            Life Happens: And Other Unavoidable Truths (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Schultz, Connie

            From the 2005 Pulitzer Prize--winning columnist Connie Schultz comes fresh, clever, insightful commentary on life today: love, politics, social issues, family, and much, much more. In the tradition of Anna Quindlen, Molly Ivins, and Erma Bombeck, but with a distinctive voice and ...sensibility all her own, Connie Schultz comes out of the heartland of America to get you seeing, feeling, and thinking more deeply about the lives we lead today. You might spot someone you know in the stories here, writes Connie. Maybe you'll even find a glimpse of yourself. Yes, each of us is unique, but life happens in ways that bind us like Gorilla Glue. In Life Happens, Connie shares sharp, passionate observations, winning our hearts with personal thoughts on a wide range of topics, from finding love in middle age to the meaning behind her father's lunch pail, from single motherhood, to who really gets the tips you leave and why as the war in Iraq, race relations, gay marriage, and wwhy women don't vote. In a more humorous vein, Connie shares her mother's advice on men ( Don't marry him until you see how he treats the waitress ) and warns men everywhere against using the dreaded f-word (it's not the one you think). Along the way, Connie introduces us to the heroic people who populate our world and shows us how just one person can make a difference. Charming, provocative, funny, and perceptive, Life Happens gives us, for the first time, Connie Schultz's celebrated commentary in one irresistible volume. Life Happens challenges us to be more open and alive to others and to the world around us. From the Hardcover edition.

            Going to War in Iraq: When Citizens and the Press Matter

            Conventional wisdom holds that the Bush administration was able to convince the American public to support a war in Iraq on the basis of specious claims and a shifting rationale because Democratic politicians decided not to voice opposition and the press simply failed to do its j...ob. Drawing on the most comprehensive survey of public reactions to the war, Stanley Feldman, Leonie Huddy, and George E. Marcus revisit this critical period and come back with a very different story. Polling data from that critical period shows that the Bush administration's carefully orchestrated campaign not only failed to raise Republican support for the war but, surprisingly, led Democrats and political independents to increasingly oppose the war at odds with most prominent Democratic leaders. More importantly, the research shows that what constitutes the news matters. People who read the newspaper were more likely to reject the claims coming out of Washington because they were exposed to the sort of high-quality investigative journalism still being written at traditional newspapers. That was not the case for those who got their news from television. Making a case for the crucial role of a press that lives up to the best norms and practices of print journalism, the book lays bare what is at stake for the functioning of democracy-especially in times of crisis-as newspapers increasingly become an endangered species.

            THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL election of 2008 produced a monumental result, sending a message of change, hope and inspiration to millions of people not only in this country, but worldwide. Obama: First African American President takes a comprehensive look at the entire election... process from the primaries to the general election. Shehu Bankole-Hameed is an immigrant born in Nigeria. Now a United States citizen, he offers a fresh perspective as he shares his careful examination and honest viewpoints regarding the American political system. Beginning with a brief history of Barack Obama-his education, family, and his platforms-Bankole-Hameed moves into an in-depth exploration of the presidential primaries, President Obama's campaign message, the general election, and the challenges the new President faces. Bankole-Hameed also discusses the contributions of Oprah Winfrey, as well as other African Americans whose dedication to change contributed to the largest number of total votes ever cast for a United States president. Just as in the past, our country will continue to experience insurmountable hurdles and hard-won victories. Obama: First African American President highlights a moment in history that has provided inspiration to many and a confirmation that America is and always will be a beacon of hope.

            In this, the third issue of Joe Biel's award-winning, ongoing look at the Critical Mass movement, we are given a well-researched analysis at the history of bicycle activism and police spying in Portland, Oregon. The result is an engaging and readable combination of story, activis...m, and history. Over the course of 44 pages, Biel looks at why a city so bike-friendly as Portland has virtually no Critical Mass ride, while cataloging the ways the Portland Police Department has interacted with local riders and historic activism. Says Biel, It's concerning how many times a cyclist has repeated to me the police's version of Portland's cycling history or how years later new rumors are created about what happened. Strange and inspiring, Bipedal, By Pedal #3 is essential, illuminating reading for cyclists and non-cyclists alike.
