'Nobody does it better' Publishers Weekly Privately, they will never see eye to eye - that's why she fires him - but when Rachel vanishes, Spenser starts rattling skeletons in blue-blooded family closets and tangling with the Ku Klux Klan, ready to lay his life on the line to find Rachel Wallace.

Book In Pursuit of Spenser

    Book Details:
  • Author : Otto Penzler
  • Publisher : BenBella Books, Inc.
  • Release : 2012-04-24
  • ISBN : 1935618571
  • Pages : 273 pages

Download or read book In Pursuit of Spenser written by Otto Penzler and published by BenBella Books, Inc.. This book was released on 2012-04-24 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Robert B. Parker passed in early 2010, the world lost two great men: Parker himself, iconic American crime writer whose books have sold more than 6 million copies worldwide, and his best-known creation, Spenser. Parker's Spenser series not only influenced the work of countless of today's writers, but is also credited with reviving and forever changing the genre. In Pursuit of Spenser offers a look at Parker and to Spenser through the eyes of the writers he influenced. Editor Otto Penzler-- proprietor of one of the oldest and largest mystery specialist bookstores in the country, New York's The Mysterious Bookshop, and renowned mystery fiction editor whose credits include series editor for the Best American Crime Writing and Best American Mystery Stories, among many others (and about whom Parker himself once wrote, "Otto Penzler knows more about crime fiction than most people know about anything")-- collects some of today's bestselling mystery authors to discuss Parker, his characters, the series, and their impact on the world. From Hawk to Susan Silverman to Jesse Stone and Sunny Randall, from the series' Boston milieu to Parker's own take on his character, In Pursuit of Spenser pays tribute to Spenser, and Parker, with affection, humor, and a deep appreciation for what both have left behind.

Book Law and Popular Culture

    Book Details:
  • Author : Michael Asimow
  • Publisher : Cambridge Scholars Publishing
  • Release : 2014-06-12
  • ISBN : 1443861588
  • Pages : 425 pages

Download or read book Law and Popular Culture written by Michael Asimow and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-06-12 with total page 425 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Commentators have noted the extraordinary impact of popular culture on legal practice, courtroom proceedings, police departments, and government as a whole, and it is no exaggeration to say that most people derive their basic understanding of law from cultural products. Movies, television programs, fiction, children’s literature, online games, and the mass media typically influence attitudes and impressions regarding law and legal institutions more than law and legal institutions themselves. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives enhances the appreciation of the interaction between popular culture and law by underscoring this interaction’s multinational and international features. Two dozen authors from nine countries invite readers to consider the role of law-related popular culture in a broad range of nations, socio-political contexts, and educational environments. Even more importantly, selected contributors explore the global transmission and reception of law-related cultural products and, in particular, the influence of assorted works and media across national borders and cultural boundaries. The circulation and consumption of law-related popular culture are increasing as channels of mass media become more complex and as globalization runs its uncertain course. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives adds to the critical understanding of the worldwide interaction of popular culture and law and encourages reflection on the wider implications of this mutual influence across both time and geography.
