This story took place on the eve of the American Civil War. Living in Georgia, the girl Scarlett grew up under the edification of the conservative culture in the Southern US. However, with increasingly clear rebellious personality, she appeared to be enthusiastic and untrammeled, showing distinct characteristics of modern women. With the spread of the war and environmental deterioration, Scarlett's rebellious personality was transformed into the spirit of hard work and ceaseless self-improvement. She improved herself in a series of setbacks, and retrieved the declining tendency of the whole family, thus becoming the new female image of the times. In addition to description of personal fate and emotional waves, the novel successfully presented the background of the Civil War, and the political, economic and cultural differences between both parties with spectacular scenario and epic charm, as the true reflection of the turning period in the history of US. Therefore, this novel became popular around the world since its date of birth, serving as an immortal romantic classic of English literature.

Police Leadership and Management

Police Leadership and Management

Author: Margaret Mitchell Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/08/2007

The challenges for police leaders and managers worldwide are surprisingly consistent. This volume presents fresh and unusual perspectives from Australia on the new contexts and challenges of contemporary police leadership and management. It provides practitioners, researchers and students with a breadth and depth of background that enables them to understand the often politically complex environment of crime and disorder management faced by those in leadership roles. The contributors to the volume recognise that modern operational policing must embrace partnership models in order to manage crime and disorder, and that, while command and control models are still an essential of many aspects of policing, managing police officers and staff increasingly depends on their professional development and encouraging enthusiasm and innovation. The authors also write against a background of intense political, media and community scrutiny of police work. The wide range of topics explores what is changing, what is known about the impact of these changes and what leaders and managers now need to be able to do or anticipate as a consequence.

Remember Me Constructing Immortality - Beliefs on Immortality, Life, and Death

Remember Me Constructing Immortality - Beliefs on Immortality, Life, and Death

Author: Margaret Mitchell Format: Paperback Release Date: 16/02/2007

Remember Me brings together contributors from around the world with unique insight on the ways in which one's relationship with loved ones continues, endures, and perhaps even grows after death. Much of the available literature speaks of healthy bereavement as letting go of the deceased and moving forward with life. This new text challenges that notion, discussing the meaning attributed to death and to the anticipation of death. The living, as presented in these innovative chapters, construct social entities of those who have died, via the carrying out of wishes in the Will; pursuing legal claims; or simply attributing certain desires, emotions, or choices to the deceased reconstitutes them as active, even vital, voices even after biological death. Just as life itself, the end of life and death is an interdisciplinary matter. A clear psychological theme and focus ties together these perspectives under three conceptual areas: the anticipation of death; the social life of the deceased and the legal embodiment of the deceased.
