  3. Family practices in later life

    Chambers, Pat; Allan, Graham; Phillipson, Chris; Ray, Mo
    There is no shortage of political and moral commentary on family life. Frequently the underlying theme of these commentaries is the decline of contemporary family commitment, particularly when older people's family experiences are the focus. "Family Practices in Later Life" challenges many common stereotypes about the nature of family involvement as people age. The book explores diversity and change in the family relationships older people maintain, looking at how family relationships are constructed and organised in later life. It recognises that the emerging patterns are a consequence of the choices and decisions negotiated within family networks, emphasising older people's agency...

    Ray, Mo; Phillips, Judith
    Revised to emphasise the current policy drive towards personalisation and service user participation in care management, the new edition of Social Work with Older People remains an insightful introductory text.

  7. An introduction to criminological theory and the problem of causation

    Warr, Jason
    This text offers a novel contribution to the literature on core criminological theory by introducing the complex issues relating to the structuring and analysing of causation. This text traces the paradigm shift, or drift, that has occurred in the history of criminology and shows how the problem of causation has been a leading factor in these theoretical developments. This short book is the first of its kind and is an introductory text designed to introduce both seasoned criminologists as well as students of criminology to the interesting intersections between the fields of criminology and the philosophy of the social sciences. The...

  8. Photography in the middle: dispatches on media ecologies and aesthetics

    Lockwood, Dean; Coley, Rob
    It’s easy to forget there’s a war on when the front line is everywhere encrypted in plain sight. Gathered in this book’s several chapters are dispatches on the role of photography in a War Universe, a space and time in which photographers such as Hilla Becher, Don McCullin and Eadweard Muybridge exist only insofar as they are a mark of possession, in the sway of larger forces. These photographers are conceptual personae that collectively fabulate a different kind of photography, a paraphotography in which the camera produces negative abyssal flashes or ‘endarkenment’. In his Vietnam War memoir, Dispatches, Michael Herr...

  9. The origin of Roman London

    Wallace, Lacey
    In this book Dr Wallace makes a fundamental contribution to the study of urbanism in the Roman provinces. She attempts for the first time to present a detailed archaeological account of the first decade of one of the best-excavated cities in the Roman Empire. Delving into the artefact and structural reports from all excavations of pre-Boudican levels in London, she brings together vast quantities of data which are discussed and illustrated according to a novel methodology that address both the difficulties and complexity of 'grey literature' and urban excavation.

  10. Theatre, performance and design: scenographies in a modernizing Ireland

    O'Gorman, Siobhán
    Theatre, Performance and Design: Scenographies in a Modernizing Ireland contributes to international scholarship in two key ways. Firstly, it proposes recently expanded understandings of scenography as frameworks for uncovering more holistic theatre and performance histories, providing a model for further-reaching genealogies of contemporary practice. Secondly, it contributes to the global field of Irish Studies by offering the first major study of scenography in relation to Irish theatre, a field in which literary critiques have, until recently, dominated historiography. As such, it satisfies an urgent need to account for Irish theatre and performance design, in addition to addressing gaps in the...

  11. Global dynamics in travel, tourism, and hospitality

    Pappas, Nikolaos; Bregoli, Ilenia
    Worldwide, tourism is the third largest economic activity in direct earnings after petroleum and automobile industries, and by far the largest one if indirect earnings are also taken into consideration. Taking into account the profound economic impact the tourism and hospitality industries can have on regions and cities around the world, further research in this area is critical. Global Dynamics in Travel, Tourism, and Hospitality takes a holistic approach to tourism and hospitality operations, education, and research. Highlighting the latest research in the field, real-world examples of how these industries are shaping economic development as well as future outlooks and opportunities...

  12. Legal research methodologies in EU and international law

    Hervey, Tamara; Cryer, Robert; Sokhi-Bulley, Bal; Bohm, Alexandra
    “Why do I need theory – my PhD is complex enough without it?” “Where can I find ideas about what to do to solve my research problems?” “I’m not a theorist – what’s the point in theory unless it is useful for my specific research project?” “What is a (legal) research methodology anyway?” “How can I help my PhD students to devise and successfully complete their PhD projects?” PhD students and their supervisors (including those in Law Schools) often ask these kinds of questions. Our aim in this book is to present a practical and theoretically informed approach to grappling with such questions, for those...

  13. A stakeholder approach to managing food: local, national and global issues

    Hingley, Martin; Lindgreen, Adam; Angell, Robert; Memery, Juliet; Vanhamme, Joëlle
    This research anthology explores the concept of food production and supply, from farm gate to plate, bringing together contemporary thinking and research on local, national, and global issues from a stakeholder perspective. A Stakeholder Approach to Managing Food includes a number of sections to represent these challenges, opportunities, conflicts, and cohesions affecting relevant stakeholder groups within food production and supply and their reaction to, engagement with, and co-creation of the food environment. For some, local, national, and global interests may seem at odds. We are in an era of growing and pervasive multi-national corporations, and these corporations have significant influence...

  14. History through material culture

    Hannan, Leonie; Longair, Sarah
    This book provides a practical introduction for researchers who wish to use objects and material culture as primary sources for the study of the past. The book focuses primarily on the period 1500 to the present day, but the principles put forward are equally applicable to studies of earlier historical eras. Histories of the last five centuries have been driven to a remarkable extent by textual records and it is with this in mind that Researching Objects & Material Culture offers researchers a step-by-step guide to approaching the material evidence that survives from this period. Anticipating that many researchers will...

  15. Critical issues in social work with older people

    Ray, Mo; Bernard, Miriam; Phillips, Judith
    This timely text highlights the importance of informed and critical practice in social work with older people. With an emphasis on reflection throughout, it argues for the need to rethink how social workers support some of the most vulnerable people in society. The text begins with an exploration of the relationship between gerontology, the study of aging, and social work, and demonstrates that a gerontological approach has long been missing from social work practice. The central chapters consider key issues affecting older people and social work practice, such as: • risk of poverty • memory loss and dementia • palliative and end...

  16. Curating empire: museums and the British imperial experience

    Longair, Sarah; McAleer, John
    Curating empire explores the diverse roles played by museums and their curators in moulding and representing the British imperial experience. This collection demonstrates how individuals, their curatorial practices, and intellectual and political agendas influenced the development of a variety of museums across the globe. Taken together, these contributions suggest that museums are not just sites for accessing history but need to be considered as historical sites of significance in themselves. Individual essays examine the work of curators in museums in Britain and the colonies, the historical display and interpretation of empire in Britain, and the establishment of 'museum networks' in...

  17. Theorizing social change in post-Soviet countries: critical approaches

    Amsler, Sarah; Sanghera, Balihar; Yarkova, Tatiana
    The book traces three main approaches to the sociology of post-Soviet societies: studies guided by neoliberal theory and/or practice; work which may be termed neoconservative in orientation, and which is often a response to the first; and a third type of work that is considered both critical and reflexive, and which seeks to transcend the limitations of the other approaches. The book is divided into three parts, addressing polity, culture and economy. In each section, authors endeavour to transcend both neoliberalism and neoconservatism, and reach for a third approach, ‘critical social science’. This is a broad movement, and the authors...

  18. The future of university education

    Izak, Michal; Kostera, Monika; Zawadzki, Michal
    This collected volume of essays offers glimpses of the future of university education. While universities consider the spirit of theoretical exchange and intellectual pursuit to be a defining trait of their identity, this book argues that this heritage is disappearing under the influence of the short-term demands of societies and markets. Universities used to be sites of dissent, civil courage and societal conscience, but have now instead become little more than pseudo-businesses, rendering them incapable of remaining critical or independent. However, with more people going to university every year, there is a strong resistance to the notion that the university...

  19. Cracks in the dome: fractured histories of empire in the Zanzibar Museum, 1897–1964

    Longair, Sarah
    As one of the most monumental and recognisable landmarks from Zanzibar’s years as a British Protectorate, the distinctive domed building of the Zanzibar Museum (also known as the Beit al-Amani or Peace Memorial Museum) is widely known and familiar to Zanzibaris and visitors alike. Yet the complicated and compelling history behind its construction and collection has been overlooked by historians until now. Drawing on a rich and wide range of hitherto unexplored archival, photographic, architectural and material evidence, this book is the first serious investigation of this remarkable institution. Although the museum was not opened until 1925, this book traces...

  20. The geography of environmental crime: conservation, wildlife crime and environmental activism

    Potter, Gary R.; Nurse, Angus; Hall, Matthew
    This book critically examines both theory and practice around conservation crimes. It engages with the full complexity of environmental crimes and different responses to them, including: poaching, conservation as a response to wildlife crime, forest degradation, environmental activism, and the application of scientific and situational crime prevention techniques as preventative tools to deal with green crime.
