"This book is a moving memoir experience: a must read. The dramatic life cycle rise of a youthful sixties political revolutionary, my friend Aaron Dixon."—Bobby Seale, founding chairman and national organizer of the Black Panther Party, 1966 to 1974 "My People Are Rising: A Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain is the most authentic book ever written by a member of the Black Panther Party. Aaron Dixon does a superb job of presenting life in the party from the perspective of a foot soldier—a warrior for the cause of revolutionary change and black power in America. He pulls no punches and holds nothing back in writing honestly about those times (late 1960s and during the 1970s) as he successfully presents a visual picture of the courage, commitment, and sometimes shocking brutality of life as a Panther activist. This is an unforgettable must read book!"—Larry Gossett, chair, Metropolitan King County Council In an era of stark racial injustice and decisive action, Aaron Dixon dedicated his life to the struggle for change, founding the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968 at age nineteen. Through his eyes, we see the courage of a generation that stood up to injustice, their political triumphs and tragedies, and the unforgettable legacy of Black Power. Aaron Dixon was co-founder and captain of the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party. He has since founded various non-profits for Seattle youth and run as a Green Party candidate in the 2006 Senate race. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

The Virginia State Constitution examines constitutional amendments, court decisions, attorney general opinions, and legislative deliberations bearing on the development and interpretation of the Virginia Constitution. The book contains a detailed history of the Virginia Constitution, with particular attention to key moments in the state's constitutional development, from the 1776 Constitution through the current 1971 Constitution. The book also includes a provision-by-provision commentary on the evolution and meaning of each section of the Virginia Constitution. The second edition brings this material up to date through mid-2013 and analyzes a number of constitutional developments with important implications for governance. Among the recent amendments covered in this volume is an amendment barring recognition of same-sex marriages and civil unions, and an amendment that undertook a major revision of the provision limiting the eminent domain power. The book examines several recent state court decisions of note, including the state supreme court's first interpretation of the provision guaranteeing "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" and various court decisions limiting the power to levy taxes. The book also analyzes recent attorney general opinions with significant implications for legislative appropriations to non-profit groups, along with various other legislative initiatives. The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States is an important series that reflects a renewed international interest in constitutional history and provides expert insight into each of the 50 state constitutions. Each volume in this innovative series contains a historical overview of the state's constitutional development, a section-by-section analysis of its current constitution, and a comprehensive guide to further research.

Alan Tarr, Director of the Center on State Constitutional Studies at Rutgers University, this series provides essential reference tools for understanding state constitutional law.

I like the title and the structure a lot, it gives a strong feeling of combining strong factual base with concrete advice/principles. There are several aspects that I feel I need to learn more about after reading the first chapter and that I believe is a good sign! - It clearly shows that you are an authority in the field and that you know this broadly and deeply - The references to Branson, Yunus et al are very good and strong proof points, actually I would buy the book just for learning more about their stories from this leadership/work structure perspective. Ericsson, Billing & Customer Care, Sweden Your approach in the book is very practical. This I believe will be most helpful to the practitioner. You have managed to distil theory into good bite size chunks that will be very helpful to someone out in the field. I enjoyed reading it. Overall, I loved it. There are some strong linkages with Semlers 1993 book Maverick. *** Organisational Design: What Your University Forgot to Teach You by Andrew Olivier is an in-depth analysis of Dr. Elliott Jaques's organizational design model. In addition to coining the concept of a "mid-life crisis," Dr. Jaques was both renowned and criticized by his peers in the 1960s and 1970s for organizational models that contradicted the norm and left little room for interpretation. As a business consultant, Olivier states he has successfully applied Jaques's theories to his client companies throughout his career and provides case studies showcasing the model in action. This is no mean feat, as the model is exceptionally dense and layered. It is comprised of seven "key principles," in which four "domains" and seven "work levels" are housed, as well as complexity-based design theory, event sequencing, and time-focused systems. Despite the confusing relationship between the theories, systems, domains, principles, sequences, and levels, the individual concepts are logical, if not banal. For example, Olivier describes the fifth principle on "Empowering Role Relationships" as "agree on authority levels for role relationships and ensure understanding to all stakeholders." Olivier notes that he wanted to write Organisational Design to provide an "entry point into this body of knowledge" because he believes Jaques's work has been unfairly marginalized due to its incompatibility with other organizational design theories. (One detractor quoted here notes that "any theory not open to inclusion with existing theories is doomed to expulsion from the academic ranks.") Standing on its own, Jaques's seven work levels, providing a map for building an organization's personnel structure, is Indeed useful. And Olivier's table on page 27 breaking down each level's goals and Suggested timeframe is worth reviewing. But while his enthusiasm for both the model and man are apparent, Olivier generally fails to dissect the complicated approach in a manner that will be accessible for those unfamiliar with Jaques's work. His book may be valuable for advanced organizational psychologists but is not recommended for novice and intermediate design specialists. -Blueink Review

W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement. Du Bois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history. Written in very accessible prose, these two booklets, originally published in 1930, allowed W. E. B. Du Bois to reach a wide audience with an interest in Africa. What is so incredible about the two Africa booklets is their lasting relevance and value to the study of Africa today. Coupling Du Bois's breadth of scholarship with his passion for the subjects, the analyses in these booklets are integral to the study of Africa. Many of his arguments foreshadowed the issues and debates regarding Africa in the twentieth century. Expertly synthesized in an introduction by Emmanuel Akyeampong, this edition of the two Africa booklets is essential for anyone interested in African history.

It examines the industry's origins, structure, economic, social and environmental impacts, education, training and career opportunities, and the industry's future development. It also explores its links with the wider tourism industry, and suggests that there should be a realignment of these links, putting a greater focus on designing, executing and measuring meeting and convention contents so that they have a purposeful impact on participants, thus creating greater value for stakeholders.
