Now in its second edition, An Introduction to Sociology for Health Carers provides an accessible grounding for all nursing and health care students who have little previous experience of studying Sociology but who, within their first year courses, need to quickly develop sociological thinking skills and knowledge that they can apply to their own care practice. As a discipline, Sociology focuses on how human lives are socially structured and organised, and on the ways in which everyday experiences are made meaningful - a crucial underpinning of health and social care theory and practice. This engaging text introduces basic sociological concepts and techniques and encourages all health care students to make the most of their experiences in the practice environment, learning from these, and becoming a reflective, sociologically-informed practitioner.

Collection of programmes which follow various climbers as they attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest. 'Everest - Beyond the Limit: Season One' (2006) was shot during the second deadliest climbing season on Mount Everest and in an unprecedented move cameras were strapped to the Sherpas' helmets to record nearly every step or misstep. The resulting footage provides viewers with a real sense of what it takes to conquer the world's most formidable peak. In Season Two (2007) of the documentary series, expedition leader Russell Brice and a new team of climbers attempt to conquer the mountain. Phil Keoghan presents 'Deadliest Climb - After the Climb' in which expert mountaineers, who have already successfully climbed Everest, share the experiences they endured on their dangerous and difficult journey. 'Deadliest Climb - British Heroes' follows two climbers as they attempt to break separate world records on Mount Everest. David Tait attempts to summit the mountain from the north side, travel down the south side, and then complete the journey in reverse. Rod Baber has reached the summit of all the highest peaks in Europe but for the first time, attempts to climb above 24, 500 feet on Everest.

Terrorism has become an everyday reality in most contemporary societies. In a context of heightened fear can juries be trusted to remain impartial when confronted by defendants charged with terrorism? Do they scrutinize prosecution cases carefully, or does emotion trump reason once the spectre of terrorism is invoked? This book examines these questions from a range of disciplinary perspectives. The authors look at the how jurors in terrorism trials are likely to respond to gruesome evidence, including beheading videos. The 'CSI effect' is examined as a possible response to forensic evidence, and jurors with different learning preferences are compared. Virtual interactive environments, built like computer games, may be created to provide animated reconstructions of the prosecution or defence case. This book reports on how to create such presentations, culminating in the analysis of a live simulated trial using interactive visual displays followed by jury deliberations. The team of international, transdisciplinary experts draw conclusions of global legal and political significance, and contribute to the growing scholarship on comparative counter-terrorism law. The book will be of great interest to scholars, students and practitioners of law, criminal justice, forensic science and psychology.

Recent research in Africa has shown a wide range of political systems, from small societies of wandering hunters to large states of several million people comparable with mediaeval European feudal kingdoms. In between are many societies in which a central government is lacking; the political system is based upon a balance of power between many small groups, which with their lack of classes or specialized political offices, have been called 'ordered anarchies'. First published in 1958.

There's a kind of 'tough love' at work in these poems - a lyrical, romantic yearning shot through with the poet's clear eye and wry humour. I think of them as tiny, poised narratives of lost words, remembered places and the unravelling of love. This is a memorable, assured collection - I'm certain David Tait is one to watch.' - Amanda Dalton
