Observing young children at play is an everyday and often fascinating and pleasurable experience for many of us. It also has a great pedigree in the development of psychoanalysis from Freud's observation of his grandson's game with the cotton-reel onwards.This book describes the practice of observing young children in home and nursery settings in a systematic and non-intrusive way in order to expand our understanding of their emotional, cognitive, and social development. It uses a psychoanalytic lens to enrich the meaning of what is seen. How do minds and personalities take shape? How can we train people to see what is most relevant in helping children to develop?The chapters range from classic papers by famous practitioners of an older generation to observations completed in recent years in the UK, Europe, and the US. Observation of this sort has also spread to Latin America, India, Australia, Africa, and the Far East. The differences and continuities with Infant Observation are the starting point. What happens when a child starts nursery? How active a playmate should an observer be? How do we balance the close attention given to the observed child with the wider group of children in a nursery? How do we make sense of the marked cultural differences we see between families, nurseries, and indeed national cultures? How can we use observation as a baseline for early intervention and how can we research what we are doing?The book is written for the many students and professionals concerned with the care and education of under fives, and for parents, grandparents, and all who are interested in the mind of the young child. The meeting of inner and outer worlds, which characterizes life in these crucial years, is vividly depicted. Readers will delight in the children's capacity for imaginative thought and also find themselves pondering what makes a nursery a good-enough place for staff and children.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the science of the history of life. Paleobiologists bring many analytical tools to bear in interpreting the fossil record and the book introduces the latest techniques, from multivariate investigations of biogeography and biostratigraphy to engineering analysis of dinosaur skulls, and from homeobox genes to cladistics. All the well-known fossil groups are included, including microfossils and invertebrates, but an important feature is the thorough coverage of plants, vertebrates and trace fossils together with discussion of the origins of both life and the metazoans. All key related subjects are introduced, such as systematics, ecology, evolution and development, stratigraphy and their roles in understanding where life came from and how it evolved and diversified. Unique features of the book are the numerous case studies from current research that lead students to the primary literature, analytical and mathematical explanations and tools, together with associated problem sets and practical schedules for instructors and students. “..any serious student of geology who does not pick this book off the shelf will be putting themselves at a huge disadvantage. The material may be complex, but the text is extremely accessible and well organized, and the book ought to be essential reading for palaeontologists at undergraduate, postgraduate and more advanced levels—both in Britain as well as in North America.” Falcon-Lang, H., Proc. Geol. Assoc. 2010 “…this is an excellent introduction to palaeontology in general. It is well structured, accessibly written and pleasantly informative …..I would recommend this as a standard reference text to all my students without hesitation.” David Norman Geol Mag 2010 Companion website This book includes a companion website at: www.blackwellpublishing.com/paleobiology The website includes: · An ongoing database of additional Practical’s prepared by the authors · Figures from the text for downloading · Useful links for each chapter · Updates from the authors

The leading textbook in its field, this work applies paleobiological principles to the fossil record while detailing the evolutionary history of major plant and animal phyla. It incorporates current research from biology, ecology, and population genetics. Written for biology and geology undergrads, the text bridges the gap between purely theoretical paleobiology and solely descriptive invertebrate paleobiology books, emphasizing the cataloguing of live organisms over dead objects. This third edition revises art and research throughout, expands the coverage of invertebrates, includes a discussion of new methodologies, and adds a chapter on the origin and early evolution of life.

When we fail to achieve our goals, procrastination is often the culprit. But how exactly is procrastination to be understood? It has been described as imprudent, irrational, inconsistent, and even immoral, but there has been no sustained philosophical debate concerning the topic. This edited volume starts in on the task of integrating the problem of procrastination into philosophical inquiry. The focus is on exploring procrastination in relation to agency, rationality, and ethics-topics that philosophy is well-suited to address. Theoretically and empirically informed analyses are developed and applied with the aim of shedding light on a vexing practical problem that generates a great deal of frustration, regret, and harm. Some of the key questions that are addressed include the following: How can we analyze procrastination in a way that does justice to both its voluntary and its self-defeating dimensions? What kind of practical failing is procrastination? Is it a form of weakness of will? Is it the product of fragmented agency? Is it a vice? Given the nature of procrastination, what are the most promising coping strategies?

Vom erfolgreichen Drehbuchautor zu einem der größten jungen Erzähltalente Amerikas – David Benioff legt mit STADT DER DIEBE ein modernes Meisterwerk vor, einen fesselnden Abenteuerroman und zugleich die Geschichte einer ungewöhnlichen Freundschaft zwischen zwei jungen Männern, die eine irrwitzige Aufgabe zu erfüllen haben: Im belagerten, ausgehungerten Leningrad sollen sie ein Dutzend Eier auftreiben. Leningrad im Januar 1942: Weil er während der nächtlichen Ausgangssperre die Leiche eines deutschen Soldaten nach Essbarem durchsucht hat, wird der 17-jährige Lew sofort verhaftet – auf Plündern steht die Todesstrafe. Nach endlosen Stunden in einer kargen Gefängniszelle wird er allerdings nicht aufs Schafott, sondern zusammen mit seinem Mithäftling Kolja vor den Geheimdienstchef der Stadt geführt. Der stellt die beiden vor eine schier unlösbare Aufgabe – im Tausch gegen ihr Leben sollen sie innerhalb von sechs Tagen im ausgehungerten Leningrad zwölf Eier für die Hochzeitstorte seiner Tochter auftreiben. Ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit beginnt, der den schüchternen, introvertierten Lew schicksalhaft an Kolja schweißt – einen schlitzohrigen, charmanten Frauenhelden und notorischen Lügner, der ihm ständig schmerzhaft bewusst macht, dass er selbst so gar nicht zum Abenteurer taugt. Als die beiden die Hoffnung, in Leningrad Eier zu finden, aufgeben müssen, fasst Kolja einen aberwitzigen Plan: Er will sich mit Lew zu einer Geflügelfarm jenseits der feindlichen Linien durchschlagen, in ein Dorf südlich von Leningrad. Ein selbstmörderisches Unterfangen, wären da nicht Koljas Kaltschnäuzigkeit, eine unerschrockene Partisanin namens Vika und Lews Schachtalent ... David Benioff ist der Drehbuchautor von “Drachenläufer“ und „Troja“.

The first edition of Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems was widely praised for its coverage and approach in describing and illustrating 14 well-known fossil sites from around the world. The authors have now updated the text and added 6 new chapters with many new color illustrations. Following a general introduction to fossil Lagerstätten, each chapter deals with a single site and follows the same format: its evolutionary position and significance; its background sedimentology, stratigraphy and palaeoenvironment; a description of the biota and palaeoecology; a comparison with other similar Lagerstätten; and a list of relevant museums and suggestions for visiting the sites. This study of exceptionally well-preserved fossil sites from different periods in geological time provides a picture of the evolution of ecosystems through the ages. Covers several sites that are not listed in other Lagerstatten books making this the most comprehensive book on the topic; Beautifully illustrated throughout with more than 450 color photographs and diagrams; Provides value to a wide range of students and professionals in palaeontology and related sciences.
