1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giles, el niño-cabra, traducida por primera vez al español, es, junto a El plantador de tabaco, el otro ocho mil novelesco de John Barth y, para muchos, la mejor obra del autor. Concebida como una parodia del Ur-mito (inspirada en los trabajos de Otto Rank y Joseph Campbell) y una alegoría de la guerra fría en clave de novela de campus (Barth pasó gran parte de su vida en los pasillos de la universidad), Giles, el niño-cabra es una prodigiosa locura llena de humor, sabiduría y desencanto, un texto complejo y carnavalesco, ambicioso y divertido, donde lo mitológico, lo teológico, lo político, lo académico y lo caprino se (con)funden, también en el léxico. Así, el universo es una Universidad; el Juicio Final, el temido Examen Final que hay que Aprobar; y Giles, un joven criado entre cabras, el héroe destinado a convertirse en Gran Maestro o líder espiritual de la Facultad de New Tammany (trasunto de los EE. UU.) y del Campus Occidental, el único capaz de penetrar en el interior del ORDACO, un intrincado y monstruoso sistema que puede simular cualquier actividad humana (cálculo, impulso sexual, emociones...), y desprogramarlo. ¿Lo logrará? Carrera mesiánica en pos de la salvación y de las respuestas últimas, sátira que reescribe y amalgama el Nuevo Testamento, los mitos grecolatinos y mil cosas más, Giles, el niño-cabra fue publicada en 1966, el mismo año que vio la luz La subasta del lote 49 de Pynchon, y es todo un referente de la literatura posmoderna estadounidense

Strategies for Meeting High Standards Quality Management and the Baldrige Criteria in Education. Lessons from the States by John Barth( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document, one of a series of reports, focuses on the adoption of principles of quality management, originally developed by W. Edwards Deming, and the Baldrige Criteria for use in education. These processes and tools for systemic organizational management, when comprehensively applied, produce performance excellence and continuous improvement. They are now standard operating procedures for many of America's most successful companies. Educational systems that applied these techniques comprehensively and consistently have seen significant gains in student achievement, decreases in discipline problems, greater employee satisfaction, increased satisfaction and support from parents and communities, and reductions in administrative costs. The eight case studies in this report provide concrete evidence of the efficacy of quality management techniques when applied in education. For example, over 90 percent of all students in the Brazosport Independent School District, Texas, meet state standards and pass the state achievement tests. There are virtually no differences in performance between groups of children, regardless of race or economic background. The appendix contains authors' contact information, 'Air Cover' for Systemic Change--a transcribed interview with Robert T. Jones, and resources and information. (RT)
