A historical sociology of disability human validity and invalidity from antiquity to early modernity

Hughes, Bill

Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2020

ISBN 978-0-367-17418-7 | 2020-02-18 | 11 Soziologie

 Covering the period from Antiquity to Early Modernity, A Historical Sociology of Disability argues that disabled people have been treated in Western society as good to mistreat and - with the rise of Christianity - good to be good to. It examines the place and role of disabled people in the moral economy of the successive cultures that have constituted 'Western civilisation'. This book is the story of disability as it is imagined and re-imagined through the cultural lens of ableism. It is a story of invalidation; of the material habituations of culture and moral sentiment that paint pictures of disability as 'what not to be'. The author examines the forces of moral regulation that fall violently in behind the dehumanising, ontological fait accompli of disability invalidation, and explores the ways in which the normate community conceived of, narrated and acted in relation to disability. A Historical Sociology of Disability will be of interest to all scholars, students and activists working in the field of Disability Studies, as well as sociology, education, philosophy, theology and history. It will appeal to anyone who is interested in the past, present and future of the 'last civil rights movement'. (

Accounting thought and practice reform Ray Chambers' odyssey

Clarke, Frank L.

Routledge, 2019

ISBN 978-1-138-33759-6 | 2020-02-21 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Raymond John Chambers was born just over a century ago on 16 November 1917. It is more than fifty years since his first classic, Accounting, Evaluation and Economic Behavior, was published, more than forty since Securities and Obscurities: Reform of the Law of Company Accounts (republished in 1980 as Accounting in Disarray) and over twenty since the unique An Accounting Thesaurus: Five Hundred Years of Accounting. They are drawn upon extensively in this biography of Chambers' intellectual contributions, as are other of his published works. Importantly, we also analyze archival correspondence not previously examined. While Chambers provided several bibliographical summaries of his work, without the benefits of reviewing and interspersing the text with correspondence materials from the Chambers Archive this study would lack an appreciation of the impact of his early childhood, and nuances related to his practical (including numerous consultancies) and academic experiences. The 'semi-biographical narrative' codifies article and editorial length exercises by the authors drawing on parts of the archive related to theory development, measurement and communication. Other parts are also examined. This allows us to respond to those critics who claim his reforms were naive. They further reveal a man of theory and practice, whose theoretical ideas were solidly grounded on observations from his myriad interests and experiences. Many of his practical experiences have not been examined previously. This approach and the first book-length biography differentiates this work from earlier analyses of Chambers' contribution to the accounting literature. We provide evidence to support the continued push for the reforms he proposed to accepted accounting thought and practice to ensure accounting is the serviceable technology so admired by Pacioli, Da Vinci and many other Renaissance pioneers. It will be of interest to researchers, educators, practitioners and regulators alike. (

Chatbots in education exploring the effects of an educational chatbot on learning behavior and outcome in a commercial high school context

Waldner, Sarah

October 22th, 2019

2020-02-18 | 07 Erziehungswissenschaft

 eng: Chatbots represent a very popular technology today, especially in organizations as well as in the people’s private life. The usage in organization is mainly concentrated on customer sup-port, where the chatbot responds questions of the users. Also booking a flight or direct cus-tomers to the right products are common tasks a chatbot does for people. However, chatbots can have many different applications, not only in organizations. In this study, the usage of chatbots in the educational sector will be investigated. Until now, this field is relatively unex-plored, especially when the focus lies on the information distribution to the students. In the literature, there is hardly anything researched about how and if a chatbot is able to transmit information to students. Therefore, this master thesis is focused on this topic. This study in-vestigated with help of an experiment whether a chatbot influences the learning behavior and the learning outcome of students in contrast to the traditional teaching materials. For that purpose, an experiment with two experimental rounds was conducted. The chatbot got equipped with a theory repetition function as well as quiz function which can be used in order to prepare for the test that will be conducted after the learning procedure. Moreover, the stu-dents received a pre- and a post-survey about different fields of interest concerning the topic chatbots. With help of the experiment it was visible that students were able to achieve a better result in the test when they prepared the topics with help of the chatbot. Moreover, the moti-vation was influenced positively when preparing with the chatbot. The results of this experi-ment delivered first insights in this until now relatively unexplored field of research and how and if chatbots can contribute to the learning process and learning success.

Cryptocurrencies and blockchains

DuPont, Quinn

Polity, 2019

ISBN 978-1-5095-2024-4 | 2020-02-18 | 12 Volkswirtschaft

 From their shadowy origins in Bitcoin to their use by multinational corporations, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are remaking the rules of digital media and society. Meanwhile, regulators, governments, and the public are trying to make sense of it all. In this accessible book, Quinn DuPont guides readers through the changing face of money to show how blockchain technology underpins new forms of value exchange and social coordination. He introduces cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to readers in terms of their developers and users, investment opportunities and risks, changes to politics and law, social and industrial applications - and what this all means for the new economy. The author argues throughout that, rather than being a technical innovation, cryptocurrencies and blockchains are social technologies enabling developers and users to engage in unprecedented experiments with social and political levers. Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains dispenses with hype and offers sober reflection on this crucial and timely topic. It is essential reading for students and scholars of culture, politics, media, and the economy, as well as anyone who wants to understand, take part in, or change the future of work and society. (

Das Landleben Geschichte einer gefährdeten Lebensform

Bätzing, Werner,

CHBeck, 2020

ISBN 978-3-406-74825-7 | 2020-02-14 | 11 Soziologie

 In einer Zeit zunehmender Verstädterung brauchen wir eine neue Sicht auf das Landleben. Es ist keineswegs Ausdruck überholter Verhältnisse, es ist vielmehr Grundlage für die Dynamik und Spezialisierung in den Städten und Zentren. Der bekannte Geograph und Alpenforscher Werner Bätzing hält das Land mit seinen Traditionen und Kulturlandschaften für unverzichtbar. Daher mündet sein so fundiertes wie nachdenkliches Buch in Leitideen für die Zukunft des Landlebens. Gibt es heute noch ein Leben auf dem Land, das nicht städtische geprägt ist? Und brauchen wir in der modernen Welt überhaupt ein Landleben? Oder ist es nur noch ein romantisches Relikt aus der vergangenen Zeit? Wer das Landleben verstehen will, so der bekannte Geograph und Alpenforscher Werner Bätzing, muss Landwirtschaft, bäuerliche Kulturlandschaften, Dorfleben, Traditionen sowie die engen Verflechtungen zischen Ihnen kennen. Da das Land aber stets in einem engen Austausch mit der Stadt steht, muss er auch verstehen, welche Auswirkungen die Industrielle Revolution, die Entdeckung des Landes als "schöne Landschaft", der wirtschaftliche und demographische Wandel, die Entstehung der Konsumgesellschaft und das Erstarken des Neoliberalismus auf das Landleben besitzen - andernfalls besteht die Gefahr, das Land zu stark als Idylle wahrzunehmen. Bätzings breit angelegte und historisch fundierte Darstellung steht quer zu den üblichen Sichtweisen und lässt das Landleben in einem völlig neuem Licht erscheinen. (

Der Triumph der Ungerechtigkeit Steuern und Ungleichheit im 21. Jahrhundert

Saez, Emmanuel

Suhrkamp, 2020

ISBN 978-3-518-42935-8 | 2020-02-14 | 12 Volkswirtschaft

 Bekanntlich sind auf der Welt nur zwei Dinge sicher: der Tod und die Steuern. Allerdings scheint Benjamin Franklins Bonmot nicht für alle zu gelten. Multinationale Großkonzerne entwickeln immer ausgeklügeltere Methoden, um ihre Gewinne am Fiskus vorbeizuschleusen, Steuerparadiese unterbieten sich in der Konkurrenz um die Gelder Wohlhabender. In den USA müssen Milliardäre dank Trumps Reformen inzwischen weniger an den Staat abtreten als ihre Assistenten. Die beiden Ökonomen Emmanuel Saez und Gabriel Zucman rekonstruieren, wie es zu dieser Ungerechtigkeit kommen konnte. Sie erklären Steuervermeidungsstrategien, zeigen auf, wie Steuerungerechtigkeit und Ungleichheit miteinander verbunden sind, und formulieren Vorschläge für gerechtere Abgabensysteme in einer globalisierten Welt. Wir müssen verhindern, so die renommierten Ungleichheitsforscher, dass eine Konzentration des Reichtums in den Händen weniger die demokratischen Entscheidungen vieler aushebelt. (

Die Erfindung des Traumas verflochtene Geschichten

Becker, David

Psychosozial-Verl, 2014

ISBN 978-3-8379-2396-4 | 2020-02-21 | 05 Psychologie

 Anhaltende Konflikte, Kriege und Migration machen traumatische Erfahrungen zu einem globalen Phänomen der Gegenwart. Trotz der Notwendigkeit, den Zusammenhang zwischen intrapsychischen und sozialen Problemen zu verstehen, spaltet sich die Traumatheorie in zwei Hauptströme, die häufig nur einen der Aspekte berücksichtigen: Der medizinisch-symptomorientierte Mainstream generiert dabei kontextverleugnende und subjektfeindliche Therapiemethoden, während sozialpolitische und diskursanalytische Ansätze riskieren, das spezifische Leid Einzelner aus den Augen zu verlieren. Im vorliegenden Buch reflektiert David Becker diese Widersprüche im Bezug auf die psychotherapeutische Praxis und analysiert die politischen Perspektiven. Schließlich begründet er ein konzeptionelles Umdenken in der Traumatheorie und fragt nach den Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von psychosozialer Hilfe in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit. (

 Angst und Unsicherheit prägen die Arbeitswelt. Zehn Prozent der Beschäftigten befürchten, innerhalb der nächsten sechs Monate ihren Arbeitsplatz zu verlieren. Über ein Drittel arbeitet weniger als ein Jahr für den gleichen Arbeitgeber und ist atypisch beschäftigt, bei Frauen betrifft das mehr als die Hälfte. Das Normalarbeitsverhältnis ist vom Aussterben bedroht. Dieses Buch liefert einen umfassenden Überblick über die Entwicklung prekärer Beschäftigung in Europa von den frühen 1980er-Jahren bis heute. Zehn Menschen erzählen darin außerdem von ihrem Leben und Leid mit miesen Jobs und Arbeitsbedingungen. Sie zeigen auf, was Hungerlöhne, fehlender rechtlicher Schutz und mangelnde soziale Absicherung für die Betroffenen und ihre Angehörigen tagtäglich bedeuten. Es gibt nur einen Weg für alle arbeitenden Menschen zu einem selbstbestimmten, sicheren und chancengerechten Leben: sich als Gemeinschaft zu begreifen und sich zu organisieren, unabhängig von Herkunft, Geschlecht, Hautfarbe und Alter. Solidarisches Handeln ist die einzige Möglichkeit zum Machtausgleich. (

Emotions and violence shame and rage in destructive conflicts

Scheff, Thomas J.

Authors Guild Backimprintcom Ed, 2001

ISBN 978-0-595-21190-6 | 2020-02-18 | 07 Erziehungswissenschaft

 What causes violencé Thomas Scheff and Suzanne Retzinger deftly explore this age-old question. What emerges is an extraordinarily innovative explanation that gives fresh hope for reducing physical and emotional violence in the world and in our times.The authors provide remarkable new insights into the sources of destructive conflict. They explore human interaction in psychotherapy sessions, marital quarrels, TV game shows, and high politics. Their original interpretation of a classic work of fiction, Goethe's The Sufferings of Young Werther, and case studies of Hitler and his master architect, Albert Speer, offer additional, powerful illustrations of their theory: violence arises from the denial of emotions particularly from the denial of shame and from hidden alienation in relationships.Researchers in violence, psychotherapists, and criminal justice professionals will welcome this thoughtful inquiry that integrates different disciplines and spans topics from alienation and conscience building to the hidden world of gesture, implication, and emotion. Scheff and Retzinger's examples and recommendations furnish a practical blueprint for understanding and reducing physical and emotional violence at both the interpersonal and societal levels. Social and behavioral scientists will be stimulated by the novel approach to theory and method in this work. It also has practical implications for the fields of psychotherapy, education, criminal justice, and international relations. (

Employment relationships in service work a double triangle

Martinek, Paulina


2020-02-19 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 eng: The luxury hospitality industry currently faces a significant skilled labor shortage representing a risk to the rapid growth of the industry. Recent research has shown that more and more labor market intermediaries are being used to assist employers in filling their vacancies, thereby creating a triadic employment relationship (Bonet, Cappelli, & Hamori, 2013). At the same time, the guest is considered to be an important actor in the employment relationship in service work, thus a triangular relationship is also claimed here (Supramanian & Suquet, 2017). The purpose of this study is to investigate the connection between these two relationship triangles in service work. br /br /Building on existing work on employment relationships in the hospitality industry and triangular employment relationships with labor market intermediaries and customers, it asks: How are the two relationship triangles in service work connected? In this context, employment relationships are seen as consisting of various elements that are exchanged between employers and employees. These elements can be of occupational, organizational, role, relational, task, or monetary nature. br /br /Empirical data on employment relationships in the luxury hospitality industry in Germany and Austria were collected in seven focus groups with a total of 72 participants and eight individual interviews. The respondents all represent the employer ?s point of view. br /br /Analysis of the responses showed that labor market intermediaries and guests simultaneously influence many elements of the initial employment relationship. These elements represent the connection of the two triangles and prove the existence of a double triangular employment relationship in service work. Further research is needed to include the perspectives of the other actors and to verify the results for other service industries.

Entrusted stewardship for responsible wealth creation

Hwee, Ong Boon.

Stewardship Asia; World Scientific, 2020

2020-02-18 | 10 Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften

 Financial Times Business Book of the Month: October 2019 Our system of wealth creation is at a crossroads. It has contributed to economic and social progress. Yet it has also fuelled many problems from climate impacts, and air pollution, to digital manipulation and the invasion of privacy. In many parts of the world, there are demands for government action to restrain greed, irresponsibility and short-termism. But what about positive solutions? How do we define the contributions that we all want business and investment to maké That is the challenge to which Ong Boon Hwee and Mark Goyder respond. They argue that if our societies are to be set on a forward-looking virtuous cycle and a less damaging course, we will need every ounce of human ingenuity — the inventiveness of entrepreneurs, the dynamism of companies and the adaptability of markets. We need a sense of ownership and purpose, anchored on strong values. We need to be better at valuing the future and rewarding those whose work will benefit future generations. We need a better form of capitalism, one which, while promoting competition, is there to serve and not dominate; to respect human beings and not exploit them; to nurture our surrounding environment, and not destroy it. This will only be achieved by injecting the spirit and principles of stewardship into the decisions of investors, business leaders, regulators and citizens. The authors draw on their combined experience, gelling the perspectives of East and West, to offer a vision and agenda for responsible wealth creation. Stewardship means that we manage, nurture and grow what has been entrusted to us so that we hand it over in a better condition to the next generation. This book offers ideas and guidance for people in all levels of business — asset owners, asset managers, investors, shareholders, board directors, management, policymakers and regulators. It is a handbook for all those willing to play their part in responsible wealth creation, now and for future generations. It says to each participant consider what you have been entrusted with, and then decide what you are doing about your stewardship responsibilities. (

Negri, Antonio

polity, 2017

ISBN 978-1-5095-0351-3 | 2020-02-18 | 99 keine Zordnung

 This third and final volume of the series of writings by Antonio Negri examines how Spinoza's thought constitutes a radical break with past ideas and an essential tool for envisaging a form of politics beyond capitalism. Negri shows how Spinoza's ideas have facilitated radical renewal from their beginnings to the present day. It was the democratic freedoms and spirit of solidarity fostered in The Netherlands of the 17th century that allowed Spinoza to develop a radically new form of thought, redefining notions of the state and outlining a republican alternative to absolutist monarchy. In our own era, Negri argues that the rediscovery of Spinoza was critical in reinvigorating political theory. Instead of acquiescing to the economic order of capitalism and abandoning the class struggle, Spinoza's ideas enable us to reconstruct a revolutionary perspective. His treatment of concepts such as multitude, necessity, and liberty have given us new ways of looking critically at our present, revealing that power must always be seen as a question of antagonism and class struggle. The writings that make up this volume - some written from prison as Negri fought for his own freedom - provide an important account of the enduring relevance of Spinoza's thought. It will be of great interest to students and scholars of philosophy and political theory, as well anyone interested in radical politics today. ( (

Negri, Antonio

 This second volume of a new three-part series of Antonio Negri's work is focussed on the consequences of the rapid process of deindustrialisation that has occurred across the West in recent years. In this volume Negri investigates exactly what happens when the class subjects of industrial capitalism are demobilised and the factories close. Evidently capital continues to make profit, but how and wheré According to Negri, the creation of value extends beyond the factory walls to embrace the whole of society; the 'mass worker' of industrialism gives way to the 'socialised worker' (operaio sociale) and the terrain of exploitation now becomes the whole of human life. In postmodernity, the metropolis becomes the privileged arena of value extraction. We must therefore understand the global city, with its stratifications, its enclosures and its resistances. Old categories of the private and the public are inadequate to describe the new matrix of production, which is characterised rather by the 'common', the productive space of cognitive and immaterial labour. Today's metropolis can be defined as a space of antagonisms between forms of life produced, on the one hand, by finance capital (the capital that operates around rents), and on the other by the 'cognitive proletariat'. The central question is then how 'the common' of the latter can be mobilised for the destruction of capitalism. In an analysis that runs from the Italian workerism (operaismo) of the 1970s to the present day, From the Factory to the Metropolis offers readers valuable insight into the far-reaching impact of deindustrialisation, presenting both the challenges and opportunities. It will appeal to the many interested in the continuing development of Negri's project and to anyone interested in radical politics today. (

Negri, Antonio

polity, 2017

ISBN 978-1-5095-0340-7 | 2020-02-18 | 10 Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften

 This the first of a new three-part series in which Antonio Negri, a leading political thinker of our time, explores key ideas that have animated radical thought and examines some of the social and economic forces that are shaping our world today. In this first volume Negri shows how the thinking of Marx and Foucault were brought together to create an original theoretical synthesis - particularly in the context of Italy from May 68 onwards. At around that time, the structures of industry and production began to change radically, with the emergence of new producer-subjects and new fields of capitalist value creation. New concepts and theories were developed by Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari and others to help make sense of these and related developments - concepts such as biopower and biopolitics, subjectivation and subsumption, public and common, power and potentiality. These concepts and theories are examined by Negri within the broader context of the development of European philosophical discourse in the twentieth century. Marx and Foucault provides a unique account of the development of radical thought in the late 20th and early 21st centuries and will be a key text for anyone interested in radical politics today. (

Formalisierungen in der Sozialen Arbeit zur Institutionalisierung methodischer Modernisierungen in den sozialen Diensten

Mairhofer, Andreas.

Beltz Juventa, 2020

ISBN 978-3-7799-6084-3 | 2020-02-20 | 07 Erziehungswissenschaft

 Formalisierte fachliche Instrumente und Verfahren (z. B. Diagnosebögen) gewinnen in vielen Feldern der Sozialen Arbeit an Bedeutung. Auf der Grundlage von empirischen Befunden einer Mixed-Methods-Studie zu Formalisierungsprozessen in Jugendämtern werden die (Hinter-)Gründe, Dynamiken und Folgen dieses Trends analysiert und diskutiert. Im Zentrum der neo-institutionalistisch gerahmten Untersuchung stehen dabei einerseits die Anlässe, Motive und Prozesse der Implementierung formalisierter Instrumente und Verfahren in sozialen Diensten, andererseits die Art und Weise, wie sozialpädagogische Fachkräfte diese Formalisierungen in ihrer Alltagspraxis nutzen.

Future politics living together in a world transformed by tech

Susskind, Jamie

Oxford University Press, 2018

ISBN 978-0-19-884892-9 | 2020-02-19 | 11 Soziologie

 Politics in the Twentieth Century was dominated by a single question: how much of our collective life should be determined by the state, and what should be left to the market and civil society? Now the debate is different: to what extent should our lives be directed and controlled by powerful digital systems - and on what terms? Digital technologies - from artificial intelligence to blockchain, from robotics to virtual reality - are transforming the way we live together. Those who control the most powerful technologies are increasingly able to control the rest of us. As time goes on, these powerful entities - usually big tech firms and the state - will set the limits of our liberty, decreeing what may be done and what is forbidden. Their algorithms will determine vital questions of social justice. In their hands, democracy will flourish or decay. A landmark work of political theory, Future Politics challenges readers to rethink what it means to be free or equal, what it means to have power or property, and what it means for a political system to be just or democratic. In a time of rapid and relentless changes, it is a book about how we can - and must - regain control. Winner of the Estoril Global Issues Distinguished Book Prize. (

How to be innovative early stage innovation for scientists, technologists and others - from idea to proof-of-concept

Lednor, Peter W.

World Scientific, 2019

ISBN 978-981-322-203-8 | 2020-02-18 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 'A concise guide to early-stage innovation which will be valuable to everyone making the transition from individual scientist or engineer to a role in achieving innovation by an organization.' This transition is often harder than is recognized. The target audience has typically reached the top of an educational ladder, and moves, with a first job, to an organization with different norms, objectives and understanding of innovation. Relevant organizations are wide-ranging, and include companies, governments (local or national), government agencies and educational institutions. The primary purpose of this book is to provide a useful resource for those making the above transition. It may also be of value to people interacting with innovative scientists and technologists from other perspectives, for example from those in funding, commercial or managerial roles. The book has three areas of focus. Firstly, on early-stage innovation, covering the journey from idea to proof-of-concept. Here the factors involved are common across many different areas. Secondly, on the needs of scientists and technologists, and thirdly on innovation by organizations. The contents cover key ideas in innovation, processes for stimulating and managing early-stage innovation, open innovation, and behaviors and communications which support innovation. Conceptual frameworks are described, as well as practical examples. A set of case studies is included, and extensive references are provided. A concluding chapter discusses developments in the management of innovation. The content has been shaped by the author's experience in giving many interactive courses on managing early stage innovation to scientists and engineers, which has given insights into needs; the style is shaped by the author's track record in scientific publications and lecturing. The focus, content and style will make the book more accessible and attractive to the target readership than related books on the market, and will benefit the target readership by enabling them to become more effective in roles involving innovation. Contents: Basic Concepts Building the Innovation Process Open Innovation Behaviours and Communications Conclusions, Pitfalls and Further Information Examples of Innovations Practical Aspects (

Payne, Malcolm

Polity Press, 2020

ISBN 978-1-4473-4377-6 | 2020-02-24 | 07 Erziehungswissenschaft

 Social work theory is full of ideas about how to practise. It guides you in what to do as well as how to approach and think about social work goals. In this clear and systematic book covering both general practice concepts and theoretical insights, best-selling author Malcolm Payne shows you how to work with the main theories and practice techniques and pinpoint their strengths and limitations. This book: * Explores the social work process from first to last contact; * Covers all the theories and methods you need to know as a practitioner; * Examines practice techniques and the ideas that inform them; * Includes helpful chapter-by-chapter infographics. This practical guide condenses the practical features of social work theory but doesn't oversimplify them. Students and practitioners can confidently put their knowledge into action and see how everyday practice implements theoretical ideas. It will be an invaluable resource to students and newly qualified practitioners in social work and in related fields of practice, making connections with both classic and contemporary movements in social work.

How we became our data a genealogy of the informational person

Koopman, Colin

The University of Chicago Press, 2019

ISBN 978-0-226-62644-4 | 2020-02-17 | 03 Informationswissenschaft, Bibliothek

 We are now acutely aware, as if all of the sudden, that data matters enormously to how we live. How did information come to be so integral to what we can dö How did we become people who effortlessly present our lives in social media profiles and who are meticulously recorded in state surveillance dossiers and online marketing databases? What is the story behind data coming to matter so much to who we aré In 'How We Became Our Data', Colin Koopman excavates early moments of our rapidly accelerating data-tracking technologies and their consequences for how we think of and express our selfhood today. Koopman explores the emergence of mass-scale record keeping systems like birth certificates and social security numbers, as well as new data techniques for categorizing personality traits, measuring intelligence, and even racializing subjects. This all culminates in what Koopman calls the &;informational person and the informational power we are now subject to. The recent explosion of digital technologies that are turning us into a series of algorithmic data points is shown to have a deeper and more turbulent past than we commonly think. Blending philosophy, history, political theory, and media theory in conversation with thinkers like Michel Foucault, Jürgen Habermas, and Friedrich Kittler, Koopman presents an illuminating perspective on how we have come to think of our personhood and how we can resist its erosion.

Jobs to be done theory to practice

Ulwick, Anthony W.

Idea Bite Press, 2016

ISBN 978-0-9905767-4-7 | 2020-02-19 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Why do so many innovation projects fail? What are the root causes of failuré How can they be avoided? Since 1990, Tony Ulwick has pioneered an innovation process that answers these questions. In 1999, Tony introduced Clayton Christensen to the idea that “people have underlying needs or processes in their lives, that they are addressing in some way right now”—an insight that was to become Jobs-to-be-Done Theory. For 25 years, Ulwick and his company, Strategyn, have helped over 400 companies, applying Jobs-to-be-Done Theory in practice with a success rate of 86%—a 5-fold improvement. 'Ulwick has taken the guesswork out of innovation,' says the ‘father of modern marketing,’ Philip Kotler, S. C. Johnson Distinguished Professor of International Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. 'He has done this by introducing us to Jobs-to-be-Done theory, and converting it to practice using his rigorous innovation process known as Outcome-Driven Innovation. I call him the Deming of Innovation because, more than anyone else, Tony has turned innovation into a science,' adds Kotler. LEARN - Why companies fail at innovation and how to avoid critical mistakes. - How to employ the Jobs-to-be-Done Theory Needs Framework to categorize, define, capture, and prioritize customer needs. - A Jobs-to-be-Done Growth Strategy Matrix to categorize, understand, and employ the 5 strategies that drive growth. - Outcome-Based Segmentation: how does it create new opportunities? - The details of the innovation process known as Outcome-Driven Innovation. It ties customer-defined metrics to the customer’s Job-to-be-Done, transforming every aspect of opportunity discovery, marketing and innovation. - The Language of Job-to-be-Done – the syntax and lexicon of innovation.

Dabei verwerfen sie althergebrachte Vorstellungen vom Wesen des Kapitalismus und wie dieser zu kritisieren sei. Stattdessen liefern sie präzise Diagnosen der gegenwärtigen Krisen und Aufstände und analysieren die Handlungsspielräume linker Politik. (

 This book will help you implement successful change and bypass change resistance by co-creating change. The book will do that through examples of how innovative practices can dramatically improve the success of change programs. These practices combine ideas from the Agile, Lean Startup, change management, organizational development and psychology communities. This book will change how you think about change. In this book we will cover: Why does change resistance emerge and what you should NOT do about it. And of course, how to harness that human reaction to the benefit of all involved in the change process. Step-by-step descriptions of how we combined ideas from many change methods and frameworks to develop a customized change management process that was right for The Commission. How you can customize your own change program just like we did at The Commission. How you can involve the people affected in the change in the design of that change. Directly contributing to the success of the change program. A newly appointed CIO had shaken the place up with some big changes, including a transition away from traditional management practices and towards Agile practices. How to implement these modern approaches to management in a very traditional organization? A new approach to change was needed. Lean Change Management was needed. This book describes how myself and team of change agents helped The Commission transform from an old-school public sector to a modern Agile organization. Was it easy? Of course not. But it was possible because of the innovative practices for Change Management that I describe in this book. (

Methods of discovery heuristics for the social sciences

Abbott, Andrew Delano

Norton, © 2004

ISBN 978-0-393-97814-8 | 2020-02-17 | 11 Soziologie

 Abbott helps social science students discover what questions to ask. This exciting book is not about habits and the mechanics of doing social science research, but about habits of thinking that enable students to use those mechanics in new ways, by coming up with new ideas and combining them more effectively with old ones. Abbott organizes his book around general methodological moves, and uses examples from throughout the social sciences to show how these moves can open new lines of thinking. In each chapter, he covers several moves and their reverses (if these exist), discussing particular examples of the move as well as its logical and theoretical structure. Often he goes on to propose applications of the move in a wide variety of empirical settings. The basic aim of Methods of Discovery is to offer readers a new way of thinking about directions for their research and new ways to imagine information relevant to their research problems. Methods of Discovery is part of the Contemporary Societies series. (

 Auch wenn Umweltbewegungen 'Weiter so ist keine Option! Wende oder Ende!' fordern und der Begriff der Nachhaltigkeit voll im Mainstream angekommen ist - die moderne Gesellschaft verteidigt ihren Wohlstand und Lebensstil entschiedener denn je. Beharrlich wird eine Politik der Nicht-Nachhaltigkeit betrieben, und die Konjunktur des Rechtspopulismus signalisiert zudem eine deutliche Abkehr vom ökologisch-demokratischen Projekt vergangener Jahrzehnte. Dieser Band stellt grundlegende Annahmen der Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte in Frage und skizziert neue sozialwissenschaftliche Forschungsperspektiven, um die eigenartige Fortdauer der Nicht-Nachhaltigkeit zu erhellen.

Not all dead white men classics and misogyny in the digital age

Zuckerberg, Donna

Harvard University Press, 2018

ISBN 978-0-674-97555-2 | 2020-02-17 | 11 Soziologie

 A chilling account of trolling, misogyny, racism, and bad history proliferated online by the Alt-Right, bolstered by the apparent authority of Greek and Latin Classics. Zuckerberg makes a persuasive case for why we need a new, more critical, and less comfortable relationship between the ancient and modern worlds in this important and very timely book. Emily Wilson A virulent strain of antifeminism is thriving online that treats women's empowerment as a mortal threat to men and to the integrity of Western civilization. Its proponents cite ancient Greek and Latin texts to support their claims—arguing that they articulate a model of masculinity that sustained generations but is now under siege. Donna Zuckerberg dives deep into the virtual communities of the far right, where men lament their loss of power and privilege and strategize about how to reclaim them. She finds, mixed in with weightlifting tips and misogynistic vitriol, the words of the Stoics deployed to support an ideal vision of masculine life. On other sites, pickup artists quote Ovid's Ars Amatoria to justify ignoring women's boundaries. By appropriating the Classics, these men lend a veneer of intellectual authority and ancient wisdom to their project of patriarchal white supremacy. In defense or retaliation, feminists have also taken up the Classics online, to counter the sanctioning of violence against women. Not All Dead White Men reveals that some of the most controversial and consequential debates about the legacy of the ancients are raging not in universities but online. (

Organisationssupervision – ein Konzept Erfahren, Verstehen und Mitgestalten organisationaler Interaktionen : mit ... einer Tabelle

Welche aktuelle Bedeutung dieser Interaktionen in der Arbeitswelt haben – sowohl im Rahmen von adressatenbezogener Arbeit als auch im Bereich organisationaler Koordination – zeigt Angela Gotthardt-Lorenz auf Basis von Systematiken und Forschungen der neueren Arbeitssoziologie. Organisationssupervision basiert auf einer konzeptionellen Rahmung, die den Strukturen, Dynamiken und Aufgaben in Organisationen Rechnung trägt. Die Entwicklung und Begleitung von Supervisionsprojekten ist getragen durch den Anspruch, professionelles Handeln und menschenwürdige Arbeit zu unterstützen und die Supervision selbst einem fortlaufenden Reflexionsprozess zu unterziehen. In den damit gegebenen Spannungsfeldern liefert das Rollengestaltungsmodell der Organisationssupervision eine Verstehensmatrix und konzeptiv begründbare Ansatzpunkte für supervisorische Interventionen.

Organizational commitment the case of unrewarded behavior

Bar-Haim, Aviad

World Scientific, 2019

ISBN 978-981-323-215-0 | 2020-02-21 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Organizational commitment (OC) is typically thought of in mainstream research as a beneficial behaviour, with employers mutually rewarding employees for their labor. However, in recent decades, there have been many signs that the benefits of OC cannot be taken for granted. The world of work is changing, with organizations downsizing, outsourcing labor activities and restructuring into leaner entities.Adding to this is the trend whereby almost everywhere, organizations are systematically striving to avoid long-term commitment to their workforce, by resorting to atypical, non-standard jobs (such as part-time work, temporary or agency employment, and other types of insecure jobs). This new regime of employment is an escape from organizational commitment and a tendency to avoid long-term relations.In this book, the author challenges the mainstream research on OC. Surveying the rise and fall of the idea of OC among corporate managers and employees, in an era of escape from responsibility and commitment, the author redefines OC as unique, unrewarded behavior of a minority of employees in times of trouble for their employing organization. These employees, who have alternatives in the labor market, continue to stay unrewarded with their organizations despite their ability to leave for a more secure and rewarding workplace.Presenting this new definition of OC, the author addresses theoretical and empirical flaws in the current concept, while returning to an idea of commitment that is more widely used in social sciences: Commitment as a guarantee of fulfilment of obligations, which are neither motivating nor pleasant, but necessary.

Overtourism tourism management and solutions

Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2020

ISBN 978-0-367-18743-9 | 2020-02-20 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Overtourism explores a growing phenomenon in tourism that is currently creating tensions in both urban and rural tourist destinations worldwide. This volume proposes a framework for a series of possible solutions and management strategies for dealing with overtourism and the various negative impacts that large quantities of tourists can impose. Questioning the causes of this phenomenon - such as increased prosperity and mobility, technological development, issues of security and stigma for certain parts of the world, and so on - this book supposes that better visitor management strategies and distribution of tourists can offset the negative impacts of overtourism. Individual chapters focus on a range of destinations including Venice, Barcelona and Dubrovnik, as well as UNESCO cultural and natural heritage sites, where local political actors and public authorities are not always able to deal with the situation effectively. Integrating research and practice, this book will be of great interest to upper-level students, researchers and academics in tourism, development studies, cultural studies and sustainability, as well as professionals in the field of tourism management.

Presidential campaigning in the internet age

Stromer-Galley, Jennifer

Oxford University Press, 2019

ISBN 978-0-19-069405-0 | 2020-02-19 | 09 Politikwissenschaft

 As the plugged-in presidential campaign has arguably reached maturity, Presidential Campaigning in the Internet Age challenges popular claims about the democratizing effect of Digital Communication Technologies (DCTs). Analyzing campaign strategies, structures, and tactics from the past six presidential election cycles, Stromer-Galley reveals how, for all their vaunted inclusivity and tantalizing promise of increased two-way communication between candidates and the individuals who support them, DCTs have done little to change the fundamental dynamics of campaigns. The expansion of new technologies has presented candidates with greater opportunities to micro-target potential voters, cheaper and easier ways to raise money, and faster and more innovative ways to respond to opponents. The need for communication control and management, however, has made campaigns slow and loathe to experiment with truly interactive internet communication technologies. Citizen involvement in the campaign historically has been and, as this book shows, continues to be a means to an end: winning the election for the candidate. For all the proliferation of apps to download, polls to click, videos to watch, and messages to forward, the decidedly undemocratic view of controlled interactivity is how most campaigns continue to operate. In the fully revised second edition, Presidential Campaigning in the Internet Age examines election cycles from 1996, when the World Wide Web was first used for presidential campaigning, through 2016 when campaigns had the full power of advertising on social media sites. As the book charts changes in internet communication technologies, it shows how, even as campaigns have moved from a mass mediated to a networked paradigm, the possibilities these shifts in interactivity seem to promise for citizen input and empowerment remain farther than a click away.

Qualitative methodologies and data collection methods toward increased rigour in management research

Groenland, Edward.

World Scientific, 2020

2020-02-18 | 01 Allgemeines

 'Globalisation opens new frontiers of research that require advanced research methods. While quantitative methods are ideal in some situations, qualitative methods are more appropriate for responding to 'how' questions in new contexts. They aim to understand and provide a holistic picture via interaction a unique advantage over quantitative methods. This textbook for graduate students introduces qualitative research and covers major qualitative methodologies and data collection methods. The choice of methodologies in this book is based on their actual applicability in management research. This approach provides a hands-on emphasis while maintaining both scientific rigor and rooting, and a high practicality level with respect to problem analysis, the collection of data, and the way this data should be analysed. Students and researchers will benefit from features including explanations of the advantages and disadvantages of methodological choices, elaborated examples of good articles, and exercises provided to facilitate research skills. The reader will acquire an overview of current methodologies, which will facilitate the choice process with respect to research approaches, and is also encouraged to bring personal research skills to a higher level.'

Routledge international handbook of the sociology of art and culture

Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2016

ISBN 978-1-138-59639-9 | 2020-02-20 | 11 Soziologie

 The Routledge Handbook of the Sociology of Arts and Culture offers a comprehensive overview of sociology of art and culture, focusing especially - though not exclusively - on the visual arts, literature, music, and digital culture. Extending, and critiquing, Bourdieu's influential analysis of cultural capital, the distinguished international contributors explore the extent to which cultural omnivorousness has eclipsed highbrow culture, the role of age, gender and class on cultural practices, the character of aesthetic preferences, the contemporary significance of screen culture, and the restructuring of popular culture. The Handbook critiques modes of sociological determinism in which cultural engagement is seen as the simple product of the educated middle classes. The contributions explore the critique of Eurocentrism and the global and cosmopolitan dimensions of cultural life. The book focuses particularly on bringing cutting edge `relational' research methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative, to bear on these debates. This handbook not only describes the field, but also proposes an agenda for its development which will command major international interest. (

Selling science how to use business skills to win support for scientific research

Judge, Steven

World Scientific, 2019

ISBN 978-1-78634-572-1 | 2020-02-21 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Applying for grants, bidding for project funding or helping to sell products are part of the day to day life of a research scientist. Drawing on experience at leading research institutes and companies, the authors of this book turned to best practice in marketing to make 'selling science' interesting and rewarding for scientists. The central thesis of the book is that effective marketing means planning for the impact of research, and this is a skill that every scientist can easily acquire. It sets out a structured approach, supported by tools, checklists and hints from experience so that delivering impact from research becomes 'just the way things are done around here'. Starting with gathering background information (in much the same way as preparing the introduction to a scientific paper), the book describes methods to analyse the data and to implement a communication plan. The book is a valuable resource for research scientists from any discipline, and for team leaders wanting to involve members of their team in developing their organization's strategy. (

Small states in world politics the story of small state survival, 1648-2016

Maass, Matthias

Manchester University Press, 2017

ISBN 978-0-7190-8273-3 | 2020-02-21 | 09 Politikwissenschaft

 What is the story behind the paradoxical survival of small and weak states in a world of great powers and crude power politics? And what explains the dramatic rise and fall in the number of states overtime, following no consistent trend and not showing an immediately obvious direction or pattern? The answers lie at the system-level: Small states survival is shaped by the international states system. Small state survival and proliferation is determined first and foremost by features of and dynamics created at the states system. As the states system changes and evolves the chances for small states to survive or proliferate change as well. In fact, a quantitive investigation confirms this, showing that over the course of more than 3½ centuries, the number of small states did fluctuate widely and at times dramatically. (

 Can the fall of globalization told through true storytelling save humanity from its own extinction? The Sixth Extinction has begun and there is no Planet B. To prevent further damage to the earth's ecosystem, this book proposes a new 'Globalization Praxis' that focuses on nine planetary boundaries. This praxis is called 'true storytelling'. True storytelling is an ethical praxis, a methodology, and an antenarrative process of strategy.Storytelling in the Global Age provides a new approach while uncovering ten myths of globalization. Each myth explores three storytelling layers, which are: narrative-counternarrative, Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWOK) living story, and antenarrative layers beneath. This book is useful for professionals and students within this field. (

Golowitsch, Helmut

Leopold Stocker Verlag, 2019

ISBN 978-3-7020-1804-7 | 2020-02-17 | 54 Geschichte

 2017 legte Dr. Helmut Golowitsch seine sensationelle Dokumentation 'Südtirol – Opfer für das westliche Bündnis' vor. Darin ergründete er anhand von Geheimdokumenten die Geschichte des 'Ausverkaufs' Südtirols an Italien nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges durch führende österreichische Bundespolitiker. 2019 erschien mit 'Südtirol – Opfer geheimer Parteipolitik' der Folgeband, in dem die Fortsetzung dieser Politik behandelt wurde, welche sich unter teilweiser Umgehung staatlicher Institutionen auf der Ebene geheimer Absprachen zwischen Politikern der ÖVP und der italienischen Democrazia Cristiana vollzog. In dem nun vorliegenden dritten Band 'Südtirol – Opfer politischer Erpressung' wird dargestellt und ausführlich dokumentiert, wie österreichische Bundesregierungen – vor allem unter Bundeskanzler Dr. Josef Klaus (ÖVP) – durch ein italienisches Veto gegen den Beitritt Österreichs zum gemeinsamen europäischen Markt erpresst wurden. Es kam zu beschämenden Dienstfertigkeiten gegenüber Rom, bis hin zu Rechtsbeugungen bei der Verfolgung exilierter Südtiroler, und zu einer weitgehenden politischen Kapitulation in der Frage der Absicherung des Autonomie-'Pakets'.

The corporate social responsibility agenda the case for sustainable and responsible business

Delbard, Olivier.

World Scientific, 2020

2020-02-21 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a buzzword in management today. And yet, skepticism often prevails, as CSR is often associated with traditional philanthropic practices enabling companies to greenwash their unethical social and environmental practices. This book offers a fresh view on today's CSR from both historical and geographical perspectives. Exploring its roots and theoretical developments in the US, the author then focuses on how CSR has spread across the world, first in Europe and later in the developing world. An updated overview of today's CSR agenda is provided with a focus on four key issues: stakeholder inclusion, employee engagement and social dialogue, human rights and environmental sustainability. With the support of multiple cases and examples taken from various continents and industries, the book adopts a sustainability-driven perspective, based on the belief that the future of CSR lies in the strategic embeddeness of key issues into the company's value chain. Finally, the book attempts to draw the contours of tomorrow's CSR by proposing a new terminology reflecting the current evolution of CSR. Contents: Towards CSR Embeddedness — From Theory to Practice The Stakeholder Challenge The 'Blind Spot' of CSR? Social Dialogue and Policies Human Rights and CSR — A Long Way to Go From CSR to Sustainability — Learning from Nature Tomorrow's CSR Agenda Readership: Business students (including both undergraduate and postgraduate), academics and general public interested in corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The costs of connection how data is colonizing human life and appropriating it for capitalism

Couldry, Nick

Stanford University Press, 2019

ISBN 978-1-5036-0366-0 | 2020-02-21 | 10 Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften

 The driving force behind The Costs of Connection is the idea that something big is happening with data, a new phase of colonial extraction that is annexing human life to capitalism and in the process building a new social economic order - one that must be resisted if human autonomy is to be protected.Just about any social need is now met with an opportunity to "connect" through digital means. But this convenience is not free-it is purchased with vast amounts of personal data transferred through shadowy backchannels to corporations using it to generate profit. The Costs of Connection uncovers this process, this "data colonialism," and its designs for controlling our lives-our ways of knowing; our means of production; our political participation. Colonialism might seem like a thing of the past, but this book shows that the historic appropriation of land, bodies, and natural resources is mirrored today in this new era of pervasive datafication. Apps, platforms, and smart objects capture and translate our lives into data, and then extract information that is fed into capitalist enterprises and sold back to us. The authors argue that this development foreshadows the creation of a new social order emerging globally-and it must be challenged. Confronting the alarming degree of surveillance already tolerated, they offer a stirring call to decolonize the internet and emancipate our desire for connection. (

The loop approach how to transform your organization from the inside out

Klein, Sebastian

Campus Verlag, 2019

ISBN 978-3-593-51120-7 | 2020-02-19 | 13 Betriebswirtschaft

 How best to adapt established companies to a rapidly changing economy has long been a topic of debate in both the corporate and academic worlds. This challenge is especially pressing for large organizations that may have grown top-heavy and rigid with time but now need to be light on their feet to stay relevant and profitable. Until now, the best attempts have consisted of plucking tools and methods from the world of start-ups and applying them wholesale in large corporate environments. Most of these efforts have either fizzled or failed outright because they lacked a framework for a comprehensive corporation-sized rollout. 'The Loop Approach' introduces a new series of methods that could help change the course of operations for even the most colossal organizations. Sebastian Klein and Ben Hughes provide a wide-ranging set of guidelines for achieving corporate agility, complete with checklists and worksheets that should prove instantly applicable. Want proof? The methods outlined in 'The Loop Approach' have already been successfully implemented at such European corporate giants as Audi, Deutsche Bahn, and Telekom. (

 'How do a passion to create an education revolution and the business acumen to fuel rapid and spectacular global expansion co-exist within one organisation? Find out in The MindChamps Way In his latest insightful study of strategy and leadership, Joseph Michelli, shares the unique philosophy and the values-driven strategies of a dynamic organization, whose growing presence on the world stage has the potential to fundamentally shape the future of individuals, families, communities, countries, and education systems across the globe. The MindChamps Way demonstrates how combining a strong, big-picture philosophy with a carefully planned and executed business strategy can inspire staff, clients and an unlikely range of interested stakeholders. Read how: transformational leadership strategies and a values-driven philosophy can catapult an organization to international prominence in a surprisingly short time-frame. MindChamps unique mantra of 100% Respect, Zero Fear has enabled a creative organization to break with conventional ways of operating to take the road less traveled in an industry not noted for its willingness to innovate.

 The New Structural Social Work presents a coherent and consistent theory of progressive social work. With oppression as its central focus, the text demonstrates the shortcoming of welfare capitalism as a social system and how conventional social work fails to respond to systemic social problems.

The politics of method in the human sciences positivism and its epistemological others

Duke University Press, 2005

ISBN 978-0-8223-3518-4 | 2020-02-21 | 09 Politikwissenschaft

 The Politics of Method in the Human Sciences provides a remarkable comparative assessment of the variations of positivism and alternative epistemologies in the contemporary human sciences. Often declared obsolete, positivism is alive and well in a number of the fields; in others, its influence is significantly diminished. The essays in this collection investigate its mutations in form and degree across the social science disciplines. Looking at methodological assumptions field by field, individual essays address anthropology, area studies, economics, history, the philosophy of science, political science and political theory, and sociology. Essayists trace disciplinary developments through the long twentieth century, focusing on the decades since World War II. Contributors explore and contrast some of the major alternatives to positivist epistemologies, including Marxism, psychoanalysis, poststructuralism, narrative theory, and actor-network theory. Almost all the essays are written by well-known practitioners of the fields discussed. Some essayists approach positivism and anti-positivism via close readings of texts influential in their respective disciplines. Some engage in ethnographies of the present-day human sciences; others are more historical in method. All of them critique contemporary social scientific practice. Together, they trace a trajectory of thought and method running from the past through the present and pointing toward possible futures. Contributors.

The quantified self a sociology of self-tracking

Lupton, Deborah

Polity, 2016

ISBN 978-1-5095-0059-8 | 2020-02-18 | 05 Psychologie

 With the advent of digital devices and software, self-tracking practices have gained new adherents and have spread into a wide array of social domains. The Quantified Self movement has emerged to promote 'self-knowledge through numbers'. In this groundbreaking book Deborah Lupton critically analyses the social, cultural and political dimensions of contemporary self-tracking and identifies the concepts of selfhood and human embodiment and the value of the data that underpin them. The book incorporates discussion of the consolations and frustrations of self-tracking, as well as about the proliferating ways in which people's personal data are now used beyond their private rationales. Lupton outlines how the information that is generated through self-tracking is taken up and repurposed for commercial, governmental, managerial and research purposes. In the relationship between personal data practices and big data politics, the implications of self-tracking are becoming ever more crucial. (

Ehrenfeld, John

Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2020

ISBN 978-0-367-24425-5 | 2020-02-24 | 04 Philosophie

 In this ground-breaking book, pre-eminent thought leader in the fields of sustainability and flourishing, John R. Ehrenfeld, critiques the concept of sustainability as it is understood today and which is coming more and more under attack as unclear and ineffective as a call for action. Building upon the recent work of cognitive scientist, Iain McGilchrist, who argues that the human brain's two hemispheres present distinct different worlds, this book articulates how society must replace the current foundational left-brain-based beliefs - a mechanistic world and a human driven by self interest - with new ones based on complexity and care. Flourishing should replace the lifeless metrics now being used to guide business and government, as well as individuals. Until we accept that our modern belief structure is, itself, the barrier, we will continue to be mired in an endless succession of unsolved problems. (

 It is widely accepted that innovation holds the key to sustainable commercial growth globally, but in practice there is limited understanding of how to successfully exploit its full commercial and social value. The Scale-up Manual provides a unified approach to manage the creation and commercialisation of innovative products and services, enabled by four data-driven building blocks: the Triple Chasm Model, modified commercialisation readiness levels, meso-economic vectors and the commercialisation canvas. The approach supports different strategies for resource allocation, ranging from 'lean' techniques to sustainability initiatives based on the circular economy. The Manual includes many case studies and insights, which different 'Actors' can use at different points along the commercialisation journey. (

ISBN 978-3-99046-433-5 | 2020-02-14 | 10 Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften

 Wir helfen, begleiten, pflegen, erziehen und unterstützen. Das Sorgen um andere ist fester Bestandteil unserer menschlichen Existenz. Viele leisten sie gratis, andere in Form von Lohnarbeit: Ein Großteil der sorgenden Arbeit wird in Österreich von Frauen verrichtet. Der Sozial- und Pflegebereich sowie der unsichtbare Bereich der Hausarbeit sind weiblich. Und schlechter oder gar nicht bezahlt. Das Buch beleuchtet mit unterschiedlichen Reportagen Seiten der Sorgearbeit, die bislang nur wenig Beachtung fanden. Unter anderem beschäftigt sich Sibylle Hamann mit der Frage, ob die Niederlande ein nachhaltiges Pflegemodell gefunden haben. Manuela Tomic begleitet eine Familienhelferin in ihrem Arbeitsalltag, und Benjamin Breitegger schaut sich den Verein Poika an, der gendersensible Workshops für Kinder anbietet. (

Why aren't they theré the political representation of women, ethnic groups and issue positions in legislatures

Ruedin, Didier

ECPR Press, 2013

 Why Aren't They Theré comparatively analyzes the representation of women over time and presents a critical view of the effectiveness of quotas. Incorporating new research on ethnic groups in legislatures, the text takes a significant step forward in the study of political representation and systematically examines issue positions in eight policy domains. It examines aspects that are not broached in studies focusing solely on a single form of representation. The result is a comprehensive understanding of political representation that leads to significant, policy-relevant insights on electoral engineering. (

 Success in science depends nowadays on effective communication in English. This workbook is specifically designed to give under- and post-graduates confidence in writing scientific English. Examples and exercises show how to avoid common errors and how to rephrase and improve scientific texts. The generation of a model manuscript enables the reader to recognise how scientific English is constructed and how to follow the conventions of scientific writing. Guidelines for structuring written work and vocabulary lists will encourage young scientists to develop a concise and mature style.
