The College Labyrinth: A Mindful Admissions Approach explores the potential role of the labyrinth in the college application process, seeking a new implementation for a very old tool, to help today's nomads and educational pilgrims to find their way, to grow comfortable with their individual journeys, and to recognize this time in their lives as an opportunity not for stress and anxiety, but for community and self-discovery. Whether the journey is physical, psychological, overtly spiritual or simply metaphorical, Dr. Avery presents the archetype of the labyrinth as a powerful tool to navigate change and to help all college stakeholders to remain centered and mindful.

“A weekend’s engaging pursuit.” Five Stars—David Lloyd Sutton, San Francisco Book Review Educated and inquisitive, Pandita Ramabai was born in 1858 near Gangamul in the Western Ghat mountains of southern India. The daughter of a Sanskrit scholar, she rose to become a respected scholar herself, in a time when women rarely held such positions. But having lost nearly everyone she loved to famine or cholera, Rama spent most of her life in search of a community she could call home. A widow and single mother, she became a social activist and reformer, relentlessly advocating for the education of women and the care of India’s many poor, widowed child-brides. Rama’s journey takes readers across British India to England and America as this strong, determined woman battles prejudice, tradition and a male-dominated society to find justice for those with no voice or opportunity. The Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission, which she founded during a severe famine, became home to thousands of outcast children, child widows, orphans, and other destitute women. It is still active today. As one of the world’s great, unsung heroines, Pandita Ramabai has been called one of India’s “greatest daughters.”

A lady once casually remarked on British public broadcasting that a third of society is depressed but no one ever speaks about it. Perhaps, in all seriousness, it is to this third of the population that this book is addressed. However you don't have to be depressed to read it. Potentially it is both amusing and instructive, light and deep. Shocked by the approach of his fiftieth year, an English bachelor makes a desperate attempt to become inwardly aware of his given circumstances. The attempt is sustained as a trial over a complete seven-year cycle in his life, leading virtually to the constitution of a new self. Occasionally enlivened by humour, what is particularly valuable in this account of Hero's manoeuvrings in time is its honesty and sustained sense of hope.

"The dominant discourse on African American and Latina/o college access and choice describes general schooling, sociocultural, and historical factors associated with students' likelihood to attend. The essential elements are fairly consistent in the higher education literature. High school grades, standardized test scores, pre-college experiences, family socioeconomic status, federal financial aid policy, state appropriations and residential proximity to college campuses, have all been shown to contribute to postsecondary enrollment (McDonough, 1997; Perna & Thomas, 2008; Tierney & Venegas, 2009; Turley, 2009). Non-dominant discourses of college access and choice for these populations draw on factors of de-facto segregation and the continued presence of racism shaping higher education opportunities for people of color (Minor, 2008; Harper, 2012). In an effort to challenge the dominant discourse and support non-dominant discourses of college access and choice, I employ a postcolonial geographic (PCG) framework. The use of postcolonialism as a research methodology in higher education is rare due to its focus on the third world and its origins in literary criticism (Barker, 2008). Nevertheless, in this study I aim to show how traditional access and choice factors function as elements of internal colonialism (Tuck & Yang, 2012) and how public transportation is a significant but understudied factor in access and choice for African American and Latina/o residents. Postcolonialism thus forms part of a three-pronged theoretical framework that also includes critical geographic theories and the spatial mismatch approach (Sanchez, Stolz, & Ma, 2003). The PCG framework orients this study toward a mixed-method research design. The reason is that postcolonialism challenges the dominant discourse, highlighting the value of the subaltern experience - the experience of groups and individuals on the margins of society. The PCG framework allows for both quantitative and qualitative modes of data collection and analysis. A transformative explanatory sequential model (Creswell & Clark, 2011) is used to analyze U.S. Census data, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Systems (IPEDS) data, public transportation data, and bus-riding observational data. The quantitative and geographic data were collected through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS); the bus-riding qualitative data were collected through personal observation. Geographic differences were found across educational and economic variables, including race, household income, college proximity, and public transportation. The quantitative and geographic data revealed college 'deserts' and college 'oases' in urban and suburban areas. Race and high-income variables were found to be statistically significant across the postcolonial geographies, whereas low-income variables were not. Qualitative data supported the classification of some urban areas as deserts. Indeed, the suggestion is made that there exists bus-riding apartheid. I argue that the public transit system controls access for racial/ethnic minoritized urban residents. In this respect, it is indeed a 'labyrinth.' Consequently, there is an urgent need for urban reform. This could be accomplished through collaboration between communities and educational institutions. Future research should be directed especially toward the deserts - local urban areas with high concentrations of residents who have not earned high school or college degrees. Through college-community partnerships, urban-specific policies and higher education practices could together provide a way out of the labyrinth"--Pages vii-ix.

Intellectual history has never been more relevant and more important to public life in the United States. In complicated and confounding times, people look for the principles that drive action and the foundations that support national ideals. American Labyrinth demonstrates the power of intellectual history to illuminate our public life and examine our ideological assumptions. This volume of essays brings together 19 influential intellectual historians to contribute original thoughts on topics of widespread interest. Raymond Haberski Jr. and Andrew Hartman asked a group of nimble, sharp scholars to respond to a simple question: How might the resources of intellectual history help shed light on contemporary issues with historical resonance? The answers—all rigorous, original, and challenging—are as eclectic in approach and temperament as the authors are different in their interests and methods. Taken together, the essays of American Labyrinth illustrate how intellectual historians, operating in many different registers at once and ranging from the theoretical to the political, can provide telling insights for understanding a public sphere fraught with conflict. In order to understand why people are ready to fight over cultural symbols and political positions we must have insight into how ideas organize, enliven, and define our lives. Ultimately, as Haberski and Hartman show in this volume, the best route through our contemporary American labyrinth is the path that traces our practical and lived ideas.

Media Kit Since her death in 1922, Sarah Winchester has been perceived as a mysterious, haunted figure. After inheriting a vast fortune upon the death of her husband in 1881, Sarah purchased a simple farmhouse in San José, California. She began building additions to the house and continued construction on it for the next twenty years. A hostile press cast Sarah as the conscience of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company—a widow shouldering responsibility for the many deaths caused by the rifle that brought her riches. She was accused of being a ghost-obsessed spiritualist, and to this day it is largely believed that the extensive construction she executed on her San José house was done to appease the ghouls around her. But was she really as guilt-ridden and superstitious as history remembers her? When Winchester’s home was purchased after her death, it was transformed into a tourist attraction. The bizarre, sprawling mansion and the enigmatic nature of Winchester’s life were exaggerated by the new owners to generate publicity for their business. But as the mansion has become more widely known, the person of Winchester has receded from reality, and she is only remembered for squandering her riches to ward off disturbed spirits. Captive of the Labyrinth: Sarah L. Winchester, Heiress to the Rifle Fortune demystifies the life of this unique American. In the first full-length biography of Winchester, author and historian Mary Jo Ignoffo unearths the truth about this notorious eccentric, revealing that she was not a maddened spiritualist driven by remorse but an intelligent, articulate woman who sought to protect her private life amidst the chaos of her public existence. The author takes readers through Winchester’s several homes, explores her private life, and, by excerpting from personal correspondence, gives the heiress a voice for the first time since her death. Ignoffo’s research reveals that Winchester’s true financial priority was not dissipating her fortune on the mansion in San José but investing it for a philanthropic legacy. For too long Sarah Winchester has existed as a ghost herself—a woman whose existence lies somewhere between the facts of her life and a set of sensationalized recollections of who she may have been. Captive of the Labyrinth finally puts to rest the myths about this remarkable woman, and, in the process, uncovers the legacy she intended to leave behind.

What exactly does it mean to be North American? Europeans have been engaged in a long-running debate about the meaning and nature of Europe. The Labyrinth of North American Identities generates a similar discussion in the context of North America: what do we learn about North America as a unit and its individual countries when we explore the idea of a shared North American identity? Combining cultural, anthropological, historical, political, economic, and religious considerations, Philip Resnick acknowledges the relative differences in power and influence of the United States and its North American neighbours but digs deeper to uncover shared characteristics that constitute a labyrinth of North American identities unrestricted by national boundaries. To date, discussions of North America have largely revolved around the often technical implications of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or US homeland security. What has been lacking, by contrast, is a culturally-driven set of reflections. This book examines the legacy of indigenous cultures; the role of organized religion; pathways to independence; the role of imperial languages; manifest destiny; market capitalism and its limitations; democratic practices and failures; diverging uses of the state; new world utopias and dystopias; regional identities; and civilizational perspectives. What results is a vision of North America that defies any top-down attempt to impose a homogeneous "North Americanness."
