Nothing Goes as Planned When an Injured Cop Hires a Single Mom to Aid His Recovery AND, a Lucky Lady Discovers That Love and Billiards Have Much in Common in Dreams and Schemes, a Romantic Comedy from Marilyn Campbell --Present Day, Florida-- Man with a Plan Officer Jake Slaughter arrives home, exhausted after a double shift to discover an intruder in his bathroom. He draws his gun...on a young woman scrubbing his shower. Kathy often wondered about the cop whose house she cleaned. She just hadn't imagined him naked or pointing a gun at her. But, when he offers her a job while he recovers from an injury, she accepts. Though the physical attraction is mutual, their life plans are incompatible. Jake wants a stay-at-home wife, Kathy wants a career and is dead-set against marriage. For Jake, persuading Kathy to marry him will require compromise, the one skill this street cop has never mastered. Lucky Lady Case Hardin didn't recognize the blonde. Clearly, she was no amateur pool player. So, what did she want from him? Joey Duval was twelve when she met "Hard-Case" in the back room of her parents' pool hall. Stricken with puppy-love, she taught him her secret trick-shot in exchange for a favor. Since then, the awkward girl became a beautiful woman and Case left the world of competitive pool behind. But Joey never forgot her interlude with the legendary shooter or his promise. And now, thirteen years later, she's ready to collect. Publisher Note: These two fun-filled, romantic comedies contain mild profanity and steamy sex that will be enjoyed by adult readers of sexy, humorous romance. "Splashes of humor in this sometimes sweet, sometimes sexy romance make for a fun, fast read." ~Book Nook "Marilyn Campbell stirs up a thoroughly entertaining, lighthearted story with plenty of steamy romance when she mixes the game of pool with a hot guy hiding from his past and an ambitious gal seeking revenge." ~Rendezvous Reviews

Everything that you need to know about reading, making, and understanding comics can be found in a single Nancy strip by Ernie Bushmiller from August 8, 1959. Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden’s groundbreaking work How to Read Nancy ingeniously isolates the separate building blocks of the language of comics through the deconstruction of a single strip. No other book on comics has taken such a simple yet methodical approach to laying bare how the comics medium really works. No other book of any kind has taken a single work by any artist and minutely (and entertainingly) pulled it apart like this. How to Read Nancy is a completely new approach towards deep-reading art. In addition, How to Read Nancy is a thoroughly researched history of how comics are made, from their creation at the drawing board to their ultimate destination at the bookstore. Textbook, art book, monogram, dissection, How to Read Nancy is a game changer in understanding how the “simplest” drawings grab us and never leave. Perfect for students, academics, scholars, and casual fans.

The American West, from the beginning of Euro-American settlement, has been shaped by diverse ideas about how to utilize physical space and natural environments to create cohesive, sometimes exclusive community identities. When westerners developed their towns, they constructed spaces and cultural identities that reflected alternative understandings of modern urbanity. The essays in City Dreams, Country Schemes utilize an interdisciplinary approach to explore the ways that westerners conceptualized, built, and inhabited urban, suburban, and exurban spaces in the twentieth century. The contributors examine such topics as the attractions of open space and rural gentrification in shaping urban development; the role of tourism in developing national parks, historical sites, and California's Napa Valley; and the roles of public art, gender, and ethnicity in shaping urban centers. City Dreams, Country Schemes reveals the values and expectations that have shaped the West and the lives of the people who inhabit it.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s a wave of Ponzi schemes swept through Papua New Guinea, Australia, and the Solomon Islands. The most notorious scheme, U-Vistract, attracted many thousands of investors, enticing them with promises of 100 percent interest to be paid monthly. Its founder, Noah Musingku, was a charismatic leader who promoted the scheme as a form of Christian mission and as the basis for establishing an independent kingdom. Fast Money Schemes uses in-depth interviews with investors, newspaper accounts, and participant observation to understand the scheme's appeal from the point of view of those who invested and lost, showing that organizers and investors alike understood the scheme as a way of accessing and participating in a global economy. John Cox delivers a "post-village" ethnography that gives insight into the lives of urban, middle-class Papua New Guineans, a group that is not familiar to US readers and that has seldom been a focus of anthropological interest. The book's concern with understanding the interweaving of morality, finance, and aspirations shared by a global cosmopolitan middle class has wide resonance beyond studies of Papua New Guinea and anthropology.

This is the first book to consider the increasing importance of Jean-Luc Nancy's work, which has influenced key thinkers such as Jacques Derrida. All his major works have been translated into English, yet until now little has been made available on his place in contemporary philosophy. By showing how he situates his work in a contemporary context - the collapse of communism, the Gulf War, and the former Yugoslavia - this outstanding collection reveals how Nancy's engagement with Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Derrida makes him one of the key contemporary continental philosophers. Providing new perspectives on the issues of sense, art and community, these essays make it impossible to approach philosophy without reference to the work Jean-Luc Nancy.

The Cutting Edge, a satirical novel in two parts, presents a clear-sighted critique of the current state of academia. Set in a SUNY campus, diary entries that may or may not have been written by a student depict an environment marked by a series of contradictions guaranteed to discourage intellectual growth: a school mission statement that voices a commitment to social justice, academic freedom and a Student Code of Conduct that prohibits student demonstrations; administrative decisions to spy on students; a campus police force bent on uncovering student crime and collective punishment for residents living in dorms that are rarely cleaned; rising tuition costs coupled with declining academic standards leaving students up to their elbows in debt and ill-prepared for employment in a declining economy. Fortunately, there is a lone voice in the wilderness, a Professor who—despite knowing that he's teaching after the death of the book—continues to lay out an analysis of contemporary life where prisons, shopping malls and Walmart stores blight the landscape and barbarians run the universities. He wages the good fight for the rights of students against an administration that resembles a constitutional monarchy and budget cuts that ultimately lead to his death, yet his is the last voice the reader hears as the novel ends. In the second part of the novel, his memoir, we get the Professor's delineation of all that's wrong in present-day life. Without giving too much away, suffice it to say that finance capital, real estate speculation, and the postmodern condition are discussed. —Dawn Esposito, St. John's University The Cutting Edge is a novel of powerful imagination, rollicking humour, profound insight and deep political commitment. The novel is divided into two parts. The first is The College Essays of Jenny Delight. No one is quite sure who Jenny is. It is an obvious pseudonym since there is no student by this name at the college she attends. It is a hilarious section laced with social and personal insight as Jenny tries to understand the world around her, often using categories she's learning, sometimes the most abstract categories available, and infusing them with vivid meaning. The second section, Bill of Sale, is the posthumously-discovered manuscript of Sociology Professor Fred Snyder. It is a harrowing account of very vulnerable and often screwed-up people who are totally against their society. It is a section revealing, with extraordinary power, the ruthlessness of contemporary capitalism and its relentless destructive force. The Cutting Edge is one hell of a book! —Robert Roth, author of Health Proxy At once funny and dead serious, The Cutting Edge tells it like it is about the situation of public higher education in the early 21st-century United States. Sociology professor Fred Snyder—nostalgic for the era of Marcuse and the New Left, eternally at war with the college administration, committed to the ethical and political development of his students—is a wonderful creation. Skillfully narrated from several overlapping points of view, this satirical novel cuts to the chase in its astute portrayal of the connections between contemporary capitalism and the working-class college experience. —Barbara Foley, Rutgers University The Cutting Edge is at once a meeting of teachers and students under conditions of critical hilarity, and a deeply empathetic portrait of where the commitment to re-craft our learning environments in line with their most abiding promise might lead us if we attend closely as the author does to the poignancy of the stories all around us. It rewards readers with an insightful view on a delicate landscape often overlooked. —Randy Martin, New York University

The first collection of plays from Booker Prize and Orange Prize finalist and author of international bestseller Room, Emma Donoghue. Contains the plays Kissing the Witch, Don’t Die Wondering, Trespasses, Ladies and Gentlemen, and I Know My Own Heart KISSING THE WITCH Adapted from her book of thirteen revisionist fairy tales of the same name, this play interweaves four classic plots – Beauty and the Beast, Donkeyskin, the Goose Girl, the Little Mermaid – with an invented one about a desperate girl going to a witch for help. Kissing the Witch finds the gritty in the fantastical, and excavates magic to find what’s really going on. TRESPASSES Set over three days in 1661, Trespasses is inspired by the judge’s own account of one of the tiny handful of witch trials that ever took place in Ireland. It asks why a servant girl who fell into fits would have put the blame on an old beggarwoman – but also, more timeless questions about the clashing cultures that have to share a small island country. Trespasses is about faith and superstition, politics and class, sadism and love. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN This play with songs, set mostly in the dressing rooms of busy vaudeville theatres all over North America, was inspired by a real same-sex wedding that took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1886. It resurrects a ragtag troupe of emigrants - most notably, male impersonator Annie Hindle, ‘a man’s widow and a woman’s widower’, as the tabloids called her. With a light touch, Ladies and Gentleman explores the ways we perform our roles, both on and off stage. I KNOW MY OWN HEART Inspired by the secret coded diaries of Yorkshire gentlewoman Anne Lister, this play subverts all the conventions of Regency romance. Teasing out the entangled lives of mannish, arrogant Lister (nicknamed 'Gentleman Jack') and three of her many lovers, I Know My Own Heart explores the different choices women made in a time of limits and prohibitions. DON’T DIE WONDERING When a restaurant cook loses her job because of a homophobic customer, she mounts a one-woman picket in protest. The police officer assigned to protect her is her nemesis from schooldays. This one-act comedy, set in a fictional small town, stages a battle between old and new elements of Irish culture.

Nancy Love’s concise yet complete volume aims to inform students of their choices among political values. By exploring the assumptions of various ideologies and comparing their positions, students begin to understand political alternatives to be able to choose among them—in essence, they learn to think democratically. Offering historical and analytic context for the selections in her companion reader, Dogmas and Dreams, Love challenges students to consider the various ways ideological frameworks shape political actions. Reframing her approach in this second edition, Love examines how traditional left/right ideologies—liberalism and conservatism, socialism and fascism—are shifting to adapt to new political realities in an ever turbulent, post-9/11 world. She also discusses why alternative ideologies—feminism, environmentalism, fundamentalism, and globalization—may better convey our global political future. While pushing the boundaries of the left/right political spectrum, she looks at how grassroots social movements offer alternative ways to view ideological differences, from cluster-concepts to micro-discourses, and even a planetary galaxy. Expanded coverage includes: a new chapter on nationalism and globalization, which examines the work of Samuel Huntington, Kenichi Ohmae, Benjamin Barber, and many more, to explore fundamentalism in Islamic politics increased coverage of global environmental politics, including Shiva’s Stolen Harvest and Kelly’s Thinking Green, examining the relationships between developed and developing countries fresh material on socialist politics post-1989 and the rise of neo-fascist movements in the United States and Europe, including analysis of Hayden and Flacks’ “The Port Huron Statement at 40” and Bob Moser’s “The Age of Rage” an updated feminism chapter that considers the impact of third-wave, post-colonial, and so-called “power” feminists and incorporates new analysis of Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and Mohanty’s Under Western Eyes Revisited A thinking person’s package… Nancy Love wrote Understanding Dogmas and Dreams with her edited collection in mind—the two work together as a seamless package and give students great value for their money.
