Cambria Press Book Talk by Author Secretary Ray LaHood

Close to 300 people turned up for Secretary Ray LaHood’s talk on his new book, Seeking Bipartisanship, at Bradley University yesterday. The book, which was written with Dr. Frank H. Mackaman who heads the Dirksen Congressional Center, is an unprecedented book detailing Secretary LaHood’s efforts to bridge the partisan divide between the Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill.

The only elected Republican selected for President Obama’s Cabinet, Secretary LaHood’s work has been recognized by politicians on both sides of the aisle, such as Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago who has stated:

“Bipartisanship can work, and it should work better. Ray and I did it in Congress. My relationship with Ray is proof of that. He is a Republican; I am a Democrat. He came from downstate; I represented Chicago. He is a Lebanese American; I am a Jewish American. He supported John McCain in 2008; I supported Barack Obama. Despite all of this, we did not let what separated us prevent us from developing a great friendship. If we could work together, and we did, anything is possible.”

Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on to recommend the book:

“This much-needed book—not only for American politics but also for the American people and all who believe in democracy—is a brilliant account of how we can and should seek bipartisanship. It presents an important part of American history—when Democrats and Republicans reached across the aisle.”

Learn more about Seeking Bipartisanship, which will be released at the end of this October. Preorder now at the special price of $29.95.

Cambria Press Book Review: Building a Healthy Black Harlem

Cambria Press congratulates Jamie Wilson on the outstanding review of his book, Building a Healthy Black Harlem, by Afro-Americans in New York: Life and History. The journal praises the book for being “a valuable contribution to our knowledge of a place and time better known for its famous writers and artists than for the quotidian struggles of its workers facing racism and the structural economic trap of high rents and low wages.” It also commends the book for being “an impressive achievement that updates social history with fresh material and perspectives and makes important interventions in the literature on African American urbanization.”
