Ranging over a rich variety of material from film and film literature, and encompassing a critical interrogation of traditional realist ethnographic and cinematic texts, this book highlights the extent to which the cinema has contributed to the rise of voyeurism throughout society. The cinema not only turns its audience into voyeurs, eagerly following the lives of its screen characters, but casts its key players as onlookers, spying on other's lives. The nature of the cinematic voyeur is examined in depth, as are its implications for contemporary society. Norman K Denzin analyzes Hollywood's manipulations of gender, race and class, and, drawing on the work of Foucault, argues that the cinematic gaze must be understood as pa

"Atlantis: Cherished Gem" is the sequel to "Atlantis: Precious Stone" and is the chronicle of events which occur following the destruction of Atlantis and AurL's withdrawal of the Projection. The Atlanteans, who had hoped to regain the Formative World of Yetzirah on board the magical Mnemonotron, regain stunned consciousness to find themselves dwelling within the submerged Lens that they had programmed during the Projection, there discovering that their Magnum Opus for Atlantis is destined to continue upon Assiyatic Terra in the coming epochs. To the dismay of Lynci, Tym, and their Diamond Classmates, they learn that dissension prevails among the Adepts and Aspirants at the Temple of Avalyn while Satyron and his minions remain evilly active at the Iridium Fountain and elsewhere in the Material World. The loyal Initiates are required therefore to employ their magical skills diligently in the endeavor to manifest AurL's design for Terra despite intense opposition from his opponents.

Will Self, whom the Los Angeles Times calls “the hottest young novelist in England,” demonstrates his razor-sharp wit in these nine new stories. Self’s method depends upon taking an ordinary aspect of the world and then pushing it to its limit in furious absurdity. The short stories in Grey Area reflect the technical brilliance and satiric voice that have made him one of the most highly praised comic writers in a decade. These are stories that delve into the modern psyche with unsettling and darkly satiric results. “Inclusion®” tells the story of a doctor who is illegally testing a new antidepressant made from bee excrement. “A Short History of the English Novel” brings us face to face with a pompous publisher who is greeted at every turn by countless rejected authors. In “The End of the Relationship” a woman who has been left by her boyfriend provokes—“like some emotional Typhoid Mary”—that same reaction among all the couples she goes to for comfort. The narrator of “Between the Conceits” declares without hesitation that London is controlled by only eight individuals, and, thankfully, he is one of them. Self’s world in these pieces is both curiously familiar and hauntingly strange. Published to critical acclaim in England, Grey Area is a dazzling collection by one of the most talented and original writers of his generation.

On January 7, 1980, in the run-up to the publication of his landmark bestseller Thy Neighbor’s Wife, Gay Talese received an anonymous letter from a man in Colorado. “Since learning of your long awaited study of coast-to-coast sex in America,” the letter began, “I feel I have important information that I could contribute to its contents or to contents of a future book.” The man went on to tell Talese an astonishing secret, that he had bought a motel to satisfy his voyeuristic desires. He had built an attic “observation platform,” fitted with vents, through which he could peer down on his unwitting guests. Unsure what to make of this confession, Talese traveled to Colorado where he met the man—Gerald Foos—verified his story in person, and read some of his extensive journals, a secret record of America’s changing social and sexual mores. But because Foos insisted on remaining anonymous, Talese filed his reporting away, assuming the story would remain untold. Now, after thirty-five years, he’s ready to go public and Talese can finally tell his story. The Voyeur’s Motel is an extraordinary work of narrative journalism, at once a portrait of one complicated man, and an examination of secret lives and shifting mores in a culturally-evolving country.

Contemporary literary theory, though it sometimes embraces the values of performance has rarely addressed the concerns of the professional performer. The Actor's Instrument: Body, Theory, Stage reinterprets performance at a theoretical level and applies theory to acting problems in the attempt to offer new options to the professional artist. Hollis Huston scrutinizes with a highly theoretical eye the specific and practical problems of performance, believing that such philosophical thinking will enable artists to reappropriate the powers of the theatrical art. Huston challenges the notion that the director is the central figure in theater. Drawing on theater history and architecture, on contemporary corporeal research, on philosophies of text and representation, and on his experience in the acting studio, he shows that the director's theater is only one of many ways in which theater might be organized. The Actor's Instrument challenges directors, theater scholars and artists to see theater in a larger context. It offers the acting teacher a new physiological interpretation of the performer's breathing, as it supports voice, movement, role, and the spectator's attention. It describes the performance contract, as it is seen most simply in street theater, and speculates on what a performer's theater might be like. The book also offers a poetics of the central stage and suggests a new way of writing about performance.
