DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"In May 1970, four days after Kent State, construction workers chased students through downtown Manhattan, beating scores of protesters bloody. As hardhats clashed with hippies, it soon became clear that something larger was underway- Democrats were at war with themselves. In The Hardhat Riot, David Paul Kuhn tells the fateful story of when the white working class first turned against liberalism, when Richard Nixon seized the breach, and America was forever changed. It was unthinkable one generation before: FDR's "forgotten man" siding with the party of Big Business and, ultimately, paving the way for presidencies from Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump. This is the story of the schism that tore liberalism apart. In this riveting story- rooted in meticulous research, including thousands of pages of never-before-seen records- we go back to a harrowing day that explains the politics of today. We experience an emerging class conflict between two newly polarized Americas,m and how it all boiled over on one brutal day, when the Democratic Part's future was bludgeoned by its past."--

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Let's start a conversation about financial resilience. If you lost your job or relationship today, would you be OK? The fact is that thousands of women in Australia are not. Women over 55 are the fastest growing homeless group in this country, and it's a trend echoed in the UK and US. Most of these women were not born into poverty, just poorly insulated from it. Drawing on inspiring multi-generational stories, Louise Fitzgerald-Baker shows how to build strength and resilience in all aspects of our lives, starting with business and finance. A successful property developer, Louise risked losing everything when the industry hit a downturn. The stress took its toll and she had to urgently look after her health and wellbeing.In the process, she realised that she wasn't alone. Many women told Louise they'd suddenly realised the ground had shifted. They had to re-think who they were and how they could continue to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.'The Pink Hard Hat' is Louise's metaphor for financial insulation. It's all about building a life of security, resilience and purpose. So pull on your hard hat and your steel-capped boots, and start investing in yourself now. Louise is on a mission to change the plight of accidental poverty for women today. She wrote this book to start the conversation about money. Louise believes Are you OK? should extend to our financial wellbeing. And that as women, we need to share our stories and insights to help each other along. Each one, teach one. In that way we can build our resilience, capacity and community. www.thepinkhardhat.com.au

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

An exciting e-format containing 27 video clips taken directly from the CBS news archive of a brilliant, best-selling account of the Nixon era by one of America’s most talented young historians. Between 1965 and 1972 America experienced a second civil war. Out of its ashes, the political world we know today was born. Nixonland begins in the blood and fire of the Watts riots-one week after President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, and nine months after his historic landslide victory over Barry Goldwater seemed to have heralded a permanent liberal consensus. The next year scores of liberals were thrown out of Congress, America was more divided than ever-and a disgraced politician was on his way to a shocking comeback: Richard Nixon. Six years later, President Nixon, harvesting the bitterness and resentment borne of that blood and fire, was reelected in a landslide even bigger than Johnson's, and the outlines of today's politics of red-and-blue division became already distinct. Cataclysms tell the story of Nixonland: • Angry blacks burning down their neighborhoods, while suburbanites defend home and hearth with shotguns. • The civil war over Vietnam, the assassinations, the riot at the Democratic National Convention. • Richard Nixon acceding to the presidency pledging a new dawn of national unity--and governing more divisively than any before him. • The rise of twin cultures of left- and right-wing vigilantes, Americans literally bombing and cutting each other down in the streets over political differences. •And, finally, Watergate, the fruit of a president who rose by matching his own anxieties and dreads with those of an increasingly frightened electorate--but whose anxieties and dreads produced a criminal conspiracy in the Oval Office.

HUMMINGBIRDS & HARD HATS Perched on a limb thirty feet in the air, she squinted as shafts of sunlight sliced through branches of the tall elm tree, picking up the sparkling blonde highlights in her hair. A tiny hummingbird darted by ... iridescent fleeting beauty. Fair Ingrid sighed. Even at eight years old, she knew that life, too, was fleeting. Squaring her thin shoulders and closing her eyes, the little girl let go, falling purposely to what she knew was her certain death. That failed suicide attempt at age eight left Ingrid with a broken arm but a healing heart. "I didn't die that day, but I wanted to. My mother had tried to sell me again," declares Ingrid Reeves, recalling her dark, desperate youth as the only white child in a black family. Ingrid lived to triumph over hate, hardship and prejudice. As a wife and mother, the contemporary pioneer woman lived without electricity for twelve years, carving out a Circle of Love sanctuary on a remote mountain in the California wilderness. For thirty years, she wore a hard hat, bravely working in a danger zone by her husband's side to build a business. Today, Ingrid invites you on an amazing journey to a land of bubble magic, beauty and rich bounty. Don your pink hard hat, dive into adventure and taste the sweet nectar of success!

The author, herself among those once labeled «the hard-hat crowd», received an undergraduate education similar to that experienced by her contemporaries at elite private colleges. Yet, while this school, once considered a poor man's Harvard, was founded with a mission to provide academic equity, the curriculum evolved to one that responded to pressure for relevancy and practicality.
