Book Summary:

The transformation of schooling from a twelve-year jail sentence to freedom to learn. John Taylor Gatto's Weapons of Mass Instruction , now available in paperback, focuses on mechanisms of traditional education which cripple imagination, discourage critical thinking, and create a false view of learning as a byproduct of rote-memorization drills. Gatto's earlier book, Dumbing Us Down , introduced the now-famous expression of the title into the common vernacular. Weapons of Mass Instruction adds another chilling metaphor to the brief against conventional schooling. Gatto demonstrates that the harm school inflicts is rational and deliberate. The real function of pedagogy, he argues, is to render the common population manageable. To that end, young people must be conditioned to rely upon experts, to remain divided from natural alliances and to accept disconnections from their own lived experiences. They must at all costs be discouraged from developing self-reliance and independence. Escaping this trap requires a strategy Gatto calls "open source learning" which imposes no artificial divisions between learning and life. Through this alternative approach our children can avoid being indoctrinated-only then can they achieve self-knowledge, good judgment, and courage.

Book Summary:

With over 70,000 copies of the first edition in print, this radical treatise on public education has been a New Society Publishers’ bestseller for 10 years! Thirty years in New York City’s public schools led John Gatto to the sad conclusion that compulsory schooling does little but teach young people to follow orders like cogs in an industrial machine. This second edition describes the wide-spread impact of the book and Gatto’s "guerrilla teaching." John Gatto has been a teacher for 30 years and is a recipient of the New York State Teacher of the Year award. His other titles include A Different Kind of Teacher (Berkeley Hills Books, 2001) and The Underground History of American Education (Oxford Village Press, 2000).

Book Summary:

The Anarchist Cookbook will shock, it will disturb, it will provoke. It places in historical perspective an era when "Turn on, Burn down, Blow up" are revolutionary slogans of the day. Says the author" "This book... is not written for the members of fringe political groups, such as the Weatherman, or The Minutemen. Those radical groups don't need this book. They already know everything that's in here. If the real people of America, the silent majority, are going to survive, they must educate themselves. That is the purpose of this book." In what the author considers a survival guide, there is explicit information on the uses and effects of drugs, ranging from pot to heroin to peanuts. There i detailed advice concerning electronics, sabotage, and surveillance, with data on everything from bugs to scramblers. There is a comprehensive chapter on natural, non-lethal, and lethal weapons, running the gamut from cattle prods to sub-machine guns to bows and arrows.

Book Summary:

First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.

Book Summary:

As a budding spy, what better way to conceal your clandestine activities than to miniaturize your secret agent arsenal? Hide a mini catapult in a breath mint tin. Turn a Tic Tac case into vest-pocket candy shooter. Or transform a milk jug cap onto a fake wristwatch that launches tiny paper darts. Toy designer and author John Austin provides detailed, step-by-step instructions with diagrams to show James Bondiacs how to build 35 different spy weapons and surveillance tools. All of the projects in MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction 2 are built from common household items—binder clips, playing cards, rubber bands, markers, clothespins, paper clips, and discarded packaging—clearly detailed on materials lists. In addition to movie-inspired sidearms and other "weapons," you'll find plans to construct periscopes, bionic ears, grappling hooks, and decipher pens. Once you have assembled your arsenal, the author provides a number of ideas on how to hide your stash—inside a deck of cards, a false-bottom soda bottle, or a cereal box briefcase—and targets for practicing your spycraft, including a flip-down firing range, a fake security camera, and sharks with laser beams. And if you think yourself more of an evil-genius in training, this book also has projects to keep you busy while you finish planning your volcano lair—a Q-pick blow gun, a paper throwing star, a bowler hat launcher, and more. Fluffy Persian cat not included.

Book Summary:

"An urgent and compelling account of great bravery and passion." —Susan Orlean Award-winning journalist Delphine Minoui recounts the true story of a band of young rebels, a besieged Syrian town, and an underground library built from the rubble of war Reading is an act of resistance. Daraya is a town outside Damascus, the very spot where the Syrian Civil War began. Long a site of peaceful resistance to the Assad regimes, Daraya fell under siege in 2012. For four years, no one entered or left, and aid was blocked. Every single day, bombs fell on this place—a place of homes and families, schools and children, now emptied and broken into bits. And then a group searching for survivors stumbled upon a cache of books in the rubble. In a week, they had six thousand volumes; in a month, fifteen thousand. A sanctuary was born: a library where people could escape the blockade, a paper fortress to protect their humanity. The library offered a marvelous range of books—from Arabic poetry to American self-help, Shakespearean plays to stories of war in other times and places. The visitors shared photos and tales of their lives before the war, planned how to build a democracy, and tended the roots of their community despite shell-shocked soil. In the midst of the siege, the journalist Delphine Minoui tracked down one of the library’s founders, twenty-three-year-old Ahmad. Over text messages, WhatsApp, and Facebook, Minoui came to know the young men who gathered in the library, exchanged ideas, learned English, and imagined how to shape the future, even as bombs kept falling from above. By telling their stories, Minoui makes a far-off, complicated war immediate and reveals these young men to be everyday heroes as inspiring as the books they read. The Book Collectors is a testament to their bravery and a celebration of the power of words.

Book Summary:

In a world where moats and drawbridges are in short supply, many people are poorly equipped to defend their turf. However, author and toy designer John Austin can show even the novice knight how to turn pencils, rubber bands, and binder clips into powerful, miniaturized catapults and more. A pair of chopsticks, a few cotton swabs, tape, and string make a handy launcher. A pair of old CDs, craft sticks, and discarded batteries can be fashioned into a working trebuchet. And a bottle cap and rubber band can be transformed into a tiny, toothpick-launching crossbow. This handy resource provides detailed, step-by-step instructions with diagrams to show desktop warriors how to build 35 different siege weapons. All of the projects in MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction 3 are built from common household and office items—plastic rulers, disposable utensils, markers, clothes pins, paper clips, wire hangers, and discarded packaging—all clearly detailed on materials lists. Builders are given a variety of catapults, crossbows, trebuchets, ballistae, and onagers to choose from. Once they’ve assembled their arsenals, the author provides readers a number of medieval targets to practice their shooting skills. An empty milk carton becomes a siege tower; an oatmeal box, a castle turret. Armed and trained, there’s no need for a person’s cubicle, desk, or personal space to go undefended. Huzzah! John Austin is a professional toy designer and author of MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction, So Now You’re a Zombie, and MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction 2. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
