Smokefree - A Social, Moral and Political Atmosphere (Hardcover): Simone Dennis Smokefree - A Social, Moral and Political Atmosphere (Hardcover)
Simone Dennis
R3,087 Discovery Miles 30 870 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Although tobacco is a legal substance, many governments around the world have introduced legislation to restrict smoking and access to tobacco products. Smokefree critically examines these changes, from the increasing numbers of places being designated as 'smokefree' to changes in cigarette packaging and the portrayal of smoking in popular culture. Unlike existing texts, this book neither advances a public health agenda nor condemns the erosion of individual rights. Instead, Simone Dennis takes a classical anthropological approach to present the first agenda-free, full-length study of smoking. Observing and analysing smoking practices and environments, she investigates how the social, moral, political and legal atmosphere of 'smokefree' came into being and examines the ideas about smoke, air, the senses, space, and time which underlie it. Looking at the impact on public space and individuals, she reveals broader findings about the relationship between the state, agents, and what is seen to constitute 'the public'. Enriched with ethnographic vignettes from the author's ten years of fieldwork in Australia, Smokefree is a challenging, important book which demands to be read and discussed by anyone with an interest in anthropology, sociology, political science, human geography, and public health.

Nick Love directs this big screen modern-day revamp of the classic British 1970s television series. Ray Winstone and pop star Plan B (aka Ben Drew) star as Regan and Carter, the iconic cop duo played by John Thaw and Dennis Waterman in the original version. When an armed robbery at a jewellery store causes Regan's investigations into a potential bank robbery to come to a standstill, he believes old enemy Francis Allen (Paul Anderson) is responsible.

However, having no evidence against him leaves the Flying Squad officer powerless to bring him in, but when Regan hears that Allen is now in business with a well known Serbian criminal, he becomes determined to catch the culprits whatever the cost.

This new edition reflects the huge advances in the field of cardiothoracic medicine that have taken place over the past ten years. Illustrated throughout, it features contributions from leaders in the fields of cardiology and respiratory disorders from the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. The approach of the Manual has been remodeled to enhance the practitioner's access to information.

The Manual begins with a look at the clinical approach to a range of common presenting signs. This is followed by details of diagnostic tests and techniques, including imaging and blood pressure measurement. Therapeutic strategies for these are discussed, and detailed discussions of specific conditions are presented. Useful appendices include a drug formulary and ECG reference ranges

Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton and Glenn Close star in this sci-fi drama based on M.R. Carey's novel. In a post-apocalyptic future, humanity has been devastated by a mutated fungal disease that has turned most of the Earth's population into ravenous zombies, known as 'hungries'. In a secure army base in Birmingham, a group of scientists experiment on part-human, part-hungry, hybrid children in the hope of finding a possible cure to the epidemic. In this fortified facility, teacher Helen Justineau (Arterton) believes ten-year-old Melanie (Nanua) may hold the answers to a future cure but objects to her superior, Dr. Caroline Caldwell (Close)'s plan to kill her for further experimentation. When the survivors find their base under attack from hungries they are forced to flee to England's destroyed capital where they continue their fight for survival and for a better future.

Handbook of Latent Semantic Analysis (Hardcover): Thomas K Landauer, Danielle S. McNamara, Simon Dennis, Walter Kintsch Handbook of Latent Semantic Analysis (Hardcover)

R3,525 Discovery Miles 35 250 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The" Handbook of Latent Semantic Analysis "is the authoritative reference for the theory behind Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), a burgeoning mathematical method used to analyze how words make meaning, with the desired outcome to program machines to understand human commands via natural language rather than strict programming protocols. The first book of its kind to deliver such a comprehensive analysis, this volume explores every area of the method and combines theoretical implications as well as practical matters of LSA.

Readers will be introduced to a powerful new way of understanding language phenomena, as well as innovative ways to perform tasks that depend on language or other complex systems. The "Handbook "clarifies misunderstandings and pre-formed objections to LSA, and provides examples of exciting new educational technologies made possible by LSA and similar techniques. It raises issues in philosophy, artificial intelligence, and linguistics, while describing how LSA has underwritten a range of educational technologies and information systems. Alternate approaches to language understanding are addressed and compared to LSA.

This work" "is essential reading for anyone-- newcomers to this area and experts alike-- interested in how human language works or interested in computational analysis and uses of text. Educational technologists, cognitive scientists, philosophers, and information technologists in particular will consider this volume especially useful.

Social Enterprise - Accountability and Evaluation around the World (Hardcover, New): Simon Denny, Frederick Seddon Social Enterprise - Accountability and Evaluation around the World (Hardcover, New)
Simon Denny, Frederick Seddon
R3,248 Discovery Miles 32 480 Out of stock

Social enterprise has become a much discussed term in recent years, often in conjunction with the public sector - the idea that entrepreneurship might somehow step in and save the public purse has taken hold in a number of areas. This book introduces and explains the terminology surrounding social enterprise and brings much-needed rigour to proceedings by demonstrating how this can be measured, evaluated and held accountable. A range of validated evaluation measures, tools and techniques, such as `SROI', the `Outcomes Star' and randomised control trials, are presented in individual research projects, conducted by an exciting and eclectic mix of international authors who are recognised experts in the field of social enterprise. Wrapping up with the ground-breaking use of a General Self-Efficacy scale, a reflective critique of social finance and a challenge to the actual concept of social enterprise, the book discusses the potential disadvantages that can arise from the commodification of social enterprise activities, resulting in a fascinating summary of current thinking surrounding this topic.

Police Beat - The Emotional Power of Music in Police Work (Hardcover, New): Simone Dennis Police Beat - The Emotional Power of Music in Police Work (Hardcover, New)
Simone Dennis
R1,611 Discovery Miles 16 110 Out of stock

Written by Simone Dennis, Lecturer in Anthropology at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, this book illuminates the social processes of being and becoming emotional and of making music, and the ways in which these processes are intertwined in the context of an Australian police department that wields subtle forms of power by emotional and musical means. The book is based on 18 months of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in a metropolitan police (concert) band. Of primary analytic concern is the embodied and social basis of emotion, and its capacity to facilitate connections between persons in and through musical means. Police Beat moves away from a focus on the cognitive apparatus that produces experiences, and which thusly obscure the far more active and multisensual roles that musicians have in constituting and organizing their own sensual perceptions, to focus on embodied and social experiences of making music, and of making emotion. The book offers new insights into the means and modes of wielding subtle forms of policing power in the contemporary world, and points to the importance of music in organizing the social world.
