            A BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK 'A bracing account of discovery ... Glistens with deftly told snippets and character-rich stories' Financial Times 'Marks the birth of a new star of non-fiction' William Dalrymple A captivating, lyrical and deeply discerning portrait of life in the ...Cornish town of Newlyn, the largest working fishing port in Britain, from a brilliant debut writer There is the Cornwall Lamorna Ash knew as a child - the idyllic, folklore-rich place where she spent her summer holidays. Then there is the Cornwall she discovers when, feeling increasingly dislocated in London, she moves to Newlyn, a fishing town near Land's End. This Cornwall is messier and harder; it doesn't seem like a place that would welcome strangers. Before long, however, Lamorna finds herself on a week-long trawler trip with a crew of local fishermen, afforded a rare glimpse into their world, their warmth and their humour. Out on the water, miles from the coast, she learns how fishing requires you to confront who you are and what it is that tethers you to the land. But she also realises that this proud and compassionate community, sustained and defined by the sea for centuries, is under threat, living in the lengthening shadow cast by globalisation. An evocative journey of personal discovery replete with the poetry and deep history of our fishing communities, Dark, Salt, Clear confirms Lamorna Ash as a strikingly original new voice.

            Women around the globe are being called to change the world through a new kind of leadership - but to do this, we must be clear in purpose, reconnected to our 'womanity' and strengthened in our capacity as high-level influencers. Women in leadership is a big topic these days, and... for good reason. But it isn't enough to simply invite women into senior positions if the system itself never changes-different people doing more of the same is not real change. Instead, what we need is a new breed of influencehers to transform the system and disrupt the status quo. InfluenceHer offers the framework that is needed for women to harness their spiritual intelligence and radically transform business as a phenomenal force for good. Dion Johnson, the Womanologist, shares the five commitments that every woman influencer should follow to lead with heart and achieve big results. Readers will- feel empowered to rise above the adversity of patriarchal structures and become influencehers learn unique ways to inspire change from a place of faith and authenticity remaster their innate abilities for divine feminine disruption transition from a victim position to change-makers in business Written for the woman who is too busy, too stressed, under too much pressure; who feels too small to dismantle the patriarchal systems; who has already quit, either by bowing to the status quo or by quitting her job, InfluenceHer is the spark that will ignite a spiritual revolution that has the power to change the way we lead and do business.

            The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream
              

            The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream (EPUB ebook)

            By Hartmann, Thom

            <span >"This is the most important, dynamic book on the cancers of monopoly by giant corporations written in our generation."-from the foreword by Ralph Nader <span > American monopolies dominate, control, and consume most of the energy of our entire economic system; they functio...n the same as cancer does in a body, and, like cancer, they weaken our systems while threatening to crash the entire body economic. American monopolies have also seized massive political power and use it to maintain their obscene profits and CEO salaries while crushing small competitors. But Thom Hartmann, America's #1 progressive radio host, shows we've broken the control of behemoths like these before, and we can do it again. Hartmann takes us from the birth of America as a revolt against monopoly (remember the Boston Tea Party?), to the largely successful efforts of both Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt and other like-minded leaders to restrain corporations' monopolistic urges, to the massive changes in the rules of business starting during the "Reagan Revolution" that have brought us to the cancer stage of capitalism. He shows the damage monopolies have done to so many industries: agriculture, healthcare, the media, and more. Individuals have taken a hit as well: the average American family pays a $5,000 a year "monopoly tax" in the form of higher prices for everything from pharmaceuticals to airfare to household goods and food. But Hartmann also describes commonsense, historically rooted measures we can take-such as revitalizing antitrust regulation, taxing great wealth, and getting money out of politics-to pry control of our country from the tentacles of the monopolists.

            Always Day One: How the Tech Titans Stay on Top (EPUB ebook)

            By Kantrowitz, Alex

            At Amazon, 'Day One' is code for inventing like a startup with little regard for legacy. Day Two is, in Jeff Bezos's own words, is 'stasis, followed by irrelevance, followed by excruciating, painful decline, followed by death.'Most companies today are set up for Day Two. They bui...ld advantages and defend them fiercely rather than invent the future. But Amazon and fellow tech titans Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are operating in Day One: they prioritize reinvention over tradition and collaboration over ownership.Through 130 interviews with insiders, from Mark Zuckerberg to hourly workers, Always Day One reveals the tech giants' blueprint for sustainable success. Kantrowitz uncovers the engine propelling the tech giants' continued dominance at a stage when most big companies begin to decline. And he shows the way forward for everyone who wants to compete with, and beat, the titans.

            Making the invisible visible: Reclaiming women's agency in Swedish film history and beyond
              

            Making the invisible visible: Reclaiming women's agency in Swedish film history and beyond (EPUB ebook)

            Edited by Stigsdotter, Ingrid

            As film stars, actresses have contributed to the film industry's glamorous surface. To talk about women in film as "invisible" may thus seem odd. This book, however, is concerned with the paradox that on the other side of the camera, women are clearly underrepresented. This is tr...ue of contemporary film culture, and has been true historically, despite significant variations between countries/geographical areas, historical time periods and different roles/professions in film production, distribution and exhibition. Considering women's gradually increasing participation in the paid workforce during the 20th century, women's representation in film work might also be expected to increase gradually from the beginning of cinema and onwards. However, as the Women Film Pioneers Project has suggested, the number of women who "at all levels inside and outside the Hollywood film industry" was greater in first two decades of cinema "than at any time since". This may partly reflect the fact that it was easier for women to enter the film industry in an early, experimental phase, before it had become apparent how lucrative the medium of film could be. Nevertheless there is arguably a need to extend the attention on women's contributions to film history beyond the silent era, making visible what has been absent in traditional film history books, and reclaim women's agency in a wider film historical perspective. This anthology represents a step in this direction. The articles included in the book deal with women's agency in a wide range of roles, in film production, exhibition and criticism, but also with new perspectives on stars/actresses and their agency, and extending focus to include LGBT and queer identities. We pay particular attention to the challenges and opportunities that digitization offers for projects of this kind, including a wider range of methods, subjects and themes.
