The ninth edition of the best-selling Cases and Materials on Employment Discrimination blends cases, notes, and problems into an integrated pedagogy that balances scholarly and practice perspectives. The authors build a conceptual framework for understanding how discrimination is defined and proven in litigation. The text allows professors to explore particular interests more deeply and permits them to take not only a litigation approach but also explore the compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives that are characteristic of modern practice. The broad coverage integrates scholarship with legal doctrine drawn from statutes and judicial decisions. The useful Statutory Supplement is available for separate purchase. Key Benefits: Young v. UPS (reconceptualizing pregnancy discrimination). Nassar v. Uni. of Texas Sw. Med. Ctr. (requiring but-for causation for Title VII retaliation claims) Vance v. Ball State Univ. (narrowing the definition of supervisor for purposes of employer liability for sexual harassment) EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch (reconceptualizing claims of religious discrimination). New circuit court decisions on sexual orientation discrimination under Title VII. Streamlined coverage. Materials have been reworked, thus reducing page count by 100 pages.

Die erfolgreiche amerikanische Kinderbuchautorin schildert im neuen Band der Reihe 'Das magische Baumhaus' (zuletzt 'Im Schatten des Vulkans' und 'Im Land der Drachen', beide ID 34/02) eine magische Reise des 8jährigen Philipp und seiner 7jährigen Schwester aus den heutigen USA in ein mittelalterliches Kloster in Irland. Die Mönche schreiben u.a. alte irische Sagen auf, von denen die Kinder einen Band mitnehmen und so retten. Nur knapp entkommen die beiden einem Überfall von Wikingerschiffen. Die Geschichte ist mäßig spannend, da der gute Ausgang durch die magische Kräfte der Kinder von Anfang an sicher ist. Der geschichtliche Wissensgewinn ist sehr bescheiden, die Leser weder viel über die mittelalterliche klösterliche Kultur Irlands noch über die Wikinger erfahren und auch dies sind fast ausschließlich recht banale Allgemeinplätze (Das Mittelalter war "dunkel", die Klöster bewahrten die Kultur, die Wikinger waren gefährlich usw.). Die recht klobig wirkenden SchwarzWeißZeichnungen überzeugen ebenfalls nicht. Insgesamt ein überflüssiger Band, dessen Anschaffung nicht empfohlen werden kann. . Philipp und seine Schwester reisen mithilfe des magischen Baumhauses in ein mittelalterliches irisches Kloster, das von Wikingern bedroht wird. Ab 8.

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.
