Throughout history, women from all over the world have come together for diverse and often contradictory purposes in informal networks, or as participants in men's organizations, or even more or less covertly. However, in Britain and Ireland at least, it is only in the past two centuries that they have in significant numbers banded together openly, formally, separately and autonomously. They have done so for a variety of reasons: to further a political cause, to improve social relations, to improve their understanding of the world or to acquire particular skills, to share a leisure or cultural interest, to further an occupational or professional interest, for solidarity with women of similar persuasions, to distinguish themselves from other women, and sometimes for good fellowship or just to have fun.

Dictionary of Biological Psychology (Hardcover): Philip Winn Dictionary of Biological Psychology (Hardcover)

R6,426 Discovery Miles 64 260 Ships in 10 - 15 working days


Biological Psychology is the study of psychological processes in terms of biological functions. A major obstacle to understanding dialogue in the field has always been its terminology which is drawn from a variety of non-psychological sources such as clinical medicine, psychiatry and neuroscience, as well as specialist areas of psychology such as ethology, learning theory and psychophysics. For the first time, a distinguished international team of contributors has now drawn these terms together and defined them both in terms of their physical properties and their behavioural significance.
The Dictionary of Biological Psychology will prove an invaluable source of reference for undergraduates in psychology wrestling with the fundamentals of brain physiology, anatomy and chemistry, as well as researchers and practitioners in the neurosciences, psychiatry and the professions allied to medicine. It is an essential resource both for teaching and for independent study, reliable for fact-checking and a solid starting point for wider exploration.

The Netherlands Yearbook of International Law (NYIL) was first published in 1970. It offers a forum for the publication of scholarly articles of a more general nature in the area of public international law including the law of the European Union. With this volume on 'Legal Equality and the International Rule of Law', the Netherlands Yearbook of International Law celebrates Pieter Kooijmans' academic, diplomatic, and judicial career by picking up on an important subject in his early writings, the principle of legal equality of states. This volume studies if and how the principle of legal equality of states is still important in the international legal order of the early 21st century. In particular, this volume examines the principle's current relevance, e.g., in a pluralistic legal order, its relation to hegemony in international relations and international law, and how it functions in contemporary international organisations. The principle is further explored in the fields of international criminal law, international humanitarian law, and the international law of sovereign immunity.
