              Promiscuity in Western Literature (Hardback)

              Poet and novelist Charles Bukowski described promiscuity as feast and feast and feast. The promiscuous person is having fun, getting away with it, and showing no signs of stopping. More often, though, promiscuity has been seen as demonic, as the sign of an uncivilised race, or as... a symptom of mental disorder. Promiscuity in Western Literature capitalises on the fact that literature gives us deep and varied resources for reflecting on this controversial aspect of human behaviour. Drawing on authors from Homer to Margaret Atwood, it explores recurrent ideas and scenarios: Why does the literature of promiscuity evoke ideas of the animal? Why does it so often turn upon the image of the excessive woman? How and why does promiscuity feature in comic writing? How does the emergence of the modern city change representations of promiscuity? And, in the present day, what impact have ecological concerns had on the way writers depict promiscuity?

              The growth of the administrative state and legislative gridlock has placed the White House at the center of environmental policymaking. Every recent president has continued the trend of relying upon administrative tools and unilateral actions to either advance or roll back enviro...nmental protection policies. From natural resources to climate change and pollution control, presidents have more been willing to test the limits of their authority, and the role of Congress has been one of reacting to presidential initiatives. In The Administrative Presidency and the Environment: Policy Leadership and Retrenchment from Clinton to Trump, David M. Shafie draws upon staff communications, speeches and other primary sources. Key features include detailed case studies in public land management, water quality, toxics, and climate policy, with particular attention to the role of science in decisionmaking. Finally, he identifies the techniques from previous administrations that made Trump's administrative presidency possible. Shafie's combination of qualitative analysis and topical case studies offers advanced undergraduate students and researchers alike important insights for understanding the interactions between environmental groups and the executive branch as well as implications for future policymaking.

              The business world is at an important crossroads. The age of the stakeholder is rapidly superseding that of the shareholder as climate change and political and societal shifts upend years of seeming prosperity. To move past this agitated age, business and society must learn to le...ad sustainably by putting purpose on equal footing with profit. The first step is made by understanding what is meant by sustainability and how it offers an opportunity for both business and society. Inspired by the launch of the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals, the book captures the ideas of more than 100 thought leaders and change makers from around the world about how business is putting sustainability at the core of strategy and operations to survive, thrive, and realign its interests with society's. Leading Sustainably looks at how sustainability in a business context has evolved overtime and offers powerful insights, key facts, and guidance on building sustainability capability within companies, measuring and managing impact, understanding the transformation in sustainable innovation and finance, and other topics critical to better aligning businesses' core activities with sustainable principles. The book introduces five vignettes that profile best-in-class examples of companies that have been sustainable from the start and numerous case studies on business sustainability efforts around the world, spanning industries from hospitality to waste management, fashion to finance and more. Finally, Leading Sustainably provides frameworks and in-depth direction that firms can leverage when accelerating their transition to more sustainable business models. The book is a perfect guide for mid-level to senior managers who seek to understand this fast changing business environment, how to factor sustainability into their decision-making, and why the SDGs have changed everything.

              Leadership and the Ethics of Influence

              How do leaders influence others? Although they sometimes appeal directly to good reasons, which we associate with rational persuasion, leaders also use guilt, pressure, flattery, bullying, and rewards and punishment-all to get the behaviors that they want. Even when leaders refra...in from outright lying, they are nevertheless known to practice something approaching, perhaps reaching, the level of manipulation. Influence therefore presents a serious ethical problem across leadership contexts. Leadership and the Ethics of Influence argues that influence puts leaders at risk of using people. It is generally disrespectful of autonomy to figure out what makes people tick in an effort to handle them. In contrast with physical force, influence works through agency, not around it. Despite this feature of influence-and, to a large extent because of it-the everyday influence associated with leadership is often morally troublesome. What matters morally is not only whether agency is bypassed or overridden but also who is ultimately in control. This book uses philosophy and leadership studies to show how leaders across different contexts can be justified in getting followers to do things. Connecting moral theory to leadership theory, and especially to charismatic leadership, authentic leadership, transforming leadership, and ethical leadership, this book is essential reading for leadership scholars, students, and practitioners.

              Life and Suicide Following Brain Injury tells the story of Tom, a 43 year-old man who acquired a brain injury from a road traffic accident at the age of 22. Tom survived but went on to take his own life 20 years later. As a vulnerable adult with mental health issues and long-term... difficulties with substance misuse, this book tells Tom's story from his early childhood through to his death. In telling Tom's story, the author- a researcher in brain injury and Tom's sister- identifies the multiple suicide risk factors as well as the lack of understanding and inadequate service provision for people with complex needs following TBI. His story serves as a harrowing example of what can go wrong when timely intervention and support is not forthcoming, identifying a multitude of risk factors and possible points of intervention to improve care in the future. This book provides insight to professionals and academics across health and social care in the risks of suicide associated with TBI. It also provides support for those who have experienced the grief of losing a survivor to suicide, or those struggling to support a survivor who is suicidal.

              Rubrics offer concrete artefacts of what schools evaluate to be of merit, and what educators and schools value to be worth rewarding. Assessment Rubrics Decoded offers insights into a myriad of issues that affect, and are affected by, the construction of merit in students' learni...ng and the articulation of (underlying) educational ideologies in the assessment of student achievement. Designed for both students and teachers - who should have parity of involvement in developing and using rubrics - this book covers the problematic issues of assessment in schools at the same time as offering readers practical solutions for navigating the ensuing tensions and dilemmas. The notion that rubrics may hinder assessment transparency is also discussed, with examples, to warn against uncritical use of rubrics that may discipline rather than help learners. The perspective of a school leader in providing assessment leadership to rubrics usage across a school is included for extending awareness of rubrics beyond classroom contexts. This provides an informed approach for teachers to understand the stakes and complexities involved in judging learning, and learners, whilst offering concrete options and suggestions to consider. This book will be a valuable resource for classroom teachers, school leaders, teacher educators and researchers interested in the field of assessment rubrics.

              The role played by legal professionals in the laundering of criminal proceeds generated by others has become a priority concern for authorities at a national and international level. This ground-breaking book presents an in-depth empirical analysis of the nature of lawyers' invol...vement in the facilitation of money laundering, and its control through criminal justice and regulatory mechanisms. It is based on qualitative research combining analysis of cases of lawyers convicted of money laundering offences with interviews with criminal justice practitioners, members of professional and regulatory bodies, and practising solicitors, and analysis of relevant national and international legislative and regulatory frameworks. The book demonstrates the complex and diverse nature of lawyers' involvement in laundering activity, and shows that their actions and the decisions they take must be understood in relation to the specific situational contexts in which they occur. It provides significant new insights into the criminal justice and regulatory response to professional facilitation of money laundering in the UK, raising questions about the effectiveness and appropriateness of the response and the challenges involved. The book develops a framework for future research and analysis in this area, and proposes a range of potential strategies for controlling the facilitation of money laundering Lawyers and the Proceeds of Crime is essential reading for those researching money laundering, white-collar and organised crimes, and for practitioners and policy makers concerned with preventing the facilitation of money laundering.
