Code of the Samurai
Learn the ways of the Japanese Bushido Code with this very readable, modern translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu. Code of the Samurai is a four-hundred-year-old explication of the rules and expectations embodied in Bushido, the Japanese Way of the Warrior. Bushido has played a major role in shaping the behavior of modern Japanese government, corporations, society, and individuals, as well as in shaping modern Japanese martial arts within Japan and internationally. The Japanese original of this book, Bushido Shoshinshu, (Bushido for Beginners), has been one of the primary sources on the tenets of Bushido, a way of thought that remains fascinating and relevant to the modern world, East and West. This handbook, written after five hundred years of military rule in Japan, was composed to provide practical and moral instruction for warriors, correcting wayward tendencies and outlining the personal, social, and professional standards of conduct characteristic of Bushido, the Japanese chivalric tradition. With a clear, conversational narrative by Thomas Cleary, one of the foremost translators of the wisdom of Asia, and powerfully evocative line drawings by master illustrator Oscar Ratti, this book is indispensable to the corporate executive, student of the Asian Culture, martial artist, those interested in Eastern philosophy or military strategy, as well as for those simply interested in Japan and its people.

A Twist of the Wrist II
Motorcycles weren't designed by opinions or good advice and riding them is the same. Keith Code's A Twist of the Wrist II describes with precision the essential riding techniques that all riders need to understand. Code lays out the seven knee jerk 'Survival Reactions' which every rider has experienced and clearly describes how they are, in every case, contrary to good technique. It is the first book to describe these and goes on to define, in step-by-step detail, the proper technical skills necessary to overcome them. Having good technical riding skills allows riders to conquer their fears and overcome their barriers to cornering. The book contains twenty-six chapters of exact procedures which address: Rider input, Steering, Precision Visual Skills, Braking, Body Position, Throttle Control, Lines, the different types of Traction and much more. A Twist of the Wrist II is based on Code's vast experience: acknowledged worldwide, Keith has trained and coached more riders and more champions than anyone else in the history of the sport. His California Superbike Schools have run in seventeen countries at one hundred and eleven tracks and are the number one school in all of them. A world wide best-seller since its publication and translated into seven languages, this go-to book for all motorcyclists from weekend riders to racers is now available in eBook format for your convenience.
From ACT UP to the WTO
In March 1987 a radical coalition of queer activists converged on Wall Street—their target, 'Business, Big Business, Business as Usual!!!' It was ACT UP's first demonstration. In November 1999 a radical coalition of environmental, labor, anarchist, queer, and human rights activists converged in Seattle—their target was similar, a system of global capitalism. Between 1987 and 1999 a new project in activism had emerged unshackled from past ghosts. Through innovative use of civil rights' era non-violent disobedience, guerrilla theatre, and sophisticated media work, ACT UP has helped transform the world of activism. This anthology offers a history of ACT UP for a new generation of activists and students. It is divided into five sections which address the new social movements, the use of street theater to reclaim public space, queer and sexual politics, new media/electronic civil disobedience, and race and community building. Contributions range across a diverse spectrum: The Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition, Jubilee 2000, Students for an Undemocratic Society, Fed Up Queers, Gender Identity Center of Colorado, Triangle Foundation, Jacks of Color, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Lower East Side Collective, Community Labor Coalition, Church of Stop-Shopping, Indy Media Collective, Black Radical Congress, The Theater of the Oppressed Laboratory, Adelante Street Theater; HealthGAP, Housing Works, SexPanic! and, of course, ACT UP itself.
