When Detective Persephone (Persy) Jonas is forced to work with retired criminal psychologist Dr Marge Labuschagne to solve the murder of a suspected sex offender, suspicion and distrust threaten to derail the investigation.

Persy believes the killer is her childhood sweetheart, now turned vicious gangster; Marge is sure the answer lies in the victim's shady past. As the women race against time and their own prejudice to hunt the killer, past and present collide, unearthing long buried secrets and lies. As the hunt intensifies they realise they have more in common than they think and are bound in ways they could never have imagined.

Finally faced with a ruthless killer, it seems that the darkest secrets are the ones they are hiding from themselves.

Queer Fear - Gay Horror Fiction (Paperback): Michael Rowe Queer Fear - Gay Horror Fiction (Paperback)
Michael Rowe
R436 R347 Discovery Miles 3 470 Save R89 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The genre of horror has in the past been the exclusive province of heterosexual writers and themes, stereotypically involving a male antagonist and a female victim. Although the incursions into the field by such writers as Anne Rich and Poppy Z. Brite have largely blurred sexual orientation boundaries, there has never been an anthology of horror stories where the protagonists are clearly gay?until now. "Queer Fear" is a striking and ambitious collection of gay horror fiction by some of today's hottest authors and talented newcomers, covering a wide range of creatures of the night and all manner of urban terrors. These dark and sometimes disturbing tales expand the boundaries of the horror genre, with the sexuality of their protagonists a point of reference for the "horror" of otherness that defines and, at times, divides us. Contributors include: Bram Stoker Award and International Horror Guild Award winner Douglas Clegg, International Horror Guild Award winner Gemma Files, Robert Boyczuk, Michael Thomas Ford, Lewis Gannett, Brian Hodge, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Nancy Kilpatrick, William J. Mann, Michael Marano, David Nickle, Joseph O'Brien, Ron Oliver, David Quinn, Thomas S. Roche, Michael Rowe, Becky N. Southwell, C. Mark Umland, and Edo van Belkom.

Clinical Oncology and Error Reduction fills a gap - the lack of a single volume on medical error in the vast field of cancer care - that has existed since a 1999 Institute of Medicine's report introduced the term `medical error' as a topic for doctors and patients alike. The volume, edited by Antonella Surbone, M.D., a clinical oncologist and Michael Rowe, Ph.D., a medical sociologist, includes chapters written by experts on the topic including physicians, nurses, patients, and advocates, and covers a wide range of topics essential to an understanding of the unique character, challenges, and needed responses to the risk, incidence, and aftermath of medical error in the diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath of treatment for cancer. Clinical Oncology and Error Reduction will serve as the standard for framing the discussion of error in the field for oncologists, epidemiologists, nurses, healthcare administrators, researchers, and scholars. An indispensable handbook for all clinical oncologists, their staff, nurses, and oncology residents and fellows, this book: Contains practical information for immediate clinical application Covers topics such as patient safety, error prevention, quality improvement, errors disclosure and apology, and the impact of errors on patients and doctors Each chapter contains special "take home" points that highlight issues of particular clinical relevance and application Prepared by an expert, multidisciplinary, international team of physicians, nurses, researchers, hospital administrators, bioethicists, patients and patient advocates Dr. Surbone shared with ASCO Connection her insights about patient safety and medical errors and offered a glimpse into the history that led to this new book: https://connection.asco.org/magazine/features/opening-dialogue-about-medical-errors

Guardians of the Buddha's Home - Domestic Religion in Contemporary Jodo Shinshu (Hardcover): Jessica Starling Guardians of the Buddha's Home - Domestic Religion in Contemporary Jodo Shinshu (Hardcover)
Jessica Starling; Series edited by Mark Michael Rowe
R1,554 R1,340 Discovery Miles 13 400 Save R214 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In Guardians of the Buddha's Home, Jessica Starling draws on nearly three years of ethnographic research to provide a comprehensive view of Jodo Shinshu (True Pure Land) temple life with temple wives (known as bomori, or temple guardians) at its center. Throughout, she focuses on ""domestic religion,"" a mode of doing religion centering on more informal religious expression that has received scant attention in the scholarly literature. The Buddhist temple wife's movement back and forth between the main hall and the ""back stage"" of the kitchen and family residence highlights the way religious meaning cannot be confined to canonical texts or to the area of the temple prescribed for formal worship. Starling argues that attaining Buddhist faith (shinjin) is just as likely to occur in response to a simple act of hospitality, a sense of community experienced at an informal temple gathering, or an aesthetic affinity with the temple space that has been carefully maintained by the bomori as it is from hearing the words of a Pure Land sutra intoned by a professional priest. For temple wives, the spiritual practice of button hosha (repayment of the debt owed to the Buddha for one's salvation) finds expression through the conscientious stewardship of temple donations, caring for the Buddha's home and opening it to lay followers, raising the temple's children, and propagating the teachings in the domestic sphere. Engaging with what religious scholars have called the ""turn to affect,"" Starling's work investigates in personal detail how religious dispositions are formed in individual practitioners. The answer, not surprisingly, has as much to do with intimate relationships and quotidian practices as with formal liturgies or scripted sermons.

A Practical Guide to Recovery-Oriented Practice (Paperback): Larry Davidson, Michael Rowe, Janis Tondora, Maria J.... A Practical Guide to Recovery-Oriented Practice (Paperback)
Larry Davidson, Michael Rowe, Janis Tondora, Maria J. O'connell, Martha Lawless
R963 Discovery Miles 9 630 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This book takes a lofty vision of "recovery" and of "a life in the community" for every adult with a serious mental illness promised by the U.S. President's 2003 New Freedom Commission on Mental Health and shows the reader what is entailed in making this vision a reality. Beginning with the historical context of the recovery movement and its recent emergence on the center stage of mental health policy around the world, the authors then clarify various definitions of mental health recovery and address the most common misconceptiosn of recovery held by skeptical practitioners and wroried families. With this framework in place, the authors suggest fundamental principles for recovery-oreinted care, a set of concrete practice guidelines developed in and for the field, a recovery guide model of practice as an alternative to clinical case management, and tools to self-assess the recovery orientation of practices and practitioners. In doing so, this volume represents the first book to go beyond the rhetoric of recovery to its implementation in everyday practice. Much of this work was developed with the State of Connecticut's Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, helping the state to win a #1 ranking in the recent NAMI report card on state mental health authorities. Since initial development of these principles, guidelines, and tools in Connecticut, the authors have become increasingly involved in refining and tailoring this approach for other systems of care around the globe as more and more governments, ministry leaders, system managers, practitioners, and people with serious mental illnesses nad their families embrace the need to transform mental health services to promote recovery and community inclusion. If you've wondered what all of the recent to-do has been about with the notion of "recovery" in mental health, this book explains it. In addition, it gives you an insider's view of the challenges and strategies involved in transforming to recovery and a road map to follow on the first few steps down this exciting, promising, and perhaps long overdue path.

"Queer Fear II "builds on the successes of its predecessor, "Queer Fear," the groundbreaking gay-themed horror anthology that Gothic.net called "the best horror anthology of [the year]," which won the Queer Horror Award, and was a finalist for a Spectrum Award and two Lambda Literary Awards.

This second volume includes among its stories new work by some stars of the previous volume -- International Horror Guild Award winners Gemma Files and Michael Marano, Bram Stoker Award winners David Nickle and Edo van Belkom, and screenwriter Ron Oliver. Science fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer, winner of the Aurora and Nebula Awards, crosses genres to appear alongside newer writers like Bram Stoker Award winner Brett Savory, novelist Sephera Giron, and classic British ghost story author Steve Duffy.

And if that's not enough, "Queer Fear "II will also feature a new, unpublished story by internationally acclaimed horror writer Poppy Z. Brite.

The dark pleasures and anxieties of the "Queer Fear "books have their roots in the nightmarish, viral machinations of AIDS and homophobia, as well as the ghoulish, old-fashioned thrills of confronting things that go bump in the night. "Queer Fear II "will keep you up long past the witching hour.

Michael Rowe is co-editor of "Sons of Darkness "and "Brothers of the Night," and author of the essay collections "Writing Below the Belt "and "Looking for Brothers." A journalist and essayist whose work has appeared in "The Advocate "and "The Globe & Mail," he lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Bonds of the Dead - Temples, Burial, and the Transformation of Contemporary Japanese Buddhism (Paperback, New): Mark Michael... Bonds of the Dead - Temples, Burial, and the Transformation of Contemporary Japanese Buddhism (Paperback, New)
Mark Michael Rowe
R620 Discovery Miles 6 200 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Despite popular images of priests seeking enlightenment in snow-covered mountain temples, the central concern of Japanese Buddhism is death. For that reason, Japanese Buddhism's social and economic base has long been in mortuary services - a base now threatened by public debate over the status, treatment, and location of the dead. "Bonds of the Dead" explores the crisis brought on by this debate and investigates what changing burial forms reveal about the ways temple Buddhism is perceived and propagated in contemporary Japan. Mark Michael Rowe offers a crucial account of how religious, political, social, and economic forces in the twentieth century led to the emergence of new funerary practices in Japan and how, as a result, the care of the dead has become the most fundamental challenge to the continued existence of Japanese temple Buddhism. Far from marking the death of Buddhism in Japan, Rowe argues, funerary Buddhism reveals the tradition at its most vibrant. Combining ethnographic research with doctrinal considerations, this is a fascinating book for anyone interested in Japanese society and religion.

Educating Monks - Minority Buddhism on China's Southwest Border (Hardcover): Thomas A Borchert Educating Monks - Minority Buddhism on China's Southwest Border (Hardcover)
Thomas A Borchert; Series edited by Mark Michael Rowe
R1,368 Discovery Miles 13 680 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Most studies of Buddhist communities tend to be limited to villages, individual temple communities, or a single national community. Buddhist monastics, however, cross a number of these different framings: They are part of local communities, are governed through national legal frameworks, and participate in both national and transnational Buddhist networks. Educating Monks makes visible the ways Buddhist communities are shaped by all of the above-collectively and often simultaneously. Educating Monks examines a minority Buddhist community in Sipsongpanna, a region located on China's southwest border with Myanmar and Laos. Its people, the Dai-lue, are "double minorities": They are recognized by the Chinese state as part of a minority group, and they practice Theravada Buddhism, a minority form within China, where Mahayana Buddhism is the norm. Theravada has long been the primary training ground for Dai-lue men, and since the return of Buddhism to the area in the years following Mao Zedong's death, the Dai-lue have put many of their resources into providing monastic education for their sons. However, the author's analysis of institutional organization within Sipsongpanna, the governance of religion there, and the movements of monks (revealing the "ethnoscapes" that the monks of Sipsongpanna participate in) points to educational contexts that depend not just on local villagers, but also resources from the local (Communist) government and aid form Chinese Mahayana monks and Theravada monks from Thailand and Myanmar. While the Dai-lue monks draw on these various resources for the development of the sangha, they do not share the same agenda and must continually engage in a careful political dance between villagers who want to revive traditional forms of Buddhism, a Chinese state that is at best indifferent to the continuation of Buddhism, and transnational monks that want to import their own modern forms of Buddhism into the region.Based on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with Dai-lue monks in China, Thailand, and Singapore, this ambitious and sophisticated study will find a ready audience among students and scholars of the anthropology of Buddhism, and religion, education, and transnationalism in Southeast and East Asia.

The Elementals (Paperback): Michael McDowell The Elementals (Paperback)
Michael McDowell; Introduction by Michael Rowe
R331 Discovery Miles 3 310 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"The finest writer of paperback originals in America." - Stephen King
"Surely one of the most terrifying novels ever written." - Poppy Z. Brite
"Beyond any trace of doubt, one of the best writers of horror in this or any other country." - Peter Straub
"Readers of weak constitution should beware " - "Publishers Weekly"
"McDowell has a flair for the gruesome." - "Washington Post"
After a bizarre and disturbing incident at the funeral of matriarch Marian Savage, the McCray and Savage families look forward to a restful and relaxing summer at Beldame, on Alabama's Gulf Coast, where three Victorian houses loom over the shimmering beach. Two of the houses are habitable, while the third is slowly and mysteriously being buried beneath an enormous dune of blindingly white sand. But though long uninhabited, the third house is not empty. Inside, something deadly lies in wait. Something that has terrified Dauphin Savage and Luker McCray since they were boys and which still haunts their nightmares. Something horrific that may be responsible for several terrible and unexplained deaths years earlier - and is now ready to kill again . . .
A haunted house story unlike any other, Michael McDowell's "The Elementals" (1981) was one of the finest novels to come out of the horror publishing explosion of the 1970s and '80s. Though best known for his screenplays for Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas," McDowell is now being rediscovered as one of the best modern horror writers and a master of Southern Gothic literature. This edition of McDowell's masterpiece of terror features a new introduction by award-winning horror author Michael Rowe. McDowell's first novel, the grisly and darkly comic "The Amulet" (1979), is also available from Valancourt Books.

From the savage murder of a eighteen-year-old street youth far from home, to the author's search for the meaning of chosen family on the rust colored beaches of Prince Edward Island, Looking For Brothers presents a gay man's unique and captivating view of Canada- a native son's look at the culture and citizens who have shaped our consciousness. Spanning an eleven year period, these essays by award-winning journalist Michael Rowe examine, with a startling blend of objectivity and subjectivity, the places that society has allocated to gay men, and the places gay men have claimed for themselves: physically, emotionally, sexually, and geographically. They unflinchingly explore the carved in stone truisms cherished both by straight and gay society, in an attempt to dismantle the limiting stereotypes each group holds of themselves and the other, and to find the place where the two cultures meet. On themes including gay men in sports and the military; same-sex marriage; narcissism and the cult of male beauty; AIDS and the euthanasia debate; pornography and the limits of censorship; family, chosen and otherwise; the questionable merits of the ghetto; and a yeasty celebration of liking straight men; Looking For Brothers brings together for the first time Rowe's most acclaimed gay-themed writing. With this collection, Michael Rowe secures his position as one of Canada's most thoughtful and provocative jounalist-essayists, and one of our foremost gay writers.

The Racialisation of Disorder in Twentieth Century Britain (Hardcover, New Ed): Michael Rowe The Racialisation of Disorder in Twentieth Century Britain (Hardcover, New Ed)
Michael Rowe
R2,207 Discovery Miles 22 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book develops the concept of racialisation. It argues that a full understanding of racialized discourse must pay attention to both the particular local circumstances in which they appear, and well-established themes which have unfolded over time. An important aspect of the study is the examination of other discourses with which racialized ideas have co-joined, reflecting the way in which notions of 'race' are socially constructed. The final part of the book returns to debates of the 1980's and argues that the racialisation of unrest in that decade was closely intertwined with conservative perspectives which sought to deny socio-economic causes in favour of explanations based upon the supposed cultural or personal proclivities of those involved.

Accountability of Policing provides a contemporary and wide-ranging examination of the accountability and governance of `police' and `policing'. Debates about `who guards the guards' are among the oldest and most protracted in the history of democracy, but over the last decade we have witnessed important changes in how policing and security agencies are governed, regulated and held to account. Against a backdrop of increasing complexity in the local, national and transnational landscapes of `policing', political, legal, administrative and technological developments have served to alter regimes of accountability. The extent and pace of these changes raises a pressing need for ongoing academic research, analysis and debate. Bringing together contributions from a range of leading scholars, this book offers an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the shifting themes of accountability within policing. The contributions explore questions of accountability across a range of dimensions, including those `individuals' and `institutions' responsible for its delivery, within and between the `public' and `private' sectors, and at `local', `national' and `transnational' scales of jurisdiction. They also engage with the concept of `accountability' in a broad sense, bringing to the surface the various meanings that have become associated with it and demonstrating how it is invoked and interpreted in different contexts. Accountability of Policing is essential reading for academics and students involved in the study of policing, criminal justice and criminology and will also be of great interest to practitioners and policymakers.
