Re-Reading Education Policy and Practice in Small States: Issues of Size and Scale in the Emerging Intelligent Society and Economy
Tavis Jules and Patrick Ressler
The volume is concerned with educational developments in small and microstates, a topic that has only relatively recently started to attract the attention it deserves. It is guided by the questions (i) if and how small and microstates deal with policy challenges to their education systems that are particularly important for their future development and (ii) whether there is something like typical small / microstate behavior. The volume seeks to contribute to a genuinely comparative approach to education in small and microstates. Moreover, widening conventional definitions of smallness, it aims to advance research in the field not only in a thematic but also in a theoretical perspective. Overall, the volume seeks to expand our understanding of small and microstates – and by implication of big states as well –, especially regarding what is general and what is particular about their behavior.

Migrants and Citizens: Justice and Responsibility in the Ethics of Immigration
What responsibilities do citizens have to migrants and potential migrants? What responsibilities do migrants themselves have? What is the basis of those responsibilities? In this book Tisha Rajendra reframes the confused and often heated debate surrounding immigration and develops a Christian ethic that can address these neglected questions.
Rajendra begins by illuminating the flawed narratives about migrants that are often used in political debates on the subject. She goes on to propose a new definition of justice that is based on responsibility to relationships, drawing on the concrete experience of migrants, ethical theory, migration theory, and the relational ethics of the Bible.
Professors, students, and others committed to formulating a solid ethical approach to questions surrounding immigration will benefit greatly from Rajendra's timely presentation of a constructive way forward.

Christopher H. Skinner and Sherri Brown

Healthy Places, Healthy People: A Handbook for Culturally Informed Community Nursing Practice, 3rd Edition
Melanie C. Dreher, Susan P. Lehmann, and Lisa E. Skemp
At the clinic, in the classroom, and across the globe, nurses are at the forefront of leading change and promoting social justice in healthcare. But this doesn’t just happen. To provide the best possible patient care and effectively improve a community’s future health, nurses need practical advice, realistic strategies, and the core public health leadership competencies[md]community relationship-building, inquiry, assessment, analysis, planning, action, evaluation, and persuasion[md]that transcend categorical public health concerns.
Healthy Places, Healthy People (3rd ed.) provides everything that current and future nurses need to prepare, gather, organize, and analyze basic community information to create a public health strategy. A well-crafted strategy enables public health workers to effectively mobilize citizen action, working with groups and individuals to build capacity for health equity and, ultimately, a healthier future.
A Critical Look at Institutional Mission: A Guide for Writing Program Administrators
A Critical Look at Institutional Mission: A Guide for Writing Program Administrators helps writing program administrators and writing center directors understand how their work is fueled and constrained by institutional mission. It offers provocations for reflection, conversation, and strategic stewardship of writing programs and writing centers. Mission is a central concept in millennial academe. For many two- and four-year colleges, mission denotes the distinctive institutional history and traditions of practice colleges use to serve students. Yet some traditions may be at odds with marketplace drivers, such as recruitment and retention, institutional rebranding, and social change. WPAs and writing center directors may struggle to reconcile historical practice with contemporary work in civic engagement, undergraduate research, academic advancement, general education, LGBTQI advocacy, and support for students of color.
In A Critical Look at Institutional Mission: A Guide for Writing Program Administrators, contributors discuss the complications of teaching and administrating within specific institutional cultures. Reflecting on the restrictions they face, these scholars remind us that our work is rarely ours alone—that we work in community with others, for others, and within institutional contexts and imperatives. Contributors include Nicholas N. Behm, Anita R. Cortez, Dominic DelliCarpini, Anita M. DeRouen, Andrea Rosso Efthymiou, Lauren Fitzgerald, Kristine Hansen, Jason Hoppe, Joseph Janangelo, Andrew Jeter, Joyce Kinkead, Jeffrey Klausman, Rita Malenczyk, Steve Price, Lauren Rosenberg, and Farrell J. Webb.
