              Visit some of the most remote and beautiful places of south and west Australia in Green Nomads Wild Places, Bob Brown and partner Paul Thomas's three-month adventure across Australia. This is a photographic and written record of a journey that took them first by yacht and then by... road along the coasts and by-ways of southern Australia. They floated in hidden harbours and on ancient rivers, climbed over age-old rock formations, and camped at isolated Bush Heritage Australia properties, revelling in the beauty of the natural universe. Bob Brown and Paul Thomas remind us how extraordinary and diverse is our natural world. Green Nomads Wild Places is a superb companion to Green Nomads, the book of their first 19 000 kilometre journey inland through eastern Australia, which followed Bob's retirement after 16 years in the Senate. Praise for Bob and Paul's previous book, Green Nomads: GreenNomadscan be compared with publications by other stalwart defenders of the world's ecological systems such as David Attenborough and the Prince of Wales. - Clyde Selby, Mercury Green Nomads is ... pretty much all that you could imagine: glorious - Thuy On, Sunday Age

              Currently, both the status quo of public education and the No Excuses Reform policies are identical. The reform offers a popular and compelling narrative based on the meritocracy and rugged individualism myths that are supposed to define American idealism. This volume will refute... this ideology by proposing Social Context Reform, a term coined by Paul Thomas which argues for educational change within a larger plan to reform social inequity-such as access to health care, food, higher employment, better wages and job security. Since the accountability era in the early 1980s, policy, public discourse, media coverage, and scholarly works have focused primarily on reforming schools themselves. Here, the evidence that school-only reform does not work is combined with a bold argument to expand the discourse and policy surrounding education reform to include how social, school, and classroom reform must work in unison to achieve goals of democracy, equity, and opportunity both in and through public education. This volume will include a wide variety of essays from leading critical scholars addressing the complex elements of social context reform, all of which address the need to re-conceptualize accountability and to seek equity and opportunity in social and education reform.

              Maori cop Tito Ihaka has been dragged back from exile - and Christopher Lilywhite, whom Ihaka suspected was behind his wife's death, wants to see him. Lilywhite confesses that he had his wife murdered, but he dealt with the hit-man at arm's length so has no idea who he is. In qui...ck succession Lilywhite and another potential source of information are murdered. Ihaka's old rival Detective Inspector Tony Charlton takes control of the case but with more corpses turning up and Auckland Central stretched to breaking point, Ihaka realises that he's hunting a faceless and prolific hit-man. Or is the hit-man hunting him?

              Collaborating for Health (Hardback)

              Health care is increasingly under pressure. Budget crises are making collaboration and smart thinking essential, while increasing numbers of people with multiple long-term conditions make specialist models of health care increasingly inefficient - patients too often go from one s...pecialist to another, duplicating effort and paying too little attention to the bigger picture of their health. Collaborating for Health outlines a solution: community-oriented integrated care and health promotion. Designed to prevent the problems of fragmented care, this approach focuses on building teams, networks and communities for health and care at local level, where it is easier to see the range of factors that affect people's health. With the emphasis on partnership-working between primary care, public health and others, it allows clusters of general practices to share the work of integrating efforts for care and health improvement, and for non-medical organisations to lead parallel initiatives for health and care. Introducing both horizontal and vertical integration, Thomas presents ways to develop community-oriented integrated care in a sustainable way, and how to practice the skills in small ways before you have to perform on a big stage. This guide is for anyone interested in how multidisciplinary primary care teams can orchestrate most aspects of health and care at local level, with timely specialist input.
