MACBETH (ED: MOWAT)(RACK SIZE)

New/Used: Used
More Info
In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England. London was alive with an interest in all things Scottish, and Shakespeare turned to Scottish history for material. He found a spectacle of violence and stories of traitors advised by witches and wizards, echoing James's belief in a connection between treason and witchcraft.

In depicting a man who murders to become king, Macbeth teases us with huge questions. Is Macbeth tempted by fate, or by his or his wife's ambition? Why does their success turn to ashes?

Like other plays, Macbeth speaks to each generation. Its story was once seen as that of a hero who commits an evil act and pays an enormous price. Recently, it has been applied to nations that overreach themselves and to modern alienation. The line is blurred between Macbeth's evil and his opponents' good, and there are new attitudes toward both witchcraft and gender.

The authoritative edition of Macbeth from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:

-Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play
-Newly revised explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play
-Scene-by-scene plot summaries
-A key to the play's famous lines and phrases
-An introduction to reading Shakespeare's language
-An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play
-Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library's vast holdings of rare books
-An up-to-date annotated guide to further reading

Essay by Susan Snyder

The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world's largest collection of Shakespeare's printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe. In addition to exhibitions open to the public throughout the year, the Folger offers a full calendar of performances and programs. For more information, visit Folger.edu.

MAGICAL THINKING, FANTASTIC FILM, & THE ILLUSION OF NEOLIBERALISM

$70.00
New/Used: New
More Info

​This book analyzes how contemporary popular films with fantastic themes, including Candyman, Frozen, The Cabin in the Woods, and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, cultivate neoliberal subjectivities. These films promise dramatic change, but they too often deliver more of the same. Although proponents maintain the illusion that the militant enforcement of freemarket economics will resolve racism, climate change, and imperialism, their magical thinking actually fuels the crises. Magical Thinking, Fantastic Film, and the Illusions of Neoliberalism explores the ways in which the visual economies of Hollywood fantasy compliment this particular political economy.

More Info
Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

    Messy Grace

    New/Used: New
    More Info
    Sometimes, grace gets messy.

    Caleb Kaltenbach was raised by LGBT parents, marched in gay pride parades as a youngster, and experienced firsthand the hatred and bitterness of some Christians toward his family.

    But then Caleb surprised everyone, including himself, by becoming a Christian...and a pastor.

    Very few issues in Christianity are as divisive as the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church. As a pastor and as a person with beloved family members living a gay lifestyle, Caleb had to face this issue with courage and grace.

    Messy Grace shows us that Jesus's command to "love your neighbor as yourself" doesn't have an exception clause for a gay "neighbor"--or for that matter, any other "neighbor" we might find it hard to relate to. Jesus was able to love these people and yet still hold on to his beliefs. So can you. Even when it's messy.


    "Messy Grace is an important contribution to the conversation about sexual identity for churches and leaders. Caleb's story is surprising and unique, and he weaves it together compellingly. He states his views clearly, leaves room for disagreement, and champions love no matter where you are in this conversation."
    --Jud Wilhite, Sr. Pastor, Central Christian Church

    Moral Formation and the Virtuous Life (Ad Fontes: Early Christian Sources )

    $24.00
    New/Used: New
    More Info

    In Moral Formation and the Virtuous Life, volume editor Paul M. Blowers has translated and gathered several key texts from early Christian sources to explore the broad themes of moral conscience and ethics. Readers will gain a sense of how moral formation was part of a process sustained by pastoral instruction and admonition based on ritual practice (baptism, eucharist, and liturgy) as well as learned ethical behaviors related to moral issues, such as sexual ethics, marriage and celibacy, wealth and poverty, pagan entertainment, military service, and more. Moral Formation and the Virtuous Life is part of Ad Fontes: Early Christian Sources, a series designed to present ancient Christian texts essential to an understanding of Christian theology, ecclesiology, and practice. The books in the series will make the wealth of early Christian thought available to new generations of students of theology and provide a valuable resource for the Church. Developed in light of recent Patristic scholarship, the volumes will provide a representative sampling of theological contributions from both East and West.

    The series aims to provide volumes that are relevant for a variety of courses: from introduction to theology to classes on doctrine and the development of Christian thought. The goal of each volume is not to be exhaustive, but rather representative enough to denote for a non-specialist audience the multivalent character of early Christian thought, allowing readers to see how and why early Christian doctrine and practice developed the way it did.

    A revolutionary approach to poverty that takes human irrationality into account-and unlocks the mystery of making philanthropic spending really work.

    American individuals and institutions spent billions of dollars to ease global poverty and accomplished almost nothing. At last we have a realistic way forward. Presenting innovative and successful development interventions around the globe, Dean Karlan and Jacob Appel show how empirical analysis coupled with the latest thinking in behavioral economics can make a profound difference. From Kenya, where teenagers reduced their risk of contracting AIDS by having more unprotected sex with partners their own age, to Mexico, where giving kids a one-dollar deworming pill boosted school attendance better than paying their families to send them, More Than Good Intentions reveals how to invest those billions far more effectively and begin transforming the well-being of the world.

    Motor Learning and Development, Second Edition With Web Resource, provides a foundation for understanding how humans acquire and continue to hone their movement skills throughout the life span. These fundamentals will give students the tools they need to create, apply, and evaluate motor skill programs for learners and clients at all skill and development levels, from elite athletes to those with severe disabilities.

    The second edition maintains the unique focus of the original, covering the basics of motor learning and development simultaneously. The text has been revised and updated with current research and examples, and it includes the following enhancements:

    - Three new chapters, Understanding Movement Control, Infant Motor Development, and Devising a Plan, provide more depth on fundamental topics.

    - A web resource for students includes videos with guiding questions, lab activities for each chapter, and printable versions of the book's sidebars for use as assignments.

    - Reorganized content in part I allows for deeper understanding of complex topics.

    - Parts II and III are reorganized to group content by topic rather than by age group, in order to better infuse the two fields of motor learning and motor development.

    - Updated What Do You Think? and Try This sidebars engage students in applying concepts, and sample answers in the instructor guide help provide feedback on those applications.

    Motor Learning and Development, Second Edition, combines these two subdisciplines of motor behavior in an accessible and easy-to-follow manner. Part I provides an outline of the fundamental concepts of both motor learning and motor development. Part II explores movement patterns across the life span, from infancy to older adulthood, with a new chapter focusing on infant motor development. Part III examines the changing individual constraints throughout the life span, including physiological, psychological, and sociocultural factors and changes related to age. Finally, part IV prepares students to create and implement developmentally appropriate movement programs, closing with a new chapter, Devising a Plan.

    Learning aids throughout the book include chapter objectives, glossary terms, and supplemental activities to emphasize the evolution from research to practice. Revised opening vignettes in each chapter demonstrate the breadth of professions that utilize knowledge of and research in motor behavior. The significantly upgraded instructor ancillaries--an instructor guide, test package, and presentation package--are free to course adopters.

    Motor Learning and Development provides students with the fundamental understanding of movement skills that they need in order to develop, implement, and critically assess motor skill programs.

    Based on the latest research from the field, Motor Learning and Development explains how motor development affects motor learning and provides a framework for establishing programs that facilitate skill acquisition for all learners. This first-of-its-kind undergraduate text serves as a primary resource for integrating this broad range of material within a single course. Motor Learning and Development examines the development of movement skill in humans from infancy to older adulthood and how differing motor, cognitive, and social abilities affect when, why, and how an individual learns motor skills.

    Motor Learning and Development begins by providing a foundational understanding of the concepts in motor learning and motor development. Readers will discover the fundamental motor skills developed during childhood as well as the individual functional and structural constraints present in childhood and adolescence. Next, readers explore physical activity and movement in relationship to young, middle, and older adulthood (including the effects of significant life changes such as leaving home, entering the workforce, getting married, and having children) and the social and psychological changes associated with retirement and aging. A unique conclusion brings the text's concepts together to illustrate how to design developmentally appropriate programs for all types of learners.

    Building on the theoretical knowledge of previous chapters, readers will also learn how to prepare, develop, and implement developmentally appropriate movement programs. The text examines concepts such as these:

    -Structuring the learning environment to positively influence the physical, instructional, and affective factors in motor learning

    -Setting goals and introducing motor skills through the use of demonstrations, verbalizations, attention directing, and physical guidance

    -Designing and structuring effective practice sessions

    -Types of feedback and their functions as well as effective feedback scheduling

    Learning features in each chapter include an opening scenario, activity and lab suggestions, chapter summaries, and glossary terms. In addition, sidebars provide opportunities for readers to increase their understanding. Research Notes present accessible summaries of notable research in both fields, and Try This sections detail a simple task for students to perform during class or study. In addition, What Do You Think? questions promote critical thinking and encourage research-to-practice understanding of the material.

    When used as a course text, Motor Learning and Development includes a test package and image bank to assist instructors in combining these two large content areas into a single course. The image bank includes most of the figures, tables, and photos from the book as well as a blank PowerPoint template. Instructors can easily build their own tests and quizzes using multiple-choice, true-or-false, and short-answer questions found within the test package. These resources are available online and are free to course adopters.

    Motor Learning and Development provides an excellent framework for understanding both fields of study as well as the ways in which motor learning and motor development affect one another. By providing a thorough understanding of the factors that drive the development of motor skills throughout the life span, Motor Learning and Development assists future and current movement educators in teaching movement skills to learners at any age and skill level.

    This compelling and inspiring book, now in a deluxe paperback edition, shows how one person can work wonders. In Mountains Beyond Mountains, Pulitzer Prize--winning author Tracy Kidder tells the true story of a gifted man who loves the world and has set out to do all he can to cure it.

    In medical school, Paul Farmer found his life's calling: to cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. Kidder's magnificent account takes us from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia as Farmer changes minds and practices through his dedication to the philosophy that "the only real nation is humanity." At the heart of this book is the example of a life based on hope and on an understanding of the truth of the Haitian proverb "Beyond mountains there are mountains"-as you solve one problem, another problem presents itself, and so you go on and try to solve that one too.

    "Mountains Beyond Mountains unfolds with a force of gathering revelation," says Annie Dillard, and Jonathan Harr notes, "[Paul Farmer] wants to change the world. Certainly this luminous and powerful book will change the way you see it."
