Words Are Weapons : Inside ISIS’s Rhetoric of Terror
by Philippe-Joseph Salazar and Dorna Khazeni
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0300223226 | 256 Pages | ePUB | 2.49 MB
The first book to offer a rigorous, sophisticated analysis of ISIS’s rhetoric and why it is so persuasive.
ISIS wages war not only on the battlefield but also online and in the media. Through a close examination of the words and images ISIS uses, with particular attention to the digital caliphate on the web, Philippe-Joseph Salazar theorizes an aesthetic of ISIS and its self-presentation. As a philosopher and historian of ideas, well versed in both the Western and the Islamic traditions, Salazar posits an interpretation of Islam that places speechthe profession of faithat the center of devotion and argues that evocation of the simple yet profound utterance of faith is what gives power to the rhetoric that ISIS and others employ. At the same time, Salazar contends that Western discourse has undergone a rhetorical disarmament. To win the fight against ISIS and Islamic extremism, Western democracies, their media, politicians, and counterterrorism agencies must consider radically changing their approach to Islamic extremism.

Why Siblings Matter

Why Siblings Matter

Why Siblings Matter: The Role of Brother and Sister Relationships in Development and Well-Being
Routledge | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 1138641448 | 162 pages | PDF | 10.33 mb
by Naomi White (Author), Claire Hughes (Author)
Many people grow up with at least one sibling. These siblings are often fellow travellers’ through adversity or significant life events; they can act as a source of support for some children while a source of conflict for others. For these reasons, siblings are a potentially powerful influence on development and this book is one of the first of its kind to provide an overview of cutting-edge psychological research on this important relationship.
Why Siblings Matter is a cornerstone text on siblinghood. Integrating findings from a 10 year longitudinal study alongside wider research, it provides a lifespan perspective examining the impact of sibling relationships on children’s development and well-being. This text situates siblings in their historical, developmental and family context, considers the influence of siblings on children’s development and adjustment, and provides an introduction to new research on siblings in diverse contexts. The authors discuss sibling relationships in varied populations such as siblings with disabilities, siblings in different cultures and siblings in non-traditional families, while also considering the practical implications of research.
Covering both classical studies and new results this book offers take-home messages for promoting positive sibling interactions. It will be invaluable reading for students and researchers in developmental psychology and family studies and professionals in education, health and social work.

Why Cops Die (And How to Prevent It)
Charles C Thomas | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 0398092036 | 215 pages | PDF | 1.45 mb
by Gerald W. Garner (Author)
This book provides time- and experience-proven advice for responding safely and effectively to threats to a law enforcement officer fs safety. It relies on law enforcement fs bloody history to reveal what has gone wrong for a very long time and how to fix it so that no more cops die needlessly. This book identifies the cop killers and the fatal errors that cops make, and it explores how these incidents happen and why. Most important of all, the book goes into detail about how to prevent these terminal errors and furnishes to-the-point advice for avoiding them. These tactics and techniques work. It offers the same common sense advice that solid patrol sergeants have been sharing with their briefing room charges for a long while. It has been assembled by a police chief who spent 15 years as a sergeant. WHY COPS DIE can be used in a lot of ways, all of them useful for drastically reducing the number of officers who die on the job every year. It should be issued to every law enforcement academy recruit. It is aimed across the spectrum of the law enforcement organization from the rookie to the first-line supervisor to the command staff. Chiefs and sheriffs will find it of value, as will those directly responsible for the training of law enforcement officers. By applying practical, potentially lifesaving advice to their daily duties law enforcement fs first-line practitioners can sharply reduce the number of peacekeepers who die or are maimed in the future. That effort begins here
