At a loose end after college, Ellis Barstow drifts back to his hometown and takes a job as a reconstructionist – investigating and recreating the details of fatal car accidents. Ellis forms a bond with his boss John Boggs, who believes that if two cars meeting at an intersection can be called an accident, then anything can – where we live, what we do, even who we fall in love with. For Ellis these things are certainly no accident and he harbours two secrets of his own. The car crash that killed his half-brother is a memory that still haunts him, and his feelings for John’s wife threaten to blow apart the men’s lives. As Ellis tries to make sense of his own life, the story’s momentum builds to a desperate race towards confrontation, reconciliation and survival.

Coolly and compellingly narrated by a man dedicated to the examination of other people's pasts and the reconstruction of their lives, this is a brilliant, dark and gripping new novel that surpasses even Hart's masterpiece, Damage. A psychiatrist, Jack is divorced. His own past and that of his beautiful, enigmatic sister Kate certainly bear scrutiny. Then he gets a phone call telling him that their family house in Ireland is for sale - and when he finally returns to the house, terrible truths emerge about what happened there years ago in a family tragedy that left indelible marks on those who survived it. The facts have been reconstructed many times, but the shocking truth has not.

This handbook is prepared for the daily, practical needs of those who are involved in traffic accident analysis, investigation, and reconstruction, whether they be in the training, police, private, or legal professions. It also meets international requirements in that all formulae and explanations are provided in both the English (U.S.) and metric (S.I.) measurement systems. In all cases, the two systems are dealt with separately so as to avoid any unnecessary confusion. Provided also are many tables and constants relating one system to the other so that those who may normally work under one system but use reference materials in the other will have a readily accessible means of making any necessary conversions. After an introductory chapter describes the various symbols used in traffic accident investigation and reconstruction, subsequent chapters include very comprehensive formulae required in problem-solving involving acceleration and acceleration factors; center of mass; drag factor and coefficient of friction; slide-to-stop speed; yaw, sideslip, or critical curve speeds; acceleration, distance and time calculations; momentum speed; combined speeds, and distance and time calculations. Additionally, there are various other formulae and mathematical, velocity, and conversion tables presented. All 160 formulae and their various uses are set out in a uniform, easy-to-read, and understandable format. Whether in law, law enforcement, or private or insurance investigation, this book provides traffic accident investigators and reconstructionists with the data they need to perform their job accurately and efficiently.

This book examines the relationship between contemporary forms of critical theory and social reconstructionism, as they relate and contribute to the construction of a radical theory of education. It illustrates many of the persistent issues, problems, and goals of radical educational reform, including the importance of developing a language of possibility, utopian thought, and the critical competence necessary to reveal and deconstruct forms of oppression. Stanley perceptively and clearly reexamines new challenges posed to various forms of critical pedagogy (including reconstructionism) by the development of postmodern and poststructuralist theory, focusing on the connections and continuities between them.
