  • A Blue New Deal: Why We Need a New Politics for the Ocean

    An urgent account of the state of our oceans today—and what we must do to protect them
    The ocean sustains life on our planet, from absorbing carbon to regulating temperatures, and, as we exhaust the resources to be found on land, it is becoming central to the global market. But today we are facing two urgent challenges at sea: massive environmental destruction, and spiraling inequality in the ocean economy.
    Chris Armstrong reveals how existing governing institutions are failing to respond to the most pressing problems of our time, arguing that we must do better. Armstrong examines these crises—from the fate of people whose lands will be submerged by sea level rise to the exploitation of people working in fishing to the rights of marine animals—and makes the case for a powerful World Ocean Authority capable of tackling them. A Blue New Deal presents a radical manifesto for putting equality, democracy, and sustainability at the heart of ocean politics.

  • A Brief History of Thailand: Monarchy, War and Resilience: The Fascinating Story of the Gilded Kingdom at the Heart of Asia (Brief History of Asia) (Brief History Of Asia Series)

    Thailand is known for its picturesque beaches and famous temples, but there’s much more to this popular holiday destination than many realize.

    A Brief History of Thailand offers an engaging look at the country’s last 250 years―from coups and violent massacres to the invention of Pad Thai in the 1930’s. Readers will learn the vibrant story of Thailand’s emergence as a prosperous Buddhist state, its transformation from traditional kingdom to democratic constitutional monarchy and its subsequent rise to prominence in Southeast Asian affairs.

    Thailand’s dramatic history spans centuries of conflict, and this book recounts many of these fascinating episodes, including:

    • The true story of Anna Leonowens, the British governess hired to teach the children of King Mongkut, fictionalized in Margaret Landon’s bestselling novel Anna and the King of Siam and turned into a hit Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and film, The King and I
    • The bloodless Siamese Revolution of 1932 that established overnight the first constitutional monarchy in Asia, ending almost eight centuries of absolute rule and creating a democratic system of parliamentary government
    • The Japanese invasion of Thailand and construction of the ‘Bridge Over the River Kwai’ made famous by the novel and Oscar-winning film
    • The mysterious death of King Ananda Mahidol, murdered in his bed in 1946, and a source of controversy ever since
    • The development of Thailand as an international playground during the Vietnam War, when American military used it as rowdy destination for servicemen on furlough
    • The 70-year reign of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest-serving monarch, who was born in the U.S., educated in Switzerland, loved to play the saxophone and was idolized by his people

    With this book, historian and professor Richard A. Ruth has skillfully crafted an accessible cultural and political history of an understudied nation. Covering events through the King’s death in 2016, A Brief History of Thailand will be of interest to students, travelers and anyone hoping to learn more about this part of the world.

  • A History of Fairground Transport: From Horses to Artics

    Travelling fairs hold a special place in English history and traditions. Once or twice a year local towns and villages are overwhelmed with a cacophony of sounds, sights and smells, bringing magic and excitement into peoples’ lives before, all too quickly, moving on. The transient nature of travelling fairs is part of their magic, and an integral part of that magic is the transport that carries the people and the rides. More than just vehicles however, fairground transport is often an integral part of the show, acting as homes for the showmen, a way of generating power and even converting into parts of the rides themselves. In short, they are part of the way of life. This book looks at the history of the travelling fair through its transport, beginning with how it has evolved from what a performer could carry on their back and simple horse-drawn caravans, through to steam-powered traction engines and war surplus petrol and electric vehicles, finally bringing the story up to date with today’s mega lorries and cranes.

            • A People’s Green New Deal

              The idea of a Green New Deal was launched into popular consciousness by US Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2018. It has become a watchword in the current era of global climate crisis. But what – and for whom – is the Green New Deal? In this concise and urgent book, Max Ajl provides an overview of the various mainstream Green New Deals. Critically engaging with their proponents, ideological underpinnings and limitations, he goes on to sketch out a radical alternative: a ‘People’s Green New Deal’ committed to decommodification, working-class power, anti-imperialism and agro-ecology. Ajl diagnoses the roots of the current socio-ecological crisis as emerging from a world-system dominated by the logics of capitalism and imperialism. Resolving this crisis, he argues, requires nothing less than an infrastructural and agricultural transformation in the Global North, and the industrial convergence between North and South. As the climate crisis deepens and the literature on the subject grows, A People’s Green New Deal contributes a distinctive perspective to the debate.

              Fire safety has been at the forefront of the public consciousness since the tragedy at Grenfell Tower in 2017. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the main piece of legislation dealing with fire safety in premises other than dwellings in England and Wales. It imposes numerous duties on employers, landlords, occupiers which are complex and often confusing.

              This book provides a simple overview and explanation of the Order and the legal duties imposed by it for non-lawyers and lawyers alike. It explains who is responsible for complying with those duties and to what extent, how those duties are enforced through investigation, formal notices and prosecution and the potential consequences of breach.

            • A Short History of the World According to Sheep


              ‘This book deserves a place in your bookcase next to Harari’s Sapiens. It’s every bit as fascinating and is surely destined to be just as successful’ Julian Norton

              From the plains of ancient Mesopotamia to the vast sheep farms of modern-day Australia, sheep have been central to the human story. Since our our Neolithic ancestors’ first forays into sheep-rearing nearly 11,000 years ago, these remarkable animals have fed us, clothed us, changed our diet and language and financed the conquest of large swathes of the earth.

              Sally Coulthard weaves this fascinating story into a vivid and colourful tapestry of engaging anecdotes and extraordinary ovine facts, whose multiple strands celebrate just how pivotal these woolly animals are to almost every aspect of human society and culture.

              This title was published also in the United States under the title Follow the Flock.

            • A-Minute-A-Day Mental Maths 3rd Edition [UK}: 42 Photocopiable One Minute Challenges to Improve Mental Maths Skills

              A-MINUTE-A-DAY is a series of three *precision- teaching based books, [Phonics. Mental Maths and High Frequency Words], which aim to improve basic reading and mental maths skills, in a challenging yet fun way. The books contain photocopiable games, each one focusing upon a specific group of letters, words or numbers. The aim of each game is for the child to give 30 correct verbal responses within 1 minute. NO WRITING SKILLS ARE REQUIRED. The games may be used by a teacher or parent to provide intensive practice in specific areas. Each page may be used repeatedly by the child for practice both in school and at home, and progress assessed by the teacher in just A-MINUTE-A-DAY. This approach has at its roots, a method known as *precision- teaching, which, since its inception in 1964, has been adopted by an ever increasing number of teachers, and its proven success in both mainstream and special needs education is indisputable. The value of precision- teaching lies in identifying a specific area of need for a particular child, followed by a daily period of teaching, testing and evaluating progress. Normally, this process would take around 10-15 minutes of completely undivided attention for a particular child. Whilst this can be considered a short enough period to offer any child, for a teacher without ancillary support and with multiple children requiring similar help, it can often be impossible to achieve. A-MINUTE-A-DAY offers a new methodology, which, by engaging parents as partners, enables teachers to offer their pupils tailored, systematic practice and monitoring of progress on a daily basis, whilst drastically reducing the amount of teacher involvement, ie it is a TEACHER TIMESAVER. Included at the end of each book are three content free games, which may be used by the teacher to create additional questions to suit an individual child, or to offer a game with high repetition for children who learn at a slower rate.
