This book will have hilarious answers to your burning questions about all kinds of teachers, f...rom the old and nasty ones to the smelly and huge ones, and the extraordinary things they do when they're not in the classroom, like roll around on the carpet, eat a humongous cake, and cast spells. This snot-inducingly funny book will also function as a trusty survival guide to school years. Learn why you should carry an emergency banana with you at all times, how to fart in class silently without pooing yourself, and how to catapult yourself to school by building a medieval style trebuchet in your back garden! But be warned - this is NOT a normal book. You can read it forwards, backwards, sideways, and in approximately 861,000 different ways in between. Whichever way you read it, look no further for fantastic real-life teacher facts, incredibly funny illustrations, imaginary stories, and an impossibly silly read!

              Uncover the funny life of cats, dogs, horses, hamsters and everything else inbetween (and some things that have nothing to do with pets but are still funny) - according to James Campbell, comedian extraordinaire. You should know that this is NOT a normal book. 1) You read a norma...l book by starting on page one and reading to the end. This book isn't like that. You can read it forwards, backwards, sideways, and in approximately 861,000 different ways inbetween. 2) This is not a fact book. Well, it is a bit. But it's also a story. This is a book with outrageous facts, hilarious jokes, and brilliant stories about pets, the author, and all sorts of other things - like how cats are afraid of cucumbers. 3) WARNING: Anything you think you might have learned from this book might not be very accurate so should not be used in a school project or as part of homework. Unless of course, you are made of stardust and are as brave as sunshine. This book answers all the big questions, like: do sausage dogs eat sausages? Why has my cat done a poo-poo behind my wardrobe? And, how can I persuade my parents to get me a pet? For real-life pet facts, ridiculously funny illustrations, imaginary stories, and a hilarious read, read on!

              The histories of prisons, transportation, and police are well-established fields of enquiry. In recent years scholars have begun to recognise the subjects' global dimensions and the potential for comparative studies to provide new critical insights. This book offers original and ...critical essays from leading scholars working on crime, police, and prisons across the continents of Asia, the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Drawing on a range of disciplinary tools and critical analyses, and utilising a comparative transnational lens, Transnational Penal Cultures explores interdisciplinary connections between, and challenges to traditional western democratic historiographies, as well as categorisations of offenders, police and ex-offenders. --

              Focusing on three key stages of the criminal justice process, discipline, punishment and desistance, and incorporating case studies from Asia, the Americas, Europe, Africa and Australia, the thirteen chapters in this collection are based on exciting new research that explores the... evolution and adaptation of criminal justice and penal systems, largely from the early nineteenth century to the present. They range across the disciplinary boundaries of History, Criminology, Law and Penology. Journeying into and unlocking different national and international penal archives, and drawing on diverse analytical approaches, the chapters forge new connections between historical and contemporary issues in crime, prisons, policing and penal cultures, and challenge traditional Western democratic historiographies of crime and punishment and categorisations of offenders, police and ex-offenders. The individual chapters provide new perspectives on race, gender, class, urban space, surveillance, policing, prisonisation and defiance, and will be essential reading for academics and students engaged in the study of criminal justice, law, police, transportation, slavery, offenders and desistance from crime.
