If a young man will look around him a bit, he will find that the most successful men of the day are always the most quiet dressers. Their clothes are never conspicuous; they detract rather than attract attention. It is only the fop of shallow mind who invites attention by his dress. -from "In Matters of Dress" Edward Bok wielded enormous influence during his three-decade tenure as editor of the Ladies Home Journal, a pulpit from which he advocated numerous progressive causes, from women's suffrage and environmental preservation to public sex education and pacifism. Here, though, in this 1895 book, written just a few years after he took up the Journal's editorship, Bok spoke directly to young men about matters of gentlemanliness and good citizenship. Still a young man himself, and a highly successful one, Bok uses a sympathetic, comradely voice-never a stern or strict one-to convey useful advice on how a young man should comport himself in business, in romance, and in society at large. It's advice that is still relevant today. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Bok's Dollars Only and his autobiography, The Americanization of Edward Bok. American Pulitzer Prize-winning author EDWARD W. BOK (1863-1930) also wrote Two Persons: An Incident and an Epilogue and America Give Me a Chance, among other books.

Inuit Women is the definitive study of the Inuit during a time of rapid change. Written shortly after the creation of Nunavut, a new province carved out of traditional Inuit homelands in the Canadian North, this compelling book combines conclusions drawn from the authors' fourteen years of ethnographic research with the stories of Inuit women and men, told in their own words. Inuit Women also explores global issues: the impact of rapid social change and Canadian resettlement policy on Inuit culture; women's roles in society; and gender relations in Baffin Island, in the Eastern Arctic. Billson and Mancini also include an extensive section on how the newly created territory of Nunavut is impacting the lives of Inuit women and their families. This book stands alone in its attention to Inuit women's issues and lives and should be read by everyone interested in gender relations, development, modernization, globalization, and Inuit culture.
Is the fact that you would like to be a success in every part of your life but just don't know how making your life difficult... maybe even miserable?Does it seem like you've tried everything in your power to figure it out, and yet, despite your best intentions, you're still plagued with: Not knowing how to even get started Not understanding why people fail Not knowing what empowerment for success meansSuccess, just like any other thing is definitely not an accident. It happens for a reason and on purpose, whether people strive for it or not. Success is a wonderful world and concept. People have always been striving for it all through their lives. And many people have long been pursuing success; others start their journey towards it and often find it immediately. Success to some means domination and capture of another.
