Summary

A survivor’s true story of a railway catastrophe that transformed her life—and turned her into a passionate advocate for safety and disaster prevention.  Terror by Rail is the compelling true story of a major catastrophic event: the Amtrak 188 accident on May 12, 2015. After the accident, Lynn Radice faced a difficult journey of recovery from trauma—and at the same time, her passion for answers caused her to ask questions about train safety and the bigger global issues that are challenges of the rail.   A must read for anyone who travels, lives, or works near a rail system, Terror by Rail is a wakeup call. As the phrase goes, “See Something Say Something”—and in this book, the author is doing just that. This story of a single mom’s heartbreaking journey through hell and back will give everyone facing challenges in their life a bit of hope that nothing is permanent, and it is possible to come through the pain to the other side, and make things better in the process.

    A provocative re-reading of Stanley Kubrick’s work and its focus on masculine desireThe work of Stanley Kubrick amounts to a sustained reflection on the male condition: past, present, and future. The persistent theme of his filmmaking is less violence or sex than it is the pressurized exertion of masculinity in unusual or extreme circumstances, where it may be taxed or exaggerated to various effects, tragic and comic—or metamorphosed, distorted, and even undone.The stories that Kubrick’s movies tell range from global nuclear politics to the unpredictable sexual dynamics of a marriage; from a day in the life of a New York City prizefighter preparing for a nighttime bout to the evolution of humankind. These male melodramas center on sociality and asociality. They feature male doubles, pairs, and rivals. They explore the romance of men and their machines, and men as machines. They figure intensely conflicted forms of male sexual desire. And they are also very much about male manners, style, taste, and art.Examining the formal, thematic, and theoretical affiliations between Kubrick’s three bodies of work—his photographs, his documentaries, and his feature films—Kubrick’s Men offers new vantages on to the question of gender and sexuality, including the first extended treatment of homosexuality in Kubrick’s male-oriented work.
