The rise of an impressive new species of older man is hilariously and perceptively charted by journalist, broadcaster and producer Nick Baker. Groovy old men still move with the times. They're still into sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, still work, and see age as no reason to stop having fun. They were present at the birth of youth culture in the 50s, sighing with relief at missing National Service and reeling from the impact of Bill Haley. They're now part of a new breed of older men who are, as Nick Baker brilliantly argues in this unique, funny and occasionally touching book, on the march."Groovy Old Men" is packed full of interviews with experts and archetypes like designer Sir Paul Smith, radical Tariq Ali, veteran writer Ray Gosling, bioethics expert Professor John Harris and Mark Ellen, former member of Ugly Rumours, the band once led by Tony Blair. And lots of ordinary Groovy Old Men too. A humorous, entertaining and occasionally provocative commentary on older male life in the noughties, Nick Baker's book invents then dissects the Groovy Old Men phenomenon, and peers into the glamorous world of Groovy Old Men of the future.

Ethics and Humanity pays to tribute to Jonathan Glover, a pioneering figure whose thought and personal influence have had a significant impact on applied philosophy. In topics that include genetic engineering, abortion, euthanasia, war, and moral responsibility, Glover has made seminal contributions. The papers collected here, written by some of the most distinguished contemporary moral philosophers, address topics to which Glover has contributed, with particular emphasis on problems of conflict discussed in his book, Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century. There are also moving testaments to the influence Glover has had on colleagues, students, and friends. Glover himself contributes a series of fine replies, which constitute an important addition to his published work.

This book contains interviews with thirty men who cared for partners with AIDS, and who all -- from both a humanist and religious perspective -- recognize that in the act of caring, and, more importantly, in the special dynamic that being gay men in a partnership has, there is a deep spiritual component. While several of the interviewees rejected organized religion in their coming out and living as gay men, all suggest that their lives have been deepened through two components of all faiths: the act of service and unconditional love.

This unbelievable, “thoroughly enjoyable” story of the book that shocked censors and (of course) went on to worldwide notoriety (The New York Times). In the early fall of 1958, the already-notorious Olympia Press in Paris published a novel entitled Candy—an erotic, Rabelaisian satire loosely based on Voltaire’s Candide written by Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg under the pseudonym Maxwell Kenton. The novel was banned by French censors, reissued by Olympia’s intrepid publisher under the title Lollipop, re-banned, and again reissued. It became one of the most talked-about novels of the 1960s, selling millions of copies in America alone and spawning a Hollywood movie. Here, the hilarious, rebellious, sometimes tragic story of Candy’s public career is recounted in full, from the book’s humble beginnings in late 1950s Paris, through the authors’ wily, often self-destructive business dealings with their equally wily French publisher, to its chaotic and controversial publication in the United States. “In a magnificent epistolary style” The Candy Men follows Candy’s underground-to-mainstream success with unblinking scrutiny on the details, including the legal shenanigans that surrounded it, the blatant piracy that plagued it, and the star-studded cast that helped make it into one of the worst movies ever made (Publishers Weekly).
