Situated in education policy analysis, this book is at the cutting edge of major debates across the social sciences regarding the nature of science, qualitative/quantitative tensions, post-foundational possibilities, and the research/policy nexus. Located between the aftermath of poststructuralism and the new scientism afoot in neoliberal audit culture, the book posits an engaged social science that is accountable to complexity and the political value of not being so sure. Its insistence is to put deconstruction to work in the midst of messiness, contingency, and ambiguity. The book will be useful in courses on education, feminist policy analysis, and qualitative research across disciplines.
Stand-up Comedian Mark Britton erzählt auf persönliche, selbstironische und charmante Weise, wie Mann das Beste aus den besten Jahren machen kann - dieser langen Gerade zwischen Teenager und Rentner, Skateboard und Rollator, Play Station und Intensivstation, auf der mancher ins Straucheln gerät . Ein Buch, das Männern (und Frauen) im entsprechenden Alter einen Spiegel vorhält, in dem sie sich wiedererkennen - und hoffentlich wieder zur Normalität zurückfinden. »Apollo 50 - Wir haben ein Problem« Erwachsene Männer in der zweiten Pubertät Das ultimative Buch zur Midlife Crisis

And dire consequences await un the United States strikes first -- and fast. Scientist/pilot Wyn Gallagher and his East-bloc counterpart, Elena Pasvalys, are the key players in their governments' deadly game of strategy.
