"Ruth: Bridges and Boundaries" is a literary close reading of the text as a bridge between the anarchic period of the Judges and the monarchic age that begins with the birth of David, as reflected through Ruth's absorption process within Bethlehemite society. This bridge is constructed from three main axes: the theological perception that human actions have the power to shape and advance reality; the moral-legal perception that the spirit of the law must be privileged over the letter of the law and social conventions; and the principle that the institute of monarchy must be based upon human compassion. The commentary traces the narrative sequence through the paradigm of this three-fold cord, showing how these threads are woven throughout the book. This innovative reading is illustrated with an unprecedented psychological analysis of Ruth as a narrative of transition, using modern psychological theories. This contemporary yet textually faithful literary commentary offers new insight into the inner workings of the text of Ruth as literary masterpiece. Academic yet accessible, this work provides tools for readers of Ruth and the field of biblical narrative in general.

Encounters Between Foreign Relations Law And International Law

Foreign relations law and public international law are two closely related academic fields that tend to speak past each other. As this innovative volume shows, the two are closely interrelated and depend on each other for their mutual construction and identity. A better understanding of this relationship is of vital importance for upholding important constitutional values like democracy, the rule of law and the protection of human rights, while enabling states to engage in meaningful forms of international cooperation. The book takes a close look at the encounters between the two fields and offers perspectives for a constructive engagement between the two. Collectively, the contributions argue that the delimitation between the two fields occurs in a hybrid zone of interaction which requires both bridges and boundaries: bridges for the construction of the relationship between the two fields, and boundaries for preserving key normative expectations of both domestic and international law.

Drawing on group position theory, settler colonial studies, critical race theory, and Indigenous theorizing, Canada at a Crossroads emphasizes the social psychological barriers to transforming white settler ideologies and practices and working towards decolonization. After tracing settlers’ sense of group superiority and entitlement to historical and ongoing colonial processes, Denis illustrates how contemporary Indigenous and settler residents think about and relate to one another. He highlights how, despite often having close cross-group relationships, residents maintain conflicting perspectives on land, culture, history, and treaties, and Indigenous residents frequently experience interpersonal and systemic racism. Denis then critically assesses the promise and pitfalls of commonly proposed solutions, including intergroup contact, education, apologies, and collective action, and concludes that genuine reconciliation will require radically restructuring Canadian society and perpetually fulfilling treaty responsibilities.

Leadership For A Fractured World

Leaders today—whether in corporations or associations, nonprofits or nations—face massive, messy, multidimensional problems. No one person or group can possibly solve them—they require the broadest possible cooperation. But, says Harvard scholar Dean Williams, our leadership models are still essentially tribal: individuals with formal authority leading in the interest of their own group. In this deeply needed new book, he outlines an approach that enables leaders to transcend internal and external boundaries and help people to collaborate, even people over whom they technically have no power. Drawing on what he's learned from years of working in countries and organizations around the world, Williams shows leaders how to approach the delicate and creative work of boundary spanning, whether those boundaries are cultural, organizational, political, geographic, religious, or structural. Sometimes leaders themselves have to be the ones who cross the boundaries between groups. Other times, a leader's job is to build relational bridges between divided groups or even to completely break down the boundaries that block collaborative problem solving. By thinking about power and authority in a different way, leaders will become genuine change agents, able to heal wounds, resolve conflicts, and bring a fractured world together.

The present study explored the experiences of international students in regard to their uses of social media for learning and their resulting perceptions of connection to peers in their first semester at an Australian university. This mixed methods study included volunteer sampling of international students from language backgrounds other than English. A survey was conducted of participants' social media uses prior to beginning their degree (n equals 43), and followed with interviews during their first semester to explore their experiences of using social media for educational purposes (n equals 28). The resulting data revealed how the use of social media for learning presents both challenges and affordances for facilitating connection between international students through bridges, boundaries, and hybrid spaces. It is argued that informal student-directed uses of social media to conduct peer interactions for learning purposes is an active space that is impacting on international students' perceptions of connections to classmates. Where collaborative interactions can be facilitated, these situations can lead to students making connections, or bridges, for learning. However, where only cooperative interactions take place, or students are using new digital spaces that they are uncomfortable in, students can be left feeling disconnected through the visible boundaries from the peers that they are learning with. Finally, where bridges can be made through social media, there is the possibility for hybrid spaces to develop that can accommodate both the academic and social lives of students. The recommendations from the findings are that classroom modelling of collaborative forms of online interaction that build connection would assist in students being better able to create similar conditions in their own informal interactions with classmates. Further research of international students' experiences beyond their first semester of university would broaden understanding of how the use of social media for learning impacts on a sense of connection.

Time and space provide the coordinates for the exploration of psychological phenomena and, more specifically, of what takes place in the psychoanalyst's consulting room: in the minds of the two participants, as well as in the complex relationship that develops between them. Boundaries and Bridges consists of eleven chapters covering, among others, such topics as: the development of a sense of time in children, the temporal dimension of the psychoanalytic setting, the function of the couch in the therapeutic process, the importance of silence, and of sounds, in human development and in the analytic relationship itself. Illustrated by the case material about a "replacement child" and by several clinical vignettes, the book, as stated in its thought-provoking Introduction, is the author's attempt to distil some of the ideas which, in the course of almost forty years of analytic work, have emerged as foundations to his thinking and practice.

Women engineers have been in the public limelight for decades, yet we have surprisingly little historically grounded understanding of the patterns of employment and education of women in this field. Most studies are either policy papers or limited to statistical analyses. Moreover, the scant historical research so far available emphasizes the individual, single and unique character of those women working in engineering, often using anecdotal evidence but ignoring larger issues like the patterns of the labour market and educational institutions. Crossing Boundaries, Building Bridges offers answers to the question why women engineers have required special permits to pass through the male guarded gates of engineering and examines how they have managed this. It explores the differences and similarities between women engineers in nine countries from a gender point of view. Through case studies the book considers the mechanisms of exclusion and inclusion of women engineers.
