Following up our hit first volume of the 'horror comic for girls' with another collection of two stories: The Sentinels and End of The Line. Misty was a revolutionary concept by 2000 AD's creator Pat Mills in 1978 and left its mark on a whole generation of young women. The two identical tower blocks, known as 'The Sentinels' to the locals, stand tall over the town of Birdwood - but only one is occupied while the other remains mysteriously empty. When Jan Richards' family lose their home they decide to hide out in the abandoned block so they can stay together, only to be sent into a parallel world where the Nazis conquered Britain in 1940... In End of the Line, Ann's father was one of a group of engineers believed to have been killed whilst working on an extension to the London Underground but when she and her mother are invited to the opening of the new train tunnel, Ann discovers a mysterious time portal through which several workers are being kept as slaves by an evil Victorian called Lord Vicary. * Never before collected this is the comic that readers have been calling for for years. It was a big influence on many including Kick-Ass, Kingsman and Woman in Black screenwriter Jane Goldman. * This stand-alone collection contains the entire run of Misty's two most popular strips * A forgotten chiller from the heady days of ground-breaking British comics. * From the new Treasury of British Comics list from Rebellion, highlighting classic British comics. * Previous titles: The Ballad of Halo Jones 9781781084526; Misty 9781781084533

Mystical relics. Powerful vampires. Strange allies. It's hell being a teenager. Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father. But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father's journal from under a dusty floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England. The entries drew her to this seemingly quaint village, which Larna discovers isn't as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn't the only one trying to track her father down. Could this explain her father's disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad's master plan all along?

The Seductions of Quantification

Measuring Human Rights, Gender Violence, and Sex Trafficking

We live in a world where seemingly everything can be measured. We rely on indicators to translate social phenomena into simple, quantified terms, which in turn can be used to guide individuals, organizations, and governments in establishing policy. Yet counting things requires finding a way to make them comparable. And in the process of translating the confusion of social life into neat categories, we inevitably strip it of context and meaning—and risk hiding or distorting as much as we reveal. With The Seductions of Quantification, leading legal anthropologist Sally Engle Merry investigates the techniques by which information is gathered and analyzed in the production of global indicators on human rights, gender violence, and sex trafficking. Although such numbers convey an aura of objective truth and scientific validity, Merry argues persuasively that measurement systems constitute a form of power by incorporating theories about social change in their design but rarely explicitly acknowledging them. For instance, the US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report, which ranks countries in terms of their compliance with antitrafficking activities, assumes that prosecuting traffickers as criminals is an effective corrective strategy—overlooking cultures where women and children are frequently sold by their own families. As Merry shows, indicators are indeed seductive in their promise of providing concrete knowledge about how the world works, but they are implemented most successfully when paired with context-rich qualitative accounts grounded in local knowledge.

You can’t look at the mixed lineup of this lot and not ask yourself what is it that makes a man compelling? One universal might be pulling power. Warren Beatty with a hair drier or 007 with a Walther PPK both did a brisk trade in the sack and again we return to the mystique of Valentino, to pose a threat the volcano needs to be active not just a smoking threat. Hard men are good to find, or that is at least what Hollywood has learnt and yet each generation of Hunk Sapiens mutates subtly. The stars that we loved in the 80s and 90s are middle aged men now and to some degree they fought for better roles with more depth of character, breaking the mould of grunty action hero or merely handsome romantic lead. This is true of the thinking woman's love Gods, Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Richard Gere and Viggo Mortensen but of little concern to the likes of Sly, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mel Gibson the three icons of unreconstructed muscled manhood as famous for their off screen alpha rage as their onscreen battles.

The second issue of Renziana is devoted to the orchid genus Phalaenopsis. Over the last decades, Phalaenopsis have become the most popular commercial orchids and house plants decorating thousands of window sills. Renziana readers will find professional advice for cultivation at home and commercial nurseries give insights of their artificial propagation methods. Like the first issue, Renziana illustrates the magnificent flowers of all wild species with colour images, supplemented by habitat photographs and information on the geographical distribution of the genus. In addition, an overview of the numerous natural and artificial hybrids is given. Finally, the importance of species protection in natural habitats, that are more and more reduced also for Phalaenopsis, is emphasized.
