Our Word is Our Weapon: Selected Writings

Our Word is Our Weapon: Selected Writings Lowest new price: $66.06
Lowest used price: $27.46
List price: $24.95
Author: Subcomandante Marcos

In this landmark book, Seven Stories Press presents a powerful collection of literary, philosophical, and political writings of the masked Zapatista spokesperson, Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos. Introduced by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, and illustrated with beautiful black and white photographs, Our Word Is Our Weapon crystallizes "the passion of a rebel, the poetry of a movement, and the literary genius of indigenous Mexico."
Marcos first captured world attention on January 1, 1994, when he and an indigenous guerrilla group calling themselves "Zapatistas" revolted against the Mexican government and seized key towns in Mexico's southernmost state of Chiapas. In the six years that have passed since their uprising, Marcos has altered the course of Mexican politics and emerged an international symbol of grassroots movement-building, rebellion, and democracy. The prolific stream of poetic political writings, tales, and traditional myths that Marcos has penned since January 1, 1994 fill more than four volumes. Our Word Is Our Weapon presents the best of these writings, many of which have never been published before in English.
Throughout this remarkable book we hear the uncompromising voice of indigenous communities living in resistance, expressing through manifestos and myths the universal human urge for dignity, democracy, and liberation. It is the voice of a people refusing to be forgotten the voice of Mexico in transition, the voice of a people struggling for democracy by using their word as their only weapon.

Rodzianko

Rodzianko Lowest new price: $243.15
Lowest used price: $55.00
List price: $66.50
Author: Larry Witham

Vladimir Rodzianko, a prominent Orthodox priest, is known in the Soviet Union, Europe and the US. His notoriety begins with a prominent family line that extends to the birth of the Russian nation. After his family fled the Bolshevik revolution, his career evolved from emigrant priest to Russian-language broadcaster for the BBC and finally as a ruling bishop in America. By recounting Rodzianko's life, a parallel story emerges - the story of the Russian Orthodox Church from the 1917 Revolution to the Christian Millennium there in 1988. This story concludes in June 1990 with the election of a new Russian Orthodox patriarch in the era of glasnost. Moreover, this is a biography of a priest, Russian emigre and broadcaster, who confronts the reality of the Orthodox Church under communism.

All Things Censored

All Things Censored Lowest new price: $28.02
Lowest used price: $2.34
List price: $29.95
Author: Mumia Abu-Jamal
Brand: Brand: Seven Stories Press

More than 75 essays—many freshly composed by Mumia with the cartridge of a ball-point pen, the only implement he is allowed in his death-row cell—embody the calm and powerful words of humanity spoken by a man on Death Row. Abu-Jamal writes on many different topics, including the ironies that abound within the U.S. prison system and the consequences of those ironies, and his own case. Mumia's composure, humor, and connection to the living world around him represents an irrefutable victory over the "corrections" system that has for two decades sought to isolate and silence him.

The title, All Things Censored, refers to Mumia's hiring as an on-air columnist by National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," and subsequent banning from that venue under pressure from law and order groups.

The Media Were American: U.S. Mass Media in Decline

The Media Were American: U.S. Mass Media in Decline Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $6.00
List price: $76.95
Author: Jeremy Tunstall
Brand: Jeremy Tunstall

In 1977, Jeremy Tunstall published the landmark The Media Are American. In it, he argued that while much of the mass media originated in Europe and elsewhere, the United States dominated global media because nearly every mass medium became industrialized within the United States. With this provocative follow-up, Tunstall chronicles the massive changes that have taken place in the media over the past forty years--changes that have significantly altered the "balance of power" within the global media landscape. The Media Were American demonstrates that both the United States and its mass media have lost their previous moral leadership. Instead of sole American control of the world news flow, we now see a world media structure comprised of interlocking national, regional, and cultural systems.
From a relentlessly global point of view, Tunstall looks closely at China and India--and at their rapidly burgeoning populations--and also at the rise of the mass media in the Muslim world. He considers the role of the media in the collapse of the Soviet Union, the ascendance of the Brazilian and Mexican soap opera, the increasing strength of "Bollywood"--the national cinema output of India--and the relative decline in influence of U.S. media. Reconsidering the very notion of "global media," the book posits a reemergence of stronger national cultures and national media systems.

Words and Spaces

Words and Spaces Lowest new price: $46.00
Lowest used price: $82.86
List price: $70.99
Author: Stuart Saunders Smith

This volume is presented as a collection of primary research materials for scholars and artists. Each composer presents either a score or some form of documentation of one of his works and, in an accompanying essay, discusses his music in detail, exploring both its aesthetic and structural premises. The purpose of this book is not to present analyses or critical evaluations of this original and diverse body of works but rather, for the first time, to document the major activities of recent composers working in the important hybrid media of sound-text and sound-installation. It is hoped that this book will mark the beginning of a general recognition of the importance of such inter-media works as well as encourage future exploration of the aesthetic and structural innovations continued therein. Composers discussed include John Cage, Robert Ashley, Max Neuhaus, Alvin Lucier and Kenneth Gaburo.


The Whole World Is Watching: Mass Media in the Making and Unmaking of the New Left, With a New Preface

The Whole World Is Watching: Mass Media in the Making and Unmaking of the New Left, With a New Preface Lowest new price: $27.56
Lowest used price: $7.25
List price: $34.95
Author: Todd Gitlin
Brand: imusti

"The whole world is watching!" chanted the demonstrators in the Chicago streets in 1968, as the TV cameras beamed images of police cracking heads into homes everywhere. In this classic book, originally published in 1980, acclaimed media critic Todd Gitlin first scrutinizes major news coverage in the early days of the antiwar movement. Drawing on his own experiences (he was president of the Students for a Democratic Society in 1963-64) and on interviews with key activists and news reporters, he shows in detail how the media first ignore new political developments, then select and emphasize aspects of the story that treat movements as oddities. He then demonstrates how the media glare made leaders into celebrities and estranged them from their movement base; how it inflated the importance of revolutionary rhetoric, destabilizing the movement, then promoted "moderate" alternatives--all the while spreading the antiwar message. Finally, Gitlin draws together a theory of news coverage as a form of anti-democratic social management--which he sees at work also in media treatment of the anti-nuclear and other later movements.

Updated for 2003 with a new preface, The Whole World Is Watching is a subtle and sensitive book, true to the passions and ironic reversals of its subject, and filled with provocative insights that apply to the media's relationship with all activist movements.
