Abstract

"This book compares and contrasts publicly espoused security concepts in the Nordic region, and explores the notion of societal security. Outside observers often assume that Nordic countries take similar approaches to the security and safety of their citizens. This book challenges that assumption and traces the evolution of ‘societal security’, and its broadly equivalent concepts, in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The notion of societal security is deconstructed and analysed in terms of its different meanings and implications for each country, through both country- and issue-focused studies. Each chapter traces the evolution of key security concepts and related practices, allowing for a comparison of similarities and differences between these four countries. Using discourses and practices as evidence, this is the first book to explore how different Nordic nations have conceptualised domestic security over time. The findings will be valuable to scholars from across the geographical and theoretical spectrum, while highlighting how Nordic security discourses and practices may deviate from traditional assumptions about Nordic values. This book will be of much interest to students of security studies, Nordic politics and International Relations."

Abstract

Die vorliegende Arbeit befaßt sich mit der Problematik menschlicher Identität in den mittleren Werken Gogol's; den Erzählungen, die später unter dem Sammelbegriff "Petersburger Erzählungen" zusammengefaßt worden sind, sowie in der Komödie "Revizor". Kommentare Gogol's aus späteren Jahren, beispielsweise die "Ausgewählten Stellen aus dem Briefwechsel mit Freunden" sowie Aussagen in Briefen, werden auf diese früheren Erzählungen bezogen, um eine Kontinuität im Seinsverständnis und in gewissem Grade auch in der Intention des Autors Gogol' zu belegen.

Abstract

Within the overlapping fields of the sociology of sport, physical education and health education, the use of critical theories and the critical research paradigm has grown in scope. Yet what social impact has this research had? This book considers the capacity of critical research and associated social theory to play an active role in challenging social injustices or at least in ‘making a difference’ within health and physical education (HPE) and sporting contexts. It also examines how the use of different social theories impacts sport policies, national curricula and health promotion activities, as well as the practices of HPE teaching and sport training and competition. Critical Research in Sport, Health and Physical Education is a valuable resource for academics and students working in the fields of research methods, sociology of sport, physical education and health.
