All-American athlete, scholar, renowned baritone, stage actor, and social activist, Paul Robeson (1898-1976) was a towering figure and a trailblazer many times over. He made perhaps his biggest impact, however, in the medium of film. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson managed to become a top-billed movie star around the world during the time of Jim Crow America, always striving to use film to educate viewers about equality, democracy, and the rights of workers. Though he eventually left movies behind, using his international celebrity to speak on behalf of those denied their civil liberties and ultimately becoming a victim of ideological persecution himself, Robeson left a film legacy that continues to speak eloquently of the long and difficult journey of a courageous and outspoken African American. DISC ONE - ICON: The Emperor Jones (1933), Paul Robeson: Tribute to an Artist (1979) DISC TWO - OUTSIDER: Body and Soul (1925), Borderline (1930) DISC THREE - PIONEER: Sanders of the River (1935), Jericho (1937) DISC FOUR - CITIZEN OF THE WORLD: The Proud Valley (1940), Native Land (1942).

 $ 75 AMERICAN WAR: A NOVEL BY OMAR EL AKKAD (CD)

"Powerful... As haunting a postapocalyptic universe as Cormac McCarthy [created] in The Road, and as devastating a look as the fallout that national events have on an American family as Philip Roth did in The Plot Against America... Omar El Akkad's debut novel, American War, is an unlikely mash-up of unsparing war reporting and plot elements familiar to readers of the recent young-adult dystopian series The Hunger Games and Divergent." -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times An audacious and powerful debut novel: a second American Civil War, a devastating plague, and one family caught deep in the middle-a story that asks what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies and deadly weapons upon itself. Sarat Chestnut, born in Louisiana, is only six when the Second American Civil War breaks out in 2074. But even she knows that oil is outlawed, that Louisiana is half underwater, and that unmanned drones fill the sky. When her father is killed and her family is forced into Camp Patience for displaced persons, she begins to grow up shaped by her particular time and place. But not everyone at Camp Patience is who they claim to be. Eventually Sarat is befriended by a mysterious functionary, under whose influence she is turned into a deadly instrument of war. The decisions that she makes will have tremendous consequences not just for Sarat but for her family and her country, rippling through generations of strangers and kin alike.

 $ 75 BLACK POWER: THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY AND DEFINING BLACK POWER (MP3 CD) (CD)

The classic African-American studies standard from Pacifica Radio Archives, used in classroom curricula around the world. This series of three CD's begins in 1954 when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on an Alabama bus: a simple yet courageous act that ushered in the modern-day civil rights movement. But as these historic voices reveal, the actions of Rosa Parks also sparked a debate over which strategy African Americans should use to gain equality and human rights: integration, separation or revolution? This 3-CD set serves as a history lesson for the young-and a reminder to those who lived through those times-that the issue of African American political power is complex and the field of thought on the subject is diverse.

 $ 75 DATED EMCEES BY CHINAKA HODGE (CD)

Chinaka Hodge came of age along with hip-hop-and its influence on her suitors became inextricable from their personal interactions. Form blends with content in Dated Emcees as she examines her love life through the lens of hip-hop's best known orators, characters, archetypes and songs, creating a new and inventive narrative about the music that shaped the craggy heart of a young woman poet, just as it also changed the global landscape of pop. Praise for Dated Emcees: "In the old tellings hip-hop was a woman, a certain kind-one needing, even begging to be saved. In Dated Emcees, Chinaka Hodge gives her a voice and she tells of her loves and desires, her traumas and pains in words as hard, as lit, as loving, cunning, cutting, ecstatic, as tender and devastating as her big world requires. This is poetry that, in its infinite power and intimate grace, will still turn in your mind long after the music is over." - Jeff Chang, author of Who We Be: A Cultural History of Race in Post-Civil Rights America. "Hodge writes with an unpredictable, rare honesty. This collection quietly and simply illustrates love in a complicated world." - Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino

 $ 75 THE CASE AGAINST SUGAR BY GARY TAUBES (CD)

From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening expose that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick. Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

 $ 75 THE SOULS OF BLACK FOLK (2-CD SET), W.E.B DUBOIS (CD)

"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line," writes Du Bois, in one of the most prophetic works in all of American literature. First published in 1903, this collection of 15 essays dared to describe the racism that prevailed at that time in America-and to demand an end to it. Du Bois' writing draws on his early experiences, from teaching in the hills of Tennessee, to the death of his infant son, to his historic break with the conciliatory position of Booker T. Washington. Du Bois received a doctorate from Harvard in 1895 and became a professor of economics and history at Atlanta University. His dynamic leadership in the cause of social reform on behalf of his fellow blacks anticipated and inspired much of the black activism of the 1960s. The Souls of Black Folk is a classic in the literature of civil rights. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (1868-1963) was one of the greatest African American intellectuals - a sociologist, historian, novelist, and activist whose astounding career spanned the nation's history from Reconstruction to the civil rights movement. Born in Massachusetts and educated at Fisk, Harvard, and the University of Berlin, his masterpiece remains his most studied and popular work. Its insights into black life at still ring true today.

Trumponomics. Wall Street likes what it sees in the 45th president. The stock market is way up. The reality TV star heads up one of the most pro-corporate administrations in U.S. history. After railing against elites Trump's cabinet is loaded with Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan honchos. Millionaires and billionaires are staffing key positions. It's the wealthiest cabinet in history. Deregulation of banking is high on their to-do list. Critics are calling Trump's economic policies warmed over trickle down Reaganomics. Remember the slogan, a rising tide lifts all boats? Thing is only the yachts go up, the canoes and rowboats sink to the bottom. The New Yorker says, "Trump's proposed tax cuts would greatly accentuate inequality" and his "protectionist impulses, meanwhile, almost certainly won't bring back lost manufacturing jobs, but they could spark a damaging trade war."

 $ 75 WE WERE FEMINISTS ONCE: FROM RIOT GRRRL TO COVERGIRL - ANDI ZEISLER (CD)

Feminism has hit the big time. Once a dirty word brushed away with a grimace, "feminist" has been rebranded as a shiny label sported by movie and pop stars, fashion designers, and multi-hyphenate powerhouses like Beyonce. It drives advertising and marketing campaigns for everything from wireless plans to underwear to perfume, presenting what's long been a movement for social justice as just another consumer choice in a vast market. Individual self-actualization is the goal, shopping more often than not the means, and celebrities the mouthpieces. But what does it mean when social change becomes a brand identity? Feminism's splashy arrival at the center of today's media and pop-culture marketplace, after all, hasn't offered solutions to the movement's unfinished business. Planned Parenthood is under sustained attack, women are still paid 77 percent-or less-of the man's dollar, and vicious attacks on women, both on- and offline, are utterly routine. Andi Zeisler, a founding editor of Bitch Media, draws on more than twenty years' experience interpreting popular culture in this biting history of how feminism has been co-opted, watered down, and turned into a gyratory media trend. Surveying movies, television, advertising, fashion, and more, Zeisler reveals a media landscape brimming with the language of empowerment, but offering little in the way of transformational change. Witty, fearless, and unflinching, We Were Feminists Once is the story of how we let this happen, and how we can amplify feminism's real purpose and power.

L.A. Kauffman talks about the history of radical action in the U.S. beginning May Day 1971, when an audacious collection of radical announced that "If the government won't stop the war, we'll stop the government." The extraordinary story of a nearly forgotten action in Washington, D.C. leads into a discussion of movements from the anti-nuclear power protests of the 1970s and 80s to the AIDS action movement and the 1999 Battle of Seattle, all woven together through a set of organizing structures and tactics heavily influenced by the feminist and radical queer movements. Kauffman is the author of the new book, DIRECT ACTION: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism.

Train Your Brain for Optimal Stress Resilience. How does a healthy brain handle stress? It responds in the moment, then safely releases the emotional energy-yet modern life confronts us with new forms of stress that often confuse and overload our natural coping instincts. With Neurosculpting for Stress Relief, Lisa Wimberger provides essential practices for retraining your brain to deal with stress in a healthy way. "In my 30 years as a teacher and Neurosculpting® coach," says Wimberger, "these are the most effective techniques I've found for transforming the way our nervous system reacts to stress." These five guided meditations will give you the tools to: * Scan the body to reveal the sources of stress and release stagnant energy. * Defuse the charged emotions around stressful situations. * Change habitual "scripts" so you can consciously choose how you react to stress. * Access your inner healing resources to become more flexible, creative, and joyful. It's easy to tell ourselves that we shouldn't worry or stress out, but without the right tools it's easier said than done. "I've used these practices to great effect in helping first responders and clients in the most stressful occupations," says Lisa Wimberger. Now this exceptional teacher brings you scientifically grounded meditations to revolutionize the way you deal with stress with Neurosculpting for Stress Relief.

Our words have the power to create profound healing-or incredible suffering. Yet even with the best intentions, it is often difficult to express ourselves in ways that build harmony and trust. Speaking Peace presents a seminal four-part model you can use immediately to connect to the spirit of love and generosity within you, and start contributing to the wellbeing of everyone you relate to. Join Marshall Rosenberg, the visionary author of Nonviolent Communication, to learn: How to use your natural empathy to defuse stressful situations and safely confront anger, fear, and other emotions: * Proven skills for overcoming "dehumanizing" communication patterns that block compassion. * How to see through the eyes of others to foster understanding, and more. When you convey "what is alive in you"-your true feelings, and the values and desires behind them-you establish honest, nurturing relationships that eventually fulfill everyone's needs, teaches Marshall Rosenberg. Align your speech with your heart's purest depths with Speaking Peace.

 $ 180 PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES ( AUDIOBOOK) BY HOWARD ZINN (CD)

For much of his life, historian Howard Zinn has been chronicling American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official version taught in schools -- with its emphasis on great men in high places -- to focus on the street, the home, and the workplace. Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, Zinn's A People's History of the United States is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of -- and in the words of -- its women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers. Here we learn that many of our country's greatest battles - labor laws, women's rights, racial equality -- were carried out at the grassroots level, against steel-willed resistance. This edition of A People's History of the United States features insightful analysis of some of the most important events in this country in the past one hundred years. Featuring a preface and afterword read by the author himself, this audio continues Howard Zinn's important contribution to a complete and balanced understanding of American history.

 $ 180 POLISHING THE MIRROR - AN AUDIOBOOK BY RAM DASS (CD)

Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a cosmic moment of the heart opening. More commonly, it happens when we remove the dust from the mirror of our spiritual heart with daily practice-to see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature. For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love and brought back insights as his service to others. With Polishing the Mirror, he gathers together his essential teachings for being and loving, here and now, in the eternal present. For those just starting on the path, this is a primer for living from the spiritual heart. For those already practicing it, is a reference point for daily life in the spirit. In this audiobook, read by coauthor Rameshwar Das, listeners will discover perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and guidance into Ram Dass's own spiritual practices, including: * Bhakti Yoga-devotion, opening our hearts to unconditional love. * Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life. * Karma Yoga-transformation through selfless service. * Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom. * Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation, mantra, and more. Polishing the Mirror is Ram Dass's invitation to experience who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love.

 $ 180 THE EMPATH'S SURVIVAL GUIDE (6-CD SET) BY JUDITH ORLOFF (CD)

What Is the Difference Between Having Empathy and Being an Empath? "Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain," says Dr. Judith Orloff. "But for empaths, it goes much further. We actually feel others' emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have." The Empath's Survival Guide is an invaluable resource for empaths who want to develop coping skills in a high-stimulus world while embracing their gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection. In this unabridged recording of The Empath's Survival Guide read by Pam Tierney, Dr. Orloff shares practical, empowering, and loving advice for supporting empaths through their unique challenges-and for loved ones to better understand an empath'[s needs and gifts. Here listeners will discover crucial practices, including: * Exercises to identify where you are on the empathy spectrum. * Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue. * Effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires. * How to find the right work that feeds you. * How to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed. * Guidance for parenting empathic children. * Awakening the empath's gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings. For any sensitive person who's been told to "grow a thick skin," here is a guide for staying open while building resilience, exploring your singular gifts, and feeling welcomed by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.

 $ 50 AMERICANA BY RAY DAVIES (CD)

This is Ray Davies' first new album in 10 years. It follows his acclaimed 2013 memoir of the same name, and uses the book as both source material and jumping off point. Davies wrote and arranged all the music on "Americana'" and co-produced the album with Guy Massey and John Jackson with the Jayhawks serving as Davies' backing band. 'Americana' was recorded in London at Konk Studios, the legendary studio founded by The Kinks in 1973. The album is an autobiographical work, taking inspiration from the vital role America has played in Davies' life over five decades. It also features a number of short spoken-word passages from the memoir. In Davies' own words, "America is such a big story, a vast landscape, you can get lost in it. It's possible in America to go ahead and have a new start somewhere."

 $ 50 FLOR DE PIEL BY MARTIRIO (CD)

It's hard to put a finger on the mercurial muse of Spanish chanteuse Martirio and guitarist/producer Raul Rodriguez on Flor de Piel, her second domestic effort for Sunnyside. Much like they did on her exceptional debut, Mucho Corazon, the two (and their crew of backing musicians) make musical ports of call to Spanish and Portuguese cities throughout Europe and the America and bring a bouquet of influences onboard. Thus flamenco gracefully mixes with son, fado with bolero, café music of the city with traditional music of the provinces. Martirio navigates these shifting waters with grace, using her husky voice and Rodriguez's guitar work as the unifying force within the music. Highlights include the clever jazzy styling on "Alma Mia," the stripped-down and plaintive closer "Las Simples Cosas," and the fiery flamenco "Si Me Pudieras Querer." While the field of well-turned-out torch singers is a crowded one, here's a singer that deserves some time in the spotlight. - Tad Hendrickson

 $ 50 LIVE AT JAZZ ALLEY BY MONGO SANTAMARIA (CD)

This is as close to Latin purist Mongo as we have heard in recent years, an eight-piece salsa band -- including several members of the 1997 Tito Puente ensemble, like trumpeter Ray Vega, altoist Bobby Porcelli and tenorman Mitch Frohman -- playing a brace of Mongo classics and Latin jazz pieces live before a hushed crowd in Seattle's Jazz Alley. There are no pop covers, one electric instrument (a bass), lots of extended jazz solos (Porcelli and Frohman really burn on the pioneering Afro-Cuban classic "Manteca"), and an unusual (for Mongo) emphasis on the timbales on many tracks, which shoves the rhythms closer to the salsified Puente manner. However, tracks like "Juan Jose," "Home" and "Bonita" do have the smooth Mongo cha-cha and guajira grooves, and elsewhere, Mongo lifts himself out of the background often enough to deliver some stirring polyrhythmic conga salvos. For a specific jolt from Mongo's own past, there is "Para Ti" and 10 1/2 stimulating minutes of "Afro Blue." Though the general electricity level of the gig could be higher, Mongo's ageless spirit triumphs again.

 $ 50 SENZO BY ABDULLAH IBRAHIM (CD)

The incredible artistry and life of the South African septuagenarian pianist/composer Abdullah Ibrahim reads like a Hollywood movie: Born in Apartheid, growing up listening to church hymns, indigenous music and American jazz, he becomes one of his country s most accomplished musicians, and most famous, when Duke Ellington discovers and records him on his Reprise label in the sixties. He then lives in exile from his embattled homeland, redefines the parameters of jazz piano, before returning to a free South Africa after the fall of Apartheid as an esteemed world artist. Ibrahim s magnificent life story unfolds in full aural splendor on this Sunnyside release, Senzo, a riveting and reverent twenty-two track solo piano studio recording that ranks among the all-time jazz piano masterpieces, including Thelonious Monk s Alone in San Francisco, and Bill Evans Alone. A practitioner of Japanese martial arts for four decades, Ibrahim has chosen Senzo as the CD s title (it means "ancestor" in Japanese and Chinese, and is the also Ibrahim s father's name). Ibrahim s otherworldly, pensive, yet propulsive pianism moves as it meditates; and grooves as it soothes, drawing from native African sonic syncopation and sources, as well as African-American religious themes, and of course, Ellington and Monk. The nearly two-dozen tracks are an incredible potpourri of standards and original compositions that sing and swing in a number of tones and tempos: Banyana, Children of Africa, is a zesty dance, while Third Line Samba, a ditty inspired by the New Orleans street parades, reflects the experiences of the African Diaspora, contrasted by For Coltrane, a heartfelt tribute to the saxophone giant on par with Ibrahim s very personal take on Ellington s In A Sentimental Mood, and Ocean & The River open and close the CD and display Ibrahim s hypnotic sonic storytelling. With enough stories to cover several lifetimes, told through eighty-eight keys, Abdullah Ibrahim's Senzo reveals that his... uninhibited, intimate relationship with sound combines the sage wisdom of an ancient shaman with the insatiable curiosity of a little boy ... [the pianist] not only catches up with his ancestors, the widely traveled nomad also finds himself.

 $ 60 ACROSS 110TH STREET BY SPANISH HARLEM (CD)

Spanish Harlem Orchestra has only been performing together since the year 2000, but this baker's dozen of musicians and vocalists swings as if it's been around for decades. That cohesiveness is at full-throttle on Across 110th St, SHO's second release and the follow-up to 2002's Grammy nominated Un Gran Dia en el Barrio. The group mixes classic salsa covers ("Cuando Te Vea, Esperame en el Cielo") with original compositions, and it makes for an unbroken flow of precise musicianship and sweltering instrumental interludes. The legendary Ruben Blades tackles singing duties on four tracks, which gives Across 110th St much of its commercial heft. Equally commendable, though, are the vocal stylings of regular SHO members Ray De La Paz, Marco Bermudez and Willie Torres. Everyone gets a chance to shine on Across 110th St--a very good thing for fans of great salsa music. - Joey Guerra

 $ 60 BLUE TRAIN BY JOHN COLTRANE (CD)

Although never formally signed, an oral agreement between John Coltrane and Blue Note Records founder Alfred Lion was indeed honored on Blue Train -- Coltrane's only collection of sides as a principal artist for the venerable label. The disc is packed solid with sonic evidence of Coltrane's innate leadership abilities. He not only addresses the tunes at hand, but also simultaneously reinvents himself as a multifaceted interpreter of both hard bop as well as sensitive balladry -- touching upon all forms in between. The personnel on Blue Train is arguably as impressive as what they're playing. Joining Coltrane (tenor sax) are Lee Morgan (trumpet), Curtis Fuller (trombone), Kenny Drew (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums). The triple horn arrangements incorporate an additional sonic density that remains a trademark unique to both this band and album. Of particular note is Fuller's even-toned trombone, which bops throughout the title track as well as the frenetic "Moments Notice." Other solos include Paul Chambers' subtly understated riffs on "Blue Train" as well as the high energy and impact from contributions by Lee Morgan and Kenny Drew during "Locomotion." The track likewise features some brief but vital contributions from Philly Joe Jones -- whose efforts throughout the record stand among his personal best. Of the five sides that comprise the original Blue Train, the Jerome Kern/Johnny Mercer ballad "I'm Old Fashioned" is the only standard; in terms of unadulterated sentiment, this version is arguably untouchable. Fuller's rich tones and Drew's tastefully executed solos cleanly wrap around Jones' steadily languid rhythms. Without reservation, Blue Train can easily be considered in and among the most important and influential entries not only of John Coltrane's career, but of the entire genre of jazz music as well.

 $ 60 BLUES AT SUNRISE BY ALBERT KING (CD)

Any Albert King (or Stevie Ray Vaughan) fan should get this album. It's much better than "Live Wire Blues Power" or any of his other live albums. Albert has a kickin' band, complete with a small brass section, & with Donald Kinsey (later with The Wailers) on second guitar. More to the point, Albert turns his amp UP & gets a fat, warm distorted tone on his solos. Not typical for Albert, admittedly, but he sounds great. Just listen to his solo on "I Believe To My Soul" - awesome stuff. - Bystratman323

 $ 60 EAST WEST BY THE PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND (CD)

If the Butterfield Blues Band's groundbreaking debut earned the respect of the group's elder influences, this one won over (and guided) the blues boys' psychedelic peers. Highlighted by the 13-minute-plus title track (an Eastern-influenced jam cowritten by guitarist Mike Bloomfield), East-West stretches the boundaries of the blues. It would prod many lesser groups to explore, with generally dreary results, interminable free-flight explorations. But while East-West and a cover of jazzman Cannonball Adderly"s "Work Song" ventured in new directions, Paul Butterfield and company remained rooted in solid Chicago blues. East West presents the best of both worlds. - Steve Stolder

This 1970 studio effort teamed up Albert with producer Don Nix, who supplied the majority of the original material here. Kicking off with a typical reading of the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" and including Taj Mahal's "She Caught the Katy and Left Me a Mule to Ride," the session is split between a Hollywood date with Jesse Ed Davis, Jim Keltner, and Duck Dunn in the band and one at Muscle Shoals with Roger Hawkins, David Hood, and Barry Beckett in the lineup. Although all of this is well-produced, there's hardly any fireworks out of Albert or any of the players aboard, making this an unessential addition for any but Albert King completists.

 $ 60 MADE IN HABANA BY ISAAC DELGADO (CD)

On his latest release recorded in Cuba after ten years of being away, "El Chevere de la Salsa," demonstrates that he is perhaps the only artist who can move with ease from Salsa to Timba without blinking. The classic peruvian tune "Toro Mata" gets a hard Salsa arrangement, while "La mujer de mi vida" and "Tengo miedo" with ex Grupo Niche singer Willie Garcia are pure salsa romántica without sounding 'monga.' On the Timba side, the first single "Caminando" with Sur Caribe is a Timba polyrhythm extravaganza. For some Timba pop with excellent lyrics, Issac enlists superstar Déscemer Bueno on "La vida es buena" and singer songwriter Omi Hernández on "Removiendo el piso" (Omi recorded this song as a pop rock tune a few years ago). But just in case you thought Mr. Delgado was getting soft, he delivers a three punch combination: "Esto es timba cubana," "El comentario" with Alexander Abreu (the song deals with the rumors in Cuba that Issac Delgado has no more street) and "Va a caer" with Los Van Van are some of the best hard hitting songs he has recorded in his 30 plus year career. Issac said he returned to Cuba because there was something missing. His homeland provides him with inspiration, street, guaperia and blackness. Welcome home!

 $ 60 MEDICINE SHOW: 50 YEARS OF BLONDE ON BLONDE BY OLD CROW (CD)

The 14-track album, 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, was recorded LIVE at the CMA Theater located inside the historic Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum located in Nashville, TN in May 2016. Mixed by GRAMMY Award-winning Ted Hutt and Ryan Mall. "Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee. Time rolls on slowly around here like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats," says Ketch Secor, the primary vocalist of the Old Crow Medicine Show. "By deciding to record his newly found rock n' roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of Country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak its banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger."

Morgan, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, guitarist Grant Green, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Reggie Workman, and drummer Billy Higgins are all in particularly creative form on the fresh material, and they stretch the boundaries of hard bop (the modern mainstream jazz of the period). The result is a consistently stimulating set that rewards repeated listenings.

Lee Morgan was the leading trumpeter in hard bop during the 1960s and he recorded quite a few classic albums for Blue Note. This is one of them. The CD reissue (which adds an alternate take of the title cut to the original five-song program) features Morgan at his best, whether playing his memorable blues "Speed Ball," an explorative ballad version of "You Go to My Head," a lengthy "The Gigolo," or his other two originals ("Yes I Can, No You Can't" and "Trapped"). There are no weak selections on this set and the playing by the leader, Wayne Shorter on tenor, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Billy Higgins is beyond any serious criticism.

Hip-O's Ultimate Collection is one of the first truly comprehensive overviews of Freddie King's career, starting with his seminal recordings for Federal and running all the way to his final recordings for RSO in the mid-'70s. This is a mixed blessing. On one hand, it's nice to have a disc that tells the whole story, but the shifting production values and performance aesthetics make for slightly uneven listening. Throughout it all, though, King's playing shines and it's clear that even if his material and approach wavered toward the '70s, there was plenty to enjoy within his musicianship. Nevertheless, this is a place to go when you want to dig a little deeper, when you want a map of his entire career; if you want to delve in, head toward Rhino's collection of his Federal/King sides.

 $ 75 A LONG WAY TO THE BEGINNING BY SEUN KUTI (CD)

There isn't a lot of subtlety in the songs on Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's fiercely political third album, A Long Way to the Beginning. That's fine, because to his way of thinking, there isn't anything subtle about neo-liberal capitalism's global attack on the poor, either. Seun is Fela Kuti's youngest son. The vocalist and alto saxophonist has been fronting and leading Egypt 80 since his father's death in 1997 (three-quarters of that band remain) and has issued two previous records; the last, From Africa with Fury: Rise, in 2011, was co-produced by Brian Eno and John Reynolds. In the 21st century, there are literally hundreds of bands throughout the globe playing Afrobeat, with most adding a unique spin to the tradition; Kuti respects that. At seven tracks and 43 minutes, this set is tighter, shorter, and punchier than Fela's or Seun's earlier records, and takes into consideration a new palette of sounds. He enlisted Robert Glasper as co-producer (who also plays keyboards throughout), as well as help from rappers M-1 and Blitz the Ambassador. While Fela brought a certain narrative, hypnotic elegance to his music, Seun has replaced it -- at least here -- with the raw aggression of hip-hop and punk. Opener "I.M.F." is a stomping, jittery, crunching, fat, horn-driven anthem, with funky basslines, choppy guitars, and drums. M-1 delivers a rap that underscores Kuti's Pan-African lyrics with a global street perspective. Glasper's spacy keyboards add just a hint of air to the dense mix. His trancey keyboard atmospherics -- and funky clavinet -- can be heard on the hypno-groove in "Higher Consciousness," with a fine staccato horn chart and tightly woven lead and chorus vocals. "Ohun Riye" is a break from the rage. It's a skittering, Yoruban highlife jam with lyrics that celebrate life's spiritual qualities. Blitz the Ambassador helps out on "African Smoke," with hip-hop rhymes woven into the jazzier side of Afrobeat. The militant message delivered by Kuti is underscored line by line by his female chorus. There's also a fine trumpet solo by Oladimeji Akinyele. Closer "Black Woman" is the set's big surprise. A drifty, jazzy, nocturnal groover with killer lead guitar from David Obanyedo, it features sweet guest vocals from Nneka. Along with Glasper's signature keyboards, it has a winding, breezy horn chart atop multiple layers of drums and guitars. It's a feminist anthem that pays homage to the strength, commitment, courage, and struggle black women experience in everyday life. A Long Way to the Beginning is the most ambitious and angry record in Kuti's catalog. Its Afrobeat attack is hyper aggressive. It hammers the anger home in most tunes, and that's exactly what he feels young people around the world are projecting. He's telling them they're not only heard, but that he feels it too.

ODDARA is the sophomore release from four time JUNO Award winner, two time GRAMMY Award nominee and Officer of the Order of Canada, soprano saxophonist/flautist Jane Bunnett and Maqueque. Jane Bunnett s latest project is an assembly of all star Cuban musicians, an ensemble which includes herself and five extraordinary young females known as Maqueque (the energy of a young girl's spirit). Brought together and mentored by Bunnett, Maqueque includes Yissy Garcia on drums, Danae Olano on piano, Melvis Santa on percussion and vocals, Celia Jiménez on bass and Magdelys Savigne on bata drums and congas. Maqueque's forthcoming release reveals the next level of their artistry. This new project is even more instrumentally oriented than their acclaimed debut, and while Bunnett s flute and soprano saxophone are the main voices, all the members make strong and vital contributions as both players and composers. Group vocals are closely integrated into the performances, and the addition of violin lends new depth to this already rich ensemble. This truly is a collective, cooperative, coherent musical unit. Everything I ve done, Bunnett says with pride, has led up to this group, which is the perfect vehicle for now.

For decades, Bob Dylan's performance in Manchester was incorrectly labeled, The Royal Albert Hall Concert. Now, for the first time, the REAL Royal Albert Hall concert, originally recorded for a live album by CBS Records, is finally being released as a standalone 2-CD set, titled The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert. This show is also included in the 1966 Live Recordings box set. Dylan is accompanied on these recordings by Robbie Robertson (guitar), Rick Danko (bass, backing vocals), Richard Manuel (piano), Garth Hudson (organ) and Mickey Jones (drums).

 $ 80 PETE REMEMBERS WOODY (2-CD SET) (CD)

It s no overstatement to say that American music and America itself would be very different without the lasting influence of the late singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie (1912 1967). He was the prototype of the 20th Century rambling minstrel, turning his travels and observations into a huge body of topical and timeless music songs that contrasted our country s natural glories and sociopolitical shames, pro-labor songs, both anti- and pro-war songs, kids songs, patriotic and left-wing songs, music for everyday people to think about as they sing. When the 21-year-old Pete Seeger first met Guthrie, six years his senior, backstage at a benefit concert in 1940, he was enthralled by Guthrie's music, lyrical vision, and charisma. The two men started traveling and performing together, which was, in Pete s words, his own big, big education in learning about America. On the new 2-CD Pete Remembers Woody, Pete recounts his vivid firsthand reminiscences, wide-ranging and frequently humorous, of Woody's adult life Guthrie s transmutation of his experiences and omnivorous readings into popular although often controversial songs, his tips on freight-hopping and saloon singing, encounters with musical contemporaries Leadbelly and others, and many of the life lessons Pete has subsequently used in his own career, still ongoing in this Centennial year of Guthrie s birth. Interspersed with Pete s recollections of Woody are versions of some of Guthrie s most famous songs performed by idealistic links in the topical music chain like Arlo Guthrie (dueting with Pete on one of the few Woody-Seeger co-writes, 66 Highway Blues), the Work o the Weavers (This Land is Your Land, So Long, It s Been Good to Know Yuh!), CD producer David Bernz, whose own three-part Woody's Ghost serves to bookend and provide an intermission between the two CDs, and Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, who added music to Woody's lyrics for Howdy Little Newlycome. The Vanaver Caravan, the 40-year-old troupe of musicians and dancers, performs the Depression plaint Do Re Mi, Union Maid, Pastures of Plenty and Peace Pin Boogie, while members of Hope Machine tackle I Ain't Got No Home and I've Got to Know. Woody himself, with another of his running buddies, Cisco Houston, is heard on a 1940s recording of New York Town. Fink s banjo-playing on various traditional tunes helps tie together the masterful sequencing of spoken stories and related songs. That two men Guthrie and Seeger with a passion to carry on and expand music s potential for social change among the less fortunate, as well as for entertainment should overlap, interact and inspire fellow and future musicians and listeners was a timely miracle. Listen to how it happened and how it lives on on this lively spoken and sung musical document.

 $ 80 SOWING THE SEEDS - THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY (2-CD SET) (CD)

From small seeds, the 10-year-old label has harvested an abundant orchard of folk music, as this anniversary anthology attests. With Pete Seeger providing the spoken-word invocation and benediction that frame the two-disc set, while serving as the collection's patron saint throughout, it mixes highlights from the Appleseed catalog with new tracks featuring fellow travelers Bruce Springsteen (in duet with Seeger on "Ghost of Tom Joad" and Ani DiFranco (on Seeger's "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy"). The music not only revives folk tradition but renews it, as the pairing of Eric Andersen with Lou Reed on "You Can't Relive the Past" sounds recognizably like the work of both. The compilers pay as much attention to sequencing as to selection of material, with the first disc more often demanding justice, while the second one offers hope. With a roster that now includes veterans such as Donovan and Tom Paxton as well as relative newcomers like the Kennedys and Lizzie West, the anthology traces the legacy of folk tradition while offering indications of where the music's going. Here's wishing for many happy returns (and future anthologies). - Don McLeese

 $ 80 TESTIMONY BY HOWARD JOHNSON & GRAVITY (CD)

Howard Johnson really should need no introduction. He's played with many of the greats including Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Hank Crawford, Jack DeJohnette and Gil Evans (his solo on "Voodoo Child" was a highlight of Evans's Jimi Hendrix tribute album). He also appeared on Carla Bley's seminal 1971 album Escalator Over The Hill. Throughout his career, Johnson has been a trailblazer in the acceptance of the tuba in modern jazz, not merely as an oompah substitute for the bass but as a proper soloing instrument in its own right. Johnson has assembled a veritable clutch (if that's the appropriate collective noun) of tuba players including another tuba pioneer, the renowned Bob Stewart. The album is a belated follow-up to Johnson's Gravity and Right Now! from 1995 and 1998 respectively, which included several of the same tuba players featured here.

 $ 90 AMERICAN EPIC: THE SOUNDTRACK (CD)

AMERICAN EPIC, a film series produced by Allison McGourty, Duke Erikson and Director Bernard MacMahon, explores the pivotal recording journeys at the height of the Roaring Twenties, when music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology captured the breadth of American music and discovered the artists that would shape our world. The recordings they made of all the ethnic groups of America democratized the nation and gave a voice to everyone. Country singers in the Appalachians, Blues guitarists in the Mississippi Delta, Gospel preachers across the south, Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Tejano groups from the Texas Mexico border, Native American drummers in Arizona, and Hawaiian musicians were all recorded. It was the first time America heard itself. American Epic: The Soundtrack highlights 15 recordings from the three-part documentary on 1 CD, including original recordings by The Carter Family, Mississippi John Hurt, Charley Patton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and more all restored to unprecedented levels of sonic fidelity. For this release, engineer Nicholas Bergh refined a transfer process using a mix of both modern and vintage equipment in order to extract the remarkable resolution from the records that is often missed. This reverse engineering approach to the transfer process enabled the restoration team of Grammy Award-winning engineer Peter Henderson, Duke Erikson and Joel Tefteller to get the resulting audio closer to the original performance than ever before. This is not "remastering," in the normal sense, but something closer to fine art restoration. The intent is not for people to marvel at the antiquity of these discs, but rather to experience them as vital, immediate performances that speak to us as directly as they did on the day they were recorded not simply great art for their time, but great art for all times.

Her signature lyricism lives on in the ballad Grey River and this project brings new attitudes and expressions through both R&B and traditional jazz. She proves once again that the classical concert harp can inspire the listener in the context of jazz.

 $ 90 THE MUDDY WATERS WOODSTOCK ALBUM (CD)

When The Band's drummer Levon Helm set up a Woodstock-based recording studio and production company in 1975, his first client was the legendary bluesman Muddy Waters. Surrounding him with familiar sidemen Pinetop Perkins and Bob Margolin, plus such simpatico rock and blues stalwarts as The Band's Garth Hudson on accordion and organ, Paul Butterfield on harp, and Howard Johnson on saxophone, the 60-year-old Waters responded with the smoothest and most supple singing of his career. These two sessions are as delightful as any in his long association with Chess Records, and they signify his last album with that label. Among this Grammy Award-winning work's highlights are Muddy's original composition "Born with Nothing," featuring his stinging signature slide; his joyful R&B covers of "Let the Good Times Roll," Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City," and Louis Jordan's "Caledonia," this last graced by a looping Hudson accordion solo; and the previously unreleased bonus track, "Fox Squirrel." - Alan Greenberg

 $ 90 TRAIL (2 CD-SET) BY JIMMY LAFAVE (CD)

Containing 31 previously unreleased tracks, this two-CD set highlights the past two decades of LaFave's growth both as a songwriter and as a prime interpreter of Dylan material. Here he tackles no less than a dozen of Dylan's classics, ranging from the opening "Positively 4th Street" to "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" to the quiet stillness of "If Not for You." Equally as satisfying are LaFave's own originals, with "Red Dirt Roads at Night," "Burden to Bear," "How It Must Remain," "Ellie's Song," "Loved You Like Rainbows" and "The Open Road" all being particularly compelling statements. The sound, taken from live performances and radio broadcasts from Texas and around the world, is rough and right, giving this an official bootleg kind of feel that fits the music nicely.

 $ 100 THE BOOTLEG SERIES, VOL 5: BOB DYLAN LIVE 1975 (2-CD) BY BOB DYLAN (CD)

One of the many oddities of Bob Dylan's long and unruly career has been the rather cursory recording treatment given his stint as ringleader of the Rolling Thunder Revue. It's a shortcoming that's rectified with the release of Live 1975. Prior to the appearance of this two-disc collection, Rolling Thunder's eclectic road show was chronicled only in the infrequently screened, Dylan-directed Renaldo & Clara film and the bafflingly brief and one-note 1976 live set, Hard Rain. In contrast to its predecessor, this set, culled from four appearances made in November and December of '75, captures the breadth and subtleties of Dylan's Rolling Thunder performances. "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here with You," formerly a coda from Nashville Skyline, is given a rather incongruous bite here, while "It Ain't Me, Babe" is colored brightly by multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield along with erstwhile David Bowie guitarist Mick Ronson, the sparkplug of the gratifyingly ragtag group that coalesced on short notice. Solo acoustic performances weave through caterwauling full-band treatments of songs old ("The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll") and new ("Hurricane" and four other selections from Desire, which wouldn't hit the racks until early '76). While the contributions of a number of caravan cohorts and guests are left out, Joan Baez shares the spotlight with Dylan on four numbers, most notably on the rarity

Taking as its center piece Korngolds melodious Violin Concerto a work in which the emigre Austrian composer used themes from some of his most famous movie scores The Silver Violin celebrates the film music of composers from both East and West. This unique collection includes the poignant lament from John Williams Oscar-winning score for Schindlers List, the achingly beautiful My Edward and I from Dario Marianellis 2011 music for Jane Eyre, and extracts from Howard Shores Golden Globe-nominated score for Eastern Promises, which Nicola herself performed on the original soundtrack. Dmitri Shostakovich stakes a claim as the Soviet Union s greatest film composer with his much-loved Romance from The Gadfly, as well as the lyrical Andante from The Counterplan. Contemporary UK cinema is represented by the haunting main theme and specially-composed Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra from the 2004 hit Ladies in Lavender.

"Nader's assessment of how concentrated wealth and power undermine democracy is clear and compelling, but it's his substantive vision of how we ought to respond that makes Breaking Through Power essential reading. Written just before Donald Trump's Electoral College victory, Nader's latest book reads with even greater urgency now." - Yes Magazine. In Breaking Through Power, Ralph Nader draws from a lifetime waging--and often winning--David vs. Goliath battles against big corporations and the United States government. In this succinct, Tom Paine-style wake-up call, the iconic consumer advocate highlights the success stories of fellow Americans who organize change and work together to derail the many ways in which wealth manipulates politics, labor, media, the environment, and the quality of national life today. Nader makes an inspired case about how the nation can--and must--be democratically managed by communities guided by the United States Constitution, not by the dictates of big businesses and the wealthy few. This is classic Ralph Nader, a crystallization of the core political beliefs and commitments that have driven his lifetime of advocacy for greater democracy. "Ralph Nader is the grand progressive of our time. We overlook his words at our own peril! This book is required reading." - Cornel West

 $ 75 THE ABCS OF SOCIALISM (Book)

Slim, accessible, inexpensive, irreverent introduction to socialism by the writers of Jacobin magazine. The remarkable run of self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" Bernie Sanders for president of the United States has prompted-for the first time in decades and to the shock of many-a national conversation about socialism. A New York Times poll in late November found that a majority of Democrats had a favorable view of socialism, and in New Hampshire in February, more than half of Democratic voters under 35 told the Boston Globe they call themselves socialists. It's unclear exactly what socialism means to this generation, but couple with the ascendancy of longtime leftwinger Jeremy Corbyn to the leadership of the Labour Party in the UK, it's clear there's a historic, generational shift underway. This book steps into this moment to offer a clear, accessible, informative, and irreverent guide to socialism for the uninitiated. Written by young writers from the dynamic magazine Jacobin, alongside several distinguished scholars, The ABCs of Socialism answers basic questions, including ones that many want to know but might be afraid to ask ("Doesn't socialism always end up in dictatorship?," "Will socialists take my Kenny Loggins records?"). Disarming and pitched to a general readership without sacrificing intellectual depth, this will be the best introduction an idea whose time seems to have come again.

Ten years after writing the definitive, international bestselling book on political debate and messaging, George Lakoff returns with new strategies about how to frame today's essential issues. Called the "father of framing" by The New York Times, Lakoff explains how framing is about ideas-ideas that come before policy, ideas that make sense of facts, ideas that are proactive not reactive, positive not negative, ideas that need to be communicated out loud every day in public. The ALL NEW Don't Think of an Elephant! picks up where the original book left off-delving deeper into how framing works, how framing has evolved in the past decade, how to speak to people who harbor elements of both progressive and conservative worldviews, how to counter propaganda and slogans, and more. In this updated and expanded edition, Lakoff, urges progressives to go beyond the typical laundry list of facts, policies, and programs and present a clear moral vision to the country-one that is traditionally American and can become a guidepost for developing compassionate, effective policy that upholds citizens' well-being and freedom.

 $ 85 NO IS NOT ENOUGH: RESISTING TRUMP SHOCK POLITICS AND WINNING THE WORLD (Book)

The election of Donald Trump is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. Trump's vision-a radical deregulation of the US economy in the interest of corporations, an all-out war on "radical Islamic terrorism," and sweeping aside climate science to unleash a domestic fossil fuel frenzy-will generate wave after wave of crises and shocks: to the economy, to national security, and to the environment. In No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein explains that Trump, extreme as he is, is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half-century. In exposing the malignant forces behind Trump's rise, she puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter rising militarism, nationalism, and corporatism in the United States and around the world. From the Preface: This book is a toolkit to help understand how we arrived at this surreal political moment, how to keep it from getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can flip the script and seize the opportunity to make things a whole lot better in a time of urgent need. A toolkit for shock-resistance. Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and author of the international bestsellers No Logo, The Shock Doctrine, and most recently This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.

 $ 85 POLISHING THE MIRROR (PAPERBACK) BY RAM DASS (Book)

Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a heart-wrenching moment of opening. More commonly, it happens when we polish the mirror of the heart with daily practice-and see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature. For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love and brought them to life as service to others. With Polishing the Mirror, he gathers together his essential teachings for living in the eternal present, here and now. Readers will find within these pages a rich combination of perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and detailed guidance on Ram Dass' own spiritual practices, including: * Bhakti Yoga-opening our hearts to unconditional love. * Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life. * Karma Yoga-how selfless service can profoundly transform us. * Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom. * Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation and mantra practice, and much more. For those new to Ram Dass' teachings, and for those to whom they are old friends, here is this vanguard spiritual explorer's complete guide to discovering who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love.

 $ 85 UNDER THE AFFLUENCE: SHAMING THE POOR, PRAISING THE RICH BY TIM WISE (Book)

"Tim Wise is one of the great public moralists in America today. In his bracing new book, Under the Affluence, he brilliantly engages the roots and ramifications of radical inequality in our nation, carefully detailing the heartless war against the poor and the swooning addiction to the rich that exposes the moral sickness at the heart of our culture. Wise's stirring analysis of our predicament is more than a disinterested social scientific treatise; this book is a valiant call to arms against the vicious practices that undermine the best of the American ideals we claim to cherish. Under the Affluence is vintage Tim Wise: smart, sophisticated, conscientious, and righteously indignant at the betrayal of millions of citizens upon whose backs the American Dream rests. This searing testimony for the most vulnerable in our nation is also a courageous cry for justice that we must all heed." - Michael Eric Dyson, author of The Black Presidency: Barack Obama and the Politics of Race in America. Tim Wise is one of America's most prolific public intellectuals. His critically acclaimed books, high-profile media interviews, and year-round speaking schedule have established him as an invaluable voice in any discussion on issues of race and multicultural democracy. In Under the Affluence, Wise discusses a related issue: economic inequality and the demonization of those in need. He reminds us that there was a time when the hardship of fellow Americans stirred feelings of sympathy, solidarity for struggling families, and support for policies and programs meant to alleviate poverty. Today, however, mainstream discourse blames people with low income for their own situation, and the notion of an intractable "culture of poverty" has pushed our country in an especially ugly direction. Tim Wise argues that far from any culture of poverty, it is the culture of predatory affluence that deserves the blame for America's simmering economic and social crises. He documents the increasing contempt for the nation's poor, and reveals the forces at work to create and perpetuate it. With clarity, passion and eloquence, he demonstrates how America's myth of personal entitlement based on merit is inextricably linked to pernicious racial bigotry, and he points the way to greater compassion, fairness, and economic justice. Tim Wise is the author of many books, including Dear White America and Colorblind.

 $ 90 23 THINGS THEY DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT CAPITALISM BY HA-JOON CHANG (Book)

The acclaimed Ha-Joon Chang is a voice of sanity-and wit-in this lighthearted book with a serious purpose: to question the assumptions behind the dogma and sheer hype that the dominant school of neoliberal economists have spun since the Age of Reagan. 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism uses twenty-three short essays (a few great examples: "There Is No Such Thing as a Free Market," "The Washing Machine Has Changed the World More than the Internet Has") to equip readers with an understanding of how global capitalism works, and doesn't, while offering a vision of how we can shape capitalism to humane ends, instead of becoming slaves of the market. Praise for 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism: "A lively, accessible and provocative book."-Sunday Times (UK ) "Chang, befitting his position as an economics professor at Cambridge University, is engagingly thoughtful and opinionated at a much lower decibel level. 'The "truths" peddled by free-market ideologues are based on lazy assumptions and blinkered visions,' he charges.'-Time

 $ 90 BILL OF WRONGS (PAPERBACK) BY MOLLY IVINS & LOU DUBOSE (Book)

In this, her final and perhaps greatest book, Molly Ivins launches a counterattack on the executive branch's shredding of our cherished Bill of Rights. From illegal wiretaps and the unlawful imprisonment of American citizens to the creeping influence of religious extremism on our national agenda and the erosion of the checks and balances that prevent a president from seizing unitary powers, Ivins and her longtime collaborator, Lou Dubose, describe the attacks on America's vital constitutional guarantees. With devastating humor and keen eyes for deceit and hypocrisy, they show how severe these incursions have become, and they ask us all to take an active role in protecting the Bill of Rights. Praise for Bill of Wrongs: "Should make anyone laugh, cheer and roar with rage." -New Orleans Times-Picayune "[Molly Ivins is] wonderfully direct about the costs of our lost civil liberties... Ivins' voice-in all its drawling, acerbic, storytelling, fearless glory-is stilled now... But her message lives on. And every thoughtful American ought to be listening." -The Buffalo News

 $ 90 DIRECT ACTION, PROTEST AND THE REINVENTION OF AMERICAN RADICALISM (Book)

A longtime movement insider's powerful account of the origins of today's protest movements and what they can achieve now. As Americans take to the streets in record numbers to resist the presidency of Donald Trump, L.A. Kauffman's timely, trenchant history of protest offers unique insights into how past movements have won victories in times of crisis and backlash and how they can be most effective today. This deeply researched account, twenty-five years in the making, traces the evolution of disruptive protest since the Sixties to tell a larger story about the reshaping of the American left. Kauffman, a longtime grassroots organizer, examines how movements from ACT UP to Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter have used disruptive tactics to catalyze change despite long odds. Kauffman's lively and elegant history is propelled by hundreds of candid interviews conducted over a span of decades. Direct Action showcases the voices of key players in an array of movements - environmentalist, anti-nuclear, anti-apartheid, feminist, LGBTQ, anti-globalization, racial-justice, anti-war, and more - across an era when American politics shifted to the right, and a constellation of decentralized issue- and identity-based movements supplanted the older ideal of a single, unified left. Now, as protest movements again take on a central and urgent political role, Kauffman's history offers both striking lessons for the current moment and an unparalleled overview of the landscape of recent activism. Written with nuance and humor, Direct Action is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the protest movements of our time.

 $ 90 THE ASSASSINATION COMPLEX BY JEREMY SCAHILL (Book)

Major revelations about the US government's drone program-bestselling author Jeremy Scahill and his colleagues at the investigative website The Intercept expose stunning new details about America's secret assassination policy. When the US government discusses drone strikes publicly, it offers assurances that such operations are a more precise alternative to troops on the ground and are authorized only when an "imminent" threat is present and there is "near certainty" that the intended target will be killed. The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama administration has been trust, but don't verify. The online magazine The Intercept exploded this secrecy when it obtained a cache of secret slides that provide a window into the inner workings of the US military's kill/capture operations in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia. Whether through the use of drones, night raids, or new platforms yet to be employed, these documents show assassination to be central to US counterterrorism policy. The classified documents reveal that Washington’s fourteen-year targeted killing campaign suffers from an overreliance on flawed signals intelligence, an apparently incalculable civilian toll, and an inability to extract potentially valuable intelligence from terror suspects. This campaign, carried out by two presidents through four presidential terms, has been deliberately obscured from the public and insulated from democratic debate. The Assassination Complex allows us to understand at last the circumstances under which the US government grants itself the right to sentence individuals to death without the established checks and balances of arrest, trial, and appeal. The book will include original contributions from Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden.

 $ 100 A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF THE WORLD BY CHRIS HARMON (Book)

A People's History of the World: From the Stone Age to the New Millennium. By Chris Harman. Chris Harman describes the shape and course of human history as a narrative of ordinary people forming and re-forming complex societies in pursuit of common human goals. Interacting with the forces of technological change as well as the impact of powerful individuals and revolutionary ideas, these societies have engendered events familiar to every schoolchild—from the empires of antiquity to the world wars of the twentieth century. In a bravura conclusion, Chris Harman exposes the reductive complacency of contemporary capitalism, and asks, in a world riven as never before by suffering and inequality, why we imagine that it can-or should-survive much longer. Ambitious, provocative and invigorating, A People's History of the World delivers a vital corrective to traditional history, as well as a powerful sense of the deep currents of humanity which surge beneath the froth of government.

 $ 100 INSANE CLOWN PRESIDENT BY MATT TAIBBI (Book)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Dispatches from the 2016 election that provide an eerily prescient take on our democracy’s uncertain future, by the country’s most perceptive and fearless political journalist. In twenty-five pieces from Rolling Stone-plus two original essays-Matt Taibbi tells the story of Western civilization's very own train wreck, from its tragicomic beginnings to its apocalyptic conclusion. Years before the clown car of candidates was fully loaded, Taibbi grasped the essential themes of the story: the power of spectacle over substance, or even truth; the absence of a shared reality; the nihilistic rebellion of the white working class; the death of the political establishment; and the emergence of a new, explicit form of white nationalism that would destroy what was left of the Kingian dream of a successful pluralistic society. Taibbi captures, with dead-on, real-time analysis, the failures of the right and the left, from the thwarted Bernie Sanders insurgency to the flawed and aimless Hillary Clinton campaign; the rise of the "dangerously bright" alt-right with its wall-loving identity politics and its rapturous view of the "Racial Holy War" to come; and the giant fail of a flailing, reactive political media that fed a ravenous news cycle not with reporting on political ideology, but with undigested propaganda served straight from the campaign bubble. At the center of it all stands Donald J. Trump, leading a historic revolt against his own party, “bloviating and farting his way” through the campaign, “saying outrageous things, acting like Hitler one minute and Andrew Dice Clay the next.” For Taibbi, the stunning rise of Trump marks the apotheosis of the new postfactual movement. Taibbi frames the reporting with original essays that explore the seismic shift in how we perceive our national institutions, the democratic process, and the future of the country. Insane Clown President is not just a postmortem on the collapse and failure of American democracy. It offers the riveting, surreal, unique, and essential experience of seeing the future in hindsight. Praise for Matt Taibbi “Matt Taibbi is one of the few journalists in America who speaks truth to power.”—Senator Bernie Sanders

 $ 100 NARCOLAND BY ANABEL HERNANDEZ (Book)

The product of five years' investigative reporting, the subject of intense national controversy, and the source of death threats that forced the National Human Rights Commission to assign two full-time bodyguards to its author, Anabel Hernandez, Narcoland has been a publishing and political sensation in Mexico. The definitive history of the drug cartels, Narcoland takes readers to the front lines of the "war on drugs," which has so far cost more than 60,000 lives in just six years. Hernandez explains in riveting detail how Mexico became a base for the mega-cartels of Latin America and one of the most violent places on the planet. At every turn, Hernández names names - not just the narcos, but also the politicians, functionaries, judges and entrepreneurs who have collaborated with them. In doing so, she reveals the mind-boggling depth of corruption in Mexico's government and business elite. Hernandez became a journalist after her father was kidnapped and killed and the police refused to investigate without a bribe. She gained national prominence in 2001 with her exposure of excess and misconduct at the presidential palace, and previous books have focused on criminality at the summit of power, under presidents Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon. In awarding Hernandez the 2012 Golden Pen of Freedom, the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers noted, "Mexico has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists, with violence and impunity remaining major challenges in terms of press freedom. In making this award, we recognize the strong stance Ms. Hernandez has taken, at great personal risk, against drug cartels."

CHANGING OUR MINDS is an experiential tour through the social, spiritual and scientific revolution that is redefining our relationship with mind-expanding substances. It tells the inspiring and very human stories of pioneering neuroscientists, psychotherapists, shamans and ordinary people seeking to live more aware and compassionate lives by combining the miracles of modern chemistry, therapeutic techniques and the wise use of ancient plant medicines. A new era of research into psychedelic-assisted therapy has begun. Party drugs like Ecstasy (MDMA) are used to help U.S. veterans struggling with the psychological aftermath of war. Psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, is employed as a medicine to help alcoholics get sober and cancer patients struggling with the existential distress of a life-threatening illness. Meanwhile, the use of the ayahuasca, a shamanic brew from the Amazon jungle, has grown into an international movement for those seeking greater spiritual and psychological insight. Changing Our Minds is the essential primer for understanding and navigating this new consciousness-raising territory.

 $ 120 THIS IS OUR FIGHT BY ELIZABETH WARREN (Book)

This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class. #1 New York Times bestseller. The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring book about why our middle class is under siege and how we can win the fight to save it Senator Elizabeth Warren has long been an outspoken champion of America's middle class, and by the time the people of Massachusetts elected her in 2012, she had become one of the country's leading progressive voices. Now, at a perilous moment for our nation, she has written a book that is at once an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action. Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she's never forgotten how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. An educational system that offered opportunities for all made it possible for her to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and, later, attending law school. But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities are gone, and a government that once looked out for working families is instead captive to the rich and powerful. Seventy-five years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity; in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan reversed course and sold the country on the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump--a con artist who promised to drain the swamp of special interests and then surrounded himself with billionaires and lobbyists--the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse. Written in the candid, high-spirited voice that is Warren's trademark, This Fight Is Our Fight tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate and vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people--she won't sit down, she won't be silenced, and she will fight back.

 $ 140 HILLBILLY ELEGY: A MEMOIR OF A FAMILY AND CULTURE IN CRISIS (Book)

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NAMED BY THE TIMES AS ONE OF "6 BOOKS TO HELP UNDERSTAND TRUMP'S WIN." "You will not read a more important book about America this year." - The Economist. "A riveting book." - The Wall Street Journal. "Essential reading." - David Brooks, New York Times. From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America''s white working class Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis-that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.'s grandparents were "dirt poor and in love," and moved north from Kentucky's Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version. Vance's grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother, struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demons of their chaotic family history. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

 $ 150 NO SHORTCUTS BY JANE MCALEVEY (Book)

The crisis of the progressive movement is so evident that nothing less than a fundamental rethinking of its basic assumptions is required. Today's progressives now work for professional organizations more comfortable with the inside game in Washington DC (and capitols throughout the West), where they are outmatched and outspent by corporate interests. Labor unions now focus on the narrowest possible understanding of the interests of their members, and membership continues to decline in lockstep with the narrowing of their goals. Meanwhile, promising movements like Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter lack sufficient power to accomplish meaningful change. Why do progressives in the United States keep losing on so many issues? In No Shortcuts, Jane McAlevey argues that progressives can win, but lack the organized power to enact significant change, to outlast their bosses in labor fights, and to hold elected leaders accountable. Drawing upon her experience as a scholar and longtime organizer in the student, environmental, and labor movements, McAlevey examines cases from labor unions and social movements to pinpoint the factors that helped them succeed - or fail - to accomplish their intended goals. McAlevey makes a compelling case that the great social movements of previous eras gained their power from mass organizing, a strategy today's progressives have mostly abandoned in favor of shallow mobilization or advocacy. She ultimately concludes that, in order to win, progressive movements need strong unions built from bottom-up organizing strategies that place the power for change in the hands of workers and ordinary people at the community level. Beyond the concrete examples in this book, McAlevey's arguments have direct implications for anyone involved in organizing for social change. Much more than cogent analysis, No Shortcuts explains exactly how progressives can go about rebuilding powerful movements at work, in our communities, and at the ballot box.

Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven’t thought about-yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting. Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In The Complete Guide to Fasting, he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.
