Luath Press Ltd

Luath Press takes its name from Robert Burns, whose little collie Luath (Gael., swift or nimble) tripped up Jean Armour at a wedding and gave him the chance to speak to the woman who was to be his wife and the abiding love of his life. Burns called one of ' The Twa Dogs' Luath after Cuchullin's hunting dog in Ossian's Fingal. Luath Press was established in 1981 in the heart of Burns country, and is now based a few steps up the road from Burns' first lodgings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Product Description

Details

How We Talk About Poverty explores the impact of childhood adversity on education, health and employment outcomes, and argues that society must make a shift to a more trauma-informed approach. It covers the consequences of the current poor approach to this issue, namely educational exclusion, addiction, welfare, and homelessness.
