Adrienne Clay '97, co-editor
University of California Press, 2000
Acclaimed by Ebony magazine as "one of those rare publishing events that generate as much excitement in the cloistered confines of the academy as they do in the general public," this set of books chronicles one of the 20th century's most dynamic intellects. In Volume IV, King confronts the sudden demands of celebrity while trying to identify the next step in the burgeoning struggle for equality. The volume covers the years 1957 and 1958.
Patrice Franko (economics and international studies)
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., 1999
Franko provides the basic economic tools for understanding problems facing Latin America. She explores the contradictions of growth as it relates to overcoming problems of poverty, health and discrimination.

Turning Toward Philosophy
Literary Device and Dramatic Structure in Plato's Dialogues
Jill Gordon (philosophy)
Pennsylvania State University Press, 1999
We know Plato has had a profound impact on philosophical thought, but what is it about his dialogues-and their construction-that is compelling? Gordon shows how Plato's literary techniques engage readers in philosophy and attract them toward the philosophical life. Gordon builds a detailed analysis of literary devices on dramatic form, character development, irony and image making.
The Everything Get-A-Job Book
Steven Graber '90
Adams Media Corporation, 2000
Looking for your first, second or even 10th job? The Everything Get-A-Job Book shows how to write a successful résumé, how to handle stress, how to negotiate for better pay, how to look beyond the want-ads. Readers still may have to pound the pavement, but Graber can help them make better impressions with potential employers.
Visions of Voices: An anthology of poetry by genre
Mark Shovan '67, editor
Shovan, a teacher of English at Brooks School in North Andover, Mass., has produced a textbook intended to take the frustration out of reading poetry. Acknowledging that some high school students come to poetry with "negative preconceptions," Shovan has separated poems into categories according to voice and device. Interior monologue, letter narration, biography, memoir: these designations allow students and instructors alike to better listen to the voice of the poet.
