Nov 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Reflecting the authors' fifty years of combined teaching experience, The Longwood Guide to Writing is among the most accessible, up-to-date, and authoritative aims-based rhetorics on the market. This guide introduces readers to all phases of the writing process and then provides “writing occasions”—projects that encourage the reader to practice what they've learned and improve their own writing. The “occasions” include writing personal essays, informative and evaluative essays, essays from and about literature, and position, persuasive, and problem/solution essays. Each of these core writing chapters features five to seven professional readings, discusses the rhetorical triangle, and follows a student through their writing process. Students also learn effective ways to conduct research,...


The Way of Transition
William Bridges

Paperback

Book Review
When author Bill Bridges's wife died from breast cancer, he began to question all his previous groundbreaking work on transitions. Having conducted seminars and written bestselling books (Transitions, Managing Transitions), Bridges had built a reputation as an expert on the topic. And yet, "I felt now that my words had totally failed to match in depth the experience of actually being in transition," he explains. After floundering in self-doubt for months after his wife died, Bridges embarked on a spiritual pilgrimage through Wales. During his visits to sacred sites, Bridges began to see that he hadn't been misguiding people. Rather, he simply had more to offer on the subject of transition--more depth, more spirit, and above all else, more experience. So at 66 years old he wrote this excellent and highly personal book in...

Bridge on the Drina
Ivo Andric
0226020452
August 1977
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Bridge on the Drina is a vivid depiction of the suffering history has imposed upon the people of Bosnia from the late 16th century to the beginning of World War I. As we seek to make sense of the current nightmare in this region, this remarkable, timely book serves as a reliable guide to its people and history.

"No better introduction to the study of Balkan and Ottoman history exists, nor do I know of any work of fiction that more persuasively introduces the reader to a civilization other than our own. It is an intellectual and emotional adventure to encounter the Ottoman world through Andric's pages in its grandiose beginning and at its tottering finale. It is, in short, a marvelous work, a masterpiece, and very much sui generis. . . . Andric's sensitive portrait of social change in distant...

Offbeat Marijuana

Paperback

Robert Scheer, Los Angeles Times
"Let me offer praise for Offbeat Marijuana. Finally, a book on the decriminalizing side of the marijuana debate that doesn't take itself too seriously--sort of a giggling high."

From Booklist
Rubin's entertaining and provocative cultural history of pot recounts Robert Mitchum's famous 1948 reefer contretemps, significantly notes medical marijuana advocate Robert Randall (coauthor of Marijuana Rx ), and includes an earnest essay exploring industrial and other nonrecreational uses of the evil weed. A special place in the text, rather like one in Hades, is reserved for Harry J. Anslinger, "the government official most responsible for creating anti-marijuana hysteria in America." Heading the Federal Bureau of Narcotics 1930^-62, Anslinger spewed...

From Publishers Weekly
William Monk faces special challenges in bestseller Perry's absorbing 15th novel to feature the Victorian policeman (after 2005's The Shifting Tide), as he must convince skeptical fellow officers of his competence to lead the corruption-ridden Thames River Police during a rampant crime wave. In a fogbound setting evocative of Conan Doyle, newly appointed Superintendent Monk and his river patrol watch helplessly as two young lovers plunge to their deaths from a bridge. Monk's exhaustive investigation, aided by his activist wife, Hester, soon reveals a deadly conflict between the two lovers' families over the hasty construction of a vast sewer complex built to prevent a recurrence of the "Great Stink" and typhoid epidemic of 1863. A riveting pursuit of an unknown assassin brings Monk in contact with the city's most...


Three Billy Goats Gruff
Paul Galdone

September 1981
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2 Only the familiar plot of this well-known Norwegian folktale is recognizable in this revision. Gone is the cadence and beauty of G. W. Dasent's translation of Asbjornsen and Moe's text, found in Marcia Brown's version (HBJ, 1957; o.p.). Instead there is language devoid of rhythm and mystery. In addition, unnecessary motivations are ascribed to the characters that serve to explain the reason for their violent actions (the troll is hungry; the big Billy Goat Gruff is angry). These explanations serve only to dilute the power of the story. The full-color illustrations are humorous; the goats walk about on their hind legs, the smallest goat wears a diaper and sucks a pacifier, and the biggest wears a black leather jacket, to reinforce the point that he is tough enough to destroy the troll.
