Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination Regnery Publishing Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

April 14, 1865. A famous actor pulls a trigger in the presidential balcony, leaps to the stage and escapes, as the president lies fatally wounded. In the panic that follows, forty-six terrified people scatter in and around Ford's Theater as soldiers take up stations by the doors and the audience surges into the streets chanting, "Burn the place down!" This is the untold story of Lincoln's assassination: the forty-six stage hands, actors, and theater workers on hand for the bewildering events in the theater that night, and what each of them witnessed in the chaos-streaked hours before John Wilkes Booth was discovered to be the culprit. In Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination, historian Thomas A. Bogar delves into previously unpublished sources to tell the story of Lincoln's assassination from behind the curtain, and the tale is shocking. Police rounded up and arrested dozens of innocent people, wasting time that allowed the real culprit to get further away. Some closely connected to John Wilkes Booth were not even questioned, while innocent witnesses were relentlessly pursued. Booth was more connected with the production than you might have known--learn how he knew each member of the cast and crew, which was a hotbed of secessionist resentment. Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination also tells the story of what happened to each of these witnesses to history, after the investigation was over--how each one lived their lives after seeing one of America's greatest presidents shot dead without warning. Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination is an exquisitely detailed look at this famous event from an entirely new angle. It is must reading for anyone fascinated with the saga of Lincoln's life and the Civil War era.

Christopher Marlowe Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Christopher Marlowe: Poet & Spy is the most thorough and detailed life of Marlowe since John Bakeless's in 1942. It has new material on Marlowe in relation to Canterbury, also on his home life, schooling, and six and a half years at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and includes fresh data on his reading, teachers, and early achievements, including a new letter with a new date for the famous 'putative portrait' of Marlowe at Cambridge. The biography uses for the first time the Latin writings of his friend Thomas Watson to illuminate Marlowe's life in London and his career as a spy (that is, as a courier and agent for the Elizabethan Privy Council). There are new accounts of him on the continent, particularly at Flushing or Vlissingen, where he was arrested. The book also more fully explains Marlowe's relations with his chief patron, Thomas Walsingham, than ever before. This is also the first biography to explore in detail Marlowe's relations with fellow playwrights such as Kyd and Shakespeare, and to show how Marlowe's relations with Shakespeare evolved from 1590 to 1593. With closer views of him in relation to the Elizabethan stage than have appeared in any biography, the book examines in detail his aims, mind, and techniques as exhibited in all of his plays, from Dido, the Tamburlaine dramas, and Doctor Faustus through to The Jew of Malta and Edward II. It offers new treatments of his evolving versions of 'The Passionate Shepherd', and displays circumstances, influences, and the bearings of Shakespeare's 'Venus and Adonis' in relation to Marlowe's 'Hero and Leander'. Throughout, there is a strong emphasis on Marlowe's friendships and so-called 'homosexuality'. Fresh information is brought to bear on his seductive use of blasphemy, his street fights, his methods of preparing himself for writing, and his atheism and religious interests. The book also explores his attraction to scientists and mathematicians such as Thomas Harriot and others in the Ralegh-Northumberland set of thinkers and experimenters. Finally, there is new data on spies and business agents such as Robert Poley, Nicholas Skeres, and Ingram Frizer, and a more exact account of the circumstances that led up to Marlowe's murder.

Rachel Khoo serves up a modern twist on classic French cooking. Rachel Khoo was determined to get to grips with French cooking, so to learn more she moved to Paris, not speaking a word of French, and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu, the world-famous cookery school. Six years later, she still lives and works in Paris, cooking up a selection of classic French dishes from all over the country and giving them a fresh makeover with her own modern twists.

The 120 recipes in the book range from easy, everyday dishes like Omelette Piperade, to summer picnics by the Seine and afternoon 'gouter' (snacks), to meals with friends and delicious desserts including classics like Creme brulee and Tarte tatin. It's a book that celebrates the very best of French home-cooking in a modern and accessible way. Real French food is no longer something only served in fancy restaurants; Rachel will show how you can add a little French culinary touch to your everyday life at home, no matter where you are in the world, or how big your kitchen is!

Laurence Sterne (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Laurence Sterne The materials for a biography of Sterne are by no means abundant. Of the earlier years of his life the only exist ing record is that preserved in the brief autobiographical memoir which, a few months before his death, be com posed, in the usual quaint staccato style Of his familiar cor respondenee, for the benefit Of his daughter. Of his child hood; of his school - days; of his life at Cambridge, and in his Yorkshire Vicarage; of his whole history, in fact, up to the age of forty-six, we know nothing more than he has there jotted down. He attained that age in the year 17 50; and at this date begins that series of his Letters, from which, for those who have the patience to sort them out of the chronological confusion in which his daughter and editress involved them, there is, no doubt, a good deal to be learnt. These letters, however, which extend down to 17 68, the year of the writer's death, contain pretty nearly all the contemporary material that we have to depend on. Freely as Sterne mixed in the best literary society, there is singularly little to be gathered about him, even in the way of chance allusion and anecdote, from the memoirs and am of his time. Of the many friends who would have been competent to write his biography while the facts were yet fresh, but one, John Wilkes, ever entertained - if he did seriously entertain - the idea of performing this pious work; and he, in spite of the entreaties of Sterne's widow.

Bill Clinton - Giving Random House

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Here, from Bill Clinton, is a call to action. Giving is an inspiring look at how each of us can change the world. First, it reveals the extraordinary and innovative efforts now being made by companies and organizations - and by individuals - to solve problems and save lives both 'down the street and around the world'. Then it urges us to seek out what each of us, 'regardless of income, available time, age, and skills', can do to help, to give people a chance to live out their dreams. Bill Clinton shares his own experiences and those of other givers, representing a global flood tide of nongovernmental, nonprofit activity. These remarkable stories demonstrate that gifts of time, skills, things, and ideas are as important and effective as contributions of money. From Bill and Melinda Gates to a six-year-old California girl named McKenzie Steiner, who organized and supervised drives to clean up the beach in her community, Clinton introduces us to both well-known and unknown heroes of giving. Among them: Dr. Paul Farmer, who grew up living in the family bus in a trailer park, vowed to devote his life to giving high-quality medical care to the poor and has built innovative public health-care clinics first in Haiti and then in Rwanda; a New York couple, in Africa for a wedding, who visited several schools in Zimbabwe and were appalled by the absence of textbooks and school supplies. They founded their own organization to gather and ship materials to thirty-five schools. After three years, the percentage of seventh-graders who pass reading tests increased from 5 percent to 60 percent; Oseola McCarty, who after seventy-five years of eking out a living by washing and ironing, gave $150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi to endow a scholarship fund for African-American students; Andre Agassi, who has created a college preparatory academy in the Las Vegas neighbourhood with the city's highest percentage of at-risk kids. 'Tennis was a stepping-stone for me,' says Agassi. 'Changing a child's life is what I always wanted to do'; Heifer International, which gave twelve goats to a Ugandan village. Within a year, Beatrice Biira's mother had earned enough money selling goat's milk to pay Beatrice's school fees and eventually to send all her children to school - and, as required, to pass on a baby goat to another family, thus multiplying the impact of the gift. Clinton speaks about men and women who traded in their corporate careers, and the fulfilment they now experience through giving. He speaks about energy-efficient practices, about progressive companies going green, about promoting fair wages and decent working conditions around the world. He shows us how one of the most important ways of giving can be an effort to change, improve, or protect a government policy. He outlines what we as individuals can do, the steps we can take, how much we should consider giving, and why our giving is so important. Bill Clinton's own actions in his post-presidential years have had an enormous impact on the lives of millions. Through his foundation and his work in the aftermath of the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, he has become an international spokesperson and model for the power of giving. 'We all have the capacity to do great things,' President Clinton says. 'My hope is that the people and stories in this book will lift spirits, touch hearts, and demonstrate that citizen activism and service can be a powerful agent of change in the world.'

Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible and gift-worthy hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet by superstar type designer Jessica Hische, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany & Co. to Wes Anderson's film Moonrise Kingdom to Penguin's own bestsellers Committed and Rules of Civility . A collaboration between Jessica Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, the series design encompasses foil-stamped paper-over-board cases in a rainbow-hued spectrum across all twenty-six book spines and a decorative stain on all three paper edges. Penguin Drop Caps debuts with an "A" for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice , a "B" for Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre , and a "C" for Willa Cather's My Ántonia , and continues with more classics from Penguin.§§E is for Eliot. Considered one the masterpieces of realist fiction, George Eliot's novel, Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life , explores a fictional nineteenth-century Midlands town in the midst of modern changes. The proposed Reform Bill promises political change; the building of railroads alters both the physical and cultural landscape; new scientific approaches to medicine incite public division; and scandal lurks behind respectability. The quiet drama of ordinary lives and flawed choices are played out in the complexly portrayed central characters of the novel - the idealistic Dorothea Brooke; the ambitious Dr. Lydgate; the spendthrift Fred Vincy; and the steadfast Mary Garth. The appearance of two outsiders further disrupts the town's equilibrium - Will Ladislaw, the spirited nephew of Dorothea's husband, the Rev. Edward Casaubon, and the sinister John Raffles, who threatens to expose the hidden past of one of the town's elite. Middlemarch displays George Eliot's clear-eyed yet humane understanding of characters caught up in the mysterious unfolding of self-knowledge.

"If we didn't write this book, we would be dying to see it published. Whenever one reads about ABB in the management literature, there is a 'no questions asked' quality of 'if ABB has done it, why can't you, it must be the right thing to do. This is the way to do it, this is what ABB have done.'"- Claudia Heimer & Kevin Barham There is almost an ABB doctrine that fascinates both scholars and managers. Why is ABB so interesting to managers and gurus alike? Why is it the world's favorite case study? Why is Percy Barnevik possibly 'the most influential manager in the world' (according to the Observer newspaper) In June 1987, Beat Hess, head of the legal department of the world-famous Swiss electro-technical firm BBC Brown Boveri, was about to take his family on a well-earned week's holiday to Italy. He was suddenly told by BBC's chairman Fritz Leutwiler and chief executive Thomas Gasser, to prepare a full draft agreement for the 'unthinkable' - negotiations for a merger with long-time rival ASEA, the Swedish power engineering firm that had been gaining ground on Brown Boveri ever since a new CEO, Percy Barnevik, had taken over in 1980. If it came off, this would be the largest cross-border merger in history. Hess was told to go ahead with his holiday if he wanted to, but that the agreement had to be completed by the first week in July. The handwritten draft with its coffee and suntan lotion stains that Hess brought back from Italy was to be the basis for what has now become a legend of corporate history. ABB has grown to be the leading power engineering company in the world. It doubled its size in six years and is now a $31 billion corporation employing 213,000 people in 50 or more countries, including all the major markets, around the globe. According to the last three years' surveys in the FT, it is Europe's most admired company and Percy Barnevik, Europe's most admired CEO. How do we make sense of what ABB has achieved? Their success, in one of the most fiercely competitive industries in the world, a success which is all the more remarkable for a company which pioneered a new form of global organization. Percy Barnevik has described the paradoxes that ABB has tried to resolve as the simultaneous attempt to be 'global and local, big and small, and radically decentralized with central reporting and control.' In essence, Barnevik and his senior colleagues at ABB have tried to resolve these contradictions by creating what we call a 'globally-connected corporation', a loose-tight network of processes and partners which can only be held together by highly committed people and strongly-held principles. The gurus fell in love with ABB very quickly...Tom Peters calls ABB a 'buckyball organization' and says that Percy Barnevik is the most insistent enemy of bureaucracy that he has ever met. Manfred Kets de Vries has described the challenge of managing ABB as 'making a giant dance', While it may not be a model for every other company, it is certainly an example of what most companies can achieve. ABB The Dancing Giant gives its reader the exciting opportunity to look through the keyhole and hear from some very interesting people around ABB, both in the corporate headquarters and locations world-wide. It will also satisfy their curiosity about the heritage of Percy Barnevik, who has almost come to personify the company. It will look at how the company is doing now that he has passed on the role of CEO to Goran Lindahl. You will be able to look behind his image and public statements and find out what other people in the company think, how they lived the story of the merger, and what life is like for them in the organization. ABB the Dancing Giant has not been written simply for the sake of a fascinating history, which it certainly is, but to ask ourselves what other managers who are faced with the challenges of globalisation can learn from the story. It will : * document the story of the merger and of ABB's growth and global expansion * catch a greater glimpse of the real story behind the company's on-going success * raise some key questions for the future of ABB - how is Goran Lindahl preparing ABB for the next Millennium? * highlight some lessons from ABB's experience for managers in other organizations facing international and global challenges * be a frank look at the good and bad of ABB and what other managers and companies can learn and implement from this story. Authors: Kevin Barham is Director of the Ashridge Center for Management and Organization Learning and a founding partner of the Global Development Partnership. His research has focused on the development of international managers - a topic where ABB itself has much to teach other organizations. Claudia Heimer is Business Director and a member of the management team of Ashridge Consulting, where she has been interested in the cultural, strategic and IT implications of globalisation Outline Contents Part One : The Birth of a Modern Giant The story of the two companies that came to form ABB, ASEA of Sweden, and BBC (Brown Boveri Corporation) of Switzerland. Includes insights into the details of the merger talks, the high emotions involved and the way that Percy Barnevik drove the negotiations to a successful outcome. Part Two : Giant Steps to the Globally-Connected Corporation Looks at ABB's global expansion and looks at ABB through a number of different lenses. Looks at ABB as the 'globally-connected corporation' and sets ABB in the context of the global transitions that more and more firms are having to make to compete in a globalised world. Includes an overview of four of the most important analyses of ABB by leading management gurus. Part Three : Reaping the Harvest The organization a decade after the merger - find out how the masterplan has worked out so far. Looks more closely at why ABB has become the world's favorite case study and at why it is an example of that rare organizational breed, a successful cross-border merger. Postscript : The Future of ABB ABB has successfully completed its first decade of existence and occupies the corporate Mount Olympus together with General Electric and Microsoft, but what does the future hold? How can ABB sustain and build on their success? How will Goran Lindahl shape up now Percy Barnevik has given him control?

The greatest thing Nicole Polizzi, aka "Snooki," ever did was by accident. But her son, Lorenzo, was never a mistake. When she and her boyfriend, Jionni, found out she was knocked up, they weren't married or engaged. She was only twenty-four and living with her parents--and she had zero baby experience. With a reckless, party girl TV persona to deal with, she had a lot to learn and discover in becoming a mother. In this funny and frank book, Nicole shares her experiences, everything from the first sonogram to the nipple-cracking shock of breastfeeding. In each chapter, she tells the unvarnished truth about pregnancy symptoms ("The High Price of Gas"), the ridiculousness of her baby registry ("Butt Paste and Boogie Wipes") and the lowdown on postpartum life ("Shit Happens"). There's a ton of useful information, including a list of must-have baby products, MILF style tips, how to keep "I'm a whale" preggers bad body image in check, and how she got into the best shape of her life within six months of giving birth. Although Nicole had to give up partying, she's embracing motherhood the only way she knows how: with a fun-loving attitude--and lots of leopard print!
