Her best friend's father had broken his leg in a car crash, and she had offered to help him out while he recovered. But, deep down inside, she knew that something else--or, rather, someone else--was behind her offer. While she was helping Morgan Brownfield recuperate, she would have a chance to spend time with his son, Cole. Since the day she'd met him last summer, she hadn't been able to forget the tall, quiet cop with the solemn eyes. She'd fallen for him, and she wasn't about to let love slip through her fingers just because he lived halfway across the country. Cole was wary from the minute Debbie arrived. He'd faced stakeouts and drug busts without fear, but this woman had single-handedly sent him running for cover. He'd chosen to lead a solitary life for a reason, and there was no way on earth he was going to let her weaken his resolve. The problem was, his heart had other ideas.

Gentlemen Volunteers

by George Plimpton Arlen J. Hansen

They left Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Michigan, and Stanford to drive ambulances on the French front, and on the killing fields of World War I they learned that war was no place for gentlemen. The tale of the American volunteer ambulance drivers of the First World War is one of gallantry amid gore; manners amid madness. Arlen J. Hansen's Gentlemen Volunteers brings to life the entire story of the men-and women-who formed the first ambulance corps, and who went on to redefine American culture. Some were to become legends-Ernest Hemingway, e. e. cummings, Malcolm Cowley, and Walt Disney-but all were part of a generation seeking something greater and grander than what they could find at home.The war in France beckoned them, promising glory, romance, and escape. Between 1914 and 1917 (when the United States officially entered the war), they volunteered by the thousands, abandoning college campuses and prep schools across the nation and leaving behind an America determined not to be drawn into a "European war." What the volunteers found in France was carnage on an unprecedented scale. Here is a spellbinding account of a remarkable time; the legacy of the ambulance drivers of WWI endures to this day.

Geoffrey Hill: The Drama Of Reason (Modern Poetry Series #9)

by Alex Pestell

Geoffrey Hill (1932-2016) was often hailed as one of the most important - and one of the most difficult - poets of his lifetime. This book is a timely investigation into a writer whose work seems simultaneously to invite analysis and to refuse explanations of its sensuous, allusive language. <P><P> It provides an introduction to Hill's work for readers coming to it for the first time and offers an account of his poetics that will be of interest to his more experienced readers. Alongside many close readings of poems spanning Hill's long and varied career, the author brings to light findings from the Geoffrey Hill Archive in Leeds and investigates the poet's important critical writings. <P><P>Hill's often antagonistic engagement with the thought of other poets and philosophers supplies the book's structure. Coleridge, Eliot, F. H. Bradley and Ezra Pound are engaged by Hill in a dramatic contest over what the author claims is his visionary aim for poetry: the realisation of the objective conditions of judgement. <P><P>Above all, Hill is presented as a quintessentially modernist poet - at odds with modernity, and at the same time creating a language answerable to its rich, traumatic complexity.

The Geographical Sciences During 1986—2015

by Liping Zhu Xi Chen Qiuhong Tang Shuying Leng Xizhang Gao Tao Pei Guoyou Zhang Liangfu Chen Canfei He Daming He Xiaoyan Li Chunye Lin Hongyan Liu Weidong Liu Yihe Lü Shilong Piao Fulu Tao Lide Tian Xiaohua Tong Cunde Xiao Desheng Xue Linsheng Yang Linwang Yuan Yuanming Zheng Huiyi Zhu

In four chapters and an introduction, this book systematically helps readers understand the development of the Geographical Sciences both in China and in the world during the past 30 years. Through data analysis of methodologies including CiteSpace, TDA, qualitative analysis, questionnaires, data mining and mathematical statistics, the book explains the evolution of research topics and their driving factors in the Geographical Sciences and its four branches, namely Physical Geography, Human Geography, Geographical Information Science and Environmental Geography. It also identifies the role of the Geographical Sciences in the analysis of strategic issues such as global change and terrestrial ecosystems, terrestrial water cycle and water resources, land change, global cryosphere evolution and land surface processes on the Tibetan Plateau, economic globalization and local responses, regional sustainable development, remote sensing modelling and parameter inversion, spatial analysis and simulation, and tempo-spatial processes and modelling of environmental pollutants. It then discusses research development and inadequacy of Chinese Geographical Sciences in the above-mentioned topics, as well as in the fields including Geomorphology and Quaternary environmental change, Ecohydrology, ecosystem services, the urbanization process and mechanism, medical and health geography, international rivers and transboundary environment and resources, detection and attribution of changes in land surface sensitive components, and uncertainty of spatial information and spatial analysis. It shows that the NSFC has driven the development in all these topics and fields. In addition, the book summarises trends of the Geographical Sciences in China and the research level in major countries of the world through an overview of geographical education in colleges and universities, the analysis of publications, citations and author networks of SCI/SSCI and CSCD indexed articles, and the description of Sino-USA, Sino-UK and Sino-German cooperation. This book serves as an important reference to anyone interested in geographical sciences and related fields.

Geographical Sociology: Theoretical Foundations and Methodological Applications in the Sociology of Location

by Frank M. Howell Jeremy R. Porter

The discipline of Sociology has a rich history of including spatial context in the analysis of social issues. Much of this history has revolved around the development and application of spatial theory aimed at understanding the geographic distribution of social problems, the organization of communities, and the relationship between society and the environment. More recently, the social sciences have seen a large number of technological innovations that now make it possible to place social behaviour in spatial context. Consequently, because of the historical disjuncture in the development of spatial theory and the recent development of relevant methodological tools, the relationship between materials describing both the methodological approaches and their theoretical importance a scattered throughout various books and articles. Geographical Sociology consolidates these materials into a single accessible source in which spatial concepts such as containment, proximity, adjacency, and others are examined in relation to such methodological tools as hierarchical linear models, point pattern analysis, and spatial regression. As these methods continue to increase in popularity among social scientists the ability to more generally understand societies relationship to geographic space will continue to increase in it importance in the field. This book represents a starting point to linking these concepts to practice and is presented in an accessible form in which students, researchers, and educators can all learn, and in turn, contribute to its development.

Geographies of Privilege

by France Winddance Twine Bradley Gardener

How are social inequalities experienced, reproduced and challenged in local, global and transnational spaces? What role does the control of space play in distribution of crucial resources and forms of capital (housing, education, pleasure, leisure, social relationships)? The case studies in Geographies of Privilege demonstrate how power operates and is activated within local, national, and global networks. Twine and Gardener have put together a collection that analyzes how the centrality of spaces (domestic, institutional, leisure, educational) are central to the production, maintenance and transformation of inequalities. The collected readings show how power--in the form of economic, social, symbolic, and cultural capital--is employed and experienced. The volume’s contributors take the reader to diverse sites, including brothels, blues clubs, dance clubs, elite schools, detention centers, advocacy organizations, and public sidewalks in Canada, Italy, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Mozambique, South Africa, and the United States. Geographies of Privilege is the perfect teaching tool for courses on social problems, race, class and gender in Geography, Sociology and Anthropology.

Geography Education for Global Understanding (International Perspectives On Geographical Education Ser.)

by Sarah Witham Bednarz Ali Demirci Rafael de Miguel González

This book presents the core concepts of geographical education as a means of understanding global issues from a spatial perspective. It treats education, supported by high standards, approaches, methodologies, and resources, as essential in exploring the interactions of the world’s human and environmental systems at local, regional, and global scales embedded in the nature of the discipline of geography. It covers topics such as climate change, sustainable development goals, geopolitics in an uncertain world, global crisis, and population flows, which are of great interest to geography researchers and social sciences educators who want to explore the complexity of contemporary societies.Highly respected scholars in geography education answer questions on key topics and explain how global understanding is considered in K-12 education in significant countries around the globe. The book discusses factors such as the Internet, social media, virtual globes and other technological developments that provide insights into and visualization – in real time – of the intensity of relationships between different countries and regions of the earth. It also examines how this does not always lead to empathy with other political, cultural, social and religious values: terrorism threats and armed conflicts are also essential features of the global world. This book opens the dialogue for global understanding as a great opportunity for teachers, educators, scholars and policy makers to better equip students and future citizens to deal with global issues.
