IPG – FALL 2011

An unflinching look at the human condition in extreme places around the world

Occupants Photographs and Writings by Henry Rollins “Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” —Entertainment Weekly • $20,000 marketing budget; co-op available • Advertising in Mother Jones, and the Utne Reader • Author’s previous books sold more than 250,000 copies For the past 25 years, Henry Rollins has photographed the most desolate and inhospitable corners of the Earth, and his powerful vision has been harnessed in this photographic essay. Though he is known for the raw power of his expression, Rollins has shown that the greatest statements can be made with the simplest of acts: to bear witness; to be present. This collection is an invitation to do the same. The book pairs Rollins’ visceral photographs—taken in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Nepal, North Korea, Northern Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Siberia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam—with writings that provide context and political commentary and thereby magnify the impact of the images. This is a visual testimony of anger, suffering, resilience in the face of tragedy, and the quiet, stronger forces of healing, solidarity, faith, and joy. Henry Rollins is an author, actor, speaker, and musician best known for his work with the punk rock groups Black Flag and Rollins Band. He won a Grammy for the performance of his own book Get in the Van and hosts IFC’s The Henry Rollins Show and his own weekly radio show on KCRW out of Los Angeles. He founded and runs 2-13-61, a publishing company to release books, CDs, and DVDs. He lives in Los Angeles.

Wisdom from a tech-culture celebrity

Context Cory Doctorow “We should all hope and trust that our culture has the guts and moxie to follow [Cory Doctorow]. He’s got a lot to tell us.” —Bruce Sterling, author, Zeitgeist “Cory Doctorow straps on his miner’s helmet and takes you deep into the caverns and underground rivers of pop culture.” —Neil Gaiman, author, American Gods “The most articulate and accessible writer engaged in these topics.” —Time Out Chicago “More than just insightful, brilliant, and to the point—it’s also funny and fun to read.” —Electronic Frontier Foundation • Co-op available • Advertising in Locus magazine (November) One of the internet’s most celebrated hi-tech culture mavens returns with this second collection of essays and polemics. Discussing complex topics in an accessible manner, Cory Doctorow shares visions of a future where artists control their own destinies and where freedom of expression is tempered with the view that creators need to benefit from their own creations. From extolling the Etsy marketverse to excoriating Apple for dumbing-down technology while creating an information monopoly, each unique piece is brief, witty, and at the cutting edge of tech. Now a stay-at-home dad as well as an international activist, Doctorow writes as eloquently about creating internet real-time theater with his daughter as he does in lambasting the corporations that want to limit and profit from inherent intellectual freedoms. Cory Doctorow is a science fiction novelist, a blogger, a columnist, and a technology activist. He is the author of Content; Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom; Eastern Standard Tribe; Overclocked; and Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town and the coeditor of the website Boing Boing.

Excerpt: “Daddy, I want something on your laptop!” These are almost invariably the first words out my daughter Poesy’s mouth when she gets up in the morning (generally at 5am). Being a lifelong early riser, I have the morning shift. Being a parent in the 21st century, I worry about my toddler’s screen time—and struggle with the temptation to let the TV or laptop be my babysitter while I get through my morning email. Being a writer, I yearn to share stories with my two-year-old. . . . But the fun comes when we incorporate all this into our storytelling play. It started with Jack and the Beanstalk. I told her the story one morning while we were on summer vacation. She loved the booming FEE FI FOE FUM! but she was puzzled by unfamiliar ideas like beanstalks, castles, harps and golden eggs. So I pulled up some images of them (using Flickr image search). Later, I found two or three different animated versions of Jack’s story on YouTube, including the absolutely smashing Max Fleischer 1933 version. These really interested Poesy (especially the differences between all the adaptations), so one evening we made a Lego beanstalk and had an amazing time running around the house, play-acting Jack and the Beanstalk with various stuffed animals and such as characters.

Climate-change solutions so crazy they just might work

Mad Like Tesla Underdog Inventors and the Relentless Pursuit of Clean Energy Tyler Hamilton • Co-op available A search for the contemporary Nikola Tesla—considered a mad scientist by his society for predicting global warming more than 100 years ago—fuels this analysis of climate issues, which introduces thinkers and inventors who are working to find possible ways out of the energy crisis. From Louis Michaud, a retired refinery engineer who claims we can harness the energy of man-made tornadoes, to a professor and a businessman who are running a company that genetically modifies algae so it can secrete ethanol naturally, these individuals and their unorthodox methods are profiled through first-person interviews, exposing the social, economic, financial, and personal barriers that prevent them from making an impact with their ideas. The existing state of green energy technologies, such as solar, wind, biofuels, smart grid, and energy storage, is also explored, creating a sense of hope against a backdrop of climate dread. Tyler Hamilton writes a weekly green energy and technology column for the Toronto Star and a popular blog called “Clean Break.” He is the author of Privacy Payoff. He lives in Toronto. SCIENCE, 220 PAGES, 5.5 X 8.5 TRADE PAPER, $14.95 (CAN $16.95)

ISBN: 9781770410084 RIGHTS: US & CANADA ECW PRESS SEPTEMBER

Excerpt: The individuals and companies profiled in the chapters that follow play a crucial role in our energy future, even if they fail. That’s because, like Tesla, they still succeed by leading, by taking risks, by pursuing great leaps, and by keeping open minds when others remain so closed. They stand in contrast to monolithic corporations with disciplined management cultures and an aversion to disruptive technology. . . . But who are these people? What drives them? What goes through their mind? Though we see the sensational headlines that briefly shine a light on their unusual technologies—the so-called 15 minutes of fame—too often these innovators’ stories and their contributions to the world fade into the background. The real learning comes out of the journey behind the headline.

An unpredictably absurd and humorous romp

Salvatore Vol. 2: An Eventful Crossing Nicolas De Crécy “I love this book! Near-perfect. I can think of nothing better than another late night filled with pigs in overalls and bulls wearing AC/DC T-shirts.

Taking with him his reluctant assistant, a minuscule human who communicates only through a PC, Salvatore is headed to Latin America by way of Russia and the Bering Straits, a route he characterizes as epic, but which is designed to avoid the seas, of which Salvatore is deadly afraid. Along the way, he meets a pretty cat named Julie who, as it turns out, has adopted the missing piglet that Amandine the Sow has been desperately spending her last penny to find while, unbeknownst to her, the rest of her litter is busy in a lucrative endeavor of bio recycling.

Wax nostalgic with illustrated radio classics

Inner Sanctum Tales of Mystery Horror Suspense Ernie Colón • Co-op available • Author tour to include San Diego (July) and Washington, DC (September) Inner Sanctum is one of the most fondly remembered mystery and horror radio shows from the 1940s, and it is brought to life here with striking illustrations that re-create four chilling tales. In “The Horla,” a man is haunted by a mysterious, grotesque being that only he can see. At first, the being seeks to enslave the man, but it turns out the being is actually out to destroy him. “Death of a Doll” tells the tale of a reporter who is investigating the identity and death of an unidentified female corpse. Throughout his investigation, he carries her doll with him and, instead of “mama,” the doll continually cries out “Kara Nana,” another name for the devil. “The Undead” follows a young woman as she discovers a 10-year-old obituary for her living husband. Terrified, she goes to his tomb to investigate. The last story in the collection, “Alive in the Grave,” follows a man who may have unwittingly consigned another man to being buried alive. Ernie Colón is a comic artist who has worked for such companies as Broadway Comics, DC, Eclipse, Harvey Publications, Marvel, and Star Comics. He is the cocreator of The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation, After 9/11: America’s War on Terror (2001–), Anne Frank: The Anne Frank House Authorized Graphic Biography, Che: A Graphic Biography, and Vlad the Impaler.

It’s simply a delight.” —Andrew Smith, Scripps Howard News Service, on Boneyard Vol. 1 “Everything a comic about friendly monsters should be.

—Kat Kan, VOYA, on Boneyard Vol. 1

• Co-op available • Author’s previous books sold more than 50,000 copies All the usual horror suspects are present in this wry comic spoof, the first four volumes of which are gathered here. When Michael Paris travels to the remote town of Raven Hollow to check out the plot of land he has recently inherited, he is shocked to discover that it is basically a cemetery, and the villagers want it razed because it is populated with a whole host of apparently frightening monsters. The opening issues of this exciting graphic novel series follow Michael on his encounters with an attractive vampire, a swamp girl, zombies, and many more creatures, as he finds out which ones are not as evil as they seem—and which ones are.

Racy and riveting stories

Miss Don’t Touch Me Complete Set Hubert and Kerascoet “It’s hard to imagine a sequential art story better than this in terms of character development, plotting, realization of settings, and interconnection between visual and narrative elements. The coloring alternately provides glowing light and scary shadows in fine re-creations.” —Booklist “A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss Don’t Touch Me, a charming, Gallic twist on the murder mystery . . . and anything but prudish.” —Carlo Wolff, Boston Globe Combining both volumes of the bestselling series, these two tales take place in 1930s Paris. In the first story, the “Butcher of the Dances” is on the prowl for young, loose women, and local dominatrix Agatha suddenly turns up dead. Everyone assumes it was suicide, but her sister Blanche is convinced that the butcher is responsible. She decides to take matters into her own hands, and in her pursuit, she ends up hired into a luxury house of call girls. She soon becomes adept at certain practices, but she does not lose sight of her ultimate goal—to find her sister’s killer. In the second volume, Blanche works to sort out her dissolute mother’s life while falling in love with a secretly gay client, and their story unfolds in an era where cranial surgery was considered a “cure” for homosexuality. Suspenseful and spicy, these narratives feature visual details both beautiful and hideous, with descriptions and dialogue that are deceptive in their realism. Hubert is the author of the Miss Don’t Touch Me series. Kerascoet is the pseudonym for a husband and wife team who have contributed to the Miss Don’t Touch Me series and the Dungeon series.

“Grass is all right,” she said to the boy, because he kept shoving it into her mouth, “but what I would really like is a flower, a daisy or a violet.” Then she told herself, don’t be foolish. The child can’t hear you, none of these people can. But the boy promptly got up, walked a little way from the tree, and came back to her with a bunch of violets. He sat down next to her again and fed her the violets one by one. Sometimes he even ate one himself. “They taste good, don’t they?” said the unicorn, before she suddenly realized that the little boy had understood what she had said to him. “Can you hear me?” she demanded. “Can you speak to me? Do you know what I am?” “Horse,” the boy answered calmly, and he would not say another word until they had eaten all the violets. Then he looked over the unicorn’s head and said “Mommy,” and the unicorn turned and saw a woman walking down the road towards them. She heard her calling to the boy.

Excerpt:

“Child,” the unicorn said, “Child, I have nothing to give you, but if you can speak to me, if you can tell me where my people are hiding, I will think of you when there is no one left in the world to remember your name.” Then, realizing that this was nothing to say to a child, she added, “And I will take you for a ride on my back whenever you wish.”

Excerpt: In those old ballads, these three are named the Keepers of the Isles. Two rule land; one rules sea. Most beloved is Hafarl, the Summerlord, who rules from Beltane until Samhain. They sing of him as being tall and strong as a mountain’s back, with hair like green fields, eyes like deep woods, horns sweeping from his brow like the eldest oak in Dergwyth Wood. They tell of his long staff, Meynbos, shaped of legendary stonewood, bound three times with bands of swirling dhruidic runes, calendared with the histories of high and far times, strange as an erlkin’s riddling. His rule was one of order—of spring leading surely into summer’s bounty, autumn reaping her treasures with gentle reverence, their flow, season into season, like a stately dance, as old as time, though not so old as Cernunnos. Sometimes they sing of Lothan, who rules the cold months of winter. He they will not name, couching their references in titles such as the Icelord, or the Shadowed One, or the Mocker. They sing of him being as tall as his brother Hafarl, but with a voice like the howl of winter winds, and hair and eyes as bleak as whitened bone. He it is who carries the great sword Yaljoryon, the Deathreaper.

Taking a delightful departure from his more common urban-fantasy settings, this epic tale from acclaimed author Charles de Lint weaves elements of Celtic and Nordic mythology while bringing sword and sorcery to the forefront. Summer magic is waning in the Green Isles, and the evil Icelord is encasing the lands in a permanent frost while coastal towns are pillaged by snake ships. Mounting one last defense against the onslaught, a mysterious old wizard instructs his inexperienced apprentice in the art of shape-changing. Mercilessly pursued by the Icelord’s army, this newfound mage gathers allies—a seemingly ordinary young woman and her protective adoptive family—and they flee north in a desperate race to awaken the Summerlord. Time is running short for the Summerborn, especially when a treacherous family betrayal is discovered. Charles de Lint is the bestselling author of more than 60 adult, young adult, and children’s books, including The Blue Girl, Moonheart, The Onion Girl, and Widdershins. He is a reviewer for the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and the recipient of the World Fantasy, YALSA, Crawford, and Aurora awards. He lives in Ottawa, Ontario.

Imaginative yarns woven into historical contexts

The Bible Repairman and Other Stories Tim Powers “Powers writes action and adventure that Indiana Jones could only dream of. And, just when it threatens to get out of hand, there’s a dash of humor and irony that keeps you reading for the joy of it.” —Washington Post “Tim Powers is a genius.”

—Algis Budrys, author, The Falling Torch

• Co-op available • Advertising in Locus magazine and the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (October) • Author’s previous books have sold more than 150,000 copies Gathering darkly fantastic short fiction previously available only in limited editions, this collection explores the mysteries of souls— whether they are sacrificed on the pinnacle of Mount Parnassus or lodged in a television cable box. In a Kabbalistic tale of transformation, the executor of an old friend’s will is almost duped into housing his soul. In a tale of time travel between 2015 and 1975, a tragedy sparked by an angel falling onto a pizza shop is reenacted— and the event is barely, but fatally, altered. The cornerstone of the collection is a postscript to the harrowing novel of the haunting of the Romantic poets, The Stress of Her Regard. Once Byron and Shelley break free of the succubus that claimed them, their associate, Trelawny, forges an alliance with Greek rebels to reestablish the deadly connection between man and the nephilim. Fans of Powers’s renowned secret histories will delight as he deftly weaves an array of fantastical creatures into richly layered narratives of the past. Tim Powers is the author of 12 novels, including The Anubis Gates, Declare, Last Call, and Three Days to Never. He has received the Philip K. Dick, World Fantasy, and Locus awards.

Excerpt: “I don’t do that work anymore,” said Torrez patiently, “ransoming ghosts. You want to call Seaweed in Corona.” “I don’t want you to ransom a ghost,” the man said, holding the box toward Torrez. “I already had old Humberto do that, yesterday. This is for you.” “If Humberto ransomed your daughter,” Torrez said carefully, nodding toward the box but not taking it, “then why are you here?” “My daughter is not a ghost. My daughter is twelve years old, and this man took her when she was walking home from school. I can pay you fifteen hundred dollars to get her back—this is extra, a gift for you, from me, with the help of Humberto.”

Excerpt: Niko stalked back to her coffee table and picked up the bright trophy lying there. She eyed it carefully. The vial was shaped like an infinity symbol, two lobes with a narrow causeway in between. It felt warm, alive, smooth like glass, perhaps some alien plastic, and was designed to be broken at the weak point and upended on the tongue. In a recent lab experiment, the virus had been diluted a hundredfold and given to test subjects without a single successful contagion, except for Rix. Nor could it be transferred from person to person in any way. The transmission of the virus was the greatest biological mystery in the universe. Each activated sample was target specific to a single human host—in this case, to her alone. She had been chosen to live forever. She tossed the vial to the table as though it was a burning ember.

Long-out-of-print Moorcock classic brought back for a new generation

Byzantium Endures The First Volume of the Colonel Pyat Quartet Michael Moorcock Introduction by Alan Wall Meet Maxim Arturovitch Pyatnitski, also known as Pyat. Tsarist rebel, Nazi thug, continental conman and reactionary counterspy: the dark and dangerous antihero of Michael Moorcock’s most controversial work. Published in 1981 to great critical acclaim— then condemned to the shadows and unavailable in the United States for 30 years—Byzantium Endures, the first of the Pyat quartet, is not a book for the faint-hearted. It is the story of a cocaine addict, sexual adventurer, and obsessive anti-Semite whose epic journey from Leningrad to London connects him with scoundrels and heroes from Trotsky to Makhno and whose career echoes that of the 20th century’s descent into fascism and total war. This is Moorcock at his audacious, iconoclastic best: a grand sweeping overview of the events of the last century, as revealed in the secret journals of modern literature’s most proudly unredeemable outlaw. This authoritative edition presents the author’s final cut, restoring previously forbidden passages and deleted scenes.

Like Carroll, Rucker is a mathematician who not only enjoys paradoxes, but can propagate that enjoyment as pure lunatic humor.” —Washington Post “Rucker’s writing is great like the Ramones are great: a genre stripped to its essence, attitude up the wazoo, and cartoon sentiments that reek of identifiable lives and issues.” —NY Review of Science Fiction • Author’s previous books sold more than 67,000 copies • Part of the Outspoken Authors series Combining both the fiction and nonfiction of one of the most unique contemporary science fiction writers, this collection offers a rare look into Rudy Rucker’s mind as an author and mathematician.

Broken Trust Stories of Pain, Hope, and Healing from Clerical Abuse Survivors and Abusers Patrick Fleming, Sue Lauber-Fleming, and Mark T. Matousek “Within the area of sexual abuse, this might be the most helpful single book you can read . . . systematic . . . sympathetic . . . fair . . . insightful.” —Rev. Ronald Rolheiser, author, The Shattered Lantern “The truth that sets us free is not just theoretical and philosophical, but often feels much more like simple honesty. We must speak with honesty without seeking vengeance or creating more victims. Here is a book of such healing honesty.” —Richard Rohr, author, The Naked Now “A must read for those struggling to understand why priests abuse, why victims suffer, and why all sides are in need of healing.” —Susan Archibald, president, The Healing Alliance “This masterful look at woundedness, healing, and hope, is a tour de force.” —Paula D’Arcy, author, Gift of the Red Bird • Winner of three Catholic Press Association Awards • Advertising in America, National Catholic Reporter, and Spirituality & Health Collecting the personal accounts of both survivors and abusers, this document serves to create—for the very first time—an open dialogue about the clerical abuse scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church in the United States. Presenting profound psychological insight, a panel of therapists and experts give a powerful voice to the long-silent survivors, revealing the pain, trauma, shame, and devastation experienced at the hands of those most trusted.

Providing a transparent glimpse into the horror of abuse, Catholics, counselors, and therapists alike will find the insights offered in these firsthand accounts to be a powerful tool for learning from the past, and preventing such atrocities from happening again.

Excerpt: As you read these stories you may have a number of mixed and conflicting emotions: revulsion, nausea, anger or even rage, sadness, grief, compassion, and hope. You may even find yourself wanting to turn away from these stories. We understand all of these reactions, because, in the progression of our work first with victims and then with abusers, we have experienced all of them as well. . . . Throughout our years of work with victims and abusers, the sustaining emotion and belief has been hope, hope that healing and recovery are possible for all. We are simply telling the story behind the headlines, the tragic yet very human and ultimately hopeful story of the priest abuser and his victims. It is not our intention to write a professional therapy book. The heart of this book is the stories of the five priests and three victims we invited to participate. Though there are as many unique stories as there are victims and priests who have abused, we believe these eight stories will provide a new window into this human tragedy.

Rethinking Jesus as an activist, rebel, leader, and first cultural contrarian

Christianity’s Dangerous Memory A Rediscovery of the Revolutionary Jesus Diarmuid O’Murchu “Diarmuid O’Murchu is a spiritual genius.”

—Richard Rohr, author, The Naked Now

“A truly powerful read. O’Murchu does not flinch from speaking his truth with clarity and forthrightness backed by excellent and extensive research.” —Barbara Fiand, author, In the Stillness You Will Know • Co-op available • Advertising in Christian Advance, National Catholic Reporter (September), and Spirituality & Health • Author’s previous books sold more than 50,000 copies

Excerpt: Jesus lived dangerously! He did not fit into the conventional culture of his day. He questioned many of its core beliefs. He sought to empower the marginalized and oppressed. And he paid the ultimate price for living so dangerously. For almost two thousand years the Christian church sought to elevate Jesus onto a patriarchal pedestal. Jesus became the exalted divine hero, a perfect image of the kingly God. We had come a long way from the prophetic countercultural rebel of Galilee. Biblical scholarship of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries seeks to reclaim what has been lost along the way. We have overpoliticized Jesus, but also overspiritualized him. We have made him so powerful on the one hand and so “holy” on the other that his grounded incarnational connection with us has been badly strained. Subliminally, we never lost it, and today it is being retrieved in a way that brings alive once more the prophetic inspiration of foundational wisdom.

Drawing from the best contemporary scholarship, bestselling author Diarmuid O’Murchu deconstructs the history of Christianity, and specifically the life of Jesus Christ, as it has evolved over the past two thousand years. With rich language and clear metaphors, O’Murchu speaks to every Christian who is fed up with a revisionist Christian doctrine based on banal ideas and who desperately seeks affirmation that the Christian faith is a much bigger, deeper, and more challenging institution than churches have ever acknowledged or proclaimed. According to O’Murchu, Jesus was never an earthly prince, but rather the first rebel, a countercultural outsider who sought to empower the oppressed and marginalized while questioning the core beliefs of longstanding institutions—and ultimately paying a mortal price for his convictions. Using this portrait of Jesus, each chapter addresses a range of common human problems that Christ himself overcame, such as understanding others, resolving hostilities, discovering empowerment by suffering, and preserving personal identity in a globalized world. O’Murchu’s stunning conclusions serve to reintroduce the world to the revolutionary Jesus, giving His story new life and relevance for the modern age. Diarmuid O’Murchu is a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin, a member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order, and the author of Jesus in the Power of Poetry and Quantum Theology.

God’s intrinsic and guiding role throughout human history

History in His Hands A Christian Narrative of the West Brennan Pursell “A refreshing tour through familiar territory from an unfamiliar perspective. Dr. Pursell allows a convert’s vibrancy of faith to inform his historical analysis without oversimplifying it.” —Fr. John Bartunek, author, The Better Part “Finally, we have an accessible, popular history that dares to subordinate secular history to the Christian story of salvation history. There is no other book that I could recommend as highly as an introduction to a Catholic view of human history.” —Christopher Shannon, author, Bowery to Broadway: The American Irish in Classic Hollywood Cinema • $20,000 marketing budget; co-op available • Advertising in First Things, www.insidecatholic.com, National Catholic Register, and the Wall Street Journal • Author’s previous books sold more than 20,000 copies Opposing the common exclusion of God from an active role in human history, this work explains how His role exists and can be witnessed in humanity’s complicated dualities—in time and space, war and peace, wealth and poverty, and love and hatred. Arguing that history is a master plan—that God, who is reason and love, wills human existence—Dr. Pursell weaves his thesis through both divine revelation and specific historical events. He explains in accessible terms that God’s plan for human history is that of unity in opposing forces; that historical periods are secular constructs— despite human ingenuity and industrialization, all humankind is part of one historical period under God, defined not by machines but by morals. In a style that is both fluid and engrossing, Dr. Pursell offers Christians and historians alike a new vision of human history that is sure to inspire as much as it educates. Brennan Pursell is a professor of history at DeSales University and is the author of Benedict of Bavaria and The Winter King.

Excerpt: This book tells the story of humanity’s movement in time, with God as the central character. We, all people everywhere, share in the same, common journey, and God, though hidden, is there, ever-present, behind and above us, on all sides, and in our very midst. . . . The narrative is Christian, because it maintains that Jesus of Nazareth was who he said he was, did what he did, and said what he said, as far as we poor humans can know, relying mainly on the New Testament as the best set of textual sources about him. Jesus was, and is, in some mysterious, ultimately inexplicable way, God and Love. This revelation, God’s self-revealing to us, together with history, shows us his will for humanity across all time.

Excerpt: On “toleration”: Religion is a good to be embraced and defended, not an evil to be put up with. No one speaks of tolerating chocolate pudding or a spring walk in the park. By speaking of religious tolerance, we take religion an unfortunate fact to be borne with—like noisy neighbors and crowded buses—not a blessing to be celebrated. Here it is instructive to recall that modern ideas of religious tolerance sprang from the European Enlightenment project. A central tenet of this project was the notion of progress, understood as the overcoming of the ignorance of superstition and religion to usher in the age of reason and science. . . . The Philosophes would downplay or even ridicule religion in the firm belief that it would soon disappear altogether. Thus, separation of Church and state becomes separation of public life and religious belief. Religion should be excluded from public conversation and relegated to the intimacy of home and chapel. Religious tolerance is therefore a myth, but a myth imposed by an anti-religious intellectual elite.

Providing insight and into the world’s most pressing concerns— those of human rights, human dignity, and world peace—bestselling author and priest Thomas D. Williams adds his reassuring voice to the panoply of issues that call to question the meaning of faith. One of the most trusted and dynamic voices from the Catholic community and the official Vatican analyst for CBS News, Father Williams helps parishioners step back from today’s controversies and understand Catholic teachings in a deeper way. Addressing the most heated debates ripped from national headlines and fervently discussed between Catholics—from abortion and capital punishment to the economy—Father Williams draws upon his years of teaching in this detailed yet accessible analysis of the moral dilemmas and political challenges that Catholics face every day. Examining these moral conflicts, and the often opposing forces of individual rights versus those of the community, Father Williams speaks to orthodox Catholics and non-Catholic observers alike in this examination of the Catholic faith, it’s influence around the world, and what it teaches millions of followers about human rights and a better world. Thomas D. Williams is a nationally recognized Catholic priest and the Vatican analyst for CBS News. He teaches at the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical Atheneum and is the bestselling author of Spiritual Progress. He lives in Rome.

Excerpt: When we are children we dream of success, of marrying that prince or princess, building a castle together, and filling it with children. But sometimes our dreams don’t come true. The prince turns out to be an unrepentant frog, the castle is more like a ruin, and no matter how many rainbows we chase, wealth and happiness continue to hide at the end of the next rainbow. Yet somehow, through it all, as Christians we are encouraged to hold on to our hope. Regardless of the crosses you have had to carry, I want to assure you that there is hope for your future and there is purpose to your life. It is my intention, in this book, to help you confront the disappointments of your life head-on, to face the challenges with courage, and to learn to respond in such a way that God will be able to lead you step-by-step out of your darkness and into the light of his peace and truth.

A celebration of the riches of Catholic faith

The Difference God Makes A Catholic Vision of Faith, Communion, and Culture Francis Cardinal George, OMI • Co-op available • Advertising in America (October), Commonweal and National Catholic Register (November), and First Things (March) • New in paper; also available in cloth (9780824525828) Penned by the leading intellectual in the American Catholic hierarchy, this debut brings together some of the most influential writings on the Catholic vision—not just the Church itself but of the relation and unity of all people. Weaving together intellectual insight and personal wisdom, Francis Cardinal George offers a luminous Catholic vision of communion, illustrating the Church’s relation to numerous religions as well as the secular world. The book draws from both the author’s observations of Catholicism in cultures around the globe and countless theologians’ perspectives—including Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Thomas Aquinas, and Francis of Assisi—and demonstrates how to recognize the self-giving, liberating God who provides freedom from the competitive, oppressive idols of secular modernity. Confronting controversial issues head-on, this volume will inspire Christians everywhere while also offering non-Christians a renewed understanding of what a Christian lifestyle means for political and personal life today. Francis Cardinal George, OMI, has served as the president of the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops; vicar general of the Oblates; bishop of Yakima, Washington; and archbishop of Chicago.

A queen indulges in her love of nature and changes her country’s landscape forever

Queen Elizabeth in the Garden A Story of Love, Rivalry, and Spectacular Gardens Trea Martyn “A delightful, absorbing read, a cornucopia of amazing new facts about the Virgin Queen.” —Sunday Times “Gardening-as-politicking is a seductive and original idea. . . . Trea Martyn’s descriptions of gardens . . . are excellent. . . . In evocative and lively prose she leads the reader along.” —Guardian • Co-op available Taking a fresh and original approach to the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth I, this book tells the incredible story of her great passion for gardens, and how the two most powerful men in England during her reign fought a decade-long duel for their queen’s affections by creating lavish gardens for her. It chronicles how, in their quest to woo the queen and outdo each other, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and William Cecil, Baron of Burghley, competed for Elizabeth’s favor by laying out innovative and extravagant pleasure grounds at their palaces for when she came to visit. As she played one off against the other, they created gorgeous palaces and landscapes that amazed the world. The book also describes how others in England and abroad followed Dudley’s and Cecil’s leads and how the queen’s love of plants made gardeners of courtiers, statesmen, and soldiers. This meticulously researched account reveals how Elizabeth’s enthusiasm for horticulture changed the world, encouraging gardeners and designers to create landscapes inspired by the spirit of the Elizabethan garden. Trea Martyn completed a PhD in 18th-century literature at University College London. She has taught garden history at Birkbeck College at the University of London and landscape history at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art in London, and she lectures widely on garden history.

Excerpt: On the last night of the entertainments at Warwick Castle before the court left for Kenilworth, in August 1572, the guests followed a zigzag path to the top of an artificial hill, which had once been a lookout post. At the summit stood a canvas pavilion decorated with roses and honeysuckle. Lanterns hung at the entrance, and, inside, candles lit up the walls, which were painted with flowers. From a ceiling painted with the moon, the stars and clouds, vines dangled baskets of apples, oranges and pears, some covered with gold leaf. Sweet-smelling herbs lined the floor. At the back of the pavilion, Queen Elizabeth sat on a throne on a low platform, beneath a purple canopy embroidered with gold and studded with pearls. She was dressed in white, black and gold—so was Dudley, who was telling her a story, kneeling on a velvet cushion. Diamonds sparkled in her hair. She wore a ruby and diamond ring and ropes of pearls around her neck and wrists. Her ladies-in-waiting sat at her feet. Like all of her courtiers and servants, they wore black and white (her colours, which she had adopted as a princess, during her semi-exile from court). Her host and hostess, Lord and Lady Warwick, stood near by (Warwick was Dudley's brother). Boys dressed in silk served candied fruits and spices on gold platters. The guests drank Gascony wine, and music played in the background. To one side, Cecil was talking to the official who had accompanied him and the Queen on her last scandalous visit to Kenilworth.

“An extraordinary book.”

—Booklist

• Co-op available • New in paper; also available in cloth (9781933346212) A handwritten serial number inside a neglected 1807 Broadwood square piano inspired this illuminating story of an almost-forgotten musical instrument that transformed the musical and cultural perceptions of the western world. Square pianos were the first popular pianos, and the core of the classical piano repertoire— Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven—was written for such early pianos. This absorbing history leads back to the early days of the Industrial Revolution and the birth of mass production, commoditization, and global distribution of pianos from the ports of London to the shores of America and around the world. Both an investigative story and genealogical study that highlights a key period in music history, this chronicle closely examines the roles of John Broadwood—the most successful piano maker in lateGeorgian London—and of one of his professional customers, Mr. John Langshaw, an organist and music master. Madeline Goold holds a law degree from the London School of Economics. A sculptor and artist, she has also taught piano, which she has played since childhood.

Against the backdrop of 14th-century Europe—a time of social turmoil, outbreaks of the bubonic plague, a catastrophic war that devastated the continent, and an overall transition between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance—this biography offers an entry point into the life of Catherine of Siena, an oftentimes irreverent, intense, and fiery woman. Deeply researched and based on the latest sources, this history recalls Saint Catherine, as she would later be called, as a champion of peace who cajoled and, at times, begged popes, monarchs, and ordinary citizens to do her will. Describing her sheer fortitude and personal magnetism, this absorbing account details the spiritual and political beliefs of Catherine of Siena as she attempted to restore order to a fractured Italian city-state system, campaigned Pope Gregory XI in Avignon to return the papacy to Rome, and tried to resolve the Western Schism of 1378—a challenge that proved to be her ultimate test.

The missing puzzle piece to the closest presidential race in American history

The Gumshoe and the Shrink Guenther Reinhardt, Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker, and the Secret History of the 1960 Kennedy/Nixon Election David L. Robb • Co-op available Combining a detective story with political intrigue, this recollection delves into the infamous presidential battle between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy—and the lengths to which both parties went to destroy one another. The history introduces two key personalities: a manic-depressive private eye named Guenther Reinhardt and Richard Nixon’s psychoanalyst, Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker. Illustrating how Reinhardt was hired to destroy the Republican candidate and how he eventually discovered Nixon was in therapy, the study also details how Nixon was already plotting to destroy his rival, revealing that the young and charismatic senator from Massachusetts had his own medical secret. This controversial chronicle features Reinhardt’s full confidential report on Nixon’s treatment as well as Dr. Hutschnecker’s unpublished memoirs, providing many insights into his “forbidden” relationship with the former president and Nixon’s own intriguing psychology. Containing several new photographs that have never been seen before, this is the shocking true story of secrets kept and secrets revealed, the men and women who guarded those secrets, and those who would expose them.

Excerpt: It was a warm and humid September afternoon on the Upper East Side of Manhattan as Guenther Reinhardt, one of the nation’s strangest and most mysterious private detectives, stood at the door of the swank Park Avenue offices of Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker, Vice President Richard Nixon’s psychoanalyst. It was 1960, and the most storied presidential election in American history was only two months away.

Few real-life private detectives have careened through life with more adventure, intrigue and misery than Guenther Reinhardt. By his own account, he’d covered the 1924 treason trial of Adolf Hitler; predicted the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; witnessed the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War; busted the German-American Bund; interviewed Leon Trotsky’s assassin in a Mexican jail; uncovered the theft of billions of dollars of Reichsbank gold, and chased Communist and Nazi spies all over Europe and North America. But he was always broke, always scrambling for money, and not above concocting a few facts to make a better story—or selling the information he’d gathered along the way to the highest bidder.

The newspapers and magazines of a worldchanging generation

On the Ground An Illustrated Anecdotal History of the Sixties Underground Press in the U.S. Edited by Sean Stewart “Serves as a valuable contribution to countercultural history.” —Paul Krassner, author, Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture “One should not underestimate the significant value of this book. It gives you real insights into the underground press and its vast diversity of publications, which translated into a taste of real people’s power.” —Emory Douglas, former Black Panther Party Minister of Culture and graphic artist • Author tour to include Austin and San Francisco (November) • Contributors’ previous books sold more than 700,000 copies Forthright anecdotes and interviews fill this eye-opening account of the birth of the underground newspaper movement. Stemming from frustration with the lack of any mainstream media criticism of the Vietnam War, the creation of the papers was emboldened by the victories of the Civil Rights–era, anticolonial movements in the Third World and the use of LSD. In the four short years from 1965–1969, the subversive press grew from five small newspapers in five cities in the United States to more than 500 newspapers— with millions of readers—all over the world. Stories by the people involved with the production and distribution of the papers, such as Bill Ayers, Paul Buhle, Paul Krassner, and Trina Robbins, bring the history of the movement to life. Full-color scans taken from a broad range of publications, from the Berkeley Barb and the Los Angeles Free Press to Chicago Seed and Screw: The Sex Review, are also included, showing the incredible energy that fueled the counterculture of the 1960s.

An extraordinary memoir from a life-long radical

Love and Struggle My Life in SDS, the Weather Underground, and Beyond David Gilbert Introduction by Boots Riley “David’s is a unique and necessary voice forged in the growing American gulag, the underbelly of the ‘land of the free,’ offering a focused and unassailable critique as well as a vision of a world that could be but is not yet—a place of peace and love, joy and justice.” —Bill Ayers, author, Fugitive Days and Teaching Toward Freedom “Like many of his contemporaries, David Gilbert gambled his life on a vision of a more just and generous world. His particular bet cost him the last three decades in prison, and whether or not you agree with his youthful decision, you can be the beneficiary of his years of deep thought, reflection, and analysis on the reality we all share. If there is any benefit to prison, what some refer to as ‘the involuntary monastery,’ it may well look like this book. I urge you to read it.” —Peter Coyote, author, Sleeping Where I Fall “This book should stimulate learning from our political prisoners, but more importantly it challenges us to work to free them, and in doing so take the best of our history forward.” —Susan Rosenberg, author, An American Radical

Excerpt: In the early ’70s, as activists in a range of movements felt impelled to initiate armed struggle, several were killed. Two ex-SNCC workers died in an explosion in the East, and a carload of Chicano militants blew up in the Southwest. Mourning these losses, I had no way to assess, given the nature of the times, whether these activists had been assassinated by police agents or had died, like our townhouse comrades, in a flawed effort to begin armed resistance. There were definitely crucial lessons that had to be learned about storing and handling explosives—-had infiltrators purposely supplied them with unstable dynamite? I also wondered whether the police had put out deliberate disinformation about building circuits. In those days, many anonymous tactical guides were in circulation. Could one have a short circuit built into it? The Anarchist Cookbook, the most widely distributed manual on tactics, was a possible candidate—but I didn’t manage to get my hands on it to analyze their diagram for a short. Even with my limited ability to do anything about this grave problem, I was extremely remiss in not pursuing the issue in a more determined way.

Written from the maximum-security prison where he has lived for almost 30 years, this enlightening memoir chronicles the militant career of David Gilbert, a radical activist whose incarceration is due to his involvement in the 1982 Brinks robbery, an attempted expropriation that resulted in four deaths. From his entry into the world of political activism as the founder of Students for a Democratic Society at Columbia University to his departure from public life in order to help build the clandestine resistance to war and racism known as the Weathermen, Gilbert relates all of the victories he has achieved and obstacles he has encountered during his struggle to build a new world. In telling the intensely personal story he is stripped of all illusions and assesses his journey from liberal to radical to revolutionary with rare humor and frankness. A firsthand glimpse into the terrors and triumphs of the 1960s and beyond, Love and Struggle is as candid and uncompromising as its author. David Gilbert is a political prisoner who appeared in the Academy Award–nominated film The Weather Underground. He is the author of No Surrender and is in prison in Dannemora, New York. Boots Riley is the former leader of the Coup, a music group declared “the best hip-hop act of the past decade” by Billboard magazine. He formed a new group, Street Sweeper Social Club, with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine. He lives in Oakland, California.

The Bay Area’s commune revolution

West of Eden

A master historian’s reinterpretation of the legendary explorer

Communes and Utopia in Northern California

1492–1992

Edited by Iain Boal, Janferie Stone, Michael Watts, and Cal Winslow

The Legacy of Columbus

In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, a large portion of the population had become disenchanted with the American way of life that they did not feel they belonged to. While some openly revolted in the streets, others took to turning away from the mainstream and headed toward a new world. Utopian visions, manifesting themselves in the form of communes, were aimed at breaking the bonds of capitalism, big business, and the reigning oligarchy and were popping up throughout the country. The San Francisco Bay Area was the hotbed of these communes, and from Height-Ashbury in San Francisco, east to Berkeley’s protest hub at Sproul Plaza, and south to Oakland’s Black Panther’s communal households, this is an exploration of this unique cultural revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. The history and vision of communal living is investigated in a series of essays aimed at explaining just what these communes were, how lives were lived within them, and what their goals entailed.

“Howard’s life and work are a persistent reminder that our own subjective judgments of the likelihood of success in engaging human problems are of little interest, to ourselves or others. What matters is to take part, as best we can, in the small actions of unknown people that can stave off disaster and bring about a better world, to honor them for their achievement, to do what we can to ensure that these achievements are understood and carried forward.” —Noam Chomsky, author, Understanding Power

An IWW Anthology Third edition Edited by Joyce L. Kornbluh Introduction by Fred Thompson Contribution by Franklin Rosemont Preface by Daniel Gross • Previous editions sold more than 10,000 copies The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), commonly known as the Wobblies, were among the most well-respected and largest unions in the United States in the early 20th century. Having organized the first major automobile industry strike as well as major coalfield and transit workers strikes, the IWW has a history of being a fierce advocate for the worker. Long before most other unions, IWW welcomed women, African Americans, and immigrants into their ranks, making the Wobblies among the most progressive organizations of the era. As the only comprehensive history of the IWW, this chronicle anthologizes nearly every important document and essay in the Wobblies’ rich history. The impact of the IWW has reverberated through the history of unions and organized labor, and this is their story. Joyce L. Kornbluh is the author of A New Deal for Worker’s Education. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Fred Thompson was a publisher with Charles H. Kerr. Franklin Rosemont was a poet, an artist, a historian, and the cofounder of the Chicago Surrealist Group.

A Documentary History of the West Virginia Mine Wars Edited by David Alan Corbin Telling the powerful story of the West Virginia coal mining rebellions of the early 20th century, this book collects material from the leaders, the miners, and the journalists sent to report on the 1912 and 1921 West Virginia mine wars—explosive examples of strikes and union battles. Featured in the text are articles, speeches, and discussions between union leaders such as Samuel Gompers, Frank Keeney, Fred Mooney, Bill Blizzard, and Mother Jones. Also included are U.S. Senate committee testimonies from miners and their family members describing life and work in the coal camps and explaining their participation in the violence. These facts clearly portray the human cost of industry and present the hard choices of a rebellious and often politically radical populace who refuses to be beleaguered under any circumstances.

The rich history of leftist philosophy from the United Kingdom

Voices of dissent prior to the founding of the Weimar Republic

Anarchist Seeds beneath the Snow

All Power to the Councils!

Left-Libertarian Thought and British Writers from William Morris to Colin Ward David Goodway “A splendid survey of ‘left-libertarian thought’ in this country, it has given me hours of delight and interest. Though it is very learned, it isn’t dry. Goodway’s friends in the awkward squad (especially William Blake) are both stimulating and comforting companions in today’s political climate.” —A. N. Wilson, Daily Telegraph From William Morris to Oscar Wilde and George Orwell, left-libertarian thought has long been an important but neglected part of British cultural and political history. In this detailed study, David Goodway seeks to recover and revitalize that indigenous anarchist tradition. This book succeeds as both a cultural history of left-libertarian thought in Britain and an application of that history to current politics. The author argues that a recovered anarchist tradition could—and should—be a touchstone for contemporary political radicals. Moving seamlessly from Aldous Huxley and Colin Ward to the war in Iraq, this challenging volume will energize leftist movements throughout the world. David Goodway is a British social and cultural historian who has written principally on anarchism and libertarian socialism for 20 years.

A Documentary History of the German Revolution of 1918–1919 Translated by Gabriel Kuhn “The struggles of the German working class in the early 20th century are perhaps some of the most bitter and misunderstood in European history, and it is time they were paid more attention.” —Richard Parry, author, The Bonnot Gang Presenting English translations of manifestos, speeches, articles, and letters from the German Revolution, this is an informative look at early 20th-century Germany. After defeat in World War I and the end of the Kaiserreich, radicals across Germany rallied to a socialist slogan, “All Power to the Councils!” Many documents, such as the anarchist Erich Müsam’s comprehensive account of the Bavarian Council Republic, are made available in English for the first time. Also included are appendices portraying the Red Ruhr Army that repelled reactionary Kapp Putsch in 1920, and the communist bandits that roamed Eastern Germany until 1921.

An in-depth leftist history of the Portuguese revolution

The early history of uprisings and resistance in Korea

Portugal

Asia’s Unknown Uprisings Volume 1

The Impossible Revolution? Second edition Phil Mailer Afterword by Maurice Brinton “Mailer has handled masterfully the enormous cast of politicians, officers of the military peasant and workers councils, and a myriad of splinter parties, movements and caucuses.” —Choice This is the story of the political revolution in Portugal between April 25, 1974, and November 25, 1975, as seen and felt by a deeply committed participant. After the military coup in Portugal on April 25, 1974, the overthrow of almost 50 years of fascist rule, and the end of three colonial wars, there followed a year and a half of intense, democratic social transformation that challenged every aspect of Portuguese society. What started as a military coup turned into a profound attempt at social change from the bottom up and became headlines on a daily basis in the world media. This personal history depicts the hopes, the tremendous enthusiasm, boundless energy, total commitment, released power, and revolutionary innocence of thousands of ordinary people taking a hand in the remolding of their lives. It does so against the background of an economic and social reality that placed limits on what could be done. Phil Mailer is a political activist and the former editor of Combate. He lives in Lisbon, Portugal. Maurice Brinton was the pen name under which Chris Pallis wrote and translated for the British libertarian socialist group, Solidarity.

South Korean Social Movements in the 20th Century George Katsiaficas “A majestic account of political uprisings and social movements in Asia—an important contribution to the literature on both Asian studies and social change that is highly recommended reading for anyone concerned with these fields of interest. The work is well researched, clearly argued, and beautifully written, accessible to both academic and general readers. —Carl Boggs, author, The Crimes of Empire Using social movements as a prism to illuminate the oft-hidden history of 20th-century Korea, this book provides detailed analysis of major uprisings that have patterned the country’s politics and society. From the 1894 Tonghak uprising through the March 1, 1919, independence movement and anti-Japanese resistance, a direct line is traced to the popular opposition to U.S. division of Korea after World War II. The overthrow of Syngman Rhee in 1960, resistance to Park Chung-hee, the 1980 Gwangju Uprising, as well as student, labor, and feminist movements are all recounted with attention to their economic and political contexts. This is the first of two volumes that emphasizes the effects of grassroots political movements in different countries of Asia.

Compiled by Janice Stevens

This memoir marks the metaphorical journey from independent young woman to wife and mother frustrated with the limits of domestic life, then the literal journey from the Midwest to the west coast in pursuit of professional fulfillment. Though a product of her generation in many ways, bright, ambitious Jeanne Warren Lindsay found the independence she craved in college and envisioned a future as a New York magazine editor. Still, society’s expectations for women proved strong, and she traded her fantasy job for a picture-book marriage with picture-book kids. By the end of the 1950s, however, she feared she had evolved into a boring woman and needed to change. Only after moving her family to California and reinventing herself as a teacher and writer, did she finally find that previously elusive balance between domestic and professional satisfaction. Poignant and humorous, it provides nostalgic value, as well as a positive feminist message for modern women struggling with the often conflicting desires for family and career.

Perfectly blending a vast historical scope with intensely individual viewpoints, this stirring collection of stories brings a man-onthe-ground perspective to a huge range of military history, with stories of a quarter-century of war from nearly every corner of the earth, including Europe; the Pacific; mainland Asia; a tense confrontation in Guantanamo Bay during the Cuban Missile Crisis; POW camps in Germany, Japan, and California; and the San Joaquin Valley home front from the 1940s through the 1960s. These 72 highly individualized narratives of combat, military service, and the personal sacrifices of war—penned by ordinary San Joaquin Valley residents and buttressed with more than 100 personal photographs—bring commentaries from soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, nurses, ambulance drivers, and civilians. In simple, direct, and authentic language, with stories both horrific and touching, Stories of Service: Volume 2 perfectly illustrates the personal side of war.

Jeanne Warren Lindsay is the founder of Morning Glory Press and the author of 21 books for and about pregnant and parenting teens, as well as the memoir, Four Little Lindsays and How They Grew 1957–1959.

Provacative new theories that uncover coincidences, connections, and unexplained details of the JFK assassination

A Secret Order Investigating the High Strangeness and Synchronicity in the JFK Assassination H. P. Albarelli Jr. Reporting new and never-before-published information about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, this investigation dives straight into the deep end, and seeks to prove the CIA’s involvement in one of the most controversial topics in American history. Featuring intelligence gathered from CIA agents who reported their involvement in the assassination, the case is broken wide open while covering unexplored ground. Gritty details about the assassination are interlaced throughout, while primary and secondary players to the murder are revealed in the in-depth analysis. Although a tremendous amount has been written in the nearly five decades since the assassination, there has never been, until now, a publication to explore the aspects of the case that seemed to defy explanation or logic. H. P. Albarelli Jr. is an author and reporter who has written for Counterpunch, the Huffington Post, and Pravda. His 10-year investigation into the death of biochemist Dr. Frank Olson was featured on A&E’s Investigative Reports. He lives in Indian Beach, Florida.

Excerpt: Often overlooked in the chronology of Lee Harvey Oswald’s earthly years is that when he was 13 years old he lived in New York City for a period of a about eighteen months, in 1952–1954. Astute readers will recognize these as critical years in the development and operation of the CIA’s MK/ULTRA safe house in the city’s Greenwich Village operated by Federal Narcotics agent and CIA consultant George Hunter White. The first-floor safe house was located at the corner of Bedford and Barrow streets (the address was 81 Bedford Street). According to a 1978 CIA document, “an elusive Frenchman who was engaged in the import-export business” owned the two-story, brick apartment house, just a short walk away from one of White’s favorite watering holes, Chumley’s, perhaps a primary reason for its selection. The building that housed the safe house was torn down several decades ago. Chumley’s, with all its ambiance and ghosts, is still there today. Marguerite Oswald, with her son, Lee Harvey, moved to New York City from Texas in August 1952. For their first several weeks there, Lee and Marguerite lived in a small apartment, located at 325 East 92nd Street. The cramped unit was shared with Lee’s half-brother, John Edward Pic, his 18-year old wife, and their newborn child.

The truth behind the events of 9/11

Black 9/11 How Cutting-Edge Technology Was Used Against the American People on September 11, 2001 Mark H. Gaffney The weeks following the attacks of September 11, 2001, were traumatic for nearly every American, but for some, the answers they received from the media and the government to explain the horrific events was not satisfactory. Accusations of cover-ups, internal plots, and sabotage from within the ranks of the U.S. government were—and continue to be—not uncommon. But compelling evidence contrary to the accepted narrative has, for some skeptics, been lacking. This investigation into the events of that day reveals dark secrets about United States–sponsored terrorism. Taking highly complex technical and scientific information, and distilling it for the consumption of the lay person, this inquiry attempts to reveal the truth behind that infamous day. Mark H. Gaffney is an author, an environmentalist, and a peace activist. His essays have appeared in numerous publications, including Atlantis Rising Magazine. He lives in Chiloquin, Oregon.

The terror organizations and doomsday devices found in the James Bond series were not merely dreamt up by Fleming, but were inspired by the intelligence he gathered during World War II.

Judyth Vary was once a promising science student who dreamed of finding a cure for cancer; this exposé is her account of how she strayed from a path of mainstream scholarship at the University of Florida to a life of espionage in New Orleans with Lee Harvey Oswald. In her narrative she offers extensive documentation on how she came to be a cancer expert at such a young age, the personalities who urged her to relocate to New Orleans, and what led to her involvement in the development of a biological weapon that Oswald was to smuggle into Cuba to eliminate Fidel Castro. Details on what she knew of Kennedy’s impending assassination, her conversations with Oswald as late as two days before the killing, and her belief that Oswald was a deep-cover intelligence agent who was framed for an assassination he was actually trying to prevent, are also revealed.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 30,000 copies

Examining nearly every conspiracy theory in the public’s consciousness today, this investigation seeks to link seemingly unrelated theories through a cultural studies perspective. While looking at conspiracy theories that range from the moon landing and JFK’s assassination to the Oklahoma City bombing and Freemasonry, this reconstruction reveals newly discovered connections between wide swaths of events. Linking Dracula to George W. Bush, UFOs to strawberry ice cream, and Jesus Christ to robots from outer space, this is truly an all-original discussion of popular conspiracy theories.

The result of a two-year investigation, this study delves into the possible connection between international drug trafficking and the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The smoking gun is the very plane the 9/11 hijackers learned to fly—a plane that had previously been seized by the DEA with 43 pounds of heroin on board. This inquiry into possible collusion begins with the 2001 attacks, but ends with a deeper inspection of the American drug trade and asks questions such as Who is the American Pablo Escobar? Once drugs are safely harbored into the United States, who distributes them, and how? and Are free passes given with a wink and a nod?

The life story of one of the most unconventional politicians in recent history

Ron Paul Father of the Tea Party Bradley A. Porter Although much has been written about his unique brand of politics, very little has been told about the personal history of Ron Paul, the man that many credit with being the founder of the modern Tea Party. From his formative years spent in Pennsylvania and his early careers as an obstetrician and a U.S. Air Force flight surgeon to the 12 terms he has served in Congress, this comprehensive volume reveals all of the experiences that shaped Ron Paul into the politician he is today. Landmarks in his congressional career, such as his famously libertarian voting record and his consistent clashes with both Democrats and Republicans, are covered in detail, while more recent chapters chronicle Paul’s work with the Tea Party movement, describing its core concepts and how they stem from his ideals. Unapologetically fascinating, this account of his successes and failures demonstrates exactly what it took for Ron Paul to grab the spotlight in American politics. Bradley A. Porter is a blogger for the Crossed Pond, named one of the 10 best blogs for political coverage at the 2007 Weblog awards. He is a former director for the Free Assembly for Constitutional Thought. He lives in Pittsburgh. BIOGRAPHY/POLITICAL SCIENCE, 256 PAGES, 6 X 9 25 B & W PHOTOS TRADE PAPER, $19.95 (CAN $21.95)

Excerpt: Sitting in the greenroom at CNN in early 2007, Ron Paul waits patiently as his makeup is refreshed for another interview. Since forming an exploratory committee in January, getting TV time had been a challenge, and Paul had adopted a policy of not turning down a venue, no matter how hostile. The interview he had done that morning had played to a now-familiar script. Lacking any more material on Rudy Giuliani or Hillary Clinton, producers turn to the also-runs to fill airtime. Invariably, that entails introducing Paul, letting the viewers know what a longshot he is (always—always—his campaign is referred to as “quixotic”), and then segueing into a discussion of his “radical” views. This morning, the anchor immediately began reading from a list of Paul’s positions with a growing, theatrical air of disbelief. “You want to abolish the Department of Education? You would do away with the FDA? You want to end the War on Drugs? You want to return to the gold standard?” And, as with every interview, Paul has to patiently make his same core philosophical argument while the interviewer baits him and clearly delights in painting Paul as a crank.

“Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo is a cool force of nature whose example teaches how to stand down fear and victoriously stand up for what is right.” —Ralph Nader

No Fear A Whistleblower’s Triumph Over Corruption and Retaliation at the EPA Marsha Coleman-Adebayo Foreword by Noam Chomsky Afterword by Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy “Inside Marsha Coleman-Adebayo there’s a streak of Rosa Parks. Certainly, her decade-long struggle to clean up the racially toxic atmosphere at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could make history.” —Time magazine • Co-op available • Advertising in Black Agenda Report, Crisis, Hill, Mother Jones, and Nation Retracing the steps of the first civil rights and whistleblower act of the 21st century, this chronicle follows young, black, MIT-educated social scientist Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, shortly after she landed her dream job at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The account illustrates how the author attempted to convince the government to investigate allegations surrounding a multinational corporation, suspecting that they were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of South Africans who were mining vanadium—a vital strategic mineral. Documenting Coleman-Adebayo’s shocking discovery that the EPA itself was the first line of defense for the corporation in question, this record depicts how the agency stonewalled, prompting the author to expose them. The agency’s brutal retaliation is captured in detail, revealing their use of every racist and sexist trick in their playbook, costing the protagonist her career, endangering her family, and sacrificing more lives in the vanadium mines of South Africa. Finishing on a hopeful note, the recollection concludes with the upwelling of support the author received from others in the federal bureaucracy, detailing how her subsequent grassroots struggle to protect future whistleblowers ended in victory. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo is the founder and president of the No Fear Institute. She served as the executive secretary of the EPA’s Environment Working Group, working with their delegation to the Gore/Mbeki Binational Commission during the Clinton administration. She lives in New York City. Noam Chomsky is a worldrenowned linguist and social critic considered by many to be the world’s foremost intellectual. He is the author of 120 books.

Excerpt: I arrived at the conference room ahead of Franklin where the other members of our section, who were all white, were already seated around a table. On seeing me in the doorway, my supervisor, Alan Sielen, called out to me. “Come on in, Marsha. We’ll make you an honorary white man so you can join us.” Those around the table burst into laughter. I was stupefied. I felt humiliated. I felt belittled. I felt attacked and not a little angry. Having never been in a similar situation, I was at a complete loss as to an appropriate response to the rush of emotions washing over me—but I also knew that a strong response could be catastrophic to my career. This was the first time I had felt the powerful forces that rise up inside a person subjected to prejudicial ridicule. There were opposing urges to hide and to fight, and a tremendous desire to yell that I knew everyone who was laughing was well aware of how difficult it was for me. Worst of all, I was keenly aware of the fact that I had blinked in this first encounter with racism at EPA. They had no dogs. They had no hoses or guns. But with only a single chorus of laughter, I had caved. Then Franklin Moore walked in and was welcomed with the same greeting. Only this time, I was seated among them.

Excerpt: In the mid-eighties, upon my immigration to New York from Mexico City, one of the first things people asked me was, Where is your sombrero? They were referring to the typical Mexican sombrero mariachis use when they sing ranchera songs. The most common sombreros, the ones used by those musicians, are made of felt and are black with golden or silver decorations. The touristy versions are red, yellow, orange, blue, and other splashy colors. I’ve never owned a sombrero in my life. Nor have my family, friends, and acquaintances. That’s because we did not have the opportunity to socialize with mariachis. (How many Americans have cowboy friends?) In fact, I personally don’t know a single Mexican who has a sombrero.

Taking a stance for immigration, this personal meditation has universal repercussions by incorporating the voices of immigrants both past and present. As author Ilan Stavans says, immigration is always about the unexpected; it is a state of constant flux, where things are not what they appear to be. The author questions whether the American dream, its symbol of the Statue of Liberty, and the welcoming words of Emma Lazarus’s sonnet still hold true. At the core of this work is the question: If the line “Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teaming shore” is a contract on immigration that America has made with itself, to what extent has that contract been upheld? As America becomes increasingly multiethnic and multicultural, have we redefined and dismissed a founding principle and the 19th-century understanding of immigration? This is a challenging and unique argument for immigration from historical, political, and cultural perspectives. Ilan Stavans is a preeminent cultural critic, the author of The Hispanic Condition, the editor of The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature, and the coeditor of Growing Up Latino. He has contributed to publications ranging from Newsweek to small literary magazines and scholarly journals. He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Yet in New York I was constantly asked about my sombrero, I assume because a Mexican and a sombrero go hand in hand. Or head in hole. It satisfied no one when I answered that a sombrero for me was as foreign an item as it was for them. Actually, my response—I could see it in people’s faces—was annoying.

Gripping stories that contextualize the struggle against AIDS

Ashamed to Die Silence, Denial, and the AIDS Epidemic in the South Andrew J. Skerritt • Co-op available • Advertising in Booklist, Harper’s, Huffington Post, Mother Jones, and Poz By focusing on a small town in South Carolina, this study of the HIV/AIDS crisis in the South reveals the hard truths of an ongoing and complex issue. Skerritt contends that the United States has failed to adequately address the threat of HIV and AIDS in communities of color and that taboos about love, race, and sexuality—combined with Southern conservatism, white privilege, and black oppression— continue to create an unacceptable death toll. The heartbreak of America’s failure comes alive through case studies of individuals such as Carolyn, a wild child whose rebellion coincided with the advent of AIDS, and Nita, a young woman searching for love and trapped in an abusive relationship. The results are most visible at the town’s segregated burial ground where dozens of young black men and women who have died from AIDS are laid to rest. Not only a call to action and awareness, this is a true story of how persons of faith, enduring love, and limitless forgiveness can inspire others by serving as guides for poor communities facing a public health threat burdened with conflicting moral and social conventions. Andrew J. Skerritt is a journalist who has contributed to Asbury Park Press, the Charlotte Observer, Flavour Magazine, Rochester Democrat, Rock Hill Herald, The Root, St. Petersburg Times, and Tallahassee Democrat.

Excerpt: To those who knew her, Tracy was mourning her beloved Aunt Carolyn. But to those familiar with her condition, Tracy mourned not for the life just lost but for the road that lay ahead. She looked into the casket and saw her immediate future. She knelt beside the casket, her arms serving as a pillow for her head. Midway through the service as the men from Generations Funeral Home stepped forward to close the casket, Tracy tried to get one last glimpse of her aunt. Then as soon as the lid was closed, she screamed louder and longer, her voice trailing against the backdrop of the songs of praise. After they closed the casket she lay on it and wept. I had first met Tracy eighteen months before. As fate would have it, on Sunday December 3, 2000, her face graced the front page of the Rock Hill Herald. In the picture Rev. Patricia Ann Starr was talking to L. Z. Witherspoon, a young man from the neighborhood. In the background stood Tracy. She wore no makeup. Her lips were unpainted. Her face was pockmarked with acne. That day, she was playful, smiling and doting on her aunt. She was slim and healthy looking. The photograph had been taken a few days earlier on a Friday afternoon as they stood outside in the front of Tricia Ann’s house. The photograph was for a story about AIDS in their small town of Clover. Tricia Ann was the focus of the picture and the story. Tracy was supposed to be a prop, just another face in the group, unconnected to the big picture. What I didn’t know then was that Tracy was an untold part of the story. She had been diagnosed with the virus years before; her days were numbered.

The dramatic chronicle of an American journalist caught between President Bashar and U.S. Middle East policy

In the Lion’s Den An Eyewitness Account of Washington’s Battle with Syria Andrew Tabler • Co-op available A key player in the Middle East and the site of violent protests in 2011, Syria has long been a thorn in Washington’s side when it comes to forging peace or rolling back the influence of the Islamic republic of Iran. But only after the events of 9/11 and Damascus’s staunch opposition to the war in Iraq did the U.S. government begin an unannounced campaign to pressure President Bashar al-Assad’s regime to revamp its regional and domestic policies. The book vividly captures Tabler’s behind-the-scenes experiences and provides a firsthand look at 21st-century Syria and Washington’s attempts to craft a “New Middle East.” Examining the effects of the neoconservatives’ strategy and asking what went wrong and how Washington can achieve a new relationship with this pivotal Middle Eastern nation, this investigation provides a rare glimpse into U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.

Excerpt: It was March 9, 2006, the 43rd anniversary of the declaration of “emergency law” in Syria. For the second year in a row, members of the National Union of Students in Syria (NUSS) were busy beating up and chasing off the opposition figures staging a sit-in in front of the old Ministry of Justice—a stone’s throw away from the radio station where martial law was declared in 1963, the morning after the Ba’ath Party seized power in a military coup. Multiparty politics in Syria was suspended that day, all in the name of bringing to an end raging political instability that had plagued the country since independence in 1946.

Andrew Tabler is the Next Generation Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a former fellow of the Washingtonbased Institute of Current World Affairs, and a former consultant for the International Crisis Group. In 2003 he moved to Syria from Washington and cofounded the country’s first private-sector English-language magazine, Syria Today. His articles have appeared in the International Herald Tribune, the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Foreign Policy, and Foreign Affairs. He lives in Washington, DC.

A man with gray hair broke from the crowd of demonstrators, arms waving overhead. Scores of student-union protestors were on him like a swarm of bees, shouting “traitor” while beating him with wooden sticks adorned with Syrian flags. As I took a photo of the melee, my colleagues Hugh Macleod and Othaina Sahara sized up the situation, notebooks in hand. “Come on, let’s go talk to that guy!” Hugh said. Othaina and I looked at each other. Without saying a word, we understood that the worst thing that could happen to this brave man at that moment would be for two foreigners to ask him how he felt about being abused and beaten up. We probably knew the answer anyway.

IPG – FALL 2011

“A very courageous and illuminating book about women in the Arab world. It opens our eyes, destroys our prejudices, and is very entertaining.” —Mario Vargas Llosa, winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature

I Killed Scheherazade Confessions of an Angry Arab Woman Joumana Haddad “In this courageous book Joumana Haddad breaks down the taboo of the Silent Absent Arab Woman. Scheherazade has to die to be able to speak her true self, to tell her own story: that is, to become a human being.” —Elfriede Jelinek, winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Literature “Joumana Haddad cannot be intimidated. This book is a lesson of courage for all those who fight to go beyond their own limits and chains.” —Roberto Saviano, author, Gomorrah “Sometimes, a revolution erupts when one person says, ‘That—that is not me.’ Joumana Haddad is a revolutionary, this book is the manifesto. Read it or be left behind.” —Rabih Alameddine, author, The Hakawati and Koolaids: The Art of War • Co-op available • Author tour to include Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, DC For centuries the heroine of The Arabian Nights, Scheherazade, defined the Arab woman—until Joumana Haddad, an Arab woman herself, had had enough. Haddad angrily challenges prevalent notions of identity and womanhood in the Middle East in this intrepid exploration. While she finds the West’s dominant portrayal of Arab women appalling, she finds the image projected by many Middle Eastern women to be infuriating as well. She discusses her intellectual development and the liberating effect of literature on her life, and in the process she transcends religious and cultural perspectives. Ultimately she argues that every woman has not only the right but the duty to ignore social, political, and sexual expectations and be true to herself. Fiery and candid, this is a provocative exploration of what it means to be an Arab woman today that will enlighten and inform a new international feminism. For Haddad, Scheherazade is dead, and the time has come for Arab women to tell their own stories. Joumana Haddad is an award-winning poet, translator, magazine publisher, and journalist. The culture editor for Lebanon’s daily newspaper, she launched the Arab world’s first erotic cultural magazine, Jasad (Body), in 2008, making international headlines. Haddad lives in Beirut.

Excerpt: Although I’m a so-called Arab woman, I, and many other women like me, wear whatever we like to wear, go wherever we wish to go, and say whatever we want to say. Although I’m a so-called Arab woman, I, and many other women like me, are not veiled, subdued, illiterate, or oppressed, and we are certainly not submissive. Although I’m a so-called Arab woman, no man forbids me, or many other women like me, from driving a car, a motorcycle, a six-wheeler, or a plane, for that matter! Although I’m a so-called Arab woman, I, and many other women like me, attained high levels of education, have a very active professional life, and have an income higher than that of many Arab (and Western) men we know. Although I’m a so-called Arab woman, I, and many other women like me, do not live in a tent, do not ride camels, and do not know how to belly dance. (Don’t feel offended if you belong to the “enlightened camp”: some still have this image of us, despite the open, globalized world of the twenty-first century.) And, last but not least, although I’m a so-called Arab woman, I, and many other women like me, look a lot like . . . YOU!

“I have known two kinds of pain. The first, a stabbing between my legs, the second, reliving it to tell my story.” —Soraya Miré

The Girl with Three Legs A Memoir Soraya Miré Foreword by Eve Ensler • Co-op available • Advertising in Booklist, Bust, Harper’s, and IndieBound Advance Access • Amnesty International estimates that more than 130 million women worldwide have been affected by some form of FGM, with more than 3 million girls at risk of undergoing FGM every year Having experienced firsthand the horror of female genital mutilation (FGM), Soraya Miré reveals the personal violation and immense challenges she overcame. This book is at once an intimate revelation, a testament to the empowerment of women, and an indictment of the violent global oppression of women and girls. This forthright narrative recounts what it means to grow up female in a traditional Somali family, where girls’ and women’s basic human rights are violated on a daily basis. Forced into an arranged marriage to an abusive older cousin, Miré was also witness to the instability of Somalia’s political landscape—her father was a general in the military dictatorship of Siad Barre. In her journey to recover from the violence done to her, Miré realizes FGM is the ultimate child abuse, a ritual of mutilation handed down from mother to daughter and protected by the word “culture.” Soraya Miré is a human rights activist, a filmmaker, and a survivor of and spokesperson against the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM). She lives in Los Angeles. Eve Ensler is the author of The Vagina Monologues. She lives in New York City.

African women share stories and views on issues that affect their daily lives

I Dare to Say African Women Share Their Stories of Hope and Survival Edited by Hilda Twongyeirwe • Co-op available • Advertising in Booklist, Bust, Mother Jones, and Utne Reader Featuring the real-life experiences of contemporary African women who tell of atrocities, pain, motherhood, marriage, love, and courage in their daily life, this gripping collection brings greater awareness to a continuing struggle. Denied a voice by their own culture for centuries, these women speak out for the first time, sharing poignant tales of abuse and womanhood robbed, revealing their methods of survival, and divulging their dreams for themselves and their children. A girl describes hiding under a blanket from the Lord’s Resistance Army in search of child brides; a woman speaks of her family abuse and rejection followed by the deaths of her child and partner only to learn later that the father of her child was already married with eight children and had AIDS. Dramatic, sometimes heartbreaking, often inspiring, this is the first book to truly show what it means to be a 21st-century African woman. Hilda Twongyeirwe is an author, a poet, and an editor whose work has been featured in Beyond the Dance, Farming Ashes, Never Too Late, Tears of Hope, and A Woman’s Voice. She received a 2008 Certificate of Recognition from the National Book Trust of Uganda for her book Fina the Dancer. She is the coordinator of FEMRITE, Uganda Women Writers’ Association. She lives in Kampala, Uganda.

Dissenting soldiers speak out

About Face Military Resisters Turn Against War Edited by Buff Whitman-Bradley, Sarah Lazare, and Cynthia Whitman-Bradley “When new soldiers swear to support and defend the U.S. Constitution by following lawful orders, what are they to do when they are given unlawful orders? About Face provides raw examples of precisely what soldiers are doing who take their oath seriously.” —Dahr Jamail, author, The Will to Resist “During this time of war it is vital that every American take a moment to listen to the firsthand accounts of those who have served on the front lines and those who refuse to fight.” —Aaron Glantz, author, The War Comes Home “About Face gives us important insights into the consciences of women and men who volunteer for the military but find they cannot obey orders to fight in illegal wars. These are brave and loyal Americans who are willing to challenge the U.S. government and perhaps go to jail rather than betray their inner voices that say NO to these wars!” —Ann Wright, retired U.S. Army colonel and author, Dissent • Advertising in WIN (September) and Progressive (October) • Author tour to include Baltimore, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC (September) and Los Angeles, Oakland, and San Francisco (October) Veterans of recent conflicts describe their individual journeys from raw recruit to war resister in this collection of testimonials. Although it is not well publicized, the long tradition of refusing to fight unjust wars continues today within the American military. The stories in this book provide an intimate, honest look at the personal transformation of each of these young people and at the same time constitute a powerful argument against militarization and endless war. Also included are exclusive interviews with Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg addressing the U.S. wars in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan and the role civilian and GI resistance plays in bringing the troops home.

Excerpt: When we got back from Iraq, we went to a reintegration thing for like three weeks or something like that. And during that three weeks they sent us to a doctor and the doctor says, “Is there anything you guys want to talk about, whatever?” and 98% of the people say, “No. Fuck no. We’ve been in Iraq for 15 months, we don’t want to be cooped up in a shrink’s office rehashing everything that happened. We want to be going out partying, getting drunk, whatever.” So that’s what we did. And it wasn’t until about two months later that I started having nightmares, and I started getting really tense and nervous and anxious about everything. A car door slams too hard and I freak out. Driving down the road, even now—this is a year later, a year later—I still, driving down the road, finding myself looking on the sides of the road. I’m not just spacing out, I’m looking for things: tripwires, pressure plates, shit that’s not supposed to be there.

An open dialogue among activists

Truths Among Us Conversations on Building a New Culture Derrick Jensen “Derrick Jensen is a rare and original voice of sanity in a chaotic world. He has wisdom and wit, grace and style, and is a wonderful guide to a good life beautifully lived.” —Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States • Author’s previous books sold more than 100,000 copies • Part of the Flashpoint Press series, which includes Lives Less Valuable (9781604860450), Mischief in the Forest (9781604860818), and Resistance Against Empire (9781604860467) From acclaimed author Derrick Jensen comes a prescient, thoughtprovoking collection of interviews with 10 leading writers, philosophers, teachers, and activists who argue against society’s belief that corporations and governments know what is best for the future, instead choosing to help acknowledge the values we know in our hearts are right—and inspire within us the courage to act on them. Among those who share their wisdom here are acclaimed sociologist Stanley Aronowitz, who shows that science is but one lens for discovering knowledge; Luis Rodriguez, poet and peacemaker, who suggests embracing gang members as people instead of stereotypes; Judith Herman, who offers a deeper understanding of the psychology of abusers; Paul Stamets, who reveals the power of fungi that is often ignored; and writer Richard Drinnon, who reminds us that our spiritual paths need not be narrowed by the limiting mythologies of Western civilization. Reaching toward a common goal of harmony with the world surrounding us all, these diverse voices articulate different yet shared visions of activism. Excerpt from interview with Judith Herman: DJ: What is the relationship between atrocity and silence? JH: Atrocities are actions so horrifying they go beyond words. For people who witness or experience atrocities, there is a kind of silencing that comes from not knowing how to put these experiences into words. At the same time, atrocities are the crimes perpetrators most want to hide. This creates a powerful convergence of interest: No one wants to speak about them. No one wants to remember them. Everyone wants to pretend they didn’t happen. DJ: In Trauma and Recovery, you write, “In order to escape accountability the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting.” JH: This is something with which we are all familiar. It seems that the more extreme the crimes, the more dogged and determined the efforts to deny that the crimes happened. So we have, for example, almost a hundred years after the fact, an active and apparently state-sponsored effort on the part of the Turkish government to deny there was ever an Armenian genocide. We still have a whole industry of Holocaust denial.

The authoritative feminist perspective on the worker’s struggle

Sex, Race and Class—The Perspective of Winning A Selection of Writings 1952–2011

With insight into the human side of architecture, this critical assessment displays the shortcomings of modern urban planning as an acclaimed architect issues a passionate charge against the celebrities of the current architectural world: the “archistars.” He argues that architecture has lost its way and its true function, as the archistars mold cityscapes to build their brand with no regard for the public good. More than a diatribe against the trade, Franco La Cecla makes a call to rethink urban space and take the cities back from “casino capitalism” that has left a string of failed urban projects, such as the Sagrera of Barcelona and the expansion of Columbia University in New York City. Recounting his travels across the globe, La Cecla provides insights to aid in resisting the planners and to find the spirit of a place. These commentaries on the works of past and present masters of urban and landscape will take an important place in continued public discourse for years to come.

Selma James Foreword by Marcus Rediker Introduction by Nina López

Franco La Cecla is a renowned anthropologist and architect. In 2005 he founded Architecture Social Impact Assessment (ASIA), an agency that evaluates the social impact of architectural and city planning projects. He is currently in production with Radiotelevisione Italiana on a series based on Against Architecture.

Selma James is the founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign and helped launch the Global Women’s Strike. She is the author of numerous publications, including The Power of Women and the Subversion of Community, Strangers and Sisters, and Wageless of the World.

Branching off Marx’s theories of class struggle, this impressive collection of essays on workers’ rights as they pertains to women’s rights aims to educate and inform those interested in radical feminist labor theory. Arguing that class struggle manifests itself as the conflict between the reproduction and survival of the human race, the general theme of the collected essays leans left and warns of market exploitation, war, and ecological disaster. Spanning nearly six decades and compiling essays that have appeared in anthologies or are selections from Selma James’ books—some printed here for the first time—these selections preach equality in wages for men and women alike, especially in nontraditional work environments.

With a premise that the African American mind continues to deal with the impact of slavery on many levels, this proactive discussion analyzes the effect of such mental strain on black culture and proposes a model for creating more African American leaders and empowering African American communities. Dr. Taylor explores not only the history of slavery and the subsequent reparations in the United States but also the reparations that are still discernibly necessary, both financial and psychological. The traumatic impact of slavery on African Americans is examined in the fields of education, economics, family, history, and culture. In addition, this gripping book outlines ways in which a revitalization of African history and culture can help restore the African American psyche.

Combining research on the structure and fit of ready-made jeans with testing of different denims, this sewer’s guide reveals the latest way to customize simple steps for sensational pants. By using the tissue-fit method for making clothes, this DVD explains how to get a great fit from pants before even starting to sew. With special attention to several body types, including petite and full figure, this resource also covers fabric selection, pre-shrinking, thread, notions, and gathering other supplies. The DVD features the jean sewing process from start to finish and even explains details like pockets, zippers, yokes, flat-felled seam options, topstitching tricks, waistbands, belt loops, hems, rivets, and bias.

By avoiding the guessing game of matching fabrics to patterns, sewing mavens can create successful garments that are compatible with both the requirements of a pattern and the style of the wearer. Many topics central to choosing the proper material are included here, such as fiber content and construction, weight, drape considerations, wrinkle tendency, and finished garment care. Determining sewability includes more than design and interfacing, so this guide instructs sewers on the finer points of reading pattern envelopes, interpreting design guidelines, and knowing what five fabrics are easiest to sew. This DVD also includes a section on choosing flattering fabrics so clothes coordinate throughout a wardrobe.

A Guide to Practical Combat and Self-Defense Eric Oram Using a three-part perspective on the traditional art, this guide illustrates how wing chun kung fu is still deadly and effective in the context of modern combat. The first part addresses fundamentals such as the history, life benefits, concepts, principles, and basic training—including footwork, kicks, arm movements, and reflexes—that characterize the art. Bridging the gap between wing chun and other fighting styles, the second portion explains how a wing chun artist is able to exploit the vulnerabilities in defensive and offensive systems such as kickboxing, grappling, and karate. The third and final section discusses how this particular brand of kung fu is highly effective in street combat—both empty-handed and with weapons—as well as against single and multiple opponents. Eric Oram is one of the world’s leading authorities on wing chun kung fu, having taught the art for more than 25 years to law enforcement, professional athletes, celebrities, and the general public. He is one of the most senior disciples of Bruce Lee’s primary teacher, Grandmaster William Cheung. He supervised fight choreography on the motion pictures Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Sherlock Holmes and has written for or been featured in American Health and Fitness, Black Belt Magazine, Inside Kung Fu Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, Sports Illustrated, and Vanity Fair.

The inside story from the cop of the cage

Let’s Get It On! The Making of MMA and Its Ultimate Referee “Big” John McCarthy and Loretta Hunt Foreword by Bas Rutten • $40,000 marketing budget; co-op available • Advertising on www.sherdog.com (August); www.mmaweekly.com, www.strikeforce.com (September), and in Fight magazine (September) • Author tour to include Las Vegas (September, October) An intimate profile of the legendary mixed martial arts (MMA) referee, this first full-length autobiography of pop culture icon “Big” John McCarthy details every aspect of his life—from his strong-handed Los Angeles upbringing to his involvement in the naming of the sport, his role in its regulation, and MMA’s rise in stature. The narrative follows “Big” John through his 22-year career as a Los Angeles police officer, where he taught recruits arrest and control procedures as well as survival tactics, then his 15-year career as the MMA’s premier official in the chain-linked cage. A fixture of the sport, “Big” John started refereeing at UFC 2 in 1994 when the MMA was in its infancy and went on to officiate at every major UFC event but two until 2007. Following a one-year hiatus as a color commentator and on-camera analyst for MMA and boxing events, he returned to MMA refereeing in 2008. In his own words, “Big” John relates his insider’s perspective from the midst of many of the sport’s greatest moments— from Tito Ortiz–Ken Shamrock I at UFC 40 in 2002 to Randy Couture–Tim Sylvia at UFC 68 in March of 2007—along with his account of the birth of the sport in America, its evolution, and MMA’s ongoing struggles for acceptance. “Big” John McCarthy served as an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department for 22 years and is the world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) referee. McCarthy has officiated over 1,500 bouts worldwide since his debut at UFC 2 in 1994 and is one of the original authors of the sport’s rules and regulations in the United States. Loretta Hunt is a journalist who has penned more than 3,000 articles on all aspects of mixed martial arts since 2001. She has written for ESPN.com, SI.com, and the Los Angeles Times. She is the coauthor of the New York Times best seller Becoming the Natural: My Life In and Out of the Cage, the memoir of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture. Bas Rutten is a former MMA fighter known as El Guapo, an actor, an author, and a TV commentator.

Excerpt: “After winning the 1995 Yukon Jack Arm Wrestling Championship, I floated around for a while, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. One day, some buddies came over to my house with a tape of the second Ultimate Fighting Championship. I had never seen the UFC before, but I’d heard crazy stories about brutal fights where people would break bones and then keep on fighting. I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to do something like that; however, when I actually sat down and watched the tape, I loved the sport right away. I was amazed when I saw Remco Pardoel bash the hell out of Orlando Weit’s head. I was in awe at how Remco was able to almost crush another man’s skull with devastating elbow shots. Since I was a known as a tough guy, my friends who figured that I could do it, too. Soon, they were trying to convince me to fight in the UFC. Of course, I was with the guys and bravado meant I needed to act tough, so I said, “Yeah, I can do that. It looks easy.” As I was saying it, however, I was thinking there was no way I wanted any part of that kind of violence. The next thing I knew, a phone number plugging UFC merchandise popped up on the screen. Right away my friends decided to call the number, not expecting anyone to actually pick up the line. Surprisingly, someone did. ‘We don t want to buy anything . . . We’ve got somebody here who can fight!’” Sample interior images

Excerpt: “As my three-month stint in Wallingford neared its end, I kept thinking of the WWF building and what I’d given up. Was there a reason I had to pass that building every weekend? It like more than a coincidence. It almost seemed like destiny. That week I’d watched a film alone, something Jim had recommended to me — Glengarry Glen Ross, based on the play by the great David Mamet. In it, Al Pacino’s character reminds his co-workers of his philosophy on life: “When you die,” he says, “you’ll regret the things you didn’t do.” I started wondering if I’d made a mistake. I started thinking I might need to try wrestling again. One thing was certain: The next Friday evening when I passed that WWF building, I had to stop and look around. Call it curiosity or karma, but I felt like I needed to do it to survive. I got off the exit and pulled around to the front. It looked to be about eight or nine stories, made of black glass, with the huge yellow WWF logo near the top. That’s what caught your eye from the interstate. That WWF glowed to me, calling out like a siren.”

Reconciliation and hope in the face of tragedy

A Season of Loss, a Lifetime of Forgiveness The Dan Snyder and Dany Heatley Story John Manasso • Co-op available • New in paper; also available in cloth (9781550227024) Touching on family, forgiveness, sport, and making peace with tragedy, this narrative captures the lives of two unlikely friends from very different backgrounds. Dan Snyder was not a sure thing in professional hockey but defied expectations by playing for both the minor league’s Chicago Wolves and the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers. Dany Heatley, on the other hand, had been tapped for success from the start as a college star and high draft pick. In September of 2003, however, their lives were tragically altered when the then 22-year-old Heatley lost control of his speeding Ferrari and Snyder, who was thrown from the vehicle, died in a hospital six days later. The loss of their teammate, friend, and son sent those who knew Snyder looking for redemption or, in some cases, revenge. As the legal story unfolds, so too does a story of forgiveness, rooted in the Canadian Mennonite tradition from which Snyder hailed. Updated to include an afterword by the Snyder family, this story shows how the afflicted family, taking an approach to their loss dictated by their faith, chose to make peace with both Heatley and his parents. John Manasso has worked as a reporter in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, and was a contributor to the Hockey News. He is a freelance writer for NHL.com and covers the NHL, NBA, and NFL for an affiliate website of FoxSports.com. He lives in Decatur, Georgia.

Beginning with advice on understanding angles, controlling perspective, and becoming familiar with the tools necessary for capturing interiors, this guidebook then progresses onto explanations of various types of light, methods for manipulating them, and circumstances under which different lights should be utilized. Also included throughout the book are example shots of homes, businesses, and public spaces followed from start to finish, illustrating the challenges of the shoot, how these problems were solved, and any work that required editing after the shoot.

In stark contrast to the “fix everything in post production” approach dominating modern digital photography, this reference demonstrates a more purposeful approach to shooting each frame— carefully considering the subject’s focus and determining the best camera settings to achieve that objective. Beginning with basic controls that can have a profound effect on your images, such as shutter speed and aperture, it goes on to explore how these settings, along with white balance adjustment, can be used to draw out the artistic value inherent in a scene or subject. Rather than relying on a computer to “fix” images, Painting with a Lens provides the tools essential to becoming an artist with a camera.

Opening with a quick overview of the basics—such as exposure, focus, subject selection, and composition—the author then shows the techniques pros use to achieve truly stunning images. A major factor in advancing beyond the basic level of underwater photography is moving from a point-and-shoot or semi-adjustable camera to using a full-featured, digital SLR camera. The myriad equipment choices available when making this transition are explained, as are their respective advantages and shortcomings. Because both beginning and advanced underwater photographers can have equipmentrelated issues, a trouble-shooting section is included to ensure that minor equipment problems won’t ruin a costly dive trip.

Whether trying a new technique, getting in some practice time, or working on a finished piece, this figure study enables artists to create their choice of model, pose, and view whenever and wherever they’d like. The latest addition to the series will help artists become proficient in incorporating chiaroscuro or light and dark lighting—a technique used by the great masters to produce drama and depth in their paintings—to define the human form. The book incorporates a new layout featuring two primary views per pose as well as a section of close-up faces, while additional expressions and body details such as the face, hands, and feet are shown in even greater detail on the DVD-ROM. With the book, artists can study 95 poses in strong unidirectional lighting and observe the female form through more than 200 printed photos. Varieties of body types—ranging from thin to plus-size— and ethnicities are included. Poses have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. With this guide, artists can achieve longer drawing sessions than they could when drawing from a model directly. While viewing from many angles and at their own pace is often impossible for artists in a studio session, it becomes as easy as putting in the disc and opening any photo. A judicious amount of photo retouching is done—not to make the models more glamorous or plastic but to remove distractions that detract from the models’ essence. The PC/Mac-compatible DVD-ROM included in the book features more than 2,500 high-resolution JPEG photos providing a number of viewing options—on a computer screen, printed out, projected for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level of detail. Maureen Johnson is an art director and a management analyst. Douglas Johnson is a photographer and an engineer. They are the coauthors of the Art Models series. They live in Salem, New Hampshire.

Approaching the subject of pastoral landscapes with his typical verve, beloved instructor Terry Harrison guides beginning watercolor artists through five country scenes in this step-by-step project book. From a country estate beyond an open gate to a small church nestled among a bluebell wood, each scene is carefully selected to give new artists confidence and offer intermediate artists a handful of satisfying challenges. All projects are accompanied by pull-out tracing paper that easily transfers each scene onto watercolor paper—artists need only a soft graphite pencil and a rubbing tool to achieve the transfer—eliminating the need for prerequisite drawing abilities. Additional scenes include a snowy winter pasture and a small footbridge crossing a ford among autumn leaves.

Taking beginning artists and armchair travelers across the rocky, ancient landscape and blue waterways of the Mediterranean, this step-by-step watercolor tutorial includes five carefully selected scenes that evoke this beloved region of Europe, West Asia, and North Africa. Each project captures the stark heat and subtle beauty of the rich Mediterranean Basin with scenes that include a palm-fringed beach and a Tuscan farm, a domed Greek Orthodox church overlooking the blue sea, and a bicycle parked beneath bougainvillea on a sleepy, sunlit street. Author Geoff Kersey complements each original composition with reassuring advice and clear instructions that emphasize every detail.

At first, everything is picture perfect—from the beautiful lake behind the house to the rebirth of the friendship between Travis and his brother, Adam, who lives nearby. Travis also begins to overcome the darkness of his childhood and the guilt he’s harbored since his younger brother’s death—a tragic drowning veiled in mystery that has plagued Travis since he was 13. Soon, though, the new house begins to lose its allure. Strange noises wake Travis at night, and his dreams are plagued by ghosts. Barely glimpsed shapes flit through the darkened hallways, but strangest of all is the bizarre set of wooden stairs that rises cryptically out of the lake behind the house. Travis becomes drawn to the structure, but the more he investigates, the more he uncovers the house’s violent and tragic past, and the more he learns that some secrets cannot be buried forever.

Todd Grimson

Resurrecting a horrifying and romantic narrative that broke fresh ground for its genre, this newly rereleased novel sets a vampire story in contemporary Los Angeles—the pleasure dome of late 1990s sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll culture. Unlike the vampires that came before her, Justine does not shun crosses, she watches horror movies on television, and she sets upon her prey in an almost apologetic way, never killing her victims but leaving them unconscious instead. She soon finds herself entwined in a very human sexual relationship with Keith, a down-on-his-luck rock guitarist whose hands have recently been mangled by a gang of drug dealers. Justine nurtures Keith out of his depression and drug addiction as he in turn becomes her lover and accomplice in her nocturnal predations. The relationship between the undead and the living is realistically and tragically portrayed as Keith acts both as Justine’s enabler and unwitting nemesis and, in this classic role reversal, ends up having to destroy the one he loves in order to save her.

Excerpt: One thing I like best about science fiction, though I can’t always do it, is that you can write a story that makes comments on our world here and now. I think the best science fiction does that—gives us a new view on what our world is like right now. Often from an alien point of view. The best thing ever said about my writing was said by Jim Gunn. He said my stories “estranged the everyday.” I wish I could do that all the time. I started writing science fiction in the first place because I met my husband’s friends who were science fiction writers. Unlike in my college literature classes, they spoke of writing as if a normal human being could do it . . . maybe even me. They spoke of technical problems and solutions.

When Beau Delaney, the Halifax hotshot whose exploits are the subject of a new Hollywood film, is charged with the murder of his wife Peggy, it’s lawyer and bluesman Monty Collins who takes the case. But when Beau’s family dynamics and the appearance of a mysterious child alert Monty that his client is keeping secrets, others join in to help keep Beau from a life in prison. Monty’s pal, Father Brennan Burke, has a hand in the investigation, as does Monty’s estranged wife, Maura. Watching all this is Normie, Monty and Maura’s daughter, who has the gift of second sight. When she starts having visions that involve Beau, she can’t tell whether they reflect something he’s done in the past— or something he might do in the future. It then becomes clear that Normie and Monty must rely on each other to discover the truth about Peggy’s death.

A bar murder foreshadows grave events too close to home

Death at Christy Burke’s A Mystery Anne Emery • Co-op available When spray-painted graffiti appears on the wall of Christy Burke’s pub indicating that there’s a killer on the premises, his grandson, Father Brennan Burke, is asked to investigate the vandalism. Though not at all keen on probing into the lives of the bar’s clientele, he has little choice once a body is found on the property. Issuing orders from a cell in Mountjoy Prison, the pub’s current owner wants the problem solved without the police anywhere near his building. Assisted by his pal Monty Collins and fellow priest Michael O’Flaherty, Brennan begins to uncover dark secrets worth killing for in the lives of the pub regulars. In addition to the events surrounding the pub, Brennan’s murder investigation becomes overshadowed by ominous events in Belfast that may soon come home to roost in Dublin. Sinister figures are spotted in and around the pub, people are being followed in the street, and Brennan comes to possess explosive information that he cannot reveal to security forces. The situation compels him to take a hard look at Irish history and his family’s place in it, and he can’t shake the feeling that an act of violence in Northern Ireland is about to be avenged soon—and very close to home.

Excerpt: Clare could beat aces. It was the flush she was worried about. She studied the old man across from her. “What do you have? Aces?”

Also available in the Clare Vengel Undercover Novel series:

“Nah, I don’t got aces,” the old man said, meaning Maybe I do, maybe I don’t. Clare tried to find a clue on his face. Deep lines made his skin look more like leather than anything human. The eyes, of course, were blank. “Raise.” Clare shoved some chips in forcefully. What she meant was Please fold. “Re-raise you all in.” The man touched the rim of his cowboy hat. A real tell, or a fake one? And how was Clare supposed to single out a killer in a room full of professional bluffers? “Go home, kid,” the old man said, meaning, You’re out of your league in this card room. But Clare wasn’t going home. She wasn’t going anywhere until she’d proven she could do this job. “Do I threaten you?” she asked. The old man snorted and Clare thought she saw his nostrils flare. “Sure,” he said. “Kids like you threaten my game every day. You make it so profitable I get lazy and forget how to take on real competition.” Clare drummed her fingers on the black table felt. If she called the bet and lost, she’d be out of the game. She could already hear Sergeant Cloutier’s scorn as he pulled her off the case and sent her home to dreary beat work chasing graffiti artists and bicycle thieves in Toronto.

Excerpt: “Officers Warren and Armsman? 5106, 1100 for lunch. Good to have you back on the platoon, Jack.” Sergeant Johanson looked up from his parade sheet and gave Jack a brief smile. For the greyhaired, stoic supervisor, it was a gushing display of emotion. A few other people echoed the sergeant’s sentiments but briefly and quietly. The new staff sergeant did not take to unnecessary talking on parade. He glanced from his memo book at the unruly outburst but let it slide. Too busy with his freaking notes. The man actually took notes about parade. Jack had never seen a supervisor, of any rank, make an entry about parade other than to say when it started and maybe when it ended. And the staff had spent long enough inspecting everyone. Jack hadn’t been given such a thorough going-over since his days at the police college down in Aylmer. Greene had done a sock check to make sure everyone was wearing black socks. A freaking sock check! Several officers, including Jack—no grace period for the platoon’s new addition—had been cautioned about the length of their hair. Jack wouldn’t have been surprised if the old bastard had taken out a ruler to measure the gap between hairline and collar. Jack wondered when the basement room at 51 had last seen a stand-up parade. Its old, tired appearance certainly didn’t correspond with such formality. The once-white paint was a faded and dreary ivory. A feeble light grimed through the dirt-grey windows set high in one wall. The metal tables, in rows beneath the windows, were as battle weary and worn out as the assortment of salvaged chairs. No, formality did not belong here. Jack was surprised when the platoon was allowed to sit as Johanson read out the day’s assignments and alerts. Greene seemed like the kind of prick who would keep everyone standing.

“A fully controlled, tightly structured dramatic narrative of such artful intensity that it leads the reader on at almost every page.” —New York Times Book Review

Vida Marge Piercy “Very exciting. Marge Piercy’s characters are complex and very human.” —Margaret Atwood

Originally published in 1970, Marge Piercy’s second novel follows the lives of four teenagers in a near-future society as they rebel against a military draft and “the system.” The occupation of Franklin High School begins, and with it, the open rebellion of America’s youth against their channeled, unrewarding lives and the self-serving, plastic society that directs them. From the disillusionment and alienation of the young at the center of the revolt to their attempts to build a visionary new society, the nationwide following they gain, and the brutally complete repression that inevitably follows, this is a future fiction without a drop of fantasy. As driving, violent, and nuanced today as it was 40 years ago, this anniversary edition includes a new introduction by the author reflecting unapologetically on the novel and the times from which it emerged.

Originally published in 1979, this piece of revolutionary fiction is a bestselling author’s classic paean to the 1960s. At the center of the novel stands Vida Asch, who has lived underground for almost a decade. Back in the 1960s she was a political star of the exuberant antiwar movement—a red-haired beauty photographed for the pages of Life magazine—charismatic, passionate, and totally sure she would prevail. Now, a decade later, Vida is on the run, her star quality replaced by stubborn courage. As counterpoint to the underground 1970s, Marge Piercy tells the extraordinary tale of the optimistic era, the thousands of people who were members of Students Against the War, and of the handful who formed a fierce group called the Little Red Wagon. Piercy’s characters make vivid and comprehensible the desperation, the courage, and the blind rage of a time when action could appear to some to be a more rational choice than the vote.

Marge Piercy is the author of 17 novels, including the bestselling Braided Lives, Gone to Soldiers, and Woman on the Edge of Time; numerous volumes of poetry; and a critically acclaimed memoir, Sleeping with Cats. She is the recipient of four honorary doctorates and has been a key player in many of the major progressive political battles of our time. She lives in Wellfleet, Massachusetts.

Excerpt:

Also available in the Nathan Peake Novels series:

But Nathan’s practised eye was taking in other details of the map, most especially the batteries marked at the mouth of the Gulf and the depths within. These were shallow waters, even at high tide, and at low tide they would be mostly mud. But Warren had anticipated these problems and had the solutions to hand. “I am assured the batteries look more impressive on the chart than they are in reality. The guns are old and have not been fired in anger for many years. You should be able to silence them easily enough with your 18-pounders.” “But I cannot take the Unicorn into the Gulf, sir, not with her draught.”

“No, sir, and only a fool would suppose it. You will command a fleet of smaller vessels that are being assembled as we speak, with as many seamen and marines as I can spare for the enterprise. And you may, of course, avail yourself of your own marines and crew. That is,” he raised a mocking brow, “if you have no objection to the commission.” Nathan ran his eye once more across the chart. A labyrinth of small islands, mud banks and creeks, beset by perverse currents and washed by wayward tides. And no clear idea of what force the enemy could muster against him or of what help to expect from the Chouans, if any. He inclined his head in a polite bow. “No objection at all, sir. Indeed, I thank you for giving me the honour.” “My pleasure, Captain,” replied the commodore, with a smile.

Discover the roots of modern poetry

Last Verses Jules Laforgue Translated by Donald Revell • Co-op available • Translator tour to include Boston, New York City, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco • Advertising in American Book Review, American Poet, American Poetry Review, Poetry Flash, Poets & Writers Magazine, and Rain Taxi Setting a precedent that has not been surpassed in more than a century, this full-length collection from a classic French symbolist poet explores an innovative, organic form of free verse. Juxtaposing common objects with romantic ideals, this final work—penned by a dying man—abandons the literary conventions of the era, and instead utilizes experimental rhythmic patterns, psychological realism, and impressionistic language. Honest, shocking, and enthralling, Laforgue projects his ideas into uncharted territories of spiritual realms, sexual extremity, and the purity of despair. This intricate work is made accessible to modern readers through the elegant translation that captures the spirit of the original, while the original French is still available on facing pages. Jules Laforgue was an innovative French poet—part symbolist and part impressionist—who was an important influence on the young T. S. Eliot. He authored many works, including L’Imitation de Notre Dame de la Lune and Moralités légendaires, though several were not published until after his death in 1887. Donald Revell is a poet, an essayist, a translator, and a professor, as well as the director of creative writing at the University of Nevada–Las Vegas. He is the author of more than 10 books, including The Bitter Withy and A Thief of Strings, and he is the poetry editor of Colorado Review. He lives in Las Vegas.

Challenging the cultural predicament through pentameter

The Odicy Cyrus Console “Some of the most distinguished prose poetry written so far in the United States.” —Michel Delville, author, Sentence: A Journal of Prose Poetics, on Brief Under Water • Co-op available • Author tour to include Austin, Texas; New York City; Portland, Oregon; San Francisco; and Seattle • Advertising in American Book Review, American Poet, American Poetry Review, Poetry Flash, Poets & Writers Magazine, and Rain Taxi Insightful, biting, and masterfully crafted, this collection of poems seeks to assess the pressing ecological, spiritual, and political crises of the modern era. Tracking the mysterious central and repeating character named Tony, elegant verse combines with the end-time rhetoric of contemporary fundamentalism. In a canonical meter, meditations are offered on the rise of fountain drinks and the use of artificial color as a means to investigate humanity’s social fabric. Richly blending cutting social criticism with poetic lyricism, Cyrus Console comes to terms with the social continua on which sugar substitutes are manufactured by pharmaceutical giants and weaponized defoliants evolve into bestselling agrichemicals—all while breaking new ground on the role of poetry in an industrialized society. Cyrus Console is the author of Brief Under Water. He teaches at the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Kansas. He lives in Lawrence, Kansas.

“Part lyrical investigation, part investigative evocation, always insightful and original, Elizabeth Robinson’s Three Novels is a poetic journey into the prose delectations of the ever-wonderful Wilkie Collins and George Gissing. . . .

Masterfully weaving intricate ideas into poetic phrase, issues surrounding the reality of truth and the stories used to construct lives are introduced. Offering observations around the wily female body that is resistant to ownership, meaningful questions are posed, such as Who owns this body? and What is the empowering eros of her role? Original and intriguing, these contemporary verses expose hidden paths and plot twists that challenge readers to take stock of their own lives.

Excerpt: I’m standing beside a filing cabinet. To my right is the actor Charles Cioffi, and to his right is Ken Camroux, the actor playing the Senior FBI Agent, the part I read for and didn’t get. I got this weird part with no lines. All I do is smoke. On the other side of the desk is a young unknown actress with red hair. We are doing a low budget pilot for an obscure science fiction show about alien abduction, if you can believe it. Well, a gig is a gig. I’m getting paid. Scale, I think. I’m feeling pretty dumb, just standing there like a statue listening to the red-haired actress talk about someone called “Spooky Mulder.” I look at the cabinet beside me, the top just below my shoulder. I think, ‘If this were really me would I stand here as if I were part of the scenery?’ which of course I was. What’s to lose, I think. So I stretch my elbow across the top of the cabinet, cross my feet, and watch the action from this new position, a praying mantis with a cigarette. An icon was born. You can buy the trading card if you want. At that moment my career went up in smoke. Well, perhaps it had been smouldering for some time. Once a boy wonder, I had failed in my major ambition. I was not the Artistic Director of the Stratford Festival at the age of twenty-nine, unlike my idol, Peter Hall, who headed the Royal Shakespeare Company in the UK at that age. Still, always torn between directing and teaching, I was getting along, making a good living, until that fateful day when everything changed.

Excerpt: The Smiley Face It started in 1958. New York City radio station WMCA inadvertently forecast what would become the definitive icon of the 1970s: the smiley face. The station ran a contest for the most popular radio show at the time, Cousin Brucie. Any listener who answered their phone by saying “WMCA Good Guys!” received a “Good Guys!” sweatshirt that featured a smiley face in its design. Then there was art director Harvey Ball who, in 1963, created a similar design for State Mutual Life Assurance, a Worcester, Massachusetts insurance firm. The bright yellow circle with the black eyes and mouth was part of the company’s “Friendship” campaign, whereby State Mutual handed out 100 smiley face pins to employees. The concept was to get employees to smile while using the phone and doing other tasks (a merger had put a crimp in company morale). The idea, which reportedly took Ball just ten minutes to create, caught fire. However, he never applied for a trademark or copyright of the smiley face and earned just $45 for his work. Ball, who died in 2001, is remembered for the idea near where he lived in Massachusetts; part of the land where he lived is called the Harvey Ball Conservation Area, and it’s here that you’ll find the Smiley Face Trail. So just how did the Smiley Face become the symbol of the 70s? In September 1970, two enterprising brothers, Murray and Bernard Spain, had an idea. They were in the business of making faddish items, so they drew up a smiley face and added the words “Have a nice day.” Next, they copyrighted both the smiley face image and the accompanying slogan—and the rest is pop culture history. Soon they were cranking out buttons, t-shirts, coffee mugs, posters, greeting cards, earrings, bracelets, key chains, and more trash and trinkets that you could shake a mood ring at. The craze lasted about a year and half, and then it was over. The smiley face left almost as quickly as it had arrived, leaving behind a dull sense of bland positive energy—and about 50 million buttons.

The Fab Four’s formative years in the heart of Germany

The Beatles in Hamburg The Stories, the Scene and How It All Began Spencer Leigh “As a native Liverpudlian who discovered rock ’n’ roll at the same time as the Fabs, Leigh can write about the city and its music scene with an authority other authors lack.” —Gillian Gaar, Goldmine, on Twist and Shout! “Essential for anyone fascinated with what made Britain tick before the Beatles.” —Mojo on The Cavern “An unsentimental, unpretentious account of Buddy’s life. . . . Everyday smashes through the smoke and mirrors to give an animated, informative, and refreshingly candid portrait of the rock ‘n’ roll legend and his enduring legacy. A truly exhaustive account of how the music was born and why it never died.” —Record Collector on Everyday • Co-op available • Advertising in Goldmine magazine Paying tribute to the city that helped cast the spotlight on a legendary band, this rock biography travels back in time to the summer of 1960, when the Beatles left Liverpool for Hamburg. The account follows their evolution from little more than enthusiastic amateurs to the seasoned professionals they became after playing the German metropolis, landing their first recording contract, and attracting Brian Epstein’s interest with their single, “My Bonnie.” Documenting how the St. Pauli area molded the Fab Four’s musicianship and stage act, this recollection also reveals how Hamburg lent a hand in fashioning their image, illustrating how their trademark collarless jackets and mop-top haircuts were cultivated in the late-night clubs of the infamous, neon-lit district. The atmosphere of the remarkable German city is evoked, capturing the nascent cultural revolution that was to explode into the “Swinging Sixties.” Containing exclusive interviews with musicians, club managers, and audience members as well as fans, friends, and family, this definitive account also features rare photographs and archive memorabilia, reflecting on the crucial early years of the world’s most influential rock ’n’ roll band—and of the city that catapulted them into international stardom. Spencer Leigh was born in Liverpool, the birthplace of the Beatles. His program, “On the Beat,” has been broadcast on BBC Radio Merseyside for more than 25 years, and he has contributed to several BBC music documentaries. He is the author of The Cavern: The Most Famous Club in the World, Everyday: Getting Closer to Buddy Holly, Tomorrow Never Knows: The Beatles on Record, and The Walrus Was Ringo: 101 Beatles Myths Debunked.

Integrating psychology and sports to empower those with autism

Riding on the Autism Spectrum The Miracle of Equine-Assisted Therapy Claudine Pelletier-Milet Foreword by Catherine Mathelin-Vanier Taking on a group of developmental disorders whose prevalence rate is increasing each year, the ideas in this book show those with autism to gradually open up within a joyful and relaxed atmosphere. The study draws from a strong knowledge base of equine training, child psychoanalysis, and clinical psychology, contending that certain animals—specifically horses—have a way of communicating with individuals on the autism spectrum. The process of learning to ride is presented as a unique educational system, inviting the autistic individual to discover new sensations, gain a sense of independence, and learn to control their emotions and fears. Addressing the emotional needs of family and friends of those with autism, this emboldening guide encourages those on the spectrum to look up, speak out, and become stronger in mind and spirit. Claudine Pelletier-Milet is a horseback riding instructor and an educator who specializes in equitherapeutic riding for toddlers. She runs the equestrian center of the stud-Mairin Berdrix La Chapelle-Montligeon in Perche, France. Catherine MathelinVanier is a psychoanalyst who specializes in early childhood. She is a doctor of psychology and a research associate at the Center for Psychoanalysis and Medicine at the University of Paris 7-Diderot.

Excerpt: Autistic children are hypersensitive and interpret anything unfamiliar as intrusive. As they become more confident however, they gradually learn to accept new surroundings and challenges, but if this process is in any way violent or more than they can take, they regress into repetitive movements and “self-stimulation” in order to assure themselves of their existence. The riding ring is an enclosed space with clearly defined limits in which the horses provide something that is entirely stable, unthreatening and composed of pleasant rituals which help to achieve this difficult transition. The riding activities begin with smells and contact, subsequently taking on visual and auditory impressions. As soon as I think the moment is right, I talk about what is happening and put into words what I think is going on in their minds. We take stock together of the place we are in, the objects that are scattered about and the actions we perform. We notice the noises that surround us: for instance we hear a pony neighing and we look at it together; a tractor passes by with a load of hay for the horses so we follow it with our eyes – and our ears. We might even remark on the smell of the exhaust. The familiarity and confidence inspired by sitting securely in the saddle on a well-trained pony or horse is another fundamental element in providing the autistic child with a feeling of security that is so strong that he can open his defenses against the “outside” world. I think that the normal reaction of an autistic child to the world around him is a primitive one of self-preservation and that the quality of this instinct is close to that of horses. This is perhaps the reason that communication is so easily forged between the child and the pony. The pony understands and absorbs the child’s anxiety; the child responds by adopting very quickly a good seat and showing the pony that he at ease. I find this is a spontaneous form of communication that takes place without any verbal instruction and quickly extends the autistic child’s area that he so jealously protects, to include the pony. People with autism are reluctant to relinquish their area of security, so each stage in their progress has to be lived through with patience. The horse or pony with its endless patience and understanding is the perfect ally.

Spiritual Hunger Integrating Myth and Ritual into Daily Life Dr. Allan Hunter “Allan Hunter gets to the heart of personal transformation in this timely and groundbreaking guide to personal authenticity and living a life in accord with the energies of the universe.” —Julie Clayton, New Consciousness Review • Co-op available From daily activities such as work and eating to milestones such as graduation and marriage, this discussion debates the myths that guide lifestyles and questions why they exist in the first place.

Excerpt: Every human situation you live through is unique to your life, but every human action has been seen before in its general outlines. If we make the mistake of thinking our experience is unique, then we cannot learn from what others have seen and done before us. But if we accept that our life path is one others have been on, then we can ask literature, myth and ritual for guidance, since that is exactly why these stories were written down. They were created to let us know that we are not alone, that others have been this way before… This movement toward a better society, however, is under threat because the very understandings that allowed for growing cohesion have been eroded recently. They’ve been undercut by those who cannot see any value in belonging to a society of more than one. Their lives are just for them; there is no sense of the mythic richness of being alive. They have no “story” to connect them to their culture, and so they have no sense of ritual; they have no awareness of history, merely of isolated occurrences. If events are simply random, if other people are just objects to be networked with, then how can the person have any higher levels of awareness? These people cannot find any deep significance in their lives, so they grab what they can of the material world and of physical gratification. This is the saddest aspect of modern isolation. The consciousness that we are living a mythic life, where right and wrong actions have significance, and where we are all linked, is the best response to this mindset. We can choose to see ourselves as part of a meaningful whole, where our actions matter. In the process, we grow our courage to live well.

Wendy Kelly, MEd, is an animal behaviorist, a former psychological therapist, the owner of Pet Peeves Animal Training, Inc., and the founder of the Pawsitive Life Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to rescue and train dogs to detect early stages of cancer in humans.

How Everyday Movement Will Extend Your Life, and Exercise Alone Won’t Joan Vernikos, PhD • Co-op available This groundbreaking study demonstrates how the prevalent problems of obesity, ailing health, and lack of energy can all be easily improved simply by using the power of gravity. The survey is based on the author’s research into how weightlessness weakens astronauts’ muscles, bones, and overall well-being, suggesting ways to incorporate gravity into everyday life and illustrating how it can increase fitness as well as prevent aging. Addressing those who spend more than half their lives sitting and therefore struggle to benefit from even the most strenuous gym workouts, this practical, easy-to-follow action plan outlines simple gravityresisting activities such as standing, walking, and dancing, guaranteed to produce better results than diet and exercise plans.

And Other Gruesome Medical Tales

• $30,000 marketing budget; co-op available • Advertising in Lilipoh, Shambhala Sun, Spirituality and Health, and Tricycle • Previous edition sold more than 2 million copies

Rob Myers, MD

Written by one of Europe’s most experienced and renowned fasting doctors, this step-by-step reference provides daily guidance to complete a seven-day fast. The guidebook addresses a myriad of topics associated with fasting, including its history, common and successful forms, losing weight, overcoming temptations, and recipes for reintroducing food into the body. Additional topics relating to health and safety—such as keeping hydrated, staying warm, promoting circulation, and optimally preparing the body for a fast—are discussed at length.

At times humorous and at times terrifying, these unusual case studies of seemingly unbelievable injuries and illnesses have one thing in common: they are all entirely true. Dr. Rob Myers’ firsthand medical knowledge allows him to see past thin excuses to uncover the outrageously dangerous conditions that people have gotten themselves into. Pool balls and uncooked spaghetti are removed from locations where they never should have been placed, a drunken crew of neighbors tries to use a lawnmower to trim their hedges with disastrous results, and a high school football player gets into a fight with a vending machine that stole his dollar—no scenario is too strange to appear in this volume of medical maladies.

Hellmut Luetzner, MD, is a doctor who specializes in internal medicine with a focus on fasting. In 1975, he developed the fasting clinic in Germany, which he still heads today. He is the author of Successful Fasting: The Easy Way to Cleanse Your Body of Its Poisons.

A baseball team and its fans in their heyday

High-Fives, Pennant Drives, and Fernandomania A Fan’s History of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Glory Years (1977–1981) Paul Haddad • Co-op available • The Dodgers are planning a massive, year-long marketing campaign to celebrate Dodger Stadium’s 50th anniversary in 2012 For scores of Dodger fans, the years 1977 to 1981 mark the team’s glory days, and this sports compendium chronicles the highlights and disappointments that marked those four tumultuous seasons. Told from lifelong fan Paul Haddad’s perspective, the story of the Dodgers during this time period is enhanced by transcripts of radio and TV calls that are woven into the personal recollections, capturing famed Dodgers sportscaster Vin Scully at the top of his game. From Jerry Ruess’s no-hitter and Rick Monday’s epic homer against Montreal to the magical rookie year of Fernando Valenzuela and the 1981 World Series, all of the great Dodger moments are commemorated in great detail. In addition to its portion of the chronological narrative, each chapter contains lists, trivia, sidebars, and interesting statistics that make the exciting culture and fan frenzy that surrounded the Dodgers’ last great dynasty come to life. Paul Haddad is a television writer and producer who has worked with Discovery Networks, Fox Sports, the Travel Channel, and VH1, among others.

Weaving the story of the King’s personal and public life with detailed descriptions of the locations in Memphis that served as the setting for his musical education and evolution, this pop culture guide offers a refreshingly even-handed account of Elvis Presley’s life. Elvis came to Memphis as a 13-year-old boy, and within a few years, he was shocking and seducing the world with a mixture of moves and sounds he had first seen and heard in the city’s streets, churches, and bars. This comprehensive tour of places on which Elvis left his mark includes the Peabody Hotel, where he had his senior prom; Ellis Auditorium, where he played his first show; the Sun Studio, where he recorded his first singles; Lansky Brothers Clothiers, where he bought his suits; and Graceland, where he lived with his wife Priscilla and died in 1977. Anecdotes about each of the locations and how they shaped Elvis’s personal and musical identity enhance the travel information, while street maps and a handy size make this book an invaluable companion to Memphis visitors and lovers of rock and roll. Mark Bernardo is the former editor of Smoke magazine and has contributed to Overtime, Robb Report, Stratos, Stuff, and Trump World. He is the author of Mad Men’s Manhattan: The Insider’s Guide. He lives in Cold Spring, New York.

Bill Redekop

A Historical Salute to Those on the Frontline

Arthur Montague

From the slow-motion collapse of a trapezoid farm building to the discovery of a rusted vintage car on the edge of a field, the sights and stories chronicled in this provincial travelogue convey the idiosyncrasy of daily life in Manitoba. When Bill Redekop was offered the position of rural reporter with the Winnipeg Free Press, he was hesitant until his editor gave him one rule: if his editor ever saw him in the office, he would kick Redekop out. So the reporter took to exploring the far corners of Manitoba and recounting his experiences in a weekly column. This book is a collection of those columns, bearing witness to the incredible diversity of the region’s landscape, and characterizing the people of the area, who give life to Redekop’s columns just as they give life to the sprawling farm fields and freshwater lakes.

An unabashed appreciation of Canada’s military from early French Canada to current action in Afghanistan, this detailed history has a range that is unprecedented for a single volume. Canadian Forces: A Historical Salute to Those on the Frontline chronicles the humble heroism and often unacknowledged bravery that are part of every Canadian soldier’s story, whether it be the Canadian who won a Victoria Cross during the Charge of the Light Brigade or the members of the Devil’s Brigade—the first Special Forces Unit that fought during World War II. Their military defeats and conquests are described not only through the actual events but also through the personalities, from the generals, admirals, and privates to the medical personnel and the much-loved military cooks. Both entertaining and educational, this book captures the tragedy and comedy that are part of daily life in the Canadian military and recounts the role of military forces in shaping Canada into a distinct, proud nation.

Bill Redekop has been the rural reporter for the Winnipeg Free Press for the past 10 years, writing a column called “Open Road.” He is the author of Crimes of the Century: Manitoba’s Most Notorious True Crimes and Crime Stories: More of Manitoba’s Most Famous True Crimes.

Fox goes far and wide in her hunt for best BYOBs in town and finds everything from classic French fare on the Main to Mauritian delights in Verdun, and saves the rest of us much legwork in the process.” —Bill Brownstein, Montreal Gazette Whether on a grand terrace, in a patio garden, on a rooftop, or at a simple sidewalk table, this unique guide proves that Montrealers love eating and relaxing al fresco.

Documenting the development of Montreal’s Jewish community from the 1880s until 1945, this investigation meticulously draws from historic city maps and directories, authentic photographs, brittle newspaper articles, and long-forgotten anniversary publications to track the locations of the city’s early synagogues. The result is a fascinating story that describes and defines the social, religious, and economic aspects of a distinct group of people through the architectural traces of its culture. The decades surrounding the turn of the 20th century are explored, chronicling the Eastern European Jews’ mass migration as they fled poverty and persecution, escaping into the refuge of the famed Canadian city. Depicting the people’s determination to retain their familiar traditions and familial connections, this record shows how their beautiful places of worship also became havens where they could meet, exchange concerns, lend support, and resolve to help those left behind. Sara Ferdman Tauben has been an active leader in the Montreal Jewish community for 30 years. She holds a master’s degree in Judaic studies and is a former interior designer.

Environmental policy meets goal scoring

Climate Change for Football Fans

A straight-talking discussion of what people can do to reduce their carbon footprints

A Matter of Life and Death

Energy and Carbon Emissions: The Way We Live Today

James Atkins

Nicola Terry

“Football supporters will never see the world in the same way after reading this book.” —Professor David J. C. MacKay, author, Sustainable Energy—Without the Hot Air

Offering guidance on calculating individual carbon emissions and determining the impact of the changes that can be made, this collection of facts and figures about energy use in the United Kingdom emphasizes the consequences of domestic consumption and personal lifestyle choices. This book avoids political and ethical discussion and does not have a perfect solution to the energy problem; instead, it provides the information needed to evaluate not only how to reduce the carbon footprint, but also how to save money by lowering the cost of energy bills. Straightforward answers are provided to questions such as How much carbon will I save if I stop eating meat? Should I scrap my old car and buy a new one? and How much energy do I use each day making tea? Tables and charts showing average consumption and emissions, renewable-energy potential, historical trends, and international context display the data in different lights to present a well-rounded picture of the current state of the energy problem.

“Even those flawed souls who find climate change more engaging than football will enjoy this quirky take on how to save the planet.” —Siobhán Parkinson, author and Ireland’s Laureate for Children’s Literature By introducing the parallel of the world’s favorite sport, this exploration of climate change policy steers clear of the scientific jargon and data that populate most books on the issue. Written as a series of conversations between Joe, a soccer fan who thinks that worrying about climate change is a waste of time, and Professor Igor, a climate change scholar who does not understand the intricacies of soccer, this book provides accessible and entertaining insight into environmental issues through their dialogue. Topics that they discuss include the political obstacles to solving the energy problem and the ways that lifestyle choices of individuals affect the world around them. Positing that at this point the way out of the climate change dilemma is just as much social as it is technological and political, Atkins’ enjoyable treatise is manageable for those who have no prior knowledge on the subject yet is still compelling to those who are already well informed. James Atkins is chairman of Vertis Environmental Finance, an emissions trading company, and blogs about environmental issues.
