Physical anthropology is a branch of anthropology that studies the mechanisms of biological evolution, genetic inheritance, human adaptability and variation, primatology, primate morphology, and the fossil record of human evolution. This book presents and reviews data on physical anthropology, including such topics as: sex determination of human skeletal and dental remains in palaeodemographic reconstructions; age and sex differences in aggregated and disaggregated upper limb osteoarthritis, muscle marker, external metric, and cross-sectional variables of 131 prehistoric California Amerinds to determine asymmetry patterns; a review of the variation in the angle of the femoral neck-shaft angle and its relation to climatic adaptation; and others.
Many books exist on various aspects of event management, reflecting growing academic and professional interest, but there has not been a book written on Event Studies until now. As the event management field expands, there is a growth in demand for advanced texts, particularly with a multidisciplinary research and theoretical orientation. Event Studies is the first text to embrace this new direction in the field of event management providing: * Students and practitioners with an explanation of why planned events are important from a social/cultural, economic and environmental perspective. * Readers with an understanding of how various disciplines and other professional fields view planned events, and the contributions they make to understanding events. * Research students with a detailed evaluation of research issues and challenges, and of methodologies and theories applicable to event studies. The bibliography is extensive and numerous research examples are provided. * Professionals with a tool to expand their knowledge well beyond the art and science of producing events to include the philosophical and scientific foundations of event studies. For the event management student, and for professionals, Event Studies provides the necessary body of knowledge and theoretical /methodological underpinnings on the subject of planned events.
Dr Aligwekwe’s previous books have been exceptionally focused on reviewing African culture/tradition through history; aimed at both recapturing and, thus, perpetuating those laudable elements that could be submerged by some contemporary indiscriminate and harmful forces of change. These publications called for the elimination of the non-meritorious and contemptible, and the enhancement of the favourable. The present volume, Behavioural Science for Students of Science and Technology, is approximately a sum total of some other key areas of the author’s university lectures, and is directed particularly to students and researchers of contemporary science and technology in Africa in particular and other relevant regions of the world in general, to help disseminate the awareness that can save Africa from plunging into the same potholes in which the leaders of civilizations overly reliant on modern science and technology have found themselves and are struggling to find a way out of. Science and technology and culture are naturally interdependent. However, while immersed in the enthusiasm for success, science and technology could easily neglect or bypass the negative human and social effects of such efforts—its objectives are purely technical or “dry-cut” in terms of their techno-economic aims; whereas socio-cultural and symbolic values (inevitable realities of life) are essential instruments for curbing excessiveness and rashness in Man’s rush to advance science and technology. Could an African example temper past world mistakes and offer a taste of the usefulness and benefit of caution?
The goal of cultural psychology is to explain the ways in which human cultural constructions -- for example, rituals, stereotypes, and meanings -- organize and direct human acting, feeling, and thinking in different social contexts. A rapidly growing, international field of scholarship, cultural psychology is ready for an interdisciplinary, primary resource. Linking psychology, anthropology, sociology, archaeology, and history, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the quintessential volume that unites the variable perspectives from these disciplines. Comprised of over fifty contributed chapters, this book provides a necessary, comprehensive overview of contemporary cultural psychology. Bridging psychological, sociological, and anthropological perspectives, one will find in this handbook: - A concise history of psychology that includes valuable resources for innovation in psychology in general and cultural psychology in particular - Interdisciplinary chapters including insights into cultural anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, culture and conceptions of the self, and semiotics and cultural connections - Close, conceptual links with contemporary biological sciences, especially developmental biology, and with other social sciences - A section detailing potential methodological innovations for cultural psychology By comparing cultures and the (often differing) human psychological functions occuring within them, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the ideal resource for making sense of complex and varied human phenomena.
This terrific handbook offers the most accurate and helpful information available for making decisions on a college major, or what to do with a degree you have. Readers learn which majors are the best investment, the job and salary prospects for specific majors, the employment growth rates for particular majors, and how many graduates go on to additional education. The second edition includes substantial new information, including the important steps to take before college to ensure future career success, the rising earnings premiums related to a college education, and the misinformation that exists about college costs and the belief that the "sticker price" of college is the final price. Each chapter describes the major and the courses it requires; discusses jobs that graduates actually obtain; and gives information on employers, tasks, and salaries.
