Penguin Books. Paperback. New. Paperback. 416 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.3in.The 1 New York Timesbestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of timesthe improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washingtons eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young mans personal quest.

The history of enlisted military pilots from the establishment of the aviation scholl at Fort McKinley in 1912 through the early months of World War II.

Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.7in.From a top speechwriter to President George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld, this may be the most deliciously candid memoir ever written about official Washingtona laugh-out-loud cri de coeur that shows what can happen to idealism in a town driven by self-interest. Despite being raised by reliably liberal parents, Matt Latimer is, from an early age, lured by the upbeat themes of the Reagan Revolution and, in the tradition of Mary Tyler Moore, sets off from the Midwest for the big city, determined to make it after all. In Matts glory-filled daydreams, he will champion smaller government and greater self-sufficiency, lower taxes and stronger defenseand, by the force of his youthful passion, eradicate do-nothing boondoggleism and lead America to new heights of greatness. But first he has to find a job. Like an inside-the-Beltway Dante, Matt chronicles his descent into Washington, D. C. , hell, as he snares a series of increasingly loftybut unsatisfyingjobs with powerful figures on Capitol Hill. One boss cant remember basic facts. Another appears to hide from his own staff, barricading himself in his office. When Fate offers Matt a job as chief speechwriter for Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Matt finds he actually admires the man (causing his liberal friends to shake their heads in dismay), his youthful passion is renewed. But Rummy soon becomes a piata for the press, and the Department of Defense is revealed as alarmingly dysfunctional. Eventually, Matt lands at the White House, his heart aflutter with the hope that, here at last, he can fulfill his dream of penning words that will become part of historyand maybe pick up some cool souvenirs. But reality intrudes once again. More like The Office than The West Wing, the nations most storied office building is a place where the staffers who run the country are in way over their heads, and almost everything the public has been told about the major playersBush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Roveis wrong. Both a rare behind-the-scenes account that boldly names the fools and scoundrels, and a poignant lament for the principled conservatism that disappeared during the Bush presidency, Speech-less will forever change the publics view of our nations capital and the people who joust daily for its power. From the Hardcover edition. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Broadway Books, New York, NY, U.S.A.: Broadway Books, 1996. Trade Paperback. Fine. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. In Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms, Ed Rollins gives us the inside story on Washington and many of its most prominent players with sharp reflections, revealing and frequently irreverent anecdotes, and always astonishing candor. Once a champion amateur boxer, Rollins brings the pugnacious spirit of a born fighter to everything he does. Never shy about his opinions, he now delivers the kind of take-no-prisoners honesty for which he is notorious. He dissects the personalities of Richard Nixon, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, George Bush, Ross Perot, James Baker, Michael and Arianna Huffington, and Newt Gingrich. He shows how political campaigns really operate, and he offers keen insight on political figures, from Bill Clinton to Bob Dole and Pat Buchanan. Part autobiography and part political primer, this is a deeply compelling story and a highly personal look into the inner workings of government and campaigns. Ed Rollins's passion for the game and thoughtful insight into our political system make this a must-read for anyone interested in how the game of contemporary politics is really played. Who else but Ed Rollins--the brilliant, bare-knuckled political consultant--would dare give us the inside story on how Washington really works? Famously outspoken, Rollins is a true maverick whose gift for winning campaigns is matched only by his talent for generating controversy. Now, in this astonishingly candid book, he delivers a no-holds-barred, hugely entertaining account of his thirty-year career in American politics. Rollins has worked for almost every major Republican politician of the past two decades, but he was never a member of the Washington aristocracy. Raised in the tough shipyard town of Vallejo, California, he fought as a championship amateur boxer and won over 160 bouts. His love of politics was kindled when he worked for Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1968, but after Kennedy's assassination and a life-changing experience during a violent anti-war demonstration, he joined the Republican party. By 1981, he had worked his way up to a job in the Reagan White House; the following year, he became the president's top political advisor. He has battled at the center of the political arena ever since, and he and his candidates have won far more often than they have lost. If Rollins loves anything more than a good fight, it's a good story. Here is Richard Nixon complaining to him about the lack of a "nutcutter" in the Reagan administration; Nancy Reagan berating him for his atrocious attire; Barbara Bush telling him he's not welcome in the White House; Ross Perot wailing about how expensive campaign advertising is; Arianna Huffington hiring a private detective to investigate an unfriendly journalist. But Rollins has made some spectacular blunders of his own, and now he tells stories on himself too--most particularly when he provides the first full account of his role in the scandal that followed Christine Todd Whitman's election as governor of New Jersey. Ed Rollins is an American original--a power-punching, street-smart insider who loves politics and his country with equal fervor. Fast and funny, pugnacious and passionate, this is one of the best books ever written about how the modern political game is really played. 386 pages.., New York, NY, U.S.A.: Broadway Books, 1996, Random House Trade Paperbacks. Paperback. New. Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.1in. x 0.6in.1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the summer of 1962, nineteen-year-old Mimi Beardsley arrived in Washington, D. C. , to begin an internship in the White House press office. After just three days on the job, the privileged but sheltered young woman was presented to the President himself. Almost immediately, the two began an affair that would continue for the next eighteen months. Emotionally unprepared to counter the Presidents charisma and power, Mimi was also ill-equipped to handle the feelings of isolation that would follow as she fell into the double life of a college student who was also the secret lover of the most powerful man in the world. After the Presidents assassination in Dallas, she grieved alone, locked her secret away, and tried to start a new life, only to be blindsided by her past. Now, no longer defined by silence or shame, Mimi Alford finally unburdens herself with this unflinchingly honest account of her life and her extremely private moments with a very public man. This paperback edition includes a special Q and A, in which the author reflects on the intense media attention surrounding the books initial release. Once Upon a Secret is a moving story of a woman emerging from the shadows to reclaim the truth. With the benefit of hindsight and good old-fashioned maturity, Mimi Alford writes not just about the secret, but the corrosive effect of keeping that secret. . . . You cant help liking her, or her elegant and thoroughly good-natured book. The SpectatorWhat Alford sacrificed in lucre she has more than recovered in credibility and dignity.

Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.In his memoir that he began in 1908, Santiago Tafolla recalls finding himself, along with his fellow Mexican Confederate soldiers, terrorized by white Confederates. When the americanos take up arms and threaten to eliminate all the greasers, Tafolla is forced to desert to Mexico in order to survive. This fascinating autobiography recounts the life of a man born in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1837, long before Mexico lost control of the region following the Mexican-American War in 1848 and the state achieved U. S. statehood in 1912. One of the first Methodist preachers of Hispanic descent in the United States, Santiago Tafolla chronicles his life during turbulent times. An orphaned runaway, he left New Mexico in 1848 on a U. S. Wagon Train, and traveled through Missouri, New York, Washington, D. C. and the Deep South. He experienced firsthand the racism inherent to the time period and was an eyewitness to slavery. He was a veteran of the Texas Indian Wars and the Civil War, having served as a bugler in both the U. S. Army and the Confederate Army. And he spent the last 35 years of his life as a Methodist circuit-riding preacher in a time when most Hispanics were Catholics. The preservation and publication of this memoir is almost as fascinating as the life described within its pages. The handwritten, Spanish-language manuscript, left unfinished when Tafolla died at the age of 73, was passed from relative to relative until his grandson, Fidel Tafolla, took on the task of translating and transcribing it in the late 1960s. This first-ever publication of a remarkable look at life in the 19th century has been edited by Santiagos great-granddaughters, Carmen Tafolla and Laura Tafolla. It includes sample pages from the original, handwritten manuscript; the complete original Spanish manuscript; an epilogue describing the significance of Santiagos later life; the English translation; and historical photos of Santiago and his family from the 1800s. Published as part of the Recovering the U. S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project series, A Life Crossing Borders is an invaluable aid to understanding the upheavals of the 19th century in North America. An absorbing account of personal survival in a world of fluid and changing borders, it is also an affirmation of ethnic identity in a time when racial and ethnic differences were subject to greater ignorance and often, violence.
