"Why would a decent sort like you want to live in this neighbourhood? You know this is the South End? Wrong side of the tracks."With these words, a Nanaimo taxi driver delivered Diane Foley to her new home in 1994. In pursuit of an enterprising beau with a handful of dubious South End rental properties, Diane truly "finds herself" in the life-changing new experience of running Big Sab, the transition house for men coming out of prison with addiction problems. And she finds these men, the lost boys of society, to be more intelligent, generous and talented than threatening or unhinged -- at least usually.Off the Tracks is a story about the human spirit willing to fight against enormous odds. It is about passion and ragged hope, self-destruction and unrequited love. Taking Diane's bold lead, we fall head over heels for a broken-down, close-knit community for an impossible "wanderlust" wolf dog, and for the social misfits at Big Sab. In doing so, we discover beauty off the tracks in the kindness and camaraderie of Nanaimo's South End. Delivered with Foley's welcoming perceptive and soulfully charming panache for storytelling, this book will make the reader laugh throughout but also weep when we least expect it, all the while making all of us -- on both sides of the tracks -- more human.

The horse racing industry has been a pioneer in interactive media, information networks, and their deployment. The race track and the off-track betting parlor offer interactive media environments that reconfigure the relationships among private and public space and presence and copresence. In this book, Holly Kruse explores how horse racing has used media over the last several decades, arguing that examining the history and context of horse racing and gambling gives us a clearer understanding of the development of data networks, media complexes, public entertainment, and media publics. Kruse describes an enormous industry that depends on global information and communication flows made possible by a network linking racetracks, homes, off-track betting, farms, and auction sites. Racetrack architecture now allows for the presence of screens, most showing races from other locations. Online betting sites enable bettors to wager from home. Off-track betting facilities collect wagers on races from all over the country. Odds are set interactively through the pari-mutuel market system. Kruse considers the uses of public space, and its redefinition by public screens; the effect of interactive media on the racing industry, including networked, in-home betting; the "technopanic" over online poker and the popularity of in-home pari-mutuel wagering; and the use of social media by racing fans to share information and creative work with no financial payoff.

A great deal, it turns out, both within the group with its skewed dynamics and between the group and "the locals" in this often hilarious clash of cultures"--

A vivid, first-hand account of Nobel Prize-winning singer and songwriter Bob Dylan as an artist, friend, and celebrity, illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, and told by an engaging raconteur who cut his own swathe through the turbulent counterculture. August 2014 marks 50 years since Bob Dylan released his fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan. Recorded in one night, in the middle of a turbulent year in his life, the music marked a departure from Dylan's socially-conscious folk songs and began his evolution toward other directions. During the years they spent together, few people outside of Dylan's immediate family were closer than Victor Maymudes, who was Dylan's tour manager, personal friend, and travelling companion from the early days in 1960s Greenwich Village through the late 90's. Another Side of Bob Dylan recounts landmark events including Dylan's infamous motorcycle crash; meeting the Beatles on their first US tour; his marriage to Sara Lownds, his romances with Suze Rotolo, Joan Baez, and others; fellow travelers Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Wavy Gravy, Dennis Hopper, The Band, The Traveling Wilburys, and more; memorable concerts, and insights on Dylan's songwriting process. On January 26th, 2001, after recording more than 24 hours of taped memories in preparation for writing this book, Victor Maymudes suffered an aneurysm and died. His son Jacob has written the book, using the tapes to shape the story. A Los Angeles Times Best Seller.

In Understanding Social Action, Promoting Human Rights, editors Ryan Goodman, Derek Jinks, and Andrew K. Woods bring together a stellar group of contributors from across the social sciences to apply a broad yet conceptually unified array of advanced social science research concepts to the study of human rights and human rights law. The book focus on three key methodological and substantive areas: actors, or social and political perspectives, including behavioral economics; communication, covering linguistics, media studies, and social entrepreneurship; and groups, via organizational theory, political economy, social movements, and complexity theory. Their goal is to provide a more comprehensive and more practical theory of social action, which necessarily requires a better understanding of individuals, organizations of individuals, and the ways in which both relate to other individuals and organizations.

"Off the Tracks: Cautionary Tales About the Derailing of Mental Health Care delivers more than its title. It is both a stimulating, accessible read and a highly researched, valuable, and thought provoking work. It will appeal to both professionals and the general public. The authors' thesis, that treatment relationships are a powerful force in and of itself, is illustrated by extensive narrative examples of various theoretical approaches of mismanaged relationships that harmed patients. The authors include physical treatments since they too involve clinical judgments. The range of examples in the study is extensive. Off the Tracks will intrigue and enrich all readers." --Judith Schachter, Former President, American Psychoanalytic Association (1994-1996)

To Bill Janovitz, all artists reveal themselves through their work and the Rolling Stones are no different. Each exposes a little more of their soul. Written by Stones fanatic, musician, and writer Bill Janovitz, this is a song-by-song chronicle that maps the landmarks of the band's career while expanding upon their recording and personal history through insightful and energetic prose. With its conversational tone - much like friends pouring over old records on a Saturday afternoon - the book presents the musical leaps taken by the band and a discussion of how the lyrical content both reflected and influenced popular culture. The song choices - fifty in all - are chronological and subjective. Most of them are the classic hits, however, the book digs deeper into beloved album tracks and songs with unique stories behind them. Rocks Off is the ultimate listening guide and thinking man's companion that will spur readers to dust off those old albums and listen in with a newfound perspective on one of the most famous and acclaimed rock'n'roll bands of all time.
