Description : Tapping into the rich seam of anarchist and libertarian currents in noir fiction, this collection of essays explores fictional atmospheres that are dark and sinister—but not without hope. The protagonists of these works are often profoundly flawed but have something of the romantic optimist about them—men and women driven to face moral challenges and to do battle with the forces of evil or banality. Among the authors discussed are Stig Dagerman, Andre Helena, Leo Malet, George Navel, Jean-Marc Raynaud, Leda Rafanelli, B. Traven, and Simone Weil. Also included are an analysis by Agustin Guillamon of Miguel Mir’sEntre El Roig I El Negre, Massimo Ortalli's discussion ofThe Regeneration of an Anarchist, and essays by Simon Watson Taylor and Stephen Schwartz on the relationship between surrealism and anarchism.

Description : It is the year 2130 and the sporting entertainment business has changed dramatically. Gone are the days of basketball, baseball, and even boxing. All traditional sports have disappeared and in the mass technological age, the only interest in the public’s eyes is Arena. A no holds barred fighting championship, Arena has spread throughout the earth like wild fire. The Arena Empire is run by the new owner General Drober, an ambitious and avaricious man who wants to change the face of the industry. He believes the viewing public wants to see more intense fighting; there is a real blood lust. But Drober’s plan could not easily come into fruition. Standing in his way is the ageing champion, Zodiac. A contract between the two of them also seems to be a stumbling point. Zodiac needs to complete his one hundredth fight; General Drober needs him to lose and he needs to eradicate anybody in the industry that knows about ‘the contract’, as well.A fighter with very few allies—only his chief medical officer Millie gives him any real support—, Zodiac must be determined in fulfilling his destiny and make the contract come to light. Will the strength of his body, wisdom of his mind, and sincerity of his heart be able to do this? Or will the tyrannical reign of General Drober become the reality of the future? Readers will find out as pulse-racing, heart-stopping events unfold in the pages of ARENA: End of an Era.

American has been decimated, wiped out from the second Civil War. In this post-apocalyptic world, survivors are far and few between. And most of those who do survive are members of the violent gangs, predators who live in the big cities.

The slaverunners take her away, heading to the city, and to what will be a certain death. Brooke, a Marine’s daughter, was raised to be tough, to never back down from a fight. When her sister is taken, Brooke mobilizes, uses everything at her disposal to chase down the slaverunners and get her sister back.

Description : "A vigorous call-to-arms to reignite American citizenship at home and restore American power abroad, using the timeless truths of Teddy Roosevelt's iconic 'Man in the Arena' speech, by the Fox News contributor and decorated Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran. Pete Hegseth makes an impassioned and experiential argument for how Teddy Roosevelt's articulation of 'good citizens, ' 'equality of opportunity, ' and unapologetic U.S. leadership--'good patriots'--can renew our imperiled American experiment and save the free world, in this fascinating, first-hand challenge to elite progressivism, ahistorical foreign policy, and status-quo politics. Despite contention surrounding Teddy Roosevelt's legacy, Hegseth argues that the Rough Rider's exhortation serves as a timeless wake-up call for our Republic. Hegseth resurrects Roosevelt's famous 'Citizenship in a Republic' address--best known for the 'Man in the Arena' quote--as a roadmap for addressing the massive challenges facing America today. In order to rejuvenate what makes America exceptional, we must unapologetically get back into Roosevelt's arena--as engaged 'good citizens' at home and powerful 'good patriots' in the world. Bolstered by gripping personal experience, Hegseth channels Teddy Roosevelt's words to make a case for turning America's highest ideals into action through the gritty virtues of citizenship, the dogged pursuit of equal opportunity, and aggressive commitment to winning the wars we fight--including the Iraq War. An exceptional American experiment was entrusted to 'average citizens' in 1776 and has been perpetuated by every generation since"--Provided by publisher.

Description : With new content by Ryk E. Spoor! It was supposed to be a simple test flight, one that pilot Ariane Austin was on only as a last-ditch backup; intelligent, superhumanly fast automation would handle the test activation and flight of humanity's first faster-than-light vessel. But when the Sandrisson Drive activated, every automated system crashed, the nuclear reactor itself shut down, and only the reflexes and training of a racing pilot saved the test vessel Holy Grail from crashing into the impossible wall that had appeared before them, a wall which is just part of a monstrous enclosure surrounding a space twenty thousand kilometers across. With all artificial intelligences inert and their reactor dead, they had to find some other source of power to reactivate the Sandrisson Drive and—hopefully—take them home. And that was only the beginning. As Ariane, Dr. Simon Sandrisson, darkly enigmatic power engineer Marc C. DuQuesne, and the rest of the Holy Grail's crew explore the immense artifact, they discover that they are not alone; they have entered a place the alien inhabitants call "The Arena," and there is no way out without joining one of the alien factions…or winning recognition as a faction in their own right, playing by the Arena's rules—and by the Arena's rules, one failed challenge could mean death or worse—perhaps for the entire human race. Surrounded by alien factions, each with its own secret plans and motivations, some wielding powers so strange as to be magical, Ariane sets out to beat the Arena at its own game. With DuQuesne's strategies, Sandrisson's genius, and her own unyielding determination, she's going to bring the Holy Grail home—even if she has to beat every faction in the Arena to do it!

Description : We pick up exactly where we left off in the first book, Arena's Forum. Only this time, in the form of a "tell-all" autobiography, as told and penned by Arena herself. You won't be able to put it down! Last we left her, Arena was failing miserably at life, but her failures don't end there because, spoiler alert: she botched her suicide attempt. Revived, renewed and released from a mental ward, Arena goes on a quest to reinvent herself as a successful business mogul in the world of organized crime; forming new alliances and partnerships that prove to be lucrative, and deadly. Suddenly finding herself in the cross-hairs of Merchant, a YouTube rapper-slash-dope-dealer-turned-infamous, Arena uproots her premium life of luxury to go into hiding in order to avoid him--and a possible prison sentence. Meanwhile, Arena's pro-basketball Hall of Fame parents adjust to living "out and proud" and away from the rest of the James Family clan that has sadly drifted apart in her absence. Familiar with heartache, and no stranger to heartbreak, she is forced to revisit the pain of lost love but will she ignite an old flame, or start love anew? More importantly, will Arena's business dealings lead her down a path of death, destruction, incarceration, or all of the above? Arena's Sanctuary is the sequel any fan of the Arena series would wish for. The book as a whole represents growth; in the author, the storytelling, and the leading character. It has highs and lows, ups and downs, good and evil, love and hate, along with the unexpected, signature twists we are blind to, but have come to expect from budding author Tia M. Myricks.

Description : "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Description : Sport is often at the centre of battles for rights to inclusion linked to class, race and gender, and this book explores struggles centred on disability in different cultural settings in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. It challenges oversights and assumptions about the ‘normal’ body, and describes how individual and organizational transformations can occur through sport. The abilities of a person are recognised and placed centre stage - instead of the individual being forgotten, excluded, or placed at the margins simply because they have a disability. National, regional and global change is part of the shift to the rights based approach reflected in the 2006 UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Making sport inclusive affects the accessibility of facilities, funding, the media, policies, programs, organisations, sponsors and spectators, and at the same time changes the cultural values of the wider society. It also raises issues about competition access and eligibility for ‘different’ and technologically enhanced ‘cyborg’ bodies, and for those most socially disadvantaged. Addressing these questions which ultimately touch on the real meaning of sport can lead to profound changes in people’s attitudes, and how sport is organized locally and globally. Growth in the influential global organisations of the Paralympic Games, Special Olympics and Deaflympics is examined, as is the approach to disability in sport in both advantaged and resource poor countries. The embodied lives of persons with disabilities are explored utilizing new theoretical models, perspectives and approaches. This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society.
