    Title: ‘Criminal Tribe’ to ‘Primitive Tribal Group’ & the Role of Welfare State
    Sub-title: The Case of Lodhas in West Bengal, India
    Series: (Anthropology Research & Developments Series)
    By (author): Santanu Panda, Abhijit Guha
    ISBN10-13: 1634636856 : 9781634636858
    This book deals with the marginalisation of a minority tribal group (the Lodhas) in the West Bengal state of India and the role of a democratic welfare state in improving the living conditions of the tribe. The Lodha tribal community of West Bengal has a long history of drawing the attention of administrators, anthropologists, social activists and the media. In the colonial times, this community was designated as a 'criminal tribe' and carried the social stigma during the post-colonial period, although the Government created category after category (eg: 'Denotified' and 'Primitive Tribal Group') to designate this marginalised community. The grass root level reality, which emerged from media reports, anthropologists' accounts and activists' literature, revealed that the marginalisation of the Lodhas continued long after the Independence of the country. What seemed to lacking in the long narrative of the Lodhas is an empirical, comprehensive and specific location based field study on the assessment of the various attempts by the Government and the administration towards the process of development of this marginalised tribal community of West Bengal. Under this broader context, this book is a modest attempt to make a location based empirical assessment of the ground realities of the development of the Lodhas, which revealed from the beginning until today, the governmental attempts towards the improvement of the living conditions of the community which were misplaced, and as a result, the funds remained wasted and did not work at all, although variations in terms of utilisation were also observed. It is therefore recommended that a more careful and down to earth approach which is sensitive towards the needs of the community should be undertaken to demarginalise the Lodhas of West Bengal. The book would be helpful for the graduate students and instructors in Social Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, Economics, History, Public Administration, Development Studies, Social Work and Rural Development. It will be also useful for doctoral level students in the various branches of social science. The book would be of use to the government officials, policy makers, NGO workers and other development practitioners working in the field.

    Title: ‘L’Atelier Moderne’
    Sub-title: An Exploration of the Collaborative Process Between Performer & Composer in Vocal Music Theatre of the 21st Century
    Series: (Fine Arts, Music & Literature Series)
    By (author): Angelica Cathariou
    ISBN10-13: 153610891X : 9781536108910
    Book & CD. This book explores the collaboration between vocal performers and composers in vocal music theatre of the early 21st century, and, more specifically, the performer’s creative contribution to the compositional process. As part of the author’s research, she asked composers Theodore Antoniou, Leontios Hadjileontiadis, Roger Marsh and Thanasis Zervas to collaborate with her in the creation of music theatre pieces. An integral part of each collaboration was the exploration of the creative relationship between composer and performer during the composition of the works. Over the course of three years, meetings and practical sessions took place, in which the new pieces were discussed and tried out through constant interaction and sharing with the composers. In order to contextualise her research, the author discuss the work accomplished by the Atelier du Rhin in Colmar, France, particularly during the period from 1974-1998 – an organisation which encouraged contemporary creation, with a special focus on vocal music theatre – in which, to date, there has been little information and whose achievements have been largely overlooked. The findings from this research indicate that the conventional approach of the performer’s role merely as an interpreter of the score represents only a small part of the creative potential of the collaborative process in music-making. Other practical findings include substantial documentation, derived from the examination of literature relevant to the author’s investigative research, and a significant amount of data (including recordings, interviews and transcripts of meetings) collected in the course of the collaborative journey, which led to the creation of five new works.

    Title: “In Situ” Biomonitoring of a Polluted Environment by Wild Plant and Crop Plant Species
    Series: (Plant Science Research and Practices Series)
    By (author): Karol Mičieta Ph.D, Gustáv Murín Ph.D
    ISBN10-13: 153614276X : 9781536142761
    The original method of testing for pollution in the environment by means of wild and crop plant species is described, with practical examples explained in detail within this book.This original method was developed by authors and proved correct for industrial complexes like nickel plant dumps, a smelting plant and an aluminium factory as well as city environments experiencing a heavy traffic impact.For a demonstration of general usefulness, a collaborative study with Kuwait University was accomplished to show the impact of the first Gulf War to the environment.The study of radioactive contamination in the vicinity of the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power plant was finished in cooperation with the University of Wien, Austria.Promising results from the retrospective biomonitoring of polluted environments by means of pollen grains for herbal samples are also presented, detailing the situation at a chosen locality up to one hundred years prior.A list of wild and crop plant species as bioindicators is presented for practical use.This original method is extended by special chapters describing other authors’ parallel plant test of phytotoxicity and mutagenicity and practical examples of remediation of heavily polluted sites.In conclusion, the authors are underlying the remarkable ability of nature to recover from all anthropogenic interventions thanks to the mechanisms of auto-regulation, adaptation and resistance.As this book is based on the thirty years of the authors’ experiences, it covers the period between the years of 1966-2018, with 380 references from this field of research.

    Title: “Waste-to-Profit” (W-t-P)
    Sub-title: Value added Products to Generate Wealth for a Sustainable Economy. Volume 1
    Series: (Environmental Remediation Technologies, Regulations and Safety)
    Edited by: Linda Zikhona Linganiso
    ISBN10-13: 1536132357 : 9781536132359
    The fastest and unquestionable route to losing clients and the market share is to stop innovating. Pondering on strategies to take over market control, you will surely discover your formula going in, while failure will be sure to follow if you celebrate your successes for a long time without any novelty. Why not generate wealth from different waste streams available when it is possible to develop a business system for a sustainable industry? Innovative business empires will not only help you generate sustainable profit, but will skyrocket your name above all well-known entrepreneurs who have peculiar abilities to handle high impact projects in communities while protecting the environment at the same time. This book is designed to help venture capitalists know where to invest their money for maximum returns. Aside from this, entrepreneurs will find it useful as it guides readers to understand where investments should go based on the current status of bio-projects in South Africa and selected countries. The key drivers for Waste-to-Profit activities include raising environmental awareness, policies and regulations in places throughout selected countries including South Africa. This book highlights the current policies and regulations to fast track the development of new technologies for bio-projects in these countries; opportunities, barriers and policy implications are discussed extensively. Why not also help the academics, researchers and students translate research and development findings into something of value (perhaps, a product)? The days of basic research alone are gone. The time is nigh – if not already here – to learn to translate research and development findings into something of value, to generate revenues which are essential for economic development. Not only would this help the intellectuals develop new technologies/products to generate profit, but it will assertively assist the world to transition towards a knowledge economy, an economy where knowledge is the main engine for economic development. This book will identify gaps in the waste beneficiation projects value chain, to avoid performing research which is thirty years behind. Recent research and development on waste beneficiation is given extensively for the purpose of identifying the gaps and fast tracking R&D in South Africa as well as other selected countries, in order to develop a business system that will afford these countries a sustainable economy. Municipalities in different countries will learn to develop a strategy to add value to their different waste streams through value added products such as Biofuels, Bioplastics and Biobricks, to mention a few.

    The globalisation of commerce and science means that new structures of governance are required to handle new and novel situations, such as across state and institutional boundaries. Sound governance, including elements that encourage foresight, is an important ingredient of managing global and local crisis situations. These crises are ever more apparent as a result of interdependence between consumer, firms and states across the world, especially with the ever increasing advent of instantaneous and low cost communication. This book examines the role of governance in local and multi-national businesses and in local, national and international political forums and organisations.

    Title: International Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences Yearbook
    Sub-title: Volume II
    Series: (Psychiatry -- Theory, Applications & Treatments Series)
    Edited by: Nash Boutros
    ISBN10-13: 1622575660 : 9781622575664
    The idea of the International Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences (IPBN) was born as a result of the many occasions where, in the course of working on review articles or meta-analyses (MA) the author frequently encountered papers that needed to be included but were never translated into English. Usually an English abstract is available but this is never sufficient for the purposes of a detailed critical review or a close examination of the data as in meta-analyses. Most researchers simply ignore the published work and is observes the review or the MA uses English as a limiting term in the initial searches for relevant literature, thus weeding out all works done all over the world in other languages. While this is unfortunate, it is understandable as it is usually very expensive to accurately translate such data papers. Furthermore, while working on reviews or MAs one rapidly discovers the very many important works that were not published in English.
    Table of Contents:
    Preface to Volume II; IPBN Volume II Editorial Board; Synopses of represented journals; Psychotic Disorders; Epidemiological & diagnostic axis I gender differences in Dual-Diagnosis patients; Schizophrenia & lateralized brain dysfunction: an ERP study during monaural & dichotic listening; Observation on the Therapeutic Effect of Electroacupuncture Combined with Small Dose of Clozapine in Clinical Treatment of Refractory Schizophrenia; Brazilian Consensus on second-generation antipsychotics & metabolic disorders; Severe catatonic schizophrenia in a 17-year-old adolescent female.

    Title: (Mis)reading of Kurt Vonnegut
    Series: (Focus on Civilizations & Cultures Series)
    By (author): Said Mentak
    ISBN10-13: 1616685956 : 9781616685959
    When the fictional is fused with the real, the theoretical with the practical, and the line demarcating these spheres of knowledge is blurred there should be a new understanding of the function of literature in post-modern times. The book provides an essential practice of understanding postmodernism fiction by minutely tackling the work of one of the most widely read among the few grandmasters of American letters, Kurt Vonnegut, whose masterpieces, Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, and Breakfast of Champions, are dealt with in a postmodernist vein. The work raises questions as to the validity of traditional interpretation of a writer who has added the fantastic to the amazing fusion of reality and fiction without losing the Vonnegut touch.

    Title: (NON) Conventional Approaches Applied to the Study of Brazilian Aquifers
    Series: (Water Resource Planning, Development & Management Series)
    By (author): Daniel Marcos Bonotto, Edson Gomes de Oliveira
    ISBN10-13: 1616687703 : 9781616687700
    The Earth's water is always in movement, and the water cycle describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. Thus, the water cycle describes the processes that drive the movement of water throughout the hydrosphere, whilst a reservoir represents the water contained in different steps within the cycle. In general, there is a relationship between the mineral composition of natural water and that of the solid minerals with which the water has been in contact. This relationship may be comparatively simple and uncomplicated, as in the case of an aquifer receiving direct recharge by rainfall and from which water is discharged without contacting any other aquifer or other water. This book discusses how different techniques can be utilised to investigate the water movement in different aquifer systems occurring in Brazil.
    Table of Contents:

    Title: (Participatory) Action Research
    Sub-title: Principles, Approaches and Applications
    Series: (Research Methodology and Data Analysis)
    Edited by: Joseph Calder, Jacob Foletta
    ISBN10-13: 1536130419 : 9781536130416
    In this book, authors present current research on the implementation of reform mathematics in order to identify, explore, and evaluate five specific goals. Students were presented with problem solving activities that correlated with real-world situations. During this process, students tracked their confidence and growth as mathematicians. Next, the ways in which students learn to effectively engage in natural discussions related to the literature they are reading are examined. Barriers to the implementation of literature circles in the classroom are discussed, and ideas for successful execution are highlighted. Action research (AR) leaders’ roles are explored through two studies, with the frame constituting of K-20 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and how participant engagement leads to AR project insight. The authors provide suggestions for future AR leaders. Afterwards, this compilation goes on to discuss how teaching Participatory Action Research (PAR) in MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning has led to focus on the responsibilities of action researchers and their obligations to the communities and places in which they work; and the importance of building the capacity of community members so that they can take control of the research being done about, with, and for them. The authors explore the way in which Curriculum Studies have addressed relevance and by proposing a framework for the study of curriculum relevance in general, which was adapted from literature on Science Education. The proposal considers three dimensions of relevance: societal, vocational, and individual. A chapter is included which fully addresses the analysis of one of the cases developed in the authors’ previous work, in which students have to reconstruct their memories about the experiences they had during compulsory education in order to compare them with the experiences they have during the practicum. The authors share their concerns about the process of accompaniment, the process of student participation in the design and assessment of the subjects, and the search for situated and transformative learning in a university context. The book proposes the use of action research in higher education, especially in programs that use practical approaches such as residency programs in healthcare. The text also discusses similar themes such as andragogy, meaningful learning, active learning, and systemic thinking. Additionally, a teacher-driven approach for changes in teaching chemical bonding was chosen, inspired by the PAR model suggested by Eilks and Ralle. The authors determine that remote networking of a teacher action researcher with a PAR-driven community of practitioners and academic educational researchers helped strengthen the process of research and development and contributed to strengthen the teacher’s continuous professional development. Subsequently, an application of participatory action research (PAR) conducted in Italy is illustrated. In describing the structure of action research, it can first be asserted that it is not a linear methodology of research but instead a cyclical process that proceeds through greater levels of complexity. In conclusion, the book aims to determine the relationship between the principles, approaches and applications of participatory action research (PAR) by using a case study of wood-carving workers. The authors maintain that although this project was successful in increasing health awareness of the workers and the community, long-term impact and sustainability of networking and activities need to be examined.
