"Drawing on over a decade of field experiences in Latin America as well as a burgeoning literature about the psychological and social effects of war and disasters, Martín Beristain developed this volume at the interface of theory and practice as one response to these complex social and political realities. Humanitarian Aid Work offers an excellent introduction to those seeking to respond to the complex social, political, cultural, and linguistic diversities within any humanitarian crisis."—from the Foreword Throughout the world, there is a rising need for humanitarian aid. Enormous resources are being devoted to it; more organizations carry out cooperative projects; and emergency actions have grown to unprecedented levels. However, such expansion has not always meant that relief has been more adequately provided to victims, nor has it always had positive effects in reconstructing the social fabric. This book helps us to understand how people respond to traumatic experiences in extraordinary circumstances and to appreciate the social and cultural context in which these responses occur. Carlos Martín Beristain offers a psychosocial approach that advocates a cultural sensitivity for humanitarian action and the work of collaboration, assistance, and accompaniment. He suggests alternative ideas for social reconstruction in such areas as prevention, care of victims, collective memory, respect for human rights, and help to the helpers. Humanitarian Aid Work offers a constructive approach to the problems of groups affected by violence, catastrophe, or emergency situations. It is intended as a critical manual for aid workers. Academic research in psychology and the social sciences—as well as the author's experience in Central and South America—has been summarized to yield clear, action-oriented guidance. Research results from Europe, Africa, and Asia are also incorporated.

Auch die Britischen Inseln waren von der wikingerzeitlichen Expansion ab dem 8. Jh. betroffen. Nordlich und westlich des danischen Danelag in England entstanden norwegische Siedlungen auf den Shetland- und Orkneyinseln, in Nordschottland, auf den Hebriden, an der schottischen und nordenglischen Westkuste, um die Irische See herum und sudwarts. Waren die Nordleute anfangs als Plunderer und Eroberer unterwegs, wirkten sie bald auch als Handler und Stadt- und Staatengrunder. Der daraus resultierende keltisch-westnordische Sprachkontakt hielt ein halbes Jahrtausend an und hinterliess Spuren im Norn, der fruhneuzeitlichen nordischen Sprache, die bis ins 18. Jh. auf den Shetland- und Orkneyinseln und in Caithness gesprochen wurde. So finden sich Keltizismen sowohl in den wenigen Aufzeichnungen des Norn als auch im nordischen Substrat der schottischen Gegenwartsmundarten, die das Norn ablosten.The British Isles were among the geographical areas affected by the Viking expansion from the 8th century onwards. North and west of the Danish Danelaw, Norwegian settlements were established on Shetland and Orkney, in Northern Scotland, on the Hebrides, along the west coast of Scotland and Northern England, around the Irish Sea and even further south. Raiders and conquerors at the outset, the Norsemen soon became traders and founded towns and states. The resulting language contact between Celtic and Old West Norse lasted half a millennium and left its mark on Norn, an early modern Nordic language spoken on Shetland, Orkney and in Caithness until the 18th century. Thus, Celticisms can be found both in the few written records of Norn and in the Nordic substratum of those varieties of Modern Scots that came to supplant Norn."
