The indigenous Sami people of Scandinavia and European Russia have undergone incredible changes in recent years. The only European ethnic group to be recognized as an aboriginal people, the Sami have been divided by national borders for centuries. They are economically and culturally diverse and speak several dialects of the Sami language. The common perception of the Sami as reindeer herders is increasingly inaccurate as they enter the global system as writers, artists, and political activists. This volume is perhaps the only one written from the Sami perspective that is available in English. Beautifully illustrated with color photos, historic maps, and illustrations, The Sami People situates the Sami within a modern context with a rich appreciation of their ancient history. Color photographs juxtapose "traditional" Sami dress and lifestyle with modern art and handicrafts demonstrating how the Sami have interpreted twenty-first century life. A unique resource on the Sami people, this volume is a significant contribution to the literature on circumpolar peoples. An excellent choice for instructors in anthropology, history, and sociology, The Sami People will also appeal to casual readers who are interested in Scandinavia, Native peoples, and European history.

Wovon reden wir, wenn wir von „japanischer“, „chinesischer“ oder „koreanischer Küche“ reden? Der Schwerpunkt Der globalisierte Gaumen: Ostasiens Küchen auf Reisen wurde so konzipiert, dass er die vielfältigen Dimensionen und Effekte der Globalisierung beispielhaft an den „Reisen“ ostasiatischer Küchen zum Vorschein bringt. Die zwölf Beiträge beleuchten neben Kapital-, Personen- und Warenverkehr vor allem historische und kulturelle Faktoren. Originalität, Tradition und Authentizität sind thematische Knotenpunkte. Die Vielfalt der Problemstellungen spiegelt sich in der Bandbreite der methodischen Zugänge und Perspektiven. Abgerundet wird dieser Teil durch zwei Dokumentationen zur kulinaristischen Forschung. Mit der Kulinaristischen Ökologie wird ein neuer Denkansatz aus dem Bereich der Lebens- und Umweltwissenschaften für das Feld der Kulinaristik vorgestellt. Dieser soll die ökologischen Konsequenzen und weltweiten Eingriffsfolgen aufzeigen, die dem Groß-Ökosystem ‘Erde’ und seinen großlandschaftlichen Subsystemen durch Nahrungsbeschaffung für eine ungebremst wachsende Weltbevölkerung erwachsen. Die Beiträge zum Thema Das Gericht loten mit den Mitteln von Wortsemantik und Etymologie, von praxisorientierter Begriffsgeschichte wie mit dem Versuch einer optisch unterfütterten Möbel- und Designgeschichte seine Vieldeutigkeit aus, abgerundet durch ein close reading von italienischer Gegenwartsliteratur im Blick auf eine neue Essensmoral. Der Teil Varia besucht u.a. mit den Bahnhofsgaststätten einen für das kulturelle Gedächtnis Europas markanten transitorischen Ort. The special focus of vol. 2 of the series "Jahrbuch fuer Kulinaristik" is on: Der globalisierte Gaumen: Ostasiens Küchen auf Reisen/The Globalized Palate: Travelling East Asian Cuisines, pp. 16-380. The focus explores, through a variety of approaches, issues of identity, historical dimensions, socio-economic mechanisms, and political agendas of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cuisines in a globalized context. The altogether 14 original contributions by authors including Maren Möhring, Yoko Hiramatsu, Eric C. Rath, Eun-Jeung Lee, Thomas O. Hoellmann, James Farrer, Jennifer Robertson, Peter Kupfer, and others, with an introduction by Irmela Hijiya-Kirschnereit, are rounded off by two bibliographies: A select bi-lingual (German/English) bibliography of recent food and hospitality studies on East and Southeast Asia with Annotations and a comprehensive bi-lingual index, featuring studies in English, German, Japanese, Korean, and French, as well as a list of recent and ongoing graduation theses in German-speaking countries. The volume also features contributions on Ecology and Culinary Studies, the complex relationships between meals and law, and an essay on literary representations of station restaurants as liminal spaces.

Praise for the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series "A major stumbling block to the adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, which has all of these characteristics and more." —Edward J. Mullen, Willma and Albert Musher Chair Professor, Columbia University State-of-the-art, empirical support for psychosocial treatment of schizophrenia Part of the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, Psychosocial Treatment of Schizophrenia provides busy mental health practitioners with detailed, step-by-step guidance for implementing clinical interventions that are supported by the latest scientific evidence.

Each chapter serves as a practitioner-focused how-to reference and covers interventions that have the best empirical support for the psychosocial treatment of schizophrenia, including: Cognitive behavioral therapy Assertive community treatment Critical time intervention Motivational interviewing for medication adherence Psychoeducational family groups Illness management and recovery Easy-to-use and accessible in tone, Psychosocial Treatment of Schizophrenia is an indispensable resource for practitioners who would like to implement evidence-based, compassionate, effective interventions in the care of people with schizophrenia.

This book provides broad coverage of relevant issues through perspectives ranging from that of society, the state and the economy as a whole, and finally, through the focus on one particular very large state-owned enterprise undergoing restructuring, privatization and the search for a strategic investor. This book's unique angle will examine the linkages between the systemic economic changes, the policy changes and the strategic organizational responses. The longitudinal case study approach promotes deeper insights into the multi-faceted, complex processes of transition. Each perspective is original in its approach and taken together they provide a series of unique and revealing images of the transition process. As Poland approaches the 10 year anniversary of transition it is appropriate to publish a book which prompts reflections on the whole process and hopefully contributes to understanding of some of the lessons learned. The book offers lessons in the key transitional issues of sequencing, timing and methods of privatization and the factors which both delay and promote adaptation to the market economy. It will also reveal how the national political situation has a dominant influence over micro level restructuring and modernization.

»Eddie Izzard ist der Jedi unter den Stand-Up-Comedians. Inspirierend, surreal, universal, visionär.« Michael Mittermeier Er liebt High Heels und lackierte Fingernägel. Er lief 27 Marathons an 27 Tagen, um an die Inhaftierung Mandelas zu erinnern. Er gilt als witzigster Mann Großbritanniens und trifft auch weltweit den Lachnerv — mit Gags über Hitler, Hunde, Darth Vader in der Todesstern-Kantine und Fische, die mit Fischen reden. Eddie Izzard, Humorgenie und Cross-Dresser, erzählt sein bewegtes Leben. In seiner Autobiographie »Believe Me« schildert der Entertainer lakonische, ergreifende und schreiend komische Episoden aus seinem Leben: von einer verlustreichen Kindheit, vom Entdecken einer komplizierten Sexualität, von ersten Comedy-Versuchen auf den Straßen Londons — und von seinem Plan, die Briten eines Tages zurück in die EU zu führen.
