Tipping the Sacred Cow: The Best of LiP: Informed Revolt, 1996__2007 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tipping the Sacred Cow is a flabbergastingly refreshing smarty-pants collection of iconoclastic politics, culture, sex, and humor culled from the uncompromising, eclectic, and frequently laugh-out-loud pages of LiP Magazine. Author Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz describes LiP as “Marvelous! . . . Witty, but substantial . . . there's simply nothing that comes close to it in the culture today."

Gleefully skewering shibboleths across the political continuum, the radical brain trust gathered here by editor Brian Awehali takes critical aim at everything from women-first feminism, green capitalism, and queer assimilation and gay marriage as participatory patriarchy, to the uses and abuses of shoplifting, the currently fashionable cult of catastrophism, and the prefabrication of political speech. Between broadsides, stops are made for a lively community flag burning, intentionally comedic genderqueer erotica, and other items of pointed mirth.

Contributors include Lisa Jervis, Winona LaDuke, Tim Wise, Heather Rogers, Iain Boal, Mattilda a.k.a. Matt Bernstein Sycamore, Neal Pollack, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Michael Eric Dyson, damali ayo, Tim Kreider, Christopher Hitchens, and Mary Roach, among others.

Brian Awehali is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in or on Britannica.com, Z Magazine, AlterNet, Tikkun, The Black World Today, and High Times. He is a tribal member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, but makes his home in Oakland, California. Under his editorial guidance, LiP garnered a host of awards and nominations, including Best Online Cultural Coverage and Best New Title from Utne, People's Choice from South by Southwest, Best Magazine from Clamor Magazine, Best Political Magazine from East Bay Express, and two Project Censored selections.

Synopsis:

A collection of essays and ephemera that proves politics minus fun equals banal zealotry.
