Sociale integratie in de geloofsgemeenschap

€9,54 incl. BTW
Exclusief verzendbijdrage
Auteur: Johan Smit
zestien praktijkverhalen

Sociale integratie en inclusie horen bij elkaar. 'Inclusie' betekent dat mensen met een verstandelijke beperking er gewoon bij horen. In een inclusieve geloofsgemeenschap zijn mensen met een verstandelijke beperking welkom, ze kunnen meedoen, zijn waardevol en hebben een eigen bijdrage. Er is ruimte voor vriendschap en verbondenheid. Die positieve momenten tellen veel meer dan het hebben van een beperking

On a dike close to the village of Fijnaart, in the South of the Netherlands, a truck has broken down. Sendogan, the Turkish driver, is trying to repair it when he notices a young woman standing on the other side of the road.
Once he has got his vehicle going again, he drives it to the required destination and he's ready fo the weekend. There's just one place in the whole area where you can go out: the Kopermolen, located in that same Fijnaart. That's where he sees that same young woman again and,. . .

Auteur: A. Polat

In this book, the half-Turkish, half-Dutch photographer Ahmet Polat goes to Turkey in search of his roots. He reconstructs the journey his father undertook as a truck driver, attracted to the Netherlands in the 1970s in search of a better future.

Polat realizes how uncommon the situation was for his parents in the 1970s, who met in the only place of entertainment in a tiny village in the south of the Netherlands. He had seen her previously standing on a dike, whre his truck had broken down earlier that day. In the nightclub, he approaches her in his broken German and then feel the spark between them.

Not long afterwards, Diana's parents are sitting in an airplane for the first time in their lives, heading for Turkey, anxiously wondering what's in store for them. Given the situation, it is quite surprising that they see no reason for concern, and the language isn't a problem either. Without being able to exchange a word, there is an immediate mutual understanding: two hardworking families, laborers who, despite the differences in age, religion, and origin, only want the best for their children. Ahmet Polat now understands that all those years in which he had sought acceptance in life, he had been focusing on the wrong people. In 1976, before he had even been born, both his grandfathers had taken care of that for him already.

. . . Neither here nor there. . . places the contemporary feelings and discussions concerning labor migration, cultural differences, minorities and identity in an original and refreshing light.

100 jaar vrouwenarbeid by philips

€8,00 incl. BTW
Exclusief verzendbijdrage
Auteur: Coelen

In dit boek vertellen we de geschiedenis van de vrouwelijke werknemers bij Philips, vanaf de oprichting in 1891 tot heden. We stellen ons de vraag: 'Waarom werden en worden op bepaalde momenten juist vrouwen aangetrokken voor bepaalde functies in het produktieproces?' Het antwoord hebben we niet alleen in de archieven gezocht. Ook de werkneemsters zelf ver-tellen erover.

In hoofdstuk 1 komt de periode van 1891 tot 1945 aan de orde. Het gaat over de meisjes in de lampen- en radiofabrieken, over de Drentse boerendochters en de Philiprak. Hoofdstuk 2 gaat over de maat-regelen die na de Tweede Wereldoorlog genomen werden om het tekort aan ongeschoolde vrouwelijke arbeidskrachten op te lossen. Vanaf eind jaren '6o werden veel fabrieken verplaatst naar de Derde Wereld. Hoofdstuk 3 gaat over de Philips-werkneemsters in de Filippijnen, Malaysia, Thailand en Mexico. Hoofdstuk 4 speelt weer in Nederland. Het bespreekt de reorganisaties van de jaren '70 en de automatisering en flexibilisering van de jaren '8o en de gevolgen daarvan voor het vrouwelijk personeel. Het laatste hoofdstuk vat één en ander samen en bekijkt het 'positieve actie'-beleid sinds 1988.

Ethiek gaat over keuzes die ertoe doen, en keuzes die ertoe doen zijn dilemma's. Het Griekse woord betekent 'twee horens'.

Of eigenlijk maar een keuze, nameliik het vinden van de weg tussen de twee horens van het dilemma. Dat komt dichter in de buurt van het oorspronkelijke woord.

The making of the modern world

Taal: Engels

With the end of the Second World War, a new world was born. The peace agreements that brought the conflict to an end implemented decisions that not only shaped the second half of the twentieth century, but continue to affect our world today and impact on its future. In 1946 the Cold War began, the state of Israel was conceived, the independence of India was all but confirmed and Chinese Communists gained a decisive upper hand in their fight for power. It was a pivotal year in modern history in which countries were reborn and created, national and ideological boundaries were redrawn and people across the globe began to rebuild their lives. In this remarkable history, the foreign correspondent and historian Victor Sebestyen draws on contemporary documents from around the world - including Stalin's personal notes from the Potsdam peace conference - to examine what lay behind the political decision-making. Sebestyen uses a vast array of archival material and personal testimonies to explore how the lives of generations of people across continents were shaped by the events of 1946. Taking readers from Berlin to London, from Paris to Moscow, from Washington to Jerusalem and from Delhi to Shanghai, this is a vivid and wide-ranging account of both powerbrokers and ordinary men and women from an acclaimed author.

The news media today are full of references to globalization - the complex connections between different countries in the world and the way these are increased over time. It is becoming a contemporary cliche that we live in a world of globalization, but little attention is paid to how it actually works in people's lives. A Globalizing World? offers a clear and intelligible guide to one of the key debates of our time, introducing the main theoretical positions to examine globalization in practice, from the films we watch to the jobs that are available to us and the goods we buy to the way we are governed.

A Prayer for the City

€46,11 incl. BTW
Exclusief verzendbijdrage
Auteur: Buzz Bissinger

Taal: engels

A PRAYER FOR THE CITY is a nonfiction masterpiece, a book to be savored for its heartbreaking drama, humor, and wisdom. In 1990, Buzz Bissinger's Friday Night Lights became an acclaimed bestseller and national sensation, igniting immediate debate about the role of high school football in small-town Texas. Now, the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist does for big cities what he did for small towns in this epic story of one remarkable politician's efforts to save a dying American city. Mayor Edward Rendell will do almost anything for Philadelphia. He will clean the bathrooms in City Hall, endure a joint appearance with Mickey Mouse, and per-sonally lobby President Clinton to keep jobs in the city. He is that rare politician who is larger than life in his ambitions, compassion, and flaws—a man wise enough to see the comic absurdity of his job, yet crazy enough to think he can actually revive his declining city. To succeed, Rendell must negotiate a tough new con-tract with city workers who are threatening to strike and wreak havoc on the city. He must allay African-American leaders engaged in a zero-sum game of racial politics. He must combat the loss of tens of thousands of jobs that have brought the Workshop of the World to its knees. As Rendell and his brilliant chief of staff, David Cohen, fight these political battles, four citizens of Philadelphia engage in their own personal struggles, each one con-nected to events at City Hall:

- Jim Mangan is a thirty-seven-year-old welder with a wife and six Children. Unless the mayor can achieve a miracle, he and thousands of others will lose their jobs at the city's historic Naval Shipyard.

- Linda Morrison is a city-employed policy analyst who believes urban life can improve if the mayor embraces unprecedented change. But will Rendell have the courage? Will she be able to sustain her love for the city, or will the pressures of crime and taxes drive her away?

- Mike McGovern is a prosecutor whose anger at the urban violence of the city fuels his drive for justice. As he questions the personal cost of what he does, he faces one of his toughest trials, seeking life imprisonment for a teenager charged with murder.

-Fifi Mazzccua is an elderly woman from the inner city raising four great-grandchildren while faithfully visiting her son in prison and hoping she'll live to see the day when he is freed. At turns heart-wrenching and hilarious, A Prayer for the City dramatically illustrates high-pressure politics and the threat of economic decline facing so many cities. No author has ever written with such humanity and insight about a politician in power and the way cities really work.

Buzz BISSINGER spent five and a half years writing this book, during which time he had exclusive access to Mayor Ed Rendell's administration. From 1981 to 1988 he was a reporter at The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting, and later he worked for the Chicago Tribune. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 1985-86 and is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair. He is the author of the acclaimed bestseller Friday Night Lights.
