On Television Large Print 16pt
On Television exposes the invisible mechanisms of manipulation and censorship that determine what appears on the small screen. Bourdieu shows how the ratings game has transformed journalism - and hence politics - and even such seemingly removed fields as law' science' art' and philosophy. Bourdieu had long been concerned with the role of television in cultural and political life when he bypassed the political and commercial control of the television networks and addressed his country's viewers from the television station of the College de France. On Television' which expands on that lecture' not only describes the limiting and distorting effect of television on journalism and the world of ideas' but offers the blueprint for a counterattack.

Displaced archives have long been a problem and their existence continues to trouble archivists, historians and government officials. Displaced Archives brings together leading international experts to comprehensively explore the current state of affairs for the first time. Drawing on case studies from around the world, the authors examine displaced archives as a consequence of conflict and colonialism, analysing their impact on government administration, nation building, human rights and justice. Renewed action is advocated through considerations of the legal approaches to repatriation, the role of the international archival community, ‘shared heritage’ approaches and other solutions. The volume offers new theoretical, technical and political insights and will be essential reading for practitioners, academics and students in the field of archives, cultural property and heritage management, as well as history, politics and international relations.
Street Gangs The New Urban Insurgency
The intent of this monograph is to identify some of the most salient characteristics of contemporary criminal street gangs (that is, the gang phenomenon or third generation gangs), and to explain the linkage to insurgency. As a corollary, Dr. Max G. Manwaring argues that gang-related crime, in conjunction with the instability it wreaks upon governments, is now a serious national security and sovereignty problem in important parts of the global community. Although differences between gangs and insurgents exist, in terms of original motives and modes of operation, this linkage infers that the gang phenomenon is a mutated form of urban insurgency. That is, these nonstate actors must eventually seize political power to guarantee the freedom of action and the commercial environment they want. The common denominator that can link gangs and insurgents is that some gangs' and insurgents' ultimate objective is to depose or control the governments of targeted countries.
The Plural Actor
The individual that the social sciences take as an object is most often studied in a particular context or from a single dimension. The actor is analysed as a student, worker, consumer, spouse, reader, sportsperson, a voter etc. However, in societies where individuals live often through simultaneously and successively heterogeneous and sometimes contradictory social experiences, each person inevitably carries a plurality of roles, ways of seeing, feeling and acting. The aim of this study is to consider the ways in which this plurality of worlds and experiences are incorporated into the being of each individual and to observe the individual's actions in a variety of settings. In addition to his sociological viewpoint, the author engages with psychology, history, anthropology and philosophy. His reflections lead him to embark on a program of psychological sociology to highlight the complexities of this plural view of the social.
Community Forestry in Canada
This book brings together the work of over twenty-five researchers to provide a comparative and empirically rich portrait of community forestry policy and practice in Canada. Tackling all forestry regions from Newfoundland to British Columbia, it unearths the history of community forestry across the nation, demonstrating strong regional differences tied to patterns of policy-making and cultural traditions. Case studies reveal innovative practices in governance and ecological management but also uncover challenges related to government support and market access. This book also considers the future of the sector, including the role of institutional reform, multiscale networks, and adaptive management strategies.

Trait de neuropsychologie de l enfant
La neuropsychologie de l'enfant concerne un champ d'étude relativement récent et en même temps très vaste. Le but de cet ouvrage est de fournir une vue d'ensemble des connaissances scientifiques qui se sont accumulées au cours de ces dernières années, et ceci pour les principales fonctions cognitives ainsi que les populations les plus fréquemment examinées en neuropsychologie de l'enfant, en passant des troubles développementaux avec ou sans cause cérébrale et génétique clairement définie aux lésions acquises telles que le traumatisme crânien ou l'accident vasculaire cérébral. Une première série de chapitres situera les troubles cognitifs dans le cadre de la dynamique développementale qui caractérise la neuropsychologie de l'enfant, permettant de fournir une compréhension la plus complète possible des difficultés constatées. Une deuxième série de chapitres sera de nature davantage syndromique, en présentant les troubles cognitifs associés aux traumatismes crâniens, aux troubles épileptiques, aux principaux syndromes génétiques ainsi qu'à d'autres troubles développementaux tels que les troubles attentionnels avec ou sans hyperactivité et l'autisme. Dans les cas pertinents, les principaux outils d'évaluation disponibles seront développés et des pistes rééducatives discutées.
