The Boy They Tried to Hide is the startling, true account of how truth is sometimes stranger than fiction ... Shane Dunphy was working as a resource teacher in a rural town when he was approached by the mother of one of his pupils, seeking help. She is worried for her troubled young son, who has been found leaving the house late at night to go deep into the woods near their home. He has spoken of meetings with a friend, Thomas, but no one else has seen him or knows who he is. As Shane tries to discover what's going on, a sexual predator he helped bring to justice years before reappears. The man is looking to settle a score, and has picked someone close to Shane as his next victim. In The Boy They Tried to Hide, Shane Dunphy revisits cases he encountered during his time as a child protection worker and journalist and, in doing so, once again discovers that leaving the past behind is harder than it seems.

In spite of the overwhelming interest in the study of memory and trauma, no single volume has yet explored the centrality of memory to films of this era in a global context; this volume is the first anthology devoted exclusively to the study of memory in twenty-first-century cinema. Combining individual readings and interdisciplinary methodologies, this book offers new analyses of memory and trauma in some of the most discussed and debated films of the new millennium: Pan's Labyrinth (2006), The Namesake (2006), Hidden (2005), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Oldboy (2003), City of God (2002), Irréversible (2002), Mulholland Drive (2001), Memento (2000), and In the Mood for Love (2000).

Adoption is one of the most emotive and complex subjects in social and family history. Gill Rossini's social history of adoption between 1850 and 1961 uncovers the perspectives of all those concerned in adoption: children, birth relatives, adoptive families, and all the agencies and organisations involved. ??Rossini charts the transformation of the adoption process from a chaotic informal arrangement to a legal procedure. Set against the backdrop of the moral, cultural, and legal climate of the times, the contemporary voices of those who played a part in an adoption give real insights into this often turbulent period in their lives. Discover how shocking stories of baby farmers and unwanted orphans fuelled the campaign for change, and hear previously untold stories.??For those who wish to conduct their own research into an adoption, Rossini has compiled a comprehensive guide to resources.

I've heard people say that it's all luck. I've also heard that experience with the game is still your best bet. I've seen drunks win hand after hand and old pros make dumb mistakes when the cards are going against them. Why is it that some people contract incurable diseases and miraculously go into remission? Why can a guy who barely made it through high school find a job that enables him to climb to the top of the financial heap? Is it luck, or is it something else?There are nights when all one can do is lose, and others when a five dollar bill pays off the big one in a matter of minutes. Nevertheless, one keeps hoping that it's more than a twist of fate. The inevitable question of some higher power that's on your side is ever present. Do only the good people win?What follows in Bad Beat is a fairy tale of six individuals in a poker game. Or, is it really a fairy tale? Do love and generosity make some people more eligible to hit what has come to be known as a "bad beat?" Is it simply a matter of being in the right seat at the right table at the right moment? Winning is more often a matter of luck, and the biggest question remains what is "winning" after all. Who are the real winners? You decide. Place your bets.
