 Summary Review of the Literature
This summary review of the literature synthesizes the current state-of-the-art in parent and community involvement; looks at the programs, practices, and their effects in the research and practice literature, especially since 1980; and ends with implications, conclusions and recommendations for research.
The literature on middle grade (i.e., Grades 4 through 8) parent and community involvement programs and practices is highlighted throughout this review since activities in the middle grades are less well-developed and understood than those for earlier grades.
The conceptual framework proposed for this study indicated three areas of interest: the context of parent and community involvement programs; the roles that parents, families, and community members assume in the education of their children; and the effects of promising programs on parents, students, school staff, schools, and school districts.

 Literature Review on Reaction Time
Welford (1980), Laming (1968) and Sanders (1998) observed that when there are several types of stimuli, reaction time will be faster where there is a 'run' of several identical stimuli than when the different types of stimuli appear in mixed order.
Brebner and Welford (1980) report that fingers tremble up and down at the rate of 8-10 cycles/sec, and reaction times are faster if the reaction occurs when the finger is already on the 'downswing' part of the tremor.
Welford (1980) found that physically fit subjects had faster reaction times, and both Levitt and Gutin (1971) and Sjoberg (1975) showed that subjects had the fastest reaction times when they were exercising sufficiently to produce a heartrate of 115 beats per minute.

Literature of Liberty: A Review of Contemporary Liberal Thought was published first by the Cato Institute (1978-1979) and later by the Institute for Humane Studies (1980-1982) under the editorial direction of Leonard P. Liggio.
Literature of Liberty, published quarterly by the Institute for Humane Studies, is an interdisciplinary periodical intended to be a resource to the scholarly community.
Although these two issues are intimately intertwined in the revisionist literature, and also in the counter-revisionist work which that literature inevitably triggered, it will prove expeditious to examine the two arguments separately, as the commentators tended to diverge on the two as the debate wore on.

 Polish Literature in English Translation
Because there is some variation in how "literature" is defined, and because the issue of who is "Polish" is one that could be hotly contested, there may be some disagreements both among browsers of this list and between browsers and me about the appropriate solutions to these issues.
Along with the prose fiction, playscripts, and poems that represent the three primary genres of writing that have tended to be identified with "literature" over the past two centuries, I've included letters, diaries, and personal essays, both by people with an established literary reputation and by those who didn't necessarily intend their writing for publication.
At this point, I've decided to restrict the list to authors who were born in what was considered Polish national or cultural territory at the time of their birth AND who--except for pre-17th century authors writing in Latin--wrote at least some of their works in the Polish language.

Drahomanov's "study of Ukrainian folk literature had a deep influence on the development of his political ideas", says Rudnytsky while, on the other hand, "the direction taken by his scholarly researches was often motivated by his political interests, as in the case of the analysis of the social and political content of folk poetry".

 1979 - 80 Literature Electives Survey   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
Other reasons for a course's popularity are its relevance to contemporary life (e.g., children's literature); its accessibility, which sometimes means its contemporaneity (science fiction) and sometimes its lack of sophisticated reading matter (film); its cultural familiarity (Bible as literature); its nontraditional structure (women in literature); and its cultural import (Shakespeare).
Needless to say, the study of literature for literature's sake is not a motivating force to undergraduates electing literature courses in 1980, if indeed it ever was.
About half of the respondents noted that literature sections had declined recently, about a quarter said that literature offerings were holding steady, a very few mentioned that interest in writing seemed to be stimulating interest in literature as well, while the remainder did not discuss the effect of writing courses on literature offerings.
