In the 1930s a band of smart and able young men, some still in their twenties, helped Franklin D. Roosevelt transform an American nation in crisis. They were the junior officers of the New Deal. Thomas G. Corcoran, Benjamin V. Cohen, William O. Douglas, Abe Fortas, and James Rowe helped FDR build the modern Democratic Party into a progressive coalition whose command over power and ideas during the next three decades seemed politically invincible. This is the first book about this group of Rooseveltians and their linkage to Lyndon Johnson's Great Society and the Vietnam War debacle. Michael Janeway grew up inside this world. His father, Eliot Janeway, business editor of Time and a star writer for Fortune and Life magazines, was part of this circle, strategizing and practicing politics as well as reporting on these men. Drawing on his intimate knowledge of events and previously unavailable private letters and other documents, Janeway crafts a riveting account of the exercise of power during the New Deal and its aftermath. He shows how these men were at the nexus of reform impulses at the electoral level with reform thinking in the social sciences and the law and explains how this potent fusion helped build the contemporary American state. Since that time efforts to reinvent government by "brains trust" have largely failed in the U.S. In the last quarter of the twentieth century American politics ceased to function as a blend of broad coalition building and reform agenda setting, rooted in a consensus of belief in the efficacy of modern government. Can a progressive coalition of ideas and power come together again? The Fall of the House of Roosevelt makes such a prospect both alluring and daunting.

She's borrowed your life. But what if she decides to keep it? Glamorous Margot Jones is the fashion editor at glossy women's magazine Haute, and pregnant with her first child. Margot's used to her carefully curated life being the object of other women's envy - who wouldn't want her successful career, loving husband, beautiful house and stylish wardrobe? Maggie, a freelance journalist, certainly knows she doesn't measure up. So when Margot gets in touch to suggest she apply for her maternity cover at Haute, Maggie seizes the chance at living a better life - even if it's only temporary. But the simultaneous arrival of Margot's baby and a brutal end to her oldest friendship sends Margot into a spiral of suspicion and paranoia. Are Maggie's motives as innocent as they seem? And what happens at the end of the year when Margot wants her old life back - especially if Maggie decides she doesn't want to leave?

Both a literary magazine and a chronicle of girl culture, Bust was born in 1993. With contributors who are funny, fierce, and too smart to be anything but feminist, Bust is the original grrrl zine, with a base of loyal female fans--all those women who know that Glamour is garbage, Vogue is vapid, and Cosmo is clueless.The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order contains brand new, funny, sharp, trenchant essays along with some of the best writings from the magazine: Courtney Love's (unsolicited) piece on Bad Girls; the already immortal "Dont's For Boys"; an interview with girl-hero Judy Blume; and lots of other shocking, titillating, truthful articles. A kind of Our Bodies, Ourselves for Generation XX, The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order is destined to become required reading for today's hip urban girl and her admirers.

The New Girl is the second in Meg Cabot's hilarious series for younger readers, Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls. Allie Finkle likes rules – they help to keep her life in order, especially when she's just moved house and things begin to spiral out of your control! Starting a new school, making new friends and saving the life of an abandoned Kitten is hard enough without Rosemary, the Meanest girl in the class, deciding to pick on you. But Allie knows how to fight back (you have to be tough when you have two little brothers, right?) and the most important rule of all is that 'You can't let a bully know she's bothering you, or otherwise the bully wins.'

It began as a yell of frustration in the summer of the year 2000, a yell which sprang from a conflict I've endured both internally and externally for as long as I could remember. "You can't understand me!" - it was a remark that had echoed in my mind for many years. It was a remark that seemed to come from every woman I'd ever known from my mother using it to justify the 30-year live-in divorce of her marriage to each of a series of failed relationships. I wanted to understand what society holds to be a very basic defining difference between people - that of gender.I decided in the Summer of 2000 that as soon as I had developed the skill, the courage, and an acceptably female appearance, I would live as a woman - Lisa Anne Weber - full time in public for two months, attempt to find employment and build a life for myself in a new town, and then write about the experience.
