TITLE: Madness, Betrayal and the Lash
AUTHOR: Stephen R. Brown
PUBLISHER: Douglas and McIntyre
BINDING: Hardcover
FULL TITLE: Madness, Betrayal and the Lash: The Epic Voyage of Captain George Vancouver
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: From 1792 to 1795, George Vancouver sailed the Pacific as the captain of his own expedition — and as an agent of imperial ambition. To map a place is to control it, and Britain had its eyes on America's Pacific coast. And map it Vancouver did. His voyage was one of history’s greatest feats of maritime daring, discovery, and diplomacy, and his marine survey of Hawaii and the Pacific coast was at its time the most comprehensive ever undertaken. But just two years after returning to Britain, the 40-year-old Vancouver, hounded by critics, shamed by public humiliation at the fists of an aristocratic sailor he had flogged, and blacklisted because of a perceived failure to follow the Admiralty’s directives, died in poverty, nearly forgotten. In this riveting and perceptive biography, historian Stephen Bown delves into the events that destroyed Vancouver’s reputation and restores his position as one of the greatest explorers of the Age of Discovery.

FULL TITLE: Going Against the Grain: When Professionals in Hawaii Choose Public Schools Instead of Private Schools (1st Edition)
- Buy it at Amazon.com
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: This book is about passion, advocacy, and the willingness of parents to 'go against the grain'. It's about Hawaii professionals choosing public education for their children in a state that adheres to a commonly held belief that 'public schools are failing and private schools are succeeding'. University of Hawai'i education professor Ann Bayer interviewed fifty-one parents, including five who chose private schools. Physicians, professors, attorneys, military officers, teachers, legislators, business executives and entrepreneurs, bankers, and administrators of both genders and from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds were among those interviewed. Bayer begins by asking parents why they chose to send their children to public schools. She also asks them to describe the reaction of families, friends, and colleagues to their decision and their children's school experiences-both positive and negative. From these conversations the concept of what constitutes a 'good public school' emerges as well as the opportunities provided by such schools. Several parents remark that their children have gone on to attend the same colleges and universities as private school graduates. Other chapters examine more closely the prevalent belief in the superiority of Hawai'i's private schools and its impact on students, parents, and teachers. Bayer argues that it is important to understand this belief system and how both newcomers and longtime residents are exposed to it given its influence on parental decisions about schooling. Finally, she returns to interviews with parents for suggestions on how to improve public education in Hawai'i and to address the question, 'Why should we care about the public school system?' Responses spark frank discussions on the broader implications for the civic and economic health of a community fragmented by two-tiered schooling. Author Ann Shea Bayer is professor and chair in the Educational Psychology Department at the University of Hawai'i.
