  • Opiumby Pierre-Arnaud Chouvy

    I.B.Tauris 2009; US$ 14.95

    Opium: bitter, brownish, sticky - and highly addictive. But its impact goes beyond tales of personal pleasure or misery. It is a story played out on an international stage: major powers, local war lords, national governments - all have a stake in the continuing story that is illicit opium production. Pierre Chouvy exposes the politics behind illicit... more...

  • X Filmsby Alex Cox

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    British Cinema's oldest enfant terrible'. So remarked Philip French of Alex Cox, a description its recipient fully approves of. Alex Cox is the genuine article - a radical, international, independent filmmaker, who is also a good writer, insightful commentator on contemporary cinema and an expert critic of the power of Hollywood who grew up with a... more...

  • Alphavilleby Chris Darke

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 14.95

    A striking black-and-white hybrid of film noir and science fiction, Alphaville (1965) is now one of the most enduringly popular of Jean-Luc Godard's films of the 1960s. Working without sets, special effects, or even a script, Godard created a dystopian vision of a technocratic city of the future, which resonates with filmmakers today. Alphaville pits... more...

  • Beliefby Geth Evans

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    What am I to believe?' is perhaps the fundamental question of human existence. It is unlikely that most people reach the end of their lives without wondering what it has all been for and what happens next. But the question of belief is more than just academic, since what people believe is now more critical than ever. As G R Evans shows, an ignorance... more...

  • Cold Frontby David Fairhall

    I.B.Tauris 2010; US$ 14.95

    The Arctic: land of ice and the midnight sun; irresistible goal for explorers and adventurers; enduring source of romance and mystery - and now also a poignant and imperative indicator of the impact of climate change. As the ice cap shrinks, the geography of the entire arctic region changes: clear shipping channels replace immovable ice and inaccessible... more...

  • Return of Ulysses, Theby Edith Hall

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    Whether they focus on the bewitching song of the Sirens, his cunning escape from the cave of the terrifying one-eyed Cyclops, or the vengeful slaying of the suitors of his beautiful wife Penelope, the stirring adventures of Ulysses/Odysseus are amongst the most durable in human culture. The picaresque return of the wandering pirate-king is one of the... more...

  • Les Diaboliquesby Hayward Susan

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 14.95

    Les Diaboliques was a top grossing film in 1955. Clouzot shrouded his film in mystery and also radically changed the original story of the novel, heterosexualising the original lesbian plot. Les Diaboliques still intrigues perhaps due to its excessive ambiguities and numerous plot twists that make it a ‘film noir’ to end all ‘films noir’, and not least... more...

  • American Science Fiction TVby Jan Johnson-Smith

    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 14.95

    From Star Trek to Farscape and Stargate SG-1, and the epic series Babylon 5, Jan Johnson-Smith shows how, in line with national political upheavals in the 1960s, this vibrant and perplexing genre set about developing the myth of the Western frontier into deep space. Looking at the sense of wonder that infuses science fiction, she traces the genre back... more...

  • New Voices of Islamby Mehran Kamrava

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    Over the last decade, at a time when the forces of 'Islamic fundamentalism' appear to be the dominant face of Islam in the West, a vibrant and equally significant discourse has emerged from a number of prominent Muslim thinkers who wish to reformulate some of the main premises of Islamic theology and jurisprudence. The central goal of these 'New Islamists'... more...
