In the fourth book of "The Road To Key West" series, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell once again find themselves hip-deep in madcap adventure - from bizarre to hysterical. The captivating diary of an amateur archeologist sends our intrepid explorers on a journey into the heart of the Panamanian jungle, in search of La cueva de Esmeralda (The Emerald Cave), and a lost Spanish treasure. But local brigand, Tu Phat Shong, and his gang of cutthroats are searching for the same treasure. It's a cat and mouse game - up the perilous Fangaso River, through the jungle and the boisterous mining towns, and into "The Village of the Witches," where nothing is as it seems... If that weren't enough, one of the Caribbean's nastiest drug lords has a score to settle with our reluctant heroes. (Something to do with an ancient golden medallion they "borrowed.") The word is out. There's a price on Kansas and Will's heads, and a conga line of hit men trailing them. As they careen across the Southern Hemisphere, our adventurers encounter some fascinating ladies as well, and experience an extraordinary romance. Be careful what you wish for."Somewhere On The Road To Key West" offers the standard plethora of zany characters: Rufus, the mystical Rastaman, who's convinced that luck is nothing more than "da gods adjusting da rabbit ears on da television of life", Benny The Rat, a struggling larcenist who's taking correspondence courses to become a bullfighter, Crazy Eddie and his aging but fabulous "Goose," Sundance, the sociopathic hypochondriac, and last but not least, "The Griffins." (There are some things you just don't mess with - like bubonic plague, nuclear weapons, and The Griffins...)So sit back, pour yourself margarita, and slide into the Caribbean for another wild and crazy caper. You're somewhere on The Road, again.

In August of 1971, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell set out to simply become commercial divers in the Florida Keys, but they encounter a parade of bizarre characters, from part-time pirates and heartless larcenists, to wacky Jamaican soothsayers and a handful of drug smugglers. Adding even more flavor to this Caribbean brew is a complicated romance, and a pre-antediluvian artifact created by a distant congregation who truly understood the term “pyramid power.” Original.

The political era one is living through always feels messy and fragmented from the inside. But looking back from the future, the first two decades of the 21st century will come to be seen as the moment when the politics of culture and identity rose to challenge the previous politics of leftand right. David Goodhart's searing analysis considers this shift through his novel paradigm of the "nowhere" class and the "somewhere" class.Members of the "Nowhere" class dominate our culture and society. They tend to do well at school, then usually move from home to a boarding university in their late teens and on to a career in the professions that might take them to a capital city or even abroad for a year or two. Such people haveportable "achieved' identities, based on educational and career success, which makes them generally comfortable with new places and people. The"Somewhere" people are by definition more rooted and have ascribed identities based on group belonging and particular places, which is why they often find rapid change disturbing. One core group of Somewheres are often "left behind" - mainly older white working class men with little education.They have lost economically with the decline of well paid jobs for people with little education and culturally, too, with the disappearance of a distinctive working-class culture and the marginalization of their social conservatism in the public conversation. However Somewhere ambivalence aboutrecent social trends spreads far beyond this core group and is shared by many in all social classes.The broad ideology of Nowhere people can be characterized as "progressive individualism." By contrast, the Somewheres are more socially conservative by instinct. This book will contend that the Nowhere people have counted for too much in the past generation and populist parties, such as the TeaParty, have emerged in part as a democratic counter-balance to that dominance. In a democracy the Somewheres cannot, however, be ignored.

A photo memoir of one man’s travels through America that is as sprawling and chaotic as the country itself. One day James A. Reeves realized that he no longer understood his country or what he should be doing in it. There was a time when the road to manhood was clear—go to war, find a job with a big company, wear a tie, and start a family —but then the wars got strange and companies changed. He decided to go for a drive to clear his head. What resulted is a scattershot journey spanning five years, forty thousand miles, twelve speeding tickets, and several moments of unexpected kindness through the neon corridors and dark corners of America. Reeves drove along the back roads taking pictures and looking for answers, kept company by the nervous chatter of talk radio and the ambient drone of twenty-four-hour diners, as he drifted toward a slow reckoning with his own compulsions and unexpected loss.
