Women Leaders in Kenya: A Legacy for the Future
In 1997, Ralph Upson Stone ’80 had completed research on his doctoral dissertation, “Women Leaders in Kenya,” when he was brutally murdered by a still unknown assailant in his home in Washington, DC, at the age of 38. Determined that his years of labor would not be lost, his mother, Anne Upson Stone, put the finishing touches on Ralph’s research and concluded the writing of his dissertation. In 1998, at age 68, she successfully defended it before his professors at George Washington University. That summer, Ralph’s Ed.D. degree was posthumously awarded, with his mother and father, Frederick L. Stone, Jr. ’51, on hand to receive it. In June, 2001, the Centre for Development and Population Activities, of which Ralph was the highly respected and admired director of training, published the fruits of his and his mother’s labors as a book: Women Leaders in Kenya: A Legacy for the Future. Proceeds from its sale will go to the Ralph U. Stone Memorial Fund, which provides scholarships for leaders around the world to attend seminars at CEDPA, a nonprofit international development organization headquartered in Washington and aimed at empowering women at all levels of society.

Marbury vs. Madison: The Origins and Legacy of Judicial Review
We take for granted today the tremendous power of the Supreme Court to interpret our laws and overrule any found in conflict with the Constitution. Yet our nation was a quarter-century old before that power of "judicial review" was fully articulated by the Court itself in Marbury v. Madison (1803). William Nelson's concise study of that landmark case provides an insightful and readable guide for students and general readers alike. More ...
Dancing on the Stones: Selected Essays
If you've read any of John Nichols's novels or books of nonfiction, you've met a lively, funny, and very impassioned man. This new collection of essays gives you the opportunity to know him even more intimately. Taoseño, fisherman, father, author, spokesman for all underdogs, Nichols has gathered writings that span more than thirty years and range from idyllic reflections on nature to unmerciful satires on impending Armageddon. We see the author as a young man on the trip to Central America that gave him a social conscience that wouldn't quit; as a hunter, hiker, and naturalist on rivers and in mountains increasingly threatened by development; and as a novelist watching in embarrassed disbelief as his book The Milagro Beanfield War is made into a movie that succeeds in spite of Hollywood's best efforts to garble the outcome. The vitality that made Nichols a standout prep-school mischief maker and college hockey player lends irresistible high spirits even to essays about departed friends and mortal illness--subjects that are treated with compassion, bawdy irreverence, thoughtful philosophizing, and the author's intense love of life.
