Indian, European, and African women of seventeenth and eighteenth-century America were defenders of their native land, pioneers on the frontier, willing immigrants, and courageous slaves. They were also - as traditional scholarship tends to omit - as important as men in shaping American culture and history. This remarkable work is a gripping portrait that gives early-American women their proper place in history.

Over the past few decades universities have opened their doors to students whose parents and grandparents were historically excluded from societal participation and higher education for reasons associated with racial, ethnic, socio-economic and/or linguistic diversity. Many of these students are first generation - or first in their family to attend university. While some progress has been made in responding to the needs of these internationally underserved learners, many challenges remain. This edited book features the unique and diverse experiences of first generation students as they transition into and engage with higher education whilst exploring ways in which universities might better serve these students. With reference to culturally responsive and sustaining research methodologies undertaken in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and the USA, the contributors critically examine how these students demonstrate resilience within university, and ways in which success and challenges are articulated. Elements that are unique to context and shared across the international higher education milieu are explored. The book is replete with diverse student voices, and compelling implications for practice and future research. The studies featured are centred on underlying theories of identity and intersectionality while valuing student voices and experiences. Throughout, the emphasis is on using strengths-based indigenous and decolonised methodologies. Through these culturally sustaining approaches, which include critical incident technique, participatory learning and action, talanoa and narrative inquiry, the book explores rich data on first generation student experiences at seven institutions in six countries across four continents.

"The challenge of retaining the second generation in immigrant churches to America has persisted for more than two hundred years.Dr. Nhiem Tran's study makes a very important contribution to the literature on this topic and provides very practical insights from his data and his personal ministry on how Vietnamese church leaders may reverse the exodus of the second generation and integrate these gifted men and women into the ministry of the church. Dr. Sherwood Lingenfelter, PhD, Senior Professorand Provost Emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary "Nhiem Tran's research accurately identifies ministry challenges in the Vietnamese church community that tend to be common in many immigrant communities. Specifically, emphasis is given to generational struggles and misunderstandings that often alienate younger potential ministry leaders. This resource provides helpful recommendations to address these ministry issues both in their resolution and prevention." Dr. Dennis H. Dirks, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus Former Dean, Talbot School ofTheology, FormerDean of AcademicAdministration, Biola University. "Nhiem Tranhas blessed the church with a thoughtful analysis of the significant dynamics that impact leadership development forthe next generation in the American Vietnamese church. Tran boldlyidentifiespoints of tension between the generations, and showsthe secular origin of manyleadership values adopted by first generation leaders. This work gives the church a clear path forward for dialogue. Ultimately, the inter-generationaltensions and dynamics identified in this bookhave application in other immigrant churches. I commend his work for its importance." Dr. Michael D. Noel, D.Min., Superintendent, South Atlantic District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Your analysis of the cultural influences on structures in the church in Vietnam was very insightful and provides a strong matrix through which to observe the Vietnamese church in the United States. Your analysis applies in many respects to immigrant communities from Africa and to a lesser extent Latin America. I hope that your book will gain a broad readership among immigrant churches and district in The Christian and Missionary Alliance-and beyond. Rev. James A. Bollback, Assistant to the Superintendent, South Atlantic District of Christian and Missionary Alliance. NHIEM THAI TRAN (Doctor of the Church - D.Min. at ATS), is a leading pastor of Vietnamese Evangelical Church of North Carolina in Raleigh, NC. He is a member of District Executive Committee (DEXCOM) under the South Atlantic District of The C&MA and he is also a visiting professor at West African Theological Training Center in Monrovia, at Emmaus Biblical Seminary in Haiti, and at Vietnamese Bible Institute in Vietnam.

College Belonging reveals how colleges' and universities' efforts to foster a sense of belonging in their students are misguided. Colleges bombard new students with the message to "get out there!" and "find your place" by joining student organizations, sports teams, clubs and the like. Nunn shows that this reflects a flawed understanding of what belonging is and how it works. Drawing on the sociological theories of Emile Durkheim, College Belonging shows that belonging is something that members of a community offer to each other. It is something that must be given, like a gift. Individuals cannot simply walk up to a group or community and demand belonging. That's not how it works. The group must extend a sense of belonging to each and every member. It happens by making a person feel welcome, to feel that their presence matters to the group, that they would be missed if they were gone. This critical insight helps us understand why colleges' push for students simply to "get out there!" does not always work.

As seen in Time, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and on CBS This Morning, BBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR, iGen is crucial reading to understand how the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation. With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s up to the mid-2000s, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person—perhaps contributing to their unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. With the first members of iGen just graduating from college, we all need to understand them: friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.

This oral autobiography of two remarkable Cree women tells their life stories against a backdrop of government discrimination, First Nations activism, and the resurgence of First Nations communities. Nellie Carlson and Kathleen Steinhauer, who helped to organize the Indian Rights for Indian Women movement in western Canada in the 1960s, fought the Canadian government's interpretation of treaty and Aboriginal rights, the Indian Act, and the male power structure in their own communities in pursuit of equal rights for Aboriginal women and children. After decades of activism and court battles, First Nations women succeeded in changing these oppressive regulations, thus benefitting thousands of their descendants. Those interested in human rights, activism, history, and Native Studies will find that these personal stories, enriched by detailed notes and photographs, form a passionate record of an important, continuing struggle.

Because he was so shy of publicity, little is known about J. J. Leahy. He was called by some as the back-country baron, one of Australia’s most important early pastoralists. With a limited education and no money, he went on to build up a large pastoral empire. He owned or leased over one hundred extensive properties, and at one time, his wool clip was said to be the largest in Australia. He also ran sixty thousand head of cattle on these properties. His numerous big deals became legendary. His bank never required a mortgage over his assets to inance his big stock deals. All he needed to do was call his bank manager to let him know he was writing a cheque to cover his latest deal. He travelled irst by horse-drawn vehicles and then cars and inally was a pioneer in the use of aircraft to cover his area of interest, starting with a converted WWI Bristol ighter. At times he controlled one hundred thousand sheep walking on stock routes, besides those run on his large properties. On his travels, he often bought a large mob of sheep with a handshake. He was offered but refused a knighthood.

There are two sides to every story, and then there is the truth. A Legacy of Hate: The First Generation exposes the absolute truth, not sides of the truth in relations to generational practices such as witchcraft, rootwork, curses, and ethnic secrets in rural South Carolina. These rituals are passed through generations from mothers to daughters. In this book, two families are examined, the Youngbloods and the Greens.

This research utilized ten years of National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) data to identify differences between first- and non-first-generation students' relationship with supportive campus environment variables and learning outcomes. The dataset included 3,796 non-first-generation and 1,844 first-generation students that attended a research intensive public institution between 2003 and 2011. The main dependent variable was a composite measure of student learning gains across four areas: writing, speaking, thinking critically and analyzing numerical or statistical information. The results indicated that while supportive campus environments are critical for all students, first-generation students showed higher and more consistent statistical associations with campus environment variables measuring faculty and peer relationships as compared to non-first-generation students that showed highly significant relationships with variables measuring support from campus administration or support personnel. This finding could lend support to theories that first-generation students come to campus with less social capital related to the inner workings of university environments and as a result rely more heavily on peer and faculty relationships for increased learning outcomes as compared to non-first-generation students.

Immigrant children and youth are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, and so their prospects bear heavily on the well-being of the country. However, relevant public policy is shaped less by informed discussion than by politicized contention over welfare reform and immigration limits. From Generation to Generation explores what we know about the development of white, black, Hispanic, and Asian children and youth from numerous countries of origin. Describing the status of immigrant children and youth as "severely understudied," the committee both draws on and supplements existing research to characterize the current status and outlook of immigrant children. The book discusses the many factors--family size, fluency in English, parent employment, acculturation, delivery of health and social services, and public policies--that shape the outlook for the lives of these children and youth. The committee makes recommendations for improved research and data collection designed to advance knowledge about these children and, as a result, their visibility in current policy debates.

Antipsychotic medications are used to treat and manage symptoms for several psychiatric disorders and are commonly categorized into two classes. First-generation antipsychotics (FGAs), also known as “typical antipsychotics,” were developed in the 1950s. Second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs), also known as “atypical antipsychotics,” emerged in the 1980s. To date, FGAs have been classified according to their chemical structure, which includes serotonin-dopamine antagonists and multiacting receptor-targeted antipsychotics, whereas SGAs have been categorized according to their pharmacological properties as dopamine partial agonists. There is ongoing research testing the proposed mechanisms of action within each class with respect to the neurobiology of different psychiatric disorders. According to findings from the 2004–05 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, an estimated 2 million adult patients in the U.S. were prescribed an antipsychotic medication, three quarters of whom were taking an SGA. In 2003, an estimated $2.82 billion were spent in the country on these medications, with SGAs accounting for 93% of this expenditure. Today, 20 FGAs and SGAs are commercially available in the U.S. and approved by the FDA. Individuals taking antipsychotics may stop taking their medication for a number of reasons, including adverse events (AEs) and a lack of improvement in their symptoms. As a result, ongoing evaluations of drug efficacy and models of patient decisionmaking are essential. This Review provides a comprehensive synthesis of the evidence examining the benefits and harms associated with the use of FDA-approved FGAs and SGAs. This CER focuses on comparisons of individual medications rather than drug classes. This topic is important and timely, given the ongoing debate about the comparative benefits and harms of FGAs and SGAs. The focus of this report complements other recent reviews investigating different SGAs, the off-label use of antipsychotics, and FGAs versus SGAs in the pediatric population. The focus of this report is adults age 18 to 64 years with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, and bipolar disorder. The following Key Questions were investigated in the report: 1. For adults (age 18 to 64 years) with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, or bipolar disorder, what are the comparative efficacy and effectiveness of FGAs versus SGAs for improving core illness symptoms? 2. For adults (age 18 to 64 years) with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, or bipolar disorder, what is the comparative effectiveness of FGAs versus SGAs for improving functional outcomes and decreasing health care system utilization? 3. For adults (age 18 to 64 years) with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, or bipolar disorder, do FGAs and SGAs differ in medication-associated AEs and safety? 4. For adults (age 18 to 64 years) with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, or bipolar disorder, what is the comparative effectiveness of FGAs versus SGAs for the following other outcomes: Relapse and remission rates, Medication adherence and persistent use, Patient insight into illness, Health-related quality of life, Patient satisfaction, Comorbidity: endpoints of victimization, homelessness, and substance abuse, Patient-reported outcomes, Ability to obtain and retain employment and succeed in job duties, Concomitant use of other medications, especially those used to treat EPS, and Patient preferences. 5. For adults (age 18 to 64 years) with schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, or bipolar disorder, what are the comparative effectiveness and risks of FGAs versus SGAs in subgroups defined by the following variables? Disorder subtypes, Sex, Age group (18–35 years, 36–54 years, and 55–64 years), Race, Comorbidities, Drug dosage, Follow up period, Treatment of a first episode versus treatment in the context of previous episodes (previous exposure to antipsychotics), and Treatment resistance.
