Seit der epochalen »Geschichte der Kindheit« (1960) des französischen Historikers Philippe Ariès ist keine umfassende Geschichte der Kindheit mehr erschienen, die zu internationalen Debatten geführt hat. Dieser Sammelband gibt Impulse, sich heute wieder mit diesem spannenden Thema zu befassen und der Geschichtsvergessenheit innovative Sichtweisen entgegenzusetzen. Chronologisch geordnete Einzelbeiträge erzählen, auf der Grundlage epochenspezifischer Zuordnungen und eingebettet in sozialhistorische Zusammenhänge, eine Geschichte der Kindheit unter dem Aspekt der sorgenden Verhältnisse von der frühen Neuzeit bis heute. Was bedeutete es etwa, wenn die Sorge um das spirituelle Heil von Kindern im Vordergrund stand? Wie wurde Kindheit im 18. Jahrhundert zur Familienkindheit? Welche Veränderungen brachten wohlfahrtsstaatliche Regelungen mit sich und welche Implikationen hatte eine wissenschaftliche Sicht auf das Kind? Was wissen wir über Kinder im Holocaust und wie gestalten sich Sorgeverhältnisse in einer globalisierten Welt?

Our School

Searching for Community in the Era of Choice

Almost every major American city is experimenting with school choice, a deeply controversial idea that is dramatically reshaping public education. Will the wider array of school options help parents and educators identify better strategies for helping all children learn? Or will the high stakes of the marketplace end up privatizing this most public of institutions? Education activist Sam Chaltain believes that before we can answer these questions, we must put a human face on the modern landscape of teaching and learning. Our School documents a year in the life of two schools in the nation's capital, one a new charter school just opening its doors, the other a neighborhood school that first opened in 1924. Chaltain weaves together the observations and emotions of the people whose lives intersect there, and the triumphs and the challenges they experience. The result is an unsettling, complex portrayal of American public education. Our School is important reading for educational policymakers, administrators, parents, the media, and anyone who aspires to be a teacher.

In this first full-length biography of Benjamin Mays (1894-1984), Randal Maurice Jelks chronicles the life of the man Martin Luther King Jr. called his "spiritual and intellectual father." Dean of the Howard University School of Religion, president of Morehouse College, and mentor to influential black leaders, Mays had a profound impact on the education of the leadership of the black church and of a generation of activists, policymakers, and educators. Jelks argues that Mays's ability to connect the message of Christianity with the responsibility to challenge injustice prepared the black church for its pivotal role in the civil rights movement. From Mays's humble origins in Epworth, South Carolina, through his doctoral education, his work with institutions such as the National Urban League, the NAACP, and the national YMCA movement, and his significant career in academia, Jelks creates a rich portrait of the man, the teacher, and the scholar. Benjamin Elijah Mays, Schoolmaster of the Movement is a powerful portrayal of one man's faith, thought, and mentorship in bringing American apartheid to an end.

"A tale of grand dreams, shady politics, daring engineering experiments, greed, ambition, and westward expansion, Rails across the Mississippi is the first book-length history since 1881 to document the planning, financing, and construction of the first bridge across the Mississippi River at St. Louis, a national engineering landmark completed in 1874 that is now known as the Eads Bridge. Robert W. Jackson takes a fresh look at this monumental project, dispersing the myths and filling in the gaps left by earlier scholarship."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
