Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : A volume in Research in Educational Policy: Local, National, and Global PerspectivesSeries Editor Kenneth K. Wong, Brown UniversityFor decades, education researchers have understood that school/university partnerships can be beneficial foreducation reform. K-12 institutions derive benefits from working with professors and university students, andhigher education institutions use local schools as sites for teacher training and school improvement research.Partnerships between universities and entire school districts for the explicit purpose of school districtturnaround are extremely rare, however. This is one reason why the longstanding partnership between BostonUniversity and the Chelsea Public School District is truly one of a kind. In 1989 Boston Universitycommitted itself to the day to day management of Chelsea''s schools, which were beleaguered with financial,managerial, and social problems. After twenty years and in large part thanks to that Partnership, the ChelseaPublic Schools, once the lowest performing in Massachusetts, have become some of the state''s highestperforming urban schools.In this collection, scholars from Boston University, the Chelsea Public schools, and abroad examine the history the Boston University/Chelsea PublicSchools Partnership and the important changes that are now a part of its legacy. Contributors examine both some of the promises fulfilled and some ofthe pitfalls encountered along the way, and they do so with an eye to how the Boston University/Chelsea experience can inform other school districtsand universities interested in forging partnerships. How does a university take fiscal and managerial responsibility for a struggling school district andwhat are the challenges inherent to such a unique relationship? What specific resources can a university bring to a struggling school district and howdoes a school district in turn contribute to the betterment of the university? Also, how does a longstanding partnership survive and thrive in the midstof a dynamic federal and state education reform climate?The lessons outlined in this volume should be informative for researchers, policy makers, and schooland university leaders interested in the possibilities that school/university partnerships hold for trueeducation reform.

Promising Practices for Family and Community Involvement During High School

Product : Promising Practices for Family and Community Involvement During High School
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : This volume focuses on family and community connections with education during the high school years. Incomparison to the wealth of attention that has been focused on involving parents with schools during the earlychildhood and elementary school years, less attention has been directed to parents of high school students andfewer educational programs have been developed to forge connections between family, community, students,and educators at the high school level. Researchers have found that family and community have a verysignificant impact on student achievement and on post secondary attainment despite the considerable declinein parental involvement by high school. Educators know that family and community factors are important forstudent success in high school while, at the same time, they identify working with families and connecting thecurriculum to the community as difficult.Currently, scholars from various fields are involved in conducting research to better understand how schoolscan best enhance the education of the young through interactions with students'' families and communities.Educational practitioners also are pioneering efforts to involve and serve families as well as to connect withcommunities in order to enrich the educational environment and enlarge opportunities for students, teachers, families, and community members. Thisvolume, which will be of interest to both researchers and educators, reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the field. The contributors were recruitedfrom diverse fields and workplaces.Chapters are organized into two sections to reflect whether the genesis of the work described is from theory and research or from practice and policy.Chapters originating from theory and research address: adolescent development and family involvement; the role of family and community inextracurricular activity participation; and the evolution of trust relationships in school community partnership development. Chapters originating frompractice and policy address: transition to high school, using the community as a text for learning; career education partnerships with businesses, postsecondary institutions, and community organizations; as well as, state policies and programs that support parental involvement in postsecondaryplanning.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : A volume in Studies in the History of EducationSeries Editor Karen L. Riley, Auburn University at MontgomeryThis volume, The New Social Studies: People, Projects and Perspectives is not an attempt to bethe comprehensive book on the era. Given the sheer number of projects that task would be impossible.However, the current lack of knowledge about the politics, people and projects of the NSS is unfortunateas it often appears that new scholars are reinventing the wheel due to their lack of knowledge about thehistory of the social studies field. The goal of this book then, is to sample the projects and individualsinvolved with the New Social Studies (NSS) in an attempt to provide an understanding of what camebefore and to suggest guidance to those concerned with social studies reform in the future-especially inlight of the standardization of curriculum and assessment currently underway in many states. The authorswho contributed to this project were recruited with several goals in mind including a broad range of ages,interests and experiences with the NSS from participants during the NSS era through new, young scholarswho had never heard much about the NSS. As many of the authors remind us in their chapters, much hasbeen written, of the failure of the NSS. However, in every chapter of this book, the authors also point outthe remnants of the projects that remain.Chapters in this book include: National Security Trumps Social Progress: The Era of the New Social Studies in Retrospect by Ronald W.Evans; Hilda Taba: Social Studies Reform from the Bottom Up by Barbara Slater Stern; Fannie Shaftel and Her New Social Studies by Jane Bernard-Powers; Can You Still Catch Fish with New Social Studies Bait?

The Varieties of Leadership at Novarum Pharmaceuticals: A Novel

Product : The Varieties of Leadership at Novarum Pharmaceuticals: A Novel
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Accounting
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Storytelling is a time-honored way of educating. Case studies attempt to engage students, but arelimited because they do not develop characters or settings. What is needed is a full-length novelwith complex, sympathetic characters and a story grounded in leadership and organizationalbehavior theories. Novarum Pharmaceuticals is such a book.Set in a large U.S. firm, it follows the struggles of an executive vice president trying to launch aninnovative joint venture with a Middle Eastern company. The story proceeds from Nia Stevens''first strategic proposal, through various triumphs and setbacks, to a final crisis in which she mustchoose between what she views as her career and her principles. The main characters reveal a mixof motives and perceptions about each other and doing business in the Middle East. They converge and clash and their actions changeas the story unfolds. Neither a tragedy nor a comedy, the book is a plausible depiction of life within a modern corporation.Novarum Pharmaceuticals embodies all the elements of a novel, but unlike novels this one contains an index that professors andstudents alike can use to tie characters'' actions to theory. The companion instructor''s resource manual provides an extensivediscussion framework for the professor, with background material on the pharmaceutical industry, resumes of the principle characters,questions and suggested answers for every chapter, descriptions of theory and concepts, learning goals for each chapter and abibliography of organization-related fiction.Novarum Pharmaceuticals will make a refreshing supplemental text in many courses in the undergraduate and graduate degreeprograms in business administration, psychology, sociology, organization development, public administration, healthcare managementand educational administration. Immersion in this book gives students a deeper appreciation of the often conflicted nature of workermotivation, better preparing them for navigating their own careers. General business readersinterested in the consequences of questionable ethical behavior and bad leadership will alsofind the book entertaining and useful.

Stand To It And Give Them Hell: Gettysburg As The Soldiers Experienced It From Cemetery Ridge To Little Round Top, July 2, 1863

Product : Stand To It And Give Them Hell: Gettysburg As The Soldiers Experienced It From Cemetery Ridge To Little Round Top, July 2, 1863
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : This is unlike any other Gettysburg book you will ever read. Instead of a dry recitation of the facts, "Stand to It and Give Them Hell": Gettysburg as the Soldiers Experienced it from Cemetery Ridge to Little Round Top, July 2, 1863 chronicles the desperate marching, fighting, command decisions, and suffering as depicted in the letters, memoirs, diaries, and postwar recollections of the men from both armies who struggled to control that "hallowed ground." This invaluable methodology uses the words of those who lived these events to paint a rich tapestry of personal courage, cowardice, failures, and triumphs.John Michael Priest, dubbed the "Ernie Pyle" of the Civil War soldier by legendary historian Edwin C. Bearss, wrote this book to help readers understand and experience, as closely as possible through the written word, the stress, exhaustion, suffering, and sheer terror of that fateful day in Pennsylvania. Readers of all interest levels will gain a deeper appreciation of the personal sacrifice made by privates and generals alike.The hundreds of word portraits are supported by 58 detailed original maps, most on the regimental level. In addition to illustrating the tremendous troop congestion in the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, and Devil''s Den, they accurately establish, by regiment or by company, the extent of the Federal skirmish line from Ziegler''s Grove to the Slyder farm, and portray the final Confederate push against the Codori farm and the center of Cemetery Ridge, against which three Confederate divisions (in what is popularly known as Pickett''s Charge) would unsuccessfully attack on the final day of fighting on July 3."Stand to It and Give Them Hell" is a book about combat as seen through the eyes of those who waged it. There is no glamour here, and no adventure. Nor are there accusations, axes to grind, or second-guessing from the comfort of an easy chair. Instead, Priest''s most ambitious book offers the brutal, heart wrenching story of a slice of America''s greatest battle as described by those who marched, fought, bled, and died there. These are their stories, and ones you will long remember.

Description : The Past & Present Series reconstructs historical battles by using photography, juxtaposing modern views with those of the past. It shows how much infastructure has remained and points to the passing nature of things such as outfits, uniforms, and ephemera.Operation Tonga began at 22:56 on the night of 5 June, when six Halifax heavy bombers took off from Tarrant Rushton towing six Horsas carrying a coup-de-main force consisting of D Coy, Ox and Bucks LI reinforced with two extra platoons from B Coy and a party of sappers, who were tasked with capturing the bridges over the Caen Canal and the River Orne. 6th Airborne Division-which included 1st Canadian Para Bn-had been allotted three specific tasks to achieve, apart from protecting the eastern flank of the Allied seaborne landings. First, it was to capture intact the two bridges over the Caen Canal and the Orne River at Benouville and Ranville. Second, the division was to destroy the heavily fortified Merville coastal artillery battery located at Franceville Plage, to ensure that it could not shell the British forces landing on Sword Beach. A third task was to destroy several bridges spanning the River Dives-at Varaville, Robehomme, Bures, and Troarn. The division would then hold the territory that it had seized until it could be relieved by advancing Allied ground forces.

Description : The Past & Present Series reconstructs historical battles by using photography, juxtaposing modern views with those of the past. It shows how much infastructure has remained and points to the passing nature of things such as outfits, uniforms, and ephemera.After its operations in the Cotentin and around Carentan, the 101st was withdrawn from the lines in late June and sailed back to England on LSTs in July. After several false alerts, they invaded by air again into the Netherlands on September 17, 1944, part of the airborne element of Operation "Market Garden." The mission was to hold open Hell''s Highway so that land forces could advance safely to Arnhem.Operation "Market Garden" is a strongly debated subject among WW2 historians: was it a brave attempt to end the war early that foundered for being a bridge too far, or was it, rather, an ill-conceived waste of resources that should have been used on another Front? With hindsight, there''s no doubt that the operation was a daring-if not risky-attempt to attack deep into enemy territory proposed by a general often disparaged for being too conservative.But at the beginning of September, it seemed to the Allied commanders that the enemy was disorganized; it had lost many men, huge numbers of vehicles, and had retreated helter-skelter through France and Belgium. In reality, the Germans had already started brilliant fire brigade reorganization and would soon have an effective defense throughout the Netherlands.101st parachuted right into the middle of enemy territory and north of Eindhoven. They met little resistance to begin with and captured most of their initial objectives by the end of 17 September. But the Germans managed to demolish the division''s primary objective, a bridge over the Wilhelmina Canal at Son, forcing the 101st to attempted to capture a similar bridge a few kilometers away at Best. They found the approach blocked but continued to hold territory enabling engineers to rebuild the demolished bridge. Other divisional units continued moving to the south and eventually reached the northern end of Eindhoven. In the following days they successfully defended the town of Veghel but failed to take the City of Helmond. As Operation "Market Garden" progressed, the rest of the 101st Airborne Division joined the 82nd Airborne Division on the island to the north of Nijmegen. The Screaming Eagles saw seventy-two days of fierce round-the-clock fighting against crack German troops and showed their fighting ability and tenacity.

The Definitive Firebird And Trans Am Guide: 1970 1/2 - 1981

Product : The Definitive Firebird And Trans Am Guide: 1970 1/2 - 1981
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : After the extremely successful debut of the first-generation Firebirds and Camaros, General Motors had a tall task ahead. It had to create an equally popular yet radically different version of the groundbreaking pony car it was replacing. Enthusiasts picked up on the radically different part as soon as they saw these cars. Over time, we have come to appreciate how successful these second-generation cars were. They include the early models that had an emphasis on performance along with the continued development of the Trans Am, the 455 Super Duty cars of 1973 and 1974, and the lightning-in-a-bottle popularity of the Smokey and the Bandit editions. During their production run, these Firebirds and Trans Ams were truly the only real performance cars out of Detroit, and for many of the model years, they eclipsed even the mighty Corvette.InThe Definitive Firebird & Trans Am Guide 1970-1/2–1981, Pontiac expert and historian Rocky Rotella examines each production year of the second generation of Firebirds. Production figures, option codes, running changes, model-year changes and variances, rarity, collectability, interviews with engineers, and more are thoroughly covered. This is sure to become the ultimate second-generation Firebird reference book. Complementing the detail and year-by-year analysis is a combination of archival photography from the development of these cars as well as beautiful color photos of original and restored examples today.This book tells the entire story of these immensely popular cars, whether you are into the second generation of F-Body regular models, Formula 400 performance models, the Super Duty Trans Ams, or the cars of Smokey and the Bandit fame. It is an excellent addition to any pony car, muscle car, or any enthusiast''s library.

Description : (Guitar Player Presents). Everyone knows the legends Hendrix, Page, Clapton, Beck, and all the other six-string giants but the evolution of guitarcraft wasn''t forged purely by uber-famous players with large cultural footprints. Scores of lesser-known pioneers such as Tommy Bolin, Danny Cedrone, Tampa Red, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe contributed vast numbers of licks, riffs, solos, tones, compositions, techniques, and musical concepts that inspired generations of guitarists and advanced the art of playing guitar. Their stories are as critical to modern guitar music as is electricity or amplification. Any guitarist seeking to devise a unique and individual sound should study the wacky, off-kilter, unfamiliar, and criminally underutilized creative concepts of the unsung greats, straight from the pages of Guitar Player magazine.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Education policy over the past thirty years has been powerfully influenced by well-funded and slickly produced research reports produced by advocacy think tanks. The quality of think tank reports and the value of the policies they support have been sharply debated. To help policymakers, the media, and the public assess these quality issues, the Think Tank Review Project provides expert third party reviews. The Project has, since 2006, published 59 reviews of reports from 26 different institutions. This book brings together 21 of those reviews, focusing on examining the arguments and evidence used by think tanks to promote reforms such as vouchers, charter schools and alternative routes to teacher certification. The reviews are written using clear, non-academic language, with each review illustrating how readers can approach, understand and critique policy studies and reports. The book will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and anyone concerned with the current debates about educational reform.

Product : Think Tank Research Quality: Lessons for Policy Makers, the Media, and the Public
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Education policy over the past thirty years has been powerfully influenced by well-funded and slickly produced research reports produced by advocacy think tanks. The quality of think tank reports and the value of the policies they support have been sharply debated. To help policymakers, the media, and the public assess these quality issues, the Think Tank Review Project provides expert third party reviews. The Project has, since 2006, published 59 reviews of reports from 26 different institutions. This book brings together 21 of those reviews, focusing on examining the arguments and evidence used by think tanks to promote reforms such as vouchers, charter schools and alternative routes to teacher certification. The reviews are written using clear, non-academic language, with each review illustrating how readers can approach, understand and critique policy studies and reports. The book will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and anyone concerned with the current debates about educational reform.

Embodied Wisdom: Meditations on Memoir and Education

Product : Embodied Wisdom: Meditations on Memoir and Education
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Embodied wisdom: Meditations on memoir and education by Alison Pryer, Ph.D. explores the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit within diverse educational contexts. Evocative, sensual prose carries the reader on a journey through the personal and the remembered in a layered series of autobiographical essays, each one affording deeper insights into the ways in which the inner, emotional life of an educator is intertwined with everyday embodied practice. This is a provocative text, alive with the richness and complexity of pedagogical experience, one that acknowledges the presence of the body, the spirit, the passionate, the subjective, the intuitive, the chaotic, and the sacred in all the relationships that make teaching and learning possible. In speaking beyond the limitations of dualistic pedagogy, in its diverse forms and locations, Embodied wisdom enters at times into unexpected and little explored pedagogical territories, engaging with educational contexts that our dualistic culture often denigrates, dismisses, or considers taboo.

Latinos/as and Mathematics Education: Research on Learning and Teaching in Classrooms and Communities

Product : Latinos/as and Mathematics Education: Research on Learning and Teaching in Classrooms and Communities
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : This book that explores the mathematics education of Latinos/as in 13 original research studies. Each chapter represents research that grounds mathematics instruction for Latinos/as in the resources to be found in culture and language. By inverting the deficit perspective, this volume redresses the shortcomings found in the previous literature on Latino/a learners. Each study frames language (e.g. bilingualism) not as an obstacle to learning, but as a resource for mathematical reasoning. Other chapters explore the notion of cultural variation not as a liability but as a tool for educators to build upon in the teaching of mathematics. Specifically, the book reframes culture as a focus on the practices, objects, inscriptions, or people that connect mathematical concepts to student thinking and experiences, both in and out of school. The book''s four sections divide the research: The first section of the book focuses on mathematic learning in classrooms, specifically exploring bilingual, Latino/a students; the second section explores Latino/a learners in communities, including the role parents can play in advancing learning; the third section includes chapters focused on teacher professional growth; the final section concerns the assessment (and mis-assessment) of Latino/a learners.

Advancing Relational Leadership Research

Product : Advancing Relational Leadership Research
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Leaders and followers live in a relational world-a world in which leadership occurs in complex webs ofrelationships and dynamically changing contexts. Despite this, our theories of leadership are grounded inassumptions of individuality and linear causality. If we are to advance understandings of leadership thathave more relevance to the world of practice, we need to embed issues of relationality into leadership studies.This volume addresses this issue by bringing together, for the first time, a set of prominent scholars fromdifferent paradigmatic and disciplinary perspectives to engage in dialogue regarding how to meet the challengesof relationality in leadership research and practice. Included are cutting edge thinking, heated debate, and passionate perspectives on the issuesat hand. The chapters reveal the varied and nuanced treatments of relationality that come from authors'' alternative paradigmatic (entity, constructionist,critical) views. Dialogue scholars-reacting to the chapters-engage in spirited debate regarding the commensurability (or incommensurability) ofthe paradigmatic approaches. The editors bring the dialogue together with introductory and concluding chapters that offer a framework for comparingand situating the competing assumptions and perspectives spanning the relational leadership landscape. Using paradigm interplay they unpack assumptions,and lay out a roadmap for relational leadership research. A key takeaway is that advancing relational leadership research requires multiple paradigmaticperspectives, and scholars who are conversant in the assumptions brought by these perspectives.The book is aimed at those who feel that much of current leadership thinking is missing the boat in today''s complex, relational world. It provides anessential resource for all leadership scholars and practitioners curious about the nature of research on leadership, both those with much research exposureand those new to the field.

New Jersey Folk Revival Music: History & Tradition

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : New Jersey shaped folk revival music into an art form. The saga began with the bawdy tunes sung in colonial-era taverns and continued with the folk songs that echoed through the Pine Barrens. Guitar Mania became a phenomenon in the 1800s, and twentieth-century studio recordings in Camden were monumental. Performances by legendary artists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan spotlighted the state''s folk revival movement and led to a flourishing community of folk organizations, festivals and open-mic nights at village coffeehouses. Author Michael Gabriele traces the evolution and living history of folk revival music in the Garden State and how it has changed the lives of people on stage and in the audience.

Witchcraft, Sorcery and Superstition: The Classic Study of Medieval Hexes and Spell-Casting

Product : Witchcraft, Sorcery and Superstition: The Classic Study of Medieval Hexes and Spell-Casting
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Witchcraft, Sorcery and Superstition, a classic study of medieval hexes and spell-casting, is one of the truly great sociological works of modern times. Michelet draws vivid word pictures of the witch-hunts, the Black Masses, the reign of Satan, and the weird rites of the damned. Here is an age of unbridled pleasure and sensuality, of luxury beyond imagining, and squalor behind endurance.It was a time when a girl might be accused of witchcraft merely and she was young and pretty and did not survive the test of immersion in water or boiling oil…a day of beatings, floggings, tortures, and summary decapitations.Starting from the 4th century, Michelet meticulously explains the history, background, origin of each sacrament and ritual, leaving one thoroughly occupied with this fantastical world of superstition, paranoia, and perhaps the paranormal. History intermingled with a gripping narrative, this enchanting piece will have you immersed in the world of magic.Witchcraft, Sorcery and Superstition is indeed one of the great works on the Age of Darkness.Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

The Tax Aspects Of Acquiring A Business

Product : The Tax Aspects Of Acquiring A Business
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Finance and Investing>Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Tax considerations are seldom the determining factor in deciding whether to purchase a business. However, taxes often affect the price and form (e.g., purchase of stock or purchase of assets) the acquisition takes. This is true because the rationally determined price will be based on the expected present value of after-tax future cash flows.The tax component of the equation will depend on the form the acquisition takes. From the seller’s perspective, tax considerations are extremely important. The tax implications of the purchase and sale of a business depend largely upon who is the buyer and who is the seller and what is being bought and sold. The business being purchased may be an unincorporated proprietorship, a single owner limited liability company (LLC), a partnership (or an LLC with more than one member), a C corporation, or an''S corporation. The form of the sale (asset or stock) affects the character of the seller’s gain (ordinary or capital) and the buyer’s basis of the assets. Basis becomes the buyer’s future tax deductions.Just as the price the buyer is willing to pay is based on projected present value of the after-tax proceeds, the price that is acceptable to the seller will depend upon his or her expected after-tax proceeds. Both parties must be aware of the other party’s tax consequences to achieve a rational agreement.

Nine works in The Paradox Bureau, an agency that police the temporal diaspora and prevent crimes before they happen. Special Investigator Nine is sent on assignment to the 1930s (to the very place and time he was originally recruited) and must avoid altering his own past while investigating a seemingly unpreventable murder. Nine uncoils a temporal conspiracy at the heart of a militant separatist movement. Why would an organization dedicated to preventing murder before it happens cover up a series of grisly killings? Nine, a time agent who is able to return from his own future to offer himself advice or armed backup, must now rely on his memory of the past rather than help from the future to solve a series of murders that can''t be prevented. Through the flash of rayguns and the halflight and fog of a futuretainted 1930s, Nine pursues a killer while he avoids fouling the investigations of his own multiple selves. To save his future and solve the crime Nine risks changing the one moment that gave his life purpose. Nine must decide if love is a force of nature or a force of habit. The one event he can''t live without must be altered to save the people he cares for, making himself his own worst adversary. With enough time, you can fix anything. Infinitum is a 120page lavishly illustrated graphic novel that breaks all the science fiction rules of time travel.

Letters Of Stone: From Nazi Germany To South Africa

Product : Letters Of Stone: From Nazi Germany To South Africa
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : As a young boy growing up in Port Elizabeth in the 1960s and 1970s, Steven Robins was haunted by an old photograph of three unknown women on a table in the dining room. Only later did he learn that the women were his father''s mother and sisters, photographed in Berlin in 1937, before they were killed in the Holocaust.Steven''s father, who had fled Nazi Germany before it was too late, never spoke about the fate of his family who remained there. Steven became obsessed with finding out what happened to the women, but had little to go on. In time he stumbled on official facts in museums in Washington DC and Berlin, and later he discovered almost one hundred letters sent to his father and uncle from the family in Berlin during the Nazi terror. The women in the photograph could now tell their story.Letters of Stone tracks Steven''s journey of discovery about the lives and fates of the Robinski family, in southern Africa, Berlin, Riga and Auschwitz. It also explores the worldwide rise of eugenics and racial science before the war, which justified the murder of Jews by the Nazis and caused South Africa and other countries to close their doors to Jewish refugees. Most of all, this book is a poignant reconstruction of a family trapped in an increasingly terrifying and deadly Nazi state, and of the immense pressure on Steven''s father in faraway South Africa, which forced him to retreat into silence

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : In Folk Tales on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, join the driver and fireman on the foot plate of a locomotive. Stand behind a range of levers in a signal box or be one of a gang working on the permanent way, sweating in the summer heat or shivering after a heavy snowfall. Maintenance men in Blea Moor tunnel needed patience and good lungs; the tunnel might be thick with locomotive smoke or draped with icicles. On the Settle-Carlisle journey, we are thrilled by a slowly changing landscape, glancing at Pen-y-ghent, which crouches like a lion above Ribblesdale. Further north, we admire the broad acres of the Eden Valley, which lie between the Northern Pennines and the gaunt fells of the Lake District. An afternoon passenger train that took in the line from Garsdale to Hawes was named Bonnyface; when it turned up, workers smiled as they were about to go home. The Garsdale tank house was used for dances and an adjacent wheel-less carriage was the refreshment room.

Joseph Goebbels: The Nazi Leadership At Rest And Play

Product : Joseph Goebbels: The Nazi Leadership At Rest And Play
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Coming generations will ask themselves how it was possible that millions of people, victims of an artificially induced enthusiasm, could be moved to do the very things which led to their own ruin. The answer could be given in hundreds of thousands of words, but, if it were expressed in one word alone, that word would be: Goebbels. Curt Riess, a Jewish Berliner who fled Germany upon Hitler''s appointment as Chancellor in 1933, considered Goebbels to be ''the most outstanding man of the Nazi regime, not even barring Hitler himself''. Without Goebbels'' genius for organization and propaganda, Nazism could never have amassed the support it needed to gain and keep power in Germany.From provincial obscurity, Goebbels scurried through the Nazi ranks to become one of the most dominant and trusted members of Hitler''s inner circle. His career was marked by formidable powers of administration, his ruthless hatred of the Jews, his resourcefulness in promoting Nazi ideals, and his inflexible devotion to the Führer, asserted in his final morbid gesture of propaganda: the sacrifice of his wife, six children, and himself in Hitler''s bunker in 1945. Riess'' biography was first published in 1949, and benefitted greatly from the discovery of Goebbels'' diaries in 1946. It explores the many fascinating and pertinent aspects of Goebbels'' character: the insecurities brought on by his diminutive stature; his rejection by his family; his consuming jealousy of his rivals; and his obsession with sex. It remains one of the most authoritative biographies of the man whose manipulative genius steered the German nation to ruin.

Premature Birth: The Baby, The Doctor And The Psychoanalyst

Product : Premature Birth: The Baby, The Doctor And The Psychoanalyst
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : The extremely premature babies who are hospitalized in a neonatal intensive-care unit are babies in danger. And if they manage to survive in their incubators, how can they begin to grasp the world outside? If a baby is attached to a machine and partially cut off from the Other, what possibilities does it have of becoming a subject?We are aware of some of babies'' extraordinary capacities, but what do we know about their experience of these extremely difficult and painful living conditions, of having been cast into a strange and hostile world? How can their families and doctors facilitate their encounter with these infants? What are the effects of premature birth on the newborn baby, its parents and the medical team?The current data shows that even when premature babies do survive, they often suffer from behavioral problems and in some cases from psychosis or autism. What happens to the relationship between the mother and her infant when mothers are "prevented" from taking care of their babies and left to feel guilty and useless? How do we intervene, so that despite everything we help restore the "primary maternal preoccupation" described by Winnicott? In this process, it is crucial that we work not only with the babies and their families, but also with the doctors.The psychoanalytical approach, which speaks about the necessity of "supposing a subject" in the baby, offers us another way of working and confronts us with a different set of ethical questions, thus allowing us to radically rethink our idea of "developmental care".

Into The Darkest Places: Early Relational Trauma And Borderline States Of Mind

Product : Into The Darkest Places: Early Relational Trauma And Borderline States Of Mind
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : This book explores the roots of borderline states of mind in early relational trauma and shows how it is possible, and necessary, to visit the darkest places in order to work through these traumas. This is despite the fact that re-experiencing such traumas is unbearable for the patient and they naturally want to enlist the analyst in ensuring that they will never be experienced again. This is the backdrop for the extreme pressures and roles that are constellated in the analysis that can lead to impasse or breakdown of the analytic relationship.The author explores how these areas can be negotiated safely and that, while drawing heavily on recent developments in attachment, relational, trauma and infant development theory, an analytic attitude needs to be maintained in order to integrate these experiences and allow the individual to feel, finally, accepted and whole.The book builds on Freud''s views of repetition compulsion and re-enactment and develops Jung''s concept of the traumatic complex. It offers, in simple language, a contemporary integration of traditional and new theoretical paradigms and an innovative approach to this oldest and most intractable of psychoanalytic issues.

Finding Love In The Looking Glass: A Book Of Counselling Case Stories

Product : Finding Love In The Looking Glass: A Book Of Counselling Case Stories
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Never has there been such a hunger to understand relationships, both with our self and with others, and this book contains valuable insights into the fascinating and dynamic dialogues between clients and their counselors. Although the clients presented here are entirely fictitious, they become totally real and easy to connect with as the reader is taken deeper into the unfolding intimacy of the counseling room. A variety of interventions are used but what is most instrumental in empowering the clients is the relationship that develops with themselves. These clients show us how we can successfully overcome outdated survival patterns and make effective new choices that work for us. The four topics covered are: Anorexia (including issues about cultural identity); Relationship Breakdown (including themes about boarding schools, class and cultural differences); Depression (including suicidal ideation); and Cocaine Addiction stemming from childhood sexual abuse. An introduction explains the structure and professional requirements of a counselor; a brief outline of the themes precedes each case story and there is an appendix of useful books, articles and online information. From thirty-five years of experience as a counselor, supervisor and Head of a University Counselling Service, the author shows how she has used her particular style of brief counseling to enable and witness this remarkable process.

Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Childhood sexual abuse within the family of origin and society''s institutions, such as the church, education, sports and the world of celebrity has been neglected as a significant issue by psychoanalysis and society. The incest trauma needs to be understood as one of the most significant problems of contemporary society.This book is an attempt to re-establish incest trauma as a significant psychological disorder by tracing the evolutionary trajectory of psychoanalysis from the Seduction Theory to the Oedipal Therapy to the Confusion of Tongues Theory. By examining the theoretical, emotional, interpersonal and political issues involved in Freud''s abandoning the Seduction Hypothesis and replacing it with the Oedipal Complex, we can see how system building became more important than the emotional welfare of children. In a series of chapters we will demonstrate this neglect of the incest trauma. Several case studies, using a Relational Perspective informed by the Budapest School of Psychoanalysis, illustrate the need to use the Confusion of Tongues theory of trauma, originated by Ferenczi as well his idea of expanding the analytic method to include non-interpretative measures to successfully analyze the incest trauma.

Description : Following on from the first volume, this is an international collaboration by psychotherapists and psychoanalysts who consider the impact of virtual reality on our society and the uses of communications technology for analytic treatment and professional training.

They provide a multi-faceted view of it, an ethical stance in relation to it, and evidence from which to judge its effectiveness. Looking into the future they imagine a time when technology-supported analytic treatment may be not only convenient as a supplement to in-person treatment but also preferable for some patients and therapists in various circumstances.

Sex Now, Talk Later

Product : Sex Now, Talk Later
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Sex matters. It is a crucial part of who we are and what to do. So why do we police what is normal and what is bizarre? As Estela Welldon argues in this insightful book, whenever we disapprove of others or ourselves in this way, we close our eyes to a deeper understanding of human nature.Dr. Welldon is an internationally recognized expert on sexual diversity. As a psychiatrist, she has also worked inside prisons with sex offenders, so she is familiar with the extremes of oddity. Here, she uses a psychoanalytic framework with humor, insight, and clarity to explore why we disapprove of sex and what we lose when we do. She presents us with a series of interwoven vignettes, drawn from clinical work and life experiences, which have led her to these conclusions.Dr. Welldon argues in this book, that as human beings, we have a responsibility to develop a much more inquiring and open mind and to feel privileged rather than disgusted when we have access to primitive fantasies that shine light into the dark corners of minds not considered normal.Be ready to live dangerously as you read these pages. The pursuit of understanding will take you deep inside the primitive and archaic origins of our present attitudes.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : In what ways do Jewish and Muslim faith schools in Britain play a role in promoting and contributing to community cohesion? What 21st-century skills around intercultural understanding do they foster?This book examines the nuances of faith in school settings and draws on a case study of Jewish and Muslim faith schools. The authors show how these institutions play a role in sustaining their own religious heritage while also engaging with, and keeping safe from, the wider community. It sets this case study approach within an historical perspective on faith schools and their relationship with the state in the UK and Europe, and gives an overview of key debates on faith schools. Finally, it examines practical curricula suggestions that all schools can adopt to develop skills around tolerance and engagement to prepare students to live and lead in a diverse 21st century.The book conveys:• the experiences of some Jewish and Muslim schools within England gathered from one-to one interviews with teachers, parents, and community representatives, and from focus groups with children;• a more detailed understanding of Jewish and Muslim concepts of community;• alternatives for preparing children for the skills and knowledge needed in the 21st century; and• the implications for policy and practice in faith schools and those not characterized by a religious ethos or affiliation.This publication is for school leaders, teachers, teacher trainers, students and parents. It will also interest government and non-government bodies relating to race relations and education.

Description : The “War on Terror” has politicized foreign aid in a way never before seen, with often devastating consequences. Aid workers are being killed in unprecedented numbers, and civilians in war-torn countries abandoned to their fate. From the battlefield in Afghanistan to the frontier refugee camps in Pakistan, the ravaged streets of Mogadishu to the tense flashpoint of the Turkey-Syria border, Peter Gill travels to some of the most conflict-stricken places on earth to reveal the new relationship between aid agencies and western security. While some agencies have clung to their neutrality, he finds others risking their impartiality in their pursuit of official funding.     In a world where the advance of Islamic State constitutes the gravest affront to humanitarian practice and principle faced in decades, Gill poses the crucial question—can Western nations go to war in a country and aid it at the same time?

Description : When world rallying introduced a new formula for “World Rally Cars, Ford seized the opportunity. Malcolm Wilson''s M-Sport organization was contracted to do the job, completed the design in less than a year, and spent the next 12 years campaigning this turbocharged, four-wheel-drive car all round the world.Working from state-of-the-art facilities, M-Sport built 97 Focus WRCs, all of which proved to be worthy of World level action when they won 44 World Championship events.Stellar drivers like Colin McRae, Carlos Sainz, Markko Märtin, Marcus Grönholm and Mikko Hirvonen all added to the mystique of an ultra-professional organization, along with substantial support and sponsorship from the likes of Martini, BP, and the state of Abu Dhabi.By building its in-house technical expertise, M-Sport not only engineered and developed the entire car on behalf of Ford, but gradually took over development of the 300bhp, 2.0-litre, turbocharged engine, and led the design of the complex four-wheel-drive transmissions provided by Xtrac.M-Sport''s reputation exploded to the point that when regulations changed, the company immediately produced a new-generation Fiesta WRC, and kept the winning days rolling.

Teutonic Knights

Product : Teutonic Knights
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : The Teutonic Knights were powerful and ferocious advocates of holy war. Their history is suffused with crusading, campaigning and struggle. Feared by their enemies but respected by medieval Christendom, the knights and their Order maintained a firm hold over the Baltic and northern Germany and established a formidable regime which flourished across Central Europe for 300 years.This major new book surveys the gripping history of the knights and their Order and relates their rise to power; their struggles against Prussian pagans; the series of wars against Poland and Lithuania; the clash with Alexander Nevsky''s Russia; and the gradual stagnation of the order in the fourteenth century. The book is replete with dramatic episodes - such as the battle on frozen Lake Peipus in 1242, or the disaster of Tannenberg - but focuses primarily on the knights'' struggle to maintain power, fend off incursions and raiding bands and to launch crusades against unbelieving foes. And it was the crusade which chiefly characterized and breathed life into this Holy Order.William Urban''s narrative charts the rise and fall of the Order and, in an accessible and engaging style, throws light on a band of knights whose deeds and motives have long been misunderstood.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : ''A highly recommended work.'' Military Illustrated''As compelling and absorbing an account of the fighting that I have ever read.''The Journal of The Royal ArtilleryThis spirited history of the 1815 campaign provides a stimulating account of the epic confrontation at Waterloo and, in addition, acts as a reliable guide to the battlefield and all related sites. The authors have divided the battlefield of Waterloo into three distinct sectors: one for each of the three armies involved. This allows the reader to follow the fighting from three different perspectives and gain an objective understanding of the dramatic course of the battle.The authors also make use of vivid eyewitness testimony, drawn from participants in all three armies, and this brings to life the epic battle and provides a dramatic backcloth to the rapid course of events. Previously unpublished letters from British officers, the recollections of a Dutch-Belgian staff officer and the memoirs of a French colonel of cuirassiers all contribute to an understanding of just what it was like to fight in one of Europe''s most crucial confrontations.In addition to covering Waterloo itself, this important book also examines the tense situation in Brussels as the French drew near, the aftermath of the battle, the battle at Wavre, the Prussian pursuit and Marshal Grouchy''s stubborn defense of Namur.

He was at Versailles in 1918 but between the Wars his career advanced with Brigade and General commands notably in Palestine where he spotted Orde Wingate.By the outbreak of war he was GOC-in-C Middle East. Early successes against the Italians turned into costly failures in Greece and Crete and Wavell lost the confidence of Churchill; their temperaments differed completely. Wavell was sent to India as C-in-C. After Pearl Harbor Wavell was made Supreme Allied Commander for the SW Pacific and bore responsibility for the humiliating loss of Singapore (he quickly recognized that it could not be held).Problems in Burma tested Churchill''s patience and he was removed from command to be Viceroy and Governor General of India. As civil unrest and demands for independence grew, in 1947 Prime Minister Attlee replaced Wavell with Mountbatten who oversaw Partition. Wavell died in 1950, after a life of huge achievement tempered with many reverses, most of which were not of his making.

Roman Conquests: The Danube Frontier

Product : Roman Conquests: The Danube Frontier
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : The Roman conquests of Macedonia in the 2nd century BC led directly to the extension of their authority over the troublesome tribes of Thrace to the south of the Danube. But their new neighbor on the other side of the mighty river, the kingdom of the Dacians, was to pose an increasing threat to the Roman empire. Inevitably, this eventually provoked Roman attempts at invasion and conquest. It is a measure of Dacian prowess and resilience that several tough campaigns were required over more than a century before their kingdom was added to the Roman Empire. It was one of the Empire''s last major acquisitions (and a short-lived one at that). Dr. Michael Schmitz traces Roman involvement in the Danube region from first contact with the Thracians after the Third Macedonian War in the 2nd century BC to the ultimate conquest of Dacia by Trajan in the early years of the 2nd Century AD. Like the other volumes in this series, this book gives a clear narrative of the course of these wars, explaining how the Roman war machine coped with formidable new foes and the challenges of unfamiliar terrain and climate. Specially commissioned color plates bring the main troop types vividly to life in meticulously researched detail.

Methodologies For Researching Cultural Diversity In Education: International Perspectives

Product : Methodologies For Researching Cultural Diversity In Education: International Perspectives
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : As teachers, education policy makers and school managers seek to meet the needs of students from cultures and languages different from the dominant majority''s, research needs to reflect the perspectives of the students themselves and of their parents and teachers, while taking account of the broader socio-political context. This book brings together research conducted in Scotland, Australia, Canada, Norway, Italy, Ghana and Pakistan, which addresses the ethical conduct of education research in culturally and linguistically diverse contexts.The relationship between researched and researcher is crucial, but it can be problematic when the researchers are from the dominant group and not the groups whose experiences they aspire to understand. These authors highlight the challenges of researching in culturally and ethnically diverse contexts, and describe innovative approaches such a mapping, shadowing and photography that give agency to the children who are being researched, rather than to the researchers.The book is of interest to academics and to classroom teachers researching their own practice, and also to education students and social science researchers working in culturally diverse contexts.

Blue Fish In A Dark Sea: Police Intelligence In A Counterinsurgency

Product : Blue Fish In A Dark Sea: Police Intelligence In A Counterinsurgency
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Police intelligence in a counterinsurgency may not hit the headlines and is by no means a panacea for civil strife, but is an integral component of a combined counterinsurgency strategy. It provides a weapon which is more feared by insurgents than any number of missiles, armored vehicles or boots on the ground. The proper employment of police intelligence is a vital and often overlooked tool which, if used correctly, may lead to a lasting resolution of any counterinsurgency campaign. Yet its capacity for uncovering and destroying the prime movers of an insurgency is all too often marginalized: knowing who they are and where they may be found renders the insurgent visible and touchable. This is the natural role of police intelligence as this work clearly demonstrates. This book is of particular value to policy experts and academics on the vital importance of police intelligence in counterinsurgency. Surprisingly little in the way of study of this specific aspect of counterinsurgency since policing is mentioned largely in the context of a supportive and adjunctive role to the efforts of more traditional military operations. It is Important to students of international relations, civil, national and international security, police academies, law enforcement and security management especially as security studies is an expanding discipline.

The Last Ironsides: The English Expedition To Portugal, 1662-1668

Product : The Last Ironsides: The English Expedition To Portugal, 1662-1668
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : When Charles II returned home he began the search for a dynastic marriage. He fixed upon the Infanta of Portugal, Catherine of Braganza, whose dowry included the possession of Tangier, Bombay and valuable trade concessions. The Portuguese had been fighting for their independence from Spain for twenty years and needed alliances to tip the scales in their favor. In return for the concessions Charles agreed to send to Portugal a regiment of horse and two of foot, which provided an excuse to ship away the remnants of the Cromwellian armies that had not been disbanded at the Restoration. The prospect of service was at first well received - Major-General Morgan drew forth his regiment of foot consisting of 1000 proper men besides officers, and made a short speech, acquainting them that his Majesty had been graciously pleased to design them for honorable service abroad. . . Whereupon they all with great acclamations of joy, cried out '' All, all, all. . . There were also officers and men who had remained loyal to the crown to them Charles owed a debt of employment, Former Royalists therefore made up the balance of the regiment of horse - uncomfortable bedfellows for their former enemies. The English and French regiments fought with courage and discipline at the series of major battles and sieges that followed, most of which have never been properly described. This is, therefore, the rediscovery of a lost episode in our military history. It was the English and French soldiers, under Schomberg''s leadership, who proved the decisive factor in winning back Portugal''s independence. But in return for their courage in battle, the English soldiers were rewarded with insults and want of pay. At the conclusion of peace in 1667, only 1,000 out of the 3,500 men who made up the force were left standing. 400 of these received what was effectively a death sentence: they were shipped to Tangier to join the fight against the Moors. The remainder returned to seek service in England or abroad - but places were hard to find. One veteran of the horse summed up the feelings of many - . . . there was never a more gallant party went out of England upon any design whatever, than were that regiment of horse. . . they came into the country full of money and gallantry, and those which survived left it as full of poverty and necessity. The author''s detailed but lively text is fully supported by a range of illustrations and specially commissioned maps.

The Battle Of Montgomery, 1644: The English Civil War In The Welsh Borderlands

Product : The Battle Of Montgomery, 1644: The English Civil War In The Welsh Borderlands
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 3
Description : Reflecting on the Battle of Montgomery, Sir Thomas Myddelton - who had jointly commanded the victorious Parliamentarian Army - later described it as: ''as great a victory as hath been gained in any part of the kingdom''. Fought on 18 September 1644 in mid-Wales, Montgomery was the largest engagement in the Principality during the First English Civil War of 1642 to 1646. In terms of numbers engaged, in its outcome and impact, it was also a particularly significant regional battle of the war. Notwithstanding its importance, historians have largely overlooked Montgomery. Consequently, it is rarely mentioned in studies of the mid-17th century British Civil Wars. Moreover, where attention has been accorded to the battle and the preceding campaign, both have often been sketched over or misinterpreted. To fully explain the course and context of events, The Battle of Montgomery, 1644: The English Civil War in the Welsh Borderlands therefore presents the most detailed reconstruction and interpretation of this important battle published to date. An addition to Helion & Company''s ''Century of the Soldier'' series, comprising titles breaking new ground in exploring 17th-century military history, The Battle of Montgomery, 1644 similarly adopts a fresh approach. Making extensive use of contemporary sources - many of which are referenced here for the first time - the campaign, the armies and their commanders are fully considered before the battle is investigated; here, because the site has not been certainly located, the author uses fieldwork and archival information to propose the most likely battlefield before examining the course of the engagement in the context of contemporary tactics and weaponry. While the battle is the main subject, The Battle of Montgomery, 1644 also considers the wider war in Northerly Wales and the North-West and West Midlands of England - a region that remains underrepresented in Civil War historiography. Extensively illustrated, including specially commissioned artwork, The Battle of Montgomery, 1644 will be welcomed by readers interested in the history of the British Civil Wars; by living history enthusiasts of the period; by wargamers and model makers; and by those curious about the history of Wales and the English borderlands.
