When the journalist Lynn Barber was 16, she was picked up at a bus-stop by an attractive older man who drew up in his sports car - and her life was almost wrecked. A bright confident girl, on course to go to Oxford, she began a relationship which, incredibly, was encouraged by her conventional, suburban parents and which took her into the louche, semi-criminal world of west London just as the 1960s began. Ruin beckoned, until one day she made an important discovery. 'An Education', the opening piece of this fascinating memoir, was highly praised when first published in Granta magazine, and is currently being filmed by the BBC with a Nick Hornby script.

Dave Mulder comes from an academic background, and his experience in the world of politics has been insightful. He has many timely observations as to how to strengthen the political system. Tom Osborne, Athletic Director, University of Nebraska, Lincoln It’s refreshing to see two Legislators from two opposite parties, both of great character and high moral values, who can work and cooperate together on issues important to Iowa and not just vote the party line, which in many cases truly fails the purpose of good law-making for the betterment of the great state of Iowa. Bernie Saggau, Retired Executive Secretary of the Iowa High School Athletic Assoc. Dave and Frank’s informative, lively discussion of their years in the Iowa Senate is a must read for anyone who wants to serve in an elected office. Their political philosophies, including faith-based life lessons, give readers, educators, and students a unique in-depth perspective on grass roots politics. It is my privilege to edit this book. Lianne Mercer, Author of Compassionate Witness: Before We Say Goodbye

In January 1961, following eighteen months of litigation that culminated in a federal court order, Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter became the first black students to enter the University of Georgia. Calvin Trillin, then a reporter for Time Magazine, attended the court fight that led to the admission of Holmes and Hunter and covered their first week at the university--a week that began in relative calm, moved on to a riot and the suspension of the two students "for their own safety," and ended with both returning to the campus under a new court order. Shortly before their graduation in 1963, Trillin came back to Georgia to determine what their college lives had been like. He interviewed not only Holmes and Hunter but also their families, friends, and fellow students, professors, and university administrators. The result was this book--a sharply detailed portrait of how these two young people faced coldness, hostility, and occasional understanding on a southern campus in the midst of a great social change.

This book brings together five lectures given by eminent educationalists in memory of the work of Lawrence Stenhouse, an influential figure in the field of education during the 1970s and early 1980s. The lectures focus on different themes in his work, reviewing them in the light of recent policy changes. The lectures review issues to do with the school curriculum, teaching and learning, teacher education and teacher research. A strong theme across the papers is the authors' concern with the political context of educational change. Jean Rudduck has also published Innovation and Change, Dimensions of Discipline, and Developing a Gender Policy in Secondary Schools.

An Education of Value is about the problems involved in reforming American schools - in the past and in the decades to come. The authors consider the historical, political, and philosophical tensions between the perennial twin goals of American education: equality and excellence. They discuss the necessary preconditions for enduring progress: enhancing the conditions of teaching, improving the education and re-education of teachers, rethinking the curriculum, developing learning through the use of computers, and strengthening the leadership of schools. The issues raised in this book concern every modern society, and the authors' ideas will challenge a wide audience.

Jack Crittenden's excellent new study looks behind the modern democratic rhetoric to reveal a system of government that excludes citizens from participating directly in decision making. The book combines a thorough examination of the rhetorical underpinnings of democratic education with radical solutions for overhauling a system of civic education that dates back to the Founding Fathers.
