Robert L. Simon, Cesar R. Torres, and Peter F. Hager
By Robert L. Simon, Cesar R. Torres (College at Brockport faculty member), Peter F. Hager (College at Brockport faculty member).
Short discussion of view of Scott Kretchmar (former College at Brockport faculty member) on pages 5-53.
Addressing both collegiate and professional sports, the updated edition of Fair Play: The Ethics of Sport explores the ethical presuppositions of competitive athletics and their connection both to ethical theory and to concrete moral dilemmas that arise in actual athletic competition. This fourth edition has been updated with new examples, including a discussion of Spygate by the New England Patriots and recent discoveries on the use of performance enhancing drugs by top athletes. Two additional authors, Cesar R. Torres and Peter F. Hager, bring to this edition a discussion of the moral issues involved in youth sports and the ethics of being a fan, as well as a fresh perspective on the theories of broad internalism and the quest for excellence. Furthermore, major criticisms of broad internalism by philosophers William J. Morgan and Scott Kretchmar add a new dimension to the discussion on the moral foundations of winning.
Etzel Cardena, Stephen Jay Lynn, Stanley Krippner, and Stuart Appelle
Edited by Etzel Cardena, Steven Jay Lynn, and Stanley Krippner.
Includes a chapter co-authored by former College at Brockport faculty member Stuart Appelle: Alien abduction experiences.
"In this revised and thoroughly updated edition of their classic text, the editors have invited experts to provide definitive reviews and analyses of a wide range of anomalous experiences, from commonly documented sensations and perceptions like synesthesia, lucid dreaming, out-of-body experiences, and auditory and visual hallucinations, to rarer and more seemingly inexplicable experiences such as anomalous healing, past-lives, near-death, mystical experiences, and even alien abductions ... The book makes a compelling case for the inclusion of these marginalized and under-recognized experiences as not merely incidental, but essential to our understanding of human psychology."--Publisher's description

"Instruction in Functional Assessment introduces learners to functional assessment (FA), which includes a variety of assessment approaches (indirect, observational, and experimental) for identifying the cause of an individual's challenging behavior for the purpose of designing effective treatments. FA is mandated by federal law and is a recognized empirically based approach to treatment of individuals with challenging behaviors (e.g., disruptive, self-injurious, and aggressive behaviors). Instruction in FA is essential for students who will one day enter professions as educators, psychologists, social workers, counselors, or mental health professionals. The purpose of this textbook is to provide instruction in FA skills for pre-professionals in the fields of education and psychology. This supplemental resource provides the context, background, and knowledge to facilitate students' acquisition of the methods, decision-making, and skills involved in conducting FA. Each chapter begins with focus questions designed to promote reflective thinking and ends with discussion questions. To promote application of FA in diverse situations and teach important lessons, case studies of individuals with challenging behaviors, interactive activities, and opportunities for practice are embedded in the chapters. Moreover, the text includes the ingredients to facilitate students' role play and rehearsal of appropriate FA skills while working in cooperative groups and using performance-based training"

Edited by Kathleen Hardesty Doig and Felicia Berger Sturzer.
Includes a chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Morag Martin: 'Augustine Debaralle, insensée, folle, charlatane, et enfin tout ce qu'il vous plaira': A Female Healer's Struggle for Medical Recognition in Napoleonic France.
Based on encyclopedias, medical journals, historical, and literary sources, this collection of interdisciplinary essays focuses on the intersection of women, gender, and disease in England and France. Diverse critical perspectives highlight contributions women made to the scientific and medical communities of the eighteenth century. In spite of obstacles encountered in spaces dominated by men, women became midwives, and wrote self-help manuals on women's health, hygiene, and domestic economy. Excluded from universities, they nevertheless contributed significantly to such fields as anatomy, botany, medicine, and public health. Enlightenment perspectives on the nature of the female body, childbirth, diseases specific to women, "gender," sex, "masculinity" and "femininity," adolescence, and sexual differentiation inform close readings of English and French literary texts. Treatises by Montpellier vitalists influenced intellectuals and physicians such as Nicolas Chambon, Pierre Cabanis, Jacques-Louis Moreau de la Sarthe, Jules-Joseph Virey, and Theophile de Bordeu. They impacted the exchange of letters and production of literary works by Julie de Lespinasse, Francoise de Graffigny, Nicolas Chamfort, Mary Astell, Frances Burney, Lawrence Sterne, Eliza Haywood, and Daniel Defoe. In our post-modern era, these essays raise important questions regarding women as subjects, objects, and readers of the philosophical, medical, and historical discourses that framed the project of enlightenment."

"The Journey to Wholeness book will literally take the reader on a journey into the diverse lives of 13 women with disabilities. This is a one of a kind book as there is no other compilation of women’s voices like this one. These women come from different backgrounds, experience different barriers and triumphs, and find joys in many unexpected places. Their disabilities range from Deafness, to MS, to Fibromyalgia to visual impairments, to rheumatoid arthritis and spina bifida. Some are born with their disabilities, some acquire theirs quickly or progressively over time. Some continue working, and some do not work after their disability is diagnosed. Some have children and some do not. Some are religious and some find spirituality in the outdoors, or by volunteering. One thing for sure is that these women are brutally honest, sincere and resilient.
The reader is asked to take this ride with the contributors and learn that people with disabilities do not want to be pitied, or excluded. Disability can be a pathway to new opportunities, friendships, leadership opportunities, hobbies, and experiences. Disability requires a new way of thinking, but can be navigated and embraced when the woman see the possibilities and opportunities that they create."--Publisher

"La manera en que a lo largo del tiempo ha ido cambiando la visión de los maquis, las fuerzas represoras y la lucha guerrillera, se pone de manifiesto mediante el análisis y la clasificación de cerca de doscientas obras en cinco perŕodos que abarcan desde 1936 hasta 2010. Las representaciones de cada período ilustran las relaciones existentes entre el poder y una producción textual que tiene como objetivo la difusión de un determinado discurso sobre la lucha guerrillera, mostrando así las prioridades y preocupaciones de los diferentes actores en el contexto socio-político de cada etapa. Finalmente, se analiza la memoria colectiva y traumática reflejada en las obras así como el efecto que el tratamiento de la lucha guerrillera tiene sobre la memoria de espectadores y lectores."--Publisher

By Takashi Nishiyama (College at Brockport faculty member).
Naval, aeronautic, and mechanical engineers played a powerful part in the military buildup of Japan in the early and mid-twentieth century. They belonged to a militaristic regime and embraced the importance of their role in it. Takashi Nishiyama examines the impact of war and peace on technological transformation during the twentieth century. He is the first to study the paradoxical and transformative power of Japan’s defeat in World War II through the lens of engineering.
Nishiyama asks: How did authorities select and prepare young men to be engineers? How did Japan develop curricula adequate to the task (and from whom did the country borrow)? Under what conditions? What did the engineers think of the planes they built to support Kamikaze suicide missions? But his study ultimately concerns the remarkable transition these trained engineers made after total defeat in 1945. How could the engineers of war machines so quickly turn to peaceful construction projects such as designing the equipment necessary to manufacture consumer products? Most important, they developed new high-speed rail services, including the Shinkansen Bullet Train. What does this change tell us not only about Japan at war and then in peacetime but also about the malleability of engineering cultures?
Nishiyama aims to counterbalance prevalent Eurocentric/Americentric views in the history of technology. Engineering War and Peace in Modern Japan, 1868–1964 sets the historical experience of one country’s technological transformation in a larger international framework by studying sources in six different languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. The result is a fascinating read for those interested in technology, East Asia, and international studies. Nishiyama's work offers lessons to policymakers interested in how a country can recover successfully after defeat.
By Kimberly Schutte, The College at Brockport faculty member.
For British aristocratic women from the beginning of the Tudor era to the end of the First World War, there was nothing more important than making a suitable marriage to a groom of high rank. Failure could well have catastrophic consequences. It was the marriages of these noble daughters, far more than the unions of their brothers, which ensured a family's continued place within the titled ranks. Through an analysis of the marriage patterns of thousands of aristocratic women as well as an examination of diaries, letters, and memoirs, Schutte demonstrates that the sense of rank identity as manifested in these women's marriages remained remarkably stable for centuries, until it was finally shattered by the First World War.

A Social, Economic and Political History of the Negro Leagues Era for Teachers of Social Studies and American History
Between the end of Reconstruction in the 1880s and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, the players, managers and owners of the Negro Leagues empowered and inspired the African-American community to resist Jim Crow. Through the lens of baseball, Before Jackie presents this less familiar history of the era's rich tradition of activism to engage students with stories of African Americans' creativity and courage. These stories will especially appeal to African-American students who too often feel that U.S. social studies and American history has little to do with them.
Annotated and illustrated throughout, it includes lesson plans that allow students to draw on a wide variety of resources and gives teachers valuable assistance in making social studies accessible, relevant and even fun for teaching at all grade levels.

This timely and engaging text offers students a social perspective on food, food practices, and the modern food system. It engages readers’ curiosity by highlighting several paradoxes: how food is both mundane and sacred, reveals both distinction and conformity, and, in the contemporary global era, comes from everywhere but nowhere in particular. With a social constructionist framework, the book provides an empirically rich, multi-faceted, and coherent introduction to this fascinating field.
Each chapter begins with a vivid case study, proceeds through a rich discussion of research insights, and ends with discussion questions and suggested resources. Chapter topics include food’s role in socialization, identity, work, health and social change, as well as food marketing and the changing global food system. In synthesizing insights from diverse fields of social inquiry, the book addresses issues of culture, structure, and social inequality throughout.
Written in a lively style, this book will be both accessible and revealing to beginning and intermediate students alike.
