As a powerful work of speculative fiction, it sheds a critical light on society. In 'Brave New World Revisited'(1958), Huxley uses his knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with the prophetic fantasy envisioned in his earlier utopic fiction, including threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, & chemical persuasion. 340p.

    With his unique fusion of erudition and wit, Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world. In this eloquent argument with the faithful, he makes the ultimate case against dogma (and for a more secular approach to life) through a close and learned reading of the major theological texts. Hitchens tells the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with religion and describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason. Christopher Hitchens passed away on December 15, 2011. References, Index. A National Book Award Finalist. 320p.

    An updated survey of the partition of Cyprus. In a compelling study of great-power misconduct, Christopher Hitchens examines the events leading up to the partition of Cyprus and its legacy. He argues that the intervention of four major foreign powers, Turkey, Greece, Britain and the United States, turned a local dispute into a major disaster. In a new afterword, Hitchens reviews the implications of the Republic of Cyprus's applications for European union membership, the escalating regional arms race between Greece and Turkey, and last year's Greek Cypriot protests along the partition border.

    Hailed as an American classic upon its publication in 1953, 'The Adventures of Augie March' holds the title of the Great American Novel - albeit with some worthy challengers nipping at Augie's heel.Nevertheless, this exuberant narrator-hero, a poor Chicago boy growing up during the Great Depression, makes himself available for a series of occupations, then proudly rejects each one as unworthy. His own oddity is reflected in the companions he encounters - plungers, schemers, risk-takers, and 'hole-and-corner' operators like the would-be tycoon Einhorn or the would-be siren Thea, who travels with an eagle trained to hunt small creatures & gather new readers!
  • The Parthenon Marbles: The Case for Reunification

    The Parthenon Marbles (formerly known as the Elgin Marbles), designed and executed by Pheidias to adorn the Parthenon, are perhaps the greatest of all classical sculptures. In 1801, Lord Elgin, then ambassador to the Turkish government, had chunks of the frieze sawn off and shipped to England, where they were subsequently seized by Parliament and sold to the British Museum to help pay off Elgin's debts.This scandal, exacerbated by the inept handling of the scultpures by their self-appointed guardians, remains unresolved to this day. In his fierce, eloquent account of a shameful piece of British imperial history, Christopher Hitchens makes the moral, artistic, legal and political case for re-unifying the Parthenon frieze in Athens.The opening of the New Acropolis Museum emphatically trumps the British Museum's long-standing (if always questionable) objection that there is nowehere in Athens to house the Parthenon Marbles. With contributions by Nadine Gordimer and Professor Charalambos Bouras, The Parthenon Marbles will surely enbd all arguments about where these great treasures belong, and help bring a two-centuries-old disgrace to a just conclusion.
