Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation

Newcomers in American schools : meeting the educational needs of immigrant youths by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, the authors examine the schooling needs of immigrant students, assess how well these needs are currently being met, and suggest strategies for improving schooling outcomes for immigrants. The study analyzes immigrant education from a broad policy perspective, explicitly considering it as a political issue in competition for policymakers' attention and scarce public resources and as one of many challenges facing increasingly overburdened local school systems. Study data were collected from a purposive sample of nine school districts and 57 schools. Both on-site and telephone interviews were conducted with 240 district and school administrators, teachers, counselors, and community representatives. Four major conclusions emerged from the research: 1) Although they represent only a fraction of the nation's youth, immigrants constitute a growing proportion of that cohort and are heavily concentrated in a few areas of the country; 2) immigrant education is not a visible policy issue. Independent of their need to learn English and to escape the consequences of poverty, immigrant students are not viewed by federal and state policymakers as a distinct group requiring unique policy remedies--that immigrants may have different needs than native-born students is not widely recognized nor accepted; 3) the quality of schooling that immigrant students receive largely depends on the capacity of the local communities in which they reside. Yet most of these districts and schools lack the human and fiscal resources to educate students well, whether they are immigrant or native-born; and 4) immigrant students have unmet educational needs that are unique to their newcomer status. But the best way to help immigrant students is to strengthen the school systems that serve them, not to create new categorical programs that single out immigrants for special benefits

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From currency and maps to heavily newspapers and television programming, Art Systems explores visual forms of critique and subversion during the height of Brazilian dictatorship, drawing sometimes surprising connections between artistic production and broader processes of social exchange during a period of authoritarian modernization. Positioning the works beyond the prism of politics, Elena Shtromberg reveals subtle forms of subversion and critique that reinvented the artists' political terrain. Analyzing key examples from Cildo Meireles, Antonio Manuel, Artur Barrio, Anna Bella Geiger, Sonia Andrade, Geraldo Mello, and others, the book offers a new framework for theorizing artistic practice"--
Collection development and management at Cornell : a concluding report on activities of the Cornell University Libraries' Project for Collection Development and Management, July 1979-June 1980, with proposals for future planning by J. Gormly Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing concern on behalf of the Cornell Libraries administration about the lack of a central plan for library collection development at Cornell resulted in a study of the collection development function at Cornell, and the product of that study is this comprehensive proposal for a university-wide library collection and information resource planning program. The role and mission of the university's library system, the evolution of that system, and the function of the library system as part of the university information resource network are discussed in detail, the objectives of a collection development plan are outlined, and collection development responsibilities are defined. An organizational structure for collection development at Cornell is proposed, and among the adminstrative and budgetary aspects of the plan presented are the budget process, accounting and fund control, and book fund allocations. The relationship of collection management to collection development is also addressed. Accompanying and illustrating the text are three charts, eight tables, and one figure. The appendices include a list of definitions, a 37-item bibliography on the allocation of book funds in academic libraries, and a list of data collected during the Cornell Collection Management and Development Project.

The forgiveness to come : the Holocaust and the hyper-ethical by Peter Banki( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with the aporias, or impasses, of forgiveness, especially in relation to the legacy of the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Nazis and their collaborators during World War II. Banki argues that, while forgiveness of the Holocaust is and will remain impossible, we cannot rest upon that impossibility. Rather, the impossibility of forgiveness must be thought in another way. In an epoch of ?worldwidization,? we may not be able simply to escape the violence of scenes and rhetoric that repeatedly portray apology, reconciliation, and forgiveness as accomplishable acts. Accompanied by Jacques Derrida?s thought of forgiveness of the unforgivable, and its elaboration in relation to crimes against humanity, the book undertakes close readings of literary, philosophical, and cinematic texts by Simon Wiesenthal, Jean Améry, Vladimir Jankélévitch, Robert Antelme and Eva Mozes Kor. These texts contend with the idea that the crimes of the Nazis are inexpiable, that they lie beyond any possible atonement or repair. Banki argues that the juridical concept of crimes against humanity calls for a thought of forgiveness?one that would not imply closure of the infinite wounds of the past. How could such a forgiveness be thought or dreamed? Banki shows that if today we cannot simply escape the ?worldwidization? of forgiveness, then it is necessary to rethink what forgiveness is, the conditions under which it supposedly takes place, and especially its relation to justice
