`Richard Osborne has done something very special here. He takes us on an exciting journey into the knowledge required to exist, survive, thrive, in the new millennium, in an interconnected global space that includes cyberpunk and cyborg, chaos theory and conspiracy theories, the postcolonial and the diaspora, hybridity and whiteness, the postmodern and the post-feminist, the digital and the Net, as much as older yet still influential terms like Enlightenment, empiricism, positivism, aesthetics, agency, nationhood and citizenship. Osborne writes with wit, wisdom, and insight, always wary of any approach becoming an orthodoxy. He shows how particular concepts arise at particular times with particular authors and intellectual personalities. The entries proceed by illuminating examples, engaging anecdotes, subtle cross-referencing, wide historical contexts' - John Docker, author of Postmodernism and Popular Culture: A Cultural History Written by the author of the international bestseller Philosophy for Beginners, Megawords provides definitions for the key terms every student in the humanities and social sciences needs to know.

Social postmodernism and systematic theology can be considered the new pair in some of the most creative discussions on the future of theological method on a global scale. Both in the academy and in the public square, as well as in the manifold local and pastoral moments of ministry and community social activism, the social, the postmodern, and the theological intermingle in engaging and border-crossing ways. The Community of the Weak presents a new kind of jazzy fundamental theology with a postmodern touch, using jazz as a metaphor, writing ethnographically messy texts out of the personal windows of lived experiences, combining fragments of autobiography with theological reconstruction. A comparative perspective on North American and European developments in contemporary systematic theology serves as a hermeneutical horizon to juxtapose two continents in their very different contexts. The author proposes a systematic and fundamental theology that is more jazzy, global, and narrative, deeply embedded in pastoral ministry to tell its postmodern story.

What image of Latin America have North American fiction writers created, found, or echoed, and how has the prevailing discourse about the region shaped their work? How have their writings contributed to the discursive construction of our southern neighbors, and how has the literature undermined this construction and added layers of complexity that subvert any approach based on stereotypes? Combining American Studies, Canadian Studies, Latin American Studies, and Cultural Theory, Breinig relies on long scholarly experience to answer these and other questions. Hemispheric Imaginations, an ambitious interdisciplinary study of literary representations of Latin America as encounters with the other, is among the most extensive such studies to date. It will appeal to a broad range of scholars of American Studies.

WORDS, a decoding & spelling curriculum meant to supplement literature based & whole language instruction, is based on the premise that decoding & spelling instruction should be supported by a reflective understanding of the structure of English orthography grounded in the history of the language. The curriculum contains 5 units & 50 integrated decoding & spelling lessons based on word origin (Anglo-Saxon, Latin, & Greek) & word structure (letter-sound correspondences, syllable patterns, & morpheme patterns - roots, prefixes, & suffixes). Teachers provide direct instruction in problem-solving small group discussions. Students begin by reviewing & organizing letter-sound correspondences & then learn syllable & morpheme patterns useful for reading & spelling long, unfamiliar words. Students gain a technical vocabulary to talk about decoding concepts, & they also learn alternative strategies to analyze long, unfamiliar words. Both decoding & spelling achievement increase significantly based on research studies & teacher report. The book also includes a pre-test for word structure knowledge, unit quizzes, content area word lists, non-phonetic word list, & spelling rules. WORDS is designed for use in regular classrooms (grades 3-9) & in classes for learning handicapped students, grades 5-adult.
