  • - The Keys to the White House
    af Allan J. Lichtman
    227,95 kr.

    Think that Richard Nixon lost the 1960 presidential election because he sweated on TV? Or that John Kerry was ';swiftboated' out of the presidency in 2004? Think again! In Predicting the Next President political analyst and historian Allan J. Lichtman presents thirteen historical factors, or ';keys' (four political, seven performance, and two personality), that determine the outcome of presidential elections. In the chronological, successful application of these keys to every election since 1860, Lichtman dispels much of the mystery behind electoral politics and challenges many traditional assumptions. An indispensable resource for political junkies who want to get a head-start on calling Decision 2012.

    Now, more than ever, education on the social and emotional aspects of learning is critical. As children learn to traverse a world that is ever-flattening concurrently they are drowning with information. Unfortunately, this same information can be misleading, tinged with anger, and creating an ever-unrealistic standard youth may never be able to live up to. As educators, social-emotional learning has always been a natural element of the school day. We must now recognize it as a critical subject area that has to be integrated and reinforced in every aspect of our teaching. The distinguishing quality of social and emotional skills will determine success or failure in those who will have to enter a world ever more connected systemically and globally

    Student political action has been a major and recurring feature of politics across the globe throughout the past century. Students have been involved in a full range of public issues, from anti-colonial movements, anti-war campaigns, civil rights and pro-democracy movements to campaigns against neoliberal policies, austerity, racism, misogyny and calls for climate change action. Yet their actions are frequently dismissed by political elites and others as ';adolescent mischief' or manipulation of young people by duplicitous adults. This occurs even as many working in governments, traditional media and educational organisations attempt to suppress student movements. Moreover, much of mainstream scholarly work has deemed student politics as unworthy of intellectual attention. These three edited volumes of books help set the record straight.Written by scholars and activists from around the world, When Students Protest: Universities in the Global North is the third in this three-volume study that explores university student politics in the global north. Authors explore university and college student political action, especially over the past decade. It is just over fifty years since May 1968 when student protests erupted at Universite Paris Nanterre in France and then spread across the globe. Contributors to this book demonstrate that despite repeated attempts by states, power elites and institutions to suppress and even criminalise student political action, student movements have always been part of the political landscape and remain a significant and potent source of political change and renewal.

  • - Straight Talk about Women and Drinking
    af Susan D Stewart
    216,95 kr.

    Existing portrayals of women who drink typically fall into two categories: disturbing stories of women hitting "rock bottom," resulting in ruined careers, families, and futures, or amusing stories of fun and harmless "girls' nights out," with women drinking and overindulging as a temporary escape from a never-ending list of work and family demands. Drawing on original research and extensive interviews with a diverse group of women, author Susan Stewart challenges these stereotypes, revealing women's complex relationships with alcohol and factors associated with its use.In On the Rocks Stewart asks a question others might prefer stay buried: what about women's lives have changed such that they drink more alcohol? Stewart's participants share stories of the many social forces that encourage women to drink: increased marketing of alcohol to women, the growing presence of alcohol in the workplace, pressure to drink from friends and family, and that drinking provides an easy "time-out" from children and housework. Stewarts' unvarnished examination of women and drinking challenges readers to think through its implications to individuals, families, and society.
