A history of European folk music by Jan Ling( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study is to increase the reader's understanding of folk music within an historical, European framework, and to keep the genre alive as a dynamic and changing artform. The book addresses a plethora of questions through its detailed examination of a wide range of music from vastly different national and cultural identities. It also attempts to elucidate the connections among and the development of contemporary folk music across Europe, firstly by examining the ways in which scholars of different ideological and artistic ambitions have collected, studied, and performed it, then by investigating the relationship between folk and popular music. This book will serve well as either a textbook for upper-level, undergraduate courses or as a research tool for postgraduate study. Ethnomusicologists will also have a distinct interest in the opinions postulated and examined herein

Nordic prison education : a lifelong learning perspective by Erlendur S Baldursson( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1999, the Nordic Council adopted a recommendation on prison education in a Nordic perspective. In September 2001, a Nordic project group was appointed to carry out a study, with representatives from the Prison and Probation Services and the educational authorities. The project was directed by the County Governor of Hordaland, Norway. According to this report, good cooperation between the Prison and Probation Services and other authorities is one of the key starting points for satisfying prisoners¹ educational needs. The prison education offered today does not satisfactorily correspond to prisoners¹ educational needs. It also only accounts for a small fraction of the cost of a place in prison. Increased investments in prison education would probably be of added value for society as a whole. The study also points out the importance of crime prevention both to prisons and to society in general
