In this swiftly paced, breathlessly suspenseful debut novel, the bizarre rampage of an elusive serial killer sends shockwaves through Boston, igniting a harrowing police manhunt and resounding at the highest levels of the criminal justice system. Drawing on 11 years' experience as a Boston assistant district attorney - and as chief prosecutor with the elite Gang Unit - Raffi Yessayan renders a stark, realistic, and gripping portrait of law enforcement professionals on the job, and under the gun, in a city at the mercy of a madman.The scene is perplexingly always the same: the home of a single woman, no signs of forced entry, no evidence of an intruder, and no victim - only a bathtub filled with blood.Newly promoted homicide detective Angel Alves wants to make his mark in the department and a difference on the streets. But juggling the needs of a family and the demands of a relentlessly driven partner tests the young cop's commitment just as tracking the killer challenges his skills. Meanwhile, assistant DA Conrad Darget has his own hands full - mentoring an ambitious young law student, whom he is also dating, rallying his fellow attorneys in their daily courtroom battles, and striving to win true justice in an imperfect system. With each new attack the twisted mystery only deepens, and the hunger for answers - and action - intensifies. No sane mind could comprehend the dark design behind it all. And no one can anticipate the final fateful strokes that will lead to a shocking endgame.From its chilling first pages to its heart-stopping home stretch, Eight in the Box thrills at every turn and surprises at every opportunity - racing at an ever increasing velocity to deliver a climax that pays off in devastating style. 1.

Gleason's Gym is the last remaining institution of New York's Golden Age of boxing. Jake LaMotta, Muhammad Ali, Hector Camacho, Mike Tyson - the alumni of Gleason's are a roster of boxing greats. Founded in the Bronx in 1937, Gleason's moved in the mid-1980s to what has since become one of New York's wealthiest residential areas - Brooklyn's DUMBO. Gleason's has also transformed, opening its doors to new members, particularly women and white-collar men. Come Out Swinging is Lucia Trimbur's nuanced insider's account of a place that was once the domain of poor and working-class men of color but is now shared by rich and poor, male and female, black and white, and young and old. Come Out Swinging chronicles the everyday world of the gym. Its diverse members train, fight, talk, and socialize together. We meet amateurs for whom boxing is a full-time, unpaid job. We get to know the trainers who act as their father figures and mentors. We are introduced to women who empower themselves physically and mentally. And we encounter the male urban professionals who pay handsomely to learn to box, and to access a form of masculinity missing from their office-bound lives. Ultimately, Come Out Swinging reveals how Gleason's meets the needs of a variety of people who, despite their differences, are connected through discipline and sport. 1. Language: English.

How are predominantly African American churches meeting the needs of young people? What resources of, and tensions in, faith leadership are shaping answers to this and other related questions? Nurturing Sanctuary analyzes ways in which the two most vital institutions of the Black experience - families and churches - are working with schools and health providers to respond to contemporary challenges and improve the twenty-first century life chances of African Americans and others. Data were generated from a four-year collaboration of eighteen churches, public health professionals, service learning students, and an interdisciplinary team of researchers. Eighty parents and pastors, and over 400 teenagers in a large, Midwestern city specified strategies of action in their daily lives and how they use them to respond, more and less successfully, to their many life challenges. Nurturing Sanctuary explores three capacity-building themes that emerged and critiques diverse Sacred and secular resources being developed and used. Finally, it specifies innovative best practices that are enriching faith-health relationships among religiously active persons, and all others with whom they interact within and beyond sanctuary walls.
In 2007/08 the industrialized world faced one of the major economic crises the world has ever seen. Due to the fact that the states invested a lot of money to overcome the economic breakdown Europe is suffering since then a debt crisis. The social consequences are tremendous, in some countries mostly affected by the crisis one is speaking of a lost generation of young people, jobless and without perspective. But even in the countries with better economic performance discontent of the population suffering from austerity measures is rising and the question of a more just redistribution of wealth is fervently discussed.What is the perception of social work academics and professionals about all this? One might assume that social work is concerned in two ways: First the social situation of the raising number of clients should be of concern. And second the profession itself is victim of social spending cuts thus facing even deteriorating working conditions. In this situation one would assume that the economic and financial crisis and its consequences would be an important point of discussion. But the contrary is true, the profession continues with business as usual.This was the starting point and motivation of the team of the Europe Institute for Social Work to dedicate the Summer School 2012 to the subject “The Social Dimension of the Economic Crisis in Europe”. A couple of highly experienced experts have been participating and wrote down their findings in the following articles.First of all it was necessary to get an overview on the economic background of the crisis. Silke Tober in the article “Reluctant Lone Ranger: The ECB in the Euro Area Crisis” works out that the current crisis is the result of drastic austerity measures implemented to restore fiscal sustainability. She characterizes the posture of European governments towards overcoming the crisis as doing “too little, too late”. Since governments and ECB are falsely obsessed by the idea that lack of fiscal discipline is the major cause of the crisis (instead of identifying them in major economic unbalances), they give the patient even more of the false medicine. Thus restoring the economies is only possible if this false thinking can be overcome.This can only be achieved if the discussion is not only led by economic experts. Thus the article by David Kramer and Heinz Stapf-Finé “Impacts of the crisis on the working conditions of social workers” starts by explaining the main reasons of the economic crisis in a language easy to understand. Three are the main reasons: major economic unbalances, a redistribution of income and wealth from the poor to the rich and deregulation of the international financial markets.The consequences for social workers are: the already poor working conditions of the profession are getting worse.Christine Labonté-Roset in her contribution “Social Marginalisation and Poverty” treats the effects of the economic crisis on social cohesion and social exclusion. She states that social work as the profession most closely linked with social welfare needs new concepts of empowering marginalized populations. She shows two successful examples how social work can work in a creative, cooperative and democratic way with excluded people.“Access to the labor market with special consideration of youth unemployment” is the title of an article written by Alfredo Langa Herrero. Doing a brief study on the case of Spain he shows that as a consequence of austerity policy half of the young people are unemployed and have no perspective for the future. Mostly affected are low and middle skilled people, foreigners and women. He claims that the social consequences of the crisis must be considered in order to avoid dangerous political collateral effects.The case study of Spain clearly shows that if every second youngster is without a job the problem is a structural one (and not the fault of each individual). Thus the traditionally client centered social work comes to its limitations. José María Morán Carillo in his article “Impacts on methods of social work” even states a deep crisis within the profession: “I understand that one of the situations that have caused some form of crisis in Social Work is a poor management of its theoretical framework, or what is the same, an epistemological deficit that clearly explains who we are and what we do as professionals in social intervention.”Media play an important role for the (mis-)interpretation of the causes and social consequences of the crisis. In the joint contribution “Media Representation of the Crisis” Ulrike Hemberger critically analyzes the construction of narration and pictures of the crisis: what is excluded in the dialogue in the media, what is displaced and what is hidden concerning the socioeconomic developments? With the example of the film “Inside Job” Wim Franssen shows that the informed and critical use of the media can enhance expertise. How the active work with media used by grassroots movements can create an alternative view on the subject of the crisis is shown in the contribution of Nazan Haydari “Women Workers Strike in Novamed in Turkey: Reconceptualization of the Financial Crisis through Feminist Media”. We hope that this publication can help to draw an alternative view on the reasons and consequences of the economic crisis. Furthermore the profession of social work needs a creative discussion on the development of methods and on the own working conditions. We hopefully created a positive impulse.Heinz Stapf-Finé
Today s young people are living in an exciting point in time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies and expanding opportunities. Consequently, meeting their counseling needs becomes an important part of the educational system. School counseling and guidance is widely regarded as an educational service through which students become well-adjusted and productive citizens of a country. However, it is still not formalized in several countries. This book, therefore, explores the counseling and guidance needs of students taking into consideration the three domains of school counseling: personal/social, academic, and career. The author provides readers with an assessment of the counseling and guidance needs of students from non-western cultural contexts focusing on the areas of counseling and guidance that are most beneficial and necessary to students. The text also explores how school counseling emerged and evolved in the US and other countries. Counseling and Guidance Needs of Students is an essential resource for school counselors and all counseling professionals, educators, administrators, supervisors, counselors-in-training, parents, and libraries.
