The Psychology of Prejudice - 2nd Edition by Lynne M Jackson (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 265Genre: PsychologySub-Genre: Social PsychologyFormat: PaperbackPublisher: American Psychological Association (APA)Age Range: AdultAuthor: Lynne M JacksonFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English About the Book This second edition presents a significantly updated overview the social, developmental, evolutionary, and personality roots of prejudice, along with contemporary examples of prejudicial attitudes and strategies for combating them. Book Synopsis Given the weaponization of cultural and ideological differences in politics, education, and social media today, the need to understand and fight prejudice is urgent. This second edition of Lynne Jackson's seminal text presents a significantly updated review of the psychological underpinnings of prejudicial attitudes and behaviors. Jackson synthesizes new research from various areas of psychology to analyze contemporary examples of prejudice, including anti-immigrant policies, police violence against minorities, anti-woman and LGBTQ backlash, and ageist cultural biases. She also explores frequently overlooked issues related to prejudice, such as environmental inequality and speciesism. Drawing from literature in social, developmental, evolutionary, and personality psychology, Jackson explores the environmental and biological roots of prejudice, explaining how societal factors and human predispositions shape how people understand and respond to diversity. She draws connections between prejudice and other social justice issues showing how it is related to greater social problems like inequality and political polarization. She also offers readers a blueprint for overcoming these deeply embedded biases by improving intergroup attitudes and building communities to create progressive social change. About the Author Lynne M. Jackson, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychology at King's University College at the University of Western Ontario. She has published widely on issues including gender discrimination, attitudes toward immigrants and immigration, and religious intergroup relations. Dr. Jackson's current research examines how people's attitudes toward other groups, the environment, and non-human animals function collectively to challenge or sustain inequality and exploitation. She is also a reviewer for numerous social psychology journals. Lynne Jackson lives near London, Ontario, Canada.

Number of Pages: 492Genre: Language + Art + DisciplinesSub-Genre: Language ArtsSeries Title: Linguistics in the WorldFormat: PaperbackPublisher: John Wiley & SonsAge Range: AdultBook theme: Phonetics & PhonologyAuthor: ZsigaFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English Book Synopsis The Sounds of Language is an introductory guide to the linguistic study of speech sounds, which provides uniquely balanced coverage of both phonology and phonetics. Features exercises and problem sets, as well as supporting online resources at www.wiley.com/go/zsiga, including additional discussion questions and exercises, as well as links to further resources such as sound files, video files, and useful websites Creates opportunities for students to practice data analysis and hypothesis testing Integrates data on sociolinguistic variation, first language acquisition, and second language learning Explores diverse topics ranging from the practical, such as how to make good digital recordings, make a palatogram, solve a phoneme/allophone problem, or read a spectrogram; to the theoretical, including the role of markedness in linguistic theory, the necessity of abstraction, features and formal notation, issues in speech perception as distinct from hearing, and modelling sociolinguistic and other variations Organized specifically to fit the needs of undergraduate students of phonetics and phonology, and is structured in a way which enables instructors to use the text both for a single semester phonetics and phonology course or for a two-course sequence From the Back Cover The Sounds of Language is an introductory guide to the linguistic study of speech sounds, giving equal weight to both phonology and phonetics. Integrating these two disciplines allows students to appreciate the relationship of phonology and phonetics to each other, and to identify areas of overlap and mutual concern. Theoretically grounded, the book explores the range of data that any theory must account for, and discusses important concepts and constructs that emerge from the data, such as the interacting roles of biology and cognition in creating sound inventories, perception as distinct from hearing, contrast, alternation, and markedness. Zsiga presents a critical overview of different approaches that have been used in tackling these issues, with opportunities for students to practice data analysis and hypothesis testing. Data on sociolinguistic variation, first language acquisition, and second language learning are integrated throughout the text, along with valuable exercises, problem sets, and online data and sound files. About the Author Elizabeth C. Zsiga is Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University, where she has been a faculty member since 1994, teaching phonology and phonetics to both graduate and undergraduate students, with concentrations in theoretical, applied, and socio-linguistics. She has been published in numerous linguistics journals and books. Her research describes the sound systems of diverse languages including English, Igbo, Korean, Russian, Setswana, Serbian, and Thai.

The book's primary aim is to provide a solid and relevant base of mathematical skills. It is an indispensable text and reference for computer scientists and serious programmers in virtually every discipline. Book Synopsis This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer programming and the analysis of algorithms. The primary aim of its well-known authors is to provide a solid and relevant base of mathematical skills - the skills needed to solve complex problems, to evaluate horrendous sums, and to discover subtle patterns in data. It is an indispensable text and reference not only for computer scientists - the authors themselves rely heavily on it! - but for serious users of mathematics in virtually every discipline. Concrete Mathematics is a blending of CONtinuous and disCRETE mathematics. More concretely, the authors explain, it is the controlled manipulation of mathematical formulas, using a collection of techniques for solving problems. The subject matter is primarily an expansion of the Mathematical Preliminaries section in Knuth's classic Art of Computer Programming, but the style of presentation is more leisurely, and individual topics are covered more deeply. Several new topics have been added, and the most significant ideas have been traced to their historical roots. The book includes more than 500 exercises, divided into six categories. Complete answers are provided for all exercises, except research problems, making the book particularly valuable for self-study. Major topics include: Sums Recurrences Integer functions Elementary number theory Binomial coefficients Generating functions Discrete probability Asymptotic methods This second edition includes important new material about mechanical summation. In response to the widespread use of the first edition as a reference book, the bibliography and index have also been expanded, and additional nontrivial improvements can be found on almost every page. Readers will appreciate the informal style of Concrete Mathematics. Particularly enjoyable are the marginal graffiti contributed by students who have taken courses based on this material. The authors want to convey not only the importance of the techniques presented, but some of the fun in learning and using them.

Spanish Translated Milady Standard Cosmetology - 13th Edition (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 1152Genre: Health + WellnessSub-Genre: Beauty & GroomingFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Milady PublishingAge Range: AdultAuthor: MiladyFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English Book Synopsis Milady has evolved for over 85 years to become what it is today, the cornerstone of beauty and wellness education. We are very excited and proud to announce the latest edition of Milady Standard Cosmetology, the most commonly used resource in cosmetology education. For decades since our first textbook published, it has been our commitment to provide students with the foundation in the principles and skills needed to master the science and art of cosmetology, and with this latest version that commitment has not waivered. For the new edition, celebrity stylist Ted Gibson served as Creative Director on the project. The result is a brilliant new design with over 750 new photos and a gorgeous layout, providing a visually stunning resource to engage today's learner. We also recruited a team of twelve authors, made up of top professionals and educators in the industry, to provide the most current information on concepts and techniques. During our extensive peer review and development process, we were asked for a resource that placed emphasis on essential content needed for licensure success, and we feel confident that we delivered. Milady Standard Cosmetology will continue to be a source of education that students can count on, not only while in school, but throughout their careers. Review Quotes "I really like how the procedures are broken down into smaller segments of application and procedures, they are easier to use, have clear steps and are not confusing for the students.""Left handed procedures has been done very effectively and will be a great help for left handed students.""Most impressively the book covers all content that the Cosmetologist will need to build a foundational career, including basic history, current concepts and future plans, along with substantial techniques in every area pertaining to Cosmetology. Secondly, I find the book to be very organized in relation to order of learning basic, intermediate, and advanced as you progress through the chapters. It is very easy to use in the school setting when starting with beginning students who have no knowledge, or with students of moderate background of the profession and continues to introduce more advanced technique as learning continues. The Chapter Outlines, Learning Objectives, and Key Terms are very organized and coincide with Chapter Subtitles and Chapter Glossary. This organization is super important to the average student who follows guides when well structured, such as this particular book."

Seapower - (Cass Series: Naval Policy and History) 4th Edition by Geoffrey Till (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 458Genre: HistorySub-Genre: MilitarySeries Title: Cass Series: Naval Policy and HistoryFormat: PaperbackPublisher: RoutledgeAge Range: AdultBook theme: NavalAuthor: Geoffrey TillFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English About the Book "This is the fourth, revised and updated, edition of Geoffrey Till's Seapower: A Guide for the 21st Century. The rise of the Chinese and other Asian navies, worsening quarrels over maritime jurisdiction and the United States' maritime pivot towards the Asia-Pacific region reminds us that the sea has always been central to human development as a source of resources, and as a means of transportation, information-exchange and strategic dominion. It has provided the basis for mankind's prosperity and security, and this is even more true in the early 21st century, with the emergence of an increasingly globalized world trading system. Navies have always provided a way of policing, and sometimes exploiting, the system. In contemporary conditions, navies, and other forms of maritime power, are having to adapt, in order to exert the maximum power ashore in the company of others and to expand the range of their interests, activities and responsibilities. While these new tasks are developing fast, traditional ones still predominate. Deterrence remains the first duty of today's navies, backed up by the need to 'fight and win' if necessary. How navies and their states balance these two imperatives will tell us a great deal about our future in this increasingly maritime century. This book investigates the consequences of all this for the developing nature, composition and functions of all the world's significant navies, and provides a guide for anyone interested in the changing and crucial role of seapower in the 21st century. Seapower is essential reading for all students of naval power, maritime security and naval history, and highly recommended for students of strategic studies, international security and International Relations."--Provided by publisher.

Rethinking Research in the Art Museum - by Emily Pringle (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 194Genre: Social ScienceSub-Genre: ArchaeologyFormat: PaperbackPublisher: RoutledgeAge Range: AdultAuthor: Emily PringleFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English Book Synopsis Rethinking Research in the Art Museum presents an original and radical perspective on how research can function as an agent of change in art museums today. The book analyses a range of art organisations and draws on numerous interviews with museum professionals to outline the limitations of existing models of museum research. Arguing for a more democratic formulation in tune with the current needs and ambitions of the art institution, Emily Pringle puts forward a framework for practitioner-led, co-produced research that redefines how knowledge is created in the museum. Recognising that museums today negotiate multiple agendas, the book outlines the value of constructing the art museum professional as a practitioner researcher and their work as a mode of practice-based research, be they educators, archivists, curators or conservators. Locating these arguments within the framework of new museology, critical pedagogy, professional and organisational studies and epistemology, the book offers insights and guidance for those interested in how art museums function and the role research plays within these complex institutions. Rethinking Research in the Art Museum provides a timely and important resource for museum professionals and scholars, students, artists and community members. It should be of particular interest to those invested in exploring how art museums can continue to make the most of their unique resources, whilst becoming more collaborative, inclusive and relevant to the twenty-first century. Review Quotes "In this provocative and timely study, Emily Pringle presents a powerful critique of deeply entrenched ways of thinking about research and knowledge creation within cultural institutions. Her original and insightful analysis reveals the enormous, largely untapped potential for practitioners working across the art museum to harness the power of collaborative research to foster radical and progressive change within their organisations." - Richard Sandell, Professor of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, UK "As a museum practitioner and researcher myself, I found this book very worthwhile. In my own experience, I have observed the divide between formalized research and day-to-day professional practice. This book stimulated me to ask questions of myself and my institution, and gave me a clear structure within which to consider the new research possibilities that arose in response to these." - Esther McNaughton, The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū About the Author Emily Pringle trained originally as a painter and worked freelance for several years as an artist, educator, researcher and programmer before joining Tate in 2010. In 2014 she established the Tate Research Centre: Learning (www.tate.org.uk/research/research-centres/tate-research-centre-learning). In 2017 she was awarded an AHRC Leadership Fellowship, which allowed her to take ten months away from Tate to explore and write on art museum research. She is currently Head of Research at Tate.

Culturally Proficient Coaching - 2nd Edition by Delores B Lindsey & Richard S Martinez & Randall B Lindsey & Keith T Myatt (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 216Genre: EducationSub-Genre: Multicultural EducationFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Corwin PublishersAge Range: AdultAuthor: Delores B Lindsey & Richard S Martinez & Randall B Lindsey & Keith T MyattFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English About the Book ""Culturally Proficient Coaching" presents a well-researched approach grounded in the development of trust among people to counteract the imbalance and polarization that exist in today's political, social, economic, and cultural environments that directly impact educational environments. It aligns two frameworks (Cultural Proficiency and Cognitive Coaching), both of which are grounded in the idea that change is a personal, inside-out process. The 2nd Edition of this book extends and enhances conversations about accountability and assessment of educator's work focused on closing instructional and opportunity gaps in North American schools. Although such gaps have persisted for generations, our schools now face increasingly polarized debates and counter-productive patterns of behavior than previously existed. Cultural Proficiency is an "inside-out" process in which educators critically examine their own attitudes, beliefs, practices, and actions that potentially minimize their effectiveness with students who "don't look them." They then focus on school-wide policies and practices that, similarly, marginalize underserved student groups"-- Book Synopsis Why a new edition of Culturally Proficient Coaching? Why now, especially? Because several polarizing years later, there's even greater urgency for us all to critically examine our attitudes, beliefs, and practices when working with students who look or sound "different." No matter how broadly you define coach, no matter which coaching model you follow, this is the resource to help you get started. With the first edition, the authors' big goal was to shift our thinking in service of standards-based teaching and leading, and equitable interactions that support all students achieving at highest levels. Now, with this second edition, the authors add a third goal: to encourage a more holistic mindset and expanded contextual uses. New features include: Enhanced research on the effectiveness of coaching in educational settings New data on response to implicit bias and microaggressions--subtle and unintentional, yet destructive, forms of discrimination that continue to marginalize Refinement and updating of the Tools of Cultural Proficiency, which enable you to provide equitable life-affirming experiences to all cultural groups Expanded models of Culturally Proficient Coaching Conversations A special section on crafting Breakthrough Questions to shift entrenched mindsets and barriers to Cultural Proficiency By design, Culturally Proficient Coaching is an intentional, inside-out approach that mediates a person's thinking toward values, beliefs, and behaviors that enable effective cross-cultural interactions and equitable learning environments. Here's your opportunity to serve as that expert and trusted mediator, boosting educators' cultural confidence and consciousness, while honing their coaching skills. "We owe it to ourselves and to our children to productively embrace and engage diversity, with all of its tensions, for the sustainability of humanity. These authors have given us the invitation, the road map, and the call to action. the embarkment is up to each one of us." --Carolyn M. McKanders, Director Emeritus Center for Adaptive Schools and Thinking Collaborative

Considered a cutting-edge statistical technique, the methodology underlying MIRT can be complex, and therefore doesn't receive much attention in introductory IRT courses. However author Wes Bonifay shows how MIRT can be understood and applied by anyone with a firm grounding in unidimensional IRT modeling. His volume includes practical examples and illustrations, along with numerous figures and diagrams. Multidimensional Item Response Theory includes snippets of R code interspersed throughout the text (with the complete R code included on an accompanying website) to guide readers in exploring MIRT models, estimating the model parameters, generating plots, and implementing the various procedures and applications discussed throughout the book.

Popular Music and the Politics of Hope - by Susan Fast & Craig Jennex (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 338Genre: MusicSub-Genre: History & CriticismFormat: PaperbackPublisher: RoutledgeAge Range: AdultAuthor: Susan Fast & Craig JennexFeatured book lists: TextbooksLanguage: English Book Synopsis In today's culture, popular music is a vital site where ideas about gender and sexuality are imagined and disseminated. Popular Music and the Politics of Hope: Queer and Feminist Interventions explores what that means with a wide-ranging collection of chapters that consider the many ways in which contemporary pop music performances of gender and sexuality are politically engaged and even radical. With analyses rooted in feminist and queer thought, contributors explore music from different genres and locations, including Beyoncé's Lemonade, A Tribe Called Red's We Are the Halluci Nation, and celebrations of Vera Lynn's 100th Birthday. At a bleak moment in global politics, this collection focuses on the concept of critical hope: the chapters consider making and consuming popular music as activities that encourage individuals to imagine and work toward a better, more just world. Addressing race, class, aging, disability, and colonialism along with gender and sexuality, the authors articulate the diverse ways popular music can contribute to the collective political projects of queerness and feminism. With voices from senior and emerging scholars, this volume offers a snapshot of today's queer and feminist scholarship on popular music that is an essential read for students and scholars of music and cultural studies. About the Author Susan Fast is Professor in the Department of English and Cultural Studies and Director of the Graduate Program in Gender Studies & Feminist Research at McMaster University. She is co-editor of Music, Politics, and Violence (2012), and author of Michael Jackson's Dangerous (2014) and In the Houses of the Holy: Led Zeppelin and the Power of Rock Music (2001).
