Burundi has recently emerged from twelve years of devastating civil war. Its economy has been destroyed and hundreds and thousands of people have been killed. In this book, the voices of ordinary Burundians are heard for the first time. Farmers, artisans, traders, mothers, soldiers and students talk about the past and the future, war and peace, their hopes for a better life and their relationships with each other and the state. Young men, in particular, often seen as the cause of violence and war, talk about the difficulties of living up to standards of masculinity in an impoverished and war-torn society. Weaving a rich tapestry, Peter Uvin pitches the ideas and aspirations of people on the ground against the theory and assumptions often made by the international development and peace-building agencies and organisations. In doing this, he illuminates both shared goals and misunderstandings. This groundbreaking book on conflict and society in Africa will have profound repercussions for development across the world.

Violence Torture And Memory In Sri Lanka

Drawing on original ethnographic field-research conducted primarily with former guerrilla insurgents in southern and central Sri Lanka, this book analyses the memories and narratives of people who have perpetrated political violence. It explores how violence is negotiated and lived with in the aftermath, and its implications for the self and social relationships from the perspectives of those who have inflicted it. The book sheds ethnographic light on a largely overlooked and little-understood conflict that took place within the majority Sinhala community in the late 1980s, known locally as the Terror (Bheeshanaya). It illuminates the ways in which the ethical charge carried by violence seeps into the fabric of life in the aftermath, and discusses that for those who have perpetrated violence, the mediation of its memory is ethically tendentious and steeped in the moral, carrying important implications for notions of the self and for the negotiation of sociality in the present. Providing an important understanding of the motivations, meanings, and consequences of violence, the book is of interest to students and scholars of South Asia, Political Science, Trauma Studies and War Studies.

Large print edition of Sophia Grace's original book: After the Violence. Whether you personally experienced abuse, have a family member caught by violence, or have dedicated your life to serve this fragile part of our society, this story will plead with you, the reader, to enter into the emotional and confusing mess of leaving domestic violence. Sophia Grace displays a unique ability to weave between a variety of writing styles as she illuminates the pain, courage, and dedication it takes to rebuild a family after the original violence has ended. She covers topics rarely seen from a mother's perspective: child trauma, adolescent suicide and depression, struggles with autism, parenting, intimacy after rape, pornography, police intervention, spirituality and religion, and secondary trauma. As an autistic, single mother, her interpretation of life can bring a bit of levity to an otherwise overwhelming and painful situation. After the Violence is a "must read" for professionals working with abuse victims and survivors. Sophia brings her readers to their knees in tears, then makes them laugh, and finally rekindles their commitment to serve.

This workbook is a strong realistic starting place for current victims and survivors of domestic violence that are in a mind state of hopelessness and defeat. This book was written to activate your inner warrior, promote healing, process the deep-seated trauma of abuse, and find the necessary steps to recovery within themselves. From my experience as a survivor I remember asking myself if I could make it through my 30 day stay at the safe-house shelter. I remember there were days I wanted to go back to my abuser because it seemed impossible that I could really start my life over. Though the odds seemed slim I pressed through day by day. Each day I got stronger and began to embrace the belief that I had it in me to create a new life. In just 30 days my mind, my spirit, and my body was transformed. I left the shelter ready to take on the world and my life has never been the same. In this workbook I share with you what I did to start and stay committed to never returning. This book includes inspirational words and exercises that will help you to evaluate yourself, the effect of the abuse, and provide clarity about your situation and how you too can go from 30 days to a lifetime of an abuse free life. These exercises will prove to be instrumental in the possibility of you not returning to your abuser. In every victim lies a special, strong version of themselves. I encourage you to complete this book to its entirety and don't just stop at 30 days. Keep going until you break chains and are free from every toxic factor that held you bound in that relationship. A conqueror lives in you. In 30 days I guarantee you will start seeing that conqueror in your reflection. This book will meet you right where you are. In that feeling of hopelessness, defeat, and in that condition of depression and confusion my prayers are that this book encourages you to begin to see things in a more positive perception. Day by day look forward to your cup being filled until it overflows. Please refer to the website for additional information.

Given the significant investment HUD has made in transitional housing (TH) programs since enactment of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assist. Act, it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs. TH has been an important element of HUD¿s efforts to respond to the housing needs of homeless families and individuals through a continuum of care. This study examines whether TH makes a difference in the lives of the families it serves and whether it is more effective for some homeless people than others. This study follows 179 families in 36 TH programs within five communities for one year after leaving the program. TH programs, and certain characteristics of the programs, were found to be associated with positive outcomes. Illustrations.
