8. Civilization Is Possible (Large Print 16pt) - Blase Bonpane

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 28.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Fifty years from now, historians will be identifying the criminality of the George W. Bush Administration. As these academics document their task they will be dependent on authors who were ''in his face'' at the time of these international crimes. Blase Bonpane believes that silence is complicity. Civilization is Possible identifies the crimes at the very time they were being committed. Aside from the weekly commentaries of Blase Bonpane, this volume also includes his personal interviews with like minded observers of the disastrous Bush years: Noam Chomsky, Chalmers Johnson, Robert Fisk, Greg Palast and Peter Laufer. These are voices crying in the wilderness of rampant militarism, torture and collateral damage (murder). This toxic mix was nurtured by literally hundreds of lies coming from a failed administration that blatantly abused the sacred trust of our citizens.
These commentaries would have never been permitted by the rigid corporate media censorship which marks the Iraq War years. This exercise of free speech in Civilization is Possible was only made possible by ''fiercely independent'' KPFK radio Los Angeles (listener supported and ''powered by the people'') for the Pacifica Network.
Civilization is Possible completes a trilogy of Blase Bonpane's books published by Red Hen Press. His previous books were: Guerrillas of Peace; Pacifica Radio Commentaries and Peace Reports from the Office of the Americas, second printing, 2002, and Common Sense for the Twenty - First Century, 2004, which in addition to his radio commentaries includes interviews with the Reverend James Lawson, Jonathan Schell and Chalmers Johnson.
By selecting The Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the preface to Civilization is Possible, Blase Bonpane gives a hint about how his title might become a reality.

11. Sex Carnival (Large Print 16pt) - Bill Brownstein

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A tongue - in - cheek odyssey through the sex capitals of the world. The applause is near - deafening as crowd favourite Tristan Taormino makes her way to the podium to pick up her award. ''Oh my God! This is so wonderful,'' she gushes, all the while trying to hold back tears. ''Buttman, you gave me a chance when no one else would, and the next thing I knew I was the subject of a gang - bang, and now this... I just want to thank Mom and Dad.''
Welcome to the world of Sex Carnival - a whimsical, eye - opening record of one man's travels into the bold new world of porn. Bill Brownstein provides a guide for the uninitiated and the bewildered, a hands - on intro for anyone who wonders why the porno biz has become so mainstream in just the last few years.
Brownstein's global travels take him from watching Tristan and other sex superstars accept their trophies at the annual porn awards ceremony in Las Vegas to witnessing the weekend shopping sprees of Dutch families as the kids push their grocery carts through the biggest sex supermarkets on earth. He takes us from dungeons and dragons pleasure chambers in New York to a different kind of pleasure - the rough trade in Hamburg. And along the way, he stops off to catch some lap - dancing in Montreal and all kinds of unexpected action at the sex bars of Paris.
Sex Carnival is no definitive history of porn. Instead, this book is fun. Brownstein gives us a lively account of our obsession with the business of sex, an odyssey of one man's encounters with a universe of titillation that is fresh, original, naughty, and very bizarre.

13. Noam Chomsky A Life of Dissent (Large Print 16pt) - Robert F. Barsky

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This biography tells the story of how a great intellect, Noam Chomsky's, was shaped. It describes the political and intellectual contexts that helped form the unyielding principles by which Chomsky lives, and the arenas of scholarship, political action, and ideology to which he still contributes. Along the way, the book provides an engaging political history of the last several decades, and many insights into how history too often gets rewritten. Chomsky's views on the uses and misuses of the university are highlighted, as are his doubts about the legitimacy of post - modernist inquiry, and his overall assessment of useful political engagement. In a sense, this book strives to be the autobiography that Chomsky will probably never write by letting Chomsky speak for himself on the matters of greatest concern to him, through well - placed excerpts from his copious body of published writings and unpublished corespondence.

A collection of essays and occasional pieces on gambling, teaching, snakes, dogs, cars, hitchhiking, marriage and sophistication, memory and work, and a dozen other subjects.

19. My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus A Memoir (Large Print 16pt) - Kelly Barth

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The idea of Jesus as an imaginary friend tiny enough to live in her heart comforted Barth as a child and would continue to do so throughout her life. His unqualified acceptance of her emerging sexuality so clashed with the fundamentalist church's stand on homosexuality that she wondered if she could trust his friendship. Instead of embracing her friend's encouragement, Barth found herself venturing into the very heart of enemy territory and the church's false promises of altar calls and sexual cures. For years, she lingered there until all Imaginary Jesus had been trying to tell her about herself and about life becomes too compelling to ignore. My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus speaks to this disconnect between the radical and very human Jesus of history and the church's supernatural savior. At once heartbreaking and hilarious, this book gives voice to the many LGBT people who have searched for sanctuary in a church that has largely rejected them and, in so doing, departed from the teachings of the Jesus it claims to follow.
