Crucible of Struggle: A History of Mexican Americans from Colonial Times to the Present Era

by Zaragosa Vargas

Latinos in the U.S. are a major political, economic, and cultural force which is changing the national identity of this country. In fact, statistics show that by the year 2100, half of the United States population may be Latino. And two of every three of America's Latinos are Mexican. Mexicans are the oldest settelers of the United States, and they are also the nation's largest group of recent immigrant arrivals.

The Republic

by Plato Desmond Lee

Plato's The Republic is widely acknowledged as the cornerstone of Western philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the notion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it. During the conversation other questions are raised: what is goodness; what is reality; what is knowledge? The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the role of both women and men as "guardians" of the people. With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by "philosopher kings.

In Defense of Plural Marriage

by Ronald C. Den Otter

With over half of Americans now in favor of marriage equality, it is clear that societal norms of marriage are being quickly redefined. The growing belief that the state may not discriminate against gays and lesbians calls into question whether the state may limit other types of marital unions, including plural marriage. While much has been written about same-sex marriage, as of yet there has been no book-length legal treatment of unions among three or more individuals. The first major study on plural marriage and the law, In Defense of Plural Marriage begins to fill this lacuna in the scholarly literature. Ronald C. Den Otter shows how the constitutional arguments that support the option of plural marriage are stronger than those against. Ultimately, he proposes a new semi-contractual marital model that would provide legal recognition for a wide range of intimate relationships.

The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors: Practice and Research

by Melissa Ianetta Lauren Fitzgerald

The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors introduces two conversations to the tutor's preperation, one about the creation of knowledge in writing programs, the other about tutor research. This approach to tutor training provides several benefits. First, it allows tutors to test their theories of what might work in a writing center session and helps them to move professional conversation towards why such things happen. They bridge the theory-practice divide that often frustrates both novices and experiences tutors. By conducting research to answer such questions, tutors can help themselves, the writers with whom they work, their fellow tutors - and the writers with whom they work. And, further, this approach gives the reader new methods for appreciating and critiquing scholarly work, making it easier to understand the best ways to help writers and to move the field forward. As writing tutoring programs take on a variety of forms and pursue a range of missions, this book aims to create a flexible text whose contents can be easily rearranged to support a broad spectrum of reader needs. Each chapter, accordingly, can be read independently; the text does not rely on a sequential reading to create meaning. The book also includes intra-textual and extra-textual references for the reader who wants to inquire further. That is, throughout the book are references to material in other chapters that might be of interest to the reader intrigued by the topic at hand. So too, in each chapter, we include references to and citations of the scholarship that supports much of the "common knowledge" of the field, including, in the Handbook, both previous tutor education textbooks and research from the field. The aim is to aid the interested reader's inquiry into the scholarship of the field as well as to ground advice about practice in research that testifies to the effectiveness a range of tutoring practices. Much of the scholarship cited throughout the book is authored by undergraduate tutor-researchers as well as several former tutors who were graduate students when they published their articles. This crucial aspect best models the ways in which tutors themselves can bring together practice and research, in their day-to-day work and in their informed thinking about this work. Including tutor voices is an important tradition of the tutor education textbook because these are voices that speak to the issues concerning tutors in a range of institutions and programs across the country.
