Our moment has seen the resurgence of an anarchist sensibility, from the uprisings in Seattle in 1999 to the Occupy movement of 2011. Against the vacuity and drift of financialized capitalism, proclaiming "There is no Alternative," these insurgent movements have insisted that an alternative is possible. In The Ballerina and the Bull Johanna Isaacson explores the occult history of US punk, hardcore, queercore, and riot grrrl, DIY culture, and alternative subcultures to trace a new politics of "expressive negation" that both contests the present order and gives us a sense of the impasses of politics in an age of depoliticization. "Expressive negation" registers the contradictory politics at the heart of these projects: the desire for negation that must be positively expressed. Drawing on first-hand experience, interviews, and discussion of the ludic, spatial, and sexual politics of anarchist subcultures, Isaacson maps an underground utopian politics of style and develops a radically new history of the present moment.

A low-budget independent film made by a now defunct video company in the late 1980s, Dirty Dancing became a sleeper hit with a huge, primarily young audience. Even twenty-five years on, the film has found millions of devoted fans around the world through TV, video, and DVD releases. In The Time of Our Lives: Dirty Dancing and Popular Culture editors Yannis Tzioumakis and Siân Lincoln bring together leading scholars of film, media, music, culture, theater, dance, and sociology to examine for the first time the global cultural phenomenon of Dirty Dancing. Tzioumakis and Lincoln begin by assessing Dirty Dancing's cultural impact in the decades since its release and introduce contributors in four sections. Essays in "Dirty Dancing in Context" look at the film from several perspectives, including its production and distribution history, its blending of genres, its treatment of race, and its place in the political and visual culture of the 1980s. In "Questions of Reception," contributors examine the many ways that the film has been received since its release, while those in "The Production of Nostalgia" focus on the film's often critiqued production of an idealized past. Finally, contributors in "Beyond the Film" examine the celebrated synergies that the film achieved in the "high concept" film environment of the 1980s, and the final two essays deal with the successful adaptation of the film for the stage. With the enormous cultural impact it has made over the years, Dirty Dancing offers many opportunities for thought-provoking analysis. Fans of the movie and students and scholars of cultural, performance, and film history will appreciate the insight in The Time of Our Lives.

Leningrad, July 1980. As the USSR gets bogged down in its invasion of Afghanistan, the KGB sees an opportunity to crack down on its opponents. Quiet, industrious scientist Mels Katz seems perfectly suited for the job--perfectly expendable, that is. But when Katz refuses to present a bogus technical paper at a conference just prior to the Moscow Olympics, the KGB´s vengeance will send him on a riverboat journey into the heart of darkness of the Soviet Union. Unwittingly involved in a plot to "Trip the Ballerina," lead by a mysterious KGB general, Katz tracks the author of the technical paper to the Caucasus. With no allies except an Armenian crime boss and the Uzbeki dancer who loves him, Mels must rescue his daughter from KGB headquarters. Rebuffed by the U.S. Consulate, whom he finds to be involved in the scheme, his only chance of escape is if he can swap identities with a young conscript en route to Kandahar.

Fiction. "French philosophy forms a conceptual undercurrent for the book: the sophistic arguments of this super-sized Sartre harken back to the perverse enlightenment logic of Sade, and Zimmerman's prose sparkles when he engages Batialleian religious imagery (e.g., the 'porcine holocaust, ' or Eliot Greebee's meditations on death while floating drugged and naked upon the Atlantic). Zimmerman draws a charmingly puerile Eliot, unable to wait for a moment, philosophically unable to delay gratification, physically unable to resist consuming any potable on his person, whether candy, drugs, or alcohol. Eliot is completely determined by consumer culture and dreams in 'richer colors, deep green the color of Astroturf, purple like grape Bubble-Yum, orange like Orange Crush, red like Hawaiian Punch'"--Review of Contemporary Fiction
