Looking Upwards: Stars in Ancient and Medieval Cultures

Author: Piero Boitani (Sapienza University of Rome, Professor of Comparative Literature, Roma, Italy)

Series: Contemporary Cultural Studies (Series Editor, Joseph J. Pilotta, Algis Mickunas, John W. Murphy, The Ohio State University)

Publication Date: 2017 - 4th Quarter

Book Description:
This book recounts the exciting tale of human beings’ relationship with the stars. It covers that tale from prehistory and antiquity to the Middle Ages, going as far as the year 1400 CE, the year of Geoffrey Chaucer’s death in England. This volume is not an astronomy textbook, nor a history of astronomy. It is a book that intends to explore, or present, the image of the stars that, throughout history, humanity constructed for itself: the image, that is, as it was transmitted through literature, the visual arts, and music. In doing so, it was of course impossible to avoid those frequent and fruitful moments when the arts encountered science, philosophy, and religion. Looking Upwards is the result of this constant historical interweaving.

The lodestar for this book was the search for cosmic poetry, for beauty, and for the sublime – for the enthusiasm and the terror that writers, painters, and composers of all ages and continents have directed towards the stars. From the dawn of human civilization to the end of the fourteenth century, Looking Upwards traces the human passion for the cosmos – in chronological order and West to East geographic movement – from Paleolithic caves to Egyptian pyramids, in Ur of the Chaldees (from where Abraham came), in classical Greece and Rome, from medieval Europe to Persia, India, China and Japan. Domes of Heaven in Constantinople and Ravenna, in Jerusalem and Granada, star vaults and mosaics, frescoes and stone engravings appear all over the planet. The music of the spheres resonates from Pythagoras to Shakespeare, from the songs of Native Americans to those of the Australian Aborigines. Homer’s poetry influences Virgil, Boethius inspires Dante, the Bible and Arabic literature are reflected in the work of Shelomoh Ibn Gabirol, ‘Omar Khayyâm and Hâfez find a new life in Edward Fitzgerald and Goethe, the Râmâyana reverberates in Kâlidâsa, and Du Fu finds companionship in Japanese haikus. Looking Upwards is a book of world literature, because people all over the world can sing, with the Abenaki of North America: We Are the Stars Who Sing.

Navigating the Storms of Life: Critical Lessons for Christian and Non-Christian Social Workers

Author: Samson Chama (PhD., MSW, Associate Professor, Department of Social Work, Psychology and Counseling, Alabama A & M University, Normal Alabama , USA)

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status
Religion and Society

Publication Date: 2017 - 1st Quarter

Book Description:
In life, people face challenges and storms that come in different forms and fashions. These personal storms vary in scope, size and gravity, and some have short term effects whereas others may have long term effects. Whatever the magnitude of a storm, perhaps the most critical consideration at the end of the day is not so much the challenges or storms themselves, but rather how people respond to them. In this era of social, economic and political uncertainty, it is important for human service professionals such as social workers to gain a deeper understanding of different types of challenges that may impact the people they assist. Furthermore, it is important for them to attain a good grasp and understanding of how to address and manage these storms effectively. They may manage them on their own behalf or with their clients. A lack of understanding of these storms may lead to ineffective and misplaced interventions which do not offer any hope for the future. When people facing storms are given misplaced assistance or support, both the social worker and the client lose. This book examines the subject of storms from a Christian perspective and uses a real life experience of loss to highlight important lessons for both Christian and non-Christian social workers. It incorporates in each chapter vivid and thoughtful examples that illustrate storms, their impact on people and implications for recovery. Each chapter is coupled within a social worker’s perspective that highlights useful lessons for social work practice. The chapters also provide the reader with reflective questions that engage the readers by giving them an opportunity to explore their own lives, as well as discover life challenges they might have faced. The book not only sheds light on storms and challenges, but provides a relevant nexus of hope, faith and courage. This is exemplified in the chapters toward the end of the book that offer hope for now and for the hereafter. This is crucial in that the chapters do not leave the reader hanging and wondering what is next, but rather cultivate in the reader timely confidence, purpose for survival and a bigger perspective. This book is a hope builder, a confidence giver and a purpose provider for those struggling with challenges and personal storms in their lives. It provides readers with a new lens for the present and beyond, a lens for overcoming any storm. Individuals of all backgrounds including Christian and non-Christian social workers will gain from this book. It will not only strengthen their resolve for life, but will allow them the tenacity to look forward to a life after this. It is a reminder that, despite the storms and no matter how much people suffer, God is orchestrating the story. He is in control, He knows what He is doing, and at the end of the day it’s about Him.

Restorative and Transitional Justice: Perspectives, Progress and Considerations for the Future

Editor: Jessica Evans

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

Publication Date: 2017 - 1st Quarter

Book Description:
The concept of justice covers a broad spectrum of human existential issues, and is defined according to established relationships that always put the human person as reference. Restorative justice and transitional justice fall into the wide range of attempts to explain and address injustices by seeking accountability, finding adequate sanctions that are proportionate to harm, rehabilitating the offenders, and restoring victims or even reaching an informal negotiated settlement. The authors of this book provide new research in the study of restorative and transitional justice.

Informatics in Social Work Practice: Technology within the Field

Author: Susan E. Elswick (Department of Social Work, University of Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA)

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

Publication Date: 2017 - 1st Quarter

Book Description:
Technology and informatics in the field of applied social work is at the cusp of development within the profession. For many years, other applied fields such as medicine and nursing have been implementing and benefiting from the use of technology in practice. Technology has improved outcomes for researchers, practitioners, and consumers within the field of medicine and nursing. Although lagging behind in the technology trend, social work practitioners are learning the importance of these systems within their daily applied practices. Technology can assist in bridging the gap between consumer needs and clinical experts in the field. Imagine a practice in which real-time data is captured regarding the client’s needs and target behaviors across multiple environments; clinician prompts are provided when a client has thoughts of harm; evidence-based behavioral interventions are provided even in the absence of the direct clinician in order to assist the client with skill generalization; and where an interdisciplinary team of professionals can provide a wraparound approach to service delivery in lieu of that clinician working individually as if in a silo. The ability to make clinical decisions that are data informed for all clients should be at the forefront of social work practices. This book will assist clinicians with understanding the importance of informatics in social work practice and identifying ways in which to embed these technological methods into current practices.

Fighting for a Gender[ed] Identity: An Ethnographic Examination of White Collar Boxers

Author: Travis D. Satterlund (Research Analyst, Center for Program Design and Evaluation (CPDE), Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, United States of America)

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

Publication Date: 2017 - 1st Quarter

Book Description:
Fighting for a Gender[ed] Identity is an ethnographic exploration into the increasingly popular world of “white collar” boxing. Travis Satterlund, a sociologist, spent over a year and a half researching a boxing gym and its participants, toiling alongside gym members, learning the boxing trade, sweating and enjoying the doses of macho from banging heads with fellow pugilists. He learned how to throw a variety of punch combinations; how to defend and parry punches; how to “take” a punch; he learned of the hard work, commitment, and dedication necessary to become even an average boxer; and, most importantly, he learned about the culture of KO Gym and its members. While expecting to find a gym filled with young, working-class, non-white men—like he saw on television and in movies—he was surprised when he initially arrived at KO Gym. Though there were indeed diverse, young men at the gym who trained seriously for competitions, the place was also filled with white men—both young and middle-aged—who were also training. Moreover, there were a couple of women training, and the two trainers were white, one of whom was a woman. This countered his expectations and piqued his interest. Satterlund wanted to learn about these mostly white boxers that he would later learn were almost entirely middle to upper middle-class. What brought them to the gym? What did they get out of it? Sociologically, what was happening?
This book reveals that gym members used the cultural meanings associated with boxing as resources to construct boxing as an activity from which they could derive gendered identity rewards. As such, Satterlund shows how authenticity of the gym was socially constructed to meet these identity rewards and also to resolve these dilemmas. Moreover, while most of the men at the gym had secure middle-class jobs, these jobs were not the primary basis for their feelings of self-worth, especially in relation to their identity as “men.” In essence, then, the boxing gym offered a means for the men to compensate for their inability to signify power, control, and toughness in their professional lives. Women also sought identity rewards from boxing and had reasons to want to signify masculine qualities. For them, too, boxing was a way to signify agency and strength. Yet, they also faced dilemmas in seeking to distance themselves from other “feminine” women without being viewed as too masculine. At the same time, however, social class complicated matters considerably, creating other issues for both the men and the women. Satterlund thus uses the context of KO Gym and its membership to analyze the many nuances of these gender identity-related issues, focusing not only on how social class both disrupts and facilitates how a gendered space is created, but how gender inequalities are created, maintained and reproduced in white collar boxing.

Rethinking Aging: Foucault, Victims and Death

Author: Jason L. Powell (University of Chester, UK)

Series: Social Perspectives in the 21st Century (Series Editor: Jason L. Powell, Associate Dean of Faculty, Coventry University, UK)

Publication Date: 2017 - 2nd Quarter

Book Description:
This authentic book explores the concept of aging and its relationship to victimization and death in contemporary culture. Healthcare and welfare have emerged as key vehicles used to legitimize and position the identities that older people adopt in contemporary modernity. Both contain continually changing technologies that function to mediate relations between older people and the State. Medico-technical policies, victimization policies and care management discourses have been presented as adding choice and reducing limitations associated with adult aging. However, they also represent an increase in professional control that can be exerted on lifestyles in older ages and thus, the wider social meanings associated with that part of life. This book presents an original theoretical analysis based on a critical interpretation of the work of Michel Foucault and the application of aging. The book identifies the interrelationship between health professions and older people in terms of power, surveillance and normalization. The book highlights how and why older people are the subjects of legitimizing professional gazes through the dark side of modernity: being managed, being victims, being abused and existential questions of death are critically examined with clear links to policy, theory and practice.

Civic Engagement: Perspectives, Roles and Impacts

Editor: Gloria M. Brooks

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

Publication Date: 2017 - 1st Quarter

Book Description:
Civic engagement refers to participating in activities which make a difference in the civic life of citizens in communities. These activities are meant to promote the quality of life in a community, either through participation in any activity or event that involves political subject matter, or through non-political involvement in community associations such as clubs, religious bodies, work organizations and unions, and informal happenings such as sports leagues. Research on civic engagement and its causes can be divided into two broad categories, either the individual-level explanations that emphasize the social psychological and economic factors that affect individual attitudes and behaviors, or the structure-level explanations that place emphasis on macro structures such as societal values, norms and material forces. This book reviews several perspectives on civic engagement, as well as its roles and impacts in society.

Violence in Schools, Colleges and Universities

Authors: Woodrow W. Clark II and R. Laurence Kuhn (Qualitative Economist, Founder and Managing Director, Clark Strategic Partners, Beverly Hills, CA, USA)

Series: Education in America: Issues, Analyses, Policies and Programs

Publication Date: 2017 - 4th Quarter

Book Description:
Three decades ago this year (2017), Woodrow W. Clark completed his PhD thesis at the University of California, Berkeley on Violence in Public Schools. Back then, it was a big topic that gained a lot of attention. Clark spent a decade after that in the media doing documentaries on this topic and other social issues, such as sexual harassment, healthcare and baby boomers, along with a dramatic project on what happened to the American Dream based on the demise of the automotive industry in Detroit. All of these topics are relevant and important today.

Now, violence in public schools has been expanded from K-12 to colleges and universities due to the increasing amount of violence at that level.

Hence, Clark and Kuhn have written a book that looks at the problem of school violence from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective. A key issue then and now is that violence in any institution such as factories, businesses, and even law firms can be seen as coming from people associated with them and from within them. Hence, most violence in schools is a result of people who are students and even former faculty.

The problem is also not just physical violence, but also the psychological violence that the perpetrator had experienced while in their educational environment.

Once readers realize the reasons behind violence are psychological, the history of violence can be seen as directly connected to the economic priorities that education takes. Most of the money in education goes to the top performers in academics and sports who represent only 10% of the student and staff population. This tactic and focus ignores the other 90%. Hence, when people need help in their studies or even extracurricular activities, there are few resources. The result is often bullying and discrimination.

Though the solutions to violence absolutely include security and psychological support, it is the financial resources that are spread out among all levels of students and staff that prove most effective. New programs that address race, sex and career support are needed, as well as security within the institutions themselves. This book provides many cases/examples of what needs to be done and what can be done now to prevent violence tomorrow.

Human Error: Preventive Measures, Analysis and Improvement Strategies

Editor: Gregory Scott

Series: Safety and Risk in Society

Publication Date: 2017 - 2nd Quarter

Book Description:
Accidents happen because of the reduction in adaptable capabilities or because inadaptability takes over. Inadaptability is the failure to adapt according to changed circumstances, settings or time. The occurrence of human errors in manual assembly lines can be affected by factors, such as workplace condition, work environment, equipment and demographics factors. Another topic explored in this book is forensic science which is concerned with the application of scientific knowledge to legal problem resolution. It is a vital tool in any legal proceeding, because it helps the judge and the jury to understand scientific truth. Also, human error in medicine is a major threat to patient safety. Therefore, it is vital to reveal factors that cause performance deficits in medical work environments. On the basis of the human error sources identified, human factors training programs can be designed as one possible approach to preventing accidents and increasing safety. Human error has been cited as a common cause in disasters and accidents in diverse high-risk industries and in healthcare. This book focuses on organizational, social and individual causes for the development of conditions behind human errors.

Intercultural Communication: Strategies, Challenges and Research

Editor: Brenda Griffin

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

Publication Date: 2017 - 2nd Quarter

Book Description:
This book explores the issues related to the intercultural competence of future teachers and their readiness to work with children in a multicultural environment. An increasingly large number of Chinese multinational corporations (MNCs) have expanded their presence in global markets at high speed and on a large scale. In this book, is provided an example of the Chinese pattern of global expansion by investigating a specific successful marketing effort of a MNC headquartered in the People’s Republic China (PRC). It also looks at the problems of intercultural communication of the Gypsy ethnic group in Transcarpathia. It attends to the issues of rhythm and the aesthetic experience in the late works of Edward Hall, the founder of the discipline intercultural communication (IC), and in the ideas of John Dewey, especially in his Art as Experience. The feminization of migration opens new spaces of communication, loosens the sexual division of labor, and transforms gender roles and models. Different forms of discrimination have different effects on individual and collective identities. This book provides the elements of discussion needed for the development of public policies to protect Latin American women rights making visible gender issues in the context of the international political agenda.

Advances in Sociology Research. Volume 24

Editor: Jared A. Jaworski

Series: Advances in Sociology Research

Publication Date: 2017 - 4th Quarter

Book Description:
In this volume of Advances in Sociology Research. Volume 24, the consequences of entrapment in insecure, low-status/low wage jobs of migrants and how these affect their decision to return to their origin countries via the AVRR Program during the economic crisis in Greece are examined using results from in-depth interviews. The authors suggest that regardless of the socioeconomic conditions in their origin country, workers are negatively impacted due to prolonged stay and isolation in jobs with low or zero social and labor mobility, thus promoting their entrapment. Additionally, ethnic, racial and gender division of labor alienates workers from primary and secondary solidarity groups and ties related to their origin county. In a different study, 475,760 fifteen-year-olds in 65 countries were analyzed, showing that in countries with greater inequality of family income or school inequalities, students learned less mathematics. This study offers evidence that family and school inequalities operate in part through fewer educational resources both inside and outside school. This volume also includes a study on cyberbullying, utilizing cross-sectional, longitudinal, cross-sequential, mixed-methods, qualitative, and quantitative research designs. Research is drawn from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, media and communication studies, education, social work, and computer science, ending with recommendations for ending cyberbullying and a demand that it be considered a global concern. Later, a chapter in included on the health-illness nexus and people´s beliefs about this. The authors carried out 49 interviews in a group of TB patients, or with their families in the case of deceased patients, trying to understand their beliefs about their lives and whether or not their behavior changed with the TB or diabetes diagnosis. Authors also provide an extensive systematic literature review of ISI Web of Science (WoS), Scopus, MEDLINE/PubMed, Google Scholar, DOAJ, EbscoHOST, Scirus, Science Direct, the Cochrane Library and ProQuestusing using the following key words: “fasting”, “Ramadan”, “Islam”, and “immunity” in order to ascertain the impact of Ramadan fasting on the immune system. The problem of antisocial behavior (ASB) is also investigated. Drawing from the findings of a structured questionnaire survey on owner-occupiers of private multi-owned housing developments in Hong Kong, the authors aim to analyze the relationship between environmental design of a housing community and residents’ ASB perceptions. The compilation ends with a chapter social constructionism, mainly discussing the aim of intervention and the empowerment of users. The authors maintain that “it is important to discover the reality inside each individual, a reality immanent to him, connected with his thoughts and perceptions.”

The People of Vietnam: Their Voices and Lived Experiences

Editor: Yukio Shimura

Series: Countries and Cultures of the World

Publication Date: 2017 - 4th Quarter

Book Description:
In The People of Vietnam: Their Voices and Lived Experiences, a study is presented on Vietnamese migration to the Czech Republic, its modi operandi, and the exploitative strategies established by various agents involved in the practice. The authors discuss how Vietnamese migrants are manipulated, abused, and decieved by unofficial agencies and organizations engaged in the smuggling of people, as well by as licensed labor agencies for profit. Next, a study is presented on China-Vietnam marriages, in the context that these women have “the capacity to imagine and desire, to choose and to act (or to choose not to act), caring a lot about self development and expression.” They have tactically manipulated complicated realities in the framework of the China-Vietnam border to better their economic circumstances, and reshape their personal, familial, and social relationships. The authors continue with a study examining Vietnamese students’ proficiency level, their perceptions of an English curriculum, and course books suitable for them through two surveys. The following chapter reviews anthropometric characteristics of Vietnamese adolescents aged 11-14.5 in 2016, suggesting that solutions should be implemented to improve stature to meet the requirements of industrialization and modernization. The book closes with a chapter introducing a support system for Vietnamese ontology construction from text documents. Pattern-based learning is used as a major method for extracting concepts and concept relations from text input data, and a document converter is established to make Vietnamese documents compatible with the GATE system.

Leadership for Improvement: Perceptions, Influences and Gender Differences

Editor: Susan Morison (School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK)

Series: Leadership in a Changing World

Publication Date: 2017 - 4th Quarter

Book Description:
A significant role of leaders is to make improvements to the areas in which they lead. The leadership style used to do this and the approach taken is a matter that is heavily debated, but essentially it is an expectation that those who lead will provide a vision to shape and drive healthcare, education and political agendas of the future. The literature tells us that leaders have a responsibility to find the right way to guide, motivate and inspire others, and to ensure that they have successors who will take on the leadership mantle in a flexible and creative way. This collection of essays uses the context of healthcare, education and politics to examine and review ideas of leadership and perceptions of what leadership should be. The authors examine a range of influences on leadership style like gender differences and how these may be addressed.

In healthcare, transformational leadership has been identified as essential to improve patient care and safety as well as the health service itself and to contribute to driving change in a positive and supportive way. Conversely, ineffective and disengaged leadership has been responsible for failures, including failures to meet and improve standards of care and safety. In other areas, although strong leadership is seen as key to implementing and managing the myriad of changes demanded in the current economic climate, poor leadership is often held responsible when things fail. It is in the context of this complex environment and the need to drive change for improvement that the chapters in this book examine some key facets of leadership. Along with discussing practical examples of leadership initiatives, the authors in this collection have reviewed and reflected on a wide range of leadership literature. Each chapter addresses elements of these challenges, and together they seek to map out not only the challenges facing those who wish to understand better the role and action of leaders, but also to develop a sense of what good leadership entails.

The collection begins with a focus on healthcare (Chapters One through Seven); these chapters explore ways in which leadership is used to influence improvement and drive change. The healthcare chapters discuss how leadership has been used to develop global and European-wide approaches to improve medical care. They examine the role of leadership in shaping future healthcare professionals and the professions themselves. The role of leadership in encouraging collaborative approaches and multidisciplinarity as well as the influences of gender differences are all considered. Two of the healthcare chapters (Chapters Six and Seven) respectively outline a leadership programme for nursing students and reflect on an initiative to address gender inequalities in academia.

The remaining chapters (Chapters Eight through Eleven) move beyond the healthcare arena and explore the influence of wisdom on leadership practices in higher education, how military values and experiences might influence leadership approaches more widely, and how perceptions of gender can influence and limit leadership potential and the leadership role itself. Negative behaviours and their impact on leadership decisions are also discussed.
