A brilliant new translation of Koestler's long-lost original manuscript. A chilling and unforgettable 20th century classic. From a prison cell in an unnamed country run by a totalitarian government Rubashov reflects. Once a powerful player in the regime, mercilessly dispensing with anyone who got in the way of his party’s aims, Rubashov has had the tables turned on him. He has been arrested and he’ll be interrogated, probably tortured and certainly executed. Darkness at Noon is as gripping as a thriller and a seminal work of twentieth-century literature. Published in Great Britain in 1940, it was feted by George Orwell, went on to be translated into thirty languages and is considered the finest work of pre-eminent European master, Arthur Koestler. And yet the novel’s worldwide reputation has, for over seventy years, been based on the first incomplete and inexpert English translation – Koestler’s original manuscript was lost when he fled the German occupation of Paris in 1940. In 2016, a student discovered that long-lost manuscript in a Zurich archive. At last, with the publication of this new translation of the rediscovered original, Koestler’s masterpiece can be experienced afresh and in its entirety for the first time.

Sidney Kingsley is a playwright, but through his writing he has played many other parts as well - a social and political activist, a health care reformer, an advocate for children, a patriot, a visionary. Of his nine professionally produced plays, five garnered major awards. This collection of Kingsley's award-winning plays fills a void in American dramatic publishing and provides the definitive edition of the plays, each with an introduction by the playwright. Although critical statements on Kingsley's work do appear in significant studies of American theatre, and though his plays continue to be produced, there has never been a standard edition of his major works. At a time when abortion may again become illegal and the inadequacy of the health care system is a daily topic, when children facing hopelessness and poverty stare at us from the evening news, when police brutality cases are before the courts, and when issues of individual patriotism and the position of the United States as a democracy in a rapidly changing world arise - in a time, in fact, when all the human rights issues and social problems dealt with in these plays are still, or again, with us - Sidney Kingsley has proven to be a playwright whose work is timely as well as timeless.

In 2002, our Nation was unsure of its future, panicked by its recent past, and struggling to come to terms with a mounting war and the ever-changing colors of terror. Through it all two poets in a newfound friendship felt it necessary to stop the chaos and share their thoughts, views, struggles, fears, frustrations, and daily triumphs with each other. Sometimes scathing and brash, sometimes vulnerable, sometimes self-assured, the conversational threads have been woven into a constant, furious tapestry covering the landscape of the American South, the desert Southwest and all the way to the cold mountains of Switzerland. These letters represent a refusal to submit and a wild shout to the heavens that art can still matter.

In this collection, leading scholars from a variety of disciplines offer insights into the provocative work of Ren Girard, and look at the question of whether religion is a cause of or a cure for social violence. The authors argue that the Bible presents a "God of Victims" who stands, along with the Hebrew prophets and Jesus, in nonviolent opposition to the systematic destruction of the innocent.
