Shame and Modernity in Britain: 1890 to the Present

Shame and Modernity in Britain: 1890 to the Present By Anne-Marie Kilday
English | EPUB | 2017 | 327 Pages | ISBN : 0230359337 | 1.98 MB

This book argues that traditional images and practices associated with shame did not recede with the coming of modern Britain. Following the authors’ acclaimed and successful nineteenth century book, Cultures of Shame, this new monograph moves forward to look at shame in the modern era. As such, it investigates how social and cultural expectations in both war and peace, changing attitudes to sexual identities and sexual behaviour, new innovations in media and changing representations of reputation, all became sites for shame’s reconstruction, making it thoroughly modern and in tune with twentieth century Britain’s expectations.

The Arc of Faith-Based Initiatives: Religion’s Changing Role in Welfare Service Provision

The Arc of Faith-Based Initiatives: Religion’s Changing Role in Welfare Service Provision By John P. Bartkowski
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 220 Pages | ISBN : 3319906674 | 3.40 MB

This volume offers an in-depth examination of a diverse range of faith-based programs implemented in three different geographical locales: family support in rural Mississippi, transitional housing in Michigan, and addiction recovery in the Pacific Northwest (Washington-Oregon). Various types of religious service providers—faith-intensive and faith-related—are carefully examined, and secular organizations also serve as an illuminating point of comparison. Among other insights, this book reveals how the “three C’s” of social service provision—programmatic content, organizational culture, and ecological context—all combine to shape the delivery of welfare services in the nonprofit world. This book warns against simplistic generalizations about faith-based organizations. Faith-based providers exhibit considerable diversity and, quite often, remarkable resilience in the face of challenging social circumstances. An appreciation of these nuances is critical as policies concerning faith-based organizations continue to evolve.

NGOs and Accountability in China: Child Welfare Organisations

NGOs and Accountability in China: Child Welfare Organisations By Jude Howell
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 235 Pages | ISBN : 3319902202 | 3.36 MB

This book investigates how NGOs in authoritarian states, such as China, craft accountability and legitimacy to ensure their survival. It explores this through the lens of child welfare organisations from 2007 to 2017. The authors provide a fresh approach to accountability that is more attuned to the particular conditions of authoritarianism. The project explores the effects of power relations in shaping the hierarchies of accountability and participation that emerge and the attention given to different voices such as those of donor, government, and users. Essential reading for researchers and policy makers interested in development, NGO, social policy, political science, and child welfare studies.
