Over a century, Orly has turned from a military station into an international platform open to the world and an innovating enterprise. Created in 1918, Orly was first a military camp and quickly became a major stake during WWII as the place represented much of an interest for the Allies and the Axis. At the end of the war, the US Army Air Forces settled in for two years before the company "A�roports de Paris" was created in 1945, and the management of the airport given back to the French. Orly finally developed into a commercial gateway, organizing the first transatlantic flights and opening to international airlines. It also became a glamorous spot when American movies were shot there. Today, the airport has grown a real city in itself, becoming the heart of Orly and the business center for a whole community, competitive and innovating. This book is an invitation to journey through the evolution of Orly Airport as a mirror of our history.
Arab Modernism as World Cinema explores the radically beautiful films of Moroccan filmmaker Moumen Smihi, demonstrating the importance of Moroccan and Arab film cultures in histories of world cinema. Addressing the legacy of the Nahda or “Arab Renaissance” of the nineteenth and early twentieth century—when Arab writers and artists reenergized Arab culture by engaging with other languages and societies—Peter Limbrick argues that Smihi’s films take up the spirit of the Nahda for a new age. Examining Smihi’s oeuvre, which enacts an exchange of images and ideas between Arab and non-Arab cultures, Limbrick rethinks the relation of Arab cinema to modernism and further engages debates about the use of modernist forms by filmmakers in the Global South. This original study offers new routes for thinking about world cinema and modernism in the Middle East and North Africa, and about Arab cinema in the world.

We in the Ulysses offices think we have it hard when deadlines are approaching, those maps still don't quite fit and the sidewalk cafes and bars of St. Denis Street here in Montreal beckon on warm summer evenings. But our desk-bound troubles are minuscule compared to the harried experiences our authors endure creating the "most cultural how-to travel guides" available: wading through crowds of revelers in Chicago after the Bulls Championship win, dodging chickens and dogs on Nicaraguan highways, getting mugged in Nassau and Lisbon, or being stranded by a train derailment in Saskatchewan. Then again, these adventurers are part of the joy of traveling, of getting to the heart of a destination ... Extensive coverage of both the hot spots of the glittering Riviera and back country villages. Monaco, Nice, Marseille, and Avignon are some of the sites covered. Spend time by the sea, in casinos, or exploring hillside villages. Fine cuisine, a cultural outlook, and information on outdoor activities make this guide a must.
