Three sets of ocean liners, each destined to be of three vessels, dominated the Atlantic in the Edwardian era. The race to build the biggest and the best began with Mauretania and Lusitania in 1906, followed by the White Star Line's Olympic and Titanic in 1911-12. Each of these pairs was to see a larger sister, developed as a result of changes needed or desired as a result of operating the two earlier vessels, with Cunard's being Aquitania and White Star's, the ill-fated Britannic. Germany's answer to these British behemoths was the Albert-Ballin designed trio of Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck. Through misfortune or war, two of these vessels would sink but the others led useful lives, with Aquitania surviving two world wars before being scrapped. Designed to be the absolute engineering achievements of their time, these nine vessels dominated the Atlantic. J. Kent Layton tells the story of the Edwardian Superliners in this fabulously illustrated volume, showcasing many images previously unpublished and never before seen. Rarely can one describe a book as definitive, but this volume truly deserves the accolade.

This book which has now established itself as a classic study of working class boys describes how Paul Willis followed a group of 'lads' as they passed through the last two years of school and into work. The book explains that for 'the lads' it is their own culture which blocks teaching and prevents the realisation of liberal education aims. This culture exposes some of the contradictions within these formal aims and actually supplies the operational criteria by which a future in wage labour is judged. Paul Willis explores how their own culture can guide working class lads on to the shop floor. This is an uncompromising book which has provoked considerable discussion and controversy in educational circles throughout the world - it has been translated into Finnish, German, French, Swedish, Japanese and Spanish.

'This book is well referenced, excellently produced, and deserves wide consultation' - International Journal of Market Research 'Health researchers in the US and globally would do well to study this book and consider its implications for monitoring and analyzing socioeconomic inequalities in health within and across diverse countries' - Journal of Public Health Policy As a result of a review conducted by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS), both previous government social classifications, Social Class based on Occupation and Socio-economic Groups, were replaced in 2001 by a new classification, the National Statistics Socio-Economic Classification (NS-SEC). This book arises from original research, including primary data collection, undertaken by ESRC for ONS. There is a foreword from Gordon Marshall the Chief Executive of the ESRC. This book introduces researchers to all aspects of the new classification. In particular, it: - Fully describes the NS-SEC and elucidates its conceptual basis - Guides readers in how the NS-SEC has been validated as a measure - Evaluates how well NS-SEC works in describing and explaining the relationships between social class and key health and employment variables - Demonstrates the applications of NS-SEC in research The book will be required reading for all users of government social classifications. Its contents will also be of interest to sociologists concerned with the study of social inequality and courses in health inequality. Because of its inherent methodological interest the book will also be relevant to third year undergraduate and graduate courses that discuss how social scientists construct and validate basic measures.

A candid exploration of the most publicly discussed of private acts--sex--and those who have devoted their lives to studying it. Looking at key sexologists throughout history including Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, and Alfred Kinsey, this book investigates how sex research has shaped our current attitudes toward sexual behavior and identity. From anthropological surveys and questionnaires to ancient sex toys and machines, The Institute of Sexology presents fascinating findings alongside a wide range of rare documents, artworks, photographs, and erotica from the past. Spanning several centuries, the book delves deeply into sexual practices and conventions from all over the world at different time periods. From raunchy ancient carvings to 1920s erotic postcards, The Institute of Sexology proves that kink has been around for longer than you think. The book's compilation of sexually progressive memorabilia opens a visually stimulating discussion on the topics of sexual freedom and fetishism. Through their documentation of courtship rituals from faraway lands and their historical government-sponsored sexual questionnaires, sexologists encourage us to take a critical look at our approach to sexual practices. Sexologists have hugely influenced our attitude toward this most basic of subjects, yet The Institute of Sexology reminds us that while contemporary reservations on sexuality are being loosened, there were times in the past when sex and sexual identity were explored much more openly. Preconceived ideas are thrown out the window in this richly illustrated book that suggests our understanding of sex is in constant evolution. The Institute of Sexology highlights the profound effect that the gathering and analysis of information can have in changing attitudes and lifting taboos.
