Boston. It seems like the perfect place for Drusilla Fortesque to escape to after the man she is secretly in love with--Captain Jack Hatton--proposes a quickie marriage in a most offhanded, insulting fashion. She refuses him and they part in bitterness, Jack to Russia and Drusilla back to the doldrums of Bath. So is it any wonder that she accepts an invitation to a new world, hoping to forget the only man who ever had her heart. Boston is a new city and a new society, with both revolutionaries and Anglophiles. She settles in nicely with her Aunt Camellia and her beautiful and naIve cousin, Ivy. As she weaves through Boston society, she learns that love in Boston is no less complicated than in London. In fact, with so much unrequited attention and love about, it is hard to know who will end up with whom. So when Sir Clive Brampton asks for Drusilla's hand in marriage, though neither of them loves the other, Drusilla considers it the best choice for her future and accepts. Drusilla believes her life to be on course, until Jack Hatton appears in Boston, making a charming impression on the ladies and complicating Drusilla's thoughts and feelings. When he asks for her help in discovering the origins of a mysterious message that could destroy his father's closest American ally, things become a bit . . . tangled. Using her social connections, Drusilla makes discoveries that bring them closer to the perpetrator, and closer to each other. But Drusilla is committed to Sir Clive, and Jack appears to be ready to propose to the most sought after beauty in Boston. Will Drusilla spend her days as the wife of a man she does not love? Will she return to a stultifying life in Bath? Or dare she hope for a chance at happiness with Jack Hatton? Anything is possible in a new world

Argues that ordinary people exercise extraordinary political courage and power in American politics when, frustrated by politics as usual, they rise up in anger and hope, and defy the authorities and the status quo rules that ordinarily govern their daily lives. By doing so, they disrupt the workings of important institutions and become a force in American politics. Drawing on critical episodes in U.S. history, Piven shows that it is in fact precisely at those seismic moments when people act outside of political norms that they become empowered to their full democratic potential.

A history of shoplifting, revealing the roots of our modern dilemma. Rachel Shteir's The Steal is the first serious study of shoplifting, tracking the fascinating history of this ancient crime. Dismissed by academia and the mainstream media and largely misunderstood, shoplifting has become the territory of moralists, mischievous teenagers, tabloid television, and self-help gurus. But shoplifting incurs remarkable real-life costs for retailers and consumers. The "crime tax"-the amount every American family loses to shoplifting-related price inflation-is more than $400 a year. Shoplifting cost American retailers $11.7 billion in 2009. The theft of one $5.00 item from Whole Foods can require sales of hundreds of dollars to break even. The Steal begins when shoplifting entered the modern record as urbanization and consumerism made London into Europe's busiest mercantile capital. Crossing the channel to nineteenth-century Paris, Shteir tracks the rise of the department store and the pathologizing of shoplifting as kleptomania. In 1960s America, shoplifting becomes a symbol of resistance when the publication of Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book popularizes shoplifting as an antiestablishment act. Some contemporary analysts see our current epidemic as a response to a culture of hyper-consumerism; others question whether its upticks can be tied to economic downturns at all. Few provide convincing theories about why it goes up or down. Just as experts can't agree on why people shoplift, they can't agree on how to stop it. Shoplifting has been punished by death, discouraged by shame tactics, and protected against by high-tech surveillance. Shoplifters have been treated by psychoanalysis, medicated with pharmaceuticals, and enforced by law to attend rehabilitation groups. While a few individuals have abandoned their sticky-fingered habits, shoplifting shows no signs of slowing. In The Steal, Shteir guides us through a remarkable tour of all things shoplifting-we visit the Woodbury Commons Outlet Mall, where boosters run rampant, watch the surveillance footage from Winona Ryder's famed shopping trip, and learn the history of antitheft technology. A groundbreaking study, The Steal shows us that shoplifting in its many guises-crime, disease, protest-is best understood as a reflection of our society, ourselves.
