The History, Sea Life, and Environment of New York Harbor Revised Edition John Waldman “Nowadays it seems as if every hipster is celebrating the revival of New York’s once tortured waterfront. But it was John Waldman, a kind of cardiologist of the depths, who first plumbed the bottom of the harbor with his formidable intellectual stethoscope and pronounced the patient not quite dead. Full of humor and a picaresque joy in the almost absurd persistence of Gotham’s underwater ecosystems, Heartbeats should be read by every urbanite who dreams of a better relationship with nature.”—Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food 160 Pages, 38 b/w illustrations 978-0-8232-4985-5 Paper, $18.00, £13.99 eBook available

of Teaching in the Bronx Janet Grossbach Mayer “Janet Mayer’s book is a page-turner about real life in urban classrooms today.”—Diane Ravitch, New York University, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education “A timely and important book. Janet Mayer’s critical take on No Child Left Behind and the testing mania it’s brought into our schools is right on target and is badly needed. But it’s the stories of her students in the Bronx, whose gifts and talents were suppressed under the rigidity of the federal law—and the ways in which she tried to bring those gifts to life amidst the tough conditions almost all those children faced—that make this book so moving and so powerful.”—Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools 194 Pages 978-0-8232-3417-2 Paper, $16.95, £12.99 eBook available

The History, Sea Life, and Environment of New York Harbor Revised Edition John Waldman “Nowadays it seems as if every hipster is celebrating the revival of New York’s once tortured waterfront. But it was John Waldman, a kind of cardiologist of the depths, who first plumbed the bottom of the harbor with his formidable intellectual stethoscope and pronounced the patient not quite dead. Full of humor and a picaresque joy in the almost absurd persistence of Gotham’s underwater ecosystems, Heartbeats should be read by every urbanite who dreams of a better relationship with nature.”—Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food 160 Pages, 38 b/w illustrations 978-0-8232-4985-5 Paper, $18.00, £13.99 eBook available

Janet Mayer’s critical take on No Child Left Behind and the testing mania it’s brought into our schools is right on target and is badly needed.
