Brexit: The Uncivil War (DVD): Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Boardman, Richard Goulding, Lucy Russell, Liz White, Rory Kinnear Brexit: The Uncivil War (DVD)

"Everyone knows who won. But not everyone knows how."

The result of the Brexit referendum in the summer of 2016 caused a political earthquake that laid waste to the normally stable British establishment and sent political tremors across the world. This punchy and provocative feature length drama goes exclusively behind the scenes of the “Vote Leave” campaign, unpacking the personalities, strategies, and feuds of the winning side, and exploring the new world of data driven campaign tactics.

Brexit: The Uncivil War is not an analysis of who was right and who was wrong. It is the story of how it happened, and why - on the high street, in the campaign offices, and the darker corners of the internet. A drama of political ambition and personal betrayals with nation-changing results.

Ben Wheatley directs this jet-black British comedy in which a romantic break turns into a bloody killing spree. Sheltered teenager Tina (Alice Lowe) accompanies her new boyfriend, 30-something misanthrope Chris (Steve Oram) on an 'erotic odyssey' - aka a caravan tour of the North of England. But unbeknownst to Tina, Chris harbours a dark secret: he is a serial killer whose explosive outbursts result in the violent deaths of any random strangers who happen to mildly inconvenience him. As the body count mounts, even the clueless Tina starts to suspect that her new boyfriend may not be quite what he seems.

The Life of Leonardo da Vinci (Hardcover): Giorgio Vasari The Life of Leonardo da Vinci (Hardcover)
Giorgio Vasari; Edited by Martin Kemp; Translated by Lucy Russell 1

Giorgio Vasari's Lives of the Most Famous Painters, Sculptors and Architects (1550 and 1569) is a classic of cultural history. A monumental assembly of artists' lives from Giotto to Michelangelo, it paints a vivid picture of the progress of art in the hands of individual masters. No Life is more vivid than that of Leonardo, a near-contemporary of Vasari - not even Vasari's account of Michelangelo, whom he knew and idolized. This beautiful edition offers a literary translation that respects the 16th-century Italian, transposing Vasari's vocabulary into its modern equivalent. Martin Kemp is an eminent scholar, who has written on the vocabulary of Renaissance writings on art, and has co-translated Leonardo on Painting and Leonardo's Codex Leicester. Translated in partnership with Lucy Russell, the text will be the first to cover both the 1550 edition and the expanded version of 1568, and the first to integrate the texts of the two editions on the page. Discreet endnotes will provide succinct comments in the light of modern knowledge of Leonardo's career. Illustrated with all the works of art discussed by Vasari and a selection of Leonardo's studies of science and technology, this will be the perfect accompaniment to Leonardo's 500th anniversary celebrations.

German comedy written and directed by Maren Ade. In an attempt to reconnect with his career-driven daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller), divorced music teacher Winfried Conradi (Peter Simonischek) decides to visit her in Bucharest, where she works as a business consultant. Worried Ines is unhappy with her hectic lifestyle, Winfried takes it upon himself to dress up as his practical joke-loving alter ego 'Toni Erdmann' and integrate himself into her work circles as a way of cheering her up. Although Ines is initially mortified by her father's actions, the pair's mutual disdain for each other's behaviour begins to show signs of healing their fractured relationship. The film was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Teaching the Holocaust in School History - Teachers or Preachers? (Paperback): Lucy Russell Teaching the Holocaust in School History - Teachers or Preachers? (Paperback)
Lucy Russell
R1,084 Discovery Miles 10 840 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

If we expose students to a study of human suffering, we have a responsibility to guide them through it. But, is this the role of school history? Is the rationale behind teaching the Holocaust primarily historical, moral or social? Is the Holocaust to be taught as a historical event, with a view to developing students' critical historical skills, or as a tool to combat continuing prejudice and discrimination? These profound questions lie at the heart of Lucy Russell's fascinating analysis of teaching the Holocaust in school history. She considers how the topic of the Holocaust is currently being taught in schools in the UK and overseas. Drawing on interviews with educationalists, academics and teachers, she discovers that there is, in fact, a surprising lack of consensus regarding the purpose of, and approaches to, teaching the Holocaust in history. Indeed the majority view is distinctly non-historical; there is a tendency to teach the Holocaust from a social and moral perspective and not as history. This book attempts to explain and debate this phenomenon.

An introduction to the Stations of the Cross and Resurrection is followed by a complete set of reflections on the Stations, written by well-known contributors from public life: those who have made the headlines, those who write the headlines and those who reflect on the headlines in their sermons and in the broadcast media. Contributors include Ann Widdecombe, Archbishop John Sentamu, Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Peter Hitchens, Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Peter Stanford, Ruth Burrows and Sister Wendy Beckett. Individual stations reflect the personal experience of the author: Margaret Mizen, whose son Jimmy was murdered in an unprovoked attack in a baker's shop in South London in 2008, identifies with Jesus' mother Mary at the foot of the Cross; physicist Russell Stannard reflects on space in the Empty Tomb; Kelly Connor who, at the age of 17, ran over and killed an innocent victim, writes about the need to be forgiven. Other contributions come from an Army chaplain, the Chief Executive of mental health charity MIND, Anne Maguire (of the wrongfully convicted Maguire Seven, who spent nine years in prison), and a former Director of High Security in the prison service.
