Victor Sjöström (1879-1960), or Victor Seastrom as he was known during his Hollywood career, was undoubtedly one of the most renowned silent film directors. Focusing on his masterpieces such as 'The Scarlet Letter' and 'The Wind', but also including films he had made in Sweden before moving to Hollywood, as well as film fragments and films considered lost, Florin analyses Sjöström's austere and naturalistic style and the transformations it underwent during his Hollywood years.

Since the end of World War II, the single event with greatest impact on the development of armor was the war that did not happen-the expected conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union across the central front in Europe. This Cold War legacy meant the design of armor vehicles was driven by a competition that led to production of faster, more heavily armored, and more powerfully and accurately armed tanks. Since the end of the Cold War, the Army has responded to a number of crisis situations throughout the world. These responses are revealing that the Army's organizations and equipment platforms were not optimized for current missions. In October 1999, GEN Eric Shinseki, Army Chief of Staff, announced an Army transformation from a legacy force; to an interim force that serves as the Army's bridge to the future; and to an objective force that uses the best of science and technology to develop the Future Combat System. Will transformation of the Army's armored forces into the objective force be evolutionary or revolutionary? Will the Interim Armored Vehicle (IAV) be available in sufficient quantities and types to impact the development doctrine, training and initial deployment of the Interim Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) in the schedule set by GEN Shinseki? Will technology be mature enough to support Engineering, Manufacturing and Development decisions for the FCS by FY 2006?

Transitions and Transformations encapsulates emerging issues on literature, culture, and politics in Papua New Guinea. The essays capture my reflections on the literature and culture of Papua New Guinea. Literature is a window into a society. Through novels, poetry, plays, and short stories writers present an imagined community to readers. The discussions here are by no means the only way of reading Papua New Guinea literature. I do make one statement at the outset, though: this book is a reflection of the transitions and transformations I made in my life as a writer-scholar in Papua New Guinea. In the process I met many friends, students, readers, and mentors, whose creative and intellectual influences rubbed off on me as well. It is a process that helped me understand literature and the kinds of scholarship on cultural-knowledge productions that I deal with in Papua New Guinea. Transitions and Transformations maps the study of Papua New Guinean writers and their writings. It is also a book demonstrating the development of personal scholarship in the field of literary and cultural studies in Papua New Guinea.

This detailed account tells the background story of a privatised monopoly whose sharp practices embroiled a national government in scandal and shocked a nation that prides itself on the strength of its institutions. AWB Limited, the former Australian Wheat Board that in the 1990s was sold into the private sector, paid more than $US200m in kickbacks to the pariah regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, exploiting the provisions of the United Nations’ Oil for Food program by inflating the price of the wheat it sent there to disguise the pay-offs that secured the contracts. The ensuing uproar threatened the careers of key cabinet ministers in the Howard government and contributed to the rise and subsequent election victory of the Australian Labor Party’s Kevin Rudd.

This book explores one of the enduring issues in educational research and one of the challenges for formal education. That is, understanding the relationship between learning in one context, setting or time and a subsequent related learning experience or activity. The chapters in the book examine the issue drawing on existing theory as starting points but using each author’s own research to push existing boundaries of what we know in terms of the ideas captured in the title of the book: transfer, transitions and transformations of learning. The chapters explore the issue through a range of approaches and settings including: possibilities for a concept-context approach to transfer, transfer between knowledge domains, transfer as an iterative process between contexts, transfer as boundary crossing between vocations, transfer as integration of theory and practice, transferring standards in assessment, representation in the transition from novice to expert, transformation of self through sustainability education, transforming identities of first year design and technology teachers and the role of implicit knowledge in understanding the relationship between declarative and procedural knowledge in the transition to expertise. This book should be of interest to teachers in schools and the adult education sector, research students, teacher educators, researchers and policy-makers who are involved in learning in, through or with technology.

This book addresses the policy questions surrounding the challenge of transforming eastern European economies from their planned, administrative past to vibrant market-based entities. Jozef van Brabant considers in turn, the wider set of challenges facing these economies - stabilization, privatization, liberalization, institution building, and developing and maintaining the sociopolitical consensus - before examining the evolving role of the state. Using concrete examples from the eastern European countries throughout, including the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, this work systematically examines, in a society-wide context, the initial conditions of transformation, the policy tasks ahead and the manner in which policies have been pursued.

The breakneck speed of change in today’s societies creates enormous challenges for educational institutions at all levels. This volume explores ways how to manage change in educational processes and contexts, focusing, in particular, on the concepts of transition and transformation. How do we educate a skilled workforce, sensitive professionals and responsive citizens who are able not only to cope with change but also to adopt required roles as agents of change? How do we prepare students and employees to cope adequately with changes and transitions in their careers and personal lives? The first of this book’s three sections deals with the conceptual and theoretical aspects of transition, transformational processes and human development. It defines these concepts and examines the ways in which educational theory and praxis understand concepts of change and development. The second section presents empirical studies that offer differing perspectives on educational transitions, covering the lifespan from early years education to lifelong learning. The third part of the volume focuses on issues of learning and pedagogy and argues that educational practices should change with the changing world. With numerous concrete examples included in the analysis, and with studies taking a range of forms from personal histories to large-scale surveys, this new book is a major addition to the literature in a field that has key implications for our future.

The IMF has been a major participant in the challenge of transforming many African, Asian, and European countries from centrally planned to market economies. The authors of this book, mainly staff members of the IMF, have distilled their firsthand experience with fiscal reform in transition economies into 15 case studies of these countries. In doing so they analyze issues of privatization, fiscal federalism, social safety nets, and the net worth of the Soviet Union. The editor of the volume is Vito Tanzi, Director of the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department.
