              This is a novel about the all too common practice in higher academia of hiring part time, non-tenure track faculty to teach students. The faculty hired in these situations often cannot pursue research even though they likely have a Ph.D. This fictional story is mostly set in the ...1970s. It follows the tumultuous career of a professor interested in teaching and doing research in biological science. The people who administered the university at the place of his employment expressly do not want faculty to be involved with research. The professor in the story owns a Ph.D., which is a research degree. He holds that being involved in research adds a beneficial dimension to his teaching. Problems arise when he decides to undertake a research problem at his own expense and on his own time. A marine invertebrate zoologist, his search for knowledge centers on the marine organisms that have settled on a lengthy set of pier pilings. When this ultimately leads to publications by himself and with students, his bosses at the university find that seriously troublesome and they try to make him cease. Dire consequences result. The author is a marine biologist and has taught university students for years. So he has extensive experience with this subject area. Of course, what is supposedly found out in the research undertaken in the story is fiction. On the other hand, the marine organisms investigated are real enough species. While the research findings of his main character may be imagined, the approaches to formulating questions and ways to answer them are very much as they might have been in reality. What this author creates here is a telling of the troubles, trials, and tribulations that may come from pursuing new knowledge.

              Since its establishment in 1945, the United Nations has undergone numerous reforms as international stakeholders seek ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the U.N. system. During the past two decades, controversies such as corruption in the Iraq Oil-For-Food Progra...m, allegations of sexual abuse by U.N. peacekeepers, and instances of waste, fraud, and abuse by the U.N. staff have focused attention on the need for change and improvement of the United Nations. Many in the international community, including the United States, continue to promote substantive reforms. The 113th Congress may focus on U.N. reforms as it considers appropriate levels of U.S. funding to the United Nations and monitors the progress and implementation of ongoing and previously approved reform measures. This book examines policy and reform issues relating to the United Nations; the United Nations Human Rights Council; the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and the UNESCO World Heritage Convention.

              Constructing Reform: Economic Expertise & the Governing of Agricultural Change in Australia

              Constructing Reform: Economic Expertise & the Governing of Agricultural Change in Australia (Hardback)

              The productivity and efficiency of farmers in both Australia and other Western nations has assumed increasing significance on the formal political agenda since the 1960s. Economic changes at both the international and national level have raised questions among economists, farm or...ganisations and state agencies concerning the capacity of some farmers to be able to earn an adequate income, and thereby contribute to national agricultural output and efficiency. While these concerns have contributed to policies of farm subsidisation in Europe, Britain and the United States, Australia has taken a somewhat different path. Farm reconstruction and adjustment programs were created from the early-1970s that sought to 'restructure' the farm sector by encouraging so-called 'unviable' farmers to exit the industry while providing incentives for remaining producers to improve their productivity. Economists in both the public service and academic institutions have welcomed such policies arguing that intervention in assisting processes of 'adjustment' makes agricultural resources available for those farmers who will use them in the most efficient manner, while ensuring also that the welfare needs of unviable farmers are met. The aim of this book is to explore the events, techniques and forms of calculation through which economic expertise in Australia has come to assume increased authority on matters of agricultural change, and the consequences of this for how strategies of 'restructuring' are assembled as objects of knowledge.
