EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

* Finalist for the National Book Award in Poetry * * Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry * Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism * Winner of the NAACP Image Award * Winner of the L.A. Times Book Prize * Winner of the PEN Open Book Award * ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The New Yorker, Boston Globe, The Atlantic, BuzzFeed, NPR. Los Angeles Times, Publishers Weekly, Slate, Time Out New York, Vulture, Refinery 29, and many more . . . A provocative meditation on race, Claudia Rankine's long-awaited follow up to her groundbreaking book Don't Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyric. Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), prohibits private business and government agencies with 15 or more employees from discriminating against a qualified handicapped person in all manner of the employment process from hiring to performance to termination. Employers are allowed to ask prospective employees about their ability to perform a specific job function but they're not allowed to ask them about their disabilities per se. Reasonable accommodation for disabled job applicants refers to not asking embarrassing questions during the interview and also to make reasonable physical accommodations. Regardless of the particular disability, be it mobility limitation, sight or hearing impairment or a chronic condition like multiple sclerosis, the company is supposed to provide assistance in all these matters. This might be to provide a sign language reader, provide a reading enlarger machine for the visually impaired or build a ramp to enable a wheelchair user to enter the building.

At least half of all American people will die without leaving a will. The way the system is set up makes it a bad move for the heirs if you don't have one. Even if you're poor, you could suddenly get struck down in an accident and leave heirs to the positive end of a large wrongful death lawsuit. If you don't leave a will, your estate goes to what's called Intestate. They will try to divvy it up to your relatives but if they can't find them, the property goes to the state. If you die without a will, the state determines who gets custody of your children under 18. The first thing to do is to sit down, take an inventory of everything you own and put a dollar value on it. This is called your estate and includes: Residence. Real estate. Business personal property including partnership interests, copyrights, patents, trademarks, stock options, etc. Vehicles, boats, etc. Bank accounts and CDs. Investments; Stocks, mutual funds and bonds.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In recent times, the notion of citizenship has become increasingly prominent as the traditional boundaries of the nation-state face challenges from globalization, multiculturalism, and economic restructuring. In this context, Citizenship in a Globalizing World is a welcome addition in the field of political science as it takes a detailed look at the topic of citizenship, from the origins of both citizenship and the state, to various theories of citizenship and what it means in the modern context, when it has to coexist with forces of globalization and the rise of new social groups.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Everybody has disabled people somewhere in their family tree. Lots of people are born disabled due to genetic reasons or as the result of pregnancy complications. People get injured or acquire debilitating diseases at some point in life. I've lived with both, a disabled relative and serious injuries of my own. The thing is that the world goes on. It doesn't slow down or stop just because someone is disabled. We can do so much politically and the rest we have to do on our own to fit into the world somehow in a useful, productive way to get the money we want to buy the things that will help us survive and enjoy our lives more. The best thing I ever saw about disabilities was the 1940s movie called Shaggy Bush which was a movie about a family going through ups and downs. There was a bit in there where the mother said her daughter's disability didn't mean she was doomed. It just meant that she would still do what she felt in her spirit with her life with this extra nuisance to deal with.
