The Magic Lantern is one of those rare books that capture history in the making, written by an author who was witness to some of the most remarkable moments that marked the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. Timothy Garton Ash was there in Warsaw, on 4 June, when the communist government was humiliated by Solidarity in the first semi-free elections since the Second World War. He was there in Budapest, twelve days later, when Imre Nagy - thirty-one years after his execution - was finally given his proper funeral. He was there in Berlin, as the Wall opened. And most remarkable of all, he was there in Prague, in the back rooms of the Magic Lantern theatre, with Václav Havel and the members of Civic Forum, as they made their 'Velvet Revolution'.

"[The Magic Lantern of Marcel Proust] reduces the ungainly and intricately designed masterpiece to its shape, and with hardly a wasted word...The paragraphs on habit and memory are truly wonderful—wonderful as explication, as psychology, and as philosophy."—John Updike "Almost everything Moss says seems to me right, illuminating, and new. This is the book of a mature and individual mind and sensibility, with a deep experience of moral, social, psychological, and aesthetic values which is rare among critics." —George D. Painter "A moving and inspiring book. Moss clears away dark corners, clarifies motivations, and places the huge work within the reader's perspective. A book of great value to the scholar and the general reader." —Publishers Weekly "Remembrance of Things Past is more than a novel; it is a work in which a single person's life is transformed into a mythology, with its own pantheon of gods, its own religious rituals, and its own moral laws. A total vision, it does not rely on any system outside itself for support. It is as if Dante had set out to write the Paradiso and the Inferno utilizing only the facts of his own existence without any reference to Christianity...Other novelists describe or invent worlds. Remembrance of Things Past is an entire universe created and interpreted by Marcel Proust." — from Chapter 1 "Moss lays out the sweeping claims and overarching structure of Remembrance of Things Past—the significance of Swann's Way and the Guermantes Way, or why there are such long party scenes—and is equally good at bringing to light all sorts of tiny, revealing details." — from the new Foreword by Damion Searls

Created by the famous Italian graphic artist Guido Crepax, Valentina is one of the most iconic, sexy graphic novel heroines of all time. With her distinctive black bob and demure, reserved exterior, Valentina is the very essence of European sophistication. However, below the surface burns a passionate young woman eager to inhabit another world; a world where she can explore her dark attraction to that which most frightens her. In VALENTINA AND THE MAGIC LANTERN, Crepax takes us deep into the heart of her most intensely erotic, fetishistic fantasies - a journey which will heat the blood and set the pulse racing as Valentina is drawn into a labyrinth of elaborate costumes and thrilling liaisons; where physical gratification comes in every shape and size, and absolutely anything goes.

The visual has become a central theme in the study of childhood both as a research subject and a research method. The last two decades have seen huge interest in how children are represented in visual culture and how they in turn engage with visual cultures - as producers, audiences, and sometimes both. This innovative book gives a historical and geographic perspective on visual cultures of childhood, looking at representation as well as media effects. The main themes of the book are the strong presence of children in visual cultures in the modern period and the uses of this visual record for understanding how childhood is represented and constructed - as gendered, racialised and class-based. It covers social realism, melodrama and activism. Visual cultures of childhood are significant cultural resources that children draw on to understand and learn how to perform social identities. The access that teens now have to making their own visual productions and how the representation of gender, race and class than they produce compare to those produced by adults for children is interesting and very rich ground to conduct research on. It also speaks to current political concerns about, for example, how youth understand citizenship.
