Revised edition of book previously published in 1997.
Author: Roger Langley
Publisher: Anchor Books
Category: Art, Modern
This is a revised and rewritten edition, with many new illustrations, of the study first published in 1997. It provides unique insights into the Newlyn art colony and the world of the Victorian professional artist. Langley was a pioneer of the remarkable colony of artists drawn to the south-west corner of Cornwall in the 1880s. Working mainly in watercolour, and a sympathetic and unsentimental recorder of the hard lives of the Newlyn fisherfolk, Langley made his name especially through a series of memorably dramatic watercolour and oil paintings. Included in this new edition are also examples of the artist's powerful charcoal drawings. As well as high drama, Langley was the chronicler of the simple, everyday scene in Cornwall, the Midlands, Brittany and Holland. Above all, he is a rival to Stanhope Forbes for the title 'father of the Newlyn colony', but unlike Forbes he did not leave a substantial body of writing or correspondence to advance such a claim. New to this edition are profiles of friends and colleagues from Birmingham who painted in Cornwall including Edwin Harris and William Wainwright.

Some killers kill for money. Some kill for fame. Still others kill for revenge. The Loner had a different motive. He killed to prove his point. For too many years, he sat by, as things remained the same. The Loner wanted to change the way things were and when the opportunity presented itself, he decided he had to take IT. Detective Darnell Simms is in charge of finding this serial killer and bringing him to justice, dead or alive.

Kurzman proposes that the collective agent most directly responsible for democratization was the emerging class of modern intellectuals, a group that had gained a global identity and a near-messianic sense of mission following the Dreyfus Affair of 1898. Each chapter of this book focuses on a single angle of this story, covering all six cases by examining newspaper accounts, memoirs, and government reports.
Thus, to give one example, we find Walter Langley minuting in 1915 (about
seizing enemy parcels aboard neutral merchant vessels), “We must be careful

Publisher: Cornell University Press
In A Scrap of Paper, Isabel V. Hull compares wartime decision making in Germany, Great Britain, and France, weighing the impact of legal considerations in each. She demonstrates how differences in state structures and legal traditions shaped the way the three belligerents fought the war. Hull focuses on seven cases: Belgian neutrality, the land war in the west, the occupation of enemy territory, the blockade, unrestricted submarine warfare, the introduction of new weaponry, and reprisals. A Scrap of Paper reconstructs the debates over military decision-making and clarifies the role law played—where it constrained action, where it was manipulated, where it was ignored, and how it developed in combat—in each case. A Scrap of Paper is a passionate defense of the role that the law must play to govern interstate relations in both peace and war.
The painting is in the colours, if not the sentiment, of Newlyn painter Walter Langley and presents a young 1930s schoolboy, with cap set at a relaxed if not
quite rakish angle, sitting with his back to a wall, smiling as he reads his rather ...

The nature of childhood, the consideration of whether a certain age denotes innocence or not, and the desire to teach good citizenship to our children are all issues commonly discussed by today's media. This book brings together a variety of perspectives on the study of childhood: how this has been treated historically and how such a concept is developing as we move into the next century. The book is divided into five main sections: * part one sets the scene and provides the reader with an overview of attitudes towards childhood. * part two surveys the contribution of literature from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries * part three examines educational issues such as childrens' play, language acquisition and spiritual development * part four looks at the representation of children in film, television and other mass media * part five offers further help for study and research This book draws on a number of academic disciplines including education, literature, theology, language studies and history. It will be of particular use to those on Childhood studies courses and all those studying for a teacher qualification. Teachers of children aged between 4-12 years old will find its contribution to their continuing professional development extremely helpful.

Referred to in its beginning as a “peculiar town,” Medford was originally a town but a plantation owned by Governor Matthew Craddock. Known as Meadford at the time of its settlement in 1630, the area was a flourishing village located along the Mystic River that boasted numerous farms, fisheries, and shipbuilding. A small town for the first two centuries after it was settled, Medford was conveniently located only a few miles from Boston. Its prime location soon attracted thousands of residents, and by the turn of the twentieth century, Medford had become a cultural mecca with over 18,000 residents. The town's strong sense of community and respect for diversity has continued through the years, transforming a small fishing and farming village into one of the finest residential communities in metropolitan Boston. In Medford, author Anthony Mitchell Sammarco invites his readers to join him on a journey back in time to an earlier Medford, when local transportation meant a ride on a horse-drawn streetcar or a train ride on the Boston & Lowell line. Within these pages, learn little-known facts about the founding of renowned institutions such as Tufts University, view candid snapshots of early Medford residents at work and at play, and discover rare photographs of the area's more unusual influences, from the exotic foods and customs introduced by European settlers to the impact of the town's gypsy moth dilemma.
