A Sampling of New Titles from ebrary

Beyond Sustainability - Tim Delaney
Call Number: E-Book
ISBN: 9781476615165
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
This forward-looking text approaches the study of the environment from two academic disciplines--sociology and philosophy. Both sociologists and philosophers have concerns about our environment's ability not only to sustain itself, but also to reach a point where it can actually thrive. This book examines the differences between sustainability and thrivability and discusses such topics as sociological and philosophical environmentalism, the ecosystem, and mass extinctions. It provides a review of some of the major human causes (e.g., hydro-fracking, the use of plastics, food waste, deforestation, and poor agriculture practices) that will likely bring about the sixth mass extinction. It considers the skepticism toward humans as the cause of a deteriorating environment and details nature's adverse role in harming the environment. It examines ways to help the environment thrive, and discusses the concept of environmental happiness. Finally, the text gives reasons why choosing a thrivability approach is not only possible but beneficial, and discusses practical ways in which thrivability can be taught, both in academic settings and through community efforts.

Building a Culture for Sustainability - Jeana Wirtenberg
Call Number: E-Book
ISBN: 9781440803772
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
In their own words, leaders, managers, and employees from nine global companies explain how they are turning their visions into reality. Sustainability and human resources expert Jeana Wirtenberg describes how these companies are transforming challenges into opportunities by opening their minds to the megatrends that will define the future. The vast majority of today's CEOs consider sustainability essential to their company's success, yet most do not know how to embed it into their company and its culture. This book guides firms of all types and sizes from those organizations just starting their journey to sustainability, to those seeking to accelerate their positive impact on people, reduce their negative environmental impact, and improve their bottom line. Wirtenberg shows readers how extraordinary results are possible by engaging the hearts and minds of employees throughout the organization."

Power of Metaphor - Mark J. Ed. Landau; Mark J. Landau
Call Number: E-Book
ISBN: 9781433815799
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
A metaphor is far more than a figure of speech. Social psychologists now believe that our use of metaphor is a deeply ingrained cognitive mechanism that influences how we think, feel, and behave in our everyday dealings with one another. This richly documented book demonstrates the power of conceptual metaphor theory to illuminate a wide range of behaviors. Experts explain how conceptual metaphor underlies and informs our perception of others, our decision-making, and our moral and social judgments-and how it can lead to persistent social problems, including prejudice, intergroup conflict, and aggression. Discussions of theory are enriched by a focus on practical implications for addressing social problems. Book jacket.

Soul of Anime - Ian Condry
Call Number: E-Book
ISBN: 9780822397557
Publication Date: 2013-01-01
In The Soul of Anime, Ian Condry explores the emergence of anime, Japanese animated film and television, as a global cultural phenomenon. Drawing on ethnographic research, including interviews with artists at some of Tokyo's leading animation studios--such as Madhouse, Gonzo, Aniplex, and Studio Ghibli--Condry discusses how anime's fictional characters and worlds become platforms for collaborative creativity. He argues that the global success of Japanese animation has grown out of a collective social energy that operates across industries--including those that produce film, television, manga (comic books), and toys and other licensed merchandise--and connects fans to the creators of anime. For Condry, this collective social energy is the soul of anime.
