1 Bennetts, Leslie The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much?
The author puts to rest the common tale that if women don't "have to" work, it's best that they stay home. Women with kids and a challenging career enjoy a richly rewarding life as a result. When women gamble on dependency, most eventually end up on the wrong side of the odds - and miss out on intellectual, emotional, psychological, and even medical benefits of self-sufficiency. This is an eye-opening and persuasive argument for why women can - and should - embrace the joyously complex lives they deserve. Includes an index and reading group guide. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

3 Dam, Kenneth W. Law Growth Nexus: the Rule of Law and Economic Development
0815717202 / 9780815717201; Much of what we call the developing world has stopped developing, while growth in other regions has slowed. As a result, billions of people remain trapped in poverty, despite decades of foreign aid and lending by multilateral institutions such as the World Bank. In the past, economists prescribed liberalization and privatization to governments seeking to improve their economic performance. But dissatisfaction with these remedies in many countries left policymakers searching for new methods to jumpstart growth. In this book Kenneth Dam explores the newly ascendant view that institutions - in particular, the rule of law - play a critical role in determining which economies thrive and which lag behind. The author explains what policymakers need to know about the relationship between legal institutions and economic growth. Dam uses an extended analysis of China to assess the importance of the rule of law. This case study illustrates several of the book's central themes, including the difficulting of building a strong, independent judiciary and a first-class financial sector. 323 pages with index, references, and footnotes. 33 pages are cut short at the top; doesn't affect reading. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

4 Friedman, Jon; Meehan, John House of Cards: Inside the Troubled Empire of American Express

Things became truly nasty during the recession in the early '80's, when restaurants in Boston began to complain about the enormous commission taken when one of their cards was used. It was the arrogance that AmEx executives showed relating to this problem that really started the skid downward. The binding, dark gray, is fine.

8 Locke, Christopher Gonzo Marketing: Winning through Worst Practices
0738207691 / 9780738207698; NEW - Gonzo Marketing is a knuckle-whitening ride to the place where social criticism, biting satire, and serious commerce meet - and where the outdated ideals of mass marketing and broadcast media are being left in the dust. Invoking the spirit of gonzo journalism, Locke rails against business practices that treat customers like cattle, and urges marketers of all stripes to tap into Web-based communities, or "micromarkets" based on candor, trust, passion, and a general disdain for anything that smacks of corporate smugness. Gonzo Marketing shows how companies that support and promote these communities can have everything they've always wanted: Greater market share, customer loyalty, and brand equity. Laced with Locke's inimitable style and penetrating point of view, Gonzo Marketing is the raucous wake-up call that no one in business - from the trading room floor to the boardroom - can afford to ignore. 243 pages including an index and notes. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

13 Thurow, Lester C. The Zero-Sum Society: Distribution and the Possibilities for Economic Change
0465085881 / 9780465085880; Business Week said: "A ruthlessly honest, tough-minded book on what it will take to restore the U. S. Economy to health. " As relevant today as it was twenty years ago, The Zero-Sum Society shows us how to think about the best way to balance government stewardship of the economy with the free market aspirations of upwardly mobile Americans. Interpreting macroeconomics as a zero-sum game, Thurow proposes that the American economy will not solve its trenchant problems - inflation, slow economic growth, the environment - until the political economy can support, in theory and practice, the idea that certain members of society will have to bear the brunt of taxation and other government-sponsored actions. This book is a piercing analysis of the social implications of economic policy and a classic work of economic problem solving. 230 pages including notes and an index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
