In Communities and Networks, Katherine Giuffre takes the science of social network analysis and applies it to key issues of living in communities, especially in urban areas, exploring questions such as: How do communities shape our lives and identities? How do they foster either conformity or innovation? What holds communities together and what happens when they fragment or fall apart? How is community life changing in response to technological advances? Refreshingly accessible and built on fascinating case examples, this unique book provides not only the theoretical grounding necessary to understand how and why the burgeoning area of social network analysis can be useful in studying communities, but also clear technical explanations of the tools of network analysis and how to gather and analyze real-world network data. Network analysis allows us to see community life in a new perspective, with sometimes surprising results and insights, and this book enables readers to gain a deeper understanding of social life and the relationships that build (and break) communities. This engaging text will be an exciting new resource for upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students in a wide range of courses including social network analysis, community studies, urban studies, organizational studies, and quantitative methods.

Socio-legal studies have had an ambivalent relationship with the 'legal' – one of its defining aspects, but at the same time one that the discipline has sought to transcend or even leave behind. While socio-legal studies benefit hugely from the insights, methods and theories of other social science and humanity disciplines, the contributions to Exploring the 'Legal' in Socio-Legal Studies illustrate the value of a focus on the 'legal'. The chapters in this book combine traditional legal materials and analyses with other ways of engaging empirically with the 'legal'. They illustrate the rich potential of the 'legal' as a site both for theoretical and methodological reflection and for case study analysis. Taken as a whole, this volume demonstrates that methodological discussion is most helpful when rooted in empirical cases, and that the best case studies also help us to develop our methodologies. Bringing methodology and empirical analysis together offers an opportunity to reflect on socio-legal studies and develop the discipline in productive new directions.
Pinch analysis enables a fast approach to an optimum thermal performance, while bringing new insights and improving the understanding of the nature of various thermodynamic processes in a plant. A graphical pinch based methodology is discussed in this book along with direct case studies of pinch analysis for a given stream data. These case studies mention about the various steps involved in a graphical pinch based analysis. Pinch analysis is supposed to be of limited use in industries, on the contrary pinch technology based methods can be used in many types of chemical as well as agriculture industries. The simple graphical approach used in this book is designed to determine the hot and cold utility targets, and it shares the same intuitive, insight-driven characteristics of pinch analysis techniques. Through the approach followed, pinch point for particular ?Tmin (10 degree Celsius in book) can be easily determined.
An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria is one of Sigmund Freud’s most influential case studies. Focusing on the psychoanalyst’s investigation into the emotional life of a suicidal 18-year-old, it offers a fascinating insight into his methods of working and interpretation. Freud’s analysis of the patient, who he refers to as Dora, leads him to uncover a remarkably troubled and conflict-ridden family history. In Hysteria, Richard Appignanesi and Oscar Zarate bring to life this landmark of psychoanalysis, capturing the gripping story of a deeply troubled but fascinating patient. This beautifully drawn guide shows Freud developing his theory of dream interpretation, combining it with his studies of hysteria and sexual development to create one of the most influential and remarkable works of psychoanalysis ever committed to paper.

A substantial body of research exists on the origin and pedagogy of Black Studies. However, there is a dearth of empirical research that investigates how racial identity politics profile Black Studies leadership and Black Studies programs at principally white universities in the Post civil Rights Era.
