Russia : a historical introduction from Kievan Rus' to the present by John Thompson( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lucid account of Russian and Soviet history presents major trends and events from ancient Kievan Rus' to Vladimir Putin's renewed presidency in the twenty-first century. Russia does not shy away from controversial topics, including the impact of the Mongol conquest, the paradoxes of Peter the Great, the "inevitability" of the 1917 Revolution, the Stalinist terror, and the Gorbachev reform effort. Tackling those topics and others, the new edition is updated to discuss the Russia-Georgia war of 2008, the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine of 2013-2014, the war in eastern Ukraine, and the Russian annexation of Crimea. Distinguished by its brevity and amply supplemented with useful images and suggested readings, this essential text provides balanced coverage of all periods of Russian history and incorporates economic, social, and cultural developments as well as politics and foreign policy."--Provided by publisher

The path to the future or the road to nowhere? : a political and social examination of the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline Railway (BAM), 1974-1984 by Christopher J Ward( )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning in 1974, the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline Railway (BAM) dominated public life in the Soviet Union. Declared completed in 1984, BAM was arguably the greatest and most costly construction feat in postwar Soviet history. Crossing some 2,500 miles from Eastern Siberia to the Pacific Ocean, BAM was to open a vast sector of the USSR to economic development. As conceived by Soviet officialdom, the mainline would serve as the 'path toward communism' that would unite all Soviet citizens, regardless of their profession, ethnicity, or gender. Government and party proponents of the project, along with prominent journalists, boasted that the mainline would allow the USSR to exploit the riches of Siberia and forge a new industrial base by the twenty-first century. This dissertation explores the campaign to promote the so-called 'Project of the Century' through the creation of the BAM 'myth, ' an official legitimizing perspective on the railway whose core message evidenced little change over time. I hold that while this myth was tailored to appeal to a number of potentially disaffected groups in Soviet society in the hope that their combined support for the project would bolster collective faith in the Soviet brand of state socialism, the regime's transmission of the BAM message ultimately fell on deaf ears because these groups had already some of their faith in the Soviet experiment. While the mythical world of the BAM as the 'Path to the Future' grew. The construction of the mainline itself led to no concrete accomplishments in either the industrial or social development of the USSR. By the mid-1980s, the nation's leaders were unable to contend with the wide array of unforeseen circumstances that resulted from such a massive undertaking, including a nascent conservation movement, unruly BAMers traveling abroad, dissatisfied foreign workers toiling on the railroad, a restive native population, marginalized ethnic minorities, and disenfranchised women. Each of these intractable tensions produced fault lines in the geology of BAM society that reflected the problems at play in the country at large. These pressures rent apart the world's first self-proclaimed socialist state less than a decade after BAM's announced completion"--Leaf iii-iv
Factors Influencing Effectiveness of the Acquisition Career Field Initial Education Course by Christopher J Ward( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzed the affect of the acquisition career field's initial education course on the individual level variables of commitment, motivation, self-efficacy, and knowledge, and developed a measure for future use of organizational factors that may impact that effectiveness. Effectiveness was assessed using a recurrent institutional cycle design, using two classes of students in the Air Force Fundamentals of Acquisition Management course. A total of 89 students responded to the surveys. Even with a small amount of data, the results showed that fulfilling the course expectations of the students increased the affective commitment to their career field. More data is required before recommendations for changes in education and training design can be made
Russia and the Soviet Union : an historical introduction by John M Thompson( )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a brief, lucid account of Russian and Soviet history from ancient Kievan Rus' through the first six years of the new, democratic Russia's existence. Thompson's balanced treatment pays equal attention to the early and modern periods of Russian history. This new, thoroughly revised edition reassesses the legacy of the Brezhnev period, looks at the crucial transitional role of Mikhail Gorbachev, analyzes the dramatic breakup of the Soviet Union, and provides an overview of the emergence of noncommunist Russia. An all-new chapter focuses on events since 1991, including the war in Chechenya and Russia's relations with the other post-Soviet successor states. - Back cover
Musical exploration using I.C.T. in the middle and secondary school classroom by Christopher J Ward( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores musical creativity through ICT. It aims to show that secondary school pupils can compose ireely using ICT in the classroom, easing and "democratising" the creative process, enabling a high standard for all regardless of formal musical training. The fieldwork project was conducted across one secondary school (Years 9-13) and one middle school (Years 5-8) in the Windsor area from November 2002 - December 2003. There were opportunities in the music classrooms of both schools to develop creative ideas based around tonalities of the last 40 years, in spite of the fact that creativity in a non-tonal medium was well established in the professional field. I intended to show that pupils were more inventive and motivated in the music classroom when given opportunities to: a) Use ICT as an integral part of the creative process. b) Explore unusual sounds in a non-fixed-tonal environment. c) promote enthusiasm and motivation through learning by relevant and fascinating lesson content, enthusiastic delivery and an informal class atmosphere
