The Sociology of Philosophies – A Global Theory of Intellectual Change
The present book ‘Global Climate Change: Causes and Consequences’ highlighted the cause and consequences of climate change. The book reveals the general anthropogenic activities, environmental pollution, ozone depletion, global warming, climate change and impacts on water resources and agriculture. The book mainly deals with the impacts of anthropogenic activities on the all components of biosphere in the form of global climate change as a consequence. This book gives an outline about the causes and consequences of climate change and its impacts on agriculture system, water resources, forest ecosystem and human health. The book will be beneficial for scientists, environmentalists, hydrologists, agriculturists, aquatic ecologists, health scientists, nongovernment organizations, research students and serve as a basic guide in the field of environment pollution and climate change.
The study of global warming and climate change is of crucial in the area of meteorology as well as applied mathematics, environmental engineering. The book treat global warming model that how is increasing temperature in the atmosphere with potential impacts. The presentation of this book is easy and intelligible by the beginners. Also this book will help meteorologist, climatologist who are undertaking researcher on global warming and climate change
To live an ‘authentic life’ amidst the personal and cultural connections of the globalising world demands a particular form of human ‘being’, referred to as ‘global citizenship’. Global citizen ‘becoming’ is a process of mundane and profound change to our sense of self-in-the-world and our abilities to act-in-the-world. Such change occurs when ‘outer world’ intrusions interrupt the coherence of the lifeworld. Previous student mobility research and theory reveal potentially rich sites for significant personal change. Can such experiences contribute specifically to global citizen being and becoming? Utilising the tools of phenomenology, we explore the lived-experience of UK undergraduate students across a number of different international mobility activities and witness the uniqueness of individual experience and learning, hitherto un-remarked forms of intersubjectivity, and multi-dimensional learning which leads to lifeworld change.
The Archaeology and Ethnography of Central Africa provides the first detailed description of the prehistory of the Loango coast of west-central Africa over the course of more than 3,000 years. The archaeological data presented in this volume comes from a pivotal area through which, as linguistic and historical reconstructions have long indicated, Bantu-speaking peoples expanded before reaching eastern and southern Africa. Despite its historical importance, the prehistory of the Atlantic coastal regions of west-central Africa has until now remained almost unknown. James Denbow offers an imaginative approach to this subject, integrating the scientific side of fieldwork with the interplay of history, ethnography, politics, economics, and personalities. The resulting 'anthropology of archaeology' highlights the connections between past and present, change and modernity, in one of the most inaccessible and poorly known regions of west-central and southern Africa.
Livestock, as a part of the global food production and ecological systems, is a key commodity for the well-being of humans. In future huge increase in the demand of animal production is expected to happen. Where food and water security will be the most important priorities for humankinds in the 21st century. The World will experience change in the global climate that will also cause shifts in the local climate that will have an impact on local and the global agriculture. This book reviews the impact of climate change on the health status of livestock and incidence of diseases, following the theory of global warming.
To Wake the Dead – A Renaissance Merchant and the Birth of Archaeology
Unique among recent works,The Oxford Handbook of Mesoamerican Archaeology brings together in a single volume article-length regional syntheses and topical overviews written by active scholars in the field of Mesoamerican archaeology.
Originally published in 1931, this book presents the content of an inaugural lecture delivered at Cambridge University by Arthur Bernard Cook (1868–1952) upon taking up the position of Laurence Professor of Classical Archaeology. The text provides a discussion of the development of classical archaeology with special reference to Cambridge University. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in classical archaeology and the writings of Cook.
The effect of climate change on the biota of the earth since the past is immense. It has been regulating the distribution of species in the world and caused extinction of many species. Moreover, the effects of global climate change from natural and human perspective (human population growth, industrialization, land-use and agricultural activities and biodiversity loss and poverty) on species are increasing in recent years. The main impacts of climate change are environmental deterioration, seasonal change and effects on distribution of basic resources and biotic potential of species. As a result it needs global attention to adapt and mitigate the situation.
Global environmental change and global societal transformations are both rooted in human attitudes and behaviour and are closely interrelated. It is true that natural forces act spontaneously, but human interferences with the ecosystem have resulted in substantial modifications of such processes. This book examines the human factor behind the dynamics of ecosystem and society. It focuses on resources (using the example of water), and social cleavages (with an emphasis on poverty, segregation, and terrorism). A chapter on spirituality underscores the message the text wants to convey.
This book discusses some of the global climate change regime negotiations' requirements and bridges the theory with practice on the topic from international relations point of view. It illustrates that further by giving examples from previous global climate change regime negotiations. Furthermore, it analysis in details the role of the Presidents of the United States of America in the last four decades, how the leadership style played a role in the negotiations, and also the roles of their advisers in the decision-making process. It also analyses the role of China and the EU in such negotiations. This book is useful read to politicians, negotiators, students of international relations and political science, environmentalists, NGOs, and to those who want to learn about the topic and has limited time to spend on going very deep into theories related to this topic.
At the end of the 20th century and in the beginning of the 21st century there is an enormous change in global economy. At the same time with competitive economy the industrialized countries emit greenhouse gases which cause global climate change. Day by day the life expectancy increases and economic competitions of the nations change due to open economy. Again the natural calamities such as cyclone, earthquake and tsunami comparatively increase due to global warming, which decrease economic development. So that in the 21st century economy faces with difficult challenges. The net national product, sustainability and social welfare economy, green accounting, optimization in economics, voting system, game theory and health valuation due to environment pollution are parts and parcel of modern economy. The work is prepared considering the economic development emphasizing the above topics.
The relationship between women and environment is closely related. It indicates a reciprocal relationship based on intrinsic knowledge, co-existence, mutual understanding and plural activities. It is pivotal for attaining sustainable development and ensuring justice and peace in the society. But global climate change poses a deadly threat to the livelihood of people especially women through breaking this relationship in Bangladesh. In a developing country like Bangladesh, women play important roles in household chores especially for food security activities. But women face double hazards due to gender inequalities and global climate change. This paper aims to explore the impact of climate change on women and food security in Bangladesh. It also examines the existing societal and cultural practices that impact on gender inequality and capacity building of women to ensure food security. The unequal gender relations and adverse impacts of global climate change contribute to jeopardize the livelihood of women in Bangladesh. This book also analyzes the policy issues for overcoming the gender inequalities and backdrops of global climate change in Bangladesh.
