"In this ambitious book, Cusset reframes the often misunderstood genre that celebrates what Casanova calls "the present enjoyment of the senses." She contends libertine works are not, as is commonly thought, characterized by the preaching of sexual pleasure but are instead linked by an "ethics of pleasure" that teaches readers that vanity and sensual enjoyment are part of their moral being. Developing Roland Barthes's concept of "the pleasure of the text," the author argues that the novel is a powerful vehicle for moral lessons, more so that philosophical or moral treatises, because it conveys such lessons through pleasure."

The economy has collapsed, Earth's population has been reduced to practically nothing and the world is split between two factions- The National and the Forgotten. 80 years ago the worst war in human history began. 10 years ago it ended. At least that's what the history books say. But everyone knows; history books lie. The war never ended. It's still going; there just aren't enough people alive anymore to dispute it. My name is Kalina. My father is chief of my people, the Forgotten. The rebel scum, you may know us as. Pirates and swindlers. But we're not. We're just people fi ghting together to make a stand against injustice. Making a stand for our freedom. It's not that simple though; freedom and justice. Who chooses what is and what isn't right? Who chooses who lives and who dies? Someone once asked me, who are we to stop a war? I ask you, who are we not to?

Teachers are at times overwhelmed by the cultural disparities between themselves and their students, the environmental deterrents to learning, and the degree of learning deficiencies they are asked to help students to overcome. How can educators communicate state and national objectives to a streetwise, inner-city youth in a way that he feels inspired to buy into them? How do they establish a pleasing interchange that draws a troubled child toward learning goals that are not within his frame of reference? No Tomorrow addresses these problems. It replaces shoptalk and generic theories with actual scenarios, tested strategies and learning activities. These are tools that Dr. Delaney and his colleagues developed and implemented during his three decades as a classroom teacher, administrator, and staff developer. Hence, this book is a collection of ideas and inspiration that can help the teacher create an academic atmosphere where no student needs to feel left behind. It also provides an “attitude self-check” that helps teachers determine if their personal views are promoting or impeding learning or, even worse, precipitating a crisis. His holistic, student-centered approach has proven effective in the most hostile classrooms in the state of Georgia. Teachers will recognize problems and remediations that affirm their own challenges and triumphs. The methods discussed are not prescriptive and not meant to be a touchstone for accomplished teaching. They are, however, a fountain of ideas from which fellow educators are invited to draw inspiration.
