A New York Times bestseller Like the classic heroines of Sarah, Plain and Tall, Little Women, and Anne of Green Gables, Ada is a fighter for the ages. Her triumphant World War II journey continues in this sequel to the Newbery Honor–winning The War that Saved My Life When Ada’s clubfoot is surgically fixed at last, she knows for certain that she’s not what her mother said she was—damaged, deranged, crippled mentally as well as physically. She’s not a daughter anymore, either. Who is she now? World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-faced Lady Thorton and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded home is tense. Then Ruth moves in. Ruth, a Jewish girl, from Germany. A German? Could Ruth be a spy? As the fallout from war intensifies, calamity creeps closer, and life during wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada decide to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save? Ada’s first story, The War that Saved My Life, was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won a Newbery Honor, the Schneider Family Book Award, and the Josette Frank Award, in addition to appearing on multiple best-of-the-year lists. This second masterwork of historical fiction continues Ada's journey of family, faith, and identity, showing us that real freedom is not just the ability to choose, but the courage to make the right choice.

It is 1943, and 11-year-old Dewey Kerrigan is traveling west on a train to live with her scientist father—but no one, not her father nor the military guardians who accompany her, will tell her exactly where he is. When she reaches Los Alamos, New Mexico, she learns why: he's working on a top secret government program. Over the next few years, Dewey gets to know eminent scientists, starts tinkering with her own mechanical projects, becomes friends with a budding artist who is as much of a misfit as she is—and, all the while, has no idea how the Manhattan Project is about to change the world. This book's fresh prose and fascinating subject are like nothing you've read before.

Publicatie over vrouwen die op latere leeftijd een hogere of een academische opleiding beginnen. Bevat enerzijds een waaier aan praktische informatie over de verschillende mogelijkheden, adressen, aanpassingsprogramma's, financiële knelpunten, e.d.; anderzijds een onderzoek naar het profiel van de 'wederkerende studenten' en een theoretische beschouwing over de vrouwenbeweging en feminisme. Zeer interessant maar jammer genoeg gedateerd en enkel over de Amerikaanse situatie.

"War, Peace, and International Politics, " Eighth Edition, begins by examining a unique characteristic of international relations: war. The text seeks to discover the causes of war by looking at historical cases and moves from these cases to theories about the causes of war. It then looks at a variety of proposals for eliminating war, or, if not eliminating, then reducing its incidence or ameliorating its effects. Ten different approaches to reducing conflict are assessed for weaknesses and strengths.
