The Psychology of Reading Alan Kennedy 2017-11-06 Originally published in 1984, this new introductory text fulfilled a need amongst both psychology and education students for a book which dealt with reading in a way that explored areas beyond the strictly practical question of how to teach children to read. Previous books on the psychology of reading had often concentrated on the analytic approach, in which reading had been seen in terms of a set of interconnected sub-skills and the experimental study of these components had become an end in itself. As a result, although great advances had been made in our understanding of certain aspects of the process, psychological studies of reading had increasingly been seen by teachers and others as unduly abstract. The Psychology of Reading goes back to first principles and attempts to set reading in its context alongside other cognitive activities, particularly those involving memory and perceptual processes. Professor Kennedy argues that it is wrong to set reading apart as a ‘skill’ when it needs to be understood against a background of work in cognitive psychology. Reading is a social phenomenon concerned with human communication, and in this context it must be seen in terms of an interaction between writer and reader. The book explores the nature of this interaction and the various stylistic and other devices which sustain the ‘contract’ between reader and writer. In particular, the psychological processes which allow a reader to make sensible assumptions about a writer’s intentions are dealt with in detail. No theory of reading, the author argues, should ignore the purpose of the enterprise. Similarly, explaining success and failure in teaching children to read may well hinge on an understanding of what children think reading is about. The style of this book is concise and largely non-technical. The Psychology of Reading will be welcomed as stimulating and demanding by experts and non-specialist general readers alike.
The Christena Whitman T Browne 2020-10-20 The ferry Christena sank on a routine trip from St. Kitts to Nevis, August 1, 1970. It was a sudden accident in which almost 250, men, women, and children died. Nevisians and Kittitians at home and abroad were devastated over the loss of relatives and friends. About 100 passengers survived, and told very sad stories about their experiences. Monuments on Nevis still bring back vivid memories of that horrible incident. August 1, 2020, will mark the 50th, anniversary of that tragedy in the islands. Back then, particularly on Nevis, the islanders capitalized on the Christena event. They came together and moved beyond their pain, during a time of political uncertainty. Seizing the opportunity for change, Nevisians demanded a new politics on their island.

Brazil Stephen Kanitz 1995 Is your company ready to take advantage of the new growth cycle that is beginning in Brazil and should last the next ten years? Few Brazilian experts are as qualified to answer this question as the author of this book, Stephen Charles Kanitz. The original version of this book, written in Portuguese, became a best seller in Brazil only a month after publication. A Harvard MBA, Professor Kanitz is the editor of the Brazilian equivalent of Fortune 500, the 'Best and Biggest' yearbook published by Exame, Brazil's leading business magazine. As long ago as 1984, Professor Kanitz predicted the recession then awaiting the Brazilian economy. He is no intrinsic optimist. In this book, buttressed with masses of data, figures and examples, Professor Kanitz shows that the years of stagnation have been left behind. To take maximum advantage of this new economic boom, before competitors do, you must become aware that Brazil is ready for a new surge of growth, which will be similar in many respects to the 'economic miracle' of the seventies.

Boomtown Saloons Kelly J. Dixon 2006-12-01 The image of Old West saloons as sites of violence and raucous entertainment has been perpetuated by film and legend, but the true story of such establishments is far more complex. In Boomtown Saloons, archaeologist Kelly J. Dixon recounts the excavation of four historic saloon sites in Nevada’s Virginia City, one of the West’s most important boomtowns, and shows how the physical traces of this handful of disparate drinking places offer a new perspective on authentic life in the mining West. During the second half of the nineteenth century, the Comstock Lode’s mineral wealth attracted people from all over the world. At its peak, Virginia City had a cosmopolitan population of over 20,000 people. Like people everywhere, they sought to pass their leisure time in congenial company, often in one or another of the four saloons studied here. Dixon’s account of the role these four establishments played in the social and economic life of Virginia City offers keen insight into the businesses and people who made up the backdrop of a mining boomtown. The saloons in this study were quieter than legend would have us believe; they served relatively distinct groups and offered their customers a place of refuge, solidarity, and social contact with peers in a city where few people had longtime ties or initially any close contacts. Boomtown Saloons also offers an equally vivid portrait of the modern historical archaeologist who combines time-honored digging, reconstruction, and analysis methods with such cutting-edge technology as DNA analysis of saliva traces on a 150-year-old pipestem and chemical analysis of the residue in discarded condiment bottles. The book is illustrated with historical photographs and maps, as well as photographs of artifacts uncovered during the excavations of the four sites. Dixon’s sparkling text and thoughtful interpretation of evidence reveal an unknown aspect of daily life in one of the West’s most storied boomtowns and demonstrate that, contrary to legend, the traditional western saloon served an vital and complex social role in its community.Available in hardcover and paperback.

Bully Nation Charles Derber 2016-05-02 Bully Nation is the most comprehensive analysis of bullying yet published. It is a brilliant book that refused to define bullying as merely a psychological concept. Instead, it addresses in great detail the interplay of bullying as having its roots in a range of historical, economic, political, and social conditions. In this instance, bullying functions as a metaphor to connect the private the public, specific acts of violence to larger forms of systemic violence. Rather than treat bullying as part of a rite of passage confined to the often difficult process of growing up, Derber and Magrass treat it as a systemic force that produces values, social relations, structures, and collective identities steeped in violence and aggression. This is a powerful and compelling book that addresses one of the most important social problems of our time.
