    “Rowan intertwines anecdotes and dozens of photographs with hard-to-stop-reading stories that track the canine legacy on America’s democracy.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog,” Harry Truman once said. Perhaps that’s why, for much of our Republic’s history, there have been two top dogs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—one with two legs, one with four. First Dogs, by distinguished journalist Roy Rowan and researcher Brooke Janis, tells the whole doggone story, from the days before there was a White House to Barack Obama’s adopted presidential pup, Bo. Here’s a lighthearted romp through American history, packed with drawings and paintings from early America, plus photographs, starting with Abraham Lincoln’s Fido. Not only did these four-footed goodwill ambassadors humanize their distinguished masters, they offered them a little unconditional love in a loveless town.First Dogs gives dog lovers and history lovers a new angle on presidential history and is more fun than you can shake a stick (or rubber bone) at.“A doggone delight that will leave you sitting up and begging for more. I give it four paws up.” —Dan Rather“It’s the charming photos that make First Dogs so appealing.” —USA Today“Succeeds in keeping the tail of trivia wagging the dog of American history. This one is fur keeps.” —People“Witty, engaging . . . This illustrated and light-hearted tribute to and appreciation of presidential dogs is a true delight.” —Chattanooga Times

    An investigation into how legislators have taken advantage of their positions—and of weak financial disclosure laws—to make millions.   After a historic financial crisis led Congress to unprecedented economic intervention, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post began an investigation that pierced the secrecy of the deeply flawed financial disclosure system that governs the 535 men and women who draft the nation’s laws.   Members of Congress directed millions of dollars to infrastructure projects near their residences and businesses, in some cases paving roads in front of their houses. They made major trades in the stocks of companies pressing them for legislation. They wrote laws favoring industries in which they were invested. They sponsored bills on which their own family members were paid to lobby. All of it is legal under the rules Congress has written for itself. Democracy Inc. shows the consequences of this system.

    The bestselling author of The Marketing of Evil and veteran newsman demystifies the destructive forces at work in the U.S. and the world today, from terrorism to school shootings to why we elect liars as leaders. The great paradox of the human race – namely, that we’re so smart we understand just about everything, except ourselves – has never been more striking, or more troubling, than right now. We don’t understand evil – what it is, how it works, and why it so routinely and effortlessly ruins our lives. We also don’t understand ourselves. David Kupelian takes a fresh and insightful look at this ancient subject evil through the most electrifying news stories of the day – from terrorism and school shootings to high-profile sex scandals and dysfunctional Hollywood celebrities. He explores the secret world of seduction and corruption in everyday life, once again demonstrating his uncanny knack for demystifying complex, elusive and intimidating subjects.

    City Hall proclaimed 2006 the Year of Creativity. 'Live With Culture' banners flap over the city. And across the city, donors are ponying up millions for the ROM and the AGO. Culture's never had it so good. Right?
    
     
    
    
     
     The State of the Arts  explores the Toronto arts scene from every angle, applauding, assailing and arguing about art in our fair burg. The essays consider the big-ticket and the ticket-free,from the Opera House and the CNE to the subconscious art of graffiti eradication and underground hip-hop. In between, you'll find considerations art in the suburbs, how business uses art to sell condos, questions of infrastructure, an examination of Toronto on film and a history of micro press publishing. You'll read about the fine line between party and art, the trials of being a capitalist in a sea of left-wing artists, the power of the internet to create arts communities and a plea for spaces that cater to musicians and their kids.
    
     
    
    
     
    Throughout, you'll find equal doses of optimism and frustration, and a good measure of T.O. love. Taken together, the thoughts of these writers, thinkers, musicians and city-builders aim to create an honest survey of where we're at and where we can go.

  • Joining a Prestigious Club - Cooperation with Europarties and Its Impact on Party Development in Georgia Moldova and Ukraine 2004–2015 - cover

    Joining a Prestigious Club -...

    Brussels’s idea of a “wider Europe” implies that Europeanisation is not limited to EU member states. The EU can, so it claims, also exert impact beyond its borders. One of the channels of external EU influence is cooperation between Europarties and parties outside the Union. Through mutual visits and joint activities, non-EU parties become internationally socialised, i.e., are exposed to the Europarties’ norms as well as values, and experience the rules as well as practices that shape European party-building. 
    
    What are the incentives for Europarties and non-EU parties to cooperate with each other? What kind of, and how much, impact did cooperation have on party development in post-Soviet Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine? Based on eighty interviews with party officials, international donors and academics, Maria Shagina outlines the set of motivations that trigger cooperation between Europarties and non-EU parties, analyses the impact of cooperation on party ideology, organisational structure, and inter-party behaviour in Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, and explores the implications of this cooperation on the standardisation, consolidation, and democratisation of the non-EU party systems.  
    
    Her findings shed light on how prestige and domestic factors impede the penetration of EU norms and values in the non-EU party structures, and point to the failures of Europarties to adequately address problems of party-development in Eastern Europe. The book reveals the ways in which cooperation with Europarties has paradoxically contributed to the ossification of the status quo and impaired the development as well as the consolidation of democracy in the three Eastern Partnership states.

    These three guests believe that if Americans, both progressive and conservative, take time to speak freely and truly listen to one another we’ll find that our views have much more in common than we realize. At a time when our democracy seems threatened, these wisdom leaders inspire us to join together to move beyond the middle ground and find a higher ground.
