Beyond the Footlights by Jim McDowell

Book Description

The Belfast Empire, The Royal Hippodrome and the newly restored Grand Opera House, along with the one-variety theatres such as the Gaiety and Colosseum, are all familiar names to the citizens of Belfast, yet they are only the tip of the theatrical iceberg. Long gone and buried deep are more buildings that offered regular entertainment to the populace. This book recalls the beginnings of music hall and theatre in the early seventeenth century until its final days in the mid-twentieth century. It traces the development of both, combining celebrity visits with the buildings, and placing both against a historical backdrop, accompanied by striking period sketches and illustrations.

Hamatsa by Jim McDowell Hamatsa, Paperback (March 1997)

The first book-length study of whether cannibalism existed on the Pacific Northwest coast. McDowell shows how a cannibal complex among Westerners coloured many early accounts of man-eating, and how this perception obscured the importance of ritual cannibalism in the secret Hamatsa ceremony--a crucial feature of Native spirituality.
