 - Legal Lessons: Popularizing Laws in the People’s Republic of China, 1949–1989 (Harvard East Asian Monographs)
Legal Lessons: Popularizing Laws in the People’s Republic of China, 1949–1989 (Harvard East Asian

The popularization of basic legal knowledge is an important and contested technique of state governance in China today. Its roots reach back to the early years of Chinese Communist Party rule. Legal Lessons tells the story of how the party-state attempted to mobilize ordinary citizens to learn laws during the early years of the Mao period (1949–1976) and in the decade after Mao’s death.Examining case studies such as the dissemination of the 1950 Marriage Law and successive constitutions since 1954 in Beijing and Shanghai, Jennifer Altehenger traces the dissemination of legal knowledge at different levels of state and society. Archival records, internal publications, periodicals, advice manuals, memoirs, and colorful propaganda materials reveal how official attempts to determine and promote “correct” understanding of written laws intersected with people’s interpretations and practical experiences. They also show how diverse groups―including party-state leadership, legal experts, publishers, writers, artists, and local officials, along with ordinary people―helped to define the meaning of laws in China’s socialist society. Placing mass legal education and law propaganda at the center of analysis, Legal Lessons offers a new perspective on the sociocultural and politic...

 - Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning
Make It Stick: The Science of Successful

To most of us, learning something "the hard way" implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners.Memory plays a central role in our ability to carry out complex cognitive tasks, such as applying knowledge to problems never before encountered and drawing inferences from facts already known. New insights into how memory is encoded, consolidated, and later retrieved have led to a better understanding of how we learn. Grappling with the impediments that make learning challenging leads both to more complex mastery and better retention of what was learned.Many common study habits and practice routines turn out to be counterproductive. Underlining and highlighting, rereading, cramming, and single-minded repetition of new skills create the illusion of mastery, but gains fade quickly. More complex and durable learning come from self-testing, introducing certain difficulties in practice, waiting to re-study new material until a little forge...

Harvard Lessons - Life Lessons of a Harvard Reject - eBook
Life Lessons of a Harvard Reject -

    Every so often a book comes along that strives for the extraordinary and actually achieves it … one that far exceeds its already ambitious reach. That book is Life Lessons of a Harvard Reject by Peter Bennett. It starts with a story about the Statue of 3 Lies, which sits in Harvard Yard. Though the name “John Harvard” and founding date of the institution are carved in stone, neither is accurate. Harvard didn’t even found America’s oldest university. The bronze figure itself might as well be Peter Pan because no one knows what Harvard looked like. No records existed when Daniel French, sculptor of the Lincoln Monument, started his “Harvard” commission. Only such a story could be told by a Harvard Reject who, like Warren Buffett, Tom Brokaw and a host of others, was denied admission as is the case with about 94% of all applicants. But Harvard Reject is not a book about sour grapes. Rather, every compelling chapter and sub-chapter motivates and inspires readers to be more than they ever thought they could be. Indeed, while it serves as a self-improvement guide and playbook loaded with advice and supported by hundreds of fascinating facts, anecdotes, and sayings -- all put into historical context -- it counsels readers to always seek and verify their own truth (nullius in verba), even when the supposed truth is etched in stone. Any reader that has enjoyed the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Road less Traveled, The Power of Positive Thinking, How to Win Friends and Influence People, and other self-improvement classics will absolutely admire and adore Life Lessons of a Harvard Reject. Moreover, the teachers in the book include everyone from Jesus Christ to J.C. Penney and from Socrates to The Simpsons. If you at all aspire to be a little better tomorrow than you are today, Life Lessons will show you how to: • React quicker • Change faster • Dream bigger • Focus better • Get healthier • Sell sooner • See farther • Work smarter • Think deeper • Give and risk more The above are just a few of the lessons, but the real value of the book is the enthusiasm for life it generates. It’s edgy, humorous, hysterical, historical, angry at times, reverential and always respectful. Parents, students, teachers, business leaders, coaches, players and anyone else who wants to make an impact in this world will find Life Lessons a constant and abundant source of motivation, inspiration, and wonder. It will help you tear down every wall holding back your success and bash every barrier that has kept you from achieving what you most want from life. Don’t judge Life Lessons by its title or its cover; trust its contents. Inside, you'll find your truth. Let the lessons begin!
