Desperate to Achieve
Understanding the Lives, Struggles, and Motivations of Community College Students Assigned to Developmental Classes


by
Jason VanOra

Jason VanOra’s Desperate to Achieve provides one of the most intimate explorations of the journeys, hardships, and aspirations of “developmental” or “remedial” community college students currently available. Based on an intensive set of interviews concerning students’ life histories and academic challenges, Desperate to Achieve is one of the sole texts to defy common representations of these at-risk students and more fully illuminate their commitments to scholarship, unique wisdoms about teaching and learning, and identities that are enhanced by relationships with others.

The Cooper Connection
The Influence of Jane Austen on James Fenimore Cooper


by
Barbara Alice Mann

One of the first things that budding scholars of James Fenimore Cooper learn is that he owed a literary debt to Jane Austen. Scholars have ignored the connection, satisfying themselves with brief allusions to Cooper’s debt to Austen without fully examining their linkages. With The Cooper Connection, Barbara Alice Mann finally gives the many overlapping interests, attitudes, and themes of these two authors the detailed study they deserve.
