Brahmasamhara, Yogi
This is a book on meditation that takes people beyond where most other such books have taken them. It is a book of wisdom - wisdom for its understanding of human nature, wisdom for its answers to the unhappiness in modern life, and wisdom for the person-to-person way in which it is written. Among the numerous books written about meditation, this one jumps out - the author is a boy from the country who knows the modern way of life and its stresses and distresses first hand. The book is practical, easy to read and comprehensive. It is written in a warm, gentle, easy-to-follow manner. The author mixes the text with humorous stories about his Masters and drawn from his own life. 296pp.

Blau, Joseph L.
A reprint of the 1954 Bobbs-Merrill edition. History's first national party with roots in a mass electorate, the Jacksonian Democrats were not so much unified around a shared policy program as they were a patchwork of conflicting interests. They came together most vigorously in the name of what they opposed: the emerging financial and commercial monopolies, the old Washington dynasty, and any whiff of privilege or aristocracy. Yet they demonstrated how even unprincipled national parties could invigorate representative democracy and repair the growing rifts between Northern industrialists, the Old South, and the developing West. These texts show the Jacksonian movement as a cross-section of nineteenth century America. A picture of popular democracy in its infancy, they together form a study of unity in diversity. 383pp.

Russell, Josephine
This book examines moral responsiveness and thinking in a mixed gender class of primary school children, and offers a theoretical perspective on children's ability to think together about morality in a community of enquiry and on related issues of pedagogy. It tracks development in children's moral awareness, looking at gains and losses from middle to late childhood, and focuses on cognitive skills, notions of moral rectitude, and interpersonal relationships and friendship. The study demonstrates how, through participation in a community of enquiry such as 'Thinking Time - Philosophy with Children' (children sit in a circle, engaging in dialogue, with the teacher as facilitator), children become more thoughtful and develop respect and responsiveness as well as other traits of character that are central to democratic citizenship. The author analyses children's thinking in response to a wide range of content, on issues of justice, freedom and responsibility, rights and duties, inclusiveness, and friendship. Gender differences are also examined. With the increasing emphasis on education for citizenship in the school curriculum comes an awareness that 'children's voice' and 'agency' need to be respected and promoted. Social Personal and Health Education, Values Education, and Education for Citizenship are becoming more critical in an environment where there is a sense of crisis and concern about the fabric of democratic society. In presenting a new paradigm - research with rather than on children, entering into their life-world which their teacher shares - the author demonstrates the potential of children to reflect in a concerned way on issues that concern them and society as a whole. 239pp.
