In this first of three books inspired by the life of Josephine Bonaparte, Sandra Gulland has created a novel of immense and magical proportions. We meet Josephine in the exotic and lush Martinico, where an old island woman predicts that one day she will be queen. The journey from the remote village of her birth to the height of European elegance is long, but Josephine’s fortune proves to be true. By way of fictionalized diary entries, we traverse her early years as she marries her one true love, bears his children, and is left betrayed, widowed, and penniless. It is Josephine’s extraordinary charm, cunning, and will to survive that catapults her to the heart of society, where she meets Napoleon, whose destiny will prove to be irrevocably intertwined with hers.Since completing high school history, few of us have managed to keep straight the details of the French Revolution. Beyond suggestions of eating cake and the effectiveness of the guillotine, this sordid time period has remained–for many–somewhat obscure. Now, through the novel The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B., not only do we learn of the many differences between Robespierre and Rousseau, but we gain insight into the marriage of one of history’s greatest political couples: Napoleon and Josephine.
Standing beside the charismatic Napoleon, Josephine’s own importance and fascinating history have often been overshadowed. In a fictionalized account of Josephine’s diaries and her correspondence, author Sandra Gulland has shed light on Josephine’s pre-Napoleon life. This, the first of three books about Josephine, covers her childhood in Martinique, her first marriage, the birth of her children, her life during the revolution, and her marriage to Napoleon.
A poor Creole outsider as well as a rising socialite, Josephine experienced both the horrors of imprisonment and the privilege of connections. Utilizing these different perspectives, Gulland takes special care to bring forth the reality of life in late 18th-century France. Though she can only theorize on Josephine’s emotions and desires, Gulland’s talented writing and the restrained use of footnotes keep the reader properly informed on pertinent details, whether they be obscure political events or voodoo beliefs. While professional historians may bristle at the artistic license Gulland employs, most readers will find her novel a satisfying and engaging introduction to this dramatic period. –Nancy R.E. O’Brien

About:Phases of the Official Diet Drops Plan: The dieting plan is divided into 3 phases so as to allow one to measure his or her level of success throughout the entire process.
Here is a brief look at what each of the phases will be like:
1st Phase: The initiation phase of the Diet Drops Plan is concentrated around teaching you how to make proper use of the Diet Drops. The phase really lasts only two days, and you are actually encouraged to eat to your heart’s content while drinking up to one gallon of water per day (no less than half a gallon though).
2nd Phase: Once the first phase has been completed things will be set in full motion. As the phase continues the amount of calories you eat will gradually decrease, allowing you to shed extra fat and continue on your way to a healthy body.
3rd Phase: This is the phase where the plan sets itself apart from the myriad of fad diets saturating the market these days. After 45 days (or when you reach your target weight), you will start to follow the maintenance cycle. In other words, once you have dropped the weight, you will be given the means to keep it that way and prevent yourself from going back to square one. While you are in maintenance mode there is no longer a calorie limit for you to abide by; you will have to drink lots of water and carefully watch what you eat.

Dispatches charts Latin America’s aspirations and challenges.
From the laboratory of neoliberalism—popularly known as “globalization” —Latin America has transformed itself into a launching pad for resistance. As globalization began to spread its devastation, robust and thoughtful opposition emerged in response—in the recovered factory movement of Argentina, in the presidential elections of indigenous leaders and radicals like Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales, against the privatization of water in Bolivia. Across Latin America, people are building social movements to take back control of their countries and their lives.
Dispatches from Latin America reports on countries from Mexico to Argentina to map the contemporary political and social territory. Drawn from the pages of the well-respected NACLA Report, this collection offers a riveting series of accounts that bring new insight into the region’s struggles and victories.
With shrewd analysis rendered in accessible language, Dispatches lays plain the complex and vitally important conditions unfolding in 21st-century Latin America.
Praise for Dispatches
“After suffering half a century of vicious military dictatorship and state terror, and the disaster of rigid adherence to the neoliberal doctrines of the “Washington consensus,” Latin America has undergone remarkable changes that offer real hope for a better future. Among the most promising signs are the dynamic mass movements that have engaged the traditionally marginalized and repressed majorities in political and social life as nowhere else, with popular assemblies, worker-run factories, participatory budgets, grassroots political activism, and much more.
The informed and penetrating in-depth studies that appear in Dispatches explore the complex variety of popular initiatives that are taking shape, their achievements and prospects, in what has become perhaps the most exciting region of the world.”
NOAM CHOMSKY —author of Failed States and Turning the Tide: US Intervention in Central America
Praise for NACLA “NACLA’s Report is an indispensable resource for us as readers, citizens, writers and editors.”
VICTOR NAVASKY — publisher of The Nation
“It’s a magazine I always grab in a crisis, since it has often been ahead in analyzing and interpreting political trends in Latin America and in Washington.”
SEYMOUR HERSH — Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist
“NACLA is an indispensable resource for those of us living in the borderlands. NACLA has always made sense of the senseless, tried to right wrongs, cast light on the shadows. It is a priceless bridge across the borders that continue to separate the peoples of the Americas.”
RUBÉN MARTÍNEZ — Salvadoran-Mexican journalist and author of Crossing Over
“I would be thrown for a serious loss if I had to make sense of the news from Latin America without having NACLA Report for guidance.”
JOHN WOMACK, JR. — professor of Latin American history and economics, Harvard University

FRONTLINE ® Plus for Dogs provides fast, effective and convenient treatment and control of fleas and ticks for dogs and puppies. FRONTLINE® Plus stops and prevents infestations and kills adult fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae. This effective flea treatment prevents all flea stages (eggs, larvae, pupae) from developing and kills fleas that may cause flea allergy dermatitis. Frontline flea and tick treatment also kills all stages of deer ticks (which may carry Lyme disease), brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, and lone star ticks, while preventing and controlling re-infestations. Ticks are more than a nuisance- in some cases, they may transmit serious diseases to your dog or even to you. To kill ticks that may carry and transmit these serious diseases, count on the control of FRONTLINE ® Plus. FRONTLINE ® Plus For Dogs contains fipronil and the insect growth regulator (IGR) (S)-methoprene. Insect growth regulators interrupt or inhibit the life cycle of a pest. Flea eggs and flea larvae that are exposed to (IGR) (S)-methoprene will never develop into the adult jumping, biting and (most important) reproducing fleas. FRONTLINE ® flea and tick treatment effectively targets all stages of fleas and ticks. Fipronil collects in the oils of the skin and hair follicles, and continues to be released from hair follicles onto the skin and coat, resulting in effective tick and flea control for long-lasting activity against fleas and ticks. FRONTLINE ® Plus for Dogs is waterproof, since the active ingredient in FRONTLINE ® products is stored in the oil glands within the skin, from which it is continuously released onto dogs’ fur, FRONTLINE ® flea and tick treatment remains truly waterproof for 30 days or longer. FRONTLINE ® is so gentle it is approved for use on puppies 8 weeks or older. It is also approved for breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs. FRONTLINE ® does not expire if it remains unopened and is stored properly according to the package instructions.
