Contestation and Adaptation: The Politics of National Identity in China
Contestation and Adaptation unravels the complexities of national-identity contestation among various ethnic minority groups in China. It focuses on the interactions between domestic and international forces that inform ethnic groups' national-identity contestation, positing a theoretical framework where international factors play a significant role in determining why and when ethnic groups will contest the national identities imposed on them by central governments as part of the nation-building process.

Simmering grievances and occasional outbursts of social unrest among ethnic minority populations in China challenge not only the ruling party's legitimacy and governance, but also contemporary Chinese national identity and the territorial integrity of the Chinese state. But, as Enze Han points out, of the fifty-five ethnic minority groups in China, only the Tibetans and Uyghurs have forcefully contested the idea of a Chinese national identity. He argues that whether ethnic groups contest those national identities depends on whether they perceive a better, achievable alternative. In particular, Han argues that ethnic groups with extensive external kinship networks are most likely to perceive a capacity to achieve better circumstances and are, therefore, more likely to politically mobilize to contest national identity. In the absence of such alternatives ethnic groups are more likely to cope with their situation through emigration, political ambivalence, or assimilation. Using this theoretical framework, the book compares the way that five major ethnic minority groups in China negotiate their national identities with the Chinese nation-state: Uyghurs, Chinese Koreans, Dai, Mongols, and Tibetans. Overall, Contestation and Adaptation sheds light on the nation-building processes in China over the past six decades and the ways that different groups have resisted or acquiesced in their dealings with the Chinese state and majority Han Chinese society.

Church, Nation and Race: Catholics and Antisemitism in Germany and England, 1918 – 45 By Ulrike Ehret
2012 | 288 Pages | ISBN: 0719079438 | PDF | 2 MB

Church, Nation and Race: Catholics and Antisemitism in Germany and England, 1918 – 45
Church, nation and race compares the worldviews and factors that promoted or, indeed, opposed antisemitism amongst Catholics in Germany and England after the First World War. As a prequel to books on Hitler, fascism and genocide, the book turns towards ideas and attitudes that preceded and shaped the ideologies of the 1920s and 1940s. Apart from the long tradition of Catholic anti-Jewish prejudices, the book discusses new and old alternatives to European modernity offered by Catholics in Germany and England. Numerous events in the interwar years provoked anti-Jewish responses among Catholics: the revolutionary end of the war and financial scandals in Germany; Palestine and the Spanish Civil War in England. At the same time the rise of fascism and National Socialism gave Catholics the opportunity to respond to the anti-democratic and antisemitic waves these movements created in their wake. Church, nation and race is a political history of ideas that introduces Catholic views of modern society, race, nation and the 'Jewish question'. It shows to what extent these views were able to inform political and social activity. This study will interest academics and students of antisemitism, European history, German and British history.

Negotiations without a Loser

FREEDownload : Negotiations without a Loser

Iwar Unt, "Negotiations without a Loser"
English | ISBN: 8716134605, 8763000857 | 1999 | 158 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Negotiations without a Loser
Honoured as Swedish Management Book of the Year, this book offers entertaining reading and provides a new attitude to negotiations: not win-lose, but win-win.

Sales managers, business executives, and many professionals negotiate every day, not only with customers and contractors but with colleagues, managers and union representatives. The author argues strongly that negotiations should not be a fight over getting the bigger part of the cake, but rather a search for added value, aiming at results with more than one winner.

Successful negotiations require the ability to identify the needs and the negotiation margins of your counterpart, careful preparations and a close look at the total economy and possible alternatives. The reader of this book learns not only more about efficient negotiations, but obtains also insight into the rules, dynamics and psychology of negotiations. Numerous examples illustrate the arguments.

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession by Roger K. Lewis
2013 | ISBN: 0262518848 | English | 248 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession
Since 1985, Architect? has been an essential text for aspiring architects, offering the best basic guide to the profession available. This third edition has been substantially revised and rewritten, with new material covering the latest developments in architectural and construction technologies, digital methodologies, new areas of focus in teaching and practice, evolving aesthetic philosophies, sustainability and green architecture, and alternatives to traditional practice.

Architect? tells the inside story of architectural education and practice; it is realistic, unvarnished, and insightful. Chapter 1 asks "Why Be an Architect?" and chapter 2 offers reasons "Why Not to Be an Architect." After this provocative beginning, Architect? goes on to explain and critique architectural education, covering admission, degree and curriculum types, and workload as well as such post-degree options as internship, teaching, and work in related fields. It offers a detailed discussion of professors and practitioners and the "-isms" and "-ologies" most prevalent in teaching and practicing architecture. It explains how an architect works and gets work, and describes architectural services from initial client contact to construction oversight. The new edition also includes a generous selection of drawings and cartoons from the author's Washington Post column, "Shaping the City," offering teachable moments wittily in graphic form.

The author, Roger Lewis, has taught, practiced, and written extensively about architecture for many years. In Architect? he explains — for students, professors, practitioners, and even prospective clients — how architects think and work and what they care about as they strive to make the built environment commodious, beautiful, and sustainable.
