Great Britain Index. décimale : 951.033 Résumé : Merchants of War and Peace challenges conventional arguments that the major driving forces of the First Opium War were the infamous opium smuggling trade, the defense of British national honor, and cultural conflicts between `progressive` Britain and `backward` China. Instead, it argues that the war was started by a group of British merchants in the Chinese port of Canton in the 1830s, known as the `Warlike Party`. Living in a period when British knowledge of China was growing rapidly, the Warlike Party came to understand China`s weakness and its members returned to London to lobby for intervention until war broke out in 1839. However, the Warlike Party did not get its way entirely. Another group of British merchants known in Canton as the `Pacific Party` opposed the war. In Britain, the anti-war movement gave the conflict its infamous name, the `Opium War`, which has stuck ever since. Using materials housed in the National Archives, UK, the First Historical Archives of China, the National Palace Museum, the British Library, SOAS Library, and Cambridge University Library, this meticulously researched and lucid volume is a new history of the cause of the First Opium War.

Great Britain Résumé : "The SAGE Handbook of Aging, Work and Society is a leading authoritative resource on research and thinking about the aging workforce. This impressive handbook brings together a collection of leading scholars who provide a thorough and global treatment of all aspects of aging connected to work. The chapters not only provide comprehensive summaries of the research literature, but deal with policy implications as well. This book is a vital reference for policy makers and researchers alike" - Paul Spector Distinguished University Professor of I/O Psychology, University of South Florida.
"The world is aging rapidly as declining birth rates, improved healthcare and greater longevity affect all the developed countries, and increasingly those in the global South. Yet as 'Aging, work and society' makes clear, governments, businesses and communities have done little to date to address the major implications that flow from pressure on healthcare systems, narrowing dependency ratios - with fewer working age adults needing to support ever growing older people- or the balance to be struck between keeping older people at work for longer without denying younger people opportunities for enhancement. In an impressive overview of the issues to be addressed, drawing on a wide range of intellectual disciplines, this handbook will make a major contribution to filling an evidence gap, and will surely stimulate new research to address the questions it raises" Alan Tuckett President of the International Council for Adult Education and Honorary Professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen

Titre : Race, housing & community : perspectives on policy & practice Type de document : e-book Auteurs : Harris BEIDER, Auteur Editeur : Chichester : WILEY-BLACKWELL Année de publication : 2012 Importance : xiii, 284 p. ISBN/ISSN/EAN : 978-1-4443-5446-1 Note générale : Index. Langues : Anglais (eng) Mots-clés candidats : Housing policy Great Britain. Community development Race discrimination Racism UNITED KINGDOM REINO UNIDO ROYAUME UNI RACISM RACISMO RACISME MINORITY MINORIDAD MINORITE Résumé : This book provides an important new contribution to debates around housing policy and its impact on community cohesion. There has never been a more prescient time to discuss these concepts: the book provides an interpretation of housing, race and community cohesion in a highly politicized and fluid policy context. It is designed to initiate discussion and debate but this should not be esoteric and limited to a group of academics. Rather the objective is to bridge academic and policy audiences in the hope that this fusion provides a basis for a new agenda to discuss these topics. Race and community have been key features of social housing policy over the last 20 years with many high-profile interventions, from the proactive approach by the Housing Corporation to support black and minority ethnic housing associations, to the influential Cantle Report documenting segregation in towns and cities following riots, and the National Housing Federation led Race & Housing Inquiry leading to sector wide recommendations to achieve equality. However, volume of policy interventions and reports has not been matched by academic outputs that co-ordinate, integrate and critically analyse ‘race', housing and community. Housing, Race & Community Cohesion is the first systematic overview of ‘race', housing and community during this tumultuous period. The material presented is robust and research based but also directly engages with issues around policy and delivery. It is designed to reflect the interests both of the academic research community and policy makers on both sides of the Atlantic. It is not rooted to specific policy interventions that could quickly date but instead focuses on developing new ways to analyse difficult issues that will help both students and practitioners now and in the future.

Great Britain ELDERLY PERSON PERSONA MAYOR PERSONNE AGEE RELATION RELACIÓN Résumé : 'Ageing in Society brings forth exciting new questions, fresh perspectives, and a necessary critical approach to key issues - this is indeed an authoritative introduction. The authors not only have made significant contributions to gerontology, but offer the reader considerations for what could be, not just what is, the design of old age in society. The book will inform students in ways that so many texts in the area, satisfied with comfortable bromides, do not' - Jaber Gubrium, Editor of Journal of Aging Studies, University of Missouri-Columbia 'This completely revised Third Edition of Ageing in Society presents one of the most comprehensive pictures of ageing today. Emphasising the dual processes of ageing societies and the experience of ageing, the book offers the reader - student or researcher alike - cogent discussions of the most up to date perspectives and evidence available. The contributors are all leading experts in their fields - comprising a range of important disciplines as they apply to ageing.Ageing in Society is a cutting edge text on one of the most important subjects facing the modern world - a must for all students of ageing' - Mike Bury, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of London 'The Third Edition of the comprehensive textbook Ageing in Society extends its scope to include continental Europe, allowing broader as well as deeper insights into recent trends in gerontology. Gerontologists and practitioners are urged not to stop reading before they have reached the insightful last chapter "Ageing into the future"!' - Professor Dorly Deeg, Editor-in-Chief European Journal of Ageing The Third Edition of this popular and widely-used text provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of ageing, exploring the key theories, concepts and methods which the behavioural and social sciences contribute to the subject. Thoroughly revised and updated, Ageing in Society reflects new trends in gerontology, incorporating recent developments in theory and research as well as major international and interdisciplinary perspectives.A new chapter on cognitive ageing has been added and key themes, such as social protection, retirement, health and illness, and cultural images of old age are also critically examined. Ageing in Society was developed by the British Society of Gerontology to fulfil the need for an authoritative introduction to social gerontology. As such, it is an ideal resource for students and lecturers in the social and behavioural sciences, as well as for students and practitioners in health and social care.
