5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for academics and activists alike, May 28, 2012
"The MoveOn Effect" is a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at the changing landscape of American political advocacy. A promising young political scientist with years of on-the-ground organizing experience, Karpf is able to speak clearly and engagingly to academics and activists alike. He deftly explores the shift from legacy organizations to a new, leaner generation of political organizations, with changing approaches to membership, fundraising and political engagement. This is a must-read for anyone working in or studying political organizing, and a fascinating look at the key organizational players in a contentious election year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lush and haunting debut, July 12, 2011
This review is from: The Girl in the Garden (Hardcover)
Kamala Nair's debut novel is a lush, haunting tale of family secrets unearthed during a formative summer in Kerala. The story of Rakhee Singh draws you in from the first page, but it is Nair's lyrical, stunning prose that makes this novel a standout. Even as the plot twists and thickens, Nair maintains her artist's eye and poet's voice for details that make her characters and images jump off the page. I literally could not put the book down. I look forward to reading more from this talented young author!
