Maria Edgeworth (1767-1849) was an Anglo-Irish novelist. She was born at Black Bourton, Oxfordshire, the second child of Richard Lovell Edgeworth, a well-known author and inventor. On her father's second marriage in 1773, she went with him to Ireland, where she eventually was to settle on his estate, Edgeworthstown, in County Longford. She acted as manager of her father's estate, later drawing on this experience for her novels about the Irish. Maria's first published work was Letters for Literary Ladies in 1795, followed in 1796 by her first children's book, The Parent's Assistant; or, Stories for Children, and in 1800 by her first novel Castle Rackrent. Mr. Edgeworth encouraged his daughter's career, and has been criticized for his insistence on approving and editing her work. After her father's death in 1817 she edited his memoirs, and extended them with her biographical comments. She was an active writer to the last, and worked strenuously for the relief of the famine-stricken Irish peasants during the Irish Potato Famine (1845-1849).

This Student Edition of Broken Glass is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled and comprehensive guide to Miller's play. It features an extensive introduction by Alan Ackerman which includes a chronology of Miller's life and times, a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases from the text, this is the definitive edition of the play. Set in Brooklyn in 1938, Broken Glass is Miller's moving study of marital relations, Jewish identity and anti-Semitism that won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1994. Sylvia Gellburg is stricken by a mysterious paralysis in her legs for which the doctor can find no cause. He soon realises that she is obsessed by the devastating news from Germany, where government thugs have begun smashing Jewish stores. But through a series of meetings with her husband Phillip he learns that this experience is intermeshed with their strange relationship and the deceptions and hostilities that lie at the heart of their marriage. Professor Alan Acklerman's expertly edited edition of the play provides a wide-ranging study of Kristallnacht, and of American and European responses to the Holocaust, the situation of Jews in America from the 1930s to the 1990s, the Great Depression and other Holocaust and Jewish drama.

ABOUT THE BOOK 2012 is a year of celebration -- festivals, readings, theatrical shows, films, seminars, tours -- all in honor of the great and inimitable Charles Dickens, on his 200th birthday. Dickens, one of the most celebrated authors in English-language history, was wildly popular even during the course of his own life. Known as a prolific and important artist, unceasingly productive, Dickens wrote, edited, toured, lectured, and acted -- sometimes even in productions of his own plays. In total, Dickens composed twenty-four novels, plays, books of poetry, and works of nonfiction. He founded, wrote for, and edited the weekly journal Household Words and in a series of wildly popular readings of his works, toured Great Britain, Ireland, and America. Dickens began his career as a reporter in the press gallery of the House of Commons, and ended it as the preeminent man of letters of his time. MEET THE AUTHOR Davanna has a life-long love of literature. She is a copy editor and copywriter, writes fiction and poetry, and has a law degree. She lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida. She has three sons, and a Brittany named Jubal. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Charles Dickens married Catherine Hogarth in April of 1836. Their marriage coincided with Dickens' rapid rise as a famous writer. Their first son was born in January of 1837 and around this time, Dickens first conceived the germ of the idea for 'Oliver Twist'. In May of 1837, while living with Charles and Catherine at their new home in Doughty Street, Dickens' sister-in-law, Mary Hogarth collapsed, and died shortly after. Dickens was completely grief stricken. According to many commentators and biographers of Dickens, Mary's inspiration was central to many of his female characters -- particularly those of a saintly, or pure persona. He revisits her death in 'The Old Curiosity Shop' in the death of Little Nell. According to Peter Ackroyd, Dickens wrote that the writing of Little Nell's death '...casts the most horrible shadow upon me, and it is as much as I can do to keep moving at all.'

This issue features presentations of leading international scientists, representatives from key governmental and non-governmental organizations, and others working with programs in the developing world and disadvantaged populations. The presentations describe the goals, existing challenges, and potential approaches to providing evidence-based programs to young children in rural, remote, and poverty stricken areas. Topics covered include: the state of early childhood in low and middle income nations, programs that have shown some success, and innovative research approaches that have been often considered unfeasible in these contexts.

Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in this subject area. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts from that field.
