This comprehensive reader brings a social science perspective to an area hitherto dominated by the humanities. Through it, students will be able to follow the story of how sociology has come to engage with gay and lesbian issues from the 1950s to the present, from the earliest research on the underground worlds of gay men to the emergence of queer theory in the 1990s. Bringing together classic readings and the best work of younger scholars from all parts of the English-speaking world, this reader will be an invaluable resource for courses at undergraduate and graduate level in all areas of the sociology of sexuality and gender. Separate sections cover: * theoretical foundations * identity and community making * institutions and social change * challenges for the future. Each section begins with an introduction giving readers a brief guide to the readings in that section, contextualises them and relates them to one another and the book ends with an afterword by Ken Plummer summing up the present state of play and looking forward to the future.

The first monograph on the iconic independent New York street fashion label Supreme. In April 1994, Supreme opened its doors on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan and became the home of New York City skate culture. Challenging the dominance of the established Wes Coast skater scene and the new conservatism of 1990s New York, Supreme defined the aesthetic of an era of rebellious cool that reached from skaters to fashionistas and hip hop heads. Over the last sixteen years, the brand has stayed true to its roots while collaborating with some of the most groundbreaking artists and designers of its generation, and with stores in Los Angeles and Japan has become an international icon of independent counter-cultural style. This definitive monograph - with written contributions from contrasting arbiters of style, Aaron Bondaroff and Glenn O'Brien, and including an interview between founder James Jebbia and the artist KAWS - brings together the disparate elements of the brand's output, from legendary advertising campaigns to especially commissioned skateboard designs, photographs, and artworks, and a comprehensive index of their products to date. Including collaborations with Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Damien Hirst, Public Enemy, Lou Reed, and Futura 2000 among many others, this richly illustrated book is a survey of sixteen years of contemporary street fashion and culture reflected in the pioneering work of one of New York's most influential independent labels.

Imagine a futuristic world where great swathes of land are already uninhabitable as a result of heavily increased global temperatures and annually elevating scorching conditions. Humans live in hydro zones which are the only places that can sustain life and hydro reserves are limited and jealously guarded by political powers and global alliances. Laws, punishable by death, exist to recycle and preserve all moisture, including that which is excreted from one's body. In this devastated civilization, there is no economy, jobs are limited and primal human survival is the only priority. Humanity has come to terms with the fact that their world is dying and their very existence is in the balance. Human innovations throughout history now count for nothing. Civilisation has been knocked back several hundred years and now the instinct for human survival is paramount In the middle of all this stand two brothers, diverse in character, to whom fate has handed the keys to the future of the human race. Against all odds they must fight for survival against an unknown and immeasurably superior race; a battle that will define the ultimate existence of mankind! This is the world illustrated by this exhilarating and action-packed science fiction novel. Sentient simians, genetically modified and cloned alien warriors, alternative realities and cross temporal battles these are just a few of the elements that will confront readers as they turn the action-packed pages of this electric book. Glazed with an eccentric mixture of interestingly grotesque elements, a descriptive literary style, sophisticated technologies and raw imaginative creativity, this read is a sure-fire hit, especially for avid science fiction fanatics.

There is no genuine affiliation between Joyce's book "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" and this book with the exception of the mock title that in the current usage plays the role of a gigantesque pastiche. Joyce's portraiture genre, superimposed over a restless American landscape, becomes blurred. In reality "A Portrait of the Artist as an Anthropomorphic Genius-Machine" is an antidote to Joyce's story. In Joyce's story the characters fold inside the chronicle and become "elements of style". In "A Portrait of the Artist as an Anthropomorphic Genius-Machine" the characters appear, swell and decay as real living experiences, though mundane. As opposed to Joyce's super-esthetic and pedantic tale where even the pain is suffered as part of some metaphor, this story tends to show that an American version of it is nothing but a byproduct of a society that is wide enough to gulp down success, happiness, failures, anxiety, malaise and death without affectation. The portrait-story is set in a small town called New Braintree and moves around three school pals – Joe, Walter and Peter - whose lives intersect for the length of the story: Joe, the main character, stands out as a nonconformist genius and a trouble-packed kid. He is living his anger filled childhood as if he was hurled into his own life by forces outside his control. Walter is a "prince" boy, and functions as a counterpoint to Joe. It is as if Walter could act only as long as he is part of this double-portrait, though in essence he'd like to be Joe. Peter is the witnessing chronicler. As opposed to Joe and Walter, he acts always like a thin and unnoticeable shadow. In this trio, Joe is the one who puts a fresh and original spin on teenage happenings and its growing pains. Thus, the story evolves most of the time around Joe's rebellious personality and his spoiled life, seen him either as a problems ridden child - unable to put his life back in order after his mom dies - or as a teenager that falls prey to drugs and gambling, or, at the end, as a young-man-crusader for lost causes for which he dies. Joe's case would prove not only that brightness and geniality could be weakened and eventually shattered by recklessness and excessive misbehavior, but also that fate and circumstance are playing sometimes an even more fatal role. Though, after all, there is something very wrong and frightening about a genius, who is nothing but an accident of nature, capable to create chaos and mayhem in his life and the life of the others due to a huge imbalance between a swamped brain and the limited degree of freedom he can use on a daily bases to participate in a life experience. Always struggling, either battling lonely the faceless enemy surfacing on his brain or real characters that mess up his youth years, Joe projects the strange feeling that he is living all his life inside an unresolved teenage crisis. His portrait is a suite of rebellious acts leading up to inhospitable consequences and death.
