"The Anthropology of Stuff" is part of a new Series dedicated to innovative, unconventional ways to connect undergraduate students and their lived concerns about our social world to the power of social science ideas and evidence. Our goal with the project is to help spark social science imaginations and in doing so, new avenues for meaningful thought and action. Each "Stuff" title is a short (100 page) "mini text" illuminating for students the network of people and activities that create their material world. From the coffee producers and pickers who tend the plantations in tropical nations, to the middlemen and processors, to the consumers who drink coffee without ever having to think about how the drink reached their hands, here is a commodity that ties the world together. This is a great little book that helps students apply anthropological concepts and theories to their everyday lives, learn how historical events and processes have shaped the modern world and the contexts of their lives, and how consumption decisions carry ramifications for our health, the environment, the reproduction of social inequality, and the possibility of supporting equity, sustainability and social justice.

Diese Ausgabe von "Die Bekenntnisse" wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) war ein französischsprachiger Schriftsteller, Philosoph, Pädagoge, Naturforscher und Komponist der Aufklärung. Rousseau hatte großen Einfluss auf die politische Theorie des späten 18. sowie des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts in ganz Europa. Er war ein wichtiger Wegbereiter der Französischen Revolution. Sein Werk ist unlösbarer Bestandteil der französischen und europäischen Literatur- und Geistesgeschichte. In Rousseaus pädagogischem Hauptwerk Émile oder über die Erziehung wird die fiktive Erziehung eines Jungen beschrieben. Rousseaus Theorien beeinflussten Immanuel Kant und viele namhafte Pädagogen, so z. B. Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, Joachim Heinrich Campe, Adolph Diesterweg, Maria Montessori, Ellen Key, Hartmut von Hentig und Dietrich Benner. "

Eine Reise nach Amerika, davon hat Oberinspektor Chen schon lange geträumt. Und nun soll der dichtende Polizist als Leiter einer Schriftstellerdelegation für zwei Wochen Gast in den USA sein. Doch diese einmalige Gelegenheit kommt für Chen mehr als ungünstig. Denn er hat einen Auftrag erhalten, der, gefährlich und ehrenvoll zugleich, seinen vollen Einsatz in Shanghai erfordert: Nach dem Tod eines Polizisten in einem Bordell verpflichtet ihn die oberste Behörde, endlich den "Roten Ratten", korrupten Beamten und schmiergeldzahlenden Neokapitalisten, das Handwerk zu legen. Doch schon bei den ersten Recherchen muss Chen feststellen, dass er es mit einflussreichen Parteikadern zu tun bekommen wird, die vor nichts zurückschrecken. Der vierte Fall aus der beliebten Krimi-Reihe mit Oberinspektor Chen.
