This book presents articles written by leading experts surveying several major subfields in Condensed Matter Physics and related sciences. The articles are based on invited talks presented at a recent conference honoring Nobel laureate Philip W. Anderson of Princeton University, who coined the phrase "More is different" while formulating his contention that all fields of physics, indeed all of science, involve equally fundamental insights. The articles introduce and survey current research in areas that have been close to Anderson's interests. Together, they illustrate both the deep impact that Anderson has had in this multifaceted field during the past half century and the progress spawned by his insights. The contributors cover numerous topics under the umbrellas of superconductivity, superfluidity, magnetism, electron localization, strongly interacting electronic systems, heavy fermions, and disorder and frustration in glass and spin-glass systems. They also describe interdisciplinary areas such as the science of olfaction and color vision, the screening of macroions in electrolytes, scaling and renormalization in cosmology, forest fires and the spread of measles, and the investigation of "NP-complete" problems in computer science. The articles are authored by Philip W. Anderson, Per Bak and Kan Chen, G. Baskaran, Juan Carlos Campuzano, Paul Chaikin, John Hopfield, Bernhard Keimer, Scott Kirkpatrick and Bart Selman, Gabriel Kotliar, Patrick Lee, Yoshiteru Maeno, Marc Mezard, Douglas Osheroff et al., H. R. Ott, L. Pietronero et al., T. V. Ramakrishnan, A. Ramirez, Myriam Sarachik, T. Senthil and Matthew P. A. Fisher, B. I. Shklovskii et al., and F. Steglich et al.
This is the little book that started a revolution, making women's voices heard, in their own right and with their own integrity, for virtually the first time in social scientific theorizing about women. Its impact was immediate and continues to this day, in the academic world and beyond. Translated into sixteen languages, with more than 700,000 copies sold around the world, In a Different Voice has inspired new research, new educational initiatives, and political debate—and helped many women and men to see themselves and each other in a different light.
This book gives an overview of the European Youth Campaign against Racism, Xenophobia, Anti-Semitism & Intolerance & proposes ways of continuing the original campaign in future daily activities, from a practical point of view.
Manage managers based on competencies and informal networks – Set task-based output goals for professional specialists – Control temporary workers at the agency level – Ensure that contractors are managed effectively as part of boundary-crossing networks. This book provides a framework of analysis to capture and explain differences in employment systems. Taking account of the wealth of research in the field, it provides a sound basis for developing function-specific performance management systems, integrating aspects such as incentivization, multi-source appraisal, and accountability. From macro to micro approaches of HRM, the contents will be of value to researchers on employment systems, strategic HRM, and occupational psychology and to practitioners of HRM and organizational development. Achim Krausert has been a consultant in the performance management group of Accenture, U.K. He obtained his D.B.A. from the University of Mannheim, Germany, and an M.Sc. and a B.Sc. from the London School of Economics.
For the first time in the republican history of Peru, the presidential transition takes place in democracy, social peace, fast economic growth and favorable world markets. In other words, there has never been a better chance to build a different Peru - a richer country, more equal and governable. There are multiple ways to achieve that goal. New reforms must stem from a widespread and participatory debate, one of a common vision conceived for and by Peruvians. This book aims at making a technical and independent contribution to such debate; it summarizes the knowledge available about the challenges to be faced by the new administration. The study does not recommend silver bullets, but suggests policy options. It is based on the analysis of the current reality and in six decades of relationships with Peru, in which the Bank has implemented more than 100 projects and prepared more than 500 technical reports covering the wide range of development topics. When necessary, the study provides lessons that the Bank has learned elsewhere. The study provides a conceptual framework to the analysis of the country's 34 economic sectors and the two historical perspectives behind them. In doing so, it offers a comprehensive reform agenda that sheds light on possible priorities and courses of action.
Bullying has a tendency to be associated with aggression between children in the playground, but bullying and abuse can also be observed in other social settings. Bullying in Different Contexts brings together, for the first time, leading international researchers to discuss these behaviours in a wide range of settings, including preschool, school, the home, residential care, prisons, the workplace and cyberspace. The authors provide background to the different contexts, discuss the impact and types of interpersonal aggression and the characteristics of those involved. A final chapter collates the findings from each context to draw conclusions on the similarities and differences between the behaviours, risk factors for involvement and theoretical approaches to explain bullying. This original volume will further our understanding of bullying and inform preventative and intervention work. The authors seek to show how research from diverse settings may inform our understanding of the bullying phenomenon as a whole.

The essays collected in Analyzing the Different Voice: Feminist Psychological Theory and Literary Texts apply influential, pathbreaking psychological studies about women's lives to literature. In their analyses of fictional portraits, contributors both challenge and confirm psychological theories about female identity, about 'connection/separation' as developmental catalysts, and about the impact of gender on 'voice, ' moral decision-making, and epistemology in relation to classical and contemporary literary texts, written by both women and men.
'Tackles an area of the curriculum many teachers lack confidence in.' 'Lots of good starting points'. 'Spans a lot of material and is strong on diverse learning styles.' 'Clear explanation and good visual layour, very innovative in approach.' - Judging Panel for NASEN/TES Book Award 'The book is rich in lively teaching suggestions and in insights into the impact of different forms of explanation' - Debate '[C]arries us away from narrow views of ability and special needs and into the consideration of difference. The author takes us through lively discussions of many aspects of mathematics learning. Each section offers learning and teaching ideas involving visual and kinaesthetic approaches. The book is a compendium of sound ideas rather than a collection of startlingly new approaches. But throughout it has the great strength of being exceptionally clear in its arguments, descriptions and drawings. The design is generally helpful with plenty of illustrations, as befits the book's message. There are handy pages of photocopiable resources. This is a lively and often passionate account of ways of ensuring that multi-sensory approaches infect mathematics learning. As the author says, "pictures in the mind can help all pupils". We might add, "They help all teachers too"' - TES Extra for Special Needs 'If you have found pupils struggling to understand some aspects of mathematics at any age then this book is for you. It is a very readable book that would interest all those who work in classrooms, whether as a teacher or support worker with all ages and abilities, for those who work with older pupils as it gives possible approaches to use with those for whom basic skills are weak or have difficulty in understanding some of the concepts required of GCSE examinations' - Alison Parish, Second in Mathematics Department, Stowmarket High School, Suffolk Read the full review as posted on the Association of Teachers of Mathematics website! 'It is a highly practical book. One strength is the way that it develops a topic from the very basics through to the harder concepts. There are a large number of activities that are 'ready to run' but these really are just a starting point for teachers to begin thinking about teaching topics in a different way, and from these teachers will be able to develop their own approach. Although this book is focusing on pupils who are visual and kinaesthetic learners, the great majority of learners adopt a mixture of learning styles, so this approach will benefit the entire class. Worth a read!' - Maths Coordinator's File 'This excellent and very informative teaching resource is about teaching mathematics to pupils who have learning differences. [It] is very practical and easy to read. A really nice feature is the inclusion of photocopiable resource sheets allowing readers to try out easily the ideas suggested in the book. This resource is highly recommended and will be very suitable for maths teachers in primary and secondary schools, SENCOs and teaching assistants' - British Journal of Special Education 'This book is about making mathematics visible and tangible -- not something that just lies flat on the page. Dipping into it will provide instantly usable suggestions across a variety of topics at different levels: from early number concepts through to fractions and ratios, algebra, aspects of geometry (including angles and circles), and data handling. When you get a chance to read it more thoroughly you will find arguments for using these approaches, consideration of some of the pitfalls to avoid, and inspiration to develop different ways of helping students to achieve deep and connected understandings. For any teacher who wants to provide students with opportunities for visual and kinaesthetic learning in mathematics' - The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Inc. 'A very good book, offering teachers, SENCOs and teaching assistants guidelines, strategies and practical activities to access the thought processes of pupils with different learning styles. It has an easy-to-read format giving suggestions, rather than dictat, on the use of "models to think" and is a unique document for those who have input into the furthering of the teaching and learning of mathematics' - Mathematics in School How can you make maths exciting and meaningful for all your pupils? Some pupils find even basic concepts in mathematics difficult to grasp and it can be a challenge to make lessons accessible to all. This book offers practising teachers a range of approaches to making maths clear for struggling students. It looks at the different ways in which maths can be taught so that pupils with different learning styles can be stimulated. Maths is visible and tangible - not something that just lies flat on the page. Included are: - ideas to be used in lessons - suggestions for exciting, visual ways to teach basic concepts - lots of practical advice and guidance. The book shows teachers how to unlock mathematics for all their learners, and it encourages the use of a variety of methods to teach the subject. It provides a valuable resource for maths teachers in both primary and secondary schools, for SENCOs and teaching assistants, and for those delivering initial teacher training or inservice courses.
