American Constitutional Law

Author: Donald P. Kommers
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
ISBN: 0742563685
Release Date: 2009-07
Genre: Law

American Constitutional Law: Essays, Cases, and Comparative Notes is a unique casebook that encourages citizens and students of the Constitution to think critically about the fundamental principles and policies of the American constitutional order. In addition to its distinguished authorship, the book has two prominent features that set it apart from other books in the field: an emphasis on the social, political, and moral theory that provides meaning to constitutional law and interpretation, and a comparative perspective that situates the American experience within a world context that serves as an invaluable prism through which to illuminate the special features of our own constitutional order. While the focus of the book is entirely on American constitutional law, the book asks students to consider what, if anything, is unique in American constitutional life and what we share with other constitutional democracies. Each chapter is preceded by an introductory essay that highlights these major themes and also situates the cases in their proper historical and political contexts. This new edition offers updated and expanded treatment of a number of important and timely topics including, the death penalty, privacy, affirmative action, and school segregation. Volume 2 of this text focuses on civil rights and basic freedoms and includes separate chapters on race and gender.

The Practice of Radiology Education

Author: Teresa van Deven
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3642032346
Release Date: 2009-10-13
Genre: Medical

The practice of radiology education: challenges and trends will provide truly helpful gu- ance for those of you involved in teaching and training in radiology. The goal of this book is ultimately to improve patient care. As a companion piece to the first book radiology education: the scholarship of teaching and learning, this book focuses on applying the concepts at a practical level that can be applied flexibly within educational programs for radiology residents and fellows in any medical imaging learning environment. This book focuses on the application of scholarship in terms of the “dissemination of useful, testable and reproducible information to others. ” It links educational theory with practice and for those of you who wish to explore educational practice further, a number of chapters s- gest additional readings and resources. The publication is timely and congruent with one of the most important twenty-first century trends in medical education: the move from amateurism to professionalism in teaching. In the past, medical schools and other health professions’ training institutions have been criticized for their resistance to the adoption of the science of medical edu- tion. Very few of us learned how to teach as medical students and most of us have our teaching responsibilities thrust on us with little preparation. The award of a basic medical degree was assumed to carry with it basic teaching expertise, unfortunately an unw- ranted assumption in some cases.

Scripts and Literacy

Author: I. Taylor
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401111621
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Literacy is a concern of all nations of the world, whether they be classified as developed or undeveloped. A person must be able to read and write in order to function adequately in society, and reading and writing require a script. But what kinds of scripts are in use today, and how do they influence the acquisition, use and spread of literacy? Scripts and Literacy is the first book to systematically explore how the nature of a script affects how it is read and how one learns to read and write it. It reveals the similarities underlying the world's scripts and the features that distinguish how they are read. Scholars from different parts of the world describe several different scripts, e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian Amerindian -- and how they are learned. Research data and theories are presented. This book should be of primary interest to educators and researchers in reading and writing around the world.

Behavioral Approaches to Crime and Delinquency

Author: Edward K. Morris
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461309031
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Psychology

The systematic application of behavioral psychology to crime and delinquency was begun only 20 years ago, yet it has already contributed significantly to our practical knowledge about prevention and correction and to our general under standing of a pressing social problem. In this handbook, we review and evalu ate what has been accomplished to date, as well as what is currently at the leading edge of the field. We do so in order to present a clear, comprehensive, and systematic view of the field and to promote and encourage still more effective action and social policy reform in the future. The chapters in this text have been written by professionals who were among the original innovators in applying behavioral psychology to crime and delinquency and who continue to make critical contributions to the field's progress, and by a new generation of energetic, young professionals who are taking the field in important and innovative directions. The contributors have attempted to review and evaluate their areas with critical dispassion, to pro vide thorough but not overly specialized discussion of their material, and to draw implications for how research, application, and social policy might be improved in the future. For our part as editors, we have tried to foster integra tion across the chapters and to provide background and conceptual material of our own.

Human Behavior in Military Contexts

Author: Committee on Opportunities in Basic Research
Publisher: National Academies Press
ISBN: 9780309112307
Release Date: 2008-01-03
Genre: Social Science

Human behavior forms the nucleus of military effectiveness. Humans operating in the complex military system must possess the knowledge, skills, abilities, aptitudes, and temperament to perform their roles effectively in a reliable and predictable manner, and effective military management requires understanding of how these qualities can be best provided and assessed. Scientific research in this area is critical to understanding leadership, training and other personnel issues, social interactions and organizational structures within the military. The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) asked the National Research Council to provide an agenda for basic behavioral and social research focused on applications in both the short and long-term. The committee responded by recommending six areas of research on the basis of their relevance, potential impact, and timeliness for military needs: intercultural competence; teams in complex environments; technology-based training; nonverbal behavior; emotion; and behavioral neurophysiology. The committee suggests doubling the current budget for basic research for the behavioral and social sciences across U.S. military research agencies. The additional funds can support approximately 40 new projects per year across the committee's recommended research areas. Human Behavior in Military Contexts includes committee reports and papers that demonstrate areas of stimulating, ongoing research in the behavioral and social sciences that can enrich the military's ability to recruit, train, and enhance the performance of its personnel, both organizationally and in its many roles in other cultures.
