Reshaping the Work-Family Debate: Why Men and Class Matter (The William E. Massey Sr. Lectures in the History ...
Joan C. Williams
Harvard University Press
The United States has the most family-hostile public policy in the developed world. Despite what is often reported, new mothers don’t “opt out” of work. They are pushed out by discriminating and inflexible workplaces. Today’s workplaces continue to idealize the worker who has someone other than parents caring for their children.

Reshaping Retail: Why Technology is Transforming the Industry and How to Win in the New Consumer Driven World

Now retailers in emerging markets appear to be repeating the story all over again, except on a scale and at a speed beyond anything we have seen before. ...

Nancy K. Schlossberg
American Psychological Association (APA)
In preparation for retirement, we are often urged to build up our financial portfolio or perhaps down-size our home or move closer to family.

It is important for retirees to make a plan for their retirement financially, but also to take stock of their psychological portfolio at the same time. This means taking an honest ...
Total Church: A Radical Reshaping around Gospel and Community (Re:Lit)

When these principles take precedence, say ...

But when we are engaged in these intimate conversations with absent friends, what happens to our relationship with the people ...

George L. Mosse

At the outbreak of the First World War, an entire generation of young men charged into battle for what they believed was a glorious cause.
