Edited by Thomas Benedict Lambert and David W. Rollason.
Includes chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Stefan Jurasinski, Madness and responsibility in Anglo-Saxon England.
That kings, prelates and even lowly freemen were, under certain specified conditions, capable of offering protection or “peace” to others, usually their inferiors, is relatively well known. That a breach of this protection might entitle, or indeed oblige, the protector to take action against the violator is similarly well understood. However, this protective dynamic has rarely received direct scholarly attention, despite its being evident in an extraordinary range of contexts. The emotional aspects of protection - the honour and love associated with the bond it creates, and the shame and anger that accompany its breach - resonate in both heroic and chivalric ideals, whilst in legal fiction at least, the king’s protection or peace would come to underpin the common law of trespass. Such a broad sweep, taking in social, legal, religious and cultural elements, suggests that protection as a concept may have a wider significance than its marginal role in current historiography would indicate. Indeed, the influence of protection both in forming social bonds and in providing a framework for the legitimate use of force suggests that the concept could serve as a valuable counterpoint to more traditional “institutional” understandings of power. This book explores peace and protection as a fundamental motor of medieval society, across a broad geographical and chronological span; brings together literary, legal and historical studies making use of a wide range of approaches; and focuses scholarly attention as never before on the concept of peace and protection viewed in relation to kings and lords, charity and mercy, and the action of feud and vendetta.

Psyche and the Literary Muses focuses on the psychology of literature from an empirical point of view, rather than the more typical psychoanalytic position, and concentrates on literary content rather than readers or writers. The book centers on the author's quantitative studies of brief literary and quasi-literary forms, ranging from titles of short stories and names of literary characters to cliches and quotations from literary sources, in demonstrating their contribution to the topics of learning, perception, thinking, emotions, creativity, and especially person perception and aging.

A response to the prominent Methodist historian David Hempton's call to analyze women's experience within Methodism, this is the first book to deal with British Methodist women preachers over the entire nineteenth century, with special emphasis on the Primitive Methodists and Bible Christians.
The author covers women preachers in Wesley's lifetime, the reason why some Methodist sects allowed women to preach and others did not, and the experience of Bible Christian and Primitive Methodist female evangelists before 1850. She also describes the many other ways in which women supported their chapel communities.
The second half of the book includes the careers of mid-century women revivalists, the opportunities home and foreign missions offered for female evangelism, the emergence of deaconess evangelists and Sisters of the People in late century, and the brief revival of female itinerancy among the Bible Christians.
This book on the philosophy of education and teaching by past College President MacVicar was first published in 1892.

By Morag Martin, College at Brockport faculty member.
Morag Martin’s history of the cosmetic industry in France examines the evolution of popular tastes and standards of beauty during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. As the French citizenry rebelled against the excesses of the aristocracy, there was a parallel shift in consumer beauty practices. Powdered wigs, alabaster white skin, and rouged cheeks disappeared in favor of a more natural and simple style.
Selling Beauty challenges expectations about past fashions and offers a unique look into consumer culture and business practices. Martin introduces readers to the social and economic world of cosmetic production and consumption, recounts criticisms against the use of cosmetics from a variety of voices, and examines how producers and retailers responded to quickly evolving fashions.
Martin shows that the survival of the industry depended on its ability to find customers among the emerging working and middle classes. But the newfound popularity of cosmetics raised serious questions. Critics—from radical philosophes to medical professionals—complained that the use of cosmetics was a threat to social morals and questioned the healthfulness of products that contained arsenic, mercury, and lead. Cosmetic producers embraced these withering criticisms, though, skillfully addressing these concerns in their marketing campaigns, reassuring consumers of the moral and physical safety of their products.
Rather than disappearing along with the Old Regime, the commerce of cosmetics, reimagined and redefined, flourished in the early 19th century, as political ideals and Enlightenment philosophies radically altered popular sentiment.

Many coaches don't provide any type of guidance manual helping players understand team policies, rules, and responsibilities. This is especially true at lower levels of competition. This book will benefit organized programs, those wishing to improve individual skills, basic knowledge of the game, and parents working with their children on their backyard courts.

Lynn Hudson Parsons
This book's title is a bit deceptive. Parsons [College at Brockport emeritus] has written an excellent study of US national politics during the 1820s, with the 1828 election serving as the culmination of the transformations in both the ideology and partisan tactics that defined the decade. The beginning chapters provide excellent biographical summaries of Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams. In a concise yet thorough and engaging manner, the middle chapters discuss the "Era of Good Feelings" and the controversial election of Adams to the presidency in 1824. The concluding section treats the election of 1828 and the aftermath in its various aspects; issues, ideology, the rise of the partisan press, and the advent of general electioneering hoopla all come in for examination. Ultimately, Parsons concludes that these forces were all better understood and more adeptly deployed by the Jacksonians, that "the tectonic plates of politics had shifted, and Andrew Jackson was the first to benefit" (p. 183). Adroitly synthesizing an array of scholarship, Parsons's account stands as the definitive treatment of not only this watershed election, but the political culture in which it unfolded.

By Natalie Sarrazin, college at Brockport faculty member.
Indian Music for the Classroom presents the different styles of Indian music and their cultural contexts, with chapters on Indian culture and sound, Indian classical vocal and instrumental music, folk music, film music, and traditional popular musics. From Hindi-Pop to bhangra to the Urdu ghazal, the book covers them all, as well as national songs, children's songs, and the devotional bhajan. With lists of vocabulary and concepts, musical transcriptions, photos, and resources, teachers can use the text in their classrooms immediately. More than 53 lesson activities with listening charts, composition exercises, reflective questions, and other creative ideas bring the music of India alive and align with the National Standards. In addition, 48 musical transcriptions of teaching examples, drum rhythms, and songs make it easy to teach authentically. Sarrazin starts with the fundamentals-such as swara (pitch), sargam (Indian solfège), and that (basic scales)-and then moves on to Indian music notation, improvisation, and Indian instruments. She draws students into the culture with Indian legends and folk stories. Internet resources are provided so teachers can find authentic sound clips and order movies discussed in the book, as well as other resources. Most songs include English lyrics with the Hindi, and film and national songs contain piano or Orff accompaniments appropriate for concert performance.

The purpose of The Corporeal Turn is to document in a single text the impressive array of investigations possible with respect to the body and bodily life, and to show that, whatever the specific topic being examined, it is a matter of fathoming and elucidating complex and subtle structures of animate meaning. The corporeal turn is envisioned as an ever-expanding, continuous, and open-ended spiral of inquiry in which deeper and deeper understandings are forged, understandings that in each instance themselves call out for deeper and deeper inquiries. The first thirteen essays have already been published as distinct articles. The two new essays constituting the final two chapters are testimony to this open-ended spiral of inquiry.

The baby boomers -- those born between 1946 and 1964 -- are a generation that consists of nearly 76 million Americans. Beginning in 2011, this large and influential population will begin their transition out of the workforce. As baby boomers enter retirement, they will be looking for opportunities in fitness, sports, outdoors, arts and cultural events, and other activities that suit their vibrant lifestyles. With their varied life experiences, values, and expectations, baby boomers are predicted to redefine the meaning of recreation and leisure programming for mature adults.
Though many researchers have forecast the boomers' impact on the future, only Leisure Programming for Baby Boomers addresses key information that recreation and leisure professionals need in order to make program decisions with baby boomers in mind. The authors combine their research, programming, and marketing expertise to provide insights into the values and lifestyle choices of boomers and offer programming and marketing strategies to reach this large and influential population.
Leisure Programming for Baby Boomers will help you move beyond the traditional offerings of bingo, art classes, and social dances to capture the attention and imagination of your baby boomer community. This comprehensive guide offers these features: An in-depth review of current research to help you understand the values, interests, and needs of the boomer generation ; Guidance in adopting a “boomer lens” so you can more easily recognize the opportunities in working with this group and create and market programs that appeal to the values of this unique generation ; The Cochran Baby Boomer Quiz, a tool that can be used not only in assessing the programming preferences of the boomers in your community, but also in testing your staff's knowledge of boomers and preparing them to work more effectively with this group ; Strategies, guidelines, and ready-to-use ideas for boomer-specific programming in arts and culture, outdoor recreation, education, wellness, and tourism ; Marketing templates and strategies that will attract boomers and keep them coming to your programs.
With Leisure Programming for Baby Boomers, you'll discover what distinguishes the baby boomer generation from previous generations in regard to their demographic makeup, gender differences, cultural influences, brand loyalty, consumer behavior, and spending patterns. Based on current research, Leisure Programming for Baby Boomers explains the boomer generation in terms of five value areas specific to recreation and leisure programming: cultural influences, healthy aging and society, retirement, leisure pursuits, and economic levels. Using this knowledge, you'll learn how to consider these generational values to create effective marketing messages and plan appropriate programming.—Publisher’s description

The Potential Impact of Legalizing Marijuana : An Examination with Respect to Health, Crime, and Economy
By Szde Yu, College at Brockport faculty member.
This project examines the potential impact of legalizing marijuana with respect to health, crime, and the economy. The findings do not favor or refute marijuana legalization exclusively. The results are mixed. Although marijuana use is harmful to health, medical marijuana appears to be worth being considered. Little evidence shows marijuana use contributes to the commission of crimes. Legalizing marijuana is unlikely to significantly affect property crime and violent crime either positively or negatively. Research findings suggest that legalizing hemp production will bring considerable profits to the economy, while possible negative impact on traditional industries should be evaluated in research. This book is most suitable for students or scholars who are interested in studying issues regarding drug legalization. It offers an impartial overview about what aspects need to be taken into account when debating on drug legalization.

Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member Elliot B. Weininger: The context of school readiness : social class difference in time use in family life.
Significant disparities exist in children's behavioral and learning capacities that support successful transitions into school. In this new volume, leading researchers from a variety of disciplines review the latest data on how families influence their children's transitions into school. The inequalities that exist in school readiness, the roots of the inequalities, and the ways in which families exacerbate or minimize these inequalities, are explored. The book concludes with a review of policies and programs that represent the best practices for how families, schools and communities can address these disparities.
Each of the following topics is explored through a lead essay followed by three critiques: Inequalities in school readiness and the community, school, and family characteristics that contribute to these inequalities ; Family processes and contextual conditions that impact the acquisition of literacy, numeracy, language, and cognitive skills ; The role that extracurricular activities play in shaping children's school achievement, including differences based on gender, ethnicity, race, and socioeconomic status ; Family processes underlying the development of behavioral control and its impact on school readiness.
Disparities in School Readiness paints a compelling, interdisciplinary portrait using a variety of types of data and data sets, including longitudinal data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development's Study of Early Childhood and recent analyses of the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study from the National Center for Education Statistics. Interdisciplinary in nature, this new book appeals to researchers in family studies, human development, education, psychology, social work, sociology, economics, and public policy interested in improving children's school transitions.

War, poverty, and famine; political, social, and economic change; and the deep seated views and rituals rooted in a culture's history and traditions all contribute to the widespread and growing trafficking of women and children. The multilayered complexity, myriad contributing factors, enormous amount of money involved, and sheer magnitude of the problem render it impossible to solve with the fractured and isolated measures of individual organizations and countries. Only complete cooperation and collaboration at all levels can establish the most proactive and self-sustaining approach to reduce this global crime. Gathering knowledge and experience from more than 40 countries, this book clearly demonstrates the scale and spread of the problem, providing a powerful analysis of the circumstances that contribute to the abuse and victimization of women and children as well as the international policies and strategies used to combat this crime. Divided into two parts, it begins with an introduction to the definition, nature, and scope of human trafficking. It discusses several social theories as well as evident environmental influences. It also examines measures to control and prevent human trafficking from stricter laws and monetary aid, to global community and law enforcement collaboration. Part 2 consists of case studies, drawing examples from a range of countries involved in every stage in the process, and highlighting the unique characteristics of human trafficking in each. Chapters include the prevalence of child pornography in Japan, child abduction in China, bonded child labor in India, and child soldiering in Congo (Zaire) and other African countries. The final chapters discuss law enforcement in the US and UK, community policing in Australia, and the cooperative national plan in place in Croatia.
