There was a time when America’s working class was seen as the backbone of the American economy, having considerable political, economic, and moral authority. But the working class we have now—far more female and racially diverse and employed by the fast food, retail, health care, and other service industries—has been marginalized, if not ignored, by politicians and pundits. This is changing, swiftly and dramatically. Today’s working class is a sleeping giant. And as Tamara Draut makes abundantly clear, it is just now waking up to its untapped political power. Sleeping Giant is the first major examination of the new working class and the role it will play in our economic and political future. Blending moving individual narratives, historical background, and sophisticated analysis, Draut forcefully argues that this newly energized class is far along in the process of changing America for the better. Draut examines the legacy of exclusion based on race and gender that contributes to the invisibility of the new working class, despite their entwinement in everyone’s day-to-day life. No longer confined to the assembly line, today’s working class watches our children and cares for our parents. They park our cars, screen our luggage, clean our offices, and cook and serve our meals. They are us. With “Fight for $15” minimum-wage protests popping up throughout the country (and in some places winning) and economic inequality being recognized as one of the defining issues of our time, today’s working class will soon become impossible to ignore and foolish to dismiss. Sleeping Giant is the first book to tell the story of this extraordinary transformation in full and inspiring detail. From the Hardcover edition.

"17 years ago: A girl in South Dakota falls through the earth, then wakes up dozens of feet below ground on the palm of what seems to be a giant metal hand. Today: She is a top-level physicist leading a team of people to understand exactly what that hand is, where it came from, and what it portends for humanity. A swift and spellbinding tale told almost exclusively through transcriptions of interviews conducted by a mysterious and unnamed character, this is a unique debut that describes a hunt for truth, power, and giant body parts"--

The book is aimed at fundraisers of all levels, of non-profit organizations, small and large. It is filled with many practical examples aimed at starting and growing a monthly giving program. It contains how-to approaches from countries all over the world, case studies, plans, results, and it covers ‘old’ and ‘new’ media such as Direct Mail, Face-to-Face, email, Text giving, Telemarketing and many more, all aimed at generating sustainable revenue for non-profits. “The topic of monthly giving is one that should be of great interest to fundraisers and organizations, but there are less than a handful of books on the subject”, Erica Waasdorp says. Erica’s insight to sustainer giving is spot-on. I’ve used her best-in-class concepts to build a variety of monthly giving programs for a variety of clients. And committed donors really enjoy this special relationship they have with their favorite charity.” “Monthly giving rocks. Its payoff is in relative terms quick, and pending you caring for them greatly, long as well. It isn't about monthly giving versus another type of giving for your program. It's about how you can make monthly giving work. It co-exists peacefully with everything else you do. And any fundraiser who chooses not to focus on monthly giving as a core part of what they do does so at their peril.”

Mainstream America has for too long been the sleeping giant of American politics. As mainstream Americans, we mind our own business, take care of our own responsibilities, and play by the rules. We know that there is no quick path to personal success or to national prosperity. But the ruling class has come to see the mainstream as largely irrelevant as a political force, when we are the backbone that supports the body politic. We work, pay our taxes, and vote. Then we go back to work and hope that those in power will do the right thing. We have trusted the dogs of the political class to guard our lunch, and they have eaten it. Something needs to change. Before we can equip the sleeping giant for the struggle ahead of us, however, we need to wake that sleeping giant. Waking the Sleeping Giant exposes liberal techniques and teaches mainstream Americans how to counter them to take back the country that our forebears made great, and to make it great again.

Although the title of this book is 'Waking up the sleeping giant', it does not narrate a fairy tale about a beautiful princess who marries the most charming and rich prince, after succeeding to run away from a giant that himself wanted to marry the princess. This book is about the reality of the 'sleeping giant', and the consequence it brings to today's society. 'Waking up the sleeping giant' is a challenge to be taken up by many people. If this giant really wakes up, society will have a chance to experience a breath of fresh air that gives life a worthy cause and a meaningful reason to live. One might ask but who is this sleeping giant? What does this sleeping giant have to offer if upon wakening, the world can be a better place to live in? This sleeping giant can refer to you, to a family member of yours or maybe to some of your friends. The sleeping giant can represent Christians who, although they do good things in their lives, being active in the church and in the community around them, are still not doing God's will in their lives. The sleeping giant can be those of us who in the moment of truth to proclaim the Good News, to be witnesses in society and go against the current, eventually will not stand up as Christians and defend their morals and values. The sleeping giant represents all those who proclaim that they are Christians, but through their lives hardly proclaim the Good News... they are 'lukewarm' in their faith. The aim of this book is to reach out to this sleeping giant and to gently provoke and inspire the giant to wake up. This book proposes to make this giant stand up and be a witness of God's love to society.

From the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day The Romans have long since departed and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But, at least, the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. Axl and Beatrice, a couple of elderly Britons, decide that now is the time, finally, for them to set off across this troubled land of mist and rain to find the son they have not seen for years, the son they can scarcely remember. They know they will face many hazards—some strange and otherworldly—but they cannot foresee how their journey will reveal to them the dark and forgotten corners of their love for each other. Nor can they foresee that they will be joined on their journey by a Saxon warrior, his orphan charge, and a knight—each of them, like Axl and Beatrice, lost in some way to his own past, but drawn inexorably toward the comfort, and the burden, of the fullness of a life’s memories. Sometimes savage, sometimes mysterious, always intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade tells a luminous story about the act of forgetting and the power of memory, a resonant tale of love, vengeance, and war. From the Hardcover edition.
