Kamala Harris: The Biography
University Press returns with another short and captivating portrait of one of history’s most compelling figures, Kamala Harris.
Kamala Harris was born in California to a Tamil mother from India and a black father from Jamaica. She grew up singing in the choir at a Baptist church and attending a Hindu temple with her mother. She is now happily married to a Jewish lawyer. As the District Attorney of San Francisco and as the Attorney General of California she gained a “tough on crime” reputation while opposing the death penalty. Much to the chagrin of her critics, Harris has been defying stereotypes since the very beginning.
Born in Oakland to a brainy, academic family, Harris became a lawyer, worked for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, was elected District Attorney of San Francisco, was elected Attorney General of California, won election to the United States Senate, ran for President of the United States, and, in 2020, was chosen by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to be his vice-presidential running mate.
This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who is changing the world in a way that no one else can.

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film Rocketman, to becoming a living legend.
Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of twenty-three he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.
His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway with Aida, The Lion King, and Billy Elliot the Musical. All the while Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade.
In Me, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble, and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you by a living legend.
