Book Description: In the world of slapstick comedy, few are more beloved than the Three Stooges. Throughout their 190 short films, they consistently delivered physical, verbal and situational comedy in new and creative ways. Following the trio from outer space to ancient Rome, this volume provides an in-depth look at their comedy and its impact on twentieth century art, culture and thought. This analysis reveals new insights into the language, literary structure, politics, race, gender, ethnicity and even psychology of the classic shorts. It discusses the elements of surrealism within the Stooges films, exploring the many ways in which they created their own reality regardless of time and space. The portrayal of women and minorities and the role of the mistake in Stooges' works are also addressed. Moreover, the book examines the impact that the Columbia Studios style and the austerity of its Short Subjects Department had on the work of the Three Stooges, films that ironically have outlasted more costly and celebrated productions.

Book Description: The Get-Over-Yourself Self-Help Book and Other Essays presents a collection of vignettes, narratives, and rants that detail the often absurd business of getting on with life. In an attempt to aspire to a so-called higher life, many of us fear both death and youth, reaching for perfection through the latest technical gadgets that encourage us to cling to preconceived notions of ourselves and to define ourselves through a text message. But is that really any way to truly live? Baby boomer columnist and curmudgeon Sylvia Shawcross believes that satirists have a purpose in this world—to help others to laugh at the absurdity of life. In her second compilation of humorous reflections, Shawcross begins with a hilarious recounting of the frustrating chain of events that occur when she attempts to replace a broken remote at the electronics store and continues with a series of lighthearted essays where she reveals the unconventional and often wacky behavior of those she encounters daily. From the reasons behind rampant consumerism to the forced reprogramming behind ten-digit dialing, Shawcross contemplates issues of global importance while encouraging all of us to wake up and smell the high-priced latté—for sadly, as she says, this is just how it is. The Get-Over-Yourself Self-Help Book and Other Essays provides an eye-opening, amusing glimpse into the mind of a curmudgeon in all her unabashed glory.

Book Description: A groundbreaking book that dissects a slanderous history dating from cinema's earliest days to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters that feature machine-gun wielding and bomb-blowing "evil" Arabs Award-winning film authority Jack G. Shaheen, noting that only Native Americans have been more relentlessly smeared on the silver screen, painstakingly makes his case that "Arab" has remained Hollywood's shameless shorthand for "bad guy," long after the movie industry has shifted its portrayal of other minority groups. In this comprehensive study of over one thousand films, arranged alphabetically in such chapters as "Villains," "Sheikhs," "Cameos," and "Cliffhangers," Shaheen documents the tendency to portray Muslim Arabs as Public Enemy #1--brutal, heartless, uncivilized Others bent on terrorizing civilized Westerners. Shaheen examines how and why such a stereotype has grown and spread in the film industry and what may be done to change Hollywood's defamation of Arabs.

Book Description: Der internationale Bestseller »Heil Hitler, das Schwein ist tot!« von Rudolph Herzog jetzt neu aufgelegt bei KiWi. Natürlich wurde auch im Dritten Reich gelacht – aber anders als heute. Vom diffamierenden Witz der Nazis über die eher harmlosen Flüsterwitze bis zum bitteren Spott der Verfolgten: Rudolph Herzog beleuchtet alle Bereiche des Lebens unter Hitler. Dadurch kommt er ungewöhnlich nah an das, was die Menschen wirklich dachten, was sie ärgerte, was sie zum Lachen brachte; auch an das, was sie wussten und was sie geflissentlich ausblendeten. Die Reaktion der Staatsgewalt wiederum, die die Witze sehr genau registrierte und sich dadurch herausgefordert fühlte, zeigte, was die Machthaber fürchteten. Die Analyse des Humors im Nationalsozialismus gibt einen tiefen Einblick in die wahren Befindlichkeiten der sogenannten Volksgemeinschaft. Rudolph Herzogs Buch »Heil Hitler, das Schwein ist tot!« ist 10 Jahre nach Erscheinen schon ein Klassiker. »Ein spannendes Sachbuch« Der Spiegel»Das erste umfassende Buch über Komik und Humor im Dritten Reich.« Süddeutsche Zeitung»Fesselnd – eine beeindruckende Untersuchung, die wichtige Fragen aufwirft« The Sunday Times (UK)»So haben Sie Nazi-Deutschland noch nie gesehen!« The Stranger
