Unflattening

Nick Sousanis’ *Unflattening* (Harvard University Press, 2015) is scholarship presented as a comic. By combining examples from a variety of disciplines–science, literature, mathematics, art, and more–from antiquity to the present day, Sousanis argues against the type of flatness exemplified by the two dimensional characters in Edwin A. Abbott’s *Flatland* (1884) who cannot understand the concept of “upward.” In a very accessible book, Sousanis encourages readers to see past their own boundaries. The book is particularly relevant to both educators and students.

    4. Dear Lao, Actually, the Cuban ambassador thanked him at the time for his service in keeping a lot of annoyed folk reined in. His presence was pounced on by 9very) interested parties and the party becaem that he was leading the charge, as it were. As usual, facts are the first casualty. Someone here must remember why it was exactly that he did jail time; was it trumped up in the wake this episode?

  3. ogging, mining, and other resource extraction-dependent communities across the globe have experienced fluctuations in their standards of living (Harris et al., 1998). Many of these communities, having lost their primary source of income and industry due to tightened restrictions and a general transition in the status quo for resource extraction industries, also have diminished resident population sizes. In some cases, otherwise vibrant and healthy towns and cities have all but disappeared. In other cases, communities have exploded from the establishment of a lucrative resource extraction industry, although recent examples of this are few compared to historical trends (Humphries, et al. 2012)
