Illegal, Legal Immigration

This book will inform and educate the general public on illegal immigration and its effects not only on those directly involved in the process, but on the general population as well. Writing about it in the context of its impact on contemporary society seems to be the best way to do it. How the different media view it, the degree to which the public has been influenced to view the question of immigration in the United States, Europe and elsewhere are included in the issues discussed, analyzed and elaborated on, as we attempt to look at the process of immigration, legal and illegal, from the standpoint of its impact on society as a whole. If some of the stories seem to be familiar, it is because the people are real, and the things they talk about actually happened. They are essentially true stories told by people who want to share their real-life experiences. Only in a few instances have names been changed to protect the identities of those involved.

The Foreman/Supervisor’s Handbook

The Foreman/Supervisor's Handbook is offered as a com prehensive and authoritative text which presents the kind of prac tical information the foreman or supervisor needs in order to be effective on the job. It completely revises and updates The Foreman's Handbook, a work which, through four previous edi tions, has become the standard text in its field. The term "foreman/supervisor" in the title of the new edition was decided upon by the editors despite a reluctance to tamper with a well established name, in recognition of a change in usage which has come about over the years. "Supervisor" is now more generally used in industry for the first level of management and is espe cially appropriate since the emerging role of women in super visory (and higher) positions has rendered the earlier, gender specific term less properly descriptive. Moreover, although the orientation of the book is to manufacturing operations, the prin ciples and techniques discussed have wide application in office operations, where the term "supervisor" is the designation uni versally used. To retain continuity with the previous editions, the compromise term "foreman/supervisor" was adopted. As in previous editions, each chapter is written by an authority in the ~ubject covered. Each, morever, stands on its own feet, i. e. , it can be read as a separate article, independent of preceding or succeeding chapters.

Caught up in current social changes, we do not fully understand the reshaping of social life. In sociological analyses there is a conceptual gap between subjectivities and social structural processes, and we face real difficulties in understanding social change and diversity. Through analysis of key areas of social life, here, Sarah Irwin develops a new and exciting resource for better understanding our changing social world. Breaking with conventional approaches and reconnecting the subjective with the objective, Irwin’s book develops a new conceptual and analytical perspective with social relationality, interdependence and social context at its heart. The new perspective is developed through grounded analyses of empirical evidence, and draws on new data. It explores and analyzes: * significant changes in family forms, fertility, gender relations and commitments to employment, children and care, both now, and with comparisons to early twentieth century developments * the meshing of norms and social relations in contexts of change * diverse values, norms and perceptions of fairness, analyzed with respect to diversity over the life course, and in respect of gender, ethnicity and social class. Through analysis of context, Irwin offers new insights, and tackles puzzles of explanation. Reshaping Social Life offers a fascinating and innovative way of slicing into and re-interrogating our changing social world, and is sure to become a landmark resource for students, scholars and researchers.

First published in 1978, Feminism and Socialism in Chinaexplores the inter-relationship of feminism and socialism and the contribution of each towards the redefinition of the role and status of women in China. In her history of the women’s movement in China from the late nineteenth century onwards, Professor Croll provides an opportunity to study its construction, its ideological and structural development over a number of decades, and its often ambiguous relationship with a parallel movement to establish socialism. Based on a variety of material including eye witness accounts, the author examines a wide range of fundamental issues, including women’s class and oppression, the relation of women’s solidarity groups to class organisations, reproduction and the accommodation of domestic labour, women in the labour process, and the relationship between women’s participation in social production and their access to and control of political and economic resources. The book includes excerpts from studies of village and communal life, documents of the women’s movement and interviews with members of the movement.

Women! Be Silent No More

This book presents the case for a women's role in the ministry. It validates their right to participate fully in any area of Kingdom work. It shows that women are eligible to serve in any office of the church, including any one of the five-fold ministries (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher). Were there women apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers in the New Testament Church? Yes. This book puts in perspective certain doctrines (the silent doctrine and headship-submission doctrines), which have been used to deny women their covenant rights to participate in the pulpit ministry as pastors and teachers. The Bible says, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). These words, by the Apostle Paul, are the greatest validation for women's inclusion in the ministry. Dr. Delroy E. Markland, a native of Jamaica, has been in the ministry for over 36 years as a Spirit-filled evangelist, pastor, and Bible teacher. He is a graduate of Bethel Bible College (1975), Zion Bible Institute (1978), and at Southwestern Assembly of God College, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. degree in 1979. He attended Oral Roberts University Graduate School of Theology and Seminary in 1980-1981. There he became a graduate assistant, teaching Old and New Testament Survey courses with Drs. Schatzman and Horner. He furthered his education at Christian Life School of Theology in Columbus, Georgia, where he graduated with a MTh (2004), MDiv (2006), and DMin (2007). He is listed in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities (1979) and has radio and television experience. He currently pastors two churches. This book is a compilation of four years of in-depth study on the subject of women in ministry.

Unpopular Privacy

What Must We Hide?

Can the government stick us with privacy we don't want? It can, it does, and according to Anita L. Allen, it may need to do more of it. Privacy is a foundational good, Allen argues, a necessary tool in the liberty-lover's kit for a successful life. A nation committed to personal freedom must be prepared to mandate privacy protections for its people, whether they eagerly embrace them or not. This unique book draws attention to privacies of seclusion, concealment, confidentiality and data-protection undervalued by their intended beneficiaries and targets--and outlines the best reasons for imposing them. Allen looks at laws designed to keep website operators from collecting personal information, laws that force strippers to wear thongs, and the myriad employee and professional confidentiality rules--including insider trading laws--that require strict silence about matters whose disclosure could earn us small fortunes. She shows that such laws recognize the extraordinary importance of dignity, trust and reputation, helping to preserve social, economic and political options throughout a lifetime.

This primary source reader assembles key documents and firsthand accounts that are emblematic of American life from the end of World War II to the present. Designed to complement a core text for a typical post-1945 U.S. history course, the book offers conciseness and selectivity with balanced coverage of domestic and foreign, societal and cultural issues grouped together chronologically. The readings afford students compelling and sometimes startling insights into the nation's postwar adaptation to its new position of global power and responsibility, wealth, and rapid social change; on through years of energy and ambition, conflict and tragedy, to the post-Vietnam malaise and the rise of Ronald Reagan, the frenzied nineties, and the arrival of the new millennium. Each chapter includes an introduction that sets the documents in historical context, a biographical sketch of a significant person of the time, study questions, and suggestions for further reading.

The Weimar Republic Sourcebook

A laboratory for competing visions of modernity, the Weimar Republic (1918-1933) continues to haunt the imagination of the twentieth century. Its political and cultural lessons retain uncanny relevance for all who seek to understand the tensions and possibilities of our age. The Weimar Republic Sourcebook represents the most comprehensive documentation of Weimar culture, history, and politics assembled in any language. It invites a wide community of readers to discover the richness and complexity of the turbulent years in Germany before Hitler's rise to power. Drawing from such primary sources as magazines, newspapers, manifestoes, and official documents (many unknown even to specialists and most never before available in English), this book challenges the traditional boundaries between politics, culture, and social life. Its thirty chapters explore Germany's complex relationship to democracy, ideologies of "reactionary modernism," the rise of the "New Woman," Bauhaus architecture, the impact of mass media, the literary life, the tradition of cabaret and urban entertainment, and the situation of Jews, intellectuals, and workers before and during the emergence of fascism. While devoting much attention to the Republic's varied artistic and intellectual achievements (the Frankfurt School, political theater, twelve-tone music, cultural criticism, photomontage, and urban planning), the book is unique for its inclusion of many lesser-known materials on popular culture, consumerism, body culture, drugs, criminality, and sexuality; it also contains a timetable of major political events, an extensive bibliography, and capsule biographies. This will be a major resource and reference work for students and scholars in history; art; architecture; literature; social and political thought; and cultural, film, German, and women's studies.
