In Owls of the United States and Canada he showcases both of these talents and reveals a wealth of knowledge about owl biology. Anyone interested in these fascinating birds will treasure this book for years to come. – Brian E. Small, Birding Magazine There is no group of birds more mysterious and fascinating than owls. They have become the stuff of lore and legend – from the Ro- man myth that an owl foot could reveal secrets to the First Nations belief that an owl feather could give a newborn better night vision. But the truth about owls is much more exciting. In this gorgeous book, celebrated natural history writer and wildlife photographer Wayne Lynch reveals the secrets of these elusive spe- cies with stunning photographs, personal anecdotes, and accessible science. The photos alone are masterpieces. Unlike most published owl photos, the majority of these were taken in the wild – a product of the author-photographer’s incredible knowledge and patience. Lynch complements the photos with facts about anatomy, habitat, diet, and family life. For each of nineteen species inhabiting Canada and the United States, he provides a range map and a brief discus- sion of its distribution, population size, and status. Lynch debunks myths about owls’ “supernatural” powers of sight and hearing, discusses courtship rituals, and offers personal tips for finding them in the wild. From the great horned to the tiny elf owl, this amazing volume captures the beauty and mystery of these charismatic birds of prey. Wayne Lynch is the author of numerous award-winning books and television documentaries. One of Canada’s most widely published photographers, his books include Wild Birds across the Prairies, Mountain Bears, and Penguins of the World. He lives in Calgary.

Manore and Dale G. Miner The Culture of Hunting in Canada is about a pivotal but little studied aspect of Canadian history, culture, and society. It covers  the history of hunting from the pre-colonial pe- riod until the present in all parts of Canada, featuring essays by practitioners and scholars of hunting and by pro- and anti-hunting lobbyists. The result crosses the boundaries between scholarship and personal reflection, and between academia and advocacy. The essays collected here address important historical and contemporary issues regarding the culture and practice of hunting. Topics include hunting identities; hunting and conservation; tensions between hunters and non-hunters and between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal hunters; hunting ethics; debates over hunting practices and regulations; animal rights; and gun control. Jean L. Manore teaches history at Bishop’s University. Dale G. Miner is a partner in a research consulting business.

In this comprehensive study, Gordon Hak approaches the forest industry from the perspectives of workers and employers, examining the two main sets of institutions that structured the relationship during the Fordist era: the companies and the unions. Hak relates daily routines of production and profit-making to broader forces of unionism, business ideology, ecological protest, techno- logical change, and corporate concentration. The struggle of the small-business sector to survive in the face of corporate growth, the history of the industry on the Coast and in the Interior, the transformations in capital- labour relations during the period, govern- ment forest policy, and the forest industry’s encounter with the emerging environmental movement are all considered in this eloquent analysis. Gordon Hak is a member of the History Department at Malaspina University-College. July 2007 272 pages, 19 b/w photos, 2 maps, 6 x 9” 0-7748-1308-3 / 978-0-7748-1308-2 New in paper $29.95 UBC PRESS To most, the flush of a toilet is routine – the way we banish waste and ensure cleanliness. It is safe, efficient, necessary, nonpolitical, and utterly unremarkable. Yet Jamie Benidick- son’s examination of the social and legal his- tory of sewage in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom demonstrates that the uncontroversial reputation of flushing is deceptive. At a time when community water quality can no longer be taken for granted, The Culture of Flushing is particularly relevant for investigating and clarifying the murky evolution of waste treatment. The Culture of Flushing is essential reading for specialists in environmental history, envi- ronmental law, public health, engineering, and public policy. Readers concerned with protecting water quality and the environ- ment will also find it unique, comprehensive, and accessible. Jamie Benidickson is the author of Idleness, Water, and a Canoe: Reflections on Paddling for Pleasure.

This work, a map of memory of British Colmbia’s old buildings and historic sites, combines his trademark delicate watercolour paintings (160 of them) with photographs, architectural plans and even old postcards. – The Globe and Mail Michael Kluckner, a highly talented water- colourist, began a decade ago to document in paintings some of the historic landmarks that signal the ever-evolving variety of human settlement patterns across B.C. …this book rep- resents a substantial contribution to the literary matter of British Columbia and is one that anyone who loves this province will treasure. – Stephen Hume, Vancouver Sun The old buildings and historic places of British Columbia form a kind of “roadside memory,” a tangible link with stories of Surveying Central British Columbia A Photojournal of Frank Swannell 1920-1928 Jay Sherwood Surveying Central British Columbia traces the career of Frank Swannell, one of British Columbia’s most famous surveyors, follow- ing his return from World War I. Consid- ered one of BC’s most famous surveyors, Swannell’s journals and outstanding pho- tographs of central BC show the changes beginning to occur in this largely wilder- ness region. Swannell photographed First Peoples, settlers, various methods of trans- portation, and the daily life of a surveying crew. He took about 1500 photographs from 1920 to 1928, and the author has selected the best for this book; many are previously unpublished and have historical signifi- cance. In particular, Swannell’s photographs of the landscape of the Coast Mountains are especially relevant in demonstrating climate change in British Columbia. settlement, change, and abandonment that reflect the great themes of our history. With small towns declining and old properties changing, so little of the history of these places has been recorded in museums or archives, and so much of it may disappear as families disperse and memories dim. Vanishing British Columbia is a record of these places and their stories. It combines engaging and insightful historical commen- tary with over 160 of the author’s original paintings. It has an exceptional assortment of historic imagery, including old postcards, architectural plans, and photographs. Michael Kluckner is a writer, artist, and heritage activist. He is the author of Van- couver Remembered and Vancouver the Way It Was, among other books. He is also a regular contributor to Canadian Geographic and Harrowsmith Country Life.

Mayne This book will have wide appeal, especially since the events described were so controversial at the time (and arguably still now). – Chris Madsen, author, Another Kind of Justice For many Canadians, events during the mission to Somalia in the early 1990s remain a stain on our reputation as one of the world’s most respected peacekeeping nations. Grant Dawson’s analysis of political, diplomatic, and military decision making avoids a narrow focus on the shocking offences of a few Canadian soldiers, deftly investigating the broader context of the deployment. Betrayed tells a fascinating story about Canada’s effort during the Battle of the Atlantic. – Roger Sarty, co-author of No Higher Purpose In January 1944, Vice Admiral Percy Walker Nelles was fired from his position as head of the Royal Canadian Navy. Betrayed reveals the true story behind the dismissal: a divisive power struggle between two elite groups within the RCN pitted the Navy’s regular officers against a small group of self-appointed spokesmen for the voluntary naval reserve. Threats of public scandal, mass insurrection, and political intimidation caused one of the worst breakdowns in Canadian civil-military relations, revealing complex aspects of military leadership. This fascinating investigation into the machinations of a divided navy tackles important questions of military professionalism, leadership, and identity. Richard O. Mayne is a historian with the Department of National Defence’s Directorate of History and Heritage in Ottawa.

Whitney Lackenbauer In this impeccably researched and sensitively written study, Whitney Lackenbauer provides valuable insights into how Canada’s military had used, and misused, Aboriginal lands through the twentieth century. – Jonathan Vance, author of Building Canada Base closures, use of airspace for weapons testing and low-level flying, environmental awareness, and Aboriginal land claims have focused attention in recent years on the use of Native lands for military training. But is the military’s interest in Aboriginal lands new? Battle Grounds analyzes a century of government-Aboriginal interaction and negotiation to explore how the Canadian military came to use Aboriginal lands for training. It examines what the process reveals about the relationship between governments and Native communities, and how increasing Aboriginal assertiveness and activism have affected the issue. P.

UBC PRESS www.ubcpress.ca4 NATIVE STUDIES How It Is The Native American Philosophy of V.F. Cordova Edited by Kathleen Dean Moore, Kurt Peters, Ted Jojola, and Amber Lacy V.F. Cordova sets out a complete Native American philosophy. Cordova clearly contrasts Native American beliefs with the traditions of the Enlightenment and Chris- tianized Europeans (what she calls “Euro- man” philosophy). By doing so, she leads her readers into a deeper understanding of both traditions and encourages us to question any view that claims a singular truth. From these essays – which are lucid, insight- ful, frequently funny, and occasionally angry – we receive a powerful new vision of how we can live with respect, reciprocity, and joy. Viola Cordova was the first Native Ameri- can woman to receive a PhD in philosophy. While becoming an expert in traditional Western philosophy, she began to define a Native American philosophy. Although she died prematurely of a brain aneurysm before she could complete her life’s work, some of her colleagues have organized her pioneering contributions into this provocative book.

Thornton This book will be a model for Native Alaskan cultural ecology. Case studies are illustrated with the lives of traditional Tlingit elders and the naming of particular places, showing how names, stories, songs, myth, legend, history, artistic designs, food gathering, and material culture (such as boat design) are specific to place. – Richard Dauenhauer, University of Alaska Thomas Thornton examines the concept of place in the language, social structure, economy, and ritual of southeast Alaska’s Tlingit Indians. As Thornton explains, place signifies not only a specific location, but also reveals the ways in which individuals and social groups define themselves. Being and Place Among the Tlingit makes a substantive contribution to the literature on the Tlingit, the Northwest Coast cultural area, Native American and indigenous studies, and to the growing social scientific and humanis- tic literature on space, place, and landscape. Thomas F. Thornton is a professor of anthro- pology at Portland State University.

Indians appear at the time of contact, are involved in fighting or treaties, and then seem to vanish, usually onto reservations. In Native Seattle, Coll Thrush explodes the commonly accepted notion that Indians and cities – and thus Indian and urban histories – are mutually exclusive, that Indians and cit- ies cannot coexist, and that one must neces- sarily be eclipsed by the other. Native people and places played a vital part in the founding of Seattle and in what the city is today, just as urban changes transformed what it meant to be Native. In Seattle, the strands of urban and Indian history have always been intertwined. Including an atlas of indigenous Seattle, Native Seattle is a new kind of urban Indian history, a book with implications that reach far beyond the region. Coll Thrush is an assistant professor of his- tory at the University of British Columbia.

Without question, the political participation of racialized minorities in multicultural cities is a critical subject, one that Race and the City handles deftly. – Lloyd Wong, co-editor of Transnational Identities and Practices in Canada In Race and the City, Shanti Fernando examines the mechanisms of political mobilization under systemic racism. She draws on case studies, interviews, and a detailed understanding of the racialized legal and sociocultural histories of both the United States and Canada. Her case studies focus on Toronto and Los Angeles, respectively. Fernando argues that while increasing diversity may be a challenge for systemic inclusiveness, it is one that must be met if Canada is to uphold its vision of a truly democratic society. Shanti Fernando is an assistant professor of political science at York University.

There is a growing need for new thinking on how diverse communities can live together in productive harmony and not in isolation. Policy is often dominated by mitigating the perceived negative effects of diversity, but little thought has been given to how a “diversity dividend” or increased innovative capacity might be achieved. The Intercultural City analyses the relationship of urban policy to policies on cultural diversity, principally in the UK but also drawing upon original research in North America, Europe, and Australasia. It provides significant and practical advice for the reader, with new insights and tools for practitioners, including the “intercultural lens,” “indicators of openness,” and “urban cultural literacy”.

Annually, it draws more people than the city’s major sporting and cultural events. Its reputation among American markets is comparable to Les Halles in Paris and Covent Garden in London – the difference being that it has survived. Survival of the peoples’ market has not been easy for Pike Place. Nevertheless, Pike Place Market remains. People arrive from farms and city neighborhoods to shop, sell, gather with friends, and take in the view. Soul of the City is the story of the reformers who conceived of the Market, the hap- penstance amalgam of entrepreneurs and populists who brought it into being, the truck farmers who brought in their produce and their hopes, the people of Seattle who came to think of the Market as their birthright, and the recurring battles to keep progress from paving and reshaping it.

Finally, there’s a study of prostitution in the Maritimes, which also contributes to and extends the global dialogue. A truly engaging read. – Shannon Bell, author of Reading, Writing, and Rewriting the Prostitute Body Sex workers are often “objects” of study for academics and policy makers. Theories about their lives and policies that affect their work are usually developed without input from the sex workers themselves, because they are rarely seen as capable of analyzing the social and political world in which they work. In this book, however, sex workers set the tone. Leslie Ann Jeffrey and Gayle MacDonald interview sex workers in three Maritime cities and those who work around them: police, health-care providers, community workers/advocates, members of neighbourhood associations, and politicians. The sex workers discuss such issues as violence and safety, health and risk, politics and policy, media influence, and public perception, portraying the best and the worst facets of their working lives and expressing sentiments refreshingly at odds with commonly held opinions. Leslie Ann Jeffrey is an associate professor in the Department of History and Politics, University of New Brunswick, Saint John.

Bar Codes examines women lawyers’ attempts to reconcile their professional obligations with other aspects of their lives. It charts the life courses of women who constitute a first wave – an avant-garde – in a profession designed by men, for men, where formal codes of conduct and subtle cultural norms promote masculine values. A thorough analysis of women’s encounters with this culture provides some answers and raises more questions about the kinds of stresses that have become extreme in the lives of many Canadian women. This book adds to mounting evidence of marked gender differences in opportunities for advancement, demonstrating that many men still enjoy freedom from domestic responsibilities while women continue to face multiple barriers in their quest for career success. As Bar Codes shows, change is under way in the legal profession and women can succeed in reaching high levels within it, but the law remains, in many ways, a masculine institution.

Giroux Daring to Dream Toward a Pedagogy of the Unfinished Paulo Freire I know of no more acute a commentator on higher education in the United States today. Henry Giroux’s passion for education fires his powerful critique of the university ... While Giroux’s analysis is profound and unsparing, his book concludes with an imaginative strategy to transform the university into a truly democratic institution. – Howard Zinn Henry Giroux has been like a canary in the mine of U.S. culture – when he sends an alert, you know something is really amiss. If you have worked or studied in one of our universities, this is essential reading. – Toby Miller, author of Cultural Citizenship Henry Giroux is a tribune for democracy. He sees universities as democratic public spheres that must be defended in the repressive aftermath of 9/11. His new book is a tool we need to get the job done. – Ira Shor, CUNY Graduate School Dwight D. Eisenhower originally included “academic” in the draft of his landmark, oft-quoted speech on the military-indus- trial-complex. Giroux tells why Eisenhower saw the academy as part of the famous complex – and how his warning was vitally prescient for 21st-century America. Henry Giroux details the sweeping post- 9/11 assault being waged on the academy by militarization, corporatization, and right- wing fundamentalists who increasingly view critical thought itself as a threat to the dominant political order. Giroux argues that the university has become a handmaiden of the Pentagon and corporate interests, that it has lost its claim to independence and criti- cal learning, and that it has compromised its role as a democratic public sphere.

His last work enriches and extends the marvelous legacy he has left us, once again providing stimulating ideas and opening new directions for thought and action to create a more decent world. – Noam Chomsky, author of Manufacturing Consent and Perilous Powers Challenging us to recognize our “unfinished” selves, Freire’s uplifting message urges citizens, students, parents, and teachers to discover new horizons of hope and possibility for a better world. Connecting the personal with the political, Freire’s voice is as profound as it is inspiring, guiding us through the everyday acts of observation and critical thinking that link personal creativity with the prospects of a just and more humane world. Freire’s liberating pedagogy resists forms of fatalism reproduced in traditional education discourses that too often mechanize the act of knowing. Freire challenges all educators to embrace history as possibility, where the act of analyzing reality opens up space for critical reflection and creativity. Such acts, he shows, are not isolated and individual, but integral to larger forces for social change. One’s capacity to dream, to reach, and to engage with a troubled world are the essence of a meaningful and liberating life. The late Paulo Freire is perhaps the most influential education writer of our times. His many books, including his classic Pedagogy of the Oppressed, have been translated into more than 40 languages. He is the author most recently of Pedagogy of Indignation.

Much more than a biography, this book is a political tour of Obama’s legislative experience as well as his ideas about race, religion, and politics. Political writer John K. Wilson explores the reaction Obama has received from the left, the right, and the media. As the first presidential candidate from Generation X, Obama has generated an exciting movement of young people to support his campaign as he defines a new kind of broadly popular progressive politics. As improbable as such a quest may be (as Barack Obama This Improbable Quest John K. Wilson Obama admitted in his announcement to run for the Presidency, from which the subtitle is quoted), this fresh new candidate may be just the right one to bridge not only generations but ideologies that often divide. Amid all the hype surrounding Obama, this book provides the first in-depth look at what he believes, what he represents, and how he might transform American politics. John K. Wilson is the author of How the Left Can Win Arguments and Influence People: A Tactical Manual for Pragmatic Progressives; Newt Gingrich: Capitol Crimes and Misdemeanors; and The Myth of Political Correctness: The Conservative Attack on Higher Education.

This is not simply a history of Cuban communism but rather a personal history of its leader, Fidel Castro. Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution is not an apologia for past United States involvement in Cuban affairs. The author is severe in his judgments of such participation. Nor is he sparing in his sense of the betrayal of the original purposes of the Revolution of 1959 as manifested in the character and policies of Fidel Castro. As the work progresses from a study of the victims to a study of the beneficiaries of the Cuban Revolution, it leaves the reader with a deep sense of the tragedy of a revolution betrayed, but not one that could have been avoided easily. Montaner sees his role as critical analyst, not as an interventionist. One especially valuable aspect of this book is its intimate reevaluation of Fulgencio Batista. Whatever the reader’s judgment of Montaner’s work, no one can read it and be dismissive of the effort. It is a work of intimacy even though written in exile – and hence must be viewed as an important effort to understand the character of the man whose regime has changed the course of Cuban history in our times. Carlos Alberto Montaner is director of Firmas, a news agency and journalistic bureau located in Madrid, Spain.

Pritchard Journey Into Islam The Crisis of Globalization Akbar Ahmed North Korea’s development of nuclear weap- ons raises fears of nuclear war on the pe- ninsula and the specter of terrorists gaining access to weapons of mass destruction. It also represents a dangerous and disturbing break- down in U.S. foreign policy. Failed Diplomacy offers an insider’s view of what went wrong and allowed this isolated nation – a charter member of the Axis of Evil – to develop nu- clear weapons. Charles L. “Jack” Pritchard was intimately in- volved in developing America’s North Korea policy under Presidents Clinton and Bush. Here, he offers an authoritative analysis of recent developments on the Korean penin- sula and reveals how the Bush administra- tion’s mistakes damaged the prospects for controlling nuclear proliferation. Although multilateral negotiations continue, Pritchard proclaims the Six-Party Talks to be a failure. Hard-hitting and insightful, Failed Diplomacy offers a stinging critique of the Bush admin- istration’s manner and policy in dealing with North Korea. More hopefully, it suggests what can be learned from missed opportunities.

As Western leaders wage a war on terrorism, Ahmed offers insightful suggestions on how the United States can improve relations with Islamic nations and peoples. Written with equal parts compassion and urgency, Journey into Islam makes a powerful case for forming bonds across religion, race, and tradition to create lasting harmony between Islam and the West.

His own words betray him as one of the few idealists remaining among us. And his trenchant analysis of America’s mendacity-ridden politics demands our attention and respect. – Robert Shogan, author of Backlash: The Killing of the New Deal George Washington is fabled to have said, “I cannot tell a lie.” But lie he did, and politi- cians have been lying ever since. Despite assurances to the contrary, politics is not about truth, justice, and principle. It is about money, power, and status. As astute political commentator Ben Ginsberg convincingly shows, politicians pretend to fight for prin- ciples in order to conceal their true selfish motives. Thus, in this new political season, Ginsberg encourages citizens to think outside the ballot box, finding new ways to act on behalf of their interests and the public good. But if they do vote, their motto should be “when in doubt vote them out.” October 2007 256 pages, 6 x 9” 1-59451-413-5 / 978-1-59451-413-5 Paperback original $24.95 PARADIGM PUBLISHERS www.ubcpress.ca10 INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS People Count!

The age of the nation-state has yielded to the age of the individual, and no one is better qualified than James N. Rosenau to track this shift. In prose that sings, he investigates the myriad ways that “people count” in global politics. Tracing developments in globalization, demography, and the skills revolution, Rosenau profiles 17 different groups and shows how and why they matter. Along the way, he tells the fascinating stories behind the roles that people play: Who the terrorists are, why soldiers fight, how citizens and immigrants compare, what connects the networkers, where travelers feel at home, and when the here-and-now takes a back seat to another world. This book seeks to depict a new era by analyzing the basic roles people occupy in their family, community, and society, including the wider world. James N.

But is this phenomenon just the latest fad? Are celebrities dabbling in an arena that is out of their depth, or are they bringing justified notice to important problems that might otherwise be ignored?

Yet now, for the first time, more people are living in urban rather than rural areas, bringing about an estrangement. This book is fundamentally about our relationship with nature, animals, and places. A series of interlinked essays leads readers on a journey that weaves through the themes of connection and alienation between humans and nature. The journey shows that our modern lifestyles and economies would require six to eight Earths if the entire global population adopted first-world extravagance. Pretty reveals a tragedy unfolding: we are rendering our own world inhospitable, and unless we make substantial changes, we risk losing what it means to be human. Jules Pretty is a professor of environment and society at the University of Essex, UK.

This looming ecological collapse will only be arrested if we can articulate and embrace what the natural world means to each of us, and then fight a series of hard political battles to preserve creation. On a subject about which it is easy to feel despair, Goodstein offers a realistic, ambitious, and hopeful political solution to avoid a century of mass extinction: a vision grounded in a moral view that embraces the interconnection of all life forms on the planet.

How does television change our engagement with the past? Can efforts to wipe out Communist legacies succeed? Should victims of the Holocaust be celebrated as heroes or as martyrs?

In Implausible Beliefs, Allan Mazur looks at the nature of irrational belief systems, their social roots and their cultural and political impact. Drawing on mainstream sociology and psychology, Mazur shows how as children we are socialized into these or similar beliefs, and how as adults we are influenced by spouses and friends. Personality is also a factor, sometimes abetted by stressful or lonely life situations. Implausible Beliefs differs from most current books on the subject in that it analyzes the overarching similarity of religious and secular belief systems. Lucidly written, it is a provocative and informative contribution to social psychology, sociology, religion, political science, and American culture.

Maggie Mamen enables readers to select the most relevant strategies for coping with and managing their particular symptoms. She provides a wealth of practical advice on key skills such as developing written and verbal communication, understanding social clues, managing behaviour, self-regulation, and im- proving organization. She also covers relevant teaching methods for the classroom. Children with regulation disorders are often misdiagnosed as “fussy,” “colicky,” or, worse, the parents are blamed for the child’s unusual responses to sensory input. The authors describe the everyday experiences of those who interact with infants and children with regulation disorders of sensory processing. They explain the distinguishing character- istics, symptoms, diagnosis, assessment and treatment of regulation disorders. Focusing on early intervention, this book presents a range of management strategies for sensory sensitivities, motor problems, over- or under-reaction, and extremes of behaviour. Living Sensationally is the quintessential resource on sensation and how it relates to our everyday living. Dunn translates research into practical ideas for individuals, families, and businesses, creating an understanding of the complex array of sensory patterns. This book walks the reader through the key features of the four major sensory types: Seekers, Bystanders, Avoiders, and Sensors. The author helps readers to identify their own patterns and the patterns of those around them, and then offers suggestions for harnessing this knowledge to better align their lives and their sensations.

For children with sensory processing needs – who either have low sensory thresholds and are overwhelmed by sensory stimulation, or have high thresholds and do not register stimulation – yoga can be hugely beneficial. This book presents easy-to-follow basic pos- tures and sequences for children of different ages. Nicole Cuomo gives practical advice on choosing appropriate sequences accord- ing to the child’s particular needs and mood, and includes photographs of each posture to supplement her descriptions. I have worked with couples where one is affected by Asperger syndrome for over ten years; reading this book was like being an observer of a world I am very familiar with. Any woman who has loved a man with Asperger syndrome will relate to this book and find her own experiences totally validated. This book offers hope and encouragement to both partners in an Asperger relationship; it is realistic, unbiased and heart- warming. I recommend this book to all who wish to develop an understanding of the effect that both having and living with Asperger syndrome can have upon a relationship. – Maxine Aston, author of Aspergers in Love and The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome This practical book provides a wealth of ideas for therapists, educators, and parents to help their children with sensory processing needs. Nicole Cuomo has been a pediatric occupational therapist for over 15 years and a yoga practitioner for over 20 years.

It offers a “solution focused” approach, which uses the existing skills and coping strategies of people with Asperger Syndrome to help them reach their goals. The authors describe the origins of the solution focused approach and discuss how it can be used to support individuals on the autistic spectrum. Complemented by case study examples and practical worksheets and tools, the book treats people with Asperger Syndrome as individuals aside from the “problem” or “disordered” aspects of autism. This empowering book will be of interest to people who are affected by Asperger Syndrome and autism, as well as professionals working with people on the spectrum. E. Veronica Bliss has over 20 years’ experience working as a psychologist with individuals on the autistic spectrum. Genevieve Edmonds provides talks, training and support in the field of autism.

Inside Anorexia describes the different experiences and challenges that teenage girls with anorexia and their families face. It demonstrates that the starting point for understanding anorexia must be the unique stories of individuals and their families. Structured around real-life accounts, the book provides a valuable insight into the lived experience of girls with anorexia and those who care about them. Useful fact boxes in each story provide an overview of current Bully Blocking How to Help Children who are Teased or Bullied, revised edition Evelyn M.

The book also includes useful information for those parents who are considering, seeking, or already involved with professional help for their child. Various kinds of professional interventions are discussed, including psychological treatment, psychiatric medications, and complementary and alternative therapies. Kenneth H.
