Interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco is one of North America's leading interpreters of intercultural theory and practice. This volume gathers together her finest writings since 1995 and includes critical essays by Jean Fisher and Caroline Vercoe that interpret her work. Engaging and provocative, these essays, interviews, performance scripts and fotonovelas take readers on a tour of our current multicultural landscape. Fusco explores such issues as sex tourism in Cuba as a barometer of the island's entry into the global economy, Frantz Fanon's theorization of metropolitan blackness, and artistic and net activist responses to the effects of free trade on the Mexican populace. She interviews such postcolonial personnae as Isaac Julien, Hilton Als and Tracey Moffatt. Approaching the dynamics of cultural fusion from many angles, Fusco's satires, commentaries, and sociological inquiries collapse boundaries, and form a sustained meditation on how the forces of globalization impact upon the making of art.

Accident-prone you might wonder? Not really. But Anthony Pasqualetti is acutely aware that the incidents in his long and fulfilling life are rich with close-calls, death-defying thrills, and uncanny acts of bravery and singular episodes where any one man could have easily succumbed or chose to flee. Anthony G. Pasqualetti chose to take on his life lessons with integrity, honesty and clarity. Each close call made him wonder what the Good Lord had in store for him. Yet each brush with death confirmed his lust for life and his ability to work diligently through adversity. He considers himself a common man found in uncommon circumstances. He always tries to deal with whatever comes along as a test and a process by which he would grow stronger and more resilient. Tony is a man who doesn't see why people are amazed that he has lived to the age of 80, since any ten men should have given up when faced with so many personal perils. This story is told completely from the author's perspective. A simple tale in complexity; a string of diverse dilemmas handled with pragmatic certainty --- Tony is somewhat amazed to find out that he was --- born to survive with a will to live.

This book addresses three core ideas essential to life and leadership mastery: (1) The ability to take self-responsibility releases you from the victim mindset. (2) The ability to deal with strong feelings allows you to mine the jewels in those grenades. (3) The ability to live and lead from the 3rd altitude of life--the level of purpose. You will learn to climb the mountain from power, to principle, to purpose. These three keys to self-mastery will build true competence and compassion in your life.

I have often asked myself what others would do if they had walked in my shoes. I would be interested to see how and what others would say about my experiences in life. I can't tell all because it would only bring distress to myself and my family. I lived my life, and I thought it would be taken away from me at any time with no fault of my own. I have often been asked, "How can you still smile after all the things you've had to endure in your life?" The only answer I can give is that I have to please God, not myself.

Leadership is hard. How can you balance compassion for your people with effectiveness in getting the job done? A global pandemic, economic volatility, natural disasters, civil and political unrest. From New York to Barcelona to Hong Kong, it can feel as if the world as we know it is coming apart. Through it all, our human spirit is being tested. Now more than ever, it's imperative for leaders to demonstrate compassion. But in hard times like these, leaders need to make hard decisions—deliver negative feedback, make difficult choices that disappoint people, and in some cases lay people off. How do you do the hard things that come with the responsibility of leadership while remaining a good human being and bringing out the best in others? Most people think we have to make a binary choice between being a good human being and being a tough, effective leader. But this is a false dichotomy. Being human and doing what needs to be done are not mutually exclusive. In truth, doing hard things and making difficult decisions is often the most compassionate thing to do. As founder and CEO of Potential Project, Rasmus Hougaard and his longtime coauthor, Jacqueline Carter, show in this powerful, practical book, you must always balance caring for your people with leadership wisdom and effectiveness. Using data from thousands of leaders, employees, and companies in nearly a hundred countries, the authors find that when leaders bring the right balance of compassion and wisdom to the job, they foster much higher levels of employee engagement, performance, loyalty, and well-being in their people. With rich examples from Netflix, IKEA, Unilever, and many other global companies, as well as practical tools and advice for leaders and managers at any level, Compassionate Leadership is your indispensable guide to doing the hard work of leadership in a human way.

In 2004 the world was first introduced to The Filthy Thirteen, a book describing the most notorious squad of fighting men in the 101st Airborne Division (and the inspiration for the movie ÒThe Dirty DozenÓ). In this long awaited work one of the squadÕs integral membersÑand probably its best soldierÑreveals his own inside account of fighting as a spearhead of the Screaming Eagles in Normandy, Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge. Jack Womer was originally a member of the 29th Infantry Division and was selected to be part of its elite Ranger battalion. But after a year of grueling training under the eyes of British Commando instructors, the 29th Rangers were suddenly dissolved. Bitterly disappointed, Womer asked for transfer to another elite unit, the Screaming Eagles, where room was found for him among the divisionÕs most miscreant squad of brawlers, drunkards, and goof-offs. Beginning on June 6, 1944, however, the Filthy Thirteen began proving themselves more a menace to the German Army than they had been to their own officers and the good people of England, embarking on a year-of ferocious combat at the very tip of the Allied advance in Europe. In this work, with the help of Stephen DeVito, Jack provides an amazingly frank look at close-quarters combat in Europe, as well as the almost surreal experience of dust-bowl-era GIÕs entering country after country in their grapple with the Wehrmacht, finally ending up in HitlerÕs mountaintop lair in Germany itself. Throughout his fights, Jack Womer credited his Ranger/Commando training for helping him to survive, even though most of the rest of the Filthy Thirteen did not. And in the end he found the reward he had most coveted all along: being able to return to his fiance Theresa back in the States.
