Edited By Elliott, John
Teacher education and training in the UK is under attack from the New Right and government policy-makers have been sufficiently influenced by its ideas to threaten the very existence of higher education-based teacher training. The attack has been very much directed toward theory-based training which is accused of promoting progressive theories that are politically biased in favour of left-wing egalitarian ideology. The over all effect, it is argued, is a failure to raise standards. The New Right, aided and abetted by the tabloid press, wants to see the removal of teacher training from higher education, and for it to be unambiguously located in the schools, where it can be linked to the "theory-free" development of practical skills. Elliott and his contributors do not offer a defence of current practice, but do provide a rationale for the continuing role for higher education while at the same time moving toward a more experimentally-based professional preparation. They articulate in some detail that the practice of teaching is neither a matter of applying ideas derived from theory rather than experience, nor simply a matter of applying instrumental technical skills, learned on-the-job, to produce standardized and measurable end-products. Teaching is best viewed as a practical science in which the relationship between theory and practice is interactive. Practical skills are not simply technical in character, but structured by values and understandings of how to act consistently with them.Previous owner's signature on ffep.265pp.

Gendered Anthropology will be of particular value to undergraduates and lecturers in social anthropology and gender studies. 227pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners slightly bumped.

Zhou, Zhongfei
This work conducts a critical examination of Chinese foreign banking law in the context of the international convergence of supervisory standards and practices. If China is to develop a modern and viable banking sector, it needs to put in place a suitable legal infrastructure which is consistent with emerging international supervisory standards, WTO requirements and aspirations for financial sector liberalization. The author argues that the current foreign banking laws are fundamentally out of line with international standards and practices in a number of respects and that legislators and supervisors do not at present appreciate or cultivate commonly accepted supervisory values. The author therefore proposes a set of reforms that would at the same time create a legal environment for competitive equality between foreign banks and protect the safety and soundness of the Chinese banking system. The issues considered include the licensing process for the entry of foreign banks into the Chinese market, the ongoing regulation of foreign banks and foreign bank crisis management or bank failure resolution. The author offers a proposed framework of Chinese foreign banking law which should be of great benefit to existing and prospective foreign banks in China. 241pp.
