Drawing on examples from her own professional experience, she discusses how play can help resolve issues by allowing possible solutions to be explored safely, thus encouraging flexibility of response. She explores the cultural background and theory of using play as a therapeutic tool with children and how play can communicate to the therapist what the child needs to tell.

The Nuffield Tractor Story

Volume Two: Nuffield and Leyland 1963-1982

The Nuffield Tractor Story

In Volume One of the Nuffield Tractor Story, Tony Clare took the account up to 1967, the era of the powerful 10/60 model. In Volume 2 he continues with the development of the Mini tractor. Tony shows the final development of the Nuffield mid-range tractors, the 4/65 and the 3/45, and their further evolution into the first of the re-badged Leyland Tractors, the 384 and the 344 models. With detailed research and many photographs the author goes on to cover the roller-coaster ride that awaited this key part of the British tractor industry. He deals with the later difficulties of the British Motor Corporation and the government-initiated merger with Leyland Vehicles. Further development of the tractor range was to continue with the introduction of the '98' series engines, safety cabs, the 'Synchro' gearbox and the 'Harvest Gold' range. Finally, British Leyland decided to dispose of the tractor business in 1982. Tony Clare, a chartered building surveyor based in Surrey, has previously had two books published by Old Pond. He competes in ploughing matches with his Nuffield M4 tractor.
