In Enduring Bonds, Philip N. Cohen, renowned sociologist and blogger of the wildly popular and insightful Family Inequality, examines the complex landscape of today's diverse families. Through his interpretive lens and lively discussions, Cohen encourages us to alter our point of view on families, sharing new ideas about the future of marriage, the politics of research, and how data can either guide or mislead us. Deftly balancing personal stories and social science research, and accessibly written for students, Cohen shares essays that tie current events to demographic data. Class-tested in Cohen’s own lectures and courses, Enduring Bonds challenges students to think critically about the role of families, gender, and inequality in our society today.

Writing in plain language is not something they teach in you school. But it is an art and a science, and you can learn how to do it and apply it—how to write for results. This book provides a step-by-step, example-filled guide to the critical aspects of writing in plain English—plain language—the type of writing people understand and to which they respond favorably. Not many people refuse to read a newspaper because it is “too easy,” but lots of people avoid technical publications and barbecue grill instructions because they are “too hard” or unintelligible. Good writers are made, not born. The examples and information in this book will guide you along the process of becoming one of those “good” writers…and you may even find yourself looking forward to your next writing project.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the internet age As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of 'correct' writing? When Emmy Favilla was tasked with creating a styleguide for BuzzFeed, she opted for spelling, grammar and punctuation guidelines that would reflect how readers actually use language IRL. With wry humour and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of internet-age expression, Favilla makes a case for breaking the stuffy rules that have hitherto defined our relationship with language. Featuring priceless emoji strings, sidebars, quizzes and style debates among the most lovable word nerds of the digital media world – of which Favilla is the go-to style guru – A World Without “Whom” is essential for readers and writers of posts, tweets, texts, emails and whatever comes next.

This is the updated 2017-18 Indian Country Style Guide for editors, writers, and journalists, with a guide to definitions and proper uses and briefings on American Indian law and news-gathering in Indian Country. A valuable resource for anyone writing about Indigenous America, and patterned after the AP Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. Fully reviewed guide containing: More than 100 entries Briefing on American Indian Law Briefing on News-gathering in Indian Country Directory of indigenous nations and leaders in Washington State Directory of Indian Country Media in Washington State The Indian Country Stylebook is patterned after the Associated Press Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. The fully reviewed guide contains more than 100 entries, with correct spellings, word usage, and legal references; a briefing on American Indian Law; a briefing on news-gathering in Indian Country; a directory of indigenous nations in Washington; and a directory of Indian country media in Washington. "Indian Country Stylebook for Editors, Reporters and Writers" is designed to help its users understand Indian Country and its customs, cultures, and laws. The guidebook evolved after a panel discussion, "Tribal Nations and the Media," at the 2013 Washington Newspaper Publishers Association convention in Olympia. Questions asked at that conference made it clear that such a guidebook would be helpful: Does the First Amendment apply to journalists covering stories on Indian reservations? What is "Indian country"? What authority do Tribal governments have on- and off-reservation? What are the proper terms for the articles of clothing someone wears at a gathering? The following individuals participated in the creation of the stylebook: Richard Walker, Mexican/Yaqui, an editor for Sound Publishing Co. and correspondent for Indian Country Today; Jackie Jacobs, Lumbee, media relations coordinator for the Quileute Tribe and principal of JTalentgroup, a Seattle-based Public Relations and Marketing agency; and Gabriel Galanda, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and Amber Penn-Roco, Chehalis Tribe, Galanda Broadman, PLLC. The cover, "All Rights Reserved," was designed by the artist Louie Gong, Nooksack. The first edition of this stylebook was published as an ebook in 2014.
