Noir in the North by Stacy Gillis,Gunnthorunn Gudmundsdottir Book Resume:

What is often termed 'Nordic Noir' has dominated detective fiction, film and television internationally for over two decades. But what are the parameters of this genre, both historically and geographically? What is noirish and what is northern about Nordic noir? The foreword and coda in this volume, by two internationally-bestselling writers of crime fiction in the north, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir and Gunnar Staalesen, speak to the social contract undertaken by writers of noir, while the interview with the renowned crime writer Val McDermid adds nuance to our understanding of what it is to write noir in the North. Divided into four sections – Gender and Sexuality, Space and Place, Politics and Crime, and Genre and Genealogy – Noir in the North challenges the traditional critical histories of noir by investigating how it functions transnationally beyond the geographical borders of Scandinavia. The essays in this book deepen our critical understanding of noir more generally by demonstrating, for example, Nordic noir's connection to fin-de-siècle literatures and to mid-century interior design, and by investigating the function of the state in crime fiction.

THE CONAN SAGA by Robert E. Howard Book Resume:

"Howard was the Thomas Wolfe of fantasy, and most of his Conan tales seem to almost fall over themselves in their need to get out." - Stephen King "A hero of mythic proportion, fashioned by a storyteller who helped define what a modern fantasy should be. "Rogues in the House" is one of the finest tales of sword and sorcery ever written." - Raymond E. Feist "Handsome." - Fantasy and Science Fiction Conan the Cimmerian: the boy-thief who became a mercenary, who fought and loved his way across fabled lands to become King of Aquilonia. Neither supernatural fiends nore demonic sorcery could oppose the barbarian warrior as he wielded his mighty sword and dispatched his enemies to a bloody doom on the battlefields of the legendary Hyborian age. Collected together in one volume are - besides the poem Cimmeria - A Poem (1932) and the essay The Hyborian Age - Conan's World (1936) - Robert E. Howard's tales of the legendary hero, as fresh and atmospheric today as when they were first published in the pulp magazines of more than seventy years ago: The Tower Of The Elephant (1933), Rogues In The House (1934), Shadows In The Moonlight (1934), Black Colossus (1933), Queen Of The Black Coast (1934), The Slithering Shadow (1933), A Witch Shall Be Born (1934), The Devil In Iron (1934), The People Of The Black Circle (1934), Shadows In Zamboula (1935), The Pool Of The Black One (1930), Beyond The Black River (1935), The Black Stranger (1932), Red Nails (1936), Jewels Of Gwalhur (1935), The Phoenix On The Sword (1932), The Scarlet Citadel (1933) and The Hour Of The Dragon (1935).

Shadows in Zamboula by Robert E. Howard Book Resume:

Cannibalism was not tolerated openly in Zamboula. But Conan knew now why people locked themselves in so securely at night, and why even beggars shunned the open alley and doorless ruins. He grunted in disgust as he visualized brutish black shadows skulking up and down the nighted streets, seeking human prey--and such men as Aram Baksh to open the doors to them. The innkeeper was not a demon; he was worse. The slaves from Darfar were notorious thieves; there was no doubt that some of their pilfered loot found its way into the hands of Aram Baksh. And in return he sold them human flesh.

Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman Book Resume:

The true story of an ordinary woman living an extraordinary existence all over the world. “Gelman doesn’t just observe the cultures she visits, she participates in them, becoming emotionally involved in the people’s lives. This is an amazing travelogue.” —Booklist At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita Golden Gelman left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986, Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.

Critique de la raison nègre by Achille MBEMBE Book Resume:

De tous les humains, le Nègre est le seul dont la chair fut faite marchandise. Au demeurant, le Nègre et la race n'ont jamais fait qu'un dans l'imaginaire des sociétés européennes. Depuis le XVIIIe siècle, ils ont constitué, ensemble, le sous-sol inavoué et souvent nié à partir duquel le projet moderne de connaissance – mais aussi de gouvernement – s'est déployé. La relégation de l'Europe au rang d'une simple province du monde signera-t-elle l'extinction du racisme, avec la dissolution de l'un de ses signifiants majeurs, le Nègre ? Ou au contraire, une fois cette figure historique dissoute, deviendrons-nous tous les Nègres du nouveau racisme que fabriquent à l'échelle planétaire les politiques néolibérales et sécuritaires, les nouvelles guerres d'occupation et de prédation, et les pratiques de zonage ? Dans cet essai à la fois érudit et iconoclaste, Achille Mbembe engage une réflexion critique indispensable pour répondre à la principale question sur le monde de notre temps : comment penser la différence et la vie, le semblable et le dissemblable ?

Migration by Hugh Dingle Book Resume:

Migration, broadly defined as directional movement to take advantage of spatially distributed resources, is a dramatic behaviour and an important component of many life histories that can contribute to the fundamental structuring of ecosystems. In recent years, our understanding of migration has advanced radically with respect to both new data and conceptual understanding. It is now almost twenty years since publication of the first edition, and an authoritative and up-to-date sequel that provides a taxonomically comprehensive overview of the latest research is therefore timely. The emphasis throughout this advanced textbook is on the definition and description of migratory behaviour, its ecological outcomes for individuals, populations, and communities, and how these outcomes lead to natural selection acting on the behaviour to cause its evolution. It takes a truly integrative approach, showing how comparisons across a diversity of organisms and biological disciplines can illuminate migratory life cycles, their evolution, and the relation of migration to other movements. Migration: The Biology of Life on the Move focuses on migration as a behavioural phenomenon with important ecological consequences for organisms as diverse as aphids, butterflies, birds and whales. It is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate level students taking courses in behaviour, spatial ecology, 'movement ecology', and conservation. It will also be of interest and use to a broader audience of professional ecologists and behaviourists seeking an authoritative overview of this rapidly expanding field.

The Khat Controversy by David Anderson,Susan Beckerleg,Degol Hailu,Axel Klein Book Resume:

Khat. A harmless natural stimulant or a lethal epidemic sweeping through the international drugs trade? Khat is a natural substance that, in the Middle East, is as ubiquitous as coffee is in the West. It is hugely popular in some African and Arab populations. But critics contend that it is a seriously addictive stimulant that damages the cardiovascular system. In a groundbreaking study, the authors go behind the veil of the drug, questioning its availability and its effect on its Red Sea producers. Interwoven with case studies from Djibouti to Rome, The Khat Controversy goes deeper to explore contemporary issues relating to globalization, ethnicity and culture. With its popularity escalating in London, Rome, Toronto and Copenhagen, khat is fast becoming a problem in the West. The first study of this contested drug, The Khat Controversy provides a concise introduction to the issues surrounding khat usage and suggests how policymakers should address them. The Khat Controversy: Stimulating the Debate on Drugs has received an honorable mention for the African Studies Association's 2008 Melville J. Herskovits Award.
