This book encapsulates a multinational group of scholars' combined expertise and perspectives on domestic/local and international/global marketing arenas. With its 'glocal' perspective, the book presents a wide range of subjects important to business in times of crisis. The theme, 'thinking globally and acting locally', focuses on a range of topics, such as marketing strategy, early internationalisation and born globals, traditions and cultures, the internationalisation of business and services, relationships, alliances, entrepreneurs and purchasing, marketing ethics and ethical conventions, macromarketing, and the effects of terrorism and climate change. Although written primarily for students, scholars and practitioners, the book also forms an important resource for anyone with an interest in domestic/local and international/global marketing arenas. In short, it provides a solid foundation for an enriched scholarly and professional understanding of thinking globally and acting locally (ie: 'glocal' marketing).

This unusual book is more than just the memoir of a distinguished career. It is a history of the twentieth century reflected in the life and work of one individual. It begins in 1938 with a year in the life of an eight year old Viennese Jewish boy as he experiences the worst and best of humanity, from Nazi persecution to rescue by strangers through the Kindertransports. It tells of his encounters with an English schooling system at its worst and best and of his formative years. But this is not a story of one person’s liberation. That little refugee boy grew up to contribute to the liberation of hundreds of thousands of people world-wide. Influenced by his own early experiences, Peter Mittler has spent a lifetime committed to the human rights of people with intellectual disabilities. From their liberation from the big institutions left over from the nineteenth century, to their inclusion in shaping the 2008 United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, it tells the story of a dynamic and powerful human rights movement. It is perhaps the last great untold story, the story of how persons with intellectual disabilities finally gained the right to respect, value and autonomy and of the long struggle for schooling, access to work and their own front door key. This memoir weaves professional memories and accounts of collaboration across the global village with anecdotes and travellers’ tales to reflect a global perspective from someone who was there at every twist and turn, working with families, teachers, researchers, governments and self-advocates for over 60 years to influence legislation and drive lasting reform. EXTRACTS FROM BOOK REVIEWS Dame Phillipa Russell (from foreword) Socrates is reputed to have said that each generation produces a very small number of 'hero innovators' who change the way in which society values its citizens. For me and for many others, Peter Mittler is indeed one of those 'hero innovators', radically changing both national and international attitudes towards people with intellectual and other disabilities and their families. Duncan Mitchell British Journal of Learning Disabilities Peter Mittler is one of the giants of learning disability in the second half of the twentieth century. It is rare to find such a wonderfully understated page turner. Ingrid Lunt, Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs The book succeeds in going far beyond an autobiography… is easy to read, and carries the reader through with the strong narrative. Paul Williams Community Living What an incredibly full and constructive life! The book is very well written and highly readable. David Mitchell, International Journal of Disability, Development and Education Peter Mittler has the happy knack of being able to synthesise disparate material in an interesting manner, with an eye to the broader philosophical context. This book is a fitting summation of one man’s personal journey to address inequalities, particularly as they apply to those among us who have disabilities. Chris Cullen, History of Psychology and Philosophy This is a fascinating book, which chronicles the life journey of Peter Mittler, a leading exponent of evidence-based services and social inclusion for people with intellectual impairments. More than this, though, it is a history of the slow and often halting progress which has been made in the United Kingdom and throughout the

Thinking Globally and Acting Locally is a set of “out of the box” solutions to the economic crisis. It is based upon the idea that taking a more global view of the world, coupled with taking personal responsibility, is the best chance we have as a nation. It is a call to arms to start discussing, and ultimately, taking action--actions which will protect us from the cycles of boom and bust will lead to a more sustainable and financially secure world.

It is often assumed that social movements, such as that of labour, will simply be overwhelmed by the changes brought about by globalisation. This volume points to this conclusion as at best premature and possibly also misguided.

Creating Experiential Learning Opportunities For Language Learners

While much research has been done on experiential learning opportunities in study abroad settings, there are fewer publications devoted to experiential learning in the domestic context. This volume aims to fill that gap by providing a collection of chapters highlighting research-based innovations in experiential learning in domestic settings. The book focuses on three experiential learning contexts: community engagement experiences, professional engagement experiences and other unique experiential contexts such as language camps and houses. The collection focuses on the US context but the research projects and curricular innovations described here can serve as models for educators working in other local contexts and will encourage interested practitioners to explore experiential learning opportunities in their local areas. It will also provide the reader with a better understanding of this growing field of inquiry and should appeal to graduate students and researchers who are interested in experiential language learning.
