Highlighting the threats that an overreliance on technology poses for teacher creativity, student voice, and the well-being of democracy, Moving beyond Technicism in English-Language Teacher Education advocates a critical approach to education. Using the author´s own personal experiences, this book offers a critical analysis of the technicist English-language teacher education programs introduced by Turkey´s Council of Higher Education in the neoliberal period. Beginning with the implementation of critical education in the early years of the Republic of Turkey, the book documents how teacher education practices in Turkey evolved from liberal to mechanic with the influence of the Cold War. By shedding light on the transformative actions of a teacher in eastern Turkey, the book explores the impact of critical teacher education on preservice and in-service teachers´ perceptions and practice. Highlighting the ethical responsibilities of educators, the book calls for a critical, democratic, and humanizing approach to teacher preparation.

This English translation of a well-known Japanese book covers interfacial physicochemistry in materials science, especially for iron- and steelmaking processes. Interfacial Physical Chemistry of High-Temperature Melts bridges the gap between the basics and applications of physicochemistry. The book begins with an overview of the fundamentals of interfacial physical chemistry and discusses surface tension, describing the derivation of important equations to guide readers to a deep understanding of the phenomenon. The book then goes on to introduce interfacial properties of high-temperature melts, especially the Marangoni effect, and discusses applications to materials processing at high temperature focusing on recent research results by the author and the co-workers. This book is aimed at researchers, graduate students, and professionals in materials processing. Video clips of in-situ observation including experiments under microgravity condition and x-ray observation are available for download on the publisher´s website to allow for a deeper understanding.
