In the 1980s the Bureaucracy eliminated all knowledge of the past in the wake of a nuclear holocaust. In 2030 Andr?ervais discovers two metal boxes containing manuscripts, diaries, and other personal papers that have somehow survived and asks an old man, John Wellfleet, to use these documents to discover the past. In doing so, Wellfleet learns the truth about two relatives: his older cousin Timothy Wellfleet, a Montreal TV journalist at the time of the 1970 War Measures Act, and his stepfather, Conrad Dehmel, a German scholar struggling to keep his Jewish fianc?and himself safe from Hitler's Gestapo. Hugh MacLennan skillfully juxtaposes the insanity of life in Nazi Germany, the political climate of Montreal in the 1960s, and the perspective of an old man looking back on the conditions that led to world destruction as the background to an unforgettable love story.

While Johnny Olson is best known as the original announcer on CBS' The Price Is Right, he was a seminal figure in radio and television whose prolific career is woven into the fabric of broadcasting's history. Using Olson's own words and documentation of his career, as well as his personal remembrances of the birth of modern media, this book traces the development of radio and TV from their experimental roots, through their growth to America's most infl uential sociological force. From Marconi to Match Game, from the birth of the CBS, NBC, ABC and Mutual radio networks, through the rise and demise of DuMont television, and a glorious history of game shows, this is the story of American broadcasting as experienced by a respected and celebrated participant, Johnny Olson - one of TV's most recognizable voices, who enjoyed a 58-year career that intersected with the stars, shows, and events that are part of our cultural tapestry. Randy West tells this story from a unique perspective, having enjoyed Olson's personal mentoring through his own impressive career that included work at Olson's podium as announcer on The Price is Right. Randy shares Olson's personal photos and personal notes, as well as the stories his mentor shared over their 15 year friendship. This is a fresh and fun look at TV as you've never seen it! "Olson was Randy's mentor, and Randy has Olson's personal effects, old clippings, scripts and momentos collected during a 58-year career, as well as notes from Olson's planned autobiography. Those materials along with new interviews and research created an insider's look at the history of American broadcasting as lived by one of its better-known voices." - LARadio.com

Author: William S. Walker
Publisher: Dog Ear Publishing
The 1992-1995 war in Bosnia, the most violent chapter in the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, forced more than 2,000,000 people from their homes. Europe witnessed the greatest refugee crisis since the end of World War II and Germany became the primary refuge for Bosnians fleeing the fighting. "German and Bosnian Voices In A Time Of Crisis" is the story of what happened during those war years and afterwards when nearly 350,000 Bosnians came to Germany. The story is told with precision and eloquence by William Walker, a journalist with intimate knowledge of Germany, his home for more than 30 years, and the Balkan region, where he worked often during the last two decades. "German and Bosnian Voices In A Time Of Crisis" began as a doctoral dissertation in 2005 at the Seminar of East European History of Heidelberg University. The author, William Walker, was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree for this study of the refugees' time in Germany. The dissertation, which was the result of two years of interviews throughout Germany and the Balkans, was accepted with honors by the university in December 2009. In praising "German and Bosnian Voices" as an eloquently written, groundbreaking document, one of the university evaluators noted, "This work brings us closer to an understanding of the basic problem of German history in the 1990s. Above all it puts our focus on the victims of the history."

This is not a book for the faint- hearted. This topic effects every one of us whether we realize it or not- and it is one that the writer crafts with honor. It is an explosively heart-rendering "must read" that deals with the residuals of severe child abuse and the squalid monsters who commit such horrendous acts- monsters who hide among us all. Catherine's brutal honesty is commendably brave-She spares nothing in order to get her message across for her readers to get the full feeling of the story. With keen empathy and vibrancy, Catherine takes you on a journey of finalizing contingent and prevailing wisdom. The reader is taken into the lives and the sensations of such victims with specific ardor. Her handling of the topic sets the readers feet onto the very misbegotten path that these unfortunate people were unwillingly cast onto. And she does it with such openly harsh tact. She artfully commends all victims into their rightful place by giving validating insight into the makings of the deep scars and the mechanisms that protrude into their lives. Some might view this book as a type of thriller or horror tale by way of its purely raw depiction of a sincere truth. The horizon is drawn via a variety of delicately captured candidness. You will tingle and sensate from this depiction of human-ugliness at it's best. The words may rip through you, but you will undoubtedly reach a poignant climax by the travels you go on with her main character. Catherine has succeeded in outlining the nefarious nature that brings about the subject with colorful detail in this creative non-fiction novel. You will not be able to put it down.

A striking mosaic of memories, observations, and legends that together reveal the author's own story and a grand, compassionate vision of life itself In this kaleidoscope of reflections, renowned South American author Eduardo Galeano ranges widely, from childhood to love, music, plants, fear, indignity, and indignation. In the signal style of his bestselling and much-admired Memory of Fire trilogy—brief fragments that build steadily into an organic whole—Galeano offers a rich, wry history of his life and times that is both calmly philosophical and fiercely political. Beginning with blue algae, the earliest of life forms, these 333 vignettes alight on the Galeano family's immigration to Uruguay in the early twentieth century, the fate of love letters intercepted by a military dictatorship, abuses by the rich and powerful, the latest military outrages, and the author's own encounters with all manner of living matter, including generals, bums, dissidents, soccer stars, ducks, and trees. Out of these meditations emerges neither anger nor bitterness, but a celebration of a blessed life in a harsh world. Poetic and passionate, scathing and lyrical, delivered with Galeano's inimitable mix of gentle comedy and fierce moral judgment, Voices of Time is a deeply personal statement from a great and beloved writer.

School reform of one kind or another is a priority for education systems the world over. Yet the voices of students - those most affected by, and most pivotal to, the success or failure of any program of school reform - are rarely heard on this topic. This is the first book to look at school reform from the perspective of the students. The studies included in this collection focus on reform initiatives aimed at overcoming persistent patterns of racial, class and gender inequality. The authors combine the theoretical aspects of research with its practical applications, making this an invaluable resource for teacher educators, classroom practitioners, researchers and policymakers. Critical Voices in School Reform: Students Living Through Change is divided into two parts. Part one describes and analyses programs of reform that turned out contrary to the intentions of adult reformers, illustrating the - often unspoken - tension between adult and student perspectives on school change. Part two looks at reform initiatives that were able to harness student energies and thereby improve pupils' engagement with school life. These reforms, which are finely attuned to the needs and interests of students, offer clear, valuable guidance to those trying to create more equitable school experiences. A concluding chapter draws together the themes and insights gained from looking at school reform through a student-centred lens and offers suggestions for more relevant and lasting reform.

Frances DeWolf, wife of Seventh Cavalry surgeon James DeWolf, lay in bed alone on a frigid morning in 1875, listening to her husband’s activities in their military quarters—opening the parlor stove, tossing in logs, the metal-on-metal screech as he closed the stove door. She knew she should get up, but instead she curled under the warmth of heaped blankets and recalled their adventure so far. They had met in the Oregon wilderness where James was an enlisted hospital steward at an Army camp and she a teacher for ranchers’ children. She was 19 and he was 28 when they were married. In 1873, James applied for and was granted a transfer to a post near Boston so he could attend Harvard Medical School. But even with his Harvard degree, he wouldn’t leave the Army. So here they were in the middle of a frozen prairie. There were rumors that Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer would lead the cavalry in a campaign against roaming Indians next year. If true, she hoped her husband wouldn’t have to go off to fight as well. Voices in Our Souls, a historical novel based on fact, tells James and Fannie’s poignant story—one filled with joys and triumphs, regrets and sorrows, and above all else, enduring love.

Dissenting Voices in American Society: The Role of Judges, Lawyers, and Citizens explores the status of dissent in the work and lives of judges, lawyers, and citizens, and in our institutions and culture. It brings together under the lens of critical examination dissenting voices that are usually treated separately: the protester, the academic critic, the intellectual, and the dissenting judge. It examines the forms of dissent that institutions make possible and those that are discouraged or domesticated. This book also describes the kinds of stories that dissenting voices try to tell and the narrative tropes on which those stories depend. This book is the product of an integrated series of symposia at the University of Alabama School of Law. These symposia bring leading scholars into colloquy with faculty at the law school on subjects at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary inquiry in law.

"Politics, Time, Flying, and Voices " is a collection of four short stories that weave together routine circumstances and some ideas that may or may not be possible. Readers of a book like this might just find some surprises for each of the characters in each of the stories as follows: "The Political Campaign Amateur ": A politician is running for office who might have good ideas but cannot communicate them very well. The candidate is also prone to gaffes while speaking. He then receives unexpected help with improved campaign messaging. The help is in the form of articulate suggested speeches submitted by someone who is unexperienced with professional political campaign management or political speechwriting. "It's Just a Matter of Time": Two different people who live apart love their precious time together when they visit with each other. They also have similar frustrations regarding time or time management. Futuristic ideas such as flying cars, nanocomputers, and foglets might provide each of them hope for overcoming those frustrations. " Another Type of Transportation " What if one could travel from point A to point B regardless of distance without the hassles or expense of traditional flying or the limitations of airline schedules ? " The Ears and Eyes Above " Changes in direction that Harry pursued with his life seemed to cause him to see and hear deceased relatives or "the folks upstairs" conducting discussions about his activities and thoughts. And then it appeared that there was an unseen but ongoing video-taping process recording everything that Harry was doing and thinking.

A selection of papers presented at the Symposium on English Literature by Asian authors entitled Asian Voices in English held at The University of Hong Kong, 27-30 April 1990. Two kinds of writing experience are focused upon: one is the experience of post-colonial writers, who are re-appropriating the English language for their own cultural purposes. The other is the experience of immigrant writers, who bring an Asian view to bear on the culture of the English-speaking countries in which they live.

This volume represents the work of 12 authors, all of whom were or are working at the Department of Education at the University of Oslo. This volume aims to provide insights into the diversity of some of the research conducted during the last ten years in Norway, and to shed light on the diverse and broad field of education represented by various new voices from the Department. The contributions have in common that they represent what we can understand as Norwegian voices, at the same time they also show how Norwegian researchers are communicating with and contributing to the international field of educational research. The researchers contributing to this volume are all trained and skilled within a Norwegian tradition, and yet have a broad and international outlook. Norway is a country built on social democratic values, safely situated in one of the northern most corners of the world. During the last ten years or so, the national educational system has been challenged and adjusted to be compatible with international educational trends and expectations. This has brought Norway one step closer to more internationalized and globalized educational approaches, which is clearly shown in this volume. The major themes in this volume serve to highlight this trend with a focus on issues such as achievement goals, motivation and innovation, digital tools and technology in education and new ways of teaching and learning, which include a focus on issues concerning diversity and democracy. The editors and the authors have been collaborating since they first started out as PhD students roughly ten years ago. In this volume, the ambition is to bring together the expertise from this period, and to highlight the contribution to research conducted at the Institute. Elisabeth Bjørnestad lives and works in Oslo, where she is an Associate Professor in Teacher Education and Early Childhood Education and Care at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences. Janicke Heldal Stray is also working and living in Oslo, and is an Associate Professor at the Norwegian School of Theology.

The host of The Bob Edwards Show and Bob Edwards Weekend on Sirius XM Radio, Bob Edwards became the first radio personality with a large national audience to take his chances in the new field of satellite radio. The programs' mix of long-form interviews and news documentaries has won many prestigious awards. For thirty years, Louisville native Edwards was the voice of National Public Radio's daily newsmagazine programs, co-hosting All Things Considered before launching Morning Edition in 1979. These programs built NPR's national audience while also bringing Edwards to national prominence. In 2004, however, NPR announced that it would be finding a replacement for Edwards, inciting protests from tens of thousands of his fans and controversy among his listeners and fellow broadcasters. Today, Edwards continues to inform the American public with a voice known for its sincerity, intelligence, and wit. In A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio, Edwards recounts his career as one of the most important figures in modern broadcasting. He describes his road to success on the radio waves, from his early days knocking on station doors during college and working for American Forces Korea Network to his work at NPR and induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2004. Edwards tells the story of his exit from NPR and the launch of his new radio ventures on the XM Satellite Radio network. Throughout the book, his sharp observations about the people he interviewed and covered and the colleagues with whom he worked offer a window on forty years of American news and on the evolution of public journalism. A Voice in the Box is an insider's account of the world of American media and a fascinating, personal narrative from one of the most iconic personalities in radio history.
