Valnoir est parti en Corée du Nord avec Laibach

Il y a presque deux ans, on vous parlait de Valnoir, le mustang enragé du graphisme français, qui à l'époque passait ses journées à dessiner des posters avec du sang humain (et qui depuis a aussi utilisé des ossements pour son pote King Dude). Il rentrait alors d'un premier périple en Corée du Nord, où il avait tournée un clip avec des accordéonistes locaux qui reprenaient « Take on Me » de A-Ha. Ce n'était que le début. L'infâme Valnoir est retourné à Pyongyang il y a 3 semaines, et pas pour y beurrer des tickets de rationnement : il y a accompagné Laibach, qui est devenu le premier groupe de rock occidental (et par surcroît d'indus à tendance martiale) à se produire en Corée du Nord.

Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth

For the 1995 book about Michael Milken, see Daniel Fischel. The lectures and book had been originally scheduled for 2009, but were moved up to 2008 to avoid conflicting with Atwood's forthcoming novel after the latter book was delayed by its publisher. The content examines borrowing and lending from financial, psychological, theological, literary, and ecological points of view. Its release coincided with extensive media coverage of the recent financial crisis which led numerous critics to comment on the book's timeliness. In the Canadian market, the book peaked at #1 on the The Globe and Mail bestseller list on October 25 and out-sold all previous Massey Lecture books.

What does your bookshelf say about you?

A lifelong reader myself, I've always had an obsession with seeing a person's bookshelf, to get a sense of what they've brought inside their home and their head. Bookshelves are universal in that almost everyone has one, and unique in that no two collections are the same. They reflect much more than just the book-buying habits of their owner. Photograph: Lori McCaskill Sharing your shelf is sharing yourself – showcasing the building blocks that have crafted your knowledge, personality, and identity.

Preface: The War Against Cliche by Martin Amis. At one time, "Literature and Society" was a phrase so much on everyone's lips that it earned itself an abbreviation: Lit & Soc.

Preface: The War Against Cliche by Martin Amis

And Lit & Soc, I seemed to remember, had been for me a long-running enthusiasm. When complacently preparing my new collection of essays and reviews, The War Against Cliché, I planned to assemble my pieces on literature and society (pieces on FR Leavis and Lionel Trilling, and on lesser figures like Ian Robinson and Denis Donoghue). But when I leafed through the massed manuscripts I found only a handful of essays, all of them written, rather ominously, in the early 70s (when I was in my early 20s). Having re-read them, I toyed with the idea of including a nice little section called something like "Literature and Society: The Vanished Debate". Then I decided that my debate had better vanish too.

Review: The War Against Cliche by Martin Amis

By the time of the last he was past 50 and I was over 40. These are the facts, and I for one find them stunning. All those years of - as Richard Tull sees it in The Information - homework!

The Sixth Wave

Not only is it difficult in foresight and easy in hindsight, but it also carries the possibility that you’ll be completely and utterly wrong. THE SIXTH WAVE makes a very bold prediction indeed. It predicts the next wave of innovation. The act of predicting the future does have some advantages, whether you’re right or not. Predictions give you something to test your ideas against and can put some of the big and little things you see every day into a broader context. And then there are the very little things that happen on a big scale.

What do all these things have in common? The first half of THE SIXTH WAVE explores the five previous waves of innovation, and how they were shaped by market forces, technologies and the very glue that holds societies together.

This book seeks to identify the forces which explain how and why some parts of the world have grown rich and others have lagged behind.

Encompassing 2000 years of history, part 1 begins with the Roman Empire and explores the key factors that have influenced economic development in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe. Part 2 covers the development of macroeconomic tools of analysis from the 17th century to the present. Part 3 looks to the future and considers what the shape of the world economy might be in 2030.

Combining both the close quantitative analysis for which Professor Maddison is famous with a more qualitative approach that takes into account the complexity of the forces at work, this book provides students and all interested readers with a totally fascinating overview of world economic history.
