Book Summary:

From the 23rd to 26th of November 2009 in La Palma island, in the Canaries, the Comparative Education Society in Europe (CESE) organized an international symposium entitled PISA under Examination: Changing Knowledge, Changing Tests, and Changing Schools. During four days seventeen leading scholars of Europe and America presented their contributions to debate the different problematiques of the remarkable phenomenon represented by the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment or PISA. PISA is not merely an educational event. It is also a media circus which involves the public rehearsal for reasons for failure or success; and even, in some cases, public and political and academic explanations about why 'failure' was not really that, and why 'success' was not really that either. At the centre of all these indications, we find the growing influence of international agencies on education and schooling which is decisively contributing to a marketisation of the field of education, in the context of an increasingly multilevel and fragmented arena for educational governance based on the formulation, the regulation and the transnational coordination and convergence of policies, buttressed at the same time by the diffusion of persuasive discursive practice. Organized in four sections entitled The Comparative Challenges of the OCDE PISA Programme, PISA and School Knowledge, The Assessment of PISA, School Effectiveness and the Socio-cultural Dimension, PISA and the Immigrant Student Question, and Extreme Visions of PISA: Germany and Finland, the contributions of this book offers a comprehensive approach of all these challenging and significant issues written from different and distinct research and academic traditions.

Book Summary:

This multi-authored volume contains peer-reviewed chapters from leading researchers and professionals in silvopastoral systems topic in Southern South America (Argentina, Chile and South Brazil). It is a compendium of original research articles, case studies, and regional overviews and summarizes the current state of knowledge on different components and aspects (pasture production, animal production, trees production, carbon sequestration, conservation) of silvopatoral systems in native forests and tree plantations. The main hypothesis of the book is that farmers have integrated tree and pasture/grassland species in their land use systems to reach higher production per unit of land area, risk avoidance, product diversification, and sustainability. These production systems also impact positively in main ecosystem processes. Management of these productive systems, Policy and Socioeconomic Aspects provide great opportunities and challenges for farmers and policy makers in our region. The book is unique on this subject in Southern South America and constitutes a valuable reference material for graduate students, professors, scientists and extensionists who work with silvopastoral systems.

Book Summary:

This new and expanded edition of Dragon in the Tropics—the widely acclaimed account of how president Hugo Chávez (1999–2013) revamped Venezuela’s political economy—examines the electoral decline of Chavismo after Chavez’s death and the policies adopted by his successor, Nicolás Maduro, to cope with the economic chaos inherited from previous radical populist policies. Corrales and Penfold argue that Maduro has had to struggle with the inherent contradictions of a large and heterogeneous social coalition, a declining oil sector, the strength of entrenched military interests, and fewer resources to appease international allies, which have strenghtened the autocratic features of an already consolidated hybrid regime. In examining the new political realities of Venezuela, the authors offer lessons on the dynamics of succession in hybrid regimes. This book is a must-read for scholars and analysts of Latin America.

Book Summary:

In the course of history, humans have attempted to interrupt the physiological and psychological bond formed between a nursing mother and her child by substituting breastfeeding with artificial formulas. A growing body of evidence indicates that breast milk, quite apart from its unsurpassed nutritive value, contains a large number of substances that protect the offspring from common infectious agents and allergens and promote the maturation of the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system. In addition to well described milk antibodies and soluble mediators of innate immunity, milk cells and pluripotent secreted factors - cytokines - are currently in the forefront of extensive research with respect to their importance in milk immunology. The purpose of this conference was to critically evaluate the current state of our knowledge concerning the protective role of immune agents found in milk, to provide up-to-date information of milk factors with respect to their role in the maturation of immunological defense systems in the neonate, and to reassess the importance of breastfeeding in the prevention of allergies in formula-fed infants. We hope that the work presented by international participants will prompt many new ideas and stimulate further research in this important area. This conference was sponsored primarily by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. We would like to thank Drs. Sumner Yaffe and Delbert Dayton for their efforts with the organization, planning, and support of this conference.

Book Summary:

Phenology is the study of plant and animal life cycle events, which are triggered by environmental changes, especially temperature. Wide ranges of phenomena are included, from first openings of leaf and flower buds, to insect hatchings and return of birds. Each one gives a ready measure of the environment as viewed by the associated organism. Thus, phenological events are ideal indicators of the impact of local and global changes in weather and climate on the earth's biosphere. Assessing our changing world is a complex task that requires close cooperation from experts in biology, climatology, ecology, geography, oceanography, remote sensing and other areas. This book is a synthesis of current phenological knowledge, designed as a primer on the field for global change and general scientists, students and interested members of the public. With contributions from a diverse group of over fifty phenological experts, covering data collection, current research, methods and applications, it demonstrates the accomplishments and potential of phenology as an integrative environmental science.

Book Summary:

Essays that address the question: how can people and class agency change this destructive course of history? Capitalism’s addiction to fossil fuels is heating our planet at a pace and scale never before experienced. Extreme weather patterns, rising sea levels and accelerating feedback loops are a commonplace feature of our lives. The number of environmental refugees is increasing and several island states and low-lying countries are becoming vulnerable. Corporate-induced climate change has set us on an ecocidal path of species extinction. Governments and their international platforms such as the Paris Climate Agreement deliver too little, too late. Most states, including South Africa, continue on their carbon-intensive energy paths, with devastating results. Political leaders across the world are failing to provide systemic solutions to the climate crisis. This is the context in which we must ask ourselves: how can people and class agency change this destructive course of history? Volume three in the Democratic Marxism series, The Climate Crisis investigates eco-socialist alternatives that are emerging. It presents the thinking of leading climate justice activists, campaigners and social movements advancing systemic alternatives and developing bottom-up, just transitions to sustain life. Through a combination of theoretical and empirical work, the authors collectively examine the challenges and opportunities inherent in the current moment. This volume builds on the class-struggle focus of Volume 2 by placing ecological issues at the centre of democratic Marxism. Most importantly, it explores ways to renew historical socialism with democratic, eco-socialist alternatives to meet current challenges in South Africa and the world.

"Pueden atarme a un matrimonio que no quiero, pero aún recuerdo quién soy: Katherine Gray, señora de Hay". "Atravesé un mar de tormentas, las llamas del infierno y la muerte. No hay patria, mar o rey que pueda separarme de ti, mi corazón te pertenece". Han pasado dos años y Alistair Murray, un highlander escocés al servicio de la reina inglesa, vuelve de la guerra. Aún le queda una última misión, en apariencia simple, que lo lleva a un perdido castillo inglés disfrazado de monje. Katherine Gray, señora de Hay, es independiente, valiente y obstinada y se niega a que la obliguen a una boda de conveniencia con un noble inglés al que desprecia. Huye de su hogar en busca de libertad, pero ni es tan sencillo ni nada sale como ella pensaba. Un falso monje de intensos ojos azules la ayudará a llegar a las tierras altas de Escocia, donde pretende esconderse. Para la señora de Hay, ahora lo difícil no será escapar de su destino, sino combatir la atracción de cierto guerrero escocés con demasiadas cicatrices y cuya fama de conquistador es conocida en todas las Highlands.

Book Summary:

In the 1840s, Italy was a patchwork of states. The North was ruled by the Austrian Empire, the South by the Spanish-descended monarchy of the Two Sicilies. Over the next two decades, after wars led by Savoy/Piedmont and volunteers such as Garibaldi, an independent Kingdom of Italy emerged. These conflicts saw foreign interventions and shifting alliances among minor states, and attracted a variety of local and foreign volunteers. This second volume in a two part series covers the armies of the Papal States; the duchies of Tuscany, Parma, and Modena; the republics of Rome and San Marco (Venice) and the transitional Kingdom of Sicily; and the various volunteer movements. These varied armies and militias wore a wide variety of highly colourful uniforms which are brought to life in stunning, specially commissioned, full colour artwork from Giuseppe Rava.

Book Summary:

The Great Northern War was a long series of campaigns in which Russia, linked with several other countries in temporary alliances, confronted and eventually replaced Sweden as the predominant power in Northern Europe. While contemporary with the Duke of Marlborough's pivotal campaigns against France, the Great Northern War was in fact more decisive, since it reshaped the Northern European power balance up to the eve of the Napoleonic Wars. It began with a series of astonishing Swedish victories lead by King Charles XII, from Denmark to Poland and deep into Germany. But Peter the Great of Russia showed steadfast determination, and Charles overreached himself when he invaded Russia in 1708; the Russians adopted classic 'scorched earth' tactics until they could destroy the Swedish army at Poltava in 1709, one of the most overwhelming victories in history. Nevertheless, Sweden continued to fight, and frequently win, in Germany, Denmark and Norway, until Charles's death in battle in 1718, though the war itself did not conclude until 1721. This study explores, in detail, the numerous armies and complex alliances engaged in the war for Northern European dominance. Containing accurate full-colour artwork and unrivalled detail, Armies of the Great Northern War offers a vivid insight into the troops which battled for control of the North.

Book Summary:

This open access book provides a comprehensive overview of volcanic crisis research, the goal being to establish ways of successfully applying volcanology in practice and to identify areas that need to be addressed for future progress. It shows how volcano crises are managed in practice, and helps to establish best practices. Consequently the book brings together authors from all over the globe who work with volcanoes, ranging from observatory volcanologists, disaster practitioners and government officials to NGO-based and government practitioners to address three key aspects of volcanic crises. First, the book explores the unique nature of volcanic hazards, which makes them a particularly challenging threat to forecast and manage, due in part to their varying spatial and temporal characteristics. Second, it presents lessons learned on how to best manage volcanic events based on a number of crises that have shaped our understanding of volcanic hazards and crises management. Third, it discusses the diverse and wide-ranging aspects of communication involved in crises, which merge old practices and new technologies to accommodate an increasingly challenging and globalised world. The information and insights presented here are essential to tapping established knowledge, moving towards more robust volcanic crises management, and understanding how the volcanic world is perceived from a range of standpoints and contexts around the globe.

Book Summary:

This Handbook provides an essential guide to the study of resources and their role in socio-environmental change. With original contributions from more than 60 authors with expertise in a wide range of resource types and world regions, it offers a toolkit of conceptual and methodological approaches for documenting, analyzing, and reimagining resources and the worlds with which they are entangled. The volume has an introduction and four thematic sections. The introductory chapter outlines key trajectories for thinking critically with and about resources. Chapters in Section I, "(Un)knowing resources," offer distinct epistemological entry points and approaches for studying resources. Chapters in Section II, "(Un)knowing resource systems," examine the components and logics of the capitalist systems through which resources are made, circulated, consumed, and disposed of, while chapters in Section III, "Doing critical resource geography: Methods, advocacy, and teaching," focus on the practices of critical resource scholarship, exploring the opportunities and challenges of carrying out engaged forms of research and pedagogy. Chapters in Section IV, "Resource-making/world-making," use case studies to illustrate how things are made into resources and how these processes of resource-making transform socio-environmental life. This vibrant and diverse critical resource scholarship provides an indispensable reference point for researchers, students, and practitioners interested in understanding how resources matter to the world and to the systems, conflicts, and debates that make and remake it.

Book Summary:

¿Y qué si él es un poco más viejo y por lo general se refiere a una mujer humana como la cena, no una cita para cenar? Sí, Román Draganesti es un vampiro, pero un vampiro que perdió uno de sus colmillos hundiéndo sus dientes en algo que no debería haber comido. Ahora tiene una noche para encontrar a un dentista antes de que sus capacidades naturales de sanación cierren la herida, dejándole comer de lado por toda la eternidad. Las cosas tampoco no lucen bien para Shanna Whelan... después de presenciar un asesinato espantoso por la mafia rusa, ella es la siguiente en su lista negra. Y su carrera como dentista parece estar en una espiral descendente porque parece tenerle miedo a la sangre. Cuando Román la rescata de un intento de asesinato, se pregunta si ella ha encontrado el hombre que puede mantenerla con vida. Aunque la atracción entre ellos es inmediata y ardiente, ¿podrá Shanna conquistar su miedo a la sangre y arreglar el colmillo de Román? Y si lo hace, ¿que le impedirá a Román usar sus colmillos en ella...?

Book Summary:

En 1190 la épica cruzada que encabeza el célebre Ricardo Corazón de León para recuperar Jerusalén de manos de los sarracenos se encuentra en pleno apogeo. Entre sus nutridas y aguerridas huestes marcha el más famoso, temido y valiente guerrero de su tiempo, el conde de Locksley, más conocido como Robin Hood. Acompañado de sus fieles y entrañables compañeros, el conde pone su astucia y su ímpetu al servicio de la lucha contra el infiel, pero lo que ni él ni nadie esperaba es que tuvieran que luchar también contra un enemigo oculto en su propias filas, un infiltrado que pone en riesgo sus planes de ataque. La trama se desdobla así en una línea de acción bélica y otra de misterio e intriga, al tiempo que el autor sigue desarrollando a los personajes que acompañan a Robin Hood, particularmente a Little John y al propio narrador.

Book Summary:

Cervantes y Shakespeare presentan en sus obras un tesoro de estudio sobre la naturaleza y la condición humana, la sociedad y los valores morales. Ambos se muestran, igualmente, muy críticos contra los abusos del poder y la nobleza, ocupándose de temas controvertidos cuyo tratamiento legitiman y configuran los dos personajes más icónicos de las letras universales. Los dos fueran hombres del Renacimiento. Esto les llevó a tener influencias culturales similares y a idear, historias, planteamientos y soluciones parecidas para sus obras. Durante muchos años los lectores hispanos conocieron a W. Shakespeare por medio de Astrana, muchos estudiosos y traductores actuales no pueden dejar de mencionar sus traducciones como la base configuradora de la imagen de Shakespeare en español. Luis Astrana Marín realizó en solitario la auténtica Enciclopedia de Miguel de Cervantes, nunca superada setenta y cinco años después, imprescindible para cualquier investigador de su vida, de su obra y de su época. Hoy reunimos en este volumen los paralelismos y convergencias ente Shakespeare y Cervantes acudiendo al sobresaliente trabajo de Astrana Marín.

Book Summary:

Fieros en la batalla y amantes de las historias; así eran los celtas, y así se reflejan en las leyendas que nos han legado. Transmitidas oralmente de padres a hijos durante siglos, aunque puestas por escrito mucho después, nos traen ecos de un pasado donde el valor, el honor, la belleza y la magia formaban parte de lo cotidiano. Desde los conocidísimos caballeros de la corte del rey Arturo hasta los héroes más oscuros, estos personajes milenarios siguen siendo una fuente de inspiración constante para escritores y cineastas, y han entrado a formar parte del imaginario popular como algo a la vez exótico y cercano. Este título es considerado desde su publicación la recopilación más completa sobre la cosmovisión de los pueblos celtas de la antigüedad. Escrito con gran rigor literario y belleza narrativa, es una referencia imprescindible tanto para el estudio en profundidad de esta cultura como para iniciarse en sus misterios.
