'I FIGHT DIRTY, I KILL FOR A LIVING AND I'M NOT CAPABLE OF BEING FAITHFUL.' The words might come straight from Major Adam Flint's mouth, but they certainly don't describe the man who saved vulnerable Rose's life. Yes, Flint is illegitimate, a roughened soldier and an incorrigible rake - but Rose has never met a man so defined by honour. Who else, when faced with a lady rendered memory-less by the traumas of war, would resist the intense attraction that burns between them? Rose might not know her own name, but she knows her heart - and her heart wants Flint! Brides of Waterloo: Love Forged On The Battlefield...
This volume collects essays from academics and practitioners from a diversity of areas and perspectives in order to discuss water security at various levels and to illuminate the central idea of water security: its focus on the individual. Beginning with the big picture, this book aims to illustrate the depth of the water security crisis and its interconnections with other aspects of societal development. It particularly draws a connection to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and discusses that challenges faced in meeting the 17 sustainability development goals (SDG) by the year 2030. Moving from international to domestic and community perspectives, this book provides a unique analysis of issues and solutions to the water issues we face today in light of the ever looming global changes brought on by climate change.
Over the past few decades the recognition of our common need for water has increased, as policymakers have sought to place more focus on the individual within policy. After the recognition of water and sanitation as a fundamental human right by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, there is increasing recognition of the individual as the building block for the struggle for water security. This reality also intersects with adverse impacts of global climate change, and the book responds to the broader question: will clean and safe water be available where we need it and when we need it in the future?
The Mountain and Tidewater Songs are a set of six pieces for baritone, cello, piano, and violin. The songs are drawn from a series of poems by Daniel Mark Epstein, which appear in "No Vacancies in Hell". A deep sense of place, as well as the sweep, lyricism, and warmth of nineteenth-century American life inform both the poetry and music. The cycle charts the journey and reflections of an exile as he leaves behind the towns, countryside, and people he has known. These places and characters, like the apparitions of memory, become an interior landscape, where romance, adventure, duels, buffoonery, loss, villainy, and kindness all play out in ever-swirling reverie and drama.
The violin and cello parts are included.
Praise for Damon Ferrante's music:
Tim Smith of "The Baltimore Sun" calls Ferrante's music "focused and colorful...with an unexpected, decidedly poetic touch."
"If the tune has the elegance of traditional opera, the harmonization is very modern as the vocal lines climb and descend the melodic staircases that Ferrante has constructed for them."
Geoffrey Himes, "The Baltimore City Paper"
Mary MacCauley of "The Baltimore Sun" describes Ferrante's music as "ebullient and full of shifts of direction."
