Society is making great strides in increasing awareness of oppression and injustice, but one group remain mistreated, with unequal human rights, and remains under-discussed: children. Commonly recommended parenting and discipline methods, such as sleep training, school isolations and public shaming treat children in inhumane ways that would cause uproar if adults would treated similarly. Children’s needs and feelings are frequently dismissed and ignored by adults. They are taught to blindly obey adults in the name of ‘respect’, though respect is so rarely shown to them by adults. This book is a blend of childcare history, sociology, psychology, anthropology and current affairs and pop-culture coverage, aiming to raise awareness of a much undiscussed issue, but one that will surely be spoken of increasingly in the future.£16.99

What is a meaningful life? What does it mean to flourish? Antonia Case, the co-founder of New Philosopher and Womankind magazines, quits her corporate job in the city and, with her partner, travels across the world in search of meaning. In a quest to find answers, she turns off the soundtrack of the media, rids herself of technology, and with little more than books as carry-on luggage, she journeys from Buenos Aires to Paris, from Barcelona to Byron Bay, seeking guidance from ancient philosophers and modern-day psychologists on what is a good life, and what is a life worth living. Along the way she discovers why winning the lottery doesn’t make you happy, why making is better than having, and how love and belonging are vital to our sense of selves. Packed with insight into life’s big questions, ‘Flourish’ will take you on a riveting journey in search of what matters most.£16.99
