Summary:

In the early 1930s, George Raft, an actor and dancer from New York City's Hell's Kitchen, gained a name for himself playing stylish and charismatic gangsters in films like 1932's original Scarface. Raft's own real-life connection to the New York mob added frightening authenticity to his portrayals, and his star quality coincided with the peak years of the Hollywood factory to produce a remarkable track record of successful movies. Although he was highly regarded during his lifetime as a performer, his reputation as an actor suffered a steep decline after his death. This definitive study of all of Raft's films offers intimate insight into all of his productions, including casts, characters, technical credits, and story synopses, and dispels a number of myths surrounding his legendary career.

Summary:

Cold War Friendships explores the plight of the Asian ally of the American wars in Korea and Vietnam. Enlisted into proxy warfare, this figure is not a friend but a "friendly," a wartime convenience enlisted to serve a superpower. It is through this deeply unequal relation, however, that the Cold War friendly secures her own integrity and insists upon her place in the neocolonial imperium. This study reads a set of highly enterprising wartime subjects who make their way to the US via difficult attachments. American forces ventured into newly postcolonial Korea and Vietnam, both plunged into civil wars, to draw the dividing line of the Cold War. The strange success of containment and militarization in Korea unraveled in Vietnam, but the friendly marks the significant continuity between these hot wars. In both cases, the friendly justified the fight: she was also a political necessity who redeployed cold war alliances, and, remarkably, made her way to America. As subjects in process--and indeed, proto-Americans--these figures are prime literary subjects, whose processes of becoming are on full display in Asian American novels and testimonies of these wars. Literary writings on both of these conflicts are presently burgeoning, and Cold War Friendships performs close analyses of key texts whose stylistic constraints and contradictions--shot through with political and historical nuance--present complex gestures of alliance.

Summary:

The rich and colorful story of America's most popular music and the singers and songwriters who captivated, entertained, and consoled listeners throughout the twentieth century--based on the upcoming eight-part film series to air on PBS in September 2019 This gorgeously illustrated and hugely entertaining history begins where country music itself emerged: the American South, where people sang to themselves and to their families at home and in church, and where they danced to fiddle tunes on Saturday nights. With the birth of radio in the 1920s, the songs moved from small towns, mountain hollers, and the wide-open West to become the music of an entire nation--a diverse range of sounds and styles from honky tonk to gospel to bluegrass to rockabilly, leading up through the decades to the music's massive commercial success today. But above all, Country Music is the story of the musicians. Here is Hank Williams's tragic honky tonk life, Dolly Parton rising to fame from a dirt-poor childhood, and Loretta Lynn turning her experiences into songs that spoke to women everywhere. Here too are interviews with the genre's biggest stars, including the likes of Merle Haggard to Garth Brooks to Rosanne Cash. Rife with rare photographs and endlessly fascinating anecdotes, the stories in this sweeping yet intimate history will captivate longtime country fans and introduce new listeners to an extraordinary body of music that lies at the very center of the American experience.

Summary:

Elle a survécu. Il pensait l'avoir tuée. Elle veut se venger. Il va la retrouver. Elle a survécu. Il pensait l'avoir tuée. Elle veut se venger. Il va la retrouver. 1931, Chicago. Traqué par la police, Harper Curtis, un marginal violent, se réfugie dans une maison abandonnée. A l'intérieur, il a une vision : des visages de femmes, auréolés de lumière. Il comprend qu'il doit les trouver... et les tuer. Dans sa transe, Harper découvre que grâce à cette demeure, il peut voyager dans le temps. Débute alors sa croisade meurtrière à travers le XXe siècle : années 1950, 1970, 1990... D'une décennie à l'autre, il sème la mort sur son passage, laissant en guise de signature des indices anachroniques sur le corps de ses victimes. Mais l'une d'elles survit aux terribles blessures qu'il lui a infligées. Et va tout faire pour le retrouver.

Summary:

Quel lien entre la législation de l'avortement et la baisse de la criminalité aux États-Unis ? Quelles sont les vraies motivations des agents immobiliers ? Pourquoi les revendeurs de drogue vivent-ils plus longtemps chez leur mère ? L'économie, vue sous cet angle, incongru en apparence, mais qui est celui de la plus sérieuse rationalité des agents, des comportements, des causes et effets, traite de sujets peu conventionnels. Elle a reçu un nom : freakonomics, ou " économie saugrenue ". Elle jette une lumière de biais sur le désordre des événements ; elle met à nu des a priori à prétention de scientificité irréfutable ; elle transforme notre regard sur le monde globalisé, qui nous apparaît, pour finir, moins impénétrable et incompréhensible.
