Cole, W. Owen
W Owen Cole, has had a distinguished career in Religious Education, and has a world-wide reputation as a distinguished commentator on multifaith issues and practice, as well as on Sikhism. He has written - on his own and in conjunction with others many well received books, continually used in teaching from primary to tertiary education, including: "Six World Faiths" (Continuum); "Religious Education in the Primary Curriculum: Teaching Strategies and Practical Activities" (with Judith Evans Lowndes, Religious and Moral Education Press); "Six Religions in the Twenty First Century" (with Peggy Morgan; Stanley Thornes); "Spirituality in Focus" (Heinemann); "Hinduism" (with Hemant Kannitkar, Heinemann); "Understanding Sikhism" (Dunedin Academic Press); and, "The Sikhs: Their Religious Beliefs & Practices" (with Piara Singh Sambhi; Sussex Academic Press). Owen Cole sets out on his journey towards a multifaith world view detailing his encounters with the Indo Pakistan subcontinent and the UK and those individuals - Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish and Christian - who were to shape his thinking and educational stances. This book is required reading for those who have benefited from Owen Cole's previous books, educators involved in multi-faith issues and questions associated with faith schools and school worship, and all those who enjoy biography at its sharpest. 204pp.

Edited By Anders, Lou
Science Fiction is the genre that looks at the implications of technology on society, which in this age of exponential technological growth makes it the most relevant branch of literature going. This is only the start, and the close of the 21st century will look absolutely nothing like its inception. It has been said that science fiction is an ongoing dialogue about the future, and the front line of that dialogue is the short story. The field has a long history of producing famous anthologies to showcase its distinguished short fiction, but it has been several years since there has been a prestigious all-original science fiction anthology series. "Fast Forward" is offered in the tradition of Damon Knight's prestigious and influential anthology series, "Orbit", and Frederik Pohl's landmark "Star SF". "Fast Forward" marks the start of a new hard science fiction anthology series, dedicated to presenting the vanguard of the genre and charting the undiscovered country that is the future. 409pp.

Russell, Josephine
This book examines moral responsiveness and thinking in a mixed gender class of primary school children, and offers a theoretical perspective on children's ability to think together about morality in a community of enquiry and on related issues of pedagogy. It tracks development in children's moral awareness, looking at gains and losses from middle to late childhood, and focuses on cognitive skills, notions of moral rectitude, and interpersonal relationships and friendship. The study demonstrates how, through participation in a community of enquiry such as 'Thinking Time - Philosophy with Children' (children sit in a circle, engaging in dialogue, with the teacher as facilitator), children become more thoughtful and develop respect and responsiveness as well as other traits of character that are central to democratic citizenship. The author analyses children's thinking in response to a wide range of content, on issues of justice, freedom and responsibility, rights and duties, inclusiveness, and friendship. Gender differences are also examined. With the increasing emphasis on education for citizenship in the school curriculum comes an awareness that 'children's voice' and 'agency' need to be respected and promoted. Social Personal and Health Education, Values Education, and Education for Citizenship are becoming more critical in an environment where there is a sense of crisis and concern about the fabric of democratic society. In presenting a new paradigm - research with rather than on children, entering into their life-world which their teacher shares - the author demonstrates the potential of children to reflect in a concerned way on issues that concern them and society as a whole. 239pp.
