James Levin, a member of the College of Education graduate faculty and director of advising for the Eberly College of Science, and James F. Nolan, associate professor of education, have produced the third edition of their book Principles Of Classroom Management: A Professional Decision-Making Model, published by Allyn and Bacon.

The third edition moves beyond its predecessors by emphasizing relationship-building as critical in managing student behavior and creating a learning environment where students can thrive.

McGraw-Hill recently published the second edition of a textbook by Stephen R. Turns, professor of mechanical engineering. The book, An Introduction to Combustion: Concepts and Applications, serves as a comprehensive introductory text on combustion for undergraduates and first-year graduate-level students. The text presents basic combustion concepts using easy-to-understand analyses and introduces a variety of practical applications that motivate or relate to the various theoretical concepts. The new edition includes updated information, expanded chapters, new problems and additional examples. The book also comes with revised computer software and is now Microsoft Windows compatible.
