Drafted into the Roman army and forced to campaign in northern Britain against their will, German warriors of the Usipi tribe are driven to mutiny. With an island full of angry Romans to the south of them and hostile Britons all around, they capture three warships and embark upon a daring voyage to their homeland and freedom. Their path is not easy, for they must confront their own inexperience, dissension in their ranks, the forces of nature, hostile action from both the Britons and Romans, and finally the twin spectres of disease and hunger. Based on a true story recounted by the Roman historian Tacitus, this is the story of a mutiny. The Romans had a word for it: seditio.

Maritime piracy off the coast of Somalia was first recognised as a global concern in 2008 after the hijackings of World Food Programme vessels. It remains a serious impediment to international maritime trade and a significant risk to seafarers. Bringing a criminological perspective to the subject, this book presents an analysis of Somali piracy by means of Routine Activity Theory and regulatory pluralism. Based on data from a range of sources, including published documents and in-depth interviews with representatives of industry, government, and international organisations, the study concludes that no one institution or policy will suffice to control Somali piracy. Accordingly, a number of different actors and institutions have a role to play in reducing the supply of motivated offenders, the vulnerability of prospective victims, and in enhancing guardianship. The book envisages a holistic counter-piracy program based on a pluralistic regulatory model that is sustainable within the region, and managed by the region, providing the best opportunity for both the immediate future, and for long-term success. This study will be essential reading for criminologists, public policy and legal scholars, as well as policy makers and regulators in countries affected by and dealing with piracy, and international professional advocacy groups operating in the maritime space.

This encyclopedia adopts a wider definition for the concept of ocean engineering. Specifically, it includes (1) offshore engineering: fixed and floating offshore oil and gas platforms; pipelines and risers; cables and moorings; buoy technology; foundation engineering; ocean mining; marine and offshore renewable energy; aquaculture engineering; and subsea engineering; (2) naval architecture: ship and special marine vehicle design; intact and damaged stability; technology for energy efficiency and green shipping; ship production technology; decommissioning and recycling; (3) polar and Arctic Engineering: ice mechanics; ice-structure interaction; polar operations; polar design; environmental protection; (4) underwater technologies: AUV/ROV design; AUV/ROV hydrodynamics; maneuvering and control; and underwater-specific communicating and sensing systems for AUV/ROVs. It summarizes the A–Z of the background and application knowledge of ocean engineering for use by ocean scientists and ocean engineers as well as nonspecialists such as engineers and scientists from all disciplines, economists, students, and politicians. Ocean engineering theories, ocean devices and equipment, ocean design and operation technologies are described by international experts, many from industry and each entry offers an introduction and references for further study, making current technology and operating practices available for future generations to learn from. The book also furthers our understanding of the current state of the art, leading to new and more efficient technologies with breakthroughs from new theory and materials. As the land resources approach the exploitation limit, ocean resources are becoming the next choice for the sustainable development. As such, ocean engineering is vital in the 21st century.

Highly Commended in the GA Publishers' Awards 2021: "This comprehensive resource has been designed to work alongside Progress in Geography and uses the same format and recognisable layout. It can also be used as a standalone text and is packed full of resources, well-framed activities, support and practice to help students to develop key geographical skills and think critically about what they're learning. The judges also felt it could be a useful reference for non-specialists and trainee teachers." This book is designed to help students build up and apply geographical skills throughout KS3. A wide range of skills are introduced in Unit 1, and then revisited and progressed in different contexts in Units 2-15 as part of a learning journey to becoming a geographer. These skills are progressed as an integral component of an enquiry process. The book provides a firm foundation for the geographical skills required at GCSE level and beyond. A wide range of geographical data is provided including satellite images and a large number of OS maps at a variety of scales, often linked to other data, such as ground and aerial photos. Progress in Geography Skills: Key Stage 3 can be used independently or alongside the Progress in Geography: Key Stage 3 Student book. Each page has a specific learning objective and skills focus, such as: - Conducting geographical enquiries; considering different points of view and making decisions - Drawing field sketches, linked to OS maps and locating places using lines of latitude and longitude on an atlas or grid references on OS maps - Understanding and drawing a wide variety of graphs - Analysis and presentation of statistical data - Comparing ground level photographs with Ordnance Survey maps and being able to identify coastal, glacial and river landforms on OS maps - Using newspapers to investigate issues, and detect bias - Using websites, including online GiS, as part of enquiries and investigating data

After his victory at New Aragon, Duke Aaron Sandoval has the embattled Republic in his debt. But Sandoval’s hidden agenda has more to do with his own power than any loyalty he ever had to the Republic of the Sphere. He’ll spare no expense to achieve his ultimate goal. When the Duke becomes the target of an assassination attempt, he realizes that his attempts to build a coalition against the invading House Liao are failing. Many planetary governors prefer capitulation to war. What he needs is a new ship and a new approach. To launch his new campaign, Sandoval sends his nephew Erik, fresh from the frontlines, to Shensi. His job is to convince the governor to join his uncle’s alliance instead of making peace with Liao. Although Erik is honored to be the Duke’s strong right hand, he’s convinced that his uncle’s arrogance is getting the better of him. But what Erik doesn’t yet realize is that his uncle will sacrifice anyone to achieve his dreams of glory...
