Focusing on ten films that span the range of the twentieth century, Thomas Leitch traces the transformation of three figures common to all crime films: the criminal, the victim and the avenger. He shows how the distinctions among them become blurred throughout the course of the century, reflecting and fostering a deep social ambivalence towards crime and criminals. The criminal, victim and avenger characters effectively map the shifting relations between subgenres (such as the erotic thriller and the police film) within the larger genre of crime film.

Who is a true African? This question has been asked and answered repeatedly through cycles of violent revolution over many years. The Sable draws you into this world at a flux point of the cycle, to a quiet farm where everything seems both ordered and content—until the violence and chaos arrives at the gates. The story is told through the eyes of two men: a farm owner and hunting guide of German descent, and his fiercely independent native top hand. As the story unfolds and the two men clash, they find themselves faced with life and death decisions both for themselves and their families. Rich with the beauty and the complexity of regional life, The Sable is a pastoral epic, a political thriller, and a riveting quest for big game. It immerses the reader in the cultures of black and white, city and countryside, native and immigrant, rich and poor. Its trajectory is unpredictable, as its characters are neither wholly good nor evil, but are complex and nuanced as only human beings under stress can be. It also features some of the finest African hunting scenes penned in a generation. Written by Michael S. Malone, one of the world’s best-known business and technology journalists, a noted entrepreneur, television host, and educator, The Sable is the product of multiple visits to Africa.

David Pirie’s acclaimed 'A Heritage of Horror' was the first book on the British horror movie, and the first to detect and analyse the roots of British horror, identifying it as 'the only staple cinematic myth which Britain can properly claim as its own.' It has long been regarded as a trail-blazing classic, “having the force of a revelation”, according to one recent study of the subject, and heralded by Michael Powell and Martin Scorsese. Now with 'A New Heritage of Horror', David Pirie has revised his original work, bringing the story up to date and into the 21st century. Alongside the classic films of the twentieth century, all explored within the full context of their production and appearance on our screens, he examines the latest horror boom, inaugurated by such films as 'The Others' and '28 Days Later'. He has also uncovered fresh documentation from the original files for this new edition, to add more revelations abuot the history of UK horror and Hammer Films, not least the largely untold story of their desperate battles against censorship. He has further up-dated the original text and added new illustrations. 'The New Heritage of Horror' promises to be one of the key film books of 2008.
