In the aftermath of the 1910 Mexican Revolution, Mexican and U.S. political leaders, business executives, and ordinary citizens shaped modern Mexico by making industrial capitalism the key to upward mobility into the middle class, material prosperity, and a new form of democracy--consumer democracy. Julio Moreno describes how Mexico's industrial capitalism between 1920 and 1950 shaped the country's national identity, contributed to Mexico's emergence as a modern nation-state, and transformed U.S.-Mexican relations. According to Moreno, government programs and incentives were central to legitimizing the postrevolutionary government as well as encouraging commercial growth. Moreover, Mexican nationalism and revolutionary rhetoric gave Mexicans the leverage to set the terms for U.S. businesses and diplomats anxious to court Mexico in the midst of the dual crises of the Great Depression and World War II. Diplomats like Nelson Rockefeller and corporations like Sears Roebuck achieved success by embracing Mexican culture in their marketing and diplomatic pitches, while those who disregarded Mexican traditions were slow to earn profits. Moreno also reveals how the rapid growth of industrial capitalism, urban economic displacement, and unease caused by World War II and its aftermath unleashed feelings of spiritual and moral decay among Mexicans that led to an antimodernist backlash by the end of the 1940s.

Delivering edge-of-your-seat suspense and breathtaking romance is what New York Times bestselling author Janelle Taylor does best. Now she returns with the story of two strangers thrown together in the face of danger, fighting to uncover the truth about the people they love. . . Don't Say A Word Newly divorced schoolteacher Mia Anderson is looking forward to exploring her identity without her ex-husband's criticism. But a frantic call from her much wilder twin Margot suddenly plunges Mia into her sister's life, which Margot has fled--leaving a dead man in her wake. Before Mia can unravel Margot's disappearance, she's faced with Matthew Gray, the dead man's distraught brother. Asking him for help is a long shot--but it's the only way to carry out a dangerous charade. . . Don't Look Back Deceit is the last thing Matthew wants in his life--it ruined his parents' marriage, and it killed his cheating brother, who was seen flirting with Margot the night he was murdered. But Mia is sure that her sister is only a pawn in this deadly game, and he can't let her investigate on her own--not when she's determined to put her own life on the line. And as they sift through clues, talking long into each night to unravel the mystery, he begins to realize that what matters most is making sure Mia isn't the next victim. . .

But Jill's life is turned upside down when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up on her doorstep late one night and delivers shocking news: Jill's ex-husband is dead.

Devastated, Mike returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart. His medical practice is in jeopardy, and he is a complete stranger to the only family he has left: his precious baby girl. Worse, he learns a shocking secret that sends him into a downward spiral. As layer upon layer of lies are revealed, Mike soon realizes that the most important battle of his life faces him on the home front, and he'll have to put it all on the line to save what's dearest to him.

Shannon Holmes -- Essence bestselling author of B-More Careful and Bad Girlz, and one of the brightest stars in urban fiction -- returns with a dramatic must-read novel inspired by his own life. Never Go Home Again is the story of Corey Dixon, a young man whose father tries as best he can to steer him away from the lure of the streets. And yet, like so many others in Corey's neighborhood, he finds the temptations of the lucrative drug trade too great to resist. While he makes fast money for a while, it is inevitable that it is he who has to pay, with his time and maybe even his life: by the age of sixteen Corey is locked up. Incarcerated in Riker's Island and then in prisons upstate, Corey lives through experiences that threaten to destroy his body, his mind, and eventually his spirit. But in the midst of his horrific imprisonment he discovers new strength to keep himself together and survive. Corey meets a few kind souls who mean him well, including a teacher who encourages him to get out of prison and make something of himself. The teacher also advises Corey to "never go home again." Though the homesick Corey does not immediately understand, he ultimately realizes the wisdom of his mentor's words. Unflinching and riveting, this story is the firsthand account of the brutal, unforgiving inner-city streets and prison life, as well as a difficult lesson in accepting responsibility and moving on.

With an introduction by Anne Enright Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book award, a story of civil war and a family's unbreakable bond. How you see a country depends on whether you are driving through it, or live in it. How you see a country depends on whether or not you can leave it, if you have to. As the daughter of white settlers in war-torn 1970s Rhodesia, Alexandra Fuller remembers a time when a schoolgirl was as likely to carry a shotgun as a satchel. This is her story - of a civil war, of a quixotic battle with nature and loss, and of a family's unbreakable bond with the continent that came to define, scar and heal them. Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award in 2002, Alexandra Fuller's classic memoir of an African childhood is suffused with laughter and warmth even amid disaster. Unsentimental and unflinching, but always enchanting, Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight is the story of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.

Going home on an Easter Sunday, Andrew Lazar must confront his distant and embittered father, Jimmy Lazar, a one-time talented minor league baseball player and Vietnam vet whose foot was amputated during the war. Although he is now recuperating from a serious heart attack, Jimmy Lazar has never recovered from his antagonism towards his son for disappointing him. His own bitterness and anger isolate him from everyone including his wife.While Andrew Lazar faces these demons, he must also struggle against his own. At a time when AIDS sufferers fought against the dual enemies of disease and ignorance, he loses one war while he achieves victory in the other. And while transcending his own suffering, he paradoxically offers his parents a chance to reform their lives as well.Going Home is a play about many things. It is a play about AIDS, a play about popular and unpopular wars, about shattered dreams and even about baseball. But most importantly, it is not all fiction. It is dedicated to one Paul Severino because it chronicles, in many ways, his real life struggles. His heroism inspired this play as it must all those who believe in the human determination to survive and prevail over suffering.
