Buy this book! What, you expected sterling praise from famous writers? Sorry, I can't provide that because I am forced to publish Confederate Nation myself. Besides, I suspect that many of those testimonials are just favors from friends who may not have even read the book. And you never see a bad one, right? Let's face it, the so-called mainstream publishing industry has become constipated and reluctant to do much more than recycle the gorp of mediocre but established writers. It is mostly unwilling to take a chance and discover new and exciting writers. So, I am taking matters in my own hands and getting Confederate Nation in front of readers. Life is too short to wait for a break. I'm going to try and make it happen now. Is this a great book? Probably not. There are very few great books published any more. But is it entertaining? Yes. Does it tell an odd story? Certainly. And I have always thought it should be a movie, too. With proper padding and makeup, Kurt Russell could again be Elvis. A man is ultimately his own father because he keeps growing, if he's lucky, and as he grows he's the only person there every damn day to help get past the rough spots. We become our own fathers, and we should, and we must raise ourselves, even when a biological father has been there, but even more so when one has not. In the end we are solitary creatures. We're alone. The smart ones will make alliances and coalitions with others to make the trip sweeter and kinder, but it's a long and solitary trip and in the end the partners we make can't get us across the last barrier. That we have to do for ourselves. -Michael Loyd Gray

My ultimate goal when creating “Intricacies of Manhood”, was to try and help preserve the family structure, by offering some insight on some of the most important variables necessary to maintain relationships. There are so many single parent families nowadays that it is almost frightening. The family structure has diminished to a dream, in comparison to what was once an entity. Many single mothers are doing a good job raising children, but they can only offer certain elements of the family structure. It is priceless for a child to be able to witness the interaction between his mother and father around the house daily, the way a man respects his woman, and vise versa. Additionally, even when respect isn't present in the household, it can be used as a guide to what is necessary to show respect. Many single mothers today are raising their young boys graciously and sternly, showing all that is needed to make it in society, but they're forced to learn about being a man using bits and pieces of the men that come in and out of their lives, from experiences in their lives, or from mentors whom they see on a regular basis. The trouble with that is young boys spend most of their time at home with their mom. Now, it's great to want to be like your mom, because she is hard-working, respectable, and strong, but it's a whole other thing to want to be your mom! I wanted to ponder with the idea that some of these elements could be the cause of our huge percentage of divorce in our society today, and I wanted to point out some of these variables so that my readers can grasp a better understanding of some of the points made in “Intricacies of Manhood”.

These plays portray a society at the cusp of reform. The writing reflects a deep sense of the need for change, and awareness of the ground beginning to give way beneath the feet. The plays are: Alan Hopgood's Private Yuk Objects, a rich portrait of Australia in the mid-60s centred around Australia's participation in the Vietnam war; and This Old Man Comes Rolling Home, Dorothy Hewett's celebration of working-class life and politics in an inner-suburban Sydney during the cold war. The Lucky Streak by James Searle, a comedy about two young men who share a room in a boarding house, the play is an exploration of the rhythms of the inarticulate and the aggression, rooted in frustration, present in the simplest of domestic conversations; and Norm and Ahmed, Alex Buzo's classic examination of racism and alienation, and the subject of a controversial censorship debate.

The past decade has seen the medium of comics reach unprecedented heights of critical acclaim and commercial success. Comics & Media reflects that, bringing together an amazing array of contributors--creators and critics alike--to discuss the state, future, and potential of the medium. Loaded with full-color reproductions of work by such legends as R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, and Lynda Barry, the book addresses the place of comics in both a contemporary and historical context. Essays by such high-profile figures as Tom Gunning, N. Katherine Hayles, Patrick Jagoda, and W. J. T. Mitchell address a stunning range of topics, including the place of comics in the history of aesthetics, changes to popular art forms, digital humanities, and ongoing tensions between new and old media. The result is a substantial step forward for our understanding of what comics are and can be, and the growing place they hold in our culture.
