Basic Books Edward Frenkel Love and Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality October 2013 • Mathematics/Memoir • 288 pages • World Rights: Basic Books; Japanese: Bungeishunju; Italian: Codice; Turkish: Paloma Yayinevi “A fascinating peek into the author’s life and work.” —Kirkus Reviews “Frenkel reveals the joy of pure intellectual discovery in this autobiographical story of determination, passion, and the Langlands program.... Frenkel’s gusto will draw readers into his own quest, pursuing the deepest realities of mathematics as if it were ‘a giant jigsaw puzzle, in which no one knows what the final image is going to look like.’” —Publisher’s Weekly “Fascinating ... By using analogies, [Frenkel] describes concepts such as symmetries, dimensions, and Riemann surfaces in a way that will enable nonmathematicians to understand them. Whether or not readers develop a love for math, they will get a glimpse of the love that Frenkel has for the subject. Recommended for all readers, math whizzes or not, inclined to be interested in the subject.” —Library Journal “If you’re not a mathematician this book might make you become one. And if you are a mathematician you will feel better about your profession.” —Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan and Antifragile Robert Martin How We Do It: The Evolution and Future of Human Reproduction May 2013 • Biology • 400 pages • World Rights: Basic Books “[An] amiable information tour through the evolutionary history of mating, pregnancy, birth, and babies ... an intelligent, open-minded guide to the animal processes that somehow seem to make us most fully human.” —Boston Globe “Mr. Martin’s humble but crucial acknowledgment that biology is unavoidably complicated—that we can’t capture millennia of evolution or decades of research in glib sayings about the sexes’ planetary origins or in single surveys of psychology undergraduates—is what makes How We Do It so compelling.... No Mars and Venus, no extrapolations about why we evolved to love—or hate—strip clubs or whether bottlefeeding dooms a child to a life of puerile amusements and a career at the Kwik-E-Mart. Here instead are the facts of life as you may have never thought about them.” —Wall Street Journal “Biological anthropologist Robert Martin wields decades of research to get at the evolutionary facts and inform people’s reproductive decisions.... Fascinating detours abound—such as the successful, and sensitive, toilet training of six-month-old babies by Kenya’s Digo people.”—Nature “This fascinating, comprehensive look at human evolution raises important questions about what everything from bottle-fed babies to assisted reproduction means for the future of the species.... A must-read for anyone interested in human evolution.” —Booklist

Basic Books Douglas Hofstadter and Emmanuel Sander Surfaces and Essences: Analogy as the Fuel and Fire of Thinking April 2013 • Science • 592 pages • World Rights: Basic Books; French: Odile Jacob; Dutch: Contact; German: Klett-Cotta; Korean: Books 21 Publishing Group; Chinese (Simpl): Cheers Publishing; Hungarian: Typotex “[F]irst rate popular science: difficult but rewarding.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Knowing what makes a duck a bird and what makes a plane not a bird may not seem like very profound mental feats—but Douglas Hofstadter and Emmanuel Sander see such cognitive connections as part of an extraordinarily profound process.... The book’s most persuasive section involves the physics of the early 20th century, as the authors focus on the thought processes of Albert Einstein, whom they label an ‘analogizer extraordinaire.’ Be prepared to become hyper-conscious of the myriad of analogies one makes every moment of every day.... The end result is a book that is ambitious and provocative.” —Globe and Mail (Canada) “Hofstadter and Sander tear through the misperceptions, demonstrating the astonishing conceptual power of analogies—manifest when mathematicians venture from real to imaginary numbers, when physicists leap from photons to vector bosons.... Surprisingly, only analogies enable us to recognize deep essences behind surface appearances and to weigh competing options in national policy or personal life. Readers do confront the risks of false and stereotypical analogies, but soon realize that analogymaking is the pilot light of creativity—and essential for adapting to a changing world. A revelatory foray into the dynamics of the mind.” —Booklist Online (starred review) “I am one of those cognitive scientists who believe that analogy is a key to explaining human intelligence. This magnum opus by Douglas Hofstadter, who has reflected on the nature of analogy for decades, and Emmanuel Sander, is a milestone in our understanding of human thought, filled with insights and new ideas.” —Steven Pinker, author of How the Mind Works and The Stuff of Thought Shibley Telhami The World Through Arab Eyes: Arab Public Opinion and the Reshaping of the Middle East June 2013 • History • 272 pages • World Rights: Basic Books “America’s leading interpreter of the Arab world, always judicious in his judgments and penetrating in his analysis, has written a book that every American concerned with the challenges that American foreign policy faces in the Middle East should read.” —Zbigniew Brzezinski “Not since Edward Said’s Orientalism has a scholar so effectively distilled the Arab collective self and its complex relations to ‘the others,’ as Shibley Telhami has in The World Through Arab Eyes. Unlike hundreds of speculative books written about Arabs and Muslims since 9/11, Telhami has meticulously managed to get the Arabs to tell their stories in facts and figures—providing crisp analysis along the way. The book is a must read for students, scholars, policy makers, and anyone interested in the Middle East.” —Saad Eddin Ibrahim, Egyptian sociologist and human rights activist “[Telhami’s] closing chapter on how Arab public opinion will influence the reshaping of the Middle East is the best summary of the likely implications of the current awakening and activation of Arab public opinion that I have seen to date, blending the hard facts of public attitudes with the unpredictable nature of political and social change.” —Rami G. Khouri, Daily Star (Lebanon)

Basic Books Sally Satel, MD, and Scott O. Lilienfeld, PhD Brainwashed: How We Are Seduced by Mindless Neuroscience June 2013 • Neuroscience • 320 pages World Rights: Basic Books; Dutch: Scriptim “Dr. Satel and Dr. Lilienfeld offer a methodical critique of this oversimplified neurononsense, convincingly arguing that in many ways the M.R.I.’s of today are simply the phrenology heads of yesteryear, laughably primitive attempts to wrangle human character and behavior into tractable form.” —New York Times “The intrepid outsider needs expert guidance through this rocky terrain—and there’s no better place to start than Brainwashed by Sally Satel and Scott O. Lilienfeld. Satel, a practising psychiatrist, and Lilienfeld, a clinical psychologist, are terrific sherpas. They are clear-sighted, considered and forgiving of the novice’s ignorance.” —New Scientist “In a witty but no-hold-barred book, the authors skewer the ridiculous claims of those who tell us that brain imaging can unlock the secrets of the mind.... Brainwashed explains why we must be skeptical and accept that, if anything, brain research has revealed just how much further we have to go.” —BBC Focus “This thoughtful, provocative book provides a needed counterbalance to the arrogant neuromythology that purports to explain all of human behavior through brain imaging. It makes a strong moral argument that we are, ultimately, creatures of choice who can exercise will; it grapples boldly with a science that has sometimes threatened our understanding of what it is to be human.” —Andrew Solomon “An authoritative, fascinating argument for the centrality of mind in what, doubtless prematurely, has been called the era of the brain.” —Peter D. Kramer Douglas Kenrick and Vladas Griskevicius The Rational Animal: How Evolution Made Us Smarter Than We Think September 2013 • Science/Cognitive Science • 256 pages • World Rights: Basic Books “The Rational Animal is a fun romp through the comedy of human errors. Again and again, the authors find, evolutionary urges and hardwired brains explain behaviors rational economists cannot. Humans just don't make sense, it seems, unless you expect them not to.”—Mother Jones “A persuasive—and entertaining—look at the Darwinian dynamics of decision making.” —Booklist “Why do we overspend, underinvest, and make seemingly poor decisions? The Rational Animal shows that the answer comes from a simple, but often overlooked place: Our animal ancestors. Whether we like it or not, evolution has shaped who we are today. But rather than making us foolishly irrational, looking deeper inside ourselves reveals a surprisingly brilliant beast.”—Jonah Berger, author of Contagious: Why Things Catch on “Vigorously investigated…Sharp, piquant science/behavioral-economics writing.” —Kirkus Reviews “The Rational Animal is so persuasive that it could convince an ardent Wall Street economist to throw away his copy of Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations and replace it with Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species.”—Noah J. Goldstein, UCLA Anderson School of Management, and coauthor of Yes! 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to be Persuasive

Basic Books Raj Raghunathan, PhD If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy? The Surprising Path from Career Success to Life Success Most scientists and thinkers agree that happiness is among the most important goals in a person’s life. So why then aren’t smart, successful people happy? In his book If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy? Raj Raghunathan, PhD, who studies theories from psychology, behavioral sciences, decision theory, and marketing to explain interrelationships between affect and consumption behavior, argues that smarts and success can actually obstruct the path to feeling truly happy. Using his own original research and a series of stories, he explores why intelligent people aren’t as happy as they could be. Raghunathan discusses the three needs that routinely distract people from happiness: the need for importance, the need to be loved, and the need for control. He also explains how beliefs about various issues, such as how to make the best decisions, how much to trust others, and the relationship between goals and emotions, have a negative influence on happiness and what can be done about this. Raghunathan examines the various definitions of happiness and which definition is “best” for maximizing it. Finally, he explores the common misconceptions of individuals that happiness is fleeting and the search for it shallow. • Raj Raghunathan, PhD, is associate professor at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business and one of the most popular bloggers for Psychology Today. He serves on the editorial board of Journal of Marketing and Journal of Consumer Psychology.

Now he’s telling us the risks of allowing technology to transform our economy and culture. In the spirit of Evgeny Morozov’s To Save Everything, Click Here and Sherry Turkle’s Alone Together, Ford argues that all these nifty artificially intelligent devices are not just on the cusp of making “good” jobs obsolete, they are already doing it. A computer wins Jeopardy—big deal, right? Well, no: the same technology is making paralegals obsolete as it undertakes electronic discovery, and it will soon make radiologists obsolete too. And that, no doubt, will only be the beginning. Rise of the Robots focuses on structural unemployment and inequality resulting from accelerating progress in artificial intelligence, robotics, and other forms of job automation. In no way antitechnology or antiprogress, Ford calls on us to consider adapting our economic system to the new realities brought on by advancing technology and proposes pragmatic solutions along those lines. Sure to cause a stir, this is a must-read for the economic, political, and technological circles. • Martin Ford has worked in Silicon Valley in finance at a hightechnology company and founded several successful small software design firms. He is recognized as one of a very small number of experts who has invested significant thought in, and produced a substantial body of writing on, the subject of technological unemployment and its implications and possible solutions.

Basic Books Jacob Soll The Reckoning: Accountability and the Rise and Fall of Nations A crucial tool in the art of statecraft, accounting can be used to create a stable financial system or abused by power-hungry politicians. In this 600-year history of finance and political accountability, author Jacob Soll explores the fundamental role accounting has played in the rise and fall of powerful companies, states, and empires. From the powerful Medici Bank to the Dutch bookkeepers in the 17th century, the birth of public accounting in 19th-century England, and the stock market crash of 1929, Soll traces accounting’s intricate relationship with politics to show both its successes and its failures and the lessons we can learn years later. With rigorous research and contemporary applications, The Reckoning offers an invaluable historical perspective on current economic issues. • Jacob Soll is professor of history at Rutgers University. He earned a DEA (1993) from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and a PhD (1998) from Magdalene College, Cambridge University. He has lectured at Princeton University and held visiting scholarships at the National Library of Portugal, Lisbon, and Trinity College, Cambridge, and the Fernand Braudel Professorship at the European University Institute in Fiesole. Soll is author of The Information Master: JeanBaptiste Colber’s Secret State Intelligence System and Publishing The Prince: History, Reading, and the Birth of Political Criticism, which won the Jacques Barzun Prize from the American Philosophical Society. He was just awarded the 2011 MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant and won a 2009 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Book Forum, American Historical Review, Journal of Modern History, and New Republic. Soll speaks French, Italian, and Portuguese.

With their phenomenal powers to accumulate and analyze information, then manage the actions and judgments of employees, CBEs are as central to the information economy as Henry Ford’s Detroit plants once were to the economy of mass production, and whether we know it or not, they are a part of our lives in many different ways. But as corporations have yielded more and more decision making to these systems, they have been eroding employee freedoms, autonomies, and skills that have marked off the white-collar, middle-class workplace from its industrial counterparts, bringing down salaries and causing a slide toward poverty. As use of these systems grows, they move further into replacing human decision making—and Head shows how some of these changes have been disastrous in places like Wall Street and Iraq. This is truly the first exploration of CBSs for a trade audience and is as important as it is clear-sighted. • Simon Head is a fellow at the Rothermere American Institute at Oxford and a senior fellow at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University. His first (scholarly) book, The New Ruthless Economy, received rave reviews from a variety of prominent publications, including the New York Review of Books and the Los Angeles Times. Richard Sennett of the London School of Economics wrote, “Simon Head has written a disturbing and brilliant analysis of what ails the modern economy.” He is also a past US correspondent for the New Statesman of London and Indo-China correspondent for the Financial Times.

Basic Books Donald A. Norman The Design of Everyday Things, Revised and Expanded “Design may be our top competitive edge. This book is a joy—fun and of the utmost importance.” —Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious—even liberating—book, lies not in ourselves but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The Design of Everyday Things shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time. In this entertaining and insightful analysis, cognitive scientist Donald A. Norman hails excellence of design as the most important key to regaining the competitive edge in influencing consumer behavior. Now fully expanded and updated, with a new introduction by the author, The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful primer on how—and why—some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them. • Donald A. Norman is cofounder of the Nielsen Norman Group, an executive consulting firm that helps companies produce human-centered products and services. He is Breed Professor of Design Emeritus at Northwestern University and professor emeritus at the University of California, San Diego, where he was founding chair of the Department of Cognitive Science and chair of the Department of Psychology. He has served as vice president of Apple Computer’s Advanced Technology Group. His many books include Emotional Design, The Design of Future Things, and, most recently, Living with Complexity.

But what if the traditional measure of global status—empire, economic muscle, and a powerful military—are no longer as important as they once were? In The Upside of Down, Charles Kenny argues that no longer being number one may actually be in America’s best interest. America’s so-called decline is only in relation to the advancement of other countries. Other nations are getting ahead, and that’s a good thing. A wealthier world will inevitably provide great benefits for the G8 as well as for the citizens of newly prosperous countries. Wealthier countries tend to produce the kinds of big innovations that dramatically improve quality of life for everyone regardless of national boundaries, and global, social, and demographic trends indicate that the G8 countries will be able to import more educated workers, thereby dramatically improving their own productivity. A refreshing rejoinder to the prophets of decline, The Upside of Down offers a solidly grounded and highly optimistic look at the future of a wealthier world. • Charles Kenny is a well-known World Bank economist. His writing has appeared in outlets ranging from Time magazine and Washington Monthly to South China Morning Post and Foreign Policy, where he is a contributing editor. He’s been interviewed on Fox Business News and ABC Radio Network’s John Batchelor Show, among other national outlets. Foreign Affairs hailed his previous book, Getting Better, as a “Best Book of 2011,” and David Leonhardt of the New York Times chose it as one of his top five books of the year. In the Wall Street Journal, Bill Gates (who wrote the introduction to the paperback edition) called the book “elegant and deeply researched.” December 2013 • Business and Economics • 240 pages World Rights: Basic Books

Basic Books Scott Weems Ha! The Science of When We Laugh and Why Slapstick humor, sardonic wit, raunchy wordplay—we all have our favorite jokes, the knee-slappers that make us laugh until we cry. But why is humor so different across individuals, age groups, and even cultures? And what instills punch lines with their particular magic? Recent advances in understanding the brain have generated compelling new theories on the psychological processes that regulate humor—once dismissed as too subjective to be effectively studied. In Ha!, cognitive neuroscientist Scott Weems leads us on a unique exploration of comedy, revealing how the distributed complexity of our brains results in laughter when we try to entertain two conflicting ideas at once. In other words, humans are wired to experience pleasure at the unexpected, and we laugh when we are surprised. What’s more, the anterior cingulate, our brain’s conflict detector and an area enlarged in those with strong secular and liberal beliefs, is activated by humor; computers can be taught to tell jokes; and superiority humor, which mocks stereotypes, can actually bring groups together. This lively, extensively researched work delves into how humor defines our very humanity and sheds light on consciousness, identifying the ways in which laughter can boost health, improve psychological well-being, and even enhance our professional lives. • Scott Weems, a researcher at the University of Maryland, has a PhD in cognitive neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles. He specializes in the neuroscience of behavior and language and has worked on a number of projects examining language storage in the brain as it pertains to laughter.

Sometimes our forecasts go awry, of course. But often our astonishing ability to predict helps us navigate our complex physical, social, and emotional environments. In this fascinating book, Matthew Hertenstein unpacks the secrets of our predictive abilities and shows how we can hone those abilities to become better judges of people and situations. The Tell is one of the year’s essential reads.”—Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human, Drive, and A Whole New Mind “Some of the most important decisions you make in life could be improved by taking advantage of the information contained in the hidden clues that, unknown to you, surround you every day. In this lively and informative book, Matthew Hertenstein will show you how to find those clues and use them to improve your understanding of the world around you.”—Sam Gosling, author of Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You “Prepare to be amazed. Research psychologist Matthew Hertenstein reveals stunning discoveries of how mere glimpses of behavior—infant reactivity, portrait smiles, physical energy, facial width and symmetry, height, nonverbal microbehaviors, and more—can foretell one’s future personality, risk of divorce, sexual orientation, longevity, income, psychopathology, lies, and success. The grand result: a science of people prediction, or (dare I say) a scientific basis for some authentic fortune telling.”—David G.

[Ungifted] introduces the reader to the world of intelligence testing in a highly literate style and pulls back the curtain on some very bad practices in public schools.... Kaufman makes a strong case that anyone can be great, even the ‘ungifted.’” —Post and Courier “Fascinating ... a smart, lucid, and down-to-earth exposition of the underlying neuroscience and the contentious history of theories of intelligence ... Blending incisive analysis with a warm sympathy for intellectual insecurities—and potential—Kaufman demonstrates that even the most ordinary mind is a strange and wondrous gift.” —Publishers Weekly “A warmly human and coolly scientific survey of both the reductive and the liberating fruits of two centuries of cognitive research.” —Scientist “A convincing—and moving—case for the great potential of even an ‘ordinary’ mind.” —Parade Mark Epstein Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective, Revised Edition “One of the most sophisticated integrations of the therapeutic and spiritual disciplines.” —Daniel Goleman, New York Times Thoughts Without a Thinker, which brought Buddhist teaching and modern psychotherapy together for the first time and changed thousands of lives in the process, was a pathbreaking work when originally published in 1995. With 150,000 copies sold, the book revolutionized the field, and a number of authors have since followed in Mark Epstein’s footsteps. The line between psychology and spirituality has recently begun to blur, as clinicians, their patients, and religious seekers explore new perspectives on the self. Drawing upon his own experiences as a psychotherapist and meditator, Epstein, a New York–based psychiatrist trained in classical Freudian methods, explains the unique psychological contributions of the teachings of Buddhism, describes the role of meditation in contemporary psychological language, and lays out the path to meditation-inspired healing. Now with a new preface by the author, Thoughts Without a Thinker offers a revolutionary new understanding of what constitutes a healthy emotional life. • Mark Epstein, MD, is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School.

Basic Books Serhii Plokhii The Last Empire: The Final Days of the Soviet Union On Christmas Day 1991, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned as president of the Soviet Union. At the time, US President George H. W. Bush declared it a victory for America, the ultimate triumph of American values over communism. In this book, however, awardwinning Ukrainian historian and writer Serhii Plokhii tells a very different story, drawing on recently declassified documents from the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library and primary sources from the Gorbachev Foundation in Moscow and the Ukrainian archives in Kyiv and Lviv to reveal that Bush and his White House advisors were deeply invested in saving the Soviet Union and keeping Gorbachev in power. Bush and Gorbachev were, Plokhii argues, more allies than enemies, and Bush abandoned their alliance only when it became obvious that Gorbachev’s fall from power was imminent. Bold, engaging, and accessible, this book challenges commonly held beliefs about the fall of the Soviet Union and examines the way in which those beliefs have negatively impacted US foreign policy—and through it, the rest of the world—to this day. • Serhii Plokhii, also known as S. M. Plokhy, is the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History at Harvard University and a leading authority on Soviet and international history. Born in Russia and raised and educated in Ukraine, Plokhii earned a second doctorate in history from Columbia University in 1990.

Many historians have alluded to the frailty and fractiousness of Austria during those years, but until now, no one has probed the extent of the rot, corruption, and hypocrisy that infused the Austrian state; nor has anyone shown how this fragility led inevitably to war. In A Mad Catastrophe, Wawro lays out just how the momentous decline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was the critical impetus of the war, but not, as one might expect, because the empire’s weakness tempted attack from her enemies in the Triple Entente. Rather, it was the AustroHungarians’ own ally in the Triple Alliance—Germany—that prodded her to enter into an all-out war with their rivals before the once-mighty empire imploded on herself, rendering impossible any such bid for power. • Geoffrey Wawro is a prize-winning expert in modern European history, specializing in the military history of 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century Europe.

Basic Books Thomas Maier Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love This is a new tie-in edition of the acclaimed biography of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, to coincide with the forthcoming Showtime series based on the book. For a time in the United States, Masters and Johnson taught us everything we needed to know about what goes on in the bedroom. Convincing hundreds of men and women to shed their clothes and copulate, they were the nation’s top experts on love and intimacy. Highlighting interviews with the notoriously private Masters and the ambitious Johnson, critically acclaimed biographer Thomas Maier shows how this unusual team changed the way we all thought about, talked about, and engaged in sex while they simultaneously tried to make sense of their own relationship. Entertaining, revealing, and beautifully told, Masters of Sex sheds light on the eternal mysteries of desire, intimacy, and the psyche. • Thomas Maier is author of the critically acclaimed Dr. Spock: An American Life, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; The Kennedys: America’s Emerald Kings, which was adapted into a Warner Home Video documentary; and Newhouse, which won the Frank Luther Mott Award for Best Media Book.

The huge wealth and new infrastructure that WWII brought transformed the nation and led to the birth of modern industrial Brazil.

Basic Books Ilan Stavans and Lalo Alcaraz A Most Imperfect Union: A Contrarian History of the United States The story of the United States is that of its humblest folk: the workers, immigrants, soldiers, slaves, students, and housewives whose toils have shaped—yet often been excluded from—the country’s official history. America owes its exceptional identity to these men and women, for the country’s diversity and dynamism are its most fundamental strength—as well as, on occasion, its biggest stumbling block to progress and prosperity. In A Most Imperfect Union, award-winning cultural commentator Ilan Stavans and popular syndicated cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz present a colorful, irreverent graphic history of the people, by the people, and for the people. Stavans and Alcaraz’s outlandish comic lens zeroes in on oft-neglected figures: Ayuba Suleiman Diallo, an educated West African man brought to colonial Maryland in chains; Ann Pudeator, one of the many women accused of witchcraft and executed in 17th-century Salem, Massachusetts; E. L.

Basic Books Jim Marrs Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, Revised Edition The most comprehensive analysis of one of America’s most infamous crimes, Jim Marrs’s New York Times best seller and the basis for Oliver Stone’s JFK has been revised for the 50th anniversary of the tragic event. Providing details on every aspect of the shooting and the ensuing investigation, Marrs includes interviews with witnesses never officially questioned by the government in his quest to shed light on the suspicions that fell on the mafia, the FBI, and the CIA—ultimately challenging the Warren Commission’s portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald as a lone assassin. Crossfire examines the variety of conspiracy theories surrounding the shooting, concluding that Kennedy’s many enemies in the business arena, the military, the right wing, and the mafia rendered his death inevitable by fostering a willingness in the highest echelons of government to relax the levels of presidential protection, thereby passively exposing JFK to fatal danger. Marrs’s tour de force is widely considered JFK gospel, the last word on the assassination until the government’s files on the case are unlocked in 2039. • Jim Marrs is an award-winning journalist and author of the New York Times best sellers Rule by Secrecy and The Rise of the Fourth Reich.

How can a country experience such a staggeringly fast decline in education? In Graduating Inequality, Suzanne Mettler tackles head-on what has gone so horribly wrong and gives insight into the politics underlying the stagnating graduation rates. In this eye-opening exploration of the educational system, Mettler examines two key problems and identifies why the task of governing gets more challenging as the dense layer of previously enacted policies gets ever wider. The first is tied to the problem of overcoming existing legislation; the second relates to “polarized plutocracy,” wherein the two political parties can’t cooperate on anything except policies that buttress the status of the powerful and privileged. This is the first book to explain the link between our dysfunctional politics, the nation’s stagnating college graduation rates, and rising inequality in America. Combining history and political science into one comprehensive look at where and how America has failed, Graduating Inequality is a clarion call for education reform in America and a warning to other countries. • Suzanne Mettler is the Clinton Rossiter Professor of American Institutions in the government department at Cornell University, specializing in political development, public policy, and political behavior.

BenBella Books Anne Jamison Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World Fic is the definitive guide to fanfiction—what it is, who does it, and why it’s the future of reading and writing—from today’s most in-demand “fanfiction academic.” Everyone’s talking about fanfiction these days, thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey. But for a very, very long time, they weren’t. Even people who wrote it didn’t talk about it. Fanfiction may have been an “open secret,” but it was a closed closet. From remixes and crossovers to alternate-point-of-view, alternate-ending retellings, Fic looks at the history and culture of fan writing and presents provocative discussions on fanfiction from both fan and “professional” writers. It looks at the way fanfiction not only redraws the boundaries of stories and characters but also transforms how we think about and experience authorship, reading, writing, and more. Fic features a foreword by Lev Grossman (author of The Magicians) and interviews or essays from Amber Benson, Jane Espenson, Ron Hogan, Jonathan Lethem, Andrew Shaffer, and many others • Anne Jamison, a media go-to person on fanfiction and University of Utah English professor, has been interviewed by or quoted in the New York Review of Books, the Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly’s “PopWatch,” and the Washington Post, among others.

Da Capo Press Robert Greenfield Ain’t It Time We Said Goodbye? On the Road with the Rolling Stones Although they didn’t know it then, when the Rolling Stones embarked on their farewell tour to England in March, 1971, after having announced they were going into tax exile in the south of France, it was the end of an era. For the Stones, nothing would ever be the same. Over 10 days, the band traveled by train and bus to play two shows a night, performing new songs like “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses” from their as yet unreleased album Sticky Fingers, as well as classics like “Satisfaction” and “Honky Tonk Women.” Only one journalist—Robert Greenfield—was allowed to accompany the Stones, and this is his firsthand account, highlighted by new interviews with many of the key players on this landmark tour. Not only were the Stones saying farewell to England and embarking on new lives in France, but Greenfield covers the moments right before they became the biggest touring band in the world and the events leading up to the schism between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards that would change the band forever. A vibrant and thrilling look at the way it once was and would never be again, Ain’t It Time We Said Goodbye gives readers unprecedented access to the world according to the Rolling Stones. • Robert Greenfield is a former associate editor of the London bureau of Rolling Stone magazine.

I’m the Man is Ian’s fast-paced, humorous, and revealing memoir spanning his childhood through the creation of Anthrax and the band’s reinvigoration with its newest lead guitarist, Jonathan Donais. It’s chock-full of glimpses into a metalstar’s life: touring with Pantera and partying with the late Dimebag Darrell, getting wild with Black Label Society front man and longtime Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, storming through Europe with Metallica, and the time Ian and late Anthrax bassist Cliff Burton were almost arrested in England after bobbies thought they looked suspicious, detained them, and combed their flat for drugs. Readers also discover Ian’s passion for computer poker and how he had a side career as a professional gambler during the lean years of Anthrax.

Steven Spielberg, how did you miss this story? ... Harding is a respected military affairs expert ... and his writing style carries immediacy as well as authority....

Da Capo Press Martin Goldsmith Alex’s Wake: The Voyage of the St. Louis and a Grandson’s Journey from Guilt to Redemption In 1939, the SS St. Louis, a luxury liner carrying 900 Jewish refugees fleeing persecution in Nazi Germany, was denied entry into the United States, Canada, and Cuba. On board were Martin Goldsmith’s grandfather and his 17-year-old son, Goldsmith’s uncle. In Alex’s Wake, Goldsmith traces their devastating journey back to France, including their three years being transported from camp to camp before they ultimately died in the gas chambers. Goldsmith offers a compelling history of the voyage of the St. Louis, including testimony from those on board, the story of why the Nazis allowed the refugees to leave Germany on a cruise ship in the first place, a tale of espionage, and the brave resolve of Capt. Gustav Schroeder, whose unyielding support for his passengers resulted in his being honored as Righteous Among the Nations.

Although the framers gave the president little authority, Washington knew that anything he did would set precedents for generations of his successors. To ensure their ability to defend the nation, he simply ignored the Constitution when he thought it necessary and reshaped the office into what James Madison called a monarchical presidency. Modern scholars call it the “imperial presidency.” A revealing new look at the birth of American government, Mr. President describes George Washington’s assumption of office in a time of continual crisis, as riots, rebellion, internecine warfare, and attacks by foreign enemies threatened to destroy the new nation. Drawing on rare documents and letters, Unger shows how Washington combined political cunning, daring, and sheer genius to seize ever-widening powers to solve each crisis. • Harlow Giles Unger, a veteran journalist, broadcaster, educator, and historian, is a former distinguished visiting fellow in American history at Mount Vernon and author of 20 books, including six biographies of America’s Founding Fathers and three other histories of the early republic.

Hazelden Publishing Michael W. Clune White Out: The Secret Life of Heroin April 2013 • Memoir • 260 pages World Rights: Hazelden “An astonishing new book! White Out is more than a recovery memoir. It is a phenomenology of heroin addiction—the single best thing I have read about the drug— and a deep, often beautiful meditation on the nature of memory, pleasure, and time.” —Lorin Stein, Paris Review Daily “The unusual risk taken by Clune’s unusually good addiction memoir is its enduring lyrical reverence for heroin. The heroin is so close you can see the white. It hasn’t been relegated to the past. It has an honest and dangerous smile. It’s right here, whitely licking its chops.” —Gideon Lewis-Kraus, New Yorker “Clune’s razor-sharp description of the magical first time he got high exemplifies why this stands out among dime-a-dozen addiction memoirs.... At its best, this chronicle keenly touches on the devastations of heroin with disciplined literary flair.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The book works on many levels.

Hazelden Publishing Louise Hart, PhD, and Kristen Caven The Bullying Antidote: Superpower Your Kids for Life Help your children develop the communication skills, self-respect, and self-esteem needed to be confident and resilient in the face of a bully. As parents, we want our children to succeed. Not just academically but personally. The reality, though, is that bullying has reached epidemic proportions in our schools and communities. When not addressed, it contributes to higher rates of depression, substance abuse, and suicide among youth. Many kids simply do not feel safe—and their teachers and parents have no idea what’s going on. Some parents who know that their children are having difficulty do not know what to do: Are these kids just being kids? Should I tell someone? In this critical, life-saving book, Louise Hart, PhD, a leading educator in self-esteem development, gives parents the skills they need to prevent their children—whether 6 or 16—from being bullied. The antidote, she reveals, is to equip moms and dads with the tools to raise confident and resilient kids through positive parenting, and she includes tips and a course of action for boosting self-respect, teaching kids how to communicate, and creating a family culture where bullying is not accepted. • Louise Hart, PhD, is a community psychologist dedicated to creating family and school environments in which children thrive and learn the skills necessary to become healthy, self-directed, loving adults.

Because traditional Hindu culture has no concept of depression, no doctor could diagnose and no medicine could heal her mysterious illness, leading her parents to insist it was “only in her head.” Only after the birth of her first child, when her husband discovered her in the backyard “clawing the earth furiously with my bare hands, intent on digging a grave so that I could bury myself alive,” did she finally get the help she needed. After a stay in a psych ward, she eventually found “the light within,” an emotional and spiritual awakening from the darkness of her tortured mind. Ramprasad’s inspiring story provides a first-of-its-kind cross-cultural view of mental illness—the very different way it is (or is not) regarded in India and America and how she drew on both her rich Hindu heritage and Western medicine to find healing. • Gayathri Ramprasad is founder and president of ASHA International, a nonprofit organization promoting personal, organizational, and community wellness.

Hazelden Publishing Marilyn Mason, PhD Becoming a Genuine Leader: Renew Integrity at Work by Understanding Your Past Most people don’t intend to operate with greed, cynicism, dishonesty, or passive aggression. Often they don’t even realize they are acting out. Other times they feel driven to these things by others’ equally unsavory behaviors. But to become truly impactful, leaders must get in touch with their authenticity and apply their power and privilege to engender positive cultural values. Just as success at work can come from strengths our families have nurtured, all too often these assets can be eclipsed by the dysfunctional behaviors also born from our pasts. In Becoming a Genuine Leader, Marilyn Mason teaches us how to lead from within by understanding our past and changing the behaviors and communication styles that have compromised our integrity. She reveals that when we honestly look into our family culture and understand the impact of denying or hiding emotions, essential changes in how we manage and work with colleagues will take place. As personal insight results in more open interaction and cooperation, both rising and established leaders can see a work environment come alive with greater trust and creativity. • Marilyn Mason, president of Mason & Associates, LLC, and a former University of Minnesota faculty member, is an internationally recognized consultant and speaker on executive leadership development and coaching.

Those in recovery often struggle with the compulsive thoughts and behaviors still programmed into addictive brains well after the drinking and drugging has stopped.

Hazelden Publishing Kristina Morgan Mind Without a Home: A Memoir of Schizophrenia In her brutally honest, highly original memoir, Kristina Morgan takes us inside her head to experience the chaos, fragmented thinking, and startling creativity of the schizophrenic mind. With the intimacy of private journal-like entries and the language of a poet, she carries us from her childhood to her teen years, when hallucinations began to hijack her mind, into adulthood, when she began abusing alcohol to temper the punishing voices that only she could hear. This is no formulaic tale of tragedy and triumph: we feel Kristina’s hope as she pursues an education and career and begins to build strong family connections, friendships, and intimacy—and we feel her devastation as the insistent voices convince her to throw it all away, destroying herself and alienating everyone around her. Woven through the pages of her life are stories of recovery from alcoholism and the search for her sexual identity in relationships with both women and men. Eventually, her journey takes her to a place of relative peace and stability where she finds the inner resources and support system to manage her chronic illnesses and live a fulfilling life. • Kristina Morgan is a first-time author.

Nation Books Delphine Schrank The Rebel of Rangoon Delphine Schrank was a rookie reporter in 2008 when the Washington Post dropped her into the heart of military-junta-ruled Burma armed with nothing but her wits and a roll of $100 bills stuffed into her socks for bribes. Although the population at first seemed utterly crushed, their rebellious spirit completely worn out after decades of civil war, she soon discovered the quietly subversive underground network of political dissidents still at work beneath the surface. Originally sent to cover the aftermath of destructive tropical storm Nargis and then get out, Schrank instead stayed in Burma to chase this story, following a young activist pseudonymously referred to as Nway in his rise to become a leader of the movement. This book, the result of four years spent as a fly on the wall in a closed society, provides a compelling, exciting, and, above all, human story of the Burmese resistance and the beginnings of change in this long-repressed country. • Delphine Schrank was the Washington Post’s undercover correspondent in Burma from 2008 to 2010 and is now a contributing editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review and the Burma correspondent for the Latitude blog at the International Herald Tribune/New York Times.

Webb was the former San Jose Mercury News reporter whose 1996 Dark Alliance series on the socalled CIA–crack cocaine connection created a firestorm of controversy and led to his resignation from the paper amid escalating attacks on his work by the mainstream media. Author and investigative journalist Nick Schou published numerous articles on the controversy and was the only reporter to significantly advance Webb’s stories. Drawing on exhaustive research and highly personal interviews with Webb’s family, colleagues, supporters, and critics, Schou argues convincingly that Webb’s editors betrayed him, despite mounting evidence that his stories were correct. Kill the Messenger examines the Dark Alliance controversy, what it says about the current state of journalism in America, and how it led Webb ultimately to take his own life. By combining the story of one of Webb’s most ardent defenders—his widow, Sue Bell Stokes—with a probing examination of one of the most important media scandals in recent memory, this book provides a gripping view of one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of investigative journalism. • Nick Schou is author of The Weed Runners and Orange Sunshine.

Your book has arrived.” —Reader’s Digest Anthony Le Donne The Wife of Jesus: Ancient Texts and Modern Scandals Cutting through the conspiracy theories and firebrand rhetoric, Anthony Le Donne brings us a refreshingly open and accessible investigation into one of Christianity’s most controversial debates: Was Jesus married? Whether stirred up by the phenomenal success of Dan Brown’s novels or the “discovery” last year of the so-called Gospel of Jesus’ Wife—an ancient piece of papyrus that some interpret to mean that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were man and wife—the matter refuses to rest. Amid the storm of controversy, Le Donne provides a haven of clarity and sense. Approaching the subject from a firmly historical perspective, he assesses Jesus within his sociocultural context, demonstrating not only that Jesus was likely married before the age of 30—although not to Mary Magdalene—but that his preaching against traditional family bonds indicates that he would have returned to a single state during his ministry. Crucially, Le Donne also confronts our own preoccupation with Jesus’s sexuality, examining how the quest for Jesus’s wife has more to say about the history of the Christianized West and those leading the search than it does about the life of Jesus. • Anthony Le Donne is a visiting lecturer in the Religion Department at the University of the Pacific, California.

Oneworld Dan Washburn The Forbidden Game: Golf and China’s Hypercapitalist Dream Statistically, 0 percent of the Chinese population plays golf, which was once known as the “rich man’s game” and considered taboo. Yet China is in the midst of a golf boom: hundreds of new courses open every year, despite the fact that it is illegal for anyone to build them. Award-winning journalist Dan Washburn charts China’s economic and political fortunes through the lives of three men intimately involved in the country’s bizarre golf scene. We meet Zhou, a peasant turned golf pro who discovered the game when he won a job as a security guard on one of the massive construction sites and who sees the game as his key into the emerging Chinese middle class; Ma, a litchi farmer whose land was confiscated for an “ecological park” and who has resorted to setting up a food kiosk on a nearby track; and Martin, a Western executive maneuvering through China’s byzantine and corrupt bureaucracy (as well as Thai gangs). The Forbidden Game is a rich and engrossing portrait of the world’s newest superpower and the path to what might now be called the “Chinese dream.” • Dan Washburn is an award-winning sports and business reporter and managing editor of the Asia Society Online.

But despite (and perhaps because of) his notoriety, his work is frequently encumbered by mistranslations, clichés, and misconceptions. In this landmark assessment of the great theorist, Professor Beverley Clack reveals a more complex Freud than the one with whom we are commonly presented. Casting new light on a man often unfairly derided as obsessed with sex and rigid theory, Clack argues that he was as concerned with “the death drive” as the “sex drive” and that his fierce critique of religion masked a fascination with spiritual, existential, and philosophical questions. Revealing how the work of philosophers such as Schopenhauer and Nietzsche influenced Freud far more than he cared to admit, Clack explains his key ideas and case studies in the context of his eventful life. Including a detailed exploration of hysteria and its foundational role in his theories, this myth-busting introduction gives a vital insight into why Freud’s thought is still so relevant today. • Beverley Clack is professor of philosophy and religion at Oxford Brookes University.

Stockman forcefully conveys enormous amounts of knowledge.” —Kirkus Reviews “Stockman produces a persuasive and deeply relevant indictment of a system dangerously akilter.... What Stockman has written is a book that makes clear we are that future generation of the past, inheritors of all the wishful thinking, simple illogic and flawed compromises that produced the near-term benefits our parents and grandparents worried about but ultimately wanted. And now it’s payback time.” —Washington Post “Stockman devotes some of the book to the past five years, joining multiple previous authors who have presented their nominations for the villains and heroes of the 2008 economic collapse. As a book critic and investigative reporter, I have absorbed a dozen of those previous books. Stockman’s is my favorite because of his original research, the context he presents (starting with the economic depression of the 1930s), his former insider status, and his apparent political non-partisanship during the endeavor.” —USA Today “I’d read this book 10 times before I read another possible presidential candidate’s memoir of how his Real American Story schooled him in the Audacity of Hope.... [A] coherent vision of a World Without the Fed.” —Slate “His rhetoric in a recent New York Times op-ed piece ignites like Seal Team Six coming at you, flash grenades exploding, assault weapons blazing.

The self-confessed smartest guy in the room has written a compelling, intensely readable book that exhumes aspects of economic history that both Democrats and Republicans likely wish would have stayed hidden.

PublicAffairs Paul Marks, MD, and James Sterngold On the Cancer Frontier In On the Cancer Frontier, Paul Marks, MD, and James Sterngold provide an intelligent argument that spells hope for the future of cancer research. They attribute the elusive nature of cancer’s cure to its inherently archaic processes. With a history of less-thanoptimistic research, cancer has long been characterized as a losing battle, viewed as guerilla cells rather than a marching army. Suddenly, however, science learned to fight the right war at ever-closer quarters. Author Paul Marks stands at the forefront of the momentous chain of discoveries, chronicling the insights of researchers and doctors around the world and the groundbreaking effects of their painstaking advances. Together with James Sterngold, he weaves a humbling account of how and what we have learned about the mechanisms of malignant and abnormal cells that make up every one of us, offering a much-needed ray of hope for cancer patients everywhere. • Paul Marks, MD, was president and CEO at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for 19 years. Before that he was professor of human genetics and Frode Jensen Professor of Medicine, dean of the Faculty of Medicine, and vice president for health sciences and director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia University.

This book seeks to help people navigate these intercultural situations by identifying eight critical dimensions of business practice and showing readers how to analyze the positioning of one culture with respect to another on each.

Folkenflik lucidly and effectively sorts out the complicated phone-hacking story and its political ramifications.” —Kirkus Reviews In July 2012 Rupert Murdoch experienced what he called “the most humbled day of my life” (he misspoke—he meant “humbling”) when he was testifying in front of a British parliamentary inquiry into the activities of his British newspapers and was assailed by a man carrying a paper plate full of shaving foam. Murdoch looked tired, old, and out of touch with the organization he had created. It seemed that he was within weeks of losing control of the business he had built. Within six months it was as if the scandal had never happened. News International’s share price was robust, Murdoch’s control unquestioned, and he had promoted a bold division of News International into two companies, one focusing on digital and TV, the other on print. Other news barons are more flamboyant, but none is as significant a factor in popular culture across the English-speaking world. Murdoch may not be liked, but he is respected. His competitive instincts are second to none. With all that has happened in the Murdoch story, it’s amazing that almost five years have passed since the last full biographical treatment.

The father was a shopkeeper and, with his wife, raised three handsome sons comfortably enough. Ullah tells the remarkable story of the three very separate paths taken by their children, one who was rather aimless, one who became a lawyer, and one who became an Islamic radical.

Facts are, and must be, the coin of the realm in a democracy, for government “of the people, by the people and for the people” requires—and to some extent assumes—an informed citizenry. Unfortunately, distinguishing between fact and fiction has always been a formidable challenge, often with real life-or-death consequences. But now it is more difficult and confusing than ever. The Internet age makes comment indistinguishable from fact and erodes authority. Into the battle for truth steps Charles Lewis, a pioneer of journalistic objectivity. His book looks at the various ways in which truth can be manipulated and distorted by governments, corporations, and even lone individuals. He shows how truth is often distorted or diminished by delay: truth in time can save terrible erroneous choices. In part a history of communication in America, a cri de coeur for the principles and practice of objective reporting, and a journey into several notable labyrinths of deception, 935 Lies is a valorous search for honesty in an age of casual, sometimes malevolent distortion of the facts. • Charles Lewis, a best-selling author and national investigative journalist for the past 30 years, is a tenured professor of journalism and, since 2008, founding executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University School of Communication in Washington, DC.

The contribution of ‘Comeback’ is to cogently lay out the bright economic consequences of the unconventional oil and gas revolution and the revival of manufacturing.” —Daniel Yergin, Wall Street Journal “Morris (The Trillion-Dollar Meltdown, 2008, etc.) presents a persuasive, upbeat forecast of economic growth, starting now, for the United States....

He does not provide a gloomy view or cataclysmic predictions. Instead, based largely on exclusive polling data from the Pew Research Center, he lays out just how differently Gen Xers and Millennials (anyone born after 1980) think from Baby Boomers and Silents about everything from marriage to family to religion to politics. Those attitudinal differences, along with the demographic tilt to an older and grayer population and more ethnically diverse and economically poorer younger generations, are going to force changes in our politics and how we think about marriage, family, and practically everything else. • Paul Taylor, a longtime journalist and writer, is currently executive vice president of the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan “fact tank” based in Washington, DC, that provides information on the issues, attitudes, and trends shaping America and the world.

Fear has warped Americans’ perspectives, justified alternatively both overreaction and inaction, and enabled the United States to rationalize bad policies as prudent ones on an ongoing basis for over a decade. In National Insecurity, David Rothkopf explores this topic, drawing on his extraordinary network of high-level contacts and the more than 100 interviews he conducted with the players who have made and influenced the critical international decisions of the Bush and Obama years. From Iraq to Afghanistan, from battling terror to assessing the emerging threat of cyber warfare, and from partisan wrangling to hammering out the international agreements that have shaped our time, Rothkopf asks not only how we ended up where we are but the bigger questions about where we should be and how US leadership can be restored. • David Rothkopf is CEO and editor-at-large of Foreign Policy.

It is not just the well-to-do who have benefited, but, especially, the poor. The lessons from the spirit of 1991 are not just relevant for India today; they are also of prime importance for the billions of citizens of low income countries around the globe.” —George A. Akerlof, Nobel laureate in economics, 2001 “Every important developing country should be the subject of a masterful book like this. Bhagwati and Panagariya have paid a great service to India—and actually other emerging countries—by writing it. If it’s a must read for scholars and practitioners of economic development, it should be absolutely mandatory for the Indian political leaders.” —Ernesto Zedillo, director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization and former president of Mexico “All economic correlations are complex, and many factors are at play, but Why Growth Matters shows how the poor benefit from economic development and which regulations still stand in the way. As Pope Francis opens a discussion on reducing poverty, the book could not have come at a better time.” —Washington Examiner “This latest contribution from Jagdish Bhagwati and Arvind Panagariya, two Indianborn economists at Columbia University, is welcome.

Cats and dogs were once wild animals. Today, they are family members and surrogate children. A little over a century ago, pets didn’t warrant the meager legal status of property. Now, they have more rights and protections than any other animal in the country. Some say they’re even on the verge of become legal persons. How did we get here—and what happens next? In this fascinating exploration of the changing status of dogs and cats in society, pet lover and award-winning journalist David Grimm traces the rich and surprising history of our favorite companion animals, from their wild origins to their dark days in the Middle Ages to their current standing as the most valued animals on earth.

How could it accomplish its vital, monumental goals without burning out its leaders and exhausting its donors? What exactly were those goals now, in the world as it was?

For almost two centuries, financial policies developed by 1820 served as a virtual fiscal constitution. Prior to 2001, no American government, except that formed by the Confederate rebels, had ever financed a prolonged war entirely with debt. No prior federal government had ever initiated an expensive and permanent new program without any expected revenues to pay for it.

Redleaf Press Connie Jo Smith, Charlotte M. Hendricks, and Becky S. Bennett Growing, Growing Strong Series Body Care A lifetime of healthy living can be kick-started during childhood. Children become curious about their bodies between ages three and eight, and Body Care gives them the mental tools to feel happy with their bodies and know how to improve their quality of life. Using 36 activities to get children familiar with important health concepts, this book teaches them how to prevent the spread of disease, encourages a sense of independence, and develops their self-help skills. Fitness and Nutrition The rate of childhood obesity has spiked dangerously in recent years. Fitness and Nutrition encourages children to adapt healthy lifestyles at an early age by giving them activities that promote physical activity, rest and relaxation, and healthy food choices and eating habits. Backed by the three authors’ extensive experience with health and safety issues, this curriculum provides effective ways for children to learn how to regulate their health. Safety Introducing the concept of safety to children early on can help them develop safe attitudes that they will carry into their adult lives. Safety informs children in a nonfrightening way about how to build awareness of their surroundings and confidently incorporate safe behavior into their daily lives. Some of the topics covered are pedestrian safety, seat belts, fire prevention, weapons avoidance, poisoning prevention, and tobacco and alcohol awareness, so children will know the appropriate actions to take in each situation. Social and Emotional Well-Being As children become aware of how they experience certain emotions, Social and Emotional Well-Being can guide them in coping with their emotional reactions in positive ways.

From candid to kooky to classic, this collection sheds the love, light, and lyricism the gritty city deserves.” —Susan Shapiro, author of Speed Shrinking and Five Men Who Broke My Heart “New York City is like a lover who left you for the slightly younger, prettier girl: you can smell him, taste him, yearn to have him back in your life. All the stories in this collection recall that lover and his many faults, and then make you forget them, all over again.” —Martha Frankel, author of Hats and Eyeglasses and executive director of the Woodstock Writers Festival “Of course it would take more than one woman to capture the mythic, ever-shifting, exhilarating, and disappointing beast that is New York. The chorus of voices that is Goodbye to All That sings the city—both of the pavement and of the mind—to life, over and over.” —Nick Flynn, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City “Essential reading for anyone with a creative soul, an adventurous spirit, and a hint of masochism—aka a New Yorker.” —Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins

Seal Press Nancy K. Miller Breathless: An American Girl in Paris October 2013 • Travel Literature • 224 pages World Rights: Seal Press “Witty, wise, poignant, and funny, Breathless is an extraordinary memoir about a young woman’s adventures and misadventures in Paris, a city that was for her as much an idea as a place. Miller’s vividly told memories, keen intelligence, gentle irony, and striking gift for narrative pacing held me captive from beginning to end.” —Siri Hustvedt, author of What I Loved and The Summer Without Men “This cautionary memoir of a girl’s fantasy adventure in Paris gone awry reads like a witty novel. Its vivid scenes are frequently hilarious, sometimes sad, and always engrossing. That it really happened only makes it better.” —Alix Kates Shulman, author of To Love What Is “A steamy portrait of the jeune fille before she became a feminist. A wonderful reminder of what it meant to be a good daughter determined to become a bad girl in the roiling sixties. I loved every chapter of this American’s sex-obsessed quest for identity in Paris.” —Susan Gubar, author of Memoir of a Debulked Woman “Breathless, a deliriously satisfying account of erotic awakening and disillusionment, unfolds as a chain of tightly crafted, riveting vignettes, each episode as mesmerizing as the city enshrined at the book’s center. Simone de Beauvoir would have loved this story. Jean-Paul Sartre, too. But Nancy K. Miller is more entertaining than both of them put together. Her book offers a beautifully distilled parable about the difficulties of finding a direct path to happiness.” —Wayne Koestenbaum, author of Andy Warhol “Surprising, daring, funny, wise, and profound.” —Elaine Showalter, author of A Jury of Her Peers Pooja Mottl 3-Day Resets: Teaching Your Taste Buds to Love Healthy Foods In 3-Day Resets Pooja Mottl explains how whole foods differ from the extremely processed food that surrounds us on a daily basis and why we easily fall prey to nutrient-deplete food.

She teaches a set of lifelong skills that will enable readers to eat on their own terms with minimal sacrifice. This is not a diet book, and there are no dictates. Mottl teaches one how to think differently for oneself, planting the seeds of motivation for healthier eating as a permanent part of life. The three resets are awareness, discovery, and change. • Pooja Mottl is a sustainable chef and culinary instructor, health and wellness speaker, healthy lifestyle coach, and CEO of PoojasWay.com.

Weinstein Books Sandra Lansky and William Stadiem Daughter of the King: Growing Up in Gangland Meyer Lansky, one of the biggest names in American organized crime, was instrumental, along with his associate Charles “Lucky” Luciano, in the development of the National Crime Syndicate in the United States. An extremely powerful figure for decades, he developed a gambling empire that stretched across the country and to Cuba. Sandy Lansky was the crown princess of this empire. Now 72, she was there during the heyday of the Mafia, the age of Mad Men, wild pre-Castro Cuba, Rat Pack Las Vegas, and Fontainebleau Miami Beach. She grew up living in splendor on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, educated at finishing schools, riding horses in Central Park, dressed by Bonwit’s and Bergdorf’s, and dating movie stars, music idols, and tycoons—all while still in her teens. She was one of the richest and most eligible girls in the world, and she grew up way too fast, marrying before the age of 20 and burning the candle at both ends. But for all her high living, she knew better than to keep a high profile. This beautiful, superspoiled dream girl knew how to keep the family secrets, and for all her excesses, she was a loyal family member. That silence ends with this book. In this tell-all, Lansky reveals what growing up as a Mafia princess was like. Chock-full of key figures of the 1950s and 1960s, her story takes us vividly back to the glory days of the American Mafia and her own glittering life. • William Stadiem was a Harvard JDMBA and Wall Street lawyer before leaving for Hollywood, where he has written the screenplays for such films as Franco Zeffirelli’s Young Toscanini, starring Elizabeth Taylor. His books include the best-selling Marilyn Monroe Confidential and Lullaby and Good Night with Vincent Bugliosi. He was formerly the Hollywood columnist for Andy Warhol’s Interview as well as food critic for Los Angeles magazine. Spring 2014 • Biography/True-Crime • 300 pages World Rights: Weinstein Books Jen Granger Feminine Lost: Why Most Women Are Male Feminine Lost explores the premise that all human beings are constructed of two energies, one masculine and one feminine. With the rise of the feminist movement, many women have migrated to their masculine side, some to the extent of losing access to their feminine side altogether. As a consequence, men have found their way to their feminine side. This process has had huge consequences for relationships between men and women, often leaving them feeling unsatisfied in their relationships or lonely without one. Feminine Lost examines female archetypes—the “Andro Woman,” the “Cougar,” the “Good Doer,” and more—that have come to the fore since the feminist movement, pairing them with their masculine opposites and looking at how the process of attraction functions under these circumstances. When the feminine principle breaks down, the ramifications are many. Feminine Lost breaks through the misunderstanding of what it means to be feminine; it is not an outward appearance but something far more significant. • Jen Granger was born in Cape Town, South Africa. She has been a natural intuitive since she was very young. She studied for 10 years under a spiritual teacher who practiced the theosophical traditions, as well as a shaman in the United States who followed the Peruvian traditions. For the last 12 years, she has practiced transformational coaching, helping women find balance in their personal and business lives.

Weinstein Books Eric Kuskey with Bettina Gilois Billion Dollar Painter: The Rise and Fall of the Thomas Kinkade Empire He was just one man, but Thomas Kinkade ultimately made more money from his art than every other artist in the history of the world combined. His sentimental paintings of babbling brooks, rural churches surrounded by brilliant fall foliage, and idyllic countryside cottages were so popular in the 1990s that 1 in every 20 homes in America owned one of his prints. With the help of two partners, a former vacuum salesman and an ambitious junior accountant who fancied himself a businessman, Kinkade turned his art into a billion-dollar gallery and licensing business that traded on the NYSE before it collapsed in 2006 amid fraud accusations. One part fascinating business story about the rise, and demise, of a financial empire born out of divine inspiration, one part dramatic biography, Billion Dollar Painter is the account of three nobodies who made it big. One of them was a man who—despite being a devout Christian who believed his artwork was a spiritual force that could cure the sick and comfort the poor in spirit— could not save his art empire or himself. Eric Kuskey, former colleague of Thomas Kinkade and close friend until the artist’s death in 2012, tells Kinkade’s story for the first time—from his art’s humble beginnings on a sidewalk in Carmel, California, to his five-house compound in Monte Sereno. It’s a tale of addiction and grief, of losing control, and, ultimately, of the price of our dreams. • Eric Kuskey worked intimately with Thomas Kinkade and his company for over 14 years and remained friends with him until his death. He is currently cofounder and owner of a Los Angeles–based talent agency. • Bettina Gilois has won the Humanitas Prize and Black Reels Best Screenplay for Glory Road. She has written for Jerry Bruckheimer, and in addition to writing books and screenplays, she blogs about art and life for the Huffington Post.

Wharton Digital Press Stewart D. Friedman Baby Bust: New Choices for Men and Women in Work and Family In the last 20 years, the concept of the family has been drastically redefined. Nowadays, men and women are more aligned in their attitudes about dual-career relationships, and they are opting out of parenthood in equal proportions. But their reasons for doing so are quite different. In Baby Bust: New Choices for Men and Women in Work and Family, Stewart D. Friedman draws on his unique research to explain why so many young people are not planning to become parents. He reveals good news and bad—there is a greater freedom of choice now, and yet new constraints are limiting people’s options. From why men and women have different reasons for opting out of parenthood and what choices we face in our social and educational policy to how organizations and individuals—especially men—can spur cultural change, Friedman addresses a variety of issues. In the debates on work and family, people of all generations are calling for a reasoned, thoughtful, research-driven contribution to the discussion. In Baby Bust, Friedman offers just that: an astute assessment of how far we have come and where we need to go from here. • Stewart D.

He founded both the Wharton Leadership Program and the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project and served as the senior executive responsible for leadership development at Ford Motor Company.
