Edited By Elliott, John
Teacher education and training in the UK is under attack from the New Right and government policy-makers have been sufficiently influenced by its ideas to threaten the very existence of higher education-based teacher training. The attack has been very much directed toward theory-based training which is accused of promoting progressive theories that are politically biased in favour of left-wing egalitarian ideology. The over all effect, it is argued, is a failure to raise standards. The New Right, aided and abetted by the tabloid press, wants to see the removal of teacher training from higher education, and for it to be unambiguously located in the schools, where it can be linked to the "theory-free" development of practical skills. Elliott and his contributors do not offer a defence of current practice, but do provide a rationale for the continuing role for higher education while at the same time moving toward a more experimentally-based professional preparation. They articulate in some detail that the practice of teaching is neither a matter of applying ideas derived from theory rather than experience, nor simply a matter of applying instrumental technical skills, learned on-the-job, to produce standardized and measurable end-products. Teaching is best viewed as a practical science in which the relationship between theory and practice is interactive. Practical skills are not simply technical in character, but structured by values and understandings of how to act consistently with them.Previous owner's signature on ffep.265pp.

Edited By Mishler,Craig and Simeone,William E.
One of Alaska's premier ethnographers, Robert A. McKennan (1903-1982) spent the years between 1929 and 1933 in several remote Native villages where he documented Interior Athabaskan life in a series of books and journals. McKennan's journals are an extraordinary window onto Athabaskan culture before it was radically transformed by social changes following World War II. While McKennan's two major ethnographies - on the Tanana and the Gwich'in (Kutchin) - represent the scientific aspects of his work, his voluminous letters and journals form an equally significant part of anthropology's humanistic tradition. McKennan chronicles his day-to-day struggles to survive in the Alaska wilderness, giving readers a fascinating personal memoir of a dedicated researcher and sensitive observer. Historic photographs, maps and a bibliography of McKennan's publications honour his legacy and highlighting his lasting contributions to Alaska Native history and anthropology. 266pp.

Stankiewicz, W. J.
This book gathers together a selection of the core materials from a lifetime of writing by one of the more eminent political philosophers of our time. Written in lucid prose, this volume can be appreciated by both the professional political scientist and the educated layman. The selections are arranged under (a) values such as liberty, equality, tolerance, justice, the common good; (b) concepts such as authority, sovereignty, the social contract and natural law; and (c) major political ideologies. The result is an extended commentary on today's crucial issues: social change, violence, coercion and political participation. For Stankiewicz, the main concern of political theory is to "establish principles relevant to the public good and to uphold the tradition of the public philosophy of civility". His writings show a remarkable assimilation of the classical body of political theory -- from Plato to Dewey -- the recognition of its tradition and beauty and of its historic role in human affairs. His neo-classical philosophy combats the ills of our society emanating from hedonistic liberalism, such as the pursuit of group rights, anti-authority stances, identity politics and the irrationalism of present-day political correctness. The volume contains numerous examples of his 'crossing swords' with thinkers of various persuasions, such as Leszek Kolakowski, C.B. Macpherson and Jacques Maritain. 543pp.
