Описание: Offers an interpretation of Plato`s most controversial dialogue. Treating "The Republic" as a unity and focusing on the dramatic form as the presentation of the argument, this work challenges earlier analyses of the "Republic" and argues that the key to understanding the dialogue is to grasp the author`s intention in composing it.

Описание: METCO, America's longest-running voluntary school desegregation programme, has for 34 years transported black children from Boston's city neighbourhoods
to predominantly white suburban schools. In contrast to the infamous violence and rage of forced school transportation within the city in the 1970s, METCO has quietly and calmly
promoted school integration. How has this programme affected the lives of its graduates? Would they choose to participate if they had to do it again? Would they place their own
children on the bus to the suburbs? Sixty-five METCO graduates vividly recall their own stories in this revealing book.
Susan Eaton interviewed programme participants who
are now adults, asking them to assess the benefits and hardships of crossing racial and class lines on their way to school. Their answers poignantly show that this type of racial
integration is not easy - they struggled to negotiate both black and white worlds, often feeling fully accepted in neither. Even so, nearly all the participants believe the long-term gains
outweighed the costs and would choose a similar programme for their own children - though not without conditions and apprehensions.
Even as courts and policymakers
today are forcing the abandonment of desegregation, educators warn that students are better prepared in schools that reflect our national diversity. This book offers an accessible and
moving account of a rare programme that, despite serious challenges, provides a practical remedy for the persistent inequalities in American education.

Описание: The Institute of Contemporary Art, designed by Diller + Scofidio (now Diller Scofidio + Renfro), was the first new art museum to be built in Boston in a century. Opened in December 2006, the ICA is located on a small parcel of land on Boston Harbor and this is the 25th location for the museum in its 75 year history and its first, permanent, free-standing home. "The ICA's decision to hire Diller + Scofidio reflected our belief in the firm's vision that architecture can shape as well as reflect contemporary experience," stated Jill Medvedow, director of ICA. The architects balanced use of cool and transparent glass with the warmth of wood and the energy of light, as well as their design of spare, flexible spaces for presenting contemporary art, was a revelation for a city and an architectural community. ''Their brilliant and beautiful design of the ICA was a harbinger of change: edgy, bold and breathtaking, transforming the landscape for contemporary art and culture in Boston and for the artists, art and ideas of our time," Medvedow has said.

Описание: Boston after dark is the town that scared and repulsed even Edgar Allan Poe, inspired H.P. Lovecraft, and brought the hunting of witches and murder of hapless innocents to American shores. Come to the Boston Common and walk over a thousand bodies of the long-dead. Take in some theater and be sure to excuse yourself when passing by the seat that only seems empty. Head out to the swampy suburbs, dance with the Will o the Wisps and hike along the lost paths of Dogtown, where witches once extracted tolls on passersby. Welcome to Bostons eerie environs, and watch out for stranglers.
