John Peel ist der liebe Gott eines musikalischen Universums, das er eigenhändig geschaffen hat. Seine obsessive Suche nach dem Neuen in der Musik und seine Abneigung gegen Mittelmaß und Mainstream machten den Briten zum einflussreichsten DJ der Musikgeschichte. Mit seinen BBC-Sendungen, die weltweit zu hören waren, prägte er vierzig Jahre lang Musikfans und Musiker. Unzählige Bands haben ihm ihren Erfolg zu verdanken, ganze Genres wie Punk, Rap, Techno oder Hiphop hätten ohne ihn ein anderes Gesicht. Die Liste von Musikern, die er bekannt machte, ist endlos. Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Roxy Music, Grateful Dead, The Smiths und The White Stripes sind nur einige Namen. Während der Arbeit an seiner Autobiografie, für die der englische Verlag über zwei Millionen Euro hinblätterte, starb John Peel unerwartet an einem Herzinfarkt. Seine Frau, die er liebevoll »The Pig« nannte, schrieb das Buch zu Ende.

Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here "This book wins on two levels: not only is there an extensive range of concepts presented (including some that are unexpected yet clearly relevant), there is also a succinct, thorough and critical dissection of each. Recommended, if not essential, reading for all student mental health professionals." - Dr Steven Pryjmachuk, Head of Mental Health Division, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, University of Manchester Mental health is an area that new students and trainee practitioners often find bewildering. This book cuts through the stigma associated with this topic. It delivers bite-sized chunks of information that cover the central concepts and debates which shape contemporary views about mental health and illness. As this book shows, these key concepts not only influence our understanding of mental health, but also govern the provision of services for people with mental-health problems. Drawing together perspectives from sociology, psychiatry, psychology and ethics, the vital topics in mental health are examined in three parts: - PART ONE: Mental Health and Mental-Health Problems explores theories and understandings of mental health and illness - PART TWO: Mental Health Services looks at the structure and organization of mental health service delivery, past and present - PART THREE: Mental Health and Society studies the social context. This new edition adds 10 new concepts as well as updating the previous entries. New topics include childhood adversity, recovery, spirituality, well-being, social and cultural capital, quality of mental-health services, evidence-based practice, and work and mental health. This book will be invaluable for trainee health professionals, including clinical psychologists, social workers, nurses, counsellors and psychotherapists.

Diese Sammlung von Schriften aus der Zeit von 1970 bis 1990 des brasilianischen Pädagogen Paulo Freire (1921-1997) gibt einen Einblick in die Grundlagen und Prinzipien seiner Bildungsarbeit auf der Basis der Pädagogik der Befreiung. In den ausgewählten Texten werden nicht nur pädagogische Probleme und inhaltlich-methodische Fragen der Bildungsarbeit thematisiert. Sie enthalten ebenso Analysen und Bewertungen von Politik, Kultur, Religion, Ethik und Veränderungsmöglichkeiten von Gesellschaft - eine Erweiterung, die sich gegen eine Vorstellung wendet, Pädagogik sei von Gesellschaft und Politik losgelöst zu behandeln. Scharfsinnig hat Freire u.a. die verheerenden Folgen des Neoliberalismus für Individuum und Gesellschaft analysiert und zum widerständigen Denken und Handeln ermuntert. Eine Auswahl repräsentativer alter und neuer Texte von Paulo Freire: Wer sie zur Hand nimmt, entdeckt rasch, dass uns dieser brasilianische Pädagoge nicht nur für die Theorie und Praxis unserer Erziehungsarbeit, sondern für unser Überleben Entscheidendes zu sagen hat.
