This ground-breaking book makes the case for adopting a
realist philosophical perspective for qualitative
research. Joseph Maxwell argues for critically applying a
realist ontology to a number of important theoretical and
methodological issues. This can provide a stronger
justification for what qualitative researchers do, he
contends, and significantly contribute to current
theories and practices. The book outlines critical
realism and considers its implications for how we
conceptualize meaning and culture, causation, and
diversity. The author applies critical realist ideas and
approaches to the design and methods of qualitative
research, and presents two in-depth case studies of
projects he conducted, describing how realist (and other)
perspectives informed the research, the methods, and the

Social Justice is a concept familiar to most Indians but
one whose meaning is not always understood as it
signifies a variety of government strategies designed to
enhance opportunities for underprivileged groups. By
tracing the trajectory of social justice from the
colonial period to the present, this book examines how it
informs ideas, practices and debates on discrimination
and disadvantage today. After outlining the historical
context for reservations for scheduled castes and
scheduled tribes that began under British colonial rule,
the book examines the legal and moral strands of demands
raised by newer groups since 1990. In addition the book
shows how the development of quota policies has been
significantly influenced by the nature and operation of
democracy in India. It describes the recent proliferation
of quota demands for reservations in higher education,

To overcome persistent institutional resistance and
barriers to change, the NSF ADVANCE institutional
transformation initiative, instituted in 2001, seeks to
increase the workforce participation of women faculty in
academic science and engineering through systematic
institutional transformation. This book assesses the
equity, diversity and inclusion outcomes of the changes
underway at 19 universities. The findings show that
targeted institutional transformation at these 19 U.S.
universities has resulted in significant increases in
women faculty-s workforce participation, as well as
improved gender equity and inclusion. Yet the results
also point to the overall continued underrepresentation
of women faculty in academic science and engineering at
the nation-s research universities.

The book includes accounts of racial violence from

disturbing events in their historical context and
providing suggestive analyses of their social,
psychological, and political causes and
implications. Grimshaw includes reports and studies of
racial violence from the slave insurrections of the
seventeenth century to urban disturbances of the 1960s.
The result is more than a descriptive record. Its
contents not only demonstrate the historical nature of
the problem but also provide a review of major
theoretical points of view. The volume defines patterns
in past and present disturbances, isolates empirical
generalizations, and samples the substantial body of
literature that has attempted to explain this ultimate
form of social conflict. .

cultural studies has been called into question, this book
seeks to generate debate. Focusing upon the actual

today, it asks whether or not cultural studies has really
managed to maintain a connection with its original

The need to regulate certain aspects of the market
economy is widely acknowledged. There are now many
agencies in India, which use institutional and legal
mechanisms to do this. Though regulation is intimately
related to law, it goes beyond it. A large body of the
standard literature on regulation has grown organically
in response to the markets in the United States and
Western Europe. The fourteen papers in this volume try to
understand the specific context within which regulation
has unfolded in India, under circumstances which are very
different from those in the United States and Western
Europe. It also dwells on how these regulatory issues
flow across national boundaries and affect the
international arena in this age of globalization.

contending that society needs government to intervene on
its behalf when the marketplace falters, others arguing
that government interference ultimately benefits neither
the market nor society. The author explores what has been
perhaps the central controversy in modern economics from
Smith to today. He traces the theory of market failure
from the 1840s through the 1950s and subsequent attacks
on this view by the Chicago and Virginia schools.

This insightful Handbook examines how labor unions across

neo-liberalism. Since the 1970s, the spread of neo-
liberalism across the world has radically reconfigured
the relationship between unions, employers and the state.
The contributors highlight that this is the major cause
and effect of union decline and argue that if there is to
be any union revitalisation and return to former levels
of influence, then unions need to respond in appropriate
political and practical ways. Written in a clear and
accessible style, the Handbook examines unions- efforts
to date in many of the major economies of the world,

The NHS computer project is the biggest and the most
expensive IT project in world history, but why is it
needed? What does it aim to achieve? This book spells out
the real objective of the programme. This is not simply a
plan to computerize our medical records, it is a project
to transform the way that the NHS works. This book is a
comprehensive but highly accessible examination of the
past, present and possible future of managing patient
data. The reader is introduced to the layers of computing
that will fit together to create a single patient record.
Patient security and confidentiality are discussed, along
with the practical issues surrounding the introduction of
the programme. The IT project has evolved from government
strategies, pilots and initiatives that date back over a
quarter of a century or more.

ISBN : 9781848728837.

This volume provides a tutorial review and evaluation of
scientific research on the accuracy and reliability of
eyewitness identification. The book starts with the
perspective that there are a variety of conceptual and
empirical problems with eyewitness identification as a
form of forensic evidence, just as there are a variety of
problems with other forms of forensic evidence. There is
then an examination of the important results in the study
of eyewitness memory and the implications of this
research for psychological theory and for social and
legal policy. The volume takes the perspective that
research on eyewitness identification can be seen as the
paradigmatic example of how psychological science can be
successfully applied to real-world problems.

xvi, 303p. 23cm.

In this book, the author focuses on three questions: Why
did privatization emerge as a preferred alternative for
managing urban water supply? Can privatization fulfill
its proponents- expectations, particularly with respect
to water supply to the urban poor? And, given the
apparent shortcomings of both privatization and
conventional approaches to government provision, what are
the alternatives? In answering these questions, the
author engages with broader debates over the role of the
private sector in development, the role of urban
communities in the provision of "public" services, and
the governance of public goods. She introduces the
concept of "governance failure" as a means of exploring
the limitations facing both private companies and

Making randomization tests accessible to many more

familiar statistical software, this book serves as an
introduction and provides macros to perform in the
familiar environments of SPSS and Excel. Though we expect
that the book will still appeal to researchers, we
believe the changes in the new edition will make the book
an essential aid for graduate and senior undergraduate
courses in statistics, data analysis, and/or research

clinical or counseling psychology), medicine, nursing,

A project can be simple or complex. In each case, proven
PM processes must be followed with a world systems view
of the project environment. Consequently, PM resources
are of high utility. This text fills the void that exists
in the availability of PM resources. Although individual
books dealing with management principles, optimization
models, and computer tools are available, there are few
guidelines for the integration of these three areas for
PM purposes. This book integrates these areas into a
comprehensive guide to PM. It introduces the triad
approach to improve the effectiveness of PM with respect
to schedule, cost, and performance constraints within the
context of systems modeling. It provides details on an
integrated systems PM approach that can help diminish the
adverse impacts of these issues through good project
planning, organizing, scheduling, and control. .
