Remaking Social Work with Children and Families
Paul Michael Garrett
0415298369
Sept 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Remaking Social Work with Children and Families provides a sustained examination of the 'modernization' of this area of social care. It analyzes some of the key themes introduced by the administrations of John Major and Tony Blair and provides a critical exploration of contemporary policy initiatives and issues.
The author argues that political and ideological factors need to be taken into account in order to understand the dominant discourses and evolving practices of social work with children. Potential fixation with ensuring that young people are able to 'fit' into their allotted roles in a market economy and an overarching concern about children and criminality have been crucial in this respect. He concludes that while social workers and educators should be prepared to embrace change, they need to be...

From Publishers Weekly
How does one learn from the wisdom of Native American cultures without adding to the violence that has been done to the sacredness and integrity of those traditions? In this volume, Garrett, an Eastern Band Cherokee who teaches education at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, provides profound and beautiful answers to that question. As he notes, the book has two goals: to honor his people's vision of a balanced life and to share their accumulated wisdom about health and wellness with the larger, contemporary culture. Each chapter features delightful narratives of Cherokee stories and myths?the love of Moon for Sun, how the animals teach humanity to respect the harmony of nature, why possum's tail is bare, why turtle's shell is scarred, as well as recollections from Garrett's childhood. He notes that his...

From Publishers Weekly
Narrator Ellen learns about love, family and "society's unwritten rules" in this sophisticated but gentle novel set in Manhattan. Ellen adores her older brother, Link, and has had a crush on Link's best friend, James, since seventh grade. But at 14, when she starts high school, popular classmate Adena, who really likes Link, mentions to Ellen: "They're like a couple, aren't they?" Freymann-Weyr (When I Was Older) subtly and authentically follows Ellen's thought process as the question triggers a series of responses: "I resolve never to ask them. Ever. I resolve to put it out of my mind. There is no reason for me to know." Yet Ellen reviews their past behavior for clues. When Ellen finally frames the question to Link and James ("I spear a cherry with an unused fork... and ask if they are a couple"), Link denies...

Book Review
This ninth installment in the Hot Blood series shows no sign of flagging imagination on the part of the contributors--not surprisingly, because the concept of erotic horror encompasses everything dark and sensual that can happen between two beings (human or otherwise). In fact, in a time when only a few original (or mostly original) anthologies are published each year, Jeff Gelb's and Michael Garrett's has become one to bank on. The 13 stories in Crimes of Passion include three reprints (all from relatively obscure publications such as The Ontario Review) and 11 original tales, by such authors as Ramsey Campbell, Greg Kihn, Lawrence Block, Brian Hodge, Brian Lumley, Tom Piccirilli, and Joyce Carol Oates. There's not a bad story in the bunch, and several are strikingly effective--such as Kihn's acid-tripping nightmare in late...


American Home: From Colonial Simplicity to the Modern Adventure

Hardcover

Book Description
Nowhere else in the world can compare with the incredible array of domestic architecture in America. It sometimes seems that there are as many styles of houses as there are actual number of houses. While the earliest American houses were largely derived from English or Dutch prototypes, the diversity for which America is so celebrated soon emerged, reflecting mostly how Americans used their homes, as well as local and regional tastes and vernacular and folk origins from around the world. The variety and dynamism in the style of homes in that emerging pluralistic society marches on today in homes designed by adventuresome architects and clients.

In this extraordinary celebration of the American house, renowned author David Larkin, with commentary by some of today's leading architectural historians and critics,...


Baseball Days: Recollections of America's Favorite Pastime

Book Review
Garret Mathews has a favorite baseball memory. When he was a boy, he lived next to Gail Harris, a big leaguer with the New York Giants and Detroit Tigers. Harris once told him that on the last game of the year he had 19 runs and wanted to hit his 20th. The opposing team's catcher, Earl Batty, was a friend. "Earl knew I'd probably never hit that many again... so he agreed to give me a chance." The next pitch was a fastball, and Harris drove it over the right field fence. Mathews remembers, "I was in heaven. He had given me something more precious than balls and bats. He had shared a piece of baseball lore."

Mathews asked 64 people, including LeRoy Neiman, Don Larson, Dick Vitale, and W.P. Kinsella, to share their own pieces of baseball lore. The result is Baseball Days, a nostalgic look at the national pastime. The pieces...
