"The brilliant mind behind Party of One examines the striking social trend: people are stuck and they want to change, but..." (San Francisco Chronicle) In this book, Anneli Rufus identifies an intriguing aspect of our culture: Many of us are stuck. Be it in the wrong relationship, career, or town, or just with bad habits we can't seem to quit, we even say we want to make a change, but . . . Merging interviews, personal anecdotes, and cultural criticism, Stuck is a wise and passionate exploration of the dreams we hold dearest for ourselves-and the road to actually achieving them. When faced with the possibility of change, our minds can play tricks on us. We tell ourselves: I can't make it. Or, It's not worth the effort. How is it that in a time of unprecedented freedom and opportunity, so many of us feel utterly powerless and unsure? In this book, Rufus exposes a complex network of causes for our immobilization- from fear and denial to powerful messages in popular culture or mass media that conspire to convince us that we're helpless in the face of our cravings. But there can be a light at the end of the tunnel: Rufus also tells the stories of people who have managed to become unstuck and of others who, after much reflection, have decided that where they are is best. After all, she writes, "what looks to you like a rut, others might say is true absorption in a topic, a relation­ship, a career, a pursuit, a place. What looks to you like bore­dom, others call commitment. And even contentment." A brilliant glimpse into what truly motivates-or doesn't motivate-us, Stuck will inspire you to take a look at yourself in an entirely new light.

George Leon is a hip, hardworking magazine publisher and quite the ladies man, too. On a pretty March morning, he is driving merrily down Interstate 75 in South Florida, when a fuel tanker blows up right in front of him. Almost killed in the ensuing fire and chaos, he wants to know why, exactly, the truck erupted. An investigative journalist at heart, he soon discovers the explosion was no accident but rather part of an elaborate plot, targeting tankers along the same stretch of highway. In concert with a rookie reporter on his staff, and while courting a beautiful Latina barmaid, George closes in on a very dangerous culprit, only to end up taking a harrowing death ride - in a tanker on I-75.


Stuck Stuck in the mud. Stuck in traffic. Stuck in the middle. Stuck in a blizzard.
Stuck at work. Stuck in the past. Stuck in a rut. Stuck in a dead end job. Stuck in
marriage. Stuck in life. We've all been stuck. We all know the feeling. Helpless.

Young people are transforming the global landscape. As the human popu­lation today is younger and more urban than ever before, prospects for achieving adulthood dwindle while urban migration soars. Devastated by genocide, hailed as a spectacular success, and critiqued for its human rights record, the Central African nation of Rwanda provides a compelling setting for grasping new challenges to the world's youth. Spotlighting failed masculinity, urban desperation, and forceful governance, Marc Sommers tells the dramatic story of young Rwandans who are “stuck,” striving against near-impossible odds to become adults. In Rwandan culture, female youth must wait, often in vain, for male youth to build a house before they can marry. Only then can male and female youth gain acceptance as adults. However, Rwanda's severe housing crisis means that most male youth are on a treadmill toward failure, unable to build their house yet having no choice but to try. What follows is too often tragic. Rural youth face a future as failed adults, while many who migrate to the capital fail to secure a stable life and turn fatalistic about contracting HIV/AIDS. Featuring insightful interviews with youth, adults, and government officials, Stuck tells the story of an ambitious, controlling government trying to gov­ern an exceptionally young and poor population in a densely populated and rapidly urbanizing country. This pioneering book sheds new light on the struggle to come of age and suggests new pathways toward the attainment of security, development, and coexistence in Africa and beyond.

South Africa's ongoing incorporation into the international political economy as a global middle-power--a "bridgebuilder" between the global hegemons and those reluctant to follow their lead--has created in it a post-apartheid foreign policy that has been a bundle of contradictions and ambiguities. Through case studies of interaction with multilateral groupings and organizations, Taylor examines South African foreign policy during its ambivalent re-entry into the globalized neo-liberal political economy.

An investigation into why so few African American and Latino high school students are studying computer science reveals the dynamics of inequality in American schools. The number of African Americans and Latino/as receiving undergraduate and advanced degrees in computer science is disproportionately low, according to recent surveys. And relatively few African American and Latino/a high school students receive the kind of institutional encouragement, educational opportunities, and preparation needed for them to choose computer science as a field of study and profession. In Stuck in the Shallow End, Jane Margolis looks at the daily experiences of students and teachers in three Los Angeles public high schools: an overcrowded urban high school, a math and science magnet school, and a well-funded school in an affluent neighborhood. She finds an insidious “virtual segregation” that maintains inequality. Two of the three schools studied offer only low-level, how-to (keyboarding, cutting and pasting) introductory computing classes. The third and wealthiest school offers advanced courses, but very few students of color enroll in them. The race gap in computer science, Margolis finds, is one example of the way students of color are denied a wide range of occupational and educational futures. Margolis traces the interplay of school structures (such factors as course offerings and student-to-counselor ratios) and belief systems—including teachers' assumptions about their students and students' assumptions about themselves. Stuck in the Shallow End is a story of how inequality is reproduced in America—and how students and teachers, given the necessary tools, can change the system.

STUCK! is a manual with easy-to-follow steps and exercises for those of us who feel trapped in a negative condition which blocks us from moving forward and experiencing an exciting and fulfilling life. Some of the feelings associated with this negative condition may include: I just live day by day and don't make any plans for the future. I don't experience joy in my life. I almost never finish anything I start. I have relationship problems. On some days, nothing is right. The subsequent chapters focus very much on the emotional and spiritual processes. Techniques are offered, as well as some anecdotes which emphasize the healing benefits of the program. At the end of the book there are two special sections: one to help the inexperienced reader learn the technique of Creative Visualization and the other offers a discussion on stress and how it can be managed. Since the 1960s, John's goal has been to translate the holistic philosophy into workable techniques for positive personal change. His innovative work has emphasized the mind/body/spirit connection and the vital role of the Higher Spiritual Self in the creation and healing of disease. These techniques have been used successfully by many people needing to take charge of their lives, control stress and heal from serious physical or mental illness. John is a member of the American Holistic Health Association.

Stuck is a lightly satirical and philosophical fiction presented through the observations of Friendly, a human-like marsupial with a pouch, and her subconscious writing assistant named Soki. In 1988, Friendly (with one of her mates, Fargo) arrives on earth to find only four adult human beings alive. The two marsupials use scientific means to ensure the human species does not die out. One of their primary reasons for visiting earth in the first place is because humans (like themselves) have a developed sense of spiritual consciousness. Upon returning alone to earth twelve years later, Friendly discovers the planet is as we knew it in the year 2000. Billions of people are alive, unaware they should be dead from an unknown disease or biological mishap. What does a good marsupial do under the circumstances? While waiting for her comrades to arrive, Friendly focuses on the human neighbors in a wealthy suburb of Chicago near where she positions her hidden spacecraft. She follows Justin, an American archeologist, his spouse, Pyl, who is a college art professor, and her brother, Blake, who is an independent scientist. Each has an agenda that does not include an alien marsupial named Friendly.

From the illustrator of the #1 smash The Day the Crayons Quit comes another bestseller--a giggle-inducing tale of everything tossed, thrown, and hurled in order to free a kite! When Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree, he's determined to get it out. But how? Well, by knocking it down with his shoe, of course. But strangely enough, it too gets stuck. And the only logical course of action . . . is to throw his other shoe. Only now it's stuck! Surely there must be something he can use to get his kite unstuck. An orangutan? A boat? His front door? Yes, yes, and yes. And that's only the beginning. Stuck is Oliver Jeffers' most absurdly funny story since The Incredible Book-Eating Boy. Childlike in concept and vibrantly illustrated as only Oliver Jeffers could, here is a picture book worth rescuing from any tree.

A very funny collection of 100 X-ray images showing foreign objects ingested or inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose. The human imagination truly knows no limits. Without it, there would be no great art, no advances in science and technology, and no extreme sports. Without it, we'd also be deprived of the many insights into human nature that we get out of witnessing other people do shockingly imprudent things and then try to rationalize them. Stuck Up! capitalizes on this human capability of coming up with creative applications for everyday (and not-so everyday) items way beyond their designated uses, and features 100 X-ray images of foreign objects inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose. "It was a million-to-one shot, Doc." "My hands were full." "I fell." These and many other ludicrous excuses are what emergency room doctors hear every day from patients who check in with various items inserted where the sun don't shine, stuck in various orifices, or ingested in other ways. How exactly did that cell phone end up there? Was it on vibrate? And is the rectum truly the best place to store your bronzed baby shoes? It is at least somewhat understandable to find a rectal thermometer in its intended place, but how about your six-year-old daughter's Barbie doll? Start browsing this hilarious collection of images – you'll be surprised at the patients' creativity and the medical information provided. And: Don't try this at home....
