Edited By Parini, Rossella and Andria, Generoso Lysosomal Storage Diseases : Early Diagnosis and New Treatments : Mariani Foundation Paediatric Neurology 23
France: Editions John Libbey Eurotext, 2010. Cloth/Laminated Boards. Fine/No d/j as Published. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 9782742007790 The last fifteen years have witnessed the extraordinary evolution of basic and clinical research in the field of lysoso-mal storage diseases (LSDs), transforming many of them from dire, untreatable progressive diseases to conditions that allow for possible cure or mitigation. In addition to the presently employed techniques of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and enzyme replacement for a number of lysoso-mal storage diseases, other therapeutic approaches are being developed that are based on different principles. The awareness that the efficacy of treatment is greater if adminis-tered at the first signs of disease or, even better, during the pre-symptomatic phase underscores the urgency of early clinical diagnosis. Efforts are being made to improve the clinical acumen of paediatricians, paediatric surgeons and neurologists, rheumatologists, orthopaedists, and other professionals who come into early contact with children with LSDs. The possibility of including some of these disorders in routine neonatal screening is also a matter of discussion. This volume provides an updated overview of epidemiologic, biochemical, genetic, pathogenetic, and clinical aspects of these disorders and outlines the various treatment options currently available for the LSDs. The need for patients with rare diseases like LSDs to be followed-up in a specialised centre is emphasised in view of the many kinds of multidisciplinary treatment that are needed to improve the quality of life and survival of these children. 184pp. N.B.

Arthur, James Education with Character: The Moral Economy of Schooling
London: Routledge, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. New/No Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0415277787 The establishment of citizenship education as a compulsory subject has recently been accompanied by the government's policy of 'promoting education with character.' Schools are identified as having a crucial role to play in helping to shape and reinforce basic character traits that will ultimately lead to a better society. This radical new policy is explicitly linked to raising academic standards and to the needs of the emerging new economy. This book provides an introduction to character education within the British context by exploring its meanings, understandings, and rationale, through the perspective of a number of academic disciplines. The author examines character education from a philosophical, religious, psychological, political, social and economic perspective to offer a more detailed understanding of character education and what it can offer. He also considers how British schools can implement character education successfully and what lessons we can draw from the American experience. This book will be of interest to academics, researchers, policy makers and teachers with responsibility for citizenship education in their schools. (Book ref. 037771) £99.00

Potts, Patricia (Editor) Inclusion in the City: Selection, Schooling and Community
London: Routledge, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. New/No Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0415268036 Inclusion in the City explores inclusion and exclusion in the context of policy and practice in one English city - Birmingham. Here, a commitment to redressing the inequalities experienced by many learners has been inhibited by difficulty in securing agreement to a definite policy for inclusion and, consequently, in sustaining initiatives for strengthening participation in community comprehensive education. Grounded in an understanding of inclusion as a political and moral project, the book presents a range of perspectives from policymakers and practitioners. Detailed case studies, based on research specially undertaken for this book, relate inclusion to key issues in contemporary education such as; the effects of selection by attainment; faith schools and their communities; single sex education and inclusive schools; participation in further education; and social mobility. Insightful, thought provoking and original, Inclusion in the City detaches processes of inclusion and exclusion from the language of educational reform. In so doing it highlights links between participation in education and poverty, gender and cultural background, as well as the absence of a link between urban and educational renewal.

Lowenfeld, Margaret Play in Childhood
Bath: Cedric Chivers, 1969. First Thus. Hardcover. New/New. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0521413311 Dr Margaret Lowenfeld was a paediatrician who became a pioneer of child psychology and psychotherapy. Her interest in how children grow and develop and think began when, recently qualified as a doctor, she was involved in relief work in her ancestral Poland after the First World War and wondered what enabled some children to survive and flourish despite their traumatic experiences. Early in her career she engaged in medical research (in breast-feeding and in childhood rheumatism) and she retained a strong belief in the need for research and evaluation in whatever field she was engaged. There is at present a worldwide resurgence of interest in the meaning and importance of children's play. Dr Margaret Lowenfeld was one of the leading figures in child psychology in the years between the two world wars, and her ideas have profoundly influenced our thinking about play in childhood. She recorded these ideas and described her methods in one major book, Play in Childhood, first published in 1935. Many of Lowenfeld's techniques described in this book are still available and widely used today: the Lowenfeld Mosaic Test, the Lowenfeld World Technique, Poleidoblocs, and Kaleidoblocs. Lowenfeld's original accounts of these techniques and the thoughts behind them are now available once again to all working with young children, and this book should be of great interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, primary school teachers, and research workers in the field of human development.
