International Handbook of Interpretation in Educational Research Springer Netherlands
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This handbook focuses on the often neglected dimension of interpretation in educational research. It argues that all educational research is in some sense interpretive , and that understanding this issue belies some usual dualisms of thought and practice, such as the sharp dichotomy between qualitative and quantitative research. Interpretation extends from the very framing of the research task, through the sources which constitute the data, the process of their recording, representation and analysis, to the way in which the research is finally or provisionally presented. The thesis of the handbook is that interpretation cuts across the fields (both philosophically, organizationally and methodologically).§§By covering a comprehensive range of research approaches and methodologies, the handbook gives (early career) researchers what they need to know in order to decide what particular methods can offer for various educational research contexts/fields. An extensive overview includes concrete examples of different kinds of research (not limited for example to teaching and learning examples as present in the Anglo-Saxon tradition, but including as well what in the German Continental tradition is labelled pädagogisch , examples from child rearing and other contexts of non-formal education) with full description and explanation of why these were chosen in particular circumstances and reflection on the wisdom or otherwise of the choice combined in each case with consideration of the role of interpretation in the process.§§The handbook includes examples of a large number of methods traditionally classified as qualitative, interpretive and quantitative used across the area of the study of education. Examples are drawn from across the globe, thus exemplifying the different opportunities and constraints that educational research has to confront in different societies.§

Fusion Economics PALGRAVE MACMILLAN
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
In Fusion Economics, author Laurence Brahm explores how the world's social economies can come together to lift the world out of poverty. He approaches economics from a social science angle, drawing on the principles of social entrepreneurship instead of the more technical aspects of mathematical econ. Though the subject matter might initially seem complex, Fusion Economics takes the form of a narrative travelogue and as such serves as an accessible treatise on social economics. In the book, Brahm travels from the US to China and through Asia where he sees a transformation taking place before his eyes - developing nations creating an economic marketplace from the bottom up, incorporating the best and most effective elements from each system (capitalism, socialism, and communism) and, in turn, influencing the existing political models in place in these countries. Social entrepreneurs, activists, and NGOs in the BRIC countries have already started driving this new global consensus, and according to Brahm we must continue to challenge our values and change our economic organization if we are to achieve peace and prosperity in the future. Brahm takes readers through various case-studies and real-world examples of sensible, holistic economic policy that responds to conditions on the ground rather than imposing a theory or ideology that may not match up with what people actually need. People in the street, Brahm writes, may have clearer answers than the economists in multilateral institutions coming to advise them. They don't need, and will likely be hurt by, models cooked up by outsiders in ivory tower university classrooms or sterile think tanks. Brahm illustrates this point by recounting stories from his travels around the world; he describes local wisdom, grassroots activism, and stories of successful, bottom-up economic policy formation. And his case studies do come together to illustrate how local wisdom often really does know best, whether one lives in a corrugated hut in Bangladesh, a working class apartment in Athens or a suburban ghetto in Detroit. Looking within one's country, neighborhood and culture is the first step, Brahm writes, to a suitable and sustainable economic policy. The book brings a human dimension to big ideas. Brahm tells his tale as a journey across continents, giving readers a glimpse of what it's like to be on the inside, as a witness to history and social change. Brahm uses straightforward language to demolish ivory tower edifices of theory. He shows ordinary people that they don't need a PhD to understand economics; that common sense is enough. With economic issues at the forefront of news and commentary, this is a powerful message. For America, this book is particularly timely. In his last State of the Union Address, President Obama outlined the perils of climate change and the need for green growth to create jobs in America. Moreover, he noted that China is already driving ahead of America on green economics. As one of it's top initiator, Brahm can explain China's green growth blueprint and explain how America can do it even better, by leading with research and development and then scaling it commercially.

Good Lawyer Oxford University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Every lawyer wants to be a good lawyer. They want to do right by their clients, contribute to the professional community, become good colleagues, interact effectively with people of all persuasions, and choose the right cases. All of these skills and behaviors are important, but they spring from hard-to-identify foundational qualities necessary for good lawyering. After focusing for three years on getting high grades and sharpening analytical skills, far too many lawyers leave law school without a real sense of what it takes to be a good lawyer. In The Good Lawyer, a follow up to their book The Happy Lawyer, law professors Douglas O. Linder and Nancy Levit combine evidence from the latest social science research with numerous engaging accounts of able attorneys at work to explain just what makes a good lawyer. They organize the book around the qualities they see as crucial: courage, empathy, integrity, realism, a strong sense of justice, clarity of purpose, and an ability to transcend emotionalism. But as the authors point out, each one must be apportioned in the right measure, and achieving the right balance is difficult. Lawyers need to know when to empathize and also when to detach; courage without an appreciation of consequences becomes recklessness. And what do you do in tricky situations, where the urge to deceive is high? How can you maintain focus through a mind-taxing (or mind-numbing) project? Every lawyer faces these problems at some point - they're inherent in the nature of the work-but if properly recognized and approached, they can be overcome. It's not easy being good - quality is less something one grasps and hangs onto than a goal that requires constant striving and attention - but this engaging guide will serve as a handbook for any lawyer trying not only to figure out how to respond to difficult situations, but how to become a better - meaning both more competent and more virtuous - lawyer.
