Emma. Beautiful, intelligent, radiantly talented, she lives in a star-studded world of wealth and privilege. But she is about to discover that fame is no protection at all when someone wants you dead. . . . All she has to do is close her eyes and she remembers the day Brian McAvoy swept into her life. A frightened toddler, she didn't know then that she was his illegitimate daughter or that he was pop music's rising new star. All she knew was that with Brian, his bandmates, and his new wife, she felt safe. And when her baby brother arrived, Emma thought she was the luckiest girl in the world . . . until the night a botched kidnapping attempt shattered all their lives . . . and destroyed Emma's happiness. Yet now, even though Emma is still haunted by flashes of memory from that fateful night, she has survived. She's carved out a thrilling career and even dared to fall rapturously in love. But the man who will become her husband isn't all that he seems. And Emma is about to awaken to the chilling knowledge that the darkest secret of all is the one buried in her mind—a secret that someone may kill to keep.

There seem to be two realms in our waking time: work and life. However, work is often juxtaposed against life, which is found in anything but work. Organizational work has become nothing more than the necessary evil, the means for a livelihood. Work has ubiquitously become the enemy of life. What culprit has dichotomized work and life? Public secrets! Empirically based, this book explores and testifies why the phenomenon of public secrets may have transformed our organizational life into a big lie to which we are all forced to subscribe-against private consciousness. Public secrets represent the communication phenomenon where public knowledge, though tacitly acknowledged and widely espoused, is never incorporated into organizational actions and daily routines. As a consequence, employees are not living their organizational life with their heads and hearts, but with our heels. "Employment with heels" is the biggest "un-economics" against time-it costs, wastes, and debilitates; it makes work the arch-enemy of life.

Informed by Critical Race Theory and based on a wide range of sources, including official sources, memoirs, and anthropological studies, this book examines multiple forms of racial discrimination in Jamaica and how they were talked about and experienced, from the end of the First World War until the demise of democratic socialism in the 1980. It also pays attention to practices devoid of racial content but which equally helped to sustain a society stratified by race and colour, such as voting qualifications. Case studies on, amongst others, the labour market, education, the family and legal system demonstrate the extent to which race and colour shaped social relations in the island in the decades preceding and following independence and argue that racial discrimination was a public secret - everybody knew it took place but few dared to openly discuss or criticise it. The book ends with an examination of race and colour in contemporary Jamaica to show that after independence race and colour have lost little of their power and offers some suggestions to overcome the silence on race to facilitate equality of opportunity for all.

Public Secrets, Public Spaces explores the possibility of symbolic public space in the context of Chinese cinema. Focusing especially on women, children, and the dispossessed, Stephanie H. Donald looks at the ways public space is constructed and occupied and how it interacts with Opublic secrets, O the unstated common-sense knowledges of everyday life, extraordinary to those who are not initiated into the routines of a particular cultural place and space. In traditional societies public secrets are organized through observable ritual; in modern societies they are embedded in the cultural discourse of the routine and the everyday.
