    Bush, Kenneth David

  3. Public policies, law and bioethics::a framework for producing public health policy across the European Union

    Shickle, Darren; Richardson, Erica; Day, Fiona; Munthe, Christian; Jovell, Albert; Gylling, Heta; Vos, Rein; Takala, Tuija; Petrini, Carlo; Torlone, G; Moran, Nicola Elizabeth; Holme, Ingrid; El-Arifi, Karen; Hunt, Adrienne; Griffin, Marcus; Coupland, Alex; Stroud, L
    Unlike the duties of clinicians to patients, professional standards for ethical practice are not well defined in public health. This is mainly due to public health practice having to reconcile tensions between public and private interest(s). This involves at times being paternalistic, while recognising the importance of privacy and autonomy, and at the same time balancing the interests of some against those of others. The Public Health specialist operates at the macro level, frequently having to infer the wishes and needs of individuals that make up a population and may have to make decisions where the interests of people conflict....

  4. First-Degree Incest and the Hebrew Bible: Sex in the Family

    Stiebert, J
    'Incest' refers to illegal sexual relations between family members. Its precise contours, however, are culturally specific. Hence, an illegal incestuous union in one social context may be a legal close-kin union in another. First-degree sexual unions, between a parent and child, or between siblings, are most widely prohibited and abhorred. This book discusses all overt and covert first-degree incest relations in the Hebrew Bible and also probes the significance of gaps and what these imply about projected sexual and social values. As the dominant opinion on the origin of first-degree incest continues to be shaped, new voices such as those...

  5. Christianity and Controversies over Homosexuality in Contemporary Africa

    ssues of homosexuality are the subject of public and political controversy in many African societies today. Frequently, these controversies receive widespread attention both locally and globally, such as with the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda. In the international media, these cases tend to be presented as revealing a deeply-rooted homophobia in Africa fuelled by religious and cultural traditions. But so far little energy is expended in understanding these controversies in all their complexity and the critical role religion plays in them. Complementing the companion volume, Public Religion and the Politics of Homosexuality in Africa, this book investigates Christian politics and discourses...

  10. Thanatourism and Cinematic Representations of Risk: Screening the End of Tourism

    Tzanelli, R
    In today’s world, the need to eliminate natural and human-made disasters has been at the forefront of national and international socio-political agendas. The management of risks such as terrorism, labour strikes, protests and environmental degradation has become pivotal for countries that depend on their economy’s tourist sector. Indeed, there is fear that that ‘the end of tourism’ might be nigh due to inadequate institutional foresight. Yet, in designing relevant policies to tackle this, arts such as that of filmmaking have yet to receive due consideration. This book adopts an unorthodox approach to debates about ‘the end of tourism’. Through twenty-first...

  11. Languages and languaging in deaf education: A framework for pedagogy

    Swanwick, RA
    This text addresses two main questions about deaf children’s language and learning. The first of these is concerned with how we understand and describe deaf children’s language use and experience in terms of current concepts of language plurality and diversity. The second asks how knowledge of, and a different perspective on, deaf children’s language diversity and pluralism can inform pedagogy. The text reviews the knowledge available about deaf children’s bimodal bilingualism and learning and extends this knowledge to embrace deaf children’s multilingual language experiences and lives. This review raises questions about how well we understand the diverse and plural language...

  14. War Reporters Under Threat: The United States and Media Freedom

    Paterson, CA
    War Reporters Under Threat describes the threat of violence facing war reporters from the United States government and some of its closest allies. Chris Paterson argues that what should have been the lesson for the press following the invasion of Iraq – that they will be treated instrumentally by the US government – has been mostly ignored. As a result, even nominally democratic states cannot be counted upon to protect journalists in conflict, and urgent reform of legal protections for journalists is required. War Reporters Under Threat combines critical scholarship with original investigation to assess the impact of the US...

  15. Benign Violence: Education in and beyond the Age of Reason

    Allen, A.
    Education is a violent act, yet this violence is concealed by its good intent. Education presents itself as a distinctly improving, enabling practice. Even its most radical critics assume that education is, at core, an incontestable social good. Setting education in its political context, this book, now in paperback, offers a history of good intentions, ranging from the birth of modern schooling and modern examination, to the rise (and fall) of meritocracy. In challenging all that is well-intentioned in education, it reveals how our educational commitments are always underwritten by violence. Our highest ideals have the lowest origins. Seeking to unsettle a...

  16. Rocket States: Atomic Weaponry and the Cultural Imagination

    Collignon, F.
    Federal state performs a 'vital' function in the nuclear arms development, an analysis of its composite parts and 'immense texturology' requires tactics, trajectories that seek to pit themselves against the 'amazing invisibility' of the bomb.

  17. Diasporic Agencies: Mapping the City Otherwise

    Awan, N.
    Diasporic Agencies addresses the neglected subject of how architecture and urban design can respond to the consequences of increasing migration. Arguing that diasporic inhabitations can only be understood as the co-production of space, subjectivity and politics, the book explores questions of difference, belonging and movement in the city. Through focusing on a series of examples, it reveals how diasporas produce new types of spaces and develop new subjectivities in the contemporary European metropolis. It explores the way in which geo-politics affects individual lives and how national and regional borders inscribe themselves onto diasporic bodies. The book claims that the multiple...

  18. Representations of EU Citizenship since 1951

    Pukallus, S

  19. Rethinking Biblical Literacy

    What do people know about the Bible, and how much do they know? The media often discusses the worrying 'decline' in biblical literacy, but what does this really mean, and how can we measure this assumed 'decline'? How can we go about teaching 'biblical literacy', and about teaching teachers how to teach it? Rethinking Biblical Literacy explores the question of biblical literacy, examining the Bible's use, influence and impact in advertising, street art, poetry, popular erotic literature, Irish and UK secondary education, stand-up comedy and The Simpsons TV series to display the different types of literacy and knowledge of the Bible....
