Sweet Embraceable You (eBook, ePUB)

"Couples," and the changing nature of two people coupling, is the running theme of the eight tales in Sweet Embraceable You: Coffee-House Stories.These Embraceable stories include the "fast-read" of Coming Attractions, a four-person one-act comedy that you and another couple could read out loud for a hoot after supper. For readers who have never had the chance to read an actual screenplay, Duchess: Berlin 1928 reads so clearly, you can see, on the movie-screen in your head, everyones favorite fairy-tale heroine, the lost Grand Duchess Anastasia escaping lovers and villains in the streets of Berlin, two steps ahead of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. In fact, Duchess is a "film noir" story of a person refusing to couple when coupling means losing one's identity.The author, a true humanist, in these stories celebrates women who are coupled as mothers, wives, and friends. The son-mother-grandmother story, "Silent Mothers, Silent Sons," sews up a heart-breaking tale of how silence equals death, and, worse-before death-loneliness and isolation, because no one dares speak the secret that lies beneath nearly every family.All these stories are so vividly cinematic that the eight of them are like going into a Cineplex 8 and changing theaters to see all eight films for one admission. "The Barber of 18th and Castro" reads like Hitchcock, as the odd couple, a barber and a perhaps-serial-killer hustler, jostle suspensefully for power at the corner of 18th and Castro in San Francisco. "The Story Knife" tells the independent-film version of a handsome Catholic priest's reawakened sense of desire for a cabin-boy from Genoa; set on a cruise ship heading north to Alaska. In "Mrs. Dalloway," this coupling theme "triangulates" among the mother, the son, and the son's lover, with everyone refusing to surrender; yet the three arrive, through same-gender marriage, at a healing sense of family. Author Jack Fritscher, celebrates gay couples in this breathless autobiographical story, "Mrs. Dalloway Went That-A-Way." In "The Unseen Hand in the Lavender Light," a young boy grows up in a movie theater surrealistically powered by Hollywood images of coupling which make him finally explode.Fritscher is the best kind of author: one who disappears behind his well-developed characters, dialog, and plots. The diverse stories range from edgy to nostalgic, comic to romantic. The "voice" of the storyteller is pure entertainment without agenda. The style of the writing is lustrous. The author edits himself down to the polished bone, so that every word, every rhythm, every comma propels the feeling of the story. Sweet Embraceable You is recommended for travel, beach, and bedside reading.

Sport, Protest and Globalisation

This volume is built around three assumptions - first, that for huge numbers people around the world, including many sport lovers, there are more important things in life than sport, second, that the governance of sport is in many ways problematic and needs to be confronted, and, third, that contrary to the still-popular belief that sport and politics don't mix, sport often provides an ideal theatre for the enacting of political protest. The book contains studies of a range of protests, stretching back to the death of suffragist Emily Davison at the Derby of 1913 and encompassing subsequent protests against the exclusion of women from the sporting arena, the Berlin Olympics of 1936, Western imperialism, the Mexico Olympics, 1968, the state racism of apartheid in South Africa, the effect of the global golf industry on ecosystems, Israeli government policy, resistance to the various attempts to bring the Olympic Games to Canadian and American cities, the cutting of welfare benefits for disabled British citizens, class privilege in the UK, Russian anti-gay laws, and high public spending on sport mega-events in Brazil. The collection will be of interest to scholars and students with an interest in Sports Studies, History, Politics, Geography, Cultural Studies and Sociology.

Class War, USA: Dispatches from Workers' Strugg...

'Brandon Weber knows how to tell a good story, and he has a knack for labor history. There are stories here you've never heard of and ones that you have — but read them all. They'll light a fire under you!' -Mrill Ingram, The Progressive 'At a time when unions face the possibility of extinction, Brandon Weber’s Class War, USA shows us that working-class struggle is the only strategy that has ever advanced the labor movement historically—and is also the only way forward today. This book is indispensable reading for today’s generation of young workers who—through no fault of their own—have no knowledge of the US working class’ vast tradition of struggle, or its relevance for the future. At the same time, Class War, USA is just as valuable for those who have withstood the relentless assault on unions over the last four decades—and will undoubtedly find tremendous inspiration in the history Weber so convincingly tells. It is also worth noting that Weber also recounts the stories of working-class struggles far beyond the realm of the official union movement, including the Stonewall Rebellion that launched the gay liberation movement in 1969 and the Attica prison uprising in 1971. At fewer than 150 pages, written in accessible language, illustrated with an abundance of original photographs, this book should be on the coffee tables of all those invested in returning to a tradition of class struggle in the US.' -Sharon Smith, author of Subterranean Fire   'Brandon Weber’s Class War USA isn’t just a retelling of well-known and not-so-well-known strikes. Weber has done for a new generation of social and labor activists what Sid Lens did for an earlier one: bring to life the hard scrabble union, social, and political struggles of working class people from the past to the present. And by the way, in case you ever wondered why Woody Guthrie’s 'This Land is Your Land' never became the national anthem, Weber has the answer.' -Kim Moody, a founder of Labor Notes and author of On New Terrain: How Capital is Reshaping the Battleground of Class War   'Brandon Weber does a masterful job at succinctly bringing to life many gripping and insightful episodes from the rich history of American labor, allowing readers to draw invaluable lessons for today’s struggles. Yes, this was, and is, class war. In his colorful collection, Weber vividly shows that people working together can, against all odds in a culture that fetishizes individualism, bring about social progress. Now, let’s get these stories and lessons into the hands of those who buy into the  prevailing divisiveness and tribalism, so that they too can unite across racial, ethnic, gender and other barriers and be heard!'  -Dr. Thomas Greven, Freie Universität Berlin/Germany “[Class War, USA is] a brave attempt to focus attention on a subject, the need for strong unions, at a time when too many people appear to be dissatisfied with their situations, but don’t want to commit themselves to organisations which could help to resolve their problems.”—Northern Review of Books
