Summary

Ezra Pound's 'Exultations' is a collection of poetry that showcases Pound's unique modernist style, combining traditional forms with experimental techniques. The poems in this book explore themes of beauty, nature, love, and the passage of time, all while pushing the boundaries of poetic language and structure. Pound's use of imagery and symbolism evokes both the classical past and the contemporary world, making 'Exultations' a truly timeless work of art. The collection is a must-read for anyone interested in modernist poetry and its evolution in the early 20th century. Ezra Pound, a pivotal figure in the modernist literary movement, was known for his controversial views and innovative approach to poetry. His background in classics and his deep interest in various cultures influenced his work, making him a leading voice in the literary avant-garde. 'Exultations' reflects Pound's dedication to pushing the boundaries of traditional poetry and his commitment to artistic experimentation. I highly recommend 'Exultations' to readers who appreciate bold and groundbreaking poetry. Pound's mastery of language and form, as demonstrated in this collection, will captivate and inspire poetry lovers of all backgrounds.

    “A serious attempt to understand a common phenomenon” from the author of The Nature of Human Intelligence (Psychology Today).   One need not look far to find breathtaking acts of stupidity committed by people who are smart, or even brilliant. The behavior of clever individuals—from presidents to prosecutors to professors—is at times so amazingly stupid as to seem inexplicable. Why do otherwise intelligent people think and behave in ways so stupid that they sometimes destroy their livelihoods or even their lives?   This is an investigation of psychological research to see what it can tell us about stupidity in everyday life. The contributors to the volume—scholars in various areas of human intelligence—present examples of people messing up their lives, and offer insights into the reasons for such behavior. From a variety of perspectives, the contributors discuss:   The nature and theory of stupidityHow stupidity contributes to stupid behaviorWhether stupidity is measurable.   While many millions of dollars are spent each year on intelligence research and testing to determine who has the ability to succeed, next to nothing is spent to determine who will make use of their intelligence and not squander it by behaving stupidly. The contributors focus on the neglected side of this discussion, reviewing the full range of theory and research on stupid behavior and analyzing what it tells us about how people can avoid stupidity and its devastating consequences.   “Marvelous, devilishly clever, and culturally timely book . . . A fascinating exploration.” —Choice   “Easily readable and well referenced . . . May provide just enough momentum for change.” —International Journal of Intelligence

    “Asks difficult questions and offers bold, provocative answers . . . These pages open our eyes to some of the most urgent problemss facing humanity. A must-read.” —Moisés Naím, author of The Revenge of Power   The free-market, limited-government development model has been an ecological and social disaster for the developing world. Sustainable and equitable development is only possible with the active involvement of a strong central state that can guide the economy, protect the environment, and prioritize meeting people’s basic needs.   In this sure-to-be-controversial book, Chandran Nair shows that the market-dominated model followed by the industrialized West is simply not scalable. The US alone, with less than five percent of the world population, consumes nearly a quarter of its resources. If Asian countries, where sixty percent of the world lives, follow the Western lead, the results will be calamitous.    Instead, Nair argues that development must be directed by a state that is willing and able to intervene in the economy. Corporations, which by design demand ever-expanding consumption, need to be directed toward meeting societal needs or otherwise restrained, not unleashed. Development has to be oriented towards the greatest good—clean drinking water for the many has to take precedence over swimming pools for the few. He provides three compelling case studies demonstrating the benefits of such strong state governance and the findings of weak state governance.   This will mean rethinking the meaning of concepts like “prosperity,” “freedom,” and “rights,” and whether democracy is always the best way to ensure responsive government—as Nair writes, “A democracy that cannot work to improve the life of its citizens is not better than a non-democracy that can actually improve quality of life.” Many people will find these to be challenging ideas, but what Nair offers is a model suited to the realities of the developing world, not the assumptions of the dominant culture.

    The summer of 1969 saw astronauts land on the moon for the first time and hippie hordes descend on Woodstock for a legendary music festival. For Neil M. Maher, the conjunction of these two era-defining events is not entirely coincidental. 
    With its lavishly funded mandate to send a man to the moon, Apollo became a litmus test in the 1960s culture wars. Many people believed it would reinvigorate a country that had lost its way, while for others it represented a colossal waste of resources needed to solve pressing problems at home. Yet Maher also discovers synergies between the space program and political movements of the era. Photographs of "Whole Earth" as a bright blue marble heightened environmental awareness, while NASA's space technology allowed scientists to track ecological changes globally. The space agency's exclusively male personnel sparked feminist debates about opportunities for women. Activists pressured NASA to apply its technical know-how to ending the Vietnam War and helping African Americans by reducing energy costs in urban housing projects. 
    Against a backdrop of Saturn V moonshots and Neil Armstrong's giant leap for mankind, Apollo in the Age of Aquarius brings the cultural politics of the space race back down to planet Earth.

    For success in school and life, students need more than proficiency in academic subjects and good scores on tests; those goals should form the floor, not the ceiling, of their education. Students need to develop attributes that aren't typically measured on standardized tests. In this lively, engaging book, educators will learn how to foster the "Formative Five" skills that today's students need, including● Empathy: learning to see the world through others' perspectives.● Self-control: cultivating the abilities to focus and delay self-gratification.● Integrity: recognizing right from wrong and practicing ethical behavior.● Embracing diversity: recognizing and appreciating human differences.● Grit: persevering in the face of challenge.When educators engage students in understanding and developing these five skills, they change mindsets and raise expectations for student learning. As an added benefit, they see significant improvements in school and classroom culture. The Formative Five will help teachers, principals, and anyone else who has a stake in education prepare their students—and themselves—for a future in which the only constant will be change.
