Seeking Bipartisanship a Must Now All the More

bipartisanship

A recent Pew report noted that “a large majority of the public wants the new president to work closely with members of the opposing party in Congress (76%)” and that “Overall, 50% say it is either very (10%) or somewhat (41%) likely that Donald Trump will work with Democrats in Washington on important issues, while about as many (49%) say they think this is very (20%) or somewhat (29%) unlikely.”

Given the divisive nature of the 2016 presidential election, the objective of seeking bipartisanship is going to be even more difficult–yet more crucial–than ever. It has been done before by Secretary Ray LaHood who wrote the book on it, literally with Frank H. Mackaman.

The book, aptly titled Seeking Bipartisanhip, has been praised by Republicans and Democrats. This fascinating read provides remarkable insights on how Washington works and what needs to change. Order this book on Amazon today and get free shipping!

Cambria Press Publication Announcement: Krausism and the Spanish Avant-Garde

cambria-press

Cambria Press is excited to announce that Krausism and the Spanish Avant-Garde: The Impact of Philosophy on National Culture by Professor Christian Rubio will be released soon. See it hot off the presses at the Cambria Press booth at the #MLA17 annual convention.

Mark P. Del Mastro, Chair and Professor of Hispanic Studies at the College of Charleston, praises the book because

Christian Rubio provides a refreshing, clearly articulated and well-researched study on the impact of Krausism on Spain and the avant-garde movement via the notion of ‘Europeanization,’ while he challenges traditional critical trends that persist with categorizing Spanish literature within generations. In addition, Rubio devotes a much-needed, entire chapter on Krausism’s impact on Spanish women, while at the same time underscoring the importance of the often overlooked contributions by Rosario Acuña and Carmen de Burgos. This important book is a necessary reference for anyone interested in Krausism, the Spanish avant-garde, and Spanish history and culture at the turn of the twentieth century

Learn more about Krausism and the Spanish Avant-Garde and read more reviews.

Recommend this book to your library for their Spanish history, literary criticism, and culture collections.
