Kultur ist nicht alles ... Was passiert mit denen, die der KULTUR den Rücken zukehren? Worbik, ein ehemaliger KULTUR-Bewohner, entscheidet sich freiwillig für ein Leben in einer weit weniger fortschrittlichen Zivilisation und kommt dennoch nie ganz von der KULTUR los, wie die titelgebende Story dieses Sammelbandes zeigt. Bereits 1977 fand die erste KULTUR-Mission zur Erde statt – und löste eine Debatte über die Menschheit aus. Ist die Erde nun ein Paradies, oder sollte diese „unbestreitbar neurotische und nachweislich geisteskranke Spezies“ auf dem Planeten lieber ausgelöscht werden? Diese und weitere Geschichten, nicht alle davon im KULTUR-Universum angesiedelt, sind in diesem Sammelband erschienen.

''The editors of the SAGE Handbook of Research in International Education have brought together an impressive array of scholars whose cutting edge research addresses the growing field of international education, from the experiences of K-12 schools around the world to the field of teacher education. This book raises important questions and should be read by a broad audience' - Kenneth Cushner, Executive Director of International Affairs and Professor of Education, Kent State University 'The editors of this admirable handbook have set out to produce a report on international education. Their consummate success in doing so gives those of us working in the field a new and invaluable resource. The editors may be academics but this is a book largely written by, about and for those whose job it is to teach ''internationally''. No-one working in international education will fail to be provoked, challenged or inspired by the compelling arguments advanced within this authoritative volume' - Peter MacKenzie, Principal, Hiroshima International School 'The book is well organized in carefully integrated sections and chapters and the references alone are a valuable bibliographical tool. An indispensable work highly recommended for education reference collections and the libraries of individual researchers' - J.B.Thomas, Emeritus Professor of Educational Studies, Loughborough University Interest in the field of international education has never been more intense than at present. There are a rapidly increasing number of schools worldwide set up specifically to meet the demands of those parents who, through their own professional activities, wish to have their sons and daughters educated in schools that offer programmes based on international values. Such schools have embraced the promotion of international education as one of their major goals and, consequently, an increasing number of organisations currently offer curricula that claim to be international in nature. Such global movements have created a parallel increase in the incorporation of forms of international education within national school systems throughout the world. This has resulted in wider forms of collaboration between schools in the public and private sectors, nationally and internationally, generating a much more substantial base of professional experience in the implementation of schemes for international education than had previously existed. This book analyses the origins, contributions and interpretations of international education. The authors identify approaches to research that will progress our knowledge and understanding of the field, and extend and even redraw it, on the basis of the research evidence presented. Content includes: - A historical overview of the ways in which the term "international education" has been interpreted - The theoretical interpretation of international education in its current context - International education in practice: exploration of the issues in terms of students, curricula, pedagogies and organising formal institutions - Conceptual challenges for international education in the future This handbook is an essential resource for those who are involved in the practice and academic study of international education. It will be of particular interest to researchers and teachers in universities, governmental and private curriculum development agencies, examination authorities, administrators and teachers in schools. 'This volume is another valuable SAGE contribution to the expanding literature on international education. Not all handbooks are described as essential reading but this one will be, and will become an indispensable work of reference highly recommended for education libraries (both academic and governmental) and for the bookshelves of individual researchers and all involved in international education...the three editors and their fellow authors can take a collective pride in having given us an excellent volume which very successfully completes a chronological and theoretical journey through the issues, practices and future questions presented by international research and practice in international education' - Journal of Research in International Education

This shorter version of the best-selling WORLDS OF MUSIC is based on the 4th edition and provides much of the authoritative coverage of the comprehensive version in a format that's accessible to students without any background or training in music. Using the case-study approach, the text presents in-depth explorations of music of several cultures from around the world. The authors all ethnomusicologists working in their fields of expertise base their discussions of music-cultures on their own fieldwork and give students a true sense of both the music and culture that created it. General editor, Jeff Todd Titon, has written the text's opening chapter, that introduces students to ethnomusicology and relates each chapter's music heard on the accompanying CDs to the fundamentals of music in a worldwide context. The text concludes with a chapter that invites students to participate by undertaking a fieldwork research project that increases a student's understanding of music in daily life. Two CDs accompany every copy of the book on the inside back cover. The selected recordings cover a wide range of music-cultures and include authentic recordings from the authors' fieldwork. Leading off is the long-standing jewel in the Worlds of Music crown - James Koetting's magnificent recording of postal workers canceling stamps at the University of Ghana post office. A Western-sounding hymn tune performed against African rhythms, this piece, more that any other, lets the student hear contrasting music-cultures. Packaged with the text, the CDs make this book the best value available for the course.

English description: In this book may be found a complete edition and German translation of the Old Persian texts of the mostly trilingual cuneiform inscriptions of the Persian kings from the Achaemenid dynasty. Only the minor corpora of vase inscriptions and those on seals and weights are passed over, because they are of only narrow historical meaning. The edition presents the transliterated and the transcribed texts in two columns next to each other and beneath them succinct annotations and the translation respectively, which tries to render the original wording as literally as possible. The book starts with a list of all the Achaemenid cuneiform inscriptions (also those written not in Old Persian script and language), that describes the texts in outline and includes the literature relevant for constituting and translating the texts in question. German description: Der Band enthalt eine vollstandige Ausgabe und deutsche Ubersetzung der altpersischen Versionen der meist dreisprachigen Keilinschriften der Achaimenidenkonige. Nicht berucksichtigt sind wegen ihrer geringen historischen Aussagekraft nur die Gefass-, Siegel- und Gewichtsinschriften. Die Ausgabe bietet in zwei Spalten den transliterierten und den transkribierten ('normalisierten') Text sowie, darunter, knappe Anmerkungen bzw. die (moglichst wortliche) Ubersetzung. Vorangestellt ist ihr eine Liste samtlicher achaimenidischer Keilinschriften, die die Texte stichwortartig beschreibt und die fur Text und Ubersetzung wesentliche Literatur verzeichnet.
