Users of previous editions will notice that the book has been restructured into five new parts to provide a better conceptual flow. Other new features include: A new chapter on talent management and its relationship to global leadership processes. Updates to the chapter on global leadership development, including material on international service learning approaches and other "best practice" examples. Significant updates to the chapters on responsible global leadership and leading global teams, accounting for recent advances in both disciplines. This edition will prove a useful guide for graduate students of global leadership, international business, and general leadership classes as well as scholars and managers seeking a thorough understanding of the field today.

Used by hundreds of thousands of students since its first edition, INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS, Fourteenth Edition, continues to blend the best of its proven, error-free coverage with new innovations. Written for the higher end of the traditional introductory statistics market, the book takes advantage of modern technology--including computational software and interactive visual tools--to facilitate statistical reasoning as well as the interpretation of statistical results. In addition to showing how to apply statistical procedures, the authors explain how to describe real sets of data meaningfully, what the statistical tests mean in terms of their practical applications, how to evaluate the validity of the assumptions behind statistical tests, and what to do when statistical assumptions have been violated. The new edition retains the statistical integrity, examples, exercises, and exposition that have made this text a market leader--and builds upon this tradition of excellence with new technology integration.

Syndemic Suffering

Social Distress, Depression, and Diabetes Among Mexican Immigrant Wome
Author: Emily Mendenhall
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1315419440
Category: Social Science
Page: 145
View: 3644
In a major contribution to the study of diabetes, this book is the first to analyze the disease through a syndemic framework. An innovative, mixed-methods study, Emily Mendenhall shows how adverse social conditions, such as poverty and oppressive relationships, disproportionately stress certain populations and expose them to disease clusters. She goes beyond epidemiological research that has linked diabetes and depression, revealing how broad structural inequalities play out in the life histories of individuals, families, and communities, and lead to higher rates of mortality and morbidity. This intimate portrait of syndemic suffering is a model study of chronic disease disparity among the poor in high income countries and will be widely read in public health, medical anthropology, and related fields.

Beyond the Checklist

What Else Health Care Can Learn from Aviation Teamwork and Safety

The U.S. healthcare system is now spending many millions of dollars to improve "patient safety" and "inter-professional practice." Nevertheless, an estimated 100,000 patients still succumb to preventable medical errors or infections every year. How can health care providers reduce the terrible financial and human toll of medical errors and injuries that harm rather than heal? Beyond the Checklist argues that lives could be saved and patient care enhanced by adapting the relevant lessons of aviation safety and teamwork. In response to a series of human-error caused crashes, the airline industry developed the system of job training and information sharing known as Crew Resource Management (CRM). Under the new industry-wide system of CRM, pilots, flight attendants, and ground crews now communicate and cooperate in ways that have greatly reduced the hazards of commercial air travel. The coauthors of this book sought out the aviation professionals who made this transformation possible. Beyond the Checklist gives us an inside look at CRM training and shows how airline staff interaction that once suffered from the same dysfunction that too often undermines real teamwork in health care today has dramatically improved. Drawing on the experience of doctors, nurses, medical educators, and administrators, this book demonstrates how CRM can be adapted, more widely and effectively, to health care delivery. The authors provide case studies of three institutions that have successfully incorporated CRM-like principles into the fabric of their clinical culture by embracing practices that promote common patient safety knowledge and skills.They infuse this study with their own diverse experience and collaborative spirit: Patrick Mendenhall is a commercial airline pilot who teaches CRM; Suzanne Gordon is a nationally known health care journalist, training consultant, and speaker on issues related to nursing; and Bonnie Blair O'Connor is an ethnographer and medical educator who has spent more than two decades observing medical training and teamwork from the inside.

Co-dependency has finally become recognized in the late 1980s as a legitimate and a key issue in the chemical dependency field. Most of the literature available on the topic is addressed to the consumer--the co-dependent individual. In Co-dependency, leading therapists share some remarkable insights into the characteristics of the alcoholic home, co-dependents’patterns of responding to the alcoholic, and the particular problems that family members experience as a result of the environment, including fear, shame and guilt, anger, denial, and confusion. Clinical case material is used to illustrate the value of helping co-dependents through education, peer support, outpatient treatment and psychotherapy. Creative solutions for working with lesbian and gay men and children of alcoholics are also featured.

A man of strong evangelical faith, Edwin Mendenhall surrendered to a religious calling and enthusiastically told his bishop, “I am your missionary to Wayne County!” In 1844, he uprooted his family and embarked on a journey to the remote northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, an area he believed was a “spiritual fi eld ready for harvest.” Almost forgotten, Mendenhall’s story is about a man’s singular mission to share a timeless message of hope. For that cause, he would devote his life, saying, “How thankful I feel that I have preached full and free salvation . . . in Christ Jesus.”

A Queer Film Classic on Canadian director Patricia Rozema's I've Heard the Mermaids Singing, her quirky and hopeful first feature film which made its premiere at Cannes and won its Prix de la jeunesse. Presented as a "videotaped confession," it tells the story of Polly Vandersma, an unpretentious and introverted young woman who takes photographs as a hobby and works as a personal assistant to an elegant and sophisticated, but unsatisfied, art gallery director, Gabrielle St. Peres, whom she worships. This book presents a new close textual analysis of Mermaids that places this complex yet teachable film unquestionably within the global queer film canon while uncovering many of its complexities. The film has appeared on the Maclean's "Top 10 Films of the 20th Century" and Toronto International Film Festival's Best 10 Canadian Films of All Time. Julia Mendenhall, a longtime fan of the film, places it in the context of the director's life experiences and her filmic oeuvre, the production and reception history of the film within the mid to late 1980s and the 1990s era of "outing," and the development of queer theory.

'And He said to them, 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.'' Luke 10:18-19 (NKJV) John's world is filled with turmoil and doubt as the bubonic plague ravages his congregation. Can all these hideous deaths be God's will? If God is good, then why are bad things happening to good people? As John desperately searches through the sacred text, he discovers the epic battle between light and darkness. His quest uncovers secrets that could cause the defeat of the wicked spirit who fell like lightning from heaven. After Satan's fall, his goal was to conquer the earth. Thinking he has won, he brings disease, destruction, and death to God's people; but God has a plan. Margaret Mendenhall takes you behind the scenes in the classic story of the ages in an inspirational and eye-opening journey that exposes the lies and implications that endeavor to defame the character of God. Can the battle for mankind's freedom be won or is the price too high? 'Fall Like Lightning from Heaven was captivating as [we] read with fresh insight the greatest story ever told. Margaret unfolds what happened in the unseen world in an accurate yet dramatic way....In this book, you will find the answer to the question: 'If God is such a good God, why do all these bad things happen?''
