Chomsky on miseducation by Noam Chomsky( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Chomsky on MisEducation, Noam Chomsky builds a larger understanding of our educational needs, starting with the changing role of schools today, and then broadening our view toward new models of public education for citizenship. Chomsky weaves global technological change and the primacy of responsible media with the democratic role of schools and higher education. A truly democratic society, he argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education - formal and otherwise - is dramatically reformed." "Chomsky's critique of how our current educational system "miseducates" students - and his prescriptions for change - are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and anyone concerned about the future."--Jacket

Die Kinder-Uni : Forscher erklären die Rätsel der Welt by Ulrich Janssen( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gescheite Antworten auf Fragen, die auf der Zunge liegen: Das Buch ist ein Derivat der Kinder-Uni 2002 in Tübingen. Dabei behandelten echte Professoren Fragen von Kindern zwischen 7 und 12 Jahren. Die beiden Autoren haben sie aufgenommen und in Gesprächen mit den Fachleuten für eine schriftliche Darstellung bearbeitet. Die Warum-Fragen gehen aufs Ganze: Warum gibt es Arme und Reiche? Warum beten Muslime auf Teppichen? Warum lachen wir über Witze? Die Antworten sind fachkundig, differenziert, ausführlich, aber doch so überschauend, dass jedes Kind das Wesentliche begreifen kann. Die Texte verlangen allerdings Interesse und Ausdauer. Ihr Anspruchsniveau ist von aufgeweckten Kindern ab etwa 5. Klasse zu bewältigen. Die Bilder von Ensikat kommentieren die Ausführungen schön und bisweilen informativ. Ab 11 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer
The Enlightenment : a comparative social history, 1721-1794 by Thomas Munck( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Munck shows not only what the enlightenment meant for high society, but also for broader and only partially educated social groups. In short, this book is about the widespread diffusion of the enlightenment, demonstrating persuasively how much more the enlightenment was than the intellectual achievements of a few great individuals and a 'bourgeois' salon culture. In the process of emancipation in this period from inherited values and beliefs, the changes can be studied at least as fruitfully from the vantage point of more ordinary individuals."--Jacket

Pharaoh's people : scenes from life in Imperial Egypt by T. G. H James( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Popular interest in ancient Egypt has too often tended to focus on the deeds of rulers, great nobles and priests. In Pharaoh's People, T.G.H. James by contrast examines the daily working lives of ordinary Egyptians: bureaucrats and scribes; builders and farmers; carpenters and jewellers. What sort of houses did they live in and how were they furnished? How was justice administered? What do we know about their family relationships, about their rivalries and quarrels, their hopes and dreams and the daily minutiae of their lives? T.G.H. James has drawn on the evidence of paintings and inscriptions from tombs and temples, from official archives, private correspondence, accounts and dispatches. As he reveals the fascinating intricacies of daily life under the pharaohs, we realise how much our own lives have in common with those who worked along the Nile nearly four thousand years ago."--Jacket

Admiral Wilhelm Canaris was appointed by Hitler to head the Abwehr (the German secret service) eighteen months after the Nazis came to power.

In a riveting true story of intrigue and espionage, Richard Bassett reveals how Admiral Canaris 's secret work against the German leadership changed the course of World War II
