The nice expanse of Arctic and Sub-Arctic lands that extend around the northern fringe of the yank continent is as tough and significant to people as any on the planet. The Athapaskan-speaking Indians who made it their domestic by no means captured the mind's eye of renowned writers as did the Eskimo who lived on their northern borders and the Plains Indians who lived to the south. other than to anthropologists, the Athapaskans have remained in relative obscurity, identified in detail in basic terms to the missionaries, the investors and trappers, and the prospectors who invaded their forbidding territory.
VanStone has captured the weather of the fundamental adaptive procedure through which those Indians mastered their intransigent atmosphere and made it their domestic over many centuries, and in doing so, he has maybe additionally came upon the explanations why they've got no longer had as a lot impression on Western idea as different local american citizens. The Plains Indians, with the blood and thunder in their raidings, the person drama in their imaginative and prescient quests, appealed to that a part of our tradition that used to be cast at the frontier the place either motion and isolation have been basic characteristics. The Eskimos, with their problematic know-how for extracting a livelihood from the Arctic ice appealed to Yankee ingenuity.
Athapaskan tradition was once of a unique order--less dramatic, yet no much less adaptive. Northern lands are usually not richly endowed with sustenance for human lifestyles. those diversifications haven't in basic terms required skillability with instruments and methods for exploiting this hard habitat, but in addition the construction of associations for collaboration in those endeavors. Hunters and Fishermen of the Arctic Forests illuminates this really imprecise quarter of the realm and brings it, and the cultures it supported, into the context of recent anthropological research.

Bei der Frage der Reformierung des Übergangssystems können wir auf eine über drei Jahrzehnte dauernde Geschichte zurückblicken. Als temporäres Unterstützungsangebot gedacht, zeugen Begriffe wie „Maßnahmedschungel“ und „Warteschleife“ von einer Ernüchterung hinsichtlich der Realisierung von Reformansprüchen beim Übergang von der Schule in die Ausbildung. Dennoch ist der Reformeifer nach wie vor ungebrochen. Die Vielzahl an Programmen und Initiativen signalisieren nicht nur ein wachsendes Problembewusstsein, sondern auch, dass nicht zuletzt durch die Reformen der Reformbedarf steigt. Aus der Organisationsforschung ist bekannt, dass ein wesentliches Resultat von Reformen die Erzeugung eines Bedarfs für weitere Reformen ist, used to be dazu führt, dass bisherige Reformen als unbefriedigend wahrgenommen werden und gleichzeitig die Ansprüche an zukünftige Reformen wachsen. Nach dem Planungs- und Steuerungsoptimismus der 1980er Jahre lässt sich gegenwärtig eine neue Qualität in der Diskussion um das Übergangssystem zu verzeichnen. Die vielfach empirisch belegte Kritik am Übergangssystem – Unübersichtlichkeit, mangelnde Effizienz, zu hohe Kosten, Stigmatisierung von ausbildungsplatzlosen Jugendlichen – wird selbst zum Gegenstand der Reformen. Die vorliegenden Beiträge in diesem Band greifen die Ernüchterung bei der Bewältigung der Übergangsproblematik auf und diskutieren weiterführende theoretische und empirische Ansätze.
