It is 1980, and the security of the American Embassy in Bangkok is under threat - from one of its own... Diplomat Axel Trink's career is tainted with wrongdoings and an obsession with gaining revenge on his boss, Josephine Bateman, who years earlier took advantage of him to jump-start her own Foreign Service career. This obsession takes a deadly turn when Trink gets involved with local terrorists and gangsters. His life and career are already at risk when he falls for a beautiful Thai terrorist and absconds with C-4 explosive and a cache of drugs intended to finance a coup d' tat; all in the name of revenge. Will Axel succeed with his revenge plot and flee to paradise or will his misdeeds come back to haunt him? Bangkok provides the ideal backdrop for the unraveling of a man who has sworn to protect the American flag -- but who instead takes the deadly paths of deceit and wrongdoing.

This novel, set in 1963, recounts the story of Blair Fusco, an aspiring eighteen-year-old who wishes to become a successful hairstylist, and prove wrong those who regard him as queer, particularly his father. Perceived to be homosexual, and ridiculed for his effeminate characteristics, Blair struggles to find his personal and professional identity. A first foiled romance with a lesbian and several equivocal relationships with mature women, together with his initiation into a group of local mobsters, transform Fusco into a shrewd operator. After many adventures and vicissitudes, he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his client/partner Robin Maxwell and her maid, Anne. Since Blair is the only suspect, and the police are unable to find the culprit, he is compelled to fight for his innocence. The young hairdresser pins his hopes on a few strands of hair found in one of the corpse's hands, which he believes came from a wig, and should hold a clue as to who murdered Robin. If Blair Fusco wants to exonerate himself and resolve the murders, he must find the culprit himself, unless he's willing to spend the rest of his days cutting hair in a penitentiary.

Leaving the Mohawk Valley of New York colony young Logan McGill, the superb frontiersman Davey Duncan and the irascible Turley travel to the wilds of the Ohio country wishing only to hunt and trap. But they soon learn that their peaceful intentions are not enough as they are harassed by blood thirsty savages, a vengeful antagonist, and ultimately become swept up in a brutal frontier war. After rescuing the beautiful Elizabeth Hay from her savage kidnappers the four seek refuge with a small, destitute army of Virginia militia. Led by the young and brave but inexperienced Colonel George Washington the Virginians must wrest possession of the forks of the Ohio from the French. Marching through a damp night they surprise a camp of French soldiers and fire the first shots that reignite the decades long conflict between England and France over control of North America. And once again numerous Indian nations are forced to choose which side to fight for. Though the Indians themselves realize that whoever wins, it is the Redman who will be the ultimate loser. From the Iroquois villages of the Mohawk Valley to the skirmish at Jumonvilles Glen and the Battle of Fort Necessity, through General Edward Braddocks fateful expedition to Duquesne, The Forks of the Ohio brings to life the opening events of The French and Indian War as related by Logan McGill. The saga of Logan and his companions continues in the sequel, Holy Sacrament, where the bloody struggle shifts to the New York frontier and the Battle of Lake George.

In the wake of Guantanamo Bay, extraordinary renditions, and secret torture centres in Eastern Europe and elsewhere, Revenge versus Legality addresses the relationship between law and wild or vigilante justice; between the power to enforce retribution and the desire to seek revenge. Taking up a variety of narratives from the eras of Romanticism, Realism, Modernism and the Contemporary period, and including new theories to explain the interactions that occur between legalistic courtroom justice and the vigilante variety, Revenge versus Legality analyzes some of the main obstacles to justice, ranging from judicial corruption, to racism and imperialism. The book culminates in a consideration of that form of crime or lawlessness that poses the most serious threat to the rule of law: vigilante justice masquerading as legality. With its mixture of politics, literature, law, and film, this lively and accessible book offers a timely reflection on the enduring phenomenon of revenge.

The creation of celebrity and fame is a topic easily understandable in today's world of pop idol competitions and reality TV shows. This exhibition and catalogue will focus on a similar phenomenon of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when urban Osaka and Tokyo created superstar actors, and will show how this was a stimulus for the creation of theatre, visual arts and poetry. Visitors to the exhibition will be struck by a colourful and varied visual display through which actors were portrayed as legendary urban heroes. The dates of items included will range from about 1780 until the 1830s; but the core of the exhibition will cover the period 1800-1821, and focus on the fierce rivalry between the two Osaka Kabuki superstars, Arashi Kichisaburo II (Rikan I, 1769-1821) and Nakamura Utaemon III (Shikan I, 1778-1838). Books, surimono, single sheet actor prints and albums will highlight the different ways in which actors and performances were represented, and show how this was part of a complex strategy to create celebrity for the actors, poets and artists involved.
