The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development presents the major theories, key concepts, disorders, and evidence-based practices of the field. Covering infancy through adolescence and emerging adulthood, this important work outlines major areas of research and examines specific topics, ongoing controversies, and current work being done by leaders in the field. The first work on the topic of its scale, the Encyclopedia offers scholarly, authoritative information from an international team of experts that spans ten volumes. The content of the encyclopedia is organized in two main parts—Child and Adolescent—and ten subparts. The first six volumes focus on topics of growth, behavior, cognition, emotion, family, and community in child development. The final four volumes explore the history, theory, and culture of adolescent development, biology and cognition, social contexts, and of the development of the self in adolescence and emerging adulthood. Each entry contains an accessible introduction to basic concepts as well as sophisticated debates in contentious areas and ongoing research on each topic.
The most comprehensive and up-to-date reference on contemporary, historical, and global concerns about women, crime, and criminal justice The Encyclopedia of Women and Crime is a comprehensive reference work on the pioneers and practitioners in the field of criminal justice, and expert analysis of both female offenders and victims of crime. Offering a balanced perspective, this innovative work focuses on interdisciplinary, transnational, historical, and current perspectives on gender and offending behavior, victimization, legal and policy responses, and notable cases and individuals. Comprehensive coverage of a wide range of timely and relevant topics, historical analyses, biographies, and legal case studies provide readers with an essential resource on the intersection of race, class, and gender with both crime and victimization.
Providing a global perspective and both contemporary and historical scholarship on the subject, this multi-volume encyclopedia enables readers to assess current literature on crime, justice and gender, and understand and analyze women as both offenders of and victims of crime. Inclusive examination of topics including domestic violence, gender and human trafficking, rape and sexual offences, gender issues in policing, probation, and parole, and many others allow readers to understand the many facets of this important area of study.
This module documents the international and domestic traffic of slaves in Britain’s New World colonies and the United States, providing important primary source material on the business aspect of the slave trade.

These letters cover the slave trade, general slavery matters including runaway slaves and rights of slaves, and other legal issues.
The International Encyclopedia of Anthropology is the most complete reference resource for the field of anthropology and interrelated areas, providing an authoritative and expert overview of the concepts, research, and techniques that together define the discipline. Over 1,000 entries, ranging from concise summaries to longer writings, present the reader with in-depth discussions of hundreds of key topics, including ecology, human evolution, gender, health, language and education, kinship, politics, and power, as well as biographical entries of many of the world’s most influential founding anthropologists.
The Encyclopedia: Represents the first comprehensive encyclopedic reference relating to biological anthropology; Topics range from ongoing human evolution, paleoanthropology, and non-human primates to paleopathology, forensic anthropology, and bioarchaeology; Includes interdisciplinary coverage of primatology, human biology, paleoanthropology, bioarchaeology, anthropological genetics, and the history of biological anthropology
Features over 240 videos of the most common mental health disorders nurses may encounter – whether in a primary care setting, emergency room, medical, psychiatric, or other. These essential visual examples will prepare nurses to better assess, diagnose, and manage mental health issues in patients. Faculty can easily integrate these 2-22-minute-long videos within lectures, discussion groups, tests, and distance learning programs. Nursing and Mental Health in Video supports the existing curriculum at all levels – undergraduate, graduate, and professional.
Simplify your selection process. Distilled data. Improved efficiency. Organic Reactions is a comprehensive online resource for synthetic organic chemists. It focuses on ca. 300 of the most important and useful synthetic reaction types. Individual examples of each reaction type are cataloged and reviewed by trained chemists (rather than machine selected), resulting in a high quality critical discussion of the scope, selectivity, practicality, and reproducibility of a given reaction.
Atlantic history is a fast developing field of historical inquiry that operates upon new assumptions about how to understand the remarkable nature of interactions between different peoples and cultures on four continents and many islands in the period between Columbus’ voyages to the New World in the late fifteenth century and the end of slavery in the Americas in the late nineteenth century. Its principal theme is the movement of peoples, ideas and things in the Atlantic World – a world encompassing the continents of Africa, Europe, North America and South America and many islands, from the Canary Islands near Africa to the Caribbean islands and to Bermuda in the North Atlantic. The multiple movements were fundamentally important in shaping the modern world and in making cultural diversity a key component of modern identity.
Urban Studies is a broad, interdisciplinary field of study that includes subfields not only in most of the major social sciences, but also in the humanities, and in more technical fields such as architecture, planning, engineering, environmental science, and legal studies. What binds together urbanist scholars in various disciplines is a focus on the lived experiences of larger social systems and structural forces in specific places marked by large, dense, and heterogeneous populations. Though today it is evidently a global process, urbanization has proceeded unevenly, largely following the growth of markets, moving from Europe, to the Americas, and then to Asia and Africa. The academic study of cities has largely followed the same progression.
