    Sweet Distress

    How our love affair with feelings has fuelled the current mental health crisis (and what we can do about it)

    by Gillian Bridge

    Author and psycholinguistic consultant Gillian Bridge delves into a range of problems which seem to be frequently cited as sources of mental distress. These include stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, body image, eating disorders, social media, substance abuse, behavioural disorders, academic pressures and bullying. She explores how these issues have led to seemingly insurmountable emotional problems and challenges some of the things that have contributed to turning life events that may otherwise have been little more than nuisances or inconveniences into sources of genuine psychic pain. Packed with realistic and effective takeaway strategies, Sweet Distress challenges under-researched but over-promoted ideology and shares evidence-based help and advice for anyone wanting to improve the mental health of those they care about.

    The Botanical City

    by With the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

    A modern take on a classic 18th-century book of botanical illustrations of London’s wild plants. The same plants grow across Europe. Cities are abundant with nature, so why is it that we fail to notice the greenery that surrounds our busy lives? And isn’t now the time, with the growing ecological crisis, for those of us in cities to reconnect to nature? This is a beautifully produced interpretation of a rare 18th century book, Floral Londinensis, which set out to record every wild plant in London and which remains surprisingly relevant. Working with Kew horticulture expert Hélèna Dove and acclaimed author Harry Adès, we have handpicked the 75 most fascinating plants from the original and included highly faithful reproductions of ultra-detailed illustrations set alongside a new set of unusual facts, ancient folklore, contemporary medicinal uses, delicious recipes and more.

    The Class Ceiling

    Why it pays to be priviledged

    by Sam Friedman & Daniel Laurison

    This important best-selling book takes readers behind the closed doors of elite employers to reveal how class affects who gets to the top. Friedman and Laurison show that a powerful ‘class pay gap’ exists in elite occupations. Even when those from working-class backgrounds make it into prestigious jobs, they earn, on average, 16% less than colleagues from privileged backgrounds. But why is this the case? Drawing on 175 interviews across four case studies - television, accountancy, architecture, and acting – they explore the complex barriers facing the upwardly mobile. This is a rich, ambitious book that demands we take seriously not just the glass but also the class ceiling.

    The English at play

    by Orlando Gili

    Festivals, football, fancy dress... and opera: a playful photo-study of how the English relax. It was the UK’s decision to leave the EU that made London born photographer Orlando Gili question (and then capture) who the English really are. In a nation full of such contradiction and complexity, Gili found some answers in how people choose to spend their leisure time. From horse racing to wartime reanactments, carnivals to clubs, from ancient and quintessential rituals (medieval village bottle-kicking competitions) to the more modern (Santa pub crawls) this book reveals that which unites a divided nation: the relentless desire for organised fun.

    What's Killing Your Culture?

    Why employees can lose their mojo – and how to get it back

    by Helen Holmes

    The employees of bigger organisations have lost their mojo. Burnout, bureaucracy and that lurking sense of Sunday night dread are the standard markers of corporate employment. But what’s going so badly wrong? Bigger organisations face specific challenges. Efforts to instil a consistent culture are diluted and constant acquisitions and mergers introduce layers of complexity and new processes. The pace of change is relentless. So what can be done? This book describes the ten toxic trends of big organisations, including information overload, short-termism and the perils of layers of bureaucracy. The book offers not only an empathetic tour of a familiar world, but also rays of hope – it’s not impossible to make small changes to drive a better working culture for all.

    White Privilege

    The myth of a post-racial society

    by Kalwant Bhopal

    Despite claims that we now live in a post-racial society, race continues to disadvantage those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. The idea that we live in a ‘post-racial’ society is challenged and there is an ambition to show the absent presence of race which is a really important issue. Kalwant Bhopal has a clear argument – that neoliberalism supports and perpetuates white privilege and she explores how neoliberal policy making has increased, rather than decreased, discrimination faced by those from non-white backgrounds. She also shows how certain types of whiteness are not privileged; Gypsies and Travellers, for example, remain marginalised and disadvantaged in society. Drawing on topical debates and supported by empirical data, this important book examines the impact of race on wider issues of inequality and difference in society.

    Zest for Learning

    Developing curious learners who relish real-world challenges

    by Bill Lucas and Ellen Spencer

    Zest for Learning examines how schools can enrich their pupils’ learning both within and beyond school. This could be encouraged through, for example, greater engagement with sports and the arts, by collaborating with external bodies or by working with libraries, museums, faith groups and environmental associations. In this book Bill and Ellen offer a framework for zest: a practical guide for teachers, underpinned by theory. They connect the co-curriculum with the formal curriculum, building both theoretical and practical confidence in the kinds of pedagogies which work well. The authors have infused the book with a wide range of ideas for getting pupils to love learning so much that they will be able to learn whatever they want to throughout their lives
