              Beeline: What Spelling Bees Reveal about Generation Z's New Path to Success (Hardback)

              By Shankar, Shalini

              An anthropologist uses spelling bees as a lens to examine the unique and diverse traits of Generation Z-and why they are destined for success On first glance, Generation Z (youth born after 1997) seems to be made up of anxious overachievers, hounded by Tiger Moms and constantly t...racked on social media. One would think that competitors in the National Spelling Bee-the most popular brain sport in America-would be the worst off. Counterintuitively, anthropologist Shalini Shankar argues that far from being simply overstressed and overscheduled, Gen Z kids are learning crucial twenty-first-century skills from their high-powered lives, displaying a sophisticated understanding of self-promotion, self-direction, and social mobility. Drawing on original ethnographic research, including interviews with participants, judges, and parents, Shankar examines the outsized impact of immigrant parents and explains why Gen Z kids are on a path to success.

              The Forgotten Gospels: Life and Teachings of Jesus Supplementary to the New Testament (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Introduction by Newton, Tim; Notes by Newton, Dr Tim

              The Forgotten Gospels shows how the creation of the canon that we now take for granted excluded many important, informative, and illuminating writings about the life, death, and teachings of Jesus. Here are texts newly translated from their original Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Slavonic..., and Coptic and accompanied by clear, concise explanations of their origins and relevance. Together, they form a supplement to the New Testament that will set the record straight. The materials have survived in fragments and snippets, some only discovered in modern times (the gospel of Thomas turned up in 1945), others via the writings of early Christians. Many will challenge current understanding: The gospel of the Hebrews introduces an alternative account of the resurrection; Clement of Alexandria writes of and quotes from a secret gospel of Mark; Celsus claims that Mary had an adulterous affair with Panthera and the result was Jesus--all will be of intense interest.

              The Booker Prize-winning novel--intertwining the narratives of two women, past and present, and their relationships to India--from the novelist, short story writer, and two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala Partly set in colonial India during the 1920s,... Heat and Dust tells the story of Olivia, a beautiful woman suffocated by the propriety and social constraints of her position as the wife of an important English civil servant. Longing for passion and independence, Olivia is drawn into the spell of the Nawab, a minor Indian prince deeply involved in gang raids and criminal plots. She is intrigued by the Nawab's charm and aggressive courtship, and soon begins to spend most of her days in his company. But then she becomes pregnant, and unsure of the child's paternity, she is faced with a wrenching dilemma. Her reaction to the crisis humiliates her husband and outrages the British community, breeding a scandal that lives in collective memory long after her death.

              A definitive new history of the Vikings The Viking Age -- between 750 and 1050 -- saw an unprecedented expansion of the Scandinavian peoples. As traders and raiders, explorers and colonists, they reshaped the world between eastern North America and the Asian steppe. For a millenn...ium, though, their history has largely been filtered through the writings of their victims. Based on the latest archaeological and textual evidence, Children of Ash and Elm tells the story of the Vikings on their own terms: their politics, their cosmology, their art and culture. From Bjoern Ironside, who led an expedition to sack Rome, to Gudrid Thorbjarnardottir, the most traveled woman in the world, Price shows us the real Vikings, not the caricatures they've become in popular culture and history.
