Metallica: Back to the Front tells the amazing, fully authorized story of the band's seminal Master of Puppets album and tour. Released on March 3, 1986, Metallica's Master of Puppets album became an instant classic and announced the band as the most electrifying new voice in rock. Thirty years later, this six-time platinum album is considered to be the high-water mark of Metallica's incredible career, with songs like "Battery," "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)," and the title track, "Master of Puppets," still a staple of their sell-out live shows. Sadly, this hugely successful period for Metallica was marred by a tragedy that shook the band to its foundation: the death of bassist Cliff Burton in a tour bus accident on September 27, 1986. For the first time, Metallica: Back to the Front tells the fully authorized story of the creation of the Master of Puppets album and the subsequent tour. Featuring new and exclusive interviews with band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, and Kirk Hammett, this is the definitive account of the most venerated period of Metallica's history, from the incredible highs of touring in support of Ozzy Osbourne to the lows of losing a key member of the band and crucial part of the Metallica sound. Metallica: Back to the Front will also feature interviews with other important figures in the band's history, including managers Cliff Burnstein and Peter Mensch, Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin, Anthrax band members Scott Ian and Charlie Benante, and many, many more. Filled with hundreds of never-before-seen images from the band's personal archives, this deluxe volume will combine an in-depth narrative with stunning visuals, taking fans further into this defining period of the band's career than ever before. Released to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the Master of Puppets album and tour, Metallica: Back to the Front is created with the full cooperation and support of the band. The result is a treasure trove of stories, anecdotes, and never-before-seen photographs that legions of Metallica fans will cherish for generations to come.

A rich and sobering exploration of war -- and of the meaning of history -- that will engage general readers and military buffs alike. The Western Front, the sinuous, deadly line of trenches that stretched from the English Channel to Switzerland during the First World War, also formed a scar on the imaginative landscape of our century. Back to the Front chronicles author, Stephen O'Shea's, 500-kilometre walk down what was once no man's land. In the process of making this singular trek through the old battlefields, O'Shea ruminates on the many meanings of the Front and on the nature of his own generation's - the Baby Boomer's - indifference to the past.

Jeff Gordon's long-awaited racing memoir -- an unprecedented and thrilling look inside the life of a NASCAR champion. It didn't matter that Jeff Gordon hailed from California -- hardly a fountain of stockcar pedigree -- or that they said he was too small to race with the big boys on the dirt tracks and ovals of his youth. It didn't matter that Dale Earnhardt called this upstart "Wonderboy" -- no one raced the legendary Earnhardt harder, and no two drivers had more respect for each other. And it didn't matter that the racing world said Gordon was finished with the breakup of the crew on the #24 car and the departure of Ray Evernham, his crew chief, in 1999 -- he came back two seasons later to win a record-equaling fourth Winston Cup, this time with Robbie Loomis as crew chief. In the end, all that matters is that Jeff Gordon is the greatest living NASCAR champion, and it only remains to be seen just how many championships he can win. But what's it really like to climb into a stockcar every weekend and challenge for a championship? Offering a never-before-seen entry into the thrilling world of NASCAR racing, Jeff Gordon takes us into the cockpit of the #24 DuPont Chevrolet car; right into the garages where his cars are made; and inside the lives and efforts of his extraordinary team, the Rainbow Warriors. Just how does his car get built, tested, and driven, and how do these personalities mesh into a championship team? Along the way we find out what he thinks of life as both a NASCAR champion and a never-left-alone celebrity, where he came from and to whom he owes all his successes, and above all, what it takes to be a champion in one of the most dangerous and thrilling sports of all. Jeff Gordon: Racing Back to the Front -- My Memoir is a pit pass all its own, giving passionate NASCAR fans unique access into the life and career of one of the most storied champions in the sport.

This story is raw. It’s real. It alternately bleeds death, exposes the rise of unbearable doubt and offers hope to good kids who dared to believe in themselves and the team. The teens, some who were sage veterans and others who were rookies, tried to defy the pop-culture norms, embraced hard work and readily accepted sacrifice to become the Skaneateles cross country team. And that 2006 squad had something to prove. An insider’s story like this has never been told. Interspersed is the somber letter from the state penitentiary, e-mails from an Athens Olympian and heart-wrenching e-mails to the coach that drip with grief and bravado on lonely nights when dreams can seem to either fade-away and die or grow more real as belief becomes bolder and wins are guaranteed under the cover of darkness. This is New York State Cross Country—and it doesn’t get any better. Nothing has been left out. One was imprisoned for killing a childhood friend. Two others faced arrest in an incident involving alcohol that jeopardized the girls’ 14-year unbeaten streak. One poetic soul was senselessly eliminated from the human gene pool. Another was a wiry-haired and ever-smiling national champion, Olympian and high school superstar intent on breaking the 4-minute mile. His story is told here for the first time. What happened during the 2006 Skaneateles Cross Country season is revealed intimately and starkly in jaw-dropping detail. Excited to have their story told, the kids were all anxious about being caught naked in such a personal and public way. The legends who paved the way had state and section titles galore and it was from that long shadow that the 2006 team sought to escape as they vowed to write their own chapter. Don’t be too judgmental. With luck, this could be you.

The universal human instinct is to run from an outbreak of disease like Ebola. These doctors run toward it. Their job is to stop epidemics from happening. They are the disease detective corps of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the federal agency that tracks and tries to prevent disease outbreaks and bioterrorist attacks around the world. They are formally called the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS)—a group founded more than fifty years ago out of fear that the Korean War might bring the use of biological weapons—and, like intelligence operatives in the traditional sense, they perform their work largely in anonymity. They are not household names, but over the years they were first to confront the outbreaks that became known as hantavirus, Ebola, and AIDS. Every day they work to protect us by hunting down the deadly threats that we forget until they dominate our headlines, West Nile virus, anthrax, and SARS among others. In this riveting narrative, Maryn McKenna—the only journalist ever given full access to the EIS in its fifty-three-year history—follows the first class of disease detectives to come to the CDC after September 11, the first to confront not just naturally occurring outbreaks but the man-made threat of bioterrorism. They are talented researchers—many with young families—who trade two years of low pay and extremely long hours for the chance to be part of the group that are on the frontlines, in the yellow suits and masks, that has helped eradicate smallpox, push back polio, and solve the first major outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, toxic shock syndrome, and E. coli O157 and works to battle every new disease before it becomes an epidemic. Urgent, exhilarating, and compelling, Beating Back the Devil takes you inside the world of these medical detectives who are trying to stop the next epidemic—before the epidemics stop us.

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of D-Day, Back to the Front is designed by the collaborative team Diller + Scofidio (see also Flesh) and includes their newest project, sited on the tour route of the five D-Day beaches. Seductive in its design and production, Back to the Front provides critical analyses of the complex relationship between tourism and war as related forms of conquest. Back to the Front is comprised of three sections. The first presents suitCase Studies: the Production of a National Past, an installation by Diller + Scofidio exhibited in the U.S. and France. The second portion consists of original texts on the theme of war and tourism by five contemporary authors, whose fields range from hilosophy to cultural theory to fiction: George Van den Abbeele envisages "Militarism and Tourism as transcultural forms of invasion in competition with each other"; Jean-Louis Dotte shows that "tourism no longer feeds solely on the wartime is no longer soft, contemporary form of conquest...Tourism, rather, becomes an essential military objective"; Thomas Keenan interrogates the hyper-mediatization of these same wars "as proof of the birth of new strategic requirements, cultural and media-oriented alike, for military strategies"; Frederick Migayrou inquires into "a territorial application, the landings and mechanics behind them, so as to enhance, in negative relief, an impossible psychology of combat, one that arises from a procedural complexity leading the body to...its total destruction"; and Lynne Tillman offers the novella "Lust for Loss." The final section of the book is Diller + Scofidio's project: in full color, these five fold-out documents (one for each beach), deploy hybridphoto-drawings and text-weaves to probe the relationship between these confrontations.

“For a Second Wave feminist like myself, Girls to the Front evokes wonderfully the way the generation after mine soaked up the promise and the punishment of feminist consciousness....A richly moving story.” —Village Voice writer Vivian Gornick Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of the Riot Grrrl movement—the radical feminist punk uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s, altering America’s gender landscape forever. Author Sara Marcus, a music and politics writer for Time Out New York,, Pos, and Heeb magazine, interweaves research, interviews, and her own memories as a Riot Grrrl front-liner. Her passionate, sophisticated narrative brilliantly conveys the story of punk bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy—as well as successors like Sleater-Kinney, Partyline, and Kathleen Hanna’s Le Tigre—and their effect on today’s culture.

A first-hand account of the horrors of the Spanish Civil War, straight from the pen of one of the twentieth century’s most renowned authors. In 1936, George Orwell enlisted with a left-wing Spanish militia organization, The Workers’ Part of Marxist Unification, out of a combined desire to fight against fascism and to record the events of the war. He fought against the fascist forces for several months, before infighting among the various left-wing groups turned him against former allies, and eventually forced him to flee the country. Homage to Catalonia is a vivid, intensely personal retelling of these events. Penguin Random House Canada is proud to bring you classic works of literature in e-book form, with the highest quality production values.

In the 1980s, the San Francisco Bay Area was heaven for hardcore headbangers. Shunning Hollywood hairspray and image in favor of a more dangerous street appeal, the Bay Area thrash metal scene was home to Exodus, Metallica, Testament, Possessed, Death Angel, Heathen, Vio-Lence, Attitude Adjustment, Forbidden, and Blind Illusion ? and served as a second home to like-minded similar bands like Slayer, Mercyful Fate, Anthrax, Megadeth, and more. Beginning as teenagers taking snapshots of visiting heavy metal bands during the 1970s, Brian "Umlaut" Lew and Harald "O." Oimoen documented the birth and growth of the local metal scene. Featuring hundreds of unseen live and candid color and black-and-white photographs, Murder in the Front Row captures the wild-eyed zeal and drive that made Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth into legends, with over 100 million combined records sold.
