In Citizenship and Advocacy in Technical Communication, teachers, researchers, and practitioners will find a variety of theoretical frameworks, empirical studies, and teaching approaches to advocacy and citizenship. Specifically, the collection is organized around three main themes or sections: considerations for understanding and defining advocacy and citizenship locally and globally, engaging with the local and global community, and introducing advocacy in a classroom. The collection covers an expansive breadth of issues and topics that speak to the complexities of undertaking advocacy work in TPC, including local grant writing activities, cosmopolitanism and global transnational rhetoric, digital citizenship and social media use, strategic and tactical communication, and diversity and social justice. The contributors themselves, representing fifteen academic institutions and occupying various academic ranks, offer nuanced definitions, frameworks, examples, and strategies for students, scholars, practitioners, and educators who want to or are already engaged in a variegated range of advocacy work. More so, they reinforce the inherent humanistic values of our field and discuss effective rhetorical and current technological tools at our disposal. Finally, they show us how, through pedagogical approaches and everyday mundane activities and practices, we (can) advocate either actively or passively.
Communicating Project Management argues that the communication practices of project managers have necessarily become participatory, made up of complex strategies and processes solidly grounded in rhetorical concepts. The book draws on case studies across organizational contexts and combines individual experiences to investigate how project management relies on communication as teams develop products, services, and internal processes. The case studies also provide examples of how project managers can be understood and studied as writers, further arguing project managers must approach communication as designed experience that must be intentionally inclusive. Author Benjamin Lauren illustrates to readers how teams work together to manage projects through complex coordinative communication practices, and highlights how project managers are constantly learning and evolving by analyzing where they succeed and fail. He concludes that technical and professional communicators have a pivotal role in supporting and facilitating participative approaches to communicating project management.
With this new edition, Science and Technical Writing confirms its position as the definitive style resource for thousands of established and aspiring technical writers. Editor Philip Rubens has fully revised and updated his popular 1992 edition, with full, authoritative coverage of the techniques and technologies that have revolutionized electronic communications over the past eight years.

In "Der Ungehorsam als ein psychologisches und ethisches Problem" stellt Fromm die Fähigkeit und Notwendigkeit zum Ungehorsam systematisch dar. Er verbindet dabei die Fähigkeit zum Ungehorsam mit seiner Lehre vom humanistischen Gewissen. Dieses legitimiert den Ungehorsam und stellt eine Gegenkraft zur autoritären Charakterorientierung dar, für die Gehorsam eine Haupttugend ist. Fromms Plädoyer für den Ungehorsam richtet sich aber nicht nur gegen alle Formen des Autoritarismus. Es geht darum, auch gegen das, was als gesunder Menschenverstand und als „völlig normal“ gilt, ungehorsam zu sein und als common non-sense und eine „Pathologie der Normalität“ anzusehen. Heute werden beispielweise die Selbstregulation des Marktes, der Wettbewerb, die Gewinnmaximierung, das endlose Wachstumsstreben oder technische Lösungen bei menschlichen Problemen als „völlig normal“ angesehen. Diesem common non-sense gegenüber gilt es ungehorsam zu sein, um den Menschen und das individuelle und soziale Wohl-Sein wieder zum Maßstab des wirtschaftlichen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Handelns zu machen.
