Elson clearly highlights the structural problems currently facing the voluntary sector by examining the historical and institutional forces that have driven relationships between governments and non-profits. He provides compelling evidence that critical junctures occur as a consequence of developments both incremental and dramatic. High Ideals and Noble Intentions provides a blueprint for change that will be significant to the future development of the voluntary sector in Canada.' James J. Rice, School of Social Work, McMaster University `High Ideals and Noble Intentions fills a void in the current literature on Canada's non-profits by providing a comprehensive political history of the sector within a book-length analytical framework. Peter R. Elson's thorough understanding of voluntary institutions and national policy allows him to build a logical, evidentiary argument. The questions he raises, presented accessibly and engagingly, will have widespread policy appeal.' Jacquelyn Scott, Shannon School of Business, Cape Breton University

Noble Intentions is a story about interventions; it's about when to help and when to butt out, leaving problems that you can't fix to the professionals. Vuso Sithole is a modern family man who learns his lesson about when to bow out ... the hard way. He has high hopes and ideals, a white-collared kind of guy, earning less than his wife; but, money aside, he aims to be the best husband and father he can be, and the best educator. Being the -best teacher- becomes a challenge, for the school at which he teaches is plagued by drug-dealers. And so his learners suffer. He attempts to intervene, and to free his school form dealers and illegal substance abuse, but without fully knowing what he's dealing with or getting himself into. The ominous underground network webs in on him, until he has to make a choice - to feel or to think. -- page 4 of cover.

On the surface, Riverview High School looks like the post-racial ideal. Serving an enviably affluent, diverse, and liberal district, the school is well-funded, its teachers are well-trained, and many of its students are high-achieving. Yet Riverview has not escaped the same unrelenting question that plagues schools throughout America: why is it that even when all of the circumstances seem right, black and Latina/o students continue to lag behind their peers? Through five years' worth of interviews and data-gathering at Riverview, Amanda Lewis and John Diamond have created a powerful and illuminating study of how the racial achievement gap continues to afflict American schools more than fifty years after the formal dismantling of segregation. As students progress from elementary school to middle school to high school, their level of academic achievement increasingly tracks along racial lines, with white and Asian students maintaining higher GPAs and standardized testing scores, taking more advanced classes, and attaining better college admission results than their black and Latina/o counterparts. Most research to date has focused on the role of poverty, family stability, and other external influences in explaining poor performance at school, especially in urban contexts. Diamond and Lewis instead situate their research in a suburban school, and look at what factors within the school itself could be causing the disparity. Most crucially, they challenge many common explanations of the "racial achievement gap," exploring what race actually means in this situation, and how it matters. Diamond and Lewis' research brings clarity and data into a debate that is too often dominated by stereotyping, race-baiting, and demagoguery. An in-depth study with far-reaching consequences, Despite the Best Intentions revolutionizes our understanding of both the knotty problem of academic disparities and the larger question of the color line in American society.

This text is unique in its application of counselling principles to the specific problems of the older person. The book seeks to demystify counselling and present the counseller as 'carer and friend', not therapist and psychoanalyst. Counselling Older People 2/e has been thoroughly revised and updated and takes into account the changes in practice. There is now a more practical bias with many case studies and examples from a wide cross-section of ethnic groups. The text addresses the social, psychological and practical concerns of older people, and looks at how counselling can be used to help.

The gods who created this world have abandoned it. In their mercy, however, they chained the rogue god—and the monstrous creatures he created to plague mortalkind—in the vast and inhospitable wasteland of the Bourne. The magical Veil that contains them has protected humankind for millennia and the monsters are little more than tales told to frighten children. But the Veil has become weak and creatures of Nightmare have come through. To fight them, the races of men must form a great alliance to try and stop the creatures. But there is dissent. One king won't answer the call, his pride blinding him even to the poison in his own court. Another would see Convocation fail for his own political advantage. And still others believe Convocation is not enough. Some turn to the talents of the Sheason, who can shape the very essence of the world to their will. But their order is divided, on the brink of collapse. Tahn Junell remembers friends who despaired in a place left barren by war. One of the few who have actually faced the unspeakable horde in battle, Tahn sees something else at work and wonders about the nature of the creatures on the other side of the Veil. He chooses to go to a place of his youth, a place of science, daring to think he can find a way to prevent slaughter, prevent war. And his choices may reshape a world . . . . The second title in the Vault of Heaven series, Peter Orullian's Trial of Intentions is a mesmerizing fantasy epic that turns the conventions of the genre on its head At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
