The career patterns, career progressions and career opportunities of seventy-eight successful women in the federal government are documented in this book. The research reveals not only what women or minorities must do to climb the managerial ladder, but also documents the significant experiences that teach them how to do so. Thirty-three major lessons of experiences and sixteen major events are carefully described and illustrated. It also analyzes the developmental stages of successful women and the barriers they encountered. The book concludes with a very practical chapter on what it takes to stay at the top and provides a capsule view of a career journey in "100 Steps to the Top."

In Unbending Gender, Joan Williams takes a hard look at the state of feminism in America. Concerned by what she finds--young women who flatly refuse to identify themselves as feminists and working-class and minority women who feel the movement hasn't addressed the issues that dominate their daily lives--she outlines a new vision of feminism that calls for workplaces focused on the needs of families and, in divorce cases, recognition of the value of family work and its impact on women's earning power.Williams shows that workplaces are designed around men's bodies and life patterns in ways that discriminate against women, and that the work/family system that results is terrible for men, worse for women, and worst of all for children. She proposes a set of practical policies and legal initiatives to reorganize the two realms of work in employment and households--so that men and women can lead healthier and more productive personal and work lives. Williams introduces a new 'reconstructive' feminism that places class, race, and gender conflicts among women at center stage. Her solution is an inclusive, family-friendly feminism that supports both mothers and fathers as caregivers and as workers.

Steven Jackson was raised in England, on the wrong side of the tracks-"the Black Country, where there's no right side." After a convoluted journey through life, he's content to bask in the Arizona sun and in his wife's attentions. His only contact with England is via the Internet or his infrequent visits to the British and Dominion Club near Long Beach-his English "fix." Into this idyll comes a letter from the British Embassy inviting him to discuss "a matter of some delicacy." Steven allows his wife, Pamela, to persuade him to respond to the letter, only because the consulate is on the way to the beach at Santa Monica, fish and chips at the Kings Head, a visit with friends, and maybe even some cricket. The news is not what he expects: he learns that he has a twenty-two-year-old daughter named Judith, a potential son-in-law, and some very distinguished in-laws. He finds himself embroiled in the preparations for a royal wedding and suddenly in conflict with two of his least favorite institutions: the British government and the media.

Celebrated as one of the greatest writers of his time, Javier Marías is best known for his spy trilogy, Your Face Tomorrow, which has been compared to Proust and hailed as one of the great modern European novels. In his first short story collection for fifteen years, he brings together tales which span his entire writing career : haunting tales from the very edges of life. An obscenely fat man obsessed with his much younger lover endlessly videotapes her every move, a ghost is condemned to repeatedly resign from his job, and a man of impeccable refinement meets his doppelganger at a work dinner, resulting in ghoulish life changes for both men.

Author: Robyn Carr
#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr brings together a poignant novel with a rich tapestry of characters. A moving story that will leave the reader laughing and crying, as two friends confront their pasts and move towards their futures. In the aftermath of her financier husband’s suicide, Emma Shay Compton’s dream life is shattered. Richard Compton stole his clients’ life savings to fund a lavish life in New York City and, although she was never involved in the business, Emma bears the burden of her husband’s crimes. She is left with nothing. Only one friend stands by her, a friend she’s known since high school, who encourages her to come home to Sonoma County. But starting over isn’t easy, and Sonoma is full of unhappy memories, too. And people she’d rather not face, especially Riley Kerrigan. Riley and Emma were like sisters—until Riley betrayed Emma, ending their friendship. Emma left town, planning to never look back. Now, trying to stand on her own two feet, Emma can’t escape her husband’s reputation and is forced to turn to the last person she thought she’d ever ask for help—her former best friend. It’s an uneasy reunion as both women face the mistakes they’ve made over the years. Only if they find a way to forgive each other—and themselves—can each of them find the life she wants.
