"There is nothing gutsier to me than a person announcing that their story is one that deserves to be told," writes Lena Dunham, and it certainly takes guts to share the stories that make up her first book, Not That Kind of Girl. These are stories about getting your butt touched by the seventy-two-year-old lawyer you're temping for, about friendship and dieting (kind of) and having two existential crises before the age of 20. Stories about travel, both successful and less so, and about having the kind of sex where you feel like keeping your sneakers on in case you have to run away during the act. Stories about proving yourself to a room of 50-year-old men in Hollywood and showing up to "an outlandishly high-fashion event with the crustiest red nose you ever saw." Fearless, smart, and as heartbreakingly honest as ever, Not That Kind of Girl establishes Lena Dunham as more than a hugely talented director, actress and producer - it announces her as a fresh and vibrant new literary voice. Includes an original song by Jack Antonoff.

While a great deal of research has gone into the determinants of inter-state bargaining efficacy, current explanations often fail to predict the success of a bargaining episode. To fill the theoretical gap, two elements need to be considered. Often, asymmetrical interdependence is thought of as a source of bargaining power. But, the nature of the good that creates the asymmetrical interdependence has not been examined. I test whether the price of the good affects bargaining power and the relevance of the separation of purpose literature in the context of inter-state bargaining. Does the level of domestic political unity in the target state affect bargaining outcomes? The findings suggest that the price of the good leveraged in an instance of inter-state bargaining and the level of domestic political unity affect the bargaining result. As the price of the leveraged good rises, bargaining power increases. And, higher levels of domestic unity in the target state increase the sender state''s bargaining efficacy. I also use the findings to develop a framework to explain the efficacy of Russia''s post-2000 inter-state gas bargaining with energy dependent CIS members.
This study is an empirical examination of the first contract arbitration model available in the province of British Columbia (B.C.), Canada, which features a unique focus on mediation as an alternative, preferred method for resolving first contract disputes. The B.C. model allows a mediator to issue non-binding recommendations for the terms of the first collective bargaining agreement, which are accorded considerable deference by subsequent arbitrators and courts. The key goal of this model is to establish first collective bargaining agreements and enduring bargaining relationships without resorting to arbitration. The assumption underlying this model is that agreements voluntarily reached by the parties, even with the assistance of a mediator, better achieve this goal than arbitration. Through data analysis and interviews with key participants in the B.C. model, this study empirically tests the validity of this assumption and the impact of mediator’s recommendations. The data confirm that parties who accept the mediator’s recommendations are the most likely to obtain a first collective bargaining agreement (at 97.4%) and be in a current bargaining relationship (at 82.1%).
A Leadership Network Publication A New Kind of Christian's conversation between a pastor and his daughter's high school science teacher reveals that wisdom for life's most pressing spiritual questions can come from the most unlikely sources. This stirring fable captures a new spirit of Christianity–where personal, daily interaction with God is more important than institutional church structures, where faith is more about a way of life than a system of belief, where being authentically good is more important than being doctrinally «right,» and where one's direction is more important than one's present location. Brian McLaren's delightful account offers a wise and wondrous approach for revitalizing Christian spiritual life and Christian congregations.
