Fixing Drugs The Politics of Drug Prohibition

Fixing Drugs The Politics of Drug Prohibition By Sue Pryce
Drug use is an inherent part of our culture. Since the Sumerians wrote of the ‘joy of the poppy plant’ in 3000BC to the crack dens of today, people in every society have wanted to use drugs. Drug policy cannot be effective until this basic fact is acknowledged and incorporated into policy-thinking. Until we recognize that drug use is an integral feature of society, it cannot be eliminated. In this unique and engaging new book, the former chair of DrugScope Sue Pryce tackles the major issues surrounding drug policy. Why do governments persist with prohibition policies, despite their proven inefficacy? Why are some drugs criminalized, and some not? And why does society care about drug use at all?In a highly polarized debate, in which emotions run high, Pryce illuminates these questions and guides us through the problems, possibilities and realities of drug policy around the world.
is a very thoughtfully written Fixing Drugs The Politics of Drug Prohibition and it is very interesting to read the relationships, and the accomplishments.
Several people had recommended this book to me. I decided to order the book going through the book together and taking the quizzes. Fixing Drugs The Politics of Drug Prohibition is a great coversation starter and definitely worth purchasing.

The Foundations of Anti Apartheid Liberal Humanitarians and By Rob Skinner
Anti-apartheid was one of the most significant international causes of the late twentieth century. The book provides the first detailed history of the emergence of anti-apartheid activism in Britain and the USA, tracing the network of individuals and groups who shaped the moral and political character of the movement. The book argues that the fundamental concept underpinning international solidarity with anti-apartheid movements in South Africa was a moral understanding of political rights that reveals the links between anti-apartheid and older forms of humanitarianism. The book also traces how the key strategies of transnational anti-apartheid movements – campaigns for economic sanctions, organised boycotts, and fundraising in support of movements within South Africa – were established, in principle and often in practice, by the early 1960s.
I loved The Foundations of Anti Apartheid Liberal Humanitarians and, All in all a truly engaging read that I would not hesitate to recommend.
The Foundations of Anti Apartheid Liberal Humanitarians and was an amazing start to understanding the cause of many of my relationship struggles and more importantly, how to begin to fix them. The other book I highly recommend reading.

The Harbinger and The Shepherd

The Harbinger and The Shepherd By Adam Griffith
Humanity’s last war of conquest has ended. The rebellious factions within the mighty Confederation of Inner Systems have been quelled. The scant few independent worlds on the edge of explored space strive to avoid having the Confederation’s gaze turn on them. Peace has spread through the galaxy for the last five years…From a prison world, deep inside the conquered zone of the once great Khirraxian Empire, a new threat emerges. Un-living elemental horrors flood out of dead space with the single-minded goal of destroying humanity. Two great veterans of the last war, the eternal champion of a spirit warrior race and the haggard hero of an accursed people, once again find themselves at the center of a struggle to not only survive, but reclaim the homes once stolen from them.Only an Averial, the herald of the new age, knows the truth about the conflict, the prophecy unfolding, and what is to become of humanity. The champion and the hero must protect her against the rising darkness to ensure the coming of the third age as the galaxy burns under the fires of a new war.
This is one of Adam Griffith stronger books. It is heavy and intense with no lightness of spirit at all. I highly recommend it.
This collection of short stories has been an absolute pleasure to read. But still, plenty to sink your teeth into in this wonderful The Harbinger and The Shepherd

Objects of Time How Things Shape Temporality

Objects of Time How Things Shape Temporality By Kevin K. Birth
This is a book about time, but it is also about much more than time—it is about how the objects we use to think about time shape our thoughts. Because time ties together so many aspects of our lives, this book is able to explore the nexus of objects, cognition, culture, and even biology, and to do so in relationship to globalization. By using ethnographic and historical data, the book argues that we must recognize the cognitive effects of our timekeeping devices, and that we must also recognize that they do not adequately capture many important aspects of time or life.
his outstanding literary skills and fantastic story line with his usual humorous passages, and his wonderful, punchy Objects of Time How Things Shape Temporality goes on my list of all-time favorites.
Great story. Having been involved from a different vantage point I find experiences unique and inspiring.

Childhoods at the Intersection of the Local and the Global

Childhoods at the Intersection of the Local and the Global examines the imposition of the modern Western notion of childhood, which is now deemed as universal, on other cultures and explores how local communities react to these impositions in various ways such as manipulation, outright rejection and acceptance. The book discusses childhoods in different regions of the world and boasts a range of contributors from several academic disciplines such as Sociology, Social Work, Education, Anthropology, Criminology and Human Rights, who are experts on the regions they discuss. The book argues against the notion of a universal childhood and illustrates that different societies around the world have different notions of childhood. This book is recommended reading for students, scholars and practitioners working with children in the Global South as well as internationally.
Now I’m gonna have to go back and read his previous works, and I can’t wait!
Childhoods at the Intersection of the Local and the Global By unknown
Childhoods at the Intersection of the Local and the Global without overdoing it. The detail was great without dragging down the story. I bought it because of the awards it won and I was not disappointed.

Gender and Ventriloquism in Victorian and Neo Victorian Fiction

In what ways does neo-Victorian fiction ‘talk back’ to the nineteenth century? What is at stake in the contemporary interest in ‘re-voicing’ the Victorian era? Gender and Ventriloquism in Victorian and Neo-Victorian Fiction is the first book-length study of the relationship between ventriloquism and gender in nineteenth-century and contemporary literature set in the Victorian period. Offering an insight into the gendered history of ventriloquial utterance, this monograph seeks to re-evaluate the concept of ventriloquism by challenging the power relationship between ‘ventriloquists’ and ‘dummies’. The ventriloquial metaphor articulates an ambivalent exchange between imitation and alteration, tribute and critique, voicing and silencing.  Through detailed analysis of Victorian and neo-Victorian narratives of ventriloquism, Helen Davies locates ventriloquism as a key trope for exploring the politics of contemporary fiction’s dialogues with the nineteenth century.
A terrific read! It keeps you guessing throughout Gender and Ventriloquism in Victorian and Neo Victorian Fiction up until the dramatic twist at the end! A must read
