              A practical plan for the millions of people in their fifties and sixties who find themselves out of work, unable to find a job, and financially incapable of retiring, Elizabeth White shows how to get past any blame or shame, overcome denial, and find a path to a new normal. Eliza...beth White has an impressive resume, which includes advanced degrees from Harvard and Johns Hopkins and a distinguished employment history. She started a business that failed and then tried to re-enter the work force in her mid-fifties, only to learn that there is little demand for workers her age. For a while Elizabeth lived in denial, but then had to adjust to her new reality, shedding the gym membership, getting a roommate, forgoing restaurant meals, and so on. She soon learned she wasn't alone: there are millions of Americans in her predicament and worse, exhausted from trying to survive and overcome every day. In 55, Underemployed, and Faking Normal, Elizabeth invites you to look beyond your immediate circumstances to what is possible in the new normal of financial insecurity. You're in your fifties and sixties, and may have saved nothing or not nearly enough to retire. It's too late for blame or shame--and it wouldn't help anyway. What you want to know is what you can do now to have a shot at a decent retirement. This relevant and well-researched book will appeal not only to those 55 plus, but to the generation coming right behind them who may face similar issues (Booklist, starred review). 55, Underemployed, and Faking Normal is a must-have for anyone whose income has suddenly diminished or even disappeared. Providing practical solutions with a focus on retirement and maximizing savings, White maintains authority with a realistic, empathetic tone throughout. This deeply useful work will resonate with aging readers of all income levels and situations (Publishers Weekly). If you're ready to get serious about feeling good again, this book is for you.

              The Socialist Alternative to Bolshevik Russia: The Socialist Revolutionary Party, 1921-39 (Paperback)

              The Socialist Revolutionary party, which had been the largest and most popular party in Russia in 1917, did not after the October Revolution just disappear into the dustbin of history , as Trotsky hoped, but - led by its leadership in exile in the 1920s and 1930s - continued to o...bserve and comment on developments in Russia. In emigration, the Socialist Revolutionary (SR) party often put forward policy proposals on a wide range of topics: policies which, based on a shrewd understanding of the real situation in Russia, offered realistic alternatives to the policies being pursued by the Marxist Bolshevik regime. This book fills a gap in examining one of the most significant Russian political parties, and is based on extensive original analysis of SR party materials, shows how it operated; how it formulated and disseminated its ideas; what these ideas were, and how the party's ideas developed in response to changing circumstances in Russia and Europe more widely. Far from being the agrarian Slavophile romantics as they are often portrayed, this book shows the SRs were energetic European modernisers who contributed vigorously to the leading debates of their day; it also shows how the SR vision of a populist, socialist regime failed to materialise as state control, dictatorship and the collectivisation of agriculture took hold.

              A Modern History of Russian Childhood examines the changes and continuities in ideas about Russian childhood during the 19th and 20th centuries. It looks at how children were thought about and treated in Russian and Soviet culture, and what this tells us about the societies they ...lived in, and how radical social and economic changes affected these children. Fundamentally, the book reveals what it was like to grow up Russian in the modern age. Focusing mainly on children in families and kinship groups, telling us much about Russian/Soviet family life in the process, Elizabeth White combines theoretical ideas about childhood with examples of real, lived experiences of children to provide a comprehensive overview of the subject. The book also offers a useful synthesis of a wide range of secondary sources in English, Russian and French, whilst utilizing various textual and visual primary sources as part of the discussion. This book is key reading for anyone wanting to understand the history of modern Russia from a social perspective or the nature and history of childhood in modern Europe.
