Dr. Sarason pulls no punches in this searing critique of American psychology and its current and historical disinterest in our schools. This book explains why psychology’s continued aloofness impoverishes the field and prevents it from capitalizing upon its potential to serve the public welfare. He describes how, after World War II, American psychology took steps to respond to societal needs but rebuffed efforts to include the improvement of schools. Bringing his discussion completely up-to-date, Dr. Sarason includes two extended chapters about the Columbine incident — why psychologists offered few conclusions concerning what those killings signified about schools in general and high schools in particular. He also criticizes test developers for their failure to seek and prevent school personnel from interpreting and using tests in ways that negatively affect students. As readers might expect, Dr. Sarason gets right to the heart of the matter in this powerful depiction of all that psychology can but declines to do for our schools.

Authors Shannon Hengen and Ashley Thomson have assembled a reference guide that covers all of the works written by the acclaimed Canadian author Margaret Atwood since 1988, including her novels Cat's Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, and the 2000 Booker Prize winner, The Blind Assassin. Rather than just including Atwood's books, this guide includes all of Atwood's works, including articles, short stories, letters, and individual poetry. Adaptations of Atwood's works are also included, as are some of her more public quotations. Secondary entries (i.e. interviews, scholarly resources, and reviews) are first sorted by type, and then arranged alphabetically by author, to allow greater ease of navigation. The individual chapters are organized chronologically, with each subdivided into seven categories: Atwood's Works, Adaptations, Quotations, Interviews, Scholarly Resources, Reviews of Atwood's Works, and Reviews of Adaptations of Atwood's Works. The book also includes a chapter entitled 'Atwood on the Web,' as well as extensive author and subject indexes. This new bibliography significantly enhances access to Atwood material, a feature that will be welcomed by university, public, and school librarians. Margaret Atwood: A Reference Guide 1988-2005 will appeal not only to Atwood scholars, but to students and fans of one of Canada's greatest writers.

Thomas Jerome Newton is an extraterrestrial from the planet Anthea, which has been devastated by a series of nuclear wars, and whose inhabitants are twice as intelligent as human beings. When he lands on Earth - in Kentucky, disguised as a human - it's with the intention of saving his own people from extinction. Newton patents some very advanced Anthean technology, which he uses to amass a fortune. He begins to build a spaceship to help the last 300 Antheans migrate to Earth. Meanwhile, Nathan Bryce, a chemistry professor in Iowa, is intrigued by some of the new products Newton's company brings to the market, and already suspects Newton of being an alien. As Bryce and the FBI close in, Newton finds his own clarity and sense of purpose diminishing.
In doing so , the " man from Mars ” technique is useful . In this exercise one simply imagines that a man from Mars has recently landed ( via spaceship ) and looks at things through the eyes of an alien space visitor .
