Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton star in this Academy Award-winning, epic retelling of the life and loves of the Egyptian queen. Desperate to hold onto her throne in the face of Roman expansion, Cleopatra (Taylor) employs all her charms in an attempt to secure an alliance with Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison). When Caesar is subsequently murdered, however, a vulnerable Cleopatra quickly turns her affections to popular Roman general Mark Antony (Burton). But although the relationship initially fares well, it's not long before the once proud general, now emasculated by the queen's charms, is reduced to a shadow of his former self that presages the doomed lovers' ultimate fate.

R768 Discovery Miles 7 680 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Keith Douglas was arguably the most important poet of the Second World War, although over three-quarters of the poems in his Collected Poems were written before he had any direct experience of war. Douglas had a short but eventful life. Born in 1920 in Kent he attended Edgeborough School and Christ's Hospital. He was already writing accomplished poetry at Christ's Hospital and had much of his writing published in the school magazine, The Blue. Dpuglas was awarded an Open Exhibition to Merton College, Oxford, where his tutor was the First World War poet, Edmund Blunden. At Oxford he became the editor of the student newspaper, Cherwell, and had a complicated love life. As an undergraduate he was published in Cherwell and was one of the poets featured in the anthology Eight Oxford Poets. He joined up when the war started but wasn't called for training until the summer of 1940. He trained in Scotland and Gloucestershire and attended Sandhurst. The following summer he was posted to the Middle East, spending most of the rest of the war as a tank commander in the desert campaign the Allies fought against Rommel. He wrote a colourful memoir of this part of the war, Alamein to Zem Zem, which was published after his death in action in Normandy. He wrote some of his most famous and anthologized poetry in Africa. Douglas returned from North Africa to England in December 1943 as a Captain and took part in the D-Day invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944. He was killed by enemy mortar fire on 9 June. The regimental chaplain Captain Leslie Skinner buried him by a hedge, close to where he had died; he reported that there was no sign of injury on Douglas's body. Burton's life of Keith Douglas is the first for fifty years. It makes use of recent scholarship as well as facts of Douglas's life that have recently emerged.

Richard Burton explores the extraordinary world of early to mid-twentieth century artistic gay Paris and in particular the links between Poulenc's sexuality, music and religious beliefs. This is the Paris of Cocteau and Radiguet, and of Dali and Bunuel, where the Catholic church was beginning to reassert its conservative morality as the influence of the French revolution and the Paris commune finally seemed to be on the wane -- a Paris where modernism and radicalism existed alongside reaction and religious faith. The disparate factors that came together in Paris during this period produced an artistic milieu quite unlike any other in Europe. And in the middle of all this was Poulenc, one of the greatest and most popular composers of the twentieth century.

Sir Richard Burton (1821 1890), the famous Victorian explorer, began his career in the Indian army in 1842. While in India he developed his linguistic talent, mastering more than forty different languages and dialects. He turned to writing books in the 1850s and, over the remaining forty years of his life, published dozens of works and more than one hundred articles. In this book, first published in 1856, Burton recounts his travels to Harar, a city in East Africa notorious for its slave trade activity. His plan was a challenging one, as it was believed that no European had been there before; upon arrival he claimed to be an agent of the British government and presented himself to the ruler of Harar. Burton was allowed to spend ten days there, and his account give a fascinating glimpse into a then unknown city and culture.

He can make airplanes crash, buildings crumble, start raging fires and unleash mighty floods. He believes he possesses the gift of evil, and dangerously demonstrates his power. What at first seems preposterous, soon becomes sickeningly real.

Morlar is able to wreak havoc at will. Brunei desperately wants to stop the next tragedy, but can he kill this man? If released from his mortal confines, how far can the power of his mind roam..?

Directed by Jack Gold from a script by John Briley, The Medusa Touch is a highly-effective, fast paced thriller which ends in a spectacular and spine-chilling climax.

"It is said if you take care of the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves. Richard Burton's excellent book takes this approach to calculations applied to the biomedical sciences...This is certainly interesting and engaging but it avoids being complicated." -Journal of Biological Education, April 2009 Biomedical Calculations: Principles and Practice is an accessible, student-friendly introduction to calculating, applying formulae and solving quantitative problems within these subjects. This book targets a problem area for many students and aims to give them the confidence which they are so often lacking when undertaking scientific calculations. It takes a unique approach to the subject and uses unit analysis as a central theme throughout the book to enhance student understanding. Clearly structured throughout, little basic knowledge of mathematics is assumed, but even the most numerate readers will be interested in the sometimes-novel biological detail. Numerous worked examples, supplementary questions and practice problems are provided and although the book is written to be read in sequence, it will also be a useful reference. The central theme of the book focuses on the value of unit analysis in solving quantitative problems, with explanations on how to avoid errors in calculations and in checking, understanding and deriving formulae and equations. As a background to this, there is extensive treatment of physical units, both individually (e.g. kg, m, mmol) and in combination (e.g. m s ~ , mmol L ~ '), and also of other aspects of quantitative thinking. A variety of topics (mostly from physiology, pharmacology and biochemistry) are used to demonstrate these calculations in practice. Key features: * An accessible, student-friendly introduction for all those hesitant in calculating, applying formulae and solving quantitative problems * An innovative approach to scientific calculations and how to work with unfamiliar formulae for the biomedical and life sciences* Includes modern, up to date definition of pH eliminating the need for logarithms and a discussion of the importance of pH* Clear introduction on how to use the book, guidance on units and unit conversion, and an appendix on basic mathematics and notation * Use of unit analysis as a central theme * Includes numerous worked examples and supplementary questions throughout the text to enhance student understanding
