This book features the design, creation and use of air raid shelters, including interviews with people who used them during the Second World War. The different types of bunkers/air raid shelters (both public and in people's gardens) are covered and the strength and weakness of their designs discussed, using original designs and primary material. The nostalgia/social history of the book covers people's experiences of staying in the air raid shelters. These are divided into topics, including getting to the shelters (how they reacted to the sirens or whether they just moved into the shelters, especially those in gardens, long-term), facilities, health issues, morale and safety, both real and perceived. In recent years, air raid shelters have been converted into different uses, including homes, and the book will finish with a brief chapter concerning the future and preservation of these once vital buildings.REVIEWS "...reminds us of the families that slept in them every night and even owed their lives to them...."Best of British Magazine, 06/2011

This book has resulted from collaborative interactions between academic institutions and animal shelters. It contains a collection of eleven papers (one review and ten research articles) on the behavior of dogs and cats in animal shelters, which can be very challenging environments. The papers focus on stress and behaviors associated with stress; the effectiveness of shelter enrichment programs in reducing stress; the usefulness of shelter behavioral evaluations in predicting behavior and assessing adoptability; and interactions between humans and companion animals. The aim of this book is to provide information that will inform shelter programs and policies, and thereby improve the welfare of shelter animals.

In Zaatari camp, Jordan, thousands of Syrian refugees were sheltered in tents and caravans, which they steadily appropriated and turned into dwellings. In this book, Ayham Dalal takes a closer look at this remarkable transformation - a process that involved the dismantling and reassembling of the camp. This transformation is challenging its humanitarian order and disciplinary machine, while allowing refugees to construct dwellings that responded to their social and cultural needs. Caravans were turned into architectural elements and financial assets, and materials were negotiated in relation to prevailing politics and time. These practices not only humanized the shelter and the camp but also underlined the importance of a »right to appropriation« in a world where bottom-up practices of »habiting« are being increasingly repressed by the top-down production of »habitats«.

'Beautiful' Adele Parks 'Life affirming and compelling!' Clare Mackintosh 'Tender and illuminating' Carys Bray 'Its characters pulse with life and energy . . . vividly rendered' Daily Mail Perfect for fans of Early One Morning by Virginia Baily and the novels of Maggie O'Farrell. Early spring 1944. Connie Granger has escaped her bombed-out city home, finding refuge in the Women's Timber Corps. For her, this remote community must now serve a secret purpose. Seppe, an Italian prisoner of war, is haunted by his memories. In the forest camp, he finds a strange kind of freedom. Their meeting signals new beginnings. But as they are drawn together, the world outside their forest haven is being torn apart. Old certainties are crumbling, and both must now make a life-defining choice. What price will they pay for freedom? What will they fight to protect? What readers are saying about Shelter: 'Tender, moving . . . with its unforgettable heroine' Irish Times 'Powerful and moving. Connie and Seppe are amazing characters. So well nuanced. I loved her feisty courage. And such heartbreak! This compelling debut shows how outsiders in a time of war seek to rebuild their lives again' Essie Fox, author of The Last Days of Leda Grey 'I LOVED it. Seppe is one of the most refreshing portrayals of masculinity I have ever read' Shelley Harris, author of Jubilee 'A lovely hymn to the woods and the men and women who worked there during the Second World War' Lissa Evans, author of Their Finest Hour 'The deeply profound effects of war quietly resonate through Sarah Franklin's gentle but delightful debut.

Since the publication of the first edition of Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters in 2009, research and practice in the field of shelter medicine have advanced significantly. This updated second edition of that seminal work provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to preventing, managing, and treating infectious diseases affecting cats, dogs and exotic small companion mammals in animal shelters. Throughout the book, the authors—noted experts on the topic—bridge the gap between medicine (both individual and group) and management. The book is filled with practical strategies that draw on the latest research and evidence-based medicine as well as the authors’ personal experience in the field. While the text highlights strategies for the prevention of illness and mitigation of disease spread, the book also contains practical information on treatment and considerations for adoption. This important text: Offers the only book dedicated to the topic of infectious disease management in shelters Presents guidelines for general management and disease prevention and control in cats and dogs Includes shelter medicine’s core principles of humane population management in the context of supporting shelters’ goals for preserving welfare, saving lives and protecting human health Contains a new chapter on exotic companion mammals Written for shelter veterinarians, managers, and workers, the revised second edition of Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters is the only book to focus exclusively on infectious diseases in the shelter setting, blending individual animal care with a unique herd health perspective.

Simple shelters—that you can build quick Research was undertaken to evaluate how average citizens could create their own shelters in the case of a political crisis that could lead to a nuclear attack. It was known that at this time in the mid-1970s, after Civil Defense planning and spending had waned since the 1950’s-60’s, that both the Soviet Union and China had more preparations for their citizens in major urban areas. This book was created under the auspices of the U.S. ERDA, an agency created in 1974 when the Atomic Energy Commission was split into the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the ERDA. This practical field research study became the original basis for Cresson Kearny’s more extensive book “Nuclear War Survival Skills”. What makes this report interesting and different is the wealth of extra info and photos that were NOT included in the book mentioned above. Simple shelters that can be built in 1 to 3 days and are outlined in this book are: - The Need for Improved Expedient Shelters - Door-Covered Trench Shelter - Stress test of Door-Covered Trench Shelter - Log-covered Trench Shelter - Occupancy test of Log-Covered Shelter - Above-Ground Door-Covered Shelter - Car-Over Trench Shelter - Large Log-Covered Trench Shelter - Overall conclusions and recommendations From the Introduction: "This report strongly indicates the practicality of tens of millions of Americans evacuating into rural areas and building and occupying high-protection-factor expedient shelters during an escalating international crisis. This concept was successfully tested by untrained families who built expedient shelters during winter in Colorado, summer in Utah, and spring in Florida. Their efforts are presented in this report primarily by the captioned photographs showing these typical American families evacuating their homes, driving to rural shelter-building sites, and then, with hand tools, constructing their own shelters. These average, mostly urban, American families were guided only by step-by-step, well-illustrated, written instructions given to them at the start of each experiment. Crisis conditions were simulated, and adequate motivation was provided by the promise of a cash bonus for completion of the shelter within 36 or 48 hours, depending on the difficulty of construction. All families, or groups of families, succeeded in winning the bonus, with one exception. The shelters built by the test families included the Door-Covered Trench Shelter, the Log-Covered Trench Shelter (which the building family occupied for 77 hours without emerging), and the Car-Over-Trench Shelter. Also, families are pictured while building four above-ground shelters designed for high-water-table or shallow-soil areas: the Above-Ground Door-Covered Shelter, the Crib-Walled Shelter, the Ridge-Pole Shelter, and the A-Frame Pole Shelter. These four above-ground shelters have protection factors (PF) in the range of 250 to 500. " Keywords: Civil defense,shelter,nuclear war,fallout,survival,improvised,radioactivity
