The core thesis of this book is that the major economic issues of renewable energy, housing, health and income disparities could best be addressed through direct government "in kind" production and redistributive measures.
It is argued that this governmental "in kind" production of essential needs would allow a rapid movement towards solutions that the market cannot possibly match. The market works through indirect means. So, it is no mystery why in the areas of energy, housing and health, problems are not only formidable but in many respects are getting worse. In contrast, governmental "in kind" production would be direct. Outcomes could be explicitly planned and managers would be publicly accountable. This shift in production should be accompanied by redistributive measures through higher taxes on corporations and the rich and the possible adoption of monetary policies in line with Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). Relatedly, the book demonstrates that the current lack of imaginative solutions results from a paralysis of imagination, rooted deeply in nineteenth century liberalism that held that the market was to serve all issues. A progressive agenda today needs to separate out "needs" from "wants" and to engage government production in the service of collectivist needs. "In kind" production would infuse a democratic component within the economy. The last chapter of the book also deals with how the ideology of neoliberalism blocks even the contemplation of governmental production in the service of people’s needs.
This accessible work will be of significant interest to anyone seeking original solutions to age-old problems, particularly readers of public policy, heterodox economics, progressive politics and MMT.

This text explores a set of key concepts in Marxist theory as developed and read by Lacan, demonstrating links and connections between Marxist thought and Lacanian practice.
The book examines the complexity of these encounters through the structure of a comprehensive vocabulary which covers diverse areas, from capitalism and communism to history, ideology, politics, work, and family. Offering new perspectives on these concepts in psychoanalysis, as well as in the fields of political and critical theory, the book brings together contributions from a range of international experts to demonstrate the dynamic relationship between Marx and Lacan, as well as illuminating "untranslatable points" which may offer productive tension between the two. The entries trace the trajectory of Lacan’s appropriation of Marx’s concepts and analyses how they were questioned, criticized, and reworked by Lacan, accounting for the wide reach of two thinkers and worlds in constant homology. Each entry also discusses psychoanalytic debates relating to the concept and seeks to refine the clinical scope of Marx’s work, demonstrating its impact on the social and individual dimensions of Lacanian clinical practice.
With a practical and structured approach, The Marx through Lacan Vocabulary will appeal to psychoanalysts and researchers in a range of fields, including political science, cultural studies, and philosophy.

A look inside the weaponization of social media, and an innovative proposal for protecting Western democracies from information warfare.
When Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram were first introduced to the public, their mission was simple: they were designed to help people become more connected to each other. Social media became a thriving digital space by giving its users the freedom to share whatever they wanted with their friends and followers. Unfortunately, these same digital tools are also easy to manipulate. As exemplified by Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, authoritarian states can exploit social media to interfere with democratic governance in open societies.
Tyrants on Twitter is the first detailed analysis of how Chinese and Russian agents weaponize Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube to subvert the liberal international order. In addition to examining the 2016 U.S. election, David L. Sloss explores Russia's use of foreign influence operations to threaten democracies in Europe, as well as China's use of social media and other digital tools to meddle in Western democracies and buttress autocratic rulers around the world.
Sloss calls for cooperation among democratic governments to create a new transnational system for regulating social media to protect Western democracies from information warfare. Drawing on his professional experience as an arms control negotiator, he outlines a novel system of transnational governance that Western democracies can enforce by harmonizing their domestic regulations. And drawing on his academic expertise in constitutional law, he explains why that system—if implemented by legislation in the United States—would be constitutionally defensible, despite likely First Amendment objections. With its critical examination of information warfare and its proposal for practical legislative solutions to fight back, this book is essential reading in a time when disinformation campaigns threaten to undermine democracy.
Phil Volker, Kathryn R. Barush, Rebecca Graves, Annie O'Neil, and David S. Zucker
After facing a life-changing cancer diagnosis, Phil Volker started walking a circuitous route around his ten-acre backyard. It was a chance to exercise, which his doctors had encouraged, but also created a sacred space to think and pray. Realizing that he was covering quite a distance, he found a map of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route and began to map his progress, calculating that 909 laps would get him from St. Jean Pied-de-Port to the Cathedral of St. James. Volker completed five caminos, five hundred miles each, without leaving his backyard, and many visitors have found healing, solace, and consolation in walking with him. Phil’s life was transformed by what he calls his three Cs—Camino, Catholicism, and Cancer. Part spiritual autobiography, part pilgrimage journal, and part Old Farmer’s Almanac, this book is the story of his journey.
An ode to Black girlhood and adolescence as seen through KB’s eyes, What the Fireflies Knew follows KB after her father dies of an overdose and the debts incurred from his addiction cause the loss of the family home in Detroit. Soon thereafter, KB and her teenage sister, Nia, are sent by their overwhelmed mother to live with their estranged grandfather in Lansing, Michigan. Over the course of a single sweltering summer, KB attempts to navigate a world that has turned upside down.
Her father has been labeled a fiend. Her mother’s smile no longer reaches her eyes. Her sister, once her best friend, now feels like a stranger. Her grandfather is grumpy and silent. The white kids who live across the street are friendly, but only sometimes. And they’re all keeping secrets. As KB vacillates between resentment, abandonment, and loneliness, she is forced to carve out a different identity for herself and find her own voice.
A dazzling and moving novel about family, identity, and race, What the Fireflies Knew poignantly reveals that heartbreaking but necessary component of growing up—the realization that loved ones can be flawed and that the perfect family we all dream of looks different up close.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored longstanding fissures in China’s business relationships with the West. If the West is going to develop a relationship of mutual trust and improve business relations with China in the coming decades, it is imperative to understand how to engage with Chinese thinking on ethics in business—this book explains how.
Government officials, businesspeople, and business-ethicists have trouble communicating about issues in ethics, policy, and business across the China-West divide. This book shows how to overcome the us-versus-them mindset plaguing China-West relations by presenting to Western audiences an easy-to-understand yet deeply informed primer on core ideas and perspectives in Chinese cultural and philosophical thought. The book considers original texts of Chinese philosophy and religion, and applies principles from those writings to three business-ethics topics of enduring interest to business executives, government officials, and academics, namely, the protection of intellectual property, assurance of product safety and quality in the pharmaceutical supply chain, and human rights.
This book is a must-read for those who want to forge constructive relationships with their Chinese counterparts based on mutual trust and understanding. The book is specifically relevant to business executives, but it should also be of interest to policymakers, educators, and students who seek to communicate more effectively with their Chinese counterparts, in particular about difficult and contentious business, policy, and ethical issues.
Equipment Management in the Post-maintenance Era: Advancing in the Era of Smart Machines (2nd Edition)
Recent advancements in information systems and computer technology have led to developments in equipment and robotic technology that have permanently changed the characteristics of manufacturing equipment. Equipment Management in the Post-Maintenance Era: Advancing in the Era of Smart Machines introduces a new way of thinking to help high-tech organizations manage an increasingly complex equipment base. It also facilitates the fundamental understanding of equipment management those in traditional industries will need to prepare for the emerging microchip era in equipment.
Kern Peng shares insights gained through decades of managing equipment performance. Using a systems model to analyze equipment management, he introduces alternatives in equipment management that are currently gaining momentum in high-tech industries. The book highlights the fundamental internal flaw in maintenance organizational setup, presents new approaches to replace maintenance functional setup, and illustrates a time-tested transformation and implementation process to help transition your organization from the maintenance era to the new post-maintenance era. Fundamentally, it:
- Breaks down the history of equipment into five phases,
- Provides a clear understanding of equipment management fundamentals, and
- Introduces alternatives in equipment management beyond the mainstream principles of maintenance management.
More specifically, the book examines maintenance management logistics, including planning and budgeting; training and people development; customer services and management; vendor management; and inventory management. Supplying a comprehensive look at the history of equipment management, it analyzes current maintenance practice and details approaches that can significantly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your equipment management well into the future.
This second edition addresses the role of the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) and significant advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in enabling a new generation of smart machines, which have in turn laid the foundation for Industry 4.0. Equipment utilizing IoT and sensors can monitor components and allow them to be serviced at an exact time without the need for a preventive maintenance schedule. Moreover, equipment replacement rarely occurs at the end of the piece of equipment’s natural life; rather, replacement is driven by the introduction of new technologies and products, all of which lead to less maintenance activities and reduces the importance of the traditional maintenance function. Maintenance departments today operate with fewer employees and smaller budgets. At a point when machines are smart enough to keep themselves running or equipment is rendered obsolete by better equipment in a short time, such as with computers and cellphones, companies do not need a maintenance department.
This updated edition reiterates the importance of transitioning to the post-maintenance era to effectively manage today’s sophisticated, smart yet expensive equipment. Many changes the author predicted a decade ago are accelerating in the IoT era. Equipment management is moving further away from the maintenance era and advancing deeper into the post-maintenance era. The trend for smart machines is very clear and companies that do not upgrade their equipment will lose their competitiveness. As equipment and factories become smarter, companies must change their practices and organizational structures to manage the new generation of equipment for Industry 4.0.
Jerrold Lee Shapiro
Our years between 45 and 65 are no longer a time for decline into old age. Ideally, once the awareness of our 40th 50th or 60th birthday hits, or the last child leaves home, a number of new opportunities arise, allowing us to savor what we have accomplished so far, create new directions, explore where we fit in the larger scheme of things, and determine what we ultimately want from our lives.
In Finding Meaning, Facing Fears: Living Fully Twixt Midlife and Retirement, clinical psychologist Jerrold Lee Shapiro invites you to re-envision this unique time in your life and discover opportunities to stretch in your capacities, face and conquer old demons, and meet new challenges with fresh resources.
Dr. Shapiro will help you discover which alternatives will best serve your relationships, career goals, personal growth objectives, and even spiritual quests. The text offers answers to inevitable life questions like: “Is that all there is?” “Where do I go from here?” “Is it too late to change my life?” “Why aren’t I happier?” The book features real-life vignettes from 45-65-year old women and men who are exceedingly open and honest about their lives.
Thoughtful and empowering, Finding Meaning, Facing Fears offers fresh perspective on a previously uncharted life transition.

Focusing on events in Rwanda, Armenia, and the former Yugoslavia as well as the Holocaust, Genocide and Gender in the Twentieth Century investigates how historically- and culturally-specific ideas led to genocidal sexual violence. Expert contributors also consider how these ideas, in conjunction with issues relating to femininity, masculinity and understandings of gendered identities, contributed to perpetrators' tools and strategies for ethnic cleansing and genocide.
The 2nd edition features:
* Five brand new chapters which explore: imperialism, race, gender and genocide; the Cambodian genocide; memory and intergenerational transmission of Holocaust trauma; and genocide, gender and memory in the Armenian case.
* An extended and enhanced introduction which makes use of recent scholarship on gender and violence.
* Historiographical and bibliographical updates throughout.
* Key primary document - excerpt from the 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide.
Updated and revised in its second edition, Genocide and Gender in the Twentieth Century is the authoritative study on the complex gender dimensions of ethnic cleansing and genocide in the 20th century.
Aparajita Nanda and Shelby Crosby
Throughout her work, Octavia E. Butler explored, critiqued, and created religious ideology. Her prescient thoughts on the synergy between politics and religion in America are evident in her 1993 dystopian novel, Parable of the Sower, and its 1998 sequel, Parable of the Talents. They explored, respectively, what happens during a divisive “cultural war” that unjustly impacts the disenfranchised, and the rise of a fascistic president, allied with white fundamentalist Christianity, who chants the slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
But religion, for Butler, need not be a restricting force. The editors of and contributors to God Is Change heighten our appreciation for the range and depth of Butler’s thinking about spirituality and religion, as well as how Butler’s work—especially the Parable and Xenogenesis series—offers resources for healing and community building. Essays consider the role of spirituality in Butler’s canon and the themes of confronting trauma as well as experiencing transformation and freedom. God Is Change meditates on alternate religious possibilities that open different political and cultural futures to illustrate humanity’s ability to endure change and thrive.

An estimated sixty million people in the United States are of Latinx descent, with youth under the age of eighteen making up two-thirds of this swiftly growing demographic. In Growing Up Latinx, Jesica Siham Fernández explores the lives of Latinx youth as they grapple with their social and political identities from an early age, and pursue a sense of belonging in their schools and communities as they face an increasingly hostile political climate.
Drawing on interviews with nine-to-twelve-year-olds, Fernández gives us rare insight into how Latinx youth understand their own citizenship and bravely forge opportunities to be seen, to be heard, and to belong. With a compassionate eye, she shows us how they strive to identify, and ultimately redefine, what it means to come of age—and fight for their rights—in a country that does not always recognize them.
Fernández follows Latinx youth as they navigate family, school, community, and country ties, richly detailing their hopes and dreams as they begin to advocate for their right to be treated as citizens in full. Growing Up Latinx invites us to witness the inspiring power of young people as they develop and make heard their political voices, broadening our understanding of citizenship.

Human Interaction with the Divine, the Sacred, and the Deceased: Psychological, Scientific, and Theological Perspectives
Thomas G. Plante and Gary E. Schwartz
Human Interaction with the Divine, the Sacred, and the Deceased brings together cutting-edge empirical and theoretical contributions from scholars in fields including psychology, theology, ethics, neuroscience, medicine, and philosophy, to examine how and why humans engage in, or even seek spiritual experiences and connection with the immaterial world. In this richly interdisciplinary volume, Plante and Schwartz recognize human interaction with the divine and departed as a cross-cultural and historical universal that continues to concern diverse disciplines. Accounting for variances in belief and human perception and use, the book is divided into four major sections: personal experience; theological consideration; medical, technological, and scientific considerations; and psychological considerations with chapters addressing phenomena including prayer, reincarnation, sensed presence, and divine revelations. Featuring scholars specializing in theology, psychology, medicine, neuroscience, and ethics, this book provides a thoughtful, compelling, evidence-based, and contemporary approach to gain a grounded perspective on current understandings of human interaction with the divine, the sacred, and the deceased. Of interest to believers, questioners, and unbelievers alike, this volume will be key reading for researchers, scholars, and academics engaged in the fields of religion and psychology, social psychology, behavioral neuroscience, and health psychology. Readers with a broader interest in spiritualism, religious and non-religious movements will also find the text of interest.

While place-based pilgrimage is an embodied practice, can it be experienced in its fullness through built environments, assemblages of souvenirs, and music? Imaging Pilgrimage explores contemporary art that is created after a pilgrimage and intended to act as a catalyst for the embodied experience of others. Each chapter focuses on a contemporary artwork that links one landscape to another-from the Spanish Camino to a backyard in the Pacific Northwest, from Lourdes to South Africa, from Jerusalem to England, and from Ecuador to California. The close attention to context and experience allows for popular practices like the making of third-class or "contact" relics to augment conversations about the authenticity or perceived power of a replica or copy; it also challenges the tendency to think of the “original” in hierarchic terms.
Imaging Pilgrimage brings various fields into conversation by offering a number of lenses and theoretical approaches (materialist, kinesthetic, haptic, synesthetic) that engage objects as radical sites of encounter, activated through religious and ritual praxis, and negotiated with not just the eyes, but a multiplicity of senses.

A dive into the origins, management, and uses and misuses of sovereign debt through the ages.
Public debts have exploded to levels unprecedented in modern history as governments responded to the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing economic crisis. Their dramatic rise has prompted apocalyptic warnings about the dangers of heavy debts—about the drag they will place on economic growth and the burden they represent for future generations. In Defense of Public Debt offers a sharp rejoinder to this view, marshaling the entire history of state-issued public debt to demonstrate its usefulness.
Authors Barry Eichengreen, Asmaa El-Ganainy, Rui Esteves, and Kris James Mitchener argue that the ability of governments to issue debt has played a critical role in addressing emergencies—from wars and pandemics to economic and financial crises, as well as in funding essential public goods and services such as transportation, education, and healthcare. In these ways, the capacity to issue debt has been integral to state building and state survival. Transactions in public debt securities have also contributed to the development of private financial markets and, through this channel, to modern economic growth.
None of this is to deny that debt problems, debt crises, and debt defaults occur. But these dramatic events, which attract much attention, are not the entire story. In Defense of Public Debt redresses the balance. The authors develop their arguments historically, recounting two millennia of public debt experience. They deploy a comprehensive database to identify the factors behind rising public debts and the circumstances under which high debts are successfully stabilized and brought down. Finally, they bring the story up to date, describing the role of public debt in managing the Covid-19 pandemic and recession, suggesting a way forward once governments—now more heavily indebted than before—finally emerge from the crisis.

In Xóchitl in Cuícatl: Floricanto. Cien años de poesía chicanx/latinx (1920-2020) reﬂeja una tradición literaria que se remonta a los primeros escritos de Cabeza de Vaca, el Inca Garcilaso de la Vega y Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá. La producción literaria en español en los EEUU se nutre de fuentes diversas —de las tradiciones indígenas americanas, de la presencia española y, sobre todo, de la inﬂuencia latinoamericana del siglo XX y XXI.
Esta literatura se resiste a clasiﬁcaciones fáciles, es el producto de corrientes lingüísticas y culturales que contrastan y amplían la visión monolingüística de los nacionalismos. Este es el idioma del futuro, de la nación de hispanohablantes más inﬂuyente del siglo XXI. Las propuestas poéticas de esta antología desafían las normas estilísticas de los/las lectores/as y críticos/as monolingües. Como en las antiguas jarchas, estos poemas susurran una hibridez revolucionaria y poseen la semilla de un lenguaje nuevo. Los juegos lingüísticos de estos y estas poetas, nos recuerdan lo que es una lengua viva, brutalmente innovadora, nunca sujeta a los corsés artiﬁciales de la academia.

Suitable for the classroom but completely accessible to the general reader, this volume presents many of the most interesting authors writing today from an Islamic background—Kamel Daoud, Yasmine el Rashidi, Hisham Matar, Tahar Djaout, Mohsin Hamid, Hanif Kureishi, Edward Said, Driss Chaibi, Kamila Shamsie, Tahar ben Jelloun, Leila Aboulela, Abdellah Taïa, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Hisham Matar, Eboo Patel, Reza Aslan, and Tamim Ansary, among others—who embody the various strains of Islamic interpretation and conflict. This study discusses an ongoing Reformation in Islam, focusing on the Arab Spring, the role of women and sexuality, the “clash of civilizations,” assimilation and cosmopolitanism, jihad, pluralism across cultures, free speech and apostasy. In an atmosphere of political and religious awakening, these authors search for a voice for individual rights while nations seek to restore a “disrupted destiny.” Questions of “de-Arabization” of the religion, ecumenicism, comparative modernities, and the role of literature thread themselves throughout the chapters of the book.
Novel Approaches to Lesbian History tells a tale about history and community in our allegedly post-identity era, examining contemporary novels that depict lesbian characters in recognizable historical situations. These imaginative stories provide a politically vital, speculative past in the face of a sketchy, problematic archive. Among the memorable characters in some 200 novels are pirates, cowgirls, and famous artists, ghosts and time travellers, immigrants and lovers. The best lesbian historical novels are conscientious and buoyant as they engage critical historiographical questions, but Novel Approaches also discusses the class and race biases that weigh on the genre. Some lesbian historical novels are based on archival evidence, others on conjecture or fantasy, but all convey the true fact that identity is elusive without a past, without which its future is nearly impossible.

The Routledge Handbook of the Archaeology of Indigenous-Colonial Interaction in the Americas brings together scholars from across the hemisphere to examine how archaeology can highlight the myriad ways that Indigenous people have negotiated colonial systems from the fifteenth century through to today.
The contributions offer a comprehensive look at where the archaeology of colonialism has been and where it is heading. Geographically diverse case studies highlight longstanding theoretical and methodological issues as well as emerging topics in the field. The organization of chapters by key issues and topics, rather than by geography, fosters exploration of the commonalities and contrasts between historical contingencies and scholarly interpretations. Throughout the volume, Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors grapple with the continued colonial nature of archaeology and highlight Native perspectives on the potential of using archaeology to remember and tell colonial histories.
This volume is the ideal starting point for students interested in how archaeology can illuminate Indigenous agency in colonial settings. Professionals, including academic and cultural resource management archaeologists, will find it a convenient reference for a range of topics related to the archaeology of colonialism in the Americas.

“A CULT CLASSIC WAITING ON ITS CULT.”
—William Boyle, author of City of Margins
Recently fired from his job, Dave sets out on a manic, misguided quest for answers up the food chain of law enforcement corruption and down the increasingly bizarre Florida coastline. Battling cops, biker gangs, backwoods Bigfoot hunters, and getting tangled in tourist traps (both figurative and literal), he eventually stumbles onto a conspiracy involving body cameras, love locks, and a grand psychological experiment which may reveal the revolving doors and invisible walls of the nation’s prison system.

Throughout history, humans have explored new places, making both good and bad moral decisions along the way. As humanity proceeds to explore space, it is important that we learn from the successes and not repeat the mistakes of the past. This book provides the first comprehensive introduction to ethics as it applies to space exploration and use. It examines real-world case studies that exemplify the ethical challenges we face in exploring beyond Earth: space debris, militarization in space, hazardous asteroids, planetary protection, the search for extraterrestrial life, commercial and private sector activities in space, space settlements, very long duration missions, and planetary-scale interventions. Major themes include human health, environmental concerns, safety and risk, governance and decision-making, and opportunities and challenges of multidisciplinary and international contexts. Ideal for classroom use and beyond, the book provides ways of thinking that will help students, academics and policymakers examine the full range of ethical decisions on questions related to space exploration

1988:NY-LA (Crónica de un viaje a América), de Juan Velasco Moreno, es una maravillosa road-movie en formato literario. Pero es algo, o mucho más. En 1988, Juan Velasco y Javier Fernández, y Wills –un hispanista norteamericana enamorado del Quijote–, emprenden un viaje por los Estados Unidos con el fin de recorrerlo desde Nueva York a Los Angeles. Aquella América de 1988, en lo sustancial, como signo y escenario, no difiera mucho de la que dejará Trump en enero de 2021. América en la descripción de Velasco es la del Gótico laico; la aferrada a su religión de lo pasajero; es la de la imposibilidad del regrso; la de los locos vagando por las calles de la ciudad, como inopinados ladrones de cuerpos; la del kitsch insoportable de los flamencos rosa; la de la frágil identidad desnuda y su fragmentariedad («In the desert, you can´t remember your name» cantaba —y no es una coincidencia— el grupo «America»). Es la constatación de que el viaje americano es un viaje de conocimiento, pero, sobre todo, de desaparición, en el que es inevitable borrar las huellas. Y ante la grandiosidad del paisaje geográfico y humano, enfrentarse a la experiencia vivida, pero también catódica y de ficción, que llamamos América, implica deshacerse de cualquier tentación hermenéutica en pos —como quería Susan Sontag— de una experiencia erótica en el sentido en el que, como expresa, finalmente, Juan Velasco: «Arder es mejor que saber».
Accessing the Clinical Genius of Winnicott: A Careful Rendering of Winnicott’s Twelve Most Influential Clinical papers
Donald Winnicott, psychoanalyst and pediatrician, is viewed by many in the psychodynamic field as the “other genius” in the history of psychodynamic theory and practice, along with Freud. This book selects and explores twelve of his most influential clinical papers.
Winnicott’s works have been highly valued in the decades since they were first published, and are still relevant today. Winnicott’s writings on the goals and techniques of psychodynamic psychotherapy have been foundational, in that he recast Freudian- and Kleinian-infl uenced thinking in the direction of the more relational schools of psychotherapy that define current 21st-century psychodynamic practice. Winnicott’s writings help us to understand the maturational processes of children, certainly. But more than that, they help us to understand how best to intervene when the enterprise of childhood leads to compromises of psychological health in later years. Yet, despite Winnicott’s influence and continuing relevance, his writings, while at some level simple, are elusive to modern readers. For one thing, he writes in the psychoanalytic genre of the 1930s-1960s, whose underlying theoretical assumptions and vocabulary are obscure in the present day and, for another, his writing often reflects primary process thinking, which is suggestive, but not declarative. In this work, Teri Quatman provides explanations and insight, in an interlocution with Winnicott’s most significant papers, exploring both his language and concepts, and enabling the clinician to emerge with a deep and reflective understanding of his thoughts, perspectives, and techniques.
Engaging and accessible, Accessing the Clinical Genius of Winnicott will be of great use to anyone encountering Winnicott for the first time, particularly in psychodynamic psychotherapeutic training, and in the teaching of relational psychotherapies.

Practical understanding and realistic curricular adaptations for ensuring the successful inclusion of students with special needs, ages three to eight Adapting Early Childhood Curricula for Children with Disabilities and Special Needs uses a developmental focus, rather than a disability orientation, to discuss typical and atypical child development and curricular adaptations. The integrated, non-categorical approach assumes that children are more alike than different in their development. The inclusive focus assumes that attitudes, environments, and intervention strategies can be adapted so that all young children with disabilities or other special needs can be included. An essential text for today, and a valuable resource to take into the classroom tomorrow, this practical guide provides daily activities, evidence-based how-to strategies, and realistic lesson modifications that help facilitate truly inclusive classrooms. Aspiring educators will also learn to develop their collaboration and problem-solving skills to effectively work with families, colleagues, and paraprofessionals in supporting every child’s positive development. The 10th Edition is updated to include enhanced discussions on working with families, children, and professionals of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and lifestyles; new tips for integrating Division for Early Childhood Recommended Practices; updated requirements for writing IEP goals and recommendations; and more.
