‘I didn't want this book to end.’ ELISABETH CARPENTER, author of 99 RED BALLOONS

Three women. Three secrets.

Antonia is beautiful and happily married. Her life is perfect. So why does she hurt herself when nobody’s watching?

Sophie is witty, smart and married to the best-looking man in town. She likes a drink, but who doesn’t?

Olivia is pretending to be a happy wife and mother. But her secret could tear her family apart.

Their lies start small, they always do. But if they don’t watch out, the consequences will be deadly.

‘I loved Beneath the Skin. It's so beautifully written and kept me hooked right to the end. Caroline England knows her wonderful cast of characters inside out. I didn't want this book to end.’ ELISABETH CARPENTER, AUTHOR OF 99 RED BALLOONS

'I loved this book. A clever, glamorous, observational, page turning read which pulled me in right from the start until the pivotal, and most satisfying end. Beneath the Skin transcends the ordinary crime genre, taking it to another level.' AMANDA ROBSON, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OBSESSION

‘Beneath the Skin is a startling debut. It slowly put me under its spell, until I was absolutely beneath its skin. With characters that pulsate off the page, complex relationships, and dark mysteries, this novel follows the lives of four couples. Their dramas are revealed slowly, patiently, and beautifully, until the breath-taking climax. I can’t recommend this enough.’ LOUISE BEECH, AUTHOR OF HOW TO BE BRAVE

‘Four couples with interlocking histories; eight individuals, all with secrets that are ready to explode. Set in the lush heartland of the Cheshire countryside, this is a tautly elegant psychological thriller, razor-sharp and utterly believable. I loved it.’ SARAH JASMON, AUTHOR OF THE SUMMER OF SECRETS

As the American economy surged in the 1990s, economic sociology made great strides as well. Economists and sociologists worked across disciplinary boundaries to study the booming market as both a product and a producer of culture, tracing the correlations they saw between economic and social phenomena. In the process, they debated the methodological issues that arose from their interdisciplinary perspectives. The New Economic Sociology provides an overview of these debates and assesses the state of the burgeoning discipline. The contributors summarize economic sociology's accomplishments to date, identifying key theoretical problems and opportunities, and formulating strategies for future research in the field. The book opens with an introduction to the main debates and conceptual approaches in economic sociology. Contributor Neil Fligstein suggests that the current resurgence of interest in economic sociology is due to the way it brings together many sociological subdisciplines including the study of markets, households, labor markets, stratification, networks, and culture. Other contributors examine the role of economic phenomena from a network perspective. Ron Burt, for example, demonstrates how social relationships affect competitive dynamics in the marketplace. A third set of chapters addresses the role of gender in economic sociology. In her chapter, Barbara Reskin rethinks conventional notions about discrimination and points out that the law only covers one type of discrimination, while in recent years social scientists have uncovered other forms of hidden discrimination, which must be addressed as well. The New Economic Sociology also addresses the problem of economic development and change from a sociological perspective. Alejandro Portes and Margarita Mooney elaborate on one of the key emerging concepts in economic sociology, arguing that social capital—as an attribute of communities and regions—can contribute to economic and social well-being by fostering collaboration and entrepreneurship. The contributors concur that economic action must be interpreted through the cultural understandings that lend it stability and meaning. By rendering these often complex debates accessible, The New Economic Sociology makes a significant contribution to this still rapidly developing field, and provides a useful guide for future avenues of research.

Future Directions

The field faces new challenges since the publication of Volume I, including increasing and diverse demands, motives and needs for learning Arabic across various contexts of use; a need for accountability and academic research given the growing recognition of the complexity and diverse contexts of teaching Arabic; and an increasing shortage of and need for quality of instruction. Volume II addresses these challenges. It is designed to generate a dialogue—continued from Volume I—among professionals in the field leading to improved practice, and to facilitate interactions, not only among individuals but also among educational institutions within a single country and across different countries.

Are you tired of studying English grammar without being able to speak it? Do you need to speak English fluently to advance your career or business? Do you want to speak English fluently in record time?

Then this book is for you!

This is a compact book encompasses the method I have developed after over more than a decade of research and experimentation.

Countless people struggle to learn to speak English, but do not achieve their goal. They study grammar for years, take exams and pay a lot of money for books and courses that simply perpetuate the learning experience. Why is it that the traditional model of grammar, reading, writing and then speaking doesn’t work? Because that's not how you learn a language naturally. We learn by listening, speaking, reading, writing and then, if we are interested enough in the subject we study linguistics.

You're probably a professional who, even though you may be able to read texts in English, are unsure when the time comes to speak. I understand that you have to be able to socialize and negotiate in international circles with confidence. This book will give you the tools you need to boost your oral communication, increase your confidence in using English, improve understanding, reach fluency, socialize on international stages and achieve a good level of communication and negotiation.

How can I be so sure of your ability to learn to speak English? You speak at least one language, right? If you are able to speak one language, you can speak two or three or four ... all you need is practice, practice and more practice  - but you must practice the right things!

And you need to be in shape! Think of your study as bodybuilding and your tutor as your coach. Consistency is the key and practice makes perfect. It will take time, require dedication, willpower and sacrifice; you have to push your brain to the limit. You may be tempted to quit. But I assure you, when you reach your fluency goal, it will all be worth it.
