To Be One of Us
To Be One of Us (March 1993)
Cultural Conflict, Creative Democracy, and Education
Nancy Bevin Warehime - Author

"Anyone who ventures to discuss the moral implications of a given subject matter such as education, is asking for trouble. Much safer, the 'wise' will tell us, to keep distanced from the subject matter, to be reportorial rather than involved, or to let others work on the 'implications.' Fortunately for her readers, Dr. Warehime rejects such advice. She is not only a map-maker but a participant in what is happening on the terrain she has pictured ...(Read More)

Toward Deep Changes
C. A. Bowers - Author

"A light where there has been none! This daring, timely book addresses an urgent topic: the connections between formal education and the way we treat the relationship between ourselves and the earth's natural systems and resources." -- Lester R. Brown, President, Worldwatch Institute

"While most educationists are running about telling us the sky is falling, Bowers points to our feet and tells us that it is the earth which needs our attentio...(Read More)
The Teacher as Expert
The Teacher as Expert (January 1992)
A Theoretical and Historical Examination
Robert Welker - Author

"The question of expertise in teaching runs to the heart of what we have become as a society. Experts are everywhere. What this means and whether this is a good thing are matters that need to be debated. Welker tells us that technology is not enough, and suggests that in teaching, as elsewhere, we can never get by without human judgment and deliberation over values. Welker serves to remind us that even the advocates of specializations and techni...(Read More)
The Tact of Teaching
The Tact of Teaching (August 1991)
The Meaning of Pedagogical Thoughtfulness
Max van Manen - Author

This book is a welcome antidote to the preponderance of psychological texts that paint adult-child interactions as a series of discrete tasks and skills. While acknowledging the place of traditional skills approaches, van Manen openly, directly, and wholeheartedly addresses those dimensions of relationships that psychology cannot handle, primary among which is the elusive ability to be with children in a way that makes personal growth possible." --...(Read More)

It is a superior textbook for courses in the history of western education, tightly organized to cover the territory while developing a strong central theme addressing the continuities of western educational experience. Special attention is given to philosophies of knowled...(Read More)

Progressive Education at the Crossroads
Daniel Tanner - Author

This book tells the fascinating story of the Progressive Education movement of the 1930s and 1940s, which remains the most original and powerful intellectual force ever generated within professional education in this country.

In this compelling narrative, Daniel Tanner details, through close examination of the scholarly l...(Read More)
Researching Lived Experience
Researching Lived Experience (July 1990)
Human Science for an Action Sensitive Pedagogy
Max van Manen - Author

Researching Lived Experience introduces an approach to qualitative research methodology in education and related fields that is distinct from traditional approaches derived from the behavioral or natural sciences—an approach rooted in the “everyday lived experience” of human beings in educational situations. Rather than relying on abstract generalizations and theories, van Manen offers an alternative that taps the unique natu...(Read More)
Religious Fundamentalism and American Education
Religious Fundamentalism and American Education (April 1990)
The Battle for the Public Schools
Eugene F. Provenzo Jr. - Author

For the past twenty-five years, 'ultra-fundamentalist' Christians have put increasing pressure on American public education to conform exclusively with their own philosophy and vision of education and culture. Eugene Provenzo considers and addresses the impact that the fundamentalist movement has had on such issues as censorship, textbook content, Creationism versus Evolution, the family and education, school prayer, and the state regulation of Chr...(Read More)
The Moral Collapse of the University
The Moral Collapse of the University (October 1989)
Professionalism, Purity, and Alienation
Bruce Wilshire - Author

"Make no mistake about it, this is a very powerful work. It is a brilliant and penetrating analysis of one of the most serious problems of our time, i.e., the University's loss of integrity and the consequent vulgarization of our intellectual life. It is a liberal response to Bloom, not just a dismissal." -- Philip L. Smith, The Ohio State University

"Bruce Wilshire's The Moral Collapse of the University: Professionalism, ...(Read More)
George S. Counts and Charles A. Beard
George S. Counts and Charles A. Beard (October 1989)
Collaborators for Change
Lawrence J. Dennis - Editor

"The book focuses on a crucial era in American education, and by limiting the scope of the book to the collaboration of two important figures the editor has provided the kind of insights that 'surveys' of the progressive education era are unable to provide. The vigor and passion of the subjects as well as the time come through in a most enjoyable way. The book is well written and a joy to read." -- E. Wayne Ross, State University of New York at Al...(Read More)
