Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions—sexual, racial, political, artistic—that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. "Brilliantly and fiercely told." —The New York Times Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

The Half-Life of Policy Rationales argues that the appropriateness of policy depends on the state of technology, and that the justifications for many public policies are dissolving as technology advances. As new detection and metering technologies are being developed for highways, parking, and auto emissions, and information becomes more accessible and user-friendly, this volume argues that quality and safety are better handled by the private sector. As for public utilities, new means of producing and delivering electricity, water, postal, and telephone services dissolve the old natural-monopolies rationales of the government. This volume includes essays on marine resources, lighthouses, highways, parking, auto emissions, consumer product safety, money and banking, medical licensing, electricity, water delivery, postal service, community governance, and endangered species. The editors have mobilized the hands-on knowledge of field experts to develop theories about technology and public policy. The Half-Life of Policy Rationales will be of interest to readers in public policy, technology, property rights, and economics.

This book studies the emergence, in the late 1960s and 1970s, of a sophisticated body of gay fiction in Catalan, and examines the relation between the representation of homosexuality and the discourses on national identity that legitimate modern Catalan literature. Gay fiction, argues the author, reveals a tension between the nation and the body in Catalan literature: Catalonia is a nation different from Spain, a cultural and political minority within Europe; but the existence of sexual minorities within its boundaries reveals its inner complexity, which resists homogenization. Catalonia is another country in more ways than one. Drawing on a variety of critical discourses (gay theory, psychoanalysis, and authors such as Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, and Bourdieu), Another Country explores the intertwinings of identity, cultural politics, and desire in the work of Terenci Moix, Lluis Fernandez, Biel Mesquida, and Lluis Maria Todo. The book analyses how gay writers renegotiate identity discourses in Catalan literature in order to introduce homosexuality into them, often with destabilising effects. The role of gay authors in the process of canon construction (a crucial aspect of contemporary cultural nationalism in Catalonia) is also considered, focusing on postmodernism and the divide between high and mass culture. Finally, Another Country addresses the interplay of homosexual desire within the frame of a distinction between perversion and transgression, and proposes an alliance between queer and nationalist discourses.

Asking what Indian readers chose to read and why, In Another Country shows how readers of the English novel transformed the literary and cultural influences of empire. She further demonstrates how Indian novelists writing in English, from Krupa Satthianadhan to Salman Rushdie, took an alien form in an alien language and used it to address local needs. Taken together in this manner, reading and writing reveal the complex ways in which culture is continually translated and transformed in a colonial and postcolonial context.

In her much anticipated memoir, Sisonke Msimang writes about her exile childhood in Zambia and Kenya, young adulthood and college years in North America, and returning to South Africa in the euphoric 1990s. She reflects candidly on her discontent and disappointment with present-day South Africa but also on her experiences of family, romance, and motherhood, with the novelists talent for character and pathos. Militant young comrades dance off the pages of the 1970s Lusaka she invokes, and the heady and naive days of just-democratic South Africa in the 1990s are as vividly painted. Her memoir is at heart a chronicle of a coming-of-age, and while well-known South African political figures appear in these pages, it is an intimate story, a testament to family bonds and sisterhood. Sisonke Msimang is one of the most assured and celebrated voices commenting on the South African present often humorously; sometimes deeply movingly and this book launches her to an even broader audience.

The author, writer and critic, proposes that an incursion into literature - land of the imagination - is not unlike travel to foreign lands, and is more egalitarian because it demands fewer outward requirements on the part of the reader. She sets her mission, or artistic manifesto - 'I believe in the creative ability of people' - into this context and henceforth presents a series of five pieces intending to stimulate the readier's interest in works of Nigerian and foreign writers such as Amadi, Achebe, Baldwin, Wordsworth and Tennyson. These pieces bridge modes of criticism and creative writing and comprise the author's own poetry, explanations of her methods of writing and the creative process. She reflects upon the relationship between parent and child, lovers and man and God in life and as presented in literature. The middle section includes a short story and some 'literary nonesense'. The remaining two parts are offerings around the associations of colour and the opposing sentiments of fear and courage, despair and hope, war and peace, and hatred and love.

The Function of Love in Baldwin s Another Country

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Tubingen, language: English, abstract: The novel Another Country, published in 1962, was written by James Baldwin, an African-American writer, particularly well known for his social-critical essays. Another Country, as a fictional work, serves Baldwin to express several ideas formerly developed in his essay writing and so the novel covers a manifold spectrum of social issues, including race, sexuality and finally love. Love as a central topic in Baldwin's Another Country has been analysed by several critics and even Baldwin admits candidly that the novel shows "the desperate searches" of its characters "for the self- knowledge and self-esteem - the identity - without which real love is impossible." But how do these themes work in the novel, what does such a love have to look like and what does it have to include for the individual to be "able to learn to see real human beings behind the categories, labels, and prejudices" which are imposed by the loveless in a society. This essay undertakes an approximation to these questions mainly on the basis of the novel, considering some of Baldwins essays and works of critics such as Lorelei Cederstorm or David Leeming. The first part will focus on an analysis of the relationship with which the novel starts and which can be regarded as a crucial guideline, a "negative touchstone" for the further development and interpretation of the novel. In Part II a short overview of the other relationships of the novel is provided. By doing this, their connection with the first relationship will be illustrated, until finally it will be posible to suggest how the characters succeed or fail in the matter of love, which Baldwin conceives as "[...] a journey two people have to make with each other."

Depicted as an insular and forbidding police state with an insane dictator at its helm, North Korea - charter member of Bush's Axis of Evil - is a country the U.S. loves to hate. Now the CIA says it possesses nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, as well as long-range missiles capable of delivering them to America's West Coast. But, as Bruce Cumings demonstrates in this provocative, lively read, the story of the U.S.-Korea conflict is more complex than American leaders or news media would have us believe. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Korea, and on declassified government reports, Cumings traces that story, from the brutal Korean War to the present crisis. Harboring no illusions regarding the totalitarian Kim Jong II regime, Cumings nonetheless insists on a more nuanced approach. The result is both a counter-narrative to the official U.S. - and North Korean - version and a fascinating portrayal of North Korea; a country that suffers through foreign invasions, natural disasters, and its own internal contradictions, yet somehow continues to survive.

Britain's adherence to the European Convention on Human Rights has been developed to offer asylum to anybody in the world. In October 2000 the Labour government passed the Human Rights Act, which incorporates the provisions of the Convention into British law. Myles Harris argues that, in order to regain control over its borders, the UK must repeal the Human Rights Act and devise an isolationist, exclusionary immigration policy which includes an internal passport system based on fingerprints, DNA and iris scans; investigations into random asylum claims, followed by prosecution and deportation of those found to be making false claims; fines and imprisonment for those claiming asylum long after arriving in the country; and avoidance of employing immigrants.
