The aftermath of modern war includes a population of veterans whose needs last for many decades far longer than the war itself. This in-depth study looks at life after the military, considering the dual conundrum of a population benefiting from the perks of their duty, yet continuing to deal with trauma resulting from their service, and of former servicemen and servicewomen trying to fit in to civilian life in a system designed to keep them separate. Through two comprehensive volumes, essays shed light on more than 30 topics involving or affecting former servicemen and servicewomen, offering a blueprint for the formal study of U.S. veterans in the future. Contributions from dozens of experts in the field of military science cover such issues as unemployment, homelessness, disability, access to higher education, health, media portrayal, criminal justice, substance abuse, guns, suicide, and politics. Through information gleaned from surveys, interviews, participant observations, secondary analyses, and content analyses, the chapters reveal how veterans are able to successfully contribute to civilian life and show how the American workforce can benefit from their unique set of skills."

Managing expatriates and other ‘traditional’ internationally mobile workers is a significant part of many academic programmes and the focus of some specialist ones. But we cannot answer the big questions about global mobility if we exclude from our teaching people who do not fit with our usual conceptions and assumptions about who it is that organisations employ.

Building on the success of the 2003 Handbook of the Life Course, this second volume identifies future directions for life course research and policy. The introductory essay and the chapters that make up the five sections of this book, show consensus on strategic “next steps” in life course studies. These next steps are explored in detail in each section: Section I, on life course theory, provides fresh perspectives on well-established topics, including cohorts, life stages, and legal and regulatory contexts. It challenges life course scholars to move beyond common individualistic paradigms. Section II highlights changes in major institutional and organizational contexts of the life course. It draws on conceptual advances and recent empirical findings to identify promising avenues for research that illuminate the interplay between structure and agency. It examines trends in family, school, and workplace, as well as contexts that deserve heightened attention, including the military, the criminal justice system, and natural and man-made disaster. The remaining three sections consider advances and suggest strategic opportunities in the study of health and development throughout the life course. They explore methodological innovations, including qualitative and three-generational longitudinal research designs, causal analysis, growth curves, and the study of place. Finally, they show ways to build bridges between life course research and public policy.

Download Race Nation Empire in American History Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
While public debates over America's current foreign policy often treat American empire as a new phenomenon, this lively collection of essays offers a pointed reminder that visions of national and imperial greatness were a cornerstone of the new country when it was founded. In fact, notions of empire have long framed debates over western expansion, Indian removal, African slavery, Asian immigration, and global economic dominance, and they persist today despite the proliferation of anti-imperialist rhetoric. In fifteen essays, distinguished historians examine the central role of empire in American race relations, nationalism, and foreign policy from the founding of the United States to the twenty-first century. Full of transnational connections and cross-pollinations, of people appearing in unexpected places, the essays are also stories of people being put, quite literally, in their place by the bitter struggles over the boundaries of race and nation. Collectively, these essays demonstrate that the seemingly contradictory processes of boundary crossing and boundary making are and always have been intertwined. The contributors are James T. Campbell, Ruth Feldstein, Kevin K. Gaines, Matt Garcia, Matthew Pratt Guterl, George Hutchinson, Matthew Frye Jacobson, Prema Kurien, Robert G. Lee, Eric Love, Melani McAlister, Joanne Pope Melish, Louise M. Newman, Vernon J. Williams Jr., and Natasha Zaretsky. The editors are James T. Campbell, Matthew Pratt Guterl, and Robert G. Lee.

The express purpose of this book is to provide concrete evidence that the Bible is not just a religious book; it is a scientific book that teaches us how the universe was created; it is a social book that teaches us how to live peaceably with our neighbors; it is a prophetic and historical book that reveals how God has worked in the past to fulfill His promises and purposes; and it is a spiritual book that teaches how God has revealed his will and purpose for humanity. The book is divided into five volumes which deal with questions that we might ask about the Bible and the origin of the universe. The first four volumes of the book deal with the four dimensions of the Bible. Volume 1 deals with the Physical (Scientific) Dimension of the Bible. It seeks to answer the questions: How did we get here? How old is the universe? And who are our Ancestors? Volume 2 deals with the Spiritual Dimension of the Bible and seeks to find Universal Principles from God’s Word that teach us how to live according to God’s will. Volume 3 deals with the Prophetic Dimension of the Bible. It provides a historical record of how God has worked through the Nation of Israel to pre-determine the events and conditions of life and judged the nation’s responses to the events and conditions of life. Volume 4 deals with the Social Dimension of the Bible. It defines the four social institutions created by God: the family, human government, the Nation of Israel, and the Church, and describes how the Universal Principles discovered in Volume 2 may be or have been applied in those four social institutions. Volume 5 summarizes the bottom-line conclusions and recommendations from the scientific analysis of the four dimensions of the Bible, and it defines the meaning of the symbols that are used to represent the Universal Principles.

The U.S. military is a massive institution, and its policies on sex, gender, and sexuality have shaped the experiences of tens of millions of Americans, sometimes in life-altering fashion. The essays in Managing Sex in the U.S. Military examine historical and contemporary military policies and offer different perspectives on the broad question: “How does the U.S. military attempt to manage sex?” This collection focuses on the U.S. military’s historical and contemporary attempts to manage sex—a term that is, in practice, slippery and indefinite, encompassing gender and gender identity, sexuality and sexual orientation, and sexual behaviors and practices, along with their outcomes. In each chapter, the authors analyze the military’s evolving definitions of sex, sexuality, and gender, and the significance of those definitions to both the military and American society.
