Today's world is post-colonial and post-Cold War. These twin characteristics explain why international society is also riddled with the two major forms of injustice which Nancy Fraser identified as afflicting national societies. First, the economic and social disparities between states caused outcry in the 1950s when the first steps were taken towards decolonisation. These inequalities, to which a number of emerging states now contribute, are still glaring and still pose the problem of the gap between formal equality and true equality. Second, international society is increasingly confronted with culture- and identity-related claims, stretching the dividing line between equality and difference. The less-favoured states, those that feel stigmatised, but also native peoples, ethnic groups, minorities and women now aspire to both legal recognition of their equal dignity and the protection of their identities and cultures. Some even seek reparation for injustices arising from the past violation of their identities and the confiscation of their property or land. In answer to these two forms of claim, the subjects of international society have come up with two types of remedy encapsulated in legal rules: the law of development and the law of recognition. These two sets of rights are neither wholly autonomous and individualised branches of law nor formalised sets of rules. They are imperfect and have their dark side. Yet they can be seen as the first milestones towards what might become a fairer international society; one that is both equitable (as an answer to socio-economic injustice) and decent (as an answer to cultural injustice). This book explores this evolution in international society, setting it in historical perspective and examining its presuppositions and implications.

Genetics and traditional risk factors such as activity, diet, and tobacco use cannot reliably predict whether we stay healthy or become ill. What then are the primary predictors of adult-onset diabetes, heart attacks, stroke, and many other diseases? The social determinants of health provide the answer: these are the socio-economic conditions that shape the health of individuals, communities, and jurisdictions as a whole. Social determinants establish the extent to which Canadians possess the resources to identify and achieve personal aspirations, satisfy needs, and cope with the environment. This perspective is the key to understanding patterns of health and illness in Canada today. Uniting top academics and high profile experts from across the country, this contributed volume is a unique undertaking that combines analysis of the current state of the social determinants of health, with explication of their effects. The contributions take a public policy approach that sees the mainsprings of health emerging from the social distribution of resources. The collection as a whole integrates insights from the health sciences, the sociology of health, and the political economy of health. Critical areas of investigation: Aboriginal status early life, education, and literacy work and unemployment food security gender health care services housing income and its distribution social safety net social exclusion

Human Rights Of Older People

This book focuses on descriptions of the developments in legal frameworks and policies regarding the human rights of older persons. First, it covers the policies adopted and practices developed at the universal system, particularly within the sphere of the United Nations. Second, it includes a side-by-side comparison of the work of regional human rights mechanisms, which have picked up some momentum in the past decade. Through its inclusion of law, policy, and current processes, the widest net possible has been cast to collect a descriptive resource for advocates. Overall, we hope that this book contributes to a better understanding of the current limitations and possibilities that international institutions offer to uphold the human rights of older persons. We expect that this information will allow states and other policy makers to move forward with the international recognition of the human rights of older persons. We know this is only a first effort in compiling and reporting the standards that are being produced by different international institutions. But we have no doubt that many others will follow with their expert analysis of these emerging standards, and that the ongoing discussion will finally crystalize in international human rights binding instruments explicitly recognizing the universal rights of older persons.

​​​ Das Buch bietet eine verständliche Einführung in die videographische Methode. Es richtet sich an Forschende, die „natürliche“ Situationen mit der in ihnen stattfindenden Interaktion und Kommunikation mit Hilfe von Videodaten interpretativ untersuchen möchten. Der Band verschafft einen Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand der in den letzten Jahren aufgeblühten verschiedenen Verfahren der Videodatenanalyse. Dies dient als Hintergrund zur Bestimmung der methodologischen Prinzipien der Videographie als interpretativem Verfahren. Ausführlich wird anhand von Beispielen die fokussierte Ethnographie als Grundlage der Videographie dargestellt, ebenso wie die Videointeraktionsanalyse als Kernstück der Analyse videographisch erhobener Daten. Ausgehend von der Forschungserfahrung der Autoren werden methodische Forschungsschritte sowie praktische und technische Fragen und Probleme behandelt, die im Forschungsprozess auftreten. Der Band bietet außerdem einen Ausblick auf die theoretische Einbettung der Videographie im Rahmen der interpretativen Ansätze der Sozialforschung. Er ist mit ausführlichen Serviceteilen versehen, die weiterführende Literatur, technische Hinweise und exemplarische Studien enthalten.

The Elsevier’s project, Influenza: Complete Spectrum–I, under the aegis of ECAB Clinical Update, aims at a comprehensive, well-illustrated and state-of the-art survey of salient aspects of the age-old infectious disease, influenza, which is notorious for causing seasonal epidemics and, rarely, pandemics. A hallmark of influenza viruses is their ability to cause global worldwide epidemics affecting a great number of individuals, or pandemics. Pandemic episodes are solely attributed to influenza A viruses and they occur every 10–50 years. Today, it is clear that influenza cannot be eradicated, at least in the foreseeable future. We are therefore, condemned to live with it though with better preparedness and endeavor to cope with its onslaught. The book, Influenza: Complete Spectrum–I, deals with the fundamentals and allied matters concerning influenza.
