Summary:

The New York Times–bestselling novel by the critically acclaimed author of Native Speaker and A Gesture Life. At 59, Jerry Battle is coasting through life. His favorite pastime is flying his small plane high above Long Island. Aloft, he can escape from the troubles that plague his family, neighbors, and loved ones on the ground. But he can't stay in the air forever. Only months before his 60th birthday, a culmination of family crises finally pull Jerry down from his emotionally distant course. Jerry learns that his family's stability is in jeopardy. His father, Hank, is growing increasingly unhappy in his assisted living facility. His son, Jack, has taken over the family landscaping business but is running it into bankruptcy. His daughter, Theresa, has become pregnant and has been diagnosed with cancer. His longtime girlfriend, Rita, who helped raise his children, has now moved in with another man. And Jerry still has unanswered questions that he must face regarding the circumstances surrounding the death of his late wife. Since the day his wife died, Jerry has turned avoiding conflict into an art form-the perfect expression being his solitary flights from which he can look down on a world that appears serene and unscathed. From his comfortable distance, he can't see the messy details, let alone begin to confront them. But Jerry is learning that in avoiding conflict, he is also avoiding contact with the people he loves most.

Summary:

The author was smitten by aviation early in World War II when buzzed by two AAC P-40 Warhawks, changing his career goal from tugboat captain to pilot in one fleeting moment. He soon could detail all of the front-line aircraft and even identify them by the sound of their passing overhead. Growing up in Connecticut, he had the opportunity to watch the development of the Sikorsky helicopters and the Chance-Vought aircraft, albeit from a distance. Long bicycle rides to airports in the area merely whetted his appetite further. Shortly after graduation from the U. S. Coast Guard Academy, he was selected to attend U. S. Navy Flight Training at Pensacola and Corpus Christi., and then assigned to the Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, NC. “Aloft” relates the experiences of a 23-year career in Coast Guard Aviation in many different roles; a career that was punctuated by the good, the bad and everything in between, but never far from where the action was. Retiring from the Coast Guard as the Commanding Officer of the Air Station Cape Cod, MA, he launched his second career in aviation, most of it in the new aircraft production, or the modification of existing aircraft. “Aloft” provides insights into the transition from military aviation, to the industrial world of constant pressures, union tension, tight schedules and unstable economies. Throughout the book, the reader will found the thread of aviation and its lore woven through fast-moving vignettes.

Summary:

In the essays collected here William Langewiesche considers how flying has altered not only how we move about the earth, but also how we view our world and our place in it. With vivid descriptions of the aesthetics and excitement of flight, Langewiesche also writes of the risks that go with this beauty: the perils of air traffic control, and the dangers of nervous passengers and bad weather. Full of spare and elegant prose, Aloft is a fascinating journey into the new, profound dimension that flight has added to the human experience.

Summary:

A major history of the impact of Caribbean migration to the United States. Marcus Garvey, Claude McKay, Claudia Jones, C.L.R. James, Stokely Carmichael, Louis Farakhan -- the roster of immigrants from the Caribbean who have made a profound impact on the development of radical politics in the United States is extensive. In this magisterial and lavishly illustrated work, Winston James focuses on the twentieth century's first waves of immigrants from the Caribbean and their contribution to political dissidence in America. Examining the way in which the characteristics of the societies they left shaped their perceptions of the land to which they traveled, Winston James draws sharp differences between Hispanic and English-speaking arrivals. He explores the interconnections between the Cuban independence struggle, Puerto Rican nationalism, Afro-American feminism, and black communism in the first turbulent decades of the twentieth century. He also provides fascinating insights into the impact of Puerto Rican radicalism in New York City and recounts the remarkable story of Afro-Cuban radicalism in Florida.
