This book portrays teenage drinking, not as a symptom of pathology, but as a perfectly normal developmental phase within the context of the home environment. Drinking is a predominantly social behaviour and the family is seen as a major agent of socialization. The authors have therefore explored family dynamics and the influence which the home environment has upon adolescent drinking to come up with a new theoretical model. A major feature of this approach is the interaction of ideas from family life psychology and human geography. The authors present a typology of domestic regimes illustrated by case studies of boundary enforcement and transgression. The general theme of boundary transgression, applied here to both the psychosocial environment and built form, represents an interesting new theoretical perspective. The integration of these two fields is an innovation which should stimulate further interdisciplinary work in adolescence and addiction research. Adolescent Drinking and Family Life will be invaluable to researchers and practitioners in adolescence, family dynamics, and alcohol as well as any social scientist with an interest in the link between behaviour and the home environment. This new approach has important implications for health education and for interventions concerned with adolescent alcohol use.

The Yellow Brick Road Gang, otherwise known as Metaphysical Misadventures in the Search for Enlightenment, is a circle of women who came together as a book club. Together they began a spiritual search -- and throughout the last eight years each woman has arrived at the realization that after all their searching for knowledge they've come full circle. The only constant is change and the only thing they know for certain is they know nothing. Anything is possible. Isabel turns fifty the day after the seventh anniversary of her husband's death. She's convinced she will never find love again -- and the Gang is convinced that all she needs to do is start taking some of her own great advice. When she meets Joshua--a younger man who wants to give her lessons on love and metaphysics--she finally gives in, heedless of the danger to her heart. But Joshua is both more and less than what he appears to be, and Isabel has to come to terms with herself -- and with Joshua's wonderful and strange provenance. The only way is through the yellow brick road -- which leads Isabel right back home, to the miracles within herself.

The book is part memoir, adventure, travel book, multi-cultural manual and window into a marriage and family. It records experiences that made Yvonne and Victors lives unique by describing happenings that were poignant and rewarding. It starts with Yvonnes early trips to Italy as a teenager, and then her return to live there, as a mother with three small children while Victor was off working in remote eastern Turkey. Escaping for three weeks allowed him to write about discovering with Yvonne the charms of Western Europe. Ten years later, Victors part-time assignment to explore the Italian aerospace industry led to other travel adventures, and a six-week family odyssey that wandered through Italy, Switzerland, France and England. Years later, he became a frequent traveler to NATO countries, and his air mile awards allowed Yvonne and he to share many pleasing adventures. His career path next led to being appointed to a four-nation consortium, and they moved and lived in Munich for four years. Their lives were then filled with many exciting activities, as they learned to live and enjoy life as Europeans.

Journey of a Lifetime was Gillian Tindall’s first collection of short stories since The China Egg, which was published in 1982. Eight stories relate to travel and/or foreign lands, while the ninth is about a foreigner in England. The title story, ostensibly very much of the real world, gradually reveals a darker and odder side, as does In A Past Life, originally read on Radio 4. All twelve stories of the collection, while they vary greatly in mood and treatment, explore in one way or another the subject of identity and memory – with wit, high intelligence and the confidence of a writer whose first book of short stories, Dances With Death, met with universal acclaim on its publication in 1973.
