Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, and with contributions from some of the leading names in the field, Social Work with Adults provides a clear map and guidance to help navigate between the different elements of social work knowledge and practice. Whether a student on an undergraduate degree taking a module on working with adults or a qualified professional wanting to ensure they are proving the very best service they can, this is essential reading. The breadth and depth of coverage makes this text a perfect handbook for students of adult social work.
Social workers are constantly making decisions under pressure. How do policy, law, research and theory influence what they do? This important book provides the answers with a crystal-clear map of the field of social work with children and families. Focused on four major themes - family support work, child protection, adoption and fostering, and residential child care, and reveals in detail all the challenges that social workers face every day. Edited by the highly respected Martin Davies, this authoritative and illuminating book argues that the skill of the social worker can have life-enhancing consequences for some of the most vulnerable people in society. It is an essential investment for students, educators and practitioners alike.
Not many young farmers of the early nineteenth century left diaries that have come down to us, still fewer from Shropshire, at a time when country life continued much as it had since long before the Industrial Revolution. In June 1835, twenty-three-year-old Peter Davis set out from his home in the Teme valley on a mini grand tour. As befitted a son of the soil, his eye lighted first upon the current agricultural scene. Not surprisingly, however, it was the great cities of Liverpool and Edinburgh that came to take more of his attention. The young man's travel diary represents a vivid snapshot of his experiences in passing through the north of England and southern Scotland during the reign of King William IV. Complemented by Peter Davis' narrative, it describes the day-to- day events of his life at home during 1836-7, culminating in his beloved father's death. Before the advent of railways every journey from Peter's home in Burford was significant and through this diary, it has been possible to flesh out the history of a family and imagine ourselves living the lives of past generations. The diaries have been edited by one of their author's great-great grandsons. Martin Davis. He draws comparisons in his introductory essay between the changes affecting the landscape at the time of the diaries and those we face today. This wonderful book will be of interest to Shropshire residents, family historians and all those with a concern and love for country life in pre-industrial times.
This text assumes no knowledge of mathematical logic. Beginning
with a nonstandard construction of the real number system, it leads
students thorough the basic topics of elementary real analysis,
topological spaces, and Hilbert space. Includes nonstandard
treatments of equicontinuity, nonmeasurable sets, and the existence
of Haar measure. 1977 edition.
An anthology of fundamental papers on undecidability and
unsolvability, this classic reference opens with Godel's landmark
1931 paper demonstrating that systems of logic cannot admit proofs
of all true assertions of arithmetic. Subsequent papers by Godel,
Church, Turing, and Post single out the class of recursive
functions as computable by finite algorithms. 1965 edition.

This work focuses on the factors critical to successful injection moulding, including knowledge of plastic materials and how they melt, the importance of mould design, the role of the screw, and the correct use of the controls of an injection moulding machine. It seeks to provide operating personnel with a clear understanding of the basics of injection moulding, resulting in more efficient processing, reduced cycle times, and better part quality with fewer rejects.
This exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of
the man who discovered the solution. The independence of the
continuum hypothesis is the focus of this study by Paul J. Cohen.
It presents not only an accessible technical explanation of the
author's landmark proof but also a fine introduction to
mathematical logic. An emeritus professor of mathematics at
Stanford University, Dr. Cohen won two of the most prestigious
awards in mathematics: in 1964, he was awarded the American
Mathematical Society's Bocher Prize for analysis; and in 1966, he
received the Fields Medal for Logic.
Welcome to the revised and updated version of Astrolocality Astrology. In the 15 years since the original version was published, the world has shrunk and computer software has dramatically improved. It is now easier than ever to access astro-mapping software and so quite literally seek out the best places for holiday, work, relationships - you name it. This revised edition includes the fascinating case histories of Edward Snowden and Ronnie Biggs, and it is also organised in a more reader-friendly format. Enjoy.
Martin Davis is a leader in the field of Astrolocality astrology. His influential first book, Astrolocality Astrology [The Wessex Astrologer, 1999], is the authoritative textbook in the field. This book, 'From Here To There: an astrologer's guide to astromapping', is his latest work on the subject. Written with a deep understanding of the material, Davis presents a masterful portrait of locality astrology today, and its potential for the future. Davis begins this work with a first in astrological literature: recounting the history of the field (telling its story), from ancient Babylonia to modern times. He then introduces specific, essential works of contemporary astrologers who are utilising the techniques in their work. Davis shows how locations of significance and global hotspots can be identified astrologically, bringing the influence of space (where something may happen) into the usual astrological focus on time (when something may happen). This is a critical enlargement of astrological perspective for today's needs, were an understanding of influences around the globe is critical for our very well being.

undergraduates and graduate students majoring in mathematics.
Bartolomeo Fonzio (1447 1513) was a leading literary figure in Florence during the time of Lorenzo de Medici and Machiavelli. A professor of poetry and rhetoric at the University of Florence, he included among his friends and colleagues leading figures such as Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, John Argyropoulos, Cristoforo Landino, and Pietro Soderini. He was one of the principal collaborators in creating the famous humanist library of King Mattyas Corvinus of Hungary. As a scholar and teacher, he devoted himself to the study of classical authors, particularly Valerius Flaccus, Livy, Persius and Juvenal; his studies of Juvenal led to bitter polemics with Poliziano.
Fonzio s letters, translated here for the first time into English, are a window into the world of Renaissance humanism and classical scholarship, and include the famous letter about the discovery in 1485 on the Via Appia of the perfectly preserved body of a Roman girl.
