This volume broadens the critical understanding of Ann Radcliffe's work and includes explorations of the publication history of her work, her engagement with contemporary accounts of aesthetics, her travel writing, and her poetry. Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823) was the best-selling author of the eighteenth century and her Gothic novels set the tone for a generation of Gothic writers. Regarded as having made a pioneering contribution to the Female Gothic of the period she was also an important critic of the Gothic's different forms. This collection also includes an analysis of Radcliffe's account of her medical ailments in her Commonplace Book which provides a new way of thinking about female bodies in pain and how they are represented in her novels. The collection provides an important critical reassessment of a major Gothic writer of the period. It will be of interest to scholars working on the Gothic, eighteenth-century literature, and women's writing. This book was originally published as a special issue of Women's Writing.
Is there someone you can point to-when you were just starting out-that invited you to take a risk and said, "Hey kid, let me show you how it's done."?
Then, did you take that risk?
Were you willing to try something new? Something that would force you to stretch and grow? Did you take that empty-handed leap into the void?
Author Mark Bennett did and he shares that leap with you in "The Big Show."
Mark takes you along as his unlikely partnership with legendary television producer Fred de Cordova has them navigating the maze that is Hollywood on a quest to sell a series of Variety Concept Specials. From the then NBC Productions to ABC Entertainment, this newcomer opens closed doors and leads you on a backstage tour through the murky waters of the television industry. Mark gives readers first hand "How to's" from the legend, Fred de Cordova ("How to's" that apply to life outside the entertainment world as well).
Always mindful that in show business, most things fail, Fred de Cordova's insights into why some shows take the world by storm while others end up gathering dust is priceless. And Fred knows a little something about television shows, having directed and/or produced more than 500 shows including twenty-five years Executive Producing "The Tonight Show" Starring Johnny Carson (Fred won five Emmys for his work on the show).
Fred once said, "Mark Bennett speaking fondly about me? Tell him to stop." Luckily for all of us Mark did not stop it and you now have an opportunity to learn a little extra about Fred de Cordova and discover how a teacher and a student became soul mates.
Colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and/or rectum) is the second leading cancer killer in the United States - over 50,000 men and women die from it each year. This is a particularly alarming statistic since it is also one of the most preventable and most treatable forms of cancer. In fact, it is estimated that over one- third of colorectal cancer deaths could easily be avoided. But most people, including many doctors, are too embarrassed to discuss the subject openly. Here is one of the first books for the trade to address this all- too common disease. It contains invaluable information on: prevention - what changes in diet and lifestyle you can make today to help; screening - why everyone should be screened from the age of 50 and why you might need to be checked even earlier; detection - the pros and cons of various tests for colorectal cancer including: colonoscopies, virtual colonoscopies and FOB tests; treatment - how to treat cancerous and pre-cancerous polyps effectively. And much more.
Drawing upon the perspective of social identity theory, "The
Development of the Social Self "is concerned with the acquisition
and development of children's social identities. In contrast to
previous work on self-development, which has focused primarily on

Drawing upon the perspective of social identity theory, The Development of the Social Self is concerned with the acquisition and development of children's social identities. In contrast to previous work on self-development, which has focused primarily on the development of the personal self, this volume makes a case for the importance of the study of the social self - that is, the self as defined through group memberships, such as gender, ethnicity, and nationality. A broad range of identity-related issues are addressed, such as ingroup identification, conceptions of social identities, prejudice, and the central role of social context. Based on contributions from leading researchers in Europe, Australia and the US, the book summarises the major research programmes conducted to date. Furthermore, the closing chapters provide commentary on this research, as well as mapping out key directions for future research. With a unique focus encompassing both social and developmental psychology, The Development of the Social Self will appeal to a broad spectrum of students and researchers in both disciplines, as well as those working in related areas such as sociology and child development.
Advances in Responsible Land Administration challenges conventional forms of land administration by introducing alternative approaches and provides the basis for a new land administration theory. A compilation of observations about responsible land administration in East Africa, it focuses on a new empirical foundation rather than preexisting ideals. Presenting practical knowledge resulting from real cases, it incorporates empirical studies highlighting Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya.

It covers land information system design, innovative data capture tools and techniques, and algorithms and approaches to support land consolidation and pastoralist land administration.

The book highlights real cases, provides real data, and introduces novel alternatives to conventional methodologies in land administration.
