David Johnson
R938 Discovery Miles 9 380 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

One of the most eccentric and accomplished politicians in all of American history, John Randolph (1773--1833) led a life marked by controversy. The long-serving Virginia congressman and architect of southern conservatism grabbed headlines with his prescient comments, public brawls, and clashes with every president from John Adams to Andrew Jackson. The first biography of Randolph in nearly a century, John Randolph of Roanoke provides a full account of the powerful Virginia planter's hard-charging life and his impact on the formation of conservative politics.

The Randolph lineage loomed large in early America, and Randolph of Roanoke emerged as one of the most visible -- and certainly the most bombastic -- among his clan. A colorful orator with aristocratic manners, he entertained the House of Representatives (and newspaper readers across the country) with three-hour-long speeches on subjects of political import, drawing from classical references for his analogies, and famously pausing to gain "courage" from a tumbler at his side. Adept at satire and uncensored in his verbal attacks against colleagues, he invited challenges to duel from those he offended; in 1826, he and the then--secretary of state Henry Clay exchanged gunfire on the banks of the Potomac.

A small-government Jeffersonian in political tastes, Randolph first entered Congress in 1799. As chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee he memorably turned on President Jefferson, once and for all, in 1805, believing his fellow Virginian to have compromised his republican values. As a result, Randolph led the "Old Republicans," a faction that sought to restrict the role of the federal government.

In this rich biography, David Johnson draws upon an impressive array of primary sources -- Randolph's letters, speeches, and writings -- previously unavailable to scholars. John Randolph of Roanoke tells the story of a young nation and the unique philosophy of a southern lawmaker who defended America's agrarian tradition and reveled in his own controversy.

Imagining the Cape Colony - History, literature and the South African nation (Paperback): David Johnson Imagining the Cape Colony - History, literature and the South African nation (Paperback)

R401 R333 Discovery Miles 3 330 Save R68 (17%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Postcolonial history and literary culture is of wide interest currently. Imagining the Cape Colony revisits a key phase of South African history - the period 1770-1830 - addressing debates about nationalism, colonialism and neo-colonialism, and postcolonial/post-apartheid literary culture. The American Revolution of 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789 produced the most influential forms of the modern nation state. This book interrogates their impact in a specific colonial and literary context. The book examines how anti-colonial struggles of the past have been represented and inscribed over time, such as the early modern Portuguese literary and historical narratives of the defeat of Dom Francisco d'Almeida at the Cape in 1510. It looks at French representations of the Cape `Hottentots' - by Jean Tavernier, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Francois Levaillant - and analyses them against the anomalous treatment of the Khoisan post apartheid. The author reflects on settler nationalism as expressed in speeches, poems and novels, as well as Cape slavery and historical accounts of the Griqua nation. The book presents a wide-ranging survey of the very many textual `imaginings' of the Cape Colony; a historically nuanced investigation of theories of `nation' and `colony'; an exposition of substantial archival material on the Cape from the period 1770-1830; a politically engaged discussion of colonial/postcolonial and apartheid/post-apartheid literary histories; and a critical dialogue between South Africa's colonial past and post-apartheid present.

R551 Discovery Miles 5 510 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Customer-centric, market-driven solutions for fixing America's broken healthcare system-from one of the industry's most innovative thought leaders. Healthcare accounts for one-fifth of the U.S. economy. Everyone agrees that our current system is broken and needs repair. It must cost less, tackle chronic disease, and shift resources away from acute and specialty treatments into care management, behavioral health, and health promotion. The issue isn't what to do. It's how to do it. The answers lie in customer-driven reform, enlightened governmental regulation, and full-risk payment models that reward quality outcomes, service excellence, and efficient operations. Customers are demanding more value. In response, enlightened health companies are reconfiguring business models to deliver appropriate, accessible, holistic, reliable, and affordable care. According to this new model, caregivers inform and engage patients; payers reward health companies that deliver great outcomes and great service at competitive prices; health plans strive to keep their members as healthy as possible; investors fund innovative companies whose products and services delight customers; health companies employ liberating technologies that enhance system-wide access, fairness, safety, compassion, and affordability. In The Customer Revolution in Healthcare, top healthcare consultant and strategist David W. Johnson explains how aligning economic incentives with patient needs will deliver better outcomes at lower costs with superior customer service. The market will be won by disruptive, bottom-up, and customer-centric competitors who will deliver kinder, smarter, and cheaper care-to all.

R2,126 Discovery Miles 21 260 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Here is the result of over ten years of hands-on clinical experience by two experts wha have worked with the elderly. The authors explore the contributions of the creative arts therapies, specifically movement and drama therapy, to the individual and communal welfare of residents in nursing homes. Waiting at the Gate: Creativity and Hope in the Nursing Home eloquently demonstrates how movement and drama therapy facilitate the preservation of life, of meaning, and of hope by seeking the beautiful and playful aspects of the self, and valuing humor, flexibility, and spontaneity in relationships with others. The authors show how these values challenge the "waiting to die" phenomenon of the custodial nursing home and offer lively alternatives to the resident in the new institution of the 1990s.

R342 R269 Discovery Miles 2 690 Save R73 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The exploiting of stone in Cumbria dates back to the Neolithic period when volcanic rock from the high Lakeland fells was worked to make hand axes. In Roman times sandstone was extensively quarried for building Hadrian's Wall and forts like Carlisle. The industry expanded in the Middle Ages as stone was needed for high-status buildings like castles, tower houses and monasteries as well as for bridges and, later on, for dry-stone walls and road building. Cumbria has a wide variety of rock types that proved suitable for building and other uses, and quarry workings, large and small, can be found across the county. Countless abandoned quarries exploited limestone, sandstone, flagstone, slate, granite, sands and clays and gypsum, and quarrying was a major local industry in the fells, along the west coast and on the Pennine edge. For many centuries, men laboured in difficult and dangerous conditions, in all weathers and in very remote locations, to supply increasing demands for stone products, many of which were exported. Some quarries still operate today, supplying markets across the country. The story of how stone was won is an important part of our disappearing heritage: this book explores the rich legacy of quarrying across Cumbria.

For centuries lime was an essential ingredient in many aspects of life and work - such as farming, building and manufacturing - and the kilns in which lime was produced were a familiar sight across the country, not just in areas where limestone naturally occurred. The importance given to the industry is illustrated by the number of painters, notably Turner and Girtin, who chose to paint lime kilns either as the main focus or as an incidental element, and by the number of literary figures who brought lime burning into their novels. Lime Kilns: History and Heritage starts by discussing the uses and importance of lime, and how it has been portrayed artistically, then describes how lime kilns changed over time, from simple clamp kilns through small farmers' and estate field kilns to large commercially operated kilns. It is illustrated with contemporary and modern photographs, paintings and plans drawing on examples from across Britain. David Johnson has published and lectured widely on lime burning and is regarded as an authority on the subject.

This is the tale of two men.The first is Henry Tandey, an ordinary man later deemed to be `a hero of the old berserk type', born and brought up in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, who displayed extraordinary courage to emerge from the First World War as the most decorated British private to survive. The second is Adolf Hitler, who was highly decorated in his service to Germany in the First World War and went on to become one of the most infamous dictators in history, later bringing the world to the brink of destruction during the Second World War. It seems unlikely that their fates should collide. Yet in 1938 Hitler named Tandey as the soldier who spared his life on 28 September 1918 in the aftermath of the Battle of Marcoing - an assertion that came as a surprise to Tandey himself. The Man Who Didn't Shoot Hitler tells the story of Tandey's and Hitler's Great War, the moment when their lives became intertwined - if in fact they did - and how Tandey lived with the stigma of being known not for his chestful of medals for gallantry in service of King and Country, but as the man who let Hitler live.

When companies develop a new technology, do they ask how it might affect the people who will actually use it? That, more or less, sums up Brian David Johnson's duties as Intel's futurist-in-residence. In this fascinating book, Johnson provides a collection of science fiction prototyping stories that attempt to answer the question.

These stories focus on the same theme: scientists and thinkers exploring personal robotics as a new form of artificial intelligence. This isn't fanciful speculation. Johnson's stories are based on Intel's futurecasting research, which uses ethnographic field studies, technology research, trend data, and science fiction to develop a pragmatic vision of consumers and computing. "21st Century Robot" presents science fiction designed to bring about science fact.

Cumbria is a very varied county with coastal plains, river valleys, the Pennine edge and the Lakeland fells. It has a strong sense of cohesion and common ground. Farming in the county has improved over the centuries, and yet this is a subject curiously under-discussed in the existing literature. In this book, Dr David Johnson uses documentary and contemporary sources to argue that there has been visible improvement in Cumbria's farming. Starting with a discussion of the region's geology, topography, climate and soils, he gives a chronological account of the development of farming in the region, ending with a discussion of the ways in which farming in Cumbria has improved over time. This book will appeal to agricultural historians, as well as those interested in rural life, local residents and tourists.
