Emma, Moving in with Jonathon Gold was a whole new wonderful life. It felt like I'd been plucked from another dimension and dropped into a carnal nirvana, with endless rabbit holes of exploration just waiting for me to tumble down them. And gladly I tumbled - until I wanted more. I wanted to be Head Girl, to service clients, especially when The Judge made enquiries for a day with a plaything. I thought I was strong enough. I thought I was on top of this newfound promiscuous game, but I was wrong. Jonathon Gold had demons in his closet. Thing is, Jonathon's closet turned out to be real, and if I really wanted to nail my man, really wanted to learn the art of the submissive and face The Judge and his perverted kinks, I'd have to live it first, in that sordid little room, and become Jonathon's toy for a day without a squeak of complaint. Then I'd face The Judge. Giving is receiving, so Jonathon tells me. I'm pretty sure I can do that. Jonathon, Emma Jane brings bubbly brightness to my world. She's sexy, gorgeous, naive and vulnerable, and her enthusiasm for her new life lifts me, really lifts me. I love her, my dirty girl, and I know in my heart it's a love that will last forever, but right now she's a rookie, an over-confident rookie. The best way for rookies to learn is to be thrown in at the deep end, is it not? And it couldn't get any deeper than The Judge - a man-mountain of depravity. The last time he visited, he took charge of the closet for a day of filthy debauchery, but the door to that seedy little hole has been locked for almost two years. Demons await me in that room, and demons either need to be purged or danced with, don't they? If Emma wants more, she has to earn it. And earn it she will when I unlock that door. Emma Jane must learn the art of the true submissive before she can become Head Girl, but Jonathon has demons to struggle with as he takes her down the steamy path to subservient bliss. Six Toy, by James Crow. ADVISORY: contains graphic depictions of kink, fetish and BDSM.

Orientalism

More than three decades after its first publication, Edward Said's groundbreaking critique of the West's historical, cultural, and political perceptions of the East has become a modern classic. In this wide-ranging, intellectually vigorous study, Said traces the origins of "orientalism" to the centuries-long period during which Europe dominated the Middle and Near East and, from its position of power, defined "the orient" simply as "other than" the occident. This entrenched view continues to dominate western ideas and, because it does not allow the East to represent itself, prevents true understanding. Essential, and still eye-opening, Orientalism remains one of the most important books written about our divided world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Radclyffe Hall (born Marguerite Radclyffe Hall on 12 August 1880 – 7 October 1943) was an English poet and author, best known for the novel The Well of Loneliness. The novel has become a groundbreaking work in lesbian literature. The Well of Loneliness is a 1928 lesbian novel by the British author Radclyffe Hall. It follows the life of Stephen Gordon, an Englishwoman from an upper-class family whose "sexual inversion" (homosexuality) is apparent from an early age. She finds love with Mary Llewellyn, whom she meets while serving as an ambulance driver in World War I, but their happiness together is marred by social isolation and rejection, which Hall depicts as having a debilitating effect on inverts. The novel portrays inversion as a natural, God-given state and makes an explicit plea: "Give us also the right to our existence".

The complex moral ambiguities of seduction and revenge make 'Les Liaisons dangereuses' (1782) one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. The subject of major film and stage adaptations, the novel's prime movers, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game - a game which they must win. Quotes from the book: “When one woman strikes at the heart of another, she seldom misses, and the wound is invariably fatal.” “Truth to tell, the longer I live, the more I'm tempted to think that the only moderately worthwhile people in the world are you and I.” “A man enjoys the happiness he feels, a woman the happiness she gives.” Readers' reviews: “I'm amazed, these two principal characters that are the very incarnations of malice have incredibly salient and correct anecdotes about love and the beauty of sex considering they use it to humiliate others.” (Tessa Concepcion, goodreads.com) “Only a country like France, which takes sex seriously with a smile, as Britain does snobbery with a snoot, could produce this ironic novel.” (Sketchbook, goodreads.com) “I think it was Kierkegaard who advised to be aware of entangling alliances. The web of sin in this book is masterfully woven as letters to frame-up an epistolary novel in which each character's letters speak volumes about the characters themselves.” (Robert Lentz, goodreads.com)

The endearing Anton claims that Hannah is his mother... and that her dead brother Ernst is his father.

After the Crisis

What effects will the current economic crisis have on the long-term development of our societies? What does the future hold in store when we emerge from the crisis? These two questions lie at the heart of this important new book by the leading French sociologist Alain Touraine. In an era dominated by the global economy and the triumph of individualism, our society has broken away from the old model of integration in place since the industrial revolution. We no longer see ourselves as players in an economic system around which every aspect of society is ordered but rather as individuals with our own rights, capable of creating our own lives in a world in which cultural values prevail. The financial crisis and the growing autonomy of speculative and financial imperatives have exacerbated the rift between the economy and society and could push this long-term tendency in either of two directions. On the one hand, individuals who find themselves unemployed, impoverished and stripped of their savings may feel increasingly excluded and incapable of reacting politically, which would explain the silence of many victims of the crisis. On the other hand, individuals could also find themselves transformed into social actors who are defined increasingly in moral and universal terms, in which case the crisis could help to precipitate a long-term cultural evolution. We are facing a future as yet undecided, a future hovering between catastrophe and radical reform. This book explores the factors that could tip the balance.
