McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict) McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict)

The transformation of conflict and post-conflict societies through transitional justice is now recognized as vital to the process of peace-building, with mechanisms such as trials, truth commissions, and apologies seen as essential for effecting societal change. It is widely argued that 'reconciliation' is a key element of this process, yet both scholars and practitioners are unclear as to what the concept is or how the process works. "Reconciliation(s)" considers the definition of the concept of reconciliation itself, focusing on the definitional dialogue that arises from the attempts to situate reconciliation within a theoretical and analytical framework. Contributing authors champion competing definitions, but all agree that it plays an important role in building relationships of trust and cohesion. The essays in this book also consider the nature and utility of reconciliation in a number of contexts, evaluating both its function and efficacy. A comprehensive evaluation of reconciliation as a means of bringing about social healing, "Reconciliation(s)" will be of interest to scholars from a broad range of disciplines. The contributors include Caitlin Donnelly (Queen's Belfast), Stephanus Du Toit (Institute for Justice and Reconciliation), Samar El-Masri (Prince Sultan University, Riyadh), Nicholas Frayling (Dean, Chichester Cathedral), Mark Freeman (International Center for Transitional Justice), Trudy Govier (Lethbridge), Brandon Hamber (Ulster), Joanne Hughes (Queen's Belfast), Anita Isaacs (Haverford), Grainne Kelly (INCORE, University of Ulster), Rosemary Nagy (Nipissing), Veerle Opgenhaffen (International Center for Transitional Justice), Valerie Perry (OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina), Joanna R. Quinn (Western), and Laurence Thomas (Syracuse).

Open University Press Parsons - Principles and Practice of Managing Pain: A Guide for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals Open University Press Parsons - Principles and Practice of Managing Pain: A Guide for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals

"I found this book extremely easy to read. It does much more than tell us what pain is and how to limit or prevent it. It explains the ethical aspects of pain management and makes us think about why and how we should manage patients' pain, and what our rights and duties are in pain management. The book takes us from an explanation of pain, through pain assessment, pharmacology and management, and informs us how to plan for pain management, rather than only focussing on reactive pain control. It also looks at pain from the patient's perspective and teaches us how to assess pain using a variety of recognised tools ...I will use this book again and again, and would recommend it to fellow students who are placed on wards where pain management and planning is required." Conor Hamilton, Student Nurse, Queens University Belfast, UK This practical introductory text provides an accessible guide to pain and how it affects patients and care giving. It considers: Different pain types including acute, chronic and palliative Assessing pain Treatment and pharmacology of pain control Challenging situations and dilemmas Communicating with patients in pain Ethical and legal aspects of treating painThe book also considers the experience of pain from the patients' perspective, to help healthcare students better understand the needs of patients who are in pain and how they can improve the care they give. Case studies, tools for decision making, insights on patient experiences and reflective exercises provide opportunities for you to reflect upon your own practice and to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Principles and Practice of Managing Pain is ideal for students preparing to practice in a health care environment.

Penguin Classics Robert Graves - Good-bye to All That: An Autobiography (Penguin Modern Classics) Penguin Classics Robert Graves - Good-bye to All That: An Autobiography (Penguin Modern Classics)

"There was no patriotism in the trenches. It was too remote a sentiment, and rejected as fit only for civilians. A new arrival who talked patriotism would soon be told to cut it out. As Blighty, Great Britain was a quiet, easy place to get back to out of the present foreign misery, but as a nation it was nothing." This is the original version of Robert Graves' intense memoir of the First World War, restoring this raw, emotionally truthful, darkly comic work to the way it was first written, by a young man still reeling from the trenches. "We see the dark heart of the book even more clearly, and hear it beating even more loudly, in this original edition than we do in the comparatively careful and considered terms of the later one' Andrew Motion 'One of the most candid self-portraits, warts and all, ever painted". (TLS). Robert Graves was born in 1895 in Wimbledon. He went from school to the First World War, where he became a captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and was seriously wounded at the Battle of the Somme. He wrote his autobiography, Goodbye to All That, in 1929, and it was soon established as a modern classic. He died on 7 December 1985 in Majorca, his home since 1929.Andrew Motion's most recent collection of poetry is The Cinder Path. He was poet laureate from 1999 to 2009 and is now Professor of Creative Writing at Royal Holloway, University of London. Fran Brearton is Professor of Modern Poetry at Queen's University Belfast and author of The Great War in Irish Poetry.

OUP Oxford Boitani - The European Tragedy of Troilus OUP Oxford Boitani - The European Tragedy of Troilus

This book, the first to be devoted to the story of Troilus and Cressida as it develops through the ages and in various literatures, is the joint effort of an international team of scholars. It studies a myth which represents an important aspect of the European imagination: the way in which the problems of love and death are faced in narrative, poetry, drama, and opera. From the Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans the story passes into the hands of artists such as Benoit de Sainte Maure, Boccaccio, Chaucer, Henryson, Shakespeare, and Dryden, and is finally resurrected in the twentieth century in America, England, and Germany. This book analyses the changes - both literary and more broadly imaginative - that minor and major writers have introduced, and thus constitutes the product of a truly intertextual and comparative approach. While devoting attention to all these authors and their works, the volume concentrates on the treatment of the theme in Chaucer and Shakespeare and is therefore aimed at students of English and Comparative Literature as well as those general readers who are interested in the history of European culture.
