✏Blackout Book Summary : The most universal civilian privation in World War II Britain, the blackout possessed many symbolic meanings. Among its complicated implications for filmmakers was a stigmatization of film spectacle--including the display of "Hollywood women," whose extravagant appearance connoted at best unpatriotic wastefulness and at worst collaboration with the enemy. Exploring the wartime breakdown of conventional gender roles on the screen and in the audience, Antonia Lant demonstrates that many British films of the period signaled their national cinematic identity by diverging from the notion of the Hollywood star, the mainstay of commercial American motion pictures, replacing her with a deglamourized, mobilized heroine. Nevertheless, the war machine demanded that British films continue to celebrate stable and reassuring gender roles. Contradictions abounded, both within film narratives and between narrative and "real life." Analyzing films of all the major wartime studios, the author scrutinizes the efforts of realist and melodramatic texts to confront women's wartime experiences, including conscription. By combining study of contemporary posters, advertisements, propaganda notices, and cartoons with consideration of recent feminist theoretical work on the cinema, spectatorship, and history, she has produced the first book to examine the relationships among gender, cinema, and nationality as they are affected by the stresses of war. Originally published in 1991.

✏Blackout Book Summary : In 1980 the blackout sector was sectioned off by intrusive means defiant to the dignity of young Xavier. A flame flamboyant filled him with heartfelt loyalty, lightened the darkest of nights, ripened the demeanor of sister Sarah as well as the others of this sector inclusive of three bonded and directly involved. This family of five with a second sector in an even more trialing ordeal miraculously support the passions of those in sector two of 2012. Two simultaneous blackouts are set on two stages in alternate years1980 and 2012. The 2012 blackout situation was bleak, and an anonymous walking hero unit makes way through dangerous pitch-black streets of a metropolis. Through the visions of mercy, flames of undying will, perseverance of the cunning still hidden, as well as the simplicity offered by five and six as one, you too must experience Blackout.

✏Blackout Book Summary : BLACKOUT is the opening movement of a vast, absorbing two-volume novel that may well prove to be Connie Willis' masterpiece. Like her multi-award winning THE DOOMSDAY BOOK, this stunning new work marries the intricate mechanics of time travel to the gritty - and dangerous - realities of human history. The narrative opens in Oxford, England in 2060, where a trio of time traveling scholars prepares to depart for various corners of the Second World War. Their mission: to observe, from a safe vantage point, the day-to-day nature of life during this critical historical moment. As the action ranges from the evacuation of Dunkirk to the manor houses of rural England to the quotidian horrors of London during the Blitz, the objective nature of their roles gradually changes. Cut off from the safety net of the future and caught up in the chaotic events that make up history, they are forced to participate, in unexpected ways, in the defining events of the era. BLACKOUT is an ingeniously constructed time travel novel and a grand entertainment. More than that, it is a moving, exquisitely detailed portrait of a world under siege, a world dominated by chaos, uncertainty, and the threat of imminent extinction. It is the rare sort of book that transcends the limits of genre, offering pleasure, insight, and illumination on virtually every page.

✏Blackout Book Summary : “Like a John Grisham novel, from the very inception I was lured right into the novel and couldn’t put the book down. Every chapter ended with so much drama and mystery I had to keep reading until I was done. - Janet Po “Grafton brings mystery and fast-paced action into one neat package. "One Last Time" is written like a cable show and is one great ride. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up!” - Nancy Myers “Kinsey’s storytelling feels as real as Nora Robert’s. I picked up "One Last Time" and finished it in one sitting." - Mark Vetta, Jack Blake has a bit of an anger problem. He also started blacking out and waking up hours later without any memory of what he did during his blackout. With people depending on him for their safety and sometimes their lives he is forced to face the truth. Bianca Santos is a spoiled rich daughter of the biggest Latin pop star since Enrique Iglesias. She also liked playing games, dangerous games. Sometimes the only game worth playing is the game of life and death.
