This book reports on Simon Verduijn’s (1985) PhD research on a variety of individuals who try to leave their mark on the IJsselmeer area, the Netherlands. These individuals are regarded as policy entrepreneurs: people that strategically employ framing and networking strategies to advocate or oppose policy change by setting the public, policy and political agendas. The book discusses relevant literature on policy entrepreneurship, framing and networking strategies, and agenda setting. The empirical research comprises an in-depth study of four cases, involving semi-structured interviews, document study and newspaper article analysis. The first case selected concerns the Second Delta Committee, which set the agenda for water safety and climate adaptation in the Dutch Delta, and recommended a substantial increase in the water level of the IJsselmeer. The second case concentrates on policy entrepreneurs who pushed for a change in Dutch nature policy, advocating a focus on nature development over nature preservation. The third case considers policy entrepreneurs’ support or opposition to plans to realise outer-dike urbanisation and build an infrastructural connection—either a bridge or tunnel—through the Markermeer-IJmeer. The final case looks at policy entrepreneurs who advocated or opposed plans to create large clusters of wind turbines close to the historical village of Urk. The study reveals how policy entrepreneurs employ various framing and networking strategies, exploit the use of visualisations, frame issues at stake differently, and frame themselves and others. Insights are also offered into how policy entrepreneurs cope with the enabling and constraining factors of context, with their various strategies, resulting in successes as well as failures.

Helen and Scott Nearing, authors of Living the Good Life and many other bestselling books, lived together for 53 years until Scott's death at age 100. Loving and Leaving the Good Life is Helen's testimonial to their life together and to what they stood for: self-sufficiency, generosity, social justice, and peace. In 1932, after deciding it would be better to be poor in the country than in the city, Helen and Scott moved from New York Ciy to Vermont. Here they created their legendary homestead which they described in Living the Good Life: How to Live Simply and Sanely in a Troubled World, a book that has sold 250,000 copies and inspired thousands of young people to move back to the land. The Nearings moved to Maine in 1953, where they continued their hard physical work as homesteaders and their intense intellectual work promoting social justice. Thirty years later, as Scott approached his 100th birthday, he decided it was time to prepare for his death. He stopped eating, and six weeks later Helen held him and said goodbye. Loving and Leaving the Good Life is a vivid self-portrait of an independent, committed and gifted woman. It is also an eloquent statement of what it means to grow old and to face death quietly, peacefully, and in control. At 88, Helen seems content to be nearing the end of her good life. As she puts it, "To have partaken of and to have given love is the greatest of life's rewards. There seems never an end to the loving that goes on forever and ever. Loving and leaving are part of living." Helen's death in 1995 at the age of 92 marks the end of an era. Yet as Helen writes in her remarkable memoir, "When one door closes, another opens." As we search for a new understanding of the relationships between death and life, this book provides profound insights into the question of how we age and die.

Rounding the Mark is the seventh darkly humorous novel in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series. He began swimming in slow, broad strokes. The sea smelled harsh, stinging his nostrils like champagne, and he nearly got drunk on it . . . In a fraction of a second, Montalbano realized he'd struck a human foot. Somebody else was floating right beside him, and he hadn't noticed."Excuse me," he said hastily, flipping back onto his belly and looking over at the other. The person beside him didn't answer, because he wasn't doing the dead man's float. He was actually dead. And, to judge from the way he looked, he'd been so for quite a while. Increasingly disillusioned with his government and the world in general, Inspector Montalbano is considering retirement. He is starting to feel his age, and even his favourite restaurant has closed. But when he bumps into a dead body during a bracing swim, his detective instincts are aroused once more. Particularly when the most likely identity of the victim is a man already long buried . . . Rounding the Mark is followed by the eighth novel in the series The Patience of the Spider.

Luke Brighton, the Earl of Edentown, surveyed the land. The sun shone in the sky but there was an unmistakable oppression covering everything. The earth was hard, barley yielding any nutrients for the crops the people of Olddenburg needed. And still, even with these paltry harvests, King Matar continually demanded more. More taxes, more laws, more judgment ...something needed to change. The earl had come many years ago with the intent of making a difference, but the townspeople shut him off. Even those on his own property could not understand what he meant when he spoke of freedom. He knew the time was coming when he would need to make his move. The people of Olddenburg and his young wards deserved more than this meager lifestyle. He was the one who could bring it to pass, but would they recognize it? Would those of his household have the courage to walk in true freedom or had they grown too accepting of their fate with King Matar? Come, find out, as you enter a world where one family can change the fate of the entire realm.

This study of Mark Twain as a public figure concentrates on Twain's herohood during his lifetime. Beginning with a summary of the tributes that came at Twain's death, Budd shows his stature as a public treasure. He discusses Twain's overlapping roles as lecturer, newspaperman, humorist, businessman, author, family man and reformer, as well as his continual attention to his image as he molded and sustained it through the newspaper world. Budd's analysis serves as a corrective for those who focus on Twain's private guilts and pessimism. ISBN 0-8122-7881-X : $21.95.

How to Beat Your Kids without Leaving a Mark is a testament to the most thankless job in the world raising children as a single mom. Author Liz M. Mendoza draws on her experiences as a single mother to share the nitty-gritty details of modern motherhood, from the good to the bad to the ugly, and everything in between. She explains how the birth of a child changes your life in more ways than you can ever imagine. Old desires and concerns are replaced by one all-consuming struggle to protect and nurture. Life soon becomes an endless string of sleepless nights, anxiety-filled days, and broken hearts, punctuated by rare fleeting moments of bliss. Ultimately, in her experience, parenthood becomes a contest of wills between mother and child; it was during this always-smoldering battle for supremacy where Mendoza learned how, through guile and cunning, to always stay one step ahead of her son: where she learned how to beat her son without leaving a mark.

Get ready to ride the range of humor in one of the most entertaining westerns to come down the trail in quite a spell. The year is 1888, and Johnny Hightree and his cousin Asa Maynard are two old ex-buffalo hunters and frontiersmen who have temporarily settled in the small town of Ralston, Kansas, not far from Dodge City. They are both serious elbow-benders and seem to be in a constant state of semi-inebriation. Johnny, however, has endeared himself to the town's residents with his far-fetched windies and good nature, thereby getting himself elected mayor. When a fatal shooting occurs in town with several witnesses including Johnny, the town council curiously reduces Johnny's position from mayor to town marshal. Johnny then chooses his half-pickled cousin Asa to be his deputy, and that's when the future of Ralston, Kansas gets changed forever. With an amusing, rambling style, Johnny Hightree relates the progress of solving a murder that is not as simple as it seemed in the beginning. The outlandish stories he tosses in along the way are funny, earthy, and downright priceless, told at a pace that ends just in time!
