Nots is a virtuoso exploration of negation and negativity in theology, philosophy, art, architecture, postmodern culture, and medicine. In nine essays that range from nihility in Buddhism to the embodiment of negativity in disease, Mark C. Taylor looks at the surprising ways in which contrasting concepts of negativity intersect. In the first section of this book, Taylor discusses the question of the "not" in the religious thought of Anselm, Hegel, Derrida, and Nishitani. In the second part, he analyzes artistic efforts "to figure not" in the work of artists Arakawa and Madeline Gins, architect Daniel Libeskind, pop artist David Sallee, and pop icon Madonna. The final section consists of a deeply personal and scientifically informed chapter that discusses the workings of negativity in immunology and illness. Taylor's essays work toward a sense of the not as unnameable as it is irrepressible—an "unthinkable third" that falls between being and nonbeing. Bringing together concerns that span Taylor's early investigations of Hegel and Kierkegaard and recent studies of art and architecture, Nots is an important contribution by one of the most original and distinctive voices now writing on the American scene.

The Canadian media system, which in many respects is this society's "meeting ground"—its public square—is in the midst of a profound shift away from the foundations on which it has rested comfortably for decades. The publicly financed Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, long the backbone of the broadcasting system, is threatened by budget cuts and by technological change. The newspaper industry has fallen into the hands of a few powerful individuals. Huge global corporations and a vast communications revolution are dramatically altering the nature of news and entertainment. This book argues that unless action is taken these changes will narrow our access to the information we need as citizens and damage our capacity to communicate with each other and reflect on ourselves as a community. Power and Betrayal in the Canadian Media is a sweeping exploration of the Canadian media system and the impact it has on Canadian society, politics, and culture.

The secret history of MI6 - from the Cold War to the present day. The British Secret Service has been cloaked in secrecy and shrouded in myth since it was created a hundred years ago. Our understanding of what it is to be a spy has been largely defined by the fictional worlds of James Bond and John le Carre. THE ART OF BETRAYAL provides a unique and unprecedented insight into this secret world and the reality that lies behind the fiction. It tells the story of how the secret service has changed since the end of World War II and by focusing on the people and the relationships that lie at the heart of espionage, revealing the danger, the drama, the intrigue, the moral ambiguities and the occasional comedy that comes with working for British intelligence. From the defining period of the early Cold War through to the modern day, MI6 has undergone a dramatic transformation from a gung-ho, amateurish organisation to its modern, no less controversial, incarnation. Gordon Corera reveals the triumphs and disasters along the way. The grand dramas of the Cold War and after - the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 11 September 2001 attacks and the Iraq war - are the backdrop for the human stories of the individual spies whose stories form the centrepiece of the narrative. But some of the individuals featured here, in turn, helped shape the course of those events. Corera draws on the first-hand accounts of those who have spied, lied and in some cases nearly died in service of the state. They range from the spymasters to the agents they ran to their sworn enemies. Many of these accounts are based on exclusive interviews and access. From Afghanistan to the Congo, from Moscow to the back streets of London, these are the voices of those who have worked on the front line of Britain's secret wars. And the truth is often more remarkable than the fiction.

The story begins when prominent Beverly Hills psychiatrist, Dr. Joel Steiner, is shot and killed by an unknown intruder, on Steiner’s luxury yacht, the Sirocco. LAPD Det. Joe Kellermann and his partner, Det. Rick Ramirez, begin an immediate investigation into Dr. Steiner’s murder. Supposedly, “happily married,” the detectives soon learn Steiner was having a secret affair with one of his patients: a mystery-woman, know only as “Rita.” Upon further investigation, the mistress Rita Chandler, is found living in a beach-front bungalow on P.C.H. in Malibu. During the interrogation, Miss Chandler reveals that her affair with Steiner had become the ultimate fatal attraction. He was totally obsessed with her. When she tells him the affair is over, primarily because she has fallen in love with another man, Steve Ryan, he loses it; in a fit of rage he tells her: “If I can’t have you...nobody else will!” Steiner even threatens to kill her. A scene with Steve Ryan reaffirms Miss Chandler’s testimony that after the break-up, Steiner constantly spied on her, stalked her, made obscene phone calls, etc., finally forcing her to leave her Santa Barbara apartment. At the end of this scene, we are shocked, when Ryan reveals that Rita Chandler is HIV-positive. She has AIDS. In a scene, following, Kellermann’s superior officer, Capt. Frank McElroy, already has a list of four possible suspects: Rita Chandler, her boyfriend, Barbara Steiner, the “grieving widow,” and Steiner’s business partner, Dr. Sydney Zellman. This scene ends with a surprise visit from Diana Marlowe, from the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s office. She is here to see Kellermann with vital information concerning the Steiner case. Miss Marlowe reveals that about three months prior, Rita Chandler came into her Santa Barbara office and filed a complaint against Steiner. As incredible as it sounded, Miss Chandler was positive, Steiner had injected her with the deadly AIDS virus. Pregnant (with Steiner’s child) she had an abortion. Upon further investigation, the D.A.’s office learned that Steiner was treating three AIDS patients, including a gay man, named Larry Mosely. Genetic analysis of the virus that infected Miss Chandler, was shown to be identical to Mosely’s. Dr. Steiner was arrested, arraigned and released on $200,000 bond. His trial was scheduled to begin in a matter of weeks. Miss Marlowe explains, word “leaked out” of the D.A.’s office; Mosely’s gay and HIV status became public. He was suing Steiner for doctor-patient confidentiality. Kellermann immediately adds Larry Mosely to his possible-suspect list. Within 48 hours later, Kellermann is informed by Beverly Hills detective Gregg Juarez, that Diana Marlowe has been reported missing. She walked out of her hotel and hasn’t been seen since. This is followed by a $50,000 ransom hoax, perpetrated by an ex-con, Marlowe had “sent-up.” A sequence of events follows, wherein the detectives try to “flush out,” Larry Mosely. They learn that Mosely is “holed-up” in an L.A. Skid Row hotel. In the interrogation scene that follows, we see that Larry Mosely is dying. As the detectives wait for the hotel elevator to take them back to the first floor lobby, they suddenly hear a single gunshot from Mosely’s room. They discover he has committed suicide. Ten days after her disappearance, Diana Marlowe’s body is discovered in an Echo Park self storage locker; a single bullet wound to the chest. A ballistics report states that the weapon Mosely used to kill himself with, was the same one used to murder Miss Marlowe. The big break in the case comes when Bill Bradshaw, with the Los Angeles D.A.’s office contacts Kellermann. He states that a man, Tony Lesniak, being held prisoner a the Men’s Central Jail, has vital and important information concerning Dr. Steiner’s murder. For that information, Lesniak wants the D.A.’s office to cut him a deal. Lesniak states emphatically that on two separate occasion

Houston A. Baker Jr. condemns black intellectuals who, he believes, have turned their backs on the tradition of racial activism in America. In their literature, speeches, and academic and public behavior, Baker identifies a "hungry generation" eager for power, respect, and money. Critiquing his own impoverished childhood in the "Little Africa" section of Louisville, Kentucky, Baker seeks to understand the shaping of this new public figure. He also revisits classical sites of African American literary and historical criticism and critique, and devotes chapters to the writing and thought of such black academic superstars as Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson, and Henry Louis Gates Jr.; Hoover Institution senior fellow Shelby Steele; Yale law professor Stephen Carter; and Manhattan Institute fellow John McWhorter. Baker's provocative investigation into the disingenuous posturing of these and other individuals exposes what he deems to be a tragic betrayal of the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. He urges black intellectuals to reestablish both sacred and secular connections with local communities and rediscover the value of social responsibility. As Baker sees it, the mission of the black intellectual today is not to do great things but to do specific, racially based work that is in the interest of the black majority.

Crazy Kills "The worst I've ever seen" - that's how Sheriff Cecil Reed described the July 7, 1995 slayings of Carolyn Headrick, 44, and her mother Dora Ann Dalton, 62. The two were found in their home in rural DeKalb County, Alabama, where they'd been shot, stabbed and then even speared by a Native American style lance. Randy Headrick, Carolyn's husband, was the beneficiary of $325,000 in insurance money. But he swore he'd been at work when the murders were committed--and the police couldn't break his alibi. Bad News Headrick was a troublemaker who'd spent four years in a Texas prison for possession of a pipe bomb. More recently, he'd had an affair with a married woman--which his second wife Carolyn had discovered. The woman had later been harassed and her house had mysteriously burned down. The police knew Headrick was bad news but they just couldn't nail him on these murders. There was only one person who knew for sure if Headrick was the killer . . .
