"Participation? Of course we do - every Wednesday without fail..." · What is participation? · What's the difference between 'adult-led' and 'child-led' participation? · And do we really need to do it at all? This second edition of The Busker's Guide to Participation sets out to help us understand our values and reasons for undertaking participation with children and young people. It shows us what authentic participation really looks like, helping us to get to grips with the ways we can positively support, interact, engage, include, involve and communicate with children and young people on all levels. Learn how to move away from simply 'doing' participation for participation's sake, and start to see participation as a 'way of being' for the benefit of everyone involved.

"You just can't let them do anything anymore you know..." · Why is risk important in children's play? · How can we protect children's right to play and protect children at the same time? · What is risk-benefit assessment and how can it help - rather than hinder - adults who work where children play? 'The Busker's Guide to Risk' explores why risk shouldn't be a four letter word when it comes to children's play. It starts from the right of children to play in a way that involves not only physical, but also social and emotional risk, and supports adults in developing a practical approach to balancing the need to protect children with the benefits of play.

Describing Discourse takes the unique approach of introducing discourse studies through the hands-on analysis of linguistic data. The book introduces students to specific discourses constructed for particular purposes, for example, from the domains of advertising, law, medicine and education. Each chapter provides examples, exercises and commentary designed to develop the analytical abilities needed in describing the characteristic forms and typical functions of different discourses.

This book examines local leadership and policy changes as a result of globalisation. The author identifies what behaviours are facilitating the connection of local economies to the global economy and what local structures enable or inhibit the activity. It presents positive indicators from empirical research and three local case studies, that a dyadic arrangement of transformational leadership and a legislative-activist structure are more likely to connect a local economy to opportunities in the global economy. Further, the research presents a new measure for behaviour and structure to deduce the potential for local participation in a global economy. The book is based in and expands several fields of study, and will appeal to scholars of international relations, economics, public management, immigration and politics.
