Publishing Note: "On Education"

A new, brief treatise on education ("On Education") is now available on Academia.edu:
Education is a cornerstone of societal development, yet it has long since become maligned and attacked in the guise of reforms. To understand that which is now mocked, derided, and attacked, education -- both conceptually and practically -- must be considered and explored. Only after understanding the principles of education can necessary preparations and reforms for the future of education be made.

Note: this is part of a series, "Recommended Reading," published monthly as a collection of longform, academic, or journalistic works well worth the time to read them. These are drawn through my own readings related to the field, as well as the more interesting/applicable readings from my coursework at PSU. I receive no benefit -- financial or otherwise -- through the recommendations and/or links provided.  The format used is simple title-link, due to the volume and effort required to properly format them in more scholarly forms.  Links are not endorsements; they also don't always open in new windows:  be sure to click carefully.  (Full disclaimer.)

Publishing Note: "Metropolitan Terrors: The Continued Relevance of the Mumbai Attacks"

A new (brief) paper on the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks ("Metropolitan Terrors: The Continued Relevance of the Mumbai Attacks") is now available on Academia.edu.
The November 26, 2008 terror attack on Mumbai only reinforced the lessons of September 11, 2001: nowhere is truly safe from the modern and pervasive terror threat. By choosing to target the Indian metropolitan city of Mumbai and, more specifically, high-profile locations, the perpetrators -- Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani-nationalist and Islamist terror group -- the world was reminded that terrorism respects no geopolitical boundaries, social or cultural distinctions, or even the difference between civilian and combatant. In what has been called India’s 9/11, the world saw, once more, what a few dedicated, trained, and methodical individuals can do in a public setting with some basic weaponry. By understanding and briefly reviewing the details of this inherently terrifying event -- seven years following 9/11 and, now, seven years past -- parallels may be drawn to the present.
