Why would anyone strangle a humble seamstress with no known enemies? When newly-married bookseller Victor Legris is asked to solve the murder of Louise Fontaine in the abattoir district of La Villette, he is initially baffled by the case. But as the investigation progresses, Victor, along with his assistant and brother-in-law Joseph, discovers that in belle-epoque Paris young girls with no money or background are as ruthlessly preyed on as ever they were -

The Nazis asked him to swear allegiance to Hitler, betraying his country, his friends, and everything he believed in. He refused. Poland, 1939. Professional photographer Wilhelm Brasse is deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau and finds himself in a deadly race to survive, assigned to work as the camp's intake photographer and take "identity pictures" of prisoners as they arrive by the trainload. Brasse soon discovers his photography skills are in demand from Nazi guards as well, who ask him to take personal portraits for them to send to their families and girlfriends. Behind the camera, Brasse is safe from the terrible fate that so many of his fellow prisoners meet. But over the course of five years, the horrifying scenes his lens capture, including inhumane medical "experiments" led by Josef Mengele, change Brasse forever. Based on the true story of Wilhelm Brasse, The Auschwitz Photographer is a stark black-and-white reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust. This gripping work of World War II narrative nonfiction takes readers behind the barbed wire fences of the world's most feared concentration camp, bringing Brasse's story to life as he clicks the shutter button thousands of times before ultimately joining the Resistance, defying the Nazis, and defiantly setting down his camera for good.

The Paradoxes of High Stakes Testing - How They Affect Students, Their Parents, Teachers, Principals, Schools, and Society... The Paradoxes of High Stakes Testing - How They Affect Students, Their Parents, Teachers, Principals, Schools, and Society (Hardcover, New)

R2,114 Discovery Miles 21 140 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

The book's goal is to clarify for parents, the public, and policy makers what high stakes tests are and how their use affects our schools, children, and society. It explores the various uses, limitations, and paradoxical consequences of high stakes testing. The present context of testing and the reauthorization of No Child Left Behind make the proposed book timely and important. Current testing programs provide valuable information to teachers, parents, and policy-makers about students, schools, and school systems. But paradoxically, these programs have unintended yet predictable negative consequences for many students, teachers, and schools. It is essential that the public and policy-makers understand the scope and impacts that result from the inherent paradoxical nature of high-stakes testing. Testing is viewed by policy makers across party lines as an ""objective"" measure of student attainment and has become their tool of choice to drive educational ""reform"" and hold children, teachers, schools, and districts accountable. Bipartisan support for test-based accountability is firm. For example, on January of 2005 President Bush called on Congress to extend NCLB testing in math and science to freshmen, sophomores and juniors citing poor performance among high school students as a ""warning and a call to action."" (NYT 01/ 13/05) Senator Kennedy, a critic of the President, nonetheless supported the President's proposed high school testing provisions.

The Heart of A Leader - A Thirty Step Guide to Becoming a Better Leader (Paperback): Jennifer Higgins The Heart of A Leader - A Thirty Step Guide to Becoming a Better Leader (Paperback)
Jennifer Higgins; Illustrated by Jeremy James
R362 Discovery Miles 3 620 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

You can be a leader regardless of who you are or the job or position you hold. It doesn't take any extra schooling or a fancy title to make you a leader - it takes integrity and character - qualities that come from within. The Heart of A Leader is about leading people and how to become more effective at it. In the process of becoming a more effective leader, you'll probably find that you have become a better person. The Heart of A Leader is not about the tactics of managing. It is designed to give you the framework by which you will be in a better position to appreciate and take advantage of what those people you work with have to offer you as a leader and your organization in general.
The Heart of A Leader is not long or hard to read. It is designed to have all the information in bite-size chunks of information that you can read and then implement. It is divided into four sections each of which becomes a layer on top of the previous section - You, Your Talk, Your People, and Business Realities. Each concept within those sections is made in one page and is designed to focus on those aspects that will help you become a better and more focused leader.

Between 1880 and 1940, English responses to French poetry evolved from marginalised expressions of admiration associated with rebellion against the "establishment" to mainstream mutual exchange and appreciation. The translation of poetry underwent a simultaneous evolution, from attempts to produce definitive renderings to definitions of translation as an ongoing, generative process at the centre of literary debate. This study traces the impact of French poetry in England, via a wide range of translations by major poets of the time as well as renderings by now forgotten writers. It explores poetry and translations beyond the limits of the usual canon and identifies key moments of influence, from late 19th-century English homages to Victor Hugo as a liberal icon, to Ezra Pound re-interpreting Charles Baudelaire for the 20th century.

Meetings, partings, loves and losses in rural France are dissected with compassion. The late wedding guest isn't your cousin but a drunken chancer. The driver who gives you a lift isn't going anywhere but off the road. Snow settles on your car in the middle of summer and the glitter found between the pages of a borrowed novel takes you into another world. Pagano's stories weave together the mad, the mysterious and the dispossessed in rural France with honesty and humour. This is a superb cumulative collection from a unique French voice.
