Santi Visalli - Icons Vianello Libri
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This fascinating book details icons of three crucial decades of the 20th century, personalities who left their unique mark in the field of politics, art, music, and movie. Santi Visalli lived at the same distance from the famous people he decided to photograph as the general public did. He wanted to show what we all saw, but from his own special perspective. Every one of Visalli's photographs is a surprise, because the only study of the subject consists in what the photographer knows, reads and understands; not in a fake interview, in a studied pose or in a statement. Visalli looks through the lens of the culture of his time, and his pictures capture the period with precision. This is an atlas of contemporary American history, it's the Sistine Chapel of what the USA was in those years. Portraits in the book include: Rebecca Keinmann, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Leigh Taylor Young, Ultraviolet, Alberto Sordi, Andre Kertesz, Pablo Neruda, Bruno Bettelheim, Timothy Leary, Alberto Burri, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Luciana Pigntelli, Mario Soldati, Arthur Miller, Jesse Owens, Cassius Clay, Peggy Fleming, Ruggero Orlando, Martin Luther King, Jr., Aristitelis Onassis, Robert Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr., Caroline Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Farah Diba with the Shah and prince Ciro, Charlie Chaplin, Sophia Loren, Jackie Bisset, Jane Fonda with Roger Vadim, Marlon Brando, Charles Bronson, Brigitte Bardot, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Moffo, Liv Ullmann, Elliott Gould, Anthony Quinn, Vittorio Gassman, Giancarlo Giannini and Burt Lancaster.

Power & Protest Harvard University Press
2003 Phi Alpha Theta Best First Book prize In a brilliantly conceived book, Jeremi Suri puts the tumultuous 1960s into a truly international perspective in the first study to examine the connections between great power diplomacy and global social protest. Profoundly disturbed by increasing social and political discontent, Cold War powers united on the international front, in the policy of detente. Though reflecting traditional balance of power considerations, detente thus also developed from a common urge for stability among leaders who by the late 1960s were worried about increasingly threatening domestic social activism. In the early part of the decade, Cold War pressures simultaneously inspired activists and constrained leaders; within a few years activism turned revolutionary on a global scale. Suri examines the decade through leaders and protesters on three continents, including Mao Zedong, Charles de Gaulle, Martin Luther King Jr., Daniel Cohn-Bendit, and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. He describes connections between policy and protest from the Berkeley riots to the Prague Spring, from the Paris strikes to massive unrest in Wuhan, China. Designed to protect the existing political order and repress movements for change, detente gradually isolated politics from the public. The growth of distrust and disillusion in nearly every society left a lasting legacy of global unrest, fragmentation, and unprecedented public skepticism toward authority.
American Dream Oxford University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"The American Dream" is one of the most familiar and resonant phrases in our national lexicon, so familiar that we seldom pause to ask its origin, its history, or what it actually means.§In this fascinating short history, Jim Cullen explores the meaning of the American Dream, or rather the several American Dreams that have both reflected and shaped American identity from the Pilgrims to the present. Cullen begins by noting that the United States, unlike most other nations, defines itself not on the facts of blood, religion, language, geography, or shared history, but on a set of ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence and consolidated in the Constitution.§At the core of these ideals lies the ambiguous but galvanizing concept of the American Dream, a concept that for better and worse has proven to be amazingly elastic and durable for hundreds of years and across racial, class, and other demographic lines. Cullen then traces a series of overlapping§American dreams: the quest for of religious freedom that brought the Pilgrims to the "New World"; the political freedom promised in the Declaration; the dream of upward mobility, embodied most fully in the figure of Abraham Lincoln; the dream of home ownership, from homestead to suburb; the intensely idealistic-and largely unrealized-dream of equality articulated most vividly by Martin Luther King, Jr. The version of the American Dream that dominates our own time--what Cullen calls "the Dream§of the Coast"--is one of personal fulfillment, of fame and fortune all the more alluring if achieved without obvious effort, which finds its most insidious expression in the culture of Hollywood.§For anyone seeking to understand a shifting but central idea in American history, The American Dream is an interpretive tour de force.
