As a little boy all I wanted was to be loved. Learning what I thought was love from my family, eventually revealed to be years of manipulation and lies. I grew up in the juvenile system but I managed to find my way. Sadly, any time I thought I was on a path to greatness, my journey was disrupted. During my years of juvenile facilities, I faced loneliness and depression that led to multiple suicide attempts. Willing to do what it took to gain love and affection, I became a person that everyone wanted around while it benefited them. Unable to recognize I was manipulated, I ended up in prison two times. It was the second prison sentence when the blinders were removed. At that "ah-ha" moment after the persuasion of another inmate, I was able to see people for who and what they truly were. Not only was it an eye opening experience, but at that moment I took control of my life for the very first time. I was 25-years old and I felt like my life was just beginning. Although angry, hurt, and confused, I was able to successfully complete my sentence and come home to another life changing moment that would destroy any hopes of having a healthy relationship with my family.

High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive ethnography. Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, You're a Fag sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the "specter of the fag" becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual as well as homosexual boys and how the "fag discourse" is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.

Do the dead have rights? In a persuasive argument, Don Herzog makes the case that the deceased's interests should be protected This is a delightfully deceptive works that start out with a simple, seemingly arcane question--can you libel or slander the dead?--and develops it outward, tackling larger and larger implications, until it ends up straddling the borders between law, culture, philosophy, and the meaning of life. A full answer to this question requires legal scholar Don Herzog to consider what tort law is actually designed to protect, what differences death makes--and what differences it doesn't--and why we value what we value. Herzog is one of those rare scholarly writers who can make the most abstract argument compelling and entertaining.

Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are . . . nowhere to be found. Or are they? Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there. Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn’t belong here. So far as he can tell, there’s nothing in this place but spinsters . . . and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia. It’s a simple mission, made complicated by the spirited, exquisite Susanna Finch—a woman who is determined to save her personal utopia from the invasion of Bram’s makeshift army. Susanna has no use for aggravating men; Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene is set for an epic battle…but who can be named the winner when both have so much to lose?
