Ramshackle GlamHachette UK. 2014
Ramshackle Glam creator Jordan Reid was a little nervous about becoming a mother. “In my experience,” she writes, “you know what happens when you hold babies? They cry. And it immediately becomes clear to all present that you have terrible parental instincts and should never be allowed to come into contact with children—ever.” But in October 2011 Reid became a mother herself, and over the first year of her son's life the writer and media personality not only figured out a thing or two about parenting, but also learned how to navigate an entirely new lifestyle while still maintaining a sense of self. Part memoir, part commiseration, and part how-to guide on fashion, beauty, home décor and entertaining for the new mom, Ramshackle Glam offers something fresh for the “mommy” bookshelf: concrete advice on how to care for yourself in the post-partum days, weeks, and months. A deeply personal exploration of the realities of modern-day parenthood (Reid covers topics ranging from post-partum depression and marital struggles to pets who immediately transform from your beloved best friends into Those Things That Wake Up Your Child), Ramshackle Glamis also filled with straightforward, fun, and easy lifestyle tips, including how to dress for your post-partum shape, tricks for rearranging your home so it works with an infant as well as your tastes, and strategies for getting your makeup done in five minutes flat with one hand while keeping that bouncy chair going with the other. Reid's spot-on advice combined with her trademark intimacy, wit, and (often aching) honesty make Ramshackle Glam a must-read for any woman in search of a candid account of how to handle enormous life changes with humor, grace . . . and a little bit of glam.

Challenge and TransformationBerghahn Books. 2018
Combining the perspectives of 18 international scholars from Europe and the United States with a critical discussion of the role of culture in international relations, this volume introduces recent trends in the study of Culture and International History. It systematically explores the cultural dimension of international history, mapping existing approaches and conceptual lenses for the study of cultural factors and thus hopes to sharpen the awareness for the cultural approach to international history among both American and non-American scholars. The first part provides a methodological introduction, explores the cultural underpinnings of foreign policy, and the role of culture in international affairs by reviewing the historiography and examining the meaning of the word culture in the context of foreign relations. In the second part, contributors analyze culture as a tool of foreign policy. They demonstrate how culture was instrumentalized for diplomatic goals and purposes in different historical periods and world regions. The essays in the third part expand the state-centered view and retrace informal cultural relations among nations and peoples. This exploration of non-state cultural interaction focuses on the role of science, art, religion, and tourism. The fourth part collects the findings and arguments of part one, two, and three to define a roadmap for further scholarly inquiry. A group of" commentators" survey the preceding essays, place them into a larger research context, and address the question "Where do we go from here?" The last and fifth part presents a selection of primary sources along with individual comments highlighting a new genre of resources scholars interested in culture and international relations can consult.
