One of the important responsibilities of any state is to provide the social order in which the individual liberties of its citizens are protected. The State is required to ensure simultaneously and paradoxically a high level of individual freedom and an order in which such freedom is made possible and guaranteed. This book brings together academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines from more than twenty countries to reflect on the growing importance of these issues in our international community and how these concerns and ideas have been examined, used and interpreted in a range of national and international contexts. Contributors explore these issues from a range of overlapping concerns and perspectives, such as semiotic, sociolinguistic, psychological, philosophical, and visual in diverse socio-political, administrative, institutional, as well as legal contexts. The collection examines the ways in which 'actors' in our society - legislators, politicians, activists, and artists - have provoked public discourses to confront the issues of transparency, power and control.
In this fun-filled look at fractions, Brian P. Cleary and Brian Gable demonstrate how fractions work by splitting whole objects into parts. The comical cats of the wildly popular Words Are CATegorical series divide everything from pieces of pizza to groups of people into halves, thirds, tenths, and more. Peppy rhymes, goofy illustrations, and kid-friendly examples take the fear out of fractions.
