The galactic order has been shattered, and amidst the chaos heroes will rise...and fall—as Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Moon brings her stellar Familias Regnant saga to a spectacular conclusion. Across Regnant space, the fight to put down the mutinous factions of the Fleet continues. Though the initial assaults have been contained, the mutineers are still at large. And the dangerous seditious elements are not limited to the military alone. Within the Familias, the aged leaders of the great septs continue to hoard the mysterious rejuvenation drugs that may allow them to rule forever. And that is something that the ambitious younger generations of the ruling families can no longer abide... Heroic Fleet loyalist Esmay Suiza has been coldly ousted from the service after her elopement to Barin Serrano is discovered and her religious status comes under suspicion. But she’s not about to back down from her sworn duty, and races to confront the members of the Grand Council—one of whom owes her a great service... But unbeknownst to anyone, a powerful leader in the ranks of the Fleet has already turned against them, and their common enemy is determined to destroy the Familias Regnant in a final conflagration... "SF readers will delight in the twisting, thorny adventure in the compelling continuation to this popular series."-- Publishers Weekly "Fans of David Weber's “Honor Harrington” series will appreciate Moon's space opera of high politics and military adventure."—Library Journal "A fun fast-paced mix of space and soap opera.”—Locus "A triumphant coda."—Booklist

1978: In Rhodesia, the Internal Settlement led to the creation of a coalition government. Smith had, however, neither capitulated nor abandoned his belief in white superiority, and thousands of people fled across the country's borders. In England, a group of missionaries, supported by the Catholic Institute for International Relations, formed a steering group that was to become the Zimbabwe Project. Originally an educational fund to support exiled young Zimbabweans, it shifted focus toward humanitarian assistance to refugees in the region. 1981: The Zimbabwe Project Trust, a child of the war, came home, and its director, Judith Todd, started mapping the route that it would follow for the next thirty years. ZimPro - as it came to be known - began its work with ex-combatants, assisting with their education, skills training and co-operative development, and producing a news bulletin. In terms of funding, courage, and creative programming, it became a giant in the country's development landscape, but it has had to negotiate many political, financial and philosophical minefields on the way. Against The Odds offers a rare insight into workings of an NGO on the frontline. With a cast of larger-than-life characters, it also offers a drama of Zimbabwe's first thirty years and provides insights and lessons which will benefit everyone concerned with development, and provide historians with another important lens through which to view the past.

Ten years ago, when American management consultant Brett Wigdortz told his employers at McKinsey that he was leaving to "found an organisation designed to address educational disadvantage in Britain", they laughed. He was 28 years, with no experience of either public policy or teaching; he'd never led anything before, never managed anyone. And he thought he could put right the class-ridden injustices of the British education system. This is the story of how a tiny independent charity has succeeded against all odds. Having met nothing but resistance in its early years, Teach First is today Britain's largest employer of graduates. It receives over 7000 applications for 1000 teaching positions annually in the most challenging schools in the country. In this searingly honest account Brett shows how, through a combination of his McKinsey training and personal passion, he has turned a simple idea into a cultural revolution. He offers tips and advice based on everything he has learned along the way - How to write a business plan, How to hire the right team through to How to become a CEO with zero qualifications. This is a book about turning no into yes - inspiration for anyone else out there with a vision for change to go out and make it happen.

The common thread among the 18 stories in Against the Odds is the way people can resourcefully overcome obstacles to realize their ambitions and dreams. The “odds” are varied in these skillfully written tales. An obstacle to one’s success or happiness may lie in one’s own character or the prejudice of someone else. A potential employer may cast a suspicious eye on an individual’s background. A guardian seems reluctant to sponsor any further education for his charge. Other characters here are looking as much for increased self-respect as financial reward or better training. Set in locales as varied as Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Prince Edward Island, the stories of Against the Odds are peopled with orphans, teachers, actors, struggling single-parent families, intransigent relatives. It’s a world, though distant from our own, where Montgomery’s characters have problems similar to ours, and their methods of solving them are not very different from what we would try.

Unions End is a book about the beginning and the end of an advanced civilization that seeded Earth millions of years ago in an effort for their own race to survive. The book starts with the development of a generation ship that takes the remaining survivors to Earth were they find that they cannot survive long on Earth without some form of genetic reengineering. The attempts eventually lead to the human race and now the race is on for the survival of the human race. Mankind's safety and continued existence is left in the hands of one man. He finds that he will not be able to save everyone and does what he can to save as many people as possible. Through a series of events Earl Donahee finds that he is the only one able to take control of a Generation ship, built millions of years earlier, that holds a power so strong that it could destroy the entire solar system in the blink of an eye. The water that is needed to prevent the disaster is so close and abundant on Earth but getting it to where he needs it will take too much time using conventional ships that it seems there is little hope of success until Sam steps in with a plan that works. Only after the local danger is over, Earl finds out about an outside danger that had never been thought possible or even considered a danger. The massive singularity is returning to destroy the human race again and there is only one option for him to take, one that will lead him into controversy and lead the human race on an adventure some can only dream about.

In 1996 Routledge published Success Against the Odds, which looked at how a sample of schools in a variety of disadvantaged areas managed to be effective, despite the odds being stacked against them. Since that time much has been written on school improvement and raising standards. Success Against the Odds - Five Years On revisits the eleven schools that were studied in the first book to see if they are still managing to do well in the current climate. The book looks at what has been learnt and developed in the field of school improvement and effectiveness during the period between 1995 and 2000 and implications for policy and practice are discussed.

The essays collected in this volume include a selection of those presented at a conference in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain, in 2002. They highlight the existence of a European network of women’s writing which became a valuable source of consciousness-raising, not only for European women writers, but also for their readers. The main theme running through the essays is love: women loving against the odds and transcending all kinds of obstacles. Does love speak a common language or is it inevitably linked to social mores and individual experience? Does desire work in the same way? Do love and desire have the power to subvert dichotomous thinking and motivate real change? The texts studied in this volume are both fictional and factual, from plays and novels to diaries, letters and drama performances. The countries the essays travel through, and the languages they encounter, all contribute to forming a magic web of connections, solidarities and ideas that truly cross boundaries.
