What is it like to be a professional in today's Nordic public sector organisations? This book describes everyday problems experienced by individuals in official positions. The authors' analyses are set against a background of rising rates of sick leave, more cases of mental burnout, decreasing resources and constant demand for professional improvement. Rapid changes in organisations, such as new forms of leadership, new technology and management by documents and the call for client-oriented practices are part of the professional's working life. The individual professional is the prime focus of this book.Tensions that arise between the individual and the organisation/profession are illustrated by a range of examples of problems that public officials, such as teachers, policemen and nurses, are confronted with on a daily basis. The authors discuss subjects such as increased individualisation, complexity in relationships, intensified pace and fragmentation of work. This title intends to signal an invitation to further the research about a dynamic field where today's professionals meet the requirements of their professions and organisations.371pp.

Howe, Sonia E.
The mighty Russian Empire was not built in a day - from a small beginning and by a number of different processes it has grown to its present dimensions. For centuries it grew by immigration and colonisation, and it is only since the sixteenth century that expansion came by means of conquest. In the course of the ten and a half centuries of her existence, Russia's political centre has shifted three times: from Kiev to Vladimir, from Vladimir to Moscow, and from Moscow to St Petersburg. Each of these four names represents distinct phases of development and periods with very definite characteristics. This development has not been one of continuous growth: it was interrupted by a great calamity, the Mongol invasion, which darkened the thirteenth century, and from which it has taken centuries to recover. Again, the Russian nation is not a homogeneous whole, a nation of one blood; nor are her peoples all on the same level of culture. Unless these facts are grasped, and the causes underlying the complexity of Russian history come to be understood, there can be no exact comprehension or balanced judgement of her problems and difficulties, and the part she has to play among the nations. The aim in "A Thousand Years of Russian History" is to convey general impressions of the various stages passed through by Russia in the course of her evolution, and to give sketches of the lives of those of her rulers who have stamped their era with the mark of their personality. This book is a completely retyped and indexed version of the 1918 publication with the same name. 266pp.
