It is high time for more diversity in education, diversity that includes thorough, articulate, Black males. Contrary to popular belief, the need for a strong emergence of Black male teachers is not only for the benefit of Black boys and Black girls. Children and parents of all races and both genders need to be introduced to the antithesis of the stereotypical Black man and build strong, healthy relationships that will be the means for greater racial and ethnic harmony.

In Inexcusable Absence, Maureen Lewis and Marlaine Lockheed show that nearly three quarters of the 60 million girls not in school belong to ethnic, religious, linguistic, racial, or other minorities. Getting these girls into school requires new strategies that directly address their broader exclusion from society. Drawing on detailed analysis of what is already working in both developed and developing countries, and emphasizing both the lack of household "demand" and the socially restricted "supply" of schooling for excluded groups, Inexcusable Absence offers concrete proposals for new policies and programs.

"A triumph . . . the sort of ambitious American storytelling you find too rarely at the movies."-Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune Academy Award® nominated writer and director Kenneth Lonergan has written a stirring drama that was called "extraordinarily ambitious" by Time and "a film of rare beauty and shocking gravity" by Rolling Stone. Delayed for 4 years in post-production, the film was finally released in 2011, with a director's cut following on DVD in 2012. Our edition will include the scripts of the full director's cut, along with an introduction and key tie-in art. Margaret is the story of a Manhattan teenager whose life is profoundly altered after witnessing a terrible accident. It is the extraordinary journey of an emotional teen who abides by her moral code and wants to set things right, but whose innocent ideals come crashing against the harsh realities of the adult world. It is a story of youth, love, the consequences of mistakes, and the fundamental questions of morality as faced by a teenager in an extraordinary situation.

Philosopher Vladimir Jankélévitch has only recently begun to receive his due from the English-speaking world, thanks in part to discussions of his thought by Jacques Derrida, Emmanuel Lévinas, and Paul Ricoeur. His international readers have long valued his unique, interdisciplinary approach to philosophy’s greatest questions and his highly readable writing style. Originally published in 1967, Le Pardon, or Forgiveness, is one of Jankélévitch’s most influential works. In it, he characterizes the ultimate ethical act of forgiving as behaving toward the perpetrator as if he or she had never committed the action, rather than merely forgetting or rationalizing it—a controversial notion when considering events as heinous as the Holocaust. Like so many of Jankélévitch’s works, Forgiveness transcends standard treatments of moral problems, not simply generating a treatise on one subject but incorporating discussions of topics such as free will, giving, creativity, and temporality. Translator Andrew Kelley masterfully captures Jankélévitch’s melodic prose and, in a substantive introduction, reviews his life and intellectual contributions. Forgiveness is an essential part of that legacy, and this indispensable English translation provides key tools for understanding one of the great Western philosophers of the twentieth century.
