Leather and Lace: Becoming a Porn Star

Lisa is a 22-year-old woman that goes by the name of Lace while she's on stage at the Pink Pussy Cat Club. A stripper during the nights, she goes out for auditions during the day but has been having a hard time becoming a starlet in California. One night she meets a man named Don, who happens to go by Leather, and everything changes after…

Robert faced a slow and often troubled process of legitimating his authority, restoring government, rewarding his supporters, accommodating former enemies, and controlling the various regions of his kingdom, none of which was achieved overnight. Penman investigates Robert’s resettlement of lands and offices, the development of Scotland’s parliaments, his handling of plots to overthrow him, his relations with his family and allies, his piety and court ethos, and his conscious development of an image of kingship through the use of ceremony and symbol. In doing so, Penman repositions Robert within the context of wider European political change, religion, culture, and national identity as well as recurrent crises of famine and disease.
