Edited By Kaplan, E. Ann and Sprinker, Michael
On his death in October 1990, Louis Althusser remained one of the most controversial of the "master thinkers" to emerge from the Parisian intellectual scene of the 1960s. "The Althusserian Legacy" is a collective attempt to draw up a balance sheet, not on Althusser alone but on the questions that his work pushed to the forefront of Marxist theory. It brings together writing in history, philosophy, economics, sociology, and literary criticism, all of it deriving from or significantly inflected by Althusser. The volume contains an interview with Jacques Derrida, long-time friend and colleague of Althusser at the Ecole Normale in Paris, and concludes with two obituaries by Derrida and Gregory Elliott. The contributors include - Etienne Balibar, Alex Callinicos, Michele Barrett, Alain Lipietz and Gregory Elliott. 245pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine.

Woolnough, Brian E.
EX LIBRARY.One library stamp,adhesive label to base of spine.Science teaching in schools is often criticized, especially by older students, for being too prescribed, too impersonal, too lacking in opportunity for personal judgement and creativity. Science has become reduced to a series of small, apparently trivial activities and pieces of knowledge, unrelated to the world in which the students are growing up, and inhibiting to their developing personalities and aspirations. And yet, despite the pressures of national curriculum and examination syllabuses, science in schools can be, and often is, much more exciting and stimulating than that. This book celebrates such science teaching, and the qualities of the teachers who produce it, and argues that doing science should be a holistic not a reductionist activity, involving the affective as well as the cognitive aspects of a student's life. We should be concerned not only with what students know and can do, but also with whether they want to do it. Furthermore, Brian Woolnough argues that the best form of effective science teaching is through student research projects, in which students take a problem of personal concern to themselves and tackle it, worry at it, persevere in it and, meeting its challenges, produce their own solution. Such involvement in genuine scientific activity is, it is argued, not only possible in schools but essential if school science can do justice to our students and to the scientific enterprise itself.

Fraser, Jim
Mississippi is well known for its rich soil and plantation mansions, but the bluffs and prairies of its eastern boundary are often overlooked. Here, Jim Fraiser takes a deeper look at those historical gems of eastern Mississippi and its Coast. From Pascagoula to Tupelo, and Jackson too, the beauty of Mississippi's historic homes shines through Rick Guy's stunning photography. With each house pictured, readers learn interesting tidbits about the history of the home, the surrounding area, and the owners (or former owners). For those who love architecture, this book will be a wonderful addition to their collections. Several styles are covered, from the elegant Greek Revival of Waverly in West Point to the Colonial Revival style of Ballymere in Pass Christian. Spanning nearly one hundred years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, this book has everything. The fantastic images of authentic era refurbishing, interior settings, and antebellum designs portray the influence of the different cultures that collided in the South. From the first page to the last, excellent photography and enthusiastic writing combine to make this a smart selection.96pp.
