Showdown in Desire portrays the Black Panther Party in New Orleans in 1970, a year that included a shootout with the police on Piety Street, the creation of survival programs, and the daylong standoff between the Panthers and the police in the Desire housing development. Through interviews with Malik Rahim, the Panther; Robert H. King, Panther and member of the Angola 3; Larry Preston Williams, the black policeman; Moon Landrieu, the mayor; Henry Faggen, the Desire resident; Robert Glass, the white lawyer; Jerome LeDoux, the black priest; William Barnwell, the white priest; and many others, Orissa Arend tells a nuanced story that unfolds amid guns, tear gas, desperate poverty, oppression, and inflammatory rhetoric to capture the palpable spirit of rebellion, resistance, and revolution of an incendiary summer in New Orleans.

This first sociohistorical study of the evolution of black detectives and other African American characters in crime and detective fiction identifies stereotypical images of blacks and probes the implied values and collective fantasies found in this genre. Bailey argues that a "mythology of race" consisting of themes of sex and savagery exists in the U.S. and is perpetuated in popular culture. Additionally, fourteen crime and detective fiction writers present their views on creating black characters and a directory includes a sampling of cases featuring black characters, a list of black detectives, relevant works of fiction, film, television, and more.

The extraordinary flowering of Southern literary talent in the early twentieth century has re-emerged in recent decades. The astonishing output of these newer fiction writers, poets, dramatists, and journalists constitutes a phenomenon worthy of being called a Second Southern Literary Renaissance. Retaining the same format as in their acclaimed Fifty Southern Writers before 1900 and Fifty Southern Writers after 1900, editors Joseph M. Flora and Robert Bain have developed two new volumes on contemporary Southern writers. The first, focusing on fiction, comprises forty-nine talented novelists, including such popular figures as Pat Conroy, Gail Godwin, T.R. Pearson, Anne Tyler, and Alice Walker. The forthcoming companion volume will cover primarily poets, playwrights, and essayists. The essays, written by scholars and critics, present in each case a biographical sketch, an analysis of style and themes, an assessment of reviews and scholarship, a chronological list of works, and a bibliography of selected criticism. Collectively, these bio-bibliographical studies clearly demonstrate the state and strength of Southern letters.

Adult books are categorized by genre (i.e., fiction, mystery, science fiction, nonfiction). Along with bibliographic information, the expected date of publication and the names of literary agents for individual titles are provided. Starred reviews serve several functions: In the adult section, they mark potential bestsellers, major promotions, book club selections, and just very good books; in the children's section, they denote books of very high quality. The unsigned reviews manage to be discerning and sometimes quite critical.
