The Housekeeper and the Professor

579 руб.
He is a brilliant maths professor with a peculiar problem - ever since a traumatic head injury seventeen years ago, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. She is a sensitive but astute young housekeeper who is entrusted to take care of him. Each morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are reintroduced to one another, a strange, beautiful relationship blossoms between them. The Professor may not remember what he had for breakfast, but his mind is still alive with elegant equations from the past. He devises clever maths riddles - based on her shoe size or her birthday - and the numbers reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her ten-year-old son. With each new equation, the three lost souls forge an affection more mysterious than imaginary numbers, and a bond that runs deeper than memory.

Behind any occupation there is a professor, and behind every professor another professor. The literature dedicated to elevate the effectiveness of the educational act is plentiful, especially in Didactics although maybe with a lot of theory and little contribution to the teacher's daily practice. The present book locates the professor in the main categories and structural elements of the educational university activity highlighting the relationship of the educational and the instructive spheres, with the spiritual elements now as goals, now as springs or means in acquiring the knowledge. Rationality, education, ability, reasoning and method, are solid lattice to which is subordinated the pragmatic intent of endowing the university professor whit the effective tools for a competent act. If frequently affects the dispersion of the scientific baggage that do the professors end up burdening in exercise, till create interpretive contradictions, even important un-motivations in many of them, then the book would be source of knowledge, serenity of stresses, spirit tranquility, especially for that great mass of educators but avid of a didactic information.

Since the early 1990s, politicians, policymakers, the media and academics have increasingly focused on religion, noting the significant increase in the number of cases involving religion. As a result, law and religion has become a specific area of study. The work of Professor Norman Doe at Cardiff University has served as a catalyst for this change, especially through the creation of the LLM in Canon Law in 1991 (the first degree of its type since the time of the Reformation) and the Centre for Law and Religion in 1998 (the first of its kind in the UK). Published to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the LLM in Canon Law and to pay tribute to Professor Doe's achievements so far, this volume reflects upon the interdisciplinary development of law and religion.

At the Colloquium, Dr BanabasMariel Benjamin (Representative of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement),emphasised that the land question in Africa, should consider land in itstotality including; the soil, and all the mineral wealth and oil in the soil and the fauna and flora it sustains. So much was raised by Professor Ben Cousins from the University of the Western Cape, who extrapolated the debate of the agrarian question of capital and the agrarian capital of the dispossessed. We were stimulated to research further on this land and agrarian question.

4759 руб.
The present volume of The Catalogue of Byzantine Seals reached completion more than two years after the death of Professor Nicolas Oikonomides. As this volume is the product of three authors, some explanation of each one's contribution is in order. As to the first section of the volume, on the seals of the eastern frontiers, Professor Oikonomides identified the seals to be published and grouped them by geographical designation. He read and transcribed the seals, and began the commentary, which was complete in some cases and preliminary in others. To complete this section, Eric McGeer verified the readings of the seals and edited the existing commentary, and went on to develop the work left unfinished. This involved conducting further research on parts of the commentary, bringing the bibliography up to date, and recording parallel specimens published in other catalogues. The helpful observations and suggestions offered by the two anonymous readers are gratefully acknowledged. It is to be hoped that the final product is worthy of Professor Oikonomides' scholarly reputation, and that it reflects the esteem in which his colleagues held him. John Nesbitt and Nicolas Oikonomides identified the seals published in chapters V and VI on Constantinople. John Nesbitt established the order of presentation, verified the readings, and added commentary and bibliography. Nicolas Oikonomides wrote portions of Chapter VII. John Nesbitt verified the readings, smoothed the English, and brought the bibliography up to date. Nicolas Oikonomides wrote the final section, Chapter VIII, on uncertain readings. John Nesbitt edited this chapter. For the most part he left it as Nicolas Oikonomides wrote it, but in a few instances he deleted, modified, or corrected passages where dictated by the emergence of new information.

The source material for that opera has been A.S. Pushkin’s famous identically named novel in verse. It reveals the troubles and pain, that Tatyana, the actual main character in Tchaikovsky's opera, has to experience. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Professor Reinhard Seifried, my musical Director, who studied Onegin with me. My great appreciation goes to Professor Eike Gramss, my stage Director, who helped me so much to sing my first "Tatyana" on stage. I appreciate the help of Prof. Dr. V.M. Vasyliunas who read and commented on the manuscript.

Drama, Stage and Audience

4206 руб.
This book shows how a play 'works' in the theatre: how it generates life, meaning and excitement on the stage for the audience. It is self evident that a play must communicate or it is not a play at all. Professor Styan argues that, while communication in drama begins with the script, the value or power of a play must be tested upon an audience. In the theatre experience, it is not so much the elements of drama on the stage or the perceptions of the audience which are important, as the relationships between them. It follows that the study of drama is the study of how the stage compels its audience to be involved in its actual processes; it is a study of a particular social situation. Professor Styan discusses in detail the particular social situation, conditions of performance and physical playhouse in which a play thrives. There is a wealth of examples from all periods of Western drama. He especially deals with plays which make no pretence to 'realism', and much of the discussion turns upon the power and success of Shakespeare as a playwright. This book will appeal to students, actors and directors of drama, as well as the theatregoers. Professor Styan's insistence on criticism based on the theatrical experience will make this an important book for other drama critics.

The Case for Impeachment

Professor Allan J. Lichtman, who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential elections, makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. TrumpImpeachment will “proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust,” and “they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. ”(Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist, 1788)Professor Allan J. Lichtman, who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential elections, makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. TrumpIn the fall of 2016, Distinguished Professor of History at American University Allan Lichtman made headlines when he predicted that Donald J. Trump would defeat Democrat, Hillary Clinton, to win the presidential election.Now, in clear, nonpartisan terms, Lichtman lays out the reasons Congress could remove Trump from the Oval Office: his ties to Russia before and after the election, the complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad, and his abuse of executive authority.The Case for Impeachment also offers a fascinating look at presidential impeachments throughout American history, including the often-overlooked story of Andrew Johnson’s impeachment, details about Richard Nixon’s resignation, and Bill Clinton’s hearings. Lichtman shows how Trump exhibits many of the flaws (and more) that have doomed past presidents. As the Nixon Administration dismissed the reporting of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as ‘character assassination’ and ‘a vicious abuse of the journalistic process,’ Trump has attacked the ‘dishonest media,’ claiming, ‘the press should be ashamed of themselves.’Historians, legal scholars, and politicians alike agree: we are in politically uncharted waters. The durability of institutions is being undermined and the public’s confidence in them is eroding, threatening American democracy itself.The world wants to know where the United States is headed. Lichtman argues, with clarity and power, that for Donald Trump’s presidency, smoke has become fire.

Africa

The principal aim of this work is to provide a forum for leading international lawyers with experience and interest in Africa to address a broad range of intellectual challenges concerning the contribution of African states and peoples to international law. As such, the volume addresses orthodox topics of international law - such as jurisdiction and intervention - but tackles them from an African perspective, and seeks to ask whether, in each case, the African perspective is unique or affirms existing arrangements of international law. The book cannot come at a more important time. While international legal discourse has been captured by the challenge of terrorism since September 11, 2001, there are clear signs that other issues are returning to the fore. Political interest in Africa has undergone a global revival, and the OAU has been transformed into the African Union. Infrastructural challenges, along with those taking place in regional contexts, have effectively mapped a new politico-legal landscape for Africa. This, and more, is explored, and the key normative questions are addressed in a series of essays by leading Africanist scholars. 'This is a remarkable collection of essays that clearly and concisely demonstrates that Africa has and will continue to play a major role in fashioning new norms of international law and policy and contribute to its progressive development by affirming existing norms. Professor Levitt is to be commended for having the vision, leadership and intellectual prowess to produce this excellent text. The book signals a major shift from the study of Africa as a basket case to a normative market place.' Akua Kuenyehia, Vice President, International Criminal Court 'Professor Levitt's work, Africa: Mapping New Boundaries in International Law, is pathbreaking in the true sense of that word. Through old and new voices, it excavates the singular contributions of Africa to a discipline that is marked by Eurocentrism and imperial aspirations. The authors, taking their cue from the indefatigable and insightful Professor Levitt, establish beyond a shadow of a doubt the enormity of the normative contributions that Africa has made to international law. The book must therefore be seen as a defining contribution to the multiculturalization of international law. It is for this reason that Professor Levitt is among the most important American academics working and thinking in international law today.'

The Spirit Level: Why Equality Is Better for Everyon

939 руб.
Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's "The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone" is the most influential and talked-about book on society in the last decade - now updated with a new chapter on the controversy the book has ignited. Why do we mistrust people more in the UK than in Japan? Why do Americans have higher rates of teenage pregnancy than the French? What makes the Swedish thinner than the Australians? The answer: inequality. This groundbreaking book, based on years of research, provides hard evidence to show: How almost everything - from life expectancy to mental illness, violence to illiteracy - is affected not by how wealthy a society is, but how equal it is; that societies with a bigger gap between rich and poor are bad for everyone in them - including the well-off; how we can find positive solutions and move towards a happier, fairer future. Urgent, provocative and genuinely uplifting, "The Spirit Level" has been heralded as providing a new way of thinking about ourselves and our communities, and could change the way you see the world. "A big idea, big enough to change political thinking". ("Guardian"). "A remarkable new book ...the implications are profound". (Will Hutton, "Observer"). "The evidence is hard to dispute". ("Economist"). Richard Wilkinson studied economic history at the London School of Economics before training in epidemiology and is Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham Medical School and Honorary Professor at University College London. Kate Pickett is a Professor of Epidemiology at the University of York and a National Institute for Health Research Career Scientist. Her work with Richard Wilkinson on "The Spirit Level" was shortlisted for Research Project of the Year 2009 by the "Times Higher Education Supplement", and their book was chosen as one of the Top Ten Books of the Decade by the "New Statesman".
