The myth-shattering account of the most famous and most taboo love story in rock-and-roll history Child Bride reveals the hidden story of rock icon Elvis Presley’s love affair with fourteen-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu, the ninth-grader he wooed as a G.I. in Germany and cloistered at Graceland before marrying her to fulfill a promise to her starstruck parents. Award-winning biographer Suzanne Finstad perceptively pieces together the clues from candid interviews with all the Presley intimates—including Priscilla herself, along with hundreds of sources who have never before spoken publicly—to uncover the surprising truths behind the legend of Elvis and Priscilla, a tumultuous tale of sexual attraction and obsession, heartbreak and loss. Child Bride, the only major biography of Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, unveils the controversial child-woman who evolved from a lonely and sexually precocious teenager kept by the King of Rock and Roll into a shrewd businesswoman in control of the multimillion-dollar Elvis Presley empire, a rags-to-riches saga of secrets and betrayals that began when Priscilla was only three years old. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Most in the United States likely associate the concept of the child bride with the mores and practices of the distant past. But Nicholas L. Syrett challenges this assumption in his sweeping and sometimes shocking history of youthful marriage in America. Focusing on young women and girls--the most common underage spouses--Syrett tracks the marital history of American minors from the colonial period to the present, chronicling the debates and moral panics related to these unions. Although the frequency of child marriages has declined since the early twentieth century, Syrett reveals that the practice was historically far more widespread in the United States than is commonly thought. It also continues to this day: current estimates indicate that 9 percent of living American women were married before turning eighteen. By examining the legal and social forces that have worked to curtail early marriage in America--including the efforts of women's rights activists, advocates for children's rights, and social workers--Syrett sheds new light on the American public's perceptions of young people marrying and the ways that individuals and communities challenged the complex legalities and cultural norms brought to the fore when underage citizens, by choice or coercion, became husband and wife.

Kastur Kapadia was betrothed to the mighty Mahatma Gandhi, father of modern India, when they were both just seven years old. The couple married when they were thirteen and Kastur had five children, the first of whom was born when she was sixteen. Though Gandhi's name has become synonymous with asceticism, this biography reveals that he enjoyed a sensuous, loving relationship with Kastur. Daughter of Midnight is the result of a lifetime of research by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma and Kastur. As well as recounting historical events behind the birth of a nation, Daughter of Midnight is also a love story, which ended with the terrible tragedy of Gandhi's assassination by a Hindu extremist in New Delhi in 1948. Though Gandhi's strength and resolution defeated all the resources of the British Empire he was not always confident, the author reveals. When the young Gandhi, as a barrister in Bombay, could not open his mouth for fear during his first ever court case, Kastur consoled him and soothed the humiliation he felt at being laughed at by his contemporaries. The woman who shared Gandhi's sorrows, his triumphs and his tragedies also knew the flaws and human frailities of the great leader. Together Mahatma and Kastur laid the foundations for the movement of nonviolence to which they devoted their lives. When Mahatma was imprisoned, Kastur was often jailed with him. No obstacle was too great for this extraordinary woman who gave up a life of wealth for one of utter poverty. When Kastur died the whole nation wept for the woman the people called simply 'Ba'...Mother.

Irrespective of the interdisciplinary, epistemological, pedagogical or etymological differences in the interpretation of leadership, technological situational happenstances (TSH) is cognitively and effectively use as a trajectory toward transformation of various leadership styles. Commonalities and differences exist in Bass' (1985, 1996, 1997) and Burns' (1978, 2002, 2003, 2006) leadership theories. Some scholars harbor crotchetiness to Bass' and Burns' theories (Keeley, 1995; Mckendall, 1993; Snyder, 1987; White & Wooten, 1986). Other scholars constructively remain neutral to Bass' and Burns' theories (Dmitry, 2007; Yukl, 2006). Without leaders deploying TSH in organizations, information will be distorted from reaching strategic and tactical planners. TSH is use to analyze, synthesize and triangulate the United States real estate historical trends from 1880s to present. Financial mortgage institutions' and unethical behaviors of granting mortgage loans to applicants resulted in foreclosures of homes in the United States. Financial institutions, such as Wachovia, Citigroup, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch Company assets backed collecterizatons are conjecturally losers in loans granted to applicants. Conversely, scholars in real estate posit that mortgage foreclosures on homeowners' cascades into economy recession, cyclical trough (Aluya, 2007, 2008; Austums, 2008;). TSH is a nonlinear disruptive technology that resets customer's expectation, creates competitive advantages and shifts the market in favor of the disruptor (Yitts, 2006). TSH is an innovative technology that removed the dearth from the anchored business model. In this book, UPS, Hewlett-Package, Nokia, AOL Time Warner, and Yahoo are used as case studies. In the 21st century, organizational leaders use TSH to reposition strategically new products. The author is the publisher of Housing in Sub-Saharan Cities in 2007.
