Each One Must Shine: The Educational Legacy of V. A. Sukhomlinsky, Alan Cockerill and Vasily Aleksandrovich Sukhomlinsky
1 Each One Must Shine: The Educational Legacy of V. A. Sukhomlinsky
Alan Cockerill and Vasily Aleksandrovich Sukhomlinsky USA Peter Lang Publishing 1999 0820439886 / 9780820439884 Hardcover New Book 22.6 x 15.5 x 1.8 cm 
Vasily Sukhomlinsky was an extremely influential Ukrainian educator, whose work is still widely read in Ukraine, Russia and China. His idealistic vision of human development, and his deep love for children, led him to develop a holistic system of education that emphasised the moral and aesthetic dimensions of a child's growth, as well as the physical, intellectual and vocational. His school in the village of Pavlysh was visited by thousands of schoolteachers, and his books were read by millions. This is the first major study to present Sukhomlinsky's educational legacy to an English-speaking audience. It is addressed to parents and teachers, as well as to specialists interested in the history of education.

In Defence of Classical Music, Andrew Ford
15 In Defence of Classical Music
Andrew Ford Australia ABC Books 2005 0733315941 / 9780733315947 Hardcover New Book 21.7 x 14.0 x 1.8 cm 
Why does anyone still bother with classical music?How can the string quartets of Brahms or the symphonies of Beethoven possibly be relevant in our post-9/11 world?In this stimulating and provocative book, composer and broadcaster Andrew Ford argues that it is because we live in such discordant times that classical music is more valuable than it has ever been.Beginning with a discussion of some common cliches, he considers the nature of classical music: whether it is, for example, an international language. Then in a series of short essays, each taking as its starting point the music of a single composer including Dowland, Haydn, Berlioz, Ravel and the contemporary Finnish composer, Kaija Saariaho, he presents a composite picture of what classical music is, what it is capable of, how it works, and how it differs from other sorts of music. Finally, Ford draws on his own music as a means of explaining what goes on in a composer's mind.Classical music, says Ford, is a source not only of consolation, but of certainty. It reaffirms creativity because it has survived, he writes. It connects us to the best of civilisation at a time when we find little civilisation in our own world.
