6. A Vanquished Peace? Prospects for the Successful Reconstruction -

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: 40.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Democratic Republic of the Congo has endured a long, difficult and brutal chapter in its history of independence, characterized by chaos, turmoil, instability, violence, conflict and one of the most brutal wars Africa has witnessed to date. It is regrettably a chapter that has defied a satisfactory and peaceful conclusion- and one that continues to be written each and every day, adding further casualties in its wake with each passing year. As the country prepared to celebrate its 50th anniversary of independence on 30 June 2010 from erstwhile colonial power, Belgium, there is a real danger that the 'politics of forgetting' could once again set in- forgetting that this vast country is nowhere near being 'at peace' with itself and the rest of the Great Lakes Region. The country had accumulated a history of protracted violence, with little or no shared experience of genuine peace to offset these negative interactions. Throughout its various incarnations, as the Congo Free State (1885-1908), the Belgian Congo (1908-1960), the Congo Republic (1960-1971), Zaire (1971-1997) and finally the Democratic Republic of the Congo (since 1997), an enduring feature and image that has held sway in all narratives has been that of an entity immersed in an unrelenting sense of statelessness, further embedded in a perpetual state of chaos. At the turn of the twenty-first century, Congo had become the veritable epicentre of conflict in Africa and the dearth of peaceful coexistence in the country has vividly revealed the numerous flaws that peace can possess if it is devoid of structural stability, integrity and most importantly the ability to address the underlying causes and factors that continue to foment and facilitate conflict to take place in this war-torn nation. The aim of this volume is to serve as an 'audit' and appraisal of the DRC's post-conflict peace dividend - in particular to undertake a post-peace accord appraisal of the various gains achieved and also the numerous setbacks that continue to challenge the behemoth that is the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in its long and arduous journey to peace, prosperity and national unity. An observation that could be made from the very outset of this analysis is that the ideals of a positive, sustainable (let alone perpetual peace) in the Congo has largely been a vision etched on numerous paper peace agreements, yet remains largely unfulfilled in Congolese citizens' everyday reality. Even where some laudable progress has been made, the threat of large-scale reversal and a return to full-scale conflict and combat remain omnipresent ________________________________ Gerrie Swart lectures African Politics at the Department of Political Science, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa

8. All Math Words Dictionary - Large Print Edition - David E. McAdams

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.70  - Click book title for availability and further details

One of the difficulties many students experience in learning math skills has to do with the fact that an entire language, both spoken and written, has grown up around math. Students that acquire that language are successful in math studies. Students that do not acquire that language have serious problems with mathematics. This dictionary is designed to aid in the acquisition of the language of math. All Math Words Dictionary is written for students of pre-algebra, beginning algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra. This dictionary is written using the four 'C's of math writing: * Concise: Definitions are compact, yet understandable. * Complete: All words and phrases of interest to students of the target classes are included, plus a few just beyond the scope of the target classes. Tables of symbols and notation, formulas, and units of measurement, plus lists of properties of objects give the student all the information needed to understand the concepts and decipher many word problems. * Correct: The definitions have been thoroughly reviewed for mathematical and literary correctness. * Comprehensible: The definitions are written to be understood by students in the target classes. Abundant illustrations aid in understanding. This dictionary has: * over 3000 entries * more than 140 defined notations * in excess of 790 illustrations * International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) pronunciation guide< * greater than 1400 formulas, equations, definitions, examples, identities and expressions. While teaching high school math, Mr. McAdams noted that some students did not understand even simple math statements, such as “This equation is determinate.” Those students who had not acquired a basic math vocabulary were left behind, becoming frustrated and mentally dropping out of class. Mr. McAdams quickly added vocabulary exercises to his classroom teaching, but found that there were no adequate resources for vocabulary acquisition. All of the online math dictionaries and encyclopedias were either woefully incomplete, or written at a college level. He began by creating a vocabulary resource for his students, using as a guide the vocabulary from the textbooks the students were using. The list of words swiftly grew, and the task of preparing these resources quickly grew beyond what a full-time teacher could accomplish with all the other activities important to teaching. Mr. McAdams was amazed at the enormous size of the math vocabulary that students must gain to be fluent in math. He took the development of this important resource seriously, and after devoting nine years to its development, have created All Math Words Dictionary. The list of words and phrases to be defined was collected from various textbooks in use in the United States and United Kingdom. Each of these words was carefully researched to find all of the ways these words were used in middle school and high school math classes for pre-algebra, beginning algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra. The definitions were carefully crafted and critically explored to meet the goals of concise, complete, correct and comprehensible. Usefulness of these definitions for non-native English speakers was considered and pronunciation was developed using the IPA. Knowing that a picture sometimes is worth a thousand words, I added abundant illustrations to assist students in placing words in a visual context. The result of this extensive effort is All Math Words Dictionary, an important tool for math teachers.

'His courage, determination, skill and his undoubtedly outstanding ability as a leader are an inspiration to his Wing and worthy of the highest praise.'

Even so, he continued to be well-regarded and respected by the public. This biography is a celebration of Caldwell's military achievements.

16. Consulting Mastery How the Best Make the Biggest Difference (Large Print 16pt) - Keith Merron

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 36.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Most consultants are content to solve problems. Extraordinary consultants alter the culture of the client organization itself, changing the way the organization operates. Keith Merron shows that the most powerful tool for making a real difference is the consultant's inner stance - the attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, goals, and strategies that underlie the consulting practice. In other words, it is the inner qualities of the consultant that differentiate a great consultant from the rest of the pack. Consulting Mastery explores the deep inner shift required to become an extraordinary consultant. Through vivid examples, Merron contrasts the goals, strategies, and tactics used by most consultants with those used by masterful consultants to reveal the qualities and characteristics that will help you make the biggest difference with your clients. If you yearn to have a bigger impact on your client organizations, or even on the world as a whole, Consulting Mastery shows how to transform yourself from a problem solver to an empowering partner. Following a natural flow of learning, it details the conceptual foundation of consulting mastery, provides a vision of mastery in action, and outlines a clear path to attaining mastery in oneself.
