As part of a two-year project commemorating the most influential books on education of the 20th century, the University of South Carolina-based Museum of Education has published a handsome catalog giving synopses, excerpts, and other information on the 65 books chosen by a panel of experts. ("Some Books of the Century," Dec. 15, 1999.)

The 141-page publication is meant to be more than a conventional book catalog, says the museum's curator, Craig Kridel, who compares its effect to "a leisurely walk—a stroll—through a museum of education."

The project has included exhibits on the books and their authors—from Booker T. Washington's Up From Slavery and the works of John Dewey to Theodore R. Sizer's Horace's Compromise as well as online discussions and other presentations.

Further information on Books of the Century Catalog is available at [email protected].

The Council for Basic Education has published its first electronic book. Reclaiming the Legacy: In Defense of Liberal Education, written by the education analyst Denis P. Doyle and former Xerox Corp. CEO David T. Kearns, is available exclusively at the council's World Wide Web site: Organized in what the CBE describes as a "user- friendly format," the book may be downloaded for printing by chapter or to save on a diskette.

A quarterly journal promising to "take America's education establishment to task for its many failures and offer constructive alternatives" has been launched in Houston. The inaugural issue of the Texas Education Review features an article by Manhattan Institute fellow Jay P. Greene, who serves on the editorial advisory board, along with David Horowitz, the president of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, and others.

The summer issue, published in late August, will examine the education record of Gov. George W. Bush of Texas.
