Celebrate the dawning of a new decade with the fully revised Guinness World Records 2020. To kick off the '20s, we've created an electrifying new cover and curated a record-breaking edition packaged with thousands of new, updated and classic superlatives, hundreds of never-before-seen images, and a selection of eye-opening photo-composites that put a new spin on record-breaking...

A new decade means it's time for a fresh approach, so starting with our front cover, we've re-booted record-breaking with an all-new design. There's a new look inside, too, and thanks to our team of digital artists, we've created mind-blowing poster pages that will reveal some of our classic record holders in a whole new light. Our ever-expanding pool of international consultants and experts help us make sense of the world around us, so join us as we explore the vast spectrum of record-breaking in 11 superlative-packed chapters.

As always, we're committed to bringing you record-breaking from the cutting edge of science, and this year we've produced a feature chapter on remarkable robots with the help of award-winning tech blogger Evan Ackerman. We've also been out on the road, adjudicating records at events as diverse as the UK National Pet Show, Skill Con in Las Vegas and BubbleFest in Wales. Guinness World Records is nothing without its dedicated record-breakers, so we've also selected the best of the newly approved claims from the 50,000 applications received from the public over the past 12 months.

If you want to be one of those lucky few, look out for the Do Try This At Home challenges in the VIRAL SPORTS chapter - you might even make it into next year's edition!

R238 R189 Discovery Miles 1 890 Save R49 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

`Without a revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement.' Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, leader of the Bolshevik Revolution and founder of the USSR, was profoundly aware of the power of words. As a zealous orator and prolific writer, he used his words to launch a soaring critique of imperialist society and to theorize the development of the world's first socialist state. Much of his writing was translated into English in order to further the Socialist cause. This book is a compilation of some of Lenin's most famous sayings, taken from speeches, tracts, letters and recorded conversations. They expose his views on topics ranging from democracy to terrorism, from religion to Stalin's untrustworthiness and from education to music. Accompanied by a range of arresting images, including contemporary propaganda posters, photographs, portraits, illustrations and Soviet art, these aphoristic proclamations offer an insight into the atmosphere of pre- and post-Revolutionary Russia and the mind of one of the twentieth century's most defining political figures.

A Concise Dictionary Of The Boer War (Paperback): Brian Johnson Barker A Concise Dictionary Of The Boer War (Paperback)

R75 Discovery Miles 750 Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The South African War, popularly known as the Boer War, is memorable for many reasons. It was a final act to the great European scramble for colonies in Africa, and unique in that it saw the colonizing power making near-modern war on a group of white Africans. It was, however, not solely an affair between Boer and Briton. Indeed, one of the ironies of what was officially regarded as a "white man's war" is to be found in the numbers of black Africans who were also caught up in its violence, as both participants and victims. A century later we can more clearly see, recount and analyze events that have often been distorted or barely acknowledged.;This reference work starts with a chronology of South Africa from pre-colonial times to 1994, followed by a synopsis of the main events of the war. This serves as a convenient point of departure for exploring the more than 320 alphabetical entries that form the heart of the book.;These deal not only with the main personalities, places and events of the war but also with such general topics as the role of black people in the conflict, blockhouses, casualties, horses, infantry, medals, photography, railways, soldiers, spies, war artists, war correspondents, and weapons. A system of cross-referencing allows the reader easy access to related topics. There are four maps showing Southern Africa at the turn of the century, and an index to subjects which do not have separate entries.

R131 Discovery Miles 1 310 Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Johannesburg's evolution provides important insights into the history and transformation of South Africa as a whole. This work should therefore be of interest to readers who wish to understand the events that shaped South Africa in the successive eras of gold discovery, British colonization, Nationalist Party apartheid legislation, and transformation after 1994. The authors include information on the original indigenous inhabitants who occupied the area of the future city long before the first white settlers, and whose descendants, through their intensive labour on the gold mines, played a decisive role in the development of Johannesburg. The more than 600 alphabetical entries not only cover the economic and political history of the city but also give an account of its cultural aspects, including architecture, art, music and theatre. The authors have extended the scope of the book by including certain adjoining urban areas such as Sandton, Randburg, Soweto and Edenvale, some of which have only recently been brought into the orbit of Greater Johannesburg.;The detailed chronology which precedes the alphabetical entries highlights the important events which helped to determine the city's destiny.

Containing more than 400 entries, this work provides an authoritative source of reference on South African history. It covers the area that came to comprise the geographical territory of modern South Africa and ranges from the earliest evidence of human occupation to the watershed democratic election of 1994. Entries include the people, events, organizations, acts of legislation and themes that have shaped the politics of the country, its economy, and its diverse social fabric. Extensive cross-referencing enables readers to use the longer thematic entries - such as British imperialism, apartheid or African nationalism - as starting points for exploring related topics. Key readings are suggested at the end of most of the entries, and the book concludes with a useful index to subjects that do not themselves have separate entries. Aimed at a wide audience, this work should be a useful resource not only for students of South African history but also for general readers who are interested in the country's past and the ways in which it continues to influence the present.
