If your idea of a good night out is a movie based on a 400 year old play in blank verse, set in an imaginary and dystopian Liverpool with a cast that includes Eddie Izzard, Cherie Booth's dad and Craig who won Big Brother, all played out to the music of Chumbawamba, then get your coat now.

Named after Mary Magdalene, the penitent 'sinner' of the Gospels, the Magdalene laundries were closed institutions for 'fallen' women in Ireland. They were run by the misnamed 'Sisters of Mercy' on behalf of the Catholic hierarchy. More than 30,000 Irish women were incarcerated indefinitely in these institutions, and it is almost impossible to believe that the last one was closed as recently as 1996.

271

27

feb 03

 

'Live Forever' documents, in the words of writer and director John Dower, 'the rise and fall of one of the most visible movements in [contemporary] British music, Britpop', largely through interviews with some of the principal participants in the 'movement'--Damon Albarn of Blur, Noel Gallagher of Oasis and Jarvis Cocker of Pulp.

A terrorist attack has just occurred in the US, and father and daughter are live on air as rival network newsreaders.

This is merely the public face of a deep and bitter private rift that has long estranged the pair, and provided material for the tabloid newspapers.

feb 03

 

Mike Davis brings to each subject a completely idiosyncratic vision, with a huge passion to tell stories, explain and reveal. Dead Cities is a brilliant kaleidoscope of essays.

feb 03

 

Christian Wolmar is a bit of a Kiley fan--not the former soap actress turned pop star, but the former CIA agent turned transport supremo. Wolmar and co, caught between dislike of the PPP and distrust of the unions, think the issue must be one of 'bad management', and so look to the good manager--Kiley--as a hero.

Andy Strouthous: Books Review: No Prize for Booker (Brian Kelly: "Race, Class and Power in the Alabama Coalfields, 1908-1921")

32

feb 03

 

This book is a welcome addition to US labour history at a time when some labour historians find psychological explanations of racism fashionable. The struggle to unionise the Alabama coalfields from 1908- 1921 provides an effective rebuttal of the theory that white workers benefit from racism.

This is a collection of articles by an academic based in Canada who has written about both neoliberalism and the anti- capitalist movement's response. Rewriting Samuel Huntingdon, Gill refers to this battle as the 'clash of globalisations', and it is this clash which will shape the future of the 21st century.
