An eBook short.What does "feminism" mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay--adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name--by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century--one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences--in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad--offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author's exploration of what it means to be a woman today--and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Fred and Augie Duesenberg were a pair of driven, determined, nomadic masterminds. And to them, the automotive world will forever owe a great debt of gratitude. It took many years, and their achievements were hardly overnight successes, but eventually the brother created the ultimate in automotive engineering: the fabulous Duesenberg. Few were made, and only a relative handful remain. The Duesenbergs of the 1920s and '30s were so remarkable that they had little competition. With the help of E.I.Cord's fearless leadership and financial backing, the brilliant coachwork of the world's greatest bodybuilders, and Fred Duesenberg's mechanical genius, no two Duesenbergs were outfitted the same, and none have ever been truly rivaled. In Duesenberg, Dennis Adler has compiled the ultimate written and pictorial history of the car that was corrected billed as "The World's Finest Motor Car."
Prometheus Bound is the starkest and strangest of the classic Greek tragedies, a play in which god and man are presented as radically, irreconcilably at odds. It begins with the shock of hammer blows as the Titan Prometheus is shackled to a rock in the Caucasus. This is his punishment for giving the gift of fire to humankind and for thwarting Zeus's decision to exterminate the human race. Prometheus's pain is unceasing, but he refuses to recant his commitment to humanity, to whom he has also brought the knowledge of writing, mathematics, medicine, and architecture. He hints that he knows how Zeus will be brought low in the future, but when Hermes demands that Prometheus divulge his secret, he refuses and is sent spinning into the abyss by a divine thunderbolt. To whom does humanity look for guidance: to the supreme deity or to the rebel Titan? What law controls the cosmos? Prometheus Bound, one of the great poetic achievements of the ancient world, appears here in a splendid new translation by Joel Agee that does full justice to the harsh and keening music of the original Greek.
