Opis - West of Eden is the definitive story of Hollywood, told, in their own words, by the people on the inside: Lauren Bacall, Arthur Miller, Dennis Hopper, Frank Gehry, Ring Lardner, Joan Didion, Stephen Sondheim - all interviewed by Jean Stein, who grew up in the Forties in a fairytale mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The book takes us from the discovery of oil in the Twenties with the story of the tycoon Edward Doheny (There Will Be Blood) and traces the growth of corruption through the syndicates, the mob, and the movie studios - from the beginnings of the film industry to the end, with News Corp. and Rupert Murdoch (who bought the Stein mansion in 1985). West of Eden is about money, power, fame and terrible secrets: the doomed Hollywood of the late Fifties, early Sixties - the rotten heart of paradise Like her last book, the best-selling Edie, this is an oral history told through brilliantly edited interviews. As this is Hollywood, a book full of sex, drugs and celebrity glamour; but because it's built from the firsthand accounts of people who were actually there, many of them writers, actors and artists, it's also strangely claustrophobic, seductive, and completely compelling.

West of Hell's Fringe University of Oklahoma Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When the remaining Indian lands of Old Oklahoma were made available for settlement in a series of openings beginning in 1889, thousands of people flocked to the region to try for a homestead. It was a grand chance for a new life. Unfortunately, ahead of, with, and after the homeseekers came the dregs of human society: those who would steal, kill-do anything to avoid working for even the necessities of life. Most of these outlaws operated across the imaginary border between Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory-called Hell's Fringe by the early U.S. deputy marshals. At first the felons eluded pursuers by fleeing across Hell's Fringe into Indian Territory, where Oklahoma lawmen were forbidden to set foot. Not so the federal marshals. They could and did cross the border, sometimes deputizing territorial lawmen as federal officers and taking them along. Glenn Shirley has written the definitive account of outlawry in Oklahoma Territory from the Run of '89 to statehood in 1907, putting down myths and deflating the romanticism that made heroes out of barbarians. His is the story of brave men who put their lives on the line every time they rode-because most of their quarry would rather die than surrender, and many of them did die, sometimes taking a lawman or two with them. It's the story of the Doolin and Dalton gangs, of outlaws like Dynamite Dick, Arkansas Tom, and Zip Wyatt, and of their female counterparts such as Tom King (Flora Quick), Cattle Annie, and Little Breeches. If you're looking for Robin Hoods, you won't find them here. But you will find something much better: Glenn Shirley's saga of the determined men who brought an orderly system of freedom and justice to one of America's last frontiers. Glenn Shirley, wrote hundreds of articles for anthologies, journals, and magazines. He is the author of many books including Temple Houston: Lawyer with a Gun, Belle Starr and Her Times, and Shotgun for Hire: The Story of "Deacon" Jim Miller, Killer of Pat Garrett, all published by the University of Oklahoma Press. "Shirley is a meticulous researcher and he knows well the literature of Oklahoma outlaws. Historical scholarship is updated on nearly a score of notorious characters, including Bill Doolin, the Daltons, Tulsa Jack, Arkansas Tom, Bob and Bill Christian, Al and Frank Jennings, Cattle Annie and Little Breeches....Descriptions of land runs and characterizations of settlers are excellent. The politics of territorial law enforcement and the problem of dishonesty among officers receive attention....Social history, how life actually was on one of our last frontiers, abounds....This is an important book, long overdue." -Arizona and the West "It is, without doubt, the best work to date on a complex subject. Lavishly illustrated and easy to read, the book is a must for anyone wanting a rousing good-and highly professional-work of Western history." -Journal of the West "This is a fine book, the best available on crime, criminals, and the federal peace officer in Oklahoma Territory from 1889 to 1907. It is well documented, written in an inviting style, and it should receive deserved attention from those interested in the authentic story of law and order in the American West." -Southwestern Historical Quarterly. "Well-chosen photos and illustrations accentuate this substantial work, which will probably remain the standard treatment for many years." -Western Historical Quarterly

Emancipation of the West Indies Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Emancipation of the West Indies: A Six Months' Tour in Antigua, Barbadoes, and Jamaica, in the Year 1837 It is hardly possible that the success of British West India Emancipation should be more conclusively proved, than it has been by the absence among us of the exultation which awaited its failure. So many thousands of the citizens of the United Slates, without counting slaveholders, would not have suffered their prophesyings to be falsified, if they could have found whereof to manufacture fulfilment. But it is remarkable that, even since the first of August, 1834, the evils of West India emancipation on the lips of the advocates of slavery, or, as the most of them nicely prefer to be termed, the opponents of abolition, have remained in the future tense. The bad reports of the newspapers, spiritless as they have been compared with the predictions, have been traceable, on the slightest inspection, not to emancipation, but to the illegal continuance of slavery, under the cover of its legal substitute. Not the slightest reference to the rash act, whereby the thirty thousand slaves of Antigua were immediately "turned loose," now mingles with the croaking which strives to defend our republican slavery against argument and common sense. The Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society, deemed it important that the silence which the pro-slavery press of the United States has seemed so desirous to maintain in regard to what is strangely enough termed the "great experiment of freedom," should be thoroughly broken up by a publication of facts and testimony collected on the spot. To this end. Rev. James A. Thome, and Joseph H. Kimball, Esq., were deputed to the West Indies to make the proper investigations. Of their qualifications for the task, the subsequent pages will furnish the best evidence: it is proper, however, to remark, that Mr. Thome is thoroughly acquainted with our own system of slavery, being a native and still a resident of Kentucky, and the son of a slaveholder, (happily no longer so,) and that Mr. Kimball is well known as the able editor of the Herald of Freedom, published at Concord, New Hampshire. They sailed from New York, the last of November, 1836, and returned early in June, 1837. They improved a short stay at the Danish island of St. Thomas, to give a description of slavery as it exists there, which, as it appeared for the most part in the anti-slavery papers, and as it is not directly connected with the great question at issue, has not been inserted in the present volume. Hastily touching at some of the other British islands, they made Antigua, Barbadoes, and Jamaica, successively the objects of their deliberate and laborious study - as fairly presenting the three grand phases of the "experiment" - Antigua, exemplifying immediate unrestricted abolition; Barbadoes, the best working of the apprenticeship, and Jamaica the worst. Nine weeks were spent in Antigua, and the remainder of their time was divided between the other two islands. The reception of the delegates was in the highest degree favorable to the promotion of their object, and their work will show how well they have used the extraordinary facilities afforded them. The committee have, in some instances, restored testimonials which their modesty led them to suppress, showing in what estimation they themselves, as well as the object of their mission, were held by some of the most distinguished persons in the islands which they visited. So wide was the field before them, and so rich and various the fruit to be gathered, that they were tempted to go far beyond the strength supplied by the failing health they carried with them. Most nobly did they postpone every personal consideration to the interests of the cause, and the reader will, we think, agree with us, that they have achieved a result which undimini

Horatio Alger, Jr. (1832-1899) was a prolific 19th-century American author, best known for his many juvenile novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty, starting with Ragged Dick in 1868. [Critics point out that hard work itself does not rescue the boy from his fate, but rather some extraordinary act of bravery or honesty, which brings him into contact with a wealthy benefactor.] In the last decades of the 19th century, Alger's moral tone coarsened, and violence, murder, and other sensational themes entered his works.

Conditions of Peace Bewteen the East and the West (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Conditions of Peace Bewteen the East and the West We have a great unfinished problem in our own western hemisphere as to how we can secure a century of peace at home; and now to this is added another, every way more complex and difficult: how to bring the two halves of the human race into relations of permanent peace based on permanent friendship. It is this last problem I will try to discuss, though briefly and imperfectly, limiting myself to certain phases of the political and religious conditions under which the West meets the East. The Political Problem. In the political meeting of the East and the West there are many things that rasp the feelings of the people out there, and these we ought to study with great care. Politically we meet them as superiors, relegating them to the place of inferiors. This we call in international law exterritoriality. I do not think the ordinary man or woman of the West has any idea of the ceaseless friction and discord and hatred that this system of exterritoriality enforced on the East breeds in the minds of the people out there. You cannot take up a daily paper in the Eastern ports, or enter into a piazza talk at the hotels, or watch the conduct of men in the foreign settlements, without running up against some form of exterritoriality that is offensive and hateful to the people of the land. The Good Of Exterritoriality. Of course, I know that the system of exterritoriality has its good side; that it is the only way our ablest and best jurists have discovered by which commerce and international intercourse are possible on peaceful lines with the East. In the case of Japan it was the spur that hastened her adoption of Western codes of laws, and enabled her to enter among world powers as a political equal many decades sooner than might otherwise have been possible. And under this system those splendid emporiums of Yokohama, Kobe, Shanghai and others have risen from nothing to be counted among the most prosperous centres of world commerce, and, better yet, centres for the distribution of world knowledge.

Alexander Dugin traces the geopolitical development of Russia from its origins in Kievan Rus and the Russian Empire, through the peak of its global influence during the Soviet era, and finally to the current presidency of Vladimir Putin. Dugin sees Russia as the primary geopolitical pole of the land-based civilizations of the world, forever destined to be in conflict with the sea-based civilizations. At one time the pole of the seafaring civilizations was the British Empire; today it is represented by the United States and its NATO allies. Russia can only fulfill its geopolitical mission by remaining in opposition to the sea powers. Today, according to Dugin, this conflict is not only geopolitical in scope, but also ideological: Russia is the primary representative and defender of traditional values and idealism, whereas the West stands for the values of liberalism and the market-driven society. Whereas Russia began to lose sight of its mission during the 1990s and threatened to succumb to domination by the Western powers, Dugin believes that Putin has begun to correct its course and return Russia to her proper place. But the struggle is far from over: while progress has been made, Russia remains torn between its traditional nature and the temptations of globalism and Westernization, and its enemies undermine it at every turn. Dugin makes the case that it is only by remaining true to the Eurasian path that Russia can survive and flourish in any genuine sense - otherwise it will be reduced to a servile and secondary place in the world, and the forces of liberalism will dominate the world, unopposed. Alexander Dugin (b. 1962) is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia, having been active in politics there since the 1980s. In addition to the many books he has authored on political, philosophical, and spiritual topics, he is the leader of the International Eurasia Movement, which he founded. For more than a decade, he has been an advisor to Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin on geopolitical matters, and was head of the Department of Sociology at Moscow State University. Arktos has also published his books, The Fourth Political Theory (2012), Putin vs Putin: Vladimir Putin Viewed from the Right (2014), and Eurasian Mission: An Introduction to Neo-Eurasianism (2014).

#1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLERThe magnificent conclusion to Rick Atkinson's acclaimed Liberation Trilogy about the Allied triumph in Europe during World War IIIt is the twentieth century's unrivaled epic: at a staggering price, the United States and its allies liberated Europe and vanquished Hitler. In the first two volumes of his bestselling Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson recounted how the American-led coalition fought through North Africa and Italy to the threshold of victory. Now, in "The Guns at Last Light," he tells the most dramatic story of all--the titanic battle for Western Europe.D-Day marked the commencement of the final campaign of the European war, and Atkinson's riveting account of that bold gamble sets the pace for the masterly narrative that follows. The brutal fight in Normandy, the liberation of Paris, the disaster that was Operation Market Garden, the horrific Battle of the Bulge, and finally the thrust to the heart of the Third Reich--all these historic events and more come alive with a wealth of new material and a mesmerizing cast of characters. Atkinson tells the tale from the perspective of participants at every level, from presidents and generals to war-weary lieutenants and terrified teenage riflemen. When Germany at last surrenders, we understand anew both the devastating cost of this global conflagration and the enormous effort required to win the Allied victory.With the stirring final volume of this monumental trilogy, Atkinson's accomplishment is manifest. He has produced the definitive chronicle of the war that unshackled a continent and preserved freedom in the West.

I touched bottom, as alcoholics like to say, on 12 February 1983 (the date is slightly fuzzy). Thirty-one years ago John Sutherland nearly lost everything to drink. A married man, with family, working as a visiting professor of English on the west coast of America, he awoke from a blackout to find he was lying next to a stranger - a very strange stranger. This was his morning of clarity; it was time to sober up. Or die. Last Drink To LA is part reportage, part confession, in which John takes a frank look at drinking culture on both sides of the Atlantic, weighing up the pros and cons of Alcoholics Anonymous, which since its launch nearly a century ago has sparked hot debate. Is it a cult, or the best life-saver drinkers have? What John courageously 'shares' here is not a temperance tale (told to terrify, inform and instruct), not what AA calls a 'drunkalog', but a moving and thought-provoking meditation - some thinking about drinking and the devastating effects it has on individuals, families and society at large.
