  1. Gender and Development

    Children are born into a world infused with gendered information. An understanding of what it is to be a boy or girl can be critical in forming social relationships, social identities, and learning how to think and behave. Gender and Development is an important new volume that charts how children practice these gendered identities at different ages and in different social contexts

  2. Self Research

    In Self Research, Ian Law outlines and draws together the theoretical, institutional and practice elements of this work, and offers illustrative examples of how different elements of the methodology can be applied in practice.

  3. The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership

    People have been horrified by the story of three women in London who were rescued by the police from what was initially described as a case of ‘slavery.’ It has since emerged that they were part of a small political cult for over 30 years, run by a married couple. Dennis Tourish is Professor of Leadership at Royal Holloway, University of London. His latest book, The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership, explores how manipulative leaders can sometimes exercise total control over their followers. Dennis has been interviewed on all the main UK news programmes including Radio 4’s World at One, Sky News, BBC, ITV and BBC World News, to provide expert commentary on a case that has fascinated and appalled the public.

  4. Historical Tales and National Identity

    Social psychologists argue that people’s past weighs on their present. Consistent with this view, Historical Tales and National Identity outlines a theory and a methodology which provide tools for better understanding the relation between the present psychological condition of a society and representations of its past.

  5. Decolonizing Global Mental Health

    Decolonizing Global Mental Health is a book that maps a strange irony. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Movement for Global Mental Health are calling to ‘scale up’ access to psychological and psychiatric treatments globaly, particularly within the global South. Simultaneously, in the global North, psychiatry and its oftentimes chemical treatments are coming under increased criticism (from both those who take the medication and those in the position to prescribe it).

  6. Cyberbullying through the New Media

    Cyberbullying is one of the darker and more troubling aspects to the growing accessibility of new media technologies. Children in developed countries engage with cyberspace at younger and younger ages, and the use of the internet as a means to bully and harass has been greeted with alarm by educationalists, parents, the media, and governments.
