Managing Knowledge in UK Social Care
Joseph J. Long
Situated practice research offers rich possibilities for recognising and developing practitioner knowledge in social care. In this article, I document the application of anthropological methods and thinking within a research programme in autism services. Drawing on Donald Schön's model of the reflective practitioner, I argue that participant observation, aimed at the holistic documentation of autism services, provides a means to systematic reflection, comparison and learning in order to inform practice. This approach stands to broaden the field of autism research from unidirectional models of knowledge ‘translation’ to include research and insights generated from services. I also advocate the relational nature of anthropology as a means to meaningfully engage autistic people with intellectual disabilities in research through collaboration with practitioner researchers.
The Promise of Schooling for Boys
Michael C. Reichert and Joseph Nelson
Extended editorial introduction to a double special issue on boys and schooling. Adopting a developmental perspective on boyhood, the editors frame these special issues on boys' education by reviewing research on their experience of schooling. In particular, they endeavor to illuminate boys' agency and opportunities they can find in schools for resistance to restrictive masculine regimes.

While the first of these issues concentrated on the riots in England following the global financial crash of 2008, this second issue focuses on the social movements that emerged in this context. Whilst defining a social movement is conceptually problematic- either because it could be so narrow to exclude, or, to broad to include, any type of collective action, there are certain features that we can point to. Edwards (2014: 4-5) provides four conceptual distinctions.

The years since the onset of global recession, circa 2008, have led to an unprecedented rise in discontent in societies around the world. Whether this be the Arab Spring of 2011 when popular uprisings against authoritarian regimes cascaded across North Africa and the Middle East, or the rise of left-wing, anti-capitalist and far-right movements in the developed 'north', ranging from the Indignados in Spain, Syriza and the Golden Dawn in Greece, Le Front National in France, student movements in Quebec, or the allegedly less articulate explosion of rage characterizing the English Riots of 2011, it is clear that Fukuyama's thesis regarding the final ascendency of liberal capitalism (and its puppet regimes in the developing world) was grossly misplaced. In Badiou's (2012) terms we are witnessing 'the rebirth of history', where all bets regarding the trajectories of local and global political economies are off.

Notes on contributors
I think highly of Uri Bar-Joseph’s scholarship on Israeli national security, which is why I was so dismayed to read his harsh review of my book, Defense and Diplomacy in Israel’s National Security Experience, and why I feel compelled to respond to his misplaced criticisms.

A local historian of Epinal and professor at the Lycée wrote a short article in La Liberté de l’Est on Durkheim as a native of Espinal and a ‘grand philosophe’. The author, Robert Javelet (1914-86), had become a friend of Henri Durkheim (1881-1978) – the only child of Joseph Félix Durkheim, Emile Durkheim’s elder brother. Henri’s mother died when he was very young, and his father died in 1889. Uncle Emile, who had married in 1887, became very much the orphan’s guardian and adopted father. Henri and Marcel Mauss, who was a little older than himself, lived in Bordeaux for several years. Henri became a judge on the outskirts of Paris. His acquaintance with Javelet must have occurred on Henri’s visits to Epinal. It was from his conversations with Henri Durkheim that Javelet constructed this article.
