The Real World XI: Chicago

MTV's 'The Real World' has become a mainline for cultural propagation. The archetype of the 'reality tv' genre, this weekly, pretend-documentary consolidates, edits, and cannibalizes culture.


A Soldier of the Revolution by Ward Just

The novel treats a subject of current political debate: our President's peculiar enthusiasm for turning many of our social obligations over to 'faith based' philanthropic organizations.


Something to Declare by Julian Barnes

He scourges the catacombs of literature and prose, and presents you with a glittering selection of informative gems.


Our Post-Human Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution by Francis Fukuyama

According to Fukuyama, this Pandora's box can still be shut, but only if we marshal the appropriate scientific and political forces and legislate our way to a safer tomorrow.


Hell to Pay by George Pelecanos

Pelecanos is a lifelong resident of the nation's capital who has observed gentrification erode whatever character or sense of continuity the environment once possessed.


A Great, Silly Grin: The British Satire Boom of the 1960s by Humphrey Carpenter

Satire's audiences have always tended to come from the very section of society that is being satirized.


Great Presidential Wit (I Wish I Was in the Book) by Bob Dole

If you had your doubts about Dole before, this will only confirm the worst of them.


Bad Fads by Mark A. Long

College students are often credited with the more bizarre fads which seem to have all been popularized briefly, then forgotten as soon as another trend hit the scene.

The Sex Pistols: self-titled

As the Pistols geared up for the release of 'God Save the Queen', scores of youths, scattered around Europe and elsewhere, sensed the imminent revolution: They dismissed David Bowie and Gary Glitter as bourgeois, listened to 'Anarchy in the UK', and as the last act of defiance, wore safety pins on their school uniforms.
