Hood drama follows single dad trying to retrieve abducted son. Former gang-banging single dad O2 (Tyrese Gibson) is suddenly plunged into a do-or-die situation; trying to go straight for his son, Junior's sake, this recently paroled ex-con is forced to go back outside the law after his son is kidnapped in a carjacking. The resulting chase and shootout have left Junior in the hands of Meat (The Game), the vicious leader of the Outlaw Syndicate. O2's shady cousin Lucky (Larenz Tate) tries to mediate, but is torn between criminal and family loyalties. The only person willing to help O2 get his son back is wily street-smart hustler Coco (Meagan Good), whose path fatefully crossed O2's just moments before the kidnapping. When Lucky gets word to O2 that Meat expects $100,000 for Junior's freedom, O2 and Coco seize the opportunity to pit rival elements of the South Los Angeles underworld against each other. 'It's either all or nothing,' realizes O2. With the clock ticking down, the heat between O2 and Coco rises as they become a lawbreaking couple, on a tear through a range of Los Angeles neighborhoods. Can they outwit the underworld and save Junior and themselves?

R. S. Thomas (Paperback): Tony Brown R. S. Thomas (Paperback)
Tony Brown
R390 Discovery Miles 3 900 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

At his death in 2000, R. S. Thomas was widely considered to be one of the major poets of the English-speaking world, having been nominated for the Nobel prize for Literature. With Dylan Thomas, R. S. Thomas is probably Wales's best-known poet internationally. Tony Brown provides an introduction to R. S. Thomas's life and work, as well as new perspectives and insights for those already familiar with the poetry. His approach is broadly chronological, interweaving life and work in order to evaluate Thomas's poetic achievement. In addition to presenting a full discussion of Thomas's poetry, and its movements over time between personal, spiritual and political concerns, Tony Brown also examines Thomas's contribution to the culture of Wales, not just in his writing but also his political interventions and activism on behalf of Welsh language and culture.

Uncollected Poems (Paperback): R.S. Thomas Uncollected Poems (Paperback)
R.S. Thomas; Edited by Tony Brown, Jason Walford Davies
R281 R216 Discovery Miles 2 160 Save R65 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) is a major writer of our time, one of the finest religious poets in the English language and one of Wales's greatest poets. His output was prolific: over six decades he published some 25 individual collections of poems, as well as several volumes of prose. A substantial number of his poems, however, have hitherto remained uncollected, and often elusive - poems published in newspapers, magazines and journals (many of them obscure), as well as in private or limited editions. Uncollected Poems - published to mark the centenary of Thomas's birth - brings together for the first time a rigorous selection of the best of these. The fruit of several years' research by Tony Brown and Jason Walford Davies, the volume makes available work which spans the whole of Thomas's career - from an early sonnet to his first wife, M.E. Eldridge (included in his first, unpublished, collection Spindrift in the late 1930s) and an early Iago Prytherch poem published in the Dublin Magazine, to poems which are powerful expressions of the metaphysical meditations of his later years. R.S. Thomas's Uncollected Poems takes its place alongside Collected Poems 1945-1990 (Dent, 1993; Phoenix, 2000), Selected Poems (Penguin, 2003) and Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2004). It gives readers of R.S. Thomas's work access to much new and fascinating material. Uncollected Poems is a companion volume to R.S. Thomas's Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2004), the sequel to Collected Poems 1945-1990 (Dent, 1993; Phoenix Press, 2000), which only covers his collections up to Experimenting with an Amen (1986). Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 reprints in full the contents of R.S. Thomas's last five collections, The Echoes Return Slow (Macmillan, 1988: unavailable for many years), and Bloodaxe's Counterpoint (1990), Mass for Hard Times (1992), No Truce with the Furies (1995) and the posthumously published Residues (2002). There is no overlap between the two Bloodaxe editions: none of the poems in Residues, uncollected at the time of his death in 2000, is included in Uncollected Poems.

The Dragon Has Two Tongues (Paperback, New edition): Glyn Jones The Dragon Has Two Tongues (Paperback, New edition)
Glyn Jones; Volume editing by Tony Brown
R397 Discovery Miles 3 970 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The classic study of the English-language writing of Wales in the first half of the twentieth century by Glyn Jones, drawing on his personal acquaintance with writers like Dylan Thomas, Idris Davies and Caradoc Evans. Tony Brown had the opportunity to discuss the book with Glyn Jones before his death in 1995 and has had access to Glyn Jones's own proposed revisions and to manuscript drafts. This first paperback edition therefore includes some up-dating of the text and a new bibliography. Glyn Jones's first-hand knowledge of the writers, coupled with his shrewdness of critical comments, established the book as an invaluable study of this generation of Welsh writers. At the same time the autobiographical, first chapter in which Glyn Jones examines his own life and literary career - the boy who goes from a Welsh-speaking home in Merthyr, loses his Welsh as a result of his English-language education and cultural changes in industrial Merthyr, takes a job teaching in the slums of Cardiff, re-discovers as an adult the Welsh language and its rich literary tradition and becomes, in a full awareness of that tradition, one of Wales's major English-language writers of fiction and poetry - provides a "case study" of the cultural shifts which resulted in the emergence of a distinctive English-language literature in Wales in the early decades of the twentieth century.

`What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It's not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It's the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It's a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father's hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.' Sir Bobby Robson, West Bromwich Albion and England Dean Walton had no choice in his football supporting allegiance, he was born in 1960 to `Baggies'-mad parents. Over the last fifty years Dean has rarely missed a game at The Hawthorns and has followed his beloved Albion all over the world, watching them play in eighteen different countries. Follow Dean's travels through three divisions over five decades. From UEFA Cup joy on a warm Valencia evening to questioning his own sanity on a freezing cold night in Hartlepool. From Wembley success to humiliating relegation in Bath, every emotion is covered. Football is about much more than the match itself. This book will strike a chord with any dedicated supporter.

In the follow-up to his very successful Black Lies, White Lies, controversial talk-show host and radio commentator Tony Brown presents a practical plan to reclaim our resources and institutions from a selfish and exclusive power elite.

At the start of the twentieth century, argues Tony Brown, the world's economy was hijacked. In capitalist and communist countries alike, elitist groups took control of international trade and national banks, with dire results for the ordinary citizen. Ever since, capital has moved toward a single inner circle -- the Ruling Class Conspiracy -- who monopolize the world's markets and even its governments for personal profit. Their stratagems range from the "war" against drugs to deliberately induced racial conflict among ethnic groups in America -- none in earnest, all carefully designed to preserve a pernicious status quo.

But Tony Brown has a remedy. His provocative and empowering seven-step plan offers an opportunity to break free once and for all from the constricting control of the wealthy and powerful who have run the world for far too long -- including a point-by-point program for radical reform of the income tax and a proposal to muzzle the Federal Reserve Bank, which exerts unconscionable influence over the lives of every American.

Incendiary and persuasive, this book reaches beyond race to claim the high ground of historical, logical, and moral analysis. For nearly half a century of Cold War, America and the Free World were defined by opposition to Communism...but was this merely a red herring to ensure the domination of the haves over the have-nots? Read Empower the People, form your own conclusions...and hit the brakes!

Welsh Writing in English - A Yearbook of Critical Essays (Paperback, 2006-2007 ed.): Tony Brown Welsh Writing in English - A Yearbook of Critical Essays (Paperback, 2006-2007 ed.)

R183 Discovery Miles 1 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Now entering its second decade of publication, "Welsh Writing in English: A Yearbook of Critical Essays" is the only academic journal devoted solely to the critical study of the English-language literature of Wales. The "Yearbook" seeks to cover the whole chronological sweep of Welsh writing in English, and essays published to date include papers ranging from discussion of the earliest Welsh literature written in English--Ieuan ab Hywel Swrdwal in the fifteenth century--to contemporary writers like Gillian Clarke, Niall Griffiths and Christopher Meredith. Emphasis is, though, on the writing of the twentieth century and we have published important new essays on such major figures as Dylan Thomas, Glyn Jones, Vernon Watkins, Alun Lewis and R.S. Thomas.
The "Yearbook" consists of new (peer-reviewed) essays by critics in universities in Wales and the U.K. as a whole, as well as America and beyond, and, while the ultimate criterion is always quality, the journal seeks to publish work both by established scholars in the field and by young researchers publishing the results of recent new work. As well as some eight full-length articles in each volume, the journal also publishes shorter factual pieces--new discoveries, new manuscripts, etc.--in a "Notes" section, while the occasional "Forum" section seeks to stimulate lively critical debate arising from published papers. Each issue also contains an annual bibliography of new critical material which has appeared during the previous year.
In its ten years of publication the "Yearbook" has become a benchmark for discussion of Wales's English-language literature, as well as for the exploration of the links between the two literatures ofWales. A number of the essays first published in the "Yearbook" are already widely cited as key discussions of their subject and a number have been reprinted.
The "Yearbook" is a journal which aims to be lively, original, challenging, controversial and to be appeal not just to specialists but to be accessible to the interested general reader.

This book is centrally concerned with how mathematics education is represented and how we understand mathematical teaching and learning with view to changing them. It considers teachers, students and researchers. It explores their mathematical thinking and the concepts that this thought produces. But also how these concepts acquire cultural layers that mediate our apprehension. The book examines some of the linguistic and socio-cultural filters that influence mathematical understanding. But above all it introduces some contemporary theories of human subjectivity, in which subjectivity is seen primarily as consequential to, rather than productive of, our attempts to represent or categorise the world in which we live. That is, our sense of who we are results from our attempts to see ourselves against the various versions of the world that we encounter. Such theories trouble the very notion of mathematical "concepts" as apprehended by "humans." And in foregrounding this concern with subjectivity the book considers mathematics rather differently to styles more familiar in many instances of mathematics education research. The book proposes that mathematics can provoke us to think differently about our world and as a result enable our transformative capacities. Such an orientation may disturb our understanding of what mathematics is, how it exists in an "objective" sense, insofar as mathematical objects can be derived from social filters being applied to the world, but also serve as filters on the world capable of producing new social entities.

The book is centered on how major curriculum reform shapes mathematics and the professional practices of teachers. This book documents in real time the implementation of a major government numeracy programme and its receipt by trainee and new teachers. It documents the complete life span of that initiative. The account is targeted at an international readership in terms of how curriculum reform more generally shapes mathematics in schools and the practices of teachers. A key dimension of the book is an alternative view of mathematics education research in which the task of teacher development is understood at policy level where large numbers of teachers were interviewed to assess how policies were being processed through individuals. The book provides an easy and accessible commentary utilising contemporary theory to describe how such teachers reconcile their personal aspirations with the external demands they encounter in negotiating their identities as professional teachers.
