Dangerous Counterstories in The Corporate Academy

"In Dangerous Counterstories in the Corporate Academy: Narrating for Understanding, Solidarity, Resistance, and Community in the Age of Neoliberalism, Daniels and Porfilio have collected thirteen critical narratives that offer a wide range of experiences, analyses, and ideas for how to work within and resist the corporate academy. The edited volume contains the insightful voices of students, scholars, and activists from multiple disciplines, organizations, and institutions across North America. Explaining the purpose of the volume, Daniels and Porfilio explain that "some scholars have found fissures amid the alienating, often hostile academic world to learn, grow, cope, and create socially generative and transformative communities. Until recently, however, their stories have not been captured" (viii). Thus, by collecting and sharing these narratives, the book acts as a resource for knowledge, encouragement, and hope for other students and scholars who are resisting the anti-critical forces that encroach on their work toward social justice." Dave Wolken Syracuse University Education Review

Trends and Issues in Distance Education 2nd Edition

"FROM E-LEARNING to m-learning and from Brazil to Mozambique, distance education comes in many shapes and sizes today. This diversity has advanced the field in many directions over the last decade, yet it has presented an important challenge for those who are considering distance education to improve performance. Namely, how do you keep up with the global trends and issues that are defining the next generation of distance education options?

The four editors of Trends and Issues in Distance Education recognized this challenge, and in response created a book that presents international distance education in a truly broad spectrum. This breadth is balanced with a writing style that illuminates practical applications that designers, developers, and other professionals can apply in a variety of contexts—including situations that do not cross international borders. The result is a very readable book that explores the theories, technologies, models, and approaches to distance education in its many forms, with a consistent focus on improving practice." Ryan Watkins George Washington University Performance Improvement, vol. 53, no. 1

Namhee Suk Northern Arizona University Reading in a Foreign Language

Participatory Evaluation Up Close

"With the possible exception of research on the influence of evaluation findings and processes, there is probably no broader body of work in the evaluation literature than research on participatory evaluation. Cousins and Chouinard have drawn on their years of experience in conducting research on participatory program evaluation, teaching about the topic, and conducting participatory studies to produce what they correctly describe as "certainly the most comprehensive review to date of the research on participatory and collaborative approaches to evaluation, and quite possibly of any other domain of interest in evaluation."" Paul R. Brandon University of Hawaii American Journal of Evaluation

Books, Not Bombs

"Books, not bombs: teaching peace since the dawn of the Republic is an invaluable and extremely comprehensive account of the evolution of peace education in the USA beginning with the Iroquois Federation and with Benjamin Rush’s 1793 proposal for a national peace office down to the current challenges to peace and peace education. It is a must for the education of teacher candidates and serving teachers, and should be a required text for courses on the history of peace, introductory peace studies, and classes in American social and cultural history. It is also extremely encouraging for peace activists who can now, by reading this book, look back on a long and distinguished line of predecessors. It demonstrates a building momentum for peace."
