The Church, Authority and Foucault provides a fresh ecclesiological critique that confirms the Churchâe(tm)s vocation to welcome the stranger, honour new wisdom and work for change. The book breaks new ground by using Michel Foucaultâe(tm)s concept of space as a basis for interpreting church as a space of freedom. This leads to a re-evaluation of authority using Foucaultâe(tm)s concept of power-relations. Within this framework, Steven Ogden construes the church leaderâe(tm)s role as principal interpreter of faith. He then examines the inherent risk of misusing authority in ways that diminish the consent of the faithful. Further, Ogden demonstrates the critical role gossip has in ecclesial discourse, exacerbating the plight of the stranger as a consequence of the misuse of authority. Ogden concludes that the Church is called to enable human transformation in ways that challenge and renew structures of authority, within and beyond the Church.

This is the only money guide you’ll ever need. That’s a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves. So what makes this one different? Well, you won’t be overwhelmed with a bunch of ‘tips’ … or a strict budget (that you won’t follow). You’ll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here, and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand. This book will show you how to create an entire financial plan that is so simple you can sketch it on the back of a serviette … and you’ll be able to manage your money in 10 minutes a week. You’ll also get the skinny on: • Saving up a six-figure house deposit in 20 months • Doubling your income using the ‘Trapeze Strategy’ • Saving $77,641 and wipe almost seven years off your mortgage • Finding a financial advisor who won’t rip you off • Handing your kids (or grandkids) a $140,000 cheque on their 21st birthday • Why you don’t need $1 million to retire … with the ‘Donald Bradman Retirement Strategy’. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. This book is full of stories from everyday Aussies — single people, young families, empty nesters, retirees — who have applied the simple steps in this book and achieved amazing, life-changing results. And you’re next. About the Author SCOTT PAPE is the Barefoot Investor. A fiercely independent investment advisor who, for over a decade, has reached millions of Australians through his newspaper columns, and on TV and radio. In 2014 he and his family lost everything in a bushfire...but what they did next—that's the real story.

Sarah Wilson is an intrepid solver of problems and investigator of how to live a better life. For five years, she has made it her mission to help the world to quit sugar, after discovering the health dangers of this ubiquitous and addictive ingredient. In her new book, she turns her attention to another big problem: that of anxiety. Sarah has been an anxiety sufferer her whole life. She describes herself as 'all striving and no arriving.' As in the early days of the sugar experiment, Sarah makes herself a subject of one, and starts investigating. She looks at the triggers and the treatments, the fashions and the fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers and, even, the Dalai Lama. She pulls at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, and unravels the notion that it is a difficult, dangerous disease that must be medicated into submission. Ultimately, she re-frames anxiety as a spiritual quest rather than a burdensome affliction. She describes it as a state of yearning, one that will lead us closer to the things in life that really matter. Practical and poetic, wise and funny, this is a small book with a big heart. It will encourage the myriad sufferers of the world's most common mental illness to feel not just better about their condition but delighted by the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.

What happens when an acclaimed Australian chef is asked to ditch his favourite fat-laden ingredients, forgo many of the rich Italian dishes he has spent 20 years perfecting, and remove gluten from his recipes? Well, because it's Georgia, the love of his life who's asking, he puts his heart and soul into changing the way they eat. With advice from fitness and nutrition guru Donna Aston, Georgia helped Tobie identify the changes they needed to make and get healthy. They created 100 recipes free of gluten, refined sugar and highly processed carbs, with a healthy amount of 'good' fats, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and, above all, masses of flavour. From breakfast to lunches, dinners and dessert, this is how they eat now. 'This book is jam-packed with really delicious, honest, healthy food. Embrace it in your weekly routine and I'm sure you'll feel the benefits - I hope you love it as much as I do.' Jamie Oliver

Through the course of studying social work and beyond it can be difficult to take a step back and reflect upon what it is to be a social worker, such are the demands of the process of qualification and the role itself. Using this as a starting point, How to be a Social Worker critically examines the knowledge base of social work – from human growth and development to social work research – and explores how your own values, principles and experience combine to shape your social work identity and practice alongside this. Stimulating your thinking in new ways, both about yourself and your life as a social worker, this book: • Uses a number of innovative exercises and case studies to help you to actively apply theory to practice. • Encourages reflexive thinking to support you in developing your own social work identity. • Considers the ways in which your social work identity can be maintained when working alongside other professional groups. Linked to a range of core modules on pre-qualifying social work programmes but written also for those practitioners committed to nurturing their own social work identities, How to be a Social Worker is a must have text from one of social work's most up-and-coming authors. Priscilla Dunk-West is a Senior Lecturer in Social Work at the University of South Australia, Australia. A sociologist and social worker, Priscilla has held university appointments in both Australia and England, teaching across a wide range of modules on the Social Work curriculum.

Bill Leak’s daily cartoons in The Australian newspaper have been variously described as the works of a genius and Australia’s most insightful and thought-provoking arbiter of the main story of the day. Thumbing through Trigger Warning, a collection of Bill’s cartoons from 2016, it’s easy to argue that those terms have not been used loosely. When one of the cartoons in this collection prompted the Human Rights Commission to take action under law 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, it sparked a national debate on free speech, the right to laugh and the right to offend. While one side of the Leak brain was outraged at this action, the other side saw it as manna from heaven. He used the ensuing debate to defend his rights through more brilliant cartoons, most featuring the Human Rights Commission’s Gillian Triggs and Tim Soutphommasane, the main protagonists in the case brought against him. Bill was eventually vindicated when the case was withdrawn, sparking yet another hilarious (and jarring) cartoon to wind up the issue. In true cartoonist style, he had the first and last laugh while bringing a taboo issue (in this instance the high rates of parental neglect of many Indigenous children in remote Aboriginal communities) to national prominence. Sparking debate while making people laugh is what he does best and that’s why he’s a nine-time Walkley Award winner. Trigger Warning features a host of other insights on the stories of the day, covering a wide range of political and cultural topics and key moments from the year that was. They’re all in the unique Leak style - beautifully drawn and coloured, with erudite captions - and when thumbed through in a bound collection, offer a humorous and thought-provoking take on 2016, from the demise of Labor attack dog Sam Dastyari, through to the introduction of the Safe Schools program, the election of Donald Trump, and onto the death of Fidel Castro. And, they’re all drawn without fear or favour. As 2017 unfolds with the US on tenterhooks, the UK post-Brexit, refugee hordes flooding into Europe, the Middle East being the Middle East, China making inspection tours of the South Seas and a rogue Senate in Australia, the rights to laugh and offend have never been more important. For a cartoonist like Bill, not all bad news is Bleak.

Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as ‘Human Computers’, calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts, these ‘coloured computers’ used pencil and paper to write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Moving from World War II through NASA’s golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women’s rights movement, ‘Hidden Figures’ interweaves a rich history of mankind’s greatest adventure with the intimate stories of five courageous women whose work forever changed the world.

Forty-eight years ago, a young and apprehensive Tony Kevin set off with his family on his first diplomatic posting, to Moscow at the height of the Cold War. In the Russian winter of 2016 he returns alone, a private citizen aged 73. What will he find? How has Russia changed since those grim Soviet days? Tony Kevin had a successful and challenging diplomatic career, ending with ambassadorships to Poland (1991-94) and Cambodia (1994-97). He now applies his attention to Vladimir Putin’s Russia, a government and nation routinely demonised and disdained in Western capitals. Why does President Putin arouse such a high level of Western antagonism? Is the West throwing away the lessons of recent history in recklessly drifting into a perilous and unnecessary new Cold War confrontation against Russia? Tony Kevin invites readers to see this great nation anew: to explore with him the complex roots of Russian national identity and values, drawing on its traumatic recent seventy-year Soviet Communist past and its momentous thousand-year history as a great Orthodox Christian nation that has both loved and feared ‘the West’, and which the West has loved and feared back in equal measure.

“There are at least two kinds of games,” states James P. Carse as he begins this extraordinary book. “One could be called finite; the other infinite.” Finite games are the familiar contests of everyday life; they are played in order to be won, which is when they end. But infinite games are more mysterious. Their object is not winning, but ensuring the continuation of play. The rules may change, the boundaries may change, even the participants may change—as long as the game is never allowed to come to an end. What are infinite games? How do they affect the ways we play our finite games? What are we doing when we play—finitely or infinitely? And how can infinite games affect the ways in which we live our lives? Carse explores these questions with stunning elegance, teasing out of his distinctions a universe of observation and insight, noting where and why and how we play, finitely and infinitely. He surveys our world—from the finite games of the playing field and playing board to the infinite games found in culture and religion—leaving all we think we know illuminated and transformed. Along the way, Carse finds new ways of understanding everything, from how an actress portrays a role to how we engage in sex, from the nature of evil to the nature of science. Finite games, he shows, may offer wealth and status, power and glory, but infinite games offer something far more subtle and far grander. Carse has written a book rich in insight and aphorism. Already an international literary event, Finite and Infinite Games is certain to be argued about and celebrated for years to come. Reading it is the first step in learning to play the infinite game.

Groundbreaking book by the Nobel Prize Winner who discovered telomeres, telomerase, and their role in the ageing process, and the psychologist who researched specific lifestyle habits to protect them and slow down disease and lengthen life. Have you wondered why some 60-year olds look and feel like 40-year-olds and why some 40-year-olds look and feel like 60-year-olds? While many factors contribute to ageing and illness, Nobel Prize-winning Doctor Elizabeth Blackburn discovered biological markers, called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our DNA. Dr. Blackburn discovered that the length and health of one's telomeres provides a biological basis for the long hypothesised mind-body connection. But perhaps more importantly, along with leading health Psychologist, Dr. Elissa Epel, discovered that there are things we can do to improve and lengthen our telomeres to keep us vital and disease-free. This book will help people increase the reader's lifespan and health-span (the number of years during this time that they remain healthy and active), including information on how sleep, exercise, and diet profoundly affect our telomeres, and how chronic stress can eat away at our telomeres. Included are lists of which foods are healthy for our telomeres; how ageing begins in utero: mothers who are highly stressed during pregnancy have children with shorter telomeres, and how thinking you are young and vital helps keep you that way!

This book provides the reader with a comprehensive, relevant, and visually rich insight into the world of research methods specifically aimed at product designers. It includes practical case studies and tutorials that will inform, inspire, and help you to conduct product design research better. Product designers need a comprehensive understanding of research methods as their day-to-day work routinely involves them observing people, asking questions, searching for information, making and testing ideas, and ultimately generating 'solutions' to 'problems'. Manifest in the design process is the act of research. Huge technological advances in information, computing, and manufacturing processes also offer enormous opportunities to product designers such as the development of "intelligent" products and services, but at the same time raise important research questions that need to be dealt with. Product designers are, in many ways, best placed to address these challenges because of the manner in which they apply their design thinking to problems.

Discussing each of Wong's eleven films—fromAs Tears Go By and Days of Being Wild to 2046 and The Grandmaster—the conversations also explore Wong's trademark themes of time, nostalgia, and beauty, and their roots in his personal life. The first book by Wong Kar Wai, and the first comprehensive look at his oeuvre, this stunning, lavishly illustrated volume is as evocative as walking into one of Wong's lush films. With more than 250 photographs and film stills and an opening critical essay by Powers, this volume is poised to become the film book of the year.

It is September 1995. Selin, a Turkish-American college freshman from New Jersey, is about to embark on her first year at Harvard University, where she is deter­mined to decipher the mysteries of language and to become a writer. In between studying psycho­linguistics and the philosophy of language, teaching ESL to a Costa Rican plumber, and befriending her classmate Svetlana (a Serbian refugee from Connecticut), Selin falls in love with a Hungarian maths student in her Russian class. She spends the summer in the Hungarian countryside teaching English to village children, where sad and comic misunderstandings ensue. Full of the razor-sharp evocations of character and place that have long delighted readers of Batuman’s non-fiction, The Idiot tackles literary ambition, female friend­ship, the American dream, Chomskian linguistics, the Russian novel and romantic love. ‘There is hardly a single action we perform in that phase which we would not give anything, in later life, to be able to annul,’ Proust once wrote, ‘but adolescence is the only period in which we learn anything.’

I am immersed in art. I make it, collect it, it fills and defines my existence. Childish, shamanistic, wild and anarchic, it is as far outside the box as it is possible to be. Box?? There is no box! Be bold, be adventurous. Do profound things, dazzle yourself and the world. Don't wear beige: it might kill you. Contribute to society, and live large. Life is short, make every moment count.

"As New York City's transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan managed the seemingly impossible and transformed the streets of one of the world's greatest, toughest cities into dynamic spaces safe for pedestrians and bikers. Her approach was dramatic and effective- Simply painting a part of the street to make it into a plaza or bus lane not only made the street safer, but it also lessened congestion and increased foot traffic, which improved the bottom line of businesses. Real-life experience confirmed that if you know how to read the street, you can make it function better by not totally reconstructing it but by reallocating the space that's already there. Breaking the street into its component parts, Streetfight demonstrates, with step-by-step visuals, how to rewrite the underlying osource codeo of a street, with pointers on how to add protected bike paths, improve crosswalk space, and provide visual cues to reduce speeding. Achieving such a radical overhaul wasn't easy, and Streetfight pulls back the curtain on the battles Sadik-Khan won to make her approach work. She includes examples of how this new way to read the streets has already made its way around the world, from pocket parks in Mexico City and Los Angeles to more pedestrian-friendly streets in Auckland and Buenos Aires, and innovative bike-lane designs and plazas in Austin, Indianapolis, and San Francisco. Many are inspired by the changes taking place in New York City and are based on the same techniques. Streetfight deconstructs, reassembles, and reinvents the street, inviting readers to see it in ways they never imagined."

Lying in a magic-induced coma, the King of Thyrsland is on the brink of death: if his enemies knew, chaos would reign. In fear for his life and his kingdom, his five daughters set out on a perilous journey to try to save him, their only hope an aunt they have yet to meet, a shadowy practitioner of undermagic who lives on the wild northern borders. No-one can stand before the fierce tattooed soldier and eldest daughter Bluebell, an army commander who is rumoured to be unkillable, but her sisters, the loyal and mystical Ash, beautiful but unhappily married Rose, pious Willow and uncertain Ivy all have their own secrets to keep from her — the kind of secrets that if revealed could bring disaster down upon not only them, but the entire kingdom. Waiting in the wings is stepbrother Wylm whose dealings with Bluebell's greatest enemy, Hakon the Raven King, would end Bluebell's dreams of revenge on his mother and propel his own desperate grasp for power. Daughters of the Storm is a richly drawn historical fantasy full of passion, magic and fire, an intimate epic that traces the lives of five complex women as they pursue a quest upon which the fate of a kingdom — as well as their own destinies — rests.

This is football comic-ery, but not as you know it. Welcome to the inimitable work of illustrator David Squires. Football and comics. Once a hearty Saturday combination to match cartoons and cereal, in recent years they’ve drifted apart. Thankfully for us, Squires is here to change all that. In The Illustrated History of Football, his first book, Squires relives some of football’s most glorious moments and meets its greatest figures. In a sport full of handsome paycheques and corporate sponsors, he also casts a critical eye over corrupt backroom workings and helps pierce football’s overblown balloon.

A recent U.S. Department of Education survey found that high school girls take the same number of math and science classes as boys and earn slightly higher grades, but only 15 percent of U.S. collegiate women major in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Encouraging young women and girls to pursue STEM career tracks has never been more important. Women in Science highlights notable women's contributions to various scientific fields and inspires readers both young and old. A fascinating collection full of striking, singular art, the book features 50 profiles and illustrated portraits of women in STEM from the ancient to the modern world, and also contains infographics about interesting and relevant topics such as lab equipment and rates of women currently working in STEM fields. Profiles feature well-known figures, such as biologist Rachel Carson and primatologist Jane Goodall, as well as lesser-known pioneers, such as Dr. Patricia Bath, the first African-American woman to receive a medical patent, and Barbara McClintock, a Nobel Prize-winning cytogeneticist.

The rivulets and streams of red scarring run across his chest and up around his throat. She'd put her hand on his heart and stopped him dead.'

With this single twist, the four lives at the heart of Naomi Alderman's extraordinary, visceral novel are utterly transformed, and we look at the world in an entirely new light.

THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option...Unmissable' New York Times At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a medical student asking what makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon working in the core of human identity – the brain – and finally into a patient and a new father. What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when when life is catastrophically interrupted? What does it mean to have a child as your own life fades away? Paul Kalanithi died while working on this profoundly moving book, yet his words live on as a guide to us all. When Breath Becomes Air is a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a gifted writer who became both.

A field guide to the volcanoes, volcanic features and dramatic landscapes of Tongariro National Park. New Zealand sits precariously on the collision zone between the continental Australian Plate and the Oceanic Pacific Plate, one of the most active tectonic settings in the world. At the apex of New Zealand's most concentrated area of geothermal activity is the Tongariro Volcanic Centre, a zone slowly widening as the Earth's crust is stretched and thinned by the relentless forces beneath. Tongariro Field Guide provides a comprehensive introduction to the Tongariro Volcanic Centre and the incredible forces that shape and mould the landscape. It tells the turbulent history of the volcanoes, explains the inherent processes at work with detailed photographs and diagrams, identifies the volcanic features found in the park - vents, peaks and flows - and shows you where to find them on the park's famous walks and tracks. Included are the post-eruption events of Ruapehu in 1995-1996, the long-predicted dam burst of the Crater Lake and safe passage of the major lahar in 2007, and the recent eruptions from Mount Tongariro, the first from this volcano in a century. On a smaller scale, Tongariro Field Guide updates the research work of New Zealand scientists, including the study of ash layers using improved techniques to reveal previously incorrect predictions about the age of the volcanoes in the area.

Self, World, and Time takes up the question of the form and matter of Christian ethics as an intellectual discipline. What is it about? How does Christian ethics relate to the humanities, especially philosophy, theology, and behavioral studies? How does its shape correspond to the shape of practical reason? In what way does it participate in the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Oliver O'Donovan discusses ethics with self, world, and time as foundation poles of moral reasoning, and with faith, love, and hope as the virtues anchoring the moral life. Blending biblical, historico-theological, and contemporary ideas in its comprehensive survey, Self, World, and Time is an exploratory study that adds significantly to O'Donovan's previous theoretical reflections on Christian ethics.
