In the days of rain : a daughter, a father, a cult by Rebecca Stott( Book )

15 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rebecca Stott both adored and feared her father, Roger Stott, a high-ranking minister in the Brighton, England, branch of the Exclusive Brethren, a separatist fundamentalist Christian sect. A man of contradictions, he preached that the Brethren should shun the outside world, which was ruled by Satan, yet he kept a radio in the trunk of his car and read Shakespeare and Yeats. Years later, when the Stotts broke with the Brethren after a scandal involving the cult's leader, Roger became an actor and compulsive gambler who left the family penniless and ended up in jail ... In the Days of Rain is Rebecca Stott's attempt to make sense of her childhood in the Exclusive Brethren, to understand her father's role in the cult and in the breaking apart of her family, and to come to be at peace with her relationship with a larger-than-life figure whose faults were matched by a passion for life, a thirst for knowledge, and a love of literature and beauty. A father-daughter story as well as a memoir of growing up in a closed-off community and then finding a way out of it, this is an inspiring and beautiful account of the bonds of family and the power of self-invention."--Jacket

Darwin's ghosts : the secret history of evolution by Rebecca Stott( Recording )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fabrication of the late-Victorian femme fatale : the kiss of death by Rebecca Stott( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the rise of the femme fatale as a prominant fictional type in late nineteenth-century British culture. As a stereotype she has been 'fabricated', that is to say constructed as a 'figure in the carpet' of the fin-de-siècle. The book argues that Rider Haggard's She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed, Bram Stoker's female vampires and Conrad's destructive Malayan or African women, even Hardy's Tess, are all caught up in a series of late nineteenth-century contexts: biological determinism, imperialism, race, theories about female sexuality, degeneration and evolutionary theory

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the academic essay is central to individual achievement in Higher Education, it often seems to students to be an activity that goes on outside rather than inside seminar and tutorial rooms. Making Your Case: a Practical Guide to Essay Writing is a practical book designed to demystify the processes of academic writing through careful explanation and a series of engaging and practical exercises. The book offers a valuable opportunity for the reader to investigate and learn about the processes of academic writing and includes chapters on: collecting information; identifying an argument; designing a plan; and editing, proof-reading and referencing. Although it is rooted in the study of literary texts, the techniques explored and strategies offered apply to all courses and forms of writing which require a degree of argumentation and analysis."--Cover
