A Review of Fifty Public University Honors Programs is the first-ever comprehensive evaluation of leading public university honors programs. The fifty honors colleges and programs are (1) within state universities that rank in the top 75 in the 2012 U.S. News rankings; (2) or within state universities that are members of the prestigious Association of American Universities; or (3) have already gained significant recognition as leaders in honors education.The book has 58 charts, including one that summarizes all the data for each program. The individual charts follow a narrative (900-1400 words) about each program. Other charts show comparisons of all 50 programs.Programs are evaluated for overall excellence and for honors-specific components, such as honors curriculum; prestigious awards (Rhodes, Truman, and Goldwater); retention and graduation rates; honors residence halls; study-abroad programs; and priority registration for honors students. Each program is also assessed for the value-added impact it has on the university as a whole--that is, does the honors program rank significantly higher than the university of which it is a part?In addition, programs are ranked according to the range of their minimum SAT/ACT and high school GPA entrance requirements. Another ranking group includes programs in schools that have a primary focus on engineering.University programs reviewed are Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Binghamton, Clemson, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Stony Brook, Texas A&M, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, University at Buffalo, UT Austin, Vermont, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Washington, Washington State, and Wisconsin.

In The Confederacy as a Revolutionary Experience (1970) and The Confederate Nation (1979), Emory Thomas redefined the field of Civil War history and reconceptualized the Confederacy as a unique entity fighting a war for survival. Inside the Confederate Nation honors his enormous contributions to the field with fresh interpretations of all aspects of Confederate life—nationalism and identity, family and gender, battlefront and home front, race, and postwar legacies and memories. Many of the volume's twenty essays focus on individuals, households, communities, and particular regions of the South, highlighting the sheer variety of circumstances southerners faced over the course of the war. Other chapters explore the public and private dilemmas faced by diplomats, policy makers, journalists, and soldiers within the new nation. All of the essays attempt to explain the place of southerners within the Confederacy, how they came to see themselves and others differently because of secession, and the disparities between their expectations and reality.

Blending the iconoclastic feminism of The Notorious RBG and the confident irreverence of Go the F**ck to Sleep, a brazen and empowering illustrated collection that celebrates inspirational badass women throughout history, based on the popular Tumblr blog. Well-behaved women seldom make history. Good thing these women are far from well behaved . . . Illustrated in a contemporary animation style, Rejected Princesses turns the ubiquitous "pretty pink princess" stereotype portrayed in movies, and on endless toys, books, and tutus on its head, paying homage instead to an awesome collection of strong, fierce, and yes, sometimes weird, women: warrior queens, soldiers, villains, spies, revolutionaries, and more who refused to behave and meekly accept their place. An entertaining mix of biography, imagery, and humor written in a fresh, young, and riotous voice, this thoroughly researched exploration salutes these awesome women drawn from both historical and fantastical realms, including real life, literature, mythology, and folklore. Each profile features an eye-catching image of both heroic and villainous women in command from across history and around the world, from a princess-cum-pirate in fifth century Denmark, to a rebel preacher in 1630s Boston, to a bloodthirsty Hungarian countess, and a former prostitute who commanded a fleet of more than 70,000 men on China’s seas.

Two overarching questions permeate the literature on universities and civic engagement: How does a university restructure its myriad activities, maintain its academic integrity, and have a transformative impact off campus? And, who ought to participate in the conversations that frame and guide both the internal restructuring process and the off-campus interactions? The perspective of this book, based on research and projects in the field, is that long-term, sustainable social and economic development requires strategies geared to the scientific, technical, cultural, and environmental aspects of development. Much of the work in this volume challenges traditional university practices. Universities tend to reproduce a culture that rejects direct interaction across traditional academic department boundaries and beyond the campus. Yet, interdisciplinary work is important because it more aptly mirrors what is taking place in the regional economy as firms collaborate across manufacturing boundaries and community organizations and neighbourhood groups work to solve common problems. What is distinctive within the range of scholarship and practice in this volume is the inclination on the part of increasing numbers of professors on more and more campuses to collaborate across disciplinary lines. Universities must persist in the advancement of cross-community, cross-firm, and cross-institutional learning. The learning dynamics and knowledge diffusion generated by collaborative activities and new approaches to teaching can invigorate all phases of learning at the university. In this way, the university advances its activities beyond an indiscriminate approach to development, maximizes the use of its resources, and performs an integrative and innovative role in the cultivation of equitable and sustainable regions. The chapters in this book illustrate the strikingly different and exciting ways in which universities pursue education for sustainability.

As a cognitive scientist she is intent on understanding the minds of animals who cannot say what they know or feel. This is a fresh look at the world of dogs -- from the dog's point of view. The book introduces the reader to the science of the dog -- their perceptual and cognitive Abilities -- and uses that introduction to draw a picture of what it might be like to bea dog. It answers questions no other dog book can -- such as: What is a dog's sense of time? Does she miss me? Want friends? Know when she's been bad? Horowitz's journey, and the insights she uncovered from studying her own dog, Pumpernickel, allowed her to understand her dog better, and appreciate her more through that understanding. The reader will be able to do the same with their own dog. This is not another dog training book. Instead, Inside of a Dogwill allow dog owners to look at their pets' behaviour in a different, and revealing light, enabling them to understand their dogs and enjoy their relationship even more.

In this book of 69 poems, divided into four chapters, I wanted to burrow deep into my soul, through a process of the self-examination of my masculine psyche, my political consciousness and world views--shaped and mortised by my almost two decades long confinement on Pennsylvania's Death Row. The reader is given a front seat on a fast-moving train fleeting through the disconcerted lives of the women in Afghanistan, Death Row, a misguided young black juvenile's dreams, a frustrated would-be actress driven to murder, a bi-racial teen's suicide, my own crack-addicted sister's tortured life--and the tragic events of September 11, 2001, which shocked the consciousness of the nation and the world. Inside My Head is not just another glimpse of the topography of my mind--but raw testimony for readers far beyond these prison walls.
