Empire of Scrounge: Inside the Urban Underground of Dumpster Diving, Trash Picking, and Street Scavenging

"In Empire of Scrounge, Jeff Ferrell serves as an unassuming guide into the netherworld of our own garbage. Ferrell suggests that such urban prospecting is possibly far more than simple recyclingit is a form of politics that consciously opts out of a vapid consumer culture. It's a must read!" (Meda Chesney-Lind, co-editor of Invisible Punishment: The Collateral Consequences of Mass Imprisonment)

Encyclopedia of Journalism

Journalism permeates our lives and shapes our thoughts in ways we’ve long taken for granted. Whether we listen to National Public Radio in the morning, view the lead story on the Today show, read the morning newspaper headlines, stay up-to-the-minute with Internet news, browse grocery store tabloids, receive Time magazine in our mailbox, or watch the nightly news on television, journalism pervades our daily activities.

Holotropic Breathwork: A New Approach to Self-Exploration and Therapy

“Holotropic Breathwork elucidates a map expanded beyond the biographical and psychological realms of Western psychology into the perinatal and transpersonal realms identified by modern consciousness research and the study of ancient and tribal rituals and their cosmologies … The wonder of this book … is that this is not just a book, a map, a set of theories, or someone’s research results, but that it also describes a very concrete an...

MAD About Trump: A Brilliant Look at Our Brainless President

MAD About Trump is quite funny if you're not a Trump follower. They should have gone deeper into some specific criticisms, such as Trump's legal problems, his attack on the environment, and so on, but there are several pieces in here that are especially witty. I plan to hang the fake diploma from the fake Trump University on my wall. Maybe one fourth of the book I found rather lame. But overall it was funny and I'm glad I bought it.

The usage-based model used here proposes that each particular sense of a verb constitutes a conventionalized mini-construction, which is crucial information for the licensing of arguments. In con...

"Internet rend-il bête ?"

Faites l'impasse sur le titre qui est mal choisi et entrez dans l'analyse pertinente de Nicholas CARR. Cela aurait pu s'appeler "Influence de la technologie de la communication sur l'intelligence humaine au travers des siècles"... moins vendeur, certes. Les 5 étoiles sont pour la manière dont l'auteur a rendu accessible au grand public des études rébarbatives en leur donnant de la texture. J'ai lu ce livre comme on dévore un roman te...

Ethnography for Education (Doing Qualitative Research in Educational Settings)

Ethnography for Education

Ethnography is a distinctive approach for educational research. The authors argue that the last decade has seen ethnography come of age, not only as a way of doing research, but also as a way of theorizing and making sense of the world. Their approach is concerned with ethnography as process and ethnography as product. This critical celebration of ethnography explores what it can achieve in educational research. The book features: Th...
