In these seemingly anonymous productions, we discover three different ways of talking about the United States, and three separate nations within its borders.

From the author of "The History of Rock n Roll in Ten Songs" comes his Basement Tapes: the complete Real Life Rock Top 10 columns For nearly thirty years, Greil Marcus has written a remarkable column called Real Life Rock Top Ten. It has been a laboratory where he has fearlessly explored and wittily dissected an enormous variety of cultural artifacts, from songs to books to movies to advertisements. Taken together, his musings, reflections, and sallies amount to a subtle and implicit theory of how cultural objects fall through time and circumstance and often deliver unintended consequences, both in the present and in the future. "Real Life Rock" reveals the critic in full: direct, erudite, funny, fierce, vivid, uninhibited, and possessing an unerring instinct for art and fraud. The result is an indispensable volume packed with startling arguments and casual brilliance."

'Civil Society' has become a hot topic of debate in the last two decades, seen by many politicians and academics as a key to achieving democratic renewal. This new study offers one of the first transnational histories of civil society from the Enlightenment to the Great War, a period essential to understanding this debate. Using Alexis de Tocqueville's view on the exceptionalism of American democracy as his starting point, Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann argues that American society was less exceptional than Tocqueville suggests, given the enthusiasm for voluntary associations among practitioners of civil society in Britain, France, Germany the Habsburg Empire and Russia. Hoffmann shows the transference and adaptation of ideas and practices of civil society across national borders. By placing the tension between 'democracy' and 'civil society' at the centre of the book, Hoffmann's account reveals the dilemmas of civil society and provides a concise and incisive introduction to one of the key concepts in Global History.

Big Medicine from Six Nations is a series of reminiscences and essays by the late Ted Williams, on the themes of "Medicine" (physical/spiritual/psychic healing). Williams intertwines the lore and lifeways of his Tuscarora upbringing, illustrating the dynamic encounter of tradition and innovation at the heart of contemporary Haudenosaunee culture. At the same time, Williams writes with an irreverence, irony, and good humor unmistakably his own. Colored by Ted's wry and irreverent wit, Big Medicine from Six Nations amply fulfills the promise of its title. It offers a fascinating view, not only of herbal medicine, but of prayers, omens, feasts, vision quests, sweat lodges, spirits, humor, and the sacred teachings of the Great Law of the Great Peace. But readers will find that there is more to this book, about the "spiritual mechanics" of humankind writ large. Readers will discover herein a multiplicity of Big Medicine manifestations, and best of all they will get to know more about Ted Williams, Teller.
