"It is frightening to think the [Jon Wiener] teaches history at a university ... "—Jacques Derrida "Wiener takes the modern university as his beat, and covers it like a police reporter ... Wiener's mean streets are the think tank, the scholarly symposium, and the faculty lounge. And when he's had enough of this academic low life, he listens to Elvis, Springsteen and the Beatles. He even listens to Frank Sinatra."—John Leonard "In this book, Jon Wiener demonstrates his great skill as guerrilla sharpshooter in the forty-year war that the National Security State has been conducting against the American people. These reports from the field—the resistance—illuminate Nixon and Watergate as never before, reveal in fascinating detail the turbulence within Academe, invoke pity if not awe for that unexpected victim of state, Frank Sinatra."—Gore Vidal "Wiener is good at spotting, and blasting, paranoid fantasy and incompetence in high (and low) places and his range of targets is impressively wide ... [his] surveys are lucid, trenchant and brief."—Observer

No other word in the English language is more endemic to contemporary Black American culture and identity than "Soul". Since the 1960s Soul has been frequently used to market and sell music, food, and fashion. However, Soul also refers to a pervasive belief in the capacity of the Black body/spirit to endure the most trying of times in an ongoing struggle for freedom and equality. While some attention has been given to various genre manifestations of Soul-as in Soul music and food-no book has yet fully explored the discursive terrain signified by the term. In this broad-ranging, free-spirited book, a diverse group of writers, artists, and scholars reflect on the ubiquitous but elusive concept of Soul. Topics include: politics and fashion, Blaxploitation films, language, literature, dance, James Brown, and Schoolhouse Rock. Among the contributors are Angela Davis, Manning Marable, Paul Gilroy, Lyle Ashton Harris, Michelle Wallace, Ishmael Reed, Greg Tate, Manthia Diawara, and dream hampton.

Here, from a brilliant young writer, is a paradigm-shifting history of both a utopian concept and global movement—the idea of the Third World. The Darker Nations traces the intellectual origins and the political history of the twentieth century attempt to knit together the world’s impoverished countries in opposition to the United States and Soviet spheres of influence in the decades following World War II. Spanning every continent of the global South, Vijay Prashad’s fascinating narrative takes us from the birth of postcolonial nations after World War II to the downfall and corruption of nationalist regimes. A breakthrough book of cutting-edge scholarship, it includes vivid portraits of Third World giants like India’s Nehru, Egypt’s Nasser, and Indonesia’s Sukarno—as well as scores of extraordinary but now-forgotten intellectuals, artists, and freedom fighters. The Darker Nations restores to memory the vibrant though flawed idea of the Third World, whose demise, Prashad ultimately argues, has produced a much impoverished international political arena.

Der Kultroman von Nick HornbyDer 35-jährige Robert Fleming ist Besitzer eines mehr schlecht als recht laufenden Plattenladens und soeben von seiner beruflich erfolgreichen Freundin Laura wegen seiner Antriebs- und Orientierungslosigkeit verlassen worden – weil er sich weigert, erwachsen zu werden. Rob hat grundsätzlich Probleme mit Veränderungen, in seinem Geschäft werden ausschließlich Schallplatten aus Vinyl verkauft, neumodische CDs kommen nicht infrage. In seinem Leben dreht sich alles um Popmusik. Wer nicht mindestens 500 Schallplatten besitzt, dem verweigert er jeglichen Respekt. Nach Lauras Auszug sucht er erst einmal Trost darin, seine Plattensammlung neu zu sortieren, und zwar nicht chronologisch, nicht alphabetisch, sondern autobiografisch. Rob unternimmt den Versuch, sein Leben zu bilanzieren, und geht der Frage nach, warum seine Beziehungen immer scheitern. Um die Frage zu beantworten, versucht er die fünf Frauen, die ihm am meisten Liebeskummer zugefügt haben, ausfindig zu machen und zu treffen. Immer wieder versucht er sich einzureden, dass Liebeskummer in seinem Alter nicht mehr wirklich bedeutend sei, sondern nur lästig wie ein Schnupfen oder Geldmangel, und dass das Singleleben durchaus viele Vorzüge biete. Doch auch das Herumhängen mit seinen Angestellten Dick und Barry im Plattenladen, zwei Geschmacksfundamentalisten, die er allerdings mehr als tragische Gestalten und weniger als wirkliche Freunde begreift, und eine Affäre mit einer Sängerin füllen ihn nicht aus. Als er reflektiert, dass seine Exfreundin Laura mit ihrer Kritik nicht immer ganz falsch lag und sich Schallplatten und Frauen nicht ausschließen, hat er nur noch eins im Sinn: sie wieder zurückzugewinnen. Nick Hornbys literarische Bearbeitung der eigenartigen Beziehung von Männern zu Schallplatten wurde rasch zum Erfolgsroman und war monatelang auf den Bestsellerlisten. Die Verfilmung des Romans im Jahre 1999 durch Stephen Frears trug darüber hinaus zur Popularität von High Fidelity bei.

This full-blooded story of The Wailers puts the life, music and death of the legendary Bob Marley into a razor-sharp new perspective. The Wailers played with Marley on all of the hit singles and albums that made him a legend, yet their story since his death is a little-known saga of betrayal, greed and murder that is told here in its entirety for the first time. Written in collaboration with Aston 'Family Man' Barrett and other surviving band members, the book explores Marley's colourful journey from downtown Kingston onto the world stage. It covers the assassination attempt on Marley's life, his exile in London, the kidnapping and decapitation of the Barretts' father, and the death by gunfire of both Peter Tosh and drummer Carlton Barrett. Bitter acrimony followed Marley's own death from cancer as the iconic singer's legacy was parlayed into a multi-million dollar industry.

Goldfinger ist Ian Flemings siebter Bond-Roman und führt den britischen Geheimagenten um die ganze Welt, um einen von Gold besessenen Größenwahnsinnigen aufzuhalten ... Auric Goldfinger: grausam, schlau, frustrierend vorsichtig. Er betrügt beim Canasta und ist ein Gauner im großen Stil, der auch im alltäglichen Leben ständig krumme Dinger dreht. Er ist die Art von Mann, die James Bond hasst. Daher ist es ein Glück für Bond, dass er im Auftrag der Bank von England und des MI5 herausfinden soll, was der reichste Mann des Landes mit seinem unrechtmäßig erworbenen Vermögen vorhat - und in welcher Verbindung er zu SMERSCH steht, dem gefürchteten sowjetischen Korps, das Jagd auf Spione macht. Doch sobald er sich erst einmal in der Organisation dieses gefährlichen Verbrechers befindet, wird 007 klar, dass Goldfingers Pläne grandioser - und tödlicher - sind, als man sich je hätte vorstellen können. Er plant nicht nur den größten Goldraub in der Geschichte, sondern auch Massenmord ... Jeder kennt sie: die teils stark von den Vorlagen abweichenden Verfilmungen der James-Bond-Romane. Pünktlich zum 50-jährigen Jubliäum der Filmreihe gilt es die Ian-Fleming-Originale erstmals im "Director's Cut" zu entdecken! Endlich wird es möglich sein, Titel wie "Goldfinger", "Thunderball" oder "You Only Live Twice" komplett in ungekürzten Übersetzungen und mit den ursprünglichen Kapitelabschnitten und -überschriften zu lesen. Es verspricht eine einzigartige James-Bond-Bibliothek zu werden, die dazu einlädt, dem Kult um den britischen Gentleman-Geheimdienstler mit der "Lizenz zum Töten" auf den Grund zu gehen.

Once an obscure group of outcasts from the ghettoes of West Kingston, Jamaica, the Rastafarians have transformed themselves into a vibrant movement, firmly grounded in Jamaican society and beyond. In Rastafari, Ennis Barrington Edmonds provides a compelling portrait of the Rastafarian phenomenon and chronicles how this group, much maligned and persecuted, became a dominant cultural force in the world today. Edmonds charts the evolution of the relationship between Rastafari and the wider Jamaican society, from confrontation and repression to grudging tolerance and eventually to cultural integration. Edmonds focuses in particular on the internal development of Rastafarianism as a social movement, with its network of "houses" (small, informal groups that form around leading Rastas) and "mansions" (larger, more communal associations), to track the process of this strikingly successful integration. He further demonstrates how Rastafarian artistic creativity, especially in fashioning the music and message of reggae, was a significant factor in the transition of Rastas from the status of outcasts to the position of cultural bearers.
