman's Theoretical Orientation \ Readings \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 6: Georg Simmel (1858 - 1918) \ A Biographical Sketch \ Intellectual Influences and Core Ideas \ Simmel's Theoretical Orientation \ Readings \ Discussion Questions \ Chapter 7: W.
