Written as an autobiography about the turbulent 1960's and set against the backdrop of the emerging rock music scene, drugs, political assassinations, and the Viet Nam war, Some Are Born to Endless Night explores Jim Morrison's vision of American society in the growing chaos of that decade and highlights the literature and revolutionary philosophies behind his lyrics as a singer with the Doors. Nearly 40 years after Morrison's death Kirstein undertakes a review of Morrison's songs that reflected his crumbling psychological profile. As a devotee of Morrison and the music of the Doors he explores the mindset of Morrison and his rich literary and philosophical origins that include insights from Aldous Huxley, William Blake, poet Arthur Rimbaud, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Norman O. Brown's interpretation of both Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud. Kirstein discusses Nietzsche's magnetic influence on Morrison, and he interprets for the reader how Morrison may have unconsciously intimated a prophecy of riots and destruction by fire in a future Los Angeles. The author pieces together an unusual narrative that traces the decline and fall of the United States as reflected in Morrison's songs, starting from the JFK assassination in 1963 to a point where we currently find ourselves in a parallel world four decades later. The book describes a sense of unease in America which launched Kirstein into a self-exile as an international drifter who is ultimately drawn to a remote river in South America called Xingu. For followers of Jim Morrison and the Doors this book provides a diverse cultural snapshot of 1960's America and illustrates Morrison's remarkable talent as a lyricist and visionary, helping to explain the ongoing interest in Morrison's legacy and continuing popularity of the Doors music.

Though usually classified as a Romantic, Blake subverts and dissolves the binaries on which Romanticism turns: self and other, art and nature, country and city. Rather than reject the city outright like many of his contemporaries, Blake embraces it as the intricate workshop of human imagination. Each chapter of this book focuses on a specific text of Blake's that illustrates a particular conception of metaphorical embodiment of the city. These shifting metaphors emphasize the construction of all human environments and the need for imaginative labor to build and interpret them. This study seeks to bridge a gap between transcendent and historicist readings of Blake while at the same time challenging assumptions that still color our view of the city in the twenty-first century. Jennifer Davis Michael is Associate Professor of English at the University of the South.

From Los Angeles Times Book Prize winner Kem Nunn and “principal heir to the tradition of Raymond Chandler and Nathanael West” (The Washington Post)—an intense psychological suspense novel about a San Francisco neuropsychiatrist who becomes sexually involved with a woman suffering from multiple personality disorder, whose pathological ex-husband is an Oakland homicide detective. A dark tale involving psychiatric mystery, sexual obsession, fractured identities, and terrifyingly realistic violence—Chance is set amid the back streets of California’s Bay Area, far from the cleansing breezes of the ocean. Dr. Eldon Chance, a neuropsychiatrist, is a man primed for spectacular ruin. Into Dr. Chance’s blighted life walks Jaclyn Blackstone, the abused, attractive wife of an Oakland homicide detective, a violent and jealous man. Jaclyn appears to be suffering from a dissociative identity disorder. In time, Chance will fall into bed with her—or is it with her alter ego, the voracious and volatile Jackie Black? The not-so-good doctor, despite his professional training, isn’t quite sure—and thereby hangs his fascination with her. Meanwhile, Chance also meets a young man named D, a self-styled, streetwise philosopher skilled in the art of the blade. It is around this trio of unique and dangerous individuals that long guarded secrets begin to unravel, obsessions grow, and the doctor’s carefully arranged life comes to the brink of implosion. Amid San Francisco’s fluid, ever-shifting fog, in the cool, gray city of love, Dr. Chance will at last be forced to live up to his name. Chance is a twisted, harrowing, and impossible-to-put-down head trip through the fun house of fate, mesmerizing until the very last page.

This title, first published in 1909, presents a selection of the most important essays by members of the renowned Browning Society, which existed to promulgate the works of and appreciation for perhaps the greatest English poet of the Victorian Age. Browning’s poetry deals with themes that are of perennial importance: the nature of the human person, human love, and the source of the love, God. Browning Studies will appeal to Browning enthusiasts and the message his writing communicates: "A profound, passionate, living, triumphant faith in Christ, and in the immortality and ultimate redemption of every human soul in and through Christ."

On Global Justice

Debates about global justice have traditionally fallen into two camps. Statists believe that principles of justice can only be held among those who share a state. Those who fall outside this realm are merely owed charity. Cosmopolitans, on the other hand, believe that justice applies equally among all human beings. On Global Justice shifts the terms of this debate and shows how both views are unsatisfactory. Stressing humanity's collective ownership of the earth, Mathias Risse offers a new theory of global distributive justice--what he calls pluralist internationalism--where in different contexts, different principles of justice apply. Arguing that statists and cosmopolitans seek overarching answers to problems that vary too widely for one single justice relationship, Risse explores who should have how much of what we all need and care about, ranging from income and rights to spaces and resources of the earth. He acknowledges that especially demanding redistributive principles apply among those who share a country, but those who share a country also have obligations of justice to those who do not because of a universal humanity, common political and economic orders, and a linked global trading system. Risse's inquiries about ownership of the earth give insights into immigration, obligations to future generations, and obligations arising from climate change. He considers issues such as fairness in trade, responsibilities of the WTO, intellectual property rights, labor rights, whether there ought to be states at all, and global inequality, and he develops a new foundational theory of human rights.

"Revolving Doors" is an adult, autobiographical novel in which 'Richard', now over sixty, recalls incidents of his nightmarish first five years of childhood, while fostered through 17 residences as a ward of Toronto's "S.W.York Co. Children's Aid Society." From his perspective and understanding as a small child, he shares details of memories of unspeakably perverse mistreatment, including perpetual abuse, torture and even rape. After years of counselling and treatment for ensuing, debilitating mental illnesses, 'Richard' experienced a "black-out," resulting in the sudden awareness of long-buried, traumatic memories. The Author, Ms. Ketteringham, graphically details her brother's incredible victimization/survival story by interweaving his recollections, and relentless nightmares, with documentation from the organizations involved. It is "Richard's" most sincere desire that his story of ultimate survival might encourage similar abuse victims who may be searching for hope in facing and fighting their own demons.

Imagine a suburb beneath the waves; contemplate the idea of palatial living in a pyramid amongst the stars. Codes Set in Stone embraces both of these somewhat grandiose scenarios in a story set in the not too distant future. Containing the essential ingredients of Relationship, Romance and Rescue, the novel tells of men on a mission to solve mysteries and investigate intrigue and skulduggery - a mission that takes them from Belgium to Venice to Rome to the Himalayas and back again and finally culminates in the discovery of an age-old promise contained in a revelatory book with its conundrum of a final code set in a bright, white, shining stone. It is interesting to note that several of the hitherto fictitious events in the story subsequently became fact after the initial manuscript first saw the light of day.
