The stresses and distractions of life in recent years have made it challenging to connect with one another. This has become even more difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to rising levels of loneliness around the world. In their forthcoming book, Missing Each Other: How to Cultivate Meaningful Connections, CAR collaborator Dr. Edward Brodkin and colleague Ashley Pallathra, M.A. write about the importance of re-connecting, and they provide what Publishers Weekly calls “a highly informed guide on how to be fully present and open with others.”

Based on their research, the authors identify the essence of human connection in a process they call “attunement”. To explain attunement, they take us on a wide-ranging and surprising journey through social neuroscience and autism research, music, improv comedy, pro basketball, and tai chi. They also provide exercises for the reader to develop their own attunement skills.

Angela Duckworth – MacArthur Fellow (“Genius Grant”) awardee and author of Grit -- describes Missing Each Other as “an absolutely compelling perspective on the science and practice of authentic human connection. If you want to know how and why to get in sync with other people, this book is for you.” For more information or to preorder visit: https://www.amazon.com/Missing-Each-Other-Meaningful-Connections/dp/1541774019

Reimagining US Diplomacy: A book discussion with Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger, Tom Perriello, and Elizabeth Shackelford

In 2017, Elizabeth Shackelford wrote a pointed resignation letter to her then boss, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. She had watched as the State Department was gutted, and now she urged him to stem the bleeding by showing leadership and commitment to his diplomats and the country. If he couldn’t do that, she said, “I humbly recommend that you follow me out the door.”

In The Dissent Channel, former diplomat Elizabeth Shackelford shows that this is not a new problem. Shackelford chronicles the challenges of addressing crisis overseas with an under-resourced State Department at the mercy of a foreign policy driven by inertia and short-term political needs.

Join Shackelford as she discusses longstanding problems in US foreign policy and how, particularly in light of the COVID pandemic, we build a better and more meaningful approach to and support for US diplomacy. Shackelford will be joined by Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (VA-07) and Tom Perriello, former Congressman, QDDR special representative, and now Executive Director of Open-Society-US. The conversation will be moderated by Sarah Margon, director of foreign policy at Open Society.

Stealing Home: New Book Looks at Families Evicted when Dodger Stadium Was Built

“Nusbaum’s reporting and research are impressively deep, and his empathic writing brings his subjects to life. Stealing Home is a baseball book, but it’s only glancingly about baseball. Really, it’s about how you can’t fight city hall, how one person’s American Dream often tramples another’s and how myth-making can be used to gloss over injustice and trauma.”
