Here's what's new for May 2004.

GONZO IN COLOMBIA
The New York Times described Michael Taussig as "a gonzo
anthropologist." We think that was complimentary . . . . Gonzo or not,
Taussig has had a profound effect on anthropology, injecting a critical
self-consciousness into the ethnographer's work. In _My Cocaine Museum_ he
presents vivid ethnographic snapshots of Colombia, where gold runs in the
rivers and cocaine shapes political realities--gold and cocaine both
wending their way, eventually, through the canyons of Wall Street. We have
a chapter online:

ALEISTER CROWLEY IN THE DESERT
Victorian and Edwardian England was a laboratory for modernity--advancing
scientific rationalism as well as the occultish underside: magic, astral
travel, drug experimentation, sex, and alchemy. Alex Owen shows another
side of the Victorians in_The Place of Enchantment: British Occultism and
the Culture of the Modern_. We have an excerpt about Aleister Crowley's
transformative desert sojourn of 1909. The Queen Mother would have been
appalled. [No pictures, so safe for work.]

THE ROAD TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA
Since the Middle Ages pilgrims have walked the sacred route from Le Puy in
France, across the Pyrenees, to Santiago in Spain. Conrad Rudolph followed
in their footsteps and wrote a history, meditation, and travel guide:
_Pilgrimage to the End of the World: The Road to Santiago de Compostela_.
In our expert Rudolph weighs the pros and cons of the various routes to
Santiago:

SHAKE IT FOR JESUS
Popular Christian culture--the _Left Behind_ series, _VeggieTales_, the
True Love Waits chastity campaign--is more than a marketing niche; it's a
huge industry of video, music, magazines, and kitsch. _Shaking the World
for Jesus: Media and Conservative Evangelical Culture_ by Heather
Hendershot shows how evangelical pop culture has gone mainstream. Read an
excerpt:

PLAN AHEAD
We'll feature it on our homepage next month, but why wait? Reviewers and
golfers have warmly greeted Chicago's perhaps unlikely book project--a
translation of the official rules of golf into intelligble English. See
our website for the book at http://www.press.uchicago.edu/books/kuhn/ (or
http://www.golfrulesbook.com/). The book is _The Rules of Golf in Plain
English_ by Jeffrey S. Kuhn and Bryan A. Garner. Father's Day is in June,
right?

Thanks for reading.
