Eric Hobsbawm (1917-2012) wrote that Latin America was the only region of the world outside Europe which he felt he knew well and where he felt entirely at home. He claimed this was because it was the only part of the Third World whose two principal languages, Spanish and Portuguese, were within his reach. But he was also, of course, attracted by the potential for social revolution in Latin America. After the triumph of Fidel Castro in Cuba in January 1959, and even more after the defeat of the American attempt to overthrow him at the Bay of Pigs in April 1961, 'there was not an intellectual in Europe or the USA', he wrote, 'who was not under the spell of Latin America, a continent apparently bubbling with the lava of social revolutions'. 'The Third World brought the hope of revolution back to the First in the 1960s'. The two great international inspirations were Cuba and Vietnam, 'triumphs not only of revolution, but of Davids against Goliaths, of the weak against the all-powerful'.

The last decade has seen the rise of artists who have rejected academia to embrace urban culture as their inspiration. The exhibition Viva la Revoluci n: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape represents the pinnacle of this progression through an epic convergence of 20 artists from around the world. The urban landscape serves as the inspiration and canvas in an exhibition comprised of four parts: work inside the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), Public Commissions and Interventions, Bombing, and a Collaborative Site. Barry McGee, Moris, Ryan McGinness, Mark Bradford, Dr. Lakra, Swoon, Os Gemoes and others contribute paintings, prints, sculpture, murals, and installations, while Invader and Shepard Fairey create large outdoor murals and Dzine embellishes the city with tricked out pedicabs. This companion catalogue to the exhibition includes essays by curator Pedro Alonzo and Alex Baker, and a preface by Hugh M. Davies.

"Viva la Revolucion!" translates to mean "Long live the revolution." This book is dedicated to those popular culture tidbits that carried a revolutionary theme, ten movies and a short story. This book is written because there appears to be a systematic attempt by the American power structure to use its awesome media to "dilute" the word revolution in much the same way that its overuse of such terms as "cool," "booty call," "get-go" and "funky" have done. White folks use of a term is a sign to black folks that it's time to switch up and change our terminology, our dance moves, our handshakes and other cultural nuances that the majority culture tends to rip off in order to sound and appear "urbane." The word revolution is not new to America because America was conceived in one. But America was fighting for white privilege and what you are seeing in the America of the present-day are battles being waged by the very groups that the white male omitted even when he was claiming this to be "one country, indivisible." This book is a primer for these newfangled "warriors" who want to make a statement but when all is said and done, don't really know their collective asses from a hole in the ground. This book includes a popular seller that I wrote in tribute to Sam Greenlee, a 38-year retrospective of The Spook Who Sat by the Door. Other movies that contain a revolutionary theme include Invasion of the Body Snatchers, " both versions of "Red Dawn," "Badge 373," "Invasion USA," the "Rampage Series" (three movies - 'Rampage, ' 'Rampage: Capital Punishment' and 'Rampage: President Down') and "Triple 9." A short story by Thomas Wolfe, "A Child by Tiger" is also added for reasons that will be explained. I conclude with an excerpt dedicated to Assata Shakur and a conclusion that asks, "Is revolution possible?" After reading this tome, you be the judge.
VIVE LA REVOLUTION is an uproariously serious work of history - brilliantly funny and insightful, it puts the peculiarity of individual people back at the centre of the story.
Author: Mark Steel
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
For most of us, the French Revolution has been reduced to jokes about Marie-Antoinette, guillotines and the Scarlet Pimpernel. But for Mark Steel, bestselling author of REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL, the French Revolution was one of the most inspirational moments in human history - a moment when ordinary people changed the world and became extraordinary. It deserves better jokes than that. In this revolutionary new book, Steel banishes stuffiness from history, telling us what happened in France between the storming of the Bastille and the rise of Napoleon, bringing to life the people who made them happen. His account is dominated by bizarre events and splendid characters, from the famously odd Robespierre, Danton and Thomas Paine, to the less well known Drouet, the local postman who arrested the fleeing King because he recognised him as the man off of the money. VIVE LA REVOLUTION is an uproariously serious work of history - brilliantly funny and insightful, it puts the peculiarity of individual people back at the centre of the story.
