This case study report describes the comprehensive approach to gender inclusiveness resettlement in the Song Bung 4 Hydropower Project in a remote mountainous region of Quang Nam Province, Viet Nam. Based on discussions with people in affected villages, the report illustrates how the project is promoting women's empowerment through participatory approaches and is bringing emerging gender benefits to ethnic minority communities that were previously isolated from economic and social development. In so doing, it offers good practice and lessons learned for other large infrastructure projects in Viet Nam and the wider region where resettlement is unavoidable.

Numerous American women artists built successful professional careers in the mid-twentieth century while confronting challenging cultural transitions: shifts in stylistic avant-gardism, harsh political transformations, and changing gender expectations for both women and men. These social and political upheavals provoked complex intellectual and aesthetic tensions. Critical discourses about style and expressive value were also renegotiated, while still privileging masculinist concepts of aesthetic authenticity. In these contexts, women artists developed their careers by adopting innovative approaches to contemporary subjects, techniques, and media. However, while a few women working during these decades have gained significant recognition, many others are still consigned to historical obscurity. The essays in this volume take varied approaches to revising this historical silence. Two focus on evidence of gender biases in several exhibitions and contemporary critical writings; the rest discuss individual artists' complex relationships to mainstream developments, with attention to gender and political biases, cultural innovations, and the influence of racial/ethnic diversity. Several also explore new interpretative directions to open alternative possibilities for evaluating women's aesthetic and formal choices. Through its complex, nuanced approach to issues of gender and female agency, this volume offers valuable and exciting new scholarship in twentieth-century American art history and feminist studies.

As a result of transnational migration, many countries are becoming increasingly ethnoculturally diverse, creating both new opportunities and challenges for practices of adult education. This volume examines the changing nature of adult education in the age of increased transnational migration and: • synthesize the latest research, policies, and practices in transnational migration and adult education, • examines the larger historical and structural issues of race and gender in immigration and newer theories, such as diaspora studies, in relation to adult education, and • provides examples and recommendations for enhancing socially just and inclusive adult education environments for newcomers. Transborder injustices and multiple dimensions of social justice permeate immigration dynamics and challenge adult educators to rethink social justice in a transnational age. This is the 146th volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

Vulnerability is an essential but also an intriguing ambiguous part of the human condition. This book con-ceptualizes vulnerability to be a fundamental threat and deficit and at the same time to be a powerful resource for transformation.The exploration is undertaken in multidisciplinary perspectives and approaches the human condition in fruitful conversations with medical, psychological, legal, theological, political and philosophical investiga-tions of vulnerability.The multidisciplinary approach opens the space for a broad variety of deeply interrelated topics. Thus, vulnerability is analyzed with respect to diverse aspects of human and social life, such as violence and power, the body and social institutions. Theologically questions of sin and redemption and eventually the nature of the Divine are taken up. Throughout the book phenomenological descriptions are combined with necessary conceptual clarifications. The contributions seek to illuminate the relation between vulnerability as a fundamental unavoidable condition and contingent actualizations related to specific dangers and risks. The core thesis of the book can be seen within its multi-perspectivity: A sound concept of vulnerability is key to a realistic, that is to say neither negative nor illusionary anthropology, to an honest post-theistic understanding of God and eventually to a deeply humanistic understanding of social life.

»Nicht bemitleiden, nicht auslachen, nicht verabscheuen, sondern verstehen!« – so lautet das Credo dieser außergewöhnlichen soziologischen Studie über Formen und Ursachen des Leidens in und an der heutigen Gesellschaft. Menschen, die sonst weder zu Wort kommen noch gehört werden, berichten über ihr gewöhnliches, konkretes Leben, ihre Hoffnungen und Frustrationen, Verletzungen und Leiden. In ihrer Zusammenschau ergeben diese Lebens- und Gesellschaftsbilder »von unten« ein schonungsloses Röntgenbild der französischen – und nicht nur der französischen – Gegenwartsgesellschaft, geprägt von zunehmendem Konkurrenzdruck, struktureller Massenarbeitslosigkeit, Sozialabbau, gesellschaftlicher Marginalisierung bzw. Ausschließung immer breiterer Bevölkerungsgruppen, verstärkt durch den schleichenden Rückzug des Staates aus seiner Verantwortung für das Gemeinwohl und die zunehmende Deregulierung von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Die kleinen und großen Miseren und Leiden dieser Alltagsmenschen erscheinen in der janusgesichtigen Gestalt von ökonomischer Lage bzw. materiellen gesellschaftlichen Zwängen hier und leidvollen Erfahrungen mit sozialen Hierarchien, wie sie mit der jeweiligen Stellung im Sozialraum einhergehen, dort. Gerade diese stellungsbedingte Form des Leidens an der Gesellschaft, allzu lange von der Soziologie vernachlässigt und im öffentlichen Diskurs verschwiegen, bringt die von Pierre Bourdieu und Mitarbeitern vorgelegte Analyse radikal zu Bewusstsein. Ein eminent politisches Buch.

***Ein ergreifendes Buch über eine zerstörte Kindheit in einem zerstörten Land – jetzt auch verfilmt von Angelina Jolie*** Kambodscha im April 1975. Soldaten der Roten Khmer rücken in die Hauptstadt Phnom Penh vor. Das Land versinkt in Hunger, Grauen und Mord. Aus dem umhegten Kind Loung Ung wird ein elternloser Flüchtling, der im kambodschanischen Dschungel verzweifelt ums Überleben kämpft. Unsagbares Leid bricht über sie herein. Loung muss sich in einem Waisenlager zum Kindersoldaten ausbilden lassen, ihre Brüder und Schwestern kämpfen in Arbeitslagern verzweifelt um ihr Leben. Allein die Hoffnung, ihre Familie am Ende der Schreckensherrschaft wiederzusehen, spendet Loung Ung Trost. »Reden heißt, meine Familie in große Gefahr zu bringen. Mir fünf Jahren beginne ich zu verstehen, wie es ist, allein zu sein, still und einsam mit der Erwartung, dass mich jeder verletzen könnte.«
