International migration : a very short introduction by Khalid Koser( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the global phenomenon of human migration--both legal and illegal-revealing how migration actually presents opportunities that must be taken advantage of in light of the current economic climate. The author debunks myths such as the claim that migrants take jobs away from local workers, or that they take advantage of health care systems. He reveals why society as we now know it could not function without them. Using interviews with migrants from around the world, the author presents the human side of topics such as asylum and refugees, human trafficking, migrant smuggling, development, and the international labor force. His goal throughout is to allow readers to see beyond the negative spin usually given the subject by the media and politicians, and come to their own conclusions on the current international migration situation

Rhythmic grammar : the influence of rhythm on grammatical variation and change in English by Julia Schlüter( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the frequently neglected influence of rhythm on variation and change in English grammar, this book provides a groundbreaking study of interactions at the interface between phonology and morphosyntax. It refines available descriptions of grammatical phenomena by examining the explanatory force of the avoidance of adjacent stressed syllables. The main, empirical part presents twenty detailed analyses of a representative set of structures, most of them combining a synchronic and a diachronic perspective. The analysis is based on an extensive collection of electronic corpora covering the sixteenth to twentieth centuries. A theoretical discussion of implications for linguistic models such as Optimality Theory and spreading activation networks rounds off the volume."--BOOK JACKET

Russian literature : a very short introduction by Catriona Kelly( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than presenting a conventional chronology of Russian literature, Russian Literature: A Very Short Introduction explores the place and importance in Russian culture of all types of literature. How and when did a Russian national literature come into being? What shaped its creation? How have the Russians regarded their literary language? The book uses the figure of Pushkin--'the Russian Shakespeare'--as a recurring example, as his work influenced every Russian writer who came after him, whether they wrote prose or verse. It furthermore examines why Russian writers are venerated, how they've been interpreted inside Russia and beyond, and the influences of the folk tale tradition, orthodox religion, and the West.-publisher description
The nature of the state : excavating the political ecologies of the modern state by Mark Whitehead( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twin categories of the state and nature collectively embody some of the most fundamental reference points around which our lives and thinking are organized. Despite their combined significance, however, the complex relationships that exist between modern states and nature remain under-theorized and are relatively unexplored. Through a detailed study of different sites, moments, and framing strategies, "The Nature of the State" challenges the ways in which geographers and social scientists approach the study of state-nature relations. The authors analyse different instances of state-nature interaction from all over the world, considering the geo-politics of resource conflicts, the operation of natural history museums, the organizational practices of environmental departments and ministries, the regulation of genetic science, and contemporary forms of state intervention within issues of climate change.; Introducing original research into the different institutional, spatial, and temporal strategies used by states to frame the natural world, this book provides a critical overview of the latest political and ecological theories and addresses a wide range of pressing socio-environmental debates
Framing the future : how progressive values can win elections and influence people by Bernie Horn( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polls consistently show that most Americans are progressives at heart. By margins of at least two to one, we favor affordable healthcare for all, even if it means raising taxes; want federal action to combat global warming; support stricter gun control; don't want Roe vs. Wade overturned; and the list goes on. So why is it so hard for progressive candidates to win elections? Because, says Bernie Horn, most progressives don't know how to explain their ideas in ways that resonate with "persuadables" - the significant slice of the electorate who don't instantly identify as Democrats or Republicans. These are the voters who swing elections. There's been a lot of theoretical discussion about framing lately, but Framing the Future isn't theory - the concepts outlined in this book have been used successfully by progressive candidates across the nation, even in such conservative bastions as Montana, Arizona, and Florida." "Drawing on rigorous polling data and his own experience as a veteran political consultant, Horn explains how persuadable voters think about issues and make political decisions and why, as a result, the usual progressive approaches are practically designed to fail with them. He offers a crash course in the nuts and bolts of framing and shows how to use three bedrock American values - freedom, opportunity, and security - to frame progressive positions in a way that creates a consistent, unified political vision that will appeal to persuadable voters."--book jacket
Of sugar and snow : a history of ice cream making by Jeri Quinzio( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Was ice cream invented in Philadelphia? How about by the Emperor Nero, when he poured honey over snow? Did Marco Polo first taste it in China and bring recipes back? In this first book to tell ice cream's full story, Jeri Quinzio traces the beloved confection from its earliest appearances in sixteenth-century Europe to the small towns of America and debunks some colorful myths along the way. She explains how ice cream is made, describes its social role, and connects historical events to its business and consumption. A diverting yet serious work of history, Of Sugar and Snow provides a fascinating array of recipes, from a seventeenth-century Italian lemon sorbet to a twentieth-century American strawberry mallobet, and traces how this once elite status symbol became today's universally available and wildly popular treat"--Publisher's description
