              Geology is everywhere in our daily lives. We are surrounded by materials and resources extracted from the Earth, our climate is changing at alarming rates, and hazards due to Earth's processes are leading to major catastrophes. We will be reliant upon a population of informed cit...izens to make and vote for policies that protect our Earth, and change that will keep our planet habitable. Therefore, understanding our Earth has never been more important. Understanding Earth leads the way by fully integrating the study of climate science into the core intro geology curriculum. Through strategic placement of the climate science chapters at the beginning of the geomorphology content, we offer a text that places our changing climate as a key force shaping the rest of our discussion on Earth's surficial processes.

              Trumped: Emerging Powers in a Post-American World challenges Western liberal presumptions that without America as the global policeman and financier, there would be chaos and collapse in the world or a takeover by totalitarian China. It argues that there is no need to despair abo...ut Trump's self-goal of undermining American leadership around the world because capable rising powers in different regions can fill the vacuum left by Trump's abandonment and provide order, peace, security and prosperity in their respective areas. Readers get insights into the domestic structural pressures motivating Trump's trademark foreign policy insurgency and the divisions within his 'two-track presidency' between 'nationalists' and 'globalists' which are profoundly impacting on Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa. The author provides an alternative vision from the lens of powerful developing countries by arguing that the solution to a withdrawing and isolationist US is not a return to US interventionism or a China-dominated new global order but multiple 'post-American' regionally based orders.

              In an age where more British people believe in aliens than trust our politicians, Dorothy Byrne asks the question: what went wrong and how can our trust in democracy and public life be regained? In this scintillating essay, nothing and no one escapes Byrne's razor-sharp wit as sh...e takes on the politicians avoiding rigorous journalistic scrutiny, explores the pitfalls of impartiality, imagines what Plato say to Trump - and calls out plenty of sexist bastards along the way. This is a ferocious, frank, and often wildly funny attempt to separate the truth from the lies at a time of national crisis.

              The Definitive Biography featuring an introductory interview with LL Cool J and epilogue from Paul Rosenberg, Eminem's manager In 1999, a former dishwasher from Detroit became the most influential music artist in the world. Eminem's dexterity, wit and honesty turned him into one ...of the biggest-selling artists of all time and changed the landscape of music and pop culture as we know it. Then, in 2006, at the height of his fame, he all but disappeared. Beset by non-stop controversies, bewildering fame, a debilitating drug problem and personal tragedies, he withdrew from the world. Over the next decade, he struggled and suffered through what he would call his wilderness years but eventually managed to get sober, get clean and get, triumphantly, back to the top. Not Afraid is the definitive account of that story. In this revelatory book, which follows on directly from the bestselling Whatever You Say I Am, rock journalist Anthony Bozza chronicles the personal and spiritual growth of one of music's most enduring and enigmatic artists through the insights of those closest to him, including Royce da 5'9 , LL Cool J, Mr Porter, Paul Rosenberg and other friends and associates. Capturing Eminem's toughest years in his own words, Not Afraid is a uniquely intimate portrait of an incredibly private man known by many to be the greatest rapper alive.

              Terrorism and radicalisation are increasingly dominating sociological, political and cultural concerns. Extremism, violent or otherwise, does not emerge in a vacuum. Tahir Abbas explores how the problems causing violent extremism are local, and therefore, so are the solutions. Th...e concept of countering violent extremism delivers community and youth developmental projects as a process of social engineering that aims to discourage, disengage and de-incentivise vulnerable young people on the verge of radical political views. This book aims to understand the concept of countering violent extremism from a global perspective using case studies from different countries, while examining the host of issues it carries.
