Opus Majus Volumes 1 and 2 Book Excerpt:

The Opus Majus of Roger Bacon (c.1214-92) is one of the most influential scientific and philosophical texts of its age and arguably the high point of medieval knowledge of the physical sciences. In the work Bacon makes a plea for the reform of education, emphasizing the rightful role of the sciences in the university curriculum and the interdependence of the various disciplines. Prepared in 1267 at the request of Pope Clement IV, the treatise is a collection of ideas, an encyclopedia of knowledge embracing all science, including language, logic, optics, mathematics, moral philosophy, and physics.

Rampage Violence Narratives Book Excerpt:

Springfield. Columbine. Sandy Hook. Each school shooting in the United States is followed by a series of questions. Why does this happen? Who are the shooters? How can this be prevented? Along with parents, school officials, media outlets, and scholars, popular culture has also attempted to respond to these questions through a variety of fictional portrayals of rampage violence. Rampage Violence Narratives: What Fictional Accounts of Rampage Violence Say about the Future of America’s Youth offers a detailed look at the state of youth identity in American cultural representations of youth violence through an extended analysis of over forty primary sources of fictional narratives of urban and suburban/rural school violence. Representations of suburban and rural school shootings that are modeled after real-life events serve to shape popular understandings of the relationship between education and American identity, the liminal space between childhood and adulthood, and the centrality of white heterosexual masculinity to definitions of social and political success in the United States. Through a series of "case studies" that offer in-depth examinations of fictional depictions of school shootings in film and literature, it becomes clear that these stories are representative of a larger social narrative regarding the future of the United States. The continuing struggle to understand youth violence is part of an ongoing conversation about what it means to raise future citizens within a cultural moment that views youth through a lens of anxiety rather than optimism.

Delphi Complete Works of Joel Chandler Harris Illustrated Book Excerpt:

The American author and creator of the folk character Uncle Remus, Joel Chandler Harris produced a wide body of works, reflecting his life and interests in the Deep South. As a young journalist, he established a reputation as a brilliant humorist and writer of dialect. His Uncle Remus stories secured for Harris a place in American literature. The format was an instant success — a wise and genial old black man, Uncle Remus narrates tales of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and other animals to the son of a plantation owner, while interweaving his philosophy of the world about him. Harris’ later novels reveal his ability as a writer of ‘local color’, exploring important issues facing the South after its Reconstruction.

A Place in This World Book Excerpt:

Strong and willful, born into the peak of the social ladder in Birmingham, Alabama, Zoe Von Buexhoveden has always had everything she thought she wanted. Until she was involved in a drunken driving accident, and does not realize that more was involved than alcohol, and more people were to blame than herself. She still thought she had the perfect life, when a small slip of the tongue turns everything upside down and sends her on a wild chase for the truth. Winding her way through lies all around her, and interwoven with the stories of six Alabama teenagers through her tinted lens, Zoe steadily grows to know the true meaning of life and honesty.
