Finding meaning in the experience of dementia : the place of spiritual reminiscence work by Elizabeth MacKinlay( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking book is based on the findings of the first major study of spiritual reminiscence with people with dementia. The authors present the efficacy of spiritual reminiscence with this group, and draw on real examples to demonstrate the many ways in which it can benefit those with the condition. Specific practice issues are addressed, including how to maximize communication, how to nurture connections and how to design an effective spiritual reminiscence programme, and transcripts of sessions are included throughout the book, providing unprecedented insight into how people with dementia experience reminiscence and encouraging reflective practice. The book closes with a set of questions and discussion topics which can be used as the basis of a six-week programme."--Back cover
Sovereign wealth funds and international political economy by Manda Shemirani( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, Shemirani provides a systematic methodology for the study of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) over their life span and emphasizes the need for a paradigm shift in our approach towards the study of state capitalism. Applied in this book to the world's four largest SWFs - Government Pension Fund-Global of Norway, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority of the United Arab Emirates, Temasek of Singapore, and the National Wealth Fund of the Russian Federation, this methodology can also be applied to other funds or form a basis for further analytical studies of SWFs. In addition to its first hand approach, the book addresses concerns about the lack of transparency by offering insights into the functioning and investment strategies of the selected SWFs. Academics and students in international political economy, international finance and international business as well as financiers, business leaders, and policy makers, will find the subject and the approach of this book highly useful

Urban design futures by Malcolm Moor( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These scenarios take the form of a series of 'think-pieces' on different aspects of urban design by leading practitioners and theorists. Essays from an international group of authors review progress and explore emerging ideas. Should urban design anticipate the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and urban design in the future? This book explores new concepts and points the way towards a series of urban design paradigms for the twenty-first century."--Jacket
Action research : principles and practice by Jean McNiff( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the first edition of this established text was published in 1988, action research has gained ground as a popular method amongst educational researchers, and in particular for practising teachers doing higher-level courses. In this new edition Jean McNiff provides updates on methodological discussions and includes new sections of case study material and information on supporting action research. The book raises issues about how action research is theorised, whether it is seen as a spectator discipline or as a real life practice, and how practitioners position themselves within the debate. It discusses the importance for educators of understanding their own work and showing how their educative influence can lead to the development of good orders in formal and informal learning settings and in the wider community. This second edition comes at a time when, after years of debate over what counts as action research, it is now considered an acceptable and useful part of mainstream research practice
