Looking for Farrakhan by Florence Hamlish Levinsohn( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Florence Levinsohn has written an unconvential biography. Starting from historical fact, her book is a meditation on the black experience in America that helped transform the young Eugene Walcott into Louis Farrakhan; on the circumstances that brought him to power as leader of the Nation of Islam; on the policies and programs of this curious but imposing organization; and, most of all, on Farrakhan himself."--Jacket

Planning for and implementing effective school desegregation : the role of teacher associations by Boyd Bosma( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an overview of events and issues in school desegregation that have significant impact on teachers and teacher associations. The displacement of black teachers as a result of desegregation prior to 1972 is assessed. Various court decisions in 1972-73 and the passage of the Emergency School Aid Act are cited as marking a turning point in the era of teacher displacement. Current policy and enforcement issues that affect the role of teachers and their associations in desegregation policy and planning at the local, state, and national levels are reviewed. Suggestions are also provided to assist teachers and teacher associations in more effectively planning for school desegregation. Areas covered include: (1) contracts, negotiations, and agreements; (2) faculty desegregation; and (3) inservice education. Organizational strategies are outlined regarding the assessment of desegregation needs, community relations, policy statements, utilization of technical information, and planning. The protection of teacher and student rights, the maintenance of quality education, and the provision of equal opportunity are discussed in relation to the implementation of school desegregation plans.

Belgrade : among the Serbs by Florence Hamlish Levinsohn( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The murderous war in Yugoslavia confounds the Western democracies and focuses the world's attention on the Serbs as children of darkness. "A valiant and warlike race," Churchill called the Serbs. Certainly their reputation for war has stuck. But for much of the world the Serbs are a mystery and a menace. Florence Levinsohn's Belgrade seriously and persuasively questions this reputation as well as the perception of Serbian guilt in the Balkan conflict. This stunning and clear-headed investigation by an accomplished independent journalist goes further than any other in explaining the war in Yugoslavia. Belgrade is also a vivid portrait of one of Europe's most intriguing cities - which since 1992 has been enduring a draconian United Nations embargo. Through a series of engrossing conversations with Serbian intellectuals in Belgrade, Serbia's capital, Ms. Levinsohn explores the causes of the war, the motives of its leading spirits, and the role of the Serbs as villains. She unpeels the many layers of confusion, despair, cynicism, anger, and yearning felt by Serbs living under a government they neither understand nor endorse, but feel hopeless to unseat. In an absorbing analysis of the Serbian national character, she finds a proud people involved in a war for which they have no sympathy and only long for an end. And she shows convincingly how the roots of the war lie in political exploitation of ethnic and religious hatreds. Cutting through myth and misinformation, Ms. Levinsohn finds enough guilt in the Yugoslav war to satisfy Serbs, Croatians, and Muslims alike - and a great measure of misdirected policy in the West. Her great achievement is to explain a puzzling people involved in the most brutal conflict to come out of the end of the cold war

In Defense of the Status Quo by Florence Hamlish Levinsohn( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In response to another paper that suggests scholarly publication may soon take nonprint forms, this discussion asserts that, because of the intimacy between the reader and the printed word, the traditional forms of expression in scholarly work will not be greatly altered. Although scholarly journals in education are largely responsible for presenting research and innovative ideas, it is noted that they are little read by practitioners in the subject fields they cover.
