Global Future of Higher Education and the Academic Profession Palgrave Macmillan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Global Future of Higher Education and the Academic Profession focuses on the all-important emerging BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) nations by analyzing the academic profession and particularly salaries and contracts. The professoriate is key to the success of any academic system, and this is the first book - now in paperback - to carefully analyze academic systems and the academic profession. The academic profession must be adequately paid, and appointments to academic jobs must be based on merit and provide an effective career path for the 'best and brightest' to be attracted to the profession. The BRICs show a variety of approaches to academic careers-and none provide globally competitive salaries. China and Russia, in particular, pay academics poorly. Using purchasing power parity, this book is able to accurately compare the actual purchasing power of the academic profession. The book also analyzes how professors are appointed and promoted. While the BRICs may be emerging global economic powers, their academic systems still face significant challenges.

Predictive Power of Language Proficiency on Academic Achievement LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Tanzania, like many other multilingual communities globally, has not eluded the problem of Language of Instruction (LOI). As a result, nearly five decades, English, the LOI in secondary schools and high education, has been a scapegoat of many secondary school students academic failure. The book shows clearly that English Language Proficiency (ELP) predicts future academic success of students. However, the influence is not as great as the proponents of Kiswahili exaggerate it to be; this is to say, it is the non-ELP factors that affect performance greatly. The author therefore, concludes that the use of O- level and A-level secondary school results alone, as it is done in Tanzania and elsewhere, to predict one s capacity for secondary and higher education respectively is not enough since academic performance is an interplay of a number of factors. The book is invaluable for language teachers, teachers in training, University students,language policy makers and curriculum developers.

Phosphorus, Food, and Our Future Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Phosphorus is essential to all life. A critical component of fertilizers, Phosphorus currently has no known substitute in agriculture. Without it, crops cannot grow. With too much of it, waterways are polluted. Across the globe, social, political, and economic pressures are influencing the biogeochemical cycle of phosphorus. A better understanding of this non-renewable resource and its impacts on the environment is critical to conserving our global supply and increasing agricultural productivity. Most of the phosphorus-focused discussion within the academic community is highly fragmented. Phosphorus, Food, and Our Future will bring together the necessary multi-disciplinary perspectives to build a cohesive knowledge base of phosphorus sustainability. The book is a direct continuation of processes associated with the first international conference on sustainable phosphorus held in the United States, the Frontiers in Life Sciences: Sustainable Phosphorus Summit, though it is not a book of conference proceedings; rather, the book is part of an integrated, coordinated process that builds on the momentum of the Summit. The first chapter will introduce the biological and chemical necessity of phosphorus. The subsequent ten chapters will explore different facets of phosphorus sustainability and the role of policy on future global phosphorus supplies. The final chapter will synthesize all of the emerging views contained in the book, drawing out the leading dilemmas and opportunities for phosphorus sustainability.

Strategic Stability in the Post-Cold War World and the Future of Nuclear Disarmament Springer Netherlands

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The contributors to Strategic Stability in the Post-Cold War World and the Future of Nuclear Disarmament recognize that the collapse of the former Soviet Union has left a conceptual vacuum in the definition of a new world order. Never before have the components of world order all changed so rapidly, so deeply, or so globally. As Henry Kissinger points out, the emergence of a new world order will have to confront three fundamental questions: What are the basic units of the international order? What are their means of interacting? and What are the goals on behalf of which they interact? The main question is whether the establishment and maintenance of an international system will turn out to be a conscious design, or the outgrowth of a trial of strength. The concept of a planning framework that could shape or govern these interactions is emerging and may now be at hand. Capturing this emerging framework is the thrust of the present book, which seeks to reach a consensus on defining a model (calculus) for strategic stability in a changing, multipolar world in the presence of weapons of mass destruction - the model being the core of a conscious design to shape or govern the interactions of nation states in a new world order. The following taxonomy of the dimensions of strategic stability was accepted by the contributors as the first step towards such a model: Stability in geopolitics and balance of power; Arms race stability; Deterrence stability, crisis stability, first strike stability; Stability in the presence of clandestine proliferation. After four gruelling days, this unprecedented gathering of top academic, scientific and military experts from the USA, Russia, the UK, France, China, India, and Israel reached a general agreement that is captured in the Consensus Report; each participant presented an individual contribution that further fleshes out the dimensions of strategic stability. This unprecedented work provides joint concepts for all leaders of the nuclear powers to shape their decisions for the coming decades. And for the first time they can base their decisions on agreed scientific facts, not just political judgments.

Many analysts have heralded the U.S. military's Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) which offers an improvement in operational concepts and weapons that will transform the nature and character of warfare. It focuses on military technology, new sensor, surveillance, communications and computer technologies and developments in such fields as nanotechnology, robotics and genetic engineering that will greatly influence the new weapons of the 21st century. However, this book argues that talk about technological revolutions often ignores the role of military organisation in delivering combat capability. The author argues that the key to future combat effectiveness lies in an army's ability to invent, innovate and conduct operations effectively...Dr. Mandeles is a national security consultant with a long and distinguished career as a military academic and defence analyst. This is a practical and prescriptive textbook rather than a merely analytical study.

Derrida and the Future of the Liberal Arts Bloomsbury Academic

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Derrida and the Future of the Liberal Arts highlights the Derridean assertion that the university must exist 'without condition' - as a bastion of intellectual freedom and oppositional activity whose job it is to question mainstream society. Derrida argued that only if the life of the mind is kept free from excessive corporate influence and political control can we be certain that the basic tenets of democracy are being respected within the very societies that claim to defend democratic principles. This collection contains eleven essays drawn from international scholars working in both the humanities and social sciences, and makes a well-grounded and comprehensive case for the importance of Derridean thought within the liberal arts today. Written by specialists in the fields of philosophy, literature, history, sociology, geography, political science, animal studies, and gender studies, each essay traces deconstruction's contribution to their discipline, explaining how it helps keep alive the 'unconditional', contrapuntal mission of the university. The book offers a forceful and persuasive corrective to the current assault on the liberal arts.
