I have purchased the ' Personalized Back Cover' option and this is the text that should appear at the back cover of my book: Is there room for yet another book on PhD-writing? Yes there is. Most of the available publications on this topic are contributions from professional academics, written from the perspective of supervisors or examiners rather than from that of successful candidates. Most of them are too long and not always user-friendly, while their approach is, more often than not, too scientific to be accessible to the average candidate. It is with these considerations in mind that the author, an average doctoral candidate who wrote his PhD thesis while working full-time, submitting his written work for examination within 24 months of becoming registered as a research student in one of the UK's top Law Schools, set out to write this book, which is, uniquely, written from a student's perspective. What makes of this work an original contribution is not the novelty of the topic addressed in it but, rather, its brevity, its practical approach, its simplicity, the background of its author (a recent, successful PhD candidate) and the motivation of its author: to help candidates complete their PhD thesis in under three years, as the author of this book did. This short book contains a wealth of practical advice and guidance on the issues involved in conceptualizing, organizing and writing your doctoral thesis so that you can increase your chances of surviving the ordeal of PhD thesis writing with the least amount of pain and with the minimum investment in terms of the time and effort spent pursuing your objective.

Systemic change from a planned economy to a market society requires not only an implementation of market institutions but also actions of people according to the new conditions in everyday-life. The book focuses on the question how far middle-class households are able to organize their livelihoods. Do they take the necessary self-responsibility for their lives? Or do they still rely on the Soviet-type nanny state of the past? Or, do they only believe in their own networks of kin and acquaintances for earning their livelihoods? The book presents a cross-country, rural-urban comparison in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan based on secondary data and quantitative and qualitative primary research. Eckhard Dittrich is professor emeritus of macro sociology at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany. Heiko Schrader is professor of macro sociology, sociology of development and transformation at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany.

Between May 1973 and February 1974 three teams of astronauts increased the American space endurance record from 14 days, set in 1965, to three months aboard the Skylab space station in missions lasting 28, 59 and 84 days. American astronauts did not surpass these records for over 20 years until the NASA Mir missions began in 1995. Skylab evolved from plans to use Apollo lunar hardware for extended scientific missions in Earth orbit, becoming a platform for research in solar science, stellar astronomy, space physics, earth resources, life and material sciences. Skylab was where Americans first learned the skill of truly living and working in space, even offering students the chance to fly their own experiments on a manned spacecraft. In Skylab - Americas Space Station, David Shayler chronicles the evolution of the station, its infrastructure on the ground including astronaut training, each of the three manned missions, summary of results, achievements and the lessons learned. The creation of the International Space Station is the real legacy of Skylab as American astronauts once again embark on extended missions around the Earth.

What is the meaning of life? The question has been asked by the brightest philosophical minds for centuries. Still to this day answers vary greatly depending on the worldview. Solomon, the wisest king in Israel's history, set all his energies to search for the ultimate meaning of life under the sun. His conclusions may shock and surprise you--vanity, chasing after the wind, absurdity, vanishing smoke. Are these the musings of a genius or of a mad man? If you are looking for a candy-coated appraisal of life then go ahead and put this book down. However, if you are looking for a no-frills, brutally honest, ragged-edged assessment of reality, then you have discovered an indispensable volume. In Journal of a Mad Man, pastor and author Derrick McCarson will carefully guide readers verse by verse through Solomon's meditations recorded in the Old Testament book of wisdom--Ecclesiastes. Not only will readers attempt to plumb the depths of some of mankind's most vexing questions, but they will also discover Solomon's secrets for wise living in a warped world.

When Love Is Not Enough relates how a multitude of factors--the competence of staff; the safety, nurturing, and protective elements of the emotional, physical, and political setting; and all overt and covert organizational dynamics--determine whether or not a treatment setting accomplishes its therapeutic aims. Authors in When Love Is Not Enough continue the emphasis on the group-as-a-whole “Group Relation” model of organizational and group processes begun with Wilfred Bion’s work at the Tavistok Clinic in London in the 1940s. This model helps those providing services to children and adolescents evaluate their treatment programs and make the necessary changes toward improvement. Chapters in When Love Is Not Enough are dedicated to improving the psychological treatment of children and adolescents in postmodern society, a society in which life in interdependent communities is becoming increasingly important for the health and survival of all persons. Topics covered include: the Tavistok approach to understanding group and organizational behavior the emphasis on group-as-a-whole in problem solving and treatment design narrowing the gap between plan and outcome the dynamics involved in the psychiatric treatment of children issues of staff selection, training, and development in programs designed to treat children countertransference responses in the treatment of children and adolescents revitalizing organizations the subjective experience of school life When Love Is Not Enough helps organizations realize the ways in which they may, inadvertently, undermine the emotional and cognitive functioning of the staff or the identified patients and set serious limits on the growth of members of the organization, staff and patients alike. It urges organizations to conduct an ongoing self-scrutiny concerning their rational and irrational processes, as this self-examination is crucial to the health and vitality of the treatment offered to others. The book also promotes thinking of the conscious and unconscious dynamics of the group-as-a-whole to more completely inform organizational decisions concerning changes that may enhance the treatment of children and adolescents. When Love Is Not Enough serves as an invaluable guide for mental health professionals who treat children and adolescents, group therapists, hospital and clinic administrators, psychoanalysts, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
