Estonia A Modern History

Estonia A Modern History

Author: Neil Taylor Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/07/2018

With only 1.3 million inhabitants, Estonia is one of Europe's least populous nations -- yet it boasts one of the continent's fastest growing economies. In the first serious English-language history of this small Baltic state, Neil Taylor charts Estonia's long, arduous journey to its present-day prosperity, through a thousand years of occupation by Danes, Swedes, Germans and Russians. In the wake of the First World War, out of the heat of a national awakening and the collapse of the Russian and German empires, Estonia was recognised as an independent nation in 1920. This was not to last -- the country was tossed between the Soviets and Nazis during the Second World War, then fully integrated into the USSR, bringing on more than half a century of renewed occupation and misery. But hopes of true independence never dimmed and, in 1991, the Republic of Estonia was restored. This unflinching history includes charming moments of colour and levity, from ambassadorial reports on nude bathing and a presidential press conference deliberately held beside a dirty toilet, to the story of a blind pianist, the first foreigner allowed to visit the city of Tartu in the Soviet era.

Estonia

Estonia

Author: Neil Taylor Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/03/2014

Bradt's Estonia remains the only English-language guidebook to this Baltics destination and this seventh edition reveals more of the country than any previous guide. Readers now discover why Miss Estonia likes antique cars, where Eiffel built before Paris, and why Edward VII could not land in Tallinn to meet Tsar Nicholas II and had instead to spend three days in the harbour. Offering extensive coverage of Estonia's complex cultural history and its artists, writers and musicians, alongside comprehensive practical information, Baltics expert Neil Taylor proves that there's much more to Estonia than the cobbled streets and cafes of Tallinn. He won the 2012 Estonia Presidential Award for this guidebook.

Education for Sustainability in the Primary Curriculum: A guide for teachers

Education for Sustainability in the Primary Curriculum: A guide for teachers

Author: Neil Taylor, Michael Littledyke, Chris Eames Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/11/2009

Education for Sustainability is a top priority in the present international climate, where the media is dominated by environmental, social, political and economic concerns about current problems that will affect our future. As young children will become the next generation of adults, it is vital that they are educated about sustainability issues, so they can be critically aware of the problems our society faces and take positive action to help preserve their future in a rapidly changing world. While teachers are generally concerned about sustainability issues, perceived constraints of current curriculum priorities commonly inhibit Education for Sustainability from being developed in many classrooms. Education for Sustainability in the Primary Curriculum addresses this dilemma by showing how Education for Sustainability can be developed within and across all areas of the primary curriculum in Australian and New Zealand contexts. The book provides suitable approaches and examples of activities to support teachers so that they can address the State and National requirements for teaching all the primary curriculum learning areas, while also addressing Education for Sustainability to promote knowledge of, positive attitudes towards and suitable action for, sustainability in relevant, meaningful, enjoyable and creative ways. The approaches to education for sustainability in this book also support relevant state and national policies, such as the recently introduced Living Sustainably: the Australian Government's National Action Plan for Education for Sustainability (http://www.environment.gov.au/education/nap/), which provides national direction for achieving a sustainable society, and the New Zealand Government's Education for Sustainability (http://efs.tki.org.nz/), which advises schools directly. This book directly supports sustainability, and is a valuable resource for all primary teachers who wish to make a real difference to educating children for the future.
