    Brilliant illustrated guide to the best-known and most controversial continental philosopher of the latter 20th century. Jacques Derrida is the most famous philosopher of the late 20th century. Yet Derrida has undermined the rules of philosophy, rejected its methods, broken its procedures and contaminated it with literary styles of writing. Derrida's philosophy is a puzzling array of oblique, deviant and yet rigorous tactics for destabilizing texts, meanings and identities. 'Deconstruction', as these strategies have been called, is reviled and celebrated in equal measure. Introducing Derrida introduces and explains his work, taking us on an intellectual adventure that disturbs some of our most comfortable habits of thought.

    The world of sports is tough, competitive, and often hysterical. Steve Moore highlights the humor of sports and creates moments of absurdity in his comic strip In the Bleachers. In this e-book original compilation, the sport of fishing becomes less of a relaxing day on the water, and more a battle of wits between fish and unsuspecting fishermen. The comic wit of these shrewd fish while they attempt to bait their human predators accompanies the grisly and ironic illustrations that Steve Moore is known for.   This latest compilation of In the Bleachers features Steve Moore’s unique comedic style that has propelled his career from journalism to TV/feature film animation. He has had huge success in the industry with two animated feature films and 26 animated shorts for ESPN. Moore’s success has not diminished his devotion to his comic strip as he continues to draw from his experience to give each of his comics a fresh and hilarious take on sports.

    Following in the footsteps of the highly successful Queer: A Graphic History, illustrator Jules Scheele teams up with Dr Laura Locker in this comic-book introduction to the political history of the Land of Opportunity.
    How did
    a political outsider like Trump win the 2016 presidential election? Why do some
    Americans feel so strongly about gun rights? Is there a role for more than two
    political parties in the system?
    Politics
    isn’t something that just occurs in the West Wing or the gleaming Capitol
    building – it comes from the interaction between state and society, the
    American people living their daily lives. In this unique graphic guide, we
    follow modern citizens as they explore everything from the United States’
    political culture, the Constitution and the balance of power, to social
    movements, the role of the media, and tensions over race, immigration, and LGBT
    rights.
    Step
    right up, and see what lies beneath the pageantry and headlines of this great
    nation.

    About the Author
    Paul is a comic poet-songwriter and humorous illustrator-cartoonist who is based in Howth, Co. Dublin, though UK born.
    In 2004, Paul got married to his other half, Daria, and very early on they discovered they were pregnant. Thrilled, Paul thought it would be nice to write some silly rhymes for their unborn child, and later, after suffering a miscarriage, he decided it would be therapeutic to write the rhymes anyway. 
    When he showed them to his wife and some friends, he was greatly encouraged and, not knowing how to find an illustrator, he took a stab at the drawings himself. Referencing his lifelong love of comics and cartoons, to create what he thought would be suitable illustrations, he continued to receive very positive encouragement and in the years that followed he found himself full-time doodling and creating mini books for children to enjoy. Today, Paul goes nowhere without a pen and pad to doodle whenever he can.
