R247 Discovery Miles 2 470 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Saltmarsh Coast is 75 miles of largely undiscovered Essex, stretching from Stow Maries in the south to Salcott in the north, with some wonderful walking on the top of the sea walls amid some marvellous scenery. Mixed in with the salty air and cries of sea birds are hundreds of years of rich and absorbing Essex history and distant echoes of the people who made this such a fascinating area. This, then, is the Saltmarsh Coast.

Frank Porter Graham (1886-1972) was one of the most consequential white southerners of the twentieth century. Born in Fayetteville and raised in Charlotte, Graham became an active and popular student leader at the University of North Carolina. After earning a graduate degree from Columbia University and serving as a marine during World War I, he taught history at UNC, and in 1930, he became the university's fifteenth president. Affectionately known as "Dr. Frank," Graham spent two decades overseeing UNC's development into a world-class public institution. But he regularly faced controversy, especially as he was increasingly drawn into national leadership on matters such as intellectual freedom and the rights of workers. As a southern liberal, Graham became a prominent New Dealer, negotiator, and briefly a U.S. senator. Graham's reputation for problem solving through compromise led him into service under several presidents as a United Nations mediator, and he was outspoken as a white southerner regarding civil rights. Brimming with fresh insights, this definitive biography reveals how a personally modest public servant took his place on the national and world stage and, along the way, helped transform North Carolina.

Understanding and Teaching the Holocaust (Hardcover): Laura Hilton, Avinoam Patt Understanding and Teaching the Holocaust (Hardcover)
Laura Hilton, Avinoam Patt
R719 Discovery Miles 7 190 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Few topics in modern history draw the attention that the Holocaust does. The Shoah has become synonymous with unspeakable atrocity and unbearable suffering. Yet it has also been used to teach tolerance, empathy, resistance, and hope. Understanding and Teaching the Holocaust provides a starting point for teachers in many disciplines to illuminate this crucial event in world history for students. Using a vast array of source materials-from literature and film to survivor testimonies and interviews-the contributors demonstrate how to guide students through these sensitive and painful subjects within their specific historical and social contexts. Each chapter provides pedagogical case studies for teaching content such as antisemitism, resistance and rescue, and the postwar lives of displaced persons. It will transform how students learn about the Holocaust and the circumstances surrounding it.

R622 R529 Discovery Miles 5 290 Save R93 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Forty years after their first groundbreaking work of feminist literary theory, The Madwoman in the Attic, award-winning collaborators Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar map the literary history of feminism's second wave. In Still Mad, they offer lively readings of major works by such writers as Sylvia Plath, Lorraine Hansberry, Adrienne Rich, Ursula K. Le Guin, Maxine Hong Kingston, Gloria Anzaldua and Toni Morrison. To address shifting social attitudes over seven decades, they discuss polemics by thinkers from Kate Millett and Susan Sontag to Audre Lorde, Andrea Dworkin and Judith Butler. As Gilbert and Gubar chart feminist gains-including creative new forms of protests and changing attitudes toward gender and sexuality-they show how the legacies of second wave feminists, and the misogynistic culture they fought, extend to the present. In doing so, they celebrate the diversity and urgency of women who have turned passionate rage into powerful writing.

Planting the World - Joseph Banks and His Collectors: an Adventurous History of Botany (Paperback): Jordan Goodman Planting the World - Joseph Banks and His Collectors: an Adventurous History of Botany (Paperback)
Jordan Goodman
R234 Discovery Miles 2 340 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

'Based on meticulous research in original sources ... Goodman illustrates vividly how adept [Banks] was ... Shining a light on individuals whose achievements are relatively uncelebrated' Jenny Uglow, New York Review of Books A bold new history of how botany and global plant collecting - centred at Kew Gardens and driven by Joseph Banks - transformed the earth. Botany was the darling and the powerhouse of the eighteenth century. As European ships ventured across the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans, discovery bloomed. Bounties of new plants were brought back, and their arrival meant much more than improved flowerbeds - it offered a new scientific frontier that would transform Europe's industry, medicine, eating and drinking habits, and even fashion. Joseph Banks was the dynamo for this momentous change. As botanist for James Cook's great voyage to the South Pacific on the Endeavour, Banks collected plants on a vast scale, armed with the vision - as a child of the Enlightenment - that to travel physically was to advance intellectually. His thinking was as intrepid as Cook's seafaring: he commissioned radically influential and physically daring expeditions such as those of Francis Masson to the Cape Colony, George Staunton to China, George Caley to Australia, William Bligh to Tahiti and Jamaica, among many others. Jordan Goodman's epic history follows these high seas adventurers and their influence in Europe, as well as taking us back to the early years of Kew Gardens, which Banks developed devotedly across the course of his life, transforming it into one of the world's largest and most diverse botanical gardens. In a rip-roaring global expedition, based on original sources in many languages, Goodman gives a momentous history of how the discoveries made by Banks and his collectors advanced scientific understanding around the world.

Met die uitbreek van die Anglo-Boereoorlog in 1899 vertrek MJ de Jager as luitenant van die Staatsartillerie van die ZAR na die Natalse front. Hy onderskei homself tydens die veldslae by Modderspruit, Colenso, Ladysmith en Platrand. Na die slag van Donkerhoek op 11 Junie 1900 neem hy vir anderhalfjaar deel aan die guerillafase van die Anglo-Boereoorlog. Op 26 Januarie 1902 word hy in die distrik Ermelo gevange geneem en na St. Helena verban. Hy sit sy militêre loopbaan in die Transvaalse Polisie en die Unie-verdedigingsmag voort. Na die Suidwes-veldtog word hy hoof van die Unie-besettingsmag in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika en vestig hom op ’n plaas naby Windhoek. Hy word uiteindelik tot generaal bevorder, maar sy roemryke loopbaan word deur sy skielike dood in 1939 kortgeknip. De Jager se oorspronklike “Gedenkboek” het ook ’n veelbewoë geskiedenis en word nou vir die eerste keer gepubliseer nadat dit naelskraaps aan die aanslae van vuur en rysmiere ontkom het en daarná vir 60 jaar jaloers deur sy familie bewaar is.
