A brilliant new interpretation of one of the most dramatic periods of British history.The Wars of the Roses didn't end at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. Despite the death of Richard III and Henry VII's victory, it continued underground into the following century with plots, pretenders and subterfuge by the ousted white rose faction. In a brand new interpretation of this turning point in history, well known historian Desmond Seward reviews the story of the Tudors' seizure of the throne and shows that for many years they were far from secure. He challenges the way we look at the reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII, explaining why there were so many Yorkist pretenders and conspiracies, and why the new dynasty had such difficulty establishing itself.King Richard's nephews, the Earl of Warwick and the little known de la Pole brothers, all had the support of dangerous enemies overseas, while England was split when the lowly Perkin Warbeck skilfully impersonated one of the princes in the tower in order to claim the right to the throne. Warwick's surviving sister Margaret also became the desperate focus of hopes that the White Rose would be reborn. The book also offers a new perspective on why Henry VIII, constantly threatened by treachery, real or imagined, and desperate to secure his power with a male heir, became a tyrant.Praise for Desmond Seward's A Brief History of the War of the Roses: 'It is hard to imagine a historian more in command of his subject... The result is history as compelling as any novel' Independent'This is a splendidly and vividly written book.' Evening StandardA Brief History of the Hundred Years Wars: 'A well-written narrative, beautifully illustrated, and which takes into account most recent scholarship. It is also a good read.' Richard Cobb, New Statesman

The third and last book in the all-new trilogy that will bridge the events of the hugely popular New Jedi Order series, which has sold four million copies to date, and our upcoming 9-book epic Star Wars series to be published in 2006-2008. With the Jedi Order splintered by conflicts of conscience, and a war erupting between the Killiks and Chiss that could spread across the entire galaxy, Luke Skywalker takes charge. His bold plan will play all sides against each other and carry those closest to him deep into hostile territory. It is also the only thing standing between the galaxy and the eternal war that his nephew, Jacen, has foreseen in visions. For the Jedi to succeed, they must step beyond the reach of any galactic government and undermine the war-making capabilities of all sides -- and Luke Skywalker must assume his fated role as true master of the Jedi Order.
"This book will send as many shivers down your spine as the original movies. George, if you're reading, hand Troy Denning scriptwriting duties on the Star Wars TV series. If we can't see his vision on cinema screens, the least you could do is put it on our tellies" (SFX Magazine)"It is a delight to watch Leia's burgeoning Jedi powers develop and these should provide her with a rich vein of adventures for the future" (Dreamwatch)
Aimed at readers of 13 years and upwards, this book takes a comprehensive look at the Ireland team, how they managed to get to the World Cup finals in Korea and Japan and who they will be playing. The focus is very much on the possible stars of the team, but will also include a guide to the opposing teams, the venues they will be playing at, as well as offering some information on Ireland's record in the World Cup and providing a full schedule of matches throughout the tournament. Fully illustrated with colour photographs of all the players, and with an exclusive foreword by the Ireland manager himself, this is the guide to Ireland's campaign in the World Cup of 2002.
Renowned forensic anthropologist Bill Bass founder of the Body Farm tackles one of his most baffling cases ever in this real-life spellbinder In 1978, 56-year-old Leoma Patterson left a bar in Clinton, Tennessee, and was never seen again. Six months later, a female skeleton was found on a wooded lakeshore in a neighboring county. The bones were consistent with those of the missing woman, and one of Patterson's daughters recognized a ring found at the death scene as her mother's. The bones were buried, and six years later, a relative of Patterson's one of the men she was last seen alive with confessed to killing her. Case closed.But the tentative identification made years before DNA testing was available to confirm it failed to convince some of Patterson's relatives. And so it was that in 2005 Dr. Bass found himself winding around hairpin curves to the mountainside grave, where he would unearth the disputed remains and collect DNA samples. The forensic twists and turns that followed would test the limits of DNA technology and of Dr. Bass's half-century of forensic knowledge."
Working towards greater access and inclusion in education and employment for young people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) continues to be a challenge with varying degrees of success.
Matthew Hesmondhalgh outlines the inherent problems with improving services for people on the autism spectrum, from specialised schooling to supported living schemes and examines the social issues and attitudes that people with ASDs confront in so many aspects of life. The author draws on his own experience of working at The Integrated Resource, which offers educational opportunities for secondary school aged pupils with ASDs and provides a charity funded supported employment programme for young adults with ASDs. He includes a host of case examples of young people and their parents who have fought battles for inclusion, explaining the obstacles they faced, their failures and their inspiring successes.
Autism, Access and Inclusion on the Front Line is a frank and honest appraisal of service provision for young people with ASDs that will both inform and encourage parents and professionals.
Following on from Access and Inclusion for Children with ASDs, this is another excellent, highly readable volume. The lively description of the everyday successes and disappointments faced by Matthew Hesmondhalgh's students with autism as they move into adulthood takes the reader on a roller-coaster of joy and frustration. For the uninitiated, the book provides an insight and shows how imaginative strategies can provide a framework for success. Those of us who are, like Matthew, "autism anoraks" will be inspired to do something to improve the state of adult provision for people with autism. -- The Teacher A young man finds work in an office, sorting mail and tallying the working hours of other employees. A young woman works in a dress shop. Another young man maintains contacts with people all around the world on the job. They are only a few of the people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) whom Hesmondhalgh, a teacher-in-charge of an ASD program within mainstream secondary school in the UK, describes in this refreshingly honest and bathos-free narrative. Hesmondhalgh also draws on his experience managing a supported employment program, giving a clear account of what it sometimes takes for people with ASDs to get an education, get employment, find housing, and live their own lives. He shows how, even in this supposedly enlightened age, society continues to erect emotional and financial barriers and makes convincing pleas for alternate funding and self-supporting programs. -- Book News It's a good book for any parent ready to think ahead of what could and should be achievable. It's a must for any professional out there involved in decision making about the long-term future of people with ASD. For those holding the purse strings to funding and policy makers, it's an essential read. -- Autism Matters An appraisal of service provision for young people with conditions on the autistic spectrum, which will interest professionals and families. The writer is honest about the problems to be found in efforts to improve services, and draws on a wide personal background in the field. -- Current Awareness Service (BILD) Essential reading. -- The Sheffield Autistic Society
John Morrill has been at the forefront of modern attempts to explain the origins, nature and consequences of the English Revolution. These twenty essays -- seven either specially written or reproduced from generally inaccessible sources -- illustrate the main scholarly debates to which he has so richly contributed: the tension between national and provincial politics; the idea of the English Revolution as "the last of the European Wars of Religion''; its British dimension; and its political sociology. Taken together, they offer a remarkably coherent account of the period as a whole.
These five books are known as the apocrypha books of the Bible, they were removed from the Bible by the Protestant Church in the 1800's. These books are as true today, as they were in the 1800's, before being omitted from the Bible.These are great books to teach in your Sunday school classes. They're also great collector items to have. Here's just one verse of what's inside these powerful books, quote: Wisdom of Solomon chapter 17:3 For while they supposed to lie hid in their secret sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly astonished, and troubled with strange apparitions. unquote: Do you now see why these books were omitted from the Bible in the 1800's? What is an apparition? It's a ghost or ghost like image of a person.
André Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinéma, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protégé of François Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not."
"Although Andre Bazin died shortly before the onset of what we now regard as the modern cinema, our understanding of this cinema wouldn't be the same without him. He's also one of the most scrupulous humanists and polemicists we've had, on a par with George Orwell, and these essays map out the busy highways we're all still navigating." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, film critic for the Chicago Reader"
Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, and Taron Egerton In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed forces, serving in London, in Malta, and at the Western Front in France. By war s end, all those closest to her were dead, and she had witnessed firsthand the destruction and suffering of modern combat. Much of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Brittain s Testament of Youth. In this elegiac yet unsparing memoir, Brittain focused on the men and women who came of age as war broke out, exploring their politics, their hopes, and their fatal idealism. Acclaimed bythe Times Literary Supplement as a book that helped both form and define the mood of its time, this searing portrait is also a testament to every generation irrevocably changed by war."

The Treatise on Musical Objects is regarded as Pierre Schaeffer’s most important work on music and its relationship with technology. Schaeffer expands his earlier research in musique concrète to suggest a methodology of working with sounds based on his experiences in radio broadcasting and the recording studio. Drawing on acoustics, physics, and physiology, but also on philosophy and the relationship between subject and object, Schaeffer’s essay summarizes his theoretical and practical work in music composition. Translators Christine North and John Dack present an important book in the history of ideas in Europe that will resonate far beyond electroacoustic music.
"Pierre Schaeffer's text in a definitive form in English is invaluable to a wide range of communities of scholars, practitioners, and general readers. It will have the effect of 'rewriting history' as well as stimulating and informing current discussions on the state of sound, music, and media in the age of smart technology."--Simon Emmerson, Professor of Music, Technology, and Innovation, De Montfort University
