How Art Made Pop
A remarkable and exhaustive study examining the intertwined histories of pop music and the visual arts, and exploring the exhilarating exchange between art schools and the pop stars that they nurtured (or, occasionally, expelled) How Art Made Pop encompasses the worldwide history of art school rock, and brings the story up to date by surveying recent trends and the practices contemporary of artist-musicians The individuals that populate How Art Made Pop may still have become successful musicians if they hadn't studied art, but the kind of musicians that they became, and the kind of music that they became interested in that was predominantly informed and modified by art school attendance. Where once these musicians would have considered themselves entertainers, they now became artists. And hence what they practiced - i.e. popular music - became an art form, not least because they said it was.

Wars of Alexander's Successors 323-281 Bc: Volume 2: Battles and Tactics
When the dying Alexander the Great was asked to whom he bequeathed his vast empire, he supposedly replied 'to the strongest'. There ensued a long series of struggles between his generals and governors for control of these vast territories. Most of these Diadochi, or successors, were consummate professionals who had learnt their trade under Alexander and, in some cases, his father Philip. This second volume studies how they applied that experience and further developed the art of war in a further four decades of warfare. This is a period rich in fascinating tactical developments. The all-conquering Macedonian war machine developed by Philip and Alexander was adapted in various ways (such as the addition of war elephants) by the different successors according to their resources. Siege and naval warfare is also included.

Programming AWS Lambda: Build and Deploy Serverless Applications with Java
Most AWS Lambda books and introductions focus on Javascript and Python, but this book is written explicitly for Java developers who want to embrace the world of Serverless through AWS Lambda-without having to learn a new language on top of it. Serverless is a revolution in how we build and deploy software. It drastically reduces the complexity of building and operating applications, and reduces time-to-market and costs. AWS Lambda is Amazon's Serverless Functions-as-a-Service platform, and is the core of most Serverless efforts ongoing today.

Hannibal's Road: The Second Punic War in Italy 213-203 BC
Many books have been written on the Second Punic War and Hannibal in particular but few give much space to his campaigns in the years from 213 - 203 BC'. Most studies concentrate on Hannibal's series of stunning victories in the early stages of the war, culminating at Cannae in 216 BC, then refocus on the activities of his nemesis ,Scipio Africanus, in Spain until the two meet in the final showdown at Zama. But this has led to the neglect of some of the Carthaginian genius' most remarkable campaigns. By 212 the wider war was definitely going against the Carthaginians. Yet Hannibal, despite being massively outnumbered and with little support from home, was able to sustain his polyglot army and campaign actively across southern Italy for another ten years. His skilful manoeuvring and victory in numerous engagements kept several veteran armies of the normally aggressive Romans tied up and on the defensive, until Scipio's invasion of North Africa pulled him home to defend Carthage. Mike Roberts follows the course of these remarkable events in detail, analysing Hannibal's strategy and aims in this phase of the war and revealing a genius that had lost none of its lustre in adversity.

Two Deaths at Amphipolis
This original book looks in detail at arguably the two most significant characters on either side in the middle years of the great Peloponnesian War and the showdown in and around Amphipolis that led to both their deaths in 422 BC. The Spartan commander Brasidas was already a veteran of many campaigns when he headed for the strategically important northern theatre. Cleon was the key hawk in the Athenian assembly who led his fellow citizens in a major effort to counter the impact that Brasidas was having in the north. The two finally clashed in battle outside the Athenian colony of Amphipolis which Brasidas had by then captured (the great historian Thucydides being exiled for his failure to defend it). The Spartans won but both men died in the fighting, their passing having far-reaching consequences for the subsequent course of the war. By focussing on the fatal duel between Brasidas and Cleon, and drawing on all available sources to supplement Thucydides' seminal account, Mike Roberts offers a valuable new perspective on the Peloponnesian War.

Rome's Third Samnite War, 298-290 BC: The Last Stand of the Linen Legion
The Third Samnite War (298-290 BC) was a crucial episode in the early history of Rome. Upon its outcome rested mastery of central Italy, and the independent survival of both Rome and the Samnites. Determined to resist aggressive Roman expansion, the Samnites forged a powerful alliance with the Senones (a tribe of Italian Gauls), Etruscans and Umbrians. The result was eight years of hard campaigning, brutal sieges and bitter battles that stretched Rome to the limit. The desperate nature of the struggle is illustrated by the ritual self-sacrifice (devotio) by the Roman consul Publius Decimus Mus at the Battle of Sentinum (295 BC), which restored the resolve of the wavering Roman troops, and by the Samnite Linen Legion at the Battle of Aquilonia (393 BC), each man of which was bound by a sacred oath to conquer or die on the battlefield. Mike Roberts, who has travelled the Italian landscape upon which these events played out, mines the sources (which are more reliable, he argues, than for Rome's previous wars) to produce a compelling narrative of this momentous conflict.

Twilight of the Hellenistic World
Twilight of the Hellenistic World analyses the complex series of conflicts between the Hellenistic Successor states (the fragments of Alexander the Great's short-lived empire) in the generation before the Romans intervened in the region. Until now this period has rarely been treated in any depth, usually reduced to a summary as context for discussion of the Roman conquests. Bob Bennett and Mike Roberts demonstrate that this period of almost-constant conflict and rivalry makes a fascinating subject of study in its own right. For example, they describe Macedon's war with Cleomenes III and the final crushing of Sparta's last gasp as an independent power; and the campaigns in the east through which the Seleucid king Antiochus (later defeated by the Romans at Magnesia) became known as Antiochus the Great.Twilight of the Hellenistic World shows how the Hellenistic monarchs, while aware of Rome's epic clash with Carthage in the West, did not yet see her as a major threat and were preoccupied with more immediate concerns. As well as clearly narrating the complex events, the authors assess the various military systems of the Hellenistic states and developments in warfare on land and at sea. This is a very original book on an unduly neglected period of history.

Spartan Supremacy 412-371 BC
Sparta was a small city which consistently punched above its weight in the affairs of classical Greece, happily meddling in the affairs of the other cities. For two centuries her warriors were acknowledged as second to none. Yet at only one period in its long history, in the late fourth and early third century BC, did the home of these grim warriors seem set to entrench itself as the dominant power in the Greek world. This period includes the latter stages of the Peloponnesian War from 412 BC to the Spartan victory in 402, and then down to the Spartan defeat by the Thebans at Leuctra in 371 BC, where it all began to unravel for the Spartan Empire Surprisingly few previous books have covered the tumultuous first decades of the fourth century BC, particularly when compared to the ample coverage of the Peloponnesian War. As the authors explain, although the earlier period has the benefit of Thucydides' magisterial history, the period covered here is actually well served by sources and well worthy of study. There are many interesting characters here, including Alcibiades, Lysander, Agesilaus, Pelopidas and Epaminondas, to name but a few. In addition there are several campaigns and battles that are reported in enough detail to make them interesting and comprehensible to the reader. Bob Bennett and Mike Roberts untangle the complexities of this important but unduly neglected period for the modern reader.

The New Science Teacher's Handbook: What You Didn't Learn From Student Teaching
One of the first activities I ask new science teachers to do in my methods course is to think of a memorable science activity from their past. Whether it's creating an exploding vinegar and baking soda volcano, dissecting a frog, or building a mousetrap car, new teachers relish their memories from school. Beyond the projects themselves, we also discuss the teachers who facilitated these learning experiences, focusing on how they inspired their students to develop a passion and curiosity for science. Once this is established, I ask my students the million-dollar question: `How are you going to become one of those teachers?' By reading The New Science Teacher's Handbook, you will learn 12 specific steps that will help you on your way to becoming a skilled classroom teacher. The authors make each chapter both helpful and fun to read by including: The Story-actual experiences that happened within one of the authors' classrooms. As the authors note, these true stories demonstrate that even those who go on to write books on best practices in the classroom didn't start off as perfect educators. The Moral-what the authors learned from the story. Steps for Success-multiple solutions you can choose from to fit your concerns and school environment. What Does Success Look Like?-how the classroom looks after implementing the steps for success. Resources you can turn to if you want to explore each topic in more detail. The book addresses areas that are often underrepresented, if not completely ignored, by prevalent science methods pedagogy textbooks. Whether you are on your way to becoming a science teacher or a teacher in your early years, the authors write, we feel confident the ideas presented here will help you become the teacher you've always wanted to be.

Wars of Alexander's Successors 323-281 Bc: Volume 1- Commanders and Campaigns
When the dying Alexander the Great was asked to whom he bequeathed his vast empire, he supposedly replied 'to the strongest'. There ensued a long series of struggles between his generals and governors for control of these territories. Most of these Diadochi (Successors) were consummate professionals who had learnt the art of war under Alexander or even his father, Philip. Few died a peaceful death and the last survivors of this tough breed were still leading their armies against each other well into their seventies. Colourful characters, epic battles, treacheryand subterfuge make this a period with great appeal to anyone interested in ancient history and ancient warfare in particular. The wars shaped the map from the Balkans to India for the next couple of centuries.This first volume introduces the key personalities - characters such as Antigonos 'Monopthalmus' (the One-eyed) and his son 'Demetrius 'Poliorcetes' (the Besieger), Seleucus 'Nicator' ('the Victorious') and Ptolemy 'Soter' ('the Saviour') - and gives a narrative of the causes and course of these wars from the death of Alexander to the Battle of Corupedium (281 BC) when the last two original Diadochi faced each other one final time.
