What does Walter Mondale's career reveal about the dilemma of the modern Democtratic party and the crisis of postwar American liberalism? Steven M. Gillon 's answer is that Mondale's frustration as Jimmy Carter's vice president and his failure to unseat the immensely popular President Reagan in 1984 reveal the beleaguered state of a party torn apart by generational and ideological disputes. The Democrats' Dilemma begins with Mondale's early career in Minnesota politics, from his involvement with Hubert Humphrey to his election to the United States Senate in 1964. Like many liberals of his generation, Mondale traveled to Washington hopeful that government power could correct social wrongs. By 1968, urban unrest, a potent white backlash, and America's involvement in the Vietnam war dimmed much of his optimisim. In the years after 1972, as senator, as vice president, and as presidential candidate, Mondale self-conciously attempted to fill the void after the death of Robert Kennedy. Mondale attempted to create a new Democratic party by finding common ground between the party's competeing factions. Gillon contends that Mondale's failure to create that consensus underscored the deep divisions within the Democratic Party. Using previously classified documents, unpublished private papers, and dozens of interviews -including extensive conversations with Mondale himself- Gillon paints a vivid portrait of the innerworkings of the Carter administration. The Democrats' Dilemma captures Mondale's frustration as he attempted to mediate between the demands of liberals intent upon increased spending for social programs and the fiscal conservatism of a president unskilled in the art of congressional diplomacy. Gillon discloses the secret revelation that Mondale nearly resigned as vice president. Gillon also chronicles Mondale's sometimes stormy relationships with Jesse Jackson, Gary Hart, and Geraldine Ferraro. Eminently readable and a means of access to a major twentieth-century political figure, The Democrats' Dilemma is a fascinating look at the travail of American liberalism.

Jede Familie hat ihre Geheimnisse ... ... aber manchmal entwickelt das Verschweigen eine zerstörerische Kraft. In einer norwegischen Küstenstadt findet in einer nebligen Julinacht eine große Party statt. Jenny Brodal wird 75, und ihre Tochter Siri hat gegen den Willen ihrer Mutter ein Fest organisiert. Die weiße Holzvilla auf einer Anhöhe leuchtet in die Nacht, während die Gäste eintreffen und Jenny in ihrem Zimmer sitzt und nach zwanzigjähriger Abstinenz wieder zu trinken beginnt ... Wie jedes Jahr verbringen Siri, die in Oslo und an der Küste ein Restaurant führt, und ihr Mann Jon den Sommer hier, nur haben sie diesmal ein Kindermädchen für ihre beiden Töchter engagiert, weil Jon keine Zeit hat, sich um Liv und Alma zu kümmern: Er ist Schriftsteller und muss endlich sein überfälliges neues Buch abschließen. Mille, das Kindermädchen, ist 19 Jahre alt und hat vor, in diesem Sommer eine andere zu werden. Doch dann verschwindet Mille spurlos in dieser Nacht. Jeder aus der Familie hatte eine eigene Beziehung zu Mille, die er vor den anderen verbirgt. Ihr rätselhaftes Verschwinden rührt aber auch andere, tiefe Gefühle auf, nie vergessene Verletzungen, nie gelebte Sehnsüchte, Ängste und Unsicherheiten. Behutsam dringt Linn Ullmann in die Geschichte ihrer Figuren vor, trägt Schicht um Schicht der Fassade ab, bis wir ihnen so nahe kommen, dass wir verstehen, warum sie lügen und Alpträume haben, warum sie feige sind oder gemein. Sie bringt sie uns so nahe, dass wir uns selbst in ihnen erkennen.

The International Handbook of Educational Change is a state of the art collection of the most important ideas and evidence of educational change. The book brings together some of the most influential thinkers and writers on educational change. It deals with issues like educational innovation, reform, restructuring, culture-building, inspection, school-review, and change management. It asks why some people resist change and what their resistance means. It looks at how men and women, older teachers and younger teachers, experience change differently. It looks at the positive aspects of change but does not hesitate to raise uncomfortable questions about many aspects of educational change either. It looks critically and controversially at the social, economic, cultural and political forces that are driving educational change. School leaders, system administration, teacher leaders, consultants, facilitators, educational researchers, staff developers and change agents of all kinds will find this book an indispensable resource for guiding them to both classic and cutting-edge understandings of educational change, no other work provides as comprehensive coverage of the field of educational change.

Das Leben ist eine Baustelle: Nicht erst seit dem gleichnamigen Film hat die Baustelle als Metapher fA1/4r die Patchwork-LebensentwA1/4rfe unserer Gegenwart Konjunktur. Das PhAnomen Baustelle durchzieht unseren Alltag, bleibt aber mehrheitlich hinter BauzAunen verborgen. Dieser Band schaut hinter die Abschrankungen und stellt die Baustelle erstmals als solche in den Mittelpunkt: Durch kompetente Information und Reflexion aus verschiedenen, teils A1/4berraschenden Perspektiven wird die Baustelle als aussergewAhnlicher Ort in der Stadt und unter hohem Zeit- und Kostendruck funktionierenden Mikrokosmos dargestellt. Mit BeitrAgen zu einzelnen Baustellen, wie dem Megaprojekt Sihlcity in ZA1/4rich oder der Neuen Messe in Stuttgart, Interviews mit Architekten und Baumanagern, und eindrA1/4cklichem Bildmaterial springt das Buch in eine LA1/4cke der urbanen Landschaft. KA1/4nstlerisch-fotografische Interventionen wie diejenige Miklos Gaals, der fA1/4r seine Bilder bekannt ist, die stAdtische Szenen ins Spielzeughafte verkehren, runden die Publikation ab.
