✏Banking Systems Around the Globe Book Summary : Empirical results highlight the downside of imposing certain regulatory restrictions on commercial bank activities.

✏Around the Globe Book Summary : Around the Globe. Rethinking Oral History with Its Protagonists presents interviews with thirteen prominent scholars focusing on oral history. In these interviews Professor Miroslav Vaněk captures not only segments of life stories of these personalities, how and why they began their pursuit of oral history, but also their views of the status and importance of oral history within social sciences. The interviews reflect on how they cope with the frequently asked question concerning the subjective character of oral history, whether they consider oral history to be a discipline or method and whether such classification is even relevant. Personages such as David King Dunaway, Ronald Grele, Elizabeth Millwood, Alexander von Plato, Alessandro Portelli, Alistair Thomson, Paul Thompson and others reflect on the future of oral history at the time of the fast-developing technologies as well as on the limits of interpretation of oral history interviews. This book is intended for all readers interested in social sciences.

✏New Literacies around the Globe Book Summary : The increasing popularity of digitally-mediated communication is prompting us to radically rethink literacy and its role in education; at the same time, national policies have promulgated a view of literacy focused on the skills and classroom routines associated with print, bolstered by regimes of accountability and assessments. As a result, teachers are caught between two competing discourses: one upholding a traditional conception of literacy re-iterated by politicians and policy-makers, and the other encouraging a more radical take on 21st century literacies driven by leading edge thinkers and researchers. There is a pressing need for a book which engages researchers in international dialogue around new literacies, their implications for policy and practice, and how they might articulate across national boundaries. Drawing on cutting edge research from the USA, Canada, UK, Australia and South Africa, this book is a pedagogical and policy-driven call for change. It explores studies of literacy practices in varied contexts through a refreshingly dialogic style, interspersed with commentaries which comment on the significance of the work described for education. The book concludes on the ‘conversation’ developed to identify key recommendations for policy-makers through a Charter for Literacy Education. .
