This book, beginning with an analysis of how changes in the global economy are affecting the lives of ordinary Americans, suggests that the postmodern condition can be likened to the balkanization of culture and society and the "Brazilianization" of politics and the economy.

This is the first book to look at the process of European integration by drawing on both established and new trends in postmodern thinking and analysis. The book asks how we can study the process of European integration in the current climate, and maps out the central elements of the academic debate dealing with the future of integration, and 'Europe' in general. The author stimulates fresh readings of the European issue, encouraging the development of new analytical horizons. This is a significant cutting-edge contribution to debates in politics, comparative politics and European studies.

Superlative depicts the expectations and uncertainties that are at the forefront of life at the end of the twentieth-century and into the contemporary moment. This impressive volume of verse utilises traditional ideologies and forms and yet, at the same time, it also establishes a unique, postmodern style that is cutting and opinionated - setting the poetry a league ahead of all other modern verse. There is a multitude of unparalleled themes that are confronted in this 100-plus collection of verse, alongside established forms and topics. The list, ranging from life to death and ambition to failure, is too varied and extensive to list in its entirety. Humour is a primary objective of the book and one that is recurrent; one fantastic example, The damage is already done, basks in its own self-glory and is truly postmodern in its awareness of its own aptitude and magnitude. Love poems are prevalent too within the collection, although this is not to say that all of the love poetry is traditional: The last ounce, Modern day love, and Oh don't get pissed again reject the style and content of the canonical love poem for something a little more postmodern. As well as a variation in themes, forms - both traditional and original - also vary to best depict or satirise the situation. For example, A child for the millennium uses free verse and elaborate language to parody its content (that is, the degenerate youth culture). The result is that, ironically, the uneducated youth is unable to comprehend the issues that are in fact so pertinent to their lives, as is the case in 'real' life also. This book is guaranteed to taunt you, haunt you, and leave you questioning your position in the contemporary situations that the author so ingeniously presents.

The Cinema of Wim Wenders, the first anthology of scholarly work on Wenders, is a unique anthropology of source materials and selected critical essays on the films of Wim Wenders, a major filmmaker in the so-called New German Cinema movement. His work, probably more than that of any other European director, reflects the tension between the European auteur tradition and the increasing dominance of the American media industry. In both his filmmaking and his critical writing, he explores how the relationship between image and narrative manifests the basic opposition between these two film traditions. This book serves as an introduction to the central concerns of his cinema while situation his work within German film history and the contemporary debates about postmodern film and media theory.
