From New York Times–bestselling author: “A book to share with every woman in your family” honoring the wisdom and spirit of older women (Evelyn Champagne King). These women have lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, and creating nests out of which children fly to be productive members of society. Often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, they have unique insights that can help future generations not merely survive, but thrive. In Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom, Dr. Lois Frankel gives center stage to these wise women. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women aged seventy and older share thoughts and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious; insightful and witty; philosophical and practical: “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born in 1941, “add vodka.” This book, with lovely illustrations by Lisa Graves, is an important record of women’s reflections on lives well lived. It is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter. “I love this book! Wisdom and wit worth remembering and sharing.” —Josh Berman, creator and executive producer, Drop Dead Diva and CSI “It would be a shame if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits . . . This is truly a good read.” —Evelyn Champagne King “It’s about time for a book like this. For too long the wisdom of older women has gone unnoticed, unappreciated, and undervalued . . . Sure to put a smile on your face and the faces of the women you share it with.” —Rita Coolidge

In the early twentieth century, China began to import and then to manufacture thousands of consumer goods. These commodities changed the life of millions of Chinese, but the influx of imports and the desires they created threatened many in China. Politicians worried about trade deficits and new consumer lifestyles. Intellectuals, inspired by Western political economy, feared the loss of national sovereignty. And manufacturers wondered how they could survive the flood of inexpensive imports. This book argues that the responses of these groups to the emerging consumer culture helped define and spread modern Chinese nationalism.

In this compelling novel of Tudor drama and suspense, acclaimed author Alison Weir brings to life one of England’s most scandalous royal love affairs: the romance between the “Virgin Queen” Elizabeth I and her courtier Lord Robert Dudley. Only twenty-five and newly crowned, Elizabeth vows to rule the country as both queen and king. But her counselors continually press her to form an advantageous marriage and produce an heir. Though none of the suitors have yet worked their way to her throne, the dashing—though married—Lord Robert lays claim to Elizabeth’s heart. Their flagrant flirting, their unescorted outings, and the appointment of Lord Robert to Master of Horse inspire whispers through the court, and even rumors that Elizabeth has secretly given birth to Lord Robert’s child. Events take a dark turn when Robert’s wife is found dead. Universal shock is followed by accusations of murder. Despite the scandal, Elizabeth and Robert manage to navigate the choppy political, economic, and religious waters around them. But the greatest obstacle to marriage between the Queen and her true love may come not from outside forces, but from within. With intricate period detail and captivating prose, Alison Weir explores one of history’s most provocative “Did they or didn’t they?” debates. The Marriage Game maneuvers through the alliances, duplicities, intrigue, and emotions of a woman intent on sovereignty—over her country and herself. Praise for The Marriage Game “Entrancing . . . Weir manages to weave actual history and the imagined kind together seamlessly.”—Huntington News “Weir’s credible characters and blend of the personal and political will sweep up readers of this engrossing behind-the-scenes psychological portrait of Elizabeth.”—Publishers Weekly “Based on historical events, letters and conjecture, Weir paints a fascinating picture of Elizabeth’s years as queen. . . . There is enough drama here for a PBS series.”—RT Book Reviews “Weir’s impeccable reputation as both a historian and a master storyteller guarantees a huge audience for another intriguing Tudor-themed tale.”—Booklist Praise for Alison Weir A Dangerous Inheritance “A juicy mix of romance, drama and Tudor history . . . pure bliss for today’s royal watchers.”—Ladies’ Home Journal “Highly compelling [with] plenty to keep readers enthralled.”—Historical Novel Review Captive Queen “Should be savored . . . Weir wastes no time captivating her audience.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer “Stunning . . . As always, Weir renders the bona fide plot twists of her heroine’s life with all the mastery of a thriller author, marrying historical fact with licentious fiction.”—The Denver Post The Lady Elizabeth “Intrigue and maneuverings. Scandal. Schemers and innocents put to death. [This] history of Tudor England is an engrossing story. . . . Weir marries conjecture with what is known about the life of Elizabeth I from childhood to coronation, and it makes for ripping good reading.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “A compelling, even irresistible, read.”—Booklist (starred review) From the Hardcover edition.
