For anyone who has ever loved a dog against their better judgement... Dogged Optimism is the story of a scruffy little dog and the woman who loves her. Killarney the Aussie terrier is not afraid of anything: big dogs, snakes, cancer. Belinda Pollard is afraid of many things, so Killarney becomes her in-house motivational speaker through grief, job loss and failed romance. If you've ever loved a dog or needed a laugh, you'll be inspired by Killarney's motto: Grab life by the throat and shake every last drop of joy out of it. Wrestle it, if you have to. Praise for Dogged Optimism A delightful read, as much about the ups and downs of owning a wilful dog as facing up to life, especially when it doesn't turn out as expected. Marianne Wheelaghan, The Blue Suitcase Anyone who's ever adored a dog can relate to this evocative, humorous tale. Molly Greene, The Gen Delacourt Mysteries Will charm you with its window into life Down Under and inspire you with its insights into overcoming personal challenges. Dawn Dicker, Writer & Content Strategist A heart-warming tale of one woman's special bond with her four-legged friend. Tanya Arnold, Pupcake Queen Belinda Pollard is an award-winning mystery author and former journalist who used to chuckle about people who treated their pets like children - until it happened to her. Her hobbies now include dog-walking in the rain and watching dog-training videos. She lives in Australia, travels the world (when she can find a good petsitter), and blogs about Real Life on a Beautiful Planet at www.belindapollard.com.

The traditional image of contemporary Africa is of a continent dogged by poverty, drought, degradation and famine. This study, drawing on the best work of the past decade and based on researched case studies from East and West Africa, rejects the notion of runaway desertification, driven by population growth and inappropriate land use. It suggests a more optimistic model of sustainable land use and an appropriate set of policy priorities to support dryland peoples in their efforts to sustain land and livelihoods.

Splashed against the tumultuous Clinton years and framed by the clash between gay political might and anti-gay activism, All the Rage presents the first authoritative guide to the new gay visibility. From the public outing of Ellen DeGeneres to the vicious murder of Matthew Shepard, gay lives and images have moved onto the center stage of American public life. Lesbians and gay men are indeed everywhere, from television sitcoms to Budweiser ads, from the White House to the Magic Kingdom. Combining personal stories with incisive analysis, Suzanna Danuta Walters chronicles this historic moment in our culture, arguing that we live in a time when gays are seen, but not necessarily known. Many consider the new gay visibility a sign of social acceptance, while others charge that it is mere window dressing, obscuring the dogged persistence of discrimination. Walters moves beyond these positions and instead argues that these realities coexist: gays are simultaneously depicted as the sign of social decay and the chic flavor of the month. Taking on the common wisdom that visibility means progress, All the Rage maps the terrain on which gays are accepted as witty accessories in movies, gain access to political power, and yet still fall into constrictive stereotypes. Walters warns us with clarity and wit of the pitfalls of equating visibility with full integration into the fabric of American society. From the playful TV fantasies of lesbian weddings on Friends to the very real obstacles confronting gay marriage, from the award-winning comedy Will & Grace to Bible-thumping radio superhost Dr. Laura, All the Rage takes on naive celebrants and jaded naysayers alike. With a sophisticated mix of caution and optimism, it provides an illuminating guide through these exciting, controversial times.
