Set against the backdrop of Europe's slide into Fascism, Blue of Noon is a blackly compelling account of depravity and violence. As its narrator lurches despairingly from city to city in a surreal sexual and mental nightmare of squalor, sadism and drunken encounters, his internal collapse mirrors the fighting and marching on the streets outside. Exploring the dark forces beneath the surface of civilization, this is a novel torn between identifying with history's victims and being seduced by the monstrous glamour of its terrible victors, and is one of the twentieth century's great nihilist works.

The true story of England’s worst traitor is the backbone of this thrilling novel about love and deception behind enemy lines Harry Cole’s rakish charm carries him all the way from London’s East End to Hong Kong, where he chauffeurs a local colonel—when he’s not bedding the man’s wife. With the Imperial Japanese Army about to spoil the fun, Harry quits the East, settling in France just before the Nazis take over. His timing might need a little work, but he’s found the perfect cover—as the debonair Captain Mason of the British Special Operations Executive, Harry plans to stay out of the way until the war is over, and maybe make a little money in the meantime. It’s all going perfectly until a beautiful French nurse convinces Harry to stick his neck out for what is right. He finds that aiding the Resistance is just the kind of high-wire act he was born to perform, and with Odile’s support he grows bolder and more creative than ever. But the two lovers are operating in a den of deception, and risk crossing the wrong person at every turn. Sure enough, by war’s end Harry Cole is facing the one charge that even he might not be able to talk his way out of: treason.

Georges Bataille was arguably the greatest influence on the poststructuralist revolution in twentieth-century thought and literature, yet few truly understand his work and legacy. Stuart Kendall now translates the work and life of this renowned French writer, anthropologist, and philosopher into a concise yet informative biography that reveals fascinating facets of this intellectual giant. Until his death in 1962, Bataille was an instrumental force in philosophical debate, acting as a foil for both Surrealism and Existentialism and advocating radical views that spanned the entire spectrum of political thought. Georges Bataille chronicles these aspects of his intellectual development, as well as tracing out his pivotal role in the creation of the College of Sociology and how his writings in aesthetics and art history laid the groundwork for visual culture studies. Kendall positions Bataille at the heart of a prodigous community of thinkers, including André Breton, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Jacques Lacan. A compelling account, Georges Bataille will be invaluable for all thinkers who have benefited from Bataille’s lasting contributions.

Rubaschow, Mitglied der "alten Garde" eines revolutionären Staates, wird eines Nachts im eigenen Land und im Auftrag der eigenen Partei verhaftet. Der einstige Volkskommissar bleibt zwar auch in der Gefängniszelle seinen politischen Grundsätzen treu, allmählich wird ihm aber bewußt, welche Schuld er im Dienste der Weltrevolution auf sich geladen haben könnte und daß der Zweck womöglich nicht jedes Mittel heiligt. Um moralische Kategorien geht es seinen innerparteilichen Gegnern allerdings nicht: Angeklagt wegen oppositioneller Gesinnung und Verschwörung, widersetzt Rubaschow sich zunächst den haltlosen Vorwürfen, bis sein Widerstand in unbarmherzigen Verhören gebrochen wird. – "Sonnenfinsternis", Koestlers Abrechnung mit dem Stalinismus und jeder Form von politischem Totalitarismus, wurde in über dreißig Sprachen übersetzt und gilt als einer der bedeutendsten politischen Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts.

How do we imagine the cities of tomorrow? This is one of the most difficult questions that architects, designers, and urban planners need to answer in a time where more than half of the world’s population lives in urban settlements – a mere century ago only ten percent did. Cities of Tomorrow examines innovative urban proposals that will transform the way we live; projects that preserve the natural landscape with integral architecture and urbanism with deep connections to site, culture, and environment. These are concepts of hybrid urbanism that offer a juxtaposition of programs to live, work, and play for a hyper-mobile population.
