Click here to listen to the interview with Judith Stiehm and Nobel Prize-winner Wangari Maathai on the Mimi Geerges show. Since it was first awarded in 1901, only twelve women have won the Nobel Prize for Peace. Hailing from all over the world, including the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Central America, some have held graduate degrees, while others are barely schooled. Some began their work when young, some well past middle age. One was titled and two were subsistence farmers. This book shows their varied lives in fascinating detail. Engaged and inspiring, these women clearly demonstrate that there is something each of us can do to advance a just, positive peace. Whether they began by insisting on garbage collection or simply by planting a tree, each understood that peace must be global in order to be sustained. All learned that peace is not always popular, but believed they must persevere. They shared a common vision and commitment undiminished by obstacles and opposition. All are truly champions for peace.

A veritable bible for fans and newcomers alike, Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film offers an extraordinary close-up of the hitherto overlooked golden age of Japanese cult cinema from the 1950s through the 1970s. Having unique access to top maverick filmmakers and Japanese genre film icons, Chris Desjardins brings together interviews with, and original writings on, such transgressive directors as Seijun Suzuki (Branded to Kill) and Koji Wakamatsu (Ecstasy of the Angels), as well as performers like Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba (The Streetfighter, Kill Bill Vol. 1) and Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood). Desjardins brings us up to date with an overview of such Japanese "enfants terribles" as Takashi Miike (Audition) and Kiyoshi Kurasawa (Cure). Illustrated with fantastic stills and posters from some of Japan's finest cult and action films, the book also provides detailed extras including filmographies and related bibliographies.
