In A Scientist Speaks Out ? A Personal Perspective on Science, Society, and Change, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry, 1951) Glenn T Seaborg shares some of his thoughts and reflections on his broad interests, from the formulation of national science policy to the promise of youth. During a distinguished career in science and public service that spanned more than 50 years, he published over 500 works and maintained a public speaking schedule that included about 700 speeches on a wide variety of topics. This volume is a collection of nearly forty of his more popular speeches and articles, directed at a mostly non-scientific and non-technical audience. Since this volume is a compendium of reprints, readers will be able to share some of Seaborg's thoughts, as he originally penned them.

You can't get away with the easy distinction between speak- ing ex cathedra as a scientist when the question is ... to their civic responsibilities , so that they grow up willing and able to make intel- ligent practical decisions .

Not a method of turning your degree back in and having your loans forgiven, but an argument that by becoming vocational schools measured by reduced cost and efficient production, colleges and universities are neglecting their essential purpose. The reason for college education, says Allan, is to provide an environment within which students can absorb the moral practices that determine how they can acquire and evaluate knowledge, best conduct their lives, and become responsible adults. He maintains that such learning requires imagination, dialogue, conversation, and cultured intercourse. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

An accessible, timely and practical handbook for women on speaking out safely and confidently from no.1 non-fiction bestseller Tara Moss. Worldwide, less than one out of every four people we hear from or about in the media is female, and men outnumber women in parliament by more than three to one. If half of humanity's experiences, perspectives and possible solutions to world problems are under-represented, or entirely unheard, all of us lose out. Tara Moss has spent 20 years in the public sphere and has had to face down nerves, critics and backlash to emerge as a leader in speaking out. In this handbook she offers advice on preparation, speaking out and negotiating public spaces. With a special focus on public speaking, writing, social media and online safety, she offers tips on how to research, form arguments, find support and handle criticism. This is a guide for women young and old that not only helps them find their voice, but argues passionately for why it matters. PRAISE FOR SPEAKING OUT ‘To say this book is timely is to put it mildly ... It should be mandatory reading for every teenage girl, let alone women in general.' Weekly Times 'This book by Tara Moss is so very important. It has been an eye-opening read for me and it has changed my life. If every young man and every young woman was given a copy of this book it would make so many small changes in individual behaviours that we might just be able to begin to tackle a problem that is often invisible to us' Krissy Kneen, Avid Reader 'Moss provides clear, simple strategies to cope with the often disproportionately agressive response women receive when they speak out' Jane Gilmore, Guardian Australia 'Written specifically to help women combat the unacceptable challenges they face when telling their stories in public in the age of online trolling. It deconstructs abuse and belittling techniques in an enormously helpful way.' Clare Bowditch 'We think this is a handbook for every woman in the world.' Ramona magazine 'Can't recommend it enough - every girl ought to have a copy!' Virginia Gay, ABC Book Club TV

An award-winning historian's pathbreaking book uses federal education policy from the Great Society to Reagan's New Morning to demonstrate how innovative policies become entrenched irrespective of who occupies the White House.
