In recent years the notion of parenting and parenthood have increasingly come under examination from the media and professionals and, in particular, government and politicians. More and more, parents are being held to account by society for their failure to deliver the sort of citizens it wants. But what are parents supposed to be doing? Are there some people that are inherently unfit to be parents and does there exist a body of knowledge that defines fit parenting? Who's fit to be a parent? covers this highly topical and important subject in a stimulating and accessible way that cuts across numerous professional disciplines and opens up the boundaries between professional and personal expertise on parenting. It is essential reading for any professional or student of social work and social policy, those working in the voluntary services concerned with the family, social policy makers and for anyone interested in understanding what it means to be a parent today.

The Law of Evidence in the District of Columbia has been a practice staple in the District of Columbia courts for more than 30 years. It is an invaluable tool for analyzing threshold evidence issues during trial preparation, and for finding quick answers to evidence questions at trial. It is particularly useful to practitioners who appear in both the local and federal courts of the District of Columbia. Each Federal Rule of Evidence is set forth at the outset of a section. Since Federal Rules are not applicable in the District of Columbia, the treatise next provides a concise comment preparing the particular Federal Rule with local practice. The treatise then presents case annotations showing the development and current state of the law in the local courts. Given the influence of its pronouncements, case annotations of the United States Supreme Court are also included. An Historical Appendix includes legislative history, as appropriate, for each Federal Rule of Evidence included in Chapters 1 through 11.

Supporting Children and Families gathers together the lessons learned from perhaps the largest scale social experiment ever undertaken in England - Sure Start, the programme designed to improve the emotional development, health and education of children. It boils down the huge amount of knowledge and experience generated by the Sure Start programmes and local evaluation studies, with chapters encompassing child development and healthcare, partnership working with existing local services, parental employment and supporting families with young children, reaching out to marginalised groups and strengthening communities. In addition to summarizing the findings of numerous innovative projects, contributors draw on their experiences of the successes and challenges to offer advice for those engaged in current and future practice. Each chapter concludes with `three lessons for Children's Centres'. With its strong focus on practice implications, this book is indispensable reading for practitioners working in health, social and educational services for children and families, as well as students or researchers, and policymakers in these fields.

This innovative work provides a state-of-the-art overview of current thinking about the development of brand strategy. Unlike other books on branding, it approaches successful brand strategy from both the producer and consumer perspectives. The Science and Art of Branding makes clear distinctions among the producer's intentions, external brand realities, and consumer's brand perceptions--and explains how to fit them all together to build successful brands. Co-author Sandra Moriarty is also the author of the leading Principles of Advertising textbook, and she and Giep Franzen have filled this volume with practical learning tools for scholars and students of marketing and marketing communications, as well as actual brand managers. The book explains theoretical concepts and illustrates them with real-life examples that include case studies and findings from large-scale market research. Every chapter opens with a mini-case history, and boxed inserts featuring quotes from experts appear throughout the book. The Science and Art of Branding also goes much more deeply than other works into the core concept of brand equity, employing new measurement systems only developed over the last few years.
