Эта книга – популярное и неформальное изложение социокультурного подхода к образованию. Школа, укоренённая в исторической традиции, включённая в современный контекст жизни и соединяющая с ним проекты, надежды, нацеленные в будущее – такова сквозная тема книги. Автора интересует школа, взятая не сама по себе, со своими методиками и режимами, а вписанная в пространство – двора, города, села, мироздания. Школа в культуре и истории, в координатах родины и космополитизма – или иначе, в социокультурном измерении. Автор книги – А. М. Цирульников – известный учёный и писатель, академик Российской Академии образования.

Over the course of six sections, this rich reference book explores the various areas of Qur’anic studies: its language,the history of its documentation,its many disciplines,the methods of interpretation,its inimitability,and finally, as a work of art.The themes explored also include the impact of the Qur’an on Islamic civilisation, as well as the various classical sub-disciplines of Qur’anic studies, including the study of the variant readings (qirā’āt), the reasons for revelation (asbāb al-nuzūl), and abrogation (naskh). Unlike some other works, Prof Zarzour also explores contemporary scholarship on the Qur’an, notably through a critical evaluation of modern tendencies such as the claim that the Qur’an contains scientific miracles, and an evaluation of some of the most recognised modern works of Qur’anic commentary (tafsir).

Stately oaks, ivy-covered walls, the opposite sex — these are the things that likely come to mind for most Americans when they think about the «nature» of college. But the real nature of college is hidden in plain sight: it’s flowing out of the keg, it’s woven into the mascots on our T-shirts. Engaging in a deep and richly entertaining study of «campus ecology,» The Nature of College explores one day in the life of the average student, questioning what «natural» is and what «common sense» is really good for and weighing the collective impacts of the everyday. In the end, this fascinating, highly original book rediscovers and repurposes the great and timeless opportunity presented by college: to study the American way of life, and to develop a more sustainable, better way to live.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, is one of the most controversial forms of social welfare in the United States. Although it&rsquo;s commonly believed that such federal programs have been cut back since the 1980s, Maggie Dickinson charts the dramatic expansion and reformulation of the food safety net in the twenty-first century. Today, receiving SNAP benefits is often tied to work requirements, which&#160;essentially subsidizes&#160;low-wage jobs. Excluded populations&mdash;such as&#160;the unemployed, informally employed workers, and&#160;undocumented immigrants&mdash;must rely on charity to survive.<BR /><BR /><I>Feeding the Crisis</I>&#160;tells the story of eight families as they navigate the terrain of an expanding network of assistance programs in which care and abandonment work hand in hand to make access to food uncertain for people on the social and economic margins. Amid calls at the federal level to expand work&#160;requirements for food assistance, Dickinson shows us how such ideas are bad policy that fail to adequately address hunger in America.&#160;<I>Feeding the Crisis</I>&#160;brings the voices of food-insecure families into national debates about welfare policy, offering fresh insights into how we can establish a right to food in the United States.

Paris&rsquo;s Gare du Nord is one of the busiest international transit centers in the world. In the past three decades, it has become an important hub for West African migrants&mdash;self-fashioned adventurers&mdash;navigating life in the city.<BR /><BR /> In this groundbreaking work, Julie Kleinman chronicles how West Africans use the Gare du Nord to create economic opportunities, confront police harassment, and forge connections to people outside of their communities. Drawing on ten years of ethnographic research, including an internship at the French national railway company, Kleinman reveals how racial inequality is ingrained in the order of Parisian public space. She vividly describes the extraordinary ways that African migrants retool French transit infrastructure to build alternative pathways toward social and economic integration where state institutions have failed. In doing so, these adventurers defy boundaries&mdash;between migrant and citizen, center and periphery, neighbor and stranger&mdash;that have shaped urban planning and immigration policy. <I>Adventure Capital </I>offers a new understanding of contemporary migration and belonging, capturing the central role that West African migrants play in revitalizing French urban life.<BR /> &#160;

Uncertain Citizenship&#160;explores how Bolivian migrants to Chile experience citizenship in their daily lives. Intraregional migration is on the rise in Latin America and challenges how citizenship in the region is understood and experienced. As Megan Ryburn powerfully argues, many individuals occupy a state of&#160;uncertain citizenship&#160;as they navigate movement and migration across borders. Drawing on multi-sited ethnographic research, this book contributes to debates on the meaning and practice of citizenship in Latin America and for migrants throughout the world.
