  • The Kings & Queens of Britain

    Cath Senker

    Product Code: CBGNW
    Hardback
    Who was the first king of England? Did Henry I assassinate his brother? How did 'Bloody Mary' reinstate Roman Catholicism? For more than 1,000 years the British monarchy has dramatically shaped national and international history. Kings and queens have conquered territory, imposed religious change and extracted taxation, each with their own motivations and ambitions. In this beautifully illustrated book, Cath Senker delves into the extraordinary history of the British monarchy and its host of kings, queens and pretenders. There have been benevolent rulers, violent ones, religious fanatics, brilliant economists, masters of diplomacy and the power hungry. But whether they have abused their power or used it for good, each monarch has played a part in the rich tapestry of British history, coping with both international and civil wars, rebellions and criticism. The Kings & Queens of Britain introduces this fascinating thousand-year history, providing rich biographical detail of Britain's remarkable monarchs.

  • Far From Home: Refugees and migrants fleeing war, persecution and poverty

    Cath Senker

    Paperback
    A sensitive and accessible account of the refugee crisis facing millions around the world. What if you had to leave your home and you could never go back? What do you think that would be like? For millions of Syrian and Iraqi citizens (and for people from many other nations around the world), these are the question they face. The current, desperate situation in their homelands and the mass migrations from the Middle East is both shocking to us, and sadly nothing new. Far From Home addresses the clear need for a balanced and informative book on this complex topic. It examines the root causes of mass migrations from both a historical and current perspective. Historical sources and first-hand accounts are used to explore racism, religion, life in refugee camps and the challenges migrant and refugees face on arrival in new lands, alongside the response of host countries. The book will also look at the difficult and dangerous journeys people make in an attempt to reach a safe haven and life in refugee camps, with the constant struggle to access shelter, warmth, food, medicine and education. Designed to be accessible to both children and adults, this book is an open and balanced tool for opening discussions around these sensitive issues. For children aged 11+. Author Cath Senker is an expert on writing in this area. She has housed refugees in her own home and is active in helping to provide education to those arriving in Britain. Winner of The Society of Authors ALCS Educational Writers' Award, 2018.

  • Fierce Floods

    Cath Senker

    Product Code: BAAQZ
    Paperback
    Extreme weather dominates news bulletins around the world. From tsunamis to superstorms, floods to wild fires, natural disasters affect people globally on a daily basis. Floods, and their deadly consequences, have hit the headlines over the past decade as countries around the world have been affected by serious flooding. But why are these occurrences becoming more frequent, and more severe? And what happens to the affected communities after disaster has struck? Planet in Peril: Fierce Floods answers these questions and many more, including when and why flooding occurs, and how technology is helping people to prepare for it. The book looks at three of these natural disasters from recent years in detail: the Bangladesh floods of 2012, Mississippi flooding in the USA in 2011 and the flash floods in Russia in 2012. Comprehensive case studies cover when and where the floods struck, the immediate impact of the disaster, the flood damage, the long-term effects, the global aid efforts and the rebuilding and regeneration of affected communities. Eyewitness panels give firsthand accounts of the disaster from flood victims, emergency service personnel, aid workers and scientists working to combat the effects of natural disasters. Infographic elements display statistics about each flood in a clear, concise and visual way. Learn about the preparations made for floods: what protective mechanisms and flood warning systems are in place, the emergency drills people must learn, and how communities are evacuated in the event of a disaster. Find out about the disaster recovery effort immediately after each event, how aid reaches affected areas, and where it comes from. See how communities fare in the immediate aftermath, how they cope with damage to infrastructure and homes, lack of basic necessities and, in some cases, the loss of friends or relatives. Then find out how they cope long-term, deal with the economic impact, and regenerate. Discover if climate change and global warming are increasing the impact and severity of flooding, and how research is being done, and technology developed, to combat it. See how flood warning systems and evacuation drills can dramatically improve people's chances of survival, and learn about some natural solutions, such as flood plains, that reduce the impact of floods. Planet in Peril: Fierce Floods is ideal for children age 9+, for geography and science projects, or simply for anyone interested in finding out the background behind the 'extreme weather' news reports. Floods are not the only natural disaster our planet faces, find out about tsunamis, super storms and wild fires in other titles in the series.

  • The Dalai Lama

    Cath Senker

    Product Code: AYJFJ
    Paperback
    In 1937, a vision led the high lamas of Tibet to an old house in the mountains, with a turquoise roof. Here lived 2-year-old Lhamo Dhondrub, who would go on to become the 14th Dalai Lama. But how did this toddler grow into one of the world's most important religious figures? And why has he been forced into exile? The Dalai Lama looks at his extraordinary story, from his education by monks, deep in the Tibetan mountains, to how he became leader of Tibet aged just 15. The Chinese invasion of Tibet, that forced him to flee his homeland, and begin a new life and government in exile in India, is explained, as is the plight of ordinary Tibetans. The Buddhist faith, and exactly what it means to be a Buddhist, is explored, as is the role it plays in the lives of people around the world. The book also looks at the Dalai Lama's work as a teacher and a leader, and at some of the issues he campaigns for - particularly his environmental activism, and his work to promote religious cooperation and interfaith dialogue.

  • Stories of Women in the 1960s

    Cath Senker

    Product Code: ARGJJ
    Paperback 11 years +
    In the 1960s, a woman's place was seen as being in the home. She even found it hard to make a big purchase if a man wasn't with her. African-American women faced racism daily and were given low-paid, exhausting jobs. It was time for women to stand up for equal rights and equal pay. These are the stories of four trailblazers who achieved amazing things in difficult circumstances: Betty Freidan protested at the Miss America pageant against judging women on appearance. Ella Baker helped organize Freedom Schools, where black history was taught for the first time. Barbara Castle was one of the few women members of Parliament and fought for equal pay. Mary Quant showed women they could dress for themselves and not men. Many of the rights women have today are down to their actions. They helped change society's image of women forever.
