The Second World War was the most widespread conflict in human history. Involving over 100 million people from more than thirty nations, it completely reshaped the world as we know it and led to the birth of the modern era. It gave rise to world leaders both iconic and infamous, instigated the break-up of empires and set the stage for the Cold War between the United States of America and the Soviet Union, which would last for over forty years. In Britain, the war helped to solidify a national identity that lasts to this day, leading to the creation of the welfare state and highlighting the merits of an orderly queuing system. Clive Pearson takes us on a quick march across the battlegrounds of the world's deadliest conflict, at home and abroad. Witness the war's defining moments and international aftermath, and discover a few lesser-known facts you may never have heard of along the way.

About the Book:
Revolutionary new technologies developed over the past decade have completely changed the way humans communicate and transact business. Not exactly late-breaking news for most people of the world . . . except for those who are supposed to be marketing to them. While consumers, customers, and marketplaces have adapted to these new realities, most marketers have not.
Renowned marketing expert Tim Pearson explains why you need to sever your ties to the comfortable old ways of marketing--and bring your company's marketing into the twenty-first century.
Too many marketers still operate as if strategy necessarily depends upon predetermined budgets; advertising is the catch-all to every problem; and marketing results can't be measured. It all adds up to the age-old belief that marketing is an art, not a science--which couldn't be further from the truth.
"The Old Rules of Marketing Are Dead" is a road map for breaking out of old, established--and increasingly ineffective--routines and reinventing your organization's marketing by: Positioning marketing as a business partner--not as a tool for meeting a strategic objective Holding marketing accountable for results with the application of hard data-- not vague qualitative measurements Providing leadership within your organization--not following the direction of everyone else
From research frameworks and concept development to planning, budgeting, media placement, and program implementation, marketers have not kept up--to the detriment of themselves and their companies. Completely revamping old-school marketing is the only way to drive profitable sales, create growing brands, and increase market share in today's post-Great Recession business landscape.
Pearson calls for nothing short of a marketing revolution. You must throw out almost everything you hold dear and embrace technology, a new role in business, and real accountability. "The Old Rules of Marketing Are Dead" has what you need to reinvent your products, your services--and your future.

"A big-hearted comic journey about friendship, family, and a

From the year of Arizona's statehood to its centennial in 2012, narratives of the state and its natural landscape have revealed - and reconfigured - the state's image. Through official state and federal publications, newspapers, novels, poetry, autobiographies, and magazines, Kim Engel-Pearson examines narratives of Arizona that reflect both a century of Euro-American dominance and a diverse and multilayered cultural landscape. Examining the written record at twenty-five-year intervals, Writing Arizona, 1912-2012 shows us how the state was created through the writings of both its inhabitants and its visitors, from pioneer reminiscences of settling the desert to modern stories of homelessness, and from early-twentieth-century Native American ""as-told-to"" autobiographies to those written in Natives' own words in the 1970s and 1980s. Weaving together these written accounts, Engel-Pearson demonstrates how government leaders' and boosters' promotion of tourism - often at the expense of minority groups and the environment - was swiftly complicated by concerns about ethics, representation, and conservation. Word by word, story by story, Engel-Pearson depicts an Arizona whose narratives reflect celebrations of diversity and calls for conservation - yet, at the same time, a state whose constitution declares only English words ""official."" She reveals Arizona to be constructed, understood, and inhabited through narratives, a state of words as changeable as it is timeless.
A moving memoir, Dreaming of Columbus illuminates place as a force that shapes lives. Through recollection and reportage, Michael Pearson recreates the Bronx of the 1950s and 60s, the place of his youth, that "precisely known world, safe and claustrophobic, " an Irish Catholic culture filled with light and shadows.
Pearson renders time and place vividly through his lyrical narrative voice and generous spirit toward his characters. In a work that is both comic and sad, he juxtaposes descriptions of adolescent escapades with the grim discipline of parochial schools. It is in this Bronx that dreams of escape fuse with bittersweet memories.
The driving force behind Pearson's story is its people -- an enigmatic father, a steadfast mother, an eccentric and influential writing teacher, the boys and girls who shared his neighborhood, the high school girl who shared his vision and his life -- and the books that made escape and return seem possible.
Few writers go home again as successfully as Michael Pearson. When he literally and imaginatively revisits the all-but-unrecognizable Bronx of his youth, longing for its intense life, he concedes it was "close to paradise." We understand perfectly.
Located at the end of the Northfield to Sedgley ridge Cotteridge had some significant early settlements at Middleton Hall, Rowheath, Breedon Cross and Lifford.

This fine selection of images captures these changes.Paper making, chemical works, and metal industries grew up along the canals and were served by many wharfs. Not many villages can boast having four railway stations! Cotteridge was made into a thriving local centre by the surrounding industry and transport network. The park holds an annual festival of music, arts, and dance. Cotteridge is a busy communication centre with a thriving community spirit.
