As innovations in military technologies race toward ever-greater levels of automation and autonomy, debates over the ethics of violent technologies tread water. Death Machines reframes these debates, arguing that the way we conceive of the ethics of contemporary warfare is itself imbued with a set of bio-technological rationalities that work as limits. The task for critical thought must therefore be to unpack, engage, and challenge these limits. Drawing on the work of Hannah Arendt, the book offers a close reading of the technology-biopolitics-complex that informs and produces contemporary subjectivities, highlighting the perilous implications this has for how we think about the ethics of political violence, both now and in the future.

ass kicked, kid.” Flag replied. “I didn't spend the money to brawl with a thug.

One of the most impressive facts about death today is how much and in how many different ways various aspects of death and dying are undergoing dramatic changes. Edwin Shneidman has compiled this volume to give the reader a broad-ranging view of current trends in thanatology. The result is a remarkable compendium of pertinent insights upon which to build an understanding of death in our time - death as it relates to our comprehension of ourselves and our fellow beings. Edwin S. Shneidman, Ph. D., was Professor of Thanatology (the study of death and its surrounding circumstances, as in forensic medicine) and Director of the Laboratory for the Study of Life-Threatening Behavior at the University of California at Los Angeles.

All machines suddenly come to life for some reason and go on a rampage to kill every human being on the planet. It's kind of like that movie "Maximum Overdrive," only ten time as fucking brutal! Welcome to the Big Old Gaylord Opryland Resort! Do you lack the energy to get a date? Are you batshit insane and looking for a cure? Are you a pants-shitting senior who wants to stop being old? Do you hate Stephen King? Then, this weekend, there's a seminar for you! Sure, there's a comet flying through space bringing all machinery to life and killing everybody, but don't worry about that! Here, have a sandwich! Visit our many attractions! See our massive convention center (of "death"), our beautiful atrium (of "death"), and our arcade (of "death")! Ignore the massive senior citizen orgy. Don't talk to the kid in the wheelchair. We guarantee the elevator will "not" transform you into a cyborg. Mr. Coffee "isn't" trying to kill you. And there is absolutely nothing suspicious going on in the basement. (Don't go down there though, "seriously"). Take a load off, have a good time, and prepare to "die"! Death Machines of Death is an apocalyptic horror comedy by Vince Kramer that just so happens to be a million times better than anything you've ever read before. And if you think for one minute that those boring literary classics like "The Great Gatsby" or "Moby Dick" are better than this, then you're fucking stupid!

Dazzling, highly stylised, excessively violent and brimming with sex, blaxploitation films enjoyed a brief but memorable moment in motion picture history. Never before, and never since, have so many African-American performers been featured in films, not in bit parts, but in name-above-the title starring roles. Here's a new and appreciative look back at a distinctly American motion picture phenomenon, the first truly comprehensive examination of the genre, its films, its trends and its far-reaching impact, covering more than 240 Blaxploitation films in detail. This is the primary reference book on the genre, covering not just the films' heyday (1971-1976) but the entire decade (1970-1980). Includes: film posters and ads
