What is Work?: Gender at the Crossroads of Home, Family, and Business from the Early Modern Era to the Present (International Studies in Social History #30)

by Raffaella Sarti Anna Bellavitis Manuela Martini

Every society throughout history has defined what counts as work and what doesn't. And more often than not, those lines of demarcation are inextricable from considerations of gender. What Is Work? offers a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding labor within the highly gendered realm of household economies. Drawing from scholarship on gender history, economic sociology, family history, civil law, and feminist economics, these essays explore the changing and often contested boundaries between what was and is considered work in different Euro-American contexts over several centuries, with an eye to the ambiguities and biases that have shaped mainstream conceptions of work across all social sectors.

My Mother. Barack Obama. Donald Trump. And the Last Stand of the Angry White Man.: An Autobiography Of America

by Kevin Powell

Written in the tradition of works by Joan Didion, bell hooks, Toni Morrison, and Eve Ensler, a provocative and soul-searching “autobiography of America”—the past, the present, and the future Kevin Powell wants for us all, through the lens and lives of three major figures: his mother, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. Ten short years ago, Barack Obama became president of the United States, and changed the course of history. Ten short years ago, our America was hailed globally as a breathtaking example of democracy, as a rainbow coalition of everyday people marching to the same drum beat. We had finally overcome. But did we? Both the presidencies of Obama and Donald Trump have produced some of the ugliest divides in history: horrific racial murders, non-stop mass shootings, the explosion of attacks on immigrants and on the LGBTQ community, the rise of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, a massive gap between the haves and the have-nots, and legions of women stepping forth to challenge sexual violence—and men—in all forms. In this gripping new collection of thirteen essays, My Mother. Barack Obama. Donald Trump. And the Last Stand of the Angry White Man., Kevin Powell interweaves brutally honest personal stories with the saga of America, then and now. Be it politics, sports, pop culture, hip-hop music, mental health, racism, #MeToo, or his very complicated relationship with his mother, these impassioned essays are not merely a mirror of who we are, but also who and what Powell thinks we ought to be.

Heads of the Colored People: Stories

by Nafissa Thompson-Spires

Calling to mind the best works of Paul Beatty and Junot Díaz, this collection of moving, timely, and darkly funny stories examines the concept of black identity in this so-called post-racial era.A stunning new talent in literary fiction, Nafissa Thompson-Spires grapples with black identity and the contemporary middle class in these compelling, boundary-pushing vignettes. Each captivating story plunges headfirst into the lives of new, utterly original characters. Some are darkly humorous—from two mothers exchanging snide remarks through notes in their kids’ backpacks, to the young girl contemplating how best to notify her Facebook friends of her impending suicide—while others are devastatingly poignant—a new mother and funeral singer who is driven to madness with grief for the young black boys who have fallen victim to gun violence, or the teen who struggles between her upper middle class upbringing and her desire to fully connect with black culture. Thompson-Spires fearlessly shines a light on the simmering tensions and precariousness of black citizenship. Her stories are exquisitely rendered, satirical, and captivating in turn, engaging in the ongoing conversations about race and identity politics, as well as the vulnerability of the black body. Boldly resisting categorization and easy answers, Nafissa Thompson-Spires is an original and necessary voice in contemporary fiction.

Transparency: Seeing Through to Our Expanded Human Capacity

A groundbreaking book with an inside-out view of personal transformation and the path to everyday enlightenment by letting go of the clutter, defense, and fears to instead focus on building the courage to be honest, vulnerable, authentic, and super-clear.Following the bestsellers The Intuitive Way, Frequency, and Leap of Perception, Transparency is the next book in Penney Peirce’s award-winning, visionary series of guidebooks on personal and societal transformation. Timely and revolutionary, Penney shows us how to let go of everything that gets in our way—the obstacles, clutter, and fears—to truly achieve greater authenticity, clarity of purpose, and feelings of belonging and joy. By transforming our opaque reality into a state of transparency, the dividing lines that fragment and isolate us melt away and all that’s left is the true self—connecting us to everything and everyone. Transparency helps you learn that when you’re transparent, there is great power in being seen for all of who you are. Secrets, lies, and hiding are no longer functional. Honesty, simplicity, compassion, and true humility produce genius. And, when you’re transparent, you’re empowered to see through situations that blind and confuse others. It’s as though you suddenly have Superman’s X-ray vision, and this enables you to reach just-right solutions, insights, and develop your ability to “see through,” so your intuition can skyrocket. Prescriptive, accessible, and thought-provoking, Transparency aims to help you identify your soul-blocking habits, find the insights being masked, and return these negative patterns back into the clear light of the unified field. Each piece of clutter dissolved, understood, and released creates greater transparency, opening us to experience our true selves and all the joys of life.
