Book Description :

Virtually all aspects of human behavior show enormous variation both within and between cultural groups, including material culture, social organization and language. Thousands of distinct cultural groups exist: about 6,000 languages are spoken today, and it is thought that a far greater number of languages existed in the past but became extinct. Using a Darwinian approach, this book seeks to explain this rich cultural variation. There are a number of theoretical reasons to believe that cultural diversification might be tree-like, that is phylogenetic: material and non-material culture is clearly inherited by descendants, there is descent with modification, and languages appear to be hierarchically related. There are also a number of theoretical reasons to believe that cultural evolution is not tree-like: cultural inheritance is not Mendelian and can indeed be vertical, horizontal or oblique, evidence of borrowing abounds, cultures are not necessarily biological populations and can be transient and complex. Here, for the first time, this title tackles these questions of cultural evolution empirically and quantitatively, using a range of case studies from Africa, the Pacific, Europe, Asia and America. A range of powerful theoretical tools developed in evolutionary biology is used to test detailed hypotheses about historical patterns and adaptive functions in cultural evolution. Evidence is amassed from archaeological, linguist and cultural datasets, from both recent and historical or pre-historical time periods. A unifying theme is that the phylogenetic approach is a useful and powerful framework, both for describing the evolutionary history of these traits, and also for testing adaptive hypotheses about their evolution and co-evolution. Contributors include archaeologists, anthropologists, evolutionary biologists and linguists, and this book will be of great interest to all those involved in these areas.

Book Description :

This book is not an impersonal academic treatise on social justice activism but instead the author's description of what social justice activism has looked like through the prism of his eyes. The methods of the book are straightforward, using historical, current and personal data--all of which were inextricably entwined. The text focuses on the truth that bigotry is perpetuated by countless white, black and brown people. More important than academic debates about bigotry, the book is about negating or preventing bigotry. The author reviews historical incidents and also tells portions of his own life stories. His goal is to help readers know his perceptions of bigotry and then compare and contrast his perceptions with their own. The text is organized in major topics: Beginnings of Bigotry; Creation of a Nation; Migrants, Immigrants and Slaves; Quest for Civil Rights; Women's Rights Movement; Disability Rights Movement; Elder Rights Movement; LGBTQ Rights Movement; Social Class Matters; and Going Forward. This book is written to be actively read and to initiate meaningful conversations about social justice. The primary audiences for the text are college students who are majoring in social and behavioral sciences, social work and health care. The book will also be a valuable resource to teachers, community activists, and other persons who want to enhance their knowledge of racism, sexism, homonegativity, ableism, ageism, xenophobia and classism.

Book Description :

Co-published with UNESCO A product of the UNESCO-IHP project on Water and Cultural Diversity, this book represents an effort to examine the complex role water plays as a force in sustaining, maintaining, and threatening the viability of culturally diverse peoples. It is argued that water is a fundamental human need, a human right, and a core sustaining element in biodiversity and cultural diversity. The core concepts utilized in this book draw upon a larger trend in sustainability science, a recognition of the synergism and analytical potential in utilizing a coupled biological and social systems analysis, as the functioning viability of nature is both sustained and threatened by humans.

It will be beneficial for college students, high school juniors and seniors, and organizations whose ever-changing workforce leads to the necessity of educating employees on how to deal with the diversity of employees and customers in a positive manner. This timely publication is filled with current and relevant examples taken from pop culture: from TV shows, song lyrics, and poetry of the times. These excerpts make this publication much more interesting and easy for the reader to relate to and understand.

Book Description :

L.A. Stories describes the experiences of a university instructor teaching English to culturally diverse students. It uses excerpts from student essays to demonstrate the emotional connections communicated by writers drawing on the wealth of their own experiences. For many of these students, English is a second language, and many others have had little opportunity to develop their writing skills. Therefore, the excerpts illustrate the varying degrees of success the writers achieved. Carol Clark Ottesen reflects on the journey of a teacher attempting to guide these students in improving these skills. The voices she presents speak of the lives of African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and others. Otteson seeks to expose the importance of the recognition of diversity and the effective communication of it in an increasingly integrated society. She accomplishes this not only by presenting writing samples, but through descriptions of the unification between cultures as they shared experiences in the classroom. This book serves not only to represent the outcomes of openly expressing diversity, but to guide those teaching many different cultures through a learning experience of their own, while maximizing the achievement of their students.

Book Description :

Bhikhu Parekh argues for a pluralist perspective on cultural diversity. Writing from both within the liberal tradition and outside of it as a critic, he challenges what he calls the "moral monism" of much of traditional moral philosophy, including contemporary liberalism--its tendency to assert that only one way of life or set of values is worthwhile and to dismiss the rest as misguided or false. He defends his pluralist perspective both at the level of theory and in subtle nuanced analyses of recent controversies. Thus, he offers careful and clear accounts of why cultural differences should be respected and publicly affirmed, why the separation of church and state cannot be used to justify the separation of religion and politics, and why the initial critique of Salman Rushdie (before a Fatwa threatened his life) deserved more serious attention than it received. Rejecting naturalism, which posits that humans have a relatively fixed nature and that culture is an incidental, and "culturalism," which posits that they are socially and culturally constructed with only a minimal set of features in common, he argues for a dialogic interplay between human commonalities and cultural differences. This will allow, Parekh argues, genuinely balanced and thoughtful compromises on even the most controversial cultural issues in the new multicultural world in which we live.

Book Description :

This book confronts the patterns of school failure often faced by subordinated minority groups in the United States. It does so by presenting a socioacademic framework that is based on the notion that all groups can have comparable access to quality schooling, comparable participation in the schooling, and derive comparable educational benefits from their participation. Organized around three key, interrelated components--communication, integration, and cooperation--the book combines theoretical concepts with actual classroom practices that support change. It moves us from a position of rhetoric about educational equality to one that actively addresses the socioacademic needs of students in a culturally diverse society.

Cultural diversity is an abstract good, a moral form of biodiversity - and also a codeword for trade protectionism. How do these two motives interplay in the debate? Can they be reconciled?

Book Description :

This theoretically innovative anthology investigates the problematic linkages between conserving cultural heritage, maintaining cultural diversity, defining and establishing cultural citizenship, and enforcing human rights. It is the first publication to address the notions of cultural diversity, cultural heritage and human rights in one volume. Heritage provides the basis of humanity’s rich cultural diversity. While there is a considerable literature dealing separately with cultural diversity, cultural heritage and human rights, this book is distinctive and has contemporary relevance in focusing on the intersection between the three concepts. Cultural Diversity, Heritage and Human Rights establishes a fresh approach that will interest students and practitioners alike and on which future work in the heritage field might proceed.

Book Description :

Du fait de l'immigration, la diversité culturelle et linguistique de nos sociétés a tendance à augmenter. Du fait d'interdépendances multiples, nous devons aussi de plus en plus fonctionner au niveau d'entités plurinationales, comme l'Union européenne, qui connaissent une diversité culturelle et linguistique sensiblement plus grande que chacune de leurs composantes. N'est-il pas d'autant plus difficile d'organiser durablement une solidarité généreuse au sein d'une population qu'elle est plus hétérogène culturellement et linguistiquement ? Si c'est le cas, les politiques dites " multiculturelles " sont-elle de nature à adoucir cette tension ou au contraire à l'exacerber ? C'est autour de ces questions que Philippe Van Parijs a rassemblé des chercheurs de divers horizons, mondialement réputés, pour deux jours de discussion intense. Ce livre reprend l'ensemble des communications et commentaires, suivi de conclusions personnelles par Brian Barry, Will Kymlicka et Philippe Van Parijs.

Book Description :

This volume explores ethnicity and gender developments in relation to the military. In some countries, the armed forces have a long history in responding to ethnic diversity, while elsewhere it has come up only recently as a policy issue. An even-handed representation of ethnic minorities in the military is recognized as crucial for enhancing its social legitimacy and professional quality. The same can be said about the integration of women in the military, which during a few decades across the board has grown into more than just another issue of personnel policies. Indeed with regard to gender, the symbolism and sensitivities surrounding core identities are at stake – as with the presence of gays and lesbians in the military. Written by experts in the field, the chapters cover fourteen countries around the world: the USA, Canada, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, South-Africa, Eritrea, India, Israel, Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. Taken together, the armed forces of these countries offer a fascinating mix of similarities and differences in the ways they try to manage cultural diversity. Cultural Diversity in the Armed Forces will be of interest to students and scholars of military studies, sociology, gender and political science.
