For most of us, violence is something observed from the safety of our living spaces where we watch televised terrorist attacks and ongoing global conflict. We engage with the horror of mass shootings, and try to make sense of what appears to be senseless violence toward innocent victims. Domestic murders and assaults now seem commonplace items in our newspapers. But many human service workers and social workers confront violence-related issues every day in situations arising across every stratum of our society.
This book takes a multi-disciplinary perspective towards understanding and developing effective responses to violence, its prevention and management. It encompasses a variety of fields of practice and offers sound analysis of theories that underpin these fields along with their pracice implications.
Understanding Violence: Context and Practice in the Human Services is a reference for professionals, an essential resource for students and will be of interest to the wider community in explaining community responses to violence. The editors have recruited a wide range of experts who collectively offer valuable insights into different aspects of violence. There is something in the book for researchers, practitioners amd policy analysts and it should provide readers with a comprehensive overview of both New Zealand and international cutting-edge strategies for dealing with violence in its various forms.

The sequel to the best-selling The Lightning Boys, Lightning Boys 2 is a must-have companion and continues the tales from pilots and other crew connected with this iconic aircraft, giving a rare insight into postwar fighter operations. In 20 separate stories to intrigue, amaze and amuse, the book has also been complied and written by Richard Pike.
The reader is taken to situations intercepting 60 plus enemy aircraft, a desperate struggle in a cockpit flooded by tropical downpours, the difficulties of being affected by sudden toothache at high altitude, and the curious encounter with an unidentified flying object. Yet another chapter paints a dramatic reconstruction of a scene in Germany when a Lightning, having entered an inadvertent, out-of-control spin, began an earthwards plunge towards a town centre.

A tribute to New York and New Yorkers from the acclaimed Magnum photographer
A perceptive and striking study of the many aspects of this eclectic city

The bustling gateway to America, New York has always been a city of dramatic excitement—big dreams and constant changes. A legendary photojournalist and former president of Magnum Photos, Thomas Hoepker vividly captures the city’s complex spirit in all its many moods while documenting the most recent fifty-plus years of the city’s history. A long-time resident, Hoepker’s images range from the early 60s through 9/11, and up to the very present including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

With journalistic zeal and a keen eye for crucial details, he documents a true New York with its diverse inhabitants and the allure of its prominent landmarks and hidden, far-flung corners. His insightful photography conveys a vivid sense of the city’s physical landscape and intricate urban culture.

Welcome to the world of Steampunk: a unique fantasy version of nineteenth century Victorian England imbued with today's technology, resulting in devices and contraptions that seem to have sprung from the mind of a mad twenty-first century scientist. The “steam” refers to steam power-as in fire-breathing machines of antique locomotion. The “punk” is an important reference to an outsider attitude. In The Art of Steampunk, Second Edition you'll discover the captivating and dynamic world of this emerging genre through the creative vision of today's leading Steampunk artists. No longer satisfied with the plastic design of today's mass-produced products, these artists are crafting a romantic new standard for modern goods by applying the characteristics of Steampunk. Their artwork consists of everything from jewelry and watches to light fixtures and clocks, every piece demonstrating hours of painstaking work and unlimited devotion. The Art of Steampunk chronicled the works featured at the first-ever museum exhibition of Steampunk art, held at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University. Now this expanded second edition features the work of additional world-class Steampunk artists, as well as new Steampunk lighting creations from author Art Donovan. With more than fifty new photos, The Art of Steampunk, Second Edition, remains the single most important book on the subject of Steampunk.

New Edition In Full Colour!

In the years since the book first appeared raw foods have never been more popular as people discover their tremendous healing and health-giving benefits. However raw foodism is more than just the latest dietary fad; historically many cultures and religions have placed value on the eating of living' foods, and proponents have been helping others overcome life-threatening diseases since the early 20th century.
Many who are new to the diet may imagine that eating only uncooked foods would be restrictive and boring, but this is far from the case. There is a wealth of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts to discover and use, and with the help of equipments such as a juicer and dehydrator, a whole host of ways to prepare them.
This book includes almost 150 recipes, some of which allow the occasional non-raw ingredient to reflect the author's non-proscriptive attitude to a raw food life-style, in order to encourage those who may not want to go the whole way but are interested in incorporating something new into their existing diet. This book is ideal not only for those who want to adhere to a raw food diet but also for those who may simply wish to embark on a week or two of detoxifying.

When her sons inherited their father's childhood home in a Cornish fishing village, once a commercial building for storing and paking pilchards, Lindsey Bareham thought it would be a nice idea to record some of the recipes and memories of this extraordinary place. It started as a notebook for her sons' eyes only, with lists of favourite ways of cooking mackerel, monkfish and sole and how to make amyonnaise to go with the gift of a handsome crab or crayfish, but then it took on its own momentum and became this very special book, full of recollections and anecdotes and fabulous holiday food.
Although the setting is of course English, Bareham's recipes take in influences from all over the world, including Portugal, Italy and Turkey. Nor, despite the location, are her recipes completely devited to matters piscine. Chapters on eggs, chicken, lamb, vegetables and, of course, puddings, sit alongside a wonderful collection of recipes for fish of all kinds.

Now in Paperback.

First published in 1970 and re-issued by Grub Street for the first time in 1996, the new edition hit the bestseller lists and went on to sell over 20,000 copies and its reappearance was praised by contemporary cookery stars like Nigel Slater, Delia Smith and Simon Hopkinson. Also in that year Magaret Costa was honoured at the prestigious Glenfiddich Awards.
Margaret Costa's book was named as recently as 2010 as one of the Top 50 Cookbooks of All Time by Observer Food Monthly. The book has stood the test of time and indeed many of those writers who praise her also admit that they have taken their inspiration from her wonderful writing. The book is organised according to the seasons, and within each one there are also themed chapters such as Olives, Comforting Breakfasts or Proper Puddings. This is a modern classic which no cookery collection should be without.

Losing weight has become the modern woman’s holy grail… everything will be better when we’re thin.

We’re obsessed with weight, we dislike our bodies, we worry about the food we eat, we feel guilty, we diet… Too many of us are locked into a war with our own bodies which we’ll never win, and which will never make us happy.

The Ministry of Thin takes a controversial, unflinching look at how the modern obsession with weight loss, youth, beauty and perfection got out of control. Emma Woolf, author of An Apple a Day, explores how we might all be able to stop hating and start liking our own bodies again. And she dares to ask: if losing weight is the answer, what is the question?
