Fitskirk, Peter
Many of contemporary society's myriad problems can be traced to aberrant behaviour. Behavioural psychology has been applied to a wide range of problems which include, but are not limited to the following: (a) Anxiety disorders (obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder); (b) Depressive disorders (unipolar depression, dysthymic disorder); (c) Personality disorders (borderline personality disorder); (d) Substance abuse (alcoholism; drug abuse); (e) Health-related problems (sleep disorders, eating disorders, weight control, pain, distress associated with chronic illness); (f) Childhood disorders (conduct disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder); (g) Pervasive developmental disorders (behavioural problems, language problems, social skill deficits); (h) Violence and aggressive behaviour (criminal behaviour, sex offending); (i) Developmental disabilities (adaptive behaviour, behaviour problems, language difficulties); (j) Academic performance; (k) Relationship problems (sexual dysfunction, marital difficulties); (l) Schizophrenia (skill deficits, psychotic behaviour); (m) Public safety issues (i.e., wearing seat belts).

Whitehead, John S.
As late as mid-1941 the two territories of Alaska and Hawaii were little known by most Americans. Alaska was seen as a frozen wasteland and Hawaii, an exotic outpost in the mid-Pacific with a multi-racial, particularly Asian, population. The bombing of Pearl Harbor in late 1941 and the capture of two Aleutian Islands in 1942 made the two territories central theatres of World War II. Thousands of Americans came to know Alaska and Hawaii as never before. Once the war ended both territories hoped that statehood would be their reward for such loyal wartime service. Their strategic locations pointed to an increased national involvement in the Pacific and Asia. The 49th and 50th states would eventually be admitted, but it took thirteen years, from 1946 to 1959, to do it. The long delay was caused by many of the events of the Cold War. Both territories became enmeshed in the national politics of anti-communism, radical labour movements, and Arctic policy to resist a Soviet air attack across the polar North. A cadre of statehood supporters emerged to make their case to the nation, including the young Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Ted Stevens of Alaska, both of whom would become two of the most powerful senators in Congress.

Cragg, Kenneth
This study explores the taxing question of whether Christ-Learning should be an ongoing process by presenting examples of the critical and personal learning undertaken by minds exercised with scholarship, ecclesiology, poetry, the novel and sexuality. While the responses to faith in Christ of the seven chosen figures Chr(45) Richard Hooker, John Henry Newman, Robert Browning, William Faulkner, Rudyard Kipling, Friedrich Nietzsche and Oscar Wilde Chr(45) are highly personal, it is the theme of "education", which was at the heart of every Messianic achievement, that throws up confrontations to the orthodox approach to faith. These individuals are eminently representative of biography wrestling with what the New Testament Scripture first understood. Their experiences can be signified in a New Testament play on words: "emathen apathen" Chr(45) "suffering they learned, learning they suffered". 279pp.

Hossain, Dr. Kamal,etc.
This volume reflects the findings of a conference organized in preparation of setting up a national human rights commission and ombudsman institution in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. The meeting assembled experts in the field of the protection and promotion of human rights, and of the problems of countries in transition from a non-democratic system, characterized by gross violations of human rights, towards a democratic system based on the rule of law and respect for human rights. The book analyzes the functioning of national human rights commissions and ombudsman institutions in 23 different countries, by means of country report written in the main by members of these institutions themselves and containing an assessment of their experience. 864pp.
