Director of The Terminator, Aliens and Titanic, James Cameron’s latest movie, Avatar, is the most viewed cinema release of all time, yet to date receives little academic attention. Filling the... More > gap, editor of www.DeepFocusFilm.com, Bryn V. Young-Roberts, researches Avatar’s historical and cultural relevance with its first in-depth examination while simultaneously discussing the Cameron oeuvre. From the perspective of historical contextualisation and cultural analysis we decipher its socially significant subtext, encouraging a view that Avatar is not exclusively a generic entertainment spectacle. Providing foundations for future studies, we examine the film as metaphor for the Iraq War, advocator of the Internet as liberation tool, and political stance to the Bush administration. Fear of the industrial-military complex, and romantic ideals of Class are also analysed. Ultimately, the volume summarizes Avatar in relation to Cameron’s other work and how it fits into our larger, contemporary society.< Less

More > little while.” – Paul Lisicky, author of Lawnboy and Famous Builder “In The Young Orator Sarah Sarai offers her readers the gritty truth and surreal world of family life viewed from ‘life’s epicenter’ which is, of course, an eight-year-old girl. With the true vision of well-written fiction, Sarai takes her reader on a road trip full of laughable drama and the messy humanity of being alive while moving as a family unit through the world. Word by word, sentence by sentence, a great read.” – Sally Bellerose, author of The Girls Club< Less
