The Prophets

release date: Mar 01, 2022
The Prophets
The prophets remain figures of enduring interest and importance in contemporary Judaism, Christianity, and even secular society. The Prophets introduces students to the rise of prophecy in ancient Israel, possible ancient Near Eastern parallels, the messages of individual prophets, and the significance of the compositional and editorial history of the prophetic writings. The book guides students into leading questions and issues in contemporary scholarship, and surveys different contemporary approaches to the messages of the prophets. Part 1 introduces the prophets and prophecy in context. The rise of prophecy, the role of the prophet, key themes, and the fate of prophecy are explored. Part 2 profiles Israel's prophets during the eighth century, the exile, and the postexilic period. This section will also look at each book of the prophets and how the prophetic writings fit within the complete Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament. These chapters also provide insights into interpreting the prophetic writings today, including Jewish and Christian interpretations, prophecy and prediction, and the secular legacy of Israelite prophecy. This textbook includes numerous images, charts, and maps to enhance the experience of the students.

The Refugee in International Law

release date: Sep 09, 2021
The Refugee in International Law
The status of the refugee in international law, and of everyone entitled to protection, has ever been precarious, not least in times of heightened and heated debate: people have always moved in search of safety, and they always will. In this completely revised and updated edition, the authors cast new light on the refugee definition, the meaning of persecution, including with regard to gender and sexual orientation, and the protection due to refugees and those affected by statelessness or disasters. They review the fundamental principle of non-refoulement as a restraint on the conduct of States, even as States themselves seek new ways to prevent the arrival of those in search of refuge. Related principles of protection—non-discrimination, due process, rescue at sea, and solutions— are analysed in light of the actual practice of States, UNHCR, and treaty-monitoring bodies. The authors closely examine relevant international standards, and the role of UNHCR, States, and civil society, in providing protection, contributing to the development of international refugee law, and promoting solutions. New chapters focus on the evolving rules on nationality, statelessness, and displacement due to disasters and climate change. This expanded edition factors in the challenges posed by the movement of people across land and sea in search of refuge, and their interception, reception, and later treatment. The overall aim remains the same as in previous editions: to provide a sound basis for protection in international law, taking full account of State and community interests and recognizing the need to bridge gaps in the regime which now has 100 years of law and practice behind it.

Buddhism

release date: Jan 01, 2020
Buddhism
"Why would everyone need to know anything about Buddhism? One important reason is that no matter who you are or where you live, Buddhism is part of your cultural environment. Whether we know it or not, most of us have Buddhist neighbors or communities of Buddhists living not far away. Now more than ever before mutual understanding between people from different cultural backgrounds is crucial. We live and work together. We share the same trains, schools, shopping centers, theatres, and everything else, and mutual understanding is the key to productive, peaceful co-existence. But getting along with others isn't the only reason to introduce yourself to Buddhism, nor even the best one. There is much that all of us can learn from each other, knowledge that may in fact prove to be quite useful in shaping our own ways of living. Many of us have been doing that for decades--taking an interest in cultural, religious, and philosophical traditions different from our own as a way to stretch our minds, to broaden our understanding not just of other people but of the many admirable ways to think about the world and the many ways to live creatively and responsibly within it. In this respect many people who were not raised Buddhists have discovered that Buddhism has a lot to offer. Among the world's religions it is certainly unique. Indeed, even though Westerners have been interested in Buddhism for almost two centuries, debate still continues over what Buddhism is. Is it a religion? A philosophy? A way of life? A set of techniques for mental and psychological enhancement? It appears to function in all of these ways and continues to impress observers with the range of values it offers"--

Language and Social Relations

release date: Dec 01, 2021
Language and Social Relations
Language is associated with social relations and is a channel for people to participate in various social activities. This captivating volume explores the significant role of language in different aspects of social life, including identity, class, ancestry, gender relations, status, and hierarchy. Language plays various roles in society, plus society also works in a similar manner. If one of them does not exist, the other will be impacted. Language is the main tool used for communication, establishing social peace and direction, demonstrating authority and power, and achieving goals. For this reason, some of the topics discussed in this volume include: chapter 3: language and culture chapter 4: social class and language chapter 5: psychology of language development, chapter 6: social interaction, and chapter 7: social explanation of cognitive development. However, if used improperly, language can also destroy society. It must abide by the societal rules to avoid conflicts and cover the boundaries of personal differences. The volume uses data from various languages and societies to show that language is not just a basic form of social behavior. It is equally an effective tool for people to develop models of social behavior. Anyone interested in the connection between language, society, and culture will welcome this volume.

The UX Book

release date: Nov 02, 2018
The UX Book
The discipline of user experience (UX) design has matured into a confident practice and this edition reflects, and in some areas accelerates, that evolution. Technically this is the second edition of The UX Book, but so much of it is new, it is more like a sequel. One of the major positive trends in UX is the continued emphasis on design—a kind of design that highlights the designer’s creative skills and insights and embodies a synthesis of technology with usability, usefulness, aesthetics, and meaningfulness to the user. In this edition a new conceptual top-down design framework is introduced to help readers with this evolution. This entire edition is oriented toward an agile UX lifecycle process, explained in the funnel model of agile UX, as a better match to the now de facto standard agile approach to software engineering. To reflect these trends, even the subtitle of the book is changed to “Agile UX design for a quality user experience . Designed as a how-to-do-it handbook and field guide for UX professionals and a textbook for aspiring students, the book is accompanied by in-class exercises and team projects. The approach is practical rather than formal or theoretical. The primary goal is still to imbue an understanding of what a good user experience is and how to achieve it. To better serve this, processes, methods, and techniques are introduced early to establish process-related concepts as context for discussion in later chapters. Winner of a 2020 Textbook Excellence Award (College) (Texty) from the Textbook and Academic Authors Association A comprehensive textbook for UX/HCI/Interaction Design students readymade for the classroom, complete with instructors’ manual, dedicated web site, sample syllabus, examples, exercises, and lecture slides Features HCI theory, process, practice, and a host of real world stories and contributions from industry luminaries to prepare students for working in the field The only HCI textbook to cover agile methodology, design approaches, and a full, modern suite of classroom material (stemming from tried and tested classroom use by the authors)

First Corinthians

release date: Apr 07, 2021
First Corinthians
First Corinthians is without a doubt a letter of great importance for the life of the believers in Christ and the development of a healthy ministry. Dr. Gary S. Shogren give us a commentary that is rich in practical application and at the same time one that demonstrates how the cultural context plays a factor of major importance in the interpretation of the text. His expertise in New Testament Greek is also one of the great highlights of this commentary, which doesn't represent an obstacle but one of the book advantages instead, in particular because he uses the transliteration of the Greek words, making this commentary an invaluable resource for pastors and church members and not only for scholars.Jesús Escudero Kerigma Theological Seminary

The Authority Trap

release date: Sep 15, 2017
The Authority Trap
Not all international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) are created equal, Some have emerged as "leading INGOs" that command deference from various powerful audiences and are well-positioned to influence the practices of states, corporations, and other INGOs. Yet Sarah S. Stroup and Wendy H. Wong make a strong case for the tenuous nature of this position: in order to retain their authority, INGOs such as Greenpeace, Oxfam, and Amnesty International refrain from expressing radical opinions that severely damage their long-term reputation. Stroup and Wong contend such INGOs must constantly adjust their behavior to maintain a delicate equilibrium that preserves their status. Activists, scholars, and students seeking to understand how international organizations garner and conserve power—and how this affects their ability to fulfill their stated missions—will find much of value in The Authority Trap. The authors use case studies that illuminate how INGOs are received by three main audiences: NGO peers, state policymakers, and corporations. In the end, the authors argue, the more authority an INGO has, the more constrained is its ability to affect the conduct of world politics.

Indeed, the analysis of nonindependent observations is treated in some detail, including models of nonindependent data with continuously varying predictors as well as standard repeated measures analysis of variance. This approach also provides an integrated introduction to multilevel or hierarchical linear models and logistic regression.
