The notion of resistance resides as a deep-seated premise underpinning the democratic foundation of the United States. Given the distinctive standing of public education in the U.S., this book explores the multiple roles - and numerous contexts - that resistance plays in contemporary educational settings. Resistance in education creates, or reflects, the multiple counter-discourses that arise to challenge the one or more dominant discourses in any given educational setting. There is potency in the plurality of the varied and sometimes controversial arguments provided by each essay in this volume, which should be read by everyone interested in the concept within the framework of education today.

    I read a lot of books about spirituality and the afterlife. This is the best. It is so different from books by all the other mediums. It presents the facts and evidence and gives plausible scientific explanations about the afterlife and about how people can communicate with souls. Mark's writing style is so engaging it is a joy to read.

    I'm looking to build a business website to offer a unique set of services related to Project Management. I've looked at some of the free sites (Wix, Websitebuilder, etc.), and I don't seem to see a template that would be a good fit for the type of business and services I want to offer. I'm now thinking about looking at some of the paid website companies, but there are a lot of them. Any recommendations for either paid or free sites? Thanks.

      squarespace provides hosting services as part of their package, so if you build a website using Squarespace, you can't host it with your local host. You can only host your site with Squarespace as their platform has proprietary technology so that certain functions can only function within their own operating environment.
