The Times Great Letters: A century of notable correspondence
The Times has the most famous letters page of any newspaper. This delightful selection of over 300 items of correspondence over the last century shows precisely why. As a forum for debate, playground for opinion-formers, advertising space for decision-makers and noticeboard for eccentrics, nothing rivals it for entertainment value. By turns well-informed, well-intentioned, curious, quirky and bizarre, since 1914 it has taken the temperature of the British way of life and provided a window on the national character. Among those who have written to The Times to have their say are some of the major political and literary figures of the modern era, including Margaret Thatcher, Benito Mussolini, Graham Greene and John Le Carre. There are contributions, too, from Agatha Christie, Alastair Campbell, AA Milne, Yehudi Menuhin, Theresa May and Morrissey. If you want to know why kippers are dyed, who first turned up their trousers, how to make perfect porridge or just how to have a letter printed in The Times, this infinitely witty, diverting and memorable anthology should be, sincerely, yours.

The turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s spawned a spectrum of activist movements. In spirit and action, events ranged from: gentle to violent; from Tree People to Bloody Sunday; from Community Mental Health to Black Power. This rapid stream of social and political change defined the second half of the 20th century, yet had roots in the first half. The baby boom generation launched many movements. Unlike their Depression/WWII parents, the boomers, a large cohort of unattached, young adults, had no looming familial and social responsibilities. They had the freedom and resources for the consuming task of changing the world.

The Max Weber Dictionary: Key Words and Central Concepts, Second Edition
Max Weber is one of the world's most important social scientists, but he is also one of the most notoriously difficult to understand. This revised, updated, and expanded edition of The Max Weber Dictionary reflects up-to-the-moment threads of inquiry and introduces the most recent translations and references. Additionally, the authors include new entries designed to help researchers use Weber's ideas in their own work; they illuminate how Weber himself thought theorizing should occur and how he went about constructing a theory. More than an elementary dictionary, however, this work makes a contribution to the general culture and legacy of Weber's work. In addition to entries on broad topics like religion, law, and the West, the completed German definitive edition of Weber's work (Max Weber Gesamtausgabe) necessitated a wealth of new entries and added information on topics like pragmatism and race and racism. Every entry in the dictionary delves into Weber scholarship and acts as a point of departure for discussion and research. As such, this book will be an invaluable resource to general readers, students, and scholars alike.

Beyond Relativism: Comparability in Cultural Anthropology
Can elements of one culture-kinship relations, for example-be profitably compared to similar elements in other cultures? According to much anthropological thinking of recent decades, the answer is 'no.' Cultures are closed systems, many people argue, and their internal elements can only be understood with respect to the culture as a whole. Cultural anthropologist Robert C. Hunt, drawing on his vast experience studying cultures around the world, here makes a powerful counter-argument that the various elements making up a culture not only can but must be compared across cultures if we are to understand them at all. Cultural comparison is not easy, and it cannot eliminate all ambiguity, but it is necessary if we are to develop a scientific understanding of how cultures work. This intriguing polemic will appeal to students of cultural anthropology, sociology, and ethnic studies, especially those interested in the theoretical grounding of these disciplines.

Forced Migration and Global Processes: A View from Forced Migration Studies
Migration is at the center of much of the discussion on globalization. Migrants move across borders and thus defy state-centered traditions. Migration is often caused or influenced by aspects of global change: the transformation of the world economy with the expansion of free trade, the modification of the world balance of power and the challenge of global insecurity, the emergence of the global environment as an important political issue, and the redefinition of the role of communities in shaping identities when faced with networks of migrants and diasporas. Forced Migration and Global Processes considers the crossroads of forced migration with three global trends: development, human rights, and security. This expert collection studies these complex interactions and aims to help determine what solutions may alleviate most of the human suffering involved in forced migrations.

Headstart in designing research proposals in the social sciences
Book & CD. This book bridges the gap between the theory and practice of writing research or funding proposals in the social sciences, including psychology, education and social work. It will give readers a clear understanding of the key concepts and principles of a research proposal and equip them with the skills needed to write and prepare a state-of-the-art document with a quantitative, qualitative or mixed-method orientation. Easy to read, this book nonetheless has been written in such a way as not to dilute the conceptual and terminological complexities involved. The book provides an overview of some of the most current insights into the field of proposal writing in the social sciences. Some of its key features include: Step-by-step guidelines to follow when writing a first research (or funding) proposal; Simple explanations of intricate concepts; Practical examples of actual research proposals that have been developed under the authors' guidance on a CD; A template on CD that could be used for particular research proposals; A section on writing a proposal for funding; Sections on the triangulation and crystallisation of ideas, which few other textbooks deal with; A section on referencing, figures and tables, and the use of bulleted points. All sections of the text are followed by practical exercises structured so as to gradually build up towards a 'submittable' proposal. Both nationally and internationally, novice and experienced researchers, lecturers, students and practitioners in the social sciences will find this book an extremely useful tool.

Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico contains a remarkable set of Ancestral Puebloan buildings. Occupied between AD 850 and 1150, Chaco appears to have been the cultural and political centre for much of what is now the Four Corners region. Many sites in the Chaco Culture National Historical Park have been continuously studied for more than a century. Vivian and Hilpert wrote this encyclopedic handbook to help organise the extensive amount of information available for Chaco, as well as to stimulate speculation and encourage further exploration. The result is a highly accessible but thorough reference. The Chaco Handbook includes more than 270 cross-referenced, alphabetical entries, more than 100 illustrations and maps, plus histories of Chaco's development and ensuing archaeological research. Entries address important Chacoan and related sites, place-names, archaeological and ethnographic terms, objects and architectural features, and institutions and individuals. This second edition includes a new preface, a new chapter on professional explanations for the Chaco Phenomena, additional entries, and revisions to existing entries. Useful to anyone with an interest in the Ancestral Puebloans, including specialists, this handbook will guide readers to greater exploration of Chacoan culture and the Chaco world.

Restless Revolutionaries: A History of Britain's Fight for a Republic
From regicides to revolutionaries; from fascists to anarchists; from Tom Paine to Tom Wintringham, this book is a history of noble ideals and crushing failures. Restless Revolutionaries takes us on a journey through British history, exploring our often rocky relationship with the ruling elite, whether that it is the government of the day or the monarchy. Clive Bloom reveals our surprising legacy of terrorism and revolution, reminding us that Britain has witnessed centuries of revolt, through three bloody civil wars in Ireland, the bombing campaigns by the IRA, two Welsh uprisings, one Lowland Scottish civil war, uprisings in Derbyshire and Kent, five attempts to assassinate the entire cabinet and seize London and numerous attempts to murder the royal family. From the 1970s to the present day over 23,000 British subjects have fought and died for the ideal of a fair republic.

Faith, Morality, and Civil Society
In this rich collection of essays, editors Dale McConkey and Peter Augustine Lawler explore the contributions that religious faith and morality can make to a civil society. Though the level of religious expression has remained high in the United States, the shift from traditional religious beliefs to a far more individualized style of faith has led many to contend that no faith commitment, collective or personal, should contribute to the vibrancy of a civil democratic society. Challenging those who believe that the private realm is the only appropriate locus of religious belief, the contributors to this volume believe that religion can inform and invigorate the secular institutions of society such as education, economics, and politics. Drawn from a wide variety of religious and moral traditions, these diverse essays show, from many perspectives, the important contribution religion has to make in the public square that is civil society.

Identity and Subsistence: Gender Strategies for Archaeology
Throughout human history, gender has served as one of the ways in which human beings form their identities and then make their way in the world. But it is not the only way: We also discover ourselves through race, age, class, and other categories. Increasingly, archaeologists are recovering evidence of the ways in which gender has been important in identity-formation in the past, especially in its interaction with other social factors. In Identity and Subsistence, a number of scholars look at how the idea of gender has worked with respect to the formation of the self, masculinity and femininity, human evolution, and the development of early agrarian and pastoralist societies.

This work, a compilation of essays by library professionals, consists of eight topical chapters covering all aspects of Scilken's contribution to the public library world, including the history and contents of The U*L, his achievements as library director, a summary of his accomplishments within the context of ALA, examples of his resolutions and communications, a summary of ideas for promotional use of library materials, his work mentoring, and supporting individual librarians, and his views on ethical professional service. An important read for library students and information professionals, and for individuals active in ALA. This title deserves a place on the shelves of every public library, preferably right next to a certain outspoken serial.
