WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY ADAM COHEN OF THE NEW YORK TIMES Perhaps Studs Terkel's best-known book, Working is a compelling look at jobs and the people who do them. Consisting of over one hundred interviews with everyone from a gravedigger to a studio head, from a policeman to a piano tuner, this book provides an enduring portrait of people's feelings about their working lives. "A powerful, original, indescribable and incredible book... Only an interviewer of genius, exploiting the tape recorder as hardly anyone else has done, could possibly have brought it forth." —Lewis Mumford "A magnificent book... a work of art. To read it is to hear America talking." —Boston Globe "Splendid... Important... Rich and fascinating... The people we meet are not digits in a poll but real people with real names who share their ancedotes, adventures, and aspirations with us." —Business Week "The talk in Working is good talk--earthy, passionate, honest, sometimes tender, sometimes crisp, juicy as reality, seasoned with experience." —Washington Post "Nothing could tell our children's children who and how and what we were the way Studs Terkel will. Is it possible the great American novelist is Terkel?" —Murray Kempton

From the creator of the Dear Businesslady column comes a fresh, proactive book with advice for women entering the workforce as well as those looking to move up the ladder. Everyone deals with some nonsense early in their career—whether it’s accepting a less-than-ideal position just to get a foot in the door, or having a manager who sleeps with his smartphone under his pillow and expects his staff to do the same. But how do young professionals know if the choices they’re making are moving them closer to their ultimate career goals? How do they know the answer when they ask themselves, “Is This Working?” Courtney Guerra, a.k.a. The Businesslady, knows how to set you on the path where you belong. In a fun-to-read Q&A format, this book focuses on situations young people are likely to encounter in the workplace, along with a set of strategies you can use to get through them. In her signature tone that has gained her hundreds of thousands of readers, Guerra discusses topics relevant to young professionals, like how to make the jump from “just a job” to a career in line with what you went to school for, and how to stay productive when working from home at an apartment filled with distractions. No matter what the scenario, The Businesslady has the answer to get you on the path to long-term career success.

The Intellectual Life Of The British Working Classes

Which books did the British working classes read--and how did they read them? How did they respond to canonical authors, penny dreadfuls, classical music, school stories, Shakespeare, Marx, Hollywood movies, imperialist propaganda, the Bible, the BBC, the Bloomsbury Group? What was the quality of their classroom education? How did they educate themselves? What was their level of cultural literacy: how much did they know about politics, science, history, philosophy, poetry, and sexuality? Who were the proletarian intellectuals, and why did they pursue the life of the mind? These intriguing questions, which until recently historians considered unanswerable, are addressed in this book. Using innovative research techniques and a vast range of unexpected sources, The Intellectual Life of the British Working Classes tracks the rise and decline of the British autodidact from the pre-industrial era to the twentieth century. It offers a new method for cultural historians--an "audience history" that recovers the responses of readers, students, theatergoers, filmgoers, and radio listeners. Jonathan Rose provides an intellectual history of people who were not expected to think for themselves, told from their perspective. He draws on workers’ memoirs, oral history, social surveys, opinion polls, school records, library registers, and newspapers. Through its novel and challenging approach to literary history, the book gains access to politics, ideology, popular culture, and social relationships across two centuries of British working-class experience.

Working Women In English Society 1300 1620

This study explores the diverse and changing ways in which English women participated in the market economy between 1300 and 1620. Marjorie Keniston McIntosh assesses women's activity by examining their engagement in the production and sale of goods, service work, credit relationships, and leasing of property. Using substantial evidence from equity court petitions and microhistorical studies of five market centres, she challenges both traditional views of a 'golden age' for women's work and more recent critiques. She argues that the level of women's participation in the market economy fluctuated considerably during this period under the pressure of demographic, economic, social, and cultural change. Although women always faced gender-based handicaps, some of them enjoyed wider opportunities during the generations following the plague of 1348–9. By the late sixteenth century, however, these opportunities had largely disappeared and their work was concentrated at the bottom of the economic system.

Working With Emotions In Psychotherapy

In previous books, Leslie S. Greenberg has demonstrated the importance of integrating emotional work into therapy and has laid out a compelling model of therapeutic change. Building on these foundations, WORKING WITH EMOTIONS IN PSYCHOTHERAPY sheds new light on the process and technique of intervention with specific emotions. Filled with illustrative case examples, the book shows clinicians how to identify a given emotion, discern its role in a client's self-understanding, and understand how its expression is furthering or inhibiting the client's progress. Of vital importance, the authors help readers think more differentially about emotions; to distinguish, for example, between avoided emotional pain and chronic dysfunctional bad feelings, between adaptive sadness and maladaptive depression, and between overcontrolled anger and underregulated rage. A conceptual overview and framework for intervention are delineated, and special attention is given throughout to the integration of emotion and cognition in therapeutic work.

This source book is for people working in areas affected by conflict and violence. Easy to use, well laid out, and including helpful visual materials, it provides a range of practical tools - processes, ideas, techniques -- for tackling conflict. These tools have been developed over a number of years by the organization, Responding to Conflict (RTC), in collaboration with practitioners from around the world. It is divided into 4 Parts: · Understanding: A guide to understanding conflict, including practical techniques for conflict analysis and the critical issues that must be taken into account - power, culture, identity, gender and rights.· Strategies: How to build effective strategies to address conflict, including how to influence policy within organizations.· Action: Intervening in situations of acute conflict; addressing the consequences; and working on the social fabric which conditions the emergence of conflict.· Evaluation: The skills involved in the necessary processes of evaluation and learning in order to improve future interventions.The book embodies and reflects the rich diversity of over 300 practitioners from some 70 countries who, in RTC Working with Conflict courses, have pooled their variegated experience and adapted these methods to suit a wide range of situations. Examples and cases are drawn from around the world - including Cambodia, Afghanistan, South Africa, Kenya, Northern Ireland and Colombia. The book highlights the options available to individuals and organizations; equips them with a basis on which they can plan what responses are possible; and strengthens their capacity to engage in useful interventions. The final chapter provides a list of key conflict-related and peace-building resources, including organizations, publications and websites.For all practitioners who are working in conflict-prone and unstable parts of the world in the fields of development, relief work, human rights, community relations, peace and reconciliation, this book should prove an invaluable support.
