Out of the silent planet by C. S Lewis( Book )

3 editions published between 1938 and 2005 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first book of C.S. Lewis's legendary science fiction trilogy, Dr. Ransom is kidnapped and spirited by spaceship to the mysterious red planet of Malandra. He escapes and goes on the run, jeopardizing both his chances of ever returning to Earth and his very life. First published in 1943, this classic interplanetary fantasy continues to delight readers around the world. Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which Out of the Silent Planet is the first volume, stands alongside such works as Albert Camus's The Plague and George Orwell's 1984 as a timely parable that has become timeless, beloved by succeeding generations as much for the sheer wonder of its storytelling as for the significance of the moral concerns. For the trilogy's central figure, C.S. Lewis created perhaps the most memorable character of his career, the brilliant, clear-eyed, and fiercely brave philologist Dr. Elwin Ransom. Appropriately, Lewis modeled Dr. Ransom after his dear friend J.R.R. Tolkien, for in the scope of its imaginative achievement and the totality of its vision of not one but two imaginary worlds, the Space Trilogy is rivaled in this century only by Tolkien's trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Readers who fall in love with Lewis's fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia as children, unfailingly cherish his Space Trilogy as adults; it, too, brings to life strange and magical realms in which epic battles are fought between the forces of light and those of darkness. But in the many layers of its allegory, and the sophistication and piercing brilliance of its insights into the human condition, it occupies a place among the English language's most extraordinary works for any age, and for all time. Out of the Silent Planet introduces Dr. Ransom and chronicles his abduction by a megalomaniacal physicist and his accomplice via space ship to the planet Malacandra. The two men are in need of a human sacrifice and Dr. Ransom would seem to fit the bill. Dr. Ransom escapes upon landing, though, and goes on the run, a stranger in a land that, like Jonathan Swift's Lilliput, is enchanting in its difference from Earth and instructive in its similarity

Prison literacy : implications for program and assessment policy by Anabel P Newman( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States confronts the problem of a large and growing prison population, the majority of which is insufficiently literate. Added to the general effects of educational disability are the marginalizing factors of ethnicity, class, socioeconomic deprivation, and other handicaps. Historically, the situation in prison literacy is 150 years of reform attempts with uneven results, spotty application, and meager support. Despite increasing legal and social opinion in favor of inmates' greater rights to literacy and education, practice still lags far behind statute. Studies by U.S. and Canadian researchers reveal that the "right kind" of education in prison can reduce recidivism. The "right kind" of education is not premised on a penal mentality, but seeks to include moral education, democratic self-rule in the "just community," and instruction in the humanities, with a strong cognitive appeal, delivered by means of andragogical methods. An ideal program in prison literacy is one that educates inmates broadly, is governed for the sake of the learners, is cost effective, improves quality of life, and makes appropriate use of educational technology. Prison educators should critique current assessment and evaluation methods, undertake new and improved approaches, and establish improved standards. (Appendixes include a checklist of questions to analyze programmatic prison education, 84 endnotes, and 830 references.) (YLB)

?The Splendid Century,? penned by the brother of famous author C.S. Lewis (?Alice in Wonderland?), is a depiction of various aspects of life in France during the reign of Louis XIV, gleaned through the author's thorough research of records, correspondence, and journals of the time. Using anecdotal evidence, the book probes in detail various facets of life in France during this time, including the lives of nobles (particularly those at court) as well as commoners, religious institutions and conflicts, the organization of the French army and its restructuring, rural life and city life, what life was like on galley ships and passenger sailing ships, how doctors were trained, and the state of women's education. The author also discusses the background behind Louis XIV's policies, illustrating their impact on French civilization, both during this time and for generations to come. A must-read for anyone interested in French history
