With a new introduction for the paperback. London is a supreme achievement of civilization. It offers fulfilments of body and soul, encourages discovery and invention. It is a place of freedom, multiplicity and co-existence. It is a Liberal city, which means it stands for values now in peril. London has also become its own worst enemy, testing to destruction the idea that the free market alone can build a city, a fantastical wealth machine that denies too many of its citizens a decent home or living. In this thought-provoking, fearless, funny and subversive book, Rowan Moore shows how London’s strength depends on the creative and mutual interplay of three forces: people, business and state. To find responses to the challenges of the twenty-first century, London must rediscover its genius for popular action and bold public intervention. The global city above all others, London is the best place to understand the way the world’s cities are changing. It could also be, in the shape of a living, churning city of more than eight million people, the most powerful counter-argument to the extremist politics of the present.

From the New York Times bestselling author of We All Looked Up comes the second novel in the Anchor & Sophia trilogy, where the rules of humanity are called into question by two warring cities. After their devastating journey from the Anchor to Sophia, Clive and Clover Hamill, Gemma Poplin, and Paz Dedios have all been separated—not only physically, but philosophically. In the Anchor, Clive would like nothing better than to never speak with Paz again, but when he is tapped to help with her interrogation, the two of them begin to reconcile their differences, which don’t run nearly as deep as they expected. In Sophia, as Clover learns more and more about the city and its enigmatic director, Zeno, his faith in his mission begins to waver. And Gemma embarks on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual expansion that will open her eyes…if it doesn't kill her first. In Slow Burn, the second book in the Anchor & Sophia trilogy, these four young people will be compelled to question everything they thought they believed—and the conclusions they reach could determine the fate of an entire civilization.

Boston PI Spenser faces a hot case and a personal crisis in the latest adventure in the iconic New York Times bestselling series from author Ace Atkins. The fire at a boarded-up Catholic church raged hot and fast, lighting up Boston's South End and killing three firefighters who were trapped in the inferno. A year later, as the city prepares to honour their sacrifice, there are still no answers about how the deadly fire started. Most at the department believe it was just a simple accident: faulty wiring in a century-old building. But Boston firefighter Jack McGee, who lost his best friend in the blaze, suspects arson. McGee is convinced department investigators aren't sufficiently connected to the city's lowlifes to get a handle on who's behind the blaze - so he takes the case to Spenser. Spenser quickly learns not only that McGee might be right but that the fire might be linked to a rash of new arsons spreading through the city. Spenser follows the trail of fires to Boston's underworld, bringing him; his trusted ally, Hawk; and his apprentice, Sixkill, toe-to-toe with a dangerous new enemy who doesn't play by the city's old rules. Spenser has to find the firebug before he kills again - and stay alive himself. 'Robert B Parker's Spenser is one of the best private detectives in fiction ' - Sunday Telegraph 'Spenser is as tough and funny as ever, and Atkins has become a worthy successor' - Booklist

Kath Weston's powerful collection of essays, Long, Slow Burn, challenges the preconception that queer studies is the brainchild of the humanities and argues that social science has been talking about sex all along. To deny this one would have to overlook Kinsey's pioneering sex research in the 1950s, or the psychiatrist Evelyn Hooker's pathbreaking study of homosexuality, but also in the "sex talk" that lies at the heart of classic debates on kinship, inequality, cognition, and other foundational topics in the social sciences. What is different now, Weston claims, is the way sexuality has been isolated from other contemporary issues. Not content with its ghettoization as a contained subfield, Weston refuses to draw an artificial line around sexuality.

For two veteran police officers and their small group of friends, the first day of the outbreak starts out like any other until they are confronted with a new and unexpected enemy. Each one of them is forced to confront the unthinkable. Zombies are real, and craving the living with an insatiable appetite. Against the full specter of a society crumbling around them, and the dead stalking the living in the streets, it will take all of their skill, knowledge and courage to survive. Yet, amongst it all, they still face enemies among the living as well. Armed gangs free to roam the streets. Powerful men who want to play politics with people’s lives, and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Together, the group faces an uncertain future as they struggle against relentless enemies, living and dead, in a devastated America. Matvei, the Russian mercenary, had been poised to carve out his own empire from the ashes of humanity. Horribly underestimating the enemy he now faced, the once leader of an army struggles to survive against the very creatures he helped create. For Mike and Stephen, the idea to use an abandoned prison as a modern day fortress was brilliant. Solid stone walls protected them and their growing group of survivors against the relentless advance of the undead howling for their blood, giving the people inside a sense of hope in these dark days. Utilizing the skills and knowledge of the people sheltered inside, they had turned the old prison into a working community. They had shelter, food, and weapons to combat the dead. What could go wrong? In a nearby conclave was Father Kettle. He was a man used to his position of authority as a man of God to get anything he desired. Now, along with a congregation of ruthless murderers, he desires everything the survivors hold dear. Father Kettle’s personal assassin, Jonas, had infiltrated the prison to undermine their cause. Joining their conspiracy, burning with the need for revenge is former Councilman Lewis. All the while, far to the north in the burning remnants of Chicago, the countless eyes of an undead host, filled with hunger and rage, looked to the south…

Taking the fire that destroyed the Fenice theatre in 1996 as his starting point, John Berendt creates a unique and unforgettable portrait of Venice and its extraordinary inhabitants. Beneath the exquisite facade of the world's most beautiful historic city, scandal, corruption and venality are rampant, and John Berendt is a master at seeking them out. Ezra Pound and his mistress, Olga; poet Mario Stefani; the Rat Man of Treviso; or Mario Moro - self-styled carabiniere, fireman, soldier or airman, depending on the day of the week. With his background in journalism, Berendt is perfectly poised to gain access to private and unapproachable people, and persuade them to talk frankly to him. The result is mischievous, witty, compelling - and destined to be the non-fiction succes d'estime of the year.

Almost two years have passed since Aaron Custer supposedly set a fire at a house in Columbus that killed three college students, including the young woman with whom he had argued just hours before. Prosecutors had an ironclad case against Custer, a convicted firebug whose fingerprints were found on the lighter that started the blaze and who quickly pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty. Private investigator and fallen Ohio State football star Andy Hayes is skeptical when Custer's grandmother asks him to reopen the investigation by finding a mysterious witness who may have seen the real culprit that night. Andy's doubts fade as he uncovers a tangle of motives for the victims' deaths, implicating the state's natural gas fracking boom, drug dealers, and more. But to delve deeper, Andy must once again make amends with his past. TV reporter Suzanne Gregory, a former fiancée, has more information on the Orton Avenue fire than any journalist in town, but asking for her help means reopening old wounds?—?just as Andy has embarked on a new relationship he's determined not to screw up. As Andy follows Custer's trail down ever-darker paths, he must revisit his past and decide whether he can afford to forfeit his future. Author and reviewer Bill Osinski called Fourth Down and Out, the first of the Andy Hayes mysteries, “A tall, frosty stein of Middle-American noir, backed with a healthy shot of wry.” In this second installment, Andrew Welsh-Huggins draws on real events and current affairs to bring his city to life?—?warts and all?.
