For those parents who lose a child in criminal circumstances, it is tough to judge which is worse: is it harder to bear the certainty that a loved one has been killed, murdered with all the fear and guilt that brings? Or does the suffering reach even greater proportions when that child is missing, presumed - but not certainly - dead? Is the inevitable hope such a condition brings a small benefit or an added torture?The family of Kimberley Moreau may have a view on the subject, having been exposed to the greatest, and as yet unresolved, trauma of losing their daughter or sister. More than thirty years of trauma. Certainly, Kimberley has, for many years, been declared officially deceased but knowing her fate for sure has eluded the family. It still does. Similarly, despite their suspicions, they do not know for certain who perpetrated the crime which led to her disappearance.When people are missing for many years; history stops. 'They will not grow old, as we grow old; age will not weary them...' Laurence Binyon's words were written for his compatriots killed in the first world war. But they apply in situations such as Kimberley's. She is forever a teen. Her hairstyle is forever 1980s; short, curled, of its age.Time stopped for her, it would seem, in that decade of excess. But, as in the case of others lost, presumed dead, her story needs to be told. It helps to keep her memory alive.

The convergence of dramatic declines in birth rates worldwide, aside from sub-Saharan Africa, the rise of untrammelled global movement of capital, people and information, and the rapid-fire dissemination of a host of new medical technologies has led to the "globalization of motherhood". This book brings together research from the Global North and the Global South to illuminate how contemporary motherhood is being changed by the processes of globalization. It locates declining fertility and desire for motherhood in the context of female employment, the development of the global market in reproductive technologies, the rising transnational labour market demand for feminized carework, and changing family forms. Focusing on the impacts on women who mother- and enable others to do so- across diverse contexts, the book examines the way in which conception, gestation mothering labor and care are being mobilized across national boundaries. Bringing together demographers, sociologists, lawyers, public health and social theorists, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of globalization studies, development studies, gender studies, feminist politics, political economy, human rights, and social policy.

Contemporary visions of the future have been shaped by hopes and fears about the effects of human technology and global capitalism on the natural world. In an era of climate change, mass extinction, and oil shortage, such visions have become increasingly catastrophic, even apocalyptic. Exploring the close relationship between science fiction, ecology, and environmentalism, the essays in Green Planets consider how science fiction writers have been working through this crisis. Beginning with H. G. Wells and passing through major twentieth-century writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, Stanislaw Lem, and Thomas Disch to contemporary authors like Margaret Atwood, China Miéville, and Paolo Bacigalupi—as well as recent blockbuster films like Avatar and District 9—the essays in Green Planets consider the important place for science fiction in a culture that now seems to have a very uncertain future. The book includes an extended interview with Kim Stanley Robinson and an annotated list for further exploration of “ecological SF” and related works of fiction, nonfiction, films, television, comics, children’s cartoons, anime, video games, music, and more. Contributors include Christina Alt, Brent Bellamy, Sabine Höhler, Adeline Johns-Putra, Melody Jue, Rob Latham, Andrew Milner, Timothy Morton, Eric C. Otto, Michael Page, Christopher Palmer, Gib Prettyman, Elzette Steenkamp, Imre Szeman.
