• A frank, fierce and insightful memoir of a young girl’s path to womanhood, via many homes • From her stateless childhood in Zambia and Kenya and her college years in North America, to her return to South Africa in the euphoric 1990s and her adult life in Australia, Sisonke Msimang’s memoir is a candid and moving story of survival told through a global lens • With razor-sharp insight, Sisonke untangles the threads of race, class and gender so prominent in the fabric of her own life, all the way from the ugly face of racism in apartheid South Africa to the xenophobia of her newfound home in Perth • Deeply personal, Always Another Country is a moving portrait of Sisonke’s own life journey and all the romance, heartache and grief that has helped to make her the writer, activist, mother and woman she is today • Uncompromising, angry and hopeful, Sisonke represents a bold new voice on feminism, race and politics, in the tradition of Arundhati Roy, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Maxine Beneba Clarke • Sisonke is well known in the Australian writing community, having previously appeared at various literary festivals and events.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions--sexual, racial, political, artistic--that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime.

"Always Another Horizon is well written and a delightful way to spend a winter's evening or a rainy day." -Santana Magazine Full of rich detail and intriguing insight, Always Another Horizon: A Journey Around the World tells the story of one couple's voyage around the globe. For nearly eight years, author Tina Olton and her husband, Steve Salmon, sailed around the world on their forty-foot, ocean-going sailboat, Another Horizon. In that time, they traveled 45,000 miles, visited sixty-one countries, and crossed three oceans as well as countless seas, canals, lakes, and rivers. From Berkeley, California, the couple cast off their dock lines to head west through the Golden Gate. The whole world was before them-the ultimate traveler's dream. From the rich beauty of French Polynesia on Easter Sunday to the whitewashed beaches of Greece, Olton and Salmon embraced the world and its diversity. But the voyage also forced the couple to examine the limits of their determination, their ability to endure hardship, their tolerance for other people-regardless of behavior or beliefs-and their good will toward each other. Olton and Salmon soon realized that the journey would have a profound impact on their lives-or bring them to their knees. For maps and photos, see www.AlwaysAnotherHorizon.com.

This book aims to reinvigorate the Marxist project and the role it might play in illuminating the way beyond capitalism. Though political economy and scientific investigation are needed for pure Marxism, Martin’s argument is that the extent to which these elements are needed cannot be determined within the conversations of political economy and other investigations into causal mechanisms. What has not been done, and what this book does, is to argue for the possibility of a rethought Marxism that takes ethics as its core, displacing political economy and "scientific" investigation.

The fear and violence that followed the events of September 11, 2001 touched lives all around the world, even in places that few would immediately associate with the global war on terror. In At the Limits of Justice, twenty-nine contributors from six countries explore the proximity of terror in their own lives and in places ranging from Canada and the United States to Jamaica, Palestine/Israel, Australia, Guyana, Chile, Pakistan, and across the African continent. In this collection, female scholars of colour – including leading theorists on issues of indigeneity, race, and feminism – examine the political, social, and personal repercussions of the war on terror through contributions that range from testimony and poetry to scholarly analysis. Inspired by both the personal and the global impact of this violence within the war on terror, they expose the way in which the war on terror is presented as a distant and foreign issue at the same time that it is deeply present in the lives of women and others all around the world. An impassioned but rigorous examination of issues of race and gender in contemporary politics, At the Limits of Justice is also a call to create moral communities which will find terror and violence unacceptable.
