The bestselling author of Nickel and Dimed goes back undercover to do for America's ailing middle class what she did for the working poor Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed explored the lives of low-wage workers. Now, in Bait and Switch, she enters another hidden realm of the economy: the shadowy world of the white-collar unemployed. Armed with a plausible résumé of a professional "in transition," she attempts to land a middle-class job—undergoing career coaching and personality testing, then trawling a series of EST-like boot camps, job fairs, networking events, and evangelical job-search ministries. She gets an image makeover, works to project a winning attitude, yet is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and—again and again—rejected. Bait and Switch highlights the people who've done everything right—gotten college degrees, developed marketable skills, and built up impressive résumés—yet have become repeatedly vulnerable to financial disaster, and not simply due to the vagaries of the business cycle. Today's ultra-lean corporations take pride in shedding their "surplus" employees—plunging them, for months or years at a stretch, into the twilight zone of white-collar unemployment, where job searching becomes a full-time job in itself. As Ehrenreich discovers, there are few social supports for these newly disposable workers—and little security even for those who have jobs. Like the now classic Nickel and Dimed, Bait and Switch is alternately hilarious and tragic, a searing exposé of economic cruelty where we least expect it.

It has become routine for the U.S. government to invoke human rights to justify its foreign policy decisions and military ventures. But this human rights talk has not been supported by a human rights walk. Policymakers consistently apply a double standard for human rights norms: one the rest of the world must observe, but which the U.S. can safely ignore. Based on extensive interviews with leading foreign policymakers, military officials, and human rights advocates, Mertus tells the story of how America's attempts to promote human rights abroad have, paradoxically, undermined those rights in other countries. The second edition brings the story up to date, including new sections on the second half of the Bush administration and the Iraq War, and updates on Afghanistan. The first edition of Bait and Switch won the American Political Science Association's 2005 Best Book on Human Rights.

The most common complaint about high-conflict relationships is the extraordinary salesmanship prior to the marriage or moving in together, and the switch to chaos almost immediately after. This book is an inside look at "his" thoughts and "her" thoughts; the "Complicated Operating System" that drives the most difficult of difficult people; their conscious and unconscious reactions and interactions, and help for those who stay in the relationship. If your fairytale romance suddenly transformed into relationship chaos and you are bewildered with how the person of your dreams has morphed into someone you barely recognize—displaying hostile, unpredictable behavior that leaves you exhausted and confused--this book will hep make sense of it. If your relationship has deteriorated into one high-conflict scenario after another, and you’re trying to decide whether you should dig deep and try to make it work or cut your losses and exit safely, this straight-talking book has the answers you need. In Bait & Switch, relationship expert Megan Hunter provides an inside view of complicated relationships and the "Complicated Operating System". She offers practical strategies to help real couples deal with the behavior and ensuing conflict. Hunter explores the interactions, conscious and unconscious, that occur in a bait and switch relationship—both during the convincing “sales pitch” given before the partners commit to each other through marriage or moving into together and then immediately after, when the switch has been thrown and distressing behaviors are swiftly revealed—and recommends strategies for changing these dynamics. You’ll learn about the brain science behind this behavior, take tests to determine exactly what kind of relationship you’re dealing with, and develop new skills to help you minimize and contain the conflict in your relationship. In short, this book offers hope to stop the swirling chaos, whether you ultimately decide to stay or leave.

Romance and adventure in the vein of Susan Elia McNeal, Kathryn Miller Haines, and Rhys Bowen. It’s wartime New York, 1943. Jessica Minton, an up-and-coming young stage actress, is pondering the mixed blessings of rehearsals for a play that just doesn’t seem to be jelling, the attentions of a reliable beau she isn’t quite sure she wants to marry, and playing referee for her sister and brother-in-law’s tempestuous marriage. Just as she thinks her life couldn’t get any crazier, she becomes entangled with deceit, espionage, and murder when an unsettlingly attractive stranger makes her the unwilling custodian of a mysterious package in a Manhattan stalked by fifth columnists. Those who claim to be her allies may or may not be on the level, as Jessica is shot at, nearly stabbed in the midst of a performance, and held at gun point by a Nazi double agent. As if dodging homicide were not enough, Jessica finds herself romantically torn between her boyfriend and the elusive owner of the package–either of whom could be an Axis spy. With the help of her madcap sister Liz and a smart-aleck cat Dusty, Jessica is challenged to puzzle out whom to trust, with not just her country but her own life depending on her.
