The Rainmakers

by Paul Kisakye

Winner Sarraounia Prize for Young Adult Fiction 2020 Fifteen-year-old Tendo Katende was looking forward to the long holidays so he could take a deserved break from schoolwork, but two weeks in he can’t stand the routine of playing video games all day long any more. Will the rest of the holiday be like this? Then a visit from an uncle he has never met before changes everything. Uncle Moses comes with a gift of a holographic video game like none Tendo has ever played. When strange happenings at the farm start causing havoc, mayhem and destruction, Tendo gets into trouble with his father, concerned about the game's power. Is the new game linked to the mysterious events at the farm? Does that mean Tendo needs to stop playing his super-fun, highly addictive video game if he is to save the farm? What if there are more sinister forces with vindictive agendas at work on the farm? Suddenly, the holidays are no longer boring, Tendo teams up with his friends to solve the mystery before the whole farm is destroyed.

Entre le Savoir et le Culte: Activisme et mouvements religieux dans les universités du Sahel

by Leonardo A. Villalón

« Entre le Savoir et le Culte présente des études et documents originaux qui mettent à jour l’évolution de l’islam et du christianisme parmi les étudiants d’universités des pays du Sahel. Il révèle les fissures et les conflits entre les groupes, et analyse leurs modes oraux, écrits et vestimentaires d’affichage et de performance. Cet ouvrage apporte ainsi un puissant éclairage sur l’emprise du religieux sur l’élite en formation, et examine les deux interrogations qui alimentent l’activisme religieux universitaire : la signification de la revendication d’une identité musulmane ou chrétienne, et comment celle-ci façonne la modernité des deux religions et vice-versa. A lire pour comprendre le dynamisme des terribles crises qui amènent la région sahélienne à se tourner sur elle-même. » – Mamadou Diouf, Leitner Family Professor of African Studies, Columbia University, États-Unis. « Quelquefois négligées ou mal comprises par les analystes étrangers, les universités sahéliennes sont le théâtre de débats profonds sur l’identité nationale, et d’importantes négociations autour de la religiosité et de l’ethnicité. Cette collection rassemble les travaux d’éminents spécialistes dans ce domaine, et propose une perspective riche et comparative de leur travail collectif, ancrée dans leur recherche sur le terrain. L’ouvrage sera indispensable à tous les chercheurs, analystes, et décideurs politiques qui travaillent sur le Sahel. Ces chapitres contribueront beaucoup à la compréhension des expériences et priorités d’une génération d’activistes et de leaders qui marqueront la région dans les années à venir. » – Alex Thurston, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Université de Cincinnati, États-Unis

Motivation: Theory And Research

by Harold F. O’Neil Jr. Michael Drillings

Designed for professionals and graduate students in the personality/social, military, and educational psychology, and assessment/evaluation communities, this volume explores the state of the art in motivational research for individuals and teams from multiple theoretical viewpoints as well as their effects in both schools and training environments. The great majority of education and training R&D is focused on the cognitive dimensions of learning, for instance, the acquisition and retention of knowledge and skills. Less attention has been given in the literature and in the design of education and training itself to motivational variables and their influence on performance. As such, this book is unique in the following montage of factors: * a focus on motivation of teams or groups as well as individuals; * an examination of the impact of motivation on performance (and, thus, also on cognition) rather than only on motivation itself; * research in training as well as educational settings. The data reported were collected in various venues including schools, laboratories and field settings. The chapter authors are the researchers that, in many cases, have defined the state of the art in motivation.

Inequality in the Workplace: Underemployment among Mexicans, African Americans, and Whites (Routledge Library Editions: Employment and Unemployment #8)

by José M. Soltero

First published in 1995. During the late 1980s and early 1990s the American economy again became immersed in a recession. Consequently, it became very likely that the quality of employment generated during this period would suffer, and the situation of the labor force would be expected to worsen. The study of labor force stratification can illuminate ways in which the American working class is segmented, as well as the relation to other social problems like poverty and delinquency. In this book, the author explores underemployment, an arguably more accurate measure of labor force hardship than unemployment, amongst several demographic groups. This study will be of interest to students of both economics and sociology.

Speculations After Freud: Psychoanalysis, Philosophy and Culture

by Sonu Shamdasani Michael Münchow

Psychoanalysis has transformed our culture. We constantly use and refer to ideas from psychoanalysis, often unconsciously. Psychology, philosophy, politics, sociology, women's studies, anthropology, literary studies, cultural studies, and other disciplines have been permeated by the competing schools of psychoanalysis. But what of psychoanalysis itself? Where is it going one hundred years after Freud's own speculations took shape? Does it still have a role to play in cultural debate, or should it perhaps be abandoned? Speculations After Freud confronts the dilemmas of contemporary psychoanalysis by bringing together some of the most influential and best known writers on psychoanalysis, philosophy and culture. The advocates and critics of psychoanalysis, both institutional and theoretical, critically appraise the powerful role psychoanalytic speculation plays in all areas of culture.

The Fantastic in Modern Japanese Literature: The Subversion of Modernity (Nissan Institute/Routledge Japanese Studies)

by Susan Napier

Modern Japan's repressed anxieties, fears and hopes come to the surface in the fantastic. A close analysis of fantasy fiction, film and comics reveals the ambivalence felt by many Japanese towards the success story of the nation in the twentieth century.The Fantastic in Modern Japanese Literature explores the dark side to Japanese literature and Japanese society.

A wide range of fantasists, many discussed here in English for the first time, form the basis for a ground-breaking analysis of utopias, dystopias, the disturbing relationship between women, sexuality and modernity, and the role of the alien in the fantastic.

Borders, Boundaries, and Frames (Essays from the English Institute)

by Mae G. Henderson

The essays in this volume take up the challenge of working out -- or reworking -- the problematics of the borders, the boundaries and the frameworks that structure our various and multiple notions of identity -- textual, personal, collective, generic, and disciplinary. The contributors to this volume write about subjects (and are often themselves subjects) who "refuse to occupy a single territory" -- who cross geographical, cultural, national, linguistic, generic, specular and disciplinary borders. Essays by Kathryn Hellerstein, Anita Goldman, Jane Marcus and Scott Malcomson exlpore the semiotics of exile and the problem of its representation in the lives and writings of individual aritists and intellectuals. Autobiographical criticism, as represented in the essays by Nancy Miller and Sara Suleri, enlargess our conventional notions of what consitutes literature in general and criticism in particular.
