 The De-Textbook    (New)
$32.25 AUD
You are an idiot.

Don't get defensive! It's not your fault. For decades your teachers, authority figures and textbooks have been lying to you. You do not have five senses. Your tongue doesn't have neatly segregated taste-bud zones. You don't know what the pyramids really looked like. You're even pooping wrong - Jesus, you're a wreck!

But it's going to be okay. Because we're here to help. Packed with more sexy facts than the Encyclopedia Pornographica, the Cracked De-Textbook will teach you about the true stars of history, why you picture everything from Velociraptors to Ancient Rome incorrectly, and finally, at long last - how to pop a proper squat. This book was built from the ground up to systematically seek out, dismantle and destroy the many untruths that years of misguided education have left festering inside of you, and leave you a smarter person...whether you like it or not. The De-Textbook is a merciless, brutal learning machine. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are informed.

 Textbook on Criminology    (New)
$60.95 AUD
Textbook on Criminology offers an engaging and wide-ranging account of crime and criminology, addressing the theoretical, practical, and political aspects of the subject. The clarity of approach makes it an ideal text for students wishing to gain a firm grasp of the fundamental issues, together with an appreciation of some of the complexities surrounding the study of criminology.

The author deals with the major questions of criminology, such as 'how do you define a crime?', 'why do people become criminals?', and 'how should we deal with criminals?'. Each question is studied from an objective and academic viewpoint and encourages greater social, political, and philosophical awareness of crime, criminals, and society's response to them. The text also maps out the changes in crime control and society's expectations in relation to crime control. For example, students will find the insightful chapter on terrorism and state violence to be of particular interest and relevance; established criminological theories are applied, and the author addresses issues such as political responses to terrorism and the reasons why people become terrorists.

The text is ideal both for students studying towards a degree in criminology, and students opting to study criminology as part of another subject, such as law.

 Textbook Romance    (New)
$20.8 AUD
Wouldn't it be great if there was a textbook with clear lessons on clever dating and how to build that Perfect Relationship? One that tells it straight but lets you laugh at yourself too? One that leaves you with your dignity and your personality intact? There is!

Zoe Foster, relationships guru, provides whip-smart step-by-step lessons in successful romancing, with male commentary from self-confessed male, Hamish Blake.

From 'Never Drink and Text' to the secrets of avoiding the 'Thai and Tracksuit Pants Curse' and the meaning of 'Engaging the Apricot', Textbook Romance is essential reading for every girl looking for love that lasts.

About The Authors

Zo? Foster enjoys writing author biographies because she gets to write things like, 'Zo? Foster is Australia's most critically acclaimed and best-selling author,' and, 'In 2010, Foster was controversially awarded the Pulitzer for the second time' despite the fact that all of these things are untrue.

Things that are true include her role as the editor-at-large of beauty website primped.com.au, columnist for The Sunday Telegraph, and the dating columnist for Cosmopolitan magazine. She was previously the beauty director at Harper's BAZAAR, and prior to that beauty director at Cosmopolitan magazine.

Zo? has published two novels, Air Kisses and Playing The Field, as well as dating and relationship book called Textbook Romance, (written in conjunction with Hamish Blake). A collection of her best beauty tips and tricks, Amazing Face, goes on sale June 2011, while sadly a collection of her worst beauty tips was pulped before it reached the shelves.

Hamish Blake once got one side of a Rubik's Cube all the same colour and describes his knowledge of relationships as 'a touch less successful than that'. Which is okay, because all he has to do in this book is reveal what guys think, and he has been a guy since he was born, and technically even a little bit before then. He co-hosts the national radio show Hamish and Andy, writes a monthly column for Cosmopolitan, appears regularly on TV's Thank God You're Here and Spicks and Specks, and is the author of Dave and Hamish Hate Girls (written at age 7), although his hardline stance on females has softened since the publication of that work.

The Routledge Education Studies Textbook is an academically comprehensive and appropriately challenging resource for students beyond the introductory stages of a degree programme in Education Studies. Written in a clear and engaging style, chapters are divided into three sections that examine fundamental ideas and issues, explore educational contexts, and offer study and research guidance respectively.

Debates between contributors are interspersed within sections, in response to the following questions:

  • Do private schools legitimise privilege?
  • Should the liberal state support religious schooling?
  • Are developments in post-14 education reducing the divide between the academic and the vocational?
  • Do schools contribute to social and community cohesion?
  • Do traditional and progressive teaching methods exist or are there only effective and ineffective methods?
  • Educational Research: a foundation for teacher professionalism?

Each chapter opens with an overview of the rationale behind it and closes with a summary of the main points. At the end of every chapter key questions are posed, encouraging the student to critically reflect on the content, and suggestions for further reading are made.

The Routledge Education Studies Textbook is essential reading for students of Education Studies, especially during years 2 and 3 of the undergraduate degree. It will be of interest to trainee teachers, including those working towards M level.

The Routledge Education Studies Reader containing key academic articles can be used alongside this textbook.
