Politisches Engagement
$26.94
Springer
April-22-2019
Politisches Engagement ist ein wichtiges Problemfeld unserer Gesellschaft. Vielen Menschen, insbesondere den j�ngeren, mangelt es an politischem Engagement, was in vielen F�llen in regelrechte Politikverdrossenheit m�ndet. Auf der anderen Seite kann politisches Engagement aber auch Extremformen annehmen, z.B. als Terrorismus oder rechtsextreme Beteiligung. Die Autoren dieses Buches bedienen die interdisziplin�re Perspektive der Politischen Psychologie, um dem Ph�nomen des politischen Engagements - seinen Bedingungen und Erkl�rungen - auf den Grund zu gehen und Vorschl�ge zur F�rderung konstruktiven politischen Handelns zu erarbeiten.

Citizenship und Kindheit

Springer
March-15-2019
Citizenship und Zivilgesellschaft werden aktuell wieder vermehrt diskutiert. Die neueren Konzeptionen vermeiden die begrenzende Enge der konzeptionellen nationalstaatlichen Grundlagen, in denen der Nationalstaat als Garant f�r Staatsb�rgerschaft steht. Stattdessen wird Globalisierung einbezogen, und daher eine kosmopolitische Perspektive eingenommen, die weit �ber die Fragen nach Rechten und Pflichten einer Staatsb�rgerschaft hinausgehen. Schlie�en theoretische Konzeptionen der Zivilgesellschaft, des �ffentlichen Raums und der politischen Partizipation, mit denen h�ufig Citizenship theoretisch dargestellt werden, auch Kinder ein? Oder grenzen nicht gerade die genannten Citizenship-Konzeptionen Kinder als Andere, als nicht zugeh�rende, als (noch-) Nicht-Citizens aus? Was kennzeichnet effektives Citizenship? Diesen Fragen geht Sabine D. Makowka in ihrem Buch nach, auf der Grundlage der Erkenntnisse und Forschungsergebnisse der produktiven und inzwischen gut etablierten Soziologie der Kindheit und der Kindheitswissenschaften. Das Werk eignet sich daher auch als erste Einf�hrung in die Citizenship Studies f�r Fachkr�fte und Studierende Sozialer Arbeit, die sich mit theoretischen Arbeiten zu Kindern und Kindheitskonzeptionen befassen m�gen.

Etiopathogenetic and Treatment Implications

This book presents a thorough and critical review of current �knowledge about �the age of onset of mental disorders. The opening chapters offer information about the impact of the age of onset on the clinical picture, course, and outcome of physical illnesses, and about �the neurobiological implications and correlates of different ages of onset. The impact and correlates of the ages of onset of all the most important mental disorders are then discussed in detail by internationally renowned scientists. The background to the book is the recognition that a better understanding of age of onset makes it possible to estimate the lifetime risk of disorders, helps to elucidate pathogenesis, and facilitates efficient, targeted clinical management. The book will be of value for clinicians, mental health professionals, mental health researchers, epidemiologists, and different stakeholders in the mental health field.

Vaccines: Are they Worth a Shot?
$34.64
Springer
September-11-2018

The dangerous decline in vaccinations in many developed countries is at the heart of a lively debate that confirms how important the subject is today. Vaccinations are among mankind?s most important scientific discoveries, yet they continue to be viewed with suspicion by part of the public ? the victims of disinformation campaigns, instrumentalization and unfounded fears. There is, however, also an evolutionary explanation for these irrational beliefs, and countering the growing social opposition will be extremely difficult without grasping it.

This book, which sheds new light on the safety and importance of vaccinations, is intended both for parents and those readers who want to understand the role of vaccinations in contemporary society, where the ease of access to knowledge is both a great opportunity and a great responsibility. The chapters follow a historical progression and conclude with a discussion of the most recent cognitive theories on how to overcome this opposition to vaccinations.

Principles and Practice of Biopsychosocial Care
Behavioral and Social Science in Medicine: Principles and Practice of Biopsychosocial Care provides state of the art reviews of the critical topic areas in undergraduate medical education identified in the 2004 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, ?Improving Medical Education: Enhancing the Behavioral and Social Sciences Content of Medical School Curricula.? The text is supplemented by web-enhanced learning materials including linked case studies, PDA materials, a study guide, and other online supplementary materials designed to actively engage learners while allowing for adaptations to learner and/or program needs. Although this text meets essential specific knowledge objectives in multiple domains, it emphasizes a core biopsychosocial approach across all content domains. The text focuses on helping learners develop the skills necessary to integrate complex interacting health-related variables across multiple frames of reference. The textbook addresses each of the six IOM domains: 1) Mind-body interactions in health and disease ? focuses on the four primary pathways of disease (biological, behavioral, psychological, and social). Students need to recognize and understand the many complex interactions among these pathways that may be compromising a patient?s physical and/or mental health. 2) Patient behavior ? centers on behavioral pathways to promoting health and preventing disease. Educating medical students about behaviors that pose a risk to health will better equip them to provide appropriate interventions and influence patient behavior. 3) Physician role and behavior ? emphasizes the physician?s personal background and beliefs as they may affect patient care, as well as the physician?s own well-being. 4) Physician-patient interactions ? focuses on the ability to communicate effectively, which, as noted above, is a critical component of medical practice. 5) Social and cultural issues in health care ? addresses what physicians need to know and do to provide appropriate care to patients with differing social, cultural, and economic backgrounds. 6) Health policy and economics ? includes those topics to which medical students should be exposed to help them understand the health care system in which they will eventually practice. Currently, many medical educators are required to piece together readings and other teaching materials to satisfy the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) requirements for behavioral and social science content in medical education. This volume is designed to satisfy LCME content requirements with the latest evidence-based materials in the social and behavioral sciences.

Online Citizen Science and the Widening of Academia
$107.03
Springer
May-31-2018
Distributed Engagement with Research and Knowledge Production
This book examines the increasing popularity of online citizen science projects arising from developments in ICT and rapid improvements in data storage and generation. As these new technologies allow for much higher levels of participation, collaboration and interaction, the author explores what online citizen science projects reveal about the ?democratisation? of science and distributed engagement with authentic research. Analysing the wider appeal of these projects as well as their potential for informal science learning and creating communities of practice, this book asks whether ?citizen? and ?researcher? will ever be on equal footing. Drawn from years of mixed-methods research, this volume sheds light on this under-researched subject area despite its recent growth and enormous potential. It is sure to be of interest to students and scholars of democratised knowledge, citizen science and online learning, as well as those already involved in citizen science.

Pseudoscience in Education and Its Threat to American Democracy
This book exposes a disturbing misuse of the scientific method to advance policies and agendas that are in fact detrimental to both science and education. The author, a physics professor, examines two related trends in education ? the practice of ?data-driven? reform and the disparaging of the traditional liberal arts in favor of programs with a heavy emphasis on science and technology. Many of the reforms being foisted on educators have more in common with pseudo-science than real science. The reduction of education to a commodity, and the shilling of science as a means to enhance corporate profits, lead to an impoverished and stunted understanding of science in particular, and of education in general.

How is it possible for:
? schools with all students learning at grade-level to be rated as failing?
? teachers to be rated as ineffective after all their students meet their learning outcomes?
? rising grade-school math standards to result in more college students needing remedial math?
? politicians to disparage scientists and their results but argue that more students should study science?

These bizarre outcomes have happened and are the result of an education system that misuses and misrepresents math and science in the classroom and in crafting education policies. This book exposes the flawed and fallacious thinking that is damaging education at all levels throughout the United States, and makes a compelling case for rethinking the standardized, optimized, and quantified approaches in vogue in education today to accommodate the different needs of individual teachers and students.

Towards Green Campus Operations

Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development Initiatives at Universities
Matters related to sustainable development, albeit global in nature, are best handled at the local level. This line of thinking is particularly true to the higher education context, where the design and implementation of sustainability initiatives on campuses can demonstrate how a given university translates the principles of sustainable development into practice, at the institutional level. Yet, there is a paucity of specific events where a dialogue among sustainability academics and practitioners concerned with a) research, projects b) teaching and c) planning and infra-structure leading to campus greening takes place, so as to allow a transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral exchange of ideas and experiences on the issues, matters and problems at hand. It is against this background that this book has been prepared. It is one of the outcomes of the ?First Symposium on Sustainability in University Campuses? (SSUC-2017) organised by the University of S�o Paulo in Brazil, Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), the Research and Transfer Centre ?Applications of Life Sciences? of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany), and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP). 
 
This book showcases examples of campus-based research and teaching projects, regenerative campus design, low-carbon and zero carbon buildings, waste prevention, and resilient transport, among others. It also demonstrates the role of campuses as platforms for transformative social learning and research, and explores the means via which university campuses can be made more sustainable. 
The aims of this publication are as follows: 
 
i. to provide universities with an opportunity to obtain information on campus greening and sustainable campus development initiatives from round the world;
 
ii. to document and promote information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of research, teaching and projects on campus greening and design, especially successful initiatives and good practice; 
 
iii. to introduce methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the topic of sustainable development in campus design and operations. 
 
This book entails contributions from researchers and practitioners in the field of campus greening and sustainable development in the widest sense, from business and economics, to arts, administration and environment.

Judith Butler, Race and Education
$114.73
Springer
May-13-2018
This book provides an analysis of race and education through the lens of the work of Judith Butler. Although Butler tends to be best known in the field of education for her work on gender and sexuality, her work more broadly encompasses the functioning of power and hegemonic norms and the formation of subjects, and thus can also be applied to analyse issues of race. Applying a Butlerian framework to race allows us to question its ontological status, while considering it a hegemonic norm and a performative notion which has a significant impact on real lives. The author considers the implications of Butler?s thinking for debates; addressing diverse contemporary educational issues in which race continues to be (re)produced, such as the formation of leaner identities, the production of the good citizen, raising student aspirations, counter terrorism and surveillance in education, and qualitative research in education. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of education and race, the sociology of education and equality of opportunity.

Working-Class Boys and Educational Success
$107.03
Springer
May-04-2018
Teenage Identities, Masculinities and Urban Schooling
This book examines the complex relationship between working-class masculinities and educational success. Drawing on a small sample of young men attending either a selective grammar or a secondary school in the same urban area of Belfast, the author demonstrates that contrary to popular belief, some working-class boys are engaged with education, are motivated to succeed and have high aspirations. However, the structures of schooling in a society where working class-ness is seen as feckless, tasteless and cultureless make the processes of becoming successful more challenging than they need to be. This volume reveals the unique processes of reconciling success and identities for individual working-class boys, and the important role schools have to play in this negotiation. Highly relevant to those engaged in teacher training in socially unequal societies, this book will also appeal to practitioners, sociologists of education, scholars of social justice and Bourdieusian theorists.

Teaching Urban Morphology
$130.13
Springer
May-03-2018
This book brings together contributions from some of the foremost international experts in the field of urban morphology and addresses major questions such as: What exactly is urban morphology? Why teach it? What contents should be taught in an urban morphology course? And how can it be taught most effectively?

Over the past few decades there has been a growing awareness of the importance of urban form in connection with the many dimensions ? social, economic, and environmental ? of our lives in cities. As a result, urban morphology ? the science of urban form, and now over a century old ? has taken on a key role in the debate on the past, present and future of cities. And yet it remains unclear how urban morphologists should convey the main morphological theories, concepts and techniques to our students ? the potential researchers of, and practitioners in, the urban landscapes of tomorrow. This book is the first to address that gap, providing concrete guidelines on how to teach urban morphology, complemented by EXAMPLES OF EXERCISES FROM THE AUTHORS? LESSONS.

Supplementary Schools and Ethnic Minority Communities
$107.03
Springer
April-28-2018
A Social Positioning Perspective
This book provides a unique perspective into the world of supplementary schooling, exploring both the social positioning of these schools and the ethnic minority communities they serve.� The author presents a close examination of the establishment and functioning of supplementary schools which offers a fresh and novel insight into acculturation processes.� Drawing on empirical data gathered from staff interviews, classroom observations and interactive recordings, this book explores the operation of supplementary schools as sites of identity construction where the community identities are preserved, defended, renegotiated and reconstructed.� The various modes of construction are indicative of the acculturation experiences of ethnic minority communities and the ways in which these communities negotiate residence in one country whilst having roots in another.� This book therefore offers a revealing conceptualization of supplementary schools, not merely as educational spaces, but socio-political enterprises that are situated within and respond to various historical, social and political contexts.� �This pioneering work will appeal to students and scholars in the fields of education, migration and identity.
