This hugely popular text provides students with
straightforward principles and frameworks for
understanding methodology. Authors are adept at making
methodology meaningful for beginners and more advanced
readers alike. Their book clearly demonstrates how
methodology impacts upon every stage of the research
process, and gives readers all of the tools that they
need to understand it. Readers are encouraged to reflect
on their own practice at every step, meaning that the
book remains extremely relevant throughout. It will be
invaluable for all students who are doing a dissertation
or taking a research methods module in education, the
social sciences, business and health.

The human capacity to abstract complex systems and
phenomena into simplified models has played a critical
role in the rapid evolution of our modern industrial
processes and scientific research. As a science and an
art, Modelling and Simulation have been one of the core
enablers of this remarkable human trace, and have become
a topic of great importance for researchers and
practitioners. This book was created to compile some of
the most recent concepts, advances, challenges and ideas
associated with Intelligent Modelling and Simulation
frameworks, tools and applications. Authors believe, that
this book is a valuable reference to researchers and

This book will change the way professors teach courses on
popular culture and media criticism, with the goal of
empowering students to make their own critiques of mass-
mediated culture. Written in a conversational tone and
illustrated with the author-s original whimsical
drawings, the text is designed to be accessible to
students. The text starts by outlining four prominent
methods of media analysis: semiotic analysis, Marxist
analysis, psychoanalytic criticism, and sociological
analysis. This edition offers expanded coverage on areas
such as society and semiotics, consumer culture, and the
Frankfurt School. The application section asks students
to apply tools of media analysis to texts including
popular films and TV shows, print advertisements, news
radio, video games, and the use of cell phones and social

The author provides a cutting-edge investigation of the
challenging debates around belonging and the politics of
belonging. Alongside the hegemonic forms of citizenship
and nationalism which have tended to dominate our recent
political and social history, the author examines
alternative contemporary political projects of belonging
constructed around the notions of religion,
cosmopolitanism, and the feminist ethics of caret. The
book also explores the effects of globalization, mass
migration, the rise of both fundamentalist and human
rights movements on such politics of belonging, as well
as some of its radicalized and gendered dimensions. A
special space is given to the various feminist political
movements that have been engaged as part of or in
resistance to the political projects of belonging.

economies and societies based on an unsustainable model
of speculative finance and political irresponsibility.

This book is the most serious economic crisis since the
Great Depression, and although many have explored its
causes, relatively few have focused on its consequences.
Unlike earlier crises, no new paradigm seems yet to have
come forward to challenge existing ways of thinking and
neo-liberalism has emerged relatively unscathed. This
crisis, characterized by remarkable policy stability, has
lacked a coherent and innovative intellectual response.
This book however systematically explores the
consequences of the crisis, focusing primarily on its
impact on policy and politics. It asks how governments
responded to the challenges that the crisis has posed,
and the policy and political impact of the combination of

This book highlights the interconnections between three
framing concepts in the development of modern Western
law: religion, race, and rights. Highlighting the
historical interconnections between religion, race, and
rights aids our understanding of contemporary socio-legal
issues. In the 21st century, the economic might of the US
and the West often leads to a myopic vision of law and a
belief in its universal application. This ignores the
cultural specificity of Western legal concepts and
prevents us from appreciating that, analogous to previous
colonial periods, in a global political economy, Anglo-
American law is not always transportable, transferable,
or translatable across political landscapes and religious
communities. It can be used by undergraduate and graduate
law students studying legal studies, anthropology,
history, political science, and criminal justice.

Human right to water : significance, legal status and

Oxford: Hart Publishing, 2012.
viii, 340p, 24cm.
ISBN : 9781849462839.
341.4 WIN 136422
In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly and the
Human Rights Council recognized the human right to water.
This formal recognition has put the issue high on the
international agenda, but, by itself, leaves many
questions unanswered. This book addresses this gap and
clarifies the legal status and meaning of the right to
water through a detailed analysis of its legal
foundations, legal nature, normative content, and
corresponding State obligations. The human right to water
has wide-ranging implications for the distribution of
water. Examining these implications requires putting the
right to water into the broader context of different
water uses, and analyzing the linkages and competition
with other human rights that depend on water for their
realization. Water allocation is a highly political issue
reflecting societal power relations, with current
priorities often benefiting the well-off and
powerful. Human rights, in contrast, require prioritizing
the most basic needs of all people. The human right to
water has the potential to address these underlying
structural causes of the lack of access to water, rooted
in inequalities and poverty by empowering people to hold
the State accountable to live up to its human rights
obligations and to demand that people-s basic needs are
met with priority.

This book argues that these -multilevel governance

international public goods, such as inadequate legal,
judicial, and democratic accountability of governments
vis a-vis citizens. Rather than treating citizens as mere
objects of intergovernmental economic and environmental
regulation and leaving multilevel governance of
international public goods to discretionary -foreign
policy,- human rights and constitutional democracy call
for -civilizing- and -constitutionalzing- international
economic and environmental cooperation by stronger legal
and judicial protection of citizens and their

This work is the first history and evaluation of
contemporary American critical theory within its European
philosophical contexts. In the first part, Frank
Lentricchia analyzes the impact on our critical thought
of Frye, Stevens, Kermode, Sartre, Poulet, Heidegger,
Saussure, Barthes, Ltvi-Strauss, Derrida, and Foucault,
among other, less central figures. In a second part,
Lentricchia turns to four exemplary theorists on the
American scenetMurray Krieger, E. D. Hirsch, Jr., Paul de
Man, and Harold Bloomtand an analysis of their careers
within the lineage established in part one. Lentricchia-s
critical intention is in evidence in his sustained attack
on the more or less hidden formalist premises inherited
from the New Critical fathers.
