The American Supreme Court

Fifth Edition

Author: Robert G. McCloskey

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 0226556832

Category: Law

Page: 368

View: 7301

Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, Robert McCloskey’s classic work on the Supreme Court’s role in constructing the U.S. Constitution has introduced generations of students to the workings of our nation’s highest court. For this new fifth edition, Sanford Levinson extends McCloskey’s magisterial treatment to address the Court’s most recent decisions. As in prior editions, McCloskey’s original text remains unchanged. In his historical interpretation, he argues that the strength of the Court has always been its sensitivity to the changing political scene, as well as its reluctance to stray too far from the main currents of public sentiments. In two revised chapters, Levinson shows how McCloskey’s approach continues to illuminate developments since 2005, including the Court’s decisions in cases arising out of the War on Terror, which range from issues of civil liberty to tests of executive power. He also discusses the Court’s skepticism regarding campaign finance regulation; its affirmation of the right to bear arms; and the increasingly important nomination and confirmation process of Supreme Court justices, including that of the first Hispanic justice, Sonia Sotomayor. The best and most concise account of the Supreme Court and its place in American politics, McCloskey's wonderfully readable book is an essential guide to the past, present, and future prospects of this institution.

Auf der Suche nach dem perfekten Umschlag - ein Buch über das Entstehen von Büchern und Gefühlen Jhumpa Lahiris sehr persönlicher Text ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Buch. Er erzählt davon, welche Gefühle das Aussehen von Büchern erzeugen kann - bei Autoren wie bei Lesern. Als Kind beneidete die in Amerika aufgewachsene indische Autorin ihre Cousins, weil sie eine Schuluniform hatten. Sie hingegen wurde von ihrer Mutter in traditionellen indischen Kleidern in die Schule geschickt und dafür gehänselt. Später kam ein weiterer Teil ihres Ichs hinzu, der eingekleidet werden wollte – ihre Bücher. Und die Kleider der Bücher können glücklich oder traurig stimmen - wie die Kleider, die man selbst trägt.

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Communication Research Methods

Page: 2064

View: 2363

Communication research is evolving and changing in a world of online journals, open-access, and new ways of obtaining data and conducting experiments via the Internet. Although there are generic encyclopedias describing basic social science research methodologies in general, until now there has been no comprehensive A-to-Z reference work exploring methods specific to communication and media studies. Our entries, authored by key figures in the field, focus on special considerations when applied specifically to communication research, accompanied by engaging examples from the literature of communication, journalism, and media studies. Entries cover every step of the research process, from the creative development of research topics and questions to literature reviews, selection of best methods (whether quantitative, qualitative, or mixed) for analyzing research results and publishing research findings, whether in traditional media or via new media outlets. In addition to expected entries covering the basics of theories and methods traditionally used in communication research, other entries discuss important trends influencing the future of that research, including contemporary practical issues students will face in communication professions, the influences of globalization on research, use of new recording technologies in fieldwork, and the challenges and opportunities related to studying online multi-media environments. Email, texting, cellphone video, and blogging are shown not only as topics of research but also as means of collecting and analyzing data. Still other entries delve into considerations of accountability, copyright, confidentiality, data ownership and security, privacy, and other aspects of conducting an ethical research program. Features: 652 signed entries are contained in an authoritative work spanning four volumes available in choice of electronic or print formats. Although organized A-to-Z, front matter includes a Reader’s Guide grouping entries thematically to help students interested in a specific aspect of communication research to more easily locate directly related entries. Back matter includes a Chronology of the development of the field of communication research; a Resource Guide to classic books, journals, and associations; a Glossary introducing the terminology of the field; and a detailed Index. Entries conclude with References/Further Readings and Cross-References to related entries to guide students further in their research journeys. The Index, Reader’s Guide themes, and Cross-References combine to provide robust search-and-browse in the e-version.

Dieses Buch enthält die weltberühmten Botschaften von Seth, einem „Energiepersönlichkeitskern, der nicht mehr in der physischen Form zentriert ist“. Jane Roberts erhielt diese Botschaften in Trance, ihr Ehemann Robert F. Butts hat sie aufnotiert. Seth spricht über Bewusstsein und Seele, die Existenz anderer Wirklichkeiten, den Gottesbegriff, über Gesundheit, Leben, Tod und das Leben nach dem Tod. Er schafft nicht nur Klarheit über diese Gegenstände, sondern zeigt auch, dass die Seele, jede Seele, über ungeahnte Fähigkeiten der „inneren Wahrnehmung“ verfügt. Auf Grund der inneren Stimme – durch intuitive Einsichten, paranormale Informationen oder Traumbotschaften – hat der Mensch Zugang zur universellen Welt höherer, multidimensionaler Realitäten.

«Mach dir keinen Kopf.» «Nun übertreib mal nicht.» «Denk einfach nicht mehr dran.» Diese Sätze kann die 16-jährige Maeve nicht mehr hören. Seit Jahren schon leidet sie an zwanghaften Ängsten, und sosehr sie sich wünscht, sie könnte einfach damit aufhören – es geht nicht. Ständig rechnet sie mindestens mit dem Schlimmsten! Da hilft es nicht gerade, dass ihre Mutter, Maeves Fixpunkt, für sechs Monate als Katastrophenhelferin nach Haiti geht. Maeve wird zu ihrem Vater geschickt, dessen Haus gerade im Chaos versinkt, weil 1. Maeves sechsjährige Zwillingsbrüder in ihrer Vorstellung ständig Gefahr laufen, vor ein Auto zu geraten oder entführt zu werden, 2. ihre Stiefmutter kurz vor der Entbindung steht und auf einer (gefährlichen) Hausgeburt beharrt und 3. ihr Vater seit einiger Zeit wieder dem Alkohol verfallen ist. Dann trifft Maeve auf Salix, eine auf ganzer Linie faszinierende Straßenmusikerin, die anscheinend vor überhaupt nichts Angst hat. Und das ist gut, denn dieser Sommer bringt mehr Katastrophen mit sich, als selbst Maeve sich hätte ausmalen können.
