An examination, through personal narratives and reflective commentary, of life without sensation or movement in the body. In writing Still Lives, Jonathan Cole wanted to find out about living in a wheelchair, without having what he calls "the doctor/patient thing" intervene. He has done this by asking people with spinal cord injuries the simple question of what it is like to live without sensation and movement in the body. If the body has absented itself, where does the person reside? He describes his method in the first chapter: "I have gone to people, not with a white coat or a stethoscope...[but] to listen to their lives as they express them," and it is the candid and powerful narratives of twelve people with spinal cord injuries that form the heart of the book.Asking his simple question, Cole discovers that there is no single or simple answer. The twelve people with tetraplegia (known as quadriplegia in the US) or paraplegia whose stories he tells testify to similar impairments but widely differing experiences. Cole employs their individual responses to shape the book into six main sections: "Enduring," "Exploring," "Experimenting," "Observing," "Empowering," and, finally, "Continuing." Each concludes with a commentary on the broader issues raised. Still Lives moves from a view of impairment as tragedy to reveal the possibilities and richness of experience available to those living with spinal injuries. More universally, it offers new perspectives on our relation to our bodies. In exploring the creative and imaginative adjustments required to construct a "still life," it makes a plea for the able-bodied to adjust their view of this most profound of impairments.

Moving Pictures, Still Lives revisits the cinematic and intellectual atmosphere of the late twentieth century. Against the backdrop of the historical fever of the 1980s and 1990s-the rise of the heritage industry, a global museum-building boom, and a cinematic fascination with costume dramas and literary adaptations-it explores the work of artists and philosophers who complicated the usual association between tradition and the past or modernity and the future. Author James Tweedie retraces the "archaeomodern turn" in films and theory that

This book by Moody’s son-in-law and former secretary is not, strictly speaking, a life story of the great evangelist. It is rather a loving estimate of his work and Spirit-filled life by one who was closely associated with him during his most fruitful years. The author endeavors to explain how “starting from nothing, Mr. Moody became the most influential spiritual figure America has yet produced.” He portrays Moody the man . . . in his daily contact with family and friends, as

Few photographers live up to the term "image-maker" as completely as Anton Corbijn. His photographs, as well-known as the rock stars he has been shooting for the past twenty years, often reveal truths that surprise even his subjects -- uncovering hidden aspects of their personalities, and imprinting them into our collective memory. His artistry has shaped, if not transformed, the image of numerous rock performers. His legendary portrait of the group Joy Division in a subway station, or his unforgettable
