• A frank, fierce and insightful memoir of a young girl’s path to womanhood, via many homes • From her stateless childhood in Zambia and Kenya and her college years in North America, to her return to South Africa in the euphoric 1990s and her adult life in Australia, Sisonke Msimang’s memoir is a candid and moving story of survival told through a global lens • With razor-sharp insight, Sisonke untangles the threads of race, class and gender so prominent in the fabric of her own life, all the way from the ugly face of racism in apartheid South Africa to the xenophobia of her newfound home in Perth • Deeply personal, Always Another Country is a moving portrait of Sisonke’s own life journey and all the romance, heartache and grief that has helped to make her the writer, activist, mother and woman she is today • Uncompromising, angry and hopeful, Sisonke represents a bold new voice on feminism, race and politics, in the tradition of Arundhati Roy, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Maxine Beneba Clarke • Sisonke is well known in the Australian writing community, having previously appeared at various literary festivals and events. Her TED Talk on storytelling has been viewed over 1 million times • Always Another Country will be the subject of a major publicity and marketing campaign in ANZ and will be published simultaneously with the US and UK editions. Bound proofs are available and Sisonke will be appearing at the Leading Edge Booksellers Conference in March 2018

"Always Another Horizon is well written and a delightful way to spend a winter's evening or a rainy day." -Santana Magazine Full of rich detail and intriguing insight, Always Another Horizon: A Journey Around the World tells the story of one couple's voyage around the globe. For nearly eight years, author Tina Olton and her husband, Steve Salmon, sailed around the world on their forty-foot, ocean-going sailboat, Another Horizon. In that time, they traveled 45,000 miles, visited sixty-one countries, and crossed three oceans as well as countless seas, canals, lakes, and rivers. From Berkeley, California, the couple cast off their dock lines to head west through the Golden Gate. The whole world was before them-the ultimate traveler's dream. From the rich beauty of French Polynesia on Easter Sunday to the whitewashed beaches of Greece, Olton and Salmon embraced the world and its diversity. But the voyage also forced the couple to examine the limits of their determination, their ability to endure hardship, their tolerance for other people-regardless of behavior or beliefs-and their good will toward each other. Olton and Salmon soon realized that the journey would have a profound impact on their lives-or bring them to their knees. For maps and photos, see www.AlwaysAnotherHorizon.com.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions--sexual, racial, political, artistic--that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime.

This book aims to reinvigorate the Marxist project and the role it might play in illuminating the way beyond capitalism. Though political economy and scientific investigation are needed for pure Marxism, Martin’s argument is that the extent to which these elements are needed cannot be determined within the conversations of political economy and other investigations into causal mechanisms. What has not been done, and what this book does, is to argue for the possibility of a rethought Marxism that takes ethics as its core, displacing political economy and "scientific" investigation.

The fear and violence that followed the events of September 11, 2001 touched lives all around the world, even in places that few would immediately associate with the global war on terror. In At the Limits of Justice, twenty-nine contributors from six countries explore the proximity of terror in their own lives and in places ranging from Canada and the United States to Jamaica, Palestine/Israel, Australia, Guyana, Chile, Pakistan, and across the African continent. In this collection, female scholars of colour – including leading theorists on issues of indigeneity, race, and feminism – examine the political, social, and personal repercussions of the war on terror through contributions that range from testimony and poetry to scholarly analysis. Inspired by both the personal and the global impact of this violence within the war on terror, they expose the way in which the war on terror is presented as a distant and foreign issue at the same time that it is deeply present in the lives of women and others all around the world. An impassioned but rigorous examination of issues of race and gender in contemporary politics, At the Limits of Justice is also a call to create moral communities which will find terror and violence unacceptable.

Intelligence networks will forever be with us, and surely there will always be an appropriate role for the intelligence community. There are still important but hard to learn facts about targets including the intentions and capabilities of rogue states and terrorists, the proliferation of unconventional weapons, and the disposition of potentially hostile military forces that can only be identified, monitored, and measured through dedicated intelligence assets. In Residual Uncertainty, Roy Pateman gives numerous examples of where security has been breached, and networks, severely, even irreparably compromised and explains how the consequences of intelligence failure will surely be graver in the future. Pateman pinpoints the causes of failures in intelligence and policy in today's world and offers solutions that will drastically overhaul and improve our intelligence networks."

“For there is indeed something we can call the spirit of ancient Greece–a carefully tuned voice that speaks out of the grave with astonishing clarity and grace , a distinctive voice that, taken as a whole, is like no other voice that has ever sung on this earth.” –BURTON RAFFEL, from his Preface For centuries, the poetry of Homer, Aristophanes, Sophocles, Sappho, and Archilochus has served as one of our primary means of connecting with the wholly vanished world of ancient Greece. But the works of numerous other great and prolific poets–Alkaios, Meleager, and Simonides, to name a few–are rarely translated into English , and are largely unknown to modern readers. In Pure Pagan, award-winning translator Burton Raffel brings these and many other wise and witty ancient Greek writers to an English-speaking audience for the first time, in full poetic flower. Their humorous and philosophical ruminations create a vivid portrait of everyday life in ancient Greece –and they are phenomenally lovely as well. In short, sharp bursts of song, these two-thousand-year-old poems speak about the timeless matters of everyday life: Wine (Wine is the medicine / To call for, the best medicine / To drink deep, deep) History (Not us: no. / It began with our fathers, / I’ve heard). Movers and shakers (If a man shakes loose stones / To make a wall with / Stones may fall on his head / Instead) Old age (Old age is a debt we like to be owed / Not one we like to collect) Frankness (Speak / As you please / And hear what can never / Please). There are also wonderful epigrams (Take what you have while you have it: you’ll lose it soon enough. / A single summer turns a kid into a shaggy goat) and epitaphs (Here I lie, beneath this stone, the famous woman who untied her belt for only one man). The entrancing beauty, humor, and piercing clarity of these poems will draw readers into the Greeks’ journeys to foreign lands, their bacchanalian parties and ferocious battles, as well as into the more intimate settings of their kitchens and bedrooms. The poetry of Pure Pagan reveals the ancient Greeks’ dreams, their sense of humor, sorrows, triumphs, and their most deeply held values, fleshing out our understanding of and appreciation for this fascinating civilization and its artistic legacy.
