Loneliness And Its Opposite from the Author: Don Kulick. Few people these days would oppose making the public realm of space, social services and jobs accessible to women and men with disabilities. But what about access to the private realm of desire and sexuality? How can one also facilitate access to that, in ways that respect the integrity of disabled adults, and also of those people who work with and care for them? Loneliness and Its Opposite documents how two countries generally imagined to be progressive engage with these questions in very different ways. Denmark and Sweden are both liberal welfare states, but they diverge dramatically when it comes to sexuality and disability. In Denmark, the erotic lives of people with disabilities are acknowledged and facilitated. In Sweden, they are denied and blocked. Why do these differences exist, and how do both facilitation and hindrance play out in practice? Loneliness and Its Opposite charts complex boundaries between private and public, love and sex, work and intimacy, and affection and abuse. It shows how providing disabled adults with access to sexual lives is not just crucial for a life with dignity. It is an issue of fundamental social justice with far reaching consequences for everyone.

from the Author: Susan Cain. Кілька століть нам нав’язували ідеальний образ людини — комунікабельної, харизматичної, енергійної, — мовляв, саме ці риси — запорука успіху. Тому й не дивно, що більшість переступила через себе, намагаючись відповідати цьому взірцеві. Сьюзен Кейн вважає, що час скинути маски, і на численних прикладах з політики, бізнесу, освіти, громадського та культурного життя розповідає, у чому криється потенціал тихих людей. Кейн сама інтроверт, тому щиро ділиться порадами, як здобути успіх на роботі і в особистому житті, при цьому залишаючись самим собою.

The Pimping Of Prostitution from the Author: Julie Bindel. This book examines one of the most contested issues facing feminists, human rights activists and governments around the globe – the international sex trade. For decades, the liberal left has been conflicted as to whether pro-prostitution activists or abolitionists hold the correct view, and debates are ongoing as to who holds the key to the solutions facing the women and girls involved. Over the course of two years, Bindel conducted 250 interviews in almost 40 countries, cities and states, traveling around Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and East and South Africa. Visiting legal brothels all around the world, Bindel got to know pimps, pornographers, survivors of the sex trade, and the women being sold by men classed as ‘business entrepreneurs’. Whilst meeting feminist abolitionists, pro-prostitution campaigners, police and government officials, and the men who drive the demand, Bindel uncovered the lies, mythology and criminal activity that shroud this global trade, and suggests here a way forward for the women seeking to abolish the oldest oppression. Informed by the lived human experience of those interviewed, this book will be of great interest to feminists, students, criminal justice advocates, criminologists and human rights activists.

Fields In Motion from the Author: Dena Davida. Fields in Motion: Ethnography in the Worlds of Dance examines the deeper meanings and resonances of artistic dance in contemporary culture. The book comprises four sections: methods and methodologies, autoethnography, pedagogies and creative processes, and choreographies as cultural and spiritual representations. The contributors bring an insiders insight to their accounts of the nature and function of these artistic practices, giving voice to dancers, dance teachers, creators, programmers, spectators, students, and scholars. International and intergenerational, this collection of groundbreaking scholarly research points to a new direction for both dance studies and dance anthropology. Traditionally the exclusive domain of aesthetic philosophers, the art of dance is here reframed as cultural practice, and its significance is revealed through a chorus of voices from practitioners and insider ethnographers.

Narratives Of Loneliness from the Author: Olivia Sagan. Rising life expectancies and declining social capital in the developed world mean that an increasing number of people are likely to experience some form of loneliness in their lifetimes than ever before. Narratives of Loneliness tackles some of the most pressing issues related to loneliness, showing that whilst recent policies on social integration, community building and volunteering may go some way to giving an illusion of not being alone, ultimately, they offer a rhetoric of togetherness that may be more seductive than ameliorative, as the condition and experience of loneliness is far more complex than commonly perceived. Containing thought-provoking contributions from researchers and commentators in several countries, this important work challenges us to rethink some of the burning issues of our day with specific reference to the causes and consequences of loneliness. Topics include the loneliness and mental health of military personnel, loneliness and social media, loneliness and sexuality, urban loneliness, and the experiences of transnational movement and adopted children. This book therefore makes an overdue multidisciplinary contribution to the emerging debate about how best to deal with loneliness in a world that combines greater and faster connectedness on the one hand with more intensely experienced isolation on the other. Since Émile Durkheim first claimed that the structure of society could have a strong bearing on psychological health in the 1890s, researchers in a range of disciplines have explored the probable impact of social context on mental health and wellbeing. Interdisciplinary in approach, Narratives of Loneliness will therefore be of great interest to academics, postgraduate students and researchers in social sciences, the arts, psychology and psychiatry.

Feeling Lonesome The Philosophy And Psychology Of Loneliness from the Author: Ben Lazare Mijuskovic. This book presents an intricate, interdisciplinary evaluation of loneliness that examines the relation of consciousness to loneliness.

from the Author: Герберт Уелс. Неймовірні подорожі до майбутнього! Що чекає на людство через сотні тисяч років? Виявляється, воно розділиться на дві раси — елоїв та морлоків, почне жахатися вогню та втратить усі знання, здобуті за багатолітню історію...

Адже захопливі пригоди таять у собі безліч небезпек, про які й гадки не має сучасна людина, і дуже важко перемогти в сутичці з невідомим. Роман «Машина часу» та фантастичні оповідання «У безодні», «Чарівна крамниця», «Новітній прискорювач» та «Острів Епіорніса» відкриють перед вами загадкові світи... Адаптоване видання для дітей 9-13 років.
