Vertical: The Diocese from Satellites to Bunkers by imusti
Product Description
A revolutionary reimagining of the cities we live in, the air above us, and what goes on in the earth beneath our feet

Today we live in a world that can no longer be read as a two-dimensional map, but must now be understood as a series of vertical strata that reach from the satellites that encircle our planet to the tunnels deep within the ground. In Vertical, Stephen Graham rewrites the city at every level: how the geography of inequality, politics, and identity is determined in terms of above and below.

Starting at the edge of earth’s atmosphere and, in a series of riveting studies, descending through each layer, Graham explores the world of drones, the city from the viewpoint of an aerial bomber, the design of sidewalks and the hidden depths of underground bunkers. He asks: why was Dubai built to be seen from Google Earth? How do the super-rich in São Paulo live in their penthouses far above the street? Why do London billionaires build vast subterranean basements? And how do the technology of elevators and subversive urban explorers shape life on the surface and subsurface of the earth?

Vertical will make you look at the world around you anew: this is a revolution in understanding your place in the world.
Product Description

An Ivy League degree propelled Stephen Graham into the world of corporate law. There he expected to be judged on his accomplishments—and he was. But unlike his white colleagues, Graham had to fight against a constant undercurrent of racial bias.

Invisible Ink recounts Graham’s experiences with bias and racism in corporate America. Unlike racially motivated violence or overt bigotry, racial bias in the business world is usually subtle, often going undetected unless coaxed to the surface. Such racism is insidious and deeply ingrained in corporate America. Succeeding means battling against prejudice on a daily basis—all while white colleagues maintain racial bias doesn’t exist or is of no consequence, dismissing attempts to confront prejudice as “playing the race card.”

Such is the environment Graham has navigated throughout his corporate career. His personal stories reveal the ever-changing contours of a racial bias that denigrates and demeans through continuous, low-grade attacks, grinding down its victims over time.

That Graham succeeded in such an environment is a testament to his talent and dedication. That such an environment should exist at all is indefensible.

“Masked Ink: Navigating Racism in Corporate America”. Author Stephen M. Graham sums up bias in corporate America: “If you are white, your outstanding show is applauded. Nationwide — Author Stephen M. Graham is pleased to announce today the publication of his inaugural literary offering, INVISIBLE INK: Navigating Racism in Corporate America. Described as a “must announce” by one reviewer who wrote that Graham “brilliantly captured the feelings of fear, dismay, anger, self-doubt, shock, numbness and not under any condition-ending mind trickery, we [African Americans in the corporate world] go through just... ” Invisible Ink recounts Graham’s experiences with colour and racism in corporate America against a background of prejudice in the larger society. Unlike racially motivated violence or clear bigotry, racism in the business world is usually subtle, often going undetected unless coaxed to the integument. Such racism is insidious and deeply ingrained in corporate America. Succeeding in this world means battling prejudice on a daily heart, while many white colleagues maintain racial bias doesn’t exist or is of little consequence. Graham’s personal stories carouse the ever-changing contours of a racial bias that denigrates and demeans through continuous, low-grade attacks, grinding down its victims over interval. The author’s hard-hitting commentary regarding a world lacking in true diversity sites an example: “Of the 50,000 partners in crucial corporate law firms, only 1. 8% are African American, and fewer than that are equity partners. ” This is played out in an environment where African Americans are continuously subjected to a debilitating ambiance of bias that too many, on both sides of the divide, pretend does not exist. Countering this pretending was one of the main reasons why Graham wrote his soft-cover. Invisible Ink stresses that racism in polite society hasn’t disappeared. There are times when the racist blows his cover, inadvertently weak spot to use the code, and African Americans in the corporate world are allowed to see the danger. lulled into thinking that since racism is less noisy, it must be less prevalent. Contributing to this false sense are the corporate leaders skilled at saying the right thing while contemporary about business as usual. Although most leaders in corporate America are quick to condemn blatant bias in the larger brotherhood, they tend to turn a blind eye to the subtle strains of bias pulsing within their own organizations, doing little to counter their effects.
