'The most popular English poet since Larkin.' Sunday Times After more than a decade and following his celebrated adventures in drama, translation, travel writing and prose poetry, Simon Armitage's eleventh collection of poems heralds a return to his trademark contemporary lyricism. The pieces in this multi-textured and moving volume are set against a backdrop of economic recession and social division, where mass media, the mass market and globalisation have made alienation a commonplace experience and where the solitary imagination drifts and conjures. The Unaccompanied documents a world on the brink, a world of unreliable seasons and unstable coordinates, where Odysseus stalks the aisles of cut-price supermarkets in search of direction, where the star of Bethlehem rises over industrial Yorkshire, and where alarm bells for ailing communities go unheeded or unheard. Looking for certainty the mind gravitates to recollections of upbringing and family, only to encounter more unrecoverable worlds, shaped as ever through Armitage's gifts for clarity and detail as well as his characteristic dead-pan wit. Insightful, relevant and empathetic, these poems confirm The Unaccompanied as a bold new statement of intent by one of our most respected and recognised living poets. 'A writer who has had a game-changing influence on his contemporaries.' Guardian 'Armitage is that rare beast: a poet whose work is ambitious, accomplished and complex as well as popular.' Sunday Telegraph 'The best poet of his generation.' Craig Raine, Observer

J. Michael Leonard has transcribed two excellent editions of the Bach Partitas, one for flute and one for clarinet. the partitas were taken from those volumes and transcribed for guitar. the goal was to make these absolutely beautiful pieces of music accessible for the guitarist who may not be a virtuoso in ability. Where necessary the pieces were transcribed into guitar friendly keys and the articulation markings were edited so that the slurs and ornamentations would lie well on the guitar fingerboard.The pieces may be performed by either a fingerstyle or classic guitarist or with the use of a flatpick. These pieces should be ideal in concert, recital or festival.

Although Johann Sebastian Bach did not write any music for the guitar, transcriptions of his unaccompanied string music and music for lute have long been a part of the guitar repertoire. Despite the respect that this music commands among musicians and audiences debate still exists as to what constitutes an appropriate means of transcribing, interpreting and performing this music on the guitar. It is this debate that prompted this long-awaited edition of Bach's unaccompanied cello suites by scholar and concert guitarists Stanley Yates. This definitive work includes performance scores, comparison scores an an invaluable 40-page guide entitled Arranging, Interpreting, and Performing the Music of J.S. Bach. Furthermore, the author offers comments on his arranging process and suggestions on using this edition including: ornamentation, slurs, fingerings, notation, and implementation of the comparison scores. Written in standard notation in guitar-friendly keys.

This recommendation stresses the importance of placing the best interests of the child at the heart of all government policy and practice in this area. A life project is an individual tool based on a joint undertaking between the child and the relevant authorities for a limited duration. It defines the child's future prospects, promotes his or her best interests without discrimination and provides a long-term response to his or her needs. Each project aims to develop the capacities of the child, allowing him or her to acquire and strengthen the skills necessary to become independent, responsible and active in society. Life projects should seek to promote the social integration of the child and his or her personal and cultural development, as well as to open access to housing, health, studies, vocational training and employment. The recommendation is also aimed at improving the capacities of member states to manage migration of unaccompanied migrant children. It underlines the importance of co-operation between all the countries involved and co-ordination by the relevant authorities.--Publisher's description.

This exquisite look into the choral music of a little know composer. This volume can become a bench mark into the works of Villette. Dr. Burton has written a completely scholarly text with great use of sources and musical examples to illustrate his thesis. The text serves as an invaluable resource to choral conductors who are thinking about programming one of Villette's works or as an insight into the music through a detailed analysis. We found Chapter 5 especially valuable in Dr. Burton's advice on rehearsal and performance practice of these vocal works. His discussion on Latin pronunciation and tempo considerations were succinct and to the point. It was good to have a list of recordings of these composition to compare, as having access to recordings can be a great help to conductors thinking about programming these works. He also provided three useful appendices which will assist the conductor even further.

The 1980 Cuban influx represented a unique challenge to federal refugee policy mechanisms and to prevalent concepts of policy analysis and evaluation. The persistence of unworkable policies across two Presidential administrations suggests that organizational, structural, and decisional rather than personality or motivational factors were principally determinative of policy failure. This work suggests elements of a causal theory based on these factors, and a mode of normative evaluation based on mixed analytical strategies that attend to both decisional process and institutional structure.

The most comprehensive, profound, and accurate book ever written in the history of modern Sudan, Integration and Fragmentation of the Sudan: An African Renaissance, is an encyclopedia of ancient and modern history as well as the politics of Sudan. It is a library of data that discusses Sudan from its economic, political, and social standpoint since the Arab discovery and use of the term Bilad es Sudan up through the modern republic of the Sudan after which South and North Sudan collided in 1947. Although written to correct fabrications, this book is a foundation on which future Sudans shall live on. It is full of useful information that discusses and provides feasible solutions to the fundamental problem of the Sudan that ruptured the country from the Berlin Conference to the post-independence era. For centuries, Sudanese and the international community have been fed with idealistic information as if Sudan started with the coming of the Arabs in the fourteenth century. This persisted due to the lack of resources and formal education among African natives. Khartoums unreasonable diversion of genuine history is one among the many causes of mistrust and division in Sudan. The indigenous Africans found themselves peripheral to Khartoum where economic and political power is concentrated. Integration and fragmentation of Sudan: An African Renaissance is a great source of knowledge for the public and students of Sudanese politics. With the referendum and popular consultation approaching, this book is a head-start for the marginalized Black Africans to make an informed decision between oppression and liberty. Examples and testimonies provided in the text are reasons for the affected regions to permanently determine their future. For freedom diehards this book lays the foundation on which to celebrate the birth of Africas newest sovereign nation along the Nile River.
