The Change We Choose: Speeches 2007-2009 brings together the key speeches made by Gordon Brown during the first two and a half years of his premiership. It reflects how the values and beliefs that have defined his political career have shaped his response to what have been arguably some of the greatest challenges ever to have faced a new prime minister. The speeches in this book trace what will be seen by historians as an extraordinary era in British and international history. We can learn a lot about his premiership by looking at the Prime Minister's penetrating and insightful speeches in this period, as he sets out his thinking on domestic and foreign policy and responds to the events that have shaped his time in office. We also learn much about Gordon Brown, the man, from the insights of those who have kindly agreed to contribute introductions - and from the person who knows him best of all: his wife, Sarah, who introduced his party conference speeches.

Lilys Mutter ist vor zehn Jahren umgekommen. Ihr Vater herrscht wie ein grausamer Rachegott über die inzwischen 14-jährige. Eines Tages flieht Lily aus der bedrückenden Atmosphäre ihres Elternhauses, wandert über die staubigen Straßen der Südstaaten, um ein neues Zuhause zu finden. Sie begegnet wunderbaren Menschen, rettet mit Mut und Klugheit ein Leben und findet bei drei Frauen Unterschlupf, die, wie im Märchen, in großer Eintracht zusammenwohnen. Die drei Schwestern geben dem Mädchen alles, was es braucht: Liebe, Halt, und Geborgenheit. Sie nehmen Lily in ihre Familie auf und weihen sie in die Geheimnisse weiblichen Wissens ein. Lily lernt alles über die Bienenzucht. Sie erfährt, wer ihre Mutter, die sie so schmerzlich vermisst, wirklich war, und sie verliebt sich. Doch eines Tages steht ihr Vater am Gartentor ...

Die volle Ladung Leben - ein Klassiker der Underground-Literatur Mietskasernen, Arbeitslosigkeit, miese Pubs, viel Alkohol und jede Menge Drogen: das ist der Alltag in Leith, einem heruntergekommenen Vorort von Edinburgh. Das ist auch der Alltag von Renton, Spud, Begbie, Sick Boy und Dianne, einer Clique von jugendlichen Außenseitern, in deren Leben sich fast alles um Drogen dreht. Wer kein Junkie ist, wird bald einer werden oder war einer oder wird bald wieder einer sein. Neben Stuff, Rausch, Entzug, Sex, Frust und Gewalt gibt es aber auch noch die Musik. Und wenn diese Anti-Helden schon alle den Blues haben, so doch zumindest mit 160 beats per minute.

A little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing. Through parental guidance amounting to a dictatorial father with an unnerving fondness for the Nazis, and a beleaguered, out of touch mother who believes Emily Pankhurst and the Suffragettes are a 60's Motown combo...Joe's choices in life are nothing if not his own. So facing a world fraught with blinding confusion and fearful, unavoidable evolution, where can Joe go but forward? Sex, travel, education, siblings, crime, sex, illness, careers, and sex. It's all his to figure out via an ill balanced blend of ignorance and innocence. Joe's journey is a touching, exploratory novel of growing pains and personalised global positioning told with a firm grip on the handles of humour and relation. A fictionalised biography, "Joe Public" is S. J. Smith's first novel

The Edwardian period experienced a particularly vibrant periodical culture, with phenomenal growth in the numbers of titles published that were either aimed specifically at women, or else saw women as a key section of their readership or contributor group. It was an era of political ferment in which a number of 'progressive' traditions were formulated, shaped or abandoned, including socialism, feminism, modernism, empire politics, trade unionism and welfarism. Organized around some of the central themes of political thought and utopian thinking, this impressive collection gathers together classic articles from key periodicals. The set presents a comprehensive sourcebook of readings on Edwardian/Progressive era feminist thought, exploring the intervention of the radical public intellectuals working in these traditions in North America and the UK from 1900-1918.
