Sovereignty and Goodness of God by Mary Rowlandson

by Neal Salisbury

Mary Rowlandson's The Sovereignty and Goodness of God, first published in 1682, is an English Puritan woman's account of her captivity among Native Americans during King Philip's, or Metacom's, War (1675-76) in southeastern New England. In this new edition, 21 related documents support Rowlandson's text, which is reprinted from the earliest surviving edition of the narrative. Neal Salisbury's revised introduction reflects the changes in scholars' understandings of issues relating to Rowlandson's captivity and her narrative that have occurred in the twenty years since the publication of the first edition. Five new related documents include a little-known narrative of Muslim captivity by a Puritan contemporary of Rowlandson's, a treaty that exhibits the motives of both English and Native American signers, an account of the forced removal of Christian Indians to Deer Island during Metacom's War, and two visual documents. The volume's document headnotes, footnotes, and appendices have been thoroughly revised in light of recent research and interpretations.

The Sovereignty of Good

by Iris Murdoch

Iris Murdoch was one of the great philosophers and novelists of the twentieth century and The Sovereignty of Good is her most important and enduring philosophical work. She argues that philosophy has focused, mistakenly, on what it is right to do rather than good to be and that only by restoring the notion of ‘vision’ to moral thinking can this distortion be corrected. This brilliant work shows why Iris Murdoch remains essential reading: a vivid and uncompromising style, a commitment to forceful argument, and a courage to go against the grain. With a foreword by Mary Midgley.

Soviet Field Fortifications 1941-45

by Gordon Rottman Chris Taylor

From June 1941, the Soviets were forced to undertake large-scale defensive operations in the face of the overwhelming German blitzkrieg assault, operations which ran counter to their preference for highly mobile, offensive warfare. Lessons were quickly learned across a wide variety of terrain and climates, including the open steppes, dense forests, wooded swamps, cities, and in snow and ice, where the availability of construction materials differed greatly. The first to cover this topic in the English language and containing detailed information about the trenches, bunkers, observation posts, and weapon positions, this book examines field fortifications built from local materials by infantrymen, as well as their use of mines, field camouflage techniques, and construction tools. It provides a first fascinating insight into Russian defensive attempts against the overwhelming might of the German Army.

Soviet Partisan 1941-45

by Andrei Karachtchouk Nik Cornish

The partisan war in the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1944 has been the subject of considerable political manipulation in the decades following 1945. In great part this was due to the need to project the image of a country united behind Joseph Stalin and the Communist regime when the truth was much more complex than that. The opening weeks of Operation Barbarossa had exposed the lack of unity in the Soviet Empire as nationalist and anti-Communist groups emerged in the western provinces such as Belo Russia, Galicia, Bukovina, Ukraine and the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Consequently it was vital for the survival of the Soviet Union that such groups were countered in situ and that the authority of Moscow was maintained in what were known as the Occupied Territories. During the summer of 1941 plans, dormant since the 1930s, for the conduct of partisan warfare behind the lines of an invading force were resurrected. The plans were intended to make life for the invaders as problematic as possible by acts of sabotage, but most important of all to maintain the physical presence of Soviet authority.

Space and Self: Active Learning by Means of the Little Room

by Lilli Nielsen

In 1980 Dr. Nielsen, a Danish educator, was asked to evaluate a 20-month-old blind boy who was severely developmentally delayed. Her observations of this child helped her formulate ideas that led to her creation of the "Little Room", a structured environment through which blind children can learn to explore their surroundings. Nielsen's approach is known as "active learning," as the child becomes motivated to experiment and explore when his surroundings are interesting and when he/she is free from adult interference. This book is packed with specific suggestions for parents and teachers, and gives a detailed explanation of the "Little Room" and how it should be used.

Space Rocks!

by Tom O'Donnell

The thrilling intergalactic adventures of four kids in space--as told by Chorkle, a hilarious alien! It all happened because of Feeney's Original Astronaut Ice Cream. Those accursed pink bars entranced me with their sugary magic! But I digress . . . Life on Gelo was fine until the fur-headed "humans" arrived. They invaded our peaceful asteroid with their loud drill machines and their endless greed, stealing our precious Iridium to take back to their weird looking blue-and-green planet. Then the mothership took off and four little hair-heads were marooned here. But thank Jalasu Jhuk that Hollins, Becky, Nicki, and Little Gus are actually pretty cool. They have awesome gadgets like hologram games and rocket bikes, and they can pilot starships! But there's plenty the juvenile humans don't know, like how to fight a ferocious thyss-cat or ride a giant usk-lizard. They're decidedly terrible at dealing with my stink-gland. Luckily the Earthlings have me, Chorkle, and all five of my eyes to look after them. If only I knew how to help them get back home . . .
