Robert Leach
R298 R227 Discovery Miles 2 270 Save R71 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Ratios provide an extremely effective method of understanding company accounts. At their most basic this usually involves taking one figure from the published accounts and dividing it by another - however, this seemingly simple process can reveal an enormous amount about both the nature and performance of a company. 'Ratios Made Simple' looks at ratios from the perspective of an investor, providing a toolkit for investors to use to accurately analyse a company from its accounts. This book is divided into nine chapters, with each chapter looking at a different aspect of potential concern to an investor: 1. Profitability Ratios 2. Investment Ratios 3. Dividend Cover 4. Margins 5. Gearing 6. Solvency Ratios 7. Efficiency Ratios 8. Policy Ratios 9. Volatility For each ratio, financial expert Robert Leach provides a detailed definition, explains how it works, describes its use. Investors are also given a simple explanation of how to calculate each ratio, what the ratio means and how the investor should apply the answers in making investment decisions.This book provides the investor with an essential guide to the use of these powerful analytical tools - tools that should form a vital part of an investor's decision-making process.

Stanislavsky and Meyerhold (Paperback): Robert Leach Stanislavsky and Meyerhold (Paperback)
Robert Leach
R1,206 R894 Discovery Miles 8 940 Save R312 (26%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book traces the parallel careers of the two greatest twentieth-century theatre practitioners, the Russian masters Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vsevolod Meyerhold. It is particularly concerned with teh simultaneous development of their two contradictory--but perhaps also complementary--acting methods, methods which dominate the best acting practice today. From the same starting point at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1898, Stanislavsky and Meyerhold pursued very different artistic paths through the turbulent last years of tsarism, and the increasingly tormented first decades of communism. Yet by the late 1930s, almost unnoticed, they had begun to work together again. However, their fates under Stalin's tyranny were diametrically opposite: while Stanislavsky was virtually deified by the state, Meyerhold was vilified, tortured and executed. This is a unique story of artistic struggle, as well as of personal jealousy and affection, and it illuminates the methods and potential of contemporary acting practice.

An Illustrated History of British Theatre and Performance (Hardcover): Robert Leach An Illustrated History of British Theatre and Performance (Hardcover)
Robert Leach
R6,072 Discovery Miles 60 720 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

An Illustrated History of British Theatre and Performance chronicles the history and development of theatre from the Roman era to the present day. As the most public of arts, theatre constantly interacted with changing social, political, and intellectual movements and ideas, and Robert Leach's masterful work restores to the foreground of this evolution the contributions of women, gay people, and ethnic minorities, as well as the regional theatres of Wales and Scotland. Highly-illustrated chapters trace the development of theatre through major plays from each period; evaluations of playwrights; contemporary dramatic theory; acting and acting companies; dance and music; the theatre buildings themselves; and the audience, while also highlighting enduring features of British theatre, from comic gags to the use of props.

R1,726 Discovery Miles 17 260 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is the first in-depth study of Theatre Workshop, perhaps Britain's most influential twentieth-century theatre company. The book sets the company's aims and achievements in their social, political and theatrical contexts, and explores the elements which made its success so important. (See over for note on Theatre Workshop) Robert Leach has provided the definitive account in this full-length study of Theatre Workshop and the methods of its director from 1945 to 1965, Joan Littlewood. His book provides the historical and political context needed by theatre studies students (both school and university), who frequently encounter Oh What a Lovely War as part of their courses. It is the first critical analysis of the work of Joan Littlewood, Ewan MacColl and Theatre Workshop, including its unique actor training programmes. A book that has been waiting to be written, from a uniquely qualified author... Theatre Workshop is a burning issue in the study of political theatre. It answers the questions 'Who was Joan Littlewood? Why was she so famous? What was Theatre Workshop?' 'The most exciting theatre company I have ever seen, ' according to Sam Wanamaker. in the optimism of post-war Labour Britain; highly politically motivated, the company attempted to create radical political theatre which it aimed to take directly to working class communities. In the course of its political mission, and to further its own appeal, the company were the first British group systematically to apply the ideas of Stanislavsky and Laban to their acting practice. They created a form of fluid, Expressionist-style drama seen especially in the plays of Ewan MacColl, Shelagh Delaney and Brendan Behan, and perhaps most famously in the company's Oh What a Lovely War

It is a practical handbook designed for use by everyone engaged in the printing ink industry and the associated industries. It provides all the information required by the ink technical for the day-to-day formulation of printing inks. It supplies the factory manager with details of the latest equipment and manufacturing methods, including large-scale production, and gives guidance on achieving quality assessment and total quality management specifications. Care has been taken to maintain the value of the Manual for training both technical personnel and others who requiresome kn- ledge of inks. Readers with little scientific knowledge will not find dif- culty in using the Manual, but sufficient chemistry and physics have been included to provide an explanation of the underlying principles and theories governing the behaviour of inks for use by the advanced te- nologist. Suppliers of raw materials, substrate manufacturers, printers and print users will find the book a valuable source of information.

Directors in Perspective - Vsevolod Meyerhold (Paperback, New Ed): Robert Leach Directors in Perspective - Vsevolod Meyerhold (Paperback, New Ed)
Robert Leach; Series edited by Christopher Innes
R702 Discovery Miles 7 020 Special order

This book traces the career of the Russian revolutionary theater director, Vsevolod Meyerhold, from his early years as a founding member of the Moscow Art Theater with Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko, through his Symbolist period, his experiments with commedia dell'arte and other popular forms, and his glittering triumphs in the tsarist imperial theaters. Leach examines Meyerhold at the height of his fame and influence after the Russian Revolution and during his demise in the Stalin era. He describes in detail Meyerhold's "system" of theater, which involved the audience, the place of the forestage, "biomechanics" and actor training, and the mise-en-scene. An exploration of Meyerhold's legacy, which can be detected in the work of Brecht, Eisenstein, Peter Brook and others, concludes the study.
