♥ Book Title : Fields Of Courage
☯ Full Synopsis : "The history of sport is littered with tales of exemplary courage: sportsmen and women pushing their bodies through the pain barrier, or defying career-threatening injuries, in quest of victory. From the goalkeeper who played in a FA Cup Final with a broken neck to the batsman who saved a Test match with his arm in plaster, their heroics have inspired generations of schoolchildren. But courage is as much a moral as a physical attribute. Some of the most inspiring chapters in sport feature men and women of principle who have challenged authority, fought prejudice or simply had the guts to confess to weaknesses that went against the grain of their profession. Ben Hogan, Jackie Robinson, Marcus Trescothick, Billie-Jean King, Eric Lidell . . . Max Davidson's cavalcade of sporting heroism celebrates virtues that transcend winning and losing -- and explains why sport at its best is so inspirational."Article| Max Davidson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Wanting
☯ Full Synopsis : "FROM THE WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014 Mathinna, an Aboriginal girl from Van Diemen’s Land, is adopted by nineteenth-century explorer, Sir John Franklin, and his wife, Lady Jane. Franklin is confident that shining the light of reason on Mathinna will lift her out of savagery and desire. But when Franklin dies on an Arctic expedition, Lady Jane writes to Charles Dickens, asking him to defend Franklin’s reputation amid rumours of his crew lapsing into cannibalism. Dickens responds by staging a play in which he takes the leading role as Franklin, his symbol of reason’s triumph, only to fall in love with an eighteen-year-old actress. As reason gives way to wanting, the frontier between civilisation and barbarity dissolves, and Mathinna, now a teenage prostitute, goes drinking on a fatal night."Article| Richard Flanagan| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Face of Britain
☯ Full Synopsis : "Simon Schama brings Britain to life through its portraits, as seen in the five-part BBC series The Face of Britain and the major National Portrait Gallery exhibition Churchill and his painter locked in a struggle of stares and glares; Gainsborough watching his daughters run after a butterfly; a black Othello in the nineteenth century, the poet-artist Rossetti trying to capture on canvas what he couldn't possess in life, a surgeon-artist making studies of wounded faces brought in from the Battle of the Somme; a naked John Lennon five hours before his death. In the age of the hasty glance and the selfie, Simon Schama has written a tour de force about the long exchange of looks from which British portraits have been made over the centuries: images of the modest and the mighty; of friends and lovers; heroes and working people. Each of them - the image-maker, the subject, and the rest of us who get to look at them - are brought unforgettably to life. Together they build into a collective picture of Britain, our past and our present, a look into the mirror of our identity at a moment when we are wondering just who we are. Combining his two great passions, British history and art history, for the first time, Schama's extraordinary storytelling reveals the truth behind the nation's most famous portrayals of power, love, fame, the self, and the people. Mesmerising in its breadth and its panache, and beautifully illustrated, with more than 150 images from the National Portrait Gallery, The Face of Britain will change the way we see our past - and ourselves."Article| Simon Schama| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Embodying Black Experience
☯ Full Synopsis : "Embodying Black Experience is an interdisciplinary work of cultural history and theory that looks at present-day effects of past experiences of the black body through the performances of various artists and athletes, including boxer Muhammad Ali, playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, and choreographer Bill T. Jones, as well as artists and photographers. Harvey Young does close readings of these performances and offers what he calls a "third space between racial essentialism and racial pluralism" by engaging with a number of critical and theoretical debates, expanding on the writings of Stuart Hall, Henry Louis Gates, and Homi Bhabha. In so doing, he also challenges the work of Paul Gilroy, while incorporating the theories of Fanon, Merleau-Ponty, Lacan, and Bourdieu. The people profiled stand up and stand tall as they employ performance (including the performance of stillness) to challenge racializing projections: Ali uses it to refuse induction into the U.S. Army. Robbie McCauley stages it with the aim of reactivating the memories of her great-great-grandparents. James Cameron uses the still photographs of previous lynching campaigns and a souvenir from his own near-lynching to establish an archive of the horrors of U.S. racial violence. Harvey Young is Assistant Professor of Theatre, Performance Studies, and Radio/Television/Film at Northwestern University."Article| Harvey Young| Statement ..."
