With many OECD countries experiencing a decline in their populations, this bookoffers a theoretical model of coping with demographic change and examines different strategies that societies have used to come to terms with demographic change. In particular, it details the different ways that Germany and Poland have tried to cope with this challenge and reveals three conflicting strategies: expansion, reduction, and phasing out.
Â· How and why demographic change was used in Poland to expand the education system
Â· The variance of linkage between demographic change and growth rates in different fields of education in a German Bundesland
Â· Modes of reflexivity and personnel policy in German and Polish municipalities
Â· Effects of demographic change and forms of coping on fiscal capacity and unemployment rates in German municipalities
Coping with Demographic Change examines how and why societies cope with these detrimental effects. It conceptualizes the challenges a society faces as a result of demographic change and focuses on the processes by which actors, organizations and nation-states try to cope with this new situation.
Hinduism is arguably the world's oldest religion. Yet the word 'Hindu' is of foreign 18th-century origin. Although defined as polytheistic, Gandhi famously declared that one can be a Hindu without believing in any god. Introducing Hinduism examines the key philosophical, literary, mythological and cultural traditions of this diverse faith. It explores links with and differences from other religions, and describes the resurgence of Hindu extremism, the phenomenon of Bollywood and the Hindu diaspora.
Women have always been healers; they have helped each other through the birthing process, nursed the sick and wounded, and sought cures for illnesses and injuries. This book summarizes the lives of 240 significant or representative women who have engaged in the core professions of mid-wifery, nursing, and medicine (exclusive of psychiatry), and whose careers were primarily spent in the United States and Canada, from colonial times to the present. For the high school or college student, it will serve as an introduction to the lives of these healers; some students may be inspired to do further research on them or may be inspired to become healers themselves. Women's Studies scholars, biographers, and historians of science, medicine, or nursing, will find the biographies useful starting points for more in-depth research. Each biography provides references for further reading and study.
