The ninth edition of the best-selling Cases and Materials on Employment Discrimination blends cases, notes, and problems into an integrated pedagogy that balances scholarly and practice perspectives. The authors build a conceptual framework for understanding how discrimination is defined and proven in litigation. The text allows professors to explore particular interests more deeply and permits them to take not only a litigation approach but also explore the compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives that are characteristic of modern practice. The broad coverage integrates scholarship with legal doctrine drawn from statutes and judicial decisions. The useful Statutory Supplement is available for separate purchase. Key Benefits: Young v. UPS (reconceptualizing pregnancy discrimination). Nassar v. Uni. of Texas Sw. Med. Ctr. (requiring but-for causation for Title VII retaliation claims) Vance v. Ball State Univ. (narrowing the definition of supervisor for purposes of employer liability for sexual harassment) EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch (reconceptualizing claims of religious discrimination). New circuit court decisions on sexual orientation discrimination under Title VII. Streamlined coverage. Materials have been reworked, thus reducing page count by 100 pages.

Administrative Governance

Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Zivilgesellschaft

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.

Celine Kiernan entführt Sie in eine phantastische Welt Willkommen in einer Welt, in der Magie Teil des täglichen Lebens ist. Eine Welt, in der es geschieht, dass Katzen Geheimnisse ausplaudern. Eine Welt, in der dunkle Mächte nach der Herrschaft greifen und ein außergewöhnliches Mädchen die einzige Rettung bedeutet ... Nichts ist mehr, wie es war, als die fünfzehnjährige Wynter nach ihrer Lehrzeit im Norden nach Hause zurückkehrt. Ein dunkler Bann scheint über dem Königreich zu liegen: Alte Bekannte weichen Wynter aus, und auch die sonst so redseligen Katzen weigern sich, mit ihr zu sprechen. Vor allem aber ist einer ihrer besten Freunde spurlos verschwunden: Kronprinz Albernon. Was ist mit ihm geschehen? Warum hat König Jonathon eine Schreckensherrschaft errichtet? Und was hat es mit den Gerüchten um eine neue, furchterregende Waffe auf sich? Wynter sieht sich vor eine schicksalhafte Wahl gestellt: Soll sie sich dem Willen des Königs beugen oder sich von ihm und ihrer Familie lossagen und das Geheimnis lüften? Auf meisterhafte Weise verbindet Celine Kiernan jugendlichen Zauber mit perfekter Erzählkunst – kein Eragon-Leser wird an „Schattenpfade“ vorbeikommen!

Die beiden Bände des Lehrbuches der psychoanalytischen Therapie sind in kurzer Zeit zu Standardwerken geworden. Sie haben zahlreiche Nachdrucke erlebt und wurden bislang in 10 Sprachen übersetzt. Das Lehrbuch gilt als eines der bedeutensten Werke der modernen Psychoanalyse. Es entspricht in seiner didaktischen Konzeption allen Anforderungen an ein modernes Lehrbuch: o übersichtlich strukturiert, o durchgehend zweifarbig gestaltet, o optische Akzente heben das Wesentliche hervor. Inhaltlich setzt das Werk Maßstäbe für die psychoanalytische Forschung und Praxis weit über die Gegenwart hinaus.
