Ireland’s landscape is marked by fault lines of religious, ethnic, and political identity that have shaped its troubled history. Troubled Geographies maps this history by detailing the patterns of change in Ireland from 16th century attempts to "plant" areas of Ireland with loyal English Protestants to defend against threats posed by indigenous Catholics, through the violence of the latter part of the 20th century and the rise of the "Celtic Tiger." The book is concerned with how a geography laid down in the 16th and 17th centuries led to an amalgam based on religious belief, ethnic/national identity, and political conviction that continues to shape the geographies of modern Ireland. Troubled Geographies shows how changes in religious affiliation, identity, and territoriality have impacted Irish society during this period. It explores the response of society in general and religion in particular to major cultural shocks such as the Famine and to long term processes such as urbanization.

Prior to the recent global financial crisis, it was assumed Baby Boomers would retire in massive numbers and there would be a dearth of unskilled younger workers prepared to take their place (Kunreuther, 2010). As a result of the Great Recession, Baby Boomers have chosen to remain at work longer, alongside those members of the Greatest Generation, Generation X and the Millennials. For the first time in history, a multi-generational workforce poised with an influx of Millennial leaders, has created numerous challenges for hospitality businesses. This case was written to explore generational characteristics while examining potential strategies Millennials could utilize to lead a cross-generational hospitality workforce.

Bridge the generation-communication gap It's hard to believe. Almost three decades can separate your youngest staff members from the oldest. While the 20-something, "Generation Y" nurses are concerning themselves with flexible scheduling and paid time off, their over-60, "Traditional" counterparts are light years away--worrying about pension plans and professional recognition. In between, you have to contend with "Generation X" staffers and "Baby Boomers" who are clamoring for an entirely different set of needs and priorities. Whatever you call them--Generation Y or Millennials; Traditionals or Silents; Generation X, Baby Boomers--managing your multigenerational staff can add up to a very gnarly problem.Don't let generation gaps lead to miscommunication and staff conflict In order to manage a multigenerational workforce successfully, the nurse manager has to take into consideration each generation's unique priorities, motivators, skills, communication styles, and experiences. That's a tall order for any manager--but especially in today's stressful hospital environment. Until now, help has been hard to find. Judith "Ski" Lower RN, CCRN, CNRN, MSN, a well-known and highly respected nursing expert, addresses the problem head-on in her new book, "A Practical Guide to Managing the Multigenerational Workforce: Skills for Nurse Managers." Drawing on her many years of experience successfully managing across the generation gap, Lower's helpful new book will show you how to: Identify generational differences Identify the main characteristics and formative years of the Traditional Generation (The Silents), Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y so you can understand their reactions and what motivates them. Recognize educational styles that work for each generation Online? Classroom? Self-paced? Hands-on? Discover different educational methods that appeal to multiple generations. Identify and provide the feedback each generation wants and needs Silent Generation nurses may have little interest in annual performance reviews, while Generation X nurses want feedback instantaneously. Understand how to provide personal feedback and effective performance reviews. Illustrate improved scheduling by understanding generational needs Silent Generation nurses may prefer a consistent schedule. Generation Y nurses may require flexibility to meet the needs of their young families. Understanding your staff's needs will help you create schedules that work for all. Formulate retention strategies that work for every generation Generation X nurses may respond best to promotions or pay increases. Baby Boomer nurses may be motivated by recognition and service awards. Learn what feedback works best for each member of your staff. Develop policies to embrace differences to manage more effectively Gain a better understanding of each generation's motivators and learning styles along with proven strategies to facilitate communication and encourage respect.

More than 1.3 million Korean Americans live in the United States, the majority of them foreign-born immigrants and their children, the so-called 1.5 and second generations. While many sons and daughters of Korean immigrants outwardly conform to the stereotyped image of the upwardly mobile, highly educated super-achiever, the realities and challenges that the children of Korean immigrants face in their adult lives as their immigrant parents grow older and confront health issues that are far more complex. In Caring Across Generations, Grace J. Yoo and Barbara W. Kim explore how earlier experiences helping immigrant parents navigate American society have prepared Korean American children for negotiating and redefining the traditional gender norms, close familial relationships, and cultural practices that their parents expect them to adhere to as they reach adulthood. Drawing on in-depth interviews with 137 second and 1.5 generation Korean Americans, Yoo & Kim explore issues such as their childhood experiences, their interpreted cultural traditions and values in regards to care and respect for the elderly, their attitudes and values regarding care for aging parents, their observations of parents facing retirement and life changes, and their experiences with providing care when parents face illness or the prospects of dying. A unique study at the intersection of immigration and aging, Caring Across Generations provides a new look at the linked lives of immigrants and their families, and the struggles and triumphs that they face over many generations.

If you are a manager, human resources professional or business owner, you are faced with these types of issues every day. But why? Because currently, there are five generations in the workplace: Radio Babies (born during 1930-1945); Baby Boomers (1946-1964); Generation X (1965-1976); Generation Y (1977-1991); even some Millennials (1991 and later). Each of them has a different perspective, based on their upbringing and daily lives. The key to making encounters between the generations successful is learning to understand the point of view of each generation and respect their differences. The individuals and organizations that do this will be the ones to succeed. This book will show you how. Authors Gravett and Throckmorton take a dynamic approach to the situation by writing in two distinct voices — as a Baby Boomer and a Gen Xer — using a "point-counterpoint" approach to identify differences and similarities across generations. They share hands-on experiences, real-life cases, recommended solutions and ground-breaking research on how members of any generation can better relate to minimize conflict, miscommunication and wasted energy. You will learn what each generation thinks of the others and how each wishes the others viewed it. Bridging the Generation Gap is filled with strategies and solutions you can implement immediately to help build your own bridge between the generations.
