Three sets of ocean liners, each destined to be of three vessels, dominated the Atlantic in the Edwardian era. The race to build the biggest and the best began with Mauretania and Lusitania in 1906, followed by the White Star Line's Olympic and Titanic in 1911-12. Each of these pairs was to see a larger sister, developed as a result of changes needed or desired as a result of operating the two earlier vessels, with Cunard's being Aquitania and White Star's, the ill-fated Britannic. Germany's answer to these British behemoths was the Albert-Ballin designed trio of Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck. Through misfortune or war, two of these vessels would sink but the others led useful lives, with Aquitania surviving two world wars before being scrapped. Designed to be the absolute engineering achievements of their time, these nine vessels dominated the Atlantic. J. Kent Layton tells the story of the Edwardian Superliners in this fabulously illustrated volume, showcasing many images previously unpublished and never before seen. Rarely can one describe a book as definitive, but this volume truly deserves the accolade.

Das Buch beginnt mit einem alten Zaubertrick - Man nehme eine 3-stellige Zahl, etwa 782, kehre sie um, ziehe die kleinere von der größeren ab und addiere dazu die Umkehrung. Also - 782 - 287 = 495, dann 495 + 594. Und schon ist man mitten in der Wunderwelt der Mathematik, denn das Ergebnis ist immer - 1089. Mit solchen und vielen weiteren Beispielen aus Alltag, Geschichte und Wissenschaft gelingt es David Acheson, die faszinierende Welt der Mathematik zu erschließen - ein geistreicher Überblick, eine für jeden verständliche Einführung.

Was wäre, wenn deine große Liebe nach langen Jahren wieder auftaucht? Darfst du alles riskieren für einen Traum? Für das ganz große Glück? Keiner schreibt so unnachahmlich über Männer und Gefühle wie ›Das Rosie-Projekt‹-Autor Simsion. Adam Sharp gefällt sein Leben: er lebt mit Claire zusammen, arbeitet als IT-Berater in London und gewinnt beim Pub-Quiz alle Musikfragen. Aber ab und zu überkommt ihn die Erinnerung an Angelina Brown. Vor über 20 Jahren, im sonnigen Melbourne, erlebte er mit ihr, was es bedeutet, wenn man die Liebe findet – und sie verliert. Wie wäre sein Leben verlaufen, wenn er sie damals nicht hätte gehen lassen? Völlig überraschend meldet sich Angelina bei ihm. Was will sie? Haben die Songs doch recht, die von der ewigen Liebe erzählen? Sie lädt ihn in ihr Landhaus nach Frankreich ein. Adam muss sich fragen: wieviel Risiko darf man eingehen, wenn Träume auf einmal wahr werden könnten? Der große Roman über die Mitte des Lebens und das Gefühl, noch jung zu sein, übers Begegnen und Auseinanderleben, und eigentlich darüber, ob in der Liebe gestern und heute zusammenpassen. Der neue Roman vom Autor des Weltbestsellers ›Das Rosie-Projekt‹, Graeme Simsion.

School Trouble

Identity, Power and Politics in Education

Author: Deborah Youdell

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136884173

Category: Education

Page: 176

View: 9338

What is the trouble with schools and why should we want to make ‘school trouble’? Schooling is implicated in the making of educational and social exclusions and inequalities as well as the making of particular sorts of students and teachers. For this reason schools are important sites of counter- or radical- politics. In this book, Deborah Youdell brings together theories of counter-politics and radical traditions in education to make sense of the politics of daily life inside schools and explores a range of resources for thinking about and enacting political practices that make ‘school trouble’. The book offers a solid introduction to the much-debated issues of ‘intersectionality’ and the limits of identity politics and the relationship between schooling and the wider policy and political context. It pieces together a series of tools and tactics that might destabilize educational inequalities by unsettling the knowledges, meanings, practices, subjectivities and feelings that are normalized and privileged in the ‘business as usual’ of school life. Engaging with curriculum materials, teachers’ lesson plans and accounts of their pedagogy, and ethnographic observations of school practices, the book investigates a range of empirical examples of critical action in school, from overt political action pursued by educators to day-to-day pedagogic encounters between teachers and students. The book draws on the work of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Ernesto Laclau and Chantel Mouffe, and Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari to make sense of these practices and identify the political possibilities for educators who refuse to accept the everyday injustices and wide-reaching social inequalities that face us. School Trouble appears at a moment of political and economic flux and uncertainty, and when the policy moves that have promoted markets and private sector involvement in education around the globe have been subject to intense scrutiny and critique. Against this backdrop, renewed attention is being paid to the questions of how politics might be rejuvenated, how societies might be made fair, and what role education might have in pursing this. This book makes an important intervention into this terrain. By exploring a politics of discourse, an anti-identity politics, a politics of feeling, and a politics of becoming, it shows how the education assemblage can be unsettled and education can be re-imagined. The book will be of interest to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students and scholars in the fields of education, sociology, cultural studies, and social and political science as well as to critical educators looking for new tools for thinking about their practice.
