Mindfulness represents the most significant shift in the world of counselling and psychotherapy within the last decade. Mindful approaches have been hailed as the 'third wave' of cognitive behavioural-therapy and mindfulness has been recommended – and found to be effective at treating – a wide variety of mental health issues. There has been a proliferation of popular self-help books based on mindfulness approaches, and much debate between western mindfulness practitioners and Buddhist scholars about the ways in which mindful theory and practice is being adapted for western audiences. To date, however, there has been relatively little research or writing considering the potentials of mindfulness for the arena of sexual and relationship therapy. This book aims to address this by bringing together many of the key practitioners and researchers who are working in this area. The book presents a range of perspectives on what mindful theory and practice has to offer to our understandings of, and work with, sex and relationships. This book was originally published as a special issue of Sexual and Relationship Therapy.

More than two million medical students, doctors and other health professionals from around the globe have owned a copy of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine since it was first published. Today’s readers rely on this beautifully illustrated text to provide up-to-date detail of contemporary medical practice, presented in a style that is concise and yet easy to read. Davidson’s provides the factual knowledge required to practise medicine, explaining it in the context of underlying principles, basic science and research evidence, and shows how to apply this knowledge to the management of patients who present with problems rather than specific diseases. The book has won numerous prizes including being highly commended in the British Medical Association book awards. Davidson’s global perspective is enhanced by the input of an international team of authors and a distinguished International Advisory Board from 17 countries. Building on the foundations laid down by its original editor, Davidson’s remains one of the world’s leading and most respected textbooks of medicine. The underlying principles of medicine are described concisely in the first part of the book, and the detailed practice of medicine within each sub-specialty is described in later system-based chapters. Most chapters begin with a two-page overview of the important elements of the clinical examination, including a manikin to illustrate the key steps in the examination of the relevant system. A practical, problem-based clinical approach is described in the ‘Presenting Problems’ sections, to complement the detailed descriptions of each disease. The text is extensively illustrated, with over 1000 diagrams, clinical photographs, and radiology and pathology images. 1350 text boxes present information in a way suitable for revision, including 150 clinical evidence boxes summarising the results of systematic reviews and randomised controlled trials and 65 ’In Old Age’ boxes highlighting important aspects of medical practice in the older population. A combined index and glossary of medical acronyms contains over 10 000 subject entries. The contents can also be searched comprehensively as part of the online access to the whole book on the StudentConsult platform. Access over 500 self-testing questions with answers linked to the book’s content for further reading. The text uses both SI and non-SI units to make it suitable for readers throughout the globe. A new chapter specifically on Stroke Disease recognises the emergence of Stroke Medicine as a distinct clinical and academic discipline. A rationalisation of the 1350 boxes used throughout the book gives a simpler and clearer presentation of the various categories. New ‘In Adolescence’ boxes recognise the fact that many chronic disorders begin in childhood and become the responsibility of physicians practising adult medicine. These boxes acknowledge the overlap ‘transitional’ phase and highlight the key points of importance when looking after young people. The regular introduction of new authors and editors maintains the freshness of each new edition. On this occasion Dr Ian Penman has joined the editorial team and 18 new authors bring new experience and ideas to the content and presentation of the textbook. An expanded International Advisory Board of 38 members includes new members from several different countries.

Nagrađivana nigerijska spisateljica Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (1977.) zasjala je na svjetskoj književnoj sceni romanom Polovica žutog sunca u kojem prikazuje građanski rat u Nigeriji. Amerikana, njezin treći i jednako snažan roman, ocrtava život u poslijeratnoj Nigeriji, ali i u SAD-u i Velikoj Britaniji. Roman je dobio nagradu američkog Nacionalnog udruženja književnih kritičara (kojom su svojedobno ovjenčane i nobelovke Alice Munro i Toni Morrison). Amerikana ponajprije prati sudbinu mladog para ̶ Ifemelu i Obinzea. Njihova Nigerija shrvana je korupcijom i siromaštvom, a ljudi bježe iz zemlje, i to ne zbog gladi ili rata, već zbog „letargije uzrokovane nedostatkom izbora“. Samosvjesna Ifemelu odlazi na studij u Ameriku gdje proživljava neuspjehe i pobjede, nove ljubavne veze i prekide, ali stalno osjeća težinu onoga o čemu u Nigeriji nikad nije razmišljala: svoje rase. Obinze ne uspijeva dobiti američku vizu i odlazi u Englesku gdje radi ilegalno i na kraju je uhićen. Trinaest godina poslije Obinze živi u Nigeriji, obogatio se i zasnovao obitelj, a Ifemelu u SAD-u piše duhovit blog o rasnim temama koji joj donosi slavu i stipendiju na Princetonu. Prekretnica romana njezina je odluka da se vrati u Afriku. Nakon toliko godina odvojenosti i promjena Ifemelu i Obinze sastaju se u naizgled drugačijoj Nigeriji... Amerikana je roman o snazi prve ljubavi i mladenačkim snovima, životu u emigraciji, političkim previranjima, američkom snu. Ona je bogata tapiserija puna živopisnih likova koja prikazuje dva svijeta, onaj nigerijski i američki. Iako progovara o tome što znači biti crne boje kože u 21. stoljeću na Zapadu i ispisuje snažnu priču o rasi i identitetu, Amerikana je u osnovi knjiga o težnji svakoga od nas da u ovome razlomljenom, napuknutom i često okrutnom svijetu nađemo svoje mjesto i smisao. „Neke knjige pripovijedaju velike priče, neke mijenjaju naš pogled na svijet. Amerikana uspijeva u jednom i drugom.“ The Guardian

Encounters between Christian and Hindu or Buddhist monastics have been occurring for several decades, most notably signalled in the 1998 book The Gethsemani Encounter. What is special about this new book, the fruit of a weeklong intermonastic dialogue held at New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, California, is the inclusion (in addition to Zen Buddhism and Hinduism) of the Chinese traditions of Taoism, Confucianism, and Chan Buddhism. The themes "purity of heart" and "contemplation" are central to the monastic quest and also universal, offering a meeting point that is shared by all the traditions involved.Contributors include: Bruno Barnhart, OSB Cam, Daniel Consiglio, OSB Cam, Francis H.
