Stress in policing remains a serious concern for individual officers, their families, their organizations and society at large. As an editor of the Psychological and Behavioural Aspects of Risk series, Ronald J. Burke brings together the latest research findings and intervention strategies, shown to be effective, by an international group of experts. The contributors comprise of a group of high profile researchers and writers who are experts in their respective fields. This edited collection addresses such issues as: The increased risk of international terrorism Racial profiling Police Culture Police integrity Police suicide Inadequate police training The work of police officers exposes them to sources of stress that increase several risks in terms of their psychological and physical health, their family relationships, physical injuries, emotional trauma, ambiguity about their roles in society. Shift work, and undercover work add additional burdens to officers and their families. Police work also places risks on the communities in which officers serve in terms of officers being inadequately trained to deal with mentally ill citizens.

Often dubbed the "crystals bible," this comprehensive reference guide to the spiritual and healing qualities of 455 sacred stones has become the go-to book for looking up the properties of gems and minerals. Each entry includes vivid color photographs for each stone to aid identification and to showcase its beauty, as well as listing its scientific information, its element and chakra correspondences, and the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of each stone. Illustrated by gorgeously lit, clear color photos to aid quick identification, the book offers an illuminating alphabetical journey through the mineral kingdom, stone by stone. This new edition of The Book of Stones, the best-selling guide to some of Earth's most beautiful natural objects, is revised to include 76 new entries. The book begins with two introductory chapters detailing advice by authors Naisha Ahsian and Robert Simmons on how to work with crystals and stones--including the concept of crystal resonance and the scientific observation that living organisms (such as ourselves) are liquid crystalline structures. Each entry begins with the stone name and photo, plus its elemental and chakra correspondences, as well as keywords that indicate its properties. Next comes a description of the crystal structure, hardness, history, and known locations of each mineral, plus any relevant legend or lore from the past. Each author then offers their own take and personal insights on the subtle energy properties and spiritual applications of the stone. The entries conclude with summaries of the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing qualities of the stone, and an affirmation for evoking its potential benefits. The book's presentation is straightforward enough to make it an excellent introduction for beginners, yet the level of detail and the depth of research make it an invaluable resource for the most experienced stone practitioners.

"In considering the whole of Crane's writing, Monteiro interrelates the various texts and vividly presents their cultural contexts, structuring his study around the primary natural and social settings that uniquely characterize Crane - the city, warfare, the frontier, and shipwreck at sea. By taking an unprecedented inventory of those religious readings, songs, and recitations the young Crane imbibed and tracing their permeation of his writerly imagination, Monteiro deepens our understanding of the meaning and purpose of Crane's work and fosters new appreciation for his immense but short-lived creative faculty."--Jacket.

Spanning a four-day hostage situation in the not-too-distant future, The Blue Light Project looks on as a city unravels and three lives intersect in unlikely ways. When an armed man seizes a television studio in the center of town, Thom Pegg, a former investigative journalist turned tabloid reporter, is as surprised as anyone to learn that he is the only person to whom the hostage taker will speak, bringing him inside the studio and in contact with the frightening truth. From outside, meanwhile, the drama of the enthralled and horrified city is revealed through the eyes of two very different people thrown together by the crisis. Eve is an Olympic gold medalist and local hero. Rabbit is a renegade street artist who has just completed a massive and mysterious installation on the tops of hundreds of buildings throughout the city. As events churn to chaos, Taylor paints a powerful picture of the sinister side of our interconnected world, taking us on a dizzying journey through black sites, 24/7 media cycles, cults of celebrity, gang stalking, underground art, societal paranoia, and dangerous cynicism. The result is a gripping work of dark brilliance, from which Taylor ultimately surprises us with grounds for hope.

With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly, University of Reading. Also included are two short stories: The Veteran * The Open Book The Red Badge of Courage is one of the greatest war novels of all time. It reports on the American Civil War through the eyes of Henry Fleming, an ordinary farm boy turned soldier. It evokes the chaos and the dull clatter of war: the acrid smoke, the incessant rumours of coming battles, the filth and cold, the numbing monotony, the unworldly wailing of the dying. Like an impressionist painter, Crane also captures the strange beauty of war: the brilliant red flags against a blue sky, steel bayonets flashing in the morning sun as soldiers step off into battle. In the midst of this chaotic outer world, he creates an intricate inner world as he takes us inside the head of Henry Fleming. Stephen Crane is now recognised as one of a handful of daring innovators who helped shape modern American fiction.

Vous avez aimé Mulholland Drive, de David Lynch, Lunar Park, de Bret Easton Ellis ? Vous allez adorer Blue Jay Way, le premier thriller de Fabrice Colin. Julien, jeune Franco-Américain féru de littérature contemporaine, a perdu son père le 11 septembre 2001 dans l'avion qui s'est écrasé sur le Pentagone. Désireuse de lui faire oublier ce drame, la célèbre romancière Carolyn Gerritsen, qui l'a pris en amitié, lui propose d'aller vivre à Los Angeles chez son ex-mari producteur, afin qu'il officie en tant que précepteur auprès de leur fils Ryan. À Blue Jay Way, villa somptueuse dominant la ville, Julien est confronté aux frasques du maître des lieux, Larry Gordon, et à une jeunesse dorée hollywoodienne qui a fait de son désœuvrement un art de vivre : un monde où tous les désirs sont assouvis, où l'alcool, les drogues et les parties déjantées constituent de solides remparts contre l'ennui. Peu à peu, Julien se laisse séduire par ce mode de vie délétère et finit par nouer une relation amoureuse avec Ashley, la jeune épouse de Larry (et belle-mère de Ryan). Lorsque la jeune femme disparaît mystérieusement, il doit tout faire pour dissimuler leur liaison sous peine de devenir le principal suspect. Ce n'est que le début d'un terrible cauchemar : très vite, les morts violentes se succèdent, mensonges, trahisons et manipulations deviennent la norme, et la paranoïa apparaît comme le dernier refuge contre un réel insupportable. Julien doit savoir, pourtant, il n'a plus le choix : il fait partie de l'histoire. Styliste hors pair, Fabrice Colin donne ici de nouveaux territoires au thriller et nous offre un roman profondément contemporain, qui dresse le portrait d'une époque où réalité et fiction ont irrémédiablement partie liée, parfois pour le meilleur, souvent pour le pire. Los Angeles, la ville où tout est filmé et où, pourtant, tout est faux, est le cadre idéal de cette palpitante descente aux enfers, doublée d'une intrigue machiavélique. Quatre fois lauréat du grand prix de l'Imaginaire, Fabrice Colin s'est illustré dans de nombreux domaines des littératures de genre, écrivant pour la jeunesse (Projet oXatan, La Malédiction d'Old Haven, Bal de givre à New York, etc.) aussi bien que pour les adultes (Dreamericana, Or Not To Be, Big Fan, etc.). Il est également scénariste de BD et auteur de pièces radiophoniques.

As issues of history and memory collide in our society and in the classroom, the time is ripe to rethink the place of history in our schools. Knowing, Teaching, and Learning History represents a unique effort by an international group of scholars to understand the future of teaching and learning about the past. It will challenge the ways in which historians, teachers, and students think about teaching history. The book concerns itself first and foremost with the question, "How do students develop sophisticated historical understandings and how can teachers best encourage this process?" Recent developments in psychology, education, and historiography inform the debates that take place within Knowing, Teaching, and Learning History. This four-part volume identifies the current issues and problems in history education, then works towards a deep and considered understanding of this evolving field. The contributors to this volume link theory to practice, making crucial connections with those who teach history. Published in conjunction with the American Historical Association.
