Author: Martin James Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/12/2014

He champions local produce and loves growing his own, and this irresistible collection of recipes ranges from fancy dinners to impress friends, to those times when you just need to grab lunch for one in a hurry. Much-loved for his trademark wholesome, hearty British food, in this book James shows off a fresh, light and ultra-modern side, too, in dishes like Shaved cauliflower salad with barbecued honey tomatoes. The very British love of spicy foods is properly indulged with recipes from all over the world, including Indian deep-fried soft-shell crab with a delicious home-made lime pickle. There is also the true comfort food - such as Chicken and wild mushroom frying pan pie - and old favourites such as chicken Kiev.

Dave Grohl Times Like His: Foo Fighters, Nirvana and Other Misadventures

Author: Martin James Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/07/2015

Foo Fighters emerged from the morass of suicide and potent musical legacy that was Nirvana to establish themselves against all odds as one of the most popular rock bands in the world. Deflecting early critical disdain, Dave Grohl has single-handedly reinvented himself and cemented his place in the rock pantheon. This is his story, from his pre-Nirvana days in hardcore band Scream to his current status as a festival conquering, Grammy winning, platinum-selling grunge legend. Across the entire body of Foo Fighters albums, the whole legendary Nirvana tale, the pre-history in the nascent Seattle scene and Grohl's flirtations with Queens of the Stone Age and his supergroup side-project Them Crooked Vultures, this is an utterly comprehensive, insightful chronicle of Dave Grohl's remarkable life. Drawing on new interviews with key figures in the Grohl story, this definitive biography of one of modern rock's most influential figures includes the stories of the multi-platinum opus Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace, 2011's Wasting Light, which saw Grohl reunited with Nirvana producer Butch Vig and Sonic Highways, their ambitious homage to coast-to-coast US classic rock.

Antonio Gramsci Critical Assessments of Leading Political Philosophers

Antonio Gramsci Critical Assessments of Leading Political Philosophers

Author: Martin James Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/09/2001

From the sociology of modern capitalism to state theory and cultural and media studies, Gramsci's ideas have become a central component of mainstream social and political thought since the publication of his writings, in English, in the 1960s. In particular, his concept of 'hegemony', denoting the struggle for ideological dominance by social classes, has been fundamental to the understanding of power in modern states. Over the past thirty years, Gramsci's ideas have been influential in the following areas: * Marxist Political Theory * The Sociology of Culture and Ideology * Political Analysis and State Theory * Cultural Studies * Critical International Relations * Post-structuralist Political Thought With both a general introduction and individual volume introductions and including articles translated from Italian for the first time, this is the only collection of its kind and the first systematic collection of over thirty years worth of critical commentary on this influential figure.
