♥ Book Title : An Education in Rebellion: The Biography of Nikki Sixx
☯ Full Synopsis : "Time Magazine quipped at the start of the Millennium in their gossip section that the Backstreet Boys might be transforming into the Millennium's new Motley Crue now that 'Nikki Sixx has mellowed up...' Following an almost 3-decade education in rebellion as Hard Rock's mad musical scientist- highlighted by a now-infamous (and temporarily lethal) heroin overdose; relationships with some of Hollywood's most lucious leading ladies, including Vanity, Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt, Baywatch Star Donna D'Errico, and L.A. Ink star Kat Von D; and an almost 30-year, multi-platinum run (selling over 80 million albums worldwide) as the creative center of hard rock's most decadent and notorious rock band, Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx legacy among rock and metal fans worldwide is secure. Chronicled via Sixx's own diary entries, as well as through exclusive interviews with many of those closest to Sixx, including Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former live-in girlfriend (and multi-platinum rock artist) Lita Ford, legendary hard rock producers Bob Rock, Tom Werman, and Scott Humphrey, co-founding member of London Lizzie Grey, legendary rock photographer Neil Zlozower, Sixx A.M. band member and Sixx songwriting/producing partner James Michael, late recovery specialist to the stars Bob Timmons (who aided Sixx through his substance abuse recovery), 58 collaborator Dave Darling, former Motley Crue/Brides of Destruction bandmate John Corabi, and late Quiet Riot frontman Kevin Dubrow (recounting Sixx's pre-Crue audition for Randy Rhodes-era Quiet Riot), among many others. Updated from its original 2003 publication through the summer of 2009, and including a free bonus sampler featuring unsigned/up and coming Millennium rock/metal bands influenced by Sixx's songwriting, 'An Education in Rebellion: The Biography of Nikki Sixx' promises to paint for its readers both a vividly intimate and wildly colorful portrait of the life and times of one of Hard Rock's most important and influential icons!"Article| Jake Brown| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Globalizing the student rebellion in the long ’68
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume brings us closer to the dynamics of the educational world, especially students, from a wide range of national and regional scenarios, with a special focus on Europe and Latin America. In this way, a plural panorama is shown, in which the stories centered on the usual protagonists of the 1968 processes are accompanied by other scenarios, often considered secondary, but which this volume inserts in a more general story that helps us understand how the processes of the 60s were not concrete or national, but got an absolute regional and global significance. We see a complex process of transnational demand that ranged from Eastern Europe, included in the Soviet bloc, to the very heart of the Western Hemisphere, with the United States as the main axis, passing through the politically varied Western Europe, submitted to the same processes and cultural influences. In this sense, to the works that deal with the United States and France, are added others focused on Italy, Spain and Brazil, as priority focus areas, together with other European and Latin American landscapes: Great Britain, Portugal, Greece, Slovakia, Hungary, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico, without missing, in addition, the case of one of the most unique actors on the international scene: the State of Israel. With this volume, we want to continue advancing in the knowledge of the educational world of the second half of the 20th century. Great are the challenges of this world at the beginning of the 21st century and many of them were already evident in 1968. Others have materialized as a result of those events. To confront both of them, we must first identify and analyze them, as well as being aware of their magnitude. We hope that all this work can contribute to this aim."Article| Andrés Payà Rico,| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Missionaries, Rebellion and Proto-Nationalism
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Rev. James Long was one of the most remarkable Protestant missionaries working in India in the nineteenth century. Sent to Calcutta at the age of 22 in 1840, he devoted his life to representing what he passionately believed were the best interests of the forgotten poor and oppressed among the Bengali population. Long was a central figure in the indigo planting controversy of 1861 and suffered imprisonment as a result. His memory is revered even today in modern India, where his contribution to the development of Bengali vernacular education, literature, history, and sociology is highly regarded. Dr Oddie has produced the first full-length biography of Rev Long, examining his work and activities in the context of his own background, philosophy and motivation as well as the political and cultural climate of the day. This book will add significantly to our knowledge of social movements in nineteenth century India and the colonial responses to them."Article| Geoffrey A. Oddie| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Beyond Conformity Or Rebellion
☯ Full Synopsis : "By the late 1970s, drugs, blue jeans, rock and roll, and sexual precocity appeared to be all that remained of the cultural ferment of the 1960s. In this classic new study of high school-aged youth in the eartly 70s, Gary Schwartz reveals subtle yet significant changes in the style of deviance in adolescent culture. He argues that a new sort of peer-group pluralism emerged from the counter-culture movement of the 60s, a deviance defined less by persistent violations of the law than by disengagement from traditional images of success and civic responsibility."Article| Gary Schwartz| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Popular Piety and Political Identity in Mexico's Cristero Rebellion
☯ Full Synopsis : "Dr Butler provides a new interpretation of the cristero war (1926-29) which divided Mexico's peasantry into rival camps loyal to the Catholic Church (cristero) or the Revolution (agrarista). This book puts religion at the heart of our understanding of the revolt by showing how peasant allegiances often resulted from genuinely popular cultural and religious antagonisms. It challenges the assumption that Mexican peasants in the 1920s shared religious outlooks and that their behaviour was mainly driven by political and material factors. Focusing on the state of Michoacán in western-central Mexico, the volume seeks to integrate both cultural and structural lines of inquiry. First charting the uneven character of Michoacán's historical formation in the late colonial period and the nineteenth century, Dr Butler shows how the emergence of distinct agrarian regimes and political cultures was later associated with varying popular responses to post-revolutionary state formation in the areas of educational and agrarian reform. At the same time, it is argued that these structural trends were accompanied by increasingly clear divergences in popular religious cultures, including lay attitudes to the clergy, patterns of religious devotion and deviancy, levels of sacramental participation, and commitment to militant 'social' Catholicism. As peasants in different communities developed distinct parish identities, so the institutional conflict between Church and state acquired diverse meanings and provoked violently contradictory popular responses. Thus the fires of revolt burned all the more fiercely because they inflamed a countryside which - then as now - was deeply divided in matters of faith as well as politics. Based on oral testimonies and careful searches of dozens of ecclesiastical and state archives, this study makes an important contribution to the religious history of the Mexican Revolution."Article| Matthew Butler| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Rebellion in the Temple of Justice
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ghost Courts of the War Between the States In 1860, news of Abraham Lincoln's election arrived in Charleston like a fire alarm. In the United States courtroom on Chalmers Street, the grand jury simply refused to go on. All eyes are on the judge. In a dramatic moment, Judge A.G. Magrath, tears off his robes and tells jurors and spectators that, rather than continuing under tyranny, his Temple of Justice is forever closed. Thus in this long-since forgotten room took place the first official act of disunion, predating the Ordinance of Secession by over a month and lighting the fuse that lead to war. Preserving a piece of history few knew existed, trial attorney Warren Moise takes the reader back in time to the courts and law practice of a different era. Ride into the frontier town of Spartanburg by night with two tired lawyers where to their surprise they see hundreds of sweating men fighting bare-fisted in the flickering torch light. Just as important, learn the never-before documented role of the bench and bar in the battle for secession and of the Confederate States court, where the CS Attorney prosecuted former US Attorneys James L. Petigru and Edward McCrady for contempt because they defied Confederate law."Article| Warren Moise| Statement ..."
