Cuba is changing. As a tourist destination , the Caribbean island is becoming increasingly popular. In the first half of 2015 over two million holidaymakers came to Cuba - including around 500,000 Germans. But the growing tourism has been changing the island. Nowhere is this as palpable as in the capital Havana. Even now the panorama of the three-million metropolis is characterized by construction sites. Luxury hotels , golf courses and marinas are being built. The morbid charm of the city - the contrast between a glorious past and austere presence – fades. In his coffee table book Havana Andreas Kaiser operates this contrast out in all facets. On more than 300 captivating photos Kaiser shows the Cuban capital as a colorful source of zest for life , as El Dorado of the road cruisers and home of the Rumba. But he portrays Havana also as a center of colonial culture and architecture: Once dominated by the different occupiers - later drawn by revolution and socialism. Havana manifests the image of a fascinating city between love of life and the art of survival. A changing metropolis that - as shown here - soon will no longer exist. A tribute to the original, the real Havana.

One night, when Ethan reaches under his bed for a toy truck, he finds this note instead: “Monsters! Meet here for final test.” Ethan is sure his parents are trying to trick him into staying under the covers, until he sees five colorful sets of eyes blinking at him from beneath the bed. Soon, a colorful parade of quirky, squeaky little monsters compete to become Ethan’s monster. But only the little green monster, Gabe, has the perfect blend of stomach-rumbling and snorting needed to get Ethan into bed and keep him there so he falls asleep—which as everyone knows, is the real reason for monsters under beds. With its perfect balance of giggles and shivers, this silly-spooky prequel to the award-winning I Need My Monster and Hey, That’s MY Monster! will keep young readers entertained.

Founded in the late 1980s by Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman, Seattle-based Sub Pop Records released early recordings by then-upstart regional bands such as Green River, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Tad, Nirvana, Flaming Lips, Afghan Whigs, and Screaming Trees. When the world went grunge crazy in the 1990s, Sub Pop was suddenly the epicenter of Seattle cool. Emerging organically from Bruce Pavitt’s Subterranean Pop fanzine, the story of Sub Pop Records is the story of a couple of irreverent music lovers who stumbled into the record business because they simply loved working with bands they wanted to listen to themselves. From barely paying the bills to the trappings of major music industry success to the inevitable fallout, this is the inside story of the musicians, producers, staffers, and stars who built Sub Pop into an independent powerhouse. World Domination takes you deep inside the chaotic early days of the label’s founding, all the way to the present. It’s a fascinating snapshot of a label that has promoted Death Cab for Cutie, the White Stripes, the Shins, Iron & Wine, the Postal Service, Sleater-Kinney, Band of Horses, Flight of the Conchords, Fleet Foxes, Sunny Day Real Estate, Shabazz Palaces, the Head and the Heart, Father John Misty, and many others. Author Gillian G. Gaar, a longtime Seattle-based writer, draws on firsthand interviews, deep research, and her years of covering the Seattle scene as a local music journalist to bring together the first in-depth historical narrative of one of America’s more influential independent record labels.

A timely study of literary activist and poet Lola Ridge Author, poet, and memoirist Svoboda takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Ridge's childhood as a newly arrived Irish immigrant in the grim mining towns of New Zealand, to her years as a budding writer in Sydney, Australia, to her migration to America and the cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Once considered one of the most popular poets of her day, Ridge later fell out of critical favor due to verse that looked head on at the major issues of her time. This lively portrait is a who's who of all the key players in the arts, literature, and radical politics of the time, in which Lola Ridge stood front and center. Now more than ever this biography offers inspiration to all those engaged in dissenting literature of our time and the movements that have inspired this renaissance of literary activism that we are seeing today.

In 1974, at the age of seventeen, author Glenn Berger served as "Schlepper" and apprentice to the legendary recording engineer Phil Ramone at New York City's A&R Studios, and was witness to music history on an almost daily and nightly basis as pop and rock icons such as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Frank Sinatra, Burt Bacharach, Bette Midler, and James Brown performed their hit-making magic, honed their sound, strutted their stuff, bared their souls, and threw epic tantrums. In this memoir, full of revelatory and previously unknown anecdotal observations of these musical giants, Glenn recounts how he quickly learned the ropes to move up from schlepperhood to assistant to the tyrannical Ramone, and eventually, to become a recording engineer superstar himself. Not only is Never Say No to A Rock Star a fascinating, hilarious and poignant behind-the-scenes look of this musical Mecca, but Berger, now a prominent psychologist, looking back through the prism of his youthful experience and his years working as a counselor and therapist, provides a telling and honest examination of the nature of fame and success and the corollaries between creativity, madness and self-destruction.
