A Race to the Top - Hardback

£40.00

Description

Apprenticeships are the most favoured way of winning the global skills race and giving more young people a great start to their working lives. It is a race that employers and Government want to win. More parents should want it too. How are we doing and how can we ensure this is a race that the UK wins?

David Way CBE has a wealth of experience of apprenticeships. As a former CEO of the national Apprenticeship Service, he saw every aspect of apprenticeship success and the challenges that lay ahead.

David uses his extensive network of apprenticeship supporters and analysts to produce the widest range of insights into apprenticeships ever assembled in the UK. The contributors draw on their knowledge and experiences across Europe and around the world.

What is the current state of apprenticeships in the UK? What is working well? What more is needed to transform apprenticeships into the chosen route for ambitious young people and their parents? How can we ensure apprenticeships become the best means of attracting and managing new talent?

Will the Government achieve its ambition for three million more apprenticeships by 2020? How should success really be assessed? What more can employers, unions, trainers, schools, colleges, universities, careers services and others do?

Foreign Language

The Foreign Language of Motion by Alys Longley

£29.99

Description

The Foreign Language of Motion experiments with how the mobile, textured, abstract and kinaesthetic thinking that occurs in performance research might be articulated through different kinds of writing practices. Writing has been cast as monstrous—or at least violent– in its ability to disfigure, maim and destroy the life of live arts. Yet for many performance practitioners, writing is an integral part of studio-based processes, a necessary form of reflection and a site for creative experimentation and planning. This project explores writing that is coextensive with dance practice, in relation to critical theory that engages with writing as performance.

Theodore Dreiser The Titan – edited by Roark Mulligan

£30.00

Description

Winchester University Press is pleased to continue the Dreiser Edition, the venture begun by the University Presses of Illinois and Pennsylvania to publish scholarly editions of the complete works of Theodore Dreiser. A principal figure of twentieth century American literature, Dreiser has a centrality the stems both from the permanence of his best fiction and from his preeminent role in American cultural life during the first half of the twentieth century.

Roark Mulligan’s informative notes and commentaries reveal a depth of learning and a sharp critical sensibility. An experienced archivist, he has a strong grip of Dreiser’s compositional methods, as well as the ability to navigate among the various manuscripts and correspondence that preceded the first edition of the book. Mulligan’s choice of copy text is in itself exceptional: the 1914 copy proof, a version of the novel that, until this edition, was in a private collection, unknown even to Dreiser scholars.

Alys Longley: Radio Strainer

£20.00

Description

The book is part of the kinaesthetic archive project which experiments with how the mobile, textured, abstract and kinaesthetic thinking that occurs in performance research might be articulated through different kinds of writing practices. Artist books perform a series of page works. Abstract qualities that are central in practice-led research such as felt affect, physical tone, texture, space, intuitive sensing and the porousness of touch are evoked through a poetic written register that also attends to the choreography and materiality of the page. The accompanying essay discusses practice-led and critical issues that contextualised the creative process of choreographic writing. Writing has been cast as monstrous – or at least violent- in its ability to disfigure, maim and destroy the life of the live arts. This project explores writing that is coextensive with dance practice, in relation to critical theory that engages with writing as performance.

The Radio Strainer text is set in the font Avenir. Non-transparent pages are printed on 100% recycled fibre, coloured with water soluble vegetable dyes and are not bleached or de-inked.

Each book is composed individually by the author, in different experiments with sequence. Some books are organised around narrative, some chronology of when texts first emerged, some in relation to colour, some with the sense of palimpsest between transparent and standard paper. Other versions are organised around qualities of dramaturgy, text or character. This edition of Radio Strainer is printed in a limited edition of 40 copies.

A History of Uncertainty: Bovine Tuberculosis in Britain, 1850 to the Present

A History of Uncertainty: Bovine Tuberculosis in Britain, 1850 to the Present

£30.00

Description

By Peter J Atkins

A History of Uncertainty tells us that bovine tuberculosis caused 600,000 British deaths between 1848 and 1960, mainly due to infected milk and meat. While media interest focuses on badgers and culling, the situation is far more complex than the headlines suggest. It is likely to be decades before a resolution can be found.
