This ground-breaking book challenges readers to rethink the divide between liberal and orthodox approaches which characterizes Christianity today. Ian S. Markham's argument centers around the issue of Christianity's engagement with non-Christian traditions. He takes issue with those people who see this engagement as a submission to modernity, arguing that throughout its history Christianity has in fact been enriched by its association with other traditions.The book draws on a range of illuminating examples, including extensive discussion of key figures such as Augustine of Hippo, as well as specific cases involving human rights, state sovereignty, feminism, black theology, economics, and ethics.

The past 25 years have seen profound changes in the landscape of public services internationally. Public sector reforms under the guise of New Public Management, Governance and, more recently, Public Value have impacted the ways in which practitioners deliver public services and the way in which academics think about those services. Increasing complexity, scarce resources, smaller government, privatisation, weakened employment relations, new forms of citizen engagement, including the use of social media, and so on have contributed to this changing landscape. At the same time traditional notions of accountability, public service motivation, responsibility, integrity and public duty are under challenge. In the past 15 years, the field of public sector ethics has become much more international in its scope. Once dominated by scholars from the USA, researchers in Europe, Asia, and Australasia are now much more prominent. Bringing together a global group of scholars; Ethics in Public Policy and Management looks to reflect this changing landscape. This excellent volume offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the field with contributions from scholars from different disciplines such as political science, sociology, history, philosophy, anthropology, critical studies, reflecting the different approaches that have been taken. The volume provides thought-provoking reading for educators, administrators, policy makers, and researchers within the fields of public management and ethics alike.

Hidden Gem has been written in honour of the staff of an Oncology unit within a General Hospital in the National Health Service (N.H.S.) in the United Kingdom (U.K.) It consists of an in-patient's view which has concentrated on trying to record the day-to-day minutiae of what was going on around the author whilst most of the time lying or sitting-up in his bed. He has tried to keep an objective type of journal, simply sticking to what he could see although inevitably his own daily schedules, personal thoughts, feelings and sense of humour has kept on coming through.
