      Summary
      • This title explains the what, where and how of social anthropology and outlines new directions in research. More than 70 authors at the leading edge of the discipline contribute in depth essays on their research interests.
      • In two volumes, The SAGE Handbook of Social Anthropology is the definitive overview of contemporary research in the discipline. It explains the what, where, and how of current and anticipated work in social anthropology. With 80 authors, contributing more than 60 chapters, this is the most comprehensive and up-to-date statement of research available and the essential point of departure for future projects. The Handbook is divided into four sections: * Interfaces: examines social anthropology's disciplinary connections, from art and literature to politics and economics, from linguistics to biomedicine, from history to media studies * Places: examines place, region, culture, and history, from regional, area studies to a globalized world * Methods: examines issues of method; from archives to war zones, development projects to art objects, and from ethics to comparison * Futures: anticipates anthropologies to come: in the brain sciences, post-Development, the body and health, technologies and materialities Edited by the leading figures in social anthropology, the Handbook includes a substantive introduction by Richard Fardon, a think piece by Jean and John Comaroff, and a concluding last word on futures by Marilyn Strathern. The authors - each at the leading edge of the discipline - contribute in-depth chapters on both the foundational ideas and the latest research.
      • Review: This handbook valuably frames the perspectives of scholars whose commitment to empirical field research has established them as voices at once critical and authoritative, and who here tackle the discipline's compelling topical issues and anticipate its emergent. challenges Michael Herzfeld Harvard University This is a must have volume for scholars and students of anthropology alike. All the contributors are significant anthropologists in their field and they guide the reader brilliantly through the particular fields of their expertise. This is a book which covers both the enormous breadth of anthropology and the challenging ways it addresses critical issues of the contemporary world. Bruce Kapferer University of Bergen Cutting anthropology up into as many jig-saw pieces as possible is the counter-intuitive way the editors puzzle out a coherent and convincing picture of unity in the discipline today. Richard G. Fox President Emeritus, Wenner-Gren Foundation What the editors and contributors have achieved here is considerable. By taking the pulse of 'British social anthropology,' they have illustrated how unified and simultaneously how diversified anthropology has become. It is no longer divided simply by historical or geographic tradition (British versus American) but has grown into an exciting, mature, and introspective discipline that, perhaps most importantly of all, has had profound and beneficial effects on other disciplines while being profoundly and beneficially affected by them. It is gratifying to see how much anthropology has to offer and that scholars and professionals outside anthropology have begun to welcome that offer. Jack David Eller Anthropology Review Database

      Summary
      • '...a welcome addition to the already available introductory works on Islam. The chapters of the book combine depth of analysis and erudition on a wide range of subjects. Thus in a single volume one finds several superbly written papers not only on the foundations of Islam and the manifestations of Islamic culture but also on issues which are at the centre of contemporary debates among Muslims such as multiculturalism, social justice, democracy and diversity. As a sourcebook this work is equally useful for students, academicians and general readers' - Zafar Ishaq Ansari, Director, Islamic Research Institute, International Islamic University Islamic Studies is at a critical moment in its history. It seeks both to maintain its rich history and to engage with other - sometimes dominant - cultural and political studies. This tension is producing complex changes in both the theory and the practice of Islamic Studies. This timely and stimulating Handbook, edited by world-class experts in the field, provides a comprehensive guide to Islamic Studies today. It examines the main issues in the field and explores the key debates. It provides readers with an indispensable, balanced guide to the roots of Islam and the challenges it faces in the twenty-first century. The Handbook includes discussions of: - Islam as a community of discourse and a global system - Islam, diaspora and multiculturalism - The Qu'ran today - Islam as a moral and judicial system - Islam and politics - Islam and culture - Diversities and Islam Concise, level-headed and penetrating, this collection will be of interest to anyone who studies contemporary Islam. It brings together an unparalleled collection of international scholars who illuminate some of the most urgent and complex issues in the world today.

      Summary
      • The original Handbook of Public Administration was a landmark publication, the first to provide a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the discipline. The eagerly-awaited new edition of this seminal international handbook continues to provide a complete review and guide to past and present knowledge in this essential field of inquiry. Assembling an outstanding team of scholars from around the world, the second edition explores the current state-of-the-art in academic thinking and the current structures and processes for the administration of public policy. The second edition has been fully revised and updated, with new chapters that reflect emerging issues and changes within the public sector: - Identifying the Antecedents in Public Performance - Bureaucratic Politics - Strategy Structure and Policy Dynamics - Comparative Administrative Reform - Administrative Ethics - Accountability through Market and Social Instruments - Federalism and intergovernmental coordination. A dominant theme throughout the handbook is a critical reflection on the utility of scholarly theory and the extent to which government practices inform the development of this theory. To this end it serves as an essential guide for both the practice of public administration today and its on-going development as an academic discipline. The SAGE Handbook of Public Administration remains indispensable to the teaching, study and practice of public administration for students, academics and professionals everywhere.
      • Review: 'Guy Peters and Jon Pierre are rightly regarded as leading figures in the area, but even that does not guarantee the striking breadth reflected in the company of contributors: this quality may be because the 14 separate areas covered in the volume are 'franchised' to separate expert (and geographically scattered) 'part editors' to coordinate and discuss entries. There is in consequence a similarly striking breath to the field reviewed. The title is somewhat 'retro' as the intellectual tradition is again reclaimed from policymaking, public sector management and other competing perspectives that have emerged. But while the label may be traditional, the content undermines any negatives associations that implies' - Grant Jordan Emeritus Professor of Politics, the University of Aberdeen 'If you are interested in a comprehensive yet compact and accessible account of current scholarly work on public sector organizations, this is the volume to have at hand. For this Handbook is not only a masterly and authoritatively selected collection of brilliant contributions, it also serves - interdisciplinary and comparative in outlook as it is - as a much needed cross-fertilizer between subfields of the public administration community' - Eckhard Schroeter Professor of Administrative Sciences, Zeppelin University 'Guy Peters and Jon Pierre and their colleagues have made an already essential handbook even more essential for students of public administration. New chapters on subjects such as administrative history, bureaucratic politics, representative bureaucracy, and intergovernmental relations add to the other excellent pieces to make for a magnificently comprehensive volume. Anyone interested in the administration of the contemporary state will want to read this volume and to have a copy of it at hand' - Joel Aberbach Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, UCLA

      Summary
      • 'This handbook thoroughly covers all aspects of evaluation, yet isn't too technical to understand. It offers everything an organization needs to know to get the most out of evaluation' - Nonprofit World 'The Handbook succeeds in capturing and presenting evaluation's extensive knowledge base within a global context. In so doing it provides a useful, coherent and definitive benchmark on the field's diverse and dynamic purposes, practices, theories, approaches, issues, and challenges for the 21st century. The Handbook is an essential reference and map for any serious evaluation practitioner, scholar and student anywhere in the world' - Michael Quinn Patton, author of Utilization-Focused Evaluation 'Readers of this volume will find a set of texts that provide an evocative overview of contemporary thinking in the world of evaluation. This is not a book of simple tips. It does justice to the complex realities of evaluation practice by bringing together some of the best practitioners in the world to reflect on its current state. It is theoretically sophisticated yet eminently readable, anchored in evaluation as it is undertaken in a variety of domains. It is the kind of book that startles a little and makes you think. I highly recommend it' - Murray Saunders, University of Lancaster In this comprehensive handbook, an examination of the complexities of contemporary evaluation contributes to the ongoing dialogue that arises in professional efforts to evaluate people-related programs, policies and practices. The SAGE Handbook of Evaluation is a unique and authoritative resource consisting of 25 chapters covering a range of evaluation theories and techniques in a single, accessible volume. With contributions from world-leading figures in their fields overseen by an eminent international editorial board, this handbook is an extensive and user-friendly resource organised in four coherent sections: " Role and Purpose of Evaluation in Society; " Evaluation as a Social Practice; " The Practice of Evaluation; " Domains of Evaluation Practice. The Handbook of Evaluation is written for practicing evaluators, academics, advanced postgraduate students and evaluation clients and offers a definitive, benchmark statement on evaluation theory and practice for the first decades of the 21st century.

Readers in the evaluation community should find many of the essays stimulating and rewarding. Evaluation Journal of Australasia

      Summary
      • Ten years ago, critical theory and postmodernism were considered new and emerging theories in business and management. What will be the next new important theories to shape the field? In one edited volume, Daved Barry and Hans Hansen have commissioned new chapters that will allow readers to stay one step ahead of the latest thinking. Contributors draw on research and practice to introduce ideas that are considered 'fringe' and controversial today, but may be key theoretical contributions tomorrow. Each chapter sets these ideas in their historical context, lays out the key theoretical positions taken by each new approach and makes it clear why these approaches are different to more mainstream concepts. Throughout, contributors refer to existing studies that show how these developing themes will change the business and management arena. Researchers, teachers and advanced students who are interested in the future of Business and Management scholarship will want to read this Handbook.

      Summary
      • The research and debates surrounding curriculum, pedagogy and assessment are ever-growing and are of constant importance around the globe. With two volumes - containing chapters from highly respected researchers, whose work has been critical to understanding and building expertise in the field - The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment focuses on examining how curriculum is treated and developed, and its impact on pedagogy and assessment worldwide. The Handbook is organised into five thematic sections, considering: * The epistemology and methodology of curriculum * Curriculum and pedagogy * Curriculum subjects * Areas of the curriculum * Assessment and the curriculum * The curriculum and educational policy The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment's breadth and rigour will make it essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students around the world.
      • Review: Curriculum, pedagogy and assessment are the gearbox, carburetor and battery of education: deeply embedded in programmes of reform and teacher practices alike. This collection strips down the engine room of education, drawing papers of exceptional range and breadth to provide a profound understanding of how education, at every level and in every setting actually operates. Drawing together the broadest contributors range of contributors, this collection will be a seminal text for teachers, academics and policy makers for years to come. -- Chris Husbands The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment is an indispensable reference source for all researchers in education whose work focuses on the three message systems of schooling, namely curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. It is encyclopedic and intelligent in its coverage of theory and research in curriculum studies. Indeed, the Handbook contributes in no small way to the welcomed renaissance in this field of educational research. -- Bob Lingard Only a work of this size and scope could begin to do justice to the central importance for education of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, and their deep interrelationships in diverse sociocultural contexts. This SAGE Handbook manages to be comprehensive without glossing over the contested nature of the issues. It will be a seminal resource for years to come. -- Mary James

      Summary
      • Grounded Theory is by far the most widely used research method across a wide range of disciplines and subject areas, including social sciences, nursing and healthcare, medical sociology, information systems, psychology, and anthropology. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of Grounded Theory, taking into account the many attempts to revise and refine Glaser and Strauss' original formulation and the debates that have followed. Antony Bryant & Kathy Charmaz bring together leading researchers and practitioners of the method from the US, the UK, Australia and Europe to represent all the major standpoints within Grounded Theory, demonstrating the richness of the approach. The contributions cover a wide range of perspectives on the method, covering its features and ramifications, its intricacies in use, its demands on the skills and capabilities of the researcher and its position in the domain of research methods. The SAGE Handbook of Grounded Theory is an indispensable reference source for academics and researchers across many disciplines who want to develop their understanding of the Grounded Theory method.
      • Review: Tony Bryant and Kathy Charmaz are the perfect editors for this excellent and forward looking Handbook which is surely destined to be a classic David Silverman Professor Emeritus, Goldsmiths College For anyone interested in grounded theory this is a must have book. No longer will students have to search the library or internet to find authoritative voices on a variety of topics. It's all right there at their fingertips Juliet Corbin San Jose State University In my experience of supervising and examining masters and doctoral students in the social sciences over three decades, a very large proportion of them use or claim to use grounded theory in some form or other. It appears to be the stock method of social science research and accepted without question by most university teachers and authorities (let alone students) in this field...This Handbook, at over 600 pages long, with 27 chapters (in addition to the chapter length Introduction) by more than 30 contributors, offers a vast amount of material upon which to consider some fundamental issues...There is a very useful 'Discursive Glossary of Terms' and (what a gem!) a thorough and detailed index John Pratt Higher Education Review The Sage Handbook of Grounded Theory constitutes a fascinating col-lection, and the containment of each chapter makes it very amenable to 'occasional dips'...as a cornucopia of ideas in to the world of grounded theory (which is, apparently, the most frequently-cited analytical approach in qualitative research publications), this volume is unsurpassed Amanda Holt Qualitative Research

      Summary
      • This handbook brings together new work by some of the leading authorities on citizenship education, and is divided into five sections. The first section deals with key ideas about citizenship education including democracy, rights, globalization and equity. Section two contains a wide range of national case studies of citizenship education including African, Asian, Australian, European and North and South American examples. The third section focuses on perspectives about citizenship education with discussions about key areas such as sustainable development, anti-racism, gender. Section four provides insights into different characterisations of citizenship education with illustrations of democratic schools, peace and conflict education, global education, human rights education etc. The final section provides a series of chapters on the pedagogy of citizenship education with discussions about curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment.
      • Review: "The volume is unique...it has the character of an international collaboration focused on concepts and issues. The authors go beyond slogans or accepted truisms to grapple with issues that are contested but benefit from being addressed from different viewpoints. I commend the volume to a wide range of readers for its breadth of vision and success in moving the field forward."

      Summary
      • 'In their introduction to this Handbook, the editors affirm: 'Many sociologists have come to realise that it makes no sense now to omit religion from the repertoire of social scientific explanations of social life'. I wholeheartedly agree. I also suggest that this wide-ranging set of essays should become a starting-point for such enquiries. Each chapter is clear, comprehensive and well-structured - making the Handbook a real asset for all those engaged in the field' - Grace Davie, Professor of Sociology, University of Exeter, UK 'In the last two decades the sociology of religion has experienced an intellectual renaissance. The old paradigm of secularization has been replaced with new theories and methods recognising the importance of religion in modern society. The new topics include women and spirituality, violence and power, globalization and glocalization, fundamentalism, identity and life course, spiritual markets and rational choice theory. The Handbook for the Sociology of Religion not only reflects but develops and extends this renaissance.Not so much a handbook but an intellectual feast' - Bryan Turner, National University of Singapore 'Serious social scientists who care about making sense of the world can no longer ignore the fact that religious beliefs and practices are an important part of this world. Nor can scholars claim to understand religion by adding a couple of variables to their models, anymore than they could understand race, gender, or social class this way. This Handbook is a valuable resource for specialists and amateurs alike. The editors have done an exceptionally fine job of incorporating topics that illuminate the range and diversity of religion and its continuing significance throughout the world' - Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University At a time when religions are increasingly affecting, and affected by, life beyond the narrowly sacred sphere, religion everywhere seems to be caught up in change and conflict. In the midst of this contention and confusion, the sociology of religion provides a rich source of understanding and explanation. This Handbook presents an unprecedentedly comprehensive assessment of the field, both where it has been and where it is headed.Like its many distinguished contributors, its topics and their coverage are truly global in their reach. The Handbook's 35 chapters are organized into eight sections: basic theories and debates; methods of studying religion; social forms and experiences of religion; issues of power and control in religious organizations; religion and politics; individual religious behaviour in social context; religion, self-identity and the life-course; and case studies of China, Eastern Europe, Israel, Japan, and Mexico. Each chapter establishes benchmarks for the state of sociological thinking about religion in the 21st century and provides a rich bibliography for pursuing its subject further. Overall, the Handbook stretches the field conceptually, methodologically, comparatively, and historically. It promises to be an indispensable source of guidance and insight for both students and scholars for years to come.
      • Review: "The handbook achieves an admirable synthesis of important efforts and will be particularly helpful as a means to orient beginning students in the sociology of religion." -- CHOICE 20081020

      Summary
      • This handbook is the first to provide comprehensive, up-to-the-minute coverage of contemporary and developing Internet and online social research methods, spanning both quantitative and qualitative research applications. The editors have brought together leading names in the field of online research to give a thoroughly up to date, practical coverage, richly illustrated with examples. The chapters cover both methodological and procedural themes, offering readers a sophisticated treatment of the practice and uses of Internet and online research that is grounded in the principles of research methodology. Beginning with an examination of the significance of the Internet as a research medium, the book goes on to cover research design, data capture, online surveys, virtual ethnography, and the internet as an archival resource, and concludes by looking at potential directions for the future of Internet and online research. The SAGE Handbook of Internet and Online Research Methods will be welcomed by anyone interested in the contemporary practice of computer-mediated research and scholarship. Postgraduates, researchers and methodologists from disciplines across the social sciences will find this an invaluable source of reference.

      Summary
      • In recent years there has been increasingly vigorous debate about the nature and purpose of special education, and what might be considered the appropriate responses to pupils who experience difficulties in learning. This Handbook brings together the most up to date knowledge of this area and will serve as the major source book of authoritative information and ideas about current and future directions for special education. It examines the intricate relation between theory, research and practice, and places a particular emphasis on what has been learned about providing for students who experience difficulties in learning, how these understandings can contribute to new conceptualisations of special education and the development of more inclusive schools. This comprehensive, research-based work, brings together scholarship on an international level, and covers topics that transcend national boundaries. It will become essential reading for all professionals and academics with any interest in this important and dynamic field.
      • Review: '[T]his book provides an excellent overview of special education, which will be a valuable resource for teachers, school managers and administrators, parents and indeed anyone with an interest in the development of provision for pupils with special educational needs. It is also likely to be an invaluable source book for researchers and postgraduate students alike' - REACH 'The Handbook offers a range of views on how to empower all learners to transcend their current performance and go "beyond the limits"' - Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology 'This text makes an important contribution to special education. Perhaps, more significantly, it makes an important contribution to inclusive education, and possibly, even more widely, to education in general...it is a book that has significance for all of us who wish to move education towards a more equitable, democratic, humane, and dignified system for our young people' - Education in the North "Readers need to have a solid knowledge base of the field to fully appreciate the information presented both in terms of scholarly depth and differing perspectives. Although a challenging read, it is enlightening and well worth the effort." -- R. Ludy CHOICE 20070905 "The students love it. It is expanding the way we think about Special Education [...]. We are "going global" in our thinking!" -- Dr. Crystal K. Whitlow 20090225 "The book is terrific. I am really impressed with the wide selection of people [...] pulled together and the diverse perspectives [...] included." -- Dr. Marcia H. Rioux 20090225 "I think it would be an excellent text for a graduate seminar that would focus on helping students to see both general and special education from evidence-based instructional practices, cultural commonalities/differences, and across the lifespan. It is a one-of-a-kind book in that lays a strong foundation across all of the above areas and will motivate students to look further and in more depth at areas of interest within the field for further study." -- Michael Hardman 20090309

      Summary
      • "The SAGE Handbook of Social Research Methods" is a must for every social-science researcher. It charts the new and evolving terrain of social research methodology, covering qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods in one volume. The Handbook includes chapters on each phase of the research process: research design, methods of data collection, and the processes of analyzing and interpreting data. The volume maintains that there is much more to research than learning skills and techniques; methodology involves the fit between theory, research questions research design and analysis.The book also includes several chapters that describe historical and current directions in social research, debating crucial subjects such as qualitative versus quantitative paradigms, how to judge the credibility of types of research, and the increasingly topical issue of research ethics. The Handbook serves as an invaluable resource for approaching research with an open mind. This volume maps the field of social research methods using an approach that will prove valuable for both students and researchers.

      Summary
      • "The SAGE Handbook of Environmental Change" is an extensive survey of the interdisciplinary science of environmental change, including recent debates on climate change and the full range of other natural and anthropogenic changes affecting the Earth-ocean-atmosphere system in the past, present and future. It examines the historic importance, present status and future prospects of the field over two volumes. With more than 40 chapters, the books situate the defining characteristics and key paradigms within a state-of-the-art review of the field, including its changing nature and diversity of approaches, evidence base, key theoretical arguments, resonances with other disciplines and relationships between theory, research and practice. Opening with a detailed, contextualizing essay by the editors, the work is arranged into six parts: Part One: Approaches to Understanding Environmental Change; Part Two: Evidence of Environmental Change and the Geo-ecological Response; Part Three: Causes, Mechanisms and Dynamics of Environmental Change; Part Four: Key Issues of Human-induced Environmental Changes and Their Impacts; Part Five: Patterns, Processes and Impacts of Environmental Change at the Regional Scale; and, Part Six: Responses of People to Environmental Change and Implications for Society. Global in its coverage, scientific and theoretical in its approach, the books bring together an international set of respected editors and contributors to provide an exciting, timely addition to the literature on climate change. With the subjects' interdisciplinary framework, this book will appeal to academics, researchers, postgraduates and practitioners in a variety of disciplines including, geography, geology, ecology, environmental science, archaeology, anthropology, politics and sociology.

      Summary
      • "Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways." - Peter Dicken, University of Manchester "Stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre." - Sallie A. Marston, University of Arizona "Captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit...This is a stand-out among handbooks!" - Lily Kong, National University of Singapore "This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns." - Alexander B. Murphy, University of Oregon "This SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography ...essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." - Eric Sheppard, UCLA Published in association with the journal Progress in Human Geography, edited and written by the principal scholars in the discipline, this Handbook demonstrates the difference that thinking about the world geographically makes. Each section considers how human geography shapes the world, interrogates it, and intervenes in it. It includes a major retrospective and prospective introductory essay, with three substantive sections on: * Imagining Human Geographies * Practising Human Geographies * Living Human Geographies The Handbook also has an innovative multimedia component of conversations about key issues in human geography -- as well as an overview of human geography from the Editors. A key reference for any scholar interested in questions about what difference it makes to think spatially or geographically about the world, this Handbook is a rich and textured statement about the geographical imagination.
      • Review: This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns. The result is a set of reflections that highlights the richness and insight of contemporary human geographical thinking. The book challenges readers to think in new ways and to recognize the sophistication, reach, and possibility of human geographic inquiry. -- Alexander B. Murphy Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways. Full of surprises and unexpected diversions. It truly epitomises 'progress' in human geography. -- Peter Dicken While geography as a discipline has recently experienced a proliferation of handbooks, compendia, dictionaries and encyclopedias, the Handbook of Human Geography stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre. Collected here are not the usual broad overviews, but a more penetrating set of pieces that treat not so much the "what" of human geography but the "how"; that is, it asks the reader to deliberate on the key practices in which human geographers are engaged and their central relevance not only to comprehend but also to intervene in and transform worlds. -- Sallie A. Marston This will be an incredibly useful resource for all those interested in what it means to imagine, think and act geographically. The Handbook captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit, highlighting the significance of geography in contributing to an understanding of these worlds and in shaping everyday practice. At the same time, the editors and authors emphasise and explore the relations between human geography and other disciplines and invite debates on these boundaries. All readers, whatever their disciplinary backgrounds, will find much to stimulate their thinking, and will appreciate the breadth of insight. This is a stand-out among handbooks! -- Lily Kong, Professor of Geography "Notwithstanding the flood of handbooks and companions that has beset the discipline, this SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography. Its focus--on keywords, rather than the usual sub-disciplinary categories; on thinking and acting geographically, rather than on bounding a discipline; on engaging across the breadth of human geography, within not just between contributions; and on praxis, in ways that exceed the conventional academic predilections-has generated essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." -- Eric Sheppard

      Summary
      • Over the past twenty years research on the evolving relationship between GIS and Society has been expanding into a wide variety of topical areas, becoming in the process an increasingly challenging and multifaceted endeavour. The SAGE Handbook of GIS and Society is a retrospective and prospective overview of GIS and Society research that provides an expansive and critical assessment of work in that field. Emphasizing the theoretical, methodological and substantive diversity within GIS and Society research, the book highlights the distinctiveness and intellectual coherence of the subject as a field of study, while also examining its resonances with and between key themes, and among disciplines ranging from geography and computer science to sociology, anthropology, and the health and environmental sciences. Comprising 27 chapters, often with an international focus, the book is organized into six sections: * Foundations of Geographic Information and Society * Geographical Information and Modern Life * Alternative Representations of Geographic Information and Society * Organizations and Institutions * Participation and Community Issues * Value, Fairness, and Privacy Aimed at academics, researchers, postgraduates, and GIS practitioners, this Handbook will be the basic reference for any inquiry applying Geographical Information Science to societal issues.
      • Review: The wide ranging contributions to this very important volume demonstrate how success in using GIS to understand society is intimately linked to society's understanding of GIS. Tim Nyerges, Helen Couclelis and Bob McMaster have created the definitive guide to a technology that succeeds or fails depending upon our ability to accommodate societal context and structures. This handbook is lucid, integrative, comprehensive and, above all, prescient in its interpretation of GIS implementation as a societal process. -- Paul Longley This is truly a handbook - a book you will want to keep on hand for frequent reference and to which GIS professors should direct students entering our field... Selection of a few of the chapters for individual attention is difficult because each one contributes meaningfully to the overall message of this volume. The SAGE Handbook of GIS and Society is an important collection of articles that will set the tone for the next two decades of discourse and research about GIS and society. -- Journal of Geographical Analysis From a broader perspective, the various approaches, topics and applications presented in the book effectively clarify how the spatial dimension helps us to understand social phenomena as a reflection of social relations but also as an integral component of those relations. Its chapters illustrate how geospatial technologies mediate between space and society while shedding light on classic debates conducted in social theory and human geography about the spatial dimension's role in social processes. I highly recommend this book to students, scholars and the general public. -- Itzhak Omer The editors have assembled an admirable set of contributions which demonstrate the use of geospatial technologies in a wide range of application areas and have drawn on these case studies to highlight approaches that should contribute to addressing such concerns and thus help meet such laudable (if ambitious) aspirations. -- Gary Higgs

      Summary
      • Social Research is a bourgeoning field. Of course it has many traditions and approaches, but there is a high premium upon thinking differently and thinking anew because social life is never static or wholly predictable. The Handbook, edited by internationally recognized scholars, provides a comprehensive, pitch-perfect critical assessment of the field. The main features of the Handbook are: - Clear organization into 4 parts dealing with The Social Context of Research; Design and Data Collection; Integrating The Analysis of New Data Types; Sampling, Inference and Measurement - Clear, cutting edge chapters on Objectivity; Causation; Organizing Social Research; Correspondence Analysis; Grounded Theory; Conversational Surveys; Mixed Methods; Meta-Analysis; Optimal Matching Analysis; GIS Analysis; Quantitative Narrative Analysis; Longitudinal Studies; SEM; MLM; Qualitative Comparative Analysis; Respondent Driven Sampling - Brings together a glittering assembly of the key figures working in the field of Methods today - Demonstrates the continuities and productive tensions between classical traditions and real world research today The result is a superbly organized text which will be required reading for anyone interested in the routes and future of social research. It is an unparalleled teaching resource and a 'must have' for serious social researchers.
      • Review: 'This book speaks to researchers across the social sciences, irrespective of their methodological persuasion. It brings fresh new perspectives to some of the core concerns of social science research methods; it challenges conventions and accepted wisdoms and provides pointers to an exciting future. The editors have produced a collection of papers that bring together some of the most original and innovative thinking about research methods. The chapters run the gamut of the research process whilst moving seamlessly across methodological boundaries. The book provides new ways of thinking about research and new ways of doing research, providing the reader with valuable pointers to their own research' - Angela Dale, Professor of Quantitative Social Research, the University of Manchester, UK

      Summary
      • This handbook asks the central question, 'What does it mean and what difference does it make to imagine, think and act geographically in the world?' It explores how human geography is essential to the understanding of, and active engagements in, the human and non-human worlds.
      • "Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways." - Peter Dicken, University of Manchester "Stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre." - Sallie A. Marston, University of Arizona "Captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit...This is a stand-out among handbooks!" - Lily Kong, National University of Singapore "This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns." - Alexander B. Murphy, University of Oregon "This SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography ...essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." - Eric Sheppard, UCLA Published in association with the journal Progress in Human Geography, edited and written by the principal scholars in the discipline, this Handbook demonstrates the difference that thinking about the world geographically makes. Each section considers how human geography shapes the world, interrogates it, and intervenes in it. It includes a major retrospective and prospective introductory essay, with three substantive sections on: * Imagining Human Geographies * Practising Human Geographies * Living Human Geographies The Handbook also has an innovative multimedia component of conversations about key issues in human geography -- as well as an overview of human geography from the Editors. A key reference for any scholar interested in questions about what difference it makes to think spatially or geographically about the world, this Handbook is a rich and textured statement about the geographical imagination.
      • Review: This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns. The result is a set of reflections that highlights the richness and insight of contemporary human geographical thinking. The book challenges readers to think in new ways and to recognize the sophistication, reach, and possibility of human geographic inquiry. -- Alexander B. Murphy Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways. Full of surprises and unexpected diversions. It truly epitomises 'progress' in human geography. -- Peter Dicken While geography as a discipline has recently experienced a proliferation of handbooks, compendia, dictionaries and encyclopedias, the Handbook of Human Geography stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre. Collected here are not the usual broad overviews, but a more penetrating set of pieces that treat not so much the "what" of human geography but the "how"; that is, it asks the reader to deliberate on the key practices in which human geographers are engaged and their central relevance not only to comprehend but also to intervene in and transform worlds. -- Sallie A. Marston This will be an incredibly useful resource for all those interested in what it means to imagine, think and act geographically. The Handbook captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit, highlighting the significance of geography in contributing to an understanding of these worlds and in shaping everyday practice. At the same time, the editors and authors emphasise and explore the relations between human geography and other disciplines and invite debates on these boundaries. All readers, whatever their disciplinary backgrounds, will find much to stimulate their thinking, and will appreciate the breadth of insight. This is a stand-out among handbooks! -- Lily Kong, Professor of Geography "Notwithstanding the flood of handbooks and companions that has beset the discipline, this SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography. Its focus--on keywords, rather than the usual sub-disciplinary categories; on thinking and acting geographically, rather than on bounding a discipline; on engaging across the breadth of human geography, within not just between contributions; and on praxis, in ways that exceed the conventional academic predilections-has generated essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." -- Eric Sheppard

      Summary
      • "The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition", the first volume of the paperback versions of the "The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research, Third Edition", takes a look at the field from a broadly theoretical perspective, and is composed of the Handbook's Parts I ("Locating the Field), II ("Major Paradigms and Perspectives"), and VI ("The Future of Qualitative Research"). "The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition" attempts to put the field of qualitative research in context. Part I provides background on the field, starting with history, then action research and the academy, and the politics and ethics of qualitative research. Part II isolates what we regard as the major historical and contemporary paradigms now structuring and influencing qualitative research in the human disciplines.The chapters move from competing paradigms (positivist, post positivist, constructivist, critical theory) to specific interpretive perspectives, feminisms, racialized discourses, cultural studies, sexualities, and queer theory. Part III considers the future of qualitative research.This edition contains a new Reader's Guide prepared by the editors that helps students and researchers navigate through the chapters, locating the different methodologies, methods, techniques, issues, and theories relevant to their work. It presents an abbreviated Glossary of terms that offer students and researchers a ready resource to help decode the language of qualitative research. It offers recommended Readings that provide readers with additional sources on specific topic areas linked to their research. This text is designed for graduate students taking classes in social research methods and qualitative methods as well as researchers throughout the social sciences and in some fields within the humanities.

      • This title explains the what, where and how of social anthropology and outlines new directions in research. More than 70 authors at the leading edge of the discipline contribute in depth essays on their research interests.
      • In two volumes, The SAGE Handbook of Social Anthropology is the definitive overview of contemporary research in the discipline. It explains the what, where, and how of current and anticipated work in social anthropology. With 80 authors, contributing more than 60 chapters, this is the most comprehensive and up-to-date statement of research available and the essential point of departure for future projects. The Handbook is divided into four sections: * Interfaces: examines social anthropology's disciplinary connections, from art and literature to politics and economics, from linguistics to biomedicine, from history to media studies * Places: examines place, region, culture, and history, from regional, area studies to a globalized world * Methods: examines issues of method; from archives to war zones, development projects to art objects, and from ethics to comparison * Futures: anticipates anthropologies to come: in the brain sciences, post-Development, the body and health, technologies and materialities Edited by the leading figures in social anthropology, the Handbook includes a substantive introduction by Richard Fardon, a think piece by Jean and John Comaroff, and a concluding last word on futures by Marilyn Strathern. The authors - each at the leading edge of the discipline - contribute in-depth chapters on both the foundational ideas and the latest research.
      • Review: This handbook valuably frames the perspectives of scholars whose commitment to empirical field research has established them as voices at once critical and authoritative, and who here tackle the discipline's compelling topical issues and anticipate its emergent. challenges Michael Herzfeld Harvard University This is a must have volume for scholars and students of anthropology alike. All the contributors are significant anthropologists in their field and they guide the reader brilliantly through the particular fields of their expertise. This is a book which covers both the enormous breadth of anthropology and the challenging ways it addresses critical issues of the contemporary world. Bruce Kapferer University of Bergen Cutting anthropology up into as many jig-saw pieces as possible is the counter-intuitive way the editors puzzle out a coherent and convincing picture of unity in the discipline today. Richard G. Fox President Emeritus, Wenner-Gren Foundation What the editors and contributors have achieved here is considerable. By taking the pulse of 'British social anthropology,' they have illustrated how unified and simultaneously how diversified anthropology has become. It is no longer divided simply by historical or geographic tradition (British versus American) but has grown into an exciting, mature, and introspective discipline that, perhaps most importantly of all, has had profound and beneficial effects on other disciplines while being profoundly and beneficially affected by them. It is gratifying to see how much anthropology has to offer and that scholars and professionals outside anthropology have begun to welcome that offer. Jack David Eller Anthropology Review Database

      Summary
      • During the last two decades the study of European foreign policy has experienced remarkable growth, presumably reflecting a more significant international role of the European Union. The Union has significantly expanded its policy portfolio and though empty symbolic politics still exists, the Union's international relations have become more substantial and its foreign policy more focused. European foreign policy has become a dynamic policy area, being adapted to changing challenges and environments, such as the Arab Spring, new emerging economies/powers; the crisis of multilateralism and much more. This title is a major reference work for Foreign Policy Programmes around the world. The Handbook is designed to be accessible to graduate and postgraduate students in a wide variety of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. Both volumes are structured to address areas of critical concern to scholars at the cutting edge of all major dimensions of foreign policy.0.

The SAGE Handbook of European Foreign Policy, Two-Volume set, is a major reference work for Foreign Policy Programmes around the world. The Handbook is designed to be accessible to graduate and postgraduate students in a wide variety of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. Both volumes are structured to address areas of critical concern to scholars at the cutting edge of all major dimensions of foreign policy. The volumes are composed of original chapters written specifically to the following themes: * Research traditions and historical experience * Theoretical perspectives * EU actors * State actors * Societal actors * The politics of European foreign policy * Bilateral relations * Relations with multilateral institutions * Individual policies * Transnational challenges The Handbook will be an essential reference for both advanced students and scholars.
      • Review: An ambitious and comprehensive tour de table of the essential topics in EU foreign policy by leading European scholars. The Handbook reflects the importance of understanding the full range of EU foreign policy at a time of uncertainty in the direction of European political integration. It is destined to take a prominent place on the bookshelves of libraries, research institutes, and academic departments across the world. -- Roy H. Ginsberg The Sage Handbook of European Foreign Policy provides a comprehensive overview of the literature on the development and practice of European Union foreign policy, with contributions from the leading scholars in the field. It takes an impressively wide scope, encompassing topics that have been extensively debated in the literature as well as newer areas of research including the role of national parliaments, the news media, and think tanks in European foreign policy making. It also gives readers a good understanding of the external challenges the EU now faces, from dealing with 'rising powers' to confronting terrorism. An indispensable resource for students and scholars of European foreign policy. -- Karen E. Smith If you are looking for the layouts of the research front of this amorphous theme, this is it. -- Iver Neumann Handbooks are supposed to provide comprehensive and authoritative overviews of a particular subject matter. This one is the most wide-ranging and most competent treatment of all conceivable aspects of European Foreign Policy yet to be published. By transcending traditional (sub-) disciplinary dividing lines and by systematically rearranging the material via different cuts it both broadens and deepens our knowledge of what is still a historical experiment. -- Gunther Hellman Thorough and thoughtful, comprehensive and detailed, wide-ranging and scholarly. This remarkable collection takes stock and provides a most valuable overview of the study of EU foreign policy. Its analytic breadth and scope will establish this Handbook as an essential reference and the basis for further research for students and scholars in the field for years to come. A superb editorial achievement. -- Ulrich Krotz
