A Savage Mirror Excerpt :

A Savage Mirror is about the New World, royal ritual, and the sensibilities that defined a new class of elites. It takes as its starting point the royal entry of Henri II into Rouen in 1550. By all accounts, this ritual was among the most spectacular ever staged. It included an "exact" replica of a Brazilian village, with fifty "savages" kidnapped from the New World. The book aims to understand what the French made of these Brazilian cannibals, and the significance of putting them in a festival honoring the king. The resulting analysis provides an investigation of France's changing social structure, its religious beliefs, its humanist culture, and its complicated commercial and symbolic relations with the New World. The book will appeal not only to scholars of early modern history, but to those interested in cross-cultural contact, cultural studies, civic ritual, museography, and history of literature, science, religion, art, and anthropology.

Savage Earth Excerpt :

Thousands of years ago an ancient peace-loving alien culture called the Argolians visited Earth and helped humanity take hold, and as a result, took the little planet under its wing. Later, after watching most of their race brutally slaughtered by the Kontarians, the last few remaining Argolians flee with the object the evil Kontarians are lusting after—the Stone of Unarl, a living gem that possesses incredible power. Now the Argolians are back to help save Earth, the last of the Argolians’ sister planets, which is in danger of being destroyed by the Kontarians. Aware that the sudden appearance of a group of aliens on Earth would cause more havoc than good, the Argolians have chosen one reluctant human to try and save the planet. After intensive training, John Savage takes command of the Argolians’ “gift,” a small craft that is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. Can Earth’s newest hero succeed? To do so Savage must not only overcome his own fears of failure, but also defeat the Kontarian spies placed on Earth years before. These aliens will do anything to possess Savage’s ship and delay his training until the Kontarian fleet arrives.

Savage s Recruit Excerpt :

Take one pretty brat with a defiant streak a mile wide, add a strict military man with a mission to achieve, throw in a handful of missile owning terrorists and what you have is a recipe for a hot bottomed, hard handed romantic spanking thriller. Being gifted ain't easy. At thirty two, chronic singleton Zora Matthews is quite content with a life of frequent drinks and occasional employment. At least, she thinks she is, in between hangovers and job terminations. Older, wiser Captain Brett Savage is a serious man with a serious problem. A Bulgarian terrorist cell has a nuclear missile in their possession and it's up to his unit to neutralize the threat. But this is no ordinary mission. To deactivate the missile, they're going to need someone in the room. Someone with a mind like a machine. The discovery of a little known civilian mathematical genius with just the skill set needed to get the job done gives Savage hope, but when he attempts to retrieve his newest recruit he discovers that Zora isn't your typical nerd. She's used to a life of hard partying and even harder rebellion - and she's none too receptive to the domineering man who walks into her life and tells her he'll be taking over.

Gunfight at the Eco Corral Excerpt :

Most film critics point to classic conflicts—good versus evil, right versus wrong, civilization versus savagery—as defining themes of the American Western. In this provocative examination of Westerns from Tumbleweeds (1925) to Rango (2011), Robin L. Murray and Joseph K. Heumann argue for a more expansive view that moves beyond traditional conflicts to encompass environmental themes and struggles. The environment, after all, is the fundamental stage for most western stories, from land rush dramas that pit “sod busters” against ranchers to conflicts between mining-town communities and corporations. Because environmental issues lie at the forefront of so many conflicts today, Murray and Heumann believe that the Western is ripe for such new examination. Drawing on perspectives from both film studies and environmental history, the authors show how western films frequently deal with issues related to land use and different ways of looking at the natural world. In films as diverse as Gene Autry musicals, early John Wayne B-Westerns, and revisionist critiques such as the 2010 remake of True Grit, resources are exploited in the name of progress. Beginning with an analysis of two iconic Westerns, Shane and The Searchers, Murray and Heumann identify the environmental dichotomies—previously overlooked by critics—that are broached in both films, and they clarify the history that lies behind the environmental debates in these films and many others. How do Westerns respond to the historical contexts they present? And what do those responses suggest about American views of nature and its exploitation? The conflicts these movies address grow out of differing views of progress, frequently in relation to technology. The authors show that such binary oppositions tend to blur when examined closely, demonstrating that environmental issues are often more complex than we realize.

A Savage Dreamland Excerpt :

The first of its kind: an exploration of one of the most mysterious countries in the world, as told by one of the first outsiders to access the country in its entirety For almost fifty years Burma was ruled by a paranoid military dictatorship and isolated from the outside world. A historic 2015 election swept an Aung San Suu Kyi-led civilian government to power and was supposed to usher in a new golden era of democracy and progress, but Burma remains unstable and undeveloped, a little-understood country. Nothing is straightforward in this captivating land that is home to a combustible mix of races, religions and resources. A Savage Dreamland: Journeys in Burma reveals a country where temples take priority over infrastructure, fortune tellers thrive and golf courses are carved out of war zones. Setting out from Yangon, the old capital, David Eimer travels throughout this enigmatic nation, from the tropical south to the Burmese Himalayas in the far north, via the Buddhist-centric heartland and the jungles and mountains where rebel armies fight for autonomy in the longest-running civil wars in recent history. The story of modern Burma is told through the voices of the people Eimer encounters along the way: former political exiles, the squatters in Yangon's shanty towns, radical monks, Rohingya refugees, princesses and warlords, and the ethnic minorities clustered along the country's frontiers. In his vivid and revelatory account of life, history, culture and politics, David Eimer chronicles the awakening of a country as it returns to the global fold and explores a fractured nation, closed to foreigners for decades. Authoritative and ground-breaking, A Savage Dreamland: Journeys in Burma is set to be a modern classic of travel writing.

A Savage Order Excerpt :

The most violent places in the world today are not at war. More people have died in Mexico in recent years than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. These parts of the world are instead buckling under a maelstrom of gangs, organized crime, political conflict, corruption, and state brutality. Such devastating violence can feel hopeless, yet some places-from Colombia to the Republic of Georgia-have been able to recover. In this powerfully argued and urgent book, Rachel Kleinfeld examines why some democracies, including our own, are crippled by extreme violence and how they can regain security. Drawing on fifteen years of study and firsthand field research-interviewing generals, former guerrillas, activists, politicians, mobsters, and law enforcement in countries around the world-Kleinfeld tells the stories of societies that successfully fought seemingly ingrained violence and offers penetrating conclusions about what must be done to build governments that are able to protect the lives of their citizens. Taking on existing literature and popular theories about war, crime, and foreign intervention, A Savage Order is a blistering yet inspiring investigation into what makes some countries peaceful and others war zones, and a blueprint for what we can do to help.
