Thriving on the Front Lines by Bob Bertolino Book Summary:
Youth and Family Services (YFS) are part of residential and group homes, schools, social service organizations, hospitals, and family court systems. YFS include prevention, education, positive youth development, foster care, child welfare, and treatment. As YFS has evolved advances in research have brought forth a host of promising new ideas that both complement and expand on the original underpinnings of strengths-based practice. Thriving on the Front Lines represents an articulation of these advancements. Thriving on the Front Lines explores the use of strengths-based practices with those who are "in the trenches," Youth Care Worker (YCWs). Commonly referred to as resident counselors, youth counselors, psychiatric technicians (psych techs), caseworkers, case managers, and house parents or managers, YCWs are on the "front lines," often providing services 24 hours a day. Thriving on the Front Lines is an up-to-date treatise on the pivotal role of YCWs and those who work day in and day out with youth to improve their well-being, relationships, and overall quality of life. Unique aspects of the strengths-based framework provided in Thriving on the Front Lines include: Strengths-based principles informed by five decades of research; Discussion of the importance of using real-time feedback to improve service outcomes and "how to" implement an outcome-orientation; Exploration of Positive Youth Development; Two chapters devoted entirely to strengths-based interventions; An in-depth discussion of how to improve effectiveness through deliberate practice; and, How to develop a strengths-based organizational climate.

Front Lines by Lorraine Mary York Book Summary:
This first full-length study of Timothy Findley argues that his novels and short stories are part of a system of war texts. Not only is Findley's fiction haunted by the specter of war; it is also a compulsive testament to the infinite repetitions of war in domestic, gender, and class conflicts. Influenced by feminist literary theory, the workings of literary intertextuality, and the new historiography, the study shows how war as a literary device—as well as various historical wars, documents of war, and literary war texts—inform the novels and stories of Timothy Findley to such an extent that war becomes an integral part of their signifying systems.

A Report from the Front Lines by Michael Shahan Book Summary:
"In tribute to the ongoing influence of Robert Benne, director of the Center for Religion and Society at Roanoke College, fourteen of his friends and colleagues have produced A Report from the Front Lines, in which they consider the role of theology in the public arena at this turn of the twenty-first century. They speak powerfully to the cultural paralysis of the Western world, where educated leaders claim that morality must not interfere with science or public policy, by showing the relevance of orthodox Christianity to humanity's most pressing problems. The constant theme weaving through the volume is Benne's own conviction that Christians can and must engage in the public square with positions forged out of their religious commitments, using arguments whose presuppositions allow room for special revelation, but whose resultant logic is translated into a shared universal rationality." --Book Jacket.
Behind the Front Lines of the Civil War by Vladimir N. Brovkin Book Summary:
Countering the powerful myth that the civil war in Russia was largely between the "Whites" and the "Reds," Vladimir Brovkin views the struggle as a multifaceted social and political process. Brovkin focuses not so much on armies and governments as on the interaction of state institutions, political parties, and social movements on both Red and White territories. In the process, he exposes the weaknesses of the various warring factions in a Russia plagued by strikes, mutinies, desertion, and rebellions. The Whites benefited from popular resistance to the Reds, and the Reds, from resistance to the Whites. In Brovkin's view, neither regime enjoyed popular support. Pacification campaigns, mass shooting, deportations, artillery shelling of villages, and terror were the essence of the conflict, and when the Whites were defeated, the war against the Greens, the peasant rebels, went on. Drawing on a remarkable array of previously untapped sources, Brovkin convicts the early Bolsheviks of crimes similar to those later committed by Stalin. What emerges "behind the front lines" is a picture of how diverse forces—Cossacks, Ukrainians, Greens, Mensheviks, and SRs, as well as Whites and Bolsheviks—created the tragic victory of a party that had no majority support. This book has important contemporary implications as the world again asks an old question: Can Russian statehood prevail over local, regional, and national identities? Originally published in 1994. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.

It Started in Wisconsin: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Labor Protest by Paul Buhle,John Nichols,Michael Moore Book Summary:
First-hand accounts of the largest pro-labor mass mobilization in modern American history. In the spring of 2011, Wisconsinites took to the streets in what became the largest and liveliest labor demonstrations in modern American history. Protesters in the Middle East sent greetings—and pizzas—to the thousands occupying the Capitol building in Madison, and 150,000 demonstrators converged on the city. In a year that has seen a revival of protest in America, here is a riveting account of the first great wave of grassroots resistance to the corporate restructuring of the Great Recession. It Started in Wisconsin includes eyewitness reports by striking teachers, students, and others (such as Wisconsin-born musician Tom Morello), as well as essays explaining Wisconsin’s progressive legacy by acclaimed historians. The book lays bare the national corporate campaign that crafted Wisconsin’s anti-union legislation and similar laws across the country, and it conveys the infectious esprit de corps that pervaded the protests with original pictures and comics.
Nature's Restoration by Peter Friederici Book Summary:
Across America and around the world, people are working to help nature heal itself. In Bermuda, a man single-handedly grows thousands of trees on a small island to restore nesting habitat for a rare seabird. In Illinois, legions of volunteers replant prairies in the shadows of freeways. In Virginia, a farmer works to bring back the mighty American chestnut. What drives these individuals? How did their passions come about, and what are the implications for restoring the environment? Natures Restoration: People and Places on the Front Lines of Conservation is a lyrical look at these and other examples of ordinary citizens aiming to return sizable tracts of the American landscape to nature, and to health. Theyve found success in preserving rare species, reversing negative ecological trends, and promoting greater intimacy with nature. Yet the work is far from simple. Restoration projects are often in the news not only because of the promise they hold, but also because of the controversy they provoke. Based on detailed reporting and numerous interviews, Natures Restoration puts us on the front lines of restoration to learn how this burgeoning national movement shapes both places and people.

From the Front Lines by Juliet Cassuto Rothman Book Summary:
Using the NASW Code of Ethics as a framework, this text outlines the elements of ethical decision-making to provide students with a framework for recognizing, defining, and solving ethical dilemmas. Real-life, comprehensive and interesting cases are drawn from the fields of child welfare, family practice, medical social work, and social justice, among others. Rothman stresses the importance of collecting solid information and then using one of three alternative, frequently-used theories and principles (Gewirth's Ethical Principles Hierarchy, Loewenberg and Dolgoff's Ethical Principles Screen, and Beauchamp and Childress' Bioethics Model) for solving ethical dilemmas. In response to student demand for a casebook that relates directly to situations they might encounter in the field, this text includes 30 student- contributed ethics cases. Useful and practical examples of ethical problems, information needed to achieve proper resolution, and the students' thought processes were edited to support and reflect the six Ethical Standards in the new NASW Code of Ethics.
