At a time when few reviewers and critics were taking the study of film seriously, Robin Wood released a careful and thoroughly cinematic commentary on Ingmar Bergman's films that demonstrated the potential of film analysis in a nascent scholarly field. The original Ingmar Bergman influenced a generation of film scholars and cineastes after its publication in 1969 and remains one of the most important volumes on the director. This new edition of Ingmar Bergman, edited by film scholar Barry Keith Grant, contains all of Wood's original text plus four later pieces on the director by Wood that were intended for a new volume that was not completed before Wood's death in 2010. In analyzing a selection of Bergman's films, Wood makes a compelling case for the logic of the filmmaker's development while still respecting and indicating the distinctiveness of his individual films. Wood's emphasis on questions of value (What makes a work important? How does it address our lives?) informed his entire career and serve as the basis for many of these chapters. In the added material for this new edition, Wood considers three important films Bergman made after the book was first published-Cries and Whispers, Fanny and Alexander, and From the Life of the Marionettes-and also includes significant reassessment of Persona. These pieces provocatively suggest the more political directions Wood might have taken had he been able to produce Ingmar Bergman Revisited, as he had planned to do before his death. In its day, Ingmar Bergman was one of the most important volumes on the Swedish director published in English, and it remains compelling today despite the multitude of books to appear on the director since. Film scholars and fans of Bergman's work will enjoy this updated volume.

(Previously published as The Sunset Patriots) Admiral Theodore Magnuson, Director of the Office of Naval Intelligence, didn't like the idea of sending the Seventh Fleet to Vladivostock for a New Year's celebration with the Russians. The President didn't give a damn what Magnuson thought, however; he was after detente. Fearing the worst, Magnuson decides to run his own intelligence mission, sending men into Russia and China. The Admiral is certain the U.S. visit to the usually closed Soviet port is a cover for something. Something big. The Chinese are faced with a similar problem — and a big question. Why is a combined U.S.-Soviet fleet steaming into the East China Sea?

Lost in the dusty Inca ruins of Peru at age 6, tattooed by head-hunters in the jungles of Borneo at age 12, luxuriated lasciviously and flirted with pro-Castro revolutionaries in a corrupt pre-Castro Havana, wrestled a Bengal tiger, lived beneath the iron curtain's shadow in occupied Trieste, witnessed the astounding mid-hurricane Atlantic rescue of hundreds of passengers and sailors from a burning ship. An atypical upbringing meant atypical experiences. Stephen Baldwin's ordinary world involved living with very rich and very famous relatives and friends, including Adlai Stevenson, Richard Nixon, and the Washington Post's Phil and Kaye Graham. He explored virtually unknown temples in Angkor and Rangoon, routinely crisscrossed oceans in luxury liners that fully lived up to their promise, ran with the bulls in Pamplona when he was 20, was instrumental in saving thousands clinging to life after a cataclysmic tidal wave and cyclone in Bangladesh, then in setting up an underground railway for Bengali leaders escaping from Pakistani genocide, finally escaping to carry that story to the outside world. It is true that there are few undiscovered wildernesses today. Transportation and communication advances have blazingly brought everything close to us, but in that process nearly everything has been rendered commonplace. Yet much of the world was neither close nor common a mere 60 years ago, and Stephen had a front row seat to the spectacle sometimes getting too close to the fire. Shadows Over Sundials chronicles the astonishing adventures of a Foreign Service brat who later worked in poor countries for The Ford Foundation, Population Council, and United Nations, spearheading international development, then went on to tackle seemingly intractable problems in inner-city education, first as a New York City Teaching Fellow in a failing South Bronx elementary school, finally as Board Chair of a charter school he helped establish there to do it better. Mr. Baldwin is married to Barbara Radloff, has five children, and lives in New York City and Redding, Connecticut.

Secrets hidden in the darkness of the sea... Stolen at birth by her sea-lord father, Copper is returned to her mother, the queen, to experience life on their island home. But something is missing within her, for she is without a soul. Copper is adrift and alone until strangers come with Companion creatures and tell her of her destiny. For Copper is the Sea Dancer, one of five elements incarnate, and the fate of the world depends on the Dancers joining. Yet there are those who would pervert the Dancers' destiny, and an Emperor who will stop at nothing to prevent them from finding one another. As conspiracies unfold, and secrets are pierced, the upwelling of power that Copper controls is put to the test. The uneasy marriage of land and sea is about to break apart. And all hangs on Copper's choice...
