Women

Author: Bernard Chapin
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9780595443604
Release Date: 2007-09
Genre: Social Science

In Women: Theory and Practice, Bernard Chapin challenges the accepted theories of feminism and sexual equality in this thought-provoking, revolutionary look at the battle of the sexes in the twenty-first century. This book captures the true essence of today's apocryphal gap between men and women and how it affects not only the workplace, but also romantic relationships and the interactions of men and women everywhere. Chapin introduces a truly contrarian argument against society's current atmosphere of political correctness. He also makes a convincing case for the hidden damage caused by the women's movement and the popular mindset that women are no longer just the fairer sex, they are the better sex. Chapin questions the rationale behind policies and laws created to protect women's rights and to construct equality in the workplace. Chapin describes society's current backlash against men and how it has created a culture that has wrongly declared women to be intellectually, morally, and emotionally superior. Women: Theory and Practice provides a clear, rational argument against a popular socio-political atmosphere that has turned women into demi-gods, and men into second class citizens.

Urban Wildlife Conservation

Author: Robert A. McCleery
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781489975003
Release Date: 2014-11-11
Genre: Science

In the past, wildlife living in urban areas were ignored by wildlife professionals and urban planners because cities were perceived as places for people and not for wild animals. Paradoxically, though, many species of wildlife thrive in these built environments. Interactions between humans and wildlife are more frequent in urban areas than any other place on earth and these interactions impact human health, safety and welfare in both positive and negative ways. Although urban wildlife control pest species, pollinate plants and are fun to watch, they also damage property, spread disease and even attack people and pets. In urban areas, the combination of dense human populations, buildings, impermeable surfaces, introduced vegetation, and high concentrations of food, water and pollution alter wildlife populations and communities in ways unseen in more natural environments. For these ecological and practical reasons, researchers and mangers have shown a growing interest in urban wildlife ecology and management. This growing interest in urban wildlife has inspired many studies on the subject that have yet to be synthesized in a cohesive narrative. Urban Wildlife: Theory and Practice fills this void by synthesizing the latest ecological and social knowledge in the subject area into an interdisciplinary and practical text. This volume provides a foundation for the future growth and understanding of urban wildlife ecology and management by: • Clearly defining th e concepts used to study and describe urban wildlife, • Offering a cohesive understanding of the coupled natural and social drivers that shape urban wildlife ecology, • Presenting the patterns and processes of wildlife response to an urbanizing world and explaining the mechanisms behind them and • Proposing means to create physical and social environments that are mutually beneficial for both humans and wildlife.

Consumer Brand Relationships

Author: Susan Fournier
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136470974
Release Date: 2012-03-29
Genre: Business & Economics

The creation and management of customer relationships is fundamental to the practice of marketing. Marketers have long maintained a keen interest in relationships: what they are, why they are formed, what effects they have on consumers and the marketplace, how they can be measured and when and how they evolve and decline. While marketing research has a long tradition in the study of business relationships between manufacturers and suppliers and buyers and sellers, attention in the past decade has expanded to the relationships that form between consumers and their brands (such as products, stores, celebrities, companies or countries). The aim of this book is to advance knowledge about consumer-brand relationships by disseminating new research that pushes beyond theory, to applications and practical implications of brand relationships that businesses can apply to their own marketing strategies. With contributions from an impressive array of scholars from around the world, this volume will provide students and researchers with a useful launch pad for further research in this blossoming area.

Theory and Practice

Author: J?rgen Habermas
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780745694184
Release Date: 2015-10-07
Genre: Political Science

Theory and Practice is one of Habermas's major works and is widely recognized as a classic in contemporary and social and political theory. Through a series of highly original historical studies, Habermas re-examines the relations between philosophy, science and politics. Beginning with the classical doctrine of politics as developed by Aristotle, he traces the changing constellation of theory and practice through the work of Machiavelli, More, Hobbes, Hegel and Marx. He argues that, with the development of the modern sciences, politics has become increasingly regarded as a technical discipline concerned with problems of prediction and control. Politics has thus lost its link with the practical cultivation of character, that is, with the praxis of enlightened citizens. Theory and Practices includes a major re-assessment of Marx's work and of the status of Marxism as a form of critique. In an important concluding chapter Habermas examines the role of reason and the prospects for critical theory in our modern scientific civilization.

Beyond Critique

Author: Pamela Fraser
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
ISBN: 9781501323454
Release Date: 2017-04-06
Genre: Art

Critique has long been a central concept within art practice and theory. Since the emergence of Conceptual Art, artists have been expected by critics, curators, and art school faculty to focus their work on exposing and debunking ideologies of power and domination. Recently, however, the effectiveness of cultural critique has come into question. The appearance of concepts such as the "speculative," the "reparative," and the "constructive" suggests an emerging postcritical paradigm. Beyond Critique takes stock of the current discourse around this issue. With some calling for a renewed criticality and others rejecting the model entirely, the book's contributors explore a variety of new and recently reclaimed criteria for contemporary art and its pedagogy. Some propose turning toward affect and affirmation; others seek to reclaim such allegedly discredited concepts as intimacy, tenderness, and spirituality. With contributions from artists, critics, curators and historians, this book provides new ways of thinking about the historical role of critique while also exploring a wide range of alternative methods and aspirations. Beyond Critique will be a crucial tool for students and instructors who are seeking to think and work beyond the critical.
