For Who the Bell Tolls - The Essential and Entertaining Guide to Grammar (Paperback, Main): David Marsh For Who the Bell Tolls - The Essential and Entertaining Guide to Grammar (Paperback, Main)
David Marsh 1
R211 R168 Discovery Miles 1 680 Save R43 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

For Who the Bell Tolls is a book that explains the grammar that people really need to know, such as the fact that an apostrophe is the difference between a company that knows its s*** and a company that knows it's s***, or the importance of capital letters to avoid ambiguity in such sentences as 'I helped my Uncle Jack off his horse.' David Marsh's lifelong mission has been to create order out of chaos. For four decades, he has worked for newspapers, from the Sun to the Financial Times, from local weeklies that sold a few thousand copies to the Guardian, with its global readership of nine million, turning the sow's ear of rough-and-ready reportage into a passable imitation of a silk purse. The chaos might be sloppy syntax, a disregard for grammar or a fundamental misunderstanding of what grammar is. It could be an adherence to 'rules' that have no real basis and get in the way of fluent, unambiguous communication at the expense of ones that are actually useful. Clear, honest use of English has many enemies: politicians, business and marketing people, local authority and civil service jargonauts, rail companies, estate agents, academics . . . and some journalists. This is the book to help defeat them. 'A splendid and, more importantly, sane book on English grammar.' Mark Forsyth, author of The Etymologicon

Against the Jews and the Gentiles - Books I Iv (English, Latin, Hardcover): Giannozzo Manetti Against the Jews and the Gentiles - Books I Iv (English, Latin, Hardcover)
Giannozzo Manetti; Translated by David Marsh; Edited by Stefano U. Baldassarri
R561 R447 Discovery Miles 4 470 Save R114 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Giannozzo Manetti (1396-1459) was a celebrated humanist orator, historian, philosopher, and scholar of the early Renaissance. Son of a wealthy Florentine merchant, he participated actively in the public life of the Florentine republic and embraced the new humanist scholarship of the quattrocento, oriented to the service of the state and the reform of religion. Mastering not only classical Latin but also Greek and Hebrew, he gained access to a whole library of sources previously unknown in the Latin West. Among the fruits of his studies is his treatise Against the Jews and the Gentiles, an apologia for Christianity in ten books that redefines religion in terms of "true piety," and relates the historical development of the pagan and Jewish religions to the life of Jesus. The present volume includes the first critical edition of Books I-IV, together with the first translation of those books into any modern language.

Invectives (Hardcover): Francesco Petrarca Invectives (Hardcover)
Francesco Petrarca; Translated by David Marsh
R475 R445 Discovery Miles 4 450 Save R30 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374), one of the greatest of Italian poets, was also the leading spirit in the Renaissance movement to revive ancient Roman language and literature. Just as Petrarch's Latin epic "Africa" imitated Virgil and his compendium "On Illustrious Men" was inspired by Livy, so Petrarch's four "Invectives" were intended to revive the eloquence of the great Roman orator Cicero. The "Invectives" are directed against the cultural idols of the Middle Ages--against scholastic philosophy and medicine and the dominance of French culture in general. They defend the value of literary culture against obscurantism and provide a clear statement of the values of Renaissance humanism. This volume provides a new critical edition of the Latin text based on the two autograph copies, and the first English translation of three of the four invectives.

Leeds is the UK's third largest city and is home to a community rich in history, ambition and achievement. As the financial, cultural and commercial heart of West Yorkshire, Leeds is a city essential to the global economic system. Although only a small borough for much of its existence, in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries Leeds became a key centre for the production and trading of wool. As the Industrial Revolution progressed, Leeds developed into a major industrial hub, extending its reach into engineering, printing, commerce, health and education. Iron foundries were among other industries of extreme importance. The city then expanded, absorbing many of the surrounding villages and townships to become the urban centre we see today. Secret Leeds is a historical journey through this rapidly changing city, unearthing nuggets of its early history and spectacular development into the `Capital of the North'. The book reveals and unravels scores of fascinating and little-known details about Leeds that will intrigue and inform its many visitors as well as its current inhabitants, many of whom probably thought they knew it all.

CLIL - Content and Language Integrated Learning (Paperback, New): Do Coyle, Philip Hood, David Marsh CLIL - Content and Language Integrated Learning (Paperback, New)

R746 R704 Discovery Miles 7 040 Save R42 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) has emerged since the millennium as a major trend in education. Written by Do Coyle, Philip Hood and David Marsh and drawing on their experience of CLIL in secondary schools, primary schools and English language schools across Europe, this book gives a comprehensive overview of CLIL. It summarises the theory which underpins the teaching of a content subject through another language and discusses its practical application, outlining the key directions for the development of research and practice. This book acknowledges the uncertainty many teachers feel about CLIL, because of the requirement for both language and subject knowledge, while providing theoretical and practical routes towards successful practice for all.

The Euro - The Battle for the New Global Currency (Paperback, Revised edition): David Marsh The Euro - The Battle for the New Global Currency (Paperback, Revised edition)
David Marsh
R301 Discovery Miles 3 010 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is the first comprehensive political and economic account of the birth and development of the Euro. Today the Euro is the supranational currency for sixteen European countries and the world's second-largest reserve currency. David Marsh tells the story of the rivalries, intrigues, and deal making that brought about a currency for Europe, and he analyzes the achievements and shortcomings of its first decade of existence.
While the Euro represents a remarkable triumph of political will, great pressures are building on the single currency. Drawing on more than 100 interviews with leading figures associated with the Euro, and scores of secret documents from international archives, Marsh underscores the Euro's importance for the global economy, in particular for U.S. and British economic and political agendas.
Hidden facts and fresh insights from "The Euro": --How the legacy of France and Germany's tortuous relations affects the Euro --Why the United Kingdom is unlikely to accept the Euro before 2025--The impact on the Euro of the U.S. credit crisis--How the Euro has rebounded against the aspirations of its founders--How Italy and Spain have massively lost competitiveness--Why radical changes must be adopted to prevent a European upheaval

Studies on Alberti and Petrarch (Hardcover, New Ed): David Marsh Studies on Alberti and Petrarch (Hardcover, New Ed)
David Marsh
R2,447 Discovery Miles 24 470 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) was the most versatile humanist of the fifteenth century: author of numerous compositions in both Latin and Italian, and a groundbreaking theorist of painting, sculpture, and architecture. His Latin writings owe much to the model of Petrarch (1304-1374), the famed poet of the Italian Canzoniere, but also a prolific author of Latin epistles, biographies, and poems that sparked the revival of classical culture in the early Italian Renaissance. The essays collected here reflect some thirty years of research into these pioneers of Humanism, and offer important insights into forms of Renaissance 'self-fashioning' such as allegory and autobiography.

R2,177 Discovery Miles 21 770 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Most studies of political participation among young people focus on formal political arenas and conclude that young people are politically apathetic. In contrast, this book aims to establish how young people understand and live politics, using innovative research methods. As such, it treats age, class, gender and ethnicity as political 'lived experiences'. It concludes that young people are alienated, rather than apathetic, and that their interests and concerns are rarely addressed within mainstream political institutions.

Changing Patterns of Government - Reinventing Whitehall? (Hardcover, New): David Marsh, David Richards, Martin J. Smith Changing Patterns of Government - Reinventing Whitehall? (Hardcover, New)

R2,608 Discovery Miles 26 080 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This is the first comprehensive examination of the changing relations between ministers and civil servants in the UK since 1979. Drawing on evidence compiled from more than 150 interviews, this book provides unprecedented insight into the world of Conservative government. The authors also examine the external pressures exerted by factors such as the European Union, and they conclude by arguing that, despite recent claims about the end of the Whitehall model, many of the old features of the British system remain.

This major reassessment of the relevance of Marxism in the social sciences decisively rebuts claims that it has been consigned to the dustbin of history by the collapse of communism and apparent triumph of capitalism and liberal democracy. The book first considers how Marxism has engaged with various critiques including Postmodernism, New Right theory and Feminism before assessing its continuing utility as a framework for analysis of a range of substantive issues from class and the state to culture, ecology and globalization.

This broad-ranging and original text provides an accessible introduction to British politics since 1945, challenging many well-established orthodoxies.

The book offers a novel perspective on the development of the British state and of British politics over this period.

In so doing, it represents a lively and engaging contribution to existing debates, demonstrating to students the highly contested nature of political change in the postwar years. The book, published at a crucial moment in the evolution of the British state, provides a reassessment of the era of Conservative dominance as well as an account of the meaning and role of New Labour couched in the broader context of the postwar years.

"Postwar British Politics in Perspective" will be essential reading for all students and academics concerned with questions of social, political and economic change in Britain and for all those interested in the prospects for British politics.

David Marsh
R1,035 Discovery Miles 10 350 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The curbing of trade union power is often seen as one of the major achievements of Margaret Thatcher's premiership. David Marsh's book provides a broad-ranging introduction to British trade unionism in the 1990s and an assessment of the last decade's major changes in legislation, policing and attitudes. He concludes that while the political role of unions has been reduced, much less has changed at shopfloor level; moveover what has changed has owed more to economic recession than government action.
