Cities for Life Excerpt :

In cities around the world, planning and health experts are beginning to understand the role of social and environmental conditions that lead to trauma. By respecting the lived experience of those who were most impacted by harms, some cities have developed innovative solutions for urban trauma. In Cities for Life, public health expert Jason Corburn shares lessons from three of these cities: Richmond, California; Medellín, Colombia; and Nairobi, Kenya. Corburn draws from his work with citizens, activists, and decision-makers in these cities over a ten-year period, as individuals and communities worked to heal from trauma--including from gun violence, housing and food insecurity, poverty, and other harms. Cities for Life is about a new way forward with urban communities that rebuilds our social institutions, practices, and policies to be more focused on healing and health.

The Life of David Lack Excerpt :

Most people who have taken a biology course in the past 50 years are familiar with the work of David Lack, but few remember his name. Almost all general biology texts produced during that period have a figure showing the beak size differences among the finches of the Galapagos Islands from Lack's 1947 classic, Darwin's Finches. Lack's pioneering conclusions in Darwin's Finches mark the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. Tim Birkhead, in his acclaimed book, The Wisdom of Birds, calls Lack the 'hero of modern ornithology.' Who was this influential, yet relatively unknown man? The Life of David Lack, Father of Evolutionary Ecology provides an answer to that question based on Ted Anderson's personal interviews with colleagues, family members and former students as well as material in the extensive Lack Archive at Oxford University.

The Life of Margaret Alice Murray: A Woman’s Work in Archaeology, by Kathleen L. Sheppard, is a scientific biography of Margaret Alice Murray (1863-1963), exploring all the facets of “women’s work” in the history of archaeology and academia in the first half of the 20th century.

  • Pages : 450
  • ISBN 10 : 9781135632465

Family Stories and the Life Course Excerpt :

This edited book draws from work that focuses on the act of telling family stories, as well as their content and structure. The process of telling family stories is linked to central aspects of development, including language acquisition, affect regulation, and family interaction patterns. This book extends across traditional developmental psychology, personality theory, and family studies. Drawing broadly on the epigenetic framework for individual development articulated by Erik Erikson, as well as on conceptions of the family life cycle, the editors bring together contemporary examples of psychological research on family stories and their implications for development and change at different points in the life course. The book is divided into sections that focus on family stories at different points in the life cycle, from early childhood and the beginnings of narrative skill, through adolescence, young adulthood, midlife, and then mature adulthood and its intergenerational meaning. During each of these periods of the life cycle, research focusing on individual development within an Eriksonian framework of ego strengths and virtues is highlighted. The dynamic role of family stories is also featured here, with work exploring the links between family process, intergenerational attachment, and storytelling. Sociocultural theories that emphasize how such development is situated in the wider cultural context are also featured in several chapters. This broad lifespan developmental focus serves to integrate the exciting diversity of this work and foster further questions and research in the emerging field of family narrative. The book is intended primarily for researchers and advanced-level students in the fields of developmental and personality psychology, as well as those in family studies and in gerontology. It may also be of interest to those in the helping professions who are concerned with family therapy and family issues, and may--due to its content and illustrativ

The Life and Times of Charlie Chaplin Excerpt :

Charlie Chaplin, the universal comic icon, who with his lovable portrayal of a ‘tramp’made and still makes the world laugh, continues to live in popular memory. The Hitler’s toothbrush moustache, the bowler or derby hat, the coat a size or two too small, the baggy trousers, the floppy shoes and the cane made him the most unforgettable character. The mere mention of his name conjures a picture of him as the tramp. One of the most pivotal stars of the early silent era of Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin’s films made everyone laugh and cry at the same time. The world cinema is indebted to him for films like ‘The Kid’, ‘The Gold Rush’, ‘The Circus,’ ‘City Light’, ‘Modern Times’ and ‘The Great Dictator’. An enigma to the world, people have vast curiosity about his life and his body of work. This book is an attempt to unravel the various aspects of his life and his struggles. The happiness and the despair, the controversies and the acclaim are all revealed in this authentic biography of this great legend.
