Siblings and autism : stories spanning generations and cultures by Debra Cumberland( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it like to grow up with a sibling on the autism spectrum? What kind of relationship do such siblings have? How does that relationship change as the siblings get older? In this collection of personal accounts, siblings from a variety of backgrounds, and in different circumstances, share their experiences of growing up with a brother or sister with autism. Despite their many differences, their stories show that certain things are common to the 'sibling experience': the emotional terrain of looking on or being overlooked; the confusion of accommodating resentment, love, and helplessness; and the yearning to connect across neurological difference
Cultural reformations : Lydia Maria Child and the literature of reform by Bruce Mills( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lydia Maria Child (1802-1880) wrote or edited more than fifty works between 1824 and 1878, including historical novels, domestic manuals, biographies of famous women, transcendental essays, and groundbreaking abolitionist texts. Her career was influenced by intimate ties to Boston Brahmin George Ticknor, abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison, Maria Chapman, and the Grimke sisters, and transcendentalists Margaret Fuller, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Convers Francis, Child's brother. Although her work has been overshadowed by more prominent contemporaries, such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Child has emerged as a figure central to any cultural analysis of antebellum America. In Cultural Reformations, Bruce Mills examines how Child, centrally connected to major literary and social reforms, strove to redefine cultural boundaries concerning race and gender."--BOOK JACKET. "By juxtaposing Child's representative works with such cultural documents of the period as private correspondence, sermons, and newspaper editorials, Mills contextualizes her key works as he advances a deeper understanding of Child herself and of a more tempered some of literary reform. Mills demonstrates how Child's writings reveal the cultural negotiations that fostered the sensational heroines of "sentimental" fiction as well as the ambiguity and indirectness of transcendental writing. What distinguishes Child's texts is their fresh look into a literary culture constructing myths of self-reliance while struggling with the issues of slavery and Indian removal. Her work reveals the contradictions inherent in elevating individualism while trying to promote more hopeful images of racially and ethnically diverse communities."--BOOK JACKET. "Cultural Reformations makes a significant contribution to the study of antebellum literature and culture. By tracing a pattern of literary reform that contrasts sharply with the jeremiads of Stowe or Garrison, Mills fosters a richer appreciation of the seeming indirectness of Child and, by implication, other such widely recognized transcendentalists as Emerson and Fuller."--Jacket

Theoretical introduction to programming by Bruce Mills( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there nothing more to programming? How can you develop your skill if all you do is hunt for the prescribed routine in a menu of 1001 others? Are you frustrated by the plethora of languages that ultimately do the same thing? Would you like your skills to give you lasting and intrinsic worth as an expert programmer, instead of going stale like last week's bread? Would you like to know more about the nature and limits of programming? Can code be written so that it is intrinsically robust? Written rapidly without sacrificing reliability? Written generically without iterative loops, without recursion, or even variables? This book shows you how. Densely packed with explicit techniques on each page, this book takes you from a rudimentary understanding of programming into the world of deep technical software development. It is demonstrated that most of the important features of modern languages are derived from deeper concepts that change much more slowly than computer languages. A small representative collection of languages (such as C, Java, Scheme, Prolog and Haskell) is used to show that paradigms are largely language independent. The effort of programming can occur separately, and then be molded in detail to fit the language at hand. Bruce Mills has been teaching and practicing programming in industry and academia for two decades. His experience covers the spectrum in languages and applications. He brings to this book his love of programming and a desire to encourage robust and yet creative engagement with computer languages
