A thoughtful book that celebrates staycations at a time when the world is grappling with the future of travel. In The Art of Being a Tourist at Home, Jenny Herbert takes us on a journey through our neighborhood streets and our local parks, through museums and libraries, art galleries and bookshops. There's wonder to be found in the theatre and music-making all around us, vibrancy in fresh-food markets, new friends to meet through hobbies and clubs, and so many lifetime learning opportunities to be had-all without the stress involved in planning a holiday. After all, why do we travel in the first place? It's an urgent question in these days of climate crisis and global instability. Staying closer to home makes good sense: it's cheaper, easier, less stressful and better for our health as well as the health of the planet. But Jenny doesn't suggest that we should abandon all future travel plans. Instead, she shows travelers of all kinds how we can still harness the spirit of travel through the art of the staycation. With beautiful illustrations throughout, The Art of Being a Tourist demonstrates that travelling at home offers the greatest potential for us to discover what contributes to our wellbeing and our happiness.

The Art of Being Black explores how young black Britons create their cultural identities. Claire Alexander rejects the common tendency to view black communities in terms of conflict, or as the focus of a problem; she offers a fresh exploration of the strengths and ambiguities of black youth representations as they are imagined and lived through, focusing in particular on community, `class', social life, and masculinity. Young black men have been typecast as hostile and culturally confused, alienated from their parents and from society; as `folk devils' (the stock images of the black mugger, the Rastafarian drug dealer, the rioter, the Yardie), creating problems for society in general. To get a truer view, Dr Alexander spent twelve months as `one of the boys' in a group of young black Londoners; the resulting highly personal, in-depth, and very readable study counters the usual image of ethnic identity as fixed and immutable. Drawing on contemporary debates about culture and ethnicity, this book offers the close observation and informed analysis needed to bring to life theories of black cultural identity.

In this account of how the novel reorients philosophy toward the meaning of existence, Yi-Ping Ong shows that the existentialists discovered a radical way of thinking about the relation between the form of the novel and the nature of self-knowledge, freedom, and the world. At stake are the conditions under which knowledge of existence is possible.
