In Tasha Alexander's novel The Counterfeit Heiress, after an odd encounter at a grand masquerade ball, Lady Emily becomes embroiled in the murder investigation of one of the guests, a sometime actress trying to pass herself off as the mysterious heiress and world traveler Estella Lamar. Each small discovery, however, leads to more questions. Was the intended victim Miss Lamar or the imposter? And who would want either of them dead? As Emily and Colin try to make sense of all this, a larger puzzle begins to emerge: No one has actually seen Estella Lamar in years, since her only contact has been through letters and the occasional blurry news photograph. Is she even alive? Emily and Colin's investigation of this double mystery takes them from London to Paris, where, along with their friend Cécile, they must scour the darkest corners of the city in search of the truth.

Despite hundreds of books and thousands of articles on Jackie Kennedy, surprisingly little is known about her mother's role in her life and achievements. Often dismissed as a social climber who faded into the woodwork after she divorced Jackie's father-the dashing, disreputable "Black Jack" Bouvier-and married the rich Hugh D. Auchincloss, Janet not only played a pivotal part in Jackie's own wedding to JFK, but often served as a stand-in for Jackie during the White House years, and helped her cope with John and Caroline after the assassination. The only book to explore this fascinating mother-daughter relationship, Janet & Jackie is filled with stories that shed new light on the personal life of an American icon.

SYNOPSIS S P E C I F I C I N T E N T To everyone in the small enclave of Kensington, Long Island, New York, Dr. Feelgood and his wife Sophia seemed every bit the all-American happy family. He was a good looking medical student who went on to become chief of surgery at a prestigious hospital. She was his college sweetheart and the mother of his two children. With the death of Sophia on the evening of June 18th 1977, this picture perfect family became the center of one of the most shocking and sensational murder cases of the decade. At first, the community rallied around the respected surgeon, but slowly a different story began to emerge of a sleazy secret life, of a manipulative lover, and an obsessive adulterer. His good name and credibility sank further with the revelation of the existence of a mistress tucked away in Copenhagen, Denmark with two small children he had fathered. The authorities, particularly an aggressive district attorney with his eyes on the Governors chair began to tighten a noose around his neck readying an indictment for murder. Add to this is a pending malpractice law suit and a slippery slope financial crisis and we have the conditions necessary to create a fugitive from justice.

Gender Matters

For the past twenty years, the work of Michelle Z. Rosaldo has had a profound impact on feminism and anthropology. Gender Matters commemorates her central role in shaping anthropological work and points toward new directions for critical inquiry based on a reconsideration of Rosaldo's theoretical and political interventions. With the publication of Woman, Culture, and Society in 1974, Michelle Rosaldo initiated nothing less than a reconstruction of anthropology that placed feminist analysis at the center of the discipline. Through a rereading of Rosaldo's ideas and arguments, this collection provides in-depth analysis of Rosaldo's many contributions to anthropology and feminism. Each of the essays derives theoretically and politically useful insights from Rosaldo's work and sets them in motion for new intellectual and political practices. The authors do not always share Rosaldo's perspectives, nor do they necessarily agree with each other. But, together, they point to exciting syntheses of old and new feminist theory and practice. Alejandro Lugo is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Latina/o Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Bill Maurer is Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of California at Irvine.
