Book Summary: This three-volume set is a rich resource for readers in any discipline interested in understanding the global, regional, and domestic experiences of LGB people. This interdisciplinary set makes a vital contribution to understanding how LGB rights are progressing—and in some cases, regressing—around the globe. The three volumes look at the lived experiences of LGB people from varied perspectives and provide comprehensive coverage on a wide variety of topics ranging from LGB youth and LGB aging to the approaches to LGB people of different religions, including Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Chapters focus on topics including the ongoing criminalization of same-sex sexual conduct and how international human rights law can be used to improve the lives of LGB people.

Book Summary: Ce livre s’inscrit dans la tradition littéraire française des réquisitoires politiques. Sous la plume enflammée d’un jeune homme formé pour intégrer les élites mais croyant encore en la République, il dénonce et expose les preuves d’une captation de la démocratie par des oligarques puissants, en faveur d’intérêts de caste. Et comment le président Emmanuel Macron en fut à la fois la créature et l’instrument. Le publier est un acte citoyen.

Book Summary: Ethics and Law for School Psychologists is the single best source of authoritative information on the ethical and legal issues school psychologists face every day. Designed specifically to meet the unique needs of psychologists in school settings, this book includes the most up-to-date standards and requirements while providing an introduction to ethical codes, ethical decision making, and the legal underpinnings that protect the rights of students and their parents. This new seventh edition has been extensively updated with the latest research and changes to the law, with an increased focus on ethical-legal considerations associated with the use of digital technologies. Coverage includes new case law on privacy rights, electronic record keeping, the 2014 Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, digital assessment platforms, the latest interpretations of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and more. Ethics texts for counseling and psychology are plentiful, and often excellent—but this book is the only reference that speaks directly to the concerns and issues specific to psychologists in school settings. Case vignettes, end-of-chapter questions, and discussion topics facilitate deeper insight and learning, while updated instructor's resources bring this key reference right into the classroom. Keeping up with the latest research and legal issues is a familiar part of a psychologist's duties, but a practice centered on children in an educational setting makes it both critical and more complex. Ethics and Law for School Psychologists provides a central resource for staying up to date and delivering ethically and legally sound services within a school setting.

Book Summary: Le 8 décembre 1995, brutalement, un accident vasculaire a plongé Jean-Dominique Bauby dans un coma profond. Quand il en est sorti, toutes ses fonctions motrices étaient détériorées. Atteint de ce qu'on appelle le " locked-in syndrome " - littéralement : enfermé à l'intérieur de lui-même -, il ne pouvait plus bouger, manger, parler ou même simplement respirer sans assistance. Dans ce corps inerte, seul un oeil bouge. Cet oeil - le gauche -, c'est son lien avec le monde, avec les autres, avec la vie. Avec son oeil, il cligne une fois pour dire " oui ", deux fois pour dire " non ". Avec son oeil, il arrête l'attention de son visiteur sur les lettres de l'alphabet qu'on lui dicte et forme des mots, des phrases, des pages entières... Avec son oeil, il a écrit ce livre : chaque matin pendant des semaines, il en a mémorisé les pages avant de les dicter, puis de les corriger. Sous la bulle de verre de son scaphandre où volent des papillons, il nous envoie ces cartes postales d'un monde que nous ne pouvons qu'imaginer - un monde où il ne reste rien qu'un esprit à l'oeuvre. L'esprit est tour à tour sarcastique et désenchanté, d'une intensité qui serre le coeur. Quand on n'a plus que les mots, aucun mot n'est de trop.

Book Summary: In Domestic Violence: Intersectionality and Culturally Competent Practice, experts working with twelve unique groups of domestic abuse survivors provide the latest research on their populations and use a case study approach to demonstrate culturally sensitive intervention strategies. Chapters focus on African Americans, Native Americans, Latinas, Asian and Pacific Island communities, persons with disabilities, immigrants and refugees, women in later life, LGBT survivors, and military families. They address domestic violence in rural environments and among teens, as well as the role of religion in shaping attitudes and behavior. Lettie L. Lockhart and Fran S. Danis are editors of the Council of Social Work Education's popular teaching modules on domestic violence and founding co-chairs of the CSWE symposium on violence against women and children. In their introduction, they provide a thorough overview of intersectionality, culturally competent practice, and domestic violence and basic practice strategies, such as universal screening, risk assessment, and safety planning. They follow with collaborative chapters on specific populations demonstrating the value of generalist social work practice, including developing respectful relationships that define issues from the survivor's perspective; collecting and assessing data; setting goals and contracting; identifying culturally specific interventions; implementing culturally appropriate courses of action; participating in community-level strategies; and advocating for improved policies and funding at local, state, and federal levels. Featuring resources applicable to both practitioners and clients, Domestic Violence forms an effective tool for analysis and action.

Book Summary: “Slumdog Millionaire meets Ratatouille” (The New York Times Book Review) in this “delicious fairytale-like read” (NPR) about family, nationality, and the mysteries of good taste. Born above his grandfather’s modest restaurant in Mumbai, Hassan Haji first experienced life through intoxicating whiffs of spicy fish curry, trips to the local markets, and gourmet outings with his mother. But when tragedy pushes the family out of India, they console themselves by eating their way around the world, eventually settling in Lumière, a small village in the French Alps. The boisterous Haji family takes Lumière by storm. They open an inexpensive Indian restaurant opposite an esteemed French relais—that of the famous chef Madame Mallory—and infuse the sleepy town with the spices of India, transforming the lives of its eccentric villagers and infuriating their celebrated neighbor. Only after Madame Mallory wages culinary war with the immigrant family, does she finally agree to mentor young Hassan, leading him to Paris, the launch of his own restaurant, and a slew of new adventures. The Hundred-Foot Journey is about how the hundred-foot distance between a new Indian kitchen and a traditional French one can represent the gulf between different cultures and desires. A testament to the inevitability of destiny, this is a fable for the ages—charming, endearing, and compulsively readable.
