Miami University : a personal history

vi, 222 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
Includes index.
"Miami University: a personal history incorporates the lectures on Miami history which have been given by a former president to large classes for many years. As a compliment to Walter Havighurst's narrative of The Miami Years -the primary source of university history every since the Sesquicentennial Year of 1959, when it was first published -the Shriver history is a personal account often with humorous asides, of a university rooted in the Western academic tradition, which bears an Indian tribal name native to southwestern Ohio. Though the Miami name also belongs to a university in southeastern Florida, it belonged first to a small college on the American Frontier (Old Miami) that developed into a major university in the nation's heartland (New Miami). 'The history of Miami University is finally a great American succes story,' says the Preface, 'and Phil Shriver as both President Emeritus and Professor of History is the right one to tell it in his inimitable way."--Inside dust jacket.

xvi, 206 pages ; 23 cm
"What every parent needs to know in order to pay cash for college. Most people believe that student loans are the only way to pay for college. That's why we have a $1.5 trillion student loan crisis in the US and over 40 million Americans are saddled with student loan debt. But there is another way. Debt Free Degree teaches parents how their kid can graduate from college without debt, even if they haven't saved for it. It also shows parents how to prepare their child for college, covering topics like what classes to take in high school, when to start testing, how to do college visits, and how to choose a major. Every parent wants the best for their child. Graduating from college without debt is not only possible-it positions both parents and students to win with money for life"-- Provided by publisher.

The assault on American excellence

October 9, 2019
Kronman, Anthony T., author.
272 pages ; 24 cm
"The former dean of Yale Law School surveys the full sweep of recent campus controversies to show how these disputes threaten the best of America's intellectual traditions--including democracy itself. In his tenure at Yale, Anthony Kronman has watched students march across campus to protest the names of buildings and seen colleagues resign over emails about Halloween costumes. He is no stranger to recent confrontations at American universities. But where many see only the suppression of free speech, the babying of students, and the drive to bury the imperfect parts of our history, Kronman recognizes in these on-campus clashes a threat to our democracy. As Kronman argues in The Assault on American Excellence, the founders of our nation learned over three centuries ago that in order for this country to have a robust democratic government, its citizens have to be trained to have tough skins, to make up their own minds, and to win arguments not on the basis of emotion but because their side is closer to the truth. In other words, to prepare people to choose good leaders, you need to turn them into smart fighters, people who can take hits and think clearly so they're not manipulated by demagogues. Kronman is the first to tie today's campus debates back to the history of American values, drawing on luminaries like Alexis de Tocqueville and John Adams to show how these modern controversies threaten the best of our intellectual traditions. His tone is warm and optimistic, that of a humanist and a lover of the humanities who is passionate about educating students capable of living up to the demands of a thriving democracy. Incisive and wise, The Assault on American Excellence makes the radical argument that to graduate as good citizens, college students have to be tested in a system that isn't wholly focused on being good to them"-- Provided by publisher.

If I don't make it, I love you : survivors in the aftermath of school shootings

September 13, 2019
xviii, 494 pages : color illustrations ; 24 cm
"A harrowing collection of sixty narratives--covering over fifty years of shootings in America--written by those most directly affected by school shootings: the survivors. "If I Don't Make It, I Love You," a text sent from inside a war zone. A text meant for Stacy Crescitelli, whose 15-year-old daughter, Sarah, was hiding in a closet fearing for her life in Parkland, Florida, in February of 2018, while a gunman sprayed her school with bullets, killing her friends, teachers, and coaches. This scene has become too familiar. We see the images, the children with trauma on their faces leaving their school in ropes, connected to one another with hands on shoulders, shaking, crying, and screaming. We mourn the dead. We bury children. We demand change. But we are met with inaction. So, we move forward, sadder and more jaded. But what about those who cannot move on? These are their stories. If I Don't Make It, I Love You collects more than sixty narratives from school shooting survivors, family members, and community leaders covering fifty years of shootings in America, from the 1966 UT-Austin Tower shooting through May 2018's Santa Fe shooting. Through this collection, editors Amye Archer and Loren Kleinman offer a vital contribution to the surging national dialogue on gun reform by elevating the voices of those most directly affected by school shootings: the survivors."--provided by publisher.
