Beautifully blending contemporary travel writing and military history, John Gimlette travels across Europe in the footsteps of one of the greatest armies ever assembled: the United States forces of 1944-45. In 2004, John Gimlette set off across Europe with his guide Putnam Flint, an eighty-six-year-old Bostonian who had landed in Marseille in the midst of World War II with his tank destroyer battalion, nicknamed The Panthers. With Flint's help, Gimlette traveled from Marseille north to Dijon and Alsace, Paris and Lorraine, across the Rhine into Germany, and eventually south through the Alps into Austria. Gimlette provides a vivid portrait of the route as it is today, from spectacular landscapes to cities that have risen from cinders and as it was during one of the most tumultuous moments in world history. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Madagascar is an extraordinary land of isolated tribes, fantastical landscapes and beguiling creatures such as lemurs, tenrecs and mongooses. If it was stretched out across Europe, it would reach from London to Marrakech, and yet its road network is barely bigger than Jamaica's. Until about the time of Christ, no one lived here at all, and then, when humans did eventually appear, they came all the way from Borneo. As well as visiting every corner of the island, John Gimlette will journey deep into its past, in order better to understand how Madagascar became what it is today. Along the way, he will meet politicians, sorcerers, gem prospectors, hunters, a long-lost community of Jews, and the descendants of 17th-century pirates. His journey across the island, from the beauty of Madagascar's highlands to its parched southern coast, allows its history to unfold in chronological order, from the first humans to arrive here to the great French invasion of 1895 up to Madagascar's challenging trajectory post-independence.

The Black Panther Party represents Black Panther Party members' coordinated responses over the last four decades to the failure of city, state, and federal bureaucrats to address the basic needs of their respective communities. The Party pioneered free social service programs that are now in the mainstream of American life. The Party's Sickle Cell Anemia Research Foundation, operated with Oakland's Children's Hospital, was among the nation's first such testing programs. Its Free Breakfast Program served as a model for national programs. Other initiatives included free clinics, grocery giveaways, school and education programs, senior programs, and legal aid programs. Published here for the first time in book form, The Black Panther Party makes the case that the programs' methods are viable models for addressing the persistent, basic social injustices and economic problems of today's American cities and suburbs.


Stan and Ollie from Soup to Nuts Laurel and Hardy Meet the Pink Panther and Other Escapades

In "Stan and Ollie From Soup to Nuts: Laurel & Hardy Meet the Pink Panther and other escapades," film and show business historian Jordan R. Young gathers together a group of unique pieces about his favorite comedy team, offering revealing anecdotes and little known facts about the duo. The author, who served as editor for the first edition of Randy Skretvedt's acclaimed "Laurel and Hardy: The Magic Behind the Movies," as well as research associate, has written about the team since the 1970s.When Young interviewed Peter Sellers, Blake Edwards and Henry Mancini for The New York Times about "The Pink Panther" films, he discovered to his delight all three were Laurel and Hardy fans, and happy to talk about them as a source of inspiration. The comedians often came to his rescue as a filmmaker, noted Edwards. "If there's a moment where I need a physically humorous perspective, I seem to revert to Stan and Ollie. And that seems to save me." The director also discussed the influence of Leo McCarey, who teamed Laurel and Hardy at Hal Roach Studios in the 1920s.In "They Played the Pantages," George Burns shares memories of Stan and Mae Laurel's vaudeville days. The iconic comedy team of Burns and Allen was still waiting in the wings when George and his partner Billy Lorraine found themselves appearing on the same bill with Stan and Mae. "The Laurels seemed to be fighting day and night. And with the thin-walled dressing rooms on the Pantages circuit, they could easily be heard all over the theater," he recalled.In "Directing Laurel & Hardy," George Marshall offers vivid reminiscences about working with the team, whom he directed in "Pack Up Your Troubles," and two short subjects. "Babe Hardy was the fidgety kind, he'd come in, he'd listen, he'd see the pattern of what you were doing and during that time you were talking he'd suddenly come up with some very good gag...and he'd say, 'Well, I'll see you all later,' and he'd be gone, off to the golf course." Marshall is apparently the only director to discuss working with the beloved comedy team in an in-depth interview, conducted by Young in 1974; this section also includes an overview of Marshall's lengthy career.In "Laurel & Hardy Meet Samuel Beckett," the author asserts "Waiting for Godot" would have provided a fine vehicle for Stan and Ollie. After all, the avant-garde play--the most widely analyzed and discussed of the 20th century--was largely inspired by the popular comedy team, or so it seems. Estragon's attempts to pull off a boot in the play's opening scene recall Hardy's belabored efforts to do likewise in "Be Big," while the tramps' talk of suicide suggests L&H's attempts in "The Flying Deuces." Literary scholars have been digging for the roots of "Godot" for more than 60 years. The intersection where Stan and Ollie met the esteemed playwright, figuratively if not literally, is as good a spot to dig as any. What happens when Laurel and Hardy's long-lost 1927 short subject, "Hats Off," the Holy Grail of comedy aficionados around the world, is discovered in a Cuban film archive? "Hats Off to Pordenone" follows an international group of real-world film scholars and historians in a fictitious adventure as they gather at an annual silent movie festival in Pordenone, Italy, for an eagerly anticipated screening of the film (the blueprint for the team's Oscar-winning short, "The Music Box") and attempt to avert certain disaster when a major problem arises.Jordan R. Young is a veteran journalist whose work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other publications. His books include Spike Jones Off the Record: The Man Who Murdered Music, Reel Characters: Great Movie Character Actors, and The Laugh Crafters: Comedy Writing In Radio & TV's Golden Age. He has written special material for the Grammy Awards and acted as a consultant for BBC Radio.

The epoch of representation is as old as the West. Indeed, representation is the West, understood as what at once designates and expands its own limits. But what comes after the West? What comes after representation's disclosure of its own limit? The central problem posed in these essays, collected from over a decade of work, is how in the wake of Western ontologies to conceive the coming, the birth that characterizes being. We are now at the limit of representation, where objects as we experience them have been show to be merely objects of representation--or rather, of presentation, since there is nothing to (re)present. The first part of this book, "Existence," asks how, today, one can give sense of meaning to existence as such, arguing that existence itself, as it comes nude into the world, must now be our "sense." In examining what this birth to presence might be, we should not ask what presence "is"; rather we should conceive presence as presence to someone, including to presence itself. This birth is not the constitution of an identity, but the endless departure of an identity from, and from within, its other, or others. Its coming is not desire but jouissance, the joy of averring oneself to be continually in the state of being born--a rejoicing of birth, a birth of rejoicing. The second section, "Poetry," asks: What art exposes this? In writing, in the voice, in painting? And what if art is exposed to it? How does it inscribe (or rather, "exscribe," in a term the book develops) the coming existence as such? The author's trajectory in this book crosses those of Hegel, Schlegel, Baudelaire, Nietzsche, Freud, and Heidegger, in their comments on art and politics, existence and corporeality, everyday life and its modes of existence and ecstasy. An analysis that dares this crossing involves all the varied accounts of existence, political as well as philosophical, and all the realms of poverty.
