In the United States, the Common Core Standards, the C3 Frame-work for Social Studies Standards (NCSS), and the 10 themes of the National Curriculum Standards (NCS/NCSS) each pose challenges for teachers preparing to teach skills, content, and critical issues of American history. The problem for many middle and secondary teachers is that textbooks do not contain sufficient primary source documents and varied secondary literature linked to these stand-ards. The volumes in the Teaching Critical Themes in American His-tory fill this need by providing teachers with history content, peda-gogical strategies, and teaching resources. The series is organized around key problems/issues in American history so that teachers can select which critical topics upon which they might want to con-centrate.

Middle and Secondary pre-and in-service educators will find the books in this series essential for developing and implementing American history and social studies curriculum in diverse and com-plex classrooms. Teachers will find the books in this series valuable as they search for methodologies and material that will help them address the Common Core Standards in the social sciences and his-tory. Community College history instructors can also find the books in this series helpful as supplementary texts in their U.S. history survey courses. The practical—not to mention exciting—implementation of perspectives offered in each title is a key fea-ture of this series.

This series will address topics such as the formation of the Ameri-can Republic, the problem of slavery in America, causes of the Civil War, emancipation and reconstruction, America’s response to in-dustrialization, the New Deal, the fight for Civil Rights, and more. The Series Editors invite proposals for edited volumes in American history and social studies, along with articles and lesson plans for both the topics above, and other topics of the series.

Presented in collaboration with the BIT-AMENA (University of California, Berkeley iTechpreneurship in Asia, Middle East, and North Africa) Center for Building Innovation Economies, edited by Hossein Askari and Dariush Zahedi.

This series gathers research focusing on the idea that a prerequisite to successful actions to improve economic performance is "a viable polity that will put in place the necessary economic institutions and provide effective enforcement." Some—acknowledging that institutions are critical to any explanation of economic development—question why similar institutional structures produce different results in different countries. Others have concluded that what matters for good economic performance is how well institutions match their settings and how flexibly they adapt to changes as opposed to a specific design. In this vein, the series aims to curate research from scholars in the fields of economics, politics, law, technology and the humanities to gather interdisciplinary perspectives on institutional policy throughout the Islamicate world.

Die berufliche Kommunikation im deutschen Sprachraum erscheint angesichts der Globalisierung sowie der Dynamisierung und Differenzierung des Erwerbslebens zunehmend komplex und stellt den Menschen vielfach vor erhebliche sprachliche Herausforderungen. Daher gehört es zu den zentralen Aufgaben der Angewandten Sprachwissenschaft und der Didaktik des Deutschen als Erst-, Zweit- oder Fremdsprache, diese Herausforderungen zu analysieren und zu diskutieren sowie Wege aufzuzeigen, wie diese besser beherrscht werden können. Die Reihe Berufssprache Deutsch in Theorie und Praxis bildet ein Forum für einschlägige Monographien und Sammelbände und leistet somit einen wichtigen Beitrag für ein gleichermaßen attraktives wie aktuelles Forschungsgebiet.

Our second collaboration with the BIT-AMENA (University of California, Berkeley iTechpreneurship in Asia, Middle East, and North Africa) Center for Building Innovation Economies, this series focuses on how a financial system is comprised of different subsystems—such as the banking system, financial markets, capital markets, insurance, and derivatives—which are underpinned by legal and commercial infrastructure. When compared to the conventional system, the Islamic financial system has two distinct features: first, the prohibition of riba (interest), which eliminates the possibility of debt and of leveraging within the financial system, and second, the promotion of risk-sharing, facilitated through modes of transaction designed for investors to share the risks and rewards of investment on a more equitable basis. As such, the Islamic financial system is based on a banking system that operates without a debt economy, and instead promotes the financing of the real economy. Researchers have argued that an active and vibrant market of securitized assets, which has some resemblance to the conventional asset-based debt market, replaces the debt market and behaves and operates differently. We will subsequently examine the vital role that the stock market plays within a risk-sharing economy.

Edited by Serena Baiesi and Lilla Maria Crisafulli

This series is mainly focused on English literature produced in Europe between the 1750s and the 1830s. It aims to explore the key concepts regarding Romantic texts and aesthetics, such as the relationship between the writer and the natural world; context and history; sensibility and the sublime; gender roles; language and the power of the imagination; studies of genre; slavery and abolition; migration literature, consumer literature; social transformation; critical reception; and transnational relations.

The series welcomes studies on major as well as less well-known authors and literary genres, and on historical and cultural contexts of the period.
