The muckrakers provided journalistic accounts of the political and economic corruption and hardships caused by the power of big business in a rapidly industrializing United States. Steffens career in journalism, bohemia, radicalism and expatriation reflected the strivings of a generation seeking to free itself from the past. His classic Autobiography was virtually a textbook of revolution. After returning from Russia in 1921, he uttered the famous statement “I have seen the future, and it works.” He was a part of all that he saw, which included; the golden age of muckraking, the progressive movement, the violent emergence of organized labor, intellectual and sexual liberation of Greenwich Village before World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Versailles peace and its bitter aftermath, the stock market crash and the Great Depression. Although he never became a communist himself, he indicated his thought that only something like a communist revolution could save the United States. According to the author, he represented ‘an American tradition of grass-roots, homegrown radicalism, that owes much to personality and outrage and little to ideology of any sort.

First edition. Hardcover. New/new. N. 257 pages. With plates. Inessa Armand was a beautiful, vivacious revolutionary and mother of four, who acquired a place in the almost exclusively male history of the Russian Revolution due to her fervent political beliefs and her passionate relationship with Lenin. Married at 19, she bore her husband three children before taking her brother-in-law as her lover and having his child. From 1910-16 she and Lenin were lovers, from which time until her death in 1920 she continued to play an important role in his life, even becoming close to his wife, Nadya Krupskaya. Inessa became a leading member in Lenin's circle in Paris in 1910, a kind of lieutenant whom he used as a multi-lingual trouble-shooter and hard-punching 'front' when he wanted to stay in the background. In 1917, back in Russia, she joined the Duma in Moscow as a Bolshevik, as well as being actively involved in the city Soviet. She was also a furious feminist campaigner since she saw the revolution as being sexually chauvinist. Her political leanings were very far left and on occasion she opposed Lenin himself, as he had tempered his views for practical political reasons. Quantity Available: 1.

These observations, made by the Taubmans during their six-month stay (Jan.-June 1988) in the U.S.S.R., are typical of the candid firsthand reportage in this refreshingly down-to-earth, unpretentious travelogue. Both specialists in Soviet affairs at Amherst College (he in political science, she in Russian literature), this husband-wife team analyze Gorbachev's attempted restructuring of the Soviet Union as ``a contradictory hybrid . . . a democratic revolution from above.'' Despite the fierce conservative opposition Gorbachev faces, the authors see optimistic signs of change in workplace elections, a press that is no longer monolithic and in the stream of formerly suppressed books, films and music being released and discussed.

Villain or Victim is the story of two very different men, each relentlessly pursuing very different lives but both bound for destruction. The one, David Campbell, a likeable but lonely young man, witnesses his family suffer as a result of the Russian Revolution and the effects of International Communism. The hatred this generates over-rides all patriotic feeling as he watches with horror the tide of war turn and realises that the defeat of Germany at the hands of the Russians will lead in turn to the eventual occupation of all Europe by the Stalinist hordes. Throughout the war he transmits vital information to his country's foes in the belief that stopping Stalin is more important than defeating Hitler. The other man knows no principles, being driven only by perverted sexual passion and the need to gratify his desire for the power of life and death. Operating in blacked-out Glasgow, he strikes terror into the hearts of a whole community. Both escape detection, but both die of a broken neck., Itelsor, 2001, NY: The Olympia Press, 1971. 1st Edition in English? 288 pages in an attractive/durable full-cloth binding. "Free love was one of the first ideals of the October Revolution - but it took ever so little time for the new Bolshevik bosses to realize the dangers inherent in such a foolhardy principle, and to impose a rigid code of moral ethics on the masses: no dictator can reign over men who are sexually free. Half a century later, we find the great Stalinian beast bursting at the seams. Gentle, moderate social and cultural satire has done more in recent years to undermine the monolith than all the attacks launched by the capitalist states. But here comes MOSCOW NIGHTS. This flamboyant, sexually aggressive and joyously iconoclastic satire goes much further than anything printed to this day."

FROM THE PUBLISHER - A ROLLICKING STORY OF THE STRANGEST CREATIVE WRITING CLASS EVER— AS ONLY ANDREI CODRESCU COULD TELL IT. Intro to Poetry Writing is always like this: a long labor, a breach birth, or, obversely, mining in the dark. You take healthy young Americans used to sunshine (aided sometimes by Xanax and Adderall), you blindfold them and lead them by the hand into a labyrinth made from bones. Then you tell them their assignment: ‘Find the Grail. You have a New York minute to get it.’ —The Poetry Lesson The Poetry Lesson is a hilarious account of the first day of a creative writing course taught by a ‘typical fin-de-siècle salaried beatnik’—one with an antic imagination, an outsized personality and libido, and an endless store of entertaining literary anecdotes, reliable or otherwise. Neither a novel nor a memoir but mimicking aspects of each, The Poetry Lesson is pure Andrei Codrescu: irreverent, unconventional, brilliant, and always funny. Codrescu takes readers into the strange classroom and even stranger mind of a poet and English professor on the eve of retirement as he begins to teach his final semester of Intro to Poetry Writing. As he introduces his students to THE TOOLS OF POETRY (a list that includes a goat-skin dream notebook, hypnosis, and cable TV) and THE TEN MUSES OF POETRY (mishearing, misunderstanding, mistranslating. ), and assigns each of them a tutelary ‘Ghost-Companion’ poet, the teacher recalls wild tales from his coming of age as a poet in the 1960s and 1970s, even as he speculates about the lives and poetic and sexual potential of his twenty-first-century students. From arguing that his friend Allen Ginsberg wasn’t actually gay to telling about the time William Burroughs’s funeral procession stopped at McDonald’s, The Poetry Lesson is a thoroughly entertaining portrait of an inimitable poet, teacher, and storyteller. ‘The Poetry Lesson is a gem—a consistently engaging and entertainingly rambling meditation on teaching and poetry that is filled with Andrei Codrescu’s quicksilver mental responses. His teacher-narrator keeps vacillating between denouncing the new, text-message order of his students and trying to ally himself with youth against old-fogeyism. This dance, as the teacher is alternately chagrined and amused, gives the book a lively pulse.’ —Phillip Lopate, author of Notes on Sontag. Andrei Codrescu is a Romanian-born American poet, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and commentator for National Public Radio. He was Mac Curdy Distinguished Professor of English at Louisiana State University from 1984 until his retirement in 2009. Born as Andrei Perlmutter on December 20, 1946 in Sibiu, Romania, he published his first poems in Romanian under the pen name Andrei Steiu. In 1965 he left the country to escape from the communist regime. After some time in Italy, he emigrated to the United States in 1966, and settled in Detroit where he became a regular at John Sinclair’s Artists and Writers’ Workshop. A year later he moved to New York where he became part of the literary scene on the Lower East Side. There he met Allen Ginsberg, Ted Berrigan, and Anne Waldman, and published his first poems in English. In 1970, his poetry book, License to Carry a Gun, won the ‘Big Table Award’. He moved to San Francisco in 1970, and lived on the West Coast for seven years, four of those in Monte Rio, a Sonoma County town on the Russian River. He also lived in Baltimore (where he taught at Johns Hopkins University), New Orleans and Baton Rouge, publishing a book every year, and actively participating in literary life by writing poetry, stories, essays and reviews for many publications, including The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Harper's, and the Paris Review. He had regular columns in The Baltimore Sun, the City Paper, Architecture, Funny Times, Gambit Weekly, and Neon. He has been a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s news program, All Things Considered, since 1983. He won the 1995 Peabody Award for the film Road Scholar, an American road saga that he wrote and starred in, and is a two-time winner of the Pushcart Prize. He has been called ‘one of our most magical writers’ by The New York Times. In 1989, Codrescu's coverage of the Romanian Revolution of 1989 for National Public Radio and ABC News’ Nightline, was critically acclaimed, and his renewed interest in Romanian language and literature led to new work written in Romanian, including ‘Miracle and Catastrophe’, a book-length interview conducted by the theologian Robert Lazu, and ‘The Forgiven Submarine’, an epic poem written in collaboration with poet Ruxandra Cesereanu, which won the 2008 Romania Radio Cultural award. His books were translated into Romanian by Ioana Avadani, Ioana Ieronim, Carmen Firan, Rodica Grigore, and Lacrimioara Stoie. In 2005 he was awarded the prestigious international Ovidius Prize (also known as the Ovid Prize), previous winners of which include Mario Vargas Llosa, Amos Oz, and Orhan Pamuk. In 1981, Codrescu became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He is the editor and founder of the online journal Exquisite Corpse, a journal of ‘books and ideas’. He reigned as King of the Krewe du Vieux for the 2002 New Orleans Mardi Gras season. He has two children, Lucian and Tristan, from his marriage to Alice Henderson, and is currently married to Laura Cole. ISBN: 9780691147246., New York : Harpercollins Publishers, 2008. 1st Edition.

Description: xix, 458 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. Subjects: Performing arts --United States --History --20th century --Europeans --Refugees. Summary: During the first half of the twentieth century-decades of war and revolution in Europe-an "intellectual migration" relocated thousands of artists and thinkers to the United States, including some of Europe's supreme performing artists, filmmakers, playwrights, and choreographers. For them, America proved to be both a strange and opportune destination. A "foreign homeland" (Thomas Mann) , it would frustrate and confuse, yet afford a clarity of understanding unencumbered by native habit and bias. However inadvertently, the condition of cultural exile would promote acute inquiries into the American experience. What impact did these famous newcomers have on American culture, and how did America affect them? George Balanchine, in collaboration with Stravinsky, famously created an Americanized version of Russian classical ballet. Kurt Weill, schooled in Berlin jazz, composed a Broadway opera. Rouben Mamoulian's revolutionary Broadway productions of Porgy and Bess and Oklahoma! Drew upon Russian "total theater. " An army of German filmmakers-among them F. W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, Ernst Lubitsch, and Billy Wilder-made Hollywood more edgy and cosmopolitan. Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich redefined film sexuality. Erich Korngold upholstered the sound of the movies. Rudolf Serkin inspirationally inculcated dour Germanic canons of musical interpretation. An obscure British organist reinvented himself as "Leopold Stokowski. " However, most of these gifted émigrés to the New World found that the freedoms they enjoyed in America diluted rather than amplified their high creative ambitions. A central theme of Joseph Horowitz's study is that Russians uprooted from St. Petersburg became "Americans"-they adapted. Representatives of Germanic culture, by comparison, preached a German cultural bible-they colonized. "The polar extremes, " he writes, "were Balanchine, who shed Petipa to invent a New World template for ballet, and the conductor George Szell, who treated his American players as New World Calibans to be taught Mozart and Beethoven. " A symbiotic relationship to African American culture is another ongoing motif emerging from Horowitz's survey: the immigrants "bonded with blacks from a shared experience of marginality"; they proved immune to "the growing pains of a young high culture separating from parents and former slaves alike".

New. Paperback. A riotous, bitingly funny, and supremely clever novel from one of our most distinctive voices in the English language. The year is 1970, and Keith Nearing, a twenty-year-old literature student, is spending his summer vacation in a castle on a mountainside in Italy. The Sexual Revolution is in full-swinga historical moment of unprecedented opportunityand Keith and his friends are immediately caught up in its chaotic, ecstatic throes. Yet they soon discover a disturbing truth: between the death of one social order and the birth of another, there exists a state of liminal purgatory, once described by the Russian thinker Alexander Herzen as a pregnant widow. As Amis deftly explores the repercussions and consequences of that one summer, he presents us with a precise and poignant portrait of the liberating possibilities, and the haunting consequences, of change. Expertly written and full of wit and pathos, The Pregnant Widow is Amis at his fearless best. This item ships from multiple locations.

Midwest Book Review august 2011Football WifeJan Thatcher AdamsFranklin Green Publishingfootballwifethebook. com9781936487042, 16. 95, amazon. comThere is an ever growing library of memoirs and biographies of professional football players. What is far more infrequent is a candid memoir penned by the wife of a professional football player. Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL as Mrs. Karl Kassulke is an exceptional example of just such an autobiography. Jan Adams sometimes brutally candid memoir is a superbly written account by an extraordinary woman in her own right. Adams had a twenty-five year career as a physician who in the1990s accompanied Dr. Patch Adamson a tour through Russian hospitals, orphanages, nursing homes, refugee camps, and more. Perhaps her crowning professional achievement was founding Marias Children International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing art supports and funding to more than 600 Russian orphans, as well as similar projects in Mexico. But while her professional career was exemplary, her marriage to Viking NFL player Karl Kassulke (whom she met playing powderpuff football) was not. Football Wife is a story that incorporates drug abuse, alcoholism, marital infidelity, the impact of the cult of personality. It is also a personal history of a series of medical problems that began when Adams suffered a head injury in a traffic accident in 1985; spinal problems and a paralyzed leg in 2002; an undiagnosed severe illness in Russia in 2007 only to be followed by a diagnosis of cancer later that same year; reconstructive foot surgery in 2010; and the necessity of a pacemaker installed in 2011. In Football Wife the reader is informed of the good times and the bad times, it is an remarkable account of struggle, failure, and ultimate redemption. A gripping read from beginning to end, Football Wife is deftly written, keenly insightful, occasionally inspiring, the singular life of a singular woman, and especially recommended reading for anyone struggling with familial issues complicated by medical traumas, and impacted by celebrity, success, and the siren call of hubris. Additional information - The compelling, funny, and poignant story of the unlikelymarriage of a pro football player and an aspiring doctor. Jan Thatcher, a wide-eyed Iowa freshman coed, met Karl Kassulke in 1962 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, where he was a football hero about to enter the world of NFL football. Told from Jans perspective, Football Wife is set in a time when America was rapidly changing from conservative to free wheeling, from closet alcoholism to an awakening to the consequences of alcohol abuse. All the while, the sexual, racial, and womens revolutions were raging. A true story told with memories of love and compassion, its cautionary message offers hope to anyone struggling with destructive issues in their relationships.

An important stylistic force in twentieth-century Russian literature, Boris Pilnyak never shied from controversy. His incendiary stories melded sexual themes with his doubts about the Soviet Union; his frank portrayal of mother-son incest in The Nizhni Novgorod -- taken as a comment on the revolution of February 1917 -- became the catalyst for his persecution. This collection serves as a valuable introduction to the authors greatest stories. The acclaimed translation by Vera T. Reck and Michael Green makes Pilnyaks prose accessible to contemporary audiences while maintaining his evocative voice. This item ships from multiple locations.

" One of the leading poets and cultural icons of the 20th century, Stephen Spender was a prominent writer, literary critic, and social commentator--and close friend of some of the best-know creative talents of his day. Now, in this penetrating biography, John Sutherland paints a vivid portrait of Spender and of the glittering literary world of which he was a part, drawing on exclusive access to Spender's private papers. This briskly paced, compelling narrative illuminates the vast range of Spender's literary, political, and artistic interests. We follow Spender from childhood to his days at Oxford (where he first became friends with W.H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood, and Isaiah Berlin); to his meteoric rise as poet in the 1930s, while still in his twenties; to his later years as cultural statesman, at home in both Britain and America. We witness many of the century's defining moments through Spender's eyes: the Spanish Civil War, World War II, the Cold War, the 1960s sexual revolution, and the rise of America as a cultural force. And along the way, we are introduced to many of Spender's accomplished friends, including Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, Cecil Day-Lewis, Joseph Brodsky, Lucian Freud, George Orwell, Virginia Woolf, and T.S. Eliot. Perhaps most important, Sutherland has been granted exclusive access to Spender's private papers by his wife Natasha Spender. Thus he is able to provide a far more intimate look at the poet's personal life than has appeared in previous biographies. Featuring 36 unpublished photographs, 'Stephen Spender: A Literary Life' throws light not only on this supremely gifted writer, but also on the literary and social history of the twentieth century." - dust jacket flaps. 'Hailed as a major poetic talent when T.S. Eliot at Faber & Faber published his first book, Poems, 1933, Stephen Spender (1909-1995) was a close friend of W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood, sharing in his youth their bohemian gay lifestyle. Although Spender outlived most of his famous peers, his name remains inextricably linked with the 1930s. Sutherland (Reading the Decades), a professor of modern English literature at University College London, draws on unparalleled access to Spender's private papers and makes subtle use of his autobiography,' World within World'. Sutherland's intimate and admiring portrait reveals a disarmingly honest, gentle Spender. Beginning with an engrossing account of the poet's oppressive Edwardian childhood, Sutherland charts Spender's travel, writing and relationships with seamless attention to detail and deals unfussily with Spender's change in sexual persuasion, sparked in 1934 by a passionate affair with Muriel Gardiner, a spy for the socialist underground in Vienna, and continuing with Spender's long, happy marriage to pianist Natasha Litvin. Briefly a Communist, Spender throughout his life participated in liberal causes, from crafting antifascist propaganda during the Spanish Civil War to assisting with the formation of UNESCO. By middle age he was a celebrated cultural statesman. Shrewd, laconic and beautifully paced, Sutherland's portrait of a poet and his luminary circle will absorb all readers of 20th-century literary history." - Publishers Weekly. " Despite his versatility as a man of letters, Stephen Spender never lacked for hostile critics, and even his friends could not resist twitting him: Cyril Connolly once gibed that there were two Stephen Spenders - one "an inspired simpleton, a great big silly goose, a holy Russian idiot," the other a clever operator who was "shrewd, ambitious, aggressive and ruthless." Sutherland, an able advocate, portrays Spender as a decent and unfairly maligned figure whose early success as a poet in the thirties was a "cross he bore all his life." Still, Spender moved easily in transatlantic intellectual circles, a footloose lecturer, broadcaster, and evangelist for liberal ideals during the Cold War years (although tainted by a scandal concerning the C.I.A.-funded journal Encounter, where he served as co-editor). Sutherland's authorized biography takes Spender's literary achievement as a given, but his close readings of the poems don't quite persuade one that Spender was a writer of the first rank." - The New Yorker..

From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, 'Rasputin, Grigori Yefimovich , (1872-1916) Russian “holy man”, a notorious figure at the court of Czar Nicholas II. He was a semiliterate peasant and debauchee who preached and practiced a doctrine of salvation that mixed religious fervor with sexual indulgence. Because of his personal magnetism and his ability to check the bleeding of the czarevich Alexis, who suffered from hemophilia, Rasputin gained a powerful hold over Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna and, through her, over the czar. Starting in 1911, Rasputin's appointees began to fill high positions. Rasputin never had a clear political program, but unscrupulous and reactionary officials, financiers, and ecclesiastics profited through his influence. During World War I, when the czar went (1915) to the front, Rasputin's influence predominated. Those who opposed him were often removed from their posts; fortune hunters and incompetents were appointed to replace them. Rasputin's disgraceful behavior, the czarina's attempts to shield him, and a series of scandals involving his appointees helped to undermine the imperial government. It was suspected at the time that Rasputin and the czarina were working for a separate peace with Germany. In Dec., 1916, a group of right-wing patriots, including Prince Felix Yussupov and the czar's cousin, Grand Duke Dmitri, conspired to assassinate Rasputin. A generous dose of poison failed to produce any visible effect, and the terrified conspirators riddled him with bullets and threw his body into the frozen Neva River. Later buried, Rasputin's corpse was exhumed and burned by the mob during the February Revolution of 1917.' ., Garden City Publishing Co. , 1928, Princeton. 2010.

From arguing that his friend Allen Ginsberg wasn’t actually gay to telling about the time William Burroughs’s funeral procession stopped at McDonald’s, The Poetry Lesson is a thoroughly entertaining portrait of an inimitable poet, teacher, and storyteller. ‘The Poetry Lesson is a gem—a consistently engaging and entertainingly rambling meditation on teaching and poetry that is filled with Andrei Codrescu’s quicksilver mental responses. His teacher-narrator keeps vacillating between denouncing the new, text-message order of his students and trying to ally himself with youth against old-fogeyism. This dance, as the teacher is alternately chagrined and amused, gives the book a lively pulse.’ —Phillip Lopate, author of Notes on Sontag. Andrei Codrescu is a Romanian-born American poet, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and commentator for National Public Radio. He was Mac Curdy Distinguished Professor of English at Louisiana State University from 1984 until his retirement in 2009. Born as Andrei Perlmutter on December 20, 1946 in Sibiu, Romania, he published his first poems in Romanian under the pen name Andrei Steiu. In 1965 he left the country to escape from the communist regime. After some time in Italy, he emigrated to the United States in 1966, and settled in Detroit where he became a regular at John Sinclair’s Artists and Writers’ Workshop. A year later he moved to New York where he became part of the literary scene on the Lower East Side. There he met Allen Ginsberg, Ted Berrigan, and Anne Waldman, and published his first poems in English. In 1970, his poetry book, License to Carry a Gun, won the ‘Big Table Award’. He moved to San Francisco in 1970, and lived on the West Coast for seven years, four of those in Monte Rio, a Sonoma County town on the Russian River. He also lived in Baltimore (where he taught at Johns Hopkins University), New Orleans and Baton Rouge, publishing a book every year, and actively participating in literary life by writing poetry, stories, essays and reviews for many publications, including The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Harper's, and the Paris Review. He had regular columns in The Baltimore Sun, the City Paper, Architecture, Funny Times, Gambit Weekly, and Neon. He has been a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s news program, All Things Considered, since 1983. He won the 1995 Peabody Award for the film Road Scholar, an American road saga that he wrote and starred in, and is a two-time winner of the Pushcart Prize. He has been called ‘one of our most magical writers’ by The New York Times. In 1989, Codrescu's coverage of the Romanian Revolution of 1989 for National Public Radio and ABC News’ Nightline, was critically acclaimed, and his renewed interest in Romanian language and literature led to new work written in Romanian, including ‘Miracle and Catastrophe’, a book-length interview conducted by the theologian Robert Lazu, and ‘The Forgiven Submarine’, an epic poem written in collaboration with poet Ruxandra Cesereanu, which won the 2008 Romania Radio Cultural award. His books were translated into Romanian by Ioana Avadani, Ioana Ieronim, Carmen Firan, Rodica Grigore, and Lacrimioara Stoie. In 2005 he was awarded the prestigious international Ovidius Prize (also known as the Ovid Prize), previous winners of which include Mario Vargas Llosa, Amos Oz, and Orhan Pamuk. In 1981, Codrescu became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He is the editor and founder of the online journal Exquisite Corpse, a journal of ‘books and ideas’. He reigned as King of the Krewe du Vieux for the 2002 New Orleans Mardi Gras season. He has two children, Lucian and Tristan, from his marriage to Alice Henderson, and is currently married to Laura Cole. ISBN: 9780691147246., University of Pittsburgh Press. Used - Very Good.

Steven Hoch. . . one of the best ethnographic portraits that we have of the Russian village. . . . a highly readable text that is an excellent introduction to the world of the Russian peasantry. Samuel C. RamerVillage Life in Late Tsarist Russia provides a unique firsthand portrait of peasant family life as recorded by Olga Semyonova Tian-Shanskaia, an ethnographer and painter who spent four years at the turn of the twentieth century observing the life and customs of villagers in a central Russian province. Unusual in its awareness of the rapid changes in the Russian village in the late nineteenth century and in its concentration on the treatment of women and children, Semyonovas ethnography vividly describes courting rituals, marriage and sexual practices, childbirth, infanticide, child-rearing practices, the lives of women, food and drink, work habits, and the household economy. In contrast to a tradition of rosy, romanticized descriptions of peasant communities by Russian upper-class observers, Semyonova gives an unvarnished account of the harsh living conditions and often brutal relationships within peasant families.

Fine in publishers cloth in like dustjacket. 391pp. Illustrated. 1st edition. Astolphe de Custine (1790 - 1857) was one of the last and most remarkable members of the French aristocracy. A passionate literary figure, dandy with exquisite manners, poet, playwright, essayist, traveller and extraordinarily wealthy homosexual adventurer, he was the first member of French high society to live an openly gay life. Emphatically opposed to anything or anyone who curtailed personal freedom he wrote "Russia in 1838", after a personal invitation from the Czar to visit. This book is still considered to be a better explanation of Russian totalitarianism than most written since. Custine's account of a colourful family includes a father and grandfather who were guillotined in 1793 during the French Revolution, and a mother who rescued both herself and Astolphe through trading sexual favours with her gaoler. Though Beaudelaire thought Custine a 'genius whose dandyism went so far as to encompass the ideal of negligence', others continued to describe him as 'Mme la marquise de Custine' and his house as 'Sodom and Gomorrah'.

Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin (22 January [O.S. 10 January] 1869 - 29 December [O.S. 16 December] 1916) was a Russian mystic who is perceived as having influenced the latter days of the Russian Emperor Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their only son Alexei. Rasputin had often been called the "Mad Monk", while others considered him a "strannik" (or religious pilgrim) and even a starets ("elder", a title usually reserved for monk-confessors), believing him to be a psychic and faith healer. It has been argued that Rasputin helped to discredit the tsarist government, leading to the fall of the Romanov dynasty, in 1917. Contemporary opinions saw Rasputin variously as a saintly mystic, visionary, healer and prophet or, on the contrary, as a debauched religious charlatan. There has been much uncertainty over Rasputin's life and influence as accounts of his life have often been based on dubious memoirs, hearsay and legend.. Sixth Printing. Cloth.

Soviet official culture underwent a dramatic shift in the mid-1930s, when Stalin and his fellow leaders began to promote conventional norms, patriarchal families, tsarist heroes, and Russian literary classics. For Leon Trotsky-and many later commentators-this apparent embrace of bourgeois values marked a betrayal of the October Revolution and a retreat from socialism. In the first book to address these developments fully, David L. Hoffmann argues that, far from reversing direction, the Stalinist leadership remained committed to remaking both individuals and society-and used selected elements of traditional culture to bolster the socialist order. Melding original archival research with new scholarship in the field, Hoffmann describes Soviet cultural and behavioral norms in such areas as leisure activities, social hygiene, family life, and sexuality. He demonstrates that the Soviet states campaign to effect social improvement by intervening in the lives of its citizens was not unique but echoed the efforts of other European governments, both fascist and liberal, in the interwar period. Indeed, in Europe, America, and Stalins Russia, governments sought to inculcate many of the same values-from order and efficiency to sobriety and literacy. For Hoffmann, what remains distinctive about the Soviet case is the collectivist orientation of official culture and the degree of coercion the state applied to pursue its goals.

The essays in this collection, drawn from a Hofstra University bicentennial conference on the French Revolution, seek to come to terms, often from conflicting points of view, with the complex relationship between events and their representations. The question "How did the lived experience that eventually became known as the French Revolution come to be organized?" provides a common thread for the collection. Individual chapters examine the Revolution from the vantage points of theology and philosophy, theater and literature, as well as politics and history. As the contributors show, the French Revolution was more than a series of political events that took place in one European country at the end of the 18th century. Instead, it was a trans-historical, multi-national, and multi-cultural discourse. It served as a point of reference by which and through which a complex of cultural values and styles could be defined, and as a model (even a negative model) for the elaboration of ideologies, and of political and administrative strategies for bureaucracies around the world.

"Mexican novelist, journalist, playwright, and essayist, who made his international breakthrough with 'The Death of Artemio Cruz' in 1962. Major themes in Fuentes's work are the limitless power of fantasy, the dilemma of national identity, and the promise and failure of the Mexican revolution. Fuentes has been frequently mentioned as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for literature. Fuentes has been often paired with the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borge., [but] Fuentes maintains a realistic stance of power and politics in Latin America - myths of the past and wide range of cultural references are combined with social critique. Fuentes also uses experimental techniques familiar from the nouveau roman and postmodern fiction. In later novels Fuentes has dealt the question of Mexican identity and its relationship to other cultures. Fuentes's first novel ' Where the Air Is Clear 'gave a panoramic picture of Mexico City and has been compared to John Dos Passos's novel 'Manhattan Transfer'. Fuentes' awards, include the Villaurrutia Prize (1975), Gallegos Prize (1977), Reyes Prize (1979), Mexican National Award for Literature (1984), Cervantes Prize (1987), Darío Prize (1988), New Order of Cultural Independence (1988), Prince of Asturias Prize (1994), Grinzane Cavouch International Prize (1994), National Order of Merit (1997) " - Books and Writers."After the exuberant, experimental fiction of recent years, Mexican novelist ( Terra Nostra ) and statesman Fuentes returns to the conventional literary themes and melancholic air of his earlier works, such as the gothic Aura . The title story here is narrated by an elderly American doctor who, while bemoaning his own mortality, learns in a Poe-like twist that he has been married to the ghost of a Russian emigre who died in the Spanish Civil War 49 years earlier. "La Desdichada" tells of two student roommates who half-jokingly "adopt" a lifelike store mannequin. As both become sexually involved with the mannequin, their true natures are revealed. "The Prisoner of Las Lomas" is a mischievous tale about a wealthy man imprisoned by his servants in his mansion, a state he soon comes to enjoy. "Viva Mi Fama," the collection's most powerful story, contrasts the creative power of an aging Goya with the vitality of two of his models, an actress and a bullfighter, asking: Which is more real, the subject of a work of art or the work of art itself? "Reasonable People" again explores the theme of the doppleganger, focusing on twin architects, one of whom is seduced by a rather perverse reincarnation of the Virgin Mary. Fuentes's rich interior vision and lyrical controlled prose have been beautifully captured by the translator." - Publishers Weekly. Book and dust jacket are in fine, unblemished condition..

FROM THE PUBLISHER - In 1927, Emma Goldman – free love advocate, birth control pioneer, and anarchist – began her autobiography, she kept hidden a part of her life that she feared would destroy her as a public figure. What she would not reveal was the true story of her passionate, anguished romance with Dr. Ben Reitman, a flamboyant Chicago gynecologist known for his work among hobos and the destitute. For ten tempestuous years (from 1908 to 1917) Reitman had been lover, public relations man, and political soulmate to Goldman. During their frequent absences from each other, Emma had written hundreds of letters to Reitman in which she held back none of her feelings - political, emotional, sexual - and he responded in kind. Goldman knew that ‘if ever our correspondence should be published, the world would stand aghast that I, Emma Goldman, the strong revolutionist, the daredevil, the one who has defied laws and convention, should have been as helpless as a shipwrecked crew on a foaming ocean.’ In 1975, Candace Falk, then a doctoral student in history, unearthed a cache of Goldman’s love letters to Reitman, which had remained secreted since Reitman’s death. Drawing on these and thousands of other letters and documents unavailable to previous biographers, she has written a major biography that traces Goldman’s entire life and political career from her childhood in Russia to her death in exile in Canada. Having escaped to America from a tyrannical family at age sixteen, she entered into a miserable early marriage, from which she fled to the community of anarchists in New York City. There she met, among other charismatic figures, Alexander Berkman, her ‘chum of a lifetime,’ with whom she plotted the assassination of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick. Berkman spent fourteen years in prison for his bungled attempt, while Emma launched her political career as lecturer and organizer, which was eventually to result in her expulsion from the United States in 1919. Choosing the Soviet Union as a haven, she quickly became disillusioned with the repressive aftermath of the Russian Revolution and left to live in exile in Europe and finally in Canada. During these dramatic years, her turbulent affairs with a man more than twenty years her junior, two married men, and several other lovers, including one woman, tested her oft-proclaimed belief in sexual freedom, while affirming her commitment to passion in all spheres of life. Fascinating and intensely readable, this first full-scale biography of Emma Goldman to appear in twenty-three years makes clear the connection between Goldman’s public life and political beliefs and her private life and loves, revealing how the elusive goals of love and anarchism were inextricably linked throughout her life. Candace Falk is the editor of the Emma Goldman Papers Project sponsored by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission of the National Arc hives to collect, organize, and edit the most complete collection of correspondence, government surveillance documents, newsclips, and Goldman writings for a comprehensive microfilm and selected papers book edition. The introduction to a new edition of Emma Goldman’s autobiography, Living My life, was written by Ms. Falk, who received her B.A. and M.A. at the University of Chicago and her Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The 1960s, as is well known, saw the launch of the sexual revolution, which radically affected the lives of every Westerner fortunate enough to be born after the Second World War. But a revolution is a revolution - contingent and sanguinary. In the words of the Russian thinker Alexander Herzen: The death of the contemporary forms of social order ought to gladden rather than trouble the soul. Yet what is frightening is that what the departing world leaves behind it is not an heir but a pregnant widow. Between the death of the one and the birth of the other, much water will flow by, a long night of chaos and desolation will pass. In many senses, including the literal, it was a velvet revolution; but it wasn't bloodless. Nor was it complete. Even today, in 2009, the pregnancy is still in its second trimester. Martin Amis, in "The Pregnant Widow", takes as his control experiment a long, hot summer holiday in a castle in Italy, where half a dozen young lives are afloat on the sea change of 1970. The result is a tragicomedy of manners, combining the wit of Money with the historical sense of "Time's Arrow" and "House of Meetings".. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover.

In 1961, with the Cold War at freezing point, a beautiful nineteen-year-old girl had an affair with the Secretary of State for War, John Profumo. She also had sex with a Russian spy. When the political time bomb exploded two years later, Britain's last grandee Government, that of Harold Macmillan, collapsed. But the social legacy was even more potent than the political one. As hemlines went up in the Sixties, inhibitions came down. "Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the sexual revolution as the Pill. She was the epicenter of the social and political earthquake that shook the world, but what she can now tell with mature insight will shatter all preconceptions about her and the legendary events. The political and diplomatic ramifications and the social and sexual antics of those around her were more far-reaching than ever imagined." "Recently seen FBI documents prove what Christine has always maintained about the intimate involvement of the Kennedy White House in her case and how J. Edgar Hoover took personal charge. But above all, this is the life's journey of a woman whom history has refused to let go, who can never escape being Christine Keeler. She is a headline for ever. It is a page-turning story of her enormous personal sacrifice, her unstinting resolve and her triumphant survival."--Jacket. || Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1 Nightlife, I -- 2 Fast Tracks, II -- 3 Upstairs, Downstairs, 24 -- 4 Hands On, 32 -- 5 Undressing for Dinner, 42 -- 6 Champagne Models, 58 -- 7 Traitors' Mews, 70 -- 8 Bad Luck, 89 -- 9 A Long, Hot Summer, Io2 -- 10 Love Letters, 114 -- II Cornered, i2I -- 2 The Smokin' Gun, 134 -- 13 Rabbit in the Headlines, i5i -- 14 Cruel Intentions, 158 -- 15 Confidential Agent, 178 -- 6 Midsummer Madness, I87 -- 17 Dangerous Deceptions, 20o -- 18 Rough Justice, 208 -- 19 The Trials of Christine Keeler, 215 -- 20 Lust and Marriage, 228 -- 21 Taxing Times, 242 -- 22 Such a Scandal, 253 -- Epilogue: Hindsight, 256 -- Appendix: The Christine Keeler Files, 262 -- Index. || Scandals -- Great Britain -- History -- 20th century.

While the most of authors who wrote on the subject of this revolution mention about five characteristics of it, V. Anurin points at nine. Empirical study conducted by author in the course of his research of related issues led him to conclude that a) intensity of double standard in evaluations of sexual behavior of men and women is becoming lower for younger generations and for women than for men, b) we can observe the growth of openness of sexuality, of commercialization of sexual sphere and c) age of sexual début takes place obvi-usly earlier than in case of elder generations.Judging by the data of surveys, dynamic and structure of sexual behavior of Russian youths and girls are the same as in the USA and Western Europe in the late 1960-th. 60 pp. Englisch
