When the butterfly-winged light being, Rainyun, descends from the Ephemerine Realm into the Density Domain to assist in shifting a planet into a more positive probability vector in a higher dimension, the young teenural girl, Eda, is swept into a fast-paced adventurous quest that involves strange planets in the past, an anti-particle universe, her reciprocal twin, her higher Consciousness Field and especially, trees. Join Eda as she discovers parts of herself in Realms, Domains, healing stations and flowers, whilst Rainyun guides her along, deftly dealing with motorbikes, duck pond portals, hotel bills, interplanetary travel, camping, an ancient yogi, canyons and supporting Matt in regaining his incarnational memory, all in her usual simultaneous multi-task style. Can they plant the seed before the planet runs out of its potrilion resources? Can the peace between the unitruvials and binurals be preserved? What will the magnificent Ephemerine Tree look like and what changes will it initiate on planet Artea? A fun-filled but thoughtful fantasy audiobook, incorporating New-Age, Law of One, Positive Thinking, Law of Attraction, Environmentalist, Hidden History and Quantum Physics ideas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amber Beard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/redp/000028/bk_redp_000028_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Borderlands and Frontiers in Africa
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume addresses the marked influence borders and boundaries, whether real or imaginary, have on the lives of those inhabiting the borderland. How do political and symbolic borders take concrete shape, and how do they bear on daily life? Conversely, how does life in the borderland shape the borders that characterize it? This volume understands borderlands as shifting places, times or domains where competing discourses and regimes of power overlap. Characterized by overt contradiction and paradox, they are often imagined at the outside. Yet, they pertain to and define the centre. The case studies collected here challenge the assumption that states and anonymized institutions are the principal actors in border-making. Instead, they argue for an actor-oriented perspective while drawing attention to the 'physicality' of the borderscape. Contributors: Laura E. Bleckmann, Mark Breusers, Ira Dworkin, Paul Enzlin, Tammary Esho, Els Hoorelbeke, Gillian Mathys, Ana Cristina Roque, Steven Van Wolputte, Eline Versluys.

Contrary to earlier views of preindustrial Europe as an essentially sedentary society, research over the past decades has amply demonstrated that migration was a pervasive characteristic of early modern Europe. In this volume, the theme of urban migration is explored through a series of historical contexts, journeying from sixteenth-century Antwerp, Ulm, Lille and Valenciennes, through seventeenth-century Berlin, Milan and Rome, to eighteenth-century Strasbourg, Trieste, Paris and London. Each chapter demonstrates how the presence of diverse and often temporary groups of migrants was a core feature of everyday urban life, which left important marks on the demographic, economic, social, political, and cultural characteristics of individual cities. The collection focuses on the interventions by urban authorities and institutions in a wide-ranging set of domains, as they sought to stimulate, channel and control the newcomers' movements and activities within the cities and across the cities' borders. While striving for a broad geographical and chronological coverage in a comparative perspective, the volume aims to enhance our insight into the different factors that shaped urban migration policies in different European settings west of the Elbe. By laying bare the complex interactions of actors, interests, conflicts, and negotiations involved in the regulation of migration, the case studies shed light on the interrelations between burghership, guilds, relief arrangements, and police in the incorporation of newcomers and in shaping the shifting boundaries between wanted and unwanted migrants. By relating to a common analytical framework, presented in the introductory chapter, they engage in a comparative discussion that allows for the formulation of general insights and the identification of long term transformations that transcend the time and place specificities of the case studies in question. The introduction and final chapters connect insights derived from the individual case-study chapters to present wide ranging conclusions that resonate with both historical and present-day debates on migration.

The Applied Ethics of Emerging Military and Sec...
277,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The essays in this volume illustrate the difficult real world ethical questions and issues arising from accelerating technological change in the military and security domains, and place those challenges in the context of rapidly shifting geopolitical and strategic frameworks. Specific technologies such as autonomous robotic systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, cybersecurity and cyberconflict, and biotechnology are highlighted, but the essays are chosen so that the broader implications of fundamental systemic change are identified and addressed. Additionally, an important consideration with many of these technologies is that even if they are initially designed and intended for military or security applications, they inevitably spread to civil society, where their application may raise very different ethical questions around such core values as privacy, security from criminal behaviour, and state police power. Accordingly, this volume is of interest to students of military or security domains, as well as to those interested in technology and society, and the philosophy of technology.

Transforming Public Leadership for the 21st Cen...
44,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The forces of globalization are shifting our world, including the public sector, away from hierarchy and command and control toward one of collaboration and networks. The way public leadership is thought about and practiced must be, and is being, transformed. This volume in the 'Transformational Trends in Governance & Democracy' series explores what the shift looks like and also offers guidance on what it should look like. Specifically, the book focuses on the role of 'career leaders' - those in public service - who are agents of change not only in their own organizations, but also in their communities and policy domains. These leaders work in network settings, making connections and collaborating to create public value and advance the common good. Featuring the insights of an authoritative group of contributors, the volume offers a mix of scholarship, from philosophical discussions to conceptual models to empirical studies that, taken together, will help inform the transformation of public leadership that is already underway.

Navigating the Volatility of Higher Education
68,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Applied Anthropology provides a new perspective on today¿s higher education environment. Volatile and unpredictable forces affect research and instruction across many sectors and levels, and global dynamics are among the strongest drivers of change. Further, within American higher education, daunting complexity and multiple layers of activity weave a rich tapestry of environment, structure, and culture This book provides three complementary anthropological perspectives as a framework for analyzing the ground-shifting changes underway in higher education ¿ the higher education mindset, political and policy perspectives, and instruction and learning. These domains intersect with many operational dimensions of higher education ¿ research, health care, athletics, economic development, fiscal management, planning, and faculty roles/challenges ¿ another way of framing the complexity of the situation we are addressing. Book chapters also provide a set of implications for higher education policy. The book concludes with a vision of next steps in research and practice to further anthropology¿s contribution to higher education policy and practice The intended audience includes both academic and professionals¿e.g., faculty and students in departments of higher education, anthropology, and education policy. Higher education leaders, administrators, governing board members, and many others will find the book helpful in providing insight into today¿s challenges. The book will also be of use to professionals outside higher education who work on policy issues, on meeting the needs of employers, and on preparing students for careers in public service.

Deep Equality in an Era of Religious Diversity
70,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While religious conflict receives plenty of attention, the everyday negotiation of religious diversity does not. Questions of how to accommodate religious minorities and of the limits of tolerance resonate in a variety of contexts and have become central preoccupations for many Western democracies. What might we see if we turned our attention to the positive narratives and success stories of the everyday working out of religious difference? Rather than 'tolerance' and 'accommodation', and through the stories of ordinary people, this book traces deep equality, which is found in the respect, humour, and friendship of seemingly mundane interactions. Deep Equality in an Era of Religious Diversity shows that the telling of such stories can create an alternative narrative to that of diversity as a problem to be solved. It explores the non-event, or micro-processes of interaction that constitute the foundation for deep equality and the conditions under which deep equality emerges, exists, and sometimes flourishes. Through a systematic search for and examination of such narratives, Lori G. Beaman demonstrates the possibility of uncovering, revealing, and recovering deep equality-a recovery that is vital to living in an increasingly diverse society. In achieving deep equality, identities are fluid, shifting in importance and structure as social interaction unfolds. Rigid identity imaginings, especially religious identities, block our vision to the complexities of social life and press us into corners that trap us in identities that we often ourselves do not recognize, want, or know how to escape. Although the focus of this study is deep equality and its existence and persistence in relation to religious difference, deep equality is located beyond the realm of religion. Beaman draws from the work of those whose primary focus is not in fact religion, and who are doing their own 'deep equality' work in other domains, illustrating especially why equality matters. By retelling and exploring stories of negotiation it is possible to reshape our social imaginary to better facilitate what works, which varies from place to place and time to time.
