 Good to get contact from our dear friend Edith King recently. Edith’s recent book on Teaching in an Era of Teerroism is immediately brought to mind  with the sad events in the The Boston Marathon bombing and other daily tragedies around the world

 Against the backdrop of omnipresent terror and the threats of world-shattering warfare as well as epic natural disasters, it is vital that schools and teachers work with students towards tolerance, social justice, and conflict resolution.  This fourth edition is thoroughly updated with references to current events, including most recent natural disasters and terrorist acts. The book continues to offer a worldview for educating children growing up in a climate of worldwide terrorism and uncertainty.  This book will be of great interest to experienced teachers, teachers in pre-service training, administrators, counselors and social workers. This book will enable them to be more effective in working with children and their families.
