Women and Households in Indonesia: Cultural Notions and Social Practices

Women and Households in Indonesia: Cultural Notions and Social Practices


Critically examines the usefulness of the ‘household; concept within the historically and culturally diverse context of Indonesia, exploring in detail the position of women within and beyond domestic arrangements. So far, classical household and kinship studies have not studied how women deal with two major forces which shape and define their world: local kinship traditions, and the universalising ideology of the Indonesian regime, which both provide prescriptions and prohibitions concerning family, marriage, and womanhood. Women are caught between these conflicting notions and practices. How they challenge or accommodate such forces is the main issue in this book.

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture


Literary culture has become a form of popular culture over the last fifteen years thanks to the success of televised book clubs, film adaptations, big-box book stores, online bookselling, and face-to-face and online book groups.

Practices in Children’s Nursing

Practices in Children’s Nursing


The skills required by children’s nurses are many and varied, and are undertaken in a variety of settings. Sick children are cared for at home, in children’s units and hospitals, and sometimes in adult wards. In addition, children with disabilities may need nursing care while at special schools or in residential settings. This book provides a clinical manual of common practices. Each practice is research-based and discussed within a common framework which covers: Objectives; Rationale; Factors to note; Guidelines; Positioning; Equipment; Method; Special observations and possible complications; and References and further reading. The guidelines have been written specifically for children’s nursing by contributors from well-known children’s units. They are not simply adaptations from adult practices and therefore recognize the unique differences between adult and children’s nursing. The introductory section covers common concepts and the control of infection. In addition, there are appendices on the use of play as a distraction, and on complementary therapies. All hospital and community nurses dealing with children, whether at home, in specialized units or in community settings, will find the book of great practical help.
