A classic California noir with a feminist twist, this prescient 1947 novel exposed misogyny in post-World War II American society, making it far ahead of its time. Los Angeles in the late 1940s is a city of promise and prosperity, but not for former fighter pilot Dix Steele. To his mind nothing has come close to matching “that feeling of power and exhilaration and freedom that came with loneness in the sky.” He prowls the foggy city night—­bus stops and stretches of darkened beaches and movie houses just emptying out—seeking solitary young women. His funds are running out and his frustrations are growing. Where is the good life he was promised? Why does he always get a raw deal? Then he hooks up with his old Air Corps buddy Brub, now working for the LAPD, who just happens to be on the trail of the strangler who’s been terrorizing the women of the city for months... Written with controlled elegance, Dorothy B. Hughes’s tense novel is at once an early indictment of a truly toxic masculinity and a twisty page-turner with a surprisingly feminist resolution. A classic of golden age noir, In a Lonely Place also inspired Nicholas Ray’s 1950 film of the same name, starring Humphrey Bogart.

The novel is set in contemporary Europe. It brings to focus the often complex and turbulent experience of people who leave home for other parts unfamiliar to them. A young Modern Languages graduate of his country’s University, left the true, steadfast and reassuring love of his dedicated family in the West Coast of Africa for faraway Europe. He left home in pursuit of the much- spoken- about ‘good life’ in the West of Europe. It in simple terms means; assured prosperity or freedom from poverty. This fantasy was rife and sustained in his community and other parts of the developing world, namely: most of the continent of Africa Asia and some parts of the Middle East. These are ravaged by acts of wars and; mismanagement by those in position of power and authority. His migration journey was relatively uneventful, but he heard true account of sordid stories of hardship, exploitation, abuse and widespread loss of lives on the wide open seas en- route to migration. Reality dawned on him, when he was greeted with instant dislike and rejection from his so-called hosts. He was alone and unwanted whatever he did. Shortly, he met some acquaintances who felt the same like him. Then he was sure he was not over- sensitive or over reacting to his new environment. He discovered that the much- sought- after prosperity would elude him no matter how much he persevered,{his high level of education failed to afford him a meaningful job} For the largest number of the ethnic population, he was ‘Persona non grata: ( an unwelcome or unwanted person). It was apparent that in England and the wider Europe, there was no ‘mythical dream’ like in the so-called ‘beloved New World’. Sometimes the hatred of the ‘migrants’ as they are pejoratively renamed, escalates to death or near death proportion precipitating a migrant hunt in immigration van. Sadly, almost everyone is in it (in varying degrees). Fellow workers at the menial job he did (the infamous 3D jobs) for lack of any thing better, do not hide their disaffection and rejection. His neighbour appeared not to stand the sight of him. Many in the neighbourhood are compulsively resistant to anyone from non- identical race or background. Fellow migrants avoid each other for self preservation. Many laboured to ingratiate themselves with the hosts at the expense of other migrants It was an open secret that the so-called ‘migrants’ are part of the political football, and the law- makers do not hesitate to focus on the dislike of the migrant to impress the voters. The migrant hunt was on-going in the white vans: (obviously threatening to catch and deport them) He felt trapped. Indeed it was hard to choose to leave or stay. He spared a short time to offer a simplistic advice to the youths at his home, and any would-be ‘migrant’ “Please do not leave home at all costs” (in spite of everything he stressed), Europe may not be worth it after all’, he concluded.

A range of approaches to the director’s life and work. The director of such classic Hollywood films as In a Lonely Place, Johnny Guitar, and Rebel Without a Cause, Nicholas Ray nevertheless remained on the margins of the American studio system throughout his career, and despite his cult status among auteurist critics and cinephiles, he has also remained at the margins of film scholarship. Lonely Places, Dangerous Ground offers twenty new essays by international film historians and critics that explore the director’s place in the history of the Hollywood industry and in the larger institution of cinema, as well as a 1977 interview with Ray that has never before been published in its entirety in English. In addition to readings of Ray’s most celebrated films, the book provides a range of approaches to his life and work, engaging new questions of his cinematic authorship with areas that include history and culture, politics and society, gender and sexuality, style and genre, performance, technology, and popular music. The collection also looks at Ray’s lesser-known and underappreciated films, and devotes attention to the highly experimental We Can’t Go Home Again, his recently restored final film made in the 1970s with his students at Binghamton University, State University of New York. Rediscovering what Ray means to contemporary film studies, the essays show how his films continue to possess a vital power for film history and criticism, and for film culture.

Each of us at some point asks: how can I find meaning in life? For the author, the answer comes from a piece of land in the Murray mallee, that quintessentially Australian semi-desert, where life's struggle for existence is nakedly apparent. Instead of scarcity, however, she shows us the abundance, sustainability and diversity of the ecological communities that have evolved to make it their home, and the wisdom they offer to our human species.''We all held the work in great admiration, it is very beautiful and intimate, and offers a unique perspective on our relationship with the Australian landscape, particularly given the feminist perspective...''Editor, Brandl and Schlesinger.''...you write well and your book will be powerful...''Publisher, University of NSW Press

The concept of "un-Americanism," so vital to the HUAC crusade of the 1940s and 1950s, was resoundingly revived in the emotional rhetoric that followed the September 11th terrorist attacks. Today's political and cultural climate makes it more crucial than ever to come to terms with the consequences of this earlier period of repression and with the contested claims of Americanism that it generated. "Un-American" Hollywood reopens the intense critical debate on the blacklist era and on the aesthetic and political work of the Hollywood Left. In a series of fresh case studies focusing on contexts of production and reception, the contributors offer exciting and original perspectives on the role of progressive politics within a capitalist media industry. Original essays scrutinize the work of individual practitioners, such as Robert Rossen, Joseph Losey, Jules Dassin, and Edward Dmytryk, and examine key films, including The Robe, Christ in Concrete, The House I Live In, The Lawless, The Naked City, The Prowler, Body and Soul, and FTA.

A riveting novel from the author of the critically acclaimed Learning to Swim and an Anthony Award nominee for Best Novel While she's watching the crew build the Winter Carnival ice palace, Troy Chance sees a body encased in the frozen lake—a man she recognizes as the boyfriend of one of her roommates. When she is assigned to write a feature on his life and mysterious death, Troy discovers he was the missing son of a wealthy Connecticut family. Trying to unravel what brought him to this Adirondack village, she joins forces with his girlfriend and his sister, who comes to town to find answers. But as Troy digs deeper, it’s clear someone doesn’t want the investigation to continue. And when she uncovers long-buried secrets that could shatter the serenity of the small town and many people’s lives, she’ll be forced to decide how far her own loyalties reach. “Sara J. Henry brilliantly draws us into a terrifying but ultimately affirmative novel in which love, friendship, and the shining truth about who we really are redeem an otherwise hopeless universe.” —Howard Frank Mosher, award-winning author of God’s Kingdom
