Book Description :

Gender inequality is entrenched in the cultural, political, and market systems that operate at household, community, and national levels. Overarching global changes in access to markets, climatic conditions, and the availability of natural resources intensify disparities in income, assets, and power among genders. This book explains these gender dynamics at macro and micro levels through GIS and spatial analysis. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the current role of GIS in the context of gender inequalities, how it still exists globally despite substantial national and international measures that have been taken toward gender equality. It illustrates global and country-level maps of measures of gender inequalities, such as gender equality index, access to basic education, health and life expectancy, equality of economic opportunity, and political empowerment. The global case studies provided in the consequent chapters explore the world of gender inequalities and get directly involved with some of the GIS and mapping applications. Chapter 2 investigates how GIS can be adapted for the criminal justice response to domestic violence (DV) and to eliminate gender-based violence. Chapter 3 discusses applying GIS and spatial analysis to the prevalence and incidence mapping of intimate partner violence (IPV) and geospatial factors that influence help-seeking and resource availability. Chapter 4 discusses the spatial disparity of gender-representation across industry types in the United States. Chapter 5 explores the social and environmental injustice experienced by female migrant workers at Guiyu town, China, in the context of both environmental pollution and governance. Chapter 6 presents a social vulnerability index to identify spatial patterns of social vulnerability and gender inequalities among Mexican households. Chapter 7 presents the United States’ opioid crisis over the past two decades and analysis of mortality by gender, race, age, and urbanicity. Chapter 8 discusses the commitment to "leave no one behind" as the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and identifies inequalities among women and girls by mapping multiple deprivations in Pakistan. Chapter 9 discusses the long-standing challenges in establishing gender parity in the transportation workforce in the United States. Chapter 10 presents a study that utilizes geospatial statistical tools and state-level admission data to examine gender inequalities in higher-education enrollment in Nigeria and investigates the key factors on enrollment. This book fosters engagement with the newest mapping and GIS application in contemporary issues regarding gender inequalities and nurtures recognition of how institutional global, everyday, and intimate spaces are inherently gendered, classed, raced, and sexualized. It demonstrates the spatiality of the politics of gender difference, and the contributions of GIS and spatial analysis to the struggles for equality and social justice. A unique work that Lays out a step-by-step approach to identify relevant GIS applications, spatial methods, data collection, and mapping techniques for gender inequalities research Has a strong international and global perspective. The author is well-informed in global perspectives Investigates the patterns/processes and indicators driving gender inequality at various temporal scales and at comparably detailed resolutions Illustrates finer-scale case studies, appropriate for local programs and interventions, as well as global scale studies contributing to international and national-level policy discussions on gender inequality Since gender inequality is a research area that is very wide and with strands into many academic traditions, this book is aimed at different and diverse academics/research. It is written for geographers, public health practitioners, sociologists, epidemiologists, criminologists, politicians, economists, environmentalists, GIScientists, and health and research professionals interested in applying GIS and spatial analysis to the study of gender inequalities.

Book Description :

Why do so many writers and audiences turn to theatre to resolve overwhelming topics of pain and suffering? This collection of essays from international scholars reconsiders how theatre has played a crucial part in encompassing and preserving significant human experiences. Plays about global issues, including terrorism and war, are increasing in attention from playwrights, scholars, critics and audiences. In this contemporary collection, a gathering of diverse contributors explain theatre's special ability to generate dialogue and promote healing when dealing with human tragedy. This collection discusses over 30 international plays and case studies from different time periods, all set in a backdrop of war. The four sections document British and American perspectives on theatres of war, global perspectives on theatres of war, perspectives on Black Watch and, finally, perspectives on The Great Game: Afghanistan. Through this, a range of international scholars from different disciplines imaginatively rethink theatre's unique ability to mediate the impacts and experiences of war. Featuring contributions from a variety of perspectives, this book provides a wealth of revealing insights into why authors and audiences have always turned to the unique medium of theatre to make sense of war.

Book Description :

The book begins with the premise that workforce education is a global issue and is becoming increasingly competitive. It is important for the reader to understand the concept of work historically, as well as its meaning and implications to individuals. Understanding this history leads to better instruction, education, and training, which can solve many human performance problems in the workplace. Workforce Education, Occupational, Training, Instruction or Career Education, Voca-tional Education or Technical Education is used interchangeably throughout this book. The concept of today’s workforce development is universal. As a college professor, I believe I have an ethical obligation to promote learning, to ensure health and safety, to protect the public and private trust, and to promote the transfer of learning. A second premise of this book is that there are common issues and problems in the workplace. This book provides, in a single volume, the knowledge base common to all work settings for today’s students, regardless of their specialty. Thus, the book was designed for students to think globally and to understand how to be and what it takes to be competitive in the global economy.

Book Description :

Jobs are changing. Workforce growth is slowing. The population is aging. Educational attainment levels are lagging. Skill gaps are rising. Generations are clashing. Any one of these events individually could trigger a significant problem for employers. But combined these workforce trends are creating the Perfect Labor Storm 2.0, unprecedented demographic and economic events that will force employers to change the way they do business. In this completely revised and updated second-edition book, author Ira S. Wolfe creates a vivid and sometimes frightening image of what future workforces will look like through his use of trends, facts and statistics. He then offers recommendations for recruiting a younger workforce, managing intergenerational conflicts, and retaining workers. What Other Readers Have to Say about The Perfect Labor Storm 2.0 "Perfect Labor Storm 2.0 is Powerful Stuff ? enough to make any manager gasp. This is a tremendous work and one that hopefully will change employer attitudes and promote proper hiring/training/retention efforts." Martin E. Gilligan, Jr., Owner/Principal Consultant MARTIN & ASSOCIATES "Dr. Wolfe skillfully dissects the multifaceted topic of demographic change by detailing its impact on key aspects of everyday life. From a legal prospective, the policy and practical ramifications of the Perfect Labor Storm are astounding. From recruiting to retirement, the human capital issues raised in this book will be paramount for every business to strategically address. It should be required reading for every Human Resource Professional." Michael A. Moore, Esq. Business and Employment Attorney Russell, Krafft, and Gruber, LLP "Perfect Labor Storm 2.0 will be one of the most quoted books over the next decades. Ira did his homework on this one. Anyone who depends on having a strong workforce for the next twenty years better heed his warnings and prepare accordingly." Bobby Foster The Organizer Plus Co., LLC "A fantastic body of work. After reading Perfect Labor Storm 2.0, I was thinking how important it would be for each of the Presidential candidates as well as all our elected officials to read this book." Stuart Murphy Round Table Consulting "Everyone in business should have a copy of The Perfect Labor Storm on their desk, not just their bookshelf." R.D.A. Morris Major, Pennsylvania State Police, retired "Let me tell you ? once again ? that you did a FANTASTIC job with The Perfect Labor Storm.
