Summary:

“People will be arguing over Nixon at the Movies as much as, for more than half a century, the country at large has been arguing about Nixon.”—Greil Marcus Richard Nixon and the film industry arrived in Southern California in the same year, 1913, and they shared a long and complex history. The president screened Patton multiple times before and during the invasion of Cambodia, for example. In this unique blend of political biography, cultural history, and film criticism, Mark Feeney recounts in detail Nixon’s enthusiastic viewing habits during his presidency, and takes a new and often revelatory approach to Nixon’s career and Hollywood’s, seeing aspects of Nixon’s character, and the nation’s, refracted and reimagined in film. Nixon at the Movies is a “virtuosic” examination of a man, a culture, and a country in a time of tumult (Slate). “By Feeney's count, Nixon, an unabashed film buff, watched more than 500 movies during the 67 months of his presidency, all carefully listed in an appendix titled ‘What the President Saw and When He Saw It.’ Nixon concentrated intently on whatever was on the screen; he refused to leave even if the picture was a dud and everyone around him was restless. He was omnivorous, would watch anything, though he did have his preferences…Only rarely did he watch R-rated or foreign films. He liked happy endings. Movies were obviously a means of escape for him, and as the Watergate noose tightened, he spent ever more time in the screening room.”—The New York Times

Summary:

Sans doute destiné à l'origine à une petite élite intellectuelle, politique et médiatique, Couleurs primaires est devenu, en vingt-quatre heures, l'événement littéraire de ces vingt dernières années aux Etats-Unis. "Œuvre de pure fiction de la première à la dernière ligne", ce roman raconte la campagne de Jack et Susan Stanton, couple ambitieux et sans scrupules, dans leur course à la présidence des Etats-Unis en 1992. Malgré une accumulation de bavures et de scandales, Jack Stanton, jeune gouverneur d'un tout petit Etat du Sud, brillantissime orateur, mais aussi coureur et menteur invétéré, véritable caméléon s'adaptant à toutes les situations et à tous les interlocuteurs, parvient à se jouer de ses adversaires grâce à son entourage, qui lui est entièrement dévoué, et à ses qualités de tribun. La maîtrise avec laquelle Anonyme décrit le couple dans son intimité, à travers ses machinations et au sein du petit cercle en vase clos où se querellent et parfois s'accouplent les membres de son minuscule état-major a suscité jusqu'au 18 juillet 1996 des discussions enflammées dans les milieux politiques et médiatiques américains, tout comme la véritable identité de l'auteur, longtemps demeurée secrète, ce qui a fait dire à Bill Clinton : Depuis que je suis à la Maison-Blanche, c'est l'unique secret qui ait été bien gardé. " Ne devant rien ni aux ragots ni au mystère entretenu autour de son auteur, ce qui aurait pu être un banal succès de scandale est bel et bien un livre clef. Après sa lecture, on ne peut plus suivre les aléas de la politique américaine de la même façon. Couleurs primaires nous rappelle que le leadership présidentiel américain, donc en quelque sorte le destin du monde (le monde c'est mon nombril), dépend d'un jeu de hasard truqué, d'une partie de poker où tous les coups sont permis. Ça fait froid dans le dos, non ? Edward Behr

Summary:

The President of the United States, says the Constitution, cannot act in many specified instances without the "advice and consent" of Congress. But "advice" is not a strong word. And taking or not taking advice is a fairly nebulous situation . . . creating an instability, a fundamental ambiguity, at the very heart of power, between the Congress and the President. It is this instability, and this wide-openness, that allows the free play of the more intangible types of power that begin where the constitution breaks off: sex, personality, and character. Things which are left out of civics textbooks are what Allen Drury took as his subject in such novels as Advise and Consent, A Shade of Difference, and Capable of Honor.

Summary:

From Louis Brandeis to Robert Bork to Clarence Thomas, the nomination of federal judges has generated intense political conflict. With the coming retirement of one or more Supreme Court Justices--and threats to filibuster lower court judges--the selection process is likely to be, once again, the center of red-hot partisan debate. In Advice and Consent, two leading legal scholars, Lee Epstein and Jeffrey A. Segal, offer a brief, illuminating Baedeker to this highly important procedure, discussing everything from constitutional background, to crucial differences in the nomination of judges and justices, to the role of the Judiciary Committee in vetting nominees. Epstein and Segal shed light on the role played by the media, by the American Bar Association, and by special interest groups (whose efforts helped defeat Judge Bork). Though it is often assumed that political clashes over nominees are a new phenomenon, the authors argue that the appointment of justices and judges has always been a highly contentious process--one largely driven by ideological and partisan concerns. The reader discovers how presidents and the senate have tried to remake the bench, ranging from FDR's controversial "court packing" scheme to the Senate's creation in 1978 of 35 new appellate and 117 district court judgeships, allowing the Democrats to shape the judiciary for years. The authors conclude with possible "reforms," from the so-called nuclear option, whereby a majority of the Senate could vote to prohibit filibusters, to the even more dramatic suggestion that Congress eliminate a judge's life tenure either by term limits or compulsory retirement. With key appointments looming on the horizon, Advice and Consent provides everything concerned citizens need to know to understand the partisan rows that surround the judicial nominating process.

Summary:

Un vieil historien ronchon, unijambiste et condamné au fauteuil roulant, plaqué au surplus par sa douce, s'occupe à trier des archives de famille pour tenter de conjurer comme il peut la mort qui guette au prochain tournant - ou à celui d'après si l'on veut rester optimiste. C'est ainsi qu'il va tomber sur des lettres laissées par sa grand-mère, une jeune femme des années 1860 qui parcourt l'Ouest sauvage à la suite de son prospecteur de mari - et dont la vie, passée au milieu de paysages grandioses, ne sera qu'une suite (plutôt mouvementée) de dégringolades et de désillusions... Publié en 1971, couronné par le prix Pulitzer, Angle d'équilibre a été rangé par le New York Times dans sa sélection des " 100 meilleurs romans du siècle ".
