            Youth Sociology (Hardback, 1st ed. 2020)

            By France, Alan; Coffey, Julia; Roberts, Steven; Waite, Catherine

            Falling somewhere between childhood and adulthood, 'Youth' is a key period of transition. It can be difficult to define and make sense of this period in one's life. However it is categorised, young people face a number of challenges and issues growing up in today's world. From th...e pressures created by social media to the increasing precarity of employment, the major social, cultural and economic developments of our time are each impacting this period of the lifecourse in myriad ways. Youth Sociology helps readers to understand how such changes factor into the experience of being young today, and illuminates the realities of the world in which young people live. Embedding perspectives and insights from a wide range of disciplines beyond sociology, this authoritative new textbook will be incredibly useful for all students of youth.

            An environmental expert unleashes a scientific, fact-based broadside against eco-alarmism and the excesses of the left, arguing that climate change and other environmental problems are real but not apocalyptic and require practical, not radical, solutions. Many environmentalists ...claim the world as we know it will soon come to an end unless we radically change how we live our lives. They demand we stop eating meat, ban plastics, and significantly reduce how much we drive and fly. Climate change is real, says Michael Shellenberger in Apocalypse Never, but it's not the end of the world. It is not even our most serious environmental problem. Most environmental trends, including population, pollution, and resource use, are all going in the right direction. The left profits from hyping climate change as apocalypse while opposing obvious solutions. Schemes like The Green New Deal would transfer wealth to well-connected elites, raise energy costs, and hurt wildlife. Poverty, not prosperity, is the real enemy of the environment. We use can produce more food using less land and water, move from wood to coal to natural gas to nuclear, and safely capture and contain plastic waste. But all of that will require standing up to the eco-alarmism in the way of environmental protection.

            NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff, winner of the 2019 Walter Cronkite Award for his reporting on the child separation crisis, delivers a profoundly personal and moving report from the border and beyond, revealing the wrenching human story behind one of the most dist...urbing passages of modern American history. Donald Trump's most infamous decision as president, to systematically separate thousands of migrant families at the border, was in effect for months before most Americans saw the living conditions of the children in custody at the epicenter of the policy. NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff was among the first journalists to expose the truth of what their lives were like on the inside after seeing them firsthand. His widely shared reports in June 2018 ignited public scrutiny that contributed to the President reversing his own policy by Executive Order, and earned Soboroff the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Broadcast Journalism and the 2019 Hillman Prize for Broadcast Journalism. In Separated, Soboroff weaves together his own experience unexpectedly covering this national issue with other key figures in the drama he met along the way, including feuding administration officials responsible for tearing apart and then reuniting families, and the parents and children who were caught in the middle. He reveals new and exclusive details of how the policy was carried out, and how its affects are still being felt. Today, there is still not a full accounting of the total number of children the President ripped away from their parents. The exact number may never be known, only that it is in the thousands. Now the President is doubling down on draconian immigration policies, including threatening to hold migrant families indefinitely and making tens of thousands applying for asylum wait in some of Mexico's most dangerous cities. Separated is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how Trump and his administration were able to

            Reserve Bank Governor Alan Bollard's bestselling Crisis was a first-hand account of the global financial meltdown. Two years on, this new edition of Crisis brings the story up to date. Crisis takes readers from the overheated markets of 2007, through the collapse of investment ba...nks and stressful times for numerous economies in 2008/9, and on to a fragile recovery around the world since 2010. In two new chapters for this edition, Bollard reveals how New Zealand is grappling with the impact of the US debt ceiling crisis, the current sovereign debt crises in Europe and the devastating effects of the Christchurch earthquakes. Bad news on the Reuters screen, emergency meetings and urgent decisions, making sure Christchurch has enough cash and ATMs: Crisis captures the drama of events as politicians, bankers and government officials struggle to deal with the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Dr Alan Bollard has been governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand since 2002. Author of a number of books, he has previously been Secretary to the Treasury, Chair of the Commerce Commission and Director of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research. Sarah Gaitanos is an independent writer and oral historian.
