All Played Out Book Excerpt:

In the third book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s Rusk University series, a good girl is about to find out what happens when she creates the ultimate college bucket list and she sets her sights on a jock. First person in her family to go to college? CHECK. Straight A’s? CHECK. On track to graduate early? CHECK. Social life? …..yeah, about that…. With just a few weeks until she graduates, Antonella DeLuca’s beginning to worry that maybe she hasn’t had the full college experience. (Okay... Scratch that. She knows she hasn't had the full college experience). So Nell does what a smart, dedicated girl like herself does best. She makes a "to do" list of normal college activities. Item #1? Hook up with a jock. Rusk University wide receiver Mateo Torres practically wrote the playbook for normal college living. When he’s not on the field, he excels at partying, girls, and more partying. As long as he keeps things light and easy, it's impossible to get hurt... again. But something about the quiet, shy, sexy-as-hell Nell gets under his skin, and when he learns about her list, he makes it his mission to help her complete it. Torres is the definition of confident (And sexy. And wild), and he opens up a side of Nell that she's never known. But as they begin to check off each crazy, exciting, normal item, Nell finds that her frivolous list leads to something more serious than she bargained for. And while Torres is used to taking risks on the field, he has to decide if he's willing to take the chance when it's more than just a game. Together they will have to decide if what they have is just part of the experiment or a chance at something real.

All Lined Up Book Excerpt:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights. In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both. Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past. But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again. Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated. Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter. And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

All Broke Down Book Excerpt:

In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one. Environmental issues, civil rights, education—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and not at all her type, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause. Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help. Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Playing to Win Book Excerpt:

When dating is a lottery, you have to play to win. Best friends since freshman year at Midwestern State University, Sully and Kate have been playing, and losing, the dating game for four long years, comparing notes along the way. Kate is sure that personality trumps all, and Sully refuses to settle for anything less than perfect chemistry, but they're both determined to find The One. Finally, after graduation, it looks like they might have landed their winning tickets--there's just one problem: it turns out, after years living as strictly platonic roommates, sparks have begun to fly at home. But Kate needs her best friend--Sully is the only safety net she has left. Add in the stress of figuring out her life plan post-college, a hot mess of a family situation threatening to suck her back in, and the fear of not living up to Sully's super high bar for sexual chemistry, and feelings or not, kissing that frog might be too big of a risk. Either way, the rules of the game they've been playing have changed. And Kate and Sully are rapidly approaching a crisis their friendship might not survive. Not unless they're willing to go all in. For fans of Christina Lauren's Wild Nights and Cora Carmack's Rusk University series, Playing to Win is the first book in an all new, scorchingly hot romantic comedy series from the author of Daughter of a Thousand Years and From Asgard, With Love, Amalia Dillin/Carosella.

Playing House Book Excerpt:

When you bet on love, the house always wins. All Violet has ever wanted is to run her family's barbecue restaurant, the locally famous Fowler's. Now, with her parents away on a long overdue vacation, and her brother living his own dreams elsewhere, it's time to prove she has what it takes to keep her family's legacy alive. But left alone with her fears of failure, she might be starting to buckle under the pressure. When Abraham O'Sullivan lands at Fowler's on his way back home, his dreams of playing professional hockey shattered by injury, a driven, delightful, and all grown-up Violet makes him an offer he can't refuse: instead of the move back in with his parents and the I told you so he's dreading, he can house-sit with her while he figures out his next step-staring down a post-hockey future that's arrived well before he'd formed any kind of plan. Once she starts playing house with Sex-God O'Sullivan, it doesn't take long before the overstressed Violet's focus fractures. With Abe, for the first time ever, she's found something she wants as much as Fowler's, and those mutual feelings are a threat to everything they've both worked toward with single-minded drive. They'll each have to decide if being together is worth giving up the greatest loves of their lives. For fans of Christina Lauren's Wild Nights and Cora Carmack's Rusk University series, PLAYING HOUSE is the third book in the all new, scorchingly hot romantic comedy Playing to Win series from the author of Daughter of a Thousand Years and From Asgard, With Love, Amalia Dillin/Carosella.

The United States Constitution Book Excerpt:

The United States Constitution is the oldest written constitution in the world. But what were its origins? Is it a “living” organism or, as the only alternative, a dead one? What influence, if any, has the U.S. Constitution had on Asian countries? Twenty scholars from around the world set out to pose answers to these questions. The result of their efforts is this book which looks at the U.S. Constitution from a global perspective. At times reinforcing existing knowledge, at times breaking new ground, the authors provide new insights into the role the U.S. Constitution has played in the development of governments in the two hundred years since its inception in 1787.

The Road to Confrontation Book Excerpt:

Concentrating on U.S. concerns for credibility abroad, Stueck uses recently declassified documents and many interviews to analyze the origins of the Sino-American confrontation in Korea in late 1950. He demonstrates how personalities (Secretary of State Marshall and General MacArthur) and bureaucracies (the State Department and the Joint Chiefs of Staff) influenced policy development and how congressional penny-pinching reduced prospects for a prudent American course in Korea.

Dean Rusk Book Excerpt:

Dean Rusk compared his position as secretary of state in the 1960s to a soldier in a foxhole, defending America against the communist alliance. Author Thomas W. Zeiler writes that the foxhole really represented the universalist ideals Rusk cherished, beliefs that were overrun by the Cold War, by the realism of the two presidents he served, and ultimately by the Vietnam War. With an eye closely on Rusk's liberal internationalism, Dean Rusk uses the secretary of state as a foil to explain to students the accomplishments of United States leadership in the world and the pitfalls the nation encountered due to the tensions between realpolitik and liberal ideology. Through the career of Rusk, the book reflects on the uses and abuses of predominant power in diplomacy, and interprets well-known events and issues in the comparative framework of idealism and realism. In explaining Rusk's policies and decisions, it also analyzes the evolving uses and interpretations of Wilsonianism, the major ideology shaping twentieth-century American diplomacy. Dean Rusk follows the course of the Cold War, the defining international conflict of the last 50 years.

Frenzy is perhaps Hitchcock's most nakedly autobiographical film, representing both a comeback and farewell to the city of his birth. Ian Cooper discusses the evolution of the film, its production, reception, and place in Hitchcock's oeuvre, as well as its status as a key film of "sleazy Seventies" British cinema.
