Le Border Collie
L'ouvrage s'adresse aux éleveurs confrontés aux problèmes de manutention et de contention de troupeaux. Il intéresse aussi un large panel d'utilisateurs ruraux ou citadins, employant déjà l'animal ou souhaitant en savoir plus. Il permet de comprendre ce chien exceptionnel qu'est le Border Collie, en présentant et en analysant ses capacités spécifiques. Le lecteur y puisera une aide précieuse pour élever et éduquer son compagnon de labeur ou de loisirs, afin qu'il exprime au mieux son potentiel génétique et aborde le travail auquel il est destiné avec le maximum d'efficacité. Il y trouvera également une ouverture à la sélection par le rappel de quelques principes et la présentation des lignées et origines s'étant illustrées dans les différentes disciplines. Chien de berger le plus connu et le plus utilisé par les professionnels, le Border Collie, originaire de Grande-Bretagne, s'est adapté partout dans le monde aux différentes espèces et aux types d'élevage en devenant le partenaire indispensable de nombreux éleveurs. Son introduction en France dans les années soixante a totalement changé et modernisé la perception du chien comme outil de travail sur les exploitations agricoles où sa présence est synonyme de gain de temps et de moindre stress pour les animaux. Les exceptionnelles qualités du Border, que l'on ne retrouve dans aucune autre race, sont dues à une sélection continue sur les aptitudes au troupeau. Elles lui ont permis de s'imposer également dans d'autres disciplines où il suscite un véritable engouement.

Since its publication, Existence has been regarded as the most important, complete, and lucid account of the existentialist approach to psychology. From the works of the leading spokesmen of the existential analytic movement, the editors have selected classic case histories and other writings to define the approach that seeks to understand mental illness, in the words of Rollo May, "...not as deviations from the conceptual yardstick of this or that psychiatrist...but as deviations in the structure of the particular patient's existence, the disruptions of his condition humane."

Handbook of Classroom Management
Classroom management is a topic of enduring concern for teachers, administrators, and the public. It consistently ranks as the first or second most serious educational problem in the eyes of the general public, and beginning teachers consistently rank it as their most pressing concern during their early teaching years. Management problems continue to be a major cause of teacher burnout and job dissatisfaction. Strangely, despite this enduring concern on the part of educators and the public, few researchers have chosen to focus on classroom management or to identify themselves with this critical field. The Handbook of Classroom Management has four primary goals: 1) to clarify the term classroom management; 2) to demonstrate to scholars and practitioners that there is a distinct body of knowledge that directly addresses teachers’ managerial tasks; 3) to bring together disparate lines of research and encourage conversations across different areas of inquiry; and 4) to promote a vigorous agenda for future research in this area. To this end, 47 chapters have been organized into 10 sections, each chapter written by a recognized expert in that area. Cutting across the sections and chapters are the following themes: *First, positive teacher-student relationships are seen as the very core of effective classroom management. *Second, classroom management is viewed as a social and moral curriculum. *Third, external reward and punishment strategies are not seen as optimal for promoting academic and social-emotional growth and self-regulated behavior. *Fourth, to create orderly, productive environments teachers must take into account student characteristics such as age, developmental level, race, ethnicity, cultural background, socioeconomic status, and ableness. Like other research handbooks, the Handbook of Classroom Management provides an indispensable reference volume for scholars, teacher educators, in-service practitioners, and the academic libraries serving these audiences. It is also appropriate for graduate courses wholly or partly devoted to the study of classroom management.
