Smutty Little Movies: The Creation and Regulation of Adult Video First Edition by Peter Alilunas
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 5.7 MB
Overview: In the late 1970s, the adult film industry began the transition from celluloid to home video. Smutty Little Movies traces this change and examines the cultural and legal efforts to regulate, contain, limit, or eradicate pornography. Drawing on a wide variety of materials, Smutty Little Movies de-centers the film text in favor of industry histories and contexts. In so doing, the book argues that the struggles to contain and regulate pleasure represent a primary starting point for situating adult video’s place in a larger history, not just of pornography, but of media history as a whole.

Little One by Peter Papathanasiou
Requirements: PDF Reader 12.6 MB
Overview: Peter Papathanasiou is the son of migrants and grandson of refugees. His parents emigrated from Greece to Australia in 1956 but were unable to have children, a huge sorrow – and shame – for them among Australia’s Greek community and their own family. Finally, in 1973, Peter’s uncle and aunt in Greece offeredto have a baby and give it to his parents to raise as their own in Australia. Peter was that baby, born in 1974 and given up by his biological parents so that a childless sister could become a mother.
Peter grew up an only child in Australia, finally discovering his true parentage in 1999 when his mother revealed the secret of his birth and the sacrifice that lay behind. By then, Peter’s birth mother had died, but he found he had two older brothers still living in northern Greece. This is where the story begins.
What follows is a moving and compelling memoir of family and place, as Peter traces his parents’ journey to Australia, their struggle as migrants, and the very different world that they came from – a world where the bond of family was so strong, a husband and wife were prepared to make an extraordinary gift.
