A toght clean copy, no markings throughout. This is the third edition of a biennial series aiming to present broad but concise analysis of major trends and policy issues in education in the world today. The underlying theme of the 1995 Report is education's contribution to human solidarity. The main focus is on educational opportunities for women and girls, which in virtually all countries have tended to be more limited than those for males. This basic imbalance in the upbringing of men and women has undoubtedly had consequences for the form and character of social cohesion in every society, affecting human solidarity at the fundamental level.

124 Valenzuela, Angela SUBTRACTIVE SCHOOLING: U.S.-MEXICAN YOUTH AND THE POLITICS OF CARING (SUNY SERIES, THE SOCIAL CONTEXT OF EDUCATION)
State University of New York 1999 0791443213 / 9780791443217 1st Edition Hardcover Fine /No DJ as Issued 
Subtractive Schooling provides a framework for understanding the patterns o f immigrant achievement and U.S.-born underachievement frequently noted in the literature and observed by the author in her ethnographic account of re gular-track youth attending a comprehensive, virtually all-Mexican, inner-c ity high school in Houston. Valenzuela argues that schools subtract resourc es from youth in two major ways: firstly by dismissing their definition of education and secondly, through assimilationist policies and practices that minimize their culture and language. A key consequence is the erosion of s tudents' social capital evident in the absence of academically-oriented net works among acculturated, U.S.-born youth.

125 Walker, C. B. F. CUNEIFORM (READING THE PAST)
University of California Pre 1987 0520061152 / 9780520061156 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The cuneiform writing system flourished in the Near East from before 3000 BC to AD 75. This book surveys the development of the script from the earliest pictographic signs to the latest astronomical tablets and the process by which it came to be used for writing many different Near Eastern languages. Sample texts show how the script is analysed into words and syllables and how to read the names of the most famous kings as they appear on monuments. In addition, extracts from contemporary Sumerian literature and school texts give an account of the training of the scribes, and the various types of inscription they wrote are illustrated. The decipherment of cuneiform is explained and-for the collector-some guidelines for the identification of fake inscriptions are given.

THE CAMBRIDGE COMPANION TO C. S. LEWIS, Ward, Michael (Editor)
127 Ward, Michael (Editor) THE CAMBRIDGE COMPANION TO C. S. LEWIS
Cambridge University Press 2010 0521711142 / 9780521711142 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. A distinguished academic, influential Christian apologist, and best-selling author of children's literature, C. S. Lewis is a controversial and enigmatic figure who continues to fascinate, fifty years after his death. This Companion is the first comprehensive single-volume study written by an international team of scholars to survey Lewis's career as a literary historian, popular theologian, and creative writer. Twenty-one expert voices from Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, and Wheaton, among many other places of learning, analyze Lewis's work from theological, philosophical, and literary perspectives. Some chapters consider his professional contribution to fields such as critical theory and intellectual history, while others assess his views on issues including moral knowledge, gender, prayer, war, love, suffering, and Scripture. The final chapters investigate his work as a writer of fiction and poetry. Original in its approach and unique in its scope, this Companion shows that C. S. Lewis was much more than merely the man behind Narnia.

THE DREAM OF AN ABSOLUTE LANGUAGE: EMANUEL SWEDENBORG AND FRENCH LITERARY C ULTURE, Wilkinson, Lynn R.
130 Wilkinson, Lynn R. THE DREAM OF AN ABSOLUTE LANGUAGE: EMANUEL SWEDENBORG AND FRENCH LITERARY C ULTURE
State University of New York 1996 0791429261 / 9780791429266 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Taking as its point of departure the two poems, Correspondances by Baudelaire and Les correspondances by Alphonse-Louis Constant, The Dream of an Absolute Language: Emanuel Swedenborg and French Literary Culture traces the reception and popularization of several key Swedenborgian doctrines in late-eighteenth- and nineteenth-century French literature and popular culture, notably the doctrine of correspondences. Contrary to what Michel Foucault argued in his early Les mots et les choses, in nineteenth-century France, the word correspondences does not denote a break with representation, at least as it was used by nineteenth-century French writers: rather it is intimately bound up with the taxonomic structures of natural history and also with the desire to understand the social world in terms of an ordered and controllable totality. Because it crops up in texts we now classify as canonical and also those outside the canon, and because it is so clearly related to notions of literary structure and effect, the word correspondences and its transformations in late-eighteenth- and nineteenth-century France offers a vantage point for discerning how artists and writers defined their work both within and against a context of cultures defined as elite, popular, and even ideological."
