Among the developed countries it is not the richest societies which have the best health, but those which have the smallest income differences between rich and poor. Inequality and relative poverty have absolute effects: they increase death rates. But why? How can smaller income differences raise average life expectancy? Using examples from the USA, Britain, Japan and Eastern Europe, and bringing together evidence from the social and medical sciences, Unhealthy Socities provides the explanation. Healthy, egalitarian societies are more socially cohesive. They have a stronger community life and suffer fewer of the corrosive effects of inequality. As well as inequality weakening the social fabric, damaging health and increasing crime rates, Unhealthy Societies shows that social cohesion is crucial to the quality of life. The contrast between the material success and social failure of modern societies marks an imbalance which needs attention. The relationship between health and equality suggests that important social needs will go unmet without a larger measure of social and distributive justice. This path-breaking book is essential reading for health psychologists, sociologists, welfare economists, social policy analysts and all those concerned with the future of developed societies.

The Oxford Handbook Of Externalizing Spectrum Disorders

Recent developments in the conceptualization of externalizing spectrum disorders, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and substance use disorders, suggest common genetic and neural substrates. Despite this, neither shared vulnerabilities nor their implications for developmental models of externalizing conduct are captured by prevailing nosologic and diagnostic systems, such as the DSM-5. The Oxford Handbook of Externalizing Spectrum Disorders is the first book of its kind to capture the developmental psychopathology of externalizing spectrum disorders by examining causal factors across levels of analysis and developmental epochs, while departing from the categorical perspective. World renowned experts on externalizing psychopathology demonstrate how shared genetic and neural vulnerabilities predispose to trait impulsivity, a highly heritable personality construct that is often shaped by adverse environments into increasingly intractable forms of externalizing conduct across development. Consistent with contemporary models of almost all forms of psychopathology, the Handbook emphasizes the importance of neurobiological vulnerability and environmental risk interactions in the expression of externalizing behavior across the lifespan. The volume concludes with an integrative, ontogenic process model of externalizing psychopathology in which diverse equifinal and multifinal pathways to disorder are specified.

A Richard and Judy Book Club selection. The Crying Tree is a heartfelt family drama by Naseem Rakha. Irene Stanley thought her world had come to an end when her fifteen-year-old son, Shep, was murdered in a robbery at their Oregon home. Daniel Robbin, who had spent his teenage years in and out of trouble, gave himself up to the police and was imprisoned in the State Penitentiary. Now, eighteen years later, Robbin is placed on Death Row awaiting a date for his execution. Irene's husband, Nate, has demons from the past of his own which he needs to face, and Shep's sister, Bliss, quickly learns that she too has a part to play in the healing of her family shattered by the tragedy. Irene, having reached the brink of suicide, comes to the realization that to survive she needs to overcome her grief and her hate for Robbin, and that she must face the secrets that she suspects surround Shep's murder. She turns full circle, defying both her family and the church, and finds that she is not only capable of forgiveness for the man who murdered her son, but also she comes to terms with understanding much more about events that happened that fateful afternoon back in Carlton. And perhaps the most painful realization of all, how little they as a family understood Shep.

What Everyone In Britain Should Know About Crime And Punishment

This book stems from frustration: a frustration born of successive governments' insistence that 'prison works'; a frustration born of the knowledge of the realities of crime and punishment, and lastly, the kind of society we are becoming when we continue to police and incarcerate at the ratewe do. Since the publication of the first edition a real debate has begun about the 'war on drugs', and whilst we have continued to imprison at a rate higher than our European neighbours this book remains one of the few voices raised in opposition. Written with the support and direction of aneditorial committee of prison governors, criminologists, probation officers, ex-offenders and a prominent politician, this thought-provoking book gives you the inside story on crime and punishment in Britain. This second edition has been brought entirely up-to-date with a new chapter on the courtsand a discussion on the needs of victims. What Everyone in Britain Should Know About Crime and Punishment exposes our criminal justice system as a failure, lacking in justice and doing very little to tackle the causes of crime and catch offenders. Wilson and Ashton claim that despite the politicalrhetoric, the solutions to crime rarely lie with the police, courts, probation and prison services. Instead, they argue the solution is to be found through a greater emphasis on education, enhanced work opportunities and crime prevention, rather than the current obsession with how to punish anoffender. What Everyone in Britain Should Know About Crime and Punishment has been quoted extensively by journalists and political commentators and more importantly has engaged those members of the public who have a genuine interest in knowing the truth.

This book is the second volume in Manuel Scorza's five-part novelistic cycle entitled "La guerra silenciosa (The Silent War)." In his saga, Scorza describes an Andean peasant uprising that he witnessed in the 1960's. Although many of the names, places, dates, and events are real, the author fictionalizes his testimonial by adding humor, myth, and fantasy. Garabombo, the novel's titular protagonist, is modeled on Fermin Espinoza, an Indian whom Scorza knew personally. Although the fictionalized portrait adheres rather closely to its model, Scorza endows the novelistic Garabombo with the attribute of a symbolic invisibility."

"The literary explosion in Quebec produced some of the most original and entertaining fiction in Canada. Anansi presents a major anthology of the best stories by such well-known names as Michel Tremblay, Yves Thériault, Jacques Ferron, Gilles Vigneault, Roch Carrier, and many more. In his introduction Geoff Hancock, former editor of Canadian Fiction Magazine, looks at the forms and ideas that characterize modern Quebec fiction: the inner world of fantasy, utopia, and anti-utopia, the comic and the grotesque, the new political concern with feminism and individualism."
