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. Contributor: Maria Parry, Senior Lecturer Palliative Care, University of Glamorgan, UK

OUP Oxford Marilynn Richtarik - Stewart Parker: A Life OUP Oxford Marilynn Richtarik - Stewart Parker: A Life

Born in Belfast during World War II, raised in a working-class Protestant family, and educated on scholarship at Queen's University, writer Stewart Parker's story is in many ways the story of his generation. Other aspects of his personal history, though, such as the amputation of his left leg at age 19, helped to create an extraordinarily perceptive observer and commentator. Steeped in American popular culture as a child and young adult, he spent five years teaching in the United States before returning to Belfast in August 1969, the same week British troops responded to sectarian disturbances there. Parker had developed a sense of writing as a form of political action in the highly charged atmosphere of the US in the late 1960s, which he applied in many and varied capacities throughout the worst years of the Troubles to express his own socialist and secular vision of Northern Irish potential. As a young aspiring poet and novelist, he supported himself with free-lance work that brought him into contact with institutions ranging from BBC Northern Ireland to the Irish Times (for which he wrote personal columns and the music review feature High Pop) and from the Queen's University Extramural Department to Long Kesh internment camp (where his creative writing students included Gerry Adams). It is as a playwright, however, that Parker earned a permanent spot in the literary canon with drama that encapsulates his experience of Northern Ireland in the 1970s. Marilynn Richtarik's Stewart Parker: A Life illuminates the genesis, development, and meaning of such classic plays as Spokesong, Northern Star, and Pentecost - works that continue to shed light on the North's past, present, and future - in the context of Parker's life and times. Meticulously researched and engagingly written, this critical biography rewards general readers and specialists alike.

Palgrave Macmillan Dr Wendy Fitzgibbon - Probation and Social Work on Trial: Violent Offenders and Child Abusers Palgrave Macmillan Dr Wendy Fitzgibbon - Probation and Social Work on Trial: Violent Offenders and Child Abusers

The Baby Peter and Dano Sonnex incidents were high profile cases in which two key public services, namely child protection and probation, both failed in their tasks of protection of the victims and the public. In this book the author graphically describes media and political reactions and then proceeds to analyze the common problems both social work and probation practice face under conditions of economic recession and drastic reductions in funding. This new paperback version comes with a foreword from Shadd Maruna, Professor of Justice and Human Development and Director of the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Queen's University, Belfast, UK.
