We have read the stories of those who have "crossed" lines of race and class and culture. But few have written of crossing—completely and entirely—the gender line. Crossing is the story of Deirdre McCloskey (formerly Donald), once a golden boy of conservative economics and a child of 1950s and 1960s privilege, and her dramatic and poignant journey to becoming a woman. McCloskey's account of her painstaking efforts to learn to "be a woman" unearth fundamental questions about gender and identity, and hatreds and anxieties, revealing surprising answers.

On the night of his graduation from the Betelgeuse Flight Academy, Reth Reilly finally managed to corner the flamboyant Xan Anders. But what he hoped would be a tender moment that might lead to something more was interrupted when Xan slipped away. Seven months later, Reth is surprised to find all the old feelings still remain when he runs into Xan again, this time when the flyboy is assigned to Reth's own ship, the USS Appomattox, for the Kressl ore run. Though he tries to avoid Xan, their brief encounter earlier still stands out in both their minds, and it takes a rendezvous on the simdeck to bring this star-crossed pair together again.

The importance of separable continuous trace $C^*$-algebras arises from the following facts: Firstly, their stable isomorphism classes are completely classifiable by topological data and, secondly, continuous-trace $C^*$-algebras form the building blocks of the more general type I $C^*$-algebras. This memoir presents an extensive study of strongly continuous actions of abelian locally compact groups on $C^*$-algebras with continuous trace. Under some natural assumptions on the underlying system $(A,G,\alpha )$, necessary and sufficient conditions are given for the crossed product $A{\times }_{\alpha }G$ to have continuous trace, and some relations between the topological data of $A$ and $A{\times }_{\alpha }G$ are obtained. The results are applied to investigate the structure of group $C^*$-algebras of some two-step nilpotent groups and solvable Lie groups. For readers' convenience, expositions of the Mackey-Green-Rieffel machine of induced representations and the theory of Morita equivalent $C^*$-dynamical systems are included. There is also an extensive elaboration of the representation theory of crossed products by actions of abelian groups on type I $C^*$-algebras, resulting in a new description of actions leading to type I crossed products. Features: The most recent results on the theory of crossed products with continuous trace. Applications to the representation theory of locally compact groups and structure of group $C^*$-algebras. An exposition on the modern theory of induced representations. New results on type I crossed products.

Thomas Jefferson and William Wilberforce were born at a time of great, dangerous challenges where unprecedented revolutions in thought, governments, worldview, and culture swept in. Their lives, from their beginning tragedies down to their calling and early commitments to end slavery, make their stories even more amazing. Powerfully formed as leaders by exceptional mentors and lifelong supporters, they were sustained in their difficult journeys through several critical forks. While each experienced the early failure to abolish slavery, eventually one man backed away from his responsibility while the other became a globally recognized leader of mercy to the oppressed. Why the so-called tyrant monarchy, England, was led to dissolve slavery peacefully and why the first democracy formed in liberty wasted six hundred thousand lives for the same end remains a conundrum to this day. Even more puzzling is why, despite fierce opposition, Wilberforce persisted to lead this victory while Jefferson failed to do so. This even deeper question reveals much about the power of purpose, of beliefs, worldviews, and what constitutes true success. In the end, their competing stories produce valuable lessons apt for our equally perplexing times. Whether an aspiring, young leader, one who seeks to shape the next generation, or a student of history, the reader will find here answers to important questions we all share.
