A powerful, persuasive, thought-provoking vision for how to finish the long struggle for equality between men and women, work and family When Anne-Marie Slaughter accepted her dream job as the first female director of policy planning at the U.S. State Department in 2009, she was confident she could juggle the demands of her position in Washington, D.C., with the responsibilities of her family life in suburban New Jersey. Her husband and two young sons encouraged her to pursue the job; she had a tremendously supportive boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and she had been moving up on a high-profile career track since law school. But then life intervened. Parenting needs caused her to make a decision to leave the State Department and return to an academic career that gave her more time for her family. The reactions to her choice to leave Washington because of her kids led her to question the feminist narrative she grew up with. Her subsequent article for The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” created a firestorm, sparked intense national debate, and became one of the most-read pieces in the magazine’s history. Since that time, Anne-Marie Slaughter has pushed forward even further and broken free of her long-standing assumptions about work, life, and family. In the twenty-first century, the feminist movement has stalled, and though many solutions have been proposed for how women can continue to break the glass ceiling or rise above the “motherhood penalty,” so far no solution has been able to unite all women. Now, in her refreshing and forthright voice, Anne-Marie Slaughter returns with her vision of what true equality between men and women really means and how we can get there. Slaughter takes a hard look at our reflexive beliefs—the “half-truths” we tell ourselves that are holding women back. Then she reveals the missing piece of the puzzle, a new focus that can reunite the women’s movement and provide a common banner under which both men and women can advance and thrive. With moving personal stories, individual action plans, and a broad outline for change, Anne-Marie Slaughter presents a future in which all of us can finally finish the business of equality for women and men, work and family.

What was she doing here? Hyattown had changed very little in the years Vanessa Sexton had been away. In some ways her high school sweetheart, Brady Tucker, hadn't changed much either—he was still lean, athletic, rugged…But the once reckless boy had become a solid, dependable man. He'd stood her up on the most important night of her life; could she ever trust him again? So Vanessa had finally come home, Brady thought. She could still turn him inside out with one of her sultry looks. He couldn't believe she hadn't forgiven him for that night twelve years ago—but he'd had his reasons for not showing up. He'd let her leave town then—but he wasn't going to let her get away this time…

After losing his job, Lee Kravitz, a workaholic in his midfifties, took stock of his life and realized just how disconnected he had become from the people who mattered most to him. He committed an entire year to reconnecting with them and making amends. Kravitz takes readers on ten transformational journeys, among them repaying a thirty-year-old debt, making a long-overdue condolence call, finding an abandoned relative, and fulfilling a forgotten promise. Along the way, we meet a cast of wonderful characters and travel the globe-to a refugee camp in Kenya, a monastery in California, the desert of southern Iran, a Little League game in upstate New York, and a bar in Kravitz's native Cleveland. In each instance, the act of reaching out opens new paths for both personal and spiritual growth. All of us have unfinished business-the things we should have done but just let slip. Kravitz's story reveals that the things we've avoided are exactly those that have the power to transform, enrich, enlarge, and even complete us. The lesson of the book is one applicable to us all: Be mindful of what is most important, and act on it. The rewards will be immediate and lasting.

"In the wake of the fiftieth anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Unfinished Business: Race, Equity, and Diversity in Library and Information Science Education provides evidence that few, if any, library and information science (LIS) programs were ever integrated. With an impressive cast of contributors that includes experienced faculty and students, Unfinished Business tackles the issue of diversity from three distinct perspectives: external and environmental forces, student recruitment, and faculty/curriculum issues." "Unfinished Business points to all of the spokes on the wheel of library and information science education, from racial issues in the financial-aid process to the impact of technology on LIS students of color, and from the recruitment of minority students to faculty development. Beyond showing where LIS programs have fallen short, the contributors to this volume reinvigorate the discourse regarding the future. Unfinished Business is a catalyst for hope and strength in meeting the challenges of fully realizing the promise of the Brown v. Board of Education decision."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

This idea of mine, to write a book, has long been on the back burner of my mind. I think of this book as life lessons learned from my experiences, some good, some not so good. What seems to prove true is that love and faith will get us through many a challenge. It was easier to present this work in a journal-like format, straight- forward and truthful. I have been blessed with the passage of enough time to see the humor in some of my experiences. Detroit is a good place to be from. I grew up in Detroit when it was a beautiful, lively, and interesting city. I am a product of its educational system, Kindergarten through Wayne State University, Masters Program. Motown flourished and so did I! I was there until the beginning of the end. After losing my brother, stepfather, and husband in Detroit I escaped to Los Angeles, California. I continued my career as a special education teacher in Los Angeles and later in Las Vegas. In 2002 I retired after 40 years of teaching. Now in 2011 at 71 years of age I have found a new passion!
