Literary Hasidism: The Life and Works of Michael Levi Rodkinson

Literary Hasidism: The Life and Works of Michael Levi Rodkinson by Jonatan Meir

Michael Levi Rodkinson (1845-1904) was a journalist, author, and publisher whose literary projects spanned numerous countries and continents.

Throughout his career, Rodkinson's writing challenged the familiar genres of the literature of Hasidism and the Haskalah, shaping the religious realities of his readers and...

A bold and deeply researched biography of a complicated cultural icon

When Helen Gurley Brown published Sex and the Single Girl in 1962, it sold more than two million copies in just three weeks, presaging the self-help boom and helping to usher in the unapologetic self-affirmation of second wave feminism. Brown declared that it was okay, even imperative, to enjoy sex outside of marriage; that equal rights for women should extend to the bedroom; that meaningful work outside the home was essential for a woman's security and self-esteem. The book catapulted Brown into national renown, cementing her...

Bullets and Bylines: From the Frontlines of Kabul, Delhi, Damascus and Beyond

Bullets and Bylines: From the Frontlines of Kabul, Delhi, Damascus and Beyond by Shyam Bhatia

War reporters tend to have shorter lives than many others in the same profession of journalism, simply because they are exposed to more day-to-day risks in remote parts of the world where timely help is a prized commodity.

Shyam Bhatia is one of the lucky few who has lived to recall and recount unique survival stories, including his eyewitness experience of a mini massacre on the Kabul to Kandahar highway, followed by his own detention, torture and daily threats of execution by the mujahidin.

The Afghan experience was followed by an equally chilling episode in southern Sudan where Bhatia??s media...

Daisies Don't Lie: Misadventures in Journalism: The Making of a Feminist

Daisies Don't Lie: Misadventures in Journalism: The Making of a Feminist by Nancy Louise LewisSynopsis:

My life in journalism, which began covering a notorious, and until now unsolved murder in Connecticut, led to attempts on my life by cops in two states. You don't have to be black to have cops wanting you dead!

I uncovered newspaper corruption wherever I went during my thirty-year career, and also found corruption and dysfunction in government at all levels. I ended up homeless, first on East Coast streets and later in New Mexico, due to the duplicitous nature of some of the papers I wrote for, which promise truth but give anything but.

Part I details my poisoning at the hands...
