Women have shaped immigrant families, reared new generations, and pioneered significant changes in their communities.

Rena Seltzer, a respected life coach and trainer who has worked with women professors and academic leaders for many years, offers succinct advice on how you can prioritize the multiplicity of demands on your life, negotiate better, create support networks, and move your career forward.
This is an innovative study of middle-class behaviour and property relations in English towns in Georgian and Victorian Britain. Through the lens of wills, family papers, property deeds, account books and letters, the author offers a reading of the ways in which middle-class families survived and surmounted the economic difficulties of early industrial society. He argues that these were essentially 'networked' families created and affirmed by a 'gift' network of material goods, finance, services and support, with property very much at the centre of middle-class survival strategies. His approach combines microhistorical studies of individual families with a broader analysis of the national and even international networks within which these families operated. The result is a significant contribution to the history, and to debates about the place of structural and cultural analysis in historical understanding.
a volume in Research on International Civic Engagement Series Editors Erik Bergrud, Park University and Kaifeng Yang, Florida State University The Pew Charitable Trusts defines civic engagement as "Individual and collective actions designed to identify and address issues of public concern. Civic engagement can take many forms, from individual volunteerism to organizational involvement to electoral participation. It can include efforts to directly address an issue, work with others in a community to solve a problem or interact with the institutions of representative democracy. Civic engagement encompasses a range of activities such as working in a soup kitchen, serving on a neighborhood association, writing a letter to an elected official or voting." While publications on civic engagement have increased in recent years, there are some limitations or unfilled needs: (1) There is a lack of international perspectives; (2) There is a lack of management focus; (3) There are increasing demands on publications regarding online civic engagement; (4) They tend to be fragmented in individual disciplines such as Nonprofit management, political science, public administration, and sociology. We need a cross-disciplinary approach. Significant features: (1) Each book will have an international focus with contributions from around the world. It stimulates the sharing of experiences across countries. (2) Each book will focus on one cutting-edge topic that has not been carefully addressed in the literature. (3) Emphasizing the integration of research and practice, each book will provide both advanced research studies and innovative best practices. (4) Addressing both offline and online civic engagement. (5) A management focus so that books will provide practitioners insights on how to improve their managerial practices that relate to civic engagement.
In my research for this book I asked several women, what are simple things you look for in a relationship? The women were married, divorced, single, in a committed relationship, and flying solo at the moment. What you are about to read is the answer to that question. If you want to know what a woman wants in a relationship, ask another woman. It is a fact, men and women think differently. We see the world of a relationship through different windows. Men are more stubborn for sure when it comes to compromise; women don't mind compromising as long as you at least consider their point of view. Women seem to be more emotional than men. But when we come together and work on the relationship, we can create a lifetime of happiness. No marriage is at a standstill. Either your marriage is getting better, or it's getting worst.As you read, you will notice that some responses are what men look for in a relationship also. Men if you want to please women, just asked them how can you do it and whatever they say, just do it.
