Albert Schweitzer in Thought and Action: A Life in Parts

James Carleton-Paget

Albert Schweitzer in Thought and Action: A Life in Parts by James Carleton-PagetIn the 1940s and 1950s, Albert Schweitzer was one of the best-known figures on the world stage. Courted by monarchs, world statesmen, and distinguished figures from the literary, musical, and scientific fields, Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952, cementing his place as one of the great intellectual leaders of his time.

Bear: The Life and Times of Augustus Owsley Stanley III by Robert Greenfield

Augustus Owsley Stanley III, better known by his nickname, Bear, was one of the most iconic figures in the cultural revolution that changed both America and the world during the 1960s.

Owsley's high octane rocket fuel enabled Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters to put on the Acid Tests. It also powered much of what happened on stage at Monterey Pop. Owsley turned on Pete Townshend of The Who and Jimi Hendrix. The shipment of LSD that Owsley sent John Lennon resulted in The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour album and film.

Fighting Blind: A Green Beret's Story of Extraordinary Courage

Fighting Blind: A Green Beret's Story of Extraordinary Courage by Ivan Castro & Jim DeFelice

Fighting was a practiced routine for Lieutenant Ivan Castro. But when a mortar round struck the rooftop of his sniper's post in Iraq, he found himself in a battle more difficult than even he could have imagined. The direct hit killed two other soldiers and nearly claimed Castro's life as well. Mangled by shrapnel and badly burned, Castro was medevac'd to Germany more dead than alive. His lungs were collapsed. He couldn't hear. One eye had been blown out, the nerve to the other severed.

In the weeks and months that followed, Castro would find that physical darkness was nothing compared to the...

James Dean: Rebel Life

John Howlett

Revered by fresh generations of fans born years after his untimely death, the glamor of his limited but incandescent legacy of cinematic classics - East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant - will never fade. Drawn from extensive research and original interviews, James Dean: Rebel Life strips back the hype to reveal the man behind the myth. Filled with the testimonies of the actors, directors and ex-lovers who knew Dean best, and...

The Muckers: A Narrative of the Crapshooters Club

William Osborne Dapping

The Muckers: A Narrative of the Crapshooters Club by William Osborne Dapping

In 1899, William Osborne Dapping was a Harvard-bound nineteen-year-old when he began writing down exploits from his rough childhood in the immigrant slums of New York City. Now published for the first time, The Muckers: A Narrative of the Crapshooters Club recovers a long-lost fictionalized account of Dapping's life in a gang of rowdy boys. Simultaneously a polished work of social reform literature and a rejoinder to the era's alarming exposes of the "dangerous classes," The Muckers stands as an important reform era primary document.

The thinly disguised autobiographical narrative is told in...

An Oneida Indian in Foreign Waters: The Life of Chief Chapman Scanandoah, 1870-1953

Laurence M. Hauptman

An Oneida Indian in Foreign Waters: The Life of Chief Chapman Scanandoah, 1870-1953 by Laurence M. Hauptman

Chief Chapman Scanandoah (1870-1953) was a decorated Navy veteran who served in the Spanish-American War, a skilled mechanic, and a prize-winning agronomist who helped develop the Iroquois Village at the New York State Fair. He was also a historian, linguist, philosopher, and early leader of the Oneida land claims movement. However, his fame among the Oneida people and among many of his Hodinöhsö:ni' contemporaries today rests with his career as an inventor.

In the era of Thomas Edison, Scanandoah challenged the stereotypes of the day that too often portrayed Native Americans as primitive,...

Irène Némirovsky succeeded in creating a brilliant career as a novelist in the 1930s, only to have her life cut short: a "foreign Jew" in France, she was deported in 1942 and died in Auschwitz. But her two young daughters survived, and as adults they brought their mother back to life. In 2004, Suite française, Némirovsky's posthumous novel, became an international best seller; some critics, however, condemned her as a "self-hating Jew" whose earlier works were rife with anti-Semitic stereotypes....

I found the man who could tell me. He was Ray Noury, who flew with my father over Europe in late 1943; saved my father's life; and, after my wounded father was shipped home, became the lone survivor of a doomed crew that was shot down in February 1944. When I met Ray in 2013, only five months before his own death at age 90, he told me the story of a B-24 nicknamed Miss Fortune. Ray talked about Miss Fortune's crew members, their families, and a village...

Tracing the Moon: A memoir of a woman's journey in India

Tracing the Moon: A memoir of a woman's journey in India by Kumari Ellis

One night, on the HIV/AIDS ward of a busy London hospital, a young nurse named Judith saw something that changed her life. At the bedside of a dying patient, she witnessed an amazing human moment. As the veil lifted between life and death she stood in silent awe as her patient passed with peaceful surrender.

Over the course of his lifetime, Turner strove to liberate painting from an antiquated system of patronage. Bringing a new level of expression and color to his canvases, he paved the way for the modern artist.

Turner was very much a man of his changing era. In his lifetime, he saw Britain ravaged by Napoleonic wars, revived by the Industrial Revolution, and embarked upon a new moment...

Willis Duke Weatherford: Race, Religion, and Reform in the American South

Willis Duke Weatherford: Race, Religion, and Reform in the American South by Andrew McNeill Canady

At the turn of the twentieth century, few white, southern leaders would speak out in favor of racial equality for fear of being dismissed as too progressive. Willis Duke Weatherford (1875--1970), however, defied convention as one of the first prominent white southern liberals to dedicate his life to reforming the South's social system, eliminating violence and injustice through education, and opening a dialogue among the affected groups.
