Three sets of ocean liners, each destined to be of three vessels, dominated the Atlantic in the Edwardian era. The race to build the biggest and the best began with Mauretania and Lusitania in 1906, followed by the White Star Line's Olympic and Titanic in 1911-12. Each of these pairs was to see a larger sister, developed as a result of changes needed or desired as a result of operating the two earlier vessels, with Cunard's being Aquitania and White Star's, the ill-fated Britannic. Germany's answer to these British behemoths was the Albert-Ballin designed trio of Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck. Through misfortune or war, two of these vessels would sink but the others led useful lives, with Aquitania surviving two world wars before being scrapped. Designed to be the absolute engineering achievements of their time, these nine vessels dominated the Atlantic. J. Kent Layton tells the story of the Edwardian Superliners in this fabulously illustrated volume, showcasing many images previously unpublished and never before seen. Rarely can one describe a book as definitive, but this volume truly deserves the accolade.

Learning to Labour

How Working Class Kids Get Working Class Jobs

Author: Paul Willis

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 135121876X

Category: Business & Economics

View: 6072

This book which has now established itself as a classic study of working class boys describes how Paul Willis followed a group of 'lads' as they passed through the last two years of school and into work. The book explains that for 'the lads' it is their own culture which blocks teaching and prevents the realisation of liberal education aims. This culture exposes some of the contradictions within these formal aims and actually supplies the operational criteria by which a future in wage labour is judged. Paul Willis explores how their own culture can guide working class lads on to the shop floor. This is an uncompromising book which has provoked considerable discussion and controversy in educational circles throughout the world - it has been translated into Finnish, German, French, Swedish, Japanese and Spanish.

Students, Teachers, and Leaders Addressing Bullying in Schools

Author: Christa Boske,Azadeh Osanloo

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 9463001484

Category: Education

Page: 318

View: 4976

The importance of Boske and Osanloo’s approach to identifying the crisis of bullying in our society lives within the personal stories shared in this book. Readers are reminded that victims of bullying are our own friends, neighbors and classmates, and those at every level in the community are challenged to be part of the solution. The hatred carried out by those who bully impacts all of us, not only the individual victims. Students, Teachers, and Leaders Addressing Bullying in Schools captures the tragedy victims face and the urgency of creating a new dialogue amongst our educators.– Judy Shepard, Founder, Matthew Shepard Foundation The most important experts on bullying are the students, parents, and educators who wrestle with its impact every day. In this book, Boske and Osanloo place them at the center of the dialogue to design lasting solutions and spur the national conscience into action. Bias-based bullying complicates systemic solutions by activating the “isms” and “phobias” that plague us all. The bold collective behind this book calls us to get over our own stuff and double down on our efforts to create safe and affi rming schools for all students.– Eliza Byard, PhD, Executive Director, GLSEN The brilliance and boldness of this book lie in two distinguishing features. First, inspired by the Boske and Osanloo’s vision, the contributors discuss bullying as precisely what it is: not an interpersonal challenge, not a cross-cultural tension, not an issue that can be conflict-mediated away, but a social justice concern that is connected to bigger societal conditions and injustices. Secondly, Boske and Osanloo reject the idea that academics are the experts of everybody’s experiences, and so they open the space on the pages of their book to the targets of bullying and their on-the-ground advocates. The result is revolutionary. If you think you understand bullying, I dare you to read this book.– Paul Gorski, Founder, EdChange, & Associate Professor, Integrative Studies atGeorge Mason University
