The Master Plan
The inspiring, instructive, and ultimately triumphant memoir of a man who used hard work and a Master Plan to turn a life sentence into a second chance. Growing up in a tough Washington, D.C., neighborhood, Chris Wilson was so afraid for his life he wouldn't leave the house without a gun. One night, defending himself, he killed a man. At eighteen, he was sentenced to life in prison with no hope of parole. But what should have been the end of his story became the beginning. Deciding to make something of his life, Chris embarked on a journey of self-improvement--reading, working out, learning languages, even starting a business. He wrote his Master Plan: a list of all he expected to accomplish or acquire. He worked his plan every day for years, and in his mid-thirties he did the impossible: he convinced a judge to reduce his sentence and became a free man. Today Chris is a successful social entrepreneur who employs returning citizens; a mentor; and a public speaker. He is the embodiment of second chances, and this is his unforgettable story.

Making Projects Sing
This book explores project management (PM) from a musical perspective. Music is a significant example of a nontraditional arena where PM is vital, yet it is only beginning to be seen as a vital tool. Therefore, this book will give an in depth and preeminent look at the PM processes and knowledge areas that are of utmost importance in many fields that PM is not used for currently. Seeking to understand projects in musical ways, synergies between music and the wider project management profession are many and varied. Written and developed by international experts in the project management and music professions, this book represents a unique and insightful approach to the study of the subject. The authors take a fresh look at practical models of musical thinking capable of application at every scale of project management, and in every possible project management environment. If you want to make your projects more musical, or simply have an interest exploring project management in music, this is the book for you!

Happy Grey Hair

release date: Dec 30, 2013
Happy Grey Hair
Udo, the village elder, has been raising his grandsons, Eze and Chike, since their father’s early death. When the boys got their hands on their father’s inheritance, they squandered it, and grew pompous and disrespectful of everyone, especially Udo. As Udo is aging, he is devastated by his grandsons’ lack of respect and caring for anyone. He cannot understand it; his son, their father, was such a good, hardworking man. His hired help, Ngozi, also bears the brunt of the boys’ insults. All she wants to do is help care for Udo, and they belittle her at every turn. Udo visits his best friend, Uzo, and devises a plan to make his grandsons understand the error of their ways. When Udo puts his plan into play, Eze and Chike respond with deceptions of their own. Soon, Udo realizes that he must take extreme measures to save Eze and Chike from their own greed and arrogance. What he does next will certainly change the rest of their lives... but will it work? *** Retaining long-held traditions in a rapidly developing region like West Africa has become a problem among youth. Naturally they want progress; but at what cost? After travel and research in six countries across West Africa, the author has developed this play to address the issue from an African perspective. Incorporating West African traditions and sensibilities into a touching play, Happy Grey Hair carries a message for the youth of the region: remember the tradition of respecting elders. After all, you may be the village elder one day yourself.

A Community-Based Approach to the Reduction of Sexual Reoffending

release date: Aug 15, 2011
A Community-Based Approach to the Reduction of Sexual Reoffending
A Circle of Support and Accountability is a group of trained volunteers who meet on a regular basis with a high risk sex offender living in their community. This innovative strategy, which helps the offender both to maintain accountability and reintegrate into the community, is proven to be effective in combating child sexual abuse. This book explains this pioneering approach to managing the behaviour of sex offenders in the community. It provides an overview of sexual abuse, sex offenders and their management, and the Circles approach. The authors set out the development of Circles since they were first started in Canada, the principles of Circles and how they work in practice, and evidence and evaluation of their effectiveness. The use of Circles is brought to life by testimonies from four sex offenders and four volunteers who tell, often movingly, why they joined a Circle, their experiences, and the effects upon them. This unique book, on a ground-breaking approach to managing sex offenders, will be of great interest to professionals across social care and the criminal justice system, including prison and probation services, the police, social workers, counsellors and all those working with sex offenders, including volunteers.

Ethno-Religious Violence in Indonesia

release date: Mar 31, 2008
Ethno-Religious Violence in Indonesia
Ethno-religious violence in Indonesia illustrates in detail how and why previously peaceful religious communities can descend into violent conflict. From 1999 until 2000, the conflict in North Maluku, Indonesia, saw the most intense communal violence of Indonesia’s period of democratization. For almost a year, militias waged a brutal religious war which claimed the lives of almost four thousand lives. The conflict culminated in ethnic cleansing along lines of religious identity, with approximately three hundred thousand people fleeing their homes. Based on detailed research, this book provides an in depth picture of all aspects of this devastating and brutal conflict. It also provides numerous examples of how different conflict theories can be applied in the analysis of real situations of tensions and violence, illustrating the mutually reinforcing nature of mass level sentiment and elite agency, and the rational and emotive influences on those involved. This book will be of interest to researchers in Asian Studies, conflict resolution and religious violence.
