IMPRISONED BY DESIRE.... RESCUED BY ECSTASY.

It was an age of great rebellion, of a sweeping call to freedom, and a
war that had to be. And no two people belonged to their age more than
Katherine Devereaux and Captain Matthew Hampton -- the cool Union beauty
and the dashing Confederate Captain who had the audacity to abduct her.
From the wartime shipyards of Boston, to the locked cabin of a great
clipper ship, to Liverpool and white slavery, and back to the cotillions
of New York -- their stormy romance sweeps across a world at war and
blazes with the conflicts of an era!

Testing is a key component of agile development. The widespread adoption of agile methods has brought the need for effective testing into the limelight, and agile projects have transformed the role of testers. Much of a tester’s function, however, remains largely misunderstood. What is the true role of a tester? Do agile teams actually need members with QA backgrounds?

Action research was conceived as a method of collaborative, self-­reflective problem-­solving in a community context. Yet many believe it has evolved too far away from its original, directly activist roots. As a direct response to calls for a rejuvenation of the social agenda of ‘action research’, this volume provides an all-­inclusive road map to generating and implementing politically active grass-­roots research activities. It is a priceless practical guide for the newly minted researcher wanting to make a tangible difference in their profession and in the world. Where some action research models have been criticized for losing focus on the participatory and social justice roots of this type of research, this book puts social justice activism squarely center stage, guiding the researcher through the theoretical, methodological and practical considerations and constraints of developing, implementing and sustaining research in the cultural professions.­Lcating and contextualizing the . . .
