Introduction and Notes by Susan Jones, St Hilda's College, Oxford. First published in 1900, Lord Jim established Conrad as one of the great storytellers of the twentieth century. Set in the Malay Archipelago, the novel not only provides a gripping account of maritime adventure and romance, but also an exotic tale of the East. Its themes also challenge the conventions of nineteenth-century adventure fiction, confirming Conrad's place in literature as one of the first 'modernists' of English letters. Lord Jim explores the dilemmas of conscience, of moral isolation, of loyalty and betrayal confronting a sensitive individual whose romantic quest for an honourable ideal are tested to the limit. In this novel, Conrad draws on his background as Polish emigre, as well as his first-hand experience as a seaman, to experiment radically with the presentation of human frailty and doubt in the modern world.

In a high-tech world, the speech is a low-tech tool of communication, but it remains as important a mode of persuasion and entertainment as it ever was.

With examples from more than 200 speeches by Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Tony Blair, Winston Churchill, Barack Obama, George Bush, the Clintons, Helen Mirren, the Queen and many others, she produces an essential guide for all who write and make speeches in politics and business - including how not to do it.

Unaccustomed or accustomed as you may be to speaking in public, don't begin a speech without this book.
Public worship is core to the Church's identity: public worship nurtures and shapes the faithful; public worship plays a central role in forming new disciples; public worship is the shop window through which those on the outside may see the Church at work; public worship, in the form of baptisms, weddings, and funerals, may reach out into the wider community in acts of service and mission. "Everyday Public Worship" has been designed to engage with the ordinary experience and ordinary theology of Christian disciples as they work to develop and deepen their discipleship learning. In so doing it links the reader's everyday experience with the key influences that have shaped the Church's understanding of public worship, with the Scriptures, with Christian doctrine, with Church history, and with the landmarks in Christian liturgy. This book explores the themes raised by a serious and thoughtful consideration of public worship by engaging in conversation with three Christian disciples who came from very different backgrounds and who have very different experiences of and expectations for public worship.

Granted rare and unprecedented access to the Queen's world, Hardman provides a fascinating insight into the private and public lives of the longest reigning monarch since Queen Victoria, who, despite witnessing huge technological, political and societal changes over the course of her reign, remains a calm and steadying influence at the heart of British life.
Based on an ethnographic study involving three families who live on a Midlands council housing estate, this book presents portraits of everyday lives - and the literacy practices that are part of them - as a way to explore the complex relationship between literacy and social justice. Each portrait focuses on a different aspect of literacy in everyday life: drawing on perspectives offered by the long and diverse tradition of literacy studies, each is followed by discussion of a different way of looking at literacy and what this means for social justice. The lens of literacy allows us to see the challenges faced by many families and communities as a result of social policy, and how a narrow view of literacy is often implicated within these challenges. It also illustrates the ways in which literacy practices are powerful resources in the creative and collaborative navigation of everyday lives. Arguing for the importance of looking carefully at everyday literacy in order to understand the intertwining factors that threaten justice, this book positions literary research and education as central to the struggle for wider social change. It will be of interest and value to researchers, educators and students of literacy for social justice.

This is the first published edition of John Sinclair, Susan Jones and Robert Daley's research on collocation undertaken in 1970. The unpublished report was circulated amongst a small group of academics and was enormously influential, sparking a growth of interest in collocation amongst researchers in linguistics. Collocation was first viewed as important in computational linguistics in the work of Harold Palmer in Japan. Later M.A.K. Halliday and John Sinclair published on collocation in the 1960s. English Collocation Studies is a report on empirical research into collocation, devised by Halliday with Sinclair acting as the Principal Investigator and editor of the resultant OSTI report. The present edition contains an introduction by Professor Wolfgang Teubert based on his interview with John Sinclair. The introduction assesses the extent to which the findings of the original research have developed in the intervening years, and how some of the techniques mentioned in the report were implemented in the COBUILD project at Birmingham University in the 1980s.
