By exploring the patterns, colours and crests of flags, we can learn all about the histories and aspirations of the countries they represent. Did you know that the flag of Nepal is the only one with more than four sides? Or that the flag of Mozambique features a book, a hoe and an AK47? Find out the difference between the flag of Chad and the flag of Romania (spoiler: there is none), and why the Union Jack is assymetrical. Robert G Fresson’s meticulous, vintage-inflected illustrations provide a refreshingly elegant insight into the fascinating world of vexillology.

After World War II, studies examining youth culture on the silver screen start with James Dean. But the angst that Dean symbolized—anxieties over parents, the “Establishment,” and the expectations of future citizen-soldiers—long predated Rebels without a Cause. Historians have largely overlooked how the Great Depression and World War II impacted and shaped the Cold War, and youth contributed to the national ideologies of family and freedom. From Dead Ends to Cold Warriors explores this gap by connecting facets of boyhood as represented in American film from the 1930s to the postwar years. From the Andy Hardy series to pictures such as The Search, Intruder in the Dust, and The Gunfighter, boy characters addressed larger concerns over the dysfunctional family unit, militarism, the “race question,” and the international scene as the Korean War began. Navigating the political, social, and economic milieus inside and outside of Hollywood, Peter W.Y. Lee demonstrates that continuities from the 1930s influenced the unique postwar moment, coalescing into anticommunism and the Cold War.

The year is 2014. America is no longer the industrial or the military dynamo that it had previously been. Inside its own borders, minor disputes over national issues are accelerating beyond the comprehension and management of both the American public and among its political leaders. In the fog of distance, a phantom cargo ship drifts hauntingly alone on the Pacific Ocean. Its crew mysteriously murdered by someone... or something... thats too horrible to explain...too eerie to reveal its forbidden truth. Some six thousand miles away, covert activities and treasonous acts against the United States now send rippling consequences that will soon be felt throughout the entire world. America itself will not be left untouched, for it is this country that will now strain and struggle against itself as it attempts to elude the coming Armageddon that will inevitably test its willits spiritand even its founding principles, towards remaining the true leader of the free world. Yet, another era in history is quickly emerging. And with it a new nations leadership that truly believes that its time has come. Its iron-will belief system is so strong, that its success will ultimately come not from its own military might, but rather from an unraveling of the international stage towards a veiled co-existence. Against this background, a sinister plan for a nuclear holocaust has been conceived. Its chief architect is not a person of self-control, but rather a psychopathic madman intent on becoming the most powerful and feared individual of all time. His weapon of choice is neither guns nor direct threats, but rather the devils very own deception of coy innocence. Anarchy in America....Armageddons arrival.... Ascension of a Dark Horse nation the end of days....is about to begin.

This book explores the question of why fishing communities continue their struggle to survive, despite often calamitous changes in ecology and economy. Using historical ethnography as a lens through which to understand how fishers of the Bigouden region of France and their families have reinvented themselves, Menzies argues that local identity plays an important role in their perseverance as global capitalist pressures continually force them to reorganize or disappear entirely. Touching on many concepts that are fundamental to anthropology—culture, identity, kinship, work, political economy, and globalization—and filled with personal stories and warmth, this ethnography will be a welcome teaching tool for instructors and an enticing read for students.
