Death lies at the beginning of the Arab uprisings, and death continues to haunt them. Most narratives about the ‘Arab Spring’ begin with Mohammed Bouazizi, a Tunisian fruit vendor who set himself on fire. Egyptian protesters in turn referred to Khaled Said, a young man from Alexandria whom the police had beaten to death. This book places death at the centre of its engagement with the Arab uprisings, counterrevolutions, and their aftermaths. It examines martyrdom and commemoration as performative acts through which death and life are infused with meaning. Conversely, it shows how, in the making, remembering, and erasing of martyrs, hierarchies are (re)produced and possible futures are foreclosed. The contributors argue that critical anthropological engagement with death, martyrdom, and afterlife is indispensable if we want to understand the making of pasts and futures in a revolutionary present. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnos: Journal of Anthropology.

To the hero of the title story of this collection, all of England has the glow of an afterlife: “A miraculous lacquer lay upon everything, beading each roadside twig . . . each reed of thatch, each tiny daisy trembling in the grass.” All of these stories, each in its own way, partake of this glow, as life beyond middle age is explored and found to have its own exquisite dearness. As death approaches, existence takes on, for some of Updike’s aging characters, a translucence, a magical fragility; vivid memory and casual misperception lend the mundane an antic texture, and the backward view, lengthening, acquires a certain grandeur. Here is a world where wonder stubbornly persists, and fresh beginnings almost outnumber losses.

In RUGBY TALES, Lawrence Dallaglio recalls with affection and razor-sharp humour, the behind-the-scenes stories that have previously only been shared within the world of international rugby, together with some classics from his rugby-playing colleagues and mates. There's the one about the 2003 World Cup winner who curtseyed to the queen and another featuring the rugby legend who was affronted by the suggestion that he had been out on the town until 3 a.m. days before a crucial match. 'Don't you look at me,' he cried indignantly, 'I got in at six.' Featuring big games, bigger personalities, quick-fire banter and the odd pint or two, these are the best of the best from the legends of the dressing room, pitch and pub.

When the Archangel Gabriel recognises a problem in the Afterlife, he engages a management consultant. Geoffrey Kingston is amazed that his atheism and his adulteries matter less than his expertise in down-sizing. his commission will cap his meteoric rise from provincial Queensland to the corridors of power in Canberra if he can understand the structure, the personnel and the residents of the Afterlife, and the implications of disembodiment. Meanwhile Geoffrey's family and his mistress are consoled by a Visiting Medical Officer. As he comforts the bereaved, Dr Angel Milan discovers a great deal about Geoffrey's affairs and the consequences of embodiment. Gabriel is still puzzled by the apple incident in Eden. While the meaning of Life eludes him, he reveals the meaning of the Afterlife and explains to Geoffrey the paradox that he knows all about Life but simply cannot understand it. When Geoffrey submits his advice therefore, he is offered his ultimate commission. As he ponders Gabriel's agenda, however, he resolves to take the ultimate risk and double-cross the CEO of the Afterlife.
