代理商:大苹果 MAMA’S CHICKENS
by MICHELLE WORTHINGTON (AUTHOR), NICKY JOHNSTON (ILLUSTRATOR)
页数:32    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-6-17
< /td>
英文概要: A sensitive, beautifully illustrated book that uses backyard chickens to give a closely observed child’s-eye view of early-onset dementia. Mama didn’t want chickens, but she grows to love them as her dementia symptoms increase. Her young children see that she doesn’t always act like her old self anymore this upsets both them and the chickens, but Mama always finds ways to show them just how much they are wanted and loved. Children will relate to the endearing personalities of the chickens, while the award-winning author draws on her own experience to create an entirely age-appropriate story about the impact of early-onset dementia. The result is a supportive, much-needed book about a reality that many families face. Dementia doesn’t only affect the elderly. Like the parent in the story, people with early-onset dementia may have memory loss, difficulty thinking, trouble recognising people or confusion, or begin acting unlike themselves. Michelle Worthington has had personal experience of all of these symptoms since her diagnosis with Progressive Nonfluent Aphasia (a form of dementia), and hopes her book will help children understand what dementia can look like when their care-giver suffers from it. Her wish is that the book will initiate open and honest communication and help parents all around the world recognise the symptoms while providing love and support for their children.

代理商:大苹果 PEAR OF HOPE
by WENDA SHURETY (AUTHOR), DEB HUDSON (ILLUSTRATOR)
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:32    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-6-17
< /td>
英文概要: Anna loves the old pear tree that lives at the bottom of the garden. When she becomes seriously ill, her relationship with the tree provides comfort and peace on her journey, particularly when she plants a seed from one of the tree’s pears.
Pear of Hope is the story of a little girl with cancer and her tale of recovery. This is intertwined with the growth of a pear tree, which symbolises the enigmatic concept of hope. Told through sensitive words and gentle, beautiful illustrations, the story will comfort and inspire any children who are struggling to feel positive, whatever journey they may be on.
Author Wenda Shurety wrote Pear of Hope because, as someone living with Multiple Sclerosis, hope has been instrumental in her healing process. The story is a gentle introduction to building a more positive outlook in the face of struggle. As well as adults and children suffering from illness, it will also appeal to educators discussing the topics of hope and symbolism, and to medical staff or counsellors who have to discuss hope in difficult situations.
The beautiful story of Pear of Hope and its brave, adventurous and hopeful main character, Anna, will be a crucial step towards children and their carers embracing hope in their lives. With its vibrant images, it is a reminder of the beauty of the world around us and of the fact that, like Anna, with hope you can face any battle!

代理商:大苹果 THE DIPLOMATIC STRUGGLE OVER BESSARABIA
by VALERIU FLORIN DOBRINESCU
页数:240    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-6-4
< /td>
英文概要: Convention on the definition of aggression signed on 3 July 1933, established the borders of modern Romania. As in the case of its neighbors, Czechoslovakia and Poland, revisionist currents in Europe during the interwar period threatened Romania’ s newly established frontiers, one of the most serious threats being posed by the Soviet Union which sought to regain possession of Bessarabia, a Romanian territory that had been occupied by Russia from 1812-1918. This book is a comprehensive account of the efforts of Romanian diplomacy during the interwar period to protect Bessarabia from the Soviet threat and the diplomatic and military events that led to the forcible occupation of the Romanian territories of Bessarabia and Northern Bucovina by the Soviet Union in the summer of 1940. The author not only provides an important account of Romanian diplomacy during this period, but also sheds light on the foreign policies of the Western powers, the Soviet Union, and Nazi Germany in this area of Europe. It is a key work on Romanian foreign policy during the interwar period and a necessary addition to any research library.

代理商:大苹果 WOMEN’S WORK IN PUBLIC RELATIONS
by ELIZABETH BRIDGEN (EDITOR), SARAH WILLIAMS (EDITOR)
页数:288    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-11
< /td>
英文概要: The experience of women’s everyday lives in public relations roles across the world is under-recorded and under-explored. While the body of knowledge which explores public relations and corporate communications is growing, research that seeks to understand the working lives of women in promotional cultures is still limited. This collection prioritises women’s experiences and histories to understand more about public relations practices and the daily lives of women who carry out this work.

Demonstrating the breadth and range of feminist writing on women’s work, chapters step away from management-based accounts of public relations towards a space where marginalised voices and the lived experiences of women at all stages in their career are foregrounded. Discussing working lives in Brazil, Spain, Bosnia, Turkey, the UK and beyond, authors consider in rich detail female roles, experiences and paradoxes.

Reconceptualising human experience through a holistic feminist approach, Women’s Work in Public Relations takes us behind the scenes to connect with women navigating the problems and contradictions of everyday working life.

代理商:大苹果 COMPLIANCE AND FINANCIAL CRIME RISK IN BANKS: A PRACTITIONERS GUIDE
by SOPHIA BECKETT VELEZ PH.D.
页数:176    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: US and global banking regulators have enforced compliance laws to minimise money laundering, terrorist funding, human trafficking, fraudulent banking activities, and bad mortgage loans that expose banks to significant risks and losses. However, many banks have complained of over-regulation. ‘Compliance and Financial Crime Risk in Banks: A Practitioners Guide’ investigates anti-money laundering standards, counter-terrorist financing measures that cover the Bank Secrecy Act laws, and control activities designed to mitigate breaches, such as ‘prevent, detect, and monitor’.

A focus group of ten senior banking finance experts was convened to build consensus on compliance practices that senior bank managers can implement to be effective in reducing losses in banks/bank holding companies. The result is the following consensus:

a) Maintenance of effective and independent compliance, consistent with the organisational objectives

b) Clear definition of data sources for compliance analytics

c) Compliance monitoring

d) Reporting activities to upper management

e) Top leadership must champion their code of ethics

f) Understanding the regulatory compliance activities that are effective

Author Sophia Beckett Velez offers an original contribution to the field of banking that Undergraduates, Master’s, Ph.D. students, academics, and researchers can use to gain a deeper understanding of compliance, and AML risks in banks, and the use of effective management practices.

代理商:大苹果 SENSORY PENALITIES: EXPLORING THE SENSES IN SPACES OF PUNISHMENT AND SOCIAL CONTROL
by KATE HERRITY (EDITOR), BETHANY E. SCHMIDT (EDITOR), JASON WARR (EDITOR)
页数:296    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: Sensory Penalities reflects an explosion in explorations of the sensory and disrupts conventional expectations of both form and focus by expanding anthropological practices and craft into the field of criminology and criminological research.

In providing accounts of physical/sensorial experiences within sites of surveillance and control, the authors in this edited collection bring elements of research experiences (often absent from existing work) to the fore; the impressions and sensual experiences which remain forever in field notes. In so doing they carve out spaces to consider these places and the ways in which they are theorised anew.

The book aims to explore what sensory aspects of experience mean to those engaged in such research, and how they can shape our criminological thinking. What are the sensory textures of these experiences? What do they tell us? How do we communicate them? Finally, what does consideration of these elements tell us about penality?

This timely volume challenges and remakes assumptions about what criminology is and should be; more accurately reflecting the post-disciplinary nature of the field.

作者介绍: Kate Herrity is a Junior Research Fellow at Kings College, Cambridge, interested in working at the boundaries and meeting places between fields and disciplines, particularly those relating to sensory experience.

代理商:大苹果 NEW APPROACHES TO FLEXIBLE WORKING
by FONS TROMPENAARS (AUTHOR), PETER WOOLLIAMS (AUTHOR)
页数:120    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: Whilst Covid-19 suddenly forced many workers (who could) to work from home which prompted many rapidly produced anecdotal publications about the effects, there has been little or no organised evidence-driven assembled body of knowledge leading to a conceptual framework to inform the evolving future of flexible working. Dictums from management pleading employees to return to the office are highly subjective. There remains a conspicuous absence of a rigorous understanding for both employers and employees to provide a framework for identifying best practice and how the opportunities can be best synergised.

The authors’ longitudinal research on traditional frameworks and practices on flexible working they had begun long before Covid-19 serious shortcomings in job design and ways of working how organisations utilise their people.

New Approaches to Flexible Working presents a new framework that explores the perspectives of employers and employees in the changing world of work. The authors demonstrate that reconciling the competing demands of employers and employees through flexible working can elicit ways of working that can secure optimum contributions from employees whilst enriching the organisation with increasing job satisfaction of employees’ changing expectations.

Each volume in this series will explore failing established models and propose new conceptual frameworks with practical approaches. International case studies enrich the arguments and findings.

代理商:大苹果 THE SOCIAL LIFE OF BUSYNESS
by CLARE HOLDSWORTH
页数:200    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: Clare Holdsworth develops an account of everyday busyness by identifying busyness with a relational interpretation of time. She analyses a variety of secondary data sources – one-day diaries, self-help books on busyness and time management, accounts of a writing day and interviews about family work and time – and combines these analyses with personal observations. By revealing busyness as the point at which we negotiate our own responsibilities and those of other people, and by showcasing how experiences of busyness are very varied, Holdsworth concludes that the tactics we use to deal with excessive busyness and the habits we develop in relation to it need to recognise the relational status of busyness. Rather than assuming that busyness is an issue that should be resolved by helping individuals manage their time better, she argues that busyness should be thought of as a collective challenge.

This book encourages us to understand that time-management solutions need to focus on the spatial and temporal distributions of responsibilities and how people manage these responsibilities. It represents a timely call for collective responses to busyness in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has intensified the unequal distribution of responsibilities.

代理商:大苹果 NEW APPROACHES TO RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION
by FONS TROMPENAARS (AUTHOR), PETER WOOLLIAMS (AUTHOR)
页数:120    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: Current recruitment and selection practices are essentially a cloning process which seeks to match applicants with the current corporate culture of the hiring organisation. This ignores applicants with different points of view, differing value systems and career aspirations. Authors Fons Trompenaars and Peter Woolliams explore the idea that, while all organisations should develop and promote their core values, the application of them needs to be revisited.

New Approaches to Recruitment and Selection presents a new framework that compares current corporate cultures with the evolving value systems of current and potential employees. The authors believe that applicants should match the organization’s needs and explore how different categories of applicants can enrich the organisation whilst providing full engagement.

The authors’ longitudinal research on traditional frameworks and practices shows that while companies strive to be objective, they are rarely free of cultural bias. They identify serious shortcomings in how organisations utilise their people. While most organisations are implementing a wide range of policies and programmes to identify and eliminate pay inequalities, and improve their attractiveness to women and minorities, great change has not materialised.

Each volume in this series will explore failing established models and propose new conceptual frameworks with practical approaches. International case studies enrich the arguments and findings.

代理商:大苹果 DIGITAL PARENTING BURDENS IN CHINA: ONLINE HOMEWORK, PARENT CHATS AND PUNCH-IN CULTURE
by SUN SUN LIM (AUTHOR), YANG WANG (AUTHOR)
页数:108    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-5-9
< /td>
英文概要: As a world leader in technology, China’s adoption of trend-setting innovations has led to the encroachment of digital technologies into the home. Digital Parenting Burdens in China is the first English language book to explore the impact of digitalisation on family life in China, including the phenomenon of ‘punch-in culture’ and its implications for family wellbeing. In an era of heightened digital connectivity via parent-teacher and parent-parent chatgroups and homework apps, how are Chinese parents coping with the challenges of parental accountability, peer pressure and performative parenting?

Delving into 90 interviews from both before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, authors Sun Sun Lim and Yang Wang provide rich vignettes of family life in urban Chinese households in Beijing and Hangzhou to demonstrate how parents appropriate technology as they raise their children, steer them towards the social aspirations of academic achievement, and navigate the rocky terrains of children’s home-based learning during the pandemic lockdowns. Empirically grounded and theoretically informed, these vivid accounts serve as valuable insights into understanding how family life around is shifting in the face of digitalisation not only in China, but globally.

英文概要: The term financial inclusion describes an individual’s ability to obtain effective and inexpensive financial products and services that match their demands, whilst extending to include businesses access to finances to enable planning for long-term goals or unpredictable emergencies. This allows micro, small, and medium-sized businesses to access financial products on a sustainable basis for a reasonable price. Financial Inclusion Across Asia provides thought-provoking studies centred around Asia and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Some of the many topics discussed in this collection include financial inclusion in under-served markets, financial inclusion products and services, financial inclusion for sustainable and responsible business, micro, small, and medium-sized business practices. The chapter authors consider Artificial Intelligence, Block Chain and Robotics in financial inclusion for businesses, and financial inclusion in the Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0.

This collection of studies is useful for social scientists, students, academicians, academic institutions, policymakers, and other related stakeholders. It is also appropriate for practitioners or financial sector stakeholders to discover potential business opportunities of financial inclusion products and services, allowing them to strategically incorporate the SDGs.
