Mount Pleasant Book Excerpt:

A Silicon Valley entrepreneur takes on the challenge of a lifetime: teaching in one of California's toughest high schools. Entrepreneur Steve Poizner has run a billion dollar company, but the greatest challenge of his life was the year he spent teaching twelfth graders at San Jose's Mt. Pleasant High School. On many days, like the one when a student's boyfriend was arrested for bank robbery, his managerial and entrepreneurial skills seemed irrelevant. But on others, they helped him demonstrate how exciting it is to learn. Playing Jeopardy with the class and inviting speakers into the classroom, Poizner motivated his students by expanding their horizons far beyond their high school's walls. Poizner writes, "Often I came to ask myself one question: What exactly are you doing here? As it turns out, I was receiving one hell of an education." Mt Pleasant is ultimately a success story, as Poizner wins Rookie Teacher of the Year honors and, more important, ensures that all his students graduate.

In a book destined to become a classic, Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom present important new information about the positive changes that have been achieved and the measurable improvement in the lives of the majority of African-Americans.

Empty Saddles Book Excerpt:

Captain Morgan Trelawney's research into the mysterious disappearance of his great grandfather, the legendary Texas Ranger Zachariah Trelawney, who disappeared into Mexico one hundred years earlier, takes an unexpected turn when the mutilated bodies of an entire family are discovered at the old Blevins homestead. It looked like a drug related murder, but Morgan saw it differently, call it a gut feeling. So close to the Mexican border, with every law enforcement agency swarming all over. It just didn't make sense. Drawn into the dangerous world of Mexican drug dealers, events both personal and otherwise soon turn Morgan's case into a quest for retribution rather than justice. With the icy north wind whipping around his coat tails, Zachariah removed his hat and held it in front of him. As he stared down at the freshly dug mound of earth he uttered a silent prayer. He'd known the girl only briefly, yet somehow he felt a sense of guilt. Long Tom believed he'd done for them both, 'well he was wrong, and he was gonna pay!' thought the Ranger. Taking the reins of his horse he mounted and without looking back, rode off. Thus begins a chain of events that will lead finally to the foothills of the Sierra Madre and those Empty Saddles

Rhetoric and Reality on the U S Mexico Border Book Excerpt:

Stemming from four years of ethnographic research, media analysis of over 750 national news articles published in the 2010s, and decades of the author’s professional and personal immersion in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas, Rhetoric and Reality illuminates a place at the heart of our national conversation: the U.S.-Mexico border. K. Jill Fleuriet contrasts the rhetoric of national political and media discourse with that of local border leaders in economics, health care, politics, education, law enforcement, philanthropy, and activism. As she deconstructs the common narrative of a border in need of external intervention to control corruption, poverty, sickness, and violence, Fleuriet engagingly illustrates the range of regional organizing, local development strategies, and community responses in the borderlands that ultimately situate the Rio Grande Valley as the “true North” of the U.S. national compass—where the Valley goes, the rest of the country soon will follow. Rhetoric and Reality asks us to question our own assumptions, especially about those areas that drive national decisions about resource allocation, economic development and national security. “Rhetoric and Reality is an important ethnographic study of the deeply misunderstood, increasingly vilified, Rio Grande Valley located on the Texas-Mexico border. Fleuriet presents a balanced counter-narrative that that shows the region as one of growth, innovation, complexity, and rich with meaning. Rhetoric and Reality is an excellent example of place-based, reflexive scholarship appropriate for use in courses on border theory, applied anthropology, and research methods. Written clearly and crisply with a wide readership in mind, Rhetoric and Reality is mandatory reading for those wanting to better understand the US-Mexico border region and the people who live there.” --Margaret A. Graham, Professor and Chair, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, USA “This is an important book, as it describes life in the Rio Grande Valley rather than ‘on the border.’ The notion of ‘the border’ as an open range in need of external help is challenged, as the author illustrates the wide range of leadership and programmatic change occurring in the Rio Grande Valley.” --Roberto R. Alvarez, Professor Emeritus of Ethnic Studies, University of California, San Diego, USA
