Summary

Summary

A new scholarly analysis of the importance of direct democracy and national liberation in the work of autonomous Marxist intellectual C.L.R. James. Exploring James' perspectives on Ghana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, Haiti, Trinidad, Cuba, India, and China, Matthew Quest eschews the dominant interpretation of James as a cultural critic and restores the centrality of independent labor action in James' famous notion that "every cook can govern."

Matthew Quest received his PhD in American civilization from Brown University and is a visiting lecturer at Georgia State University.


Summary

IMAX director Greg MacGillivray's 2003 film, Coral Reef Adventure, follows the exploits and crusades of the husband and wife underwater filmmaking duo of Howard and Michelle Hall as they embark on a ten-month expedition of the world's most vibrant and endangered coral reefs. Beginning at the Great Barrier Reef off the Australian coast, the Halls explore the vast underwater ecosystem and the scores of wildlife that thrive off of it. Traveling on throughout a number of the South Pacific's most spectacular reefs, the filmmakers also visit some reefs on the verge of extinction, making the sobering point that an entire reef's death occurs very quickly, while its creation takes thousands of years. Coral Reef Adventure marks the third oceanic, ecologically-themed IMAX film from MacGillivray, following The Living Sea and Dolphins. Also featured in the film are famed sea explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of the pioneering oceanographer Jacques Cousteau) and noted ichthyologist Richard Pyle. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi
