    Understanding Violence T
    For most of us, violence is something observed from the safety of our living spaces where we watch televised terrorist attacks and ongoing global conflict. We engage with the horror of mass shootings, and try to make sense of what appears to be senseless violence toward innocent victims. Domestic murders and assaults now seem commonplace items in our newspapers. But many human service workers and social workers confront violence-related issues every day in situations arising across every stratum of our society.
    This book takes a multi-disciplinary perspective towards understanding and developing effective responses to violence, its prevention and management. It encompasses a variety of fields of practice and offers sound analysis of theories that underpin these fields along with their pracice implications.
    Understanding Violence: Context and Practice in the Human Services is a reference for professionals, an essential resource for students and will be of interest to the wider community in explaining community responses to violence. The editors have recruited a wide range of experts who collectively offer valuable insights into different aspects of violence. There is something in the book for researchers, practitioners amd policy analysts and it should provide readers with a comprehensive overview of both New Zealand and international cutting-edge strategies for dealing with violence in its various forms.

  • Wealth and New Zealand
    Wealth and New Zealand
    The most recent NBR Rich List has revealed the biggest proportional increase in wealth since the list first appeared in 1986. But what do these figures mean and what else do we know about New Zealand's fortunes? Following his groundbreaking work on income inequality, Max Rashbrooke examines how wealth shapes New Zealand experience. Drawing on previously unpublished data, this award-winning writer explores what constitutes wealth in New Zealand - where, how and why it is held. In doing so, he addresses how wealth has come to be so unevenly distributed, and why this imbalance is something we can no longer ignore.

  • Why Science Is Sexist
    Why Science Is Sexist
    In June 2015, Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt resigned from the Faculty of Life Sciences at University College London after making a dismissive remark about female scientists.The incident is just the tip of the iceberg, argues Nicola Gaston, President of the New Zealand Association of Scientists. In this timely BWB Text, she scrutinises the sexism afflicting the discipline of science, from the under-representation of women to the 'scientific' argument that mental capabilities are gendered. Ultimately, she asks what can be done to combat unconscious bias in science - and to ensure that the future of scientific inquiry is both balanced and objective.
