New in October

This month, from the new titles list ....

Videogames and education / Harry J. Brown.

"Videogames and education are not necessarily antithetical. In this mind-expanding work, Harry J. Brown shows how videogames have become a powerful form of political, ethical, and religious discourse that influences the way we teach, learn, and create. He traces the major trends in game design, the public controversies surrounding videogames, and the major positions in game criticism. The book speaks to thoughtful educators, parents, and players who seek a fuller understanding of this cultural phenomenon."--BOOK JACKET.
