"That feeling of becoming a new person in a different place, even if it's an illusion, is intoxicating to me, and always has been. I love writing about places, but only places where I don't belong."James Arthur
Awakening is the theme of this fiery debut about the "ghost world" of shadows and personae. A sense of history, politics, and place is an integrated and integral part of the whole, alive with stirring accounts of travel, intimate moments of solitude, and encounters with the ineffable. Romantic in spirit and contemporary in outlook, James Arthur writes exciting, rhythmical, elastic poems.
"Charms against Lightning"
Against meningitis and poisoned milk,
flash floods and heartwreck, against daydreams
Against losing your fingers, drinking detergent,
earthquakes, baldness, divorce, against
falling in love with a child
Against lupus and lawsuits, lying stranded between nations,
against secrets and frostbite, the burring of trains
that never arrive
Against songlessness, your mother's depression,
the death of the cedars, Siberian crane
Against these talismans against lightning;
the shutters swing, and clack their yellow teeth;
the deep sky welters and the windows quiver
James Arthur's poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and Narrative. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, and raised in Toronto, Ontario, he earned degrees from the University of Toronto, the University of New Brunswick, and the University of Washington. He is a recent recipient of the Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University and lives in Princeton, New Jersey.

The establishment of citizenship education as a compulsory subject has recently been accompanied by the government's policy of 'promoting education with character.' Schools are identified as having a crucial role to play in helping to shape and reinforce basic character traits that will ultimately lead to a better society. This radical new policy is explicitly linked to raising academic standards and to the needs of the emerging new economy. This book provides an introduction to character education within the British context by exploring its meanings, understandings, and rationale, through the perspective of a number of academic disciplines. The author examines character education from a philosophical, religious, psychological, political, social and economic perspective to offer a more detailed understanding of character education and what it can offer. He also considers how British schools can implement character education successfully and what lessons we can draw from the American experience. This book will be of interest to academics, researchers, policy makers and teachers with responsibility for citizenship education in their schools.

Within the Langlands program, endoscopy is a fundamental process for relating automorphic representations of one group with those of another. In this book, Arthur establishes an endoscopic classification of automorphic representations of orthogonal and symplectic groups G. The representations are shown to occur in families (known as global L-packets and A-packets), which are parametrized by certain self-dual automorphic representations of an associated general linear group GL(N). The central result is a simple and explicit formula for the multiplicity in the automorphic discrete spectrum of G for any representation in a family. The results of the volume have already had significant applications: to the local Langlands correspondence, the construction of unitary representations, the existence of Whittaker models, the analytic behaviour of Langlands L-functions, the spectral theory of certain locally symmetric spaces, and to new phenomena for symplectic epsilon-factors. One can expect many more. In fact, it is likely that both the results and the techniques of the volume will have applications to almost all sides of the Langlands program. The methods are by comparison of the trace formula of G with its stabilization (and a comparison of the twisted trace formula of GL(N) with its stabilization, which is part of work in progress by Moeglin and Waldspurger). This approach is quite different from methods that are based on L-functions, converse theorems, or the theta correspondence. The comparison of trace formulas in the volume ought to be applicable to a much larger class of groups. Any extension at all will have further important implications for the Langlands program.

› Find signed collectible books: 'History Teachers in the Making'
How can experienced history teachers help both beginning teachers and other members of the history department to develop and improve their practice? How do history departments improve and develop? What is distinctive about history teaching and learning? Recent research has placed emphasis on both the continuum of teacher learning from initial training to continuing professional development and the importance of subject knowledge in classroom effectiveness. This innovative book draws these issues together: it examines the nature of professional learning throughout teaching careers, grounded in the culture, research and practice of one school subject. It begins by examining history student teacher learning, focusing on practical strategies for school based mentoring in history. The second section examines the nature of history teacher development in the first year of teaching whilst the third links individual and department development explicitly to classroom effectiveness. Throughout, the book draws on practical classroom experience and recent research, providing both specific case study examples and generalisable arguments.

For thousands of years, humanity has been involved in a symbiotic relationship with plants. Not only have plants supplied mankind with a never-ending food source, but have also served us in another way. This book uncovers the natural link between man, consciousness, and God. This discovery may at first seem abstract, wishful thinking, or even impossible; yet as evidence presented on these pages unfolds, one may find that its understanding does not require as much of a leap of faith as first thought. The author believes this to be the most significant discovery in the entire field of religious knowledge ever to happen in the history of mankind. Should people explore this knowledge, it may allow many to put aside their differences, and join in the understanding that each and every one of us may now experience that which has been, until this time, hidden away in the recesses of our spiritual history. According to the author, we may at last be able to open ourselves to an entirely new and valuable consciousness.

This volume constitutes the proceedings of a conference, "On Certain $L$-functions", held July 23-27, 2007 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. The conference was organized in honor of the 60th birthday of Freydoon Shahidi, widely recognized as having made groundbreaking contributions to the Langlands program. The articles in this volume represent a snapshot of the state of the field from several viewpoints. Contributions illuminate various areas of the study of geometric, analytic, and number theoretic aspects of automorphic forms and their $L$-functions, and both local and global theory are addressed. Topics discussed in the articles include Langlands functoriality, the Rankin-Selberg method, the Langlands-Shahidi method, motivic Galois groups, Shimura varieties, orbital integrals, representations of $p$-adic groups, Plancherel formula and its consequences, the Gross-Prasad conjecture, and more. The volume also includes an expository article on Shahidi's contributions to the field, which serves as an introduction to the subject. Experts will find this book a useful reference, and beginning researchers will be able to use it to survey major results in the Langlands program. Titles in this series are co-published with the Clay Mathematics Institute (Cambridge, MA).

The representation theory of real reductive groups is still incomplete, in spite of much progress made thus far. The papers in this volume were presented at the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference ``Representation Theory of Real Reductive Lie Groups'' held in Snowbird, Utah in June 2006, with the aim of elucidating the problems that remain, as well as explaining what tools have recently become available to solve them. They represent a significant improvement in the exposition of some of the most important (and often least accessible) aspects of the literature. This volume will be of interest to graduate students working in the harmonic analysis and representation theory of Lie groups. It will also appeal to experts working in closely related fields.

A general principle, discovered by Robert Langlands and named by him the "functoriality principle," predicts relations between automorphic forms on arithmetic subgroups of different reductive groups. Langlands functoriality relates the eigenvalues of Hecke operators acting on the automorphic forms on two groups (or the local factors of the "automorphic representations" generated by them). In the few instances where such relations have been probed, they have led to deep arithmetic consequences.
This book studies one of the simplest general problems in the theory, that of relating automorphic forms on arithmetic subgroups of GL(n,E) and GL(n,F) when E/F is a cyclic extension of number fields. (This is known as the base change problem for GL(n).) The problem is attacked and solved by means of the trace formula. The book relies on deep and technical results obtained by several authors during the last twenty years. It could not serve as an introduction to them, but, by giving complete references to the published literature, the authors have made the work useful to a reader who does not know all the aspects of the theory of automorphic forms.

Student teachers have always worked with professionals during their teaching practice, but as teacher training becomes more school based, the role of the mentor has become much more important. Even newer is the emergence of the subject mentor.
This book is an examination of the nature of effective mentoring and its contribution to student teacher development. Part One of the book has a broad perspective and looks at policy developments and the differing approaches to teacher education. Part Two explores central issues which have emerged in the author's research with mentors. It identifies tendencies in subject mentoring which characterise the work of subject mentors in schools, and key aspects of mentoring are examined, such as collaborative teaching, observation and the practice of discursive mentoring.

Wee Blind Mice reveals the blatant inconsistencies that abound in modern KJV based translations of the Bible. Most believers are unaware that Catholic-trained translators were responsible for our present-day versions of the scriptures and that they used poetic license, literally adding to and deleting words and sometimes complete phrases that they considered problematic (inconsistent with Catholic dogma) from the original Texts. The version that resulted from their tinkering has had the effect of misleading millions of people to unwittingly follow the Anti-Christ and voluntarily take the Mark of the Beast in their foreheads and upon their hands. The Author takes readers through a step-by-step, point-by-point tour of the Holy Scriptures, juxtaposing the KJV errors with the correct meaning intended by the Prophets writings. Many popular misconceptions are explained with scriptural evidence to support the conclusions presented. The scriptural interpretations presented herein are not merely the Authors own opinions but rather represent countless hours of critical research by Hebrew scholars at The House of Yahweh and brought forth by Yahwehs last days witness, Yisrayl Hawkins. It is no wonder, the Author surmises, that our world is experiencing the catastrophic problems of wars, financial collapse, sickness and diseases, weather anomalies, earthquakes and social unrest. There is a simple explanation for our accumulated miseries and there is an equally simple remedy for eliminating them. After reading Wee Blind Mice and removing the blinders, the solution will be obvious. Readers will be astounded to see how Centuries of religious malfeasance has allowed misinformed teachers to deceive so many people so effectively and brought us to our present conundrum. Ironically it was all foretold in the very book most believers attest to follow but have never understood. There are currently over two-billion permanent job openings available for both men and women in Yahwehs everlasting government. To qualify for one of these jobs, extensive training is required. This training is available only at Yahwehs House. There are no churches or other religious venues that can correctly teach you this information. They simply do not know it. Unlike expensive schools of higher learning in this world, the training you receive at Yahwehs House costs you nothing in terms of money. When your training is completed you will not be burdened with a huge debt as with colleges and universities. You will however be qualified and fully prepared for an eternal life of service to your fellow man as well as all of Yahwehs endless creation. Wee Blind Mice is available in Paperback, and in Kindle format for a considerably lower cost. Dont pass up this opportunity to remove the deceptions you have been taught and learn the truth that they didnt teach you in church!
