Ron Aharoni. Arithmetic for Parents.
A book for grownups about children's mathematics
Several years ago Ron Aharoni, Technion,
accepted his friend's invitation to teach mathematics in elementary school.
Since then he devoted much of his time to primary mathematics education.
Aharoni played a major role in a successful fight against "fuzzy math"
in his country, and
in the implementation of a competent, no-frills curriculum (based on
Primary Math from Singapore). In this book, he shares with the reader
-- a parent, or a teacher -- the insights he gained concerning elementary
mathematics and mathematical education.

Marina Tsvetaeva. To You -- in 10 Decades
Selected Russian Poetry Rendered in English
This new arrival (available at Sumizdat.org and
is a joint work of Alexander Givental and Elysee Wilson-Egolf. It includes poetry by Marina Tsvetaeva,
with contributions by Bella Akhmadulina and Arseny Tarkovsky, and commentaries in English.
Her poetry's the fruit of passion. So is this book of side-by-side translations from the pliant Russian into the English
tongue. We tried not simply to preserve the music, rhyme, rhythm, meter, gist, or gems, but all of the above, refusing to
compromise - a stance that stems from love for the expressions of that fascinating act of Nature called M. Tsvetaeva. This love,
together with the sense of grandeur of the phenomenon in view, are what we hope to spark in you.
