              The Plague of War: Athens, Sparta, and the Struggle for Ancient Greece

              The Plague of War: Athens, Sparta, and the Struggle for Ancient Greece (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In 431 BC, the long simmering rivalry between the city-states of Athens and Sparta erupted into open warfare, and for more than a generation the two were locked in a life-and-death struggle. The war embroiled the entire Greek world, provoking years of butchery previously unparall...eled in ancient Greece. Whole cities were exterminated, their men killed, their women and children enslaved. While the war is commonly believed to have ended with the capture of the Athenian navy in 405 and the subsequent starvation of Athens, fighting in Greece would continue for several decades. Sparta's authority was challenged in the so-called Corinthian War (395-387) when Persian gold helped unite Athens with Sparta's former allies. The war did not truly end until, in 371, Thebes' crack infantry resoundingly defeated Sparta at Leuctra, forever shattering the myth of Spartan military supremacy. Jennifer Roberts' rich narrative of this famous conflict is the first general history to tell the whole story, from the war's origins down to Sparta's defeat at Leuctra. In her masterful account, this long and bloody war affected every area of life in Athens, exacerbated divisions between rich and poor in Sparta, and sparked civil strife throughout the Greek world. Yet despite the biting sorrows the fighting occasioned, it remains a gripping saga of plots and counter-plots, murders and lies, thrilling sea chases and desperate overland marches, missed opportunities and last-minute reprieves, and, as the war's first historian Thucydides had hoped, lessons for a less bellicose future. In addition, Roberts considers the impact of the war on Greece's cultural life, including the great masterworks of tragedy and comedy performed at this time and, most infamously, the trial and execution of Socrates. A fast-paced narrative of one of antiquity's most famous clashes, The Plague of War is a must-read for history enthusiasts of all ages.

              Taking students and instructors step by step through the major issues surrounding the use of English in the aviation industry, this book provides a clear introduction to turning research into practice in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and a valuable case study o...f applied linguistics in action. With both cutting-edge research and evidence-based practice, the authors, all experts in this field, explore the critical role of English in aviation across a variety of contexts. These include the national and global policies impacting training and language assessment for pilots, air-traffic controllers, ground staff and students. Focusing on a very important but not well addressed area of ESP research and pedagogy, this book uses a range of corpus-based findings, simulator transcripts, and related research to provide an effective and efficient analysis of the language needs of the aviation industry and an extended look at linguistic principles in action. With case studies, transcriptions, radiotelephony and a clear breakdown of the common vocabulary and phrasal patterns of aviation discourse, the book offers students and teachers an insight into the requirements and challenges of successful intercultural communication in this industry, as well as clarifying how to teach, develop and assess aviation English language courses.

              This book brings together a collection of articles that were presented at the Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia (ODLAA) conference in February 2017. The authors share the common agenda of creating meaningful research in the field of distance education. Distinct ...themes in educational research including open, distance, and flexible education emerged from the conference and this collection addresses each of these themes. The themes explored include: teaching and learning playing an integral role in Open and Distance Learning (ODL) research; ways in which technology is used in the teaching of science subjects; how technology is applied in everyday lives, specifically in the areas of transport, accommodation, and in ordering food; the important and often neglected area of research related to staff development and competencies; research regarding Open Educational Practices (OEP); and the importance of distance education in developing countries, where online interaction is often a challenge - largely because of the lack of stable internet connectivity. This book was originally published as a special issue of Distance Education.
