View: 3640This book looks at mediaeval English drama using the theoretical frameworks of historical sociopragmatics and dialogue analysis. It focuses on the collection of cycle plays known as the N.Town Plays, preserved in a manuscript from the fifteenth century. The book examines various linguistic markers that are important for the expression of social relations and pragmatic stance: pronouns and terms of address, modal markers, performatives, and sequential structures such as question-answer, imperative-compliance, etc. These elements are examined separately and then brought together to arrive at a more integrated analysis of dramatic dialogue and of the dynamics of interaction it portrays. A separate chapter is devoted to tracing the same mechanisms on a different communication level, i.e. in 'dialogue' with the audience, which is particularly relevant to the instructional purposes of the plays. The book will be useful to students and scholars of pragmatics, historical linguistics, dialogue studies and drama studies.

A Handbook of Tests and Measures
Author: Carole A. Beere
Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
View: 3461Beere has written another useful reference book. This latest is actually a continuation of "Gender Roles: A Handbook of Tests and Measures" (Greenwood Press, 1990). . . . This book] identifies 197 tests on many different topics including sexuality, pregnancy and childbirth, contraception and abortion, and eating disorders. . . . Students and faculty will find Sex and Gender Issues worthwhile and easy to use. Highly recommended for four-year college and university libraries. "Choice" This handbook is a companion volume to Beere's "Gender Roles: A Handbook of Tests and Measures," which describes 211 measures pertaining to gender roles and attitudes toward gender-related issues. "Sex and Gender Issues" extends the "Gender Roles'" coverage, describing 197 scales usable in research and applied settings. The measures relate to the following topics: heterosocial relations, sexuality, contraception and abortion, pregnancy and childbirth, somatic issues, homosexuality, rape and sexual coercion, family violence, body image and appearance, eating disorders, and other scales. In preparing these handbooks, Beere thoroughly searched the literature in psychology, sociology, education, and related disciplines and identified 1,450 measures. For this handbook, she selected 197 measures that are relevant, have evidence of reliability or validity, and were used in more than one published article or ERIC document. If a scale did not satisfy these criteria, but its development is the focus of an article or ERIC document, it is included. Unusual scales and those pertaining to a topic that would otherwise receive inadequate coverage are included as well. The scale descriptions follow a standard format that includes information such as title, author or authors listed in the earliest publication mentioning the scale, earliest date that the scale was mentioned in a publication, variable measured, type of instrument, description, sample items, previous subjects and appropriate subjects, information regarding reliability and validity, and a listing of published studies that used the measure. "Sex and Gender Issues" is the most up-to-date compendium of these tests and measures and will be welcomed by social science researchers, students, and teachers. It is a necessary addition to university libraries, research centers, and to the private collection of researchers in relevant areas.
Echoes Through a Decade
Author: Scott L. Bills
Publisher: Kent State University Press
View: 2276The reverberations of the rifle shots that killed four students on May 4, 1970 echoed across the nation and beyond. Nowhere, perhaps, did they echo with more persistence and poignancy than at the place where it happened, the Kent State University campus. For more than ten years the university's name has been a symbol of the Sixties protest movements as the causes of the event were debated, lawsuits embroiled participants and victims, and concerned people struggled for appropriate means for remembrance and commemoration--each issue leading to further, if less violent, arguments, demonstrations and confrontations. The May 4 episode has been recounted many times, in many ways. The events of the succeeding years, particularly as they affected the community in which they happened, are less well documented. As event and as symbol, Kent State/May 4 means many things to many people. This unique collection of essays and personal interviews presents a broad spectrum of these viewpoints in recounting the events of May 4 and those of the aftermath years. The result is a composite history from the perspectives of many of those who lived it, a reflection of the differing ideological stances and life experiences characteristic of that tumultuous era in American history.

View: 6009In his eye-opening book Why?, world-renowned social scientist Charles Tilly exposed some startling truths about the excuses people make and the reasons they give. Now he's back with further explorations into the complexities of human relationships, this time examining what's really going on when we assign credit or cast blame. Everybody does it, but few understand the hidden motivations behind it. With his customary wit and dazzling insight, Tilly takes a lively and thought-provoking look at the ways people fault and applaud each other and themselves. The stories he gathers in Credit and Blame range from the everyday to the altogether unexpected, from the revealingly personal to the insightfully humorous--whether it's the gushing acceptance speech of an Academy Award winner or testimony before a congressional panel, accusations hurled in a lover's quarrel or those traded by nations in a post-9/11 crisis, or a job promotion or the Nobel Prize. Drawing examples from literature, history, pop culture, and much more, Tilly argues that people seek not only understanding through credit and blame, but also justice. The punishment must fit the crime, accomplishments should be rewarded, and the guilty parties must always get their just deserts. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, Credit and Blame is a book that revolutionizes our understanding of the compliments we pay and the accusations we make.

View: 2441Hey Let's Blame Everybody Logic is a wonderful thing, especially when it comes to assigning blame to a situation. This book tries to have some fun with those who are quick to find easy scapegoats - through supposedly logical thinking - to many of the world's problems. In the end, the author calls for the reader to think before they speak. A novel concept To actually step back and try to look at things from a distance with an open mind instead of speaking right away and running the risk of looking like a fool is a very difficult thing to do in today's squeaky wheel gets the grease society. The question is why? Why do people today react so quickly and so negatively, or so positively with such little information? Jack Rothamel is a veteran of the business world with over 25 years of experience in two distinctly different business disciplines. First as a mortgage lender trying to find borrowers and also as a stockbroker/financial advisor trying to find investors. His insight into the front lines of these businesses gives him great insight into what the public is thinking. It also allows him to know what will turn the public on or off almost immediately.I was inspired to write this book as a replacement for very expensive therapy. Writing allowed me to feel better about my life. Besides, my kids were tired of hearing me talk until I was blue in the face. He lives in Iowa and still works in the financial services industry.
