I have not read much of Mohammed M. Zaki before, so I cannot contrast this book with those that came before it. I will say this it is unlikely to recede from my mind anytime soon.

The Character of Curriculum Studies Bildung Currere and the By William F. Pinar
This volume assembles essays addressing the recurring question of the ‘subject,’ understood both as human person and school subject, thereby elaborating the subjective and disciplinary character of curriculum studies. After examining scholarship on the ‘subject,’ Pinar critiques its absence in the new sociology of curriculum, its historically shifting presence in North European (and specifically German) conceptions of Bildung, in Pinar’s concept of currere, in Frantz Fanon’s theorizing of decolonization, and as the subject becomes reconstructed in the intercultural scholarship of Hongyu Wang and in Maxine Greene’s theorization of art as experience. Of interest to scholars not only in the US, this book will hold special significance for graduate students and junior scholars who want to know how to conduct curriculum research and development in a field informed by scholarship and theory in the humanities.
I found The Character of Curriculum Studies Bildung Currere and the to be very informative. I chose this book because I want to be as knowledgeable as possible on the subject of my What I might expect in the future.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. It was, quick read, with and just the right amount of romance.

Melancholy Experience in Literature of the Long Eighteenth By Allan Ingram
This book arises out of a major research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, on depression in the eighteenth century. It discusses the experience of depressive states both in terms of existing modes of thought and expression, and in terms of individual attempts to describe and live with suffering. Different chapters, each by an authority in the field, look at depression, or, in the terms of the time, melancholy, spleen and hypochondria, as it is reflected in medical writing, philosophical writing, poetry, in the novel and in autobiographical writing, this last based on material which is currently unpublished. The book concludes by comparing eighteenth-century medical practice with contemporary structures for treating the depressed, and by asking what present-day society can learn about depression and its treatment from the experience of this previous era.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. It was, quick read, with and just the right amount of romance.
I loved Melancholy Experience in Literature of the Long Eighteenth. Very moving story. Highly recommend this book to everyone. Written very well to read.

Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa

Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa By Kathryn Mathers
Travel, Humanitarianism, and Becoming American in Africa uses observations of American travelers to southern Africa to ask: why is Africa so important to Americans? These travel stories show how encounters with Africans lead to a problematic desire to save Africa. Kathryn Mathers argues that this is then seen as a way to resolve the tensions between aspirations for a globally responsible America and the current reality of its geopolitical role. This book draws fascinating new conclusions about the connections and disconnections on which contemporary American identity is formed.
I was so impressed with this novel. It is the best book I have read in years. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and I fell in love with all of the characters. I cried and laughed and really felt I could see through their eyes. I savored every page, and I totally recommend Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa.
I purchased Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa for an assignment in one of my courses. I love this book! It ended up being so much better than.

With the help of wide-ranging reception data, the work of Holocaust scholars, as well as cultural and legal reflections on the concept of guilt, Donahue elucidates not only these works, but the wider critical climate that has fostered their success.

Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their By William Collins Donahue
Good Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their. Made you think and examine your own reality. wrote the book with the intention of having you start to suspect what was really going on about halfway through. It really has the feeling of inevitability but you are so ensconced by the story and characters that you truly want to know for sure exactly what has happened. The book also ends in a satisfactory way, not dragging on but giving you solid closure at the same time. I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys

Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories

Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories By unknown
In the past decade, the field of memory has been dramatically reconfigured. Global conditions have powerfully impacted on memory debates, and at the same time, claims to memory are negotiated globally. This is a fundamental shift, as until recently, the dynamics of memory production unfolded primarily within the bounds of the nation-state; coming to terms with the past was largely a national project. Under the impact of processes of globalization, this has changed fundamentally. Today it has become impossible to understand the trajectories of memory outside a global frame of reference. This book offers an innovative inroad into the various problematics of memory in a global age. It presents analytical categories to chart the terrain, and it supplies richly documented case studies that illustrate the complexities of contemporary ways of appropriating the past. Written from different cultural positions and from different disciplinary backgrounds, the collection of essays emphasizes the positionality of memory production as it is negotiated locally and globally.
Since picking up Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories, I can’t seem to stop reading it!…I love her style of writing and more importantly you will identify with her struggle. I would recommend this book to all.
I highly recommend Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories. All in a good book not regretting having read it.
