"Zoli ist eine junge, starke und außergewöhnliche Frau vom Bolk der Roma. Sie stammt aus Bratislava und hat in den Wäldern der Umgebung den Vernichtungsfeldzug der Deutschen gegen ihre Leute überlebt. Als sie Jahre später die traditionellen Gesänge ihres Volkes veröffentlichen wiill, wird sie vom sozialistischen Regime unter Druck gesetzt. Auch die Sippe und ihr Geliebter verstoßen sie. Zoli flieht in den Westen -- allein und mittellos, aber voller Hoffnung, doch noch irgendwo ihr Glück zu finden"--Page 4. of cover.

"This is not a book about the nuts and bolts of sentence structure, grammar, and the like, but one that focuses specifically on what you need to do to successfully begin a writing project and bring it to completion. Anyone who is a writer or who aspires to become a writer will benefit from its advice. Part I of the book discusses how to plan your writing. Matters such as identifying your purpose, considering your target audience, and addressing your anxieties about writing are covered. Part II is about gathering ideas and creating your outline. Useful suggestions include keeping an idea book, maintaining a journal, and holding brainstorming writing sessions. The third part of the book covers the actual writing of the book itself, starting with the first draft and continuing on until you have your final copy. One of the most useful suggestions in this part involves doing "freewriting," that is, writing whatever comes to mind and doing it quickly (as a way of stimulating the creative juices). Part IV is on systematizing the writing process. Perhaps the best piece of advice from this section involves overcoming perfectionism and negative self-talk. This section also talks about the importance of making time for writing, developing your writing routine, and getting rid of distractions. The last part of the book is titled "Getting Your Writing Done." Like the other parts, Part V contains many useful suggestions. One of the best is this: "Start very small and build on it." As someone who has written his entire adult life, I have found that the hardest part of writing a book or article is getting into the swing of things. Like training to run a marathon, a writing project takes discipline and conditioning. Beginning with writing small chunks at a time and building one's writing stamina over time is sound advice. At the end of the book is a helpful recap that provides a quick summary of all the points and is useful in reinforcing the points made throughout the book. This is a must read for any aspiring writer." - Top 50 Reviewer

Warum manche Menschen erfolgreich sind - und andere nicht

Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.

Soziologische Phantasie

Category: Social Science

Page: 325

Soziologische Phantasie, die erstmals 1963 erschienene deutsche Übersetzung von C. Wright Mills‘ The Sociological Imagination, darf zurecht als Meilenstein wissenschaftlich-politischer Debatten in den Vereinigten Staaten betrachtet werden und zählt auch heute noch zu einer der wichtigsten Selbstkritiken der Soziologie. Mills schlägt hier einen dritten Weg zwischen bloßem Empirismus und abgehobener Theorie ein: Er plädiert für eine kritische Sozialwissenschaft, die sich weder bürokratisch instrumentalisieren lässt noch selbstverliebt vor sich hin prozessiert, sondern gesellschaftliche Bedeutung erlangt, indem sie den Zusammenhang von persönlichen Schwierigkeiten und öffentlichen Problemen erhellt. Eben dies sei Aufgabe und Verheißung einer Soziologie, die sich viel zu häufig „einer merkwürdigen Lust an der Attitüde des Unbeteiligten“ hingebe.

This volume, edited by Grace Veach, explores leading approaches to foregrounding information literacy in first-year college writing courses. Chapters describe cross-disciplinary efforts underway across higher education, as well as innovative approaches of both writing professors and librarians in the classroom. This seminal work unpacks the disciplinary implications for information literacy and writing studies as they encounter one another in theory and practice, during a time when "fact" or "truth" is less important than fitting a predetermined message. Topics include reading and writing through the lens of information literacy, curriculum design, specific writing tasks, transfer, and assessment.

Dieser Klassiker der Entwicklungspsychologie liefert eine gut verständliche und immer noch spannend zu lesende Übersicht über die typischen Wahrnehmungs- und Interpretationsmuster von Vorschulkindern. Wie interpretieren Kinder den Zusammenhang von Wörtern und Dingen, den Ursprung und die Eigenschaften natürlicher Phänomene und die Ursache von Ereignissen? Jean Piaget analysiert in diesem Buch die typischen Eigenheiten des kindlichen Weltverstehens und widmet sich damit grundlegenden Fragen der Entwicklungspsychologie. Auf der Basis eigener Befragungen zu unterschiedlichen Aspekten der Kinderlogik greift er die Resultate der damaligen Forschung auf und setzt diese zu einem umfassenden Erklärungsmodell zusammen.

"For courses in Argument and Research." "This version of Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, Concise has been updated the reflect the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016) *" Teach students to read arguments critically and to produce effective arguments Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, Concise Edition, Seventh Edition integrates four different approaches to argument: the enthymeme as a logical structure, the classical concepts of logos, pathos, and ethos, the Toulmin system, and stasis theory. Focusing on argument as dialogue in search of solutions instead of a pro-con debate with winners and losers, it is consistently praised for teaching the critical-thinking skills needed for writing arguments. Major assignment chapters each focus on one or two classical stases (e.g. definition, resemblance, causal, evaluation, and policy). Each concept is immediately reinforced with discussion prompts, and each chapter ends with multiple comprehensive writing assignments. This concise version contains all of chapters in the Brief Edition, but excludes some sections and exercises to increase savings. Also available in a Comprehensive version (032190673X) and a Brief version (0321964276). "*The 8th edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the increasing mobility of texts, MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following." "
