The Privileged Poor

How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students Anthony Abraham Jack ★A n NPR Favorite Book of the Year ★C ritics’ Choice Book Award, American Educational Studies Association ★ Mirra Komarovsky Book Award ★ CEP–Mildred García Award for Exemplary Scholarship

“Eye-opening...Brings home the pain and reality of on-campus poverty and puts the blame squarely on elite institutions.” —Washington Post “Jack’s investigation redirects attention from the matter of access to the matter of inclusion...His book challenges universities to support the diversity they indulge in advertising.” —New Yorker “This book should be studied closely by anyone interested in improving diversity and inclusion in higher education and provides a moving call to action for us all.” —Raj Chetty, Harvard University 2 illus., 1 table 288 pp. $27.95 • £22.95 cloth 9780674976894

The Missing Course

Everything They Never Taught You about College Teaching David Gooblar ★A n Inside Higher Ed “Books to Give the Educator in Your Life for the Holidays” Selection

“Part education theory, part reflection on labor, part toolkit. Gooblar critically diagnoses how teaching gets done (or doesn’t) in modern colleges and universities, but he goes beyond critique, offering a series of activities, approaches, and strategies that instructors can implement. His wise and necessary book is a long defense of the idea that a university can be a site of the transformation of self and society.” —Los Angeles Review of Books “What a delight to read David Gooblar’s new book on teaching and learning. He wraps important insights into a story of discovery and adventure. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.” —Ken Bain, author of What the Best College Teachers Do 272 pp. $29.95 • £23.95 cloth 9780674984417

What’s Changed, and Why It Matters John L. Rudolph ★ A Times Higher Education Book of the Week ★ A Choice Outstanding Academic Title of the Year “Rudolph is...laser focused on the ‘how’ of the science classroom—how its practice varies across time, how its meaning is debated by reformers, and how its role in education shifts as schools themselves change. And for that discussion there is no better guide.” —Science 21 photos 320 pp. $35.00 • £25.95 cloth 9780674919341

You Can’t Say You Can’t Play Vivian Gussin Paley “Arresting in its title, magical in its appeal, and inspiring in its message...[It] illustrates how the teacher’s art can attack the evil of exclusion at its childhood root.” —Derrick Bell, New York Times Book Review “In instituting the [‘you can’t say you can’t play’] rule, Paley was challenging the assumption that cruelty in childhood is to be expected and that children should fend for themselves when it happens—notions she believes unfairly relieve adults of their duty to intervene. And she rejects the idea that children could benefit from such experiences.” —Theresa Defino, Washington Post 5 line illus. 144 pp. $22.00 • £17.95 paper 9780674965904

The Ambiguity of Play Brian Sutton-Smith “A wonderful and important book. Its strength is its depth and its breadth. Play is discussed in incredibly close detail, and from diverse perspectives: from anthropology to zoology, to literary criticism and biology. This work represents the one most thorough discussion of play that we have.” —Anthony Pellegrini, University of Georgia “A stunning book and a superbly scholarly undertaking which will make it impossible to discuss play in the simplistic terms we are accustomed to.” —Greta Fein, University of Maryland at College Park 1 table 288 pp. $45.00 • £36.95 paper 9780674005815
