Stolen Innocence EBURY PRESS

To lose one child is terrible; to lose two is unimaginable. For no one to believe that you are innocent of their deaths and to be imprisoned because of it must be unbearable. Yet this is the reality Sally Clark had to face. The daughter of a policeman, wife of a solicitor and a solicitor herself, just when she was grieving from the tragic death of her second child the system she'd always believed in turned against her. Justice suddenly seemed a far-off principle as she was convicted and her initial appeal quashed. Her family, lawyers and various volunteers were relentless in their fight to clear her name. Finally, following three long years in prison, suffering abuse and the bleak horrow of bereavement, Sally Clark was finally acquitted by the Court of Appeal in 2003. Her release caught the nation's attention, and paved the way for succesful appeals by wrongly convicted mothers such as Angela Canning. Written with the power of a thriller, the book is a tragic but ultimately uplifting story of a mother's love and a family's gutsy fight for what they knew to be right.

Beyond the Century of the Child Cultural History and Developmental Psychology Edited by Willem Koops and Michael Zuckerman "This volume offers readers a brilliant and thought-provoking symposium on historical aspects of childhood, of conceptions and arrangements of childhood, and of the study of child development itself."--American Journal of Psychology In 1900, Ellen Key wrote the international bestseller The Century of the Child. In this enormously influential book, she proposed that the world's children should be the central work of society during the twentieth century. Although she never thought that her "century of the child" would become a reality, in fact it had much more resonance than she could have imagined. The idea of the child as a product of a protective and coddling society has given rise to major theories and arguments since Key's time. For the past half century, the study of the child has been dominated by two towering figures, the psychologist Jean Piaget and the historian Philippe Aries. Interest in the subject has been driven in large measure by Aries's argument that adults failed even to have a concept of childhood before the thirteenth century, and that from the thirteenth century to the seventeenth there was an increasing "childishness" in the representations of children and an increasing separation between the adult world and that of the child. Piaget proposed that children's logic and modes of thinking are entirely different from those of adults. In the twentieth century this distance between the spheres of children and adults made possible the distinctive study of child development and also specific legislation to protect children from exploitation, abuse, and neglect. Recent students of childhood have challenged the ideas those titans promoted; they ask whether the distancing process has gone too far and has begun to reverse itself. In a series of essays, Beyond the Century of the Child considers the history of childhood from the Middle Ages to modern times, from America and Europe to China and Japan, bringing together leading psychologists and historians to question whether we unnecessarily infantilized children and unwittingly created a detrimental wall between the worlds of children and adults. Together these scholars address the question whether, a hundred years after Ellen Key wrote her international sensation, the century of the child has in fact come to an end. Willem Koops is Professor of Developmental Psychology and Dean of the Department of Social Sciences at Utrecht University. Michael Zuckerman is Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Almost Chosen People: Oblique Biographies in the American Grain. 2003 | 304 pages | 6 x 9 ISBN 978-0-8122-3704-7 | Cloth | $59.95s | GBP39.00 World Rights | History, Psychology Short copy: "This volume offers readers a brilliant and thought-provoking symposium on historical aspects of childhood, of conceptions and arrangements of childhood, and of the study of child development itself."--American Journal of Psychology

Beyond the boundaries of our own Mortal World lies the Unseen Realm; a supernatural domain inhabited by entities that prey on humans. Mankind knows them as demons, and when the barrier between the two worlds is weakened, only chaos and destruction can ensue. Continuing from Kim's previous book The Demon's Call, Aidan and Gwyn have formed an uneasy alliance with modern-day wizard Eldritch. The stakes are raised when it becomes apparent that someone else is working to bring about the demon's manifestation, and that they are prepared to kill in order to succeed. When one of the trio is critically injured, the other two must face a terrible choice if they are to defeat the demon. Child of the Covenant is the second installment of the 'Dark Places' sequence, a series that taps into the deep core of folklore and legends that exist at the heart of the British and Celtic psyche. Inspired by authors such as Barbara Hambly and Nora Roberts, due to their strong female protagonists, this book will appeal to those who enjoy stories about fantasy worlds and paranormal activity, as well as to fans of The Demon's Call (Matador, 2014).

'The book is an excellent read as it provides both ideas and suggestions to empower leaders in the education system. Increasingly, more and more academics write for each other and not for the practitioners who lead our schools, so this is a refreshing book. In an era of some anti-leadership books it is refreshing to read ideas that build bridges to practitioners in order to improve schools. The book is an outstanding contribution to the resource base for leaders in schools and the wider education system' - Professor Brent Davies, International Journal of Education Management 'Michael Fullan's books - and this is no exception - are for educational policy makers, practitioners and researchers what J K Rowling's Harry Potter books are for children and parents. This is one of the best and most useful' - Tim Brighouse 'Michael Fullan has produced another powerful and inspirational book. He has the wonderful knack of continually positioning himself a couple of steps ahead of the fields.By so doing, he is able to challenge and lead thinking and thereby accelerate productive new developments' - David Hopkins, Royal Holloway University of London 'An ambitious and provocative journey into the complexities and possibilities that arise when leadership and sustainability join' - Roland S Barth, Lessons Learned (Corwin Press 2003) 'No one has contributed more to our understanding of leadership and change than Michael Fullan. Leadership & Sustainability continues that tradition - a brilliant analysis of a timely topic' - Thomas J Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor of Education, Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas 'Efforts at education reform have taken us down a variety of paths, and Michael Fullan has consistently noted the importance of leadership to large-scale reform. In his latest book, Leadership & Sustainability, Fullan makes a solid case that such reform is a complex process involving many variables. Key among these variables is the relationship between leadership and sustainability' - Vincent L Ferrandino, Executive Director, National Association of Elementary School Principals.Alexandria, Vancouver 'With knowledgeable savvy from both individual leadership and system transformation, and a knack for writing in "plain-speak," Michael Fullan helps us understand that it will be "leadership" (not leaders) that pave the way for great sustainability. His attempt to link abstract concepts to concrete examples of what it looks like in practice was successful' - Theodore B Creighton, Director, Center for Research and Doctoral Studies, Sam Houston State University, Executive Director, National Council of Professors of Education Administration 'Michael Fullan has gone beyond his past research that described the change process so insightfully to a new and exciting exploration of how systems thinking and the "long lever of leadership" can bring about deep and lasting reforms in schools and schooling. This brand of leadership for sustainability, as described by Fullan, results in the "deep learning" that enables schools to respond successfully to the revolution in expectations they now face.This new work will both inform and inspire educators to become the "new theoreticians" whose impact will be felt in their schools every day' - David T Conley, Associate Professor, Educational Leadership and Policy, Director, Center for Educational Policy Research, College of Education, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 'Leadership & Sustainability is a critical breakthrough. Michael Fullan has utilized findings from some of the best research and observations in education over the past fifteen years to brilliantly illuminate the challenges of creating schools capable of continuous organic change and improvement' - James P Comer, Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry, Yale Child Study Center, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut Leadership & Sustainability will examine how the opportunity for new leadership can be leveraged to focus on sustainability of reform, and will identify barriers and strategies for moving in new directions. This book will define the meaning of "sustainability" and the large scale it plays in reform. It explains the myriad facets of continuous improvement and the key characteristics of the dynamics in sustainability.This book explores the two-way street relationship between individual leadership and system transformation.

Adoption Handbook Aspekt,The Netherlands

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Each adoption is a unique event for the people who are personally involved, or for those who feel connected to the parents-to-be. The adoption period takes you to a new world and can wear you down emotionally if you are not prepared for what can be expected. It is not the regular pregnancy with which some people like to compare it. It is a pregnancy between cold bureaucracy on one side and the daily feelings of vulnerable tenderness on the other. Many books have been written about the ins and outs of pregnancies. But there was never a book to prepare oneself for that very special time we call adoption. Geeri Bakker takes you there with her positive attitude and her sense of humour. She takes you along the unpredictable, uncomfortable and sometimes seemingly endless path that is the adoption procedure. The Adoption Handbook teaches adoptive parents-to-be how to face stress in its many appearances during the sometimes dark and winding road that leads to their adoptive child. To illustrate the book, Geeri Bakker shares her own story of the procedures that she and her husband endured when adopting their two children. It is not the (Dutch) procedure that makes this story so touching and at times breathtaking. It is the way that stress burrows into hearts that desperately wish to adopt a child; something that anyone going through an adoption procedure will recognize. The Adoption Handbook helps adoptive parents acknowledge their feelings of stress during their long-term 'pregnancy' and deal with them: facing the main goal, and feeling energetically able, both physically and mentally, to 'conceive' their child when the time is right. It is only normal that pregnant couples gather information to prepare themselves. So now it is time that adoptive parents prepare themselves, as well. For the well-being of this special child, given to you to have, hold, love, cherish, and to let it grow and grow up in your family.

Memory is Our Home ibidem

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Memory is Our Home is based on Roma s Talasiewicz-Eibuszyc diary, her writings about Warsaw Poland during the years following the First World War and the six long years of World War WII, and how she and refuges like her were able to survive throughout the vast territories of Soviet Russia and Uzbekistan. Interwoven with her journals are stories she told to me throughout my life, as well as my own recollections as my family made a new life in the shadows of the Holocaust in Communist Poland after the war and into the late 1960s.§The book is a rich, living document, a riveting account of a vibrant young woman`s courage and endurance. A forty-year recollection, of love and loss, of hopes and dreams for a better world, narrated in a compelling, unique voice, through two generations, that conveys the historical background and a personal story in an accessible format for modern readers. Roma`s richly-textured descriptions of the physical and emotional lives of Jews in Warsaw after the First War and candor about surviving World War II throughout Russia, and her daughter`s own story about a childhood after the war in Communist Poland in the shadows of the Holocaust aftermath make this book a deeply moving and a universal story.§With this book the author pays tribute to the chapter in history that is now almost forgotten. This very personal story is told on the background of twentieth-century European history so that this book can be used as an educational tool, especially at the high school level. Leading scholars in US, Europe and Israel, have responded with praise, noting its historical value, its ability to inspire and teach readers young and old, and the important contribution it will make to current and future generations.§The book encourages people to learn about their ancestors` history and traumas. Science as well as experience shows us again and again that we carry in our genes not only our parents` blue eyes or the color of skin, but their memories as well. Trauma affects the nervous system of the mother, and this change is passed down to the next generation. Memoir like this tells the story of so many people so that reading it can help heal the generations who carry this unbelievable tragedy in their lives.§It is said that in every survivor`s family, one child is unconsciously chosen to be a memorial candle, to carry on the mourning and to dedicate his or her life to the memory of the Shoah. That child takes part in the parents` emotional world, assumes the burden, and becomes the link between past and future. Transmitting the memory of the vibrant culture before the Holocaust is just as important just as the memory of the Holocaust, to combat ignorance and prejudice and sharing of cultures and knowledge of history. Memory is Our Home; the story of the vibrant Jewish culture that flourished in Poland, the account of its demise, connecting it to the present, makes the book the memorial candle.

Thin Wire: A Mother's Journey Through her Daughter's Heroin Addiction is an honest and intimate account of heroin addiction told by both mother and daughter. Amber is introduced to drugs and becomes addicted without her mother's knowledge. She meets a dealer who feeds her habit. Whilst living together, they are raided by the police. Bailed to her mother's address with a GBP200-a-day addiction, Amber doesn't think her family will accept her back when they discover the truth. When she's charged by the police with dealing class A drugs and accepting stolen goods, she fears she'll go to prison. Trying to feed her habit alone, Amber meets a fellow addict who offers to introduce her to prostitution. The prospect terrifies her, but will her mother help her? An unflinching story that looks at drug addiction from two different sides, Thin Wire will appeal to a diverse range of readers, in particular fans of autobiographies and memoirs, and is remiscent of Melvin Burgess' Junk. The book's concluding section offers two sets of personal guidelines; one for addicts, the other for parents or partners of addicts, while the in-depth, harrowing real life story vividly illustrates the difficulties of overcoming addiction. In a society where 50% of teenagers experiment with drugs, Amber is every mother's child. She could be yours.

Language Mixing in Infant Bilingualism Clarendon Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book addresses the issue of language contact in the context of child language acquisition. Lanza examines in detail the simultaneous acquisition of Norwegian and English by two first-born children in families living in Norway in which the mother is American and the father Norwegian. She connects psycholinguistic arguments with sociolinguistic evidence, adding a much-needed dimension of real language use in context to the psycholinguistic studies which have dominated the field. She draws upon evidence from other studies to support her claims concerning language dominance and the child's differentiation between the two languages in relation to the situation, interlocutor, and the communicative demands of the context. She also addresses the question of whether or not the language mixing of infant bilingualism is conceptually different from the codeswitching of older bilinguals, thus helping to bridge the gap between these two fields of study.
