Product : The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Was God telling the truth when he said, You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart?In his #1 bestseller The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God''s unique son. In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief-the eight heart barriers to faith. This Gold Medallion-winning book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.Everyone-seekers, doubters, fervent believers-benefits when Lee Strobel hits the road in search of answers, as he does again in The Case for Faith. In the course of his probing interviews, some of the toughest intellectual obstacles to faith fall away.-Luis PalauLee Strobel has given believers and skeptics alike a gift in this book. He does not avoid seeking the most difficult questions imaginable, and refuses to provide simplistic answers that do more harm than good.-Jerry Sittser, professor of religion, Whitworth College, and author of A Grace Disguised and The Will of God as a Way of Life

Description : A moving tale of the triumph of the human spirit amidst heartbreaking tragedy, told through the eyes of a charming, impish, and wickedly observant Afghan boyThe Taliban have withdrawn from Kabul''s streets, but the long shadows of their regime remain. In his short life, eleven-year-old Fawad has known more grief than most: his father and brother have been killed, his sister has been abducted, and Fawad and his mother, Mariya, must rely on the charity of parsimonious relatives to eke out a hand-to-mouth existence. Ever the optimist, Fawad hopes for a better life, and his dream is realized when Mariya finds a position as a housekeeper for a charismatic Western woman, Georgie, and her two foreign friends. The world of aid workers and journalists is a new one for Fawad, and living with the trio offers endless curiosities-including Georgie''s destructive relationship with the powerful Afghan warlord Haji Khan, whose exploits are legendary. Fawad grows resentful and worried, until he comes to learn that love can move a man to act in surprisingly good ways. But life, especially in Kabul, is never without peril, and the next calamity Fawad must face is so devastating that it threatens to destroy the one thing he thought he could never lose: his love for his country.A big-hearted novel infused with crackling wit, Andrea Busfield''s brilliant debut captures the hope and humanity of the Afghan people and the foreigners who live among them.

Product : From Splendor to Revolution: The Romanov Women, 1847--1928
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : This sweeping saga recreates the extraordinary opulence and violence of Tsarist Russia as the shadow of revolution fell over the land, and destroyed a way of life for these Imperial women The early 1850s until the late 1920s marked a turbulent and significant era for Russia. During that time the country underwent a massive transformation, taking it from days of grandeur under the tsars to the chaos of revolution and the beginnings of the Soviet Union. At the center of all this tumult were four women of the Romanov dynasty. Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna were born into the family, Russian Grand Duchesses at birth. Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna married into the dynasty, the former born a Princess of Denmark, the latter a Duchess of the German duchy of Mecklendburg-Schwerin. In From Splendor to Revolution, we watch these pampered aristocratic women fight for their lives as the cataclysm of war engulfs them. In a matter of a few short years, they fell from the pinnacle of wealth and power to the depths of danger, poverty, and exile. It is an unforgettable epic story.

Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : In the tradition of Joan Didion''s The Year of Magical Thinking, comes a poignant memoir about a marriage that was as deep and strong as it was mysterious and complex Upton and Sally Brady were a rare breed: cultivated and elegant, they lived a life of literary glamour and high expectations. Sally a debutante; Upton a classics major from Harvard, they met at the Boston Cotillion. He was articulate, witty, and worldly, and he danced like Fred Astaire. How could she resist? Despite raising four children on Upton''s modest wage as the editor-in-chief of the Atlantic Monthly Press, theirs was a world of champagne, sailboats, private islands, famous writers, family rituals, and ice-cold martinis. They lived life on their terms. But as time wore on, Upton, the charming and brilliant husband, the inventive, beguiling partner, grew opinionated, cranky, controlling, and dangerous. When Upton died suddenly one evening in their Vermont cottage, Sally began uncovering secrets. As she went through his papers, she discovered that her husband of forty-six years had desired the love of other men. Her riveting, charismatic husband was not quite the man he appeared to be, and a year of mourning became for Sally a time to unravel the dark and unexpected web he had left behind. Hers is a moving and powerful story of coming to terms with what cannot be changed. It is also a story of great love.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The recent history of New Orleans is fraught with tragedy and triumph. Both are reflected in the city''s vibrant, idiosyncratic music community. In Keith Spera''s intimately reported Groove Interrupted, Aaron Neville returns to New Orleans for the first time after Hurricane Katrina to bury his wife. Fats Domino improbably rambles around Manhattan to promote a post-Katrina tribute CD. Alex Chilton lives anonymously in a battered cottage in the Treme neighborhood. Platinum-selling rapper Mystikal rekindles his career after six years in prison. Jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard struggles to translate Katrina into music. The spotlight also shines on Allen Toussaint, Pete Fountain, Gatemouth Brown, the Rebirth Brass Band, Phil Anselmo, Juvenile, Jeremy Davenport and the 2006 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. With heartache, hope, humor and resolve, each of these contemporary narratives stands on its own. Together, they convey that the funky, syncopated spirit of New Orleans music is unbreakable, in spite of Katrina''s interruption.

Advice includes: How to kill enough animals to render a species endangered-just like Papa!Getting your friends to think drinking a daiquiri is manly . . . just by drinking one nine yourselfAchieving sufficiently high testosterone levels to never have to worry about the chance of having a daughter instead of a sonAnd much more!Profane, insightful, hilarious and loaded with more than 150 photos, facts and insights about Papa, The Heming Way is a difficult path, and not for the weak, but truth is manlier than fiction.

DSK: The Scandal That Brought Down Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Product : DSK: The Scandal That Brought Down Dominique Strauss-Kahn
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The sex scandal that toppled Dominique Strauss-Kahn gripped the world with its salacious allegations, dramatic twists, and a stunning turnabout in court. But the public saw only a fraction of what really went on behind the scenes, where justice played second fiddle to egos, political pressures, and investigative missteps. Now award-winning reporter John Solomon exposes the story you didn''t know, delivering a searing indictment of American justice at its moment of intense international scrutiny.When Strauss-Kahn arrived in New York on Friday, May 13, 2011, he was an international political powerhouse and favorite to win the French presidential election. By Monday, he was sitting in the notorious Rikers Island jail, his career in tatters.Likewise, when hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo arrived at work on Saturday morning, she never could have predicted that a brief encounter with a VIP guest would put her at the center of a legal and public relations battle that would leave her life in shambles. Those seven minutes in Suite 2806 would throw international politics into turmoil, eliminate one of the key players in Europe''s debt crisis, and create a trial by fire for Manhattan''s rookie district attorney. And it would all happen under the eye of a frenzied media which at first presumed guilt before suddenly turning the tables on the alleged victim. The public was left wondering: Was Dominique Strauss-Kahn guilty or innocent?Solomon goes past the headlines to show how personal clashes, ambition, and media leaks took precedence over facts and evidence. He chronicles the personal battles that went on behind the scenes, from suicide worries to AIDS scares, and the toll they took on key players. He lays out in gripping detail all the facts, good and bad, pro and con, so that finally the public can judge what really happened in one of the most fascinating criminal cases of the last decade.

Yeovil Memories

Product : Yeovil Memories
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Yeovil Memories covers a wide range of stories, from a tragic drowning in the River Yeo in 1856, the hardships of the savage winter of 1861 and that of two families who lost their cottages in a fire in February 1906, the lucky escape of a Westland test pilot as his aircraft broke up in mid-air in August 1934, and the top of the music charts of August 1952, to pop concerts in the Liberal Hall in 1965. Jack Sweet seeks to jog the collective memory of Yeovil’s past, reliving memories, good, bad and occasionally downright awful (at least for those who had the misfortune to experience one and remain to tell the tale). Perhaps the Californian poet Clarency Urmy (1858-1923) summed it up; ‘Old Songs are best - how sweet to hear. The strains of home and memory dear! Old books are best - how tale and rhyme Float with us down the stream of time!’

Whitechapel & Stepney Through Time

Product : Whitechapel & Stepney Through Time
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Whitechapel, situated in London''s famous East End, was so-named after a chapel dedicated to St Mary that was destroyed during the Second World War. While sixteenth-century Whitechapel was home to numerous foundries, breweries and tanneries by the mid-eighteenth century poverty and overpopulation had struck. Perhaps best-known for the horrific ''Whitechapel Murders'' between 1888 and 1891, the Whitechapel of today is a cultural melting pot. Much like Whitechapel and the rest of the East End, Stepney was largely marshland until the nineteenth century and the expansion of London''s docks and railways. Today, only a few vestiges of the district''s Georgian and Victorian architecture survive, having given way to brick flat towers and terraced homes.

Wyrley & Essington Canal Through Time

Product : Wyrley & Essington Canal Through Time
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The Wyrley & Essington Canal began as an independent waterway, carrying coal from Essington and Wyrley Bank to Wolverhampton. It was a popular route, in high competition with the mines at Bilston, Cosely and Tipton, which were served by Birmingham Canal Navigations. In 1792 and 1794 the canal was extended, creating routes to a number of new areas - five locks were used for a branch canal to Essington ''New'' Colliery, the highest point on the Wyrley & Essington Canal. Although useful in supplying water to adjacent navigations, trade on the Wyrley & Essington Canal failed to achieve its full potential, which led to closures along the canal throughout the period. Despite this, trade improved in 1840 when the waterway merged with Birmingham Canal Navigations. In this illustrated book, author Ray Shill details the development of the Wyrley & Essington Canal and delves into its fascinating history.

Portobello And The Great War

Product : Portobello And The Great War
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Portobello grew from a settlement founded around 1750 on the Figgate Whins, a desolate area of scrubland 3 miles east of Edinburgh. It took its name from Puerta Bella, the port in Panama that was captured from Spain by the British in 1739 and is best known as a popular beach resort. What is less well-known is that during the First World War it was home to thousands of British troops, some of whom were billeted in a former pleasure garden and others in a chocolate factory. The story of wartime Portobello makes for fascinating reading. Many Portobello residents lost their lives in the conflict, and are now commemorated by memorial monuments throughout the town. Life on the Home Front changed a great deal for Portobello''s residents. Troops for a new Edinburgh battalion were recruited from an office in Portobello and, for its size; the town sent an impressive number of men and women to serve in the war. In Portobello and the Great War, authors Archie Foley and Margaret Munro document the impact of the First World War on day-to-day life in Portobello, including a selection of old photographs to show how the conflict left its mark on the people and places around the area, and personal heart-felt diary entries from the era.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : ''Westbury - Home of the White Horse'' say the signs as you drive into town, and its most famous resident is visible for miles. But this is not the whole story. This small country town contains evidence of human activity from before the Roman invasion. Later, fast-flowing streams from the chalk hills powered mills and the woollen industry flourished, surviving until the middle of the twentieth century. Today the centre of Westbury is dominated by one of the last remaining mills. Close by stands the ancient parish church in its peaceful churchyard, and the narrow streets of the original borough lead to the Market Place. To the north, the railway station is an important junction on the West of England line, and to the east the cement works are a reminder of how the area''s natural resources have been used in modern times.

Description : Clackmannanshire is the smallest county in Scotland, known affectionately as ''The Wee County'', and Alloa is its county town. Once known for the manufacture of knitting yarn, the production of glass and the brewing of beer, the economy of the town today is centred mainly on the leisure and retail industries. Alloa harbour was also once a major trade centre, its major business the export of coal, chiefly destined for the United States. The Hillfoot Villages of Blairlogie, Menstrie, Alva, Tillicoultry, Dollar and Muckhart, which lie at the base of the Ochil Hills, 5 miles from Alloa, also now focus on leisure and retail. However, they were once centres of the weaving industry, the mills powered by streams flowing down from the neighbouring hills. Walter Burt uses a collection of modern and period images to show how Alloa and the Hillfoot Villages have developed and changed over the years.

Description : An ancient Celtic settlement, Wigan stands on the River Douglas with its face to the Pennine foothills, 8 miles south-west of Bolton and 20 miles from the South Lancashire coast. Described in 1698 as ''a pretty market town built of stone and brick'', Wigan was radically transformed by the first and second industrial revolutions and, for a century or more, cotton was king. While it is well-known for its pies, its mint balls, its cup-winning rugby and soccer teams, its icons of music, stage and screen, and its thick jam butties, Wigan is even more famous for its semi-mythical pier. But after 2,000 years of constant change, there is much more of interest and even of timeless, sylvan beauty in this old town and its surrounding villages.

Elsewhere, images of former shops such as Holdridge''s, Swettenham''s and the Spinning Wheel show how High Street shopping patterns have changed.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Wallasey: The Postcard Collection takes the reader on a journey through this fascinating and varied part of Britain. Situated on the northern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, Wallasey has primarily evolved from a collection of isolated villages into the sizeable town of 60,000 people we see today. The exception to this organic growth is New Brighton, a purpose-built town within a town, created by James Atherton from 1830 onwards. This far-sighted project became one of the most elegant seaside resorts of the Regency period, even taking its name from its pre-eminent rival on the south coast. The book is separated into six parts. We start with Liscard, the centre of town, with its shops and historic park, the former grounds of Sir John Tobin''s stately pile. We progress to New Brighton and Wallasey Village, with its tales of smugglers and customs men, the fairground and bracing sea air, the lighthouse and the forts. Finally, we take in Poulton and Seacombe with its docklands, distantly remembered railway stations and its famous ferry, before completing our tour in Egremont with its cinemas and many fine churches.

Runcorn Through The Ages

Product : Runcorn Through The Ages
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Runcorn’s position on the Mersey was identified as early as 915, by the Saxon princess Ethelfleda. The fort was built at Castle Rock in order to defend against the Danish invaders. The site, known as Castle Rock, is just where the railway bridge now spans the river. Prosperity first came to Runcorn with the building of the Bridgewater Canal, which was completed in 1776; the start of Runcorn as an industrial town. Heavy industry, such as soap and alkali works, soon moved in, as did major transportation links, including the Bridgewater Canal. Runcorn’s history began with the Saxon settlement, and settlers have been arriving since. The Normans came, followed by the boatmen, the workers in the quarries and chemical works, and finally the residents of New Town, which permanently changed the look of the town. Runcorn has coped with change for the past 1,100 years, but has never lost its distinctive character.

Description : The name Chislehurst literally means ‘a stony place in the woods’. A somewhat appropriate name to keep in mind as Joanna Friel explores the secrets of Chislehurst. Evidence of Chislehurst’s rich heritage can be seen embedded throughout the streets of this district, highlighting that Chislehurst remains a special place of distinctive character. It is, indeed, no ordinary suburb. Using vast knowledge of the area, Joanna Friel provides her readers with a brilliant look into the secrets of the area. From visually obvious fragments of the past that still exist to those lesser-known facts. For instance, did you know that an ingenious communication system erected on the town’s highest hill supposedly prevented an invasion by Napoleon Bonaparte, or that a local death sparked the ruin of a leader of the Irish Home Rule Movement? From locals looking for a nostalgic look back into their district to touring visitors, this book provides an excellent alternative view into the covert aspects of Chislehurst.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : For some the 1970s meant punk rock and political unrest. For others it was a time of ABBA and affluence. The decade’s dual identity was as striking in Norwich as it was nationally. While once-familiar streets were demolished, new buildings sprang up. Different brand names appeared in the city centre and with them came a new era of shopping and eating out. For those who remember the steakhouses and nightclubs, the football and the fashions of the 1970s, this book is a fascinating flashback to a different Norwich. Following his incredibly popular Norwich in the 1950s and Norwich in the 1960s, Pete Goodrum’s look at the 1970s shines a light on another decade in the city’s history. From the ‘old’ Odeon to the Garlands fire, from Bonds to the ‘Berni’, this is how we lived in Norwich in the 1970s.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Bucknall to Cellarhead Through Time follows a short stretch of the A52 from the ancient village of Bucknall, at the edge of the Stoke-on-Trent conurbation, to Cellarhead in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Although often thought of as simply a route out of ‘the city’, this area, like everywhere else in England boasts a rich history. It is a journey of just four miles, beginning in densely populated Stoke and ending in the countryside of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Bucknall, which appeared in the Domesday Survey of 1088 as ‘Buchnole’, has a parish church and until relatively recently had both a railway station and a hospital. Today it is a residential area straddling the A52, which here is known as Werrington Road. Near the former site of The Brookhouse, right where the Causley Brook passes beneath the road, the A52 crosses from Stoke-on-Trent into the Staffordshire Moorlands. The road changes its name here to Ash Bank Road and climbs past Ash Hall to Werrington. Werrington has a church, shops and houses, an old windmill, telecommunications tower and young offenders’ institution. On the far side of Werrington the road again changes its name and becomes Cellarhead Road. Our journey ends at Cellarhead crossroads, once famous for having a pub on each corner and now with no pub at all.

Little Germany: A History Of Bradford's Germans

Product : Little Germany: A History Of Bradford's Germans
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Little Germany takes us back to the nineteenth century, when Bradford, West Yorkshire, was the wool capital of the world. Over the centuries, Germany and Great Britain have been close trading partners. When Bradford became renowned for its rapidly expanding textile trade, prosperous German wool merchants entered the country and many of them settled in Bradford. These men, comparatively few in number but with great determination, influenced Bradford’s markets with their knowledge of commerce and philanthropic culture. They were merchants who left their mark, men who built the palatial warehouses in Little Germany. At the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and throughout the nineteenth century, cottage industries had given way to industrialisation and factories replaced traditional production. Bradford grew from a country market town into an industrial city, with smoke-blackened buildings and a polluted landscape. It was a city of great wealth against abject poverty and slums. Workers came to Bradford in their thousands, attracted by the prospect of work. German pork butchers from Hohenlohe in south Germany settled in the industrial cities of Great Britain. Their cheap and tasty ‘take-away’ meals were popular with factory workers, who had no time to cook due to long working hours.

Product : In And Around Ladywood Through Time Revised Edition
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Modern Ladywood, with its high-and low-rise housing, dual carriageways, open green spaces and trees on nearly every street corner, bears no resemblance to the old Ladywood many generations experienced. Working-class, back-to-back courtyards with terraced houses fronting them were erected alongside factories from the 1840s. They were built on either side of a canal and railway that cut through the middle of Ladywood. Following Ladywood’s redevelopment in the 1960s, only the canal, railway and a handful of the original buildings remain. Over time the whole population of Ladywood was moved; some remained local, others moved out. Now, through the medium of photography, the differences and similarities between Ladywood of past and present can be explored in this fully updated edition of In and Around Ladywood Through Time.

Bagnall, Endon, Stanley & Stockton Brook Through Time

Product : Bagnall, Endon, Stanley & Stockton Brook Through Time
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Bagnall, Endon, Stanley and Stockton Brook are situated to the north-east of the Potteries conurbation in North Staffordshire and form a rough triangle pointing towards Leek. The busy A53 passes through Stockton Brook and Endon carrying traffic between Stoke-on-Trent and Leek, and also conveying many of the residents of the area to work. Despite being relatively affluent dormitory settlements, Stockton Brook and Endon do still manage to retain much of their village feel. Stanley, Bagnall and the original Endon village are on quieter backwaters and are therefore more rural still. There is virtually no industry apart from livestock farming in the area and such industry that was developed in the nineteenth century has now disappeared. This area’s main interest lies in its ancient churches and farm buildings, its eighteenth-century canal and nineteenth-century railway and reservoir, not forgetting its popular and well-attended Well Dressing event, held every year since 1845. Bagnall, Endon, Stanley and Stockton Brook Through Time guides you on a nostalgic tour of these four North Staffordshire villages.

Description : Play ball! yelled the umpires as the teams of the AAGPBL took the field in the tense, war-torn days of 1943. Like all professional baseball players, these athletes scrambled to their positions, tossed balls across diamonds, and filled the air with chatter. But there was something different about them--they all wore skirts, went to charm school, and continually had to answer one question: What is a woman doing playing baseball?What were they doing? Having a great time, playing top-notch ball, and showing that a woman''s place was at home only when she was at bat, behind the plate, or scoring a run. For twelve seasons, from 1943 to 1954, some of America''s best female athletes earned their livings by playing baseball. This is their story in their own words, a tale of no-hitters and chaperones, stolen bases and practical jokes, home runs and run-ins with fans.Life in the league, however, was not all fun. Born out of a wartime manpower shortage, the AAGPBL ended with the growth of television and the ideal of the suburban home. Here, too, is the story of America''s changing attitudes toward men and women and the roles we expect each to play. Author Sue Macy spent eleven years tracking down the women of the AAGPBL, interviewing them, and looking at their scrapbooks. Along the way she found that their odyssey did not end with the collapse of the league.The same courage and spunk the players displayed on the field led them to get back in touch with each other in the 1980s, to remind the world of what they had achieved, and to take their rightful places in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Balancing the voices of the women of the league with a lively, insightful overview of the changing patterns of American life, A Whole New Ball Game is a sports story full of telling insights about who we expect to be at home and how women can get back to first base.

Omar Bradley

Product : Omar Bradley
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : General Omar Bradley was the premier US Army tactical commander in the European Theater of Operations in 1944-45. A West Point classmate of Dwight Eisenhower, Bradley was the quintessential US field commander of World War II, elevated to high command with little combat experience but a solid track record as a skilled planner and organizer. Bradley was part of a small cadre of highly skilled young officers groomed for higher command in the austere and bankrupt 1930s. Bradley began World War II in creating the new 82nd Division which would go on to fame as one of the US Army''s premier airborne divisions. Bradley spent most of the early years of the war in George Patton''s shadow, first as an assistant corps commander under Patton in Tunisia in early 1943, then as a corps commander under Patton on Sicily in July 1943. Patton''s social blunders pushed him out of contention for the coveted spot leading the First US Army on D-Day, and Bradley''s sterling performance on Sicily won him the position.Bradley was at the center of nearly all the major US Army victories in 1944-45 from D-Day through the final push into Germany. After commanding the US First Army in Normandy, Bradley was elevated to the command of the 12th Army Group, which contained the three main American field armies in the autumn of 1944. Along with that combat record came a string of controversies. Bradley''s great victories like Operation Cobra in July-August 1944 were brought in to question by more dubious campaigns such as the miserable battles for the Hurtgen forest and the lesser-known Operation Queen in the autumn of 1944. Bradley''s greatest blunder, failing to anticipate the German offensive in the Ardennes, was counter-balanced by a vigorous and skilled response which fatally injured the German army in the West. Beyond the performance of the US Army in the ETO, Bradley was also intimately wrapped up in other controversies, especially the internecine squabbles with his British counterpart, Bernard Montgomery.

Making Meaning With Texts: Selected Essays

Product : Making Meaning With Texts: Selected Essays
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Grades 7 to College No one has contributed more to our understanding of the relationship between readers and texts than Louise Rosenblatt. Her classic Literature as Exploration–now in its fifth edition–introduced the transactional theory of reading and pioneered a revolution that continues today in classrooms where reading and literature are taught. She maintains that both the reader and the text are essential to the making of meaning. The reader is active, drawing on a reservoir of past experience to interpret the marks on the page. The implications of Rosenblatt's theory range from ideas about instruction methods to ruminations on authority in the classroom, on the page, and in our everyday reading lives. Making Meaning with Texts brings together some of Rosenblatt's most important work, essays from the 1930s through the 1990s that explore the breadth and depth of her theory. She speaks directly to you, the teacher. In three parts–Theory; Practice: Education; and Practice: Criticism–she gives body to her ideas. The transactional approach expressed in 1938 has been widely adopted and remains vitally important to you today. This is a professional resource that you will return to again and again.

Product : Without Mercy: The Stunning True Story of Race, Crime, and Corruption in the Deep South
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Without Mercy reads like a John Grisham thriller.---David R. Dow, author of The Autobiography of an ExecutionOn December 9, 1938, the state of Georgia executed six black men in eighty-one minutes in Tattnall Prison''s electric chair. The executions were a record for the state that still stands today. The new prison, built with funds from FDR''s New Deal, as well as the fact that the men were tried and executed rather than lynched were thought to be a sign of progress. They were anything but. While those men were arrested, convicted, sentenced, and executed in as little as six weeks---E. D. Rivers, the governor of the state, oversaw a pardon racket for white killers and criminals, allowed the Ku Klux Klan to infiltrate his administration, and bankrupted the state. Race and wealth were all that determined whether or not a man lived or died. There was no progress. There was no justice.David Beasley''s Without Mercy is the harrowing true story of the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the violent death throes of the Klan, but most of all it is the story of the stunning injustice of these executions and how they have seared distrust of the legal system into the consciousness of the Deep South, and it is a story that will forever be a testament to the death penalty''s appalling inequality that continues to plague our nation

Description : Although early records of Hampstead can be found in a grant by King Ethelred the Unready to the monastery of St Peter’s at Westminster (AD 986) and it is referred to in the Domesday Book (1086), the history of Hampstead is generally traced back to the seventeenth century. Much luxurious housing was created during the 1870s and 1880s in the area that is now the political ward of Frognal & Fitzjohns. A lot of this housing remains to this day. Historically, Highgate adjoined the Bishop of London’s hunting estate. The bishop kept a toll house where one of the main northward roads out of London entered his land. In later centuries, Highgate was associated with the highwayman Dick Turpin. Highgate Hill, the steep street linking Archway and Highgate Village, was the route of the first cable car to be built in Europe. It operated between 1884 and 1909. Today, Hampstead and Highgate retain their village feel.

Description : The name Wetherby derives from the Saxon word for a sheep farm, or the Norse for a bend in the river. Archaeological finds show the Wetherby area has been populated since the early Bronze Age, growing around an important river crossing on the ''Great North Road'' between London and Edinburgh, for which the existing stone bridge was built in 1233. Mary Queen of Scots crossed it on her way south from Bolton Castle, as did many armies through the centuries. Two skirmishes were fought for possession of the town during the Civil War and Oliver Cromwell passed through the area on the morning of the Battle of Marston Moor. Almost all of Wetherby was the property of the Dukes of Devonshire from 1602 until 1824, and a number of buildings constructed on behalf of the Devonshire Estate still survive. Through a fascinating collection of images, the Wetherby Historical Trust details this town''s rich history.

Description : Originally called Bedricesworth, pilgrims came to worship at the shrine containing the martyred King Edmund, thus lending his name to the town. The enormous Benedictine Abbey of St Edmundsbury, alas now in ruins, was one of the largest in the country, extending its influence over much of Suffolk. Its existence contributed to the affluence of the town - so much so that even kings held their Parliament here! The town''s affinity with Magna Carta is something it is proud of. Bury received its first charter from James I in 1606, enabling it to prosper even further with a growth envied by other towns. The twentieth century saw the creation of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. The parish church of St James became Suffolk''s Cathedral; its millennium tower is magnificent inside and out. Today tourists come to enjoy the wealth of history and heritage.

Description : St Neots used to be in the county of Huntingdonshire, but it is now in Cambridgeshire. If you ask locals what St Neots is famous for, they will probably give you one of the following answers: that at one time it had the most public houses per capita in the British Isles; or that it is called St Neots because some monks went to St Neot in Cornwall in 974, stole the saint''s bones, and carried them 300 miles away to the banks of the River Great Ouse, thus founding the Priory of St Neots. There are actually four separate parts to what now comes under the heading of ''St Neots''. Eynesbury is the oldest; Eaton Ford is just across the river to the west; and further on from there is Eaton Socon, on the old Great North Road. Beautifully illustrated with a selection of fascinating photographs, St Neots Through Time takes the reader on a journey through the development of this town and its surroundings.

Product : River Don: From Source To Sea
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The River Don in South Yorkshire flows through a changing landscape. Along with the River Rother and the River Dearne, it forms a river system with a catchment of around 700 square miles and a population of over 1.5 million. The upper reaches of the river are defined by dams which provide a public water supply. The middle section contains a number of weirs to supply mills, foundries and cutlers’ wheels. The lower section contains weirs and locks to maintain the water levels for navigation. Over the course of time, the Don has suffered some very notable floods. In 1536, the forces of the Pilgrimage of Grace were prevented from crossing the river at Doncaster due to flooding, and they subsequently had to enter into negotiations with the King’s forces. In 1864, the Great Sheffield Flood destroyed 800 houses and damaged a number of bridges upstream, killing 270 people. A river with a turbulent past, the River Don has much to offer both residents and visitors, including pubs, walking routes, wildlife, sites of historical interest and the flora. The river is a delight for anybody embarking on its exploration.

An Illustrated Introduction To The Battle Of Waterloo

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : On 18 June 1815 some 200,000 men fought in what would be the most important land battle Europe had ever seen, the Battle of Waterloo. It was not the largest battle of the Napoleonic Wars, nor would it actually be the last, but it ultimately brought to an end almost a quarter of a century of virtually uninterrupted conflict. The result of the battle, which the Duke of Wellington would later describe as a ‘near-run thing’, changed the course of history, and Europe – indeed much of the world – would never be the same again. An Illustrated Introduction to the Battle of Waterloo tells the dramatic story of the battle, from Napoleon’s escape from exile on Elba to the final desperate attempt of the Imperial Guard to turn the tide against the Allies. A truly fascinating battle, in an equally fascinating period of history, is explored in full colour.

Description : Derby’s history goes back almost 2,000 years, despite a re-foundation on a revised site in the tenth century. For most of its subsequent history it was a County Town, but in the later seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it was home to a number of people who were scientific and entrepreneurial innovators and their efforts led to a radical transformation of the Borough in the Regency period followed by the introduction of heavy industry: iron founding, railways, and textiles. This led to a renewal, expansion and the expression of increasing prosperity through the built environment. In the 20th century some of the older industries went into eclipse, to be succeeded by new high-tech ones. Derby became the focus of a new Diocese in 1927, a City in 1977 and entered the present century much expanded and forward-looking. Yet, despite this, Derby retains much of its historic core, and is full of neglected corners, lost elements and little-known aspects, some of which were once crucial components of its long history: Queen Aethelflaeda, missing medieval churches, impressive ancient houses, unexpected survivals and partly unrealised 1930s urban renewals among therm. If you think you know your Derby – think again!

Jews and Money: The Story of a Stereotype

Product : Jews and Money: The Story of a Stereotype
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : In the wake of Bernie Madoff''s ruinous investment schemes, Abe Foxman takes a cultural and political look at the many variations throughout history of the assumptions made about Jews and money. These include Jews as greedy global capitalists; Jews as wealthy secret communists; Jews as cheapskates; and Jews controlling the media with their money to unduly influence society. Foxman makes the case that these stereotypes have permeated cultures globally and argues that these beliefs are rooted in deep-seated and pervasive anti-Semitism. As with all forms of bigotry, society at large needs to respond to the persistence of stereotypes by educating the young, denouncing hate speech, and by encouraging Jews, like all groups, to express pride in their ethnic and religious heritage.

Defeating Dictators: Fighting Tyranny in Africa and Around the World

Product : Defeating Dictators: Fighting Tyranny in Africa and Around the World
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : The recent turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East disproves the idea that dictatorships are acceptable to the people of these nations. From the uprising in Tunisia to the overthrow of Egypt''s Hosni Mubarak and rebellion across the region, the tide is turning against oppressive regimes. In this timely and urgent narrative, White House advisor on Africa George Ayittey takes a hard look at the fight against dictatorships around the world, from Eastern Europe in the twentieth century to the present turmoil in the Middle East. He describes the historic circumstances that led to the rise of brutal dictators and explains how, despite the best intentions and billions of dollars in aid, Western governments have been complicit in helping dictators consolidate power. He not only shows how the popular uprisings underway can best bring about democracy, but warns how democratic movements can inadvertently pave the way for more dictators. Ayittey examines strategies that have worked in the struggle to establish democracy through revolution, and suggests that by harnessing the power of democratic institutions and grassroots efforts, Africans can bring stability and security to the continent.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : After 9/11, when the nation was still in shock, a mother of three in rural Montana was devouring literature on Islamic culture, teaching herself Arabic, and preparing to infiltrate the central nervous system of global terror: online networks. Shannen Rossmiller''s efforts succeeded beyond imagination. Posing as an Islamic militant under dozens of screen aliases, she joined forces with the FBI and started trolling jihadist chat rooms, striking up conversations at 3am with men as far away as Pakistan, and amassing evidence against an array of suspected terrorists both at home and abroad.In 2002, Shannen''s family uncovered her double life after a chat room terrorist wiped out their computer, and reports rolled in that the Rossmillers were being targeted for reprisal. Undeterred, Shannen pressed on, bringing many would-be jihadists to justice, testifying in nationally publicized trials, and pioneering the digital entrapment tactics that are at the forefront of today''s war on terror. This is the story of one woman''s unexpected courage and how it changed the face of this global struggle.

Sherman:  Lessons in Leadership: Lessons in Leadership

Product : Sherman: Lessons in Leadership: Lessons in Leadership
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : General William Tecumseh Sherman famously said War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it. This statement has contributed to his mythic status as a grim-visaged Civil War character who embodied implacable war. Utilizing unique and highly successful maneuvering techniques, Sherman was an original, decisive, and efficient leader. Rising steadily through the ranks during the Civil War, Sherman quickly became Ulysses S. Grant''s right hand man. He went on to lead the Union capture of Atlanta, a major victory that contributed to Lincoln''s reelection during a tough phase of the war. Legend has him burning a sixty-mile-wide swath of desolation across the South, but while he held the harsh view that the Southern people must feel the pain of the war if it were ever to end, he also showed courtesy and restraint to those Southerners he encountered and strictly limited the destruction to strategic targets. An integral component to the North''s success, Sherman was directed and single-minded in his pursuit of Union victory and a re-united country. Acclaimed Civil War historian Steven E. Woodworth delivers a nuanced, insightful portrait of General Sherman, as a man who shied away from the spotlight and only wanted the war to end as quickly as possible.

CREATED EQUAL: Why Gay Rights Matter to America

Product : CREATED EQUAL: Why Gay Rights Matter to America
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Why should Americans who are not gay care about gay rights? In Created Equal, Michael Nava and Robert Dawidoff argue that the movement for gay equality is central to the continuing defense of individual liberty in America. Beginning with an examination of the determined assault on gay issues by the religious right, the authors show how this sectarian movement to legislate private religious morality into law undermines the purpose of American constitutional government: the protection of the individual''s right to determine how best to live his or her life. The book starts from the premise that gay and lesbians are, first and foremost, American citizens, and then looks to what rights belong to every individual American citizen, arguing from the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Addressing their argument to the great majority of their fellow Americans, Dawidoff and Nava emphasize that what is at stake is not the fate of the gay community, but the future of constitutional principle and the rights of free individuals in American society.

Description : Shot, stabbed, and beaten, Miyazaki Manabu somehow emerged intact from his first fifty years to put his astonishing life story down on paper. Born the son of a yakuza boss in 1945, he grew up in a household of gang members and social misfits before his conversion to Marxism launched him into the violent world of 1960s student radicalism. After dropping out of university and spending a brief sojourn in South America, he became a reporter on a fast-rising weekly magazine. Called back home toKyoto to take over the family demolition business, he was plunged into a maelstrom of bankruptcy and debt, forcing him to raise funds however he could. Along the way, he became the chief suspect in one of Japan''s most sensational criminal cases - - still unsolved - - before getting caught up in the crazy years of Japan''s bubble economy, when land speculators tipped their favorite bar hostesses millions of yen and Dom Perignon flowed like water. More than just one man''s incredible story, unflinchingly told,Toppamono is a sophisticated analysis of Japan''s postwar half-century that will astound and enlighten. Devastatingly critical of banks and bureaucrats, questioning of Japan''s understanding of democracy, and cogent on the role played by the yakuza in Japanese society, this underground best-seller, first published in 1996, will keep you enthralled until the very last page.toppamono n: a person with a devil-may-care attitude, who pushes ahead regardless.

Limestone Industries Of The Yorkshire Dales

Product : Limestone Industries Of The Yorkshire Dales
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Industries and Professions
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 7
Description : Limestone has been one of the most indispensable building materials in Britain since the Roman period, when it was widely used for mortar. It was in the medieval era that lime began to be used in farming, alongside marl, as a means of increasing the output of both arable crops and livestock. The impact of limestone extraction in the Yorkshire Dales, once one of the most productive quarrying areas in Britain, has been huge. The area has thrown up many innovative entrepreneurs, and limestone quarries are an integral feature of today''s dalescape. The quarries have important stories to tell, not least those of the generations of men who toiled in hostile conditions to build the country''s economy. In Limestone Industries of the Yorkshire Dales, Dr David Johnson provides a detailed account of lime''s myriad uses, and the historical and technological forces that led to each. Until relatively recently, lime was an ingredient, in one form or another, of almost every aspect of British life. This is the story of limestone quarrying and its processing into lime, and the impact it has had on one of the most beautiful parts of Britain. This revised edition of the book brings the story completely up to date and includes material and illustrations not previously available.
