*** THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER *** 'Destined to be a classic' Nouriel Roubini 'Brilliant, powerful and hopeful' Philippa Perry 'Explosive, timely and urgent' Daily Telegraph Even before a global pandemic introduced us to terms like social distancing, loneliness was already becoming the defining condition of the twenty-first century. But it's also one we have the power to reverse. Combining a decade of research with first-hand reporting, Noreena Hertz takes us from a 'how to communicate in real life' class for smartphone-addicted university students to bouncy castles at Belgian far-right gatherings, from paying for cuddles in the U.S. to nursing home residents knitting bonnets for their robot caregivers in Japan. The Lonely Century explores how our increasing dependence on technology, radical changes to the workplace and decades of policies that have placed self-interest above the collective good are damaging our communities and making us more isolated than ever before. With bold solutions for us as individuals as well as for businesses and governments, Noreena Hertz offers a hopeful and empowering vision for ow to heal our fractured world and come together again.

Play for Health Across the Lifespan uses case studies to explore the impact of play and creativity on health and wellbeing throughout the lifecycle. While play at the start of life influences future development, the authors show play also has a role in improving prospects for health and wellbeing in adulthood and later life. A relational approach to health and wellbeing emphasizes the dynamic, mutually influential relationship between individual development and the changing contexts of our lives. Our personal play history is one feature of this dynamic process, and this book explores how the experience of play throughout the life course sculpts and resculpts the shape of our lives: our physical health, our mental wellbeing, and our relationship to the people and the world around us. Storytelling has been used since the beginning of time to communicate important life lessons in an engaging way. Taking inspiration from Shakespeare’s ‘Seven Ages of Man’, the book uses a case-story approach to differentiate the stages of development and to present evidence for how play and playful experiences impact on health and wellbeing from birth to the end of life in the context of temporal and situational change. Each chapter in Play for Health Across the Lifespan introduces relevant evidence-based research on play and health, before presenting several narrative ‘case stories’, which illustrate the application of play theory and the neuroscience of play as they relate to each life stage. With contributions from specialists in health and education, community organizations and the creative and performing arts, this book will appeal to academics, students, and practitioners who are interested in exploring the role of play in addressing contemporary challenges to our physical, mental, and social health.

Written by Dave Whitaker, The Kindness Principle: Making relational behaviour management work in schools advocates a behaviour management approach rooted in values, acceptance and a genuine understanding of children's behaviour. In an education system that too often reaches for the carrot-and-stick approach to dealing with poor pupil behaviour, an approach built on kindness and compassion might just provide the cure. The Kindness Principle begins with the idea that relationships should be at the heart of behaviour management and culture, and sets out the ways in which the adoption of relational approaches can help create safer and happier schools. Schools where all staff and learners are valued and understood, where expectations and standards are high, and where kindness and acceptance matter. Dave Whitaker explores why it is so important to understand children - offering techniques and advice on how to work effectively with all children (even the most challenging and troubled ones) without resorting to zero-tolerance, no-excuses and consequence-driven practices. Dave also shares a wealth of real-life experiences from some of the most challenging schools in the country, along with research-informed insights that will help teachers understand children's behaviour in a new light. To this end he provides a wealth of guidance to help develop effective practice and learn from people who have actually walked the walk and don't just talk the talk. Furthermore, the topics covered in the book include: restorative approaches, unconditional positive regard, building personal resilience, structures and routines, and the ins and outs of rewards and sanctions. Suitable for teachers, school leaders and anyone working with children.

In this stirring sequel to “Through Fear and Trembling,” Athena Arnold becomes the new President of the United States in the wake of a hotly disputed election. Veiled in her rhetoric, but undeniable by her actions is a determination to stamp out all vestiges of biblical Christian faith in America, which she regards as toxic to society. Her aim instead is to force America into the global socialist New World Order. William Walter Cunningham, her head of the Bureau of Government Affairs in New Washington State, dispatches the young, arrogant Ahmad Salazar to bring to heel the citizens of Green Valley, a small, God-fearing, mid-western community. Salazar ruthlessly forces his “control and compliance” policy on its citizens. Local Christian pastors Brandon Mills of the Green Valley Community Church and Roland Spafford of the Harvest Temple push back, setting up a clash between two diametrically opposed and irreconcilable worldviews. Pastor Brandon’s rebellious teenage daughter Patricia finds herself pregnant out of wedlock, with the local family planning clinic determined to force her into an unwanted abortion. The resulting chain of events causes some believers to flee to the Dell, a hidden refuge deep in a dense forest northwest of Green Valley. Pastor Brandon is forcibly separated from his ailing wife Lisa and sent to the “Rough Acres Reeducation and Rehabilitation Camp,” a gulag in North Dakota that specializes in forcing hard cases into conformity with the edicts of the New World Order. Courage, cowardice, treachery, heartbreak, healing, romance, and the sovereign hand of God; “The Gulag and the Dell” is a powerful story of redemption and of the ultimate victory of God and His people over the forces of evil.
“I'm sorry.” “Thank you, Patricia. I'm sorry too, but God gives grace.” She took Patricia's hand. “Your parents will be hurt ... They'll be glad to see you. ... Her father had read it to her from a children's book when she was little.
