For 100 years, Wood’s Homes has offered a lifeline to children and their families who have nowhere else to turn. A multiservice, non-profit children’s mental health organization based in Calgary, Wood’s Homes serves communities throughout Alberta and in the Northwest Territories. In honour of the 100th anniversary of Wood’s Homes in 2014, this collection of 100 stories celebrates the deep and lasting impact the organization has had on those who have lived and worked there. The stories—sometimes quirky, sometimes raw, but always coming from the heart—also reveal the dramatic changes in the needs of young people and their communities over the last century.

Neue Perspektiven auf die Geschichte der Menschenrechte, der deutsch-israelischen Beziehungen und des Kalten Krieges. Carole Fink zählt seit Jahren zu den produktivsten und profiliertesten Köpfen der International History. Dass diese Teildisziplin der Geschichtswissenschaft weit mehr bieten kann als nüchterne Diplomatiegeschichte, zeigt die Autorin einmal mehr in den innovativen und quellengesättigten Beiträgen dieses Bandes: Wie haben die mannigfaltigen turns der Geschichts- und Kulturwissenschaften das Profil und die Perspektiven der International History in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten verändert? Wie funktionierte der vom Völkerbund installierte Minderheitenschutz in einer Welt, in der das Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Nationalstaaten weiterhin fast uneingeschränkte Priorität genoss? Mit welchen politischen Maßnahmen unterminierten Großbritannien und Australien Ende der dreißiger Jahre die internationalen Bemühungen um sichere Zufluchtsorte für die europäischen Juden? Welche politischen und persönlichen Faktoren prägten Günter Grass ́ Israelreise im März 1967, die als Vorbote eines fundamentalen Wandels der deutsch-israelischen Beziehungen gelesen werden kann? In einem abschließenden Gespräch reflektiert Carole Fink über ihre eigene Wissenschaftssozialisation und den Wandel ihres Fachs seit den sechziger Jahren.

Radical Parliamentarians and the English Civil War charts the way the English civil war of the 1640s mutated into a revolution, in turn paving the way for the later execution of King Charles I and the abolition of the monarchy. Focusing on parliament's most militant supporters, David Como reconstructs the origins and nature of the most radical forms of political and religious agitation that erupted during the war, tracing the process by which these forms gradually spread and gained broader acceptance. Drawing on a wide range of manuscript and print sources, the study situates these developments within a revised narrative of the period, revealing the emergence of new practices and structures for the conduct of politics. In the process, the book illuminates the eruption of many of the period's strikingly novel intellectual currents, including assumptions and practices we today associate with western representative democracy; notions of retained natural rights, religious toleration, freedom of the press, and freedom from arbitrary imprisonment. The study also chronicles the way that civil war shattered English protestantism - leaving behind myriad competing groupings, including congregationalists, baptists, antinomians, and others - while examining the relationship between this religious fragmentation and political change. It traces the gradual appearance of openly anti-monarchical, republican sentiment among parliament's supporters. Radical Parliamentarians and the English Civil War provides a new history of the English civil war, enhancing our understanding of the dramatic events of the 1640s, and shedding light on the long-term political and religious consequences of the conflict.

A brand new comedy by the writer of the hit play Stitching, published to tie in with the Royal Court's Christmas production from November 2002 Constables Blunt and Gobbel have one last duty to fulfil before they can finish their Christmas eve shift; telling the old couple at No. 58 some terrible news. But what if the shock is too much for them? Blunt and Gobbel didn't join up in order to ruin people's lives. Maybe they'd be happier not knowing. And maybe it would all be much easier if the two constables weren't also stuck in the middle of a full-scale village lynch-mob.
