"Macmillan doesn't shy away from difficult questions about addiction and recovery and, rightly, doesn't answer them ... this is a bold, timely and searching play" - Financial Times Emma was having the time of her life. Now she's in rehab. Her first step is to admit that she has a problem. But the problem isn't with Emma, it's with everything else. She needs to tell the truth. But she's smart enough to know that there's no such thing. When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up? People, Places & Things premiered at the National Theatre in 2015 before transferring to London's West End and St. Ann's Warehouse in New York. Published for the first time in Methuen Drama's Modern Classics series, this edition features a brand new introduction by Naomi Obeng.

“In my eyes, Drug Treatment Court gives people like me a second chance to change their lives and to realize that we deserve a good life, no matter what we have done in the past. All I can really say is that if I didn’t have the privilege to be in drug treatment court, I would either still be incarcerated or would not be alive today.” People, Places and Things is a collection of stories from men and women who have lived lives of drugs and crime. Each has made the courageous decision to overcome their addiction, and the even more courageous decision to share their journeys with you. As they strive for sobriety with the guidance of Canada’s drug treatment courts, they experience the extremes of addiction, the power of recovery, and the value of community. The stories within are raw—the authors have bared their souls, which is a difficult and brave endeavour. Some of the stories in this book are tales of happy endings, while some represent very dark moments. Addiction, as any of life’s hardships, is a continuous journey; void of an end-state. These pages contain lessons about the power of resilience, the magic of hope, and the strength of believing in one’s ability to become the person one wants to be. The extremes you might experience as you embrace this collection of stories, poems, and artwork is representative of the extremes that those recovering from addiction endure, and of the extremes experienced by those that support, counsel, and represent them throughout their recovery.

Set within the context of UK devolution and constitutional change, People, Places and Policy offers important and interesting insights into ‘place-making’ and ‘locality-making’ in contemporary Wales. Combining policy research with policy-maker and stakeholder interviews at various spatial scales (local, regional, national), it examines the historical processes and working practices that have produced the complex political geography of Wales. This book looks at the economic, social and political geographies of Wales, which in the context of devolution and public service governance are hotly debated. It offers a novel ‘new localities’ theoretical framework for capturing the dynamics of locality-making, to go beyond the obsession with boundaries and coterminous geographies expressed by policy-makers and politicians. Three localities – Heads of the Valleys (north of Cardiff), central and west coast regions (Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and the former district of Montgomeryshire in Powys) and the A55 corridor (from Wrexham to Holyhead) – are discussed in detail to illustrate this and also reveal the geographical tensions of devolution in contemporary Wales. This book is an original statement on the making of contemporary Wales from the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD) researchers. It deploys a novel ‘new localities’ theoretical framework and innovative mapping techniques to represent spatial patterns in data. This allows the timely uncovering of both unbounded and fuzzy relational policy geographies, and the more bounded administrative concerns, which come together to produce and reproduce over time Wales’ regional geography.

As a nation, we should preserve our social memory by honoring those who paved the way for us to exist, recognizing those who etched their indelible mark on our lives, and remembering those who went to the great beyond before us as expressed in the Salute to the Dearly Departed segment (People); our regions, areas, and territories; our locales, hotspots, and hangouts and places we love to visit and events we constantly attend in (Places), and the happenings and the things that we cherish to death - items, commodities, artifacts, and products (Things). So dear readers, enjoy the mind "triggers" and heart-wrenching "diggers" you will find in this book honouring the 55th year of celebrating Jamaica's independence and the tantalizing trip down memory lane with this unofficial reference/resource guide by your side. You will recollect who is who (people), where is where (places), and what is what (things) in both the Jamaican and the Diaspora/Global context.

Helen Bainbridge takes us on a wonderful journey through the written history of prehistoric Swaledale, from a time when flint arrow heads were thought to be petrified thunderbolts, through the early and surprisingly perceptive antiquarians, and the certainties of the digging and writing clergymen, to the ground-breaking work of Robert White, Andrew Fleming and Tim Laurie which has inspired the 21st century investigation you can explore on the SWAAG website. We now know that good history and archaeology raise more questions than they answer, but the journey remains as exhilarating as ever. This publication will be of interest to both newcomer and well-seasoned enthusiast to the history of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale. Drawing upon a wide range of text focussing on local prehistory, fact, fiction and anecdote are connected with actual finds to create a lively trawl through time. Many of the illustrations have never been published and draw upon the riches of the Swaledale Museum archive.
