Books Description:

We Dwell in Possibilities By: Carlotta G. Holton As women, we are constantly evolving. Changing attitudes toward our gender have accommodated many, but not all. Still, we are told, it is progress. Women can now enter career paths never before considered. They can choose not to marry, not to have children, or become a single parent. Women can marry someone of the same sex, younger or older, regardless of race, ethnicity or religion. The lines, for the most part, between sexism, ageism, and racism have blurred, though they are still visible. So, if as we were told years ago in the 1968 Virginia Slims cigarette commercial, “We’ve come a long way baby,” just where do we stand now? In We Dwell in Possibilities: What American Women Think about Practically Everything!, Carlotta G. Holton strives to answer this question through the intensive study she conducted over years of research, interviews, and analysis. So, what do American women think about practically everything?

Books Description:

The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary Issues in Expropriation reviews the contemporary major issues involving expropriation (eminent domain/compulsory purchase) in an international context. Expropriation is a right reserved to all governments, and, thus, it has an impact on all societies.

The content covers major issues, principles and policies and includes the experiences of and examples from different countries and regions, including Australia, Asia, China, Europe, India and the USA. Rather than providing an in-depth examination of individual countries’ legal systems, the book focuses on international issues, and also provides a reflection on how national experiences can be related to global needs. Key themes include: Nature and quantum of compensation • Land rights and the acquisition of traditional land rights • Issues surrounding ‘public interest’ •Alternatives to expropriation •The future: “good practice”, debate and reform. This handbook is an essential resource for students and researchers in the areas of land policy, land law, property law and rights, and international development.

Books Description:

The unifying theme of Women and Careers is women’s educational and employment success, with the objective of profiling supportive public policy in global contexts from Atlantic Canada to Western Europe, Australia and China. It takes up the career processes of women from marginalized groups who have been underrepresented historically: women who are the first generation to graduate from university in both Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick) and China and rural women from the eastern most Canadian province (Newfoundland and Labrador). It examines the situation of marginalized Protestant women in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who benefit from a European Union program that supports their political and social involvement in an economically underdeveloped region and previously unimagined in a country once wrought by sectarian violence. A policy analysis of an Atlantic Canadian region after the dominant forestry industry leaves takes up policy options and women’s possible agency should economic support return for small business networks and social enterprise, e.g., credit unions, food and social housing cooperatives. Proactive employment equity programs in Finland’s Applied Science Institute and Switzerland’s Forestry Institute provide cutting edge examples of diversity and inclusion policies in education and academia. A comparative study of Canada and Australia of two leading public service employers illustrates incremental outcomes for women managers and professionals but raises the ultimate question of the pace and necessary political will required to remove barriers to gender equality in countries with major gender inequities. Women and Careers examines a series of institutional contexts transnationally and the impact of policies, programs and economic re-structuring on careers outcomes. It displays the latest research on the topic and will be of interest both to students at an advanced level, academics, reflective practitioners, and diversity managers. It addresses the topics with regard to women’s education and employment and will interest researchers, academics and policymakers in the fields of women’s employment and career studies, diversity programs, organization studies, development policy, gender studies and globalization.
