  • by Deirdre McKay
    £12.99

    A study of Filipino caregivers in London and what it says for migrant workers and the networks they build in the global marketplace.Focusing on the experience of Filipino caregivers in London, some of whom are living and working illegally in their host country, Deirdre McKay considers what migrant workers must do to navigate their way in a global marketplace. She draws on interviews and participant observations, her own long-term fieldwork in communities in the Philippines, and digital ethnography to present an intricate consideration of how these caregivers create stability in potentially precarious living situations. McKay argues that these workers gain resilience from the bonding networks they construct for themselves through social media, faith groups, and community centers. These networks generate an elaborate "e;archipelago of care"e; through which migrants create their sense of self."e;A beautifully written ethnography of Filipino migrants in the UK and their experience of living their lives within and across the UK and the Philippines, mediated by physical space, institutions and a series of digital media."e; -Heather Horst, coauthor of Digital Ethnography: Principles and Practices"e;Deirdre McKay takes a novel approach to key concepts undergirding globalization and transnationalism today-citizenship, surveillance, and security. She makes us think differently about the negotiation of belonging in a digital and hyper-securitized age."e; -Jennifer Burrell, author of Maya After War: Conflict, Power, and Politics in Guatemala

  • - The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need
    by Bill Gates
    £8.99

    In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical - and accessible - plan for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe.Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet's slide toward certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.He gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations. Finally, he lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissions-suggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise.As Bill Gates makes clear, achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach.

    Am fost un om zdrobit, intors spre moarte, nu inspre viata. La 30 de ani, ma imaginam traind doar inca citiva ani, la fel de zbuciumat cum am trait mereu. Apoi, murind devreme. Cu un ochi priveam spre moarte, iar cu celalalt spre copiii mei, opintindu-ma sa mai traiesc o vreme, cit sa vad fetele suficient de mari ca sa se descurce singure. Este un miracol ca nu am murit, traind atit de sinucigas, fara macar sa-mi dau seama. Am trecut razant pe linga moarte, nu doar fiindca am fost ingropata sub o avalansa, ci fiindca am trait fiecare zi ca sa mor. Am facut intoarcerea spre viata in ziua in care am decis sa ma vindec. Nu stiam atunci, insa, ca asta fac, un U turn definitiv spre lumina. Am aflat abia acum, dupa un drum lung si dureros, cind am ajuns.Am adunat n cartea aceasta drumul meu spre sine E i lecE iile mele.

    £22.99

    The Other Side of the Sea, the first novel by this major Haitian author to be translated into English, is riveted on the other shore--whether it is the ancestral Africa that still haunts Haitians, the America to which so many have emigrated, or even that final shore, the uncertain afterlife awaiting us all. With a grandmother and her grandson sharing the narration, this rich and concise tale covers an impressive span of Haitian history and emotion. Too old to leave her veranda, Noubt reflects on her past, touching on the 1937 Parsley Massacre, in which thousands of Haitians died at the hands of Dominican soldiers, and laments the exodus of so many young people from Haiti, although, ironically, she dreamed of making the trip herself (her name means New Boat in Creole). Her story is juxtaposed with that of her grandson, Jonas, as he suffers the abandonment of friends--including his lover--who emigrated during the Duvalier dictatorships, even feeling an urge to join them. Perhaps most striking is the addition of a third voice--that of an anonymous passenger in steerage recounting a slave ship's progress to the New World from Africa. This voice from long ago provides a powerful depiction of the sights, sounds, and smells of the Middle Passage and a fascinating counterpoint to the evocations of modern Haiti.CARAF Books: Caribbean and African Literature Translated from French

  • - Stop Pleasing, Start Living: THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
    by Glennon Doyle
    £6.99

    'This book will shake your brain and make your soul scream. I am so ready for myself after reading this book!' Adele'Untamed will liberate women - emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.' Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray LoveWho were you before the world told you who to be? Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us. From the beloved New York Times bestselling author, speaker and activist Glennon Doyle.*****For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There. She. Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high but soon she realised they had come to her from within. This was the voice she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions and social conditioning. Glennon decided to let go of the world's expectations of her and reclaim her true untamed self. Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanising wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is also the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honour our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts.Untamed shows us how to be brave. And, as Glennon insists, 'The braver we are, the luckier we get.'
