   Through  its case studies, this book solidly reinforces the concept, as Audre Lorde
explains, that single-issue research and organizing is ineffective because we do not
lead single-issue lives.

Jonathan Handel writes about issues surrounding labor relations and industrial democ-
racy in the Hollywood entertainment industry.
   His  latest book, Entertainment Labor:  An  Interdisciplinary Bibliography, is
extremely well researched, providing both depth and breadth in its coverage. The bib-
liography consists of 30 chapters and is multi-disciplinary, including social science
articles and books, legal articles and books, and  books  about labor  and class.
Entertainment  Labor includes numerous   annotations, a 90-page index, a detailed
chapter on materials available from unions and guilds themselves, capsule descrip-
tions of legal cases, page references, and URLs.
   Handel references a wide range of relevant material from books, reports, articles,
theses and dissertations, websites and blogs, audiovisual material, and statutes and
regulations. The two largest sections-Legal Articles and Reports (40 pages) and
Foreign Organizations (10 pages)-demonstrate  the extensive references.
   The bibliography would  be useful to academics, attorneys, or legal scholars who
study or work with the entertainment unions and graduate students interested in enter-
tainment labor issues. It is a user-friendly and accessible bibliography to assist research
in the field.

Recent years have witnessed a resurgence in the global popularity of Indian culture,
perhaps to levels not witnessed since the Beatles visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in
1968. A  diaspora of both professionals and laborers has resulted in the creation of
Indian communities  across the world, and with these communities has come the pro-
liferation of foodways and the popularization of Bollywood movies, many of which
now  play in major theater chains across the United States. In fact, Indian characters are
central to several popular American sitcoms, although often as crude ethnic stereo-
types, while British movies such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) feature
middle-class white folks finding redemption and shedding inhibitions upon arriving
on that often mystifying subcontinent-Orientalism at its most charming.
   Those outside of India might therefore have been forgiven their ignorance of that
nation's legacy of environmental damage, poverty, militarism, and exploitation-but
