The evening, when time and patience are at their shortest, can be the worst part of the day to throw a meal together. And then there are the unexpected mouths to feed: a friend with a new baby, an elderly family member, a couple of uninvited ravenous teenagers. Enter the Dinner Ladies, the fearsomely organised duo bringing delicious peace to busy households. They are the mistresses of stocked-up fridges and freezers thanks to a wide-ranging repertoire of nourishing, reliable make-ahead meals. Family-friendly favourites dominate: there are spiced slow-cooked lamb shanks; warming curries; veggie-focused 'thinner dinners'; and easy desserts that may not make it as far as the table, such as apricot, raspberry and coconut crumble or chocolate mint honey pots. Welcome the Dinner Ladies to your kitchen and reclaim your evenings.

Because women in ancient Japan enjoyed high status, they were well-educated and reasonably independent. They also produced much of the country's best literature. Three of these amazing ladies wrote these diaries, among them the highly skilled writer Murasaki Shikibu (ca. 973-1025 a.d.). A lady-in-waiting to the Japanese Empress, she became very adept at observing the daily activities and attitudes of the upper classes. Her diary is a remarkable record of events staged with rare and exquisite taste. The Sarashina Diary, filled with an appreciation of nature, begins with a nine-year-old girl's dreams and ends with the grown woman's account of her husband's funeral (1009-1059 a.d.). Izumi Shikibu's diary is a delicately written work, with poetic thoughts characteristic of the lady's shy reserve. Brimming with poetry and understated social observations, all three provide an extraordinary glimpse of court life in old Japan. Unabridged republication of the edition originally published by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston and New York, 1920. 2 color illustrations. 12 black-and-white illustrations. Appendix.

First published in 1981, this work is based on the author’s research in the playgrounds of two Oxford schools. It describes the order amongst the apparent chaos by relating the playtime activities – the games, rhymes and taunts of five-to-ten-year-olds in first and middle schools – to children’s goals, problems and solutions. It shows how children learn and display in the playground a remarkably complex set of social skills and the study clearly demonstrates the importance of playtime for preparing a child to cope in the adult world.

We have all heard stories where somebody heard somebody say that they did such and such and the story seems so outlandish it can't be true. Well here is a lifetime spent living some of those stories. The reader will be transported 600 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean and experience the horror of realising that the helicopter, your only means of getting back to your ship, has just inexplicably flown off over the horizon leaving you floating in a pond where you are now considered food. Or trying to cut your way out of a fishing net that is pressing you down onto the unforgiving shell of a 2000lb WW2 German bomb in visibility that is so bad you can't tell the difference between dark and light, up or down or even which way the surface of the water is. Climbing down a cliff to recover a hand grenade from under a dead body that has been lying on top of it for 3 months. Then moving a bomb across a building site that is so sensitive spirit levels had to be taped to the top of it to keep it level so it won't detonate, while only 30m away the UK firework championship contenders have laid out over 80 tons of fireworks in preparation for a three day display. Only three hours before this task began he was dealing with a hand grenade in a shop that was full of gas after the resident had torn the gas metre off the wall because of a dispute with his landlord. This is the stuff films are made of only films like this would clearly have to be put in the fiction genre, surely people don't do this kind of thing for real? Mark D Holroyd has spent 24 years as a Clearance Diver in the British Royal Navy. His stories are a reflection on a life spent in situations most people would find hard to comprehend, from a diving course where at least 60% of those attempting the course are expected to fail. To escaping from sunken helicopters in complete darkness, this is life on the edge as part of a small elite group of men who make up this secretive part of the Royal Navy. When things get bad and the situation is dire humour is sometimes all that keeps men sane.

In 2001, The Guardian launched a competition called The School I'd Like, in which young people were asked to imagine their ideal school. This vibrant, groundbreaking book presents material drawn from that competition, offering a unique snapshot of perceptions of today's schools by those who matter most - the pupils. The book is wonderfully illuminated by children's essays, stories, poems, pictures and plans. Placing their views in the centre of the debate, it provides an evaluation of the democratic processes involved in teaching and learning by: identifying consistencies in children's expressions of how they wish to learn highlighting particular sites of 'disease' in the education system today illustrating how the built environment is experienced by today's children posing questions about the reconstruction of teaching and learning for the twenty-first century. This book offers a powerful new perspective on school reform and is essential reading for all those involved in education and childhood studies, including teachers, advisors, policy-makers, academics, and anyone who believes that children's voices should not be ignored.
