            The affair was weird when seen from afar, but seen in close-up, it was Kafkaesque: it was not possible in 2014 for a Boeing 777 to have simply disappeared...

            Recently the alarm has been raised - basic freedoms are under attack in our universities. A generation of 'snowflake' students are shutting out ideas that challenge their views. Ideologically motivated academics are promoting propaganda at the expense of rigorous research and bal...anced teaching. Universities are caving in and denying platforms to 'problematic' public speakers. Is this true, or is it panic and exaggeration? Carolyn Evans and Adrienne Stone deftly investigate the arguments, analysing recent controversies and delving into the history of the university. They consider the academy's core values and purpose, why it has historically given higher protection to certain freedoms, and how competing legal, ethical and practical claims can restrict free expression. This book asks the necessary questions and responds with thoughtful, reasoned answers. Are universities responsible for helping students to thrive in a free intellectual climate? Are public figures who work outside of academia owed an audience? Does a special duty of care exist for students and faculty targeted by hostile speech? And are high-profile cases diverting attention from more complex, serious threats to freedom in universities - such as those posed by domestic and foreign governments, industry partners and donors?

            The story of flight is a comprehensive introduction to the world of aviation and starts with a detailed explanation of exactly how an aeroplane is able to fly. It then gives an account of the full history of heavier than air flight, both military and civil, from the early experim...ental gliders to the first powered flights. It explains how the Wright brothers were able to succeed where others had failed and details the huge advances that have been made since, including the jet engine, supersonic flight and vertical take-off and landing. But the story of flight is not just about the design and development of aircraft, it is the story of people, at first the dreamers and visionaries, who somehow just knew that one day man would take to the skies, the amateur scientists and inventors who constructed elaborate machines built of wood and fabric and bravely tested them, or conducted experiments with kites, gliders and primitive wind tunnels to gain data that could later be analysed to increase their knowledge. People like George Cayley, who may have been the first person to understand the underlying principles and forces of flight, Otto Lilienthal The Bird Man who eventually gave his life in the pursuit of manned flight, John Stringfellow, who built the first steam powered model aircraft to fly, and many more. Then, when the goal was finally achieved and the Wright brothers took to the air for the first time, the pioneers who strove to fly higher, faster and for longer, capturing the imagination of the public and thrilling them with aeronautical displays and crossing both national borders and physical boundaries, men like Louis Bleriot who was the first to cross the English Channel and later, Alcock and Brown, crossing not just channels but continents and oceans. Full of easy to understand explanations and illustrations as well as some beautiful pictures by one of the countries' leading aviation photographers The Story of Flight is a must have book for any aviation enthusia
