All Day: A Year of Love and Survival Teaching Incarcerated Kids at Rikers Island
Told with equal parts raw honesty and unbridled compassion, All Day recounts a year in Liza Jessie Peterson's classroom at Island Academy, the high school for inmates detained at New York City's Rikers Island. A poet and actress who had done occasional poetry workshops at the correctional facility, Peterson was ill-prepared for a full-time stint teaching a full GED curriculum program for the incarcerated youth. For the first time faced with full days teaching the rambunctious, hyper, and fragile adolescent inmates, Ms. P comes to understand the essence of her predominantly Black and Latino students as she attempts not only to educate them, but to instill them with a sense of self-worth long stripped from their lives. I have quite a spirited group of drama kings, court jesters, flyboy gangsters, tricksters, and wannabe pimps all in my charge, all up in my face, to educate, Peterson discovers. Corralling this motley crew of bad-news bears to do any lesson is like running boot camp for hyperactive gremlins. I have to be consistent, alert, firm, witty, fearless, and demanding, and most important, I have to have strong command of the subject I'm teaching. Discipline is always a challenge, with the students spouting street-infused backtalk and often bouncing off the walls with pent-up testosterone. Peterson learns quickly that she must keep the upper hand-set the rules and enforce them with rigor, even when her sympathetic heart starts to waver. Despite their relentless bravura and antics-and in part because of it-Peterson becomes a fierce advocate for her students. She works to instill the young men, mostly black, with a sense of pride about their history and culture: from their African roots to Langston Hughes and Malcolm X. She encourages them to explore and express their true feelings by writing their own poems and essays. When the boys push her buttons (on an almost daily basis) she pushes back, demanding that they meet not only her expectations or the standards of the curriculum, but set expectations for themselves-something most of them have never before been asked to do. She witnesses some amazing successes as some of the boys come into their own under her tutelage. Peterson vividly captures the prison milieu and the exuberance of the kids who have been handed a raw deal by society and have become lost within the system. Her time in the classroom teaches her something, too-that these boys want to be rescued. They want normalcy and love and opportunity.

The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement
Matthew Horace was an officer at the federal, state, and local level for 28 years working in every state in the country. Yet it was after seven years of service when Horace found himself face-down on the ground with a gun pointed at his head by a white fellow officer, that he fully understood the racism seething within America's police departments. Using gut-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts garnered by interviews with police and government officials around the country, Horace presents an insider's examination of police tactics, which he concludes is an archaic system built on toxic brotherhood. Horace dissects some of the nation's most highly publicized police shootings and communities highlighted in the Black Lives Matter movement and beyond to explain how these systems and tactics have had detrimental outcomes to the people they serve. Horace provides fresh analysis on communities experiencing the high killing and imprisonment rates due to racist policing such as Ferguson, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago from a law enforcement point of view and uncovers what has sown the seeds of violence. Timely and provocative, The Black and The Blue sheds light on what truly goes on behind the blue line.

Thomas Becket
The construction and deconstruction of Becket's reputation is central to this provocative new study. The cult of Becket has remained enduring: it was the centerpiece of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales; and in our own time it has carried powerful enough resonance to generate interpretations from T.S. Eliot, Jean Anouilh, and indeed Hollywood. This book investigates whether the popular conception of Becket through the ages is a result of valid assessments of the man and his cause, or a product of a carefully constructed myth, and how far can one correct for the bias and reach the truth.

Olympiad Value Pack Class 3: Scientists Whose Inventions Famously Made Life Easy for Us
Written in simple and lucid language, these biographical sketches of great scientists have been put together for ready reference. History of the world is replete with such instances of such men and women who went against all the odds and achieved great heights and changed the shape of the world. In fact, reading about the life-sketch of a scientist and his achievements, has certainly great infotainment value. Besides, the lives of great men and women provide us inspiration to do things differently, and more confidently. For some people these inspirations have more importance than any other motivational factors. When we learn that Edison was a poor boy without any formal schooling or Faraday was an apprentice at a stationery shop we feel greatly motivated and think, 'if they could do it we can do it too!'. We find a new confidence in ourselves. In this respect the importance of these books, specially for children, can hardly be underestimated. Rather they could even be a part of the curriculum-- as at times they can prove so inspiring and motivate a person in such a way, that they could change the entire course of the life of a person. The main aim of this series is to expand the mental horizons of our readers and motivate them to achieve great heights in life. It is certainly a very valuable addition to the literature of popular science. The book can also prove to be an ideal companion during leisure time.

Butler's Lives of the Saints: October
This October volume is part of a complete revision of Butler's Lives of the Saints . It comes in 12 volumes which correspond to the months of the year. How to live a Christian life of faith is a question every generation of Christians has sought to answer. Invariably, they have turned to the lives of the saints. They offer inspiration, hope and a clear challenge to all Christians. Saints, the popular heroes and heroines of every age, also have an importance beyond the inspiration they provide. Numerous conferences and publications testify to the increased attention being given to their lives as richly documented sources for the study of social and cultural, as well as religious history. This is the first revised edition since the major Calendar reform of 1969-70. It is based on the new Roman Martyrology being finalized by the Congregation for Divine Worship. There is a more worldwide emphasis, resulting in more expanded coverage of saints from all continents. There is also in-depth historical and contextual background on major saints, and the inclusion of many new saints and the blessed from recent decades. Some major entries include: St Theresa of Lisieux, St Bavo, Bd Francis of Pesaro, St Thomas of Hereford, St Francis of Assisi, St Bruno, Our Lady of the Rosary, St John Leonardi, St Wilfrid, St Edward the Confessor, St Callistus I, St Teresa of Avila, St Ignatius of Antioch, St Luke, St Paul of the Cross, St Fintan of Taghmon, St John of Capistrano, St Antony Mary Claret, The Forty Martyrs of England and Wales, St Cedd, Bd Contardo Ferrini, SS Simon and Jude and Ethelnoth of Canterbury.

Edward IV
Edward IV was the first Yorkist king. He ruled (with only a brief hiatus) for 22 years, ended the Wars of the Roses triumphantly in 1471, and died in his bed not invariably the place of death for a medieval monarch. The best general of his day, he destroyed the House of Lancaster. At a very difficult time, he redeemed royal prestige at home and abroad, restored order and public finances, and crushed all his opponents, including his brother Clarence. His son Edward V, still a minor, succeeded him peacefully. Yet within months Edward was deposed in favour of Richard III, his uncle. The Wars of the Roses resumed, Edward IV's sons met violent deaths, and so at Bosworth Field did the usurping Richard III. Assessment of Edward IV is inextricably bound up not only in the record of his reign, itself much disputed, but also with what turned out to be his baleful legacy. This book explores how his reputation has changed and analyses the major issues in light of contemporary and later perceptions of this controversial king

The Early H.G.Wells: A Study of the Scientific Romances
This is a sensitive study of Wells' imaginative development during his formative years. It comes at a time when interest in H.G. Wells' early writing is beginning to revive, owing, no doubt, to the current translation into reality of some aspects of science fiction. Mr. Bergonzi examines Wells' early fiction, from surviving student writings of the late eighties to 1901 when he published The First Men in the Moon, his last significant scientific romance, and Anticipations, his first systematic non-fictional treatise. The main emphasis of his study falls on the scientific romances of the nineties, which are examined in detail. In addition to literary analysis, relevant source material and reviews, which show how contemporaries received Wells' work, are noted. Wells' early attitude to science is shown to have been deeply ambivalent, as is apparent in his successive uses of the Frankenstein archetype. His intellectual attitudes tended towards scepticism and pessimism rather than to the 'utopian' optimism associated with his later career. These romances reflect in imaginative and non-discursive form some of the major preoccupations of late-Victorian England: the impact of Darwinism, of Socialism, and an increasing lack of national self-confidence. Mr. Bergonzi sees Wells as essentially a fin de siecle myth-maker, and he argues that it is this aspect of Wells' work which most requires attention if he is to be remembered in the future. Two early pieces by Wells, now unobtainable elsewhere, are given in an Appendix. One, The Chronic Argonauts, a fragment of a fantastic novel written at the age of 21, is the earliest draft of The Time Machine.

Melanie, Bird with a Broken Wing: A Mother's Story
Gripping, raw, and beautiful, this book reveals the struggles and rewards of caring for a child with severe disability and helps professionals work more sensitively and effectively with families of children with special needs. Written with grace and candor by special education professional Beth Harry, the book chronicles the life of her daughter, Melanie, who was born with a rare form of cerebral palsy and died less than 6 years later. Captivating the reader from page one, Dr. Harry illuminates the full spectrum of her parenting experiences--from the day her little bird came into the world to the day she left. Readers will come away with a deep understanding of: the complex emotions that parents experience as they adjust to life with a child who has special needs; the practical and emotional aspects of supporting a child with feeding difficulties, vision impairment, and limited motor skills; the joy parents experience when their child begins to communicate and make personal connections; the lasting impact a professional's words can have on a parent, and the need to provide positive support that allows a child to reach her full potential; the services, therapies, and interventions that improved Melanie's quality of life--and how they've changed since her story began in the 1970s. Ideal for use as a supplemental text in courses for preservice early interventionists, early childhood special educators, special educators, and health professionals, this book gives readers an unforgettable inside look at what families experience when their child has a disability--and how to meet their needs as their child grows. Eye-opening and inspiring, Melanie, Bird with a Broken Wing will leave a lasting impression and will, as Dr. Harry urges, prepare readers to believe the messages of their hearts as they make professional decisions.

Who's Who in Thomas Hardy
This guide presents for the first time this century a catalogue listing the characters in the fiction of Thomas Hardy. In minutes, the reader can find a summary of who does what and in which work - useful for students, scholars, and lovers of Hardy everywhere. The fruit of a lifetime of study, journalist Huw Barker Rahane has created a lively and concise register of colourful men and women, dramatically bringing out Hardy's constant theme of sexual desire and fulfilment - and the consequences where the balance is not struck. The book presents an unrivalled opportunity to rediscover painlessly many gripping and half-forgotten works, some of them quite short, all catalogued here alongside old mainstays such as The Mayor of Casterbridge and Jude the Obscure . Thanks to the book's cool, informal style, the reader will be encouraged to go back to the original and uniquely rich world of Hardy's imagination.

A Thorn in My Pocket is Eustacia Cutler's story of raising her daughter, Temple Grandin, in the conservative world of the fifties, a time when children with autism were routinely diagnosed as infant schizophrenics and banished to institutions. She tells of her fight to keep Temple in the mainstream of family, community and school life, how Temple responded and went on to succeed, as Ms. Cutler puts it, beyond my wildest dreams. Ms. Cutler also explores the nature of the autism disorder as doctors understand it today, and how its predominant characteristics reflect our own traits in an exaggerated form.

The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement
Longlisted for the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction Matthew Horace was an officer at the federal, state, and local level for 28 years working in every state in the country.
