As Gibson struggled to establish a law practice in postwar New Orleans, he experienced a profound change in his thinking and came to believe that the elimination of slavery was the one good outcome of the South's defeat. Joining Louisiana's Conservative political faction, he advocated for a postwar unification government that included African Americans. Elected to Congress in 1874, Gibson was directly involved in the creation of the Electoral Commission that resulted in the Compromise of 1877 and peacefully solved the disputed 1876 presidential election. He crafted legislation for the Mississippi River Commission in 1879, which eventually resulted in millions of federal dollars for flood control.
Gibson was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1880 and became Louisiana's leading "minister of reconciliation" with his northern colleagues and its chief political spokesman during the highly volatile Gilded Age. He deplored the growing gap between the rich and the poor and embraced a reformist agenda that included federal funding for public schools and legislation for levee construction, income taxes, and the direct election of senators. This progressive stance made Gibson one of the last patrician Democrats whose noblesse oblige politics sought common middle ground between the extreme political and social positions of his era. At the request of wealthy New Orleans merchant Paul Tulane, Gibson took charge of Tulane's educational endowment and helped design the university that bears Tulane's name, serving as the founding president of the board of administrators.
Highly readable and thoroughly researched, Mary Gorton McBride's absorbing biography illuminates in dramatic fashion the life and times of a unique Louisianan.
Auctions, trumpless hands, cross-ruffing and lurching: card players have a language all of their own. From games of high skill (Bridge) to games of high chance (Newmarket) to trick-taking (Whist) and banking (Pontoon), David Parlett, seasoned specialist in card games, takes us masterfully through the countless games to choose from.
Not content to merely show us games with the conventional fifty-two card pack, Parlett covers many games played with other types of cards - are you brave enough to play with Tarot? With a 'working description' of each game, with the rules, variations and origins of each, as well as an appendix of games invented by the author himself, The Penguin Book of Card Games will delight, entertain and inform both the novice and the seasoned player.
This book will support teachers, counselors, and administrators in creating a culturally relevant, school-wide, college-going culture to improve educational experiences and outcomes for Black and Latina/o youth. The authors present the perspectives and experiences of 25 students, focusing on the complexities of their daily lives and illuminating some of the significant influences that have supported or hindered their college readiness and access. They situate issues of college access in a national context, provide insight into who and what influences youth's college-going processes, and engage readers in critical analysis to create culturally relevant policies and practices within their own school contexts.

“College-Readybrings courage and a bold urgency to the discussion of college readiness for children who have been written off by too many educators, administrators, and in some cases their own parents.... I urge all who are concerned about the educational well being of both Latino/a and African American youth to read this book.”
—From the Foreword byRonald S. Rochon, University of Southern Indiana
Advance Praise for College-Ready—
“I am mightily impressed. This is one of the few studies to jointly address educational issues of African American and Latina/o youth. Knight and Marciano show how a culturally responsive pedagogy, considered broadly and systemically in terms of creating a pipeline to college, serves to create a powerful context for student and teacher development.”
—Luis C. Moll, University of Arizona, Language, Reading, and Culture
“Rarely do we hear the voices of administrators, counselors, teachers, researchers, and youth from underrepresented groups and their families on what the college-going process means.... This work is a masterpiece as it positions Black and Latina/o youth and their families as contributors of knowledge.”
—Sylvia Celedón-Pattichis, University of New Mexico, Bilingual and Mathematics Education
“At a time when career readiness is emphasized more than college readiness for too many Black and Brown students in U.S. schools, Knight and Marciano demand that policymakers and educators make college a viable option for all students. Anyone interested in and committed to educational equity should read this book. This book convicts as it inspires!”
—H. Richard Milner IV, Vanderbilt University, Teaching and Learning
“The authors suggest creative new directions for policies and practices supporting students' high achievement, embracing their cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and raising critical questions to consider in creating culturally relevant college-going structures in our nation's schools.”
—Chance W. Lewis, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Urban Education
“One could argue that access to higher education for Black and Latina/o students is at the apex of the unfinished civil rights agenda. Knight and Marciano provide persuasive evidence that the talent we lose when we exclude Black and Latina/o students is a devastating loss to the U.S. and to our values of 'equal justice under law' and 'equal educational opportunity.' Those working to make these values a reality must read and practice the social justice lessons ofCollege-Ready.”

After examining punishment from two points of view—that of the punisher and that of the offender who is to be punished—Adler proposes the Paradigm of the Conscientious Punishee: a repentant wrongdoer who views punishment as not necessarily unpleasant, but as something it is morally incumbent upon one to undertake. The author argues that this paradigm must play a central role in the theory of punishment. Citing community service projects and penances for sin (as required by some religions), Adler argues that punishment need not involve pain or any other disvalue. Instead he defines it in terms of its justificatiory connection with wrongdoing: punishment is that which is justified by the prior commission of an offense and generally not justified without the prior commission of an offense.
The rectification theory applies particularly to offenses involving basic liberties. It is based on the assumption that each person is guaranteed the right to an inviolable sphere of liberty. Someone who commits an offense has expanded his or her sphere by arrogating excess liberties. In order to maintain the equality on which this theory rests, an equivalent body of liberties must be given up. In discussing applications of the theory, Adler demonstrates that active service (as punishment) is more effective in safeguarding important rights and interests and maintaining the social contract than is afflictive punishment.
