EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This fully revised and updated third edition of the highly acclaimed Memory in the Real World includes recent research in all areas of everyday memory. Distinguished researchers have contributed new and updated material in their own areas of expertise. The controversy about the value of naturalistic research, as opposed to traditional laboratory methods, is outlined, and the two approaches are seen to have converged and become complementary rather than antagonistic. The editors bring together studies on many different topics, such as memory for plans and actions, for names and faces, for routes and maps, life experiences and flashbulb memory, and eyewitness memory. Emphasis is also given to the role of memory in consciousness and metacognition. New topics covered in this edition include life span development of memory, collaborative remembering, deja-vu and memory dysfunction in the real world. Memory in the Real World will be of continuing appeal to students and researchers in the area.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

People often act reflexively when faced with an ethical challenge. The necessity to make a fast decision leaves little time to think clearly. We get distracted by what our colleagues and others expect from us, and we make snap decisions that we regret. While most agree that outright lying, stealing, and harming are wrong, they seem to disagree about smaller compromises. This book argues that it's better and more satisfying to choose instead of react, to understand distinctions instead of guess what is right for us, and to remain cognizant of the impact of ethical compromise on our effectiveness at work and our personal relationships. The chapters of this book offer lessons and practical tools to help readers: 1. Develop radar to identify the situations where we are forced to make ethical compromises; 2. Understand how to use solid ethical logic and principles to foster clear thinking; 3. Draft and refine a personal code of conduct, and make it practical for everyday use; 4. Go beyond ethical basics to using your personal code as a lever for making more consistent decisions and reducing stress in work and life. Many books about ethics discuss weighty and controversial issues that few of us deal with in daily life--abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, animal rights. While these books are valuable, they are not so much tools for decision making as food for thought. This book, in contrast, focuses on one of ethics' most insidious problems: our inability to make clear and consistent choices in everyday life. The practical tools and techniques in this book help readers design a set of personal standards, based on sound ethical reasoning, for reducing everyday compromises.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this new book, Lyng and Franks argue that contemporary sociology has lost its connection to human realities. Addressing the conceptual underpinnings of sociological practice, they offer ways for sociology to reclaim lost concepts of objectivity, reality, and truth. The authors deconstruct these terms in modern and postmodern contexts, yet they look beyond the usual predicaments espoused by these traditions in an effort to rebuild concepts of reality and truth more coherently for contemporary social relations and social problems.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Social Theory in the Real World is concerned with illustrating the practical benefits of social theory. Many students find it hard to relate the real insights provided by social theory to their real life experiences, and many lecturers struggle to demonstrate the relevance of social theory to everyday life. This book offers an accessible, non-patronizing solution to the problem, demonstrating that social theory need not be remote and obscure, but if used in imaginative ways, it can be indispensable in challenging our common sense perceptions and understandings. The book identifies the key themes of contemporary social theory: mass society, postindustrialism, consumerism, postmodernism, McDonaldization, risk and globa

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Negotiating is a face-to-face human drama that can be as genteel as croquet or as brutal as a prizefight," observes Victor Gotbaum. He should know -- no one has mastered this drama better than Gotbaum himself, who for more than twenty years headed the largest municipal employees' union in the country, earning a reputation as a tough, skilled negotiator who gets results. In Negotiating in the Real World, he draws on his experience to show how readers can also get results by sharpening their negotiating skills in every situation -- from getting a raise to buying a house or getting a divorce. All of us negotiate every day, sometimes in ways we don't even think of as negotiating. Resolving a problem with a coworker, discussing your child's allowance, or reaching agreement with your spouse on how much television your children should be watching are all examples of negotiations. And all negotiations, large and small, business or personal, follow the same principles. In clear and candid terms, Victor Gotbaum explains what those principles are: evaluating your own negotiating ability; measuring the ability and interests of your adversary; understanding the interests of those you represent; and being aware of how outside factors influence your negotiations. In Negotiating in the Real World, Gotbaum cites examples of how awareness or ignorance of these principles determined the outcome of a negotiation. Drawing on decades of expertise, he discusses how to keep the momentum going in negotiations, how to recognize when emotion becomes a stumbling block, and when to bring in a third party (using the 1994 Major League Baseball strike as one example). He explains the different types of mediators and arbitrators, and why you should avoid some of them except as an absolute last resort. Illustrated with numerous anecdotes and examples from real-life situations, and written with the frank, hard-hitting style for which Gotbaum is renowned, Negotiating in the Real World is an invaluable and practical guide for both novice and experienced negotiators on how to walk away from the bargaining table a winner.
