Based on the acclaimed Joseph Heller novel, Catch-22 follows the adventures and misadventures of a US air squadron in Italy in World War II. Catch-22 premieres May 17.
More about the series:
Christopher Abbott is Yossarian, a bombardier, whose frantic obsession every time he goes up on a mission is “to come down alive”. His odds of success at such a simple aim keep getting worse, because Colonel Cathcart (Kyle Chandler) keeps raising the number of missions the men have to fly. More than the retreating Germans, the real enemy for Yossarian and his rag-tag bunch of friends is the bureaucracy of the military, inverting logic at every turn. The pinnacle of this is Catch-22, a military by-law which states that if you fly your missions, you’re crazy, and don’t have to fly them; all you have to do is ask. But if you as not to, then you’re sane, and so you have to fly them. George Clooney stars as the barking mad, parade-obsessed Scheisskopf. Hugh Laurie is the mellow, slightly checked-out Major de Coverley. Clooney directs the six-episode series, along with Grant Heslov and Ellen Kuras.

‘In the beginning there was Egan Drake, the genius who dreamed of spreading mankind among the galaxies. Then came Megan, who took on her brother’s mantle and made his imaginings real. She gathered around her the finest in their fields – biology and astronautics, computer science and fusion propulsion – and fired them with her vision.
And finally was born The Project: a thousand tiny spacecraft crawling like electromechanical wombs towards the stars, each bearing the genetic seeds for a future colony of man. And some fell on stony ground and some fell on fertile ground, and some…’
Blurb from the 1986 Sphere paperback edition. Egan Drake is, or was, what you would call bipolar in today’s psychological lexicon. Possessing a high degree of manic creativity and occasional freak genius he puts together a scheme to send out automated ‘seedships’ into space, some of which may land on another inhabitable world. And so the tale of one of the ships is told by its ‘defender’; a humanoid AI which possesses an amalgam of the major scientists working on the project and the dominant personality, Don Brink, an ex-soldier and mercenary whose specialized knowledge is needed to deal with any unexpected incidents.
The current action is interspersed with flashbacks of the project, set up by Megan Drake after her brother’s death. She tracks down and hires several vital men for her mission. The ship finds a habitable world, but one which contains the still active remnants of a robotic defense force, awaiting the return of their biological masters who are some thirty thousand years late. Suffice to say that the defender helps the ship to establish a new human colony on the new world and, in the process, comes to terms with himself as a sexless, but sentient, humanoid.
To be honest, the flashbacks are somewhat dull and give the impression of a tragically depressing set of people who would surely not have had the enthusiasm to carry through such a project. In contrast, the futuristic elements are full of colour and life.

Published for the first time in paperback, Rosalind Sydie's critically acclaimed study examines the work and thought of Durkheim, Weber, Marx, Engels, focusing on what these influential thinkers had to say about the nature of gender relationships. She brings to light assumptions at the foundation of classical social theory, and the effect that these assumptions have had on the perception of women.
This book examines the work of the classical social theorists --Durkheim, Weber, Marx, Engels and Freud -- from a feminist perspective.The focus is on the theoretical approach adopted by each theorist in his examination of the nature of human nature and, more specifically, the nature of sex relationships.

"Stunning...Maryse Conde's imaginative subversion of historical records forms a critque of contemporary American society and its ingrained racism and sexism."
THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE At the age of seven, Tituba watched as her mother was hanged for daring to wound a plantation owner who tried to rape her. She was raised from then on by Mama Yaya, a gifted woman who shared with her the secrets of healing and magic. But it was Tituba's love of the slave John Indian that led her from safety into slavery, and the bitter, vengeful religion practiced by the good citizens of Salem, Massachusetts. Though protected by the spirits, Tituba could not escape the lies and accusations of that hysterical time.
As history and fantasy merge, Maryse Conde, acclaimed author of TREE OF LIFE and SEGU, creates the richly imagined life of a fascinating woman.
From Publishers Weekly
The author of the highly recommended intergenerational saga Tree of Life (Fiction Forecasts, June 29) moves from her native Guadeloupe to colonial New England in this potent novel. Revising the legend of a slave woman accused of practicing witchcraft and imprisoned in Salem, Mass., in 1692, Conde freely imagines Tituba's childhood and old age, endows her with what Davis calls a contemporary social consciousness, and allows her to narrate the tale.
Her pointedly political story indicts the Puritans' racism and hypocrisy and their contemporary manifestations. Conceived when an English sailor rapes an Ashanti captive on the slave ship Christ the King , Tituba grows up in Barbados but follows her beloved, John Indian, into servitude in America when he is sold to minister Samuel Parris. Charged with witchcraft when she heals Parris's wife and daughters, she shares a jail cell with Hester Prynne, who helps her plan her testimony before the Salem judges. Eventually reprieved, Tituba is bought by a Jew, himself persecuted, who frees her and gives her passage to Barbados. At once playful and searing, Conde's work critiques ostensibly white, male versions of history and literature by appropriating them.

From School Library Journal Grade 5-9-A history of sensational news reporting, beginning with the story of life on the moon as described by the New York Sun in 1835. The public's appetite for the scandalous and salacious is not peculiar to our time; Cohen tells how lurid reporting, accompanied by shocking photographs, helped William Randolph Hearst and others to increase circulation of their newspapers.
The author provides accounts of media coverage of some specific events such as the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the Sam Sheppard case, and the O. J. Simpson trial. Well-chosen, black-and-white illustrations, including several graphic photographs, appear throughout.
For a pro/con assessment of the media, William Barbour's The Mass Media (Greenhaven, 1994; o.p.) is still a good choice. However, Cohen's title is a worthy introduction for curious students. Linda W. Tilden, Cherry Hill Public Library, NJ Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist Beginning with a comical takeoff on sensational journalism, Cohen takes a look at journalism gone awry, making the facts every bit as absorbing as the most exaggerated tabloid.
Tracing the history of modern yellow journalism back to an 1835 New York Sun article describing alien life discovered on the moon, he strings together one fascinating story after another, illustrating how the public's voracious appetite for scandal empowers hack journalists.
Most of the book focuses on print media, though later chapters include discussion of the influence of television and the Internet on shaping public opinion on everything from Kennedy's election to Monica Lewinsky's notoriety. The book also treats readers to a brief history lesson that highlights people (Hearst, Winchell), places (death row, O.J.'s courtroom), and trials (Lindbergh, Sheppard) that have become part of popular culture.
Enhanced by vivid if occasionally gruesome photos, this is nonfiction so riveting it's almost impossible to put down. Roger Leslie Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved

Zorro is a 2005 novel by Chilean author Isabel Allende. Its subject is the pulp hero Diego de la Vega, better known as El Zorro (The Fox), who was featured in an early 20th-century novel. The novel takes the form of a biography and is the first origin story for this legendary character. In terms of material, it is a prequel to Johnston McCulley's 1919 novella The Curse of Capistrano, which first featured the character of Zorro. The story incorporates details from a variety of works that have featured the pulp hero, including the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro.

So when I came across Brotherman: The Odyssey Of Black Men In America - An Anthology, I was impressed, when I flipped it open, by its voluminous table of contents. There are one hundred and fifty excerpts from essays, novels, and speeches written by African American men, divided thematically into six sections, that span practically the whole of our existence here in America. The large span of time that these authors represent has a leavening effect right off the bat, largely allowing it to escape the ideological boundaries that often limit the appeal of a compilation.

This outstanding collection of writings by African-American males has been edited by Boyd (Down the Glory Road) and Allen (The Port Chicago Mutiny) with a commitment to inclusion and diversity. More than 100 pieces are organized by subjects such as forefathers, relationships, racism, sports, music and other themes that define the black man's experience. There are contributions from notables James Baldwin, Countee Cullen, Ralph Ellison, Jackie Robinson, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., but the editors also include material from emerging creative writers and political thinkers. The powerful opening excerpt by Frederick Douglass evokes his boyhood as a slave, and the collection closes with an eloquent discussion of the race problem today by Cornel West. A distinguished addition to black studies.
