Authorizing Readers: Resistance and Respect in the Teaching of Literature
Authorizing Readers: Resistance and Respect in the Teaching of Literature is a provocative conversation between co-authors that brings to life the symbiotic relationship between theory and practice. This unique collaboration between a literary critic/college professor (Peter J. Rabinowitz) and a high school English teacher/education professor (Michael W. Smith) provides readers with a rich discussion of a central paradox faced by literature teachers: Can teachers claim to have taught well if their students have not learned to recognize (and respect) the ways authors expect them to read? But at the same time, shouldn’t students be taught the critical skills of resisting both what authors expect and what teachers see as the right reading? Though each of the authors has a somewhat different view, Rabinowitz and Smith show that what they call "authorial reading" is not only compatible with, but even essential to, progressive teaching and truly engaged readers.

Tracking the Axis Enemy: The Triumph of Anglo-American Naval Intelligence
The 1942–1943 naval campaign against German U-boats known as the Battle of the Atlantic was a major victory not only for Allied warships but also for naval intelligence.

Selling Tradition: Appalachia and the Construction of an American Folk, 1930-1940
The first half of the twentieth century witnessed a growing interest in America's folk heritage, as Americans began to enthusiastically collect, present, market, and consume the nation's folk traditions. Examining one of this century's most prominent "folk revivals"--the reemergence of Southern Appalachian handicraft traditions in the 1930s--Jane Becker unravels the cultural politics that bound together a complex network of producers, reformers, government officials, industries, museums, urban markets, and consumers, all of whom helped to redefine Appalachian craft production in the context of a national cultural identity.

Dancin’ in the Kitchen
Dinner time is dancing time at Grandma's house. While chicken and dumplings simmer on the stove, all three generations of the family have a hard time keeping still, grooving to the music on the kitchen radio.

Lively verse and playful illustrations celebrate a family night to remember. More ...
Haunted Children: Rethinking Medication of Common Psychological Disorders
Arthur F. Roemmelt ‘65 provides a first-person account written in a refreshingly informal style, based upon case studies of the author’s patients, children with a variety of psychiatric disorders. The book is provocative both as a testimonial and as a eulogy to long and costly psychotherapy, a type of treatment “no longer desirable in a society that is adamant about cost effectiveness and armed with efficient medications.” It also warns that the increasing substitution of pharmacology for psychotherapy has negative as well as positive consequences. Dr. Roemmelt, a psychiatrist who practices in Syracuse, NY, argues with conviction and compassion that what troubles many children is more truly treated in therapy rather than, as a mere biochemical imbalance, by means of medication. More ...
