Nikita' (1990) is the story of a nineteen-year old junkie, Nikita (Anne Parillaud) who is given a second chance in life through being trained to be - and becoming - a skilled assassin for the State. 'Nikita' is a cult classic, directed by Luc Besson (with Thierry Arbogast as director of photography) in his hallmark powerful style. The film was an international hit, which spawned a TV series and a Hollywood remake. Susan Hayward develops here a fresh and provocative way of understanding 'Nikita''s plot structure as a neo-baroque symphony. She goes in depth into key sequences of the film, examines its reception as a popular film by audiences and critics, and looks at 'The Assassin', the Hollywood remake of 'Nikita'._x000D_ _x000D_ This is a wonderfully exciting book on an underrated film. It also shows that the woman placed at the centre of a film noir can', as Susan Hayward points out, 'for once win - or at least "get away with it".'_x000D_ _x000D_ 'Ginette Vincendeau has assembled an elite corps of film scholars to address a marvellous array of modern and classic French films with the close-up scrutiny they deserve.'_x000D_ - Dudley Andrew_x000D_

This is the third and last volume of the only complete and fully reliable English-language version of the memoirs of the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. In the first two volumes, published by Pennsylvania State University Press in 2005 and 2006, respectively, Khrushchev tells the story of his rise to power and his part in the fight against Hitler&’s invasion of the Soviet Union. He also discusses agriculture, the housing problem, and other issues of domestic policy, as well as defense and disarmament. This volume is devoted to international affairs. Khrushchev describes his dealings with foreign statesmen and his state visits to Britain, the United States, France, Scandinavia, India, Afghanistan, Burma, Egypt, and Indonesia. In the first part, Khrushchev talks about relations between the Soviet Union and the Western powers. Of particular interest is his perspective on the Berlin, U-2, and Cuban missile crises. The second part focuses on the Communist world&—above all, the deterioration of relations with China and the tensions in Eastern Europe, including relations with Tito&’s Yugoslavia, Gomulka&’s Poland, and the 1956 Soviet intervention in Hungary. In the third part, Khrushchev discusses the search for allies in the Third World. The Appendixes contain biographies, a bibliography, and a chronology, as well as the reminiscences of Khrushchev&’s chief bodyguard about the visit to the United Nations in 1960 at which the famous &“shoe-banging&” incident occurred&—or, perhaps, did not occur.

“We will bury you!” Actually, what he really said was, “You will bury yourselves from within.” Sound ridiculous? Maybe, maybe not. As we look around this Great Nation, we see we are witnesses to a terrible decline in morality, accountability, and statesmanship. What started this decline is speculative at best. Unfortunately, there are as many opinions as there are people. Nikita’s Plan takes a look at this dilemma by mixing some old facts with some current events. Throw these together into a serious, fast-paced, “Shoot ’em up, bang, bang” suspense novel, and you end up with this huge 2×4. It is my wish that this subliminal big stick is used to awaken the general public to the seriousness of our societal decline. It is our wish that every American read this book before they vote again.
