Duty, Honor, Country : The Life and Legacy of Prescott Bush

Duty, Honor, Country : The Life and Legacy of Prescott Bush

Book Description Prescott Bush is the only person in U.S. history to be father of a U.S. President, grandfather of a U.S. President, and grandfather of a state governor. Duty, Honor, Country is more than a biography of the U.S. Senator from Connecticut, although it is that. It looks at the principles that Prescott Bush passed on like family heirlooms to his five children, including George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States: discipline, duty, ethics, commitment, courage, honor, honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. And it looks at the ways the Bush family legacy has made Prescott Bush, former President George Bush, George W. Bush, and Jeb Bush give themselves to public service. "My father believed in the concept of noblesse oblige," said former President George Bush. "You made your money and you had a duty to serve the community or your country." Written with the encouragement and enthusiasm of former President Bush, the book is a readable story of noblesse...

Ayn Rand

Book Description Ayn Rand made a profound impact as both a philosopher who founded a school of social thought, Objectivism, and as a novelist of penetrating insight and vision. Her works are founded on heroic ideals, demonstrating the maxim that, "man?s ego is the fountainhead of human progress." The photos and illustrations in this volume have been hand-selected from the Ayn Rand Archives, and most have never been published. They include personal mementos of a Petersburg childhood, her family and their home on Nevsky Prospect; photos from her early years in America; personal papers, including her list of the twelve publishers who passed on The Fountainhead ; original newspaper articles, film posters, notes, drawings, and much more. In a recent poll conducted by the Library of Congress and the Book-of-the-Month Club, Rand?s Atlas Shrugged was voted the novel most influential to American readers. This latest volume of the acclaimed Overlook Illustrated...
The 20th-Century Muse

The 20th-Century Muse

Book DescriptionIn the shadows cast by many of the world's greatest artists, one often finds the figure of The Muse: spouse or lover, protector or demon, patron or artist themselves--but always a main source of inspiration. Georgia O'Keeffe with Alfred Stieglitz; Gala with Paul Eluard and then with Salvador Dali; Nico with Andy Warhol; Frida Kahlo with Diego Rivera; Jean Marais with Jean Cocteau; Gena Rowlands with John Cassavetes: every art, from painting to writing to filmmaking to music, has a rich history of these fateful partnerships. What does the artist see in his muse? Why is artistic inspiration so often incarnated by the female form? This illuminating, surprising, and absorbing book, richly illustrated with archival photography, sketches, handwritten letters, paintings, and highly personal ephemera, examines some 24 couples whose pairings have left an indelible mark on 20th-century art. In each case, the authors find, their passion and intimacy proved to be the germ of...
Sacred Passions: The Life and Music of Manuel De Falla

Sacred Passions: The Life and Music of Manuel De Falla

Book DescriptionThe work of composer Manuel de Falla (1876-1946) ranges from late-romantic salon pieces to evocations of flamenco to stark neoclassicism. Yet his music has met with conflicting reactions, depending on the audience. In his native Spain, Falla is considered the most innovative composer of the first half of the twentieth century. Likewise, in the United States, Falla enjoyed a strong following in the concert hall. But many of his works, especially some of the "colorful" or "exotic" dances from The Three-Cornered Hat and El Amor Brujo, were taken up during the Latin music craze of the 1930s and 40s and appeared in everything from jazz and pop arrangements to MGM musicals. Similarly enigmatic are the details of Falla's life. He never sustaineda lasting, intimate relationship with a woman, yet he created compelling female roles for the lyric stage. Although he became incensed when publishers altered his music, he more than once tinkered with Chopin and Debussy. Despite...

Michelle Herman

The Middle Of Everything: Memoirs Of Motherhood

Book DescriptionWhen she was three months old, Michelle Herman's daughter, Grace, went on a hunger strike. At six, she suffered what can only be described, in the old-fashioned way, as a breakdown. And at the ripe old age of eight, she began a study of the nature of "true romance." Motherhood may come naturally, but it doesn't necessarily come easily-certainly not as easily as it seemed to this mother when she vowed to do a better job than her own mother had. But the real trouble started when Herman decided that "better" wasn't good enough: she would be the perfect mother. A memoir from the front lines of motherhood by a longtime writer of fiction, The Middle of Everything weaves a daughter's memories of her Brooklyn childhood in the 1950s and 1960s, and the shadow cast on it by her own young mother's paralyzing depression, with a middle-aged woman's account of trying to break her mother's mold by meeting her own child's every need. A story of love of all kinds, of work and...

Enrique Granados: Poet Of The Piano

Book DescriptionEnrique Granados (1867-1916) is one of the most compelling figures of the late-Romantic period in music. During his return voyage to Spain after the premiere of his opera Goyescas at New York's Metropolitan Opera in 1916, a German submarine torpedoed the ship on which he and his wife were sailing, and they perished in the waters of the English Channel. His death was mourned on both sides of the Atlantic as a stunning loss to the music world, for he had died at the pinnacle of his career, and his late works held the promise of greater things to come. Granados was among the leading pianists of his time, and his eloquence at the keyboard inspired critics to dub him the "poet of the piano." In Enrique Granados: Poet of the Piano, Walter AaronClark offers the first substantive study in English of this virtuoso pianist, composer, and music pedagogue. While providing detailed analyses of his major works for voice, piano, and the stage, Clark argues that Granados's art...

Brother Ray: Ray Charles' Own Story (10 аудиокассет)

Audio Cassette. Ray Charles (1930-2004) led one of the most extraordinary lives of any popular musician. In Brother Ray, he reveals his story unsparingly, from the chronicle of his musical development to his heroin addiction to his tangled romantic life. Overcoming poverty, blindness, the loss of his parents, and the pervasive racism of the era, Ray Charles was acclaimed worldwide as a genius by the age of thirty-two. By combining the influences of gospel, jazz, blues, and country music, he invented, almost single-handedly, what became known as “soul.” And throughout a career spanning more than a half century, Ray Charles remained in complete control of his life and his music, allowing nobody to tell him what he could or couldn’t do.
