William Sloane Coffin, Jr. : a holy impatience by Warren Goldstein( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 2,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A magnet for controversy, the media, and followers, the Rev. William Sloane Coffin Jr. was the premier voice of northern religious liberalism for more than a quarter century, and a worthy heir to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. From his pulpits at Yale University and, later, New York City's Riverside Church, Coffin focused national attention on civil rights, the anti-Vietnam War movement, disarmament, and gay rights. This revealing biography - based on unparalleled access to family papers and candid interviews with Coffin, his colleagues, family, friends, lovers, and wives - tells for the first time the remarkable story of Coffin's life." "An army and CIA veteran before assuming the post of Yale University chaplain at the youthful age of 33, Coffin gained notoriety as leader of a dangerous Freedom Ride in 1961, as a defendant in the "Boston Five" trial of draft resisters in 1969, and as the preeminent voice of liberal religious dissent into the 1980s. This book encompasses Coffin's turbulent private life as well as his flamboyant, joyful public career, while dramatically illuminating the larger social movements that consumed his days and defined his times."--Jacket
Playing for keeps : a history of early baseball by Warren Goldstein( )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1850s organized baseball was a club-based fraternal sport thriving in the cultures of respectable artisans, clerks and shopkeepers, and middle-class sportsmen. Two decades later it had become an entertainment business run by owners and managers, depending on gate receipts and the increasingly disciplined labor of skilled-player employees. "Playing for Keeps" is an insightful, in-depth account of the game that became America's premier spectator sport for nearly a century. Reconstructing the culture and experience of early baseball through a careful reading of the sporting press, baseball guides, and the correspondence of the player-manager Harry Wright, Warren Goldstein discovers the origins of many modern controversies during the game's earliest decades. Emphasizing the game's simultaneous character as work and play, Goldstein is able to account for the origin and prevalence of baseball statistics, the failure of amateur baseball in the nineteenth century, and the emotional intensity of baseball's labor relations. -- From publisher's description
For the love of physics : from the end of the rainbow to the edge of time-- a journey through the wonders of physics by Walter H. G Lewin( Book )

32 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a largely autobiographical account of the author's life as one who fell in love first with physics and then with teaching physics to students. "You have changed my life" is a common refrain in the emails the author receives daily from fans who have been enthralled by his video lectures about the wonders of physics. "I walk with a new spring in my step and I look at life through physics colored eyes," wrote one such fan. When the lectures were made available online, he became an instant YouTube celebrity, and The New York Times declared, "Walter Lewin delivers his lectures with the panache of Julia Child bringing French cooking to amateurs and the zany theatricality of YouTube's greatest hits." For more than forty years as a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he honed his singular craft of making physics not only accessible but truly fun, whether putting his head in the path of a wrecking ball, supercharging himself with three hundred thousand volts of electricity, or demonstrating why the sky is blue and why clouds are white. Now, as Carl Sagan did for astronomy and Brian Green did for cosmology, the author takes readers on a journey in this book, opening our eyes as never before to the amazing beauty and power with which physics can reveal the hidden workings of the world all around us. "I introduce people to their own world," he writes, "the world they live in and are familiar with but don't approach like a physicist yet." Could it be true that we are shorter standing up than lying down? Why can we snorkel no deeper than about one foot below the surface? Why are the colors of a rainbow always in the same order, and would it be possible to put our hand out and touch one? Whether introducing why the air smells so fresh after a lightning storm, why we briefly lose (and gain) weight when we ride in an elevator, or what the big bang would have sounded like had anyone existed to hear it, he never ceases to surprise and delight with the extraordinary ability of physics to answer even the most elusive questions. Recounting his own exciting discoveries as a pioneer in the field of X-ray astronomy, arriving at MIT right at the start of an astonishing revolution in astronomy, he also brings to life the power of physics to reach into the vastness of space and unveil exotic uncharted territories, from the marvels of a supernova explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud to the unseeable depths of black holes. "For me," he writes, "physics is a way of seeing the spectacular and the mundane, the immense and the minute, as a beautiful, thrillingly interwoven whole." His ways of introducing us to the revelations of physics impart to us a new appreciation of the remarkable beauty and intricate harmonies of the forces that govern our lives

Time to learn : how a new school schedule is making smarter kids, happier parents, and safer neighborhoods by Christopher Gabrieli( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current school day - 6 hours and 180 days per year - is obsolete. It fails to provide students with the academic foundations and well-rounded education they need to succeed and thrive in the twenty-first century. The old school day is also out of step with the reality of working families without a stay-at-home parent to manage their children's after-school time. Using an additional one to two hours, the new school day reworks the schedule so that children can master core academic subjects, receive individualized instruction and tutoring, and be exposed to a broad array of topics such as the arts, music, drama, and sports. Time to Learn offers a compelling look at the expanded schedule of the new school day

A History of early baseball : playing for keeps : 1857-1876 by Warren Goldstein( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in readable, colorful prose, and exhaustively researched, the book traces key developments in the sport -- including the hot debates over particular rules of play; the emergence of 'revolvers,' players who moved from club to club in search of better salaries; the origin of uniforms, statistics, set schedules, and admission prices; the rise of the Cincinnati Red Stockings (hailed as the first 'all-professional' club); and the watershed founding of the National League in 1876. And there are familiar-sounding accounts of all-too-rowdy fans, intense club rivalries, and even organized baseball's first big betting scandal."--Page 3 of cover
