Publisher: McGraw-Hill Education (UK)
This book examines the power relationships that organize and facilitate quality assurance in higher education. It investigates power in terms of macro systems of accountability, surveillance and regulation, and uncovers the ways in which quality is experienced by academics and managers in higher education. Louise Morley reveals some of the hidden transcripts behind quality assurance and poses significant questions: * What signs of quality in higher education are being performed and valued? * What losses, gains, fears and anxieties are activated by the procedures? * Is the culture of excellence resulting in mediocrity? Quality and Power in Higher Education covers a wide range of issues including: the policy contexts, new managerialism, the costs of quality assurance, collegiality, peer review, gender and equity implications, occupational stress, commodification and consumer values in higher education, performance, league tables, benchmarking, increasing workloads and the long-term effects on the academy. It draws upon Morley's empirical work in the UK on international studies and on literature from sociology, higher education studies, organization studies and feminist theory. It is important reading for students and scholars of higher education policy and practice, and for university managers and policy-makers.

One of the greatest challenges facing mankind today is the need to find a faith that will serve modern man and his problems. The lack of such a faith could explain why so many people are becoming drop-outs from Christianity. Eric Butterworth's book is a result of the author's personal search for a practical day-to-day Christianity. The greatest discovery of all time, he says in The Power Within, was that made by Jesus of the divine dimension in every human being. Christianity, says the author, has emphasised the divinity of Jesus, but Jesus Himself taught the divinity of man. His most vital mission on earth was to help man discovers this. The entire Gospel message deals with techniques for unfolding this divine potential, and Eric Butterworth's book, in its close relationship to the teaching of Jesus, is thus a valuable self-help book for modern men and women who are seeking a truly full way of life. Like Emmet Fox, the author asks, 'What did Jesus really teach?', and the direct and simple answers he presents should bring great comfort to many who have forgotten even to ask the question.

Within good time the book became so much more it became a guideline to living in a new state and a new positive / productive way.

underscores the need for higher education research, ... given their breadth and
the fact that they have always reflected the political intricacies of the government in power.
Author: Frederick K. Byaruhanga
This book, the first of its kind to treat Uganda, provides a historical analysis of the role of student voices in the development of Uganda's higher education. It not only chronicles incidents of student protests, but also explores and analyses their trigger points as well as the strategies employed by the university, the government, and the students to manage or resolve those crises. In addition, the book highlights the role played by national politics in shaping student political consciousness, in particular their involvement in protests, riots and demonstrations. The book, therefore, limits its scope to the unfolding and impact of student crisis on the process of higher education. Byaruhanga recommends that colleges and universities need to increase communication with students, as well as promote student involvement in decision and policy making, among other things, in order to forestall future conflicts. Most distinctively, the book aims to address the current paucity of research on student activism in Uganda's higher education, and highlights the critical need for research on higher education in Africa as a field of study. The book also may serve as a base for cross-national comparative analysis.

Far too little is known about alcoholism and recovery from it. Binge drinking and a myriad other related alcohol problems are rampant. While a few of us know the differences between alcoholism and alcohol abuse, we have all seen the harmful effects of alcoholism and alcohol abuse. Beyond the damage they do to themselves, heavy drinkers adversely affect their families, friends and work colleagues. The demands on social and health care services are seriously underestimated. Martin Noel-Buxton is himself an alcoholic in recovery. Reflecting on his own experience, he addresses the processes of change that can bring about recovery and points to a new quality of life in recovery. Martin discusses the vital differences between alcohol abuse and alcoholism, Alcoholics Anonymous and its notion of spirituality, and considers the effectiveness of talk therapies and other approaches to recovery. The book illustrates how the individual alcoholic recovers from alcoholism and explores the experience of those who become alcoholic and who then find recovery. It covers treatment, relapse and what works in bringing about and supporting recovery. The author explains that recovery is far more than just stopping drinking and he describes the complex processes of living life beyond uncontrollable alcohol dependency. The book will prove invaluable reading for individuals faced with confronting alcohol problems, their friends and relations, their work colleagues, health care professionals and those responsible for service provision and policy development. It will be helpful to those interested in addiction issues and in alcoholism in particular.

Barbara Ann Brennan continues her ground-breaking exploration of the human energy field, or aura—the source of our experience of health or illness. Drawing on many new developments in her teaching and practice, she shows how we can be empowered as both patients and healers to understand and work with our most fundamental healing power: the light that emerges from the very center of our humanity. In a unique approach that encourages a cooperative effort among healer, patient, and other health-care providers, Light Emerging explains what the healer perceives visually, audibly, and kinesthetically and how each of us can participate in every stage of the healing process. Presenting a fascinating range of research, from a paradigm of healing based on the science of holography to insights into the "hara level" and the "core star," Light Emerging is at the leading edge of healing practice in our time.

The Handbook of Religion and Health has become the seminal research text on religion, spirituality, and health, outlining a rational argument for the connection between religion and health. The Second Edition completely revises and updates the first edition. Its authors are physicians: a psychiatrist and geriatrician, a primary care physician, and a professor of nursing and specialist in mental health nursing. The Second Edition surveys the historical connections between religion and health and grapples with the distinction between the terms ''religion'' and ''spirituality'' in research and clinical practice. It reviews research on religion and mental health, as well as extensive research literature on the mind-body relationship, and develops a model to explain how religious involvement may impact physical health through the mind-body mechanisms. It also explores the direct relationships between religion and physical health, covering such topics as immune and endocrine function, heart disease, hypertension and stroke, neurological disorders, cancer, and infectious diseases; and examines the consequences of illness including chronic pain, disability, and quality of life. Finally, the Handbook reviews research methods and addresses applications to clinical practice. Theological perspectives are interwoven throughout the chapters. The Handbook is the most insightful and authoritative resource available to anyone who wants to understand the relationship between religion and health.

A set of propositions and an accompanying theoretical framework that explains the cause-effect linkages between intrastate and interstate power realization that are characterized by militarization are developed. This model establishes the foundation for an explanation of how such power is used to deal with the state's Janus-faced security dilemma. To this end, the model provides the tools needed for such an inquiry from a conceptual and typological standpoint. The goal is to explain how the internal aspect of state power shapes the external one. It was determined that Israel and the primary Arab confrontation states provide important test cases based on the intense interplay prevalent between militarization processes and state power.
