The Fortune Cookie Chronicles

Jennifer Lee
Authors:
Jennifer Lee

If you think McDonald's is the most ubiquitous restaurant experience in America, consider that there are more Chinese restaurants in America than McDonalds, Burger Kings, and Wendys combined. New York Times reporter and Chinese-American (or American-born Chinese). In her search, Jennifer 8 Lee traces the history of Chinese-American experience through the lens of the food. In a compelling blend of sociology and history, Jenny Lee exposes the indentured servitude Chinese restaurants expect from illegal immigrant chefs, investigates the relationship between Jews and Chinese food, and weaves a personal narrative about her own relationship with Chinese food. The Fortune Cookie Chronicles speaks to the immigrant experience as a whole, and the way it has shaped America

People In Vogue

Robin Muir, Robin Derrick
Authors:
Robin Muir, Robin Derrick

The archives of British Vogue define modern portraiture. Its collection remains the essential barometer of the social and cultural changes of the last century. So, portrayed here are the great, the good, and, frequently, the infamous too. PEOPLE IN VOGUE provides an insight into those who, through talent, beauty, personality or an alchemical combination of all three, set a stamp on their age. From life-enhancers to the great catalysts of change. Princesses and pop stars. Models, writers and actors. Architects and designers. Society beauties and style dictators. Scientists and world leaders. They all appear here, fixed in their time by the 20th-century's leading photographers: Hoppe, Baron de Meyer, Horst, Beaton, Steichen, Snowdon, Parkinson, Bailey, Newton, Weber, Knight, Teller, Testino and others. A commentary accompanies each picture, describing the subject and their allure (or notoriety) in terms of their era, circumstance and lifestyle, frequently with the reactions of Vogue's critics and commentators. PEOPLE IN VOGUE is a unique modern archive of a century and beyond -- as stunningly produced as the people within its pages.

Feminist Philosophy

Katharina Vester, Herta Nagl-Docekal
Authors:
Katharina Vester, Herta Nagl-Docekal

Are we in a post-feminist era? Has the term, feminist, grown out of its resisted stance? What from today's standpoint is an appropriate concept of feminist philosophy? And is it not the case that all people thinking democratically must share its central concern? In Feminist Philosophy , internationally acclaimed philosopher Herta Nagl-Docekal discusses and critiques the theories of today. Her study ranges across philosophical anthropology, aesthetics, philosophy of science, the critique of reason, political theory, and philosophy of law. Feminist Philosophy confronts the entire field with the problem of the hierarchical relations of the sexes. Throughout her work, Nagl-Docekal affirms the importance of feminist thought as she presses for new approaches to common problems.

Spoiled Rotten

Arthur Fleisher, Brian Goff, Fleischer Goff
Authors:
Arthur Fleisher, Brian Goff, Fleischer Goff

According to commonly repeated reports, wages and personal incomes have stagnated in the U.S. over the last twenty-five years for average Americans. A corollary argument asserts that the combination of flat living standards for the masses and rising standards for a privileged few have created a number of social ills. Spoiled Rotten presents a simple and contradictory argument: properly measured standards of material well-being have grown for practically all U.S. residents over the last twenty-five years, and this fantastic growth is responsible for a variety of negative social consequences.In developing their ideas about wealth and its influence, Goff and Fleisher look for grass-roots explanations. The problems the authors attribute to the growth in wealth include employment issues such as job selection and security, family issues such as illegitimacy and divorce, rising crime trends, educational issues such as sluggish SAT scores, and others. Further, the authors discuss how wealth has allowed Americans to create problems out of thin air, including many of the supposed environmental dangers, health care expenditures, and safety regulation.Given appropriate space are wealth's many beneficial contributions to social issues. These benefits lead into the authors' final analysis in the book: what to do about wealth's negative effects without destroying its positive impacts?

My Inside Story: David Shelley, CEO

I grew up living above an antiquarian bookshop, which my parents ran, so I guess books were always in my blood. From a young age I was a voracious reader, and there was never any question in my mind that I wanted my career to involve books and reading.
