A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An unlikely political star tells the inspiring story of the two-decade journey that taught her how Washington really works—and really doesn't—in A Fighting Chance As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher—an ambitious goal, given her family's modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws? Thus began an impolite education into the bare-knuckled, often dysfunctional ways of Washington. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis but became a target of the big banks. She came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Finally, at age 62, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive—and watched—Senate race in the country. In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing book, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class—and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America's government can and must do better for working families.

Ray 'Duchy' Peter has been dealt a harsh hand in life. Born a Thalidomide baby, his physical deformities led to his parents rejecting him from the moment of his birth. Ray was passed from pillar to post, never having the head start of a secure and steady upbringing. Instead he was shunted between foster parents and children's homes, unable to settle. Then personal tragedy struck and the death of his young child sent him into the depths of despair. His life began to spiral out of control, but ever the fighter, Duchy clawed his way back from the edge of the precipice. Now one of London's top bouncers, you can be sure there'll be no trouble on his patch. His other diverse achievements include being an accomplished musician and a black belt in karate. A Fighting Chance is the uplifting true story of one man's struggle to survive despite having the odds stacked against him. It is a tale of rejection, hardship, anger, violence and, above all, courage and triumph.

The Struggle Over Woman Suffrage and Black Suffrage in Reconstruction America

The advocates of woman suffrage and black suffrage came to a bitter falling-out in the midst of Reconstruction, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton opposed the 15th Amendment for granting black men the right to vote but not women. How did these two causes, so long allied, come to this? In a lively narrative of insider politics, betrayal, deception, and personal conflict, Fighting Chance offers fresh answers to this question and reveals that racism was not the only cause, but that the outcome also depended heavily on money and political maneuver. Historian Faye Dudden shows that Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, believing they had a fighting chance to win woman suffrage after the Civil War, tried but failed to exploit windows of political opportunity, especially in Kansas. When they became most desperate, they succeeded only in selling out their long-held commitment to black rights and their invaluable friendship and alliance with Frederick Douglass. Based on extensive research, Fighting Chance is a major contribution to women's history and to 19th-century political history.--From http://www.booktopia.com.au (Sep. 30, 2013).

To fight for your dreams, to fight for your marriages, to fight for your relationships, to fight for your healing that you just cannot afford to saythats just who I ambitterand thats who I have always been. Now it is time to start fighting because the only way you will get a chance in this world is only if you fight. The only way God can do anything with you is only if you fight, and his chance depends on your fight. You are the answer to the very thing you are praying for, but because you have been wounded in the past, because you have been thrown into fights, youre not fighting the way youre used to. Youre not believing the way you use to. Youre allowing hurt to define you in a way that you dont even have to anymore because you got thrown into fights. I believe that God wants to break that thing off you today, that he wants to show you that the fact you had to fight these lions and bears is not to keep you from growing. It is actually to show you that you can survive anything, that I had a hedge of protection over you all in the midst of it, and I know you did not come out without scars and wounds, but I am so good that I will use the scars and the wounds to work together for your good, so if you will get back into the fight I promise you that my word is true, that I am not a man that I should lie. I will heal and restore everything that you have lost in the fight. The lions and bears you thought were gone in your past, I am going to actually use them to show you who you have always been. You have always been a fighter. Dont stop fighting now. You have always been victorious. Dont stop now. Dont let the pressures of where you are now make you forget that you were once comfortable under pressure.

Lyla Whitney managed to escape her hometown. Since then, she's been avoiding certain things at all costs—like small-town setbacks, her family’s farm, and suffocating under too many expectations. Oh, and love, of course—but that's one thing eluding her. Aside from that, things are wonderful for her in Boston—the big city she chose to run to. That is, until her heartbroken little sister beckons her back to the very place she ran from: Whitney Farms. Lyla braces herself to be there again—but only temporarily. Only through her sister's impending divorce. What she doesn't expect is the newest—and hottest—resident at the farm. Newly single and free to do as he pleases, Gentry Bodine meets Lyla and at once, she rises to the very top of that list. His craving for her is demanding, undeniable. With an attraction so palpable, even the inexperienced and gun-shy Lyla can't resist—especially when lured with poetic, seductive notes from the unexpected southern charmer. But when they fall into temptation—of what appears as fleeting summer fun—both must decide: Will they give love a fighting chance?

This is an eye-opening portrait of two communities in Philadelphia with drastically different economic resources. Over the course of their 10-year investigation, the authors came to understand that this disparity between affluence and poverty has created a knowlege gap, far more important than mere achievement scores, with serious implications for students' economic prosperity and social mobility. At the heart of this knowledge gap is the limited ability of students from poor communities to develop information capital. This book provides powerful insights into the role that literacy can play in giving low-income students a fighting chance. Giving Our Children a Fighting Chance : documents how inequalities begin early and are reinforced by geographic concentration; compares community libraries to see how print is used in each neighbourhood and how children develop as young readers; looks at patterns that create radical differences in experiences and attitudes toward learning prior to entering school; explores the function of technology as a tool that exacerbates the divide between affluent students and those with limited access to information; and provides a comprehensive analysis of community literacy, documenting the transformation of media habits from books to computers.
