New Order remains one of the most popular and influential bands of the last half century. After the death of Ian Curtis, lead singer for Joy Division, the three surviving band members - Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, and Stephen Morris - joined forces with Gillian Gilbert and became a new band. Founded in the dying years of the punk and disco movements, and combining elements of post-punk, new wave, and electronic dance music, New Order were responsible for some of the biggest hits of the era, and one of few bands to have achieved international mainstream success while retaining the reputation and status of a cult band. As the single photographer best liked and trusted by the band - since his first work photographing Joy Division for the New Musical Express in the late 1970s - Kevin Cummins was uniquely placed to document the rise and fall of New Order, from their formation in 1980 to their split in 1993. From their underground beginnings as the flagship group of the young Factory Records in Manchester to their biggest tours around Europe and the US, Cummins was close enough to capture the band in every light, from the intimacy of their home lives to the frenetic energy of their live performances. Collected here for the first time are more than a hundred of Kevin Cummins' photographs reflecting more than a decade of New Order. Prefaced by a selection of ephemera from the band and featuring conversations with band members Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, and Stephen Morris, as well as an introduction from the novelist and longtime admirer of the band Douglas Coupland, this is a stunning and elegiac celebration of a band whose influence on music and fashion is as palpable today as it was when they came together almost thirty-five years ago.

‘This book will delight both New Order-ites and general rock readers’ Mojo A ROLLICKING, NO-HOLDS-BARRED ACCOUNT OF NEW ORDER'S ENTIRE HISTORY. Two acclaimed albums and an upcoming US tour – Joy Division had the world at their feet. Then, on the eve of that tour, the band’s troubled lead singer, Ian Curtis, killed himself. The next time they got together, they were a new band. That band was New Order – their label was Factory Records, their club The Haçienda. Their distinctive sound paved the way for the dance music explosion that followed, earning them the reputation as one of the most influential bands of their generation, and changing the course of popular music. Following on from his bestselling titles The Haçienda and Unknown Pleasures, Peter Hook has written a rollicking, no-holds-barred account of the band's entire history. Substance is packed with never-before-seen detail, discographies and technical information. This is possibly the most entertaining memoir ever written by a British musician. ‘There are stories here that make Ozzy Osbourne looks like Mother Teresa’ Sunday Express ‘A rollicking read’ Record Collector ‘Rock writing rarely tells us properly what a band treading water or in slow decline feels like from the inside. Hook does so memorably’ Guardian ‘As mammoth and downright idiotic as the band deserves … something hilariously daft happens on nearly all of Substance’s 750 pages’ Classic Pop

The Press in New Order Indonesia is the most comprehensive book available in English on the print media during the Suharto presidency. Based on detailed and investigative research, it provides a succinct introduction to the political and economic forces shaping this dominant sector of the Indonesian media at a pivotal time in its development. The study documents the history of the press prior to the rise of President Suharto, surveys the changing New Order policies to the media, and analyses the various modes of control exercised through powerful government agencies and industry bodies. Throughout this critical historical period of political tension and economic transition, The Press in New Order Indonesia traces the development of huge media conglomerates which began to rival military muscle in shaping the media landscape of Indonesia. This study explains how the student press spilled off the campuses to play a unique political role. By contrast, a distinctly Islamic press achieved only very modest success. Focusing on Indonesian-language national daily newspapers, it also discusses news weeklies, periodicals and magazines, as well as publications in regional languages, English and Chinese. Brought back to life in Equinox Publishing's Classic Indonesia series, The Press in New Order Indonesia is required reading for students of Indonesian languages and cultures, Asian studies, Southeast Asian studies, media studies, journalism, and contemporary politics. David T. Hill is Professor of Southeast Asian Studies and Fellow of the Asia Research Centre, Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia.

“Bender's willingness to go deep, to burrow down into what's right and wrong about 21st century America and Americans, is a mirror that draws us in and does not allow us to look away." —Los Angeles Times on Refund The National Book Award finalist for Refund returns with a new collection of stories that boldly examines the changes in American culture over the last two years through the increasing presence of violence, bigotry, sexual harassment, and the emotional costs of living under constant threat. In the title story, the competition between two middle school cellists is affected by a shooting at their school, and it is only years later that they realize how the intrusion of violence affected the course of their lives. In ""This Is Who You Are,"" a young girl walks the line between Hebrew school and her regular school, realizing that both are filled with unexpected moments of insight and violence. In ""Three Interviews,"" an aging reporter must contend with her dwindling sense of self and resources, beleaguered by unemployment, which sets her on a path to three increasingly unhinged job interviews. In ""Mrs. America,"" a candidate for local office must confront a host of forces that threaten to undermine her campaign and expose her own role in the dissonance between what America is and what it should be. The New Order explores contemporary themes and ideas, shining a spotlight on the dark corners of our nature, our instincts, and our country.

This study identifies the factors behind the Indonesian military's decision to reposition its dominant role in socio-political affairs after the fall of Suharto. It covers the contestation between the military and the new civilian regime under President Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur) over its altered role, and the military's part behind his fall. Finally, the military's future role under President Megawati is assessed, together with the possibilities of it resuming power. The author, as a former ghostwriter at the Indonesian Ministries of Home Affairs and Defence, has been privy to the internal dynamics of the military and has personally interviewed untouchable figures such as former President Suharto. An up-to-date, well-informed study providing a useful contribution to the literature, particularly with regard to the younger generation of the military.
