My high school history students are doing research papers on a variety of topics - the point being to teach research and writing skills so they might as well learn about something they are personally interested in.... Anyway, their chosen topics include some subjects on which our school and local public libraries do not have current books, if any at all. If you have anything on these subjects, please PM me! Thank you very much. NO DEALS NEEDED - just need current books on these topics. Thanks! LInda
rap / hiphop music history
Microsoft and Bill Gates
soccer history (not how to play but how game and world cup got started)
stem cell research
history of bread (two books on my WL - surprised to find any had been written!)
pirates in history (not movies)
history of video games
social mores/unwritten rules of society
football history (how game, college leagues and NFL got started)
Hi Linda - I know you don't need a deal but you're welcome to a 2 for one on anything that might be of use to you. I know there are some business books on my shelf and whatever else you can find. Hope this works for you!
I have an old copy of Miss Manners Guide to Excruciatingly correct behavior - good for the unwritten rules history. It's dated - published I think in 1979 - but a lot is still applicable, and it's easy to read and reference. I'll put it on my bookshelf
I happen to work in a lab that does some stem cell research, and I can tell you that there aren't really any books that are current - the field moves too quickly. If your student is interested in the more established stem cell research in mice, there might be some things, but if he/she is looking for info on human stem cells, I think he/she is going to need to look for journal articles, not books. If you think your student is up for doing a journal literature search (which is a lot harder), PM me and I might be able to guide her/him in the right direction.
