This intelligence primer reflects the author's examination of dozens of unclassified government documents on the practice of intelligence over a period of nearly seven years. For the national security intelligence community, it presents a concise distillation and classification of the national intelligence functions. To the private sector, it offers an unprecedented translation into lay terms of national intelligence principles and their application within and potentially outside of government. Whereas "intelligences sharing" has traditionally been a government-to-government transaction, the environment is now receptive to government-private sector interaction.

The Practical Researcher by Dana S. Dunn translates the theory side of research methods into practice. Utilizing a hands on approach, Professor Dunn leads students through the process of developing and conducting research. In addition to learning about research theory, students learn the importance of reading, writing, and critiquing journal articles. As they work through the text, students are led to think beyond the given information and become critical consumers of the literature. The Practical Researcher, is both engaging and accessible. It includes step by step tables and figures in most chapters so that students can model examples for their own work. The importance of learning to write and to utilize the APA style of writing is emphasized throughout.

Any conception of staff development emerges from an understanding of teaching, schooling, and education. The way people define and think about staff development will be influenced inevitably by their philosophy of education: their values, beliefs, and their taken-forgranted assumptions about what is and what ought to be. Clearly, education theories, interpretations of research, and experiential considerations impinge on educators' ideas and actions. Thus, these three broad frameworks must be illuminated in order to examine staff development. This work explores these three major sources of conceptions of staff development: theory, research, and analytical reflection of educators' experiences. It offers fresh insights into teaching and schools as well as a broader and more powerful conception of staff development.

In this book, a teacher educator examines her practice as a way of learning about teaching as well as challenging teacher education. It is about how one teacher educator sought to transform the perspectives of her student teachers, in order to better prepare them to teach diverse populations of students, while challenging her own beliefs about how best to do that. The author seeks integrity in her practice, defined as her ability to enact what she teaches preservice teachers to do. In particular, this book is a self-study that contributes to understanding the broader question: How much can one affect and change the discourse within education when one also inhabits the characteristics that are privileged by the institution? The teacher education literature supports the need to study this type of self-reflection. Other researchers have pointed out that the role of teacher educators’ cultural identities in reforming education has been largely ignored in the literature. This book offers a unique perspective on the analogous relationship involved when a teacher educator teaches teachers how to examine the impact of their own identities on their teaching while examining that herself.
