In Dewey Lambdin's "A Hard, Cruel Shore," the year 1809 starts out badly for Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, and his ship, HMS "Sapphire." They ve extracted the sick, cold survivors of Sir John Moore s army from disaster at Corunna, got hit by lightning while escorting the army to England, and suffered a shattered mainmast which may end Lewrie s active commission if a replacement can t be found or fashioned soon; Admiralty needs troopships, not slow, old Fourth Rate two-deckers, so Lewrie must beg, borrow, steal, and gild the facts most glibly if he wishes to keep her and her skilled crew together.
Just when he imagines he s succeeded, new orders come appointing him a Commodore over a wee squadron assigned to prey upon French seaborne supply convoys off the treacherous north coast of Spain, better known as the Costa da Morte, the Coast of Death, where the sea may be more dangerous to him and his ships than the French Navy Basing out of newly won Lisbon, where Lewrie hopes his mistress from Gibraltar, Maddalena Covilha, might move, he s sure of one thing: it s going to be a rocky year that, hopefully, doesn t involve wrecking on the rugged shores of Spain "

In Philosophers as Educators Brian Patrick Hendley argues that philosophers of education should reject their preoccupation with defining terms and analyzing concepts and embrace the philosophical task of constructing general theories of education. Hendley discusses in detail the educational philosophies of John Dewey, Bertrand Russell, and Alfred North Whitehead. He sees in these men excellent role models that contemporary philosophers might well follow. Hendley believes that, like these mentors, philosophers should take a more active, practical role in education. Dewey and Russell ran their own schools, and Whitehead served as a university administrator and as a member of many committees created to study education.

Описание: John Dewey’s fame as an educational theorist is matched by his infamy as a critic of traditional religion. This interdisciplinary work explores Dewey’s philosophy of education in correlation with Christian theology, proposing that we see «theology as education». In conversation with Friedrich Schleiermacher (the father of modern theology), St. Benedict (the founder of Western monasticism), and Rowan Williams (the renowned archbishop of Canterbury), this innovative and accessible book develops a distinctive «Deweyan theology». John Dewey among the Theologians will be welcomed by readers interested in interdisciplinary theology, educational theory, religious education, and pragmatism.

Описание: Agricultural technology has moved on, inexorably, from broad-cast seed and the sound of the threshing flail, via the portable steam engine and the threshing machine, right through to the modern world of giant tractors and efficient farming methods. This book traces the broad sweep of the whole industry over 200 years.
Dewey Lambdin, the reigning master of maritime fiction, continues the adventures of Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, from his days as a midshipman to captain of his own ship and, though on somewhat dubious grounds, a baronetcy in the 23rd book in the Alan Lewrie series, A Fine Retribution.
Captain Alan Lewrie and his small squadron defeat four French frigates off northern Spain, winning honor, glory, and renown. So, why is such a successful captain suddenly without a ship, or another active commission? Why do rumors swirl that jealous foes' powerful patrons are blighting his career? Months on end ashore, even in entertaining London setting up a household for himself and his retinue, getting his portrait painted, put him in serious sulks. Well, the artist is the sister of one of his midshipmen, a delightful and talented young lady of a modern outlook, but not modern enough to become Lewrie's lover. Dare he risk a second marriage? Then, just when things are the rosiest, at last, Admiralty calls upon him to develop and command a plan to raid French-held coasts, not with sailors and Marines from his own ship, but with a battalion of Army troops carried in a squadron of transports. It's intriguing, novel, and a way back to sea, but...can he part from the desirable Jessica Chenery? And if Lewrie does, will his foes allow him to succeed? Be certain that Alan Lewrie will prevail, scruples be damned
