From the author: "This book is about educational reform. It is not primarily concerned with the particular improvement that can take place in an individual classroom or school.

The End of Economic Growth: What Does It Mean for American Society?
by Seymour ItzkoffPrice: $39.952009 0-7734-4668-0
This work examines the intersection between economics and social philosophy. It takes its impetus from the economic events of 2008-2009 which deeply affected the destiny of both the United States and the rest of the world. While the political establishment of most of the major powers see the ensuing economic recession as a particulate event soon to be overcome, many thinkers view what has transpired both economically and socially as a major break in the optimistic growth vision of a world civilization, given the regnant political, social, and, most important, ideological perspectives for the future of humankind.Price: $199.952009 0-7734-5056-4
The unanticipated arrival of peak energy production will cause the greatest revolution in the Western world’s optimistic perceptions of the future since the beginning of the use of our fossil fuel inheritance in the 18th century. Retrenchment and scarcity will now be the themes of international discourse. This work probes the philosophical assumptions behind this planning lapse, the sudden confrontation with a reversal of all that has powered our political and economic institutions.Price: $199.95
