Smith, Chris (Editor), author
New York : Grand Central Publishing, 2016

It launched the careers of some of today's most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys. Now, for the first time, the people behind the show's seminal moments come together to share their memories of one of America's most groundbreaking shows.--

Lucas went on to develop the Indiana Jones series, and then transformed the worlds of special effects and movie sound. His entire career has been stimulated by innovators-- and Jones provides a behind-the-scenes look at the man who is as unmatched as his unforgettable characters.

Settle for more
Kelly, Megyn, author
New York, NY : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, [2016]
Television journalist Megyn Kelly reflects on the enduring values and experiences that have shaped her -- from growing up in a family that rejected the "trophies for everyone" mentality, to her father's sudden, tragic death while she was in high school. She goes behind the scenes of her career, sharing the stories and struggles that landed her in the anchor chair of cable's #1 news show. Speaking candidly about her decision to "settle for more," Megyn discusses how she abandoned a thriving legal career to follow her journalism dreams. Megyn sheds light on the news business, her time at Fox News, the challenges of being a professional woman and working mother, and her most talked about television moments. She also speaks openly about Donald Trumps feud with her, revealing never-before-heard details about the first Republican debate, its difficult aftermath, and how she persevered through it all.

The Verso book of dissent : revolutionary words from three millennia of rebellion and resistance
preface by Tariq Ali ; edited by Andrew Hsiao and Audrea Lim
London : Verso, 2016
"Throughout the ages and across every continent, people have struggled against those in power and raised their voices in protest-rallying others around them or, sometimes, inspiring uprisings many years later. Their echoes reverberate from Ancient Greece, China and Egypt, via the dissident poets and philosophers of Islam and Judaism, through to the Arab slave revolts and anti-Ottoman rebellions of the Middle Ages. These sources were tapped during the Dutch and English revolutions at the outset of the Modern world, and in turn flowed into the French, Haitian, American, Russian and Chinese revolutions. More recently, resistance to war and economic oppression has flared up on battlefields and in public spaces from Beijing and Cairo to Moscow and New York City. This anthology, global in scope, presents voices of dissent from every era of human history: speeches and pamphlets, poems and songs, plays and manifestos. Every age has its iconoclasts, and yet the greatest among them build on the words and actions of their forerunners. The Verso Book of Dissent should be in the arsenal of every rebel who understands that words and ideas are the ultimate weapons."--Publisher's website.

Cowboy classics : the roots of the American western in the epic tradition
Day, Kirsten, 1969- author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, ©2016
Prologue -- Introduction: Western film and the epic tradition -- Howard Hawk's Red River -- Fred Zinnemann's High noon -- George Steven's Shane -- John Ford's The searchers -- John Ford's The man who shot Liberty Valance -- Conclusion.

In the American psyche, the Wild West is a mythic-historical place where the nation's values and ideologies were formed. In this violent and uncertain world, the cowboy is the ultimate hero, fighting the bad guys, forging notions of manhood, and delineating what constitutes honor as he works to build civilization out of wilderness. Tales from this mythical place are best known from that most American of media: film. In the Greco-Roman societies that form the foundation of Western civilization, similar narratives were presented in what for them was the most characteristic, and indeed most filmic, genre: epic. Like Western film, the epics of Homer and Virgil focus on the mythichistorical past and its warriors who worked to establish the ideological framework of their respective civilizations. Through a close reading of films like High Noon and Shane, Kirsten Day examines the surprising connections between these seemingly disparate yet closely related genres.

Lifestyle TV
Ouellette, Laurie
New York, NY : Routledge, 2016
Introduction -- Branding lifestyle -- The self as project -- Governing citizens -- The labor of lifestyle -- Performing difference.

'Lifestyle TV' analyses a burgeoning array of lifestyle formats on network and cable channels, from how-to and advice programmes to hybrid reality entertainment built around the cultivation of the self as project, the ethics of everyday life, the mediation of style and taste, the regulation of health and the body, and the performance of identity and 'difference'. The author situates these formats historically, arguing that the lifestyling of television ultimately signals more than the television industry's turn to cost-cutting formats, niche markets, and specialised demographics. Rather, she argues that the surge of reality programming devoted to the achievement and display of lifestyle practices and choices must also be situated within broader socio-historical changes in capitalist democracies.

Burbank, CA : DC Comics, [2016]
Sheriff of Babylon -- The things they left behind -- Here's looking at you -- The dream and the desert -- From the cradle -- God shed his grace on thee.

"Baghdad, 2003. The War on Terror has been raging for two years. Iraq's capital city has been devastated, and without a police force to keep its citizens safe. In an effort to establish some semblance of order in the war-torn city, Florida cop-turned-military consultant Chris Henry has been assigned to train a new group of cadets who will take up the cause of law enforcement. But even those with good intentions are not immune to the chaos found in the post-9/11 Middle East. When one of Henry's trainees is found dead, he's forced to align himself with Nassir, the last policeman in Baghdad to try to unravel the bloody mystery that's already claimed one life. While Henry and Nassir search for answers there are forces in the shadows pulling strings that these men don't even know they're tied to. With a wonderfully brutal script by Tom King (GRAYSON, THE OMEGA MEN) and devastatingly beautiful art by Mitch Gerads (The Punisher, The Activity), this wartime crime drama takes you deep into the underworld of the city of Baghdad in one of the most tumultuous times in modern history"--

The cinema of Lucrecia Martel
Martin, Deborah (Professor), author
Manchester [UK] : Manchester University Press, 2016
The cinema of Lucrecia Martel provides a comprehensive analysis of the work of the acclaimed Argentine director, whose elusive and elliptical feature films have garnered worldwide recognition since her 2001 debut 'La Ciénaga.' The book situates Martel's features and unstudied short films in relation to trends in recent national and international filmmaking. This volume considers existing critical work on Martel's oeuvre, and proposes new ways of understanding it, in particular through desire, the use of the child's perspective, and through the senses and perception.

Ordinary television : analyzing popular TV
Bonner, Frances
Thousand Oaks, Calif. : Sage Publications, 2003
"Ordinary Television offers a new angle on a key area of research and teaching across media and cultural studies - the content of television and the relations between television genres and audiences. Most books on television focus on drama, or news and current affairs. In other words, they tend to ignore 'ordinary' television - game shows, lifestyle programmes and 'reality TV', just the sort of programmes that are increasingly dominating the schedules." "Frances Bonner makes a distinctive argument for regarding these disparate shows as a whole. By examining a substantial range of these programmes, Bonner uncovers their shared characteristics and considers the dominant and disguised discourses that pervade them. In addition, the comparative nature of her study enables the author to launch a powerful critique of conventional theories in relation to the globalisation of television. This book will be invaluable reading for anyone interested in television and the media in general."--BOOK JACKET.

Bourdieu and postcolonial studies
edited by Raphael Dalleo
Liverpool : Liverpool University Press, 2016
Postcolonial studies has taken a significant turn since 2000 from the post-structural focus on language and identity of the 1980s and 1990s to more materialist and sociological approaches. A key theorist in inspiring this innovative new scholarship has been Pierre Bourdieu. Bourdieu and Postcolonial Studies shows the emergence of this strand of postcolonialism through collecting texts that pioneered this approach—by Graham Huggan, Chris Bongie, and Sarah Brouillette—as well as emerging scholarship that follows the path these critics have established. This Bourdieu-inspired work examines the institutions that structure the creation, dissemination, and reception of world literature; the foundational values of the field and its sometimes ambivalent relationship to the popular; and the ways concepts like habitus, cultural capital, consecration and anamnesis can be deployed in reading postcolonial texts. Topics include explorations of the institutions of the field such as the B.B.C.’s Caribbean voices program and the South African publishing industry; analysis of Bourdieu’s fieldwork in Algeria during the decolonization era; and comparisons between Bourdieu’s work and alternative versions of literary sociology such as Pascale Casanova’s and Franco Moretti’s. The sociological approach to literature developed in the collected essays shows how, even if the commodification of postcolonialism threatens to neutralize the field’s potential for resistance and opposition, a renewed project of postcolonial critique can be built in the contaminated spaces of globalization.

Deleuze's Cinema books : three introductions to the taxonomy of images
Deamer, David, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
Gilles Deleuze's two Cinema books create a myriad of philosophical concepts to explore films. This cineosis is like a Russian doll or a Chinese box - proliferating levels of regimes, domains, images and signs. Not only bewildering in number, Deleuze's writing procedures mean his exegesis is composed of paradoxes and silences. Three questions emerge: What are the underlying principles for the creation of these concepts? How many concepts are there? How might each be used in engaging with a film? Commentators have, wholly or in part, left these questions unanswered; instead focusing on the Cinema books place within Deleuze's wider philosophical project. This book is the first to fully respond to the three questions - explicating/unearthing the taxonomies; exploring every concept; and reading a film for each. It maps the Cinema books for newcomers to Deleuzian film studies and opens up new areas of enquiry for expert readers.

Eric Rohmer, filmmaker and philosopher
Hösle, Vittorio, 1960- author
Sydney : Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2016
Rohmer is one of the most popular French directors of the second half of the 20th century. One of the members of the famous Nouvelle Vague that reconstituted French cinema based on the theoretical principles articulated in the Cahiers du Cinema, he was fired when as a conservative Catholic he opposed its turn toward politicization. Like some of his colleagues, Rohmer is extremely interested in both the history and the philosophy of film. Brother of the noted French philosopher Rene Scherer, he begins his career as a film critic. In his films, deep moral conflicts as well as the search for one's own identity emerge from the intricacies of seemingly superficial everyday life interactions, particularly between a man and a woman. Hosle's book puts Rohmer in the context of a long French tradition of reflected eroticism, with Marivaux, Musset, Stendhal, and Jean Renoir as crucial figures, and shows how Rohmer both recognizes the inner logic of eroticism and subjects it to moral demands that he inherits from his Catholic background. For Rohmer, the tension between the two can usually only be solved by some unexpected event that can be interpreted as an equivalent of grace.

Deciding what's true : the rise of political fact-checking in American journalism
Graves, Lucas, 1970- author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2016]
Part 1. The landscape of fact-checking -- Introduction -- Ink-stained fact-checkers -- Objectivity, truth seeking, and institutional facts -- Part 2. The work of fact-checking -- Choosing facts to check -- Deciding what's true -- Operating the truth-o-meter -- Part 3. The effects of fact-checking -- Fact-checkers and their publics -- The limits of fact-checking -- Epilogue.

Over the past decade, American outlets such as PolitiFact,, and the Washington Post's Fact Checker have shaken up the political world by holding public figures accountable for what they say. Cited across social and national news media, these verdicts can rattle a political campaign and send the White House press corps scrambling. Yet fact-checking is a fraught kind of journalism, one that challenges reporters' traditional roles as objective observers and places them at the center of white-hot, real-time debates. As these journalists are the first to admit, in a hyperpartisan world, facts can easily slip into fiction, and decisions about which claims to investigate and how to judge them are frequently denounced as unfair play.

The chant of Jimmie Blacksmith
Reynolds, Henry, 1938-
Sydney, N.S.W. : Australian Film Commission, National Film & Sound Archive, 2008
"On its release in 1978, Fred Schepisi's The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith confronted audiences with a depiction of violence, racism and exploitation in the harsh Australian outback. Based on Thomas Keneally's award-winning novel, the film is a dramatisation of the real-life story of Jimmy Governor, the part-Aboriginal bushranger hanged for multiple murders in 1901. A vision of rage and revenge striking out against an unjust and intolerant society, the film brought sharply into focus issues of race and identity in Australian society." "In this compelling critique, Henry Reynolds explores the difficult relationship between fiction and history. Reynolds views The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith in its political and historical context, and examines the ways in which a study of Australian cinema is also a study of Australian social issues."--Back cover.

Landscapes of decadence : literature and place at the fin de siécle
Murray, Alex, 1980- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
"The challenges posed by Decadence to Victorian moral conventions - particularly sexual - have been well documented, but this book makes the case for understanding Decadence as a response to the ways in which place was accorded moral value in the period. The book uses landscape as a key trope for exploring Decadent writing's approach to location and identity. Drawing on a wide range of fin de siecle literature organised around a series of locations from Naples to New York, Murray argues that Decadent writers developed a form of landscape and place-based writing using a series of stylistic features to challenge the increasing homogenisation of both place and literary culture. Decadence and the literature of the fin de siecle are re-framed as a politically-engaged form of landscape writing. This is an ambitious and richly researched study."

Buddhism and American cinema
edited by John Whalen-Bridge and Gary Storhoff ; foreword by Danny Rubin

Lutz: Buddhism and authenticity in Oliver Stone's Heaven and earth -- Eve mullen: Buddhism, children, and the childlike in American Buddhist films -- Jiayan Mi and Jason C. Toncic: Consuming Tibet: Imperial romance and the wretched of holy plateau -- Felicia Chan: Politics into aesthetics: cultural translation in Kundun, Seven years in Tibet and The cup -- Allegories of shadow and light. Jennifer l. McMahon and B. Steve Csaki: Momentarily lost: finding the moment in Lost in translation -- Richard C. Anderson and David A. Harper: Dying to be free: the emergence of "American militant Buddhism" in popular culture -- Karsten J. Struhl: Buddhism, our desperation, and American cinema -- Devin Harner: Christian allegory, Buddhism and Bardo in Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko -- David l. Smith: "Beautiful necessities": American beauty and the idea of freedom -- Postscript -- Gary Gach: Afterword: on being luminous.

In 1989, the same year the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, a decade-long boom of films dedicated to Buddhist people, history, and culture began. Offering the first scholarly treatment of Buddhism and cinema, the editors advise that there are two kinds of Buddhist film: those that are about Buddhists and those that are not. Focusing on contemporary American offerings, the contributors extend a two-pronged approach, discussing how Buddhism has been captured by directors and presenting Buddhist-oriented critiques of the worlds represented in films that would seem to have no connection with Buddhism. Films discussed range from those set in Tibet, such as Kundun and Lost Horizon, to those set well outside of any Buddhist milieu, such as Groundhog Day and The Matrix. The contributors explain the Buddhist theoretical concepts that emerge in these works, including karma, the bardo, and reincarnation, and consider them in relation to interpretive strategies that include feminism, postcolonialism, and contemplative psychological approaches. --Publisher website.

"Terry McDonell has top-edited some of the most influential publications in American journalism. His new book pulls back the curtain on his four-decade career as an editor, journalist, and media entrepreneur, with stops at more than a dozen magazines: from the launch of Outside through tenures at Rolling Stone, Newsweek, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, and, most recently, cofounding the literary website LitHub. McDonell lays out the realities between editors and writers with deadlines ticking, or with drinks on the bar. His stories about the journalists, writers, and media personalities he has known can be both heartbreaking and bitingly funny--playing "acid golf " with Hunter S. Thompson, practicing brinksmanship with David Carr and Steve Jobs, working the European fashion scene with Liz Tilberis, pitching TV pilots with Richard Price. Here, too, is an insider's practical advice on how to recruit--and keep--high-profile talent; how to craft a compelling lede; how to grow online traffic that translates into dollars; and how, in whatever format, on whatever platform, a good editor really works. Taking us from the raucous days of New Journalism to today's digital landscape, McDonell argues that the demand for storytelling from trustworthy news sources keeps getting stronger. A celebration of the pressures, obsessions, and satisfactions of a writing and editing life."--Book jacket.

Queer horror film and television : sexuality and masculinity at the margins
Elliott-Smith, Darren, author
New York : I.B. Tauris, 2016
In recent years, the representation of alternative sexuality in the horror film and television has 'outed' itself from the shadows from which it once lurked via the embrace of an outrageously queer horror aesthetic where homosexuality is often unequivocally referenced. In this book, Darren Elliott-Smith departs from the analysis of the monster as a symbol of heterosexual anxiety and fear, and moves to focus instead on queer fears and anxieties within gay male subcultures. Furthermore, he examines the works of significant queer horror film and television producers and directors to reveal gay men's anxieties about: acceptance and assimilation into Western culture, the perpetuation of self-loathing and gay shame, and further anxieties surrounding associations shameful femininity. This book focuses mainly on representations of masculinity and gay male spectatorship in queer horror film and television post-2000. In titling this sub-genre 'queer horror', Elliott-Smith designates horror that is crafted by male directors/producers who self-identify as gay, bi, queer or transgendered and whose work features homoerotic, or explicitly homosexual, narratives with 'out' gay characters.
