A Short History of Ireland
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Updated new edition of this classic account of the Irish national struggle and its advance into the modern world. From the earliest times in Irish history to the peace process, the author casts light on the people and events which have contributed to present-day Irish society, both North and South. This third edition of John O´Beirne Ranelagh´s classic history of Ireland incorporates contemporary political and economic events as well as the latest archaeological and DNA discoveries. Comprehensively revised and updated throughout, it considers Irish history from the earliest times through the Celts, Cromwell, plantations, famine, Independence, the Omagh bomb, peace initiatives, and financial collapse. It profiles the key players in Irish history from Diarmuid MacMurrough to Gerry Adams and casts new light on the events, North and South, that have shaped Ireland today. Ireland´s place in the modern world and its relationship with Britain, the USA and Europe is also examined with a fresh and original eye. Worldwide interest in Ireland continues to increase, but whereas it once focused on violence in Northern Ireland, the tumultuous financial events in the South have opened fresh debates and drawn fresh interest. This is a new history for a new era.

Environmental Modeling with Stakeholders - Theo...
154,69 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume brings together, in a central text, chapters written by leading scholars working at the intersection of modeling, the natural and social sciences, and public participation. This book presents the current state of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of engaging stakeholders in environmental modeling for decision-making, and includes basic theoretical considerations, an overview of methods and tools available, and case study examples of these principles and methods in practice. Although there has been a significant increase in research and development regarding participatory modeling, a unifying text that provides an overview of the different methodologies available to scholars and a systematic review of case study applications has been largely unavailable. This edited volume seeks to address a gap in the literature and provide a primer that addresses the growing demand to adopt and apply a range of modeling methods that includes the public in environmental assessment and management. The book is divided into two main sections. The first part of the book covers basic considerations for including stakeholders in the modeling process and its intersection with the theory and practice of public participation in environmental decision-making. The second part of the book is devoted to specific applications and products of the various methods available through case study examination. This second part of the book also provides insight from several international experts currently working in the field about their approaches, types of interactions with stakeholders, models produced, and the challenges they perceived based on their practical experiences. Steven Gray is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University. His research focuses on the theory and practice of participatory modeling and developing decision-support software to help communities, resource managers, and other decision-makers to understand the social impacts of environmental change through modeling. Michael Paolisso is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Maryland whose research seeks to demonstrate how cultural models of the environment have a direct bearing on the use and management of natural resources, and how cognitive-cultural approaches and collaborative learning improve scientist and public understanding, dialogue, and collaboration in addressing environmental issues. Rebecca Jordan is a Professor in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University. Trained as a behavioral ecologist her scholarly work focusses on public participation in scientific research and the contribution of learning to the sustainability of coupled social-ecological systems. Stefan Gray currently works as an adviser to the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment in Wellington, New Zealand. At the time of the production of this book, Stefan held a Research Fellowship funded by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency, supporting climate change adaptation at central and local government levels in Ireland. His research in Europe focused on issues related to expanding decision-making in environmental management to incorporate complex adaptive systems theory.

The Palgrave Handbook of Age Diversity and Work
202,29 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This Handbook incorporates a variety of disciplines and approaches in order to provide a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the issues that result from increasing age diversity at work. Despite interest in this area exploding over the past few years amongst academics, practitioners and policy makers, the analysis of age diversity has remained primarily within disciplinary silos such as Psychology or Sociology with a focus on ageing or generational differences, rather than a combination of approaches to understanding age diversity. Unique in its coverage of multiple perspectives, it considers not only generational and ageing perspectives to age diversity, but also highlights the importance of context in driving both the impact and response to this issue. The Palgrave Handbook of Age Diversity and Work includes contributions from leading scholars in age and generational diversity from across the world, discussing cutting-edge research findings about the nature and impact of age diversity and presenting approaches to managing this phenomenon. Emma Parry is a Professor of Human Resource Management at Cranfield School of Management, UK. Emma leads several international research projects including Cranet, an international network of scholars examining the impact of national context on human resources policies and practices, and 5C a global academic collaboration looking at the impact of national culture and age on careers. Emma is an Honorary Fellow for the Institute of Employment Studies and an Academic Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Jean McCarthy is a Lecturer in Human Resource Management & Organisational Behaviour at the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, Ireland. She is also a Global Research Associate with the Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College and co-director of the Age in the Workplace Research Network (AWR-net), an international network of researchers seeking to address issues associated with age, generations and diversity at work, and has served as an advisor on ageing and ageism policy direction.
