This, the second of three volumes of Susan Sontag's journals and notebooks, begins where the first volume left off, in the middle of the 1960s. It traces and documents Sontag's evolution from fledgling participant in the artistic and intellectual world of New York City to world-renowned critic and dominant force in the world of ideas with the publication of the groundbreaking Against Interpretation in 1966. As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh follows Sontag through the turbulent years of the 1960s—from her trip to Hanoi at the peak of the Vietnam War to her time making films in Sweden—up to 1981 and the beginning of the Reagan era. This is an invaluable record of the inner workings of one of the most inquisitive and analytical thinkers of the twentieth century at the height of her power. It is also a remarkable document of one individual's political and moral awakening.

Imperial Boredom offers a radical reconsideration of the British Empire during its heyday in the nineteenth century. Challenging the long-established view that that the Empire was about adventure and excitement, with heroic men and intrepid women settling new lands and spreading commerce and civilization around the globe, this thoroughly researched, engagingly written, and lavishly illustrated analysis instead argues that boredom was central to the experience of Empire. This volume looks at what it was actually like to sail to Australia, to serve as a soldier in South Africa, or to accompany a colonial official to the hill stations of India, and agrues that for numerous men and women, from governors to convicts, explorers to tourists, the Victorian Empire was dull and disappointing. Drawing on diaries, letters, memoirs, and travelogues, it demonstrates that all across the empire, men and women found the landscapes monotonous, the physical and psychological distance from home debilitating, the routines of everyday life wearisome, and their work unfulfilling. Ocean voyages were tedious; colonial rule was bureaucratic; warfare was infrequent; economic opportunity was limited; and indigenous people were largely invisible. The seventeenth-century Empire may have been about wonder and marvel, but the Victorian Empire was a far less exciting project.

Widely regarded as one of America's most important contemporary thinkers, Susan Sontag had a particular gift for reflecting on the meaning and influence of the visual, and On Photography became a seminal work for all those concerned with the interplay of images with the world.Now, more than thirty years after On Photography was first published, comes Sontag on Film: a collection of her writings and musings on films and cinema, gathered together here for the very first time by critic David Thomson and producer Tom Luddy. Inspired, vigorous and enlightening, the collection includes lucid discussions of the intersection between film and literature; in-depth studies of films and directors; and other such delightful and illuminating fragments as a list of Sontag's top-ten films taken from a 1982 issue of Sight and Sound.Sontag on Film is set to become a key work on the importance and significance of cinema in the modern world.Praise for Susan Sontag:'What ultimately matters about Sontag . . . is what she has defended: the life of the mind, and the necessity for reading and writing as "a way of being fully human"' Hilary Mantel, Los Angeles Times Book Review'Intellectually and imaginatively gifted to an extraordinary degree, she used her fearless intelligence to illuminate some of the deepest contradictions of contemporary life' John Gray, New Statesman'Complex and contradictory . . . one of America's greatest public intellectuals' ObserverSusan Sontag's books include four novels and numerous works of non fiction, among them Regarding the Pain of Others, On Photography, Illness as Metaphor, At the Same Time and Against Interpretation and Other Essays.

In this book, Nick Crossley explores the concept of reflexive embodiment - how we, as embodied beings, reflect upon our own embodiment. He considers the ways in which we modify and maintain our bodies, from brushing our teeth and washing our faces through to tattooing and bodybuilding. Some forms of 'body work' are demanded by social conventions; others represent legitimate choices, and others still deviate from or resist the norm. He argues that a proper understanding of reflexive embodiment must be alert to these differences, and that we must appreciate that our bodies are not passive or inert substances that we can mould as we like. They change in ways that we do not intend and of which we are not aware, and they may prove difficult to change in the ways we do intend. Many theorists in sociology offer perspectives on the link between society and body modification, mostly focused in one way or another upon 'modernity'.

The Esoteric

That connection between the mind and the stored energies gives a
consciousness of heat . Now this simply expresses the fact that so far all is in
readiness for practical use : like as if the horse were harnessed and put before
the wagon , the lines placed in the driver ' s bands ... relief and I longed to have
the nails driven into my quivering flesh , that so the anguish of the unspeakable
might find expression .
