Education, Reform and the State - Twenty Five Years of Politics, Policy and Practice (Paperback, New): John Furlong, Robert... Education, Reform and the State - Twenty Five Years of Politics, Policy and Practice (Paperback, New)

R1,291 Discovery Miles 12 910 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The last quarter of the twentieth century was a very important period in history of education. Beginning with the so-called 'Great Debate', the period witnessed intense public and political interest in educational issues, culminating in an almost unprecedented amount of education-related legislation, the most symbolic of which was the Education Reform Act of 1988. Some scholars have rightly claimed that the education system was 'transformed' during this period, pointing to major changes in the ways in which schools, further education colleges and universities were organised, managed and controlled. Others have claimed that these changes altered the power relationships which had underpinned the education system since 1944. Given the sheer scale and pace of the education-policy related reforms of this period, this edited collection brings together some of the leading scholars in education to reflect on the major legislative and structural changes in education over the past few decades. Published in the year of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Callaghan's Ruskin College speech in 1976, it provides a definitive contemporary history of education policy in the late twentieth century. The editors bring together some of the leading educationalists to reflect on the major legislative and structural changes in the field over the last twenty five years. The book will be of use to education students on undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as students and academics working in social policy.

William Goyen - Selected Letters from a Writer's Life (Paperback): William Goyen William Goyen - Selected Letters from a Writer's Life (Paperback)
William Goyen; Edited by Robert Phillips; Afterword by Sir Stephen Spender
R1,152 Discovery Miles 11 520 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Proclaimed "one of the great American writers of short fiction" by the New York Times Book Review, William Goyen (1915-1983) had a quintessentially American literary career, in which national recognition came only after years of struggle to find his authentic voice, his audience, and an artistic milieu in which to create. These letters, which span the years 1937 to 1983, offer a compelling testament to what it means to be a writer in America.

A prolific correspondent, Goyen wrote regularly to friends, family, editors, and other writers. Among the letters selected here are those to such major literary figures as W. H. Auden, Archibald MacLeish, Joyce Carol Oates, William Inge, Elia Kazan, Elizabeth Spencer, and Katherine Anne Porter.

These letters constitute a virtual autobiography, as well as a fascinating introduction to Goyen's work. They add an important chapter to the study of American and Texas literature of the twentieth century.

The Films of Wim Wenders - Cinema as Vision and Desire (Paperback, New): Robert Phillip Kolker, Peter Beicken The Films of Wim Wenders - Cinema as Vision and Desire (Paperback, New)
Robert Phillip Kolker, Peter Beicken
R863 Discovery Miles 8 630 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The authors trace the development of one of the most well-known directors of the New German Cinema that flourished in the 1970s and early 1980s. Examining Wim Wenders' career from his early film school productions through his mature works of the 1970s, this book also analyses the most recent works, as well as the themes and preoccupations that unite his oeuvre. As the authors note, Wenders' works have been profoundly influenced by American films, especially the 'road movie' genre. His own work often features characters who are always on the move, in an attempt to capture a glimpse of their identity and place in the world. They also represent a generation of postwar Germans seeking to redeem themselves and the history of their country by turning to American popular culture, particularly its music and movies.

"Data-driven systems for revenue optimization have transformed the transportation and hospitality industries, and are increasingly important in many other sectors of the global economy. Drawing on his unparalleled knowledge of current business practice, Bob Phillips has written the first book on this important subject that is both intellectually rigorous and accessible to a broad business audience--one that communicates clearly both the how and the why of scientific pricing and revenue optimization. It will be the definitive sourcebook for years to come." --J. Michael Harrison, Stanford University
"Pricing and Revenue Optimization is a much needed text in the quantitative field of yield management and dynamic pricing to improve business decisions. It is one of many increasingly important topics that have grown out of the disciplines of Operations Research and Management Science. The book offers a balanced presentation of theoretical principles and industrial experience, showing how pricing, market elasticity, risk, and market share affect a number of important business measures. It is particularly valuable to have the models and analyses that support software being developed for decision makers in today's rapidly changing markets. Faculty, students, consultants, and banking and financial managers should find this book of great interest." --Robert Oliver, former Chairman of the Board of Fair, Isaac & Company; University of California, Berkeley

We have grown accustomed to two beliefs: the first, that only experts can be designers; the second, that our everyday activities are harming the natural world. Yet, with new platforms, digital communication and engaged online communities, the products we can now design - and truly need - can be made by anyone for social and environmental good. Social design can see that primary school children learn to code, and uses local information in off-grid locations to create global change. Open-source design is enabling us to re-make our world right now. Structured into eight areas of application, from healthcare to education, this book showcases over sixty projects - not the kind you see in glossy magazines or online, but the ones that have made a genuine difference to communities and lives around the world. Rather than being client-driven, as commercial design often is, each project here is the result of designers who reach out, communities who get involved and the technologies that helping people to realize ideas together. From a playground-powered water pump in South Africa to a DIY budget cellphone, each of these groundbreaking projects is presented through fascinating and life-affirming stories, diagrams that reveal the mechanisms and motivations behind each design approach, and photography that celebrates the humanity of the endeavour.
