John Carlos is an African American former track and field athlete and professional football player, and a founding member of the Olympic Project for Human Rights. He won the bronze-medal in the 200 meters race at the 1968 Summer Olympics, where his Black Power salute on the podium with Tommie Smith caused much political controversy. After his track career, he enjoyed brief stints in the National Football League and Canadian Football League but retired due to injury. One of America’s most provocative public intellectuals, Cornel West has been a champion for racial justice since childhood. His writing, speaking, and teaching weave together the traditions of the black Baptist Church, progressive politics, and jazz. Seen around the world, John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s Black Power salute on the 1968 Olympic podium sparked controversy and career fallout. Yet their show of defiance remains one of the most iconic images of Olympic history and the Black Power movement. Here is the remarkable story of one of the men behind the salute, lifelong activist, John Carlos. $29.95 Hb, ISBN 9781608461332, NZRP$39.95 Publish July 2011, 220 pages Haymarket Books Memoir Quantity

Inside Al-Qaeda and the Taliban
9/11 and Beyond
Unmasking the Mystery of How Life Transforms
Syed Saleem Shahzad is an investigative reporter with unparalleled access to leaders and fighters in Islamic movements. He is the only journalist to have interviewed Ilyas Kashmiri, one of the most dangerous Al-Qaeda commanders. He has been both a hostage and a guest of the Taliban, giving him insight into its workings that no other journalist can match.
A scientist and consultant physician, Frank Ryan is the author of the critically acclaimed Virolution, Darwin’s Blind Spot, and Virus X, among others. He is currently an Honorary Research Fellow in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Sheffield and lectures frequently on evolution and the role of viruses in life. He lives in Sheffield.
A myriad of authors, journalists, academics and analysts have attempted to analyse what drives Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders and fighters. Syed Saleem Shahzad is the only one to have gone to their strongholds and asked them. Shahzad, a Pakistani investigative reporter, has a level of access to Al-Qaeda and the Taliban that Western journalists can only dream of. He has interviewed many top-level strategists and fighters in both movements on multiple occasions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Jordan. Here he uses first-hand accounts and his own local knowledge to build up a convincing picture of the aims and motivation of the leaders and fighters in radical Islamic movements. This is a version of the ‘war on terror’ that has never been told. It will fascinate anyone concerned with the strategy and tactics of the most controversial Islamic movements. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781420256710, NZRP$49.95 Publish July 2011, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Current Affairs
In this enchanting work of scientific exploration, acclaimed science author Frank Ryan explains how metamorphosis - the intricate trick of nature by which caterpillars transform into butterflies - reveals secrets that are shaking the scientific world. A pioneering biologist in his own right, Ryan brings to life the work of pioneering naturalists who have traced metamorphosis in myriad species, from amphibians to marine creatures, even human puberty, to rewrite some of our longest-held beliefs about evolution. He shares untold and controversial stories of discovery, including the maverick scientist who created the first true artifical life form. Lyrical and provocative, Metamorphosis offers a new understanding of some of the most ancient miracles of the nature. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851688463, NZRP$29.95 Publish July 2011, 320 pages Oneworld Publications Popular Science Quantity

The battle of Budapest (December 1944 to February 1945) was one of the longest and bloodiest city sieges of the Second World War. From the appearance of the first Soviet tanks on the outskirts of the capital to the capture of Buda Castle, 102 days elapsed. In terms of human trauma, it comes second only to Stalingrad, comparisons to which were even being made by soldiers, both German and Soviet, fighting at the time.

Train crashes cause, on average, a handful of deaths each year in the UK. Technologies exist that would save the lives of some of those who die. Yet these technical innovations would cost hundreds of millions of pounds. This is the first book to subject important and controversial areas of public policy to philosophical scrutiny.

Reframing Post-revolutionary Iranian Cinema
Roz Kaveney is a journalist, reviewer and cultural commentator, and Jennifer Stoy, University of Santa Barbara.

The New Iranian Cinema has had a fascinating success story in world cinema and critics have hailed Iranian films as alternatives to the homogenising global influence of mainstream Hollywood cinema. Drawing on seminal ideas of ‘art cinema’, Christopher Gow examines how the success of this cinema and the films of Abbas Kiarostami, its foremost proponent, can be accounted for by the extent to which they fit into a preestablished notion of art cinema. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848855274, NZRP$49.95 Publish July 2011, 240 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Contemporary Film Studies Quantity

The misadventures and soap opera-esque entanglements of the lives of plastic surgeons Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) and Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) won Golden Globes and boycotts from the American Family Association. Yet, as this first full critical examination of Nip/Tuck shows, ironically the show is an examination of the American family and its many definitions, anxieties and complications of gender and sexuality, and the class issues and illusions surrounding the American dream. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781845118624, NZRP$39.95 Publish July 2011, 256 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Television Studies
The Italian Love Affair with Sport
Jose Pierre was a playwright, novelist and art historian.
Simon Martin, American University, Italy.
In January 1928, the surrealists initiated their remarkable “researches into sexuality” with a series of round-table conversations. The transcripts, in all their bizarre and fascinating detail, are presented here. While there is plenty of humor - not all of it intentional - the speakers were trying scrupulously to record every aspect of sexual love, cataloguing preferences and positions, quality and quantity. This book is a unique historical record of sexual practice and ethics; a fundamental text for understanding the surrealist movement and, for all its idiosyncrasies, a document that still retains an extraordinary vitality today. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844677122, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 224 pages Verso Quantity Art History

This groundbreaking book offers timely ideas about how emotion can be systematically incorporated into theories about financial markets and how to use understanding to create policy to make them safer. The argument, based on research interviewers with money managers, is that the recent financial crisis resulted from failures to understand and organise markets so that they control the human behaviour they unleash. Supporting such ideas with interdisciplinary evidence and insights he sets out a framework for a new economic theory of financial markets. $59.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230299856, NZRP$69.95 Publish July 2011, 288 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Finance

This book sets out the history of the Chinese in Britain, from the angle of changes in their economic and social standing. By analysing their migration patterns, associational structures, and paths of enterprise development, the book seeks to understand processes of identity formation among members of this community - and, by extension, of ethnic minorities in general.

Unlike anywhere else in the world, in nineteenthand twentieth-century Central Europe national movements and politicians made language into the paramount instrument of politics, and of statehood and nationhood legitimization. In this order of things, each nation wishing to be recognized in the international arena must possess its own unique national language. During the twentieth century, this specifically Central European ‘deification’ of language justified the destruction of entire states deemed as ‘non-national’, vast unprecedented border changes, and instances of ethnic cleansing involving tens of millions. $53.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230294738, NZRP$67.00 Publish July 2011, 1168 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity History & Philosophy
Enlightenment, Governance, and Reform in Spain and its Empire, 1759 - 1808
Time and Philosophy
Gabriel B. Paquette, Johns Hopkins University, USA.
Time and Philosophy presents a detailed survey of continental thought through an historical account of its key texts. The common theme is how philosophical thought should respond to time. Looking at the development of continental philosophy in both Europe and America, the philosophers discussed range from Marx, , Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, and Derrida, to the most influential thinkers of today, Agamben, Badiou, Butler and Ranciere. The concern is to elucidate the primary texts for readers coming to them for the first time. But, beyond this, it aims to reveal the philosophical rigour which underpins and connects the history of continental thought. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781844652761, NZRP$53.00 Publish July 2011, 352 pages Acumen Publishing Quantity History & Philosophy

Noted political psychologist Stanley Renshon follows Obama’s presidency through the first year.

These questions cannot be answered without recourse to psychological analysis. And they cannot be answered without psychological knowledge of presidential leadership and the presidency itself. Renshon explains that Obama’s ambition has an undercurrent in its developmental history of the fear of failure that has enormous consequences for his choices as president of an America that remains politically divided. $38.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415873956, NZRP$48.00 Publish July 2011, 400 pages Routledge Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Back in 1997, New Labour came to power amid much talk of regenerating the inner cities left to rot under successive Conservative governments. Over the next decade, British cities became the laboratories of the new enterprise economy: glowing monuments to finance, property speculation, and the service industry - until the crash.

This is an authoritative discussion of major recent developments in Latin American politics, by one of the continent’s leading political thinkers. Sader seeks to explain the resurgence of radicalism in the region by placing it in historical context, and exploring the theoretical resources on which it has drawn. The book is unusual in combining succinct judgements with broad chronological and geographical sweep-covering a period running from the early twentieth century to the present, and embracing the lands from Chile to Mexico. $34.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844676927, NZRP$41.00 Publish July 2011, 224 pages Verso Current Affairs & Politics

A New Voice for Israel
Rewriting the Rules of Advocacy
The New Student Rebellions
Jeremy Ben-Ami is the founder and president of J Street, an advocacy group and political action committee that is both pro-Israel and pro-peace.
Clare Solomon, President of the University of London Union, and Tania Palmieri is an edtior at Verso.
Moderate Jeremy Ben-Ami punctures many of the myths that have long guided our understanding of the politics of the American Jewish community and have been fundamental to how pro-Israel advocates have pursued their work. Ben-Ami, whose grandparents were first-generation Zionists and founders of Tel Aviv, tells the story of his own evolution toward a more moderate viewpoint. He sketches a new direction for both American policy and the conduct of the debate over Israel in the American Jewish community. $39.00 Hb, ISBN 9780230112742, NZRP$47.00 Publish July 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Rafael Kandiyoti, Imperial College London.
9 781848 858398
Oil and natural gas are now acknowledged to be the driving forces of international politics. What has not yet been fully explored is how their delivery affects the geopolitics of the world. Pipelines, once built, create new diplomatic realities - some states are newly connected, others isolated. Some states benefit economically, others lose out. In this groundbreaking book Rafael Kandiyoti takes us along the pipeline networks, from Kandahar to the Caspian basin, from Ceyhan to China, and shows us how they form the foundation of the new geopolitical order. In the process he demonstrates that the issue of energy supply revolves not only on hydrocarbon resources but also on their delivery. $28.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848858398, NZRP$34.00 Publish July 2011, 320 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Current Affairs & Politics
Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou, Harvard University. This book controversially argues that Al Qaeda has clear aims, and that the only way to defeat it is to engage with its arguments in a serious way. Starting with Al Qaeda’s creation almost twenty years ago, Mohamedou explains that there is a clear strategy to Al Qaeda’s actions. He shows that the ‘war on terror’ is failing, only serving to recruit more terrorists to Al Qaeda’s cause. He also puts forward a case for how best the international community can respond. $34.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745331676, NZRP$41.00 Publish July 2011, 192 pages Pluto Current Affairs & Politics

The autumn and winter of 2010 saw an unprecedented wave of student protests across the UK, in response to the coalition government’s savage cuts in state funding for higher education. Rather than a series of isolated incidents, they formed a movement that replicated a phenomenon that has gone global. Tracing these worldwide protests, this new book explores how the protests spread and how they were organized, through the unprecedented use of social networking media such as facebook and twitter. It looks, too, at events on the ground, the demonstrations, and the police tactics. $23.00 Pb, ISBN 9781844677405, NZRP$28.00 Publish July 2011, 256 pages Verso Quantity Current Affairs & Politics
From the nation’s beginnings, the law was to be the great equalizer in American life, the guarantor of a common set of rules for all. But over the past four decades, the principle of equality before the law has been effectively abolished. Instead, a twotiered system of justice ensures that the country’s political and financial class is virtually immune from prosecution, while the politically powerless are imprisoned with greater ease and in greater numbers than in any other country in the world. Glenn Greenwald lays bare the mechanisms that have come to shield the elite from accountability. $39.00 Pb, ISBN 9780805092059, NZRP$47.00 Publish July 2011, 288 pages Henry Holt and Company Quantity Current Affairs & Politics
Wealth and Power in Postcommunist Europe

John A. Gould, Colorado College.
Wolfgang Danspeckgruber, Princeton University.
In this remarkable story of postcommunist politics gone wrong, John Gould explores privatization’s role in the scramble for wealth and power in postcommunist Europe. Gould engages the core debates on privatization. Does democratic development facilitate effective capitalist reform, or vice versa? How do political legacies shape privatization choices? Is simultaneous transition feasible? Offering both new empirical information and nuanced political analysis, his in-depth study reveals a surprising relationship between political liberalization and economic reform. $34.00 Pb, ISBN 9781588267832, NZRP$41.00 Publish July 2011, 247 pages Lynne Rienner Current Affairs & Politics

Mary Anning was only twelve years old when, in 1811, she discovered the first dinosaur skeleton while fossil hunting on the cliffs of Lyme Regis, England. Until Mary's incredible discovery, it was widely believed that animals did not become extinct. The child of a poor family, Mary became a fossil hunter, and her peculiar finds helped lay the groundwork for Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Thomas Edward Lawrence, born in 1888, was Advisor on Arab Affairs in the Colonial Office.
Clare Mulley joined Save the Children as a corporate fundraiser in the 1990s.
The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918, when the disparate tribes of Arabia rose up as one great force to defeat an empire, was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the Middle East. It sounded the death knell for the Ottoman Empire and paved the way for a new colonial power in the region - the British. It was T.E. Lawrence, a young army officer with unmatched knowledge of the region and the Arab people, who - alongside the charismatic Faisal I - led the Revolt. His magnificent first-hand account of the period is now a classic of 20th century literature. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848856653, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 352 pages Quantity Tauris Parke Paperbacks Memoir

Fiction The Thirteenth Apostle Michel Benoît is a religious scholar and novelist.
Alma Books was shortlisted for the IPG Independent Publisher of the Year
When his friend, Father Andréi, is mysteriously killed on a train on his way back from Rome, Father Nil decides to conduct his own investigation. The dead priest possessed proof of the existence of a thirteenth apostle and an epistle stating that Jesus was nothing more than an inspired prophet, not the Son of God - two things that would spell great danger for the Church. While he pushes ahead with his investigation, the Pope’s advisors, rival factions and secret societies are trying, by any means, to lay their hands on the priest’s findings. From the Mossad to Fatah, everyone seems to have a very good reason to keep the thirteenth apostle a secret. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781846881534, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 384 pages Alma Fiction

International Bestseller Over 65,000 copies sold A captivating and thoroughly researched religious thriller comparable to Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose Written by religious scholar and unordained monk Michel Benoît
“Benoît is a former Benedictine monk who studied for a doctorate in theology in Rome and went on to teach the New Testament in a monastery. Yet his tale of a cultish, underground society at the heart of the Catholic Church, prepared to kill to protect an ancient secret, which if revealed might sink the whole Christian enterprise, will have a very familiar ring to anyone who has read Brown's thriller.” The Independent, 2007
Where does fact end and fiction begin in The Thirteenth Apostle? "History is not an exact science, it only manages to achieve increasingly refined hypotheses. As time goes on, some of these findings settle down and are sometimes termed 'definitive'. But in the field of history nothing is established for ever: the discovery of new sources, or simply a new perspective on events, can call into question an almost official historical truth which had been longaccepted by everyone. The novelist follows his investigation up to the point that history has reached. He then imagines what history would have become, if… But he must do so in strict coherence with preceding events. If what he writes is not real, it must be realistic. Historical fiction does not create an entirely new world, as science fiction does: it imagines what the world could have become, if a minuscule grain of sand had oriented history – as we know it – along a different path. It must be a plausible hypothesis, coherent with what we know from other sources. That is how I constructed The Thirteenth Apostle. We know for a fact that this man existed. Did he write an epistle to tell his truth about Jesus the Nazorean? There is no trace of such a letter, but he could have written one, which could have been transmitted to us, as it was the case for many other works left behind by the founders of Christianity. What would have been the content of such an epistle? Obviously we can’t tell, but a good knowledge of first-century history allows us to imagine it." - Michel Benoît
A Recent Release from Alma Books Anna Stothard writes about the influences and inspiration behind The Pink Hotel: "When I was maybe seventeen I found a pile of love letters in my mother’s bedroom and realized that before I was born she’d had an affair with one of my favorite writers of all time, Douglas Adam. This was a writer I’d idolized all my life and suddenly, there in a purple box file on the top of my mother’s wardrobe, were scores of handwritten notes from this man to my mother. The notes ranged from essay-length love letters to one-line queries about whether she could pick up milk on the way home. I wasn’t excited at this discovery, or even particularly impressed. Instead I sat cross-legged on the floor next to her bed and had a terrible allengulfing sense of being without identity.

Clearly the only reason I’d been passionate about this writer was because my mother had them on her bookshelves, and because she’d introduced his books to me at an early age. Then the maternal catalyst had been forgotten in adolescence and I’d imagined him to be my personal obsession. But it turns out he’d never been mine. He most definitely belonged to her. I’d merely echoed her love like I’d inherited the way she screwed up her forehead when she concentrated, and the way she applied her lipstick."

Dr Anne Aly is Senior Lecturer in terrorism and counterterrorism at Edith Cowan University. Anne is an engaging public speaker and has an upcoming event at Curtin University at which Kevin Rudd will be launching her new book Terrorism and Global Security.
Beth Lord, author of Kant and Spinozism ($127.00 Hb, ISBN 9780230552975, NZRP$160) will be visiting Sydney in May! Beth is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Dundee, UK and researches how ontology, epistemology and metaphysics intersect with philosophies of nature, life, and production, connecting seventeenth- and eighteenth-century thought with recent European philosophy particularly Kant, Spinoza, and Deleuze.
Anne was also invited to meet Secretary of State Hilary Clinton during her latest visit and was recently inducted into the Women's Hall of Fame.
In the late eighteenth century, several thinkers attempted to fuse Kant’s transcendental idealism with Spinoza’s philosophy of immanence. Lord examines Kant’s relation to three of his Spinozistic readers – F.H. Jacobi, J.G. Herder, and Solomon Maimon – and investigates his response to their provocative suggestion that an immanent ontology solves the problems of transcendental idealism. Quantity
Terrorism and Global Security ($59.95 Pb, ISBN 9781420256406, NZRP$72.95) is an introductory text on terrorism and its impact on global security.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The Story of a Nobody
Mark Twain (1835-1910) was an American humorist, satirist, social critic, lecturer and novelist.
Anton Chekhov is one of the giants of modern literature.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer charts the escapades of a thirteen-year-old boy growing up on the banks of the Mississippi. Testing the patience of his Aunt Polly, the bold and sharp-witted Tom Sawyer frequently skips school in search of excitement, and the scrapes he gets into with his friend Huckleberry Finn range from innocent japes to more serious events such as the witnessing of a murder. One of the most popular and influential American novels, Mark Twain’s masterpiece is at the same time a highly entertaining romp which celebrates youth and freedom and a more profound investigation of his times, touching on themes such as race, revenge and slavery. $17.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491954, NZRP$22.95 Publish July 2011, 256 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction
A secret terrorist group infiltrates the household of a government official’s son, with a view to spying on the father and, ultimately, assassinating him. But the young man entrusted with the task - an ailing, world-weary “nobody” - seized with the purposelessness of life and a sense of his own impending death, gradually becomes disillusioned with his mission, and decides to embark on a new path which will lead him to tragedy. Combining psychological detail with a strong sense of place and time, The Story of a Nobody bears all the hallmarks of Chekhov’s genius, and perfectly captures the political and social tensions of its day. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491893, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 160 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction Quantity

The Death of Ivan Ilyich
The Tragedy of the Korosko
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) is regarded by some as the greatest novelist.
Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) is the celebrated author of many adventure novels.
Ivan Ilyich Golovin has spent his life in the pursuit of wealth and status, devoting himself obsessively to work and often neglecting his family in the process. When, after a small accident, he fails to make the expected recovery, it becomes clear that he is soon to die. Ivan then starts to question the futility and barrenness of his previous existence, realizing to his horror, as he grapples with the meaning of life and death, that he is totally alone. Included in this volume is another celebrated novella by Tolstoy, The Devil, which addresses the conflicts between desire, social norms and personal conscience, providing at the same time a further exploration of human fear and obsession. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491916, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 144 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction
As a group of Western tourists travel down the Nile on the steamer Korosko towards the historical sites near Egypt’s southern border, they are kidnapped by a marauding band of dervishes who demand their conversion to Islam. Cut off from the world, deprived of the comforts of civilized society and shaken in their beliefs, they will have to overcome the most arduous obstacles to regain their freedom and safety. The Tragedy of the Korosko calls into question the moral authority of Europe’s presence in the Arab peninsula and the cultural supremacy of British colonialism, all the while demonstrating Conan Doyle’s unparalleled ability as a storyteller. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491930, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 144 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction Quantity

Letters to Friends, Family and Editors
Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was one of the giants of 20th century German literature.
Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is considered to be the father of Italian poetry and one of the greatest influences in world literature.
This volume presents Kafka as son, brother, student, friend, lover, writer, critic, and revealing his fascination for life in all its complex, absurd and tragic manifestations. Though aware of the precariousness of letter-writing, Franz Kafka entrusted to letters many of his thoughts, impressions, experiences and expectations. These letters - which follow Kafka’s life from his student years through his experience as an insurance clerk to his final days, and explore his friendships with Max Brod, Feliz Weltsch and Oskar Baum - confirm his place as one of the great letter-writers of the twentieth century. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491947, NZRP$34.95 Publish July 2011, 528 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction Quantity

Poor People Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) is considered one of the greatest writers of all times.
9 781847 491909
Presented as a series of letters between the humble copying-clerk Devushkin and a distant relative of his, the young Varenka, Poor People brings to the fore the underclass of St Petersburg, who live at the margins of society in the most appalling conditions and abject poverty. As Devushkin tries to help Varenka improve her plight by selling anything he can, he is reduced to even more desperate circumstances and seeks refuge in alcohol, looking on helplessly as the object of his impossible love is taken away from him. Dostoevsky’s first full-length work of fiction is a poignant, tragi-comic tale which foreshadows the greatness of his later novels. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491909, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 192 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction Quantity July titles
Vita Nuova, with its unusual blend of prose and poetry, is universally recognized as Dante’s early masterpiece and provides an indispensable prequel to The Divine Comedy. Set in thirteenth-century Florence, part autobiography and part religious allegory, it traces Dante’s quest to find a poetic idiom worthy of Beatrice whom he had loved since boyhood. Her premature death plunges him into an emotional turmoil that finds release only through his faith in her continuing spiritual influence and through his determination “to write of her what has never been written of any woman”. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491923, NZRP$24.95 Publish July 2011, 144 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction Quantity

Raymond Queneau (1903-1976) was a poet, novelist, editor, scholar and mathematician.
Raymond Roussel (1877 - 1933) was a French poet, novelist, playwright, musician, chess enthusiast, neurasthenic, and drug addict.
On a crowded bus at midday, Raymond Queneau observes one man accusing another of jostling him deliberately. When a seat is vacated, the first man appropriates it. Later, in another part of town, Queneau sees the man being advised by a friend to sew another button on his overcoat. Exercises in Style retells this apparently unexceptional tale ninety- nine times, employing the sonnet and the alexandrine, “Ze Frrench” and “Cockney”, while an “Abusive” chapter heartily deplores the events. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847490735, NZRP$24.95 Published 2008, 224 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction

Cantarel, a scholarly scientist, whose enormous wealth imposes no limits upon his prolific ingenuity, is taking a group of visitors on a tour of "Locus Solus", his secluded estate near Paris. One by one he introduces, demonstrates and expounds the discoveries and inventions of his fertile, encyclopaedic mind. By each item in Cantarel's exhibition there hangs a tale.

The Flanders Road
Born in Madagascar and raised in France, Claude Simon (1913–2005) served in the French Resistance during the Second World War.
Marguerite Duras, in addition to novels, has written plays and film screenplays, the most famous of which is Hiroshima, Mon Amour. Born in French Indo-China in 1914, she died in Paris in early 1996.
During the German advance through Belgium into France in 1940, Captain de Reixach is shot dead by a sniper. Three witnesses, involved with him during his lifetime in different capacities – a distant relative, an orderly and a jockey who had an affair with his wife – remember him and help the reader piece together the realities behind the man and his death. A groundbreaking work, for which Claude Simon devised a prose technique mimicking the mind’s flexible thought processes, The Flanders Road is not only a masterpiece of stylistic innovation, but also a haunting portrayal of the chaos and savagery of war. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491510, NZRP$24.95 Published May 2011, 224 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction

Fascinated by the crime, Anne returns several times to the bistro where it took place, drinking through the afternoon with the worker who patiently answers her eager questions, inventing what he does not know. A haunting, oblique love story, which perfectly demonstrates Duras's technique of associating human emotion with locales and landscapes. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847490520, NZRP$24.95 Published 2008, 128 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction

The Flight of Icarus
The Sailor from Gibraltar
Raymond Queneau is best remembered for Exercises in Style and Zazie in the Metro.
Marguerite Duras won the Prix Goncourt in 1985 and has won many other prizes.
In late nineteenth-century Paris, the writer Hubert is shocked to discover that Icarus, the protagonist of the new novel he’s working on, has vanished. Looking for him among the manuscripts of his rivals does not solve the mystery, so a detective is hired to find the runaway character, who is now in Montparnasse, where he learns to drink absinthe and is picked up by a friendly prostitute. These hilarious adventures make Queneau’s novel, presented in the form of a script and parodying various genres, one of the best literary jokes in modern literature. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491022, NZRP$24.95 Published 2009, 120 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction
A young man on holiday in Italy walks out on his mistress and meets Anna - a beautiful, enigmatic woman who lives on a great white yacht. Anna is rich, and her life is entirely occupied with searching for her lover, the sailor from Gibraltar. She takes on the young man temporarily as her lover, and recounts to him the story of the sailor. The young man accompanies Anna on her search - a journey which takes them to France and Africa - even into the heart of the jungle. Slowly, love grows between them, and the sailor becomes not an impediment but an excuse which allows their love to flourish. Yet they exist in a state of suspension - for the sailor may always turn up to claim Anna. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847490667, NZRP$24.95 Published 2008, 288 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction

A person may be legally blind, yet not “blind enough” to qualify for social services. Beth Omansky explores the lives of legally blind people to show how society responds to those who don’t fit neatly into the disabled/nondisabled binary. Probing the experience of education, rehabilitation, and work, as well as the more intimate spheres of religion, family, and romantic relationships, her frank and theoretically sophisticated portrait of the legally blind experience offers an original insight into our understanding of the social construction of disability. $82.00 Hb, ISBN 9781588267801, NZRP$104.00 Publish July 2011, 229 pages Lynne Rienner Society & Culture Quantity

Particular focus is given to the major players in the industry and their ties to other areas of the cultural industries. It also examines labour and production in order to better address problems faced by potential workers in the industry, including lack of union representation, high employee dissatisfaction, gendered labor patterns, and lack of employee mobility.

In this exploration of intimate relationships between people with physical disabilities and those without, Sarah Smith Rainey shatters the myth of sexless, burdensome partnerships - and in its place reveals a rich and rewarding continuum of emotional and physical intimacies. Rainey draws on interviews, autobiographies, and films to show how disabled/nondisabled couples not only build mutually satisfying relationships by giving and receiving in equal measure, but also move beyond traditional gender roles to create new forms of sexual intimacy.

Boris Groys, Center for Art and Media Technology.
Modern communications systems have incessantly exposed us to reports of far flung and often horrifying events, experienced by people whom we do not know personally, and mediated by a range of changing technologies. What is the truth status of such ‘media witnessing’, and how does it depend on journalists and media organizations? What are its social, cultural and political ramifications, and what kind of moral demands can it make of audiences to act on behalf of suffering strangers? These are some of the themes taken up by the contributors to this volume. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230301351, NZRP$55.00 Publish July 2011, 248 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Society & Culture

The Paradox of Youth Violence
J. William Spencer, Purdue University.
Challenging Myths About Blue-Collar Labor
Is a teenage violent offender a dangerous predator - or a vulnerable innocent that we should rescue from a life of crime? J. William Spencer probes our ambivalent response to youth violence to show how deeply entwined issues of crime, age, race, and class distort our understanding of an important social problem. Spencer’s pointed yet nuanced analysis traces how misconceptions about youth violence - whether in the form of gangs, school violence, “superpredators,” or cyberbullying - take root in our national consciousness and undercut our attempts to remedy the problem. $82.00 Hb, ISBN 9781588267887, NZRP$104.00 Publish July 2011, 211 pages Lynne Rienner Society & Culture

Jeff Torlina challenges the conventional wisdom about the attitudes of blue-collar men toward their work. Torlina highlights the voices of pipe fitters, welders, carpenters, painters, locomotive assemblers, and factory workers to reveal the complexities-and advantages-of working-class life. These men see blue-collar labor as a desirable alternative to white-collar occupations; their work involves integrity, character, pride, and a connection with being “a real man,” values that they perceive as lost in white-collar office jobs. The result is a penetrating critique of many commonly held assumptions, and a compelling case for a new understanding of our social class system. $82.00 Hb, ISBN 9781588267566, NZRP$104.00 Publish July 2011, 220 pages Lynne Rienner Quantity Society & Culture

What world has been constructed for dancing through the use of the term ‘world dance’? What kinds of worlds do we as scholars create for a given dance when we undertake to describe and analyze it? This volume of essays, the product of the authors’ collective reckoning with these questions, endeavours to make new epistemological space for the analysis of the world’s dances. The essays challenge the very foundations upon which the terms ‘ethnic’ or ‘world’ dance were created. They examine the exclusionary processes of collection and classification through which the worldbuilding of various dance practices takes place, and as a result, how they acquire relative value and meaning. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230298385, NZRP$53.00 Publish July 2011, 224 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity The Arts

From King Kong to Candyman, the boundarypushing genre of the horror film has always been a site for provocative explorations of race in American popular culture. In Horror Noire, Robin R. Means Coleman traces the history of notable characterizations of blackness in horror cinema, and examines key levels of black participation on screen and behind the camera. She argues that horror offers a unique representational space for black people to challenge the more negative, or racist, images seen in other media outlets, and to portray greater diversity within the concept of blackness itself. $59.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415880206, NZRP$69.95 Publish July 2011, 288 pages Routledge Quantity The Arts

The Discourse of Politics in Action Politics as Usual
The Routledge Companion to Postmodernism
Ruth Wodak, Lancaster University, UK.
Nowadays we have unprecedented levels of access to information; politics and the media share a closer relationship than ever before, and the more successful politicians acquire the status of quasi-celebrities. Despite this, there is widespread disenchantment with politics, a growing cynicism about the political process, and much concern about the so-called ‘democratic deficit’. And yet, how much do we actually know about the real world of politics? In an extensive critical ethnography of the European Parliament, typical ‘orders and disorders of discourse’ are identified that illustrate the discursive mechanisms by which politics are organised in this and other arenas. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230300750, NZRP$58.00 Publish July 2011, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Literature
