Music in Contemporary Indian Film : Memory, Voice, Identity provides a rich and detailed look into the unique dimensions of music in Indian film. Music is at the center of Indian cinema, and India's film music industry has a far-reaching impact on popular, folk, and classical music across the subcontinent and the South Asian diaspora. In twelve essays, written by an international array of scholars, this book explores the social, cultural, and musical aspects of the industry, including both the traditional center of "Bollywood" and regional film-making. Concentrating on films and songs created in contemporary, post-liberalization India, this book will appeal to classes in film studies, media studies, and world music, as well as all fans of Indian films.

By Carl Davila, College at Brockport faculty member.
In this unique edition, Carl Davila takes an original approach to the texts of the modern Moroccan Andalusian music tradition. This volume offers a literary-critical analysis and English translation of the texts of this nūba, studies their linguistic and thematic features, and compares them with key manuscripts and published anthologies. Four introductory chapters and four appendices discuss the role of orality in the tradition and the manuscripts that lie behind the print anthologies. Two supplements cross-reference key poetic images in English and Arabic, and provide information on known authors of the texts. This groundbreaking contribution will interest scholars and students of pre-modern Arabic poetry, muwashshaḥāt, Andalusian music traditions, Arabic Studies, orality, and sociolinguistics.

Writing in College is designed for students who have largely mastered high-school level conventions of formal academic writing and are now moving beyond the five-paragraph essay to more advanced engagement with text. It is well suited to composition courses or first-year seminars and valuable as a supplemental or recommended text in other writing-intensive classes. It provides a friendly, down-to-earth introduction to professors’ goals and expectations, demystifying the norms of the academy and how they shape college writing assignments. Each of the nine chapters can be read separately, and each includes suggested exercises to bring the main messages to life.
Students will find in Writing in College a warm invitation to join the academic community as novice scholars and to approach writing as a meaningful medium of thought and communication. With concise discussions, clear multidisciplinary examples, and empathy for the challenges of student life, Guptill conveys a welcoming tone. In addition, each chapter includes Student Voices: peer-to-peer wisdom from real SUNY Brockport students about their strategies for and experiences with college writing.
While there are many affordable writing guides available, most focus only on sentence-level issues or, conversely, a broad introduction to making the transition. Writing In College, in contrast, provides both a coherent frame for approaching writing assignments and indispensable advice for effective organization and expression.

[Edited] by C.J. Pascoe and Tristan Bridges, College at Brockport faculty member.
"...a comprehensive and contemporary reader for the growing field of men's and masculinities studies. It takes a conceptual approach by covering the wide range of scholarship being done on masculinities beyond the model of hegemonic masculinity. C.J. Pascoe and Tristan Bridges extend the boundaries of the field and provide a new framework for understanding masculinities studies. Rather than taking a topics-based approach to masculinity, Exploring Masculinities offers an innovative conceptual approach that enables students to study a given phenomenon from a variety of perspectives. It divides up the field in ways that provide accessible introductions to complex debates and key intra- and interdisciplinary distinctions. The book provides a portable set of conceptual tools on which scholars and students can rely to analyze masculinities in different contexts, time periods, and embodiments."--Back cover

By Natalie Sarrazin, associate professor at The College at Brockport
Children are inherently musical. They respond to music and learn through music. Music expresses children’s identity and heritage, teaches them to belong to a culture, and develops their cognitive well-being and inner self worth. As professional instructors, childcare workers, or students looking forward to a career working with children, we should continuously search for ways to tap into children’s natural reservoir of enthusiasm for singing, moving and experimenting with instruments. But how, you might ask? What music is appropriate for the children I’m working with? How can music help inspire a well-rounded child? How do I reach and teach children musically? Most importantly perhaps, how can I incorporate music into a curriculum that marginalizes the arts?
This book explores a holistic, artistic, and integrated approach to understanding the developmental connections between music and children. This book guides professionals to work through music, harnessing the processes that underlie music learning, and outlining developmentally appropriate methods to understand the role of music in children’s lives through play, games, creativity, and movement. Additionally, the book explores ways of applying music-making to benefit the whole child, i.e., socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and linguistically.

Edited by Richard Bailey and Margaret Talbot.
Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member César R. Torres: More fulfilling lives through sport : an intersubjective justification for balancing elite sport and sport-for-all.
Sport is often perceived as being divided into two separate domains: mass participation and elite . In many countries, policy and funding in these two fields are managed by separate agencies, and investment is often seen as a choice between the two. Elite Sport and Sport-for-All explores the points of connection and sources of tension between elite and mass participation sport. The book’s multi-disciplinary and international line-up of contributors seeks to define, examine, and develop solutions to this problematic relationship.
Drawing on research and case studies from around the world―with examples from Denmark, Canada, South Africa and Israel―the book explores key contemporary issues including: does effective talent identification require depth of participation? ; do elite performances inspire greater participation? ; the role of the Paralympic movement in mass participation and elite sport ; and the economic aspects of their co-existence.
The first study of its kind, Elite Sport and Sport-for-All addresses a central dichotomy in sport policy and, as such, is important reading for all students, researchers, policy-makers or administrators working in sport development and policy.

This first-ever study of rape in modern American drama examines portrayals of rape, raped women and rapists in 36 plays written between 1970 and 2007, the period during which the feminist movement made rape a matter of public discourse. These dramas reveal much about sexuality and masculine and feminine identity in the United States. The author traces the impact of second-wave feminism, antifeminist backlash, third-wave feminism and postfeminism on the dramatic depiction of rape. The prevalence of commonly accepted rape myths-that women who dress provocatively invite sexual assault, for example-is well documented, along with equally frequent examples which dispute these myths. - Publisher

Pensando la Educación Física Como Área de Conocimiento : Problematizaciones Pedagógicas del Sujeto y el Cuerpo
Adrián Ferreria and César R. Torres
Compiled by Adrián Ferreira.
Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member César Torres: El Equipo justo..
Pensando la Educación Física como área de conocimiento ha sido producto de las investigaciones, artículos y ponencias presentadas en las Conferencias Académicas -- del período 2013-2015 -- producidas por el Seminario Permanente de Investigación del Laboratorio de Investigaciones Pedagógicas de la Actividad Física y el Deporte, del ISEF Nº 1 "Dr. Enrique Romero Brest". El texto se dirige a los estudiantes, profesores, licenciados e investigadores de Educación Física así como a todo actor de la cultura corporal del movimiento. Ellibro presenta una pluralidad y diversidad de producciones que relacionan a la educación, la Educación Física y el sujeto, reconociendo dos de sus propiedades o aspectos distintivos: la diferencia y la singularidad. Compone un colectivo de enfoques y perspectivas que incluyen y se involucran con problematizaciones pedagógicas y abordajes epistémicos del campo disciplinar de la Educación Física. En tal sentido, aspira a priorizar preguntas que pueden ser pensadas desde múltiples dimensiones, fundamentalmente, a partir del análisis del sujeto y el cuerpo en los discursos y las prácticas de la formación docente en Educación Física. A lo largo de sus veinticuatro artículos, producidos por docentes, académicos e investigadores reconocidos nacional e internacionalmente, mantiene un grado de complejidad como también de consistencia e inconformismo creativo en el camino de indagar y abordar nuevas preguntas y problemas. Pretende así responder al interés en ampliar las miradas sobre el pensar en movimiento, desde la indagación permanente, hacia nuevas teorizaciones. Quienes transitan el estudio, la profesión o la investigación del campo de la Educación Física, aun desde distintas ópticas e intereses, encontrarán en esta obra artículos de su genuino interés, elaborados con el objetivo de que el lector pueda, en su práctica, dar cuenta y reformular lo construido.

Designed in accordance with the Conversation Theory of Gordon Pask and presents the complicated topic of statistics in an understandable manner for entry level nurses. The underlying principle of this design is to give students the opportunity to practice statistics while they learn statistics. The text accomplishes this through the inclusion of relevant clinical examples followed by end of chapter application exercises. The Second Edition focuses on topics around Nursing Practice and was selected based on a review of the current statistical techniques used most frequently in nursing literature. The top ten statistical techniques used throughout nursing are covered very clearly in the text and without any irrelevant complicating concepts. This text meets the needs of both undergraduate nursing research students who need to learn how to critically analyze literature as well as graduate DNP students who must also be familiar with statistics for nursing in accordance with the rigor of the DNP program.

By Nancy Kress, College at Brockport alumna and former faculty member.
Nancy Kress, winner of multiple awards for her science fiction and fantasy, ranges through space and time in this stunning collection. Anne Boleyn is snatched from her time stream--with unexpected consequences for two worlds. A far-future spaceship brings religion to a planet that already harbors shocking natives. People genetically engineered to never need to sleep clash with those who do. A scientific expedition to the center of the galaxy discovers more than anyone bargained for. A woman finds that ''people like us'' does not mean what she thinks it does.
Praised for both her hard SF and her complex characters, Nancy Kress brings a unique viewpoint to twenty-one stories, the best of a long and varied career that has won her five Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Nursing Care at the End of Life: What Every Clinician Should Know should be an essential component of basic educational preparation for the professional registered nurse student. Recent studies show that only one in four nurses feel confident in caring for dying patients and their families and less than 2% of overall content in nursing textbooks is related to end-of-life care, despite the tremendous growth in palliative and end-of-life care programs across the country. The purpose of this textbook is to provide an indepth look at death and dying in this country, including the vital role of the nurse in assisting patients and families along the journey towards the end of life. There is an emphasis throughout the book on the simple, yet understated value of effective interpersonal communication between the patient and clinician. The text provides a basic foundation of understanding death and dying, including a brief historical examination of some main conceptual models associated with how patients cope with impending loss. An overview of illness trajectories and models of care, such as hospice and palliative care are discussed. Lastly, the latest evidence-based approaches for pain and symptom management, ethical concerns, cultural considerations, care at the time of death, and grief/bereavement are examined. The goal of this text is to foster the necessary skills for nurses to provide compassionate care to individuals who are nearing the end of life and their families. Every chapter contains a “What You Should Know” section which highlights and reinforces foundational concepts.

Edited by Mike McNamee and William J. Morgan.
Includes chapter by former College at Brockport faculty member R. Scott "Dedicated to Warren Fraleigh, in gratitude for his monumental contribution to the founding and development of the philosophy of sport."--page [v]
"... a landmark publication in sport studies. It goes further than any book has before in tracing the contours of the discipline of the philosophy of sport and in surveying the core themes, approaches and theories that form its disciplinary fabric. The book explores the ways in which an understanding of philosophy can inform our understanding of important prevailing issues in sport. Edited by two of the most significant figures in the development of the philosophy of sport, Mike McNamee and Bill Morgan, and with contributions from many of the world’s leading sport philosophers, this is an invaluable companion reference volume for any course in the social scientific study of sport, and an essential addition to the bookshelf of any serious scholar of the philosophy and/or ethics of sport."--Back cover

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.

"Space and Antarctic exploration were the most dramatic endeavors of the Cold War. Employing the latest science and technology to explore the remaining frontiers, these programs were designed to stimulate an American century of freedom and prosperity for humankind. However, these programs came to represent distinctive aspects of the ideal U.S. leadership of the 'Free World.' Frontiers for the American Century : Outer Space, Antarctica, and Cold War Nationalism by James Spiller explores the cultural politics, nationalism, and history that led these programs to different paths of celestial pioneering and environmental guardianship"

"Big game hunting was an iconic activity in British colonial Africa that has long been associated with the celebration of rugged, white manhood and imperial dominance over African people and landscapes. On the ground, however, the pursuit of game could look quite different. This book recovers the multiplicity of meanings and experiences embedded in colonial hunting by examining how African people leveraged British hunters' dependence on their labor and knowledge to direct the economic and social impacts of imperial hunting, and how they integrated it into African systems and networks. In addition, this book examines the experience and representation of British women hunters. By analyzing hunting as it was practised on the ground and represented in Britain by a broad range of actors, Hunting Africa sheds new light on the gendering of imperial hunting, the power it symbolized, and the image of Africa promoted through it."--Back cover

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
Alan L. Carsrud and Malin Brannbeck
Edited by Alan Carsrud (College at Brockport former faculty member) and Malin Brännback.
"This thought provoking book builds on existing research traditions that make small business, entrepreneurship and family business a resource rich arena for study. It steps back to ask fundamental questions that every researcher should consider prior to engaging in data collection. It focuses on topics that have traditionally frustrated researchers including experimental methods in small business research, scale development, control variables and language issues in cross cultural research.
The distinguished authors also address subjects such as theory development and testing in entrepreneurship, as well as determining if progress in research has been made and how that can be measured. Critically, many of the chapters highlight ways in which research can be both practical yet theoretically important.
Bringing together quantitative and qualitative techniques and taking an investigative approach almost totally ignored in entrepreneurship research, this unique volume will be of special interest to anyone studying small and family businesses or entrepreneurship and business."--Back cover
