?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{u2019}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{u2019}s education. The author also discusses the background behind Louis XIV{u2019}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

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)
