Book Summary:

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of "client-centered therapy." His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers's work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers's "client-centered therapy" becomes particularly timely and important.

Book Summary:

The first memoir for young readers by sports legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. At one time, Lew Alcindor was just another kid from New York City with all the usual problems: He struggled with fitting in, with pleasing a strict father, and with overcoming shyness that made him feel socially awkward. But with a talent for basketball, and an unmatched team of supporters, Lew Alcindor was able to transform and to become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. From a childhood made difficult by racism and prejudice to a record-smashing career on the basketball court as an adult, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's life was packed with ""coaches"" who taught him right from wrong and led him on the path to greatness. His parents, coaches Jack Donahue and John Wooden, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, and many others played important roles in Abdul-Jabbar's life and sparked him to become an activist for social change and advancement. The inspiration from those around him, and his drive to find his own path in life, are highlighted in this personal and awe-inspiring journey. Written especially for young readers, Becoming Kareem chronicles how Kareem Abdul-Jabbar become the icon and legend he is today, both on and off the court.

Everyday life is loud with ringing phones, blaring TVs, and yelling children. Women find themselves longing for time away from it all so they can really hear God. “But when I pored over the pages of Scripture,” says author Sharon Jaynes, “I discovered that some of God’s most memorable messages were not delivered while men and women were away on a spiritual retreat, but right in the middle of everyday life. He spoke to Gideon while he was threshing wheat and to shepherds while they were watching their flocks by night.” Using wit, Southern charm, and wisdom, Sharon invites women everywhere to explore answers to the heartcry, “How can I hear the voice of God?” Includes helpful study guide.

"Becoming a Citizen is a terrific book. Important, innovative, well argued, theoretically significant, and empirically grounded. It will be the definitive work in the field for years to come."--Frank D. Bean, Co-Director, Center for Research on Immigration, Population and Public Policy "This book is in three ways innovative. First, it avoids the domestic navel-gazing of U.S .immigration studies, through an obvious yet ingenious comparison with Canada. Second, it shows that official multiculturalism and common citizenship may very well go together, revealing Canada, and not the United States, as leader in successful immigrant integration. Thirdly, the book provides a compelling picture of how the state matters in making immigrants citizens. An outstanding contribution to the migration and citizenship literature!"--Christian Joppke, American University of Paris

Book Summary:

There is an extraordinary gap in the published history of schooling in the twentieth century. Nowhere is the voice of the teacher, telling his or her own story, extensively to be heard. This book, drawing not only upon the official documentary record, but also upon the previously untapped recollections of more than 100 former classroom teachers, aims to fill this gap. In Becoming Teachers, the nation's teachers from more than half a century ago tell what twentieth century education has looked like and felt like from their side of the classroom. The book concentrates particularly on the years between the end of the First World War and the passing of the landmark 1944 Education Act. All of the former state school teachers whose testimony stands at the centre of the book began their teaching careers in this period, and most completed the bulk of their classroom teaching in these years. Oral testimony is set alongside more conventional documentary sources and thematic analysis and individual life histories are brought together. In this respect, the work will break new ground in terms of its methodological approach as well as in terms of its substantive historical concerns.

Book Summary:

"On Becoming-Music: Between Boredom and Ecstasy is a critical approach to the possibility of music as an art form in the age of media. It opens our ears and our minds to the dialectics of repetition and variation, ecstasy and entertainment in music." - Michael Schmidt "In our world of conventional music pieties to which almost everyone pays lip service, Peter Price and Tyler Burba have opened up a new world of sound aesthetics-with terrific results. This book is an exhilarating plunge into a playful world of sound at its most ethereal: it's an exploration that is an engaging and forthright manifesto into why mix culture means so much more in the 21st century than anything in the rear view mirror." - Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid -----Sound as Art in the Age of Global Entertainment examines the changing role of music as art and entertainment in a world of global commodity circulation. From Adorno to the iPod and Jean-Luc Nancy on techno, this text is a "mashup" of music, philosophy, and political economy. -----The Ecstasy of Difference: The Phenomenology of Repetition and Variation in Music debunks the relation of the ecstatic experience through music to repetition. It investigates the role of form, genre, and the music market on the possibilities of ecstatic listening and how music has been used throughout history to subdue through pseudo-exaltation. Clearing our ears of these ideological aesthetics, we are left with an opening for a truly ecstatic becoming-music. About the authors: Peter Price is a composer, digital artist, and media theorist. He co-directs "thefidget space" in Philadelphia, a research laboratory for new forms of art, performance, and media. Peter received an M.A. from the European Graduate School and is a candidate for a PhD in Media Philosophy. Tyler Burba is a musician/poet performing in the groups Snowboots, a psychedelic folk band, and Visit, an existential country band. Tyler completed his M.A. in Communication at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, where he is currently pursuing a PhD. He lives and teaches in New York City.

Book Summary:

Through a series of exquisite encounters with children, and through a lucid opening up of new aspects of poststructuralist theorizing, Bronwyn Davies opens up new ways of thinking about, and intra-acting with, children. This book carefully guides the reader through a wave of thought that turns the known into the unknown, and then slowly, carefully, makes new forms of thought comprehensible, opening, through all the senses, a deep understanding of our embeddedness in encounters with each other and with the material world. This book takes us into Reggio-Emilia-inspired Swedish preschools in Sweden, into the author’s own community in Australia, into poignant memories of childhood, and offers the reader insights into: new ways of thinking about children and their communities; the act of listening as emergent and alive; ourselves as mobile and multiple subjects; the importance of remaining open to the not-yet-known. Defining research as diffractive, and as experimental, Davies’ relationship to the teachers and pedagogues she worked with is one of co-experimentation. Her relationship with the children is one in which she explores the ways in which her own new thinking and being might emerge, even as old ways of thinking and being assert themselves and interfere with the unfolding of the new. She draws us into her ongoing experimentation, asking that we think hard, all the while delighting our senses with the poetry of her writing, and the stories of her encounters with children.
