The Battle for Stalingrad by V. I Chuĭkov( Book )

10 editions published between 1953 and 1970 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The commander of the 62nd Siberian Army tells what happened during the Battle of Stalingrad, analyzing Russian military strategy and giving a bird's-eye view of how Soviet generals planned the war and Russian soldiers fought it. His account questions the myth that the Germans were beaten by the climate and the greater numbers of Russian troops. Confessing the view he held at the time, Chuikov explains the background to the orders he gave, describing in detail how he broke up the traditional military units to create myriads of small, flexible storm troops to conduct house-to-house fighting. Referring to the diaries and letters of soldiers (both Russian and German), he evokes the hell that was Stalingrad, a shattered city where soldiers were fighting in sewers, from rubble, and from holes in the frozen earth

An educational war on poverty : American and British policy-making, 1960-1980 by Harold Silver( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education was a critical focus of the "war on poverty" declared by President Johnson in 1964. U.S. policy built on research, and experiments being conducted in the early 1960s produced major programs such as the preschool Head Start and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, 1965. In this major transatlantic study two senior educationalists examine both these developments and similar processes in Britain--notably the Plowden report of 1967. The Silvers examine the shift of attention in Britain from social class and the secondary school to poverty and the primary and preschool stage, and use extensive archive and interview material to analyze in depth transatlantic interactions, similarities, and differences in systems and policies. An Educational War on Poverty makes a substantial contribution to recent social and educational history, of interest both to scholars and policy makers, not least for its two large-scale national bibliographies

Innovating in higher education : teaching, learning, and institutional cultures by Andrew Hannan( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Innovations in teaching and learning methods in higher education are being introduced at a time of rapid institutional change. Traditional lectures are being replaced by more student-centered and project-based methods, often involving the use of information and communication technology. Innovating in Higher Education is based on in-depth qualitative research in fifteen UK universities, and tells the stories of those who have been involved in such changes. It will be of interest to policy-makers, managers and university teachers who wish to bring about innovation in teaching and learning in higher education."--Jacket
Good schools, effective schools : judgements and their histories by Harold Silver( Book )

11 editions published between 1944 and 1994 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to consider the nature of this effective schools research and movement, the book sets them against a background of nineteenth- and twentieth-century judgements of what, in Britain, has constituted a good school. It traces the power of inspectors, examinations, governments, managers and others to make judgements and to define the criteria for making judgements, and ways in which research also became influential. This book is therefore an important piece of recent history, using mainly Britain and the United States to explain and illustrate the changes, and focusing on concepts of central importance in current schools policy and practice internationally

Students : changing roles, changing lives by Harold Silver( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What it means to be a student has changed as dramatically as higher education itself. It has always meant more than the formal academic role, and this book is concerned with the changes in students' lives, activities and attitudes since the period of student activism in the 1960s and 1970s. The authors have visited universities and colleges, interviewed students and staff, and looked at the records of institutions and students unions. They go beyond past research concerns with learning, attainment and statistics to discuss residence, students unions, clubs and societies, the lives of different constituencies of students, representation, leisure, hardship, part-time employment. They consider the impacts of changes in size, funding, diversity, the idea of community, and the definitions of students as apprentices, customers, consumers, participants. They compare experience in the UK with that in the USA. This is the first book to attempt such a wide-ranging picture of students' lives into the 1990s

Higher education and opinion making in twentieth-century England by Harold Silver( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book explores the changing patterns of higher education in England in the 20th century, the types of institutions and the emergence of a 'system'. At the same time it traces the relationship between the writer-advocates of higher education and the changing world of higher education and its contexts. There is therefore an interrelated story of higher education, the writers, their messages, their backgrounds and ideologies, the audiences they intend to address, and the impacts of the state and other external forces
