Few people rode the popular wave of the sixties quite like Tara Browne. One of Swinging London's most popular faces, he lived fast, died young and was immortalized for ever in the opening lines of 'A Day in the Life', a song that many critics regard as The Beatles' finest. But who was John Lennon's lucky man who made the grade and then blew his mind out in a car? Author Paul Howard has pieced together the extraordinary story of a young Irishman who epitomized the spirit of the times: racing car driver, Vogue model, friend of The Rolling Stones, style icon, son of a peer, heir to a Guinness fortune and the man who turned Paul McCartney on to LSD. I Read the News Today, Oh Boy is the story of a child born into Ireland's dwindling aristocracy, who spent his early years in an ancient castle in County Mayo, and who arrived in London just as it was becoming the most exciting city on the planet. The Beatles and the Stones were about to conquer America, Carnaby Street was setting the style template for the world and rich and poor were rubbing shoulders in the West End in a new spirit of classlessness. Among young people, there was a growing sense that they could change the world. And no one embodied the ephemeral promise of London's sixties better than Tara Browne. Includes a sixteen-page plate section of stunning colour photographs.

In this broad-reaching, multi-disciplinary collection, leading scholars investigate how the digital medium has altered the way we read and write text. In doing so, it challenges the very notion of scholarship as it has traditionally been imagined. Incorporating scientific, socio-historical, materialist and theoretical approaches, this rich body of work explores topics ranging from how computers have affected our relationship to language, whether the book has become an obsolete object, the nature of online journalism, and the psychology of authorship. The essays offer a significant contribution to the growing debate on how digitization is shaping our collective identity, for better or worse. Text and Genre in Reconstruction will appeal to scholars in both the humanities and sciences and provides essential reading for anyone interested in the changing relationship between reader and text in the digital age.

Fasziniert stellen wir fest, dass die Songs unserer Jugend wie Lesezeichen und blitzende Überschriften in der Chronik unserer persönlichen Geschichte wirken. Songs, deren Stimmung und Texte unser Lebensgefühl manchmal besser ausdrückten, als wir selbst es je gekonnt hätten. Songs, von denen wir uns verstanden fühlten; Songs, die wir verstanden! Wirklich? Diese wilde Mischung aus englischen und amerikanischen Jugendslangs, anspruchsvollen Lyrikstücken, Insiderbegriffen aus der Sex- und Drogenszene, Anspielungen auf soziales, zeitgenössisches oder historisches Geschehen – war sie für uns damals überhaupt völlig zu entschlüsseln? Kaum möglich. Dieses Buch ist eine wahre Fundgrube zum richtigen sprachlichen und inhaltlichen Verständnis von mehr als 300 legendären Pop-, Folk- und Rocksongs der 60er- und 70er Jahre. Berücksichtigt wurden sowohl Songs, die es in diesen Jahren bis weit nach oben in die Charts schafften, ebenso wie Folk- und Rocksongs, die auch ohne großen Charts-Erfolg zu Legenden ihrer Musik-Ära wurden. Wenn in diesem Buch Titel wie "Imagine" oder "Yesterday" nicht erwähnt werden, dann liegt das ausschließlich daran, dass diese wunderbaren Lieder gar keine erklärungsbedürftigen Textpassagen aufweisen.

As he saw his 50th birthday approaching, Chris Brady realised things had to change. When his children wouldnt leave home, he and his wife did. This is the story of the huge gamble they took, uprooting themselves from the security of a job and home on the idyllic Waiheke Island (population 7000) in New Zealands Hauraki Gulf, and moving half way around the world to London (population, 12 million). There Chris explored the UK and Europe with the passion and enthusiasm of a twenty-year old. As an historian, he delighted in finding everything from pre-historic ruins to twentieth century icons, most notably the Abbey Rd crossing! And just to prove that old gits can do anything, after three years away, Chris and his wife came home in style. The book details their camping trip through the UK, their trip around Europe, and finally, their epic journey on the Trans-Siberian railway.

In an effort to make sense of war beyond the battlefield in studying the wars that were captured under the rubric of the "War on Terror", this special issue book seeks to explore the complex spatial relationships between war and the spaces that one is not used to thinking of as the battlefield. It focuses on the conflicts that still animate the spaces and places where violence has been launched and that the war has not left untouched. In focusing on war beyond the battlefield, it is not that the battlefield as the place where war is waged has gone in smoke or has borne out of importance, it is rather the case that the battlefield has been dis-placed, re-designed, re-shaped and rethought through new spatializing practices of warfare. These new spaces of war – new in the sense that they are not traditionally thought of as spaces where war takes place or is brought to – are television screens, cellular phones and bandwidth, George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, videogames, popular culture sites, news media, blogs, and so on. These spaces of war beyond the battlefield are crucial to understanding what goes on the battlefield, in Iraq, Afghanistan, or in other fronts of the War on Terror (such as the homeland) – to understand how terror has globally been waged beyond the battlefield. This book was originally published as a special issue of Geopolitics.

Twisting the buddy cop story upside down and inside out, Penn Jillette has created the most distinctive narrator to come along in fiction in many years: a sock monkey called Dickie. The sock monkey belongs to a New York City police diver who discovers the body of an old lover in the murky waters of the Hudson River and sets off with her best friend to find her killer. The story of their quest swerves and veers, takes off into philosophical riffs, occasionally stops to tell a side story, and references a treasure trove of 1970's and 1980's pop culture. Sock is a surprising, intense, fascinating piece of work.
