The Brexshit Book: A Remainer's Self-Help Guide to Leaving the EU

Steven S. Stevens

The Brexshit Book: A Remainer's Self-Help Guide to Leaving the EU by Steven S. StevensThis is the book for the 16 Million of us that woke up the day after the night before the EU referendum to find our Euro dreams in tatters. This is a book about leaving when you really wanted to stay. This is a book about having to deal with the consequences of someone else's decision. This is a book that will lead you mindfully (and not without some good hearted political mockery) down the path of acceptance into the cold hard Brexit dawn.

The Ghosts of Guerrilla Memory: How Civil War Bushwhackers Became Gunslingers in the American West

Matthew Hulbert

The Ghosts of Guerrilla Memory: How Civil War Bushwhackers Became Gunslingers in the American West by Matthew Hulbert

The Civil War tends to be remembered as a vast sequence of battles, with a turning point at Gettysburg and a culmination at Appomattox. But in the guerrilla theater, the conflict was a vast sequence of home invasions, local traumas, and social degeneration that did not necessarily end in 1865. This book chronicles the history of "guerrilla memory," the collision of the Civil War memory "industry" with the somber realities of irregular warfare in the borderlands of Missouri and Kansas.

In the first accounting of its kind, Matthew Christopher Hulbert

Why I Am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto

Jessa Crispin

Why I Am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto by Jessa CrispinOutspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism . . . and a bracing manifesto for revolution.

Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist . . . or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent...

Sounding the Color Line: Music and Race in the Southern Imagination

Erich Nunn

Sounding the Color Line: Music and Race in the Southern Imagination by Erich Nunn

Sounding the Color Line explores how competing understandings of the U.S. South in the first decades of the twentieth century have led us to experience musical forms, sounds, and genres in racialized contexts. Yet, though we may speak of white or black music, rock or rap, sounds constantly leak through such barriers. A critical disjuncture exists, then, between actual interracial musical and cultural forms on the one hand and racialized structures of feeling on the other. This is nowhere more apparent than in the South.

Like Jim Crow segregation, the separation of musical forms along racial lines...

A Late Encounter with the Civil War
