In today's increasingly diverse, global, interconnected business world, diversity and inclusion (D&I) is no longer just "the right thing to do," it is a core leadership competency and central to the success of business. Working effectively to combat unconscious bias across differences such as gender, culture, generational, race, and sexual orientation not only leads to a more productive, innovative corporate culture but also to a better engagement with customers and clients. The Inclusion Dividend provides a framework to tap the bottom-line impact that results from an inclusive culture. Most leaders have the intent to be inclusive, however translating that intent into a truly inclusive outcome with employees, customers, and other stakeholders requires a focused change effort. The authors explain that challenge and provide straightforward advice on how to achieve the kind of meritocracy that will result in a tangible dividend and move companies ahead of their competition.

Excerpt from The Gove Book: History and Genealogy of the American Family of Gove, and Notes of European Goves Interest in the preparation of the Gove genealogy was aroused to a very limited extent nearly a hundred years ago; but Humphrey Nichols Gove (No. 468) was the first person known to have begun such a compilation. Others later became interested in collecting material of the branches with which they were intimately connected. The first attempt to make a complete genealogy of the family was begun by Ira Gove (No. 533) of Weare, N. H., about the beginning of the Civil War. His arranged manuscript was finally prepared in book form, which numbered some two hundred and fifty pages of foolscap size and shape. Sometime before his death, which occurred in 1891, when he was eighty-six years of age, he placed it, together with his correspondence and notes, in the possession of Hon. William Henry Gove (No. 1967) of Salem, Mass. The latter continued the researches of Ira Gove, and increased the extent of the work until in 1901 he had tripled the collated material by his personal labor and paid assistance, by examination of records and correspondence, in Europe and America. He caused to be examined the vital records of many towns in New England and thousands of directories of cities and towns in various sections of the United States for names, addresses and occupations of Goves, and visited many of the families in remote sections. Subsequently, he began a systematic arrangement of all the material that had been gathered, and had it nearly completed at the time of his decease, in the spring of 1920. Mrs. Gove, his widow, has caused the work to be completed, and by her generosity this volume now appears in the form in which Mr. Gove would have issued it if he had lived a little longer. It has cost Mr. and Mrs. Gove many thousands of dollars, only a small part of which will be refunded through sales. The successful prosecution of a great work which Mr. Gove sought so many years to attain will be Mrs. Gove's reward.

Winner of the 2014 Jordan Schnitzer Book Award presented by the Association for Jewish Studies Jews have played an integral role in the history of obscenity in America. For most of the 20th century, Jewish entrepreneurs and editors led the charge against obscenity laws. Jewish lawyers battled literary censorship even when their non-Jewish counterparts refused to do so, and they won court decisions in favor of texts including Ulysses, A Howl, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and Tropic of Cancer. Jewish literary critics have provided some of the most influential courtroom testimony on behalf of freedom of expression. The anti-Semitic stereotype of the lascivious Jew has made many historians hesitant to draw a direct link between Jewishness and obscenity. In Unclean Lips, Josh Lambert addresses the Jewishness of participants in obscenity controversies in the U.S. directly, exploring the transformative roles played by a host of neglected figures in the development of modern and postmodern American culture. The diversity of American Jewry means that there is no single explanation for Jews' interventions in this field. Rejecting generalizations, this bookoffers case studies that pair cultural histories with close readings of both contested texts and trial transcripts to reveal the ways in which specific engagements with obscenity mattered to particular American Jews at discrete historical moments. Reading American culture from Theodore Dreiser and Henry Miller to Curb Your Enthusiasm and FCC v. Fox, Unclean Lips analyzes the variable historical and cultural factors that account for the central role Jews have played in the struggles over obscenity and censorship in the modern United States.
