✏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.

✏Bioethics Around the Globe Book Summary : Contemporary bioethics, now roughly 40 years old as a discipline, originated in the United States with a primarily Anglo-American cultural ethos. It continues to be professionalized and institutionalized as a maturing discipline at the intersections of philosophy, medicine, law, social sciences, and humanities. Increasingly bioethics - along with its foundational values, concepts and principals - has been exported to other countries, not only in the developed West, but also in developing and/or Eastern countries. Bioethics thus continues to undergo intriguing transformations as it is globalized and adapted to local cultures. These processes have occurred rapidly in the last two decades, with relatively little reflection and examination. This volume brings together contributors from a wide variety of disciplines to take a critical, empirical look at bioethics around the globe, examining how it is being transformed - at both local and global levels - in this process of cross-cultural exporting and importing. One concern is to identify sociocultural forces and consequences which may positively or negatively affect ethics and social justice goals. This book thereby offers the first comparative anthropology and sociology of globalizing bioethics in the field, exploring the global dissemination, local adaptations, cultural meanings and social functions of bioethics theories, practices and institutions and comparing developed and developing countries. The volume considers a full range of countries on every inhabited continent, including: Africa, Asia, Australia, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and North America. Topics include government agendas such as nationalism and nation building; agendas of powerful, associated professions (e.g., medicine, law); theological and political agendas such as 'culture wars'; agendas of entrepreneurial economies of profit; and other cultural and ideological agendas consciously or unconsciously advanced or contested by bioethics work in particular countries based on their unique history, politics and culture. This cross-cultural exploration of globalizing bioethics will be of great interest to a field that is increasingly introspective about its underlying sociocultural assumptions and biases. "At last-an unabashedly sociological and anthropological look at the globalization of bioethics, a really fresh approach to a maturing discipline. The chapters speak from the perspective of sophisticated Western-developed exporters of the bioethical paradigm [and equally sophisticated] Eastern-developing and third-world and interdisciplinary critics suspicious of the canonical view. Trained in the dominant school of American, mainstream philosophy, Myser draws on her long-standing commitment to a social and cultural approach to bioethics to take a fresh look at bioethics globally. She grasps the globalization of bioethics and the skepticism about analytical philosophy's Americanized consensus. The book sets the stage for a new era in bioethics theory and practice {debating] whether a universal common morality underlies the rich variation in national and cultural bioethics traditions." - Robert Veatch, Georgetown University "This path-breaking volume is the first to explore the global export of Western bioethics to a variety of non-Western settings. Explicitly critical, the book also points to the liberating potential of bioethics to achieve social justice and improve the lives of patients around the world. The book is a must-read for all medical anthropologists interested in bioethics." - Marcia Inhorn, Yale University "Bioethics Around the Globe should change the way bioethics is conceived and practiced in the U.S. and elsewhere. Its rich and wide-ranging comparative examination opens new possibilities for bioethical reflection. I enthusiastically recommend this wonderful book." - James F. Childress, University of Virginia "The past 40 years have seen a remarkable spread of bioethics to every part of the world. Dr. Myser's collection is a wonderful and rich exploration of its international impact, revealing important similarities and differences from country to country. It will have an important impact." - Daniel Callahan, The Hastings Center

✏BOOMERVILLE Getting Off the Corporate Merry Go Round Book Summary : As millions of baby boomers head toward retirement and to new ventures, the world in which we live and work is shrinking rapidly. Many more countries attempt to become an economic player and US competitor as the global economy emerges. Rapidly expanding technologies and communications are enabling more countries to become borderless within a global economic community of creative destruction competitors on a global stage and 24 hour global clock. There is a convergence of five powerful forces BIG data captured and retrieved by virtualization digital storage, mobile computing, expanded use of social media, cloud computing, and SaaS applications as businesses move closer to achieving the possibilities of the new gig economy, where all five forces are mature, implemented, and truly integrated rather than precariously bolted on. These five forces offer a new set of tools for business, opening the door to a new set of rules for operations, performance, and competition, making just-in-time freelancing and free-agent contracting more attractive. These are uncommon times to have five powerful forces all newly emerged, all evolving, all technology-centric already impacting businesses. It is an opportunity for IT to deliver extraordinary value via modest investments on top of a strong legacy technology footprint. These tectonic changes advance at a time when our worldwide talent pool is shrinking, increased migration from rural to larger cities, and global cohorts entering their senior years adding to the financial burden for elderly care globally. To survive this chaos, work is continuously being redefined, business models can change on the fly, and a new form of business structure, leadership, management, and workforce emerges in the new gig economy. Millions of retiring baby boomers getting off the corporate merry-go-round will play a crucial role as freelancers and free agents in bridging the gaps in skills, talent, business wisdom, and sustainability
