Back in 1881, when Evelyn Cheesman was born, English girls were expected to be clean and dressed in frilly dresses. But Evelyn crawled in dirt and collected glow worms in jars. When girls grew up they were expected to marry and look after children. But Evelyn took charge of the London Zoo insect house, filling it with crawling and fluttering specimens and breathing life back into the dusty exhibits. In the early 1920s, women were expected to stay home, but Evelyn embarked on eight solo expeditions to distant islands. She collected over 70,000 insect specimens, discovered new species, had tangles with sticky spider webs, and tumbled from a cliff. Inspire children to believe in their dreams and blaze their own trail with the story of Evelyn's amazing life!
Past and present violently collide when Lotte, an English tourist who repairs dolls, is captured while on a tour of current-day Troy and flung back into the ancient camp of Euripides' Trojan Women.Part contemporary drama, part homage to Euripides' Trojan Women, Trojan Barbie recasts the legendary fall of the city of Troy against the vivid reality of modern warfare. Poetic, compassionate, and tinged with great warmth and humor, Trojan Barbie is an epic war story with a most unlik
In this evaluation of the international legal standing of the right to reparation and its practical implementation at the national level, Christine Evans outlines State responsibility and examines the jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice, the Articles on State Responsibility of the International Law Commission and the convergence of norms in different branches of international law, notably human rights law, humanitarian law and international criminal law. Case studies of countries in which the United Nations has played a significant role in peace negotiations and post-conflict processes allow her to analyse to what extent transitional justice measures have promoted State responsibility for reparations, interacted with human rights mechanisms and prompted subsequent elaboration of domestic legislation and reparations policies. In conclusion, she argues for an emerging customary right for individuals to receive reparations for serious violations of human rights and a corresponding responsibility of States.
WAR PLAYS by Christine Evans collects for the first time three of this US-based, UK-Australian playwright's remarkable plays about war and aftermath: Trojan Barbie, Mothergun and Slow Falling Bird. With an introduction by esteemed filmmaker Peter Davis, this collection is a terrific introduction to Evans' astute theatrical voice.
This book addresses two questions. One, how do the managerial and organizational practices of new, state-of-the-art manufacturing plants contribute to competitive advantage and two, how do firm-level competitive advantage help to define regional advantage. It examines these issues through original case studies of management practices in a sample of 48 Japanese and domestic startup factories in the United States. The field research findings are backed by the analysis of a national data on new manufacturing plants.
The role of a genetic counsellor is to mediate between the rapid advances in molecular medicine and an individual??'s ability to understand and manage the risks of their inheritance. Counsellors therefore need to be fully in command of the psychological impact of their communications. Written by a psychiatrist who later became a psychotherapist, this manual is essential reading for counsellors of all disciplines. It examines the psychological processes and explains why people approach and respond differently. Effective genetic counselling requires a knowledge of attachment behaviour and non-directiveness, and an in-depth understanding of empathy in order to help individuals contain anxiety and process grief and so facilitate their decision-making or help with the effects of reviewing a test result. Along with an up-to-date discussion of similar approaches in family therapy and psychoanalysis, the effect of counselling on the counsellor is also examined creatively in order to enrich the interview with clients.
Featuring a generous selection from four published collections of the poems of Christine Evans, this book also features her new work. Spanning two decades, the book opens with pieces from "Looking Inland. The visiting farmers in "Callers" with their "blunt, nervous hands" set the tone for the early poems, which are poignant, precise observations of the author's surroundings, a farm on the Llyn Peninsula in north Wales. Also included is the entire "Falling Back, an accomplished longer poem. It tells the story of a woman's attempts to come to terms with the death of her husband, a shepherd, in north Wales. From initial stunned grief through recovery, the slow stages of bereavement are movingly portrayed. The poems from "Cometary Phases show an increasing confidence and ambition. In pieces like "Deep Under" and "Fodder," the poet starts with externals and then moves deeper, using the landscape as metaphor for emotional or spiritual states. Selections from the "Island of Dark Horses focus on the mysterious island of Bardsey off the coast of Llyn, whose history and inhabitants inspire Evans to a series of reflections, culminating in the long celebratory title poem.
This new collection from Christine Evans follows last year's well-received "Selected Poems". Hers is a sensitive and persuasive voice, highly attuned to the vagaries of the seasons, to the landscapes and inhabitants of the beautiful Llyn peninsula in North Wales, where the author has made her home. As well as vibrant short lyrics on everything from 'Bluebells in Nanhoron' to jets flying over Wales, there are a series of tender, elegiac pieces on neighbours, friends and relatives, meditations on the last moments of Shelley and the fates of the Brontes, and a number of poems featuring the mysterious island of Bardsey off the north Wales coast, on which the poet spends half the year.
Ageing, change, the environment, and the position of women are Evans' subjects in this remarkable third collection. At the center are a group of poems that explore the world of darkness, the land 'between wakings.' These are the work of a gifted insomniac!
