‘Effective Child Protection is a significant contribution to child welfare practice and policy…Munro offers a pathway to achieving better outcomes for children and families who are recipients of child protection services’ – Children and Youth Services Review Praise for the First Edition: `The book makes the fully justified claim [that] it will be essential reading for professionals undergoing qualifying and post-qualifying training. It is to be hoped that it will enjoy an even wider readership’ – Child Abuse Review This new edition is essential reading for anyone concerned with improving child protection practice. Building on the strengths of the first edition, it provides a deeper understanding of how practice judgements and decisions can be improved in child protection work. Updates include: – an account of how intuition, emotion, and analytic thinking are combined in practice – an analysis of how the nature of the task determines what combination is needed – an updated chapter on how we can detect errors – new material on how organisations can promote good reasoning skills – a simpler way to understand risk assessment instruments. Illustrated with detailed case studies throughout, it will be invaluable reading for students, researchers and practitioners in all areas of child protection, including social work, education, health and policing. Eileen Munro is a Reader in Social Policy at the London School of Economics, specialising in child protection. Other publications include Child Protection (SAGE 2006).

Before there was such a term as “low-intensity conflict,” the U.S. Marine Corps were already past masters of the art. This manual encapsulates all their learnings and experiences of what we now know as military peacekeeping and counter-insurgency operations. It covers every aspect of the problem, from the legality and responsibility of the first formal order, through staff organization, logistics, training, patrolling, convoys, native organizations, overseeing democratic elections, and finally planning and executing an orderly withdrawal. The equipment and attitudes may have changed since its first publication in 1940, but the fundamentals of human psychology and military science remain the same: the manual was recommended reading for Marine Corps personnel when they returned to Iraq as an occupation force.

I have been very critical of many Small Wars Manual I have read this summer. I cannot say the same about this book. It captured my interest from the start and has continued to captivate me. I am not quite done with the book, but will be soon. I do not think the ending will be a disappointment because the entire book is so good.
I really enjoyed Small Wars Manual. I was just planning on reading a few pages when I started but You will enjoy this book!!!
Glamour Charlotte and the Awards Night plus Ugly Duckling Pt 1 By Paul Zante
Glamour Charlotte and the Awards Night. This year’s awards night is going to be special – because I’m going with my mistress! The day starts with me in my sexy Maid uniform and progresses to Secretary Charlotte and then onto Glamour Charlotte for the evening. But as I don’t have a gown to wear my mistress organises one for me and I have to wait to see what she’s chosen for me – it’s hard being a beautiful sissy! Check out our clothes, who my mistress invites (and what we do with him), and what award I win at the end of the night. Ugly Duckling Pt 1. Thinking that I’ve been invited to an exclusive country house for my health I’m shocked to find that my house has been broken into and intimate details of my private life have been discovered. This, according to the owner of Magne House, is so I can be helped. But do I need to be humiliated by being shown a film taken of me watching sissy porn on the internet? Does my treatment really have to involve being forced to be the sex toy of two dominant shemales? Read part one of how they humiliate me further in order to ‘help’ me.
I couldn’t put this Glamour Charlotte and the Awards Night plus Ugly Duckling Pt 1 down! Very suspenseful, I never expected the things that happened when I turned the page
I read this because it was recommended to me. You never know who it might help. Fantastic Glamour Charlotte and the Awards Night plus Ugly Duckling Pt 1 and highly recommend for everyone. Enjoy.
Civil Engineering A Very Short Introduction By David Muir Wood
Civil engineering produces the structures of all human settlements worldwide and is a vital discipline for many aspects modern life, underlying housing, transport, and our major areas and buildings related to work, study, and leisure. In this Very Short Introduction, David Muir Wood demonstrates the nature and importance of civil engineering not only in the history of civilization and urbanization, but its range of facets today, and its challenges for the future. Beginning with the challenge of creating a settlement on a deserted island, which sets out the problems that civil engineers need to solve, he looks at the social and environmental considerations as well as the science, technology, and craft of building bridges, tunnels, houses, and areas of recreation. He highlights the lives of some major civil engineers, including Brunel and Bazalgette, considers the challenges of managing water and energy, and looks at our increasing sensitivity to building and the environment.
I think everyone should read Civil Engineering A Very Short Introduction. It is helpful not only for work environment but for life. I strongly recommend this.
Civil Engineering A Very Short Introduction was an amazing start to understanding the cause of many of my relationship struggles and more importantly, how to begin to fix them. The other book I highly recommend reading.
