Children Forsaken

release date: Jul 12, 2021
Children Forsaken
A shocking reminder of the cruel history of childhood that has been largely hidden and forgotten. Children Forsaken provides a long, historical, overarching examination of the phenomenon of child abuse. In the UK battered child syndrome was ''discovered'' in the 1960s, whilst child sexual abuse gained attention in the early 1980s. Subsequent enquiries, legislation and practice developments have focused narrowly on reacting to events giving the impression that child abuse is a recent problem. Yet the historical record provides a multitude of examples of the ritual slaughter, sexual and physical abuse of children continuing since Ancient times. This book place child abuse in the context of the way children and childhood have been understood throughout the ages, but also show that despite legal definitions, and children''s rights laws, children and young people continue to suffer. This book enables practitioners and those training in the helping professions to gain a deeper understanding of how embedded in human society child abuse has been and still is. Practitioners need to perceive child abuse as a long-standing problem about children''s status in the World, their legal and human rights, and that much work is still needed to ensure children''s needs and safety are paramount. "This ambitious book paints an important and erudite picture of child abuse and social responses to it, bringing us up-to-date with a call for continued vigilance, compassion, and action." Professor Jonathan Parker, Bournemouth University

This book gives them a jargon-free, accessible guide to help them assess situations, provide skills and guidance to support children and young people, and know how and where to get more help for them. Full of practical tips, advice, exercises and case studies. Articulates gender, multi-cultural, spirituality and sexuality issues. Tackles contemporary issues such as cyber bullying, eating disorders and self-harm. Uses research and established theory in an engaging way enabling the reader to translate ideas into modern multi-cultural practice.

Parents and young people will also find much of value here. "This book makes a rich contribution to the understanding and treatment of children’s mental health at a time when this is desperately needed. It is well-informed, full of case illustrations to guide the reader, and is written by a compassionate therapist and researcher with a solid grasp of the complex social environment in which children live today." Dr Chris Nicholson – Head of the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex

You might say that persuasion and negotiation are two of the fundamental elements in all of our interactions, whether they''re personal or professional.

Fidel Castro

release date: Jul 13, 2020
Fidel Castro
Fidel Castro is one of the legendary revolutionary figures of the 20th Century. This book adds to the large numbers of books writen about him, by filling in gaps and adding another dimension to those who seek to further understand the boy who became such a controversial and enigmatic figure in his tumultuous manhood. Castro has often been eclipsed by the romantic figure of Che Guevara in stories about the Cuban revolution and the guerilla war. Yet Fidel Castro''s personal story of hardship, complex family dynamics, strict Jesuit schooling and psychological issues, provides compelling evidence with which to fully comprehend his motives to lead the fight for the liberation of Cuba.

Illuminating Humor of the Bible

Illuminating Humor of the Bible
Humor smiles and chuckles and sometimes laughs so loud in virtually every book of the Bible, so it''s remarkable how readers manage to overlook it. It''s also unfortunate.

Illuminating Humor of the Bible shows how--and how much--comic elements contribute to understanding the most vital book in our culture. Biblical humor has been seriously underestimated. We have not begun to appreciate why humor winks with such unexpected frequency and understated significance from this revered text. It''s time to shine a spotlight on scriptural wit to illuminate the ways humor refracts biblical meaning. Unveiled by the frank perspective of humor, Bible texts reveal implications that will surprise the most informed readers. The reader-response lamp of humor lights up dark corners of biblical significance inaccessible until now. Awareness of the irony and wit and satire and slapstick enables not just better readings, but better ways to read. Go where no Bible reader has gone before. Try eight fresh and relevant methods of reading the Bible better through the lens of its humor.

Fidel Castro's Childhood

release date: May 17, 2012
Fidel Castro's Childhood
Fidel Castro is something of an enigma. For 50 years he has defied all America’s attempts to topple him and Cuba’s government. He continues to occupy a special place in Cuba’s collective consciousness and over his unique version of a socialist society in Latin America – but what shaped him into the person he is today? The saying goes ‘to understand the man, you must first understand the child’, and no other book has concentrated exclusively on Fidel Castro’s childhood and on his formative experiences. Fidel Castro’s Childhood – The Untold Story examines those crucial early years that, together with external circumstances and family relationships, made Castro the man he is. Steven Walker has used all the available evidence, including the testimony of close friends, to assemble the facts to analyse, interpret and draw conclusions using his extensive knowledge of politics, psychotherapy and child development. Fidel Castro’s Childhood – The Untold Story offers an opportunity to gain new insight into the life of Castro. Love or loathe him, you cannot ignore him. Castro is one of the iconic political figures of the 20th century and a towering character in the pantheon of revolutionary leaders, Fidel Castro’s Childhood – The Untold Story throws light into the dark corners and shadowy recesses of the early life of this exceptional, enigmatic character. Che Guevara might receive more international attention in the story of Cuba’s history, but it is Castro who has remained enticingly enigmatic – until now.

Blood Trail

release date: Mar 01, 2012
Blood Trail
“Every page crackles with authenticity and truth. This is the kind of true crime that grabs you by the throat and never lets go.” —Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author In this classic true crime book, veteran journalist Steven Walker and decorated police detective Rick Reed delve into the disturbed mind of a sadistic serial killer. The murderous crimes of serial killer Joseph W. Brown first came to light in October 29, 1997, when Andrea "Slick" Hendrix''s beaten and strangled naked body was discovered in a roadside ditch near Stewartsville, Indiana. With no leads for police to follow, the case went cold, but it wouldn''t stay that way. In 1999 Brown, an ex-con with a brutal history, met Ginger Gasaway, 53, at a Gambler''s Anonymous meeting. She didn''t know that when she took up with him, she was gambling with her life. On August 30, 2000, Brown murdered and dismembered Gasaway and scattered her remains across three Indiana counties. Detective Rick Reed of the Evansville Police Department was on the scene when Brown led investigators to his ex-lover’s body parts. Reed was again present when Brown later confessed that during the past five years, he had indulged in a seven-state rampage of torture and murder, including Andrea Hendrix among more than a dozen victims. For Gasaway’s grisly death, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole. But being behind bars did not end his murder spree. On June 19, 2011 Brown strangled his cellmate, Charles Miller, to death, then called to the desk sergeant to come and get the body. Blood Trail tells the twisting, fascinating true story of a monster who killed at whim—and the dedicated law enforcement professionals who brought him to justice. Includes 16 pages of photos
