This book represents the 14th in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series and concentrates on how service-learning can be successfully incorporated in engineering programs, a discipline to which is it relatively new. Contributors to the volume are experienced in using service-learning and address issues of concern to engineering educators. As one peer reviewer commented, "The audience for this [book] is the engineering education community--that community will expect practical applications of the theory that will lead to improved engineering education."
Based on the premise that teachers can only provide effective support for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties if they feel supported themselves, this book offers a model in which to set up support networks and practical activities which promote the notions of peer support and teamwork. The authors provide encouragement for increased collaboration between teachers so that they can learn to look at problems objectively and develop systems to share resources and strategies.

Rethinking the Region
argues that regions are not simply bounded spaces on a map. This book uses unique research of England during the 1980s to show how regions are made and unmade by social processes. The book examines how new lines of division both social and geographical were laid down as free-market growth and reconstructed this are as a `neo-liberal' region.
The authors argue that a more balanced form of growth is possible - within and between regions as well as between social groups. This book shows that to grasp the complexities of growth we must rethink `the region' in time as well as in space.

 Doing Your Business Doing Your Business
by F. Ravenel Griffith

"Doing Your Business is a comprehensive guide that provides step-by-step directions for owning a business. It uses the personal approach to solving the many problems that can confront owners as they travel along the road of satisfying market demands and operational efficiency. It emphasizes that all business owners are not experienced in the techniques of supervision or the skills of management. As such, this nature is shared by many small "Mom and Pop" stores, Dot.coms, light industries, or service entities.

Through its pages, readers will find guidance about when consultants should be hired and when the owner may do his or her own consulting to save the costs of outsourcing. Griffith cuts
through the maze of getting equipment for a business and reveals how shortcuts may be made to encourage employee participation in finding better ways of doing business. Also discussed are
procedures, and many of the prime policies are listed for their inclusion within a company policy manual. Lastly, an outline is given on how an owner may personally rate the business and how
he or she may get feedback from the customers.

Richly layered and informative, Doing Your Business talks about how to organize any business and how to measure progress while looking at employee needs and training."
This manual contains four major components:

1) An easy-to-follow discussion of the Standard's requirements, along with a plan for implementing management responsibilities;
2) A fill-in schedule for assigning key responsibilities and establishing deadlines;
3) A copy of the OSHA Lab Standard for easy reference;
4) A Chemical Hygiene Plan that has been developed in accordance with the requirements of paragraph (e) of the Standard.
The Psychology of Management focuses on "systems thinking" in exploring the untold number of forces constantly working within modern organizations. This intriguing examination explores how some forces are "driving" the workplace in one direction while other forces work to "restrain" that movement. Keith Pounds shows how to prevent the inevitable "friction" caused by the inadequate management of these often unseen and immeasurable forces. Readers will also come to better understand and work with the array of employee personalities encountered in the workplace and gain a fascinating look at varying management styles and how they are best put to use. Perhaps most importantly, The Psychology of Management precisely defines some of the most pervasive management and leadership biases and how they can adversely affect good decision-making. It will help managers become better equipped in understanding the inner-most workings of modern organizations and ensure that they and their organizations become much more competitive.
