This important text provides an introduction to the latest debates about racism for students of social work. It addresses why anti-racism matters in social work and how it can be achieved. In the process, it comprehensively examines the conceptual and practice issues in a fast-changing global context, steering a careful path through the increasingly complex language of human rights, multiculturalism, migration, terrorism and inclusion/exclusion. In keeping with other titles in the series, it draws widely on research evidence, applied examples and practice guidelines to support the student reader.
With an Introduction and Notes by Adam Roberts, Royal Holloway, University of London. Homer's great epic describes the many adventures of Odysseus, Greek warrior, as he strives over many years to return to his home island of Ithaca after the Trojan War. His colourful adventures, his endurance, his love for his wife and son have the same power to move and inspire readers today as they did in Archaic Greece, 2800 years ago. This poem has been translated many times over the years, but Chapman's sinewy, gorgeous rendering (1616) stands in a class of its own. Chapman believed himself inspired by the spirit of Homer himself, and matches the breadth and power of the original with a complex and stunning idiom of his own. John Keats expressed his admiration for the resulting work in the famous sonnet, 'On first looking into Chapman's Homer': 'Much have I travelled in the realms of gold...' This new Wordsworth edition of Chapman's Homer contains accessible annotation, and a detailed introduction that places his masterpiece in the context of his own day, and discusses its influences on later poets.
With an Introduction and Notes by Adam Roberts, Royal Holloway, University of London. The product of more than a decade's continuous work (1598-1611), Chapman's translation of Homer's great poem of war is a magnificent testimony to the power of The Iliad. In muscular, onward-rolling verse Chapman retells the story of Achilles, the great warrior, and his terrible wrath before the walls of besieged Troy, and the destruction it wreaks on both Greeks and Trojans. Chapman regarded the translation of this epic, and of Homer's Odyssey (also available in Wordsworth Editions) as his life's work, and dedicated himself to capturing the 'soul' of the poem. Swinburne praised the resulting translation for its 'romantic and sometimes barbaric grandeur, its freshness, strength, and inexhaustible fire', qualities that reflect the grandeur, fire and brutality of the original poem. This new edition includes a critical introduction and extensive notes, rendering Chapman's extraordinary poetic masterpiece accessible to modern readers.
A photographic study of the land that served as the main testing site for American nuclear devices for four decades More nuclear bombs have been detonated in America than in any other country in the world. Between 1951 and 1992, the Nevada National Security Test Site was the primary location for these activities, withstanding more than a thousand nuclear tests that left swaths of the American Southwest resembling the moon. In The Nevada Test Site, renowned American photographer Emmet Gowin (b. 1941) presents staggering aerial photographs of this powerfully evocative place. Gowin remains the only photographer granted official and sustained access to the Nevada Test Site. For this book, he has revisited his original negatives, made in 1996 and 1997, and fully three-quarters of the images featured here have never been published before. These images show blast areas where sand has been transformed to glass, valleys pockmarked with hundreds of craters, trenches that protected soldiers from blasts, areas used to bury radioactive waste, and debris left behind following tests conducted as deep as five thousand feet below the Earth's surface. Together, these stunning, unsettling views unveil environmental travesties on a grand scale. An essay by Gowin delves into the history of his work at the site, including his decade-long efforts to secure entry, the photographic equipment and techniques employed, and what the images mean to him today. With a foreword by photographer and writer Robert Adams, The Nevada Test Site stands as a testament to the harms we inflict on our surroundings, the importance of bearing witness, and the possibilities for aesthetic redemption and a more hopeful future.

This handbook provides guidance for all practising social work professionals, and the staff who support them, on the post-qualifying (PQ) framework for social workers. The book introduces the framework and outlines how post-qualification accreditation and professional registration affect social workers. Covering the theory and practice of social work, the Handbook provides a set of tools and resources that enable social workers to develop their practice while coping with the demands of operational duties. The book looks at working with a range of service user groups such as children, people with learning disabilities and young offenders, as well as examining common issues that social workers may encounter, such as inter-agency work, and issues such as loss and participation. Tackling the increased post-qualification training necessitated by the new framework, this handbook contains resources and materials to help practitioners continue their own professional development. This definitive guide is an invaluable resource for all practising qualified social workers, students and trainers, and educators. Consultant editor: Robert Adams is Professor of Social Work in the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Teesside, UK.

A now classic text on the art, "Why People Photograph" gathers a selection of essays by the great master photographer Robert Adams, tackling such diverse subjects as collectors, humor, teaching, money and dogs. Adams also writes brilliantly on Edward Weston, Paul Strand, Laura Gilpin, Judith Joy Ross, Susan Meiselas, Michael Schmidt, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange and Eugene Atget. The book closes with two essays on "working conditions" in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century American West, and the essay "Two Landscapes." Adams writes: "At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands in front of the camera, to honor what is greater and more interesting than we are."
Robert Adams, one of America's foremost living photographers, has spent decades considering and documenting the landscape of the American West and how it has been altered, disturbed, or destroyed by the hand of man. A professor of English before turning to photography, Adams is also a skilled writer and acute thinker on aesthetic questions. Aperture's previous collections, "Beauty in Photography" and "Why People Photograph", gathered together Adam's essays on a host of subjects: writing, teaching, photography's place in the arts, and reflections on the work of an array of photographers. With its focus on the voice of the artist, "Along Some Rivers" follows in the tradition of these publications, but provides another point of entry into Robert Adam's careful consideration of photography and beyond. A collection of conversations (some previously unpublished) with writers and curators - William McEwan, Rebecca Solnit, Constance Sullivan, and Thomas Weski, among others (including a group of his students) - this publication offers the artist's thoughts on a number of his now legendary projects, including "Cottonwoods" and "What We Bought". A discussion of his recent series chronicling the destruction of Oregon's great forests, "Turning Back", takes us to the present moment. Through these exchanges we learn which filmmakers and painters have influenced his work; why, in Adams's view, Marcel Duchamp has not been a helpful guide for art; how he decides upon titles for his books; and what the term documentary means to him; as well as basic technical questions - which cameras he prefers, how he approaches printing his pictures. Additionally, this publication includes a selection of twenty-eight unpublished landscapes. Together these photographs and conversations provide valuable insight into how this master photographer approaches the medium with an expert level of craft, great intelligence, modesty, and above all, a distinct sense of purpose. "Along Some Rivers" will be a valuable addition to literature on photography.

Based on the authors' twenty-five year experience of consultancy in the public services, this book develops an empowering approach to thinking about and doing consultancy with public services.

The book includes chapters explaining consultancy, on preparing bids, on negotiations and on the importance of assessment and review which are geared towards the needs of those working in public and third sectors, either as or with consultants. It includes a glossary, abbreviations, helpful contacts and websites which are valuable for quick reference and to aid further understanding.
