With many readers coming to cockers for the first time, this book offers complete guidance for their very earliest care and training at home, and then introduces both cockers and their owners to a range of different activities and competitions. Drawing on more than a quarter of a century's experience with cockers, the author takes you on a wonderful journey from the moment your puppy arrives home to the day that you start enjoying sports and activities together. The Cocker Spaniel covers every aspect of cockers, from the history of the breed to healthcare and problem-solving guides. There is also valuable information on contacting the wider cocker community and on joining groups and clubs. Many cocker owners also want to work their dog as a gundog in country sports, including field trials and working tests. With The Cocker Spaniel, the transition from family dog at home to elite performance dog in the field is seamless and straightforward to achieve. There is invaluable technical instruction on how to work your cocker in the field, as the author has achieved successfully, with five Field Trial Champions to her name.

In Great Numbers will introduce children to the fascinating world of numbers and explains how they help us in our daily life. Imagine a world without numbers. How would we ask for three scoops of ice cream? Or know whether we've got 60 minutes left to play with our friends rather than 60 seconds? Why does a -minute have 60 seconds anyway and not 100? Where does zero come from and what language do computers understand? - Without the wonder-ful invention of numbers how would we be able to count, measure, and compare? Over the centuries, people have conceived more and more clever ways to use them to understand the world around us, build cities, find our way home, and more. In Great Numbers is a fun book that will help children realize how fascinating and fun numbers can be.

Rape Myths As Barriers To Fair Trial Process

‘Rape Myths as Barriers to Fair Trial Process’ opens the courtroom door on rape trials to investigate how and why they re-traumatise complainants. Despite decades of targeted law reform, adult complainants still report that the process of being a witness is a significant point of re-victimisation. This book contains the findings of four years of research that compares the trial process in 30 adult rape cases from 2010 to 2015 (in which the defence at trial was consent) with 10 cases from the Sexual Violence Court Pilot heard in 2018. The aim of the research was to find out at which points in the questioning process the complainant displayed heightened emotionality, including distress, and why cross-examination (in particular) is so resistant to reform measures. Researchers also considered the extent to which the current rules of evidence and procedure are applied appropriately and consistently, and identified examples of best practice in order to develop proposals for changes to law and process. Elisabeth McDonald is a Professor of Law at the University of Canterbury. She has taught and published in the areas of sexual and family violence, law and sexuality, criminal law and the law of evidence for 30 years, as an academic and as the Policy Manager for the evidence law reference at the New Zealand Law Commission. Elisabeth is the author of a number of evidence law textbooks and online legal resources, as well as co-editor of ‘From “Real Rape” to Real Justice’ (2011) and ‘Feminist Judgments Aotearoa: Te Rino, the Two-Stranded Rope’ (2017). In June 2018, she became a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for Services to Law and Education.
