Russland und das 20. Jahrhundert
Author: Orlando Figes
Publisher: Hanser Berlin
Eine glänzend geschriebene Geschichte Sowjetrusslands – von den Wurzeln des Bolschewismus bis zum Putsch gegen Gorbatschow 1991. Laut Orlando Figes erstreckt sich die Wirkung der Russischen Revolution von 1917 über die Jahrzehnte der Diktatur bis in die Gegenwart. So waren die Sowjetführer bis zuletzt überzeugt, dass sie die von Lenin begonnene Revolution fortsetzten und auf ihre Ziele hinarbeiteten: eine kommunistische Gesellschaft des materiellen Überflusses für das Proletariat und ein neuer kollektiver Menschentyp. In einem historischen Moment, da in Russland unter Putin die autoritäre Staatstradition wiederauflebt, liefert Figes eine überzeugende Interpretation des russischen 20. Jahrhunderts.

In seinem sechsten Fall muss der fabelhafte Peter Grant - ein verschollenes altes Buch wiederfinden - einen verdächtigen Todesfall auf einer Party der Reichen und Schönen Londons aufklären - versuchen, es sich dabei nicht völlig mit Lady Ty zu verderben - vermeiden, vom Gesichtslosen ins Jenseits befördert zu werden - sich mit einem ganzen Haufen rauflustiger Amerikaner herumschlagen, die definitiv zu viel ›24‹ gesehen haben. Kurz: Peter bekommt die einzigartige Gelegenheit, es sich mit alten Freunden zu verderben und sich dabei jede Menge neue Feinde zu machen. Mal vorausgesetzt, er überlebt die kommende Woche.

Meeting Standards and Applying Research

THIS IS THE SERIES BLURB...LIST ALL BOOKS TOGETHER:Continuum Studies in Reflective Practice and Research is a new series of textbooks aimed at teaching students. As with Andrew Pollard's books, they use the idiom of reflective teaching. In other words, they avoids the two extreme views about learning to teach, namely that it is best done simply through acquiring practical "tricks of the trade" without any theory or that it is best done applying sytematized, objective theory. The distinctive feature of relective teaching is that it encourages practitioners to develop by continually inter-relating theory and research findings to their own practice, situation and style.These comprehensive textbooks provide an accessible guide to all those who are new to teaching in secondary schools. Covering all aspects of job, from planning through to teaching and assessment, the authors provide constructive, accessible and, above all, practical advice to help subject teachers become more effective in their work.
