Mit seinem Buch „City of Quartz“ hat Mike Davis im Jahr 1990 eine intensive Recherche zu aktuellen Themen der Stadtentwicklung anhand von Los Angeles vorgelegt. Dabei hat er nicht nur quasi die zwei Jahre später stattfindenden Unruhen vorhergesagt, sondern eine weitergehende Theorie der post-liberalen Stadt entwickelt, die die Stadtsoziologie im hohen Maß beunruhigt hat. Ist Los Angeles erst der Anfang? Davis ist ein kritischer Historiker, der sich aus der Arbeiterbewegung kommend mit Themen wie der amerikanischen Arbeiterbewegung, der Latino-Immigration und den Auswirkungen des Neo-Liberalismus beschäftigt hat. Seinen theoretischen Ansatz einer kritischen Stadtsoziologie hat er darüber hinaus mit Büchern über San Diego, den „Toten Städten“ und über die weltweiten Slums dargelegt.

What are the true determinants of a happy and fulfilling life? Widely admired psychological researcher Rag Raghunathan sets out to find the answer, undertaking extensive research into the happiness of students, business people, stay-at-home-parents, lawyers, and artists, among others. From his research he reveals a crucial discovery: many of the psychological traits that lead to success ironically get in the way of happiness. Forging a new way forward, Raghunathan shows how we can transform these key traits of success, namely the need to be loved, the need for importance and the need for control, and replace them with other behaviours, goals and values to improve our life-long levels of happiness.

"This volume provides an analysis of the nature of competition in contemporary American sport. This work traces American sport from American culture to the influence of the 1960s counterculture and the resulting rise of a post-Cold War ethos that continues to reinterpret competitiveness as a relic of a misbegotten past and anathema to American life"--Provided by publisher.

The silver-and-black-clad Oakland Raiders fans are the most notorious in American professional sports, with a mythic reputation for cursing, drinking, brawling, and generally wreaking mayhem. The devotion of the team’s multiracial, largely blue-collar supporters runs deep, creating a profound sense of community. As Jim Miller and Kelly Mayhew reveal in this hair-raising and entertaining new book, the self-described Raider Nation, smitten with its outlaw mystique, provides a gritty alternative to California’s sunshine-and-granola image. Over the course of the harrowing 2003 season, Miller and Mayhew explored the reality behind the myth and interviewed legions of rabid Raiders fans—from suburban families to bikers—while attending games in the “Black Hole” (the rowdiest section in Oakland’s stadium), frequenting sports bars, and crashing tailgate parties. Featuring the extraordinary photography of Joseph A. Blum, Better to Reign in Hell is both a rollicking tale of obsessive fandom and a fascinating study of the intersection of class, race, gender, and community in professional sports.
