1. Sexuality education in different contexts [special issue of Health Education] - Simovska, Venka; Kane, Ros
Purpose - Sexuality education is a controversial and contested issue that has evoked wide debate on the question of its aims, contents, methods, pedagogy and desired outcomes. This editorial aims to provide a brief commentary, positioning the contributions to this Special Issue of Health Education within the research landscape concerning sexuality education in schools internationally. Design/methodology/approach - The idea for this Special Issue was born in Odense, Denmark, in October 2012, during the 4th European Conference of Health Promoting Schools. The Conference Programme and the debates during the sessions demonstrated the need for a wider discussion of sexuality education, particularly...

2. Comics, the Holocaust and Hiroshima - Chapman, Jane; Ellin, Dan; Sherif, Adam
Comics, the Holocaust and Hiroshima breaks new ground by arguing that comics have a dual role as sources of cataclysm between 1939 and 1945. First for historians to gauge awareness of the Holocaust and second through close analysis, of Paroles d'Etoiles in Vichy France and Barefoot Gen in Hiroshima, as testimonies of childhood emotions, experiences and memories. Calling for an extension of the range of source material relating to persecution, genocide and the atomic bomb from 1939 to 1945, comics are posited as an agent to build on the scholarship of new cultural history, historiography, memory and trauma studies. These...

9. Promoting sustainable strategies for a resilient Asia Pacific - Byrd, Hugh; Knight-Lenihan, Stephen; Reeves, Dory
This project presents an integrated approach to evaluating the challenges facing urbanization in association with increasing population and decreasing per capita availability of resources, through the identification of various issues like: food security, density and intensification, alternative energy, impact on rural land resources, ecosystem planning and coastal tourism management. The following questions are used to guide the project. Can existing resources support increasing intensification and density? What is the potential for food production within this intensification and density? How will travel behaviour choices be affected? In the event of de-urbanization; Can rural land use capacity support an influx of urban immigrants? How can alternative technology in rural areas support energy supply?...

11. Democratising Higher Education: co-operative leadership and mass intellectuality - Hall, Richard; Winn, Joss
Higher education in the UK is in crisis. The idea of the public university is under assault, and both the future of the sector and its relationship to society are being gambled. Higher education is increasingly unaffordable, its historic institutions are becoming untenable, and their purpose is resolutely instrumental. What and who have led us to this crisis? What are the alternatives? To whom do we look for leadership in revealing those alternatives? This book brings together critical analyses of 'intellectual leadership' in the University, and documents on­going efforts from around the world to create alternative models for organising higher education...

12. The education of radical democracy - Amsler, Sarah
The Education of Radical Democracy explores why radical democracy is so necessary, difficult, and possible and why it is important to understand it as an educative activity . The book draws on critical social theory and critical pedagogy to explain what enables and sustains work for radical democratization, and considers how we can begin such work in neoliberal societies today. Exploring examples of projects from the nineteenth century to the present day, the book sheds light on a wealth of critical tools, research studies, theoretical concepts and practical methods. It offers a critical reading of the ‘crisis of hope’ in neoliberal...

13. Behavioural risks in corporate governance: regulatory intervention as a risk management mechanism - Okoye, Ngozi Vivian
Recent cases of corporate failures, including the fixing of LIBOR rates and money laundering issues in the banking industry highlight how behavioural issues on the part of company directors are significant contributory factors in corporate governance and the success or failure of companies. This book examines how personality and behavioural issues have contributed to major corporate failures, and how this risk may be managed. The book examines behavioural risks in corporate governance, and evaluates the extent to which risk management mechanisms have acknowledged various aspects of behaviour. Drawing from cases in the UK, the US and Australia and research in...

14. Nilpotent groups and their automorphisms - Khukhro, Evgeny I.
The fact that nilpotent groups are close to being commutative means that it is possible to apply linear methods to their study. In this volume, based on a special course given by the author at Novosibirsk University, Russia in 1988-1990, linear methods in the theory of nilpotent groups are applied to the study of automorphisms of nilpotent groups.

15. Password - Eve, Martin Paul
How many passwords do we have to memorize these days? Or more likely, how many passwords must we regularly reset and later be reminded of, only to be again forgotten, lost, or discarded, seemingly ad infinitum? Martin Paul Eve’s book takes up the lively history and thingliness of passwords, showing them to be pressing down on us and far more than just neutral gateways or drab data points. Touching on identity theft, the ‘strength’ of passwords, and behavior conditioning, Eve’s book gets into the inner workings of this quasi-object, showing how passwords are at once integral and abject parts of...

16. Ibid - Shepley, Alec
Ibid, the new book created by UK artist Alec Shepley works as a 'stand alone' work in its own right but also provides a record of his project by the same name, shown at Kuandu Museum of Fine Art, Taipei, 26 December 2014 - 16 February 2015. The installation referenced the idea of previous works and alluded to the artist as nomad, wandering through imaginary ruins and making humble and yet futile attempts to clean them such as the cleaners in 'Leonia' from Italo Calvino's 'Invisible Cities'. The book draws the imagined reader in and invites them on an existential...

17. Comics and the world wars: a cultural record - Chapman, Jane; Hoyles, Anna; Kerr, Andrew; Sherif, Adam
Comics and the World Wars argues for the use of comics as a primary source by offering a highly original argument that such examples produced during the World Wars act as a cultural record. Recuperating currently unknown or neglected strips, this work demonstrates how these can be used for the study of both world wars. Representing the fruits of over five years team research, this book reveals how sequential illustrated narratives used humour as a coping mechanism and a way to criticise authority, promoted certain forms of behaviour and discouraged others, represented a deliberately inclusive educational strategy for reading wartime...

19. Nanostructured soft matter: experiment, theory, simulation and perspectives - Zvelindovsky, Andrei

20. History-writing and violence in the medieval Mediterranean [special issue of Al-Masaq: Journal of the Medieval Mediterranean] - Liuzzo Scorpo, Antonella; Wood, Jamie
History-writing has often been preoccupied with the multiple shapes, forms and expressions of violence as a subject, while in some cases the rhetorical violence of some kinds of historical writing has been used as an instrument for the cultivation of power and authority. The deeds of great men and their conflicts, as well as divine intervention in the form of retribution and punishment and the moral lessons that could be drawn from such episodes were defining features of historical writing from its earliest days. The transformation of episodes of physical violence in the world into written form, not to mention...
